• San Diego left fielder Carlos Quentin, who left Wednesday's game in the fifth inning with soreness in his right knee, wasn't in the lineup against the D-backs on Thursday.

Quentin, who missed the previous six games before Wednesday, experienced discomfort in his surgically repaired knee during the game. There's no timetable as to when he will play again.

"If he's available to play, he'll play," Black said.

• Center fielder Cameron Maybin, who missed the first two games of the series with soreness in his left Achilles tendon, was back in the starting lineup on Thursday.
