CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzo finished celebrating, retreated to the clubhouse and reminded his Chicago Cubs teammates that theyve now won games in their last at-bat on a wild pitch, a squeeze bunt and a bases-loaded walk. Air Force 270 Outlet .Its been that kind of season.Rizzo drew a walk from Zach Duke with two outs in the 11th inning and the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 on Thursday night for their 10th consecutive win.Its one of those things where its going our way, Rizzo said. We just want it to keep going our way.Not only did the Cubs open a 13-game lead over the second-place Cardinals in the NL Central, St. Louis lost slugger Matt Holliday to a broken right thumb after he was hit by a pitch in the 10th inning.Holliday wasnt sure if hell miss the rest of the season. Hes to see a hand specialist Friday.For sure its super disappointing but its part of sport unfortunately, Holliday said.Pinch-hitters Willson Contreras and Jorge Soler led off with singles against the lefty Duke (2-1) and Dexter Fowler walked to load the bases with one out. Kris Bryant struck out before Rizzo took a 3-1 pitch inside to give the Cubs their longest winning streak since getting 12 straight in 2001.Crazy stuff, manager Joe Maddon said. Entertaining? Yes.Mike Montgomery (4-5) allowed a single and two walks to load the bases in the 11th before striking out Matt Carpenter to end the threat. Montgomery, who won his first game with Chicago after being acquired from Seattle last month, also hit Holliday with a 94 mph fastball on a 1-1 count with nobody on and two out an inning earlier.I definitely feel for him, Montgomery said. It wasnt on purpose. Its just one of those pitches thats a big part of the game, going inside, and it just got away.Randal Grichuk, called up from the minors before the game, tied it for St. Louis with a pinch-hit solo home run off Travis Wood in the seventh. Brandon Moss also homered for St. Louis.Chris Coghlan had a two-run single and David Ross an RBI bunt single in the sixth for the Cubs.Both managers used their closers in the ninth. Chicagos Aroldis Chapman needed three pitches to get two liners to third and a groundout, while Seung Hwan Oh struck out the side for St. Louis. Oh then worked out of a 10th-inning jam.The Cubs wasted three good opportunities to score before capitalizing in odd fashion, as has been their signature.After Coghlans two-out two-run single off Carlos Martinez tied it at 2, the 39-year-old Ross bunted an 0-1 curveball between the mound and third base. Martinez elected to throw to first, and it drew Carpenter off the bag as Jason Heyward scored to put Chicago ahead.Coghlan also teamed with Addison Russell to throw out Carpenter at the plate from left field on Stephen Piscottys double to end the seventh.Cubs lefty Jon Lester allowed two runs and five hits with six strikeouts in six innings but lost a chance at his 13th win when Grichuk sent a 1-0 cutter into the left-field bleachers.Moss hit his first homer off a lefty this season in the sixth to put the Cardinals up 2-0. Yadier Molina added three hits, including an RBI single in the first to extend his on-base streak to 24 games.Martinez allowed three runs and seven hits over six innings. He hurt himself when he cut off a throw home that seemingly had a chance to get Rizzo on Chicagos second run.The Cubs would have turned to starting pitcher John Lackey if the game had gone to the 12th. He was also in the bullpen when Lester beat Seattle with a 12th-inning squeeze bunt on July 31 that started the winning streak.Its just a sign of a good team, Lester said. The close game we grind out.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: A day after being scratched, 1B Matt Adams (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Grichuk was recalled from Triple-A Memphis.Cubs: Pedro Strop (knee surgery) will be out four to six weeks and Hector Rondon (triceps) was unavailable. Rondon played catch and is scheduled for a bullpen session Friday.UP NEXTCubs RHP Jake Arrieta (13-5, 2.59 ERA) faces RHP Adam Wainwright (9-6, 4.34) on Friday afternoon. Air Force 1 Online .

