OWINGS MILLS, Md. Air Max Sale Australia . - Drawing on the knowledge he gained over 35 years as a football coach, Ravens defensive co-ordinator Dean Pees showed his creativity and expertise this season in putting together a unit that sustained its hard-hitting reputation despite several key injuries and the suspension of Haloti Ngata.The Ravens enter Saturdays playoff game at New England with six defensive backs on injured reserve. Baltimore has employed 12 different cornerbacks over the course of the season and also endured a month without Ngata after the five-time Pro Bowl tackle was disciplined by the league for using Adderall.And still, the Ravens upheld their tradition of defensive excellence.Only five teams allowed fewer points, no running back ran for 100 yards and Baltimore yielded no more than one touchdown in nine of its 16 regular-season games. Most importantly, the Ravens (11-6) played well enough to earn a trip to the post-season for the sixth time in seven years.Weve been through so many different players, and Dean has done a really tremendous job of tailoring the scheme toward what guys can do well, coach John Harbaugh said.We dont really look like the same defence every week in a lot of different ways. Its not like we revamp everything we do, but hes always going to give an opponent something different that theyre maybe not expecting to help guys play certain situations.Pees often stays up late at night drawing up Xs and Os in an effort to find the best way to utilize those at his disposal. Its not unlike his effort two years ago, when he worked through injuries to linebackers Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs to help Baltimore win the Super Bowl.Some years are just like that, Pees said. Weve got to stay here as long as weve got to stay here to get the job done.Baltimore started the season without injured cornerback Lardarius Webb and lost its other starting cornerback, Jimmy Smith, halfway into the season.More injuries to the secondary followed, leaving Pees no choice but to shuffle his coverage and use more blitzes to keep the pressure on the quarterback.Somehow, everything fell onto place.Dean has done an excellent job this year with rotating the safeties and the secondary, the next-man-up thing, Webb said. Hes done a great job of adjusting to the strength of his players. Thats one thing hes always been good at. Hes a nice, aggressive defensive co-ordinator. I love playing for him.Pees, 65, broke into coaching in 1979 as defensive co-ordinator of the University of Findlay (Ohio). He then served as an assistant for five different colleges, including Notre Dame and Michigan State, before taking over as head coach at Kent State in 1998.That job lasted for five years before he was hired as New Englands linebackers coach, a post Pees held for two years before becoming the Patriots defensive co-ordinator from 2006-09.Pees then came to Baltimore, working as linebackers coach for two years before replacing defensive co-ordinator Chuck Pagano, who got the top job in Indianapolis.Pees style can be described as teaching with a purpose.If you dont understand something or dont feel like you can get it down pat, all you have to do is just let him know, Ravens safety Will Hill said. Hes always up new challenges, and always has new schemes. He knows his players and what situations to put people in.Pees will have a heck of a challenge on Saturday against the Patriots (12-4). He doesnt expect his familiarity with New England coach Bill Belichick to factor into the game plan.At this point in time, I dont think I know him as well as everybody thinks I know him, Pees said. Ive been gone five years. Its been so far removed, its different.Although Pees is sure to have some new wrinkles in his defence, the Patriots have a good idea what to expect.Its a great team defence, New England quarterback Tom Brady said. Theyve always had a great defence. Theyre always one of the toughest defences we play all year.Pees is the sixth defensive co-ordinator in Ravens history. Four of the previous five went on to become NFL head coaches, but Pees isnt expecting to change jobs anytime soon.Its got to be something that you want to do; its not the prestige of wanting to be a head coach, he said. Ive never been fired, and I never left a job that I didnt like. Ive always just thought the other opportunity was better, or it was, Id like to try that.Id never say never, but I am so happy here. I love Baltimore, my family loves Baltimore, I love this defence and I love working for John Harbaugh.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Nike Air Max Sale Australia . -- Top-ranked Stacy Lewis birdied the last three holes and five of the final six Thursday for an 8-under 64 and a share of the lead with Mi Jung Hur in the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic.

