    ST. Steve Atwater Youth Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Two teams with nearly identical records and similar losing streaks meet as the Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Rays play four games at Tropicana Field, with both teams desperately trying to regain positive momentum before the All-Star break.The team, we played our tail off. We battled, Rays starter Chris Archer said Sunday after another late-game meltdown turned into a 5-1 loss to the Tigers to complete a four-game sweep. Its a tough one to lose because we really battled up until the end.The Rays (33-48) have lost 16 of 18 games as they officially enter the second half of the season, and their bullpen has given up runs in 17 of those games. On Sunday, the Rays had a 1-0 lead in the eighth inning, only to see reliever Xavier Cedeno allow two inherited runners to score, with more runs coming in the ninth.Los Angeles (33-49) is coming off a 10-5 loss to Boston, and aside from a ridiculous 21-2 win on Saturday that included 22 hits and an 11-run seventh inning, nothing has been clicking for the Angels, who have dropped 11 of their last 13 games.The Angels will try to shake things up a bit Monday, with 25-year-old right-hander Nick Tropeano called up from Triple-A to start against the Rays. Tropeano is 3-2 with a 3.25 ERA in previous stints this season, and struck out 10 Rays batters in a 3-1 loss in May, giving up seven hits in his outing.Tropeanos callup means Jhoulys Chacin has been demoted to the bullpen after continued ineffectiveness.Im fine with it, Chacin told the teams official site Sunday. I know the last few games I havent done my job. Honestly, I dont feel bad that they sent me to the bullpen. I actually feel good that they have confidence in me to keep me on the team.The Rays counter with left-hander Matt Moore, whose last start was a rare bright spot for Tampa Bay in recent weeks. Moore threw seven innings of shutout baseball in a 4-0 win against the Red Sox on Wednesday. He is 4-5 with a 4.67 ERA, though both of the Angels big bats, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, each has a home run in eight at-bats against him.Rays manager Kevin Cash was optimistic his team could build off a strong start by Archer on Sunday -- zero runs on three hits in 5 2/3 innings with 10 strikeouts. He doesnt have many bullpen arms he trusts, so he will need Moore to last as long as possible before he has to turn to any relievers.Cant help but feel really good about what Chris Archer did today, Cash said. He kicked it in gear and kind of showed the Archer we know hes very capable of being. That was an outstanding effort by Arch. Peyton Manning Womens Jersey . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. Terrell Davis Jersey . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. CHICAGO -- The Blackhawks appeared to be in big trouble when Patrick Kane was whistled for hooking in overtime, handing a power play to the potent Dallas Stars.Then Scott Darling came up with a huge stop, and Marian Hossa finished another big win for Chicago.Darling made a terrific kick save on Patrick Eaves, Hossa scored at 4:31 of overtime and the Blackhawks beat the Dallas Stars 4-3 on Sunday night for their sixth consecutive victory.It took every inch of me to get that one, the 6-foot-6 Darling said.Jonathan Toews had a goal and two assists and Kane scored for the third time in four games, helping the Blackhawks sweep the home-and-home set with the Stars. Kane had a goal and an assist in Saturday nights 3-2 victory in Dallas.Weve been focusing really well on the process of just playing well and improving our overall game, Toews said. A while back, the focus was our penalty kill had to get better. I think weve improved every single game.Kanes second hooking call of the night set Dallas up with a prime opportunity in overtime. But Darling got over to knock away Eaves shot, helping the Blackhawks to their 18th successful kill in their last 19 tries.He made a great save on me, Eaves said. That was the look we wanted and it just didnt go in.Hossa then drove one by a screened Kari Lehtonen for his sixth of the season. Darling, subbing for red-hot starter Corey Crawford, made 32 stops as the Blackhawks improved to 7-1-1 at home.The good thing is this team never quits, Hossa said. Six wins in a row, I think were on the right path.Gemel Smith scored his first two NHL goals for Dallas, including a short-handed breakaway in the second. Tyler Seguin also scored in the opener of a five-game road trip.Those are hard losses, coach Lindy Ruff said. We had our opportunity with the power play in overtime.The Stars had a 2-1 lead in the third when Dallas winger Antoine Roussel was sent off for playing the puck with a broken stick. Then Kane was whistled for hooking at 3:02, making it 4 on 4 for 94 seconds.The Blackhawks made the most of the extra space on the ice, jumping in front with two goals in a span of 56 seconds.First, Hossa made a terrific pass through the legs of Dallas defenseman John Klingberg to a streaking Toews for a beautiful one-timer at 3:39. Afterr Darling denied Jamie Benn with a pad save on a breakaway, Toews was stopped by Lehtonen on the other side, but the puck went right to Artem Anisimov for the rebound goal. Dalton Risner Jersey. Anisimovs team-best eighth goal, extending his career-long point streak to 11 games, looked like the winner until Smith redirected Klingbergs shot past Darling with 1:20 remaining. The tying goal came moments after Dallas pulled Lehtonen for an extra attacker.Lehtonen finished with 29 stops in his first start since Oct. 29. Antti Niemi made 29 saves in Saturday nights loss.Seguins sixth goal at 15:34 of the first put Dallas in front and stopped Chicagos penalty-kill streak at 15 in a row. With Duncan Keith in the box for hooking, Seguin knocked in a rebound for his sixth point in his last four games.Smith made it 2-0 when he beat Darling with a nice backhander at 8:29 of the second.The Blackhawks played with a short bench for the last part of the game after rookie forward Tyler Motte was ridden into the boards by Stars forward Radek Faksa with about seven minutes left in the second. Coach Joel Quenneville said Motte had a lower-body injury and the team will know more on Monday.Game notes Hossas goal was his 1,100th career point. ... Stars C Jason Spezza was scratched with a lower-body injury after he got hurt in the second period Saturday night. ... The Stars placed C Jiri Hudler (illness) on injured reserve and center Justin Dowling was promoted from Texas of the AHL. Dowling was scratched, and D Patrik Nemeth played forward in his first game since Oct. 29. ... Blackhawks LW Andrew Desjardins was a healthy scratch. Desjardins was activated from injured reserve on Saturday, but Quenneville wanted to stay with the same lineup from the victory in Dallas. Desjardins could make his season debut Wednesday at St. Louis. Wed like to get him in here, yeah, Quenneville said. I dont want to say for sure. ... Blackhawks D Trevor van Riemsdyk (right arm injury) skated Sunday.
