Game Story

SAN DIEGO (Ticker) -- Khalil Greene is becoming a late-inning hero for the San Diego Padres. Greene's RBI double with two outs in the bottom of the seventh snapped a tie and gave the Padres a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Expos and a sweep of their four-game series. One day after ending an 0-for-10 slide with a run-scoring triple in the eighth inning of a 5-4 triumph, Greene came up big again for San Diego. With Ryan Klesko on second base and two out, the rookie shortstop belted a 3-2 offering from Montreal starter Tomo Ohka to right-center field for a ground-rule double and a 2-1 lead. "I feel confident at the plate and as time goes along, I'm learning more things," Greene said. "(Pinch hitter Terrence Long) was behind me, so I knew they were going to pitch to me. ... I barreled that one a little better than (the triple) last night." "He's gotten two big ones for us the last two nights," San Diego manager Bruce Bochy said. "It was nice to see him hit that gap twice." Winning pitcher David Wells (1-2) also appreciated Greene's contributions, both at the plate and in the field. "You don't win it by yourself, except for Khalil," he said. "You don't usually see guys doing that two nights in a row. He was the game MVP tonight. His defense was solid. You have a guy like that making plays behind you, it's a lot easier." Brian Giles fell a home run shy of becoming the first player in Padres' history to hit for the cycle but erased a sixth-inning deficit with an RBI triple. In his final at-bat, he was walked on nine pitches by Chad Cordero. "He made some good pitches on me and I fouled a few off before he finally walked me," said Giles, who is hitting .400 (14-for-35) over his last 10 games. "I felt like I was pulling off the ball early on, but the last 10 days or so, I've been more disciplined." Wells, who retired the last 11 batters he faced, allowed an unearned run and two hits in seven innings, striking out three without a walk. It was his first National League victory since 1995 with Cincinnati. "It's a great feeling, especially with all the friends I had out there in the stands," said Wells, a San Diego native. "I just went out there and did my job, and the guys came through for me when I needed it. Akinori Otsuka pitched a scoreless eighth before Trevor Hoffman worked around two hits in the ninth for his sixth save and third in three nights. Ohka (0-5) pitched well, yielding two runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings. "I thought I had good stuff and that it was good enough to win," Ohka said through an interpreter. "All I can do is go out and pitch my game and not worry about the other stuff." The other stuff is the total of two runs the Expos have scored for the Japanese righthander in his five starts. Montreal has scored three runs or fewer in 20 of 23 games this season. "We have no offense," Expos manager Frank Robinson said. "I don't know what it is. I've never seen anything like it. ... Every time we give up a run out there it's almost the ballgame." Val Pascucci collected his first major league RBI with a sacrifice fly for Montreal, which has lost seven of its last eight games. The four-game sweep was the Padres' first over the Expos since the teams entered the league in 1969. It also was San Diego's first four-game sweep over any opponent since June 1999.
