SAN DIEGO -- Marlon Byrd, Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy each homered to back Jonathon Nieses solid outing, and the New York Mets beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Friday night. Obi Melifonwu Raiders Jersey . Byrd and Davis connected on consecutive pitches from Ian Kennedy in the third inning. Murphy hit a two-run shot an inning later to give the Mets a 5-1 lead. Niese (5-6) allowed one run on six hits in six innings in his second start since returning from the disabled list. Niese struck out a season-high nine and walked one with one hit batter. Niese and three relievers combined to strike out 13, running New Yorks two-game total to 28. LaTroy Hawkins pitched the ninth for his fourth save in seven chances filling in for injured closer Bobby Parnell. Byrd has driven in six runs in his last three games after going without an RBI for the previous 13 games. Before he homered, Murphy had just one extra base hit in his last 20 games. Davis has four homers off Kennedy (4-9) in only nine at-bats. New Yorks Anthony Recker, starting in place of catcher John Buck who went on the paternity list, had a career-best three hits and also reached on a walk. San Diego has dropped eight of 10 and fell into last place in the NL West with the Giants win over Miami. Byrd led off the third inning with his 19th home run and, on the next pitch, Davis hit homer No. 7. It was only the second time this season that New York has hit consecutive home runs. Kennedy, acquired in a trade from Arizona on July 31, allowed five runs on seven hits over 4 2-3 innings in his third start for San Diego. The righty, who has allowed 22 home runs, struck out seven and walked four. Will Venable ran his career-high hitting streak to 13 games with a solo homer in the third. Venables 16th home run extended his career high. Yonder Alonso added an RBI single in the eighth and Jedd Gyorko had three hits for San Diego, including a double. Gyorko has nine hits in his last six games, six for extra bases. NOTES: Kennedy lost for the first time (4-1) against the Mets in six career starts . Padres LF Carlos Quentin is expected to miss another seven to 10 days with a strained right knee. Quentin received a second opinion from the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles on Thursday and San Diego manager Bud Black said the result was "the same findings that our team doctors had." . Slumping New York rookie CF Juan Lagares was held out of the starting lineup. Lagares is hitting .210 (13 for 62) in August and is hitless in his last 13 at-bats with five strikeouts . The teams continue their four-game series Saturday night with Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia (1-2, 2.22 ERA) set to face Padres RHP Edinson Volquez (8-10, 5.80). Obi Melifonwu Jersey . Everton Preview West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been around the game long enough to not get too high when things are going well and not get too low when they arent. Marshawn Lynch Jersey . Parmelee hit a game-ending shot in the ninth inning and the Minnesota Twins overcame David Ortizs big night to beat the Boston Red Sox 8-6 on Tuesday.Iowa City, IA (SportsNetwork.com) - Frank Kaminsky scored 24 points and Nigel Hayes added 14, leading fifth-ranked Wisconsin to a 74-63 victory over Iowa on Saturday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Josh Gasser and Sam Dekker each chipped in 11 for the Badgers (19-2, 7-1 Big Ten), who have won four straight since a stunning loss at Rutgers on Jan. 11. Kaminsky, who missed the game against the Scarlet Knights because of a concussion, also grabbed a game-high nine rebounds on Saturday while making half of his field goal attempts and 8-of-9 from the free throw line. Wisconsin has won 12 of its last 13, including a season sweep of Iowa. The Badgers rolled to an 82-50 rout of the Hawkeyes just 11 days ago in Madison and have won five straight in the series. Ive always thought we played well away from home because of our attention to detail, said Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan about his teams 6-1 road record. For us to get back-to-back (wins) at Michigan and Iowa is huge. Aaron White scored 15 to lead Iowa (13-8, 4-4), which has lost three in a row. White had played just seven minutes in last weeks loss to Purdue because of a stinger. Gabriel Olaseni contributed 12 points for the Hawkeyes, who shot just 30.4 percent in the second half after a 64 percent effort in the opening 20 minutes. Neither team led by more than three in the first half until an 11-3 run gave Wisconsin a 28-20 edge with just over nine minutes to play. Dekker scored the last four of that burst, but Iowa did not wilt and pulled within 32-30 a few minutes later after a 3-pointer by Peter Jok. Gasser followed with a three-point play for the Badgers, who then carried a 42-36 advantage to the break. A treey by Kaminsky to open the second half and a layup from Bronson Koenig extended the margin to 11. Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey. The Hawkeyes got as close as five on a free throw by Olaseni, but it came during an Iowa field goal drought of nearly six minutes. Mike Gesells layup with 9 1/2 minutes remaining ended the dry spell, but Gasser followed with a contested 3-pointer as the shot clock wound down to extend the Wisconsin lead back to 11 at 58-47. We kept plugging defensively, said Ryan. Id like to say we were playing good defense to get it back, but they had some shots that just didnt go down, that do go down at times. Iowa got only as close as eight from there and trailed by as many as 15 down the stretch. Wisconsin held a 35-24 advantage on the boards and finished with 15 offensive rebounds. If youre going to look at one thing that was the difference in the game, it was offensive rebounding, said Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. Normally if they make seven 3s, youve got a shot, but not if you look (at the box score) and see 35-24 (rebounding), 15-7 (offensive rebounding). Thats a recipe for disaster. Game Notes The Badgers made 21-of-26 free throws and 7-of-19 from 3-point range ... Iowa was just 13-of-20 from the stripe ... White has 1,617 career points and moved into sixth place on Iowas all-time scoring list, surpassing Jess Settles (1,611) ... Wisconsin leads the all-time series, 82-79 ... Iowa was trying for its 1,000th home victory and will have another chance at the milestone next Sunday against Maryland. The Hawkeyes will first visit Michigan on Thursday ... Wisconsin will return home to play Indiana on Tuesday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