Garrett Gomez, who won nearly 4,000 horse races in a 25-year career that included 13 Breeders Cup victories and struggles with substance abuse, has died in southern Arizona, according to authorities. He was 44.Pascua Yaqui Tribe officials said Thursday that Gomez was found unconscious on the floor of a guest room at the Casino Del Sol Resort near Tucson on Wednesday and pronounced dead at the scene.Alfred Urbina, attorney general for the tribe, said foul play isnt suspected.An autopsy will be conducted but no determination on the cause of death is expected until results of toxicology tests are available in 4-6 weeks, said Dr. Gregory Hess, Pima Countys chief medical examiner.Gomez finished his career with 3,769 victories. He led the nation in purse earnings from 2006-09 and won Eclipse Awards as the countrys top jockey in 2007 and 2008.He struggled with substance abuse several times during his career, and had said he was having alcohol and personal problems when he rode his last race in 2013.Its shocking but not surprising, Ron Anderson, Gomezs former agent, told The Associated Press by phone from Puerto Rico. I was with Chris Antley for years too and it was kind of the same thing.Antley was found dead on the floor of his Pasadena, California, home in December 2000. He was 34. Authorities said he died of a multiple drug overdose and his injuries were likely related to a fall caused by the drugs.Known as Go-Go around the track, Gomez, despite his demons, was among the most professional and well-liked riders in the game, especially during his prime years.In 2007, Gomez won a record 76 stakes races.Gomez won 13 Breeders Cup races, most memorably the 2010 Classic, when he rode Blame and handed superstar mare Zenyatta her only career loss.He was just an amazing athlete and an amazing rider, Anderson said.He co-wrote a book about his life and substance struggles in 2012 called The Garrett Gomez Story: A Jockeys Journey Through Addiction & Salvatiion. Air Force 1 Off-White Outlet. The same struggles would return, however, and soon.In mid-2013, Gomez told California racing officials he was seeking treatment for alcoholism and dealing with personal problems. He rode only sparingly after that.I always knew he had a little bit of a dark side to him, Anderson said. He just had this aura to him that he wasnt happy no matter how well we were doing. I never thought he was in trouble in any way, shape or form.Gomez had been living primarily in his native Tucson for the past two years. Anderson said he had not had much contact with Gomez lately.He just kind of vanished, the agent said.Born on Jan. 1, 1972, to jockey Louie Gomez in Tucson, Gomez dropped out of high school and began his career in New Mexico at age 16 in 1988, and faced his father in at least four races.He moved to the Midwest in the 1990s and began winning major races when he relocated in the late 1990s to California, which would be his longtime home base and site of many of his biggest victories.Gomez never won a Triple Crown race. He finished second in the 2009 Kentucky Derby aboard Pioneerof the Nile and third in the 1994 Preakness Stakes with Concern.He last rode at Keeneland in Kentucky in October 2013, though he didnt make his retirement official until June 2015.I enjoyed every horse I ever rode and I thank all of them for making my career. Id like to apologize to all my fans for leaving the sport the way I did, Gomez wrote on his Facebook page when he announced his retirement. I thank everyone for all I achieved that had a part in my career. I had a lot of awesome moments in this game.He is survived by his second wife Pam and their children Amanda and Jared. He had children Collin and Shelby from his first marriage.---Associated Press Writers Paul Davenport and Walter Berry in Phoenix contributed to this report. ' ' ' 
Despite everything that Serena Williams has won and done, her sense of self can still fluctuate based on the outcome of a particular match. Dan Issel Jersey .Doesnt always seem to matter that she owns a record-tying 22 major singles titles heading into the U.S. Open, which begins Monday with a retractable roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium for the first time.Not necessarily a big deal to her that shes spent the past 3+ years entrenched at No. 1 and is the oldest woman ever to top the WTA rankings.And there are times when the 34-year-old American basically forgets that she transcends her sport and has become a cultural icon away from the tennis court.Williams is devastated when she is dealt a setback, such as last years Did that really happen?! loss to Roberta Vinci in the U.S. Open semifinals, ending an attention-grabbing, pressure-piling bid for the first calendar-year Grand Slam by anyone in more than a quarter-century. Williams acknowledges she measures herself constantly.Unfortunately, I definitely do, which I dont think is normal. I definitely feel like when I lose, I dont feel as good about myself, she said.But then I have to, like, remind myself that: `You are Serena Williams! You know? Like, `Are you kidding me? Williams continued, laughing and leaning forward. And its those moments that I have to just, like, come off and be like, `Serena, do you know what youve done? Who you are? What you continue to do, not only in tennis, (but also) off the court? Like, youre awesome. That really just shows the human side of me. Im not a robot.She is at the stage of her career where history is in the offing nearly every time a racket is in her right hand. So while the stakes are different from what they were at Flushing Meadows in 2015, Williams does have something significant to play for yet again.After equaling Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam titles in the professional era (which dates to 1968) by winning Wimbledon last month, Williams now can break that tie by earning No. 23 in New York. Only Margaret Court owns more major singles trophies, with 24, but more than half of that total came against amateur competition.Not that Williams was