A look at some of the highlights from Saturdays schedule in the Las Vegas Summer League:YOUNG SUNSThe Phoenix Suns young core had an impressive game in an 86-73 win over Portland. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-alexei-emelin-canadiens-jersey/ . Second-year guard Devin Booker scored 28 points on 11 of 21 shooting from the field, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range.Dragan Bender, the No. 4 overall pick in last months draft, scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Point guard Tyler Ulis, who surprisingly fell to the second round, finished with 11 points, seven assists and five rebounds.BROWNS BACKThe drafts No. 3 overall pick Jaylen Brown played on Saturday against the Chicago Bulls, scoring nine points on 3-of-13 shooting.Though it wasnt a great game for Brown, the good news was that he was simply back on the court. It was his first action since Monday, when he hyperextended his right knee in his first summer league game. He was diagnosed with a bone bruise.The Celtics 16th overall selection, Guerschon Yabusele, scored 10 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 22 minutes.LYLES IMPRESSIVESecond-year Utah Jazz forward Trey Lyles scored 28 points in an 88-73 loss to the Washington Wizards. The 6-foot-10 Lyles improved as his rookie season progressed and averaged nearly 13 points per game in April.Second-year guard Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 20 points for the Wizards.REMEMBER JIMMER?Jimmer Fredette is the rare veteran playing in the summer league. The 6-foot-2 guard is trying to earn a spot with the Denver Nuggets and poured in 26 points in a 106-62 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.Jamal Murray, the drafts No. 7 overall pick out of Kentucky, scored six points while shooting just 2 of 11 from the field for the Nuggets.Petr Cornelie, a 6-foot-11 center who was a second-round pick for Denver, scored 19 points on 7 of 11 shooting from the field.The Grizzlies were led by Wade Baldwin IV, the drafts No. 17 pick, who scored 10 points.MCRAE, KILPATRICK STAND OUTSecond-year guard Jordan McRae scored 27 points in Clevelands 79-73 loss to Brooklyn. Third-year guard Sean Kilpatrick scored 19 for the Nets.SIMMONS-INGRAM FIZZLESThe highly-anticipated summer league matchup between No. 1 pick Ben Simmons and No. 2 pick Brandon Ingram fizzled. Philadelphias Simmons had some good moments, including some pretty passes, and finished with eight points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.The Los Angeles Lakers Ingram struggled early, but hit a few shots in the fourth quarter to finish with seven points and four rebounds.That didnt mean there wasnt drama, though. DeAngelo Russell made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lead the Lakers over the 76ers 70-69. He finished with 22 points. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-noah-juulsen-canadiens-jersey/ . LOUIS -- St. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-doug-harvey-canadiens-jersey/ . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-alexander-radulov-canadiens-jersey/ . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI 180 (Cornwall 41, Jadeja 3-16, Ashwin 3-62) and 223 for 6 (Blackwood 51, Hodge 39*, Ashwin 3-59) drew with Indians 364 (Rahul 64, Jadeja 56, Kohli 51, Cornwall 5-118) ScorecardWest Indies batsman Jermaine Blackwood returned to form with a patient half-century while R Ashwin scalped three wickets in the second innings as the Indians warm-up game against West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI petered out into a draw in Basseterre.Resuming from their overnight deficit of 158, batsmen Joel Campbell and Shai Hope started slowly. After striking Ravindra Jadeja for two sixes, Campbell holed out to mid-on for a 59-ball 31.Five overs later, Hope was caught by Virat Kohli at leg slip and the Presidents XI were 70 for 3. However, Blackwood, who is part of West Indies Test squad for the India series, and Vishaul Singh expelled the Indians hopes of a win with a 62-run fourth-wicket partnership off 31 overs.Im fully confident, Blackwood said after play. The first innings [I] was looking to bat as long as possible, [I] have the feel of the bowlers. Now I know what they have to offer. I tried to pick the gap, not try to be as aggressivve as my normal self and changed my approach. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-phillip-danault-canadiens-jersey/. . [Im] always going to be confident, even if I get one ball or make a hundred, Im still going to be the same Jermaine Blackwood.Vishaul was run-out for 39 and Blackwood was bowled by Ashwin for 51 off 143 balls, but Montcin Hodge and Rahkeem Cornwall added 39 for the sixth wicket. Cornwall was caught behind for 21 off Mohammed Shami but with an Indian win seeming unlikely, the game was drawn with 78 overs bowled in the day.Seamers Shami and Shardul Thakur bowled 11 and 12 overs respectively, while spinners Ashwin, Jadeja and Amit Mishra shared 43 overs among them.In both the (warm-up) games, pitches in St Kitts were slow, Thakur said after the game. We are expecting slower wickets in the Test matches. If there is a slow wicket the next time we play, it wont surprise us. We are ready for it. Doesnt matter what the pitch is - slow or fast. Effort matters. To put in that effort is my job.India begin their four-Test series against West Indies in North Sound, Antigua from July 21.

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. TORONTO -- Mariners hitting coach Edgar Martinez is away from the team this weekend so he can watch friend and former teammate Ken Griffey Jr. be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday.Seattles batters seem be faring just fine without him.Hisashi Iwakuma pitched six innings to win his fifth straight start, Nelson Cruz hit his ninth career grand slam and homered twice, and the Mariners matched a season high with 19 hits Saturday in a 14-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.Cruz hit his slam off R.A. Dickey in the third, and had a three-run drive off Drew Storen in the eighth for his 20th career multi-homer game. He has 25 home runs this season, the fourth-highest total in the AL.We miss Edgar and we showed him that we miss him, Cruz joked.It was the 13th time in team history a Mariners player has had seven RBI. The team record is eight by Mike Blowers, Mike Cameron and Alvin Davis.Over his final four at-bats, Cruz came to the plate with 10 runners on base in front of him. The only time in that stretch he didnt have runners on was when he flied out to open the fifth.I dont remember the last time I had that many runners on base, Cruz said. Its always nice to have that chance and to deliver in those situations.Kyle Seager hit a two-run homer and Nori Aoki had two RBI and scored twice to help the Mariners win their third straight, a streak that began with Wednesdays walkoff win over the White Sox.Hopefully, that was the wake-up call we need, Cruz said.Iwakuma (11-6) allowed two runs and four hits.Unbeaten since June 22 at Detroit, he is 5-0 with a 2.50 ERA in his past five outings and 10-2 in 12 starts since May 20.Hes been our most consistent guy all year, theres no doubt, manager Scott Servais said.Wade LeBlanc pitched the final three innings for his first save.Former Mariners players Michael Saunders and Justin Smoak combined for three home runs against their old team, but it was nowhere near enough for the Blue Jays, who gave up a season-worst 14 runs.Saunders hit two solo homers, one off Iwakuma in the sixth and another off LeBlanc in the eighth. It was hiss eighth career multihomer game and third this season. Solomon Thomas Womens Jersey. Saunders, who also connected in Fridays 2-1 loss, matched his career high with 19.Smoak hit a two-run drive off LeBlanc in the eighth, his 11th.Cruzs first homer came after Dickey (7-11) hit consecutive batters to load the bases in the third.Dickey left after the first four batters reached safely in the fourth, his shortest start of the season. He gave up six earned runs, matching a season worst, and seven hits.Dickey has yielded 24 homers this season. Only Kansas Citys Ian Kennedy and Chris Young (26) have allowed more.I felt like I executed a pretty good pitch to Cruz and he did a good job of staying with it, Dickey said.Seattle widened its lead with a five-run sixth, when the first five batters all got hits off reliever Jesse Chavez.Cruz batted with the bases loaded for a second time but grounded into a double play. Seager chased Chavez with a homer to center, his 19th.THE DECIDERIwakuma has received a decision in 17 of his 20 starts.WALK THIS WAYBlue Jays slugger Josh Donaldson walked twice. He leads the AL with 67 walks.COLABELLOS SUSPENSION OVERBlue Jays 1B Chris Colabello has been reinstated from the restricted list after serving an 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. Colabello was suspended April 22 after the commissioners office said he tested positive for a drug sold under the name Turinabol. Colabello was designated off the 25-man Toronto roster Saturday, but was kept on the 40-man roster. Hes expected to be assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.TRAINERS ROOMMariners: Seattle placed SS Ketel Marte (mononucleosis) on the 15-day DL, retroactive to July 20, and recalled LHP David Rollins from Triple-A Tacoma.UP NEXTMariners: LHP Wade Miley (6-7, 5.36) is 0-5 with a 5.60 ERA in his past five starts.Blue Jays: LHP J.A. Happ (12-4, 3.43) is 6-0 in seven starts since his most recent loss, June 6 at Detroit. Happs next victory will be his career-high 13th.

GRAND FORKS, N. Myles Turner Pacers Jersey .D. -- Quinton Hooker scored 30 points for the fifth time in his career and North Dakota cruised to a 94-66 victory over NAIA Mayville State Tuesday night.Hooker knocked down 11 of 14 shots from the field and was 5 of 7 from beyond the arc and led four Fighting Hawks into double-figure scoring.The Comets trailed by just eight points at intermission, 43-35.

Paul George Jersey . Once again, DeLaet finished tied for second at a PGA Tour stop on the weekend, this time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The pride of Weyburn, Sask. Mark Jackson Jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. http://www.pacersteamofficial.com/c-j-miles-pacers-jersey/ . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. I hate my team.If youre a fantasy football owner, youve surely had that thought -- and likely articulated it -- at some point. Who knows? Maybe it was late on a Week 7 Sunday night while watching Russell Wilson play five whole quarters without a touchdown, after Jordy Nelson and Allen Robinson combined for three catches. Just picking a random example there, of course. If anyone had actually had such a ludicrous case of bad fantasy luck befall him, hed potentially be too distraught to write his weekly What We Learned column.Anyway, it occurred to me Sunday that fantasy football owners arent the only ones who go through this. Real NFL owners, general managers, coaches, quarterbacks ... some of them apparently go through some form of it too, when the week doesnt go their way.So it was on Sunday that Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher cracked, Ill make changes at receiver before I make a change at quarterback. It was on Sunday that Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick groused that his coaches and front office no longer believed in him. It was on Sunday that Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer followed his FIRST LOSS OF THE SEASON by calling his offensive line soft and saying it looked like a sieve. And this was all hours before Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians got to the podium.Yes, it was still two months before Festivus, but Sunday was a regular airing of the grievances around the NFL. And as I sat in that cramped interview room at Lincoln Financial Field, listening to Zimmer absolutely go off on his 5-1 Vikings, I learned theyre not that much different from you and me, these guys. No, I dont think Zimmer hates his team. But in that moment? I dont know. Lets just say I think a lot of us have felt like he sounded.On to what else Week 7 in the NFL taught us.Adam Gase should bottle and market whatever tough love he gave Jay AjayiRemember back at the start of the season, when the Miami Dolphins second-year running back couldnt even get a uniform because his rookie head coach didnt like the way he was carrying himself in the locker room? Well, Gases hard coaching seems to have located the on button on Ajayi, who followed up Week 6s 204-yard rushing performance against Pittsburgh with a 214-yard rushing performance against Buffalo. Ajayi is averaging 7.9 yards per carry the past two weeks. He had 117 yards in the Dolphins first five games, and after their seventh game he is?the sixth-leading rusher in the NFL. Obviously, the numbers here are not sustainable. But if Ajayi is going to be an effective starting running back after the way the season began for him, count him as an early coaching win for young Gase.The Raiders are WAY ahead of the Jaguars in the preseason sleeper standingsThe Oakland Raiders flew 2,400 miles to play an early Sunday game in Jacksonville and wiped the floor with the OTHER team everyone pegged to take a big leap in the AFC this season. All is not perfect with Oakland, the only team in the league that has allowed 3,000 yards already. But the Raiders?wouldnt trade problems with the Jaguars. Blake Bortles is 28th in completion percentage, 27th in yards per attempt, 28th in passer rating, 27th in Total QBR and has the third-most?interceptions. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who went 33 picks laterr than Bortles did in the 2014 draft, is looking just a touch more advanced at this stage, and the Jaguars high hopes are stuck in neutral with their quarterback. Al Jefferson Pacers Jersey. The Rams might be doing Jared Goff a favorI dont go as far as Fisher did in absolving Case Keenum for Sundays loss to the New York Giants in London, but I do get his point. The Rams offense right now has a lot of problems, including a lack of reliable pass-catchers, a shaky offensive line and the fact that defenses are loading up against second-year back Todd Gurley. This isnt exactly a unit thats humming on all cylinders and ready to help maximize the performance of a rookie quarterback. The Rams have said repeatedly that they will play the No. 1 pick Goff when hes ready. They havent said theyre waiting to be able to put him?in a better position to succeed than hed be in right now. But Ill bet theyd tell you that if they were being totally honest with you.The Chiefs should be AFC West favoritesAnd no, this notion does not disrespect the Denver Broncos, who are Super Bowl champions and have won this division five years in a row. The Chiefs have won 15 of their past 18 games. Theyre winning in all different kinds of ways -- grind it out with the running game one week, hit them with the big passing plays the next. The defense scores a touchdown nearly every game. This is a team that won 11 in a row before losing to the Patriots in the playoffs last season. This is a coach who won six division titles when he was in Philadelphia. Jamaal Charles isnt all the way back yet. Justin Houston has yet to play this season. The Chiefs are real good right now and could get better.The Bengals have a chance to right their shipCincinnati doesnt want to be 3-4, of course, but four of their first six games were at Pittsburgh, home to the Broncos, at Dallas and at New England. So the Bengals took care of business against the Browns (who they see again!) on Sunday, and looking ahead its fair to say they should be favored in at least five of their next six games, if not all six. Cincinnati has gone to the playoffs every year since drafting Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, and this years rough start didnt automatically mean the end of that streak.People are too mean to kickersNo doubt, Chandler Catanzaro and Steven Hauschka should have made their potential game-winning chip shots Sunday night in Arizona. But if youd told either the Cardinals or the Seahawks right before the game that theyd need only seven points to win, theyd have signed up. You dont score a touchdown, you dont have the right to get upset at your special teams when you dont win.Next years No. 1 pick is probably going to be a quarterbackThe 0-7 Browns already have used six quarterbacks this season. The 1-6 Bears have used three. The 1-6 49ers have used only two, but its well documented that they dont love either one. No idea which team ends up with the pick (Sundays Browns-Jets game is potentially HUGE for this!), but if its one of these, get ready for a lot of misspelled DeShone Kizer/Deshaun Watson debates on the shores of Lake Erie, Lake Michigan and the San Francisco Bay.

