• After missing Tuesday's game with a sore right wrist, left fielder Carlos Quentin was back in the starting lineup Wednesday.

"It was good to give Q a day [off] after four straight days," Padres manager Bud Black said. Quentin entered the game with the fifth-highest road batting average (.333) in the league.
