Peavy: Injury Helps Case To Remain With Padres

Jake Peavy believes that his recent ankle injury could end up keeping him in San Diego.

"Obviously this [the injury] helps that cause with me being on this team [through the end of the season]," Peavy said on XX Sports Radio. "I never wanted anything like this to happen but it is hard to trade for a player who can't play the game of baseball."

Peavy Could Miss Up To Three Months

Jake Peavy could miss as many as three months after going on the disabled list with a nagging ankle injury.

The right-hander has been bothered by a right ankle injury since May 22, when he slid home against the Cubs.

He has a partially torn tendon in the ankle.

The Padres said on Friday night that it could be eight to 12 weeks before Peavy pitches again.

"If you are pitching with ankle pain, that could change your mechanics and then you've got other issues," trainer Todd Hutcheson said.

D-Backs Get Nine Innings Of No-Hit Ball From Bullpen

Arizona's bullpen pitched nine innings of no-hit ball in the team's 18-inning win over San Diego on Sunday.

The Diamondbacks won 9-6 on the strength of their relief pitching and Mark Reynolds' three-run, game-winning homer in the top of the 18th inning.

"I don't know how to describe that game," Arizona manager A.J. Hinch told MLB.com. "Roller-coaster emotions of being in complete control with Dan Haren, to all of our bullpen pieces being active and ready and rested, to a demoralizing game-tying home run, to nine innings of test of will between two teams. It was an exhausting game, but a happy ending for us."

Gonzalez: I Use Burritos, Not Steroids

Padres slugger Adrian Gonzalez says that burritos, not performance-enhancing drugs give him power.

"I don't see the need (to use anything illegal)," says Gonzalez. "There's no reason to. Yes, it was a part of the game. It was. You don't see guys that have come into the league over the past five years doing it. You get caught doing that stuff."

Gonzalez has 22 home runs entering Friday's action.

"Carne asada," Gonzalez says. "Tell them I eat a lot of burritos. Carne asada tacos and carne asada burritos are great."
