ST. Adidas Bryan Trottier Jersey . PETERSBURG. Fla. -- Tampa Bay rookie Blake Snell is showing real promise but wasnt able to match Detroit ace Justin Verlander.Verlander allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings, and the Tigers won their fifth consecutive game by beating Snell and the Rays 3-2 on Saturday.Snell (1-3) gave up three runs, four hits, four walks and had four strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in his fifth start.Weve still yet to see really the best of Blake, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. Hes giving us a chance to win, theres no doubt.Two walks by Snell set up the Tigers first run, which came on a Jose Iglesias second-inning single. His wild pitch in the sixth moved Justin Upton from second to third before Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a sacrifice fly.Stuff that I need to work on, attack and be aggressive, Snell said. Its frustrating but Im definitely going to keep working on it.Verlander (8-6) struck out eight and walk one as he improved to 5-2 in eight starts at Tropicana Field. The right-hander was coming off a start Sunday in which he gave up eight runs in 4 2/3 innings of a 9-3 loss to Cleveland.We got beat by a really good pitcher that had really good stuff, Cash said. He attacked. He definitely made it tough.Justin Wilson pitched the eighth before Francisco Rodriguez got the final three out to get his 23rd save.The Tigers look to complete a four-game sweep Sunday against the reeling Rays, who lost for the 15th time in 17 games.After Ian Kinsler had a fifth-inning solo homer, Detroit took a 3-1 lead on Saltalamacchia sacrifice fly in the sixth.Logan Morrison pulled the Rays within 3-2 with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth.Iglesias put the Tigers ahead 1-0 on his RBI single in the second. Snell avoided further damage by getting a comeback from the hot-hitting Cameron Maybin with the bases loaded and two outs.I can see why they like him, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.Maybin, who entered on a seven-game hitting streak (14 for 28), was hitless in three at-bats.The Rays tied it at 1 in the fourth when Logan Forsythe singled, went to third on an errant pick-off throw by Verlander and scored on a sacrifice fly by Evan Longoria.Tampa Bays Steven Souza Jr. returned after missing 17 games due to a strained left hip and went 1 for 3. He was picked off first base by Verlander after a second-inning infield single.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: 1B Miguel Cabrera was rested.

Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. Adidas Anders Lee Jersey . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. http://www.islanderssportsshop.com/adidas+mike+bossy+islanders+jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. ENDICOTT, N.Y. -- Paul Goydos likes to say his golf game is two good rounds, then a mediocre one.Thats kind of all tournaments, not just here, he said before playing in the Dicks Sporting Goods Open.Last year, he did just that at En-Joie Golf Club, fading late while challenging for the lead and losing to Jeff Maggert by two shots.For one day at least, Goydos didnt follow that script. He shot a bogey-free 69 on Sunday to beat Wes Short Jr. (69) by two shots on a tricky day at En-Joie buffeted by gusting winds, finishing at 14-under 202 for his third career victory on the Champions Tour.My game is like a jack-in-the box, kind of keep spinning it and it pops up every once in a while, Goydos deadpanned afterward. There was no inkling that I was going to play well, other than the mythical law of averages. Things hadnt gone well, hadnt played well, my attitude was bad, so naturally I won.Qualifier Neal Lancaster (70) was alone in third at 11 under, while John Riegger (72) finished tied for fourth at 10 under with Joe Durant (68).Glen Day (69) and Kevin Sutherland (69) were another shot back in a tie for sixth.John Daly (73) was three shots behind to start and couldnt muster anything. He made bogey at the par-5 fifth hole and another at No. 9 to make the turn at 7 under, where he finished.First-round leader Scott Dunlap began the overcast day one shot off the lead and took himself out of contention with a disastrous second hole. Dunlap twice plunked shots into the greenside water hazard at the par 4, a 379-yard dogleg left, and carded a quintuple-bogey 9. He finished with a 75 to tie Daly.Goydos began play tied for the lead at 11 under with Riegger and was the steadiest of the leaders, carding eight pars and making birdie at the par-4 sixth hole while none of the others staged a threat in difficult conditions. A birdie at No. 10 dropped him to 13 under, three shots ahead of Riegger, Short and Lancaster.Riegger, who played the first two rounds without making bogey, had his streak end with a bogey on Sundays opening hole. Adidas Thomas Greiss Jersey. He had another at the par-3 fourth hole after having recovered with a pretty fairway chip for eagle at the par-5 No. 3, but another bogey at No. 10 dropped him to 10 under in a three-way tie for second.Rieggers strength over the first two rounds had been his play at the generous par-5s, having gone 7 under, and his streak of excellence on the holes continued on the back side. At the par-5 No. 12, he notched his second straight eagle at the hole to move within a shot of Goydos.Despite another bogey at No. 14, Riegger was still within striking distance at No. 16 and rallied once more. He drove the trees right at the short par 4 but rallied for birdie. Unfazed, Goydos, who played it safe on the hole by laying up short of the elevated green thats guarded by a handful of bunkers, matched Rieggers birdie to maintain his two-shot edge.I mean, John couldnt have hit a better putt, Goydos said. He hit that putt and Im like, `Wow! I was very happy with the way I kind of didnt rush it. I kind of stayed in my routine, kind of went through whatever I needed to do to hit a good putt.Both drove into the bunker on the right of the green at No. 17, their balls sitting side-by-side in the white sand, and only Goydos escaped. After Riegger hit out past the pin and two-putted for bogey, Goydos blasted to 4 feet and saved par.John hit a nice bunker shot. Him going first I think was an advantage for me, Goydos said.Riegger also made bogey at 18 to slip back further.Lancaster, in only his second tournament of the year, watched his chances fade when his tap-in putt for birdie at No. 16 lipped out while trailing by two shots.I guess just so close you kind of took it for granted, Lancaster said. I just think its nerves. I feel like I should have won the tournament.---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
