PITTSBURGH -- The Miami Marlins have some ground to make up if they are to make it to the post-season for the first time since 2003. Daimion Stafford Jersey . However, comeback wins like they had Tuesday night give the Marlins hope as Adeiny Hechavarria had two hits and drove in a run during a decisive five-run rally in the eighth inning to help the Miami Marlins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3. The Marlins are 5 1/2 games behind the first-place Washington Nationals in the National League East and the same amount out of the wild card race. "Every game from here on out is important," Marlins left-hander Brad Hand said. "Were going to try to win every game we can in August and September and hope that keeps us playing into October." Hechavarrias RBI single made it 4-2 after Marcell Ozuna and Jarrod Saltalamacchia drew bases-loaded walks from Justin Wilson to force home the tying and go-ahead runs. Christian Yelich capped the inning with a run-scoring double. That came after Gregory Polanco put the Pirates ahead 2-1 in the seventh with a run-scoring single. "Were not necessarily known for drawing walks," said Marlins manager Mike Redmond, though his team is fourth in the NL in that category. "We had a lot of really good at bats that inning." Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones also had two hits for Miami. Ozuna drove in two runs as he also had an RBI double in the fourth to tie the game at 1-1. Pittsburghs Jordy Mercer had two hits, including a run-scoring double in the third inning. A.J. Ramos (5-0) got two outs in the seventh inning for the win. Jared Hughes (6-3) took the loss, though he could have gotten out of the eighth without allowing a run if not for third baseman Josh Harrison booting a potential double play grounder with one out. Hughes put himself in trouble by walking Stanton to start the inning. "Ive got to get ahead in the count there," Hughes said. "Walking the tying run with no one on base is going to come back to get you and it did today."" The Marlins had scored just 11 runs in losing four of their previous five games and a total of 13 runs while losing six straight games at Pittsburgh. Hand did not pitch at least seven full innings for the first time in four starts but had a solid 6 1/3-inning outing. The left-hander allowed two runs and six hits while walking one and striking out two. Hand has a 2.72 ERA in seven starts since being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans. Pittsburgh starter Charlie Morton gave up only one run and six hits in seven innings with four walks and four strikeouts.

I think it will all work together as long as we continue to do the things that were coached to do.The cohesion and communication improved as the season went on.The Patriots (12-4) allowed 10 sacks in the first four games, going 2-2. They finally settled on a starting line in the fifth game and allowed just 16 sacks in the final 12 games with a 10-2 record.Thats 26 total sacks, 14 fewer than the Patriots allowed last season.The big thing is communication and working together, said Dan Connolly, the teams most veteran lineman who started the first three games at centre before settling in at Mankins position. Were kind of the team within the team. The five of us have got to work together in our blocking combinations.That togetherness will be tested Saturday against one of the NFLs most aggressive pass rushing teams.The Ravens (11-6) were tied for second with 49 sacks. A bunch of those came with just three or four pass rushers.Were blessed with a number of guys that can really rush the passer, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. It gives you one extra guy in coverage. So the fewer guys you can send to get pressure on the quarterback, the better off youre going to be.At least admitted plodder Brady has shown a greater tendency to scramble this season.He had his longest run since 2007 in the 14th ggame, a 41-13 victory over Miami. James Conner Jersey. rady ran 17 yards for a first down before taking a hard hit that knocked him out of bounds at the Dolphins 3-yard line. On the next play, the Patriots scored on LeGarrette Blounts 3-yard run for a 21-13 lead on the first possession of the third quarter.Against the Ravens, Brady will try to avoid Elvis Dumervil, who had 17 sacks, Terrell Suggs, who had 12, and the rest of their pass rushers.They do a great job getting after the quarterback, Brady said. They blitz a decent amount of times, so were going to need to be able to move around in the pocket and try to buy ourselves a little more time. All of these guys can still run me down. It doesnt matter. Im still slower than all of those guys.The emergence of rookie centre Bryan Stork was critical to the lines improvement. Hes been helped by having former centres Connolly and Ryan Wendell on either side of him.Connolly said Stork is growing up and becoming a good professional.Weve got to let him just run the show. Hes the centre. Hes got to do those sorts of things, Connolly said. But it always helps to have guys next to you that know whats going on.When Connolly missed a Jets game with a knee injury, Brady was sacked four times. Connolly and right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back injury) missed the last game and the Patriots allowed four sacks, three against backup Jimmy Garoppolo.Both linemen might have played in the finale had the Patriots not clinched the AFCs top seed before that 17-9 loss to Buffalo.Brady will need all five regulars against the Ravens.All of those guys are tied together. That job is tough to do, Brady said. Theyve got the best athletes, maybe in the world, sitting on the other side trying to go kill the quarterback and theyve got to do everything they can to defend and not hold.And keep Brady safe.Its a lot of pressure on us, Connolly said. Its our job to make sure Tom stays upright, so thats what were going to try to do this week.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
