Winnipeg Goldeyes third baseman Amos Ramon came to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with the game on the line. Eric Hosmer Jersey . There is no situation he loves more. Wednesday night in front of 5,064 at Shaw Park, Ramon came up with two out and Tyler Graham on second base and blasted a double into the left-centerfield gap. Graham scored easily with the game-winning run and the Goldeyes had a 5-4 win over the visiting Sioux City Explorers. "You play the game to be in those situations," Ramon said after the game. "I just love that situation. I came up thinking just be relaxed and dont try to do too much. Everybody wants to be the hero, its kind of why you play. It was great to get a double, but I would have taken a single, anything to win that ball game." With the win, the Goldeyes won their second straight game against the Xs and wrapped up the three-game series. The final game goes Thursday night at Shaw Park. The Goldeyes improved to 39-36 on the season and remained six games back of Gary in the Wild Card hunt. In addition to Ramons heroics in the bottom of the ninth, it was a tremendous comeback by the Goldeyes. Sioux City scored three runs in the first and added a run in the fourth to build a 4-1 lead with starting pitcher Andy Noga dealing. But after the Goldeyes scored their first run in the third on an RBI sacrifice fly from Ray Sadler, the Fish continued to chip away. A double by Casey Haerther scored Sadler with Winnipegs second run in the sixth and then a single by Ramon scored Kevin Moesquit ion the seventh to make it 4-3. After going down 1-2-3 in the eighth, the Goldeyes rallied in the ninth. Fehlandt Lentini led off with a double and then, with two out, Graham singled home Lentini with the tying run. Graham went to second on the throw to the plate and that brought up Ramon who hit a long, high fly ball to the base of the wall to easily score Graham with the winning run. "We chipped away, slowly but surely and had some real good ABs in the ninth inning," said Goldeyes manager Rick Forney. "Amos has been seeing the ball real well since we returned from the Eastern road trip and over the last two weeks hes been swinging it as well as anyone on the team. It was a good win for us." Goldeyes reliever Brendan Lafferty (3-2, 3.63 ERA) got the win in relief of starter Matt Rusch, while Jimmer Kennedy (4-4, 3.06 ERA) gave up two runs on three hits in the ninth to suffer the loss. The Goldeyes and Explorers will play the final game of this three-game series on Thursday night at 7 p.m. Jason Jarvis (5-8, 3.40 ERA) will get the start for Sioux City while Matt Jackson (1-0, 5.19 ERA) will head to the mound for Winnipeg. Paulo Orlando Royals Jersey . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. Bo Jackson Royals Jersey . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago.http://www.mlbroyalsjerseyteamshop.com/authentic-alex-gordon-royals-jersey/ .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco.EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Your turn, Josh Freeman. Freeman was named the latest starting quarterback for the scuffling Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday. Freemans second week with the team will culminate on Monday night with him leading the offence against the New York Giants. "It really hasnt been that difficult. Any time you step into a situation where youre the new guy, theres always kind of an awkward getting-to-know-you phase," Freeman said. "But I think that goes back to the character of this organization just from top to bottom: a lot of quality people that are dedicated to winning first and foremost but also being quality human beings off the field. So its been a smooth adjustment." Coach Leslie Frazier also said that Christian Ponder will be the backup, not Matt Cassel, assuming Freeman makes it through the week without problems. "I like the things hes done in his career, along with what hes done since he arrived here with our football team, the time he put in, how well hes adapted to our system," Frazier said. "Hes done enough for us to say we want to give him this opportunity, which is something we had in mind when we acquired him. I think now is the time." Freeman will be the third starter in the last four games for the Vikings (1-4) and the 11th since Daunte Culpeppers season-ending knee injury in 2005. Freeman was cut by Tampa Bay on Oct. 3 and signed by Minnesota to a one-year contract five days later. "Were just going to make plays for whoevers in there and just make it as easy as possible," wide receiver Jerome Simpson said. Freeman started 59 games over four-plus seasons with the Buccaneers. The 25-year-old former first-round draft pick threw for 25 touchdowns and just six interceptions in 2010, his first full season as a starter, but has been up and down since. The Vikings were on the wrong end of one of his best games last year, a 36-17 victory at Minnesota when he passed for 262 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. "The underlying questions Ive been getting from a lot of people: Do I have a chip on my shoulder? Im sure I do," Freeman saiid. Salvador Perez Royals Jersey. . "But I think its more deeply rooted than just the past six months, 12 months." Frazier said he was impressed by Freemans first practice with the team. "From the moment he stepped in the building, he wanted to learn. And the way he handled himself in that practice, it changed my mindset about the possibilities," Frazier said. "We had a timeframe in mind originally but watching what he did from the day he arrived, that cemented it for me that sooner was a possibility." Frazier said he hasnt considered a scenario in which Ponder wouldnt still be on the roster for the rest of the season. Ponder said he wasnt sure about his future here. The trade deadline is Oct. 29. Hes under contract with the Vikings through at least 2014. "I have to figure out whats best for me and everything and for this team. I dont know if thats staying here and going somewhere else," Ponder said. Ponder started the first three games until he broke a rib. Cassel took over and led the Vikings to their only victory. Frazier said he preferred to keep the factors in his decision to put Ponder ahead of Cassel on the depth chart private. The coach also said he had full authority to make Freeman the starter. He acknowledged, though, that owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman were consulted. "When youre talking about the quarterback position, which affects your entire franchise, this is not a decision you make alone," Frazier said. Running back Adrian Peterson was missing from practice because of a personal matter. Frazier said he expected him back on Thursday. The coach declined to specify whether his absence was related to the situation in South Dakota regarding his 2-year-old son, who died last week by alleged abuse. A man is in custody in South Dakota. Safety Harrison Smith was also not present for the beginning of practice reporters were allowed to watch. With the game on Monday this week, the Vikings arent required to produce an injury report until Thursday. Smith suffered a turf toe injury to his left foot on Sunday. Frazier said hed provide an update on Thursday. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
