SEATTLE -- Learning that former Padres Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn had died completely changed Chris Youngs outlook on pitching against his former team. "I think any fun about pitching against them disappeared this morning with the news of Tony passing," the Mariners right-hander said after Seattles 5-1 win over San Diego on Monday night. "My condolences go out to his family, the Padres organization, the city of San Diego. He meant a lot to everyone there and Im grateful I had the opportunity to work with him and get to know him." The loss capped a sombre day for the Padres organization. Gwynn, 54, died Monday morning of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. "Even though were away from San Diego I think the Mariners did a good job of putting Tony out there," Padres manager Bud Black said. Kyle Seager hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Brad Miller added a solo shot, and Young threw six shutout innings against his former team. San Diego was on the verge of being shut out by Young (6-4) and a pair of relievers until Carlos Quentin hit a solo homer leading off the ninth. But Gwynn was on everyones mind at Safeco Field. Seattle honoured Gwynn with a video tribute and moment of silence before the game and put a 19 on the dirt in the hole between the shortstop and third baseman. Gwynn called that the "5.5 hole" and many of his 3,141 hits went through it. San Diego added black armbands to its uniform in honour of Gwynn, and his No. 19 jersey hung in the Padres dugout. His jersey also was scattered among fans in attendance. "He is the city of San Diego. You talk Padres baseball, Tony Gwynn is everything there," Young said. Seagers homer came on a 3-0 pitch from San Diego starter Tyson Ross (6-6). Coming off a 4-for-4 performance on Sunday, Seager was given the green light and hit his 10th homer of the season. Miller followed with a solo homer an inning later. Robinson Cano added an RBI double as Seattle scored all five runs in the first two innings. Seager leads Seattle in home runs and has seven hits in his last 10 at-bats with six RBIs. James Jones also stole three bases and scored twice for Seattle. "Its a good feeling that the skipper has confidence in you, thats always good," Seager said. "In that situation I had seen a couple of pitches ... when you get the opportunity you have to make sure you capitalize and get a ball in the air. Young was once an All-Star for the Padres and has become a valuable acquisition since joining Seattle at the end of spring training. After losing his last two starts, Young gave up two hits in the first inning and then cruised. He retired 16 of the final 19 batters he faced, giving up a pair of singles and issuing one walk. He matched his season high with six strikeouts. Joe Beimel, who gave up the final home run in Gwynns career, pitched one inning of relief for Seattle. Tom Wilhelmsen then got the final six outs, but couldnt complete the shutout giving up Quentins third homer of the season. Ross had allowed only one homer in his previous six starts, but struggled all night. He walked a career-high seven and at least one in every inning. Ross pitched into the sixth inning and helped save the Padres bullpen. "My command wasnt very sharp tonight," Ross said. "I kind of grinded through some innings there and overall just wasnt in the strike zone early and often enough." NOTES: Young has now faced all 30 teams in the majors. ... Seattle hopes to send injured 1B Justin Smoak (quad) out on a rehab assignment Wednesday. Corey Hart (hamstring) and Michael Saunders (shoulder) could join Smoak on rehab assignments by the end of the week. ... In 11 career games against Seattle, Gwynn hit .261 (12 for 46) with three doubles and four RBIs. Authentic Pontus Aberg Jersey .

The stakes were higher, the competition more fierce and the atmosphere was that of a playoff game - something the young, upstart Raptors have five weeks to better prepare themselves for or the result will be eerily similar. http://www.cheapoilersjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-glenn-anderson-jersey .

