PITTSBURGH -- Given a choice, Josh Harrison is always going to choose to be aggressive. Always.So when the pickoff throw whizzed by Harrison as he stood on first base in the eighth inning with the Pittsburgh Pirates trailing by a run on Friday night, Harrison took off. When he rounded second, he caught third-base coach Rick Sofields eye. They both had the same idea: get to third as quickly as possible. So Harrison kept right on going.One problem. The ball got there first courtesy of a perfect strike from first baseman Hernan Perez to Jonathan Villar. And just like that, the threat was over. Soon after so was the game as the Pirates began a pivotal 10-game homestand with a 1-0 loss.In a split second, in the thick of things it looked like I was going to be safe, next thing I wasnt, Harrison said. Nothing you can really do. If I stop at second and the ball doesnt kick back to him, I could have been at third.Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle defended the decision, pointing to the number of times Harrisons hustle has paid off for the Pirates throughout his career.They made a major league throw, Hurdle said.One that helped send the Pirates to a fourth straight loss. Pittsburgh remained 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second wild card spot in the National league when it mustered just seven hits off seven Milwaukee pitchers and failed to get a runner safely to third. Harrisons mad scramble is as close as the Pirates came to getting within 90 feet of home.Knowing I was the tying run, especially in the eighth inning definitely stung a little bit, Harrison said.Andrew McCutchen went 3 for 4 but Pittsburgh left eight men on base and went 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position.TAILLONS TIMEPitching in a meaningful September for the first time as a professional, Pirates rookie Jameson Taillon put together a solid bounce-back performance after the Brewers touched him for five runs last Saturday. Taillon surrendered three hits and one run over six innings, striking out four without issuing a walk and needing only 76 pitches to get 18 outs.His only hiccup came when he hit Martin Maldonado leading off the sixth. Maldonado moved to second on a groundout and scored when Scooter Gennetts drive to deep center was just out of McCutchens reach. The 24-year-old Taillon, just two years removed from reconstructive elbow surgery, said he felt fresher than he has in some time and understands the team is carefully monitoring his workload.If I can help contribute in any way, thats great, the rookie said. Im aware of the standings. Im aware of where were at. Im aware whats at stake.SEPTEMBER SHUTOUTMaking his return after spending nearly a month on the DL to rest his right elbow, Milwaukees Junior Guerra knew he was on a pitch count. When the count ran out earlier than he anticipated, the Brewers expanded bullpen more than picked up the slack.Six Milwaukee relievers shut down the Pirates over the final 5 2/3 innings. Blaine Boyer (2-3) pitched a scoreless fifth to pick up the win. Tyler Thornburg worked the ninth for his seventh save.A nine-inning shutout using seven pitchers, which is probably only in September baseball, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. But they did great. They all pitched tough innings.Guerra reached his 70-pitch limit with runners on first and second and one out in the third. Jacob Barnes, who was also activated from the DL on Friday after dealing with his own right elbow issues, got Jordy Mercer to fly out and struck out Taillon.Guerra was hardly crisp while allowing five hits and two walks but said he felt healthy.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: P Gerrit Cole did some flat ground work on Friday as he continues his rehab from inflammation in his right elbow. Cole, on the DL since Aug. 25, is hopeful to return this season.UP NEXT:Ivan Nova will try to keep his Pittsburgh renaissance going when he makes his sixth start with the Pirates since being acquired at the trade deadline from the Yankees. Nova is 4-0 with a 2.87 ERA since the coming to Pittsburgh, including a 3-1 win over Milwaukee in his last start. Milwaukees Jimmy Nelson is still searching for the form he had in April and May. The right-hander is 2-10 with a 5.87 ERA in his last 16 starts dating to June 3. Nike Blazer Sb Mid Sale . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012.

