Home runs sink Erlin, Padres in finale – Padres.com
Yasmany Tomas hit a pair of homers — the first multi-homer game of his career — and drove in three runs to help lead the D-backs past the Padres, 7-3, on Sunday afternoon at Petco Park. The D-backs took two of three games in the series.

Padres slump as Wil Myers soars – San Diego Union-Tribune
As temperatures rose this weekend at Petco Park — the finale started at a vacation brochure-perfect 85 degrees — so did Myers’ batting average. And his on-base percentage. And his walks, even if collecting one meant doubling his season total.

Mark McGwire On Kemp, Blash, How Many At-Bats It Takes To Get Comfortable & His 92 ASG Memories
Padres bench coach Mark McGwire on Matt Kemp’s fast start, what he sees in Jabari Blash, how many at-bats before it’s time to “panic: and his 1992 home run derby All Star game memories in San Diego.


Kawhi Leonard named NBA Defensive Player of the Year for second consecutive season – USA Today
Former San Diego State Aztec and current San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, who is an instrumental part of the league’s top defense, was named NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.

Laremy Tunsil a messy fit for Chargers at 3 – San Diego Union-Tribune
If the Chargers are to draft Tunsil on April 28, they’ll do so accepting that either their No. 3 selection will begin the season on the bench — hardly appealing for coaches with jobs on the line — or Dunlap, a player with $3.3 million guaranteed, will. If Dunlap sits on the bench, he’ll sit knowing that with every game he watches, he grows less likely to earn back his $1.2 million in incentives. Meanwhile, Hairston becomes difficult to carry as a fourth tackle. There goes $550,000.

Blake Griffin is back, and he’s giving the Clippers reason to believe – Yahoo! Sports
Sunday was a reminder of just how valuable Blake Griffin can be. This isn’t going to be a pretty series. The Trail Blazers are overmatched, and they know it, and the only way they can compete with the Clippers is to grind the game to a halt. Hack-a-(DeAndre) Jordan began in the first half and continued deep into the fourth quarter.

Gulls rally past Ontario 3-2 in regular season finale – SanDiegoGulls.com
The San Diego Gulls scored two goals within 29 seconds late in the third period to turn a tense and physical game around, beating the Ontario Reign 3-2 in front of a raucous crowd of 11,705 at Valley View Casino Center. Brian McGrattan’s top shelf score at 15:14 of the third electrified the crowd and sent San Diego (39-23-4-2) into the Calder Cup Playoffs on a high note.

Gloat if you must, but UNLV mess is bad for SDSU – San Diego Union-Tribune
It has been riveting theater for San Diego State fans, watching smoke billowing out of the dumpster, watching the once-proud men’s basketball program of rival UNLV collapse under its own weight, like an outdated Vegas casino imploding on The Strip as onlookers gawk.

However, the Mountain West doesn’t need another 253 RPI team with a depleted roster and dysfunctional administration to drag down the Aztecs. It has plenty of those already.