Round 7 was a see-sawing affair that saw two sets of back to back games. Asics Aaron CV . The top of the table Sydney Kings and Perth Wildcats split their games while the New Zealand Breakers and Illawarra Hawks also split theirs.Home court advantage was a big factor this week as five of the six games fell to the home side; Adelaide were the only side not to deliver in front of their home crowd.Melbourne finally returned to the winners list with the return of star guard Chris Goulding, as well as welcoming in new import, Casper Ware.Unfortunately, the action wasnt exactly edge of your seat material as only one out of the six games was decided by single figures.So who and what stood out the most during round 7?Hot StartsJumping out of the blocks and getting a quick start against your opponent is crucial in games of basketball. It puts the opposition squarely behind the eight ball and can force them to throw away the game plan in the hopes of getting back into the game.Every side that won the opening quarter this round won the game.Brisbane stunned Adelaide, hitting more threes in the opening quarter than Adelaide did for the entire game. New Zealand flew out of the blocks and scored the opening 12 points against Illawarra in their opening game; a deficit that was to great too overcome.Welcome ReturnChris Goulding finally pulled on the United jersey again and it couldnt have come at a better time for his side. United had lost five straight since Goulding went down with his ankle injury against the Brisbane Bullets in round 3. Squaring off against the Cairns Taipans and hoping to get off the bottom of the ladder, Goulding was firing on all cylinders.Finishing the game with 30 points and an incredible 8/12 from beyond the arc, equalling the United record for made threes in a game. Hitting big shot after big shot and carrying his side over the line.Problems at HomeHome court is supposed to be your fortress, a place where you can impose your will on opposing teams. Unfortunately for Adelaide, their stadium has effectively become a home away from home for opposing teams.Adelaide have now lost their last four games and more importantly their last two games have been at home. To add some salt into the wounds, theyve lost both games by double digits.The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one, Adelaide need to recognize that they have a major problem on their hands.Johnny FlameWith 7:19 left on the game clock in the fourth quarter and the Kings down by 15 points, they were screaming for answers; thats when Brad Newley caught fire and morphed into Johnny Flame.In the space of 2 minutes and 44 seconds, Newley hit four three pointers and brought the Kings to within 4 points.Running around screens and hitting from all around the arc, Newley was simply unstoppable; ultimately finishing with 34 points and hitting 7/10 from deep. Sadly for the Kings, it wasnt enough as the Wildcats ran away with the contest.BlowoutsRound 7 saw the biggest average winning margin of any round so far this season, eclipsing the round four average of 12.6. With only the one game decided by single digits, the average margin of victory over the weekend ended up a whopping; 15.5 points.Illawarra helped this margin with their 31 point decimation of New Zealand in the final game of the round. So far this season there have been two games decided by over 30 points and Illawarra are responsible for both.There have been 42 games during the 2016/17 NBL season with the average margin of victory sitting at 10.47 points. Whilst the competition has been hotter than ever, the games are unfortunately reflecting a more one-sided affair. Onitsuka Tiger Sale USA . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. Asics Mens Gel Kinsei 6 Running Shoes Orange/Green/Black .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. http://www.quizidea.com/sale-asics-gel-lyte-v.html .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup. EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers arent used to this type of start to a season.Benoit Pouliot scored twice, Cam Talbot made 34 saves and the Oilers stretched their winning streak to four games with a 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.I think this start is huge for us, Pouliot said after his team improved to 6-1-0. The last couple of years, we havent had good starts and it is tough to climb back. Now we are having a good start, and we just have to keep it going.Patrick Maroon and Milan Lucic also scored for the Oilers, off to their best start since opening 8-1-0 during the 1985-86 season. They have won four of five at Rogers Place, their new downtown arena.Its a big win for us, said captain Connor McDavid, who had two assists to give him 11 points this season.Tonight was kind of a benchmark for us. ... Tonight was a big test. These guys are a giant in the NHL and we were able to play well and get a win, which is huge for our team.Alex Ovechkin scored for the Capitals (3-2-1), who have lost two straight in regulation -- something that did not happen at all last season.We just need a little more push from the whole group, coach Barry Trotz said. Were going to have to get a little more greasy, get some of those greasy goals.Those key moments when were still in the game, we have to recognize those moments and were not recognizing those moments right now. We didnt play well enough to win.The chances were fairly even in a scoreless first period, with the Capitals getting 11 shots on Talbot, and Edmonton directing 10 shots at Washington starter Braden Holtby.Edmonton was badly outplayed to start the second period, but ended up taking the games first lead just more than seven minutes in as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins intercepted a pass, danced around defender Dmitry Orlov and put a long shot on net that Pouliot redirected past Holtby. Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Black White. The Oilers made it 2-0 with 2:52 remaining in the second, as Pouliot scored his third of the season by banking in a shot off Holtby from behind the Washington net.Things got a bit heated late in the period when Talbot had enough of T.J. Oshie hitting him with his stick in front on a power-play scramble and ended up unleashing a couple punches of his own that led to a roughing minor.More or less cross-checking my knee while I was down, Talbot said. I didnt think that was right so I more or less gave him a shot back and it was even after that.Washington cut into the lead 9 seconds into the third as Ovechkin slid a puck under Talbot, scoring in his fourth consecutive game.Edmonton shook off that goal quickly, though, as McDavid set up Jesse Puljujarvi for a glorious opportunity that Maroon finished off a rebound.The Oilers got some insurance midway through the third when Lucic tipped Andrej Sekeras power-play point shot into the net.Game notes It was the first of two meetings this season between the Capitals and Oilers. The next time they play is Feb. 24 in Washington. ... Edmonton has had the NHLs first star of the week for the first two weeks of the season, as Talbot followed McDavid in winning the award on Monday.UP NEXTCapitals: Washington is at Vancouver on Saturday night, then will close its Western Canada swing with games in Calgary on Sunday night and Winnipeg on Tuesday night.Oilers: Edmonton is at Vancouver on Friday night.

Lets concede for a moment that some people will cheat to win. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . I know, its hard to swallow. But human nature, being driven by human beings, sometimes veers toward the dark side, and it is up to those who prefer to play the game on the square to make cheating a no-win option.To that end, it was announced last week by the California Horse Racing Board that the Ken Maddy Laboratory at UC-Davis will be going full speed ahead in developing the same kind of athletic biological passport (ABP) being applied to participants in such international sports as cycling, track and field, and World Cup soccer.In order to monitor the new generation of doping agents, were going to have to develop biological passports, said Rick Arthur, CHRB equine medical director. Remember, its always a cat-and-mouse game. Whenever we plug up one problem, they start looking for a new and better treatment.A biological passport would record the normal blood profile of every horse in competition. Pre-race and out-of-competition testing would require that the horse maintains his normal profile.Arthur cites the illegal use of anabolic steroids and blood-doping agents as the two primary targets of the biological-passport project. The first study module for the Maddy lab would be an ABP that would indicate abnormalities in the natural biosynthesis of equine testosterone.We know the effects anabolic steroids have on the muscles last well beyond the presence of the drug and because of that are not detectable with our normal testing, Arthur said. We think we can measure abnormalities in the steps along the way that indicate the animal has been doped with an anabolic agent.The idea of an equine biological passport is gaining supporters. Jonathan Allen, a practicing vet based in south Florida, became a believer after a reputable lab tested the blood of two groups of horses in his care. One of the sample groups had recently arrived from another racing region.We know things like cobalt and EPO are used to enhance oxygen delivery to muscles, Allen said. But the traditional tests for blood doping are expensive and unreliable.Allen is an amateur club cyclist who does not need to look far to see the likely effects of blood enhancement.There are probably guys I cycle with that are going all the time to these wellness clinics and are doing HGH, testosterone, Allen said. Im from Boca Raton, the land of ever young. My neighbor is 72, pumping iron, wearing testosterone patches - all under a doctors prescription.The biological passports of human athletes contain a blood measure that accounts for the normal distribution and width (RDW) of red blood cells. A simple, pre-race blood test for racehorses would need to conform closely to the information established in their personal passport. A marginally abnormal reading would require a follow-up test, while dramatic abnormalities would be cause for the horse to be scratched.Dr. Raquel Walton, the equine pathologist, has written that there are three main reasons for RDWs to be abnormal in horses, Allen said. The first would be some kind of hemolytic anemia, where your horse is sick and not producing a sufficient amount of red blood cells. The second would be a massive blood loss. And the third one would be if the horse was given EPO or another substance that stimulates red blood cells above and beyond the normal level.It stands to reason that an anemic horse or a horse who has just suffered a large blood loss would not be doing much training, let alone be entered to race.This is not looking for the smoking gun, Allen said. Its looking for the crime scene. There is no positive called, no suspensions or fines, and no cause for a trainer to lawyer up. It is a biological pre-race examination, just as horses are required to pass a pre-race physical examination and could be scratched for a suspicious tendon.No one supporting the biological-passport concept is suggesting that it will replace conventional small-molecule drug testing since analgesics and stimulants do not alter RDW benchmarks. The best comparison, according to Arthur, is the pre-race testing instituted in California and other jurisdictions several years ago for total carbon dioxide levels in the blood. Levels above a certain threshold were indicative of a practice known as milkshaking.We now have about 300,000 TCO2 levels in our database, Arthur said. We can follow a horses levels from start to start, from barn to barn. You just have to let people know youre paying attention.And when, Arthur was asked, was the last high TCO2 called in California?We havent had one in two years, he replied.With more persuasive pressure from veterinarians like Arthur and Allen, in both public and private sectors, the equine biological passport will become a reality, and horse racing will join the 21st century when it comes to policing its players. Hopefully, California will be the first of many racing jurisdictions to make such a commitment.It may be ambitious, but weve set a goal to be able to have a fairly good data test for this a year from now, Arthur said, referring to the biological passport for anabolic steroids. This is important, and Im excited about the prospects. I think most people realize that if we cant provide real integrity for horse racing -- not just the perception -- then nothing works.

Moeen Ali has said that the security arrangements that dominated Englands planning ahead of their tour of Bangladesh never crossed his mind during their opening practice match against a BCB Select XI in Fatullah on Tuesday. Manuel Neuer Jersey .I didnt think about it once. No one mentioned it and I cant remember thinking about it, he said on Wednesday, as the England players took a day-off from training.Moeen was speaking at the team hotel, which has been given several layers of extra security because of the presence of the England contingent. On their way to Fatullah, they were accorded VVIP security so that their long convoy could cut through Dhaka traffic at morning rush hour. There was no need for the fleet of vehicles to stop at any crossing or roundabout in the busy Bangladesh capital.The convoy flowed at one speed, before reaching the destination which was 25 kms south of their hotel. A typical ride takes about 90 minutes but this one took half the time.While the match was going on in Fatullah, the security agencies held their final rehearsal at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, where the first two ODIs and the second Test will be held. The forces involved in maintaining security in this series include the Dhaka Metropolitan Police, SWAT, Special Branch, Detective Branch, Rapid Action Battalion and the Bomb Disposal Unit.The Mirpur venue is now under full CCTV coverage. During the first ODI, there will be body checks at the main gate and at the gallery gate. When the England teams convoy nears the stadium, at least 1 km is blockaded, and only those on foot can go through. The stadium perimeter wall has been raised too. All the shops in the stadium will be closed on the eve of the match and each shop owner has to sign a bond that declares that their shops dont contain anything harmful.This is what the Bangladesh government, in conjunction with the BCB, assured Reg Dickason, the ECBs security advisor, in mid-August. Based on this, Dickason and the ECB sanctioned the tour.Although Englands assistant coach Paul Farbrace had said that the security in Bangladesh isnt as in your face as it was for him in Pakistan, the level provided this time is unprecedented, certainly for Bangladesh.And it must be doing a good job if Moeen didnt notice it in Fatullah where fans had to go through two walk-through scanners to watch them play. He said that he was happy with the measures taken during this tour.Im pretty laid back about it. My theorys a bit different. I think youre probably not safe anywhere, if youre meant to go youre meant to go.It doesnt mean Im going to go out but so far its been the best weve ever had in terms of security, and I think any other country would do well to beat it, he said.Moeen said that if the security provided during the Bangladesh Premier League is up to the mark, the English cricketers should not feel unsafe although the PCA has, earlier this week, warned them against participating in the Bangladesh Premier League on security grounds.Its up to the guys. I know the PCA have sent emails and stuff around to the guys. I dont see why they shouldnt go. If the securitys fine and the guys are happy then they should come. It probably wont be as tight as this but they would have good security still, he said.Moeen has been in Bangladesh before, playing for Mohammedan Sporting Club in the 2010-11 Dhaka Premier League and later in the 2013 BPL for Duronto Rajshahi. He said that he understood what it would mean to people in this country when England arrive for their tour.I know the people here. They are very nice, and generous. Ive always got looked after here. Ive got a lot of friends here. I thought it was important for us to come out. Its a great experience playing out here. Arturo Vidal Jersey .

MONTREAL -- Before the Montreal Canadiens home opener, the Bell Centre crowd gave a huge ovation to ailing goaltender Carey Price.After the game, they did the same for his replacement.Veteran backup Al Montoya, filling in for a third straight game while Price recovers from the flu, made 36 saves to lead the Canadiens to a 4-0 victory over the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.In three starts to begin the season, Montoya has a 1.30 goals-against average and a .962 save percentage.I feel Ive been trying to make a statement for a while, said Montoya, a backup most of his career who signed as a free agent this summer from the Florida Panthers. For me, this is just an opportunity to play.I dont try to overdo anything. I come out, have fun, play my game and let the rest take care of itself. The win is fantastic. Thats all we play for, but maybe (the shutout) was the cherry on top.David Desharnais scored twice and another offseason signing, Alexander Radulov, got his first goal as a Canadien with Montoya picking up an assist. Max Pacioretty also scored for Montreal, 2-0-1.When you see Monty make some of those saves, it gives us an opportunity to try to get him the shutout and try to get some goals for him, Pacioretty said. You have to credit most of that game to him because he was incredible.He played great all three games, but tonight, he gave us a chance. After our goal they had a flurry of chances. There were a couple of times in the first period when he had to come up big. The timeliness of those saves allowed us to get some momentum.Price fell ill just before the start of the regular season. He got back to work on his own on Sunday and had his first workout with his teammates in the morning skate on Tuesday. It was uncertain if he will be ready to play when the Arizona Coyotes visit Thursday night.The Penguins, coming off an overtime loss at home Monday night, played their first road game of the season.

We have to stay positive right now.We knew (Price) was not playing. We know they have a good team. It was opening game for Montreal. And Montoyas a good goalie too. He saved a lot tonight. But we need to score goals because we have great four lines. We had lots of power plays too (0 for 8), but made lots of mistakes.There were 30 shots taken in the first -- 17-13 for Pittsburgh -- but it was on only the second of the period that Pacioretty opened the scoring at 23 seconds as he took a feed in the slot from Jeff Petry and beat Marc-Andre Fleury with a wrist shot.Desharnais was parked alone in front of Fleury when he slammed in Paciorettys blind, backhand pass from the corner 12:07 into the second.Radulov scored 4:31 into the third as he burst down the right wing and cut in front. The Penguins challenged, claiming goaltender interference by Brendan Gallagher, but the goal stood.Desharnais was alone at the side of the net to tap in a cross-ice pass from Jeff Petry at 13:44 after sustained pressure in the Pittsburgh zone.Game notes The Canadiens made one lineup change, sending in Brian Flynn for Dan Carr. ... Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby (concussion) did not play. ... The Penguins went with Fleury in goal for a second consecutive night rather than use backup Mike Condon, who they claimed off waivers from Montreal two weeks ago. Condon lost the backup job in camp to Montoya. ... In pre-game introductions, former coach Jacques Demers, recovering from a stroke, brought out a torch in his wheelchair to pass to Pacioretty.

