PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates already had a four-run lead over an ailing Justin Verlander when Travis Snider threw out a runner at the plate in the second for an inning-ending double play. Josh Hamilton Jersey . "It very well couldve been one of those things you talk about as a momentum-changer," manager Clint Hurdle said. Snider not only saved runs, he created them. Snider hit a pair of home runs and drove in four, Starling Marte added three RBIs and the Pirates coasted to an 11-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night. Gregory Polanco also threw out a runner at the plate, when Rajai Davis tried to score from second on Miguel Cabreras single in the eighth. Even with a five-run lead at the time, the game couldve become much closer. "They left as many men on base as we did," Hurdle said. "They were a swing of the bat from being right back in the game three times tonight." Verlander (10-11) gave up five runs on four hits and walked two before he was removed after pitching one inning with right shoulder soreness. "Just didnt feel great," Verlander said, "and disappointing on a night that the team really needed me." The loss, coupled with Kansas Citys 3-2 win over Oakland, dropped the Tigers a half-game behind the now first-place Royals in the AL Central Division. Pittsburgh loaded the bases against Verlander with one out in the first inning, and Marte cleared them with a triple down the left-field line. Snider drove Marte home when his grounder to first took an odd hop, and Victor Martinez couldnt glove it. Verlander threw 40 pitches and bunted in the second before he was removed. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI in Detroit on Tuesday. "Id be lying if I said I wasnt a little nervous," Verlander said. "Ive never been through this before." Verlander added there was no sharp pain in his shoulder, but manager Brad Ausmus removed him from the game to risk any further injury. Snider knocked in two more in the eighth inning off Phil Coke with his eighth homer, a two-run, opposite-field shot. Martin hit his sixth home run of the year in the sixth inning, and Ike Davis followed with his eighth. Snider was 3 for 5 and scored three runs. "Just another day," Snider said. "For me, its nice to contribute offensively, and defensively, and help this team win." Detroit scored three runs in the sixth to get within 8-4 and knock Pittsburgh starter Jeff Locke out of the game. Cabrera, Martinez and Torii Hunter started the inning with consecutive hits, and Cabrera scored on Hunters double. Alex Avila drove Martinez home with a single, and Hunter scored when Don Kelly hit into a fielders choice. Locke (4-3) was responsible for four runs, eight hits and four walks in five-plus innings.

Torres scored the first goal by an English team in the knockout phase of the Champions League this season when he met Cezar Azpilicuetas cutback in the ninth minute of their first leg match in the last 16. But Chelsea failed to make the most of its counterattacks and the Turkish champions equalized in the second half after gaining in confidence and cutting out their defensive mistakes. Al Oliver Rangers Jersey . James Harden wasnt worried and told his coach as much. "He was fired up but I told him: Its OK. Were going to be all right," Harden said. And they were. Houston scored 17 straight points after that timeout, led by 10 from Harden, to take the lead and roll to an easy 129-106 win. https://www.cheaprangersbaseball.com/502h-nomar-mazara-jersey-rangers.html . 1-9 on TSN. With more than 65 hours of exclusive live coverage, TSN delivers all the action beginning with Draw 1 on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 2 p.VANCOUVER - The Canadian womens national soccer team will have revenge and the future in mind when it hosts Japan in an international friendly at B.C. Place Stadium on Tuesday.Canada hopes for redemption after a 3-0 loss to the Japanese in Edmonton on the weekend, but also wants to use the game as preparation for the 2015 Womens World Cup that it will host next summer.Were improving as a nation, said midfielder Desire Scott of Winnipeg. Unfortunately, the (last) result didnt show as we wanted it to, but were making some strides in some areas that were wanting to. So weve got that to build on that coming up in this next game (Tuesday).Scott, who re-joined the team recently from Englands Knotts County, will start after subbing into Saturdays contest in the 85th minute. She will be among lineup changes that coach John Herdman makes as he continues a youth movement designed to mesh 2012 Olympic and previous World Cup veterans with newcomers and achieve a faster pace of play against the globes top teams.The most pressing needs in wake of Saturdays loss are more goal production and defensive discipline. The Canadians played well for much of the game against Japan, the reigning World Cup champion, at Commonwealth Stadium, but struggled from lapses at inopportune times.Defensively, I think were pretty strong — minus the goals, obviously, said Scott. But I think, now, its about finding that quality in the final (offensive) third (of the pitch.)She said the quick turnaround from the last match with the Japanese will provide fresh legs, hopefully, a fresh new mindset and a chance to grow.The fatigue factor will be there, said Scott. Were trying to play it out as if we were in the World Cup, getting used to that quickened game-time turnaround. So itll be good for us. Itll be a lesson to learn.Some young players, including defender Kadeisha Buchanan of Toronto, will play before heading back to their university teams. They will then re-join the national squads Vancouver-based residency program in January.Getting some minutes in is very key, just getting that experience in, just trying to grow throughout, said Buchanan, who has 24 senior international caps and will return to West Virginia after the game. These two games, (the goal) is getting better positioning on the ball. Its like, no shotss, no crosses and just trying to get that shutout that we want and, basically, just getting the win. Ruben Sierra Jersey. In another notable change from Saturdays contest, goalkeeper Stephanie Labbe of Edmonton will get the start after Erin McLeod, who backstopped Canada to a 2011 bronze medal, played in the first game against Japan.(Labbe) has just qualified for the Champions League (with her Swedish KIF Orebro team), said Herdman. Shes had a terrific season, set records there. So she deserves a chance to play and keep pushing Erin McLeod for that No. 1 spot.He stressed that McLeod is the No. 1 keeper but said its important for Labbe, 24, and veteran Karina LeBlanc of Maple Ridge, B.C., who is still with the national team but not on the roster for these two games against Japan, to keep pushing her.We have to give these keepers a chance to, one, keep showing what they can do but, two, get them ready for that (World Cup) tournament, said Herdman.Herdman is also anxious to give other young players a chance against Japan. He used all six of his substitutes in the first game and could use that many again in the second. This game serves as another opportunity for veterans who led Canada to a 2012 Olympic bronze to mentor newcomers as the senior national program continues its effort to repair a very big disconnect in the development of teenaged and players aged 20-25 in the past.Weve got a wonderful group of women who understand people, said Herdman. They work hard to make sure that young players get it, but also can enjoy it. And, I think thats what weve seen in the last year, where the younger players arent coming in petrified. They actually just feel part of a culture now, and I think they actually get what were trying to achieve, which is to make our country proud.Captain Christine Sinclair said the youth movement has given Canada more depth, which she hopes will translate into more scoring opportunities and tighter play at the back Tuesday.We want to get the ball in the back of the net against them, said Sinclair. We had a couple of chances, but not really golden opportunities.Note: Herdman said midfielder Diana Matheson, who scored the goal in Canadas 1-0 Olympic bronze-medal victory against France in 2012, suffered a knee injury Saturday, but hopes she wont be out long.
