LOS ANGELES —Roy Halladay was back in the Philadelphia Phillies rotation and
kept his team in the game long enough for them to rally late and keep their
winning streak alive. DeMarcus Ware Womens Jersey . Halladay
pitched five effective innings in his first start off the disabled list,
Hunter Pence got him off the hook with a go-ahead, two-out single in the eighth
inning, and the Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Tuesday night for
their fourth straight victory. “I feel good and I feel like I can contribute. If
I didnt, I wouldnt have tried to pitch tonight,” said Halladay, who had
successful rehab start Thursday for Clearwater and threw a bullpen session
Saturday. “Anybody who likes to compete wants to be out there, regardless if
youre 15 games down in the standings or 15 up.” The two-time Cy Young winner
threw 80 pitches, allowing two runs and five hits with six strikeouts and no
walks. He hadnt pitched for the Phillies since May 27 at St. Louis, when he
faced 11 batters over two innings and gave up a grand slam to Yadier Molina
during his 8-3 loss. He was diagnosed with a latissimus dorsi strain and missed
42 games. “The big thing for me today was just coming in and being consistent
with mechanics and trying to make pitches,” The 35-year-old right-hander said.
“As a pitcher, its the same as a hitter, getting to where your bodys in synch
consistently. I felt there were times tonight where it was, and times where I
needed to be a little better consistently doing that.” The first two batters
Halladay faced, Bobby Abreu and Mark Ellis, were called out on strikes by umpire
Wally Bell. Abreu tossed his bat away after a 3-2 pitch and headed to first
base, thinking he had walked. Ellis also had a few words for Bell before going
back to the dugout. But the Dodgers opened the second inning with four straight
hits and took a 2-1 lead with RBI singles by James Loney and Luis Cruz. “We
definitely had Halladay on the ropes, but we needed to get more out of that
inning than two runs,” said catcher A.J. Ellis, who lined into a double play
after Cruzs hit. “But he was out there battling and he was really sharp. Hes one
of the games best for a reason, and at times tonight he showed it.” The Phillies
loaded the bases in the eighth when Ronald Belisario (3-1) walked Chase Utley
with two outs, then hit Ryan Howard on the foot with a 1-2 pitch and plunked
Carlos Ruiz on a full count. Pence greeted Kenley Jansen with a sharp single to
centre, scoring Utley and pinch-runner John Mayberry Jr. and giving him a
team-high 55 RBIs. It was Jansens first appearance since he was on the mound
when San Diegos Everth Cabrera stole home for the tying run in the Dodgers 7-6
loss on Saturday night. Jansen has five blown saves in 21 opportunities.
Kyle Kendrick (3-8) got the victory, allowing two hits in 1 2-3 scoreless
innings. Jonathan Papelbon, the sixth Phillies pitcher, worked a perfect ninth
for his 21st save in 23 chances. Stephen Fife pitched six sharp innings in his
major league debut for the Dodgers. The bespectacled 25-year-old right-hander
yielded a run and four hits, walked three and struck out one while throwing 90
pitches. He was promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque when Chad Billingsley went on
the disabled list, retroactive to July 8, because of inflammation in his right
elbow. The Dodgers acquired Fife from Boston in a three-team trade that sent
switch-hitting outfielder Trayvon Robinson to Seattle at the non-waiver trade
deadline last year. He was 7-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 18 starts with Albuquerque.
“Today I watched some of his tape from some of his Albuquerque outings, and what
I saw is exactly what we got—a guy who competes and gives us a chance,”
A.J. Ellis said. “He did everything we asked of him, and more. He hung with
them, and any nerves he might have had he didnt show it. Its a shame we couldnt
get him that first career win tonight.” The Dodgers were clinging to a 2-1 lead
in the sixth when Howard drew a one-out walk, advanced on a wild pitch and tried
to score on a line-drive single by Pence. But Kemp made a one-hop throw to the
plate, and Ellis stretched to his left to get the ball and made a lunging tag on
Howard as he slid in head-first. Kemp got another assist in the eighth, erasing
Ruiz at third base for the third out after coming up throwing on Pences clutch
hit. But it wasnt enough to prevent the Dodgers fourth straight loss and 19th in
their last 25 games. “Were just trying to get through this forest and see the
light at the end,” A.J. Ellis said. “We have to keep grinding. You cant dwell on
the losses, just focus on the next day and have confidence and faith that the
next day is going to start a winning streak.” NOTES: The Phillies freed up a
roster spot for Halladay by optioning RHP Brian Sanches to Triple-A Lehigh
Valley. Sanches allowed seven runs, 12 hits and four homers over 6 1-3 innings
in his six relief appearances. In addition, all four of his inherited
baserunners scored. ... Halladay, who finished runner-up in last years NL Cy
Young voting to the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw, is four strikeouts away from 2,000
in his career. ... Wednesdays series finale matches 2008 AL Cy Young winner
Cliff Lee against reigning NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, who is 0-4 with a
4.95 ERA in seven regular-season starts against the Phillies. Lee is 1-6 with a
3.92 ERA in 15 starts this season, after going 17-8 last year. Troy Aikman Jersey . Zheng helped fuel
