OAKLAND, Calif. Andrew Luck Womens Jersey . —Ian Kinsler
hit a two-run double and Josh Hamilton also doubled in a run to back
Derek Holland, and the Texas Rangers rebounded from an embarrassing rout a night
earlier to beat the Oakland Athletics 6-3 on Tuesday. Yorvit Torrealba hit a
sacrifice fly, Adrian Beltre singled twice and Holland (5-4) pitched 5 1-3
innings—looking far stronger than in his last start. The left-hander struck
out two, walked two and allowed three runs on seven hits. That was a big
improvement after he was knocked out in the second inning when he allowed eight
earned runs in last Wednesdays 21-8 home loss to Seattle. The Rangers managed a
season-low three hits—their fewest since also getting three Aug. 25, 2011,
against Boston—in Mondays 12-1 defeat that kicked off a full week of games in
the Bay Area for the two-time reigning AL champions, who play a weekend
interleague series at San Francisco. This time, the Rangers had 11 hits and each
batter had at least one while five different players drove in runs. Elvis Andrus
hit an RBI single in the ninth as the final starter needing a hit.
Michael Young, who broke up Jarrod Parkers no-hit bid Monday with a leadoff
single in the eighth, hit an RBI triple in the fifth to chase As starter
Travis Blackley (0-1). Former slugging first baseman Sean Doolittle relieved and
made his major league debut. He struck out the first three batters he faced,
including Nelson Cruz on a 96 mph fastball to finish the fifth before an
impressive 1-2-3 sixth. Collin Cowgill hit a two-run homer in the fifth for his
first longball of the season, then Yoenis Cespedes connected in the sixth with a
solo shot but the As couldnt do more. Cowgills clout followed a close play at
first in which leadoff man Jemile Weeks was called out on a throw from second
that pulled first baseman Mike Napoli off the bag. As manager Bob Melvin came
out to argue with first base umpire Scott Barry. The Rangers pounded Blackley
for five runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings. He struck out five and walked
two. The Australian lefty, whose lone victory came way back on July 1, 2004, for
Seattle against Texas, made his second start and fifth appearance for the As
since being claimed off waivers from San Francisco on May 15. Kurt Suzuki hit a
pair of doubles leading off innings for the As, but struck out in the sixth with
two runners on with Oakland down two runs. Oaklands Brandon Inge went 1 for 3 a
night after hitting a three-run homer and driving in four runs. Hamilton was 0
for 4 in the series before his double in Texas three-run third. The slugger said
before the game he wont participate in the Home Run Derby at next months
All-Star festivities in Kansas City in an effort to stay healthy for the
Rangers. Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 12th save in 13 opportunities, and
10th in a row. As manager Bob Melvin made the tough call to sit Seth Smith after
the designated hitter produced four hits Monday. But Jonny Gomes often plays as
DH against lefty starters. “Thats what we signed him for,” Melvin said. Notes:
As reliever Andrew Carignan left the game in the eighth with an apparent right
arm injury after releasing the ball. ... Oakland SS Cliff Pennington had the
night off. ... Rangers manager Ron Washington is still listing Scott Feldman
(0-4) as his Saturday starter. Newly acquired Roy Oswalt, a three-time All-Star
signed to a minor league deal May 29, wont be rushed—even if he is eager to
join the Rangers and told the team he could have gone five innings instead of
two in his first minor league appearance Saturday at Triple-A Round Rock. “We
want Oswalt for the rest of the haul,” Washington said. “Thats a quality
pitcher. We want quality outings.” ... Rangers RHP Yu Darvishs impressions of
the Oakland Coliseum: “Its very historic. Theres a lot of history in this park.”

