Saints coach Sean Payton expressed concern on Monday that his first-place team eventually will falter if it fails to improve the way it defends snaps from within 20 yards of its own goal line."There's a ton of football left Cheap Marcus Williams Jersey ," said Payton, whose Saints (7-1) are riding a seven-game winning streak as they prepare to travel to Cincinnati (5-3). "There's a ton of things we have to improve on and we need to improve on, or it's going to hurt us later. Red zone defense 鈥?that has to get better."While Payton emphasized that there are a number of corrections that need to be made from week to week, a half-season's worth of poor numbers on red zone snaps is "the one area that is bothering me."Saints opponents have scored touchdowns on 20 of 28 drives (71.4 percent) that have included at least one play run from inside the Saints 20. That ranks 28th out of 32 teams in defensive red zone efficiency."You can't find any team having success later in the season with the numbers that we currently have," Payton warned. "We've got to find a way to improve that."Payton's caution comes even as his team holds the inside track to the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs following a 45-35 victory over the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. In that game, the Rams ran red-zone plays on five separate possessions. Three of those drives ended with touchdowns, one ended with a field goal and another ended when the Rams were stopped just short of a first down on a fake field goal.Technically, that represented an improvement in defensive red-zone efficiency relative to the club's percentage over eight games. It just wasn't good enough to allay Payton's anxiety.Because the Saints are scoring nearly 35 points per game, they're likely to win even if their defense gives up a lot of yards, as long as it thrives at stopping opponents short of the end zone and forcing field goals 鈥?or creating turnovers.Linebacker Damario Davis said the key to improving in the red zone is preparing better during the week for the plays that upcoming opponents have been most adept at running in that area of the field."It comes down to understanding how teams want to attack you down there and being locked into what they're going to try to do," Davis said. "Knowing your assignment and doing your assignment 鈥?I just think it comes down to that."But Davis also suggested that the Saints defense won't want to become so preoccupied with its red zone play that it neglects other aspects of the game plan."We have our goals every week. All of them are important," Davis said. "You've got to be good in the red zone. You've got to be good on third down. You've got to be good on first and second down in the pass game. You've got to stop the run. You've got to find a way to get takeaways. Those are our goals every week. When we do those http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-auth...x-okafor-jersey , we're usually successful. When we don't, it's not a good day." The 2018 New Orleans Saints have been an enigmatic team: coming into the season with all sorts of high expectations, the Saints were thoroughly dominated by the Tampa Bay Bucs in the season opener, then squeaked by the Cleveland Browns in week two.The task was not getting any easier this afternoon in Atlanta, as the Saints faced their division archrival, the Atlanta Falcons, with each team looking to go to 2-1 and put their opponent in an early divisional hole.1st HALF The Saints came out of the gate smoking, after the Falcons had won the toss and deferred to the second half. New Orleans marched 75 yards down the field in a blink to take a 7-0 lead on a Drew Brees’ pass to Ted Ginn Jr. The Falcons would answer on their second possession, with Matt Ryan finding Calvin Ridley who abused P.J. Williams on that drive, to tie the game at 7. The Saints defense would tighten things up, with rookie Marcus Davenport notching his first NFL sack. Drew Brees and the offense would flirt with the end zone but only come up with field goals to extend the Saints lead to 13-7. In the process, Brees became the NFL all-time leader in completions when he reached 6 http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-auth...