CHICAGO -- Tyson Ross would have liked to have had better command when he faced what

CHICAGO -- Tyson Ross would have liked to have had better command when he faced what has been a tough Chicago White Sox lineup Saturday. Reggie Sanders Jersey . Yet the San Diego Padres right hander had no trouble handcuffing a White Sox offence that is suddenly scuffling. Ross limited the White Sox to two runs -- one earned -- on five hits in six innings, and Huston Street remained perfect in 17 save chances this season the Padres 4-2 victory. Will Venable had a season-high four hits and drove in two runs to help San Diego improve to 20-4 this season when scoring four or more runs. "It was a battle today," Ross said. "The guys gave me a lead early. It wasnt very comfortable though. They were in striking distance the whole time. Theyre a good hitting team. "Anytime you can find a way to get outs when you dont have your best stuff, thats what pitchings all about." Admittedly not having the sharpest control of his pitches against the White Sox, Ross -- aided by a defence that turned double plays in the second and third innings -- helped the Padres inch closer to .500. They are 19-1 this season when leading after the sixth inning. Ross improved to 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA in his last five starts. "Tyson battled," Padres manager Bud Black said. "It was a workmanlike game for Tyson. Labored a little bit, but overall, a lot of positives. He made some pitches when he needed to." In the third series between the two teams -- and the first since 2005 -- the Padres had the leadoff hitter reach base in seven of the nine innings. The White Sox managed only one base runner in the final four innings. White Sox starting pitcher Andre Rienzo (4-2) struggled to keep the Padres off base and consistently ran into trouble. Rienzo lasted only 3 1-3 innings, surrendering three runs on seven hits. Twice the White Sox cut the Padres lead to one run, but they could never pull closer. Chicago has 23 strikeouts in the past two games against the Padres. "Were just not getting that hit, the hit that gets you over the hump," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "I think all teams go through it for a period and the last couple of days thats been us. We havent been able to get the hit that gets you over the hump. Whenever that happens, it looks boring; it looks like theyre not trying. But theyre grinding it out." Dayan Viciedos two-out double to right-centre field scored Adam Eaton, who reached on an error by shortstop Everth Cabrera to start the fifth, to cut the Padres lead to 3-2. San Diego answered in the top of the sixth, extending its lead, 4-2. Alexi Amaristas sacrifice fly scored Venable, who reached on a double and advanced on a sacrifice bunt. Paul Konerkos single in the second snapped an 0 for 12 stretch and put runners on the corners for the White Sox after Alexei Ramirez led off the inning with a single. The White Sox cut San Diegos lead to 2-1 on the next play, though Alejandro De Azas double play ball, which scored Ramirez, killed Chicagos rally. San Diego had chances to put Chicago away. Despite loading the bases with nobody out against Rienzo, the Padres only managed to score one run in the third. Center fielder Eaton delivered a perfect throw home on Venables RBI single to nail Carlos Quentin at the plate, keeping San Diegos lead to 3-1. "I think were seeing a little bit of an uptick in our offence," Black said. "Were seeing some averages climb." The Padres took a 2-0 lead in the second scoring on RBI doubles from Venable and Rene Rivera. Padres centre fielder Cameron Maybin left the game with right calf tightness after reaching second base on a fielders choice in the Padres two-run second inning. A diving catch by right fielder Chris Denorfia to end the fourth on Tyler Flowers line drive saved at least one Chicago run from scoring, stranding runners on first and second to maintain a 3-1 Padres lead. NOTES: White Sox 1B Jose Abreu took approximately 10 at-bats during a hitting simulation before Saturdays game. Abreu was hit above his left elbow but finished the simulation. Abreu (osterior tibia tendonitis in his left ankle) will go through another simulation game Sunday. He can be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Monday. "(Abreu) will have to take pitches and I think thats going to be the biggest thing is just reaction-wise," manager Robin Ventura said. "Him seeing pitches and not having send him out on a rehab assignment." ... DH Konerko (back) returned to the White Soxs lineup Saturday after missing the last two games. ... Black decided to give struggling 2B Jedd Gyorko the day off, inserting Amarista in the lineup. Gyorko is 3 for 17 on San Diegos road trip and is batting .169 this season. "Youve got to use your roster and I think today is a good day to give