    As much as Kevin Streelman enjoys the back nine at TPC River Highlands,, even he didnt think he what he accomplished Sunday was possible. Brynden Trawick Jersey . Streelman birdied the last seven holes to win the Travelers Championship by a stroke, shooting his second straight 6-under 64 to finish at 15-under 265. "Its probably my favourite nine holes on the PGA Tour," Streelman said. "But you cant plan for something like that to happen. It just kind of falls into place." He broke the tour record for consecutive closing birdies by a winner of six set by Mike Souchak in the 1956 St. Paul Open. He matched the tournament record with a 7-under 28 on the final nine. "I had 10 one-putts in a row," Streelman said. "Thats something Ive definitely never done before." Also the Tampa Bay Championship winner last season, the 35-year-old Streelman missed the cuts in his previous four starts on tour. "I didnt have too many expectations coming here," said Streelman, who earned $1.12 million for the victory. Sergio Garcia and K.J. Choi tied for second. They each shot 67. Aaron Baddeley was fourth at 13 under after a 69. Streelman was 1 over for the day before starting the birdie run on No. 12. The streak reached five with a 37-foot putt at No. 16, and he capped it by hitting a wedge to 9 feet and rolling in another putt at No. 18. "I knew when that putt fell on 16 that something kind of special was happening," Streelman said. Streelman said he hasnt focus on golf exclusively lately, trying to spend more time with wife Courtney and 6-month-old daughter Sophie. "I was thinking about her (Sophie) on those last couple of putts. I was thinking, You know what? If these go in, great. If not, great. Shes going to love me either way and we have a nice family vacation coming up either way," Streelman said. Streelman said a 10-foot putt for birdie on No. 9 gave him a boost of confidence that he could finish with a flourish. Garcia has six top-10 finishes in 10 PGA Tour starts this season, and won the European Tours Qatar Masters in January. "At the end of the day he played really, really well," Garcia said about Streelman. "I feel like I played quite nicely and it just wasnt my time." For the sixth straight year at the Travelers the player who held the 54-hole lead was unable to win. Ryan Moore was one stroke ahead after three rounds, but closed with a 71 to tie for fifth at 12 under. Second-round leader Scott Langley birdied his first three holes and briefly pulled into the lead at 14 under. He, too, finished with a 71 to tie for 11th at 10 under. Miguel Angel Carballo became the second player to make three eagles in a round on the PGA Tour this season as part of a 63 early Saturday. He finished at 9 under. Patrick Rodgers, the former Stanford star making his pro debut, shot a 70 to tie for 46th at 4 under. Ken Duke, the winner last year, had a 68 to also finish at 4 under. Michael Jackson Jersey . Hicham Khalouas late goal improved Almerias chances of avoiding relegation in a match dominated by contentious calls, including three penalties. One day after Barcelonas 4-3 win at Real Madrid featured three penalties, referees again dominated a wide-open game that saw Almeria ultimately move out of the relegation zone and one point ahead of Getafe which took its place. Jihad Ward Jersey . -- Arizona came out of its last meeting with California a bit discombobulated, hurting from its first loss and the loss of forward Brandon Ashley for the rest of the season.PHILADELPHIA - From start to finish, the Philadelphia Eagles dominated the New York Giants on offence, defence and special teams.Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes and LeSean McCoy had a season-high 149 yards rushing to help the Eagles beat the Giants 27-0 on Sunday night for their first shutout in 18 years.As a collective unit, as an entire team, we did a tremendous job in all three phases, cornerback Cary Williams said.A rough night for the Giants (3-3) became worse when wide receiver Victor Cruz tore the patellar tendon his right knee while leaping for a pass on fourth down from the Eagles 3 in the third quarter. Cruz, a 2012 Pro Bowl pick, was crying and holding his hands to his face as he was carted off the field with an injury thats expected to end his season.Huge loss, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. It wasnt a good situation, a grim scene.Wearing all-black uniforms for the first time in franchise history, the Eagles (5-1) stayed tied with Dallas (5-1) for the lead in the NFC East. They hadnt shut out an opponent since a 24-0 win over the Giants on Dec. 1, 1996, at old Veterans Stadium.Foles had 248 yards passing, Darren Sproles ran for a score and the offence had a rare strong start.The defence harassed and pressured Eli Manning often, sacking him six times and preventing New Yorks upstart offence from getting on track. The Giants had won three in a row, scoring more than 30 points in each victory.Its a good reminder that you just cant show up on the field and have things go well for you automatically, Manning said. We got outplayed, outperformed.Manning was sacked only seven times in the first five games before Connor Barwin (three), Vinny Curry (two) and Trent Cole (one) took him down. Brandon Graham and Brandon Bair sacked Ryan Nassib to make it eight for the defence.When you have a guy with his experience and intelligence, you disguise a little more, defensive co-ordinator Billy Davis said about facing Manning.The Eagles entered with 11 offensive touchdowns and seven from their defence and special teams. But Foles and Co. didnt need much help in this one.Foles tossed a 15-yard scoringg pass to Zach Ertz for Philadelphias first offensive TD in the first quarter this season. Torrey Smith Jersey. Ertz made a diving catch, dragging his feet to stay in bounds.Foles hit a wide-open James Casey for a 26-yard TD pass to make it 17-0 in the second quarter. Casey had only one catch this season and hadnt scored a TD since 2012 with the Texans, but the Giants bit on a play-action fake and left the third-string tight end open running down the middle.We want to start faster and thats what we did, Foles said.Sproles had a 15-yard TD run to put the Eagles ahead 27-0. He left the game with a left knee injury and didnt return.Foles pass was intercepted by Antrel Rolle inside the red zone on a poor pass off his back foot late in the second quarter. He threw another pick to Zack Bowman in the third quarter, but the Giants ensuing drive ended with the incomplete pass on which Cruz was injured.McCoy had more yards rushing in the first quarter than he had in full games against Washington and San Francisco. McCoy, an All-Pro last year, had struggled this season, averaging 2.9 yards per carry. But he has more career yards rushing against the Giants than any NFL team.I never lost confidence in myself; you guys did and the people out there did, McCoy said.The Giants were without Rashad Jennings, who entered the week as the NFLs fifth-leading rusher. Rookie Andre Williams started for Jennings, out with a sprained left knee.Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks missed his fourth straight game because of a calf injury. But linebacker DeMeco Ryans played despite being limited in practices by a groin injury.Cody Parkey kicked field goals of 31 and 45 yards. The rookie is 12 of 13 with a pair of 51-yarders this season.NOTES: Foles leads the NFL with 10 turnovers (seven interceptions, three fumbles). He had 29 TD passes, including playoffs last year, and only two picks. ... Parkeys 45-yarder was his first FG attempt between 40-49 yards. ... Manning finished 13 of 23 for 151 yards.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi ' ' '
