SAN FRANCISCO -- Colin Kaepernick let his guard down just enough to razz Michael Crabtree about not scoring on a flashy 60-yard catch and run in his season debut. At last, Kaepernick has his receiving corps intact, just in time for the stretch run. Crabtrees return opened up the field all the more for Anquan Boldin -- not to mention Vernon Davis and his high-hurdle show -- in the San Francisco 49ers 23-13 victory against St. Louis on Sunday. Boldin caught nine passes from Kaepernick, Crabtree made his long-awaited debut six months after Achilles tendon surgery, and the 49ers pressured the Rams defence from every angle. Next up: NFC West nemesis Seattle in a week at Candlestick Park. "Were very eager," safety Donte Whitner said. "They embarrassed us last time." Kaepernick went 19 of 28 for 275 yards and Frank Gore ran for a 3-yard touchdown as the reigning NFC champion Niners (8-4) bsted their position in the playoff picture. Crabtree had that 60-yard catch, while Davis hurdled into the end zone on a 17-yard touchdown reception. "I wish I would have scored," Crabtree said. "I was supposed to take that to the house." With Hall of Famer Jerry Rice in the house, Boldin had six receptions in the first half on the way to his second-most productive game of the year behind his 13-catch performance in the season opener against Green Bay. He, t, teased Crabtree about not getting into the end zone. "We give him a pass on that one; Thanksgiving was this week," Boldin quipped. Crabtree, San Franciscos leading wide receiver during last seasons Super Bowl run, had two catches. Just having him on the field kept the St. Louis defence from focusing all its attention on Boldin and Davis. Davis displayed his athleticism with a new signature move, and did so not once but twice: a high hurdle over defenders. He led with his right ft while leaping over safety Rodney McLeod in the first half, then again to reach the end zone on his team-leading 10th touchdown catch. Davis also was tackled by T.J. McDonald with a prolonged, painful grab to his crotch. That was a first in his career. "I was hurting," Davis said. Phil Dawson kicked three field goals, and San Franciscos swarming defence made things tough on Kellen Clemens all day. The Rams managed only 73 total yards in the first half. Clemens went 19 of 37 for 218 yards with a late TD pass in a dismal afternn for the Rams (5-7), who were trying for their first three-game winning streak of the season. "There were some plays out there that we had opportunities to make which would have gotten us into a little bit of a better rhythm offensively," Clemens said. "We didnt make them." A year after the teams left Candlestick with a 24-24 tie, the 49ers methodically tk care that it didnt happen again. They made it consecutive commanding victories in a short week following a 27-6 win at Washington on Monday night that snapped a two-game skid. "All the pressure, all the high stakes this time of the year, I thought our guys answered the bell on that," coach Jim Harbaugh said. While Kaepernick was sacked four times, Robert Quinn and the opportunistic Rams defence failed to make the game-changing plays it had the past two weeks -- even when 49ers left tackle Joe Staley was lost to a right knee injury early in the game. The St. Louis defensive line had scored touchdowns in each of the past two games. The Rams thwarted drives with costly penalties, settling for a 43-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein just before halftime in their best drive of the half. Zuerlein kicked a 34-yarder in the third quarter. After a debated 15-yard personal foul penalty on Jo-Lonn Dunbar when he ran into a sliding Kaepernick, the quarterback completed a 23-yard pass to Davis. Dawson kicked a 32-yard field goal. He added a 43-yarder early in the second period, then a 24-yard field goal in the third. The Rams managed 11 total yards in the first quarter and 73 in the first half. The 49ers held the Rams in check before the second-team defence surrendered Brian Quicks 3-yard touchdown catch with 18 seconds remaining. Crabtree had a pair of penalties in San Franciscos opening series, an illegal block to the back and an offensive pass interference. "I had to get those jitters out," he said. NOTES: 49ers TE Vance McDonald injured an ankle in the first quarter. ... St. Louis lost left tackle Jake Long late in the third quarter to a concussion after he collided into running back Zac Stacy, who played after dealing with concussion-like symptoms following a win against the Bears.

