NEW YORK -- Curtis Granderson envisioned a bunch of big hits when he signed with the New York Mets. Providing even one proved elusive, until Friday night. The slumping Granderson grounded an RBI single to cap an improbable two-run rally with two outs in the ninth inning that sent the Mets past the Miami Marlins 4-3. "Anytime you get a chance to win and jump up and down with your teammates, its a good thing," Granderson said. Granderson was 0 for 4 when he stepped to the plate with the scoreboard showing his batting average at .130. Not quite what anyone expected for a former All-Star fresh off a $60 million, four-year contract. "Im not there yet, but Im getting closer," Granderson said. After Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Garrett Jones hit back-to-back home runs in the Miami eighth for a 3-2 lead, the Mets stung Marlins closer Steve Cishek and won for the fifth time in six games. Cishek (1-1) had converted a team-record 33 straight save chances -- the longest active streak in the majors -- before Lucas Duda led off the ninth with a soft single and moved up on a sacrifice. Left fielder Christian Yelich made a nice running catch on pinch-hitter Bobby Abreus liner for the second out. Omar Quintanilla followed with a single down the line and Yelich slipped on the dirt as he got ready to throw home, letting Duda score standing up. "It wouldve been a tough play," Yelich said. "But if I had stayed on my feet, I was going home." Pinch-hitter Kirk Nieuwenhuis doubled to put runners at second and third. Granderson then grounded his game-winner past Jones at first base. "Ill be up a while," the sidearming Cishek said. "Its never a good feeling." "Its no excuse for me to come in and not get the job done," he said. "I just didnt have my good command, leaving pitches down the middle." Granderson had a game-winning sacrifice fly in the 14th inning Sunday against Atlanta. "Hes a great hitter," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Just because he hasnt gotten a whole lot of hits to this point doesnt mean hes not a great hitter." Redmond felt confident Cishek would close out the Mets. "Hes been so good," Redmond said. "I always anticipate hes going to get out of it. And tonight, he didnt." "You just see the momentum starting to roll their way and we couldnt stop it," he said. Jeurys Familia (1-2) pitched a scoreless inning for his first big league win. Yelichs hitting streak ended at 17 games, and the Marlins fell to 1-9 on the road. Saltalamacchia homered to left-centre off reliever Gonzalez Germen, and Jones followed with a drive off the right-field foul pole. The Mets hadnt allowed any home runs since last Saturday, a span of 57 innings. Young starters Zack Wheeler and Henderson Alvarez both pitched well. Wheeler, a month before he turns 24, struck out 10 in six innings. He gave up four singles and walked three in six innings. Wheeler showed off his repertoire when he fanned the side in the third, all on swinging strike three -- he got Alvarez on a fastball, Yelich on a changeup and Marcell Ozuna on a curve. A week past his 24th birthday, Alvarez gave up two runs in six innings. In his previous start, he pitched a two-hit shutout against Seattle. David Wright hit an RBI single and scored on Daniel Murphys double in the third to put the Mets ahead 2-0. Ozuna hit an RBI single in the fifth that made it 2-1. NOTES: Marlins RHP Kevin Slowey (0-0, 4.15 ERA) is set to start Saturday night against RHP Jenrry Mejia (3-0, 1.99). ... Cishek had converted his first four save chances this season. ... In the last 11 games, no Mets starter has allowed more than three runs. ... Murphy stole third, and has been safe on his last 26 tries. Max Scharping Womens Jersey .

