TORONTO -- Dylan Moscovitch arrived in Detroit last summer for a two-day tryout with Russian pairs skater Lubov Iliushechkina. Melvin Ingram Jersey . Two days quickly turned into six weeks. The tryout was so good we cancelled our flights home, Moscovitch said. Moscovitch had just split with Kirsten Moore-Towers, with whom he finished fifth at the Sochi Olympics, and was searching for a new partner. Fast forward five months and Moscovitch and Iliushechkina will make their competitive debut this week at the Warsaw Cup in Poland. Its been a lot of fun, and an interesting process in terms of all the extra stuff weve had to figure out in terms of immigration and her release from Russia and all of that, but the skatings been great, Moscovitch said. Im really enjoying skating with Lubov, shes an excellent partner, and were learning a lot from each others different styles of skating. Moscovitch and Moore-Towers announced the split last spring after five seasons together that included two fourth-place finishes at the world championships. Moore-Towers said she wanted to compete for three more Olympics. Moscovitch couldnt commit to that, but wasnt ready to leave the sport. I wasnt done. I wanted to go another four years, he said. And the situation kind of left me spinning a little bit. I wasnt exactly sure what my options were, where to turn, I turned 30 in September, and its hard to start over. I didnt really think I wanted to start with someone who hadnt done pairs, and so I wasnt really sure what my options were. He decided he wouldnt retire before at least trying out other partners, and approached Iliushechkina on Facebook. She won gold at the 2009 world junior championships and then gold at Skate Canada International a year later with Nodari Maisuradze. That partnership ended in 2012. Shed been frozen out since then as the Russian federation refused permission to switch allegiance to compete for France with Yannick Kocon. The Russian federation finally gave Iliushechkina a release to compete with Moscovitch, announcing the decision last month. The two had been training together, hoping for the release, since that tryout in mid-May. They trained alone in Detroit, because Iliushechkina had a U.S. visa, for six weeks. When the 23-year-old obtained a Canadian visa, they moved to Toronto, where theyre coached by Lee Barkell, Bryce Davison and Tracy Wilson. While Moore-Towers and her new partner Michael Marinaro competed at Skate Canada and will compete this week at the Trophee Eric Bompard in Bordeaux, France, the Russian release came too late for Moscovitch and Iliushechkina to compete on the Grand Prix circuit. Theyll compete at the national championships in January and if they finish in the top three, will represent Canada at the world championships. Iliushechkina will have to obtain Canadian citizenship before they can compete at an Olympics, but changing allegiances is fairly common in the sport. Ice dancers Kaitlyn Weaver and Piper Gilles are both Americans who received Canadian citizenship to compete with Canadian partners. We started the immigration process, Moscovitch said. Weve got a bit of time and have some people working on it with us, so we have positive feelings about it. The veteran pairs skater is happy to have a fresh start with Iliushechkina. The best thing about it is everything is new. I dont feel like Ive just taken what I had before and moved it over to a new partner, Moscovitch said. Its a new look. Ive learned new lifts, Ive learned different things with Lubov. Shes very flexible which enables us to do some pretty interesting lift positions, and different entrances, and shes very creative, so Ive learned a lot in that way. Hopefully just being in a different environment and having different coaches look at my skating, I feel like my overall skating skills have changed a little bit, in matching her skating.

One out away from finishing off an impressive shutout, they let a must-win game slip away.BOSTON -- Jason Kipnis delivered three singles for the Cleveland Indians, and then he helped them out with his glove. The Indians second baseman snagged a hard-hit grounder from Red Sox slugger David Ortiz to start an eighth-inning double play. Instead of facing a late Boston rally, the Indians held on for a 3-2 victory on Saturday that snapped a four-game losing streak. "He hit it pretty hard," Kipnis said. "You guys know as well as I do: Youve got some time with him going down the line. All he has to do is jog, with most of his hits." Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Brantley each had a pair of hits for Cleveland, which had lost eight of its past nine games at Fenway Park. The Indians scored two runs in the seventh to take the lead on an error by catcher A.J. Pierzynski and a bases-loaded walk. "Were going to have to win some games like that," said Cleveland manager Terry Francona, whose team stranded 13 base runners and went 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position. John Axford (2-3) earned the win with one scoreless inning in relief of T.J. House, and Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his seventh save. Craig Breslow (2-2) took the loss, allowing two unearned runs and two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning. Boston starter Jake Peavy left with a 2-1 lead but remains winless in his past nine starts. "You just try to do what you can do to win," said Peavy, who entered the game with the second-lowest run support in the AL. "Obviously, its been tough to score on my day, thats something Im not going to shy away from. Im not blaming anyone. I have to be better. Guys have to find a way to be better on my day to win. Its frustrating, no doubt. At the end of the day its frustrating to lose." The Red Sox ledd 2-1 when Breslow relieved Peavy to start the seventh. Dexter McCoil Jersey. Cabrera hit a grounder behind second base that shortstop Jonathan Herrera grabbed with a diving stop, but his throw to first short-hopped Mike Napoli and popped off the heel of his glove. Michael Brantley singled to right, then second baseman Dustin Pedroia tried to come home on Kipnis grounder but Pierzynski couldnt come up with the ball. Home plate umpire Sean Barber initially signalled out, but changed the call when he saw the ball rolling in the dirt. "You cant second-guess that," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Thats a good, aggressive defensive play. Then unfortunately we started to nitpick a little bit on the outside of the strike zone." Two outs later, David Murphy walked to load the bases and, after Junichi Tazawa relieved Breslow, Carlos Santana walked in the go-ahead run to make it 3-2. Jonny Gomes and Brock Holt had two hits apiece for the Red Sox, who scored a season-high 10 runs on Friday night. Boston had won seven in a row at home. Ortiz doubled in a run in the first inning for Boston. It was his 422nd career double in a Red Sox uniform, tying Wade Boggs for fourth on the teams all-time list. NOTES: Peavy is 0-4 with a 5.46 ERA in his past nine starts. ... Red Sox SS Stephen Drew missed his sixth straight game with a right side muscle injury.
