her impressive offensive
#1
MIAMI -- Carlos Gomez added another impressive offensive performance during his breakout season. Gomez had four hits, including two triples, drove in three runs, and scored three runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. "He had a very big night, two triples," said Jonathan Lucroy, who drove in four runs. "Anytime you have a guy with that kind of speed and a ballpark this big, things like that are going to happen. He did very well for us tonight and a big part of the win." Gomez, a .247 hitter coming into the season, raised his batting average to .326 on the year with 11 home runs, eight triples, and 36 RBIs in 63 games. "He has put together quite a season so far," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "I had to move him into the third spot with (Ryan) Braun out and he just continues to have good at-bats. Hell get down two strikes and next thing I know hes going the other way, which is what the good hitters do. Hes been impressive." It was the eighth four-hit game in Gomezs career. Gomez had two unimpressive stints with the Mets and Twins before landing in Milwaukee in 2010. "He has learned a lot," Roenicke said. "Hes smarter, his approach is better so its playing more, but its also he has a better idea of what hes doing at the plate." His biggest play of the game came in the sixth. With the Brewers already leading 6-0, Gomez smacked a three-run triple, his third of the series, off Edgar Olmos to score three runs and scored on the play as Derek Dietrichs errant relay throw ended up in the stands. "I saw bases were loaded and tried to put contact on, I knew that guy threw really hard," Gomez said. "I was looking for something middle-away, put good contact on it, and I hit a triple." Jean Segura homered for the Brewers, who have won five of six. "The last week and a half weve been playing really good," Gomez said. "The starting pitching has been awesome. Youre more pumped up when you see the starting pitching be more consistent." Alfredo Figaro (1-0) pitched seven scoreless innings to earn his first victory since Sept. 26, 2009, at the Chicago White Sox. He retired 16 in a row at one point and struck out four. "That was the first win in a while even in Japan, no wins (in a while), so Im glad that I got the win and helped the team too," Figaro said. Both Gomez and Lucroy had bases-clearing triples as the two combined to go 12 for 24 with 12 RBIs in the three-game series. "Give those guys some credit, theyre swinging the bats good and thats a potent lineup right now thats got a lot of guys swinging the bat really well," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. It was the largest margin of victory for the Brewers this season. Miami starter Kevin Slowey (2-6) allowed six runs -- five earned -- and nine hits in five innings. He was on three days rest after he pitched seven scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory in Saturdays 2-1, 20-inning win over the Mets. "Todays game had less to do with rest and more to do with me executing pitches," Slowey said. Slowey is 0-4 with an 8.89 ERA in his past six starts. Lucroy gave the Brewers a 3-0 lead in the first with his three-run triple to right-centre as the ball rolled to the wall. Segura hit his 10th home run of the season in the third for a 4-0 advantage. Norichika Aoki and Lucroy added sacrifice flies in the fourth and fifth to push the lead to 6-0. Ed Lucas had two of Miamis five hits and Giancarlo Stanton drove in the Marlins only run in the ninth. NOTES: Brewers LF Ryan Braun (right thumb) missed his third consecutive game and has not taken batting practice since being removed from Sundays game. Braun is hopeful that he will be in the lineup for the weekend series at Cincinnati. ... Marlins 1B Logan Morrison (right knee) was given the day off after playing three straight games following being reinstated from the disabled list after being sidelined for the first 61 games. ... Miami RHP Henderson Alvarez will make his first rehab start with Class A Jupiter on Thursday. ... Both teams are off on Thursday as the Marlins will send RHP Jose Fernandez (3-3, 3.17 ERA) to the mound on Friday to begin a home series against St. Louis.

Bam Morris Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Ray Lewis Jersey . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. DALLAS -- Jalen Robinette and the Air Force Falcons havent even led since a win over service academy rival Navy that had them unbeaten and maybe thinking about a national ranking.Now its just about survival in the Mountain West Conference.Teriyon Gipson rushed for 140 yards with a touchdown and caught a pass for another score, leading New Mexico to a 45-40 victory over Air Force on Saturday.The Falcons (4-2, 1-2 Mountain West) lost their second straight, and have trailed from the opening minutes to the finish both times after a 35-26 loss at Wyoming a week earlier.When we were 4-0, there was a lot of hype going around, said Robinette, who had his third straight 100-yard receiving game. Came up short twice, but those are the ones that hurt because youre right there. With the group we have, we keep our heads up.Playing at the historic Cotton Bowl not far from his Dallas high school, Gipson ran 60 yards down the sideline on an option pitch to give the Lobos (3-3, 2-1) a 14-3 lead in the first quarter.The neutral site game at the Texas state fair featured teams with a combined 51 players from the Lone Star State, including 17 starters.I always dreamed about playing in the Cotton Bowl, watching Texas-OU, being from Dallas, its right up the street, Gipson said. My first time playing in it, I wanted to make it memorable.Nate Romine threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons.New Mexicos nation-leading rushing offense had 373 yards against an Air Force defense that was No. 2 nationally against the run and had allowed 401 yards all season coming in.The teams combined for 974 yards -- 443 for New Mexico and 531 for Air Force -- and eight scoring drives of 70-plus yards.But both defenses stiffened in the fourth quarter, when the Lobos had just 9 yards rushing and punted four times. Romine was sacked three times after halftime, and Air Force stalled twice in the final 3 1/2 minutes when a touchdown would have put the Falcons ahead.When you know its going to be a shootout game type like that, youve just got to buckle down and know that weve got to score every drive, said Jacobi Owens, who led Air Forrce with 106 yards rushing.dddddddddddd Sadly at the end, we didnt score every drive.Lamar Jordan had a career-high two touchdown passes for the ground-oriented Lobos. After a 12-yarder to Gipson midway through the second quarter, he floated one to a wide-open Q Drennan for a 45-yard score . It was one of the nine plays of 30-plus yards in the game.Robinette finished with season highs of seven catches for 182 yards, including a 53-yard score .Tyrone Owens had a career-high 126 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Lobos, who got two rushing TDs from Richard McQuarley.STAYING NEUTRALIt was actually the third neutral site game between these schools from neighboring western states. Two of the first three games in the series were played in Denver in 1957 and 1959, just up the road from Air Forces Colorado Springs campus. The high-scoring game came 57 years after Air Force played one of two scoreless ties in the Cotton Bowl game, against TCU.GAME HELMETAfter the game, Gipson handed his helmet to 8-year-old nephew Marcell Gipson Jr., one of several family members in attendance. Thats my biggest fan, Gipson said. Hes been watching me since high school, middle school. He called my name all the time on the sidelines so after the game I had to go show him some love.THE TAKEAWAYNew Mexico: The Lobos bounced back strong from a blowout loss to No. 15 Boise State and might have taken a big step toward a second straight bowl season under fifth-year coach Bob Davie.Air Force: The Falcons might have been thinking about making a run for the Top 25 after improving to 4-0 with a win over Navy, which handed No. 13 Houston its first loss a week later. But consecutive Mountain West losses have changed their outlook.UP NEXTNew Mexico: Home against Louisiana-Monroe next Saturday.Air Force: Home against Hawaii next Saturday.---This story corrects previous versions to show 9 yards rushing in the fourth quarter for New Mexico instead of 10 and 182 yards receiving for Jalen Robinette instead of 169.
