Despaigne hopes to pick up series victory over D-backs

The Padres certainly like what they see in 23-year-old rookie outfielder Rymer Liriano, who on Thursday eclipsed the one-month mark in the Major Leagues. Liriano's first month in the big leagues has offered a little bit of everything -- which isn't unusual for a rookie.

Bats go quiet as Ross' streak of quality starts ends

Starting Monday, the Padres begin their finishing kick of 2014, a stretch of 20 games over 21 days that will take them through the conclusion of a season that has been frustrating on a lot of fronts. No more so than this lost weekend in Denver, where the Padres were not only swept in a three-game series but shut out twice, the latest being a 6-0 setback on Sunday before a crowd of 26,102 at Coors Field, who probably went home wondering which team was in last place in the National League West.
