|DETROIT -- Chris Tillman gave up only one run in a second straight start. Denzelle Good Jersey . This time, he had something to show for it. Tillman outpitched Justin Verlander while working into the ninth inning, helping the Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 3-1 Sunday to avoid getting swept. "Some guys see Verlander in the opposite slot and they shy away," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "Tillman takes that as a challenge." Tillman (1-0) gave up five hits, including Torii Hunters solo homer in the fourth. The right-hander was thankful to match a career-high 8 1-3 innings after missing some spots he was targeting. "I know I got away with a couple of pitches," Tillman said. "I tried to go down and away, but I missed up." Tommy Hunter replaced Tillman with one out in the ninth and Victor Martinez on second base and retired the last two batters for his second save. When Baltimore opened with a 2-1 win against Baltimore, Tillman allowed one run over five innings and didnt factor in the decision. Baltimore, which had lost four straight since beating the Red Sox, handed baseballs last undefeated team its first setback of the season. The Orioles had shortstop J.J. Hardy in the lineup, but scratched him because he had back spasms during batting practice. "Frankly, its not much better now," Showalter said. Before the game, Showalter said Verlander has become better because hes more of a pitcher and less of a hard-throwing righty that he used to be. Verlander (0- gave up two runs on five hits and two walks over eight innings. He struck out three, moving past Tommy Bridges and into fourth place on the franchises all-time list with 1,674 in his career, but isnt pleased with that part of facet of his game after fanning just two in his first start. "You get a feel for strikeouts and my feel for those isnt there yet," Verlander said. "Im not executing as well as I should or maybe over-trying a little bit with two strikes and hanging stuff." Adam Jones drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth with a sacrifice fly after Nick Markakis tripled. Baseballs replay system was temporarily unavailable early in the game for the Tigers. Both managers were informed of the technical difficulty during the first inning and it was repaired after a half-inning, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. Tillman had more strikeouts (five) than the Tigers had hits (four) against him through eight innings. After Tillman got Cabrera to ground out for the first out in the ninth, he gave up a double to Martinez that brought the fans to their feet. Hunter then struck out Austin Jackson for the second out of the inning and got Tyler Collins to bounce out for the last one. Torii Hunter homered for the third straight game -- for the first time since 2006 -- to make it 1-0 Tigers. Baltimore tied it at 1 in the sixth inning when Nelson Cruz doubled home Jones, who also hit a double. The Orioles went ahead 3-1 in the ninth after Al Alburquerque replaced Verlander and allowed Matt Wieters to homer. The Tigers scored 17 runs and had 30 hits in the previous two wins against Baltimore, but were kept quiet at the plate in the series finale. "Bats cooled a little bit, but I think that had more to do with Tillman than anything else," Ausmus said after his first loss. NOTES: Orioles stay on the road to play the New York Yankees on Monday afternoon. ... Ausmus was the first to begin his career with four straight win since Clint Hurdle of Colorado and Jerry Royster of Milwaukee both did it in 2002. Vontae Davis Jersey . The Wizards gave up two seldom-used players — forward Jan Vesely and point guard Eric Maynor. Vesely goes to the Nuggets, while Maynor gets shipped to the 76ers. Philadelphia receives two second-round draft picks, one from the Wizards in 2015 and one from the Nuggets in 2016. Al Woods Jersey . Price was hurt at the start of Wednesdays practice after facing just one shot as the team worked on their power play. He left the ice in discomfort and appeared to be favouring his leg. A Habs source told TSNs John Lu that Price suffered the injury in Sochi and not before the Olympics. http://www.nflcoltsgearsshop.com/Rashaan-Melvin.html?cat=932 . Dumont, a fifth round draft pick of the Canadiens in 2009, has four assists and 20 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Bulldogs this season. The 23-year-old split last season between Hamilton and Montreal, recording 16 goals and 15 assists in 55 regular season games with the Bulldogs.CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. - After more than six weeks in limbo, NASCAR star Tony Stewart finally got the news he had been hoping for.A grand jury that heard testimony from more than two dozen witnesses, including accident reconstruction experts and drivers, and looked at photographs and video decided against bringing criminal charges against Stewart for the death of 20-year-old sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. during an Aug. 9 race.That doesnt mean its over.A few hours after Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo announced the grand jurys decision in this upstate New York hamlet, the Ward family indicated in a statement read over the telephone by sister Kayla Herring that they will seek civil damages in the young drivers death.Our son got out of his car during caution when the race was suspended. All the other vehicles were reducing speed and not accelerating except for Stewart, who intentionally tried to intimidate Kevin by accelerating and sliding his car toward him, causing the tragedy, the family said Wednesday. The focus should be on the actions of Mr. Stewart. This matter is not at