CHICAGO - If it was a sneak preview of the future at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night, then Chicago Cubs fans cant wait for the sequel. Joey Gallo Jersey . Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Rizzo hit two home runs and 24-year-old Kyle Hendricks pitched seven innings for his first major league victory, leading the Cubs to a 6-0 victory over the San Diego Padres that snapped their five-game losing streak. And rookie Arimendy Alcantara hit the hardest ball of the night, a blast over the bleachers in right field that landed on Sheffield Avenue. "I just try to hit the ball," the 22-year-old Alcantara said. "If it goes far, that is OK." "Theyre not looking like theyre too bothered by being at the major league level," manager Rick Renteria noticed. "Theyre just playing the game, simplifying it between the lines." Rizzo staked Hendricks to a 2-0 lead in the third inning with a solo homer. Four innings later, Alcantara and Rizzo hit back-to-back homers off Blaine Boyer for a 5-0 lead. Rizzo became the first National League player to reach 25 homers this season, his career high. He finished with 23 homers in 160 games last season. "Im not stronger than I was last year, I dont think," said Rizzo, who credited a more disciplined approach for his recent power surge. Recalled from Triple-A Iowa earlier Tuesday, Hendricks (1-0) made short work of an anemic Padres lineup that entered the game with a total of 29 home runs and 103 RBIs. In his second start of the season, the right-hander allowed five hits and threw only 83 pitches, two that were clocked faster than 88 mph. He walked three and struck out five. "Best day of my life," Hendricks called it. "Awesome." The Padres had two runners on base in the first, third and fifth innings, but the Cubs turned two of their season-high four double plays to erase the last two threats. In the process, Hendricks continued to erase doubts that he could finesse his way to the next level. "You wonder that when you come up," said Hendricks, whose father John was in attendance. "Thats definitely the hardest thing in baseball — to trust your stuff. But thats what you have to fall back on also." Eric Stults (3-12) lasted only five innings in the muggy conditions and took the loss, the ninth in his last 10 decisions. He gave up three runs and six hits and walked three. "Yeah, we get spoiled by the weather in San Diego," Stults said. "So tonight definitely the humidity was something I wasnt used to. Its hard to catch your breath. The way (Hendricks) threw, he had some quick innings. It felt like I was sitting down and getting right back up." NOTES: San Diego rookie 1B Jake Goebbert played his first major league game at Wrigley Field, less than 10 miles from Northwestern, where he was a two-sport star. His family owns a pumpkin patch northwest of Chicago. ... San Diego RHP Odrisamer Despaigne had his next start pushed back one day to Saturday as a precautionary measure. In his last assignment on Sunday, the rookie took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. ... Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (wrist), SS Everth Cabrera (hamstring) and 2B Jedd Gyorko (foot) continued to make progress, but there was no timetable for their returns. ... Chicago LHP Tsuyoshi Wada will be activated and start the second game of the series on Wednesday night. He is expected to take the place of 3B Mike Olt on the roster. ... General manager Jed Hoyer indicated that Alcantara will continue play regularly down the stretch. Veteran 2B Darwin Barney was designated for assignment before the game. ... The Cubs will play 22 of their next 32 games at home, where their 43 games are the fewest of any major league team to date. Ivan Rodriguez Jersey . -- Augusta James of Bath, Ont. Elvis Andrus Jersey . - The Seattle Sounders busy off-season continues with the team acquiring defender Chad Marshall from the Columbus Crew in exchange for a 2015 third-round pick and allocation money. http://www.rangersapparelsshop.com/derek-holland-jersey-c-34/ . The freestyle skier from Calgary finished sixth in the qualification round with a total of 82.00 points. Groenewoud won a silver medal at the X Games last month, just over five weeks after undergoing double knee surgery.WASHINGTON - Down by two to the Washington Wizards in overtime, with a chance to break a three-game losing streak, the depleted Indiana Pacers called timeout and opted to set up a 3-point attempt.The flaw in the plan: 7-foot-2 centre Roy Hibbert ended up taking it.Go for the win, Indiana coach Frank Vogel said, doesnt mean Roy go for the win.Hibberts first 3-point shot of the season was off the mark, and Chris Copeland couldnt convert the offensive rebound as time expired, giving the Wizards a 96-94 win Wednesday night and the Pacers their worst five-game start since the 1990s.Hibbert was supposed to set a screen to free Copeland in the corner, but the Wizards defended the play well.I saw the ball come to me, so I had to shoot it, said Hibbert, who is 6 for 21 from 3-point range in his career. Its not my forte.John Wall had seven of his 31 points in overtime for the Wizards, who blew a 12-point, second-half lead before winning their fourth straight to move three games above .500, a mark they didnt reach until March 1 last season. They also gained a tiny measure of revenge from last seasons playoffs, when Washington lost in six games to Indiana in the Eastern Conference semifinals.But that was a different Pacers team. This one is missing Paul George, George Hill, C.J. Watson, David West and now Rodney Stuckey due to injury and has lost four straight. The Pacers 1-4 record is their worst start since 1996, and last season they didnt lose their fourth game until Dec. 16.Donald Sloan led Wednesdays effort with 31 points — nearly double his previous career high. Copeland added 19 points and a career-high 12 rebounds, and Solomon Hill scored a career-best 14 points.Theyre trying to prove while these guys are hurt that they belong, Washington forward Drew Gooden said. And I think they did that tonight.Yet Indianas C.J. Miles was just 2 for 13 ffrom the field, and Hibbert — one of the last seasons linchpins who is actually healthy — went 0 for 7. Jurickson Profar Jersey. I cant wait until everybody gets healthy, Hibbert said.The Wizards shot only 37 per cent but made 21 of 23 free throws and had a 23-10 edge in fast-break points. They led by 12 in the third quarter, but the Pacers came back in part by dominating on the glass, grabbing 14 offensive rebounds for the game.We throw the first punch. ... We built that lead, Wizards centre Marcin Gortat said. We relaxed again too much.___TIP-INSPacers: Stuckey will miss at least three games after aggravating a strained tendon in his left foot. Already without George (broken leg), Hill (bruised knee), Watson (bruised foot) and West (sprained ankle), Indiana received a hardship exception to sign Israeli G Gal Mekel. ... Sloans previous career high was 16 in last weeks season-opening win over the Philadelphia 76ers.Wizards: Paul Pierce finally scored a field goal at home. He was 0 for 3 from the field when he was ejected for picking up two technical fouls just before halftime in the home opener on Saturday, and was 0 for 3 again on Wednesday before hitting a 20-foot step-back jumper, again just before halftime. Pierce otherwise struggled, shooting 3 for 15 and scoring 11 points, and he missed a jumper that would have won the game in regulation.HUSTLE, HUSTLEThe rebounding discrepancy wasnt the only thing that concerned Washington coach Randy Wittman.The 50-50 balls, we got none, Wittman said. I just thought they beat us on the hustle points there.HUMBLED HOYASPlaying in their college arena, former Georgetown standouts Hibbert and Washingtons Otto Porter (1 for 5) combined to go 1 for 12 from the field.UP NEXTPacers: Visit Boston on Friday.Wizards: Visit Toronto on Friday.___Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAP Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
