CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Nobody in baseball likes to use injuries as an excuse, including Bryan Price. Darnell Savage Jr. Super Bowl Jersey . That being said (one of Prices favourite phrases), the first-year Cincinnati Reds manager almost cant wait until Saturday. That is when he plans to write pitcher Mat Latos name into the starting lineup, all but giving Price his first look at the team he hoped to be managing when he took the job last October. Latos and first baseman Joey Votto of Toronto completed rehab assignments with Triple-A Louisville on Monday. Votto, sidelined since May 16 with a quadriceps strain in his left knee, was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday nights game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Latos, who hasnt pitched all year after having surgery on his right elbow last October and his left knee on Valentines Day, is tentatively scheduled to start Saturday in Milwaukee. "This is as close to being whole as weve been all year," Price said Tuesday. Votto was the 12th player placed on the disabled list by the Reds this season. Catcher Devin Mesoracos two trips meant those 12 players had made a total of 13 appearances on the DL. Last season, 11 Reds players made a total of 15 appearances. Votto was set to bat third Tuesday night. He hadnt played since going on the disabled list May 21, retroactive to May 16, with an injury to the same knee that required two operations in 2012. The Reds went 11-12 without the 2010 NL MVP, who was hitting .257 with six home runs and 12 RBIs in 39 games. Votto spent Sunday and Monday with Louisville, going 2 for 6 with two strikeouts and grounding into a double play in two games at Pawtucket. "I feel good," Votto said. "Im looking forward to playing. I hold myself to a high standard. I wouldnt come back unless I felt like I could play to that high standard, so Im not really concerned about what percentage people think Im at. Im going to come back and play well." Latos, who has won 14 games in each of the past two seasons -- his first two with the Reds -- made his fourth rehab start Monday and lasted 5 2-3 innings in a game shortened by rain. He then continued to throw in an indoor batting cage to get his pitch count up to 100, the goal Price wanted the right-hander to reach before pitching for the Reds. "I was ready five or six days ago," said Latos, who chafed at being forced to make a fourth rehab start. "The stuffs there. My velocity is there. Throwing sliders at 90 mph puts a lot of stress on your arm, so that should tell you something." First baseman Donald Lutz was optioned to Louisville to make room on the roster for Votto. Lutz hit .154 (2 for 13) in seven games after being recalled from Louisville on May 23. Montravius Adams Super Bowl Jersey . A better question yet may be this: How many times has the same player been involved in both? Morneau hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning and helped the Colorado Rockies turn the third triple play in team history as they beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 on Sunday. ZaDarius Smith Super Bowl Jersey . "Youre next." Hardly. Iguodala tormented his former team with a game better than any he ever played in eight seasons with the 76ers.SCIACCA, Italy -- John Daly had five birdies and an eagle for a 5-under 67, finishing two shots off the leaders at the Sicilian Open on Friday. The 46-year-old Daly trailed six players, including first-round leader Peter Lawrie, who shot a 72. Lawrie was joined at 8 under by Jamie Donaldson (71), David Lynn (69), Pelle Edberg (66), Maarten Lafeber (68) and Simon Wakefield (67). Daly battled afternoon wind off the Mediterranean. "The last 11 holes were very, very difficult." Daly said. "The winds just got stronger and stronger. You never want to say parss are a good score, but today pars were a good score. Kevin King Super Bowl Jersey. " Defending champion Raphael Jacquelin (73) and teenager Matteo Manassero (72) failed to make the cut. American Rich Beem, playing in Europe because he has lost his card on the PGA Tour, shot his second 69 to move alongside Daly at 6 under. Laurie couldnt duplicate his opening-round 64. "My putter went cold, it was as simple as that." Lawrie said. "The greens were difficult to read, but I missed three 5-footers in a row, which was tough to take after yesterday." ' ' '

SAN FRANCISCO -- Two key players are finding their way for the San Francisco Giants. Johnny Strzykalski Jersey . Pablo Sandoval homered for the first time in more than a month and Ryan Vogelsong won for just the second time in nine starts, leading the San Francisco Giants past the Miami Marlins 4-1 on Sunday to salvage a split of their four-game series. Manager Bruce Bochy never doubted these two would get on track. "Theyre two guys we need to have success," Bochy said, "Vogey being a starter and Pablo hitting in the heart of the order." Buster Posey returned from a day off to hit a sacrifice fly, while Tyler Colvin and Brandon Hicks each hit RBI singles in a stretch of four straight base hits with two outs in the first against Jacob Turner. Staked to an early lead, Vogelsong (2-2) struck out six in seven innings as the Giants concluded a season-long stretch with 17 games in as many days. San Francisco avoided its first three-game home losing streak. Turner (0-2) is still searching for his first road win, falling to 0-11 in 18 career road starts. "All I can do is go out and give it everything I have," he said. "Wins, losses, those are things I cant control." Sandoval connected for his third home run with two outs in the fifth, his first since April 13 against the Rockies. He has struggled so far in a contract year. Christian Yelichs RBI groundout off Jeremy Affeldt in the eighth accounted for Miamis run. Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 15th save. A day after San Francisco was shut out 5-0 -- its second shutout in five games -- and went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position and stranded nine, the Giants jumped on Turner right away. The right-hander hit Gregor Blanco to begin the bottom of the first and Blanco stole second, then Poseys sacrifice fly two batters later put the Giants on the board. Eight of San Franciscos 15 runs in the series came with two outs. Vogelsong did his part, and got some help from the defence with a double play and caught stealing. The pitcher also had his third hit of the year with a second-inning single. Vogelsong allowed five hits, struck out at least six for the third time in four May outings, and walked one for his second win of the season. His other victory came May 3 at Atlanta -- and the right-hander stayed optimistic. "You have to believe that youre going to turn it around and get it going," Vogelsong said. "Thats what my hope was. You have to believe that. If you dont, youre behind the 8-ball to begin with. ... Ive read some of the stuff he was saying about Pablo and other people and a lot of it was mental, and its true. "First of all, you have to stop digging a hole, to get out of it. Second of all you have to believe that you can do it. When they believe in you, too, that goes a long way. That helps a lot." Sandoval has raised his batting average to .220 by hitting .389 during a nine-game hitting streak. Both teams ended grueling May stretches, and Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton didnt play until late. The Marlins wrapped up their season-long 11-game road trip out West with just their third loss in the past 15 meetings at AT&T Park, where Miami has its best road record since 2011. The club heads home to put its 17-5 record at Marlins Park on the line against the Phillies. Giants centre fielder Angel Pagan had an MRI on his bruised left shoulder that showed a sprained AC joint, which he hurt trying for a diving catch Saturday. The hope is after sitting out Sunday coupled with Mondays day off he could be ready to play Tuesday at Colorado. "Im not really concerned," Pagan said. "Two days off will be good for me." Injured Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro will have a platelet-rich plasma injection Monday in Miami. NOTES: San Francisco RHP Tim Hudson threw at a higher intensity off flat ground as he nurses a strained left hip that forced him to miss his Friday start. He will have a bullpen session Tuesday ahead of his scheduled start Thursday at Coors Field. ... Giants RF Hunter Pence became the active leader in games played when Texas slugger Prince Fielder sat out Saturday to have his streak end at 547. Pence has appeared in 351 straight games with 216 consecutive starts. He leads the majors in innings played with 409 2-3. Scott Bull Jersey . The Philadelphia left fielder clubbed a tiebreaking, solo home run in the seventh inning, and the Phillies edged the Red Sox, 2-1, in the middle test of a three-game interleague series at Citizens Bank Park. Troy Brown Jersey . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Peyton Manning has been docked a reported $8,268 for taunting Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger in a preseason game last week. The Denver Broncos quarterback laid into the safety for hitting Wes Welker in the head, which left the slot receiver with his third concussion in 10 months. The penalty was reported by ESPN. Manning told ESPNs Chris Mortensen: "I accept it. Money well spent." Swearingers hit on Welker drew a 15-yard personal foul — but so far no word of a fine. Manning was irked by the hit on Welker and after throwing a 29-yard TD pass to Emmanuel Sanders on the next snap, he ran up to Swearinger and let him know it. That resulted in the first personal foul of Mannings NFL career along with kudos from his teammates. Manning explained afterward that he acted out of concern for Welkers well-being. Besides, he said, whats 155 yards with 5 seconds left in the half? "I think if youre going to get one, thats a good time to get one," Manning said after the game. Randy Moss Jersey. Swearinger said Manning swore at him but wouldnt go into details: "He didnt invite me to dinner," Swearinger said. He insisted, however, that his hit on Welker wasnt dirty, explaining the receiver slid at the last moment. "I led with my shoulder. Thats the only thing I could do. Hes a short guy," Swearinger said. Swearinger had been at the centre of several skirmishes during three days of joint practices with the Broncos one week after angering the Atlanta Falcons with his combative style during a joint workout in Georgia. Welker is going through the NFLs concussion protocol. He flew with the Broncos to Dallas to watch the final preseason game Thursday night along with most of the other starters. ' ' '

