Butler gave up a hit to Pennington and a double to Wil Nieves from MJL456's blog

ST. Air Max 90 Ingrosso . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Matt Joyce sent a message with his bat. Joyce hit one of three homers off Jon Lester to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox 8-3 on Tuesday night. Joyce, one day after being hit by a pitch that sparked a bench-clearing scrum, put the Rays up 7-3 on a two-run shot in the fifth that ended Lesters night. "Its a great feeling, especially to help your team win," Joyce said. "Ive never really been the type of person to talk a lot of trash, so I wanted, of course, to come out and play a good game. Play the game the right way and win the ballgame." Desmond Jennings homered twice, while Evan Longoria also went deep for the Rays. Roberto Hernandez (4-6) allowed three runs and seven hits over seven-plus innings. Lester (6-3) had his winless streak reach five starts, including three losses, since beating the Rays on May 15. The left-hander gave up seven runs, eight hits and seven walks in 4 2-3 innings. "Over the last two or three, I think Ive thrown the ball better than what the linescore showed," Lester said. "This one, obviously, it is what it is. Its just terrible. I did a terrible job of helping our bullpen out, a terrible job of keeping the ball down in the zone. The list goes on. This is solely on me. I just flat out didnt get it done." The teams were coming off a testy 14-inning game Monday night won by the Red Sox 10-8 that took 5 hours, 24 minutes. An on-field scrum took place in the sixth after Bostons John Lackey hit Joyce in the centre of the back with a pitch. Lackey insisted he meant no harm, though the Rays hardly were convinced of that as Joyce and Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon both said it was intentional. "Im sure he was, definitely, mentally involved in this game," Maddon said of Joyce. "He had himself a nice night." Hernandez hit Dustin Pedroia, who was leading off the eighth Tuesday, with a pitch that got away from the right-hander. Pedroia immediately ran to first base and nothing else ensued. The Rays grabbed a 4-3 lead during the third on run-scoring singles by Ryan Roberts and Jose Molina. Longoria made it 5-3 on a solo shot in the fourth. Tampa Bay took a 2-1 advantage on Jennings solo homer in the second. He also had a solo drive off Jose De La Torre in the fifth for his third career multihomer game. "Anytime they get over the fence it feels pretty good," Jennings said. Mike Napoli had a two-run single in the third that put Boston ahead 3-2. After Pedroia gave the Red Sox a 1-0 lead in the first with a sacrifice fly, Tampa Bay tied it in the bottom half when James Loney walked with bases loaded on the fourth free pass of the inning issued by Lester. "The first inning kind of sums up the whole night," Lester said. "I was not able to repeat whatever pitch it may be, fastball, curveball, changeup, cutter. I just was not able to repeat, whether it be a location or just the pitch itself. Its not good." Bostons Jose Iglesias extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a single in the third. Pedroia had his 14-game hitting streak end. NOTES: Joyce is 4 for 8 with two homers against Lester. ...

Air Max 95 Scontate .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.airmaxoutletscontate.it/ . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. ST. LOUIS -- Shelby Miller gave himself a boost with his bat. The rookie pitcher hit his first career home run and pitched six sharp innings, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over the Arizona Diamondbacks 12-8 Thursday night. "I havent hit a home run since high school, at least in a game," said Miller, whose 1.91 earned run average continues to lead the National League. "It was neat. It will be something I remember for sure. Sometimes you get lucky." Miller (7-3) allowed two runs and six hits. He struck out nine and walked none. Arizona scored three times in the ninth, and Edward Mujica got the last two outs for his 18th save in 18 chances. Matt Adams and Daniel Descalso homered in an eight-run fourth inning off Ian Kennedy. Matt Holliday and Matt Carpenter also connected for the Cardinals. Kennedy (3-4) was tagged for 10 runs and 13 hits in four innings. Kennedy nearly escaped the fourth with giving up just one run, but his throw off on Yadier Molinas comebacker pulled shortstop Didi Gregorius wide of second base. What could have been an inning-ending double play instead led to Adams three-run homer and Descalsos two-run shot. "I think weve made that play and we expect to make that play," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "It didnt happen today and it cost us." Kennedy endured the entire inning and threw 50 pitches. He had 99 total, only 60 for strikes. He said typically hell ask his middle infielders which one will cover the bag in a situation like that before he makes a pitch. He failed to do so and when he saw second baseman Cliff Pennington break toward the bag his instinct was to throw it to him until Gregorius took charge. By then, Kennedy double clutched and threw wide. "That whole sequence. It was perfect," he said. "I was trying to get a double play in that situation. It would have been a lot different if I was able to turn. Thats just my fault. I should have known who covered the bag just before that pitch." The Carrdinals hit five homers in a game for the first time since last July 27. Nike Tn Scontate. The previous time they did it at home was June 24, 2005, at the former Busch Stadium. David Freese extended his career-best hitting streak to 16 games for St. Louis. Descalso scored twice in the big fourth and finished with three hits, including a double. The first five batters in the St. Louis starting lineup all got two hits, as did Miller. Manager Mike Matheny liked what he saw from Miller at the plate. He hopes that the pitcher doesnt let it change his approach. ""Youll take any runs you can get, but we hope he doesnt go up there trying to do that every time," Matheny said. The Cardinals greeted reliever Matt Reynolds with back-to-back home runs from Miller and Carpenter to open the fifth and stretch their lead to 12-2. Arizona scored twice in the first on an RBI groundout by Paul Goldschmidt and a single by Miguel Montero. "I have a tendency of letting up in the first inning," Miller said. "I have got to figure out a way to be as aggressive like I am in the middle of the game and toward the end, in the first couple of innings. I just wasnt doing it early on." Gerardo Parra had three hits, including an RBI single in a three-run seventh for Arizona. The Diamondbacks scored three more in the ninth when rookie Keith Butler gave up a hit to Pennington and a double to Wil Nieves before walking three consecutive batters.
