CHICAGO —The St. A.J. Green Womens Jersey . Louis Cardinals
were headed for another heartbreaking loss when Carlos Beltran turned it around
with one big swing. When Beltran got back to the dugout, starting pitcher
Adam Wainwright showed his appreciation for the timely play. “I kissed him right
on the cheek. Im not afraid to tell the whole world, either,” Wainwright said.
“I wanted to kiss him on the mouth. He saved me, he saved the team today.”
Beltran hit a tying solo homer in the ninth and Jon Jay doubled in the winning
run an inning later as the Cardinals bolstered their bid for another playoff
appearance with a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. St. Louis
increased its lead for the second NL wild card to 2 1/2 games over Milwaukee,
which lost 10-4 at Washington. The Los Angeles Dodgers are three back following
a 6-0 loss at Cincinnati. The defending World Series champion Cardinals have 10
games left in the regular season. They bounced back from an agonizing 11-inning
loss at Wrigley Field the previous day. After Matt Carpenter and Brian Anderson
drew two-out walks from Jaye Chapman (0-1), Jay doubled down the right-field
line. “If wed have lost that game, I dont think Id sleep at all tonight,”
Wainwright said. Mitchell Boggs (4-1) got the last out of the ninth. Jason Motte
struck out the side in the 10th for his 39th save. Beltran connected for his
30th homer, a one-out shot off Carlos Marmol that wrapped just inside the
right-field foul pole. Marmol had been successful on 19 straight save chances
dating to May 2. “Its no secret youre going to get a fastball and youre gonna
get a slider,” Beltran said. “We were trying to put ourselves in a position to
at least score a run. I was able to get a pitch to hit. In my mind, Im just
trying to put myself on the basepaths.” Before Beltrans drive, it appeared the
Cardinals were going to blow another game against their arch rival in the most
crucial time of the season. St. Louis lost in dramatic fashion on Friday.
Fernando Salas gave up a two-out, two-strike, two-run homer to Darwin Barney in
the ninth to send the game to extra innings, and the Cubs won 5-4 in 11 on
David DeJesus RBI single. Both Boggs and Motte were unavailable. “It was tough
yesterday not putting (Boggs and Motte) in there, but were gonna have to do
that,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “There are gonna be days where
someone else has to step up.” On Mathenys 42nd birthday, St. Louis improved to
10-10 in September after going 18-8 in the final month last season, when the
Cardinals squeezed into the playoffs on the final day of the season. DeJesus
solo homer started a three-run rally in the sixth as Chicago nearly came from
behind to knock off the Cardinals for a second straight day. Travis Wood again
failed to win at Wrigley, though he held St. Louis to two earned runs over five
innings, striking out seven. He entered with an 0-5 record and a 6.08 ERA over
his last seven home starts, but finished with a no-decision when the Cubs
rallied. “Every win counts. Were battling as hard as we can,” Wood said. “We
played pretty good today. We ended up taking a lead, just couldnt hold them off.
Thats a good team over there.” All-Star catcher Yadier Molina of the Cardinals
left in the ninth with lower back spasms. He exited after trying to get away
from a pitch from Marmol that nearly hit him. “It was more low back. I dont know
what it was, it just tightened up on him,” Matheny said. “Trying to react at max
speed doesnt help, either. Trainers were encouraged, thought its something well
be able to take a look at in the morning and adjust from there.” St. Louis
stranded 13 batters and missed several chances to take command of the game.
James Russell struck out pinch-hitter Shane Robinson with runners on the corners
to end the eighth, while Marmol got Tony Cruz to fly out with the go-ahead run
on third to end the ninth. Cruz pinch-hit for Molina. Wainwright is winless over
his last five starts. He allowed four runs and six hits over seven innings. He
hasnt lost in his last eight starts at Wrigley Field. The Cubs need to win four
of their last 10 games to avoid the third 100-loss season in franchise history
and first since 1966. “We came back. I just loved the way the guys battled the
whole game,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “Win or lose, the guys are battling
and not making it easy on anybody.” NOTES: Cardinals RHP Jake Westbrook
(strained right oblique) was shut down just a few pitches into his bullpen
session. He will be re-evaluated Sunday. RHP Lance Lynn will start in Westbrooks
place Monday at Houston. ... Cardinals RHP Chris Carpenter felt “good sore” a
day after his season debut Friday, according to Matheny. He is scheduled to
pitch Wednesday in Houston. ... Barneys errorless streak at second base reached
an NL-record 137 games, four short of the major league record set by Detroits
Placido Polanco in 2007. Geno Atkins Jersey . Baltimore was ahead 4-0
heading into the eighth, but its bullpen gave up the lead. Kevin Youkilis hit a
three-run homer off Koji Uehara (1-0) to tie the game. However, the Orioles
offense rallied against Daniel Bard (0-3) in the home half to send the club to
its second straight win. Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey . “I thought I did
enough to win,” Edgar said of his fight last February with Henderson in Japan.
