David Ortiz then greeted Baltimore reliever

 
07-Jun-2012

ORCHARD PARK, N. Jonathan Quick Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Bills push to sell out their remaining home games has fallen tens of thousands of tickets short, leaving the distinct possibility of all three contests being blacked out on local television. "It was a daunting challenge going into it," Bills CEO Russ Brandon said on Wednesday. "Were disappointed that were having this conversation, and disappointed that were staring at three potential blackouts." Brandon said there are more than 12,000 tickets available for the teams game against Tennessee on Sunday, making it very likely it will not be sold out. The prospect for sellouts doesnt look any brighter for the Bills final two home games. There are more than 14,000 tickets still available for their game against Miami on Dec. 18. And theres about 24,000 left for the home finale against Denver on Christmas Eve. "The next two games are also going to be a significant challenge," Brandon said. "We have a lot of inventory to move in a short amount of time." The Bills attempted to spur sales by offering a 12.5 per cent discount to fans buying tickets for all three games. The promotion made a small dent, considering there were 57,000 seats available four weeks ago. Under NFL rules, teams have up until 72 hours before game time to sell out their stadium to have the blackout lifted. Theres a provision to extend the deadline by a day if there are a limited number of seats still available. Thats not likely to happen in Buffalo, where the Bills have traditionally had difficulty sellout out Ralph Wilson Stadium for games beyond Thanksgiving once the weather turns cold. Of the 14 nonsellouts the Bills had from 2000-2010, 10 of those games came after Thanksgiving. And its made no difference whether the Bills have been a winner or loser. During the franchises heydays in the 1990s, Brandon said the team failed to sell out about 55 per cent of its games in December. The Bills had previously lobbied the NFL to schedule more home games earlier in the season to help boost ticket sales. It doesnt help that interest has begun to wane in a team thats spiralled out of playoff contention. Buffalo (5-6) has lost four straight and been undone by an alarming rash of injuries. The Bills had sold out their previous five home games this season. The poor economy hasnt helped, and all NFL teams had a slow start in selling tickets after the lockout wiped out most of the off-season. The Bills season-ticket base dropped to 37,555 -- down from 44,000 last year. Zach Parise Jersey .

Gregory Campbell, Patrice Bergeron and Michael Ryder also scored for Boston, which has lost just twice in regulation in its last 13 games (8-2-3).Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Matt Wieters two-run single in the top of the 10th inning proved to be the difference, as the Baltimore Orioles edged Boston, 7-6, to avoid a three-game sweep at Fenway Park. Scott Atchison (0-1) took the hill for Boston in the 10th and failed to retire any of the three batters he faced, allowing a single and double before walking Ty Wigginton to load the bases. Scott Schoeneweis entered the game and gave up an RBI single to Rhyne Hughes and the hit to Wieters, who gave the Orioles a 7-4 lead. The Red Sox got two runs back in the bottom half off Jim Johnson (1-1), but Cla Meredith recorded the final two outs with the tying run and winning run on base to pick up his first career save in his 272nd relief appearance. Miguel Tejada hit a two-run homer for Baltimore, which snapped a 10-game losing streak to its AL East rival and won for just the third time in 19 games this season. "They played a real good game and I give those guys all the credit," said Orioles manager Dave Trembley. "We had a total team contribution today and it showed." David Hernandez started for the Orioles and gave up three runs on four hits in five-plus innings. Kevin Youkilis went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored for the Red Sox, while J.D. Drew drove in two runs. Boston starter Tim Wakefield allowed two runs on seven hits and sstruck out five over 6 2/3 innings. Ryan Fitzpatrick Youth Jersey. . "Considering I didnt have good starts the last two times I was out there I thought today went pretty good," said Wakefield. "I got us into the seventh inning and my job as a starter is to get deep into the game and give us a chance to win and I thought I did it today." Craig Tatums RBI single in the second staked Baltimore to a 1-0 lead. The score remained the same until Boston put up a four-spot in the sixth. The first four batters reached base to start the inning. Dustin Pedroia walked and Victor Martinez singled before Youkilis tied the game at one with a base hit to left field. David Ortiz then greeted Baltimore reliever Mark Hendrickson with a run- scoring single to right. Drew drove in Bostons third run with a sacrifice fly. Adrian Beltre lined a single to center, and Jason Berken succeeded Hendrickson with two outs. Pinch-hitter Mike Lowell doubled home Ortiz to make it 4-1.