immediately ready to think about topping Graf after pulling even with her at the All England Club.One thing I learned about last year is to enjoy the moment, Williams said. Im definitely going to enjoy this.Good thing, too, because not everything has gone smoothly since that most recent triumph. Slowed by a bothersome right shoulder, Williams lost in the third round of singles and first round of doubles at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics -- she was a 2012 gold medalist in both events -- and then pulled out of a hard-court tuneup event in Ohio.Williams is assured of remaining at No. 1 until the end of the U.S. Open, which will bring her current streak to 186 weeks in a row, tying another mark held by Graf. Depending on what happens in the tournament, Williams could be overtaken in the rankings by No. 2 Angelique Kerber (who beat Williams in the Australian Open final in January), No. 3 Garbine Muguruza (who beat Williams in the French Open final in June) or No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska.Its definitely intriguing, Roger Federer said about tracking the women vying for No. 1. Its nice to see this race.Federer, who won five of his mens record 17 Grand Slam titles in New York, will be sitting out the U.S. Open for the first time since 1999 as he takes the rest of the season off to let his left knee heal. A year ago, Federer lost in the final at Flushing Meadows to Novak Djokovic. In Federers mind, the top-ranked Djokovic is the favorite this time, even though No. 2 Andy Murrays summer has been phenomenal.One reason: Federer thinks the installation of the new $150 million roof at the main arena will limit the wind even when its open, which will help Djokovic.Not too long ago, Djokovic appeared to be close to unbeatable no matter the surface or conditions, and a buzz was building about whether he could chase a true Grand Slam. But he exited Wimbledon in the third round, then the Olympics in the first round, while Murray won both of those titles.Novak, obviously, the last two years, really, has played amazing tennis. His consistency -- what Ive done for, like, the last four months, hes been doing for, like, the whole year, Murray said. So I need to try and keep that going, and the U.S. Open is always the next big goal.---AP Sports Writer Rachel Cohen contributed to this report.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at Vlatko Cancar Jersey .

SEATTLE -- Somewhere between the disappointment of losing in Carolina and the start of training camp, the Seattle Seahawks rediscovered themselves and what they hope will become their place back atop the NFC.This wasnt based around team building exercises or group gatherings as in the past. Starting individually and growing into a collective, the Seahawks believe the edge that made them the best team in the NFC for two straight seasons -- only to dip a year ago -- has returned.The maturation of our team, we know how to play and we know how to win, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson said.Throughout training camp the discussion around the Seahawks has centered on a return to the feeling heading into the 2013 season. That year, the Seahawks were coming off an NFC divisional playoff loss to Atlanta when a late comeback was thwarted, but only after a late-season run that put Seattle into the playoffs.And it was followed in 2013 by the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.That scenario played out in similar fashion last year: a late run to get into the postseason, a wild-card round road victory and a disappointing loss in the divisional round.So, Super Bowl?You can see the energy difference from last year, cornerback Richard Sherman said. You can see the guys moving different, theres more chemistry, theres more unity, theres more continuity as you say it. Our guys are just ready.Heres what to watch this season with the Seahawks:UP FRONT: Once again the offensive line is in the spotlight to begin the season. The Seahawks seem stable on the interior with Justin Britt moving to center, rookie Germain Ifedi at right guard and Mark Glowinski at left guard. Its on the edges where theres uncertainty. Bradley Sowell appears locked in at left tackle, and either JMarcus Webb or Garry Gilliam will start at right tackle. Its not an ideal situation, but if the preseason is an indication the Seahawks should be better off than the start of last season, when the line was at the root of their offensive problems.GROWTH POTENTIAL: Can Wilson match what he did the latter half of last season when he tore up the NFL at a record pace? The better question might be whether Seattle goes backk to more of a power run game or uses the quick passing that led to Wilsons rise the end of last season. Al Harrington Jersey. The answer is likely somewhere in the middle. Seattle always wants to be a run-first offense, but knows ways to be successful in the passing game without putting Wilson at undue risk of getting hit.STAYING ON TOP: For each of the past four seasons no defense in the NFL has been tougher to score on than Seattles. Its a run not seen in the NFL since the Cleveland Browns of the 1950s. If the Seahawks are to stay on top theyll need a pass-rush replacement for departed linebacker Bruce Irvin, and hope they can be better in the back end than a season ago. Seattle never fully overcame safety Kam Chancellors 2015 holdout, but with everyone healthy and in camp from the start, the Seahawks believe they can remain the standard for the league.You know whos around you and where theyre going to be and you trust them, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. The more years you play with them, the more years you trust them, and its exciting. I think were fortunate.BEAST MODE 2.0: No one is going to adequately replace Marshawn Lynch. The style and attitude he brought the Seahawks was unique and separate from the way he ran. But Seattle can replace his production on the field. Thomas Rawls is back from the broken ankle that ended his strong 2015 early. Christine Michael continues to show maturation and promise as a legitimate NFL running back after three seasons of underachievement. Couple those two with rookies C.J. Prosise and Alex Collins and Seattle has plenty of options to remain a run-first team.PAY THE MAN: Michael Bennett has made it known for more than a year he would like a reworked contract that pays him on par with comparable defensive linemen. Despite being unhappy with his deal, Bennett hasnt pouted when it comes to the field, remaining a disruptive presence lined up at both end and tackle. Another strong season will likely lead to a financial reward for Bennett.---AP NFL websites: and ' ' '

