Nick Compton wants England to build on their first Test victory over Sri Lanka ahead of the second Investec Test in Durham, live on Sky Sports. Evan Engram Jersey . England won the opening Test of the three-match series at Headingley by an innings and 88 runs and Compton is keen for them to continue that success when the second Test gets under way on Friday.Compton told Sky Sports News HQ: Weve got to build on the first Test. It was great to be part of that win - to win a Test in three days is fantastic. Compton faced just three balls in the first Test at Headingley Compton, who was dismissed for a duck as England only batted once at Headingley, added: It would have been nice to score some runs in the first Test but theres been some quality preparation and thats where my focus is, so when I get my chance Im really on it.Despite the margin of the victory, Compton said England were not taking anything for granted. We look back at Englands last Test at Durham, where they beat Australia by 74 runs in the 2013 Ashes I think were a team that feels confident but realise weve got another Test on our hands - and every Test is tough, he added.Compton also had some sympathy for Sri Lanka following their first Test defeat in conditions which suited Englands bowling attack. James Anderson was in lethal form in Leeds, taking 10 wickets over the two innings I think the English batsmen, facing Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson in these conditions, would find them pretty tough, he added.Weve got home advantage, they are going to want to adjust and look at some of the replays of the conditions at Headingley and build on it. Theyre a young team. Also See: Beefy backs Root, Broad Willis: Id play Ball Stokes a big miss Blistering Bairstow stats Carl Banks Jersey . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. Mike Jordan Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. SEATTLE -- Rex Ryan and the rest of the Buffalo Bills were furious at how Walt Anderson and his officiating crew handled the final moments of the first half that had a bigger impact in the final seconds of the fourth quarter.The Bills ended up losing 31-25 to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, the third straight loss for Buffalo. The Bills had a chance at the victory but Tyrod Taylors fourth-down pass into the end zone in the closing seconds fell incomplete.Buffalo potentially would have only needed a field goal to tie the game at that point if the end of the first half had been handled differently by Andersons crew.Mistakes were made and Ryan was angry.Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous, Ryan said.What set off Ryans anger was Anderson not calling Seattles Richard Sherman for unnecessary roughness when he crashed into Buffalo kicker Dan Carpenter as he attempted at 53-yard field goal with 3 seconds left in the half. Sherman was instead called for offside and after some confusion and a Buffalo penalty Carpenter missed a 54-yard attempt on the final play of the half.The end of the first half was confusing for everyone involved. From trainers running on the field to players running for the locker room, there was enough confusion to leave everyone scratching their heads.And the final result of the chaos left Buffalo completely unsatisfied.It was wrong, Ryan said. Its clear what happened, the guy roughed our kicker. Jumps offside, roughs our kicker and then because we had to go out and attend to him, and it wasnt called `roughing the kicker, then we had to spike the ball so that we could come back in and kick. We needed a little time there but, we saw him go down and our trainers ran out. ... From an officiating standpoint, I think you can do a little bit better than that.Andersons explanation was Sherman was called for being unabated to the kicker and that his actions crashing into Carpenter did not rise to the level of unnecessary roughness.I didnt feel like the actions and the contact, because we were shutting the play down, warranted a foul, Anderson said.NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino disagreed and tweeted during the game that Sherman should have been penalized for unnecessary roughness and expanded his view of the play in comments to NFL Network. Olivier Vernon Jersey. The referee in looking at it was coming in to kill the play and didnt think the contact was enough for unnecessary roughness. Obviously when you look at the tape that is not the case, Blandino told NFL Network.Sherman said he did not hear a whistle and was just trying to block the kick.I went for the ball. The holder still had it so I didnt hear (any) whistle, Sherman said. They say play to blow of the whistle so I went and tried to block the kick and I got it. I think I got it and the kicker somehow kept going. I assumed he was going to stop when he saw me going for the ball but he didnt.By not calling a personal foul against Sherman, what played out in the ensuing moments also put Buffalo at a disadvantage. Carpenter appeared to be hurt bringing trainers on the field.Because the trainers took the field and Buffalo was out of timeouts, Carpenter had to leave for one play. Buffalo spiked the ball with 1 second left to set up a 48-yard attempt, but the Bills were penalized for delay of game with the umpire standing over the ball. That backed up the Bills five yards and Carpenters 54-yard attempt on the final play was wide right.Blandino said the play clock should have been reset.It looked like the play clock had run down probably to five or six seconds so we want to reset the play clock there when the officials are actually conversing and delaying the snap, Blandino said.Its not the first time officiating has become the focus of a Monday night game in Seattle. In 2012, the Fail Mary game between Green Bay and Seattle finished with Golden Tate catching a disputed touchdown on the final play of the game. Last year, Seattle pulled out a win over Detroit when the Lions were about to score and officials missed Seattles K.J. Wright hitting a fumble out of the end zone for a touchback in the closing seconds. The ball should have gone back to Detroit.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '

SEOUL, South Korea -- The PGA Tour expanded its Asia swing to three tournaments Monday by adding a new event in South Korea with a limited field and a $9. Wholesale Browns Jerseys Online .25 million purse.The size of the purse for the 78-man field at The CJ Cup would trail only The Players Championship, the majors, and the World Golf Championships. The field would be comprised of the top 60 players available from the previous years FedEx Cup. The other 18 will be determined by exemption to be decided later.The CJ Cup is scheduled for Oct. 19-22 at Nine Bridges, located on Jeju Island off South Koreas southern coast.The tournament will be in the middle of the Asia swing, which starts with the CIMB Classic in Malaysia (Oct. 12-15) and ends with the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai on Oct. 26-29.The PGA Tour first went to South Korea a year ago for the Presidents Cup at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon.We had such a phenomenal experience in Korea last year at the Presidents Cup, and we hoped an official, permanent event in this great country would be the result of that success, said Jay Monahan, the PGA Tours deputy commissioner.Title sponsor CJ Corporation agreed to a 10-year deal.CJ is a South Korean conglomerate that already is involved in golf. It sponsored an LPGA Tour event at Nine Bridges from 2002 to 2005, and it was the sponsor of an Asian Tour event, the CJ Invitational, from 2011 to 2013. It also sponsors Korean players such as Byeong Hun An and Si Woo Kim.The PGA Tour has 12 players from South Korea on its international roster this year, second only to the 15 from Australia among countries outside the United States. Last year there were 20 South Koreans who were members of either the PGA Tour or the Tour.Partnering with a respected business leader like the CJ Corporation means this tournament will be on the Korean sports landscape for years to come, Monahan said. We have a tremendous population of Korean golfers on the PGA Tour, and we anticipate that will continue as The CJ Cup ... inspires a new generation of players, not only in Korea, but also around the world.The tournament will be run by the PGA Tours championship management division. The CIMB Classic in Malaysia is co-sanctioned with the Asian Tour, while the HSBC Champions is run by the International Federation of PGA Tours, with the European Tour serving as the lead tour. Tavierre Thomas Jersey . Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. Authentic Cleveland Browns Jerseys . Ancelotti says Ronaldo has recovered from a hamstring injury but "but he doesnt feel comfortable yet so we wont risk him." Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. While the NHL holds its annual monthlong Hockey Fights Cancer campaign, the Ottawa Senators are a reminder the fight doesnt stop.The Senators have been particularly hard hit by the disease. Assistant coach Mark Reeds died last year at 55, former general manager Bryan Murray is fighting terminal colon cancer and public address announcer Stuntman Stu Schwartz has battled leukemia. Recently, goaltender Craig Andersons wife, Nicholle, was diagnosed with cancer.Its been a rough few years for us, and a lot of things have happened to a lot of people that we are very close to, captain Erik Karlsson said. Its one of those things that weve been unfortunate to have to deal with. But I think that the organization -- the management, the coaches and all the players -- has handled it as good as possible.While theres no good way to deal with this, Murray made it a point with his announcement two years ago that even though cancer would end his life, he was determined to save others. Murray, now 73, crusaded for men to get colonoscopies and relayed phone calls he got from several former players who listened to that plea.Anderson has remained more private about his wifes battle. On the ice, he has been Ottawas best player since returning from a leave of absence to be with Nicholle, going 4-2-1 with a 1.54 goals-against average and .955 save percentage.There was an initial shock. It was emotional for everybody, coach Guy Boucher said. But to be honest with you, right now its every day a normal day. He wants to be all about hockey when he comes to the rink, and thats how we leave it.The Senators have, for the most part, done a good job of limiting shots on Anderson, a recipe to help him play like the elite starter they believe he is. Defense, not scoring, has to be the hallmark of Ottawas game.We want to make his game a normal game, not a game where he has to every game live with 35 shots and above, Boucher said. That really wears out a goaltender, and we certainly dont want to have that.Off the ice, teammates are rallying around the Andersons by going about their daily jobs.Hes here, his wife wants him to be here, forward Mark Stone said. Were taking it normal, and were just trying to play and win hockeey games. Seth DeValve Jersey. OLYMPICS DECISION LOOMINGOfficials from the NHL, NHL Players Association, International Ice Hockey Federation and International Olympic Committee are meeting Wednesday in New York to discuss participation in the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The primary issue is paying for NHL players travel, accommodations and insurance, which has been the IOCs responsibility for the past five Olympics but something it has said it wont do this time.For us I think thats the big problem, American-born center Ryan Kesler of the Anaheim Ducks said in September. We got guys going over there and the NHLs stalling the season to go over and play in the Olympics. We dont see any revenue from that or anything, so I think the least that they can do is pay for our insurance.IIHF president Rene Fasel volunteered to pay those costs, but NHL commissioner Gary Bettman argued it would take away from grassroots programs around the world. Bettman would like a decision by January.STREAKINGA 2-1 overtime victory over the Capitals on Tuesday night was the Blue Jackets sixth in eight games.

