MIAMI —First, the Miami Dolphins missed a potential game-winning field-goal
attempt in overtime, and then the New York Jets had a kick blocked with a chance
at a victory, and then . Ray Rice Pink Jersey ... Timeout! Kicker
Nick Folk received a reprieve that gave the Jets a wild win. After Folks blocked
field-goal attempt in OT was negated by a timeout, his retry was a successful
33-yarder with 6:04 left, and the Jets beat the Dolphins 23-20 on Sunday.
Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes for a 38-yard gain to set up the kick. Two
plays later, Folks attempt was blocked by Randy Starks charging up the middle,
but the officials whistled the play dead just as the ball was snapped because
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin had called timeout. “I thought it was the right
call,” Philbin said. “I was planning all along to call timeout right before he
kicked the ball. ... Typically were going to ice the kicker.” Folk said he had a
similar experience with Dallas in 2008, when a negated kick was blocked and he
made the retry. He said he and his Jets teammates heard the whistle when Philbin
called timeout, and his blockers eased up. “Id rather kick it than sit there and
not kick it,” Folk said. “I got another warmup kick.” Philbin managed a sheepish
grin as Folk lined up for his second attempt. The Jets kicker then made the
winner. “You never see that happen,” Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. “Its
a weird thing. Its one of those things where you say the odds were not in your
favour today. It just wasnt meant to be.” On the previous possession, the
Dolphins Dan Carpenter was wide left on a 48-yard field-goal attempt that would
have given them the victory. Carpenter also missed from 47 yards early in the
fourth quarter. “I let the team down,” Carpenter said. “We got breaks, no doubt
about it,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “Well take the win. Were not going to give
it back.” New York improved to 2-1, and the Dolphins dropped to 1-2. “Its a
tough game,” Miami linebacker Karlos Dansby said. “We were inches away from
2-1.” The Jets Darrelle Revis and Miamis Reggie Bush left the game with left
knee injuries. Revis is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Monday. New Jets
offensive co-ordinator Tony Sparano had trouble getting his unit moving much of
the day, but in the end he called the right play just enough to beat the team
that fired him as head coach last December. “I think hes happy to get the
victory for the team, not just himself,” Ryan said. Tim Tebow called a fake punt
and ran for 5 yards and a first down, but otherwise again contributed little to
the Jets offence. He still has yet to throw a pass this year, and a third-down
throw from Sanchez bounced off Tebows helmet and fell incomplete. “I was not
expecting it that quick, but I guess Ill learn,” Tebow said. “We got a win.
Thats all that matters.” Sanchez redeemed himself at the end of an erratic
afternoon. His 7-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley with 3:01 left to give the
Jets their first lead, 20-17. Tannehill then moved Miami 48 yards, including 19
yards on a third-down pass interference penalty against Revis replacement,
Kyle Wilson. Carpenters 41-yard field goal with 16 seconds left forced overtime.
Miami lost despite trailing for less than 3 minutes of the game. “Thats the
NFL,” Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake said. “Theres no script. It just
happens.” The Dolphins had the better ground game, outrushing the Jets 185-88
despite the loss of Bush. But the Jets LaRon Landry scored on an 18-yard
interception return. Sanchez twice missed open receivers for potential scores,
made several wild throws and had a handful of passes dropped. He finished 21 for
45 for 306 yards and two interceptions. Holmes made nine catches for 147 yards.
“It was a roller coaster, no doubt,” Sanchez said. “The defence and the other
players picked me up when I didnt have it. It was an ugly win.” Like Sanchez,
Tannehill had an up-and-down day. The rookie went 16 for 36 for 196 yards with
the one costly interception. “We expected to win,” Ryan said. “But my goodness,
it was tough.” Bush hurt his knee on a carry when the Dolphins were running out
the clock in the second quarter. He returned to the bench after halftime in
uniform and rode an exercise bike, but remained on the sideline. All-Pro
cornerback Revis departed in the third quarter with a non-contact injury. Some
Tebow trickery led to a field goal by New York. Exercising his option to call a
fake, he took a short snap from punt formation on fourth-and-3 at the Jets 30
and ran 5 yards for a first down. He was glad the call worked. “Makes it a lot
easier to go back to the sideline,” he said. That jump-started a 16-play drive
that ended with a 3-pointer. Tebow also drew a big cheer from the crowd when the
scoreboard “Kiss Cam” showed him next to teammate Clyde Gates on the sideline. A
teammate encouraged them to kiss, but they declined. Notes: Jets WR Stephen Hill
left the game with a right hamstring injury but afterward said he was fine. ...
The Dolphins were 10 for 19 converting third down. The Jets came into the game
last in the NFL in third-down defence. ... Former Dolphins Yeremiah Bell had
seven tackles. ... Miamis Brandon Fields averaged 58.8 yards on four punts. Torrey Smith Womens Jersey . Morgan Brian

