PHOENIX -- Tony Campana was the unlikely hero and Brad Ziegler gained a measure of redemption, even if he didnt look at it that way. The light-hitting Campana singled home Martin Prado from third base with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. Ziegler (3-1), who gave up the deciding grand slam in Tuesday nights 7-5 Milwaukee victory, retired all four batters he faced, three by strikeout, to get the victory. In the ninth, Prado doubled with one out to deep left centre off Brandon Kintzler (1-3), advanced to third on David Peraltas groundout, then scored when Campana slapped one up the middle. Campanas first career walk-off hit raised his batting average to a whopping .150. "It was cool. I dont think Ive ever done it in the minor leagues, either," he said. "If Im here, Im happy." Campana made the big league club out of spring training but, after going 1 for 30 at the plate, was sent down to Triple-A Reno on May 1. He was called back up last Friday. Campana may not hit well but he is fast. "Actually it couldnt have worked out better to have him up there," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said, "just because we had a guy on third base and just his wheels, it can pressure them, makes them come in and cheat in. He put the bat on the ball." Ziegler said he wasnt thinking about retribution when he came out of the bullpen. "I dont know what the TV broadcasters got going. Theyre probably bringing up yesterday a lot," he said, "but were not. Were just watching the game flow. With nine righties in the (Brewers) lineup, I knew there was a good chance Id pitch." Khris Davis hit a three-run homer for the Brewers runs. Arizonas Chris Owings, hit below the back of the head by a pitch from Kyle Lohse on Tuesday night, was a home run shy of the cycle. He was robbed of a fourth hit by a diving stop by first baseman Mark Reynolds. Jonathan Lucroys grand slam on Tuesday came one pitch after reliever Evan Marshall hit Ryan Braun with a pitch and was ejected. Wednesdays game had no such drama. "We didnt do a lot offensively," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "We just had the one inning with Davis hitting a three-run homer. Besides that, we didnt swing the bats very well" Starters Wade Miley of Arizona and Matt Garza of Milwaukee left without a decision after 7 2-3 innings. Miley gave up three runs and five hits, striking out eight with no walks. Garza allowed three runs -- two earned -- and seven hits. He struck out four without a walk. Miley retired 10 straight, striking out Ricky Weeks and Braun to start the eighth, but walked Lucroy and Carlos Gomez. That ended Mileys night. Ziegler came in and fanned Aramis Ramirez. Garza retired 15 of 16 before Owings one-out double in the eighth. Paul Goldschmidts groundout moved Owings to third, but Brewers setup man Will Smith came on to strike out Miguel Montero and end the threat. Miley had fanned four straight when Lucroy led off the fourth with a single. Gomez, back after sitting out two games with a sore hamstring, moved Lucroy to third with a single, extending his hitting streak to 14 games, matching his career-best. Arizona got two in the Brewers sloppy first inning, one unearned. Gerardo Parra tripled down the right field line, then Owings singled him home. Goldschmidt followed with a grounder to the second baseman Weeks, whose errant soft toss to shortstop Jean Segura covering second left both runners safe. Montero followed with a grounder to short for what looked to be an inning-ending double play. Segura threw to Weeks for the force at second, but the throw to first bounced in the dirt and the runner was safe, allowing the second run to score. In the third, Owings tripled off the centre field wall and scored when Goldschmidt singled for his 52nd RBI. The Diamondbacks will try to salvage a split of the four-game series Thursday. NOTES: Gibson says his scathing comments on Brauns PED use in 2011 season had nothing to do with Braun getting plunked Tuesday night. ... In the series finale on Thursday, Milwaukee will start Yovani Gallardo (4-4, 3.51 ERA) and Arizona goes with Chase Anderson (5-1, 3.23). Tomas Nosek Jersey . Span, Danny Espinosa and Adam LaRoche had two hits apiece as Washington won the final two games of the series. The Nationals improved to 3-7 against Atlanta. They increased their division lead over the Braves to 1 1/2 games. Marc-Andre Fleury Jersey .

