Padre right fielder Tony Gwynn praised the efforts of the Qualcomm Stadium grounds crew, but the playing surface for Game 3 was still a bit choppy after the San Diego Chargers beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 13-10, here Sunday. "You're going to get a bad hop or two in the outfield, but both sides of the end zones are real smooth," Gwynn said with a chuckle, alluding to the anemic Charger offense. "The [Dan] Fouts years, the end zones were worn out, but not anymore."

As if San Diego's Al Martin didn't have enough problems, what with the alleged two wives and charges of bigamy and all. Now he's getting it in his own ballpark.

The lyrics: "American woman, get away from me, "American woman, momma let me be." Nice.
