WASHINGTON -- After striking out 13 times in an 11-1 loss to Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals on Friday night, the San Diego Padres had reason to look forward to facing a much less-imposing pitcher on Saturday. But San Diego had even more trouble against right-hander Tanner Roark, who pitched a three-hitter for the first complete game of his career as the Nationals shut out the Padres 4-0. The 27-year-old set down the first 16 batters before San Diego catcher Rene Rivera, an .074 batter entering the game, hit a solid single to centre field with one out in the sixth inning. San Diego managed to get just two more singles in the game and didnt get a runner past second base. "He had a good sinker, changeup, was keeping the ball down especially," said San Diego first baseman Yonder Alonzo, who went 0-for-3. San Diego entered Saturdays game tied for the second-worst batting average in the National League (.226) and saw it drop further. In a span of 19 hours and 18 innings, the Padres got 13 hits, all singles, and fanned 21 times. When Saturdays game was over, only two of the nine players San Diego started had batting averages better than .200 -- shortstop Everth Cabrera (.300) and outfielder Chris Denorfia (.324). "We do hope that the offence gets better, that guys get to their career averages -- at some point," manager Bud Black said. San Diego struggled in many facets on Saturday. The Padres made three infield errors. Second baseman Jedd Gyorko would have had two had it not been for a generous ruling. Jayson Werths hopper up the middle might have been an inning-ending double-play. But after it was initially ruled an error, it was changed to a single. Either way, the play allowed Washington to grab a 3-0 lead in the first inning, all the runs the Nationals needed against Padres ace Andrew Cashner (2-3). "What weve got to stay away from is the hitters letting their offence go into their defence," Black said. "When you dont score and you make a couple errors, they become magnified because its so important when youre not scoring." Mixing three other pitches with his modest 92 mph fastball, Roark (2-0) walked one and struck out eight, including Gyorko to end the game on his 105th pitch. "I was feeling confident out there on the mound, felling strong," Roark said. "Getting ahead of the hitters is the biggest thing." Roark has been more than a one-hit wonder for the Nationals. Since taking his spot in the rotation, he has produced eight quality starts in 10 attempts with a 5-1 record. Roark extended his run of consecutive scoreless innings to 18. In 35 innings at Nationals Park he has given up one earned run. On Saturday, he extended the frustrations of the Padres. "We played terrible today, honestly," Alonzo said. "We didnt defend, didnt hit. Cash kept us in the game, He always does. Hes our ace. He will always keep us in the game. Today we werent behind him. We didnt play good defence. It was somewhat of an embarrassment." Washington increased its advantage to 4-0 in the sixth when Kevin Frandsen opened with a single, moved to second base on a sacrifice bunt by Roark, and scored on a single to left by Denard Span. Frandsen was starting in left field for Bryce Harper, who was out of the lineup with a jammed thumb. Notes: X-rays on the jammed thumb of Harper were negative, according to manager Matt Williams, who said that Harper was undergoing an MRI after the game. Williams said that Harper was available to pinch-hit. ... The Nationals had their second successful replay challenge in three games as Werth was ruled safe at second base, taking two bases on a booted ground ball. ... Padres outfielder Seth Smith was out of the lineup for the second straight day and will remain day-to-day after suffering a strained groin Thursday night against the Nationals. He was scheduled to take cuts in the batting cage on Saturday and for light jogging on Sunday. ... Washington right-hander Taylor Jordan (0-3, 6.23 ERA) will face San Diego right-hander Ian Kennedy (1-3, 3.60) on Sunday. Wilson Ramos Jersey .

Matt Moore Rays Jersey . -- The Kelowna Rockets earned their 16th straight win with a 7-2 rout of the Portland Winterhawks in Western Hockey League action Thursday.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Bernardo Anor scored twice after Marco Di Vaio had given Montreal the lead and the Columbus Crew ended a seven-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory against the Impact on Saturday. Anor had not scored since getting his first two goals of the season vs. Philadelphia on March 22 but struck with laser precision from distance in the 56th and 75th minutes. Montreal (3-10-5) lost its third straight and Impact coach Frank Klopas said it literally was a case of his players not stepping up. Both Anor goals came from outside the penalty after he found time and space. "I think we could have stepped on him a little bit quicker and we didnt," Klopas said. Columbus goalkeeper Steve Clark made five saves and was spectacular in shutting down the Impact after Di Vaios goal in the 35th minute. Clark kept the match level at 1-1 in the 62nd minute with a diving stop of Felipe Martins then followed two minutes later with rapid-fire denials of Di Vaio and a second-chance effort from Andres Romero that brought the sellout crowd of 21,112 in Crew Stadium to their feet. Moments after Columbus (5-8-7) forward Aaron Schoenfeld sent a glancing header off the right post, Clark lunged left to his left for another save on Romero in the 69th minute. "(Anor) scored two fantastic goals but Steve was our man of the match," Columbus coach Gregg Berhalter said. The Impact felt the Crew were ripe for the taking because Columbus was 0-3-4 in its previous seven matches and coming off a loss to Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday while Montreal was idle. "Its games like this you feel youve got to get something out of it," Klopas said. Instead, the Impact fell too 0-6-3 on the road with another away match Thursday at Real Salt Lake.dddddddddddd. "Weve got to get results," said Montreal captain Patrice Bernier. "Theres a short, short window left for us to believe that something can be done. After that, you start thinking maybe next year." Klopas gave Ohio native Evan Bush his first MLS start of the season and third of his MLS career over Troy Perkins. "There are moments in the season when one guys not in the best form and the other guy is," Klopas said. "You have to reward the guy who is." Montreal started well in front of Bush as Di Vaio continued his hot stretch with his fourth goal of the season and third in the past four games. The Impact took advantage of a turnover by defender Michael Parkhurst, who prior to the match was named to the MLS All-Star team that will face Bayern Munich on Aug. 6 in Portland, Ore. Justin Mapp plucked the ball from his feet and fed Di Vaio on the right wing. Di Vaio did the rest from there, faking Costa Rican World Cup defender Giancarlo Gonzalez then driving the ball past Clark from just inside the box. It was the sixth time in 10 home games that the Crew conceded the first goal. Montreals Jack McInerney missed an open look that would have made it 2-0 in the 54th minute and Anor made the Impact pay with his strike from the top of the arc two minutes later and a screaming blast from 25 yards for the victory. "Thats the first time this season that I can say Im at a loss of words," Montreal defender Heath Pearce said. "Of course it feels like since the very first game of the season weve been swimming against the current."
