Jamie Carragher believes it will only be a matter of time before Steven Gerrard enters management, despite revealing the former Liverpool captain has turned down the chance to take over at Milton Keynes Dons. Gerrard emerged as a shock contender to succeed Karl Robinson at the Sky Bet League One club after announcing his departure from MLS side LA Galaxy last week.Carragher struck up a close friendship with Gerrard during their years together at Liverpool and suggested the 36-year-old may have taken the role if the offer had come six months down the line. I just dont think he fancies it. Hes only just got back, he was in the States and his family didnt go over there fully, so I think it would be a big move to then move down to Milton Keynes, Carragher told Monday Night Football during a Twitter Q&A. It maybe came a bit too early, if it was six months or 12 months down the line then maybe there would have been a good chance of it happening.I dont think he is fully ready, hes still got to get coaching badges, thats not to say he couldnt do the job, but I think he maybe wants to get more experience. Sky Sports Black Friday sale Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price! I think its great that is making noise that he wants to go into management. I think if he would have taken the job it would have been a good decision in terms of the club.Sir Alex Ferguson always said dont pick your club, pick your chairman and I think that chairman (Pete Winkelman) gave Karl Robinson plenty of time, a good five or six years.He gave Roberto Di Matteo and Paul Ince a chance and their first jobs in football. He certainly seems a chairman that gives a young manager a job, so I think it may have been more the chairman than the club that would have enticed him to go there.Hes turned that down now, but the fact that he has spoken to a club means more clubs will be showing an interest and I think it will only be a matter of time.Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price.

Logan Morrison drove in two runs in Seattles big sixth inning, Young pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners beat the Houston Astros 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep.SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres rotation is living up to expectations. Eric Stults and three relievers combined on a four-hitter and Everth Cabrera hit a go-ahead triple to lead the Padres to a 3-1 victory against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night. The Padres have the chance to sweep the series on Sunday, a week after taking two of three from the Detroit Tigers. "From the start, us as a starting five, we felt like we could match up with anybody in baseball," Stults said. "We felt pretty good about things." San Diego has won seven of 10, thanks mostly to the rotation. "Right now were in a nice run of starting pitching," manager Bud Black said. "Theres been some solid work by our starters. Starting pitching is so important to a teams success. Theyre doing their part." The Giants lost their third straight game. It was the first time in nine games the Giants werent involved in a one-run decision. Stults (1-2) kept the already struggling Giants off balance and largely off the base paths, allowing one run and three hits in six innings, with two strikeouts and no walks. Michael Morse homered off Stults on a 2-0 pitch leading off the fifth, his third. Other than that, all the Giants got off the lefty were singles by Joaquin Arias and starter Tim Hudson. Stults was backed by some nice defence, including centre fielder Alexi Amaristas diving catch of Hunter Pences blooper for the second out of the first inning. "I was able to keep my pitch count down, and I think it was just getting strike one," Stults said. "Theyre a pretty aggressive team and I had a hunch they would be swinging early. I was able to execute some pitches down in the zone. I was able to stay away from the heart of the plate." Stults had thrown only 85 pitches and wanted to go back out for the seventh inning, but Black chose to send out Nick Vincent, who struck out Buster Posey, Morse and Pablo Sandoval. Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his first save. The Giants have scored only three runs in their last 28 innings. "The only way to get hits is tto swing the bat," Morse said.dddddddddddd "Right now, I dont think were pressing. I dont think we are trying to do anything out of the ordinary. I just think we hit a rough spot. Our team is too good for us to be stuck in this for too much longer." Still, manager Bruce Bochy is calling off batting practice for Sunday and plans to sit Sandoval, whos hitting only .171. "We have so many good hitters struggling right now," Bochy said. "We didnt create any chances, really. We didnt get many good swings off. Thats what disappointed me tonight. Youd like to get some decent swings." San Diegos Yonder Alonso hit an RBI single in the second. Cabreras triple to right-centre with one out in the fifth scored Amarista, who reached after his bunt single landed between the mound and second base, and advanced on Hudsons error on a pickoff attempt and Stults sacrifice bunt. Cabrera was thrown out trying to score on Will Venables grounder to first. The Padres added on in the eighth when Will Venable doubled to left, advanced on Grandals fly ball and scored on a suicide squeeze bunt by pinch-hitter Chris Denorfia. Hudson (2-1) allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings, struck out four and walked none. NOTES: Hudson joins Grover Cleveland Alexander (six games in 1923) and Tiny Bonham (four games in 1944) as the only starting pitchers in the last 101 seasons to open a season by throwing four games of at least seven innings while not issuing a walk. ... Hudson has set the franchise record with 30 innings without a walk to open a season. ... Posey and Morse were back in the Giants starting lineup after getting a day off. Both pinch-hit in Friday nights 2-1 loss. .. Padres 3B Chase Headley was back in the starting lineup after missing three games with a strained right biceps. ... Morses homer was just the eighth allowed by the Padres this year, tied with Atlanta for lowest in the majors. ... The series concludes Sunday when San Franciscos Tim Lincecum (0-1, 7.20) is scheduled to face Padres lefty Robbie Erlin (1-1, 3.18). Lincecum no-hit the Padres at Petco Park on July 13. ' ' '
