The Saskatchewan Roughriders started slow again Saturday night, but came on strong and grabbed a 32-25 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Saturday night in front of 23,108 fans at Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton.

The Cats had the ball first and took just two plays to go 50 yards, getting a 41 yard catch and run from Dave Stalla, then a 9 yard Kevin Glenn to Matt Carter pass play for the major score. Sandro Deangelis kicked the extra point and with 1:18 gone, Hamilton had a 7-0 lead.

The Ti-Cats scored on their next possession, keyed by a 41 yard DeAndra Cobb run. Quinton Porter scored from a yard out and, with the convert from Deangelis, led 14-0 with 6:33 left in the first.

Deangelis then booted the ball into the endzone on a missed field goal for the single on their next possession, giving Hamilton a 15-0 lead with 2:17 still to play in the first quarter.

Saskatchewan finally got on the board early in the second, when Wes Cates finished off a 9 play, 75 yard drive by barreling in from 1 yard away. The convert from Congi was good, and with 12:19 to go 'til halftime, the Riders had cut their deficit to 8, at 15-7.

Saskatchewan climbed within a point seven minutes later, when Durant found Rob Bagg for a 70 yard touchdown strike. Congi converted and 5:07 remaining in the first half, the Riders were within a point, at 15-14.

With 2:18 left in the half, Deangelis connected on a 32 yard field goal giving Hamilton an 18-14 lead.

Then, in the closing moments of the first half, Durant hooked up with Weston Dressler for a 43 yard major score. The play withstood a Tider-Cats challenge, then Congi would add the convert with 1 second to go, putting Saskatchewan on top at the half, 21-18.

Hamilton regained the lead in the third. Glenn tossed a 10 yard touchdown pass to Marquay McDaniel and, with the convert from Deangelis, the Ti-Cats were back on top 25-21 with 7:20 still on the third quarter time clock.

The Roughriders then took over. Eddie Johnson kicked a 51 yard punt single with 4:35 left to cut the deficit to 25-22, and Congi would make good on a 35 yard field goal with 24 seconds to go in the third, tying the game 25-25.

The decisive score came with just under 8 minutes left in regulation time. Bagg's second touchdown catch of the night, a 19 yard scoring toss from Durant, accompanied by the Congi convert with 7:19 to play, put Saskatchewan up by 7. James Patrick then intercepted a pass near the goal line on the games' final play, giving the Riders their 32-25 win.

For Saskatchewan, Darian Durant was 23-of-31 passing for 418 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception, Rob Bagg had 5 receptions for 119 yards and 2 touchdowns, Weston Dressler caught 7 balls for 139 yards and 1 touchdown, Wes Cates had 13 carries for 71 yards and 1 touchdown, Luca Congi kicked 1 field goal and 4 converts and Eddie Johnson added a punt single for the Riders. Kevin Glenn led Hamilton with 26-of-35 passing for 336 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception, Marquay McDaniel and Matt Carter had 1 receiving touchdown each, Quinton Porter added a rushing touchdown and Sandro Deangelis booted 1 field goal, 3 converts and 1 single.

ST. PETERSBURG --  After jumping out to a quick lead they never relinquished, the Rays left little suspense in a 9-1 win over the Mariners on Saturday night. But there should be more than enough to go around Sunday.

Read the rest here.

Notes: James Shields (13-13, 4.96) starts today's series finale against the Mariners' Luke Franch (4-6, 4.23)....Shields needs 7 2/3 innings to reach 200 for the fourth consecutive year, and he is the only pitcher in Rays history with multiple 200-inning seasons. The right-hander would become one of seven pitchers with 200-plus innings in each of the past four years, joining Justin Verlander, CC Sabathia, Dan Haren, Roy Halladay, Matt Cain and Bronson Arroyo. "There's satisfaction just for the lone fact that I've stayed healthy all year, knock on wood," Shields said. "I've got two more starts left, but that's my main goal. That's been my No. 1 goal all year -- to stay healthy. I've had a bad year as far as my ERA goes. I have 13 wins right now, and if I can get these last two, that'll be 15. That'll be great. It'll beat my career high. But I'm not really focused in on that. The 200 innings, I'd like to do that every year."....The Rays have won seven of their first eight games in 2010 against the Mariners and have won the past four in a row.

Denver -- This wasn't a ballgame. This was a fight that left the Giants bloodied but unbowed, aware that more confrontations remain.

The Giants must keep scrapping because they fell to second place in the National League West on Saturday night with a 10-9, 10-inning loss to the Colorado Rockies. San Francisco dropped a half-game behind the San Diego Padres in the division race and settled into a tie with Atlanta atop the NL Wild Card standings.

Notes: Matt Cain (12-12, 3.00) starts this afternoon for the Giants against Colorado's Jorge De la Rosa  (8-5, 4.22)....Center fielder Andres Torres returned to the Giants' lineup on Saturday, 13 days after undergoing an appendectomy. He was again a sparkplug atop the Giants' lineup, as he went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. "It's good to have him back. It's a credit to the shape he's in," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Torres was feeling "uncomfortable" in the area of his surgery, and was removed as a precaution after five innings. Bochy said he will be evaluated again on Sunday....The Giants went 6-4 without Torres in their lineup, but they also were held to two or fewer runs six times over that span....Sunday marks the final meeting between the Rockies and Giants this season. The Rockies lead the season series, 9-8, entering the series finale....The Giants went 6-4 without Torres in their lineup, but they also were held to two or fewer runs six times over that span.

How to watch the videos on Oh Baby Vision

In the upper left hand corner, there's three horizontal lines. Click that once or twice and it'll bring up thumbnails of all the movies. Click on the one you want to watch and it'll start. It may play the next one automatically, or you may have to click the little box to bring the thumbnails back up.



Now with the addition of more videos, just use the scroll bar on the right to choose the one you want to watch.



I hope you like 'em
