The old adage that you dont win a Test in one session but can certainly lose it applied perfectly around the time Virat Kohli took over as captain in January 2015. David de Gea Jersey . During a stretch of just away Tests, they competed well but kept losing their way.In Durban, they went from 265 for 4 to 334 all out on a flat pitch and never recovered. In Auckland, they nearly pulled off an incredible chase of 407 but lost two wickets just before the new ball to eventually lose by 40 runs. In Southampton, they were bowled out in two sessions in their second innings. In Adelaide they were 299 for 5 in a chase of 364, but lost five wickets for 16 runs. In Brisbane, they went toe to toe with Australia for three days before an unsettled session on the fourth morning after a practice pitch mishap cost them the game. In Galle, they won seven sessions before Dinesh Chandimal took the Test away from them.For whatever reason - perhaps lack of fitness, concentration and mental strength - they were letting Tests slip. The matches they have won after that Galle Test have obviously involved hard work, but they havent been against sides that just keeps refusing to roll over. In difficult conditions - both underfoot and overhead - New Zealand, battling injuries even before the start of the series, have done themselves immense credit in answering the count after every blow.That is precisely why this series win has to be one of their more special events in Indias unbeaten run of 12 Tests - nine wins and three draws with weather playing a significant part. This Test, in particular, was significant because this was played in conditions that brought New Zealands quicks into the game.It has been India outlasting their opponents both with the bat and the ball throughout the series. Having squandered the toss advantage to end the first day of the series at 291 for 9, they came back and added 27 crucial runs on the second morning. Then when New Zealand put together partnerships, the bowlers kept pulling out tricks.Coming into Kolkata, Anil Kumble said he didnt need to worry about the pitch because his side had all bases covered. Their top-order batting is not one of them yet, but the lower order once again covered up for them. Kohli, and his batsmen can be grateful that under him there has not been one Test where the lower order has not made a contribution with the bat. Since 2014, Indias lower order has contributed the highest proportion of its team runs among all sides. On this pitch, though, you would have thought New Zealand fast bowlers would be able to run through.Not through Wriddhiman Saha, no. Even in the second innings, New Zealand refused to give up, reducing India to 106 for 6, but Saha and Rohit Sharma came back hard at them. New Zealand once again found out they just couldnt go punch-for-punch with this team.This was mostly a new-ball pitch where you got limited periods where the quicks became lethal -with the new ball and under the flood lights to be precise. Extreme humidity had rendered reverse swing insignificant. So there were about 25 overs with the new ball, and then there was little over half an hour under the lights on day two in which to create inroads. India took four wickets in the first 25 overs, and then snuffed out three more n that half hour under artificial light three more. Six of the seven wickets fell to pace.Every time New Zealand have had a partnership, it has been instructive to observe India on the field. They have refused to look flat or go on the defensive. There will obviously be bigger tests in foreign conditions, but things have been allowed to drift at any point of time. They have given their plan A a good go but havent always had a plan B.In this series, they have burst through every small window of opportunity. The spinners changed angles to break partnerships twice in Kanpur. Whenever India have managed to get the ball changed, Mohammed Shami has reversed it. Ask BJ Watling who has fallen to it thrice. A green pitch brought Bhuvneshwar Kumar in ahead of Umesh Yadav, and he lived his dream of taking a home five-for.Most importantly perhaps Kumble has brought in the maturity that this side required. That extra batsman, that support for Cheteshwar Pujara has brought in the stability that a Test team requires.This is a long season. There will be pressure of expectations, there will be demands of fitness, at some point they may even need to rotate resources and perhaps during ODIs, they will likely be asked to come back after losing a toss, but now is the time to savour fruits their persistence and skill have borne. Asier Illarramendi Jersey .

