    ATLANTA -- Freddie Freemans bases-loaded, line-drive single off closer Sergio Romo capped a two-run rally in the ninth that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. B.J. Upton hit two homers off Chad Gaudin, but the Braves trailed 5-4 entering the ninth. Romo (3-3) walked pinch-hitter Evan Gattis, who was replaced by pinch-runner Reed Johnson, with one out. Andrelton Simmons followed with a grounder that skipped past third baseman Joaquin Arias for an error, putting runners on first and second. Jason Heyward followed with a liner that fell in front of left fielder Andres Torres, loading the bases. Justin Upton took a close 3-2 pitch for a ball to force in the tying run. The pitch, which had Upton backing away, was close to the inside part of the plate and Romo walked toward the plate to express his disagreement. Freeman then came through with the game-winning single to right field. Braves closer Craig Kimbrel (2-1) struck out Hunter Pence to end the ninth with runners on first and second. Pence drove in two runs. Gaudin gave up four runs on eight hits in five-plus innings. Pence had a run-scoring single in the Giants three-run third inning and a sacrifice fly in a two-run fifth. The Giants, who began the day 1 1/2 games behind first-place Arizona in the NL West, had won three straight. Braves starter Mike Minor gave up five runs, four earned, on seven hits and a walk in six innings. San Francisco relievers Jean Machi, Javier Lopez and Jeremy Affeldt combined for three scoreless innings before Romo blew the save in the ninth. B.J. Uptons long second-inning homer landed about halfway up the lower section of the left-field seats. Uptons two-run homer to centre field in the sixth drove in Brian McCann, who doubled. The homer cut San Franciscos lead to 5-4 and knocked Gaudin out of the game. Simmons committed two errors after beginning the day with only four miscues for the season. Simmons fielding error on Tony Abreus grounder led to an unearned run in the fifth. Buster Posey followed with a run-scoring double, which drove in Torres. Abreu scored on Pences fly ball to right field. Simmons made a wild throw after fielding an infield single by Juan Perez to open the sixth, but Minor pitched out of the jam. The Giants took the lead in the third inning with three runs on four hits, including back-to-back RBI doubles by Torres and Abreu, who had three hits. Pence added a run-scoring single. NOTES: The Braves will wait until after Sunday nights game to name a second pitcher to join Paul Maholm as the starters in Tuesdays doubleheader against the Mets.

Deandre Baker Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Junior middleweight titlist Liam Smith will attempt to make the third defense of his title on Saturday when he faces Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (47-1-1, 33 KOs) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.Englands Smith (23-0-1, 13 KOs) will be fighting outside of his home country for the first time, which poses an additional challenge in a fight he enters as the underdog despite holding the belt.If Smith wants to retain his title, he should respect the following keys:Remain patient (and opportunistic)Smith is a boxer who fights with controlled aggression. He rarely takes risks by throwing wild combinations and instead fights like a hunter, waiting for the right moment to throw his best shots. He is patient and has developed an efficient style. He shouldnt change this style against Alvarez. Its a style suited to frustrate the Mexican at first, but Smith will need to follow up with timely counterattacks to win the fight.Rely on your strengths?Smith does not have a varied arsenal. However, he tends to use his artillery wisely. The long right hand from the outside is his primary weapon, along with a short right from close range, and he should focus on both if he wants to hurt Alvarez. Smith has good reach and often uses it to his advantage. If we consider that defense is not Canelos strong point, the British fighter can make things hard for him if he persists with the right hand.Capitalize on mistakesAlvarez will enter the ring determined to take control of the fight and will take risks as he seeks to land his bestt shots.dddddddddddd Its in these moments that the Mexican often makes defensive mistakes. He opens his torso too much to throw hooks from outside or loses his cool when he misses with an overhand. His strong chin has enabled him to survive power punches from smaller opponents. But Smith is bigger, packs a punch and if he takes advantage of those errors to land his power shots, his chances of victory will increase.Stay focusedSmith will be fighting for the first time outside of England and will be facing an opponent who will likely be backed by more than 50,000 Mexican fans. Nerves and stage fright could be another enemy for Smith to overcome. The British fighter must stay calm and focused at all times to carry out his game plan and be determined when it comes to imposing himself and controlling the pace of the fight. This could prove key in the eyes of the judges if it ends up being a close fight.Dont forget Plan B!Defensively, there is no doubt that Smiths absolute priority should be to watch out for Alvarezs power shots. The offensive side, however, will be a battle of strategies. Both fighters may opt to play it safe and take few risks. If the fight becomes a tactical struggle and goes the distance, Alvarez, as the home fighter, is more likely to get the decision. Thats why Smiths corner needs to have an additional strategy for their fighter. Plan B could be the key to success.
