|BOSTON -- Mike Carp spent more than a month on the disabled list with a broken right foot. Justin Evans Jersey . He watched the Boston Red Sox struggle, wishing he could contribute. Sometimes, he couldnt bear to watch. "Some of the nights, I almost had to turn the TV off in those situations because you cant be there to help," Carp said. "Its tough being on the DL with a boot on my foot." He was smiling Thursday after delivering a pinch-hit single in the 10th inning that gave the Red Sox a 4-3 win, their second consecutive walk-off victory over the Chicago White Sox. "Happy times," said Carp, who was on the disabled list from June 2 until being activated Monday. There havent been many of those this season for the Red Sox, the defending World Series champions who are in last place in the AL East. With two straight wins to end their 3-7 homestand, they head to Houston for a three-game series with a chance to build some momentum going into the All-Star break. "Hopefully itll get us in a little bit of a rhythm, comfort level," said left-hander Jon Lester, who allowed one run and struck out 12 in seven innings. "A win like today is huge." Lester gave up seven hits and no walks. In his last six starts, hes 3-0 with a 1.01 ERA, 39 strikeouts, six walks and 33 hits allowed in 44 2-3 innings. He extended his streak to 45 innings without giving up a homer. But fellow All-Star Koji Uehara allowed a tying, two-run homer in the ninth to pinch-hitter Conor Gillaspie -- his third long ball in three games and fourth of the season. "Hes been hotter than all get-out lately," teammate Adam Eaton said. David Ortiz had a two-run double that gave the Red Sox a 3-1 lead in the sixth after Jose Quintana retired Bostons first 15 batters. "I really wanted to win this game because (Lesters) a really good pitcher," said Quintana, whose scoreless streak ended at 20 2-3 innings, "but I had one bad inning in the sixth." Pinch-hitter Daniel Nava started the winning rally with a leadoff walk and went to second on a sacrifice by Mookie Betts. Stephen Drew, in an 0-for-15 slump, was intentionally walked by Ronald Belisario (3-. Carp, who had been 0 for 2 as a pinch hitter in the series, then batted for David Ross and lined a single between shortstop and third base. Nava scored the winning run for the second consecutive game, and Carp was mobbed by teammates rushing out of the dugout. In Bostons 5-4 comeback victory Wednesday night, Nava doubled in Betts for the tying run in the ninth and scored on Brock Holts single. Chicago had runners at first and third with two outs in the 10th, but Alexei Ramirez was retired on a grounder to pitcher Andrew Miller (3-5). Ramirez led off the ninth with an infield single -- after first base umpire Cory Blasers out call was reversed on replay. Uehara then struck out Paul Konerko before Gillaspie, batting for Moises Sierra, homered. Lester trailed 1-0 after three batters. Eaton singled, Gordon Beckham struck out and Jose Abreu hit an RBI double over a leaping Jonny Gomes in left field. Lester then struck out Dayan Viciedo. Lester fanned two batters in each of the first five innings and one each in the sixth and seventh before being replaced by Junichi Tazawa, who pitched a perfect eighth. Uehara failed to hold the lead, though, his second blown save in 20 chances this season. Boston went ahead in the sixth when the first three batters reached base on full counts. Drew became Bostons first runner with a walk and went to second on a walk to Ross. Jackie Bradley Jr. attempted to bunt on the first four pitches, then took a ball to bring the count to 3-2. He grounded a single to right field for Bostons first hit, driving in Drew with the tying run. The next two batters were retired before Ortizs two-run double.