On Friday evening, play closed with Alastair Cook unbeaten on 64. Cheap Jerseys From China . England were leading by 17, an unlikely advantage given the balance of play over the first two days. The Edgbaston full-house rose to him, and to Alex Hales who had gone to 50 from the final ball of the day. The captain returned to the dressing-room amidst a flurry of back slaps. He had batted with a hitherto unseen freedom, as if the shackles of responsibility had been thrown to the wind, and thus inspired his men. It was a brilliant example of leadership, which comes in so many forms.He unclipped the armour, towelled himself down and remarked to the team that the game felt like a boxing match. For two days England had taken the punches, now they were giving a few back. It was, he figured, going to be much the same story over the next two days. There have been periods during Cooks career that his default position would have been to soak up the blows until the opponent wore himself out. Not these days. Confident and proud, he had hammered away - cuts and flicks off his pads, of course, but some magnificent driving of the ball too. The experience of 10,000 runs and more served him well. He saw the moment and took it.By Saturday evening, Cook was even more pleased than his wildest dream might have allowed. Though he fell early in the day himself, the others continued the momentum. Not that it was easy. Pakistan at first bowled impressively in an attacking manner and then, sensing the ball softening and the pitch becoming flatter, Pakistan bowled meanly. Ball after ball was speared wide of off-stump in an attempt to control the tempo of the match. Rather than panic, England changed down the gears, waiting until fatigue betrayed the tourists plan. When it did, England cashed in to a man.There was another virtuoso performance from Joe Root, cut short when a hundred beckoned. No man does tempo like Root. He brings movement and range to the game, adapting his method to the requirement of the moment. At the other end, James Vince watched and learnt, the result of which was the best Test innings he has played - a combination of beautiful flow and a previously unidentified steel. For a while, Gary Ballance let the game come to him but, once settled, he added a hint of risk to his otherwise risk averse nature. Johnny Bairstow hit them hard and ran them ragged. Moeen Ali sucked in the Edgbaston air that he so loves and paraded his touch and timing. England were suddenly miles in front and able to declare when they chose. Each one of the chosen batsmen had thrown the punches their captain had asked for.Cook then put the match out of Pakistans reach. It is his way. Old-timers reckon you keep the chaser interested, to encourage a hopeful response that leads to mistakes. The moderns reckon you crush all hope and choke the chaser to death.The problem England faced was that the ball would not move. Sami Aslam, at just 20 years of age, worked this out and played each one back down the line from whence it came. It was a masterclass, from an apprentice. He is the Pakistani cricketer of the hour. For the second time in the match, Azhar Ali batted with a nice feel, ensuring his team stayed in motion. Those who get stuck often find to their horror that they are sinking in quicksand.At 79 for 1, all seemed well with the Pakistan resistance. Then Cook came up with the first game-breaker. He convinced Moeen to flight the ball wide of off-stump but to keep trying to spin it hard. This brought his action into sync with his wrist. Suddenly, the ball came out with increased revs and the seam at 45 degrees. Cook himself went to gully, a most unusual position to an off-spinner and, bingo. Azhar drove hard to a ball that drifted away before it dipped just a little as the drive reached the point of impact. It fairly flew from the edge of the bat to the gully, where the captain reacted with haste and effect. He said afterwards that he didnt know much about it. He failed to mention that you never really do when you field that close; you just let instinct work its magic.The second game-breaker was less to do with Cook than the groundsman, whose wicket-ends from previous matches were suitably worn and dusty. The ball that pitched on the dry pitch, also bounced across and around these. After a few overs, Cook thought how handy, this thing might reverse swing. Which it did.Soon after 3 oclock, Steve Finn was roaring in - you aint seen nothing like the mighty Finn. He found a smidgeon of movement away from the bat which was quite enough at that pace and when delivered with such accuracy. Even Misbah succumbed. Then Chris Woakes was called back instead of Moeen and he fired the ball at the stumps and pads with an almost indecent expectation. Confidence is the most wonderful drug. Four big fish fell for a single run.Aslam watched on, doubtless confused by his elders but otherwise untroubled. All match, his judgement of what to play and what to leave alone had been unimpeachable. Tea was delayed to acknowledge the chance of a result within the 20-minute period of extension. Three minutes of that period remained when Sami shouldered arms to a fast ball that trimmed his off bail. There are two types of leave - a good one and a bad one. Ouch, his pain was our pain for this young mans courage, temperament and technical application deserved to take the game to the wire. He knew, as we knew, there was no saving the game now. The mighty Finn had won the day.James Anderson popped up with another wicket after tea; Stuart Broad too. The last pair delayed the inevitable and so Cook returned to magic Moeen and the man-of the-match (for the two street-smart innings he played) rewarded his captains faith with a sharp catch off his own bowling. They all rushed to a huddle of unbridled joy, except Cook who stood alone for a moment, slightly crouched, shaking the hands he had made into fists. The longer he plays, the more animated he becomes. His celebrations are ever so slightly showy now, which tells us he is comfortable in the captains skin and ecstatic at the results being achieved.These 1,200 words have included mentions of Cook, Hales, Root, Vince, Ballance, Bairstow, Moeen, Woakes, Broad, Finn, Anderson. It was not planned so, it is simply how the words turned out. There may not have been an England victory that so equally shared the efforts of each player. And there cannot have been many that were fashioned from a first innings deficit of 103.If Cooks team win at the Oval, they could go to number 1 in the world rankings. The captain has a lot to answer for. Cheap NFL Jerseys China .

Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. LANDOVER, Md. -- Coach Jay Gruden decided Friday to give Kirk Cousins the night off and start Colt McCoy at quarterback in the Washington Redskins preseason game against the New York Jets.He waited to tell McCoy until the very last minute.I was walking out of the tunnel, McCoy said. For me, thats the best-case scenario in my role. Ive got to be counted on at any point. I thought I handled it all right.Pressing McCoy and other backups into starting roles was Grudens goal, rather than protecting several of his key players in exhibition play. Receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Will Compton, and cornerbacks Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland were also healthy scratches in the 22-18 win.But the most surprising decision considering the circumstances was sitting Cousins, who didnt have an injury, warmed up in full uniform and was announced as the starter.McCoy had no inkling -- not at all -- that Gruden would rest Cousins for what the coach said was an opportunity to get his backup some quality work. Cousins watched the game from the sideline in full pads. Gruden denied there was any pushback.Theres no reason to argue, he said. This is my decision.No doubt the No. 2 quarterback on the roster, McCoy was 13 of 16 with two touchdown passes and an interception in the end zone that ended a 15-play, 67-yard drive. Calling the interception to Darrelle Revis embarrassing and one hed like to have back, McCoy considered his first-half showing efficient.My job is to distribute the football and stay ahead of the chains as best we can and convert on third downs when I need to, McCoy said. And for the most part I felt like we did that.Rookie Nate Sudfeld got the job done despite an inconsistent second half that started with him going 3 of 8 for 8 yards. The sixth-round pick out of Indiana picked up some valuable experience by leading Washington on an 11-play, 84-yard game-winning drive that culminated in a touchdown pass to Kendal Thompson.Sudfeld iss a developmental prospect, and this was another piece in his development. Wholesale NFL Jerseys. Gruden wanted to get the running game going after losing Matt Jones to a sprained shoulder, and that put the offense in some difficult positions.He was in some tough third down-and-longs -- very, very tough to convert for a rookie, Gruden said of Sudfeld, who finished 10 of 22 for 77 yards. But then the last drive he was able to get us in rhythm and make some big completions and guys made some plays around him, so I was happy to see Nate come back and make some big plays.Sudfeld watched as older brother Zach caught a touchdown for the Jets in their first game against each other and only got excited when teammates around him said, Its all right, you can be happy. He was happier after he shook off a couple of rookie mistakes by forcing throws and settling in on the final drive.I felt like we just were behind chains all day: penalties, bad throws, bad decisions, some drops, so it was really frustrating kind of earlier on when I was in, Sudfeld said. I knew once Id get a few completions Id get in a rhythm and I knew we could go down and score.Gruden expects Cousins and the starters to get significant playing time Friday against the Buffalo Bills in the third preseason game, though he doubts theyll play in the fourth the following week at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.That just means more time for McCoy to get game reps and for Sudfeld to keep up the learning process.As a rookie, everybody wants to be perfect, Sudfeld said. I want to throw every perfect pass. I want every ball to be the right read, the right decision. What is cool is its preseason and Im still young, still learning.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---This story has been corrected to show that Nate Sudfelds older brothers name is Zach, not Nate.

ATLANTA -- In just his third day on the job, Georgia Techs new athletic director made it clear hes a big fan of football coach Paul Johnson. Dennis Smith Jr. Youth Jersey .Todd Stansbury, who took over at his alma mater this week, erased any doubts about Johnsons future with a glowing endorsement Wednesday.Stansbury was especially impressed by the final game of the regular season, as Georgia Tech rallied from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to beat rival Georgia 28-27 in Athens. It was the third straight victory for the Yellow Jackets, pushing them to 8-4 and likely improving their bowl prospects.To me, that was a heck of a statement, said Stansbury, who attended Saturdays game. To go between the hedges -- I dont care who you are -- to win a game down there tells you a lot about where youre at.Stansbury also praised basketball coach Josh Pastner, who is in his first season of what will admittedly be a major rebuilding job. Pastner, who previously coached at Memphis State, was hired by the previous athletic director, Mike Bobinski, who left for the same job at Purdue.Hes a dynamo, Stansbury said about Pastner. In fact, in a lot of ways, he reminds me of a young Bobby Cremins, a reference to the longtime Georgia Tech coach who took the program to national prominence after it joined the Atlantic Coast Conference.Johnsons job security was questioned after the Yellow Jackets slumped to 3-9 last season, and the speculation intensified this year amid a three-game losing streak that knocked them out of ACC contention. But, if Stansbury was having any doubts about the coach, they were answered by the strong finish.In nine seasons at Georgia Tech, Johnson has a record of 69-48, which includes three trips to the ACC championship game, two appearances in the Orange Bowl and a 42-30 mark in conference play.Stansbury said his respect for Johnson goes beyond his record.Nobody out there wants to play us. That also tells you a lot about the state of the program and the fear that opposing coaches have of our head coach, the new AD said. I think we have a great coach that is known nationally for what he does, and hes had a lot of success here. My goal, and what I hope to bring to the table, is to help provide him what he needs to continue to build on that success and compete at the highest level.For all his success, Johnson has been a polarizing figure at Georgia Tech.Only a handful of schools use the run-oriented, triple-option offense that is the coachs specialty -- making it a convenient target of fans and media who believe the team should employ a more conventional system. Also, Johnson comes across as abrasive and downright snippy at times, which has rubbed plenty of people the wrong way.Stansbury said hes not least bit concerned about the triple-option, noting that Johnson has used it to win consistently throughout his career. Pointedly, he noted that in his previous job as Oregon States athletic director, he got an up-close look at the wide-open style of rival Oregon, which carried the Ducks all the way to the national championship game two seasons ago. This year, they plummeted to 4-8 and fired coach Mark Helfrich.If youre winning, I love your offense, Stansbury said. Having just come from Oregon -- where they have the wildest offense in America, an offense that everybody aspired to become for the last decade -- right now they dont like that offense.As for Johnsons personality, Stansbury said thats an area where he can help smooth out some of the rough edges. He intends to spend plenty of time with boosters and fans, pointing out all the positive things happening in the football program -- on and off the field.Its a tough job, Stansbury said. A lot of people only understand what happens on Saturday, what goes across the ticker. Typically, they dont know whats going on the other six days a week. Thats where I can help. ... My job is filling in the blanks of what those things are, regardless of any differences or likability. The proof is in the pudding. These are the results were getting. A lot of young men are benefiting immensely from life-changing benefits.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Marlon Humphrey Youth Jersey . -- Notre Dame left tackle Mike McGlinchey has about three months until he has to make a decision about his football future, but for now, the redshirt junior captain said he intends to return for a fifth year.Answering a question about his recruiting process, McGlinchey said Wednesday that he entered college with a five-year plan, and he hasnt deviated from that mindset.I have 19 games left here and thats what I fully intend to take on, McGlinchey said. I have a lot left to learn. Im not ready to go anywhere. I have the best in the business coaching me [offensive line coach Harry Hiestand] each and every day, and its to my benefit to stay here and learn from and theres nothing that I can do to want to change that. I have no intention of wanting to change that.Ive played a lot of football so far, but I have a lot left to accomplish and Im not going to put myself in position to go somewhere when Im not full ready to. Im fully confident that I will be ready at some point, but I dont think it will be after this season.Scouts Inc.s Todd McShay lists McGlinchey as the No. 22 overall prospect on his latest draft board, which was released two weeks ago.McGlinchey was asked whether his intentions for next season may change should his stock rise like that of his predecessor, Ronnie Stanley, who was picked sixth overall by the Baltimore Ravens in this years NFL draft.I dont know, I dont really pay attention to all that, McGlinchey said. Its not going to come down to a projection for me. Its going to come down to a mindset and a look in the mirror of whether or not Im ready to go. And based off of what Im feeling now, Im pretty confident that Ill be back here for a fifth year, and its not any major decision, groundbreaking decision. I fully intended to do that when I first got to college.Like I said, I have so much left to learn here and its not going to come down to projections or potential money that I can make. If Im good enough at the point where I feel ready to do it, Ill do it, and those projections will become reality at some point when its my time to be ready to do that.The 6-foot-7?, 310-pound McGlinchey is in his second year as a starter for the Fighting Irish, having played right tackle last season. He saw time in all 13 games as a redshirt freshman, too, and is a first cousin of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.McGlinchey is the third Notre Dame player in the past four years to say in-season that he plans to return to school for another year, but both previous players to say that -- defensive end Stephon Tuitt in 2013 and receiver Will Fuller in 2015 -- ended up declaring for the draft after those respective seasons.Redshirt sophomore quarterback DeShone Kizer, who is McShays No. 1 quarterback and No. 18 overall prospect, spoke after McGlinchey on Wednesday but wouldnt entertain draft questions when pressed, saying his focus is on this season.If you know me you know that thats the last thing I want to talk about, Kizer said. The circle that I keep close to me knows that those conversations arent going to happen till they need to. Marlon Humphrey Jersey .

"The incident? It wasnt that much," Grabovski told Chesnokov. "(Pacioretty) was choking me and I bit him. Dont stick your hands where you shouldnt. To be honest with you he was choking me pretty hard, to the point where I really couldnt breathe. And I couldnt pull his hand away at all. I tried to hit him with my other hand, but I couldnt because he was choking me. David Njoku Browns Jersey. There was nothing left to do but bite him." Pacioretty told the media that he had a tetanus shot following the incident. The NHL conducted a telephone interview with both players but did not levy any punishment to Grabovski since it could not determine for sure if the bite had taken place. "It was an emotional game," Pacioretty said two days after the incident. "It got out of hand. People were fired up." Both Grabovski and Pacioretty received 10-minute misconducts for their part in the scuffle, and the Leaf player received an extra two minutes for roughing.

LONDON -- Garbine Muguruzas first major tournament as a reigning Grand Slam champion didnt last long. Larry Ogunjobi Womens Jersey .Less than a month after winning the French Open, the second-seeded Spaniard was beaten in the second round of Wimbledon on Thursday by a Slovakian qualifier ranked No. 124.In the biggest upset of the tournament so far, Jana Cepelova beat a listless Muguruza 6-3, 6-2 on Court 1 in less than an hour to reach the third round at the All England Club.Muguruza was not as sharp Thursday as she was in this tournament last year, when she lost to Serena Williams?in the final, or as she was in beating Williams in the final at Roland Garros this month for her first major championship.My energy was missing a little today, Muguruza said. From yesterday I felt a little bit tired. During the match and after the match, Im like, Tough day today, empty today.She sprayed ugly shots all over the court Thursday and finished with 22 unforced errors compared to just nine winners. Cepelova had a first-serve percentage of just more than 40 percent but still outplayed Muguruza with 14 winners and 12 errors.She played great, no fear, trying a lot of stuff that was working, Muguruza said. But my energy wasnt there. I was trying but it didnt work at all.Cepelova, Slovakias No. 5 female player, had to win three matches in qualifying to make it into the main draw. Its not the first time she has knocked off a top player. Cepelova ousted Simona Halep in the first round at Wimbledon last year, also on Court 1, and beat Williams at a tournament in Charleston in 2014.Last year I beat Halep on the same court and I had great memories, the 23-year-old Cepelova said.

