PHOENIX -- Tony Campana was the unlikely hero and Brad Ziegler gained a measure of redemption, even if he didnt look at it that way. Troy Tulowitzki Replica Jersey . The light-hitting Campana singled home Martin Prado from third base with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. Ziegler (3-1), who gave up the deciding grand slam in Tuesday nights 7-5 Milwaukee victory, retired all four batters he faced, three by strikeout, to get the victory. In the ninth, Prado doubled with one out to deep left centre off Brandon Kintzler (1-3), advanced to third on David Peraltas groundout, then scored when Campana slapped one up the middle. Campanas first career walk-off hit raised his batting average to a whopping .150. "It was cool. I dont think Ive ever done it in the minor leagues, either," he said. "If Im here, Im happy." Campana made the big league club out of spring training but, after going 1 for 30 at the plate, was sent down to Triple-A Reno on May 1. He was called back up last Friday. Campana may not hit well but he is fast. "Actually it couldnt have worked out better to have him up there," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said, "just because we had a guy on third base and just his wheels, it can pressure them, makes them come in and cheat in. He put the bat on the ball." Ziegler said he wasnt thinking about retribution when he came out of the bullpen. "I dont know what the TV broadcasters got going. Theyre probably bringing up yesterday a lot," he said, "but were not. Were just watching the game flow. With nine righties in the (Brewers) lineup, I knew there was a good chance Id pitch." Khris Davis hit a three-run homer for the Brewers runs. Arizonas Chris Owings, hit below the back of the head by a pitch from Kyle Lohse on Tuesday night, was a home run shy of the cycle. He was robbed of a fourth hit by a diving stop by first baseman Mark Reynolds. Jonathan Lucroys grand slam on Tuesday came one pitch after reliever Evan Marshall hit Ryan Braun with a pitch and was ejected. Wednesdays game had no such drama. "We didnt do a lot offensively," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "We just had the one inning with Davis hitting a three-run homer. Besides that, we didnt swing the bats very well" Starters Wade Miley of Arizona and Matt Garza of Milwaukee left without a decision after 7 2-3 innings. Miley gave up three runs and five hits, striking out eight with no walks. Garza allowed three runs -- two earned -- and seven hits. He struck out four without a walk. Miley retired 10 straight, striking out Ricky Weeks and Braun to start the eighth, but walked Lucroy and Carlos Gomez. That ended Mileys night. Ziegler came in and fanned Aramis Ramirez. Garza retired 15 of 16 before Owings one-out double in the eighth. Paul Goldschmidts groundout moved Owings to third, but Brewers setup man Will Smith came on to strike out Miguel Montero and end the threat. Miley had fanned four straight when Lucroy led off the fourth with a single. Gomez, back after sitting out two games with a sore hamstring, moved Lucroy to third with a single, extending his hitting streak to 14 games, matching his career-best. Arizona got two in the Brewers sloppy first inning, one unearned. Gerardo Parra tripled down the right field line, then Owings singled him home. Goldschmidt followed with a grounder to the second baseman Weeks, whose errant soft toss to shortstop Jean Segura covering second left both runners safe. Montero followed with a grounder to short for what looked to be an inning-ending double play. Segura threw to Weeks for the force at second, but the throw to first bounced in the dirt and the runner was safe, allowing the second run to score. In the third, Owings tripled off the centre field wall and scored when Goldschmidt singled for his 52nd RBI. The Diamondbacks will try to salvage a split of the four-game series Thursday. NOTES: Gibson says his scathing comments on Brauns PED use in 2011 season had nothing to do with Braun getting plunked Tuesday night. ... In the series finale on Thursday, Milwaukee will start Yovani Gallardo (4-4, 3.51 ERA) and Arizona goes with Chase Anderson (5-1, 3.23). Kevin Pillar Jersey .

