BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State running back Jeremy McNichols admitted that last season he didnt spend as much time in the film room or with his offensive line. Hes changed that this year and its paying big dividends.McNichols rushed for 206 yards and a career-high four touchdowns to power No. 20 Boise State past UNLV 42-25 on Friday night.Boise State (10-1, 6-1; ?No. 22 AP) kept its Mountain West title hopes alive and reached 10 victories for the second time in three seasons under head coach Bryan Harsin. After passing Western Michigan in the College Football Playoff rankings this week, the Broncos also remained in contention for a Cotton Bowl berth.McNichols set a school record for the most 200-yard rushing games in a single season with his third.You have to know your offensive line well, McNichols said. And last year I didnt watch as much film with them or spend as much time around them. But I changed that this year.Now even at our walk throughs, Ill go over and see what theyre talking about. Having a good relationship with your offensive line is huge. When they mean something and you show them they mean something, they feel like they scored a touchdown with you. They run down the field to try and catch me. Its fun.The Rebels (4-7, 3-4), who lost for fifth time in five tries at Boise State, didnt have much fun trying to stop McNichols, who entered the game as the nations fifth-leading rusher.(McNichols) did a good job of bouncing to the outside and breaking contain, UNLV coach Tony Sanchez said. We had him dead to rights a few times, but just werent able to tackle in space. And that killed us.UNLVs offense, which was missing leading receiver Devonte Boyd due to a broken hand suffered last week, didnt have any better luck either, managing only 302 yards of total offense, their second-lowest output of the season.Harsin said he planned on emphasizing the ground game against UNLV, but things went better than expected.We came in here with the game plan to run the ball, Harsin said, But the way Jeremy was just running it, when hes hot like that, you want to keep getting it to him.McNichols, a junior who could follow in the footsteps of former teammate and Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi and enter the draft after the season, said his last regular season game at home seemed different.I said before the game that something felt special about tonight, McNichols said. When you get in that groove, you feel like every touch could go the distance. And it felt like that tonight.After UNLV converted aa fumble into a field goal on Boise States opening possession, the Broncos went on a 19-play, 74-yard drive -- their longest of the season -- and took a 7-3 lead on quarterback Brett Rypiens 1-yard run. Anthony Duclair Coyotes Jersey. The Broncos followed that drive up with their shortest after a 73-yard punt return by Cedrick Wilson set up Boise States offense at the UNLV 6. On the only play of the drive the Broncos ran, McNichols bounced outside and won a footrace to the corner of the end zone for the touchdown, giving Boise State a 14-3 first quarter lead.That early lead helped set the tone for Boise State as UNLV never really threatened to make the game competitive.Rypien finished with 109 yards on 10-of-20 passing. Career receiving leader Thomas Sperbeck had five catches for 47 yards in his final regular-season home game.UNLVs Kurt Palandech passed for 113 yards, completing 10 of 20 passes. He also led the team in rushing with 64 yards.TAKEAWAYSUNLV: The Rebels have already topped last seasons win total of three games, but they will look to finish strong with a win in their finale next Saturday. With a victory, the Rebels could lock up second place in the West division and set their eyes on getting bowl eligible next year.Boise State: The Broncos defense delivered one of their most dominant performances of the season as the entire team seems to peaking at the right time. In the three games since its last-minute loss on the road at Wyoming, Boise State has committed only one turnover and averaged more than 48 points a game, while limiting opponents to just over 21.POLL IMPLICATIONSBoise State isnt likely to impress the voters much with the victory, though the easy win shouldnt cost them any votes either. Dont expect the Broncos to move up in the poll much as most of the teams in front to them are all favored to win handily Saturday.UP NEXTUNLV: The Rebels host in-state rival Nevada in the regular-season finale for both teams.Boise State: The Broncos will travel to Air Force for their final regular-season tilt in a must-win game to keep their division title hopes alive.MORE McNICHOLSMcNichols entered the game leading the nation in scoring with 132 points. His four touchdowns put him at 156 points, 36 more than the next closest player. He also took the leading in rushing touchdowns with 22 for the season. However, hes still 42 points shy of the school single season record of 192. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
