SAN DIEGO -- One pitcher is looking forward to October. Black Red White Stephen Curry 2 High Mens . The other pitcher has very few starts remaining this season.Thats the pitching matchup Tuesday night as the Padres host the Cubs for the second of three games at Petco Park ... or what Cubs fans call Wrigley Field West.Starting for the Cubs will be reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta, whose 15-5 record and 2.75 earned run average in 24 starts puts him in the running for a repeat. But Arrieta says that is not his focus heading into the stretch.Weve done very well, Arrieta said recently. But everyone knows its about what happens from here on out.Starting for the Padres Tuesday night will be left-hander Christian Friedrich, who will be making the 18th start of a season that is winding down.Yes, the Padres still have almost six weeks to go until the finish line. But they will be shutting Friedrich down any start now.Hes already worked twice as many innings this season in a different role than he worked last year, Padres manager Andy Green said recently. We like him. Were going to protect him.Friedrich, 29, has a 4-9 record with a 4.69 ERA in 17 starts for the Padres since being promoted from Triple-A El Paso on May 13. He has worked 94 innings. He also worked 18 innings in the minors before joining the Padres. Last season, working out of the Colorado Rockies bullpen, Friedrich worked 58 1/3 innings in 68 appearances.At the moment, Friedrich is a member of a six-man rotation. But Green has said the Padres will likely return to a five-man rotation with two days off in a span of five days starting Thursday.The sixth man out in all likelihood will be Friedrich.I feel good, said Friedrich, but I know the thinking.As for Arrieta, hes on full throttle.But he hasnt had great luck in his two previous starts at Petco Park. Arrieta is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA in the Padres home, although he hasnt pitched there since 2014. Arrieta is 9-2 on the road this season with a 3.29 ERA in 12 starts.He is also coming off one of his weaker starts. Against the Brewers on Aug. 18, Arrieta issued a career-high seven walks and gave up and allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings. He still collected his 15th win in the Cubs 9-6 victory.Arrietas 2.75 ERA ranks fifth in the National League, just ahead of Jon Lesters 2.81 mark after Monday night.Arrietta leads the major leagues with a .186 opponents batting average and figures to be facing five, and possibly six, left-handed hitters Tuesday night, including switch-hitters Yangervis Solarte and Luis Sardinas on the left side of the Padres infield. Recently, the Padres have been using the left-handed Brett Wallace at first in some games against right-handed pitchers with first baseman Wil Myers moving to right.Sardinas, who was promoted from Triple-A El Paso Monday, will be making his first start at shortstop for the Padres and is expected to make the majority of the starts at short for the rest of the season as the Padres cut back on the starts make by former Chicago White Sox Alexei Ramirez. Mens UA Stephen Curry 3 Father to Son Mid Under Armour Shoes Purple Light . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. Curry 2.5 Australia . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. http:///...under-armour-ua.html .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. DALLAS -- The Philadelphia Flyers arent getting caught up in their current win streak.Philadelphia (19-10-3) has won 10 straight games for the third time in franchise history and is looking extend the hot streak against the Dallas Stars (12-14-6) on Saturday at American Airlines Center.While many teams are superstitious and avoid talking about winning streaks, the Flyers are embracing it and openly talking about a mark they hope to push to 11 games.Ive never been part of anything like that, its been absolutely amazing, Flyers right wing Jakub Voracek said. Youve got to enjoy it while it lasts ... it shows you how good we play this season, enjoy it.The Flyers last won 10 straight games in 1985.Philadelphia has been the hottest team in the league for a month and special teams have been a key factor. It is second in the NHL on the power play and converting at 23.5 percent.The Flyers scored on three of their four power plays against the Stars on Dec 10. Claude Giroux leads the NHL with 15 power-play points. Wayne Simmonds is second in the league with 14 power-play points and leads the NHL with eight goals with the man advantage.Weve all played together for a long time, Simmonds said. Its kind of like second nature with the puck and knowing where all your options are. We often have two to four options per guy, no matter who has the puck. I think thats the key for us and makes it a lot easier.The Stars are on the other end of the spectrum and trying to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday. After entering the season as one of the trendy picks to reach the Stanley Cup Finals, the Stars are outside of the playoff picture after 32 games and the offense hasnt been firing on a consistent basis. Ua Speedform Studiolux Shoe. .Its been particularly frustrating on the power play, where the Stars had looks but couldnt convert on five opportunities against the Rangers.We need results now, Stars forward Jason Spezza said. Id much rather have a an ugly 2-for-5 (on the power play) than a pretty 0-for-5.Dallas will be without center Cody Eakin, who was suspended four games by the NHL Player for charging Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.With Eakin out, Spezza will move back to his traditional role of center, while Curtis McKenzie will be back in the lineup after missing back-to-back games with an upper-body injury.McKenzie had four points in his past five games before he sustained the injury.It was a bit frustrating with how I had been playing, McKenzie said. I feel good (today). I was able to keep skating with the injury, so it wont be that big of an adjustment.The Stars are expected to give Antti Niemi another start in goal after he had a strong start against the Rangers. Niemi is 6-2-1 at American Airlines Center this season and has a 1.89 goals-against average and .940 save percentage.Niemi will likely go up against Steve Mason in the Philadelphia goal. Mason has won his last eight starts and rebounded from a tough start to the season, where he once had a 5-8-3 record. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap JerseysCheap Jerseys ' ' '
