BALTIMORE —The Baltimore Ravens enjoyed a record-setting day at the expense of
the mistake-prone Oakland Raiders, who matched a dubious franchise mark that had
not been broached in over three decades. Brandon Marshall Youth Jersey . Joe Flacco
threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns, Jacoby Jones ran a kickoff back for
105 yards, and Baltimore set a club record for points in a 55-20 rout Sunday. It
was a rare blowout for the AFC North-leading Ravens, who won their previous five
games by a total of 23 points. Asked how such a thing could happen, coach John
Harbaugh replied, “I have no answer for that. Sometimes it just goes that way,
right? Our guys made some plays.” Quite a few, actually. The Ravens (7-2) scored
on six of their first seven possessions, special teams contributed two
touchdowns and Torrey Smith caught TD passes of 47 and 20 yards. Flacco and the
resurgent Baltimore offence made it look easy against the struggling Raiders
(3-6), who have yielded at least 40 points in two straight games for the first
time since 1962. The 55 points tied an Oakland record for points allowed, set in
1961 and matched in 1981. “We had too many mental errors on defence, gave up too
many big plays, we turned the ball over too many times and we didnt execute on
special teams,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. “When you do those things, it
generally results in something like that.” Baltimore led 27-10 at halftime. In
the third quarter, Smith scored twice and holder Sam Koch scored on a fake field
goal to make it 48-17. In the fourth quarter, Jones scored on a kickoff return
for the second time this season for a 55-20 lead. Baltimores previous record for
points in a game was 48, against Detroit in December 2009. “Obviously, we had
success,” said Flacco, who also ran for a score. “We ran the game plan and it
worked well. We stuck with it. We scored points early and continued to score
them.” Baltimore has 15 straight home wins, the longest current streak in the
NFL. Carson Palmer went 29 for 45 for 368 yards and two touchdowns for Oakland.
He was mercifully pulled in the fourth quarter. “Rough, rough, rough, rough
game,” Palmer said. “We didnt play any good in any facet of the game. Came in
and got outplayed by a good football team. Its very frustrating. We got to put
this one in our rear view mirror, because its going to be a tough one to get
past.” Playing without injured running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson,
the Raiders gained only 72 yards on the ground. Baltimore didnt punt until the
third quarter, and even that turned out well. Phillip Adams fumbled, the Ravens
recovered the ball and Flacco promptly threw a touchdown pass to Smith. Later in
the quarter, Koch ran 7 yards for a touchdown to cap a 74-yard drive. Burned for
251 yards on the ground last week by Tampa Bay rookie Doug Martin in a 42-32
defeat, Oakland shored up its run defence to stop Ray Rice. So Flacco went to
the air, repeatedly hitting tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson over the
middle in the first half before going long and outside to Smith in the third
quarter. Flacco went 21 for 33 and did not play in the fourth quarter. Rice ran
for 35 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He finished the afternoon with 5,034
yards rushing for his career, joining Jamal Lewis as the only players in Ravens
history to top 5,000. The Ravens won without defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and
cornerback Jimmy Smith. Ngata dressed but rested a shoulder injury, and Smith
could not get warmed up properly from a groin injury, according to Harbaugh. The
Raiders used a 55-yard pass from Palmer to Darrius Heyward-Bey to close to 20-10
with 1:39 left in the second quarter. It was the ninth straight game in which
Oakland scored in the final two minutes of the first half. But that gave Flacco
enough time to add another touchdown before the break. He went 5 for 6 for 73
yards before Rice ran for a 7-yard score. Oaklands first possession ended with
Palmer flat on his back. On a fourth and 1 from the Baltimore 44, Palmer took
the snap from centre and took one step backward before right guard Mike Brisiel
stepped on his right foot. The Ravens then moved 22 yards before Justin Tucker
kicked a field goal. After an Oakland punt, Flacco completed an 18-yard pass to
Pitta and connected with Dickson for 40 yards before scoring on a 1-yard run to
make it 10-0. Early in the second quarter, Raiders cornerback Michael Huff
intercepted a pass at the Baltimore 19 to set up a field goal by
Sebastian Janikowski. Flacco responded by covering 80 yards in six plays for a
17-3 lead. After completing a 47-yard pass to Jones and a 19-yarder to Dixon,
Flacco tossed a 5-yard touchdown pass to Pitta. The Raiders followed with their
first drive that included multiple first downs, but that ended poorly, too.
