BALTIMORE -- Instead of blowing a lead, the San Diego Padres erased a deficit. Whats more, the comeback came against a guy who hadnt blown a save opportunity since last July. Chris Denorfia and Everth Cabrera hit two-out RBI singles off Jim Johnson in the ninth inning, and the Padres got a home run from Carlos Quentin in a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. After the Orioles took a 2-1 lead in the eighth, Johnson (1-3) entered with a franchise-record streak of 35 straight converted saves. He immediately gave up two consecutive singles before getting Jedd Gyorko to hit into a 6-4-3 double play. But Denorfia followed with a single up the middle and, after Johnson hit Nick Hundley with a pitch, Cabrera singled to centre for a 3-2 lead. The win came after San Diego lost three straight in Tampa Bay, despite holding the lead in the fifth inning or later in each game. "To get to (Johnson) is a great accomplishment for us," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Those are great on the road, they really are, to snatch one back when they took the lead." Johnson hadnt blown a save opportunity since July 27, 2012, against Oakland. His streak of 35 broke the Orioles mark of 34, set in 1997 by Randy Myers. "I really didnt put a whole lot of stock into it," the right-hander said. "It was just something you guys like to talk about." He blamed his reversal of fortune on poor location. "As soon as I got off the field I looked, and pitches were in different spots than theyre normally at," Johnson said. "Its about execution. At this level the talent is too good. You have to execute and tonight I didnt and wasted a good effort from a lot of guys on this team." Cabreras hit was the 60,000th in Padres history. Luke Gregerson (2-2) got the last out in the eighth and Huston Street earned his ninth save. The Padres were 0-18 when trailing after eight innings. Street gave up a game-ending homer in the ninth against Tampa Bay on Saturday, so he was determined to make things right. "The one in Tampa frustrated me more than any save in my life," Street said. "I took a lot of responsibility for not making those pitches. It bugged me, so tonight was one I really wanted." He then said something that Johnson can take to heart. "You can come back and get it done," Street said. "Thats what this game is all about. Its bouncing back. Its just moving on to the next day and making the next pitch. You make the next pitch and good things will happen." Ryan Flaherty homered for the Orioles, who fell to 18-2 when leading after eight. With the score tied at 1 in the eighth, Flaherty drew a one-out walk from Andrew Cashner and was replaced by pinch-runner Alexi Casilla. After Cashner threw to first base several times to check the runner, Casilla took off for second. The throw from Hundley came up short and bounced into the outfield, allowing Casilla to reach third on the error. Steve Pearce followed with a line-drive single to left to chase Cashner, who matched a career high by working 7 1-3 innings. Orioles starter Chris Tillman allowed one run, four hits and two walks in seven innings. Although the right-hander wasnt involved in the decision, he lowered his ERA to 3.40 and remained unbeaten since April 17. It was the first meeting between the teams since 2010 and first in Baltimore since 2002. The series is tied at 5. Quentin led off the second inning with a drive to left to put the Padres up 1-0. San Diego then loaded the bases with two outs before Tillman struck out Cabrera. Flaherty tied it in the third with an opposite-field fly that dropped into the front row of the left-field seats. It was only the second home run off Cashner in his five starts this season. In the sixth, Quentins bid for another home run was denied by centre fielder Adam Jones, who made a leaping catch at the top of the 7-foot wall. NOTES: The Orioles placed LHP Wei-Yin Chen (strained right oblique) on the 15-day disabled list and recalled RHP Alex Burnett and INF Yamaico Navarro from Triple-A Norfolk. ... The Padres have hit 20 homers in their last 15 games. ... Orioles LHP Tsuyoshi Wada, recovering from elbow ligament replacement surgery, will make his first rehabilitation start Thursday for Norfolk. ... Jason Marquis (4-2) starts for the Padres against Freddy Garcia (0-1) in the series finale Wednesday afternoon. ... Gyorko snapped an 0-for-12 slide with a second-inning single. ... Of the 47 home runs Tillman has allowed in his career, 32 have been solo shots. ... Baltimores J.J. Hardy singled in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to 10 games.

