CHICAGO —As much as he hates Wrigley Field, Ozzie Guillen had to enjoy this
one. Peyton Manning Womens Jersey . Carlos Lee hit
a grand slam and the Miami Marlins beat the Cubs 9-5 on Tuesday night, giving
Guillen a win in his first game back managing in Chicago. Lees slam against
Travis Wood highlighted a five-run fifth and tied him with Jimmie Foxx and Ted
Williams for seventh on baseballs career list with 17. Omar Infante also homered
and had three hits, giving him 17 in 36 at-bats at Wrigley Field. Hanley Ramirez
also went deep in the game to back a strong start by Anibal Sanchez (5-6), and
the Marlins won their second straight after dropping four of five. “Little by
little, hopefully we start getting better,” Guillen said. “We got big hits.
Carlos has been taking over in RBI situations, doing a tremendous job going
after it and bringing those guys in. Were going to need more than that.”
Overall, though, he liked what he saw in his first game in Chicago since a messy
split with the White Sox at the end of last season. He led the South Siders to a
678-617 record that included a championship in 2005, their first since 1917, but
his tenure ended after his relationship with general manager Ken Williams
disintegrated. On Tuesday, he heard plenty of boos. Hardly a surprise, given he
was on the North Side and visiting the old ballpark that he has blasted as a
rat-infested dump. He said his wife was booing him. “I asked why and she said
she didnt want them to know she was my wife because shed be killed in the
stands,” Guillen said. “I respect them. Thats fine.” The Cubs simply couldnt
strike the big blow, stranding 10 runners, and took the loss after winning 12 of
16. It didnt help, either, that Wood (4-4) unraveled after winning his previous
four starts. The left-hander lasted just 4 2-3 innings, giving up eight hits and
eight runs. Miami scored three against him in the fourth, with Infantes two-run
drive to left capping that rally. They then chased him during a five-run fifth,
the big blow coming when Lee drove the first pitch to the left-field seats after
Sanchez, Jose Reyes and Emilio Bonifacio all singled to start the inning. The
slam was Lees first since July 25, 2011, with Houston. It was also his first
homer since the Marlins acquired him from the Astros on July 4. “You go out
there and try to hit home runs, youre going to fail 90 per cent of the time, and
I know it,” Lee said. Wood simply shrugged off that blow, saying, “Lee hit a
good pitch. It was down and in. He just dropped the barrel.” Wood left after
giving up a one-out double to Ramirez and retiring Austin Kearns on a fly.
Rafael Dolis came in and gave up back-to-back singles to Infante and John Buck
that made it 8-0. That was plenty for Sanchez, who allowed nine hits but just
two runs (one earned) over seven innings while striking out seven and walking
two. He gave up a solo homer to Jeff Baker in the fifth. The Cubs got another
run in the sixth when Geovany Soto doubled and came around after Ramirez let
Joe Mathers grounder to third go under his glove. Ramirez made up for it in the
seventh with a solo shot that made it 9-2, his second hit of the game. “We
played a great game,” Lee said. “Anibal pitched a great game. We got on base, we
got some key hits. Thats the name of the game.” Notes: When fans booed him
during a pitching change in the eighth, Guillen responded by pointing toward his
ring finger on his left hand—the one where he would wear his championship
ring. ... The Marlins Carlos Zambrano, who had his issues when he pitched for
the Cubs, said he got a warm welcome when he visited the city about two weeks
ago. Miami was visiting Milwaukee and he went to check on his Chicago house.
“People in the street were very appreciative of me. ... They say, Too bad that
you left. We miss you Z. I appreciate that. But there are some people that dont
like me. Theres nothing I can do about it.” Zambrano is not scheduled to start
in this series. ... Cubs manager Dale Sveum said he doesnt foresee an innings
limit on first-year starter Jeff Samardzija. The 27-year-old right-hander is 6-8
with a 4.71 ERA in 17 starts and is on pace for about 186. His career high in
the minors was 141 2-3 in 2007. His previous high in the majors was 88 innings
as a reliever in 2011. Samardzija starts for the Cubs on Wednesday against
Josh Johnson (5-6, 4.28). Champ Bailey Orange Jersey . While Cristiano
Ronaldo holds the keys to Portugals chances of taking a step closer to a first
major trophy, Spains charge toward an unprecedented third straight tournament
title is anchored in selfless teamwork. Brian Dawkins Broncos Jersey . You can watch
the game LIVE NOW on TSN and TSN Mobile TV. With a record of four wins and one
overtime loss, Canada leads host Finland by one point with each team having two
games remaining in the roundrobin portion of the competition. http://www.officialusbroncosshop.com/demaryius-thomas-jersey
. The Goldeyes dropped their second straight game against the Fargo-Moorhead
RedHawks 3-1 Saturday night before 6,434 fans at Shaw Park. Champ Bailey Broncos Jersey .C. —Injured
South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore is finished with college football.
