OAKLAND, Calif. -- Manager Bob Melvin recalls when the Athletics had a potent batting order like the one from Boston that keeps beating up on his club.Once again, Oakland didnt have the pitching or the offense to compete with the powerful Red Sox.Teams that take a lot of pitches and make you throw a lot of pitches, its like a boxer, its just body blows and body blows and then they give you a good one, Melvin said. Thats what they do.Rick Porcello didnt allow a baserunner until Jake Smolinskis one-out double in the sixth on the way to his majors-leading 19th victory, and Boston routed the As yet again with an 11-2 victory Saturday night. The ace right-hander also became the first Red Sox pitcher with 19 wins in his first 22 decisions.David Ortiz hit a two-run double to highlight Bostons seven-run third to chants of Pa-pi! Pa-pi! for the retiring slugger in his last visit to Oakland.The early hitting by Boston made for a short day by right-hander Daniel Mengden (1-6), called up from Triple-A Nashville only to allow seven runs and eight hits in just 2 2/3 innings.I was just falling behind a little too much. You never want to give a team like that good counts and places to do damage, he said.Yoan Moncada had a run-scoring double for his first career hit and RBI -- and got the ball as a souvenir. He earned his first start a day after the star Cuban prospect made his major league debut in a 16-2 win.Its a big step getting the first hit, Moncada said.Hanley Ramirez added a home run in the third, his fourth in seven games.Porcello (19-3) gave up four hits and two runs in seven innings, struck out two and didnt walk a batter. Boston improved to 21-7 in Porcellos starts and 13-2 in his last 15. The Red Sox scored 11 or more runs against the As in their fifth straight, a night after matching their season high with 16 runs.Mookie Betts hit a two-run double in the first following Ortizs first double that moved Dustin Pedroia to third. Betts joined Ted Williams as the only Red Sox with at least 30 home runs with 100 or more RBI in a season before turning 24.Ortiz had three more hits and is 5 for 6 with five RBI this series. He moved within one RBI of the AL lead behind Torontos Edwin Encarnacion (108). Ortiz also needs to drive in one more run to tie Dave Winfield for most RBI by a player 40 or older. A 12-time All-Star and Hall of Famer, Winfield drove in 108 runs for Toronto in 1992.CANSECO BOBBLEHEADHowd Jose Canseco like his bobblehead, handed out Saturday?Its pretty good, its pretty accurate. It looks like the pre-Steroid-era bobblehead, though, he said. Its got me kind of skinny. If it would have been the Steroid-era it would have me more beefed up. It looks more like the `86 bobblehead.Of his ceremonial first pitch, Canseco took to Twitter:Went with the knuckle .it danced, he wrote.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: C Josh Phegley is being shut down for the season because of inflammation in his right knee that landed him in the hospital last weekend. He also dealt with strep throat and manager Bob Melvin said hes unsure whether that could have triggered further trouble with the knee. ... RHP Sonny Gray threw from 105 feet as he tries to work back from a strained right forearm before the end of the season. Until he throws off a mound, its unclear whether he will pitch again in 2016.UP NEXTRed Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (2-6, 5.35 ERA) has allowed three or fewer runs in seven of his eight outings since the All-Star break and has a 3.22 ERA with 40 strikeouts to 16 walks.Athletics: RHP Kendall Graveman (10-9, 3.96) seeks his first career decision against the Red Sox in his third appearance. After beginning 1-6 over his initial nine starts, Graveman is 9-3 with a 3.36 ERA in his last 17. Cheap NHL Jerseys Gear .

Stitched NHL Jerseys . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. CINCINNATI -- Only three wins heading into December? Thats a new one for Andy Dalton and many of the Bengals.And they have company that can commiserate this weekend.The Bengals (3-7-1) are already thinking about next year as they get set to host the Eagles (5-6), who are pretty much in the same predicament. The first game of December is wrapped in a lot of what-ifs for both teams.Its different, Dalton said. Ive never really been in this situation in my life or with any sport that Ive ever played. Ive been just trying to figure out how to change it.So are the Eagles, who won their first three games in what was expected to be a rebuilding season behind rookie quarterback Carson Wentz. Theyve since lost six of eight, leaving them -- like the Bengals -- with only the slimmest chance for reaching the playoffs.Yeah, its been an up-and-down year, Eagles defensive end Connor Barwin said. Obviously we were all very excited at the beginning of the year.Mathematically, each of them still has a chance.The Bengals could win another title in the subpar AFC North by running the table and having the Ravens (6-5) and the Steelers (6-5) fall apart.The Eagles have home games left with all three teams in their division -- the Cowboys (10-1), the Giants (8-3) and the Redskins (6-4-1) -- so theres a chance to gain ground in the wild-card race.Whoever loses on Sunday can pretty much go ahead and write off the season and get ready for a dismal December.We brought this on ourselves, Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones said.Some things to watch on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium:NO RUSH: The Eagles have only six sacks in the past five games after recording 20 in the first six. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox has four sacks and none in the past seven games. Cox signed a contract that included more guaranteed money ($63 million) than any non-quarterback has ever received.He draws a lot of attention, a lot of double teams, coach Doug Pederson said. He still is very disruptive and can be a force inside. Its just a matter of the sheer determination and wanting to get the job done. Hes still a very capable defensive lineman for us.Defensive end Vinny Curry signed a contract that included $23 million guaranteed. He has only 1+ sacks. Ennd Brandon Graham leads the team with five, but only has one in the past five games.ddddddddddddBALANCING ACT: The Eagles are 0-4 when they dont rush for 100 yards and 0-3 when Wentz throws more than 40 passes. Pederson has stressed the need for balance, so he tries to run the ball and control the clock to limit the pressure on his rookie quarterback.Against the Packers, Wentz threw 36 passes and the running backs only had 13 carries. Rookie Wendell Smallwood is expected to get the bulk of the workload against the Bengals if Ryan Mathews cant return from a knee injury.IN YOUR FACE: The Ravens tried an unusual -- and successful -- strategy against Dalton during their 19-14 win on Sunday. Rather than a full-out pass rush on Cincinnatis final series, they held their spots and put up their hands, batting down four of Daltons last eight passes as they closed out the win. Itll be interesting to see if the Eagles try some of the same against an offense missing deep threat A.J. Green and running back Giovani Bernard.Ive never seen it happen four times on a drive, Dalton said. We have to do whatever we can do not to let that happen.PAT PROBLEMS: Bengals kicker Mike Nugent has missed his past three point-after-touchdown attempts and four of his past eight, playing a huge role in close games. The Bengals are 0-3-1 in their past four games, with Nugents missed PAT and field goal attempt figuring in the 27-27 tie with Washington. The three losses have been by a total of 10 points. The Bengals have decided to stick with Nugent rather than find a late-season fill-in. The home crowd wont take kindly to another miss of any sort.HOME WOES: The Bengals are only 4-5 at Paul Brown Stadium since the middle of last season, including a first-round playoff meltdown against the Steelers last season. Fans booed and left early during a 16-12 loss to Buffalo on Nov. 20. Given how the season has gone, playing at home isnt much of an advantage.---AP Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
