ST. USA Soccer Pro Shop . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Nick Franklin knew it was fair, so the brief pause for his first home run with Tampa Bay was no problem. Franklin connected for a two-run shot in the second inning, leading Chris Archer and the Rays to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night. Franklins drive to right against Hector Noesi came after a leadoff double by James Loney. The home run was held up by a 79-second replay review while umpires checked to see if the towering shot had stayed fair after hitting a catwalk above the right-field corner at Tropicana Field. "I knew it was fair right away. It just happened to stay straight, hit off the top of the ring," Franklin said. "I knew right away they couldnt change it. I mean, it was 15 or 20 feet fair." Archer pitched scoreless ball into the seventh inning, but the Rays were unable to complete a major league-leading 22nd shutout. Marcus Semiens pinch-hit single off Jake McGee in the ninth, Chicagos only hit after the fourth, drove in the only run for the White Sox. McGee finished the inning for his 18th save. Archer (10-8) allowed two hits and walked four in 6 1-3 innings. The right-hander is 2-0 with a 1.83 ERA in his last three starts. "I think Archer was just so good we didnt get anything going," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "He throws it hard, hes got a breaker." Rays manager Joe Maddon also was impressed, and Archer felt it was one of his better outings. "Its definitely up there," Archer said. "I really wish I could have gone deeper into the game, but we played great defence and that just gives you confidence to keep filling up the strike zone. It was one of those nights where things were going my way." Franklin was acquired from Seattle in the three-team trade that sent David Price to Detroit on July 31. He was playing in his fourth game for the Rays, having been recalled from Triple-A Durham on Monday. "I dont consider myself a home run hitter ... but Ill get one every now and then," Franklin said. It was his first homer since Aug. 29, 2013, with Seattle. Ben Zobrist had two hits and an RBI for Tampa Bay, which was eliminated from playoff contention Friday night. Noesi (8-10) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. He is winless in four September starts. TRAINERS ROOM White Sox: 1B Paul Konerko flew out as a pinch hitter in the ninth after going 0 for 4 Friday night in his first game since breaking his left hand Sept. 2. Konerko, who is retiring after the season, probably will be in the lineup Sunday, according to Ventura. Rays: RHP Brad Boxberger could rejoin the team Sunday following the birth of his daughter Thursday. ... INF Sean Rodriguez (death in family) missed his second straight game. UP NEXT RHP Nathan Karns (1-0) is scheduled to start the Rays home finale Sunday against White Sox LHP John Danks (9-11). Karns allowed two hits over seven scoreless innings in his first start of the season Sept. 12 at Toronto, while Danks is 0-2 with a 5.73 ERA over his last four road starts. MARVINS MASK Plate umpire Marvin Hudson took a hard foul by Chicagos Dayan Viciedo off the mask in the ninth, but stayed in the game after being checked out by a trainer. The trainer also looked at Hudson after the game. USA Soccer Jerseys China . The Blue Jackets got goals from Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner and R.J. Umberger and Curtis McElhinney posted his first shutout since 2011 in a 4-0 victory on Friday night. USA Soccer Store .J. - New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara left Monday nights game against the Indianapolis Colts with a torn biceps. https://www.cheapusasoccer.com/ . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, it doesnt appear the offer was warmly received by the team. Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said on Wednesday the team has made offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years but each one was refused by the restricted free agent centre and agent Kurt Overhardt.4) Speaking of which, if you invested time in the Cleveland Browns-Washington game, it is time to vote on the most interesting thing you saw. Was it Johnny Manziel "flipping off" the Washington bench, or the five holding penalties called against the Browns defence….in the first quarter?5) You will notice that I didnt mention the name of the Washington team. CBS analyst Phil Simms says he might do the same, while his play-by-play partner Jim Nantz feels it is not his place to "take a stance" on the controversy that will not go away. Whos right? I will only say that Nantz is, indeed, "taking a stance" by using the "R" name--hes saying he has no problem with it.6) Milos Raonics steady rise in the world tennis rankings