The New York Jets have signed linebacker Avery Williamson to a three-year contract worth $22.5 million.

Williamson spent his first four NFL seasons with Tennessee and led the Titans in tackles in two of those years.

It appears the 26-year-old Williamson will be a replacement at inside linebacker for Demario Davis Packers Authentic Jerseys , who led the Jets in tackles last season with a career season but is 29 and a free agent.

Instead, New York went with the younger Williamson, who has 11陆 sacks and 377 tackles with two interceptions and three forced fumbles. He'll likely combine with Darron Lee to man the middle of the Jets' linebacker group.

Williamson was a fifth-round pick out of Kentucky in the 2014 draft. He became a starter for the Titans early in his rookie season and became a consistent playmaker during his four years with the team.

MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers kept hoping Eric Sogard would find a way out of his funk and return to the form that made him a key component to last year’s surprising team.

It never happened and the Brewers finally ran out of time and roster space, leaving no choice but to designate the 32-year-old for assignment when Tyler Saladino was activated from the disabled list Thursday.

With Jonathan Villar unable to reproduce his 2016 magic, Sogard provided a spark atop Milwaukee’s lineup last season. He batted .273 with a .393 on-base percentage in 94 games and signed a $2.4 million deal to return to Milwaukee in 2018.

But he got off to a painfully slow start and saw his playing time diminish even further as Villar showed improvement at second base. Through 55 games this season Authentic Mason Rudolph Jersey , Sogard was batting .134 with a .241 OBP and .165 slugging percentage.

With Tyler Saladino returning from the disabled list and recently promoted Brad Miller swinging a hot bat, Sogard became the odd-man out.

“Eric got in a little slump, had some bad luck, and he could never get out of it,” manager Craig Counsell said. As we’re getting healthier Cheap Kevin Hogan Jersey , we kind of ran out of space. He’s made a big contribution here, and was a real pro throughout all of this in how he prepared and provided us value.”

Counsell’s squad extended its winning streak to four games with a victory in the series opener and will try to move 18 games above .500 for the first time since the 2014 season Friday as it continues a four-game series with the Braves at Miller Park.

Rookie right-hander Freddie Peralta gets the nod for his sixth career start. He earned his first career loss in his last outing but still made a good impression, putting up zeroes for four innings after allowing three runs to score before recording an out in an 8-2 loss to the Reds on Sunday in Cincinnati.

“I thought he handled it very well,” Counsell said. “That’s a game where we’re probably two hitters from probably removing him from the game, and then he goes five innings and keeps us in the game.”

Peralta has been magnificent otherwise since returning for a second big league stint June 19. He’s 2-1 with a 1.50 ERA in three starts and has struck out 22 batters while walking only four in 18 innings.

He also made a pair of starts for the Brewers in May and takes the mound Friday with a 3-1 record and 2.28 ERA overall.

Right-hander Mike Foltynewicz gets the nod for the Braves John Ross Bengals Jersey , as he tries to lock down a spot on the National League All-Star team.

Foltynewicz has an 0.87 ERA over his last nine starts, holding opponents to a .146 average during that stretch with 64 strikeouts in 52 innings.

Opponents scored more than one run against him in one of those outings and he’s held opponents scoreless in five of them, including his last time out when the Cardinals managed one hit against him in five innings.

He credits his slider for the recent run of success.

“I’m really proud of how far that pitch has come,” Foltynewicz said. “I’ve been working like a dog on it the past couple of years, and it’s come a long way. I’m throwing it for strikes when I need to Authentic Scooter Gennett Jersey , especially in 3-2 counts. I get to 3-2 a lot, so it’s a good pitch for me.”

Foltynewicz has dominated the Brewers during his four seasons in the big leagues, posting a 1.48 ERA in four career starts against Milwaukee. He faced them twice last season, allowing two earned runs (five total) over 11 innings while striking out 15.

