Wells was making his rookie from wxy1123's blog

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Brad Hawpe capped off San Diegos big rally with a two-run homer in the ninth inning, as the Padres came back from a six-run deficit to beat the Rockies, 9-7, in the second test of a three-game series. Adidas Originals Superstar Ireland . Ex-Rockie Hawpe went 3-for-5 with three runs scored for the Padres, who bounced back from a 12-7 loss in the opener of this series on Friday. Eric Patterson also drove in two runs. Aaron Harang lasted just 4 1/3 innings, allowing seven runs on nine hits. Mike Adams (2-0) tossed a scoreless eighth to pick up the win. Carlos Gonzalez and Todd Helton each hit solo homers for the Rockies, who have lost three of four. Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki each knocked in two runs in defeat. Jhoulys Chacin went six-plus frames in the start for Colorado, giving up five runs -- three earned -- on five hits. Huston Street (0-1) gave up the homer to Hawpe to take the loss. Its on us as a staff. We didnt make our pitches and execute down the stretch, Street said of the bullpen giving up the lead. Down 7-1, the Padres got back in the game with a four-run seventh. A pair of walks and a single loaded the bases with nobody out. Patterson then hit a grounder back to Chacin, who failed to field to the ball cleanly. His throw to first was way off the mark, and two runs scored on the play. Matt Lindstrom came in from the bullpen and gave up an RBI infield single to Chris Denorfia. Jason Bartlett hit a sacrifice fly two batters later to cut the gap to 7-5. San Diego added two more runs in the eighth to tie the game. Rafael Betancourt gave up consecutive singles to Hawpe and Cameron Maybin to put men on the corners, and Ryan Ludwick followed with a sacrifice fly. A balk by Betancourt put Maybin on second, and he crossed the plate on Pattersons base hit to center. Hawpe put the Padres in front in the ninth. With a man on first and two outs, Hawpe smacked Streets offering over the wall in right for a 9-7 lead. Heath Bell tossed a perfect home ninth for his 100th career save. Ive been thinking about that moment for several months now, Hawpe said about homering against his former team. It ranks up there as a good feeling for me as far as baseball goes. The Padres got on the board in the second. Hawpe and Maybin led off the frame with consecutive singles, and two batters later, Kyle Phillips hit an RBI single to center. Colorado failed to score with the bases loaded in the home second, but scored four times in the third. Dexter Fowler walked, moved to second on Jonathan Herreras bunt single and crossed the plate on Gonzalezs base hit. Tulowitzki followed with a two-run double to left-center field, but was thrown out while trying to stretch the hit into a triple. Helton then hit a solo homer to center for a 4-1 lead. Gonzalezs solo homer to right in the fourth gave the Rockies a four-run margin. Colorado tacked on two more runs in the fifth for a 7-1 lead. Helton walked and Seth Smith hit a ground-rule double to left to put men on second and third. Ty Wigginton followed with an RBI single. Chris Iannetta plated Smith with a sacrifice fly. Chacin retired 12 straight batters before giving up a one-out double to Bartlett in the sixth. But San Diego got to Chacin in the seventh. GAME NOTES:Colorado won 12 of its 18 matchups with the Padres last season...Padres reliever Luke Gregerson celebrated his 27th birthday on Saturday. Gregerson pitched a scoreless inning of relief...San Diego third baseman Chase Headley left the game in the fifth inning with an ankle injury...The Padres went 3- for-14 with runners in scoring position. http://www.stansmithireland.com/superstar-foundation-shoes-adidas.html .Bayern also had a Dutchman to thank, with Arjen Robbens 27th-minute strike enough for the defending champions to go provisionally 10 points clear after 13 games.Huntelaars brilliant chip in the ninth was followed by an easier finish in the 25th when he was left free. http://www.stansmithireland.com/cheap-air-max-90-ireland/air-max-90-white-and-black.html . The Jets are now 5-2 in shootouts on the season. The win snapped Calgarys six-game winless skid, and snapped the Jets four-game home winning streak. The Jets are now 0-2-1 in the second game of back to backs. After their four-game winning streak was snapped Sunday night in Minnesota, the Jets record sits at 10-10-3.The Rogers Centre was an incredible facility when it was built and then unveiled in June of 1989. But as the years have gone by, fans look on with envy at the state-of-the-art baseball-only facilities that have been constructed and wonder, why couldnt it have been us? Now comes