SAN DIEGO - Same pitcher, different approach, and the Los Angeles Dodgers and pitcher Josh Beckett couldnt be happier. T.Y. Hilton Jersey . "Josh was good, and it was a lot of the same thing," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Keeping guys off-balanced." Becketts reinvention continued Saturday night in the Dodgers 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres. His lively right arm which once produced one fastball after another has found new life by easing up. "Its a little easier the other way, but its been good," Beckett said. "Im locating my curveball, too. Its not like Im throwing curveballs down the middle. Im back-dooring them to lefties and getting them away to righties and getting them out front." Beckett (5-4) pitched seven strong innings, and Hanley Ramirez drove in two runs. Beckett, in his first start against San Diego this year, allowed four hits and two walks. No Padres reached second base, and San Diego never had more than one runner on base at a time against him. Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 21st save in 24 chances, one night after allowing three runs for the loss. Tyson Ross (6-7) worked seven innings for San Diego. But the story was Beckett working over the Padres hitters. "(Beckett) had that tantalizing curveball all night long, all different counts," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He kept it down in the strike zone and he was throwing it for a called strike right at the knee. He threw enough fastballs to keep us honest." Beckett continued his stellar work against NL West teams, tying a season-high with eight strikeouts and lowering his ERA to 1.40 against divisional foes. "The way I pitch is different," said Beckett, who is 4-1 on the road with a no-hitter and a 1.88 ERA. "I never really felt like I had to give in." Becket had plenty of praise for Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon, who reached base three times and scored two runs. "Any time he gets on base our chances of scoring go way up," Beckett said. "Hes special over there." Los Angeles, which collapsed in the ninth inning of a loss on Friday night, has won six of eight and nine of 12. Mattingly said it was important to see Jensen return successfully after his meltdown. "That closer has to be able to clean the slate," Mattingly said. "You see them over the years, and guys are going to give up runs. That is just the way it is. "The key is to bounce back, and that has where Kenley has been pretty good. I think he has grown up into this role, to be able to clear the mind and go back out there the next day." Ross delivered a solid effort in his first start since walking seven in a loss at Seattle. He allowed three runs, two earned, and six hits with five strikeouts and one walk. Ross was again done in by the Padres weak offence, which failed to score him a run for the fourth straight outing. In five of Ross last seven starts, the Padres have produced nothing offensively. Beckett kept the Padres baffled with an assortment of offspeed pitches. He improved to 6-2 in nine career starts against him. The Dodgers took a 4-0 edge in the eighth inning on Adrian Gonzalezs run-scoring single. Ramirez put the Dodgers ahead 3-0 in the fifth inning. He lined a single to left to extend his hitting streak to nine games and score Justin Turner. With runners on the corners, Ross retired Yasiel Puig on a grounder to shortstop. The Dodgers broke the scoreless tie in the third on Gordons single, which scored Drew Butera after he opened the inning with a single. Gordon then stole his major league best 39th base and took third on second baseman Jace Petersons error. Matt Kemps sacrifice fly scored Gordon to give the Dodgers had a 2-0 lead. Kemps hitting streak reached nine games when he singled in the sixth. NOTES: Puig was in the starting lineup after leaving Fridays game with a strained left hip muscle. ... INF Juan Uribe (strained right hamstring) could rejoin the team for Sundays series finale. . Padres 3B Chase Headley (back) is expected to avoid the DL. With Headley sidelined, Rivera is taking ground balls at third. ... Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (8-3, 3.13) faces Padres LHP Eric Stults (2-9, 5.76) on Sunday. Pat McAfee Jersey . The matchup will be made up in Minnesota at a later date. The arena was evacuated about 45 minutes before the scheduled 9:30 p.m. EST tipoff when a generator malfunction outside the arena sent smoke pouring into the building, according to NBA spokeswoman Sharon Lima. Margus Hunt Jersey . The 31-year-old, a two-time CFL lineman of the year, was among the most coveted free agents on the market. The Windsor, Ont., native will be especially important to a team that has lost veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo to retirement and is expected to go with the less experienced Troy Smith and Tanner Marsh this season. . Colorado came up big against Chicago last spring, and repeated that performance Tuesday night. Varlamov stopped 36 shots and Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist for the Avalanche in a 5-1 victory over the Blackhawks.MONTREAL - The Montreal Impacts rebuilding program took more steps Tuesday with the arrival in camp of Belgian defender Laurent Ciman and a major trade with the New York Red Bulls.The Impact sent popular midfielder Felipe to the Red Bulls for left back Ambroise Oyongo and veteran midfielder Eric Alexander.The trade completes a near-total remake of the back line for a team that allowed 58 goals last season, third worst in Major League Soccer. We feel its in our favour, that we improved the squad, Adam Braz said after his first deal since he was named the Impacts technical director on Nov. 24. They wanted Felipe and they gave up a lot to get him.The Impact should begin the campaign with a back line of returning Frenchman Hassoun Camara at right back, Ciman and newcomer Bakery Soumare in the middle and Cameroon international Oyongo on the left side.The whole back line speaks French now, so theres no reason they cant communicate with each other, quipped coach Frank Klopas.Later Tuesday, Montreal acquired Ghanaian winger/forward Dominic Oduro from Toronto FC in return for allocation money.Montreal also got allocation money and an international roster spot in the New York deal while the Red Bulls got the top spot in the allocation order, which may be the key to the deal. It gives the team who holds it first dibs on any U.S. national team player who wants to return to MLS from an overseas league.The league website reported New York may be interested in midfielder Sasha Kljestan, currently playing for Anderlecht in Belgium. Kljestan was once a teammate of Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch.It was Marsch who brought Felipe to Montreal for its expansion season in 2012. The 24-year-old became a workhorse for the Impact, scoring 12 goals and adding 24 assists in 93 games over three campaigns.There was speculation Felipe may be traded because of a glut of attacking midfielders. There was also concern from some that he had not progressed since his rookie year, which made the Brazilian bristle.You check my statistics: the past two years I did almost the same from my first year, said Felipe. Which player played more minutes than me? (none). Which player had more passes than me? Who creates more than me?Even birds can talk but,, in the end, its what you did (that counts). Indianapolis Colts Jerseys. . Im leaving with my head up because I know I did everything I could for this club.Left back was a revolving door for Montreal after Jeb Brovsky was traded early last season and the Impact hope to have fixed that with Oyongo, backed up by former Chivas USA back Donny Toia. Oyongo is currently playing in the African Cup of Nations, where he scored against Mali on Jan. 20.Hes a tremendous young talent, attack minded, a lot of pace and technical ability, Klopas said of 23-year-old Oyongo, who played 13 games as a rookie for New York last season. He gets forward.Thats the kind of player we were looking for on that side with the way we want to play.Some European clubs have shown interest in Oyongo, so he may draw a tidy transfer fee sometime in the future, Klopas added.The surprise was landing Alexander, a 26-year-old American who started 60 of 68 games over the last two seasons, scoring six goals.In Montreal, he will compete for playing time with designated player Ignacio Piatti, Andres Romero, Justin Mapp and Dilly Duka. His versatility will come in handy, said Braz.Alexander has played out wide and in the middle for New York, he said. He was an important piece of the puzzle for them. Hes got experience and hes at a good age.Alexander, who has played twice for the U.S. national team, is expected to fly in from the Red Bulls camp in Orlando, Fla. on Wednesday.The Impact had already beefed up the holding midfield positions with the addition of veterans Nigel Reo Coker and Marco Donadel.Returnee Jack McInerney was the clubs lone experienced forward before the Oduro trade. The deals overshadowed the arrival of Ciman, who scored a rare goal in his final game for Belgian club Standard Liege on Sunday.The 29-year-old got a free transfer from Standard so he could play in North America and get specialized treatment for his autistic four-year-old daughter that was not available in Belgium.The Impact were able to work out a deal in which Ciman does not use up one of the three spots per team allowed for designated players.Certain things fell into place at the right time, said Braz. Were lucky, but excited to be able to bring a player of his calibre to the club.