Messi pounced on a rebound of Cesc Fabregas strike five minutes after halftime to cancel out Odion Ighalos opener that had come against the flow of play in the 26th. The Argentina star then claimed the victory in the 73rd with a brilliantly struck free kick to record his 17th multi-goal game of the season and take his league-leading goal tally to 37 goals. http://www.uscoltsnfl.com/Colts-Reggie-Wayne-Nike-Jersey/. On the fourth day, the Victoria native used a late move to grab the pink jersey back from the Spanish rider.

Coby Fleener Black Jersey .C. -- Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is in the second year of the five-year, $43.LAS VEGAS -- Chip Ganassi is making another manufacturer switch, taking his sports car program to Ford to run the new EcoBoost engine package next year. The move announced Tuesday at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show comes on the heels of Ganassis switch last month from Honda to Chevrolet in the IndyCar Series. Chip Ganassi Racing is the most successful team in Daytona Prototype history and won its seventh DP team championship this season. It has used BMW engines the last four seasons, but will make the switch to Ford in time for the start of the unified TUDOR United SportsCar Championship series. "We are very excited to be switching to Ford power for our sports car program," Ganassi said. "Over the last 10 seasons we have been able to experience a great deal of success in GRAND-AM and now with the dawn of the new United SportsCar Championship, we feel that Ford power will be a key ingredient to writing the next chapter of our sports car program." The move to Ford marks a return to the blue oval for Ganassi lead driver Scott Pruett. He started with Ford in 1985 and was signed as a full-time factory driver the next season. Pruett won four IMSA and SCCA Trans-Am championships in three years before moving to IndyCar racing. Both of Pruetts IndyCar wins came with Ford and his one full season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was with Ford. "Coming back to Ford is the perfect way to bookend my career," ssaid Pruett.dddddddddddd "To be honest, without Ford, there is no Scott Pruett. Ford gave me the chance to drive my first real race car - the front-engine Mustang GTP in 1983 - and then they were willing to take a chance on me when no one else did in 1985 and 1986." Pruett, winner of 59 major sports car events and a record five Rolex 24 At Daytona wins, will again team with Memo Rojas to pilot the Telcel/TELMEX Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates entry. Pruett and Rojas have won 27 races since 2007. "Partnering with Chip and his championship-calibre organization in this new sports car series is a critical ingredient to our Ford EcoBoost program in USCC," said Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing. Ford debuted its new EcoBoost DP engine at Daytona in September, when Colin Braun drove the 3.5-litre V6 twin-turbo-powered Michael Shank Racing Riley to a track record of 222.971 mph. Ford representatives had been searching for additional teams for 2014 to join Shank, but Ganassi could have also moved to Chevrolet and run Corvette DPs in 2014. He is partnered with Chevrolet in NASCAR, and will be with Chevy next season in IndyCar. Ford EcoBoost branding has appeared on various Ford race cars around the world the past two seasons as part of a strategy to raise brand awareness of the growing Ford line of production engines, which are now available in 1.0-litre, 1.5-litre, 1.6-litre, 2.0-litre and 3.5-litre versions.

 In those early days of the 20th century, no one had yet managed to design a truly reliable Replica Tag Heuer and precise wristwatch. Wristwatches were not in favor at the time, because their comparatively small mechanisms could not compete Panerai Replica with the regularity and reliability of the larger pocketwatch movements. However, since the beginning of his career, Wilsdorf had been firmly convinced Replica Omega that the wristwatch would be future of the watchmaking industry. He devoted the energy of his youth to eliminating all the wristwatch’s weak points and Replica Rolex made the quest for wristwatch precision his first objective. A visionary entrepreneur, Wilsdorf was firmly convinced that precision was essential to ensure the acceptance and eventual popularity of the wristwatch.
