wrapped after straining her hamstring in pract

NEW HAVEN, Conn. T. J. Logan Youth Jersey . -- Third-seeded Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., and four-time champion Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark both suffered straight-set upsets Wednesday in the second round of the Connecticut Open. Bouchard lost 6-2, 6-2 to Australian Samantha Stosur. The Canadian, ranked No. 8 in the world, played with her left thigh wrapped after straining her hamstring in practice this week. The injury left her visibly struggling with her mobility throughout the match. "Its obviously not ideal; Ive had to cut back a little bit on practice time, but I should be good to go pretty soon," she said. Bouchard said her personal trainer will join her in New York and said she does not expect the injury to have much of an impact on her performance at next weeks U.S. Open. Stosur, ranked No. 25 in the world, dominated the match, winning almost 70 per cent of the points on her serve, while breaking Bouchards serve twice in each set. "My serve is a weapon, and sometimes it doesnt act like that, so its important for me to really use that part of my game to my best advantage," said Stosur, who will play in her first quarterfinal since January. Wozniacki, the fourth seed, was beaten 6-4, 6-2 by Camila Giorgi of Italy. Giorgi, who also beat Wozniacki in last years U.S. Open, faced just two break points. Her first serves reached 117 mph and her second serves hovered around 107 mph. She consistently hit ground strokes at Wozniackis feet, preventing her from moving laterally. The 37th-ranked Giorgi broke Wozniackis serve in the first game of the match and twice in the second set. "I think today the serve was the key and really consistent," she said. It was the earliest exit at this tournament for Wozniacki, who has appeared in New Haven seven times. She won in each of her first four trips and lost in the semifinals in 2012 and 2013. Wozniacki is ranked No. 11 and was seeded fourth this year. But she also has been training to run the New York Marathon while keeping up a full tennis schedule. She said the cross-training has not been a problem, but acknowledged being tired on Wednesday. "I havent had a day off basically since I came to Montreal, so Ive been playing almost every day," she said. "The tank just wasnt full today and when you play a player like that you just dont get by with not moving 100 per cent." Giorgi will play Garbine Muguruza in the quarterfinals. Muguruza, ranked 26th in the world, needed three sets to dispatch qualifier Peng Shuai of China 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. Muguruza dropped the first two games of the final set, but won the next five games en route to the victory. "I was nervous because I didnt know what to do at that point," Muguruza said. "But I just said to myself, Just continue, because shes also going to get nervous or shes going to miss and not continue like this." Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium came from behind to beat Andrea Petkovic of Germany 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6) in a match that lasted 3 hours, 11 minutes. Petkovic served for the match twice in the second set at 5-4 and again at 6-5, but could not close out Flipkins. Flipkins also had a tough time ending the match. She led 6-3 in the final tiebreaker before winning on her fifth match point. "I had to fight for it," Flipkins said. "It was one of the best battles of my career." Just one seeded player, second-seed Petra Kvitova, has advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament. She won her second-round match on Tuesday and faces Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic on Thursday. The other quarterfinal has American Alison Riske against Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia.Budda Baker Womens Jersey . - The Clippers have signed guard Dahntay Jones to a second 10-day contract. Chad Williams Jersey . - Regan Smith had the checkered flag in sight at Daytona a year ago and a freight train of cars in his rearview mirror.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins take aim at a seventh straight victory on Saturday night as they battle the Buffalo Sabres for the second time in a week. Pittsburghs current winning streak, its longest since claiming seven straight from Dec. 9-21 of last season, includes a 5-0 win over Buffalo last Saturday. Marc-Andre Fleury made 18 saves in the shutout, Chris Kunitz had two goals and an assist and Evgeni Malkin finished with a goal and two helpers. Sidney Crosby added three assists to the Penguins fourth straight victory and 13 in their past 17 against the Sabres. Jhonas Enroth made 29 saves for the Sabres, who have dropped three in a row and five of six to the Pens at home. The win for Fleury began an impressive stretch for the netminder, who was coming off a shutout victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 30 and then signed a four-year, $23 million extension on Wednesday. Fleury, who had gotten the night off in a 4-1 win over Minnesota on Tuesday, returned to the net on Thursday and made 34 saves in a 4-3 shootout win over the Winnipeg Jets. He pushed his personal shutout streak to a career-high 164 minutes and 22 seconds before the Jets got one past him in the opening period. Malkin was held without a point for the first time in 12 games, but both he and Crosby scored in the shootout. Brandon Sutter had a goal and two asssists in regulation, with Steve Downie scoring once and assisting on a tally by Simon Despres. Budda Baker Jersey. I think both teams had their opportunities to win the game at different points, Crosby said. First period they carried the play, second we did, third and overtime was probably anybodys game. It was a pretty good hockey game, all in all. Pittsburgh has won the first two of a five-game road trip and Fleury should get the start again on Saturday. He is 16-5-2 with a 2.30 goals against average and .917 save percentage in his career versus Buffalo, with last Saturdays win his third career shutout against the club. The Sabres wrap a four-game homestand coming off their ninth victory in 11 games. They were bested 3-2 on Friday night by the Edmonton Oilers, with Michal Neuvirth needing to make a season-high 49 saves to keep it close. Matt Moulson scored his first goal of the season and Drew Stafford also tallied. We had a 2-1 lead in this game, but it wasnt enough if we dont compete, said Buffalo head coach Ted Nolan. Enroth, originally scheduled to start on Friday before Nolan made a switch, could go tonight instead and is 1-4-0 with a 3.12 GAA and .899 save percentage lifetime versus the Penguins. Neuvirth, who has made three starts in a row, is 2-1-2 with a 2.13 GAA, .926 save percentage and two shutouts versus the Pens. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

MONTREAL -- Claire Lavogez scored her tournament-leading third goal in the 53rd minute as France blanked New Zealand 4-0 on Saturday in group play at the FIFA U-20 Womens World Cup. Alex Anzalone Womens Jersey . Kadidiatou Diani opened the scoring for the French in the 22nd minute while Clarisse Le Bihan added goals in the 80th and 82nd. France (2-0-0), which is the European champion and leads the tournament in scoring with nine goals in two matches, currently sits first in Group D and is all but assured a spot in the quarter-finals. New Zealand (1-0-1) managed just four shots on goal, compared to Frances 17, and could only control the ball 39 per cent of the match. In the other Group D match, Jennifer Mora scored on a penalty in the 88th minute to lift Paraguay over Costa Rica 2-1. Silvana Romero opened the matches scoring in the fourth minute for Paraguay (1-0-1), which moved into a tie for second place in Group D with New Zealand.

Kehls goal came against the run of play in the 58th minute when he swept the ball over Freiburg goalkeeper Oliver Baumann from around 25 metres with his left foot. "We didnt really have any shots on goal. Dortmund neither -- apart from Kehls shot," Baumann said. "Its annoying, because we were holding our own." The result prevented Freiburg from escaping the relegation zone with a win. It would have been the clubs 100th home win in 500 Bundesliga games. Dortmund restored its 20-point gap behind runaway leader Bayern Munich. "Whoever wins these sorts of games becomes champion, but that doesnt apply (this season)," Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp joked, referring to Bayerns unprecedented form. Both Dortmund and Freiburg cancelled each other out in a first half of few real threats, and there werent many more chances in the second. "It was a lucky win for us. You have to say that," Doortmund defender Mats Hummels said. Alex Anzalone Saints Jersey. Dortmunds Sokratis was fortunate to escape with just a yellow card at the end of the first when he appeared to take down the surging Philipp Zulechner. "If he showed a card at all, it should be red as he was the last defender," Zulechner said. Mainz drew 1-1 at home with Hertha Berlin in Sundays late game, a result that cost both sides the chance to climb into the European qualification places. Hertha goalkeeper Thomas Kraft made a series of key interventions as the home side came closest to scoring in the first half. Adrian Ramos put the visitors ahead in the 51st, when Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting lost the ball to Per Skjelbred, who set up the Colombian striker to shoot inside the far post. Choupo-Moting atoned in the 65th with a well-struck penalty, conceded when Sami Allagui brought down Koo Ja-Cheol. "We made unnecessary mistakes in the first half but improved in the second," said Hertha coach Jos Luhukay, whose side remains ninth, two points behind seventh-placed Mainz. "Were happy with the point." 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 ' ' '

OAKLAND, Calif. Marcel Schmelzer Jersey . -- Stephen Curry had 25 points and eight assists, helping Golden State build a 19-point first-quarter lead before sitting out the final 12 minutes of the Warriors 113-95 win over the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night. David Lee added 17 points and nine rebounds, while Klay Thompson had 14 points for the Warriors, who have won five straight over the Pistons. Curry scored 12 points as part of a 19-4 run in the third quarter then sat out the entire fourth quarter when Golden State coach Mark Jackson emptied his bench. Detroits Andre Drummond had 16 points and 14 rebounds for his second straight double-double and fourth in seven games. The Warriors had lost the final two games on their recent road trip before opening a three-game home stand by blowing out the Pistons. Golden State led by as many as 29 points, shot 60 per cent for the game and outrebounded Detroit 43-34. That helped offset 23 turnovers, 22 of them over the final three quarters.

