PHILADELPHIA -- Nearly all the Miami Marlins rushed over to the dugout railing and playfully pretended to listen when Joey Cora sat down to speak about filling in for suspended manager Ozzie Guillen. Air Max One Wit . Shortly after Guillen addressed the team in the clubhouse Wednesday and apologized for saying he admired Fidel Castro, it was business as usual for the players. To a man, they had his back. "Its really a hard time for him and his family," closer Heath Bell said. "We felt bad for him. You have to understand that occasionally guys make mistakes. At least hes owning up to it and not trying to hide or shy away from it. Hes going to try and make up for his mistakes. "He can only be a better person out of it. Like he said, if he doesnt learn from this, hes stupid. Thats what he said." Guillens comments led to his five-game suspension that started when Miami played the Phillies in the second game of a three-game series. The Marlins, who opened a new ballpark last week and added several marquee free agents over the winter, are off to a 2-3 start. A day after a contrite Guillen held an hourlong news conference in Miami, he talked to the team for less than 10 minutes and expressed similar emotions. "Theres nothing he needs to apologize to us about," reliever Mike Dunn said. "Hes our manager and we back him 100 per cent." Outfielder Logan Morrison said: "I love the guy." The Marlins conclude the series with Philadelphia on Thursday, before returning home to play Houston on Friday. Guillens praise of the Cuban dictator in an interview with Time magazine outraged the Cuban-American community in Miami and led some politicians to call for his dismissal. "This one was big and he felt it from the beginning," said Cora, a close friend of Guillen whos been coaching under him since 2004 with the Chicago White Sox. "He got shaken, he felt it. After he analyzed what happened, in retrospect, he wouldnt have said what he said. He apologized and it came from the heart and hopefully he makes amends with the community. "He will." Cora has filled in for Guillen before, though never under these circumstances. He said he planned to manage games the way Guillen would and was certain players wouldnt be affected. Things werent quite the same for him, of course. "Ive never had this many people try to get me to talk," Cora joked. "You guys know me. I dont talk. I barely say Hi to people." Guillen apologized over the weekend after his remarks were published, and called it the biggest mistake of his life at his news conference on Tuesday. "Were not worried about it," Morrison said of the situation. "Were worried about winning games. Its not a distraction. Its not an excuse to play (poorly)." The team didnt consider firing Guillen or ask him to resign five games into his tenure, Marlins president David Samson said on Tuesday. Guillen said he doesnt love or admire Castro. "I was saying I cannot believe somebody who hurt so many people over the years is still alive," he said. Time said Tuesday it stands by its story. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said the remarks "have no place in our game" and were "offensive to an important part of the Miami community and others throughout the world." "As I have often said, baseball is a social institution with important social responsibilities," Selig added in a statement on Tuesday. "All of our 30 clubs play significant roles within their local communities, and I expect those who represent Major League Baseball to act with the kind of respect and sensitivity that the games many cultures deserve."

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Everybody knows what Nik Stauskas has done this season. But he had a lot of help from Michigans freshmen in leading the way to yet another big road win. Stauskas scored 15 points and freshmen Derrick Walton III and Zak Irvin each had a big game to power the 15th-ranked Wolverines to a 70-60 victory over No. 22 Ohio State on Tuesday night. "Obviously, it was a hostile arena," senior forward Jordan Morgan said. "Youve got to get comfortable with pressure that (the Buckeyes) are going to put on you. Theyre going to challenge you to make big plays and I think our freshmen stepped up and did it." Walton scored 13 points, added a career-high 10 rebounds and was just one behind his previous best in assists with six. Irvin came off the bench to give the Wolverines (18-6, 10-2 Big Ten) a lift. He scored 10 points, hitting both of his 3-pointers and adding a solid defensive effort. Michigan coach John Beilein was pleased with just about everybody in blue, but had particular praise set aside for his first-year players. "Walton had a great game, with 10 rebounds and controlling the tempo," he said. Of Irvin, he added, "Hes been a typical freshman in some ways, but the young man can make a shot." The victory ended a nine-game skid over the last 11 years in Columbus for the Wolverines, who came into the game tied for the top spot in the conference with Michigan State. "We love getting road wins. Thats one of the hardest things to do in this conference," said Morgan, who had eight rebounds -- six on the offensive glass -- and contributed six points. "Any time you can get one of those its big. Obviously, this game means a lot to a lot of people. For us to come into this environment and get this win is big." LaQuinton Ross had 24 points and Lenzelle Smith Jr. 13 for Ohio State (19-6, 6-6), which had a three-game winning streak snapped. The Buckeyes hadnt lost to their archrivals on their home court since a 61-50 setback on Jan. 15, 2003. The Wolverines were coming off an 85-67 loss at No. 17 Iowa on Saturday and had played three road games in 10 days and fivee games total over the last 13. Dames Roze/Wit Nike Air Max 2016 Schoenen (KPU). But they had more energy in the second half -- outscoring Ohio State 44-30 -- to pull out a game in which they trailed by 10 points in the opening 20 minutes. The Buckeyes led by eight early in the second half, but that cushion disappeared when Michigan scored on four straight possessions, including a dunk by Jon Horford off Waltons assist, a 3 by Irvin, Columbus native Caris LeVerts steal and end-to-end layup, and two foul shots by Stauskas. That gave the Wolverines their first lead since their first basket at 44-43. The surge was part of a 12-0 run that turned the game around. Stauskas picked up a basket on a goaltending call before Walton slashed through the lane and was fouled while spinning in a layup, completing the three-point play to make it 49-43 with 9:15 left. "When it came down to it, they gave the ball to Walton down the stretch and let him make plays," said Buckeyes defensive whiz Aaron Craft. Ohio State got as close as 51-50 before Morgan scored inside and then, on the next trip down the floor, kept the ball alive on an offensive rebound, leading to a 3 by Stauskas. Shannon Scotts steal led to a dunk by Buckeyes teammate Sam Thompson, and Michigan was hanging on, 56-52, with 3:24 left. But LeVert drove the lane and flicked a pass to the right corner to Glenn Robinson III, who hit a 3 with 2:45 left to push the lead to 59-52. "Robinsons 3 from the corner was huge," said Ohio State coach Thad Matta, who fell to 17-5 against Michigan. After Craft airballed a 3 at the other end, Walton was fouled on a 3 with 1:54 left and calmly made all three to push the lead to 10. The Buckeyes didnt threaten again. "Today we werent the tougher team down the stretch," Craft said. It was the only regular-season meeting between the longtime rivals this season, due to the Big Tens 18-game, rotating schedule. Thats OK with Beilein. "It was like a Final Four game," he said of the atmosphere, which included a roaring crowd of 18,809. "It was loud. And it had two of the really good programs in the Big Ten going at it."
