run over a three-minute stretch of the first

SAN DIEGO -- Anthony Rizzo was back in San Diego, so he hit the beach. Rizzo hit a go-ahead, two-run home run into the sandy play area beyond the fence in right-centre at Petco Park against his old team and the Chicago Cubs beat the punchless San Diego Padres 5-1 Thursday night. Rizzos shot helped back Jake Arrieta, who pitched six strong innings. The left-handed Rizzo put the Cubs ahead 2-1 in the fourth with a 417-foot homer to centre on a 3-1 fastball from lefty Eric Stults. It was his eighth. "If you hit a ball well, if you get it, youre going to get it here," said Rizzo, who made his big league debut with San Diego in 2011. "But its nice not having to take batting practice here every day." Rizzo hit just .141 with one homer and nine RBIs in two stints with the Padres in 2011 before being traded to the Cubs in the deal that sent right-hander Andrew Cashner to San Diego. Rizzo is hitting .275 this season. "That ball went to the beach," said Cubs first-year manager Rick Renteria, who spent the past six seasons on San Diegos coaching staff. Stults said Rizzo homered on a fastball down the middle. "If I execute the pitch down and away, the worse thing is he probably hits a single," Stults said. "But it was 3-1, nobody out, and I didnt want to put him on base." Rizzo also had a double. "He had some good at-bats," Renteria said. "His approach is pretty solid." Arrieta (1-0) held San Diego to one run and four hits, struck out seven and walked one. He was activated May 3 after beginning the season on the disabled list with tightness in his right shoulder. He lowered his ERA to 2.33. Carlos Villanueva pitched the final three innings for his first save this season. "Jake did a nice job," Renteria said. "He pushed himself through six and allowed us to get to Villa and he did the rest." San Diego lost its fourth straight game. It was the 15th time in 48 games the Padres scored one or no runs. The Padres were shut out for the eighth time -- most in the majors -- on Wednesday night, losing 2-0 to Minnesota. Padres bench coach Dave Roberts filled in for manager Bud Black, who was at his daughters college graduation. "It was good to see Rick on the other side," Roberts said. "He seemed in good spirits. Just a year ago, we were together. We shared the same locker room. But at 7:10 we were ready to win a baseball game." Junior Lake was aboard on a bunt single down the third-base line, the Cubs first hit of the night off Stults. The Cubs chased Stults in the fifth with three runs and four hits. Nate Schierholtz hit a leadoff double and scored on Darwin Barneys single to centre. Arrieta sacrificed Barney, who scored on Emilio Bonifacios single to right. Lake doubled over centre fielder Cameron Maybins head to bring in Bonifacio. San Diegos only run came on Seth Smiths two-out homer to right in the first, his team-leading sixth. Stults (2-5) gave up five runs and six hits in 4 2-3 innings, struck out four and walked none. The Padres wore replica uniforms from 1984, when they beat the Cubs in the NL championship series to reach the World Series for the first time. NOTES: The four-game series continues Friday night when Cubs RHP Edwin Jackson (3-3, 3.98) faces Padres RHP Tim Stauffer (1-0, 2.41), who will be making his first start of the season. ... Padres LHP Robbie Erlin, who had been scheduled to start Friday night, went on the 15-day disabled list with a sore left elbow, retroactive to Sunday. He is 3-4 with a 4.53 ERA in nine appearances, including eight starts. To take his spot on the roster, the Padres selected RHP Blaine Boyer from Triple-A El Paso. Jesus Gamez Atletico Madrid Jersey .

After not scoring 40 points in the opening quarter in the last five seasons, the Rockets have done it five times this season and twice in the last three games. Terrence Jones had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and the Rockets opened a big early lead and beat the Detroit Pistons 118-110 on Saturday night for their third win in four games. Jones finished 10 of 15 from the floor as Houston shot 50 per cent for the game, including 61 per cent in the first half. Houston scored 41 points in the first quarter and finished 11 of 33 from behind the arc. "We got a big halftime lead and didnt play well in the second half," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. "We came out and really moved the ball. We had it going up and down and just did a nice job of doing what weve been talking about doing, which is attacking early, getting inside to Dwight (Howard) and making some nice passes." James Harden added 20 points and 12 assists, Patrick Beverley had 19 points and Howard chipped in 17 points and eight rebounds. Reserve Omri Casspi scored 16 points and Jordan Hamilton had 13. While saying it was an important win before the Rockets begin a stretch against some of the top teams in the NBA on Tuesday against Miami, Howard did not like the way Houston came out in the second half. "I thought we should have really put the foot on the gas," Howard said. "We didnt. We allowed them to get back into the game, and that is not what we need to do if we want to be a championship team." Rodney Stuckey had 23 points on 10 of 17 shooting off the bench, and Josh Smith added 21 points for the Pistons, who dropped their fourth straight and seventh in eight games. Andre Drummond had 16 points and 17 rebounds, Greg Monroe had 10 points and 14 rebounds, and Brandon Jennings chipped in 11 points and eight assists for Detroit, which shot 45 per cent from the field. "In the first half, we didnt play with the energy, enthusiasm or desire you have to play at to play against any NBA team, let alone a high-level team like Houston," Detroit interim coach John Loyer said. "We came in here, and I told our guys we played harder in practice than the first 24 minutes.dddddddddddd We had more juice, energy running a three-man weave than we did in the first half. There are two halves to a game, and fortunately, we played a much better second half." Detroit fell four games out of the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Drummond said the Pistons have enough time to make the playoffs. "We have enough time to do anything, and were four games out, so it comes to what we do as a team," Drummond said. "It cant be one or two people. We have to be as a collective group to want to buckle down and try to win games." Trailing 102-84 with 10:33 remaining, Detroit outscored the Rockets 13-5 over the next 4:22 to cut the lead to 10 on Smiths free throws, but Beverley nailed back-to-back 3-pointers to push the lead back to 16 with four minutes remaining. The Pistons closed within seven once more with a 10-1 run, capped by consecutive layups by Stuckey, but got no closer. "I think guys stopped playing a little bit because of the lead," Jones said. "We just tried to make sure that we got back to it on the defensive end to make sure we got the win. I think we did that late in the fourth." The Rockets, who never trailed, moved to 40-19. Only the 1993-94 team that started 40-15 got to 40 wins faster. Houston used a 16-2 run over a three-minute stretch of the first quarter to open a 23-6 lead on Howards two free throws 5 minutes into the game. "We did a good job of coming out with some aggression and getting some defensive stops and getting out in transition," Harden said. Houston expanded its lead to 58-33 on Howards free throw with 4:58 remaining in the first half. The Rockets led 69-46 at the break. NOTES: Houston forward Chandler Parsons missed the game with an illness. . Rockets centre Greg Smith underwent an exploratory arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday to repair a medial meniscus tear and to examine changes to ligament structures in his right knee.
