BOSTON -- Martin Perez put Bostons leadoff hitter on base in seven innings. Corey Linsley Super Bowl Jersey . Then the left-hander pitched Texas out of jams by getting five double plays. That helped the Rangers withstand a late rally and beat the Red Sox 10-7 on Tuesday night. The double play is "a pitchers best friend," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "They got on base, but he was able to eliminate them." Bostons five double plays were one fewer than the American League record for a nine-inning game shared by eight teams. The major league mark of seven was set by the San Francisco Giants in 1969. "Five double plays and we scored seven runs. Im sure thats pretty rare, too," Jonny Gomes said after Bostons fourth loss in five games. "If we can score seven runs with five double plays, I think were scratching the surface on the positive side." The Red Sox grounded into double plays by Dustin Pedroia in the first inning, A.J. Pierzynski in the second, Jackie Bradley Jr. in the third, Ryan Roberts in the fifth and Pedroia in the sixth. Perez (1-0) allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. "Im not a power pitcher," he said. "Im a groundball pitcher and when you throw good pitches down in the zone that happens." Robinson Chirinos started a five-run third inning with his first homer of the season and the Rangers led 9-1 through six. Boston scored three runs in the seventh and, after Michael Choice made it 10-4 with a sacrifice fly in the ninth, the Red Sox scored three times in the bottom of the inning on an RBI single by Gomes and a two-run double by David Ortiz against Joakim Soria. Mike Napoli, who had three singles for the second straight game, struck out to end it. The Rangers finished with 13 hits, the first time in six games that they had at least 10. And they were 7 for 15 with runners in scoring position one night after going 0 for 8 in a 5-1 loss in the opener of the three-game series. But designated hitter Adrian Beltre left in the sixth with tightness in the front of his left thigh and was to return to Texas to be examined. He was bothered by tightness on the side of that thigh in spring training. "We had an 8-1 lead," said Washington, who didnt know how serious the injury was. "He aggravated it. I dont see why I should leave him in there." Texas won for the second time in five games as every starter reached base by the fourth inning. Chirinos second career homer broke a scoreless tie and began an inning in which the Rangers batted around against Felix Doubront (1-1). Shin-Soo Choo singled with one out and scored on a two-out double by Prince Fielder, who entered the game with four hits in 28 at-bats and just one RBI. The other runs scored on a single by Beltre, a double by Donnie Murphy and a bases-loaded walk to Chirinos. "Once were down five, even though we got a number of leadoff hitters on base, weve got to be a little bit protective of just giving away outs," Boston manager John Farrell said. "It was the groundball double play that snuffed everything out." The Rangers added three runs in the fourth against Burke Badenhop. Choo led off with a walk, went to second on a single by Elvis Andrus and scored on a single by Fielder. Beltre followed with a run-scoring double and Murphy made it 8-0 with a sacrifice fly. Boston scored in the fourth on a double by Pedroia and a single by Napoli. Texas got that run back in the fifth on doubles by Chirinos and Choo. Adding on runs at Fenway Park is important, "especially late in this ballpark," Washington said. "Those guys have taken a lot of ballgames away, so every time you get an opportunity to put a run on the board you want to do it." The Red Sox cut the lead to 9-4 in the seventh on an RBI single by Pierzynski and a two-run double by Bradley. NOTES: Andrus and Alex Rios have hits in all eight Rangers games. ... Roberts made his debut for Boston after signing as a free agent Monday. He spent last season with Tampa Bay and spring training this year with the Chicago Cubs. ... Robbie Ross (0-0) pitches for Texas against Jake Peavy (0-0) in the series finale Wednesday. Billy Turner Super Bowl Jersey . His apology came before a pregame ceremony in which the team honoured its 2004 team that won Bostons first World Series championship since 1918. "I realize that I behaved bad in Boston," Ramirez said. Oren Burks Super Bowl Jersey . The third-seeded Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., was coming off a semifinal appearance at the French Open. She took the opening set before the unseeded American came back for the 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory. DENVER -- Juan Nicasio bounced back nicely from his first loss of the season. Carlos Gonzalez homered before leaving with a finger injury, Nicasio pitched seven scoreless innings and drove in three runs, and the Colorado Rockies beat the New York Mets 7-4 on Thursday night. "All my breaking balls worked today and I had good command of my fastball, too," said Nicasio, who was dinged for a couple of home runs by the Los Angeles Dodgers while struggling with his location last time out during a 4 1-3 inning outing. "Thats why I was good today," Nicasio said. "I threw a lot of sliders for strikes, my fastball was down in the zone. When Im pitching good, I have command of my fastball, and keeping the ball down. I lost my command (last time out)." New York manager Terry Collins said Nicasio kept Mets batters guessing. "He moved the ball in and out," Collins said. "He threw strikes." Corey Dickerson added three hits, including an RBI triple and Nolan Arenado singled leading off the third to extend the majors longest active streak to 21 games. Hes tied for the fourth-longest hitting streak in Rockies team history. Gonzalez connected for his sixth home run of the season in the first inning, driving a 3-2 offering from Bartolo Colon (2-4) off the right-centre field facing just below the second deck. He was lifted in the fourth