Padres right-hander Jered Weaver has announced his retirement from baseball, following a 12-year career in which he racked up 150 wins, a 3.63 ERA and three All-Star berths.
Cory Spangenberg had a two-run double and a homer and Hector Sanchez also went deep, backing Dinelson Lamet, who didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning Tuesday as the Padres topped the Phillies. Rookie Jorge Alfaro broke up Lamet's no-no with a two-run homer in the fifth inning, his first big league homer. Lamet allowed two runs over seven innings with seven strikeouts. Rhys Hoskins, who hit his first two big league homers Monday, had a two-run shot Tuesday.

Even after one of the best starts of his young career, Dinelson Lamet wasn't satisfied. The rookie right-hander continued to dominate opposing lineups in the Padres' 8-4 victory against the Phillies on Tuesday night. Matching a career high with seven innings, Lamet held Philadelphia without a hit until the fifth inning.
During Spring Training, I sat down with Jered Weaver to do an interview for the Padres' podcast. We were discussing the importance of Weaver's presence in the clubhouse around the young pitchers assembled by the Padres.
Since the All-Star break, Padres infielder Cory Spangenberg is hitting .336/.413/.617 with seven home runs. Counting his lone dinger for Triple-A El Paso, Spangenberg has more homers this year (13) than any year in his life. In essence, he has become the player the Padres hoped he'd become, "and more," said manager Andy Green.
Margot's gum causes short delay in game
The Padres have a rotation's worth of starters on the disabled list, but one of them is nearing a return. Right-hander Miguel Diaz tossed two scoreless innings in the Arizona Rookie League on Tuesday night, making his first rehab appearance after exiting his June 21 against Chicago with a right forearm strain.
The hits just keep coming for Jahmai Jones. The Angels' No. 2 prospect extended his hitting streak to 18 games on Tuesday with a leadoff double in Class A Advanced Inland Empire's 2-0 win over Lake Elsinore. He also hit a single and walked once in the contest, finishing 2-for-4 at the plate.

Jose Pierla had a two-run single as part of a four-run sixth and Cory Spangenberg slugged his third home run in the last two games as the Padres raced past the Phillies in Monday's opener. Rookie Rhys Hoskins slugged his first two big league home runs and Odubel Herrera extended his career-best hit streak to 17 games.
Development in baseball is not linear for most players.
Mark McGwire arrived in Oakland in 1987, a bright-eyed rookie with a powerful swing. Before he had time to fully comprehend his status as a big leaguer, he says, he was already threatening Major League Baseball's 31-year-old rookie homer record -- held at the time by Frank Robinson and Wally Berger.
Alex Verdugo's hot streak continued as he hit his sixth homer of the season and drove in three runs in Triple-A Oklahoma City's 9-4 win over Round Rock on Monday night.
Padres general manager A.J. Preller announced Sunday the club has extended the contract of manager Andy Green.
Heading into a rubber match against the Padres, Justin Turner and Yasmani Grandal ensured that the Dodgers wouldn't lose their first series since the first week of June as they homered to push Los Angeles past San Diego, 6-4, on Sunday at Dodger Stadium.
For almost two seasons, I've had a chance to watch Andy Green lead. I am impressed. I was happy to see the Padres extend his managerial contract through the 2021 season. Was I surprised? Not in the slightest.
Andy Green's players view him as one of the smartest people in baseball. As a result, they see the Padres' move Sunday to extend their manager's contract as one of the smartest moves the organization could make.

Andy Green knows he's not watching the same Cory Spangenberg.
Brent Honeywell kept the opposing team off the board once again on Sunday as he tossed turned in his second scoreless start this week for Triple-A Durham.
Jhoulys Chacin's first career steal did little to ignite his dugout, but the way he performed on the mound against the best team in baseball certainly did.
Not that there was ever much doubt -- but the Dodgers assured themselves of a winning season with a 6-3 victory over the Padres on Saturday night. And they did so with more than a month and a half left in the regular season.
Padres rookies Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe are are quick to acknowledge that the Dodgers are the team to beat in the National League West. It's their job to change that over the next couple seasons -- and they're already doing their part.
Manuel Margot slugged two game-tying home runs and Jose Pirela led off the eighth inning with a tiebreaking shot off Ross Stripling as the Padres surprised the Dodgers with a 4-3 win Friday night at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers twice led the Padres on Friday night. Manuel Margot twice made sure the leads didn't hold.
Even before Manuel Margot hit two home runs Friday night at Dodger Stadium, it was noted that he is the first Padres rookie center fielder to hit 10 home runs in a season.
Pitching deeper into the season than he ever has before, Beau Burrows continues to get better. Burrows, Detroit's No. 4 prospect (No. 95 overall), was untouchable on Saturday as he tossed six hitless innings with eight strikeouts and two walks to pace Double-A Erie in an 11-0 rout of New Hampshire.
Myers impresses young Dodgers fan
A day later, Padres manager Andy Green wouldn't have handled his bullpen any differently than using Brad Hand in the seventh inning of Thursday's loss. Hand, the club's closer, gave up a grand slam to the Reds' Joey Votto in a San Diego loss.
More than a year after joining the Padres -- and more than two years since he last pitched in a big league game -- Carter Capps is officially on San Diego's active roster.
