CINCINNATI -- Pat Hoberg is Ramon Cabreras lucky charm. Adidas NMD XR1 Norge .Hoberg was umpiring behind the plate last season when the Reds catcher hit his first career home run. Hoberg made it 2 for 2 on Thursday night. He was behind the plate when Cabrera hit a three-run homer in the second inning to lead Cincinnati to a 5-4 victory over the Miami Marlins.It was special for me, Cabrera said. I talked to the umpire. He said, `Do you remember who the umpire was when you hit your first home run off (John) Lackey? It was me.Dan Straily continued his second-half surge as Cincinnati made it eight wins in 10 series since the All-Star break.Billy Hamilton used aggressive baserunning to produce another run and Eugenio Suarez added an RBI double to give Cincinnati three straight wins over Miami after losing the opener of the four-game series.Straily (9-6) improved to 5-0 with a 2.68 ERA over his last six starts. He opened with five shutout innings before giving up Marcell Ozunas two-run homer in the sixth. Straily allowed six hits and struck out seven.It is a special year for Straily, Reds manager Bryan Price said. He is solidifying his career.Blake Wood turned in 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief before Raisel Iglesias pitched the ninth for his second career save in two opportunities.Marlins starter Jose Fernandez (12-7) allowed five runs in a season-low four innings -- as many runs as he gave up in his four June starts -- to see his ERA over his last four starts climb to 6.00. The Reds reached him for seven hits and a walk while sending him to a career-worst third consecutive loss. He previously had never lost more than two consecutive decisions.We took advantage of Fernandez strikes early in the count, but he throws it around 100, Price said. He looked like a million bucks, but we got the barrel on the ball.Obviously, (the Reds) were squaring a lot of stuff up, manager Don Mattingly said. Im not quite sure. I havent seen the replay of the pitches, but balls kind of at the belt line and in the center of the plate are going to get hit.Thursdays numbers were remarkably similar to Fernandezs last start in Cincinnati, on April 18, 2013, his rookie season, when he also allowed five runs in four innings.From there, things got better, he said. I hope they better this time, too.Fernandez finished with six strikeouts, pushing him over 200 for the first time in his career. With 204, he is the sixth Marlin to reach 200 in a season and first since Anibal Sanchez with 202 in 2011.Martin Prado capitalized on an error by pitcher Jumbo Diaz with a two-run single in the seventh.MOVING UP: Fernandezs six strikeouts on Thursday leave him with 204 on the season, the third-highest season total in Marlins history. He trails Kevin Brown (205, 1997) and record-holder Ryan Dempster (209, 2000).POWER SURGE: Ozunas home run was his 22nd of the season and third of the four-game series. He is one homer short of matching the career high he set in 2014.ON THE VERGE: Joey Votto needs one double to reach 300 in his career and four RBI to reach 700.TRAINING ROOMMarlins: RHP A.J. Ramos is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Friday. If he feels OK on Saturday, Mattingly expects to be able to activate him on Sunday. Ramos, 1-1 with a 3.05 ERA and 32 saves in 47 relief appearances this season, has been out since Aug. 6 with a fracture of the third finger of his right hand.Reds: Problems with his patella and Achilles tendons related to last years knee surgery are plaguing SS Zack Cozart, who didnt start on Thursday for the third time in the four-game series.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Tom Koehler (9-8) tries for his first win in five career starts against the Pirates when Miami opens a three-game series in Pittsburgh on Friday. He is 0-4 with a 5.73 ERA in his career against the Pirates.Reds: RHP Tim Adleman (1-1) is scheduled to make his first start since May 19 when the Reds open a four-game wraparound series against Los Angeles in Cincinnati. Adleman has been sidelined with a strained left oblique. Adidas Ultra Boost Dame Rosa .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. Yeezy Boost 350 Norge . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. http://www.nmdnorgeshop.com/adidas-nmd-r1-norge.html . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. PHILADELPHIA -- Jim Schwartz was triumphantly carried off the field the first time he returned to Detroit after being fired.Hell walk or jog this time.Schwartz meets his former team when the Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) visit the Lions (1-3) on Sunday. The defensive coordinator holds no grudges.I think you guys would probably be surprised how much I root for the Lions, Schwartz said Thursday. As long as its not in direct conflict with the Eagles, I want those guys to win every week. Ive got too much blood and sweat in that building, and theres a lot of guys there that mean an awful lot to me.Schwartz took over the Lions in 2009, a year after they finished 0-16. His first draft class included quarterback Matthew Stafford, tight end Brandon Pettigrew and linebacker DeAndre Levy.I want those guys to succeed, Schwartz said. Im going to do my very best to try to beat them, but I think everybody would be surprised how much you have relationships that just dont go away when you leave or a player leaves. Those guys have had my back when I coached there, and Ive had their back, and Im sure thatll continue. Not this Sunday, though.Schwartz led the Lions to 10 wins and their first playoff berth in 12 years in 2011. But he was fired after going 7-9 in 2013. He was Buffalos defensive coordinator in 2014 when the Bills beat Detroit 17-14 at Ford Field. That was an emotional return for Scchwartz, who got to ride off on the shoulders of two players. Adidas Ultra Boost Hvit Dame. ts all business this time.Ive been there, done that, Schwartz said. I think that (game) was probably a little bit different in that I probably had about 10 coaches that worked for me that were still on the staff. I mean, most of the team had played for me. Sure, thats going to be emotional. Youre not a human being if its not.The surprising Eagles are aiming to stay undefeated and Schwartzs defense is a big reason for the teams success. Schwartz has engineered a dramatic turnaround. A unit that ranked in the bottom five each of the past three seasons is third in total yards allowed and has given up just three touchdowns and two field goals in three games.Schwartz was given full control of the defense after coach Doug Pederson hired him in January. The Eagles brought in a few of his former players and made other moves to add talent.I dont think this was the worst defense in the NFL last year, but situation that came up, their numbers werent very good, Schwartz said. I think having an infusion of some new guys helped move them past that a little bit.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
