HOUSTON -- Will Fuller had a tiebreaking 67-yard punt return for a touchdown and the Houston Texans earned a 27-20 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in their first game without J.J. Watt.It was the first time Houston (3-1) had played without its star defensive end since the 2010 season after Watt , who is out for the season after back surgery, had started 83 straight games since being drafted in 2011.Fuller also had 81 yards receiving and a touchdown.Tennessee (1-3) was driving with less than two minutes remaining, but Marcus Mariotas pass to former Texan Andre Johnson on fourth down was broken up to secure the victory.The Texans squandered an early 14-point lead and their offense was struggling in the second half when Fuller took the first return of his career for a touchdown to make it 27-20 late in the third quarter.Fuller, who ran a 4.32 40-yard dash at the combine, took the punt and quickly made a trio of Titans miss before outrunning everyone else down the sideline for the score.The 21st overall pick in this years draft was so far ahead of any defenders that he slowed down Usain Bolt-style near the 5-yard line and trotted into the end zone.It was Houstons first punt return for a touchdown since 2013 and hhe became the first player in franchise history to have a TD reception and a punt return for a score in the same game. Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey.

We ask some of Sky Sports Football League TV team to tell us their most memorable play-off final matches and moments. Simon Mignolet Jersey . In an exciting weekend of upcoming action, Hull and Sheffield Wednesday face off for a place in the Premier League in Saturdays Sky Bet Championship showdown, while the League One final pits Barnsley and Millwall on Sunday and Mondays League Two finale sees Plymouth take on AFC Wimbledon - you can watch all games live on Sky Sports.From Dean Windass volleying home for his hometown club Hull City to Clive Mendoncas unforgettable hat-trick for Charlton, there have been some iconic play-off final moments over the years. But what have been the highlights for our TV talent? Football League analyst Ian Holloway: QPR 1-0 Derby, 2014Apart from the ones I was directly involved with, Im going to pick QPRs victory over Derby. I lost a play-off final with QPR in 2003 and to see all the Rs fans that day heartbroken was tough, so it was a real thrill for me to see them get their day in the sun at Wembley.The game itself was a bit drab until Gary ONeil got sent-off for QPR and then Derby started to knock it around. It looked only a matter of time before they struck. However, football can produce incredible moments and Bobby Zamora scored a dramatic winner from what was probably QPRs first attack since they went down to 10 men. His first touch was sublime and his second was even better - hammering it into the top corner. I leapt off of my chair and screamed the house down as there was no way coming back from that. Highlights of the 2014 Championship play-off final between QPR and Derby County Sky Sports co-commentator Don Goodman: Blackpool 3-2 Cardiff, 2010Theres been many, many, amazing play-offs over the years. The 5-5 draw between Swindon and Sheffield United in the semi-finals last season was probably the best semi-final, but the most memorable final for me was Ian Holloways Blackpool final against Cardiff. It was the first final I covered where both teams went at it and played without fear, which was totally opposite to the first few finals I commentated on. They were all tense affairs but this one was different - it was a sensational occasion. Highlights of the 2010 play-off final between Blackpool and Cardiff as Ian Holloway led the Seasiders to the Premier League Sky Sports commentator Bill Leslie: Swansea 4-2 Reading, 2011Ian Holloways Blackpool had opened it all up a year earlier which was fantastic as wed seen a few very nervy 1-0 finals previously, where the team that were less entertaining had progressed. Swansea continued Blackpools theme in the final a year later with a style of football which was wonderful to watch.What will always stick with me from that game was the Swansea crowd singing Hymns of Arias with Scott Sinclair wheeling away celebrating his hat-trick - it was spine-tingling stuff. Weve had so many teams recently winning promotion that have been on the brink of extinction or financial oblivion. The story arcs that are involved with the Championship final are just tremendous. Highlights of the 2011 Championship play-off final as Brendan Rodgers Swansea beat Reading 4-2 at Wembley Sky Sports commentator Daniel Mann: Leyton Orient 2-2 Rotherham United (3-4 pens), 2013The one that springs to straight into my mind is Rotherhams win over Leyton Orient.It was the game where Steve Evans ran down the touchline celebrating - an act that needs no words!It was an unbelievable set of circumstances - Orient were 2-0 up at half-time and I remember saying on commentary: Dont you dare write Rotherham off.I genuinely felt the comeback was coming. Alex Revell - a former Orient player - led the charge. He scored one off the goalkeeper which was a bit fortuitous and then he took centre stage. He hit this ball - goodness knows how far out he was - and I almost dismissed it as very ambitious but it flew into the net. It was one of those moments that got me emotionally as you do really get into the game when youre telling the story. Ive been told the words I said on commentary were printed on t-shirts made by Rotherham fans.  Highlights of the League One play-off final from 2014 between Leyton Orient and Rotherham Whats your favourite play-off final?

