ST. LOUIS -- Robby Fabbri insists nothing has changed since being a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. His play says otherwise.Jaden Schwartz and Kyle Brodziak scored early in the third period to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.Fabbri and Scottie Upshall also scored and Jake Allen made 23 saves for the Blues, who snapped a three-game skid and beat the Sabres for the ninth straight time.Maybe just more attention to little details, but my games stayed the same, said Fabbri, who has scored three goals in two games since returning to the lineup. Just trying to stick to that, stay positive and keep going here.Sam Reinhart scored and Robin Lehner stopped 27 shots for the Sabres, who lost their fifth consecutive game.The Blues are 4-0-2 in their last six at home and have allowed two goals or fewer in eight of their nine games at the Scottrade Center this season.Schwartz broke a 1-1 tie 44 seconds into the third period on a rebound past a prone Lehner, who had made a sprawling save to stop Dmitrij Jaskins breakaway moments before.It was a great play by Jask, Schwartz said. He had a lot of speed and made a good power move and just a fortunate bounce for me. I think anyone could have put that in.Brodziak tipped in Ryan Reaves pass to give the Blues a 3-1 lead at 2:16 of the third. It was Brodziaks first goal since April 4 against Arizona.While Fabbri is known for his skill, the second-year player changed the game with his fists by getting into a second-period fight with Josh Gorges a couple of minutes after Gorges checked Alexander Steen hard into the boards. It was just the second fight of Fabbris NHL career, the other coming Feb. 14 against Tampa Bay.I dont know what got into me, but I wanted to be that guy so I went out on that shift so I asked him, Fabbri said. And the funny part is I asked him again and hes like, `Are you serious? and Im like, `Well yeah, kind of, so thats what happened.Steen briefly returned after the hit, but was taken out of the game shortly after for precautionary reasons. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday.Reaves said Fabbris willingness to stick up for a teammate energized the Blues.It only motivates us when a guy like that who doesnt fight and hes a skill player goes and sticks up for our team, Reaves said. Youve got to give him that pat on the back and if that doesnt get you up, you might as well sit down. And he did a good job. If he would have landed that first one it would have been night-night.Reinharts power-play goal gave the Sabres a 1-0 lead at 7:55 of the first period. The goal came 18 seconds after Upshall took an ill-advised hooking penalty for St. Louis in Buffalos zone.Fabbri tied it three minutes later. All three of his goals during his streak have come on the power play.Lehner made 11 saves and Allen made eight saves in a scoreless second period. Allen robbed Reinhart with his left pad midway through the frame, while Lehner stopped a Jaskin shot from the slot late in the period.Were strapped for goals, Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said. Were strapped for opportunities to get the goal and its not for a lack of effort, guys are throwing it out there and giving everything they got.Game notes Blues F Nail Yakupov was a healthy scratch for the fourth time in six games. ... Sabres F Ryan OReilly (middle body) and D Dmitry Kulikov (undisclosed) missed the game with injuries. ... Sabres F William Carrier was the Blues second-round pick (No. 57 overall) in 2013, but was traded to Buffalo in the deal that brought Ryan Miller and Steve Ott to St. Louis.UP NEXTSabres: Host Tampa Bay on Thursday night.Blues: Host San Jose on Thursday night. Stars Jerseys China . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. Fake Stars Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. Cheap Stars Jerseys . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Dallas Stars Gear . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human.CHICAGO -- J.J. Hoover put together his own birthday party at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. He grabbed another scoreless outing for a present, and the Cincinnati Reds got a big win. Hoover provided terrific relief work on his 26th birthday and Shin-Soo Choo hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the 11th inning, leading Cincinnati to a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs. "The bullpen did a great job again," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Hoover did an outstanding job, got a much-needed win considering how he started the season. You know, we just played good baseball." With no outs and the bases loaded, Choo jumped on the first pitch he got from Eduardo Sanchez (0-1) and lined it into the gap in right-centre. Ryan Ludwick and Devin Mesoraco came around to score. Sanchez walked the first two batters of the inning and Cesar Izturis reached on an error by third baseman Donnie Murphy to set up Choos clutch hit. "I tell myself (be) aggressive (for) last at-bat, so I just swing at the first pitch," Choo said. Nate Schierholtz, Dioner Navarro and Murphy homered for Chicago, which was shut out in each of its previous three home games. Schierholtzs two-run drive in the second snapped a franchise-record home scoreless stretch at 33 innings. "Obviously we didnt play really good baseball tonight again," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. Hoover (3-5) allowed one hit in a career-high 2 1-3 innings, running his scoreless streak to 21 appearances and 24 2-3 innings. The surge, which began with one inning in Chicago on June 13, has lowered his ERA from 5.40 to 2.81. "It was just a small mechanical adjustment that I made mid-year, and its helped me out," he said. Aroldis Chapman finished for his 29th save in 33 chances, closing out Cincinnatis third consecutive win and sixth in seven games. The Reds also improved to 14-1 in their last 15 games at Chicagos cozy neighbourhood ballpark. David DeJesus had a leadoff single in the 10th for the Cubs, but Junior Lake popped up a sacrifice attempt and Hoover turned Anthony Rizzos comebacker into an inning-ending double play. Brandon Phillips had three hits and stole two bases, helping Cincinnati build a 4-2 lead. But Navarro led off the fourth with a drive just past the foul pole in right for his career-high 10th homer, and Murphy tied it with another leadoff shot in the seventh. The three homers allowed matched a career high for Homer Bailey, who gave up six hits and walked three in 6 1-3 innings. He had won each of his previous two starts. "My command was just terrible tonight,"; he said.dddddddddddd "Just one of those nights, I just didnt have good stuff at all. Never really felt like I was in a groove." Jeff Samardzija yielded six hits and walked four in six innings, extending his winless stretch to five games. The right-hander was coming off a disastrous outing at Philadelphia, when he gave up nine runs and 11 hits in just 3 1-3 innings in a 12-1 loss. "I felt good out there. If I had to go back to anything, it was the first-pitch strike," Samardzija said. "I felt like I was behind the count a lot tonight. Even when they are taking a pitch. Thats a big pitch, the first of an at-bat. You want to jump ahead in the count and be aggressive." The unseasonably cool night began with the Cubs holding a pregame ceremony to honour Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, who will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a November ceremony at the White House. Its Americas highest civilian honour for contributions to society. Fellow Hall of Famer Billy Williams paid tribute to his longtime friend with team chairman Tom Ricketts standing nearby, and the 82-year-old Banks waved to the crowd as it saluted "Mr. Cub" with a long ovation. "Its amazing," Banks said. "It means everything to me. Life if is just wonderful. When you do things to help people and share things then it comes back to you. I just worked hard and to try to do my best, loved the players, love Wrigley Field, love all the players." Banks joins an impressive list of baseball players to receive the honour, including Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Frank Robinson, Buck ONeil and Stan Musial. NOTES: It was Ludwicks second appearance since he tore cartilage in his right shoulder while sliding headfirst into third base on opening day. ... It looks as if Jorge Soler, one of Chicagos top prospects, could be done for the season. The Cuban outfielder is sidelined with a stress fracture in his left leg. "Fall leagues still very much a possibility," president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. "Minor league season is looking like it might not happen at this point." The 21-year-old Soler signed a nine-year, $30 million contract with the Cubs last year. ... RHP Jake Arrieta, who was acquired in a July trade with Baltimore, could be back up with the Cubs soon. "Yeah, were getting close to that point," Epstein said. Arrieta is 2-2 with a 3.56 ERA in seven starts with Triple-A Iowa. ... Cubs LHP Chris Rusin (2-1, 3.08 ERA) and Reds RHP Bronson Arroyo (10-9, 3.51 ERA) are scheduled to pitch on Wednesday. ' ' '
