Defense, pitching and home games have been sources of irritation for the St. Louis Cardinals.But hitting homers can cover a multitude of sins, and St. Louis is currently in position for its sixth straight postseason berth because it continues to crush the ball over the wall.As the Cardinals start a three-game series Tuesday night with the New York Mets at Busch Stadium, theyll do so having belted a National League-high 173 homers, including 26 in their last 12 games.Only Baltimore (192) and Toronto (179) have drilled more homers than St. Louis, and both have the advantage of playing their home games in hitters parks.Its not the only way we can score runs, but its our main way, Cardinals first baseman Brandon Moss said. Weve got a lot of guys in the lineup that can do a lot of damage, and it puts some stress on pitchers. Its nice to have guys in the lineup who can change a game like that.Moss has done more than any St. Louis hitter to change games with the long ball, even though he missed nearly a month with a sprained ankle. In just 290 at-bats, Moss has cracked 23 homers, his latest on Sunday in a 9-0 win at Philadelphia.The Cardinals recorded four homers in that game, including their 14th pinch-hit blast of the year by Jeremy Hazelbaker in the eighth inning. That tied the all-time MLB record and capped a 6-3 road trip that gave St. Louis (66-57) a 1 1/2-game lead over Miami for the NLs second wild-card spot.However, the Cardinals play their next six games at home, where they are only 28-33 this year. That might provide a glimmer of hope for New York, which needs all the positives it can get at this point.At 62-62, the defending NL champs are 4 1/2 games behind St. Louis and need at least a series win, if not a sweep. They are coming off a series split in San Francisco, thanks to a 2-0 win on Sunday night.If youre going to win, your good players have to play good. We ride those guys, Mets manager Terry Collins said. Hopefully, this is the start of what we want to do.The series opener pits left-handers on the mound as the Cardinals trot out Jaime Garcia (10-8, 4.11 ERA) against Jonathon Niese (8-7, 5.30).Garcia has won his last three starts, although he was propped up by the offense in an 8-5 decision on Aug. 16 in Houston, allowing five runs in five-plus innings. His only outing against New York earlier this year resulted in a 3-1 loss on July 26 in the nightcap of a doubleheader.Niese has faced St. Louis three times this season while pitching for Pittsburgh, going 1-1 and allowing 13 runs off 24 hits in 16 innings. He absorbed a 13-5 defeat Wednesday night at Arizona in his first start with the Mets.In an appealing matchup Wednesday night, the Cardinals Carlos Martinez (11-7, 3.24 ERA) faces Jacob deGrom (7-6, 2.73). Adam Wainwright (9-7, 4.71) will pitch Thursday nights series finale for St. Louis against a starter to be determined, as Steven Matz will skip his turn after being diagnosed with a left shoulder strain on Monday.

The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. http://www.oldskoolcomprar.es/vans-slip-on.html . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. Air Max 2018 Mujer . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Vans Old Skool Verde . -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays, Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times. OMAHA, Neb. -- So much for a double take.The Litherlands left everyone seeing triple at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.Jay, Kevin and Mick are 20-year-old triplets who competed in Omaha over the past week. While Jay was the only one to earn a spot in Rio, theyll all be there in spirit.All for one, Jay said.The Litherlands produced one of the most indelible moments at the trials when Jay rallied on the freestyle leg of the 400-meter individual medley to stunningly pass defending Olympic champion Ryan Lochte for the second spot on the team behind winner Chase Kalisz.As soon as they saw the 2 beside their brothers name, Kevin and Mick hopped over a railing at the CenturyLink Center to congratulate him. Jay popped out of the water, the three of them embracing on the deck, before Jay jumped back into the pool, unsure if he was breaking some sort of rule.No worries there.Hes headed to the Olympics.Once I saw them, I just started crying, Jay recalled at the end of the trials. It was amazing to share that experience with them.Jay will be able to go home to Georgia for a few days, and then he hits the road again with the U.S Olympic team for its training camps in San Antonio and Atlanta.He will likely be away from his brothers for at least a month, longer than theyve ever been apart.Its always kind of different when Im not with my brothers at a meet, Jay said, a bit of trepidation in his voice.The triplets were born in Japan. Their mother, Chizuko, is from that country, while their father, Andrew, is a chef from New Zealand. The family settled in the United States when the boys were about 3 years old, and theyre now citizens of all three countries.While impossible for many to tell apart on dry land, Jay has clearly pulled ahead of his brothers in the pool. He was the first to earn a spot on the U.S. national team, which meant that was the only country he could swim for at the Olympics.Mick and Kevin couldve competed for either Japan or New Zealand. Their fathers country was the best hope, but the brothers werent quite fast enough to be selected for the New Zealand team.They were still able compete at the U.S. trials with their brother, but Jay was the only one with a legitimate shot to make the worlds most powerful swimming team.In addition to his stunner in the 400 individual medley, he also qualified for the final of the 200 IM and finished fifth. He was competitive in the 200 backstroke, as well, but withdrew from that event after the prelims to put his focus solely on the 200 IM.Kevin nearly qualified for the final of the 400 freestyle, missing the eighth spot by a mere 0.17 seconds. Mick was disqualified in the prelims of the 100 butterfly for a false start, and he was eliminated in the semifinals of the 200 fly.For Kevin and Mick, Jays success has provided plenty of motivation.Yeah, theres definitely a little jealousy, Kevin said. But thats only going to make us stronger.When the Litherlands are in the pool,, their coaches can easily tell them apart since they specialize in different events.dddddddddddd Out of the water, the brothers have some subtle differences as well.Mick is the father figure, the one who got his drivers license more than a year ahead of his brothers and often served as their chauffeur. Kevin is the straightforward one, the guy who always says exactly whats on his mind. Jay is considered the most free-spirited of the bunch, always going along for the ride.That may have something to do with how they entered the world. Kevin was born first, followed by Mick and Jay. Kevin and Mick are identical, while Jay is fraternal.Its weird how similar people think they look when they first see them, said Gunnar Bentz, a good friend and fellow Georgia swimmer who also made the Olympic team. But after like six months of knowing them, you really start to be able to tell. Their bodies are all a little bit different, their faces are all slightly different.Not that most people can tell.In high school, they tried to use that to their advantage.We actually got DQed from a meet because of that, Jay said with a sheepish grin. I think Mick was sick or something and he couldnt go, so I tried to swim his events. But they found out.At the University of Georgia, where all three are pursuing business degrees while competing for the schools powerful swimming program, Mick and Kevin are roommates, while Jay rooms separately with Bentz.But the triplets are never far apart.Im always over there, Jay conceded.Thats not surprise. Even after their family moved to a bigger house, one that had enough bedrooms for each of them to have their own, the brothers continued to room together until they were 16. They never wanted to spend too much time apart.Theyre best friends, said Andrew Litherland, their father. Theyre so lucky to have each other. To get up in the morning and say, `Hey, get out of bed, lets go. Or say, `Hey, weve got to get to bed early, weve practice in the morning.The triplets seriously considered going to different colleges, wondering if it was time to branch out on their own.In the end, they all wound up at Georgia.They committed one at a time, remembered their college coach, Jack Bauerle, with a 15-minute break in between.Kevin and Mick want to be in Rio with their brother, but they arent sure if theyll be able to go. Tickets and hotel rooms are hard to come by, and theyd have to miss a significant amount of class time heading into their junior years at Georgia.Besides, they plan on competing together at the Tokyo Olympics four years from now.All for one, you know.This is only the beginning, Jay said. Im looking forward to going with them in 2020.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 . His work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/paul-newberry .
