No record was safe from Chipper Jones and the Atlanta Braves, who made spacious Petco Park play like a bandbox. Jones hit a two-run homer yesterday to give him an extra-base hit in 14 straight games, tying a 79-year-old big-league record, and the visiting Braves roughed up Jake Peavy during a wild 10-5 win that gave them a three-game sweep of NL West-leading San Diego. On a day when both managers, a bench coach and a player were ejected for arguing balls and strikes, the Braves won their season-high fifth straight game, and for the ninth time in 11 games.

SAN DIEGO - With a few days left in triple-A Lehigh Valley's season, Tony Gwynn Jr. chucked his size-10 red sneakers. The most difficult season of his life would soon end, and he prepared for his trip home to Southern California. "I didn't want to pay the extra money for the overweight bags," Gwynn said. He laughed Tuesday, as he wore teammate Freddy Galvis' red shoes. Gwynn arrived at 19 Tony Gwynn Drive to find his name atop the Phillies lineup. He would play in the shadow of his father's bronze statue beyond the center-field wall.

Like your mom used to say, it's all in fun until somebody gets hurt. Los Angeles and San Diego had an old-fashioned donnybrook Thursday night after Zack Greinke hit Carlos Quentin in the sixth inning of the Dodgers' 3-2 win over the Padres. After being tackled by San Diego's Carlos Quentin - who was peeved that a pitch had hit him on the arm - Greinke, Los Angeles' $147 million righthander, will need surgery to put a rod in his broken left clavicle, and be out eight weeks. Quentin was suspended eight games Friday.

IN A DIFFERENT time, when I was more naïve about the dramatic effects of performance-enhancing drugs, I guess I would have been impressed by the spectacular display by Miami Marlins rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton during Monday's Home Run Derby. I might have even believed the 61 home runs Stanton smashed out of Petco Park were "spectacular. " Even though the purpose of the contest is to intentionally deliver pitches that batters can blast out of ballpark, the fact Stanton destroyed the previous single-night mark of 41 set by then-Phillie Bobby Abreu in 2005 was amazing in terms of record-breaking margins for any event.

SAN DIEGO - Odubel Herrera wasted little time extending his season-high, 12-game hitting streak. He took the second pitch he saw from San Diego starter Andrew Cashner yesterday and ripped it into rightfield for a single in the opening inning of the Phillies' 5-3 win. In his third at-bat, Herrera took Cashner a little deeper - his sixth home run of the season landed deep into the second section of seats beyond the rightfield fence at Petco Park....

SAN DIEGO - With Jerome Williams fashioning his best start of the season and an opportunity to break the game open, manager Pete Mackanin decided to stick with the team's longtime cleanup hitter, Ryan Howard, with two on, two out and his team up two runs in the seventh inning of yesterday's game against the Padres at Petco Park. Maikel Franco had just been walked intentionally and Howard was matched up against San Diego lefty specialist Marc Rzepczynski. Howard, who is hitting .192 with 142 strikeouts in 328 at-bats against lefthanders since the beginning of 2013, struck out to end the rally.

SAN DIEGO - The last Phillies player to arrive Monday at Petco Park, Jonathan Papelbon, marched straight into the manager's office. For 18 minutes, the crotch-grabbing closer explained his actions. "There was nothing for me to judge," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "It's not for me to judge. I just listened to hear what he had to say. " Less than two hours after that meeting, Major League Baseball deemed Papelbon's lewd gesture worthy of a seven-game suspension and an undisclosed fine.

SAN DIEGO - An ear infection spread pain through Charlie Manuel's sinuses, a pain that throbbed from a five-hour flight across the country. The 69-year-old manager clutched a bottle of antibiotics Monday after his Phillies lost, 4-3. He was exasperated. "There are some options there," Manuel said. "Evidently, I didn't choose the right one. " He rubbed his left hand over his face. "Tough," he said. He eyed two unused daytime cold medicine pills. "We're supposed to win the game," he said.
