Opposite directions: Giants inch toward division title as Padres' playoff hopes dim

A couple of pitchers plucked from the scrap heap are expected to get the ball in a crucial game when the first-place San Francisco Giants and fading San Diego Padres continue their three-game series Wednesday night in San Diego.

LaMonte Wade Jr.'s go-ahead single in the ninth inning in the series Tuesday opener allowed the Giants (98-53) to preserve their one-game lead atop the National League West with a 6-5 victory, while pushing the Padres (76-74) to the brink of elimination in the NL wild-card race, dropping them five games back with just 12 to play.

Injuries in the starting staff have forced managers Gabe Kapler of the Giants and Jayce Tingler of the Padres to scramble in Wednesday's rematch.
