Game 2: San Diego - Aaron Harang (3-0, 1.50) Chicago - James Russell (1-1, 7.20) (Sports Network) - After getting shut out by Chicago in the series opener on Monday, San Diegos offense had an extra day to work out the kinks due to last nights postponement because of inclement weather. Starter Dustin Moseley hopes the time went well spent as he takes the hill in the opener of todays doubleheader that will close out a three-game set between the Padres and Cubs at Wrigley Field. These two clubs combined for just one run and 10 hits through 10 innings in Mondays opener, which featured winter-like conditions. Tyler Colvins pinch- hit double scored Geovany Soto in the extra frame for the Cubs, who have now alternated wins and losses in their past eight games and seek to win two straight for the first time since April 4-5. It marked the fourth time the Padres were shut out this season, but it was the first one that game without Moseley getting the start. The 29-year-old righty has lost all three of his starts this season despite a 1.83 earned run average because his club has been outscored, 7-0, in that span. Moseley has yet to allow more than two earned runs in any start and yielded just one run on seven hits and two walks over 6 2/3 innings of work versus Houston on Thursday. He has lost both of his road starts this year despite allowing just two earned runs over 13 2/3 innings. Its frustrating, but you go out there and do your job and leave it up to the hitters, Moseley said. Moseley will face the Cubs for the first time. James Russell was originally set to oppose Moseley last night, but he will be pushed back to the nightcap. Matt Garza instead takes the hill for Chicago in the first game still searching for his first victory with the Cubs. He is 0-2 with a 6.27 ERA in three starts this year after coming over in a trade with the Rays this past offseason. Garza dropped his second start in a row on Friday, yielding five runs on seven hits over six innings at Colorado while getting no run support yet again. He has allowed 10 runs over back-to-back starts, but the Cubs have also been outscored 11-0 in that span. I know its a long season and its gonna turn around, said Garza. All I can do is keep battling and keep going out there and giving it my best. The 27-year-old righty faced the Padres for the first time in his career on June 24 of last year and got the win after being charged with three runs over eight innings. While Garza is still winless with the Cubs, Aaron Harang will try to remain undefeated in a Padres uniform when he takes hill tonight for the fourth time this season in the second game. The right-hander is 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA through his first three starts, allowing three earned runs over 18 innings. He went six innings for a third outing a row on Friday in Houston, giving up a run on three hits with eight strikeouts. I felt really good, I hit my spots and I felt I could throw my slider in any count, Harang told San Diegos website. Its been a matter of focusing and keeping the ball down. The 33-year-old former Reds hurler is 10-8 with a 4.51 earned run average in 24 career starts versus the Cubs. With Andrew Cashner still out with a right shoulder injury, Russell will make his second career start for Chicago. After 59 career relief outings, Russell made his first career start on April 12, but was shelled for five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits over just 1 2/3 innings of a loss. I got some unlucky breaks, Russell said. A couple of mishaps got in the way. Russell has made two relief appearance since and hasnt allowed a hit over 1 1/3 frames in that span. Chicago was swept by San Diego in a four-game series at home last year, getting outscored 20-9. San Diego has alternated wins and losses in its past seven games overall.

With three weeks remaining, the battle for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff berth is on.NEWARK, N.J. -- Add Nate (The Great) Marquardt to the list of fighters who want a piece of English middleweight Michael Bisping. Chael Sonnen is in fighting limbo following a positive drug test and a guilty plea on federal money-laundering charges in the U.S. but that hasnt stopped the 185-pound contender for calling out Bisping. Brazilian Vitor Belfort has also asked for a cage date with the brash Englishman. Marquardt, who fights Dan Miller on Saturday at UFC 128, also has his eye on Bisping. "I would love to fight that guy, just to punch him in his mouth and shut him up," said the normally reserved Marquardt. "That would be nice. Hes an ass, hes a total punk. No respect." Marquardt was disgusted by Bispings victory celebrations after the fight with Jorge Rivera at UFC 127 in Australia. Irate at pre-fight videos making fun of him from the Rivera camp, Bisping walked over to the Rivera corner and spat after knocking out Rivera. The English fighter later apologized for getting carried away and said he was spitting on the floor to show what he thought of Riveras coach rather than at him. "Thats so disrespectful," said Marquardt. "Thats not what a martial artist does. Thats not what a sportsman does." --- Eddie Wineland says he will test Urijah Fabers chin when they face off in the bantamweight co-main event of UFC 128.

I put him on his ass four or five times on this fight, same thing with Tapia. ... I possess a lot of power for a 135-pound guy and Urijahs going to feel it. "He may have a chin made out of granite. But we are going to find out." Faber, a former WEC featherweight title-holder, laughed when he head Winelands words. "This chin speak for itself. Look at that bad dog," Faber said with a smile, pointing to the prominent cleft in his chin. "The No. 1 search on Google images for butt-chin right here. "I think Ill be all right."
