BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox were charging out of the dugout before the winning run reached home plate. [url=http://www.patriotsauthenticshop.com/Patriots-Trey-Flowers-Draft-Jersey/]Trey Flowers Jersey[/url] . After a 10-game skid, winning sure feels good. Atlantas third error in the last two innings allowed Jackie Bradley Jr. to score from second as the Red Sox rallied to beat Atlanta 4-3 on Thursday night for their fourth straight win. "They contributed with some balls in play on the defensive side of things," Boston manager John Farrell said. "Just a good comeback win overall." Boston trailed 3-1 before tying it with a pair of runs in the eighth then won it in the ninth. Bradley and Brock Holt drew back-to-back walks off closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1). Xander Bogaerts followed with a hard grounder to Chris Johnson at third base for an infield single. Johnson stopped it and made a strong throw but La Stella missed the catch with Holt bearing down. Bradley hadnt even scored yet when the Red Sox began rushing out of the dugout. "The arrows pointing in the right direction," Bradley said. Bogaerts was credited with a single and the error was initially charged to Johnson. The official scoring on the play was changed later and the error charged to La Stella. The change mattered little to the Braves, who had no errors before taking a 3-1 lead into the eighth. "You play this game long enough, things like that are going to happen," said centre fielder B.J. Upton, who had one of two errors for the Braves in the eighth. "Well get by it and be ready to play tomorrow." Koji Uehara (1-1) got the win after eight solid innings by starter Jake Peavy for the Red Sox, who completed a four-game sweep in the home-and-home series with the Braves. "Its just unfortunate. I felt like we were making good pitches at the end and the balls were just dropping in," Atlanta starter Mike Minor said. "Theyre a tough team. I feel like every four games we played them, they battled back every time. Its kind of expected out of them to battle back." Minor also pitched well, holding Boston to one run on seven hits in seven innings. Minor didnt walk a batter and struck out three. Jason Heyward homered and Freddie Freeman drove in a run and scored once for the Braves, who lost their fourth straight and fifth in six games. Atlanta led 3-1 when Holt led off the eighth with a bloop single to left off reliever David Carpenter. He went to second when left fielder Justin Upton took his eye off the ball and it bounced past him. Bogaerts followed with an RBI single and Dustin Pedroia reached on a slow roller up the middle that was called a hit. A.J. Pierzynski followed with another single to centre that B.J. Upton let get by him for the second error of the inning, allowing Bogaerts to score and tie it at 3-all. "I had it lined up right in the middle of my body and went to field it. The grass just kind of took it away from me," B.J. Upton said. Atlanta had just gone up 3-1 with a run in the top of the eighth. B.J. Upton led off with a single to left and scored when Freeman followed with a double off the wall in left-centre. Heywards homer with two outs in the third gave Atlanta a 1-0 lead. The Braves added a run in the fourth when Freeman led off with a walk, advanced to second on a balk and scored on Evan Gattis single. Boston cut the lead to 2-1 with a run in the fifth when David Ross doubled and scored on a two-out double by Holt. Peavy allowed three runs on eight hits in eight innings. He struck out four and walked one. NOTES: Boston returns to American League play Friday when Tampa Bay visits Friday with LHP David Price (4-4) facing Boston righty Brandon Workman (0-0). ...

[url=http://www.patriotsauthenticshop.com/Patriots-Tedy-Bruschi-Draft-Jersey/]http://www.patriotsauthenticshop.com/Patriots-Tedy-Bruschi-Draft-Jersey/[/url] . -- League scoring leader Anthony Mantha had two goals and two assists to lead the Val-dOr Foreurs over the Blainville-Boisbriand Phoenix 6-3 on Wednesay in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play on Wednesday. A rematch of last springs Eastern Conference final is on tap Saturday, as the Montreal Canadiens welcome the New York Rangers to the Bell Centre. You can listen to the game on TSN Radio 690 Montreal with coverage beginning at 6pm et. The Rangers ousted Montreal in six games for last seasons conference title before losing to the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Final. It marked New Yorks first trip to the Cup Finals since winning it all in 1994, while the Habs were denied a shot at playing on hockeys stage for the first time since their last championship in 93. Both the Blueshirts and Canadiens are teams built on speed, but New York boasts size as well as quickness. Montreal and New York also have two of games best goaltenders in Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist. Price will face the Rangers for the first time since Game 1 of the conference finals. Montreals No. 1 goaltender was knocked out of the playoffs in that contest after suffering a knee injury when New York forward Chris Kreider crashed into him at the end of a breakaway. Although Kreider has insisted time and again the collision was unintentional, the winger will almost certainly receive an icy reception from Canadiens fans tonight. Not including that fateful playoff game, Price is 8-5-1 with a 2.06 goals against average in his career against the Rangers. Lundqvist, who expects to start for New York, is 13-11-2 with a 2.84 GAA in 27 regular-season appearances versus Montreal. The Canadiens enter the showdown with a 6-1-0 record and will shoot for a fourth consecutive victory on Saturday. Montreal is 3-0 so far on a four-game homestand and last played on Tuesday when it notched a 2-1 overtime win against Detroit. David Desharnais scored 56 seconds into the extra session to lift the Habs to victory over the Red Wings. After P.K. Subban fired a shot from above the left circle, Max Pacioretty took the rebound and had his wrister denied by Jimmy Howard. Desharnais gathered the loose puck at the left side of the net and swatted a backhander over a falling Howard for the game-winner. Alex Galchenyuk scored the game-tying goal with 3:09 to play in the third period and Price made 27 saves for the win. We have great character on this team, Galchenyuk said. In the third, we started going to the net andd it paid off for us. [url=http://www.patriotsauthenticshop.com/Patriots-Laadrian-Waddle-Draft-Jersey/]LaAdrian Waddle Jersey[/url]. . Montreal has won nine of its last 10 home games against the Rangers in the regular season and also claimed five of the past six encounters prior to last springs playoff meeting. The Rangers also enter Saturday with a shot at winning their fourth consecutive game. New York also posted an OT win in its last game, posting a 4-3 comeback win Tuesday night in New Jersey. New York trailed the Devils 3-1 early in the third period before rallying for the win. Kevin Kleins goal with 2:18 remaining in OT capped the furious comeback at Prudential Center. The Rangers forcing overtime on goals by Chris Mueller and Rick Nash and Lundqvist also helped bring on the extra session with a 28-save effort that included several key stops late in regulation. I am just really happy the way we came back, Lundqvist said. When they scored that third one, and the way their power play was playing, it was a tough, but we responded in a big way. It was a big two points for us. Kreider set up Kleins game-winner and scored earlier for New York, while Mueller also chipped in an assist in the Rangers triumph. New Yorks next game is against Minnesota on Monday when the Blueshirts kick off a four-game homestand. Montreal will begin a three-game road trip the same night in Edmonton. Also, the Canadiens will join the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs in coordinated pregame ceremonies prior to the start of their respective home games tonight. The teams will be honoring Canadian soldiers who were killed earlier this week. On Wednesday, a gunman shot and killed a Canadian solider standing guard at the National War Memorial, then entered Parliament before being shot to death. On Monday, a solider was killed as a man drove into him with a car at a building near Montreal. Rangers projected lineup: Kreider - Hayes - Nash Zuccarello - Brassard - St. Louis Hagelin - D.
