San Diego Padres Roster Report 2009-05-16


San Diego Padres Roster Report 2009-05-16
--1B Adrian Gonzalez homered for the fifth straight game with two out in the first Friday night. The drive to right at Petco Park off RHP Aaron Harang gave him six homers in his last five games and a major league-leading 15 on the season. The Padres record for homers in consecutive games is six by Graig Nettles in 1984.

--RHP Kevin Correia on Friday night became the first Padres starting pitcher to win in 25 games dating to April 16. He got credit for the win because the Padres scored three times in the bottom of the seventh after he had been lifted for a pinch-hiter. Correia worked seven innings -- equaling the third-longest outing of his career -- and gave up three runs on five hits.

--RHP Heath Bell picked up his ninth save by working 1 1/3 innings Friday night. It marked the first time since Scott Linebrink worked 1 1/3 innings on Sept. 25, 2006, that a Padres closer went more than one inning to get the save. Bell extended his scoreless-inning streak since the start of the season to 14.

--RHP Luke Gregerson worked 2/3 of a scoreless inning Friday night just ahead of Bell as the Padres eighth-inning man du jour. Gregerson has a 0.00 ERA for 9 1/3 innings at home against a 10.61 ERA covering 9 1/3 innings on the road.

--RF Brian Giles popped out with the bases loaded in the second, then lost a line drive in the lights at Petco Park, allowing two runs to score on Correia. But in the seventh he had one of four singles in the Padres' decisive three-run rally.

SS Luis Rodriguez (sprained left ankle) left the May 13 game, and he sat out May 14. He likely will be placed on the disabled list.

He began a rehab assignment with Class A Lake Elsinore on April 28 but had a setback May 10 because of a separate strain in the same forearm. He is out indefinitely and was transferred to the 60-day DL on May 15.
