SAN DIEGO -- Luis Perdomo sent a message to the San Diego Padres: He wants a spot in the rotation next season.Perdomo ended a three-start losing streak, Travis Jankowski and Alex Dickerson homered, and the Padres beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-1 Sunday for a four-game split.A 23-year-old right-hander who had never pitched above Class A before this season, Perdomo (6-7) also beat the Diamondbacks at Arizona on July 4.Somebody is hitting him because the numbers say so, Arizona manager Chip Hale said. But thats twice now that hes got us.Perdomo (6-7) took a shutout into the seventh and wound up allowing an unearned run and five hits in seven innings.He wants feedback. He wants to be better. He doesnt want to just be here, Padres pitching coach Darren Balsley said. He is very easy to work with and he has made huge strides in everything hes done.Arizona didnt have a runner in scoring position until the seventh, and Phil Gosselin got there on a throwing error by Perdomo. Brandon Drury, who had two of Arizonas five hits, singled in Gosselin to cut the Diamondbacks deficit to 7-1.Alexei Ramirez added a two-run double in the eighth.Thats my best outing, for sure, Perdomo said through a translator. I was just focusing on attacking when I got up there. ... Im really just trying to do the best work I can, and pitch as well as I can.Hale said Perdomos sinker was the difference.He does a good job with that, Hale said. It comes in to the right-handers and away from the lefties.Braden Shipley (2-3) gave up seven runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in a matchup of the teams with the poorest records in the NL West.I felt my stuff today was the best it had been all year, said Shipley, a right-handed rookie. It was unfortunate what happened today, but it will turn around.Jankowski, who has reached in a career-best 20 games, hit his second home run of the season in the second inning for a 2-0 lead. Adam Rosales had an RBI triple in the fifth and scored on a double by Perdomo, the first RBI by the pitcher in 25 career big league at-bats.Thats my main objective, to get on base, Jankowski said. I know if I get on base we can get things rolling. Weve got a really good offense and it all starts with someone getting on base.Dickersons leadoff homer in the sixth and Brett Wallaces RBI double made it 6-0 and chased Shipley. Patrick Kivlehan singled in a run against Dominic Leone.Im kind of just relaxed up there, said Kivlehan, who homered in his major league debut on Saturday. Im just in one of those modes where I just want to help the team win any way I can.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: RHP Rubby De La Rosa (right elbow) will resume a throwing program, with the team seeking to build him up to 70 pitches for some September starts.Padres: CF Jon Jay (broken right arm) took some swings off the tee on Sunday. He could return to the club in early September.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (4-2) starts Monday in the opener of a four-game series against visiting Atlantas.

DAKAR, Senegal -- Former British police officer Ben Hooper hopes to make history by swimming every mile of the Atlantic Ocean from Africa to South America. After more than three years of preparation, he set off on Sunday.The 38-year-old walked down a beach in Dakar and into the Atlantic Ocean, launching a swim for 1,635 nautical miles, or nearly 2,000 land miles (3,200 kilometers), from Senegal to Brazil.This is for my daughter, said Hooper, who filled a water bottle with sand to keep for the 8-year-old who he said inspired the swim. Its been a long time coming.Flanked by two boats and a crew of less than a dozen, Hooper aims to be the first person to swim every mile of the Atlantic Ocean from continent to continent, stepping on land again in March.He says he trained three years as he gathered a crew for the Big Blue, the main boat on which he will eat and sleep when he is not swimming for about eight hours each day through waters infested with sharks and jellyfish.Water has loomed large in his life.I nearly drowned when I was 5 in a swimming pool in Belgium, Hooper told The Associated Press. Ever since ... Ive had this affinity with water. It was the calmest Ive ever felt.Hooper said he had a bout of depression about 3 1/2 years ago and decided to turn his life around for his daughter. So he looked to water.Nobody had swum a full ocean. More people have landed on the moon than have tried this, so at that point I thought maybe this is my calling, said Hooper. If I can inspire myself, other people and raise mooney for charity, why not do it?Inspired by British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Hooper said he hopes to motivate others, especially children, to swim.ddddddddddddFunding for the expedition has taken time, and the launch was set back several times as various crew members dropped out and the boats faced mechanical issues.This will be a major achievement overall, said Nigel Taylor-Schofield, the captain of Big Blue. If anybody can accomplish this, it would be Ben. He is very determined.The crew, including a paramedic, will track the miles, and Hooper has said if he gets to Brazil with the help of currents, he will swim until he fulfills the full Atlantic mileage.The challenges, be it marine life, dehydration, and more, will be vast, but Hooper says his biggest fear is letting the team and his daughter down. Hell listen to a playlist on customized earphones that he said will include eurotrash music, Eminem and The Scripts Hall of Fame. Hooper will also wear various gear that helps camouflage him from sharks, and a tracking device so supporters can follow his nearly five-month swim online.Around 10:30 a.m. on the beach outside the Monaco Plage hotel in Dakar, Hooper and the crew were ready.See you in Brazil, he said, before eventually swimming off into the sunlit waters toward his goal.---http://www.swimthebigblue.com/--Follow Carley Petesch on Twitter at www.twitter.com/carleypetesch Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
