Tatis Jr. helped make baseball fun again in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (AP) The euphoria of the San Diego Padres' first playoff series victory in 22 seasons quickly gave way to the pain of being swept out of the playoffs by their biggest rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Spring training can't get here soon enough for the Padres, who finally shed their rebuilding label and rode the swagger and talent of budding superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado to their first winning season since 2010 and reinvigorated a fan base that had been beaten down by so much losing.

"We know how to win now," said right fielder Wil Myers, their longest-tenured played who had a nice bounceback season at the plate. "We're expecting to win. We've got great players in here. I know we came up short tonight, but there's a lot of optimism here in San Diego. It's going to be a great offseason for us. Ready to rock and roll and come back next year with a different mentality."
