Authentic Tyler Thornburg Jersey .Ectot, a 9-1 shot, set the pace for the 1+ miles over the rain-softened course in a race with only four runners. Flintshire, the 1-5 choice, rallied under Javier Castellano on the final turn but was no match for the pace-setter.I was surprised because I think he is one of the best horses in the country, Castellano said. It was really soft ground and heavy. I think he didnt like it much.The Hirsch was one of five stakes on the first of two Super Saturdays at Belmont Park featuring Breeders Cup prep races.Ectot paid $20.80 and $4.40. Flintshire was second, ending his string of Grade 1 victories at three. He returned $2.10. There was no show betting.The victory gave Ectot, a 5-year-old trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Jose Ortiz, a spot in the $4 million Turf on Nov. 5 at Santa Anita.Ectot joined the Pletcher barn this year after starting his career in Europe. He was winless in two modest starts this season before the Hirsch upset.He went off form in his last few starts in Europe but came to us in great condition, Pletcher said. His races leading up to this were sneaky good and he seemed to be improving.Improving all the way to the Breeders Cup.Todays race was a big step, Pletcher said. We dont anticipate well get a lot of rain in California but, at the same time, hes run well on firm ground.Twilight Eclipse was third, followed by Money Multiplier.In other stakes results: Joking ($10 to win) earned the other guaranteed Breeders Cup spot with a dramatic rally in the mud to take the $350,000 Vosburgh for sprinters.It was the first Grade 1 victory for both owner-trainer Charlton Baker and jockey Manny Franco.He used to be a horse that was always jittery, Baker said. Hes gotten calmer as hes gotten older. The price, when I got him for $20,000, I thought was a bargain.It was the fourth straight win for the 7-year-old gelding, who is now heading to the $1.5 million Breeders Cup Sprint.- Forever Unbridled ($3.50) cruised to a commanding victory under a hand ride by Joel Rosario to take the $400,000 Beldame for fillies and mares.The 4-year-old filly trained by Dallas Stewart got her third win in five stakes starts this season.- Paulassilverlining ($5.60) rallied six wide in the stretch to beat Quezon by three quarters of a length in the $300,000 Gallant Bloom for filly and mare sprinters.It was the fourth win in seven starts this season for the 4-year-old trained by Michelle Nevin.- The $200,000 Pilgrim, the other turf stakes on the card, also went to a frontrunner as Oscar Performance ($5.40) romped to a six-length victory in the race for 2-year-olds.The colt logged his second win in three starts.

PHILADELPHIA -- For the Philadelphia Phillies, its hittin season.Jerad Eickhoff pitched neatly into the eighth inning, Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco hit two-run homers and the Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 8-2 on Monday.After struggling offensively much of the year, the Phillies have swung the bats better than any team in baseball the past couple weeks. This is the time of the year former manager Charlie Manuel likes to call hittin season.The Phillies have double-digit hits in 10 of the last 13 games and lead the majors with a .321 batting average during that stretch. Their first eight hits against Joel De La Cruz (0-2) went for extra bases.I cant complain about the hitting anymore, manager Pete Mackanin said. The hitting continued and its great to see. When you see a pitcher not pitching well, you have to take advantage of it.Eickhoff (6-9) gave up two runs and five hits, striking out eight in 7 2/3 innings to win for the fourth time in five decisions.I feel good mechanically and mentally, Eickhoff said. Just try not to change anything.After sweeping three games in Arizona and taking two of three from the defending World Series champion Royals, the Phillies didnt let up against the worst team in the NL.They jumped on De La Cruz in the second inning. Six extra-base hits led to a season-high seven runs in the inning.Cameron Rupp and Tommy Joseph hit doubles. Cesar Hernandez ripped an RBI triple. Herrera hit one out to deep right-center for his 10th homer. After Peter Bourjos hit a double, Franco hit his 15th homer to left-center to make it 7-1.I think confidence breeds success, Rupp said. Our confidence is through the roof.Erick Aybar lined a solo shot out to right for a 1-0 lead in the first. Aybar snapped a streak of 217 at-bats without a homer. He haadnt gone deep since Oct. Authentic Dustin Pedroia Jersey. . 3, 2015 for the Angels against the Rangers.De La Cruz allowed seven runs -- four earned -- and nine hits in six innings in his second career start.We had a tough inning. He had a tough inning, Braves manager Brian Snitker said. He got the ball up a lot. Some balls got hit hard. But to his credit, he got us through six innings.Eickhoff, who had the longest outing of his career, hasnt given up more than three runs in seven straight starts. Hes lowered his ERA from 4.07 to 3.30 in that span.Hes a bulldog, Mackanin said. He goes out there to win and works extremely hard.STANDINGSThe Phillies (38-46) have won six of seven. The Braves (28-55) have lost six of eight.STREAKINGBourjos extended his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games. He has raised his average from .278 from .217. ...

The last pitchers with as many quality starts in their first 25 career games were Jacob deGrom (20) and Masahiro Tanaka (19).WE WANT A HITA Phillies fan seated in the second deck behind home plate chanted We want a hit incessantly during the second inning.
