SAN FRANCISCO - Jon Lester pitched into the ninth for his first victory in four tries this month, and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the San Francisco Giants 7-0 on Monday night after flying cross-country earlier in the day. Zdeno Chara Bruins Jersey . Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit RBI doubles, Shane Victorino added an RBI single and Will Middlebrooks had a sacrifice fly for Boston. The Red Sox chose to travel first thing Monday rather than late Sunday night after a 9-6 loss to the Yankees at Fenway Park. Lester (11-7) allowed six hits, struck out three and walked two in Bostons seventh shutout. He outpitched two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum (6-13) to snap a three-start winless stretch since a victory at Baltimore on July 28. Lester gave way to Brandon Workman after allowing a pair of one-out singles in the ninth. Lincecum was done after five-plus innings and lost for the fourth time in his last five decisions. Two of his four walks were intentional free passes to Middlebrooks. Giants pitchers had a balk, wild pitch and hit batsman in the same home game for the first time since April 10, 2010, against Atlanta. The two clubs faced off for just their fourth series and first since Boston took two of three at AT&T Park in an injury-plagued stop. In a lengthy tribute to the Boston Marathon bombing victims before the game, players from both sides walked out of their dugouts and stood on their respective baselines in a show of solidarity and support. Lester retired the first nine Giants in order before Andres Torres lined a single to left leading off the fourth. The Boston left-hander tossed a complete game in his lone other start against San Francisco, a five-hitter on June 27, 2010, at AT&T Park. He nearly did it again. Boston staked Lester to an early lead with three runs in the second — showing no signs of being weary from a 4-hour, 12-minute game Sunday night and then the travel. Will Middlebrooks hit a sacrifice fly and a balk by Lincecum forced in another run. Torres also singled in the sixth and eighth innings to finish with three of San Franciscos six hits and his first multihit game since June 29 at Colorado. The Giants were blanked for the 10th time. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz went 0 for 5 with two strikeouts. Dustin Pedroia hit a ninth-inning triple and scored on Saltalamacchias two-out double. Boston manager John Farrell reiterated he didnt think Ryan Dempster hit Alex Rodriguez on purpose a night earlier — and Farrell doesnt foresee any punishment from Major League Baseball. "I dont expect them to do anything," he said. "My view is that it was not intentional." Notes: A moment of silence and a video slideshow of still photos were held before the national anthem. The Giants wore Boston Strong patches. ... Lester is 12-5 in 24 career interleague outings. ... Giants CF Angel Pagan, recovering from left hamstring surgery, could join Triple-A Fresno for a rehab assignment in the next few days. ... LHP Jeremy Affeldt, on the DL since July 21 with a strained left groin, is slated to throw off the mound in the coming days. ... Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli missed his third straight game with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Manager John Farrell is optimistic he will play Tuesday. "Hes responding well to treatment hes getting on his foot," Farrell said. ... Lester, Tuesday starter Jake Peavy and newly activated catcher David Ross flew out ahead of the team to the Bay Area. ... The Giants dropped to 4-11 in interleague play. Adam Oates Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Brad Marchand Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. http://www.bruinshockeypro.com/authentic-tuukka-rask-bruins-jersey/ . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday.

OXFORD, Miss. Cristian Zapata Colombia Jersey . -- Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze says beating Alabama isnt just about having a great plan or possessing physical talent.The coach said players have to believe they can win the game. And when it comes to that, the Rebels should be just fine.No. 19 Mississippi (1-1) will be a substantial underdog when it hosts No. 1 Alabama (2-0) on Saturday in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. But the Rebels have one advantage -- they have a two-game winning streak in the series.You have to believe that you can and our kids do, Freeze said. We believe that we can play with anyone in the country. That doesnt mean we can beat them on any given day, but we do believe we have gotten to a point where we can step on a field and compete with them.Ole Miss will lean on senior quarterback Chad Kelly, who threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns in the Rebels 43-37 over the Tide in Tuscaloosa last season.Kelly leads the SEC with seven passing touchdowns so far this season.Alabama coach Nick Saban knows Ole Miss will try to create opportunities downfield and his defense must be ready.When we have struggled in the past we have given up explosive plays, which is something that their offense is constantly trying to create, Saban said.Alabamas defense certainly seems capable of shutting down the Rebels. Theyve had two impressive games so far this season and have given up just 16 points over two games.The Tides secondary, including cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick, say theyre prepared.Were going to go out there, play hard, play physical, fast and just try to get the win and make up for the last two years, Fitzpatrick said.