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals have activated Kevin Siegrist from the 15-day disabled list, adding a left-handed reliever to the mix for the first series after the All-Star break.They havent ruled out adding top prospect Alex Reyes, whose hit 101 mph while striking out four in two innings starting for Team World in the Futures Game.General manager John Mozeliak said Friday that the 21-year-old Reyes, who is at Triple-A Memphis, will likely be a starter in the majors. The GM said its possible the Cardinals could add Reyes for bullpen help or as part of a six-man rotation, or even to provide a break for one of the other members of the rotation.Bullpen is a need for the team heading into the Aug. 1 trade deadline.At some point Reyes could come up here and work out of the bullpen or at some point we could decide to give him a start or two, Mozeliak said. I think we just want to be open-minded as we approach the next couple weeks.Mozeliak thought it might be more difficult to make deals this year because its tough to determine which spot would benefit from an upgrade.I think it might be a little bit harder than some years where its just very glaring what we need to do, the GM said.The Cardinals will be without All-Star Matt Carpenter, one of the top leadoff men in the majors, for about a month with a strained right oblique. Jordan Lukaku Jersey. First baseman-outfielder Brandon Moss (sprained ankle) is still wearing a boot so hes likely not close to returning.Both Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny remained bullish on the Cardinals chances of contending for a playoff spot. They led the majors with 100 wins last year and have been to the postseason five consecutive years.You think I changed my mind at the All-Star break? Matheny joked. No, I wont back off what I think of this club and who we are. Nothings going to change my mind on that, and nothing should change their minds.Right-handed reliever Sam Tuivailala was optioned to Memphis.Siegrist, who turns 27 Wednesday, has been out since June 30 with mononucleosis. He was 5-2, tied for the National League lead in victories by a reliever.Siegrist had a 2.78 ERA and one save in 35 appearances covering 32 1/3 innings with 34 strikeouts.The 23-year-old Tuivailala played in three games from July 3-6, allowing three runs in two innings. Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
LAKE CHARLES, La. Custom Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys . -- James Tabary threw for 235 yards and one score and ran for another touchdown as McNeese State closed out the season with a 41-10 victory over Lamar on Saturday night to secure the Cowboys 12th straight winning season.Tabary, who already owns the school single-season records for most completions and pass attempts, finished just 33 yards short of the single-season record for passing yards. He totaled 3,036 for the year. Blake Prejean set the mark (3,068) in 1997.McNeese State (6-5, 5-4 Southland Conference) won this game last year 20-14 to complete the regular season undefeated.The Cowboys, leading 28-3 at the break, quickly got another score when Jermaine Antoine intercepted Adam Morse and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter.Four McNeese State players scored rushing touchdowns.Lamar (3-8, 3-6) was held to just 34 rushing yards. Morse led the Cardinals with 182 yards passing. Dan Fouts Jersey .

Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. AMES, Iowa -- It was hardly a coincidence that Iowa State senior point guard Monte Morris had one his most complete games Sunday.Morris notched the fifth triple-double in school history and No. 20 Iowa State throttled The Citadel 130-63, setting a program record for points in a game.Morris had 17 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and zero turnovers for Iowa State (3-0), which shot 60.5 percent from the floor. The Cyclones held the Bulldogs (2-2) -- who entered play averaging a national-best 112.2 points a game -- to just 22 in the first half.Iowa State raced ahead 18-3 and pushed its lead to 32 after just 14 minutes. Iowa State cracked 100 with 11 minutes left, and coach Steve Prohm was able to pull Morris from the game with 7:46 left to a standing ovation.I think it started on the defensive end, and my guys made shots. I just got the ball to them, said Morris, who grabbed all 10 of his rebounds on defense.Naz Mitrou-Long tied a career-high with 26 points and Matt Thomas had 18 for the Cyclones, who are beating their opponents by an average of 42 points.Iowa States previous record for points in a game came in 1978, when it beat Northeastern Illinois 129-69.No disrespect to the past three teams weve played, but we definitely felt very confident in winning those three, Mitrou-Long said.Quayson Williams had 15 for the Bulldogs, who were outscored in the paint 78-12.BIG PICTUREIowa State: The Cyclones looked a bit discombobulated at times offensively in a 73-55 win over Mount St. Marys on Monday. But The Citadels looser approach to defense allowed Iowa State to regain its rhythm in record-setting fashion. Seven different Cyclones had an assist in the first half, and Thomas drilled his fiirst four 3s in a game that was never in doubt for a Top 25 team. Spencer Pulley Jersey. I thought this was our most complete game on both ends of the floor, Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said.The Citadel: The Bulldogs ran into a team that plays like they do -- as fast as possible -- but has more talent. The Citadel was picked to finish last in the Southern Conference for a reason.POLL IMPLICATIONSIowa State might get a boost simply by taking care of the teams it was supposed to take care of. The real tests will start to come next week, with possible opponents such as Miami, Stanford and Gonzaga.THE NUMBERSIowa State out-rebounded the Bulldogs 63-33 and had 31 assists on 52 baskets. ...Eight different Cyclones scored in double digits. Darrell Bowie and Merrill Holden each had 13 points, Solomon Young had 12 and Donovan Jackson and Nick Weiler-Babb scored 10 points. Bowie added 10 rebounds. ...Thomas has made a 3-pointer in 28 straight games. ...The Citadel didnt score a single fast-break point despite their style of play.HE SAID ITIm not concerned about all that stuff, who starts at quarterback, who starts at (center) -- if you win. Are you playing starter minutes and quality minutes? Thats what Im concerned about. -- Prohm said when asked whether Bowie or Holden -- both senior graduate transfers -- had begun to emerge as his starting center.UP NEXTIowa State plays Indiana State on Thursday in the opening round of the Advocare Invitational in Orlando, Florida.The Citadel plays at Arizona State on Wednesday.---More AP college basketball at www.collegebasketball.ap.org Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap' ' '
Another day, another story about Ross Brawns imminent F1 return doing the rounds. Iago Aspas Jersey . But this particular version of the Brawn comeback epic comes with additional weight, as the source material is Brawn himself, via an interview with the Daily Telegraph.[Being nominated as a possible future sporting or technical chief] was nice to hear from Christian [Horner], Brawn told the British newspaper. Thats how I like to be involved in the sport.I would never go back to a team. I did everything I can in a team, but I would be repeating myself. For sure, trying to help F1 in the future become a better F1 would be appealing. It would be the one thing that could be interesting. If you ask me what F1 needs, it needs a plan; a three-year and a five-year plan. My view is we havent got the ideal for creating that plan and implementing it over time.Whether or not Brawn decides to make a return to the sport that made him his fortune remains to be seen. But what is particularly interesting to note is that Brawn is -- allegedly -- being considered for a technical role by the sports incoming owners, Liberty Media.As things currently stand, sporting and technical regulations -- and the associated oversight --- are the responsibility of the FIA, the regulators and rulemakers of Formula One (and of a host of other motor sports besides). The FIA have a small stake in the F1 operating company, but there has been no suggestion from the Federation that they are expecting to hand over any of their regulatory powers when the sport changes ownership over the coming months.In fact, the FIA has been beefing up its technical department in recent years. F1 technical delegate Jo Bauer boosted the size of his team in line with the regulatory changes seen in 2014, with new staffers assigned to ensure that fuel flows were within the mandated limits, while the additional number of components to be scrutineered once engines were replaced with multi-part power units also required extra pairs of hands to ensure that scrutineering could continue to take place in a timely fashion.The FIAs technical staff also includes specialist software analysts, who -- among other things -- ensure that the standard ECUs are operating within prescribed limits, and that any engine mapping is not found to be in contravention of the rules.Also on the technical side, the forthcoming departure of Herbie Blash and the eventual retirement of Charlie Whiting has seen the FIA actively recruit experienced technical staff to work in or alongside race control to ensure that future handovers of power happen as smoothly as possible.The first such handover will see FIA Safety Delegate Laurent Mekies -- formerly chief engineer at Scuderia Toro Rosso -- take over the role of F1 deputy race director from the retiring Blash at the end of this year.But if suggestions that Brawn is to return to the F1 paddock as some sort of technical lead under the new ownership prove to be correct, it implies a seismic change in the way that the sport will be structured looking forwards.In recent years, we have seen FOM control the commercial aspect of the sport, negotiating deals with incoming circuits, providing the world broadcasting feed (and thereby shaping the narrative of each season), and securing global sponsors for Formula One. The commercial rights holder has as much input as any other stakeholder when it comes to rubber-stamping incoming regulations, but at no point has FOM had -- or needed! -- a technical chief with Brawns level of expertise or experience.Liberty Media have made no attempt to disguise their aims to turn F1 into a leaner, meaner, more profitable beast, but so far the discussion has centred on a centralised and global marketing strategy, of embracing new markets and finding different ways of ensuring that Formula One remains a profitable investment for many years to come.That Ross Brawns potential return as tech chief is being made in association with Liberty, and not with the actual regulator of the sport, suggests that there is much more in Libertys philosophy than has been dreamt of in this paddock. Rodrigo Jersey .

