They stuttered further when Asghar Stanikzai was bowled for 13 in the next over.Afghanistan, however, recovered with a 40-run stand between Mohammad Nabi (26) and debutant Karim Janat (25) as the duo pushed the score past 100. UAE would have sensed another opening when Janat was run-out in the 17th over but Najibullah Zadran dashed their hopes by blasting 31 runs off only 10 balls in the slog overs.After smashing Rohan Mustafa for consecutive sixes in the 18th over, he struck a six and two fours off Amjad Javed and another set of those in the last over against Shahzad to help Afghanistan accumulate 55 runs in the last three overs.UAEs top order was rocked by Janats medium-pace as he broke the opening stand in the fourth over and removed Mustafa and Shahzad within a space of three balls in the seventh over, leaving UAE on 41 for 3. However, Shaiman Anwar Rameez Shahzad joined forces to score at nearly nine runs per over to help them past 100.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers offensive line is stuck between a state of shock and the need to move forward.The surprising release of three-time Pro Bowl left guard Josh Sitton over the weekend has been tough on the close-knit unit.Hes going to be a tough presence to fill there, a tough void there, right guard T.J. Lang said on Monday.Coach Mike McCarthy announced the Packers are going to fill Sittons spot with Lane Taylor when the season begins on Sept. 11 at Jacksonville.The timing of Sittons release so close to the start of the regular season doesnt help either, Lang said.Weve got to get ready to play a game in six days, the veteran added. Weve got to move on quick, because Jacksonvilles right around the corner.A fourth-year pro, Taylor has started two games in his career. He is coming off a preseason finale against Kansas City in which he was penalized twice for holding and once for a false start, and appeared to be late in picking up a blitz that resulted in a sack.Ive put in a lot of hours, a lot of time, taken a lot of reps. Im going to look forward to the opportunity, Taylor said.Sitton, who signed with the NFC North-rival Chicago Bears on Sunday, was a second-team All-Pro last season and a durable starter who missed only two games over the previous seven seasons.I have all the confidence in the world in Lane, McCarthy said. Hes earned this opportunity.While McCarthy said that he likes what Taylor has done in run blocking, The pass protection and some of the things -- particularly how we do it and what we do -- is something he just needs some game experience at. Thats part of the leap when you make changes.Sitton, 30, was entering the last year of a five-year, $33.75 million extension signed afterr the 2011 season. Cheap Cole Madison Jersey. The contracts of three other offensive line starters -- left tackle David Bakhtiairi, center JC Tretter and right guard T.J. Lang -- are also due to expire after this season.In announcing Sittons release Saturday, general manager Ted Thompson said the move was made with a focus on what is best for the team and the growth of the offensive line.Sitton was known to play through injuries. He also caused a minor stir at midseason last year when, during a midweek football show for the Green Bay Press-Gazette newspaper, he said that the Packers offense had become too predictable. Teams know exactly what were going to do every week.Asked if the Packers were better with Taylor, McCarthy said, I dont think its fair to say that about anybody ... Every decision we make is in the best interest of improving all aspects of our program. This is not about one player. This about our football team.Lang thought the offensive line would be fine with Taylor, but Sitton had seen just about every look imaginable and could provide tips or wrinkles to combat those schemes.Thatll come in time with Lane, Lang said. But I have no doubt hes going to be a guy who can go out there and be the guy and do a good job of it.Game notes McCarthy said WR Jordy Nelson, who is coming back from a knee injury is a full go for practice this week and is expected to play against the Jaguars. ...

BOONE, N. Poland World Cup Jerseys .C. -- When Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya threw an interception on a goal line that gave briefly gave Appalachian State some life in the third quarter, he didnt panic -- nor did his teammates.In years past we would close in and fold a little bit and maybe guys would point fingers and go back and forth, Kaaya said.Instead, Kaaya led the 25th-ranked Hurricanes on back-to-back touchdown drives as Miami soundly defeated Appalachian State 45-10 in front of a record crowd of 34,658 at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Kaaya threw for 368 yards and three scores, Mark Walton ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns as Miami improved to 3-0.Kaaya, who is expected to be one of the top quarterbacks taken in the 2017 NFL draft, took a shot to his leg on the interception and hobbled off. But he returned for the next series and continued to play.He said he will be fine for Miamis next game in two weeks.There is a lot of weight on his shoulders, but he handles it well, Miami coach Mark Richt said.Miami came in having scored a school-record 108 points in its first two games in wins over Florida A&M and Florida Atlantic. The Hurricanes picked up where they left off, scoring on their first four possessions to build a 24-0 lead.Walton set the tone, busting through the middle of the line on Miamis first play from scrimmage and racing 80 yards untouched to the end zone.I saw him break a tackle and I almost immediately put my hands up like, `Touchdown, Kaaya said. The red sea just parted and he just hit it.Kaaya added first quarter TD passes to David Njoku and Stacy Coley.Coley finished with five catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns and Ahmmon Richards had 142 yards receiving on four catches.We have been tackling really well, but we didnt tackle well today, Appalachian State coach Scott Satterfield said. They are big backs, but we have to bring them down.THE TAKEAWAYMIAMI: The Hurricanes did what Tennessee couldnt do in dominating Appalachian State. Some questioned why Miami scheduled a road game against a team notorious for pulling big upsets (ask Michigan) and scaring the life out of others (ask Tennessee). Richt said Appalachian States close loss to Tennessee got his teams attention.Everybody knew that it was not a fluke, Richt said. It was physical play. It got our attention. I did not have to say something magical to get them fired up.APPALACHIAN STATE: The Mountaineers came in brimming with confidence after taking then-No. 9 Tennessee to overtime in the season opener and winning 18 of its last 21 games. But they simply couldnt compete with Miamis athletic ability in a humbling loss.Theres a reason why they call them `Power 5 -- Tennessee is really good, Miami is really good, Satterfield said. There is not one player on our team that they wanted.POLL IMPLICATIONSMIAMI: It is possible Miami could make a small jump in the poll with a third straight impressive win. Remember, the Hurricanes beat a good team -- one that that lost 20-13 to the Vols in overtime.KEY NUMBERSMIAMI: Walton came in with back-to-back 100-yard games and needed only three carries to go over that mark against the Mountaineers. He now has seven TDs rushing on the season.APPALACHIAN STATE: QB Taylor Lamb was held to 115 yards passing and completed just 10 of 21 passes with one touchdowns and one interception. He was sacked three times.INJURY REPORTMarcus Cox, the Mountaineers leading rusher, appeared to injure himself at the end of a 55-yard touchdown run that was called back because of a holding penalty in the first half. Cox had seven carries for 30 yards.UP NEXTMIAMI: The Hurricanes are off next weekend before opening ACC play Oct. 1 at Georgia Tech. Miami has won six of its last seven games against the Yellow Jackets.APPALACHIAN STATE: The Mountaineers (1-2) visit Akron next Saturday, their final tuneup before beginning play in the Sun Belt Conference.---AP college football: .

