when the Brewers sent up a left-handed pinch-hitter

While the issue of fighting in hockey continues to be debated across the country and around the National Hockey League, Calgary Flames president of hockey operations Brian Burke offered his opinion as a guest columnist for USA Today this week. In his various tenures as an NHL general manager, Burke made it clear that his formula for winning involves a combination of skilled players and tough customers. When his Anaheim Ducks won the Stanley Cup in 2007, the team led the league in fighting majors. And that was echoed in his written piece saying he supports fighting in hockey along with his concerns if policing the game in that manner is ever eliminated. "Reduced to its simplest truth, fighting is one of the mechanisms that regulates the level of violence in our game," wrote Burke in USA Today. "Players who break the rules are held accountable by other players. The instigator rule has reduced accountability. Eliminating fighting would render it extinct." Burke went another step further in surmising that fighting makes the game safer. "Our game is improved tremendously by players ability to police the game," he added. "It makes it more exciting and honourable. It allows skill players to focus on the skilled aspects of the game because someone else can watch their back. And it fundamentally makes our game safer." Burke added that there are three levels of protection for players in the current NHL with the leagues Department of Player Safety as the last level, the on-ice officials as the second level and peer accountability as the first and longest standing. "This was the first level of protection when we opened our doors more than 100 years ago. It still is. And that is as it should be," he wrote. "The first line of defense against players crossing the line is players." However, the long-time NHL executive did provide two premises about the reduction of fighting and the legitimate safety concerns that go with it.  "First, the role and amount of fighting in hockey has been systematically reduced over the last 20 years. Thats a good thing," added Burke. "Second, a guy like me who supports fighting is not saying to ignore the medical consequences. I care deeply about my players." Earnest Byner Redskins Jersey .

Tyler Clippard (5-2) pitched a scoreless 15th for the win.PHOENIX -- Wily Peralta had trouble keeping the ball down in the second inning and Arizona took advantage, lining one hit after another. The right-hander started hitting his spots after that, setting up Milwaukee for a big finish. Peralta pitched seven effective innings, Aramis Ramirez lined a two-run double in the eighth inning and the Brewers broke open a close game late for a 9-3 victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday night. "In that second inning, I was missing pitches, missing location," Peralta said. "After that, I just got into a rhythm." Peralta (7-5) shook off that shaky inning to keep the NL Central-leading Brewers close against Arizona and Brandon McCarthy. Milwaukee ran away with it once McCarthy left, scoring three runs in the eighth against Will Harris (0-2): two on Ramirezs third hit and another on a run-scoring single by Khris Davis. Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple off J.J. Putz in the ninth inning and Scooter Gennett had a run-scoring single after homering earlier in the game for the Brewers, who had 12 hits. "We swung the ball really well throughout the game," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "There were a couple of chances early where we could have broken the game open." McCarthy gave the Diamondbacks a chance, shaking off his own early troubles to go seven innings. He helped himself out, too, slashing a two-run single in the second inning. Arizonas bullpen, which has been solid recently, couldnt hold it. Harris gave up the three runs with two outs in the ninth and the Brewers kept hitting from there, sending Arizona to its fifth loss in six games. "We had it set up pretty good right there, but it didnt work out," said Arizona manager Kirk Gibson, who was ejected in the ninth inning after a review failed to overturn a stolen base call at third base. "Two outs and to score all those runs, it didnt work out the way it wanted to." Both starters had some rough moments before settling down. Peralta appeared to be back on track in his last start after two shaky outings, holding the New York Mets to a run over 6 2-3 innings. The hard-throwing right-hander didnt keep the momentum rolling early against the Diamondbacks, giving up five hits in Arizonas three--run second inning.dddddddddddd. Roger Kieschnick had a run-scoring single in in his first at-bat after being called up to replace Bronson Arroyo, who was placed on the disabled list for the first time in his career due to a sore elbow. McCarthy, a .125 hitter this season, followed with a jam-shot single to right, driving in two more runs to put Arizona up 3-2. Peralta was sharp after that, retiring 10 straight batters until Kieschnick lined a leadoff single in the seventh. Arizona got two on against him, but Peralta hustled to first base to complete an inning-ending double play. He allowed three runs and nine hits and struck out six. "I still thought he fought it, was still up in the zone too much," Roenicke said. "Weve got to get him down in the zone, try to get some easy outs. Hes working so hard out there to get outs." McCarthy gave up five runs in his last start and appeared to be headed toward another shaky outing. He gave up two runs in the second inning and a leadoff homer by Gennett in the third, the 15th he has allowed this season. McCarthy retired 13 of the next 14 batters he faced, though, and was helped along by three double plays. Left fielder Gerardo Parra had the best of the bunch in the third inning, diving to rob Ramirez of a hit and throwing out Braun at second after he thought the ball was going to fall for a hit. Second baseman Aaron Hill also made diving stop up the middle to get Mark Reynolds in the seventh inning. McCarthy came out to start the eighth, but was lifted when the Brewers sent up a left-handed pinch-hitter. He allowed three runs and seven hits. "Back in a good place. I started attacking more and trying to do everything I could to keep us in it and go as deep as I could," McCarthy said. NOTES: A moment of silence was held before the game to honour Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who died Monday from cancer at 54. ... The Brewers started Elian Herrera in centre field to give Carlos Gomez a night off. Gomez has reached base in 30 straight games. ...
