DETROIT -- Torii Hunter noticed early on that something was amiss with Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore. Vince Dunn Jersey . "I saw him throw the curveball a couple times, and I saw that he didnt have a feel for that," Hunter said. "This guy has great stuff -- his changeup, his arm action is the same as the fastball, coming out of his arm. Just the fact that we were able to capitalize on his mistakes -- we have a professional team over here. They make the adjustments and battle at the plate." Prince Fielder homered and drove in four runs, and the Detroit Tigers handed Moore his first loss of the year with a 10-1 victory over the Rays on Tuesday night. Fielder also hit a two-run single that capped a four-run second inning for the Tigers. Moore got only six outs while allowing six runs, seven hits and six walks. Moore (8-1) was pitching on three days rest after his previous start in Cleveland was limited to one inning because of rain. "In the second inning, I just lost my release point. Thats happened before, and Ive got a couple tricks that I can use to get it back, but nothing worked today," Moore said. "I wasnt throwing anything close enough to the strike zone to make them swing at anything." Anibal Sanchez (6-5) allowed a run and four hits in seven innings. He struck out nine with one walk. Omar Infante homered and had three RBIs for Detroit, which won for the second time in seven games. It was Tampa Bays second loss in nine. Fielder and Jhonny Peralta had three hits each for the Tigers. The Rays got a run in the second to open the scoring, but Moore immediately allowed a single to Peralta and an RBI double to Matt Tuiasosopo in the bottom half. Infante made it 2-1 with a sacrifice fly, and after two-out walks to Hunter and Miguel Cabrera, Fielder singled with the bases loaded. "It was a great night," Tuiasosopo said. "He has some great secondary pitches -- a great changeup and curveball -- so we really wanted to just get after his fastball and not miss that when he threw it." The third inning wasnt any better for Moore. After a leadoff double by Peralta, he walked two straight hitters and then allowed an RBI single by Avisail Garcia. Moore was finally pulled after he walked Infante to force in a run and make it 6-1. Alex Torres came on with the bases loaded and nobody out, but he prevented any further damage by striking out Cabrera and Fielder to end the inning. Moore had allowed only 15 runs all season coming into the game. Sanchez, meanwhile, has also been impressive this year -- although he doesnt have Moores flashy won-loss record. Sanchez struck out 17 batters against Atlanta in April, and he had a no-hitter broken up in the ninth inning against Minnesota on May 24. After that 130-pitch outing, Sanchez was knocked around a bit in a loss at Pittsburgh last week. He had an extra day of rest before facing the Rays and looked sharp from the start. "No matter how many runs we score ... I dont want to allow any runs," Sanchez said. "If we make a lot of runs, the other team can do it, too, so we have to keep the same game." Evan Longoria led off the second with a triple to right-centre and scored on a sacrifice fly by Desmond Jennings, but Tampa Bays offence didnt threaten much after that. Infantes solo homer made it 7-1 in the fifth. The following inning, Cabrera went from first to third on a wild pitch when catcher Jose Molina was slow to come up with the ball back by the screen. Molina had his left arm checked after the play but stayed in the game. Fielder drove in Cabrera with a sacrifice fly, and his 12th homer of the season -- a solo shot in the eighth -- made it 9-1. Don Kelly added an RBI single later in the inning. NOTES: Tampa Bay announced after the game it had agreed to a minor league deal with C Jesus Flores. ... Hunters hitting streak ended at 11 games. ... Detroit RHP Doug Fister (5-2) faces Tampa Bay RHP Alex Cobb (6-2) on Wednesday night. Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. Doug Wickenheiser Jersey . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. http://www.wholesalebluesjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-doug-gilmour-jersey . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. Three games into his first season at Syracuse, coach Dino Babers is going through the customary growing pains as he puts his stamp on the program.The offense is grasping his fast-paced style, but the defense is depleted and has been torched for too many big plays in two blowout losses as the Orange prepare to hit the road for the first time this fall.I think were still in stages, Babers said. Theyre still getting to know me. I think as they get to know me well be more and more consistent.On Saturday at home in the Carrier Dome, Syracuse (1-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) built a 17-0 lead in a dominant first quarter against South Florida, outgaining the Bulls by nearly 100 yards. The other three quarters belonged to USF, which won 45-20 and again proved that statistics arent always a reliable barometer of what happened on the field.The Orange outgained the Bulls 549-456, had 30 first downs to the Bulls 20, held the ball for nearly 38 minutes, and ended up tying the ACC record for most plays in a game with 105, a school record.Like the previous week, a 62-28 loss to rising Louisville and quarterback Lamar Jackson, Syracuse was repeatedly hit hard and fast by the Bulls. South Florida had four scoring drives under two minutes in the second quarter against a defense missing three quarters of its starting secondary (Antwan Cordy and Juwan Dowels, who were both injured against Louisville, are out for the season with injuries, and Kielan Whitner also sat out).On offense, the difference between the old Syracuse and the new is striking. Last year under Scott Shafer, Syracuse averaged 62.6 plays per game. In three games under Babers, Syracuse is averaging 93, or one play for every 20.8 seconds of possession time. Syracuse leadds the ACC and ranks 10th nationally in passing offense (360 yards per game), sophomore quarterback Eric Dungey leads the conference and ranks fifth nationally in completions per game (30. Joe Mullen Jersey. 33), and wideouts Ervin Philips (10) and Amba Etta-Tawo (9.3) rank 2/3 nationally in receptions per game.Gaudy numbers to be sure, but when they dont lead to victories it becomes a more difficult road for the coaching staff. Especially when most of the hometown fans -- Syracuse is averaging just under 32,000 in a building that holds 49,000 -- are long gone midway through the fourth quarter, as they have been the past two games.Ive been down in spirit. I really have, Babers said Monday. The tough thing when you make a transition like this is they have no idea how close they are. All they do is, `Hey, were 1-2, when are we going to get a win? They look at themselves not in a good light.I dont think were as bad as the Louisville game, Babers said. I see us as good as that first quarter against South Florida, but weve got to find a way to be consistently good, not occasionally good. Weve got to find a way to carry that all the way through.The Orange travels to player former Big East rival Connecticut (2-1) on Saturday. The Huskies are 2-0 at home.Were in the beginning stages because of where we started from, said Babers, who left Bowling Green for the Orange. I said it would be the toughest transition Ive ever had. Its a huge transition. As we grow together, well get better and better at it.---AP College Football Website: www.collegefootball.org---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 Wholesale Authentic JerseysWholesale NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticCheap Jerseys 2018Cheap Nike NFL JerseysWholesale Jerseys 2020Jerseys From China ' ' '