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. Cedric Killings Jersey Store . -- Duke Johnson ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, the second a 1-yard plunge with 53 seconds left, as No. 7 Miami rallied twice to beat Wake Forest 24-21 on Saturday and remain unbeaten. Johnson finished with 168 yards on 30 carries for the Hurricanes (7-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), Tanner Prices 44-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Gibson with 4:02 remaining put Wake Forest on top, but the Hurricanes went 73 yards on their next 10 plays, with Johnson scoring to keep Miami unbeaten heading into next weeks showdown at No. 3 Florida State. Wake Forest (4-4, 2-3 fell to 1-53 all-time against Top 10 teams -- the lone win coming exactly 67 years ago Saturday. The Demon Deacons trailed for less than 3 minutes against the Hurricanes, and still dropped their fifth straight in the series. Antonio Crawfords interception sealed the win with 37 seconds left for Miami, which was playing its first game since the NCAA investigation into the Nevin Shapiro scandal ended earlier in the week -- culminating a 2 1/2-year saga for the Hurricanes. After Johnsons first score of the game put Miami up 17-14 late in the fourth quarter, Wake Forest found an answer. Price connected with Jared Crump for an 11-yard gain on 4th-and-5 from the Wake Forest 45 with 4:30 remaining. On the next snap, he found Gibson on the right sideline, linebacker Tyrone Cornelius wound up missing on the tackle, and Gibson took off on a 44-yard play that put the Demon Deacons up 21-17 with 4:02 left. But for the second straight game, Miami found a way to get a win in the final moments, and matched their best start since 2003. Price threw for 302 yards and Michael Campanaro had 10 catches for 88 yards for the Demon Deacons. Stephen Morris threw for 191 yards for Miami, including a touchdown pass to Herb Waters. Wake Forest set the tone from the outset, going 16 plays and getting a touchdown on the games first drive. None of the plays gained more than 14 yards, and the 79-yard march -- capped by Josh Harris 12-yard run -- chewed nearly 9 minutes off the clock. In terms of plays (by two) and time (by more than 2 minutes), it was Wake Forests longest scoring drive of the season. Miami was simply on its heels. The Hurricanes went three-and-out on their ensuing drive, and didnt get the ball again until the second quarter. At one point early in the second quarter, Wake Forest was outgaining Miami 124 yards to 8 and enjoying nearly a 10-to-1 edge in time of possession. And after Miami got on the board with a field goal, the Demon Deacons rode the strength of a big play to take a two-score edge. Price found Tyree Harris with a 56-yard third-down pass midway through the second quarter, getting Wake Forest into the Miami red zone. Four plays later -- on 4th-and-1 -- Price connected with Campanaro from 9 yards out to put the Demon Deacons up 14-3, the biggest deficit the Hurricanes had faced since the Florida State game on Oct. 20, 2012. Late in the half, Miami seemed to finally get something going. Facing third-and-short with about 1:30 left, Morris faked a handoff and fired a fastball down the right hash marks that seemed to be sailing high -- before tight end Clive Walford snared it with his right hand and somehow held on through the tackle. One play later, Morris connected with Waters for a 35-yard scoring strike, getting the Hurricanes within 14-10 at halftime. Midway through the third, Miami was inside the Wake Forest 10, but Dallas Crawford was stopped by safety Anthony Wooding, who shook off a block and wrapped him up just shy of what would have been a first down. And when Miami elected not to go for it on another fourth-down opportunity early in the fourth, there was more than a little bit of booing at Sun Life Stadium. Ultimately, the field-position game proved effective. Miami downed a punt at the Wake Forest 3, forced a three-and-out, and Johnson put the Hurricanes ahead for the first time 4 minutes later. Frank Nesser Jersey Store . -- Downcast before the final game of what had been a difficult road trip, the Ottawa Senators found a way to dig out a little momentum in the desert before heading home. Paul Martha Jersey Store . The CFL club is making the move after holding its camp and regular-season practices at the University of Toronto campus in Mississauga, Ont.HARRISON, N.J. -- Before Saturdays practice, Tim Cahill had a premonition about New York Red Bulls teammate Fabian Espindola. "I told Fabian yesterday that he was going to score," Cahill said of the Red Bulls forward, who got his first goal since April 20 in a 2-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo on Sunday. "It didnt matter how long he had been without a goal," Cahill said. "Hes been playing well. When our front line plays well, it takes the pressure off the midfield. Im so happy for him. Ive said time and time again that this team cant worry about stats. We have to worry about getting wins." Espindola broke a scoreless tie in the 60th minute off a feed from Eric Alexander. Jonny Steele put the game away with two minutes left in regulation, giving the Red Bulls (8-6-4) their first win since defeating Los Angeles on May 19. They were 0-2-1 during that span, which included a three-week hiatus. "It was huge for us," said first-year coach Mike Petke. "I think todays game was vital. I wont say the must-win thing, but it was a very vital game. If we dominated like the way we did, thats a positive step to get back to the mentality we had before the break." The Red Bulls moved within one point of first-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference. Houston (6-6-5) remained winless in its last seven matches, going 0-4-3. "Were just making too many mistakes and those mistakes punish you," Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear said. "Overall, our play has been