inning, replaced by pinch hitter Brandon Barnes, because of a bruised left index finger. His playing status was listed as day to day. "I dont think hes going to miss a lot of time," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "It was encouraging that the swelling was going down already." Colon allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 4 2-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. He walked one and struck out three. "Bartolo left pitches over the plate. And we ran into a hot team," said Travis dArnaud, who homered in the ninth off reliever Chad Bettis. But Nicasio (3-1) was effective at the plate and on the mound. After allowing a one-out singgle in the second to Chris Young, Nicasio retired 12 batters in a row before issuing his lone walk in the sixth inning. Custom Packers Super Bowl Jerseys. The only extra base hit he allowed was a double leading off the game to Juan Lagares. He was activated prior to the game after spending the previous two weeks on the disabled list because of a strained right hamstring. "Its a good step for him," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "Weve seen Juan real good in the past, saw him good early and hopefully he gets on a roll." Nicasio also was a central figure in the Rockies offence. "We preach a lot to our pitchers if they can execute the game offensively theres probably a few Ws in there for them," Weiss said. Dickerson and Charlie Culberson hit successive two-out singles in the second and, running on the pitch, they both scored when Nicasio followed with a single that rolled to the right field corner. He added a sacrifice fly in the Rockies three-run fourth. Arenado also had a sacrifice fly and Charlie Blackmon an RBI single in the inning. Dickersons two-out triple in the fifth scored Justin Morneau, who was aboard with a single. The Mets avoided their third shutout of the season when Lagares, doubling for the second time in the game, hit a drive off Bettis in the eighth to the right centerfield gap to score pinch hitter Bobby Abreu from first. Bettis surrendered a two-out, three-run homer to dArnaud in the ninth before retiring Ruben Tejada on a fly ball to right. NOTES: Four of the seven home runs Colon has given up this season have come in the first inning. ... Colons four-pitch walk to Wilin Rosario leading off the fourth represented his first walk in 14 innings. ... Arenados 21-game hitting streak is the longest in the majors this season. ... Nicasios last multi-RBI game was June 14 against Philadelphia. ... The Mets Daniel Murphy went 0 for 4, snapping a 10-game hitting streak. ... Rockies catcher Rosario was back in the lineup after missing the previous four games with a left hand injury. ' ' '

Just like a new product, after processing, it will leave a little industrial flavor after processing. It's like new items like shoes, clothes, leather goods, cars, housing, and so on. The same is true for TPE dolls, especially for some custom sex dolls, which are shipped to the customer at the fastest speed after the end of the custom construction period.

Amorous is not a man's patent. With the opening of the society, more and more people can't stand loneliness and temptation. So some women show their amorous feelings incisively and vividly, and their sexual life is very abundant . So, as a amorous woman, what kind of performance will she have? Let's get to know

1. Don't mind going to guys' sleepovers: if you don't know what you want to do, you can go to your house for the night with you. It's possible for a lonely man or a girl to have anything happen, but she has no scruples. In any case want to be popular, the status of women is reflected in how many men pursue her. Women who hold this view are not satisfied with giving everything to their husbands after marriage, and then tempting the men around them. Active choice and use of  sex toys

2. Think that marriage is the tomb of love: women with such thoughts have a restless heart. Because they think marriage is a dry and boring pronoun, she can't be free after marriage, and can't see one love like now. Women who have repeatedly cheated are usually unwilling to have a stable and stable daily life. No matter how tender and considerate the husband is, how high the income is, such women still find their daily life too boring. They are easy to play fire with a game mentality. When a person is alone or at leisure, loneliness will break out. She will try to find someone to accompany her and listen to her complaints. No matter who is pursuing her or her ex boyfriend, as long as she can solve the loneliness. Some men choose  sex dolls when they are lonely

3. Keen on all kinds of love TV dramas: Playful women love watching love movies, fantasizing that they are the princesses in the drama, enjoying the feeling of being pursued by handsome men. In their eyes, love is as vigorous and exciting as TV drama, regardless of the actual situation. A playful woman will take advantage of going out to meet the right man. In order to catch men, they must appear in front of each other in the most beautiful image. Therefore, whether they go downstairs to throw garbage or go shopping in convenience stores, they will never cut corners on facial engineering.

4. Sudden sexual impulse: she will never consider the situation or atmosphere in front of her. She will have sex with you suddenly, like a wild cat in autumn. She is fierce, hungry and enthusiastic. Every time she finished, she pretended to be embarrassed and said, "ah, here comes another time." But as soon as the voice was heard, she would ask for another one.

If you have the above four performances, it will be enough to show that you are a amorous woman. Although it is not the same age, but actually as a woman, you still need to be loyal to love. Physiologically, the less sexual partners, the more conducive to health. For example, one of the inducements of cervical cancer is that there are too many sexual partners.

