ISTANBUL, Turkey -- Portugal and Nigeria won their final Group B matches to reach the last 16 of the Under-20 World Cup on Thursday, while third-place South Korea still has a chance of advancing. Patrick Marleau Jersey . Spain and France had already advanced from Group A, and Spain won the group with a 2-1 win over the French. Captain Paco Alcacer and Jese scored before substitute Thibaut Vion found the net for France in injury time. The United States, which hasnt reached the knockout stages since 2007, finished last in the group after a 4-1 defeat by Ghana. Portugal striker Bruma scored his fourth and fifth goals of the event to help the two-time champions beat Cuba 5-0 and top the group, while Nigeria defeated South Korea 1-0 after an early goal by Olarenwaju Kayode and overtook the Asians for second place. Ricardo, Aladje and To Ze also found the net for Portugal, while Bruma almost added a sixth but hit the crossbar. It was Portugals biggest ever win in the competition, improving on 3-0 defeats of Argentina in 1991 and the Netherlands four years later. Portugal won the title in 1989 and 91 and finished runner-up to Brazil two years ago. Cuba, which lost all three games and became the first team to be eliminated, was making its debut appearance. Nigeria secured its victory after Kayode was left unmarked by the South Korean defence and headed home a free kick by captain Abdul Ajagun in the ninth minute. South Korea still has a chance to advance as one of the best four third-place teams. Ghana had more possession in the opening half hour but the U.S. was still able to create three scoring chances. However, a header and later a shot by Mario Rodriguez both lacked power, and a powerful 20-meter (yard) effort by Jose Villarreal brought a diving save from goalkeeper Eric Antwi. U.S. keeper Cody Cropper reacted quickly while lying on the ground to save a shot from six meters by Lawrence Lartey In the 35th minute. But Cropper had no chance shortly afterward, when several American defenders failed to clear the ball from the area and Frank Acheampong fired home a low shot. Another piece of weak defending allowed the unmarked Ebenezer Assifuah to curl the ball past Cropper in the 58th the minute. Shane ONeill pulled a goal back for the Americans from Oscar Sortos cross in the 69th, the U.S. wasnt able to stage a comeback. Assifuah scored his second of the game nine minutes later and Kennedy Ashia added Ghanas in the 83rd. It was the first defeat for the U.S. team against an African opponent since losing 2-0 to Egypt in 2001. The U.S. qualified for Turkey after finishing runner-up to Mexico in the CONCACAF Under-20 championship earlier this year. But it was drawn into what is widely regarded as the toughest group with two European powerhouses and Ghana, which won the title in 2009 and has never failed to qualify for the knockout stage in its five previous appearances. Justin Braun Sharks Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Martin Jones Jersey . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. http://www.hockeysharksshop.us/David-Schlemko-Jersey/ .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. RIO DE JANEIRO -- ?Team USA womens star Diana Taurasi was in the stands Wednesday night for the U.S. mens scare against Australia, and she is convinced the near-loss will benefit her male counterparts in their quest for gold.You know what? Taurasi said as both U.S. teams prepared to return to group play Friday. Those are the games that make you better in the long run.The men face Milos Teodosic-led Serbia on Friday night in a rematch of the 2014 FIBA World Cup final. The Mike Krzyzewski-coached Americans have won 71 games in a row internationally, including 48 in FIBA competition, but they trailed Australia by five points at halftime and didnt gain any meaningful separation until the final 30 seconds of an eventual 98-88 win.The U.S. women were watching in the crowd, just a few hours after a record-setting performance from Taurasi against Serbia stretched the ladies win streak to 35 games in official FIBA play.Its safe to say no team understands the pressure shouldered by the Team USA men better than Taurasi and her teammates, since both teams are not only expected to win every time they step onto the court, but win handily.We all have em in stretches, Taurasi said of the Australia scare. Its good that they had it early. You know they played a really good team. Australia has five [NBA] pros. They play hard. And it was all the European things that youre not used to. The calls. The flopping. The calls that in the NBA you get [but] you dont get in international play.Its just experience and you put it in the bank. And down the line theyre going to benefit from that.Taurasi added: We lost a game like that in Brazil 10 years ago where we didnt overcome that stuff and Russia beat us, and we got third place in the World Championship. Weve been in that place. Theirs happened in ppool play. Brent Burns Jersey. And they still got the win, so I think thatll help em down the line.The Americans needed a massive game from Carmelo Anthony to escape the stubborn Aussies. Anthony finished with 31 points -- including nine 3-pointers -- and combined with Kyrie Irving to score 26 of Team USAs 28 points in the fourth quarter. The U.S. defense also improved dramatically after surrendering an uncharacteristic 54 points in the first half.I think the best thing about it was, there was no panic meter, swingman Paul George?said. There was no one in the locker room nipping at each other. There was no thought of defeat.Said forward Draymond Green: I dont think there was any point that anyone felt we were gonna lose the game. But in saying that, were not saying, Oh, were invincible. ... I think it also gave us kind of a feel of what a medal-round game would be like.Friday marks the first Olympic meeting between the U.S. men and Serbia, which features only one NBA player: Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic. But Serbian center Miroslav Raduljica has played in the league, and guard Bogdan Bogdanovics rights were recently acquired by the Sacramento Kings in a draft-day trade with Phoenix.The Serbians (1-2) are coming off a one-point loss to France on a late Tony Parker basket, and they lost by 15 points to Australia after opening the Olympics with a 24-point rout of Venezuela. Team USA (3-0) won the teams last meeting in the World Cup by 37 points after falling into an early five-point deficit.As for the sky-high expectations of both USA Basketball teams, Taurasi said: Id rather be on this team than the other [team]. Thats a pressure that we relish.

