Hundley scratched; Quentin, Hudson still out
PEORIA, Ariz. -- For the second straight day, Nick Hundley was out of the Padres' lineup, a late scratch Friday with what both he and manager Bud Black termed a sore right side.

The San Diego catcher said it was precautionary, and Black affirmed the notion.

"Sore side for Nick, a couple days off," the skipper said. "He should be OK."

Last season, Hundley was placed on the disabled list with a strained right oblique, and he missed more than a month. Black wasn't about to piece the two together.

"Let's go old school and [call it] side," Black said. "I'm not a doctor."

Right fielder Carlos Quentin and second baseman Orlando Hudson were also out for a second straight day with minor injuries. Quentin is battling a sore right knee and Hudson has a slight groin strain.
