SAN DIEGO -- Carlos Quentin was not in the lineup for Thursday's game against Washington because he was at the hospital for the birth of his first son, Clark.

Both Quentin's wife and son are in good condition after the birth. Padres manager Bud Black joked that he didn't know the specifics about height and weight, but did have a scouting report about the newest member of the Quentin family.

"He projects as a two-sport guy, football and baseball," Black said.

Alexi Amarista remained in the lineup, playing center field after going 3-for-5 with two doubles and a home run in Wednesday's 8-4 victory over Baltimore.
