CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Jay Bruce had hit the ball hard twice, only to see the worst slump of his career get deeper. Wholesale Vikings Jerseys China . He finally ended it with a hit that nobody was going to take away. Bruce emerged from his 0-for-26 skid with a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, rallying Mat Latos and the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2. Bruce flied out to the wall in centre field and lined out to centre earlier in the game, so he took a little confidence into his game-changing at-bat. "I knew I wasnt going to go 0-for-my-career," Bruce said. "Id been making hard contact. I really didnt feel like I was 0-for-so-much." The Reds gained a game on the NL Central leaders by taking two of three in their series, moving to six back. Cincinnati has won 10 of 15 overall. "That could have easily gone the other way," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "We really didnt want to lose ground on this team." The Brewers have lost five of six but still have the NLs best record and a comfortable lead. Bruce hit a two-run shot with one out off left-hander Will Smith (1-2), who took over for Yovani Gallardo. Smith hadnt allowed a homer to a left-handed batter all season, holding them to a .143 average. The matchup with the slumping Bruce seemed to favour Milwaukee in every way. "Its a crazy game," Bruce said. "You cant be surprised by anything that happens in the game of baseball." Smith got ahead 1-2 in the count, then threw a fastball that was up. Bruce pulled it to right field, the part of Great American Ball Park closest to the Ohio River. "Hes given a lot of people trouble," Price said of Smith. "He made a mistake. You do that and hes going to hit the ball in that creek out there." A replay review overturned Ramon Santiagos inside-the-park homer in the Reds second. A fan reached his mitt onto the field and hit right fielder Logan Schafers glove as he tried to catch the fly ball in front of the wall. The umpires initially ruled the ball in play, and Santiago circled the bases as Schafer and the ball fell to the ground. Following a 3-minute, 46-second review, Santiago was ruled out because of the fans interference. Latos (2-1) allowed two runs and four hits in a season-high eight innings. Jonathan Broxton pitched the ninth for his sixth save in eight chances. Closer Aroldis Chapman wasnt available because he slightly pulled a hamstring while running in the outfield before the game. Both teams were missing stars. Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was sidelined by a stiff back that forced him to leave Saturdays game. Manager Ron Roenicke said the problem doesnt appear to be series. Reds first baseman Joey Votto got a day to rest his bothersome left leg. Votto missed 23 games with a strained muscle above his left knee and has batted .250 without a homer since his return. The muscle isnt expected to heal fully until after the season. Latos made his fifth start since recovering from torn knee cartilage and a strained pitching forearm that sidelined him until June 14. He let a 2-0 lead slip away. Schafer tripled and scored on Scooter Gennetts groundout in the sixth. Schafer also doubled off Latos with two outs in the eighth and came around on Rickie Weeks pinch-hit single, making Latos smack his glove in frustration. In his last three starts, Latos has allowed a total of four runs in 22 innings, showing hes fully recovered from the injuries. Devin Mesoraco had three hits, including an RBI single in the first inning off Gallardo, who gave up two runs in seven innings. Gallardo was coming off his worst start of the season: 10 hits, eight runs in five innings of a 10-4 loss to Colorado last Sunday. He settled in after a rough first inning. Bruce grounded into a forceout that drove in a run, and Mesoracos single made it 2-0. NOTES: The Brewers open a seven-game homestand against Philadelphia and St. Louis on Monday. Marco Estrada (7-5) faces Cole Hamels (2-5). The Reds continue their homestand with the start of a five-game series against the Cubs. Mike Leake (6-7), who has won his last three starts against Chicago, faces Edwin Jackson (5-8). ... The Reds put C Brayan Pena on the paternity list and called up C Tucker Barnhart for his third stint this season. ...

Both sides came closest to scoring in the first half, when Roma had a goal from Mattia Destro waved off for offside and Inters Rodrigo Palacio headed high. "A draw was a fair result. Neither squad had many chances," Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic said.CHICAGO - Matt Forte had nowhere to go for much of the night. He was surrounded every time he touched the ball for the Chicago Bears.While Forte struggled for the second straight week, DeMarco Murray found plenty of room to run for the Dallas Cowboys.Forte managed just 26 yards on 13 carries in Chicagos 41-28 loss on Thursday. He also had eight receptions for 74 yards, but most of those gains occurred with the game out of hand in the final quarter.Lack of execution, Forte said when asked about the stymied running game. You know, it would be a missed block here, or blocking the wrong person there. Its many things.Forte matched a career low with five carries for 6 yards in last Thursdays 34-17 at Detroit. The Bears (5-8) have rushed for just 140 yards in their last three games.We tried to run the football, Chicago coach Marc Trestman said. They certainly were making every attempt to stop the run. There were some run blitzes and some edge blitzes, just to try to knock us off. We missed a couple of blocks along the way, but it was evident.While Forte had few noticeable running lanes, Murray scampered through huge holes on his way to a season-high 179 yards on 32 carries. The dynamic running back also had a team-high nine receptions for 49 yards.Murray put Dallas in front with a 1-yard TD run on fourth-and-goal with 10:50 left in the second quarter. He had 114 yards rushing in the second half alone.I pride myself on starting fast and finishing strong, said Murray, who leads the NFL with 1,606 yards on the ground.Joseph Randle added a 17-yard touchdown run in the third quarter for the Cowboys (9-4), who scored 28 straight points to open a 35-7 lead heading into the final period. Tony Romo was 21 for 26 for 205 yards and three touchdowns.Jay Cutler was 32 of 46 for 341 yards and two touchdowns for Chicago, which has lost five of seven. Martellus Bennett had a career-high 12 receptions for 84 yards and a TD, and Alshon Jefferyy finished with six grabs for 95 yards and a score. Danielle Hunter Jersey. Brandon Marshalls juggling 42-yard reception set up Bennetts 12-yard score in the second quarter. But Marshall departed with injured ribs after he took a knee to his right side from Barry Church following a big fourth-down reception on the same drive.Marshall left Soldier Field in an ambulance, but a post to his Twitter account thanked fans for their prayers and said he was good.Its a big loss, said Forte, who had a 1-yard TD run and a 2-point conversion in the fourth. Guys got to step up in his place and play, but you know you cant replace a guy like Brandon like that. He was having a good game, too.The Bears got the ball to begin the second half, but Forte lost a fumble and Romo turned the mistake into a 24-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley. He then passed to a wide-open Gavin Escobar for a 6-yard score with 8:02 left in the third, increasing Dallas lead to 28-7.The Cowboys stopped a three-game slide against the Bears, including losses in each of the previous two seasons. They also played a night game at Soldier Field last December, with Forte helping the Bears to a 45-28 victory on a brutally cold Monday.Dallas was coming off a 33-10 loss to Philadelphia on Thanksgiving, and it faces the division-leading Eagles again next Sunday in Philadelphia.Its definitely important to come back and get a W, especially after the loss we had last week, said Beasley, who also had a 13-yard touchdown reception late in the first half. Thats the main thing we wanted to do tonight, except we wanted to do it in a little better fashion. We didnt finish as strong as we wanted to.NOTES: The Bears also lost S Chris Conte to a back injury in the third quarter. ... Jay Feely, who signed with Chicago on Wednesday, handled the kicking duties after Robbie Gould was sidelined by a right quadriceps injury.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
