try to get another win and try

MIAMI -- With one swing, Freddy Galvis ended the Philadelphia Phillies scoring drought. Deatrich Wise Jr. Womens Jersey . Soon their losing streak was over, too.Galvis hit a two-run homer to snap a streak of 18 consecutive scoreless innings for the Phillies, who stopped a six-game slide with a 6-2 victory over the fading Miami Marlins on Monday.Im just happy to get a couple of runs, Philadelphia manager Pete Mackanin said.The Phillies run total was their highest since Aug. 14. They rank last in the majors in runs, and managed only 11 while going 0-6 during a homestand last week.Everything was going weird when we were back home, Galvis said. Wed get men on base and we didnt drive them home. This win is going to be good for us.Now its the Marlins who are desperate for a victory. Theyve lost four in a row and are 11-22 since Aug. 1, with their thin depth an issue as injuries mount.We knew that we were going to be challenged depth-wise, manager Don Mattingly said. We needed a little bit of luck and everything to fall in its slots. In the past month and a half, it has probably fallen the wrong way, and it has put us in a bind.Miami fell two games below .500 for the first time since April 27 and could be headed for a seventh consecutive losing season.Philadelphias Jerad Eickhoff (10-13) allowed the first two batters to score and then settled down to pitch six innings. The Phillies have won five of his past six starts, and he overcame a 2-8 start to reach the 10-win mark for the first time.Anytime you get double-digit wins, its a huge testament to what we as pitchers try to do, Eickhoff said.Eickhoff and three relievers combined to retire the final 15 Marlins in order.Jake Esch (0-1) allowed three runs in five innings in his second major league start.Its a positive step in the right direction for me personally, Esch said. But it ended up as a loss for the Fish again. So I have to be a little bit better.The Phillies managed only one hit off Esch until the fifth, when they scored three runs. Galvis upper-deck homer made it 2-all, and Peter Bourjos tripled and came home when shortstop Miguel Rojas mishandled a one-out grounder for an error.Bourjos had three hits and scored twice. Jimmy Paredes had a pinch-hit, two-run single in the seventh.The Marlins mustered only six hits. They havent homered at home since slugger Giancarlo Stanton went on the disabled list Aug. 14 with a strained groin.GALVIS POWERGalvis has 16 homers, but his on-base percentage is only .270.We want better than that, Mackanin said of the latter stat. Its nice hes capable of hitting the long ball, but I want him to be more of a line-drive hitter. Consistency and quality at-bats are what were looking for.POOR COMMANDMarlins right-hander Austin Brice made two throwing errors -- one to first base and one to second -- in the Phillies three-run seventh.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: RF Stanton might be available to pinch-hit soon, Mattingly said. Hes moving pretty good, Mattingly said. Hes feeling good. He has been able to swing the bat. Its just a matter of what he can do, and how safely he can do it. ... 1B Justin Bour (right ankle) might be activated Tuesday, Mattingly said. ... Rojas left with a left groin strain, and his status is day to day.UP NEXTMarlins RHP Jose Urena (3-5, 5.40 ERA) faces Phillies LHP Adam Morgan (1-9, 6.21 ERA) on Tuesday. Over his past three starts, Urena is 2-1 with a 2.04 ERA. Derek Rivers Jersey. Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute. Three minutes after the break, a simple through pass from Paulinho freed Oscar and the Chelsea star rounded goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong to extend Brazils lead. Antonio Garcia Womens Jersey . Schenn scored the game-winning goal and added two assists to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday.http:///...cia-Patriots-Jersey/ .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tony Stewart admits he faces a very steep, uphill battle to avoid elimination Sunday from the Chase for the Sprint Cup at Dover International Speedway.But he also readily admits that theres only so much he can do, and the frustration that a driver plays only so much -- or so little -- of a role in a sport that has become increasingly reliant on engineering is one of the reasons he will retire from Cup racing after this season.When we come off the truck [on Friday], we fight the same thing for three days and theres nothing I can do to fix it, Stewart told reporters Wednesday during a NASCAR-mandated media tour as part of his Chase obligations. Thats whats so frustrating for me as a driver. That is part of why Im ready to do something different is because I cant make a difference anymore.I cant do different things with my feet and different things with my hands and run a different line and fix the problem. I used to be able to do that. I cant do that anymore. You just get so frustrated you cant see straight.The three-time Cup champion joked about trying to not get suspended for his final eight races if he said too much, acknowledging he is exhausted from trying to play a role of outspoken veteran in a sport where he believes the drivers are often afraid to share their feelings.You can only beat the drum for so long and it can only fall on deaf ears for so long before you finally say, The people that need to make it better cant make it better, Stewart said.Stewart, 45, said Ive had my fill of fighting the fight as the driver to draw attention to issues of the way the sport operates.Theres 39 of these guys that 99 out of 100 times wont say a thing about it to [the media] or NASCAR or anybody else, and Im the one guy that most of the time will go, Man, this is a bad thing to talk about and I shouldnt taalk about it, but Ill get pissed off enough to talk about it, Stewart said. Antonio Garcia Patriots Jersey. ecause I believe its worth talking about, and its worth addressing and its worth it at times when youre not getting their attention, youre like, OK, now Ive got to go a different way to get their attention to do something about it. That normally is when I get slapped on the hand with a fine.That doesnt mean Stewart is dreading the next eight weeks. He is 11 points out of the current Chase cutoff heading into Dover, a 1-mile concrete track where he has struggled in recent years.Ive got to go out and do the best I can with what Ive got, he said. Hopefully its good enough. If its not, its not. ... Right now, Im in a large, dark room and dont know where the wall is, let alone the light switch [to flip to run well].While Stewart plans to retire from Cup racing, he said he has told his sprint-car team management to be ready for him to run 40-50 races next season. He will have to wait until February to race because he will have screws taken out of his back -- he missed the first eight Cup races this year after suffering a broken back in a hard landing while driving a dune buggy -- in December. He said his first race next year will be on pavement and will be in someone elses equipment, but he wouldnt reveal more than that.Im going to enjoy these last eight weeks, no matter what happens this weekend, he said. Am I going to be upset if I dont make it to the next round? Yeah, absolutely. Thats natural. Thats what a competitor should be like.But if we dont, its not the end of my year. I have got seven more weeks after this weekend to go and do the best I can, try to get another win and try to finish on a high note. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