hes with 51 strikes. "An outstanding outing,

DUNEDIN, Fla. Malik Hooker Womens Jersey . -- John Gibbons asked for strike-throwers and Drew Hutchison obliged Friday. The 23-year-old right-hander, continuing to make a strong case to become Torontos fourth starter, threw 4 2/3 strong innings in the Blue Jays 3-1 exhibition loss to the Boston Red Sox. Hutchison, who was tagged with the loss, gave up one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and no walks. He retired the first eight Red Sox he faced and threw 71 pitches with 51 strikes. "An outstanding outing," said Jays catcher Dioner Navarro. "A great performance," echoed Gibbons, who nevertheless was coy on what might lie ahead for Hutchison. Pressed by reporters, Gibbons allowed: "Hes doing everything he needs to do." Hutchison returned from Tommy John surgery last fall, pitching in the Arizona Fall League. He seems on top of his game this spring. Hutchison showed his mettle in the fourth inning Friday, striking out Mike Napoli to end the inning after a lengthy at-bat that saw the Red Sox hitter foul off a number of pitches. The Jays pitcher hit 95 miles per hour during the confrontation. "Hes got more than I thought he did," said Gibbons. "And he can pop it up pretty good -- with command. Which makes the guys that are really good really good." This spring Hutchison has given up three runs and seven hits in 9 2/3 innings while striking out 16 and walking one. Opposing batters are hitting just .200 against him. Hutchison made 11 starts for the Jays in 2012 (going 5-3 with a 4.60 ERA) before injuring his arm while warming up in the bullpen for a game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Throwing strikes is his modus operandi. "Thats what he does. He was good when he was here the first time before he got hurt," said Gibbons. "Thats how he pitches. The key is just being healthy." The same can be said for J.A. Happ, another would-be starter who returned Friday from an ailing back. The six-foot-six left-hander pronounced himself happy with a three-inning performance in a minor-league game. He gave up one hit, walked one and struck out two. "It was good. Exciting," said Happ. "I felt normal out there which is really nice." Said Gibbons: "I heard he pitched really well." A gaggle of pitchers is trying to join R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle and Brandon Morrow in the Jays rotation. Barring a trade, Nos. 4 and 5 will come from Hutchison, Happ, Ricky Romero, Esmil Rogers, Todd Redmond, Kyle Drabek, Marcus Stroman and Sean Nolin. Of the three main contenders, Hutchison appears to have pitched his way into the rotation. Romero is turning heads with his improved performance this spring. But Happ has had an uneasy pre-season. In two starts, he has given up six runs in just 1 1/3 innings. The back issue has further muddied the waters. Gibbons, who had yet to speak to Happ following the minor-league outing, said the major issue was making sure Happs back was healthy. Happ, in speaking to reporters, said the back was fine. The lines of communication within the Jays on Happ seem a little blurry in general. The pitcher seemed unhappy with GM Alex Anthopoulos answer late last week on whether there were one or two spots open in the starting rotation. "There could be two," Anthopoulos said at the time." I think were going to take the best team north. Especially right now, we have J.A. (Happ) and the back, the performance, things like that, we have to get him on track, stay healthy. "Obviously R.A., Mark and Brandon. Again, we expect J.A. to be in the rotation but at the same time the backs flared up on him twice. I just dont know. Look, if guys perform well and they force our hand, well take the best team." Asked on Friday if he had something to prove in the wake of those words, Happ replied: "I dont have any comment on that. My comment is no comment. "That was probably disappointing to hear but theres nothing I want to say about it." Happ has campaigned to be a starter since arriving here via trade and the issue appears to have left a chip on his shoulder. Last spring he found himself on the outside of the rotation looking in, until Romero pitched his way out of it. Happ eventually went 5-7 with a 4.56 ERA in 18 starts last year in a season disrupted by a nasty setback. Hit in the head by a ball off the bat of Desmond Jennings in a May game with the Tampa Bay Rays, he was out for three months with a skull fracture and a sprained right knee from when he toppled to the ground. While the Red Sox didnt bring all of their starters Friday, their lineup did included Mike Carp, Napoli and Jonny Gomes in the meat of the order. Boston finally got to Hutchison in the fifth. Gomes singled and came home on Corey Browns double to deep centre. The relay throw by Ryan Goins was a little high, allowing Gomes to score. The Red Sox added two more in the eighth before Jonathan Diaz scored on a Kevin Pillar double in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead to 3-1. Boston starter Clay Buchholz was also impressive, holding the Jays scoreless on two hits in four innings. After giving up two singles to open the first inning, he retired 11 straight for the win. The 29-year-old right-hander went 9-0 with a 1.71 earned-run average ERA in his first 12 starts last season before going on the disabled list for more than three months with shoulder and neck problems. He returned in September, finishing with a 12-1 mark and 1.74 ERA. The loss was the third straight for Toronto, which slipped to 6-9. Boston improved to 7-8. The game drew a sellout of 5,519 on a sunny 20 C day at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Zach Banner Colts Jersey .

BERLIN -- Son Heung-mins second half strike was enough for Bayer Leverkusen to win 1-0 at Borussia Moenchengladbach and consolidate second place in the Bundesliga on Friday. Kemar Lawrence Jersey . Son scored in the 62nd minute, when he let fly from outside the penalty area to send the ball inside the top right corner. Three Gladbach defenders failed to close down the South Korean. "There werent many goal chances. The game was going to be decided on a mistake and unfortunately we made it," Moenchengladbach captain Martin Stranzl said. Max Kruse was denied an equalizer by Bernd Leno in the 77th, three minutes before the Leverkusen keeper kept out another attempt by Juan Arango. Two Leverkusen substitutes, one in each half, were booked for slowing down play. "Theres still room for improvement," Leverkusen captain Simon Rolfes said. "Other teams will get better as well." Leverkusen was 10 points behind league leader Bayern Munich before the rest of the weekends games, while Moenchengladbach remained provisionally fifth after its third defeat in a row since the winter break. "Its a pity. A scoreless draw would have been fair," said Moenchengladbach coach Lucien Favre, whose side hasnt won in five games. "We have one or two things to correct. Well see. I have to turn it around." Bayern can restore its 13-point advantage with a win at Nuremberg on Saturday. Lloyd Sam Jersey .com) - Real Madrid claimed its 20th consecutive win across all competitions by cruising to a 4-1 victory at Almeria on Friday. Manolo Sanchez Jersey .

The Rock acquired Merrill in a blockbuster trade in August from the New England Black Wolves (formerly the Philadelphia Wings) for a combination of players and draft picks. The runner-up for NLL Transition Player of the Year in 2014, had one-year remaining on his previous contract. The extension has him under contract through to the 2018 season. The contract gives me a chance to get settled for the long term and hopefully the rest of my career, said an excited Merrill. It is nice to have that commitment and put it behind me and just focus on playing and contributing. Merrill has also chosen to wear the number 37 with the Toronto Rock. He will wear the number in honour of good friend and former teammate Kyle Miller who wore it in Junior Lacrosse while the two played together in OOrangeville. Gonzalo Veron Red Bulls Jersey. Kyle passed away in 2013 after a long battle with cancer and is also the brother of Rock goaltender Brandon Miller. The number also pays homage to another close friend of Merrills that lost his battle with cancer in 2012, Chris Sanderson. I have worn 17 my entire career but it is obviously not available here, explained Merrill. I gave it a lot of thought. To me, it is a combination between Chris Sanderson who wore 17 and Kyle Miller who wore both 35 and 37. The number has great meaning to me. Every time I put on that jersey, it will be a reminder of their legacy and what they meant to me. The two-time winner of the NLL Transition Player of the Year Award was one of three major additions to Torontos defensive corps over the off-season. Toronto has increased their depth and size on defence with the additions of Merrill, Jeff Gilbert (free agent) and Brock Sorensen (trade with Minnesota). Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

full of opinions and an outsized personality, Fregosi coul

ATLANTA -- Jim Fregosis big league career got off to a real quiet start. Tarik Cohen Youth Jersey . His first three at-bats, as a teenager for the expansion Los Angeles Angels, he hit grounders back to perennial Gold Glove pitcher Jim Kaat. Over the next half-century, Fregosi made a lot more noise in majors. Fregosi, a six-time All-Star shortstop who went to manage the Angels to their first playoff appearance and guide the rowdy 1993 Philadelphia Phillies into the World Series, died Friday after an apparent stroke. He was 71. Popular on and off the field, full of opinions and an outsized personality, Fregosi could argue with the best of em. He could also laugh at himself, and would poke fun at his part in one of baseballs most-lopsided trades -- the deal that sent him to the New York Mets for a young, wild pitcher named Nolan Ryan. The Atlanta Braves said they were notified by a family member that Fregosi died early Friday in Miami, where he was hospitalized after the apparent stroke while on a cruise with baseball alumni. Fregosi ended more than 50 years in baseball as a special assistant to Braves general manager Frank Wren. "Jim played a vital role in our club over the last 13 years," Wren said Friday. "As a senior adviser he was someone you could always pick up the phone and get a feel for the players in the game. He covered all 30 teams for us and was such a positive, knowledgeable resource. He lit up a room and had just great relationships throughout the game. "When I first became GM, one of the things that made the transition so easy was having Jim as close as a phone call for advice and help or encouragement." Braves president John Schuerholz said the team would find a way to honour Fregosi this season. "He gave a lot to the game no matter what uniform he was in, no matter whether he was a player, a coach or a scout," Schuerholz said. "Some people say he could have managed again right now. He was so smart and knew the game so well. I agree with that." Schuerholz said Fregosi "didnt grow into this personality. I think he was born with it. I think he had that personality when he was born." Along with the Phillies and Angels -- where he was reunited with Ryan and made the playoffs in 1979 -- Fregosi managed the Chicago White Sox and Toronto. He took over the White Sox in the middle of the 1986 season after Tony La Russa was fired, and was hired by the Blue Jays after manager Tim Johnson was dismissed during spring training in 1999 for lying about his military service record. Phillies president David Montgomery said the team and others in baseball "lost a dear friend." "Hell be remembered for his vibrant personality, wisdom and love of the game," Montgomery said in a statement. "Our deepest sympathy is extended to his widow, Joni, daughters Nikki, Lexy and Jennifer and sons Robert and Jim." Giants general manager Brian Sabean said Fregosis death "leaves a hole in the unique fabric of our great game. He was a great friend and mentor to so many, no matter what hat he wore." "He was a one-of-a-kind baseball lifer," he said. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig spoke of Fregosis widespread relationships in the game. "The outpouring of support in recent days illustrates the vast respect that Jim earned in a great baseball life," Selig said in a statement. Fregosi was an infielder in the majors from 1961 to 1978, hitting .265 with 151 homers and 706 RBIs. His best seasons came with the Angels. From 1964-69, he teamed with second baseman Bobby Knoop to form a strong double-play combination. They played together in the 1966 All-Star game. Knoop, now an Angels coach, said Fregosi was the kind of guy who "would not have a tattoo, but would cover your back. He was a tremendous person who had tremendous passion for the game and loved the Angels." The Angels retired Fregosis No. 11 in 1988 and said he was a personal favourite of former owner Gene Autry. "His personality was infectious, his love of the game legendary, and his knowledge endless," the team said in a statement. Fregosi was traded from the Angels to the Mets after the 1971 season for a package of players that included Ryan. Fregosi played just 146 games over two seasons for the Mets and hit .233 with five home runs; Ryan turned into a Hall of Fame pitcher. Fregosi later played for the Texas Rangers and Pittsburgh Pirates. He began his managing career at 36 with the Angels in April 1978 -- two days after his final game as a player with the Pirates. In 15 seasons as a manager, he posted a 1,028-1,094 record. With the Phillies, Fregosi handled a team that included a lot of rough-and-tumble players and helped them reach the 1993 World Series. Philadelphia was beaten by Toronto on Joe Carters winning home run in Game 6. Former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton called Fregosi "the best manager Ive ever played for." "Our relationship was so special ... and he was the one that taught me how to be a leader," Daulton said. "Fregos and I could relate to each other whether we were in the clubhouse or on the field. In 1993 The City of Brotherly Love changed the world ... Fregos was the driving force!" Lenny Dykstra, a Phillies star in those days, said Fregosi "was a players manager." "Jim Fregosi was the reason that 1993 was one of the most exciting years in Philadelphia sports history," he said. James Louis Fregosi was born in 1942 in San Francisco and excelled in baseball, football basketball and track and field at Serra High School. He signed with the Boston Red Sox out of high school and went to the Angels in the 1960 expansion draft.  Mitchell Trubisky Jersey .