And with contract talks at a stalemate, the team has no indication when the two-time Pro Bowl safety plans to report. "Hopefully soon," general manager Doug Whaley said Saturday, a day before the Bills were set to hold their first practice in suburban Rochester. Whaley acknowledged thats essentially a guess because Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, havent informed the Bills of their intentions. "They havent said anything," Whaley said. Talks remain at a standstill, leaving Byrd a member of Buffalos roster in name only. The Bills prevented Byrd from testing free agency by retaining his rights in March. Thats when they designated him their franchise player by offering him a one-year, $6.9 million contract. Very little has happened since. Byrd has yet to sign the one-year contract, and the two sides failed to negotiate a long-term contract extension by a July 15 deadline. Under NFL rules, the Bills are now limited to reaching a one-year deal with Byrd. He missed all of the teams spring minicamps and is not required to attend training camp because hes unsigned. Parker declined to comment on the status of negotiations or Byrds plans in an email to The Associated Press. Whaley said "the lines of communication are open," but declined to say when the two sides last spoke. He added that he respects Byrd as a player and the position hes taken in refusing to accept the offer. "I think its a normal negotiation process. Weve worked hard. Theyve worked hard. And its just part of the business," Whaley said. "Hopefully, he comes in. And when he does, well welcome him with open arms." The Bills selected Byrd in the second round of the 2009 draft out of Oregon. He enjoyed a breakout season as a rookie, when he earned a Pro Bowl selection after finishing tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions -- a rookie franchise record. Byrd also set a team record that season by having an interception in five consecutive games. Last season, Byrd was the teams most consistent defender and was added to the Pro BBowl roster as an injury replacement. Cheap Stitched NFL Jerseys. Byrd led Buffalo with five interceptions and four forced fumbles, and finished fourth with 76 tackles. Overall, his 18 career interceptions are tied for third most among NFL players since 2009. His absence leaves a hole in the Bills defensive plans under new co-ordinator Mike Pettine. "That remains to be seen," Whaley said, referring to how much the defence might miss Byrd. "I think theres a lot of guys on the roster now that are going to step up to fill that role until he gets back. And then well go from there when he gets in. So its hard for me to predict that." Converted cornerback Aaron Williams spent much of the spring filling Byrds starting spot at free safety. Byrd is also behind in learning Pettines new defence, which emphasizes player versatility and a complex approach in pressuring quarterbacks from various positions. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore said he and several teammates have been in contact with Byrd and provided him details of the defence. Byrd will still have some catching up to do should he elect to report. Byrd has not commented publicly on his contract status this off-season, and has been careful not to divulge too much in notes posted on his Twitter account. On Monday, Byrd posted a note saying: "Itll be worth it in the end." Two weeks ago, Byrd posted a picture of him and mentor Aeneas Williams, the former star NFL defensive back. The caption under the photo said it was taken after a workout. In other news, the Bills released tight end Mickey Shuler and offensive lineman Chris Scott. The Bills claimed Shuler off waivers in May after he was released by the Oakland Raiders. He had also split time with Minnesota, Miami and Cincinnati since being selected by the Vikings in the seventh round of the 2010 draft. The Bills signed Scott off of Tennessees practice squad in December. He was initially selected by Pittsburgh in the fifth round of the 2010 draft. Whaley has no immediate intention to fill the spots on his roster. He said the openings leave room to add players without having to make cuts. ' ' '

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Of the three categories that Russell Westbrook is averaging double figures in, the one that most believed would be the hardest for him was rebounds. At just 6-foot-3 and playing point guard, it didnt seem possible in todays game that he could pile up the boards.Yet, entering Friday nights game against the Houston Rockets, Westbrook is averaging 10.9 rebounds per game. That puts him ninth in the NBA ahead of the likes of All-Star big men such as DeMarcus Cousins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love.When he defensive rebounds, it helps us, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. Anytime he defensive rebounds he is starting the break. That is obviously where he is very explosive. He is getting the ball earlier. His defensive rebounding to me pushes the pace and allows our guys to get out and run.Westbrooks rebounding has been key in putting a together a streak of six consecutive triple-doubles. Another one would tie him with Oscar Robertson (1961) and Michael Jordan (1989) for the second-longest streak in NBA history.As a team, the Thunder are third in the NBA in rebounding at 46.1. After Westbrook, center