    BERLIN -- Heiko Westermann scored late for Hamburger SV to beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 and provisionally escape the Bundesligas relegation zone on Friday. Jose Berrios Jersey . Westermann met Dennis Diekmeiers cross with a right-footed volley to score from a central position in the 82nd minute, and Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler made a crucial save from Emre Can to protect the win in injury time. "Its a relief," Westermann said. "So many emotions in the game. Of course its a great feeling when you score the winning goal." Hakan Calhanoglu gave the home side a fourth-minute lead with a powerful strike but a mistake from Adler allowed Leverkusen to equalize in the 58th, when he let Julian Brandts harmless-looking effort from distance slip past. Adler otherwise produced an assured performance with a number of important saves. The 17-year-old Brandt became Leverkusens youngest ever goal-scorer in the Bundesliga. Hamburgs late surge saw it climb above Nuremberg and Stuttgart in the table, pending their home games Saturday with Borussia Moenchengladbach and Freiburg, respectively. "Its a great feeling for the lads," Hamburg coach Mirko Slomka said. "This win isnt just good for the team; its good for the city, for the fans. I think everyone deserves it." The result increases the pressure on Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia with fourth place no longer secure. Both Moenchengladbach and Wolfsburg can overtake his side with wins on Saturday. "Were not paying attention to this discussion (about Hyypia)," Leverkusen captain Simon Rolfes said. "Luck isnt on our side." Leverkusen has just one win from its last 12 competitive games. Ryan Vogelsong Jersey .J. -- Having Ondrej Pavelec earn his 100th NHL win and seeing Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane break goal droughts were nice highlights for the Winnipeg Jets. Kurt Suzuki Jersey . -- Omar Infante walked past the visiting clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium, where he dressed so many times as a member of the Detroit Tigers, and slipped on a crisp, new Kansas City Royals jersey.BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. - New England Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth stopped Juan Luis Anangonos penalty kick in the first minute of stoppage time Saturday to preserve a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire, who matched a Major League Soccer record with their sixth straight tie. The Fire have tied each match since losing their opener. The six straight draws equaled an MLS mark last set by the Colorado Rapids in 2011. Shuttleworth made five of his six saves in the second half and Chicago forward Mike Magee hit the post on a breakaway with 25 seconds left in regulation. New England (2-3-2) tied it on a penalty kick in the 31st minute when Chicago defender Patrick Nyarko pulled down Revolution defender Kevin Alston in the penalty area. Lee Nguyens right-footed shot just eluded Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnsons dive to the left. Bartolo Colon Jersey. Quincy Amarikwas fourth goal of the season opened the scoring for Chicago in the 16th minute. He beat Shuttleworth from 15 yards after taking a long pass from Harry Shipp and fending off defenders Darrius Barnes and Andrew Ferrell. Amarikwa was ejected in the 73rd minute after his second hard tackle of the match. New Englands Alston also was ejected. Aside from matching the league mark for consecutive ties, Chicago extended its winless streak to eight matches. The Fires last victory was the next-to-last match of last season, a 1-0 victory over Toronto. They lost last years season-closer to New York, missing the playoffs as a result. 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 ' ' '
