LEICESTER, England -- Leicesters 20-game unbeaten home league run ended as West Bromwich Albion beat the Premier League champions 2-1 on Sunday. Dave Casper Jersey .Matt Phillips exploited Danny Drinkwaters error as West Brom inflicted Leicesters fifth loss of the season but the first at the King Power Stadium in the league since September 2015.Leicester forward Islam Slimani had quickly canceled out James Morrisons second-half opener but Phillips goal ended Albions five-match winless streak.Leicesters focus on the Champions League -- where Claudio Ranieris team needs one point from its final two group games to reach the last 16 -- has impacted on the domestic form.Leicester tumbled to 14th place as West Brom moved above the hosts into 11th.Leicester only lost just three times in last seasons successful campaign for its first top-flight title, with Jamie Vardy again benched Sunday without a goal in his last 13 outings after a substitute appearance.Leicester started on the back foot as Ron-Robert Zieler, in for Kasper Schmeichel after the goalkeeper fractured a hand in Wednesdays 0-0 Champions League draw in Copenhagen, tipped Phillips low drive wide after just three minutes.The Baggies made an aggressive start, helped by Leicesters sloppy play, with Zieler rusty and the goalkeeper allowed Salomon Rondon to charge down his clearance.Much like in their forgettable stalemate in Denmark, the Foxes were stifled with Slimani and the recalled Shinji Okazaki starved of service.With Vardy benched, Leicester lacked the cunning to attack West Brom as Ahmed Musa and Riyad Mahrez remained on the periphery.Darren Fletcher and Claudio Yacob screened the visitors defense well and it was the first time Leicester had failed to register a shot on target in the first half since returning to the Premier League in 2014.In response Ranieri replaced Okazaki with Vardy at the break but the strikers introduction failed to inspire the hosts.West Brom took the lead seven minutes after the restart. Fine work from Rondon saw the ball eventually worked right.Phillips cross struck Christian Fuchs and fell invitingly for Morrison to stoop and glance a fine 10-yard header across Zieler and into the corner.The lead lasted just three minutes. Leicester equalized with its first effort of the game. Slimanis cross-field pass found Mahrez and the striker wandered into the area unchecked. Mahrezs cross then found fellow Algerian Slimani who timed his run perfectly to nod in his fifth strike of the season from six yards.The goal reinvigorated Leicester but West Brom regained its composure and grabbed the winner in the 72nd.Drinkwaters wretched back-pass sent Phillips clear and the winger outpaced Wes Morgan to dink past Zieler. Michael Crabtree Jersey . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. Rodney Hudson Jersey . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. http:///...ap-bo-jackson-jersey .  Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions.ST. LOUIS - Known for his defence, Yadier Molina is putting together an impressive offensive season. Molina had two more hits Monday night against the Chicago Cubs, including a two-run double, to help the Cardinals to a 5-2 win in the opener of a four-game series. Those two hits raised his average to a National League best .355. Although Molina has topped the .300 mark the past two seasons, hitting .305 in 2011 and a career-best .315 last season, he seems to be at a different level in 2013, though he appears afraid to he might jinx himself. "Next question," Molina said when asked about leading the league in hitting. "Im glad we got the win for Shelby (Miller). At the same time, he pitched pretty good." After waiting out a rain delay of 1 hour, 59 minutes to start the game, Miller (8-4) pitched five scoreless innings to get the win for the Cardinals. He left after five innings with cramps in his right leg. "He did a great job," said St. Louis manager Mike Matheny. "Had a little warning there that his calf had tightened up (and) we didnt know exactly what we were dealing with. We found out its just a cramp. He should be fine." Miller allowed just two hits and struck out five in the shortest start of his career. His previous shortest stint was 5 1-3 innings at Los Angeles on May 26. "I guess I was a little dehydrated this week," Miller said. "But if feels OK. Well see how it feels tomorrow." Kevin Siegrist and Seth Manness followed Miller and combined for two shutout innings before Trevor Rosenthal allowed a run in the eighth on a broken bat single by Nate Schierholtz. Edward Mujica gave up a homer to Darwin Barney with two outs in the ninth, but still earned his 20th save in 20 opportunities. Shane Robinson and Allen Craig added sacrifice flies for the Cardinals, who moved back to a major league best 20 games over .500 (45-25). Chicago fell to 8-22 against the National League Central,, the lowest winning percentage by any team in its own division (. Lester Hayes Jersey. 266). The Cubs are 5-23 when they score three runs or less, including Travis Woods last three starts. Wood (5-6) was again a hard-luck loser, as he gave up four runs on seven hits. He has dropped three straight games despite having a 2.70 ERA in those contests. Its tough for the team," Wood said. "Were scratching and clawing trying to get everything we can right now and trying to put together quality ball games. "Were falling a little short right now, but its a good group of guys. Were going to eventually get it together and string together some wins." Molina was happy the Cardinals were able to break through against Wood. "He beat us in Chicago," Molina said. "Tonight, we executed pretty good. The Cardinals took a 2-0 lead in the fourth. Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday started the inning with singles, and Beltran then went to third on Craigs long fly out to right. Molina then drove both Beltran and Holiday home with a double to the gap in right centre. St. Louis began the seventh the same way, with Molina and David Freese getting singles. Molina would score on a throwing error by first baseman Anthony Rizzo and Freese came home on Robinsons sacrifice fly. Craigs sacrifice fly in the eighth gave the Cardinals a 5-1 lead. NOTES: The Cardinals Adam Wainwright (10-3) will try to become the Major Leagues first 11-game winner when he opposes Jeff Samardzija (3-7) in the second game of the series Tuesday. ... Chicago manager Dale Sveum was ejected with one in the seventh inning after arguing with home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn over whether Molina had eluded Woods tag. "Its a big play in the game at that time," Sveum said. "He blocks the plate and gets there. Its just an out call." St. Louis is 17-7 in the first game of a series. ... Schierholtz has a nine-game hitting streak, equaling his career best. 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 ' ' '