-ginn-jr-jersey ,301, passing Brett Favre.The Falcons would wrestle the lead back in a two-play, 75-yard drive that saw Calvin Ridley continue to roast P.J. Williams, catching a 75-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan and giving Atlanta a 14-13 lead after the extra point. After a punt by the Saints, the defense forced the Falcons into a three-and-out, giving the Saints the ball back with 40 seconds left. In two passes to Alvin Kamara and Benjamin Watson, the Saints got into field goal and Wil Lutz converted a 45-yard field goal to give New Orleans a 16-14 lead at halftime.2nd HALFThe Falcons started the second half with the ball, quickly getting into the Saints red zone on a pass interference by Ken Crawley on the unstoppable Calvin Ridley. Matt Ryan would find Ridley again for a touchdown, giving the Falcons a 21-16 lead. After a punt by the Saints, the defense would step up once again and force the Falcons into a punt, which was blocked by the Saints. Craig Robertson returned the punt to Atlanta’s 16-yard line. Drew Brees would then find Cameron Meredith for his first touchdown as a Saint to put New Orleans back in front 23-21.The Falcons would not wait to respond, driving right down the field on their next possession Cheap Alex Anzalone Jersey , with Matt Ryan hitting running back Tevin Coleman for a touchdown, and the Falcons converting the two-point try to retake the lead 29-23. In a game of: “anything you can do I can do better,” the Saints marched right down the field, actually mixing up the run and the pass and using a Wild Cat formation to run Taysom Hill deep into Falcons territory. On 4th and goal from the one-yard line, Drew Brees found fullback Zach Line for a touchdown and the see-saw after continued with New Orleans taking a 30-29 lead, the seventh lead change of the game.The Falcons would waste no time getting back into the Saints’ red zone on a 58-yard bomb to Julio Jones. The Saints thought they had held Atlanta to a field goal try, but a personal foul by David Onyemata who hit the center on the field goal attempt gave the Falcons a first-and-goal. On the very next play, Matt Ryan hit Mohamed Sanu for a touchdown, followed by a two-point conversion to Sanu again, to give the Falcons a 37-30 lead.What did you expect would happen? Of course, the Saints then drove right down the field and into Falcons territory on the back of runs by Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn Jr. and they would get into the end zone with a run by none other than quarterback Drew Brees himself. Wil Lutz would tie the game at 37, with a minute and 15 seconds left in the game. The Falcons would have one last chance to go ahead http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/...ersey-authentic , but the Saints defense stopped them to take the game into overtime.OvertimeThe Saints would win the toss and take the ball, immediately driving deep into Falcons territory. Never giving the Falcons a chance to possess the ball, New Orleans would punch it in the end zone with Drew Brees’ patented “Fleur-de-Leap” to give the good guys a 43-37 win. Phew! and WHO DAT Y’ALL, the Saints are 2-1***Below is a timeline of the game:1st QuarterFalcons win the toss and defer to the second halfBrees finds Michael Thomas for a 39-yard reception on the first playSaints get into the red zone in the blink of an eyeBrees finds Ted Ginn Jr. for a touchdownNO: 7 - ATL: 0Falcons take over at their 25-yard lineSaints defense forces the Falcons into a three-and-outSaints take over at their 21-yard lineSaints go three-and-out and have to puntFalcons take over at their 19-yard lineFalcons get into Saints territoryMatt Ryan finds Calvin Ridley for a touchdownNO: 7 - ATL: 7Saints start at their 25-yard lineSaints get into Falcons territory at the 44-yard line as the quarter ends2nd QuarterSaints’ drive stalls and they puntFalcons start at their 20-yard Marcus Davenport sacks Matt Ryan and forces the Falcons to puntSaints take over at their 38-yard line and get into Falcons territoryBrees ties Brett Favre for the all-time lead in completions in the NFL at 6,300Saints stall and Wil Lutz makes a 49-yard field goalNO: 10 - ATL: 7Falcons take over at their 25-yard lineFalcons stall and have to puntSaints take over at their 27-yard lineBrees finds Michael Thomas for apass near midfieldBrees is now the all-time leader in completions in the NFL with 6,301Saints get into the red zone on a pass to Ben WatsonSaints stall and Wil Lutz makes a 21-yard field goalNO: 13 - ATL: 7Falcons take over at their 25-yard lineMatt Ryan finds Calvin Ridley who roasts P.J.