Editors note: Part 1 of ESPNs future of sports betting series focused on the paths to legalization in the United States and what the resulting marketplace could look like. Wholesale Washington Redskins Jerseys . Part 2 looked at future bettors -- humans and robots. Part 3 focuses on the pitfalls, or what could go wrong if sports betting is legalized.When Dr. Christopher Hunt first began working at the University of Sydney Gambling Treatment Clinic in Australia, he recalls seeing one or two troubled sports bettors every six months.Today, after what he calls the gamblization of sports in Australia, Hunt says sports bettors make up one-third of the clinics patients.If sports betting is legalized, will the United States be headed for a future with increased addiction potentially spurned by a rampant barrage of gambling advertising? Proponents point to the expected economic benefits and increased game-integrity protection of legalization. Opponents say those perceived pluses wont outweigh the pitfalls.For the two-thirds-plus of Americans who rarely or never engage in commercial gambling, the change will be negative, said Michael K. Fagan, a former federal prosecutor and current adjunct professor at Washington University School of Law. Anyone fairly and comprehensively evaluating the unbiased, independent academic, health-care and economic evidence readily finds that it weighs in favor of continuing prohibitions on commercial sports gambling.Australia, a country which legalized sports betting around the turn of the century, is a prime example of what America wants to avoid.Widespread legalization of online sports betting arrived in Australia in 2001, but even in a culture with a longtime acceptance of gambling as a form of entertainment, it didnt explode onto the market. In the beginning, mom-and-pop bookmakers competed against the government-owned sportsbook TAB. Teams entered standard sponsorship deals with betting operators, and sports commentators casually began referencing odds during broadcasts. Overall, though, the impact of legalization was minimal and sports betting was looked at as a niche product with niche problems. But trouble loomed.Around 2009, Australians began to notice a dramatic shift in the atmosphere surrounding sports and how the games were presented by the media. International bookmaking companies, with much larger marketing budgets, began arriving on the scene. Soon, advertising for betting could be found near schools and on public transportation. The gambling talk during game broadcasts went from subtle to constant, with commercials from sportsbooks bleeding into the media coverage. At one point, one of Australias biggest bookies was a regular in the broadcast booth.All of a sudden, it was like you couldnt talk about sports without making reference to what the odds were, what the prices were, whether they thought this bet was value or this bet was value, said Hunt, a clinical psychologist. It was what we came to call the gamblization of sport.In 2014 and 2015, Aussies bet $7.1 billion and lost nearly $815 million on sports, according to the recently released 32nd edition of Australian Gambling Statistics. Both figures are records and sharp spikes from the previous year. The data mirrors the increase of sports bettors seeking help for gambling addiction.Advertising is at the heart of the debate in Australia. According to gambling researcher Dr. Sally Gainsbury, the Australian market became so flooded with gambling advertising in recent years that consumers began complaining.?It was similar to what you were seeing [in the U.S.] with the [daily] fantasy advertising, Gainsbury said. Sports events are just now completely dominated by sports betting advertising. All throughout the sporting events youre seeing these complete bombardments of advertising for betting. And community members are now saying, Hey, my kids are watching this. Gambling was supposed to be put be off to the corner and now its front and center.The United Kingdom, home to one of the most mature legal sports betting markets in the world, took steps over the past decade to combat socially irresponsible gambling advertising. Betting and gaming companies in the U.K. have been permitted to advertise across all media since 2007, under strict guidelines monitored by the Advertising Standards Authority. The regulations require that advertisements for gambling must not portray, condone or encourage behaviour that is socially irresponsible or could lead to financial, social or emotional harm. Ads likely to appeal to anyone under 18 or that link gambling to seduction, sexual success or enhanced attractiveness also are prohibited.Aussie politicians and regulators are pushing for federal reform to restrict sports betting advertising. But bookmakers counter that if the rules are too strict, they wont be able to compete with unregulated bookmakers.Advertising is this key and thats what jurisdictions really have to understand when they regulate [sports betting], is the extent to which they enable advertising, said Gainsbury, a faculty member of the University of Sydney and an editor for International Gambling Studies.An increase in problem gamblers?In the weeks leading up to the 2015 NFL season, U.S. daily fantasy sites DraftKings and FanDuel ran a television ad every 90 seconds. At the peak of the daily fantasy sports (DFS) advertising surge, they combined to air almost as many ads (1,285) as there are minutes in the day, according to, which tracks advertising data. The CEOs of both companies recently signed settlements with the New York Attorney Generals Office, which found each company had targeted users with a propensity for gambling and addiction.Fagan, the former assistant U.S. attorney in Missouri, who successfully prosecuted offshore sports gambling website a decade ago, said the daily fantasy media explosion highlighted the concerns about any future with widespread legal sports betting.Expanded and heavily marketed sports gambling significantly shifts the focus of fans from the athletic contest to the pursuit of personal profit, Fagan told ESPN. Other non-wager-determinative aspects of sport wind up diminished. This means the increased viewership sought by greed-driven, short-sighted league and network executives will be driven to a marked degree by money fans, not sports fans who will have been converted, in whole or part, to money fans, and this will work a change in life in America.Only the gamblers, in the short term, and those profiting off their losses, in the long term, will see this change as a positive one.Other experts agree.Sam Skolnik, author of High Stakes: The Rising Cost of Americas Gambling Addiction, believes the only thing truly inevitable about the future of sports betting in the U.S. is that similar pitfalls to what Australia is experiencing will follow any expansion of legal sports betting.Voters, state legislators and other stakeholders should start thinking about the potential downsides of what would be a major expansion of legalized gambling, Skolnik said. Youre going to have this pool of new gamblers, and there is going to be a subset of problem gamblers. This is extremely painful for them and not just their families. Its for their employers, the whole communities that will pay the costs of increased gambling addiction.In the U.S., gambling addiction peaked at about 2.7 percent in the late 1990s and early 2000s, according to the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG). It has been on the decline ever since, even as gambling has expanded across the nation, and has now settled around 2 percent. At state-run problem gambling hotlines, calls from sports bettors are rare. In 2014, less than 1 percent of callers to the Nevadas gambling hotline identified sports betting as their most problematic form of gambling.In fact, the NCPG does not oppose the legalization of sports betting and will announce a resolution later this year that will lay out recommended safeguards for an expanded regulated market.Currently, U.S. sports bettors outside of Nevada and Delaware gamble in a massive unregulated market. They are often offered informal credit and are allowed to bet until they are up or down an agreed-upon amount, $1,000, for example. While convenient for bettors and bookies, credit betting is also dangerous.Keith Whyte, executive director of the NCPG, says unsecured credit betting puts people at risk for developing a gambling problem.The average problem gambler that seeks treatment has gambling debt twice their average annual income, Whyte said. The vast majority of that does not come from formal casino credit. Its either personal credit card or credit from a bookie, informal credit. [For problem gamblers], the substance abuse is money. If youre at risk for a gambling problem and youre betting on unsecured credit, if and when you start to lose, you can rapidly find yourself in severe problems.A shift in integrity of the game issuesAt a September gaming conference, four respected Las Vegas sportsbook directors were asked how many games in the past three years they had deemed suspicious enough to contact authorities.None, said Bob Scucci, a veteran bookmaker who ran the Stardust during its prime and is now in charge of all the Boyd Gaming sportsbooks in Nevada.The other three bookmakers nodded in agreement. If games are being fixed, no ones seeing it in Las Vegas. Nevertheless, nearly a century after the infamous Black Sock scandal of 1919, the negative link between gambling and game integrity remains the No. 1 concern for sports leagues.But does the current environment better protect the integrity of the games, when the bulk of the money bet on sports in the U.S. takes place in an unregulated market?Challenges to game integrity were cited repeatedly in the lead-up to Congress passing the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 1992. PASPA was designed to protect sports leagues from the perceived ills of sports betting spreading across the country.But that argument has now been somewhat flipped recently. As discussed in part 1 of this series, professional sports leagues are increasingly of the belief that a regulated sports betting market that allows wagers to be transparently tracked would help protect the integrity of their games, not hurt it.This is consistent with recent partnerships with big data companies by the professional sports leagues, representing a profound shift in the leagues position on line monitoring, the task of tracking gambling data in an attempt to identify unusual moves or unnatural money.The NFL, NBA and NHL have deals with Sportradar, a Switzerland-based conglomerate that is the parent company of Betradar, a major player in the global sports betting industry, and Major League Baseball has partnered with Genius Sports, a multi-faceted gambling data firm located in London. Even the NCAA has a commercial affiliation with Sportradar, with the Pac-12 conference using the services of CG Analytics, a subsidiary of a prominent Nevada sportsbook.The