Steven Adams is next in line with a 7.7 average. Backup center Enes Kanter averages six boards a game.But one of the keys for not only Westbrook to flourish on the boards, but also the entire team, the players say they have no jealousy when Westbrook swoops in and snags a board while the big men are battling under the rim.No one cares. Wed rather it be him, Adams said. I like it because I can actually box out my dude. Its good that he gets to come in and take them.When Oklahoma City defeated Houston 105-103 last month, it was the Rockets who won the rebounding batttle 47-44. Air Max 270 Fake Kaufen. Westbrook was held to seven rebounds.In that same contest, the Rockets allowed a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter to slip away. Much of that was due to a horrendous shooting night from James Harden, who was 4 of 16 from the field.Since that loss, Houston has rang up a 9-2 record and is only three games behind the San Antonio Spurs in the Southwest Division. One of the wins was a double-overtime victory against the Golden State Warriors, who own the best record in the NBA.The Rockets are coming off a 134-95 trouncing of the Los Angeles Lakers. Guard Eric Gordon drained a career-best eight 3-pointers as the team continues to put up long distance shots with no conscience. They are first in the league at 37 attempts from 3-point range per game and have set an NBA record by making 10 or more 3-pointers in 21 consecutive games.Im just settling in on my role and my role is definitely to bring a different energy and scoring, playmaking with the second unit, Gordon told reporters. Im settling in and its getting better and better. Teammates look for me and its just up to me to knock down shots.Houston (15-7) is carrying a four-game winning streak while Oklahoma City (14-8) has won six in a row.Even though its been less than a month since the last time the Rockets were in the Chesapeake Energy Arena, Donovan says neither team is playing the same.I dont think it is so much that Houston has changed, Donovan said. Theyre evolving and getting better. I would hope that were doing the same thing. Were evolving, were getting better. Were improving. ' ' '

Sebastian Vettel does not think Ferrari needs to turn the world upside down after a disappointing British Grand Prix, saying the race simply did not suit the team.Vettel could only manage ninth position at Silverstone in a race which saw him spin out on several occasions. Ferrari had hoped to challenge Mercedes coming into the weekend but has lacked performance throughout and was out-qualified by both Red Bulls on Saturday.Vettel started 11th after serving a gearbox change penalty and admitted it was difficult to fight back through the field after his initial spins.It was not an easy race, Vettel said. For sure in these conditions its easy to get it wrong and make a mistake. I think you saw a lot of people going off track, unfortunately I was one that went off track and spun. So that lost us a lot of time but I think overall it was quite tricky with the conditions until the end with a dry line and wet patches here and there. So I think the fact that then I was stuck in traffic for some laps doesnt help with looking after tyres etc. So you lose the rhythm a little.As a result you can see we werent quick enough to challenge for a podium this weekend, so theres plenty of things for us to understand and learn. In this regard I think it has been a weak race for us but I dont think we need tto turn the world upside down. Air Force 1 Cheap Wholesale. We know the car that we have and I think if you look at the performance yesterday it was more or less in line. Again, its not the most competitive weekend for us, but for sure today we seemed to lose a little bit compared to the people ahead.Vettels ninth could have become tenth because of a five-second time penalty incurred after forcing Felipe Massa wide at Turn 2, though he managed to build a big enough gap to Daniil Kvyat to hold the position. Vettel felt the penalty was harsh.Not much to say. I was on the inside, he went a little bit wide at Turn 1, he was on the inside for Turn 3. We basically hit the brakes at the same time, I was trying to turn in and every time I tried to turn in I lost the car, lost the car, lost the car. So I had to open up and went wide myself.Obviously there was no intention to force him off the track because I was going off the track as well so it wasnt something that I controlled, but for some reason the stewards took the view that I did that on purpose and I got the penalty. But I think it was a racing incident.The incident also earned Vettel two penalty points on his superlicence. ' ' ' 
Malcolm Cannon, chief executive of Cricket Scotland, says that greater context in cricket, including a recently proposed 13-team ODI league, will enhance Scotlands competitiveness on the global stage. Air Force 1 Wholesale Cheap . He says that his administration remains focused on trying to secure more of their own fixtures in the event that the proposal does not gain ratification.I think all the proposals that have come from the ICC in terms of their contextualising cricket, their proposals around ODI leagues and even their proposals around multi-day cricket are still very much in the melting pot, Cannon told ESPNcricinfo in a recent interview. No decisions were made, lots of discussions were had and what I would say is that its all very positive noise. Its all very encouraging in terms of them recognising the need for change.As regards to Scotlands opportunity to become that 13th team on a proposed 13-nation ODI league, we would like to think that were in the vanguard, that were in with a very strong case and a strong opportunity but I dont think we can take anything for granted. Weve got to still continue to perform, to aim towards our qualification for various tournaments over the next few years as if this isnt going to happen and then hope that it does.Scotland wrapped up their rain-affected four-day Intercontinental Cup match against