Jimmy Howard made 44 saves and Henrik Zetterberg scored two goals, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.PHILADELPHIA -- Jimmy Rollins got some extra motivation in the 10th inning from a fan. Rollins homered with two outs in the 10th inning Saturday night, and the Philadelphia Phillies overcame two home runs by Giancarlo Stanton to beat the Miami Marlins 5-4. Rollins drove a 2-2 pitch from Dan Jennings (0-1) into the seats in left. It was the 201st career homer for Rollins, but just the second game ender of his career. The first came June 23, 2010, against Cleveland. Rollins said he was very upset with a comment directed toward him by a fan sitting near the home teams dugout during his final at-bat. "There was some fan in the stands popping off," Rollins said. "He was right behind our dugout, close enough to yell and piss me off, honestly. It was something pretty ignorant, but it worked." After hitting the ball, Rollins turned and yelled in the fans direction. Rollins said he told the fan to shut up, using an abbreviated expletive. "I was locked and had some aggression. It just worked out I was able to tell him," Rollins said. B.J. Rosenberg (1-0) pitched a scoreless 10th for the victory. Rollins finished with three hits and hot-hitting Chase Utley had two doubles and drove in a run for Philadelphia, which has won 12 of 15 against the Marlins. Through nine games, Utley is batting .500 with five doubles and eight RBIs. Tony Gwynn Jr., starting in centre and leading off for the second straight day in place of Ben Revere (sore ribs), had a pair of hits. Stanton finished with three hits and three RBIs for the Marlins. His first homer, measured at 470 feet, cleared the seats in left-centre and landed on Ashburn Alley -- a popular outfield concessions spot. The fifth-inning solo drive off Jonathan Pettibone pulled Miami to 4-2. "I dont want to be a part of it, but you just go along with it," Pettibone said. Stanton tied it at 4 in the seventh when he drilled reliever Justin De Fratus first offering to deep left for a two-run shot. It was the 10th two-homer game for Stanton. Stanton was due to bat second in the 11th if the game continued. "We had Giancarlo coming up and that wasnt a gd thing," Rollins said. Said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg, "The first two swings it lked like he had one thing in mind and that was not to play any more extra innings." Rollins RBI single and Utleyss run-scoring double gave Philadelphia a 2-0 lead after one.dddddddddddd The Marlins got a run back in the second and would have scored at least two more if not for replay. Second base umpire Gary Cederstrom called Marcell Ozuna safe at second, saying that Ozuna beat shortstop Rollins to the bag on a forceout after Utley ranged right and threw to Rollins on Stantons grounder up the middle. But Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg challenged and, after a 2 minute, 27 seconds delay, umpires overturned the call. Replays showed that Rollins touched the bag before Ozuna for the final out. "It really cost us a couple of runs," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. Adeiny Hechavarria had scored, Christian Yelich likely would have scored and the Marlins then wouldve had runners on first and second with two outs. "Normally that would be a huge play in the game," Sandberg said. "Im glad it went in our favour. It was a successful challenge and big in that moment." Miami did get some gd fortune in the inning as Ryan Howard dropped Rollins throw to first on Ozunas grounder to shortstop that wouldve been the final out. Jarrod Saltalamacchia scored from third on Howards error. The Phillies went ahead 4-1 in the third on Utleys double and Howards single. Pettibone, activated from Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the game, allowed two runs -- one earned -- on eight hits in five innings in his season debut. Pettibone is filling in until left-hander Cole Hamels (left biceps tendinitis) returns to the rotation. Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi went 6 1-3 innings, giving up four runs on seven hits while striking out five and walking none. NOTES: Hamels pitched six strong innings in a rehab start for Class-A Clearwater on Saturday night, giving up one run on six hits with six strikeouts and no walks. . Revere grounded out pinch-hitting in the 10th. . In order to activate Pettibone, the Phillies sent outright right-hander Brad Lincoln Triple-A Lehigh Valley. . Saturday marked the 10th anniversary of the opening of Citizens Bank Park on April 12, 2004. . Miamis Derek Dietrich was a late scratch from the lineup due to lower back tightness. Jeff Baker started at second for him. . The three-game series concludes at 15 Sunday when Philadelphia RHP Kyle Kendrick (0-1, 3.75) faces Marlins RHP Henderson Alvarez (0-2, 4.15). ' ' '