Paul Kruger picked off a short pass and took it to the Oakland 32, which led to
field goal. NOTES: Oakland LB Travis Goethel left in the first quarter with a
knee injury and did not return. Oakland CB Michael Huff was kicked in calf, and
S Matt Giordano and TE Brandon Myers sustained concussions. ... Baltimore is 7-1
against Oakland (including playoffs) and 5-0 at home. ... Jones is the first
Ravens player to have two KO returns for TDs. Tim Jennings Womens Jersey . – Sanna Nyassi,

Zack Greinke and Josh Hamilton; neither of whom will likely end up with the Blue
Jays.NEW YORK —Before Ruben Tejada went to bat with two outs in the bottom of
the ninth, David Wright pulled him aside for a brief talk. The Mets de-facto
team captain saw the young first-year shortstop had been having a rough game.
Tejada was 0 for 4 and made an ugly throwing error that went so far over
Ike Davis head, the first baseman barely moved to try catching it. And when the
Marlins walked Mike Baxter ahead of him two innings earlier, Tejada promptly
flied out to end the inning. Forget all that, Wright told him. Theres another
at-bat right here. Tejada singled home the winning run with two outs in the
ninth inning to give the New York Mets a 3-2 victory over Miami on Sunday, their
seventh straight against the Marlins. “We all kind of have a tendency to bring
our last at-bat up there with us,” Wright said. “It was nice to see Ruben come
through after they kind of picked on him earlier in the game.” Scott Hairston
led off the inning with a single, took second on a passed ball by Rob Brantly,
and was safe at third when pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin beat the throw on what
would have been an inning-ending double play. Instead, pinch-hitter Fred Lewis
was intentionally walked after Valdespin was allowed to take second. Tejada
lined a pitch from right-hander Ryan Webb (4-3) into shallow left field and
sprinted toward first with his finger in the air as the rest of the Mets poured
out of the dugout. “Its great, you know,” Tejada said. “Every at bat is like a
new day for me.” Wright hit a two-run homer in the first and Bobby Parnell (5-4)
pitched the top of the ninth for the win. Mets starter Chris Young had another
nice start at home, but he still hasnt won a game at Citi Field this season. On
Sunday, he allowed one earned run in six innings, but a throwing error by
catcher Kelly Shoppach allowed the tying run to score. Young struck out five and
walked two. The Mets are 3 1-2 games ahead of the Marlins out of last place in
the NL East. The Mets are 11-4 against the Marlins this season. Miami starter
Ricky Nolasco struck out five in seven innings, allowing five hits and two runs.
In Nolascos previous four starts, he was 3-0 with four earned runs and 20
strikeouts against one walk in 30 innings. Young has been a brighter spot than
hhis record would indicate. Brian Urlacher Jersey. In 11 of his 19
starts, hes allowed two or fewer earned runs, but is 4-3 with four no-decisions.
He has struck out more than two batters for every one hes walked and worked his
way into a spot as a reliable starter heading into next season. On Sunday, he
had one bad inning, and a sacrifice fly and an error were enough to tie the
game. Brantly and Gil Velazquez led off the fifth with singles and after they
were bunted over, Bryan Peterson hit a sacrifice fly that scored a run and moved
Velazquez to third. Gorkys Hernandez singled and stole second base, drawing a
throw from Shoppach that sailed into centre field, tying the game. “When David
hit that two-run homer, it set the tone and gave me some room for error,” Young
said. “It was nice to go out there and be aggressive.” At Citi Field this
season, Young has seven quality starts in which hes 0-4. Wright put the Mets
ahead in the first inning with a two-run homer to left-centre field against
Nolasco. Wright is 25 for 63 against the Marlins righty and it was his sixth
homer against him. “He guessed right there and didnt miss it,” Nolasco said.
“Thats a really good team. Those guys are tough outs.” NOTES: The Mets swept the
three-game series for their first three-game winning streak at home since
winning four in a row at Citi Field in June. ... Mets right-hander Jenrry Mejia
makes his second start of the season, facing Pittsburgh RHP Kyle McPherson. Both
pitchers are 0-1. ... Marlins RHP Nathan Eovaldi is set to face Atlanta on
Tuesday following an off day. ... Young led off the third inning with a long
double over the head of LF Petersen, but the top of the Mets order stranded him.
... Former Mets star Jose Reyes walked to start the third, stole second and went
to third on a passed ball. He was nearly picked off, but wound up being stranded
instead. ... A fan down the right field line wore a Santa Claus outfit. Santa
was seen leaping at a foul ball hit by Wright, but it was over the fans head.
... Mets reliever Frank Francisco has been unavailable due to elbow soreness. He
said after the game that he had no ligament damage and that he would try to come
back this season, but not at the risk of injuring himself. “Im not going to do
it, try to be Superman.” ’ ’ ’
