NEW YORK -- The way Jesse Hahn pitched, his dad expected a winning effort. The RBI single? Well, that was something new. "Im surprised he didnt run to third base," Fred Hahn said outside the clubhouse. "Hes not much of a hitter." His son earned his first big league victory Saturday, throwing one-hit ball for six innings and contributing a soft single as the San Diego Padres stopped a five-game losing streak, beating the New York Mets 5-0. "Its awesome," the rookie said. "I was very relaxed. I stayed focused and stayed calm." Hahn combined with the San Diego bullpen on a two-hitter. The Mets managed Ruben Tejadas infield hit leading off the first and Lucas Dudas bloop single down the left field line in the ninth. Promoted from Double-A to make his second appearance in the majors, Hahn (1-1) struck out seven and walked three in the longest outing of his professional career. The 24-year-old righty escaped his biggest jam by fanning Matt den Dekker with the bases loaded to end the fourth. At 6-foot-5 with socks pulled up nearly to his knees, Hahn won in front of his father, sister and about 20 family members and friends. They came from Groton, Connecticut, where his high school teammate was injured Mets ace Matt Harvey. "I wanted all of those people to be here. Theyve supported me my whole life," Hahn said. Hahn missed the 2011 season after having Tommy John surgery, and Harvey watched from the dugout while he rehabs from the same procedure. Hahn said Harvey sent him a text message before the game wishing him good luck. After Hahn was done, Harvey texted congratulations. "I know he had a lot of people here from Connecticut," Padres manager Bud Black said, "and he responded." Hahn made his major league debut June 3 against Pittsburgh, and was chased after giving up two home runs in 3 2-3 innings. This time, Hahn was effective with his arm and bat. Hahn blooped an opposite-field single to right with two outs in the fourth for his first hit since high school. Cameron Maybin easily scored, and was trotting back to the dugout when plate umpire Dan Bellino flipped him Hahns souvenir. "Not your prototypical line drive, bullet, missile you like for your first hit," Black kidded. Maybin later showed off some alert baserunning, winding up all the way at third on an infield grounder. Yonder Alonso broke from third on the bouncer and eventually was tagged out, but he prolonged the rundown long enough to allow Maybin to keep running. Chase Headley hit a solo homer, an RBI single and scored twice. Alonso hit two doubles. Padres relievers Dale Thayer, Joaquin Benoit and Huston Street each pitched an inning, sending the Mets to their ninth loss in 11 games. "The way they threw the ball, mixed in with some poor at-bats, and they were able to throw up a lot of zeros," Mets star David Wright said. Zack Wheeler (2-7) remained winless in eight home starts since last August. Hes averaging an NL-high 18 pitches per inning, and threw 100 in five busy innings. San Diego began the day last in the majors in batting average and runs, and just three starters were hitting over .215. The Padres totalled seven runs during their recent skid. This was the first time in 14 games they scored more than four runs in a game. NOTES: Hahn was promoted from Double-A San Antonio and LHP Troy Patton was put on the DL. ...

.C. -- Carter Ashton had a pair of goals and added an assist as the Toronto Marlies downed the Charlotte Checkers 5-2 on Saturday in the American Hockey League.A former Miami Dolphins lineman identified as one of the targets of harassment in the racially charged bullying scandal said Saturday that he has no problem with the team in a statement released by his agent. Andrew McDonald, Player A in an NFL-ordered report released Friday by lawyer Ted Wells, said in the statement that he is "disappointed his name has become associated" with the revelations about the reported harassment. The report of Jonathan Martins allegations that he was harassed by teammate Richie Incognito, states that Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner didnt attempt to stop the behaviour and even took part in some of the taunting of Player A. McDonalds agent, Brett Tessler, said in the statement to The Associated Press that McDonald has "been a member of another organization since last season and is trying to focus on his future. When Ted Wells approached Andrew at the end of the investigation, Mr. Wells already had all the information contained in the report that he had gotten elsewhere. "While Andrew cant speak for other players involved in the report, he personally has had no problem with the Miami Dolphins organization and has the highest opinion of Coach Turner both personally and professionally and feels terrible about the way their relationship has been portrayed in the report." McDonald, 25, is currently with the Carolina Panthers. Several people interviewed told investigators that Turner gave PPlayer A, a male sex doll as a gag gift around Christmas 2012.dddddddddddd Turner told investigators he did not remember the incident, but investigators said they did not believe him. When asked if McDonald felt he was bullied or harassed, Tessler said the statement speaks for itself. The 6-foot-6, 310 pound McDonald was an undrafted rookie out of Indiana who spent two seasons on the Dolphins practice squad before being released in final cuts last August. He signed with Carolinas practice squad in October and recently signed a "futures contract" with the Panthers The NFL report stated there was a "pattern of harassment" committed by at least three players and extended to two lineman and an assistant trainer, all targets of vicious taunts and racist insults. It state that guard John Jerry and centre Mike Pouncey followed Incognitos lead in harassing Martin, who left the team in October. They threatened to rape his sister, called him a long list of slurs and bullied him for not being "black enough." The other harassed player, the report said, was "subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching," while the assistant trainer, who was born in Japan, was subjected to racial slurs. "It was not difficult to conclude that the Assistant Trainer and Player A were harassed, but the questions raised in Martins case were more complex, nuanced and difficult," the report says.
