Headley sits with lower back issue
ST. LOUIS -- San Diego third baseman Chase Headley did not start Tuesday's game at St. Louis due to what manager Bud Black called "a lower back issue."

Headley had started 42 of the Padres' first 43 games. The switch-hitter is batting .245 with five homers and 20 RBIs.

Black said Headley might be available to pinch-hit.

"We want to let this calm down a little," Black said.

Headley was 1-for-4 with a double in Monday's 4-3 loss at St. Louis.