word the Atlanta Braves are ready to leave Turner Field, their home since 1997, to move into a spanking new $672 million ediface in Cobb County in time for the 2017 season, although no official contract has been signed yet. The Braves owners couldnt come to a new lease agreement to stay at Turner Field so now, with the help of the good taxpayers, Cobb County will get a new 42,000-seat ballpark with all of the amenities. The Braves have only been in Atlanta since 1966. They have played 48 seasons there and overall have been a success story. TBS helped make them Americass team and they had a run over 14 straight years in the post-season (albeit with only one World Series victory). Their attendance has been good, but never spectacular. Going back to 2006, the lowest theyve drawn is 2.37 million in 2009 and 2011. They peaked at 2.75 million in 2007 over that eight-year span. This past season, they drew 2.55 million, virtually the same as the Blue Jays. I guess what Im saying is, there doesnt really seem to be the need for a new baseball stadium in the greater Atlanta area. If this new one is indeed ready by 2017, the Braves will have played in three stadia in 52 years in the same city. If they can do it, and the taxpayers can live with it, more power to them. The Blue Jays are coming up to their 25th full season at Rogers Centre. There is no new home in the forseeable future for the Jays, just natural grass by 2018 or so. It would be great to see the Blue Jays have the kind of ballpark they have in Pittsburgh, San Francisco or Baltimore. But to see Atlanta leaving a facility that was constructed for the 1996 Olympics after just 20 seasons just seems so wrong. Trade Rumours There used to be a time when there seemed to be lull after the World Series until the Winter Meetings in December but no more. With the General Managers Meetings starting Monday in Orlando, baseball talk will be at a fever pitch with free agent signings being negotiated and the groundwork being laid for trades. The Blue Jays top priority is at least one, if not two, starting pitchers, who would fit in as 1-2 or 3s. They also need an upgrade behind the plate and help at second base. There was another interesting rumour that surfaced over the weekend with Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe suggesting the Dodgers were trying to move one of their high-priced outfielders, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and/or Carl Crawford. http://www.stansmithireland.com/originals-adidas-zx-750-trainers/adidas-zx-750-grey.html. Cafardo claimed the Blue Jays were at least exploring the possibility of landing one of the three over concerns that Melky Cabrera would never be the player they thought when they signed him to that two-year deal last year. Though they seemed to have an endless supply of money, the Dodgers apparently want to deal one of these monster contracts to free up the cash to lock up Clayton Kershaw and Hanley Ramirez. It doesnt make any real sense for the Blue Jays to be chasing any of those three, considering the size and duration of their contracts and the health issues of all three over the past couple of seasons. Time Flies Here is an odd coincidence I dug up this week. In their first season, veteran Bill Singer was a highly touted righthander who was expected to lead the expansion staff. Thanks in large part to arm troubles that ultimately ended his career after 1977, Singer went 2-8 with a 6.79 ERA. This past season, the Blue Jays aquired Josh Johnson to be a top-end starter and possible ace. Again thanks to a myriad of physical troubles, Johnson wound up with a record of, you guessed it, 2-8 and a 6.20 ERA. The difference is, Johnson still might be able to land a one-year deal worth $8-10 million on the open market this off-season. I was wondering the other day if we had officially closed the book on the 20th century. That is to say, are there any former Blue Jays still active from the 1999 team? It turns out there are two: Harry Leroy (Roy) Halladay the III and Vernon Michael Wells the III. Halladay was in his first full season with the Jays in 1999, going 8-7 with a 3.92 earned run average. Wells was making his rookie debut in 1999, hit his first Major League homer and knocked in eight runs in 88 at bats. Halladay is a free agent now. He was born May 14th, 1977. On that day the Blue Jays got drilled 13-3 by the Twins at old Metropolitan Stadium. Wells is going into the final year of his contract with the Yankees at $21 million, the bulk of which is still being paid by the Angels. Incidentally, the highest paid Blue Jay in 1999 was current Jays coach Pat Hentgen at $8.6 million. And Shawn Green, who turned 41 on Sunday, was part of that team.