Since 2011, she has not been past the fourth round.Third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, the 2012 runner-up at Wimbledon, saved three match points and came back to beat 18-year-old Croatian Ana Konjuh, who accidentally stepped on a tennis ball and injured her right ankle in the next-to-last game.Radwanska pulled out the 2-6, 6-4, 9-7 victory in the second round after the 103rd-ranked Konjuh was broken while serving for the victory at 5-4 and 6-5 in the third set.Radwanska has made it to at least the semifinals at Wimbledon in three of the past four years.With play starting earlier on the outside courts after two days of bad weather, Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens?also advanced Thursday.Keys, seeded No. 9 after breaking into the top 10 for the first time this month, reached the third round with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 win over Kirsten Flipkens. Keys, a quarterfinalist last year, had 48 winners -- more than double the Belgian players 22.No. 18 Stephens, who reached the quarterfinals here in 2013, defeated Chinas Peng Shuai 7-6 (5), 6-2 in a first-round match that was delayed.Other womens winners included fourth-seeded Angelique Kerber advancing with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Varvara Lepchenko?and No. 5 Simona Halep, who beat Francesca Schiavone 6-1, 6-1. No. 14 Samantha Stosur was knocked out 6-4, 6-2 by 2013 runner-up Sabine Lisicki.No. 11?Timea Bacsinszky?beat Luksika Kumkhum 6-4, 6-2,?Annika Beck?ousted Britains Heather Watson 3-6, 6-0, 12-10, and Frances Kristina Mladenovic, seeded No. 31, was eliminated 6-3, 6-3 by Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- On the first day of workouts, new Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale approached point guard Mike Conley and told him he wanted him to be more aggressive scoring the ball this season.Thats all Conley needed to hear.The 10-year NBA veteran continued his high level of play Monday night, scoring 31 points as the Memphis Grizzlies got off to a fast start and defeated the Charlotte Hornets 105-90 for their fifth straight win.Conley came in averaging a career-high 18.3 points per game. He had five 3-pointers and shot 11 of 21 from the field, including a long 3 with 4 minutes left that thwarted Charlottes fourth-quarter rally and sent the crowd streaming toward the exits.He wanted me to be much more aggressive, Conley said of Fizdale. I believe Im one of the better point guards in the league and he does, too. Hes given me the opportunity to go out there and show it.Marc Gasol was dominant in the first half and finished with 13 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.The Grizzlies controlled the tempo from the start, jumping out to a 16-4 lead. They pushed their advantage to 24 at halftime, shooting 58 percent from the field, including 10 of 16 from 3-point range.It started with our defense, Fizdale said. Our guys are really taking pride in trying to build a championship defense. We all know the saying. Theyre really digging in and really taking it to heart that we have to get stops. We also said our defense will travel. And it traveled tonight and it led to being unselfish on the offensive end.The Hornets simply had no early answer for Gasol, who controlled the game with his shooting and passing.Gasol had 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting in the first half along with seven assists and six rebounds. He repeatedly got Roy Hibbert off his feet with pump fakes near the top of the key, drove the lane and either scored or set up teammates with easy shots.We didnt have the readiness we need to play against a good team and they jumped on us, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. Frankly that is two games in a row that we didnt play like the same team that got to 8-3. Thats part of learning annd evolving into the team I think we can be. Nacho Fernandez Spain Jersey. Its a long season and everyone is going to have nights like this.TIP-INSGrizzlies: Tony Allen was listed as questionable with a groin injury, but looked just fine and finished with 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting.Hornets: Cody Zeller missed his second straight game with a shoulder injury. Zeller is day to day but is still having trouble lifting his arm. ... Hornets owner Michael Jordan, who will receive the Presidential Medal of Honor on Tuesday, sat courtside.FRANK THE TANK HURTFrank Kaminsky turned in perhaps his best game as a pro for Charlotte, tying a career high with 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting. But his night ended badly when he left with less than 3 minutes to play with a sprained left ankle. Clifford said he wasnt sure the extent of the injury.STREAK IS OVERKemba Walker had 17 points for the Hornets, snapping a string of 11 straight games with 20 or more.NEW ORLEANS HANGOVERCharlottes Nic Batum and Marvin Williams were a combined 2 of 13 from the field, and the Hornets missed 11 of 31 free throws in losing their second straight game. Batum suggested the Hornets were still dwelling on coughing up a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter and losing to New Orleans last weekend.We had no energy, Batum said. We didnt get into this game. It might be a hangover from New Orleans because it was a tough one for us. I think we thought about that game too much tonight.GRITTY GRIZZLIESFizdale wasnt thrilled with his teams defense in the second half -- and he let the players know it.We got casual, Fizdale said. We got cool. I said, `Guys, were from Memphis. Theres nothing cool about us. Were gritty. We couldnt lose that edge. They knew exactly what I meant and we got our bearings back.UP NEXTGrizzlies: They look to make it six straight wins when they visit the 76ers in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.Hornets: Things arent going to get any easier for the Hornets, who host the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night.

Spain birdied the final hole to sit top of the leaderboard after the opening day of foursomes at the World Cup of Golf. Adidas Devils Jerseys .The duo of Rafael Cabrera Bello and Jon Rahm went one under at the par-four 18th to card a three-under-par 69 in testing conditions in Melbourne.It was a perfect end to an impressive round in the wind, with Cabrera Bello having earlier sunk a putt from distance to register an eagle at the eighth.It was a fun putt, he said. When I was seeing it, it looked like it couldnt miss and then all of a sudden it really missed and I dont know how it came back and went in.Its been a fun day. We played well. It was tough and tricky with the wind but Jon played great, I rolled some putts and hit some good shots as well. Its a score were proud of and also a score we deserve.Rahm added: Were playing foursomes in this kind of weather in this part of the world and on this kind of course. Its a little tricky to what Im used to playing in the States.Obviously we planned a strategy which had me hitting more tee-shots. He hit a couple of great shots, rolled some putts in and thats pretty much what we needed. It wasnt so much about hitting great shots -- it was about avoiding mistakes and we did that perfectly.Spain hold a one-shot lead over France, China and the United States, who all went round in 70 to be two under.The French pairing of Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque fired four birdies and two bogeys, as did Ryder Cup-winning American pair Jimmy Walker and Rickie Fowler, while Wu Ashun and?Hao-tong Li?of China posted five birdies and three bogeys.I gave Rickie a couple of tough putts, but he buried them, admitted Walker. Thats what it takes to play well and stay in a golf tournament.The course played tough today. I thought starting out today that if you shot anything under par, it was going to be pretty good. All the par fives played straight into the wind today. So we had to battle all day, and it really was a battle at times but I feel like we came out on top.England, represented by Chris Wood and Andy Sullivan, were a shot further back on one under along with the Italian pair of Francesco Molinari and Matteo Manassero, with Irish duo Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell level par alongside Sweden and Denmark.The Australian team and pre-tournament favourites, Adam Scott and Marc Leishman, could only manage one birdie in tough, windy conditions which leaves them five behind.Its very tough to gauge exactly whats going on out there when its blustery, Scott told the AAP. But its not that bad. You only feel bad because youre two over, but two under [which became three under] is leading. If you were four back after the first round of any other event, you wouldnt care at all.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors get an opportunity to exact some revenge for the first time this season when they host the Los Angeles Lakers in the opener of a three-day, home-and-home series Wednesday night.The club also meet Friday night in Los Angeles.The Warriors will take a 12-2 record into the doubleheader, having won eight in a row since a shocking 117-97 drubbing at the hands of the Lakers at the Staples Center on Nov. 7.It appears the early wakeup call was just what the Warriors needed. The two-time defending Western Conference champs have rebounded to win eight straight, including four in a row on a just completed Eastern swing.After being held to a season-low 97 points in the loss to the Lakers, the Warriors have responded with an average of 120 points during their winning streak.The impressive offensive run has propelled Golden State into the league lead in scoring (117.1) and assists (30.9) per game.The Warriors led the NBA in both categories last season -- albeit it with lesser numbers (114.9 points, 28.9 assists) -- en route to their record 73-win season.Weve been great on the road the last three years, Warriors guard Klay Thompson told reporters after Mondays 120-83 win at Indiana. We want to keep that mentality and carry this momentum back home.Were looking forward to facing this Lakers team that beat us.Golden State will welcome a key piece of their historic run back to Oracle Arena on Wednesday night when they duel for a second time -- the first time at home -- with their former assistant coach, Luke Walton.Walton, who led the Warriors to thheir 24-0 start last season while Steve Kerr was recovering from back surgery, is now the coach of the Lakers. Adidas Beau Bennett Jersey. Waltons presence and the three resulting high draft picks following 27-, 21- and 17-win seasons have made the Lakers one of the leagues most improved teams.With 2014 first-round pick Julius Randle averaging 13.3 points and a team-leading 8.1 rebounds, and 2015 first-rounder DAngelo Russell contributing 16.1 points and a team-high 4.8 assists, the Lakers have vaulted from the NBAs worst offense last season (97.3 ppg) to the leagues third-best (109.9).Even 2016 first-round pick Brandon Ingram has started to get into the flow, having scored in double figures three times in the last six games after just one in his first nine outings.Ingram came off the bench to score 11 in a 111-109 home win over the Oklahoma Thunder on Tuesday night in a game in which Russell sat out to rest a sore knee and Randle was limited to 21 minutes by a sore hip.Russell is not expected to play Wednesday in Oakland, either.The Lakers (8-7) are on the road Wednesday after an inconsistent homestand in which they lost two of four. Theyve dropped three of five overall, having allowed an average of 117.2 points in those games after holding four of their first 10 opponents -- including Golden State -- under 100.That didnt stop Walton from delivering a message to his club before heading north.Theyre probably the ones that are a little nervous right now, he said.

Joakim Noah and the New York Knicks are nearing agreement on a four-year deal worth $72 million, league sources told ESPNs Chris Broussard. Julian Green Jersey .Noah will meet with the Knicks on Friday in Orlando, Florida, sources said.The Knicks had emerged as the strong favorite to sign the free-agent big man, league sources previously told ESPN. Sources said multiple teams interested in the native New Yorker had all but conceded that the Knicks were his runaway preferred destination.No deals can be signed until July 7, but teams and free agents could start coming to verbal agreements on contracts starting at 12:01 a.m. ET Friday.The Knicks are eager to land a center this offseason, and Noah, a former All-Star, fits the bill.

The Knicks would have roughly $14.5 million in remaining cap space if they agree to these terms with Noah.The club hasnt ruled out the possibility of meeting with Kevin Durant, sources said.The Knicks interest in Rivers and location of the Noah meeting were first reported by The Vertical.Noah, 31, is coming off a 2015-16 season filled with injury. He suffered two significant shoulder injuries that limited him to 29 games last season. He missed almost a month with a left shoulder tear and had season-ending surgery to repair a left shoulder dislocation in January. He has spent a portion of his summer at The Peak Performance Project in Santa Barbara, California.ESPNs Marc Stein and Nick Friedell contributed to this report. Miguel Ibarra USA Jersey .

When the new AFL womens league kicks off next year, it will be more than just something to fill the off-season void.For a generation of female athletes, it will mean another door opening in the male-dominated world of professional team sports.Earning a decent wage as a woman in sport has never been easy, and there are still barriers to participation.Many of the future AFL womens stars started out playing on male football teams because there were no girls teams, or didnt get the chance to play until they finished school.But netball great Liz Ellis can see small steps being made towards equality for girls like her five-year-old daughter Evelyn.The first Saturday of the Olympics, her and I sat and watched the television and we flicked between the womens rugby sevens, the womens basketball and the womens soccer, Ellis told AAP.They were the three things on offer. And she looked at me and said Mummy, why dont boys play sport? ... I said because theyre busy ironing.That whole mindset has changed. Kids this age are looking at the television and saying big girls play sport so of course Im going to play sport and I would imagine that would translate to the schoolyard.Winning over girls like Evelyn is becoming increasingly important for the rival codes.While netball remains a powerhouse, the number of girls playing Auskick grew 21 per cent in 2016 and soccers popularity continues to grow.We keep talking about the competition at the elite level but I actually think the competition is starting now for the junior dollar, Ellis says.Thats good, because it will keep all the sports on their toes. Theyll make sure that their product is exactly what the marketplace wants.Increasingly, the market is demanding fair and equitable pay deals.The AFL drew heavy criticism when it proposed paying most female footballers a $5000 salary for the 22-weeks of their inaugural pre-season and season proper.A fairer deal has since been agreed upon, with the minimum wage lifted by 70 per cent from $5000 to $8500 to help players cover the cost of private health insurance.The deal also covers football boots and runners, an interstate travel allowance, income protection insurance, out-of-pocket medical expenses and childcare for mothers of infants.While the league is not expected to be profitable anytime soon, the AFL views its development as an important step towards engaging more female fans.Netball has lead the way on compensation, increasing its minimum wage to $27,375 and including private health cover for all players, while female cricketers earn at least $18,000 if they play both the one-day and Twenty20 domestic leagues.At the other end of the spectrum, some W-League soccer players receive an allowance of just $60 per week, while the struggling WNBL has no broadcast deal and no minimum wage for its players. Danny Williams Jersey. Its a disappointing state of affairs for Lauren Jackson, widely considered Australias greatest female basketballer, who is pushing for change in her role as commercial operations manager with the Melbourne Boomers.The WNBL has always had to fight to retain quality talent given the better pay on offer overseas, and Jackson says its no surprise players are being tempted to swap codes.Right now its happening because professional sports in Australia dont pay women enough money to stay in one code, she told AAP.Basketball is one of the only sports where you can go overseas as a woman and make lucrative money, enough money to mean you dont have to work in the future if you dont want to.The next couple of years are going to be crucial for the survival of the WNBL. I think theres enough people that want to see it succeed that well make it succeed ... (but) systems are going to have to be put in place.Jackson isnt sure if she would have been tempted to try her hand in the AFL womens league. Her mum, a former Opal, played the odd game of footy alongside her big brothers in the Ovens and Murray amateur footy league but basketball was always the family passion.Ellis personally reckons she would have made a decent ruckwoman, and says shes not surprised by the code-hopping.Of course I would have had a go at it, she says.I wasnt surprised to see players sign up for it. I think its terrific. What it does is create that level of competition because its made sports like basketball and cricket all step up and say right, weve got to look after our athletes. I couldnt think of a better thing.But while womens sports have made progress in recent years, theres still a long way to go.Jackson describes a recent phone conversation with a close friend who casually referred to a young male tennis player as acting like a woman on the court.People dont realise theyve got these sort of attitudes but when youre saying you throw like a girl or youre acting like a woman, youre offending the hell out of me, she says.Its so prevalent in our society and its just there. Nobody addresses it because nobody wants to talk about it. Its this attitude that women arent as good as men.Its something that we have to change for the next generation of kids so that they dont have to face these problems and feel like a lot of women in sport.

"I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. DENVER -- Starter Jon Gray pretended he was closing out the first inning.Anything to avoid a pattern of early game hiccups.That particular approach served him well, too, with Gray pitching six scoreless innings to help the Colorado Rockies beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 8-1 on a gusty Monday night.Gray (9-6) surrendered four hits and struck out eight in a crisp performance for his first win since Aug. 2.I feel like sometimes you can out-aggressive people. I like to do that, Gray said. Bring a little intensity and cruise from there.Gray started strong, which hasnt always been the case this season. Of the 72 runs he has allowed, 34 have been scored in the opening two innings.In this game, not even a third-inning downpour could interrupt his concentration.Gray ran into trouble in the fifth with two on and one out. Adrian Gonzalez sent a sinking liner to center that Charlie Blackmon hauled in as he slid on the slick grass. Gray pointed his glove toward the centerfielder in appreciation.That was awesome, Gray said. That really helped me out a lot.DJ LeMahieu had a two-run double in a five-run seventh that turned a pitching duel into a rout.Kenta Maeda (13-8) was electric once again at Coors Field -- except for a hanging slider that Nick Hundley hit for a two-run homer in the fourth. The right-hander with the quirky delivery allowed four hits over five innings. Maeda has a 2.12 ERA in three starts at the hitter friendly park.Overall, I thought I pitched pretty well, Maeda said through a translator. It was that one pitch which was a slider inside that was definitely a mistake pitch.The Dodgers had a momentary scare when All-Star rookie shortstop Corey Seager was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Chris Rusin in the seventh. He appeared to be in quite a bit of pain as he made his way to first base, but remained in the game. Seager was hit earlier in the game. The team said X-rays were negative.Seager wont play Tuesday, but that was already planned.It always hurts when you get hit, said Seager, whose team finished with five hits.

Theres a lot still out in front of him that he has to be able to do before he gets into a game, manager Walt Weiss said.FANTASY DRAFTRoberts has a new player on his team -- Julio Jones, the game-changing receiver of the Atlanta Falcons. Jones may not help the Dodgers win the NL West, but could lift Roberts and his team to a fantasy football title.The Dodgers held their league draft in Denver on Sunday.

