PHOENIX -- Tommy Medica hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth inning, Eric Stults pitched six effective innings and the San Diego Padres beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Tuesday night. Stults was sharp early before giving up a couple of runs that allowed Arizona to tie the game at 3-all. Medica had a run-scoring single in San Diegos three-run third inning and lined a solo homer to left off Evan Marshall (2-1) in the eighth to put the Padres back up. Kevin Quackenbush (1-1) pitched 1 2-3 innings for his first win in the majors after giving up a walkoff homer the night before and Huston Street worked a perfect ninth for his 15th straight save. Wade Miley had a career-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings and Martin Prado homered for Arizona. Stults had a rough go of it his last outing, failing to get out of the fourth inning after giving up five runs and six hits in a loss to the Chicago Cubs. The left-hander had the Diamondbacks guessing through the early innings Tuesday night, keeping them off-balance with a big-breaking curveball that dipped into the 60s with an upper 80s fastball. Prado, who has battled knee problems this season, got a pitch he liked in the second inning, sending a towering solo homer over the wall left, his first in 210 at-bats, dating to last season. Miguel Montero hit a run-scoring double in the sixth inning and Stults was lifted after Cliff Pennington led off the seventh with a double on a ball right fielder Chris Denorfia appeared to lose in the lights. Gerardo Parra tied the game at 3-all by lining a run-scoring single to left off Alex Torres. Stults allowed three runs and six hits and walked four -- one intentional. Miley had a solid outing his last time out, allowing three runs in seven innings in a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. The left-hander spotted his fastball well and had the Padres swinging and missing -- except in the third inning. Everth Cabrera lined a one-out single to start the inning, then Denorfia, Chase Headley and Medica followed with run-scoring singles, putting San Diego up 3-1. Miley was good after that, ringing up three more strikeouts on called third strikes to become the first Arizona left-hander with at least 11 strikeouts since Randy Johnson on Aug. 22, 2008, against Florida. Miley allowed three runs and eight hits.

The Miami Heat responded to both. Shane Battier went 4 for 4 from 3-point range, including a critical one from the right corner with 1:33 remaining, and the Heat wasted most of what was a 25-point lead before holding off Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls 107-95 on Tuesday night in the season-opener for both teams. "You never know what to expect when youre trying to keep the main thing the main thing, and thats the game," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "But you cant deny the emotions and what a special moment it was for everybody in the organization because we know how difficult that was and how harrowing that was last season. So it was great to actually get the win after that to cap off a very good night for the Miami Heat." LeBron James had 17 points, eight assists and six rebounds for Miami, which got its 2013 NBA championship rings and raised the franchises third banner in a pregame ceremony. The Heat trailed 9-2 early, then outscored Chicago 52-24 over the remainder of the first half. Rose finished with 12 points in 34 minutes in his first game since a serious knee injury in April 2012. Carlos Boozer had 31 points and seven rebounds for Chicago, which got within eight points in the final minutes. But Battiers right-corner 3 -- a staple for the Heat -- snuffed out the comeback, and Miami wasnt in trouble again. "Were not trying to pull close. There were a lot of corrections that we have to make," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "It always comes back to the same thing -- our defence and our rebounding. And if we could have taken better care of the ball early on, we would have been in position to win down the stretch." Chris Bosh scored 16 points, Battier finished with 14 and Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers each had 13 for Miami, which had seven players score in double figures. Ray Allen and Norris Cole each scored 11 for Miami. Rose shot 4 for 15 for the Bulls. "I think we had a lot to do with it," Allen said. Said Rose: "If anything, Im disappointed in the loss. My performance, I can easily change that by making shots and keep down the turnovers." By halftime, Miami was rolling, up 54-33 -- putting the game on pace for a 108-66 final, which would have exactly matcched the score of the game in 2006 when Chicago came into Miami and spoiled the Heat franchises first ring night.dddddddddddd. Not this time, though the Bulls made it plenty interesting down the stretch. A layup by Butler with 5:34 left got the Bulls within 15, and after he missed the ensuing free throw, the rebound made its way to Kirk Hinrich -- who made a 3-pointer that cut Miamis lead to 91-79. Hinrich fouled out on the ensuing Miami possession. Wade scored seconds later, the Heat followed that with a stop, and James simply overpowered Luol Deng in the post on the next trip to restore the 16-point lead. But again, the Bulls werent done, cutting the lead to 95-87 on a drive by Boozer with 2:47 left. They would get no closer, and James raved about Miamis balance. "Its a team game," James said. "Thats what this team is put together for." Roses start was promising early, with two drives for impressive scores. The Bulls led 15-10 when Rose checked out for the first time with 3:36 left in the opening quarter. When he returned, the lead was gone for good. The Heat outscored the Bulls 13-3 in Roses first stint on the bench, turning a five-point lead into a five-point deficit, and by then the Heat were off and running. Over a 4-minute stretch of the second quarter, everything changed. Roses surgically repaired knee might be fine, but in the basketball vernacular, Cole broke the ankles of the 2011 NBA MVP -- starting a run that turned what was a tight game into a romp. Cole faked out Rose on the dribble, causing the Bulls star to tumble over, and the Heat reserve connected on an 18-foot jumper that sent the Miami bench leaping from its seats. "There was a lot of emotions going on," Cole said. That began the 17-0 run. The Bulls missed nine straight shots, Rose getting blocked by Bosh on one, and the Heat went to work. Miami shot 7 for 10 during the burst, which was capped by a driving layup by James with 4:23 left, and suddenly the Heat led 41-20. It was a runaway, and became a grind-it-out win. NOTES: Going back to last seasons Eastern Conference semifinals, Miami has won five straight games over the Bulls. ... James is 31 points shy of 25,000 for his career, if including regular-season and playoff games. He would be the 28th player in NBA history to reach that milestone. ' ' '
