SAN DIEGO -- When Heath Bell entered the game in the eighth inning Saturday night, San Diego fans let him know exactly what they thought of his five mostly remarkable seasons here.
Catcalls, combined with a smattering of appreciation.
Three 40-save years does not buy much any more.
Bell knew it was coming. He got the same thing last year, when he returned to Petco Park after signing a free-agent deal with the Marlins following seasons of 42, 47 and 43 saves with the Padres. That run began in 2009, when he took over as closer from Hall of Famer-in-waiting Trevor Hoffman.
Not that it bothered him Saturday. Bell got Jedd Gyorko to ground into an inning-ending double play after entering with the bases loaded and one out in an 8-1 game and finishing with a 1-2-3 ninth.
A poor reception comes with the territory for alien invaders, but some fans here seem to believe that Bell deserted the Padres. The truth is nothing like that.
Bell signed a three-year, 27 million contract with Miam...

SAN DIEGO -- Eleven feet. It might as well have been a mile.
Yonder Alonsos fly ball to deep right-center field Friday would have struck the auxiliary scoreboard and bounded back into play in every game at Petco Park in every year from 2004-12.
After renovations, the ball easily cleared the new fence in front of the Jack Daniels party patio for a two-run home run, a blow that seemed...

Volquez won his third straight start as the Padres, who took two of three from the Diamondbacks, won for the eighth time in 11 games. The D-backs...
SAN DIEGO -- Ian Kennedy barreled through the Padres' lineup without his best stuff Sunday, so close to escaping trouble that it made the Diamondbacks' 5-1 loss that much more frustrating.
After going 17 straight batters without giving up a hit, Kennedy hung changeups for home runs to two consecutive batters in the sixth inning, and that was that.
Thats what sucks about...
I don’t know what exactly is going on here, but I’m very very excited.

SAN DIEGO -- For a change, the Diamondbacks were able to step back and take a breath Saturday. After playing 21 games decided by two runs or fewer and a half a dozen that went extra innings, they found the refreshing blowout they have lacked.