American sprinter Justin Gatlin has a message for United States swimmer Lilly King: Not so fast. Derwin James Jersey .King, 19, was critical earlier this week about the Olympic participation of athletes -- including Gatlin -- who have tested positive for banned substances in the past. Gatlin has twice been caught using banned substances, but is considered the top threat to unseating Jamaican star Usain Bolt in the 100-meter final Sunday.I dont even know who Lilly King is, Gatlin said after winning his 100-meter heat Saturday in 10.01 seconds -- the best time of the day. She does swimming and not track and field.Im not worried about that. I have confidence in my policies that Im with. USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) has done a great job. WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) has done a great job. I have come back and done what I need to do.The 34-year-old Gatlin, who won gold at 100 meters at the 2004 Olympics, first tested positive for amphetamines, though arbitrators determined he didnt use them for doping but to treat attention deficit disorder. The second came for excessive testosterone in 2006 and resulted in a four-year ban.Ive worked hard, just like everybody else, and I get tested, just like everybody else, Gatlin said Saturday. Im back here. I believe in the system. I hope everybody else believes in the system too.King originally made her comments after the Court of Arbitration for Sport allowed Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova to compete in Rio after a last-minute appeal of her doping ban.When asked about Gatlin, King remained critical.Do I think people who have been caught doping should be on the team? They shouldnt, said King, who beat Efimova to win the gold medal in the womens 100-meter breaststroke. Its unfortunate that we have to see that and then its such a tossup in between sports and in between countries. Its something that needs to be set in stone that this is what were gonna do to settle this and that should be the end of it. There should not be any bouncing back and forth. Antonio Gates Jersey .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. Corey Liuget Jersey .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. http://www.chargersauthenticshop.com/Chargers-Trevor-Williams-Draft-Jersey/ . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. NEW ORLEANS -- Alvin Gentry was defiant when asked if hes concerned about his job status after his New Orleans Pelicans lost their fourth straight game Thursday night. The Pelicans fell 99-88 to the last-place Philadelphia 76ers, who stopped a franchise record-tying 23 road games entering the night.I really dont give a s--- about my job status, Gentry said. Im gonna work hard, and Im gonna coach until the day they tell me Im not the coach here anymore. It doesnt matter. I dont ever worry about that. That isnt anything that I spend five seconds worrying about.My worry is how do I get the guys in the locker room to play at the level that I want them to. Thats where all my effort goes. It doesnt go anywhere else.The Pelicans have now lost six of their past seven games following a four-game winning streak sparked by the return of guard Jrue Holiday. New Orleans is now 7-16 overall and in fourth-to-last place in the Western Conference.Asked if this feels like a low point for the team, Pelicans star Anthony Davis replied, Yup.Asked if this is the most frustrated he has been after a loss in his five seasons in New Orleans, Davis replied, Yup.Davis currently leads the league in points (31.6), blocks (2.8), minutes played (38) and player efficiency rating (31.2) and is averaging career highs in rebounds (11.5) and steals (1.8).However, the Pelicans entered the night ranked 25th in offensive efficiency and second to last in 3-point shooting percentage (31.6).Weve got to be able to make shots, Gentry said. Weve got to be able to take pressure off Anthony some kind of way, and the only way we can do that [is] we have to have guys make shots.Davis finished Thursdays loss with 26 points on 8-for-21 shooting and 11 rebounds. As a team, the Pelicans shot 39 percent from the floor and 28 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.Even when we won, I thought it was fools gold, Pelicans forward Solomon Hill said. We won games, but our ball movement is nonexistent. We come down, pick-and-roll and throw it to AD, and you just have AD scoring over three people. We want to get him in position where its two at [most], or one.We have to come down [and] move the ball, move the ball and then get it to AD. I think we justt come down and throw it right to him and we just wait and watch. Lance Alworth Jersey. We can say we want ball movement, but when hes going, everybodys out there watching.The Pelicans were without Holiday (left turf toe) and ETwaun Moore (right toe contusion) for the second straight game, and Dante Cunningham (broken right fibula) for a seventh game. Tyreke Evans (right knee/left calf) and Quincy Pondexter (left knee) have missed the entire season.I think its hard to measure because weve got so many people in and out, on this and on that, restricted this, that I dont think we have a fair handle on what kind of team we even have, Gentry said. Thats the frustrating thing, I think. I think we got confident guys. Obviously your confidence is going to be a little bit rocked when you lose five, six straight games. Thats just the way this league is. But youve got to find a way to regroup, and you keep moving forward.New Orleans players cumulatively lost 351 games to injury and illness last season, the second most by a team in the past decade, and the team used an NBA-high 42 different starting lineups last season.Asked if he ever envisioned the Pelicans situation getting this bad when he took the job during the 2015 playoffs, Gentry said, No, I didnt expect this, no. But we have who we have. And the bottom line is, I dont care who we have in the locker room. All I expect is them to do is compete and play hard, which theyve done most of the night, and then weve got to try to find a way to execute. And then weve got to make some shots. Weve got to knock down some shots. Thats the bottom line.Gentry is 37-68 (35.2 percent winning percentage) since he took over from Monty Williams before the 2015-16 season. Gentry has compiled a 372-438 record (45.9 percent) in 13-plus seasons as an NBA head coach.Hes doing fine, Davis said of Gentry.The Pelicans next face a road back-to-back this weekend against the Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns.We need to figure out something, Davis said. [Were] on the road against two tough teams. Whatever it is we need to do, we need to figure it out. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

