he series opener. BIG PAPI RETURNS Boston
ST. Tyler Lockett Seahawks Jersey . LOUIS -- Robert Griffin III had his moments. The St. Louis Rams, though, have what counts most of all -- a win. Sam Bradford threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns and Danny Amendola caught 15 passes for 160 yards as the Rams rallied for a 31-28 victory over RG3 and the Washington Redskins on Sunday in their home opener. "The dome was rocking and it should be in a couple of weeks when we get back," Amendola said. "It was a good game, it came down to the wire, came down to the last kick." Steven Jackson sat out most of the last three quarters after drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for spiking the ball, but coach Jeff Fisher said it was because Jackson had a groin strain and not because hed lost his cool. "It had nothing to do with the spike," Fisher said. "His groin was real tight and we just didnt want to subject him to it. I didnt think hed be 100 per cent." Jackson said he thought hed be able to re-enter the game but said the groin tightened on him. Griffin led the Redskins (1-1) to a 21-6 lead, but the Rams came back thanks to the pass-catching of Amendola. The receiver tied an NFL record 12 first-half receptions, and caught a 1-yard TD pass to cut the lead to 21-13 at the half. Amendola was out virtually all of last season after dislocating his left elbow making a cut in the opener. "Obviously its nice to have him back out there on the field," Bradford said. "Hes a tremendous player. We knew going into this game that we were going to try to get him the ball." Bradford had second-half scoring passes of 34 yards to Brandon Gibson and 1 yard to Matthew Mulligan. Griffin ran for two touchdowns and passed for a third for Washington (1-1). The Redskins got a final shot after DeAngelo Hall recovered running back Daryl Richardsons fumble at the Washington 37 with 2:40 to go. Josh Morgan was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for throwing the ball Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan after a 7-yard catch on 3rd-and-8 to the Rams 29, leaving the Redskins with 4th-and-16. Shanahan called for a 62-yard field goal attempt, and Billy Cundiff was wide right and well short with 1:13 to go. "It might have been the first down, it was close enough, it was inches," Shanahan said. "You cant lose your poise. You lose your poise, obviously good things dont happen." Shanahan thought Cundiff had a shot, reasoning "he kicks the ball out of the end zone" on kickoffs form the 35. Griffin was disappointed, but he understood. "I thought we were going for it," Griffin said. "But in a dome, 62 (yards) is far, but its not that far. I was on a knee and I hoped that it would go through." The Rams took the lead on Bradfords TD pass to Mulligan on the first play of the fourth quarter, and Richardson ran it in on a 2-point conversion for a 24-21 lead. Mulligan had partially blocked Sav Roccas punt to give the Rams the ball at the Washington 24 four plays earlier. Griffin, who looked like a veteran in his NFL debut last week in leading the Redskins to a win over New Orleans, scored on runs of 5 and 7 yards. He also threw a 68-yard touchdown pass to Leonard Hankerson. Jackson spiked the ball after getting ruled short of the goal line on a third-down carry from the 1. It came a play after the Rams successfully challenged a lost fumble call on Jackson. After that, the franchises career leading rusher left, and spent most of the rest of the game by himself on the sideline with his helmet in hand. Amendola had a rough start, fumbling after a 13-yard catch on the Rams first snap, with Josh Wilson returning it 30 yards for his fifth career defensive touchdown. He recovered nicely, matching the first-half NFL record set by the Colts Reggie Wayne in 2007, while tying his career best game total in the process and setting a personal game-best with 133 yards receiving. The Redskins lost defensive end Adam Carriker and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo to injuries early in the first quarter, while Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold was helped off with a right knee injury. Orakpo and Saffold were hurt on the same play. Orakpo stripped Bradford and Saffold recovered the fumble and carried it 7 yards, but crumpled to the turf on the tackle. NOTES: The game was chippy throughout with several skirmishes, especially in the first half with Redskins LB London Fletcher called for a personal foul on a sideline hit on Amendola and the Rams Eugene Sims whistled for hitting Griffin, who appeared to be turning up the field and not running out of bounds. ... Amendola tied the franchise single-game record shared by Isaac Bruce and Flipper Anderson. ... Bradford passed for 300 or more yards for the fourth time in his career and threw for three TDs for the second time. ... Rams rookie punter Johnny Hekker averaged 54.3 yards on three attempts. Frank Clark Youth Jersey . -- Stacy Lewis matched playing partner Lydia Ko with birdies on Nos. Marshawn Lynch Seahawks Jersey . On Tuesday, they did it again. Roy Hibbert scored 22 points and Lance Stephenson fell just short of his fourth triple double this season, helping the Pacers hold off Torontos late charge for an 86-79 victory that allowed them to keep the NBAs best record.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - It might be way too early to call the Pittsburgh Pirates a team of destiny. But after what manager Clint Hurdle witnessed Thursday night, he had to stop and wonder. "Sometimes, youre just meant to win," he said. The Pirates got a lucky break when Boston pinch-runner Jemile Weeks was hit by a batted ball in the ninth inning, beating the Red Sox 3-2 to increase their lead in the NL playoff race. The Pirates won their fourth in a row. They now lead Milwaukee by 3 1/2 games for the second wild-card spot, and host the Brewers in a three-game series beginning Friday night. Down 3-2, the Red Sox put runners at the corners with no outs in the ninth against Mark Melancon. Will Middlebrooks then hit a chopper down the line and ball struck the back of Weeks left leg as he made a dive back to third. Weeks was called out, and Melancon retired the last two batters for his 30th save in 34 opportunities. "Ive never seen that one before," Hurdle said. Weeks said there was nothing he could have done to avoid being hit by the ball. "There was a lot involved," he said. "The play was, if its not a double-play ball, make sure you get back. It wasnt a double-play ball, got back, had to avoid getting tagged or creating a double-play situation. Thats what I did and the ball hit me on the way back." Gerrit Cole (10-5) allowed two runs in seven-plus innings, striking out seven and walking none. He won his season-best third straight start. The second-year righty improved 7-1 in nine career September starts. "Pitching like games like this is fun," Cole said. "Every game Ive pitched (in Septembeer) has been do-or-die. Kevin Norwood Youth Jersey. You want the ball in that situation. You want to do well." Starling Marte hit his 13th homer, connecting off Brandon Workman (1-10) in the fifth for a 3-1 lead. Workman lost his 10th straight decision. Boston had closed to 3-2 in the eighth on Xander Bogaerts sacrifice fly, but lost for the eighth time in its last 11 games. Cole was lifted after giving up back-to-back singles to Christian Vazquez and Garin Cecchini to start the inning. TRAINERS ROOM Red Sox: INF-OF Brock Holt, who has not played since Sept. 5 because of a concussion, was cleared to resume baseball activities Thursday after being examined by Pittsburgh-based head trauma specialist Micky Collins. Boston is hopeful Holt can play in a few games before the season ends Sept. 28. If not, he will go for the Florida Instructional League camp in Fort Myers to get some game action. Pirates: SS Jordy Mercer was back in the lineup after missing two games with a lower back strain and went 1 for 3 with a double. UP NEXT Red Sox: RHP Allen Webster (4-3, 6.02) will start Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Baltimore, facing RHP Kevin Gausman (7-7, 3.57). Pirates: LHP Jeff Locke (7-5, 3.66) will face the Brewers Yovani Gallardo (8-10, 3.59) in the series opener. BIG PAPI RETURNS Boston designated hitter David Ortiz returned to the team and started at first base after missing the first two games of the series because of a family emergency. Ortiz was forced to play in the field because the DH rule is not in effect in interleague games at NL parks. He went 0 for 4 and struck out twice. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