Daly to start for England Elliot Daly will make his first England start on Saturday against South Africa However, the Springboks have struggled since reaching last years World Cup semi-finals and come into Saturdays Twickenham clash on the back of a record home defeat to New Zealand and late draw against the Barbarians. England, on the other hand, are on an upward curve and boast a 100 per cent record under Eddie Jones. They will look to build on their Six Nations Grand Slam success and series whitewash of Australia as they seek an 11th successive win. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass The nations have served up some memorable contests in the autumn internationals over the years. Here are five of our favourite Twickenham Tests…2002: England run riot England scored seven tries against the 14-man Springboks South Africa are renowned for their physicality but they completely lost their discipline against Clive Woodwards men and were duly punished as they fell to their heaviest ever defeat.Lock Jannes Labuschagne was red-carded after 23 minutes for a late barge on Jonny Wilkinson, one of a number of cheap shots that left Woodward and the England coaching staff fuming.The England players kept their composure in difficult circumstances and played some inspirational rugby, running in seven tries in a one-sided 53-3 victory. Ben Cohen applauds the sending off of Jannes Labuschagne Will Greenwood scored twice and Lawrence Dallaglio brought England past the half-century mark when he dotted down from a dominant five-metre scrum.The Springboks went a mile over the line today, said England assistant coach Phil Larder. We were always prepared for our key players to be put under pressure but I was surprised by the severity of it.To me the games all about winning, not putting opposition players in a heap over the sideline.2004: Champagne Charlie Charlie Hodgson scored 27 points as England registered their sixth successive win over South Africa Charlie Hodgson led England to their sixth successive win over the Boks as he scored 27 points in a 32-16 victory.The fly-half registered a full house - scoring a try, five penalties, two conversions and a drop goal - with Mark Cueto also touching down for Andy Robinsons side.Bryan Habana crossed for a late try on his Test debut but Springboks coach Jake White admitted his side were outclassed by a superb England performance. QUIZ: Englands last win over SA England were 23-21 winners over South Africa in 2006 but can you name the starting XV? It looked like men against boys at times and these guys are not world champions for nothing, said White.The score probably flattered us a bit and if England had kept the heat on it could have been worse.2006: Englands last win Phil Vickery powered over late on to snap Englands losing streak Phil Vickerys late try gave England a narrow 23-21 victory over the Boks and avoided a record eighth successive Test defeat.ddddddddddddngland trailed 18-6 after tries on either side of half-time by Butch James and Akona Ndungane, with fly-half Hodgson forced off injured shortly before the interval.But the home side capitalised on the sin-binning of Jean de Villiers, Cueto showing quick reactions to touch down after Andy Goode lost the ball while diving for the line, and Vickery barged over late doors to snatch victory. Vunipola ready for brutal Boks Mako Vunipola speaks to Sky Sports ahead of Saturdays Twickenham Test That was for everyone involved in English rugby, said Robinson. It has been tough but everyone kept their composure.The sides met again at Twickenham the following weekend and South Africa prevailed 25-14, sparking the 12-game unbeaten streak against the English.

No contract. 2012: Captains call Chris Robshaws captaincy was called into question after Englands narrow loss to the Springboks Having been criticised for declining kicks at goal during Englands loss to Australia the week previous, Chris Robshaw again came under fire against the Boks.With less than three minutes remaining and England trailing by four points, Robshaw instructed Owen Farrell to go for goal instead of an attacking line-out, much to the fly-halfs disbelief.I thought there would be enough time to go back down there and kick a drop goal, said Robshaw afterwards. England vs Fiji November 19, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass There wasnt, and replays showed Robshaw asking referee Nigel Owens if he was allowed to change his call. South Africa held on for a 16-15 victory thanks to Willem Alberts fortuitous try and 11 points from Patrick Lambie.This defeat was quickly forgotten the following weekend as England produced arguably their best performance under Stuart Lancaster to beat the All Blacks.2014: Losing streak continues South Africa consigned England to their fifth successive Test defeat Three second-half tries were not enough as England fell to a 31-28 loss against South Africa.Danny Care had a moment to forget on his 50th England appearance when his pass was intercepted by Jan Serfontein for the opening try, and a lovely dink over the top by Lambie saw Cobus Reinach cross just 43 seconds after the restart.Englands maul yielded two tries while Victor Matfield was in the bin but the Boks responded with a try from a maul of their own, Schalk Burger the scorer.Dylan Hartley was yellow-carded for a stamp on Duane Vermeulen and that allowed South Africa to extend their lead to eight points, Brad Barritts try coming too late as England fell to a fifth consecutive loss.Watch England v South Africa live on Sky Sports 1 HD on Saturday from 2pm.
