Short hops

• Padres pitcher Clayton Richard and his wife, Ashley, welcomed their first child into the world Saturday at 10:40 p.m. Their son, Cashton Richard, weighed in at 9 pounds and measured 20 inches.

• Left fielder Carlos Quentin was out of the lineup for the third time in the last four games on Saturday as his right knee continues to give him fits. Quentin has what the team is calling irritation of the knee, the same knee he had surgery on in March, which delayed the start of his season until May 28.

"We've got to let it quiet down," said Padres manager Bud Black. "But there's no big concern from the medical end."