Thierry Henry and Jamie Redknapp discuss the Premier League relegation battle and predict a fight to the finish for Norwich, Newcastle and Sunderland. Air Force 1 Low Noir . The two sides from the north east drew their respective games this weekend, with the Magpies coming from behind to draw 2-2 with Liverpool and the Black Cats holding Arsenal to a stalemate on Super Sunday.Norwich were not in action this weekend but did drop into the bottom three after Sunderlands result, both sides holding a game in hand over Newcastle. The current positions and run-in for the bottom three of the Premier League With just one point separating the three clubs, the Sky Sports pundits were unable to choose between the sides with Redknapp calling the relegation fight a lottery.Its very difficult. I think if youd said to Alex Neil at the start of the weekend that neither Newcastle nor Sunderland would win, I think hed have taken that, Redknapp said on Super Sunday. Jack Colback earned Newcastle a 2-2 draw at Liverpool Hell be looking at those fixtures and thinking, Watford at home, Everton away - if we can go and get four points, maybe weve got a good chance.Its not been too bad a weekend for Norwich. Theyve got Arsenal next - its not an easy game but if they defend well, you never know. Its a lottery, its a toss of the coin, it really is. Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce thought his side did enough in the second half to win their game against Arsenal but is happy with a vital point following Crystal Palace now have an FA Cup final to look forward to. Newcastle are also playing against an Aston Villa side that are down and have given up.Theyll also be hoping Tottenham have nothing to play for - it could be a bit after-the-Lord-Mayors-Show, that game. Newcastle have it all to do but Ive been down in that position - you try to predict results and the one you expect to win, you dont. Could Crystal Palaces FA Cup date give Newcastle an advantage? Henry identified the recent run of Sunderland and Newcastle as crucial for their survival, and also pointed to what he sees as a big advantage for Sam Allardyces men.Its a tough one. The only thing Id say is that momentum is with Sunderland and Newcastle with their results, the former Arsenal striker added. Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez was delighted with his team after they came from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with Liverpool You could say that Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are easier games for Newcastle - theyve less to play for than some of the other opponents.But you have to mention the goal difference of Sunderland - its minus 18 compared to the other two (seven better than Norwich, eight better than Newcastle).

PITTSBURGH, Pa. Qadry Ismail Jersey . - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis skated on Friday, barely 12 hours after being taken off the ice on a stretcher during a loss to Dallas.Coach Mike Johnston said the 35-year-old forward looked fine while going through some conditioning work for trainers. Dupuis did not participate in practice but Johnston said theres a chance Dupuis could return to the lineup on Saturday night when the Penguins face the New York Islanders.All signs are real positive this morning, Johnston said.Dupuis was cross-checked in front of the net by Stars defenceman Alex Goligoski in the second period Thursday night and hit in the neck or upper-back area by teammate Kris Letangs shot from the point while he was down. Dupuis got up on one knee before clutching his arm and lying back on the ice.He complained of numbness in the arm but gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he was taken to the trainers room and was able to meet with his teammates afterward.Its scary when you see that, you dont know whats happening, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. I saw him after the game and knew he was good. Im happy to hear that obviously.Dupuis has once goal and three assists in Pittsburghs first four games. He missed the second half of the 2013-14 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee.Youre thinking to yourself its never good to see that but especially a guy whos been what hes been through lately, Crosby said. Mark Ingram II Jersey . Ireland was the last unbeaten side in the championship after France fell to Wales on Friday, and was favoured to end a three-match losing run to England with a side with more than twice as many caps, rampant momentum, and added incentive to celebrate Brian ODriscolls world record-tying 139th test cap. Clarence Moore Jersey .ca. In Sundays Blackhawks-Penguins game, Pittsburgh defenceman Brooks Orpik laid a huge hit on Chicagos Jonathan Toews. Now in my view, Orpik can be clearly seen leaving his feet while delivering a moderately high hit.It shouldnt come as a disappointment anymore for England supporters.  They are used to this.  Losing.  It isnt underachieving when the team isnt good enough.  This is as good as it gets. Whenever Englands Brazilian journey comes to an end (they havent been eliminated, yet) the diehard support and those responsible for overseeing English football will hold on to the positive moments.  Flashes of ability and promise are what constitute hope.  "They werent that bad" is excused as progress.  The play of the likes of Sturridge and Sterling, and the futures of Barkley and Shaw will be used as evidence brighter days ahead.  Yawn. Weve heard this before.  Weve done this song and dance.  The days of a semi-final shoot-out loss in Italia 90 are long gone.  Lets not go back to 1966.  The failures have piled on, one less painful than the next.  Success would be a surprise.  Losses to more intelligent and superior football nations are the expectation.  The English should be immune from the feeling of devastation or outrage.  From a Golden Generation not good enough, to the likes of Rooney, Lampard and Gerrard who have failed to capture the imagination.  Its a vicious cycle of mediocrity.  A 2-1 loss to Uruguay is just the latest chapter.  England was poor.  Nothing new.  The how it happened is what drives home the obvious.  Too weak in too many areas and lacking true top talent to break down their competition.  Out-managed.  Out-witted.  Out-classed. Uruguay only completed a pathetic 64 per cent of passes.  The South Americans struggled in build up and were content to sit back.  It was an astute page out of Italys book from Englands opening match; sit-back and force England to break you down.  Dont get beat for speed.  