Eberle had just 22 penalty minutes with the Oilers in 2010

ATLANTA -- Manager Fredi Gonzalez saw no reason he shouldnt let Evan Gattis swing with a 3-0 count in the first inning. Mexico Eduardo Herrera Jersey . One big swing from Gattis showed why he deserved that vote of confidence. Gattis hit a three-run homer and Chris Johnson followed with another long ball in the first, and the Braves edged the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 on Friday night for their first interleague win. The Braves were 0-6 against American League teams before taking advantage of four runs in the first on the two homers off C.J. Wilson (7-6), including a three-run shot by Gattis. There were two outs and two runners on when Gattis faced the 3-0 count against Wilson. Gonzalez relayed the green light. "The way hes swinging the bat, why not?" Gonzalez asked. Asked what pitch he was looking for, Gattis said "A pitch to handle." He said it didnt have to be in a certain location and added Wilson delivered "a decent pitch" on the inside to middle of the plate. Wilson didnt like the pitch. "That pitch just didnt move at all," Wilson said. "It was right down the middle. Obviously the guys got great power and hes on a tear right now." Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Wilson, who had a hit batter and a walk before the homer, was hurt by his poor control in the inning. "He almost worked his way out of it but C.J. just was behind in too many counts and it eventually caught up with him," Scioscia said. Wilson was in control after the ugly first inning. He gave up only three hits in five scoreless innings after the first. The homer over the left-field wall was the 14th for Gattis, leaving him tied for third place in the National League. He had two hits, giving him a 13-game hitting streak, Atlantas longest this season. Aaron Harang (5-5) allowed one run in six innings to end a streak of five consecutive starts without a win. Braves right fielder Jason Heyward left the game with a bruised right hand after being hit by a pitch from Wilson in the first inning. The Braves said X-rays were negative and Heyward is day to day. After being hit on the top of his hand leading off the first inning, Heyward remained in the game and scored on the homer by Gattis. He remained in the game on defence in the second before leaving in the bottom of the inning as Jordan Schafer was used as a pinch-hitter. "It gradually felt worse," Heyward said, adding hes relieved he didnt have a broken bone. The Angels trailed 4-1 before Albert Pujols had a two-run single off Shae Simmons in the eighth. Craig Kimbrel struck out Raul Ibanez to cap a perfect ninth inning for his 19th save. Harang, 36, earned his first win in eight career starts against the Angels. He was 0-4 with a 10.48 ERA in four 2013 starts for Seattle against the Angels. Harang gave up four hits and three walks with two strikeouts. The homer by Gattis drove in Heyward and Freddie Freeman, who walked. Johnson followed with his homer over the centre field wall for a 4-0 lead. Wilson had allowed only one homer in his last five starts before allowing the back-to-back shots. The Angels scored in the third when Hank Conger hit a leadoff double before moving to third and then scoring on two wild pitches from Harang. Braves centre fielder B.J. Upton dropped Kyle Calhouns liner for an error, helped Los Angeles in the eighth. Upton caught up to the ball but couldnt hold on when trying for a basket catch at his waist. Mike Trouts bloop double left runners on second and third with one out. Pujols, who has hit .347 in his career against the Braves, then punched a two-run single past second baseman Tommy La Stella. Simmons struck out Howie Kendrick and ended the inning on Erick Aybars grounder to first base. Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons left his feet to make a diving catch of a sharply hit grounder by Josh Hamilton in the sixth. Simmons bounced up to throw out Hamilton in a close play at first base. "That is probably one of the best plays Ive seen in a long time," Harang said. NOTES: Scioscia said LHP Tyler Skaggs (right hamstring) could return from the 15-day DL next weekend. ... Andrelton Simmons, who is from Curacao, sprinted through the clubhouse screaming "Goooaaaalll!" before the game when The Netherlands scored the go-ahead goal in their 5-1 World Cup victory over Spain. ... C Gerald Laird said his right jaw was sore after being hit by Corey Dickersons bat in Thursdays game at Colorado, but he has passed a concussion test and was available off the bench. ...

In a season that will see the Oilers miss the playoffs for a sixth straight year, Eberle is making a bid for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for sportsmanship and gentlemanly play and Nugent-Hopkins is considered a favourite to win the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHLs top rookie. While Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins would rather talk about a playoff push or team success than about themselves, its too late for the former and theres been little of the latter for the 29th-place Oilers. They dont, however, mind talking about each other. "This is probably a biased approach, but he deserves it," Eberle says of Nugent-Hopkins and the rookie of the year award. "Hes an honest player and he plays a good, honest game," Nugent-Hopkins says of Eberle. Still two weeks from his 19th birthday, Nugent-Hopkins has lived up to the hype surrounding him leading into the 2011 Entry Draft, when the Oilers picked him first overall from the Red Deer Rebels. Despite missing 20 games with a shoulder injury, Nugent-Hopkins has scored 18 goals and 31 assists, good enough for a tie with Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalanche atop the rookie scoring race. "A lot of nights, hes been our best player," Eberle said. "Hes been, I think, everything that everyone expected him to be from Day 1. "I think a lot of guys thought he was going to get sent down, but once we saw him play, it was like, Holy crap. The big characteristic is how smart he is. Hes our quarterback on the power play. Hes a guy Ive played with all year and every night youre amazed watching him out there." Eberle, 21, who led the Oilers in scoring with 43 points as a rookie last season, has scored at a point-per-game clip with 32 goals and 41 assists for 73 points in the 73 games hes played. That puts him 11th among NHL scorers going into Thursdays games. Hes managed that while accumulating just eight minutes in penalties, all minors. Matt Moulsen of the New York Islanders is the only other player among top-30 scorers with single-digits iin penalty minutes. Mexico Jorge Campos Jersey. Moulsen is 27th in scoring with 64 points and has six penalty minutes. "He goes to the tough places, too. Thats where he scores most of his goals," Nugent-Hopkins said of Eberle. "Its one of those things where hes just smart about it." Eberle had just 22 penalty minutes with the Oilers in 2010-11 and he never had more than 32 minutes in four seasons with the Regina Pats. Its not surprising his favourite player is Tampa Bay Lightning forward Martin St. Louis, who has won the Lady Byng the past two seasons. "Ive tried to match my game after his," Eberle said. "Actually, I got a stick the other day when we went and played them. You watch the intensity he brings to the game and hes able to play on the edge and win battles without causing his team to go down a man. Eberle says he tries to play as smart as he can, which includes avoiding penalties. "A lot of games now have to do with special teams," he said. "If youre taking penalties, a lot of times you dont give yourself a chance to win." In terms of points-per-game, Nugent-Hopkins is the runaway leader among rookies. He leads first-year players with 22 power-play points, including 19 assists. A deft passer, hes the big reason Edmontons power play, near the bottom of the league in recent years, has been at or near the top this season. Landeskog, selected second overall, will garner plenty of votes, too. A rugged winger. Landeskog brings a physical element Nugent-Hopkins does not and he has played a significant part in Colorado contending for a playoff spot. "Obviously, theres been lots of talk about it," Nugent-Hopkins said. "Its in the back of my mind, but Im just focusing on helping the team out. "Were playing for a lot right now. We want to finish out the season as strong as possible because the way we finish this year will be a good indication of how were going to start next year." "The best thing I can do to help myself is help the team any way I can," he added. "Theres been a couple injuries, setbacks and stuff, but for the most part I think its been great. Its been a lot of fun. I got lucky coming to a team like this." cheap custom jerseys wholesale jerseys store cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
