SAN DIEGO -- If this month is going to be a 2015 audition for Randall Delgado, the Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander is off to a good start. Dave Taylor Kings Jersey . Delgado and four relievers combined on a four-hitter, and A.J. Pollock had three hits to help the Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 Thursday night. Delgados outing marked the start of the Diamondbacks going to a six-man rotation. Delgado (3-3) started on April 4 and 10, and then made 37 appearances as a reliever. He came into the game with a 5.85 ERA and held San Diego to two hits in five scoreless innings. He struck out two and walked none. "First of all, we are happy for the win. I tried to be calm and tried to make quality pitches," Delgado said. "I felt good today. Good defence behind me. I didnt try to do much." Delgado threw 61 pitches. It was his first career start without allowing a run or walk. "I think it was the first one in a long time. I felt good about what I did today," he said. Going to a six-man rotation allows the Diamondbacks to reduce the number of innings for some of their young pitchers and gives others, like Delgado, a chance to win a job for next year. "Pretty efficient. He just really featured all of his pitches," manager Kirk Gibson said. "Real good performance." The Diamondbacks won for the fourth time in seven games, including the final two of this four-game series in which they outscored the Padres 11-2. Ian Kennedy (10-12) had a miserable night against his former team, allowing four runs and 10 hits in 5 1-3 innings while striking out two and walking two. Kennedy threw 65 pitches through three innings, falling behind 4-0. He allowed five hits in the three-run second, including RBI base hits by Didi Gregorius and Ender Inciarte. Another run scored on rookie third baseman Cory Spangenbergs throwing error. "I was leaking stuff over the plate early on," Kennedy said. "Made some tough pitches and they put some balls in play that allowed those runs to score in the second inning. "For the most part, early on, I didnt have my best command early in the counts," he said. "I made tough pitches, but overall I didnt have my command. My curveball wasnt that sharp or my changeup, and I didnt have command of my fastball early on." Miguel Montero added an RBI single in the third, and Aaron Hill had an RBI double off Blaine Boyer in the seventh. San Diego loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth against Matt Stites and scored just one run. Oliver Perez came on and threw a wild pitch that brought in San Diegos only run, and then struck out the side. HOT CORNER Arizonas Aaron Hill started at third base for the first time since his rookie season of 2005 with Toronto. He made a great play in the fifth, laying out to make a backhanded catch of Rene Riveras liner. "It was fun. I was hoping for a little more action, but I guess that means our pitchers were doing a great job," he said. Hill is at third so the Diamondbacks can see if Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings is how they want to go up the middle next year. DIAMONDBACKS NUMBERS Arizona has allowed three runs or fewer in eight straight games, the clubs longest streak since doing so in nine consecutive games from Sept. 25, 2005, to April 5, 2006. The Diamondbacks also won their first season series against San Diego since 2011, going 12-7. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: Gibson on the return Wednesday night of RHP Daniel Hudson from two Tommy John surgeries: "To see him out there again was very powerful." Padres: Manager Bud Black said SS Everth Cabrera, on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, wont make the weekend trip to Colorado but will join the team in Los Angeles and be re-evaluated there. UP NEXT Diamondbacks: Arizona buses up the freeway to face the Los Angeles Dodgers for three games, with Vidal Nuno (0-3, 3.23 ERA) scheduled to start Friday night. Padres: LHP Eric Stults (6-15, 4.56) is scheduled to start the opener of a three-game series at Colorado. Hes allowed three or fewer earned runs in 11 of his last 13 starts since June 17. Rogie Vachon Kings Jersey . Woods said Friday that his charity event, which attracts a world-class field even without being part of any tour, will move in December 2014 to Isleworth, the course where he honed his professional game from 1996 until moving away to south Florida two years ago. Wayne Gretzky Jersey . After deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league would consider pulling out of Sochi if something "significant" happens before players arrive, those set to participate are trying not to worry about that scenario. http://www.authentickingsnhlhockey.com/slava-voynov-jersey/ . 