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Nevada took a giant step closer to becoming home of the Raider Nation on Friday, after state lawmakers narrowly approved a hotel tax increase that would put $750 million in public money toward an NFL stadium partly funded by billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson.A cadre of lobbyists for the project strained over the past week to overcome conservative anxiety over a tax increase and liberal objections to subsidizing one of the worlds richest men, eventually securing the bare minimum number of Assembly votes to hit the required two-thirds majority. Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, who views the $1.9 billion stadium as a way to ensure Las Vegas continued dominance in tourism, is expected to sign the deal Monday in Las Vegas.Raiders owner Mark Davis praised Sandoval and lawmakers in a statement.All parties have worked extremely hard to develop and approve this tremendous stadium project that will serve as a proud new home for the entire Raider Nation, he said.But its far from settled that Oaklands team will move to Las Vegas, a city thats only now ending its drought of professional sports after landing an NHL expansion team over the summer. Oakland still holds out hope that it can keep the Raiders from leaving them a second time, and a relocation needs the blessing of three-fourths of NFL team owners -- a conservative bunch thats historically shunned Las Vegas because of its legalized sports betting.Still, proponents who envision Raiders games in Sin City by 2020 will have a persuasive bargaining chip to show when NFL owners meet next week: The prospect of a sparkling, 65,000-seat domed venue close to the Las Vegas Strip, backed by $650 million from Adelson, $500 million from the Raiders and the NFL and a $750 million public investment.Its exciting, said Andy Abboud, chief lobbyist for casino mogul Adelsons Las Vegas Sands, after the financing deal passed its toughest vote on Friday. But this is really about jobs, and I think at the end of the day people saw this as a fantastic economic stimulus package.Sandoval called lawmakers into a rare special session to consider the deal, which raises a 12 percent hotel tax in the Las Vegas area by up to 1.4 percentage points to fund the stadium and a convention center expansion. Casino industry heavy-hitters from Wynn Resorts, MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment urged lawmakers not to miss the game-changing business venture backed by their competitor, Adelson.Construction workers from the Laborers Union festooned the legislative building in Carson City wiith silver-and-black flags, pleading with lawmakers to give them back jobs that dried up in the recession and also threatening to sabotage the campaigns of Democrats who voted against the deal. Authentic Soccer Poland Jerseys. ventually, the Senate voted 16-5 and the Assembly voted 28-13 for the bill. Opponents included both Republicans and Democrats, many of whom balked that the Legislature put new tax revenue toward a stadium instead of bolstering Nevadas bottom-ranking public education system and mental health services.We are funding luxury items before were taking care of our needs, said Democratic Assemblywoman Teresa Benitez-Thompson, who opposed the deal. I dont let that happen in my home and Im not going to let it happen ... in this house.The public contribution will be larger in raw dollars than for any other NFL stadium, although the publics share of the costs -- 39 percent -- is smaller than for stadiums in cities of a similar size, such as Indianapolis, Cleveland and Cincinnati.Critics pointed out that some outside economists, including Stanford professor and sports economist Roger Noll, have panned the deal as a boondoggle based on outlandish financial expectations. Defenders of the stadium say Las Vegas outsized tourism economy, with 150,000 hotel rooms and 42 million visitors each year, is just so different than other markets that are more dependent on locals.If we take the visitor component out of our economic impact model, it is negative, said economic analyst Jeremy Aguero, who helped develop the deal. He said he didnt disagree with analyses that other cities have been burned in stadium deals, but its inappropriately applied here.Proponents project 451,000 new visitors will come to Las Vegas as a result of the stadium, ushering in $620 million in economic impact. Thats based on the stadium hosting 46 events, including 10 NFL games, 6 UNLV football games and a variety of concerts, sports and other events.The deal puts $420 million toward renovating and expanding a dated convention center, which proponents say will help Las Vegas accommodate the largest conferences and keep its edge against competitors like Orlando. The two projects are projected to bring 25,000 construction jobs and 14,000 permanent jobs to the Las Vegas area.Tourists, mostly, will finance the improvements. They can expect to pay about $1.50 more per night on their hotel bill for an average-priced room on the Las Vegas Strip.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Carmelo Anthony Jersey .Va. -- When the New Orleans Saints conclude practice Wednesday at the $30 million training center built for them at the luxury Greenbrier Resort, the three fields there are expected to be used by disaster-affected youth football teams whose regular fields were contaminated by flooding of historic proportions.Beyond that, the future of the athletic facilities Greenbrier owner Jim Justice built in 2014 remains uncertain.When the Saints depart for Houston on Wednesday night for joint practices with the Texans, an initial three-year agreement for New Orleans to hold the bulk of training camp at the historic mountain retreat in West Virginia will effectively expire.Justice said he and the Saints have discussed an open-ended extension that would allow either side to end the agreement with a minimum of two years notice, but there have been no commitments yet.It would be an enormous disappointment to me and the people of West Virginia if they dont come back, compounded by this terrible disaster weve had, said Justice, a coal mining magnate who is also running for governor of West Virginia. It has been a tremendous economic boost for West Virginia and a tremendous morale and spiritual boost for the people -- especially now.These people dont need another cannon ball right now, Justice added. But if thats what it is, you deal with it.The Saints have gone 7-9 following each of their first two training camps at the resort, which was founded as a health spa on the site of natural springs in the midst of a scenic, rugged, densely forested landscape near the West Virginia-Virginia state line.Many Saints fans now question whether the luxurious surroundings -- marked by Classic Revival architecture similar to the White House -- have made players soft. Others simply question why the club cant find a suitable training site much closer than the nearly 900-mile drive from New Orleans. After all, the Saints lone Super Bowl season followed a training camp held at team headquarters