And counter-attack.  Thats what Uruguay did, and credit for executing.  They got stuck in and remained organized.  Forget basic statistics telling you England dominated possession with Uruguay on the back-foot.  It was calculated.  It worked to perfection.  A basic approach against a basic team.  Simple. The game winning goal incredibly came directly from the Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.  A ball put on the ground and a long ball played out.  Simple to defend, right?  Apparently not.  Edinson Cavani dropped deep all match to expose long-in-the-tooth Steven Gerrard sitting on top of the England backline.  For what the England captain has in experience, he lacks in legs because of the kilometers accumulated.  Cavanis aerial challenge of Gerrard forced a wayward header backwards from the England midfielder.  Luis Suarez, as proper poachers do, tucked in behind the backline looking for an advantage.  He gambled and he won, as Gary Cahill got caught.  Suarez was clinical in finish and again showed his special talent.  A game breaker and match winner, something England doesnt have. Likewise on Suarez opener, he exposed Englands backline.  The Uruguayan number nine did well to create the needed space on the far post behind Phil Jagielka.  The ball played to Suarez by Cavani was all-world.  But it was two Uruguayan players on six England defenders.  Nobody put pressure on the ball.  And to leave Suarez lurking on the far post wasnt good enough.  Not to mention is was a missed tackle by Gerrard in the midfield, leading to the attack.  Two England centre-backs and two mistakes leading to goals conceded.  Cahill and Jagielka are experienced at the position, at least at the club level.  They are the best in the country at the position and they were exposed.  The best England has at an all-important position and not good enough.  Its the same story at the other end of the field.  Not good enough.  Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge are more than fine players.  They are very good.  But they are not at the same levels of other top forwards in this tournament, let alone not the top forwards on their own club teams.  Therein is the difference.  The likes of Rooney and Sturridge require real substance around them to be at their best, and thats fine.  They are better the complimentary piece rather than the focus at this level. p; When played appropriately, they can shine. Anthony Averett Jersey.   In this England team, their play often times is representative of the whole.  These are the best England has and they are not good enough. The midfield, a make-shift, comprised of decent parts with no direction on how its supposed to work.  Jordan Henderson had a fine season on a good attacking Liverpool team.  Yet something suggests he has the makings of becoming the next Sinclair, Wright-Phillips, Mills, or Parker – take your pick of the long list of players youll ask, "Did he really play for England?"  Is he really the best England really has?  The rest of the midfield is all over the place.  The left-side exposed defensively and the movement in attack not creative or consistent.  Passing the ball around without purpose wont break down a back line.  Its no surprise this area of the field is stagnant and lacks influence. And the manager, oh the manager.  Roy Hodgson saw fit to keep Englands double-pivot of Gerrard and Henderson on the field in a game begging for attacking players to breakdown the Uruguayan defensive wall.  Comically, two holding players were preferable to keeping on Sterling or Welbeck, or even throwing on a Rickie Lambert until after England went down.  The options at Hodgson arent flattering.  But neither were the tactics. The very least Hodgson could have done was shuffle the deck.  Bring off a defensive midfielder or ineffective wing-back in preference of another attacking player.  Change the shape.  Instead, the end result of a cautious approach was not good enough. Some will suggest Ashley Cole and Jermain Defoe should have been in the England set-up.  Leighton Baines has struggled and another forward option off the bench could have proved decisive.  Arguments can be made but how much of a difference they would have made most likely would have been negligible.  It made more sense to include Michael Carrick in the squad as a holding midfielder able to provide distribution.  But then again, this is a country deeming Paul Scholes not a proper fit to be an England regular over the course of his career.  The best England had, but not good enough?  Theres a pattern here.  Selection issues are nothing new.  But no matter who dons the England kit, are they ever good enough? There have been phenomenal performances over the course of the first week of the World Cup, both by individuals and team.  Honest assessment would tell the standard of football played by the true top football nations is a step beyond England.  Its all very disturbing considering important players for the likes of Chile and Colombia (etc…) are buried in the League Championship, or in some cases not deemed good enough for even that.  This should trouble the English to the core.  But it wont.  Overrating their own talent has become a past-time and feeds the beast.  Criticism and finding scapegoats has become a past time.  In reality, these are the best players they have.  And they are not good enough. The Premier League is the most entertaining league in the world and the most popular.  It is not the best.  Englands best players are not even the top talent in their own domestic league.  Taking a look in the mirror doesnt always cast a pretty reflection.  But the look in the mirror is necessary.  Acceptance is needed.  This was a day England will never have a better context to beat a Uruguay team as such on a stage made for a statement performance.  The weather was an ideal 14 degrees Celsius for the hardened English.  The opponent was missing two of their preferred back-four.  The star player was not 100 per cent. And Uruguays confidence was shaky coming off a shock 3-1 loss.  England didnt let it slip away.  They were incapable of seizing the moment. It is possible England can still advance from the group stage, even though a team losing their first two games at a World Cup has never done so.  Italy must beat Costa Rica then Uruguay, and England will need a comprehensive victory over the Ticos to have superior goal differential.  But really, would that constitute success?  Squeaking by would be as good as it gets for a team not good enough.

