Worth noting

• Black used a pitcher as a pinch-hitter (Eric Stults) and pinch-runner (Tyson Ross) in Tuesday's victory over the Dodgers. According to Elias, it was the first time that two Padres pitchers were used in those roles in the same game since 1998, when Joey Hamilton was used as a pinch-hitter and Pete Smith pinch-ran.
