NEW YORK -- Yankee Stadium is already a home run haven for Wil Myers -- whether he hits the ball over the fence or not. Marqise Lee Nike Jersey . Myers had an inside-the-park homer, his latest big blow against the New York Yankees, and drove in four runs as the Tampa Bay Rays battered an ineffective CC Sabathia in a 5-1 victory Sunday. Erik Bedard earned his first win as a starter since last June, and Evan Longoria had an early RBI double to help the Rays finish 5-5 on a trying trip that included a doubleheader sweep Thursday in Boston and a 14-inning win Friday night in New York. "One of the best weve ever had," manager Joe Maddon said. "We talked about the possibility of getting a little bit of a bump from the three games in Boston. Apparently, we have." Desmond Jennings, who homered in his previous three games, had three hits and Logan Forsythe scored twice. Tampa Bay has taken consecutive series for the first time this season, and won eight of its last 10 games in the Bronx. Myers knocked in three runs with his homer off the top of the centre-field fence and then chased Sabathia with a ringing RBI double in the fourth. Asked if he remembered the previous time he hit an inside-the-park homer, Myers said: "I dont know. Not since I was 8?" The struggling Sabathia (3-4) gave up 10 hits and five runs in 3 2-3 innings, his shortest start since lasting 2 2-3 innings on Oct. 2, 2009, at Tampa Bay. He was late covering first on a potential double play and got booed during an outing that raised his ERA to 5.75. "I would have booed myself today, too. I wouldnt want to come to the ballpark and watch that," Sabathia said. Peyton Manning and his brother, Eli, showed up to watch buddy Derek Jeter play one last time during his final season. The star quarterbacks sat in Jeters suite along the first base line but didnt see much of a show -- a slumping Jeter went 0 for 4 and stranded four runners. He was 4 for 30 (.133) on New Yorks 3-5 homestand and is hitless in 13 at-bats. Bedard (1-1) pitched six-plus effective innings for his first win as a starter since June 26 for Houston against St. Louis. He had been 0-9 in 15 starts since, though he did win in relief on Sept. 4 against Minnesota. "I didnt realize how long its been," Bedard said. "But yeah, its nice." Forsythe, the first batter Sabathia faced, doubled off the wall in left and scored on Longorias ground-rule double to right. "He was out of sync from the get-go," Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said. "He didnt warm up particularly well. I was kind of watching to see what we could do, but there wasnt much." With runners at first and second in the third, Myers sent a long drive to right-centre beyond the reach of Jacoby Ellsbury. The ball hit the top of the wall near the 385-foot sign, caromed off a leaping Ellsbury and rolled away along the warning track. Last seasons AL Rookie of the Year jogged out of the batters box, then turned it on while rounding first base. He scored standing up without a play after second baseman Yangervis Solarte couldnt handle a one-hop throw from right fielder Carlos Beltran, who was late backing up. "Off the bat, I thought it was gone," Myers said. "Wasnt stoppin. Wasnt stoppin." It was Tampa Bays 11th inside-the-park homer and first since Ben Zobrists against Toronto at Tropicana Field on Sept. 25, 2011. The previous player to hit an inside-the-park home run at Yankee Stadium was Jeter against Kansas City on July 22, 2010, according to STATS. Myers also homered Saturday and had a tiebreaking single in the 14th inning of the series opener Friday night. He has hit safely in all 13 of his games at Yankee Stadium, the longest streak to start a career at the new or old versions of the ballpark. Myers is batting .375 with four homers and 14 RBIs in seven games against New York this season -- compared to .202 with no homers and four RBIs against everyone else. Seven of his 17 career homers have come against the Yankees. Solarte tied it at 1 with a sacrifice fly in the second, but it was all Rays after that. Jake McGee, Joel Peralta and Grant Balfour finished with scoreless relief. "We didnt really hit at all," Yankees cleanup man Mark Teixeira said. "That was a pretty lacklustre performance all the way around." Alfredo Aceves, called up from the minors Saturday, relieved Sabathia and pitched shutout ball the rest of the way, saving New Yorks bullpen. NOTES: Maddon rested the slumping Zobrist to give him consecutive days off, including Mondays off day. Tampa Bay opens a six-game homestand Tuesday night against Baltimore. ... Longoria made his first start of the season at DH, with Forsythe replacing him at third base. ... Yankees INF Brendan Ryan (spine) is close to coming off the DL, manager Joe Girardi said. Blake Bortles Womens Jersey . Antolin Alcaraz headed into his own net in the opening minute, and Seamus Coleman repeated the feat in the 31st as Everton missed a chance to provisionally move above Arsenal into fourth place. Arsenal remained one point in front ahead of its home game against Newcastle on Monday, after which both teams will only have two matches remaining. Blake Bortles Authentic Jersey . The 29-year-old native of Quebec City was selected in the sixth round, 47th