Milos Raonic battled to win the fourth five-set match of his career Friday as he advanced to the fourth round of the French Open. Rodney McCray Jersey . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros. Raonic fired 19 aces but rode a roller coaster as he was broken while serving for victory. But the 23-year-old then broke Simon to go up 6-5, and earned the victory in the ensuing game when Simon hit a long return on match point. Raonic advanced with 60 winners and six of 12 break points converted, but also committed 74 unforced errors. "It was just incredible to play a tough opponent like Gilles, Im very content with this win," said Raonic. "We were on court a long time and Im a bit tired. When I was broken serving for it, I just told myself I had to break back and go from there. I stayed calm. "This is my first fourth round here and its a very important win for me. Its also my first in a big showcourt like this at a Grand Slam. Its all super for me, I want to continue." Robert Reid Jersey.com) - Nino Williams posted 18 points and seven rebounds, as Kansas State edged No. Rockets Jerseys 2021 . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball.TAMPA, Fla. -- What Anthony Jennings lacked in experience, LSU more than compensated for with a talented supporting cast in the Outback Bowl. Jennings made plenty of freshman mistakes Wednesday, however they werent nearly as costly as they could have been for the 14th-ranked Tigers with Jeremy Hill rushing for 216 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-14 victory. The second quarterback in school history to make his first college start in a bowl game, Jennings fretted over an interception that helped Iowa (8-5) get back in the game. But with the outcome on the line, he simply turned and handed the ball to Hill, who made sure LSU (10-3) would not lose. "Anthony in his first start was tight," coach Les Miles said, adding that Jennings learned some lessons will be beneficial moving forward with his career. "He wasnt perfect by any stretch," Miles said. "But he did what he had to do." Craig Lostons fourth-quarter interception stopped a potential tying drive, giving Hill a chance to put the game out of reach by carrying four times for 87 yards on a six-play, 92-yard march that gave LSU (10-3) a 21-7 lead. Iowa (8-5) pulled within a touchdown for the second time in 4 minutes after Jordan Cotton returned the ensuing kickoff to the Tigers 4. Jennings ran for a first-quarter touchdown, but the true freshman struggled to hit open receivers while completing 7 of 19 passes for 82 yards. In addition to throwing an interception that Iowas John Lowdermilk returned 71 yards, he was sacked four times while standing in for the injured Zach Mettenberger. C.J. Beathard replaced Jake Rudock at quarterback for Iowa on the first play of the fourth quarter. His fourth-down interception stopped one promising drive, but he also tossed a 4-yard TD pass to Kevonte Martin-Manley that trimmed Iowas deficit to 21-14 with 1:42 remaining. Lowdermilk set up Iowas other TD -- Mark Weismans 2-yard run in the third quarter -- with his interception return to the LSU 1. Officials initially ruled Lowdermilk, who was untouched on the return, scored. But the TD was reversed when a replay review determined the Iowa defender dropped the ball before crossing the goal line. "It was just an embarrassing play, and thats not Iowa Hawkeye football. ... I really regret it and I apologize," Lowdermilk said. "It was just a sickening feeling all around. I was just so happy Mark scored. It was a bonehead play on my part." The victory enabled LSU to finish with at least 10 wins for a school-record fourth consecutive season. The loss ended Iowas three-game winning streak. "Our team wanted to create a legacy, and the seniors wanted to be the first group to win 10 games four years in a row. They wanted to win a bowl championship and they wanted to commit to playing as a team," Miles said. "The hard work that each andd every guy has went through, there was no question they were going to play hard together. Steve Francis Jersey. " Hill, a 235-pound sophomore who rushed with 1,401 yards and 16 TDs this season, averaged 7.7 yards per carry on 28 attempts. On the clinching drive, he delivered runs of 2, 28, 20 and, finally, 37 yards for his second touchdown. He also scored on a 14-yard run in the second quarter. "Given an opportunity to close out a game, he knows what to do," Miles said. "I took it on my shoulders that I needed to make plays to win the football game," Hill said. "Great players have that mentality." Iowa was back in a bowl after staying at home with a 4-8 record in 2012. The Hawkeyes four regular-season losses came to nationally ranked Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, teams that took a combined record of 45-6 into the Rose, Orange, Capital One and Poinsettia bowls. LSUs first trip to Tampa since 1989, when the Outback was known as the Hall of Fame Bowl, capped another successful season under Les Miles, but one that fell short of expectations for a program accustomed to contending for national titles. Besides a three-touchdown loss to Alabama, the Tigers dropped three-point decisions to SEC rivals Georgia and Mississippi, while also displaying their potential by being the only team to defeat No. 2 Auburn during the regular season. Jennings came off the bench in the closing minutes to finish a comeback victory over Arkansas in the regular-season finale, leading a 99-yard game-winning drive that he finished with a 49-yard TD pass. Miles expected Jennings to play well, citing poise as one of the 19-year-olds strongest assets. Iowa didnt have much film to study of the young quarterback, but Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz said any newcomer who entered a program such as LSUs and rose to No. 2 on the depth chart as a true freshman figured to have the makings of a star. And with a talented supporting cast around him, Jennings didnt have to carry the Tigers on his back Wednesday. Hill and receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry combined with Mettenberger this season to make LSU the first team in SEC history to feature a 3,000-yard passer, two 1,000-yard receivers and a 1,000-yard rusher in the same year. And the Tigers didnt stray from the formula that made them one of the leagues top offences. Hill broke a 42-yard run on his first carry, setting the tone against an Iowa defence that entered yielding just under 121 yards per game rushing and a little more than 303 overall, third in the Big Ten and seventh nationally. Seven plays later, Jennings finished a 77-yard drive with his 2-yard TD run. "It was a gutsy performance by Iowa," Miles said. "We had a great amount of respect for them coming in and they showed that respect was well earned." ' ' '

