SAN FRANCISCO -- Cuban defector Odrisamer Despaigne made fired San Diego general manager Josh Byrnes look good in his sterling major league debut. Marcus Cannon Jersey . Despaigne became the fourth Padres pitcher to throw seven scoreless innings in his first big league start, leading San Diego to a 6-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. "He pitched great didnt he?" Padres manager Bud Black asked. "Are you kidding me? That was great." Tommy Medica hit a two-run double off Matt Cain (1-6) after the umpires took away a three-run home run by Yasmani Grandal on a replay review to give the crafty Despaigne (1-0) the support he needed. Despaigne, who defected from Cuba last summer, got the win less than two months after Byrnes signed him to a minor league deal. Byrnes was fired Sunday so he didnt get the chance to benefit from the decision. Despaigne had a 6.03 ERA in seven minor league starts in his first season as a professional after defecting from Cuba last summer. "It took me for surprise to be here," he said through an interpreter. "It was a dream come true." Despaigne kept the Giants off-balance all game by changing his arm angle and mixing in big, slow curveballs with his harder pitches. He allowed four hits and became the seventh pitcher in the past 100 years to throw at least seven scoreless innings with no walks in his first career start. Despaigne had the element of surprise in his favour as the Giants had not even seen him pitch in spring training. "At this point in the year youve kind of seen everything but he was just on," right fielder Hunter Pence said. "He was locating, he had the ball moving a lot of different directions. He threw me pretty much everything. He didnt really leave too much over the plate. I think he just mixed it up the whole game." The Giants lost for the 10th time in 13 games. Neither team had a hit in the first three innings before the Padres got to Cain in the fourth. The rally started when Everth Cabrera reached on a one-out infield single and advanced to third on Seth Smiths single. One out later, Grandal hit a drive to right-centre that initially appeared to clear the wall for a three-run homer. But Pence immediately signalled that a fan interfered on the play and ran toward the umpires to protest. The umpires called for a video review and the play was changed to a double with Smith being sent back to third base even though he most likely would have scored easily from first on a two-out hit to the deepest part of the stadium. Black ran out of the dugout to challenge the ruling and was immediately ejected by crew chief Brian ONora. "I just thought the logical thing to do was have Smitty score," Black said. "I was in disbelief when they placed him at third base." The call became moot when Medica followed with a two-run double to make it 3-0 as Cain struggled once again. The Padres tacked on three runs in the eighth with an RBI single by Cabrera, a run-scoring double to Smith and a throwing error by Pence. Cain allowed six runs and seven hits in 7 1-3 innings and has just one win in 12 starts this season. "Ive been throwing the ball good but I havent been making the pitch that I need to here and there to shut down an inning," Cain said. "I need to do a better job of doing that. I think everything else will work itself out but Ive got to make those pitches." NOTES: There was a pregame video tribute to Padres Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who died last week at age 54. There was also a No. 19 honouring Gwynn on the wall in right field. ... Padres 3B Chase Headley (back) missed his fourth straight game but could return Tuesday. ...

Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., were second with 77.01 points, just behind Olympic bronze medallists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany.

Tampa Bays Cesar Ramos walked Rosales with two outs in the 14th inning to force in the winning run and the Texas Rangers beat the Rays 3-2 on Tuesday night. Ramos (2-5), the Rays seventh pitcher, walked Rosales on four pitches, allowing pinch-running pitcher Nick Martinez to score. "Thats just unacceptable on my part," Ramos said. Texas sixth pitcher, Scott Baker (1-3) earned the victory with two scoreless innings. The Rangers had lost all 20 games in which he appeared before Tuesday. "Baker got the job done, and now hes got a win," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. Geovany Soto reached on third baseman Evan Longorias error with one out in the 14th. Martinez entered and advanced on singles by Rougned Odor and Shin-Soo Choo. "I just kind of went off Elvis (Andrus) at-bat," Rosales said. "He really didnt give Elvis too many good pitches to hit, so I figured Youve got to be really patient with this guy." Rays manager Joe Maddon said, "Just throw a strike there. Give us a chance." In contrast, Texas pitchers allowed no walks. Rangers starter Nick Tepesch allowed no hits until Sean Rodriguez singled to lead off the fifth inning. Texas tied the score 2-all in the seventh against reliever Joel Peralta. Odors sacrifice fly and a double by Choo drove in the runs. Rays right fielder Kevin Kiermaier then threw out Choo trying to score on Andrus single. Desmond Jennings and Matt Joyce tripled and scored for the Rays two runs in the sixth. Tampa Bays Jeremy Hellickson pitched six scoreless innings, allowing six hits. He preserved the Rays 2-0 lead in the sixth after Texas put runners on seconnd and third with one out. Rex Burkhead Jersey. Tepesch allowed four hits and no walks in seven innings. Texas bullpen went another seven innings without allowing a walk - and only two hits. "Outstanding," Washington said. "The biggest one was (Roman) Mendez coming in and getting Longoria (with two out in the eighth)." Said Rosales: "Thank goodness our pitching staff really kept us in it." TRAINERS ROOM Rangers: RF Alex Rios (sprained right ankle) wasnt in the lineup for the second consecutive game, but pinch hit in the 13th inning. ... RHP Tanner Scheppers, out for the season with an inflamed elbow, said he would be a reliever next year. Rays: Kiermaier, who left Mondays game because of tightness in his left lower back, returned to the lineup. UP NEXT The teams will play the third game of a four-game set Wednesday night. Tampa Bay: RHP Chris Archer (7-6, 3.33) hasnt pitched in Arlington, and is 0-0 with a 2.77 career starts against Texas. Rangers: RHP Miles Mikolas (1-4), who has lowered his ERA from 10.05 to 6.57 in his last four starts, will face the Rays for the first time. SNAPPING A SLUMP Texas CF Leonys Martin, hitless in his previous 12 at-bats, singled four times for his first career four-hit game. He had been 6-for-54 in his previous 16 games. CHALLENGING The Rays won a fifth-inning challenge and lost one in the 10th. First, Martin was called safe on a slide at second base, but after review he was out. In the 10th, replay confirmed that Zobrist was out at first.
