SAN DIEGO -- Kyle Hendricks has another weapon, although its not a pitch.It was on display when the Chicago Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 to complete a three-game sweep on Wednesday.Its confidence, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. The biggest thing from last year to this year is the confidence thing. I think he believes he is one of the best right now.Hendricks, the major league ERA leader, pitched six effective innings to pace the Cubs.Maybe he wasnt as sharp as usual, but he was really good, Maddon said.Hendricks (12-7) gave up two runs and four hits, striking out eight and leaving with a 2.19 ERA. He has allowed no more than three earned runs in 17 straight starts.Over that span, Hendricks has pitched to a 1.70 ERA.Today I had some bad at the beginning and some good at the end, he said. I had both ends of the spectrum there.At the beginning my command was a little off. I finally started getting the ball down and found the movement on my two-seamer and started spotting that better. I was on a roll from there.Three Cubs relievers took over for the NL Central leaders, with Aroldis Chapman pitching the ninth for his 29th save in 32 chances.I knew (Hendricks) was going to be really good this year but he has taken it to another level, Maddon said.Willson Contreras homered and Ben Zobrist drove in two runs as the Cubs won for the 22nd time in 27 games. At 81-45, they are 36 games over .500 for the first time since ending the 1945 season at 98-56.That was really loud, Maddon said of Contreras blast. You knew that was a home run when he hit it.The Padres have dropped nine of their past 12. Paul Clemens (2-3) took the loss.Jorge Soler and Addison Russell also drove in runs for the Cubs as they scored at least three runs for the 23rd consecutive game, second this season only to the Baltimore Orioles (28).Ryan Schimpf tripled and doubled for the Padres.The Cubs started fast when Dexter Fowler led off the game with a double and Kris Bryant nearly launched his third homer of the series. Instead, his drive hit the top of the wall and ended up being a long single.Kris Bryant is a tough hitter, Padres manager Andy Green said. Some guys have lanes you can pitch through, some hitters have small little holes. Kris Bryant has small holes.Zobrist then hit a two-run triple and scored on Solers sacrifice fly.Thats been the story of the last two outings, that first inning, Clemens said. Maybe I just got to wind myself up more in the bullpen.Maddon said jumping ahead was a key.We came out nicely in the first inning and that gave us the edge, he said. And Kyle ran with it from there.UP NEXTCubs: LHP Mike Montgomery (1-1, 2.77) starts Friday in the opener of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. He makes his second start for the Cubs, after taking a no-hitter into the fifth inning on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies.Padres: RHP Jarred Cosart (0-1, 4.54) opens Fridays three-game set at Miami. He was traded from the Marlins to San Diego last month. Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Acheter . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Nmd r2 Primeknit .

The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times.

They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. Balenciaga Speed Trainer Femme . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. NORMAN, Okla. -- Khadeem Lattin showed he could also be a force on the offensive end for Oklahoma during the Sooners season opener on Sunday.The junior forward, mostly called upon for his defense to this point in his career, showed his offensive chops against Northwestern State, posting a career-high 19 points to go with 11 rebounds and lifting Oklahoma to a 97-61 rout.The only other returning starter from last seasons Final Four team, Jordan Woodard, added 16 points for Oklahoma (1-0). Coach Lon Kruger subbed early and often as 10 Sooners scored in the first half while Oklahoma raced to a 46-27 lead.Oklahoma has won 14 straight season openers and 19 straight home openers. The Sooners improved to 31-2 at home against nonconference opponents under Kruger.This group is going to make progress all the way through March, Kruger said. . Its going to be a work in progress for a while, but Im excited to see where they go and who steps up and who is doing what roles. Being that much different than last year is one of the more intriguing, enjoyable parts of this team -- the uncertainty of what lies ahead and who does what.Lattin was 7 of 9 from the field against Northwestern State (0-2). He had two baskets in an 18-2 run to start the game. After the Demons closed to 35-24, Lattin added two more during the final 4:24 of the half. The double-double was the third of his career.He said it was a different feeling to be an offensive focal point for the Sooners.You change the way you think, but you always just want the best results for your team, Lattin said. My teammates, we all do a really good job of moving the ball and were a really well-balanced team. We are able to attack and do things from all parts of the floor and thats really exciting.Zeek Woodley, the second-leading career scorer in NCAA Division I, led Northwestern State with 19 points, and Ishmael Lane and Malik Metoyer added 11 and 10, respectively. But there wasnt much else positive for the Demons, coach Mike McConathy said.Lane played hard but he couldnt finish plays, McConathy said. Zeek Woodley had a good line and Malik Metoyer . really had a lot of pop to him. Zeek is kind of a non-traditional player in that he is very efficient offensively. Hes very smooth. He kind of moves like hes loafing, but hes moving. I thought he competed well.BIG PICTURENortthwestern State: For the Demons, it was another chance to test themselves against a major-conference foe as they prepare for Southland Conference play.dddddddddddd Theyve got two more opportunities to do so -- and maybe steal what would be a highlight win -- with road games at Missouri and Mississippi State later this month.Oklahoma: This was a classic icebreaker for the Sooners, who wanted a low-risk game to get acclimated to life without Buddy Hield, Isaiah Cousins and Ryan Spangler -- who started the past three seasons -- before likely facing their true first test later this week. The Sooners are 9-1 all-time against current Southland Conference members, including 6-0 against Northwestern State.BUFORD OUTOklahoma was without one of its more experienced players in sophomore Dante Buford. Buford was ruled ineligible for the Sooners first three games of the season for receiving an extra benefit for one of his complimentary tickets during last seasons NCAA tournament. Buford averaged 3.5 points per game off the bench last season for Oklahomas Final Four team.OKLAHOMAS NEW KIWIMatt Freeman might be a long way from challenging Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams as the states favorite New Zealand native, but the 6-foot-10 freshman made a strong first impression. Freeman went 3 of 4 from 3-point range, had a steal-and-dunk in the second half and finished with 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting.Im going to put it down to my poker face, to be honest with you, Freeman said. It was tough the first time I came out there . but the more you get up and down the court and get used to it, its just a basketball game.UP NEXTNorthwestern State: The Demons will take a break from their string of road games -- with four of their first six games against major-college foes -- to host NCAA Division III LeTourneau (Texas) on Friday and Louisiana State-Alexandria of the NAIA on Nov. 22.Oklahoma: The Sooners will travel to Orlando, Florida to play in the Tire Pros Invitational.