LE LIORAN, France -- The expected battle between Chris Froome and Nairo Quintana at the Tour de France has been put on hold for at least a couple of days. Cheap Jerseys From China .The leading contenders had a relatively quiet day in the races first medium mountain stage Wednesday, content to let Greg van Avermaet complete a successful solo attack and take the overall leaders yellow jersey. The Belgian rider is not in contention to finish top of the general classification, or GC, when the race ends in Paris.For us its just about winning the GC and Chris was comfortable. It was not really a day for the big GC guys, said Geraint Thomas, Froomes top support rider at Sky. Obviously some guys lost a bit of time but for Froomey it was just about staying at the front, staying calm and not losing any time to anybody.Two-time winner Alberto Contador and 2014 champion Vincenzo Nibali both lost time over the demanding route through the Massif Central.Contador finished 33 seconds behind the other overall favorites while Nibali -- who won the Giro dItalia in May -- lost more than eight minutes, putting an end to his chances of overall victory.Its just a handful of seconds here, Thomas said. You cant write Contador off. Obviously its a bonus, but we certainly dont take anything for granted.Still, its looking more and more like a battle between Froome, the defending and two-time champion from Britain, and two-time runner-up Quintana from Colombia.Van Avermaet was part of an early nine-man breakaway and he methodically whittled down the group before accelerating past fellow Belgian Thomas De Gendt with 17 kilometers (10 miles) to go on the penultimate climb of the day.The 31-year-old Van Avermaet also won a stage in last years Tour and is known as a specialist at single-day classics and short stage races, having won Paris-Tours in 2011 and the Tirreno-Adriatico this year.Its special for me. Its the best jersey in the world. Its my first time and perhaps the last so I will enjoy every moment, Van Avermaet said. Its the best moment of my career. Winning a stage is already quite something but this takes it to another level.The 216-kilometer (134-mile) fifth stage from Limoges to Le Lioran featured five climbs in a constant up-and-down finish, including the 1,589-meter (5,213-foot) Pas de Peyrol.It was the first time that the Tour reached above 1,500 meters this early in the race since the leg-breaking start to the 1979 edition, which began with three stages in the Pyrenees over the first four days.Nibali was dropped on the Peyrol along with world champion Peter Sagan, who was wearing the yellow jersey for a third day.Sagan still has the green points jersey but he fell to 76th overall, more than 23 minutes behind.I dont care about it. Cest la vie, Sagan said, using a French phrase that translates to Thats life.De Gendt finished second in the stage, 2:35 behind and Rafal Majka of Poland, the 2014 King of the Mountains, crossed third, 5:04 back.In the overall standings, Van Avermaet holds a lead of 5:11 over rising French rider Julian Alaphilippe, with Spanish veteran Alejandro Valverde third, 5:13 behind.Froome is fifth, 5:17 behind, and Quintana is seventh with the same time.Contador, who fell twice in each of the opening two stages, is 25th, 6:38 back.I knew it would be hard, Contador said. The two crashes really hurt. Im still aching. Its not easy to recover. But Im hanging in there.Van Avermaet does not consider himself a threat for the overall title. He plans to support BMC captains Tejay van Garderen and Richie Porte in the Pyrenees and Alps.Its good to have good morale in the team and to take the pressure off, Van Avermaet said. The main goal for us is having Tejay or Richie on the podium in Paris.On a sunny and pleasant day with the temperature at about 20 degrees Celsius (70 Fahrenheit), fans -- many of them wearing polka-dot King of the Mountains jerseys -- lined the road in large numbers leading up to the Le Lioran ski resort.The most important thing was not crashing, because the descents were tricky and the pavement was melting, Van Avermaet said. It was good to stay concentrated and enjoy the last kilometer. Its kind of strange because Im a sprinter and usually you cannot enjoy the finish so much.Stage 6 Thursday is a flatter 190.5-kilometer (118-mile) leg from Arpajon-sur-Cere to Montauban. The next mountain stages come this weekend in the Pyrenees, although the Tour may not be decided until the race reaches the Alps in the third week.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Authentic Nike NFL Jerseys China . -- Derrius Guice rushed for a career-high 252 yards and Leonard Fournette added three touchdowns and No. 24 LSU improved to 4-1 under interim coach Ed Orgeron with a 38-10 win over Arkansas on Saturday night.The win ends a two-game losing streak against the Razorbacks for the Tigers (6-3, 4-2 SEC, No. 24 CFP), who were coming off a 10-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama.Guice rushed for two touchdowns on 21 carries, and his 96-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter was the longest in school history. Fournette scored on runs of 7, 7 and 3 yards for LSU, finishing with 98 yards rushing on 17 carries.Arkansas sees us as an easy victory every time we lose to Alabama because we always play them right after, Guice said. They felt like it was tradition to just beat us every time we play Alabama and lose, so Im just happy we got to bring the Boot back home.The Tigers outgained Arkansas (6-4, 2-4, No. 25 CFP) 547-291 in total yardage, and LSU quarterback Danny Etling finished 10-of-16 passing for 157 yards.Rawleigh Williams accounted for 103 total yards to lead the Razorbacks, while Austin Allen was 15-of-31 passing for 210 yards and two interceptions.Offensively, it just seemed like whenever we did something good we shot ourselves in the foot or did something uncharacteristic, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. That obviously set us back.Guices previous career high was a 163-yard performance against Missouri on Oct. 1. The sophomore has now topped the 100-yard rushing mark in four games this season, and his career night comes a week after a two-carry, 8-yard performance against Alabama.We felt that Derrius deserved more touches, Orgeron said. Obviously, Derrius is a very good running back and we wanted to share the carries.THE TAKEAWAYSo much for the Alabama hangover for LSU, which had lost in two straight years to Arkansas. Both of those games came after physical matchups with the top-ranked Crimson Tide, but the Tigers were clearly the dominant team from their first possession -- when they went 75 yards on nine plays for an opening touchdown.POLL IMPLICATIONSDespite last weeks loss to Alabama, the Tigers remained in this weeks rankings and theyre likely to rise significantly after such a dominating win on Saturday. The Razorbacks, meanwhile, lost any good will they had with voters following last weeks 31-10 win over Florida and likely have to win out to return to the rankings this season.UP NEXTLSU returns home to host Florida in the makeup of the hurricane-postponed game from last month.The Razorbacks are on the road for their final two regular-season games, starting next week at Mississippi State.

Western Sydney striker Kerem Bulut has earned praise for his improved output in training, but coach Tony Popovic remains coy on whether hell travel to Perth. Wholesale Adidas Soccer Jerseys .Bulut was mysteriously dropped from the matchday squad hours before last Saturdays 1-1 draw with Central Coast, Brendon Santalab handed a start in his place and youngster Lachlan Scott a spot on the bench.Popovic later threw down the gauntlet to the 24-year-old, revealing he wanted more from him during team sessions.This week Bulut, who started the Wanderers first three games but is yet to score, is back in the squad and apparently performing on the training pitch again.Yet the coach would not confirm whether hed give the controversial forward another chance to break his drought against the Glory at nib Stadium on Sunday.Kerems been back training this week and hes training better than what he did last week, so thats a good improvement, Popovic said.Weve still got two sessions to go, theres still a bit of work to do today and tomorrow to see who will travel.Bruno Pinatares, another last-minute omission, has also been named in the squad though the Uruguayan midfielder has not played since being subbed off an hour into the Wanderers round-one 4-0 Sydney derby thumping.The Wanderers face a tough trip west in the knowledge individual errors have cost the seventh-placed team two wins and a spot in the top four.Two weeks ago they settled for a 2-2 home draw with Newcastle after allowing a 2-0 lead to slip through their fingers, before last weekend committing the same crime to draw 1-1 with the Mariners.At the moment isolated mistakes are being punished, Popovic said.We have to make sure that if that happens again weve done well enough to still be able to win the game.Slowly but surely throughout the year, Im sure youll see less and less mistakes.

Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- No. 24 Penn State brings a serious dose of momentum to Purdue for Saturdays game.After all, the Nittany Lions are coming off a 24-21 upset of then No. 2 Ohio State last weekend. Penn State (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) is firmly in the discussion for a division title, too.However, the Nittany Lions have not won in an opponents stadium since 2014 and have lost seven consecutive true road games, including two this season. Penn State coach James Franklin hopes his defensive front can bring help bring an end to that skid.I think Ohio State had given up five sacks all year, and we were able to get six sacks in the game, five coming in the second half, Franklin said.Purdue (3-4, 1-3) is well aware of Penn States aggressive defense, which ranks second in Big Ten sacks with 22. Only No. 2 Michigan has more (25).And in only their second game for interim coach Gerad Parker, the Boilermakers will be trying to protect quarterback David Blough with a starting offensive line that will include sophomore Kirk Barron at center, redshirt freshman Matt McCann at right tackle and possibly freshman Michael Mendez at left tackle.Keeping Penn State defensive ends Evan Schwan, Garrett Sickels and Torrence Brown away from Blough with a young offensive line will be a difficult task.Its a great challenge, and I know the guys in the (offensive linemen) room are looking forward to it, Barron said. If this was a time to deal with adversity and we werent ready, we would crumble. Nebraskas front was just as good. Penn State does a few different things, and theyre all good. They blitz a ton, so we need to be able to communicate well and make that something we are able to shut down.Here are some other things to watch in this game:McSORLEY EFFECTDuring Penn States three-game winning streak, quarterback Trace McSorley has been able to move the offense with his feet and his arm. He has at least 63 rushing yards and one touchdown in each off the past three games, totaling 858 total yards on the ground and in the air. Soccer Jerseys Outlet.

