SAN DIEGO -- The Padres have always valued Alexi Amaristas defensive versatility. Micah Hyde Jersey . This time, the diminutive shortstop flashed a big bat. Amarista had three hits, including a two-run homer, to lead San Diego to a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Amaristas two-out homer in the sixth inning off A.J. Burnett (8-17) followed a walk to Jake Goebbert and put the Padres ahead 4-3. Amarista, who doubled in the second and singled in the fourth, fell a triple short of the cycle when he grounded out in the eighth. "It was a surprise about the home run," the 5-foot-6 Amarista said through a translator. "I had a lot of confidence in myself in that situation. I wasnt trying to hit the home run, but I got a good swing on it." Amarista, acquired by the Padres in a May 2012 trade with the Angels, has already equaled or surpassed his career highs in plate appearances, runs, hits, home runs and RBIs. And with San Diego shortstop Everth Cabrera having missed 53 games due to injuries, Amarista has filled in nicely for the former All-Star. "The last month, hes been as strong as any shortstop in the National League," San Diego manager Bud Black said. Burnett, who took his major league-leading 17th loss, was not happy with his outing. "Im not going to make excuses," he said. "I messed up. I walked a guy, and the curveball (to Amarista) wasnt down enough." San Diego won its second straight game after dropping nine of 11. Ian Kennedy (11-13) pitched six innings for the win. The right-hander allowed three runs and three hits with seven strikeouts and four walks. Kennedy had lost his previous two starts, giving up double-digit hits in both outings. Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer in the fifth to give the Phillies a 3-2 lead. Dominic Brown had a solo homer in the second. Philadelphia, held to one hit by Andrew Cashner in a 1-0 loss Monday night, managed just five hits against Kennedy and three relievers. Kevin Quackenbush allowed an RBI single to pinch-hitter Darin Ruf in the ninth before closing out his fourth save. The Phillies have lost seven of 11. Burnett, who has gone 2-8 in his last 10 starts, gave up five runs -- four earned -- and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out four to pass Phillies Hall of Famer Robin Roberts for 43rd place on the career list with 2,361. TRAINERS ROOM Phillies: SS Jimmy Rollins took infield practice but is still not expected back before the weekend. Rollins has been out since Sept. 8 because of a strained left hamstring. Padres: OF Seth Smith did not start due to a sore right hamstring, although he walked as a pinch hitter. Smith tweaked his hamstring while making the final out on Monday. The left-handed-hitting Smith isnt scheduled to start Wednesday night against Phillies lefty Cole Hamels. UP NEXT Phillies: Hamels (8-7, 2.51 ERA), a San Diego native, has had great success when facing his hometown team, with an 8-2 record and an ERA of 2.21 in 15 career starts. Padres: LHP Eric Stults (7-16, 4.49) will try to avoid tying Burnett for the major league lead with 17 losses. JUST SHORT AGAIN With Amarista missing the cycle, the Padres and Miami Marlins are the only teams in the majors that havent had a player accomplish the feat. It was the 358th time the Padres have had a player fall one hit short. ANOTHER LOSING SEASON The loss dropped Philadelphia to 69-82, ensuring the clubs second consecutive losing season with 11 games remaining. IT NEVER RAINS IN CALIFORNIA With a rare summer shower that moved through San Diego in the late afternoon, although it missed Petco Park, the Padres issued a thunder alert. Early-arriving fans were cautioned to take cover until the alert was lifted 45 minutes before the game. Nick OLeary Jersey . According to Dave Stubbs of The Montreal Gazette, preliminary talks have begun between Markov - an unrestricted free agent this summer - and general manager Marc Bergevin. Corey Brown Jersey . Gough finished in fourth, 0.433 seconds behind American Erin Hamlin, who took the bronze medal at the Sanki Sliding Center in Rzhanaya Polyana. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c-66-bills-mike-tolbert-jersey.aspx .com) - NFL owners have unanimously approved the sale of the Buffalo Bills. SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Two substitutes, two goals. Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal can, it seems, do no wrong at this World Cup. He sent on replacements Leroy Fer and Memphis Depay in the second half of the match against Chile on Monday and they scored both goals in a 2-0 win that confirmed the Dutch as Group B winners with a maximum nine points. "It is luck," Van Gaal himself said about his super substitutions. "Just luck." But it was more than that. Fer, listed by FIFA as 6 feet 2 inches (188 cm) tall, scored with a header a minute after coming on as a substitute for the 5-foot-6-inch (171 cm) Wesley Sneijder. "I know Leroy Fer is tall compared with our opponents. I know he can head the ball well," Van Gaal said. Then there was Depay. "We analyzed that Chile in the last 15 minutes gives away more room," Van Gaal said. "If you have a creative player in at that moment, you have the chance to use that space." Manchester United, which hired Van Gaal to restore its fortunes after a disastrous season by the clubs lofty standards, must be delighted even if it has to wait a bit longer for him to join them after the World Cup. Chile, one of the most attacking and attractive teams at the World Cup, had no answer at the Itaquerao Stadium, especially not without midfielder Arturo Vidal who watched from the bench. "I played the best team I had," said Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli. Juventus star Vidal had knee surgery before the tournament and had a sore Achilles tendon but said a day before the match he felt fit and ready to play. Both teams had already advanced to the second round, but Chiles first loss of the tournament consigned it to second place in Group B and a meeting with host Brazil in Belo Horizonte. The Dutch next travel to Fortaleza to play Group A runner-up Mexico in the round of 16 on June 29. Chile began with its trademark fast, attacking style while the Dutch, with a five-man defence, looked content to sit back, absorb the pressure and break out with swift counterattacks. "We gave nothing away and fought like lions," stannd-in captain Robben said. Cordy Glenn Jersey. "Orange lions." The match marked the first time at this World Cup the Netherlands had played in its national colour, but the change of jerseys didnt change its fortunes. Vidals absence deprived Chile of midfield creativity and it struggled to break down the well-drilled Dutch defence. Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez tried to fill the gap left by Vidal, but couldnt find a way through. He came closest to scoring in the second half with a powerful shot that Jasper Cillessen easily blocked at his near post. "Im very proud of this team," Robben said. "If you see how we fought here today. We were right on top of them and gave them no chances." The Netherlands was playing without suspended captain and striker Robin van Persie and was also missing defender Bruno Martins Indi, who suffered a concussion in the teams last match, a tough 3-2 victory over Australia in Porto Alegre. No problem for inspirational coach Van Gaal, who pulled a tactical surprise with his starting lineup -- reverting to the 5-3-2 formation he began with against Spain and posting veteran forward Dirk Kuyt, in his 99th international, at left back. "I enjoyed it," Kuyt said. "I never played in this position but the coach told me a couple of weeks ago that it could be a possibility during the tournament and I told him that I would be ready for it and I was very happy I get the chance. I think it went very well and hopefully I will get another chance." Then came Van Gaals substitutions. Fer headed in powerfully and Depay doubled his World Cup tally in stoppage time. Robben delayed his cross from the left cleverly until the PSV Eindhoven striker arrived at the far post -- also delaying his run by a split second to shrug off his marker -- to tap in an inch-perfect pass. "He is a huge talent and great for the future of Dutch football," Fer said of Depay. Robben said that after three wins out of three, the Dutch squad is hungry for more. "We can enjoy this fantastic performance, but it must not stop here," he said.
