Loux appreciates rare Major League win
LOS ANGELES -- Shane Loux had no trouble naming the Major League opponents he has defeated: Kansas City, Baltimore, Oakland and now San Diego.

"When you only have four, they stick out," said Loux, a veteran of 16 professional seasons spent mostly in the Minor Leagues.

Loux, 33, pitched a scoreless eighth inning Sunday and benefited from the Giants' three-run, ninth-inning rally to earn the decision in their 7-5 victory over the Padres. It was, in a sense, a nice keepsake for Loux, who has divided this season between Triple-A Fresno and the Giants when he wasn't sidelined with a neck injury.

Having made 321 of his 379 pro appearances in the Minors, few players are more appreciative of spending time in the Majors than Loux, despite his modest ranking in the bullpen pecking order.

"If you had told me at the beginning of the year that I'd be playing the Dodgers in October, I don't know if I would have believed you. But I'm happy that the organization gave me a shot -- and another one," Loux said Monday, referring to his initial signing with the Giants in December 2010 and his return this year.