in 2009.Saints coach Sean Payton got to know Justices resort while attending the PGA Tours Greenbrier Classic (which was canceled by flooding this summer). Payton readily shows his affection for the Greenbrier and dismisses the notion that the posh surroundings are responsible for the Saints recent struggles. He has said the relative seclusion makes it easier to work without distraction, and that the facilities, sitting at an elevation of about 2,000 feet, provide summer practice conditions considerably less hot and humid than in south Louisiana.At the same time, its not clear that the Saints believe that continuing to train at the Greenbrier serves their best interest.Well evaluate that. We do that at the end of each year, Saints executive vice president and general manager Mickey Loomis said shortly after the club arrived in West Virginia this summer. Ultimately, it comes down to what gives us the best chance to be successful.What was clear from comments made by Loomis, Payton and several players was that the teams bond with the people of White Sulphur Springs was strengthened by the decision not to move camp from the resort following devastating June floods. The Saints, who a decade ago embraced their role in New Orleans recovery from Katrina, canceled conditioning tests on their first full day in West Virginia and instead helped fix up a public recreational area that included a playground, tennis and basketball courts, and playing fields.Any time youre there to help and really work, it transcends regions and states and theres an element of the human spirit thats consistent, Payton said.Stephen Gustard, who expects to be displaced from his flooded White Sulphur Springs home for months, called the Saints effort to rebuild the park a huge morale booster.Thats a place where kids can go play and get away from the depressing avenue where everyones at right now, said Gustard, the chef at a French bistro known for its goat cheese mousse served with figs on crostini in nearby Lewisburg. Its exciting even just having a professional team that supports our community by coming here.Last weekend, the Saints invited high school football teams from flood-damaged communities near Charleston, the state capital, to attend practice and meet with players and coaches.The Greenbrier is rebuilding from damage to its golf courses and other amenities, but the hotel sits above where floodwaters rose, as do the terraced, hillside facilities the Saints use.If the Saints dont return, Justice said hell see if other NFL teams are interested. But Justice stressed that his initial hope was that the Saints would make the Greenbrier their home-away-from-home for many years. He has tried to make it affordable, charging the club a $150 room rate instead of the usual $400-plus during summer. Justice said his catering staff provides team meals at a discount and sticks to a menu devised by the teams nutritionist.Ive adopted them, said Justice, whose Greenbrier office is adorned with Saints memorabilia.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Phil Jackson Jersey .

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Alaina Coates cant imagine a better post duo in the country than she has with South Carolina teammate Aja Wilson.Shell get no argument from Clemson after the two combined for 39 points, 20 rebounds, seven asissts -- mostly to each other -- and six blocks in the sixth-ranked Gamecocks 83-61 victory Thursday night.The high-low is great, Coates said. I mean, weve got the best high-low duo in the nation. The fact is were doing better getting each other the ball.And the overmatched Tigers (8-2) had little chance of preventing it as South Carolina (8-1) won its seventh straight in the rivalry series.They have a ton of weapons and theyre really tough, Clemson coach Audra Smith said. The inside game is impossible to stop.Wilson finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Coates had 19 points and 10 rebounds for her sixth double-double in nine games this season.Wilson and Coates combined for six points when South Carolina came out of the break with a 17-6 run. The Tigers (8-2) could not respond.South Carolinas rivalry win streak ties the longest in series history, matching the run Clemson had from 1996 through 2001. Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley also improved to 4-0 over her former college teammates at Virginia, Clemsons Smith.Wilson added four assists and two blocks while Coates added three assists, two steals and four of South Carolinas season-high 11 blocked shots. Kaela Davis had 17 points for South Carolina.Nelly Perry had 20 points to lead the Tigers. They lost their second in a row after opening 8-0.Clemson was shorted-handed before things started with its two leading rebounders in forward Kobi Thornton and Aliyah Collier limited by injuries. Thornton was out after hitting her head Monday night in loss to No. 25 Oregon. Collier, who averaged 7.9 rebounds this season, played just three minutes because of continuing knee problems.Smith said she expected Collier back for her next game. Thornton, who had returned from a concussion when she hit her head again, could take a bit longer.THE BIG PICTUREClemsoon: The Tigers started the season 8-0 against non-Power Five opponents. Frank Ntilikina Jersey. The Tigers, though, have lost their past two to No. 25 Oregon (87-59) on Monday night and the rival, sixth-ranked Gamecocks. While Clemson has improved -- its already doubled its four-win season from 2015-16, it is not yet ready to consistently play toe-to-toe with its better opponents. And there are plenty of those coming up once Atlantic Coast Conference play starts next month.South Carolina: The Gamecocks certainly dont look like the team yet thats rolled to the past three Southeastern Conference titles. Their post duo of 6-foot-5 Wilson and 6-4 Coates are strong and engaged. On the perimeter, though, there are questions. Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray have looked like All-Americans sometimes and been non factors at others. Point guard Bianca Cuevas-Moore has also struggled at taking over the on-court leadership role that Khadijah Sessions handled so well the previous few years.ALL CHANGINGTalk about differing ways to win. The Gamecocks used 16 3-pointers (second best in program history) to blow past Minnesota last Sunday. This time, South Carolina made just four of 14 long-range baskets while relying on its inside advantage to defeat Clemson. Weve got a lot of ways to win, Staley said. Weve got to take advantage of them.HEY, ROOMIEStaley and Smith were roommates for a short stretch at Virginia in the late 1980s until Staleys night-owl tendencies did not mesh with Smiths early-to-bed style. Each sought more suitable people to live with. But theyve remained good friends since college and Staley was impressed with Smiths building program. Im happy for her and the program, Staley said. Even though theyre our rivals, we want to see all South Carolina teams do well.UP NEXTClemson returns home to face South Carolina State on Sunday.South Carolina closes a three-game home stand against No. 9 UCLA on Sunday.