PORTLAND, Ore. Thomas Vermaelen Jersey . -- Erik Spoelstra knows what its like to win NBA championships (twice) and what its like to miss the playoffs.While the Miami Heat arent in position to soon claim another NBA title, Spoelstra would like to think theyre heading in the right direction.Its been an up-and-down season, but I really like this group we have, said the ninth-year head coach, whose Heat are 7-12 but won two in a row heading into Saturday nights matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center. We have a lot of talented, exciting young players (with whom) were building and developing our Heat culture.We knew what we were getting into at the start the season (with the loss of Dwyane Wade). The record isnt what we want it to be, but that hasnt tempered the optimism or excitement about the group moving forward.Miami -- which is 5-4 in its last nine games after a 2-8 start -- ranks on the low end in the NBA in most offensive categories, including scoring (28th), field-goal percentage (27th), 3-point percentage (25th) and free-throw percentage (30th). The Heat are improving, though, averaging 107 points the past four games, including a 111-110 win at Utah on Thursday night.It has taken a little bit of time with the offense, Spoelstra told the Portland Tribune. The guys are getting more comfortable, more confident.Center Hassan Whiteside ranks among the top 10 in the league in rebounds (first, 15.1), blocked shots (third, 2.56) and field-goal percentage (.559, ninth) while averaging a team-high 17.7 points.Ive really enjoyed watching Hassan embrace the responsibility of being a great player, Spoelstra said. What hes learning now is the responsibility on all levels to impact winning. Thats with a commitment every single day to attention to detail, work ethic and mental approach that the entire locker room sees.The Trail Blazers offense was in high gear in a 131-109 victory over Indiana Wednesday night. But it was improved effort at the defensive end the players wanted to talk about.When we play well defensively -- when we fly around, have active hands, get deflections -- we can get out and run, said point guard Damian Lillard, who ranks sixth in the NBA in scoring with a 28.2-point average. It shows the kind of shots we can get and the kind of game we can play.Portland (10-10) reached a season high in points going up against an Indiana team that came in leading the league in steals (9.6) and opponents turnovers (16.9), was second in opponents 3-point percentage (.328) and third in blocked shots (6.2). Against the Blazers, the Pacers had three steals, forced seven turnovers, allowed the Blazers to shoot .375 from 3-point range and blocked four shots.

