RENE RIVERA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tony Gwynn Jr. got a great ovation in San Diego

Tony Gwynn Jr. lead off and played center field for the Phillies on Tuesday night. The Phillies were playing the Padres in San Diego at Petco Park. You can imagine what happened from there. Gwynn’s father, Baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, passed away in June following a battle with salivary cancer. This was his son’s first game in San Diego he passed away. What a fantastic...

Rivera's 10th blast buoys Padres' win over Diamondbacks

Seven months ago, Rene Rivera walked into the Padres’ spring training complex in Peoria, Ariz., hoping to stick as a third catcher. On Friday, the 31-year-old journeyman was wedged into the team’s cleanup spot for the fourth time this month, a testament to Rivera’s development into a legitimate offensive threat as much as it is to the state of the Padres’ offense. Both surged...

Brewers' Ron Roenicke rips umpire

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he might as well have thrown in the towel in the second inning Wednesday of a 10-inning, 3-2 loss to the San Diego Padres. Thanks to plate umpire Mark Ripperger, who "we've had before, and he is terrible behind home plate," Roenicke's efforts were apparently futile. Roenicke was able to keep his cool until the ninth...

Rivera lifts Padres past Brewers 3-2 in 10 innings

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Padres starter Odrisamer Despaigne summed it up best. "It was the Rene Rivera Show," he said. Rivera tied the game with a home run in the ninth inning, then won it with an RBI single in the 10th as San Diego beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 Wednesday night.

Rivera drives in career-high 5 runs, lifts Padres

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Rene Rivera remembers his last home run, three years ago next month at Oakland for the Minnesota Twins. His latest will certainly be memorable, too, and did plenty to give San Diego's inconsistent offense a boost. Rivera hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the fifth to follow his two-run double for a career-high five RBIs, single handedly backing Tyson Ross...

Rivera, Padres stun Giants in opener

In a nine-round bout that initially featured evasion from atop the mound and around the field, the Padres landed the first punch at AT&T Park. An offense that had struggled to hit its weight, up and down the lineup, socked its opponent in the gut. San Francisco counter-punched, popping San Diego in the mouth. The Padres had a counter to the counter. His name was Rene Rivera...

Shutting Down the Run Game: Hundley, Grandal, Rivera and Hedges

Base stealing is an art. The greats like Rickie Henderson, Tim Raines and Vince Coleman created beauty when they ran the bases and caused havoc on opposing pitchers, catchers and managers. A successful stolen base requires three things: a good jump, all-out commitment to the steal and a crafty slide. On the other end of things, catching a runner on the base paths requires constant...
