PITTSBURGH, Pa. MLB Jerseys China . - Charlie Morton worked into the sixth inning to snap a lengthy losing streak and the Pittsburgh Pirates
beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Friday night. Morton (1-6) allowed one run
on five hits in 5 2-3 workmanlike innings for his first victory since last
September. Pedro Alvarez hit his ninth home run of the season after being
dropped from fourth to sixth in the lineup. Ike Davis, who replaced Alvarez as
the cleanup hitter, went 2 for 4 with two runs scored. Jason Grilli picked up
his first save since April 14 in his return from the disabled list. The Pirates
have won three straight and four of five. Jordan Zimmerman (3-2) laboured
through six innings to lose for the first time in over a month. Denard Span had
two of Washingtons eight hits. The Nationals left 11 runners on base while
losing their third straight. Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys . MacIntyre stopped 49 shots and the Marlies defeated the Texas Stars 5-1 in Game 1 of the
American Hockey Leagues Western Conference final. "I felt in control, so that
was nice," MacIntyre said. Wholesale MLB Jerseys . But the young forward is more than willing to shed a little blood if thats what it takes to make the
team this season. "It caught me pretty good, dazed me for that shift, but I
didnt want to be off the ice for too long," he said after practice, his lip
still bleeding a little despite the plastic stitches holding it together.
ORLANDO, Fla. -- At this point in the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers are hoping
to make one last run at the playoffs and the Orlando Magic are looking for luck
in the NBA draft lottery. Both improved their chances of reaching those goals
Wednesday night as the Cavaliers beat the Magic 119-98 behind 26 points from
Dion Waiters and 20 each from Spencer Hawes and Tristan Thompson. The easy win
moved the Cavaliers within two games of New York and Atlanta for the eighth and
final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Cavs play at Atlanta Friday
night. "This was a big game for us, but every game is big because of the
position weve put ourselves in," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "There is
nothing tricky that we have to do. We just have to out and play hard and give
ourselves a chance." Waiters shot 10 for 15 from the field, including 3 for 3 on
3-pointers. "Weve still got a chance, we just need to take full advantage of
it," he said. "We came in knowing we should get a win, but every game is hard.
We have no choice at this point. We control our own destiny. Everybody knows
what is at stake. We just have to stay focused." It helped the Cavaliers that
All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving returned with a thump in his step after
missing the last eight games with a torn bicep muscle. Irving had 17 points,
eight assists and six rebounds in a seemless transition from the bench to the
court. "Kyrie came in and got right in step with us," Brown said. "He helped us
get the ball up the floor quickly and get into our attack. He gave us another
weapon with a very high skill level." The Magic had little to be satisfied with
other than solidifying their lottery spot with the third-worst record in the
NBA. The Magic gave up 70 points in the first half, the best half all season for
Cleveland and the most points Orlando has allowed in a half this year. "There is
going to be a game in the course of the year where you just dont have it and
when its coupled with a team like the Cavs who had it ... it just wasnt a good
mix," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. "Some days, its just not your day." The
Magic placed only one starter, Maurice Harkless, in douuble figures and he had
10 points. Cheap MLB Jerseys. Rookie Victor Oladipo led Orlando with 16 points, Doron Lamb had 14, Tobias Harris 11 and ETwaun Moore 10,
all off the bench. "Terrible, terrible game," Harris said. "Its not how we
wanted to play and that shows us that there is no effort." Every Cleveland
player in uniform scored as the Cavs shot 60.5 per cent in the first half and
57.7 per cent for the game in rolling over a defenceless Magic team that lost
its second straight. Cleveland was 9 for 18 from beyond the 3-point line, most
of them wide-open looks as Orlando struggled with defensive rotations the entire
game. Cleveland had four of the five starters already in double figures by
halftime. Hawes was 6 for 8 in the first two periods, including 4 for 5 on
3-pointers on his way to 18 points. Thompson had 14, Irving 13 and Waiters 10 as
the Cavaliers starters combined to hit 24 of 33 shots (72.7 per cent) in the
first two quarters. Deng was the only starter not in double figures, but still
shot 4 for 5. The Magic, by contrast, didnt have a player score more than six
points in the first half. Orlando had 11 turnovers that Cleveland turned into 16
points. The Magic trailed 49-42 after Oladipos 3-pointer with 6:11 left in the
second quarter, but got only one field goal the rest of the half and were
outscored 21-6 as Cleveland rolled to a 70-47 halftime lead. The closest Orlando
got in the second half was 17 when Arron Afflalos 3 with 4:11 left in the third
quarter made it 82-65. Afflalo, the Magics leading scorer this season, finished
with seven points. Cleveland responded with a 10-0 run that started with a
floater in the lane by Jack and ended with two free throws by Thompson to make
it 92-65. Cleveland led by as many 28 points and cruised through the fourth
quarter with little effort. NOTES: Cavs C Anderson Varajeo sat out the game with
a sore shoulder. ... Magic C Nikola Vucevic, who had three straight games
scoring 20-plus points for the first time all season coming into the game,
scored only seven. ... Cleveland has beaten Orlando seven straight times. ...
The Magic are 1-18 this season when teams shoot over 50 per cent. Cleveland shot
57.7 per cent in the game. Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