rest and we will pursue all remedies in fairness to Kevin.The family might have a difficult task: Tantillo disclosed that Ward was under the influence of marijuana the night he died and said two different videos were enhanced, frames were isolated and viewed at at least three different speeds and finally overlaid with grids and data. Both showed Stewart had done nothing wrong.The videos did not demonstrate any aberrational driving by Tony Stewart until the point of impact with Kevin Ward, at which point his vehicle veered to the right up the track as a result of the collision. Prior to that, his course was pretty straight, said Tantillo. He added that toxicology evidence from Wards autopsy indicates that at the time of operation he was under the influence of marijuana. The levels determined were enough to impair judgment.Stewarts reaction was not one of celebration, and his statement had the same twinge of sadness that hes carried since he returned to NASCAR three weeks ago following three weeks of seclusion after Wards death.The 43-year-old NASCAR superstar acknowledged the investigation was long and emotionally difficult but noted it allowed time for all the facts to be presented.This has been the toughest and most emotional experience of my life, and it will stay with me forever. Im very grateful for all the support Ive received and continue to receive, he said. While much of the attention has been on me, its important to remember a young man lost his life. Kevin Ward Jr.s family and friends will always be in my thoughts and prayers.David Weinstein, a former state and federal prosecutor in Miami who is not involved in the case, said the toxicology evidence will make it difficult for the Wards to win a lawsuit against Stewart. He said the Ward statement showed the family was clearly upset and at a vulnerable point.Hopefully, someone will explain to them that Kevin will be dragged through the mud during a civil trial, he said. After the results of the toxicology report and the findings of the grand jury, the deep pockets will not be willing to settle this lawsuit so quickly.The decision came nearly seven weeks after Stewarts car struck and killed Ward, sending shock waves through the top racing series in the United States. The brash and popular NASCAR driver known as Smoke skipped three races as he grieved, and returned to racing in late August. Anthony Castonzo Jersey. One of the biggest stars in the garage, Stewart has 48 career Cup wins in 542 starts but is winless this year and did not make the championship Chase field.Sheriff Philip Povero spent weeks investigating, several times saying he did not have evidence to suggest Stewart meant to harm the other driver.Authorities said the first car to pass Ward had to swerve to miss hitting him. The front of Stewarts car appeared to clear Ward, but Ward was struck by the right rear tire and hurtled through the air. He died of blunt force trauma.The sheriff asked in the days after Wards death for spectators to turn over photos and videos of the crash as investigators worked to reconstruct the accident. Among the things being looked at were the dim lighting, how muddy it was and whether Wards dark firesuit played a role in his death, given the conditions.Tantillo also said two videos — one from a fan, the other from the tiny track in Canandaigua — had been examined and enhanced. The grand jurors were not considering whether anybody else was at fault, Tantillo said.However, I am sure from their deliberations and discussions that the fact that Kevin Ward was observed running basically down two thirds of the track, into a hot track, into the middle of other cars that were racing, played a big, big factor in their decision, he said. Realistically, I think judgment is probably the most important factor in this case.Stewart vowed to co-operate in the investigation but he did not testify before the grand jury. He issued a brief statement expressing deep sadness and then dropped off the radar, missing races at Watkins Glen, Michigan and Bristol before coming back for the Aug. 31 race at Atlanta.Stewarts peers were protective of him as questions emerged in the aftermath of the crash, and it pained them that Stewart was grieving in private and had cut off communication with so many of them. They welcomed him back in Atlanta, two CEOs from his top sponsors stood shoulder-to-shoulder with him before the race in a sign of support, and fans gave him a robust cheer, too.NASCAR spokesman Brett Jewkes said there were no winners in the accident and expressed support for Wards family and Stewart. Current Chase leader and 2012 NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski tweeted after the marijuana disclosure: Cant believe what Im reading about Tony Stewarts case. Why didnt they release this sooner?!?!After Wards death, NASCAR announced a rule that prohibits drivers from climbing out of a crashed or disabled vehicle — unless it is on fire — until safety personnel arrive. The series also cleared the way for Stewart to make its Chase for the Sprint Cup championship with a win, despite missing the three races.Stewart, who is from Columbus, Indiana, has long been one of the most proficient drivers in racing, winning in every kind of series, from sprint cars to the elite Sprint Cup Series. He has for years taken part in little races in nondescript towns because he loves the thrill of the high horsepower, lightweight cars skidding around the dirt.He rarely made his schedule public, popping up when he pleased, and he was welcome at the clay track at Canandaigua Motorsports Park the night before the NASCAR race in nearby Watkins Glen.___Fryer reported from Charlotte, North Carolina.