---Some other things to watch when Alabama and Ole Miss meet on Saturday:RARE SUCCESS: Ole Miss has beaten Alabama twice in a row heading into Saturdays matchup, which is the only time thats happened in a series that dates back to 1894. Alabama has a 47-11-2 record in the series. The Rebels have had a little more success in game in Oxford, though, winning 4 of 11, including the 2014 matchup.RED ZONE SUCCESS: Ole Miss has scored in 10 out of 10 opportunities in the red zone this season -- all of them touchdowns. But the Rebels will be playing on Saturday without D.K. Metcalf, who had emerged as one of the teams best targets in the end zone. Metcalf, a 6-foot-4 freshman, caught a touchdown pass in both the Florida State and Wofford games, but a broken bone in his left foot has him on the sidelines indefinitely.DEALING WITH INJURIES: Metcalfs injury hasnt been the only setback for Ole Miss this season. The Rebels lost starting cornerback Kendarius Webster and running back Eric Swinney to season-ending knee injuries during the Florida State game. Ole Miss needs freshmen like Jaylen Jones and Jalen Julius to step up in the secondary while senior Akeem Judd, junior Eugene Brazley and freshman DVaughn Pennamon will likely have bigger-than-expected roles in the backfield.HURTS ON THE ROAD: Alabama freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts will be playing his first true road game on Saturday, but Tide coach Nick Saban is confident he can handle it. Said Saban: Its going to be a work in progress, but the thing that I like about him is that he doesnt get frustrated. He doesnt get all discombobulated. He has a lot of poise. I think he has a lot of inner confidence. He believes that he can do it. Its important to him.TRIPLE THREAT: Hurts has plenty of experienced targets in the passing game, led by receivers Calvin Ridley, ArDarius Stewart and tight end O.J. Howard. Stewart has emerged as the big-play threat so far this season with nine catches for 203 yards and two touchdowns. Ridley has caught a team-high 11 balls for 138 yards and a touchdown while Howard has caught five passes for 68 yards.---Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP and on the AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org . Carlos Bacca Colombia Jersey . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Juan Guillermo Cuadrado Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.nationalcolombiafootball.com/fredy-guarin-colombia-jersey/ . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. BASTAD, Sweden -- Fernando Verdasco saved the only break point he faced Wednesday to advance to his sixth Swedish Open quarterfinal with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Albert Montanes.The fifth-seeded Spaniard, who won his seventh ATP title in Bucharest in April, was a finalist in Bastad in 2013.Im happy with my way of playing, Verdasco said. I knew that it would be a tough match because hes a solid player.Verdasco next faces Facundo Bagnis, who ousted fourth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain 7-5, 6-3. The 32-year-old Argentine capitalized on three of his seven break point opportunities to reach his second tour-level quartterfinal. Radamel Falcao Jersey. .Third-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas prevailed over Roberto Carballes Baena 7-6 (5), 6-3 to face Andrea Arnaboldi in the quarterfinals.I think it was a good match, very tough, and Im very happy, the 28-year-old Barcelona native said after the first tour-level meeting between the two Spaniards.Arnaboldi upset eighth-seeded Evgeny Donskoy of Russia 6-3, 6-2 for his third tour-level win and first quarterfinal berth. The 28-year-old Italian saved both break points he faced. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory.CLEVELAND -- Coming off a tough series against the Detroit Tigers, the Cleveland Indians needed a boost. Thats exactly what they got in Tuesday nights 3-0 win over Toronto. Ubaldo Jimenez and three relievers combined on a shutout while the offence made the most of four hits to help the Indians rebound from losing three of four to the Tigers, who came into town and widened their lead in the American League Central. "This was a nice bounce-back win," manager Terry Francona said. "We didnt do a lot offensively but we played a crisp game. Again, it starts with pitching." Jimenez (7-4) dodged constant trouble in six innings, allowing five hits with two walks and four strikeouts. Cody Allen, Joe Smith and Chris Perez blanked Toronto over the final three innings. Perez allowed two hits in the ninth, but earned his 10th save as the Indians recorded their AL-leading 11th shutout. Nick Swisher and Michael Brantley had RBI singles in the fourth when the Indians put together a walk and three straight singles off starter Josh Johnson (1-4), who gave up two runs in seven innings. Asdrubal Cabrera added a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The win was also a nice bounce-back performance for Jimenez, who took a 5-0 lead into the sixth in his last start against Kansas City, but didnt retire a batter in that inning and the Indians went on to lose 10-7. When faced with trouble this time, Jimenez didnt buckle. "Like they say in baseball, you have to forget quick," he said. "You cant be thinking about bad stuff that happened. You have to forget about that and move on." "He pitched around some things but he never let it spiral or get out of hand," Francona said. "There was a lot of things to like." Toronto stranded nine runners, with seven in the first five innings, and was 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position. Maicer Izturis and Rajai Davis singled with one out in the ninth, but J.P. Arencibia struck out and pinch hitter Josh Thole lined out to shortstop. The Blue Jays best threat against Jimenez came in the fourth when they had runners on first and third with nobody out. Colby Rasmus started the inning with a double and took third on Izturis single. Davis hit into a fielders choice and stole second but Arencibia struck out and Emilio Bonifacio flied out to deep right. Jimenezs strongest inning came in the sixth, the only time he retired the side in order. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-brandon-belt-giants-jersey/. After finishing 9-17 with a 5.40 ERA in 2012, the right-hander has had much better results this season. He has won his last three decisions and is 4-1 with a 2.93 ERA in his last eight starts. "Hes done a pretty damn good job," Francona said. "He should be proud. What happened last season was difficult for him. He gives us a chance to win. Well take that." Johnson retired the first 10 hitters before Cabrera drew a one-out walk in the fourth. Johnson fell behind 3-0 before a foul ball and called strike ran the count full. Cabrera walked on an inside pitch before Jason Kipnis hit a hard ground ball past shortstop Jose Reyes for Clevelands first hit. Swisher bounced a single through the right side that scored Cabrera and moved Kipnis to third. Brantleys line single to right made it 2-0. Johnson beat Baltimore on June 23 for his only win of the season, allowing four runs in six innings. He was sidelined from April 21 to June 9 with right triceps inflammation. Johnson won his first career start against the Indians on May 20, 2012, while pitching for Miami. Toronto has lost each of Johnsons last three starts. The Blue Jays are 5-10 since winning 11 straight from June 11-23. "We outhit them, but we just didnt outscore them," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. "Thats what hurts. We had our chances, but we just couldnt get that big hit tonight." NOTES: The start of Tuesdays game was delayed by rain for 36 minutes. ...

MIAMI -- The Atlanta Hawks, who were eliminated from the playoffs two years in a row by the Cleveland Cavaliers, are playing as if they want another shot at LeBron James and friends. Cheap China Jerseys .The Hawks, who visit the struggling Miami Heat (2-7) on Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, are off to a 7-2 start, tied for second in the Eastern Conference with the Toronto Raptors.Cleveland (8-1) is alone in first place.The Hawks, who have been off since beating the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night, are playing better defense this season, in part due to the addition of shot-blocking center Dwight Howard.So far, the Hawks lead the NBA -- by a wide margin -- in terms of fewest points allowed in the fourth quarter, 20.1. The second-best fourth-quarter defense belongs to the Boston Celtics, who are allowing 25.8.We try to wear teams down with our depth -- maybe thats what it is, Hawks small forward Kent Bazemore told Atlanta media when asked about the fourth-quarter play. The fourth quarter is when you hone your focus. Thats winning time.Howard leads the team in the paint. He is averaging 15.2 points, 12.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks.He will face talented Heat center Hassan Whiteside, who has eight double-doubles in nine games this season.But while the Howard-Whiteside matchup bears watching, the Hawks figure to have a big advantage at power forward with Paul Millsap, who leads the team in scoring (16.7 points per game). Millsap was also a second-team All-Defense player last season, and the Heat dont really have an answer for him at that spot.Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder, who averages 16.3 points, leads the team in assists (6.2 per game) and gets the offense going with his great speed. He, too, figures to have an edge since the Heat are missing point guard Goran Dragic, who sat out the past two games due to a sprained left ankle.Bazemore averages 11.3 points, and Hawks wing guard Kyle Korver, who is one of the best shooters in the league, spreads the floor by averaging 9.8 points, including 45.0 percent accuracy on 3-pointers.Leading the Hawks bench brigade is Miami native Tim Hardaway Jr., who is averaging 12.3 points. Hardaway, whose dad was a former Heat star, is playing very well, shooting 61.5 percent on 2-pointers and 34.8 percent on 3-pointers.Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, who did not attend Mondays practice due to a personal issue but is expected to be at Tuesdays game, preaches defense.Any time we hold a team to 20 or less points in a quarter, he lets us know its well-appreciated, Bazemore said. Thats what he loves. Thats what a lot of our guys love. Its our calling card.On Tuesday, the Hawks will try to shut down a team that is already sputtering.The Heat, after falling at San Antonio 94-90 on Monday, have lost five in a row and will now have to face a more-rested team in the talented Hawks.Dragic, who has been replaced in the starting lineup by Josh Richardson, had a walking boot removed from his foot on Monday, when he rode an exercise bike for the first time since his injury.The Heat likely will try to get Dragic back in time for their Thursday home game against the Milwaukee Bucks.In the meantime, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra made a lineup change Monday, starting Derrick Williams at power forward and benching Luke Babbitt.Williams, who played a combined total of just three minutes in Miamis first seven games as Spoelstra went with Babbitt and others in the rotation, scored five points in 16 minutes against the Spurs.He gives us a good burst of energy and athleticism, Spoelstra said of Williams, who likely will match up against Millsap. He just needs to continue to build and do what he is doing, which is working to get better.Williams showed his athleticism in Miamis first possession Monday, working off a screen, taking one bounce and hitting a corner mid-range jumper.I just want to play hard and be consistent, Williams said. I want to bring energy, effort and efficiency. NFL Jerseys Cheap . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. China Cheap Jerseys .

