get him in there against some left-h Antworten

PITTSBURGH -- Another fourth-quarter lead gone and another what if loss looming, Pittsburgh responded with a little bit of savvy, luck and a dash of redemption for its beleaguered defense thrown in for good measure to surge past struggling Georgia Tech.First, Scott Orndoff kept his head while hauling in a tipped pass from Nate Peterman the tight end turned into a game-tying 74-yard touchdown with 3:50 to play. Then nose tackle Tyrique Jarrett stuffed Yellow Jackets running back Dedrick Mills on fourth down to give Pitt the ball back with 1:47 left to set up Chris Blewitts bank shot 31-yard field goal as time expired.Just another heart-stopping Saturday for the Panthers.I think its just about believing and never getting down on yourself or on your team, Orndoff said. Just hanging in there.Something Pitt (4-2, 1-1 ACC) is getting used to under coach Pat Narduzzi. The outcome has hung in the balance in the final 2 minutes each of the last five weeks, including a last-second loss to North Carolina two weeks ago in which the Tar Heels converted four fourth-downs on the deciding drive.Thats what made Jarrett and linebacker Matt Galambos stop so satisfying. The clock dwindling, Georgia Tech went for it on fourth-and-1 at its own 34 rather than kick it. Galombos -- who Narduzzi describes as the defenses computer -- sensed a dive play was coming and changed the call right before the snap, leading Jarrett to stand up Mills short of the first down.I happened to guess right, Jarrett said. It was perfect.Pitt drove to the Georgia Tech 12 to set up Blewitts winner, which smacked off the right upright and through as time expired. Its the second straight season Pitt topped the Yellow Jackets on a late kick by Blewitt, whose 52 career field goals are a school record.Called corner pocket, Blewitt joked.Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson defended the decision to go for it rather than kick it and give Pitts offense -- which punted just once all day -- another shot. Instead the Yellow Jackets (3-3) dropped their third straight overall and their sixth straight true road game dating back to 2014.If I to do over again at the end of the game, I probably still would have gone for it but I would have called a different play, Johnson said. I felt the way the game was going, I felt like we could make a half-yard and we didnt so thats on me. Thats my responsibility and Ill take the blame for it.BIG MAN, BIG PLAYPeterman finished 14 of 20 for 192 yards and the long score to Orndoff. The Panthers spread the ball around while running for 215 yards, including a 24-yard run by 300-pound Pitt lineman Brian ONeill on a designed throwback lateral.Pitt offensive coordinator Matt Canada installed the play this week specifically for ONeill, a former tight end. He caught the ball and was surrounded by teammates while being escorted to the end zone.(Canada) told me dont do anything stupid when you score a touchdown because youre going to score a touchdown, ONeill said.THROWBACK FRENZYThe Panthers wore vintage blue-and-gold jerseys in a nod to the programs glory days of the 1970s and had Johnny Majors, the coach when Pitt won the 1976 national title, serve as honorary captain. As sharp as Pitt looked, however, Narduzzi made sure style didnt trump substance.(Narduzzi) told us those yellow helmets arent going to make a tackle for you, defensive end Shakir Soto said.TAKEAWAYGeorgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets were much improved following losses at home to Clemson and Miami but the defense struggled all day and yielded at the end. Johnson, however, remains upbeat even though his teams margin for error in the Coastal Division is gone.I think you can see every team in our division is probably really close, Johnson said. Just like North Carolina beat them on the last play, they beat us on the last play.Pitt: The Panthers are finding plenty of depth around star running back James Conner, who was held to 60 yards and failed to score a touchdown for the first time in 14 games. Eight different Panthers were credited with at least one carry.UP NEXTGeorgia Tech: take a break from ACC play when they host Georgia Southern. Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson led Georgia Southern to a pair of FCS titles in 1999-2000.Pitt: Travels to Virginia to take on the Cavaliers.

But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. NEW YORK -- Yoenis Cespedes cranky right quadriceps has flared up, prompting manager Terry Collins to hold the slugger out of the Mets lineup for Thursdays series opener against the Colorado Rockies and potentially beyond.Cespedes was used as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning on Thursday, but Collins said he knew the Rockies intended to intentionally walk Cespedes before sending him to the plate. Cespedes immediately was replaced by pinch runner Steven Matz in the Mets 2-1 loss.After delivering a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning Wednesday night in an eventual 5-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, Cespedes complained to Collins about renewed leg soreness.Last night he came in when the game was over and said it was starting to bother him pretty bad, Collins said.Cespedes originally injured the quadriceps on July 8. He missed more than a week, including skipping the All-Star Game. As a concession to try to keep Cespedes in the lineup upon his return, the Mets abandoned using him in center field, even though that has created complications with how to fill the position.However, limiting Cespedes to left field -- which requires less running than center field -- has not sufficiently allowed the leg issue to subside.The loss of Cespedes, potentially for multiple days, removes the Mets most fearsome bat and further depletes the lineup.Third baseman Jose Reyes is likewise active but unavailable because of a strained intercostal on his left side. Reyes injured the muscle in Game 1 of Tuesdays doubleheader against the Cardinals. The Mets had hoped Reyes would be capable of returning to the lineup Friday, but Collins now portrays that target as improbable.He was pretty sore last night when he left here, Collins said Wednesday.As a result, the Mets will play with a three-man bench -- Michael Conforto, Kelly Johnson and Travis dArnaud -- on Thursday against Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson.Collins said it was unfortunate that Cespedes would have to sit against a southpaw, but the manager concluded that it was just not worth risking having Cespedes blow out the muscle.Collins opted to start Alejandro De Aza in left field over Conforto in Cespedes absence because of Confortos struggles against left-hannded pitching.dddddddddddd Conforto is hitting .091 (4-for-44) against southpaws this season.Restricting Cespedes to left field has forced the Mets against right-handed pitching to use Conforto in center field for the first time in his professional career.One of the things we talked about after Ces said he didnt think he could play was, We have got to find out if this guy is going to be able to hit left-handers, Collins said about Conforto. As we look back on his season so far, if it wasnt for his struggles against left-handers, his numbers wouldnt be as bad as they look. And so we just said, Hes got a lot on his plate. We need to try to score some runs. We need to win this game. Weve pronounced it enough that, hey, these are big games now -- every one of them -- that we thought wed put somebody in [left field] who we think is going to have a little bit better chance to get some hits.There certainly can be an argument on the other side that this guy [Conforto] is the future here. Hes the prospect. Youve got to get him in there against some left-handed pitching or else hes not going to hit left-handed pitching. I certainly understand that. But right now, as Ive said before, I think weve got to give ourselves the best opportunity to try to win this game today. And hes just struggled against lefties, so we thought wed go with the other guy.Collins noted that the Mets will have the use of a designated hitter during five straight games in American League ballparks beginning Wednesday -- at Yankee Stadium, then in Detroit. Cespedes likely will serve as the DH in the bulk, if not all of those games to keep him off his legs as much as possible.Cespedes is hitting .297 with 22 homers and 58 RBIs in 320 at-bats this season. His arrival at last years non-waiver trade deadline helped propel the Mets to become the first team in MLB history to reach the World Series after ranking last in the majors in runs scored on July 31.Hes a huge piece, Collins said. You look at what hes done, and you take those home runs and those RBIs out of the middle of our lineup, and its tough to replace it.
