Padres win another close one

Randy Wolf has been one of the best offseason FA acquisitions in recent history, and he came with a health risk warning, but tonight he was brilliant again. Wolf went 7 innings, gave up 1 run on 7 hits, while walking 2 and logging 2 K's on is way to his 4th win of the season. He used his defense behind him like it was his plan all along.

With the bases loaded in the 6th inning, Scott Hairston might have saved the game with a diving catch in the left center gap. It further shows that he's more than capable of backing up the position or getting the occasional spot start out there. He did what Edmonds can only dream of doing now.
And the day had some bad news also........While trying to avoid being hit by a ground ball between 2nd and 3rd, Iguchi came down wrong on his shoulder and seperated it. He left the game immediately and Edgar Gonzalez took over.

Iguchi to DL, likely out four to six weeks
Padres second baseman separated right shoulder Thursday
