rounds ever seen in the sport. Stenson produced a sensational final

TORONTO -- Toronto FC versus Philadelphia Union games have followed the same path this season. Mack Hollins Youth Jersey . Toronto scored first, had a player sent off and then gave up a stoppage-time goal to Jack McInerny -- both off a long Sheanon Williams throw -- as the two earlier meetings ended in 1-1 ties. "They stole four points off us with the long throw in the dying minutes," said Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen. "That has kind of faded away from our game hasnt it? ... Those stoppage-time goals they fade away." The numbers seem to back Nelsen up. Once a generous provider of goals in the final 15 minutes, Toronto has given up four goals less in that period at 14 than the Los Angeles Galaxy this season. FC Dallas (15), the Montreal Impact (15) and Chivas USA (23) have also yielded more late scores in 2013. Tied for 14th with the New York Red Bulls in that category is hardly cause to celebrate but it is a step up for a team that has a history of giving late goals away. The good news for Nelsen this week is that Toronto (5-15-11) is coming off a rare win and has healthy personnel options. Forward Robert Earnshaw has recovered from a hamstring problem, leaving only striker Danny Koevermans (calf) and midfielder Matias Laba (toe) on the sidelines. The manager believes Toronto can do some damage as the season winds down. "Philadelphia, they have all the pressure on them," said Nelsen. "Their home fans will expect an easy win. Theyll expect to come and do a number on us. "All I can say is our guys are really motivated. We want to ruin a few guys seasons, to tell you the truth. Weve got three games to ruin some seasons and we want to win games. Its as simple as that." Toronto finishes its schedule against three teams in the playoff hunt, with games in Philadelphia, in Chicago and at home to the Montreal Impact. With Toronto out of the playoff picture once again, Nelsens players are working to retain their jobs ahead of another off-season overhaul. For some, the die has already been cast. Fullback Richard Eckersley, whose US$400,000-plus contract has been deemed too large, is expected to sit once again in favour of Mark Bloom for a fourth straight game. "Hes been fantastic. He wants the ball. He looks like a guy whos been in the league for a long time," Nelsen said of Bloom. "Hes playing a position where we should be worried because of his inexperience but were not," he added. "That shows you how well hes done." Nelsen acknowledges that Eckersley has committed no crime, other than wield a contract that is too big for the teams salary cap to handle. "Hes a fantastic fullback, hes a great fullback. In MLS, theres not one club that would not want Richard Eckersley," said Nelsen. But the manager is not about to shed any tears for the English fullback. "Hes on guaranteed money and he still gets paid. Theres guys out here on semi-guaranteed contracts on minimum (MLS) wage." Defender Steven Caldwell and midfielder Jonathan Osorio both return from suspension Saturday. Darel Russell will likely get another start in centre midfield. "Darel Russell has arguably been our best player in the last two games," said Nelsen. "Youve got to reward his application in the games." Philadelphia (11-10-9) has four games remaining with coach John Hackworth estimating it will make the playoffs with two wins and a draw. "This is a game where we really need to maximize the points," he is quoted on the teams official website. The Union are coming off a 1-0 win in Kansas City, with Conor Caseys goal ending a 346-minute scoreless streak dating back to Aug. 25 The shutout was the 11th of the season for Zac MacMath, tying him with Portlands Donovan Ricketts for most in the league. NOTES -- Toronto will wear white for the second week in a row, a consequence of the leagues breast cancer awareness campaign. Toronto goalie Joe Bendik wore all pink last week at home, prompting the referee to tell Torontos outfield players to switch to white because their red was too close in colour to Bendiks gear. With the Philadelphia goalie wearing pink this time, Toronto will stick to white. The game will also feature balls with pink trim ... A Philadelphia win would be a season-best 12th for the franchise. Sidney Jones Youth Jersey . -- Michigan coach John Beilein is willing to give Nik Stauskas a little leeway when it comes to shot selection. Sidney Jones Jersey . -- Two-time AL Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana agreed Tuesday to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles as he tries to come back from the second major operation on his left shoulder. http://www.eaglesapparelsshop.com/sidne … rsey-c-67/ . His apology came before a pregame ceremony in which the team honoured its 2004 team that won Bostons first World Series championship since 1918. "I realize that I behaved bad in Boston," Ramirez said.Henrik Stensons final round at Royal Troon was as close to perfection as weve ever seen, according to former Open champion Padraig Harrington. Stenson shot a stunning score of -20 under par - the joint-lowest in major history - to claim the Claret Jug on Sunday, the first major title of his career. His thrilling battle with nearest challenger Phil Mickelson also revived memories of the Duel in the Sun between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus at Turnberry in 1977.  Harrington, who was victorious at the Open in 2007 and 2008, heaped huge praise on Stenson and believes the Swede produced one of the finest rounds ever seen in the sport.  Stenson produced a sensational final round to claim victory at Royal Troon Its definitely the most impressive round Ive ever seen, in terms of physical golf, he could have shot a 59, he told Sky Sports News HQ. He had a couple of three putts and missed a couple of putts. But it was as close to perfection as weve ever seen.  Stenson says winning his first major is the highlight of his career Weve obviously seen different rounds with different guys where theres been a bit more drama. There was drama because Phil was there, but it was as consistent a round as youll see out there. Thats the best round of golf weve seen in the final round of major. Stenson celebrates his Open Championship victory Stensons stunning final round of 63 was the joint-lowest in major history, with his final score of 264 the lowest winning total for any 72-hole major championship. Derek Barnett Womens Jersey. Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters champion, also joined Harrington in hailing the performance Stenson, as well as thath of Mickelson. Henrik Stenson boards a plane for Switzerland before he travels home to Sweden on Tuesday. It was unbelievable golf. I would be intrigued to see where the boys were hitting it because the scoring was phenomenal on that golf course, he said. [Stenson] is 40-years-old and he has been in the game for many, many years. Hes going to be massively popular, everyone wants to see the good guys come through and do well and Henrik is certainly one of them. Stenson inspired by late friend Henrik Stenson feels the spirit of his late friend Michael Gerbich helped him claim victory… Martin Kaymer added: Mickelson and Stenson [in the final] round was probably one of the best battles that I can remember. To shoot six under par is what Mickelson did, he had a chance to win. But Henrik had a very good way of avoiding that. To shoot eight under in the final round of a major, trying to win your first major, I have a lot of respect for that. Also See: WATCH: Stenson makes us smile!
