BOSTON -- A year after the Boston Marathon bombings, the Red Sox had plenty of chances to make a special day even more memorable. They almost succeeded. Boston scored one run in each of the last three innings -- stranding runners in scoring position in all of them -- -- in a 7-6 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Mondays traditional Patriots Day morning game Not bad, though, considering the Red Sox trailed 6-0 after three innings. "Our guys battled and fought and did a good job of making a game of it and it came down to the last pitch," David Ross said. "We did a good job of representing Red Sox baseball today. We just want to win, obviously, for the fans and the whole situation." Boston beat Tampa Bay 3-2 in last years Patriots Day game. About 40 minutes after the final out, two bombs went off near the marathon finish line a little over a mile from Fenway Park, killing three spectators. This year, Mondays game began at 11:09 a.m., 12 hours, 28 minutes after Bostons 6-5 win ended Sunday night. "Once you show up here, we have a job to do," Baltimores Adam Jones said. "It doesnt matter what time it is." The game started about an hour before Meb Keflezighi crossed the finish line as the first American man to win the Marathon since Greg Meyer in 1983. A long, loud cheer went up when the result of the race was shown on the centre field video screen. Bostons Mike Napoli called Monday "a special day." "Of course, you want to go out there and win," he said. That seemed unlikely when Baltimore scored six runs off Clay Buchholz in the third inning. The Red Sox, who overcame a 5-0 deficit Sunday, started to come back again. "It never seems to be enough against these guys," said Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis, who fielded Mike Carps grounder and stepped on first for the last out. "They claw and battle and continue to score runs and put pressure on us to score more runs." Boston loaded the bases with one out in the ninth on a single by Brock Holt, a double by Dustin Pedroia and an intentional walk to David Ortiz. One run scored on Napolis groundout to second before Tommy Hunter escaped with his fifth save. Nothing special for Hunter. "Its another inning, another game," he said. "I was actually pretty calm." Wei-Yin Chen (3-1) and five relievers pitched well enough for Baltimore to gain a split of the four-game series. Baltimore started the third with consecutive singles by Steve Lombardozzi, David Lough, Nick Markakis, Nelson Cruz and Davis that produced three runs. Jones drove in another on a forceout at second base before a run-scoring double by Steve Clevenger and an RBI single by Jonathan Schoop made it 6-0 and knocked out Buchholz (0-2). Buchholz had slept over at Fenway Park after Sunday nights game and doesnt regret the decision. "Id have had to wake up earlier than I did here to get here this morning," he said, "so that had nothing to do with it." Boston cut the lead in half with three runs in the fifth on RBI doubles by Jackie Bradley Jr. and Pedroia and a sacrifice fly by Holt. In the seventh, Boston made it 6-4 on Ross first homer and then had a chance to go ahead after Holt singled and Pedroia walked. But Ortiz hit an inning-ending groundout. Ryan Flahertys RBI single in the eighth made it 7-4 before Napolis solo homer in the bottom half. Singles by Xander Bogaerts and Daniel Nava put runners at first and second with one out, but pinch-hitter Jonathan Herrera struck out as the runners took off and Bogaerts was tagged between second and third. "It takes some added energy," Boston manager John Farrell said of the repeated comeback attempts. "Wed certainly like to get the offence going a little bit earlier rather than having to dig out of a hole." NOTES: Marc Fucarile, who lost his right leg in last years Boston Marathon bombing, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He was married in Fenway Park last Thursday. ... Bostons jerseys had the word "BOSTON" on the front instead of the usual "RED SOX." ... Davis singled and walked twice and tied his career-high by reaching base in 17 straight games. ... The Red Sox send Jon Lester (2-2) to the mound Tuesday night for the start of a three-game home series against the Yankees. Masahiro Tanaka (2-0) pitches for New York. The Orioles will start Miguel Gonzalez (1-1) against R.A. Dickey (1-3) of the Blue Jays in the opener of a three-game series at Toronto. David de Gea Jersey . In the last race before the Sochi Olympics, Bjoergen followed up her win in the 10-kilometre classical race on Saturday by beating World Cup sprint leader Denise Herrmann of Germany by 0.43 seconds for her fifth victory of the season.

