BALTIMORE -- Mark Trumbo breathed some life into the Baltimore Orioles postseason hopes.Trumbo led off the 12th inning with his major league-leading 44th home run, and the Orioles rallied from a late two-run deficit to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Friday night.After getting swept in a four-game series by Boston, the Orioles remained a half-game behind Detroit for the ALs second wild card.This is the type of game you definitely want to win because it can be a real gut punch if it goes the other way, Trumbo said.Baltimore trailed 2-0 before Pedro Alvarez homered in the eighth off Enrique Burgos and Matt Wieters homered against Daniel Hudson leading off the ninth.Oliver Drake (1-0) pitched a scoreless 12th for his first big league win. Matt Koch (1-1) relieved to start the bottom half and Trumbo sent his first pitch over the left-field fence, setting off a celebration. It was Baltimores sixth walk-off home run this season.They did a great job of battling back and tying the game and we did a great job of stopping them from winning the game a couple of times, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. We had some great plays. We left a ball up there in the middle of the plate for Trumbo and we know what he can do with it. Weve seen it before.Baltimore, which stranded 14 runners, nearly won the game in the ninth. J.J. Hardy tried to score from second on Adam Jones single but was called out after the throw from left fielder Brandon Drury to catcher Welington Castillo, a play upheld by video review.I thought he was safe, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. The only thing they could have possibly said that they werent sure J.J. got there. The guy tagged him with the glove and had the ball in his throwing hand. Youve got to help me with that one. Im sure you all saw the same thing we did. Another head-shaker. Weve had quite a few of them this year.Arizona built a lead against Yovani Gallardo on RBI doubles by Jake Lamb in the first and Jean Segura in the second. Gallardo has allowed 22 runs in the first inning this season.You never want to have a start in that way, giving up a run in the first, giving up a run in each of the first two innings, Gallardo said. Its going to happen.Arizonas Shelby Miller allowed just three hits in six innings and remained winless since June 20.Against a lineup like that, in a tough ballpark to pitch in, its always tough to throw zeroes, Miller said. And to get a good outing like that against that team . really the biggest thing was we made a lot of good plays on defense.DOMINANT BULLPENSix Orioles relievers -- Darren ODay, Brad Brach, Mychal Givens, Zach Britton, Tommy Hunter and Oliver Drake -- each threw one scoreless inning.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke did not travel with the team because of shoulder stiffness. He is expected to have an MRI.Orioles: RHP Kevin Gausman will likely start Tuesday or Wednesday in Toronto after being pushed back because of soreness in an oblique.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Robbie Ray (8-13, 4.66 ERA), scheduled to start Saturday, entered the weekend fifth in the NL with 210 strikeouts. He is making his first career start against Baltimore.Orioles: LHP Wade Miley (8-13, 5.65 ERA) returns after leaving in the fifth inning Sept. 18 against Boston with a strained back muscle. Miley, selected by Arizona in the first round of the 2008 amateur draft, is facing his former team for the first time. Nike Shox For Sale .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?

Subban certainly knows how to make an entrance, especially with a team more than happy to help manage his arrival in Music City.The Nashville Predators took their new All-Star defenseman on a whirlwind trip around town that featured Subban jumping onstage at a renowned honky-tonk to belt out Johnny Cashs Folsom Prison Blues. Then the Predators introduced Subban to reporters and a few fans Monday in their first chance to show off the man they picked up last month in a big trade with Montreal.Subban said the past few weeks since last months trade have been filled with mixed emotions.Theres no question that Im head-over-heels excited about this opportunity to play here in Nashville, Subban said. Im excited about our team. Im excited about our city and Im most importantly excited about the opportunity to win a Stanley Cup. Thats what this is all about. Coming here is not a popularity contest. Coming here is about helping this team to win and win a championship. Thats what Im here to do.The Predators and Canadiens stunned the NHL on June 29 with Montreal swapping Subban for Nashvilles captain and fellow All-Star defenseman, Shea Weber. Nashville has been lauded for getting the better end of the deal with Subban having just turned 27 in May while Weber turns 31 in August. Montreal has been criticized for trading away the 2013 Norris Trophy winner and a fan favorite who pledged $10 million to a childrens hospital last year.Subban said he had an amazing relationship with the Montreal fans but promised they will learn to love Weber as both a great hockey player and person.Obviously leaving Montreal is emotional for me, Subban said. I have a lot of relationships there, a lot of great ties, and Ill be connected too that city forever.dddddddddddd Now its time ... Christmas Day is over, its Boxing Day and its time to move on.Subban was vacationing in Europe when the trade occurred. He used this quick trip to Nashville to meet general manager David Poile and some of the teams employees. He has yet to sit down with coach Peter Laviolette and his assistants to find out what they want from him. Subban ate lunch Monday with new teammates Ryan Ellis and Mike Fisher and now has all his new teammates phone numbers.Nashvilles new defenseman lacks Webers size at 6 feet and 210 pounds. But Subban has more points (202) than the 6-4, 236-pound Weber (180) over the past four seasons. The Predators wanted to add Subbans offensive skills to Laviolettes scheme in which defensemen are encouraged to join the attack offensively to better compete in the Central Division, where they finished fourth.The Predators lost to San Jose in the second round of the playoffs in seven games.Hopefully, were either creating more offense and scoring more goals but for sure not spending as much time in our end, Poile said.Subban already has had fans asking for his autograph and coming up to talk to him. He was in Nashville for All-Star weekend last January, which gave him a chance to get to learn about his new home a bit.I remember leaving, saying, Wow! I didnt know people were so passionate about hockey here, Subban said. It is a hockey city. Im really excited to be playing here right now. Its different. Its definitely different from Montreal but different in a good way. I look to embrace everything about this city and definitely embrace winning. ' ' '