According to the sportsbook BoDog, the Stampeders are 8/5 favourites to take home the Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium in Regina on November 24.Rob Holding is not the big name signing Arsenal fans were waiting for, but how good is he? And what will he bring to the Emirates? Nick Wright profiles the 20-year-old with the help of one of his former Bolton team-mates. There was not much to cheer at the Macron Stadium last season. Bolton Wanderers were crippled by spiralling debts, transfer embargoes and disarray behind the scenes, and supporters watched in dismay as a chaotic campaign ended with relegation from the Championship to League One.While Bolton lurched from one setback to the next, however, the emergence of a young defender from their academy provided a glimmer of light. Little was expected of the local lad in the number 45 shirt at the start of the campaign, but a year on from making his debut in a Capital One Cup tie against Burton Albion, Rob Holding heads to Arsenal as a rising star. The speed of Holdings ascent has taken everyone at Bolton by surprise - including himself. At the start of the season, I was dreaming of playing a couple of senior games, he said after collecting their Player of the Year award in April. For it to have panned out like it has is just a dream come true.There is something typically Arsene Wenger about signing a £2m defender from Bolton while Arsenal fans anxiously await a superstar striker, but he is not the only one to have spotted something special in Holding, who made 30 appearances over the course of his breakthrough campaign. Holding challenges Charlton striker Igor Vetokele Scouts from up and down the Premier League were drawn to the Macron Stadium to watch him, and at the end of the campaign his impressive form was recognised with a call-up to the England U21 squad for the Toulon Tournament, where he played twice as Gareth Southgates side lifted the trophy.His Bolton team-mate Derik Osede understands the fuss. Osede was another of Boltons better performers last season having arrived from Real Madrid Castilla in the summer, and the Spaniard partnered Holding in the centre of their defence in the second half of the campaign. Arsenal squad is good enough Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis says Arsenal are good enough to win the league. I heard the rumours when they started last season, Osede tells Sky Sports. I think its a great step for him. He needs to be at a team who will help him grow as a player, and Arsenal are a team who give young players a lot of opportunities. Im sure he will take his chance and it will go very well because hes an excellent player and he has a great future.Its high praise from Osede, but Holdings future didnt look so bright when he was hauled off in a galling Championship debut against Middlesbrough back in August. The inexperienced youngster struggled as part of a back three as Bolton fell to a 3-0 defeat at the Riverside Stadium, with manager Neil Lennon conceding he quite clearly got it wrong after the game. Watch Rob Holding make a well executed slide tackle with one boot on and the other in his hand! It felt like too much, too soon for Holding.dddddddddddd. The academy graduate dropped out of the team for the next four months, but when he returned to their starting line-up for a trip to Hull in December, he stayed there. Boltons chances of survival were looking bleaker by the week, but Holding shone at right-back and centre-back despite the challenging circumstances.The inexperienced youngster stood up to the physical challenges of Championship football, and he demonstrated impressive technical ability, too.Holding plays out from the back with coolness and composure, and he is similarly adept at carrying the ball forward himself, muscling past opponents and driving into space in midfield. He reads the game intelligently, with an average of 3.3 interceptions per game only bettered by three players to have made at least 20 Championship appearances last season. Holding was part of Englands U21 squad for the Toulon Tournament Hes a good team-mate, says Osede. Hes quite tall, hes strong and he has a lot of quality. Its not easy to show that in the centre of defence. Coaches in England like tall, physical players at the back, and tall players dont usually have as much technical quality as shorter ones, but Rob is a complete defender. He can play in any position in defence.Lennon eventually left Bolton by mutual consent as they slid towards relegation, but before his departure he talked up Holdings growing influence on the side. Rob Holding has been a superstar for me, he said in February. Every game he seems to be growing in maturity and improving in performance.Holding showed consistency and leadership despite his tender age, and while he is a long way from being the finished article, Osede feels his maturity sets him apart. He sees things clearly and he is very mature for his age, which is really what you want, he says. It didnt help that everything went badly for the team last season, but Rob has a lot of personality for a young player. I think teams like that. Five breakthrough stars Which Premier League youngsters could make the big breakthrough in 2016/17? Arsenal have certainly taken note. The Gunners are light on cover at centre-back and right-back, and Holding already looks well-placed to jump above Calum Chambers, who has been linked with a loan move away from the Emirates after his development stalled last season.The Gunners have plenty left to do in the transfer market, but for Holding, the move caps a fast-tracked rise to the top. This time last year his only first-team experience was a solitary substitute appearance on loan at Bury. Now, he is brushing shoulders with the elite. For those who witnessed his progress at Bolton last season, it wont have come as much of a surprise.
