CINCINNATI -- The last time before Thursday night that Jose Fernandez pitched in Cincinnati, it was April 18, 2013, his rookie season. He lasted only four innings and allowed five runs.Miamis struggling ace again lasted only four innings and allowed five runs, including Ramon Cabreras three-run homer that was the big blow in the Marlins 5-4 loss to the Reds.From there, things got better, Fernandez said when reminded of that first Cincinnati start. I hope they get better this time, too.Billy Hamilton used aggressive baserunning to produce another run and Eugenio Suarez added an RBI double to give Cincinnati three straight wins over Miami after losing the opener of the four-game series.Dan Straily (9-6) improved to 5-0 with a 2.68 ERA over his last six starts. He opened with five shutout innings before giving up Marcell Ozunas two-run homer in the sixth. Straily allowed six hits and struck out seven.Blake Wood turned in 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief before Raisel Iglesias pitched the ninth for his second career save in two opportunities.Fernandez (12-7) allowed five runs in a season-low four innings -- as many runs as he gave up in his four June starts -- and saw his ERA over his last four starts climb to 6.00. The Reds reached him for seven hits and a walk while sending him to a career-worst third consecutive loss. He previously had never lost more than two consecutive decisions.Obviously, (the Reds) were squaring a lot of stuff up, Miami manager Don Mattingly said. Im not quite sure. I havent seen the replay of his pitches yet, but balls kind of at the belt line or in the center of the plate are going to get hit.He also failed to adequately back up third when Hamilton tagged up from second on a fly ball to Ozuna in center field. The Reds speedster scored when Ozunas throw got through third baseman Martin Prado and bounced off the fence in front of the third base dugout.You cant give teams extra chances, catcher Jeff Mathis said. Weve got to play better baseball and limit our mistakes.Fernandez finished with six strikeouts, pushing him over 200 for the first time in his career. With 204, he is the sixth Marlin to reach 200 in a season and first since Anibal Sanchez with 202 in 2011.Cabrera gave Cincinnati a 3-0 lead with his first homer of the season in the second inning.Prado capitalized on an error by pitcher Jumbo Diaz with a two-run single in the seventh.MOVING UP: Fernandezs six strikeouts on Thursday leave him with 204 on the season, the third-highest season total in Marlins history. He trails Kevin Brown (205, 1997) and record-holder Ryan Dempster (209, 2000).POWER SURGE: Ozunas home run was his 22nd of the season and third of the four-game series. He is one homer short of matching the career high he set in 2014.ON THE VERGE: Joey Votto needs one double to reach 300 in his career and four RBI to reach 700.TRAINING ROOMMarlins: RHP A.J. Ramos is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Friday. If he feels OK on Saturday, Mattingly expects to be able to activate him on Sunday. Ramos, 1-1 with a 3.05 ERA and 32 saves in 47 relief appearances this season, has been out since Aug. 6 with a fracture of the third finger of his right hand.Reds: Problems with his patella and Achilles tendons related to last years knee surgery are plaguing SS Zack Cozart, who didnt start on Thursday for the third time in the four-game series.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Tom Koehler (9-8) tries for his first win in five career starts against the Pirates when Miami opens a three-game series in Pittsburgh on Friday. He is 0-4 with a 5.73 ERA in his career against the Pirates.Reds: RHP Tim Adleman (1-1) is scheduled to make his first start since May 19 when the Reds open a four-game wraparound series against Los Angeles in Cincinnati. Adleman has been sidelined with a strained left oblique. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Hats/ .com) - The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at Rexall Place. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Hoodie/ .

