Title: manager Ned Yost said. Well
Blog Entry: WASHINGTON -- The San Diego Padres three-city road trip didnt begin well. Nike Air Max 90 Shoes Sale . Earning their first series victory against the Washington Nationals since 2011 is helping to turn it around.Alex Dickerson and Ryan Schimpf hit back-to-back homers off Shawn Kelley in the eighth inning and the Padres added four runs off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth to beat the Nationals 10-6 on Sunday.Weve been on the road for a little bit, and its definitely good to come here against a team like this and get two wins out of it, said Schimpf, whose team suffered a four-game sweep in St. Louis before winning two of three in Washington.Ryan Buchter (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth to earn the victory.With the game tied at 6, Wil Myers drew a one-out walk off Papelbon and moved to second on a wild pitch before Yangervis Solartes RBI single. The Padres added two more singles to load the bases, setting up Alexei Ramirezs three-run double.Nationals manager Dusty Baker then relieved Papelbon (2-3), who was booed after giving up his first runs since June 12.Not to make excuses, I dont like to use my closer three days in a row and this is three days in a row for Pap, Baker said. But we didnt have a choice. The ball wasnt coming out today the way it had been since he came back from the injury.Papelbon, who hadnt pitched on three consecutive days since May 29-31, insisted he was not tired.I think just location, Papelbon said. Coming in there, a situation where weve got to preserve everything we can, and every pitch matters in that situation. One pitch away from getting out of that. Boiled down to missed location on Solarte and he was able to just get enough barrel on the ball to have that one drop right in front of (outfielder Michael A.) Taylor.The Nationals led 6-4 before Kelley, who entered to start the eighth, yielded consecutive home runs. It was the ninth home run in July for Schimpf, a Padres record for a rookie in a calendar month. San Diego also extended a franchise record with its 22nd consecutive game with a home run.Everyone played their part today and everyone came through, Ramirez said. The eighth inning was just as important as the ninth tying it and it allowed us to keep fighting in the game.Washington recalled top prospect Lucas Giolito before the game. The right-hander, making his third career start, gave up four runs and four hits in 3 1/3 innings, then was optioned back to Triple-A Syracuse along with Taylor after the loss.San Diego start Christian Friedrich gave up five runs and six hits in 3 innings. The Padres bullpen combined to allow three hits and a walk in 6 innings.You get a short outing from your starter and he didnt quite have his stuff today, and the bullpen comes up with six innings and gives up one run, Padres manager Andy Green said. It was a borderline-dominant effort from them.FORGETTABLE PLAYSan Diegos fourth-inning rally was halted when Washington catcher Wilson Ramos picked Derek Norris off first base with the bases loaded and one out. Norris established a big lead with the shift on, but first baseman Daniel Murphy snuck in behind him to take Ramos throw.Its no small thing, and honestly, its borderline embarrassing when things like that happen on a baseball field, Green said. Its not on him or any person in particular, but were better than that.GLOVER OPTIONEDWashington optioned RHP Koda Glover to Triple-A Syracuse. Glover pitched two scoreless innings for the Nationals last week in his first major league action.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: OF Melvin Upton Jr., a possible trade deadline target for contending teams, was not in the lineup. I think theres a lot swirling around him right now, and it just felt like the right time to put him down and let him have a day of rest, Green said.Nationals: The team said RHP Aaron Barrett, who underwent Tommy John surgery in September, suffered a right elbow fracture Friday and will have surgery Monday.UP NEXTPadres: San Diego begins the final stop on a 10-game road trip when it opens a three-game series against Toronto on Monday. Colin Rea (5-4, 5.01) faces the Blue Jays for the first time.Nationals: Gio Gonzalez (6-8, 4.53) starts Tuesday at Cleveland as Washington begins a nine-game road trip after playing 15 of its last 19 at home.

I wasnt looking for anything specific. I wanted to get on base. Before I had gotten on base in every at-bat.With the game tied and if I get myself in scoring position, theres a good chance for me to touch home plate. I got into it pretty good and got it over the fence, but the main focus was just putting the barrel on the ball and try to get on base.The loss dropped the Royals to 48-49, the first time the World Series champions have been below .500 since May 15 when they were 18-19.

Griffin left after allowing four hits in five innings, including Kendrys Morales home run in the fourth inning. Morales had three of the Royals seven hits.I tried to keep them off balance as well as I could, Griffin said. Its a good team win. Delino had a great day.