Chael Sonnen is coming back to the cage, and hes doing it with Bellator. Seattle Seahawks Jerseys China .Sonnen, a former UFC fighter who announced his retirement from mixed martial arts in 2014, signed a multiyear, multi-fight deal with Bellator, the promotion company announced Thursday night.Sonnen, 39, said he hopes to begin in November by taking on fellow UFC alumnus Tito Ortiz, but he says hell begin the next chapter of his career with no other preferences about opponents, fight locations or even weight classes.I want to fight right now, and I dont fight in any weight division, Sonnen told The Associated Press. I fight at gangster weight. Wherever the competition is, I will show up. [Bellator president Scott] Coker has got guys under contract from 185 to 205. Hes signing guys at heavyweight. If hes got guys that want to fight, then lets fight.Sonnen, who serves as an MMA analyst for ESPN, has fought for the UFC middleweight and light heavyweight titles during a tumultuous MMA career, narrowly losing a memorable matchup with then-middleweight champion Anderson Silva. He also honed world-class fight promotion skills that turned him into a pay-per-view draw.Sonnen hasnt fought since a first-round knockout loss to Rashad Evans on Nov. 16, 2013, and received a two-year suspension in 2014 for failing a drug test.He announced his retirement after that positive test, which wasnt the first of his MMA career. He repeatedly denied interest in returning to the sport, instead starting a family and beginning a career in commentary and podcasting over the past two years.When asked Thursday why hed insisted he wouldnt make a comeback, Sonnen said: Im a heel. Heels lie.There might have been a blink of the eye where I thought it was time to transition behind a desk, but for the most part, I never meant it, Sonnen said. I was never prepared for it. I knew I was coming back, and there were more guys to beat up. ... I appreciate that you all read the book, but I can see that I left a few chapters out, so its going to continue.Sonnen had been a devoted UFC fighter, with two stints and 14 fights for the promotion company since 2005. He reentered the USADA testing pool earlier this year, a required precursor to fighting in the UFC, whose anti-doping policy is administered by the USADA. Sonnen remained vocally supportive of the UFC during his suspension, but Bellator apparently made a financial offer he couldnt resist.When asked why he chose Bellator, Sonnen solemnly joked, Zero apostrophe S, referring to a large financial offer.Chael is an incredible athlete that has competed at the very highest levels of the sport, and I know that he is going to continue to do just that here at Bellator, Coker said.He has that entertainer X factor that cant be taught. When we were talking, Chael was adamant that he wants to compete in three divisions here. He already has unfinished business with Wanderlei Silva, but he also wants to fight Tito Ortiz, Fedor Emelianenko and even Rory MacDonald at middleweight. These are all fights that Id be very inclined to watch, so hopefully we can put some, if not all, of these matchups together.Ortiz, Silva and MacDonald are former UFC stalwarts who moved to Bellator in recent years, along with former UFC champion?Benson Henderson?and other well-known names. Emelianenko, 39, is widely considered the best?heavyweight in MMA history, but he has fought only twice since 2012.Sonnen said he wont ask for a specific opponent beyond Ortiz, but he intends to fight early and often with Bellator.I signed with Bellator a matter of minutes ago -- theyve got a card in Austin tomorrow, and Im that Im not on it, Sonnen said in reference to Bellator 161, which pits Cheick Kongo against Tony Johnson in the headlining heavyweight bout.Bellator 161 and most of the promotions fights largely air on Spike TV, although a Sonnen-Ortiz matchup seems to be a possible pay-per-view candidate. While the fight isnt set, Sonnen said he would love to take on Ortiz, the fighter known as the Huntington Beach Bad Boy?who has been with Bellator since 2014.The Bad Boy versus the Bad Guy in November, and thats a quote, Sonnen said.Sonnen said he believes he can jump back into competition quickly. He has sparred aggressively during his time off, even setting mock fight dates to prepare.But as far as dealing with the competition and the adversity and the pain and the things you have to go through to be successful, I havent done that, Sonnen said. My body still feels good, and Im still having some good moments in the practice room. Everything is fine. Ive had some personal bests. But as far as going in there and actually doing it, youve got to have those reps. Im jonesing. November cant get here quick enough.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

CHICAGO -- Lets just ask this straight away: Can Kyle Hendricks, the Chicago Cubs newfound co-ace and Cy Young candidate, translate his success to the postseason? And lets just answer with another question: Has he offered a shred of evidence that he wont?You can certainly ask these things about every single pitcher in the playoffs, so perhaps we should explain why we bother to ask them about Hendricks. Jose Fernando Cuadrado Jersey . The real topic in play here is whether a pitcher as finesse-based as Hendricks is somehow at a disadvantage when it comes to the heightened reality of postseason play. Heres the factoid that seems to dog him everywhere: His average fastball velocity (87.6 mph) ranked 70th out of 74 qualifying big league starters. He was a full 10 mph slower than big league leader Noah Syndergaard. If the latter is Thor, and were nicknaming pitchers after Norse gods, then Hendricks is Odin, the relentless pursuer of knowledge.Knowledge hes always willing to share. When asked what he has learned from Game 1 starter Jon Lester and the other veterans on the Cubs staff, Hendricks said, Watching the work they do and how they manage a full season start to finish in the big leagues. How to get your body ready when it comes to the end of the year for playoffs. When to push it, when to kind of lay off. Just watching them, really, how they go about their business each and every day and even here in the playoffs is really what I learned from them.Given the ubiquity of radar readings, velocity charts and all manner of pitch trackers, its no wonder that close observers of the grand old game have started to favor guys who light up the scoreboard over the types like Hendricks who, you know, just pitch good. Guys like Cubs Hall of Famer Greg Maddux who, at least toward the end of his career, threw even slower than Hendricks. Thats no arbitrary name-drop, either, as Giants manager Bruce Bochy went there, calling Hendricks Maddux-like during his comments before Game 1.

