    • San Jose Sharks forward John Scott is suspended two games for leaving the players bench on a legal line change to start an altercation during the Sharks 4-1 Sunday night victory over the Anaheim Ducks. Dan Driessen Jersey . Scott was given a game misconduct on the play. He will lose $17,073 in salary due to the suspension. Shortly before play was blown dead on an icing call at 13:56 of the third period, Scott left the Sharks bench on a legal line change and proceeded to fight with Ducks winger Tim Jackman. The game already had numerous fights, including a prior first period scrap between Scott and Jackman. Eight players were assessed fighting penalties in the game. He was assessed a two-minute penalty for leaving the bench, two minutes for instigating and five minutes for fighting in addition to the game misconduct. However, since Scott left the bench on a legal line change, the incident was not subject to Rule 74 of the NHL Rule Book which carries an automatic 10-game suspension. Since Scott was penalized under Rule 70.2 instead, the incident is subject to review by the Department of Player Safety. Rule 70.2 states that a player who has entered the game on a legal line change or legally from the penalty bench (penalty time has expired) who starts an altercation maybe subject to discipline in accordance with Rule 28. Rule 28 states that actions on the ice may be subject to supplemental discipline from the League. Scott was suspended seven games for an illegal check to the head of Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson in October 2013. Brian OGrady Jersey .

    • MACAU, Macau -- Manny Pacquiao defeated Brandon Rios by unanimous decision on Sunday to take the WBO international welterweight title in a victory the Philippine lawmaker dedicated to the victims and survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, that devastated his home country this month. Tyler Lyons Yankees Jersey . Returning to the ring after almost a years absence, Pacquiao wore Rios down with his trademark combination punching and won 120-108, 119-109 and 118-110 on the scorecards at The Venetian casino in Macau. It was an emotional victory for Pacquiao as the Philippines is still struggling to recover from the devastating typhoon that killed thousands of his countrymen. "This is not about my comeback," Pacquiao said in the ring. "My victory is a symbol of my peoples comeback from a natural disaster and a national tragedy." Pacquiao got the better of the opening two rounds, sending Rios to the canvas in the opening frame, although the referee contentiously ruled it as a slip rather than a knockdown. The American asserted himself in the third, landing some crisp blows that raised hopes of a genuine contest before Pacquiao -- spurred on by a capacity crowd at the 13,000-seat Cotai Arena including many Filipino fans -- dominated the remainder of the contest. Rios was game, continually walking forward to challenge Pacquiao but was unable to land any telling blows. After seven rounds, Rios was getting attention to cuts under both eyebrows, and with the scores going against him, needed something special. Cautioned by the memory of his previous fight when he walked into a savage Juan Manuel Marquez punch that knocked him out, Pacquiao was on guard throughout the closing rounds but a tiring Rios offered little threat over the final four rounds. "Recovering from the knockout and giving a good show was what I wanted to prove to myself and everyone," Pacquiao said. Rios had prepared for the bout with the quickest sparring partners his camp could find, but even that could not prepare him for the fusillade of Pacquiao punches from all angles. "What got me was just the speed and his awkwardness," Rios said. "He never hurt me at all, and I never got stunned at all, but the quickness just caught me off guard." Pacquiao will now eye a potential rematch against Marquez, if the much-desired fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesnt eventuate. Rios, who has now lost his past two bouts after having previously being undefeated, had come up two weight classes in three fights but said he would now stay at welterweight and perhaps even move up to super welterweight. Ben Heller Jersey . The Rangers announced after Thursdays 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees that they would purchase Williams contract from Triple-A Round Rock. The 32-year-old Williams was released by Houston earlier this month after going 1-4 with a 6. Ryan Dull Jersey .

    • New York, NY (SportsNetwork. Fake Vans For Sale .com) - Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Hornets keep on rolling, while the hapless New York Knicks continue to lose. Walkers 28 points propelled the Hornets to their season-high fifth straight win, a 110-82 dismantling of the Knicks that extended New Yorks franchise- record skid to 15 games. Walker needed just 28 minutes to record his game-best total, and the New York City native has helped offset an injury to Al Jefferson by averaging 30.2 points during the win streak. Bismack Biyombo delivered season highs of 14 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which received 15 points from P.J. Hairston and 14 from Brian Roberts in the rout. We have been moving the basketball, playing good defense, and we have great communication out there, said Walker. Everyone is in the right spot and just making plays. For the Knicks, whose last eight defeats have come by double digits, this may have been rock-bottom in a season of low points. They trailed by as many as 45 in the second half before reducing the deficit as the Hornets pulled their starters in the fourth quarter. It was a tough afternoon, for sure, Knicks head coach Derek Fisher said. We all have to continue to learn that its not easy to win in this league. Were obviously finding that out the hard way. Quincy Acy was one bright spot for New York, finishing with 18 points on 6- of-9 shooting. Tim Hardaway Jr. and Shane Larkin had 15 and 12 points, respectively. Charlotte held just a 21-18 lead after one quarter and a 30-27 edge early in the second, then proceeded to paste the Knicks over the remainder of the first half. The Hornets outscored New York by a whopping 32-4 margin over the final 8:35 of the period to enter the break owning a commanding 62-31 advantage. The Hornets began to pull away behind a 13-2 run, which New Yorks Langston Galloway temporarily stopped with a jumper with 4:31 to go in the quarter to bring the Knicks within 43-31. New York didnt score again for the rest of the first half, with Charlotte closing the frame out on a 19-0 tear. Walker did most of the damage, dropping in 10 points during the surge to finish with 20 for the initial two quarters. The Knicks offensive ineptitude extended beyond the stoppage, as they went 5- of-21 from the floor during a 13-point third quarter in which the Hornets continued to pour it on. Biyombo finished off a 9-0 sequence with an alley-oop dunk to put Charlotte up by 40, 73-33, near the midway mark of the third. It was a 45-point spread entering the fourth when two Jason Maxiell free throws made the score 89-44. With the Hornets fielding their second and third-team units, New York ended the game on a 16-7 run to make the final outcome slightly more respectable. Game Notes Charlotte is 13-6 this season when Walker scores 18 points or more and 2-18 when he hasnt hit that mark ... The Hornets are on their first four-game road winning streak since Jan. 18-28, 2011 ... Hairston (illness) and forward Cody Zeller (strained right shoulder) both returned to action for Charlotte after missing Thursdays win at Toronto ... The Knicks were whistled for 24 fouls, which led to a 25-of-33 performance at the foul line for the Hornets. Fake Vans Website .

Doubles are set for Saturday with reverse singles on Sunday to decide which team reaches the quarterfinals. Fake Vans From China .com) - On the bright side, either the Minnesota Wild or Buffalo Sabres will end their losing streak on Thursday night.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - If you didnt think Derek Jeter lived a charmed life before, the way he ended his magnificent career may have changed your mind. One of Major League Baseballs biggest storylines this past year was the Jeter farewell tour. Teams fell over themselves in giving away gifts to the man who, essentially had been the face of baseball since the day he stepped onto the field in 1996. Jeter may never have won an MVP or had been the best player in the game at any point in his career, but he was pretty freaking good and nobody won more than the Yankees all-time hits leader. Plus, he is one heck of a role model. Parents never had to be ashamed to buy their kids a Derek Jeter jersey. That was probably why there was such an outpouring of affection for him everytime he visited an opposing ballpark for the final time. Heck, even the fans in Fenway Park gave him a touching tribute after he left the field for the last time on the final day of the regular season. But, it was the way his Yankee Stadium career ended that will be remembered for years to come. Jeter gave the fans something that even the hackiest of scriptwriters could not have punched up, as he delivered a game-winning walkoff hit to send the Yankees to a victory. It was a fitting ending for a player who has been synonymous with winning above everything else over his remarkable 20-year career. Here are some of the other top stories of the past year, in no particular order: INTERESTING FEW MONTHS FOR JON LESTER Left-hander Jon Lester was in the midst of another spectacular year with Boston, but rejected a multi-year, lucrative extension from the Red Sox, so they made him available during the season. Lester was ultimately dealt at the non-waiver trade deadline to the Oakland Athletics for Cuban slugger Yoenis Cespedes. Although, the As faltered down the stretch, it was certainly no fault of Lesters, as he was a key reason why the Athletics reached the American League Wild Card Game. Lester then hit the free agent market and almost returned to Boston before finally settling on a 6-year ,$155 million from the Chicago Cubs and reunion with former general manager Theo Epstein. With all due respect to Max Scherzer, Lester was the best pitcher on the market this offseason. Hes a bulldog and he wins in October. If you are a team that is on the cusp of getting ready to compete, like the Cubs, there is no better pitcher to have at the top of your rotation than Lester. MADISON BUMGARNER BECOMES ELITE Speaking of front of the line starters, one pitcher certainly jumped into that category this October, as Madison Bumgarner almost single-handedly led the San Francisco Giants to their World Series title in five years. Bumgarner went seven innings to win Game 1 against the Kansas City Royals, then pitched a four- hit shutout in Game 5. But what he did in Game 7, though, is something people will be talking about for years. On just two-days rest and his team leading, 3-2, Bumgarner entered the game in the fifth inning and tossed five more scoreless innings to lower his overall World Series ERA to an amazing 0.25, while earning the save in the decisive seventh game. Twenty-one innings in this World Series and he allowed just one run. You want more numbers? Bumgarner pitched 52 2/3 innings this postseason, which was the most ever in a single playoffs, eclipsing Arizonas Curt Schilling (48 1/3 in 2001). He gave up just six earned runs in the postseason and his 1.03 is the third best in a single playoff run. His 0.43 ERA against the Royals was also the lowest in a single World Series among pitchers with at least 15 innings since Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax compiled a 0.38 ERA for the 1965 Dodgers. We needed a pitcher to take over for the retiring Josh Beckett as the best postseason pitcher of this generation, Bumgarner may have stepped right into those shoes. ROYALS RETURN TO PROMINENCE Although their season ended in a Game 7 loss, there was no better story this postseason than the Kansas City Royals, who returned to not only the World Series, but to the playoffs for the first time since 1985. After a thrilling wild card game win over Oakland, the Royals relied on their amazing bullpen and swept their way past both the Los Angeles Angels and Baltimore Orioles to get back to the Fall Classic for the first time in 29 years. No team signified small ball more in the regular season than Kansas City, which won 89 games this season thanks in large part to its ability to play defense and manufacture runs. The Royals also led the AL with 153 stolen bases, but their 95 home runs were the fewest in baseball. The Royals may have found their power stroke in the postseason, but it was the tremendous bullpen triumvirate of Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland that helped them get as far as it went. The group aided an overmatched Kansas City rotation that became just the second team during the wild card era to win the ALCS without a single starter completing six innings in the process. And think about this. Teams are now copying the Royals model as they get their teams ready for the 2015 season. The Royals. Teams want to be the Royals. GIANCARLO STANTON BREAKS HIS FACE, THEN THE BANK What an interesting couple of months for Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton was in the midst of the best year of hiis young career, but it all came to a screeching halt on Sept. Fake Vans. 11 when he was hit in the face by a pitch from Milwaukee Brewers starter Mike Fiers. The young star was carted off the field and suffered facial lacerations requiring stitches, multiple facial fractures and dental damage. But, then just over two months later he signed one of the more lucrative deals in the history of sports, signing a 13-year, $325 million extension to stay with the Marlins. Not a bad way to get over having your face smashed. CLAYTON KERSHAW JOINS SELECT COMPANY The postseason may have been all about Bumgarner, but no pitcher dominated the regular season more than Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw not only won the NLs Cy Young Award, but also joined became the first pitcher to win an NL MVP since Bob Gibson back in 1968. He was simply magnificent this season, as he led the majors with a 21-3 record, an .875 winning percentage, a 1.77 ERA and an 0.86 WHIP. He was also second in the NL with 239 strikeouts, three behind Johnny Cueto of the Reds and Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals, in 27 starts. It was the fifth consecutive season that Kershaw tallied 200 or more strikeouts. He also allowed a .197 batting average to right-handed hitters and just .193 to left-handed hitters. Of course, Kershaws season ended in disappointment, as he once again stumbled in the playoffs, losing both of his starts, while pitching to a 7.28 ERA. He is now just 1-5 all-time in the playoffs with a 5.12 ERA. SELIG SUCCESSOR Major League Baseball will have a new commissioner come January. And to nobodys surprise its exactly the guy the outgoing commissioner wanted. But, it wasnt exactly the rubber-stamped approval Bud Selig may have hoped for. In the end, though, he got his man in MLB chief operating officer Rob Manfred. Manfred, who has served as a league executive since 1998, will officially replace the retiring Selig and become the 10th commissioner in MLB history in January. Manfed was elected unanimously on the third vote, which was kind of telling considering he was essentially handpicked by Selig to be his successor. Not to mention the fact that MLB owners raked in money hand over fist under Seligs watch. Selig may have done a lot wrong in his time as commissioner. Who can forget the tied All-Star Game in 2002. And, of course, the steroid era will be a permanent stain on his resume and probably ultimately be his legacy. Nobody can argue, though, that he is handing the reins over the Manfred at a time when revenues are up in a major way across the board. Financially, the game is in the best place it ever has been. Owners are making money. Players are making money. Everyone is happy, except for maybe the fans. JOE MADDON BOLTS RAYS There may not have been a bigger offseason move than Joe Maddon leaving the Tampa Bay Rays to become the new manager of the Chicago Cubs. Maddon stunned the baseball world, as after nine years with Tampa Bay, he chose to exercise an opt-out clause in his contract, ending the most successful era in the teams history. Most assumed he would eventually join former Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, who earlier this offseason left Tampa to become the baseball czar for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was actually Friedmans departure that triggered Maddons opt-out. Regardless, it was a moot point because Friedman was happy with Don Mattingly and Maddon wanted the challenge of ending the Chicago Cubs historic World Series championship drought. SAN DIEGO PADRES BECOME A FACTOR No team has been more active this offseason than the San Diego Padres, who completely revamped not only their entire outfield, but the overall perception of their organization. San Diego drastically upgraded the worst lineup in baseball, as it acquired outfielders, Matt Kemp, Wil Myers and Justin Upton, along with catcher Derek Norris and third baseman Will Middlebrooks, while re-signing righty Josh Johnson and adding flamethrower Brandon Morrow. Have these moves made San Diego the team to beat now in the NL? Absolutely not. Truth be told they are still probably the third best team in the NL West. But they have closed the gap on both the Dodgers and Giants and at the very least they are a legitimate wild card contender. And people are certainly now talking about the Padres. When was the last time you could have said that? TROUT TAKES HIS SPOT We started talking about Derek Jeter and we will close with the new face of baseball, Mike Trout, who won his first AL MVP Award this season. Trout had MVP numbers the last two seasons, but the deciding factor in most voters eyes was the fact that Miguel Cabreras Detroit Tigers reached the postseason, while the Angels sat home in October. This year, though, Trout almost willed the Halos to the postseason, as he hit .287 to go along with a league-best 115 runs scored, while setting career- highs with 36 home runs and 111 RBI. He also stole 16 bases in 18 attempts However, he did lead the AL with 184 strikeouts, but for the third year in a row led all of baseball with a 7.9 WAR. His 338 total bases, 137 runs created and 84 extra-base hits also topped the AL. You could make the case that this was the worst of his three seasons, but regardless, the 23-year-old is headed toward his first of what could be many AL MVP Awards. ' ' '

    • Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork. Discount Air Jordan .com) - What a difference two and a half weeks make. The Seattle Seahawks rode their defense to beat the San Francisco 49ers again as the bitter rivals continue heading in opposite directions. Marshawn Lynch ran for 91 yards and a touchdown and the Seahawks stifled the 49ers in the second half, eliminating them from playoff contention following a 17-7 victory on Sunday. Seattle (10-4) allowed 178 yards to San Francisco (7-7) in the first half, but clamped down and limited the 49ers to a meager 67 over the final 30 minutes. The Seahawks blanked the 49ers 14-0 in the second half. Fake Jordan . However, Therrien added that Galchenyuks status for next Wednesdays game against the Detroit Red Wings is questionable. Galchenyuk has been out since Jan. 6 with a broken right hand. Air Jordan Outlet . Fielder has been out with a herniated disk in his neck, and surgery was recommended after a follow-up exam and another scan Thursday with Dr.CANTON, Ohio - Andre Williams ran up some big numbers at Boston College. The fourth-round draft pick is showing glimpses that can do it for the New York Giants, too. Williams had seven carries for 48 yards and scored on a 3-yard run in a 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night in the preseason-opening Hall of Fame Game. "It gives me confidence. I feel like Im supposed to be here," said Williams, who led the nation with 2,177 yards rushing last season. "Im part of the team now." And a more important part with David Wilson sidelined after sustaining his second neck injury in less than a year. Filling the No. 2 spot behind newly acquired starter Rashad Jennings, the Heisman Trophy finalist helped provide the Giants re-tooled backfield a 1-2 punch. "I though he played well, and that was encouraging," coach Tom Coughlin said. "David Wilsons injury not-withstanding, its very important to us no matter what, because you need a natural rotation." Williams score, which came after a 21-yard scamper off left tackle, put the Giants up 7-3 late in the first quarter. Rookie receiver Corey Washington scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 73-yard pass up the right sideline from backup Ryan Nassib with 13:18 remaining. Washington reached back to catch the partly under-thrown pass, then stepped around flat-footed defender Kamaal McIlwain. Nassib, competing for the backup spot, went 7 of 12 for 139 yards. Starter Eli Manning played three series, and finished 6 of 7 for 43 yards, but lost a fumble. For Buffalo, starting quarterback EJ Manuel had several lapses during two series. He completed just 2 of 7 attempts for 19 yards, and nearly had a pass intercepted by linebacker Jacquian Williams inside the New York 10. Manuel never looked off his intended target Sammy Watkins and was fortunate to have Williams bat the ball down. "I would have liked to throw a touchdown pass or to score a touchdown while I was in, but its our first game," said Manuel, the second-year player who has been inconsistent through the first two weeks of training camp. "We goot our feet wet, and were looking forward to moving on to playing Carolina. Cheap Jordan From China. quot; Coach Doug Marrone didnt sound as positive regarding the play of any of his quarterbacks. "Obviously, the performances were not good for a win," Marrone said. "Weve got to get better, all of them." Bills backup Jeff Tuel hit Robert Woods for a 2-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal to put Buffalo ahead 10-7 early in the second quarter. Tuel finished 12 of 17 for 74 yards and an interception. Watkins, the Bills first-round pick, was held without a catch after being targeted three times. Two passes from Manuel directed Watkins way were tipped. Manuel also was late in finding Watkins flying up the left sideline, and overthrew him by a few yards. It was a disappointing debut for Watkins, who had made numerous highlight-reel catches during the first two weeks of training camp. Dan Carpenter made two field goals, including a 51-yarder. New Yorks Brandon McManus hit a 47-yard field goal The Bills are coming off a 6-10 season in which they extended their playoff drought to 14 seasons — the NFLs longest active streak. The Giants (7-9) had a busy off-season attempting to restock a team that has missed the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. The NFL unveiled a few new wrinkles that will run through the first two weeks of the preseason. New Yorks Josh Brown hit two and Carpenter hit his extra-point attempt, all of which were snapped from the 15-yard line rather than the 2. NOTES: Giants TE Daniel Fells left because of a sprained knee. ... Coaches and players on the sidelines also had the opportunity to view pictures of plays on tablets and in colour — an improvement over the black-and-white still photos that were printed off on paper. Marrone said his tablet initially didnt work. The problem was fixed and he used the technology in the second half. ... The game was played a day after the seven-member 2014 class was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The group included former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan and former Bills receiver Andre Reed. ' ' '

    • BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- Defying all the doubters, Costa Rica came through perhaps the toughest group of the World Cup unbeaten and on top. Avisail Garcia Rays Jersey . Costa Rica followed up its wins over Uruguay and Italy by holding England to a dour 0-0 draw on Tuesday, enough to finish first in Group D. Quite an achievement for a team that was seen as the rank outsider in the first ever World Cup group that contained three former champions. "It wasnt the death group after all -- at least not for us," Costa Rica coach Jorge Luis Pinto said. He dedicated the qualification to "those who believed in us and those who didnt." "People started believing after the game against Italy," he added. Uruguay also advanced from the group after beating Italy 1-0. Costa Rica only needed a draw to top Group D and played that way, setting up in a defensive 5-3-2 formation against England. The result gives Costa Rica its best World Cup performance. While Los Ticos reached the knockout stages in 1990, they finished second in a weaker group. Costa Rica will now play the runner-up in Group C in the second round. "We will have to keep fighting," Pinto said. "Whatever happens we are willing to fight." England lost its first two matches to Italy and Uruguay and was already eliminated. England goes home from Brazil without a win after striker Daniel Sturridge missed a number of chances Tuesday. But coach Roy Hodgson thought his team showed spirit against the Costa Ricans, trying to break down a stubborn defence. "We showed today what a good team we can be," England coach Roy Hodgson said. "Apart from the first 10 minutes, I thought we dominated." One of Sturridges best opportunities came in the 65th after a nice one-two with midfielder Jack Wilshere. But the forwards curling shot from the right just missed squeezing inside the far post. Costa Rica had started the match brightly, passing the ball around midfield with ease and making England chase them around. Forward Joel Campbell had an early chance, but his shot from inside the area deflected off Gary Cahill and went just wide in the second minute. Costa Ricas best chance came in the 23rd minute when Celso Borges curling free kick was tipped onto the crossbar and out for a corner by England goalkeeper Ben Foster. But that was about it in terms of attacking for the Costa Ricans and they were happy to absorb England pressure, especially in the second half. Pinto defended his team defensive tactics, saying Costa Rica was also out to attack. "Some people said we would only defend," he said. "No, thats not true. You have seen it. We have been able to attack as well. That is why we are very proud," With nothing to play for, Hodgson made nine changes to the England team, fielding a slew of younger talent, including Adam Lallana, Ross Barkley and Luke Shaw. Englands backup players looked disjointed in the first half, giving the ball away easily and finding it difficult to break through Costa Ricas setup. Wilshere made a fine run down the left in the 12th, setting up Sturridge just outside the area, but the forwards curling shot just missed wide. Wayne Rooney came on as a substitute late in the second half and made an instant impact for England. He found space just outside Costa Ricas area in the 80th, but the backpedalling Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas was able to tip it over the bar and out for a corner. While England showed improvement in the second half, the team just couldnt find a way a through Costa Ricas rearguard. A hardcore group of about 150 England fans stayed in the stands long after the final whistle in an otherwise empty Mineirao Stadium, chanting loudly and jumping up and down. About 25 armed riot police with shields and batons formed a line behind stewards who were urging them to leave. Singing "England Till We Die," the fans eventually left the stands peacefully. ------ Lineups: Costa Rica: Keylor Navas; Giancarlo Gonzalez, Roy Miller, Oscar Duarte, Junior Diaz; Cristian Gamboa, Yeltsin Tejeda, Celso Borges (Michael Barrantes, 78), Bryan Ruiz (captain); Randall Brenes (Christian Bolanos, 59), Joel Campbell (Marcos Urena, 65).