The 100th edition of the bitter Saints-Falcons feud turned into a Thanksgiving celebration for the New Orleans Saints and their fans in front of a national audience. New Orleans bludgeoned their longtime rivals to win their tenth consecutive game. The game was close statistically Youth Alex Okafor Jersey , but the Saints maintained control throughout the game, taking a 17-3 lead into the halftime break and cruising to a 31-17 victory. Drew Brees did throw his second interception of the season, but also threw four touchdown passes in another deadly efficient performance. Michael Thomas caught four first half passes, but the team's complimentary targets stepped up, even without Tre'Quan Smith in the lineup. Brees' scoring tosses went to Tommylee Lewis, Dan Arnold, Austin Carr, and Keith Kirkwood, all undrafted coming out of college. Although the Saints offensive line did allow their first sack in four games, they controlled the Atlanta front seven, paving the way for 150 rushing yards. The New Orleans defense allowed just 26 yards on the ground, forced four turnovers, and sacked Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan six times, harassing him all evening. The Saints secondary did give up 23 receptions and 314 receiving yards to the Falcons talented threesome of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley http://www.saintsauthorizedshops.com/authe...-ramczyk-jersey , and Mohamed Sanu, but came up with a few game changing big plays in the red zone. Safety Marcus Williams had a key sack, fumble, and recovery to end Atlanta's first scoring drive. Marshon Lattimore, Eli Apple, P.J. Williams, and Vonn Bell provided physical coverage all evening, and together accounted for two fumbles forced and two recoveries near the New Orleans goal line. With no Saints football this Sunday, let's have some Thanksgiving football leftovers and hand out game balls for another solid team performance. CAM JORDAN Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesCameron Jordan added another chapter of dominance against the Falcons throughout his career. Jordan had 2 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, and 3 quarterback hits on Thursday night, continually destroying the right side of their line. In sixteen career games against Atlanta, Jordan now has 12 sacks and 28 total hits on their quarterback. He had a game indicative of his season, one that almost surely has him headed to his second straight All-Pro recognition. ALVIN KAMARA Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsComing into this game, it looked like Atlanta might have trouble matching up with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram without their best defensive player Alex Anzalone Jersey , linebacker Deion Jones.The two backs combined for 141 rushing yards on 25 carries, led by Kamara's 89 yards. He exploded for 18 yards on the game's opening play, and consistently slashed his way through the Falcons defense for key yardage. Kamara's versatile talents and gamebreaking skills were undeniable last year when he won the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year. He has gone on to prove this season that he is capable of filling the role as a top every down back, capable of picking up tough yards inside the tackles. SHELDON RANKINS Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesRankins continued his monstrous season, getting immediate penetration into the Falcons backfield numerous times to derail a running play or put pressure on Ryan. He finished with just two tackles, but both were for losses, including 1 sack. The Saints first round pick in 2016 also had a number of other pressures on during the game, flushing Ryan into a sack by a teammate.Rankins is having the best season of his career by far, and is finally being mentioned among the best interior linemen in the league. THE LINEBACKERS Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesThis may not be the second coming of The Dome Patrol, but it is almost certainly the best linebacking unit that the Saints have had in decades. Demario Davis, Alex Anzalone, and A.J. Klein combined for 16 tackles (2 for loss), 1 sack (Davis), 2 forced fumbles (Anzalone, Davis) Authentic Josh LeRibeus Jersey , and an interception (Klein). The linebackers complimented the standout play of their defensive line in making the Atlanta running attack nonexistent, holding them to just 1.6 yards per carry. Once a team weakness often exploited by teams such as Atlanta, these linebackers have become one of the Saints' many strengths, and the most improved unit on the team. Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesThe Saints now sit at 10-1, currently holding the top seed in the conference and a three game lead in the NFC South. The winning streak is the second longest in franchise history, and has New Orleans mentioned as one of the primary Super Bowl favorites heading into the home stretch of the season. The Saints cannot afford a letdown however, with no margin for error and perhaps the league's toughest schedule over the final five games. Next up are the NFC East leading Dallas Cowboys, who are on a win streak of their own. Despite the daunting schedule ahead of them, New Orleans seems well equipped to handle the challenge. Thursday night was another complete performance, a domination of a despised rival, and Thanksgiving dessert to an excited fanbase. KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The New England Patriots are in their eighth consecutive conference championship game and trying to reach the Super Bowl for the fourth time in five seasons and the ninth time overall in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era.The Kansas City Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, are hosting the AFC title game for the first time at Arrowhead Stadium, and are trying to get to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1969 season.One thing that is unusual is that the Patriots are a slight underdog against the top-seeded Chiefs."We're going against a team that's the No. 1 seed in the league Youth Austin Carr Jersey ," Brady said after the team's final practice on Friday. "I'm sure there's a lot of people that are thinking they're going to win. Everyone can have their own opinion. We certainly have an opinion, and we've got to go out there and execute our best in order to accomplish that."On the NFC side, the Los Angeles Rams are back inside the stadium where they lost for the first time this season, looking for retribution and a Super Bowl berth as they face the New Orleans Saints in the NFC championship game.The Superdome is coming alive for the last time this football season as predominantly Saints fans arrive for just the second NFC title game to be held at the site of seven Super Bowls.The previous time the Saints hosted a game this late in a season, they pulled out a hair-raising overtime triumph over Minnesota en route to their first Super Bowl appearance 鈥?and championship.That was the 2009 season. Some nine seasons later, coach Sean Payton and 40-year-old, record-setting quarterback Drew Brees are back with a largely different cast, one victory away from the team's second trip to the NFL's biggest event.When these teams met in Week 9, running back C.J. Anderson had not yet joined Todd Gurley in the Rams' backfield and Los Angeles cornerback Aqib Talib was not healthy enough to play. Their availability puts the Rams in a stronger position than they were in back on Nov. 4, when they fell to New Orleans 45-35.This is the first NFC title game for Rams 32-year-old, second-year coach Sean McVay and his 24-year-old quarterback, Jared Goff.The winners that emerge from the conference championship games will meet in Atlanta on Feb. 3 in the Super Bowl.