s required or justified." An investigation looked at a lar

LONDON -- The head of the English Premier League will face no disciplinary action for making disparaging comments about women in a private email exchange with a friend. Jayson Tatum White Jersey . A Premier League committee met to consider the matter involving its chief executive Richard Scudamore in London on Monday, with British Prime Minister David Cameron among the high-profile critics of his conduct. However, Peter McCormick, acting chairman of the Premier League, said in a statement that the leagues 17 clubs -- not including the three relegated teams -- "resolved unanimously that no further disciplinary action is required or justified." An investigation looked at a large quantity of emails and other documents sent by Scudamore and found there was "no evidence of wider discriminatory attitudes or inappropriate language or a general attitude of disrespect to women." Praising Scudamores "previously unblemished record over 15 years of service to the Premier League," McCormick added in the statement that women working for the Premier League said there was "no climate of disrespect of women in the workplace." Scudamore, who has brokered the deals that have turned the Premier League into the most lucrative and popular division in world football, issued an apology immediately after a British newspaper published parts of the leaked emails. In a statement released on Monday, he accepted that "entering into email exchanges of this nature was wrong" and "is something that will never be repeated." "I appreciate that I have a tremendous amount of hard work to do to convince those in the game who do not know me that my leadership and work in the areas of equality and discrimination to date reflect who I am and what I believe," he said. Scudamore pledged he will continue to do his utmost "personally, and through all the Premier Leagues means, to help promote diversity and inclusion, develop the womens game and support women who want be involved in football at any level." Jayson Tatum Youth Jersey .J. -- Pete Carroll said it was the suspension of linebacker Bruce Irvin last spring that finally got the attention of the rest of the Seattle Seahawks that they needed to be taking their commitment to the team more seriously. Jayson Tatum Womens Jersey . -- D.A. Points was disqualified Friday from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for using a training device while waiting to play the 18th hole at Pebble Beach.After falling out of a playoff position earlier in the month, the Leafs have managed to turn things around with a familiar formula: Top-end scoring and stand-out goaltending.

ng out Sundays 1-0 defeat to Liverpool

Wayne Rooney is expected to be out for the next three weeks due to a cut on his forehead, Manchester United manager David Moyes said. Dan Feeney Jersey . Rooney sustained the injury in training after a collision with teammate Phil Jones, and he will likely miss Englands upcoming World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Ukraine. "The cut is right down the middle of his forehead where it takes a wee while to heal," Moyes said. "Probably [he will be out for] three weeks. Phil Jones lifted his boot and caught him right down the middle of his forehead." After sitting out Sundays 1-0 defeat to Liverpool, Rooney now faces a race to be fit in time for Uniteds showdown with Manchester City on Sept. 22. Rooney also missed a large portion of the preseason because of hamstring and shoulder problems. Rayshawn Jenkins Womens Jersey . Off-Season Game Plan looks at the Capitals possible summer plans, with the understanding that its tough to plot a direction without a general manager or head coach around which to set those expectations. Dan Feeney Youth Jersey . 17.A string of English Premier League teams, most in the lower end of the standings, has been linked to the 32-year-old forward but most have seemingly balked at the cost given his wages and transfer fee. MONTREAL -- Rookie Matt Fraser got to live a dream he had many times while growing up in Red Deer, Alta. Fraser, called up Wednesday from AHL Providence and playing his first career NHL playoff game, scored 1:19 into overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens to even their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Thursday night. The 23-year-old jumped into a scramble in front of goalie Carey Prices net and slid the puck under him into the net. "It was bouncing around and I was just swatting at it as hard as I could and hoping it would hit something," said Fraser. "Price is such a good goalie. He doesnt give out a lot of rebounds. I might have got lucky there, but the puck wound up in the back of the net. "Its something I dreamed about many times on the outdoor rinks growing up. Its every kids dream to score in overtime." Johnny Boychuks point shot had taken a high hop off the end boards and Price and defenceman Mike Weaver had trouble controlling the bouncing puck. "It came around on the other side and it bounced over my stick and I lost it," said Price. "Somebody yelled over, so I looked over my left shoulder. Obviously it wasnt there. Then they poked it in on the other side." The victory knotted the best-of-seven series at 2-2, and the Bruins took back home ice advantage heading into Game 5 on Saturday night in Boston. The Bruins outshot Montreal 34-33 in an intense, sometimes nervously played game that was less a goaltending duel between Price and Tuukka Rask as a match of determined, defensive teams. "We knew how tight this series would be," said Boston coach Claude Julien. "It doesnt mean any more than that weve tied the series. Its been tight every game. "It was important to get back in the series, but I dont think weve played our best hockey. Weve played hard, but Ive seen us play better. You hope the win here will help us get better and well go from there." Asked about Rasks play, Julien said: "He was good. We didnt give up three breakaways, that helped." They gave up a partial breakaway in the second period, but Brian Gionta could only shovel the puck at the net and Rask made the save. Canadiens coach Michel Therrien called it trench warfare. He found no fault with his side, either, except that they didnt get a puck past RRask. Mike Williams Jersey. "This was a hard-nosed game between two well-prepared teams," he said. "We lost a battle in front of the net on the winning goal, but Im pleased with our teams effort. "All the games have been close and it wont be different next game." There were 21 goals scored by both teams in the first three games, there had not been a period without a goal, but there was little room to move in this one. It marked the first time since 1935 that Boston won a playoff game 1-0 in OT and the first time Boston and Montreal went scoreless in regulation time in the playoffs since 1953, when Elmer Lach got the OT game-winner for the Canadiens. Bostons Carl Soderberg had the best chance in the final minute of the first frame after P.K. Subbans blind back pass was intercepted, but Price looked to get a piece of it as it went off the cross-bar. Another goal-less period followed as shooters misfired, particularly Max Pacioretty on a setup from Thomas Vanek, and both goalies held their ground. Each team went on the power play once, but even that failed to break the deadlock. The Canadiens went on the attack in the third, peppering the Boston net and outshooting the Bruins 14-7. But the Bruins got a power play and Reilly Smith hit a goalpost, only to see Brian Gionta stoned by Rask alone in front of the net at the other end a moment later. Then Fraser ended it in OT. "Words cant even describe that feeling," said Fraser. "I just watched the replay of it and I dont even want to begin to try to explain that because its something I wish that every kid could feel." Fraser skated on Bostons third line with Soderberg and Loui Eriksson and got 14:44 of ice time and two shots on goal. Julien liked what he saw. "It was no doubt a little nerve-wracking for him but to me it didnt show on the ice," said Julien. "He was poised, made some good decisions, he was strong with the puck and in his decision-making. "We were talking about him and I said hes been really good for us tonight and there was no doubt he was going to play in overtime." Notes: Fraser played in place of Jordan Caron. Matt Bartkowski stepped in on defence for Andrej Meszaros. . . Montreal made no changes. . . Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr attended the game. 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 ' ' '

s series in thrilling fashion on Tuesday, as Ichiro S

(Sports Network) - The New York Yankees hope to continue their home mastery of the Texas Rangers this evening when the two clubs continue their three-game set from Yankee Stadium. Tiago Splitter Jersey . Catch all the action live on TSN2 at 7pm et/4pm pt. New York won the opener of this series in thrilling fashion on Tuesday, as Ichiro Suzuki hit a solo homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Yankees to a 4-3 triumph. Tanner Scheppers (5-1), who pitched a scoreless eighth, stayed on to pitch the ninth. After Brett Gardner was caught stealing for the second out, Suzuki smacked a 1-2 pitch over the wall in right. "Its a great win for us," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Coming off an off day and being able to beat a pretty great pitcher. I think its a pretty big win." Gardner, Jayson Nix and Travis Hafner also hit solo homers for the Yankees, who have won three of four overall and beat the Rangers for the 16th time in their last 21 meetings in the Bronx. New York starter Hiroki Kuroda allowed three runs -- two earned -- on five hits while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings. Mariano Rivera (1-1) tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up the win. Leonys Martin hit a pair of solo homers for the Rangers, who had a five-game winning streak stopped. Mitch Moreland added an RBI. Texas starter Yu Darvish gave up three runs on seven hits while striking out six over 5 1/3 innings. "They swung the bat to beat us," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "You hate to loss a ball game. They beat us with four swings of the bat, four solo home runs." On Wednesday New York will rely on veteran left-hander Andy Pettitte, who has lost his last two starts since earning career win No. 250. Pettitte lost to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, as he was hit for five runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings to fall to 5-5 to go along with a 4.20 ERA. "I just need to be better," Pettitte said afterward. "I need to shut these guys down once in a while and give us a chance to score first one time instead of always being in a hole. And I feel like Im putting us in a hole every time out right now." Pettitte has faced the Rangers 23 times and is 11-9 against them with a 5.24 ERA. Texas, meanwhile, will counter with righty Justin Grimm, who is 6-5 with a 6.57 ERA. Grimm beat the Oakland Athletics last Wednesday, holding them to three runs and three hits in five innings. Grimm, who has never faced the Yankees, could be in some trouble on Wednesday, as he has pitched to a 7.01 ERA in seven road starts. Matt Bonner Spurs Jersey .Brothers B.J. and Justin Upton each homered and had an outfield assist, and the Braves held on for a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night. David Lee Jersey . Among the six changes: Drivers are now eligible if they have competed for 30 or more years in NASCAR or turned 55 in the calendar year before nominating day. Previously, drivers were not eligible until they had been retired for three years, so drivers can continue to compete and still reach the hall. DAVIE, Fla. -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. "Thats right," offensive line coach Jim Turner hollered. "Nice short first step." The Dolphins hope McKinnies arrival Tuesday marks a big step in the right direction for a team reeling from pass-protection problems. They acquired the 12th-year pro Monday from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a conditional late-round draft pick. "Hes a heck of a player," said tackle Jonathan Martin, whose role likely will be affected by the trade. "Anytime you bring in a guy like that, its going to make you better." McKinnie might not be ready for Sundays game at New England, or even the Halloween game against Cincinnati. But barring sudden, dramatic improvement by right tackle Tyson Clabo, McKinnie is expected to move into the starting lineup eventually. He likely would assume his customary spot at left tackle, with Martin moving from the left side to right tackle as Clabos replacement. McKinnie practiced only on the left side Tuesday, and while Clabo and Martin remained with the first team, Martin worked some on the right. "Its a decision the GM and the coaching staff thought they had to make," Martin said. "You can approach this two different ways. You can go in the tank and be one of those guys that moans and is a cancer in the locker room, or you can be a professional and play as hard as you can. My mindset is Im going to go out there and do whatever I can to help the team win." The 34-year-old McKinnie, who played for the Miami Hurricanes and spends offseasons in South Florida, said he looked forward to helping the Dolphins. "It feels good to be back here and get a chance to play in front of people who saw me play in college -- and to be in my own bed," he said. McKinnie has had off-the-field issues in South Florida in the past, and was involved iin the "Love Boat" scandal in 2005 while with the Minnesota Vikings. Bruce Bowen Jersey. He acknowledged his reputation for partying. "Thats when Im off," he said. "See, thats Big Mac during the off-season. Bryant McKinnie is the person who comes to work and handles his business. Thats who youll get right now." Coach Joe Philbin, who stresses the need for his players to have good character, said McKinnie will be judged on what he does at the Dolphins complex. "Im concerned about what he does in this building," Philbin said. "I dont mandate what people do outside the building. I expect him to be a professional, just like all the other guys." The trade means McKinnie now works for his former girlfriend, tennis champion Venus Williams. She and her sister Serena own a small share of the Dolphins. "Venus texted me and said she had a lot to do with the trade," McKinnie said with a laugh. "And then Serena hit me up and said to refer to her as boss now." McKinnie, a Pro Bowl tackle in 2009, lost his starting job after five games this season and was inactive for the first time in his career the past two weeks. He recently had his right knee drained and said its fine now. The 6-foot-8 McKinnie, one of the largest players in the NFL, weighed in at 364 pounds and said he hopes to play at about 355. His newly issued No. 78 practice jersey was too small to cover his midsection. The Dolphins (3-3) are desperate for better pass protection. During their current three-game losing streak, theyve given up 12 sacks, and Ryan Tannehill leads the NFL with 26. McKinnie declined to predict how soon he might play, as did Philbin. But guard Richie Incognito, who was traded by the St. Louis Rams during the 2009 season, predicted McKinnie would be ready for the Patriots on Sunday. "No question I think he can do that," Incognito said. "I showed up on a Thursday in Buffalo and started Sunday, so it has been done before."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 ' ' '

