PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks scored their only runs with the help of an infield double. Mats Naslund Jersey . The way Patrick Corbin pitched Tuesday night, that was all they needed. Corbin allowed three hits in seven innings and joined Randy Johnson as the only left-handers in team history to win their first six starts, lifting the Diamondbacks to a 2-0 win over the Atlanta Braves. "That guy is tough," Braves catcher Gerald Laird said. "It seems like he is effectively wild." Corbin (6-0) was certainly wild at times, walking five and going into deep counts on seemingly every batter. He managed to miss in the right spots, though, and induced three double plays while striking out five in his career-best sixth straight win. The young left-hander also helped keep Braves slugger Justin Upton in check after his impressive performance the night before and became the first Diamondbacks pitcher to start 6-0 since Brandon Webb won nine straight decisions in 2008. Johnson won his first six starts in 2001 and went 7-0 in 2000, putting Corbin in the same company as a five-time Cy Young Award winner. "I feel good and I just want to keep it going," Corbin said. "Anytime I can go out there and pitch like this is awesome." David Hernandez struck out the side in the eighth and Heath Bell worked around an error in the ninth for his fifth save to help Arizona end a three-game losing streak. Julio Teheran (2-1) matched Corbin most of the way, but crossed signals with first baseman Freddie Freeman on Gerardo Parras infield double in the third inning. Didi Gregorius, who made some stellar plays at shortstop behind Corbin, followed with a two-run single. That turned about to be enough against the Braves, who had four hits -- two by Reed Johnson -- and went 0 for 4 with runners in scoring position to lose for the fourth time in five games. Atlanta was shut out by Arizona for the first time since May 16, 2009, and the first time at Chase Field since May 20, 2006. "I thought our hitters, it was a great plan of attack against them, and hit some balls hard," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "That is all you can do, really. We had people on base almost every inning. (Corbin) wiggled out of there in the seventh inning with some people on base. Thats the nature of the game sometimes." Corbin has been Arizonas best pitcher early this season, setting a club record by allowing two runs or fewer and lasting at least six innings in his first eight starts. He struggled with his control a bit against the Braves, walking four -- Upton twice -- in the first four innings. He worked around the extra baserunners, though, erasing two of them with double plays A walk in the sixth also went nowhere when first baseman Paul Goldschmidt snared Freemans liner and stepped on the bag for another double play. Corbin also got some help from Gregorius, who made a tough play in the hole to throw out Laird by a step in the fifth. Corbin also helped contain Upton, who made a statement in the series opener. Back at Chase Field for the first time since being traded to the Braves this past off-season, he hit a towering, two-run homer and had four hits against the team that selected him No. 1 overall in the 2005 amateur draft. The two-time All-Star in six seasons with the Diamondbacks wasnt as good in his encore, striking out with a runner on in the eighth and finishing 0 for 2. "What he did with Justin tonight was keep it out of spots where he could hurt him," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said about Corbin. Teherans otherwise-impressive start against the Diamondbacks was derailed, by all things, by an infield double. The play happened when Parra hit a chopper to the right side in the third inning. Teheran chased after the ball and so did Freeman before both pulled back at the last second. The ball rolled past second baseman Dan Uggla, who was racing to cover first, and Parra ended up at second. Gregorius followed with a two-run single to centre. Teheran allowed two more hits after that and was lifted for a pinch hitter in the seventh. He allowed two runs on seven hits with three strikeouts and was hurt most by a double that barely left the infield. "It was my good stuff today," said Teheran, who took his first loss since his major league debut on May 5, 2011, at Philadelphia. "I made good pitches, was getting ahead in counts. It was just one bad play. A difficult play." Turned out to be just enough for the Diamondbacks and Corbin. NOTES: Atlanta CF B.J. Upton didnt play after being hit on the shoulder by a pitch the night before. ... Arizona has scored three runs or fewer in seven straight games. ... Atlantas Andrelton Simmons snapped an 0-for-21 skid with a bloop single in the eighth. .. Atlanta RHP Tim Hudson will try to bounce back from a shaky outing in the series finale. He allowed six runs on seven hits in the fourth inning against the Giants, but is 4-0 with a 0.94 ERA in five career starts in Arizona. ... RHP Ian Kennedy will start for Arizona after a solid previous start. He allowed two runs in the first inning against the Phillies, but settled down and didnt allow a run over the next six innings. Kennedy has not won since opening day. Alexei Kovalev Jersey .5 million, one-year contract on Friday. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training. Guy Lafleur Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. http://www.officialcanadiensproshop.com/...