    PHOENIX -- Chris Owings has had an odd season. Nick Dzubnar Jersey . Thrust into duty at center field when A.J. Pollock was hurt, then sidelined with foot injury, now back at shortstop as the season winds down.On Friday night, he added a little power hitting for good measure.Owings hit the go-ahead two-run home run in the Diamondbacks 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres.Thats the kind of power we see Chris display daily during BP, Arizona manager Chip Hale said. Hes got big power right-center field. That was the talk when I got here before his shoulder surgery, he really drove the ball to right-center a lot in the minor leagues. So hes starting to get comfortable and just stayed on that pitch and rode it out of here. Thats very, very impressive for a shortstop of his stature to be able to go the opposite way.Paul Goldschmidt also hit a two-run homer for Arizona. Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run home run for San Diego.Randall Delgado (5-2) pitched an inning of relief to get the victory. Patrick Corbin threw 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief before Daniel Hudson came on to get Wil Myers to pop out to first for his fifth save. Corbins performance was the latest in a series of strong efforts after he was demoted to the bullpen.He just feels like his stuff is back to where it was before (Tommy John) surgery, Hale said. He got tremendous life up to 96 today. His breaking ball, you saw Myers take the swing where he spun around. Its really good to finish this way. Hell fit right into our rotation the top two or three spots there next year.Edwin Jackson (5-7) gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings to take the loss.The crowd for the matchup between the bottom two teams in the NL West was announced at 42,651, the second-largest of the season at home for the Diamondbacks. Only the season opener drew more.By handing the Padres their 50th road loss, Arizona still has a chance to escape the division cellar. The Diamondbacks are a game behind San Diego with two to play.Goldschmidt put Arizona up 3-0 in the third inning when he hit Jacksons 2-0 pitch over the porch in right-center for his 24th home run, and 94th and 95th RBI.But Diamondbacks starter Braden Shipley couldnt hold the lead. The Padres tied it 3-3 in the fourth. Manuel Margot doubled in a run and scored on Schimpfs two-run home run.Arizona regained the lead in the sixth. With two outs, Brandon Drury doubled and scored when Owings homered on Jacksons 2-0 pitch. Owings fifth home run of the season gave the Diamondbacks a 5-3 lead.I saw him pretty good tonight, Owings said. I got some good counts before that. Got to 2-0 on that one, just got a pitch out over the plate and was able to drive it.SCHIMPFS SHOTSSchimpfs 20 home runs are third-most by a Padres rookie behind Nate Colberts 24 in 1969 and Jedd Gyorkos 23 in 2013. They are second-most by a Padres second baseman behind Gyorkos 23. Schimpf had 15 homers this season in the minors.

Western Sydney are set to get their long-desired A-League safe standing section after it was included in the final plans for Parramattas new stadium.The NSW Government on Thursday revealed the eye-catching design for the new 30,000-capacity boutique stadium to be built on the site of the Wanderers original home ground of Pirtek Stadium.The venue, also home to NRL club the Parramatta Eels, is set to be completed in 2019 and feature the steepest grandstands in Australia that will bring fans closer to the action than ever before.Wanderers chief executive John Tsatsimas said he was yet to be taken through the specifics of the plans, to be brought to life by construction giant Lendlease.But its also understood the club have been told their request for a section of safe standing seats behind goal has been approved and will be implemented.It means vocal active supporter group, the Red and Black Bloc, will become the first in Auustralia to experience a dedicated standing end. T.Y.
