MIAMI -- Josh Donaldsons two-out RBI single scored the go-ahead run from second base in the 14th inning, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Miami Marlins 7-6 Saturday. NMD Canada Sale . For the second game in a row, the Athletics won despite squandering a 4-0 lead. They also overcame a blown save by Sean Doolittle, whose streak of 26 2-3 innings ended when Miami scored the tying run in the ninth. Jeff Francis came on with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 14th to earn his first career save. He struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and Donovan Solano flied out to end the game. AL West leader Oakland has won three in a row and is 6-1 in interleague play. The Marlins have played five games lasting 13 or 14 innings this season, all since June 6, going 0-5. The As were blanked for five consecutive innings before breaking through in the 14th. Brandon Moss doubled with two out against Jacob Turner (2-6). Donaldson singled on the next pitch, and Moss barely beat the throw home from centre fielder Jake Marisnick. The RBI was Donaldsons team-high 60th this season. Jim Johnson (4-2) pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings. The 4-hour, 47-minute game left plenty of time for oddities. Oaklands Coco Crisp scored from third on a strikeout, while teammate Jed Lowrie hit into a 5-6-3 double play. The Athletics Yoenis Cespedes was out when he rose after a slide on a steal attempt, lifted his foot off second base and was tagged. Both teams ran out of healthy position players. Tommy Milone, scheduled to pitch for Oakland on Sunday, flied out when he pinch hit in the 12th. Moss and Alberto Callaspo had two RBIs apiece for the Athletics, who scored four times in the first inning against Nathan Eovaldi. But Miami rallied for a 5-4 lead. The As also squandered a 4-0 lead in their 9-5 win Friday. Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick left the game in the fourth inning with a strained right knee, and is day to day.

When Saltalamacchia threw to first for the out, Crisp sprinted home and easily beat the return throw with a headfirst slide. Sonny Gray couldnt protect Oaklands early lead. He pitched five innings and tied a season high with five runs allowed, leaving him with an ERA of 5.50 over his past six starts. The Athletics vaunted rotation has an ERA of 6.14 over the past 11 games. Miami trailed 6-5 when Giancarlo Stanton doubled with one out in the ninth, ending closer Doolittles streak of 24 consecutive batters retired.

Does he feel like hes played in that many games? "No," he said initially, before reconsidering. http://www.yeezyshoescanada.com/canada-yeezy-boost-350-v2.html . The game was the first of two international friendlies that Canada is playing during the international break, with the second game against Slovenia set for Tuesday in Celje. Canada looked uncomfortable defensively throughout the game, and every free kick that came into Canadas penalty box looked like ending up in the back of the net.TORONTO - Bobby Orr waited 35 years after his final NHL game to write a book. The result is a reflection on the nostalgia of playing hockey on frozen ponds growing up in Parry Sound, Ont., the physical and emotional pain of knee injuries that cut his career short and the off-ice struggles that the legendary Boston Bruins defenceman hasnt talked much about. "Orr: My Story" was also created as something of a how-to book by a grandparent about how parents, coaches and children should approach the sport. "I touch a lot of things, people who have made a difference, people who have sacrificed so I could reach my goals," Orr said in an interview with The Canadian Press. "I talk about a lot of different things and finally I convinced myself that maybe I could put something together that the reader will get something from." Over roughly 300 pages, Orr, with the help of author and former player Vern Stenlund, describes his beginnings as a talented young rushing defenceman through his Hall of Fame NHL career. Lessons, like his fathers hands-off approach to hockey, are dropped in along the way. "People would come up to my father and say, Your sons going to play in the NHL," Orr said. "And hed come to me and say, Look, go out and play, have fun and well see what happens. Thats how it should be." Regrets arent a major part of the narrative, aside from the knee injuries that limited the eight-time Norris Trophy winner to just nine full NHL seasons and parts of three more. In the past, Orr hadnt been all that open about discussing his knee issues, and this book offers a look into the psychology of injury and the mindset of an athlete robbed of the physical ability to do what his mind thinks he can. "In the end thats why I stopped," he said. "I had a way I played, and I just couldnt play like that anymore. I couldnt skate. Skating was my game, and I just couldnt play the game that I used to play, and that was very difficult. To finally sit there and say, Hey, its over, youve taken my skates from me, I cant play anymore was a very difficult thing to do. But I just couldnt do it." Orr mentions early on that it wasnt his intention to dig up dirt from the past. For much of the