Jr. have given the San Diego Padres a whole new dynamic.Machado got his first two hits with San Diego and Tatis almost got his first big league home run ... ore-jersey , settling for his first double and first run as the Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Friday night.Ian Kinsler homered for San Diego, which is 2-0 for the first time since 2011.The Padres came within three outs of their second straight shutout before Evan Longoria homered leading off the ninth against Phil Maton. Kirby Yates came on and earned his second straight save the hard way, loading the bases with one out before striking out Gerardo Parra and Brandon Belt.The 17 scoreless innings to start the season by San Diego are the most in team history, topping the 14 to open the 2008 season. Left-hander Joey Lucchesi (1-0) allowed three hits in 5 1/3 innings, struck out seven and walked one.Machado went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts in his Padres debut on Thursday. He struck out in his first two at-bats Friday night before lining a single to left off Derek Holland in the fifth. That advanced Wil Myers, who scored on Franmil Reyes‘ sacrifice fly to make it 4-0. Machado singled again in the seventh off Mark Melancon.“Feels great, get it over with,” Machado said. “Even better with that W. It was a good day all around.”Manager Andy Green said Machado might have been over-aggressive on opening day.“I saw more enthusiasm out of Manny when Fernando gets hits than when he gets hits,” Green said. “He probably didn’t have the five at-bats he envisioned to start his Padres career, but after he struck out before the two hits he got, he was dancing in the dugout with Franmil between innings. He knows he’s good. He knows he’s fine. Good to get a couple of hits I’m sure but there was no panic there Ferguson Jenkins Jersey , no concern by anybody.”The signing of Machado to a $300 million, 10-year contract early in spring training has energized a fan base desperate for a winning team. The Padres also promoted top prospect Tatis, who had two hits on opening day and just missed hitting his first home run when he doubled off the wall in center in the second Friday night to move Eric Hosmer to third. They both scored on Manuel Margot’s single. Tatis slid home and celebrated with Hosmer.“I show my emotions and that’s how I feel,” said Tatis, whose father played in the big leagues.Did he think his fly ball was gone? “No,” Tatis said. “I was just glad I was on base.”Machado has been impressed with Tatis.“He’s an athlete, plays the game the right way as well,” he said. “He brings a lot to this ballclub. We just need him to keep doing what he’s doing, and if he can do that we’re going to be a very good ballclub. He brings it every day. That’s what you need on your ballclub. Everybody else in here is feeding off of that energy and as a ballclub that’s what we need.”Kinsler homered leading off the third. He walked to begin the fourth and tried to score on Myer’s double to right but was thrown out, a call that was upheld after review.Holland (0-1) allowed three runs and four hits in four innings, struck out five and walked two.“There were just a couple pitches that got away ... ore-jersey ,” Holland said. “You’ve got to give the credit to those guys. I made some good pitches on a few guys. The one Tatis hit off the wall, you’ve got to give the guy credit, he went out and got it. He’s a big league hitter. He’s up here for a reason.“He’s carrying himself very well,” Holland added. “Give the kid some credit. He came in opening day, did his thing. We’ve just got to keep doing what we can to figure him out right now. I don’t think any of us got to really see him in spring.”UP NEXTGiants: Dereck Rodriguez, who was 6-4 with a 2.81 ERA as a rookie in 2018, is scheduled to start Saturday night. He had a 1.29 ERA and 13 strikeouts in two starts against San Diego.Padres: LHP Nick Margevicius is scheduled to make his big league debut. The 22-year-old was 10-8 with a 3.60 ERA in 23 appearances in 2018, including 22 starts, between Low-A Fort Wayne and Single-A Lake Elsinore. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Khris Davis has become known as Oakland’s other superstar “KD.”The Athletics slugger is having a special season right next door to where Kevin Durant led the Golden State Warriors to a second straight NBA championship two months ago.Davis is on such a home run streak, he has considered the idea he might hit 50.It’s right within reach at the pace he’s on after two straight 40-homer years in his first two seasons with the Athletics.“It’s been on my mind for a little while Ryan Rua Jersey ,” Davis said. “It’s just another number, another benchmark.”Yet he is far from concerned with his individual total — because that will mean little if he doesn’t help Oakland end a three-year postseason drought following last-place finishes in the AL West each of the past three years.Davis leads the majors with 39 home runs and ranks second in RBIs with 103 behind Boston’s J.D. Martinez.Davis is a big reason the A’s are on such a remarkable roll in the second half: Oakland is 17-1-2 in its past 20 series dating to June 15 and 1 1/2 games back of the first-place Astros as the clubs begin a three-game series at defending World Series champion Houston on Monday night.“He just wants to play baseball,” A’s pitcher Edwin Jackson said. “You have a couple of those dudes sometimes that just want to go out, don’t really like the attention, but they get it because it comes with the job, but if they can go out and play and produce and do well without the attention I’m sure they would prefer it.“It’s like a quiet storm, quiet storm. Oh, man, it’s fun watching him doing what he does — it’s pretty fun watching him put it all together, too. He’s a great person, a great teammate. I couldn’t be more happy for him Drew Robinson Jersey , I wouldn’t wish it on a better person.”What has been most impressive to many around him is how Davis continues to make himself better each year, working the count and driving in runs other ways.As his home runs and RBIs mount, Davis is even getting MVP support from the A’s, even though he’s batting just .255 and primarily plays designated hitter.“It’s special. Just appreciative and I try not to make it a big deal,” Davis said.His unassuming, quiet demeanor reflects to teammates how focused he is on being the best. Davis’ recent gesture to a boy in remission from a rare cancer told them so much about his caring nature, too. On Aug. 20, Davis had 10-year-old Anthony Slocumb sign his jersey , then hit a towering home run that hit the window high above the elevated seats in left-center that night against the Texas Rangers.“That’s who he is,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “He’s beloved by everybody in this clubhouse from the clubhouse kids to trainers, I mean there isn’t a group here that he’s (not) endeared to. He doesn’t want to it in the spotlight ... ore-jersey , he just wants to be one of the guys.”Davis takes more pride in being that positive example for teammates than he does in clearing the fences — though that helps his credibility.“Just being a good teammate, and if things aren’t going my way I’m still pulling for everybody,” Davis said. “I just want the team to win all around. It’s been a trait since I was young. That’s the reason why we play is to win the ballgame, not necessarily to do good for ourselves but for the team.Melvin has credited Davis for becoming a more all-around hitter, not just clobbering home runs.Davis received a $10.5 million, one-year contract during the offseason, more than doubling his salary after he beat the team in arbitration the previous winter.He hit a career-best 43 home runs in 2017, connecting on the season’s final day to surpass the season high he set the previous year for Oakland. The 30-year-old Davis needs one more homer to join Jimmie Foxx from 1932-34 as the only players in Athletics history with three straight 40-homer seasons.Davis’ 85 homers the past two seasons were second in the majors only to Giancarlo Stanton’s 86.His teammates can’t always believe what they’re seeing from Davis, which is why they’re pushing for his inclusion in MVP talks.“He’s a joke. He hits balls that left-handed pull hitters don’t hit to right field,” pitcher Brett Anderson said. “The ball comes off his bat different than pretty much everyone I’ve ever seen. He should definitely be in the equation because it’s fun to watch him on a daily basis. I’m glad I’m on this side and not the other side.”