ESPN rounds up all the reaction from up and down the Spa-Francorchamps paddock following the 2016 Belgian Grand Prix. Dave Henderson Athletics Jersey .MercedesNico Rosberg (1st): I am so happy to win here in Spa at this legendary track. It wasnt an easy weekend for us. We had to work a lot on the setup - but in the race it was perfect. The stints on the medium tyres were really good and I felt really comfortable at the start on the softs too. Our car was really great today, so thank you to the team for all their hard work in getting it spot on. Its great for the team that Lewis was able to recover to finish in third place, so overall a great result for us. It was a great atmosphere here with all the Dutch people coming to see Max. They shouldnt be sad because he is still young and Im sure he will have a lot more races here with much better results. Now, its only a few days until Monza. The penalties for Lewis made things easier for me today -- but he will be back in the battle for the win again next weekend, which will be exciting.Lewis Hamilton (3rd): If youd offered me third coming into this race with all the penalties I would definitely have taken it! I really wasnt expecting that! As I said yesterday, I really didnt know what would be possible today. But I came into the race with a positive mental attitude and it all came together. It was a steep mountain to climb -- but we did it together as a team. Im so happy and so proud of everyone. Changing so many parts on the car, it would have been easy to make mistakes. But the guys did an exceptional job and all three Power Units worked flawlessly. I think I now have more engines than most of the others, which is great. Now, the fight is really on for the second half of the season. The car worked really well out there today.The most difficult part of the race really was the mental approach from the beginning in terms of whether I risked it all at the start or hung back and tried to pick my way through carefully. I kind of went for somewhere in the middle -- but then all this commotion happened along the way and Im grateful I could capitalize on that. Coming from the back and having to make overtaking manoeuvres, I had to push a little bit more than youd normally plan to, so we went for a three stop strategy. Whether or not I would have made it on a two stop with the medium Im not sure -- but Im glad we didnt take that risk. The team made the right call. Ive been so impressed with the fans here this weekend. Naturally, a lot of them were here for Max. But Ive seen loads of Brits here too and generally I feel like Ive had great support right the way through, so thank you everybody.Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport: A fantastic result this afternoon for the whole team after what proved a pretty tough weekend for us. Nico had it all under control today from the moment the lights went out. It was a perfect drive, with great pace on each of the tyres he used and he just steadily built the gap to Ricciardo behind him when he needed to. He didnt put a foot wrong and delivered everything possible. On the other side, Im delighted for Lewis climbing back up to P3 after starting from the back.Sure, we benefitted from the chaos at Turn 1 and the decision of some people to pit under the Safety Car before the red flag came out. But we had decided to run an aggressive three-stop strategy with him so that he could attack the other cars and move forward today and we stuck to our guns after the red flag. Doing something different to Ricciardo was the only possible way to beat him -- and that was a long shot anyway. But Lewis drove a squeaky clean race and really deserved the podium finish -- at one point in the final stint, we thought maybe we could chase Ricciardo down. But then even the medium tyre started to blister from Lewis and we played it safe from there. Most of all, I want to say congratulations to the whole team.To have prepared the engine penalty strategy for this weekend, to get everything ready and to deliver it perfectly at the track with no mistakes at all really shows that we are working in a great way. Our mechanics were faultless all the way through this demanding challenge and Im really proud of what they achieved. Likewise, the engineering team worked their way from a pretty tricky situation on Friday to delivering the kind of performance we are used to seeing this afternoon. A super impressive job all round and a great way for us to come back to work after the summer break.Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical): We knew coming into today that it was going to be a tough race. Not just because we were starting from the back, but because tyre endurance on all three compounds was very low and we didnt feel we had a great performance margin to several of our competitors. As it turned out, a dramatic start to the race ruled several of the main contenders out of the running straight away. Meanwhile, Nico immediately showed good pace from the start and, with all the incidents ahead of him, Lewis made good progress. We lucked in with the Safety Car because many teams stopped and lost position, while we deliberately chose to stay out on a two stop plan.We then lucked in again with the red flag, which effectively created a fresh race and sealed our positions in first and fifth. Going into that with two sets of the medium compound available for Nico, we had a safe two stints to the flag. With Lewis, we chose a three stint strategy as we knew he had to push to improve on his fifth place and he only had one sets of mediums available having started on that compound.Were delighted to get two cars on the podium this weekend, as it didnt look like it would be an easy task earlier in the weekend. Nico drove superbly to manage the tyres in difficult conditions and take a dominant win. And, regardless of the circumstances, it was a really great drive from Lewis to come from 21st to third. We leave Belgium thoroughly satisfied and with a tantalising battle in store with our drivers separated by such a narrow margin.FerrariSebastian Vettel (6th): Today I had a brillant start. I was in second place and half a car ahead, so I could dictate the way. I could hardly see Kimi, he was in my blind spot, with Max even further right and out of sight. So I dont think what Max was trying to do would have worked. Obviously he didnt allow Kimi to move into the inside, and that prevented both of them from clearing Turn One in a normal way. We all three touched and collided, and this was bad news for Kimi and for me. Of course, with hindsight, I would have given more room to the inside, but you want to make the corner and try to race, and I gave room to Kimi, but not to three cars.Max had a bad start, he was falling behind. I think we have seen in the last couple of years that if you really dive down the very inside,the track is falling off and you basically go straight. The cars ahead have priority, and this is something he needs to understand. In that regard there was no way he could have made the corner without making contact. I dont think that me and Kimi have to change what we are doing, we respect each other and its a pity when two cars of the same color collide.Kimi Raikkonen (9th): After the start, at the first corner, Sebastian didnt see that there was another car on the inside: he expected me to turn but I couldnt, so I found myself stuck in the middle with nowhere to go. We ended up touching each other and this was pretty bad for the rest of the race. After that it was an uphill battle: the floor of my car was a bit damaged, but we managed to recover some positions and do the best we could, even though it was not easy. Im fine with fair racing and close battles, but, in my opinion, what happened at Eau Rouge with Verstappen was not correct.I was going full speed and I had to back off before Turn 5 because he just turned in front of me when I tried to overtake him. Ive never had that with any other driver, if I hadnt braked hard I would have hit him at full speed and it would have ended up in a massive accident. Its hard to say where we would have been without the issue at the first corner, but the car felt well throughout the weekend. This was not the result that we were looking for, its a pity but thats how racing goes sometimes.Maurizio Arrivabene, Team Principal: Its such a pity. Today we probably had the pace for finishing the Grand Prix with both drivers on the podium. Unfortunately, the accident at the first corner ruined our race. The positives we can take is that, despite extensive damage, our car proved fast and resilient throughout. And this bodes well for our home Grand Prix next week at Monza. Also, the team behaved strongly and was united both on track and back at Maranello. So, starting from tomorrow, well start preparing the Italian Grand Prix.WilliamsValtteri Bottas (8th): It was a disappointing day and a shame that we wasted the opportunity that we had at the beginning of the race. We were in a great position after the start and when the safety car came in we should have pitted immediately. We then lost many positions. We tried to get the most out the race that we could after that, and Im happy that we could at least get some points in the end, but overall it was disappointing. Looking ahead, weve got another race next week and obviously we need to learn from today. Hopefully well be better in Monza.Felipe Massa (10th): It was a very difficult race. Trying to look after the tyres until the end and checking the tyre pressures while we were racing was tough. It was difficult to stay out long enough on track. When the tyres were there we were fighting for a great position but when the tyres went off we just couldnt fight anymore.Rob Smedley, Head of Performance Engineering: It was a disappointing race to come out with so few points. The key point of the race for us was the safety car when Magnusson had the huge accident and damaged the barrier. We thought it would be a red flag and so planned our strategy around that, however the red flag didnt come out very quickly, and so we had to pit Valtteri. The red flag did finally come out, as predicted, however by this point it had ruined our race. From then on our afternoon was set as we just didnt have the pace to move further forward. We will now go to Monza and try harder.Red BullDaniel Ricciardo (2nd): Im pleased with that result, I knew a podium was on today. Of course you can never guarantee, but I knew if we had the pace that we did on Friday, that we would be able to get there. With Lewis starting at the back it was an opportunity to get at least a second place, and we got that. A win is always the big target, but Nico had the pace that we expected, so second is the best we could have done. There was a lot going on at the start and I actually hit some of the debris which damaged the front wing, so the red flag helped us as we were able to repair it.Before that the car was quite affected. Then, after that we got going; there wasnt too much action for me, but I was just trying to be consistent and the outcome was good! The fans this weekend have been awesome. The driver parade was great, 99% of the fans are here for Max but they were cheering everyone and it was good sportsmanship; Max got bigger cheers but they were waving and cheering for everyone, it was really good to see. So big respect to the Dutch and Belgian fans, they were really cool.Max Verstappen (11th):?Today was very unfortunate. I didnt start as well as I wanted but I got up the inside for the first corner then got squeezed by the two Ferraris. In the contact my front wing and the floor got destroyed so then the car was very difficult to drive and the race was gone. Still, I tried my best to come back especially for all the people who were cheering me on in the stands, but unfortunately I didnt get in the points. Luckily we got Daniel on the podium so we still scored some more points for the team. Its good to have another race next week and well try to do the best job possible at Monza. The race didnt turn out the way I wanted but before that we had a great weekend here in Spa and it was great to have some interaction with all the fans who came out to support me.Christian Horner, team principal:?An impressive performance by Daniel today; a great disciplined drive, looking after his tyres and making an effective two-stop strategy work. To finish second, at the type of venue that we werent expecting to be our strongest, is an amazing result. He picked up a little bit of damage after the first corner but we were able to repair that in the break (during a red flag), and he drove a strong race thereafter. Maxs race was compromised after turn one. After an average start he got inside of Kimi into that turn but unfortunately he was squeezed from the outside by Sebastian and three into one quite simply doesnt go.The resulting damage significantly compromised the aerodynamics on the underside of the car costing him about a second and half per lap. He made a strong recovery to finish unfortunately just outside the points, Its clearly not the result he was looking for in front of such an enormous crowd that came out to support him all weekend but hopefully a lot more positive races to come. For the team to be coming away from Spa still second in the Constructors Championship, and having extended our lead over Ferrari, is more than we could have envisaged.Force IndiaNico Hulkenberg (4th): Today is a massive result for the team and Im feeling very happy with fourth place. There were some unusual circumstances, but we were there to take the opportunities and pick up some very important points. At the start of the race things worked out really well for me. The first lap was great; I was up in second place following Nico [Rosberg] and pulling away from the group of cars behind me. Unfortunately, the red flag proved costly because it neutralised things and bunched everybody back up again. The restart was clean and the rest of the race was quite controlled - just managing my pace and looking after the tyres. There was a battle with Fernando [Alonso] coming out of the pit lane, but we managed to stay ahead and keep the fourth position. Maybe if things had worked out slightly differently, we could have been on the podium, but Im satisfied with the fourth position.Sergio Perez (5th): Its been a great day for the team and I am very pleased to finish fifth, but it was quite a tough race from the start. I chose a wide line going into turn one, but had to go far on the outside to avoid the first corner accident and that cost me a few positions. I dropped down to ninth and that compromised my race. I managed to make some good progress early on, but every time I switched to new tyres I found myself having to put a lot of stress on them as I needed to attack Felipe [Massa] then Fernando [Alonso]. I still managed to make my way through and bring home a good result for the team. Moving to fourth in the constructors championship is a fantastic achievement for us, but we cant get carried away because theres still a very long way to go in the season. Hopefully we can keep our momentum going and keep scoring strongly.Robert Fernley, Deputy Team Principal: We can rightly be proud of a great team result - the first time weve put both cars in the top five since Bahrain 2014. It was a fantastic weekend, one that highlights once more the special relationship we have with Spa-Francorchamps. Everyone in the team did a great job and we can now celebrate a very strong race. We can even be a bit disappointed, too, because without the Safety Car and red flag, Nico could well have been on the podium, but considering how the race turned out, we feel pretty content with the result. We are now fourth in the championship, having scored 89 points since Monaco, but we wont let our guard down. There is still a long way to go and the battle in the midfield is just going to get closer. We will continue to work hard and hopefully bring home more special results between now and the end of the season.RenaultJolyon Palmer: Kevin Magnussen: Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director:Toro RossoDaniil Kvyat (14th): We pushed quite hard today and after the red flag there was some hope - at one point it even looked like we could dream of scoring some points... I think we did a great job with the tyres, but we started to struggle with straight-line speed and the deficit was more and more obvious after the second pit-stop. Its a shame, but at least we can say we did our absolute best today. Unfortunately not many people will see this, as we only ended up P14 and out of the points, but its not that bad. We will have to take our opportunities at tracks that suit us better.Carlos Sainz (DNF): How frustrating to have to retire from the race because of a puncture! I did one of the best starts of my life and by the end of the first lap I had gained seven positions and was racing in P7... But I then went over some debris from other cars at the start of my second lap and the tyre ended up exploding after Eau Rouge. It definitely wasnt the best moment of my life, especially after doing such a good start! Its frustrating to have to end the race like this, but I will keep fighting and forget today as quickly as possible.Franz Tost, Team Principal: Even before arriving here we knew that Spa -- and also Monza -- would be a difficult race for us, because we have the disadvantage of running last years engine. This was actually the case in the end and it also hurt our qualifying pace yesterday, as we ended up P15 and P19. Today Carlos did a fantastic start and gained seven positions during the first lap, racing in P7. Unfortunately, he had a tyre failure.I assume that the tyre was destroyed by some debris from the collision in the first corner and therefore Carlos had to retire. Daniil performed a very good race. Strategy wise, the team also did everything correctly, but in the end our lap times were simply too slow to score some points. We will now analyse everything and hopefully we will come back stronger, especially in Singapore. Before that, lets focus on another tough race for us, the teams home Grand Prix in Monza next week.SauberFelipe Nasr (17th): A disappointing race. I had a good start and was able to make up some positions running temporarily in P11. Because of a lot of debris on track, I got a rear left tyre puncture, which was very unfortunate. I had to pit early, which compromised the whole race. The floor ,as well as the diffusor, was also damaged by the debris. That surely had an influence on the lap times. Now we need to shift our focus onto the upcoming race weekend in Monza.Marcus Ericsson (DNF): It was a tough day. When I went out to the starting grid we identified issues with the cooling system, so we had to make some adjustments. This meant that I had to start the race from the pit lane. It was a good first lap, I was able to catch the group ahead, but then suddenly I lost sixth gear on lap three. That was the end of my race; I had to retire. It has been a weekend with many issues, but I am sure we will be stronger soon.Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal: A disappointing result, after we could see in the practice sessions that the aerodynamic characteristics of the car had generally improved. This weekend was compromised by several incidents with the power unit. Also the race was influenced by factors which did not lie in our hands - the gearbox issues on Marcus car, as well as the debris which caused a puncture and damages to Felipes car. Nevertheless, Felipe put in a good performance driving-wise as well as with regards to the tyre management.McLarenFernando Alonso (7th): It was an exciting race to drive and I had a good feeling throughout.We had good pace this weekend; we did better than expected on this track; we were in the top 10 with Jenson yesterday in qualifying; and weve scored points today. Believe me: a few months ago that would have been unthinkable on a circuit like this. Thats progress -- real progress. And, after all the bad luck weve had so far this weekend, we finally got some good luck today. We started last, but we managed to keep away from all the incidents, gain some positions thanks to the Safety Car and then a couple more because of the red flag.We then put on fresh tyres and found ourselves in fourth place -- and, better still, we had the pace to manage the situation afterwards. Okay, we couldnt hold back Lewis [Hamilton], Checo [Perez] or Seb [Vettel], because they were just too fast, but we had enough pace to keep Valtteri [Bottas] behind all the way to the flag. Finally, its great news that we overtook Toro Rosso in the Constructors World Championship -- I think we can be regularly in the points from now on. So, to sum up, this weekend we saw evidence of very good progress from the team; were moving in the right direction, thats for sure.Jenson Button (DNF): We looked really good for points today, so its disappointing that we didnt score any, but it happens. Ive been around long enough to know these things happen. I had a really good start -- I got ahead of a Williams, pulled in front of a Red Bull and drew alongside a Force India. But then I lost a lot of places at La Source and ran wide. I rejoined the track, but Pascal [Wehrlein] made contact with me at Turn Five, damaging the rear of my car. There was a lot of damage and we were unable to complete the race. After such a short race, theres not much more to say!Eric Boullier, McLaren Racing Director: Having suffered problem after problem yesterday and the day before, Fernando enjoyed a trouble-free run today, forcing his way from the back of the grid to a fine seventh place by the end of a truly dramatic Belgian Grand Prix. By contrast, very soon after the start, Jensons car was hit by another car, through no fault of Jensons, and we judged the damage it had sustained too serious to feel able to authorise him to continue. It was massively frustrating for him and for us, because hed shown very impressive pace here so far this weekend. That being the case, were encouraged by our car performance here, overall, and were optimistic of building on this weekends decent form when we arrive in Italy in a few days time.Granted, Monza is the fastest racetrack on the Formula 1 calendar - and as such our car should in theory be unsuited to its very long straights -- but well do our very best to score points there all the same. Talking of points, the half-dozen that Fernando scored today have lifted us ahead of Toro Rosso in the constructors world championship table; as a result were now in sixth place. Thats not great, but it shows that things are going in the right direction for us. Last but not least, on behalf of all at McLaren-Honda, I want to say get well soon to our ex-driver and old mate Kev [Magnussen] after his massive shunt at Eau Rouge today.Yusuke Hasegawa, Honda R&D Co Ltd Head of F1 Project & Executive Chief Engineer: Fernando drove a brilliant race today, and the team did a phenomenal job to get him from the very back of the grid to finish P7 - and at Spa too! This is another confirmation that our power unit has indeed taken a step forward, and Im happy and thankful to everyone for all their hard work. Jenson was unlucky to retire at the very start of the race, when he was unexpectedly hit from behind.He had a strong start to the weekend, and it was a great shame that he couldnt capitalise on his very good P9 starting position. Of course, were still hungry and not completely satisfied by these results, but after each race we go home encouraged by our progress and this one is no different. Next up is Monza, which is probably the toughest circuit of the year for us, but well prepare as usual to give our all.ManorEsteban Ocon (16th): It wasnt an easy race, thats for sure, but Im very satisfied with my first Grand Prix. There were so many things happening in that first lap; it was crazy out there. It was hard for me to stay away from it all and at the same time push hard and fight for position. On top of that I had to remember all the procedures as well; its not difficult, its just remembering them in the heat of the moment and of course everything happens so much faster in F1. It was not easy to manage the red flag situation, but most importantly Im glad Kevin seems to be okay. So I think we did the maximum with the car today and Im happy with 16th position and finishing ahead of the Sauber.I learned a lot about managing the race, particularly with all the different situations going on. This track is so high for degradation that it was also a really good test of tyre management; Im very pleased with that because, really, we didnt have the tyres left to push until the end. As for what next, well, Im not tired, I could easily do another 24 hours! But, I guess I have to wait a week. Theres a lot to think about and reflect on, but Im ready for Monza, where I want to work on Qualifying and make a good step forward. My thanks to everyone in the team for a great weekend and Im so excited for the next one!Pascal Wehrlein (DNF): I was really unlucky. In Turn 5 the two drivers in front of me were fighting for position, braking late, missing the line, so I tried to overtake them into Turn 6 on the outside. Then, both came back on the line and when I saw that I wanted to brake and move to the inside but I couldnt avoid the crash. Im really unhappy about it but that is what can happen on the first lap when youre starting in the midfield; that part I cant complain about and thats where I want us to be starting next time in Monza.I think P9 in Q1 was a really good measure of how strong we were here this weekend. Thats the bit Ill take forward into Monza and work to maintain. Of course, Im sad for the team because of what could have been today in the race, especially with all the incidents that created some opportunities. But, well come back fighting next weekend. Not long to wait!Dave Ryan, Racing Director: A mixed result today. On the one hand, a great debut by Esteban, who didnt put a foot wrong all weekend. He finished his first race in 16th place and Im sure it will be an upward trajectory for him from here. Im really looking forward to seeing how he gets on in Monza.For Pascal, a real disappointment that he had to retire at the end of the first lap, but huge positives for him to take away from this race. His performance all weekend has been outstanding and, again, really excited to see how he takes this forward to Monza. From a team perspective, generally its been a good event for us, but we have had a few hiccups, which we need to sort out before Monza. That will be our focus over the next few days.HaasEsteban Gutierrez (12th): It wasnt the result we expected. We were fighting very hard to get into the top-10 and even though we didnt manage to get there, I think we did well. The balance of the car felt good and we had reasonable pace. This is one of the things we need to keep up for the coming events because its whats going to keep us consistent and help us get the most out of the car. I feel very grateful for the team. They did a great job and had some great pit stops. We lost some time on the safety car before the red flag, but sometimes it goes that way. We finished P12, so Im not completely satisfied, but we will keep pushing.Romain Grosjean (13th): Well, it was a very good start and a very good first lap. Unfortunately, I didnt have any top speed in the beginning of the race. Something was not going quite right. It took a lot of time to solve that. My last stint wasnt bad. I made up a lot of time on everyone, but the damage had already been done. We had a shot at a good finish today. On the positive side, Im much happier with the car than I was recently, so thats at least great. Its just a shame we lost an opportunity for a good result.Guenther Steiner, Team Principal: A very interesting and exciting race for the fans. For us, it was a bit up and down. We got away very well, but then with the red-flag scenario, we were pushed back and couldnt get further to the front. In general, both drivers showed good speed. We had a small issue with Romains car with the energy recovery system, which the team fixed within a few laps and in the end we finished 12th and 13th. We wouldve liked to get in the points, but that didnt work out. However, we showed we can do it if the circumstances are right. We still hope to get some more points this year and we look forward to Monza.PirelliPaul Hembery, Pirelli Motorsport Director: It was an action-packed race where we saw a wide variety of strategies right from the start -- with all three compounds seen on the starting grid -- which were further influenced by the racing incidents and red flag period. Nonetheless, Nico Rosberg won with two tyre changes, as we had predicted, thanks to the medium compound proving to be especially effective in the unusually high track temperatures seen at Spa all weekend, which made tyre management particularly crucial. The top eight adopted tyre strategies that were all slightly different, including the impressive performances from Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso, who raced their way up from the bottom of the grid using alternative strategies. Yonder Alonso Jersey . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break.

