ALLEN PARK Josh Allen Jersey , Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have many players, along with their general manager and coach, with ties to the New England Patriots.Jermaine Kearse, in a sense, is no exception.The veteran receiver had one of the most memorable catches in a Super Bowl in 2016 while playing for the Seattle Seahawks against New England when Matt Patricia was its defensive coordinator.He made a 33-yard acrobatic catch after the ball bounced off his body four times with 1:06 left to put Seattle in position for a go-ahead touchdown, but the Patriots held on to win.“Kind of joked about it a little bit, but quickly moved on,” said Patricia, who in his second season as Detroit’s coach. “Great, little tie-in to our history together, which is fun.”Kearse has 255 career catches for 3,290 yards and 17 touchdowns, but he’s coming his worst season since 2013. He had 37 receptions for 371 yards last year for the New York Jets.“It was just an unfortunate year,” Kearse said. “We had some changes and things just didn’t work out. I’m ready to just move and be able to get back on the field and show what I can do and what I did two years ago.”With the Jets in 2017, Kearse reached career highs in catches (65) and yards receiving (810) while matching his best season with five touchdowns.The former Washington star earned a spot on Seattle’s team as an undrafted rookie in 2012 and started 51 games for the franchise under offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/jawaan-taylor-jersey-cheap , who is in his first season with the Lions.“Looking over the playbook just kind of refreshed my memory,” Kearse said. “A lot of things I’m able to pick up pretty quickly.”The Lions addressed a need earlier in the offseason, signing Danny Amendola, to become the slot receiver they missed after trading Golden Tate during last season to Philadelphia. On the third and final day of mandatory minicamp, they added depth by signing Kearse and releasing Jordan Smallwood.If Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones can bounce back from injury-shortened seasons, Matthew Stafford may have four solid options to throw to at wide receiver thanks to the addition of Kearse.“He’s played a lot of meaningful football in this league and has done some really great things,” Stafford said. “He has some history with Bevell. I was on the same page sometimes with him and not on the same page other times. It was our first practice. He was just thrown in there and was rolling with it.” Ozzie Albies turned to teammate Danny Santana in the dugout and told him he was about to end the game with one swing.

 

”It’s time to go home right now,” Albies said. ”It’s time to go deep. I went up there with one mentality, of hitting a home run.”

Albies hit a tiebreaking homer in the 11th inning off Dylan Floro and the Atlanta Braves snapped the Cincinnati Reds‘ seven-game winning streak with a 5-4 victory on Monday night.

Albies knocked Floro’s first pitch, a changeup, into the right-field seats. Albies doubled twice before hitting Atlanta’s fifth game-ending homer this season. He’s hitting .455 over his last seven games, and his 17 homers are tied for third-most in the NL.

”I’m just trying to hit the ball where it’s pitched,” he said. ”Put a good swing on it.”

Rain delayed the start of the game by 1 hour, 20 minutes, the 10th delay at SunTrust Park this season and the third in the last four games.

The NL East-leading Braves have won eight of 12. They improved to 2-7 in extra innings.

Luke Jackson (1-0) Josh Oliver Jersey , the seventh Atlanta pitcher, faced four batters in the 11th to earn the win. Floro (0-1) was the Reds’ sixth pitcher.

Braves reliever Lucas Sims blew a two-run lead in the sixth, allowing three straight singles, issuing a bases-loaded walk and giving up an RBI groundout to pinch-hitter Adam Duvall that made it 3-all.

Scott Schebler doubled to begin the seventh, advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt and made it 4-3 on Joey Votto’s RBI groundout. The Braves tied it at 4-all in the seventh on Santana’s RBI double.

Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz, reinstated from the disabled list with right triceps tightness, allowed one run, one hit and four walks in five innings. He struck out four while throwing 91 pitches.

Foltynewicz gave up his first hit to Schebler, whose 10th homer cut the lead to 2-1 in the fifth. Over his last eight starts, Foltynewicz has a 0.96 ERA.

”He had a really fresh arm and just pounded the zone on us and made us work,” Schebler said. ”We made him work as well. We weren’t going down easy. We were grinding out at-bats and made him get out of the game probably a lot quicker than he wanted to.”

Reds starter Tyler Mahle loaded the bases with no out in the fifth before a groundout put the Braves up 3-1. Mahle gave up hits, three runs and four walks with five strikeouts in five innings.

Cincinnati was coming off a four-game home sweep of the Chicago Cubs and had won 10 of 12, but the Reds are still stuck in last place in the NL Central, five games out of fourth place.

”Schebler gave us a chance a couple of times,” interim Reds manager Jim Riggleman said. ”Tough one to lose http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey-cheap , but we did a lot of good things again, and if we play like that we’re going to win a lot of ballgames.”

MOVING UP

Markakis, the NL hits leader, singled in the third to reach 100 hits. He leads the league in doubles and multi-hit games and ranks second to Cincinnati’s Scooter Gennett in batting average. Markakis went 2 for 4.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Reds: INF Nick Senzel, the No. 2 overall draft pick of 2016, had season-ending surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right index finger. He suffered the injury on Friday with Triple-A Louisville. In 44 games at Triple-A Louisville, Senzel hit .310 with six homers and 25 RBIs.

Braves: LF Ronald Acuna Jr., sidelined since May 28 with a left knee sprain and bruises to his knee and lower back, will move down in the batting order when he returns from a rehab assignment later this week. He batted in the No. 2 hole in 25 of his 29 games before getting hurt. Manager Brian Snitker likes how Inciarte and Albies are complementing each other in the top two spots.

UP NEXT

Reds: RHP Matt Harvey (2-5, 5.66 ERA) will make his ninth start for Cincinnati since getting traded from the New York Mets on May 8. He is 2-3 with a 4.79 ERA with the Reds and is 3-7 with a 5.27 ERA in 12 career starts and one relief appearance against Atlanta.

Braves: RHP Anibal Sanchez (3-1, 2.55 ERA) will face the Reds for the first time since 2015. He is 2-1 with a 2.22 ERA in four starts this month.