issue of sports integrity is something that always comes up, said Michelle Minton, consumer policy specialist who has opined on sports betting legalization as part of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a Libertarian think tank. The argument is if we legalize sports gambling, the games will be rigged, people will be taking dives, et cetera. I think thats a red herring argument. I would make the argument that its less likely to cause match-fixing.Legalization wont, however, eliminate attempts to compromise games for gambling purposes. There will be gambling scandals in the future; the hope is that maybe theyll be detected sooner.Its big money, Minton said of the American sports betting market. Anywhere theres big money there [are] going to be scandals. In the financial industry, there [are] always scandals. Im not sure why with gambling, its always considered such a landmark case every time a player or handful of players do something wrong. Theyre just people, and people do things wrong all the time in every industry.Tennis, which is second only to soccer in terms of global betting interest, has dealt with significant match-fixing issues, raising red flags for experts.Who exactly is supposed to be responsible for such oversight and policing? Michael Mewshaw, an industry expert and the author of several books, questioned. As we see in the NFL, its had no end of trouble simply enforcing the rule about properly inflated footballs.Setting the stage for the inevitableWhether in three years, five or a full decade, the normalization process that leads America down a path toward nationwide regulated sports betting is expected to be complete. With it, passive fans rooting for a favorite team or player will increasingly be replaced by active sports consumers with a financial stake in the action. Technological changes, evolving societal views and increased media coverage have contributed to wider acceptance of sports betting.Over the course of ESPNs four-month inquiry, the inference from the evidence was clear: The vast majority of the key stakeholders -- operators, bettors, broadcasters, advertisers and sports leagues -- are positioning themselves for Adam Silvers inevitable arrival of expanded legalized sports betting. Indeed, in 2013, the NCAA, NBA, NFL, NHL and Major League Baseball filed a crystal ball-worthy document in the New Jersey litigation and argued that they have an essential interest in how their games are perceived and the degree to which their sporting events become betting events.Certain law enforcement officials are on board, too.The current U.S. approach to sports betting is not working, wrote a five-person panel of former federal and state law enforcement officers in a 15-page report released by the American Gaming Association last month. An open, transparent, regulated sports betting market boosts law enforcement oversight.Such conclusions stand in sharp contrast to statements like those made by former U.S. Senator and New York Knicks player Bill Bradley, the chief supporter of PASPA during Congressional hearings in 1991.Athletes are not roulette chips, but sports gambling treats them as such, wrote Bradley in a 1992 academic article. If the dangers of state sponsored sports betting are not confronted, the character of sports and youngsters view of them could be seriously threatened.Now, NBA players, led by their union, are looking at sports betting legalization as a commercial opportunity.Were all on the same page as Adam [Silver] and the NBA, Jordan Schlachter, chief marketing officer at the National Basketball Players Association, told ESPN during the summer. Its an opportunity to grow the game. Its an opportunity to grow the exposure of our players. Were in the business of supporting our players and looking out for their best interest.Sen. Bradleys position has now been turned on its head, with the dangers of massive unregulated American sports betting market a focus now more than ever.PASPA turns 24 years old on Oct. 28. Most experts dont see the federal ban on nationwide sports betting celebrating its 30th. The next few years will reveal what the epitath on PASPAs tombstone will say and whats in store for the future of sports betting in America. Stitched Washington Redskins Jerseys . Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. Art Monk Jersey . Darren Helm scored on Detroits sixth attempt in the shootout and then Jonas Gustavsson stopped Andrew Shaws shot, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming.Steve Bruce continued his unbeaten run with Aston Villa, but they were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton at the Amex in the Sky Bet Championship. Nathan Baker headed Villa in front after 20 minutes on Friday night before the Seagulls pulled level through a fine Glenn Murray effort on the stroke of half-time.Brighton may have dominated possession on the night, but it was Villa who had the of the better chances. Unfortunately for the away fans, though, they could not find another breakthrough and Bruce added a third draw to his three wins from six games in charge. Baker (left) scored with a header after 20 minutes Brighton, meanwhile, closed the gap on league leaders Newcastle, but the Magpies could extend the gap to five points when they play away at Leeds on Sunday, live on Sky Sports. Brighton started the better of the two sides, but it was Villa who opened the scoring thanks to Bakers header with the first real chance of the game after 20 minutes.Villa had not really got forward until they won a free-kick 35 yards out, and Albert Adomahs floated ball in found the head of Baker, who rose highest in the area to glance the ball past David Stockdale. Glenn Murray equalised from the edge of the area The home side continued to push forward but struggled to get their front two of Murray and Sam Baldock into the game until the 44th minute when the pair combined to devastating effect.First, Murray received the ball from Steve Sidwell then played a lovely one-two with Baldock before firing into the bottom corner with a fierce low strike from the edge of the area for his 150th league goal. The second half started at breakneck pace as both sides pushed for the next goal, and it was Murray who went closest just after the hour, heading narrowly over the bar for Brighton after Baldock had lifted the ball into his path.Villa boss Bruce threw on Jack Grealish midway through the second half and the young midfielder made an immediate impact as his quality on the ball helped the away side to dominate. Shane Duffy is challenged by Gabriel Agbonlahor In a period of pressure, Grealish saw two shots from the edge of the areaa deflected narrowly wide, while Jonathan Kodjia rattled the crossbar with one header before forcing a fine fingertip save from David Stockdale with another. Maurice Harris Jersey. Brighton substitute Jamie Murphy then forced a fine save from Pierluigi Gollini late on, but it was Villa who always looked the more likely to score again.Chris Hughtons side held on, though, and Villa missed their chance to climb into the top half of the table, sitting in 13th ahead of the rest of the weekends action. Brighton manager Chris Hughton claims he was happy to claim a draw against Aston Villa given the quality that Steve Bruces side possesses Brighton boss Chris Hughton:I thought we were very unfortunate to go 1-0 down when we did. We were up against a side that were very compact and pressed the ball, but didnt really have a goal threat in that first half period [before they scored]. It was very against the run of play.But as the game grew on they showed their quality and it probably got to the stage at 1-1 where I was reasonably happy with a draw. Theyre a very good side and have players who have come in for big fees to play in the Premier League, thats what we were up against.They showed what a big threat they are and why theyll be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce:Its the best weve played in the second half because to come here is never going to be easy, [Brighton] are a very good side who have been playing very, very well.Were a bit disappointed we didnt see it out until half-time, but the way we responded in the second half, I can only congratulate them on a really good performance. With a little bit more luck maybe we could have gone away with all three.Weve worked meticulously on the shape and organisation, and with the flair players weve got were always likely to score a goal, and touch wood at the moment its going okay.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

ATLANTA (AP) — Freddie Freeman spent the previous four seasons playing for an Atlanta team that averaged 90 losses a year.Now that the Braves are back challenging for a division title Mike Schmidt Jersey , the All-Star first baseman knows his club can’t afford any long losing streaks.“It’s been four days, so I thought this was a big win for our team,” Freeman said. “I thought we played a quality baseball game today and hopefully we can carry that into this Philly series.”Freeman hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs, Touki Toussaint pitched into the sixth inning and the NL East-leading Braves snapped a four-game skid with a 7-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.It was a critical win for Atlanta, which is 5½ games ahead of the second-place Phillies and opens a four-game home series against them on Thursday. Philadelphia blanked the New York Mets 4-0 on Wednesday night.The Braves have a magic number of six over Philadelphia to clinch their first division title since 2013.St. Louis, which had won three straight, trails Milwaukee by three games for the top NL wild card but leads Colorado by 1½ games for the second spot. The Rockies lost 5-2 at Dodger Stadium.Atlanta closer A.J. Minter, working in a non-save situation in the ninth, walked two to load the bases, but he ended it by striking out Jose Martinez and getting Paul DeJong to pop up.Freeman’s 23rd homer, an opposite-field shot to left-center, put the Braves up 2-0 in the fourth against Jack Flaherty. Freeman went 3 for 3 and is hitting .405 over his past 11 games.“He’s getting the ball in the air, and it’s carrying, and that’s always a good thing,” manager Brian Snitker said. “That’s a welcomed sight if we can get him going.”Toussaint (2-1) allowed five hits, two runs, three walks and struck out eight in 5 2/3 innings. A rookie making his fourth career start Mitch Williams Jersey , Toussaint was chased after Yadier Molina’s RBI single cut the lead to 5-2 in the sixth.