ST. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Kerryon-Johnson-Draft-Jersey/ . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn has been among the best first-half pitchers in the majors since cracking the St. Louis Cardinals rotation in 2011, reaching double-figure win totals before the All-Star break all three seasons. The Los Angeles Dodgers saw a pitcher determined to finish strong, too. Lynn won his third straight start Friday night, leading the Cardinals to a 3-2 victory. "Im not worried about the rest of the season," Lynn said. "Im just worried about my next start -- whenever that may be." Lynn is 33-15 with a 3.54 ERA before the All-Star break and 12-9 with a 3.91 ERA after the break. Hes been among the pitchers getting the most run support, too. Manager Mike Matheny repeated his assertion that Lynn (11-6) is "one of the most underrated pitchers in the game." "Despite what anybody else thinks, hes got a lot of wins and theres a reason," Matheny said. "Its because hes got great stuff." Matt Holliday homered and doubled with three RBIs in support of Lynn. Kolten Wong had two hits and scored on both of Hollidays RBI hits for the Cardinals against the team they beat in the NLCS last fall. They have won six of eight and remained a game behind the Brewers for the NL Central lead. "Really, I just kept my approach simple and tried to hit the ball hard back through the middle of the field," Holliday said. "I dont get ahead of myself. Ive learned playing this long to take this thing day to day." A.J. Ellis had an RBI double for the Dodgers, battling the Giants for the NL West lead. They remained offensively challenged coming out of the All-Star break, totalling 10 runs the last six games. Hollidays seventh homer, estimated at 435 feet to straightaway centre, came off Dan Haren (8-7). Lynn gave up two runs on four hits in six-plus innings. He struck out nine and worked around four walks, which tied his season high. Lynn has 44 wins the last three seasons, one behind Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright for most in the league. He bounced back from season worsts of two innings and six earned runs at Los Angeles on June 28 before leaving with a blister. "I thought he used his breaking ball more. I dont think he used his curveball in L.A. hardly at all," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "It looked like it took us a while to get going." Haren piled up 99 pitches in 4 2-3 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits, and is among the National League leaders with 20 homers allowed. Hes totalled 8 2-3 innings his last two starts and has lost his last three outings overall. "I made a bad pitch to Holliday," Haren said. "I actually didnt make that many mistakes. It seemed like everything they hit in the air was falling, and there was nothing I could do." The Dodgers left the bases loaded in the third when Matt Kemp struck out. The Cardinals stranded three in the fourth when Lynn bounced out after an intentional walk to Tony Cruz. Consecutive doubles by Juan Uribe and Ellis leading off the seventh chased Lynn. Ellis scored on a wild pitch to cut the deficit to one. The Dodgers stranded two against Pat Neshek in the eighth and Trevor Rosenthal had two strikeouts in a perfect ninth for his 29th save in 33 chances. NOTES: The pairing for Saturday is Zack Greinke (11-5, 2.73), coming off his second All-Star nod, against Joe Kelly (1-1, 3.44), making his second start coming off the DL from a hamstring injury. Greinke has won his last four starts against the Cardinals and is 9-3 with a 2.93 ERA for his career against them. ... Mattingly didnt mind Kemp saying he was open to a trade if he didnt get regular playing time in a published report during the break. "The headline catches your eye and you read it and you go, Its not that big of a deal," Mattingly said. Mattingly also didnt mind that Kemp wanted to play centre field, saying "Thats fine, he can view himself however he wants. Im playing him in left." ... Holliday reached 1,000 career RBIs last month. ... The Cardinals have won their first home game after the All-Star break seven straight seasons. Jarrad Davis Jersey . The England international raised his middle finger toward Manchester City supporters during Saturdays game at Etihad Stadium, which Arsenal lost 6-3. The incident was not seen by match officials at the time but the FA charged Wilshere retrospectively after a study of video footage. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Ziggy-Ansah-Draft-Jersey/ . Both sides came closest to scoring in the first half, when Roma had a goal from Mattia Destro waved off for offside and Inters Rodrigo Palacio headed high. "A draw was a fair result. Neither squad had many chances," Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic said. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Theo-Riddick-Draft-Jersey/ . Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Defensive Depth TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun is reporting the Toronto Maple Leafs have considerable interest in unrestricted free-agent defenceman Dan Boyle.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers are competing for their playoff lives with two games to go, slim as those chances might be.Surprisingly, the San Francisco 49ers find themselves playing only to finish on a strong note — not for another deep post-season run they had become so used to in the first three years under embattled coach Jim Harbaugh.It will be a little strange, indeed, for San Francisco with nothing at stake Saturday night on its home field.Not that Rivers expects Harbaughs team to back down one bit at this stage despite the uncomfortable circumstances and constant, swirling questions about Harbaughs future with one season remaining on his $25 million, five-year contract.This is a team we respect a lot. Theyve been to three championship games and theres lots of reasons why maybe this year didnt turn out, Rivers said. Its a late game in December with one week to go. Two teams are in different circumstances, but both have a lot of prideful guys and guys who are going to give everything. It will be a playoff-type intensity type of game.The Chargers (8-6) are in a closing stretch that included a win at Baltimore and home losses to New England and Denver. Theyve gone from controlling their own destiny in the wild-card race to needing to win at San Francisco and at Kansas City, plus to get some help.San Francisco (7-7) has its first three-game losing streak during Harbaughs tenure, with two of those coming at the hands of the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks in an 18-day span.Now, the Niners are playing for a winning season.Theres a lot at stake. Thats the way we approach it, Harbaugh said.Here are some other things to watch for Saturday at Levis Stadium:BANGED-UP CHARGERS: Rivers sat out practice Wednesday, apparently to rest chest and back injuries. He said he anticipates starting Saturday night.He would be down one of his favourite options, Keenan Allen, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a broken right collarbone. In addition, inside linebacker Donald Butler went on IR on Monday with a dislocated left elbow.Defensive tackle Corey Liuget said the Chargers need to learn from the losses and move on fast.We always know we can play with the best of them, but in order to be the best, to be considered one of the top three to five teams in the NFL, youve got to beat the beest and we didnt prove that the last two weeks, he said. Kerry Hyder Jersey. KAEPERNICK PUSHES ON: Despite the disappointment this year, Colin Kaepernick would like to give San Francisco any possible momentum to take into the off-season.Everybody thought these 49ers would be playing well into January. His subpar season has been key in the results.I think thats what everyones expectation was, including ours, Kaepernick said. You dont play this game for any other reason than to try to win a Super Bowl. And its disappointing that were not going to be able to accomplish that this year, but we have to keep moving forward.WILL GORE GO?: Midweek, 49ers running back Frank Gore declared himself symptom-free from a concussion suffered last Sunday at Seattle and Harbaugh expects him to play. In what could be his final two weeks with the 49ers, Gore needs 196 yards rushing for his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season and eighth in his 10 NFL seasons.CHARGERS OFFENSE: The Chargers scored only one offensive touchdown in each of their past two games.San Diego could be without running back Ryan Mathews for a second straight game due to an ankle injury. Without their running game, Rivers is more vulnerable.You definitely want to come out and play your best ball, wide receiver Eddie Royal said. You want to make a statement and win those games, especially at home. That didnt happen, but it didnt take away from the type of team and type of players we know we have.San Diegos defence has played well lately, but the offence has dragged down the team.If you play red-area defence the way our defence was playing the last couple of games we should win these games, coach Mike McCoy said. But its a team game.NO MORE MCDONALD: The 49ers released defensive lineman Ray McDonald on Wednesday amid a sexual assault investigation by San Jose police only a month after the Santa Clara County district attorneys office decided not to file charges against him in a domestic violence case.His dismissal leaves a void on what has been one of the NFLs best front seven units in recent years.What I can tell you is I was extremely disappointed, as all of us were, to hear about the latest allegations, general manager Trent Baalke said.___AP Sports Writer Bernie Wilson in San Diego contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