SAN FRANCISCO — A beanball war between the Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants has the potential to spill over into Wednesday’s series finale http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authen...an-smith-jersey , with neither manager saying the book was closed after there were three hit batsmen and two ejections Tuesday night.

The ball will be in the hands of Marlins right-hander Jose Urena (2-8, 4.18 ERA) and Giants lefty Derek Holland (4-7, 4.48), with each team needing a victory to win the series after splitting a pair of emotional affairs the last two nights.

The Giants avenged Monday’s 5-4 loss with a 6-3 victory on Tuesday that featured Buster Posey hitting a home run and then getting hit by a pitch in his next at-bat.

It was exactly what Marlins manager Don Mattingly had promised when, in the top of the inning, he complained that both teams — not just the Giants — had received a warning when San Francisco starter Dereck Rodriguez hit Lewis Brinson with a pitch.

After a heated exchange with the umpires, Mattingly could be seen telling Posey, “You’re next.” Giants manager Bruce Bochy then jumped out of the dugout, having heard Mattingly tell the umpires, “If not tonight, then tomorrow.”

“I guess they thought they had to do something,” Bochy said of the Marlins, whose three-run, ninth-inning rally on Monday night included a key hit by Brinson, who celebrated by yelling at Giants closer Hunter Strickland on his way to first base.

On his way to the dugout after recording his fourth blown save later in the inning, Strickland walked near Brinson and the two exchanged words again.

Moments later, the emotional Strickland punched a door leading to the Giants’ clubhouse, breaking his right hand. He is expected to be out 6-8 weeks.

The Giants suffered a similar injury last week in Miami when third baseman Evan Longoria broke a finger when hit by a pitch.

Despite the warning and already down 3-0, Marlins starter Dan Straily hit Posey in the left shoulder in the bottom of the second inning http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authen...y-miller-jersey , resulting in the ejection of both Straily and Mattingly.

The feisty Marlins manager was seen patting Straily on the back as both headed down the runway toward the clubhouse after the ejections.

“There’s some fuzzy math going on,” Bochy said when asked if he thought Straily’s retaliation evened the score for the Giants plunking Brinson. “I’ve got a third baseman out 6-8 weeks. And I got a guy (Kelby Tomlinson) hit in the back (Monday) night.”

The veteran Giants skipper went on to say anything’s possible in the series finale.

“We’re men,” he boasted. “This happens in baseball. It won’t be the last time.”

Intention or no intention, the Marlins’ Urena has been troubled by hit batsmen this season, having already plunked eight batters, tied for the fifth-most in the majors.

