Brandon Crawford hit a grand slam and Madison Bumgarner threw a complete game shutout as the San Francisco Giants routed the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-0 in the NL Wild Card game Wednesday night at PNC Park. DeAndre Bembry Jersey . Crawford hit his slam off Pirates starter Edinson Volquez to give San Francisco a four run lead in the fourth and they never looked back. Brandon Belt had three runs batted in as well. Bumgarner pitched all nine innings and allowed just four hits. Volquez allowed five earned runs on five hits over five innings pitched. He also allowed three walks and struck out three. The Giants will now face the Washington Nationals, who led the NL with 96 wins this season, in the NLDS starting Friday in the nationa€?s capital. Mike Muscala Jersey . -- DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and 16 rebounds to help the Sacramento Kings snap a seven-game losing streak by defeating the Chicago Bulls 99-70 on Monday night. John Collins Jersey . At quarterback, all agree that Andy Dalton has been a wonderful surprise, but to truly progress he has to play his best in the playoffs. The two losses in the wildcard rounds keep the evaluation on Dalton open -- just like it did for Peyton Manning many years ago and Matt Ryan until last year.ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha lost his no-hit bid on Ryan Zimmermans infield single with two outs in the ninth inning, and St. Louis beat the Washington Nationals 2-0 Tuesday night to close in on the NL Central title. Making his ninth career start, Wacha came about as close as possible to finishing off the third no-hitter in the majors this season. Instead, the Busch Stadium crowd let out a loud, collective groan as he became the third pitcher to have a bid broken up with one out to go. Zimmerman hit a chopper just over the 6-foot-6 Wacha, and the ball bounced slowly toward shortstop. A charging Pete Kozma grabbed it with his bare hand and whipped a throw to first that was a little wide, pulling Matt Adams off the bag as Zimmerman arrived. "I think it nicked off my glove a little bit," Wacha said. As the ball left Zimmermans bat, several Cardinals started to climb the dugout railing, ready to pour onto the field to celebrate. Second baseman Matt Carpenter did a little hop, all set for the final out. But first base umpire Jeff Kellogg correctly called Zimmerman safe, and the Cardinals sagged right along with their fans. Third baseman David Freese sat crouched in the infield, stunned at how close his 22-year-old teammate had come. Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright put his hands on his head in disbelief. Wacha (4-1) was pulled after Zimmermans hit and walked off to a huge ovation. The right-hander struck out nine and walked two. "I guess I wasnt meant to throw one tonight," he said. Trevor Rosenthal got Jayson Werth to ground out for his second save. With anticipation building and fans on their feet in the ninth inning, Wacha retired pinch-hitter Steve Lombardozzi on a grounder to Kozma before throwing a called third strike past Denard Span. But on the next pitch, Zimmerman spoiled it. Texas Yu Darvish lost a perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning against Houston on April 2 and San Franciscos Yusmeiro Petit had his try at perfection end one out shy against Arizona on Sept 6. Cincinnatis Homer Bailey and the Giants Tim Lincecum threw no-hitters in July. The last two no-hitters by St. Louis pitchers came from roookies -- Bud Smith in 2001 and Jose Jimenez in 1999. Kent Bazemore Jersey. It has been 30 years since there was a no-hitter in St. Louis. Bob Forsch finished off his second for the Cardinals on Sept. 26, 1983, against Montreal. Drafted 19th overall out of Texas A&M last year, Wacha has been up and down from the minors a couple of times this season. But he came up big for the Cardinals in the final week as they try to nail down their first division title since 2009. St. Louis, which already clinched a playoff berth, began the night with a two-game lead in the NL Central over Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. The Reds lost to the New York Mets 4-2, falling three games back with four to play. The Cardinals have won four of five. They remained a half-game behind Atlanta for the best record in the NL. Washington was eliminated from playoff contention with a 4-3 loss to St. Louis on Monday night. The Nationals have dropped three of four. Wacha retired his first 14 batters before Adam LaRoche reached on an error by Carpenter at second base with two outs in the fourth. Span tried to break up the no-hitter with a two-out bunt in the sixth. The ball rolled just foul near third base, and the crowd booed lustily. Left fielder Shane Robinson made a running catch of a tailing liner off the bat of Anthony Rendon to end the eighth. Robinson drove in Carpenter with a two-out single off Gio Gonzalez (11-8) in the third. Carpenter began the rally with his major league-leading 55th double. Yadier Molina pushed the lead to 2-0 with a run-scoring double in the fourth. Gonzalez came within inches of a no-hitter himself this month. He finished with a one-hit shutout against the Mets after pinch-hitter Zach Lutzs seventh-inning single landed right on the first base line behind the bag. This time, Gonzalez allowed two runs and six hits over seven innings. He struck out six. NOTES: Wacha was seeking the 11th no-hitter in Cardinals history. ... Nationals RHP Jordan Zimmermann (19-7, 3.18 ERA) gets his last scheduled shot at 20 wins on Wednesday when he faces RHP Shelby Miller (14-9, 3.12) in the finale of the three-game series. ...