Alexi Ogando (5-3) allowed two runs four hits over five innings to earn his first win in his last five starts, shrugging off a two-run homer Mike Trout hit in the first inning on his 22nd birthday. The victory was the right-handers first since May 15 at Oakland. The Rangers, who have won nine of 10, were a season-worst six games out of first place on July 28 after getting shut out for the second straight time at Cleveland. Tommy Hanson (4-3) was charged with five runs, seven hits and three walks in 4 2-3 innings following four straight no-decisions. The Rangers, who had six stolen bases in their 8-3 win on Tuesday night, picked up right where they left off with a season-high seven steals — tying the Angels record for most allowed. Four of them came in the first inning against Tommy Hanson and batterymate Hank Conger — including a double-steal by Leonys Martin and Elvis Andrus. Mitch Moreland drove in the only run of the Rangers hitless first inning with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly after an intentional walk to Beltre. But the Angels responded with two runs in the bottom of the first, as Kole Calhoun drew a leadoff walk and Trout followed with a drive to left-centre for his 20th home run. It was the straight year that Trout homered on his birthday. Last year at Oakland he became the fifth player in major league history to hit one on the day he turned 21, joining Ted Williams, Frank Robinson, Alex Rodriguezz and Jason Heyward. Jarrod Parker Jersey. . The Angels All-Star centre fielder also robbed Craig Gentry of a home run in the fourth. Gentry was easily trapped off first base in the second inning on Jurickson Profars hit-and-run flyout to Martin in right field. But in the third, the Rangers hustled themselves into three runs and grabbed a 4-2 lead. Martin led off with a double, and Andrus just beat out a bunt single that Hanson fielded in front of the mound. Ian Kinsler followed with an RBI single, and Andrus scored when Beltre barely beat the relay to first from second baseman Grant Green on a potential double-play grounder to shortstop. Hanson threw two wild pitches that inning, one of them before giving up Morelands RBI single, then held his breath while left fielder Josh Hamilton caught Geovany Sotos bid for his first road home run of the season against the bullpen fence. Beltre made it 7-2 in the sixth with his 25th homer, a two-run shot off demoted starter Joe Blanton, who has given up 25 this season. NOTES: This is the first time Texas has had at least a share of first place since July 1, when the Rangers led Oakland by a half-game. ... The Rangers franchise record for stolen bases is nine, set on April 20, 2010 at Boston. ... Martin and Andrus each stole three bases, with Andrus reaching the 30 mark for the fourth time in five big league seasons. Andrus has stolen 14 consecutive bases since June 25, when the Yankees Chris Stewart threw him out at second with David Robertson on the mound. ... The Rangers have beaten the Angels a franchise-record seven straight times. ... The Rangers are 34-1 when scoring more than five runs.

ST. LOUIS -- A competing group wants to join forces with SC STL in building a new $200 million downtown St. Louis soccer stadium in hopes of attracting an MLS franchise, offering to pay $80 million to eliminate the need for public financing.SC STL unveiled a stadium plan Nov. 17 that calls for voters in April to consider funding up to $80 million of the project.The group Foundry St. Louis has also been pushing for a Major League Soccer franchise, though MLS clearly favors the SC STL plan. Commissioner Dan Garber said in a statement earlier this month that SC STL is the ideal ownership group that will provide St. Louis the best opportunity for a future expansion team.Foundry St. Louis CEO Dan Cordes, in a letter to Dave Peacock of SC STL dated Nov. 23 and released Tuesday, offers to join forces while criticizing the public funding aspect of the SC STL proposal. Cordes wrote that his groups involvement eliminates the need for St. Louis taxpayers to cover the gap through taxpayer-subsidized corporate welfare.MLS in St. Louis cannot and should not serve as an anchor dragging on city finances and services, Cordes wrote. Rather, it should employ minority-owned consultants, vendors and contractors, create sallaried and high-wage jobs, spur population growth and advance the conversation about racial equality and economic inclusion. Jimmy Butler USA Jersey. The letter does not elaborate on the source of Foundry St. Louis funding, but spokeswoman Jen Crichton said money would come from investors in the group. She declined to name the investors but said they have a combined net worth of $2.5 billion. SC STL spokesman Jim Woodcock declined comment.The MLS last year announced an expansion team in Minnesota, and plans another in Miami. League spokesman Dan Courtemanche said plans call for four additional teams, though a timetable for when theyd join has not been determined. Courtemanche said St. Louis is among eight markets that have publicly expressed interest.The SC STL open-air stadium would have 20,000 seats with the ability to expand to 28,500. It would sit next to St. Louis Union Station on land currently owned by the Missouri Department of Transportation. The city has an option to buy the site, but the value is still being appraised.---This story corrects spelling of Jen Crichtons first name.

Zach LaVine Bulls Jersey . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. Kris Dunn Authentic Jersey . Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. http://www.nbachicagobullsonline.com/zach-lavine-bulls-jersey/ . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. ATLANTA -- Lets face it, Robbie Lawler is not a brilliant fight promoter.The defending UFC welterweight champion does not produce many headlines, and he tends to say little about his opponents. Hes focused on himself, you know? Hes getting better in the gym every day. Hes not worried about the other guy. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.The best way to promote a Lawler fight is to show a Lawler fight. Thats his selling point -- entertaining, action-packed fights; the kind that might even intimidate future opponents. You want to take Lawlers title? Better be prepared for the worst 25 minutes of your life.Tyron Woodley, who will take on Lawler for the 170-pound title on Saturday at UFC 201 at Philips Arena, says hes up to the challenge.Robbie will bleed and smile and always keep coming, but you have to be intimidated by him to break from that, Woodley said. Thats actually his main attribute. But hes not the boogeyman to me. Im sorry. You put him at the foot of my bed, Im gonna open my eyes, take one look at him, and fall my ass right back to sleep.Its worth noting Woodley (15-3) has a long history with Lawler, which might help him humanize the champ more than others.Much of the pre-fight attention has been dedicated to whether or not the two are real teammates. They both represent American Top Team out of South Florida, although Woodley stopped holding his full-time camp there more than a year ago.Their relationship actually goes back well before Lawler joined ATT in 2013. It even goes back before Woodleys professional debut in 2009.Robbie was a guest referee for my last two amateur fights, Woodley said. I actually trained occasionally at his gym in Granite City, Illinois, which was 15 minutes from my house in St. Louis. We never sparred because Robbie wasnt doing much sparring at the time, but we wrestled a few times.I have video right now on a hard drive, me as an amateur fighter sitting in his gym saying, One day, Im going to be a UFC champion. Who the hell would have thought Id be fighting against the person whose gym I was in to make that happen? Those are things that I think make this a little more speciial. Lauri Markkanen Jersey. The two shared a gym again when Lawler joined ATT, but Woodley ultimately left to open a satellite gym in St. Louis. A former collegiate wrestler at the University of Missouri, Woodley also trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee, alongside his former college teammate Ben Askren.Since Woodley was the one who relocated, he will, technically, be staring across the cage at a team that once coached him. The 34-year-old says hes not concerned how that might affect the matchup.Are they that familiar with me? Woodley asked. I dont think they are. I think theyre extremely familiar with what they saw a year and a half ago. How much have they seen since? Ill be jumping off the cage in this fight for all they know, throwing spinning backfists and flying armbars. They have no clue what Im coming with.If Lawler does possess inside knowledge on Woodley, he certainly isnt hinting at it. As is the case before all his fights, Lawler says his entire focus is on himself. Hes hoping for a finish, rather than another five-round war, but if it comes to that, he knows where he stands.Its not something I worry about, whether my opponents have that heart in them or not, Lawler said. All I know is that I have it. If they end up having it too, thats when you see something special. But I dont know what the other guy is bringing to the table. Im doing what I can to get them out of there. Thats about it.Where many see a stoic, ruthless juggernaut, who (and this actually is a quote from Lawler) looks to claim an opponents soul in a fight, Woodley sees a beatable opponent who doesnt scare him one bit.He has been put away before, Woodley said. Jacare [Ronaldo] Souza? Nick Diaz? I remember those fights. I watched those fights. Tim Kennedys wrestling was too much for him. Lorenz Larkin was too fast. I possess all those skills, but better. Styles make fights, you know what I mean?I think hes showing a lot of caution before this fight because he knows my style -- he has to respect it.