The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. This was a long time coming. Vijender Singh was boxing at home for the first time in six years, and barring arguably the Commonwealth Games bouts at Talkatora Stadium in Delhi, this was the biggest crowd for a bout of his. Most of amateur boxing is anyway fought in front of just journalists.In those six years, Vijender has turned his life and career around by going pro. All his first six bouts were fought outside India, where he had to go to unnatural extents to promote the fights. Before one particular fight at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, Vijender had this to say in a press release: I love the Beatles music since I was a child back home and my parents are big fans of their music and I believe that my grandparents went to see them when they came to India in the late 1960s, so growing up I remember all the hits -- Hey Jude, Yesterday, All You Need Is Love, Let It Be, Penny Lane, Here Comes The Sun -- I love it all!I cant wait to get to Liverpool, Ive never fought in the city before as an amateur so now I will get my chance to get down to the Cavern Club finally. Madison Square Garden may be the home of boxing, but for me I have to get to the Cavern Club!I admired boxing legends like Ali and Sugar Ray growing up, but they were never really my heroes, The Beatles however were the centre of my life growing up, I wanted to be a rock star! Well, Im rocking opponents in the ring now!On Saturday there was no need for contrived promotion. The full house was lapping up all the Bollywood and Punjabi pop numbers being belted out. In between they cheered on the big shots in the bouts between the undercards. As the fight night went on slowly, half an hour behind schedule, during the penultimate bout you wondered if Vijender was listening to the crowd and wondering if they were there for the boxing.It was a hard-fought match between Siddhartha Verma and Dilbagh, but as it reached the eighth and final round, the boxers might as well have disappeared. As Rahul Gandhi entered the stadium, a deafening chant of Pappu, Pappu and Modi, Modi sent the bout into oblivion, followed by the entry of Yuvraj Singh, which again took the crowd away from the bout in the dying stages of the bout. The same had happened when two girls from Mary Koms academy didnt on the surface fight well enough to make the crowd continue watching as Virender Sehwag entered the stadium. You wondered if Vijender wondered if India - the superstars who couldnt wait for the round to finish, the organisers who couldnt tell them to do so, the crowd who coouldnt care less about the show - was ready for sports other than cricket.ddddddddddddAt around 10pm, though, 37 minutes behind schedule, Vijender appeared at the top of the ramp, and the crowd went berserk. The roof might have moved a little. Vijender was moved a little too. He stood there and took it in as his entry song Singh Is King played in the background. The national anthems out of the way, the full house - nearly 7000 people - watched in rapt attention, cheering for every punch that Vijender landed, grimacing when he stumbled and fell, falling in a hush every time his opponent Kerry Hope connected.Vijender acknowledged this crowd as he sat with his WBO Asia pacific super middleweight title belt. With every punch I landed, I could hear the Singh Is King chant, the Vi-jender Vi-jender chant, he said. You are focusing on your fight, but this was overwhelming.The win itself, though, didnt come as easily as his earlier ones, all knockouts in his 6-0 career. Hope, a veteran journeyman, with a 23-7 record including four rounds, stretched Vijender all the way, denying him a knockout, but Vijender was a comprehensive and unanimous winner on decision: 98-92, 98-92, 100-90. In the first round, in the sixth and in the ninth, Vijender managed to connect combinations of rights, which threatened to roll Hope over, but the Welsh-born Australian managed to come back at him.In the first round, Vijender landed two rights in a row, and mock-smiled at Hope, but Hope danced straight back into the contest. It seemed that Hopes strategy was to make Vijender, usually a counter-attacker, be the aggressor and spend energy in the longest bout of his career. Vijender, though, bided his time, showed reserves of energy, and kept landing the odd blow consistently to edge out each round. Being the aggressor would also leave Vijenders body open for the southpaws counter, but that never materialised.In the next four rounds, Hope kept holding Vijender off, but he didnt succeed in visibly frustrating Vijender, who opened Hope up under the right eye in the fourth round. Egged on by the home crowd, Vijender landed consecutive rights in the sixth to leave Hope staggering a little. Vijender went back to being patient before getting another offensive in in the ninth, getting two sets of two rights each straight into his face. It was now just a matter of time. Except that it had been a long time coming. ' ' '
