Arrieta was tackled by goalkeeper Sean Johnson in the 70th minute and Higuain converted from the spot. Bernardo Anor made it 3-0 in the 76th as the Crew (11-14-5) won their second straight. "We hit the post. We hit the crossbar. We had opportunities," Fire midfielder Jeff Larentowicz said. "Overall its just not good enough." The Crew have won three of four under interim coach Brian Bliss and are eighth with 38 points in the Eastern Conference, but are only two points behind New England for the fifth and final playoff spot. "The change in attitude is that we know we can still make the playoffs," Oduro said. Chicago dropped from fifth into a tie for sixth with Philadelphia at 39 points. The Crew have four matches left, while Chicago, New England and Philadelphia have five. Oduro said getting back into the playoff hunt was more important than scoring against the club that traded him in February. "It felt good but its not our main focus," he said.

Its easier on everybody," Washington manager Davey Johnson said Saturday afternoon. "That said, well probably be here until 1 (a.m.)." Marlins manager Mike Redmond also said he expected that the teams would wait it out. "From what Ive heard, I think they want to play it tonight. Nobody really wants to play a doubleheader on our getaway day. II think well sit this one out, wait it out and see what happens," he said. Air Max 90 Hyperfuse.

On Wednesday, Strasburg couldnt shake forearm tightness while trying to get loose for that start, so he was again pushed back, to Saturday. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