good, but sometimes it comes down to what youre doing in both boxes. You go through things like this in the MLS, but just because youve done it before doesnt mean Im not worried and upset." Espindola, who had two goals in the season opener, got behind the defence after Aleexander fed him with a perfect lead. China Jerseys NFL. He made a solid 20-yard run with the ball, then touched a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Tally Hall for Espindolas fourth of the season. Steele then put the game away in the 88th minute. He took a return pass from Thierry Henry and buried it hard into the upper right corner of the goal. It was Steeles second goal of the season. "We were playing very hard and we got some good chances," Steele said. "We had our chances in the second half and we capitalized. If you keep a clean sheet, then you have a good chance to win." Steele took a kick to the face from Kofi Sarkodie in first-half stoppage time and received a cut to the chin that required five stitches. "But nothing was going to keep me off the field today," Steele said. Petke credited the play of his two goal scorers. "If you would have told me before the season that Fabian and Jonny would be front-line starters for us at this point, I would have said, Probably not," Petke said. "The two of them work so hard. They epitomize what hard work means. They got rewards for their hard and work and it was good for them." Luis Robles made three saves for his fifth shutout of the season. "It was a real important win for us," Cahill said. "We needed to bring back some stability. We hadnt won in a while. But I felt confident from the start. I knew we had the upper hand. I didnt feel like they could hurt us as long as we played with discipline." The Dynamo failed to score a goal for their third straight game. "Its been a difficult time for us and things have been going against us," Giles Barnes said. "Its a game of inches. ... Once we get one, then things will open up for us." ' ' '

ORCHARD PARK, N. Hank Lauricella .Y. - Rex Ryan is officially going from Broadway to Buffalo. The Bills announced in a news release Monday that Ryan has been hired to take over as coach. The news came a day after the former New York Jets coach tentatively accepted the Bills contract offer. Ryan replaces Doug Marrone, who stepped down abruptly on Dec. 31. Rex brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the position that we feel will be a tremendous benefit to our players and the entire Bills organization, owner Terry Pegula said in a statement released by the team. He was very impressive during the interview process, as were many of the candidates to which we spoke. And we feel Rex is the best fit for our team. Ryan will be formally introduced during a press conference scheduled for Wednesday. The 52-year-old is a defensive specialist, and noted for a brash personality and having a deep loyalty to his players. Ryan had a 50-52 record, including 4-2 in the playoffs, in six seasons coaching the Bills AFC East rival. He was fired along with general manager John Idzik following a 4-12 finish last season. The Jets reached and lost the AFC Championship game in each of Ryans first two seasons, but failed to make the playoffs since. The Bills are already making plans to assist Ryan on offence. A person familiar with negotiations told The Associated Press that the Bills are finalizing contract discussions to hire Greg Roman as their offensive co-ordinator. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because Roman has not yet been signed. Roman spent the past four years as the San Francisco 49ers offensive co-ordinator, and was among the 12 candidates interviewed by the Bills last week. He is regarded as a good fit under Ryan, because the two share a similar run-first philosophy. Ryans hiring provides stability to a team that endured a tumultuous 10-month stretch, which began when Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson died in March. Wilsons death raised concerns that the franchise might relocate under new owners before the Pegulas — who also own the NHL Buffalo Sabres — purchased the Bills for an NFL-record $1.4 billion in October. Then came Marrones surprising departure following a 9-7 finish. Buffalo matched its best record in a decade, but missed the playoffs to extend the NFLs longest active drought to 15 seasons. The second-year coach quit by exercising an opt-out clause in his contract that kicked in once the Bills were sold. Marrone, who will be paid $4 million this season by the Bills, had concerns of were where he fit in the teams hierarchy. The Pegulas had expressed interest in hiring a veteran NFL presence to oversee the teams football operations. Former Bills general manager Bill Polian was a candidate to fill the newly created position before informing the Pegulas on Jan. 1 that he preferred staying in broadcasting. Marrone, coincidentally, has interviewed with the Jets, where he previously served as the teams offensive line coach. The Bills became the first of six NFL teams to fill their coaching vacancy this off-season. Ryan was also a coaching candidate in Atlanta and San Francisco. In choosing the Bills, Ryan is following in the footsteps of former understudy, Mike Pettine, who left the Jets two years ago to become Buffalos defensive co-ordinator. Pettine spent a year in Buffalo before being hired to coach the Cleveland Browns. The Bills defence thrived under Pettine, and continued to be the teams strength under co-ordinator Jim Schwartz last season. Buffalo finished fourth in fewest yards allowed, and the defence produced three Pro Bowl linemen. Schwartz was a candidate for the Bills job, and his status is now uncertain under Ryan. Improving the Bills offence is Ryans top priority, and no different than the challenge he faced in New York. Buffalo finished 26th in yards gained last season, four spots behind the Jets. And the quarterback position was a concern for both teams, and involving two players selected in 2013 draft. The Jets faltered behind Geno Smith, who was eventually benched and replaced by Michael Vick for three games before finishing out the season. In Buffalo, EJ Manuel was benched after four games and replaced by 10-year journeyman Kyle Orton, who has since said he plans to retire. Manuel has two years left on his contract and is the only experienced starter on the roster. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Bruce Gregory . Many of those eyes are in the United States of America, a country that the sport has wanted on its side for some time. On Sunday the football Gods delivered once again, only this time it was time for good old USA to experience as much heartache as joy. Tom Nelson . In this weeks Leaf Report podcast, James Mirtle and Jonas Siegel debate whether Toronto can continue their shootout dominance and discuss what Dave Nonis game plan should be heading into the trade deadline. GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Sluggish in the first period, Phoenix scored its first two goals on fortunate bounces in the second. Once the Coyotes got rolling, there was no stopping them, particularly the way Thomas Greiss was turning away shots. Greiss stopped 27 shots, Lauri Korpikoski had a goal and two assists, and the Coyotes rolled to a 6-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. "The first period was so-so, I guess, but I really thought we started to play well in the second," said Mikkel Boedker, one of seven Phoenix players with multiple points. "We got a couple of lucky bounces, but sometimes thats what you need to get going." Phoenix needed a spark after consecutive disappointing home losses to Columbus and Philadelphia. After a tight-checking first period, the Coyotes took control in the second period, scoring two of their three goals on fortuitous bounces. Phoenix raced away from the Flames after that to win in regulation for the first time since beating the Islanders 6-3 on Dec. 12. Boedker, Shane Doan, Martin Hanzal and Michael Stone each had a goal and an assist for Phoenix. Rob Klinkhammer also scored, and Mike Ribeiro and Radim Vrbata each had two assists. Greiss capped off Phoenixs big night with some tough saves for his second career shutout. "It was kind of a strange game, kind of mucky there in the first period," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We were able to get a little puck luck there in the second and kind of pushed the game along." Calgary arrived in the desert late after playing Colorado the night before. The Flames were able to muck it up to keep up with Phoenix in the first period, but had no answer when the Coyotes got rolling. Reto Berra allowed at least five goals for the third time this season, and the Flames were shut out for the fourth time in six games. Calgary has lost nine of 11. "Were part of a process where excuses will not be a part of it," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "They were better than us. We kind of fell apart after those two goals." The Coyotes had Greiss between the pipes after coach Dave Tippett decided to give starter Mike Smith the night off. Smith had been anxiously awaiting word on whether he would make the Canadian Olympic team. Tippett wanted his goalie to rest after such an emotional day, even after he made the team. Thouggh he wont supplant Smith as the starter -- Phoenix signed Smith to a six-year, $24 million contract last summer -- Greiss has, in some ways, been more consistent this season. Pervis Atkins. In his first season with the Coyotes, Greiss entered Tuesdays game 5-2-1 with a 2.12 goals-against average. He earned the victory on Dec. 31 against Edmonton by stopping 15 shots after Smith was pulled in the second period. Greiss was solid early. He had the highlight of the defensive-dominated opening period, making a spectacular glove save when Dennis Wideman was left open in front on a power play. Greiss turned away a couple of tough shots on a power play in the second period, including a glove save on Mike Cammalleri, and stopped 13 shots in the third period. "Hes just really solid in there," Tippett said. "He doesnt do anything really flashy, just gets in front of the puck and I guess thats what hes supposed to." While Greiss kept the Coyotes in it early, two fortunate bounces put them up 2-0 quickly in the second. Doan was the recipient of the first, when Boedker sent a pass from behind the net that bounced off Berras shoulder, hit the Coyotes captains shoulder, and went in. The Coyotes scored again 1:36 later when a shot by Korpikoski ricocheted sideways off Vrbatas skate right to Hanzal, who one-timed a shot before Berra could slide over. Boedker made it 3-0 later in the period, one-timing a pass from Ribeiro for his 13th goal and career-high 29th point of the season. Korpikoski punched in his own rebound in the third period and set up Stones goal with a nice drop pass. "We played a team thats had the success theyve had because they stay patient and stick with it, and we saw the snowball effect of it," Cammalleri said. "They did it the right way and we did it the wrong way."