He is listed as a probable starter against Purdue, but Saeed Blacknall, who returned to action last week from a hand injury, could be the deep target if Thompkins cant play.MISSING PIECESPurdue continues to be without starting offensive left tackle Martesse Patterson and backup defensive backs Brandon Roberts and David Rose, all of whom are suspended for conduct not in keeping with team rules. Patterson is suspended after being arrested in September for felony assault on his roommate and breaking the roommates jaw. Parker has not given specifics about what led to the Roberts and Rose suspensions other than to say they are still members of the team but are not practicing.MEANINGFUL CALLParker said he was humbled on Monday when he received a call from Clemson coach Dabo Swinney congratulating Parker and his team for how well Purdue played in last weeks 27-14 loss at No. 7 Nebraska.He watched how hard we played, and for him to reach out and do that in a busy time for him and spend 26 minutes on the phone with me shows you why Clemson is where they are and why his guys believe in where he is, Parker said.SEEKING HOMEFIELD VICTORIESWhile Penn State has lost seven consecutive road games, Purdue is 1-12 in its 13 most recent Big Ten home games, defeating only Nebraska 55-45 last season in West Lafayette.The Boilermakers are 0-1 this season in Big Ten home games, losing to Iowa (49-35) on homecoming in a contest Purdue trailed 35-7 at halftime. Coach Darrell Hazell was fired the next day.

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Browns expensive year continues. Wholesale Jerseys China .Brown received a $24,309 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct this week after celebrating a touchdown with a dance routine in a Week 12 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Running back LeVeon Bell, who partnered with Brown on the dance, got a $12,154 fine. Browns fine was larger because hes a repeat offender.Browns tally now exceeds $60,000 after three separate unsportsmanlike fines for touchdown celebrations and one uniform violation for wearing baby blue cleats.Brown has 10 touchdowns this season. After one of his three scores against Indianapolis, Brown and Bell celebrated with an elaborate handshake and a shimmy.This dance was tame compared with his twerking dances that elicited fines earlier in the season.After picking up two fines in Week 1 against Washington, Brown told ESPN they were nothing to a boss.We all follow the rules, Brown said Friday. The NFL does a great job of taking care of the players.Then Brown, who earlier told reporters that he now goes by Ronald, said, Ronald just gotta follow the rules. China Jerseys Cheap .

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. Renault team boss Federeic Vasseur doubts 2017s regulation changes will lead to a wholesale reshuffle of the pecking order as some have predicted.Next years cars are set to be faster and wider, with Pirelli currently testing a thicker set of tyres for the season. Previous regulation changes have served to shake up the order, such as in 2009 or 2014, but Vasseur says there are no guarantees that will be the case next season.It wont totally reshuffle the cards, he said. Contrary to what you might think, I am not sure the new regulations will be such a big advantage for Renault because I think they will favour well-oiled structures with reactive staff, while we are still in the process of re-building the team.What can happen though is that teams fighting for positions in this years constructors championship are tempted to still allocate resources to improve their current chassis and find an extra tenth for the upcoming races.On the other hand, for a team like Mercedes, whose place has been more or less securedd for some time, its easier to shift its attention towards 2017. Authentic China Jerseys Wholesale. So it will not really reshuffle the order, structurally at least.Now, the big difference can come from the range of technical choices and philosophies favoured by the teams. We saw it at the time of Brawn GP [in 2009] when several squads had gone for double diffusers and the others had to catch up. This is where you can have the edge.Renault has struggled on its return to the grid as a manufacturer this year but Vasseur is comfortable with the decisions the team made to focus largely on 2017s changes.We had two choices: we could concentrate on 2016 and spend a lot of energy to progress and play catch up, or we could focus on 2017 very early, knowing there were major regulation changes in the pipeline. I dont know what happened at other teams but we switched to next year very early. Well see how it goes.

Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles met with NCAA officials in Indianapolis on Wednesday regarding potential recruiting violations, sources said. T. J. Logan Jersey .The NCAA says Briles had improper contact with a recruit. Baylor officials are attempting to get the level of infractions reduced, a source said. Specific details about the alleged violations werent immediately known.Briles meeting with NCAA officials came the day before his 34th birthday. A source said the NCAA investigation is not related to the schools ongoing sexual assault scandal.In 2015, Baylor officials suspended Briles one game for a violation related to evaluations of prospective recruits in the spring of 2015. Briles, the son of former Baylor coach Art Briles,?and receiver coach Tate Wallis were suspended and not allowed to coach in the 2015 season opener against Lamar.In January 2015, Sports Illustrated reported that the NCAA was looking into whether Briles committed a violation by visiting 2015 recruit J.W. Ketchum during a noncontact period in the fall of 2014.SI reported that NCAA investigators had contacted officials at Ketchums Marshall High School in Missouri City, Texas, about the alleged visit.Since being notified more than a year ago by the NCAA about potential violations involving two assistant football coaches, we have worked cooperatively with the NCAA and Thursdays hearing was just the next step in the process to bring it to closure, Baylor said in a statement to ESPN. We take all NCAA inquiries seriously and look forward to putting this behind us in the near future.Briles has been at Baylor since 2008 and is in his second season as Bears offensive coordinator. He is regarded as the Bears top recruiter and was named Big 12 recruiter of the year in 2014 by the websites Rivals, Scout and 247Sports.Baylor athletics director Mack Rhoades didnt respond to text messages seeking comment on Thursday night, and a university spokesman also declined to comment. NCAA rules prevent universities from commenting on ongoing investigations.Last week, Briles and other Baylor assistant coaches released a statement via Twitter, in which they disputed claims by a board of regents member that Art Briles was aware of an alleged gang rape involving former Bears players and didnt report it to proper authorities.Art Briles, who guided the Bears to a 65-37 record and at least a share of two Big 12 titles from 2008 to 15, was fired May 26 after an investigation by Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton found widespread problems with the way Baylor responded to allegations of sexual assault by students, including several football players. University president Kenneth Starr was demoted and then fired, and McCaw was suspended and then resigned.On Monday, acting head coach Jim Grobe announced that running back Shock Linwood was suspended for Saturdays game with Oklahoma because of attitude issues.

Josh Bynes Jersey. After a suggested period of rest, I will begin my rehabilitation and will be ready for the rematch as soon as possible.Cleverly, 29, said afterwards he would be willing to face Braehmer in an immediate rematch, possibly in Cardiff.Braehmers promoter Kalle Sauerland insists it was the correct decision to stop Braehmer from continuing, but now expects there to be a return fight.It was a tough call to make but absolutely the right decision, said Sauerland.

