MANCHESTER, England -- Raheem Sterling capped a rousing second-half comeback by Manchester City with the winning goal as Arsenal squandered a lead to lose 2-1 for the second time in five days in the English Premier League on Sunday. Wholesale Mariners Jerseys .The England winger collected Kevin De Bruynes sensational cross-field pass before cutting inside and driving home a low finish in the 71st minute at Etihad Stadium.Arsenal led through Theo Walcotts fifth-minute strike -- another goal that raised questions about Citys defensive frailties -- before Leroy Sane equalized in the 47th with his first goal for City.While City moved back to within seven points of first-place Chelsea, Arsenal dropped nine points off the leaders at the end of a week in which Arsene Wengers team also lost after being 1-0 up at Everton on Tuesday.We were caught cold in the second half and we dropped physically, Wenger said.City has reacted to a 4-2 loss at Leicester last weekend, which led to fierce criticism of coach Pep Guardiolas tactics, with two wins this week to revive the teams title challenge.Guardiolas side dominated the second half after playing it without a recognized striker, with Raheem Sterling -- a winger who was up front in the first half -- was sent out to the right flank.With Fernandinho back from a three-match suspension next week against Hull, Sergio Aguero only banned for one more game and Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus joining in January, things are looking up for City again.The victories give a lot of confidence in the mind of the players in what we are trying to do, Guardiola said. I am so happy for the fans. They stay until the 94th minute, normally they go with 10 minutes left.What will concern Guardiola, though, was the manner in which his defense was opened by Arsenal for Walcotts goal.Hector Bellerin was allowed to power up the field unchallenged from right back and pass the ball to Sanchez, who had dropped deep to also find space between City defense and midfield. Sanchezs reverse pass located Walcott between two defenders and the winger composed himself before slipping a low shot past goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.Guardiola decided not to play John Stones for the second straight game, preferring Nicolas Otamendi and Aleksandar Kolarov at center back, and City was often too open in defense while its build-up play was slow from the central midfield in the first half.It was a different story after halftime, with Arsenal unable to pick up Citys floating midfielders.One of them, Silva, clipped a first-time pass over the top for Sane -- who may have been slightly offside -- to race clear and sidefoot home for a first goal in his 13th appearance for City.Sane was denied in a one-on-one opportunity by Petr Cech, who tipped aside De Bruynes deflected shot. De Bruyne was growing in influence and it was his stunning pass that set up the winner.Guardiola praised the quality and the vision from Kevin to make an exceptional pass.Seven points is still a huge distance from a team who made 11 wins in a row, Guardiola said, referring to Chelsea. (We need to) be there as much as possible and wait for the opponent to fail. Cheap MLB Jerseys .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey .

The Indians, held in check for three innings by Reds starter Homer Bailey, scored seven runs with two outs in the fourth and rolled to a 7-1 win over Cincinnati. The rally featured six straight run-scoring hits and supported a strong outing by Scott Kazmir, who allowed one run in seven innings. "That was really fun to watch," Indians manager Terry Francona said of the big inning that gave the Indians a split of the annual Ohio Cup interleague series. Reds manager Dusty Baker understandably had a different point of view. "Its been a long time since Ive seen a team get six straight two-out hits," he said. "Im not sure what the Indians figured out there, but whatever it was, it worked." The Reds won in Cincinnati on Monday and Tuesday before the Indians took both games when the series shifted to Cleveland. Cincinnati has lost nine in a row at Progressive Field and havent won in Cleveland since May 22, 2010. Run-scoring singles by Michael Brantley and Yan Gomes, an RBI double by Ryan Raburn, a two-run double by Michael Bourn and an RBI single by Jason Kipnis chased Bailey in the fourth. Asdrubal Cabrera added a run-scoring double off Alfredo Simon. "Brantley opened the doors for us with that two-out knock and everybody else tried to follow suit," Raburn said. "Sometimes that doesnt work but tonight it did." The Indians carried a five-game losing streak, in which they scored 14 runs, into the series. Cleveland had also dropped seven of eight, but the bats woke up when the Reds hit town. Cleveland homered twice Wednesday, including a game-clinching three-run homer by Jason Giambi, and fell one run off their biggest inning of the season Thursday. "That was impressive," Francona said. "We had a tough time breaking through. Baileys got good stuff. We kept extending the inning." Jay Bruce drove in Cincinnatis only run with an RBI single in the sixth. Kazmir (3-2) recorded his longest outing in the majors in three years. The left-hander dodged a bases-loaded jam in the third when he got Joey Votto, who came into the game batting .417 in May, to bounce into an inning-ending double play. "That was huge," Kazmir said. "Hes a very good hitter. I knew I had to be careful. Thhats the bottom line. Cheap Seattle Mariners Jerseys. quot; Bailey (3-4) retired the first seven hitters before Gomes reached on an infield hit in the third. The bottom fell out for the right-hander, who lasted 3 2-3 innings for his shortest outing of the season, in the fourth. Cabrera was hit by a pitch and took second on Carlos Santanas one-out single. After Mark Reynolds struck out, Brantley, who was in a 1-for-15 skid, singled sharply through the left side to score Cabrera. Gomes followed by lining a single to left, scoring Santana. Raburns double to left scored Brantley before Bourn drove a double into the left-field corner for two more runs and a 5-0 lead. Kipnis, who was in a 4-for-34 slump, singled to right to score Bourn and finish Bailey. Cabrera doubled to right against Simon. Brantley and Kipnis werent the only Cleveland hitters to break out of slumps in the inning. Santana came into the game batting .204 in May while Raburn was in a 3-for-24 skid. Bailey, who threw 45 pitches in the fourth, allowed seven runs -- tying his season high. Kazmir, a two-time All-Star with Tampa Bay, had his career sidetracked by arm problems that began in 2009. He was traded to the Angels that season but was 9-15 in 2010 and appeared in only one game the following year before being released. The Indians signed him to a minor-league contract in January after he pitched in an independent league last season. Kazmir, who was 0-1 and allowed 11 earned runs in 13 innings in his past three starts, won for the first time since May 9. Votto went 0-for-4, snapping his career-long 18-game road hitting streak.
