BALTIMORE -- Two out of three aint bad -- unless youre looking to make some headway in the crowded AL playoff race.The Baltimore Orioles sputtered in the clutch Sunday, and the resulting 5-2 loss to the New York Yankees ruined their bid for a three-game sweep.Coming off an 8-0 win on Friday night and a 2-0 victory Saturday, the Orioles missed a chance to sustain the momentum before hitting the road.Were trying to win games. You beat them twice and youre trying to beat them a third time, manager Buck Showalter said. We just didnt have much offensively.The Orioles stranded nine and went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position.After falling behind 4-0 in the fourth inning, Baltimore closed to 4-2 before wasting an opportunity to complete the comeback in the fifth.Adam Jones led off with a single and scored on a double by Pedro Alvarez. Luis Severino (2-8) replaced starter Michael Pineda and struck out Manny Machado before issuing two straight walks to load the bases. Steve Pearce struck out and Matt Wieters chopped a grounder to second base to end the threat.Baltimore got only one more hit the rest of the way.Before this series, the Orioles had lost five of seven. So while failing to complete the sweep wasnt ideal, at least Baltimore could take consolation in being in position to do so.I mean, Im trying to keep a positive mind frame, first baseman Chris Davis said. We won the series and well move forward.Baltimore is tied with Detroit for the second AL wild-card slot, but the loss dropped the Orioles three games out of first place in the AL East.After being shut out three consecutive times by the Orioles over a seven-day span, the Yankees promptly put an end to the streak with a three-run first inning.Wade Miley (8-12) walked the first two batters and struck out the next two before Chase Headley hit an RBI single. A wild pitch and a two-run single by Austin Romine followed.Headley singled home a run in the fourth, and Pearce hit a run-scoring grounder in the bottom half.Brett Gardner made it 5-2 with a sacrifice fly in the ninth.The victory was huge for the Yankees, who came to town after winning four straight series.You cant afford to lose three in a row to these guys, manager Joe Girardi said. We know they play really well in this building. We lost a tough one (Saturday) night. To be able to bounce back is important. It keeps us alive.Indeed, the young, retooled Yankees remain a part of the playoff picture, trailing Baltimore and Detroit by 3 1/2 games for the final wild card.Severino (2-8) pitched two strong innings of relief and Dellin Betances, the fifth New York reliever, got four outs for his eighth save.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: SS Didi Gregorius was held out of the starting lineup after absorbing some bumps and bruises during the series. His arm is sore where hes been hit the past few days, Girardi said. . 1B Mark Teixeira doesnt usually play in day games after playing the previous night, and thus was given Sunday off. Commenting on the ice pack Teixeira had on his neck before the game, Girardi said, He deals with his neck, he deals with his knee. Its not what you want, but its the reality.Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (shoulder) threw off a mound and remains on course to come off the disabled list on Sept. 11.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (11-4, 3.12 ERA) opens a three-game series against visiting Toronto on Monday. New York is 3-9 against the Blue Jays this season, losing all four series.Orioles: RHP Ubaldo Jimenez (5-11, 6.46) starts Monday in the opener of a three-game series at Tampa Bay. Baltimore is 29-37 on the road, 3-3 at Tampa Bay.Air Max 95 UK Outlet .com) - Manchester City midfielder David Silva is expected to miss the next four weeks because of a calf problem.

Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. http://www.airmax95cheapuk.com/ . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Wholesale Air Max 95 UK Shoes . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. Wholesale Nike Shoes UK . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside.AVONDALE, Ariz. -- The Carl Edwards hauler sits 10th among the haulers in the Sprint Cup garage area, where they line up by organization based on owner points.With Joe Gibbs Racing having the third-best spot in owner points (behind Hendrick and Penske) and Edwards last among the JGR drivers in points, it would appear as if this team is among those in the dogfight for a spot in the championship.But thanks to Edwards win Sunday at Texas, he doesnt have to worry about his finish this weekend. Its the same for Jimmie Johnson, who won at Martinsville.When those two drivers talk about this weekend, they dont mind looking ahead. They are among the four drivers who will advance out of the semifinal round and be eligible for the championship Nov. 20 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Johnson can barely remember -- or doesnt choose to remember -- his 11th-place run at Phoenix in March. The Chase for the Sprint Cup makes its next stop Sunday in Phoenix.I know I ran OK, but even that is a little vague because I jumped right over my Phoenix prep and have been focused on Homestead, Johnson readily admitted earlier this week.The same could be said for Edwards, who got out of his race-winning car at Texas and minutes later was talking to crew chief Dave Rogers about Homestead.Dave was actually trying to shut me up, Edwards said. I started talking about Homestead already.Everything we do now will be geared to making sure that that Homestead weekend, we do it perfectly. I relish the opportunity to go focus for ... 14 days on trying to give a championship effort.While Edwards celebrated, he has three teammates who enter Homestead without a guarantee they will advance. Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin are among the six drivers vying for the two remaining spots.Obviously, theyre a little more relaxed, I would assume, this weekend in a way, Kenseth said. But yet Im sure theyre also thinking ahead to Homestead. Im sure theyre thinking about this weekend to try to get their car running as good as they can to try to help two more cars get in there from the organization.I dont know that its a lot different.Edwards wont have to worry about anything thhis weekend.dddddddddddd He wont have to play over what happened in March at Phoenix, where he probably could have won if he had raced a little rougher on the final lap and slammed doors a little harder with Kevin Harvick.Its one last week to just go have some fun, hopefully get another trophy and prepare for Homestead, Edwards said. Texas was the biggest win of our season, and coming off of that we are really looking forward to going to Phoenix and just focus on getting another win.Phoenix is a special track for me. Its the first place I ever raced on pavement. [Ive had a] lot of great runs there and a lot of wins [and a] very close race in the spring. That last lap was a blast.Johnson will try to keep the pressure on his team only in hopes that they continue to feel a sense of having to perform under pressure. Thats a noble goal, but no one can pretend to mimic the pressure of Homestead when the finish at Phoenix doesnt matter.Still, Johnson hopes his team takes a businesslike approach even knowing they have a clean slate next week.We could all use practice with pressure because Homestead will bring a lot of pressure, Johnson said. So pressure is good for us. We will be racing for every point we can race for, even if we are locked in. We will race our race and let everyone else race theirs.The difference between Johnson and Edwards comes in the number of championships they have won. Johnson has six and goes for his seventh next week. Edwards has none, losing by the closest of margins in 2011 when Tony Stewart beat him on a tiebreaker by winning at Homestead, with Edwards finishing second.Its not just going there like we did in 2011 to race against one guy in championship form -- were going to go there and race against three guys, one of which is a six-time champion [at the] top of his game, Edwards said. I know whoever else is in there is going to be tough as nails.Its cool. If were able to win that, stand ... with that championship trophy, were going to have earned it. Thats as good as it gets.
