    CHICAGO -- David Ross got fired up when Cubs manager Joe Maddon walked to the mound with two out in the seventh inning, ready to argue for Jon Lester to stay in the game. China Jerseys .Maddon and Lester had a different plan.Joe looked at him and said `Have you ever been a part of where the catcher gets taken out of the game before the pitcher? Lester said, describing the scene with a big grin. You can just see him, its like the kid at the candy store when you tell him he can pick out whatever he wants.It was just like the disbelief in his face and slams his mask back over his face and all he can say is `I love you guys. I love you guys. I love you guys.Ross then walked off to another standing ovation from a raucous crowd of 40,859 at Wrigley Field, part of a heartwarming Sunday night for the backup catcher in his last season. He also hit his 10th homer and teamed with Lester for another scoreless performance, helping the Cubs to a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.It was an amazing night, Ross said.Ben Zobrist had three hits and scored two runs as Chicago finished with a major league-best 57-24 home record. Its the most home wins for the Cubs since they went 58-19 at the West Side Grounds in 1910.The Cardinals lost for the third time in four games, wasting a chance to improve their playoff positioning. They remain a half-game back of San Francisco for the second NL wild card after the Giants lost 4-3 at San Diego earlier in the day.I think were in a good position right now, pitcher Carlos Martinez said through a translator. I also think we have a great shot at winning the World Series.Ross, Lesters regular catcher, was greeted with a long standing ovation when he came to the plate in the second inning. St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina walked halfway to the mound, forcing the unassuming Ross to take in the moment, and he took off his batting helmet to acknowledge the cheering crowd.Ross then struck out, but he got another chance in the fifth and drove Martinezs second pitch over the wall in left for 1-0 lead. Ross clapped his hands as he rounded first on his 10th homer and the cheers continued after he reached the dugout, prompting a curtain call.It was just fitting that David would hit a home run, isnt it? Maddon said. I mean it had to have happened tonight.Lester (19-4), one of the top candidates for the NL Cy Young Award, struck out seven in 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander allowed three hits and walked one while improving to 10-0 with 1.34 ERA in his last 13 starts.It was Lesters idea to pull Ross in the middle of an inning.Hes like a brother to me and for him to give me that was pretty cool, Ross said.The Cardinals pulled within one on Jhonny Peraltas two-out RBI single in the eighth, but Brandon Moss flied to center with runners on the corners. Willson Contreras responded with an RBI single in the bottom half and Aroldis Chapman worked the ninth for his 16th save with the NL Central champions and No. 36 on the year.Martinez (15-9), pitching with a heavy heart after the death of Miami pitcher Jose Fernandez in a boating accident, allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked four.He had lots of juice, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Its probably the hardest sinker Ive ever seen him throw. A couple of those were 97 (mph). He was locked in. He wanted it bad today, and he was good enough for us to win.RESTING AND MOURNINGSt. Louis shortstop Aledmys Diaz, who is dealing with some arm fatigue, got the day off. Diaz also was a childhood friend of Fernandez.Matheny said he would have scratched Diaz had he been in the lineup. Diaz declined an interview request through a team spokeswoman.Hes pretty stoic. You see how he goes about his business, Matheny said. Thats kind of how hes handling this right now. He was a close, close friend, so hes trying to figure out how to mourn for his friend right now and take all the information in. None of that is easy.UP NEXTCardinals: LHP Jaime Garcia (10-12, 4.59 ERA) faces Cincinnati RHP Tim Adleman (2-4, 4.06 ERA) on Monday night in the opener of a seven-game homestand.

I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. England 284 for 4 (Moeen 120*, Root 88, Bairstow 49, Jadeja 3-73) v India Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsMoeen Alis fifth Test century steered England past a shaky start and moved them to a solid 284 for 4 at the end of day one in Chennai. Moeen added 146 for the third wicket with Joe Root to rescue England after they had slumped to 21 for 2, and then put on 86 with Jonny Bairstow to strengthen their position, before the wicket of Bairstow brought India their only success of the final session. On a pitch that offered plenty of turn but only slow turn, Ravindra Jadejas extra pace brought him three wickets while the other two spinners went wicketless.The wicket of Root half an hour before tea seemed to give India a bit of an opening but Bairstow and Moeen disabused them of any such notion, counterattacking at the start of the final session. Bairstow led the way, slog-sweeping the spinners at every opportunity, hitting Jadeja and Ashwin for sixes in successive overs, and looked in sizzling form before Jadeja did him in one short of a half-century, pulling his pace back cleverly to invite an uppish drive to short-extra cover.The dismissal came in the 81st over, and India waited until the 86th to take the second new ball. By that time, Moeen had moved to his hundred. He went from 95 to 99 with the shot of his innings, skipping down the track to hit Amit Mishra inside-out, against the turn, through the covers, and reached the landmark next ball with a nudged single into the off side. He continued playing his shots against the new ball, driving Ishant Sharma for successive fours on the up, both in the air, once to the right of point, once to the right of cover.Those two shots were emblematic of Moeens innings, which contained periods of unease and vulnerability, notably at the start, but also some gorgeous strokeplay, particularly through the off side.He began scratchily, and looked particularly insecure before lunch, when Ashwin beat his outside edge repeatedly, scrambling his footwork with his changes of pace, trajectory and angle. Before he got off the mark, he enjoyed a life when he flicked Jadeja uppishly and through the hands of KL Rahul, who mistimed his jump at midwicket. He survived a couple of reviews aas well, when Jadeja and Mishra beat his inside edge and hit him on the front pad. China NFL Jerseys. The on-field umpire gave him out both times: first, when he was on 20, replays showed the ball hitting his pad outside the line of off stump; on the second occasion, when he was on 83, the ball was shown to strike him in line but ball-tracking returned an umpires call verdict.On 7 off 44 balls at lunch, Moeen grew in confidence after the break, using the sweep to hit fours off Ashwin and Jadeja and going after Amit Mishra when he returned for his second spell, unafraid to use his feet and hit him against the turn.Mishra, who came back into the side because Jayant Yadav was out with a hamstring niggle, only bowled seven overs before tea and went for 30, too often straying from a good length. The pitch at the MA Chidambaram Stadium offered generous turn, but it was slow turn, accentuating Mishras lack of zip off the pitch.Root fell half an hour from tea, trying to sweep Jadeja and getting a thin inside edge - revealed by Ultra Edge, after India reviewed the on-field not-out decision - through to the wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel. That shot apart, the sweep was a productive stroke for Root, who made his 11th 50-plus score in 11 Tests against India. He was judicious in choosing the right line to sweep, avoiding it against stump-to-stump deliveries, but showed a dazzling ability to play the shot against a wide range of lengths. He paddled a near half-volley from R Ashwin from outside off stump towards fine leg, and held his shape, without getting down fully on his back knee, to stay on top of the bounce and flat-bat a back-of-a-length ball from Jadeja through midwicket. In all, the sweep and the slog-sweep fetched him 29 runs off 13 balls, including five fours.There were a couple of other excellent shots too, including a deft dab to the third man boundary off an Umesh Yadav yorker and a skip down the pitch to hit R Ashwin over the top when he brought mid-on up. Not for the first time in the series, he batted with a calm fluency in conditions where his team-mates looked uncertain.More to follow... Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
