OAKLAND, Calif. http://www.jordan5uk.com/men-s-nike-kobe-ix-em-low-basketball-shoes-teal-orange-646701-106.html . -- Drew Pomeranz approached his fill-in start the same way he has every outing in relief this season. Maybe thats why he had so much more success than hes used to as a starter. Pomeranz pitched five scoreless innings for his second win in his past 20 starts and the Oakland Athletics salvaged a split of a doubleheader by beating the Seattle Mariners 2-0 in the nightcap Wednesday. "It felt a little weird at first," Pomeranz said. "I was trying to take the same mentality Ive had all year. Ive had some success doing that, staying in the stretch, keeping things as simple as I can out there. Just tried to treat it like I was coming into a game." The Mariners overcame a shaky start from ace Felix Hernandez to win the opener 6-4 on Justin Smoaks two-out single in the 10th inning. Despite the loss in the nightcap, Seattle heads home satisfied following a 7-2 road trip that also included stops in New York and Houston. "To come out of this series 7-2 is just an unbelievable trip in my opinion," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "Just phenomenal. I was very proud of the team and how they played. We put ourselves in a pretty good position." Yoenis Cespedes homered for the second straight day and Craig Gentry scored from first on a single by Jed Lowrie to help the As snap a six-game home losing streak. Pomeranz (2-1) was sharp in his first major league start since last July, allowing two hits and no walks in five innings with five strikeouts as he mixed in his change-up for the first time all season. Pomeranz won just one of his final 19 starts with Colorado, leading to an off-season trade to the As where he has pitched well in relief. But he stepped when the As needed another starter for the doubleheader and got the win. "I couldnt have expected any more than that," manager Bob Melvin aid. "Pretty fantastic for a guy who hasnt started a game for us in spring or this season." The As took the lead in the third. Gentry ran on the pitch from first base on a full count with two outs when Lowries popup fell between left fielder Cole Gillespie and shortstop Brad Miller for a hit. Cespedes added to the lead in the fourth with a solo homer off Erasmo Ramirez (1-4), who was called up from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day to make the start. Ramirez allowed two runs in six innings. Dan Otero, who allowed the go-ahead hit in the 10th inning of the opener, pitched three scoreless innings of relief and Jim Johnson finished the three-hitter for his second save and first since losing the closers job a month ago. "Thats what hes used to doing -- 1-2-3 today," Melvin said. "That was huge." This was just the second traditional doubleheader in Oakland in the past 16 years, with the other in 2011. The makeup game was necessary because a game was postponed April 4 when the field was unplayable after there was no tarp on it overnight. Hernandez failed to strike out a batter for the first time Aug. 19, 2008, against the Chicago White Sox, ending a streak of 179 straight starts with at least one strikeout. He allowed four runs -- three earned -- and matched his career worst against Oakland by giving up 11 hits in 6 1-3 innings. "No strikeouts, not a good breaking ball, not a good change-up," Hernandez said. "Thats what happens when you dont have good stuff." Brandon Moss hit an RBI triple that capped a three-run seventh against Hernandez, but the As could not hold a late lead as Robinson Cano tied the game with an RBI single off Luke Gregerson in the eighth. Smoak gave the Mariners the lead when he hit a chopper off the glove of leaping first baseman Daric Barton for an RBI single off Otero in the 10th after Ryan Cook (0-1) left the game with a strained right forearm. Cook will have an MRI on Thursday but does not believe the injury is serious. Yoervis Medina (2-1) pitched the ninth for the win, and Fernando Rodney pitched the 10th for his ninth save in 10 chances. Oakland centre fielder Coco Crisp strained his neck in the opener crashing into the wall to make a leaping catch. He is expected to miss a few days. NOTES: Corey Hart and Mike Zunino hit solo homers for the Mariners in the opener. ... Hisashi Iwakuma (1-0) takes the mound for the Mariners on Thursday when they open a four-game home series against Kansas City. ... Oakland begins a three-game series at home against Washington on Friday. http://www.jordan5uk.com/men-s-nike-kobe-xi-elite-basketball-shoes-white-purple-black-822675.html . George Hill had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Pacers, who stayed atop the overall NBA standings despite losing twice on their West Coast trip. Los Angeles kept it close into the second half before the Pacers finished an easy win over the injury-riddled Lakers, who have lost five straight. http://www.jordan5uk.com/304775-141-air-jordan-7-vii-retro-white-french-blue-flint-grey-a07009.html . -- Among the 31 players at the Montreal Canadiens rookie camp, none feels closer to cracking the NHL roster than right winger Aaron Palushaj. http://www.jordan5uk.com/men-s-nike-kobe-ix-em-low-basketball-shoes-deep-garnet-hyper-crimson-cave-purple-metallic-gold-646701-678.html . The Oilers jumped into the free agent market early by signing defencemen Keith Aulie (six-foot-six, 228 pounds) and Mark Fayne (6-3, 210 pounds) and left-winger Benoit Pouliot (6-3, 197-pounds). Two days earlier MacTavish traded lightweight forward