    ATLANTA -- Only days after being told he would be the Braves starting second baseman for at least two weeks, Tyler Pastornickys season has ended. Eric Ebron Jersey . The Braves announced Friday Pastornicky will have surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Pastornicky injured the knee in a collision with right fielder Jason Heyward on Wednesday night, one day after Atlanta placed second baseman Dan Uggla on the 15-day disabled list so he can have corrective eye surgery. "Not the best timing in the world," Pastornicky said Friday as he tried to smile while leaning on crutches at his locker. Pastornicky said he has been told he should return from Mondays surgery for the start of spring training. The Braves are left with a crisis at second base. Paul Janish, hitting only .083 in 27 games, will make his first start of the season at second base in Friday nights game against Washington. Janish, whose primary position is shortstop, hasnt started at second base since 2011 with the Reds. He has only eight career starts at second base. Infielder Phil Gosselin was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett and was with the team for Friday nights game. When Uggla was scheduled for the Lasik eye surgery, manager Fredi Gonzalez said the team was confident the veteran second baseman would be ready to play in two weeks. If the Braves fear Ugglas recovery could take longer or his adjustment to the surgery could carry into the post-season, general manager Frank Wren might attempt to acquire help at the position before the Aug. 31 waiver trade deadline. "Im almost positive Frank is out there looking through the waiver wire," Gonzalez said. Pastornicky and Heyward collided as both attempted to catch a pop fly. Each player called for the ball. Pastornicky said he couldnt hear Heyward because of the crowd and the fact he also was calling for the ball. "Jason just kind of clipped him, but (Pastornickys) foot was planted when he got spun a little bit," Gonzalez said. Pastornicky said both players called for the ball. "We both got to the ball at the same time," Pastornicky said. "Just one of those freak plays." Gonzalez said Pastornicky, who was making only his fourth start at second base, had not spent enough time at the position to become familiar with Heywards range in right field, including his ability to run in for shallow fly balls. Gosselin, 24, was hitting .277 with two homers and 11 RBIs in 47 games at Gwinnett. Gosselin, a 2010 fifth-round draft pick, began the season at Double-A Mississippi and was promoted to Gwinnett on June 23. Gosselin said he was told Friday morning he would be called up for his debut in the majors. "Its a great feeling, but its almost surreal," Gosselin said. Gosselin said second base has been his primary position this season. He also has played at third base and in the outfield. Colts Jerseys .com) - Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett is active for Sundays matchup with the Miami Dolphins. Quenton Nelson Colts Jersey . Joakim Nordstrom and Garret Ross also scored for Chicago and Corey Crawford made 30 saves. Tomas Tatar scored twice for Red Wings (2-3-0), Jonathan Ericsson added a goal and Gustav Nyquist had three assists.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - St. Louis quarterback Austin Davis had begun mentally preparing for the 2-minute offence if San Francisco took the lead or tied it on a field goal.Wide receiver Kenny Britt opted to say a little prayer that the defence would come through.The Rams did just that, changing their goal-line look for the very possibility Colin Kaepernick might try to take it in himself with the game on the line.St. Louis stuffed him yet again, Kaepernick coughed up the ball and James Laurinaitis recovered to seal the Rams wild 13-10 victory over the 49ers on Sunday.They deserve it, Davis said about the defence. They won us the ballgame today.Defensive end Jo-Lonn Dunbar read Kaepernick perfectly.Jo-Lonn did a great job recognizing sneak, Laurinaitis said. You can just kind of tell by a quarterbacks mannerisms when theyre going to sneak.The play was upheld on review, though Kaepernick clearly thought he was in the end zone with a winning touchdown for the Niners (4-4).I know I crossed the line. I was looking into the end zone, Kaepernick said. The ball came out. I have to hold on to it.Last-place St. Louis (3-5) sure is throwing a wrinkle into the NFC West race after victories over defending Super Bowl champion Seattle two weeks ago and then the 49ers — by a combined five points.Here are some things of note from the Rams victory at Levis Stadium:UNDER REVIEW: A pair of reviewed calls played heavily into the outcome.Referee Jerome Boger found himself answering the questions afterward, noting on the final play there was nothing we could see that could change the ruling on the field.The first half ended in strange fashion.When Phil Dawsons 55-yard field goal try came up well short, Tavon Austin caught the ball near the back of the end zone and brought it out a few yards before backtracking to try to get around the right edge.Derek Carrier tackled Austin in the end zone as the first-half clock expired.As the two teams headed for their respective locker rooms, the head coaches stayed put for the ruling, which was that forward progress was stopped in the field of play and the play stood without a safety.MISSED CHANCES: The 49ers realize they cant afford to lose games like this and stay in the West race. They still have two games with Seattle — including Thanksgiving nigght at home — and a season-ending matchup against Arizona. Marshall Faulk Jersey. San Francisco, which has reached three straight NFC championship games, sits in third place.Weve just got to look at ourselves in the mirror and were going to try to get to this post-season, running back Frank Gore said. Weve got to go do it and stop playing around.MARTINS DEBUT: Marcus Martin picked up a blitz on the 49ers initial drive, leading to a 15-yard catch by Crabtree.But on the next series, Martin had a bad snap on third down that was low and forced Kaepernick to grab the ball near his shoestrings.The rookie centre had his share of growing pains in his NFL debut. He replaced injured starter Daniel Kilgore, lost for the season to a fractured left ankle that required surgery.Martin got beat several times, too, including on Laurinaitis sack up the middle on the first play of the second quarter.They brought a lot of pressure, Martin said. They have a good front seven.Veteran left tackle Joe Staley also struggled to protect Kaepernick.We have all the talent in the world. Weve been doing some dumb stuff and they took advantage of it, Staley said. Penalties, dumb blocks, dumb techniques, and dumb schemes.SACK-HAPPY RAMS: The Rams came into the game with six sacks all season, then took Kaepernick down six times in the first half alone on the way to eight total sacks by six players.Robert Quinn had a pair of second-quarter sacks and forced Kaepernick into a lost fumble on one that set up St. Louis touchdown.We threw a couple different looks at him, Quinn said. The D-line rushed their tails off. When we had an opportunity to get him down, we found a way. Against a guy like him, if you miss him, he can strike off 50-60 yards.BORLANDS TACKLES: Rookie Chris Borland had a career day on an otherwise forgettable afternoon for San Francisco.The rookie third-round draft pick did a fine job filling in for injured linebacker Patrick Willis, who missed his second straight game with a strained muscle in his left big toe.Borland had 18 tackles with 15 solo tackles.He has benefited in the meeting room with Willis and injured All-Pro NaVorro Bowman.Our defence played better overall but just a sour taste in my mouth, Borland said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL  href="http://www.wholesalejerseysverycheap.com/">Discount NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Cheap NFL Jerseys China China Womens NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens JerseysWholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
