ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Joe Maddons voice cracked with emotion. The Tampa Bay Rays are mired in the second-longest skid in the major leagues this season, yet they suffered a much greater loss with the death of club senior adviser Don Zimmer. "We lost a good buddy tonight," Maddon, fighting back tears, said Wednesday following Tampa Bays ninth consecutive defeat, 5-4 to the Miami Marlins. "Im going to miss his advice ... his feistiness and fire. He was about winning, doing whatever it takes to win." Donovan Solano hit a three-run homer off David Price and closer Steve Cishek escaped a ninth-inning jam the help the Marlins hold on for their third straight win in a four-game home-and-home series between the intrastate rivals. Tampa Bays losing streak is the teams longest in nearly five years and is becoming more frustrating by the day. The Rays hit into three double plays for the second straight night, are 0-for-their-last 31 with runners in scoring position and will match the longest skid in the majors this season if they drop Thursdays series finale at Tropicana Field. Boston dropped 10 straight from May 15 to 25, with Tampa Bay handing them the last three losses in the streak. The Rays havent won since. But that wasnt the focal point in a sombre clubhouse following the game. Maddon said he learned of Zimmers death during the third inning and informed his coaches, but not the players. Word gradually spread through the dugout, where third-base coach Tom Foley was spotted weeping before slipping into Zimmers No. 66 jersey and wearing it for the remainder of the game in memory of the former player, coach and manager, whose career in baseball spanned more than 60 years. "The organization wanted to do it and it fell on me," Foley said. "Major League Baseball decided to have one of the coaches wear it. I was honoured to do it." Star third baseman Evan Longoria said Zimmer will be missed on and off the field. "Zim was a great man, and there are no words to explain what he brought to us and what he meant to me. Its just been a rough go for us, and this kind of is the icing on the cake, so to speak," Longoria said. "I know that he would want us to continue on and just honour him by doing all the things that he preached to us, playing the game the right way and playing the game hard. Going out there on a daily basis and really caring." Casey McGehee had an RBI single for the Marlins, who won 1-0 on Tuesday on a bases-loaded walk. The sputtering Rays, coming off an 0-8 trip that was the worst in team history, tumbled 14 games under .500 at 23-37 -- the second-worst record in baseball. The last time they were this far below the break-even point was the end of 2007, the final season they were called the Devil Rays. The team has made the playoffs as the Rays four of the past six seasons, but are in the midst of a horrendous offensive slump thats seen them bat .217 on the trip to Toronto, Boston and Miami and score 21 runs during their longest skid since dropping 11 straight in September 2009. Tom Koehler (5-5) pitched five innings for the Marlins, allowing three first-inning runs on Ben Zobrists two-run homer and a solo shot by Evan Longoria. Bryan Morris and Mike Dunn shut down the Rays over the next three innings, and Cishek earned his 13th save in 14 opportunities. The Rays loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth on an error, a high-bouncing bloop double and a walk, but only scored once. Cishek walked Longoria intentionally to reload the bases with two outs, then got James Loney to pop out to end the game. "It got a little hairy there at the end. Ive seen that happen here, at this place, the high choppers and the bloops," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Exactly how that ninth inning happened, Ive seen that a lot here," Redmond added. "But fortunately, Shek kept it together and was able to pitch through it, and got a couple big outs and locked down a win." Price (4-5) allowed five runs -- one earned -- and nine hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out 11 and walked none, but paid for Longorias third-inning error and gave up Solanos first home run of the season. After being limited to two runs over the last four games of their woeful trip, the first three batters scored against Koehler, who walked David DeJesus before giving up home runs to Zobrist and Longoria, who has just one other extra-base hit in his past 23 games. The Marlins rebounded with four unearned runs in the third, the first scoring when Longoria failed to hold onto the ball after fielding a grounder at third base and applying a tag on a sliding Marcell Ozuna for what should have been the final out of the inning. The miscue left Miami with runners at first and third. Solano hit his homer to left field on the next pitch for a 5-3 lead. NOTES: Tampa Bay OF Wil Myers, who will be in a cast for five to six weeks due to a stress fracture in his right wrist, is hopeful that the time off will also help a sore left wrist that he hurt early in the season. ...

Nike Air Max 90 Svart Herr . Many of those eyes are in the United States of America, a country that the sport has wanted on its side for some time.

They know how tight it is, Harbaugh said. They know what they have to do.The Texans (7-7) have a slim chance of reaching the playoffs, too, but would need to win both remaining games and for several teams to lose their last two.Theyll proceed with a fourth-string quarterback with Ryan Mallett (chest), Ryan Fitzpatrick (broken leg) and rookie Tom Savage (knee) all out with injuries. Coach Bill OBrien wont say who he plans to start between Thad Lewis and Case Keenum.We dont know who were going to play, Baltimore outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil said. All we can do is just kind of gather up film and try to prepare for everything ... so, its difficult. As difficult as it may seem for them, its difficult for us, too.But regardless of who OBrien picks, the Ravens will face a quarterback who hasnt appeared in a game this season — and who wasnt with the Texans when the season began.Because they dont know wholl start at quarterback, the Ravens are focused on slowing down Arian Foster, who is averaging 102.5 yards rushing a game.Keenum lost all eight games he started for Houston last season before being released in training camp. Lewis went 2-3 in five starts for Buffalo in 2013 before he was released in camp. The Texans plucked Keenum off the St. Louis practice squad this week and signed Lewis on Nov. 26 when Mallett was injured.These guys have stepped right in, and its really the philosophy in this league, that injuries happen and the next man up has to be ready to go, OBrien said.dddddddddddd Both guys are working really hard.Some things to know about the Ravens-Texans game:HOMECOMING: Sunday will be a homecoming for Baltimore offensive co-ordinator Gary Kubiak, who grew up in Houston and coached the Texans from 2006 until he was fired last year. Kubiak led the Texans to the only two playoff appearances in franchise history in 2011 and 2012.Many of the Texans are excited to see their former coach again, but Foster is looking forward to it more than most. Foster, an undrafted free agent, said hell always be thankful to Kubiak for giving him a shot in the NFL.CORNERED: The Ravens have five cornerbacks on injured reserve, which goes a long way toward explaining why they have the NFLs 30th-ranked pass defence. Six players have lined up at cornerback for Baltimore, which last week lost two defensive backs — CB Asa Jackson and safety Terrence Brooks — to knee injuries.WATT A SEASON: Houston defensive end J.J. Watt keeps adding to his impressive numbers. Watt had two sacks last Sunday to give him 16 1/2 this season, third in the NFL. He has 53 career sacks to tie the franchise record and needs 3 1/2 more to become the first player in NFL history with two seasons with 20 or more sacks; he had 20 1/2 in 2012. He has swatted down 10 passes, forced three fumbles and recovered five.Hes also scored on an interception return, a fumble return, and has grabbed three touchdown receptions.HOMECOMING, PART 2: Kubiak isnt the only Raven with ties to Houston. Veteran tight end Owen Daniels returns after spending the previous eight seasons with the Texans.Its going to be weird walking into that stadium, he said. It will be different being in there and coming out a different tunnel and all that stuff. But it will be good to see my old buddies that are still there.Daniels signed as a free agent with Baltimore in April.___AP Sports Writer David Ginsburg contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