BARCELONA, Spain -- Lionel Messi ended Barcelonas run of three straight losses and kept it in the Spanish league title chase by scoring a late free kick to complete its 2-1 comeback win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. Dallas Stars Shirts . Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. Barcelona was on its way to another defeat when Aritz Aduriz scored in the 50th, provoking a smattering of white handkerchiefs in the Camp Nou stands, but Pedro Rodriguez equalized when he slotted in Alexis Sanchezs scuffed strike in the 72nd. Barcelona still needed defender Javier Mascherano to block Mikel Ricos point-blank try in injury time to protect the three points after Cristian Tello had wasted one of numerous opportunities to put the result beyond doubt. "After the first half I thought that this wasnt to be our day after missing so many chances," said Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino, whose job probably depends on Barcelona catching Atletico to defend its title. "But we kept fighting. We played with a lot of heart to overcome a difficult week and a game that had turned against us. Messi defends himself on the pitch and I am happy for him." Barcelona moved provisionally into second place, four points behind leader Atletico Madrid. Madrid is two points behind Barcelona but with a game to play. Messi set up his winner after earning a foul on the edge of the area, and the Argentina forward used his left foot to finally beat Gorka Iraizoz after the goalkeeper had denied him twice. While not exactly his electrifying old self, Messi was active creating scoring chances from the start, but Alexis Sanchez sent Pedros pass off the bar from close range in the 38th. Barcelonas attack was working. Its defence, however, showed the same frailties that have plagued it in the second half of the season. Adurizs beautiful bicycle kick crashed into the post before goalkeeper Jose Pinto palmed away Markel Susaetas follow-up at the half-hour mark. The patience of Barcelonas fans began to fray when Bartra lost the ball near his area and Aduriz expertly drove the ball into the corner of the net. And when Messi sent the ball wide one-on-one against Iraizoz a collective groan filled the stadium. But Pedro was finally able to steer the ball in when Dani Alves began a move from the right flank to start Barcelona on its way to a much-needed victory. "We knew that after all the opinions and criticism that we have received that we had to do our job and be professionals," Mascherano said. "We have to hold on to that small hope that if we win our games we can then see what happens. We cant just let (Atletico and Madrid) slip up and not be there." Bilbaos loss put its hold on fourth place and the last Champions League in danger after Sevilla closed the gap to three points by thrashing Granada 4-0, with the Basques hosting the Andalusian side next round. Sevilla, which opens its Europa League semifinal against Valencia on Thursday, eased past Granada thanks to Diego Mainzs own goal and goals by Kevin Gameiro, Stephane Mbia and Victor Machin. Celta Vigo outclassed Almeria with a 4-2 away win as forward Manuel "Nolito" Agudo netted a double, and Paulao scored one goal and set up another, but both for the wrong team, as bottom-side Real Betis slumped to a demoralizing 3-1 defeat at Rayo Vallecano. Celta kept Almeria in the relegation zone thanks to Nolitos brace and goals by fellow forwards Charles and Fabian Orellana, while Rafina set up two scores. Paulaos nightmare began in the 14th when he left his back pass woefully short of reaching goalkeeper Adan Garrido, and Rochina Raixes poached the ball to roll it in. The Brazilian defender followed that mistake by clearing a cross into his own net in the 27th. Paulao asked to be substituted and was replaced five minutes later, with the Rayo fans in Vallecas Stadium politely applauding him to show their support. Betis was left on the brink of relegation, 10 points from safety with four games to go. Dallas Stars Store .

They couldnt get on top of the high heater.After DJ LeMahieus one-out single in the seventh chased Stults, he was replaced by Nick Vincent.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Braves took advantage of a little help from their opposition. Terry Kirby Jersey . Justin Upton had two hits and three RBIs, and the Atlanta Braves were helped by two straight Ryan Howard errors in a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. Tommy La Stella hit a three-run triple and Chris Johnson drove in two runs for the Braves, who have won four of five. Atlanta trailed 2-0 before tying it in the fourth on two unearned runs. "You make an error and give teams extra opportunities, and sometimes theyll make you pay for it," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We only got two runs out of those errors, but it got us back in the game. You have to take advantage of those. If you give opportunities to good baseball teams, theyre going to get you." Tony Gwynn Jr. and Ben Revere had a pair of hits for the slumping Phillies, who have lost six of eight. Philadelphia scored three runs or less for the 40th time, dropping to 7-33 in those contests. The Phillies also fell to 18-25 at hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park, where they entered Saturday batting .229 as a team. While the offence didnt shine, it was the defence that really let Philadelphia down this time. Howard made two costly errors in the fourth inning, resulting in two unearned runs that allowed the Braves to tie the game at 2. Freddie Freemans hard-hit grounder went through Howards legs and the error put runners on second and third. "It was a possible double-play ball and we wouldve been out of the inning," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "It changed the whole game." The next batter, Upton, hit