ST. Wholesale Rockies Jerseys . LOUIS -- Yadier Molina thought Carlos Martinez was done early.It turned out a nosebleed that halted Wednesdays day-night doubleheader opener for about 12 minutes in the second inning was just a minor issue. The St. Louis Cardinals right-hander was even better once the bleeding stopped.It actually really helped me stay focused after the fact, Martinez said through an interpreter after working seven dominant innings in a 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres. I was trying to stay in the game, and my mind in the game where it should be.Martinez said he also dealt with the issue last season and awoke with a nosebleed on Wednesday. The pitcher assured manager Mike Matheny he was fine, and trainers staunched the flow with cotton balls and petroleum jelly while Martinez sat on the field near the mound.We were going to sit there and plug it until he pitched, there wasnt another option, Matheny said.Only 11,191 fans were in the seats for the opener, rescheduled from a rainout on Tuesday night. Paid attendance was 40,184.When I came out early I was like `Wow, what happened here? Molina said.Matt Holliday, Jedd Gyorko and Molina homered off Colin Rea (5-4). Gyorko is 10 for 17 against his old team with three homers and seven RBI. He has homered against the Padres four straight games.Ive said the same thing for three or four games, Gyorko said. I dont really have an explanation for it.San Diego opened with Travis Janikowskis double and Ryan Schimpfs two-run homer but had just two more hits off Martinez (9-6). After play resumed, he retired 11 of his next 12 batters.Padres manager Andy Green ventured onto the field during the delay but not to try to hurry anybody.I want the same courtesy afforded to my pitcher if he was going through that out there and give him some time, Green said. Now if it keeps happening repetitively, weve got to do something about it.Aledmys Diaz had two hits and has reached safely in 23 consecutive games, longest by a rookie this season. He is 13 for 19 against San Diego with a homer and four RBI.Seung Hwan Oh earned his third save in four chances.Rea had been 2-0 with a 3.68 ERA in his previous four starts. He allowed four runs in six innings in his first outing in two weeks.I think the biggest thing was maybe nibbling a little bit too much, Rea said. I made a lot of mistakes and they took advantage of them.HOMER HAPPYSan Diego has homered in 17 consecutive games, extending a franchise record. The Cardinals have homered in a season-best 10 straight games, totaling 21 in that time.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: C Christian Bethancourt took a foul off his right knee guard in the seventh but stayed in the game.UP NEXTPadres: Andrew Cashner (4-7, 5.05) works the series finale. He has lost two of his last three starts.Cardinals: Adam Wainwright (9-5, 4.19) is coming off a three-hit shutout against the Marlins and has allowed one run in his last 23 innings.

Trevor Story Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. http://www.wholesalerockiesjerseys.com/charlie-blackmon-jersey/ . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. A little less than two weeks ago, North Face climber Emily Harrington and Eddie Bauer guide Adrian Ballinger, the CEO of Alpenglow Expeditions, set out on a mountaineering version of The Amazing Race. They planned to climb and ski Cho Oyu, the sixth-tallest mountain in the world, located on the border of China and Nepal, and return to their home in Lake Tahoe, California, in two weeks.In doing so, the couple, who met while climbing Mount Everest in 2012, would shorten the expedition time of an 8,000-meter peak by more than one month and transform the idea of how (and how fast) 8,000-meter peaks can be climbed. (It typically takes two months to climb Cho Oyu, and longer for other 8,000-meter mountains.)On Oct. 1, on what Ballinger called the most perfect day on an 8,000-meter peak, the couple reached the 26,906-foot summit of Cho Oyu, 10 days after beginning their journey, and skied down to Camp 1. On Sunday, they awoke knowing they would be back in their own beds by Tuesday, on track to accomplish their incredible two-week, record-setting mission.Today, we wake up in our tent physically shattered yet so appreciative for the journey of the last 36 hours, Harrington posted to Instagram on Sunday. Later that night, espnW caught up with Harrington and Ballinger to learn about the motivation behind their mission, the implications of their success and what its been like to share their experience, and their relationship, with the world.espnW: Congratulations on reaching the summit Saturday. Where are you now?Emily Harrington: At Cho Oyu Advanced Basecamp in Tibet, at 18,500 feet.espnW: What are you setting out to do today? EH: We summited and skied down yesterday morning and made it all the way back here after an exhausting 18-hour day. Today we are packing to leave tomorrow. We will walk 6 miles down to the road and take a jeep to Shigatse, then to Lhasa the next day to fly home. We are packing both to head home and helping the Sherpa pack and prepare for the next Alpenglow trip in a few weeks on Ama Dablam, a 23,000-foot peak in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Much of the gear used here will go there for the next trip.espnW: It typically takes about two months to climb Cho Oyu. What sparked your idea to attempt to do so in two weeks, including travel?EH: Himalayan peaks have been climbed in the same fashion since the first successful ascents that occurred in the 1950s -- meaning multiple weeks or months, many rotations up and down the mountain to acclimatize, or build red blood cells that allow you to continue higher without getting sick, and are essentially these incredibly long expeditions that tax you mentally and physically. But now we have all of this technology that can help shorten that time: better weather forecasting, improved training theory and even ways to pre-acclimatize at home before arriving at the mountain.espnW: How and for how long did you prepare for the expedition? EH: Our strategy involved training at home, pre-acclimatizing in these altitude-simulator tents called hypoxic tents, having all of our logistics and organization in place on the mountain before we arrived, our camps set, permits in place and waiting for a good weather forecast before we left home. That way we stayed healthier by staying home, eating and resting well, and blasting