and Mardan Mamat of Singapore. Coby Fleener Jersey . The year the Jets
returned to the NHL will always have a special place in the memory bank. The
Jets closed out 2011 with a 3-2 home win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on
Saturday. Pat Angerer Jersey .A. spotlight. Not that
steering clear of top billing has hurt this magical run, two wins from
concluding in the franchises first Stanley Cup banner. BOSTON —Jair Jurrjens
showed the skill that made him an All-Star last season—before knee problems
and two months in the minors sidetracked his outstanding career. In his first
start since being called up, Atlantas winningest pitcher in 2011 allowed one run
on three hits and shut down the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox, leading the Braves
to a 4-1 win on Friday night. “Awesome,” Jurrjens said. “Thats the only word I
can come up with. Awesome. It felt great. Theres no words to describe how good I
felt.” Jurrjens, demoted to Triple-A Gwinnett on April 23 after going 0-2 with a
9.37 ERA in four starts, worked 7 2-3 innings and left after allowing an RBI
double by Daniel Nava that drove in Will Middlebrooks, who led off the eighth
with a double. Bostons only other hit was a clean single to left field by
Adrian Gonzalez in the first. “We just never got him deep in an inning,” Boston
manager Bobby Valentine said. “Everyone thought he looked good to hit and they
were anxious to do it and just didnt get the results.” Jurrjens (1-2) was called
up Friday and retired eight consecutive batters before Middlebrooks double,
which followed two innings in which Jurrjens threw a total of 14 pitches. He
also allowed runners on a walk and a hit batsman and struck out four.
Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save in 22 opportunities.
Andrelton Simmons drove in two runs for Atlanta and Jason Heyward had two
doubles and a single, improving to 7 for 11 in his last three games. The Braves
won their third straight game after losing seven of eight. Bostons five-game
winning streak ended one day after it completed a three-game sweep of the Miami
Marlins in which it scored 28 runs. The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 14
minutes by rain. Roger Clemens sat in the first row above the Green Monster in
left field. He received a subdued mixture of cheers and mostly boos when shown
on the centre-field scoreboard after the third inning with the words “Welcome
Back Roger Clemens” on the screen. The former Red Sox pitcher was acquitted
Monday on all six counts that he lied to Congress when he denied using
performance-enhancing drugs. Andrew Luck Jersey. The Braves got at least
one hit in each of the seven innings pitched by Jon Lester (4-5). “I dont think
theres anything wrong with my mechanics,” Lester said. “Im throwing the ball
fine, just not getting the results.” Jurrjens began last season 5-0 with a 1.66
ERA in six starts. By the All-Star break, he was 12-3 with a 1.87 ERA. But he
struggled in the second half, going 1-3 and making two trips to the disabled
list with a lingering problem in his right knee. His last appearance of the
season came Aug. 30 and the knee wasnt back at full strength when this season
began. Even at Triple-A Gwinnett, he had a 5.27 ERA in nine starts. “I was
lacking strength and going down there helped me get back to correcting my
delivery and getting strength in my leg again,” Jurrjens said. And he was much
better when he returned. “I guess its a little easier to pitch in the big
leagues than in Triple A,” Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez joked. “This is the
J.J. of last year, really, when he was rolling and made the All-Star team. So
its a nice lift.” Especially with Brandon Beachy, tied for the major-league lead
with a 2.00 ERA, having season-ending Tommy John surgery on Thursday. The Braves
took a 2-0 lead in the fourth. Freddie Freeman led off with a single, took third
on a double by Heyward and scored on a groundout by Matt Diaz. Heyward scored on
a double by Simmons. Atlanta made it 3-0 in the sixth when Heyward doubled, took
third on a fly out to right by Diaz and scored on a sacrifice fly to right by
Simmons. Freeman singled in Michael Bourn with the final run in the eighth.
NOTES: Valentine told struggling 3B Kevin Youkilis that he can expect less
playing time. Rookie 3B Middlebrooks started his second straight game Friday,
the first time since Youkilis came off the disabled list on May 22 that he hasnt
started two consecutive games. He is hitting .174 with no homers in June.
Middlebrooks is batting .319 with eight homers and 31 RBIs in 39 games. ... RHP
Randall Delgado (4-7) pitches for Atlanta on Saturday night against
Franklin Morales (0-1). ... Atlanta is 7-1 in its last eight road games. ’ ’ ’
