NEW YORK -- Sure, John Mayberry Jr. Cal Ripken Jersey . has heard the talk: The Philadelphia Phillies are looking for a right-handed bat. "Yeah, Im aware of that," he said. Hes got a candidate -- himself. Mayberry drove in five runs to set another career best, Vance Worley pitched well enough and the Phillies got off to a strong start after the all-star break by beating the New York Mets 7-2 on Friday night. Mayberry singled and doubled with the bases loaded. It marked the second straight game where he established a personal high in RBIs -- on the Phillies final day of the first half, he hit three doubles and drove in four runs against Atlanta. "I definitely feel like I have a great opportunity in front of me," he said. Now in his third stay with the Phillies this season, Mayberry is beginning to blossom. Of his last 12 hits, 10 have been for extra bases. And hes made good use of some batting tips suggested by manager Charlie Manuel. "I like big, tall, lanky guys," Manuel said. Raul Ibanez contributed a home run and a diving catch in left field for the NL East leaders. The Phillies (58-34) own the best record in the majors -- no surprise, they also have the best earned-run average (3.01) in the big leagues. "Weve got to stay after it," Manuel said. "If we keep playing the way we have the last five years, well be fine." Promoted from triple-A before the game for his fourth stint of the year with Philadelphia, Worley (5-1) pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning. The rookie right-hander, one of the few pitchers who wears glasses on the mound, walked off with a 2.15 ERA. Worley picked up his first career RBI and avenged his worst start as a major leaguer. The Mets tagged him for eight runs and 12 hits in only three innings at Citi Field on May 29, his lone loss this season. Phillies closer Ryan Madson came off the disabled list and pitched a perfect seventh inning, striking out two. Philadelphia put all-star third baseman Placido Polanco on the disabled list because of inflammation in his lower back. Carlos Beltran hit his 14th homer as the Mets lost their third straight and dropped back to .500. They have gone 1-2 in all three previous series against Philadelphia this year. "This team has a little window to see where were headed. Tomorrow, we have to pick up the pieces and try to win the series," losing pitcher R.A. Dickey said. Down 4-0, New York loaded the bases against the 23-year-old Worley in the sixth with two walks and a single. Manuel summoned lefty reliever Juan Perez, who struck out pinch-hitter Scott Hairston on a wild pitch that scored a run and then retired pinch-hitter Ronny Paulino on a grounder. "I definitely wanted to finish that inning," Worley said. Mayberry broke it open with a three-run double in the eighth, which came right after shortstop Ruben Tejadas two-out error. Mayberry was the first batter faced by Ryota Igarashi, recalled from triple-A earlier in the day to fill the roster spot left when closer Francisco Rodriguez was traded to Milwaukee. Mayberry hit a two-run single in the second off Dickey (4-8). Worley followed Mayberrys go-ahead hit with a groundout that made it 3-0. Ibanez ran into the alley to catch Tejadas leadoff drive in the fifth. In the sixth, Ibanez hit his 13th home run and rounded the bases to a mix of boos from Mets fans and calls of "Rauuul!" from Phillies rooters who made the two-hour drive. NOTES: Antonio Bastardo pitched a perfect ninth for the Phils. He has not allowed a hit in his last 13 appearances, spanning 12 innings. ... Mets CF Angel Pagan raced back for an over-the-shoulder grab that robbed Ryan Howard of extra bases. ... Batting .107, Dickey singled in the third. He hesitated when Justin Turner hit a blooper that bounced in front of RF Domonic Brown and would have easily been forced at second, but Brown bobbled the ball for an error. Dickeys shaky baserunning cost Turner a hit -- he was given a fielders choice. ... Mets SS Jose Reyes (left hamstring) did some running Friday and plans to run hard on the bases Sunday. It will then be determined if he can come off the DL when hes eligible Monday. Reyes sidestepped questions about how this weeks trade of Rodriguez to Milwaukee will affect his status -- he can become a free agent after the season. "I dont know," he said. ... Mets star 3B David Wright (stress fracture in his lower back) played his first rehab game at class A St. Lucie. He doubled and scored his first time up, then walked and struck out. He started at 3B and left in the sixth inning of the rain-delayed Florida State League game at Lakeland. Manny Machado Flexbase Jersey . Its the fourth meeting of the season between these teams with each game being decided by a single goal. Kevin Gausman Orioles Jersey . "It was one of the best shows ever," said the Raptors guard, disagreeing with the critics. "Its really what people wanted to see. You couldnt see those dunks without three players on the court so it worked out for the best I think.NEW YORK -- Despite seven months of international outcry, Russias law restricting gay-rights activity remains in place. Yet the eclectic protest campaign has heartened activists in Russia and caught the attention of its targets -- including organizers and sponsors of the Sochi Olympics that open on Feb. 7. Over the past two weeks, two major sponsors, Coca-Cola and McDonalds, have seen some of their Sochi-related social media campaigns commandeered by gay-rights supporters who want the companies to condemn the law. Several activists plan to travel to Sochi, hoping to team up with sympathetic athletes to protest the law while in the Olympic spotlight. And on Friday, a coalition of 40 human-rights and gay-rights groups from the U.S., Western Europe and Russia -- including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the Human Rights Campaign -- released an open letter to the 10 biggest Olympic sponsors, urging them to denounce the law and run ads