“We survived the first couple of innings with essentially zero fastball command, then suddenly we had some decent command of it and were able to flip the script and challenge guys with some early contacts,” Braves catcher Tyler Flowers said. “If he gets ahead of guys, it’s a tough arsenal to defend.”Flaherty (8-8) gave up five hits, a season-high five runs and two walks with six strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. Facing the Braves for the first time, Flaherty began the game as the NL rookie leader in strikeouts, winning percentage and opponents’ batting average. He had gone 4-1 with 1.69 ERA in his previous eight starts.Flowers doubled to begin the three-run fifth and scored on a wild pitch. Freeman chased Flaherty with an RBI single, and the lead swelled to four runs on a double steal by Ender Inciarte and Freeman. The Braves successfully challenged to get the call overturned that Freeman had been tagged out.“I thought things went well early, then Freeman put a good swing on a ball and then in that one inning things kind of got away,” Flaherty said. “I put a couple of guys on base with walks and then Freeman put another good swing on the ball.”Atlanta added a run to make it 6-2 in the seventh. Inciarte doubled and scored when second baseman Kolten Wong threw errantly to first on a potential double play grounder.Jedd Gyorko’s sacrifice fly in the eighth cut the lead to 6-3. Flowers’ eighth homer in the bottom half of the inning made it 7-3.At least for one game, Atlanta played well at home, where it had dropped 14 of 18 and has won just one of its past seven series.Freeman, who became the first Braves first baseman with 20 homers and 10 stolen bases in a season since Dale Murphy in 1978, wants his teammates to enjoy the pennant race and not press.“It’s fun. It really is,” Freeman said. “This is what you work for six, seven months. To be in this situation this year, it’s the greatest feeling there is.”OUCHHarrison Bader was hit in the back of the helmet by a pitch in the third , but he convinced St. Louis’ trainers that he wasn’t affected and jogged to first. Going deep against Toussaint for his 12th homer in the fifth, Bader said he felt no measure of revenge. Toussaint wasn’t trying to hit him.“The two are completely independent of each other, honestly,” Bader said. “I was just trying to make a good swing.”UP NEXTCardinals: RHP John Gant (7-6, 3.53 ERA) will start when St. Louis, following a day off, opens a three-game home series against San Francisco. He allowed six hits and six runs in his previous start, a 17-4 loss to the Dodgers.Braves: RHP Kevin Gausman (10-10, 3.92 ERA) will make his ninth start since being acquired in a trade with Baltimore as Atlanta tries to pad its lead on the Phillies. He is 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA in four starts at SunTrust Park. CHICAGO (AP) — No team in the National League piled up more victories than the Chicago Cubs through 162 games. That seems like small consolation now.Kyle Hendricks gave up a tiebreaking single to Tony Wolters in the 13th inning, sending the Cubs to a 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies in a marathon wild-card game on Tuesday night.Chicago lost two home games with a chance to reach the NL Division Series. The Cubs scored a total of two runs over 22 innings, dropping a tiebreaker to Milwaukee for the NL Central championship and then getting knocked out of the playoffs by the Rockies.They squandered a dominant start by Jon Lester, got shut down by Kyle Freeland and wasted several big scoring opportunities. Hendricks came in to retire the final two batters in the 12th and got the first two in the 13th before running into trouble.Trevor Story grounded a single through the left side and Gerardo Parra lined one to right, putting runners at first and third. Wolters — who came into the game as part of a double switch in the 12th — then drove an RBI single up the middle.In the bottom half, Terrance Gore acted as if he was hit by a tight pitch leading off and ran to first before being ordered back to the box. The Cubs challenged the call to no avail. Gore, Baez and Albert Almora Jr. then struck out, bringing a marathon game and a difficult season to a fitting end.“We have had a lot of things go awry this year and in spite that have still tied for the most wins in the National League in a 162-game season,” manager Joe Maddon said. “Again Steve Carlton Jersey , that speaks to the quality of the player in the room of the and even though maybe the numbers offensively didn’t matchup, these guys put up 95 wins.”The Cubs had a long line of injuries and didn’t get the contributions they expected from some key players, including Yu Darvish and Kris Bryant. That didn’t stop them from going from 4 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in late May to leading the division by five in early September, only to have the Brewers tie them on the final weekend of the regular season.They got shut down by Jhoulys Chacin in a 3-1 tiebreaker loss to Milwaukee, then had to watch Colorado celebrate after winning the longest win-or-go home game in major league history.“All I can say is I’m extremely proud of how we’ve come together,” Kris Bryant said.It was a bitter end for a team that made the NLCS the previous three years and won a World Series in 2016 that ended a drought dating to 1908. A franchise that for decades was defined by heartache has more wins the past four seasons than any other team.The Cubs beat Pittsburgh in a wild-card game in 2015 after a 97-win breakout regular season that established them championship contenders. But the expectations since then have changed. And this loss stings.“In 2015, we were winning the wild-card game no matter what,” Rizzo said. “In 2018, I’d say fans were (ticked) that we were in the wild-card game. We had a chance to win the division and we didn’t. We’ve really flipped this culture here.”The Cubs — who finished fourth in the NL in runs despite being held to one or zero in 39 regular-season games, one fewer than Baltimore for most in the majors — managed just four hits in 6 2/3 innings against Freeland.Anthony Rizzo grounded into a double-play with two on in the sixth, and they left the bases loaded in the seventh when Jason Heyward struck out.Chicago had another chance in the 11th.Baez walked leading off against Seunghwan Oh and moved up on a sacrifice bunt by Almora. Daniel Murphy was intentionally walked and Baez got tagged out by Arenado on Willson Contreras‘ grounder to third.As Arenado applied the tag in the middle of the base path between second and third, Baez wrapped his arms around him. Arenado smiled and patted him rather than try a throw to first.Chris Rusin then retired pinch-hitter Victor Caratini on a grounder to first to end the inning.“At the end of the day, coming down the stretch I felt like we played good baseball,” Lester said. “I mean, it wasn’t like we beat ourselves. Sometimes you have to tip your hat to the opponent. You go 13 innings tonight against a really tough team and we come out on the short end of the stick, but I feel like we should have won that game.”

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers know all about performing in the postseason.Backed into a tough spot Saturday , the red-headed slugger delivered once again.Shut down for most of the afternoon, Los Angeles staged another late rally and Turner hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers for a 4-3 victory that evened the NL Championship Series at a game apiece.The high-powered Dodgers had two measly singles off Wade Miley before breaking through against one of baseball’s best bullpens. After forcing the Brewers to use six relievers in Milwaukee’s 6-5 victory Friday night, the NL West champions put that extended look to good use in Game 2, especially against faltering All-Star Jeremy Jeffress.“As long as we have outs left, we know we’re in the game,” Turner said.Milwaukee wasted a terrific performance by Miley in its first loss in three weeks, ending a 12-game winning streak that produced free burgers for its fans as part of a promotion by a local restaurant chain. Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw homered, and Lorenzo Cain robbed David Freese of a two-run drive with a leaping grab over the wall in center .Miley pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his second career playoff start and had two hits in his first multihit game since 2014.“We were in really good shape with the effort that Wade gave us,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “He pitched beautifully.”The best-of-seven series moves to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night. Walker Buehler pitches for Los Angeles and Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball for Milwaukee.Miley handed a 2-0 lead over to his bullpen and Shaw tacked on a solo drive in the sixth , delighting a yellow towel-waving crowd of 43,905 at Miller Park. But that was the last run for the Brewers, and the Dodgers finished off their rally this time around after nearly taking Game 1.Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game. Austin Barnes forced in another run with a bases-loaded walk off Jeffress, but the right-hander escaped when pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal bounced into a double play.The Dodgers went right back to work in the eighth. Chris Taylor reached on a leadoff single before Turner hit a long drive to left off Jeffress, admiring the ball with his bat pointed toward the sky before rounding the bases and participating in several different celebrations with his giddy teammates on his way to the dugout.Turner bounced back after striking out a career-worst four times in Game 1.“It felt good Kenta Maeda Jersey ,” Turner said. “I knew it was a homer, and it’s cool to run around the bases and see all your teammates going crazy, jumping up and down waiting for you.”Jeffress also struggled in Game 1, allowing two hits while only recording one out. He was charged with two runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings in three appearances in the Division Series against Colorado, including a blown save in the opener.“It’s intense baseball games, man,” Jeffress said. “They’re going to be like this for the rest of the postseason. We’re going to battle, they’re going to battle. Just be ready.”Los Angeles has scored eight runs against Milwaukee’s bullpen, all in the seventh inning or later.“The more you face the relievers, the easier it’s going to get,” Bellinger said.It was Turner’s seventh career playoff homer. He was co-MVP of the NLCS last year with Taylor when Los Angeles made it to the World Series for the first time since 1988.The Dodgers are making their sixth straight appearance in the playoffs while the upstart Brewers are in the postseason for the first time since 2011. That advantage in experience seemed to pay off — especially when Turner came up with the big blow.“He personifies everything that I believe in as a baseball player, as a professional. … He’s the glue for our club,” manager Dave Roberts said.Save for Yasiel Puig snapping his bat over his leg after striking out swinging with the bases loaded in the seventh, Los Angeles stayed steady as Milwaukee tried to hold on. Pedro Baez got four outs for the win, and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for the save. Jansen broke NL MVP-favorite Christian Yelich’s bat for a groundout with a runner on second for the final out.REMEMBER WHENFormer major league slugger Prince Fielder threw out a ceremonial first pitch. Fielder said Counsell helped him a lot when they played together in Milwaukee.