UAE on Friday and will play two WCL Championship ODIs on August 14 and 16 in Edinburgh. Apart from these fixtures, which were guaranteed as part of the I-Cup and WCL Championship calendar, Scotlands summer slate featured two ODIs last month against Afghanistan - their first home ODIs in more than two years - with two more ODIs in September against Hong Kong. Though the home ODI fixture list is more than they had in 2015, its still not ideal.Its difficult, Cannon said. If you look at our summer this year, weve got six days of one-day cricket and a four-day I-Cup on home soil and thats it. Is that enough? No. However, thats life. We need to accept that its life for this year and make sure that next year and the following years we have a fuller fixture list.In order to do that, we do need some cooperation from both the ICC, in terms of contextualising cricket, which is the dream, or with other nations recognising that Scotland are viable opposition and that we are credible and that we can compete on level terms with other nations, and then finding opportunities, because the Future Tours Programme has not many windows of opportunity. So we need to shoehorn ourselves into that in the future and then make sure that two, three, four years out, we are included in that fixture list because it is quite a long-term game.While Scotland used to receive visits in the past from Full Members touring England - Australia and Pakistan both played ODIs in Edinburgh in 2013 - that pipeline has dried up in recent years with that regional Full Member interest shifting towards Ireland. After two ODIs earlier this summer against Sri Lanka, Ireland has two more scheduled this month against Pakistan while they have already announced home fixtures next summer against New Zealand, Bangladesh and West Indies, and a maiden ODI tour of England.The last time Scotland played a Full Member at home was against England in 2014 and as of now nothing is on tap for 2017. Cannon points to Ireland and Afghanistans place on the ODI rankings table for 2019 World Cup qualification as a mitigating factor and says those two countries have merited their opportunities through good performances.I think we all recognise that Ireland and Afghanistan deserve their elevated status, Cannon said. They played very well two or three years ago and outplayed the rest of us. Wherever you draw a line in terms of additional funding, theres always those just below the line who will feel hard done by or feel they deserve recognition as well. I dont think thats what this is about and I think the ICC have some method behind their funding model at the moment which I think will be borne out in time. How long that method takes to come to fruition requires a high level of patience, especially for the players. The frustration has been evident for Scotlands players who are eager to test themselves and improve as well. Though Ireland and Afghanistan may deserve their opportunities, the fact that Scotland and three other ODI Associates are not part of the ODI rankings table is hampering their ability to negotiate for games with Full Members.I think theres a lot to be said that the elevation in status has exacerbated the problem, Cannon said. Preston [Mommsen]s quotes and press conferences in India were supported not only by the rest of the Scottish contingent but many other nations there. Its a frustration but its life. We need to make it work. We need to make sure that we do compete when we have the opportunity so that were seen… as viable opposition for anyone including Full Members.Regardless of whatever external opportunities may come forth from the ICC or elsewhere, Cannon says that the Scotland cricket community needs to focus on growing stronger from within. Specifically, he repeatedly spoke about raising the noise levels in Scottish cricket to get people excited about what does exist rather than dwell upon what is missing.Scotland is certainly ranked a lot higher and recognised as a greater force than I appreciated before I joined Cricket Scotland, says Cannon, who took up the role last September. I think thats been one of the biggest lessons is I dont believe that the Scottish public and in particular the Scottish sporting public, recognise how powerful Scottish cricket is. I think weve got 230 years of history. Weve got a great base in terms of our club structure and development pathways and I think weve got a right to perform on the world stage and weve got to accept these opportunities and make our name known not only on the world stage and with other international teams but in particular with our fans at home in Scotland.We need to recognise that this is a Scottish sport. Its as Scottish a sport as football is and we need to make sure that the Scottish public recognise that and get behind it. That means not only Scottish public but corporate Scotland as well and I think if we can become more self-sustaining, self-reliant, then I think thats another reason that our other funders - the Scottish government and the ICC - will look upon us favourably.Streamlining the administration of Cricket Scotland has been a key task in Cannons first year in the job. He says good governance is a pivotal factor in any groups ability to recruit and sustain both players to participate in development programmes as well as the sponsors to fund them, something that will be needed if Scotland are to achieve the organisations strategic target to be a top-12 ODI team in both mens and womens cricket by 2019. Part of that is ensuring Scotlands next success at an ICC tournament doesnt take as long as their maiden victory took - 21 games dating back to the 1999 World Cup - against Hong Kong at the ICC World T20 in March.I think weve had our days in the sun, 21 opportunities on the world stage for causing an upset if you like and never having taken one until this March in India, I think doesnt do us credit, Cannon said. We must make sure that the next win on a global stage is not another 21 games from now. Vans Shoes Wholesale . PETERSBURG, Fla.