In 2007-08, a young Pakistani paceman took 91 wickets in the season at 18. Derek Rivers Jersey . It was a record for Pakistani first-class record. And, in that same year, he took a 16-wicket haul in one match.Today he played his third Test.In 2008-09, a young Pakistani paceman took 56 wickets at 15. By the end of 2009 he had played six Tests.Sohail Khan was the man who took the 91 wickets - in two further seasons he had taken over 60. The 56-wicket man? Mohammad Amir. The chosen one. The prodigy.Khan played two Tests - the first of which, against Sri Lanka at Karachi in February 2009, was the last completed Test to have been played in Pakistan. He took 0 for 164 in the match, at more than six an over, on one of the flattest pitches ever produced. His next Test was against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo, in which Tatenda Taibu became his first and, for several years, only Test wicket, at a further cost of 81 runs.That was in September 2011. He has had to wait five years for another chance. The same amount of time for which Amir has been suspended.***The Hindu Kush mountains, among Pakistans most rugged locations, has started to produce more and more cricketers over the last few years. It is a world away from Lahore and Karachi, in weather and in life. And the players who come from there are often noticeably different.It isnt often that a bowler talks about a training program that includes swimming across rivers, rolling rocks down mountains and chopping wood, but that was a big part of Sohails life as a young man. He wasnt a gym-born cricketer, he was a mountain man. Later, he attended Rashid Latifs academy where he was trained in modern cricket coaching methods. There, his weightlifters wing muscles were brought back under control, and became a young bowler of note.Sometimes I bowl so fast that the ball sends the stumps flying before the batsman has even had a chance to bring his bat down, he once told PakPassion. And he was a regular in fast-bowling competitions. But despite the training, the pace, and that massive pair of woodchopping shoulders, he had to wait until he was 23 to make his first-class debut.When he did, he enjoyed it. I took three wickets in three overs, he said. I was bowling really fast and firing in bouncers, when one of my bouncers hit a guy on his helmet. The guy collapsed and passed out. After that I left the field and refused to continue bowling in case I hurt these guys.He was a tearaway, a bouncer or yorker bowler, bowling with a Shoaib Ahktar run-up and a Waqar Younis mentality. He was raw and fast, but he wasnt as rare, fast or special as Mohammad Amir.***Find a good length, keep the seam in the right position, swing the ball, and ensure that there arent many chances to score. Sohail wasnt reinventing modern bowling when he took the new ball for his Test comeback at Edgbaston.He wasnt bowling lightning bolts or unplayable jaffas, he hit the right areas, he hit them a lot, he did it with a technically sound action, with a lot of bowling knowledge, and with an outswinger that would cause anyone problems. He showed patience, he built pressure, and the conditions helped him.This wasnt the tearaway from the mountains, this was the professional first-class bowler, on top of his game, who had cut down on his pace after watching Jimmy Andersons success in English conditions. So this was someone bowling within himself as an intellectual move, not just a guy, at 32, slowing down with age.Sohail removed Alex Hales with a perfect new-ball outswinger. It couldnt have been more romantic if the ball actually kissed the outside edge. The ball to Root was almost as good, even if Root was partly to blame for the wicket himself. Sohail wasnt screaming like a loon who couldnt believe his luck, he was celebrating like a well-worn professional who had taken wickets like this in the shadows for years, and had now got a chance to do it in a Test match. He pulled much the same trick for Vinces outside edge.It was for Bairstows wicket, after extracting a bit of bounce out of the surface, that he showboated a bit and gave a comical head bob to show he was in control. Misbah had won the toss and bowled, Rahat Ali had one wicket, Sohail four at that point. He was in control. Amir had no wickets.***And yet, there he was at the top of his mark, looking confused. This strapping man, looking more like a Lollywood action hero than a Pakistani fast bowler. His run-up starts somewhere here, but instead of charging in, he looks down trying to remember where it should be.You can usually tell the difference between a bowler who is completely in control of his game, and one who is going to have a lot of good and bad days. It is in their run-up. And Sohails run-up seems to start from a different place almost every ball.But this isnt some special trick of shortening his run-up for effect. He can start from four different places in one over. At one stage he has three markers, and he seems to ignore all three of them. Another time he moves his marker to a random area, as if it was getting in his head. And regularly, no matter where he started to run in from, he would lose his run-up as he approached the crease.But even when he got it wrong, he somehow, against cricket logic, still got it right at the crease. It may not be perfect, or always correct, but he is a bowler, and you dont need to see his massive shoulders or huge frame to know that. He may forget his lines, but he knows bowling.