Weve got to be better on first and second down from wxy1123's blog

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. Cheap San Jose Sharks Jerseys . -- Joshua Houston and his teammates from the west side of Chicago arent ready to go home just yet. Pierce Jones and Trey Hondras homered, and Houston hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning as Chicagos Jackie Robinson West beat Cumberland, Rhode Island, 8-7 on Monday night in an elimination game at the Little League World Series. "It means a lot because its been 31 years," said Marquis Jackson, who had two hits and scored twice. "It shows anything is possible." The Jackie Robinson West team, representing the Great Lakes, is comprised of all African-American players and is making its first appearance in the World Series since 1983. It will play Pearland, Texas, on Tuesday night. "I dont think they really grasp whats going on," manager Darold Butler said. "It doesnt matter who theyre playing. This teams a special team." Jones led off the game with his fourth homer of the World Series, a solo shot to centre field, to get Chicago rolling, his teammates embracing him when he crossed home plate. Cumberland responded with two runs in the bottom of the first. CJ Davock singled to left and Addison Kopack walked. Tyler Provost followed with an RBI single to centre and Kopack scored when the cutoff throw sailed past Houston at third. Hondras hit a towering three-run homer to centre in the second to stake Chicago to a three-run lead and Houstons RBI single in the top of the third made it 6-2. Undaunted, Cumberland laced six straight hits to spark a five-run rally in the bottom of the third to take a 7-6 lead. Kopack had a run-scoring single, Provost laced a two-run single to left, and Trey Thibeault lined a shot down the left-field line that just cleared the fence for a two-run homer. Hondras tried to spark Chicago in the fourth, but he was thrown out at third trying to stretch his line drive that bounced off the left-centre field wall. Chicago protested, but the call was upheld, although a replay showed the fielder missed the tag. In the fifth, lefty-hitting Darion Radcliffs hard RBI single to left tied it for Cumberland before Houston drove a line drive down the left-field line to bring in pinch-runner Lawrence Noble from second base with the decisive run. It wasnt the way Cumberland manager Dave Belisle wanted his season to end. Not after his impassioned speech had sparked that scintillating 8-7 comeback win over Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday. "We showed our character again. It has to end sometime," Belisle said, fighting back tears at the end of his interview. "They gave me memories Ill take home for a lifetime. The whole region of New England is loving us, not for our wins but for our effort. They gave me the summer of my life." PEARLAND, TEXAS 11, LYNNWOOD, WASHINGTON 4 Layne Roblyer hit a three-run homer in the third inning, his second homer of the tournament, to lead Pearland in an elimination game. Pearland scored five runs on two wild pitches, a passed ball and a single in the sixth to seal the win. Pearland will play Chicago on Tuesday night. Lynnwood was eliminated. VENEZUELA 2, PUERTO RICO 1 Ronny Medina struck out nine for Venezuela. Medina came through in the elimination game, pitching five innings and allowing just two hits. "Ive been working hard every single day to achieve what Ive done up to now," Medina said. Puerto Ricos lone run came in the bottom of the first and was unearned as Yadiel Santana stole home on a passed ball. Venezuela gave Medina the support he needed early, scoring once in the first and second innings. Julio Rejon hit a solo homer in the first and Jorge Cabrera came home in the second after catcher Alvin Martinez overthrew third base on an attempt to throw out Cabrera stealing. MEXICO 6, AUSTRALIA 2 Erick Velas three-run home run was enough for Mexico. Trailing by two in the bottom of the fourth, Vela stepped to the plate with one out and runners at second and third. He hit the first pitch far over right-field wall to put Mexico ahead by two. Ruy Martinez hit a solo shot to centre in the fifth for the final run. Aldair Tellez pitched 5 2-3 innings and struck out 12 for the win. RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOA 5, CZECH REPUBLIC 3 Two errors by the Czech Republic and an RBI double by Daniel Vigoren in the fifth inning helped Rapid City earn a consolation game victory. Vigoren hit a line drive to the right-field gap to score Logan Miller and give Rapid City a 5-3 lead. The hit came after Colton Hartford got in a run-down between third and home, and Czech Republic relief pitcher Tomas Oppelt made a throwing error to third base, allowing Hartford to score. Vigoren later scored on an overthrow by Czech Republic shortstop Marek Krejcirik. Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys .

Cheap Jerseys China . -- The Detroit Tigers think Alex Gonzalez is not too old to be a solution to their shortstop problem.BALTIMORE -- For much of the afternoon, Aaron Rodgers was ducking oncoming linemen and misconnecting with hurried throws. When it counted, however, Rodgers came up with the big plays. Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, Eddie Lacy ran for 120 yards and Mason Crosby kicked four field goals as the Green Bay Packers beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 on Sunday. Rodgers went 17 for 32 for 315 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He played most of the game without two of his top three receivers -- James Jones hurt his left knee on a first-quarter play, and Randall Cobb left for good after being struck on his right knee on a tackle by Matt Elam. And still, Rodgers was magnificent. His 64-yarder to Nelson gave Green Bay a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter. After the Ravens closed to 19-17 on an 18-yard touchdown catch by Dallas Clark with 2:04 remaining, Rodgers clinched the victory with a 52-yard completion to Jermichael Finley on a third-and-3. Rodgers completed only seven passes after halftime, yet those plays totalled 199 yards. "Days like today remind you of why you love this game so much," Rodgers said. "Offensively, were struggling a little bit, but we found a way to make enough plays to win." The Ravens (3-3) had won 13 straight at home against NFC foes. "Aaron made some really good plays out of the pocket in the second half," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. "Early, he held it and took some sacks. Later, he held it and found some openings." Rodgers received ample aid from a depleted defence. Despite playing without injured linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones, the Packers limited Baltimore to 47 yards rushing and registered five sacks, including three by A.J. Hawk. "Its kind of been our motto for a long time around here: Next man up. We have to make it work," Hawk said. "We had a lot of young guys out there today who really did a good job." It all added up to Green Bays first road win following losses at San Francisco and Cincinnati. "Its important to win on the road in this league if you want to make the playoffs," Rodgers said. "Thiss was a tough environment. Cheap Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys. This is a team thats defending champs, a football team thats very well-coached, great players on both sides of the ball. This is a great team character-building win." Green Bay went up 9-0 in the third quarter when Crosby kicked a 50-yard field goal to cap a drive that featured a 43-yard pass play from Rodgers to Jarrett Boykin. Baltimore answered with its first score, a 23-yard field goal by Justin Tucker following a 59-yard completion from Joe Flacco to rookie Marlon Brown. Harassed and hurried for much of the afternoon, Rodgers finally came up with a signature moment. He started to his left, then rolled right before lofting a perfect spiral to Nelson, who had gotten behind Lardarius Webb. Down 16-3, the Ravens began playing with a sense of urgency. Flacco directed a 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones with 11:52 remaining. Jones, who missed the previous four weeks with a knee injury, finished with two catches for 42 yards and had a 35-yard kickoff return. Looking to enhance Green Bays 16-10 lead, Rodgers and the Packers held onto the ball for just over 7 1/2 minutes before Crosby kicked a 31-yard field goal with 4:17 remaining. It turned out to be the game-winner. Flacco went 20 for 34 for 342 yards and got no help from the running game -- Ray Rice finished with 34 yards on 14 carries and was stuffed three straight times inside the 5 during the second quarter. "Weve got to be better on first and second down," Flacco said. Baltimore accumulated only 36 yards of offence during the first quarter, zero on the ground. In the second quarter, a peculiar sequence of events began when Green Bays Ryan Taylor blocked a punt. The ball bounced beyond the line of scrimmage, was touched by John Kuhn of the Packers and recovered by Baltimore at its own 41-yard line. The Ravens subsequently got a first-and-goal at the Green Bay 4, but four straight runs failed to get the ball into the end zone. Late in the half, Flacco was sacked and lost the ball. Green Bays Datone Jones recovered and Crosby connected on a 31-yard field goal as time expired for a 6-0 lead.