Sam Gagner to Tampa Bay for 6-3, 203-pound right winger Ted Purcell.CALGARY - On paper, its the mismatch of this CFL season. The Calgary Stampeders, holder of the leagues best record at 10-3, host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with the worst at 2-11 on Saturday. Watch this game live on TSN, tonight at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt. The Stampeders were already playoff-bound, so its tempting for them to look past the hapless Bombers. "I really hope so, but I doubt it," Winnipeg head coach Tim Burke said. "I dont think they will overlook us at all." Calgarys record against East Division opponents is 6-1. Winnipeg is their final Eastern foe this regular season. The Stampeders then meet the B.C. Lions twice and the Edmonton Eskimos and Saskatchewan Roughriders once in games which will determine the West Division playoff seedings. Winnipeg joins Calgary in the West next season with the arrival of the Ottawa Redblacks. The Bombers havent won at McMahon Stadium since 2002, ant the Stampaders are 19-9 against Winnipeg since 2000. The Bombers are not mathematically eliminated from this years playoffs, but Winnipeg is running low on both games to win and for division rivals to lose to qualify for the post-season. "Sometimes when you play teams with that kind of record, if you dont focus on the team and you focus on their record, sometimes youll get a rude awakening," Stampeder quarterback Kevin Glenn said. "It happens when a team lets its guard down and starts to believe all that stuff about this team is 2-11, they probably dont really want to play this game, theyre probably ready to go home. Thats not the case. You watch them play, the film weve been watching the past three games, theyve come out to play." Among the CFL statistical categories in which Calgary ranked first and Winnipeg last heading into Fridays games are field goals, average points scored per game, time of possession, net rushing yards and average rushing yards. While the Bombers were still casting for a legitimate starting quarterback, the Stampeders have an embarrassment of riches with three. Glenn, 1-1 since returning from injury and 6-2 this season, will start Saturday. Expect backup Drew Tate to get his first throws in a game since July 7 if the score becomes lopsided. Bo Levi Mitchell led Calgary to a 37-24 victory in Winnipeg on July 30. Tate has been sidelined with a troublesome throwing arm injury this season. "At some point in time in the not-too-distance future I would like to get Drew in the game, but the game will decide that, not me," Stampeder head coach John Hufnagel said. "He hasnt played a whole lot of football lately. Its good for himself to get some snaps and get used to playing football again." Quarterback Max Hall getss his third consecutive start and fifth this season for Winnipeg. http://www.jordan5uk.com/men-s-nike-kobe-viii-gs-basketball-shoes-baltic-blue-neo-turquoise-windchill-bright-citrus-555586-401.html. . He was replaced at halftime by Jason Boltus in last weeks 53-17 loss to the Lions, whose defence scored three touchdowns. "I think were getting better even though sometimes it doesnt show," Hall said. "I think were getting better with the details. I like the game plan this week. Im excited to play. "I know a lot of people arent giving us a chance, but I think we believe in each other. I said the other day if I can eliminate a few of the mistakes Im making and lead this football team, well be all right." A subplot to Saturdays game is the race for the CFLs sack title. Winnipeg defensive end Alex Hall leads with 15, followed by Calgarys Charleston Hughes with 13 and Cordarro Law with 10. While Winnipeg has given up 46 sacks this season, Calgary has allowed a league-low 28. The defensive front four is a bright light in Winnipegs dismal season. In addition to Hall, defensive linemen Kenny Mainor, Zach Anderson and Bryant Turner have a combined 20 sacks between them. "It gets you a little excited knowing were considered the two best defensive lines in the league," Hughes said. "Obviously we are the best defensive line in the league. "They pretty much rush every down. We dont have many opportunities to get sacks because we do have coverage responsibilities. We cover backs, we cover receivers and line up all over the field. That cuts our pass rushes in half as defensive ends." Never afraid to throw a little gas on the fire, Hughes called Hall "an adequate pass rusher, but I think it has more to do with the entire defensive line that they have." Hall wasnt taking the bait. "They have good players, him being one of them, but I think we have the best line," he said. "Weve just to go out and show it. "Or course I want to win (the sack title) and its kind of funny Im going up against a guy who is right behind me and they have another dude Laws that pretty good too. Im battling those guys, but its important. I want to show Im the best." Wide receiver Joe West returns to Calgarys active roster after suffering a separated shoulder July 20 against Montreal. He was averaging a touchdown a game before his injury. Notes: West and wide receiver Maurice Price, Calgarys leader in touchdown receptions with six, will be on the field together for the first time this season Saturday . . . Former Blue Bomber quarterback Glenn is 16-7 in two seasons with Calgary . . . The Stampeders home winning streak halted at 10 with a 33-27 loss to Toronto on Sept. 22 . . . Winnipeg has lost 10 of their last 11 and five in a row on the road.
