UPDATES & NEWS
Huston Street picked up save number 10 on Monday as he pitched a perfect ninth striking out two as the Padres defeated the Giants 6-4.
Street is now a perfect 10-for-10 in save chances in 2014, trailing only Francisco Rodriguez (12 SV) for the league-lead in the category. He is now sitting on a 0.82 ERA and 0.73 WHIP through his first 11.0 innings of work having allowed only one earned run on six hits and two walks up to this point. Considering he has now pitched back-to-back days, there is a good chance the Padres will give Street the day off on Tuesday, so plan accordingly. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Yunel Escobar said his groin is improving and will work out prior to Sunday's game.
The MRI on Escobar came back clean, so that's great news. He's still not 100-percent though and will continue to be held out. Escobar believes that he can avoid the DL and will work out prior to the game to prove it. Obviously though, if he doesn't show the improvement in the workout, the team could hold him out a little while longer. The club can go with Danny Espinosa at third and Dan Uggla at second. They also called up Emanuel Burris who can play all over the infield. Analysis: Howard Bender