time, the focus remains on his journey to the NHL and the two Stanley Cups he won with the Bruins. The one person who isnt spared harsh criticism is former agent and former NHL Players Association executive director Alan Eagleson, who stole money from Orr and others along the way. Orrs finances were destroyed by a man who went on to be convicted of fraud and embezzlement. Orr had to be convinced by the books publisher to write about Eagleson, but he conceded it was the right decision and then didnt hold back. "He stole from the guys that he was representing and back in those days, early on, this was supposedly going towards pensions for the players," he said. "Heres a man, hes been a convicted felon, stripped of his Order of Canada, out of the Hall of Fame, disbarred. What he did was disgraceful to the people that trusted him like I did. I trusted Alan. He was like a brother and I trusted him with everything. Not only me but so many players, he hurt so many players. Its incredible." Orr left plenty of room for praise, especially of his wife, Peggy, several minor-hockey coaches, and the player he still admires more than any other, Gordie Howe. Perhaps more than anyone else, Orr singles out Don Cherry, as an entire chapter is devoted to "Grapes," one of his coaches with the Bruins and a longtime friend. "Don came to Parry Sound for an Easter Seals skate-a-thon, so before leaving town we went over to see Grandma Orr," Orr said. "Gram Orr was, she was over 90 then and she was a little ladyy. Yeezy 700 Utility Black Canada. We walked in, she didnt see very well and I walked over and said, You know Don Cherry. Shes looking up at him and she says: I like you. Youre the only one that tells the truth, and shes poking him in the chest. Shes over 90. Like him or dislike him, they watch and they listen." Orr contends that Cherry belongs in the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder, more for his years on "Coachs Corner" as a respected voice than for his one game as a player and six seasons as an NHL head coach. Thats far from the only opinion Orr shares. Now an agent and the head of The Orr Hockey Group, the 65-year-old believes fighting and hitting should remain in the game but that the red line should be put back in and the trapezoid behind the net taken out to reduce injuries. "I think today our game is a little more dangerous because of the size of the players, the speed of the players, the strength of the players, and we have no barriers," Orr said. "I like the open game, but I think weve got to really be careful now. The players always have to be aware of where they are. Many of them are coming through the middle with their heads down. "We are a contact game, but the thing weve got to rid of, weve got to get rid of those high, blind-side hits, the hitting from behind." Even with the concerns about getting hit, Orr said hed enjoy playing today because as a creative skater and puck handler hed have more room to work with than during his career. But he doesnt know if his risky style would be tolerated, especially growing up in an age where kids learn systems and are coached to make the smart play from a young age. "I played a style that most defencemen didnt play," he said. "Coaches didnt like that style: defencemen going down the ice. They did not ask me to change from the time I was 14 through junior and into the pros. They just thought thats the way I was most effective, and I would hope if I was coming into the game today that the coaches and the team would think the same thing." Times have changed, something Orr freely acknowledges. The innocence of he and his friends leaving in the morning to play hockey and being told by their parents to be home by dark just isnt possible in a lot of places anymore. But that doesnt mean Orr is afraid to share his philosophies, like the notion that children — even if theyre that "Next One" — shouldnt play hockey year-round and should be encouraged to play other sports. More than an attempt to get the NHL to change its rules, Orr wants his autobiography to be a teaching tool for parents, coaches and young players. "We dont have any control on what goes on at the NHL level in minor sports. But were supposed to have control over our kids programs," Orr said. "There should be rules (for) what happens inside their organizations, and we all have to work together to make sure its a great experience for every kid. In my case, my fondest memories are of my days of minor hockey, and for some kids thats not happening and thats wrong." Eric Lindross parents asked Orrs folks for advice when Lindros was the so-called "Next One." Their answer was to do nothing, a sentiment their son tries to pass along decades later. "I guarantee any of the parents, if your son or daughter has the ability to play at a higher level, as long as theyre having fun, as long as they love the game, as long as they have passion for the game, theyll get a chance," Orr said. "Keep in mind, .0025 per cent of all kids playing hockey ever play one game (in the NHL), so the chances of your son being the one, its slim. "Its a marathon, not a sprint. Leave the kids, let them play, let them have fun, well see what happens." ' ' '