"I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Quinton Hooker scored 17 points, Corey Baldwin added 16 points and North Dakota had 15 steals in a 98-48 victory over Crown College on Friday.North Dakota led 47-22 at the half and the Fighting Hawks quickly built a 30-point lead just two minutes into the second half to win their eighth straight season opener at home.Drick Bernstine added 12 points and 10 rebounds for North Dakota, while Conner Avants had 13 points and nine rebounds. Newcomers Kienan Walter (nine points), Billy Brown (eight points), and Devon PPekas (seven points) all contributed. China Wholesale Jerseys. orth Dakota shot 52.2 percent from the field and held the Storm to only 31.3 percent. Hooker was named the Big Sky preseason MVP on Oct. 26 and was one of six guards voted to the preseason all-conference team.Josh Volness led Crown College with nine points and six rebounds.

Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Danny Salazar Indians Jersey . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187.http://www.baseballindiansmlb.com/authentic-michael-brantley-indians-jersey/ . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Some 13 months later, Nickell Robey-Coleman insists he didnt interfere with Jaguars receiver Bryan Walters. And the Bills cornerbacks wish is that NFL referee Terry McAulay and his crew were officiating Buffalos home game against Jacksonville on Sunday.Thats the crew that made the terrible calls, Robey-Coleman told The Associated Press this week.Hes referring to what he, numerous teammates and coach Rex Ryan describe as being a phantom penalty on third-and-15 that extended Jacksonvilles go-ahead drive in the final minutes of a 34-31 victory at London .No, I havent forgotten, Robey-Coleman said. Im just saying that in order to respond to that, I would like to have (McAulays crew) again and show them were just better. Period.He wont get his wish, because McAulay is scheduled to work the Monday night game between Green Bay and Philadelphia.The Bills (5-5), however, get another shot at beating the Jaguars (2-8), a team that once again is experiencing difficulties with consistency and staying relevant.This is a must-win game, and this is a team that were supposed to beat, Robey-Coleman said.Having snapped a three-game skid with a 16-12 win at Cincinnati last weekend, the Bills have little room for error in their quest to end a 16-year playoff drought -- the NFLs longest active streak.Buffalo needs to overcome a banged-up offense that should get back Sammy Watkins from a left foot injury that sidelined him in September. Fellow receiver Robert Woods (left knee) and starting center Eric Wood (broken right leg) are out. Running back LeSean McCoy is expected to play a week having surgery to repair a dislocated left thumb.The defense is getting healthier with tackle Marcell Dareus (NFL suspension, hamstring, groin) creating havoc against the Bengals in only his second game of the season. Though Buffalos been susceptible to giving up long passes -- including seven 50 yards or longer -- this season, the defense is tied for the NFL lead with 31 sacks, and has held five opponents to under 310 yards offense.Buffalo faces a mistake-prone Jaguars offense that leads the NFL with 22 giveaways, including 13 interceptions by Blake Bortles, and has topped 24 points just once this season.In last weeks 26-19 loss at Detroit , Jacksonville combined for 8 yards net offense on its final three drives. Worse still, defensive lineman SenDerrick Marks jumped offside on fourth-and-2, allowing the Lions to run off 2::08 of the final 2:34 of game time in Jacksonvilles fifth straight loss. Andrew Miller Indians Jersey. This isnt considered progress for a third-year player in Bortles, who has 64 touchdowns versus 48 interceptions, or the Jaguars, who havent won more than five games since 2010.It seems to get harder and harder each time you lose. Its difficult, but theres nothing you can do about it, Bortles said. Its not time to fold up camp and get ready for next year. I look at it like we get a chance to go 8-8, so lets go do that.LONDON FOG: Ryan is still upset over the pass-interference call against Robey-Coleman. Hell, yeah, it still ticks me off, the Bills coach said, noting he is reminded of it every time McAulay officiates a Bills game.I still see him, Ryan said, before breaking into a laugh. Youre never going to assault somebody, but you think about it.LONDON FOG II: Bortles had a different perspective on what happened against Buffalo, noting how the Jaguars squandered a 27-3 lead and had to rally back to win on his 31-yard touchdown pass to Allen Hurns.What sticks with me is the fact we even let them back in the game, Bortles said. It shouldve been a blowout.SLOW STARTERS: The Jaguars ended a streak of five consecutive games without a takeaway at Detroit and would love to end another one Sunday. Jacksonville has failed to score a touchdown on its opening possession in 24 games, the leagues longest active streak. The Jags havent found the end zone on their opening drive since Week 2 of the 2015 season against Miami. Since then, they have 18 punts, three field goals and three turnovers.MARRONES RETURN: Jaguars assistant head coach Doug Marrone returns to Buffalo for the first time since opting out of his contract as Bills head coach following the 2014 season, which led to Ryan being hired.Ryan didnt know the reasons behind Marrones decision, but said hed never consider leaving Buffalo on his own. Theyre going to take me kicking and screaming out of this place, he said.CHANGING COORDINATORS: The Bills are 5-3 since Anthony Lynn took over as offensive coordinator after Greg Roman was fired. The Jaguars are 0-3 since Greg Olson was fired and replaced by Nathaniel Hackett, who was Buffalos offensive coordinator under Marrone.