Adam Rosales' second-inning home run was the 12th the Angels have served up this season and the fourth given up by left-hander Joe Saunders . Yet, while both lead the majors, it is not of much concern to Manager Mike Scioscia only seven games into the season. "You can take any little cross section out of any season and say, ‘Well, you gave up 10 home runs or you only averaged four runs for these 10 games,'" he said. "These statistics are naked right now. It could be, early in the season, where some guys aren't really locked in as they will be. It's obviously a small sample."

While the Padres were waiting for the big hit, a superb pitching effort kept them in the game. Cha Seung Baek, Heath Bell and Bryan Corey held the Indians to four hits. Baek and Bell combined to retire 23 of 24 hitters, including 19 in a row.

SAN DIEGO -- Pitcher's park? Please. The spacious field at Petco Park was made to look like a scaled-down version of itself on Wednesday night by Manny Ramirez, who crushed a pair of two-run home runs over the fence in right-center that stands 400 feet away from home plate in the Dodgers' 7-2 victory over the San Diego Padres. The Dodgers won the rubber match of a three-game series and opened a 3 1/2 -game gap on the second-place Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West.

Hiroki Kuroda returned on Monday to the same park where he made his spectacular major league debut a year ago. Kuroda didn't pitch as long as he did that day last April and he wasn't as dominant. But he said the win he earned in the Dodgers' 4-1 victory over the San Diego Padres at Petco Park on this day was more satisfying. Or, at the very least, more stressful. "I was very conscious of the fact that they made me the opening-day starter," he said in Japanese.
