    SEATTLE - Before Cesar Ramos took the mound, Joe Maddon raved about how the left-hander had made the transition from reliever to starter and pitched well with Tampa Bays pitching staff thinned by injuries. Josh McRoberts Jersey . Then Ramos got battered for three innings by Seattles bats and got no help from a shaky defensive night by the Rays. Ramos was knocked around early by the Mariners in their 12-5 win over the Rays that included video reviews on consecutive batters in the first inning and Seattle ace Felix Hernandez getting ejected in the seventh inning. "We got ambushed. We just sashayed into the canyon and they were firing from both sides," Maddon said. Ramos had allowed only nine total runs and 18 hits all season. By the end of the third inning, hed given up 11 hits and nine runs — although only five of those were earned because of four errors in the first two innings by Tampa Bays defence. The Rays committed three errors in the second inning, tying a franchise record. It was a difficult opening to a West Coast road trip for Maddons crew. "They came out aggressive and I took too long to adjust," Ramos said. "I started pitching backward later and started having more success." Even though Ramos got battered, he settled down and helped save Tampa Bays bullpen by getting through 6 2-3 innings. He didnt allow a hit after the third, retiring the final 12 batters he faced. He set career bests for innings pitched and pitches (114) although few will look beyond the rough beginning. "I appreciate him even more for what he did after the bad start," Maddon said. "A lot of guys would not do what he did, the way he saved the rest of the staff. A lot of guys would have caved right there and he did not cave." Hernandez (4-1) won for the first time in more than a month. He took a shutout bid into the seventh inning, then gave up a three-run double to Ryan Hanigan with two outs and was pulled. At that point, Hernandez was fuming about the strike zone of plate umpire Mark Ripperger. On his way off the mound, Hernandez had a few words for Ripperger. Hernandez said he couldnt repeat anything he uttered. "Im sure he got his moneys worth. I didnt understand everything he said," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I kind of knew it was going to happen because he was not happy." Hernandez rebounded from a rough last four starts. It was his first start for the Rays since Aug. 15, 2012, when he tossed a perfect game at Safeco Field. Asked his thoughts on giving Hernandez a big early lead, Maddon said, "Thats called being sub-optimal." James Jones doubled, singled and scored in each of the first three innings as the Mariners took a 9-0 lead. Robinson Cano drove in Jones twice. They werent alone at providing production at the top of Seattles order. Stefan Romero homered, doubled and singled and Corey Hart had two hits and two RBIs. Justin Smoak hit a two-run homer and Mike Zunino added a solo shot for Seattle. The rare back-to-back replays came in the first inning as Cano and then Hart both barely missed home runs on fly balls that hit the yellow line atop the fence and bounced back. Umpires ruled both balls in play, and their calls were confirmed. Cano wound up with a double on his drive to left field, Hart was thrown out trying for a double on his shot to right. "That was pretty weird. You had nothing to lose by asking them to review them," McClendon said. NOTES: Rays LHP David Price will make his first career start at Safeco Field on Tuesday. Its just his second start against Seattle in his career. ... Cano has reached safely in 21 straight games. Kostas Antetokounmpo Jersey . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey .TV Series: Duck Dynasty.MONTREAL - Alex Galchenyuk is showing that he wants to establish himself as a top offensive player for the Montreal Canadiens. The gifted 20-year-old scored the tying goal with 3:09 left in regulation time and David Desharnais got the game-winner in overtime as the Canadiens downed the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 on Tuesday night.The goal was Galchenyuks third of the season and gave him seven points in as many games for Montreal (6-1-1), which has won three home games in a row.The American-born forward had a running physical battle with Detroit defenceman Kyle Quincey for two periods before potting his goal. In his first two NHL seasons, he might have backed away from such encounters, but not any more.I had a great summer of training, said Galchenyuk, who was picked third overall in the 2012 draft for his speed and playmaking skills. I got stronger and I feel more confident physically.You want to start the year feeling comfortable with yourself because like that you can do more things on the ice. Physicality is not an issue for me right now.Henrik Zetterberg, with an assist from Pavel Datsyuk, scored in the second frame for Detroit (3-1-2).Galchenyuk is thriving on Montreals second line with veteran centre Tomas Plekanec and newcomer P.A. Parenteau.He tied the game with each team down a man when he came out from behind the net and stuffed the rubber inside the post past Jimmy Howard, who appeared to lose sight of the puck.Only 56 seconds into overtime, Desharnais poked the puck in from the side of the net after blasts from Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban didnt get through.Both Howard and Montreals Carey Price shone in a tight checking game in which Montreal outshot the Red Wings 36-28. Detroit looked to be the better team for two periods, smothering the Canadiens in the neutral zone before going on attack.But Montreal had a 13-5 shot advantage in the third and it seemed only a matter of time before the equalizer would come.Their back end really got active, Detroit coach Mike Babcock said of the Canadiens. And Carey price plays the puck really well and that helped them a lot.Were a quiick team, but in the last 10 minutes, we were hanging on instead of pushing. Harrison Barnes Jersey. Babcock was also concerned with his power play, which went 0 for 3 and is 2 for 23 on the season.Weve got to get our power play fixed, he said. It was the fifth time the Canadiens have overcome an early deficit to win this season.Were just relentless, said Price. That pretty much sums it up.We dont feel were out of any hockey game, so we just keep working and coming at you. We feel if we do that it will pay off.Datsyuk returned from a shoulder injury to play his first game of the season. He got 18:05 of ice time and one shot on goal.But he was involved in the Zetterberg goal. The three-time Selke Trophy winner picked himself up after being knocked down at centre ice and got the puck to the Swede on the right side.Zetterberg broke in, cut to the left and saw his low shot go off goalie Price, the crossbar and defenceman Subban and go into the net at 13:41 of the second frame.And the 36-year-old Datsyuk showed he still has some magic when the Red Wings had one called back 11:51 into the third.The Russian was on a two on one break when he spun in the slot and put the puck in the top corner with a backhander, but the spectacular goal was waived off because Justin Abdelkader had bumped Price in his crease.Babcock said Price initiated the contact with Abdelkader and the goal should have counted, but Price saw it differently.Datsyuk made a great move coming into the middle and Abdelkader was just going to the front of the net, said Price. He stopped at the top of the crease and bumped into me.I couldnt see anything. He turned me sideways a bit and I didnt even see Datsyuk shoot the puck. Its the referees discretion, and Im definitely not going to argue with him.Notes — The Canadiens scratched rookie Jiri Sekac and put Dale Weise back in after a two-game rest.