Nadal exited in the first round, a year after bowing out in the second. http://www.jerseymanchesterunitedsoccer.com/womens-juan-mata-manchester-united-jersey/. The Brazilian driver had the second-best time in last months tests at Jerez and said the "good start" could play to his advantage when the season gets underway in Australia in March. Victor Lindelof Jersey . That little deal worked out in a big way for the Mavericks. Nowitzki had 21 points Tuesday night to pass Oscar Robertson for 10th on the NBAs career scoring list, leading the Mavs to a 95-83 victory over the Utah Jazz. Marouane Fellaini Jersey . Replay backed him up. Adeiny Hechavarria immediately followed the ruling with a go-ahead sacrifice fly for the Miami Marlins, who held on to beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Sunday completing a three-game sweep.SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Paul George scored eight of his 36 points in overtime and the Indiana Pacers defeated the Sacramento Kings 116-111 on Friday night. The Pacers overcame a 17-point deficit and rallied in the fourth quarter to tie the game. Indiana outscored the Kings 13-8 in overtime to avoid a rare two-game losing streak. Marcus Thornton scored 42 points and hit seven 3-pointers for the Kings. Isaiah Thomas scored 38, tying a career high. The undermanned Kings played without injured leading scorers DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. Lance Stephenson had 24 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Indiana. David West had 22 points and both Roy Hibbert and George Hill scored 10. In overtime, West made a 3 and George dunked after a steal, putting Indiana up 110-106. George later added a corner jumper for a 114-111 lead. George stole the ball from Thomas with 12 seconds left and was fouled. George made two free throws for a 116-111 lead. George made a 3 and was fouled by Derrick Williams with 15 seconds left in regulation. George made the free throw for the four-point play, tying the game at 103. Thomas missed a jumper in the closing seconds, sending the game into overtime. Cousins sprained his left ankle in second quarter in Wednesdays game in Houston and Gay went out in the opening quarter with an injury Achilles tendon. Both players are day-to-day. The Pacers, who trailed by as much as 17 points, hardly resembled the NBAs top defensive team in the opening half, allowing 60 points. Indiana entered the game having allowed fewer than 100 points in only seven of 41 games, including 11 games of 80 points or less. After the Pacers cut the lead to a basket, Thomas followed with a 3 and two free throws and Thornton dropped in a short jumper, putting the Kings ahead 93-86 midway through the third quarter.dddddddddddd Thornton, who has struggled all season offensively and entered the game shooting 36 per cent, scored 22 points in an amazing first quarter. Thornton made 9-of-12 shots, including four 3-pointers in scoring the most points in a quarter this year for the Kings. Thornton exceeded his season-high of 24 points late in the second quarter. On the Kings recent six-game road trip, Thornton had a 24 total points and shot 29 per cent. In his last nine games as a starter Thornton had failed to score in double figures. Hill scored 10 points and George had eight in the third quarter when the Pacers cut the Kings 10-point lead at intermission in half, pulling to within 84-79 entering the fourth. Thornton had 11 points in the third, but the Kings shot 31 per cent. Thornton had 26 points for the Kings, who surprisingly dominated the first half and led 60-50. NOTES: The Kings became the first professional sports team to employ the new Google Glass technology. The Kings mascot (Slamson),dancers, sideline reporters and others closest to the court live-streamed their first-person views through Google Glass, allowing fans at the game, and viewing at home, to witness the courtside experience. . Former New York Mets manager Jerry Manuel was sitting courtside ... Manuel, who lives in the Sacramento region, is helping start a baseball program at William Jessup University in nearby Rocklin. .