Trade rumours continue to swirl around the Team USA netminder and Wednesday night could be the final time the East Lansing, Michigan native suits up as a Sabre in front the of the First Niagara Center faithful. Jose Bautista Navy Jersey .ca sat down with two Blue Jays veterans to get their thoughts on the August collapse.NEW YORK -- Carmelo Anthony let it fly from halfcourt, and when it went in, he had proof of what was already obvious. "When I made the shot at the half, I told myself the zone was there," Anthony said. Soon, he had passed Kevin Durant. Next was Bernard King, and finally Kobe Bryant. Three records, all shot down in one scintillating performance. Anthony scored a career-high 62 points to break the franchise and current Madison Square Garden marks, and the New York Knicks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 125-96 on Friday night to stop a five-game losing streak. Anthony made 23 of 35 shots, one when he leapt from centre court to beat the halftime buzzer, and even added 13 rebounds in the NBAs highest-scoring performance this season. Anthony had 56 after three quarters, bettering Durants previous season high of 54, and stayed in for the first few minutes of the fourth to break Kings Knicks record of 60 set in 1984 and Bryants arena record of 61 set five years ago. "I made history tonight, with the performance, but just to be a part of that group of people, like I said, theres only a small group of people that knows what that zone feels like and tonight I was one of them," Anthony said. It was easily the highlight of the season for Anthony, on pace to miss the playoffs for the first time in his career and facing frequent questions about his future with the team as he heads into free agency this summer. That was all on hold for one night, the focus simply on Anthonys amazing scoring. He easily passed his previous career best of 50 points and possibly couldve even passed 70 or more had the game been close. Instead, he checked out for good after breaking the records when he banked in a short jumper with 7:24 to play. "Ive seen him score a lot of points, but that was some performance right there," said J.R. Smith, who was also a teammate of Anthonys in Denver. Smith noticed a different focus from Anthony before the game, a seriousness replacing the usual laughter. Perhaps some of it was some added pregame motivation after the team watched a video featuring Muhammad Ali, one of Anthonys favourite athletes. With the Knicks desperately thin in the frontcourt after losing Andrea Bargnani on top of the injuries to Amare Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin, Anthony simply took on more of the scoring load as New York won for the first time on its eight-game homestand after dropping the first three. King, elected to the Hall of Fame last year, said he was proud of Anthony, who he considers one of the best players iin the game. Troy Tulowitzki Youth Jersey. "If anyone was to break my Knicks record that I have held for so long, Im absolutely delighted that it was Carmelo," King said through the teams public relations department. Al Jefferson had 25 points and nine rebounds for the Bobcats, snapping his streak of four straight 20-10 games. Charlotte had won two in a row, holding division leaders Toronto and the Los Angeles Clippers to an average of 93 points. But the Knicks, who had lost to the Bobcats 10 days ago to start their current skid, shot 56 per cent. So what happened to Charlottes defence? "Melo. Enough said," Jefferson said. Fans chanted "Melo! Melo!" when the Knicks had the ball in the second half, as if they were calling a play. That was replaced by "We Want Melo! We want Melo!" after he checked out. He made 20 of his first 26 shots against what had been a good defensive team, but there was no defence for the zone Anthony was in. "When hes in one of those zones, aint nothing nobody can do about it," Jefferson added. Last seasons scoring champion had eight points in the first 2 1/2 minutes, went 8 of 10 in the first quarter and had 20 points as the Knicks led 30-21. He skipped his usual break and kept playing deep into the second quarter before finally taking a seat with 4:34 left, shortly after missing an open jumper. He returned with 2 1/2 minutes left to finish the half in style, throwing in a buzzer beater from just inside halfcourt to cap his 15-of-21 half and make it 67-46, Stoudemire laughing hysterically on the bench in his brown suit jacket and the rest of the players leaping in celebration. "Just to see everybody smiling once again, thats what I was more excited to see," Anthony said. "Guys on the bench smiling, high-fiving, having fun once again, thats the only thing I care about." Turned out Anthony was just getting started. He made his first five shots in the second half and the Bobcats would eventually grow frustrated, picking up two technical fouls on one play after Anthonys 3-pointer late in the third. He made both free throws, part of his 10-for-10 showing at the line, and said he tried to check himself out earlier but his teammates wouldnt allow it. Notes: Kemba Walker, who had 25 points in all three previous matchups against the Knicks, sat out his third game in a row with a sprained left ankle. ... The Knicks said Bargnani, who tore the ulner collateral ligament in his left elbow, wont require surgery and will instead just need rest and treatment. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys ' ' '