The biggest name in next summers free-agent class has taken himself off the market. David Savard Blue Jackets Jersey .Pending unrestricted free agent Brent Burns and the San Jose Sharks agreed to an eight-year extension Tuesday, the team announced.?Financial terms werent revealed, but the deal is worth $64 million total, according to a source. The contract is front-loaded, including signing bonuses. The deal does not include a full no-move clause but does have limited no-trade provisions.Brent is one the most dynamic players in the National Hockey League and were very excited to get this deal done, Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. He has worked extremely hard to be an elite defenseman and at six-foot-five, 230-pounds, his abilities on this ice are unique and rare.The 31-year-old led all NHL blueliners with 27 goals last season and was one of three finalists for the Norris Trophy, awarded to the NHLs top defenseman.He leads the Sharks this season with seven goals and has nine assists in 19 games.? Anton Forsberg Blue Jackets Jersey . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. David Savard Jersey . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots went back to practice without Rob Gronkowski on Friday as the 2015 All-Pro tight end prepared for season-ending back surgery.It didnt look much different than a lot of their workouts this season.Weve had some experience I think this year being without him, quarterback Tom Brady said a day after the team announced that Gronkowski is expected to miss the rest of the season recovering from a herniated disk in his back. Its not something that you want to deal with. But at some point in the year, based on how long the season is, youre always going to deal with something.One of the dominant tight ends in NFL history, Gronkowskis biggest struggle is often to stay on the field. He has had ankle and knee surgery once, three operations on his forearm, and two previous back operations. He was the 2014 Comeback Player of the Year, a year after he played in just seven games because of injuries to his back, forearm and knee.The 2010 second-round draft pick has already missed three weeks this season and had a limited role in three others -- the fifth year in a row that he hasnt been able to play in every game.Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Friday he is disappointed for Gronkowski, praising his work and his contributions to the team. Brady made it clear that he still has plenty of targets for this weekends game against the Los Angeles Rams, even without the three-time All-Pro.Weve still got a lot of good players, Brady said. Well keep battling without him. Weve got a llot of tough guys in the locker room still, and well see what we can make of this season. Custom Columbus Blue Jackets Jersey. We were off to a good start and weve got to keep it going.After spending the first half of the season on the injury report with a hamstring problem, Gronkowski was hurt again on Nov. 13. He took a shot in the chest from Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas that Gronkowski said was probably one of the hardest Ive got hit in my career. He missed the Nov. 20 game against San Francisco; when he returned last week against the New York Jets, he left late in the first quarter with a back injury.He did not practice this week.On Thursday, the team and Gronkowskis family issued a joint statement saying the hit in the Seattle game resulted in a pulmonary contusion to his lung, but doctors cleared him to return. Against the Jets, though, Rob began to experience significant back and leg pain.It has been determined that it is in Robs best long-term interest to undergo surgery to address his lower back injury, the statement said. We do not expect that he will be able to play for the remainder of the 2016 season, but will await the results of (Fridays) surgery before making a final determination.One Gronkowski returned to the Patriots when the team re-signed fullback Glenn, Robs brother, to the practice squad.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Cliff Pennington Angels Jersey . -- The Detroit Lions have signed ex-Chicago Bears defensive end Israel Idonije to a one-year contract and have released defensive end Freddie Bishop. The team said Wednesday it isnt releasing terms of its contract with Idonije, a free agent who grew up in Brandon, Man. Idonije played at the University of Manitoba, and has spent nine seasons with the Bears. He started 11 games last season and finished second on the team in sacks (7.5) behind Julius Peppers (11.5). Idonije made 48 tackles (29 solo), had 7.5 sacks (68 yards) and one forced fumble last season. Andrelton Simmons Angels Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. Nolan Ryan Jersey . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks. Last weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 my #TeamLynch got the best of #TeamJC by a score of 9-6. Let us know which side youre on for UFC 167 use the hashtag #TeamLynch or #TeamJC on Twitter. As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. The New York Knicks will attempt to achieve something they accomplished only six times last season when they host the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.The Knicks (6-7) will seek to get to .500, a mark they werent able to reach after January 20 last season when they finished 32-50.New York has won three of its last four games and is coming off an impressive 104-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday in which forward Carmelo Anthony poured in a season-high 31 points. With the many additions, including a new backcourt of Derrick Rose and Courtney Lee and center Joakim Noah, Anthony remains the centerpiece of the team.The 32-year-old Anthony leads the Knicks in scoring (22.9 points per game), minutes played (33.1) and field goals made (8.5) and attempted (17.8). He added seven rebounds, three assists and two steals to his resume on Sunday.The attention Anthony continues to draw each game has helped free up his frontcourt mate Kristaps Porzingis, who is averaging 20 points and seven rebounds.Without Melo (Anthony), Porzingis said, it would be so much more difficult (for me) to get 30 points, or whatever. People dont realize that. He draws a lot of attention. Hes the main focus for the other team.That opens stuff for me. Without him it would be much more difficult. Im happy to have aggressive guys like him and (Derrick) Rose so I can get those open looks.Portland (8-7) ended a three-game losing streak with a 129-109 wiin over the Nets in Brooklyn on Sunday. Andrew Heaney Angels Jersey. C.J. McCollum led the attack with 33 points, five assists and five rebounds.Swingman Evan Turner came off the bench to deliver his best performance since signing with Portland as a free agent from Boston. He scored 19 points and made eight of his 12 shots from the floor.I think you need to get in there a little bit, said Turner on finding his spots. One of the biggest things is the consistency of it and talking about it. I think in the past four or five games, I have gotten to my spots. Things just havent fallen, but once again, as a team and myself, were just trying to build consistency.We need everybody clicking in order to win. Right now, were starting to find more chemistry outside our main contributors, whether it be myself and Meyers (Leonard) trying to work the pick and roll -- I think thats the biggest thing.Portland used a 27-9 run in the third quarter to pull away from the Nets.We pretty much took over the game in that quarter on the defensive end and that kind of sparked everything and I think thats what I was the most proud of, said Portland guard Damian Lillard.We had more of a presence on the ball. The first half I think we had trouble controlling the ball and from top to bottom guys were taking it from the perimeter and getting it to the rim. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans has been selected as the host city for the 2022 mens college basketball Final Four, the NCAA announced on Thursday.The decision means New Orleans is set to host college basketballs mens semifinals and championship game for the sixth time -- each time in the Superdome.New Orleans has an incredibly rich history of hosting the Final Four, and for a variety of reasons it was determined that 2022 was the perfect year to bring the event back to the Crescent City, said Dan Gavitt, vice president for mens basketball championships. New Orleans is a festive place that embraces this event and makes it special for participating student-athletes and fans. With a little luck, well get some of the same Final Four magic weve been treated to in the past.Gavitt said the NCAA also was eager to grant the 2022 event to New Orleans because it comes on the 40th anniversary of the 1982 Final Four, which also was held in New Orleans and was highlighted by Michael Jordans game-winning jump shot that lifted North Carolina to the national title over a Georgetown squad let by Patrick Ewing.New Orleans last hosted the Final Four in 2012, when Kentucky, led by current New Orleans Pelicans AAll-Star forward Anthony Davis, defeated Kansas for the national championship. Steven Stamkos Lightning Jersey. The NCAA stated that its mens basketball committee decided to forego the traditional site selection process for the 2022 Final Four and move decisively to secure the event in New Orleans, which narrowly missed being picked during the last bid cycle that concluded with Phoenix, San Antonio, Minneapolis, Atlanta and Indianapolis awarded the 2017 through 2021 Final Fours.A Final Four site selection process slated to begin next year remains on schedule, but now will focus on the 2023, 2024 and 2025 locations, which are expected to be announced by the summer of 2018, the NCAA said.With the Final Four competing for many of the same venues that host major events such as the Super Bowl and College Football Playoff, we did not want to wait until 2018 to make the announcement for the 2022 Final Four, Gavitt said. That, combined with the milestone anniversaries well celebrate at that time, made the decision to move forward with New Orleans hosting in 2022 the sensible thing to do. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Justin Rose believes he is in great shape for this weeks first major championship of the season, and admits he arrives in Georgia under the radar. J. D. Martinez Jersey . The 35-year-old Englishman tied-for-second at Augusta last year and went on to post top-10 finishes in three of the four majors during 2015.This will be his 11th Masters appearance and Rose says he feels ready to claim a second major title following on from his US Open success three years ago.I think that Ive sort of been steady. I havent really had any fireworks yet this year, said Rose.I feel like all of my backroom work has been fantastic and my preparation has been coming along nicely. Im under the radar but certainly feeling good with my game. Masters week on Sky All four days and much more live on Sky Sports His best finish so far this year is a tie-for-sixth at Pebble Beach and, in his 19 starts since last July, the consistent Rose has finished outside the top 25 just three times, while enjoying 10 top-10 finishes.Looking ahead to this week, he added: To back up a US Open win with a Masters would be just incredible. Obviously, The Open Championship is my home event, and thats going to be one thats always on my hit list.But to win here, its a venue that we come back year on year, you begin to develop that relationship with the course, the venue, the feel, And its somewhere I feel very, very comfortable. Ive had a lot of good rounds here. Last year, I was able to put four together in a row.I dont think you ever feel like youve necessarily mastered it because invariably you learn something new every year, which is what I love about it.As for 2015, he finished four-strokes behind Jordan Spieth who completed 72 holes in 18-under-par. The Englishman put in an impressive display at the Masters in 2015 Rose added: At the 16th green, I had a putt to get to 16‑under par, and you know, that level of performance obviously would have won many major championships.So I take a lot of confidence from that. That level of performance is good enough to win. If you get beaten by a better guy on the week, you tip your cap.But I know that what I was able to do last year tells me Ive got what it takes to win the tournament going forward.There was a momentum shift around 8 and 9 last year. It was a routine up‑and‑down on No 8 that I didnt make and I hit a great shot into No 9 that just skipped up onto the middle tier and I three‑putted coming back down the ridge.  Rose is hoping to build on his impressive form I felt like that was a two or three shot swing there. Had it gone the other way, everything changes going into the back nine. But Jordan was able to stay three or four ahead, which is obviously huge. He did a great job of obviously keeping that distance.And regarding 2016, he told Sky Sports News HQ: Its a very strong field. Theres a bunch of six or seven guys at 12/1 or better. Im not sure weve seen that in recent years.Wind is forecast Thursday, Friday. Thats going to be tough, especially at Augusta where it swirls, so Amen Corner may be tricky and thats where experience comes in. Get a Sky Sports Week Pass Dont miss the Masters.

CHICAGO -- Dan Haren showed speed isnt always the most important factor to having success on the mound. Despite throwing every pitch under 90 miles per hour, Haren allowed just five hits and one run in six strong innings to lead the Washington Nationals to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night. "In the beginning of the year, I was throwing harder and my stuff was nasty," Haren said, "but I was getting burned by the homers and the one mistake I would make would kill me." Since being activated from the disabled list on July 8, Haren (8-11) is 4-2 with a 2.20 earned run average in eight starts. "Its been unbelievable," Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. "Hes been really pitching good. Hes shown hes a quality pitcher and hes bounced back and pitched great." Asked for his take on the secret to Harens success against the Cubs while topping out at 89 mph, Johnson said: "He locates, changes speeds, hits his spots. Velocity is way overrated." Ryan Zimmerman had two hits and drove in a run, and Bryce Harper also had two hits and scored a crucial ninth-inning run for Washington. Zimmerman had two doubles and could have had two more hits as he lined out to third base in the third inning to start a double play and hit a hard shot at the centre fielder in the seventh. Harper doubled leading off the ninth and scored on Ian Desmonds RBI single to right field. Denard Span, a late-inning defensive replacement, added a run-scoring single for the Nationals final run. Rafael Soriano gave up a leadoff homer to Donnie Murphy in the bottom of the ninth before getting the last three outs for his 32nd save in 38 chances. Cubs starter Chris Rusin (2-3) gave up two runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings, managing to work out of jam after jam with minimal damage. "Just made a couple mistakes that cost me, but I was able to get out of jams, so I helped myself out there," he said. Last September, Rusin was roughed up for five runs on eight hits in one inning against the Nationals. "It was better than last year against these guys," Rusin said. "We didnt get the win. Thats the bad part about it. Just got to learn from a couple mistakes." The Cubs ooffence -- which scored just 12 runs in eight home games before an 11-run outburst on Monday -- went back into its Wrigley Field struggles. Jose Iglesias Tigers Jersey. "It is what it is right now," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "We score on home runs. Today, both