He has faced the Giants three times in his career, twice as a starter, and has gone 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA.

The Giants’ Holland, on the other hand, is about as unlikely to hit a batter as any pitcher in the game. He has plunked just one of the 306 guys he has faced this season.

Holland has pitched just once in his career against the Marlins, and it was a disaster. Facing a lineup that included Hanley Ramirez and Giancarlo Stanton, Holland gave up five runs and four hits in two-thirds of an inning while pitching for Texas in 2011.

Aksel Lund Svindal made a triumphant return to the hill where a downhill crash almost ended his career two years ago.

In the opening event of the 78th Hahnenkamm races, the 2010 Olympic super-G champion led a Norwegian 1-2 finish ahead of Kjetil Jansrud on Friday in the last World Cup race in the discipline before the Pyeongchang Games.

It was Svindal’s 16th career super-G victory but first since winning in Kitzbuehel in 2016, a day before he badly injured his right knee. He was thrown off the course, landed in the safety netting on the Streif and underwent surgery for a ruptured ACL and damaged meniscus. Months later, he said the injury had nearly forced him into retirement.

On Friday, Svindal dominated the super-G, which was delayed and moved to a different course higher up the hill because overnight snow and rain affected the lower part of the original course. The move meant the race included even more sections of the downhill course than usual.

Thousands of spectators followed the race on large video screens because the finish was out of sight.

”This is definitely something special. It was a special race with the finish high up on the hill,” said Svindal http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authe...tin-reid-jersey , who beat Jansrud by 0.50 seconds. ”Everyone was a bit nervous as we were not sure what to expect.”

Austrian teammates Matthias Mayer and Hannes Reichelt were third and fourth, 0.56 and 0.57 behind, respectively.

Josef Ferstl of Germany, who won the previous super-G in Val Gardena, Italy, last month, was 1.71 behind in 18th.

It was Svindal’s 35th career win, and 30th in a speed event, trailing only Austrian standout Hermann Maier’s total of 39 downhill and super-G wins.

Svindal, who will aim for his first downhill win in Kitzbuehel in Saturday’s race, finished in the top 10 of all three previous super-G races this season but had not reached the podium.

Still hampered by knee problems, Svindal believed his reduced training schedule affected his super-G form.

”In downhill you have training runs which give you more confidence,” he said. ”The downhill tomorrow will be very exciting but the weekend couldn’t have started better.”

Winning the last super-G before the Olympics does not make Svindal an obvious favorite for the Feb. 15 race in Jeongseon, South Korea. Only once did the winner of the last World Cup race also take the Olympic super-G title – in 1998 when Maier achieved the feat.

The result closed the gap in the super-G standings between Svindal and leader Jansrud to 46 points, with Vincent Kriechmayr another 14 points back in third place. The Austrian trailed Svindal by 1.29 seconds in 10th place on Friday.

Jansrud called the race ”a difficult super-G for all.”

”No one had experience on this course,” the 2014 Olympic super-G champion said. ”Aksel and I raced really well. Two moose on the podium, that makes us happy.”

After days of snow and rain, the weather was expected to improve for Saturday’s downhill.

Freddy Peralta is making it difficult for the Milwaukee Brewers to remove him from the rotation. Maybe they won’t.

Peralta pitched one-hit ball over seven scoreless innings Authentic Customized Vikings Jerseys , Jesus Aguilar hit one of Milwaukee’s three homers and the Brewers beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Tuesday night.

Peralta (3-0) allowed a leadoff double in the third to Adalberto Mondesi and also a walk in the second. The 22-year-old rookie was perfect otherwise, striking out 10 in his fourth major league start.

”He was wonderful,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ”The big thing to me, again, was just how he pounded the strike zone. That’s the common theme to me, is that if he’s not issuing free passes, he’s going to be tough. He did that tonight, just all over the strike zone.”

Aguilar, Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun homered off starter Jakob Junis (5-9), who has lost six straight.

Mondesi, called up June 17, hit his first homer this season with two outs in the eighth off Dan Jennings. Jacob Barnes got two outs in the ninth and Josh Hader retired one batter for his seventh save.

