Return of Shawn Estes

Shawn Estes is back
Thanks in part to Khalil Greene's three-run bomb, a wild pitch by Chicago Cubs' righty Jason Marquis, and a double by Jody Gerut, San Diego Padres lefty Shawn Estes is officially a 100-game winner.

He started all of one game in 2006 before sitting out last season to recover from Tommy John surgery, earning his first win since 2005 in the 4-3 victory Tuesday. He's been gone so long, we didn't even have a tag for him.

The 35-year-old Estes, who is now 1-0 with a 2.57 ERA, pitched 5.1 innings before handing the ball to the Pads' bullpen, who shut it down with 3.2 hitless innings of relief.

Way to go, buddy!