when the time was right.Living for months in a little yellow tent at or above 18,000 feet may sound super adventurous to those who havent done it, but it can get pretty isolating and you develop a sort of cabin fever after a while. Its actually terrible for your health and you return home weak and skinny-fat. Altitude eats all of your muscle and leaves the fat for warmth and protection.Being a rock climber who loves to push myself on more physically challenging terrain most of the year, long Himalayan expeditions have essentially crippled my climbing strength for up to six months. Im hoping the two weeks wont do as much damage and I can return home and keep climbing with some remnant of the strength I had before.espnW: Why Cho Oyu? EH: Cho Oyu is a great mountain in many ways. Its one of the safer 8,000-meter peaks with low objective hazard, meaning no big hanging seracs, no rock fall and generally dry and predictable weather on the Tibetan plateau. Its also a great ski peak in that there are big open slopes that allow for great skiing if conditions allow. Adrian has been on Cho Oyu twice. Once, in 2007, they didnt summit, but in 2013, he climbed and skied it, so he was familiar.espnW: Have you two done anything like this together before? EH: Weve done some bigger trips together, and we are one anothers primary mountain partners. We enjoy doing challenging things together. We have different skills and strengths and can learn a lot from one another. It creates a really fun and engaging partnership, no matter what the goal is.espnW: What is the fastest anyone has climbed Cho Oyu, or any 8,000-meter peak? EH: We think someone has done it inn two weeks and three days, or something like that. Ian Desmond Jersey. Its incredibly fast to climb an 8,000-meter peak in less than a month. And two weeks is crazy fast and creates an entirely different experience than a longer trip with lots of downtime.espnW: Did you set a record? EH: I guess so.espnW: Adrian, you own an expedition company. What does the success of this expedition mean for the future of commercial expeditions? Adrian Ballinger: I think these lightning ascents are exciting, and lots of people are interested in the possibility. Its for a very specific type of climber whos willing to put in the work at home and gain experience on other mountains first before signing up for such a fast-paced climb. I think there are many different experiences for people to have in the mountains, and this rapid style definitely caters to a certain demographic.Our rapid ascent programs that Alpenglow offers already cut traditional expedition times by 30 to 50 percent, while increasing health and success. Lighting ascents take it to a whole new level and require athletes with the proper experience and the willingness to suffer.espnW: What are the risks involved in making big-mountain climbs more accessible, and faster? AB: The key in making these climbs faster while still maintaining a high level of safety is all in the logistics, the guiding and the experience of the climbers on the team. Cutting corners in any of those areas will lead to accidents. Thats where the risk lies. You need the preparation and to be willing to stop and turn around if everything isnt coming together just right like it did for Emily and me this time around.espnW: Climbing is often seen as a sport limited to people with the most time and money. But what about inexperienced climbers who can afford a lightning ascent thinking this is an option for them? AB: Alpenglow Expeditions has standards for joining every one of our trips. We do lots of introductory trips and they are some of our most fun programs. While I hope lightning ascent opens up opportunities for people to go the to worlds highest places, each climber still needs to gain experience on other mountains first. Luckily those mountains can be done in short time frames as well, like Cotopaxi, Ecuadors tallest volcano, in four days and Aconcagua, the tallest peak in South America, in 10 days.espnW: Did you use supplemental oxygen? EH: Yes. We didnt feel it was realistic to try for no Os with no acclimatization rotations and really not being fully acclimatized to 21,000 feet and above. Also, we were very excited about the idea of finding a cool line to ski away from the fixed lines on the descent. Not only is skiing far more physically demanding than simply walking down -- some may find that surprising, but honestly, the hardest Ive ever breathed was while we were skiing down and not climbing up -- but it requires decision-making skills and risk management that we didnt think were appropriate under the exhaustion and fatigue of a no-Os ascent.Both Adrian and I have tried to climb 8,000-meter peaks with no Os (him this past spring on Everest and me last fall on Makalu) and its incredible how impaired your motor skills and reasoning becomes.espnW: Social media has become a big part of expeditions, and in getting expeditions funded. Why did you want to share this experience with the world? EH: Climbing feels selfish at times. Its just us out there pushing ourselves and having a good time. But the fact is that sharing our stories seems to have value to others. We receive hundreds of comments a day telling us how impactful and inspiring our shared experiences are to people. Realizing that what you are passionate about might influence some stranger to create something positive in their lives is a pretty powerful thing and something weve decided is worth the time and effort to pursue.espnW: What has it been like to do this, together, while sharing your experience, and your relationship, with the world? Was there added pressure in sharing your personal experiences?EH: We are both pretty used to the whole social media persona versus private lives balance, and I think we do it fairly well. We both share similar careers and passions so we get it, so to speak. I would say there was some added pressure just because we brought it upon ourselves with the whole timeline and everything, but we knew what we were signing up for.espnW: How did it all go? EH: We totally nailed it. Weather forecast, logistics, health, everything worked out. We couldnt be more stoked.This certainly wont be their last adventure together, so if you want to continue following Emily and Adrians journeys, you can do so on Instagram (@emilyharrington and @adrianballinger) and Snapchat (@emilyaharringto and @adrianjb) and look back at their images from Cho Oyu by searching #chonofilter.