leader Matt Kenseth, one of the longest-tenured drivers in the series, is

seven runs in the second inning, chasing Italian pitcher Michela Muistelli
Romani from the mound. Caitlin Lever started the rally with a home run. Canada
was so effective in the second that Lever had a chance to return to the plate in
the same inning, cashing in two more runs with a double.ATLANTA – Standing on
second base with one out in the 10th inning, Jason Heyward came up with a bold
idea to put pressure on Francisco Cordero and the Blue Jays. It turned out to be
a winning plan. Heyward stole third base and scored on catcher J.P. Arencibias
throwing error in the 10th inning as the Atlanta Braves beat Toronto 4-3 on
Friday night for their fifth straight victory. There was no sign from third base
coach Brian Snitker for Heyward to steal third. “It was all on my own,” Heyward
said. “I knew I had a great chance at taking a base and putting some pressure on
them and they ended up throwing it away.” Heyward opened the 10th with an
infield single off Francisco Cordero (1-4) and moved to second on pinch-hitter
Jack Wilsons sacrifice. With rookie Andrelton Simmons at the plate, Heyward took
off for third base. Arencibias throw skipped past third baseman Brett Lawrie and
into left field, allowing Heyward to score the winning run. When Heyward saw the
ball headed toward left field, he said his reaction was “Im home free.” “It was
huge,” he said. “It paid off. ... I knew it was over. We were rewarded. You take
a gamble right there, and thats why you did it.” Heyward already has 10 stolen
bases, one more than his 2011 total. He had two hits, including a run-scoring
double in the Braves two-run sixth. He said he is running more “to put pressure
on the defence.” “If I get the base, even if they dont throw it away, its still
a man on third with one out,” Heyward said. Cristhian Martinez (3-1) pitched a
scoreless inning for the Braves, who remained one game behind first-place
Washington in the NL East. Heyward scored on Chad Becks balk in the sixth to
give the Braves a 3-2 lead. “It wasnt a balk,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell
said tersely. Heyward was on third as Simmons tried to steal second. Beck turned
to throw to second, but no one was covering the bag. Beck then looked to third.
The Blue Jays tied the game in the eighth when Edwin Encarnacion doubled and
scored on Yunel Escobars groundout. Jose Bautista homered for Toronto. Both
teams stranded a runner at third in the ninth. Rajai Davis led off the inning
with an infield single off Craig Kimbrel and stole second as pinch-hitter
David Cooper struck out. Davis also sttole third before Kimbrel struck out
Lawrie and ended the inning on a fly to left by Colby Rasmus. Joe Flacco Jersey. . Atlantas Martin Prado
doubled to left field off Jason Frasor in the bottom of the ninth and moved to
third on Frasors wild pitch before Dan Uggla struck out to end the inning.
Toronto pitchers issued seven walks, including four to Uggla. Kyle Drabek gave
up three runs and six hits and walked four in five innings. Atlanta starter
Brandon Beachy also was wild. He gave up two runs and three hits and issued a
season-high five walks in five-plus innings. Drabek began the night third in the
American League with 41 walks and added two in the third inning to help the
Braves take a 1-0 lead. Beachy, who had two hits, singled and moved to third on
Michael Bourns double. Drabek loaded the bases by walking Brian McCann with two
outs before also walking Uggla to force in Beachy. “We walked in a run and the
winning run scores on an error,” Farrell said. Beachy couldnt retire a batter in
the sixth. Bautistas 16th homer, into the seats in left field, tied the score at
1. Beachy gave up a single to Encarnacion and a walk to Kelly Johnson, his final
batter. Encarnacion scored later in the inning on Arencibias grounder.
Freddie Freeman, who had been out since bruising his left index finger
Wednesday, struck out as a pinch-hitter in the sixth and remained in the game at
first base. The Braves retired John Smoltzs No. 29 in a pregame ceremony. Smoltz
also threw out the first pitch, which he later confirmed was a four-seam
fastball to McCann. During his speech, Smoltz mentioned Farrell, who was Bostons
pitching coach in 2009 when Smoltz pitched for the Red Sox during his final
season. NOTES: Blue Jays 1B coach Torey Lovullo was away from the team for
personal reasons. Coaching assistant Luis Rivera filled in. ... Attendance was
42,488. ... Braves 3B Chipper Jones (bruised left calf) had one hit and two
walks as he began an injury rehabilitation assignment with Class-A Rome. Atlanta
manager Fredi Gonzalez said Jones assignment could last three days. ...

Sunday, started at first base. ... Davis started in LF after missing one game
