ASPEN, Colo. - Vincent Gagnier attempted something different than he normally would have and wound up claiming gold on Saturday in the ski big air event at the Winter X Games.The Victoriaville, Que. native scored 47 points on his best run and 44 on his second best for a combined top score of 91 points.I did two tricks that I never tried before and they both worked out, said Gagnier. Since 1999 when I first watched the X Games, Ive been wanting to do this. Its awesome, it is everything. It is the biggest contest in skiing. The ultimate goal. The Olympics are not the goal, this is it.Bobby Brown of the United States finished second with 82 points and Switzerlands Elias Ambuhl took bronze.Earlier, Olympic gold medallist Dara Howell of Huntsville, Ont., won bronze in slopestyle skiing.Howell scored 82.00 points on her third run to win the third X Games medal of her career, complimenting her bronze-medal finishes from 2013 and 2012. Swedens Emma Dahltstrom took gold with 90.33 points while American Keri Herman placed second with 86.66.My skiing was good today even though I didnt have the greatest sets of training (before the competition), said Howell. I think I put a lot of pressure on myself. I went into practice this morning with an open mind and it started to click. It felt like gold to me to get that third-place medal.Nikki Blackall of Barrie, Ont., finished fifth while Anouk Purnell-Faniel of Quebec City came in sixth.On the mens side, Alex Bellemare of Saint-Boniface, Que., took bronze with 85.66 points. American Nick Goepper finished first with 93.66 and his teammate, Joss Christensen, placed second with 90.66.Bellamares podium finish marked the biggest win of his career and came in only his second X Games. He placed fourth at his only other appearance in 2013.It was such a relief when I won bronze, said Bellemare, who missed last years competition due to injury. I knew I was in third place and I just had to wait it out until everyone finished their run. Im thrilled with how things turned out. I was really focused on my rails today. They are my specialty and I nailed them.I had a good day overall and am really happy with my performance. Its my best result to date.Quebec Citys Alex Beaulieu-Marchand was scheduled to compete in the eight-man final, but pulled out due to injury. He finished ninth overall. Evan McEachran of Oakville, Ont., the youngest member of the Canadian slopestyle team at 17-years-old, finished in 14th place.

Seattle had a six-run outburst in an inning that included three Texas errors and an overturned call that led to the ejection of Rangers manager Ron Washington during the Mariners 7-1 victory Monday night. Seattle had the bases loaded in the sixth, already with four runs in, when Brad Miller hit a comebacker. Relief pitcher Pedro Figueroa threw home, and umpire Paul Schrieber initially ruled a forceout even though catcher J.P. Arencibia bobbled the ball on a transfer without dropping it or making a throw. McClendon challenged, and the call was reversed after a replay review of 3 minutes, 31 seconds. That erased the out and gave Seattle another run. "I thought it was a clear violation of the rules," McClendon said. "It was an impactful play." Asked his feeling on the transfer rule, which is being enforced more closely with expanded replay this season, the manager responded, "I wish it would all go away, but it is what it is, and we just have to deal with it." Arencibia, charged with an error, said he was off the plate before losing control of the ball. "I think thats something that baseball needs to clean up because there are a lot of plays that have happened this year that are outs and giving teams extra outs," Arencibia said. "I dont think its baseball. Outfielders who have caught the ball and run four steps after they catch it, run into the wall and turn and throw the ball in and it falls out, and automatically safe. It doesnt make sense." Roenis Elias (1-1) allowed one run and struck out five over 6 2-3 innings for his first major league victory. The left-hander, who defected from Cuba to Mexico in 2010, has a 2.16 ERA in three career starts. "I came here to make it to the big leagues. I knew I could pitch in the big leagues," Elias said through a translator. "I was throwing my pitches like I wanted. The curveball I threw today is what I normally throw." The Mariners went ahead to stay on Mike Zuninos solo homer in the fifth off Colby Lewis (0-1), who made his first big league start inn 21 months after elbow and hip operations.dddddddddddd Zunino added an RBI single in that wild sixth that started with Robinson Canos leadoff single. Cano scored on Michael Saunders triple to left-centre -- a ball that centre fielder Leonys Martin bobbled without getting charged with an error. Kyle Seager followed with an RBI single that chased Lewis, and then things got interesting. Dustin Ackley and Zunino had consecutive RBI singles after Arencibia couldnt pull in a foul ball before reaching out and teetering over a camera-well railing. Mix in two fielding errors, and the bases were loaded. Washington immediately came out to argue after the overturned call and was ejected by crew chief Ted Barrett because managers arent allowed to argue replay rulings. Washingtons ejection came a night after Boston manager John Farrell became the first big league skipper tossed under those circumstances this season. "It was obvious he caught the ball, the runner was at least 9 or 10 feet from home plate, making his move away from home plate so he dont have contact, you go to get the ball and he drops it," Washington said. "Im all for the review, but still that dont mean you have to agree with some of the calls that go on because of review." Umpires in New York confirmed the play was overturned because Arencibia never had secure possession while transferring the ball from his glove to his hand. Lewis made his first major league start since July 18, 2012, allowing four runs (three earned) over 5 1-3 innings. He struck out four and walked one. The 34-year-old Lewis had right hip resurfacing surgery last August. He is the first known major league pitcher to come back after the procedure to remove bone spurs without a full hip replacement. "Id like to thank the Texas Rangers and the organization for giving me an opportunity tonight. It wouldnt have meant as much for me to get back out there without having this uniform on," Lewis said. "Overall, I felt great. Everything was really, really good." NOTES: Seattle had gone 21 consecutive innings without a run before Zuninos third homer. ... Texas scored a single run for the third time in four games -- the others were 1-0 victories over Houston. ' ' '