The game was extremely popular in England in those days. NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic . Television, which came to India much later, was big there even at that time. Wherever I went I was recognised as the wicketkeeper.We enjoyed the long tour. I was a teetotaller and they used to respect it in England. Fortunately I was not vegetarian and did not face too many problems.What struck me initially was that the crowd would clap for a maiden over. A good piece of fielding and a good throw was appreciated. Everyone applauds fine batting strokes but seeing sharp fielding appreciated showed how knowledgeable the crowd was.Frank Chester was one of the greatest umpires I have seen. There was no bias at all against us among the English umpires.Peter May was the best post-war English batsman I saw. Vinoo Mankad [slow left-arm] used to bowl a floater which used to come in with the same action instead of breaking away. Peter was batting [at Lords] when Vinoo bowled the floater on middle and leg. I knew the ball would come in, but I also understood that the great batsman that Peter was, he would pick it and try to glance it. Any other player would have blocked it but Peter glanced and I caught him down the leg side. At the end of the over, umpire Chester came running towards me from square leg and said,Well caught.What a fine wicketkeeper you are. I am surprised you werent selected for all the Tests, Chester told me later. That was a great compliment, but it was decided before the tour by the selectors that I and Khokhan Sen will play two Tests each.I once met the UK Deputy High Commissioner in the 70s. He asked me whether I had lofted Douglas Wright [England and Kent legspinner] for a six in Canterbury. The ball came to me in the crowd, he said.Godfrey Evans was an excellent keeper; whether it was diving, standing up, moving down the leg side, everything was well-timed.I got 50-odd in one of the tour games, and two girls came up to congratulate me after the days play. One of them pointed out my peculiar way of plonking my front foot forward and asked me why I did so. I must have subconsciously copied this style from DB Deodhar, but no one had ever pointed it out to me before. That is how closely people watch the game in England. The grounds used to be full, even for the county games.Fred Trueman was really fast, especially for us, as we didnt get such fast bowling in India. And to think that it was his debut series.Our tour allowances used to be meagre but the value of the rupee was also quite a lot then. To put it in perspective: when I was in college I had a lot of hair and used to get it cut for four [pauses] not rupees but annas [16 annas made a rupee]. Today there is no hair left but the cut costs Rs 60. We used to get about Rs 60 for five days of cricket. We were not professional back then; it is only now that the players are contracted. We were just happy to be representing India. It was a great honour. The idea of money was not there at all. Merchant and I received the same amount. There was no difference between what the top players got and what the others got.Vijay Merchant and Vijay Hazare were of the top class and on par. Hazare, Vijay Manjrekar and Phadkar were very good players of the hook. Pitches in England were covered only for the Test matches, not for the county games. The ball comes slowly off a wet wicket, but when it is drying it gets very difficult. It bounces, turns, shoots, skids; it all depends on the different patches on the surface.You were selected for your respective place in the side and no one bothered about things like practice. It was entirely up to you. Our own bowlers used to bowl in the nets to our batsmen. There were no county bowlers available for practice.I was having breakfast at a Norwich hotel when a lady came up to me and asked if I was an Indian cricketer. She chatted for a while and asked me to say hello to her little boy. I want him to know that the colour of the skin may be different but all people are the same, she said.Alec Bedser had a normal incoming delivery and a legcutter. I was facing him when Dattu Phadkar told me that the ball pitching on leg stump will be the legcutter. He used to bowl it with the same action and it was very difficult to pick.I was speaking to the Worcestershire groundsman about the nature of the wicket when a girl came and asked me what I was doing alone - everyone else was dancing merrily in a party in the pavilion. She asked me to dance with her but I politely refused. She was disappointed as she was sure I would relent. I later came to know that some team-mates had a bet with her to get me to the dance floor. I didnt dance on the entire tour.The concept of fielding was not given any importance then in India. Once, in the Bombay Pentangular, Muslims were nine down and needed four runs. I was fielding on the boundary, and kept a stroke down to three. Next ball, KC Ibrahim pushed to covers. Shute Banerjee, the fast bowler, just had to pick up the ball and throw, but he didnt, allowing the batsmen to get away. I am a fast bowler; I am not expected to throw, he said. No one bothered with fielding, it was only batting and bowling. If one dropped a catch, nobody said anything, even the bowlers.The basic job of a keeper during those days was keeping. They were usually sent to open the innings and take the shine off the new ball. I remember a game where the keeper opened and batted the entire day for some 30-odd runs.A keeper has something else to do apart from catching and stumping. I understood this in a charity match under CK Nayudu. A few overs after the start, CK came to me and asked whether I was observing what the bowler and the batsman were doing. I realised that keeping is also about being friend, philosopher and guide to the captain. This incident helped me when I led sides later.