a nationwide media panel. Florida State, a

New York, NY - Alabama and Florida State remained the top two teams in the latest Associated Press college football poll, but Baylor and Ohio State swapped places as the four are still the lone remaining unbeatens in the power conferences. Jalen Reeves-Maybin Lions Jersey . Alabama, coming off a 20-7 win at Mississippi State on Saturday, held on to its firm grasp atop the poll. The Crimson Tide received 55 first-place votes and a total of 1,495 points from a nationwide media panel. Florida State, after its second straight 59-3 victory in as many weeks, kept the second spot and picked up two additional first-place votes. The Seminoles, who will close the regular season with a visit from Idaho and a trip to Florida, earned five No. 1 tallies and 1,445 total points. Baylor moved up one spot to third, while Ohio State dipped one place to fourth. Both had easy victories on Saturday, as the Bears continued to pile up the points in a 63-34 victory over Texas Tech and the Buckeyes pummeled Illinois, 60-35. Oregon inched up one spot to fifth and again controls its own destiny for a berth in the Pac-12 title game after Stanfords loss to USC on Saturday. The Ducks are followed by Auburn, Clemson, Missouri, Texas A&M and Stanford. The Cardinal couldnt build off the victory against Oregon and dropped a 20-17 decision at Southern California, tumbling five spots from No. 5. The second 10 consists of Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Michigan State, UCLA, Fresno State, Wisconsin, UCF, LSU, Arizona State and Northern Illinois. Fresno State and Northern Illinois are also undefeated. UCF dropped two spots from 15th after a narrow escape at Temple on Saturday. Louisville, Oklahoma, USC, Ole Miss and Duke are the last five teams ranked. USC, Ole Miss and Duke are this weeks newcomers. The resurgent Trojans, under interim coach Ed Orgeron, havent been ranked since the first poll of the regular season, while the Rebels were ranked for four weeks in September. Duke, meanwhile, is ranked for the first time since the final poll of the 1994 season. The Blue Devils, after a 48-30 win over then-No. 24 Miami-Florida on Saturday, are in control of their own destiny in the ACC Coastal Division. Miami, ranked No. 7 just three weeks ago, fell out of the poll after its third straight loss. Texas and Georgia also dropped out. The Longhorns were 23rd and fell to Oklahoma State, while the Bulldogs were No. 25 and lost a heartbreaker at Auburn on a 73-yard deflected touchdown pass on 4th-and-18 in the final minute. Next weeks schedule features four ranked matchups, including a huge Pac-12 South showdown between Arizona State and UCLA at the Rose Bowl. Missouri, which needs two wins to capture the SEC East and a berth in the conference title game, starts its quest at Ole Miss, and LSU hosts Texas A&M.

n Friday night. "It was great to see o

PHILADELPHIA -- So much for Miamis losing streak. Marshawn Lynch Jersey . LeBron James & Co. were back in business in a big way. James had 21 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds to help the Miami Heat snap a three-game skid and beat the Philadelphia 76ers 101-86 on Friday night. "It was great to see our energy from the beginning, basically, to the end," James said. "Thats what we are. We cant be nobody else. Weve got to be us." Being themselves has worked out fine for the Heat. The two-time defending NBA champions avoided their first four-game losing streak since March 2011. The Heat had dropped games at New York, Brooklyn and Washington. They had no trouble in their second game against the Sixers. They led by 25 and atoned for a 114-110 loss to Philadelphia in October. Chris Bosh scored 25 points and Norris Cole and Shane Battier had 13 points. "We didnt do everything perfect," coach Eric Spoelstra said. He could have fooled the Sixers. Tony Wroten led Philadelphia with 13 points and Spencer Hawes had 10 points and 10 rebounds. The Sixers missed 18 of 20 3-pointers and had 23 turnovers. James was stretched, twisted and massaged in the locker room, headphones on, and glued to the Sixers recent win over Charlotte on the big screen. About an hour before tip, he hardly seemed concerned the losing streak would hit four. "Its a long season, man," he said. "Every now and then, you just need to refocus." They found moments of clarity against the Sixers. At one point, Philadelphia used a lineup of Wroten, Dewayne Dedmon, Hollis Thompson, Brandon Davies and Elliot Williams. That rotation wont win too many games. It never stood a chance against the Heat. Back in October, the Sixers made their first 11 shots and raced to leads of 19-0 and 26-4, putting the champs on their heels a night after they received their rings. "It seems 1,000 years ago," Sixers coach Brett Brown. It was also the highlight of a season that has the Sixers tumbling toward the bottom of the Eastern Conference -- which has been the plan all along as the franchise tries to gobble lottery picks and rebuild. Its why Brown has a four-year contract and a promise of patience from ownership. But that win against the Heat still danced in their heads until tip. "They were able to beat an NBA champion and you cant take it away from them," Brown said. No, but they sure couldnt do it again. The Heat scored 17 seconds into the game, raced to a 12-point lead in the first quarter and never looked back. James brought what had to be about 10,000 Heat fans to their feet with a rim-rattling dunk in transition. Bosh scored 15 in the first half and Battier hit three 3s. The Sixers? Well, they missed 12 of 13 3-point attempts in the first half and committed 10 turnovers. They never led. They rested their starters and played all subs in the fourth. "They earned the right to keep trying to make a push for it," Hawes said. James crushed Davies in a 1-on-1 mismatch late in the fourth, burying a string of mid-range jumpers to stretch the lead to 20. Bosh-to-James for the alley-oop made it 96-79. His left shoulder was heavily wrapped in ice after the game to nurse a hard hit suffered against the Wizards. Dwyane Wade, who missed the first game against the Sixers, scored eight points on his 32nd birthday. He missed the first Sixers game because it was the second game on back-to-back nights. Hell sit out Saturdays game at Charlotte. "We know how to fix it," Wade said. "Sometimes, it takes you going through certain things to fix it." James posted a collage of photos on his Instagram account as part of a birthday tribute to his friend and teammate. "Happy Bday to my running mate, homie, brother, and most of all straight up friend!" James wrote. "The friendship weve created our rookie year at pre draft camp was pure and thats why we stuck together from that point on! Obviously didnt know we would eventually become teammates and do the things weve done so far. I came to Miami for 2 reasons.