Buffalos defensive co-ordinator had his second interview with Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner on Tuesday night, a person familiar with the Browns plans told The Associated Press.FORT MYERS, Fla. - Grady Sizemores long journey back from a series of injuries that almost ended his promising career is complete: He will be the Boston Red Soxs starting centre fielder on opening day. The three-time All-Star is set to play for the World Series champions Monday at Baltimore. "Its very exciting," Sizemore said Friday. "Its been a long road for me and Im happy to keep moving forward and to be in this position for this team." Sizemore beat out highly regarded prospect Jackie Bradley Jr. for the starting job. The Red Sox said Friday that Bradley will begin the season at Triple-A Pawtucket. Sizemore has not played in the majors since September 2011 with Cleveland. He has undergone seven operations since 2009, including surgery on both knees, his back and elbow. The Red Sox lost star centre fielder Jacoby Ellsbury to the Yankees in free agency during the off-season. Boston signed the 31-year-old Sizemore in January, hoping he could still make an impact. Sizemore hit .333 in spring training, going 13 for 39 with a home run, two doubles, three walks, and four strikeouts. He held up well in the outfield, playing 82 innings. "This is one of those situations where the game was taken away from a player and now that its back in his reach, that appreciation is only going to grow," Farrell said. "Theres a greater appreciation that I think any player goes through when theyre able to attain that level again. "He hasnt had any push back with the repetition and the volume in spring training, saying his body cant take it," Farrell added. "We have had a cautious level of optimism with each passing day." Entering spring training, the Red Sox were not sure what to expect from Sizemore. But hes passed every marker. Whats left is too see how he holds up during the rigours of a full season. Emilio Pagan Rays Jersey. "As far as the durability question, we answered it as best we could given the number of spring training games," Farrell said. "He will still be on a progression in the month of April where theres a prescribed number of games played and theres a progression to that. Its premature to give you an exact number of games per week. But were working toward an everyday status." Sizemore was a third-round pick of the Montreal Expos in 2000 before being acquired in a six-player deal by Cleveland in 2002 when Farrell was the Indians director of player development. Before his injuries, Sizemore was one of baseballs most dynamic players. A left-handed batter, he hit 20 or more home runs with 20 or more stolen bases in each of his first four full seasons, from 2005-08, the most 20-20 seasons in Indians history. The only other players ever to record three 20-20 seasons within their first four big league seasons are Darryl Strawberry (1984-86) and Bobby Bonds (1969-71). Despite his time away from the game, Sizemore never gave up on his baseball career, though. "I didnt think it was over," he said. "I just didnt know if Id ever get back to feeling healthy. It wasnt really a matter of playing baseball. It was the little things like being able to run. It was one of those things where youre just trying to find answers." The last few years have not been easy on Sizemore. After appearing in a total of 639 games from 2005-08, he has played in just 210 since. But, on Monday, expect that to change. "Its nice to have some positive news," Sizemore said. "In the last couple of years everythings been so negative. Its almost hard to realize whats going on. Hard to sink in." ' ' '

    • BALTIMORE - Asked to assess the importance of Sundays game against the Baltimore Ravens, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers supplied an answer that should stand for the rest of the season. Grossiste Chaussure Pas Cher .Its kind of what youd expect this time of year, with the two teams fighting for a (playoff) spot, Rivers noted. So, itll be exciting and a heck of a challenge for us.This will be the first of five straight games for San Diego (7-4) against teams with winning records and post-season aspirations. The Chargers have defeated just one team with a winning record, Seattle in Week 2.San Diego certainly cant afford to look past this game, but coach Mike McCoy and his players are well aware that New England, Denver, San Francisco and Kansas City loom in December.Weve got five teams coming up that are, shoot, as good as they get, free safety Eric Weddle said. Were either going to win a bunch and get in or we dont. I think the team is focused, were ready. We showed it last week (in a 27-24 win over St. Louis).Weve got to get this next one. Its the only one that matters.Because San Diego and Baltimore own identical records, the winner will have the tiebreaker if the teams finish tied for a wild-card spot.Every game right now is like a playoff game for us, Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith said. Its really going to be about who wants it more. We have to be at our best right now, and we understand that.Some things to know about the Chargers-Ravens matchup:INDESTRUCTABLE QBs: Rivers has started every game since the beginning of the 2006 season, and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco hasnt missed a start since taking the job as a rookie in the 2008 season opener.Flacco expressed his respect for Rivers by saying: Its pretty cool. Thats what football is all about. Its not the fact that hes not missed a game, its the fact that he has been hurt in certain instances and has played through it.Since taking over as coach in Baltimore in 2008, Harbaugh has never had anyone but Flacco as his starter.Durability is every bit as important as ability, Harbaugh said. You can be the most talented guy in the world, but if youre not there to do the job it really doesnt matter.GATES ENDURES: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates has been catching touchdown passes since 2003 with no sign of letting up. With four more TD receptions, he will become the ninth player in NFL history with 100.You look at the tape, and youre hoping that hes going to age out at some point, Harbaugh said, grinning. We all do at some point, but he hasnt yet. He continues to adjust his game. He really does a great job of bodying up and making plays as a receiver. Hes still a downfield threat. Hes a go-to guy for Philip Rivers.NEAR 1,000: Ravens running back Justin Forsett needs 97 yards rushing to reach 1,000 for the first time in his seven-year career. He is coming off two straight 100-yard games and scored two TDs in each of those contests.Our offensive line, it starts with those guys, Flacco said. Theyre doing a lot of things really well right now.Stopping Forsett is a priority for the Chargers, whose rushing defence ranks 15th in the NFL.MR. SMITH GOES TO BALTIMORE: Steve Smith ended up in Baltimore after being released by Carolina, but the Chargers also coveted the veteran wide receiver.McCoy, a former assistant at Carolina, dialed up Smith after the Panthers cut him.It was more just a conversation to see where he was at and what his plans were, McCoy said. Obviously, he made a great decision for him and his family, and hes having a great year.Smith leads the Ravens with 53 catches for 817 yards and has scored five touchdowns.HE LIKES ME: Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who surpassed 100 career sacks last week in a win over New Orleans, usually doesnt speak well of opposing quarterbacks. He made an exception this week when asked about Rivers.I dont like many quarterbacks in this league, Suggs said. Andy Dalton is one, hes another, and theres a few more. But thats about it.Rivers has no desire to talk about it Sunday.I hope not to have too much interaction with him. That means hes either laying on top of me or getting back there a lot, Rivers said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Air Max 270 Pas Cher Chine . Minutes after the previously winless Colts got their first win, 27-13 over Tennessee, team vice chairman Bill Polian said the four-time league MVP will not play this season though he has begun throwing to teammates at the team complex. Air Max 270 France Pas Cher . According to a report from ESPN, the Green Bay Packers have re-signed the cornerback to a four-year, $39 million deal with a $12.LISBON, Portugal -- Atletico Madrids only previous European Cup final appearance branded the club with the nickname that has come to encapsulate its penchant for misfortune. Beating Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday may finally put that moniker to rest. Atletico was on the cusp of winning the European Cup on its first appearance in the final in 1974, leading Bayern Munich 1-0 in extra time after Luis Aragones curled home in the 114th-minute at Heysel Stadium. The Spanish club was clinging on until defender Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck stepped up to smash home a powerful right-footed equalizer from outside the area in the 120th-minute. Without penalties to decide the champion, a replay was scheduled just two days later in Brussels. But having experienced the title slipping from its grasp in such fashion proved too much for Atletico, and it lost 4-0 to a team featuring Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Mueller. Following the defeat, president Vicente Calderon termed Atletico "the jinxed ones" or "pupas." "We practically had the trophy in our hands," said Atletico goalkeeper Miguel Reina, father of Spain international Pepe, reminiscing of what could have been before Schwarzenbecks low shot beat him. The loss seems to have had a long-lasting effect on the club. "Atleticos history may have been different with that title, which was the first for Bayern," said former striker Jose Eulogio Garate, who played in that final 40 years ago. Atleticos history is filled with success and clouded by unnecessary turmoil and disorder. Such is Atleticos knack for dramatics that the team hymn includes the phrase: "What a Way to Suffer." One of the most famous advertising campaigns in Spain featured a young child looking up at his fathher to ask "Daddy, why do we support Atleti?" The father looks off in thought before the phrase "Its hard to explain" takes over the screen. Air Max 720 Soldes. During its Spanish league title winning run this season, Atletico did the near unthinkable -- it did not stumble or implode as might have been expected. Instead, coach Diego Simeones team showed the verve of a champion and a knack for coming through when it counted to secure a fourth major trophy since 2009/10 -- following two Europa League titles and a Copa del Rey. "The club is growing. Were pushing forward, building a stronger team, getting better -- despite the economic differences in this league," said Simeone, who has also relied on one of the top qualities of the 1974 team -- strength on the counter attack. Atletico won the Intercontinental Cup after Bayern spurned its invite, and it has an impressive trophy haul overall: 10 Spanish league titles, 10 Copa del Reys, one Cup Winners Cup, two Europa Leagues and two European Super Cups. "Its been seven or eight years now that pupas doesnt follow us anymore," Atletico president Enrique Cerezo said after the club secured its first league title since 1996 last Saturday. "When Calderon labeled the team that, it certainly was at that time. Maybe now they should call us the good luck ones." That could be difficult as Atletico almost seems to embrace the nickname at times, like when it celebrated the 40th anniversary of its lone European Cup final defeat last week. "Atletico does represent something different, something special," said Spanish coach Javier Irureta, who played against Bayern. "Usually they only organize homages for champions, not for the losers. "But the club is like that." ' ' '

