DETROIT -- With the trade deadline minutes away, Austin Jackson saw a replacement on the top step of the dugout and realized what was happening. Discount Jerseys Custom . "I pretty much kind of knew what was going on," Jackson said. "Just kind of a sad moment right there knowing that last run off the field, it was pretty tough with all your teammates that you played with." Jackson was traded by the Tigers on Thursday in a three-team deal that brought star left-hander David Price to Detroit. But the timing of the move allowed him one last ovation from the home fans. With one out in the seventh inning of a 7-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox, Jackson was pulled from the game and made the long jog from centre field to the dugout. Left-hander Drew Smyly was also involved in the deal. He started and pitched five innings, although he didnt have to be taken out abruptly like Jackson was. The game quickly became a secondary concern in the Motor City when news of the trade began circulating, but Detroit lost for the fifth time in six games. Moises Sierra had four hits, and Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton added three apiece for the White Sox. Joakim Soria (1-4) -- another pitcher Detroit recently traded for -- hit Paul Konerko with the bases loaded in the seventh to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead. Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 games. Ronald Belisario (4-7) got the win in relief, and Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his sixth save. Chicagos John Danks allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings. There had been speculation he might be dealt before the deadline. "Truthfully it wasnt even a topic of conversation in here between anybody," Danks said. "Theres nothing anybody can do about it. Its part of the game and yeah, I dont think that had any effect on any of us to be honest." Instead it was Detroits Thursday starter who ended up being traded. Smyly pitched five innings and allowed four runs and 11 hits. Detroits Torii Hunter and J.D. Martinez hit back-to-back homers in the third. SORIAS STRUGGLES: Soria came on in the seventh in a tie game and struck out Eaton, only to have the Chicago hitter reach base on a wild pitch. After a single by Alexei Ramirez and an intentional walk to Abreu, Soria got pinch-hitter Conor Gillaspie on a popup before hitting Konerko. "I wouldnt say that was a rough outing to be honest with you," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. "I know he gave up the run and he gave up that hit, but I thought it was a pretty good outing." AMAZING ABREU: Abreu doubled twice off Smyly and extended his hitting streak. The Chicago slugger has hit safely in 38 of his last 39 games. Only two rookies have had longer hitting streaks for the White Sox: Guy Curtright had a 26-gamer in 1943, and Chico Carrasquel had a 24-gamer in 1950.

PHILADELPHIA -- A judge overseeing thousands of NFL concussion-linked lawsuits says lawyers are still working to address her concerns about a proposed $765 million fund. Cheap NHL Jerseys . U.S. District Judge Anita Brody says she fears the fund may not be large enough to cover up to 20,000 retired players for 65 years. Lawyers have given her more data to weigh since she rejected the deal on a preliminary basis in January. The judge says in a Thursday order the parties are continuing to work with the court "to address the issues." She also has clarified an order this week denying approval of the deal was not a new ruling. She says she was simply adding the January ruling to some case files. The judge is expected to hold hearings in the case this year. Wholesale NHL Jerseys .

Even a draw would have moved the Kansas City club above Columbus.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Terrell Suggs isnt one to get rattled. The Baltimore Ravens linebacker has made a career out of being the one who agitates, not the one who gets agitated.For a night anyway, the Pittsburgh Steelers found a way to reverse the roles.Ben Roethlisberger threw six touchdown passes and the Ravens lost their cool in a 43-23 loss on Sunday night. Baltimore turned it over twice, gave up four sacks and was flagged 10 times while losing its second straight.We didnt respond well when bad things started to happen, Suggs said. Weve got to be better. We cant be kidding ourselves anymore. We have a lot of work to do.Better get started soon. The Ravens (5-4) fell into last place in the crowded AFC North with the loss after it failed to sweep the season series from the surging Steelers (6-3), who have won three straight.Its frustrating anytime you lose and dont play the way you expect to play, but weve got to get over it and keep working on it, Baltimore wide receiver Torrey Smith said. Nobodys going to feel sorry for us.Certainly not Pittsburgh. The Ravens dominated the Steelers 26-6 in Week 2, emerging from a chaotic few days surrounding the release of running back Ray Rice by physically overwhelming the Steelers.This time, it was the other way around. Joe Flacco threw for 303 yards with two touchdowns and an interception but absorbed a series of shots from a relentless Pittsburgh pass rush.They come after you and you have to get the ball in someones hands, coach John Harbaugh said. You have to make a play to take them out of it. We didnt do enough to discourage that at all really at any point in the game.There were no such issues for Roethlisberger.A week after passing for a franchise-record six touchdowns against Indianapolis, Roethlisberger duplicated the feat to help Pittsburgh (6-3) win its third straight. Roethlisbergers 12 touchdown passes over the last two games broke the mark of 11 set by Tom Flores for Oakland in 1963 and matched by New Englands Tom Brady in 2007.Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 138 yards and a score. Rookie Martavis Bryant hauled in two scoring receptions and has five touchdowns in three games.The renewal of one of the NFLs most physical rivalries traded its usual taut, low-scoring style for something decidedly more spectacular but no less physical. When Roethlisberger wasnt dissecting Baltimores depleted secondary with his expanding number of targetss, the teams were trading punches and penalties. NHL Jerseys China . Just not the lead, not after a resurgent Pittsburgh defence gave Roethlisberger all the momentum he would need to continue the finest stretch of his 11-year career.We took advantage of turnovers our defence gave us, Roethlisberger said. We were slow starting but made plays down the stretch.The Ravens were in front 7-0 midway through the second quarter and the Steelers were sputtering when a little vintage Pittsburgh defence — led by suddenly youthful 36-year-old linebacker James Harrison — turned the tide.Cornerback Brice McCain raced 26 yards following a Lorenzo Taliaferro fumble to set up a 5-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to LeVeon Bell, and Jason Worilds picked off Flacco and returned it 30 yards to put Roethlisberger in position to find Bryant for a 19-yard score to put the Steelers up 14-7.The Ravens, playing without injured cornerback Jimmy Smith, simply couldnt keep up. Roethlisberger ended the half with a perfect 47-yard strike to Markus Wheaton.Even when things went wrong, they went right for Pittsburgh. The Steelers tacked on a 2-point conversion following Wheatons score when punter Brad Wing made up for a botched hold by scrambling to his right and connecting with tight end Matt Spaeth to make it 22-10 at the break.Rather than sit on the lead, the Steelers kept attacking. Roethlisbergers 25 completions went to eight different receivers, though he relied on an old one and his new favourite to help the Steelers end a pivotal three-game homestand with a perfect 3-0 record.Roethlisberger found Brown for a 54-yard catch-and-run early in the fourth quarter to make it 29-10. Jacoby Jones responded with a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, but Roethlisberger then hit the 6-foot-4 Bryant for an 18-yard strike and capped another remarkable night with a 33-yard score to Spaeth with 1:51 remaining.I guess once you get in the groove it is what it is, Suggs said. He made some lays. His receivers made some plays for him. He played a phenomenal game.NOTES: Steelers S Troy Polamalu left with a sprained left knee in the second quarter and did not return. ... Baltimore TE Owen Daniels had six receptions for 53 yards a week after having minor knee surgery. ...
