BOSTON -- Two pitchers enjoying second-half surges hook up for the second time in less than a week when the Boston Red Sox host the Tampa Bay Rays in the second game of a three-game series on Tuesday night.Drew Pomeranz, the left-hander the Red Sox acquired from the San Diego Padres in exchange for a top pitching prospect, has turned around a slow start and lost only once in his last five starts.That loss came last Thursday, when Pomeranz struck out a career-high 11 in six innings and fell to the Rays and Odorizzi in St. Petersburg.A lot of strikeouts. Sometimes I like that, sometimes I dont, Pomeranz said after that game dropped his combined NL/AL record to 10-10. I could have took a few quick outs in places to get a couple more innings out there.Pomeranz allowed one run through six but failed to retire either of the first two batters in the seventh and the result was a second straight Red Sox loss to send the team home 7-4 on the long road trip.He has allowed two or fewer runs over his last five starts with a 2.40 ERA over that 30-inning stretch, striking out 31 over that span.It is disappointing, Pomeranz said of the loss. Its always disappointing when you lose. We would have liked to have those last two to complete the road trip. But it happens.His run is lukewarm compared to Odorizzi, 6-0 since the All-Star break with what has to this point been the lowest Tampa Bay ERA (1.59) of any pitcher in club history. He has the second-lowest second-half ERA in the major leagues this season and has not lost since July 10.Odorizzi pitched out of two bases loaded spots in the sixth inning of last Thursdays game.Have to credit (pitching coach Jim Hickey), he said. Great mound visit. He came out and said first-pitch changeup, get a double-play. So thats exactly what we did.Mookie Betts is 5-for-17, Dustin Pedroia 8-for-22, Xander Bogaerts 7-for-20 and Travis Shaw 4-for-10 for the Red Sox against Odorizzi, while David Ortiz is 4-for-22, but with three homers and Jackie Bradley Jr. 2-for-13.On the other side, Matt Duffy, who was with the Giants when Pomeranz was with the Padres, is 4-for-12 against him and Brad Miller 3-for-8 with a homer. Logan Forsythe, also a former Padre (but not an ex-teammate), is 2-for-11 against Pomeranz.Odorizzi will be trying to even the series for his team when he puts his winning streak on the line.The Red Sox rode Rick Porcellos MLB-high 18th win and Betts 30th homer, RBI double, two RBI and two runs scored to a 9-4 win on Monday night.We just got beat tonight, said Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash, whose team is 55-75, 6-8 against the Red Sox. They found a way to get on base, get big key hits with guys on base and it just added up, piled up and was very difficult for us to overcome. Stitched Orioles Jerseys . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Custom Baltimore Orioles Jerseys .

Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Reviews on the weather were mixed Sunday at the Miami Dolphins-Arizona Cardinals game.Every time we got the ball it seemed like it was pouring, like a monsoon, Cardinals receiver J.J. Nelson said. Ive never played in anything like that.Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry found the rain fun.When you think about football, you dream about this type of game, he said.Guess which team won.Frequent heavy showers made for a sloppy game, and the Cardinals were unable to overcome four turnovers in the first 20 minutes, losing 26-23 .Carson Palmer threw two interceptions and lost a fumble when he bobbled a snap . David Johnson also lost a fumble. A slick ball contributed to all four giveaways by a team accustomed to desert conditions, not monsoons.We practiced with a wet ball on Wednesday and didnt have any problems, Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. But when it continually pours when you have the ball, which was kind of odd, its tough.Palmer agreed the timing on the passing showers was weird.Every time we had the ball, it just started turning on and staying on, Palmer said. Then it would stop.Turnovers are a big reason the Cardinals (5-7-1) will likely sit out the playoffs. They have 26 turnovers this year, two more than in 2015, when they went 13--3.ddddddddddddRoad missteps have been a chronic problem too. Arizona is 1-5 away from home, including 0-4 in games in the Eastern time zone. Last season the Cardinals went 8-1 away from home.In Miami, turnovers were far from the only issue. Palmer threw for only 145 yards. Larry Fitzgerald had just 12 yards receiving. Johnson, who came into the game leading the NFL in touchdowns, was kept out of the end zone.Chander Catanzaro missed a field-goal attempt and two extra points, with one blocked PAT returned for a 2-point conversion by Walt Aikens , who didnt mind the weather a bit.What weather? Aikens said. Football weather. Perfect. Not so much for the offense, but for the defense. Reminds me of my childhood.The blocked kick and Aikens score with 7:05 left represented a three-point swing, which turned out to be the difference in the game.So it has gone in 2016 for the Cardinals.The ball, Palmer said, has not bounced our way once.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve-Wine.
