Stuttgart beats Frankfurt 2-1 in 1st home win


BERLIN (AP) -Stuttgart beat high-flying Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 to claim its first home win in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Christian Gentner opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Anderson's attempted clearance fell kindly for the midfielder to shoot through the goalkeeper's legs.

Alexander Meier equalized in the 67th, when he received Stefan Aigner's pass on the left, looked up, and curled an unstoppable effort inside the far post.

Vedad Ibisevic scored the winning goal with six minutes remaining, rising high to head Gentner's cross to the far corner, two minutes after he'd had a goal ruled out for offside.

Sven Ulreich produced a fine save to deny the visitors a late equalizer in injury time.

Bayern Munich was scheduled to host Bayer Leverkusen later Sunday, with Borussia Moenchengladbach visiting Hannover.