“There was one time I was thinking about bunting and he told me if I bunt Matt Kemp Jersey , he’ll punch me in the face,” a chuckling Fielder said.UP NEXTChacin had his worst start of the season at Los Angeles on Aug. 2, allowing nine runs, eight earned, and five hits in 4 1/3 innings in a 21-5 loss. The veteran right-hander is 5-5 with a 4.96 ERA in 12 career starts at Dodger Stadium. Buehler is making his second career start against Milwaukee. The rookie right-hander tossed seven innings of five-hit ball in a 1-0 loss to the visiting Brewers on July 31. NEW YORK (AP) — Gleyber Torres came through for the Yankees on a day they welcomed newcomers Andrew McCutchen and Adeiny Hechavarria to the Bronx and got slugging catcher Gary Sanchez back from the disabled list.Torres hit a two-run homer and Masahiro Tanaka pitched seven strong innings for his first win since July, as New York beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Saturday.The Yankees got only two hits, but won for the 11th time in 15 games. New York has the second-best record in the majors, behind AL East-leading Boston.Torres hit his 22nd homer of the season and third since the start of the Yankees’ homestand on Monday, a stretch over which he’s batting .526 with eight RBIs.“He’s impacted our club in a profound way on both sides of the ball all year,” manager Aaron Boone said about Torres, a Rookie of the Year candidate.Torres connected in the fifth off Daniel Norris (0-3) for the Yankees’ first hit.McCutchen went 0 for 3 and struck out twice in his Yankees debut. The former NL MVP batted leadoff and played right field, a day after being acquired from San Francisco.“I didn’t have the game I wanted to have personally, the first one, but we got the win and that’s what’s most important,” McCutchen said. “All around it was a good day and it’s a day I’m not going to forget for sure.”Sanchez Rich Hill Jersey , who missed nearly six weeks with a recurring groin injury, went 0 for 4.“I thought he caught great today,” Boone said. “I thought he looked pretty much on time at the plate, so I thought a really good first day for him even though he didn’t get any results at the plate.”Hechavarria, traded from Pittsburgh to New York late Friday night, arrived at the ballpark about two hours before first pitch and entered at shortstop to start the ninth.“When I got the news it was about 12:30 at night so I was not really waiting for anything like that so it was a big surprise for me,” Hechavarria said through a translator. “I’ve got to thank God I’m here with a great team with a well-known history.”Tanaka (10-5) gave up one run and seven hits for his first victory since July 31. He was 0-3 with a 4.40 ERA in five August starts.“Just to be able to come up with the win today, I think that’s a really good start,” Tanaka said through a translator.Tanaka joined Andy Pettitte as the only pitchers in Yankees’ history to reach double-digit wins in each of their first five seasons in the majors.Jonathan Holder pitched a scoreless eighth and Dellin Betances notched his second save in the ninth.Norris, reinstated from the disabled list and making his first big league appearance since April 29, was pulled later in the fifth with cramping in his left calf. He had been sidelined for most of the season with a strained left groin.“He’s coming off this groin thing, the surgery, so you have to get him out of there. He tried to stay,” said Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire. “The ball came out of hands, it’s just the calf was cramping.”Norris fanned seven , including six of the first 10 New York batters.The Tigers loaded the bases in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly by Victor Martinez.CALL-UPSBoth clubs made additional moves before the game with rosters expanding from 25 to 40.New York recalled RHP Luis Cessa and INF Tyler Wade from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and signed lefty reliever Stephen Tarpley to a major league contract. Wade appeared as a pinch-runner in the seventh, stole a base and remained in the game. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment.Detroit recalled RHP Sandy Baez from Double-A Erie.THAT’S A FIRSTBetances fanned Jeimer Candelario to start the ninth, becoming the first reliever in major league history to record at least 100 strikeouts in five consecutive seasons.“It means a lot, honestly,” Betances said about the feat. “From 2014 I’ve been able to stay healthy which is the key.”IT TAKES TWOSaturday’s game was New York’s third game with two or fewer hits this season, and their first win with less than three hits since May 27, 2017, versus Oakland.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: SS Didi Gregorius (left heel contusion) sprinted on a treadmill, fielded grounders and took batting practice. GM Brian Cashman said that a more realistic return date for Gregorius could be Friday in Seattle as opposed to Monday at Oakland. … OF Clint Frazier (migraines) will be re-evaluated after finishing the remaining minor league games available to rehab in. … LHP Aroldis Chapman (left knee tendinitis) continues to receive treatment but there is still no timetable for his return.UP NEXTTigers: LHP Matthew Boyd (8-12, 4.22 ERA) will make his first career appearance at Yankee Stadium in Sunday’s series finale.Yankees: RHP Lance Lynn (8-9, 4.84 ERA) tries to get back on track after allowing 13 runs in 15 innings over his last three starts.

The NFL is pledging $100 million to player safety as concerns about concussions shadow the game. Mats Naslund Jersey .NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wrote a letter announcing the funding and outlining a new initiative called Play Safe, Play Smart on the programs website.Goodell wrote that the goal of the initiative is to drive progress in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of head injuries, enhance medical protocols and further improve the way the game is taught and played by all who love it.The NFL has a troubled history around the topic of brain research and concussions.For nearly two decades, the league ran a series of scientific experiments, formed its own research arm and published 16 papers about football and head injuries. The central conclusion -- that NFL players dont get brain damage -- led to public criticism, Congressional hearings and, in 2009, the abandonment of the project.More recently, in May, congressional investigators concluded that at least a half-dozen top NFL health officials waged an improper, behind-the-scenes campaign last year to influence a major U.S. government research study on football and brain disease.The 91-page congressional report described how the NFL pressured the National Institutes of Health to strip a $16 million project from a prominent Boston University researcher and tried to redirect the money to members of the leagues committee on brain injuries. The study was to have been funded out of a $30 million unrestricted gift the NFL gave the NIH in 2012.After the NIH rebuffed the NFLs campaign to remove Robert Stern, an expert in neurodegenerative disease who has criticized the league, the NFL backed out of a signed agreement to pay for the study, the report shows. Taxpayers ended up bearing the cost instead.The NFLs actions violated policies that prohibit private donors from interfering in the NIH peer-review process, the report concludes, and were part of a long-standing pattern of attempts by the league to shape concussion research for its own purposes.In the letter posted Wednesday, the commissioner said that the league can and will do better in this area and acknowledged that some might think the leagues motives are not pure.We know there is skepticism about our work in this area, he wrote. Thats why both the process and the results of our work will be shared with the medical community and the public at large.The program will have four pillars, according to the website: protecting players, advanced technology, medical research and sharing progress.The league will take a hard look at any aspect of the rules that can make the game safer for our players, Goodell wrote. But the letter also says that $60 million of the total funding will go toward exploring technological solutions to player safety. That could include new helmets.Another of our goals is to explore the concept of position-specific helmets, Goodell wrote. After all, we know from tracking game and injury data that linemen experience different impacts than a wide receiver or a defensive back. Yet their protective equipment is the same.Goodell wrote that more than $40 million will be allotted to medical research.?The goal is to pursue scientific research to examine the long-term effects of concussion, the incidence and prevalence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and what can be done to improve long-term player health, Goodell wrote.As professional athletes question whether they would allow their own kids to play football, Goodell wrote that the new program plans to share information with sports families.Our goal will be to equip parents with the best available information to make decisions about their childrens participation in football and other contact sports, he wrote, adding that the league will expand its athletic trainer program.Talk of head injuries has become a major topic in the NFL. The NFL and NFLPA said that they will look into hits that league MVP Cam Newton took this weekend to see if correct protocols were followed.?All of the talk takes leads to the question of whether the risk of playing football is worth the reward. Goodell thinks it is.Long ago, before I was NFL Commissioner, I was a high school football player, he wrote. I played safety for the Bronxville High School Broncos. Those were among the happiest days of my life.The values I gained from that experience -- grit, commitment to team, hard work and how to conduct oneself in both victory and defeat -- are values Ive applied throughout my adult life. Guy Lapointe Jersey . -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The sky blue carpet was laid out, and fans equipped with handmade signs and smart phones lined the decaled barricades, waiting for a car to arrive and drop off Russell Westbrook.Local businesses downtown let employees off work early, encouraging them to head to Chesapeake Energy Arena. Drummers pounded on their snares and cymbals, scattered chants of Rus-sell! broke out organically and team employees bounced around, handing out bottles of water and snow cones.More than a thousand people were gathered, sweating in unison on a steamy August day -- one in which the mayor of Oklahoma City, Mick Cornett, had declared to be Russell Westbrook Day.One month ago to the day, Kevin Durant had signed with the Golden State Warriors, bringing the Oklahoma City Thunder franchise to its knees. A truck