Former Otter a winner in MLB Debut

Andrew Werner allowed two runs over six-plus innings in his major league debut and Carlos Quentin drove in three runs, leading the San Diego Padres to a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday.

The Padres swept the three-game series and have beaten the Pirates in 18 of 21 games.

Quentin had three RBIs for the second straight game, including a two-run double in the first inning and an RBI single in the fifth.

Werner, a left-hander who was called up from Triple-A Tucson earlier in the day, allowed four hits, walking four and striking out two.

Brad Brach, Luke Gregerson and rookie Tommy Layne finished the four-hitter. Layne pitched the ninth for his first major league save.