promoting equality for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people. "LGBT people must not be targeted with violence or deprived of their ability to advocate for their own equality," the letter said. "As all eyes turn toward Sochi, we ask you to stand with us." The law, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, bans pro-gay "propaganda" that could be accessible to minors -- a measure viewed by activists as forbidding almost any public expression of gay-rights sentiment. The law cleared parliament virtually unopposed and has extensive public support in Russia. Since July, when they launched a boycott of Russian vodka, activists have pressed the International Olympic Committee and Olympic sponsors to call for the laws repeal. Instead, the IOC and top sponsors have expressed general opposition to discrimination and pledged to ensure that athletes, spectators and others gathering for the Games would not be affected by the law. Putin has given similar assurances in regard to Sochi, but remains committed to the laws broader purposes. IOC President Thomas Bach has warned Olympic athletes that they are barred from political gestures while on medal podiums or in other official venues, but says they are free to make political statements at news conferences. One Olympian likely to speak out is gay Australian snowboarder Belle Brockhoff, who told Australias Courier-Mail newspaper that she plans to lambaste Putin. "After I compete, Im willing to rip on his ass," she told the newspaper. "Im not happy and theres a bunch of other Olympians who are not happy either." Brockhoff is one of several Olympians promising to display the logo P6 -- a reference to Principle Six of the Olympic Charter that says any form of discrimination "is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement." Hudson Taylor of Athlete Ally, an organizer of the P6 campaign, is among the activists going to Sochi. He hopes that some athletes, even if wary of wearing P6 symbols, will promote them via social media. Also heading to Sochi is Shawn Gaylord, advocacy counsel for Human Rights First. "We wont be looking to violate the law," he said. "But we think its important that human rights not get lost in the mix." President Barack Obama, who has criticized the Russian law, is skipping the Olympics and named a U.S. delegation that includes tennis great Billie Jean King and two other openly gay athletes. "The only way you break down barriers is by being there and meeting people and getting these issues out on the table -- doing it in an appropriate and diplomatic way," King told The Associated Press. Manny Machado Cream Jersey. In the U.S., recent protest initiatives have focused on Sochi sponsors, notably Coca-Cola and McDonalds. In McDonalds case, the companys #CheersToSochi Twitter hashtag has been used by activists in tweets condemning the Russian law and assailing McDonalds for not speaking out forcibly against it. Similarly, activists made use of an online "Id like to share a Coke with..." promotion to circulate images of Coke cans with labels such as "Gaybashers" and "Haters." The gay-rights group Queer Nation posted a video online interspersing images of embattled Russian gay-rights demonstrators into Cokes 1970s TV ad featuring the song, "Id Like to Teach the World to Sing." Coke then posted a clip of the original ad on its Facebook page, drawing a flood of negative comments from gay-rights supporters. Coke has responded with declarations of support for diversity and inclusiveness, which are themes of Cokes new Super Bowl advertising. A Coca-Cola spokeswoman, Ann Moore, said the company remained committed to the Olympics despite criticism from gay-rights activists. "We share these groups belief in human rights, equality, diversity and dignity for all, and we respect their right to protest peacefully," Moore said in an email. "We firmly believe, however, that supporting the Olympics focuses the world on the ideals that everyone strives for during the Games -- excellence, friendship and respect." Becca Hary, a McDonalds spokeswoman, made similar points. "Social media is all about conversation. Understandably, the LGBT community is focusing its conversation on the Russian legislation," she said in an email. "McDonalds is proud to be a top sponsor of the Olympics; our sponsorship dollars literally help the men and women who are working to achieve their Olympic dreams." Hary and Moore said their companies were conferring with the IOC about human rights. "We expect our ongoing engagement to include discussions on long-term, sustainable means for addressing human rights in the context of the Olympic Games," Moore wrote. Minky Worden, director of global initiatives at Human Rights Watch, predicted that sponsors would henceforth insist that the IOC make human rights a more important factor in selection of host cities. "There will be a reckoning after the Games," Worden said. "Olympic sponsorship is supposed to be the goose that lays the golden eggs, but this goose is not laying golden eggs. Its laying stinky, rotten eggs." The international gay-rights group All Out plans to target Olympic sponsors in demonstrations next Wednesday in several cities, including New York, London, Rio de Janeiro and St. Petersburg, Russia. Even if the Russian law endures, All Out executive director Andrew Banks considers the overall protest campaign a success. "Weve been able to elevate the voices and stories of Russian LGBT people ... and show there are people all over the world willing to stand behind them," he said. While expressing appreciation for the allies abroad, prominent Russian activist Anastasia Smirnova said she feared that "dangerous self-censorship" might deter some Olympians in Sochi from taking stands against the law. In an email Friday, she also worried about a possible backlash against Russian gays once the Olympic spotlight fades. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