With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. England 171 for 2 (Sciver 47*, Knight 45*) beat Sri Lanka 168 for 7 (Knight 2-29) by eight wicketsScorecard An unbroken 82-run partnership between Heather Knight and Natalie Sciver saw England to a comfortable eight-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first ODI in Colombo.The first encounter of the four-match series did not count towards the ICC Womens Championship, and qualification for the World Cup, but allowed England to start their tour well. Knight, Englands captain, was also the pick of the bowlers before helping chase down a target of 169 with more than 20 overs to spare.Having chosen to bat, Sri Lanka posted a 50 stand for the first wicket before Knight removed Hasini Perera for 26. Her opening partner Nipuni Hansika also made 26 but was dismissed by Danielle Hazell three overs later. Cheap Jerseys From China. Sri Lankas top order all chipped in with scores in the 20s, captain Dilani Manodara making 27 before being caught behind of Alex Hartleys left-arm spin, but no one could go on. Beth Langston removed Chamari Atapattu and Katherine Brunt then struck twice and Knight claimed her second with the final ball of the innings.Englands openers got off to a good start in reply, Lauren Winfield and Tammy Beaumont putting on 77 before Atapattu parted them. Beaumont went on to make 41 before falling to Inoka Ranaweera but Knight and Sciver saw England through by scoring at more than a run a ball.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic . -- New court records say that an associate of Aaron Hernandez told police the former New England Patriot put guns in a box in his basement after returning from the industrial park where his friend was fatally shot. An affidavit released by Attleboro District Court says Carlos Ortiz told investigators Hernandez put firearms in the black box after Odin Lloyds killing. The document indicates one was a small gun Ortiz handed Hernandez after they returned home with another associate, Ernest Wallace. Ortiz said he earlier saw Hernandez with an additional "large handgun." Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 about a mile from Hernandezs North Attleborough, Mass., home. His attorneys have said the case against him is circumstantial and they are confident he will be exonerated. Authorities believe Lloyd was killed with a .45-calibre Glock, which hasnt been recovered. Prosecutors say video surveillance from Hernandezs home before and after the killing shows him holding a gun that appears to be a Glock. Police divers have been searching this week in a lake in Bristol, Conn., Hernandezs hometown. Authorities have declined to comment on the search, but have confirmed it is linked to the investigation. Prosecutors have not said who fired the fatal shots. But court records released in Florida say Ortiz told investigators Wallace said it was Hernandez. The new documents released in Massachusetts indicate authorities seized a cellphone and credit and bank cards from a relative of Hernandez, identified as Tanya Singleton-Valderamma, of Bristol. Ortiz told investigators he and Wallace drove to Bristol after Lloyds killing and that he was dropped off at Singleton-Valderammas house, according to the affidavit. Ortiz said he discussed Lloyds killing with her. The records say that Singleton-Valderamma later purchased with a credit card, under a previous name, a Greyhound ticket from Macon, Ga., to Miami, Fla., and that Wallace travelled on a bus between those two points. He later turned himself in in Miramar, Fla., where his parents live, and is being held in Massachusetts on a charge of accessory to murder after the fact. The affidavit says it is not known how Wallace travelled from Connecticut to Georgia. Ortiz is facing a gun charge in connection with the case. Both Ortiz and Wallace have pleaded not guilty. Hernandez is being held without bail and is next due in court on Aug. 22 for a probable cause hearing. Stitched Nike NBA Jerseys . That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected. Signed Nike NBA Jerseys . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. Some phrases are versatile enough, or maybe just vague enough, to be glowing praise and cutting criticism -- both, or either, all at the same time. Like, say, this one:Rick Pitino is one of a kind.It isnt easy to summarize the breadth of three-decade coaching careers. In Pitinos case, its almost impossible. But if there is a phrase up to the job, it is that one -- enough to include both the basketball brilliance and the off-court seediness that have in recent years dueled for prominence in Pitinos story.The sordid side scored its latest victory last October, when former escort Katina Powells book, Breaking Cardinal Rules, alleged that former Louisville assistant coach Andre McGee used cash and tickets to pay escorts to have sex with recruits and players in the player dormitories of Pitinos program.On Thursday, it pushed its way to the front once more. In a notice of allegations sent to Louisville president Neville Pinto, the NCAA Committee on Infractions alleged that Pitino -- while not complicit nor charged with any direct violation himself -- did not monitor his assistant coach and failed to actively [look] for red flags.In other words: Pitino didnt know, but he should have.Overall, the notice was a minor victory for Louisville, as ESPNs Dana ONeil explained; the school avoided charges of lack of institutional control and failure to monitor, which have traditionally led to the committees most severe penalties. But the NCAAs reasonable insistence on holding coaches responsible for what happens at their programs -- the same way, say, a bank CEO is responsible for the widespread scamming of customers -- is likely to bind Pitino to the words sex and scandal in the popular consciousness long after his career is done.Because its not the first time. Before there was Katina Powell, there was Karen Cunagin Sypher. In 2009, Pitino revealed that he had been the target of an extortion attempt by Sypher and her husband, Louisville equipment manager Tim Sypher, shortly before the two were arraigned and charged in U.S. District Court. The FBI was involved, Pitino announced at the time and ... no, seriously: The FBI was involved.College sports can throw its fair share of David Lynch-ian weirdness at the wall, but this was something new. Later, in court, Pitino admitted to having sex with Cunagin Sypher at a Louisville restaurant, then giving her $3,000 when she later asked for money for an abortion. The legal process forced Pitino to reveal personal details on a nightmarishly embarrassing scale, to say nothing of the moral chastisement shoveled his way.It was easy then -- as it is now -- to forget the reason why Pitino kept his job in the wake of the Sypher disaster: Because hes an incredible basketball coach.Now 64 years old, on the eve of his 31st season as a ccollegiate head coach, Pitino has won 743 games, averaged 24. Authentic Nike NBA Gear. 7 wins per season, claimed 10 regular-season conference titles, 12 conference tournaments, 53 NCAA tournament victories. He is the only man in NCAA history to lead three different programs to a Final Four and?the only one to win national titles at two different schools.His first, at Kentucky, popularized a demoralizing full-court press, a tactic so effective, with a team so talented, that both Pitino and the Boston Celtics thought it could work in the NBA. It didnt, and after four seasons Pitino returned to college basketball, this time at UKs hated rival.Nearly two decades after his first, Pitino would win his second championship. The Untouchables 1996 title was brute force; the 2013 triumph was a tour de force, a showcase for the more subtle, more flexible defensive mastery Pitino wields like a magic wand.The Cardinals have ranked among the nations five best defenses in each of the past six seasons, and eight of the past 10, and they have done so with merely good, but never overwhelming, talent. Pitino doesnt press as much as he used to, though his teams can. They play a lot of zone, but also a lot of man, and a lot of in-between. Occasionally, Pitino will clap his hands, or stomp his foot, and in an instant his defenders will execute a perfect half-court trap -- almost as if the coach was queuing commands in a video game.He might be the greatest defensive mind in the history of the college game. That is not an exaggeration.At a news conference Thursday, as Pitino insisted he was not guilty of failing to monitor his staff (Im guilty of trusting someone, Pitino said), the coach rattled off a long list of his former assistants: Billy Donovan, Mick Cronin, Andy Enfield, Jim OBrien, Frank Vogel, Herb Sendek, Tubby Smith. The point was about trust, but the reminder was implied: The mans legacy as a coach runs as deep and wide as any in the sport. That is how he will be remembered.Yet there will also be the other side. It will be nearly impossible to shake entirely.Odds are, this season or (more likely) next, Pitino, yet another legendary coach staring down some form of scandal in the twilight years of his career, will face some sort of suspension, and will be forced to watch his team from home. The defense he will see -- not man, not zone, maybe both, maybe neither -- will be the kind only he could have devised. The scandal that forced him to that vantage in the first place will be seedier than any college basketball scandal since the last -- even weirder -- scandal involving Rick Pitino.He really is one of a kind. This is a compliment. It is also not.

