Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork. Morgan Burnett Jersey .com) - Hoping to recover from four consecutive losses, the Marquette Golden Eagles will entertain the 25th-ranked Butler Bulldogs in a Big East Conference showdown at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday. The recent skid - all to Big East competition - has dropped Marquette down to 2-6 in league play this season. The 10-10 Golden Eagles are coming off a recent defeat at the hands of Seton Hall, 80-70, at home, where Marquette is 8-4 on the year. Butler is on the upswing, jumping into the Top-25 earlier in the week. The Bulldogs have won two straight decisions, and four of their last five altogether. Butler took down Creighton (64-61) and Seton Hall (77-57) in the teams last two outings to improve to 5-3 in Big East play. Marquette holds the advantage in the all-time series, 16-13, as these two teams will meet one other time later this season in Indianapolis. The sides split the two-game season series a year ago. Butler faced a tough test as the team hosted the then-24th ranked Seton Hall Pirates on Sunday, but it was the Bulldogs that came out and proved why they should be the ones ranked. Butler connected on 49.1 percent of its shots from the floor, and held the Pirates to just 36.7 percent shooting, which included a 4-of-24 mark from 3-point range. Andrew Chrabascz led the charge for the Bulldogs with 16 points, while Kellen Dunham scored 15 points, Roosevelt Jones added 12 and seven rebounds, Alex Barlow tallied 11 points with eight assists and six boards, and Kelan Martin came off the bench to net 10 points to round out the impressive offensive performance for Butler. Dunham currently leads Butler and ranks fourth in the Big East in scoring, netting 16.1 ppg this season on 43.9 percent shooting from the floor. The big man Jones has been a well-rounded surprise for the Bulldogs this season, averaging 13.2 ppg, with a team-leading 79 assists and a second-best 6.0 rpg mark. Chrabascz rounds out a trio of double-digit scorers for Butler at 10.0 ppg. Kameron Woods is the teams best rebounder, and ranks second in the Big East with 9.0 boards per outing. The Bulldogs as a unit are scoring 70.7 ppg, and are holding opponents to a league-best 60.1 ppg this season. Marquette connected on 42.4 percent of its shots from the floor in Wednesday nights contest against Seton Hall, but the Golden Eagles also watched and were seemingly powerless to stop a Pirates team that buried 13-of-26 from 3- point range, and a torrid scoring pace set by Sterling Gibbs. Matt Carlino did the best he could to keep his Eagles in the game, finishing with a team-best 16 points, adding in six rebounds and five assists. Sandy Cohen III added 11 points in the loss, while Juan Anderson and Derrick Wilson each chipped in with 10 points. Wilson dished out eight assists and had seven rebounds in the losing effort. Carlino is the only Marquette player to have started all 20 games this season for the Golden Eagles, and its clear why. The transfer guard from BYU is leading the charge in terms of scoring this season at 14.7 ppg with a team- best 68 assists and 29 steals. Duane Wilson (11.7 ppg) and Luke Fischer (10.2 ppg in 12 games played) round out a trio of double-digit scorers for Marquette this season. The Golden Eagles rank second to last, however, in the Big East in terms of scoring offense, with a 68.1 ppg clip. The team is also in the bottom portion of the league rankings in terms of scoring defense, allowing opponents to net 65.8 ppg this season. Morgan Burnett Steelers Jersey .

They didnt treat New York starter Vidal Nuno nearly so nicely. Derek Norris and Coco Crisp hit early three-run homers to back a strong start by Jesse Chavez, and the As beat the Yankees 10-5 on Sunday. "We obviously made ourselves a little more well-rounded over the last couple years, but whenever were hitting homers were winning," Norris said. "Thats just the bottom line. Thats what we did today." The As had been held to one run or fewer in four of their previous nine games before taking a 10-0 lead in four innings. Yoenis Cespedes drove in two runs and Josh Donaldson snapped an 0-for-33 slump with an RBI single. Chavez (6-4) carried a shutout into the sixth. With the second-best record in the majors behind San Francisco, the As have won three of four and are off to their best start in nearly 25 years. "Its good to see," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of his clubs power surge. "We havent been swinging the bat as well as we were earlier, certainly on the power portion of it. But two big three-run homers today gets you off to a good start." Norris, who matched his career high with three hits, homered in the first and Crisp connected in the second off Nuno (1-3). Carlos Beltran hit his first home run for the Yankees since coming off the disabled list. But the All-Star veteran also was called out on a strange play in the eighth inning when he lost track of the outs and wandered away from first base. With one out in the eighth and the As ahead 10-3, Beltran grounded into a forceout at second. He trotted toward New Yorks first-base dugout and got halfway there, then turned around and headed back toward the bag -- Beltran was tagged in foul ground. Umpire Dan Iassogna made the call and Yankees manager Joe Girardi came onto the field for a brief discussion. By rule 7.08, Beltran was out for "abandoning" the base. "I thought theree were two outs," Beltran said in the Yankees quiet clubhouse. Terrell Edmunds Steelers Jersey. "It was too late to go back." Chavez blanked the Yankees until Derek Jeter doubled in the sixth and scored on Mark Teixeiras two-out single. Oaklands right-hander was stellar otherwise, allowing five hits over six innings with four strikeouts. "The big key is not walking anybody," Chavez said. "Today, even if I did go to a full count I didnt want to give in." Beltran homered off reliever Ryan Cook in the seventh. Brett Gardner also homered for New York, a two-run shot in the ninth. The Yankees put two more runners on base after that against struggling reliever Jim Johnson, and Luke Gregerson came on for the last out. Jeter played his last scheduled game at the Coliseum and received a lengthy ovation from the sold-out crowd that included several thousand fans decked out in Yankees jerseys. The retiring shortstop was given a bottle of Northern California wine during a pregame ceremony and received a financial donation from the As for his Turn 2 Foundation. It was at the Coliseum, in fact, where Jeter made one of the most memorable plays of his career. His backhanded flip to the plate helped save the Yankees in the 2001 playoffs. Jeter hit a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the seventh before being replaced by Brendan Ryan in the bottom half of the inning. Nuno, who had allowed only three earned runs total over his previous two outings, allowed eight runs and eight hits in three-plus innings. NOTES: Norris also hit a three-run home run on Mothers Day. ... The 10 runs were the As most against the Yankees since 2007 and helped them snap out of a weeklong power slump. Oakland had hit only one home run over its previous five games. ... As OF Josh Reddick (hyperextended knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday. ...