Peralta has not allowed a run in 13 innings, giving up three hits in two starts since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on June 19 when starter Zach Davies went on the disabled list.

”That hasn’t been a conversation,” Counsell said when asked about the rotation. ”He’s pitching well. If you keep pitching like that, it’s going to lead to more starts, for sure.”

Peralta was called up in May and allowed one hit in 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his debut, striking out 13 in a 7-3 win over Colorado. He gave up four runs in four innings without a decision in his second start Authentic Customized Patriots Jerseys , and then was sent down.

After three starts on the road, Peralta was pitching for the first time at Miller Park.

”I was waiting for this day to pitch in the Brewers stadium,” Peralta said. ”A lot of fans were waiting for this day, too. I’m really happy for this. I did the best job I could and it was awesome for me.”

Junis, who has not won since May 18, surrendered five runs, seven hits and three walks in five innings.

”I’m giving up a lot of runs on home runs,” said Junis, who has allowed three or more homers five times this season. ”If I keep it in the yard, I’d have a lot better chance of keeping some runs off the board. But, just a couple pitches that I’m leaving over the plate are getting handled.”

Yelich staked the Brewers to a 2-0 lead in the first with his 11th home run, sending a 3-0 pitch over the wall in left after a one-out double by Braun. Aguilar made it 3-0 with his team-leading 17th homer, a two-out solo shot to center in the third.

The Brewers extended the lead to 5-0 in the fifth when Eric Thames singled and Braun followed with his ninth home run and first since June 8.

Kansas City threatened in the second when Mondesi opened with a double to right. Junis bunted, but Aguilar charged from first, made a barehanded pickup and got Mondesi at third.

The Royals fell to 4-19 in the month of June, scoring just 48 runs in that span. They have scored one run or less in 18 games this season.

”We’re all frustrated,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. ”I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve never been a part of a month like this. An offensive drought like we’ve had all month long is pretty puzzling. There’s no answer for it I’ve never been through anything like this.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Brewers: CF Lorenzo Cain was placed on the 10-day DL (left groin strain) and OF Keon Broxton was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. … LHP Boone Logan was released. … 3B Travis Shaw Authentic Customized Saints Jerseys , who left Sunday’s game against St. Louis in the middle of his first at-bat, was not in the lineup and is day-to-day.

UP NEXT

Royals: LHP Danny Duffy (3-7, 5.18) starts the series finale Wednesday at Miller Park. After beginning the season 1-6 with a 6.88 ERA, he is 2-1 with a 2.87 ERA in his last six starts.

Brewers: LHP Brent Suter (8-4, 4.15) is 6-1 with a 3.12 ERA over his last seven starts. After no quality starts in his first 14, Suter has pitched seven innings in each of his last two, allowing one and two runs, respectively.




Lance Lynn gets the start Friday night when the Minnesota Twins continue a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles at Target Field.

Lynn’s 2018 season has not gone anywhere near the way he may have envisioned when he hit the free-agent market for the first time last fall, ending a six-year run with the Cardinals.

Instead of landing a lucrative, multi-year deal he went unsigned until late in spring training, when he agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract with the Minnesota Twins — approximately $5.4 million less than he would have earned under the Cardinals’ one-year qualifying offer he turned down last November.

After an abbreviated spring camp, Lynn got off to an abysmal start. He went 0-3 in his first five outings, posting an 8.37 ERA in those contests but finally got into a groove when the calendar flipped to May. He went 5-2 with a 2.88 ERA over his next nine turns.

Lynn, who is 5-7 with a 5.49 ERA for the season, continues his hit-or-miss season Friday after losing his last two starts. He is fresh off his worst outing of the season when he allowed seven runs on five hits and three walks, failing to get out of the second inning in an 11-10 loss at Wrigley Field on Sunday.

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester homered off Lynn during a disastrous second inning that also included Lynn failing to cover first on a routine grounder Authentic Customized Giants Jerseys , which kept the inning going long enough for the Cubs to take a big lead.

