Schalke 04 bounced back from their bad Bundesliga start in style, beating rivals Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the Ruhr Valley derby Saturday to confirm their improving form and ease the pressure on coach Jens Keller.Schalke moved up to seventh on eight points while last season's runners-up Dortmund, who take on Anderlecht in the Champions League, slipped to ninth, a point behind following their third loss in six league games.Hummels, who had not played since the World Cup final until the 2-2 draw against VfB Stuttgart in midweek, looked out of position when unmarked Matip rose among four Dortmund players to head in on 10 minutes.Ten-man Bayer Leverkusen, who had defender Emir Spahic dismissed in the 30th minute, rescued a draw at Freiburg, who also ended the game with 10 men.
