BOSTON -- Pitching, patience and the Atlanta Braves are bringing the Boston Red Sox back from their longest losing streak in 20 years. Authentic Dmitrij Jaskin Jersey . The defending World Series champions hope that three straight wins after 10 consecutive losses are just the start of their resurgence. John Lackey pitched neatly into the seventh inning and the Red Sox beat the Braves for the third straight day, 4-0 Wednesday night. "Were not looking too far ahead," Lackey said. "You cant make up 10 games in one day. Youve just got to keep grinding at it." On Tuesday night, the Red Sox won 6-3 in Atlanta as Jon Lester allowed three runs in six innings and broke a two-game personal losing streak. Lackey (6-3) got his turn and kept his stingy season going, giving up eight hits and no walks while striking out nine in 6 1-3 innings. He has permitted two runs or less in eight of his 12 starts. "Im going out there and trying to compete, trying to pitch the best I could every five days, regardless of whats going on," Lackey said. "As a starter, you only get 30-something chances a year, so youve got to respect those and take full advantage of them." The Red Sox honoured Manny Ramirez, Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling and other members of their 2004 World Series championship team before the game then put on another winning performance at Fenway Park. Jackie Bradley Jr., A.J. Pierzynski and Jonny Gomes each had had two hits and an RBI as the Red Sox extended their mastery over the Braves. Boston is 18-6 since 2005 against Atlanta. Lackeys performance, "on the heels of what weve come off of (was) much needed," Boston manager John Farrell said. "When you look at the last two nights, both John Lackey and Jon Lester have done an excellent job of getting deep in the game." Lackey combined with three relievers for Bostons first shutout of the season. He allowed more than one runner in just two innings and just one past second. "If you throw strikes, you have a tendency to get any hitters aggressive and you can expand" the strike zone, Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We got nine hits, left all kinds of people on base. We just couldnt get that next one." Gavin Floyd (0-2) gave up two runs in five innings and took his first career loss against the Red Sox after seven wins. He is 3-1 at Fenway Park. Boston went ahead 1-0 in the second inning when Gomes led off with a single and kept going to second on a throwing error by shortstop Ramiro Pena. "You just have to look past those things when those things happen and hope things will turn around," Floyd said. They didnt. Gomes took third on a wild pitch before Grady Sizemore walked, and scored when Daniel Nava grounded into a double play. The Red Sox added a run in the third on a double by Xander Bogaerts, one of his three hits, and singles by David Ortiz and Pierzynski. Boston made it 3-0 in the sixth against Alex Wood when Gomes walked, took second on a single by Sizemore and scored on a double by Bradley. In Tuesday nights win, Bradley hit a two-run single in a four-run seventh when Boston took the lead. The Red Sox reached Wood for another run in the seventh on an RBI single by Gomes. In each of his first six innings, Lackey had at least one strikeout and didnt allow a runner past second. He retired the first hitter in the seventh then allowed singles to Tommy La Stella and Pena that put runners at first and third. Lackey left after throwing 105 pitches. Chris Capuano retired Jason Heyward on a groundout as the runners advanced to second and third. Heywards bat broke and Capuano fell on his back as he just avoided being hit by a broke piece. Capuano walked B.J. Upton, loading the bases, before getting Freddie Freeman to end the threat with a grounder. Junichi Tazawa and Craig Breslow completed the victory with one scoreless inning each.

Allardyce to be England boss SSN HQ understands that Sam Allardyce is to be the next England manager. But who are the three men on the FA panel that picked the new man, and what were they looking for? Here, we take a look... Who will pick the new boss?FA chief executive Martin Glenn, FA technical director Dan Ashworth and FA vice-chairman David Gill.What are their credentials?Glenn admitted that he was not a football expert during a press conference alongside Hodgson last month, but has been in his role at the FA since March of last year.He spent most of his career as a branding expert in advertising before joining the FA - hiring Gary Lineker as the face of Walkers crisps in 1992.

He spent time as a non-executive director at Leicester City from 2002 to 2006, but he has never appointed a manager before.He has also overseen the use of a number of ex-England players including Joe Cole, Phil Neville, Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard getting involved in Englands younger representative sides.Ashworth, meanwhile, joined the FA in 2012 where he rose to his current role. He came to prominence during his time at West Brom, where he worked alongside Hodgson - with the former England boss playing a key role in bringing Ashworth to the FA. Dan Ashworth is part of the FAs three-man panel deciding the new boss He helped with the appointments of Roberto Di Matteo, Hodgson and Steve Clarke at The Hawthorns, while he also oversaw the appointment of Mark Sampson to manage the England womens side, who finished third at last summers World Cup.He was released by Norwich as a teenager having failed to make it as a defender, but does hold a coaching Pro Licence.

Glenn recently confirmed they were not after a short-term solution.The possibility of the FA appointing a foreign boss for the third time was opened up when Glenn declared that they want the best person for thhe job regardless of nationality. Authentic Jakub Vrana Jersey. Steve Bruce (left) was also in the England frame Whatever the country of origin, Glenn was keen to stress the importance of the England manager liaising with all age-groups in order to improve English football.For Ashworth, that is likely to mean buying into the notion of England DNA - the concept he launched in 2014 and was described at the time as the start point for the creation of a world-class approach of elite player development leading to winning England teams.Was anyone else involved?Lots of people. Glenn is believed to have taken the initiative in canvassing the views of a number of former England players in order to gain a better understanding of the reasons for Englands perceived under-performance in major tournaments. Greg Dykes last act as FA chairman will be to ratify the new appointment Who is on this board?There are 12 people on the FAs board. As well as Glenn and Gill, there is chairman Greg Dyke (who stands down after Thursdays meeting) and the National Game representatives Barry Bright, Roger Burden, Jack Pearce and Mervyn Leggett.The Professional Game representatives are Ian Lenegan, Peter McCormick and Jeremy Moxey, while independent non-executive directors Roger Devlin and Heather Rabbatts are involved too.Although Glenn, Ashworth and Gill recommend their choice of England manager, it is the entire board that ratifies that decision. Glenn says the FA are looking for a long-term England manager to replace Hodgson Who was on the shortlist?Jurgen Klinsmann was the focus of considerable speculation and quickly became the bookmakers favourite for the job. However, it soon emerged that two Englishmen had been interviewed for the role - Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce and Hulls Steve Bruce.Allardyce visited Gills Cheshire home and met with all three of the FA panel, while Hull confirmed earlier in the week that Bruce had held informal discussions over the job.What happens next?Sunderland and Hull both expressed a desire for the decision to be made quickly, with the former describing the speculation as extremely damaging and thus putting the FA under pressure to finalise their plans. Thursdays meeting with the 12-man board was the obvious time for the panel to present their decision.With contract details to be finalised, a formal announcement may take a little longer. However, it seems certain that the identity of Englands next manager will be officially confirmed very soon.