-Adidas-Jersey/ . - Connor McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime as the Erie Otters came from behind to defeat the visiting Guelph Storm 4-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. NYON, Switzerland -- The Champions League final could be contested outside Europe for the first time, new UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said Thursday.In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Ceferin said he will revive an open bidding process for the right to host the climax to the European club season and is open to the game being staged in New York.Iit might be an idea in future but we have to speak about it, Ceferin said, highlighting how travel times across Europe can be as long as flights to the United States. To go from Portugal to Azerbaijan for example is almost the same or the same as if you go to New York. For the fans its no problem but we should see. Its a European competition so lets think about it.UEFA could gauge the appetite for taking its major finals beyond Europe by first experimenting with the less-regarded Super Cup, which is played in August between the winners of the Champions League and Europa League.UEFA has until now been awarding the honor of staging its showpiece finals without any tendering process, with stadium hosts decided in secret by the leadership.The bidding process should be very clear because if you get the Champions League finals or Europa League finals as a political favor then its not OK, Ceferin said. With a clear bidding procedure I will protect also the administration and myself because whoever tries to call us, to push us, to ask us for such a favor we will have a clear answer, `Sorry, there are clear rules we cannot do it.In his first major interview since succeeding Michel Platini as UEFA president last month, Ceferin displayed a willingness to innovate while not damaging the organizations lucrative competitions.The Champions League is the best sporting product in the world, Ceferin said at UEFA headquarters in Nyon on the banks of Lake Geneva.And the former Slovenia federation president will not sacrifice the success of the competition by shifting kickoff times to pander to expanding soccer markets in Asia just to sweep up more television viewers or sponsors in the region. Games are always played in the evening in Europe, when much of Asia is asleep.From a financial point of view its not ideal, Ceferin said. We should think also about other markets, but how to do it exactly Im not sure yet. China is financially interesting and the U.S. is not just financially interesting, but football is growing there.Only the final is played on a Saturday, but one option would be to also move the semifinals from their current midweek slot.There are some ideas about that because then China is not asleep because its Saturday and theyy can watch, said Ceferin, whose presidential term runs until 2019. Tomas Plekanec Jersey. But there are many problems concerning that with the calendar of the leagues. National leagues are too important.You have the Premier League which is very strong. Its an idea (semifinals at the weekend) that came out but its too early to say anything concrete on it.While mulling modifications to the Champions League, Ceferin is also involved in talks on whether to expand the World Cup. In his first FIFA Council meeting last week since becoming one of the governing bodys vice presidents, Ceferin heard President Gianni Infantino propose boosting the World Cup from 32 to 48 teams.We didnt want to vote on it as it was too early, Ceferin said. We simply didnt get any information about it. Nothing. Just shall we expand or not. We said we cannot say.Ceferin is awaiting proper analysis on the merits of such a significant overhaul of the tournament. He is already certain Europe should gain a fair share of the additional 16 places rather than expansion being used to correct disparities between how the slots are currently split between the six confederations.Thirteen teams qualify for the World Cup from the 55-nation UEFA region and Ceferin believes that fans in North America and Asia prefer to watch our teams.If you put it to a vote (on the number of additional UEFA places) we might lose but we are the strongest confederation, nobody should forget that -- strongest in quality and all other aspects, Ceferin said. We have the best national teams. So I doubt they will outvote us.Ceferin said UEFA doesnt want to hurt the other confederations but sees additional European teams as adding to the quality of the World Cup.I know everyone is afraid of playing Europe in the playoffs, he said. I can understand them but if you are afraid of playing someone that team is probably better so that team deserves to go (to the World Cup).UEFA has already ceded ground on the 2026 World Cup, with Ceferin approving FIFA blocking Europe from bidding given the 2018 tournament is in Russia. North America is now the favorite to host the event for the first time since the 1994 World Cup in the United States.It would really be hard for me to say it would be good if it goes to North America or Africa, Ceferin said. But given the infrastructure possibilities, probably Africa will have a hard time to place a serious bid.---Rob Harris can be followed at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