United of Major League Soccer. United chose the defender in the second round of the 2013 MLS re-entry draft. NEW YORK -- This youth movement has brought a new feeling to the New York Yankees. Its put them in a new position in the pennant race, too.Chad Green struck out 11 in six dominant innings, fellow rookie Aaron Judge delivered again with an RBI double and Dellin Betances escaped a big ninth-inning jam, leading the Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0 on Monday night.Thats a great team win, Green said.Betances got major league RBI leader Edwin Encarnacion to ground into a game-ending, around-the-horn double play with runners at the corners.The Yankees won for the fifth time in six games, taking the first 1-0 decision between the teams since 2005. They dropped Toronto percentage points out of first place in the AL East and, after many thought they were fading from contention, pulled within 5 1/2 games of new division leader Baltimore.The wins have come as the Yankees have shed veterans Alex Rodriguez, Carlos Beltran, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman. Judge and Green have been joined by the likes of newcomers Gary Sanchez and Tyler Austin.Its definitely different, manager Joe Girardi said.Theres a little more energy, he said. That happens when you have young guys.Promoted earlier in the day from Triple-A for his fifth stint of the season with the Yankees, Green (2-2) was in complete control. He gave up two hits, walked none and outpitched R.A. Dickey (8-13).Tyler Clippard, Adam Warren and Betances combined for scoreless relief. Betances held on for his fifth save as the Yankees stopped a five-game losing streak to Toronto.Green retired the first 13 batters, with just one ball hit out of the infield. After Troy Tulowitzki singled and Darrell Ceciliani doubled with one out in the fifth, the 25-year-old rookie fanned his final hitters.Green twice struck out reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson. The right-hander fanned him with his 104th and final pitch, a 96 mph heater, and Donaldson flung his bat toward the Toronto dugout.Hes got a good, live arm, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.He was confident. AAs the game went on, you could see it more and more, he said. Cheap Nigeria Soccer Jerseys. Judge homered in his first two big league games over the weekend, and drove in the only run this time. Hes 5 for 10 since being called up.Its still the same game, Judge said.Girardi wondered before the game how some of the other young Yankees would handle Dickeys knuckleball, and Judge struck out swinging the first time up.A little experiment, Judge said.But after Dickey walked consecutive batters in the fourth, Judge went the opposite way and lined a one-hop double to the wall in right-center field.Judge became the first Yankees player with an extra-base hit and RBI in his first three career games since the RBI became an official stat in 1920, ESPN Stats & Info said.The Yankees had plenty of chances, but went 2 for 18 with runners in scoring position and stranded 14.Dickey left after five innings, striking out six but walking four. He has won one of his last six starts.GREEN DAYGreen became the second Yankees rookie pitcher to strike out at least 11 and walk none without allowing a run. Stan Bahnsen was the first, in 1968.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) could come off the 15-DL Tuesday night.Yankees: OF Brett Gardner (ankle) didnt start for the third straight game. He hopes to be back in the lineup Tuesday night.Umpire: Plate ump Hunter Wendelstedt was hit by a foul tip from Brian McCann of the Yankees leading off the second inning. Wendelstedt stayed in for the rest of the inning, then left for the night. The game continued with three umpires.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (7-5, 2.95) hasnt given up more than three earned runs in any of his previous 13 starts. He has allowed just one home run over his last four outings.Yankees: RHP Michael Pineda (6-10, 5.07) has won three of his last five starts.

