LOS ANGELES, Calif. Steven Stamkos Lightning Jersey . - Eric Stults is having quite a month of August and going against his old team didnt hurt either. The left-hander allowed one run on four hits in five innings of the San Diego Padres 4-1 win over the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. "Im just executing pitches a little bit better," Stults said. "Early on I was giving up a lot of extra-base hits, a lot of home runs, whereas now Ive limited the damage more to just singles." Stults improved to 3-0 with a 1.46 ERA in four starts this month while picking up just his second road win of the season. "He knows how to feed off hitters aggressiveness," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "Now you see hes pitching free and easy. Hes pitching with a lot of confidence." Stults (6-13) struck out five and walked one. The Dodgers came into the game with a 20-10 record against left-handed opponents, but Stults did just enough against the team he pitched for from 2006-09. "He made a conscious effort to tweak his delivery a little bit, especially out of the windup, and a little minor adjustment out of the stretch — sort of an upbeat, momentum-building delivery," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Thats helped his conviction with the fastball." Kevin Quackenbush pitched the ninth to earn his first major league save. He started a 1-2-3 putout to end the game. "Its a pretty awesome feeling," he said. "I got a couple in the minor leagues, but this first one in the big leagues is always going to be special to me. I was a little more nervous than I have been in previous outings." Alexi Amarista had two hits, drove in a run, walked and stole a base, Rymer Liriano went 2 for 3 with a walk and two runs scored, and Seth Smith went 2 for 5 for the Padres, who pounded out 11 hits in ending a two-game skid. Roberto Hernandez (7-9) gave up four runs and eight hits in five innings. He struck out two and walked two in his 200th career start and first as a member of the home team at Dodger Stadium. He was acquired from Philadelphia earlier this month. "I didnt feel it was my best," Hernandez said through a translator. "I got behind in the count. I just wasnt able to get in a rhythm. I was getting outside of the zone a little bit." Just like a night earlier, the Padres took an early 3-0 lead. In the second, Amarista singled in their first run. Stults followed with a bases-loaded RBI single, and Liriano scored on a throwing error by left fielder Scott Van Slyke, who twice bobbled the ball trying to control it. The Dodgers closed to 3-1 in the third on Matt Kemps sacrifice fly. Yangervis Solarte made it 4-1 with a sacrifice fly in the fourth. HITTING LA Amarista raised his batting average to .333 in 12 games against the Dodgers this season. Hes even better at Dodger Stadium (.365) with two doubles, a homer and nine RBI in 21 career games. Smith boosted his average to .407 with a double, four homers and five RBI in 11 games against L.A. STEAL THIS Dee Gordon stole his 57th base in the eighth, moving into sole possession of seventh on the Dodgers single-season steals list, passing Steve Sax who had 56 in 1983. MAYBIN RETURNS Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin was reinstated from the restricted list, having served a 25-game suspension for testing positive for an amphetamine. He had said his failed test was a result of a change in the medication he was using to treat attention deficit disorder. Maybin entered as a defensive replacement in the ninth. To make room on the roster, the Padres optioned infielder Jace Peterson to Triple-A El Paso and designated pitcher Bobby LaFromboise for assignment. TRAINERS ROOM Padres: Closer Joaquin Benoit has been bothered by shoulder problems, and Black said it makes sense to consider putting him on the DL. "We still have another day or two to assess this and see if Joaquin responds to treatment," he said. "If we can hold off on that, then we win." Dodgers: Pitcher Zack Greinke has experienced elbow discomfort similar to what he had last season. A MRI didnt show any damage, but the team wants to be cautious. "Its something that comes and goes," Greinke said. "I expect to pitch at a hundred per cent level, but I dont expect to feel a hundred per cent." ON DECK Padres: Tyson Ross (11-11, 2.70 ERA) takes the mound in the series finale. The right-hander has 13 starts of six or more innings pitched while allowing one run or fewer earned runs, tied for the most such starts with Adam Wainwright of St. Louis. Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw (14-3, 1.86) starts in place of Greinke, who will be pushed back to Saturday against the Mets, with Dan Haren going on Friday. Slater Koekkoek Lightning Jersey . He was 40.