LONDON -- A second-half own goal from Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale and strikes from Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith secured Evertons fifth consecutive Premier League win at Craven Cottage on Sunday. 49ers Super Bowl Jerseys . The defeat leaves the Cottagers at the bottom of the table, five points clear of safety. Meanwhile, Everton are now on 60 points, four adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, albeit with a game in hand. "This season were fighting to be as high as we can in the table to have that European qualification would be an incredible achievement for the players and thats the way were going to look at every game," said winning manager Roberto Martinez. The home side started brightly, and almost took the lead after twenty-two minutes. The influential Lewis Holtby slid in Moussa Dembele, but Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard made a smart save with his legs to deny the Frenchman from breaking the deadlock. At the stroke of half-time, Holtby and Dembele combined again. Holtbys inviting cross found Dembele in the area, but his powerful header was kept out by Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard, leaving Fulham ruing a dominant first-half display without breaking the deadlock. Despite struggling in the first half, Everton started brighter in the second and took the lead in the 50th minute, when a Naismith shot from the edge of the box took a deflection off Pajtim Kasami and rebounded off the Fulham keeper into the goal. The hosts drew level in the 71st courtesy of a stunning 25 yards drive from Ashjan Dejagah. He found himself with the ball on the edge of the box, and a slip from Everton midfielder James McCarthy allowed the attacking midfielder a clear sight of goal, from which he finished with aplomb. With a Champions League position in their sights, the away side responded well, and began to take control of the game. Aidan McGeady delivered a pinpoint pass to fellow substitute Kevin Mirallas, who took the ball expertly in his stride and shot past a diving Stockdale in the Fulham goal. Steven Naismith sealed the Evertons fifth consecutive league win in the 87th when he guided the ball past a helpless Stockdale after Leighton Baines pass. "This was our best game up till now, so we are very disappointed, but we now focus on the next game" Fulham manager Felix Magath said. Kentavius Street Super Bowl Jersey .

The 56-year-old German player won the season-opening event in Hawaii for his 19th Champions Tour title and has 20 straight under-par rounds.

Bryant won the Dicks Sporting Goods Open last year for his lone victory on the 50-and-over tour. He rebounded from a bogey on the par-5 13th with three straight birdies.

