SAN FRANCISCO -- Mix Diskerud figures the whole honour of wearing No. Clayton Geathers Jersey . 10 is only temporary. He fully expects to play alongside Landon Donovan again down the road with the U.S. national team. For one night at least, Diskerud did that jersey proud. Diskerud and Aron Johannsson, a pair of second-half substitutes raised in Scandinavia, scored to lift a heavy-legged United States over Azerbaijan 2-0 on Tuesday night in the first of three World Cup warmups for the Americans. "Its an honour. A lot of great players have been wearing that No. 10 for the U.S. previously," Diskerud said. "Ill enjoy it. When it comes to Landon, Im sure that were going to be playing together again someday, and of course he has more caps than me so Im just borrowing the uniform right now." The U.S. needed a boost from the bench after captain Clint Dempsey was scratched just before kickoff because of a sore left groin. But the 14th-ranked Americans had trouble breaking down No. 85 Azerbaijan. Diskerud, born in Oslo to a father from Norway and mother from Arizona who met in college, entered in the 71st and scored four minutes later off Brad Davis free kick. With the ball high in the box, Diskerud headed it down to Michael Bradley, whose shot was cleared off the goal line by Elvin Yunuszade. Diskerud then banged the ball in with a right-footed shot 6 yards for his third international goal. "It deflected, and then it was just an easy job for me to score," Diskerud said. "I got tackled exactly when I was going to shoot, and I was just laying down on the ground in agony." He was wearing the No. 10 freed up when Donovan was cut from the roster last Thursday. Johannsson, who was born in Mobile, Alabama, and moved to Iceland with his family when he was 3, entered in the 62nd and scored his second American goal in the 81st with an open header from the top of the 6-yard box off a corner kick by Davis, who replaced Graham Zusi at the start of the second half. "I think we can be very happy with this game," Johannsson said. "Weve been working ridiculously hard in training." Tim Howard, making his 98th international appearance, got his 53rd win to tie Kasey Kellers U.S. record. The Americans began their intense two-week training camp May 14 at nearby Stanford University, and there appeared to be tired legs. "It was exactly what we need at this point of our preparation after two fully loaded weeks," U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "It was a tricky game. You want to open it up with a goal, and it gets easier. You want to score a bit earlier. Next up is a match Sunday against Turkey at Harrison, New Jersey, followed by a game with Nigeria six days later in Jacksonville, Florida. Then the Americans head to Brazil for their seventh straight World Cup appearance and first-round matches against Ghana, Portugal and Germany. "Its good to finally get going. Now we can play hard, recover, travel and go again," Howard said. "I thought it was good. I thought tonight was what we probably expected." The Americans arrived in a red-white-and-blue bus sporting the teams slogan: "One Nation. One Team." The focus was on Klinsmann, who made the controversial decision to cut Donovan, the American career scoring leader. Dempsey, slated to start up top with Jozy Altidore in a 4-4-2, was an unexpected absence. "We dont want to risk here anything," said Klinsmann, who estimated Dempsey would heal in two-to-three days. "Its not serious at all." Chris Wondolowski, a local fan favourite of the San Jose Earthquakes inserted in place of Dempsey, was stopped twice early by goalkeeper Kamran Aghayev, the first with a knee on a diving header in the fifth minute. Wondolowskis header off a cross from Alejandro Bedoya in the 15th was parried over the bar. "You have to be ready at a moments notice," Wondolowski said. "Thats why I was a bit disappointed not to find the back of the net. I had a couple of great opportunities that I need to find the corner and hit the back of the net." Azerbaijan, coached by U.S. team adviser Berti Vogts, was outscored 5-0 in a pair of World Cup qualifiers by Portugal. With wind whipping the corner flags early and even the ball out of place during restarts, a new-look U.S. defence was hardly tested. Fabian Johnson started at right back, with Matt Besler and Geoff Cameron as the central defenders, picked over Omar Gonzalez, who replaced Cameron in the second half. DaMarcus Beasley, looking to become the first American to appear in four World Cups, was at left back. Besler and Cameron played together in the middle once previously, against Jamaica in a World Cup qualifier last October. For the first time since 1990, the Americans have no central defenders with previous World Cup experience. Johnson started three games at left back last year but just once on the right -- in the clinching World Cup qualifier against Mexico in September. Klinsmann used a midfield diamond for the second straight game, with Michael Bradley at the top, Jermaine Jones deep, Zusi on the right and Bedoya the left. This match became the true final football game at Candlestick, former home of the NFL San Francisco 49ers through last season and baseballs San Francisco Giants until after 1999.

MIAMI -- Entering Thursday night, the Philadelphia Phillies were 1-40 when trailing after eight innings. Make that 2-40 now. Tony Gwynn Jr. led off the ninth with a walk against Miami closer Steve Cishek and later scored, Ben Revere added the go-ahead run when Miami second baseman Donovan Solano bobbled a potential double-play grounder and the Phillies rallied past the Marlins 5-4 Thursday night to snap a six-game losing streak. "We basically took what they gave us," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "As they gave us bases our guys were alert and had the speed on the bases to get into scoring position and then it was just balls in play and avoiding strikeouts and making something happen." Revere had two hits for the Phillies, who won for the third time in 13 games. It was Reveres sixth multi-hit game in his last eight outings. It was back-and-forth all night, the last swing going Philadelphias way: The Marlins led 2-0, the Phillies went up 3-2 and the Marlins scored two in the eighth, grabbing a 4-3 lead on Jeff Bakers pinch-hit triple. But in the ninth, Cishek gave the Phillies a chance, and they took advantage. "I just made things more difficult than they needed to be," said Cishek, who was 18 for 19 in save chances entering Thursday. "And the end result kind of showed right there." Gwynn went to third on a single by Revere and wound up scoring the tying run on a grounder by Jimmy Rollins. Chase Utley then hit another grounder to Solano, who only had the play at first and allowed Revere to score easily. Marlins manager Mike Redmond didnt speculate about what Solanos bobble meant, saying the innings biggest mistake was the free pass Cishek (4-4) issued to Gwynn. "He walked the leadoff guy," Redmond said. "So after that, I dont think it matters." Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon got his 19th ssave in 21 chances. Wholesale Colts Jerseys China. . Jake Diekman (3-2) got the win despite a shaky eighth, giving up two runs and costing Philadelphia the lead. "Good thing is we didnt get swept, we were able to get a win," Gwynn said. "Hopefully it will propel us into some more. Getting swept is a bad feeling and then having to get on a plane after that is even worse." Marcell Ozuna had three hits and scored twice for Miami, and Christian Yelich also had a two-hit night for the Marlins. Casey McGehee extended his hit streak to 10 for Miami, reaching base for the 27th straight game. Cameron Rupp had a two-run, two-out, full-count double off Miami reliever Chris Hatcher to highlight Philadelphias three-run sixth. Rupp was batting .125 before his opposite-field hit sailed over Giancarlo Stantons head and off the right-field wall. Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick gave up six hits and struck out four in seven innings, leaving with a 3-2 lead. Marlins starter Brad Hand gave up three singles to open the sixth and was chased after 99 pitches, the fourth-most of his career. Hands sacrifice bunt -- his first RBI in nearly three years -- allowed Ozuna to score Miamis first run in the second. Ozuna singled and scored again in the fifth, Yelich driving him in that time for a 2-0 Miami lead. NOTES: Through two innings, Hand had thrown 47 pitches, Kendrick 20. ...