ATHENS, Ga. Greg Maddux Jersey . -- There has been good reason to question Georgias worthiness as a Top 25 team for three straight weeks.The No. 12 Bulldogs have had 10-point deficits in each of their two games against FBS teams, and they struggled to beat FBS Nicholls by only two points.Even so, Georgia players say their confidence is soaring as they prepare to play No. 23 Mississippi on Saturday. Thats because Georgia (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) keeps finding ways to win.The most dramatic example of the Bulldogs determination came in last weeks 28-27 win over Missouri when it took the lead on Jacob Easons 20-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie with 1:31 remaining.Eason, a freshman, threw the go-ahead scoring pass on a fourth-and-10 play. That was just the pickup in morale the Bulldogs needed following the shaky 26-24 win over Nicholls.It says a lot about who we are, Georgia linebacker Reggie Carter said Monday. Were starting to create an identity as a team who always fights and plays hard. ... I love my team, I just really love this team.The Bulldogs have staged successful comebacks after trailing North Carolina 24-14 in the third quarter and Missouri 10-0 in the first half.I think it has shown a resiliency in our team, being able to have those kinds of wins, said fullback Christian Payne. It shows were not going to stop, were not going to give up or anything like that. Were going to keep fighting, keep chopping, until we get the victory.McKenzie has emerged as a go-to playmaker on a team which began the season leaning heavily on tailback Nick Chubb. Georgia won its SEC opener against Missouri even as Chubb was held to 63 yards rushing without a touchdown.McKenzie, best known as a return specialist in his first two seasons, leads the SEC with five touchdowns and is second with 101.7 yards receiving per game. He set career highs with 10 catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns against Missouri.Eason passed for 308 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in his second start. Eason played every snap, and his game-winning drive affirmed he has a solid hold on the starting job.Coach Kirby Smart said last week he wasnt ready to declare a firm winning in the long competition between Eason and senior Greyson Lambert. Smart said Monday Eason will start against Ole Miss.Jacobs going to be able to start our game, assuming he has a good week of practice, Smart said. Thats the plan going forward, that if he continues to practice well and do the right things then hell be the starter.Smart said he wont allow Eason -- or any freshman -- to be interviewed this season. Weve got a policy here, and Jacob Eason adheres to that policy, too, Smart said.Eason has not been available for interviews since signing day in February. Even though Georgia has not approved any media requests to interview freshmen this season, Monday was the first time the policy was clarified to be in place throughout the season.Game notes Smart was testy in answering questions about his offensive line, which has allowed nine sacks and has struggled at times in run-blocking, including against Nicholls. He asked What went on last year? He noted most of the players on the line are the same as in 2015 and his staff is working to make the players stronger. He also said coaches already have tried every combination on the line. The new starters on the line are Rhode Island transfer Tyler Catalina at left tackle and Lamont Gaillard at right guard.---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Justin Grimm Jersey .

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Eric Berry Jersey . -- Quinton Spain has a much different pedigree than the other Titans linemen.Spain is an undrafted second-year pro from West Virginia trying to maintain his status as the Tennessee Titans first-team left guard. Spain started the final six games for the Titans last season and has been running with the first-team line in camp.Contrast that with the Titans other four projected starting linemen. Tennessees line includes two first-round picks at the tackle spots in Taylor Lewan (2014) and Jack Conklin (2016), a first-rounder at right guard in Chance Warmack (2013) and a coveted free-agent acquisition at center in Ben Jones.Spain is doing all he can to maintain his role as a starter.I felt like Ive done pretty good, Spain said. Ive just got to keep moving forward and keep battling for the spot.In assessing Spains play through the first week of training camp, Titans coach Mike Mularkey offered some praise while also stressing Spains need for improvement.Hes been a little bit hot-and-cold, Mularkey said. More hot than cold, but when hes had his mistakes, theyve been pretty significant. I mean, they stand out. Not getting out on some screens, not covering up guys today.Again, he was an undrafted free agent last year that -- hes held his own, but the more he gets, the better hes going to get, as well. Hes still in a competition at that left guard position.Spains primary competition should come from former starting center Brian Schwenke, Jeremiah Poutasi and rookie sixth-round pick Sebastian Tretola. The competition to determine the starting offensive line begins in earnest in the next couple of days.The Titans have intentionally stuck with the same starters up to this point because they were still putting in offensive installations.That process is near an end, allowing offensive line coach Russ Grimm to start playing a form of musical chairs to determine the eventual starters.Were going to start rolling some people in there, Grimm said. I tell people all the time were not playing a game for real yet. So there are no set starters. So when you come out and you start stepping through stuff, you kind of keep guys at the same spot till we get the whole offense.As of tomorrow, the whole offense is going to be in, so now youre going to see guys that know the assignment so they can flip from one side to the other.I dont want to flip them too early because they start getting confused and stuff like that. Once they learn the offense and now that weve got it all in, then were going to start shuffling some people around to see what weve got.As for how things fall, Spain isnt fretting the competition.Ive just got to play my game, and whatever happens, happens, Spain said. If playing my game is not enough, I cant look back and say I didnt give it my all.---Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Ramik Wilson Jersey .ca!

