PORTLAND, Ore. -- Ty Rattie scored his league-leading 17th goal of the Western Hockey League playoffs with 8:39 left in regulation to break a tie game and propel the Portland Winterhawks to a 3-1 victory over the Tri-City Americans. With the victory, Portland has opened a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference final. After Rattie scored off a deflected shot by Joseph Morrow, Brad Ross sealed the game with an empty-net goal from his defensive zone with 34 seconds remaining. Tri-City opened the scoring at 1:16 of the first period with their sixth power-play goal of the series. Patrick Hollands point shot rattled the crossbar, then the puck fell to Adam Hughesman, who buried the rebound for his eighth post-season goal. Portland tied the game at 10:40 of the second period when Marcel Noebels stole the puck from the Americans Patrick Holland and beat Tri-City goaltender Ty Rimmer with a wrist shot for his fourth goal of the playoffs. Tri-City had outshot Portland 33-27 through two periods, but the Winterhawks took control of the game of the third, getting 20 shots on net to the Americans six. Mac Carruth stopped 38 of 39 shots to earn the win for Portland, while Rimmer made 44 saves in defeat. Both teams finished 1-for-6 on the power play. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .

Naw, he didnt do that because the Philadelphia Phillies have been stuck in reverse lately. Its a quirk of his, something he started in the minors to stay loose and visualize positive results. Lee struck out 10 while outdueling Cy Young contender R.A. Dickey, and the Phillies regained their winning touch by beating the New York Mets 3-1 Monday night. "He controlled the game, he was that good," Philadelphia manager Charlie Manuel said. Jimmy Rollins homered with the help of video replay and Domonic Brown also hit a solo shot off Dickey (18-6). The Phillies pulled within 3 1/2 games of idle St. Louis for the second NL wild-card spot, though other clubs are also in their path. "It was a big win. Were kind of running out of games," Lee said. "Three or four teams ahead of us that weve got to catch and pass. Definitely not where we want to be." Philadelphia had lost three of four at last-place Houston before arriving at Citi Field, where visiting teams have feasted. The Mets have dropped nine of 10 overall, and fell to 4-22 at home since the All-Star break. "We bounced back tonight," Manuel said. "You get that kind of pitching, its not that hard." Lee (6-7) turned in his fifth straight sharp start, winning four of them, and allowed seven hits over eight innings. He was in control, as always, with one walk. He has gone 14 consecutive outings with no more than one free pass. The 33-year-old lefty trotted to the mound to start his innings, and often was the first Phillies player to take his position. Thats when hed go through his unusual routine, making phantom pitches toward second base. "In the minors, I usually was the first person out there and thats when I started doing it," he said. "Now, I do it all the time. Its my thing." Lee, who earned his elusive first victory of the season on July 4 at Citi Field, became the latest pitcher to shut down the Mets in their own ballpark. New York has scored three runs or fewer in a team-record 14 straight home games. "The way that he has been throwing the last month, month and a half, you knew it was probably going
