• Outfielder Carlos Quentin was out of the lineup for the Padres on Saturday after going 2-for-4 on Friday night. Manager Bud Black said he wanted to give Quentin a day off to rest the right knee he had surgery on during Spring Training. Black said Quentin would be available as a pinch-hitter or defensive substitute if he was needed.

"He's feeling good," Black said. "He came out of last night's game good. We want to keep it that way."

• Shortstop Everth Cabrera hit the first inside-the-park home run of his Major League career on Friday in San Diego's 9-5 loss. It also was the first inside-the-parker for the Padres since Aug. 5, 2010. Cabrera said it felt "really good" to come around and score, which he didn't expect to do.

"When I hit the ball I said, 'Maybe he'll catch it,'" Cabrera said. "But I kept running, and when I saw the ball get past [Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez], I thought it was a triple. But I saw the coach, 'Go, go, go, you got to go!' I said, 'Alright.'"