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Jersey . -- With two runners aboard in the sixth inning, the Royals Alcides Escobar was just trying to put the pitch from Yankees reliever Blake Parker in play Monday night.He wound up slapping it right over the wall.The three-run homer broke open a nip-and-tuck game, and backed by a strong pitching performance by Dillon Gee, Kansas City went on to beat New York 8-5 to open their three-game series.I knew I hit it good, Escobar said, but I wasnt 100 percent sure it was gone.Everybody else was sure, the way things have been going for Kansas City lately.The reigning World Series champions won for the 18th time in 22 games, closing within two games of the second AL wild card. The Royals (69-62) were seven games below .500 as recently as Aug. 6, nearly left for dead 11 games behind the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central.Gee (6-7) allowed four hits and a run over six sharp innings.The results just werent coming but Ive been throwing the ball well, said the Royals fifth starter, but tonight I got an early lead and just tried to stick to it.Lorenzo Cain, Kendrys Morales and Alex Gordon drove in runs off Michael Pineda (6-11) during a five-hit salvo in the first inning. Pineda then retired 15 straight before getting into a two-on, no-outs jam in the seventh that led to Escobars homer.It really broke the game open for us, Royals manager Ned Yost said.Starlin Castro drove in two runs for the Yankees, the second in a four-run eighth inning that forced Yost to summon fill-in closer Kelvin Herrera to make a four-out save.He retired Mark Teixeira to get out of his initial jam, then put runners on the corners in the ninth. Herrera calmly struck out Castro for his 11th save.It was a frustrating night for the Yankees, who had elbowed their own way back in the playoff chase. They were a half-game behind Kansas City at the start of the night, but their second straight loss on the heels of a four-game winning streak was costly against a fellow contender.Yankees manager Joe Girardis frustration was evident when he was tossed by plate umpire Brian ONora for arguing balls and strikes with the bases loaded and no outs in the eighth inning.Didi Gregorius proceeded to deliver a two-run double, and the Yankees tacked on two more runs against the Kansas City bullpen before Herrera put a stop to their rally.Two different strike zones. Its unfortunate, Girardi said of his ejection. Even the broadcasters were talking about it in the eighth and ninth inning. I dont know why. Im frustrated by it. I dont know if you give the catchers credit. I know the last inning and the inning before that Im watching on TV and I see it. Oh-1 is a lot different than 1-and-oh a lot of times.STATS AND STREAKSThe Royals have cut 7 1/2 games from their wild-card deficit in 22 games. ... All nine players in the Royals starting lineup had a hit. ... Pineda lost for the first time since July 31 at Tampa Bay, snapping a four-start winning streak. ... Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury reached base on catchers interference for the 11th time this season, extending his major league record.AWARD WINNERSYankees C Gary Sanchez won his second straight AL player of the week award. He hit .522 with three doubles, five homers and nine RBI while walking five times in six games. ... Royals 1B Eric Hosmer and Yankees SS Gregorius were chosen from their teams for the Heart and Hustle Award from the Major League Baseball Players Association.ROYALS TRADEThe Royals acquired INF/OF Daniel Nava from the Angels for a player to be named or cash considerations. He is not on the Angels 40-man roster and will be assigned to Triple-A Omaha.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals RHP Luke Hochevar said he experienced instant relief after surgery for symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome. The reliever will begin rehab with hopes of being ready for spring. The swelling, the coldness is gone, he said. I havent had any of that happen since surgery.UP NEXTYankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka has tossed 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts. He takes on Royals RHP Edinson Volquez, who has won his last two decisions. Ben Wallace Jersey . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. Grant Hill Jersey .

