BALTIMORE -- For much of the afternoon, Aaron Rodgers was ducking oncoming linemen and misconnecting with hurried throws. When it counted, however, Rodgers came up with the big plays. Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, Eddie Lacy ran for 120 yards and Mason Crosby kicked four field goals as the Green Bay Packers beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 on Sunday. Rodgers went 17 for 32 for 315 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He played most of the game without two of his top three receivers -- James Jones hurt his left knee on a first-quarter play, and Randall Cobb left for good after being struck on his right knee on a tackle by Matt Elam. And still, Rodgers was magnificent. His 64-yarder to Nelson gave Green Bay a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter. After the Ravens closed to 19-17 on an 18-yard touchdown catch by Dallas Clark with 2:04 remaining, Rodgers clinched the victory with a 52-yard completion to Jermichael Finley on a third-and-3. Rodgers completed only seven passes after halftime, yet those plays totalled 199 yards. "Days like today remind you of why you love this game so much," Rodgers said. "Offensively, were struggling a little bit, but we found a way to make enough plays to win." The Ravens (3-3) had won 13 straight at home against NFC foes. "Aaron made some really good plays out of the pocket in the second half," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. "Early, he held it and took some sacks. Later, he held it and found some openings." Rodgers received ample aid from a depleted defence. Despite playing without injured linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones, the Packers limited Baltimore to 47 yards rushing and registered five sacks, including three by A.J. Hawk. "Its kind of been our motto for a long time around here: Next man up. We have to make it work," Hawk said. "We had a lot of young guys out there today who really did a good job." It all added up to Green Bays first road win following losses at San Francisco and Cincinnati. "Its important to win on the road in this league if you want to make the playoffs," Rodgers said. "This was a tough environment. This is a team thats defending champs, a football team thats very well-coached, great players on both sides of the ball. This is a great team character-building win." Green Bay went up 9-0 in the third quarter when Crosby kicked a 50-yard field goal to cap a drive that featured a 43-yard pass play from Rodgers to Jarrett Boykin. Baltimore answered with its first score, a 23-yard field goal by Justin Tucker following a 59-yard completion from Joe Flacco to rookie Marlon Brown. Harassed and hurried for much of the afternoon, Rodgers finally came up with a signature moment. He started to his left, then rolled right before lofting a perfect spiral to Nelson, who had gotten behind Lardarius Webb. Down 16-3, the Ravens began playing with a sense of urgency. Flacco directed a 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones with 11:52 remaining. Jones, who missed the previous four weeks with a knee injury, finished with two catches for 42 yards and had a 35-yard kickoff return. Looking to enhance Green Bays 16-10 lead, Rodgers and the Packers held onto the ball for just over 7 1/2 minutes before Crosby kicked a 31-yard field goal with 4:17 remaining. It turned out to be the game-winner. Flacco went 20 for 34 for 342 yards and got no help from the running game -- Ray Rice finished with 34 yards on 14 carries and was stuffed three straight times inside the 5 during the second quarter. "Weve got to be better on first and second down," Flacco said. Baltimore accumulated only 36 yards of offence during the first quarter, zero on the ground. In the second quarter, a peculiar sequence of events began when Green Bays Ryan Taylor blocked a punt. The ball bounced beyond the line of scrimmage, was touched by John Kuhn of the Packers and recovered by Baltimore at its own 41-yard line. The Ravens subsequently got a first-and-goal at the Green Bay 4, but four straight runs failed to get the ball into the end zone. Late in the half, Flacco was sacked and lost the ball. Green Bays Datone Jones recovered and Crosby connected on a 31-yard field goal as time expired for a 6-0 lead.

Rafael Furcal led off with a single -- although replays seemed to show the ball was caught -- and Albert Pujols homered later in the inning, sending the St. Louis Cardinals to a 2-1 win over the Marlins on Saturday night. McKeon came out to argue after right-fielder Mike Stanton appeared to catch the ball. First base umpire Vic Carapazza and the other umps huddled and then ruled the ball hit the ground. "Theres no question about it, we all thought he caught it," McKeon said. "Like I told the umpires, you got four guys out here and four guys cant see it. Maybe thats another reason why we ought to have instant replay." MLB is leaning toward adding replay on trapped balls next season. "No question its the difference in the ballgame," McKeon said. "Youre not going to criticize the umpires or rip them because its a tough job, but on the other hand weve got to get these plays right. We cant have it consistently three or four times a week and its questionable stuff. Lets go to instant replay. To us in the dugout, it was very obvious it was a clean catch. Its tough when it comes down to thats the deciding run of the ballgame. "But you dont get any prizes. We get kicked out of a game or the players perform poorly or dont do their job, theyre sent out. But theres no consequences if we continue to make bad calls." he said. "Thats a tough job, Im not going to single out that guy. He had a bad night. We all make mistakes, but when it comes down to losing ballgames when you got three or four guys out there and all of them cant see it, then we better go to instant replay." Chris Carpenter (7-8) gave up five hits over 6 2-3 innings as the Cardinals won for the fourth time in five games. Fernando Salas, the fifth Cardinals pitcher, worked a scoreless ninth for his 21st save in 24 chances. Ricky Nolasco (8-8) gave up 10 hits in seven innings. Daniel Descalso had three hitss for the Cardinals.dddddddddddd Sluggers Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and Pujols each had an extra-base hit, giving the trio 10 in the first three games of the series. "Best lineup in the league, by far," Nolasco said. "Not to knock anyone elses lineup, but when you have to face those three guys back-to-back-to back and possibly with runners on, theres no doubt thats the best three, four, five in the league." The Cardinals held on for the win despite leaving 12 men on base. They were 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position. "Thats part of the game," Pujols said. Carpenter struck out seven and walked two. Hes won six of his last seven decisions and defeated the Marlins for the first time since August 29, 2005. "You want to make pitches, thats what youre supposed to do as a starter," Carpenter said. "Youre trying to execute the whole game until your job is over and the manager comes out to take the ball from you. I was able to make pitches when I had to." The Marlins made it 2-1 in the fourth when Dewayne Wise was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Nolasco grounded into a double play to end the Marlins threat. "That was a big part of the game," Carpenter said. "From that point on, I executed and made pitches."