BALTIMORE -- Free agent catcher Welington Castillo has finalized a $6 million, one-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles and is set to replace Matt Wieters behind the plate. Authentic Duke Dawson Jersey .This is the best day of my life, Castillo said Friday. This is a team thats going to be in the playoffs, World Series. I want to be part of it.His agreement includes a $7 million player option for 2018.Castillo hit .264 with 14 homers and 68 RBI in 111 games with Arizona last season, when he made $3.7 million. The 29-year-old, who became a free agent when the Diamondbacks failed to offer a 2017 contract, is expected to take over from Wieters, a four-time All-Star who became a free agent.Wieters accepted a $15.8 million qualifying offer last offseason and hit .243 with 17 homers and 66 RBI in 124 games. He was not given a $17.2 million qualifying offer last month.Castillo, whose deal was negotiated by agents Sam and Seth Levinson, represents a lower-priced option. The 29-year-old broke into the big leagues in 2010 with the Chicago Cubs and has also played with Seattle.He has a .255 career batting average with 60 home runs and 230 RBI over 509 games.I love challenges, Castillo said. Its a really good park to hit.Wieters, the fifth overall pick in the 2007 amateur draft, has spent his entire career with Baltimore. The switch-hitter is known for his ability to work with a pitching staff but has also been productive at the plate: He has a .256 batting average with 117 homers and 437 RBI over eight seasons. Wholesale Patriots Jerseys Authentic . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. Authentic JaWhaun Bentley Jersey . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. http://www.cheappatriotsjerseysauthentic...y-etling-jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. The weekends football action featured a couple of eventful debuts. Claudio Bravo almost gifted Manchester United a route back into the Manchester derby on Saturday, a day before the man he replaced between the sticks, Joe Hart, made a losing start to life with Torino.But Bravo and Hart are by no means the first sportsmen to announce themselves to their new fans in less-than-impressive fashion. ESPN rounds up five other debutants who wished they could have made a second first impression.Jonathan WoodgateReal Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao, Sept. 22, 2005England defender Woodgate was forced to sit on the sidelines for more than a year -- 561 days to be precise -- after signing for Real Madrid from Newcastle in 2004. But when he finally made it on the pitch in a white shirt he made sure his bow was worth the wait. For all the wrong reasons. With just 25 minutes gone Woodgate marked his first La Liga appearance with a bullet header, into his own net. And while Madrid recovered, running out comfortable 3-1 winners, the nervous energy coursing through their defenders veins ensured that he would play only 66 minutes. A second booking meant that his night ended prematurely, and the calamitous evening summed up what was a largely forgettable three years in Madrid.Jason CroweArsenal vs. Birmingham, Oct. 14, 1997Millions of children around the world dream of pulling on the jersey of their favourite team. For the lucky few who are picked up by academies and development squads it takes years of hard work, dedication and a little luck to make that wish a reality. Crowes moment arrived on an unremarkable October evening as Arsenal hosted Birmingham in the third round of the League Cup. Having started the match on the bench, the then 19-year-old right-back was summoned to make his debut in extra time. However, it would not last long. Crowe was walking back over to the bench and down the old Highbury tunnel just 33 seconds later, the recipient of a red card following a reckless challenge on Martin OConnor. Crowe would make only two further appearances for the Gunners, but his brief cameo assured his place in Arsenal folklore.Mathew TaitWales vs. England, Feb. 5, 2005England went into the 2005 Six Nations in a state of transition under Andy Robinson. Gone were many of the star names who had delivered the World Cup less than 18 months earlier, while Jonny Wilkinson remained injured. Robinson must have hoped that Mathew Tait would take to Test rugby as his then club-mate Wilkinson had, but on the eve of his 19th birthday the centre was given a torrid time by his opposite number, Gavin Henson. The Welshmans 16th-minute tackle on his young opponent set the tone, not only for the match but the championship as a whole. Henson would fire Wales to an 11-9 victory in Cardiff en route to a Grand Slam. Tait, meanwhile, would not be seen inn Test rugby for more than a year and in truth his international career never fully recovered. Authentic Keion Crossen Jersey. Darren PattinsonEngland vs. South Africa, July 18-21, 2008Pattinson did not follow the established path towards Test cricket. Born in England but raised in Australia, the fast bowler did not win a professional contract until he was 27. However, less than two years later -- and having played only 11 first-class matches -- an injury to Ryan Sidebottom presented him with a chance at the highest level. Plucked from obscurity to face South Africa primarily because of his height and ability to swing the new ball, Pattinson took two wickets in the Proteas first innings. However, the manner of Englands 10-wicket defeat ensured that he would never be seen in Test cricket again.Vanessa-MaeWomens giant slalom, Winter Olympics, Feb. 18, 2014Violinist Vanessa-Mae transformed into Olympic Skier Vanessa Vanakorm in 2014, when she became only the third athlete to compete for Thailand at the Winter Olympics. The British citizen had relocated to Switzerland in 2009 in order to chase her dream, having decided to compete for the country of her fathers birth as it represented an easier route to the Sochi Games. Qualification in the womens giant slalom secured, the musician found life on the Russian slopes tough as she trailed in 67th, more than 50 seconds behind gold medallist Tina Maze. That put her in last place of the skiers who completed the competition but was not the end of her Olympic journey. Question marks were raised about the validity of her qualification results, and Mae was initially handed a four-year ban from skiing. She vowed to fight that decision and CAS has since overturned it, leading the IOC to confirm it will allow her classification to stand.But some debutants impress only for it to all come crashing down...Massimo TaibiLiverpool vs. Manchester United, Sept. 11, 1999Manchester Uniteds treble victory in 1999 ushered in the end of an era as goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel left the club after eight years and 10 major trophies. Sir Alex Ferguson reacted to his departure by signing Mark Bosnich on a free transfer, but doubts over his former trainee led the Scot to dip back into the transfer market for Massimo Taibi. The Italian keeper made an instant impression, recovering from an early flap to pick up the man of the match award as United beat Liverpool 3-2 at Anfield on his debut. That would be as good as it got for Taibi in Manchester though. Just three games later, and following an infamous howler against Southampton at Old Trafford and a 5-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, he was back in Italy. Proof that an impressive debut is no guarantee of a long or successful career.

