OAKLAND, Calif. -- Josh Donaldson performed like an All-Star, though hell be spending his break somewhere other than Citi Field New York. Donaldson homered, then blooped an RBI single with two outs in the 11th inning as the Oakland Athletics beat Boston 3-2 Sunday despite a stellar start by Red Sox rookie Brandon Workman. "I got jammed and was able to dink it in," Donaldson said. "It was awesome." He heads into the break hitting .310 with 16 home runs and 61 RBIs. Numbers only AL All-Star third basemen Miguel Cabrera and backup Manny Machado can rival. "In our hearts and minds hes an All-Star," As manager Bob Melvin said. "Not only did he knock in the winning run, he knocked in all three runs. Thats a pretty good first half but there was no room for him." Workman took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning of his first major league start. Coco Crisp broke it up with a leadoff infield single. He became the first Red Sox pitcher in 79 years to allow three or fewer baserunners in his first major league start. Workman had pitched in only one big league game, getting roughed up over two innings in relief at Seattle on Wednesday. He became the third rookie in four days to pitch no-hit ball into the sixth inning of his first big league start -- Houstons Jarred Cosart and Clevelands Danny Salazar did it in their major league debuts. Donaldson hit a two-run homer off Workman to tie it in the seventh, then singled with two outs in the 11th. Matt Thornton (0-4) lost in his Red Sox debut. "That was pretty much all I have right there," Donaldson said of his blast. "He made a mistake. I hit it hard." Ryan Cook (2-2) worked two innings for the victory. "Its kind of our motto since the end of last year to just keep grinding," Cook said. "We have a good feeling every day." Pinch-hitter Chris Young drew a leadoff walk in the Oakland 11th and moved up on a sacrifice. After a two-out walk, Donaldson singled to right field. "I know hes an aggressive hitter and hes looking to win the game right there," Thornton said. "Im looking to make a pitch down and in. I thought I made a pretty good pitch and he was able to fist it over there and drop it right in the perfect spot. If you dont walk the leadoff guy, that situation doesnt come around." Dustin Pedroia and Brock Holt each drove in a run for the Red Sox, who have not won a series in Oakland since July of 2006. Workman gave up two hits, walked one and struck out five in 6 1-3 innings. The 24-year-old righty was a combined 8-2 at Triple-A and Double-A this season. "He was very poised, very good mound presence, good composure," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "I thought he had very good stuff. He stayed out of the middle of the plate for most of the day, multiple pitches for strikes." All-Star Bartolo Colon gave up two runs on eight hits over 6 1-3 innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out four. The Oakland pitcher will not play in the All-Star game after starting Sunday. The Red Sox loaded the bases with two outs without benefit of a hit in the 11th before Cook caught Holt looking at a called third strike. Colon retired 14 in a row before giving up Ellsburys single leading off the sixth. After Daniel Nava singled, Pedroia followed with an RBI single to give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead. Mike Carp doubled to lead off the seventh and scored on Holts single, which ended Colons day. Jonny Gomes was ejected from the game after striking out to lead off the ninth. Gomes tried to call time, but it was not granted and he took a weak swing for the third strike. NOTES: Donaldson has 16 home runs, the most home runs by an As third baseman since Eric Chavez hit 26 in 2005. ... Oakland All-Star reliever Grant Balfour struck out the side in the ninth. ... Red Sox LHP Drake Britton was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket and OF Jackie Bradley Jr. was optioned to Pawtucket. ... Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz (9-0, 1.71) threw a second bullpen session before the game and will likely throw one more on Tuesday before making a rehab start. ... Red Sox IF Stephen Drew could return to action on Friday when the Yankees visit Fenway Park. Manager John Farrell also suggested he might be able to get a few at-bats Thursday with Pawtucket. ... As LHP Brett Anderson is close to throwing off a mound. Manager Bob Melvin said once he throws a bullpen session, the team will have a better idea of his rehab schedule. Melvin, along with Pedroia, were recently added to the Arizona Fall League Hall of Fame. ... Balfour, the only major league closer without a blown save, was added to the AL All-Star team when Colon threw his first pitch. ... The As enter the All-Star break with a winning record for the first time in five years. ... Gomes recorded his third career ejection and his first since June 5, 2008. ... Colon made career appearance No. 400. He did not walk a batter for the 10th time in 19 starts. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping .

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Winning the division is always important in Green Bay.But the Packers usually have higher aspirations.Its about getting to the Super Bowl. All the better for coach Mike McCarthy if his team reclaims the NFC North along the way.Division titles are important, but I dont lose any sleep over it. Because we have a bigger goal, McCarthy said on Thursday. We dont hang division title banners around here.Days before the start of his 11th season, McCarthy said one of the main goals each season is to take the NFC North, a title that eluded the Packers in 2015 when the Minnesota Vikings ended Green Bays four-year run atop the division.A division title guarantees at least one home playoff game.But theres a constant reminder of the ultimate goal in the stadiums atrium, a 50-foot replica of the Lombardi Trophy.The shiny top of the trophy was visible from the window of the Lambeau conference room where McCarthy talked to reporters.So, frankly, once you cross the threshold into the playoffs, its about getting to the final game and winning, McCarthy said.I want everybody to think that way, and I want everybody to behave that way and train that way and aspire for that to be.The Packers roster appears stocked with talent to make another deep run.Receiver Jordy Nelson has returned from a knee injury. Tailback Eddie Lacy looked rejuvenated in training camp after a subpar 2015 season. Linebacker Clay Matthews is playing from the edge again, eager to harass opposing quarterbacks.And the Packers have a pretty good one of their own, too.Two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers is in his prime, with the clock ticking. He turns 33 in December.Green Bay last won the Super Bowl in 2011, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. Back then, Rodgers was only in his third season as a starter. Some around the NFL thought a new Packers dynasty was taking root.Ive always had a full understanding of how hard it is to get to the Super Bowl, McCarthy said. Theres just so many things that you have to overcome, particularly in December and January ... to put yourself in position, Number 1, to be part of that small group of playofff teams.dddddddddddd.There the Packers were again this past January as a wild-card team in spite of their uncharacteristic season-long struggles for an injury-battered offense.The Packers were eliminated from the playoffs when Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald scored on a 5-yard touchdown pass just more than a minute into overtime in the divisional round.In 2014, Seattle eliminated Green Bay in overtime on Jermaine Kearses 35-yard touchdown reception from Russell Wilson. Theyve lost five playoff games overall on the final play under McCarthy.Asked if those close calls made him consider philosophical changes, McCarthy said, I think its important to stay in touch with the reality of what happened and why it happened, because if you lose sight of that then you start making changes and decisions for the wrong reasons.Against Arizona last season, for instance, the Packers were decimated by injuries to their receiving group. It severely limited the playbook for a potential 2-point conversion try after Jeff Janis 41-yard touchdown on a desperation pass from Rodgers as time expired in regulation. The Packers settled for the tie with an extra point to send the game into overtime.But yes, it would be nice if we had five of those where we won by one play. Im sure if you looked it up, theyre out there, McCarthy said. You get in playoff football, there are plays every game, big play opportunities that can swing the game.Through the ups and downs, the Packers stick with their draft-and-develop philosophy. Even with Rodgers in his prime, general manager Ted Thompson tends to not make moves to mortgage the future.But, hey, we clearly understand the type of player Aaron is, and we have a path, we have a vision to get to where we want to go, McCarthy said. Theres no guarantee, either, if you go out and sign a bunch of high-priced free agents -- I think history would tell you that that process has failed a lot more than its worked.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL T-shirts Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
