tsu, the French coach who led the Senegalese to the quarter-fi

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres needed every bit of a six-run lead they built against the Atlanta Braves thanks in large part to home runs by Logan Forsythe and Will Venable. Martin Perez Rangers Jersey . Forsythe homered in his first at-bat of the season, Venable added a three-run homer and Jason Marquis won his seventh straight decision to lead the Padres to a 7-6 victory against the Braves on Monday night. Marquis took a 7-1 lead into the eighth, when he allowed Jason Heywards solo shot to right-centre with one out and then walked Freddie Freeman with two outs before making way for Tommy Layne. "Two runs through eight, Ill take that tomorrow," manager Bud Black said. "The ninth inning got away from us a little bit, but we had a big enough cushion. The end result is what you look for." Braves rookie Evan Gattis had a pinch-hit, three-run homer with one out in the ninth off Tim Stauffer to pull the Braves to 7-5. Dan Uggla and Chris Johnson were aboard on singles for Gattis 14th homer overall and his fourth pinch-hit shot. He leads all major league rookies with 14 homers and 37 RBIs. Heyward homered to straightaway centre field with two outs in the ninth, his second solo shot of the game and fifth of the season. It came off Dale Thayer, who got the final two outs for his first save in three chances. Marquis (8-2) held Atlanta to two runs and five hits, walked five and struck out four. "He pitched well. He weaves his way through a game. Its great," Black said. Marquis has won seven straight decisions over nine starts, the second-longest streak of his career. His last loss was on April 22 to Milwaukee. "I just tried to carry over what I did in L.A. and try to be real consistent in my delivery and focus down in the zone with my sinker," said Marquis, who beat the Dodgers 6-2 while allowing only three hits in 6 1-3 innings in his previous start. "It helped me get deep into the game." Marquis said keeping the ball down "is a key for me against any team. By no means am I overpowering, so I pitch to contact and my contact has to be on the ground. If I keep the ball in the bottom of the zone, Im going to get those consistent ground balls." Heyward homered on a slider from Marquis. "Probably bad pitch selection, but at that point of the game, up 7-1, sometimes I like to try different things to see where it gets me," Marquis said. "I should have attacked him with a sinker like Id been doing all night, but he put a good swing on it. Hell do some damage with mistake pitches." The Braves lost for just the third time in 10 games. "Im really, really proud of this team," Heyward said. "We have a good team. We dont quit. We have a lot of fun and have a lot of pride, and thats an example of it right there." Seeing a four-run ninth inning "is the bright side of the game," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "You start seeing guys like Heyward and B.J. (Upton) and Justin (Upton) swinging the bats. And Gattis with his fourth pinch-hit home run. You just keep running him out when you get the situation. His swing works. Hes got a short swing and hes a big, strong man." Both of San Diegos homers came off rookie Julio Teheran, who had a no-hitter through 7 2-3 innings in his previous start. Forsythe was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list earlier in the day to take the spot of rookie Jedd Gyorko, who was put on the 15-day DL with a strained groin. Forsythe hit a two-out shot to left-centre in the second, estimated at 445 feet. Venable homered into the Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Deck atop the right-field wall with one out in the fourth to give the Padres a 5-0 lead. Carlos Quentin and Kyle Blanks singled ahead of Venables homer, his eighth. Teheran (4-3) went six innings, allowing five runs and six hits with three strikeouts and no walks. The Padres added two runs in the seventh on Yasmani Grandals single and Marquis double-play ball. NOTES: To make room for Forsythe on the 40-man roster, the Padres designated C John Baker for assignment. ... Gyorko is hitting .284 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs. He has made 51 starts at second base and nine at third. He leads all rookies in batting average, hits (66), runs (36) and total bases (107) while ranking tied for the lead in doubles (17) and second in home runs and RBIs. Gyorko was hurt in a loss Sunday at Colorado. ... Forsythe was placed on the 15-day DL before the season with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 24. ... Padres closer Huston Street pitched a simulated game Monday. Street will pitch an inning Wednesday at Single-A Lake Elsinore. Street went on the 15-day DL June 1, retroactive to May 30, with a strained right calf. Manager Bud Black said Street threw well Monday. Elvis Andrus Rangers Jersey . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Shin-Soo Choo Rangers Jersey . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2.CASABLANCA, Morocco -- Ivory Coast qualified for a third straight World Cup after surviving a nervous finish to draw 1-1 with Senegal for a 4-2 aggregate win in the African playoffs on Saturday. Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. Ivory Coast won the first leg 3-1 at home and held the Senegalese at bay in neutral Morocco until deep into the second half when Drogba dragged down Sadio Mane. Substitute Moussa Sow scored from the 77th-minute spot kick to put Senegal within a goal of eliminating Africas top-ranked team in a major upset. With Senegal surging forward in the dying seconds, and just after coming within inches of a game-changing second goal, Ivory Coast broke away on the counterattack and Yaya Toure set up Kalou four minutes into injury time for the score that sealed their progression. Ivoory Coast made its World Cup debut only in 2006 and has never got out of the group stage, but there are higher hopes in Brazil for the team that boasts some top stars. Mitch Moreland Jersey. . It will join African champion Nigeria at the World Cup, which beat Ethiopia 4-1 on aggregate earlier Saturday to become the continents first team to qualify. Ivory Coast and Senegal met for their second leg in Casablanca because of a stadium ban on Senegal after a riot in an African Cup qualifier between the teams last year. It was also the first Senegal game since the death of Bruno Metsu, the French coach who led the Senegalese to the quarter-finals at the 2002 World Cup, the teams first and still only appearance at the finals. Senegal was far more adventurous in the early stages as Ivory Coast tried to protect its aggregate lead and Dame Ndoyes header was kept out only by a goal-line clearance from Drogba. Papiss Cisse shot straight at Ivorian goalkeeper Boubacar Barry when clean through three minutes into the second half. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