The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope. http://www.chiefsauthenticofficialstore.com/authentic-tamba-hali-jersey.html . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . The European League Championship Series kicked off with a matchup between Giants Gaming (8-7-3) and Unicorns of Love (6-7-5). The third seed, Giants was a slight favorite over Unicorns, the sixth seed, but that was only on paper.Game one was the best example of how UoL snowballed early in the game. Kang Move Min-su was pivotal throughout the entire series; if he was allowed freedom to rotate and fight often, UoL snowballed easier and routed Giants Gaming, but if he was shutdown or forced to fight in one lane for the entirety of the early game, it was immediate trouble. UoL also drafted well to counter its opponents. In game one, the lineup drafted a Kennen and Ryze to anchor the top and middle and allowed Move to pick and choose the lanes he wanted to fight in. Game ones 21-5 kill score in favor of the UoL set the pace for the rest of the series.Giants showed some signs of adaptation, but UoLL was just too overwhelming. Len Dawson Jersey. The game that Giants Gaming took was due to one adaptation: secure farm for cores and shutdown roaming ganks. The team camped out the top lane with constant ganks from Gun NighT Woo Na to secure Lennart SmittyJ Warkus farm and power spike. The strategy to block off Moves movements worked out and revealed a linear weakness with UoL.In the end, however, UoL absolutely outplayed and out drafted Giants Gaming in a dominating effort, 3-1. Giants Gaming simply did not do enough to prevent the Unicorns team fight and snowballing potential, and it showed in every games scores. UoL will move on to play in the semifinals to play against G2 Esports, where it will need more than just snowball tactics to take a well-rounded EU LCS team. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys CanadaCheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

OAKLAND, Calif. Buffalo Bills Jerseys . -- The Texas Rangers took the first step Friday night toward what they hope will be a World Series championship when they clinched the American League West crown.One day after beating the Oakland As 3-0, the Rangers will try to zero in on their next goal, securing home-field advantage for the AL playoffs.Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish will face As rookie right-hander Raul Alcantara in the second game of the three-game series at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.Its important to start, no matter who youre playing, at home, Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre said. Obviously we went through a tough series with Toronto last year and we played the last game at their place. Sometimes when you play at your place its a little easier for you because you got the fans behind you and youre more familiar with the stadium you play in.Texas is 91-63, but Cleveland, which leads the AL Central by seven games, is 90-63. And Boston, which leads the East by 5 1/2 games, is 90-64.Its really important, said Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels, who pitched seven shutout innings for the win Friday. Theres a comfort knowing youre (playing) in front of your fans. So thats something we got a lot of work to do because there are some good teams that are going to be trying to do the same this week.Darvish, who missed the entire 2015 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, will make his 16th start of the season and second straight against the As. A week ago in Arlington, Darvish gave up seven runs on seven hits over five innings in an 11-2 loss to Oakland and Alcantara. He struck out eight and walked four.In his past three starts, Darvish is 0-2 with a 7.47 ERA over 15 2/3 innings. He allowed 13 runs and 17 hits during that span while striking out 21 and walking eight.Alcantara will make his fourth career major league start and second straight against the Rangers in a rematch with Darvish.Alcantara allowed two run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings at Globe Life Park a week ago. He struck out three and walked none.I thought he pitched really well, As manager Bob Melvin said. Every time out he seems to get more and more comfortable, and more so last time than any. Were (on) a little bit of a pitch count with some of these guys and an innings count. Whether its him or (Jharel) Cotton, were not going to overextend them. But I thought pitching in that ballpark against that lineup and having the success he did was big for him.What was working well for Alcantara against the Rangers?Everything, Melvin said. The velocity on the heater was good, his secondary pitches were good. He kind of put everything together that maybe in his first two starts, certainly in his first start, wasnt there.

GLENDALE, Ariz. Juan Bernat Jersey . -- The Arizona Coyotes spent most of overtime on their heels, chasing pucks and dodging shots. The Coyotes finally cleared the puck after a big save by Mike Smith and had a man advantage on a delayed penalty.Thats when they turned to Oliver Ekman-Larsson, the king of overtime hockey.Ekman-Larsson set an NHL record for game-winning goals by a defenseman last season and picked up where he left off Saturday night, scoring at 1:48 of overtime to help the Coyotes begin their 20th season in the desert with a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.Obviously, Im playing with a lot of confidence playing 3 on 3 in overtime, said Ekman-Larsson, who leads NHL defensemen with 21 winning goals the past three seasons.The Flyers dominated the early part of overtime, but a sprawling save by Smith on Matt Read allowed the Coyotes to clear the puck and set up at the other end.Philadelphias Jakub Voracek was then hit with an unsportsmanlike penalty, allowing Smith to skate off for an extra attacker. The Coyotes worked the puck around quickly, with Radim Vrbata sending out a pass from behind the goal to Martin Hanzal, who one-timed it to Ekman-Larsson.The four-time NHL All-Star gathered the puck and lifted it over a diving Steve Mason for his latest winner.Hanzal also had a goal, along with Shane Doan and Brad Richardson for the Coyotes.I dont think my heart rates been that high before with that flurry that went on what felt like forever, said Smith, who stopped 27 shots. Then high-stepping to the bench and winning, celebrating with my teammates on the bench was crazy there for a