Chinese tennis after becoming the countrys first player to reach a Grand Slam
semifinal in 2008 at Wimbledon, when she made history two years later by winning
the first ever doubles title. Although the 28-year-old player has not fully
recovered from wrist surgery, she won a see-saw struggle with a dangerously
hard-hitting Russian. Chuck Howley Jersey .C. —Admirers of Sarah
Burke gathered in Whistler, B. http://www.nflcowboysfansshop.com/dez-bryant-womens-jersey/
. But if “Bones” Jones had the chance to make his decision again, he would still
tell UFC President Dana White that he wouldnt accept a replacement light
heavyweight title defence on eight days notice. Jason Witten
Pink Jersey
. Paul had 25 points and 10 assists on Monday night in
a 97-85 win against the team that first tried to trade him to the Lakers—a
deal that was rejected by the league—before shipping the All-Star point guard
to the Clippers shortly after the lockout ended. DeMarcus Ware Jersey . The fine is reportedly
in the range of $250,000. “The Detroit Red Wings organization and the League
agree that the comments made by Mr. Devellano are neither appropriate, nor
authorized, nor permissible under the Leagues By-Laws,” NHL deputy commissioner
Bill Daly said in a statement.MIAMI—Chris Bosh recently peered down the
hallway that links the Miami Heat locker room and the teams home court. Though
nearly a year has passed, he still feels the pain. Its what the Heat call
“Championship Alley,” the photo-covered walls paying tribute to the NBA
championship run in 2006. For Bosh, it has a totally different meaning. Its the
place where the sting of losing the finals a year ago made him drop to his knees
in anguish, a moment captured for the world to see by television cameras he
didnt know were there. “I want it to be different this time,” Heat guard
Dwyane Wade said. “I want these guys to feel what they see every day in this
arena.” What they see—hundreds of photos of Miamis title celebrations—
represents what this team is chasing. What the Heat were a year ago, in the
first chapter of the “Big Three” era in Miami, was probably best described as
angry and spiteful. So now, with the start of another playoff run looming, Wade
and Bosh say the mental approach is going to be considerably different this time
around. The Heat open the post-season at home against the New York Knicks on
Saturday afternoon, claiming to be just as driven by a title as they were a year
ago, except this time they believe for more of the right reasons. “Last year we
played to shut everybody up and to prove people wrong instead of playing to win
a championship,” Wade said. “We should have played the way we had our whole
lives—to raise the trophy up and be called champions. We didnt have that
mindset. Thats different now.” Thats been a mantra of sorts for Miami throughout
this season, beginning around the start of training camp when LeBron James—
the player at the epicenter of Heat hate a year ago—said he was going to try
and get past the issues that he thinks held the club back last season. James
said he didnt play the game with joy, like he typically did as a kid growing up
in Akron, Ohio, and then for his first seven seasons in the NBA with the
Cleveland Cavaliers. This year, James said many times that he indeed was able to
successfully change his approach. It apparently rubbed off on everyone else in
the Heat locker room as well. “You just have to play the gaame,” Bosh said. Tony Romo Womens Jersey. “I think last year I
got too caught up in, This is it. We have to win. Were going to win. Sometimes
it doesnt happen like that. You just have to play the game.” Most players walked
down the hallway from the court to the locker room as the Dallas Mavericks were
celebrating the title showing very little emotion. A few said afterward they
didnt know how to react in those first few moments, saying the overriding
emotion was shock more than anything else. Bosh didnt wait to react. Backup
centre Erick Dampier helped him down the hall, as Bosh walked with a hand
covering his face. Hes not embarrassed by the moment. “I own it. I embrace it,”
Bosh said. “I dont like to lose. I didnt know there were cameras in the back and
everything. That was a private moment, honestly, for me. It wasnt for anybody.
But I was heartbroken. I had my heart torn from my chest and broken. That wasnt
a good feeling. I dont cringe from it. It reminds me of what can happen. That
was just that one moment, but we live it until this day, until we get over the
hump.” For all the attention James and Wade get, and rightly so, both say that
Bosh may be the key to Miami getting over that hump. Its not a deflection of
responsibility. Its a statement about numbers. When Bosh scored 20 points or
more this season, the Heat were 19-3. Since Bosh came to Miami, the Heat are
50-15 in two years—including last years playoffs—when he gets to 20. Its
not all about scoring, either. When he gets 10 rebounds, Miami is 39-10. “I
think I have that wild-card effect,” Bosh said. “I can lay in the weeds and we
can maybe win or maybe not. But if I have a good game, our records are winning
ones.” And theres no shortage of motivation for Bosh and the Heat in these
playoffs. Especially after what happened in last years playoffs. “Obviously,
losing burns,” Wade said. “And it hurts. But we wanted it last year just as much
as this year. That wound is still there. Going into the post-season you have to
relive kind of the moments from last year so you can feel that hurt a little
bit, and refocus. But we want it just as bad.” Their first chance to show that
comes on Saturday afternoon. ’ ’ ’
