a second chance.The 27-year-old Quarless has been with Green Bay for the past six seasons. Hes caught 89 passes, including a car Antworten

SAN FRANCISCO -- Nate Schierholtzs recent power surge might not be enough to turn the Chicago Cubs season around. It sure is making the year a lot easier for the slugging outfielder to handle. Getting a game-winning home run against his former club? Well, thats just icing on the cake. Cheered in every at-bat this series by the crowd at AT&T Park, Schierholtz homered off ex-teammate Sergio Romo with one out in the ninth inning to lift the Cubs to a 1-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night. "I cant really describe it, but it felt good," Schierholtz said. "I always loved playing here. I love the fans here. I couldnt ask for a better reception." Dropped to sixth in the Cubs lineup after batting cleanup a night earlier in the clubs first game after trading Alfonso Soriano, Schierholtz worked a full count off Romo (3-6) before hitting a towering blast into the right field stands to hand Romo his second loss in as many games. Schierholtz played with San Francisco from 2007-2012 before getting traded to Philadelphia in exchange for Hunter Pence midway through last season. He signed with Chicago as a free agent in the off-season and had been bothered by shoulder problems earlier in the year before heating up over the past two weeks. The home run off Romo was Schierholtzs 14th of the season and third on the teams current 10-game road trip. Seven of his 10 hits on the road trip have been for extra bases. "Its pretty nice to watch," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "Its obviously huge for him to do that to his old team." Starlin Castro added two hits for Chicago, which is 18-13 in its last 31 games. Madison Bumgarner pitched eight shutout innings for San Francisco but left without a decision. The World Series champs have lost six of seven and are a season-high 11 games under .500. Since May 13, the Giants have the worst record in the majors at 23-42. "Were in a tough rut now and we know it," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "We just have to keep working and trying. We couldnt even get a cheap hit and we got what we deserve." Pedro Strop (1-0) pitched one inning for the win despite making two mental mistakes that helped the Giants load the bases with no outs in the eighth. Strop twice made late throws on sacrifice bunt attempts but got out of it when Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval grounded into forceouts at home and Hunter Pence struck out. "That was one of our more exciting innings of the year," Sveum said. "We were going to win it or lose it there." Kevin Gregg worked the ninth for his 21st save to complete the five-hitter, getting pinch-hitter Tony Abreu to ground into a 3-2-3 double play after San Francisco loaded the bases with one out. The Cubs won their second straight in this three-game set after dropping three of four to the Giants at Wrigley Field in April. Chicago scored two unearned runs in the ninth inning to beat San Francisco 3-2 on Friday. This one went down to the wire again. Chicago only got one runner to second base until Schierholtzs homer. That was enough to hold off the slumping Giants, who were shut out for the ninth time this season. Both starters were dominant but left without a decision. Chicago rookie Chris Rusin needed just 27 pitches to get through the third inning and didnt allow a baserunner until Pences one-out walk in the fifth. One batter later Joaquin Arias grounded a single to centre to end the no-hit bid. Rusin also worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the sixth and got help in the seventh when first baseman Anthony Rizzo made a leaping stab of Brandon Belts high liner to strand Pence at third base after he led off the inning with a ground-rule double. Bumgarner was equally effective until leaving for a pinch hitter in the eighth. The Giants most consistent starter this season and an All-Star, Bumgarner overcame a pair of errors behind him and pitched out of a two-on, two-out jam when Andres Torres made a diving catch on Schierholtzs sinking liner in the sixth. He finished with seven strikeouts and two walks. NOTES: The Giants committed two more errors and lead the majors with 76 this season. ...

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions had some explaining to do when they signed free agent tight end Andrew Quarless.Theres no doubt Quarless could fill a need for the Lions, with tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew recovering from injuries. The issue is that Lions general manager Bob Quinn said previously he had zero tolerance for domestic violence and dangerous weapons, and Quarless was sentenced to a year of probation and fined $1,000 for firing a gun in Miami Beach, Florida, last year.Quarless has been suspended for the first two games of this coming regular season for violating the leagues personal conduct policy. Hes allowed to play during the preseason.We are aware of the upcoming NFL suspension of Andrew Quarless, Quinn said in a statement Monday.We have thoroughly researched the incident that caused the suspension and have talked at length with Andrew about this. Andrew has been forthright and honest about the situation and he has gone through the process within the legal system.As an organization we are comfortable with adding Andrew to the roster and look forward to seeing him compete for the rest of the preseason.After taking over as GM in January, Quinn told reporters: The two things that are zero tolerance are domestic violence and dangerous weapons. Those are the two things Im not going to stand for, I dont believe in. Thats how I feel.Coach Jim Caldwell saidd after practice Monday that its important to look at every case on its own.ddddddddddddObviously we take a look at anybody thats available for us and do our proper vetting and move on from there, Caldwell said.I certainly believe in second chances. Now mind you, Im not Father Flanagan -- some of you guys are too young to know who that is -- but we do our due diligence, and obviously I think the young man is certainly worth a second chance.The 27-year-old Quarless has been with Green Bay for the past six seasons. Hes caught 89 passes, including a career-high 32 in 2013.He missed most of last season with knee problems.Quarless said he talked to a lot of people in the Detroit organization, and the team had a chance to get to know him. Hes eager to put last years incident behind him.You can judge anybody. First youve got to look in the mirror first, before you judge somebody, he said. Its something I moved forward from, and Ive taken steps to move forward progressively, and Im just looking forward to being a part of this organization.The Lions also announced that they have signed linebacker Dominique Tovell, waived tight end Ben McCord and put wide receiver Andre Caldwell on injured reserve.---Online:AP NFL website: and Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