solo home runs." For Haren, the last week has been a whirlwind. He pitched six innings in a start against San Francisco last Thursday, and then made a relief appearance on Saturday, pitching one inning to earn the save in the Nats 15-inning win over Atlanta. There was some concern about how Haren would bounce back. "I felt fine physically, but warming up, it was just a little tougher to get loose," he said. "The first inning or two was a battle, but as the game progressed my stuff got better. "I didnt have my best stuff, especially in the beginning like I said. My cutter was real good. I worked that in on lefties a lot. I didnt throw quite as many splits and my fastball got better as the game went along." The Nationals took a 2-1 lead in the sixth inning as Zimmerman opened with a double, moved to third on Jayson Werths single and scored one out later on Tyler Moores run-scoring infield single. Washington went ahead in the top of the first. Ian Desmond reached on a fielders chose when the Cubs failed to turn a seemingly routine double play, and then scored on Zimmermans double to left field. The Cubs tied it in the bottom of the fourth on Brian Bogusevics first homer of the season, a two-out shot to right field that landed in the first row of the bleachers. NOTES: After the game, the Nationals optioned LHP Ian Krol to Class AAA Syracuse to make room for RHP Ross Ohlendorf. "Hes still learning up here," Johnson said of Krol, "but hes got a heck of a future." ... Cubs SS Starlin Castro batted eighth for the first time this season. He went 0 for 4 to extend his slump to 1 for 27. ... After being sent to the minors earlier in the season, Nationals reliever Drew Storen is back and throwing the ball more effectively, coming off three scoreless appearances in Atlanta during the weekend. ... The four-game series continues Wednesday night with the Ohlendorf (2-0) facing the Cubs Jake Arrieta (1-0). Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

FORT WORTH, Texas -- After the rain, Carl Edwards will be racing for a championship in NASCARs season finale. Cooper Kupp Jersey .Jimmie Johnson was already locked into one of the title-contending spots at Homestead.So that leaves two spots for the final four in the deciding Sprint Cup race Nov. 20. And there are six drivers -- half of them Edwards teammates with Joe Gibbs Racing -with one more chance to claim them next Sunday at Phoenix.Edwards got the victory he so desperately needed to advance when he won a rain-shortened race at Texas. It was cut by 41 laps because of rain late Sunday night after the start was delayed nearly six hours.I feel like this is what we needed to do. We were able to do that. Theres a lot of pride in that, Edwards said. To be able to run like we did tonight, for the pit crew to perform the way they did, its really great. I think its a testament to the team that Coach Gibbs put together.Gibbs drivers Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin are still in contention for the final spots. They go to Phoenix third through fifth in the points standings, though separated by only two points.Next week will be super competitive, Gibbs said. For us and our guys, I know all three of them want this. They really want it bad.Team Penske driver Joey Logano, who led a race-high 178 laps at Texas before finishing second, is listed second in the points with a tiebreaker over Kyle Bush. Kenseth is only one point back, with Hamlin one behind him.Kevin Harvick is sixth in points, 18 back, but goes to Phoenix where he won his track-record eighth race in March and has won six of the last eight.We will just go there and do what we always do and race as hard as we can, Harvick said.If one of the remaining six contenders doesnt win at Phoenix, the final two spots will be determined by points.Harvick and Kurt Busch, his Stewart-Haas teammate who is 34 points back in eighth, are both likely in the position of needing a victory at Phoenix for a title chance.That is pretty much the situation Edwards faced when he got to Texas eighth in points among the drivers still eligible for the championship, a week after a cut tire and crash led to a 36th-place finish at Martinsville.Winning a rain-shortened race provided a bit of vindication for Edwards.Last years race at Phoenix was delayed nearly seven hours as a series of storms passed through the area, and then once it started at night, it was called after 218 laps. Edwards finished fifth, leaving him five points out of the final spot for the Chase finale.This rain was a lot more welcome than that rain, Edwards said. That was frustrating.Edwards took the lead on lap 258 after beating Martin Truex Jr. off pit road, and led the rest of the way.Light rain was already falling and plenty more was on the radar around the track, when the caution came out with 45 laps remaining of the originally scheduled 334-lap race.All cars were brought to pit road four laps later, and it was only a few more minutes before NASCAR declared the race over and official after 293 laps. It could have taken two hours or more to dry to track, even though it ended up being only a brief shower.Some other things from Texas:DRIVE FOR FIVE SHORT: Johnson had won the previous four fall races at Texas, but finished 11th after starting 19th.LONG GAP: Edwards had last won at Texas in 2008, when he swept both Cup races at the track. Those were among his nine wins overall that season when he finished second in points. Three years later, Edwards was the season runner-up again even though he matched Tony Stewart for the most points. Stewart won the championship on a tiebreaker since he had five wins to Edwards one.UP NEXT: An elimination race Sunday at Phoenix. Assuming Harvick wins again, the playoff picture is realistically five drivers racing for the final slot in the finale. Josh Reynolds Womens Jersey . