MIAMI -- Pittsburgh Pirates rookie Gregory Polanco had five hits Friday night, and the last one was the biggest -- and the longest. Reggie Sanders Jersey . Playing in his fourth major league game, Polanco broke a tie in the 13th inning with his first homer, helping Pittsburgh to an 8-6 victory over the Miami Marlins after the Pirates had a ninth-inning meltdown. Polanco went 5 for 7, scored three times and made a run-saving catch in right field. "That could have been a coming-out party for him," manager Clint Hurdle said. "Very exciting to watch. I hope we get to watch for a long time." Clint Barmes singled off Mike Dunn (5-4) to start the 13th and advanced on a sacrifice. Polanco homered on a hanging 2-2 slider and smacked his hands as he circled the bases, mindful his mother was in the stands watching him for the first time since he played winter league in his native Dominican Republic. "For sure this is my best game ever -- the first time shes here watching me play," Polanco said. "I was excited and a little emotional. Shes so proud of me, and I know shes feeling excited right now." Jeanmar Gomez (1-2) pitched four scoreless innings after the Pirates blew a 6-2 lead in the ninth when three relievers combined to issue six walks. The Pirates Jeff Locke pitched a career-high eight innings, and the bullpens wildness cost him his first victory since Sept. 12. Miami trailed 6-5 and had runners at first and third with two out in the ninth when Hurdle ordered NL home run and RBI leader Giancarlo Stanton intentionally walked. The strategy backfired when Casey McGehee fell behind 0-2, and then walked against Mark Melancon to tie the game. Melancon struck out Marcell Ozuna to send the game to the 10th. "You rip off the rearview mirror and keep playing," Hurdle said. The Marlins stranded three in the ninth and two in the 12th. "The game was there for the taking at the end," McGehee said. "It was unfortunate we couldnt quite finish it off." Pittsburghs Sterling Marte homered and tied a career high with four hits. Ike Davis added a two-run double, and the top four hitters in the Pirates order went 13 for 27. The Pirates have won seven consecutive series openers, and on Saturday they have a chance to reach .500 for the first time since mid-April. Miamis Nathan Eovaldi pitched as though he was more worried about his wifes delivery than his own, which was understandable. Their first child is due, which left Eovaldis status in doubt until game time, and he allowed 10 hits and six runs in 4 2-3 innings. Stanton hit his 18th home run. Rafael Furcal, making his season debut after being sidelined by injuries since 2012, turned two double plays at second base but went 0 for 6. Locke, making his second start since right-hander Gerrit Cole went on the disabled list, allowed two runs, seven hits and no walks. The left-hander said he was encouraged by his performance. "Its huge," he said. "Anytime you give this team a chance to win, it makes you feel good. Thats what Ive always tried to do through the struggles and the successes. It builds a lot of confidence moving forward." Locke made the NL All-Star team last year but pitched poorly the second half of the season and has spent most of this season in Triple-A.

On Saturday night, Winnipegs strong offense was again accompanied by some fantastic pitching which gave the Fish a commanding victory. Dave Concepcion Jersey . But its also a smart game. Theres more to the Kings than banging bodies. They take a toll mentally on their opponents. http://www.redsapparelsshop.com/anthony-desclafani-jersey-c-21/ . That was OK with him. He was just happy his team came away with two points. Letestu redirected Jack Johnsons shot from the point with 2:38 left, lifting the Blue Jackets past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Monday night.WINNIPEG -- Carey Price didnt want to hear praise after his first shutout of the season. Too bad, because there was plenty to go around from his teammates. Price made 36 saves as Montreal beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-0 on Tuesday. Canadiens captain Brian Gionta said the win only happened because of their goaltender. "We had a great start, but the second and third (periods) we kind of laid back a little too much," said Gionta, who played his 700th career game after he missed the last game to attend to family matters in Montreal. "They adjusted to us and kind of took it to us and we relied on Carey the last two periods, and Carey basically won that game for us." Brandon Prust, P.K. Subban and Daniel Briere, with an empty-netter on the power play, scored for Montreal (4-2-0), which extended its winning streak to three games and ended a four-game road trip. "The last couple games, (Price has) been our best player," winger Rene Bourque said. "We need him to do that. Its great to see." The victory marked Prices 20th career shutout. "Im not going to take all the credit for our wins," said Price. "Weve had a lot of sacrifices along the way. Different guys step up to the plate at different times, at different points during each of these four games. "We definitely put out a great effort tonight." Ondrej Pavelec faced 25 shots for the Jets (3-4-0), who were playing their third game of a six-game homestand. They host St. Louis on Friday. With a number of fans wearing Habs jerseys in the stands at MTS Centre, the visitors quickly opened the scoring. A Briere shot off the boards led to Prusts goal, as the puck bounced to him at the corner of the net and he poked it in behind Pavelec to make it 1-0 at 2:06. It took the Jets just under seven minutes to get their first shot on goal, a span that included their own power play, as the Habs kept most of the action in Winnipegs end. "We couldnt generate a whole lot," Winnipeg coach Claude Noel said. "We got some shots on net, they blocked a lot of shots. We didnt get enough through. We didnt get enough traffic and we struggled." Winnipeg killed off a penalty, but about a minute laater Subban blasted a one-timer past Pavelec at 11:28, his eighth point in six games. Chris Sabo Jersey. The shots on goal at that point were 7-1 for Montreal. The Jets finally turned it on during another power play, boosting their shots on goal to close Montreals advantage to 10-8 at the end of the first period. Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty fell to the ice during the first period after getting tangled between a couple of Jets players on the way to the net. He didnt put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the ice and didnt return. The Jets kept pace with the Habs in the scoreless second period and took the lead in shots on goal 21-19, but Noel said the numbers can be deceiving. "When you look at the scoring chances for our team, (Price) saw a lot of pucks," he said. "He was able to get it stopped quickly, just clear shots to the net. So either were not getting there or were not getting shots through." Despite quickly starting the third period shorthanded, Winnipeg had some early scoring chances, including two by captain Andrew Ladd, although on one he bobbled the puck. Noel kept the same lines he did in Sundays 3-0 win over New Jersey, which saw Ladd move from the top line to the second one with rookie centre rookie Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik. Evander Kane was on the top line with centre Bryan Little and right-winger Blake Wheeler, whom Noel said is trying, but not playing very well. Winnipeg went on the power play with seven minutes left in the game after Briere was called for hooking, but Price made one save and Ryan White blocked the other shot. With Pavelec pulled and the Jets shorthanded because of a Little cross-checking penalty, Briere scored his first of the season at 18:42. "Its unfortunate that it takes two goals to get a little desperation in our game," Jets captain Andrew Ladd said. "Youve got a find a way to get going right off the hop. I mean theres enough energy in this building to do that and to start the game with the right intentions." Notes -- The Canadiens return to Montreal for a five-game homestand. ... Habs defenceman Josh Gorges played in his 500th game and assisted on Subbans goal.
