whats looking more and more like a breakout season Antworten

PHOENIX -- Add a dramatic ninth-inning moment to whats looking more and more like a breakout season for A.J. Pollock. The young centre fielder, in his second full big league season, hit a two-out, two-run homer on the first pitch he saw in the ninth to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 7-5 victory over the San Diego Padres on Monday night. "We were standing there and we were saying Lets walk them off, lets walk them off," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said, "and he crushed the ball." It was the first game-ending homer of Pollocks career. "A really cool feeling," Pollock said. "Thats what you do. You come in here every day and put a lot of swings in the cages and you work hard and its really cool when you actually get up there when the team needs you in late innings and be able to win a game." Pollock, hitless in his first 13 at-bats this season, went 3 for 5 to bring his season average to .296. In his last 26 games, Pollock is batting .341 (31 for 91) with five doubles, four homers and 11 RBIs. "Hes just super-talented," teammate Cody Ross said. "Hes got all the tools to be a great player and you can see that hes getting comfortable." With their fifth loss in seven games, the Padres are just 2 1/2 games ahead of last-place Arizona in the NL West. Cliff Pennington was hit by a pitch and pinch-hitter Eric Chavez hit into a fielders choice ahead of Pollocks soaring homer to centre off Kevin Quackenbush (0-1). Pollock said the pitch "was probably a little out of the zone, but I just wanted to be aggressive." Yonder Alonso homered and Everth Cabrera launched a three-run shot off Arizona starter Brandon McCarthy in the fifth inning to give San Diego a 4-2 lead. Martin Prado doubled in a run and singled for the Diamondbacks, just back from a 2-4 road trip and opening a seven-game home stand. Brad Ziegler (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings to get the win. "Great game, no doubt about that," Padres manager Bud Black said. "High intensity on both ends. We got back in the game after two nothing with a big inning. They bounced back, we bounced back with a home run. ... They got the last at-bat and put a good swing on a high fastball. " The Diamondbacks went up 2-0 in the second when Prado singled softly up the middle and Ross reached on a bloop hit to short right. With two outs, Pennington singled off third baseman Chase Headleys glove to bring in one run, and another scored when centre fielder Alexi Amarista didnt pick up the ball cleanly. McCarthy blanked the Padres through four, but just after the Chase Field roof opened Alonso hit the first pitch of the fifth inning into the swimming pool area in right. After two outs, Amarista and Tyson Ross singled, and Cabrera homered just inside the right field foul pole. Ross, San Diegos starter, couldnt hold the lead, facing five batters without an out in Arizonas three-run sixth. Pollock singled, then Gerardo Parra reached on a bunt. Paul Goldschmidt singled in a run, Miguel Montero singled home another and Prado barely missed a home run with a double into the cranny next to the Arizona bullpen, putting the Diamondbacks ahead 5-4 and ending Ross night. The lead didnt last long. McCarthy retired the first two in the seventh but was yanked after pinch-hitter Tommy Medica doubled. Lefty Joe Thatcher came on and allowed an RBI double to Cabrera and it was 5-5. Each manager challenged a call and both were rejected. Black challenged a call in the fourth when Seth Smith tried to stretch a double to a triple and was called out on an extremely close play. Gibson challenged a safe call on an attempted pickoff of Headley in the eighth. With two outs in the eighth Jedd Gyorko singled and was easily thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a double. NOTES: The Diamondbacks said day-of-game ticket sales totalled 5,563, the largest at Chase since August 2008. ... In the second game of the series Tuesday, San Diego sends Eric Stults (2-5, 4.97 ERA) to the mound, while Arizona goes with Wade Miley (3-5, 4.85). ... McCarthy leads the Diamondbacks in homers allowed (11). ... The Padres opened a six-game road trip with their first game at Arizona. DJ Moore Jersey .