few minutes.The Flyers rallied from a 3-1 deficit after playing the night before and tied it on Reads goal early in the third period. But Philadelphia continued to struggle on the power play -- 0 for 4 -- and couldnt capitalize on numerous chances in overtime when it appeared to have the Coyotes on the ropes.Michael Raffl and Wayne Simmonds also scored for the Flyers. Mason stopped 31 shots.Sometimes you just dont get the bounces, Simmonds said. (Smith) makes a bunch of good saves there. Then they turn around and go to the other end, get a scramble and the puck ends up in our net.Coming off a rebuilding season, the Coyotes are hoping to take the next step two decades after moving to the desert from Winnipeg.The Flyers stood pat over the offseason after reaching the playoffs last year and opened the 2016-17 season with a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night.The Coyotes, not surprisingly, had a jump in their step for the opener and scored their first goal on a power play midway through the first period.Doan, who led Arizona with 28 goals last season, got it by gathering a loose puck and flicking it past Mason, who was run into by two players. The goal was upheld after a challenge by the Flyers for goalie interference.The Flyers gathered themselves after the slow start, tying it on Raffls deflection of a shot by Nick Schultz from the point.Hanzal scored late in the period on a rebound and Richardson got the Coyotes off to a quick start in the second, scoring a short-handed goal 17 seconds in to make it 3-1.The Flyers rallied despite the short turnaround from last night.Simmonds pulled Philadelphia within 3-2 by slipping the puck between Smiths pads in the second period and Read used a nifty move to tie it early in the third, deking Smith to get him out of position before knocking in a backhander.Thought for a back to back, thats the effort you want, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said.Game notes Arizonas Jacob Chychrun and Christian Dvorak each had assists for their first NHL points. ... The Flyers are scoreless in six chances on the power play this season. ... The Coyotes are 8-2-0 when opening a season at home since moving to Arizona.UP NEXTThe Flyers play at Chicago on Tuesday before heading back to Philadelphia for their home opener against Anaheim.Arizona kicks off a six-game trip in Ottawa on Tuesday. Renato Sanches Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Sandro Wagner Jersey . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. http://www.fcmunichpro.com/Kids-Serge-Gnabry-Jersey/ . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. MILWAUKEE -- Adam LaRoche was struggling so much at the plate, he decided to try something different. So he grabbed teammate Jayson Werths bat. The move paid off as LaRoche hit his 15th home run of the season in the sixth inning to help lead the Nationals to a 3-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to the home run, Washingtons first baseman had just one hit in his previous 28 at bats. LaRoche said Ian Desmond suggested he try Werths bat as Werth was hitting .337 in his last 51 games. "My bat has not been feeling very good lately so why not give someone elses a try," LaRoche said. "I got a pitch I could hit and I was able to drive it." Desmond, who batted after LaRoche, also used Werths bat, but he flied out to leftfield. "Maybe we should just leave Jasons bat up there for everyone to use," LaRoche said. The other key to the game for the Nationals was the continued strong pitching of Dan Haren. He went seven strong innings, giving up just four hits, with six strikeouts and two walks. Tyler Clippard pitched a scoreless eighth inning. Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth inning to earn his 28th save in 32 chances. The only inning that Haren struggled was the first as he gave up a leadoff double to Rickie Weeks. Weeks moved to third on a sacrifice bunt. Haren struck out Jean Segura, but walked Jonathan Lucroy. He got Carlos Gomez to pop out to short to end the inning. It was the second straight strong outing for Haren (6-11) as he allowed one run and three hits in seven innings of a 4-1 win over the New York Mets on July 27. Prior to that, Haren had not won a game in more than two months as the Nationals had lost his previous 11 starts. Haren went 0-8 with a 6.18 ERA in that stretch. Haren was on the disabled list in early July with a sore right shoulder and said the rest did him good. "Going on the disabled list gave me a chance to regroup," he said. "I wanted to leave the first part of the season behind and heelp the team try and get back into the race. Manuel Neuer Jersey. " Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Haren has a lot of pride and wanted to help the team win. "He threw a bunch of pitches early, but really settled down," Johnson said. "Hes been throwing very well for us." Johnson said Werth left the game in the sixth inning after injuring his groin. Werth is not expected to play Sunday, but Johnson said he hopes to play him on Monday against Atlanta. Donovan Hand (0-3), making his sixth start of the season, gave up three runs on five hits for the Brewers. Milwaukee lost its third straight game and has only scored one run in the first two games of the series. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said it was another game of wasted opportunities. "When we get these opportunities, we need to figure out a way to get those guys in," he said. "We didnt have a lot today but when we do have the opportunity (in the first inning) -- and at that point a ground ball to the infield scores the guy --we have to find a way to put it in play. " The Nationals took a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Werth singled to start the inning and scored on Anthony Rendons sacrifice fly as he slid around the tag from Lucroy. Wilson Ramos seventh home run of the season in the fifth inning boosted Washingtons lead to 2-0. LaRoches home run in the sixth inning closed out the scoring. Notes: Roenicke said LHP Tom Gorzelanny is expected to miss at least one start after being struck on his pitching elbow by a line drive Friday night. ... The attendance for the first two games of the series was 70,514, meaning the team handed out $705,100 in vouchers for food and merchandise. The team is handing out $10 vouchers to every fan that attends a home game in August as a result of slugger Ryan Brauns suspension for the rest or the season. ...

