MILWAUKEE – Anthony Rizzo was grateful for Pedro Strop on Friday night. Pernell McPhee Jersey . An obscure rule confused Rizzo and cost the Chicago Cubs a run, but the bullpen managed to secure the road win.Chris Coghlan hit a leadoff homer in the first and Javier Baez had his second career three-hit game, leading the Cubs to a 6-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.The odd play occurred in the eighth inning and resulted in Cubs manager Rick Renteria being ejected.Second base umpire Jeff Nelson called a balk on Strop, but Carlos Gomez hit the right-handers pitch on the ground to third.When Rizzo heard the balk call, he didnt cover first base. Luis Valbuena held the ball at third and Gomez reached on a single.I heard balk, and Ive never seen that play, not on TV, not ever, Rizzo said. Thankfully, it didnt cost us the game.The rulebook essentially gives a batter a free swing in that situation. Usually the ball is dead on a balk, but the rule has one key exception: Unless the batter reaches first on a hit, an error, a base on balls, a hit batter, or otherwise, and all other runners advance at least one base, in which case the play proceeds without reference to the balk.Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said his team is taught to swing at all pitches on balk calls.As a hitter, if you ever hear a balk, you just swing at wherever the pitch is, he said.Renteria argued whether Strop had balked and was ejected. The Brewers had runners on the corners and one out, and Rickie Weeks hit a run-scoring groundout to make it 6-4. Ryan Braun then struck out to end the inning.We hit pretty well with runners in scoring position, but we just havent come through the past couple of weeks, Weeks said.Milwaukee went 2 for 18 with runners in scoring position and left 11 men on base. Jean Segura went 3 for 4 with his fifth homer.The Brewers lost for the 24th time in 34 games on a day the team said it would retire uniform No. 1 to honour retiring Commissioner Bud Selig, who bought the Seattle Pilots out of bankruptcy and moved them to Milwaukee in 1970.Coghlan homered on Jimmy Nelsons second pitch of the game. He also doubled in the third and scored three times.Neil Ramirez (3-3) pitched a perfect inning for the win and Hector Rondon got three outs for his 28th save in 32 chances.Nelson (2-9) was charged with five runs and six hits in 4 1-3 innings.Baez singled in each of his first three plate appearances and drove in two runs. It was his second three-hit performance in 50 games since joining the team on Aug. 5. He also had three hits, including two home runs, in his third game on Aug. 7.NERVOUS STARTEric Jokisch pitched four innings for Chicago in his first major league start. He allowed two runs, one earned, and three hits while throwing 86 pitches.I was a lot more nervous than I thought I would be, he said.SPOT STARTNelson was sent to the bullpen in early September but was starting for Matt Garza, who was shut down due to shoulder tightness.The command is kind of all over the place, Roenicke said. Made some great pitches and then all of a sudden, its high and down the middle.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: Garza was scratched due to stiffness in his right shoulder. The team said he would have started if the game had any bearing on the teams playoff situation. Garza went 8-8 with a 3.64 ERA in 27 starts in the first year of his four-year, $50 million contract.UP NEXTCubs: Tsuyoshi Wada will start for the Cubs in Game 2 of the series. The team scratched Kyle Hendricks for Sundays final game of the season and said Jacob Turner would start instead. Hendricks has pitched 182 innings between the Cubs and the minor leagues this year and the team said it had nothing to gain by having him pitch the season finale.Brewers: Wily Peralta, Saturdays scheduled starter, is 16-11 overall, but 0-3 vs. the Cubs this year. Owner Mark Attanasio and general manager Doug Melvin will discuss the clubs September collapse before Saturdays game. Paul Richardson Redskins Jersey . The Henry Burris-led squad finished second in the East Division before advancing to the Grey Cup where they ultimately fell to the home field advantage wielding Saskatchewan Roughriders. Troy Apke Jersey . Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd. „Train this hard for this long, its such a long camp and I see my title shot disappear,“ said Thomson, who fought most of the fight with a broken right hand. TORONTO — For the second straight night, Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry stated his case as an NBA all-star. But even after pouring in a game-high 33 points in a convincing win over the Orlando Magic, Lowry was managing expectations ahead of Thursdays announcement of the reserves for next months game. „I would be very honoured. It would be a great individual accomplishment,“ Lowry said when asked if the NBA coaches decision mattered to him. „But at the end of the day, its just another day for me.“ Even though many would argue Lowry deserves a spot in New Orleans, hes widely expected to be snubbed, a victim of a perceived abrasive personality rather than anything to do with his play. His play spoke volumes again Wednesday. Lowry had 11 assists to go with his 33 points in the Raptors 98-83 win before 17,694 fans at Air Canada Centre. It was Lowrys second consecutive 30-plus point performance — a career first. The feat is even more impressive because its come in the absence of injured DeMar DeRozan, another potential all-star. „Hes stepped it up,“ Toronto head coach Dwane Casey said of Lowry, who hit all five of his three-point attempts in the first quarter as the Raptors built a 33-20 lead and led all the way. „I keep my fingers crossed that the coaches voted him in because he deserves it,“ Casey said. „I feel like both guys (Lowry and DeRozan) deserve it, because right now hes one of the best point guards in the league.“ Lowry, who had 31 points in a win over the Nets in Brooklyn on Monday, set the tone for the night by opening the scoring with a 26-foot jump shot 58 seconds into the game to make it 3-0. The Raptors led from there, winning their second straight game and fourth in five. „Were just getting better and were grinding it out eveery day,“ Lowry said. Alex Smith Jersey. Amir Johnson added 22 points and 11 rebounds while Jonas Valanciunas, the second-year centre picked earlier Wednesday to suit up in the Rising Stars Challenge at the all-star weekend in New Orleans next month, added 14 points and 15 rebounds for the Raptors. The win moved Toronto (24-21) three games above .500 for the first time this season. The Raptors, who lead the NBAs Atlantic Division by three games over Brooklyn, were 16-29 after 45 games last season on their way to missing the playoffs for a fifth straight year. „We are hungry and we want to win every game we play,“ said Johnson, who sat in front of his locker after the game with each foot in a bucket of ice nursing an ankle he rolled. „Nobody has an agenda on this team, everybody is sharing the ball.“ Johnson said it would be „awesome“ for Lowry to get his first career all-star nod. „Hes become our all-star and one of the main reasons why we have been so successful winning these games,“ Johnson said. Facing the NBAs worst road team, the Raptors jumped on Orlando from the start. Led by Lowry, Toronto matched a club record from November 2009 with eight three-pointers in a quarter in the first, and hit 11 of their first 12 shots of the night from beyond the arc. A stretch of nine straight was the first time the team made that many consecutively since February 2005 against the Los Angeles Lakers. „We made shots. We spaced the floor well,“ Lowry said. The Raptors led by as many as 19 points. Orlando (12-35) cut the lead to eight points with 7:20 to go in the third quarter but thats as close as they got on the way to losing their 10th consecutive road game. The Raptors now head out West on a tough, five-game road trip starting Friday in Denver. Cheap Baseball Twins Jerseys Cheap Baseball Royals Jerseys Cheap Baseball Tigers Jerseys Cheap Baseball Indians Jerseys Cheap Baseball White Sox Jerseys Cheap Baseball Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Baseball Rays Jerseys Cheap Baseball Yankees Jerseys Cheap Baseball Red Sox Jerseys Cheap Baseball Orioles Jerseys Cheap Baseball Astros Jerseys Cheap Baseball Angels JerseysCheap Baseball Athletics Jerseys Cheap Baseball Mariners Jerseys Cheap Baseball Rangers Jerseys ‚ ‚ ‚
