    PARIS -- Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette remembered how to take penalties but his teammates forget how to defend in a 3-1 home loss to Guingamp in the French league on Saturday.A fifth defeat in six games heaps the pressure on Lyon coach Bruno Genesio.After finishing second last season, Lyon is down in eighth place and trails leader Nice by 10 points, having played a game more.I sense that I am in difficulty. I wont run away from my responsibilities, Genesio said. Im not thinking about my own situation, we have to face up to this.Lacazette, who scored 48 league goals in the past two seasons, went some way to making up for his midweek penalty miss against Juventus by scoring from the spot near halftime.On Tuesday, his penalty was saved by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and the miss proved costly as Lyon lost 1-0.But Swedish goalie Karl-Johan Johnsson does not have the presence of Buffon, and Lacazette made no mistake this time, drilling a low shot down the middle as Johnsson gambled wrongly by diving to his right.It was his seventh league goal of the season and third from the spot. The penalty was given after midfielder Maxime Gonalons was fouled by Moustapha Diallo.Lyon deserved to be ahead but then fell apart at the start of the second half.Striker Yannis Salibur scored within a minute of the restart and midfielder Marcus Coco made it 2-1 after turning in veteran forward Jimmy Briands cross.Shortly after the second goal, Lyons fans displayed a banner reading Stop Les Excuses ... Gagnez (Stop the excuses ... Win).Lacazette was upended in the area and should have been awarded a penalty midway through the second half.But Coco scored again and Guingamp finished the stronger side with teen midfielder Ludovic Blas going close to making it 4-1 in injury time.Its a big blow on the head for us, a massive disappointment, Genesio said. I feel for the players, the president and the fans.Monaco won 6-2 on Friday to move up to second spot.Nice plays away at Metz on Sunday, while in Sunday nights big game third-place Paris Saint-Germain takes on bitter rival Marseille.ALSOToulouse missed the chance to move up to third place after drawing 0-0 away to eighth-place Angers.Meanwhile, winger Kamil Grosicki scored twice in the second half as sixth-place Rennes rallied to win 2-1 at Nantes, which took the lead through striker Emiliano Sala.Bordeaux, which led through former France winger Jeremy Menez, is in seventh place after drawing 1-1 at home to last-place Nancy.Dijon moved closer to mid-table thanks to a last-minute winner from defender Jordan Loties against Lorient, which slumped to last place.Elsewhere, striker Eder -- the scorer of a dramatic winner in extra time to help Portugal beat France 1-0 to win the European Championship final in July -- was on target as struggling Lille beat Corsican side Bastia 2-1. Hydro Flask Black Friday Sale . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Hydro Flask 40 Oz Cyber Monday .com) - The Montreal Canadiens embark on their first road trip of the season as they head out west to battle the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. http://www.waterbottlecybermonday.com/ Hydro Flask Cyber Monday Sale . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Swell Wood Water Bottle . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. TORONTO -- A big win for Toronto was overshadowed by bad news about Marco Estradas sore back.The Blue Jays stopped Clevelands franchise-record 14-game winning streak with a 9-6 victory on Saturday, scoring three runs in the eighth inning to overcome a cycle by Indians outfielder Rajai Davis.Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki homered for Toronto, which lost 2-1 in 19 innings on Friday, matching the longest game in Blue Jays history. Jason Grilli (2-2) pitched one inning for the win.Estrada left after five innings, unable to continue because of back pain.I dont know if I can do this again, he said. If it hurts as much as it did today, Im probably going to have to watch the next game.Estrada allowed three runs and five hits in five innings, failing to extend his major league-record stretch of 12 starts of six innings pitched with no more than five hits allowed.The right-hander said he likely would have an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, which first bothered him in spring training and flared up again in June.Still, Estrada said he had no intention of skipping Saturdays start.We just played a 19-inning game and used everybody, he said. I dont know what else we were going to so Im going to take the ball and give as much as I can.Right-hander Drew Hutchison was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo before the game. Initially expected to return to the minors afterward, Toronto chose to keep Hutchison around in case Estrada needs to skip his next start.Donaldson hit a tying solo shot off Dan Otero in the seventh and then made it 7-6 with an RBI single in the eighth. Michael Saunders added a two-run double, and Roberto Osuna pitched the ninth for his 16th save.A contentious replay call in the eighth gave Toronto the decisive run. Ezequiel Carrera drew a one-out walk off Otero (2-1) and went to second on a base hit by Devon Travis. Tommy Hunter came on to face Donaldson, who singled into shallow center.Carrera had to hold up to make sure the ball dropped, and was called out by home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. Toronto challenged the caall and Carrera was ruled safe after the review.ddddddddddddI definitely thought I had him in the leg, Indians catcher Chris Gimenez said. The explanation they gave us was his arm got in there before I tagged him. I dont necessarily think that was the case.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said his team caught a break by getting the call overturned.We liked what we saw but you never know for sure, Gibbons said.Indians manager Terry Francona said he was shocked when the call was overturned.They keep telling us it has to be conclusive, Francona said. I will look forward to an explanation that I understand. As of now, from what Ive seen, I dont know how they did that.Davis became the eighth player in Cleveland history to hit for the cycle. He led off the game with a homer, tripled home a run in the third, doubled and scored in the seventh and singled in the ninth.20-20With Encarnacion (22) and Donaldson (20), Toronto is one of two major league teams to boast a pair of 20-homer sluggers. Baltimore, with Mark Trumbo and Chris Davis, is the other.BEEN A WHILEThe last player to hit for the cycle against Toronto was Hall of Famer George Brett, who did it on July 25, 1990.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: 3B Juan Uribe left after being hit on the right hand in the sixth. Uribe got an RBI when he was hit by Joe Biagini with the bases loaded. Francona said X-rays were negative but said Uribe may have lost a fingernail. Francisco Lindor came on to play shortstop in the seventh and Jose Ramirez moved to third.Blue Jays: INF Ryan Goins, one of two position players to pitch for Toronto on Friday, was placed on the 15-day DL with a sore right forearm.UP NEXTIndians: RHP Corey Kluber (8-7, 3.50 ERA) pitches on Sunday. He has won back-to-back starts, allowing two runs and six hits in 17 innings.Blue Jays: LHP J.A. Happ (10-3, 3.70 ERA) gets the ball on Sunday. He is 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA in five career games against the Indians, including four starts.