***Top-class athletes dont often come back from long lay-offs and perform at the same level they were at before. Often they struggle, and disappear, like Ian Thorpe, Australias Thorpedo. Several female tennis players have managed it, as well as a few athletes, such as Justin Gatlin and Lance Armstrong, who may have had outside assistance. Many an old boxer, most notably George Foreman, have been lured back for some lesser glory. But it is hard enough to make it when you have spent your whole life working for it, it is harder still when you have missed out on a whole tranche of your development.Occasionally there are people like Dennis Lillee, who broke his back in 1973 but rebuilt his body and mind to become the ultimate bowler. But mostly when players lose a part of their 20s, they dont come back the same. Michael Vick, the NFL quarterback, and Mike Tyson both lost parts of their careers to prison, and returned as different beasts. So too did Muhammad Ali, despite winning two further belts after returning from his political exile. Michael Jordan was never the same scoring machine after he left for baseball.Mohammad Amir had all the hype, the limited-overs spells, the viral wickets against Somerset, the many dropped chances off Cook, and the winning wicket at Lords. But right now, he isnt the same bowler that he was aged 19, on the 2010 tour of England. Maybe he wont ever be. Or maybe he will be next week.But if he cant be, we shouldnt be surprised. Five years out of the game, five years of not learning, of not conditioning his body, of not perfecting his action, of not getting through the tough days, of not developing his game, seem to have left with him the odd good ball, the odd great ball, and several other parts of game in which he is under-developed.Sohails five years out of Test cricket, on the other hand, have been spent perfecting his game. Doing all the things that Amir robbed himself of.***Sohails penultimate spell involved a quest for reverse swing. And the ball did swing for him. At times he used it well, but he also looked like he was riding an imaginary horse into the crease, and even the horse was tired. It didnt look like he had another spell in him. But Misbah-ul-Haq brought him back to finish the day with the new ball.With every passing delivery, he looked more and more like a man longing for his hotel bed over a five-wicket haul. His pace was dropping so steadily, the speed gun attendant may have thought the batteries were slowly going flat in his machine.By the start of the last over of the day, Sohail wasnt so much limping to the crease, more running as if there was an invisible man holding him back. The ball was swinging massively out of his hand, but if you are bowling at 68 miles per hour, sometimes the ball swings through boredom. Many great Pakistani fast bowlers might have seen his speed as an affront to their trade.Part of Sohails lack of pace was down to his efforts to get the ball to swing, but equally he could barely run in any more. Sohail was tired. It was only Steven Finn slapping him down the ground for four that woke him up. And suddenly he was back in the mid-80s, trying to knock his head off. He didnt, because he still wasnt that quick, and instead Finn hooked him away for another four.And yet, the pace might have gone, but the skills were still there.He delivered the perfect inswinger to James Anderson. It looked plumb on first impact, and Sohail appealed like it was. When it was given out, he fell to his knees. He ended up in a sajda, but his gesture was that of an exhausted man falling to the ground, having bowled through his spent body to take a five-wicket haul in a Test match.The only energy he could muster wasnt for the wicket celebration, it was for the now-regulation Pakistani celebratory push-ups as he walked off. But his woodchoppers shoulders still had enough latent power to perform a clap between each repetition.Amir cashed in with a couple of wickets at the end of the day. But for once it wasnt about him. It was Sohail Khans day. No matter what Sohail does, he will never be the leading man, the star, the human headline. But all those years in the cricket wilderness, working at the academy, throwing rocks in the Hindu Kush, learning an outswinger, meant that he was ready.For Sohail, those five years might have felt like forever, but he used his exile well. Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. Deatrich Wise Jr. Womens Jersey . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. http://www.authoritypatriotsshop.com/derek-rivers-patriots-jersey-c-74/ . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Perth Glory know they need to find more avenues to goal aside from set pieces if they are to become the first A-League team to take points off Sydney FC this season.After conceding a goal after 30 seconds at home to Western Sydney Wanderers on Sunday, the Glory rebounded to take the lead as Alex Grant and Andy Keogh found the back of the net.The Wanderers fought back to secure a draw thanks to Brendon Santalabs 67-minute equaliser.With Nebojsa Marinkovic starting in place of injured Socceroos striker Adam Taggart, his set pieces have become a key component of Perths game. His free kick led to Glorys first goal again on Sunday.Glory assistant coach Andy Ord, who has been the main man on the sidelines the past two weeks with Kenny Lowe copping his pitchside ban, wants the team to have more goal-scoring options.Its always been a strength and theres no shame in being good at set pieces. When hes not on the pitch the deliverys not as good and other teams dont threaten with set pieces, Ord said.We knew thhat when we brought him (Marinkovic) to the club, its one of his attributes and its a weapon so why wouldnt you use it. Antonio Garcia Womens Jersey. Theres no secret that we are good at set pieces but wed like that to be the game winning things, not be what gets us back into a game. We want that to be the way to get three points and we need to find other avenues to score as well.The next challenge for the fourth placed Glory is playing Sydney FC Sunday at Allianz Stadium. Ord is confident Perth can go well but knows they need to improve to stop the Sky Blues winning a sixth straight game to open the season.Weve had a couple of wins over there the past two seasons, so we know we can win there, Ord said.Weve probably got to get better in quite a few areas to be serious about going there and winning. Its a place where if you can take three points and deserve it, you really set the season up.

BALTIMORE -- Not so long ago, the Padres were scuffling for victories no matter the opponent. Obi Melifonwu Jersey . Now a scrappy roster minus high-profile names is finding ways to win even against one of the American Leagues best. Alexi Amarista homered and doubled twice and the San Diego Padres matched their season-high with 17 hits, beating the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Wednesday for a two-game sweep. Everth Cabrera had four hits and a walk, and Jedd Gyorko had three singles for the Padres, who are 13-6 after a 5-15 start. John Baker hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the second against Freddy Garcia (0-2), and Kyle Blanks hit a solo homer in a two-run fourth as San Diego took a 4-1 lead. "Weve been playing well the last three weeks," said Padres manager Bud Black, whose club rallied after losing three straight at Tampa Bay. "Things have turned in a good way. We had a tough series down in Tampa. I liked the way the guys responded today. It was outstanding. We got to their starter. We kept the pressure on, got a lot of base hits." Every starter had at least one hit for the Padres, including Amarista, who entered the game batting .233 in 73 at-bats. Slotted eighth in the lineup between Blanks and Baker, the lefty-swinging outfielder went the opposite way for a two-run homer off Tommy Hunter in the seventh. "Every time you have an opportunity to get in there and produce, you have to take advantage of that so you can have some more opportunities to help the team," Amarista said through a translator. J.J. Hardy and Matt Wieters homered for the Orioles off Jason Marquis (5-2), who won his fourth straight start. Manny Machado had four hits. In getting swept for the first time this season, the Orioles allowed a season-high 17 hits. Marquis allowed two runs, seven hits and four walks in five-plus innings. He has a 2.45 ERA in his last four starts. Garcia gave up four runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings, his shortest outing in three starts for the Orioles. "Not quite as crisp," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "We just didnt pitch well today. What did we give up, like 17 hits? It wasnt just Freddy. They had some good fortune, too, but they hit a lot of balls hard too. They came in here and swung the bats well." Baltimore loaded the bases in the first before Wieters hit an inning-ending groundout. The sinkerball-throwing Marquis also escaped damage in the second and fifth by inducing double-play grounders. "Some days youre not going to feel as good as others, but at the end of the day you have to make pitches in big situations," Marquis said. "I dont want to keep putting myself in those situations, but if you do, got to find a way." Dale Thayer relieved Marquis with two on in the sixth and retired three in a row. Bakers second-inning single was one of three straight two-out hits. The fourth inning included Blanks homer, Amaristas second double of the game and Will Venables RBI double off T.J. McFarland. "Baker, Amarista, Blanks get in the lineup, those guys want to be a part of the contribution," Black said. "Today they were." Machado has at least three hits in four of his last five games and is batting .560 (14 of 25) in that span. The Orioles finished the first quarter of the season with a 23-17 record, not that Showalter is interested in such road markers. "This is an impossible game to be perfect at," Showalter said. "Im not going to get too reflective at the . thats for the Preakness or whatever it is, where they go a quarter-mile and all that other stuff." NOTES: The Padres have four series sweeps. ... After throwing 35 pitches on Wednesday, Orioles RHP Miguel Gonzalez (blister) is expected to pitch Friday either in a simulated game or in the minors. Placed on the 15-day DL on May 4, Gonzalez is 2-2 in six starts. ...