“We gave them an extra out,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said of Lynn’s gaffe. “I think that was the biggest thing that stuck out to me. An offense like that, outs when you don’t get them, that was problematic to me. The arithmetic says that was an extra five runs because of that particular play.”

Lynn is 1-1 with a 7.30 ERA in three games (two starts) versus Baltimore.

The Twins snapped a six-game losing streak in the series opener Thursday night and, in turn, extended the misery for the Orioles, who have lost three in a row and 10 of their last 11.

They’ll turn to Dylan Bundy (6-7, 3.75 ERA) to snap the skid. Baltimore plans to activate the right-hander from the disabled list Friday and get him back on the mound for the first time since suffering a sprained left ankle June 23.

He went 3-7 with a 4.46 ERA through his first 12 starts of the season but got hot in June, posting a 1.98 ERA while going 3-0 in four starts before suffering the injury while running the bases after collecting his first big league hit.

His return comes as the Orioles need to decide a course of action ahead of the trade deadline. At 24-62, Baltimore owns the worst record in baseball and will almost certainly be a seller as the deadline approaches.

The 25-year-old Dylan is in his third full big league season and still has three more years of team control, making him an intriguing candidate for a motivated buyer.

The Twins’ Logan Morrison has two home runs in 15 at-bats versus Bundy, who is 0-2 with a 3.60 ERA in four career games (three starts) versus Minnesota. Bundy faced the Twins in his first start of this season, giving up five hits over seven shutout innings in Baltimore’s 3-2 victory on March 29.

21 Jan 2019
Zach Eflin and the Phillies are on a roll.

Eflin pitched seven strong innings for his sixth straight victory Titans Game Jerseys , Andrew Knapp had the winning hit for the second straight game and Philadelphia beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 on Tuesday night for its 11th win in 16 games.

Rhys Hoskins had a two-run double, rookie Seranthony Dominguez pitched four outs for his eighth save and Maikel Franco made a game-saving defensive play for the Phillies, who pulled within 2 1/2 games of the Braves for first place in the NL East.

”It was a great team win,” Eflin said.

Eflin (7-2) allowed two runs and five hits with six strikeouts and no walks to become the first Phillies pitcher since Cliff Lee in 2011 to record six consecutive wins. The right-hander has a 1.91 ERA while striking out 34 and walking six in 37 2/3 innings over that stretch.

”More aggressive and trusting my pitches,” Eflin said.

The Phillies bullpen preserved the win, but it got interesting.

Tommy Hunter got the first two outs of the eighth before manager Gabe Kapler went to Dominguez with Orioles star Manny Machado up.

”One of the best hitters in the game, you try to neutralize him with your best bullet,” Kapler said.

Dominguez walked Machado and Mark Trumbo to load the bases for Chris Davis. Franco made a stellar diving play to his right at third base to snare Davis’ ground ball before throwing him out at first to keep the Phillies ahead 3-2. The out was upheld after an Orioles challenge.

”Play of the game,” Kapler said. ”Got us the win.”

Franco, who has been in and out of the lineup this season, cherished the out.

”I just tried to make a good play and make a good throw,” he said. ”I wanted that play so bad.”

Trumbo homered for Baltimore, which has dropped eight of nine.

”The effort was there,” Trumbo said. ”The frustration, it’s as much as you make of it.”

The game was delayed 1 hour, 25 minutes due to rain and played mostly under a persistent drizzle.

Philadelphia took a one-run lead in the fourth on Knapp’s two-out triple to right off Alex Cobb (2-10) that scored Nick Williams. Knapp, Philadelphia’s backup catcher, started two days after his game-ending homer in the 13th lifted the Phillies over the Nationals 4-3.

Cobb gave up three runs on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks in 6 2/3 innings.

Trumbo staked Baltimore to a 1-0 lead by crushing Eflin’s 94 mph fastball into the seats in left in the second.

Philadelphia went in front 2-1 in the third on Hoskins’ two-out double off the wall in left that scored Franco and Cesar Hernandez.

CHEERS FOR MANNY

Machado, speculated to be a target of the Phillies either via trade or free agency, was loudly cheered when he was introduced by PA announcer Dan Baker prior to the contest.

