In winning his first game as a starter this year, Clayton Richard also got a save. For much of what had been a nightmare season, he'd contributed to a taxing workload for the Padres' relievers. Sunday, the left-hander saved the bullpen. Not coincidentally, the Padres completed a sweep of another first-place team with a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Petco Park. In easily his longest outing of the year, Richard was an inning short of giving the Padres' their second complete game in three days. He scattered seven hits, yielding only one run and earning his first win as a starter since last September.