Brazilian striker Brandao opened the scoring with a header in the 55th minute before winger Franck Tabanou volleyed home from close range to double the lead in the 61st. http://www.cheapaustraliaairmax.com/ . However, Therrien added that Galchenyuks status for next Wednesdays game against the Detroit Red Wings is questionable. Galchenyuk has been out since Jan. 6 with a broken right hand.A doubleheader of divisional battles takes place tonight on TSN2. First, the Philadelphia Phillies play host to the Atlanta Braves in a matchup of NL East rivals followed by the Oakland Athletics visiting Los Angeles to play the Angels in the AL West. All the action gets underway at 7pm et/4pm pt on TSN2. It was a successful slate of games for both Philadelphia and Atlanta this past weekend. The Phillies had lost four in a row before taking all three games of their series with the Miami Marlins, while the Braves bounced back from a series loss to the New York Mets by taking three straight meetings with the Washington Nationals. Atlanta came into the season with depth concerns to its rotation thanks to a rash of injuries, but saw late addition Aaron Harang continue his solid start in Sundays 10-2 victory. Harang yielded one run over six innings and has posted a 0.96 earned run average through his first three starts. It also helped that the hurler was staked to a 6-0 lead after two innings. "When the guys come out and they put up runs on the board early, as a pitcher you can just settle back and just throw your game knowing you have some leeway to play with," Harang said. Justin Upton made sure his pitchers had plenty of wiggle room in the series, going 8-for-10 with a pair of homers. He has 11 hits, four home runs and eight RBI over his last four games, and was one of three Braves sluggers to go deep on Sunday. Freddie Freeman, riding a nine-game hitting streak, and Andrelton Simmons also had home runs. Ervin Santana will make his second start with the Braves tonight and put together a spectacular debut last Wednesday. Santana, signed on March 12 to fill a hole in the rotation, held the Mets scoreless over eight innings of a 4-3 win, yielding three hits and striking out six without a walk. The righty began the game -- and his Braves career -- by throwing 20 straight strikes. "We went out with a game plan of getting ahead," Atlanta catcher Evan Gattis said of what made Santana so effective. Santana has faced the Phillies just once before, doing so while with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim back in 2008. The 31-year-old picked up a win, charged with one unearned run on two hits and a pair of walks in seven innings. He also struck out nine. The Phillies are hoping to put some early-season struggles behind them and are coming off back-to-back one-run wins over the Marlins. Chase Utley keyed Sundays 4-3 victory with a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning. Utleys third homer of the season upped his season average to .500 and he is the first Phillies player to start a season with a 10-game hitting streak since Pat Burrell in 2005. Wil Nieves notched a two-run double among his three hits and Ryan Howard also homered for Philadelphia, which was coming off a 10th-inning victory the previous day on Jimmy Rollins walk-off homer. "The guys are patient at the plate and swinging the bats up and down the lineup," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "We had good at-bats throughout the game." Getting the call toonight for the Phillies will be Roberto Hernandez, who won his debut with the club on April 4 and then did not factor into a 9-4 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday. Cheap Air Max Australia. Hernandez matched his second-highest strikeout total in a game with nine, but also allowed four runs (3 earned) on seven hits in five innings of work. The 33-year-old righty will make his second career start versus the Braves and first since June 17, 2007 while with Cleveland. Hernandez got a win on that day, scattering two runs over seven innings. The Braves have gone 23-14 versus the Phillies over the previous two seasons, but lost five of nine in Philadelphia in 2013. Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels - 10pm et/7pm pt Jesse Chavez takes another stab at his first win of the season Monday night when the Athletics enter Angel Stadium to open a three-game set with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Chavez has been stellar through two turns (1.38 ERA) in his first full season as a starting pitcher in the majors. After holding Seattle to one run in six innings during his first start, Chavez quieted the Twins bats on Thursday as he allowed only earned one run in seven innings. However, both times he walked away with a no-decision. For Los Angeles, left-hander Hector Santiago is also in search of his first win in 2014. But unlike Chavez, Santiago struggled in both of his first two starts. Most recently, he allowed four runs and three walks in 4 1/3 innings against Seattle last Tuesday. Hell hope for some more offensive production from a lineup that has come alive of late. On Sunday, Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez connected on back-to-back-to-back home runs in the first inning of an eventual 14-2 win over the New York Mets in the rubber match of a three-game interleague series. Hank Conger and Ian Stewart also went deep for the Halos, and all nine hitters in the lineup recorded a hit and scored at least one run. "(The Angels are) always a very dangerous team," As manager Bob Melvin said of Mondays opponent. "You have to play well against them. Offensively, theyre a force. I know theyre down (injured outfielder Josh) Hamilton right now, but they still have a lot of guys who can hurt you, and some different starting pitching we havent seen." However, Oaklands pitching presents a tough challenge, as well. As starters threw 17 scoreless innings and struck out 34 batters in the three-game weekend series at Seattle. In Sundays series-clinching, 3-0 win, Scott Kazmir struck out nine and allowed only two hits in six shutout innings. Four relievers combined to close the door over the final three frames. "Its exciting to have guys follow up a quality start, one after another, one through five. It really is exciting," Kazmir said. "We just want to keep going out there and keep making quality pitches and quality outings, all of us." In terms of the head-to-head series between these two teams, Oakland has won 13 of the last 19 meetings at Angel Stadium. Overall, the As have won the last four season series after going 11-8 against the Halos in 2013.