EFLIN’S BLISTER

Eflin was pulled after just 82 pitches Redskins Game Jerseys , and Kapler said that was partly because of a blister on Eflin’s right middle finger. Eflin said he was ready and able to continue if asked. Eflin was hampered consistently by blisters last season, but Tuesday was his first time dealing with one this year.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Orioles: OF Colby Rasmus has been placed on the restricted list after informing the club that he was leaving the team. Rasmus has struggled with a left hip injury for two seasons. He was hitting .133 with one homer in 18 games this season after signing a one-year, $3 million deal in the offseason. … INF Steve Wilkerson (left oblique) was placed on the 10-day DL. Wilkerson, who is 4 for 17 since making his debut June 20, was injured in Sunday’s 8-2 win over the Angels.

Phillies: RHP Jerad Eickhoff (right lat strain) will throw live batting practice Wednesday. He has been out all season. … Reliever Edubray Ramos (right shoulder impingement), who has been on the DL since June 25, threw a bullpen Tuesday and could be activated on Friday.

UP NEXT

Baltimore rookie RHP Yefry Ramirez (0-1, 2.89) will make his second start and third appearance with the Orioles against Phillies RHP Aaron Nola (10-2, 2.48) on Wednesday afternoon.




The adjustments have come both ways and Pittsburgh Pirates rookie outfielder Austin Meadows is doing better at them than opposing pitchers.

Through the first three games of a series against Arizona that concludes Sunday at PNC Park, Meadows has gotten the better of Diamondbacks pitching. Despite going 0-for-4 Saturday, he’s 5-for-13 in the series with a run, a walk and a stolen base.

In fact, Meadows told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that pitchers are only adjusting to him “a little bit” after his early success.

“They’re throwing a little more of their off-speed early in the count for strikes,” he said. “For me, it’s just going out there and having the same mentality I did when I got here. Having that fastball-first mentality and adjusting to certain things and staying in my zone and not swinging at their pitches.”

Meadows, 23, a 2013 first-round draft pick who is healthy after injury setbacks, started on fire after his call-up from Triple-A Indianapolis on May 18, but going from .409 to .330 is probably just leveling off to something closer to what he can maintain.

He has made 25 starts — he batted leadoff Saturday in a 7-2 Pirates loss — divided among all three outfield spots. He has hits in 20 of the 25 starts, including 12 of the past 14 Cardinals Cheap Jerseys , with six doubles, two triples, five homers, 11 RBIs, 14 runs and five stolen bases.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle expects that opposing teams will use whatever resources they have to try to shift the advantage to the pitchers.

“We’ve seen a punch-back already,” said Hurdle, who doesn’t sound as if he expects opponents to fully solve Meadows any time soon.

“If you’re not impressed by Meadows’ at-bats, you need to go watch another sport right now,” he said.

Pittsburgh (36-40) has lost four straight and five of six. Arizona (43-33) has won three in a row, five of six, and will go for a four-game series sweep Sunday.

Arizona right-hander Clay Buchholz (1-1, 2.94 ERA) is scheduled to face Pirates right-hander Trevor Williams (6-4, 4.00).

Buchholz has three no-decisions in a row. His most recent start last Sunday was one of the Diamondbacks’ most frustrating losses.

He allowed one earned run in 5 2/3 innings and Arizona went into the ninth inning with a 3-1 lead before the New York Mets came back against closer Brad Boxberger to win 5-3.

“We got some very solid pitching, and Buccholz handed it off to the bullpen,” manager Torey Lovullo said.

Buchholz was subdued but “felt pretty good for the most part.”

Buchholz has been strong on the road with no wins to show for it — 0-1 with a 2.12 ERA and a .180 average against in three starts.

He is 0-1 with a 10.13 ERA in two career starts against the Pirates.

Williams is coming off a gem. He pitched seven one-hit, scoreless innings and struck out seven Monday in a 1-0 win over Milwaukee. It was his first win since May 15.

Against the Diamondbacks, Williams is 1-1 with a 3.21 ERA in three career starts. That includes a 13-8 road loss on June 12 when he gave up six runs (one earned) in the first inning and two in the third.