    • ST. Rowland Office Braves Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The St. Louis Cardinals are pitching so well all they need right now to win is one run. Adam Wainwright became the NLs first nine-game winner, and the Cardinals beat Tampa Bay 1-0 on Tuesday night, the Rays third straight shutout loss. The Cardinals have three consecutive shutouts for the first time since April 2013. St. Louis, with 13 shutouts this season, was coming off 5-0 victories over Toronto on Saturday and Sunday. "Our starting pitching has been extremely good these last few, to say the least," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. It is the Cardinals first stretch of three consecutive road shutouts since Sept. 29, 1962-April 10, 1963 when St. Louis had four in a row. "Pretty amazing," said St. Louis slugger Matt Holliday, who homered. Tampa Bay has been shut out an AL-leading 10 times this season. The Rays, who have lost 14 of 15, have not scored a run in a club-record 28 innings. "Its kind of weird to watch because it just doesnt stay that negative for that long normally," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "It just doesnt but it has. This is truly one of those anomaly moments where weve got to stick together as a group." Wainwright (9-3) scattered seven hits over seven innings. Trevor Rosenthal got the final four outs, including a base-loaded pop fly by Matt Joyce in the eighth, for his 17th save. Holliday put the Cardinals up 1-0 with his fourth homer this season, a long drive to left centre with two outs in the sixth off tough-luck loser Jake Odorizzi (2-7). Holliday and Kolten Wong both returned to the Cardinals lineup. Holliday was scratched Sunday due to a sore lower back, while Wong sat out three games with left shoulder soreness. Holliday said his back is still a little stiff. "Loosened up enough so I could get some good swings," he said. Odorizzi, a Cardinals fan who grew up about 30 miles from Busch Stadium, had a strong performance in his first game against St. Louis. The right-hander gave up one run and three hits in a career-high 7 1-3 innings. "Today I felt I was really executing my pitches and nothing they could do was going to beat me," Odorizzi said. "One mistake by me and I got beat. It was the best outing Ive ever had in the big leagues." Odorizzi had allowed one baserunner, a fourth-inning walk to Holliday, before giving up consecutive two-out singles in the fifth to Jhonny Peralta and John Jay. The inning ended on a fly ball by Peter Bourjos. The Rays threatened in both the first and fourth innings. Ben Zobrist hit a fly ball with two on to end the first. Logan Forsythe lined out to second with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth. "Its a tough lineup, it really is," Wainwright said. "Theyre going through a funk, I know. As soon as we leave town, theyre going to break out. Ive got a feeling." Sam Freeman inherited two runners and then got two key outs in the eighth before Rosenthal replaced him. NOTES: Former Cardinals manager and Tampa native Tony La Russa will throw the ceremonial first pitch before the finale of the two-game interleague series Wednesday night. La Russa will be inducted into baseballs Hall of Fame on July 27. ... Tampa Bay C Ryan Hanigan (right hamstring tightness) will be activated from the 15-day DL on Wednesday. To make room on the roster, C Ali Solis was optioned to Triple-A Durham. ... The Rays signed 2014 first-round draft pick Casey Gillaspie, a 1B out of Wichita State. ... St. Louis 1B Matt Adams (strained left calf) has started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis. ... This was the third time that Tampa Bay C Jose Molina and his brother, Cardinals C Yadier Molina, have played against each other in the majors. ...

    • NEW YORK -- The latest high-priced addition to the New York Yankees stood on the dais in front of a large news conference, put on his pinstriped jersey with No. Ted Karras Jersey . 19 and smiled. "Hello. My name is Masahiro Tanaka," he said slowly in English. "Im very happy to be a Yankee." After chartering a Boeing 787 Dreamliner for his trip from Tokyo to New York, the 25-year-old right-hander with the $155 million, seven-year contract was presented Tuesday not in the news conference room downstairs at Yankee Stadium, but in the Legends Suite Club, where the high rollers congregate on game days. Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo concluded the teams latest Pacific overture drew New Yorks most-attended news conference since Hideki Matsui was introduced in January 2003. Managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said obtaining Tanaka was worth the economic pain of exceeding the $189 million luxury tax threshold New York had hoped to stay under. "We needed another starter, and when we do things, we try to do them right," Steinbrenner said. "And this guy, hes tough. Hes got tremendous ability. We all know that. And hes going to be very exciting to watch. And hes going to be great for the team, a great teammate. And $189 (million) or not, we wanted a good quality starter, and we got it." Tanaka charted a Japan Airlines plane, which seats about 200, for the trans-Pacific trip to New York, reportedly costing about $200,000. There were just five passengers on the plane, including his pop star wife Mai Satoda, plus their poodle Haru. The flight, originally scheduled to depart at noon, was delayed many hours by a snowstorm. "There wasnt many choices of planes," he said through a translator when asked about the big jet. And a lengthy commercial trip could have been uncomfortable. "I thought about my conditioning, just wanted to get here in the best condition possible," he said. For his first meal in New York, he ventured outside his room at the Mandarin Oriental hotel overlooking Central Park. "I ate a sushi," he said, "which I bought at a grocery store nearby." New York, which also added Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran during the off-season, figures to have a big following in Japan this year. Tanaka joins pitcher Hiroki Kuroda and outfielder Ichiro Suzuki on the roster, and reliever Yoshinori Tateyama will be at spring training with a minor league contract. "This would make the Boss proud," general manager Brian Cashman said in a reference to late owner George Steinbrenner. "The Yankees obviously are about always trying to acquire the best talent and a collection of talent that can compete for a championship, but he also liked a lot of attention, and this certainly represents a lot of attention. So this is Yankee big. This is Steinbrenner big." Tanaka was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year, leading the Rakuten Golden Eagles to the Japan Series title. That left him with a 99-35 record and a 2.30 ERA in Japan, where he had 53 complete games in 172 starts. New York had one of the most successful Japanese players in the major leagues with outfielder Hideki Matsui, the 2009 World Series MVP. And the Yankees experienced costly flops with pitchers Hideki Irabu and Kei Igawa. Manager Joe Girardi was behind the plate for Irabus debut in 1997. "They feel a little bit more weight of representing their country than maybe players that are here on an everyday basis, because they kind of pave the way for the next guy and then the next guy," he said. Girardis advice: "Dont feel like you have to live up to the contract." On a tour of the U.S. with a Japanese high school all-star team in 2006, Tanaka met Matsui when one of the young pitchers games was rained out. During the off-season, he spoke briefly by telephone with Matsui about his pending decision. New York appealed to Tanakas desire to pitch on the biggest stage. "This is where you need to be. A great star. The biggest franchise. The biggest brand. The biggest city," Yankees President Randy Levine remembered saying during the teams pitch session with the player on Jan. 8 in Beverly Hills, Calif. "He said some other teams he had met with wanted him to transition in, and he didnt like that. He wanted to take the ball on Day One, and that told us a lot about him." Tanaka sounded prepared for the Yankees win-or-else mentality. "Ive heard that this place is -- it could be very harsh to you at times," he said. "Just wanted to put myself, though, in this environment and try to see where I can get to with my ability." Cashman is trying to lower expectations, saying Tanaka will slot in as No. 3 in the rotation behind CC Sabathia and Kuroda. "We could be getting more than a three. Maybe its a two. Maybe its even a one at some point," Cashman said. "I think that the adjustments are real, and as excited as we are to have and as much as we need a player of his capabilities, I want to make sure that people understand how difficult this game is over here and that there should be expectations of growing pains." Devin McCourty Jersey .com) - The Los Angeles Dodgers made it official Tuesday and signed pitcher Brandon McCarthy to a four-year contract. New England Patriots Gear .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams.Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - James Harden put the Houston Rockets on his back and willed them to an overtime victory on Thursday. Harden scored a season-high 44 points to lead the Rockets in a 113-109 decision over the Sacramento Kings. Harden, who scored 34 points in a loss to Golden State on Wednesday, sent the game to overtime with a deep 3-pointer, then scored the first 10 Houston points in the extra session. That was definitely a tough game. Those guys on the other side definitely fought hard. We had the same energy, Harden said. We fought through it. Trevor Ariza and Patrick Beverley each netted 15 points and Donatas Motiejunas added 14 points for Houston, which has won five of its last six. Darren Collison had 24 points with seven assists and Ben McLemore tallied 21 points for the Kings. Harden fueled the Rockets comeback in regulation and continued in the extra session as he opened with seven straight points to give the Rockets a 102-95 lead with 3 1/2 minutes to play. The Houston offense ran through Harden in the overtime period. He slashed through the lane for a layup following a free throw from Jason Thompson, then split a pair of free throws to extend the lead to nine. (Harden) made shots when he needed to, Kings forward Gay said. He played great. Gay trimmed the deficit to six with a 3-pointer, but Harden drove on two defenders and skipped a pass over to Beverley, who nailed a corner 3 with 45.3 seconds left. Beverley missed 3-of-4 free throws down the stretch that allowed the Kings to hang around as Nik Stauskas trey made it a three-point game. Collison buried a 3 following a pair of free throws from Jason Terry, but Harden closed his evening with two free throws to account for the final margin. Mike Haynes Jersey. The Rockets trailed by as many as 10 in the fourth. Harden tied the game at 88-88 with a tough dunk through traffic with 2 1/2 minutes left. Each team traded a basket before Gay drove and kicked out to an open Derrick Williams, who hit a 3-pointer to make it a 93-90 game. Motiejunas was whistled for his sixth foul at the other end, which allowed Thompson to make a pair of free throws and stretch it to a two-possession game. Houston trailed by three when Harden tossed up a high-arching trey that hit nothing but cotton to tie the game at 95-95 with 20.5 seconds on the clock. Gays jumper from just inside the arc rattled out on Sacramentos final chance in regulation. The Rockets grabbed the rebound and called a timeout with under a second left, but Hardens final effort was long. Sacramento led 46-36 at the half. Houston opened the third quarter on a 10-3 run to close the gap to 49-46 just 2 1/2 minutes in. Later in the quarter, Beverley nailed a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to two, 55-53, then the Kings ripped off 10 straight as a McLemore dunk off a feed from Collison highlighted the surge. Harden scored the final four points of the third to cut it to 69-61 entering the fourth. Game Notes Houston has won four straight over the Kings ... Sacramento has lost two straight overall ... Williams scored 17 points off the bench in the setback ... Joey Dorsey had a career-high five steals in the win ... Houston went 15- of-44 from beyond the arc ... The Rockets scored 27 points off turnovers, while the Kings netted 20 off turnovers ... Thompson finished with 13 points and 15 rebounds for Sacramento. ' ' '

    • (SportsNetwork. Jason Pierre-Paul Buccaneers Jersey .com) - The struggling Edmonton Oilers will try to put the brakes on a three-game losing streak when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs in Tuesdays clash at Rexall Place. The Oilers will a key contributor back their lineup as centre Sam Gagner is expected to return after missing the last 13 games due to a broken jaw suffered in the preseason. The Oilers are 0-2-1 over their last three games and have lost eight of their last 10 contests. Edmonton used a strong performance by goaltender Richard Bachman in their last contest to eke out a point in a shootout loss against the Los Angeles Kings. Bachman made 47 saves through regulation and overtime in Sundays road game, but then allowed Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar to score for the Kings in the shootout phase. "I liked the way we stayed in the fight," Edmonton head coach Dallas Eakins said. "We were under siege, especially in the third. I dont think the guys had a lot left in the tank, but Bachman was excellent." Nail Yakupov scored the lone goal for the Oilers in regulation and Jordan Eberle was the only Edmonton shooter to beat Jonathan Quick in the shootout portion. The Oilers enter Tuesdays home test with a 1-3-0 record on home ice and the Maple Leafs have won two straight and four of their last five games in Edmonton. The Maple Leafs have taken four straight from Edmonton in this series overall, but the last two meetings were decided in overtime. Toronto is coming off Saturdays win against the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins. Nazem Kadri potted the game winner just 1:26 into the final period to help the Maple Leafs down the Penguins, 4-1, at Air Canada Centre. Dave Bolland added two goals, Phil Kessel had a goal and an assist and James Reimer turned away 37 shots for the Maple Leafs, who had dropped three of four coming into the game. "I felt good. There wasnt too much rust. I felt comfortable and the guys played a great game," Reimer said. Reimer is expected to start in goal this evening. The Maple Leafs played their second straight game without key forward Joffrey Lupul on Saturday and the winger is a game-time decision for tonights contest. The oft-injured Lupul, who has six goals and four assists this season, is battling a bruised foot. Toronto is kicking off a three-game road trip tonight and is 3-2-0 as the visiting team this season. Chandler Catanzaro Jersey . Murray, the defending champion and No. 3 seed, claimed his first match win at Queens in 2005 and went on to win the Wimbledon warmup three times.

