COLUMBUS, Ohio - Columbus Crew midfielder Bernardo Anor said his first goal off a set piece was one that had been run over and over again in practice. Nike Air Max 720 NZ . His second wasnt the kind that can be duplicated in training. Anors brilliant 35-yard strike at the end of the first half proved to be the difference in Columbus 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union Saturday in the Crews home opener. "Thats what the games all about," he said of the score that gave him his first multi-goal game of his career. "Its something you dont practice very often. I was fortunate to score the goal." Anor previously had six goals in 45 games, including four in 20 games last season. Columbus won the first two games of the season for the first time in its 19-year history while the Union fell to 1-1-1. Leonardo Fernandes scored in the 62nd minute for Philadelphia to cut the deficit, but the first-half struggles were too much to overcome and Columbus goalkeeper Steve Clark made late saves on Fernandes and Jack McInerney. "The team last year might have crumbled a bit," Union goalkeeper Zac McMath said. "We came back and deserved a tie, if not a win." Anor gave the Crew a 2-0 lead in the second minute of first-half stoppage time. The goal was set up when Wil Trapp created a turnover at midfield and poked the ball ahead to Anor for the quick strike. "Our philosophy is to try and win the ball back as soon as possible," Trapp said. "I stepped into the lane and Bernardo had a beautiful strike. I was lucky to get an assist. He was the one that did all the work." Columbus used its first corner kick to take the lead. Federico Higuain whipped the ball from the right to Anor, who was unmarked at the edge of the goal box. Anor had waited for several of his teammates to make runs through the box to draw attention. Anor was the trailer and Higuain laced a perfect ball that Anor headed down into the goal. "We lost our man," Union coach John Hackworth said. "We should have had an easy clearance on the goal, too. Neither one of those should have happened." Cheap Air Max 720 NZ . No, really, his head.

It certainly gave him an edge against his former teammates. Peavy pitched seven strong innings, Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 7-2 on Saturday night for their sixth win in seven games. Acquired in a three-team, seven-player deal July 30 that sent infielder Jose Iglesias to Detroit, Peavy spent four seasons with the White Sox. The 32-year old right-hander went 36-29 after being picked up in a trade from San Diego on July 31, 2009. "I certainly knew that team in and out," he said. "I did know pretty much for the most part what they were going to do. I think that worked pretty much to my advantage." Peavy (11-5) allowed two runs and five singles in his sixth start for the Red Sox. He struck out four and walked one while throwing 109 pitches. Even White Sox manager Robin Ventura could see him working his hitters a certain way. "Hes good at seeing some weaknesses at people and he tried to exploit them," he said. "Today you could see him do it. You could see what he was trying to do. I dont know if its that easy at the plate, but, from afar, when youre sitting back, you could see him do it." Ellsbury also scored twice and drove in a run for the AL East-leaders. David Ortiz, who snapped an 0-for-23 stretch with a two-run single in Fridays win, went 2 for 4 with a walk and an RBI in Bostons 15-hit attack. It was the 11th straight game Bostons pitchers have held an opponent to three or fewer runs, matching the best since April of 1988. According to Elias Sports Bureau, its the most since 12 in a row in 1915. "Im certainly happy I wasnt the one to end it," Peavy said, smiling. Chicago, last in the AL Central, had won 10 of 12 before dropping the first two of a three-game series against Boston. Boston broke open a tie game with three runs in the fourth against John Danks (4-11), and then scored again in the fifth. Clearance Air Max 720. That was more than enough for Peavy. "I dont think Jake can be any more amped up than he is in any game," Danks said. "He looked like typical Jake. He had a pretty good game plan and stuck to it. Thats why hes had the success hes had over how many years hes played. Hes certainly one of the best thats played." Ellsburys tiebreaking ground-rule double gave the Red Sox a 3-2 lead. Dustin Pedroia then drove in run with a groundout before Ortiz lined an RBI single to left. Rookie Xander Bogaerts, regarded as one of the top prospects in baseball, added an RBI single in the fifth that made it 6-2. Danks gave up six runs, five earned, and 11 hits over five innings. He had won his previous two starts, allowing only two runs in 14 innings. "I knew I had to be good and simply wasnt," he said. "Jake did what he has to do with a lead." The Red Sox had grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first on Mike Napolis RBI single. Chicago tied it on Alejandro De Azas run-scoring groundout. Jonny Gomes doubled home a run in the third, but the White Sox tied it again on Avisail Garcias RBI single.