The Supreme Court of India has warned the BCCI that if it does not fall in line and follow the courts directive to implement the Lodha Committees recommendations, it will take measures to enforce them. Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit Shoes Marron/Metallic Silver/Black . The Chief Justice of India TS Thakur told the BCCIs lawyer that the board, which has been accused of stalling by the Lodha Committee, had one week to respond.BCCI thinks it is law unto itself, Thakur was quoted as saying by Indian Express. We know how to get our orders implemented. BCCI thinks it is the lord. You better fall in line or we will make you fall in line. The conduct of the BCCI is in poor taste.Thakur was responding to the status report submitted by the Lodha Committee on Wednesday. In its report, the Committee had asked the Supreme Court to supersede the BCCIs top brass with immediate effect because its officials had not complied with various timelines set by the committee to implement the recommendations passed by the Supreme Court order on July 18.BCCI, it seems, will go to the extent of defying court orders, Thakur said. We had been anticipating such disregard from the board. We dont appreciate such tactics by the BCCI. We have no difficulty in passing orders to make sure our previous orders are implemented.The Lodha Committee had asked the BCCI and its state associations to adopt the new Memorandum of Association and Rules by September 30. It had also sent the BCCI two sets of timelines with various deadlines to implement the recommendations within the six-month time frame set by the court.In the status report RM Lodha, the chairman of the committee, pointed out that the BCCI had not yet complied with seven timelines, and that it was unlikely the board would do so before the September 30 deadline. The BCCI has called for a special general body meeting (SGM) on September 30, when board secretary Ajay Shirke said it would consider the amendments recommended by the Lodha Committee.According to a senior official privy to the meetings between the Lodha Committee and the BCCI, the SGM was the last chance for the board. The SGM is really their complete last chance to ensure compliance. If they havent got all those seven timelines in place and dont adopt the new rules and regulations, they will have no further chance.The BCCI has offered resistance to the Lodha Committees recommendations, having filed a review petition last month against the Supreme Courts order directing it to implement most of the recommendations. In the petition, the BCCI called the court order unreasoned and asked for the recusal of chief justice Thakur from its hearing. However, the petition has been lying in defect because the court raised technical objections to the petition and asked the BCCI to repair them.The Lodha Committee - comprising Lodha and retired Supreme Court judges Ashok Bhan and R Raveendran - was formed in January 2015 to determine appropriate punishments for some of the officials involved in the 2013 IPL corruption scandal, and also to propose changes to streamline the BCCI, reform its functioning, prevent sporting fraud and conflict of interest.

In March 1947, just few months before India gained freedom, two Indian batsmen rode merrily to a world-record, one that stood for sixty years until a pair of Sri Lankan batsmen bettered it recently. Phil Niekro Jersey . A great domestic rivalry, the final of the premier domestic competition, a polo ground, and a matting wicket formed the setting when a short, swashbuckling left-hander, all of five foot five inches tall, and a technically superior master made merry under the Baroda sun. As Gul Mohammad and Vijay Hazare frolicked in the middle, the Maharaja of Baroda, all padded up, had to wait for 538 minutes before he could bat.It was once said that a fish could not slither out of Gul Mohammads hands. Like a tiger on the prowl in the covers, he ranked among the best fielders India has ever produced. But it is with his bat in the hand that he starred on that March day. Mohammad was an attractive batsman, a player you would go to watch because he would be always doing something, Raju Bharatan, the veteran Indian journalist recalls. A lively operator of the new ball, then he would move to covers where he was an outstanding fielder. He always had his chest open, giving an impression of an aggressive mian. He was not a high scorer, his motivation used to run out after a century. So this was one noteworthy partnership. Hazare also should take some credit for this partnership. He was the perfect foil for the attacking Mohammad.Hazare had already shone with the ball before he showcased his batting prowess. Moving the ball off the seam he utilised the matting track effectively, claiming six wickets, to wipe out Holkar for 202. CK Nayudu, one of Holkars favourite sons and Indias first captain, replied in kind, prising out three top-order wickets with his medium-pace, leaving Baroda at a wobbly 91 for 3. Enter Hazare and Mohammad to instigate a Holkar black-out.Three years earlier, under another hot March sun, the duo had racked up a 300-run partnership for Bengal Cyclone XI against Bijapur Famine XI, where theyd thwarted a Test-class attack comprising Lala Amarnath, Amir Elahi, Chandu Sarwate and Ranga Sohoni. A special call from Maharaja of Baroda had attracted Mohammad to shift from Northern India to Baroda and he justified the move with, what some witnesses termed, a display of fantastic hitting. Sarwate, talented young spinner nurtured by Nayudu, was again on the recieving end. Suffering along with him were Hiralal Gaekwad, who ended with 374 first-class wickets at 23.62, Madhavsinh Jagdale (72, 25.77), and the legbreak bowler CS Nayudu (647, 26.54).The duo went on for eight hours and 53 minutes, almost sticking adhesively to the mat in the middle. Mohammed, as his wont, attacked merrily, driving and hooking with flair while Hazare, in his stay of 638 minutes, was customarily assured. Vivek Hazare, Vijays brother and one who played in that game, recalled that nearly 6000 people came to watch the game and cheered Baroda on. He remembered the scenes at the end: The word soon spread that it was a record and many ran into the field.Both fell to the same combination - c Jagdale b Gaekwad - but not before going past Frank Worrell and Clyde Walcotts 574 for Barbados against Trinidad at Port-of-Spain in 1945-46. It took 50 years for anyone to threaten the mark - when Sanath Jayasuriya and Roshan Mahanama came within a run