But qualifying for her first Scotties Tournament of Hearts after years of falling short in tough Manitoba provincial championships is as good as consolation prizes get for the 29-year-old from Winnipegs Fort Rouge Curling Club.CHICAGO - If it was a sneak preview of the future at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night, then Chicago Cubs fans cant wait for the sequel. Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Rizzo hit two home runs and 24-year-old Kyle Hendricks pitched seven innings for his first major league victory, leading the Cubs to a 6-0 victory over the San Diego Padres that snapped their five-game losing streak. And rookie Arimendy Alcantara hit the hardest ball of the night, a blast over the bleachers in right field that landed on Sheffield Avenue. "I just try to hit the ball," the 22-year-old Alcantara said. "If it goes far, that is OK." "Theyre not looking like theyre too bothered by being at the major league level," manager Rick Renteria noticed. "Theyre just playing the game, simplifying it between the lines." Rizzo staked Hendricks to a 2-0 lead in the third inning with a solo homer. Four innings later, Alcantara and Rizzo hit back-to-back homers off Blaine Boyer for a 5-0 lead. Rizzo became the first National League player to reach 25 homers this season, his career high. He finished with 23 homers in 160 games last season. "Im not stronger than I was last year, I dont think," said Rizzo, who credited a more disciplined approach for his recent power surge. Recalled from Triple-A Iowa earlier Tuesday, Hendricks (1-0) made short work of an anemic Padres lineup that entered the game with a total of 29 home runs and 103 RBIs. In his second start of the season, the right-hander allowed five hits and threw only 83 pitches, two that were clocked faster than 88 mph. He walked three and struck out five. "Best day of my life," Hendricks called it. "Awesome." The Padres had two runners on base in the first, third and fifth innings, but the Cubs turned two of their season-high four double plays to erase the last two threats. In the process,, Hendricks continued to erase doubts that he could finesse his way to the next level. Vinny Curry Buccaneers Jersey. "You wonder that when you come up," said Hendricks, whose father John was in attendance. "Thats definitely the hardest thing in baseball — to trust your stuff. But thats what you have to fall back on also." Eric Stults (3-12) lasted only five innings in the muggy conditions and took the loss, the ninth in his last 10 decisions. He gave up three runs and six hits and walked three. "Yeah, we get spoiled by the weather in San Diego," Stults said. "So tonight definitely the humidity was something I wasnt used to. Its hard to catch your breath. The way (Hendricks) threw, he had some quick innings. It felt like I was sitting down and getting right back up."

    • Fresh off his wedding in Mexico, Kyle Dubass off-season got even better on Tuesday when the Maple Leafs announced that the 28-year-old had been hired as their new assistant general manager. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro High Og . Dubas joined TSN 1050 following his introductory press conference to discuss his rapid rise to the front office of one of the NHLs most high profile franchises, his use of analytics and how he plans to work with Dave Nonis and Brendan Shanahan.

Brett Bulmer scored the lone goal for the Wild (6-11-0), who dropped their sixth straight contest.CARDIFF -- Wales gave a two-time defending champions response to a demoralizing defeat by whipping France 27-6 and keeping its Six Nations title defence alive on Friday. So shaken to the core was Wales by its 26-3 demolition from Ireland, the only unbeaten team left in the championship, that coach Warren Gatland warned his British Lions-laden side that careers were on the line under the Millennium Stadium roof. The players answer was a robust performance of power, pace and poise, adding up to a third straight win over France last achieved 42 years ago. "That was the response we were looking for," captain Sam Warburton said. "We knew we had it in us." He admitted playing for their jobs was also an incentive. "We said in the week that we dont want to take our places for granted. We have probably worked our hardest in the last two weeks," he said. Stand-in centre George North scored after five minutes and fullback Leigh Halfpennys boot punished frequent French errors and a second-rate scrum with five penalties that propped up a 20-6 halftime lead. When Warburton reached out to plant the ball on the line in the 64th, the score became Wales biggest win over France at home since 1950. That margin will be vital in terms of points difference in the standings if Wales, which jumped over previously unbeaten France into second place, can stay on track and Ireland lose somewhere. The Irish are at Twickenham on Saturday. Wales performance wasnt assured beforehand, certainly not after lock Alun-Wyn Jones, who captained the Lions in their series-clinching win in Australia last year, withdrew just before the match with a foot injury. That gave a second Welshman, Jake Ball, his first test start beside scrumhalf Rhys Webb, whose zippy pass was a big factor in Wales frantic start. Five minutes in, lineout ball was spread left and inside centre Jamie Roberts drew two defenders. North gave Halfpenny an overlap and he chipped ahead. France fullback Bruce Dulin claimed the ball just before the tryline, but he was accidentally clipped in the head by teammate Jean-Marc Doussain and dropped the ball, which North pounced on in goal. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro White. Halfpenny couldnt convert. He seemed to kick only the hardest goalkicks, and France kept giving him chances, especially from a scrum that Wales eventually got on top of. Captain Pascal Pape conceded the second penalty from a ruck, and tighthead prop Nicolas Mas the third for slipping in a scrum. Wesley Fofana was milked by North in a ruck for Halfpennys fourth, and a tighthead conceded just before halftime ended up giving Halfpenny his fifth penalty. Moments before then, referee Alain Rolland told both captains the scrum was a mess and threatened to dish out cards. He upheld his promise in the 50th, sin-binning Mas and counterpart Gethin Jenkins. By then, Wales was in charge and the outmuscled French had few options. "It was a catastrophic first half, our discipline was poor, and we gave away too many penalties," France coach Philippe Saint-Andre said. "We were totally apathetic in the first half." Dulin said, "They got on top of us very quickly and we couldnt pull ourselves together. We didnt go about things the right way. "We didnt start the game well and they just gained in confidence. After their match against Ireland they really wanted to put their foot down." France had a try rightfully disallowed early in the first half for a knockon, but the backs received no ball and didnt go close again until the 50th, when centre Mathieu Bastareaud slipped North and was stopped just short of the tryline, and couldnt offload to Dulin or winger Hugo Bonneval. The French backs were more involved in the second half, but Wales defence was smothering. Frustrated No. 8 Louis Picamoles got himself sin-binned in the 62nd and Wales took advantage. From a Roberts barging run up the middle, Warburton charged off a ruck and just managed in a double tackle with an outstretched arm to put the ball on the line. With 10 minutes to go, Wales substituted Adam Jones and Jenkins, Ball, Dan Lydiate, Webb, Rhys Priestland and Halfpenny, and all were cheered off as returning heroes deserve to be. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys CanadaCheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

    • PITTSBURGH -- Bernhard Langer made a short birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff with Jeff Sluman to win the Senior Players Championship on Sunday. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Gold . Langer appeared to be in trouble when his second shot on the par-5 18th ended up in the rough short of the green. He hit a brilliant pitch to 5 feet and made the putt after Slumans birdie attempt rolled just wide. The victory was the 56-year-old Langers third of the year and his third major title on the Champions Tour. The two-time Masters champion shot an even-par 70 to finish at 15-under 265 at Fox Chapel. Sluman had a bogey-free 65 to match Langer, but narrowly missed a birdie putt on the first playoff hole that would have won it. Russ Cochran, who trailed by seven shots early in the final round, had a 67 to finish third at 14 under. Defending champion Kenny Perry tied Langer for the lead heading into the back nine, but faded badly over the closing holes. Perrys 69 left him two shots out of the playoff. Langer nearly missed out on the playoff himself. He fought a balky putter much of the day only to hole a 35-foot birdie putt on the 17th that lifted him into a tie with Sluman. The normally reserved German pumped his fist in disbelief after the ball dropped into the cup. He parred 18 to match Sluman at 15 under and escaped one more time when Slumans birdie attempt on the first playoff hole burned the right edge. Sluman, the 1988 PGA champion, covered his hands in disbelief after the putt stayed out. Langer didnt let the reprieve go to waste, birdieing the 18th on his third try to earn his first major title on the 50-and-over circuit since the 2010 Senior British Open. It didnt come easy for a player who started the day with a comfortable three-shot advantage over Perry. The steady play that kept Langer atop the leaderboard for the better part of 54 holes abandoned him early in the round, opening the door for the rest of the field. Langer missed a short par putt at the par-4 fourth, and he turned the 295-yard par-4 seventh into an adventure when his pitch sailed over the green and his 5-foot comebacker for par popped off the back edge of the cup. Perry, who promised to go into "attack mode" to chase down his good friend, had little trouble tracking Langer down. He pulled even with a birdie at the seventh and did it again at the ninth, when he bounced back from a bogey at the eighth by holing out from a greenside bunker for birdie. A back-nine duel, however, never materialized. Both players started spraying shots -- including an ugly double bogey for Langer at the par-4 12th -- while Sluman quietly went about his business in the group ahead. Sluman slowly reeled in the front-runners, taking the lead with a birdie on the par-4 14th and adding another at the par-4 16th while Perry and Langer faltered behind him. The streaky Perry, trying to join Arnold Palmer as the only player to win consecutive Senior Players titles, cooled as the pressure mounted. He shot 3-over 38 on the back, failing to make a single birdie down the stretch as the crisp iron game that vaulted him into contention vanished. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Rose .

