The Rays cut the lead to 3-1 when Dickerson scored on another wild pitch.Dickerson opened the fifth inning with another double and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Bobby Wilson.

LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Wholesale Jerseys Online . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers is proud to have a stat line like he had Wednesday night in any arena.Twenty-five points, 7 for 10 from 3-point range and 9 of 12 from the field.But a trip home where his high school jersey was retired Tuesday night was made even more special with an outstanding performance that helped push the Clippers to a 113-108 victory over the Orlando Magic.Rivers estimated he had about 15 to 20 family members and friends in attendance at Amway Center.Its great to have a good game anywhere but Id be lying to you if I said that its a little bit more fun to do it here, said Rivers, who starred at Winter Park High School before going on to Duke. Thats for sure.Rivers, coming off missing a game due to the NBA concussion protocol, made his biggest long-range shot with 2:18 left to give the Clippers a nine-point lead that proved too much for Orlando to overcome.We needed every basket, said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, Austins father. We were laughing and saying he needs to get hit in the head more. He was terrific.With forward Luc Mbah a Moute out with a shoulder injury, Doc Rivers went with a three-guard lineup that included Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Austin. The Clippers gave up more than usual on defense with the smaller lineup, but they made up for it with explosiveness.The trio combined for 51 points while also keeping the Magic on their heels all night. All five Clippers starters scored in double figures.It just allows us to play at a different pace, said Paul, who finished with 16 points and four assists. We played a little faster but it just means we have to scrap. We may give up a little bit but when we are all small like that we have a lot of guys who can score.The Magic at times were able to overpower the Clippers smaller lineup. It ccertainly worked for Aaron Gordon, who had one of his better all-around games with a game-high 33 points and seven rebounds.dddddddddddd But defensively, Orlando couldnt keep up and as result fell to 4-9 at home this season.Were doing the best we can to manage the slippage without practice time and its not good enough, said Magic coach Frank Vogel. The smaller lineups are hurting us with our ability to contest and use our size.HACK-A-JORDANIn effort to slow the Clippers offense down, the Magic turned to an often used strategy in the third quarter. They intentionally fouled Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan, who has been a poor free throw shooter.It allowed the Magic to outscore the Clippers by nine points in the period but it didnt produce the desire results because Jordan converted 11 of 16 free throw attempts during that two-minute stretch late in the third quarter, which included six straight at one point.Jordan finished the night with 22 points, which included 12 of 18 from the free throw line.Hes over 50 percent so we dont mind it anymore, Doc Rivers said.TIPS-INSClippers: Small forward Luc Mbah a Moute was held out with a right shoulder injury.Magic: Center Nikola Vucevic missed his third straight game with a sore back. ...