punching their ticket to Brazil

Andros Townsend is Englands new brightest star. Kevin King Womens Jersey .   Needing two wins in their final two matches in World Cup qualifying, it was a previously uncapped 22-year-old pacing England to consecutive victories. Townsend was great, not necessarily the difference-maker, but certainly the top player on the field in Englands back-to-back wins over Montenegro and Poland, punching their ticket to Brazil.   There have been articles and columns downplaying the significance of his contributions, citing a lack of quality opposition as the catalyst for success. Others have scoffed at his long-term prospects of being a lynchpin for country, pointing to other young English players showing promise, only to stumble in their respective club and international careers. Such questions are fine to ask, but do little to acknowledge the quality of the player on an all-important stage over the last week.   Townsend was fearless for England, as he has been for Spurs to start the season. His confidence on the ball and willingness to take on defenders on the dribble using his size and pace are reminiscent of a young Steve McManaman trotting down the wing. England has been without the combination of requisite size and pace with ability for far too long. The left wing has been an abyss. And the right wing, with David Beckham taking the position for the better part of 15 years up until 2009, the national team lacked a player able to get into advanced positions, equally being a scoring threat ,as well as a danger in distribution. Its been just two games for Townsend, but the signal of intent by the player and the willingness of the manager to deploy him in such important matches suggests that, if Roy Hodgson can find similar players ahead of Brazil, England may have some actual substance heading into the FIFA World Cup.   So who is Andros Townsend? Although only 22, Townsend is a player who has risen to prominence in recent months. Getting to a position to warrant consideration for the national team hasnt come easy. Townsend has been sent out on nine loan-spells before finally securing first team club football at Tottenham. Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas handed Townsend a starting role from the get-go this season in a squad rich with midfield talent. Townsend has rewarded his manager, second in the Premier League in shots (26) through Matchday 7 (Townsend has played in six games,) despite not scoring a goal. His goal against Montenegro and constant direct play speaks to his initiative. And the argument can be made even when Theo Walcott is once again fit, Townsend provides a more complete, better suited option than the Arsenal man.   After years of bouncing around the lower leagues of England, including loans of varying degrees of success in the League Championship, Townsend received his first extended look in the Premier League with his former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp at QPR after a January loan move earlier this year. Townsend was bright in spells, scoring two goals for QPR in an otherwise disastrous relegation season at Loftus Road. It was this experience, albeit a trying one, which showed Townsend had the quality to become a Premier League footballer.   Townsends form thus far this season has gone above and beyond expectations of a young player competing for minutes at a top club. A regular spot is far from a certainty at Spurs with Aaron Lennon in the squad and Argentine Erik Lamela competing for a spot, albeit in a different attacking role. It all depends on formation. Townsend has made his case as best option, completing 87 per cent of passes and giving necessary width to a team with muscle and creativity in the middle of the park.    There is no way AVB banked on Townsend being a preferred option in his summer plans. There are no guarantees a young player returning from a loan move can be a steady and reliable option. AVB hasnt only found that in Townsend, but left back Danny Rose as well, returning from a year at Sunderland. Although the decision to send out players like Townsend and Rose have provided initial returns, therein is the predicament facing top clubs in the Premier League: how best to develop young players with the long-term in mind while attempting to maintain a competitive balance over the short-term.   At present time, loaning out players to get experience is preferable in most cases to allowing players remain at the club and compete for limited squad positions. To some, loan moves are a product of complacency and lack of commitment to proper development - Take my player and give him playing time and, hopefully by the time he returns, Ill have use for him – or similar mindsets are hardly the pathway to achieving sustainable development for young players. It reeks of laziness. Instead, many around the game advocate big clubs establish ‘B teams in lower divisions of English football. The caveat is none of these ‘B teams can ever receive promotion to the top flight. This model has been used in Spain over the years, where young players receive valuable experience in the lower tiers, working their way up to the ‘A squad as they mature and show progress. Even a 16-year-old Lionel Messi started his professional career playing for the Barcelona ‘C team. The idea of creating an ‘A/‘B/C team development system makes sense, as the reserve divisions continue to crumble away in England, failing to provide adequate competitive football in a game trending younger in its player membership, while quenching the desire of supporters to see top football.   Those opposing a ‘B team system say the structure devalues the importance of smaller club football competition at lower levels and divisions in England. Smaller clubs pride themselves on tradition, community, and competition. Although a Manchester United ‘B team would attract a casual audience in stadia across the country, the ardent supporter will decry such a move as ruining the game, making a mockery of the current structure. Not all teams will be able to create and sustain a set-up of multiple competitive teams in different divisions. The costs and organizational commitment will ensure the big clubs will remain atop of the food chain while the have-nots will remain second-class citizens. Spain is one of the most top heavy, predictable leagues in world football.   Townsend was on-loan nine times. A Spurs ‘B team would have provided more stability for the young payer in his development and a clear path to the first team. Thats not to suggest the practice of a loan-move cant be effective. Due diligence is required to find the right fit for your on-loan players. Nine loan moves speaks to the lack of vision by the parent club in trying to find the right fit to cultivate the talent of Townsend. Simply turning to the League Championship to find a team that will play the player is the easy way out. Championship clubs are always looking to fill out rosters. If an on-loan player has the chance to star for a competitive, forward-thinking Championship club, then so be it. But, by far and away, regular minutes for another Premier League club is a preferable route with a much greater return. Growing familiarity with Premier League football and the expectations of playing with and against quality players is whats required for growth.   The questions of when and where are paramount. The loan move of Romelu Lukaku was a head-scratcher to most with Chelsea sending out an impact player to Everton. Many condemned the move by Jose Mourinho and continue to do so, insisting that Lukaku could help Chelsea up front now. While that may be true, Mourinho is taking the long-view, giving up short-term returns in a squad player at Stamford Bridge in preference for the young player to receive regular and consistent first-team football at Goodison Park.  The decision comes with risk. Mourinho is banking on the experienced Samuel Etoo, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba to provide goals in the lone striker role. The early returns have been sporadic, at best. But over the long-term, this was a patient, calculated move. Lukaku will return to Chelsea a better player after back-to-back years being the go-to man in attack and playing against top competition week-in, week-out. Everton was the perfect place for Lukaku to land - a team committed to playing the ball on the ground in a similar formation to that of Chelsea. The best teams at cultivating talent find these preferable situations where first-team playing time is not just expected, but demanded.   Manchester United have sent out Danny Welbeck (Sunderland) and Tom Cleverley (Wigan Athletic,) who were instant starters on the respective loan moves. The players returned to Old Trafford more complete and were prepared to become key contributors for a Premier League winning team. David Moyes faces the same predicament at present time with Wilfried Zaha. The 20-year-old winger has all the talent in the world, but Moyes feels uncomfortable playing the former Crystal Palace winger due to his carelessness with the ball in dangerous positions. That entire argument is flawed to begin with, but well leave that alone for the time being. If Moyes felt this way from the get-go, he should have loaned out Zaha at the beginning of the year. It doesnt do the player or the club any good for talent as such sitting on the sidelines watching games.  Moyes however remains steadfast Zaha is better at Old Trafford for the time being.   “I want Wilf to get used to what happens here,” said Moyes. “It is important Wilf gets to see the level of the training here, the level of the players and the quality they have got.”   Zaha is being linked to up to five Premier League teams for a January loan move. He simply has to. Seeing a younger, also raw, Adnan Januzaj get a look while waiting patiently for his chance does Zaha no good. A 20-year-old needs to play.  And its not just young players who suffer from watching. Shinji Kagawa blamed his lack of game action at Old Trafford for his current dip in form internationally with Japan.   “Maybe its because Im not used to being on the pitch of late, but I didnt feel like I was able to enter these two games properly,” said Kagawa after friendlies against Serbia and Belarus. “I felt strongly after these two matches that I need to play more.”   This is the crux for top teams. Depth is required to survive an arduous season. Chelsea struggled last year dealing with 69 matches in all competitions. Casuals blamed the manager, but a lack of squad depth was the real issue. Manchester United has depth. Moyes has been reluctant to use his entire squad. There is no question United needs Kagawa. But it doesnt do the player any good not being involved in competitive matches. Javier Hernandez is experiencing the same frustration at United and its affected his form with Mexico. These players need to play.   Townsend is fortunate to have caught the eye of his club manager and opened the door for his England debut. England manager Roy Hodgson spoke to the fact that Townsend, as well as Welbeck, Liverpools Daniel Sturridge and Arsenals Jack Wilshere are playing regular first team football as the catalyst to positive performance with England. If youre not playing, you cannot be expected to perform.   Chelsea, having added to the squad in the summer, realizes the need for their young players to play. The club has 25 players currently out on loan. Thats five more players on loan than Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal have combined.   The bottom line is, whether on a ‘B team or on loan, playing time is paramount. Training and developing ‘good habits isnt enough. The competitive nature of football at the top level is as much about confidence through experience and the psychological belief that one can succeed as it is proper training. Townsend has been given his chance and has run with it and England and Spurs are better off because of it.  Kevin King Packers Jersey . Smith, an eighth overall pick, had two goals in only 276 minutes of playing time over 16 appearances last season.

eaded back to the other end of the court, Martin cupped

MINNEAPOLIS - The NBA has fined Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin $15,000 for what the league called an obscene gesture during the fourth quarter against the Chicago Bulls. Zach Banner Jersey .The league announced the fine Monday. The gesture came after Martin hit a 3-pointer with just over 90 seconds to play in the game Saturday night. As he headed back to the other end of the court, Martin cupped his hands and held them just below his waist.The dance move was popularized by former Timberwolves guard Sam Cassell, who used to do it after big shots until the NBA started issuing fines to curb it.Martin had 33 points in the game, but the Wolves lost 106-105 on two free throws by Jimmy Butler with 0.2 seconds left. Tarell Basham Womens Jersey . Toronto ended an 0-4-0 skid with Sundays shootout win over visiting New Jersey, but the club could have a difficult time making it two victories in a row tonight.

The Bengals have underlined it this week.If Andrew Luck gets time to throw on Sunday, Cincinnati will likely head home one-and-done again.The Bengals (10-5-1) managed only 20 sacks during the season, the fewest in the NFL. Its the second-fewest sacks the Bengals have managed during a 16-game season.On Sunday night in Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger had plenty of time to find open receivers during a 27-17 Steelers win that gave them the AFC North title and relegated Cincinnati to a wild card berth.The Bengals head to Indianapolis for a first-round game on Sunday that amounts to a rematch. The Bengals visited on Oct. 19 and got shut out for the first time in five years. Luck was sacked twice, but threw for 344 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts 27-0 win.Luck cant get that much time again.We have to play great — great — against the opposing quarterback as well, coach Marvin Lewis said.The pass rush has been dreadful much of the season, which is a big surprise. Cincinnati finished third overall on defence last season and had 43 sacks. The Bengals lost end Michael Johnson — 3 1/2 sacks — but returned most of the defence intact. Paul Guenther replaced Mike Zimmer, who left as co-ordinator to become the head coach in Minnesota.Linebacker Vontaze Burfict has missed most of the season with concussions and a knee injury that required surgery. The line hasnt gotten pressure consistently, limiting Guenthers options.Cincinnatis defence finished 22nd overall in yards allowed, 20th against both the run and the pass.The Bengals will be trying to get to a quarterback who is hard to sack. The Colts allowed 29 sacks this season, the eighth-fewest in the league. During their game in October, Luck completed 27 of 42 passes without an interceeption. Malik Hooker Youth Jersey. Indianapolis piled up 506 yards, one of three times this season that the Bengals have allowed at least 500 yards in a game. The Colts led only 10-0 at halftime, and then pulled away against a defence that was on the field for nearly 40 minutes.Suppressing Andrew Luck is going to be kind of hard, safety Reggie Nelson said. He always starts off kind of slow and the scary thing is, he can always get his team going. The key for us as a secondary is not giving up deep balls, and weve given up a couple of those the last couple of games.Peyton Manning and Roethlisberger were able to complete long passes in the last two weeks, taking advantage of the lack of a pass rush.Obviously, if you get pressure on the quarterback, it helps, cornerback Terence Newman said. But we have to be tight in coverage and defend their receivers. From the wide receiver standpoint to the tight ends to the backs, everybody in that (Colts) offence pretty much touches the ball.The Bengals havent won a playoff game since the 1990 season, a 23-year drought that ties for the sixth-longest in NFL history. Theyve been knocked out in the opening round each of the last three seasons.In order to get the breakthrough, theyll have to get to Luck.Hes a gunslinger — good, bad, or whatever, safety George Iloka said. Hes always capable of making big plays. Were going to have our hands full, as we know.Notes: The club record for fewest sacks in a season is 16 in 1969, with a 14-game schedule.