CHICAGO -- When Theo Epstein first joined the Chicago Cubs as the teams president in 2011, he said every chance to win would be considered sacred. Wholesale Air Max 90 .But even with the Cubs maintaining a healthy lead in the National Leagues Central Division, Epstein knows he cant afford to take anything for granted. So when the Cubs traded for what Epstein called a game-changer in highly sought-after closer Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees Monday, Epstein said it improved the Cubs chances of capturing a World Series title this fall.The goal is to win three postseason series and thats not an easy thing to do, Epstein said. You need dynamic players and we felt like we could really benefit from an elite talent -- a game-changing type pitcher like Aroldis Chapman.In 31.1 innings this season with the Yankees, Chapman has converted 20 of 21 save opportunities and has posted a 2.01 ERA with 44 strikeouts.Chapman is set to join the Cubs Tuesday before his new team faces its crosstown rivals, the Chicago White Sox, in the second of a four-game series. Kyle Hendricks (9-6) will start for the Cubs and will face James Shields (4-12).The Cubs bullpen was a high priority heading into next weeks trade deadline and Epstein believes adding Chapman will be a positive add-on moving forward.I cannot wait to take the mound a Wrigley Field and look forward to helping my teammates deliver a championship to Chicago, Chapman said in a statement Monday that also expressed regret for his role in a domestic violence incident that led to a 30-game suspension.Cubs manager Joe Maddon hasnt yet decided how adding Chapman to the Cubs bullpen would impact his staff of relief pitchers. Maddon said each would be bumped up an inning, including current closer Hector Rondon.In the sixth, seventh and eighth (innings), it really opens things up, Maddon said. ... (Chapman) is a unique pitcher, hes unique with his ability to throw the ball that hard regularly.The White Sox have already seen Chapman in May when Chapman picked up his second and third saves. Manager Robin Ventura said in a series that already has a lot of build-up due to the in-town rivalry, his hitters will know what to expect.Hes tough -- he throws hard, Ventura said Monday. Its a live arm and its a nice addition to have. Well definitely have to turn it up when hes pitching.Ventura said the White Sox have already moved on from an incident involving Chris Sale, who will start in the series finale Thursday at Wrigley Field. Sale was suspended for five days after cutting up 1976 throwback jerseys the White Sox were to have worn on Saturday when Sale was scheduled to pitch.The incident wont impact how the White Sox compete against the Cubs, Ventura said.Guys have seen a lot of stuff and its about playing, Ventura said. I think theyre about playing and well go with that until something needs to be addressed. As far as playing, guys are just moving on and playing. Air Max 90 2018 . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. Womens Air Max 90 . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- After enduring the embarrassment of failing to go deep in the Home Run Derby, and the near-constant jeering from fans of the Kansas City Royals, Robinson Cano finally hit one into the seats at Kauffman Stadium on Sunday. It proved to be important, too. The two-run shot by the Yankees second baseman gave his team the lead in the third inning, and that was just about all the offence Hiroki Kuroda needed on the mound. He pitched into the eighth inning as New York beat Kansas City 4-2 to finish off a three-game sweep. "This ballpark is big," Cano said. "I mean, this is a tough place to hit home runs." Cano, of course, was captain of the AL squad for last years derby in Kansas City, and had said he would choose the Royals Billy Butler for his team. But he went back on his word, and was booed lustily by the home crowd while failing to hit a single home run himself. The jeers continued during the All-Star game, and didnt let up when the Yankees returned to town for their only visit this season -- at least, until Cano finally went deep. "Hes just a really good hitter," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Thats probably the best way to say it. Hes just a really good hitter." Lest he need any advice on going deep in Kansas City, he might try asking Vernon Wells. The Yankees outfielder homered for the second straight game on Sunday, helping to pace a New York offence that scored just enough for Kuroda (5-2) to win for the fifth time in six decisions. He allowed only a sacrifice fly by the Royals Alex Gordon and an RBI groundout by Alcides Escobar over 7 2-3 innings. The right-hander at one point went 15 batters without allowing a hit, and was so fired up that he argued with plate umpire Laz Diaz over a call in the eighth inning. "I guess it was the heat of the moment," Kuroda said through a translator, without relaying exactly what he said to Diaz. "I was fired up. Its not something I would normally do." David Robertson retired Billy Butler to end the Royals eighth-inning rally, and Mariano Rivera worked around a leadoff single in the ninth to remain perfect in 15 save opportunities. Rivera has converted his last 29 chances against the Royals dating to Aug. 18, 1998, his longest active streak against any team. His only other blown save against them happened in 1996. "Its amazing. He just continues to do it," Girardi said. "Anyone who wants to argue hes not the greatest closer of all time, I dont know who it is." Ervin Santana (3-2) gave up Canos two-run shot in the third inning, Wells solo homer two pitches laterr and an RBI single by Wells in the fifth. Cheap Air Max 90 Store. He departed with one out in the sixth and with the Royals well on their way to their sixth loss in their last seven games. "I didnt have my best stuff today, but I just tried to keep my team in the ballgame," he said. "Just a couple of pitches. Thats how it is against the Yankees." Santana, who hadnt lost since his season debut April 3 at the White Sox, began his career 5-1 against the boys in pinstripes. Hes now 0-6 in his last nine starts against them. The Royals struck first when Jarrod Dyson doubled leading off the game. He advanced to third on a bunt by Escobar and then scored on Gordons sacrifice fly. That was all theyd get off Kuroda until the eighth inning. New York pulled ahead in the third when Chris Stewart singled and Cano pounded the first pitch he saw over the bullpen in right field. It was his sixth career homer off Santana, two more than the All-Star second baseman has had against any other pitcher. It was especially gratifying given his history at the K. Cano was the captain of the AL squad for last years Home Run Derby in Kansas City, and had said he would choose Butler for his team. But he went back on his word, and was booed lustily by the Royals home crowd while failing to hit a single home run himself. The jeers continued during the All-Star game, and didnt let up when the Yankees returned to town for their only visit this season -- at least, until Cano finally went deep. Wells, who hit the go-ahead two-run homer on Saturday, followed with a solo shot, and then drove in Brett Gardner with a single down the third-base line in the fifth inning. That was enough to ensure the Royals would be swept for the first time this season. "I dont know the reasoning behind it," Royals manager Ned Yost said, "but youre just one hit away from opening up the flood gates. Sometimes that one hit in a crucial situation just relaxes everybody and all of a sudden you go on an offensive tear for a weak or 10 days. So we just wait for that to happen." NOTES: The Yankees put INF Eduardo Nunez on the 15-day DL, selected SS Alberto Gonzalez from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre and put 1B Mark Teixeira on the 60-day DL. ...

The ”Death Lineup” breathed new life into the Golden State Warriors.

It was yet another reminder: In the NBA playoffs Authentic Geron Christian Jersey , where even a brief downward slide can be enough to end a season, even the best teams won’t hesitate when they feel a need to shake up their starting lineups.

Desperate times in the first round sent Cleveland to desperate lineup measures. Toronto, the team that finished with the NBA’s second-best regular season record, sought a spark by changing its starting five against the Cavs for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Utah showed Houston a new look Sunday in Game 4 of their West semifinal matchup, and while the Jazz slowed the high-powered Rockets at times they still fell into a 3-1 series deficit.

