Torrealba scratched before Tuesday's game

Torrealba scratched before Tuesday's game

|
PHOENIX -- Padres catcher Yorvit Torrealba was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup with a stiff back. He was replaced by Nick Hundley, who was slated to bat eighth against D-backs starter Ian Kennedy.

Torrealba, who went 2-for-4 in Monday's 7-2 defeat, tweaked his back while reaching for a missed-location Edward Mujica pitch in the ninth inning.

San Diego skipper Bud Black was not overly concerned; he said it was not a recurring issue for Torrealba, who has started behind the plate 67 times this season.