Klay Thompson and Marreese Speights scored 16 points apiece for the Warriors, who will make back-to-back post-season appearances for the first time in more than two decades. After blowing a 20-point lead and a chance to clinch at home against Denver on Thursday night, Curry and the Warriors are back in the post-season after snapping an 11-game road losing streak against the Lakers. Nick Young scored 25 points for the Lakers, who set a franchise low with the 54th loss of their miserable season. The 1957-58 Minneapolis Lakers lost 53 times in their 72-game season. Curry, who hit four 3-pointers, grabbed a defensive rebound with 41 seconds left to wrap up his fifth career triple-double. The speedy point guard is the first Warriors player with four triple-doubles in a single season since Wilt Chamberlain had five in 1962-63. The Warriors had little trouble with the remnants of the Lakers, opening a 20-point lead in the third quarter and cruising to just their second road win over the 16-time NBA champions in 22 games. Steve Nash and Pau Gasol sat out for the Lakers, who will miss the playoffs for just the third time since 1976. Golden State also won its season series with the Lakers for the first time since 1994-95, and the Warriors victory was their 49th, one shy of the franchises first 50-win season since 1993-94.

Steve Blake had 13 points, five assists and five rebounds in his first road game against the Lakers since they traded him to Golden State on Feb. 19. The veteran point guard hit three 3-pointers during his highest-scoring game since joining the Warriors. Only nine Lakers suited up, thanks to their usual lengthy list of injured players: Nash, Gasol, Chris Kaman, Kent Bazemore and Xavier Henry all sat out. Nash experienced a flare-up of his season-long problems with his back and hamstrings on Tuesday while passing Warriors coach Mark Jackson for third place on the NBAs career assists list. Andre Iguodala and Jermaine ONeal sat out for Golden State, with Iguodala resting his right knee tendinitis for the second time this month. David Lee had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, coming off the bench in his return from a seven-game absence with right leg problems. Curry was sharp from the opening tip, scoring 11 points in each of the first two quarters. Even when he missed a breakaway dunk, he got the rebound and buried a 25-foot fall-away 3-pointer. Jordan Crawfords 3-pointer set off a 17-6 run by the Warriors, who led 58-43 at halftime. Young hit a series of jumpers to trim Golden States lead to 103-92 with 2:52 to play, but Thompson hit a few big shots to wrap it up.

called safe after video review. The guidelines sent

NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball sent a memo to teams and umpires clarifying this years experimental rule intended to limit collisions at home plate, saying runners should not be called safe if the ball clearly beats them. Joel Ward Jersey . The rule, announced in February, says a catcher cant block the plate if he doesnt have the ball. There have been several disputed calls, including a pair of decisions in the last 5 1/2 weeks that led to runners being called safe after video review. The guidelines sent to teams Tuesday say the catchers positioning shouldnt change the call when the throw clearly arrives ahead of the runner. They also say if the catcher is entirely in fair territory, he should not be considered to have blocked the plate. Photo examples were included. "Its basically the same thing, but the officials in New York got to use a little bit of common sense," Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "If youre out by 40 feet ... lets not call that guy safe because of that." The new guidelines were tested immediately when Tampa Bay left fielder Matt Joyce threw out the New York Yankees Stephen Drew trying to score in the fifth inning Tuesday night. Ryan Hanigan gave Drew no lane to the plate as the Rays catcher waited for the throw, which arrived in plenty of time. Hanigan tagged the sliding runner and Drew was called out by plate umpire Vic Carapazza. The ruling was upheld following a replay review, leaving the Rays with a 4-3 lead. Overturned calls led to tying runs for the home team in the late innings at Cincinnati on July 31 and at San Francisco on Aug. 13. In both cases, the hosts went on to score more runs in the inning and win. "Theres been a few plays this year where it looks like the guys been out by 10 feet and they call him safe because he felt like the catcher -- he took the plate away," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. "Youve got to add some common sense to the rule." On July 31 at Cincinnati, Miami led 1-0 in the eighth when Todd Frazier flied out to right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, who threw home as Zack Cozart tried to score from third. Catcher Jeff Mathis tagged Cozart, who trotted in without a slide, and the runner was called out by umpire Mike Winters. After a 6-minute, 10-second review, the call was overturned, and Ryan Ludwick followed with a two-run single that sent the Reds to a 3-1 win. Marlins manager Mike Redmond was ejected after throwing his hat to the ground and arguing with umpires. Then he kicked his hat on his way back to the dugout. San Francisco trailed the visiting White Sox 1-0 in the seventh inning on Aug. 13 when Chicago first baseman Jose Abreu fielded Joe Paniks broken-bat grounder and threw out a sliding Gregor Blanco by about 10 feet. The runner was called out by plate umpire Chris Segal, but after a video review that lasted 4 minutes, 55 seconds, replay umpires in New York ruled Blanco safe, citing catcher Tyler Flowers for blocking the plate with his left leg in violation of the new rule. Chicago manager Robin Ventura ran onto the field, was ejected and repeatedly kicked home plate. The Giants went on to a seven-run inning and won 7-1. "If a guy, you can tell hes going to be out, he should be out," Ventura said Tuesday. "I understand protecting the catchers. I think most of their injuries probably come from foul tips, not actual plays at the plate. You dont want guys charging the catchers coming into the plate. In the end when you get a guy out, you make the play, everythings done effectively, you want the guy to be out." The new rule followed debate that intensified following May 2011, when San Francisco slugger Buster Posey was injured as the Marlins Scott Cousins crashed into him at the plate. Posey, an All-Star catcher, sustained a broken bone in his lower left leg and three torn ligaments in his ankle, an injury that ended his season. In Game 5 of last years AL championship series, Detroit backstop Alex Avila was pulled a couple of innings after being run over at the plate by Bostons David Ross, a fellow catcher. Martin Jones Jersey .500 were once common achievements for the Dallas Mavericks. Now, both are season highs as Dallas slowly works its way back into playoff contention in the Western Conference. Marc-Edouard Vlasic Jersey . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- The Padres got another day to let their recovered players rest and enjoy their best stretch of the season. With outfielder Carlos Quentin and third baseman Chase Headley back, theyre thinking it could keep going. Just not on Wednesday. Their game against the Cincinnati Reds was postponed because of rain and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Thursday. They will play a regularly scheduled game at 12:35 p.m. EDT followed by a makeup game at 6:10 p.m. Ian Kennedy (2-4) will face Johnny Cueto (3-2) in the first game. Tyson Ross (4-3) will start the second game for San Diego. The Reds hadnt decided on their starter. It was the ninth postponement in Great American Ball Parks history since 2003 and the second this season. The Reds have had eight rain delays, two postponements and one suspended game this season in Cincinnati. The Padres are enjoying the best stretch of the season. They have won a season-high four straight and have scored 26 runs in the four games. Quentin wasnt going to be in the Padres lineup on Wednesday as manager Bud Black eases him back in. Quentin was activated before the series opener on Tuesday after missing the first 39 games with a bruised left knee, injured while diving for a ball during spring training. Quentin went 3 for 18 during a minor league rehab stint and was 0 for 3 with a walk in his return. Black planned to play him in one of the games on Thursday. "Were going to build him up, but we like when hes in the lineup," Black said. "Hes got to get into baseball shape." Injuries limited Quentin to 82 games last season, when he batted .275 with 13 homers and 44 RBIs. He was an All-Star with the White Sox in 2008 and 2011. "Arguably when hes healthy and playing his game, you can make a case that hes our best offensive player," Black said. "Hess a guy that has a proven record of offensive performance. Custom San Jose Sharks Jersey. So when hes in there, we score more runs." The Padres think he will make a difference in a struggling offence. "Hes a huge piece for us," Headley said. "If we can get him in there and keep him healthy, it makes everybodys job easier. Its great to have him back." San Diegos offence ranked last in the league with a .222 average and 118 runs. The Padres are hopeful that with Quentin back and Headley finally healthy, their offence can pick up. Headley returned from the disabled list last Saturday after recovering from a strained right calf and has homered twice. Headleys solo shot in the ninth inning off a 99 mph fastball from Aroldis Chapman gave the Padres a 2-1 win in the series opener. Reliever Dale Thayer rejoined the Padres on Wednesday after missing one game on paternity leave. Thayer is 2-1 with a 1.45 ERA in 20 games. The Padres optioned right-hander Kevin Quackenbush back to Triple-A El Paso to create a spot for Thayer. Quackenbush was called up for one game to fill in while Thayer was gone. Quackenbush didnt pitch in a 2-1 win over the Reds on Tuesday night, leaving him 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA in three stints with San Diego this season. NOTES: The Padres havent won a series on the road this season. ... Major League Baseball has made a scoring change from San Diegos 4-0 loss to Washington on April 26, taking a hit away from Jayson Werth and giving Jedd Gyorko an error. That takes two earned runs away from Padres starter Andrew Cashner, lowering his ERA to 2.35. ... Manager Bryan Price said C Devin Mesoraco, on a rehab assignment recovering from a strained hamstring, will play a couple more games before the Reds will consider activating him. He began the assignment Tuesday night with Triple-A Louisville. 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 ' ' '

hasing them for first place in the American Associatio

A solid start by Matt Jackson, a homer by Reggie Abercrombie and another flawless save from Brendan Lafferty is a perfect recipe for the Winnipeg Goldeyes. Cheap MLB Jerseys . Thanks to Jacksons effort and enough run support to stay ahead from start to finish, the Goldeyes defeated the St. Paul Saints 4-2 in front of 6,412 at Shaw Park on Wednesday night. With the win, the Goldeyes won their 50 th game of the season and improved to 50-32. It was Winnipegs third straight win and guaranteed them a series victory over the team thats chasing them for first place in the American Associations North Division. The Goldeyes now have a five-game lead over the 44-36 Saints and can sweep their seventh series of the year with another win on Thursday night. "This is the time of year when you want to be out on the mound," said Jackson, who only had one nervous moment in 6 2/3 innings of work. "Everybody is locked in right now and every game matters. This is when its fun." Jackson allowed only two runs on five hits before Gabe Aguilar, Chris Kissock and Lafferty came in to shut down the Saints. Brock Bond scored a pair of runs for Winnipeg, while Jake Blackwood drove in two and Abercrombie hit his team-leading 16 th homer of the year. Abecrombie and Bond were the only Goldeyes to have multi-hit nights. Winnipeg opened the scoring in the first inning when Bond led off with a walk, went to second on a wild pitch and then went to third on a passed ball. He scored on an RBI ground out by Jake Blackwood. The Goldeyes put up another run in the second when Reggie Abercrombie hit a line shot deep over the left field fence for his 16th home run of the season. The Fish made it 3-0 in the third, as Ryan Pineda led off with a walk, went to third on a single by Bond and scored on a fielders choice by Blackwood. But, St. Paul made it 3-2 in the fourth.