of equaling it in Colombo - and only nine years later was it eventually beaten. With a massive 582-run lead, Barodas bowlers, led by Amir Elahi scythed through the Holkar line-up, and ran away to a memorable title triumph.A few months on, Hazare and Mohammad were to take divergent routes. Hazare went on to have an illustrious international career and captained India in 14 Tests - he even led them to their first Test victory. On the other hand, Mohammad, whod earlier earned his India cap on the trip to England in 1946, didnt set the international arena on fire. In an interview many years later, he was critical of the Nawab of Pataudis captaincy, alleging that no-one apart from Vijay Merchant was given a reasonable run. He played against Pakistan in their first two Tests against India in 1952-53. He later migrated there and represented Pakistan in one Test against Australia - as an interesting aside, Mohammad was the only Pakistani to have played against Don Bradman. He had toured under Lala Amarnath and an Australian critic had described him as a daring batsman who often made ones heart leap into the mouth. Womens Braves Jerseys .

Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says his decision to revoke the credentials of two ESPN writers who cover his team was driven partly by concern that automated game reports could eventually replace human-generated content.Cuban said Monday that he banned Marc Stein and Tim MacMahon from Mavericks home games to bring attention to the issue of companies using automation in sports coverage.The Associated Press, in a partnership with Automated Insights, produces automated stories on minor league baseball but does not use the technology for most of its sports coverage. The AP has at least one reporter at all games in the four major professional sports and most major college football and basketball games.Maybe I will be wrong but I see a direct path from the trends in coverage of games we are seeing over the last couple years to the automation of reporting on games and the curation of related content, Cuban wrote in an email to the AP. This isnt a knock on wire services or their reporters. They are valued and valuable in sports coverage.The billionaire who made his foortune through internet technology told The Dallas Morning News that ESPN had informed the club that it wouldnt have a reporter at every game and would rely on wire services.

As is evident by the AP partnership with Automated Insights, its not if but when.MacMahon has covered the Mavericks primarily for several years but has spent more time in other cities this season. Stein joined ESPN as a national NBA writer in 2000 after previously covering the Mavericks for the Dallas newspaper. Both reporters are based in Dallas.

As Villanova will happily attest, experience matters, even in a one-and-done world. Authentic Brandon Belt Jersey . Which teams have that kind of veteran depth this season?To measure experience, I like to use what I call returning possession-minutes. In effect, this is simply the percentage of minutes that a player recorded last season, multiplied by the percentage of the teams possessions that he used (as listed at kenpom.com).If everyones back from last year, your percentage of returning possession-minutes (or %RPMs) will of course be 100. Conversely the major-conference average for %RPMs this season is 55.Clear enough? Now, here are your least-experienced major-conference teams for 2016-17. These are the rosters with the smallest percentages of returning possession-minutes from last season: Authentic Willie Mays Jersey .

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Maillot Diable Rouge Dries Mertens . -- Notre Dame has played well when games against good opponents appear out of reach.The Fighting Irish (1-2) trailed Texas by 17 before taking the lead and then losing in overtime in the opener. They were down 29 to No. 8 Michigan State before scoring three straight touchdowns and losing 36-28 on Saturday.Coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday the Irish need to get going sooner, starting against Duke (1-2) on Saturday.We shouldnt be waiting for the ebbs and flows of games to carry us. We should be the ones initiating the flows of the game. That is the makeup of this team right now that needs to change, Kelly said.Kelly spoke a dozen times Tuesday about the need to play with urgency. He pointed particularly to the play of quarterback DeShone Kizer, saying there were seven plays in a row in the third quarter where the Irish either lost yards or were held for no gain -- including an interception Kizer threw.That is just unacceptable offensively. Its not just him, but hes running the offense, he said. There are plays that are out there to be made that were not making.Kelly also was peppered with more questions about the Irish defense, which ranks 102nd in the nation and is giving up 439.3 yards a game. After the game on Saturday, he shot down a question about whether with the Irish were going to have to count on Kizer to carry the load because of the defensive struggles.There is not a referendum on whos got to carry who, he said.But asked Tuesday how hes handled defensive issues in the past, Kelly replied: Scored more points.The Irish are averaging 38 points a game, which would be a school record, so that might not be the answer. Kelly believes one of the problems defensively is the Irish are trying too hard and are missing tackles because they playing out of control.If were just in a better position, a better football position, if we just put ourselves in front of the ball carrier and get run over and hold on for dear life, theyre only going to get another yard or two, he said.The two early season losses dropped Notre Dame from preseason No. 10 to unranked and likely eliminated from a shot at the playoff -- and a national championship. So whats left for this team to play for with no conference race to contend for? Linebacker James Onwualu said after the game it comes down to players pride.For me, its just, do they take any pride in their own name? he said. We are the University of Notre Dame and even though we have two losses already, another loss is unacceptable, just like any other loss.Kelly said theres still enough time to turn the season around, saying the Irish wouldnt be thinking about the playoff even if they were undefeated.Were so focused on getting a win, the goal is off to the side, he said. Maillot Eden Hazard Belgique 2018 . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0).

