r a crushing right from Lemieux.

SAN DIEGO -- Andrew Cashner is "totally aware" the San Diego Padres have never had a no-hitter in their mostly sad-sack history, which has now reached 46 seasons and 7,176 games. Nike Air Force 1 Red . After throwing his second one-hitter in a span of five starts, the big Texan is the leading candidate to end that drought. "Thats one of my goals. I definitely want a no-hitter," Cashner said after allowing just one single and striking out 11 in a 6-0 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. "I dont think theres any reason why I cant build off this. When you get late in a game and your pitch counts high, youve really got to bear down and grind through. I think this will build toward something down the road." Cashner took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Rajai Davis hit a one-out flare single into centre field, just past the glove of outstretched second baseman Jedd Gyorko. Davis stole second and third, and Ian Kinsler walked before Miguel Cabrera hit into a double play. Cashner ended his remarkable outing by striking out Cabrera, the AL MVP in 2012 and 2013, on a 95-mph fastball. On Sept. 16 at Pittsburgh, the right-hander carried a perfect game into the seventh inning and faced the minimum 27 batters in a one-hitter. He retired his first 18 batters before Jose Tabata grounded a clean single into right field leading off the seventh. Cashner said Friday nights one-hitter meant more. "Just with the guys in their lineup, it was a lot bigger game. Theyve got a heck of a team over there. A lot of guys can hit the ball out of the park." Chase Headley hit a two-run homer and finished with three RBIs. Cashner (1-1) retired 14 in a row before allowing the single. He walked two. "I felt as good as Ive felt in a while," he said. "Im conditioned to run the bases and to be a complete ballplayer." Manager Bud Black said Cashner was so good because of "tremendous movement with command" of his fastball. That was a well-pitched game. Well-pitched. As good as youre going to see." Five of his strikeouts were looking, including all three in the third, when he caught pitcher Rick Porcello, Davis and Kinsler looking at strike three. "He was just beating guys with his velocity. They just couldnt get the head out front," Black said. "But when you have a pitcher hitting the glove for called third strikes, and you see the look on the hitters, and I saw that early on, I knew he had a good feel for his fastball." Dating to Aug. 19, Cashner has allowed two or fewer earned runs in nine straight starts for an ERA of 0.96. "He pitched outstanding," said Brad Ausmus, who worked in San Diegos front office before being hired as Detroits manager in early November. "Hes always been a hard thrower. He located extremely well. His slider was extremely effective, his changeup. I know hes not a household name, but I know what h is capable of." The Padres hit Porcello hard, collecting 10 hits in his 6 1-3 innings. He left after Cashner singled. The Padres were onto Porcello from the start. Everth Cabrera hit a leadoff single, advanced on two groundouts and scored on Gyorkos triple. The ball hit the heel of right fielder Don Kellys glove and hit the ground as Kelly slammed headfirst into the wall. After being checked by a trainer, Kelly stayed in the game. Headley then doubled into the left-centre gap to bring in Gyorko. Headley homered to right on a 2-2 slider from Porcello with one out in the sixth, his first. It was estimated at 385 feet. Seth Smith was aboard on a leadoff double. Porcello (1-1) allowed five runs and struck out five. "There were a couple of balls up in the zone that the Padres hitters took advantage of," Ausmus said. "But he kept us in the game. Its really more about the way Cashner pitched more than anything else." NOTES: Padres CF Cameron Maybin, who ruptured his left biceps tendon making a diving catch in a spring game on March 2, began a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso. Manager Bud Black said hed like Maybin to get more than 20 at-bats during the assignment. "Right now hes restarting his spring training," Black said. "Hes in baseball shape. Now weve got to get him in baseball-ready shape." ... Black said pitcher Josh Johnson, whos also on the DL, still has soreness in his forearm. ... Black said LF Carlos Quentin, on the DL with a bone bruise in his left knee, is working in the weight room and hitting in the indoor batting cage. Black said Quentin is getting close to hitting on the field. ... The series continues Saturday night when Tigers RHP Justin Verlander (0-1, 2.57 ERA) is scheduled to face RHP Ian Kennedy (1-1, 3.27). Verlander was one of several top players the Padres could have taken with the first pick in the 2004 amateur draft. Instead, they