Jedd off from a start," Black said. "Hes been going at it hard and weve been playing him a lot. Jedd will be in there tomorrow." Adam Duvall Jersey . -- Andrew Wiggins is from Canada, Wayne Selden from Massachusetts and Joel Embiid from the African nation of Cameroon. Pete Rose Jersey . "Well over 50 (per cent)," coach Claude Noel said Tuesday after practice, where the Jets were looking at ways to cut down the scoring chances theyve been giving away. . Groves signed with Cleveland as an unrestricted free agent last year after a season with Arizona. He was in the linebacker rotation and had a sack in the season opener against Miami.RENTON, Wash. -- Apparently Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman got all their talking about one another out of the way during the off-season. On Thursday, neither had a disparaging word to say about the other despite their much-publicized jawing session on Twitter earlier this year. So much for any good trash talk before the Buccaneers face the Seahawks, the first time the elite cornerbacks have played against each other. While they are widely regarded as two of the top cornerbacks in the NFL, good luck getting a unified opinion on which is better. Especially when both are watching what they say heading into Sundays game. "I havent really studied film on him to really make an assumption on him being the top guy," Revis said. "He can play. I love his game. He makes plays. I like how he presses. Hes a great corner in this league." Thats a far different tone than the one both Revis and Sherman took in February, which led to a short, but memorable Twitter argument about who was better. Revis fired the first shot, "I never seen a man before run his mouth so much like girl. This dude just steady putting my name in his mouth to get notoriety (at)r--sherman25," then brought up Roddy Whites 47-yard TD reception for Atlanta against Sherman and the Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs. Sherman responded about an hour later, relying on statistics to make a point: "Got off my flight to this hilarious convo. So I have 8 picks 3 ff and a sack. My season stats looking like Revis career stats." Thats when the words appeared to get more personal. Revis pointed out Shermans lower number of followers and ended his tweet with, "Sit down young pup & wait your turn." Sherman responded directly to Revis, "one season u will get 8 picks.... But it wont happen anytime soon... I did it in my 2nd season... So u have something to chase." That could have ended the tussle, but Sherman continued. "For the QB not throwing his way argument. In his 2nd year they were throwing his way. I still doubled his picks," Sherman wrote. Finally Revis ended the converrsation with four successive tweets saying Shermans responses were his way of getting attention and drawing followers. Brandon Finnegan Jersey. "Hey everyone (at)rsherman--25 wants to be a lockdown corner. He wants to be in the talks of a lockdown corner. So follow him so he can become 1!" Revis wrote. Sherman said Thursday hes never met Revis in person. Asked if he had any regrets about the Twitter argument, Sherman stood behind what he said then threw a little praise in the direction of Revis. "No I dont have any regrets about anything. Hes a good player and hes having a good year," Sherman said. "I dont think hes very happy with the way theyre using him in the scheme making him play a lot of Cover 2 and making him play off. I think hes much, much better when hes man-to-man. I think any corner that has any pride about himself wants to be in man-to-man situations and want to do his job. Cant help how youre being used." From a numbers perspective, Sherman is having the better season. Hes tied for the league lead with four interceptions and has eight passes defenced. According to STATS Inc., Sherman has been targeted 37 times and given up 19 completions. Revis is being targeted less, but percentage wise has allowed more completions. Revis has been targeted 30 times, allowing 16 receptions with one interception and six passes defenced. The numbers are similar and so is the talent. "Hes a great player. Hes one of the best in the NFL but Ive been going against, in my opinion, two of the best cornerbacks all season every day in practice," Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate said. "So I think if I handle my business, do my job right, hes just going to be a guy. Im excited for the challenge. Have tons of respect and its going to be fun to go against one of the best in the league and maybe even a Hall of Famer." Notes: Seattle coach Pete Carroll told Sirius XM NFL Radio on Thursday that WR Percy Harvin will not play against the Buccaneers. "Hes getting close but not close enough," Carroll said. Carroll does not speak with local media on Thursdays. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
