OAKLAND, Calif. Patrick Marleau Jersey . — David Ortiz saved his only hit for a key moment for the Boston Red Sox. Ortiz connected for a leadoff home run in the 10th inning, and the Red Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 7-6 on Sunday to avoid a four-game series sweep. “I like to go out there and make things happen,” Ortiz said. “Weve had a good game, had a good series and then we go back to struggles. So hopefully everything changes at some point.” Ortiz was the only Boston starter without a hit until he lined a 1-2 pitch from Fernando Abad (2-3) over the wall in left-centre for his 17th homer. The Red Sox had to go extra innings after letting a 6-1 lead slip away. The As scored three runs in the eighth, and then homered twice in the ninth against Koji Uehara (3-1). The closer had converted 31 consecutive save opportunities dating to 2013. “Im getting hit on day games,” Uehara said through an interpreter. “I think its because Im old. Im not woken up.” The Red Sox pulled within 6 1/2 games of first-place Toronto in the AL East. New York and Baltimore are 1 1/2 games back. Ortizs homer came four days after the designated hitter belted a tying drive in the 10th inning of a 2-1 victory against Minnesota. “He does have the knack for the moment,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “More than anything he stays at rest or at peace mentally in those key spots and doesnt miss his pitch when he gets it.” Mike Napoli and David Ross also homered for Boston, which had been limited to two runs or fewer in eight consecutive games. Napoli scored another run as part of a double steal, and former As player Jonny Gomes added a two-run single. Oaklands late surge negated a strong outing by Boston starter Jon Lester. Lester, who had a career-high 15 strikeouts against the As earlier this season, allowed two earned runs and four hits over 7 2-3 innings. He struck out four and walked two. The veteran left-hander left after hitting Craig Gentry and walking Jed Lowrie with two outs in the eighth. Burke Badenhop came in and gave up three consecutive RBI singles to make it 6-4 before Andrew Miller got pinch-hitter Coco Crisp to line out to shortstop. Uehara, who had the longest successful save streak in the majors, blew a shot at extending his impressive run when he yielded home runs by Stephen Vogt and pinch-hitter John Jaso. “Thats a good example of the kind of grit and determination this team has,” said Oakland closer Sean Doolittle, who grounded out to second as a pinch hitter in the 10th. “Night after night it seems like its only a matter of time before our offence finds a way to come through and push some runs across.” Oakland catcher Derek Norris had to leave the game in the 10th after a frightening situation when he was hit in the back of the head by Gomes bat on a follow-through swing. Norris immediately dropped to the ground as home plate Greg Gibson quickly called for As trainers. Norris was eventually helped to his feet and walked to the dugout. He was taken to a hospital as precaution and was scheduled to undergo a CAT scan. Boston broke out of its week-long scoring slump and got to Tommy Milone after loading the bases with two outs in the first on two singles and a walk. Gomes two-run single put the Red Sox up 2-0. Ross, who homered off Milone earlier this season at Fenway Park, did it again on the first pitch in the second. NOTES: Oaklands last four-game sweep of Boston came in 1971 at Fenway Park. … Oakland 1B Kyle Blanks left after getting thrown out at home in the second. Blanks has been nursing a calf strain and aggravated it while sliding into home plate. … With two days off in the next week, the As plan to skip Sonny Grays turn in the rotation. Gray, who has yet to pitch a full season in the majors, has already logged a team-leading 99 innings. … Boston OF Shane Victorino (right hamstring strain) took batting practice with Triple-A Pawtucket but did not play. .. Red Sox RHP John Lackey (8-4) pitches the series opener against Seattle on Monday. … It was Oaklands eighth sellout of the season. Cheap NHL Jerseys . Speaking on TSN Radio 1050s TSN Drive with Dave Naylor on Monday, Colangelo said he had no intention of tanking the shortened 2011-12 season, but definitely wanted a high pick in the draft. “I wish that word wasnt used for headline reasons,” said Colangelo, “but the story behind it was: how can we fix the system? How can we tweak the system to make it less likely that teams are rewarded for losing records? “I do believe that if youre as transparent as we were at the time - with our season seat holders, our fans, the market place and the media - everybody knew what the plan was and what we were going through. Darryl Sittler Jersey .J. — Rampage Jackson scowled, howled, then bellowed to the crowd: “Im back! Im back!” With rebuilt knees and a new promotion, Jackson might have one more act left in MMA.The ratio in the CFL is a truly unique - and sometimes headache-inducing - model of proportional roster shuffling, and sometimes, especially in times of widespread injury, it hamstrings head coaches and forces them to juggle their lineups. With Canadian offensive