South Africas ODI captain AB de Villiers will sit out the one-off match against Ireland on September 25 to allow himself more time to recover from the elbow injury that kept him out of the New Zealand Tests. Jonathan Lucroy Jersey . Faf du Plessis will captain the team in his absence while Rilee Rossouw, who has recovered from a shoulder injury sustained in the triangular series in the Caribbean in June, was added to the squad as batting cover.De Villiers participation in the first ODI of the five-match series against Australia, which follows the Ireland game, hinges on a fitness test which he will undergo early next week. Should he fail that test, not only will he be ruled out of the remaining matches in that series, but he will have to undergo surgery which will keep him out action for six to eight weeks and force him to miss South Africas Test tour of Australia.AB has an impingement syndrome, so when he plays certain cricket shots, he gets excruciating pain in the left elbow. Sometimes, it does settle with a conservative approach, but unfortunately, in ABs case it hasnt been so, Mohammad Moosajee, South Africas team manager, said. We are giving him another week, and thereafter a call will be made. He needs to pass the fitness test, the elbow needs up to stand up to the rigours of international cricket. If he does not come through the fitness test, a date for surgery will be set. We dont want to pre-empt that, we want to give him every opportunity to try and recover from that injury. But if he has surgery, he will be out of the Test series.When asked whether de Villiers injury was a result of overuse, Moosajee conceded that the cluttered cricket calendar may have had something to do with the problem. We refer to it as overload, whether thats doing too much and playing different shots, or related to overuse. The fact that there have been some other tournaments like the IPL has added to the load, but we need to understand that having played more than 10 years of international cricket, there are going to be challenges where you will have some sort of injury.As a consequence, Russell Domingo, South Africas coach, who blamed the schedule for player fatigue after South Africa failed to reach the final of the Caribbean triangular series in June, was forced to reiterate the impact of mushrooming T20 leagues on the national side. When I said so after the West Indies tour, I took a beating from a lot of people in public and the media, but I am saying again, theres no doubt guys are playing too many games, too many formats and too many competitions, Domingo said. And at the end of the day, we, as a national side, sit with issues because we are sort of keeping guys fit to go and play in other tournaments, which sometime can be a bit painful for me.De Villiers is not South Africas only major absence. Morne Morkel also missed the New Zealand Tests with a back problem and has not been included in the ODI squad at all, while Hashim Amla will not play the Ireland game and may not be available for the first ODI against Australia as he awaits the birth of this third child. Temba Bavuma, one of South Africas three new caps, will open the batting in Amlas place, as South Africa look to groom him for that role in future.Temba has got really good attributes for an opening batter. He is really good in terms of his technique. He is a guy that can bat for long periods of time, he can hit the bad ball for four, Domingo said. Maybe, at this stage in his one-day career, he is probably not suited coming in at 5 or 6 and trying to hit fours and sixes at the back end. This allows him a nice start in international one-day cricket because he can just pay normally. If he hits a good cricket shot in the first five or six overs, it will go for four, whereas if he hits a good cricket shot in the last ten overs, it might go for one. Its a nice spot for him to try and find a niche in one-day cricket. I am very excited to see what he can offer.Bavuma, allrounder Dwaine Pretorius, and bowler Andile Phelukwayo are all looking to make their debuts against Ireland, with only Phelukwayo being retained for the Australia matches.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Suspended Missouri State quarterback Breck Ruddick is defending himself against animal abuse allegations.His attorney, Adam Woody, released a statement Monday that said it is nothing short of shameful to see the public react to him so viciously.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Tyus Jones Jersey . -- Green Bay is bracing itself for an invasion of Badgers and Tigers.Fans of Wisconsin and LSU are expected to make this a big weekend at Lambeau Field with their Saturday afternoon game. The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports (http://gbpg.net/2c7e0Va ) that this college opener could be bigger than the Packers 2011 season opener after they won the Super Bowl.LSU fans travel well, and the Press-Gazette reports seven charter flights are scheduled to land Thursday. Thats on top of a parade of fans for both teams arriving by RV, car and bus.Tony Onellion, an LSU season ticket holder from Slidell, Louisiana, says some Tigers fans wont be coming due to catastrophic flooding in the state. But he says many others will be eager for a break.They may be ready to get away for the weekend, he said. Lets just go and get the hell away. Its Labor Day weekend afterward.Some Tigers fans are closer to home. Rachel Johnson lives in De Pere, but most of her family is from Louisiana.

Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei dealt a blow to PV Sindhus quest for a second consecutive Superseries title by beating her 21-15, 21-17 in the final of the Hong Kong Open on Sunday. Antonio Garcia Youth Jersey .Both the players started patchily, making a lot of errors. But then Ying, the third seed, took control and raced away to a 6-3 lead. Sindhu levelled the score at 7-7 with a delightful drop shot.Yings deceptive strokes and shot variations again took her ahead at the first changeover. Ying, one of the more unusual players on the circuit with her love of risky shots, won eight points in a row to extend her lead to 15-8. She won the first game in 18 minutes.Sindhu, who had not played any seeded players on her way to the final, struggled to match the variety in Yings game.Sindhu was dominant at the beginning of the second game and led 4-1 before Ying levelled the score with a couple of deceptive smashes. Though the players matched each other well, Sindhu struggled to read Yings flicks and slices in the second game.Yings failure to put away an easy smash saw Sindhu leading 11-10 at the changeover. Some silken touches at the net then left Sindhu confused and saw Ying go 15-12 ahead.Sindhu won a cracking 32-shot rally to bring down the deficit to 16-18. But Ying clinched her second title in Hong Kong soon with a backhand slice. The match lasted 41 minutes. This was the sixth Superseries title win of Yings career.Ying also improved her career head-to-head record against Sindhu to 5-3. Earlier in the year, the player from Chinese Taipei had won the Indonesia Open and made the finals of the Denmark and Malaysia Superseries events.Sindhu is the first Indian woman to make the final in Hong Kong since Saina Nehwal won the tournament in 2010. She had won the China Open last week.Both Sindhu and Ying have qualified for the season-ending World Superseries Finals in Dubai, which will start on December 14. Deatrich Wise Jr. Youth Jersey .

Deatrich Wise Jr. Patriots Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. http://www.patriotsfanaticstores.com/authentic-antonio-garcia-patriots-jersey/ . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No.Moeen Ali hit a brilliant unbeaten 155 as England assumed complete control of the second Investec Test against Sri Lanka on day two in Durham. Having been dropped on 36 early in the morning session, the No 7 took full advantage and piled on the runs as England eventually declared on 498-9 in the afternoon session.From there the bowlers took over and reduced Sri Lanka to 91-8, still 407 behind, at stumps, with Chris Woakes taking 3-9 in seven overs. Moeen Ali celebrates his 150 at Durham Having started the day on 310-6, England had some good fortune as both Ali and Woakes were given early lifelines.First, Ali sent a thick edge to Dimuth Karunaratne at gully off the bowling of Nuwan Pradeep before a regulation edge from Woakes was completely missed by Dinesh Chandimal behind the stumps - Shaminda Eranga the disbelieving bowler.The pair made Sri Lanka pay for their slackness in the field and had put 92 for seventh wicket, Ali going past 50, before Suranga Lakmal had Woakes (39) caught behind.Broad (7) followed - nicking Pradeep through to the keeper - but with Ali going well, England reached lunch at 408-8 and kicked on again after the interval.Having nurdled his way through the nineties, Ali brought up his second Test century with a lofted drive over mid-off for four and continued in much the same vein thereafter. Steven Finn (10) provided steady support from the other end before topping edging a Rangana Herath delivery straight up; the left-arm spinner took the return catch to claiim his 300th Test wicket but was brought back down to earth as No 11 James Anderson promptly reverse swept him for four. Antonio Garcia Womens Jersey. Ali launched Lakmal for six over midwicket to bring up his 150 and the declaration came soon after with England two shy of 500.Sri Lankas openers were left with half an hour to navigate before tea but they were unable to see it through; Anderson bowling Karunaratne behind his legs.Kaushal Silva and Kusal Mendis kept the runs flowing at a decent rate after tea but a fine low catch from Jonny Bairstow broke their 34-run stand after Broad had found Silvas edge. Chris Woakes enjoyed an excellent spell, taking 3-9 Anderson (2-31) then nicked out Chandimal - Alastair Cook taking the catch at first slip - and a superb spell from Woakes left Sri Lanka in the mire at 67-6.The Warwickshire all-rounder hit his areas and had Angelo Mathews and Milinda Siriwardana caught behind with Mendis edging a rising delivery to Anderson at gully in between.Lahiru Thirimanne and Herath dug in for a spell but Broad (3-35) returned to dismiss the latter; Anderson taking another sharp catch at gully and a brilliant one-handed catch from Joe Root - reacting after James Vince was unable to hold on at full stretch - later in the same over did for Eranga, rounding off a near-perfect day for England.Watch day three of the second Investec Test from 10.30am, Sunday, Sky Sports 2.

Substitute Marnick Vermijl ensured a losing start to the new Dean Holdsworth era at Bolton with an 86th minute winner to complete a 2-1 Sky Bet Championship derby win for Preston. Evan Longoria Rays Jersey . The Wanderers new chief executive, in control after the Sports Shield consortium finally took control from Eddie Davies in midweek, saw Liam Trotter put the Trotters ahead midway through the first half.But after the break Jordan Hugills headed equaliser and Vermijl, nine minutes after joining the action, completed a second-half comeback for Simon Graysons side. Certainly, since the drabbest of goalless draws at Deepdale last October, the fortunes of the Lancashire neighbours have taken contrasting routes. Wanderers have won only three Championship games since then while North Ends rise up the table has been powered by 10 victories.A run of three games without victory prior to this match had probably done for Prestons play-off chances but they kicked off 23 points better off than rivals heading for League One.Preston were almost in front after just 15 seconds with a Calum Woods effort from Adam Reachs cross. Instead the strikers effort grazed the top of Paul Rachubkas crossbar. Marnick Vermijl grabbed the winner at the Macron And that let-off was magnified when Bolton took the lead with Trotters 22nd minute goal. Gary Madine had a penalty appeal turned down and Zach Clough missed a great chance with a close range header minutes earlier.But when Mark Davies squared the ball to Trotter the ex-Millwall midfielder side-footed the opening goal beyond Anders Lindegaard.Despite seeing their side fall behind, Preston fans joined in 33rd-minute tribute to the 33 fans killed in the Burnden Park disaster 70 years earlier, many waving bowler hats as part of the occasion.It took until the 57th minute for North End to get back on level terms. Rachubka got a hand to unmarked Hugills effort but could not keep the ball out in front of 4,400 North End supportersHugills goal from Reachs assist was the first by a North End player against the Trotters since Lee Cartwright 24 years earlier.Bottom of the table Bolton responded well as Anders Lindegaard saved from Davies and Clough while Davies was convinced he should have had a penalty for a foul by Daniel Johnson.Referee Paul Tierney remained unmoved and Boltons season long defensive frailties re-surfaced as Vermeil, possibly with Eoin Doyle applying a final touch, poked the ball beyond Rachubka for the winner.

Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. BALTIMORE -- John Harbaugh had been waiting the entire season for the Baltimore Ravens to put it all together in one memorable, outstanding performance.His patience was rewarded Sunday.The Ravens combined a record-setting passing day by Joe Flacco with a rugged defensive effort in a 38-6 rout of the Miami Dolphins.It was just a heck of a team victory, Harbaugh said. Its something thats been in our minds, our vision of how we played today as a team. Its what were working for, and its nice to see it happen.Flacco threw for 381 yards and four touchdowns, and the Ravens (7-5) made it apparent early that Miamis six-game winning streak would not make it to seven.Baltimore built a 24-0 halftime lead behind the leagues second-ranked defense and Flacco, who went 27 for 34 for 258 yards and three scores.That was enough to provide the Ravens with their fourth win in five games and at least a share of first place in the AFC North.Flacco finished with a franchise-record 36 completions in 47 attempts, by far his most impressive outing in an uneven season. He entered with 11 TD passes and 10 interceptions.It feels good to throw four touchdown passes, Flacco said, but at the end of the day, what does it really matter? As long as we win, thats what matters.Miami (7-5) didnt score until Ryan Tannehill threw a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter following a fumble recovery that started the drive at the Baltimore 8.That made it 24-6, and Flacco answered with a 53-yard touchdown pass to Breshad Perriman with 12:49 left.Two of Flaccos TD passes went to tight end Dennis Pitta, whos enjoying a fine season in his return from a second hip surgery. Pitta had nine catches for 90 yards and leads Baltimore with 61 receptions, but he hadnt reached the end zone since December 2013.Tannehill went 29 for 40 for 226 yards and three interceptions. He was picked off only once during Miamis six-game streak.The Ravens scored a touchdown on their first possession for the second week in a row, moving 75 yards before Flacco connected with Terrance West for a 3-yard score.Unlike last week, when Baltimore managed just one TD in a win over Cincinnati, the Ravens immediately built on their early advantage. Following a missed field goal by the Dolphins, Flacco deftly took Baltimore downfield before throwing a 13-yard touchdown pass to Pitta. Kevin Kiermaier Rays Jersey. he drive was extended by Kenneth Dixons 10-yard run on a fourth-and-1.Flacco capped an 18-play drive in the second quarter with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Pitta. The methodical march took up 8 minutes, 57 seconds.QUOTEABLEDolphins: This was not one of our best performances, coach Adam Gase said. You cant waste opportunities early in the game, especially on offense. We had nothing that really jump-started us. We just couldnt make any plays.Ravens: I thought Joe just played phenomenally well, Harbaugh said. Joe and the offensive line got the game balls in the locker room. I thought (Flaccos) vision was phenomenal. He moved around and made plays on the run, guys made catch-and-run plays. It looked like we wanted it to look.NOWHERE TO RUNDolphins: Miami was limited to 62 yards rushing, its lowest output since gaining 51 in a loss to Tennessee on Oct. 9 -- its last loss. Jay Ajayi was held to 61 yards on 12 carries.Ravens: The Ravens split the handoffs. Dixon gained 56 yards on six attempts and West had 10 carries for 50 yards, including a 9-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.STILL PERFECTRavens kicker Justin Tucker connected on a 55-yard field goal to end the first half. Hes 28 for 28 this season, with eight FGs of at least 50 yards. Hes also hit 35 in a row over two seasons.Gase used a timeout an instant before Tucker banged his field goal try through the uprights. After the timeout, Tucker duplicated the feat.INJURY UPDATEDolphins: LB Kiko Alonso (hand) missed part of the first half. ... CB Tony Lippett was evaluated for a concussion and cleared in second quarter.Ravens: CB Tavon Young (shoulder) left in the second quarter but returned after halftime.UP NEXTDolphins: Miami hosts Arizona next Sunday. The Dolphins have won three straight in the series after losing the first eight.Ravens: A Monday night game in New England looms for the Ravens, 1-7 against the Patriots in the regular season.

Following their unexpected Champions League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid, we examine Barcelona’s slump. Latrell Sprewell Warriors Jersey . Is an over-reliance on that famous forward line to blame? Adam Bate reports from the Vicente Calderon... Sergio Busquets lingered to clap the away fans in the top tier. Andres Iniesta and Jordi Alba joined him. But most of their team-mates shuffled down the tunnel. Barcelona, the defending European champions, had been vanquished by Atletico Madrid.It will have been a huge blow. For while Barcelona remain favourites to complete a domestic double, such are the expectations placed on this group of players that the season is likely to be laced with disappointment whatever happens now. Atletico eliminate Barcelona Antoine Griezmann scored twice to knock the reigning champions out of Europe. Thats the nature of it when Lionel Messi is in your side. When you have Neymar, a man whod joined him on the Ballon dOr shortlist in January. Luis Suarez didnt receive that honour but hes more than made up for it with his scoring feats this season.And yet, for all the brilliance of that formidable forward line, its Luis Enriques reliance on it thats played a part in his sides downfall. Maybe that was in the Barca coachs mind when he insisted on taking 100 per cent of the responsibility for the defeat afterwards. Luis Enrique took full responsibility for Barcelonas Champions League defeat Its funny how defeat can shift the tone. While once the goalscoring heroics of that celebrated front three were a source of wonder, the statistics now feel like a note of caution. A warning that was left unheeded.Messi, Suarez and Neymar have scored 44 of Barcelonas 53 Champions League goals since the start of last season. Thats 83 per cent. Individually spectacular but when the dip came it came collectively and Barca have suffered as a result. After a 20-game sequence in which they won 19 - the other was the drawn second leg of a Copa del Rey tie in which they were already 7-0 up - theyve now won only once in their last five. Even that was against a 10-man Atletico, a game they were losing prior to the red card. What the papers said How the Spanish press reacted to Barcas defeat Neymar looks like a man who has played too much football - no wonder he is set to skip the Copa America - and Messis goal drought has now passed the seven-hour mark. The Argentine is coming deeper and deeper in search of the ball and it has left Suarez isolated. Lionel Messi stands dejected after Atleticos second goal of the night Its now tempting to conclude that overplaying them all was folly. Barca have endured 27 games in 106 days. Thats a match every fourth day since a winter break that was barely worthy of the name given the clubs trip to Japan to contest the Club World Cup.Luis Enrique was unwilling to use that as an excuse but hell have noted too the recent international break that took all three of his forwards to South America to play a further five matches of football between them. The team hasnt looked the same since their return. Barcelona have played 12 more games than any other La Liga rival, with a front three that have not rotated, and all of a sudden they have hit a bit of a wall. Guillem Balague Barcelona have played 12 more games than any other La Liga rival, with a front three that have not rotated, and all of a sudden they have hit a bit of a wall, said Sky Sports Spanish correspondent Guillem Balague ahead of the game.The front three find themselves now having played far too many minutes when that extra gear is needed. Neymar, you can see it in his face, is struggling to find the extra gear. Lionel Messi has found in the past few weeks that physically, perhaps, he is not at his sharpest. Why are Barca struggling? A look at their recent defeat to Real Sociedad That certainly appeared to be the case on Wednesday night as Messi was content to probe and pass away without ever looking likely to provide the moment of incision himself.He has been averaging more than six dribbles per game in the Champions League over the past two seasons, but managed only three against Atletico and none of them in positions where he could hurt his opponent. Europes toughest team? Atletico Madrid were too strong for Barcelona. Maybe theyre too strong for everyone… Maybe Messi was hoping to ride this spring-time lull without too much damage being done. But when the going got tough, and thats precisely what it is against Atletico, the solutions could not be found. More worryingly, Barca didnt even come up with too many ideas.Its a natural step in the life of a team when you have a front three that wins every game for you, added Balague. You stop working on things that made you so good when that front three was not performing, or when you needed to find collective answers to problems. Of course, when it gets to this stage of a season, teams hardly train. Its all about recuperation and there is less and less work on organised attack. What that means is that the team depends more and more on the front three as the season progresses.What they have discovered is that even the best individuals can be stopped. It will have come as shock. This is only the second time in nine years that Barcelona find themselves dumped out of the Champions League at this stage. Atletico Madrid ended a run of seven consecutive defeats to Barcelona Even on the night, a claustrophobic affair in a boisterous Calderon, the elimination might still have felt abrupt. After all, Atletico had taken the lead in all three of their previous encounters this season and each time Barca had turned it around for 2-1 victories.But the omen was merely ominous. The identity of the scorers of those six goals? Three by Suarez, two by Messi and the other by Neymar. The lesson? Barca may still have the better players but somewhere along the way they forgot about the need to be the better team too.