It seems like Joshua Dobbs has been at Tennessee forever. Cheap Rockies Jerseys . Dobbs will tell you that, for him, the past four years have passed in the blink of an eye.On Saturday Dobbs will run through the T formed by the Pride of the Southland Band for the final time when the Volunteers take on Missouri.It feels like Ive been here a while, said Dobbs, who will be starting his 33rd game at quarterback for Tennessee. But it also feels like it has flown by in some instances.But the urgency of the task at hand doesnt allow much time for reflection for Dobbs and his fellow 12 seniors. No. 19 Tennessee (7-3, 3-3 SEC) still has a chance to get to the SEC championship game. If the Volunteers can win their final two games with Missouri and Vanderbilt - and if Florida loses to LSU on Saturday - then Tennessee would go to Atlanta for the first time since 2007.And the Volunteers are going to need Dobbs to carry them. A week ago Kentucky ran for 443 yards against Tennessee, but Dobbs would not let his team lose. He threw for 223 yards and ran for 147 more, including a 45-yard touchdown run, as Tennessee won 49-36.Dobbs needs 329 total yards to become No. 3 on the Tennessee career yardage list behind Peyton Manning and Casey Clausen. He already holds the career rushing touchdown record for a quarterback with 26.And he has done it all as one of the best students in college football, majoring in Aerospace Engineering.Hes special, said Tennessee coach Butch Jones. He is everything you want a student-athlete to be.Here are some other key storylines for Saturday: No. 23 Florida (7-2, 5-2) can win the SEC East for the second straight year if the Gators can find a way to beat No. 16 LSU (6-3, 4-2) in Baton Rouge. Youll remember that this game was originally scheduled for Oct. 8 in Gainesville but was rescheduled and relocated due to Hurricane Matthew. LSU, under interim head coach Ed Orgeron, still has a chance at the Sugar Bowl if it can win its final two games with Florida and Texas A&M. Its been a tough season for Mississippi State (4-6, 2-4) but the Bulldogs still have a shot at their seventh straight bowl trip if they can beat Arkansas (6-4, 2-4). The Bulldogs, who have beaten Arkansas in each of the past four seasons, struggled last week against Alabama (51-3) as quarterback Nick Fitzgerald was held to only 15 yards rushing.Look for Fitzgerald to fare better against an Arkansas defense (12th in the SEC in rushing) that has struggled against good running teams like Auburn and LSU. There was not a better storybook ending last Saturday than that of Shea Patterson, the freshman quarterback from Ole Miss.After the Rebels lost senior quarterback Chad Kelly to an injury, coach Hugh Freeze had a tough decision to make: To just play out the season with Kellys backup, Jason Pellerin, or to take the redshirt off Shea Patterson, one of the nations top high school quarterbacks and the star of the 2016 recruiting class. After consulting with the family, Patterson played and led the Rebels to a stunning 29-28 victory at Texas A&M.Now Patterson gets his second career start when the Rebels (5-5, 2-4) travel to Vanderbilt (4-6, 1-5). A win would put Ole Miss into a bowl for the fifth straight year.Here are a few more quick storylines:Georgia (6-4, 4-4) is done in conference play. The Bulldogs host Louisiana-Lafayette (4-5) on Saturday and close out the season with Georgia Tech. Eight wins in Kirby Smarts first season, with a chance for a ninth in a bowl, would not be bad.South Carolina (5-5, 3-5) can clinch a bowl bid in Will Muschamps first season as coach with a win over Western Carolina (2-8).No. 25 Texas A&M (7-3, 4-3) plays Texas-San Antonio (5-5) and needs to have an uncomplicated day as the Aggies face LSU on Thanksgiving Day in College Station.After starting 0-2 Kentucky (5-5, 4-4) looked like a long shot for a bowl. But the Wildcats will clinch a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2010 by beating Austin Peay (0-10) at Commonwealth Stadium.No. 19 Auburn (7-3, 5-2) got its heart broken last week with a 13-7 loss at Georgia. That kept the Tigers from playing for the SEC West championship on Nov. 26 against Alabama. But the Tigers need to take care of business against Alabama A&M (4-6) and start getting ready to play for pride against the No. 1 team in the nation. Running back Kamryn Pettway will not play for Auburn for the second straight week and quarterback Sean White is out with a shoulder injury. Jeremy Johnson will start at quarterback, with John Franklin III also getting playing time, according to Auburn coach Gus Malzahn.No. 1 Alabama (10-0, 7-0) has the SEC West and a trip to Atlanta already locked up. So look for the Crimson Tide to get their starters out early against Chattanooga (8-2) in order to get ready for next weeks Iron Bowl with Auburn. A historical note: This will be Coach Nick Sabans 46th game with his team ranked No. 1. That breaks the record he shared with Woody Hayes and Bobby Bowden. Saban should get his 41st win as the No. 1 team, which also breaks the record he shared with Hayes and Bowden. Jon Gray Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. Wade Davis Jersey . Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked. http://www.cheaprockiesjerseyschina.com/gerardo-parra-jersey/ . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jimmy Garoppolo did just what Tom Brady always seems to do. Lead the New England Patriots to a late score and victory.But the Patriots needed a little help.Arizonas Chandler Catanzaro missed a 47-yard field goal with 41 seconds to play and the severely depleted Patriots escaped with a 23-21 victory Sunday night in the season opener.We should have won the game, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. As poorly as we played, we should have still won.The snap from rookie long snapper Kameron Canady was low and holder Drew Butler didnt get the ball in terrific position. But Catanzaro was making no excuses.Just an old-fashioned miss, Catanzaro said. Ill make the next one.Arians said: It was a low snap. Drew got it down and he (Catanzaro) pulled it.The miss came after Garoppolo, in his first NFL start, directed the Patriots from their own 19 to the Arizona 15 to set up Stephen Gostkowskis 23-yard field goal for what proved to be the winner with 3:44 to play.Garoppolo completed 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards with no interceptions. He never seemed rattled.When you have confidence in your teammates and they have confidence in you, its easy to stay poised, he said.Coach Bill Bilichick wasnt ready to crown Garoppolo the next Brady, though.He made some good plays. It is not perfect but he made a lot of good plays, Bilichick said.Arizonas Carson Palmer threw for 271 yards and two touchdowns, both to Larry Fitzgerald.We came out too slow, Palmer said, and obviously there when you have to win it with a late field goal, youre obviously behind the 8-ball.Not only were the Patriots without Brady, suspended for his role in deflategate, but they also didnt have tight end Rob Gronkowski, defensive end Rob Ninkovich and two starters on the offensive line.Again, Garoppolo talked about that Patriot confidence.Whoever is out there we have confidence in one another, he said. That is a good thing we have going for us.A remarkable 45-yard run by David Johnson set up a 2-yard, sliding, over-the-shoulder touchdown catch by Fitzgerald that gave the Cardinals their only lead of the night, 21-20, with 9:46 remaining.Ex-Patriot Chandler Jones sacked Garoppolo on the first play of New Englands next possession, but the young quarterback still set up the winning kick by Gostkowski, who also booted a 53-yarder.I am really proud of our team tonight, Belichick said.. Ian Desmond Jersey. I thought we got great effort from all three phases. We played a good complimentary game.A holding penalty hampered the final Arizona drive but a pass to Jaron Brown put the Cardinals within field-goal range. The snap was low and Catanzaro booted the ball to the left of the uprights.New England, a five-point underdog, took the lead on its first possession and scored again to start the second half.Up 10-7 at the break, the Patriots took the second-half kickoff and went 70 yards in nine plays. Rookie cornerback Brandon Williams was beaten badly for the second time on Garoppolos 28-yard pass to the Arizona 8. LaGarrette Blount bulled it in from there and the Patriots led 17-7 with 10 minutes left in the first quarter.The first two Arizona touchdowns followed New England turnovers.REMARKABLE RUNJohnsons remarkable run featured about every tool in the running back kit.He jump cut into the line, spun away from a would-be tackler, put his hand on the ground to steady his balance and stiff-armed another defender before racing down the sidelines. That set up a pretty over-the-shoulder catch by Fitzgerald, the 100th TD reception of his career.I thought I was going to take it to the house, Johnson said. I didnt see the guy behind me. Hopefully it was a defensive lineman and not a linebacker.FAST STARTGaroppolo got off to a fast start, overthrowing the receiver on his first pass then completing four straight for 75 yards. He took advantage of blown coverage by Williams to throw to a wide open Chris Hogan for 37 yards and a touchdown .On their second possession, the Patriots drove from their 8 to the Arizona 29 and Gostkowskis 47-yard field goal made it 10-0.TURNOVER NO. 1The only turnover of the first half led to Arizonas lone first-half score.Garoppolo took a hit from Markus Golden and fumbled. Jones, acquired in an offseason trade with New England, recovered for Arizona at the New England 40.NO DANCINGA celebration dance by Jones and D.J. Swearinger drew a 15-yard penalty after the turnover, but the Cardinals still drove for a score.Palmer threw 2 yards to Fitzgerald to cut the lead to 10-7 with 6:20 left in the first half.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 ' ' '

