MIAMI -- Jeff Mathis stood at the plate confronted by five infielders and knew what he had to do: get the ball past them. C. J. Beathard Jersey . He did, and then some, hitting a grand slam with one out in the ninth inning Sunday that lifted the Miami Marlins over the San Diego Padres 6-2. With the score 2-all and the bases loaded, the Padres deployed a five-infielder, two-outfielder defence for Mathis. He pulled a 1-0 pitch past everyone and into the Padres bullpen. "I appreciated being in that position and enjoyed every minute," Mathis said. "Its one of those ideal situations. You really want to get the job done. It was a bunch of fun." The 3,000th homer in the franchises 20-year history came from an unlikely source. Mathis is a career .195 hitter, and this year hes batting only .129 after missing almost all of spring training because of a broken collarbone. The victory added momentum to the Marlins turnaround of late. While they still have baseballs worst record, they went 15-10 in June, a huge improvement on their 14-41 record in the first two months. "After April and May, to do what we did in June is great," manager Mike Redmond said. "Are we happy? Yes. Are we satisfied? No." Logan Morrison walked to start the ninth-inning rally against Tyson Ross (0-4), who looked back on that moment as pivotal. "That leadoff walk killed me," Ross said. "It cant happen in the ninth inning, or any inning really." Morrison took second on a single by Marcell Ozuna, then advanced to third on a flyout. Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs was intentionally walked to load the bases, and Mathis followed with his second home run of the year. It was also Mathis second career grand slam, and his first walkoff homer. Gleeful teammates greeted him at home plate, and he joined the scrum leading with his left shoulder. "I knew I was going to get pounded on, so I was getting ready for it," he said. "The adrenalin was going pretty good." Nathan Eovaldi threw six shutout innings for Miami, and Steve Cishek (2-4) pitched a hitless ninth. The Marlins made the most of their seven hits. "We gave ourselves a chance, got some big hits and had some big at-bats, something we werent doing early in the season," Redmond said. "I just felt like we were going to win that game in the ninth." Padres pinch-hitter Carlos Quentin tied the score with a two-run homer in the seventh off Chad Qualls following a four-pitch walk to Yasmani Grandal. Eovaldi, making his third start since coming off the disabled list, struck out none but departed leading 2-0. "When I was attacking, they were putting the ball in play and the defence was there," Eovaldi said. He missed the first 2 1/2 months of the season because of right shoulder inflammation. The Padres Andrew Cashner, plagued lately by poor run support, allowed five hits and two runs in six innings. "Today was probably the best Ive thrown all year," Cashner said. "I couldnt get a couple of plays to go my way, but overall I think I did really well." Cashner displayed his all-around ability at the plate and in the field. He bunted for a hit to lead off the third inning, and in the fifth he went to his knees to field a tapper by Eovaldi, then rose, ran and slid into first for an unassisted putout. "I probably made the best play of my career," Cashner said. Quentin, held out of the starting lineup to give him a breather, batted for Cashner in the seventh and hit his ninth homer on the first pitch from Qualls. Quentin had been 0 for 6 as a pinch hitter this season, and it was his third career homer in that role. "Any time a guy hits a pinch-hit home run, that shocks you a little," Redmond said. "So I think it took us a couple of innings to get over that." NOTES: Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko (strained right groin) plans to take part in drills Monday but is expected to be sidelined at least a few more days. ... As part of the Marlins celebration of its 20th anniversary season, several ex-players attended the game, and Jeff Conine threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Charles Johnson. ... The Padres fell to 5-1 under manager Bud Black on his birthday. He turned 57 Sunday. ... RHP Jason Marquis, scheduled to start Mondays series finale, is 7-6 with a 5.67 ERA in 23 games against the Marlins. Joe Williams Womens Jersey . Leave it to Matt Niskanen, the newly proclaimed Eddie Haskell of the Washington Capitals. Solomon Thomas Youth Jersey . -- Max Domi scored twice and set up two more as the London Knights toppled the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 6-4 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.49ersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Solomon-Thomas-49ers-Jersey/ . Two weeks after suffering a concussion, Foles will start in place of Michael Vick, who is out for the second time this season with a