By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision. Cheap Tigers Jerseys China . It will be their 15th head-to-head meeting and fourth in the post-season (Sunday at 2pm et/11am pt on CTV) and for his part, Brady isnt downplaying just how big the game is for him. "Im excited - Its everything you could ask for as an athlete," the New England Patriots quarterback told WEEI Radio in Boston on Monday. ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Even on an off night, the Abbotsford Heat showed the patience and skill required to sit atop the American Hockey Leagues standings. The Heat gave up an early goal but battled back and took over the game in Wednesdays 6-2 defeat of the Iowa Wild. Abbotsford trailed 1-0 and 2-1 until the Heat scored twice in 15 seconds. "We really had some bad breakdowns," said Heat head coach Troy Ward. "I thought, Is this one of those nights where its a typical midweek game? We dont play a lot of those in Abbotsford, and it was like, Here we go, its a 6-5 shootout but then we settled in a little bit. "The critical juncture for me was we scored that third goal. Once we got up 3-2, we kind of relaxed a little bit and we settled in and I thought we played a little bit better defensively." Greg Nemisz scored that goal. The Calgary Flames 2008 first round pick was playing in his 200th career AHL game. "Its something to be proud of," said Nemisz of the milestone. "Its not easy to play 200 professional games." The 23-year-old has 81 points in that span, to go with his one assist in 15 NHL games. "Nemo is still forefront in the organizations mind," said Ward. "If you look at all the players who have donned the Heat jersey and played the 200 games, hes one of the most consistent performers. He obviously stubbed his toe last year -- he was coming off an injury at the start of the year and he just didnt have a real good year. "But so far, I think hes gotten out of the gates parallel to his first two years, where he got right around 30 points. Were happy with that, were still developing and working on parts of his game that are still coming." Ben Street scored twice, picking up his team-high 16th goal of the season, giving Novembers AHL player of the month 23 points in his last 15 games. Markus Granlund had a goal and an assist for Abbotsford (20-6-2), giving him a 10-game point streak in which he has 13 points. Brett Olson had a goal and two assists. Michael Ferland also scored, Corban Knight and Kane Lafranchise had two assists apiece, while Joni Ortio made 22 saves. Wholesale Tigers Jerseys. "We have the forwards that are capable of scoring when they want to," said Lafranchise. The Heat needed just 20 shots to get to six goals. The finished with 26 and wish they had more. "We were a little opportunistic tonight," said Nemisz. "We made some good plays. All in all, I dont think we played as well as we wanted to but we definitely had luck tonight." Brett Bulmer had a goal and an assist for Iowa (8-13-1), while Erik Haula also scored. Johan Gustafsson stopped 20 shots in the loss. The Wild opened the scoring just 64 seconds into the game. Bulmer recovered the puck in the corner and quickly centred for Haula who converted for his fifth goal of the year. "Its just one mistake in the back our net so we tried not to get too down about that," said Nemisz. Abbotsford tied it around the eight-minute mark. Olson crossed the blue-line and fed Ferland rushing down the left wing. The Brandon, Man. native beat Gustafsson stick side with a quick shot, giving him six goals on the season. However Iowa got a power play shortly after to regain its lead. Bulmer raced down the right side and beat Ortio glove side, top corner for his ninth of the year. The Heat took the lead with two goals in 25 seconds. First Street picked up his 15th of the season, one-timing a centring feed by Josh Jooris at 14:40.

OTTAWA SENATORSLAST SEASON: 37-31-14, 88 points, finished 11th in the Eastern Conference and missed the playoffs. Danny Welbeck Jersey UK .COACH: Paul MacLean, fourth season with Ottawa, 102-79-30.ADDED: RW Alex Chiasson, C David Legwand.LOST: RW Alex Hemsky, C Jason Spezza.PLAYER TO WATCH: Bobby Ryan. The right winger is in the final year of a five-year, $25.5 million deal, and according to general manager Bryan Murray has decided to wait before determining whether to re-sign. Murray noted the sides will talk in October or November to get something done.OUTLOOK: It was only 2012 and 2013 when many thought Ottawa was a franchise on the ascent after back-to-back playoff appearances. Now the Senators are facing an uncertain future as Ottawa lost centres Daniel Alfredsson and Spezza the last two offseasons. There is a very real possibility the organization may have to deal Ryan and Methot during the season if the players cannot come to terms with the team. It is not a playoff formula. Calum Chambers Arsenal Jersey UK . -- On any given day here at his companys Silicon Valley headquarters, Vivek Ranadive is ready to compete against any employee who wants to challenge him to any contest. Kieran Gibbs Jersey UK . After a 99-97 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night, his Celtics coaches and teammates have only positive things to say about the Toronto-born rookie.HOUSTON - Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck and Texans quarterback Case Keenum both have strong ties to Houston, are in their second year in the NFL, and are starting for their respective teams. Thats where their similarities end. Luck was the first overall pick in the 2012 draft and started from Day 1. Keenum joined the Texans as an undrafted free agent and spent all of last season on the practice squad. Luck has thrown for 1,574 yards and 10 touchdowns. Keenum had 271 yards passing and a touchdown in his only NFL game on Oct. 20. The pair will meet tonight when the AFC South-leading Colts face a Houston team looking to end a five-game skid. Watch the action unfold live on TSN, beginning with Football Night in America at 7pm et/4pm pt. "I think you realize when you go into an NFL locker room, after a certain period of time, it doesnt matter where youre drafted or how you got there," Luck said. "If you get a chance and you play well, thats what matters." Keenum agreed. "Drafted first overall or undrafted, I think, its kind of all put to the side when it comes down to it," Keenum said. Luck went to high school in Houston before attending Stanford. Keenum is from Abilene, Texas and set career NCAA records for yards passing (19,217) and touchdown passes (155) at the University of Houston. Keenum made his NFL debut in Houstons last game filling in for an injured Matt Schaub. The Texans lost 17-16, but coach Gary Kubiak saw enough promise in Keenum to give him another start with Schaub healthy. "I think (hes) growing," Kubiak said. "I liked him or I wouldnt have brought him here in the first place. I think he has all of the physical ability to do what you need to do in this league to be successful." Five things to know about the Colts-Texans game: BANGED-UP BACKS: Houstons top two running backs are dealing with injuries and are questionable. Starter Arian Foster has missed practice this week with a hamstring injury he sustained early in the last game. Backup Ben Tate finished that game despite breaking four ribs in the third quarter. Hes said he expects to play Sunday. Houston signed three running backs on Monday to add depth: rookies Ray Graham and Dennis Johnson, and fourth-yyear player Deji Karim. Olivier Giroud Arsenal Jersey UK. Karim played three games for the Colts late last season, mostly on special teams. He had a 101-yard kickoff return for a touchdown last season to help the Colts to a 28-16 win in their last meeting with Houston. REGGIES REPLACEMENT: Sunday will be Indianapolis first game without star receiver Reggie Wayne, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a win over Denver. With the Pro Bowler out, the Colts will look to 2008 first-round pick Darrius Heyward-Bey and second-year player T.Y. Hilton to pick up the slack. Heyward-Bey has 18 receptions for 190 yards and a touchdown, and Hilton has 27 receptions for 412 yards and two scores. AVOIDING ED: Houstons Ed Reed has just 14 tackles with no interceptions in five games this season, causing some to wonder if he can still be a difference maker at age 35. Coach Chuck Pagano does not have that doubt. Pagano was asked how to account for him. "Dont throw in his direction, first of all," Pagano said. "Wherever hes at, just tell the quarterback, Dont go near him. Thats one way. Thats easier said than done." Reed leads active players with 61 career interceptions and has four against the Colts. MONSTER MATHIS: Indianapolis linebacker Robert Mathis has already tied his career high with 11 1/2 sacks. He reached the mark in both 2005 and 2008. "The second year in (this defence), hes much more comfortable," Pagano said. "Obviously, it was a huge transition a year ago for him, going from a 4-3 end to a stand up outside linebacker. ... Were not surprised that hes putting the numbers up that he is." Mathis has 103 sacks in his 11-year career. Hes had 15 1/2 against Houston, which is the most of any opponent. NO CUSHING: The Texans are trying to regroup after losing star linebacker Brian Cushing to a season-ending knee injury for the second straight year. "Unfortunately, weve been down this road before and some guys will have to step up," Kubiak said. Fourth-year player Darryl Sharpton will take over for Cushing, and Kubiak will look to fellow starting linebackers Joe Mays and Brooks Reed to help make Sharptons transition easier. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org 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 ' ' '

Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Jordan Todman an

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Cheap Phillies Jerseys China . - When the Jacksonville Jaguars introduced starter Toby Gerhart before last weeks game, Gerhart and his fellow running backs ran onto the field together.They called it a sign of unity.It also served as a strong visual depicting what the Jaguars backfield has become.Its running back by committee in Jacksonville, with Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Jordan Todman and rookie Storm Johnson all sharing carries.The Jaguars (0-5) rank 31st in the league in rushing, averaging 67 yards a game, so the decision to get more guys involved was an obvious one.Johnson could be the wild card in the rotation. A seventh-round draft pick from UCF, Johnson was inactive the first three weeks because of ankle injury, and although he was active Week 4 at San Diego, he didnt play. He made his NFL debut Sunday against Pittsburgh, running four times for a team-high 27 yards.It wasnt a dazzling performance, but Johnsons 20-yard run in the third quarter matched the teams longest of the season (quarterback Blake Bortles) and was the longest for any Jaguars running back.Its not surprising to me, coach Gus Bradley said. I mentioned two weeks ago he had a good practice. Last week he had a good week, and its that trust and hes building trust. For him to go in there and perform and really capture his opportunity was pretty cool to see. ... The runs he had were very impressive.Johnson re-injured his ankle late in the game, but should be fine for Sundays game at Tennessee (1-4).Still in rebuilding mode, the Jaguars might start Johnson at some point. Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell have gone with several youngsters this season, especially on offence.Bortles, centre Luke Bowanko, right guard Brandon Linder, tight end Nic Jacobs and receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns all started in the 17-9 loss to the Steelers. Rookie linebacker Telvin Smith also got the nod, giving the team seven rookies in the starting lineup.By comparison, fellow AFC South teams Houston, Indianapolis and Tennessee started one each.Jacksonville also has five second-year players in its starting lineup, making the Jaguars one of the leagues youngest and least experienced teams.Caldwell and Bradley believe that if the competition is close between two players, its usually best to go with the younger guy, especially if they think hes got more upside.Well, its a challenge that weve said before that we accept, Bradley said. Somewhere down the line these guys cant be rookies anymore, I believe. I think somewhere theyve played enough games where they say, All right, lets go. I dont want to talk about that anymore. We understand that.Gerhart and the other running backs understand the situation.Although Jacksonville gave Gerhart a three-year, $10 million contract in free agency to be the No. 1 back, the former Minnesota Vikings backup knew he would be sharing the load this season.Injuries have made it even more necessary.Gerhart sprained his right ankle in the season opener against Philadelphia when he was horse-collar tackled from behind. He has been hobbled since. And it seemingly got worse Sunday when he sprained his right foot. He returned to the game, but finished with a season-low four carries for 9 yards, and played just 10 snaps.I know that he felt really good going into the game and then early he had an issue, Bradley said.Regardless of what happens to the starting spot, the running backs insist it wont matter because theyre so close. That was evident when they took the field together Sunday.Were just a tight group and we just said, Why not? Gerhart said.Todman said it carried over from last year, when former Jaguars standout Maurice Jones-Drew led the group and got everyone hanging out together. They even nicknamed themselves the wolf pack.They didnt get introduced as a group in 2013, but decided to do it Sunday a€” fitting given the state of the position.It was a group decision, Todman said. Why not? Lets do it. It was good to have everybody out there active and able to play.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .J. -- Rampage Jackson scowled, howled, then bellowed to the crowd: "Im back! Im back!" With rebuilt knees and a new promotion, Jackson might have one more act left in MMA. Wholesale Phillies Jerseys . -- Chris Jones and Louisville have done a tremendous job protecting the basketball this season and thats led to easy victories.NEW YORK -- Lindsey Vonn was tempted to speed up her return from knee surgery to rediscover the rush of racing she misses so badly. Instead, she made what she calls a "wise" decision. The Olympic downhill champion skipped last Saturdays season-opening race in Austria. She will stick with her original plan to come back at home at the event in Beaver Creek, Colo., from Nov. 29-Dec. 1. After training in Chile in August went better than expected, Vonn flirted with the idea of coming back for the giant slalom in Soelden. She decided last week to wait. Her right knee felt great in training. But she could tell her body just wasnt quite ready to race. "My timing is a little bit off," Vonn told The Associated Press in a phone interview Monday. "If I get into trouble, if I make a mistake on the course, I revert to bad habits. Im not as technically sound as I need to be. That just takes time on the snow." Every decision centres on making sure shes healthy and in top form for this winters Sochi Olympics. The four-time overall World Cup winner shredded her anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in a crash at the world championships in Schladming last February. Cheap MLB Jerseys. "I really wanted to compete," Vonn said. "Ive been really antsy. I need that adrenaline rush. I need to be back on the circuit." But Soelden isnt a very important World Cup race in the big picture, and the overriding goal is to compete in Russia. The Olympics start Feb. 7 -- 100 days from Tuesday. If Vonn is there racing, shell be one of the biggest stars of the Sochi Games. She made the rounds in Manhattan on Monday, appearing on the "Today" show and the "Late Show" with David Letterman. Vonn was promoting the "Thank You, Mom" campaign for sponsor Procter & Gamble. The video with her mother details the story of her devastating injury, a tale that surely will be told over and over if shes contending for gold again a year later. The best way to accomplish that was to put off her return just a little bit longer. "She has another month. Colorado is going to be great and shes going to be ready in Beaver Creek," U.S. Ski Team Alpine director Patrick Riml said last week. 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 ' ' '

in a trade with the Cubs on July 2, Feldman (5-4) a

BALTIMORE -- With Chris Davis leading the way, the Baltimore Orioles put on another long-ball display in an important win over the Chicago White Sox. Cheap Twins Jerseys Authentic . This victory, however, was different than all the rest. Scott Feldman pitched a five-hitter for Baltimores first complete game of the season, Davis hit his major league-leading 48th home run and the Orioles dealt Chicago its eighth straight defeat, 4-0 Friday night. Danny Valencia and Matt Wieters also homered for the Orioles, who began the day three games behind Tampa Bay for the final AL wild-card slot. Making his 11th start since he was acquired in a trade with the Cubs on July 2, Feldman (5-4) allowed only one runner past first base in his first career shutout. The right-hander walked one and struck out three. "Its my first shutout, so anytime something like that happens, its something Ill always remember," Feldman said. "All these games are important, so just to win the game is huge. If I go nine or seven, whatever it is, as long as we win its a good game." His only other complete game came on May 1, for the Cubs against San Diego. It was Baltimores first complete game since June 16, 2012, by Jason Hammel against Atlanta. "We just couldnt get anything going," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "We got a couple hits here and there, but nothing with anything on it. Even when we got some guys on, we couldnt really do anything with it." Davis connected in the sixth inning off John Danks to move within two homers of tying Brady Anderson for the single-season club record. The solo shot gave Davis 123 RBIs, second-most in the majors behind Detroits Miguel Cabrera (130). The Orioles lead the majors with 191 home runs, which is the main reason why theyre still in the thick of the playoff chase. It was the second day in a row that Baltimore hit three solo shots. "I think its just a combination of guys feeling a little bit of urgency and being aggressive in the right spots," Davis said. "Nobodys going up there expecting to hit home runs or trying to hit home runs. I think the biggest thing is trying to get a pitch to drive and letting the bat kind of take over. This is obviously a big point in the year for us. We need to win as many games as possible and the fact that guys are stepping up big in these spots is huge." Chicago fell to 0-8 on a road trip that began with three losses in Boston and three more at Yankee Stadium. The last-place White Sox have scored only one run in the first two games of this series, which runs through Sunday. "I dont think theyre pressing," Ventura said. "Its just the way it is. I dont know what there is to press for." Danks retired the first eight batters he faced, all on balls in the air. Then Valencia hit a liner into the left-field seats to put the Orioles up 1-0. It was the 15th consecutive run scored by Baltimore via the home run. Chicago missed a chance to pull even in the fourth when Jeff Keppinger was thrown out by centre fielder Adam Jones while trying to score on a two-out single by Paul Konerko. Replays indicated Keppinger got his hand on the plate before Wieters made the tag. Danks didnt get his first groundball out until the fifth inning, when Michael Morse hit into a double play following singles by J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis. Valencia followed with an infield hit down the third-base line for a 2-0 lead. Davis and Wieters homered in succession in the sixth, chasing Danks. Davis was 0 for 12 lifetime against Danks before a single in the fourth. "The few mistakes I made, they hit them out of the ballpark," Danks said. Wieters homer was his 21st, the 20th as a catcher. He is the first player in Orioles history to have three straight seasons with 20 home runs as a catcher, according to the team. NOTES: The White Sox activated RH reliever Ramon Troncoso from the DL and outrighted RHP Jhan Marinez to Triple-A Charlotte. ... Baltimore purchased the contract of OF Chris Dickerson from Triple-A Norfolk and designated INF Alex Liddi for assignment. ... Wei-Yin Chen takes the mound for the Orioles on Saturday. Hector Santiago will pitch for the White Sox. ... Keppinger got two hits off Feldman and is 6 for 11 lifetime against him. ... Jones is 1 for 30 lifetime against Danks. ... Hardy has hit in six straight games, going 10 for 20 during that span. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .

Josi beat Flyers goalie Steve Mason for the last of a combined five shootout goals to give the Predators the needed road win as they chase a playoff spot. Weber had a big night in his first game against Philadelphia since the Flyers made him a $110 million, 14-year offer in the summer of 2012. The Predators matched the deal, keeping him in Nashville. He declined to go into detail about his return to Philly, simply stating he was happy with the win. He wasnt even booed by the fans, though Flyers forward Scott Hartnell got in his ear. "Just Hartsy cause hes always chirping," Weber said, smiling. "But thats nothing new, though." Weber snapped a tie game with a power-play goal early in the third period. Wayne Simmonds tied the game 3-all with a power-play goal with 1:24 left in regulation to send the game into OT. Eric Nystrom and David Legwand also scored in regulation for Nashville. Brayden Schenn and Andrej Meszaros scored for the Flyers. "We moved our feet, made the right plays and played the way we wanted to play," Flyers captain Giroux said. "We had our chances. We played well and were able to tie it up at the end there. They just did a good job in finding a way to get the two points." Nashville dug deep into the pocketbook and decided to pay Weber the $110 million over 14 years offered by the Flyers. The Flyers were looking for someone to fill the void left in defenceman Chris Prongers absence. Instead, they were left scrambling without the former All-Star and Olympic gold medallist . Even with their captain in the fold, the Predators are fighting for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. They can thank Webers 12th goal for setting up this win -- and one incredible save by Carter Hutton. Cheap MLB Jerseys. The Predators acquired Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk this week, but went with Hutton in front of another sold out Philadelphia crowd. Hutton was behind the net as he chased a puck that knocked off the boards and back to a charging Michael Raffl, who had an open look at the net and fired for the seemingly easy goal. Hutton hustled like an All-Star shortstop and made a diving grab to snatch the puck. Raffl could only shake his head in disbelief on the second period stop. That was just the break the Predators needed. "That was sick," Josi said. "Thats going to be on the highlight reel for a long time. He was more like a soccer goalie on that save." The Flyers needed only 1:26 into the game to score when Schenn tapped in a loose puck for his 13th goal of the season. The fast start was short-lived. Nashville scored the next two goals, erasing Philadelphias early momentum. Raffl whiffed as he tried to clear the puck, giving Gabriel Borque a look at the net. His shot was deflected by Nystrom for his seventh goal. The Flyers were then down two players after Kimmo Timonen was whistled for boarding and Giroux for tripping. The Predators failed to score on their 1:18 of a 5-on-3 advantage, but just as Girouxs penalty came off the clock, Legwand connected on a one-timer for a 2-1 lead. Weber assisted on the first two goals, exactly the kind of play the Flyers expected when they made him the monster offer. One of the worst teams in the league at protecting the puck, the Flyers had seven giveaways in the first period. "I thought we may have been sitting back a little too much," Schenn said. "Obviously, they are a very quick team who works hard. When you sit back theyre going to take it to you." Meszaros tied the game 2-all with 3.6 seconds left in the second period. NOTES: The Flyers have lost two straight at home after winning 10 straight at home. ... The Predators won in Philadelphia for the first time since 2006. ... Weber leads NHL defenceman with 12 goals. 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 ' ' '