just ran through us, is how one person within the team phrased it.Now, a celebration was happening. Westbrook had signed an extension, stabilizing the organization and allowing it to finally begin to move forward. Durants departure was the darkest day in franchise history; Westbrooks commitment might be the brightest.The suddenness of Westbrooks renegotiated deal was jarring, going from dead silence for the past month to news breaking late on Wednesday that it was close, and then done. But in reality, Westbrook and the Thunder have been in agreement on an extension for more than two weeks. The signal was Dion Waiters qualifying offer being rescinded, a move done with only the goal of freeing necessary cap space to extend Westbrook. The moment the Thunder pulled that offer, they knew they had a commitment from Westbrook.In the wake of Durants departure, the Thunder focused on patience and level-headed choices. They quickly turned to Westbrook to try and steady the franchise and to do it with something tangible. A contract extension that, in essence, plants a flag in the ground with the Thunder. A declaration that in forgoing his own free agency a year from now, Westbrook was going to pick up the mantle Durant willingly laid down.Yes, Westbrook now maximizes his earning potential. His contract is a renegotiation and it only goes up, adding an extra $8.7 million this season. Then its another guaranteed year with the Thunder, and then Westbrook hits the coveted 10-year veteran max qualifier and could ink a five-year, $204 million contract, making him the highest-paid player in the NBA.But first, he had to commit to the Thunder now.Theres no denying Westbrook made the most pragmatic, sensible decision. Hes making the most money he possibly can and keeping options open for the future. Hes also making the most brash and bold one. Hes assuming the burden of filling the crater Durant left behind. Its a perfect Westbrookian paradox, fitting for the kind of player he is. None of it makes any sense, except it all makes perfect sense.Westbrook, 27, can re-enter the free agent market in two years, and many look at this situation as him giving the Thunder a timetable. A deadline of two years to convince him to stay again. But to judge the length of the contract and assume hes plotting for future free agency would be, like many do with Westbrook already, misreading the situation. Westbrook has made a clear commitment to the Thunder. Hes under contract longer with them than Durant is with the Warriors.The Thunder are under no illusion this is a lifetime contract, though. Theres work to be done. The roster has holes, and Westbrook wants to win. But he also isnt in desperate search for approval because of it. Westbrook doesnt tend to care much about what people think. That should be pretty obvious with the way he dresses himself.Its one of the reasons Westbrook is perpetually misunderstood. Many conflate his on-court persona withh his off-court personality. Dickie Moore Jersey. Hes unapologetic. Hes fiery. Hes emotional. Hes arguably the most competitive player in professional sports. And hes really not as complicated as it might seem. With Westbrook, what you see is what you get. Hes not one to mince words with the media -- no matter how short those words might be -- and it wont take a decoder to figure him out.Im a straightforward type of guy. I shoot you straight, he said. No need to go back and forth and try to figure out any other options, create this hoopla, rumors and all this stuff. This is where I want to be, and thats what I made the decision based on.Almost instantly after Durant left, Westbrook understood the gravity of the situation he was cast into. It was time for him to make a decision now, a year earlier than expected, and give the Thunder a course to plot. As one person close to Westbrook said: He operates in the light of day. There would be no backroom angling. He was going to give the Thunder an answer, one way or the other.All the times weve been together, OKC general manager Sam Presti said, I dont think Ive ever walked out a conversation with him thinking, I dont know where he stands, I dont know what he thinks, I dont know what he means. It was right down the middle. Direct.But following Durants announcement, as he said Thursday, Westbrook quickly shifted into thinking ahead for the Thunder. He asked Presti, Whats next?I said, Here is one thing that could be next, Presti said. Id really like it to happen, by the way.The Thunder made it their primary objective to lock up Westbrook. They maneuvered to be in the position to do it, and once they formally presented the option, it didnt take long for him to commit.It might have seemed as if it was a toss-up, that the Russell Westbrook many perceive wouldnt stay in little ol Oklahoma City. Hes got his fashion interests. Hes from Los Angeles. Hes got to crave the big-city spotlight.Durant always appeared to be the perfect fit with Oklahoma City, with his humble nature and down-home demeanor. But he also was drawn to a bigger city, not necessarily for the brighter lights, but for the ability to blend. In Oklahoma City, Durant carried a larger-than-life burden everywhere he went. Hed privately lamented to friends an inability to be in public. Westbrooks ideal night off the floor, though? At home with his wife, Nina, watching anything other than basketball. Thats a fit with Oklahoma City.While Durant often had issues with the roster -- not enough veterans, not the right mix, not enough spending -- Westbrook has always been a believer in Presti. Westbrooks mentality has consistently been this: Give me the 14 guys you want me to play with, and well go after it. And as the Thunder now reconfigure around him, Presti has the responsibility of sorting through the best way to complement a Westbrook-led roster.Westbrooks world is forever different now. He was once a part of a core, with Durant and James Harden and Serge Ibaka. Then he was the Han Solo to Durants Luke Skywalker. Now, hes flag-bearer, assuming the full weight of a franchise on his back. He now takes on the responsibility of being the franchise player, alone. He didnt ask for it. But he has embraced it.Westbrook has always has been an overcomer. He didnt care he was barely recruited out of high school. He didnt flinch at critics saying hes not a point guard. Hes not one to shy away from a challenge. He runs into them headfirst, full steam ahead, for better or worse. Picking up the pieces after Durants exit is as much a challenge as there is.Exactly the kind of thing Russell Westbrook lives for.

PHOENIX -- Ryan Schimpf toiled in the minors for seven years waiting for a chance to have a night like this. Devin Harris Jersey .The 28-year-old rookie homered twice and the San Diego Padres beat Arizona 13-6 on Wednesday night to take two of three from the Diamondbacks.Schimpf has four major league home runs, three in the past two nights.Ive been working and preparing for this moment all the years I spent in the minor leagues, he said, just practicing and playing like I would be here at some point. Thats just kind of how Ive always played. Im definitely happy to be here and grateful for the opportunity.Schimpf was called up from Triple-A El Paso on June 14 to help an injury depleted infield. He was hitting .196 entering Wednesday nights game but manager Andy Green knew the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder could do better.Hes hit 20-plus (home runs) every year the last four years, Green said. It might not look like it in the package but hes got a lot of power.Yangervis Solarte drove in five runs, three on a homer, Wil Myers had three hits and drove in a run and Matt Kemp had a two-run single for the Padres, who scored 13 consecutive runs after Arizona took a 4-0 lead.Schimpf had a two-run shot off Shelby Miller in the Padres five-run fourth inning and a solo home run off Josh Collmenter in the ninth for his first career two-homer game.Miller (2-9) threw three scoreless innings, on one hit, before falling apart in the fourth. Miller, 0-7 at home, allowed six runs in five innings.It was almost like they got something on him, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. It was five runs on 12 pitches. It was quick and they did a good job of getting on the early pitches. It was a tough one to watch. He was so good for three innings. it was like `Is this guy going to throw a nine-inning shutout tonight? then boom.Jose Dominguez (1-0) pitched 1 1/3 innings in relief of starter Colin Rea to get the win. The bases were loaded with two outs and the Padres up by one when Dominguez entered the game and struck out pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks Jr. with a 99 mph fastball.Green called that the biggest moment of the game.Solarte fell a triple shy of the cycle. His three-run homer came off Collmenter in the ninth. Solarte had a run-scoring single in the fourth and an RBI double in the fifth.Brandon Drury and Jake Lamb homered for the Diamondbacks, who finished a 2-7 homestand.Arizona fell to 15-32 at home and is in a virtual tie with San Diego for last place in the NL West.Through three innings, Miller threw just 34 pitches.But the wheels came off in the fourth. The Padres had four straight singles to start the inning and an RBI groundout before Schimpf sent Millers 2-0 pitch into the seats in left field.PADRES MOVESan Diego claimed RHP Jake Smith off waivers from the San Francisco Giants and assigned him to Double-A San Antonio.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: 2B Jean Segura left the game with a bruised left triceps after being hit by a pitch in the second inning. X-rays were negative. ... Hale said RHP Zack Greinke has thrown lightly with trainers in the training room. Hale said Greinke (strained left oblique) will get on the field when the team goes to San Francisco this week and just play catch and see how it feels.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Drew Pomeranz (7-7, 2.65 ERA) gets the start Thursday night when the Padres open a three-game series against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. RHP Hyun-Jin Ru will come off the DL to make his season debut for the Dodgers.Diamondbacks: Arizona has Thursday off. LHP Patrick Corbin (4-6, 4.90) starts Friday night in the opener of a three-game series in San Francisco. RHP Jeff Samardzija (8-5, 3.97) goes for the Giants. Malik Beasley Jersey . After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. Carmelo Anthony Jersey . Takahashi, who had a 10-point lead after the short program, received 268.31 points after the free skate to finish 15 points ahead of second-place Nobunari Oda. .