  • Every 30-30 season, ranked by club

  • Spangenberg's HR, Erlin's strong start fall short
    Cory Spangenberg and Robbie Erlin have established themselves as useful roster pieces in San Diego -- Spangenberg as a reliable utility man, and Erlin as a left-hander capable of pitching in a number of different roles out of the 'pen. Thing is, both Erlin and Spangenberg would like to establish themselves as more than merely fringe options. In a 3-2 loss to the Angels on Wednesday night at Petco Park, each made his case.
  • Jankowski proud of elite base-stealing skills
    Travis Jankowski is fast. He's always been fast. By nature, being fast in Major League Baseball usually leads to high stolen-base totals. It does not -- as Jankowski is quick to point out -- make you a "base stealer."
  • Galvis takes leadership role in evolving infield
    The Padres are experimenting with their roster, and will continue to do so for the remainder of the season.

  • Miscue in 10th leads to heartbreaker vs. Halos
    With two teams out of playoff contention squaring off in the middle of August, Monday's Interleague contest between the Angels and the Padres at Petco Park didn't exactly set the tone for must-see baseball. Instead, the Padres delivered one of their more enticing performances of the season, only for it to all unravel in extra innings, as they fell, 6-3, in 10 innings.
  • Myers nearly ties record in debut at third base
    The ball finds you. Baseball has a funny way of indoctrinating neophyte defenders to their new positions. On Monday night, Wil Myers debuted at third base. Sure enough, he was peppered early and often by Angels hitters and nearly broke a franchise assists record in the process.