The stress, the waiting, the whispers about whether he doped during his stellar cycling career, all of it ended when - after nearly two years - federal prosecutors closed an investigation of him last week without bringing any charges.MILWAUKEE -- Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens insisted that Jeff Green take open shots when he had them. The teams leading scorer clearly got the message. Green scored 19 of his 29 points in the second half, leading the Celtics to a 102-86 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. "He passed one up in the first half that I was mad at him about," Stevens said. "That was kind of the gist of our halftime talk. We cant pass up open looks because thats what they were giving us. He really didnt pass any others up. He missed his first one of the third quarter and then really shot it well the rest of the night." Green shot 11 of 22 from the field and 6 of 7 from the free-throw line as the Celtics broke open a tight game in the fourth quarter. "I am confident in every shot I put up," Green said. "Whenever it leaves my hand, I am confident that it will go in. I kept shooting, and they started to fall. That is my game, driving to the rim." Stevens said Green has saved his top performances for weekday games on the road. "Thats when hes played his absolute best," Stevens said. "He hit shots today that were really good shots and then he made some tough ones late. He got himself going by getting to the basket and by shooting it off screens." Kelly Olynyk added 14 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double-double for the Celtics. "They were helping a lot on Jeff in the lane in the fourth quarter and I was able to get a couple of open shots as well," Olynyk said. "We pushed the ball in transition and got some easy baskets. Jeff hit a bunch of big-time shots for us down the stretch." The Celtics used a 12-4 run to start the final quarter to break things open. Green had seven points during the spurt and 11 overall in the quarter, while Olynyk scored 10 after Boston entered the fourth clinging to a 70-68 lead. Jared Sullinger added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Boston, and he drew praise, along with Olynyk, from Stevens. "They can handle the ball," he said. "They can do all kinds of things. It was good to see them both with double-doubles. I was pleased with how those two young guys played." Brandon Knight had 22 points for Milwaukee, which also got 17 pointts from Gary Neal and 16 points from John Henson, who left late in the game with a foot injury. Andrei Vasilevskiy Jersey. . "We went flat. Our energy went down and they took advantage of that," Knight said of the Bucks fourth-quarter performance. The Celtics scored 32 points on 21 Milwaukee turnovers. "We had more turnovers than assists. Its tough to win like that," said Bucks centre Zaza Pachulia, who had eight points and eight rebounds starting in place of injured Larry Sanders. Bucks coach Larry Drew was disappointed about his teams lack of energy in the game-changing fourth quarter. "(The Celtics) played (Sunday) night, but they seemed to be playing with more energy than we did," Drew said. The Celtics held a 49-46 advantage at the half despite shooting just 40 per cent. Brandon Bass led the way with 12 points. Knight had 14 first-half points for the Bucks, who shot 44 per cent. The Celtics had 11 second-chance points compared to just one for the Bucks. It was back and forth through the first two quarters with 10 lead changes and six ties. Boston held a 26-24 lead after the first quarter, sparked by Bass, who had all 12 of his first-half points in the quarter. "He just manhandled us down on the block. Hes a bruiser," Drew said. "He loves to catch the ball down low. We didnt accept the challenge on Bass." Boston shot 48 per cent for the game, compared with 43 per cent for Milwaukee. Notes: Sanders was diagnosed with a fractured orbital bone in his right eye. He was injured when he was elbowed by James Harden in Saturdays game against the Houston Rockets. Hes expected to be out at least through the All-Star break, Drew said. ... The Bucks also were without Caron Butler (ankle), Ersan Ilyasova (back) and O.J. Mayo (illness). Luke Ridnour (back) and Ekpe Udoh (ankle) returned to the lineup. ... Celtics G Rajon Rondo sat out after logging a season-high 37 minutes Sunday. Hes been limited from playing in back-to-back games as he recovers from ACL surgery. "I think hell be playing back-to-backs very soon," Stevens said. ... Celtics starting G Avery Bradley (sprained right ankle) also was out of the lineup. Hes scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
