Carlos Carvalhal said he was proud of his Sheffield Wednesday side following their Sky Bet Championship play-off final defeat to Hull City. A stunning strike from Mo Diame sealed an instant return to the Premier League for the Tigers as the Owls 16-year wait for a top flight return continues. But despite the heartbreak, the Portuguese manager - who was unknown in English football at the start of the season - was delighted with how his side have performed, although did concede that Hull were the better side. Im proud of the players, the club and the fans but at the same time we are unhappy because weve lost the final but football is good when we dream, Carvalhal told Sky Sports. Dejected Sheffield Wednesday players are left on the pitch I must talk in two different ways. One, I think we had a really fantastic season and nobody expected us to finish in this position. Another thing is the final, and we played against a strong team. We fight, we ran, we tried to organise but today Hull were better than us and they deserved to win.Even in the second half, we started to play a little bit better, to press higher up like we usually do but today, in this game, the details make the difference and it was a fantastic goal that did it. But you have to be very good to be at Wembley and although we lose one game in the final, in my opinion, it was with very good quality and we deserve everything we have lived so far, so I am proud.Sheffield Wednesday fans were in fine voice throughout the game, and even stayed behind after the final whistle to applaud their squad, with Carvalhal also praising them for their contribution on Saturday. Highlights of Hull v Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship play-off final The atmosphere was fantastic, as was the emotional reaction we had with the fans so when we finished the game, me and my players are very proud, he added.Our fans are enjoying the way that we play and its something we want to achieve and continue this kind of work. We want our fans to be proud of the team. They pay for the tickets and they like what they are looking at.I cant say we are happy because we arent but of course, the way that we finished the game and the way that the fans greeted us with a big applause makes us ready for the next season.The Owls will face the likes of Newcastle and Aston Villa next season, as well as other established Championship clubs vying for a promotion spot, but Carvalhal will be taking it game-by-game. Hull Citys midfielder Tom Huddlestone (R) tackles Sheffield Wednesdays English defender Sam Hutchinson (2L) With the Championship, you never know what can happen because its a hard competition. What we want to stay is our brand and quality of football which we usually play better than today, but during the season we play very good football. With the results, you never know with this kind of competition so we must go step-by-step again because next season will be a very tough league with the teams that are relegated and the strong teams that we have in the competition but Im sure we will start next season better than we started this season.I think weve woken up the giant and Sheffield Wednesday have woken up. All the clubs will now respect our club like we deserve. Also See: Diame fires Hull back to the PL As it happened Joe Carter Jersey .

SAN DIEGO -- Zach Davies gets his first August start on Tuesday, and he would be pleased if it duplicates his July efforts.The Milwaukee Brewers right-hander faces San Diego, hoping his summer surge has life. Right-hander Luis Perdomo goes for the Padres at Petco Park.Davies (8-4, 3.59 ERA) was sensational in July, starting four games, winning three and showing the Brewers why they have such high hopes for him. He pitched to a 1.71 ERA in the month, posting a nifty 17-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio as he leaned on his pinpoint control.Hes a real pitcher, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. He has four pitches, and he lives out on the edge with them. He speeds up their bats and slows them down.Davies has impressed Counsell -- as well as the batters he has faced the past month.Hes got those four pitches, and he can manipulate all four of them, Counsell said.The Padres eventually hope to see similar results from Perdomo (5-4, 6.89 ERA). The 23-year-old had never pitched above Class A ball before this season. A Rule 5 draft pick out of the St. Louis Cardinals system last winter, he was expected to have a long role out of the bullpen.The Padres hoped to ease him into his role as a major league starter, but following a flurry of trades, Perdomo is being asked to accelerate his learning curve.After San Diego nearly wiped the rotation clean by trading away James Shields, Drew Pomeranz and Andrew Cashner -- and with Tyson Ross sidelined due to a shoulder injury since his Opening Day start -- Perdomos responsibilities blossomed.So, too, has his pitching.Perdomo has given up three earned runs or fewer in six of hiis past eight starts dating to June 15.ddddddddddddFive outings in that span were quality starts. He won both of his past two starts, including a road victory over the Toronto Blue Jays last Wednesday, when he gave up four runs in 5 2/3 innings.In his prior start, Perdomo pitched a career-high seven innings and allowed just two runs on four hits in a road win against the Washington Nationals.Weve seen tremendous gains in Perdomo, Padres manager Andy Green said. When he made his major league debut (in) April, he was a Rule 5 draft pick who had never pitched above low Single-A. Now hes growing confidence that his pitches play in the major leagues. He can get outs with that very good sinker of his. Hes making steps. The next step is ... to locate his pitches with consistency.Its there, he just has to keep developing it. There are going to be peaks and valleys, but were seeing substantial strides forward.The Brewers hope the lineup that faces Perdomo will include left fielder Ryan Braun. He hasnt played since Wednesday due to tightness in his right side.Milwaukees catching situation is also worth watching in the wake of trading Jonathan Lucroy, a two-time All-Star, to the Texas Rangers. Martin Maldonado was in the lineup on Monday, going 1-for-3 in the Brewers 7-3 loss to the Padres, and he is expected to get his second consecutive start Tuesday.However, Counsell said Manny Pina, who was brought up from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday, also will see action going forward.
