PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks first three-game series sweep of the San Diego Padres in more than five years had good timing.The Diamondbacks edged the Padres 3-2 on pinch hitter Phil Gosselins RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning to complete the sweep in the season finale and keep Arizona from last place in the NL West, which fell to San Diego.Tuffy Gosewich doubled against the Padres Brad Hand (4-4) after two fly outs, then was replaced by pinch-runner Socrates Brito. Gosselin lined his winning hit up the middle to end the game.It isnt easy, especially the last day. Guys minds are going everywhere, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. For them to really bear down in a close game and keep fighting, make pitches, get key hits. It was very exciting to get three wins. It was something we talked about on Friday. `We have a chance to move in front of these guys. Lets see if we can do it. We did it. Mission accomplished.The Diamondbacks finished with 69 wins -- 10 fewer than last season -- in a year with higher expectations. They edged the Padres by a game in the division standings.It leaves you with a little bit better feeling going into the offseason, Gosselin said.Reliever Daniel Hudson (3-2) earned the win in what could be his last season as a Diamondback, as he becomes a free agent after joining Arizona midway through 2010.That was a cool moment. I wanted to get in there, Hudson said, his eyes welling up with tears.The Padres thought they took the lead in the top of the ninth when Ryan Schimpfs fly ball down the right-field line was originally called a home run. But after a video review, it was ruled a foul ball.I really didnt see much. Hoping they would call it fair, Schimpf, who hit 20 home runs after starting the season at Triple-A, said. Wed like to see it cross around the pole but definitely the replay showed it was foul.Brandon Drurys two-out home run off Hand tied the score 2-2 in the eighth. Hand had worked scoreless relief in 61 of 81 games this season.Luis Sardinas doubled home Austin Hedges, whod doubled with one out, off Arizona reliever Steve Hathaway in the seventh. That gave the Padres a 2-1 lead.Arizona had a chance to tie in the bottom of the seventh when Mitch Haniger singled and took second on a sacrifice. Pinch hitter Kyle Jensen lined a single to left that was dropped by Padres left fielder Alex Dickerson, but Haniger was being held up at third base and had to stay there.Jean Segura, who entered the game batting .408 in his last 18 games, grounded into a double play to end the threat.Drury came home on a force out in the third inning to give the Diamondbacks the early lead. The Padres tied it at 1 in the fourth on Hunter Renfroes two-out double to drive in Wil Myers.Matt Koch, making his second career major league start, allowed a run and five hits in six innings, striking out three without a walk for the Diamondbacks. The PadresPaul Clemens struck out seven and walked two in six innings of four-hit ball.SEGURA HOPES FOR WBC CALLSegura ended up with a .319 batting average and became the first Arizona player to lead the NL in hits with 203 this season. Asked if hed be welcome the chance to play for his native Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic next March, Segura smiled.If they invite me, Im going to because its a great experience representing your country, Segura said. You dont know where youre going to be in four more years. Life is so short, you dont know when you go. So you have to take the opportunity to play today. To be a part of that is a privilege, its an honor.THANKING THE FANSDiamondbacks players and coaches came out of the dugout before the bottom of the fifth inning and doffed their caps to the crowd in appreciation. The team drew just over two million fans in attendance over 81 home dates this season.ENBERGS FAREWELLBefore the third inning began, the Diamondbacks paid tribute to Padres broadcaster Dick Enberg, who called his last game on Sunday. Enberg has won 14 Emmys and nine Sportscaster of the Year awards, among many other honors, over his long career calling baseball and other sports. He acknowledged the crowd of 31,385 with a wave and fist pump as fans cheered and applauded. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Authentic .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013.

The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- If Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer needs some kind of spark to get out of the long, difficult slump that has been his 2016 season, perhaps the Minnesota Twins will do the trick.Archer is 5-15, leading the majors in losses, with just one win in his last 10 starts and his team 2-8 in those games. Baseball hasnt had a 20-game loser since Detroits Mike Maroth in 2003, and if Archer is to keep pitching and avoid such infamy, something has to change.For his career, Minnesota has been that kind of cure-all -- hes 4-1 all-time against the Twins, with a sterling 1.78 ERA in his five starts. He actually lost in his last outing against Minnesota, but struck out 12 in doing so nearly a year ago in August.And if the Rays, too, are to reverse their struggles, theyll need Archer to last longer than Fridays starter, Blake Snell, who got to 97 pitches in just 5 1/3 innings, putting a 2-1 lead in the hands of the Tampa Bay bullpen.It didnt go well, as relievers Erasmo Ramirez and Ryan Garton combined to give up five runs and six hits in their 3 2/3 innings, while the Twins bullpen calmly threw 2.2 innings of one-hit, scoreless relief.(Ramirez) has been throwing the ball pretty good for us, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. Today, you go back and look at those pitches and Im guessing they were probably hit where they were suppoosed to be hit, (given) the location.dddddddddddd.Those pitches included a two-run home run to Eddie Rosario and a solo shot from Miguel Sano. And just as the Twins have been good for Archer in the past, the Rays could benefit from facing a young, unproven arm in Minnesota starter Jose Berrios, who is carrying an 8.57 ERA with a 2-1 record.Berrios had good numbers at Triple-A Rochester, carrying a 2.71 ERA in 13 starts, and Saturday will be his second start since being recalled. He took the win in his last start, giving up three runs on five hits in six innings for a quality start, retiring 15 straight at one point.Minnesota kept the Rays from causing any real trouble in Fridays opening win, holding them to a 1-for-7 night with runners in scoring position. Starter Ervin Santana gave up three hits in the first five at-bats, then settled down to retired 10 straight and last into the seventh inning. Their bats, meanwhile, came through with four hits with runners in scoring position, allowing them to break open a game that was a pitchers duel entering the seventh inning.A nice overall win for us, manager Paul Molitor said. We had to keep fighting. We fought our way back in the game and the bullpen was solid. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
