BOSTON —Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire can put up with Samuel Dedunos
wildness as long as the starter keeps limiting opponents to just two hits. J.J.
Watt Jersey
. The right-hander who spent five years in the minors
before reaching the majors allowed two hits for his second straight strong
outing and the Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Thursday night. Deduno (3-0)
walked four and struck out one in six innings before two relievers combined for
three perfect innings. In his previous start, he allowed one run on two hits and
five walks in a 12-5 win over Cleveland. “I know his ball-strike ratio wasnt the
greatest, but sometimes that works,” Gardenhire said. “He was able to make
pitches when he had to and thats all you really care about.” Deduno had an
outstanding curveball and slider. He also has a fastball that moves so much that
his catchers sometimes wonder where it will end up. And it led to him throwing
only 50 of his 101 pitches for strikes. “Hes got a very live fastball,” said
shortstop Brian Dozier, who played with Deduno at Triple-A Rochester this
season. “It cuts. It sinks. It rides. I dont know how he grips it, but he just
kind of shoots for the middle of the plate.” Deduno, making his sixth major
league start, has given up just two earned runs and 10 hits in 19 1-3 innings
“My curveball and my slider are pretty good, but my fastball is still moving
like crazy,” said Deduno, who reached the majors in 2010 and pitched six games
in relief for Colorado and San Diego. ””This is the most fun. This is the dream
to play in the big leagues and to stay not just for one month or two months.”
Adrian Gonzalez got both Boston hits, a single and double. Casey Fien retired
the side in order in the seventh and Glen Perkins pitched two perfect innings
for his sixth save in nine opportunities. Deduno overshadowed one of the best
performances of Jon Lesters rough season. Bostons lefty gave up three runs and
seven hits in eight innings with seven strikeouts and no walks. “I dont feel
like I have thrown the ball that well all year,” he said. Lester (5-9) had
allowed 25 runs in his previous four starts but improved in his last one,
allowing four runs in six innings. And he was much better on Thursday despite
dropping to 0-4 in his last six starts and 2-7 at Fenway Park this season. “Just
another one of those hard luck outings,” manager Bobby Valentine said. “He
pitched awfully well. 2-0 doesnt seem insurmountable but it was tonight.” The
Twins took a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a single by Dozier, an RBI double
by Denard Span and a run-scoring single by Ben Revere that extended his
career-best hitting streak to 16 games. They made it 3-0 in the sixth on
consecutive doubles by Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit. Dozier added his third
hit of the game and fifth homer of the season, a two-run shot in the ninth off
Alfredo Aceves. “That was pretty cool, man. It was one of the best feelings so
far since Ive been up here,” said Dozier, who was called up from Rochester on
May 7. “I got it pretty good. It was a 2-0 fastball up in the zone and I knew he
didnt want to walk me and so hes coming with the fastball. So I closed my eyes
and hit it.” The Twins won for the fifth time in seven games, while the Red Sox
dropped their second straight after winning four in a row. Deduno got 11 of his
18 outs on groundballs and stranded runners at second base in three innings.
With two outs in the first, he walked Dustin Pedroia and Gonzalez then retired
Cody Ross on a popup to shortstop. In the third, Gonzalez doubled with one out,
Ryan Lavarnway walked with two outs but Will Middlebrooks flied out to centre.
And with two outs in the sixth, Boston threatened with consecutive singles by
Gonzalez and Ross before Lavarnway lined out to left. Deduno raised both arms as
he walked off the mound. Notes: Span stretched his hitting streak to 11 games.
... Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a walk, his 18th muiltihit game in his last 34.