MINNEAPOLIS - What started as a bad day for the Toronto Blue Jays turned into a record-breaking disaster by nights end. Richard Sherman Super Bowl Jersey . Minnesota scored three straight runs on wild pitches by the Torontos Sergio Santos in the eighth inning, when the Twins walked eight times off three relievers in rallying for a 9-5 victory and a sweep of Thursdays day-night doubleheader. R.A. Dickey (1-3) allowed five runs as Minnesota won the opener 7-0. The Twins trailed 5-1 in the fifth of the night game before the Blue Jays pitching staff fell apart. Steve Delabar walked two batters starting the six-run eighth, setting up Santos (0-1) for trouble as manager John Gibbons called for his closer early. Santos walked all three batters he faced, loading the bases with one out when he put on pinch-hitter Trevor Plouffe. The Twins cut the lead to 5-4 when Josmil Pinto came home on a wild pitch. "Im obviously one of the main guys to blame there. I put us in a bad situation," Delabar said. "That was brutal." The collapse by the Blue Jays bullpen only got worse. Ball four by Santos to pinch-hitter Kurt Suzuki was wild, too, allowing Chris Herrmann to score and tie the game. Santos threw another wild pitch to Brian Dozier, and pinch-runner Pedro Florimon raced home for the lead. J.A. Happ relieved Santos, who took his first blown save in five chances this year. Happ walked two more and then Jason Kubel broke open the game with a two-run single, the only hit of the inning. Santos, who has been handling the ninth-inning role while Casey Janssen is on the disabled list with a strained back, threw only four strikes in 16 pitches. "Coming into that situation, I had to be perfect," Santos said. "Looking back on it now, I felt like I was trying to be too perfect there. Tough, obviously. When you see the position guys go out and play in this cold weather, so many innings, its just a long day." The eight walks allowed is a team record, breaking the previous mark of seven free passes issued in the first inning on June 21, 1994, against Boston. The previous time a team walked eight times in one inning was April 19, 1996, when Texas did so against Baltimore. The record of 11 was set by the Washington Senators against the New York Yankees on Sept. 11, 1949. Casey Fien (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory. Jose Bautista took over the AL lead with his sixth homer, a solo shot in the fifth inning. Bautista, who also walked and scored in the first, has gone deep 11 times in 14 games at the ballpark the Twins opened in 2010. Thats the same number of homers Joe Mauer has here in 256 games. Toronto starter Dustin McGowan failed to finish the fifth. But all that was forgotten with the wildness that came later in the game. Gibbons said hes never seen anything like what unfolded in the eighth. "We couldnt throw strikes. We didnt pitch good all series," he said. "Its cold, all right. Its cold for both sides. If youre ever going to get to September or October in the playoffs, its going to be cold." Kyle Gibson (3-0) beat the Blue Jays in the first game, the coldest start, 31 degrees, for an outdoor game in Twins history. The young righty breezed through a Toronto lineup that totalled 20 runs in the previous two games. The veteran Dickey didnt handle the cold nearly as well. "Im traditionally a slow starter so hopefully I can get on track next time. The conditions werent a big deal for me today. It wasnt ideal, but it wasnt something where I was coming in trying to soak my fingers in warm water to keep them warm. I just didnt execute when I needed to make a big pitch, and they put good swings on it," said Dickey, whos ERA rose to 6.26. Despite this dud, Dickey has pitched six-plus innings in two of his four starts. After wintry weather forced postponement of Wednesdays game, workers scrambled all morning to melt snow and ice from the seating areas, and the grounds crew dried the warning track. It would have been better for the Blue Jays if the game was snowed out again. "Im sure once we get on the plane well talk about it a little bit," Santos said. "But once we land in Cleveland, its all Cleveland." NOTES: Dickey is 1-3 with a 6.58 ERA in six career starts against the Twins. ... For the first time in 15 games this season, Blue Jays LF Melky Cabrera failed to get a hit. ... Bautista is hitting .336 with 20 home runs in 39 career games against the Twins. Kyle Juszczyk Super Bowl Jersey . Hes even holding a bat on one of his 2014 baseball cards. So far, hes playing like his picture. C. J. Beathard Super Bowl Jersey . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line.The Ottawa SenatorsThe Sens had a golden opportunity to win the cup in 2007. After beating the Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres all in five games, the Senators would square off in the Cup Final against the Anaheim Ducks. It was a great time for the city of Ottawa as it was their first time being in the Cup final since 1927. Dany Heatley, Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson carried the Sens throughout the playoffs, along with the goaltending of Ray Emery.The Sens could not handle the Ducks in the Cup final though, who had forwards like Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne. The Ducks also had a solid shutdown line, a lethal defence duo of Chris Pronger and Scott Niedermayer, and a world class goalie in Jean-Sebastien Giguere. The Sens would lose to the Ducks in five games which would conclude their best run at the cup since the Habs won in 1993.Watch a tribute to their run here.Toronto Maple LeafsYes, the Toronto Maple Leafs have