MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Down by 10 points in the second quarter, their playoff chances fading, the Baltimore Ravens finally picked up a first down.After that, the Miami Dolphins couldnt stop them.The Ravens rallied with consecutive touchdown drives of 97 and 75 yards, then added the clinching score after a favourable replay reversal to beat Miami 28-13 Sunday.A gamble by coach John Harbaugh in the third quarter helped. The Ravens made a first down on fourth-and-1 in their own territory, jump-starting the TD drive that put them ahead.The victory gave Baltimore (8-5) a significant edge over Miami (7-6) in the AFCs scramble for a wild-card playoff berth. The Ravens also tightened the race for the AFC North title, helped by a loss by first-place Cincinnati (8-4-1) to Pittsburgh.Our fate is in our hands, Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs said. If we win, were in. Thats the mentality well have down the stretch.The Dolphins, who havent been to the post-season since 2008, are now a long shot with three games to go. Their frustration boiled over in the final minutes, when defensive tackle Jared Odrick yelled at coach Joe Philbin on the sideline after a long Ravens gain.Emotions were running high, Odrick said. I probably should have calmed down a little earlier.Said Philbin: Footballs an emotional game. We had a discussion. Ive already had another discussion with him. Football gets fiery out there. Its good.But the Dolphins showed little fire in the final three quarters, when they were outgained 425-161. The Ravens played 17 minutes before they made a first down and still finished with 26 first downs and 447 yards.Elvis Dumervil led Baltimores defensive charge with 3 1/2 sacks, increasing his season total to a franchise-record 16. Miamis Ryan Tannehill threw for 227 yards and a score, but was sacked six times.Baltimore allowed the Dolphins only 249 yards.We settled down and started grasping how they were trying to play us, Dumervil said. We started making plays.The Ravens Joe Flacco went 25 for 33 for 269 yards and two touchdowns, and overcame an interception in the end zone. He also ran for a score.Flacco and Harbaugh improved to 5-0 against the Dolphins, including four wins in Miami. The Ravens won without defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, suspended during the week for a performance-enhancing substance violation, and they bounced back from a last-minute loss last week at home to San Diego.Weve got a team thats playing pretty well right now and gaining some confidence, Flacco said.Leading 14-13, the Ravens were helped by a replay reversal midway through the fourth quarter. Flacco fumbled attempting to throw and Miami recovered, but a review determined his arm was moving forward when he lost the ball, and the play was ruled an incomplete pass.On the next play, Justin Forsett scored on a 2-yard run.The Dolphins gave up 183 yards rushing and have allowed 661 in the past three games.The Ravens went three-and-out on their first three possessions, but drove the length of the field in the final 3:08 of the first half, capped by Flaccos 1-yard pass to Steve Smith on third down with two seconds left. That cut their deficit to 10-7.When Baltimore went for a first down on fourth-and-1 at their 34 in the third quarter, Flacco gained 2 yards on a sneak.Weve got an offensive line that can do something like that, Harbaugh said. We had decided if we got close there, we were going to go for it.Flacco went on to hit Kamar Aiken with a 13-yard pass for the score and the lead.Miami was up 10-0 in the second quarter when a long completion and scoring threat were negated by a penalty on guard Mike Pouncey for being downfield on the play. That infraction seemed to deflate the Dolphins.Its definitely disappointing, especially having the lead, having the upper hand early on, then falling apart, Miami linebacker Jelani Jenkins said.Notes: Dolphins S Louis Delmas was carted off the field in the fourth quarter with a right knee injury. Jenkins left the game in the third quarter with a foot injury and didnt return. C Samson Satele left the game with an undisclosed injury in the fourth quarter. ... Ravens CB Anthony Levine left the game in the first quarter with concussion and didnt return. CB Danny Gorrer left the game with a knee injury in the second half and didnt return. ...

CHICAGO -- The Minnesota Twins just kept scoring, and rookie Danny Santana played a key role in their biggest offensive game of the year. Santana had five hits and four RBIs, and the Twins set season highs for runs and hits in a rain-delayed 16-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. "It was a lot of fun," Santana said. Santana had two hits and two RBIs in Minnesotas nine-run eighth inning, when it sent 14 batters to the plate and had nine hits against three relievers. The five hits set a season high for the centre fielder, who was one off his best for RBIs set June 7 against Houston. "He had a good day; with five hits, thats kind of an understatement," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Hes a nice looking player. Playing centre field, hes a shortstop. Hes fun." It just got worse for Chicago in the ninth, when Chris Parmelee, Oswaldo Arcia and Eric Fryer hit consecutive homers off White Sox reliever Andre Rienzo. It was the first time the Twins had three consecutive homers since July 12, 2001, at Milwaukee. Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer for Chicago, which was hurt by poor bullpen work. Javy Guerra (1-3), Taylor Thompson, Ronald Belisario, Eric Surkamp and Rienzo allowed a total of 15 runs and 18 hits over the final four innings. Thompson was sent down to Triple-A Charlotte after the game. "It seemed OK until the sixth, and after that it just got loose and you couldnt stop it," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. Belisario, who served as Chicagos closer for a short stretch this season, faced four batters in the eighth and failed to record an out. He was charged with four runs, increasing his ERA to an unseemly 6.23. "I dont know what to say," Belisario said. "They got us. I have nothing to say." Kyle Gibson (10-8) was the beneficiary of Minnesotas big day at the plate. The 6-foot-6 right-hander allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings wwhile improving to 3-1 with a 3.dddddddddddd08 ERA in his last four starts. Chicago starter Jose Quintana struggled through three errors and two rain delays (for a total of 45 minutes) in the first two innings. He managed to get through five innings on 116 pitches, leaving with a 3-1 lead thanks to a three-run fourth for the White Sox. Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI double and scored on Viciedos 13th homer. Minnesota responded with three runs in the sixth. Eduardo Nunez had a run-scoring single before Santanas two-run double lifted the Twins to a 4-3 lead. Santana added an RBI triple and run-scoring infield hit in the eighth. The Twins finished with 23 hits. "Goodness gracious, up to the eighth inning it was a 4-3 ballgame then the ball starting flying all over the place," Gardenhire said. SCHAFER CLAIMED The Twins announced during the game that they had claimed outfielder Jordan Schafer off waivers from Atlanta. Schafer, who was selected by Atlanta in the third round of the 2005 draft, was designed for assignment after the Braves acquired utilityman Emilio Bonifacio and left-hander James Russell in a trade with the Cubs on Thursday. Gardenhire said left-hander Logan Darnell will be optioned to the minor leagues to make room for Schafer. GARCIA INJURED White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia, currently on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte, was hit by a pitch and removed from the Knights game on Sunday. He was diagnosed with a bruised left triceps and is day to day. He had left shoulder surgery in April. ON DECK The Twins open a two-game home series against San Diego on Tuesday, with Padres right-hander Jesse Hahn (7-2, 2.01 ERA) going against right-hander Phil Hughes (10-8, 4.12 ERA) in the opener. The White Sox continue their six-game homestand with the opener of a three-game set with Texas on Monday, with Rangers right-hander Nick Martinez (1-7, 5.08 ERA) facing Hector Noesi (5-8, 5.21 ERA).
