#1
PHILADELPHIA -- Roberto Hernandez might want to have his next start switched, as well. Duke Ejiofor Jersey . Hernandez pitched four-hit ball over 7 1-3 innings, outdueling Gio Gonzalez and leading the Philadelphia Phillies past the Washington Nationals 1-0 Sunday. Chase Utley hit an RBI single in the first inning for the only run. Hernandez (2-1) struck out three and walked three. His start was moved up two days because Cole Hamels had the flu, and he retired 14 of 15 batters in the middle innings. "Not a big deal, whatever I had to do," Hernandez said. "I kept the ball down and tried not to overthrow. Im happy. It was a great game for my team and for me, too." Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg likes what Hernandez has added to the Phillies rotation as the fifth starter. "We like his stuff," Sandberg said. "Hes a ground ball pitcher. He has a durable arm. He likes the ball. Hes reliable and he can throw a lot of pitches in the game. "I like the way hes throwing. He solidifies our rotation and is a good complement. Hes funky out there, hes different and I like what hes doing right now." Mike Adams and Antonio Bastardo each got an out in the eighth. Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances. Gonzalez (3-2) allowed four hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two. "It was just a good pitchers duel," Gonzalez said. "I just tried to keep us in the game as long as possible." Philadelphia scored when Jimmy Rollins hit a one-out triple and Utley followed with a single. "That set the tone for our game," Sandberg said. Ben Revere tripled with one out in the Philadelphia third, and Gonzalez didnt give up another hit until Jayson Nixs leadoff single in the eighth. "Gio pitched well and their guy did too," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "It was a good, old-fashioned pitching duel." Gonzalez got some help from his defence during that stretch, as Nate McLouth robbed Rollins of a hit with a diving catch in left field to open the sixth. The slumping McLouth didnt have success with the bat, though, going 0 for 3. He has just four hits in his last 44 at-bats, and has been filling in for the injured Bryce Harper. Denard Span opened the eighth with a single off Hernandez and the Philadelphia starter departed after Kevin Frandsens sacrifice bunt. Adams, who gave up the lead and took the loss in Friday nights series-opening loss to the Nationals, got Jayson Werth to ground out. Bastardo then relieved and walked Adam LaRoche before striking out Anthony Rendon. "Weve had some really key hits over the course of the season," Williams said. "It just wasnt our day." Said Gonzalez, "Were still good and the guys are working hard. Im not worried about this team." The Phillies unsuccessfully challenged a safe call by first-base umpire Fieldin Culbreth in the second. Culbreth ruled that Ian Desmond beat Rollins throw from shortstop to first baseman Ryan Howard. The delay lasted 2 minutes, 42 seconds. NOTES: A former Phillies minor leaguer, Gonzalez dropped to 4-2 in seven career starts against Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park. Gonzalez has a 2.00 ERA in the hitter-friendly ballpark. ... Howard went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts against Gonzalez, dropping him to 0 for 11 with six strikeouts lifetime against the Washington lefty. ...

Hamels is set to start Tuesday. ... The Nationals begin a three-game home series against the Dodgers on Monday night when RHP Jordan Zimmerman (2-1, 3.27) is scheduled to face Los Angeles RHP Zach Greinke (5-0, 2.04). Joe Webb Jersey .

Liriano pitched in and out of trouble in his duel with Josh Beckett, and Ike Davis homered to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 Friday night. http://www.cheaptexansjerseysonline.com/...sey-online . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford.Lyle Taylor and Adebayo Akinfenwa fired AFC Wimbledon into Sky Bet League One for the first time as they beat Plymouth 2-0 in the League Two play-off final at Wembley. Fourteen years after the original Wimbledon was moved to Milton Keynes, Neal Ardleys men booked their place in Englands third highest league, setting up a meeting with rivals MK Dons and completing a remarkable rise from their ninth-tier start in 2002.In a game that produced few chances, it took until the 78th minute for Taylor to make the breakthrough as he slotted the ball past Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick. Adebayo Akinfenwa sealed Wimbledons promotion to League 1 with a penalty in stoppage time With several minutes of injury time added on, Wimbledon were awarded a penalty with almost the final kick of the game which Akinfenwa powered home after a heated discussion with regular penalty taker Callum Kennedy.It was Wimbledon who went closest in the opening exchanges, and it came from a free-kick as the ball was lofted into the back post with Taylor waiting eight yards out, but he couldnt get the touch to take it past McCormick. AFC Wimbledon have been promoted to League 1 after beating Plymouth 2-0 And while Plymouth had seen the better of the ball, it was the Dons who continued to create the better chances and did so twice in quick succession with McCormick again smothering the danger from Taylor before Paul Robinson just hit wide after Tom Elliott headed into his path.The Pilgrims could only muster half-chances during the first 45 minutes as Jake Jervis tried to get a shot away but could only see it blocked by Darius Charles. The defender was there again to keep out a fine cross from Gregg Wylde that was seeking out the quiet Jamille Matt. AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley praised his team’s performance after they secured promotion McCormick was certainly the busier of the two goalkeepers and was called into action again six minutes before the break as Kennedy found some space around 30 yards out and rifled an effort towards goal - but the goalkeeper held strongly. Will Fuller V Jersey. Wimbledon came racing out of the traps in the second half and could have had a fortuitous early goal as Plymouth defender Carl McHugh sent a looping pass back to his goalkeeper that nearly went into the bottom corner, before Elliott twice headed wide as the Dons searched to break the deadlock. Lyle Taylor (right) scores AFC Wimbledons first goal of the game Plymouths best chances of the game came just after the hour mark and both from free-kicks. Graham Carey delivered the set-pieces, seeing his first saved by Kelle Roos before Peter Harley nodded the second into the ground and ultimately into the safe hands of the Dons stopper.Wimbledon made the breakthrough 12 minutes from time and it was semi-final extra-time goalscorer Taylor who got onto the end of a delightful Kennedy cross, flicking it into the bottom corner and sending the Dons fans into raptures, whipping off his shirt in the celebrations. Taylor celebrates scoring his sides first goal of the game It could have been an instant second as Jake Reeves powered down the right flank and squared the ball to Barry Fuller. The captain took on the shot but McCormick was instantly down to make the save with his legs.  Fan favourite Akinfenwa also went close as he rose to meet Taylors cross, but the Plymouth goalkeeper was there to make a fine one-handed save before Taylor chipped a one-on-one shot straight into McCormicks arms. Adebayo Akinfenwa scores from the penalty spot Plymouth had a penalty appeal turned down in the dying minutes as Craig Tanner went down in the box under pressure from Dannie Bulman, but the referee waved away the claims.However, Wimbledon were awarded a spot kick in the dying seconds as Ade Azeez went down in the box, with Akinfenwa stepping up after a heated discussion with Kennedy as to who should take it. Akinfenwa (left) celebrates with team-mate John Meades after scoring Akinfenwa prevailed and it proved to be a good choice as he fired past McCormick in the 11th minute of stoppage time to seal promotion to the third tier.  Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