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. Gerald Everett Jersey . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference.DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies came out swinging and put San Diego in an early deficit. Unlike Monday, the Padres answered the challenge. Nick Hundley homered and drove in two runs, Will Venable had three hits, and San Diego rallied to beat the Rockies 7-5 on Tuesday night. Jedd Gyorko also went deep for the second straight night for the Padres, who rebounded from a 14-2 loss to the Rockies on Monday. "You cant completely wash it out," Gyorko said. "We showed resiliency to fight back the way we did." San Diego beat the Rockies for just the fourth time in 15 games this season. Charlie Culberson had two hits and two RBIs, and Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu also had two hits each for Colorado, which had its four-game winning streak snapped. The Padres got the win despite an uncharacteristic start from left-hander Eric Stults, who was 3-0 with a 3.35 ERA in six career starts against the Rockies. He had been dominant against them this season, going 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA, but that changed in a hurry. The first four batters reached for Colorado in the first inning, with Wilin Rosario delivering a two-run, bases-loaded single to centre to make it 2-1. One out later, Todd Helton and Culberson had RBI singles to stretch the lead to 4-1. "When teams are aggressive and you leave the ball generally good things arent going to happen for you," Stults said. "They put some good swings on them, I put myself in a hole early on." The four earned runs in one inning were double what Stults had previously allowed in 16 innings against Colorado this season. San Diego couldnt do much against Jhoulys Chacin on Monday, but the Padres jumped on Jeff Manship (0-2) in the second inning. Hundley hit a two-run homer, Stults singled and scored on Venables triple, and Venable came home on Alexi Amaristas single to give San Diego a 5-4 lead. Gyorko made it 6-4 in the third with his 12th home run. "All I can take out of this outing that was positive was just the fact that I was able to get to the fifth and kind of save the bullpen," Manship said. "But all in all, pretty bad performance." The Rockies loaded the bases with no outs in the third, but came away empty when CCharlie Blackmon flied out to shallow centre and Manship grounded into a double play. Josh Reynolds Jersey. "Big double play in the third with the bases loaded," Stults said. "Just happy for our team, especially after last night where we didnt play that well. To come from behind to win this game was big for us." The Padres played sloppy on a rain-soaked Monday night. They committed a season-high four errors, starter Edison Volquez was hit hard and the bullpen gave up six runs in the eighth. It was a much different scene Tuesday. San Diego played flawless defence and four relievers combined to give up one hit -- a broken-bat triple by pinch-hitter Corey Dickerson -- in 4 1-3 innings. "How about that? Bat shattered and went to the wall," manager Bud Black said. Colorado got within a run in the fifth when Arenado tripled and scored on a sacrifice fly, but the Padres made it 7-5 on Ronny Cedenos RBI single in the sixth. Stults left after Blackmon singled with two outs in the fifth and missed his chance for the victory. Tim Stauffer (2-1) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings for the win. "After the first inning started going to the fastball more, which was great," Black said of Stults. "Its a bummer he couldnt get Blackmon out to get through five." Huston Street got the final four outs for his 23rd save. "The strength of the Padres team for so many years has been the bullpen," Street said. "Theres a reason I dont have to pitch many four-out saves." Notes: Venable extended his hitting streak to 10 games. It ties the longest streak of his career, which he did in September 2010. ... Colorado manager Walt Weiss said Rosario tweaked his right hamstring running the bases in the first but was able to stay in the game. ... Rockies OF Michael Cuddyer rejoined the team after missing two games due to an illness. He wasnt in the starting lineup but pinch-hit in the fifth inning. ... Rockies RHP Tyler Chatwood (elbow inflammation) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session when the team is in Baltimore this weekend. ... San Diego will send RHP Andrew Cashner (8-6) against LHP Jorge De La Rosa (11-6) in Wednesdays finale of the three-game series. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
