OAKLAND, Calif. Andy Pettitte Jersey . -- A rare full day off turned out to be just what the Pittsburgh Pirates needed to keep Jeff Lockes winning streak going.Getting six hits and six RBI from the bottom four batters in the lineup certainly helped, too.Jody Mercer homered and had an RBI single and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied from three runs down to beat stumbling ace Sonny Gray and the Oakland Athletics 7-3 on Friday night.Matt Joyce added two hits, Josh Harrison drove in two runs while Andrew McCutcheon doubled and scored on a wild pitch to help the Pirates to their first win in their history at the Coliseum and just their second in 13 games between the two franchises.Its kind of what we saw the first two months of the season when we were connecting all dots, top to bottom in the lineup, Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. June was hard. The lineup has played much more consistent . than any other time here.The Pirates beat the As in their first meeting since 2013 by taking advantage of another shaky outing by Gray (3-7).He gave up seven runs, hit a batter and threw two wild pitches in six innings while losing his sixth consecutive decision. The right-hander, third in the 2015 AL Cy Young voting, is winless since April 22.Marcus Semien hit his 17th home run of the season for Oakland.Hell figure it out and hell get better as the year goes on, As manager Bob Melvin said. Theres always going to be a year thats not as good as others. So fa this is the one for him.Pittsburghs 5-6-7 hitters combined for six hits, five RBI and four runs scored. Chris Stewart, the No. 9 hitter, drove in the go-ahead run with a fielders choice grounder in the fifth.Thats what makes our team us, Harrison said. It can be anybody, and thats what we have to get back to.Mercer homered in the third and added an RBI single as part of a two-run fifth.Harrisons two-out, two-run double in the sixth put the Pirates up 7-3.LOCKED INPirates starter Jeff Locke (8-5) also struggled early but retired the final nine batters he faced to win his third straight. He gave up three runs over five innings with three walks and three strikeouts. Three relievers combined to retire the final 12 batters and complete the four-hitter. It was a strong finish, Hurdle said. His fastball wasnt of the quality that we had seen the last two times out . but he stayed in the hunt, made pitches, battled and finished very strong. Thats a sign of maturity.LINEUP SHUFFLEJed Lowrie had decent results while batting leadoff for the first time this season. He drew a walk from Locke in the first before Semien homered on a 3-2 pitch. Oaklands second baseman added an RBI double in the second to make it 3-0.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: Ryan Vogelsong faced hitters while throwing off the mound in the latest step of his recovery after getting hit in the face with a pitch on May 23. Vogelsong, who underwent surgery on June 2 to repair the multiple fractures he suffered, remains on the 60-day disabled list and isnt eligible to return until July 23. . Right-hander Gerrit Cole (triceps strain) also pitched a simulated game prior to the series opener with Oakland. The Pirates are encouraged but havent determined what the next step is. . Francisco Cervelli (broken hamate in left hand) continues to make progress and could catch the next round of sim games for Vogelsgong and Cole.Athletics: Infielder Tyler Ladendorf was recalled from Triple-A Nashville before the game. Left-hander Dillion Overton, the losing pitcher against San Francisco on Thursday, was optioned down. Overton went 1-1 with an 11.42 ERA in two starts.UP NEXTPirates: Right-hander Chad Kuhl (1-0) pitches against Oakland on Saturday in his second career start in the majors after beating Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers in his debut.Athletics: Rich Hill is expected to come off the disabled list to start against Pittsburgh.

Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. Adelaide have resisted the temptation to test their depth against bottom-placed Essendon in the AFL.With bookmakers placing the sixth-placed Crows at $1.01 to win Sundays twilight game at Adelaide Oval, few could have blamed selectors for mixing things up.Adelaide have used just 27 players so far this season, the fewest of any side in the competition.In contrast, the depleted Bombers have rotated through 38 players, equal to Collingwood and second only to injury-ravaged Gold Coast (39).But the Crows appear in no rush to change things up, recalling speedsters Paul Seedsman and David Mackay to replace skipper Taylor Walker (ankle) and defender Ricky Henderson (achilles).We wont get too cute on the way through, coach Don Pyke said on Thursday.I think theres a real risk in doing that.If theres clearly guys who are in need of a rest or who have got injuries theyre carrying, well manage them accordingly but otherwise well keep the team rolling.Essendon have named James Polkinghorne, Craig Bird and Sam Michael to replace James Kelly (rested), Mitch Brown (groin) and Shaun McKernan (illness).With only percentage separating six of the AFLs top eight sides, a game agaainst Essendon couldnt come at a better time for Adelaide. Paul ONeill Jersey. The Crows are second only to Greater Western Sydney as the highest-scoring side in the competition.Essendon are the lowest-scoring team and also have the second-worst defensive record, conceding an average of 110 points per game.But with the Crows coming off a humbling 30-point loss to Geelong, Pyke said he had no interest in demanding an ultra-attacking performance.Were not in that headspace at all, he said.The guys are pretty keen to atone for what was a performance which wasnt like us last week.Were going to focus on Essendon, focus on playing our way and playing the system we want to play.Well take the result whatever that brings.TESTING THE DEPTH: MOST PLAYERS USED BY AFL SIDES TO RD19, 2016:39 - Gold Coast38 - Collingwood, Essendon37 - Brisbane, Fremantle, Richmond36 - Melbourne, Western Bulldogs35 - Greater Western Sydney34 - Carlton, North Melbourne, Port Adelaide, Sydney33 - St Kilda32 - Geelong, Hawthorn, West Coast27 - Adelaide(Source: Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched JerseysWholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
