MIAMI -- Dee Gordon was a headache for the Miami Marlins for 11 innings at the plate
#1
MIAMI -- Dee Gordon was a headache for the Miami Marlins for 11 innings at the plate, on the bases and in the field. Nike Air Max 270 Womens Sale . Carl Crawford came off the bench to make his impact with a single swing. Crawford snapped a slump with a two-run pinch-hit homer in the 11th, and the Los Angeles Dodgers escaped several late-inning jams to beat the Miami Marlins 9-7 on Saturday night. Gordon drove in two runs, scored twice, contributed a defensive gem at second base and stole three bases to increase his total to 19, most in the majors. Hes 8 for 11 in the series to hike his average to .357. "Hes hitting .350, hes stealing bags, hes playing good defence," manager Don Mattingly said. "You cant really ask a whole lot more." Gordon became the first Dodgers player since at least 1914 to have five or more hits and three or more stolen bases in a game, according to STATS. The last major league player to do it was Jimmy Rollins of the Phillies in 2008. "Im just trying to help us win any way possible," Gordon said. Crawford echoed that sentiment. He was held out of the starting lineup because he was batting .185, and said the chance to circle the bases in the 11th was a "wonderful feeling." "When something like that happens, it uplifts you," he said. "Its a big lift for me, somebody looking for anything positive to get through the next day. To come through with a big hit like that and win the game, its definitely encouraging." Yasiel Puig hit a three-run homer for Los Angeles. The Marlins lost even though they tied a franchise record at Marlins Park with three home runs. They erased a 7-2 sixth-inning deficit but left the bases loaded in the eighth and ninth, and left two on in the 10th. "We get a hit in any of those situations, and its over," manager Mike Redmond said. Juan Uribe walked to start the 11th against Carlos Marmol (0-2), and with one out Crawford hit his first homer. "Hopefully its something that springboards him," Mattingly said. "Thats a big hit." Marmol said he made a mistake by throwing the pitch down the middle. "He hit it far," Marmol said. "I feel bad because the team played well." The squandered chances doomed the Marlins, however. They went 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position. Paul Maholm allowed three runs in six innings, but the Dodgers endured some wobbly relief pitching. With closer Kenley Jansen unavailable because of a heavy recent workload, Chris Perez took the mound in the ninth inning trying to protect a 7-6 lead. He loaded the bases and then walked pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia on a 3-2 pitch with one out to force in the tying run. Perez then retired Christian Yelich and Derek Dietrich to send the game into extra innings. The Marlins had runners at first and second with no outs in the 10th, but Brandon League (1-1) pitched out of the jam. Chris Withrow loaded the bases in the eighth before striking out NL RBI leader Giancarlo Stanton on three pitches to end the threat. "It was seesaw, but you see how the guys battled back," Gordon said. The Marlins Marcell Ozuna hit a three-run homer in the seventh off Brian Wilson, whose ERA rose to 12.91. Jeff Baker, who came into the game 4 for 40 this season, and Jeff Mathis both hit their first home run for Miami. The power surge compensated for a poor outing by Jacob Turner, who was activated from the disabled list before the game. He gave up nine hits and six runs in four innings. Notes: Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (strained back) threw a bullpen session before the game and is scheduled to come off the disabled list and start Tuesday at Washington. ... The Marlins had a scare during batting practice when ace Jose Fernandez collided in the outfield with strength and conditioning coach Ty Hill and both tumbled to the turf. The right-handed Fernandez took a shot in his left shoulder but said he wasnt hurt. ... Fernandez will try to improve his career home record to 13-0 Sunday in the series finale. RHP Stephen Fife, who started 15 games for the Dodgers in 2012-13, will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Sunday for LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder). RHP Jose Dominguez will be optioned to Albuquerque. ... Dodgers coach Davey Lopes celebrated his 69th birthday. Nike Air Max 270 Discount . Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points. Castillo opened the scoring in the 71st minute off a Mauro Diaz set piece, and Watson outran defender Tony Lochhead on a long ball and then juked goalkeeper Ian Kennedy for the eventual game-winner in the 78th minute. Air Max 270 Just Do It White .Balotelli uploaded on Instagram a picture of the video-game character Super Mario, with whom the Italy international shares a nickname, with text around the image including jumps like a black man and grabs coins like a Jew. http://www.max270cheap.com/air-max-270-mens-sale.html . Playing in his fourth major league game, Polanco broke a tie in the 13th inning with his first homer, helping Pittsburgh to an 8-6 victory over the Miami Marlins after the Pirates had a ninth-inning meltdown.RENTON, Wash. - It was not a simple season for Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider, from the preseason holdout of Marshawn Lynch to the midseason trade of Percy Harvin.Even celebrating the Seahawks second straight NFC championship didnt come at a time when Schneider could fully appreciate it with the Seahawks preparing for free agency and the draft.Right after the game was pretty exciting in the locker room knowing that we were going back, Schneider said, and had done something no one else had done in 10 years is pretty special and a true testament to everybody in the football operations, especially the players and the coaches.Seattles typically quiet general manager spoke with local writers for the first time since last Mays draft on Friday. It was Schneiders first comments since Seattle made the surprising midseason trade of Harvin to the New York Jets.Schneider had been in conversations with a number of teams about moving Harvin. The Jets lost at New England in a Thursday night game and almost immediately began aggressively pursuing a deal that was finalized the next day.We took a shot for a highly explosive player. For a number of different reasons, it didnt work out and we knew that we had to resolve that situation as quickly as we could so that we could just move forward as a football team, as an organization, Schneider said of Harvin. It was a very hard decision, one that we didnt make overnight.While the trade caught the team by surprise, Schneider felt it was handled well by the staff and he didnt believe that was the cause of Seattle losing at St. Louis that weekend.I thought everybody handled it as well as it could possibly be, especially that weekend, he said. As far as it affecting thhat game, I cant tell you if it did or not. Cheap Nike Air Max 270. . Thats always been a very tough place for us to play. The previous year, we won on a goal-line stand down there, so I think its always been a very tough play for us, so Im not sure if that had an effect on that specific game, but I know that after that, we were really able to kind of get our feet back under us.Before the season started, Schneider had to deal with the brief holdout of Lynch during the first week of training camp before his contract was restructured. There have been various reports that Seattle is ready to move on from Lynch, but Schneider only had praise for his star running back.Hes under contract next year. Hes a warrior. Goes out there every weekend and lays it on the line, he said. I think youd be hard-pressed to find a better running back in the National Football League.Once the Super Bowl ends, Schneider can turn his attention to trying to keep the Seahawks together. Seattle has already locked up linebacker K.J. Wright and defensive end Cliff Avril with new deals and can extend quarterback Russell Wilson this off-season.We dont have a timetable, Schneider said of Wilson. At the appropriate time, we are able to speak to his representatives and well do that.Seattle doesnt have many unrestricted free agents, but the one expected to draw the most interest is cornerback Byron Maxwell.That, quite frankly, is one of our first priorities is to talk to (Maxwell), Schneider said. Now I think he, like a lot of our other unrestricted guys, I think he is going to be highly sought after and he should be. But we would at least like to have the opportunity to retain him.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