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks kick off a stretch of three straight home-and-home sets Wednesday when they host the Chicago Bulls at the Bradley Center. http://www.authenticshopbroncos.com/customized/ .The Bucks face Chicago on back-to-back nights and do the same next Tuesday and Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They wrap up that stretch with games against Washington to bookend the Christmas holiday.Its a daunting challenge for the Bucks, who lost three in a row after winning six of eight contests to move to two games above .500.Its hard to beat an NBA team back-to-back, Bucks coach Jason Kidd said Wednesday. Its tough to beat a team twice in 48 hours, no matter who youre playing. LeBron (James), Chicago, Brooklyn but were professionals. Everybody has pride, and everybody wants to win.Chicago comes into the game looking to bounce back after blowing a 21-point lead and falling 99-94 to Minnesota on Tuesday night at the United Center.Jimmy Butler finished with 27 points and nine rebounds in the contest while Dwyane Wade dished out eight assists but was ejected down the stretch for arguing with the officials.Butler, who like Wade played collegiately in Milwaukee for Marquette, has been red-hot of late, averaging 25.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists over his last eight games.In 17 career games against the Bucks, Butler averages 13.4 points per game on 47.5 percent shooting.Jimmy Butler is playing at a very high level, Kidd said.Point guard Rajon Rondo sat out the Minnesota game with an ankle injury and will be a game-time decision Thursday at Milwaukee.Jerian Grant started in Rondos place and played 19 minutes while Isaiah Canaan covered another 27 minutes off the bench.Rondo was having one of his best practices of the year (Monday), Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg told the Chicago Tribue. He was all over the place. He was talking, he was cutting, he was moving. And it was kind of a freak play right at the end of practice. He didnt really land on anybody. Just kind of landed on it wrong and tweaked it.Its point tender right now. Hes limping pretty good. Hopefully with a couple more treatments the next few days well get him back for the Milwaukee games (Thursday and Friday).Chicago will be without point guard Michael-Carter Williams, who was dealt to the Bulls by Milwaukee during training camp but missed the last month with a sore left wrist.In exchange for Carter-Williams, Milwaukee acquired Tony Snell, who started 22 games and averaged 8.3 points with 4.2 rebounds. Snell is struggling of late especially from 3-point range, going 5 for 23 in his last five games.Three-pointers are a problem of late for the Bucks defense. Milwaukee was leading the league in defensive 3-point percentage but dropped to second after the Raptors made 14 of 25 attempts Tuesday in Toronto.The Bulls, meanwhile, are 30th in the league shooting the 3 (30.7 percent) but make up for that shortcoming inside.This is a team that puts a lot of pressure on you in the paint and mid-range, Kidd said. We cant give them threes.And weve got to protect the paint.The Bulls won three straight against Milwaukee. http://www.authenticshopbroncos.com/broncos-jordan-norwood-navy-blue-jersey/ .

When satellite camps were banned in April, it seemed we would all be deprived of all of this. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/ . Then, three weeks later, the ban was lifted and the Michigan coach was off and running.Before the ban, Harbaugh announced a summer satellite camp tour with 39 camps in 22 states plus visits to American Samoa and Australia. And while Harbaugh didnt attend every camp, each time he attend a camp, the buzz, excitement and the spotlight of the college football was there. And for every stop, every jersey, every lunatic antic and philosophical interview, Harbaugh delivered.Heres the best from the Summer of Jim:Meet Harbaugh, the shade-thrower.Its bad for college football, Alabama coach Nick Saban said about satellite camps.This is the wild, wild West at its best. There have been no specific guidelines relative to how were managing control of this stuff.Think Harbaugh was going to stand by for this? Not a chance.June 2: SEC country, Hammerin Hank and the first jerseyIn Atlanta, Harbaugh hosted his first camp in SEC country. He co-hosted the camp with Georgias Kirby Smart, but both coaches paled when Hank Aaron arrived. The Braves Hall of Famer spoke at the camp, and Harbaugh donned an Aaron No. 44 jersey.Jim looks great in jerseys tucked into his khakis, right? Good. Therell be more.In Baltimore, wearing a Ray Lewis jersey, Harbaugh declared theres a prejudice against football.The second-year Wolverines coach was hurt by what he called daily rules changes from the NCAA about granting interviews and signing autographs at satellite camps. Like any master politician, Harbaugh quickly pivoted his message to his fight for football.Thats why Im pointing this out because some of these other sports arent getting it.Football gets the majority of the scrutiny and the rules that are intended to hurt the student-athlete, and it makes no sense, he told ESPNs Heather Dinich. Thats why Im pointing this out because some of these other sports arent getting it.No, were passionate about the game of football and teaching it and bringing it to the doorstep of anybody thats interested in being involved in athletics and being involved in football, he said. Were not going to just agree. Were going to fight for it.Its great, but imagine if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had to participate in the first presidential debate in Dayton, Ohio, in LeBron and Craig Ehlo jerseys.June 8: 1,200 miles to gloryIt wasnt the first satellite camp two-a-day for Harbaugh, but it might be the most epic.Harbaugh began the day in Pearl, Mississippi, wearing an Archie Manning New Orleans Saints jersey.Harbaugh then flew