BOSTON -- With the American League East title already in hand, the Boston Red Sox are focused on celebrating David Ortizs legacy in Sundays regular season finale against Toronto. Abraham Almonte Jersey .But the Blue Jays still have some unfinished business.Toronto (88-73) needs a win to lock up an AL wild card spot, as their 4-3 victory Saturday pulled them into a tie for the top spot with the Baltimore Orioles, who lost 7-3 to the New York Yankees earlier in the day.The Blue Jays can still make the playoffs with a loss Sunday, but that could introduce the need for a play-in game against either the Detroit Tigers or Seattle Mariners.Im not worried about that, Toronto manager John Gibbons said. We want to enjoy this one. Theyve been hard to come by, so well let (others) worry about that.Boston (93-68) trails ALDS opponent Cleveland by a one-half game after the Indians bested the Kansas City Royals 6-3 on Saturday.The Red Sox won the regular-season series with Cleveland 4-2, so the Indians must finish one game ahead of Boston to gain home-field advantage. If both teams win or lose Sunday, Cleveland must win a makeup contest in Detroit on Monday to get the extra home game.Obviously we would like the home-field advantage, Red Sox utility man Brock Holt said. Well come ready to go tomorrow. Hopefully well play that first game here.Ortiz, meanwhile, will play the 2,408th and final regular season game -- and his 1,014th at Fenway -- of his storied 20-year career.The man affectionately known as Big Papi has put together a resume worthy of Hall of Fame consideration, hitting .286 with 541 home runs -- 17th most all-time -- and 1,768 RBI.As they have done all weekend, the Red Sox will honor Ortiz with a pregame ceremony and are asking fans to be in their seats by 2 p.m. ET ahead of a scheduled 3:05 p.m. first pitch.David Price (17-9, 4.04 ERA) has a chance to end an up-and-down inaugural season with the Red Sox as an 18-game winner, but likely wont go deep into the game.Hes (been) under a lot of scrutiny as we know, said Red Sox manager John Farrell, who anticipates limiting Prices pitch count, and yet you look at the body of work that hes put in for us, and hes been a very strong starter for us.Price has been masterful in his career against the Blue Jays, posting a 17-3 record with a 2.44 ERA and 143 strikeouts in 24 career starts.His .850 winning percentage versus Toronto is the highest ever against the team with the minimum of 10 decisions.Despite the lack of team success, Blue Jays sluggers Jose Bautista (.345, 20-for-58, six homers, 14 RBI) and Edwin Encarnacion (.250, 12-for-48, four homers, nine RBI) have given Price fits.Toronto counters with Aaron Sanchez (14-2, 3.06 ERA), who is 1-0 with a 5.19 ERA in three starts against Boston this season and 3-1 with a 3.89 ERA in 13 career appearances (five starts).Jackie Bradley Jr. has hit Sanchez well in a limited sample size, going 3-for-7 with a home run and four RBI. Ortiz is 4-for-9 with a double, an RBI and four walks versus Sanchez. Cheap Indians Jerseys Authentic .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. Cheap Cleveland Indians Jerseys .

PITTSBURGH -- Pitt starting defensive end Dewayne Hendrix and starting linebacker Elijah Zeise are out for the season, coach Pat Narduzzi announced after the Panthers 42-39 win over Penn State on Saturday.

So I would like to thank Marco and the Chennaiyin FC owners for believing in me. Marco especially had a big influence in my decision. I am honoured to have the chance to play and work under Marco. Working closely with him will be a great experience for my future coaching career also.I had a very interesting experience last year in India but this year I am more prepared and more excited and cant wait to get started with Chennaiyin FC and help them retain the ISL trophy, Riise stated.

The summer swing begins in earnest Monday with the simultaneous Rogers Cup tournament in Toronto (ATP) and Montreal (WTA). Gerard Pique Jersey .A Masters 1000 event, Toronto is mandatory for the men. But it will still be without three of the top four players in this unusual Olympic year: No. 2 Andy Murray, No. 3 Roger Federer and No. 4 Rafael Nadal have all withdrawn in order to gain more rest and prepare for the upcoming Games in Rio de Janeiro that begin on Aug. 6.Serena Williams heads a Grand Slam-worthy Montreal entry list. Among the top 10, only No. 6 Victoria Azarenka, who announced she is pregnant and taking the rest of the season off, is missing.?Here are the top five questions as the Rogers Cup approaches:1. Will Serena be adequately motivated after making history at Wimbledon?Montreal had a nice little payback theme worked up for Williams -- until defending Rogers Cup champion Belinda Bencic pulled out. The wrist injury that forced her to quit during her second-round match at Wimbledon still isnt healed. Now 18, Bencic made her career breakthrough in Canada last year, toppling Williams in the semifinals and No. 3 seed Simona Halep in the final.Williams has lost in the Canadian Open two years in a row (sister Venus took her down in 2014, also in the semis). Serena has a point to prove, and she needs to prepare for what most likely will be her last Olympics. Expect ferocity.2. Is Novak Djokovic ready to get back on track?Heading into Wimbledon, a calendar-year Grand Slam seemed a real possibility. The buzz was all about Djokovic and the challenge he posed to Federers record of 17 Grand Slam singles titles. But Djokovic was upset in the third round by Sam Querrey. The Serb left London with question marks after suggesting he wasnt entirely right for the match, refusing to elaborate.In two Olympics, Djokovic has won just one medal in singles: a bronze in Beijing. Hes volubly patriotic, so the upcoming Games are a high value target for him. Djokovic is not in the habit of playing tuneup tournaments, which is what Toronto has become in this Olympic year. It should tell you something.3. Will any of the WTAs lesser lights make a move?Olympic fever is stronger in other parts of the world than the U.S., particularly in smaller or less prosperous nations. So its logical to expect a greater level of urgency and proficiency in the coming days from the likes of Romanias Halep, Slovakias Dominika Cibulkova, Polands Agnieszka Radwanska?and a number of Czech players, including Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova.Montreal should give us a good indication of where they stand.4. Can Milos Raonic build on his outstanding Wimbledon performance?Somebody had to benefit from Torontos loss of Murray, Federer and Nadal in one fell swoop. It seems like poetic justice that the prime beneficiary is a Canadian who grew up just 9 miles from Toronto, No. 7 Raonic. With a wink from the draw gods, Raonic could find himself in the same half as No. 2 seed (and No. 5-ranked) Stan Wawrinka.Raonic lost the 2013 Rogers Cup final (in Montreal) to Nadal. He handles home-crowd pressure well. Hell be treated as a conquering hero, coming off his first Grand Slam final appearance, in Wimbledon. Well see how he handles the increased load of expectations -- including his own.5. Will the long-awaited surge by U.S. players happen now?Now that the tours are back on hard courts in North America, the chatter about American players inevitably grows louder. The U.S. men are coming off a commendable group performance at Wimbledon, marred only by a shocking Davis Cup loss to Croatia last weekend. John Isner, Querrey, Steve Johnson and Jack Sock need to step it up.But its the U.S. women, inspired by Venus and Serena, who have been trembling on the verge of a major breakthrough for some time. No. 11 Madison Keys has a huge game, and Sloane Stephens is far more talented than her No. 23 ranking suggests. Both are legitimate major contenders and former Grand Slam semifinalists. Coco Vandeweghe, while 24, is maturing late and emerging as an impact player on grass and hard courts.This could be a telling summer for them, and it all kicks off Monday in Montreal. Andres Iniesta Jersey . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time. Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. Nacho Fernandez Jersey . First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark". . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. When the NHLs 31st franchise opens its inaugural season in 2017-18, bringing in a new era for hockey in Las Vegas, Bob Strumm will be there. And there wont be a greater authority in the building that night when it comes to Las Vegas hockey.As the general manager of the Las Vegas Thunder of the now-defunct International Hockey League, Strumm oversaw what was, until the NHLs expansion announcement on June 22, hockeys golden age in Sin City. For six seasons during the 1990s, the Thunder blended star power with distinctive Las Vegas flair. And as with the city itself, anything could -- and often did -- happen.We finished first in our first year in the IHL and the third year we finished first overall, said Strumm, who was the Columbus Blue Jackets director of pro scouting for 12 years. We didnt win a championship but we had some great teams and great players and great personalities.The team was the brainchild of the father-son duo of Hank and Ken Stickney, who made their bones owning several successful minor-league baseball teams. Selling Vegas to hockey players was easy, but building the franchise wasnt, especially considering Nevada had just a single ice sheet when the Stickneys were awarded their IHL franchise. Located at the Santa Fe Casino, that ice served as a practice facility, offering players free breakfast and quality slot machine time. After UNLVs Thomas and Mack Center was retrofitted to accommodate hockey, the Thunder were a Vegas favorite.They treated us like we were [players in the] NHL, said goaltender Clint Malarchuck, who played for the Thunder from 1993-1997. I was up on a billboard in lights at the Showboat Casino. On weekends wed get 10,000-12,000 fans.That fan turnout provided a great home-ice advantage. But there was also the added value of playing in a city with countless late-night distractions.As a local team, you hope the visiting team does go out and have some fun, said defenseman Kerry Toporowski, a fourth-round draft pick in 1991 of the San Jose Sharks who played for the Thunder for parts of the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons. I definitely remember guys saying, Hey, take it easy on me tonight. It was a rough one last night.A veteran of 338 NHL games, Malarchuk was among the Thunders first star players before assuming coaching and front-office roles with the franchise. But he wasnt the only name player drawn to Las Vegas. Several established NHLers joined the Thunder as full-time players, including Sergei Zholtok, Randy Burridge,?Pokey Reddick, Jim Kyte, Paul Dipietro and Greg Hawgood. The Thunder even had a Gretzky --?Brent Gretzky, Waynes younger brother who was a third-round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992 and played a season for the Thunder.When NHL stars were embroiled in a bitter holdout, it didnt take long to convince them to join an independent pro team in Vegas. During their respective contract squabbles, for at least a few weeks, Alexei Yashin, Curtis Joseph,?Petr Nedved?and Pavol Demitra all brought star power to the team. Even trailblazing womens goaltender Manon Rheaume played two games for the Thunder.It seemed like there was always a big name, Malarchuk said. A lot of it was the way we were treated. Bob Strumm was the mastermind behind getting big names.Strumms shrewdest move might have been signing top prospects from Eastern Euurope. Cheap Spain Soccer Jerseys. Just a few years after the Berlin Wall fell, Strumm signed Czech star Radek Bonk. Despite being only 17 and unfamiliar with Western culture, Bonk became an instant star before being taken third overall by the Ottawa Senators in the 1994 NHL draft.Vegas is a good spot for scouts to come and watch games, Strumm said. And we had lots of scouts at the games. It certainly brought a lot of attention to our team. And the kid handled it terrifically. He played well.With Bonk setting the precedent, other prospects came to Las Vegas, including Ruslan Salei and Robert Dome, who were each drafted in the first round after developing with the Thunder.For all that star power, the real attraction might have been Vegas itself. When it came to marketing the team, there was no shortage of local color in the arena. We said yes a lot, unless it was illegal, Ken Stickney said. We pushed the edge on just about everything. The focus was just on having a good time. We wanted to win, we wanted to lead the league in scoring and we wanted to lead the league in penalty minutes every year.Accompanied by lasers, smoke and the sound of AC/DCs Thunderstruck, the Thunder entered the ice through a giant slot machine. A marching band often paraded across the ice during breaks in play and groups such as the Village People performed during intermission. A former semi-pro player who had adopted a new Vegas career as a celebrity impressionist occasionally sang the national anthem ... as Neil Diamond.When Malarchuk had his number retired, the team brought a horse onto the ice as a gift for the lifelong ranch hand.Naturally, the team partnered with several local businesses, including a couple of prominent gentlemens clubs, which often resulted in dancers from these establishments attending games. When the women were shown on the Thomas and Mack scoreboard, the capacity crowd would go wild. Except for the time when one dancers attempt to execute a sultry maneuver resulted in her throwing out her back and being taken out of the arena on a stretcher.Probably the only time I went down to ice level, other than to argue with the referees, was to watch the bikini contest, Strumm said. I cant say any more than that.With the Thunder contending with a tricky arena lease and other IHL teams joining the American Hockey League, the party ended in 1999. (The IHL folded two years later.) But not everyone left town.Malarchuk still lives in Northern Nevada while Reddick has spent years developing hockey around Las Vegas. Burridge and Strumm still live there and two former players, Rod Buskas and Jeff Sharples, got pilot licenses and gave tours of the neighboring Grand Canyon before becoming commercial airline pilots. Darcy Loewen and Ken Quinney work as firefighters in the area.There have been times weve ended up on the same calls. Its funny, Loewen said. You just kind of bump elbows and give each other a little wink, a little smirk and carry on about your business.Led by Strumm and some of his former players, there should be a healthy Thunder contingent in attendance when the NHL comes to Vegas in 2017. Theyll no doubt be thinking about how they were the citys original hockey stars.