Curlings version of the Ryder Cup will introduce a new format beginning with the 2015 event, set for Jan. 8 to 11 in Calgary, as itll be Team Canada taking on Team Europe this season and in the 2017 event, while itll be Team Canada against Team World (including the U. James Neal Jersey . "Its not done, but its a huge step," Hannover general manager Dirk Dufner said. Poor defending allowed the visitors to score in the second minute, when Leon Andreasens header from Christian Panders cross sent the ball inside the far post. Nate Schmidt Jersey . The last team in the NBA that will have any sympathy for the Thunder is the Minnesota Timberwolves, who are showing signs of putting everything together after two years of devastating injuries.The Montreal Canadiens, behind a 35-save performance from Dustin Tokarski, squeezed out a 3-2 overtime win over the New York Rangers in Game Three, cutting the Rangers lead in the series to two games to one. Tokarski, a somewhat controversial choice -- with his 10 games of NHL experience and all -- to replace an injured Carey Price in Game Two had a night to remember, turning back a Rangers team that was dominating play from the get-go, outshooting the Canadiens 14-4 in the first period and 37-25 overall. The Rangers had 58.2% of the shot attempts during 5-on-5 play. The winning goal, at 1:12 of overtime, came on a rebound that was kicked out by Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist and hit Canadiens LW Alex Galchenyuk in the neck, bouncing back into the Rangers net. It was Galchenyuks only shot attempt of the game in his second game of this years playoffs. The games last three goals all came on unusual bounces. The Canadiens took a 2-1 lead with 3:02 remaining when Daniel Brieres attempt to stuff a rebound off the end boards was knocked in by a sliding Ryan McDonagh. Then, with the Rangers goaltender pulled in the final minute, Dan Girardi sent a puck towards the net, it deflected off Rangers LW Chris Kreider, then off the heel of Canadiens D Alexei Emelin, earning a tie with 29 seconds left in regulation. Galchenyuk wasnt the only Canadiens player to score his first of the postseason in Game Three. Veteran D Andrei Markov scored Montreals first goal. The Rangers first goal was knocked in by Carl Hagelin, his fifth of the playoffs, tying him with Martin St. Louis and Brad Richards for the Rangers team lead. St. Louis had a game-high 11 shot attempts in Game Three, including a couple of Grade A chances, including a onne-time shot on a 2-1, which immediately preceded Hagelins goal, and was stopped by Canadiens D Josh Gorges.dddddddddddd. Rangers D Kevin Klein doesnt get the tough matchups, but he had success in his role in Game Three, on the ice for 24 shot attempts for and six against (80.0%) during 5-on-5 play. The Rangers had 50.0% of the even-strength shots when Klein was off the ice. Klein and partner John Moore started every one of their shifts in the offensive or neutral zone. Canadiens C Lars Eller was the opposite to Klein, on for 23.1% of the shot attempts at 5-on-5 and Eller didnt attempt a shot the entire game, in 15:02 of ice time. Montreals win makes for a much more interesting series, to be sure. Game Three brought out some hostility that hadnt appeared earlier in the series. Canadiens LW Brandon Prust laid out Rangers C Derek Stepan (who returned to the game) with a late hit and later fought Derek Dorsett, but it wasnt just Prust. There were more extra pokes and physical confrontations throughout the game. Canadiens RW Brendan Gallagher and Rangers D Ryan McDonagh waged quite a battle throughout the game. While hostility between the clubs can make for a more interesting series, the fact that the series is 2-1 in favour of the Rangers, rather than 3-0, is reason enough to believe that the Canadiens have a chance to make something out of this situation. They probably cant count on having Tokarski get the better of Lundqvist in the goaltending matchup too often, but that got the Canadiens through Game Three and thats enough to keep their hope alive.
