How convenient. The Pads are quite intent on tanking. I don't think we can compete with them and the Mariners. They take purposely losing to a whole new level.

WASHINGTON -- Padres pitcher Jake Peavy was scratched from his start on Friday against the Washington Nationals so he could fly to San Diego early in the day to be with his wife, Katie, who was in labor with the couple's third child.

Rookie Dirk Hayhurst (0-2, 8.49 ERA) replaced Peavy on Friday for the first game of a three-game series against Washington at Nationals Park.

The Peavy's were expecting a boy. The couple already has two boys: Jacob (7) and Wyatt (4).

Peavy (9-11, 2.77 ERA) isn't expected to miss more than one start, and will likely rejoin the Padres when they begin a three-game series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Peavy is the defending National League Cy Young Award winner.
