Petco Park, San Diego, California
• Summary: Jake Peavy grabbed his third win of the season, and his first major league triple as the Padres rallied past the Diamondbacks at Petco Park.
• Hero: Peavy's two-run triple accented a five-run third inning off D-Backs starter Livan Hernandez and helped the Padres take a 7-0 lead.
• Figures this: Thursday's 11 runs were the most runs the Padres scored at spacious Petco Park since July 18, when they beat Philadelphia 10-6.
• Outside the lines: Bud Black said the Padres are discussing whether to contact the league office about David Wells' ejection by umpire Doug Eddings on Wednesday. Wells, who was basting at Eddings from the dugout, said the umpire rubbed his belly and told the pitcher, "You're fat." Eddings denied this.
• Quotable: "I just text messaged him back, 'Hey, I think that thing got me messed up. It got me thinking I was a hitter and I forgot how to pitch today,'" -- Peavy recalling a text message sent to his friend Michael Barrett of the Cubs.
• Elias Says You think it's unusual for a winning pitcher to hit a home run? Maybe so, but here's something that's truly rare: Peavy hit a double and a triple. Peavy was only the second pitcher to do so since 1997. (Brandon Backe did it in 2005.) One hundred fifty-seven winning pitchers hit home runs during that time.
