METAIRIE, La. Damien Wilson Jersey . - New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton sounds conflicted when the topic turns to his extraordinary success coaching in the Superdome in recent years.Payton is pleased to remind Saints fans that they can indeed create an advantage for their team by being excruciatingly loud at the right moments. Hes less comfortable playing up the fact that he has coached 20 straight games in the Superdome without losing.Theres a lot of stuff thats gone into that and none of its applicable for this weekends game against San Francisco, Payton said of his personal winning streak in the dome. It really isnt.New Orleans (4-4) plays its next three games at home, starting against the 49ers (4-4) on Sunday, with contests against Cincinnati and Baltimore to follow. Given the Saints success in the Superdome, an opportunity to build on their slim division lead in the shaky NFC South would appear to be there for the taking.Its nice to get in front of the home crowd, Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. I feel like weve got some momentum going. We want to take advantage of this opportunity and this momentum we have.The 49ers won in New Orleans as recently as 2012, but that was when Payton was suspended in connection with the NFLs bounty investigation — and it was the lone season in the previous five in which the Saints missed the playoffs.Last season, San Francisco played the Saints close in the dome, but was hurt by a disputed unnecessary roughness penalty assessed to Ahmad Brooks on his sack and strip of Brees. Without the penalty, the Niners would have recovered the fumble with a 20-17 lead and only 3:12 to play. Instead, the Saints kept the ball and kicked a game-tying field goal, then held the Niners offence before driving for a game-winning kick by Garrett Hartley as time expired.Some Niners players expressed bitterness about that game, which could have put a dent in the Superdome mystique. Instead, it simply went down as part of New Orleans perfect 8-0 home record last season.Including playoffs, the Saints were 9-0 at home in 2011, and most of those games werent close. When Payton returned from suspension, New Orleans home dominance picked up where it left off. The Saints have now won 11 straight in the dome overall since Paytons return and are 3-0 at home this season, most recently routing a Green Bay squad that had come in on a four-game winning streak.Its very difficult to play in the Superdome, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said. I mean, the Saints are a great team, so theyre going to be tough anywhere, especially at home.San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh added, Its very loud. Its a great environment for football.Just not necessarily for an opposing offence.During the week of a home game, Payton routinely uses media conferences to remind fans to loudly get behind their defence when opposing offences come to the line of scrimmage. This season, hes taken it a step farther, having players like pass-rushing outside linebacker Junior Galette record videos reminding fans to get loud! The videos appear on the domes large video boards at moments deemed advantageous to New Orleans defence.Sometimes Galette looks up from the field and watches his amplified exhortation.I pump myself up, Galette said. Im like, Yeah, Ive got to get it.This season, the Saints average margin of victory at home is 12.7 points. Last season, the Saints won their eight home games by an average margin of 18.4 points.Hopefully, we keep that streak going for a while, Brees said, but then cautioned, just because were playing at home, it does not entitle us to anything.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Derrick Thomas Jersey . Warren made six birdies and a bogey for a 5-under total of 139 to sit one shot ahead of Felipe Aguilar of Chile, who carded a 69. David Horsey of England was also on 5 under through 15 holes to join Warren atop the leaderboard before play was stopped. Tyreek Hill Jersey . Louis Blues have returned to the top spot in the TSN. http://www.prochiefsauthentic.com/Youth-Larry-Johnson-Elite-Jersey/ . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.ATLANTA -- Kyle Kendrick is hoping his best start of the season is a sign he can make a strong finish to a mostly disappointing 2014 and set the foundation for a better 2015. Kendrick allowed only three hits in seven scoreless innings, Carlos Ruiz homered and drove in two runs, and the Philadelphia Phillies shut out the struggling Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Tuesday night. "That was his best game by far," said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg of Kendrick, who began the night with a 4.97 ERA. One day after Cole Hamels and three relievers threw the first combined no-hitter in Phillies history, Kendrick (8-11) and relievers Ken Giles and Antonio Bastardo were dominant in the three-hit shutout. The Braves, determined to bounce back from the no-hitter, began taking batting practice before the game with rain still coming down on Turner Field. Kendrick said that was a sure sign Atlantas hitters would have aggressive at-bats. Kendricks strategy was to get ahead in counts, including in a key strikeout of Evan Gattis with the bases loaded in the first inning. "Hes pretty aggressive," Kendrick said. "I was trying not to miss over the plate." Gattis struck out while chasing a pitch in the dirt. Kendrick then struck out Chris Johnson to end the inning. The Braves, who began the night 1 1/2 games behind the NL wild-card leaders, have lost three of four. Each of the three losses was a shutout. "Were a talented club offensively," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. "A very talented club. We can put up numbers offensively. And to get shut out back to back days and three out of four days and only score one run ... its mind-boggling." The Braves havent scored in 24 consecutive innings. Their only run in their last 36 innings was a homer by Evan Gattis in a 1-0 win over the Marlins on Sunday. "Its not real pretty to watch right now," Gonzalez said. Jason Heyward had two doubles. Atlantas only other hit was a third-inning single by Andrelton Simmons. Bastardo struck out the side in the nninth. Harrison Butker Jersey. Kendrick, who began the night with a 4.97 ERA, had four strikeouts and two walks while winning his third straight start. It was his first start without allowing a run since throwing 6 2-3 scoreless innings in a 9-0 win over Colorado on May 26. Ruiz led off the fifth with line-drive homer into the left-field seats off Mike Minor (6-9). Darrin Rufs run-scoring single in the sixth drove in Ben Revere for a 2-0 lead. Ruiz doubled in a run in the eighth. Minor allowed three runs on seven hits in 7 1-3 innings. Ben Revere led off the sixth with his second single. He quickly advanced on his second stolen base of the game and, with two outs, moved to third on a wild pitch. Ruf drove in Revere with a single to right field for a 2-0 lead. Upton left the game in the sixth inning with bruised left triceps. Ryan Doumit took over in left field. Upton, who leads the team with 26 homers and 91 RBIs, was hit by a pitch from Kendrick on the left arm in the first inning. The Braves said Uptons status is day to day. DEBUT FOR FRANCO Phillies third baseman Mikael Franco was 0-for-3 with a RBI in his much-anticipated major league debut. His fly ball to centre field in the eighth drove in Ruf. "A real nice at-bat," Sandberg said. THIS IS OUR TOWN The Phillies are only 7-8 against the Braves, but they are 6-2 in Atlanta and on Wednesday will try to complete their second three-game sweep of the season at Turner Field. The Phillies won three straight in Atlanta June 16-18. TRAINERS ROOM Philadelphia: RHP Mike Adams was activated off the 60-day disabled list. He had been out since June 8 with right rotator cuff inflammation. Atlanta: RHP Kris Medlen threw for the first time since having right elbow ligament-replacement surgery in spring training. UP NEXT Philadelphia: RHP David Buchanan (6-7), who is 0-2 in his last four starts, will look for his first win against the Braves. Atlanta: Ervin Santana (13-7) is 0-1 in his last two starts despite allowing only a combined nine hits and two runs over 13 innings. ' ' '