The pair will go head to head in Saturdays 12.30pm kick-off, live on Sky Sports 1HD from 11.30am, with Arsenal looking to climb top of the Premier League and add to Jose Mourinhos troubled start to life at Old Trafford.However, the hosts are marginal favourites with Sky Bet as Mourinho looks to extend his unbeaten record against Arsene Wenger, but Le Tiss believes the Gunners boast a superior squad. In fact, two of his five United picks are unavailable for the clash, with Eric Bailly sidelined with a knee injury while Zlatan Ibrahimovic serves a one-match ban.Heres his best line-up from both squads if all were fit and available... GOALKEEPERIts close one to start with and Petr Cech is obviously a very good goalkeeper as well but I have to go with David de Gea. He has youth on his side and three excellent seasons behind him.DEFENDERSIve gone with the two Arsenal full-backs, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal. Bellerin is up there with the best right-backs in the league and I think theyll really miss him, while Monreal has been pretty consistent. Hector Bellerin has been ruled out for four weeks with an ankle injury United have had to play Antonio Valencia, who has done a decent job but is not a natural right-back. If Luke Shaw was fit and playing on a regular basis hed be in there. Even two years ago it would have been no contest against Monreal, but obviously its been a tough 18 months for him.At centre-back my first pick in Laurent Koscielny. Hes almost like an old school centre-back. I like him a lot and he has been very consistent this season.Then Im going for Eric Bailly. I think hell turn into a very good centre-back. Hes obviously injured at the moment but I think hell be a very good signing for them in the long term. Charlie predicts Find out what Charlie Nicholas is tipping up at 25/1 for Man Utd v Arsenal. MIDFIELDERSMy holding midfielders would be Paul Pogba and Santi Cazorla. I think Pogba can play in either the holding or number 10 role but jjust needs time and the expectation to calm down. Brian ONeill Vikings Jersey. .As for Cazorla, I think hes an underrated player and has adapted well to the position. He rarely gives the ball away and great with two feet.On the left of my attacking midfielders would be Mesut Ozil. It would be very difficult to leave him out of any team. Hes such a brilliant creative player with great vision and a fantastic passer of the ball. Alexis Sanchez is set to be assessed after international action Then on the right Ive got the Duracell bunny Alexis Sanchez. Hes got incredible energy to go with incredible talent and is just a fantastic example to the team with his work rate.In the middle Ive gone for a player Ive always had a soft spot for, Juan Mata. Hes got lot of talent but not so much pace, which perhaps reminds me of someone! Hes a bit underrated because of that lack of speed but Ive always had a lot of time for him. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price STRIKERIm going with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over Olivier Giroud and Wayne Rooney, who I still think can play there. Marcus Rashford was probably closest to getting in and I think he may well lead the line on Saturday after what he did to Arsenal last time, but I still think United will miss Ibrahimovics presence up front.FANTASY SIX-A-SIDETheres £5,000 up for grabs in Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side for the highest-scoring team from Manchester United v Arsenal.

    • MILWAUKEE -- The NBAs board of governors unanimously approved the sale Thursday of the Milwaukee Bucks to New York investment firm executives Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry, bringing the forlorn franchise one step closer to starting a new era. Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys . Former U.S. senator Herb Kohl reached agreement with them last month for a price tag of about $550 million after they pledged to keep the team in Milwaukee. The NBA said Thursday in a statement that the transaction is expected to close shortly. The leagues expected approval comes days before the NBA holds its draft lottery. The Bucks, who had a league-worst 15 wins, have the best odds to get the No. 1 pick next week for Junes talent-rich draft. "The Bucks and their fans will benefit greatly from their vast business experience, energy and strong commitment to Milwaukee," commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. Lasry and Edens committed to providing $100 million to help build a new arena. Kohl also announced he would donate $100 million for a new facility to replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the teams downtown home, which opened in 1988. Edens had said he hoped to get a plan completed for a new arena in a year, and have it built in a couple of years. He thought it might take about $400 million to build a new facility, though the new owners might face a tricky task in seeking public funding if they dont get more private help. Kohl bought the Bucks for $18 million in 1985. The Milwaukee native, whose family owned a chain of department stores, was hailed as a hometown hero. Silver praised Kohl for his "unprecedented and historic financial gift toward the construction of a new Milwaukee arena and for his outstanding service to the league and his community over his nearly 30-year tenure." An injury-plagued season left the Bucks a franchise-worst 15-67. They have finished above .500 only three times since 2000, though Milwaukee did make the playoffs in 2012-13. The Bucks were swept in four games by Miami in the first round. With new owners and a 25 per cent chance to pick up the No. 1 pick in the draft, the Bucks face a defining off-season. Even if it doesnt win the lottery, Milwaukee cannot fall below the fourth pick in a draft stocked with top prospects, including Dukes Jabari Parker and Kansas Andrew Wiggins. Breeland Speaks Jersey .

    • ROME - Canadian Milos Raonic defeated Italys Simone Bolelli 6-3, 7-6 (5) in second-round play Tuesday at the Italian Open. Cheap Nike Shoes Online . Raonic, the No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., had 18 aces in the match. He needed one hour 39 minutes to complete the victory. Also Tuesday, Novak Djokovic marked his return from a right wrist injury by beating Czech veteran Radek Stepanek 6-3, 7-5, while Italian hope Andreas Seppi complained about a decisive time violation in a loss to Tommy Haas. With both new coach Boris Becker and longtime adviser Marian Vajda on hand, Djokovic showed no signs of pain after withdrawing from last weeks Madrid Open. The second-ranked Serbs only trouble came as he attempted to close the match out, dropping his serve twice late in the second set before eventually finishing it off. "I expected to be a little bit rusty on the court, the conditions didnt help, but generally it was a good win," Djokovic said, alluding to the swirling wind inside the Foro Italico stadium. "Im happy with that and hope to elevate my performance in the next one." Djokovic, a two-time Rome champion, committed just nine unforced errors to Stepaneks 27. It was a sharp contrast from Djokovics last match, when he lost to Roger Federer in the Monte Carlo Masters semifinals last month, when he had his wrist heavily strapped and was unable to serve or return at his usual level. Also advancing was Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka, who routed Spanish qualifier Pere Riba 6-0, 6-3. In first-round action, the 15th-seeded Haas overcame Seppi 6-1, 4-6, 6-3. The 34th-ranked Seppi couldnt believe it when he received his second time violation while serving at 3-3, 30-40 in the third set, following his first serve. The second violation results in a serve being taken away, which meant a double fault for Seppi and he then went on to lose the final three games. "Ive never received a time violation in my life," he said. "I was just waiting because the fans were making a bit of noise. ... Its scandalous. ... And the first one was for nothing, too. (Haas) hit a drop shot and I had to walk back to get the balls. It was really uncalled for." In first-round womens play, Italian wild-card entry Camila Giorgi upset ninth-seeded Dominika Cibulkova 6-4, 7-6 (2) in a match delayed briefly due to rain; 10th-seeded Sara Errani of Italy eliminated Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa 7-5, 6-3; and 13th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro eased past Mona Barthel 6-2, 6-2. There was also an upset in the second round, as Petra Cetkovska of the Czech Republic rallied past seventh-seeded Angelique Kerber 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. The 22-year-old Giorgi, who reached the round of 16 at the U.S. Open last year as a qualifier, showed off her attacking game, stepping into the court to whip winners into the corners at every opportunity. Making her Rome main-draw debut, Giorgi had loud support on the picturesque Pietrangeli court, which is lined with neo-classical statues. "The pressure is positive. Its great that the fans come to see you," Giorgi said. "Playing at home happens only once per year."

    • The Montreal Alouettes have signed four of its defensive players to contract extensions. Brice Butler Jersey . Linebackers Bear Woods (three years) and Winston Venable (one year) signed new deals with the club, while defensive linemen Aaron Lavarias and Scott Paxson each agreed to two-year contracts. These guys all have a passion and love for the game of football, said Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp in a team release. Woods was a finalist for the CFLs Most Outstanding Defensive Player. He finished second in the league with seven sacks and 89 tackles despite missing the team’s first six games. I always felt that if Bear could stay on the field for any amount of games, he could solidify the middle, declared Popp. Last year he proved that he is a tremendous leader and a real force when healthy. The last twelve games last season where as good as anyone has manned the middle in the CFL over the last few years. The 27-year-old also recorded an interception and forced two fumbles. Venable made 52 tackles, including a career-high of nine in a game against Ottawa in September. He led the CFL with four fumble recoveries, one of which he returned for a touchdown. Venable also forced two fumbles in two playoff games for the Alouettes. Winston was cut out for the CFL. He is very versatile and can play Will, Sam, Safety, and even DB in a pinch. His physical nature cant be taught, affirmed Popp. Lavarias has spent two seasons with Montreal and recorded five sacks last year. He is a solid player with a real understanding of the game. His consistency and effort makes you want him on the field at all times, continued Popp. Paxson started 14 games at defensive tackle for the Alouettes last season, recording 11 defensive tackles and two sacks. He is a true professional and a team guy. He is always willing to do what is needed to have success. He is rock solid and accountable, concluded the Alouettes General Manager. Josh Bynes Cardinals Jersey .C. -- Ryan Sproul scored the winner late in double overtime to lift the Grand Rapids Griffins to a 2-1 win over the Abbotsford Heat on Friday in Game 1 of their American Hockey League playoff series. Justin Pugh Cardinals Jersey .

Simmerling won her first heat Sunday and was second in her quarter- and semifinals to advance to the big final. "It was good today. I had to fight hard and it all came together," Simmerling said.

    • GLENDALE, Ariz. Chad Henne Jersey . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. On Sunday, in the blur of an 80-yard touchdown run, he showed them what they missed. The sixth-round draft pick from Clemson, starting because Rashard Mendenhall was out with an injured toe, rushed for 154 yards on 15 carries and the Arizona Cardinals intercepted four of Matt Ryans passes in a 27-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Ellingtons big run, tied for third-longest in Cardinals history, was part of a 21-point second quarter that put Arizona (4-4) in control for good. "I was able to have a little speed burst out there," he said. Blocks from wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd cleared the way. "And with his speed, no ones going to catch him," Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. Fitzgerald caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown, in the process becoming the youngest player -- at 30 years, 57 days -- in NFL history to reach 800 career receptions. Ryan had thrown three interceptions total in the first six games of the season for the Falcons (2-5). Rashad Johnson had two of Arizonas interceptions. "I think we definitely had him confused," said Cardinals rookie Tyrann Mathieu, who had one of the interceptions. "Watching film, he has a tendency when he gets pressure to just throw the ball up there." The Cardinals picked off Ryan five times when the teams played last season. The Falcons were without wide receiver Roddy White for the second week in a row with ankle and hamstring issues. Atlanta also didnt have starting left tackle Sam Baker with a knee injury. Arians traced his teams performance to Mondays practice, an extra workout that followed a Thursday night loss to Seattle. "This game was won on Monday when I asked the team to come out in pads and we had a training camp practice," he said. "A lot of teams would balk at that, but our leadership and our veterans, we had the best practice we had all year and it set the tempo for this game and I think set the tempo for the rest of the season." After throwing his 14th interception of the season, Carson Palmer had two TD passes, 10 yards to Fitzgerald and 15 yards to Floyd. Steven Jackson, back for the first time since being sidelined with a hamstring injury in Week 2, managed just 6 yards on 11 carries. In all, the Cardinals gained 201 yards on the ground to Atlantas 27. With no running game, it was up to Ryan, who completed 34 of a season-high 61 attempts for 301 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked four times. Harry Douglas had 12 catches for 121 yards. Asante Samuels 51st career interception set up Matt Bryants 24-yard field goal that put Atlanta up 3-0. The Cardinals took the kickoff and Palmer threw 51 yards to Teddy Williams, a speedster who had signed with Arizona on Tuesday. Williams, who didnt play college football, played in seven games for Indianapolis last season on special teams and as a defensive back. That set up Palmers 10-yard TD pass to Fitzgerald on the first play of the second quarter and Arizona led 7-3. Atlanta used up 7:17 on a 15-play drive but had to settle for Bryants 30-yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-6. The Falcons inability to get to the end zone on those two drives proved costly. "Those things come back to haunt you," Ryan said, "and they certainly came back to haunt us today." On the first play after Atlantas second field goal, Ellington followed blockers through the left side of the line, then burst outside and raced the length of the field for the touchdown, putting Arizona up 14-6 with 7:25 left in the half. "We had an opportunity to hit the guy in the backfield, and then it popped out," Atlanta coach Larry Smith said. "Once we lost leverage, we werent going to catch that guy. We said that he was going to be a potential game-wrecker going into this ball game." Atlanta went three-and-out on its next possession, and the Cardinals moved downfield again. Palmer threw 20 yards to Fitzgerald and Desmond Trufant was called for a facemask, moving the ball to the 35. Stepfan Taylor broke a pair of tackles on a 15-yard run to the 17. Two plays later, Palmer threw 15 yards to Floyd for the touchdown and Arizona led 21-6 with 1:52 left in the half. Arizona led 27-6 before Ryans 4-yard touchdown pass to Drew Davis with 4:37 left. Notes: In Cardinals history, the only runs longer than Ellingtons 80-yarder were 83 yards by John David Crow in 1958 and Elmer Angsman in 1949. ... A black cat ran across the field just before kickoff. During the national anthem, security personnel corralled the cat and a guard carefully carried it off the field. ... Ex-Falcon John Abraham, who had a sack, left the game in the second half after a blow to the head but said after the game he thought he was all right. ... The previous youngest player to reach 800 catches was Jason Witten at 30 years, 238 days. Kendall Fuller Chiefs Jersey.C., has been named Canadas top female official, winning the 2014 SOC Award of Excellence.