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Tom Brady reminisced for a minute, practically giddy rewinding back to his teenage years and childhood as a San Francisco fan watching Joe Montana with all the other greats and witnessing The Catch.Then he touched on some winning football before quickly taking off to go greet all of his supporters here at home.What a day for the Patriots star. One he waited for over nearly two decades as an NFL quarterback. And how fitting a rainbow even emerged as the game clock expired on his triumphant first game at San Franciscos home field following a 17-year wait .Making the day even sweeter, Brady won his 199th career game in Sundays 30-17 New England victory over the 49ers, tying Hall of Famer Brett Favre for second-most wins by a quarterback in NFL history. With his next one, Brady will match Peyton Manning for the top spot.Nostalgic from the start, Brady threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns, getting four TD passes with no interceptions for the 21st time in his career. He missed a chance to play at Candlestick Park in 2008 because of a knee injury.Brady had time to say hello to Tom Rathman. He saw Steve Young at halftime.Rathman, the former fullback and current 49ers running backs coach, was one of the quarterbacks favorites.He was neighbors with my best friend. I got to know him a little bit before the draft and he was just starting in coaching. I always loved the way that he played and the way he spiked the ball after he scored, Brady said.He autographed my shoe at this store opening when I was probably 12 or 13, he and Roger Craig. Great memories.Under pressure on the slick grass, Brady found Danny Amendola for a 5-yard touchdown to start the fourth quarter then later hit Malcolm Mitchell on a 56-yard score for his fourth TD pass .Brady also threw short touchdown passes to Julian Edelman and James White on his first two possessions and completed 24 of 40 passes. The AFC East-leading Patriots (8-2) bounced back from last weeks loss to the Seahawks by prevailing on a soggy afternoon at Levis Stadium.Edelman caught a 4-yard TD pass for the first score of the game, breaking away from Keith Reaser to the corner and just keeping two feet inbounds. He finished with eight receptions for 77 yards and Mitchell made four catches for 98 yards and White six for 63.Brady hit White for a 9-yard touchdown then Amendola reached a career high with his fourth TD catch of 2016 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Mitchells athletic, reaching grab between two defenders andd straightaway speed after the catch for his first career touchdown sealed it.ddddddddddddLeGarrette Blount had a season-long 44-yard run and finished with 124 yards rushing, his fourth 100-yard performance this season.With so many family and friends in the stands, Brady completed eight of his first nine passes and nine of 11.It was very cool. It doesnt get any better than that, he said. To have the first chance to ever do that was very special.DEBARTOLO HONOREDFormer 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo Jr. received his Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence during a halftime ceremony with umbrellas galore.I was told all these years I brought rain, thunder and lightning to this franchise, and I guess today proves it, he said.NEW NICKNAMEThe 1-and-Niners is an emerging nickname for a team that matched a franchise-record losing streak done once before. The 1978 team lost nine straight.KAEPERNICKS DAYColin Kaepernick was sacked five times and had a great first half.He couldnt sustain it, but he is still Chip Kellys starter.Were always evaluating every week, but I dont think Colin played poor today, Kelly said.Kaepernick threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Vance McDonald late in the first half and Shaun Draughns 13-yard TD catch in the fourth. But he went 8 for 21 in the second half after completing 8 of 9 passes in the first half.He didnt have one top target: A shoulder injury forced Torrey Smith to miss the first game of his career after playing 89 straight during six NFL seasons.NO TURNOVERS: San Francisco fumbled five times, but didnt lose any of them. The game featured no turnovers, a remarkable stat given a game played in rain for most of the day.The 49ers went without a turnover for the first time all season.SOUVENIR BALL: Phil Dawson will find a special place for this souvenir ball -- the one from his 400th field goal Sunday.He became just the 10th kicker in NFL history to reach the mark with a 33-yarder in the first quarter. Teammates immediately congratulated his achievement.In a team game its hard to feel good about individual accomplishments, San Franciscos 41-year-old kicker said. Probably when its all said and done and Im no longer a member of the team Ill enjoy it a little more.UP NEXTPatriots: Travel to face the Jets on Sunday.49ers: Travel to face the Dolphins on Sunday.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Gear Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Gear Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Jerseys 2019 ' ' '
