WASHINGTON -- Cameron Maybin didnt need to slide to make it safely into second base. Brian Propp Flyers Jersey . He did it anyway, and in grandiose style. Welcome back to the majors, Mr. Maybin. Maybin contributed two hits as Ian Kennedy and the San Diego Padres celebrated the return of their centre fielder with a 4-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. Maybin ruptured his left biceps in spring training and missed the Padres first 25 games. He played 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso before his call-up on Sunday. The 27-year-old Maybin hit a shot down the third-base line in his first at-bat, sliding in with a double. "Its fun being back in the bigs, being out there with all these guys who I love playing with," Maybin said. "Ian pitched his butt off. Fun being behind a guy like that who can command the zone like he does." Command indeed. Kennedy (2-3) gave up three hits, struck out nine and walked none in seven innings. He retired 16 straight batters at one stretch. After giving up back-to-back doubles to Anthony Rendon and Jayson Werth in the first inning, Kennedy allowed only one more hit. Huston Street closed for his ninth save in nine chances. "First inning, youre kind of like a lot of pitchers, youre trying to feel whats going to work for that moment," Kennedy said. "I feel like I just got ahead of guys more often." Kennedy also received strong support in the field. First baseman Yonder Alonso made two outstanding plays and Will Venable robbed Werth of a potential extra-base hit with a diving catch in the right-field corner. "It kept fading away. I thought it was a double, for sure," Kennedy said. "As soon as he dove, extended, it was a beautiful play." It was reversal from Saturday when the Padres had as many errors (three) as hits in a 4-0 loss. "What a difference 24 hours makes," San Diego manager Bud Black said. "I liked the way our guys bounced back. They put yesterday behind them and we won a ballgame on the road against a good team." It was a tough day all around for Washington. Outfielder Bryce Harper was put on the disabled list with a thumb sprain. Starting pitcher Taylor Jordan woke up with a fever and laboured through four innings with low velocity. Ross Detwiler (0-1) and Aaron Barrett were ineffective in relief. "I dont know if its the flu or what," Nationals manager Matt Williams said of Jordan. "There was some question as to whether he would even start. Gave him a bag of fluids and he ate something this morning, but fastball velocity was way down, weak out there. So he gave us what he could today." Nate McLouth hit his first home run for the Nationals. Starting in left field for Harper, McLouth entered the game with an .097 batting average. Trailing 1-0 in the fourth, the Padres tied it when Chris Denorfia walked, Yasmani Grandal doubled and Jedd Gyorko had a sacrifice fly. The go-ahead run came an inning later off Detwiler as Everth Cabrera singled, stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Denorfias single. Singles by Venable, Maybin and pinch-hitter Nick Hundley loaded the bases in the sixth inning. After Barrett fanned Kennedy for the second out, he walked Cabrera on four pitches to force one run home and walked Denorfia on a 3-2 pitch. Afterward, it was time for the Padres to celebrate the win and Maybins return. "Hes obviously a very dynamic player, capable of doing everything well on the field," Denorfia said. "More than anything we really missed him in the clubhouse. Were really happy to have him back." NOTES: To make room for Maybin, the Padres sent pitcher Kevin Quackenbush to Triple-A El Paso. ... Nationals RHP Doug Fister made his first of two scheduled rehab starts at Single-A Potomac on Sunday, throwing 59 pitches, including 42 strikes. ... Washington will have days off before and after a two-game series at Houston that begins on Tuesday when LHP Gio Gonzalez (3-1, 3.00) faces RHP Jarred Cosart (1-2, 6.12). ... San Diego travels to San Francisco for a three-game series starting Monday with RHP Tyson Ross (2-3, 3.16) opposing LHP Madison Baumgarner (2-2, 3.14). Jakub Voracek Jersey .

South Korea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng grabbed Sunderlands winner with two minutes left at the Stadium of Light, with Chelsea having been taken to extra time after conceding an 88th-minute equalizer by Fabio Borini. "Football is about scoring goals and winning matches, not being the best team on the pitch," said Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, whose largely second-string side wasted a number of chances after Frank Lampard bundled in the opening goal in the 46th. Like Chelsea, City rested several key players but still had enough to see off second-tier Leicester 3-1, with Dzekos brace adding to the opener scored by Aleksandar Kolarov from a superb free kick. Dzeko has been given limited playing time in recent weeks because of the brilliant form of fellow strikers Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo. With Aguero sidelined for at least a month with a calf injury, Dzeko is set to see more action over the busy Christmas period. In making it to the semifinals for the third time in five years, City took its goal tally for the season to 75 from 25 games. "It is an important competition," City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "It is important to win every game you play in and to get to the final at Wembley would be wonderful for the supporters." The only negative of the evening for City was the sight of right back Pablo Zabaleta hobbling off in the first half, clutching his right hhamstring. Wayne Simmonds Flyers Jersey. Citys other right back, Micah Richards, is already out injured. City hasnt reached the League Cup final since winning the competition in 1976. It lost the FA Cup final to Wigan last season. The other quarterfinals take place on Wednesday, when managerless Tottenham hosts West Ham and Manchester United visits Stoke. Chelsea was minutes away from a place in the last four after Lampard was on the right end of a goal-line decision. The veteran midfielder was famously denied a legitimate goal in a World Cup second-round match between England and Germany in 2010 when his shot hit the bar and bounced over the line, only for officials to miss it. Goal-line technology was introduced by FIFA largely as a result of that incident. On this occasion, referee Anthony Taylor pointed to his watch to indicate that the Goal Decision System -- used on Tuesday for the first time in an English cup match -- had approved the goal after the ball had rolled in off a combination of Lampard and the retreating Lee Cattermole. Chelsea has had problems finishing off opponents this season and Samuel Etoo was guilty of wasting a great chance before Borini drove a shot through David Luizs legs on the goal-line after Jozy Altidores initial shot was saved. Sunderland, which is last in the Premier League, was the better team in extra time and after Ki had a header brilliantly saved by Mark Schwarzer, the South Korean cut inside and buried a low shot into the corner just as penalties were looming. "We always wanted to go through in this competition but it wasnt a priority," Mourinho said.
