Hes a great skater and we really felt we needed to add that

SAN FRANCISCO -- Jesus Guzman got to see plenty of pitches, thanks to Tommy Medica. Jaroslav Halak Jersey . That helped when he stepped to the plate a little later. Guzman, Chris Denorfia and Jedd Gyorko each homered and drove in two runs and the San Diego Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 9-3 on Saturday. Medica singled after a 14-pitch at bat, with Guzman watching intently from the on-deck circle. Guzman then homered in a four-run fourth inning. "I saw a lot of pitches and I hit it good," Guzman said. "He made the pitcher throw a lot of pitches and then he gets the hit." Hunter Pence, who reached a tentative agreement on a $90 million, five-year contract before the game, hit a two-run homer for the Giants. San Francisco had won three in a row. Eric Stults (11-13) pitched seven effective innings to win his third straight start after going 0-6 in his previous 10 starts. He also helped himself with an RBI single during a four-run fourth. "I made some adjustments and was able to follow through on them," Stults said. "Every player wants to end on a good note and sometimes you have to battle the storm a little and keep pushing through." Stults allowed three runs on seven hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out three. Yusmeiro Petit (4-1) lasted a season-low 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs and seven hits. "I felt good all the way around," Petit said. "This is a learning experience for me because when I get into big trouble I have to find a way to get out of it." Luke Gregerson pitched the eighth and Nick Vincent worked the ninth. The Padres are a game ahead of the Giants in third place in the NL West. Denorfia led off the game with his career-best 10th home run. Angel Pagan doubled to open the bottom of the first and scored when Sandoval doubled with two outs. Pence hit his 27th homer in the third to put the Giants ahead 3-1. His homer total is the highest for the Giants since Barry Bonds hit 28 in 2007. Petit retired the first two batters in the fourth and then gave up six consecutive hits, including the long at bat by Medica, before being replaced by George Kontos. "He was throwing everything," Medica said. "He kept making good pitches and I was fortunate to keep getting a piece of them until I finally got one fair." Chase Headley doubled ahead of Medica. Guzman hit his homer and consecutive singles from Alexi Amarista, Chris Robinson, making his first major league start, and Stults produced another run and ended Petits day. Stults, who retired his last nine hitters, threw a career-high 203 2-3 innings this season. "Its definitely a milestone," Stults said. "The goal was to make it through the season healthy and try to be reliable." The Padres added four runs in the ninth on Gyorkos 22nd home run, a two-run shot, and RBI singles from Denorfia and Reymond Fuentes. Gyorko has the most home runs by a rookie second baseman since Dan Uggla hit 27 for the Marlins in 2006.

Petersburg of the KHL. Belov was a free agent last summer when he signed a one-year contract with the Oilers. In 57 games this season he had one goal and six assists with 34 penalty minutes in Edmonton.EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers got bigger, faster and more experienced Tuesday by signing three free agents who general manager Craig MacTavish, say will significantly address a serious shortcoming in the teams on-ice performance. The Oilers jumped into the free agent market early by signing defencemen Keith Aulie (six-foot-six, 228 pounds) and Mark Fayne (6-3, 210 pounds) and left-winger Benoit Pouliot (6-3, 197-pounds). Two days earlier MacTavish traded lightweight forward Sam Gagner to Tampa Bay for 6-3, 203-pound right winger Ted Purcell. On Tuesday they also re-signed 6-3, 240-pound left winger Luke Gazdic, who had 15 fighting majors last season, to a two-year contract. "They all have size," stressed MacTavish. "We added a lot of size in the last two days. We havent touched the core group of guys we ended the season with and weve added what we think is a much more well rounded complement to those players with size and speed and puck pursuit. "All these moves are going to go a long ways to addressing a serious shortcoming in our on-ice performance and I think we can expect to be much better next year." MacTavish said he went into the day with two targets: Fayne and Pouliot. After a strong sales pitch he signed Pouliot to a five-year contract worth $20 million, got Faynes name on a four-year, $14.5-million deal and inked Aulie for $800,000 for one year. "We made a case for our situation here in Edmonton," he said. "It was a compelling story for them, as it was for me to tell. The situation is improving here, in spite of the fact that the results have lagged, but it was a compelling enough situation that at the end of the day we were able to quickly react to these players." Pouliot, 27, has played for five different NHL teams, including the New York Rangers last season when he collected 15 goals and 36 points iin 80 games and 10 points in their run to the Stanley Cup final. Denis Potvin Jersey. "Pouliot was our most important addition because we needed someone with speed," MacTavish said, explaining why he agreed to the $20-million deal for the player who made $1.5 million last year in New York. "We talked about size, we talked about increasing our competitiveness and hes a guy who tracks the puck very well and pressures the puck very well. Hes a great skater and we really felt we needed to add that element." Both he and Fayne said they were eager to get to Edmonton because of the direction the team appears headed in and the young talent on the roster. "I think with everything that Edmonton has gone through and everything that is now going for them, I think its a good opportunity with the young guys and everything," Pouliot told the Oilers website. "Its going to be a good fit for me." MacTavish said Fayne brings them a guy who makes simple plays with the puck, but makes them highly effectively and is a very good defender. He thinks Aulie is one of the players with the opportunity to enhance his value on a one-year contract. "He has the opportunity because of his age and his skill set to have a significant impact on our team. When you look at the make-up of our defence now it looks like an NHL defence, which it didnt always last year," he said. The one area the Oilers didnt address is centre ice where they lack size and aggressiveness. Their No. 1 centre is Ryan Nugent-Hopkins at 6-1 but only 180 pounds. "We didnt address all of our needs today," MacTavish agreed. "Ideally we would like to be able to add a centreman. We do have some depth there but they are young, developing players. "Were still hopeful we can add a centrepiece to what weve done alreadyawe will be trying to do something in that regard."
