OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders keep finding new ways to win late in games, while the San Diego Chargers somehow manage to find even more painful ways to lose.Derek Carr threw a go-ahead 21-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on a fourth-and-2 gamble and the Raiders survived when the Chargers botched a potential tying kick late in a 34-31 win Sunday.Sometimes you just have to find ways to win and get it done at the end, Carr said. It would be nice if we didnt have to do all the stress and drama at the end. That would be nice.After using a late 2-point conversion to win the opener, stopping a late Tennessee drive in a Week 3 win and using a late score and defensive stop to beat Baltimore last week, the Raiders (4-1) survived against the Chargers (1-4) to post their first three-game winning streak in five years.Philip Rivers threw his fourth TD pass of the game to cut a 10-point lead to three midway through the fourth and then drove San Diego down the field late. But after Melvin Gordon was held to 1 yard on third-and-2, coach Mike McCoy opted for a 36-yard field goal.Mike Windts snap was on target, but rkie Drew Kaser couldnt get down the hold and the Chargers never got a chance at the tie.You cant make this stuff up, Rivers said. You think, `Is there any other way we can find a way to do this?The Chargers had already lost three games they led at the two-minute warning, blowing a 21-point lead to Kansas City and a 13-point fourth-quarter advantage last week versus New Orleans.Then came the latest loss that included four turnovers and the botched kick, leading to a 10th straight division loss.Just when you think youve seen it all, something like that happens, McCoy said.CPER SCORES: Raiders receiver Amari Cper hadnt scored a touchdown in four games before breaking through against the Chargers. He scored on a 64-yard pass from Carr in the third quarter and added a 2-point conversion after Crabtrees TD. Cper also nearly had three more scores, but couldnt get both feet down inbounds on two throws into the end zone and was unable to re-establish himself after being interfered with on a third play.First one is always the hardest, no matter what it is, Carr said. Im just happy for him because he works his tail off.BOSAS DEBUT: Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa made an impressive debut after missing training camp during a nasty contract dispute and sitting out the first four games with a hamstring injury. He came in on the second drive and had a sack and a tackle for loss. He added a second sack in the fourth quarter.It felt pretty natural, Bosa said. Its nice to get the butterflies out because I was pretty nervous coming into this game.BIG PLAY RKIE: First-round pick Karl Joseph, who started the season on the bench in Oakland, has made a big impact since becoming a starter in Week 3. He intercepted a pass from Rivers late in the first half to set up a field goal and then recovered a fumble by Gordon to set up Crabtrees TD.LEAKY D: Despite the win, the Raiders allowed more than 400 yards for the fourth time in five games. Big plays were the problem in this game as the Chargers had three passes go for at least 50 yards.Were not even close to the standard we need to be at, linebacker Bruce Irvin said. Whatd we give up today, 400 yards or something? Thats bad. Happy about the win, but Im not in a gd md about how we performed.GIVE IT AWAY: After committing turnovers on the final three drives in last weeks loss to New Orleans , the Chargers picked up where they left off. Antonio Gates was stripped on San Diegos first drive and lost a fumble with the Chargers in position to score. Rivers then was intercepted by Sean Smith on a deep pass on the Chargers next play from scrimmage. Rivers threw another interception late in the half, giving San Diego six turnovers in eight possessions. San Diego committed a fourth turnover late in the third quarter when Gordon fumbled, setting up Oaklands go-ahead score.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Bobby Clarke Flyers Jersey . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama.

Dave Schultz Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. ST. LOUIS -- Jeff Samardzija hopes his traditional June swn is a thing of the past. Samardzija picked up first career win as a starter in his most unlucky month, tossing 8 1-3 strong innings to help the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night. Samardzija (4-7) came into the contest winless in eight June starts -- he was 2-8 with a 7.14 ERA, with both victories coming in relief. "I really want to knock this June bugab," he said. "Ive been working really hard and I like where I am today." Samardzija gave up two runs on seven hits and left with a 4-1 lead. He struck out six and walked one for his first win since May 27. Ryan Sweeney and Cody Ransom hit back-to-back homers in a four-run first as Chicago broke a five-game losing streak in St. Louis. The Cubs started fast against Adam Wainwright (10-4) and won for the fourth time in six games. Carlos Beltran hit his team-high 17th homer for the Cardinals, who lost for the third time in five games but still lead the majors with a 45-26 record. Cubs manager Dale Sveum was especially impressed with his starter. "He was as gd as hes been all year against the best offence in baseball," he said. "If you can do that to them, youve had one heck of a game." Said Sweeney: "Watching from centre field, he was unbelievable." "He was keeping hitters off balance and still throwing 96 to 97 (mph) in the ninth inning," he said. Kevin Gregg picked up his 10th save in as many opportunities. He got David Freese to ground into a strange game-ending double play. Pinch-runner Shane Robinson was called out for interference while trying to break up the play at second. Robinson was ruled to have gone out of the way to hinder the relay throw from shortstop Starlin Castro. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny agreed with the call by umpire crew chief Fieldin Culbreth. "He got it right," Matheny said. "Its just frustrating to see the game end like that." The Cardinals cut the lead to 4-2 on an RBI single by Yadier Molina with one out in the ninth. Matt Holliday and Allen Craig singled with one out to chase Samardzija. Gregg, after giving up the hit to Molina, induced Freese to hit a hot shot right at second baseman Darwin Barney, wwho started the double play.dddddddddddd Freese hit into three double plays and also struck out. The Cubs first-inning runs all came after two outs. Nate Schierholtz and Alfonso Soriano hit consecutive singles before Sweeney unloaded with his second homer of the season to make it 3-0. Ransom followed with his eighth homer. "We just got on them early," Sweeney said. "Thankful enough that we did. If you dont get to a guy like that, hell bear down and then you cant score any runs." The Cubs tied a season high with four runs in the first -- they also did it in the first inning of a 10-7 loss to San Francisco on April 14. Wainwright, who was trying to become the majors first 11-game winner, gave up back-to-back homers for the third time in his career. He allowed four earned runs on seven hits over seven innings. Wainwright had won his previous five starts, but has not beaten the Cubs since Sept. 24, 2010. He had given up a total of four first-inning runs over his first 14 starts this season. "It was unforgivable," Wainwright said. "I put my team in a really tough spot." Samardzija never let a runner past second base in the first five innings and was helped out by three double plays. "What else can you ask for?" Samardzija said. "Great defence. And the icing on the cake were those four runs in the first." Beltran homered off the right-field foul pole with two outs in the sixth. Molina went 3 for 3 and leads the NL with a .367 average. NOTES: Schierholtz has hit safely in a career-best 10 straight games. ...
