    导出博客文章PITTSBURGH -- Homer Bailey knew before he finished warming up that his second start since Tommy John surgery wasnt going to be as smooth as his first. Cheap Nike Epic React Flyknit Blue .Ivan Nova pitched seven innings to win his first start with Pittsburgh, Bailey didnt make it out of the fourth inning and the Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on Saturday night.Bailey (1-1) allowed five runs and eight hits in three-plus innings. He struck out four and walked one. He was coming off a promising season debut, limiting San Diego to two runs and five hits over 5 2/3 innings in a 3-2 win on July 31.There wasnt acute pain but I just didnt feel very good, Bailey said. I couldnt finish my pitches. I knew before the game it might be a problem but I was hoping to throw enough pitches to get us through until we could get the lead to the bullpen.I know this is part of recovery process but it doesnt feel good when you cost your team the game. The bullpen pitched great but the starter didnt.Nova (8-6) was acquired from the New York Yankees on Monday for two players to be named and gave up three runs and six hits with five strikeouts and no walks. He had spent his entire seven-year career with New York.Nova pitched more than six innings just three times in 15 starts with the Yankees this season.I did what I wanted to do -- be a little bit aggressive in the strike zone, Nova said. I got a lot of strikes and got quick outs.Starling Marte welcomed reliever Josh Smith, who took over for Bailey, with a two-run single in the fourth to give the Pirates a 5-2 lead. Marte and Josh Harrison each had two hits for Pittsburgh, which entered three games out of the second NL wild card.Tony Watson pitched a perfect ninth for his second save in three chances since All-Star closer Mark Melancon was traded to the Washington Nationals. Watson blew the save Friday night but the Pirates rallied for a 3-2 win.The Reds Brandon Phillips hit two solo home runs off Nova for the 13th multihomer game of his 15-year career. The second baseman raised his season total to eight but had last homered May 7 and ended a career-long streak of 286 at-bats without connecting.Phillips is 9 for 15 with six RBI and six runs in his last four games.I dont keep tabs on that stuff too much but everyone else does, Reds manager Bryan Price said. It seems right now hes getting the barrel on the bat every time hes up to bat and the results are starting to show.Reds shortstop Zack Cozart extended his hitting streak to 14 games.Phillips second home run cut the Reds deficit to 5-3 in the seventh. He also homered in the second when Tucker Barnhart had an RBI single to put Cincinnati ahead 2-1.The Pirates scored twice against Bailey in the third to move in front 3-2. John Jaso was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded with two outs and Francisco Cervelli followed with an RBI single.The Pirates won their second game in a row following a 1-5 stretch while the Reds lost back-to-back games for the first time since dropping three in a row from July 8-10. The loss also ended Cincinnatis streak of six consecutive series victories since the break.UP NEXTReds: RHP Dan Straily (6-6, 3.80 ERA) will start Sunday in the finale of the three-game series and try to extend his streak of six straight quality starts.Pirates: RHP Gerrit Cole (7-6, 2.73) is 0-5 with a 5.30 ERA in seven career starts against Cincinnati.

BOULDER, Colo. -- Home-cooked meals at her house, featuring all the lasagna the players could eat and a game of hide-and-seek with her kids. A more lighthearted atmosphere at practice, complete with friendly football contests.In no time, first-year Colorado basketball coach JR Payne has changed the course and culture of the 18th-ranked Buffaloes. At 8-0, theyve already surpassed their win total (seven) from a season ago.This amount of success so early is somewhat of a surprise. Payne figured it might take a little bit more time to install her system. But her players instantly bought in and now theyre off and rolling.We have a great group of girls here, who just play their hearts out, said Payne, whose team hosts rival Colorado State on Thursday night. But I definitely did not expect to start this way.A little bonding went a long way. The first thing Payne did after being hired from Santa Clara last March was chat with each player. Just a get-to-know-you session. Whats your family like? Hopes and aspirations? That sort of thing.We really worked to build relationships with the kids, because we didnt recruit any of them, said Payne, who was 23-9 in her final season at Santa Clara. We didnt know any of them.But she could see their work ethic. Hard to miss, actually.Guards Kennedy Leonard and Alexis Robinson were always on the floor whenever she walked past the gym.Turns out, those two had adopted what they termed their 7-to-9 rule. They showed up each day from 7 to 9 a.m. and again from 7 to 9 p.m. to get in some extra shooting. The workouts actually started before Payne was brought on board and they would sometimes be joined by other players. Simply doing their part to bounce back from a 7-23 season a year ago that led to the exit of coach Linda Lappe.That (extra work) was for us, our team, because we were sick of losing, Leonard said.Payne didnt ask about last season. It didnt matter. This was a new beginning as the Buffaloes try to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012-13.Were a very positive staff and always upbeat, encouraging, Payne said. Cheap Nike Epic React Flyknit Pink. We have a lot of fun with our team.Like the other day, when the Colorado football team was playing Washington in the Pac-12 Championship game. The basketball team decided to play a little football. Later, they had dinner at their coachs house as they took in the game. They even played with her three kids.And last weekend, Leonard & Co. took two of Paynes children to see the movie, Moana.Everything with us is about family, said Leonard, a sophomore from Southlake, Texas. Constantly hearing that day in and day out, it builds an even stronger team and unity.The Buffaloes have taken to heart the three pillars of Paynes program -- be the toughest team on the floor, be the hardest-working squad and play with discipline. Theyve won by an average of 25.8 points and knocked off No. 15 Kentucky 79-69 on Nov. 19.We give everyone a role on the team that plays to their strength, said Payne, whose real name is Ali-Marie but was nicknamed JR as a kid by her father after getting into fights with her brother. Its an ode to the character J.R. Ewing in the show Dallas.Paynes system is a hybrid of what she ran at Santa Clara. They push the pace at times and theyre aggressive on defense. Also making the Buffaloes difficult is that they have seven players averaging at least five points, with Leonard leading the way at a 16.3.No one has to go for 30 for us to be successful, Payne said. All these different players, on any given night, have the ability to put the ball in the basket. Thats such a great thing for a first-year coach.So is this: A little chip on the shoulder of the players. Just to show everyone this program is on the rise again.Expect the unexpected, Leonard said. Because every day we go into practice and work on something new to try and get better. Well probably surprise a few people along the way.
