MIAMI -- Steve Cishek said he felt fine even though he pitched poorly. Anthony Chickillo Jersey . The Miami Marlins closer rubbed his left shoulder several times between pitches during a dismal ninth inning Friday night, but he declined to blame any health issues after giving up four runs in a 9-5 loss to the Oakland Athletics. "I just didnt get the job done," Cishek (4-3) said. The right-hander retired only two batters while giving up five hits, including a single by Yoenis Cespedes that scored the go-ahead run thanks to a replay reversal. The Marlins trailed 4-0 but took a 5-4 lead into the eighth. They fell to 28-1 when leading after seven innings. With the score 5-all, Coco Crisp singled off Cishek to start the ninth and took second on Alberto Callaspos single. When Cespedes followed with a single, right fielder Giancarlo Stanton made a strong throw home, and Crisp was ruled out at the plate. After a review that took 3 1/2 minutes, the called was overturned, giving the As a 6-5 lead. Josh Donaldson hit a sacrifice fly for his third RBI, and Stephen Vogt and Josh Reddick followed with run-scoring singles. "With Crisp, that was a great job of hitting by him," Cishek said. "For some reason, things just unraveled after that. I thought I made good pitches, but once it got later the pitches stayed up, the slider was flat, and they were very comfortable." Cisheks ERA rose from 1.93 to 2.97. "It just wasnt his night tonight," manager Mike Redmond said. "He has been so good for us." Reddick had three of the Athletics 16 hits, including a two-out RBI triple that tied the game in the eighth. Luke Gregerson (2-1) pitched around a one-out double by Jeff Mathis in a scoreless eighth. Oaklands Jesse Chavez took a 4-0 lead into the sixth but couldnt get another out. Stantons leadoff single was the first of five consecutive hits, and Donovan Solano greeted Dan Otero with an RBI double before pinch-hitter Jeff Bakers run-scoring single put Miami ahead. Stanton, Casey McGehee and Garrett Jones had two hits apiece for the Marlins, who lost despite going 6 for 10 with runners in scoring position. Marlins rookie right-hander Anthony DeSclafani left the game after three innings with a bruised right forearm, putting further strain on a bullpen already taxed by a 14-inning loss at Philadelphia on Thursday. DeSclafani was hit in the arm by a line drive in the first inning by Brandon Moss that went for an infield hit, and his status is day to day. He said he expects to be able to throw on the side Saturday. He allowed two runs in three innings, leaving him with an ERA of 7.40 after five career starts. The Marlins arrived in Miami at 4:15 a.m. after the 14-inning loss at Philadelphia on Thursday, and they played as if short on sleep in the early going. They had Crisp picked off midway between first and second in the fourth inning, but when first baseman Jones glanced at another baserunner, Crisp ducked past him and got back to first. "Thats two pretty tough losses," Redmond said. "Thats pretty frustrating the way weve been losing games." NOTES: With the Marlins bullpen taxed by the marathon in Philadelphia, they recalled LHP Brian Flynn as a reinforcement and optioned INF Justin Bour to New Orleans. Flynn pitched three innings and allowed two runs, then was optioned back to New Orleans after the game. ... Callaspo batted second for the first time this season. ...

"It is exciting that our Canadian athletes are starting to arrive at the Games Village," said Chantal Petitclerc, Canadas Chef de Mission.CHICAGO -- New coach Frank Yallop believes the Chicago Fire "with a bit of tinkering, is a good squad." A defensive specialist who coached San Jose to a pair of MLS Cup championships a decade ago, Yallop, from Vancouver, was hired Thursday to replace the Frank Klopas. He was fired Tuesday after New York eliminated the Fire from the MLS playoff race for the third time in the last four seasons. "I think the nucleus of this squad is good," Yallop said after agreeing to a multi-year contract. "Its making sure I get the best out of the guys I have and adding some players I feel will enhance the team I already have." Fire owner Andrew Hauptman made the decision to fire Klopas and managing director Javier Leon, the teams general manager, in the wake of Sundays 5-2 loss to New York, though he admitted the move was being considered for some time. Klopas and Leon had worked together in the front office since 2008, Klopas taking over as coach after Carlos de los Cobos was fired early in the 2011 season. "Its the body of work," Hauptman said. "Weve had six years of leadership. I didnt take the situation lightly. Frank and Javier put their heart and soul into the club. It was time for a change." The Fire finished 14-13-7, with 51 points, identical to Montreal, but missed the playoffs on goal differential. They made the playoffs last season but lost to Houston in the first round. Yallop, the MLS coach of the year in 2012, was fired by San Jose after the Earthquakes started the 2013 season 3-6-6. They rebounded after Mark Watson took over, but like the Fire, missed the MLS playoffs on a points tiebreaker. Terry Bradshaw Jersey. "I wouldnt say it was a parting of the ways, but it was the best thing for both parties," Yallop said. Chicagos last Eastern Conference Final appearance was in 2009. The Fire has missed the playoffs three times in the last four seasons. That was too often for Hauptman, a Los Angeles-based businessman who bought the team in 2007. "I wont shy away from wanting to compete," Hauptman said. "But its important to show patience as well." He did that through several coaching changes, from Denis Hamlett to de los Cabos to Klopas. Leon has headed the front office since 2008, shortly after Hauptman bought the team. Hauptman said he wanted to move quickly so Yallop can take over control of soccer operations. "We can have a seamless transition," Hauptman said. Yallop will meet with his players early next week. "This team has always been difficult to play against," said Yallop, when San Jose was 1-0-2 against the Fire in its last three MLS matches when he coached. The 49-year-old Yallop was 117-107-84 in 11 seasons with San Jose and the Los Angeles Galaxy. He also coached the Canadian national team, leading it to the third round of qualifying for the 2006 World Cup. The Earthquakes won the MLS Cup in 2001, his first season in charge, when he also picked up the first of his two coach of the year awards. The Earthquakes beat the Fire for the 2003 MLS Cup, his second title in three seasons. A defender, he played for Ipswich Town in the English League for 13 years, joining Tampa Bay of the MLS in 1996. Internationally, made 52 appearances with Canada. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