And then there’s the Warriors, who were coming off a big loss in Game 3 against New Orleans so they put their five best players – Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green – on the floor Sunday to start a game for the first time all season. The result was a rout , one that allowed the Warriors to head home with a 3-1 lead in their series against the Pelicans.

”Anytime we’ve been in any danger over the years, we’ve sort of gone to this lineup,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. ”The lineup worked or whatever, but it’s not about the lineup. It’s really not.”

All due respect to Kerr, he might be overstating that one.

Golden State’s starting five on Sunday – some call it ”The Death Lineup” because of how opponents tend to succumb against it Customized Miami Dolphins Jerseys , others prefer ”Hamptons Five” because Curry, Thompson, Iguodala and Green were the players who went to the Hamptons two summers ago in an effort to lure Durant to the Warriors – was absolutely dominant. charted them as being on the floor together for 18 minutes, during which they outscored the Pelicans 52-26.

Every other Warriors lineup used over the other 30 minutes played the Pelicans even, 66-66.

”We got momentum on our side really early,” Curry said. ”Every single person on the floor in that lineup is a playmaker. And so we have multiple options and just look for the best shot on every possession.”

It wasn’t exactly an in-case-of-emergency-break-glass move by the Warriors.

But these NBA playoffs have seen some of those as well.

Cleveland, which has a chance to win its way back into the Eastern Conference finals for the fourth consecutive year on Monday night if it can finish off a sweep of Toronto, almost didn’t even get to this round. Facing a win-or-else Game 7 in the first round, the Cavaliers put LeBron James, Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson – the four holdovers from their 2016 NBA championship team – out to start with Kyle Korver.

It was their first time starting together this season. James survived cramps, scored 45, and the Cavaliers held off Indiana to advance. They haven’t lost since.

”All five of us, we knew what we could get out of each other ,” James said afterward. ”We’ve been in situations before. We’ve played in big games before. That’s a comfort.”

Toronto could use some of that comfort.

Since James entered the league, only one No. 1 seed has gotten swept in the conference playoffs – Atlanta, in 2015, by James and the Cavaliers. Toronto shook up its lineup in Game 3 on Saturday night by trying Fred VanVleet instead of Serge Ibaka, but the Raptors fell into the dreaded 3-0 series deficit when James made a running bank shot at the buzzer for the win.

Everything is on the table for the Raptors now.

”You realize how big it is in this moment to get a victory,” Raptors star DeMar DeRozan said.

Sometimes, even subtle changes pay off nicely.

Boston inserted role player Semi Ojeleye into its starting lineup before Game 5 of the Celtics‘ first-round series against Milwaukee. Ojeleye’s role: Find a way to slow down Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Ojeleye was on the floor to help open the next three games, the first starts of his rookie season. He scored 10 points in those games, though none of that mattered much to the Celtics. His primary role was defense, since Antetokounmpo averaged 27.8 points on 62 percent shooting in the first four games of the series.

With Ojeleye in the lineup, Antetokounmpo averaged 23 points on 50 percent shooting in the last three games – and seemed particularly out of sorts in Game 5, the first one where the Celtics made the change.

Boston won that night by five points, and wound up surviving the series in seven games.

”He did a great job,” Antetokounmpo said Kody Clark Capitals Jersey , tipping his cap to Ojeleye. ”He played hard. He competed.”

And that’s the secret, Kerr said. It’s not about the names, he insists. It’s about how well they perform.

It’s become a bit of a running joke around the Warriors that Kerr won’t reveal his starting lineups until he absolutely has to, no matter how many times he is asked.

But this time, after the results on Sunday, Kerr isn’t holding his cards to his chest. Game 5 is on Tuesday night. The ”Death Lineup” starts.

After months of questions about the health of his heart sent him tumbling down the draft board until being taken by the Oakland Raiders in the fifth round, Maurice Hurst was happy to get on the practice field and turn the conversation to football.

Hurst took part in his first practice as a pro Friday when the Raiders opened their rookie minicamp with three promising pass rushers they hope can bolster their defense.

"Just trying to get all of that stuff behind me, try to get people to stop talking about it," Hurst said. "You know, some sort of issue or all of those kinds of things 鈥?just try to move past that and focus on playing football and just having fun out there."

Hurst was one of the most productive defensive players in the country last season at Michigan. He had 5陆 sacks as an interior rusher and led all nose tackles and defensive tackles with 49 total quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.

Hurst was sent home from the combine after a heart issue was detected. Hurst said it was something he has dealt with for a long time and hadn't impacted him on the field. He said he has been cleared by doctors at Harvard and Michigan but that didn't prevent every team passing on a player projected as a first-rounder until the Raiders got him at 140th overall.

"I'm not going to answer any more health questions on Hurst," coach Jon Gruden said. "I realize there are a lot of ghost stories out there about unnamed sources that have their opinion on why we shouldn't have drafted him. This man played at Michigan. I know the head coach there. They've looked after him carefully. We're happy to have him in any round, and I'm excited for him and I'm really excited for him because he's an Oakland Raider and he's a great kid. I hope you just judge him on the field. He's been cleared medically and I'll just leave it at that."

The additions of Hurst, second-round defensive tackle P.J. Hall and third-round defensive end Arden Key give the Raiders help on a defensive front that has ranked near the bottom of the NFL in sacks in recent years despite the presence of edge rushers Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin.

The Raiders have the second fewest sacks in the NFL the past two seasons with just 56 鈥?one more than the last-place New York Jets. Nearly two-thirds of those sacks have come from Mack (21 1/2) and Irvin (15) Authentic Martavis Bryant Jersey , as the edge players have gotten almost no help from the inside rushers.

"It was a major priority," Gruden said. "It's a commodity that's hard to find. I've heard a lot of critics have talked about the risk involved. There is risk involved with every pick."

While Hurst faced questions about his health, Hall and Key had other concerns.

Hall had 42 sacks and 86 1/2 tackles for loss in his college career, but that came at the FCS level for Sam Houston State instead of against top-flight competition.

Gruden called Hall and Hurst the top two interior rushers in the draft, a position of major need after Oakland had just 1 1/2 sacks last year from players playing inside full-time.

Key proved himself at the highest level of college football for LSU in the SEC. He had 11 sacks in 2016 and 20 overall in three seasons in college, but he has had off-field problems and checked himself into rehab last spring.

If Oakland can get production out of those three players, that should go a long way in improving a defense that has been a weakness for the team in recent years.

"We all work together," Key said. "We have edge rushers that can get to the quarterback and the quarterback steps up. Inside guys get the sack. We have inside guys that get to the quarterback and make the quarterback roll out, the edge rushers get the sack. So we all work together."

