PITTSBURGH -- On the day he learned the San Diego Padres would go to a six-man rotation to help limit his innings, Christian Friedrich wished hed been able to stick around a little longer. Nick Foles Eagles Jersey .Friedrich gave up four runs and nine hits in six innings Thursday and the Padres lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0.The Padres said Clayton Richard will join the rotation on Sunday. San Diego is in a stretch of 16 consecutive games and wants to keep down the workload of Friedrich (4-8), who threw only 58 1/3 innings in 2015, and 23-year-old Luis Perdomo.The Padres are contemplating shutting down Friedrich entirely at some point in the future.Hes a guy that were very aware of his innings right now, manager Andy Green said. Were looking at the health of the starters with pre-eminent importance right now.With Christian, weve talked openly with him that were not sure how many more starts he has. Im comfortable right now just kind of playing it start-by-start, he said. He feels fine, but when you get over 40 innings above what you were the year before and youre approaching as many youve thrown at any point in time, as an organization, we have to be cognizant of that and put his health at the top of the list.Josh Harrison hit a leadoff double in the first off Friedrich and scored on David Freeses single.Freese hit an RBI double in the third and scored on a single by Gregory Polanco. Harrison singled home a run in the fourth.Similar to last start, just a couple bad pitches, Friedrich said. The fastball (to Freese) was supposed to be down and away and I just left it up.I felt pretty good, just would be happier trying to go deeper into games, obviously, and would like to knock out some of those big-run innings, he said.The Padres couldnt do much against Pirates rookie Jameson Taillon (3-2), who held them to three hits in his eight innings.Neftali Feliz and Tony Watson combined to pitch a scoreless ninth, with Watson earning his fourth save.UP NEXTPadres: Paul Clemens (1-2, 4.61 ERA) will make his third straight turn in the rotation as the Padres begin a three-game series in New York against the Mets. He has not pitched more than five innings in any appearance this season.Pirates: Ivan Nova (8-6, 4.83) will make his second NL since coming over from the New York Yankees at the trade deadline as the Pirates start a three-game series at the Los Angeles Dodgers. He gave up three runs in seven innings in his first start with Pittsburgh on Sunday. Wes Hopkins Jersey . Dukurs winning time was 1 minute, 45.76 seconds, a quarter-second better than Russias Alexander Tretiakov. Lativas Tomass Dukurs was third, 1.41 seconds off the pace. Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. Brian Westbrook Youth Jersey . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. http:///...dwards-black-jersey/ . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. BOSTON -- Rick Porcellos 20 victories this season are impressive in their own right, but his performance at Fenway Park has proven to be the backbone of his success.Still unbeaten at home, Porcello looks to improve to 14-0 at Fenway as the Boston Red Sox host the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of a three-game set Wednesday.Baltimore (79-65) picked up a game in the American League East standings after bouncing back from Mondays 12-2 rout with a 6-3 victory.The Orioles are tied for second with the Toronto Blue Jays, who lost at home to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, and are two games back of division-leading Boston (81-63).We get a chance to win another series on the road, which is something we knew we were going to have to do, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said.Weve got a 20-game winner going again tomorrow and weve got (Kevin Gausman), so well see what happens.Porcello (20-3, 3.21 ERA) is without a loss in his 14 starts at Fenway this year, posting a 3.03 ERA and 77 strikeouts over 92 innings at the ballpark.Porcello notched win No. 20 on Friday in Toronto, holding the Blue Jays to two runs on six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over seven innings.Its definitely a huge honor, Porcello said of his milestone victory. Its hard to win one game in the big leagues, let alone 20, so Im definitely very proud.The right-hander has lasted seven or more innings and allowed three or fewer earned runs in nine consecutive starts, the longest streak in the majors this season.Porcellos impressive streak is the longest by a Red Sox pitcher since Hall of Famer Pedro Martinezs 11-game run in 2000.Just a mmodel of consistency, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Clayton Thorson Eagles Jersey. He keeps rolling along and we play with a lot of confidence (behind him).As dominant as Porcello has been in 2016, his lifetime numbers against Baltimore arent pretty. He is 3-7 with a 5.61 ERA in 13 career starts against the Orioles.Last time out against the Os, Porcello allowed five runs on six hits with three strikeouts in six innings and did not factor into the decision.Chris Davis is batting .276 (8-for-29) with three home runs and seven RBI off Porcello. Adam Jones has hit .270 (10-for-37) with two homers and eight RBI, but Porcello has 11 strikeouts against him.Baltimore hands the ball to Gausman (7-10, 3.61 ERA), who had a four-start winning streak and scoreless stretch of 20 2/3 innings snapped in a no-decision Friday in Detroit.He gave up three runs in six innings against the Tigers.Gausman boasts a 1.08 ERA in four starts since Aug. 23.Against the Red Sox, the right-hander is 2/3 with a 4.74 ERA in 12 career games (seven starts). He has gone 0-2 with a 6.30 ERA in seven outings (three starts) at Fenway.Gausman has faced the Red Sox twice this season, most recently June 11 when he was shelled for six runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts in just three innings in a 6-4 loss in Boston.David Ortiz is swinging at a .444 clip (8-for-18) against Gausman with three doubles, two homers and five RBI. Mookie Betts is batting .357 (5-for-14) with two homers and four RBI off Gausman. ' ' '
