COLUMBIA, S. [url=http://www.cheapairmax1nz.com/]Cheap Air Max 1 NZ[/url] .C. -- Steve Spurrier was much happier about South Carolinas improved performance than about his lastest career milestone. The 21st-ranked Gamecocks bounced back from an embarrassing opening-week loss to Texas A&M with a 33-23 victory over East Carolina on Saturday night. Mike Davis rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns, the offensive line controlled things during a fourth-quarter drive of nearly 11 minutes and the defensive forced a pair of turnovers and blocked a field goal -- all which Spurrier considered far more important than his 200th career win as a Southeastern Conference coach. "This was a good win," Spurrier said. "It was a fun one." Certainly a lot more fun than the last one, when the Gamecocks (1-1) were run of their building in a 52-28 loss to the Aggies. Davis managed just 15 yards before leaving with bruised ribs and South Carolinas defence allowed a school-worst 680 yards. "It worked out for us," Spurrier said. "Not quite as talented as some of our teams in the past, thats obvious. But the kids hung in there." The Gamecocks (1-1) trailed 13-7 early on with the Pirates (1-1) threatening to put another Aggie-style beating on them. But behind Davis grinding runs and the defences improving play, South Carolina found its footing in its first win of the season. Spurrier became the third person ever with that many wins while coaching SEC teams. Only Paul "Bear" Bryant with 292 and Vince Dooley with 201 have more than the head ball coach. Spurrier can tie Dooley next week against his old team when the Gamecocks host No. 6 Georgia at Williams-Brice Stadium. Did the head ball coach think much about the achievement? "Oh, I hadnt really thought about that, I was hoping to get a win," he said. "I was worried about going into the Georgia game 0-2." The Gamecocks got four field goals from Elliott Fry and a 16-yard touchdown pass from Dylan Thompson to K.J. Brent. East Carolina closed to 30-23 on Cam Worthys 17-yard TD catch with 12:03 left. But the Gamecocks went on a nearly 11-minute drive, finishing with Frys 20-yard field goal with 1:30 left to put the game away. The series lasted 18 plays, the last 13 of them on the ground. "Everybody in the stadium knew where the ball was going and we still had success with it," Thompson said. East Carolina quarterback Shane Carden threw for 321 yards, the second time in as many weeks the Gamecocks have given up big passing numbers after the Aggies Kenny Hill threw for 511. Pirates receiver Justin Hardy had 11 catches for 133 yards. South Carolina was desperate to show some polish on offence and toughness on defence. But it was the Pirates of the American Athletic Conference who got the jump on things. Carden looked a lot like Texas A&M record-setter Hill, completing long passes and quickly moving East Carolina down field for a pair of field goals and Chris Hairstons 10-yard TD run to move in front 13-7. But Davis, who last year gained 1,183 yards, turned things the Gamecocks way. The junior had missed the second half against Texas A&M with bruised ribs -- and a sizeable Aggies lead -- and didnt start this one. He got going late in the opening quarter with his twisting, 36-yard touchdown run helped by some solid downfield blocks by tight end Rory Anderson and receiver Shaq Roland. Davis put the Gamecocks ahead to stay in the second quarter. He took a sideline swing pass from Thompson 19 yards to the East Carolina 3, then finished off the drive on the next play for a 17-13 lead. It was Davis first 100-yard effort in six games since rushing for 128 in a win over Mississippi State last Nov. 2. And Davis vowed he wouldnt let lingering bumps and bruises keep him from facing Georgia and their backfield star, Todd Gurley. "I feel good. I dont remember the injury," Davis said. For East Carolina, this was the start of a three-game stretch against programs from the "Power Five" conferences. The Pirates take on Virginia Tech and North Carolina the next two weeks. "This is a tough loss but were right back at it next week against a very good team," said Carden, the quarterback. "We cant dwell on this." South Carolinas defence stiffened up after a rough start against the Pirates. The Gamecocks gave up 195 yards in the opening period and just 82 in the second quarter. Defensive lineman Gerald Dixon Jr. ended another drive by blocking Harveys 42-yard field goal try late in the second quarter. It was the Gamecocks first blocked field goal since 2011 when current Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore did it against Tennessee.

