ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- This is the most productive month of Kelly Johnsons career, and Monday was the most productive day. Johnson became the first player in Tampa Bay history to hit two three-run homers in the same game, and the Rays needed them in a 10-6 victory against the Miami Marlins. "Kelly drove the offensive engine today," manager Joe Maddon said. The Rays nearly squandered an early six-run lead, and sent Miami to its sixth straight loss. Johnson, who has 24 RBIs in 21 games this month, also doubled, singled and stole a base. He matched his career highs for RBIs and hits during his eighth multihomer game, and first since May 30, 2011, against the Marlins while with Arizona. "I feel good and I feel confident," Johnson said. "Youre always searching for something thats going to let you feel confident and you try to just roll with it. It could be daily, weekly. Thats the way baseball is. Im not going to sit here and try to figure it out." Johnson homered off rookie Jose Fernandez (2-3) in a six-run second inning. He then broke open the game by hitting his 10th home run of the season in the eighth against A.J. Ramos. The win made the Rays even with the Marlins at 43-43 in the all-time interleague series. Jake Odorizzi, making his second start for the Rays, gave up eight hits and six runs and couldnt get through the fifth inning to qualify for the win. "Its very frustrating not to be able to get through the fifth inning when the team gets you six runs," he said. "The offence was awesome today, the bullpen was phenomenal. Kelly did an awesome job today. Its just frustrating to know that I wasnt anywhere near my best stuff." Jake McGee (2-2) got the victory after pitching two scoreless innings of relief. The 20-year-old Fernandez, pitching across the bay from where he pitched in high school in Tampa two years ago, pitched 3 1-3 innings, giving up five hits, three walks and four earned runs while striking out six. After fanning three Rays in the first inning, Fernandez walked the first two batters in the second, then hit Desmond Jennings with a pitch. Jose Molina drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly. Yunel Escobar drove in another run with the Rays first hit, and after Ben Zobrist reached on an error, Johnson made it 6-0 with his home run. "I wasnt nervous. I was a little pumped up. I was trying to do a little too much, maybe," Fernandez said. "Youre going to have rough games and youre going to have good days. So try to get it more good than bad." The Marlins, who came into the game with a .221 team batting average, collected 10 hits in the first five innings, including Justin Ruggianos eighth home run. Greg Dobbs had two hits and drove in two runs for the Marlins, who had cut Tampa Bays early six-run margin to one before Johnson hit his second homer. "We never lost the lead. That was important to us," said Maddon, who has seen his starting pitchers and bullpen give away several big leads this season. "Thats the one thing I always try to look at. Once youve lost the lead or even if it gets tied, that puts it back in their corner a little bit, so I thought Jake (McGee) was really important. "We keep making this way more dramatic than it needs to be," he said. NOTES: Tampa Bay LHP David Price (left triceps strain) resumed playing catch, making 35 throws before the game. ...

Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach.CHASKA, Minn. -- There are plenty of Arnold Palmer stories from the Ryder Cup, but this specific one took place the night before the opening session of the 1975 edition. Palmer was serving as United States captain that year for the second time, his first without also playing.In those days, it wasnt whether the U.S. team would win -- the only question was by how much. That night, Palmer gathered his players together, looked each one of them in the eye, and declared his expectations for the week.I dont want them, he said of the Great Britain and Ireland opposition, to make a point.Though his team didnt pitch a shutout that week, the convincing 21-11 victory serves as just part of Palmers legacy in the biennial contest.He was 2-0 as a captain, and his team never lost in a half-dozen appearances as a player. His 22 match victories remain the most in U.S. history. He is tied for the most points in singles matches and the most points in foursomes and is a half-point from also tying for the most in four-ball matches.The event was right up his alley. Competition, camaraderie, celebration -- he thrived on all of it.Palmer died on the eve of this weeks Ryder Cup, which is fitting, in a way. It gives the golf world a chance to celebrate him in an atmosphere that he wouldve cherished.It also gives the American team an opportunity to honor the icon by finishing this week the only way he ever knew -- with a victory.The guys in red, white and blue shouldnt require any extra inspiration. Losses in three straight Ryder Cups and six of the last seven should provide all the proverbial kick-in-the-butt theyd ever need. They shouldve already been jonesing to win this thing for just the second time this century.If they needed just a little more incentive, though, now they have it in a new rallying cry.Win one for The King.This is hardly an original concept. Four years ago, the European team mounted a brilliant come-from-behind victory on Sunday afternoon at Medinah, buoyed by the spirit of the late Seve Ballesteros, whose likeness pervaded the teams wardrobe and locker room.All the images of Seve around the clubhouse, the locker room and things like that, kept that spirit alive, said 2012 European captain Jose Maria Olazabal, himself a Ballesteros disciple. I think these guys did it also for him.Cannt you just see it now? An American team infused by the spirit of Arnie playing fearless, swashbuckling, aggressive golf, just as he wouldve done? Tears streaming down the faces of every U.dddddddddddd. player Sunday evening as they understand this wasnt just a win for themselves or their country or even the greater good of whats in danger of becoming a one-sided competition, but for their collective hero?It would be a win for the ages, as magical and mystical as Europes triumph for their beloved Seve.Its going to be tough to do, but we are definitely going to draw inspiration from his spirits, explained U.S. captain Davis Love III. We already had pictures of him in our locker room and team room, and well add a few more. Hell be with us forever.Palmers memory will undeniably serve as an underlying theme throughout this week. Less than 24 hours after his death on Sunday, officials were still contemplating exactly how hell be honored, but at the very least, we can expect a video commemoration, a moment of silence, and pins worn by players featuring his logo.Love was quick to point out that none of these honorariums will be specific to the U.S. team; rather, each squad will join together in sharing this tribute.Thats classy and sportsmanlike and exactly the way it should be, but it doesnt mean the two teams should be equally invigorated by Palmers spirit.Just as Ballesteros, who was an integral part -- the most integral part -- of bringing these two sides closer together competitively, served as greater inspiration posthumously for his counterparts than his opponents, so too should Palmers death further motivate his own countrymen.If Palmer couldve given one last fiery speech to an American team, he wouldnt have implored them to try their best. He wouldnt have simply asked for some good swings and decent putts. He probably wouldnt have even settled for pleading for them to win.No, the man who won twice as a captain and six times as a player, without ever losing, would gather them together, look each player in the eye, and declare his expectations for the week.I dont want them, hed say, to make a point.If that doesnt inspire the Americans, nothing will.
