SAN DIEGO -- A tourist is coming to town, which generally is not big news in San Diego.However, when that visitor is Zack Greinke, the San Diego Padres take notice.Greinke leads the Arizona Diamondbacks against San Diego on Friday night in the second contest of this three-game series. The Padres won a 9-8 in the series opener Thursday.Both teams are playing out the string on disappointing seasons, but Greinke, no matter what team is on the front of his jersey, does well at Petco Park.The right-hander, who left the Los Angeles Dodgers as a free agent in the offseason, is 3-1 with a 1.69 ERA in eight career starts in San Diegos downtown digs. That includes winning his only decision in two starts against the Padres this year, and it came at Petco.Overall, Greinke has dominated the Padres to the tune of 7-1 with a 1.91 ERA.San Diego could be the soothing tonic Greinke seeks after getting blistered in his last outing. He lasted only 1 2/3 innings against the Boston Red Sox, as they ambushed him for nine runs, 10 hits and three home runs on Sunday.It just happened so fast, I didnt realize how bad it actually was, Greinke said.It was the second-most runs ever allowed by Greinke, falling short of the 11 he yielded to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 2005 game while he was with the Kansas City Royals.Greinke pitched like royalty before the Boston massacre. In his previous 10 starts, he was 8-0 with a nifty 2.47. That is why Arizona manager Chip Hale expects Greinke will find his groove again while battling a lineup consisting mostly of rookies instead of proven hitters who litter the Red Soxs order.Well, they just hit everything he threw up there, Hale said after the Sunday game. It was good pitches they hit. He obviously had some bad locations on some that they hit also. But it was one of those days. Weve all been there. Weve all been on the good side, and weve all been on the bad side.The Padres are looking for the good side from their Friday starter, Jarred Cosart, who was acquired in July from the Miami Marlins.Cosart (0-1, 5.03 ERA overall) is making his fourth start as a Padre and his eighth in total this year. The right-hander pitched well his last time out on Saturday, although he didnt figure in the decision. In six innings, he allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two as the Padres dropped a 3-2, 11-inning decision to the New York Mets.Cosart recorded 15 of his 18 outs via groundballs.Thats usually the kind of pitcher I am, Cosart told MLB.com. Ground-ball guy -- thats what Ive been in the past, going all the way back to the minor leagues.Earlier this year and my last two starts, I was up in the zone a little bit, a little sporadic. If you pitch up in the zone to any big league team, youre going to get hit.The Padres (51-70) and Diamondbacks (50-71), battling to avoid the NL West cellar, will be familiar with each other down the stretch. Over the final 41 games, they will play each other nine times. Lars Eller Stanley Cup Jersey . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. Dennis Maruk Stanley Cup Jersey . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. http://www.cheapcapitalsjerseys.us/dmitry-orlov-stanley-cup-jersey/ . Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers. Alex Chiasson Stanley Cup Jersey . 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. Dale Hunter Stanley Cup Jersey . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. Mohammed Shami foxed England by claiming two wickets on the final day to help India clinch the second Test by a massive 246-run margin in Visakhapatnam on Monday.Englands openers, Alastair Cook and Haseeb Hameed, put on a defiant display on Sunday by adding 75 runs for the first wicket, however they fell in the final session of the day. They had set the standard for the remaining England batsmen by proving that the surface could be negotiated with disciplined batting.On the final day though, Ben Duckett and Joe Root - still new to the crease - found it difficult to answer questions posed by a disciplined India-bowling unit. Duckett was the first to fall for 0, to R Ashwin, after he failed to open his account in the 15 deliveries he faced.Moeen Ali, the centurion from the first Test, looked comfortable against the spinners until a Ravindra Jadeja delivery spun from the rough and induced an edge to leg gully. Englands ambitions of saving the Test was fading early and they looked to Root and Ben Stokes to bail them out of trouble.An inform Stokes, failed to replicate his first-innings heroics as debutant Jayant Yadav produced a faster delivery from around the wicket that drifted, as Stokes played back, and clipped the off stump. England was 1115 for 5 at that stage and any hopes of a revival looked bleak.ddddddddddddShami, who had been impressive through the Test, then produced a spell that foxed even an every-reliant Root and eventually dismissed him. The Shami delivery that dismissed Root, swung late and trapped him on the crease. Root reviewed the decision but Hawkeye proved the on-field umpire right. India had claimed five wickets and reduced the visitors to 142 for 7 at lunch.Jonny Bairstow remained unbeaten on a 57-ball 34, but the rest of the lower order managed just nine runs between them. Adil Rashid was Shamis second wicket of the innings.The biggest positives are how the fast bowlers bowled and Jayants debut, Kohli said. Its always priceless those contributions and it speaks volumes of his character. Im really happy for him. For a young guy to come in and tell me the field he wants, it shows he knows what he is doing. I knew the batsmen uncomfortable. Was lovely to have five bowlers who can pick up wickets. Weve been playing some really good cricket, we dont want to be complacent but dont want to be desperate, either. We respect England.
