BARCELONA, Spain -- French forward Kevin Gameiro scored twice to help Sevilla win a bad-tempered derby at 10-man Real Betis 2-0 and stay in the hunt for Spains final Champions League berth on Sunday. Brian McCann Jersey . Sevillas victory at Benito Villamarin Stadium moved it to within three points of fourth-placed Athletic Bilbao before the Basque side hosts Malaga on Monday. The loss left Betis languishing in last place, some 10 points from safety with five rounds to go. "We maintained our attitude from recent matches that at least we can leave the pitch with our heads held high," Betis goalkeeper Adan Garrido said. "We will keep trying until the very end." Betis had a feisty start but Sevilla struck first when Gameiro converted a penalty on the half-hour mark after Juan Carlos Perez was dismissed with a direct red card for fouling Carlos Bacca from behind. Sevilla lost left back Alberto Moreno to an ankle injury after he collided with Jose Antonio Reyes at the end of a first half that saw several hard tackles. Gameiro finally capitalized on Sevillas manpower advantage by scoring again in the 82nd for his 13th league goal this season. Unai Emerys Sevilla continues to enjoy a strong second half of the season as it aims for a return to Europes top-tier competition. It advanced to the semifinals of the Europa League against Valencia after eliminating FC Porto earlier this week. In other matches, Valencia goalkeeper Vicente Guaita saved a penalty to ensure a 2-1 win at home over Elche. Valencias Pablo Piatti opened in the 22nd before Ferran "Coro" Corominas levelled six minutes later. Midfielder Dani Parejos long strike restored Valencias lead in the 61st, and Guaita blocked Damian Suarezs spot kick in the 71st after Piatti had fouled Cristian Herrera. Valencia stayed in eighth place and seven points from seventh and the last Europa League spot, while Elche remained four points above the drop. Valencia finished with 10 men after Antonio Barragan picked up a second booking in stoppage time. Later Sunday, Atletico Madrid is at Getafe and hopes to move clear at the top of the Spanish league. It currently shares the lead with Real Madrid, one point ahead of Barcelona. Also, Espanyol welcomes Rayo Vallecano. Jose Cruz Astros Jersey . McCutchen hit his first home run in over a month, doubled twice and scored two runs to help the Pirates beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Sunday and take three of four from the defending NL West champions. Lance McCullers Jersey . -- The guys in green raced off the court and into the locker room where they danced and sang, compared whose shot was most likely to end up featured on "One Shining Moment," and checked Twitter to see who was giving them a shoutout.GREEN BAY, Wis. -- While Aaron Rodgers is hurt, another star player looks as if hell soon be returning to the Packers. Linebacker Clay Matthews is working his way toward a potential return to Lambeau Field for Sundays game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The heavy black wrap that virtually encased his right hand in practice offers a big clue as to why hes missed the past four games. "I think so. You know obviously its going to be coachs decision, but you know, Id like to be out there," Matthews said Thursday. "So Im just trying to get ready to help out in any way which I can." Getting Matthews back would help offset the loss of Rodgers, who hurt his left collarbone in Monday nights loss to the Bears. "Its time for other positions to elevate their game and really carry this team ... until he comes back," Matthews said. The four-time Pro Bowler has 45 1/2 sacks in 62 games, including three in his four appearances this season. His return would be a huge boost for an outside linebacker group ravaged by injuries. Matthews was limited in practice Thursday, as were three other outside linebackers: Mike Neal (knee), Andy Mulumba (ankle) and Nick Perry (foot). The latter has missed the past three games. The only healthy outside linebacker is rookie Nate Palmer. First, Matthews has to get used to that "club" on his right hand he wears in practice. From afar, it looks as if he was wearing a large black oven mitt stuffed with foam thats sealed around his wrist. Matthews is not a big fan of it. "It does not feel good." "Ive just got to get used to playing, you know a little more with one hand and obviously being comfortable with throwing it in there," he said. "So Im taking babyy steps in coming back to practice. Alex Bregman Astros Jersey. quot; Whether trying to spin past an offensive tackle or levelling an undersized running back trying to throw a block, the hands are important in helping to get leverage. "Obviously you need to have great hands, and you know when you take one away it definitely hinders your game a little bit," he said. "Well take it day-by-day, but its getting better." Coach Mike McCarthy has been watching Matthews comfort level. Practice could help determine whether a different kind of custom-fitting wrap is better for Matthews, given the particular pass-rushing techniques he might use. But a one-armed Matthews might be just as good as any other linebacker. After compiling 11 sacks in the first three games without Matthews, the Packers managed just one in Mondays 27-20 loss to Chicago. Palmer said just the threat of having Matthews out there could help free up other pass-rushers. "I hope hes very effective," McCarthy said. "Hes a dynamic football (player) and it will be great to get him back on the field." Playing the Eagles would also be a family affair for Matthews. His younger brother, linebacker Casey Matthews, was a fourth-round draft pick in 2011 out of Oregon. Notes: McCarthy said the Packers are getting the defence ready for the Eagles up-tempo attack with a no-huddle system. "I thought our guys did a good job for them today. But its a challenge," McCarthy said. ... Rodgers was listed on the practice report as having not participated. The team doesnt have to declare whether players will be out until Friday. ... G T.J. Lang (concussion) did not practice for a second straight day, while DT Ryan Pickett (knee) was limited Thursday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
