ST. Brandon Weeden Jersey . LOUIS —Mike Matheny
was feeling a bit giddy after the St. Louis Cardinals avoided an 0-5 homestand.
“Theres going to be some loud music playing in the clubhouse, and theres going
to be some crazy stuff on the plane, too,” Matheny said after Yadier Molinas RBI
single with two outs in the ninth gave St. Louis a 7-6 victory over the Chicago
Cubs Tuesday. “I cant tell you how proud I am about just the fight in this team.
“Thats going to pay off.” The Cubs shaded Molina to hit up the middle, and
second baseman Darwin Barney could only get his glove partially of a grounder to
the right side. Molina noticed the alignment. “Im just trying to put a ball in
play, hopefully find a hole,” Molina said. “I didnt try to hit the ball that
way, but I just wanted to stay back a little bit more. We really needed this
win.” Although Molina has had numerous big hits through the right side during
his career, the Cubs data called for a shift, and manager Dale Sveum said hed do
it again. “Its unfortunate,” Barney said. “One quarter of a step from maybe
saving a run and having another chance.” Alfonso Soriano, who hit 26 home runs
last year, tied it the score for the fourth time when he hit his first of the
season leading off the ninth against Jason Motte (2-1). Matt Carpenters second
homer in four games off James Russell had put the Cardinals up in the eighth.
Chicago scored three runs in the first, and there were later four ties before
the Cardinals won. Matt Holliday also homered on a three-hit day, Allen Craig
had three hits and two RBIs, and Tyler Greene stopped an 0-for-17 skid with
three hits, including a double and triple for St. Louis. “Today was a good day.
It was good for the team to get the win and end this little funk weve been in,”
Greene said. “You just keep working, keep pushing. Youve got to believe in it
and have confidence in it.” The NL Central leaders are 9-8 at home after
prevailing in a game that was tied at 3, 4, 5 and 6. The four-game losing
streak, which began with three defeats against Atlanta, was the franchises worst
since a seven-game slump June 10-17 last year against three teams. The
opposition scored first in all five games. “Well take them anyway we can get
them,” Matheny said. “The guys did a great job coming back. Just a great
atmosphere.” The Cardinals won without two of their biggest bats. Lance Berkman
was a late lineup scratch because it was a day game after a night game—plus
hes just a .206 career hitter against Maholm with one RBI. Carlos Beltran missed
his second straight game with knee soreness. Matheny wasnt sure whether Beltran
would be back Wednesday at San Francisco. Bryan LaHair hit his 10th homer, half
of them against the Cardinals, and Reed Johnson contributed his second go-ahead
pinch hit in three days with a single in the seventh. The rookie has reached
base safely in 32 consecutive games. “I think we have make an adjustment,” said
Molina, the Cardinals catcher. Holliday singled off Cubs closer Rafael Dolis
(2-3) to start the ninth and advanced on David Freeses one-out groundout.
Holliday scored without a play on Molinas hit. Chicago has lost 10 of 14 in St.
Louis dating to last June 3. The Cardinals capitalized on Kerry Woods wildness
to tie it in the seventh. Wood has 11 walks in 8 1-3 innings after issuing
passes to Rafael Furcal and Holliday, and Craig tied with a one-out single.
Craig had an RBI double in the first and has an extra-base hit in eight of his
12 games. Holliday put the Cardinals ahead with his seventh homer in the fifth,
a drive to left estimated at 445 feet. He also singled in the first and is 6 for
29 against Paul Maholm. Maholm didnt allow more than one run in each of his
previous four starts but gave up two in the first. Kyle Lohse trailed by a run
after his first seven pitches produced three hits, including an RBI single for
Starlin Castro. Soriano and Ian Stewart also drove in runs, and the Cubs had 11
swings and no misses while going up 3-0. Lohse retired 14 in a row with the help
of a double play before LaHairs homer. “It was kind of a perfect storm in that
first, me being aggressive but a little bit up, and theyre swinging,” Lohse
said. NOTES: Jaime Garcia (2-2, 4.09) opposes Madison Bumgarner (5-2, 3.80) as
the Cardinals begin a two-game series at San Francisco on Wednesday. ...
Matt Garza (2-1, 2.56) pitches for the Cubs on Wednesday at home against the
Phillies and Vance Worley (3-2, 3.07). ... Geovany Soto had his third two-hit
game of the month Tuesday. Hes 2 for 24 in the other 11 games. ... Since 1918,
no Cubs lefty has gone five straight starts with at least six innings and one or
fewer runs allowed. Maholm is among four Cubs lefties to do it five straight
starts, and the first since Ken Holtzman in 1969. ... Both games were sold out,
giving the Cardinals nine sellouts in 17 home games. Brandon Weeden Womens Jersey . Desriveaux is
entering his seventh season in the Canadian Football League. He played the past
six years with the Montreal Alouettes where he amassed 668 rushing yards and two
touchdowns. Josh Gordon Jersey . —Jack McInerney scored

Ritchie accomplished the feat in 1908. The win was a significant breakthrough

against Federer. Trent Richardson Jersey . The website
Capgeek.com reports that the deal is worth $21.25 million, with an average

YORK —Shea Weber escaped suspension after driving Henrik Zetterbergs head into
the glass in Game 1 of the Nashville-Detroit series. But in handing the
Predators captain the maximum US$2,500 fine, NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan
said it will affect how he handles “any incidents involving Shea Weber
throughout the remainder of the playoffs.” As time expired in Nashvilles victory
Wednesday night, the Predators defenceman responded to a hit from Zetterberg by
throwing a punch at his opponent before grabbing him by the head and driving him
into the end boards. “We felt this was a reckless and reactionary play on which
Weber threw a glancing punch and then shoved Zetterbergs head into the glass,”
said Shanahan. Weber said he talked with Shanahan and thought it was a
straightforward conversation to play to the edge but not over. He noted that
everyone gets “ramped up” during the playoffs. “Its a quick game and things
happen and its an emotional game,” said Weber. “Im just thankful hes not hurt,
and now we can move forward.” The Predators could ill afford to lose a player
who logs big minutes, especially with defenceman Hal Gill on the sidelines with
a lower-body injurry. Jim Brown Womens Jersey. “Sheas a big part of
our team,” said Predators coach Barry Trotz. “The league does a great job all
the time of the reviewing. Nothing gets by them anymore.” Zetterberg had to look
at tape to see what happened and said he thought it looked pretty bad. He said
his helmet was cracked and he was a little dizzy at first. Zetterberg did skate
Thursday with the Red Wings after passing a baseline test for possible
concussion. But the Red Wings forward didnt hide his feelings over the fine. “I
thought it was dirty,” Zetterberg said. “I think it was a direct (blow) to my
head and look what happened the last few years with all the head injuries. I
think that shouldnt belong in the game.” Many were surprised Webers actions
didnt merit a suspension, especially since the NHL has launched a crack down on
hits to the head in recent years. The incident was reminiscent of a turnbuckle
move in professional wrestling and caught the attention of World Wrestling
Entertainment. John Laurinaitis, the interim general manager of WWE Raw, tweeted
Thursday that Weber “might make good addition” to his roster and attached video
of the play. Game 2 in the series goes Friday night in Nashville. ’ ’ ’