MONZA, Italy -- Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes starts are his main concern before Singapore after losing a shot at victory at the Italian Grand Prix due to a poor getaway off the line.Hamiltons dominant weekend fell apart at lights out, with a slow start from pole position relegating him to seventh at the end of the first lap. Although he eventually battled back to finish second, the poor start cost him what had looked like a good shot at victory.The reigning world champion struggled to explain what went wrong immediately after the race, suggesting it was an inconsistent clutch, but was able to give a more accurate description in his evening media session, which came after his debrief.Im told it wasnt a driver error, but it wasnt anyones error, Hamilton said. Youve seen it with Nico in Hockenheim and its bitten me quite a lot this year. I was told the procedure was just as I was supposed to do it but unfortunately we had an over-delivery of torque and the wheels were just spinning from the get-go.Asked if further improvements need to be made, Hamilton said: Of course, we never stop improving and learning. Today we would have learnt again but this year has been a harder year for us with the clutch. Its not a quick fix, not something we can change for the next race. We have made improvements and have made more consistent starts but we are still caught out by the random variation that we have from one weekend to another.We do practice starts all weekend and they are varying a little bit and then, every now and then, we get a random variation on the grid. Youve seen it with Nico and youve seen it with me, quite a few times, so we will continue to work on it. I assure you that on Tuesday thats all wee will be talking about because everything else we are doing really well. Steven Defour Jersey. I will be trying to give as much information to help the last seven races. We are not struggling with pole positions, its just getting off the line.In his own media session, team boss Toto Wolff disagreed that driver error played no part in the start but refused to single out anyone for blame.The reason we changed the rules last year was to give more responsbility to the driver and make it more variable. But its just what happens, you have good starts and bad starts, and I think our system has improved a lot. But obviously today machine and driver got it wrong.What we can see is that it is a procedural thing so I dont want to blame anybody. Neither Lewis, nor the engineers, nor the systems. I think we have to properly address that topic because it cost him a race and I think we all need to stick the heads together to avoid that for him and the team.When it was put to Wolff that surely someone must have been to blame as something went wrong during the procedure, he replied: No, completely wrong. We are never blaming anybody. This team, I would never believe anyone is to blame, not the driver, not the engineer, nobody.When you start to blame this is when it goes downhill because people will try to protect their arse and make sure they have a conservative system in place rather than putting the best development on the car. So nobody is to blame. In this particular case I think its a combination of many things, partly because we changed rules last year and why I dont want to go there. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

Second-placed Tottenham Hotspur entertain third-in-the-table Arsenal at White Hart Lane with the two city rivals separated by just three points ahead of kick-off.However, for only the fifth time in Premier League history, it is Spurs who head into a derby played after January 1 in front of Arsenal in the standings. And with both sides still within striking distance of surprise leaders Leicester City as we approach the seasons finale, this game takes on even greater significance according to the former Arsenal forward.I think the FA Cup semi-finals in 1991 and 1993 would be bigger, Merson told this weeks The Fantasy Football podcast. They were massive games, although they are always big. Paul Merson and his Arsenal team-mates celebrate their victory over Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley in 1993 When I used to be on holiday prior to the season, in pre-season before the fixtures came out in June, I would always ring my dad and say: When is the Tottenham game?

TFFC Podcast: March 3 Max & Merse predict the weekend Premier League games and there are One2Elevens by Monk and Redknapp You know, lets be honest, Tottenham have not been in the title race for a long time.

Tottenham have not been top of the league this side of Christmas since 1985, so that tells you everything.When I was playing for Arsenal, you were there not to like Spurs. It was the big ggame and you always got that feeling when you drove into the ground and felt the atmosphere, for both teams home and away. Cheap Hockey Hurricanes Jerseys. This is probably the biggest derby for many a year because both teams could win the league. Paul Merson Looking ahead to this weekends showdown, Merson - who played for Arsenal between 1985 and 1997 - thinks that with so much riding on the result, it will be a cagey affair in the capital.I do think that both teams will be too scared to lose and it will be a big win if either side wins, he said. At the moment Arsenal are chasing two teams down and you want to be chasing one, you do not want to be chasing two.However, whatever the outcome, Merson believes that the rise of Mauricio Pochettinos team this season can only be good for the Gunners in the long run. The two city rivals played out a 1-1 draw when they met at the Emirates in November I think it is great watching the way Spurs play at the moment and I think it is great for Arsenal as well, as it puts a lot of pressure on them, the board and everyone else as Tottenham are up there, he said.If they were not up there, then it would be like it does not matter, it is Arsenal again, but this time the pressure is on and fair play to them.Do you agree with Merse?