CINCINNATI -- Vontaze Burfict was a non-entity during preseason, not even getting on the field while the Bengals figured out how theyll do without him. Now that hes gone on a three-game suspension, they wont talk about him, either.The Bengals put their combustible linebacker on the suspension list Saturday as part of their moves to get down to the 53-man roster limit. Burfict got a three-game suspension from the NFL following his hit to receiver Antonio Browns head during Cincinnatis playoff meltdown against the Steelers last season.Coach Marvin Lewis didnt play him during the preseason, allowing the defense to get accustomed to his absence. Lewis abruptly cut off questions about the linebacker on Saturday during a conference call after the team made its roster moves.Were not going to discuss what Vontaze can and cant do, Lewis said. Were not going to talk about anything to do with Vontaze. Hes no longer on the team right now.Burfict missed the first six games last season while recovering from knee surgery. He started the final 10 regular-season games, plus an 18-16 playoff loss to the Steelers. Burficts hit to Browns head on an incomplete pass drew a personal foul that moved the Steelers into range for the winning field goal. The NFL suspended him for that hit and several others during his career that drew fines.Cincinnati allowed the second-fewest points in the league last season and brought back the majority of the unit.The Bengals placed defensive tackle Marcus Hardison on injured reserve with a shoulder injury on Saturday as part of its moves to reach the roster limit. Stanley Johnson Pistons Jersey. They have a couple more moves yet to make with injured players.They kept running back Cedric Peerman and rookie cornerback William Jackson III on the roster for now. Peerman is their top special teams player -- he made the Pro Bowl last season -- and is expected to recover from a broken left forearm. Jackson, their top draft pick, tore a pectoral muscle but could be healthy enough to play during the season.Teams can designate an injured player who is eligible to return after eight weeks if hes cleared medically.We feel that William Jackson and Ced Peerman, from what weve been told, have an opportunity to possibly come back at some point during the season, so were going to try to keep that option open for us, Lewis said.Hardison was a fourth-round pick last year, when he was slowed by a knee injury and wasnt active for games. He was hoping to earn a spot in the Bengals line rotation, but suffered a shoulder injury during the third preseason game.Its a shame when a guy has to go through that two years in a row, Lewis said.Cincinnati released veteran cornerback Chykie Brown and waived 18 players, most of them rookies.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. John Johnson Womens Jersey . -- Mastery won the $300,000 CashCall Futurity for 2-year-olds by a record 7 1/4 lengths Saturday at Los Alamitos, giving Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert his record ninth win in the Grade 1 race.Ridden by Hall of Famer Mike Smith, Mastery ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:41.56 and paid $2.40 and $2.10 as the 1-5 favorite. The win price was the shortest in Futurity history, bettering the $2.60 paid by Baffert-trained Point Given in 2000.It was the largest margin of victory in the 35-year history of the race that was first run at the old Hollywood Park. The old mark was seven lengths by Matty G in 1995.The victory, worth $180,000, increased Masterys career earnings to $271,200.Irap returned $9.40 at 24-1 odds in his first start on dirt, while Dangerfield was another 5 3/4 lengths back in third. Both horses are trained by Doug ONeill.Bobby Abu Dhabi was fourth and Show Me Da Lute was fifth. There was no show wagering because of the small field.Mastery earned 10 points for the victory and is in fifth place on the Kentucky Derby leaderboard, which determines the 20-horse field for the first Triple Crown race of 2017.Mastery improved to 3-0, having won his first race by 4 1/4 lengths and his second by 1 1/4 lengths. The 2-year-old cost was purchased for $425,000 at the Keeneland September sale last year.You dont know how they are going to do going two turns for the first time until they try it, Baffert said. Turning for home he hit a bit of a lull and l didnt know if he was going to go on or flatten out. The last part he threw it in another gear.Smith credited Baffert for putting blinkers back on Mastery to restrict his view. He first wore blinkers in career debut on Oct. 22.He relaxed great, Smith said. He started looking around a little when he made the front in the stretch, but after I gave him a reminder he re-broke and was strong.In the $301,380 Starlet for 2-year-old fillies, Abel Tasman took advantage of a quick pace and a ground-saving trip by jockey Joe Talamo to score a one-length upset.She ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:42.35 and paid $27.20, $7.60 and $5.60 at 12-1 odds. Abel Tasman was supplemented to the Grade 1 race for $10,000 a few days earlier.American Gal returned $2.60 and $2.20 as the 9-10 favorite, while 33-1 shot Mopotism was another 3 1/4 lengths back in third and paid $6.40 to show.The victory increased Abel Tasmans career earnings to $247,860.