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Problems with certain sections of the Central Broward Regional Park outfield, which West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite said were unsafe, was the deciding factor in calling off play in Sundays second T20I in Lauderhill. The India captain MS Dhoni had a slightly differing view and said he had played in worse conditions during his career.Chasing a target of 144, India had reached 15 for 0 after two overs, but an intense 15-minute thunderstorm left huge puddles on the bowlers run-up at the pavilion end of the ground. Another section on the edge of the 30-yard circle due west of the center of the pitch, a notoriously slow drying area due to an undulating ridge in that part of the field, also forced the hand of the match officials in calling off play, according to Brathwaite.There were about two or three, Brathwaite said, when asked which areas of the field were a cause of concern. Looking from the pavilion, the run-ups on that side and just beside the sponsors [painted ad on field] plus probably mid-on and then there was a little patch on the [west] side looking from the pavilion again.So in my opinion it was unsafe, and even if the run-ups were good and a guy hits a ball in the outfield in a fast-paced T20 game and he chases behind it and pulls something, that could be the end of a guys career. So not only will we want to play, we want the facilities and the atmosphere to be as safe for everyones career as possible. In my opinion, I dont think it was and the umpires also made that decision as well.Contrary to Brathwaites assessment of conditions supporting the umpires decision to call off play, Dhoni hinted that he felt the outfield was safe enough that play could have continued. He said he had played in worse conditions during his career, citing the 2011 tour of England as an example.What the umpires told us, there was not adequate equipment over here and the condition of it was quite bad, so because the conditions wouldnt improve we wont be able to play a game, Dhoni said. Thats a call that the match officials have to make and as far as Ive played close to 10 years of international cricket and frankly Ive played under worse off conditions.If I remember in 2011, the whole ODI series that we played in England, it was literally playing under the rain. I feel definitely the conditions … ultimately the umpires decide so they decide you play, we play. If they say okay it was unfit for play, it was unfit for play.It was on this [west] side where me and Bravo were standing but it was far away from all the run-ups of the bowlers. There is no Shoaib Akhtar in their team so I dont think it was a big concern.Fans were kept in the dark about the status of the game despite bright sunshine after the shower ended. An hour and five minutes later, the first indication the match would be called off was the hasty construction behind the pavilion sightscreen of the post-match presentation display. A few minutes later, Brathwaite and Dhoni walked onto the field for a final chat with umpires before shaking hands.Even if the teams had waited another hour to see if the outfield would dry, the stadiums lightning detector alarm sounded at about 3 pm, which would have produced a further delay as another thunderstorm approached the stadium. The alarm, in place for safety reasons by Florida state law, mandates that all players and fans must leave the field until receiving an all clear signall that the lightning threat has passed. Denver Nuggets Jerseys. A 50-minute delay occurred for a Caribbean Premier League game at the same stadium last month when lightning was detected in the area even though there was no rain forcing the pitch to be covered.However, Sundays match could have come to a conclusion via Duckworth-Lewis method had there not been a 40-minute delayed start in the morning despite clear skies overhead. At the time of the delay, BCCI officials only said there was a technical reason for play to be held up, and when the issue was raised after the match was abandoned, they said a press release would be put out to clarify the matter, though none has yet been issued.A source involved in game operations at the Central Broward Regional Park told ESPNcricinfo that the reason for the delay was a breakdown in the satellite connection link from the ground with the host broadcaster back in India. A message was initially posted on the stadium video board to say the match would start at 10.30 am. At about 10.23 am, a new message was given by the public address announcer saying the match would now start at 10.40 am, prompting boos as fans grew increasingly impatient because of the delay, one that eventually prevented a result.*Another stadium official verified the reason for the delay and told ESPNcricinfo that the TV broadcast production team had to wait for a replacement production truck with satellite-link capabilities to arrive at the stadium and get hooked up before they could recover the signal and carry on with the broadcast, which in part accounted for the delay extending from the initial 30 minutes to 40 minutes in total. We were always working against time especially with the 40-minute delay beforehand, Brathwaite said. It was always difficult to get the ground in readiness for the time that was told to be cut off, so that was a major problem. The equipment that obviously will be had in years to come, because of the fantastic infrastructure thats already in place, will then eliminate stuff like this from happening in the future.Brathwaite remained positive about the experience of playing in Florida and was optimistic that West Indies and other teams would make plans to return in spite of the drainage issues encountered on Sunday.The infrastructure, the facility, we came three or four days ago and there was nothing going up and today they are picking it back down, Brathwaite said. So they had stands built in no time, no injuries so obviously they were safe enough, and the outfield, barring the rain was perfect, lightning quick. The pitch was fantastic. It didnt change too much over the course of yesterday and today, thats 40, 62 overs odd, so thats the basis of something positive.Now just little tweaks and little stuff to go into the actual infrastructure continuing what is already there, I can see a big future ahead not only for India v West Indies in America but for American cricket itself.I personally see some 50-over games being played here as well. Well probably get a team to break the 500-run barrier. So looking forward to it and yeah as I say, it bodes well for cricket in the United States. I love Fort Lauderdale and hope to be back soon.*August 29, 1.10pm GMT The story was amended to include the stadium officials inputs Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '

ANAHEIM Lou Gehrig Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch does not expect Lance McCullers Jr. to rejoin the starting rotation this season when he returns from a forearm injury.Hinch said Sunday it is unlikely McCullers, who is 10-6 with a 3.93 ERA, would be able to rebuild his stamina to the point where he could start.“I guess never say never ’cause once you get on the mound and get going things can progress a different way, but I think the focus will be and probably should be shorter stints,” Hinch said.McCullers has been on the disabled list since Aug. 5, one day after he left a start against the Los Angeles Dodgers early because of a muscle strain.Hinch also said McCullers’ rehabilitation program was being slowed down because of a “continued lack of progress,” but he is still targeting September for him to resume throwing off the mound.“We knew it was September until we were going to consider doing anything. Then we thought we could be a little bit more aggressive with him , but we’re going to put that on pause and just have him do a throwing program,” Hinch said.“He’s feeling pretty symptom-free. I think his throwing has been fine, but kind of the re-evaluation of him, we’ve decided to push it back.”Hinch is not sure how he will structure his rotation down the stretch without McCullers. Left-hander Framber Valdez could be an option to start after allowing one run in 4 1/3 innings to earn the win in his major league debut at Seattle on Tuesday. The Astros could also take advantage of September call-ups to address the vacancy.“As the rules change where we can expand the rosters, you could see a spot going to somebody that steps up and takes the ball and is very reliable for every five days. You could see that spot change. You could also see us be creative with the bullpen and have a bullpen day every now and then,” Hinch said.But Hinch is wary of being too experimental given how closely contested the AL West is.“We’ve got to continue to put really good pitchers out there and not be too much trial and error because of the race that we’re in, but I could see it being used a lot of different ways. My preference would be for somebody to step up and throw the ball very well and have our normal rotation Mickey Mantle Jersey ,” Hinch said. A look at what’s happening around the majors on today:THE HAPPENINGThe Yankees know they’ll be playing in the AL wild-card game on Oct. 3, and J.A. Happ on track to be their starter. New York clinched a wild-card berth with a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in 11 innings on Saturday. Happ, 6-0 with a 2.39 ERA for New York after he was acquired from Toronto, is scheduled to start Sunday against Boston and would be on normal rest next Friday at Boston and for the wild-card game. The left-hander allowed one run and two hits over six innings to win on Sept. 4 at Oakland, New York’s probable wild-card opponent.ON A ROLLThe Tampa Bay Rays will look to keep their faint postseason hopes alive behind streaking left-hander Blake Snell in their series finale against Toronto. Snell (20-5, 1.97 ERA) is 8-0 with a 1.17 ERA in his past eight starts, striking out 63 over 46 innings in that stretch. The Blue Jays will counter with lefty Ryan Borucki , who pitched eight shutout innings to beat Baltimore in his previous outing. The Rays would need a collapse by Oakland in the season’s final week to earn a wild-card berth. If not, the A’s would face the Yankees in the winner-take-all game.TWO’S ENOUGHThe Cardinals shouldn’t expect to need an offensive outburst to maintain their position in the NL wild-card race. Miles Mikolas (16-4, 3.01 ERA), who starts Sunday against San Francisco, is 16-0 when receiving two or more runs of support. St. Louis holds the second wild-card position behind the Milwaukee Brewers, with the Colorado Rockies chasing.LOOKING AHEADNow that they’ve won their first NL East crown since 2013, the Atlanta Braves can start figuring out their postseason rotation. Mike Foltynewicz has been the Braves’ most consistent starter and took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in Saturday’s division-clinching win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Kevin Gausman has been solid since coming over in a trade with Baltimore and could start Game 2 of the NL Division Series. Beyond that Roger Maris Jersey , the Braves have Anibal Sanchez (6-6, 3.01 ERA), Julio Teheran (16-9, 4.03) and Sean Newcomb (16-12, 4.04). Sanchez can begin stating his case on Sunday when he pitches against the Phillies and ace Aaron Nola.

Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday. George Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. NEW YORK -- Dont tell the Philadelphia Phillies that late September games dont matter to teams not in contention.The Phillies battled the New York Mets at every opportunity and had the NL East rivals just two-outs from a fourth consecutive loss on two different occasions, but the young Philadelphia bullpen was unable to complete the task.Jose Reyes hit a tying two-run homer in the ninth inning and Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three-run drive in an 11th-inning comeback to lift the Mets to a dramatic 9-8 win over the Phillies on Thursday night that kept the Mets tied for the NL wild-card lead.This was the toughest loss of the season, Mackanin added. Our guys did a great job offensively. We should have had them. We just made a lot of bad pitches and let them right back in.The Mets used 27 players, including 10 pitchers, to win a struggle that took 4 hours, 23 minutes.Thats the thing about September, Mackanin added. They have a lefty for every righty I bring in and vice versa and thats what makes it so difficult.Philadelphia went ahead 8-6 in the 11th when A.J. Ellis hit an RBI single off Jeurys Familia and Jim Henderson (2-2) walked Maikel Franco with the bases loaded.Pinch-hitter Michael Conforto walked against Edubray Ramos (1-3) with one out in the bottom half, Reyes singled and Cabrera, who has been playing with a strained left knee tendon, sent a slider soaring to right, setting off a wild celebration. The Mets had been 0-63 this year when trailing after eight innings.As soon as I hit it, I knew the ball was going to be out, Cabrera said.A member of the Phillies staff was consoling Ramos at his locker after the game.He hung a slider, Mackanin said. Just a bad pitch.The extra frames were needed because the struggles of closer Jeanmar Gomez continued. Gomez came into the game having allowed six earned runs over his last three appearances and fell behind Reyes in blowing his sixth blown save oof the season. Takkarist McKinley Jersey. New York trailed 6-4 before pinch-hitter Brandon Nimmo singled off Gomez leading off the ninth and Reyes sent a changeup over the right-field wall with one out.The last two weeks have been really tough on me, Gomez said.Mackanin feels that his young relievers can use this game as a learning experience.I think that the learning experience is that, against a team like this, or any major league team, you cant make mistakes, you got to throw quality pitches, he said. If you do, youre going to be successful and if you dont, youre going to get hurt.Starter Adam Morgan allowed three earned runs in five innings of work. Phillies starters have allowed three earned runs or fewer in 19 consecutive starts.Cameron Rupp and Ryan Howard homered on consecutive pitches in the fifth inning to give the Phillies a 3-2 lead. Howards homer was his 47th against the Mets, tops among active players against the Mets.TRAINERS ROOMMets: LHP Steven Matz was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday because of continued discomfort in his left shoulder. He hasnt pitched since Aug. 14.Phillies: OF Tyler Goeddel was diagnosed with a concussion after getting hit by a Chris Beck pitch on Wednesday. .

WASHINGTON -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison wants the NFL to provide credible evidence before he agrees to an interview with league officials regarding a media report that linked him and other players to the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Throwback Florida Jerseys .The NFL Players Association sent a letter on Harrisons behalf to NFL executive Adolpho Birch on Tuesday asking for more information.We have repeatedly requested that the NFL inform him and the NFLPA whether the NFL possesses any credible evidence (e.g., verified documents or verified testimony of witnesses) that warrants an interview of Mr. Harrison regarding a potential violation, union attorney Heather M. McPhee wrote.The other active players implicated by the Al-Jazeera report are Green Bay linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, and free-agent linebacker Mike Neal, who played the past six seasons with the Packers. Peyton Manning, who is now retired, also was cited in Al-Jazeeras doping report in December. He wasnt mentioned in the NFLs investigation, but USA Today, citing an unnamed source, reported last week that an investigation into Mannings possible involvement also is progressing.The NFL first notified Matthews, Peppers, Harrison and Neal about its investigation into the report on Jan. 11.Al-Jazeera America reported allegations by Charlie Sly, who worked as an intern at an anti-aging clinic. But Sly later recanted his claims.Especially in a business where the mere mention of a player-employees name can generate ratings for a broadcaster, the NFLPA and Mr. Harrison do not believe that unsupported, unsubstantiated verbal remarks provide `sufficient credible evidence to initiate an investigation of, and require an interview with, an employee, McPhee wrote.---AP NFL website: and John Brantley College Jersey .

The Gunners defeated Premier League leaders Leicester 2-1 on Sunday, with Danny Welbeck scoring a stoppage-time winner on his return from injury to move two points behind the Foxes. Arsene Wenger admitted afterwards it was a game Arsenal had to win and Winterburn feels the character they showed to grind out the victory demonstrated their title credentials.

It shows that there is a big togetherness within the squad. It was absolutely massive for Arsenal to win the game.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers are poised Sunday to grab the series victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks , but not even they could have imagined things were going to be this dramatic against their division rivals.After two late-inning home runs rallied the Dodgers past the Diamondbacks on Friday, Matt Kemp hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning Saturday to give the Dodgers a 3-2 victory.The latest victory moved the Dodgers into a tie for first place with Arizona, the first time Los Angeles has held at least a share of the National League West lead since Aug. 11.Article continues below ...The last time the Dodgers held sole possession of first place in the division was Aug. 7, but that could change with a victory Sunday.The Dodgers will send rookie Walker Buehler (6-4, 3.02 ERA) to the mound Sunday afternoon as they try to win three consecutive games in the showdown series. Buehler has given up two earned runs or fewer in six consecutive starts, going 2-0 in five August turns with a 1.53 ERA.Buehler, who has yet to face the Diamondbacks in his young career, might be the Dodgers’ least experienced starter, but the club is feeling completely confident about things after the last two games.The Dodgers were 4 1/2 games out of first place after a loss Aug. 22, but have gone 7-1 in their last eight games to make up the ground.“Not surprised, very impressed Whitey Herzog Jersey , and I think the noise outside, and the things that were being said, our guys didn’t waver,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Each day, to their credit, they focus on each game and aren’t worried about the other clubs and how they played.”The Diamondbacks had owned the Dodgers going back to late August 2017. They finished the 2017 regular season with six consecutive victories over the Dodgers, and although Los Angeles won a postseason series, Arizona opened 2018 by going 7-1 in the first eight games of the matchup.Even in the last two games, the Diamondbacks were in control until some late-inning Dodgers heroics. Before Kemp’s home run Saturday, Enrique Hernandez and Justin Turner hit home runs to win Friday’s game.On Friday, Diamondbacks manager Torry Lovullo appeared to leave starter Zack Greinke in the game too long. On Saturday , starter Patrick Corbin went only five innings, even though he had not allowed a run to score.“It’s easy to sit right now and say, knowing what the results are, that we would do it differently,” Lovullo said after Friday’s game, according to the Arizona Republic. “Of course, I would have done it differently had I known what the outcome was.”He did do things differently Saturday, only he got the same results.Up next for the Diamondbacks is right-hander Clay Buchholz (7-2, 2.07), who hasn’t allowed a run in his last 15 innings. He has a 0.39 ERA in his last three starts and a 1.53 ERA in his last nine outings.Buchholz’s only start against the Dodgers came in 2010, and he went 6 2/3 scoreless innings as a member of the Boston Red Sox. The New York Yankees are getting healthy.And that makes manager Aaron Boone happy.Shortstop Didi Gregorius was activated off the 10-day disabled list Friday and played for the first time since suffering a left heel contusion in an Aug. 19 collision with Toronto first baseman Kendrys Morales. Article continues below ...Gregorius didn’t start but came on as a defensive substitute in the bottom of the sixth inning and likely will start in Saturday’s game against the host Seattle Mariners.“We’ll ease Didi back in Orlando Cepeda Jersey , not having played any rehab games,” Boone said. “The hope will be to get him in at some point (Friday). And if everything goes well, probably start him (Saturday) — not necessarily the whole game — and kind of build him back in that way. With September, we have the bodies that we can get other guys in there and not be up against it.”Boone stressed the importance of having Gregorius back, both offensively and defensively.“He’s a left-handed hitter and being able to hit him in different spots throughout the middle of the order, he balances us out,” Boone said. “He’s so steady for us at shortstop. The intangible things he does as far as leading our infield and always has his eye in the dugout, knows where to be. He’s kind of like a quarterback out there at shortstop.”Just as importantly, outfielder Aaron Judge participated in on-field drills Friday for the first time since suffering a fractured right wrist July 26.Judge hit balls off a tee before taking some underhand tosses from hitting coach Marcus Thomas.“This is what we’ve been waiting for this whole time, for that pain to get out of there, for him to be able to really swing ,” Boone said. “I think he’s starting to get at least a little bit excited about how he’s feeling when he’s swinging the bat. The ball is coming off real nice. Just positive steps for Aaron.”That next step will be batting practice, then some simulated games. Judge has said he hopes to be playing in games within the next two weeks.“Hopefully, now the progression is one that moves now, now that he’s to this point where he can do everything,” Boone said. “Now it’s just a matter of getting back up to baseball speed, building that stamina and then obviously graduating to live pitching, to seeing an actual pitcher.”Yankees right-hander Lance Lynn (8-10, 5.10 ERA) is scheduled to start Saturday against Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez (8-13, 5.55). Lynn will be facing Seattle for the first time; Hernandez is 10-7 with a 3.00 ERA in 22 career starts against the Yankees. Hernandez won his only start against New York this season, giving up two runs (one earned) in five innings.The Mariners, who are trying to stay in the American League’s wild-card race behind the Yankees and Oakland Bob Gibson Jersey , also got some good news on the injury front Friday, as left-hander Marco Gonzales threw 35 pitches off the mound.Mariners manager Scott Servais said Gonzales, who has been on the disabled list with a strained cervical muscle in his neck, will be activated in time to start Tuesday against San Diego.Gonzales was 12-5 before going 0-4 with a 10.35 ERA in four August starts.“I want to see the same guy we saw in June and July,” Servais said. “He was cruising. He does feel fine physically and is throwing all his pitches in the bullpen. He probably won’t go as long. First time out, you’re probably looking at 75 pitches or something like that. Again, we just want to see him healthy, executing pitches and feeling good about things.”Meanwhile the Mariners will try to rebound from getting shut out and being held to three hits in its seventh loss in 11 games.