NOTES: Fourth-round pick CB Nick Nelson sat out as he heals from a knee injury. ... The Raiders signed undrafted TE Marcus Baugh, WR Saeed Blacknall, LB Jason Cabinda, C Alex Officer, K Eddy Pineiro and FB Nick Sharga.

Marcus Mariota is proving to be a quick study with a new coach installing yet another offensive system for the Tennessee Titans.

Maybe Mike Vrabel will stick around for a while for Tennessee.

The Titans had a memorable opening series in Vrabel's preseason debut as coach before the Packers pulled away in a matchup of the backups for a 31-17 win on Thursday night.

"It was cool. I love this team Authentic Evander Kane Jersey , I do. I love these guys," Vrabel said about first time on the sideline leading the Titans.

Mariota was 2 of 3 for 42 yards with a 4-yard scoring pass to Darius Jennings on the opening drive of Mike Vrabel's first preseason game as Titans coach. Mariota also had one carry for 7 yards before leaving after the nine-play series.

It was a nice, if brief, start for Mariota. He's picking up a new scheme under his third head coach in four seasons.

"I thought we got into rhythm. We were able to go down and score a touchdown, which is always good. And hopefully we can just continue to build off of that," Mariota said.

Packers receiver Davante Adams needed just one series to show he was in midseason form before joining starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and many other Packers starters on the sideline.

But backup Brett Hundley showed glimpses of improvement under center, going 9 of 14 for 108 yards and an 8-yard score to running back Jamaal Williams on the drive after Tennessee's score.

Hundley did his best impression of Rodgers by hitting Adams in stride down the left sideline for a 48-yard completion. The Packers' No. 1 receiver had a step on new Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler before getting pushed out at the 3, setting up Williams' score two plays later.

"I thought he had a couple drives, obviously the big play, and that's what this game is all about," coach Mike McCarthy said. "You've got to hit your big plays."

Hundley also threw an interception. But It was a promising outing overall for him after the Packers struggled to move the ball through the air when Hundley was under center while Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone in 2017.

"I think for me this year Authentic Jeremy Kerley Jersey , the anticipation, it's the understanding, it's the game slowing down, so things are a lot easier," Hundley said.


Hundley, who is competing with DeShone Kizer for the backup job, got the start and played well into the second quarter. Kizer went 9 of 18 for 134 yards, hitting rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 51-yard gain to the Titans 11 in the third quarter.


Veteran Kenny Vaccaro started alongside All-Pro Kevin Byard at safety and had one tackle after playing into the second quarter. Formerly of the Saints, Vaccaro signed on Saturday after the Titans lost starter Johnathan Cyprien last week to a torn left ACL.

"He's come in and really focused on learning his job, becoming a good teammate, practicing hard Mike Marjama Seattle Mariners Jersey ," Vrabel said about Vaccaro.


"Really what we wanted to accomplish as a football team was establish our play style, and secondly was just try to create as many opportunities as we possibly could for our players." 鈥?McCarthy.


Titans: WR Corey Davis dressed and warmed up but did not play. The Titans' top wideout did not practice Monday or Tuesday after leaving practice early Saturday. ... S Dane Cruikshank (left shoulder) walked off after landing hard on the turf while trying to recover Quentin Rollins' fumble on a punt return.

Packers: S Jermaine Whitehead (back) left in the second quarter. S Josh Jones walked back to the locker room in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. ... WR Randall Cobb (ankle) and DL Mike Daniels (quad) were among 18 Packers who did not dress.


There were no apparent displays of protest by players on either team during the national anthem.


Titans: Host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Aug. 18.

Packers: Host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 16.

This weekend’s series in Arlington, Texas, is a homecoming for Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story, who grew up coming to Texas Rangers games and is playing in the stadium for the first time with the goal of doing some damage to the team he used to root for.

Story had two hits and two RBIs in Colorado’s 9-5 win over Texas on Friday at Globe Life Park in his first big-league appearance in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

The Rockies will send left-hander Kyle Freeland (6-6, 3.68 ERA) to the mound to try to clinch the series and Texas will counter with left-hander Mike Minor (4-4, 5.65).

Story, 25, is a graduate of nearby Irving High School. He entered Friday night’s game against the Rangers leading the National League with 50 RBIs, and was tied for fourth in the NL with 14 home runs and in total bases with 135.

After struggling with the bat and with strikeouts in the early part of the year, Story is hitting .388 (21-for-54) in June.

Story was injured in 2016 when the Rockies last played in Arlington and had to watch from the dugout during that series. He had about 200 friends and family in attendance Friday and they were very vocal.

“This is special — I grew up watching the Rangers here Adidas Mike Green Jersey ,” Story told before Friday’s game. “They were my team when I was younger – this was my Yankee Stadium growing up. Very exciting, lots of emotions for sure. It was tough I couldn’t play in ’16, but I’m looking forward to this.”

Friday’s win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Rockies, and the Rangers lost their seventh in a row.

Texas played without catcher Robinson Chirinos, who was suspended for a game after a pushing and shoving altercation at home plate on Wednesday with the Dodgers’ Matt Kemp.

Kemp decided to appeal his suspension, and Chirinos sat out the first game of the series against Colorado.

“I didn’t expect there would be suspensions,” Texas manager Jeff Banister said. “I thought in the scrum it was pretty benign, and it was over pretty quickly. The shoving match looked a little worse than it was. But Major League Baseball doesn’t want that environment in a game. That was taken into account.”

The Rangers’ backup catcher, Carlos Perez, had to leave Friday’s game in the second inning after sustaining a sprained ankle on a play at the plate. X-rays on Perez’s ankle later Friday were negative.

He was replaced by rookie catcher Jose Trevino, who played in his first major league game after being called up from Double-A Frisco on Friday afternoon.

Texas also played Friday’s game without right fielder Nomar Mazara because of a sore left wrist.

Freeland has been the Rockies’ best pitcher of late; in his last nine starts Cheap Avonte Maddox Jersey , he is 6-3 with a 2.93 ERA. He took the loss in an 8-3 defeat at home against Colorado on June 10 in his most recent start, working six innings while allowing four runs and four hits with four walks and eight strikeouts.

Freeland will be making his first career start against the Rangers.

Minor will make his 13th start of the season on Saturday. His four wins are tied for team lead and the most among Texas starters, He had a quality start in last outing, but has gone 1-3 with a 6.96 ERA in his past six starts to raise his season ERA from 4.36 to its current 5.65.

Minor will be working on extended six days’ rest because of off days Monday and Thursday. He last worked and took no decision in the Rangers’ 4-3 loss on June 9 at home against Houston. He is 3-2 with a 5.73 ERA in eight career appearance, six of them starts, against Colorado.