... Minnesota C Joe Mauer was given the night off to rest. He is hitting .352 in
his last 57 games. ... The Red Sox stranded runners in scoring position in three
of the first six innings. ... Minnesotas Brian Duensing (2-6) is scheduled to
pitch Friday nights second game of the four-game series against Felix Doubront
(10-5). ... Boston is 10-10 since the All-Star break. And 289-291 all-time

Only one goal counted, and it belonged to Wayne Rooney. The England striker
returned from a two-match suspension to head in the lone goal Tuesday and give
his team a 1-0 win over Ukraine and a spot in the European Championship
quarterfinals. The co-host Ukrainians, however, will leave the tournament
knowing that things could have been different. Needing a win to advance, the
Ukrainians thought they had equalized in the 62nd minute when Marko Devics
looping shot appeared to cross the line before it was hooked clear by England
defender John Terry. But the goal was not awarded by the referee or his extra
assistant, who was half-standing on the field only a few meters from the post.
“The goal that wasnt given really changed our plan because if it was given, I
think the whole game could have looked another way,” Ukraine captain Andriy
Shevchenko said through an interpreter. “We tried to give Ukraine a gift but we
werent able to do it.” Although a draw still would have eliminated them, the
equalizer would have given the team hope knowing that another goal would put
Ukraine through to the quarterfinals. “I was sad because the ball was in the
goal by one meter,” Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin said. The controversy will likely
add to the pressure on UEFA President Michel Platini to reverse his opposition
to goal-line technology. It was Rooney, however, who did manage to put his team
on the scoreboard. England captain Steven Gerrard whipped a cross into the
penalty area that glanced off two defenders before Ukraine goalkeeper Andriy
Pyatov let it slip through his hands as he crouched to collect the ball. Rooney
was primed at the far post and made it count. “I was always putting myself in
goalscoring opportunities,” Rooney said. “I couldve done better with a couple
more but I got the goal and its three points.” Rooney missed the first two Euro
2012 matches through suspension. He was sent off in the teams last qualifier in
October, and received a three-match suspension that was eventually reduced to
two. The goal was Rooneys first at a major tournament since scoring four at Euro
2004 as an 18-year-old rising star. He failed to find the net at both the 2006
and 2010 World Cups, while England failed to even qualify for Euro 2008. “There
was a lot of pressure on Wayne,” Gerrard said. “But he stood up and when we
needed him he was there.” With the victory, England won Group D and will next
face Italy in Kyiv on Sunday. France also advanced, despite losing to Sweden 2-0
in the other group match. Ukraine, however, will have to watch the rest of the
tournament as specttators, just like co-host Poland. Danieal Manning Womens Jersey. At the 2010
World Cup, England midfielder Frank Lampard was denied a goal that would have
levelled the match against Germany at 2-2. England ended up losing 4-1. “To be
successful you need a bit of luck,” Gerrard said. “Two years ago we were unlucky
with Frank Lampard and we had to pack our bags.” England is now unbeaten in five
matches under Roy Hodgson, who took over the team last month following Fabio
Capellos resignation in February. “Most people didnt think wed get out of the
group,” Hodgson said. “Weve won it on points instead of goal difference as well.
This was an away game with a capital A. “There were (50,000) people in and only
4,000 brave England fans. When we needed a bit of luck, when the ball may have
crossed the line, we got a bit of luck and went on to win the match.” Ukraine
had never won at the Donbass Arena on four previous occasions, and failed to
seize on its dominance when it mattered most. With their fans dominating the
crowd and on the bench at the start due to a left knee injury, the Ukrainians
were in control from the outset, far more confident on the ball and containing
England inside its own half. But early efforts were from distance, with Denys
Garmash and Yaroslav Rakitskiy striking over, while England midfielder Scott
Parker had to throw his body into the path of Devics low shot. They were getting
closer, though, and looking more even menacing going forward with Oleh Gusev
getting into the penalty area and sending in a shot that just creep over Joe
Harts goal. Before Rooney scored, England came close to testing Pyatov when
Ashley Young sent in a low cross that was easily dealt with in the 11th minute.
As Ukraine attacked the England goal, Rooney was quiet in the first half of his
first competitive match in more than a month until he sent a free header wide in
the 28th from Youngs cross. “It was a while since he played a competitive
match,” Hodgson said of Rooney. “Every day helps him and helps us. The fact that
he had 80 minutes today will give him confidence for the Italy game.”———
