ST. Cheap Cardinals Jerseys . LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals ended their offensive slump, but the Kansas City Royals found a way to keep the National League champs down. Eric Hosmer hit a tiebreaking single off closer Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth inning and the Royals won 8-7 Tuesday night for their second straight road victory in the four-game, two-city series. "It was a great game back and forth, a lot of clutch hits by both teams," said Alex Gordon, who homered in both games. "It was good to see and hopefully we can build on this." Rookie Kolten Wongs first career home run was a grand slam in the second that ended the Cardinals 20-inning scoreless drought and gave them an early four-run cushion. Wong said it was the first grand slam hes hit at any level. "Its awesome," Wong said. "It was good to get us up early, try and give us a chance." The Cardinals finished a dismal 2-7 home stand when their pitchers faltered and fell to 30-29 overall. Before the game, manager Mike Matheny fielded an endless series of questions about the lack of hitting. Gordons three-run homer capped a six-run fifth for the Royals against Jaime Garcia that put them up by two. "We cant complain about what the offence did," Matheny said. "It just wasnt enough." Kansas City starter James Shields also scuffled, surrendering five earned runs in 5 1-3 innings, and has given up seven homers his last three starts. Shields helped himself with two hits, including an RBI double. "I was just kind of all over the place, really wasnt commanding my slider at all," Shields said. "I made three crucial bad pitches and thats what caused six runs." Peter Bourjos 422-foot homer put the Cardinals ahead 7-6 in the sixth. Alcides Escobars bloop RBI single off Pat Neshek tied it in the eighth, a rally fueled by pinch hitter Billy Butlers infield hit. Omar Infante doubled off Rosenthal (0-3) with one out in the ninth ahead of Hosmers hit. Wade Davis (5-1) allowed a hit in the eighth and Greg Holland worked the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances for the Royals, the home team for the last two games of intrastate interleague series that resumes Wednesday. "That was one of those grinder games, where youre grinding right from the get-go -- everybody," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "It was a great game." Jhonny Peralta added two doubles and an RBI for St. Louis, outscored 14-0 the previous two games by the Royals and Giants. Wong was chosen as the NL rookie of the month earlier Tuesday and his slam in the second was the Cardinals fifth hit in 10 at-bats against Shields. St. Louis loaded the bases in the first, too, but Yadier Molina grounded into an inning-ending double play on good glovework by Escobar at shortstop and capped by Infantes barehanded grab on the move at second and relay. The Royals had one runner in scoring position the first four innings, then batted around and hit for the cycle in the sixth to take the lead. Gordon homered for the second straight day, Escobar had an RBI triple and Shields had an RBI double with his second straight hit. No St. Louis relievers warmed up during the rally and Matheny said after the game a couple of pitchers had been unavailable. "Im on the mound, Im trying to execute pitches until the manager takes the ball out of my hand," Garcia said. "Im not looking anywhere else." NOTES: Cardinals RHP Adam Wainwright (8-3, 2.32) opposes Jason Vargas (5-2, 3.39) on Wednesday night. Wainwright is 4-1 against the Royals and 9-5 overall in interleague play. Vargas has at least six strikeouts his last five starts, the longest such stretch of his career. ... Shields is the first Royals pitcher to get an RBI since Luis Mendoza May 29, 2013, at St. Louis. ... The Royals six-run inning tied their season best and tied the best against the Cardinals. ... Matt Holliday walked twice and has reached safely the first 30 home games. ... The Royals have played six games with new batting coach Dale Sveum, and have scored six or more runs in four of them. ... Escobars hit ended Nesheks career-best streak of 20 2-3 scoreless innings. ... Wong, the Cardinals 2B, said he jammed his shoulder a bit diving for Butlers infield hit in the eighth and might miss a game. Cheap Cardinals Jerseys China . -- Athletics manager Bob Melvin is already starting to run out of superlatives to describe Scott Kazmir. Cheap St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys . (AP) -- The head of the committee that developed Major League Baseballs plan to expand instant replay says he is optimistic the system will be in place this season, even though owners and unions for players and umpires have yet to approve.TORONTO - Taking a page from its Canadian division, the UFC has announced its full schedule for 2015 with 45 fight cards including three to five in Canada.There will be 13 pay-per-view shows and 32 televised Fight Night cards.Toronto, Montreal