PHILADELPHIA -- Patience helped the Atlanta Braves keep their winning streak going. Cheap Terrelle Pryor Jersey . After the Braves couldnt take advantage of a bases-loaded opportunity in the fourth inning, they used a five-run fifth inning, including consecutive homers from Brian McCann and Chris Johnson, for their eighth straight victory, 6-4 over the Phillies. "Everythings a run," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "You get a good run of hitting or you get a good run of pitching -- seems like our good run of pitching has been really consistent the whole year. But you see some guys with some good approaches, good at-bats, keep the lineup moving." McCanns two-run shot gave the Braves a 4-2 lead just two batters after Justin Upton tied it on an RBI single. "(It was) just a mistake pitch," Phillies rookie Ethan Martin (0-1) said on McCanns homer. "Theyll make you pay for mistakes." Johnson extended his hitting streak to 11 games with his seventh homer to make it 5-2. He also had a seventh-inning double to extend his streak of multihit games to eight games. It is the most for any Braves player since the franchise moved to Atlanta in 1966. "Im trying not to think about it really," Johnson said. "Im trying to keep my same approach every single day, try to come in tomorrow do my exact same routine." Kris Medlen (8-10) earned the victory, going six innings while giving up six hits and four runs, including three solo homers. He struck out eight and walked one. Darin Ruf, Delmon Young and Chase Utley homered for Philadelphia, which has lost 11 of 13 since the All-Star break. David Carpenter struck out the Philadelphia side in the seventh, Jordan Walden fanned two in the eighth and Craig Kimbrel got two in the ninth for his NL-best 32nd save. After Martin escaped the fourth, he struggled in the fifth and got just one out before leaving the game. He allowed six runs and eight hits overall. "We were trying to be patient the first time around, try to get him to throw his fastball, but he was pretty darn good the first couple innings," Gonzalez said. "Then I think the second time around the lineup we had a better look at him. But that young man is going to be successful." Ruf gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead in the second inning when he sent a full-count fastball into the left-field bleachers for his third home run of the season. On the next pitch, Delmon Young hit one out to right to make it 2-0. Jason Heyward got the Braves on the board with an RBI single in the third. Utley homered and Cody Asche added an RBI groundout in the sixth to close out the scoring. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and shortstop Jimmy Rollins were ejected in the ninth inning arguing an apparent foul tip by Young that was called strike three. "I saw it or I wouldnt have gone out there," Manuel said. "It hit the ground. The umpire at first said he saw him catch it. ... I wasnt going to come back to the dugout embarrassed." Notes: Ruf has reached base in 30 straight games, going back to last season -- the longest active streak in the majors. Hes hit .310 over that span, with 15 of 31 hits going for extra bases. ... Over his 11-game hitting streak, Chris Johnson has gone 21 for 44 and raised his average to .347. ... Philadelphia placed rookie RHP Jonathan Pettibone (5-4, 4.04 ERA) on the 15-day disabled list prior to the game with a right shoulder strain. The Phillies also designated RHP J.C. Ramirez for assignment and promoted RHP Zach Miner from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. ... Curt Schilling, who spent eight-plus seasons of his 20-year career with the Phillies, was inducted into the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame prior to the game. ... John Lannan (3-4, 4.10 ERA) will start Saturday for Philadelphia on three days rest. Lannan has never pitched on short rest in his career. ... Brandon Beachy will go for Atlanta on Saturday, making his second start back following Tommy John surgery. ... Cliff Lee, scratched from his last start with a stiff neck, will take the mound Sunday for the Phillies. Cheap Sua Cravens Jersey .

Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. Ryan Hoffman has endorsed Kieran Foran as the type of winner the Warriors desperately need to help the NRLs most enigmatic line-up finally break their premiership duck.Foran is yet to receive the green light from the NRL to resume playing following his well-documented struggles with mental illness, but is hopeful of resurrecting his career in his native New Zealand next season.The former Kiwi international is undergoing shoulder rehab at the Warriors, with the club confident the league approves his registration - hopefully by Christmas.With Cronulla landing their maiden title in 2016, after North Queensland broke through last year, the Warriors and Gold Coast are now the only two teams in the competition without a premiership.Hoffman has personally won three with Melbourne, though two were later stripped for the Storms salary-cap breaches.With a qualified opinion, the classy back-rower believes Foran - who guided Manly to the 2011 premiership - is exactly what the Warriors need to go to the next level in 2017.Just his status in the game. Hes a bloke thats done everything - thats a winner, Hoffman told AAP at Wednesdays Auckland Nines launch in Sydney.Hes a successful player, he knows what winning looks like and he knows what it takes to win so hell be a great example for a lot of our players.Hoffman also believes Foran would be the perfect foil for the Warriors go-to man and former Golden Boot winner Shaun Johnson.Hes a premiership-wiinning ball-player and we lost a very, very good five-eighth in Thomas Leuluai last year, he said. Wholesale Redskins Jerseys. To hopefully get another one like Kieran come along would put us in the right direction and take a little bit of pressure off Shaun as well.Despite their star-studded roster, the Warriors have failed to make the finals since losing to Manly in the 2011 decider and Hoffman says fans have every right to be frustrated at the sides unpredictable nature.Youd love to know the magic formula (of success). Youd probably sell it for a million dollars, he said.But its a mental thing with us. Its about making sure our head space is in the right direction.Basically for the Warriors its going to be about us being comfortable about being uncomfortable. For every person in the club, we need to make sure were working hard for the greater good of the team.With Kiwi great Stephen Kearney replacing Andrew McFadden as head coach in 2017, Hoffman is confident the Warriors can deliver.Our focus in 2017 is playing to our potential, he said.Its going to be playing the way the Warriors should and need to play and its a bit of a fresh start but a fresh start with a bit of continuity with Andrew being involved but having Steve coming in.Its been a good pre-season but the proofs going to be in the pudding come the NRL season. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