After a midweek loss at Real Salt Lake, the last-place Impact will be on just two days rest when they welcome the Portland Timbers to Saputo Stadium on Sunday, Montreals third game in eight days. Listen to the Impact vs. Timbers live on TSN Radio 690 Montreal today at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Impact are coming off a fourth consecutive defeat -- their longest losing streak in a single Major League Soccer season -- after conceding two second-half goals to RSL forward Olmes Garcia en route to a 3-1 loss. Last Saturday, the Impact squandered an early lead, giving up two second-half strikes from distance in a 2-1 defeat against the Columbus Crew. "Obviously, weve got to assess how our guys are feeling" said Impact manager Frank Klopas after Thursdays loss in Utah. "We had to play on the west coast, and then we have to play Sunday at home against a team thats just waiting and resting. Its about getting guys in the right moment. Right now the mentality is going to be to do whatever we have to do to get a result." The Impact (3-11-5) played with just 10 men for the final half hour on Thursday after midfielder Issey Nakajima-Farran was shown a straight red card in the 65th minute for a studs-up challenge deemed too dangerous by referee Drew Fischer. Nakajima-Farran will miss the game versus Portland as a result of the suspension. The Timbers have won three of their last five MLS road games. Sitting seventh in the Western Conference and just three points out of a playoff spot, Portland (5-6-9) will be looking to build on last weeks 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids, which ended the Timbers four-game winless run. "That really felt like a good step in the right direction," Timbers midfielder and Canadian international Will Johnson told the teams website on Friday. "Its just a good opportunity for us to continue momentum. I like our road form right now. I like how we feel. Weve gone to really tough stadia and gotten good results." Montreal and Portland have faced off just twice since the Impact joined MLS in 2012. The Timbers lost on both occasions -- 2-0 on the road at Olympic Stadium in 2012, and 2-1 at Providence Park in 2013. After Sunday, the teams will not meet again this season. "Were excited for the challenge," said defender Michael Harrington from Portland on Friday. "If we can rattle off two wins in a row, it will be great for the team morale. It will be a test. They have some good players, some tricky players up top that well have to deal with in the back." Joohnson added that the Timbers will have to respect Montreal, despite its record.dddddddddddd "We have to be careful," added Johnson, whose team has 24 points from 20 games this season. "Weve had a few good wins this year and we felt that we could really get on a run, and we havent taken advantage of that. The guys know that its time. There are no more second chances. The table is getting tight. Every game from here on in is very important, and every point is valuable." Montreal, which has been at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings since April. 5., has yet to beat a Western Conference opponent this season (0-5-1). The Impact have scored an MLS-low 19 goals this year, and have not found the back of the net more than once in a game since June 29. The team is tied for the fewest wins this season, and their minus-15 goal differential is second worst in MLS behind only the Houston Dynamo. The Timbers, meanwhile, are tied for third in the league with 32 goals, and have scored 11 times on the road. Argentinian forward Maximiliano Urruti, who leads the Timbers with eight goals this season, will be looking to score in back-to-back contests for just the second time this year. Portland is also known for getting off to a fast start, having scored a league-high six goals in the opening 15 minutes of games. "Were playing another good team that has a lot of quality in the final third," said Klopas, who has yet to beat the Timbers in three opportunities as a head coach (0-2-1). "They are a good possession team. But right now, its about doing whatever its going to take to get a result, and that kind of mentality." After starting the game against Real Salt Lake on the bench, striker Jack McInerney could be back in the starting lineup on Sunday. McInerney has not scored in his last four games. Goalkeeper Troy Perkins, who played 51 games with the Timbers between 2011 and 2012, could also be back in the starting 11 after backup keeper Evan Bush conceded a total five goals in consecutive losses. Perkins was acquired by the Impact in 2012 in exchange for Donovan Ricketts. Notes: Impact captain Patrice Bernier will make his 150th career appearance for the club on Sunday. à Defender Eric Miller (hamstring) and midfielder Gorka Larrea (hamstring) are both questionable. à Of defender Heath Pearces two career goals, one was a game-winner against the Timbers in 2012. à Montreal has yet to lose at home when scoring first (3-0-2). à Klopas men open their 2014-2015 Champions League campaign when the team welcomes El Salvadors FAS to Saputo Stadium on Aug. 8.
