SAN DIEGO -- Melvin Upton Jr. Mens Nike Basketball Shoes LeBron Soldier 10 Gold Medal White/Metallic Gold-Dark Obsidian 883333-174 . capped a remarkable first half for the San Diego Padres with a magnificent walk-off home run.Upton hit a 440-foot homer on the first pitch of the ninth from Andrew Miller to give the Padres a 2-1 victory against the New York Yankees on Saturday night.It was his third walk-off homer of the season, a team record, landing in the second balcony on the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-field corner.Ive seen him a lot in the past, so I had a pretty good feel for him and just got something I could handle, said Upton, who has 13 homers. `You never go up and try to hit a home run, just go up and try to put a good A-B together against a very good pitcher.It was Uptons seventh career walk-off homer and his 11th career walk-off hit.Upton said this season, his second in San Diego, is probably the most fun in a while, but Im just glad to have the opportunity to play every day, man.Upton, limited to 87 games last year due to a foot injury, has five more homers than his brother, Justin, who was his teammate with the Padres last year before signing with Detroit.Hes done it enough, hasnt he? manager Andy Green said. Its almost ridiculous how good hes been in pivotal situations. He continues to amaze. Hes a low-heartbeat guy. Theres not a lot that ruffles him. Hes really even-keel. I think to some degree hes probably gotten a bad rap for that over the years, like theres nothing that fazes him. Hes just smooth, glides through the game, everythings relaxed.Miller said he tried to throw a fastball down and away. That pitch is much better located for him. I didnt do it. I wasnt very sharp in general and I paid for it.I just wasnt very good, Miller said. It was not where I wanted to throw that ball. I paid for it, unfortunately. It would have been nice to get some more at-bats. I just didnt do my job.Miller (5-1) was starting his second inning for the Yankees.Brad Hand (2-2) pitched the ninth for the win.There were three replays that took a total of 10 minutes, 10 seconds. Among them was Matt Kemp being thrown out trying to score from second on Uptons single to right to end the sixth.I thought all three of those were ridiculously close today, Green said. All of them hurt us, but at the end, Melvin did what he does.Starters Ivan Nova of the Yankees and Drew Pomeranz of the Padres each allowed one run before turning it over to the bullpens.New York took a 1-0 lead in the sixth when Jacoby Ellsbury hit a leadoff double, advanced on Brett Gardners bunt single and scored on Starlin Castros groundout.San Diego tied it in the bottom of the inning when Wil Myers walked and scored on Kemps double. Kemp tried to score on Uptons single to right, but Rob Refsnyder made a great throw home to Austin Romine, who then blocked the plate with his left foot and tagged Kemp. The Padres challenged, but the call stood after a review of 3:19.The longest replay was 4:20 after Romine was thrown out after a nice throw by third baseman Yangervis Solarte on a slow roller. The call was overturned and Romine was safe with an infield single, but Nova struck out to end the inning.Nova held the Padres to one run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings, struck out seven and walked one.Pomeranz also allowed just one run, and five hits, while striking out seven and walking none.The problem tonight was we didnt score, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Pomeranz has an outstanding curveball and we never were able to solve it. He was tough on our guys. It looked like it might be a 1-0 game.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: Girardi said Carlos Beltran, slowed by a tight right hamstring, will be the DH Monday at Chicago.Padres: Manager Andy Green said RHP Erik Johnson has a flexor tendon strain and is expected to be out for three to six weeks.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Chad Green (0-1, 7.20) is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for his third stint with the team. Itll be his second career start and third appearance.Padres: RHP Andrew Cashner (3-5, 4.75) is due to come off the disabled list to make his first start since June 10, when he was removed from his start at Colorado with a strained neck after throwing just six pitches. Lebron 11 Black . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. Lebron 11 Red .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. http:///...t-kd-trey-5-iii.html .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. Sebastian Vettel reckons Ferraris pace at the Japanese Grand Prix demonstrated a big amount of improvement since the middle of the season.?Vettel had to settle for fourth at Suzuka after another questionable strategy call saw him put on the soft compound tyre and fade in the final stint after emerging behind Lewis Hamilton. Ferrari had out-qualified both Red Bull drivers on Saturday but started further down the field for separate penalties.I think theres been a lot of positives this weekend, Vettel said. Despite the penalty, the qualifying was very strong, the pace of the car was good in the race as well, we were probably the second quickest car out there. So a lot of positives.For sure, not entirely happy because if the podiums there for grasp and you dont take it then it always feels a bit disappointing. But as I said, a lot of positives. If you compare here to Silverstone, which in terms of track characteristics is similar, plus the fact it was quite windy, stuff like that, I think weve improved a big amount since that time.Despite finishing off the podium, Vettel refused to blame the risk Ferrari took on strategy or the numerous backmarkers he coomplained about during the race. KD 9 For Sale. Vettel explained that the team was forced into its eventual strategy by trying to catch second-placed Max Verstappen early in the race.We had different plans for the strategy. ?We obviously had a great start, made good progress in the first couple of laps, gaining a few positions. I think we tried everything to put Max under pressure. He reacted by pitting a bit earlier, all the time, in both stops and we obviously didnt have the freedom in the second stop, as we would pit into traffic with Ricciardo. He could, because in the worst case scenario he could pass Daniel very easily.It was at that point [after the second stop] we decided to go longer in order to come back at the end of the race. Unfortunately the way it turned out the soft tyre didnt last very long and on top of that we lost a position as well to Lewis. But if you look at the position at the end to Lewis, I dont think there was anything we could have done to hold him because the gap to the podium ultimately too big.