Glenn Maxwell has compared the Indian batsmens approach unfavourably to the Australians when nearing a milestone, but Cricket Australia have been quick to do damage control. NMD China .It began after the third ODI in Melbourne with a question quoting Matthew Hayden from 10 years ago. Maxwell, who had scored a match-winning 96 in that match, was noncommittal in response but before the Sydney ODI, he eliminated the doubts around what he said.They were probably just making sure they got to a milestone, Maxwell had said in Melbourne. Some people are milestone-driven, some people arent. If it means that much to you, you go for it. But its not something that drives me too much. Each to their own.In Sydney though, Maxwell went from generic to specific. He told Wisden India: I knew it [the comment] was going to blow up. It didnt really bother me. I was sent a photo the other day, it said Virat was 84 off 63, and then 100 off 89 or something like that. He got his last 11 runs off 22 balls to get his hundred. I thought about that and I was like, Jeez, he did it so easily all the way up until then, and then you just lose a bit of momentum. I have been thinking about that.Then you look on the other hand, when you watch David Warner get into the 90s and he tries to hit Ishant Sharma for a slog sweep for six. Its just, to me, thats two complete different ends of the spectrum. And then you look at the scoreline and you see 4-0. And to me, Id much rather be 4-0 basically.Maxwell said his side didnt care about milestones. The way Boof [Darren Lehmann, the coach] has talked to us always has been: Take the game on, take the game on, take the game on. I dont care if youre on 90, I dont care if youre on zero, take the game on.Cricket Australia and BCCI enjoy a fruitful relationship under the new Big Three arrangement. CAs website was quick to do an interview with Maxwell to clarify his statements, but he didnt quite take them back.Maxwell would, however, tweet that they were taken out of context and said he was in awe of how Kohli almost single-handedly chased down 349 in Canberra.I was asked to give a bit of an assessment of who was dominating with the bat in this series, and I said, I dont think anyone in the world is hitting the ball better than Virat at the moment, Maxwell told point that I was making, and it related more to when India were setting totals and had plenty of wickets in hand, is that the scoring rate seemed to slow as milestones got close, which can sometimes be the case, especially when teams are batting first.Maintaining a constant scoring rate can be less straightforward batting first than when youre chasing and you know what the required rate has to be, and there have been times when batters just seem to have slowed a bit to make sure they reach those milestones. Sometimes that wins you games, and sometimes it doesnt but that was the only point I was trying to make. Ive got a really good relationship with Virat off the field, and Ive already had a chat with him.The clarification doesnt make it disappear that he compared the Indian batsmens efforts with that of Warner, who too, was setting a total and got out in the 90s trying to play a big shot.Steven Smith, Australias captain, said the slowing down near a milestone was natural. I think that can be natural for anyone around the world, Smith said. When you see that sort of milestone coming, in the back of your mind you might slow down a little bit. I think Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are quality players and theyre batting beautifully, and I dont see any problem with any selfishness there.Aaron Finch distanced himself from Maxwells comments. The talk of Indian players being selfish was obviously Glenns view; thats not my personal view, Finch said. Virat Kohli got a 100 off 80-odd balls the other day. There was nothing selfish about that innings. That was an extraordinary, extraordinary innings. Shikhar Dhawan got it off about 95 balls, I think. He took the game on at the start for India along with Rohit, and got them off to an absolute flyer. Gee, there are some seriously good players in India. Virat… 25 ODI hundreds now. Thats an unbelievable achievement.In the three ODIs that India batted first, they scored 67, 67 and 60 from overs 31 to 40. These have been the overs when their set batsmen have approached their hundreds. In Perth, Rohit took 24 balls from 83 at the start of the 31st over to reach his century. Similarly in Brisbane, between the 30th and the 40th overs, Rohit took 21 balls to move from 86 to 100. Virat Kohli took 15 balls to score the last 16 runs to his century between the 38th and 43rd overs in Melbourne.Team director Ravi Shastri, though, had defended his men before the Canberra ODI. If they were focusing on milestones, Virat Kohli wouldnt have been the fastest to 7000 runs; he would have taken another 100 games, Shastri said. If that was the case, Rohit Sharma would not be having two double hundreds, and a score of 264. NMD Online .

