he third period on the power

CHICAGO -- Even with three errors, the Houston Astros managed to beat the Chicago White Sox 11-7 Sunday. Jim McMahon Jersey . Matt Dominguez hit a two-run homer and a tiebreaking RBI double, and the Astros tied their season high with 17 hits as they prevented a three-game sweep. Second baseman Jose Altuve made a pair of errors and first baseman Jon Singleton had one, with each infielder allowing a grounder through his legs. "Its part of the game," manager Bo Porter said. "Obviously, Altuve is a guy whos pretty sure-handed, but it happens. But its good to see the rest of the team pick those guys up." Altuve hit a two-run homer for the Astros (41-58), who find themselves 1 1-2 games ahead of last-place Texas in the AL West. "We battled through that game," said Dominguez, had three hits and four RBIs. "It was nice to go out there and get a win like that." Chicago fell behind 4-0 early and tied the score 7-all in the sixth on Alexei Ramirezs RBI double, Jose Abreus run-scoring single and a run-scoring two-out grounder by Dayan Viciedo that went Altuves legs for Houstons second error of the inning. Daniel Webb (5-3) allowed RBI doubles in the seventh to Dominguez and L.J. Hoes, and Marwin Gonzalez followed with a two-run single. Tony Sipp (2-1) pitched 1-1 scoreless innings as Houston stopped a three-game skid. Josh Fields and Chad Qualls got three straight outs each. Houstons Jarred Cosart allowed four runs, seven hits and four walks in five innings. John Danks lasted a season-low 4 1-3 innings, giving up a season-high 12 hits and seven runs. On May 18, he allowed eight runs -- seven earned -- and 10 hits over 4 2-3 innings in an 8-2 loss to the Astros. "Dug us a hole. These guys fought hard to get out of it," Danks said. "For whatever reason, Houston has beat me up this year, so fortunately, were done with that." Hoes filled in for Astros OF George Springer, who was held out because of soreness in his right knee and quadriceps. Springer will continue to receive treatment, and he expects be in the lineup for the opener of a three-game set against the Athletics in Oakland on Tuesday night. "Its fine," Stringer said. "Its just a little something. I just have to make sure Im all right, and well go from there. I can play through it." NOTES: Singleton was inserted in the lineup after 1B Jesus Guzman reported back discomfort in batting practice. ... Abreu extended his hitting streak to 11 games. He had at least one hit in 29 of his last 30 games. ... Manager Robin Ventura was noncommittal about the closer role, which Jake Petricka and Zach Putnam shared in recent weeks. Matt Lindstrom (left ankle surgery) could return next month, while Thompson also was a potential candidate. Prior to the game, Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte, where he converted all six of his save chances. RHP Felipe Paulino was transferred to the 60-day DL. ... Ventura had a rooting interest in the upcoming Hall of Fame induction of Frank Thomas, his former teammate. "He was a dominant player in his era, and that will stand the test of time as far as his place with the White Sox," Ventura said. ... White Sox LHP Chris Sale is to make his first post-All-Star game start versus the Kansas City Royals on Monday night. Akiem Hicks Jersey . His Brazilian opponents said he produced miracles. There is no doubt that Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was the one responsible for spoiling Brazils hopes of another World Cup victory at its home tournament. Pernell McPhee Jersey .com) - Top seed Klara Zakopalova reached the second round, while former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone came up a loser Tuesday at the inaugural Rio Open tennis event.ST. JOHNS, N.L. -- Itll be a long night for IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge. Falling behind three goals and the inability to capitalize on six power-play opportunities proved insurmountable for the St. Johns IceCaps, who fell 4-2 to the Worcester Sharks on Sunday in American Hockey League action. "I hate to lose, I dont sleep well when we lose," McCambridge said. "I thought we played a strong game. (But) we had a hard time in the first two periods putting pucks to the net and having screens and traffic at the net." Travis Oleksuk, Eriah Hayes, Dan DaSilva and Rod Davison scored for the Sharks (23-17-3). Blair Riley and Kael Mouillierat replied for the IceCaps (28-18-3). The Sharks limited the IceCaps on the power play by blocking lanes and taking away quality scoring chances, which was noticeable to IceCaps forward Eric ODell. "They were doing pretty good with blocking shots and we didnt put enough pucks on net, like we usually do," ODell said. "We were moving the puck pretty well, but (didnt) get enough pucks on net." McCambridge thought the power play, which is seventh overall in the AHL, could have had a better chance at scoring if his own club stayed disciplined while on the man advantage. "We had two power plays where we nullified them by taking penalties," McCambridge said. "That doesnt work in our favour." St Johhns beat the Sharks Saturday night, and would have been thrilled to take both games of the two-game mini series entering the AHL All-Star break. Hroniss Grasu Jersey. But winning back-to-back at home hasnt been easy this season for the IceCaps. "We had a pretty good game but we had a couple breakdowns in our defensive zone that cost us," ODell said. "We tend to win one and lose one at home. Its tough to get two wins when teams come here to play us. We have to get better at that. Tonight was an important game and we came up short." The Sharks scored first when a pass from behind the net found Oleksuk out front alone, where he scored into a wide-open net 5:27 into the first period. Davison doubled the lead for the Sharks, hitting home a one-time slap shot past IceCaps goaltender Michael Hutchinson with 5:03 left to play in the second period. Hayes tapped home a rebound 2:50 into the third period on the power play to increase the lead to 3-0. The IceCaps found the score sheet when Riley tipped home a Will ONeill slapshot from the point at the 11:10 mark of the third. Mouillierat pulled the IceCaps to within one by tapping home a rebound off a Carl Klingberg backhander at 14:50, however DaSilva buried an empty netter with 22.2 seconds left to clinch the win for Worcester Troy Grosenick stopped 29 shots for the Sharks, while Hutchinson made 25 saves for St. Johns. 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 ' ' '