Willis McGahee Black Jersey . A.J. Pierzynski
hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning and the Chicago White Sox held on to
beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3. CHICAGO —A rare triple-double was all well and
good for Joakim Noah. More important for him was this: the Bulls got another big
win. Noah had 13 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for the first triple-double
by a Bulls centre in roughly 35 years, and Chicago pounded the Milwaukee Bucks
110-91 on Wednesday night. “Obviously its a very humbling accomplishment,” Noah
said. “But were playing for more than that.” Carlos Boozer scored 20 points to
lead six Bulls players in double figures. Derrick Rose and Luol Deng each added
16, and Chicago simply ran away with this one. The Central Division leaders
built an 11-point halftime lead and broke it open in the third quarter, a nice
send-off for the All-Star break. Ronnie Brewer scored 15 points as all five
Bulls starters finished in double digits. Reserves Kyle Korver (11 points) and
Taj Gibson (nine points, 10 rebounds) provided a spark as Chicago handed
Milwaukee its sixth loss in seven games. Brandon Jennings scored 20 to lead the
Bucks, who never really had a chance in this one with Chicago shooting 54.4 per
cent from the field and dominating on the glass with a 49-29 rebounding edge.
“Im not going to lie,” Jennings said. “Im frustrated. I want to win. We all want
to win.” This, however, was far from a winning effort for them. Boozer hit 9 of
his 12 shots. Rose looked sharp again after saying the lower back pain that
caused him to miss five recent games is gone. He followed up a 23-point effort
against Atlanta on Monday with another strong showing. And then there was Noah.
“Hes just like a guard, where hes making great plays passing it to the corners,”
Rose said. How good was he? Consider this: Not since Artis Gilmore had 35
points, 15 rebounds and 11 blocks against Atlanta on Dec. 20, 1977, had a Bulls
centre delivered a triple-double. For that, Noah credited Rose with one huge
assist. “The only reason I was able to do it was because they were trying to
gget the ball out of Derricks hands,” Noah said. Peyton Manning Orange Jersey. With the Bucks
trapping Rose, Noah has plenty of opportunities and posted a career high in
assists. As he approached the triple-double in the third quarter, teammates kept
reminding him. “For a big man, hes great at making decisions coming down the
floor,” Deng said. “A lot of big men will get a little hesitant having the ball
in their hand, but hes comfortable with it.” Skiles said the Bucks were “kind of
in-between.” “We werent really bodying him up,” he said. “We werent jumping with
him either. And hes got the ability to handle the ball, pass the ball. He always
has. He hurt us tonight.” Noah fired up the crowd twice in the final minute of
the third quarter. First, he dunked on Beno Udrih for a three-point play. Then,
after two free throws by Jennings, he buried a corner jumper with about a second
left to make it 93-75, sending a roar through the arena. “Its unbelievable how
things change from the New Jersey game to this game,” Noah said. He had just six
rebounds without a point or assist in a loss to the Nets on Saturday. He played
better against Atlanta, grabbing 16 rebounds, and trumped that with what
probably was the best all-around performance of his career. “How many big men
can get a triple-double?” Milwaukees Ersan Ilyasova said. Notes: The Bulls have
won seven straight against Milwaukee. ... Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said veteran
G Richard Hamilton “is doing a lot more” and is “taking on contact now,” but his
return date remains up in the air. Hamilton has been limited to 11 games this
season because of thigh and groin problems. ... Backup PG C.J. Watson missed his
second straight game because of a mild concussion. ... Milwaukees
Stephen Jackson did not travel with the team because of a sore right hamstring,
and Drew Gooden missed his fourth straight game because of a sprained right
wrist. ’ ’ ’