Here are some things to watch in the Atlantic Coast Conference for Week 11:GAME OF THE WEEK: Georgia Tech at No. 18 Virginia Tech. The Hokies (7-2, 5-1) can take another step toward their first ACC championship game berth since 2011 by beating a Yellow Jackets team that didnt do them any favoris last week in a loss to the other Coastal Division contender, No. 21 North Carolina. Virginia Tech -- which was just good enough to hold off Duke last week -- plays its final two league games in the friendly confines of Lane Stadium and knows it must be better against a Georgia Tech team that is one victory shy of bowl eligibility. It is hard to have a sense of relief when you are trying to get ready for Georgia Tech, Hokies coach Justin Fuentes said.BEST MATCHUP: Wake Forest defense vs. Lamar Jackson and the Louisville offense. The Demon Deacons defense has keyed their transformation into a bowl team, ranking second to Clemson in points allowed (18.4). But this represents their toughest test so far -- a matchup against Jackson, the Heisman Trophy front-runner who leads the league in six offensive stat categories, and a Cardinals offense that is putting up more than 50 points and nearly 600 total yards per game. It wont get any easier for Wake Forest -- which plays host to No. 3 Clemson next week. There is not a big margin of error when you play a team of this quality, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said.INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Only five of 14 ACC teams are over .500 in league play so far. NMD Store. The top two teams in each division have been mostly immune to upsets -- the only one of them to lose to a team further back in the standings is Virginia Tech, which lost to Syracuse. The two bottom teams in each division havent beaten anybody ahead of them except for N.C. State, which defeated Wake Forest in a game that hardly seemed like an upset at the time.UPSET WATCH: Maybe Virginia will find a way to cover the 10-point spread against a Miami team that just snapped a four-game losing streak. The Cavaliers, who were locked down by Wake Forests defense last week, will need more from QB Kurt Benkert, who threw for just 190 yards and was intercepted twice with one returned for the game-winning touchdown with less than 7 minutes to play. Complicating things further, the Hurricanes rank fifth in the league against the pass.IMPACT PLAYER: Look for N.C. State RB Matt Dayes to put up some big numbers against a leaky Syracuse defense. Dayes trails only Jackson and Florida States Dalvin Cook among ACC rushers, and is 169 yards shy of the 1,000-yard mark for the season. Defense has been a big problem for the Orange, who are 12th or worse in the league in all four major defensive stat categories.---Compiled by AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary in Raleigh, North Carolina.---OnlineMore AP college football: ' ' ' 
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In the wake of a 6-3 defeat in their home opener against the Boston Bruins on Thursday, Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella will keep his lineup and lines intact in order to instill some confidence in the second-youngest team in the NHL when they host the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Air Max Tn Black .Unlike in the past, Tortorella doesnt want to get the blender out if things arent going well. He said he would like to give them a chance to develop some chemistry and gel.Tortorella told the Blue Jackets website that one of the keys is to continue to encourage his players to make plays, saying he felt as though they were tentative and didnt make the plays that were available in the opener.The team will be without the services of defenseman Ryan Murray, out of the lineup with an undisclosed injury after blocking a shot in Thursday nights loss. This will be the first game Murray has missed after playing 85 consecutive games.Stepping in for the injured Murray is defenseman Dalton Prout, who was a healthy scratch for the home opener and the final two exhibition games.Ahead of Saturday nights matchup against the Sharks, forward Brandon Dubinsky said, My line, Ive got to play better, Ive got to make plays.

Couture and Donskoi also assisted on Brent Burns game-winning goal against the Kings.Despite having to travel across the country for their second game, the Sharks should be a well-rested team. No forward played more than Tomas Hertls 17:47, showing the even distribution of ice time.On the blue line, offseason free agent signing David Schlemko made his new coach happy with his play in his debut for the Sharks.I thought Schlemko was fantastic was tonight, head coach Peter DeBoer told That pair with (Brenden) Dillon and him looked really good.The 29-year-old Schlemko had one shot, a pair of hits and a blocked shot on Wednesday and is expected to play an important role on this San Jose team that expects to contend for the Stanley Cup.With DeBoer eschewing traditional forward lines, he feels confident in matching any of his four lines against the top lines of his opponents on a nightly basis.As a staff, DeBoer said to, we came in and we want to start that way and give everyone an opportunity (to play). I think we all realize that we play our best when were not chasing matchups or trying to hide guys.Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson announced Friday that the club has recalled forward Ryan Carpenter from the San Jose Barracuda (AHL), while forward Timo Meier has been assigned to the Barracuda.
