Leo Komarov Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. Mike Palmateer Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic . Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers. http:///...e-leafs-jersey-c-15/ . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. SAN DIEGO -- The worst of the National League West is tying a bow on their four-game series.The Arizona Diamondbacks (51-72) face San Diego (52-71) on Sunday with the Padres trying to snap a four-series losing streak.The Padres, who are headed to their sixth straight losing season, took the first two games before the Diamondbacks rallied behind Robbie Rays gem to win Saturday night.San Diego will be looking to get more hits than errors Sunday, something they didnt do on Saturday. The Padres had four errors and three hits.Arizona right-hander Braden Shipley gets the nod and the Diamondbacks are hoping he doesnt repeat his last performance. Shipley, who is making his first career start against the Padres, was rocked for seven runs (six earned) over five innings in losing to the New York Mets on Tuesday.It was stumble for Shipley, who has been pretty solid since his debut. And he was cruising along through the first four innings when trouble arrived in the fifth. Manager Chip Hale stayed with his youngster and he didnt record an out in the sixth.We dont want them to take their lumps to the point where were out of a game, Hale said. I wish I couldve gotten him out of there a little quicker.Before the Diamondbacks get out of town, theyll face righty Luis Perrdomo. Doug Gilmour Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic. An afterthought at the beginning of the season, Perdomo has become the senior member of the rotation after James Shields, Drew Pomeranz and Andrew Cashner were traded. With opening day starter Tyson Ross limited to one start, Perdomo has been thrust into a more prominent role.Perdomo, who has hit an uneven patch, is making his 14th career start and second against Arizona. He was tagged with his third straight loss in his last outing Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays.Although he didnt pitch that bad, He was charged with three runs and five hits over 5 2/3 innings. His trouble came in the early innings when he was trying to be too fine. He tip-toed out of a first-inning bases loaded jam by allowing one run.Trying to be too perfect, Perdomo said through a translator. That was the biggest issue that I had.Two of Perdomos wins have come against the Diamondbacks, including one in relief. He prevailed in a start on July 4, when pitching six innings of three-run ball.Its the first game for the Diamondbacks in which they officially know shortstop Nick Ahmen is out. Hell undergo season-ending hip surgery next week.