is worthy of praise, but wheres the breakthrough victory that will signal the dawn of true greatness? The two views of Raonic are that it is inevitable, and that it will never come.7) It is time to tell MLB commissioner Rob Manfred how to save time and make games shorter. Are you with me in admitting that the appeal of the "sport without a clock" has waned?8) So lets begin with the toughest question--Should baseball actually use a clock to make the pitcher deliver the ball to home plate within 12 seconds of receiving it in his glove? The answer here is "yes", because the "discretion of the umpire" is a phrase that doesnt serve baseball well in any application.9) For instance, umpires can be encouraged to call more strikes, which usually means theyre supposed to call "high strikes", but they dont. Isnt it time for strict adherence to one strike zone, never mind the idea that umpires have their own strike zones? And, that strike zone, should you need a reminder, is between the top of the knees and the mid-point between the batters pants and the top of his shoulders, as he is about to swing.10) Batters arent supposed to step out of the batters box with both feet. So why are they allowed to do that for just about any reason, or for no reason? Stop them with called strikes.11) Mound conferences. The manager or pitching coach is allowed one trip, after which the pitcher must be changed. Whats wrong with applying the same restriction to catchers and infielders?12) Intentional walks. Why not save the time it takes to deliver four wide pitches and just wave the batter to first base?13) Video review. Baseball has lost its way with the introduction of challenges to umpires calls. Their number must be limited, and so too, the length of time they consume. Did it not occur to MLB that the only valid criticism of this innovation would be if the umps wore the headsets for more than, say, 90 seconds?14) And now it is time to offend the purists (I used to be one myself), or have I done that allready? If the reason for this overhaul is to shorten games, there must be something done when an extra-inning game stretches to the ridiculous length of five or six hours. Wholesale USA Soccer Jerseys. Draw the line where you think it belongs--Ill pick 12 innings--and for all innings beyond that, softballs international tie-breaker applies. (Each half-inning begins with a runner at second base).15) Kudos to the Montreal Alouettes for battling the Saskatchewan Roughriders to the very end of last Saturdays game, won 16-11 by the defending Grey Cup champs. But is there anyone not named Tom Higgins who would have done what the Montreal coach did after cutting Saskatchewans lead to two points with just over three minutes to play? What Higgins did was to order a one-point convert following the Als lone touchdown, when a successful two-point try would have evened the score. Ah, but what if the two-point play failed? Well, Montreal would have trailed by two, needing a field goal to win, which basically was what Montreal needed if the deficit was a single point. In summary, there was much to gain and little or nothing to lose by trying for two, and Higgins didnt.16) How good are the Calgary Stampeders? Well, if youre not willing to answer by saying "Theyre the best team in the CFL", try this: "Theyre good enough to be 6-1 without the services of the leagues top player in 2013, Jon Cornish". And wont it be good to see Cornish in action again on Sunday in Ottawa? (Ya, okay, perhaps not if youre Ottawa).17) Do you want the latest reason why its so frustrating being a Chicago Cubs fan? In their recently-completed four-game series against the Mets, the Cubs managed to hold the Mets to 16 hits, exactly four per game. And they split the series.18) Heres a stat that baseball needs to adjust--the "hold", which is awarded to a relief pitcher if he takes the mound with his team leading by three runs or less and departs without surrendering the lead. On Sunday, St. Louis closer Trevor Rosenthal walked three batters and was responsible for two of them crossing the plate, but because that still left the Cardinals in front for a one-run victory, Rosenthal, blown save and all, got his first "hold" of the season. What he got that he deserved was "the hook".19) If there must be a hockey question in August, here it is--what is the name of the Carolina Hurricanes head coach? (I had to look it up. Why dont you do the same, because the point of this exercise is lost if his name appears here. Or maybe you know it, which puts you ahead of me, unless you can name the NHLs five rookie general managers. It took me a couple of minutes, but hey, its August).20) Will the Los Angeles Clippers continue to employ cheerleaders, or would owner Steve Ballmer suffice? ' ' '