PITTSBURGH -- Travis Jankowski and the San Diego Padres are turning the straight steal of home into a trademark this season. Joshua Kimmich Jersey .Edwin Jackson pitched two-hit ball over seven innings, Travis Jankowski capped the scoring by stealing home and the Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 on Wednesday night.It was the fourth time the Padres had a straight steal of home this season, and the second by Jankowski.Almost any of the baserunning metrics you look at, were at or near the top, manager Andy Green said. Thats the type of team we are. Were going to be aggressive anytime we feel we can take an extra base.Jankowskis steal came with two outs in the eighth. The rookie center fielder took off during catcher Eric Fryers return throw to pitcher Antonio Bastardo and scored standing up when Fryer could not handle Bastardos low throw to the plate.Bastardo is a good pitcher, but I noticed when he was warming up that he was turning his back to the plate and I thought maybe Id have a chance, Jankowski said. Once you take off, though, there is no safety net. Youre either a hero or a zero. Fortunately, I was a hero.Jankowski was 2 for 4 with a double and the only player on either side with multiple hits.Jackson (3-2) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Jordy Mercers leadoff single. The 14-year veteran struck out seven and walked three while raising his career record against the Pirates to 10-3.The Pirates are a tough team to pitch against because they have guys who are threats all the way up and down the lineup, Jackson said. I was able to mix my pitches up and locate them.Since being called up July 17 from Triple-A El Paso, Jackson has recorded quality starts in four of five outings. The Miami Marlins released him June 2.Ryan Buchter and Brandon Maurer completed the two-hitter with one perfect inning each.Ryan Vogelsong (1-2) gave up two unearned run and three hits in six innings while striking out five and walking one.It was the 39-year-olds second start since sustaining facial fractures May 23 when hit by a pitch. He returned last Thursday and allowed one run in six innings against the Braves but did not factor in the decision in a game the Pirates lost.If theres a blessing in disguise of getting hit, its the fact that I got to deal with (Pirates pitching coach) Ray Searage every day for two months, Vogelsong said. I just got to start from ground zero when we were playing catch on the rehab process and just really starting over and trying to get rid of some of the bad habits that I had gotten into.The Padres capitalized on a throwing error by Vogelsong and a fielding error by third baseman Jung Ho Kang to score twice in the second inning.Ryan Schimpf doubled and scored on Alexei Ramirezs single in the seventh to make it 3-0.The Pirates remained 2 1/2 games behind the Miami Marlins for the second NL wild card.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: C Francisco Cervelli left the game in the fifth inning with left wrist discomfort. ... 1B John Jaso sat after sustaining a bruised left eye in a home plate collision Tuesday night, though he passed MLBs concussion protocol. ... C Chris Stewart (left knee discomfort) will begin a rehab assignment Friday at Double-A Altoona. Hes been on the disabled list since July 2. ... RHP Tyler Glasnow (right shoulder soreness) is scheduled to pitch four innings Sunday in his first rehab start with Altoona and be on a 70-pitch limit after being out since July 24.PADRES INFIELD NEWSThe Padres selected the contract of INF Nick Noonan from Triple-A El Paso and he is expected to get the majority of starts at shortstop while Ramirez moves into a bench role. INF Jose Rondon was optioned to El Paso.Meanwhile, 3B Yangervis Solarte was removed from the game in the first after it appeared manager Andy Green was displeased that he did not run out a popup to shortstop.UP NEXTPadres: LHP Christian Friedrich (4-7, 4.76 ERA) will start Thursday in the finale of the three-game series and look to end his five-game losing streak that covers seven starts since June 23.Pirates: RHP Jameson Taillon (2-2, 3.39) has pitched six innings in each of his last five starts and allowed three runs or less in each. Manuel Neuer Jersey . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. Xabi Alonso Jersey . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. http://www.bayernmunichfcstore.com/authentic-david-alaba-bayern-munich-jersey/ . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor labeled it unraveling.Twins right-hander Tyler Duffey (8-9) retired the first 10 hitters, striking out four. But he only got one out from the final seven batters he faced before being removed by Molitor in an 8-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night.After Cheslor Cuthberts single with one out in the fourth, Duffey walked three and hit a batter with Alex Gordons third career grand slam punctuating the inning. Duffey was replaced by Michael Tonkin after 3 2/3 innings, allowing five runs.Unraveling, thats one word you can use, Molitor said. He had a nice start to the game. He rolled through the first 10 hitters. But, you know, its just one of those things, the young guys, they get in certain situations where, as much as you preach to them to slow down, they just have trouble doing it.After Cuthberts hit, Duffey walked Lorenzo Cain and Kendrys Morales and hit Salvador Perez with a pitch with the bases loaded.Gordons been hot ever since he left our park, Molitor said. He just misplaced a fastball and youre looking at five runs on two hits. So, it was tough.The Royals have won five straight and eight of nine to move above .500 for the first time since July 22.