hamstring injury.DETROIT -- Even by the Detroit Pistons recent standards, this was an abrupt change. Detroit fired coach Maurice Cheeks on Sunday after less than a year as coach, with the Pistons languishing well below .500 despite off-season moves aimed at putting the struggling franchise back in contention. Detroit is 21-29, and although the Pistons still have a decent chance to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, their new roster has performed erratically. "This was a difficult decision for the organization to make but we needed to make a change," team president Joe Dumars said in a statement. "We have great respect for Maurice and appreciate his hard work." A person with knowledge of Detroits plans said assistant John Loyer will take over as interim coach. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced an interim coach yet. The Pistons havent made the playoffs since being swept in the first round in 2009 -- in Michael Currys only season as their coach. Since then, Detroit has gone through two seasons under John Kuester and two under Lawrence Frank. After neither of them could make any real progress, Cheeks was brought in as Detroits ninth coach since the 1999-2000 season. In addition to hiring Cheeks last off-season, Detroit signed forward Josh Smith and traded for point guard Brandon Jennings, trying to bolster a roster that already included young big men Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe. But the mix has been uninspiring for the most part. The Pistons have had problems defensively and have struggled to close out games in the fourth quarter. The poor attendance thats become commonplace at The Palace hasnt really improved -- and Detroits 11-15 home record hasnt helped. "Our record does not reflect our talent and we simply need a change," Pistons owner Tom Gores said Sunday. "We have not made the kind of progress that we should have over the first half of the season. This is a young team and we knew there would be growing pains, but we can be patient only as long as there is progress." Detroit is only a half-game out of the final playoff spot in the East, but thats largely because so many teams in the conference are having similar problems. The Pistons are only three games better than they were after 50 games last season. Cheeks became the first coach to leave or be fired after 50 games or fewer with an NBA team since Bob Weiss, who coached only 30 games forr Seattle in 2005-06, according to STATS. Ahkello Witherspoon Youth Jersey. That does not include interim coaches. "The responsibility does not fall squarely on any one individual, but right now this change is a necessary step toward turning this thing around," Gores said. "I still have a lot of hope for this season and I expect our players to step up. I respect and appreciate Maurice Cheeks and thank him for his efforts; we just require a different approach." The Pistons have won four of six, including back-to-back blowouts at home against Brooklyn and Denver on Friday and Saturday. They host San Antonio on Monday night, and the team has not made any announcement about who will coach that game. Cheeks previously coached Portland and Philadelphia, a team he won an NBA title with as a point guard. The Pistons gave him his third shot to be an NBA head coach in June. Gores was in attendance at a recent game and said he thought the team was better than its record. "Im not satisfied. Our job is to make sure that our players are at their maximum," Gores said after that Feb. 1 game against Philadelphia. "Im not satisfied with the job Im doing. Im not satisfied with the job anyone is doing." At that point, speculation centred around the upcoming trade deadline and the possibility that Detroit might shake up its roster again. Now, the Pistons are hoping another coaching change can improve the franchises outlook. Detroit made the conference finals six straight years from 2003-08, but the teams fall was swift after that, and rebuilding has been difficult. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Pistons championship in 2004 -- and the atmosphere at The Palace could hardly be more different. "Were focused on how to make our players the best," Gores said earlier this month. "I dont think weve done our best job of making sure they are at their best. They are working at 100 per cent, but these are young men who need a lot of preparation." The Pistons became the third major pro team in Detroit to make a coaching or managerial change in the past six months. Jim Leyland of the Tigers stepped down and was replaced by Brad Ausmus after last season, and the Lions fired Jim Schwartz in late December, eventually replacing him with Jim Caldwell. So Ausmus, who has yet to manage a game, is now the second-longest tenured manager or coach of the citys four major pro teams. Yahoo Sports first reported Cheeks firing.