“But I dont really want to dwell on it now that were here. “I was fortunate that
it was close enough to get me a rematch. This is like a chance for redemption
for me, righting a wrong. http://www.shopthebengals.com/a-j-green-jerseys
. With second-place Manchester United beating Birmingham 1-0, Eduardo and
Emmanuel Adebayor scored to keep Arsenal two points ahead of the defending
champions. Chelsea stayed third with a 2-1 win at Fulham, while Everton,
Portsmouth and Aston Villa also won on New Years Day. Jermaine Gresham Jersey .5-million, one-year
contract on Tuesday. Indians general manager Mark Shapiro said that Pavano, who
turns 33 on Thursday, is guaranteed a spot in Clevelands rotation as long as hes
healthy following spring training. Andy Dalton Jersey . Entering the second run
more than seven-tenths of a second off the pace, Schild blazed through the 59
gates to clock a winning time of one minute 39.44 seconds, putting her one
victory shy of the 34 slalom wins held by Swiss great Vreni Schneider.BALTIMORE
—The regular NFL officials returned to action, and the ending of their first
game was eerily familiar to the one that hastened the exit of the replacement
refs. This time, however, there were no replays or arguments at the end. Just
another win by the Baltimore Ravens over the Cleveland Browns, 23-16 on Thursday
night. If not for two failed desperation passes into the end zone in the closing
seconds, the returning officials might have had to work overtime on their first
night back. Cleveland began its final drive with 1:05 to go on its own 10.
Rookie Brandon Weeden moved the Browns to the Baltimore 33 before a fourth-down
pass into the end zone fell incomplete. But a personal foul penalty on Baltimore
linebacker Paul Kruger gave winless Cleveland one more chance. That pass sailed
out of the end zone. “Too much juice,” Weeden lamented. The final sequence was
not unlike the controversial ending of Monday nights Green Bay-Seattle game,
when a Hail Mary pass was ruled a touchdown. That play, and the furor it
created, hastened negotiations that brought the regular officials back. The
lockout ended late Wednesday, bringing about the exit of the unpopular
replacement refs. And so, finally, the tenured officials were in place for Week
4. “I felt so bad for that Green Bay situation,” Ravens running back Ray Rice
said. “Replacement refs, their families, I cant knock them. The scrutiny they
were under. That kind of scrutiny is bad. Its hard going from like Pop Warner to
the big leagues.” As they walked onto the field hours before this game, the
officiating crew received a round of applause and shouts of encouragement from
fans in the lower sections. Head linesman Wayne Mackie and line judge Jeff
Seeman both tipped their caps to acknowledge the support. And then, before the
pregame coin flip, referee Gene Steratore greeted the players at midfield by
saying, “Good evening, men, its good to be back.” Many in the sellout crowd of
70,944 stood and roared their approval. Afterward, Ravens coach John Harbaugh
echoed the sentiment of the crowd. “Welcome back to the officials. Good to have
them back,” he said. “These guys are really good. The communication was good. I
didnt agree with every call, but they were excellent.” Joe Flacco went 28 for 46
for 356 yards, threw one touchdown and ran for another. Yet, it wasnt until
Cary Williams returned an interception 63 yards for a score at the end of the
third quarter that the Ravens (3-1) put some distance between themselves and the
young Browns (0—4). A.J. Green Elite Jersey. “I thought our
secondary made plays that had to be made, especially at the end there when they
were knocking at the door,” Harbaugh said. “Cary Wiliams was the difference in
the game with the interception return for a touchdown.” The fans waited until
the third quarter to boo the officials. On a 13-yard completion from Weeden to
Benjamin Watson, Ravens safety Bernard Pollard was called for a helmet-to-helmet
hit. The crowd jeered the call, but replays appeared to confirm the penalty. The
15-yard markoff set up a 51-yard field goal by Phil Dawson that got the Browns
within 16-10. Late in the quarter, Williams ambushed an out pattern by
Travis Benjamin and took the interception down the right sideline for a 13-point
lead. It was the 13th consecutive home win for the Ravens, the longest current
run in the NFL, and their streak of 10 straight wins in the division is also the
most of any team. Baltimore has also won nine straight over Cleveland.
Anquan Boldin caught nine passes for 131 yards, and Torrey Smith had six catches
for 97 yards and a score. Weeden went 25 for 52 for 320 yards, but rookie
running back Trent Richardson gained only 47 yards rushing on 14 carries. Dawson
kicked field goals of 51, 50 and 52 yards, the last one with 4:33 left to make
it 23-16. Its the third time since 1998 that the Browns have lost their first
four games. They finished 2-14 in 1999 and 5-11 in 2009. Coach Pat Shurmur
applauded the performance of the refs, and acknowledged he deserved an
unsportsmanlike conduct call in the fourth quarter. “I cant do that,” he said.
“Its an emotional game, and I got to make sure I keep my emotions in check.”
Cleveland played the majority of the game without wide receiver and punt
returner Joshua Cribbs, who sustained a concussion while returning a kick late
in the first quarter. Cribbs had his helmet knocked off and lost the handle on
the ball after absorbing a hard hit by Dannell Ellerbe. It was legal tackle,
shoulder to helmet, and the officials did not call a penalty. Cribbs lay prone
for several minutes before finally rising to his feet and walking off the field.
Flacco went 16 for 26 for 186 yards and a touchdown to stake the Ravens to 9-7
halftime lead. NOTES: Former Browns and Ravens RB Jamal Lewis was inducted in
Baltimores Ring of Honor. ... Cleveland safeties Tashaun Gipson and Usama Young
both sustained knee injuries. ... Dawson is the seventh player in NFL history to
kick three FGs of at least 50 yards in a game. ’ ’ ’
