Englands losing streak Phil Vickerys late try

CLEVELAND -- Sergio Santos wasnt as wild. He was just as worrisome. Santos retired Michael Brantley on a hard grounder with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to close out Torontos 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. Melky Cabrera had four hits and scored Torontos go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Edwin Encarnacions single before the Blue Jays withstood a shaky ninth by Santos, who bounced back from an awful outing in Minnesota on Thursday. "It got a little hairy there," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "But the bottom line is he got it done." On Thursday, Santos threw three wild pitches in the eighth, allowing three runs to score, and he and two Blue Jays relievers combined for eight walks in the inning as the Twins rallied to beat Toronto 9-5 and sweep a doubleheader. Clinging to a 3-2 lead against the Indians, Santos gave up a leadoff double to Lonnie Chisenhall and struck out Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher -- on six pitches. Santos then went to 3-2 counts before walking Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana to load the bases before getting Brantley on a one-hop smash that Encarnacion knocked down before touching the bag. "Trust me, Id love to get a 1-2-3 with fewer pitches," Santos said. "But its a long year and Im trying to learn as much as I can." Santos insisted he didnt carry Thursdays performance to the mound. "I didnt think about that once," he said. "The second we left Minnesota, all that stuff was left there. New day. New stadium. New team. New opportunity. Thats all I was looking for." The Blue Jays trailed 2-1 in the seventh before Munenori Kawasaki hit an RBI single off reliever Marc Rzepczynski (0-1), and Encarnacion delivered against Cody Allen. Steve Delabar (1-0), also involved in the eighth-inning debacle at Minnesota, got the win in relief of starter Drew Hutchison. Following the game, Kawasaki was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for shortstop Jose Reyes, who has been out since opening day with a strained hamstring. Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer for the Indians, who have dropped six of eight. Cabrera got his first three hits off Indians starter Justin Masterson, improving to 15 for 27 against the right-hander. Down 2-1, the Blue Jays scored twice in the seventh to take the lead and chase Masterson. Ryan Goins walked with one out and manager Terry Francona pulled Masterson, who allowed six hits, struck out nine and remained without a decision in four starts. Cabrera followed with a single off Rzepczynski, and Kawasaki tied it with his single. Allen came on to face Jose Bautista, and catcher Yan Gomes throwing error to first moved up the runners. Bautista was then walked intentionally and Encarnacion hammered his single to centre, putting the Blue Jays ahead 3-2. Gomes and Swisher had put on a play to try to pick off Kawasaki, but the throw skipped into right field. "Its a hard one to swallow," Gomes said. "Probably right there it cost us the game." Santana busted out of a long slump with his homer in the sixth off Hutchison to give the Indians a 2-1 lead. Santana was in a 1-for-30 slide before he connected off Hutchison, who took a shutout into the sixth with nine strikeouts. Santana had been hitless in his previous 11 at-bats. Hutchison cruised into the fifth before the Indians finally got to the right-hander. Jason Kipnis beat out an infield single and Santana drove a 3-2 pitch to right for his first homer since Sept. 28. Toronto pushed across a run in the fourth off Masterson, who had escaped a bases-loaded jam in the third. Colby Rasmus doubled off the wall in centre with one out and moved to third on Mastersons wild pitch. Brett Lawrie followed with a tapper toward third that Santana charged but was unable to grab with his bare hand as Rasmus scored. NOTES: Bautista has reached safely in all 17 games. ... Cabrera has 11 four-hit games. With a chance to get his fifth hit, he grounded out in the ninth. ... In addition to the Reyes move, the Blue Jays placed DH Adam Lind on the DL with a sore back. Toronto also purchased the contract of 1B Juan Francisco from Buffalo. They moved INF Macier Izturis (knee) to the 60-day disabled list. ... Hutchisons nine strikeouts matched a career high.