took local SS Matt Bush, who was a bust. Verlander went to the Tigers with the second overall pick. Nike Juvenate Black & White Trainers . Making his first start since helping the U.S. win the Presidents Cup, the 2012 U.S. Open champion shot an 8-under 63 to reach 15 under. He had nine birdies and a bogey -- on the par-5 16th in his opening nine. Nike Air Force 1 07 Mid White Trainers .C. -- Andrea Petkovic remembered why she started playing tennis and along the way gave everyone else a reminder about how talented she is when shes at her best.QUEBEC -- Adonis Stevenson retained his World Boxing Council light heavyweight title as he stopped Tony Bellew in the sixth round on Saturday night at the Pepsi Colisee. Stevenson (23-1) knocked down Bellew (20-2-1) with a left uppercut. When the Englishman got up, he was stunned with another left followed by a flurry of shots. Bellew was not fighting back, even though he was still on his feet when referee Michael Griffin stopped the bout. It was a second defence for the Montreal fighter since taking the belt with a spectacular first-round KO of Chad Dawson in June. He defended with a seven-round win in September over Tavoris Cloud. Bellew looked to be backing up and avoiding big shots from the power-punching Stevenson in the early round, looking to catch his opponent off guard with sudden attacks. It looked to be working in the fourth, when Bellew had his best moments with some right hand shots over the top. In the co-feature, Sergey Kovalev kept the World Boxing Organization light heavyweight title with a stunning knockout of Ismayl Sillakh only 52 seconds into the second round on Saturday night. After an uneventful opening round, Kovalev dropped 15th-ranked Sillakh with a right early in the second. The Russian was jumping up and down in his corner waiting to get back as the referee gave Sillakh (21-2) an eight-count, then ran up and floored him with another right that ended the bout. The hard-hitting Kovalev (23-0-1), a Russian based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is often mentioned as a future opponent for Stevenson. "Im ready to fight any champion," Kovalev said after his first defence of the belt he won with a four round KO over Nathan Cleverly in August. In his post-fight comments, Stevenson mentioned veteran Bernard Hopkins and English super-middleweight champion Carl Froch as opponents hed like to face next. There was a spectacular IBF welterweight elimination bout that saw Laval, Que., based Ionut (JoJo) Dan take a split decision over Quebec City favourite Kevin Bizier despite being deducted a point. With the win, Dan takes over the No. 2 ranking and movess closer to a shot at the title currently held by Devon Alexander. Nike Juvenate Mens Australia. It was a close bout between fighters who reply more on technique than power. Dan (32-2) looked to land a few more shots than Bizier (21-1), who appeared to have turned the tide when he hurt his Romanian-born opponent with a right late in the ninth. Bizier was warned twice about throwing Dan to the floor after clinches late in the bout, but it was Dan who then got a point deducted for holding. The first judge gave it to Bizier by 117-110, the next had it 116-111 for Dan and the third scored it 114-113 for Dan. "I think the ref gave him the point too easily," said Dan. "I didnt do nothing. "I think my experience helped me to win. I respect Bizier. Hes a great fighter, but even one point down, I win." A battle of knockout artists had the crowd on its feet as David Lemieux (31-2), a ranked middleweight from Laval, knocked hard-headed Colombian Jose Miguel Torres (27-6) down seven times before the scheduled 10-round bout was stopped by the referee 1:48 into the seventh. Torres was floored twice in the second round, again in the fourth, and twice more in the sixth and seventh before he finally stayed down after a crushing right from Lemieux. Welterweight Mikael Zewski (22-0) of Trois-Rivieres, Que. stopped 35-year-old Ryan Lee Davis (24-12-3) with three knockdowns in the third round, one on a liver shot, of their scheduled eight-round bout. Montreal-based Russian light heavyweight Artur Beterbiev (3-0) stung William Ray Bailey (12-18) with a jab and finished him with a short right to the temple only 2:49 into their scheduled six-rounder. The 2009 world amateur champion has needed only six rounds to win his three pro fights. The crowd roared as local 32-year-old heavyweight Eric Martel Bohoeli (10-3) knocked down Didier Bence (9-1) of Montreal twice en route to a stoppage at 1:44 of the second round of their eight rounder. Local favourite Sebastien Bouchard (8-0) won all six rounds against slow, light-hitting Belgian middleweight Mohammed Sidi Slimani (4-2). cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