Rasmussen didnt have a decision during his four appearances in May, when he gave up two hits and no runs in two innings. Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win. DOVER, Del. -- His chase for a Cup championship all but over, Joey Logano turned his pursuit toward Dover history. Logano dominated at Dover International Speedway once more and took the checkered flag in the tracks Nationwide Series race for the fourth straight time. Logano became the first driver to win four straight races at Dover in NASCARs second-tier series. He pulled away in the No. 22 Ford down the stretch Saturday and was never seriously challenged for the win on the mile track. "Its been my favourite race track ever since I started here," he said. With good reason. Logano has swept the two Dover races the last two seasons. Loganos Ford, however, flunked post-race inspection because both sides off the front were too low. NASCAR will announce penalties later. Logano, who started on the pole and led 106 laps, won for the third time this season. Four drivers have won 11 times in the No. 22 Ford, all with crew chief Jeremy Bullins. Brad Keselowski, AJ Allmendinger and Ryan Blaney have all won in the No. 22. "There were a lot of streaks to be kept alive today and we managed to pull that off," Bullins said. Kyle Larson was second, followed by Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers and Elliott Sadler. Sam Hornish Jr. was 17th and had his points lead shrink to four over Austin Dillon with five races left "If we could have lived up to our potential today, I would feel a lot better about it," Hornish said. "We go to some tracks that I really like. Theres not a place that I dont like that were going to go, so Im really excited about what weve got." For all his Saturday success, Logano has yet to transfer those regular wins to the Sprint Cup series. He has had only one top-five finish in nine career Cup starts at Dover. He blamed a string of bad luck that derailed his Dover Cup races. Derrick Nnadi Chiefs Jersey. "Ive had a lot of fast race cars here there were capable of running top fives," he said. "Ive had loose wheels, Ive had a flat tire, Ive had motors blowing up. Ive gone through a lot at this race track." Logano made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field in his first season at Penske Racing, though it came with a dash of controversy because of the Richmond scandal. His team was placed on probation after radio traffic appeared to show Front Row Racings crew chief and spotter talking about David Gilliland giving Logano a pivotal spot on the track in exchange for something unidentified from Penske Racing. He blew an engine in the first Chase race and finished 37th. He was 14th last week at New Hampshire and is buried in 12th in the standings. "Were not out of it yet," Logano said. "We can still win it. Weve got a tough road ahead of us. We really cant have a bad race in the next eight." Logano would find some solace in helping Roger Penske win the Nationwide owners championship. "I would love to be on the list of guys to help him do that," Logano said. Cup drivers led the way at Dover, but Larson again showed why he could be a force in years to come. Owner Chip Ganassi will promote the 21-year-old Larson to the Cup Series in his flagship No. 42 Chevrolet. Larson is among a new wave of young drivers considered to be the future of NASCAR. He had a few hundred reasons to feel good about his Dover trip. Larson was legal to gamble in the tracks adjacent casino and won more than $600 dollars on Friday night. NASCAR said an unidentified crew member on Morgan Shepherds team was hospitalized after the race. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

    • FRANKFURT, Germany -- Hamburger SV rallied to beat Hannover 3-1 on Sunday and plunge its northern Bundesliga rival deeper into crisis. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Diego-Godin-Jersey/ . In the late match, Shinji Okazaki scored two goals to pace Mainz to a 3-2 victory at Werder Bremen. Goals from Milan Badelj, Maximilian Beister and Hakan Calhanoglu ended Hamburgs two-match losing run and kept Hannover winless in seven games. Szabolcs Huszti had put the visitors ahead in the 28th but Hamburg fought back and quickly established control after Badeljs equalizer three minutes later. Hannover finished with 10 men following Salif Sanes second yellow card in stoppage time. The win helped Hamburg climb up to 11th, leading Werder on goal difference. Hamburg is one point and two places above Hannover, which is three points from the relegation zone. "We all have to understand finally that we are in a dangerous situation," Hannover goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler said. "We dont have to play beautifully but we have to get some points." Hannover got off to a promising start when Huszti punished mistakes by Hamburgs goalkeeper Rene Adler and Tomas Rincon. Adler kicked the ball to Rincon, who was surrounded by three Hannover players and could not control it. Huszti took advantage to steal the ball and slot past Adler. Badelj replied quickly. Zieler punched a free kick from Calhanoglu outside the box, but Badelj fired a perfectly timed volley over the goalkeeper into the net. Beister put the home side ahead for good less than a minute into the second half with a diving header from Heiko Westermanns long cross. "We fought back well and deserved to win," Beister said. Beister turned provider for Calhanoglus goal in the 84th. Mainz profited from two bizarre mistakes by Werder goalkeeper Sebastian Mielitz early in the match. Mielitz came out far away from his goal in the seventh minute but did not go for Sebastian Polters long ball which Nicolai Mueller looped over the keeper into the net. Ten minutes later, Mielitz misjudged a high ball from Zdenek Pospech, let it bounce off the crossbar and Okazaki pounced to score from close range. Okazakis clinical finishing from a counterattack made it 3-0 in the 70th, before Eljero Elia and Franco Di Santo scored in the last five minutes to make the finish interesting. Bremen fell to its second straight loss, while Mainz won its second straight. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Koke-Jersey/ . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Jan-Oblak-Jersey/ .

I love big projects, he said. No kidding. At the 2013 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, I met Eric Tulsky, who presented research on the value of controlled zone entries (short answer: about twice as valuable to enter with control of the puck rather than dumping it in) and Sznajder had charted a couple hundred games that were included in that study.WINDSOR, Ont. -- Meaghan Benfeito of Montreal and Roseline Filion of Laval, Que., earned their first gold medal on the FINA World Series diving circuit Friday in womens 10-metre tower. Benfeito and Filion, the Olympic bronze medallists and currently ranked second in the world, totalled 330.75 points. Sarah Barrow and Tonia Couch of Britain followed for silver at 311.10 and Emily Boyd and Lara Tarvit of Australia were third at 308.58. "Its really incredible to win an international gold medal at home," said Benfeito. "Its something we dont experience very often. Everything we worked on in practice showed in our performance today. Its very motivating for our big events coming up this summer. We know what we need to improve and we are going to focus on that." Xiaohui Huang and Jie Lian of China withdrew after their first dive due to an injury. "They are a team that generally scores in the 330 point area so we are pleased to be around that score as well," said Benfeito. "It shows we are closing in on the Chinese." Jennifer Abel of Laval and Pamela Ware of Beloeil, Que., meanwhile came within 0.15 points of a powerful Chinese pair in a thrilling three-metre synchro final for the silver. It went down tto the final dive. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Juanfran-Jersey/. Han Wang and He Zi of China took the gold at 326.40, Abel and Ware followed with a personal best 326.25 and Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape of Italy were third at 308.10. "Every dive went very well and we feel great to get a points record," said Ware in her second-year diving with Abel, an Olympic medallist in 2012. "Weve never been this close to a top Chinese team before." Zi won the Olympic gold medal on three-metre synchro with Wu Minxia in 2012 and Wang was a double medallist at last years world championships. The Chinese led after the first three rounds but the Canadians pulled ahead in the fourth when they nailed their forward two and half, the most difficult on their list, for 8.5s and 9.0s to pull ahead and set up a dramatic finish. "I was glad to do that dive well when it counted," said Ware. "Its been very stable for Jen but I had been inconsistent in practice." Yue Lin and Yuan Cao of China won both the mens three-metre and 10-metre synchro events. No Canadians were entered. Competition continues through to Sunday at the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre.

    • London, England (SportsNetwork. Discount Air VaporMax Shoes .com) - Arsenal revealed Thursday that midfielder Mikel Arteta and defender Mathieu Debuchy sustained injuries and will miss three months of action. Arteta, 32, last featured in Arsenals Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund on Nov. 26 when was forced out of the match due to a calf injury, but the Spaniard has undergone ankle surgery for a separate ailment and is expected to be in recovery for three months. Debuchy will miss approximately the same amount of time after undergoing shoulder surgery for an injury sustained in Arsenals defeat of Stoke City on Sunday. Wholesale Air VaporMax . RAPTORS STRUGGLING: The bottom line is the true test in sports isnt just how you handle failure, but how you handle success. Air VaporMax From China . However, it wasnt a problem on Monday night. Evgeni Nabokov made 23 saves for his 56th career shutout in the New York Islanders 3-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night.PINEHURST, N.C. -- The number on the scorecard was the same as Thursday but Graham DeLaet definitely felt as if he played much better at the U.S. Open on Friday than a day earlier. The Canadian, who used 75 strokes to get around Pinehurst No. 2, took 14 of those on just two holes, recording a triple and a double bogey. He also added a penalty shot on a morning that simply didnt go his way. Even with all that adventure and some visits to the newly added native areas, he walked off the course feeling not too badly about his play. "Im not even really disappointed because I felt I was in total control of my game all day," he said. "Three balls in that natural rough and twice I couldnt get a club on it and I made a triple and a double and the other time I went to move some debris next to my ball and my ball moved and that cost me a stroke. Other than that I played well all day." Thats the U.S. Open. So hard to make birdies, so easy to make doubles. DeLaet started his day on the right note, making his first birdie of the competition on the third hole. He cancelled that out with a bogey at six, when his approach shot came up short of the putting surface and he wasnt able to get up and down. On the eighth, however, disaster struck. DeLaets tee shot sailed left and ended up in a troubled lie against some wiregrass. His second to the green also went left and ended up in another almost impossible lie. He hacked it out and the ball ended up behind a tree, so he took an unplayable then chipped it over the green. He lobbed his next shot to 20 feet and, of coursse, dropped the putt for a triple. Cheap Air VaporMax Free Shipping. Two holes later, another errant drive led to a double as he scrambled around the green, and a hole after that, he incurred the penalty. "I guess its a little disappointing," said DeLaet. "Coming in, I didnt expect to miss the cut. But at the same time I feel like I played well and a lot better than my score but thats the U.S. Open and Im packing." This was DeLaets first time teeing it up in the American championship and the learning curve is steep. Its also the third straight major in which hes failed to make it to the weekend, something thats frustrating for 32-year-old. "I feel like my game should be suited for tough golf courses," he stated, "but my record hasnt shown that quite yet. "Theres a lot more to [the Majors] than golfing your ball. There are all the outside distractions and the mental pressure and everything that goes along with a major championship. Now Ive got my feet wet in all four and Im looking forward to the next one." DeLaet is planning to play the next two events on the PGA Tour as well as the RBC Canada Cup, a special outing in Halifax as part of the new Web.com Tour event there. Hell then take two weeks off before playing a long stretch of what could be eight tournaments in nine weeks, including the RBC Canadian Open. The schedule will be busy, DeLaet said, but it isnt as if hes moving pianos. "Im playing professional golf and going to a lot of cool places," he said.