and Calgary were identified as target cities for Canada but no dates have been attached to those shows yet. The UFC didnt say which other Canadian cities might be considered although Hamilton, London, Moncton, Ottawa, St. Johns, Saskatoon and Windsor have all been touted as venues for possible future televised shows. Im excited to get back up in Canada, UFC Dana White told a news conference Monday in Las VegasIts the first time that the mixed martial arts promoter has announced its full schedule for the year. But its not a first for Canada.Tom Wright, managing director for UFC operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, has lobbied for releasing the schedule months in advance to make life easier for fans and business partners.The news is not cast in stone, however. Fighters get injured and some fight cards demand a higher profile than others as shown by the 2014 Canadian schedule.In January, the UFC announced a five-city 2014 schedule for Canada with pay-per-views shows in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver and Fight Night cards in Halifax and Quebec City.That turned out to be just three events when UFC 178 was shifted to Las Vegas from Toronto and the Montreal card was cancelled.In making the scheduling announcement in Las Vegas, with 14 elite fighters on stage, the UFC did not attach cities or fighters to the dates other than those already announced for the first two months of the year.Wright said in an interview that Toronto, Montreal and Calgary could all be pay-per-view shows. Toronto and Montreal have never hosted anything else. UFC 149 in Calgary in July 2012 was a somewhat cursed show with a string of injuries, prompting White to promise a top-quality make-up show at some point in the future.The Montreal date could be in March, with the UFC having a date reserved for that month at the Bell Centre. The UFC schedule calls for UFC 185 on March 14.Canada can expect to host a 2015 welterweight title bout featuring Rory MacDonald, a native of Kelowna, B.C., who now fights out of Montreal. White has already confirmed that MacDonald will meet the winner of the UFC 181 main event Dec. 6 between 170-pound champion Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks and (Ruthless) Robbie Lawler.Asked about Calgary as a possible site for the MacDonald title bout, White said: Possibly. Could happen. Makes sense. Montreal might make even more sense for MacDonald, who has said he would like to fight in Vancouver, given his druthers. The timing and host city could come down to how the 170-pound champion emerges from the Dec. 6 fight.Wright said the remaining two Canadian cities on the calendar would likely be new host cities.The UFC has held 17 shows in Canada, with stops in Calgary, Halifax, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The UFC said roughly half the 45 events will take place in the U.S., with six in Las Vegas. There will be seven events in Brazil (including at least one pay-per-view) and two in Mexico. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. There will be five to six events in Europe and the Middle East with Ireland, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom cited as target markets. Potential new markets are Poland, the Netherlands and Russia with a possible return to Abu Dhabi.There will be one or two events in Australia and a return to Asia for two or three events with China, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea identified as target markets.Of the non-pay-per view cards, 22 will be on TV and the other 10 on the UFCs Fight Pass web service.The televised shows will be on Fox, Fox 1 or Fox Sports 2 in the U.S. The UFC has yet to reveal details of its new TV deal in Canada — Sportsnet is the current rights-holder — but is expected to make an announcement in a week to 10 days.Featherweight contender Conor McGregor had plenty to say on stage Monday but former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre got more than a few mentions. The 33-year-old Montreal star is currently on hiatus from the sport and has yet to announce a return, although he is back training after a knee injury suffered during his absence.As soon as hes ready to fight, hell let us know, said White, who went to Montreal recently with UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta to meet St-Pierre. But Im very confident that hes coming back.St-Pierre told a different story. Asked about his fighting future, he said Im not sure in a text to The Canadian Press.The UFC boss had promised a separate major announcement Monday but said he had not been able to get it down in time.Nick Diaz, meanwhile, took a few potshots at St-Pierre after hearing that the Canadian thought he might be in trouble fighting at 185 pounds. The former Strikeforce champion, beaten by GSP at 170 pounds at UFC 158, takes on former middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 183 in January.Georges didnt take the (Silva) fight ...