overall, by Winnipeg in the 08 CFL draft after playing collegiately at Sherbrooke.The Chicago Blackhawks will try to avoid a third straight loss in the Western Conference Final when they visit the Los Angles Kings for Mondays Game 4 battle at Staples Center. Follow the action live NOW on TSN and TSN GO, beginning with the NHL on TSN pre-game show. The Blackhawks won the opener of this set 3-1 and then held a 2-0 lead late in the second period of Game 2 before Los Angeles came alive. The Kings used a furious comeback to take the second meeting in Chicago by a 6-2 score and then posted a 4-3 decision in Saturdays Game 3 in L.A. to grab a 2-1 edge in this best-of-seven series. The defending Stanley Cup champions hope to turn things around on Monday and even this set at two games apiece before it heads back to Chicago for Wednesdays Game 5. The Blackhawks beat the Kings in five games during the West finals a year ago before downing Boston to win the Cup for the second time in four seasons. Chicago is 2-5 on the road in the 2014 playoffs after Saturdays loss. The Kings are 4-3 on home ice this postseason. Jeff Carter has fueled the Kings offence over the last two games, recording four goals and three assists over Games 2 and 3. Carter recorded a hat trick and an assist in Game 2 and added a goal and two assists to help L.A. win Saturday on home ice. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Carter is the first Kings player to register three or more points in consecutive playoff games since Wayne Gretzky did it in 1993. After scoring six straight to win Game 2 in a rout, the Kings lit the lamp three straight times after falling behind, 2-1, on Saturday. Carter scored the tying goal at 8:08 of the second period in Game 3 and set up the go-ahead goal by Tyler Toffoli six minutes later. Carter has 19 points (8G, 11A) this postseason, one point behind teammate Anze Kopitar for the NHL lead. Drew Doughty had a goal and an assist, while Slava Voynov notched a power-play marker for the Kings, who can take a stranglehold in this series tonight. "Two-to-one series against the defending Stanley Cup Champs, I dont think theres taking control of a series," said Los Angeles forward Dustin Brown. "I think that both teams have shown that they are able to battle adversity. This is a team that was down last year and found a way to come back, so we did what we wanted tonight and got the lead in the series. Now its about resetting and reloading. Were up in the series, we have to keep going up." Jonathan Quick stopped 24 shots in Saturdays win, while Corey Crawford allowed all four goals on 32 shots for the Blackhawks, who went 0-for-4 on the power play. Chicago captain Jonathan Toews scored two goals in a losing effort. Marqise Lee Authentic Jersey. After his clubs second straight loss, Toews said now is not the time for frustration to set in. "We played well but we didnt get the result we wanted tonight," said Toews. "Well keep improving and move on to the next one. There is no time for getting discouraged and frustrated. We know we can keep pushing it to that next level and that is what its going to take against these guys. Clearly they want it badly and are playing really hard. For us I think its just a matter of continuing that effort that we started with in the first period." Toews scored short-handed 5:26 into Saturdays game, but Voynov tallied just 50 seconds later off a feed from Carter to even the score. Toews added his second goal of the game with 6:41 remaining in the first, but that would be Chicagos last goal until Patrick Sharp tallied in the closing seconds of regulation. Los Angeles tied the game at 8:08 of the second period on Carters eighth of the playoffs. Tanner Pearson fought for the puck behind the net and sent a pass to the front where Carter one-timed it in. The Kings took their first lead of the game six minutes later after a neutral zone turnover saw Carter chip the puck through the middle and behind the defence. Toffoli caught up to the puck and went backhand to forehand before sliding it in for his sixth of the playoffs and a 3-2 lead. "Getting pucks deep and getting lots of pucks to the net and creating traffic, you cant score goals unless you get the puck on net and drive to the net," said Toffoli. "If you look at our goals tonight, its cut into our system and were executing well right now." Quick stopped 10 shots in the second frame and helped Los Angeles kill off two penalties to keep the lead. The score stayed at 3-2 until Doughty tallied on a blast from the top of the right circle with 8:03 left in the third. Sharp scored with just 4.2 seconds remaining, but Chicago was unable to get another shot on net before time expired. Patrick Kane, last seasons Conn Smythe winner for the Blackhawks, has yet to register a point in the first three games of the series, but he hopes to break out in Game 4. "Just demand (the puck)," Kane said about how he can get on track. "Thats the biggest thing. Demand the puck and when I do get it be confident with it. Those two things will generally lead to better games from myself." This series marks the first time two teams are meeting in the Western finals in back-to-back years since the Stars/Avalanche in 1999-2000. ' ' '