BOSTON -- Yankees manager Joe Girardi is hoping to get second baseman Starlin Castro back in a week after the infielder left Saturdays game with a strained right hamstring. Dorian Johnson Womens Jersey .Castro grabbed his leg rounding first heading to second on a double and left the game. He was sent to New York to be examined following a 6-5 loss to the Red Sox.The club said he has a Grade 1 strain.It really depends on how he heals. Hopefully its not too long, Girardi said. Hopefully its not more than a week, but I still think thats pushing it.Castro has been one of teams better hitters lately. Hes batting .273 with 21 homers and 69 RBI.Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was also injured Saturday, when he bruised his right knee sliding into a bullpen wall trying to make a catch. Hes was also sent back to New York and is listed as day-to-day.Both the players are expected to meet the team Tuesday when it opens a series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Dorian Johnson Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. Budda Baker Cardinas Jersey . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. http://www.nflcardinalsauthoritystore.com/Authentic-TJ-Logan-Cardinals-Jersey/ . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Durham fast bowler Mark Wood has been recalled by England for the one-day series against Pakistan. His county team-mate Ben Stokes has also been included in the 15-man squad after a calf injury curtailed his Test series against Pakistan, following a knee problem earlier in the season against Sri Lanka which had required surgery. James Vince, however, has been dropped.This is the first squad Wood has been included in since injury ended his tour of the UAE last year, after which he underwent ankle surgery which kept him out of action until last month. He takes the place of Steven Finn, who picked up a hamstring injury on the fourth day at The Oval and has been ruled out for four weeks.Both captain Eoin Morgan (chipped bone in finger) and Jos Buttler (fractured thumb) are expected to be able to start the series following their recent injuries. However, while Stokes has been included, he is likely to start the series playing as a batsman only, before gradually being re-introduced as a bowler. Bens made really significant progress over the last three weeks and our medical team are pleased, James Whitaker, the national selector said. Hes progressing nicely towards bowling over the next week or so, and while we hope that initially he might just play as a batter he will lead into the series as an allrounder eventually.Hes worked really hard on his rehab and its given everyone a lot of confidence. To have him around again will be a huge bonus for Eoin Morgan and his team.Mark Wood has had a couple of operations, and with his hard work and advice from our medical team hes now able to take part in this series. Just over the last month hes progressed very well and were very happy for him. We got him back into the Lions initially, hed just played a couple of games for Durham before, and he played really well for the Lions and hes continued that form since.Vinces omission means he can return to four-day cricket with Hampshire in a bid to regain form and push for a touring spot to Bangladesh and India. He finished the Test series against Pakistan with 1 and 0 at The Oval and in seven Tests this season did not manage to pass fifty, while the familiarity off his dismissals - edging behind to the keeper or slips - became a concern. T. J. Logan Jersey. .There is better news for another Hampshire player, however, with Liam Dawson handed an ODI call-up. Dawson, the left-arm spin-bowling allrounder, took 3 for 27 on his T20I debut earlier in the season against Sri Lanka and he provides a third spin option alongside Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.He came into the squad for that one-off game and really impressed, Whitaker said. Hed previously impressed the coaches on the Performance Programme in the winter, and over the last two years hes been very consistent for Hampshire. So its good for him and Im really pleased he might get a go.The selectors have resisted resting any players after the Test series meaning that Chris Woakes, who was Man of the Series, and Joe Root are both included. That also means there are no places for the batsmen who impressed recently for England Lions in the triangular series against Pakistan A and Sri Lanka A.Ben Duckett, the Northamptonshire left-hander, had been tipped for a maiden call-up after making unbeaten scores of 220 and 163 in the tri-series while Sam Billings, the Kent wicketkeeper-batsman who has already featured for the full side, plunder 175 against Pakistan ADawid Malan, who captained the Lions, was another to impress with an unbeaten 185 against Sri Lanka A. He was part of Englands T20 squad against Sri Lanka earlier in the season and along with Duckett and Billings has a good chance of being involved for the T20 against Pakistan next month. The squad for that will be named towards the end of August.Players like Ben Duckett, Sam Billings and Dawid Malan have all been performing very well in the Lions - and James Vince, although hes not in this squad, remains in our plans. So theres three or four players there pushing for batting spots - I think thats incredibly healthy for English cricket, Whitaker said. Weve had a lot of confidence come out of our one-day team over the last 18 months, and this selection just emphasises how well theyve done. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