a medium grounder to first but reached safely when Howard bobbled and then lost control of the ball. Simmons scored on that error and Freeman, who went to third on the play, then reached on Jason Heywards groundout to first. Fans gave a sarcastic cheer when Howard made the putout of Heyward. "We have to tighten up on the defensive end," Sandberg said. Atlanta then went ahead in the sixth on Uptons two-run double off the wall in left. The teams were scheduled to play the nightcap at 7:15, with Atlanta right-hander David Hale (3-2, 2.72) facing Phillies right-hander Sean OSullivan, who is making his 2014 debut after being called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the spot start. Ervin Santana (6-5) snapped a four-game winless streak after allowing two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk in 6 2/3 innings. Santana had lost his last three starts with a 5.89 ERA in those outings. But he was strong after the first two innings against the Phillies, retiring nine straight during one stretch and surrendering just three hits after the second inning. "It was a great effort," Gonzalez said. "We were looking for that kind of outing to be able to save the bullpen." Said Santana, "In the first inning, a couple pitches were up. After that, I just made a good adjustment and kept the ball down for the most part." Roberto Hernandez (3-7) didnt allow a hit through 3 1-3 innings and ended up giving up just three hits in seven innings with two strikeouts and three walks. Two of the four runs he allowed were unearned. "His pitching was better than his line," Sandberg said. "The defence let him down in the fourth inning, but he hung in there and pitched pretty well." The Braves broke the game open in the eighth when they scored five runs off Antonio Bastardo, snapping an 11 1-3 inning scoreless streak for the Philadelphia bullpen. La Stella had the big blow, a bases-clearing triple that pushed the Atlanta lead to 8-2. It was the first career triple for the rookie La Stella, who had two hits in his last 30 at-bats prior to the hit. The Phillies jumped in front 2-0. Gwynn Jr. snapped an 0-for-23 skid by tripling with one out in the first and scored on Howards single to left. It was Gwynns first hit since the June 16 death of his Hall of Fame father. Hernandez helped himself in the second inning when he recorded his first career RBI by singling home Koyie Hill. Notes: Hill, a catcher, was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday after Carlos Ruiz was placed on the 7-day DL with concussion-like symptoms. Philadelphias regular backup catcher, Will Nieves, has been on the DL since June 19 with a right quad strain. . Atlanta C Evan Gattis, who left due to back spasms after striking out in the first inning on Friday night, didnt play. His replacement, Gerald Laird, went 0-for-3. . Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason, in town for the NHL Draft at the Wells Fargo Center Friday and Saturday, was in attendance. . Following the second game of Saturdays doubleheader, the Phillies and Braves will conclude their four-game series at 1:35 Sunday afternoon with Atlanta RHP Aaron Harang (6-6, 3.78) facing Philadelphia RHP David Buchanan (4-3, 4.79). Richard Dent Jersey . His fellow Finn, 21 years his junior, had just arrived in Anaheim and was hoping to stick with the Ducks. Junior Seau Jersey . Ibrahimovic put PSG ahead when he got in front of his marker to neatly flick in Lucass cross in the 59th minute. New signing Yohan Cabaye came on as a second-half substitute and headed Ezequiel Lavezzis cross against the post in the 87th. Moments later, Lucas set up another goal from the right when fellow countryman Alex turned in his corner with a strikers finish.NEW YORK JETS (3-12) at MIAMI (8-7)Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Dolphins by 6RECORD VS.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. Zack Greinke Jersey . -- Frank Klopas was happy with his players effort Saturday night. The officiating, on the other hand, left the Montreal Impact coach frustrated and angry. Dillon Powers scored on an early penalty kick to give the Colorado Rapids a 1-0 lead, and three goals in the second half helped them cruise to a 4-1 win over Montreal. Klopas expressed his dissatisfaction with referee Chris Penso, who made the call that awarded Colorado the penalty kick, after the game. "We were controlling the game and its unfortunate," Klopas said. "When the referee is a protagonist in the game its never good. So its a shame. He did a very, very poor job. For me, he had a very bad game." Powers, Kamani Hill and Shane ONeill scored in the second half as Colorado (5-4-3) snapped a two-game losing streak. Powers penalty-kick goal came in the fifth minute of the match, on what the Impact considered a borderline call on midfielder Sanna Nyassi. "Whatever the call was they still had a point-blank shot that was saved," midfielder Justin Mapp said. "Looks like a pretty good advantage to me. Not sure what the call is there." For a team that has struggled to find some footing away from home it was a tough night. The Impact (1-6-4) kept it close until the second half, but Colorado scored two goals in a span of five minutes to put it away. Anders Romero scored the lone goal for Montreal, which is now 0-4-2 on the road. "For us, we have to regroup fast," Klopas said. "We have the Canadian final coming up." The Impact had some chances right after Powers penalty kick but couldnt cash in. Mapp got through the defence on the left side and put a shot on Colorado goalie Clint Irwin, who made the save in the eighth minute. Mapp had another chance in the 16th minute but couldnt convert, and he hit a post in the 50th minute with his team down just a goal. He also was taken down in the box but no call was made, which didnt sit well with the Impact. "I thought so but I might be a little biased," Mapp said when asked if the takedown should have resulted in a penalty kick. An offside call that negated a goal by Issey Nakajima-Farran in the 66th minute added to the frustration. "I know the game is fast and people make mistakes, but today when we can talk mainly about the decisions of the referee its never good," Klopas said. The Rapids had several chances early but some good defence and key saves kept the Impact close. Deshorn Brown got