    • RALEIGH, N. Cheap Air Max 270 Green .C. -- The Detroit Red Wings dominated the game but had little to show for it -- until they rallied for the win. Stephen Weiss scored at 3:13 of overtime and the Red Wings came back from two goals down in the third period to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Friday night. Henrik Zetterberg tied it with a goal with 16.4 seconds left in the third, after Justin Abdelkader started the rally by scoring in the first minute of the period. "Got one early, got one late and were able to get one in overtime," Weiss said. Jimmy Howard stopped 23 shots for the Red Wings -- who never led until Weiss game-ending goal despite outshooting Carolina 38-25 and earning a victory in their first road game since moving to the Eastern Conference. "We liked our first period. ... We just said, Stay patient and stick with the plan," Weiss said. "We needed to get one early (in the third), which we did, and that was huge." Radek Dvorak and Nathan Gerbe scored in their debuts with Carolina, which led 2-0 in the third, but lost its opener for the fourth time in five seasons. Justin Faulk added two assists and Cam Ward made 35 saves for the Hurricanes. "Effort-wise, I thought everyone came hard tonight to play," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "We pushed. Detroit forces you to skate. We said before the game, We cant have a letup, guys. Theyre not going to stop." They certainly didnt. Zetterberg sent it into overtime when he pushed a loose puck past Ward after a scramble in front of the net. Ward lost his stick while stopping a shot from Daniel Alfredsson a moment earlier. "Obviously, thats the way you want to go into overtime," Zetterberg said. "You want to be the team that ties the game up." Weiss -- a perennial nemesis for Carolina who spent 11 seasons with former Southeast Division rival Florida before signing with Detroit in the off-season -- then ended it when he stuffed a loose puck past Ward. "I followed up and it squirted out to me, and I was able to get a stick on it," Weiss said. Zetterberg also had an assist for the unbeaten Red Wings, who couldnt get anything past Ward until Abdelkader finally solved him 42 seconds into the third. "We knew we wanted to try to get that first one to get things going," Abdelkader said. "I think after we got that, we started getting some more chances, we really came on and obviously, that was a huge goal at the end." Detroit shifted from the Western Conference to the East as part of the NHLs realignment, which also moved the Hurricanes into the new Metropolitan Division. The Southeast was dissolved. Dvorak and Gerbe were two of five players skating for the first time in Carolina red. Dvorak, a veteran forward who came to Carolinas preseason camp on a tryout basis, earned a one-year contract Wednesday while Gerbe signed a one-year free-agent deal in late July after playing parts of the past five seasons with Buffalo. Dvorak put the Hurricanes up 1-0 with 6:30 left in the first, chipping Jeff Skinners long cross-ice pass over Howards shoulder. Gerbe then struck with 1:49 left in the second, in the final seconds of a holding penalty on Brendan Smith. Gerbe positioned himself near the net, scooped up a deflected shot and whipped it past Howard to put Carolina up 2-0. "There was no panic in the room," Weiss said. NOTES: Carolina RW Alexander Semin and Detroits Zetterberg each rang the post. ... Faulk wore an "A" on his sweater because regular alternate captain, D Tim Gleason, was out with a concussion. ... This was the first meeting between the teams since March 24, 2012. They play twice more this season.Cheap Air Max 270 Orange . -- Jonas Hiller is cautiously confident he has kicked his vertigo. Air Max 270 Flyknit Colorways . He made the comment at a media availability Saturday prior to Game 2 of the Boston-Montreal playoff series when a Quebec reporter said there is sentiment in Quebec that the NHL looks more favourably on Seattle than Quebec City when it comes to future expansion.CLEVELAND -- Indians manager Terry Francona gave his team a pep talk Saturday after they lost for the seventh time in nine games. Cleveland responded Sunday, rewarding Francona with a 6-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. David Murphy hit a three-run double in the sixth inning and John Axford worked out of bases-loaded jam in the ninth as the Indians avoided a series sweep and broke a three-game losing streak. The Indians won 92 games and made the playoffs as wild-card team last season by getting contributions from as many areas as possible. That formula, which had been missing for much of the early season, was a key element against the Blue Jays. "Thats probably the best way we are as a team," Francona said. "Thats the way were built, get it across the board." Francona didnt want his players dwelling on their 7-10 start going into Sunday. "Nobody likes coming to the ballpark and look at your record when its not what you want it to be," he said. "Thats plain and simple. Saying that, I dont want them dragging in here, because its a new day. During a baseball season theres a lot of grinding that needs to be done. Sometimes the games easier than it is (at other times). Thats simple fact. So when its not going perfect, you grind the best you can." "Hopefully, this is exactly what we need to get on a roll," Murphy said. "We havent been playing terrible, but we havent been playing characteristic of ourselves." Cleveland entered the sixth trailing 4-2, but reliever Aaron Loup (1-1) walked the bases loaded before Murphy delivered a line drive past third base that kicked off the stands and caromed into shallow left field, allowing all three runners to score. Axford, the fourth Cleveland reliever, loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth before retiring Edwin Encarnacion on a groundout. Josh Outman (3-0) recorded the final out of the sixth and Clevelands bullpen pitched 3 1-3 innings of scoreless relief. Michael Brantley hit a solo homer in the second and added an RBI double in the fourth. Toronto scored threee times on four hits in the fourth. Cheap Air Max 270 Red. Jose Bautista and Juan Francisco had RBI singles while Brett Lawrire added a run-scoring groundout. Brandon Morrow allowed three runs and was pulled after Nick Swishers leadoff single in the sixth. Loup got Jason Kipnis on a fielders choice. After Kipnis was caught stealing, Loup walked Carlos Santana, Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera to fill the bases. Murphys liner past third bounced off the stands a few feet beyond the tarp and rolled into shallow left. By the time Melky Cabrera tracked it down, the runners had raced home and Cleveland had the lead. "Thats about as tough a lefty that Im going to face," Murphy said. "Fortunately, he gave me a good pitch to hit." "Walks hurt you," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. "These guys laid off it pretty good. And of course Murphy ends up getting the big hit there. We made a run at it late, it just didnt happen." Carlos Carrasco retired the first nine hitters, but Jose Reyes led off the fourth with a double. Melky Cabreras single sent Reyes to third before Bautistas single to right tied it. Franciscos single scored Cabrera and Lawries groundout made it 3-1. Reyes added an RBI single in the fifth. Carrasco hasnt recorded a victory in his last 16 starts. The right-handers last win as a starter came on June 29, 2011, against Arizona. His last victory came in a relief appearance on Aug. 20, 2011, against the Los Angeles Angels. Carrasco, who missed the 2012 season because of elbow surgery, is 0-11 with an 8.28 ERA since his last win as a starter. NOTES: Bautista has reached safely in all 19 games. ...

    • TORONTO – The absence of Jose Reyes from manager John Gibbons lineup is forcing the skipper to do some less than desirable juggling. Cheap Nike Air Max Tn Trainers . The star shortstops injury has been mitigated, somewhat, by the surprising offensive contribution of his replacement, Jonathan Diaz, but the bottom of the order remains subpar in an offence heavy division. Then theres the number two spot in the order, vacated by Melky Cabrera, whos moved into Reyes leadoff role. Colby Rasmus has occupied the bridge to Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion since Tuesday night in Tampa Bay. Hes off to a slow start this season with just two hits in 22 at-bats (.090), striking out at a 40 per cent clip (10 times in 25 plate appearances). The sample sizes are small and the Blue Jays believe Reyes will return on April 16, the day hes eligible to come off the disabled list, or soon after. Still, manager John Gibbons has considered something he did last year for part of the time Reyes was down, bumping up Bautista and Encarnacion in the lineup. "We thought about it," said Gibbons. "Right now we want to kind of split the lefties up as much as possible, as far apart as we can. Colbys had some success in that two-hole in the past. Right now, the way hes swinging its not ideal but, like I said, I think hes close." For his career, Rasmus has struck out in 24.2 per cent of his plate appearances. Thats not an ideal number for a top of the order guy and its why the Blue Jays, when healthy, dont use him there. "Hes going to strike out," said Gibbons. "Thats the kind of player he is. Hes going to have some strikeouts. But I think hes real close." "I dont ever like living with strikeouts," said hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who says he speaks to Rasmus daily. "I think theres a way to patch things up, patch up holes and get yourself into a position with a mindset and an approach to where it gives you a better chance to barrel it up and not be vulnerable in certain counts, certain pitches, certain locations." It may surprise you to learn Rasmus has played more games batting second, 239 times in his career, than in any other spot in the order. It isnt close, either. Hes hit fifth 138 times, his second-most frequent spot in the order. Rasmus former manager, Tony La Russa, often hit him second. Those two are linked for their infamous falling out, although that wasnt related to Rasmus spot in the lineup. Seitzer is working with him on an adjustment related to where Rasmus hands start when the pitcher comes set. Previously, Rasmus had been starting his hands away from his body, effectively out and over the plate. He now starts with his hands closer to his body. "Hes not comfortable with it because its new," said Seitzer. "He hit all winter and all spring and I kind of had to let him go with his thing, getting to know him and getting used to him and then seeing what happens once the season starts. Were working on making adjustments. Hes just got to get himself in good position to give himself the best chance." The hitting coach wants the player to see the adjustment through. "I dont care where guys start their hands as long as they get to their launch position in time, on time, every time. Thats the only chance you have to hit big league pitching," said Seitzer. HAPPS REHAB START J.A. Happ was scheduled to make a rehab start for the Single-A Dunedin Blue Jays on Saturday evening, weather permitting. Happ is on the disabled list, back dated to March 26 so hes eligible to return on April 10, with back inflammation thats plagued him since early in spring training. ROSTER MOVE The Blue Jays designated right-hander Jeremy Jeffress for assignment after Friday nights game. The intention was to recall Chad Jenkins from Triple-A Buffalo. In fact, the Bisons had issued a press release to that effect. Turns out Jenkins isnt eligible to join the Blue Jays until April 10 because, as a player optioned to the minor leagues, hes required to spend 10 regular season days in the minors. In Jenkins place is Marcus Walden, whose contract was purchased and the player added to the 40-man roster. Walden, a 25-year-old right-hander, was a ninth round selection of the Blue Jays in the 2007 draft. To be clear on the option rule: there is an exception to the 10-day window for players recalled due to injury. Erik Kratz is an example. He was recalled when J.A. Happ was placed on the disabled list. Cheap Air Max TN All Red . 1 Pete Sampras.