ARCADIA, Calif. Michael Raffl Flyers Jersey . -- Thoroughbred racings richest horse was ready to relax. Having just come off the track from a morning gallop in preparation for the Breeders Cup Classic, California Chrome rolled around in the large pit of sand Art Sherman created for his superstar behind the barn at Santa Anita.As you can see, he loves to play, the 79-year-old trainer said Wednesday. He loves to just roll and scratch his back.In the morning sunshine, California Chromes chestnut-colored coat shined like a copper penny.The 5-year-old with the flashy white markings will try to cap an undefeated year with a victory in Saturdays $6 million race. California Chrome is the early even-money favorite for the 1 \\-mile race, further confirmation of his status as racings rock star. His devoted fan base is known as Chromies.I feel some pressure from the Chromies because I dont want to disappoint them, said jockey Victor Espinoza, whose successful association with the horse helped land him on Dancing With the Stars.The durable horse that has taken Sherman on the ride of his life is 6-0 this year, having won his last two races by a combined 7 \\ lengths. California Chromes earnings of $13,432,650 make him the richest horse in North American history.I cant tell you what a thrill its been for me, especially the last two races, Sherman said. Sometimes I get spooky and think, `Wow, what happens if he lets him run? Victor said he wrapped up on him the last two races. Now were a fresh horse coming into the Breeders Cup, which is what I wanted.Under Shermans patient guidance, California Chrome has overcome volatile ownership and injuries since first making a name for himself by winning the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness.Those victories set up a Triple Crown try in the Belmont. California Chrome finished in a dead-heat for fourth. Co-owner Steve Coburn created controversy after the race, saying the system allowed fresh horses that hadnt run in the series earlier two legs to take the cowards way out.As a 4-year-old, California Chrome traveled thousands of miles to Dubai for the World Cup, where he finished second. Afterward, he was sent to England to run at Royal Ascot against Shermans wishes. But a bruised hoof kept him out of the race. He returned to the U.S. and X-rays revealed further bruising that ended his season early.Coburn sold his 30 percent interest in California Chrome last year to Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky, where the horse will eventually begin his stallion career.I have a lot of respect for Chrome, Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert said. Art has done a tremendous job of keeping him going.This year, California Chrome has returned to his winning ways. He again made the long journey to Dubai and won the $10 million World Cup along with another race there.Hes bigger, hes stronger. Hes an unbelievable athlete, Sherman said. Hes such a cool horse to be around, hes got such a personality.In a year in which all three winners of the Triple Crown races are already retired, California Chrome has met every challenge and continued to delight his fans and boost a beleaguered industry.Its amazing what Chrome does for the sport. He is the star, Espinoza said. He is as good now as hes ever been. He is on his toes. Hes ready to go.Sherman went by to check out Chromes biggest competition, 3-year-old Arrogate, the lightly raced 5-2 second choice trained by Baffert.I said, `Get tied on, you havent seen Chrome yet, he said. Here we go. The match race is on. Mark Streit Flyers Jersey . Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. Scott Laughton Flyers Jersey .

Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- Lewis Hamilton was nearly dealt a critical blow to his title chances on the opening lap of the Mexican Grand Prix when his Mercedes team considered pitting him from the lead.Hamilton locked his front right tyre into the first corner due to a glazed brake disc, resulting in him taking to the run off and cutting Turn 2 completely. He escaped a penalty from the stewards but the lock-up severely damaged his right front tyre with a flat spot.Mercedes were ready to pit Hamilton at the end of the first lap, but a safety car period for a collision between Pascal Wherlein and Marcus Ericsson gave the pit wall enough time to revaluate the situation.It was huge, Hamilton said. A massive flat spot and I honestly thought that I was going to have to come in. When I came out of the chicane I honestly thought I was coming in that lap and that was my race pretty much done. But they told me to stay out, the safety car came out and they felt that we could live with the vibration and it wouldnt damage the suspension. It was getting worse and worse even though I wasnt locking up any more. But I had to take a lot of precautions while trying to nurse the car to the 17th lap.Team boss Toto Wolff said the vibrations caused by the misshaped tyre llooked scary on the teams data. Bill Barber Jersey. With all the bad luck Lewis has had throughout the season, he got some of that back today, some of the good luck back, because he badly flat-spotted the tyre. The vibration matrix was scary from the beginning. We had quite a conversation on the radio about whether we should pit him for safety reasons.In any other race we would have pitted him and lost the race. We kept him out there in order to not throw away the championship for him. Every single lap, every single straight, we monitored the vibrations. Our team did a fantastic job in keeping that under control and then we pitted him a bit earlier because the vibration matrix was going sky high and a suspension failure could have easily happened.Hamilton made it to lap 17 with the flat spot before changing tyres, which Wolff said was crucial to staying on a winning strategy.That was the earliest we could have pitted him. Everything else would have destroyed the race. But honestly it was not a comfortable situation we found ourselves in there to make that call, weighing up the championship versus a failure of the suspension. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

The Olympian spent the day with 50 children from the organzation at an indoor adventure park in her hometown of Rockville, Maryland, where she played dodgeball, and signed autographs.As a young wrestler practicing at the Olympic training center in Colorado Springs, Co., Maroulis remembers what it was like to meet wrestlers and figures she looked up to as a child.Some of the older wrestlers, sometimes they [would] invite you to come sit at the table with them at the training center,?Maroulis said. I would be like oh my gosh they invited me, they notice me, thats so cool.?Maroulis awareness of her impact, given her status as an elite wrestler, has instilled a dedication to giving back -- something she committed to even before becoming the first American to win an Olympic gold medal in womens wrestling, this summer.I have been greatly affected by so many people, ?Maroulis said.