linemen Steve Morley, Marc Parenteau, and Paul Swiston, along with American imports Shannon Boatman and Andre Douglas all out due to injury, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will start three imports on the offensive front against the B.C. Lions. “Its a little bit peculiar, but you know what, its not completely unheard of,” said seven-year veteran tackle Glenn January, whose return from a one-week ankle ailment is a welcome reprieve. “I know that the year before I got to Toronto, they did it. I know that Edmonton has done it this year. Theyve played American guards in Montreal. So if the injury bug starts to bite you, youre going to have to make some moves.” Because of that bug, the club is now forced to start three Canadian receivers - namely Akeem Foster, Rory Kohlert, and Jade Etienne - or line up Canadians Carl Vony at running back or Michel-Pierre Pontbriand at fullback. On the depth chart, Terrence Edwards is listed as a backup behind Etienne. “Right now, were pretty devastated by injury. Weve got a lot of guys who are a couple games away from coming back,” added January. “Hopefully, we can get Steve Morley back on the field here soon, but you kind of have to play the hand youre dealt and right now, thats what were looking at. Youve got a couple of good, young, talented Americans that have come in here and picked up the game fairly quickly. So itll be interesting to see if were able to go out there and establish the line of scrimmage like we hope we are going to be able to.” The team signed American offensive tackles Dan Knapp and Jarvis Jones and started them last week following just two days of practice. This week, Jones moves from right to left tackle, while Knapp moves inside to right guard. “Weve struggled on the offensive line this year,” said head coach Tim Burke. “Were continually trying to upgrade and I think that upgrades us both in the run game and in the pass protection part of the game. We were happy with the way the two new guys played last week, and then obviously Glenn (January) is a stalwart journeyman kind of guy.” On the defensive side of the ball, the team has elected to start veteran corner Jovon Johnson at safety for the struggling Cauchy Muamba again, forcing the team to juggle the lineup to appease the league-mandated ratio. Garret Sparks Jersey. “By putting Jovon Johnson at safety, a position that was played by a Canadian (Cauchy Muamba) before, you need to put one more Canadian somewhere else,” said Pierre-Luc Labbe, who makes his first official start of the season this week. “So Im the lucky one who goes to middle linebacker and theyll put Henoc (Muamba) at (weak side linebacker).” “I played a lot last week,” added the Quebec-native Labbe. “It was already planned like this, to put me in on first down most of the time, and on second and short, too. Ive been lucky enough to get a lot of playing time last week.” Labbe may prove to be a welcome veteran presence on one of the youngest units in the league. “Im the oldest player on defence here at 29,” added Labbe. “That is what coach (Casey) Creehan has been focusing on this week; we had a lot of positives in the last game, even if we lost in overtime, I think the first four quarters were solid. We had chances to just finish and close that game and get away with a win, and we just didnt capitalize. So I think we lost that game more than they won it.” Notes: Linebacker/defensive back Johnny Sears, who has been on the nine-game injured list with a foot ailment “should be ready next week” according to Burke. Sears lined up at strong side linebacker and halfback in practice this week… Slotback Cory Watson has been kept out of the lineup with a hamstring injury. Burke says “I think hell be ready next week as well.”… Running back Chad Simpson (foot) saw doctors again this week, but his participation in practice has been wildly inconsistent… O-lineman Andre Douglas, who remains on the nine-game with a leg injury, practiced fully this week. There is no timetable for his return… O-linemen Marc Parenteau (neck) and Shannon Boatman (multiple injuries) have been placed on the nine-game injured list… Canadian O-lineman Tyson Pencer, who made his first two professional starts in the back-to-backs against Edmonton, will be a likely scratch this week. Burke said he is “still not ready for prime time.” When asked if the 2012 third-overall draft pick should be ready by now, Burke simply answered, “yes.” Cheap France Jerseys Authentic Cheap Zambia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Wales Soccer Jerseys Cheap Venezuela Soccer Jerseys Cheap Uruguay Soccer Jerseys Cheap Ukraine Soccer Jerseys Cheap Turkey Soccer Jerseys Cheap Switzerland Soccer Jerseys Cheap Sweden Soccer Jerseys Cheap Spain Soccer Jerseys Cheap South Africa Soccer Jerseys Cheap Slovakia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Singapore Soccer Jerseys Cheap Senegal Soccer Jerseys Cheap Saudi Arabia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Russia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Romania Soccer Jerseys Cheap Portugal Soccer Jerseys Cheap Poland Soccer Jerseys Cheap Peru Soccer Jerseys ' ' '