South Africa have won 11 of the 12 Tests between the countries since 2006, including the 2007 World Cup final. Daly to start for England Elliot Daly will make his first England start on Saturday against South Africa However, the Springboks have struggled since reaching last years World Cup semi-finals and come into Saturdays Twickenham clash on the back of a record home defeat to New Zealand and late draw against the Barbarians. England, on the other hand, are on an upward curve and boast a 100 per cent record under Eddie Jones. They will look to build on their Six Nations Grand Slam success and series whitewash of Australia as they seek an 11th successive win. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass The nations have served up some memorable contests in the autumn internationals over the years. Here are five of our favourite Twickenham Tests…2002: England run riot England scored seven tries against the 14-man Springboks South Africa are renowned for their physicality but they completely lost their discipline against Clive Woodwards men and were duly punished as they fell to their heaviest ever defeat.Lock Jannes Labuschagne was red-carded after 23 minutes for a late barge on Jonny Wilkinson, one of a number of cheap shots that left Woodward and the England coaching staff fuming.The England players kept their composure in difficult circumstances and played some inspirational rugby, running in seven tries in a one-sided 53-3 victory. Ben Cohen applauds the sending off of Jannes Labuschagne Will Greenwood scored twice and Lawrence Dallaglio brought England past the half-century mark when he dotted down from a dominant five-metre scrum.The Springboks went a mile over the line today, said England assistant coach Phil Larder. We were always prepared for our key players to be put under pressure but I was surprised by the severity of it.To me the games all about winning, not putting opposition players in a heap over the sideline.2004: Champagne Charlie Charlie Hodgson scored 27 points as England registered their sixth successive win over South Africa Charlie Hodgson led England to their sixth successive win over the Boks as he scored 27 points in a 32-16 victory.The fly-half registered a full house - scoring a try, five penalties, two conversions and a drop goal - with Mark Cueto also touching down for Andy Robinsons side.Bryan Habana crossed for a late try on his Test debut but Springboks coach Jake White admitted his side were outclassed by a superb England performance. QUIZ: Englands last win over SA England were 23-21 winners over South Africa in 2006 but can you name the starting XV? It looked like men against boys at times and these guys are not world champions for nothing, said White.The score probably flattered us a bit and if England had kept the heat on it could have been worse.2006: Englands last win Phil Vickery powered over late on to snap Englands losing streak Phil Vickerys late try gave England a narrow 23-21 victory over the Boks and avoided a record eighth successive Test defeat.ddddddddddddngland trailed 18-6 after tries on either side of half-time by Butch James and Akona Ndungane, with fly-half Hodgson forced off injured shortly before the interval.But the home side capitalised on the sin-binning of Jean de Villiers, Cueto showing quick reactions to touch down after Andy Goode lost the ball while diving for the line, and Vickery barged over late doors to snatch victory. Vunipola ready for brutal Boks Mako Vunipola speaks to Sky Sports ahead of Saturdays Twickenham Test That was for everyone involved in English rugby, said Robinson. It has been tough but everyone kept their composure.The sides met again at Twickenham the following weekend and South Africa prevailed 25-14, sparking the 12-game unbeaten streak against the English.

No contract. 2012: Captains call Chris Robshaws captaincy was called into question after Englands narrow loss to the Springboks Having been criticised for declining kicks at goal during Englands loss to Australia the week previous, Chris Robshaw again came under fire against the Boks.With less than three minutes remaining and England trailing by four points, Robshaw instructed Owen Farrell to go for goal instead of an attacking line-out, much to the fly-halfs disbelief.I thought there would be enough time to go back down there and kick a drop goal, said Robshaw afterwards. England vs Fiji November 19, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass There wasnt, and replays showed Robshaw asking referee Nigel Owens if he was allowed to change his call. South Africa held on for a 16-15 victory thanks to Willem Alberts fortuitous try and 11 points from Patrick Lambie.This defeat was quickly forgotten the following weekend as England produced arguably their best performance under Stuart Lancaster to beat the All Blacks.2014: Losing streak continues South Africa consigned England to their fifth successive Test defeat Three second-half tries were not enough as England fell to a 31-28 loss against South Africa.Danny Care had a moment to forget on his 50th England appearance when his pass was intercepted by Jan Serfontein for the opening try, and a lovely dink over the top by Lambie saw Cobus Reinach cross just 43 seconds after the restart.Englands maul yielded two tries while Victor Matfield was in the bin but the Boks responded with a try from a maul of their own, Schalk Burger the scorer.Dylan Hartley was yellow-carded for a stamp on Duane Vermeulen and that allowed South Africa to extend their lead to eight points, Brad Barritts try coming too late as England fell to a fifth consecutive loss.Watch England v South Africa live on Sky Sports 1 HD on Saturday from 2pm.