Gordon has homered in three consecutive games.I think I tried to adjust by being better, and ultimately being worse, Duffey said. Just kind of missing arm side with a fastball, then I end up yanking a curveball and then the one that Gordon hit out wasnt necessarily a good pitch to hit. It just went right into his swinng path.

BALTIMORE -- Not so long ago, the Padres were scuffling for victories no matter the opponent. Obi Melifonwu Jersey . Now a scrappy roster minus high-profile names is finding ways to win even against one of the American Leagues best. Alexi Amarista homered and doubled twice and the San Diego Padres matched their season-high with 17 hits, beating the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Wednesday for a two-game sweep. Everth Cabrera had four hits and a walk, and Jedd Gyorko had three singles for the Padres, who are 13-6 after a 5-15 start. John Baker hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the second against Freddy Garcia (0-2), and Kyle Blanks hit a solo homer in a two-run fourth as San Diego took a 4-1 lead. "Weve been playing well the last three weeks," said Padres manager Bud Black, whose club rallied after losing three straight at Tampa Bay. "Things have turned in a good way. We had a tough series down in Tampa. I liked the way the guys responded today. It was outstanding. We got to their starter. We kept the pressure on, got a lot of base hits." Every starter had at least one hit for the Padres, including Amarista, who entered the game batting .233 in 73 at-bats. Slotted eighth in the lineup between Blanks and Baker, the lefty-swinging outfielder went the opposite way for a two-run homer off Tommy Hunter in the seventh. "Every time you have an opportunity to get in there and produce, you have to take advantage of that so you can have some more opportunities to help the team," Amarista said through a translator. J.J. Hardy and Matt Wieters homered for the Orioles off Jason Marquis (5-2), who won his fourth straight start. Manny Machado had four hits. In getting swept for the first time this season, the Orioles allowed a season-high 17 hits. Marquis allowed two runs, seven hits and four walks in five-plus innings. He has a 2.45 ERA in his last four starts. Garcia gave up four runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings, his shortest outing in three starts for the Orioles. "Not quite as crisp," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "We just didnt pitch well today. What did we give up, like 17 hits? It wasnt just Freddy. They had some good fortune, too, but they hit a lot of balls hard too. They came in here and swung the bats well." Baltimore loaded the bases in the first before Wieters hit an inning-ending groundout. The sinkerball-throwing Marquis also escaped damage in the second and fifth by inducing double-play grounders. "Some days youre not going to feel as good as others, but at the end of the day you have to make pitches in big situations," Marquis said. "I dont want to keep putting myself in those situations, but if you do, got to find a way." Dale Thayer relieved Marquis with two on in the sixth and retired three in a row. Bakers second-inning single was one of three straight two-out hits. The fourth inning included Blanks homer, Amaristas second double of the game and Will Venables RBI double off T.J. McFarland. "Baker, Amarista, Blanks get in the lineup, those guys want to be a part of the contribution," Black said. "Today they were." Machado has at least three hits in four of his last five games and is batting .560 (14 of 25) in that span. The Orioles finished the first quarter of the season with a 23-17 record, not that Showalter is interested in such road markers. "This is an impossible game to be perfect at," Showalter said. "Im not going to get too reflective at the . thats for the Preakness or whatever it is, where they go a quarter-mile and all that other stuff." NOTES: The Padres have four series sweeps. ... After throwing 35 pitches on Wednesday, Orioles RHP Miguel Gonzalez (blister) is expected to pitch Friday either in a simulated game or in the minors. Placed on the 15-day DL on May 4, Gonzalez is 2-2 in six starts. ... Padres INF Logan Forsythe (right foot plantar fasciitis) is eligible to come off the 60-day DL on May 22, but will not begin baseball activities this week, Black said. ...Following an off day, the Orioles start a three-game series against Tampa Bay.