Hopefully this year we will be better," Brendan Gallagher said after practice. This year, the Canadiens have a little more depth to work with by adding players like Daniel Briere, Dale Weise, Mike Weaver, Douglas Murray and arguably, the biggest addition to this playoff roster, Thomas Vanek, who the Canadiens were able to land at the trade deadline.

Johnson even took in the Montreal Canadiens Game 5 win over the New York Rangers at the Bell Centre Tuesday night.

The slumping Middlebrooks pumped his fist a few times after hitting an RBI single with the bases loaded, capping a two-run rally in the eighth inning that sent the Red Sox over the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Wednesday night for a sweep of the two-game interleague series. "I just wanted to help the team win and to contribute," Middlebrooks said. Mired in a 2-for-19 stretch and coming off an 0-for-5 night with a pair of strikeouts, Middlebrooks sent a hard grounder up the middle for the go-ahead run. "Ive been frustrated, but regardless if youre 10-for-10 or 0-for-10 or whatever, youre happy to contribute to a win in any way possible," he said. David Ortiz and Mike Napoli also drove in runs for the World Series champions, who reached .500 for the first time since the fourth game of the season. They failed in eight previous chances. "I dont think it was a mental hurdle," Boston manager John Farrell said. "I never heard too many of us mention that were bumping up against .500 and taking a step back. It was just more of a situation inside games where we had opportunities that we havent cashed in on, finally we do tonight." Skip Schumaker hit a two-run homer for Cincinnati, who lost the opener to Boston 4-3 in 12 innings. It was the Reds 11th one-run loss, most in the majors. "We play a lot of low scoring, one-run games," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "Were battling and well be whole soon, but until then weve got to find a way to create some distance between ourselves and our opponent. Itll come down to making every single play over the course of those last three innings to win the game, and it cant be like that every single day of a baseball season." Trailing 3-2 in the eighth, the Red Sox scored against two relievers. "Its tough," Reds left fielder Chris Heisey said. "We felt like we had the game and let it slip away." Napoli drew a one-out walk from Manny Parra, J.J. Hoover (1-4) walked pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes and A.J. Pierzynskis ground-rule double tied it at 3. Jackie Bradley Jr. was intentionally walked before Middlebrooks had his tiebreaking hit. Craig&nnbsp;Breslow (2-0), who also got the win in Tuesdays game, pitched one hitless inning. [url=http://www.cheapairmax1nz.com/]Nike Air Max 1 NZ[/url]. Koji Uehara struck out the final three batters for his eighth save. Cincinnati starter Mike Leake pitched seven strong innings and was in line for the win before Boston rallied. He gave up two runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out four. Bostons Jake Peavy allowed three or fewer runs for the sixth time in seven starts, giving up three runs on four hits with four walks and five strikeouts. The Reds took a 3-2 lead in the seventh when Roger Bernadina bounced a slow groundout to second against reliever Chris Capuano with the bases loaded. In the bottom half, Heisey made a nice inning-ending running catch on Shane Victorinos liner into the gap with the tying run on second. Boston tied it with a pair of runs in the sixth on a run-scoring single by Ortiz and RBI double by Napoli. It could have been worse for Leake, but Grady Sizemore bounced to second with runners on second and third and, after an intentional walk, Bradley Jr. hit an inning-ending grounder. Schumaker, who came off the 15-day disabled list on Saturday after being sidelined since spring training with a dislocated left shoulder, homered in the third after Heisey had a leadoff double. The teams bounced into a combined five double plays, with the Red Sox turning three. NOTES: Farrell didnt start SS Xander Bogaerts to "get another left-handed bat in the lineup." Switch-hitter Jonathan Herrera took his spot and batted ninth. Bogaerts came in as a defensive replacement in the ninth. ... Leake had given up eight hits and four runs over seven innings in each of his last two starts. ... Reds RHP Alfredo Simon turned 33 Wednesday. ... The Reds are off until Friday, when they open a six-game homestand against Colorado with RHP Johnny Cueto (3-2, 1.31 ERA) going against RHP Jhoulys Chacin (0-1, 7.20). After Peavy, Chacin is the second of four straight starting pitchers the Reds are scheduled to face with the first letter of their first name starting with the letter "J." The Rockies will are also slated pitch RHP Jordan Lyles and Juan Nicasio. ... Boston is also off Thursday before opening a six-game road trip in Texas when RHP Clay Buchholz (2-2, 5.63) faces Yu Darvish (2-1, 2.87).