Alex Hales, Englands opening batsman, has apologised for his teams slow over-rate during the third Test against Pakistan, by giving a disgruntled fan a partial refund on his match ticket.Alexis Fuller, who attended the third days play at Edgbaston, contacted several players on Twitter to ask for a 10% refund, after it had been pointed out by Michael Vaughan, the former England captain, that only 81 of the days prescribed 90 overs had been bowled.I want 10% of my money back, Fuller wrrote.

DENVER -- Runs at hitter-friendly Coors Field arent normally cause for celebration. Adam Eaton White Sox Jersey . The Miami Marlins beg to differ. After going eight days without crossing the plate, the Marlins scored twice in the first inning Monday night. It led to high-fives and cheering in the dugout. More important, it led to a victory. Tom Koehler tossed seven strong innings, Ed Lucas homered and the Miami Marlins scored for the first time in four games in a 3-1 win over the Colorado Rockies. "You know its going to happen eventually," Lucas said. "You hope. It was important for us to do it early and get that monkey off our back." Giancarlo Stanton reached base three times and Steve Cishek notched his 18th save for Miami, which snapped a four-game losing streak. Troy Tulowitzki hit his 17th home run and D.J. LeMahieu had three hits for the Rockies, who are 2-2 in a key 10-game homestand. The Marlins scoring drought reached a franchise-record 37 innings after a three-game sweep at Milwaukee over the weekend. They had not scored since Derek Dietrichs two-run homer in the fourth inning of a loss to Washington on July 14. They failed to score the last six innings of that game before being shut out in three straight games for the second time in franchise history. The Marlins ended their frustration right away against Colorado. Lucas reached on a one-out single in the first and scored on Stantons double to right. Stanton scored on a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0. "All the guys were pretty excited about us scoring a run there in the first. I saw a couple of fist pumps and I know the guys were having fun with it," manager Mike Redmond said. "We knew it was going to come. As frustrating as the Milwaukee series was, these guys have done a good job of turning the page." Lucas said the players have stayed positive despite the lack of runs, but finally breaking through helped relax the team. "You could sense the relief in the dugout. A lot of chatter, a lot of chirping," he said. "A lot more energy in the dugout." Lucas gave Miami a 3-0 lead when he crushed Drew Pomeranzs 89 mph fastball down the left-field line to lead off the third. It was another poor outing for Pomeranz (0-4), the centerpiece of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade with Cleveland two years ago. Pomeranz began this season in Triple-A before being called up June 28. He had an 8.76 ERA in three starts and was sent to Double-A Tulsa. He was recalled Monday, but struggled against the Marlins, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks in 4 1-3 innings. "I think maybe Im just over-thinking a little bit, trying to be too fine with things instead of just attacking guys," Pomeranz said. The Rockies offence didnt help. Colorado has scored one run or less eight times in July. "We got some hits, but we couldnt string anything together," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "You score one run, youre not going to win many games." Koehler (2-5) looked sharp in his first start since July 2. His only blemish was Tulowitzkis homer to lead off the fourth that made it 3-1. Michael Cuddyer followed with a double, but Koehler struck out Todd Helton and retired Wilin Rosario and Nolan Arenado to strand Cuddyer at third. "I wasnt as upset with the home run as I was with the double," Koehler said. "Tulos a great hitter. You get 3-0 and hes looking for one thing and put a charge into it. I was a little disappointed I didnt come back and get right back in the zone. It took me an extra hitter, but the strikeout to Helton was definitely was a big lift." Koehler allowed one run on eight hits, struck out seven and didnt walk a batter in seven innings. It was the fourth time in 11 starts he has pitched at least seven innings. "He had great command. He was pounding his fastball in and out and threw some great breaking balls," Redmond said. "They had some hits off him they hit hard, but he was in complete control. It was a great effort by him and on quite a few days of rest." NOTES: The Rockies optioned INF Josh Rutledge to Triple A to make room for Pomeranz on the roster. ... After the game, Miami GM Larry Beinfest said the team optioned Dietrich and outfielder Marcell Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville. Beinfest said the team will select the contracts of outfielders Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick from Jacksonville on Tuesday.

NEWARK, N. Josh Jones Womens Jersey .J. -- With a four game road trip looming, the New Jersey Devils knew how important two back-to-back, home-and-home sets would be. Kyle Quincey said the teams goal was to win all four games.New Jersey went out and did just that.Nick Lappin and Kyle Palmieri scored in the second period to lead the Devils to a 4-2 victory over the Sabres on Saturday night, beating Buffalo for the second straight night. Earlier in the week, New Jersey beat Carolina twice in three nights.When you look at the wins, its a combination of very good effort by the players, making smart decisions, making right decisions, making good plays, playing with passion, playing with purpose and having some mental toughness, Devils coach John Hynes said. I think when you look at this past week weve had those things more times than not, and thats why weve been able to find a way to win.Quincey and John Moore also scored for the Devils, and Cory Schneider stopped 21 shots. Taylor Hall, Adam Henrique and Damon Severson had two assists each.Marcus Foligno and Matt Moulson scored for the Sabres, who have lost four straight. Robin Lehner finished with 23 saves.Lappin gave the Devils a 2-1 lead at 6:11 of the second as he took a pass from Hall on a 2-on-1 and fired a shot past Lehner for his second career goal.Hes one of the most skilled players in the league so when I see him get the puck there I have a pretty good feeling its going to end up on my stick if hes passing it, Lappin said. I was just waiting for it and he made a great play and I was able to get it in.Palmieri made it 3-1 from the right circle with 8:47 left in the second for his third of the season. The goal withstood a video review after the Sabres challenged for an offside call.Moores shot off a pass from Henrique on a 2-on-1 trickled by Lehner 6 1/2 minutes into the third to give the Devils a three-goal cushion.The goal came during 4-on-4 play. Buffalos Evander Kane was sent to the penalty box for hooking Vernon Fiddler at 5:32. However, the Devils power play was short-lived as Severson was whistled for cross-checking the Sabres Johan Larsson 42 seconds later.Moulson capped the scoring at 9:43 of the third period with William Carrier getting his first NHL point on the play.Quincey scored his first goal with New Jersey for a 1-0 lead 4:01 into the game as his slap shot from right in front of the blue line found the back of the net.The Sabres tied it 3:41 into the second period as Brian Gionta picked off a pass by Jacob Josefson and found Folingo, who had a clear path to the goal.We had that push back, we were able to tie it up and when they are able to stop the momentum and create one of their own, Brian Gionta said. Its tough.Game notes The Devils went 0 for 4 on power play, extending their streak to 20 straight man-advantage situations without a goal. ...

Andy Bichel Blond and perpetually grinning, as if amused for the opportunity in an era of rare riches, Bichel was the archetypal understudy - a distant third seamer behind Glenn McGrath and Jason Gillespie in the early years, before being usurped by the even blonder Brett Lee. Carlos Tevez Jersey .Bichel carried drinks in as many Tests as he played (19) - it generally required a hamstring twinge here or the omission of a spinner there to tip the balance in his favour.He bowled with the muscular optimism of a born trier - charging in, battering the deck with understated skill, and extracting just enough movement from a nuisance length.He won 13 of his 19 Tests - no great surprise in a team powered by a cabal of greats. But no analysis of Bichels value can be complete without Port Elizabeth, and his grandstanding role in one of the great statement victories of the era. Ahead of their group-stage clash at the 2003 World Cup, England had not beaten Australia in 14 completed ODIs. Bichel took it upon himself to beat them twice more.With the ball he routed them with figures of 7 for 20. Then, when Andrew Caddick reduced Australia to 135 for 8 (chasing 206), he joined Michael Bevan and took command of the tempo of the chase, all but sealing it in the penultimate over with a crushing swing across the line.Within 12 months Bichels international days were over. As Steve Waugh noted in his autobiography, Bichels good-humoured acceptance of his second-tier status was vital in cultivating the mateship that helped keep Australia on top. He and fellow seamer Michael Kasprowicz, Waugh wrote, would take a demotion in the right spirit… They never did whinge or drop their bundle.In the Aussie vernacular, accolades rarely come higher.Tim Bresnan Two performances, a decade apart, offer an alpha-and-omega appraisal of Bresnan - a player whose dour utterances and undemonstrative demeanour mean that being underestimated is part and parcel of his game.The first came at Headingley in July 2006, at the end of a maiden ODI series against Sri Lanka that suggested he was horribly out of his depth: his final contribution was two overs for 29, as England were whitewashed. The second came at Lords in September, in Yorkshires must-win County Championship decider against Middlesex. Nearly three years since the last of Bresnans 23 Tests and yet here he was bossing a first-class contest… with his second string, no less.Always perfectly capable of holding up an end, Bresnans sublime batting (142 not out and 55) offered overdue proof of his incredible talent. After all, for years hed been bowling to such exalted standards as well, but no one seemed to have noticed.And yet, in his pomp, from the spring of 2010 to the summer of 2012, Bresnan played critical roles in Englands World T20 triumph, their first Ashes victory in Australia for 24 years, and their rise in Tests to No. 1.The best came at the zenith of the Andy Flower-Andrew Strauss era. In Melbourne in December 2010, he was subbed into the starting line-up at the expense of Steven Finn, and thumped down heavy ball after heavy ball - you could almost see the pitch rising up to meet its vast gravitational pull - to prise out six wickets; two in the first innings as Australia crumbled to 98 on Boxing Day, and three in the space of four overs on the penultimate evening, when Shane Watson, Ricky Ponting and Mike Hussey all succumbed to a spell of Flintoff-esque reverse swing.Stuart Clark It should not have been possible. When Glenn McGrath withdrew from Australias tour of South Africa in the spring of 2006, he took with him 542 wickets from 119 Test appearances, stretched across a stellar career.Merely bridging such a gap should have been remarkable, let alone hitting upon a like-for-like replacement. But for 23 Tests Clark was the methadone to McGraths metronome, as Australia weaned themselves off a decade-long addiction to the generations most enduring strike bowler.His maiden Test series was nothing short of a revelation. South Africa had spent most of the previous decade under the yoke of McGrath and Warne, and in the formers absence, there must have been an assumption of weakness in Australias ranks.Not a bit of it. On his Test debut, Clark sauntered onto centre stage with match figures of 9 for 89, and had made it 20 wickets by the time a whitewash was wrapped up. He specialised in quality - 16 of those wickets were top-order batsmen, including Jacques Kallis four times. Clark continued that trait into the following winters Ashes, not only keeping his place as McGrath slotted back in, but outbowling the senior man by 26 wickets to 21, the most by any bowler on either side.His next experience of Ashes cricket wasnt as fulfilling. The new generation of Peter Siddle, Ben Hilfenhaus and Mitchell Johnson were given first dibs in the 2009 series, but Clark nevertheless showed what they had been missing when called up for the fourth Test, at Headingley. His first-day figures of 3 for 18 helped rout England for 102 and set up a series-squaring win, but he never played again after defeat at The Oval two weeks later.Patrick Patterson A terrifyingly muscular entity, with a stiff-limbed, stud-slamming action like a windmill being ripped off its axis in a hurricane, Patterson was the instigator of crickets equivalent of the shower scene in Psycho. A television blackout for Englands tour of the Caribbean in 1985-86 meant witnesses of the violence he delivered on his Test debut in Kingston are few - a few thousand baying fans in the stands, and thats about it.Graham Gooch, one of Englands finest players of pace, admitted this was the only match in which he had been truly scared. The fact that Patterson had sprung from nowhere made his impact more chilling. Joel Garner and Michael Holding were winding towards retirement and Curtly Ambrose had yet to make his bow. Nevertheless Jeff Dujon is unequivocal in his assessment that Patterson was the fastest ever to hit his gloves.He came with a mean streak too. Dujon tells a tale from Melbourne: on tour in 1988-89, Dujon followed, at a safe distance, a livid Patterson as he stalked his way to the home dressing room after being given some lip at the crease. He burst through the door, paused to scan the room, then jabbed his finger in a slow and deliberate targeting. You. You. You. And you. I am going to KILL you.Within two sessions, Australia had crumbled to 114 all out, a denouement that echoed Pattersons career: fast, furious and brief - 93 wickets in 28 Tests, with never a series defeat. And the utter anonymity of his post-cricket life merely adds to the legend. No one seems entirely sure what has become of him, lost back to the streets from whence he came. Simon Jones The shooting star of the 2005 Ashes, Jones burned memories for the ages onto the retinas of all who saw him. His 18-Test career spanned a little over three years, but his legacy has been distilled into six extraordinary weeks.From the moment he made his Test debut against India at Lords in 2002, Jones methods brought a sense of expectation. His raw speed caught the eye - in particular its generation, from an ambling run and a ferocious snap of the shoulders - and there was an eagerness to find him a role, just to see what could happen.But on the opening day of the 2002-03 Ashes came the setback that would define the parameters of his international career. He ruptured his knee ligaments and was out of the series before it had even developed its narrative.Jones required little extra motivation to do what he loved best - bowling with speed, fury and a burgeoning level of skill. He was, by his own admission, an all or nothing character - one who accidentally ended up sinking seven pints with Craig White on the eve of his debut - and had it not been Australia in his sights in 2005, he would doubtless have bounded in with equal zest and intent. The fact that it was, and that he located his very, very best for it, merely adds to his legend.If one delivery sums up Jones career, it is the reverse-swinging Exocet to pluck out Michael Clarkes off stump at Old Trafford - That is very good! as Mark Nicholas memorably intoned. By this stage Jones was a rattling cabinet of ibuprofen and cortisone injections. His ankle eventually collapsed after Trent Bridge and his knee - on borrowed time since the Gabba - called in its debts soon afterwards. It was all too brief. All too brilliant. Diego Maradona Argentina Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Angel Di Maria Argentina Jersey .