PARAMUS, N. Yaya Toure Jersey .J. -- Defending champion Eun Jeong Seong of South Korea and American Andrea Lee each won twice Friday at Ridgewood to advance to the championship match in the U.S. Girls Junior.The 16-year-old Seong beat Chinas Xinying Wang 3 and 2 in the morning quarterfinals and topped fellow South Korean player Yujeong Son 4 and 3 in the afternoon semifinals.

MADISON, Wis. -- The running game is shifting into high gear at No. 6 Wisconsin.Coach Paul Chryst said the teams depth at running back, which helped net 363 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 64 attempts against Illinois last week, is the key to providing more consistency for the offense.I really mean it when I say were going to need everyone this season, Chryst said Monday. Weve been lucky around here and everyone whos followed (Wisconsin football) knows how important it is to have multiple backs.Corey Clement is the workhorse starter, while Dare Ogunbowale is a change-of-pace and third-down back. Freshman Bradrick Shaw could be the lead back of the future, and even sophomore Taiwan Deal, who figures to get more snaps next season, got a few carries last week against Illinois.Win their last two regular season games -- Saturday against Purdue and next week against Minnesota -- and the Badgers (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten, No. 7 CFP) will be heading to the league championship game. Chryst said the Badgers depth bodes well for the stretch run.I think they all bring a llittle something different which is good, he said. Leroy Sane Manchester City Jersey.

ATLANTA - Evan Gattis no longer seems amazed by his improbable rookie season. Taywan Taylor Jersey . Yet, there are still times when its a bit of an adjustment for the Atlanta Braves catcher. Like when someone recognizes him in the grocery store. "Its a little weird," the 26-year-old Gattis said. "Im not used to that yet." Gattis did it again Wednesday, hitting his first career grand slam. B.J. Upton and Ramiro Pena also homered for the Braves, who finished off a sweep of the woeful Minnesota Twins with an 8-3 rout. The Braves stretched their winning streak to six games with a second straight series sweep, making things easy for starter Paul Maholm (6-4). The left-hander held the Twins to an unearned run in 7 1-3 innings. With the Braves already leading 4-0, Gattis struck again less than 24 hours after his two-out, pinch-homer in the ninth allowed the Braves to pull out a 5-4 win over the Twins in extra innings. "Its legend," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Good for him. The guys really rally around him and enjoy being around him." Gattis was swinging away on a 3-0 pitch with the bases loaded in the fourth and launched an opposite-field drive just inside the right-field pole for his 10th homer of the season. As Gattis rounded the bases, the theme from "The Natural" played over the speakers at Turner Field. In the Atlanta dugout, Upton looked on in disbelief, both arms in the air as if to say, "Is this really happening?" Believe it. Gattis made the team as a non-roster player in spring training after quitting baseball during college, working a variety of odd jobs, and dealing with bouts of depression that had him contemplating suicide. He still has a picture of his ID card from working as a janitor on his Twitter page. He returned to baseball after nearly four years away, having completed what he calls a spiritual journey. He earned a roster spot and got extensive playing time in April while the Braves battled injuries, earning the NL rookie of the month honours. Now, with all the regulars back in the lineup, hes making the most of his more limited chances in May. There was one stumble on the day, however. After Cory Rasmus, making his major league debut, got his first strikeout, Gattis flipped the ball to a little girl in the stands. "Weve got to teach him a little more court awareness," Gonzalez quipped. Not surprisingly, Gattis teammates were ragging him about the faux pas in the clubhouse. "I wasnt even thinking about it," he said, shaking his head. "I dont know what to say." Gattis dramatic homer Tuesday was his third as a pinch-hitter, and it was the fourth time hes hit a tying or go-ahead homer in the eighth inning or later. He got the start at catcher for the series finale, giving Brian McCann the day off. "I love this team," Gattis said. "All of our pitchers, relievers, everybody in the whole lineup, we all contribute, weve all got roles, weve all got things we do to help this team. Its a good feeling right now in the clubhouse. Were playing good baseball." The Twins, not so much. They lost their eighth in a row and demoted starting pitcher Vance Worley to the minors right after the game. Worley (1-5) lasted only 3 2-3 innings, surrendering eight runs and 10 hits. He also hit two batters and walked two more, his ERA climbing to 7.21. It would have been worse if Pena had not been thrown out at the plate in the first attempting to score on a flyout to left fielder Josh Willingham. "I went out there and I left the ball up just a little bit. My ERAs killing me. Its hard to win a game if youre behind," said Worley, who was sent to Triple-A Rochester. "They havent seen what Im capable of doing ever since I got here. Its been a battle and Ive just got to figure it out. This whole spring up to this point, I havent been