SAN DIEGO -- Of course Cory Spangenberg dreamed as a kid of playing major league baseball. http://www.hockeycapitalsnhl.com/authentic-alex-ovechkin-capitals-jersey/ . "I never got into detail about hitting the walk-off home run. Just incredible," Spangenberg said after getting another big league milestone out of the way. Spangenbergs first big league home run came on the first pitch he saw as a pinch hitter with one out in the ninth inning and gave the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Two days into his big league career, Spangenberg, hitting for Cameron Maybin, connected against Brad Ziegler (5-3), sending a drive to the home run porch down the right-field line at Petco Park. "Unbelievable. I mean, just to pinch-hit for your team in the ninth when you have other great players on the bench and to come through and get the walk-off W for the team is an unbelievable feeling," the 23-year-old said. Spangenberg made his big league debut on Monday, hitting a two-run single and making two nice plays at third base. "This guy comes as a hitter. He showed up tonight. That was great," manager Bud Black said. Black said hitting coach Phil Plantier "felt good about the at-bat with Spangy. Cam didnt have great numbers against Ziegler. Phil through Zieglers type of pitching was pretty good for Spangy. Spangys sort of a slasher, likes the ball a little bit out, a little bit down and it worked out." Spangenberg said Plantier "trusts me. "I mean, he went up to me and said, Im going to tell Buddy youre the man. I told him, Im ready to go." Spangenberg hasnt stopped smiling since he got to San Diego. "This unbelievable so far. Im just trying to soak everything in and enjoy the moment and hopefully it lasts for a long time." Ziegler said he tried to throw down and away "and I threw it mid-thigh on the inner third and it was an easy pitch for him to spin on." Kevin Quackenbush (3-3) pitched the ninth for the win. The Padres had runners on first and third and no outs in the eighth before Evan Marshall struck out the side. Rookie Odrisamer Despaigne again pitched well at Petco Park but didnt get the decision. The Cuban right-hander allowed one run and four hits in seven innings. He retired 11 straight after Miguel Monteros RBI single in the fourth. The Diamondbacks had three of their four hits against Despaigne in the fourth. Cliff Pennington and David Peralta singled before Mark Trumbo struck out. Montero then singled to centre to bring in Pennington. Despaigne has a 2.11 ERA in seven home starts while his ERA in six road starts is 4.45. Arizonas Wade Miley had a similar line to Despaigne, allowing one run and seven hits in seven innings. San Diego tied it in the fifth when it got three hits against Miley, including Alexi Amaristas run-scoring single to left. In his last five starts, Miley is 0-2 with a 2.20 ERA after getting just six runs of support. Ziegler said it stunk to have the game end like it did. "Wade pitches his butt off to get us there and Evan was incredible to get out of the eighth. Its just frustrating. I just didnt make a good pitch." HOMER BALL Spangenberg said he got his home run ball from a couple of season ticket holders in exchange for a couple of autographed balls. "Thats great that they could do that. I really appreciate them doing that. If they need anything else I can get something," Spangenberg said. LATE HEROICS It was the fourth win in the last at-bat in the last six games for the Padres, including three straight games Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: Reinstated OF A.J. Pollock (fractured right hand) and INF Chris Owings (strained left shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list. Padres: Among their many moves was recalling INF Ryan Jackson from Triple-A El Paso and placing him on the 60-day disabled list with a right wrist strain. UP NEXT Diamondbacks: RHP Josh Collmenter (9-7, 3.94 ERA) looks to beat Padres again. Hes 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA in two starts against San Diego this year. Padres: RHP Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.37 ERA) has not factored in the decision in his two starts since coming off his second stint on the disabled list. http://www.hockeycapitalsnhl.com/authentic-dale-hunter-capitals-jersey/ .C. -- After turning Tobacco Road into "Raleigh Top," Tennessee is headed to the round of 16. http://www.hockeycapitalsnhl.com/authentic-alexander-ovechkin-capitals-jersey/ .C. -- Kevin Harvick won his first career pole at Darlington Raceway on Friday as he looks to chase his first Southern 500.Ahead of his bout with Robbie Lawler at UFC 167 in November, Rory MacDonald was forced to field yet another question about potentially fighting then-welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre. Despite almost exhausting all methods of saying no by this point, the B.C. native once again shot down the notion of facing his teammate. However, MacDonalds reluctance appeared to raise the ire of Tyron Woodley, who was preparing for a bout with Josh Koscheck. "Ive asked to fight tough guys because one day I want that belt Georges St-Pierre has in front of him," Woodley said at the UFC 167 pre-fight press conference. "Rorys like, I wont fight him. If he doesnt want to fight him, then he needs to get out of the way. Guys like me will fight him." Though the St-Pierre issue is now moot due to the Montreal fighter vacating the belt and taking a leave of absence, Woodleys words almost seem prophetic as he is set to face MacDonald in the co-main event of UFC 174 in Vancouver this Saturday. MacDonald admittedly isnt a fan of Woodleys tactics, but said he wasnt bothered by the former NCAA Division I wrestlers verbal potshot last fall. "I think it was his way of trying to put a stab at me, but also, maybe he doesnt want to fight me," MacDonald said during a phone interview with UFC.ca. "I think he knows in the back of his head that Im a dangerous fighter and he doesnt want to deal with me on the way to a title shot. But I dont really get too stressed about what people have to say. Im just focused on my own path, what I need to do and thats all. "Hes got his own thing and its got him to where he is. Everyones got to do their own thing. Im just focused on myself. I wouldnt go about it the way he does and the way he speaks sometimes, but it doesnt bother me. Its just the way he is." Regardless of Woodleys jab, MacDonalds focus remains locked on earning a shot at current welterweight titleholder Johny Hendricks. Though his bout with Woodley remains pivotal in the 170-pound division, the winner could be leapfrogged in the pecking order by the victor of Julys battle between Lawler and Matt Brown. As always, simply getting the job done woont be good enough. http://www.hockeycapitalsnhl.com/authentic-brett-connolly-capitals-jersey/. MacDonald knows he needs to make a statement against Woodley. "I want to have the greatest performance of my career so far," said MacDonald. "I want to be at my best every fight. I think doing that will get me where I want to be. If I just keep improving every fight, keep on impressing and growing as a martial artist, people will recognize that. "(Fans can expect) a technical and precise performance, but at the same time, exciting and dynamic." Stylistically, MacDonald and Woodley make for an exciting fight on paper — especially considering how much theyve both grown as fighters in recent years. Though MacDonald, 24, is eight years younger than Woodley, 32, he began competing in mixed martial arts in October 2005, four months before the St. Louis fighter made his respective debut. Woodley will always have his wrestling credentials to fall back on, but has recently emerged as one of the most dangerous strikers in the UFCs 170-pound division. Not only has he put his heavy hands to good use in wins over Koscheck and Jay Hieron, his ability to quickly cover distance is nothing short of breathtaking. His most recent outing saw him pick up a second-round TKO victory over Carlos Condit when the former interim welterweight champ suffered a knee injury due to Woodleys onslaught. MacDonald said he has the tools necessary to neutralize Woodleys strengths, but opted not to get into details. "Youll see that night," MacDonald said. "Im not going to tell you how I technically beat him, but Im confident in my solutions to those problems." As far as MacDonald is concerned, the real question is whether Woodley can handle what he brings to the table. "I try not to worry about my opponent," MacDonald began. "I have to perform in front of any kind of opponent. It really doesnt matter what style they are. I just feel I have the solutions to beat anybody in the welterweight division right now. "I think hes fought some good guys and well-rounded fighters, but I really feel like hes fighting the best on Saturday night. I dont think hes ready for it."
