and two walks while striking out nine. I felt fres (23rd Oct 15 at 3:05am UTC)
LISBON, Portugal -- Tens of thousands of people turned out Monday to pay tribute to Portuguese football star Eusebio after his coffin was put on public display and taken in a funeral cortege through the streets of Lisbon. People filed out of offices and cafes on a rainy afternoon and applauded as the hearse with a police motorcycle escort passed by. Traffic was halted on the capitals main roads, and the cortege stopped for a ceremony at city hall. Earlier in the day, dozens of dignitaries and hundreds of fans, some weeping, filed past the coffin at the Lisbon stadium of Benfica, Eusebios longtime club. Some 10,000 fans at the Stadium of Light cheered and sang when the coffin was placed in the centre of the pitch. The government decreed three days of national mourning after Eusebios death Sunday from heart failure. He was 71. Eusebio was an international star and national hero whose heyday was in the 1960s with Benfica and the Portuguese national team. He became one of the worlds top goalscorers and was widely regarded as one of the best players of all time. He was affectionately known as the Black Panther for his athletic physique and agility. The funeral was attended by Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho and many football players, including former world player of the year and retired Portugal captain Luis Figo, as well as Eusebios surviving family. Eusebio was to be buried in a cemetery near Benficas stadium. Authorities said they would consider moving him later to Lisbons National Pantheon, which contains the tombs of illustrious figures from Portuguese history.

(Sports Network) - After halting a four-game slide with a victory on Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins eye a series victory over the Seattle Mariners this afternoon in the finale of a three-game series at Target Field. After being bested in extra innings on Monday for their 13th loss in 16 games, the Twins rode the arm of Nick Blackburn and the bat of Denard Span to a 4-2 victory last night. Blackburn hurled his fifth career complete game to even his season record at 4-4, while Span had three hits and drove in a run with an RBI double during a two-run seventh inning that put Minnesota ahead for good. Alexi Casilla had two hits and scored twice while Jason Kubel added two hits and an RBI for the Twins, who beat the Mariners for the seventh time in the past 10 meetings. It felt good out there tonight, said Kubel. I made some plays, the other guys made some plays and we got the win. We didnt score a bunch of runs, but we scored enough to win and thats all that counts. Miguel Olivo hit a game-tying two-run homer in the fourth inning for Seattle, but starter Doug Fister balked in the go-ahead run in the seventh before giving up Spans run-scoring hit. Seattle had a season-best six-game winning streak come to an end. Their guy was throwing really strong tonight, said Seattle shortstop Brendan Ryan, who went 3-for-3 in the game. I mean, all my hits were cheap and for the most part he was pounding the zone and getting us out.dddddddddddd The Mariners like what they are getting from Erik Bedard as of late and hope that the left-hander can extend his four-start unbeaten streak today. Bedard, who has battled multiple shoulder injuries over the past few seasons, is 2-0 with a 1.33 earned run average over his surge after beginning the season 0-4 with a 7.71 ERA. He posted his longest outing of the season last time out, hurling eight shutout innings in a win over San Diego on Friday. He scattered three hits and two walks while striking out nine. I felt fresh. I just tried not to get too pumped up, said Bedard, who lowered his ERA to a season-low 3.94. The 32-year-old has had limited success in his career when facing the Twins, going 1-5 with a 4.68 ERA in 10 starts. Taking the hill for the Twins will be Brian Duensing, who is winless in his last five appearances. The left-hander is 0-4 with a 7.65 ERA in that span, which includes four starts and one relief outing. Duensing picked up a loss in Arizona on Friday, getting charged with five runs on seven hits over six-plus innings of work. The 28-year-old fell to 2-4 with a 4.98 ERA in nine games this season, all but one of those starts. Duensing will be making his first career start against the Mariners after facing them once before in relief.