1 Pete Sampras. Speaking ahead of an exhibition match against Andre Agassi in London on March 3, Sampras said on a conference call Wednesday that he is impressed by Federers longevity. OAKLAND, Calif. -- By the time reporters were allowed in the visiting locker room at Oracle Arena late Monday night, most of the Philadelphia 76ers already had cleared out. The television in the centre of the room was turned off. There were no box scores from the game on players chairs -- which is typical after most NBA games -- and there were no smiles to be had by anybody. After losing by a total of 88 points on consecutive nights in California, the 76ers just want to forget what happened. "Not going to turn on TV or read the papers," forward Evan Turner said. Marreese Speights scored a career-high 32 points to hand his former team a near-record setback, leading the Golden State Warriors past the woeful 76ers 123-80. Philadelphia nearly matched the NBA mark for the largest total margin of defeat in consecutive games. The Detroit Pistons lost by 95 points combined in back-to-back games in November 1966, according to STATS. "Its hard for everybody," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "The reality of it is they have put in so much time and despite all the turmoil, its a group thats been together, stayed together. At times, you look up and you have to keep going and keep on playing with some level of dignity, and its hard doing that." After losing 123-78 at the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night in a game it trailed by 56 points in the third quarter, Philadelphia (15-3 figured it couldnt get much worse. It almost did. Speights finished 12-of-15 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds, and Stephen Curry added 23 points and eight assists to help the Warriors go ahead by 49 in the fourth quarter. "It was a thing of beauty," Golden State coach Mark Jackson said. Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points, and Turner and Thaddeus Young had 12 points apiece for a rebuilding 76ers team that never put up much of a fight during its seventh straight loss. No other team in NBA history has lost two straight games by at least 40 points each. Philadelphia has now done it twice. The 76ers lost back-to-back games in April 1994 by a combined 93 points, and theyre struggling to explain -- and correct -- what has gone so wrong during this latest stretch. "You just look up at the scoreboard and see a lot of points. I really dont know," Turner said. "Were in the game at one point. We were down by like 10, and then the next thing you know it popped up to like 25 or 30." Philadelphia finishes a three-game road trip Wednesday night at Utah before heading into an All-Star break that cant come soon enough. Golden State outshot the Sixers 48. Jake Muzzin Kings Jersey. 9 per cent to 36.7 per cent and outrebounded them 60-38 despite playing without centre Andrew Bogut (left shoulder injury) and backup centre Jermaine ONeal (sore right wrist). David Lee, who had missed the past two games with a sprained left shoulder and strained left hip, had 13 points and 13 rebounds in 31 minutes. Brown said before the game that he was happy his team had a chance to quickly atone for its horrendous showing in Los Angeles. Instead, the 76ers had another embarrassing performance. As if Philadelphias miserable two-day stretch wasnt bad enough, it was capped off by one of its former draft picks. Speights spent his first 2 1/2 seasons in Philadelphia before getting traded to Memphis. He split last season between Memphis and Cleveland before signing with the Warriors as a free agent last summer. The reserve big man made his first seven jumpers, including a 3-pointer and a layup through traffic that started a three-point play, to give Golden State a 47-27 lead midway through the second quarter. "They got real hot," Carter-Williams said. On his eighth attempt, Speights missed a 26-footer that had nearly everybody in the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 waiting to roar before it caromed off the rim. Speights left to a standing ovation before the Warriors went ahead 66-33 at halftime. Some fans even serenaded Speights with chants of "M-V-P!" after he began another three-point play in the third quarter that stretched Golden States lead to 92-48. "That was so funny. I started laughing," Speights said. "At least they still have trust in me, so its always good to have fans on your side." The defeat couldve been much worse, too. Jackson put in most of his reserves before the fourth quarter, though the highlights didnt stop from one of them. Speights made a step-back jumper to put Golden State up 107-58 with 9:41 to play before leaving to another ovation with 3:02 left. Brown kept most of his starters in until the final minutes to slice the deficit down a little. "Dont anybody feel sorry for us," Brown said. "We will wake up and be (OK) tomorrow." NOTES: The Warriors swept the season series against the 76ers for the first time since the 2007-08 season. ... Sixers reserve Hollis Thompson missed the game with a sprained right ankle. ... The league announced Monday that Curry received the NBAs Kia Community Assist Award for January for his generosity and ongoing charitable efforts in the San Francisco Bay Area.