HOUSTON -- What was once a legitimate concern for the Rockets over how big a hole theyd find themselves in after opening the season with seven of eight games on the road turned into glee following their victory in San Antonio on Wednesday night. Kailer Yamamoto Jersey .With their 101-99 win, the Rockets (5-3) closed a five-game road swing that took them through Cleveland and New York, Atlanta, Washington D.C. and San Antonio with a 3-2 mark that seemed improbable given the amount of time needed to build chemistry under a new coach and with a largely reconfigured roster and rotation.Instead, the Rockets will host the Spurs on Saturday night at Toyota Center somewhat galvanized not only by their successful road trip, but by the gritty performance they showcased in outlasting San Antonio in the finale of their roadie.We know how good we are and we know how good we can be, said Rockets forward Ryan Anderson after the win. Its tough to win in this building. Theyre a team that obviously has some great players and to get a win in here, youve got to be happy.The Rockets continue to learn on the fly, having entrusted James Harden with the lead guard duties while also overcoming a rotation shortened by the loss of guard Patrick Beverley, who is slated to return from knee surgery later this month. Houston coach Mike DAntoni tweaked his lineup midway through the road trip, inserting swingman Corey Brewer aside Harden and shifting guard Eric Gordon to the bench in search of some offensive punch with the second unit.Harden has been sensational, averaging 30.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and a league-leading 13 assists. He leads the NBA in assist percentage (62.0), is fourth in usage rate (33.8 percent), and entered Friday third in player efficiency rating (32.3). Because the Rockets have relied so heavily on Harden to both score and facilitate, its no shock their offense collapses in those 10.4 minutes per game when he rests.Houston owns a 10.7 net rating in the 301 minutes Harden has played. Without Harden, the Rockets net rating is minus-28.5 over 83 minutes. When the second unit squandered an 11-point second-half lead against the Spurs, Harden was forced to reenter earlier than usual in the fourth quarter to stave off the San Antonio rally.We ask so much from him, DAntoni said of Harden.The Spurs (6-3) snapped a surprising three-game home losing skid with a 96-86 win over the Pistons on Friday night. When they opened the season with a 29-point drubbing of the Warriors on the road, it seemed like business as usual for the Spurs.But San Antonio has been undermined by backcourt injuries, with Tony Parker (knee) returning from a three-game hiatus one game after Danny Green (eye) made his season debut. Like Houston, the Spurs underwent roster upheaval during the offseason, and the result of those changes has been basketball not quite up to snuff.It could be a bunch of things but the bottom line is weve just got to get it done, said Spurs guard Patty Mills. And its not like we havent got it done before. Weve done it, we know how to do it, its a matter of going out and getting it done. We understand that its not going to be easy every night and it shouldnt be. Grant Fuhr Jersey . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. Ryan Strome Jersey .

In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. MIAMI -- On Friday night, San Diego Padres right-hander Jarred Cosart will get a chance to stick it to the Miami Marlins, the team that traded him on July 31.Cosart, who will step on the Marlins Park mound for the first time since July 25, will face Miami right-hander David Phelps (7-6, 2.28 ERA). Cosart is 0-1 with a 4.54 ERA.Im just trying to prepare like its another major league start, Cosart said. I get nervous before every major league start. Im sure I will have that same nervous excitement.Cosart said he is trying to build off what Ive been doing the past three starts, when he posted a 3.78 ERA and walked just four batters in 16 2/3 innings.Its been a battle for Cosart since his breakthrough year of 2014. He split his time that year between the Houston Astros and the Marlins, going 13-11 with a 3.69 ERA. However, he is just 2-6 since then.Phelps, meanwhile, has been outstanding all year, first as a set-up reliever and more recently as a starter after Miami suffered rotation injuries to Wei-Yin Chen, Colin Rea and Adam Conley. Rea, who was part of the seven-player trade that brought Cosart to San Diego, was returned to the Padres after he got hurt in his first start.With all that adversity, Phelps has come through, posting a 1.31 ERA in his first four starts. He has allowed hitters just a .192 batting average and a .550 OPS.The Marlins (66-61) need to win this series against a Padres team that is not in playoff contention with a lowly 53-74 record.MMiami may look to start newly acquired outfielder Jeff Francoeur this weekend. Ty Rattie Jersey. Francoeur, who was acquired in a trade with the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, arrived in Miami on Thursday and got an infield single as a pinch-hitter in his Marlins debut.Among his new teammates is Martin Prado, who played with him when they were with the Atlanta Braves.Ive played against the Marlins forever, Francoeur said. I do know some familiar faces. I have respect for a lot of these guys and (manager Don) Mattingly and his staff.Im excited. (The trade to a playoff contender) was something I needed. It was a tough year in Atlanta with all the rebuilding. Im excited to come here and get at-bats that mean something.In other story lines:--Both the Padres and Marlins were named on Thursday as two of the hosts of the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Marlins Park will get first-round games March 9-13. San Diegos Petco Park will get second-round games March 14-19.--San Diego center fielder and leadoff man Travis Jankowski has reached base in 23 consecutive games. Hitting .257, Jankowski had two hits and scored one run in his most recent game, a 6-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.--Marlins right fielder Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-4 on Thursday and needs one more hit to tie Wade Boggs (3,010 hits) for 27th place on the MLB career hit list. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
