San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Homer Bailey got the Cincinnati Reds back on track by firing 8 1/3 outstanding innings in a 4-1 victory over the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. Bailey (6-10) yielded just six hits and one unearned run to halt a four-start losing streak and put an end to five straight Cincinnati losses that included setbacks in each of the first two tests of this three-game set. The hard- throwing righty took a shutout bid into the ninth that was spoiled by Chase Headleys one-out RBI double. The Reds mustered a mere five runs during the slide, but collected 11 hits in the finale and scored three times with the aid of a San Diego error in the seventh inning. Brandon Phillips led the charge by going 3-for-5 with a solo home run, while Joey Votto came through with a two-run double in the triumph. "We battled and battled, and Homer gave us all we needed," said Reds manager Dusty Baker. Eric Stults (8-10) threw 6 2/3 innings in a solid performance for the Padres, but was charged with all four runs -- only one of which was earned -- while permitting 10 hits. "Stults matched [Bailey] all the way through until the seventh, but Bailey was good," said Padres manager Bud Black. Yonder Alonso and Alexi Amarista each had two hits for San Diego, which had a four-game win streak snapped. While Bailey silenced the Padres bats for much of the afternoon, San Diego did make some noise prior to Wednesdays trade deadline by acquiring former 21- game winner Ian Kennedy from Arizona in exchange for lefty reliever Joe Thatcher and minor league pitcher Matt Stites. Bailey faced the minimum through the first three innings and allowed a runner to reach second only once until the ninth. That came in the fourth, when Chris Denorfia and Alonso each singled but were left stranded. He was staked to an early 1-0 edge courtesy of Phillips, who ended a 1-for-17 skid by hammering a Stults slider over the wall in straightaway center to begin the top of the second. The Reds had a chance to extend the lead a frame later after Derrick Robinson and Chris Heisey opened the third with consecutive singles. Robinson was thrown out attempting to steal third, however, two batters before Phillips delivered a base hit that likely would have drove in a run. Cincinnati finally broke out of its scoring slump in the seventh, capitalizing on a costly throwing error by Headley that lengthened the inning. With one on and two out, Headley fielded a grounder off the bat of Robinson near the third-base bag but was off the mark with his throw to first. Heisey followed with a bloop single to left that plated a run, then Votto ended Stults day with a double to right that scored both Robinson and Heisey for a 4-0 advantage. Bailey entered the ninth having set down 10 of the last 11 men he faced, but the Padres put the lead runner on when Votto mishandled Everth Cabreras grounder to first. One out later, Headley drove a pitch into the gap in left center to finally get San Diego on the board and prompt Baker to summon closer Aroldis Chapman to the mound. "I felt fine," said Bailey. "I definitely wish I could have finished that one, but weve got a pretty good closer coming in behind me." Chapman, who served up a game-winning two-run homer to Denorfia in Mondays opener, bounced back by retiring the next two hitters to notch his 25th save.

The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. Roston Chase, the 24-year-old West Indies batting allrounder, had endured an underwhelming debut in the first Test against India in Antigua. He scored 23 and 8, sent down 34 fruitless overs, giving away 102 runs.However, Chase put the disappointment behind and picked up his maiden five-wicket haul on Monday in Indias first innings score of 500 for 9 at Sabina Park. It is a great feeling to get five wickets in any match, but at Test level, it is a great feeling for me, he said. I have just started my Test career and it is a great confidence boost for me that I can do it at this level.Chase had earned his maiden call-up to the Test side after a good run in the WICBs regional first-class tournament in which he was fourth on the run-scoring charts with 710 runs at 59.16.In Kingston, West Indies were made to earn every wicket as Indias batsmen mentally wore them down by displaying ample patience and discipline in their defence and shot-making. Yes, it was hard for me. Its Test cricket, so you are never taught that it will be easy, Chase admitted. But [in] the first game, I found out that my line was a bit too wide. So I adjusted my line and length in this match and the skipper told me to do that - to attack the batsmen more and hold a tighter line, and it worked for me.Chase, whose wickets included those of Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, felt that variations helped him improve in this game, and cutting down on pace helped him extract more turn. As I am 64, I tend to get a lot of bounce, but I found that I wasnt only getting bounce this time but I was alsoo getting some turn as well, so that helped me a lot, he said.dddddddddddd I was spinning some balls and straightening some of them as well. I also tried to vary my pace in the game as I found that in the last match, I was a bit too quick. So when I slowed the ball down, I got more results in the match.Chase turned his arm over for 36.1 overs, the most for his team in Indias first innings, but said he was used to it despite being in the side as a batting allrounder. I am mainly a batsman, but earlier, in our local first-class season, I wasnt bowling a lot earlier on. But some of our players left for West Indies duty, so thats when I got an opportunity to express myself as a bowler. I am a bit accustomed to bowling now.While there was uncertainty on the weather front due to expected tropical storms, West Indies may have to bat for a significant amount of time, rain interruptions notwithstanding, with two days left in the match. With a 304-run deficit after Indias declaration, Chase admitted that they would need more than the odd spark of brilliance.We are a bit behind the eight-ball, but I believe that once the team pulls together, we have been seeing glimpses in the first game and this game that we have the ability to compete at this level. But we just need to streamline it a bit more so that we can have a better collective effort. As I said, we have had some glimpses, but we just have to streamline it and we will be fine. ' ' '