on a private plane to Paramus, New Jersey, some 1,200 miles away.Now, this is New Jersey. And Big Ten football. And Ohio State was hosting a camp with Rutgers some 30 miles from Michigans camp at Paramus Catholic. So things got a bit crazy.Before Harbaugh even arrived, members of a Rutgers secret society that calls itself the Order of the Bulls Blood vandalized the Paramus Catholic field with, among other things, a stuffed bear and a letter telling Harbaugh to go home.Aside from the beefing, both camps hosted more than 1,400 players and Harbaugh pulled off pinstripes.At a football camp (of course!) Harbaugh announces that his wife is pregnant.Harbaugh said he will be attacking this pregnancy with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.This will be Harbaughs seventh child.June 24: Honoring a greatWhile in Southern California, Harbaugh and Co. held a camp at Oceanside High School. That high school is the alma mater of late NFL great Junior Seau, who was Harbaughs teammate with the San Diego Chargers. Of course, Harbaugh paid tribute to him.The next day we got Jim Mamba.June 26: AlohaIn Honolulu for a camp, Harbaugh hit the island life.The camp was held at Saint Louis School, the high school of Heisman winner Marcus Mariota.While in Hawaii, Harbaugh offered a scholarship to a Class of 2020 quarterback. That makes the player just a high school freshman.In a technicality, Harbaugh is missing from this video.?But, is his influence ever far away from college footballs viral spotlight? Keep in mind, Harbaugh quoted Rafiki from The Lion King in October.?Michigans satellite camp tour ended June 29 when Harbaugh canceled a camp in American Samoa for fears of the Zika virus. So what does a man who has traveled the country coaching football do for a vacation?He goes to Disneyland, of course.And while there, he just happened to run into talk show legend Jerry Springer.He also took this great photo with Chewbacca.Harbaugh is back to his day job of coaching the Wolverines. Its only August, but weve already seen J.J. Watt, Steph Curry and Archie Manning were there. Hammerin Hank, The Answer and The Captain were, too, at least in jersey form.But dont be sad that the summer is drawing to a close. Michigan begins its season Sept. 3 against Hawaii.And Harbaughs honorary captain ... some guy named Michael Jordan.Illustrations from Asaf Hanuka http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Nigel-Bradham-Jersey/.J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Nelson-Agholor-Jersey/ . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Derek-Barnett-Jersey/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. PITTSBURGH -- Francisco Liriano has won twice as many games as he did a year ago and theres still two months to go in the season. Liriano continued his recent dominance with seven strong innings, and Jose Tabata homered and drove in two runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. Liriano (12-4) allowed only two hits to offset his five walks and had six strikeouts. The left-hander improved to 7-1 with a 1.65 ERA in his last eight starts for the NL Central leaders. Last season, Liriano was a combined 6-12 with the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox. He has a hard time explaining his turnaround, which is a big reason why the Pirates hold a 1 1/2-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central. "What can I say?" he said. "Everything is going good for me and good for the team. Im not really thinking about it too much. Im just going out and pitching and trying to be aggressive and get people out. Its working out well for me and it is working out for well for the team because were winning." Tabata hit his first home run since May 11 -- a span of 112 plate appearances -- and also tripled while going 3 for 4 to raise his average to .266. Tabata has hit just three homers this season, which is why general manager Neal Huntington tried to trade for an outfielder before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, though without success. "Weve seen Jose swing the bat like this before and be productive over the last few years," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Hopefully, he will get hot." The Rockies put men on base in six of Lirianos seven innings but they went 0 for 9 against him with runners on, including five hitless at-bats with runners in scoring position. "When I walk people its because Im overthrowing," Liriano said. "When guys got on base, I told myself to slow down and make pitches, not try to do too much." Colorado lost for the fifth time in six games. "We had some opportunities early but like most of the good ones once he settled in he was tough," Rocckies manager Walt Weiss said. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Hats/. "He had a good changeup and his command was pretty good even though he walked some guys." Gaby Sanchez had two hits and two RBIs for Pittsburgh, while Jordy Mercer and Andrew McCutchen added two hits each. Fill-in closer Mark Melancon pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his sixth save. Jorge De La Rosa (10-6) pitched four-plus innings and gave up three runs on six hits while striking out three and walking two. The outing came a day after Rockies owner Dick Monfort said Colorado would exercise De La Rosas $11 million club option for 2014. "Jorge didnt have very good command," Weiss said. "It was a struggle for him from the start." The Pirates scored one run each in the third through seventh innings to take a 5-0 lead. In the third, Starling Marte led off with a single, stole second, took third on Jordy Mercers groundout and scored on Andrew McCutchens double. Tabata led off the fourth by homering over the 375 sign in right-centre for his third of the season. Sanchez hit run-scoring singles in both the fifth and seventh innings, while Tabata led off the sixth with a triple and scored on Josh Harrisons squeeze bunt. Colorado finally scored a pair in the eighth on consecutive RBI singles by Troy Tulowitzki and Michael Cuddyer, who returned to the team after missing the previous two games because of a family emergency. NOTES: Colorado LF Carlos Gonzalez was not in the lineup for a fourth straight game with a sprained right middle finger but hopes to play Sunday. ... Rockies 1B Todd Helton, who has normally been rested twice a week, played in nine straight games until being rested Saturday. ... Colorado RHP Roy Oswalt, on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, was forced to cut short a simulated game because of tightness in the leg. ... Pittsburgh C Russell Martin sat out for the second time in three games because of left knee soreness. ... The Pirates will start RHP A.J. Burnett (4-7, 2.86 ERA) on Sunday against RHP Juan Nicasio (6-4, 4.92) in the three-game series finale. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M Corpus-Christi coach Willis Wilson paid Texas A&M center Tyler Davis the ultimate compliment on Monday night -- that others should mirror Daviss game. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Derrick-Shelby-Jersey/ .Tyler Daviss effort speaks for itself, Wilson said. A lot of big kids around the country can learn from the way he plays.Davis scored a career-high 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting as A&M defeated TAUM-CC 86-69 on Monday night.The Aggies (5-2) led 45-33 at halftime and kept the Islanders (5-2) at arms length the rest of the way, overwhelming their undersized opponent down low and outscoring TAMU-CC 40-24 on points in the paint.My teammates just found me in the right spots, Davis said. It was my job to post hard and create angles for the guards, and they got me the ball so I could score.As for that career high in points, and Wilsons commendation?Were supposed to play well inside against smaller teams, Davis said with a shrug. I felt like we attacked the inside.Admon Gilder tied his season high with 17 points for A&M and Tonny Trocha-Morelos scored 13. Cole Martinez had 13 points and Rashawn Thomas added 12 for the Islanders.The Islanders outrebounded the Aggies 39-31, but committed 16 turnovers, including seven by Thomas, and A&M outscored TAMU-CC 19-11 on points off turnovers.We didnt even win the rebound war in this game, Davis said. We lost by eight. Tomorrow our focus is going to be putting bodies on people.Texas A&M had 21 assists on 31 field goals and shot 54 percent overall.We didnt defend like we wanted to, maybe because of not playing for seven or eight days, A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. I just know we need to get better defensively.BIG PICTUREThe Aggies looked rusty after having not played for more than a week (a Nov. 27 loss to UCLA for a second-place finish in the Wooden Legacy), and failed to distance themselves from their outmanned opponent until very late in the contest. A&M plays three home games in six days this week, however, so rust should not be an issue by this weekend.The Islanders, whose only other loss was at Cal Poly on Saturday, kept their contest against a Southeastern Conference foe competitive throughout. They also considered it good experience for an upcoming big-name game, at Oklahoma State on Dec. 22.UP NEXTAfter playing three consecutive games away from Reed Arena, Texas A&M will play its second straight home game on Wednesday night against Denver.TAMU-CC returns to Corpus Christi, where theyre undefeated in four games, to host St. Marys (of Texas) on Friday.STAT OF THE NIGHTThe teams combined for 11 blocks, including seven by A&M. Aggies guard D.J. Hogg collected a season-high three rejections, after entering the game with five in six prior contests.TURNING POINTThe Aggies led by three points (28-25) with a little more than six minutes remaining in the first half when Aggies guard JC Hampton capitalized on a turnover by Rashawn Thomas with a layup. In the following couple of minutes A&M increased its lead to double digits, where it would stay the rest of the way.HE SAID ITYoure going to have a hard time beating anybody, let alone on the road, if you cant get to the free-throw line more than six times. TAMU-CC coach Willis Wilson on the Islanders shooting 6 of 6 from the free-throw line compared to 16 of 24 for the Aggies.HE SAID IT, TOO:These games are all preparation for SEC play. So theyre as important as any games were playing.A&M center Tyler Davis on facing opponents from smaller conferences.http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Matt-Schaub-Jersey/ . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Tevin-Coleman-Jersey/ . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-De-Vondre-Campbell-Jersey/ . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. LONDON -- Liverpool thrashed Barcelona 4-0 Saturday in the International Champions Cup friendly, providing a boost for manager Juergen Klopp as he focuses on domestic success in his first full season in charge.With little at stake for either side, Liverpool dominated against a Barcelona team containing Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, who was facing his former club for the first time.In front of almost 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium, Liverpool went ahead after a well-worked move in the 15th minute saw Sadio Mane score his first goal after his transfer from Southhampton in June for a reported 34 million pounds ($45 million). http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Mohamed-Sanu-Jersey/. ivock Origi scored two goals after the break, with one from on-loan midfielder Marko Grujic.Klopp already has some injury concerns, however. Striker Daniel Sturridge (hip) was missing from the starting line-up, while James Milner (heel) limped off injured before halftime.Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League and will not play in Europe this season. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