consistent whatsoever." Before leaving, Worleys horrendous problems in the first continued when he allowed two hits and a walk, including Jason Heywards run-scoring single. In 10 starts, the right-hander has allowed 17 runs and 24 hits in the opening inning. Atlanta made it 3-0 in the third. Pena hit his second homer of the season and, after Worley plunked a pair of hitters, Chris Johnson came through with a two-out single to bring in another run. The Braves blew it open in the fourth. Upton, hitting just .153 coming in, led off with a homer into the seats in left-centre. After Maholms flyout, Jordan Schafer singled, Heyward singled, Freddie Freeman walked and Gattis went deep to finish off Worley and the Twins. "He said he felt good. The ball was coming out of his hand pretty decent," manager Ron Gardenhire said of his pitcher. "We saw some fastballs at 92, 93. But ultimately, he misfires too much over the plate and you see the ball flying. And thats what happened today. When he gets the ball up, they whack it pretty good." Minnesotas only run off Maholm came after Johnsons error at third base set up Justin Morneaus RBI single in the sixth. Aaron Hicks and pinch-hitter Oswaldo Arcia homered in the ninth off Rasmus, making his major league debut. NOTES: The Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the seven-day DL with a concussion. He took a blow to the head in the 10th inning of Tuesday nights game while breaking up an attempted double play. ... Minnesota called up former independent league star Chris Colabello, who was batting .358 at Triple-A Rochester and leading the International League with 12 homers and a .659 slugging percentage.

ROME -- Juventus two prized acquisitions were on full display in a convincing 3-1 win over Sassuolo in Serie A on Saturday. Daeshon Hall Jersey .Gonzalo Higuain scored twice in the opening 10 minutes and Miralem Pjanic added another before the break as the Bianconeri warmed up for a Champions League it has designs on winning.Everyone says Juve will win everything -- the league, Cup and the Champions League. But that hurts us, because we lose perspective, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. Weve got to play the matches and win them on the pitch.Higuain and Pjanic were each making their first starts for Juventus after transferring from rivals Napoli and Roma, respectively.Higuains move broke the Italian transfer fee record at 90 million euros ($100 million) after scoring 36 times last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A mark for goals scored in a single season.Pjanic, the crafty Bosnia playmaker, arrived for a more modest 32 million euros ($36 million).Higuains new partnership with fellow Argentina forward Paulo Dybala didnt take long to function. Five minutes in, Dybala provided the through ball for Higuain to finish off a counterattack with an angled shot inside the far post.Five minutes later, Higuain produced an acrobatic effort to redirect in a headed pass from Sami Khedira.The partnership with Dybala is improving. But I just got here. Weve got time, Higuain said. Im really happy to have come here.Pjanics first goal of the season came following a rebound of his own shot off the crossbar.It wasnt all perfect, though.Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon came up empty handed when he leaped to grab a corner, allowing Sassuolos Luca Antei to score when the ball bounced off his feet.It marked the second time Juventus has conceded a goal from a corner this season, after conceding two all of last season.Still, Juventus has a full nine points from the opening three rounds as it aims to become the first club to win Serie A for six consecutive years.Napoli, last seasons runner-up, is two points behind in second place after a 3-0 win at Palermo.On Wednesday, Juventus hosts Sevilla in the Champions League aiming to improve on its runner-up finish from 2015.Compared to two years ago, Allegri has a much deeper squad to choose from. Among those who started on the bench were standouts such as Mario Mandzukic, Dani Alves, Patrice Evra, Juan Cuadrado, Hernanes, and Andrea Barzagli.Sassuolo was the revelation of Serie A last season, finishing sixth, but has won just one of its opening three matches in this campaign. The club from near Modena was missing its star forward, Domenico Berardi, who was injured.---NAPOLI-POST HIGUAINNapoli is doing just fine without Higuain.Jose Callejon scored twice and Marek Hamsik opened the scoring for the Partenopei in a 3-0 win at Palermo.After opening with a disappointing 2-2 draw at promoted Pescara, Napoli followed that up with a 4-2 win over AC Milan and has now extended its unbeaten start to three matches.Hamsik put Napoli ahead early in the second half with a shot from the center of the area that went in off the crossbar and Callejon doubled the lead three minutes later by crouching down for a header after being left unmarked inside the box.Callejon added another with a shot from the edge of the area.Often obscured during Higuains tenure at Napoli, the former Real Madrid striker Callejon has scored four goals in two matches.Napoli returns to the Champions League at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.Palermo coach Roberto De Zerbi made a disappointing debut after Davide Ballardinis resignation.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Curtis Samuel Youth Jersey .
