Padres enjoy first winning month since 2010
CINCINNATI -- The Padres finished the month of July with a 15-11 record, their first winning month since going 16-13 in August of 2010.

The Padres had a 3.57 ERA in July while averaging 4.73 runs per game. But it was more than just statistics that impressed manager Bud Black.

"It shows that we're coming together as a team in a number of areas," Black said. "The continuity of the team has mostly stayed intact. Offense, defense, starting pitching, bullpen, it has all been better overall."

Black said there was a difference in the kind of victories the Padres amassed in July.

"Early in the season, we lost games and didn't get beat," he said. "There's a difference. "Now, I think we are beating other teams. That's a sign of better play."
