SAN DIEGO -- Brandon Finnegan and two Cincinnati Reds relievers Friday night ruined what could have been an epic showdown Saturday night at Petco Park. Brandon Marshall Jersey .Or, they beat Anthony DeSclafini to the punch.Finnegan, Michael Lorenzen and Blake Wood shut out the Padres on six hits Friday night at Petco Park -- meaning the Padres didnt get a home run , ending San Diegos National League record-tying streak of games with at least one homer at 25 straight.The effort of the Reds trio ruined a showdown rematch between the Padres hitters and another right-handed Reds starter -- DeSclafini.Back on June 26, DeSclafini and left-handed reliever Tony Cingrani combined to shut out the Padres on five hits. In their very next game, the Padres launched their streak of homering in 25 straight games.The win over the Padres was the second in the DeSclafinis run of six straight wins.DeSclafini will be making his 10th start of the season Saturday night. He is the first Cincinnati pitcher to produce at least six wins without a loss over his first nine starts since Paul Wilson went 6-0 in his first nine starts in 2004.DeSclafini has a 3.09 earned run average since starting his 2016 season 10 weeks late due to a strained left oblique muscle suffered in his last spring training start.Anthony is just hitting his stride, Reds manager Bryan Price said of the 26-year-old, who was 9-for-13 with a 4.05 ERA in 31 starts for the Reds last season.DeSclafini will be matched against Padres left-hander Christian Friedrich Saturday night, who overnight became the dean of the Padres rotation when right-handed starters Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea were both traded to Miami Thursday morning in a seven-player trade.Saturday will be Friedrichs 14th start, which is the most among the Padres current rotation of -- from top to bottom -- Luis Perdomo, Friedrich, Edwin Jackson (who gave up six runs to the Reds on Friday night on 10 hits in five innings), Paul Clemens and Jarred Cosart, who was one of four players acquired by the Padres from the Marlins.Clemens replaces Rea in the Padres rotation Sunday in the series finale against the Reds. Cosart moves into the rotation Monday when the Brewers come to Petco Park.The 28-year-old Friedrich has a 5.00 ERA and his performance has been slipping.His most recent start last Sunday in Washington was his shortest of the season, lasting only three innings during which he allowed five runs on six hits and a walk with no strikeouts.Christian is fine when he hits his spots, said Padres manager Andy Green. But he has to hit his spots to be in command.Friedrich is 0-4 over his last five starts with a 7.72 ERA. He is 1-5 over his last seven starts with a 7.86 ERA.His ERA has climbed in each of his last seven starts, ballooning from 2.12 to 5.00. Still, the Padres are 6-7 in his 13 starts.One of the things you like about Friedrich is that he is competitive, said Green. Hes going to give you everything he has. With a few exceptions, hes given us a chance to win. For the most part, hes been in close games.But Friedrichs margin of error might be reduced if DeSclafini duplicates his first career start against the Padres on June 26. Bradley Roby Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Courtland Sutton Jersey . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. http:///...arian-stewart-jersey . Belfort (24-10) needed just 77 seconds to down Henderson in the headlining bout of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson" event at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil. The fight served as a rematch of the pairs 2006 meeting, which Henderson won by decision.INDIANAPOLIS - For sale by owner: Major sponsorship for NASCARs most popular driver. Act fast, time is running out. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is not only looking for his first win of the season, hes still hunting for a big-bucks sponsor for 12 Sprint Cup races this season. Earnhardt said hes not worried, a sign that perhaps Hendrick Motorsports has a deal on the horizon. "It is important to try to fill out what we have this season and we will," Earnhardt said Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. "I dont have any doubt at all that we will get that done. I think we almost have to look forward beyond that to try to find out who is going to be the partner that we can put a long term deal together that matches up with what we want to do in the future." Thats part of the problem. Hendrick and Earnhardt would love to find a primary sponsor that would fund whats left on this seasons slate as well as 2014, and possibly beyond. With 16 races left, putting together a multi-year deal with a committed corporate backer seems almost impossible to pull off. "Its just all the dollars and cents are accounted for at this point in the year," Earnhardt said. "That doesnt mean we cant put some things together and do some creative stuff with some people and some partners that we already have." Earnhardts sponsorship woes started when Pepsi, through Diet Mountain Dew and Amp, sliced its sponsorship from 20 races to five in 2013. The National Guard did bolster its support of the No. 88, going from 16 to 20 races. Earnhardt, whos made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship each of the last two seasons, is somewhat hindered in finding the right fit because of conflicts with committed corporate sponsors. For example, his Pepsi deal is the reason he ditched Budweiser when he signed with Hendrick for the 2008 season. Its not like he doesnt have options. Earnhardt is one of the superstar faces of NASCAR. Even as the wins have dried up, he was still voted NASCARs most popular driver for each of the last 10 years. Josey Jewell Jersey. . Owner Rick Hendrick isnt interested in sponsors looking to work their way in for a race or two, or the kind of companies that would conflict with his corporate image. Earnhardt was set to drive an unsponsored race at Daytona until Hendrick put the National Guard on the No. 88. Hell use the National Guard again for Sundays race at Indy. Another reason he can be picky: The sponsorship he does have on the 88 is so lucrative that he has one of the highest-funded cars in the garage even with available inventory. Hes also kept an eye on sponsorship for his Nationwide Series program competing under the JR Motorsports banner. Great Clips signed on as primary sponsor for 28 races this season. Great Clips and Hendrick on Friday announced a three-year extension through 2016 that bumped its primary sponsorship from three Cup races a season to 10 for Kasey Kahnes No. 5 Chevrolet. Great Clips also will serve as a major associate sponsor. Great Clips will be on Kahnes car this weekend in Indianapolis and again for the Sept. 22 race at New Hampshire. "They continue to see a great return on investment, and were focused on continuing that trend by performing at a high level on the racetrack while delivering business wins," Hendrick said. Earnhardt, though, said he didnt know how Great Clips increase would affect its future relationship with his Nationwide program. He seems just as confident that hell find the right sponsors. "We have some potential to have some really interesting things announced down the road with that," he said. "Due to how well weve run this year and how weve been able to turn that program around, we definitely caught the eyes of a few sponsors and potential partners. So, were looking a lot better on that front, too. I think everything is going to be fine. I dont believe anybody needs to be too concerned at this point."
