Carpenter capped an eighth-inning rally with a tiebreaking, two-run double off the glove of diving centerfielder Mike Yastrzemski, and the San Diego Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 6-4 for a two-game sweep of Major League Baseball’s first regular-season series in Mexico City. A day after winning an 11-home run thriller 16-11, the Padres overcame a 4-0 deficit with three runs in the fifth and three in the eighth. “After last night´s game you go to bed thinking that this one was going […]

Tatis says shoulder, wrist ‘100%’ in first game since ’21

Fernando Tatis Jr. on Tuesday played his first game for the San Diego Padres in nearly 17 months.