No.DOHA, Qatar - Men crammed together, dozens to a room, on bunk beds so close they can reach over and shake hands.Qatar, on paper at least, has rules that forbid such uncomfortable conditions for its massive workforce of migrant labourers. Yet this is how the government-owned transport company, which the Gulf nation will use to ferry visitors around the 2022 World Cup, has housed some of its workers.As Qatar employs legions of migrants to build stadiums and other works for the football showcase, widespread labour abuses documented by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other critics have blackened its name and $160 billion preparations.Hundreds of worker deaths, many apparently from cardiac arrests, have also fueled concerns that labourers are being overworked in desert conditions and shoddily treated. Reporting this April on a fact-finding mission, the U.Ns special adviser on migrants rights, Francois Crepeau, cited anecdotal evidence that too many of these mostly young men return home in a coffin.Problems, The Associated Press found, arent limited to the construction sector.Accommodation for drivers of buses and of Qatars distinctive turquoise taxis is a walled-off compound in the bleak industrial zone of Doha, the capital. Dust-covered cadavers of burned-out buses and broken taxis abandoned on surrounding wasteland make the luxury malls and gleaming towers of central Doha seem far away.The compound walls and flag over the main gate bear the name Mowasalat. The transporter plans to have 7,000 taxis on the roads by the World Cup.In one dormitory block, in what drivers said was meant to be a recreation room for table tennis and other pastimes, the AP saw two dozen bunk beds in three tight lines.The arrangements were apparently meant to be only temporary, but drivers said they had lived like this for months. Without lockers, they hung clothes and towels from bed frames. In a corner, one man gave another a shave. Drivers said around 30 of them were housed there and that other blocks in the compound which the AP didnt visit had similarly crowded rooms.Yet a 2005 ministerial decree said workers should not be housed more than four to a room or be made to sleep in bunks.In its company brochure, Mowasalat speaks of excellent housing facilities for employees. But even a standard dormitory room the AP saw slept six, also on bunks. Drivers said the close living is physically and morally wearing, with rest difficult and quarrels easy.Mowasalat did not reply to emailed questions. But it did appear to thin out numbers in the supposed recreation rooms after the AP showed a photo of the cramped conditions to Mowasalat executives. Drivers subsequently reached by phone said some of them were moved to other rooms. One said he was transferred from a room with 43 drivers, where he spent two months, to another with 16, still on bunks.Thanks for highlighting our plight to some Mowasalat management, another driver wrote by email to the AP. Custom Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys. Since you raised the mat(t)er they have slightly decongested the common room. Still it is no decent way for workers to live but its a step forward.Qatars World Cup organizers are trying to limit the reputational damage of labour abuses by treating their own workers better than the norm.Officials for the Supreme Committee putting together the World Cup gave the AP a tour of housing for stadium builders from Southeast Asia. They sleep three to a room, some with en-suite bathrooms, and on their own beds, not bunks, with curtains for additional privacy. They even have a pool. In the free canteen, workers heaped their plates with rice, flatbreads and curries.In his consulting room with the sign WE ARE HERE FOR YOU on one wall, the camps jovial doctor said the workers health problems are generally no more serious than allergic coughs and sniffles from working in dust and sand, skin itches from sweating, and the aches, pains, sprains and scrapes of manual labour.World Cup workers are also covered by special regulations which lay out their right to be treated in a manner that ensures at all times their wellbeing, health, safety and security and detail how contractors must ethically recruit, promptly pay, and decently house them.The Supreme Committees power to award tournament-related contracts also gives it leverage to force improvements.I have had to make the phone call several times to contractors to say Sorry mate, weve been to your camp. We dont think youre treating your people the way we want anyone on our sites to be treated, so youre out of the running, I cant work with you, said Tamim el-Abed, project manager of Lusail Stadium earmarked for the 2022 opening game and final.They scrabble around trying to pull together a superficial Band-Aid response. We see through that, he said. Sometimes they do a genuine turn-around and they improve their facilities.Its about culture change, he said.However, to critics, singling out World Cup workers for better treatment smacks of double standards. They want deeper, across-the-board reforms for all.Even at the stadium builders facility, not all are treated equally. A Kenyan security guard there complained to the AP that six sleep in his small room, on bunks. Supreme Committee officials said the man isnt directly employed by them but by a subcontractor.Putting in place a two-tier labour system, which is what they are talking about, is not much of a legacy, said Nicholas McGeehan, a Middle East researcher for Human Rights Watch.I dont think its something that we should accept, McGeehan said. Its OK to protect World Cup workers but its not OK to protect, what, transport workers? Taxi drivers? Cleaners? Do they not deserve the same?___Rob Harris can be followed at —www.twitter.com/RobHarris and John Leicester at —www.twitter.com/JohnLeicester Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