a step on midfielder Patrice Bernier and then deked goaltender Troy Perkins in the 14th minute, but as Brown got a low shot off, Bernier slid behind Perkins to kick away the shot. "Once he dribbled I saw he didnt really see me coming from behind," Brenier said. "I dove, made a play and kept us at 1-0. Cant give up." Later, Brown leaped over midfielder Wandrille Lefevre but hit the post. Those near misses didnt cost the Rapids, however. Goals by Hill in the 54th minute and ONeill in the 59th gave the Rapids a 3-0 lead. Hills goal, his first since October 2012, came at the top of the box and faded over Perkins outstretch arm. ONeill dropped his shot over Perkins and just under the crossbar to make it 3-0. Powers finished the rout when he spun at the top of the box and sent a low shot past Perkins in the 84th minute for his second of the game. Romero scored his second goal of the season with a strong individual effort. He took the ball from the sideline, dribbled past three defenders and beat Irwin with a shot to the far post in the 88th minute. "It was a great goal. It just seems for us we have to score a goal for the Oscars," Klopas said. "We had some good chances. It is what it is. My players, they gave everything. Theres nothing I can complain about." Rogelio Armenteros Jersey . His apology came before a pregame ceremony in which the team honoured its 2004 team that won Bostons first World Series championship since 1918. "I realize that I behaved bad in Boston," Ramirez said. Will Harris Jersey . TSN was honoured with several awards, with Rod Smith and James Duthie sharing the win for Best Sports Host for SportsCentre and the NHL: Season On The Brink coverage, respectively.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Gary Kubiak is John Elways No. 2 again.The Denver Broncos general manager and executive vice-president was hashing out a four-year contract with his former backup QB to become the teams head coach, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press on Sunday night.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement wasnt expected to be announced until Monday with an introductory news conference Tuesday.Kubiak replaces John Fox, who was ousted last Monday following Denvers stunning playoff loss to home to Indianapolis. Elway complained that Foxs teams didnt show enough fire in big games. Fox was hired as the Chicago Bears new coach on Friday.Elway and team president and CEO Joe Ellis met with Kubiak in Houston for several hours Sunday.Kubiak was Elways backup from 1983-91 and Denvers offensive co-ordinator from 1995-2005 under Mike Shanahan. He helped build the blueprint for the back-to-back Super Bowls the Broncos won that capped Elways Hall of Fame playing career.Hall of Fame finalist and NFL Network analyst Terrell Davis, Elways co-pilot on those title runs in 1997 and 98, said: Oh, man, if its Kubiak, that would be great. Id love to see him back in Denver. John Elway said at the podium the other day that he knew what it took to win a championship. Well, who else was there when he won a championship? Kubiak.Kubiak, who was the Ravens offensive co-ordinator this past season, went 63-66, counting the playoffs, as head coach of the Texans from 2006-13. He had a health scare during that last season in Houston and was fired by the Texans with three games left.Although Kubiak, 53, gets a second chance in Denver, his comeback actually began in Baltimore last season.Under Kubiak, the Ravens improved from 30th in the league in rushing to eighth and Joe Flaccos sacks dropped from 48 to 19. Kubiak bypassed chances to interview for the head coaching vacancies with the Bears and the Jets, saying he was happy in Baltimore.That was before his dream job opened up last Monday.Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris Jr., told the AP Sunday night that he didnt know much about Kubiaks deep history in Denver.I just know he was the offensive co-ordinator for the Ravens last year and he did a great job, Harris said. Im excited to meet him andd get the season rolling. Custom Jeff Bagwell Jersey. From all Im hearing, hell be a great hire, Harris added. I know hes getting a lot of talent here and were ready to get rolling together.Kubiak will be the 15th head coach in Broncos history, and talks between him and Elway surely included discussions about Kubiaks health. Kubiak collapsed at halftime of a Texans game in 2013 but quickly returned to the sideline.Elway interviewed two other candidates: Broncos offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase and Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph. Two others, former Bills head coach Doug Marrone and Lions defensive co-ordinator Teryl Austin, withdrew their names as it became clear that Kubiak was the heavy favourite.Kubiak takes over a team that may or may not have Peyton Manning under centre in 2015. The five-time MVP is mulling his future after a promising season turned sour down the stretch and ended unexpectedly with a 24-13 loss to his former team in the AFC divisional round.Elway asked Manning not to make a rash decision and said he wont need an answer for a few weeks. Manning, who turns 39 in March, is due $19 million each of the next two seasons.If he decides to retire, the Broncos would give a long look to Brock Osweiler, whom Elway drafted in the second round in 2012 and who has served a three-year apprenticeship under Manning.Manning pulled out of next weeks Pro Bowl because a strained right thigh hasnt gotten much better since his season ended. He was one of the Broncos league-high 10 Pro Bowlers, only two of whom are pending free agents — Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas — and Elway said re-signing them were his top priorities once he found a new coach.Kubiak is expected to bring Ravens quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison with him back to Denver. Dennison has served as an assistant with Kubiak in Denver, Houston and Baltimore. Joseph, who was Kubiaks secondary coach in Houston, could emerge as Denvers new defensive co-ordinator, too.Among assistants who could stay in Denver include running backs coach Eric Studesville, quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp and strength & conditioning coach Luke Richesson.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton ' ' '