had a solid playoff run since the Habs won in 1993, and it almost got them in the Cup Final. The year was 2002 and the Leafs defeated the Islannders and the Senators in the opening rounds. Jeff Wilson Super Bowl Jersey. They would play the Conference Final against a team that they matched up pretty well against, the Carolina Hurricanes. The Leafs had an incredible goaltender in Curtis Joseph, and classic players like Mats Sundin, Gary Roberts and Darcy Tucker. Sundin and Tucker actually missed most of the first two rounds with injuries, so when they returned in the Eastern Conference Final, most Toronto fans were predicting their team would finally play for the Cup for the first time since 1967.The Leafs seemed to run out of gas and couldnt handle the Hurricanes, who got great goaltending from Arturs Irbe, and tons of production out of forwards like Rod BrindAmour, Erik Cole, and Jeff ONeill. The Leafs would lose in dramatic fashion at home in Game 6 in overtime. Sundin tied the game with the goalie pulled before the eventual season-ending goal by the Hurricanes. Check out Sundins game-tying goal which would highlight the Leafs 2002 run.So fans, who in the East has the best shot at being the next Canadian team to win a cup? Tweet us @BarDown ' ' '

DETROIT -- Jason Kipnis sprinted around the bases after hitting each of his two homers, forgetting how it felt to trot after hitting the ball well enough to clear the fences. Alex Okafor Super Bowl Jersey . Kipnis hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer and added a solo shot in the ninth to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 9-3 on Friday night. He began the game without a home run since April 21. "I havent even done it (in) BP I feel like for two months," Kipnis said. After Kipnis tiebreaking homer, Asdrubal Cabrera sent the next pitch over the right-field fence to cap a seven-run seventh inning that helped Cleveland come back from a 3-0 deficit in the opener of a four-game series against the AL Central-leading Tigers. Cleveland has scored 61 runs this season in the seventh inning, producing more than it has in any other inning. "As long as we score before we have to go home," Indians manager Terry Francona said. Trevor Bauer (4-4) gave up three runs on six hits over six innings. "He kept us in the game," Francona said. Detroits Anibal Sanchez (6-4) retired the first seven batters he faced and had a 3-0 lead. He ended up giving up four runs, six hits, walking one and striking out seven in an uneven performance. "I think he just got tired, actually," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "I dont know if it was the time off or whatever reason, it just looked to me like he got tired. The ball got up in the zone. He was real crisp up until that point. It was almost like he hit a wall." The Tigers won 17 of 23 games going into the All-Star break. Cleveland has won seven of its last 10 games to move a game over .500, pulling into a second-place tie with Kansas City, trailing the Tigers by 6 1/2 games. "Weve had guys struggling in the first half, its been a surprise, but I dont think anybodys mad about being at .500 in the first half," Kipnis said. "And if you have a great second half, I dont think anybodys going to be too mad about how we did in the first half, so thats what were concentrating on." The Indians chased Sanchez in the seventh when Nick Swisher hit a bases-loaded, two-run single with no outs. "He gives you some pitches to hit, but not many, and guys did a good job of being patient," Kipnis said. Al Alburquerque later entered the inning with two runners in scoring position and was working his way out of the jam with two strikeouts. He had a 1-2 count against Kipnis, whose fourth homer of the season gave Cleveland a 6-3 lead. Indians reliever Scott Atchison got Austin Jackson to hit into an inning-ending double play in the seventh. After both starters pitched two perfect innings, the Indians had a hit in the third and the Tigers had two and scored a run in the home half. Detroit loaded the bases with one out and Bauer got out of the jam, allowing one run on Ian Kinslers sacrifice fly and getting Miguel Cabrera to hit an inning-ending fly. Torii Hunter hit an RBI double in the fourth, stole third and scored on catcher Yan Gomes throwing error, giving the Tigers a 3-0 lead. They potentially could have scored another run in the inning, but J.D. Martinez was thrown out at home trying to score from first base on Hunters double. The Tigers had designated hitter Victor Martinez in the lineup for the first time since July 4. He had been out with a strained lower right side, an ailment that led to him missing the All-Star game. NOTES: Francona, a week after LeBron James announced he was coming home, was asked if he has bought Cavaliers tickets. "Im in the process of it. There seems to be a little bit more of a waiting list now," he said. ... Indians CF Michael Brantley had four hits, matching a career high that he last tied earlier this year against Detroit. ... Cleveland recalled RHP Chen-Chang Lee from Triple A-Columbus, bolstering their bullpen. Lee fills the roster spot created when RHP Zach McAllister was optioned to Columbus, but McAllister is scheduled to pitch in the second game of Saturdays doubleheader in Detroit against RHP Max Scherzer. Detroit RHP Drew VerHagen is set to make his major league debut Saturday afternoon against Cleveland RHP Corey Kluber. Chiefs Super Bowl Jerseys . - Maynor Figueroa headed in a late goal to give Honduras a 1-1 draw with the United States in an international friendly Tuesday. Darwin Thompson Super Bowl Jersey .