TORONTO -- Some old feelings of stress and satisfaction came flooding back to Tampa Bay pitcher Alex Cobb as he walked off the mound Wednesday. Air Max 97 Oro Italia .Cobb pitched 6 2/3 innings to win for the first time in almost two years, Kevin Kiermaier and Corey Dickerson hit two-run homers and the Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-1.Cobb (1-0) allowed one run and two hits to win for the first time since Sept. 23, 2014, against Boston. The oft-injured right-hander, who recently returned from elbow surgery, had gone 722 days between victories.I love winning, Cobb said. Its why starters go out there. You want to win the ball game, you want to work deep.Torontos Devon Travis doubled to lead off the first and scored on Edwin Encarnacions sacrifice fly, but the Blue Jays didnt get another hit until Dioner Navarros one-out single in the seventh.Ryan Garton came on after a two-out walk to Kevin Pillar and got Ryan Goins to pop out.First of all, I forgot how stressful it is leaving the game with runners on, Cobb said. Garton came up big for me and got that pop up. Before it was even caught I started having those feelings of satisfaction. You want to see the fruit of your labor.Third baseman Evan Longoria called Cobb the emotional leader of Tampa Bays staff.Its good to have him back, Longoria said. Im happy for him. I know how hard he worked to get back to this point.Dickerson echoed Longorias remark.Ive watched (Cobb) work from spring training through the season, seen the competitor that he is, Dickerson said. Hes an ace and he goes out there and pitches like it.Dickerson had three hits and four RBI as the Rays won for the sixth time in eight games at Rogers Centre.Last-place Tampa Bay now has a franchise-record 200 homers, eclipsing the previous mark of 199 in 2009.Reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson sat out his third straight game for Toronto and underwent an MRI on his sore right hip.

The Red Sox lead the AL East by one game over the Orioles and two over the Blue Jays.Ive got to believe were at rock bottom, manager John Gibbons said. I dont see how much lower it could go.Marco Estrada (8-9) allowed four runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings. Hes 1-5 with an 6.95 ERA in his past seven starts.Im not going to change anything, Estrada said. I felt like I threw the ball really well.The right-hander struck out the Rays first five batters of the game, becoming the first Blue Jays pitcher to achieve the feat. Estrada was perfect through three before giving up three runs and three hits in the fourth.Logan Forysthe singled and Keiermaier followed with a first-pitch home run. Estrada left after Nick Franklins one-out single in the sixth. Matt Dermody came on and gave up Dickersons homer.GOOD TIMES ON GETAWAY DAYThe Rays have won three straight and six of seven on days when they are travelling.FRONT OFFICE ADDITiONLate in the game, Toronto announced the hiring of former Boston general manager Ben Cherington as Vice President of Baseball Operations.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: GM Ross Atkins said Donaldsons hip was not responding to treatment.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- LeBron James says he has lost all respect for Phil Jackson after the New York Knicks president characterized James business associates as a posse in a recent interview with ESPN. Authentic Jason Castro Jersey .Zero, James said Tuesday, when asked if he had any previous ties to Jackson. No relationship at all. I had nothing but respect for him as a coach for what he was able to do. Obviously he was at the helm of [the team featuring] my favorite player of all time [Michael Jordan], and also being there growing up and watching him with the Lakers, but I got nothing for him.Jackson, in an interview with ESPNs Jackie MacMullan published this week, made the statement while revisiting James departure from the Miami Heat to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2014 and what it meant for the tenure of Heat president Pat Riley.It had to hurt when they lost LeBron, Jackson said. That was definitely a slap in the face. But there were a lot of little things that came out of that. When LeBron was playing with the Heat, they went to Cleveland, and he wanted to spend the night. They dont do overnights. Teams just dont. So now [coach Erik] Spoelstra has to text Riley and say, What do I do in this situation? And Pat, who has iron-fist rules, answers, You are on the plane. You are with this team. You cant hold up the whole team because you and your mom and your posse want to spend an extra night in Cleveland.I always thought Pat had this really nice vibe with his guys. But something happened there where it broke down. I do know LeBron likes special treatment. He needs things his way.James business associate Maverick Carter took issue with Jacksons statement, telling ESPN on Monday that he felt compelled to respond, citing the recent debate around coded language.Its the word posse and the characterization I take offense to, Carter said. If he would have said LeBron and his agent, LeBron and his business partners or LeBron and his friends, thats one thing. Yet because youre young and black, he can use that word. Were grown men.James elaborated on the subject Tuesday morning.Ive been in the league for 14 years and from the beginning two years in, I felt like I wanted to put my guys in positions of power, give those guys an opportunity to better themselves, James said. You know, in the beginning we were highly criticized and I was highly criticized about what I wanted to do to help some guys around me become very successful in business.It just sucks that now at this point having one of the biggest businesses you can have both on and off the floor, having a certified agent in Rich Paul, having a certified business partner in Maverick Carter thats done so many great business [deals], that the title for young African-Americans is the word posse.Carter oversees the entertainment aspects of James off-court interests; Paul represents James as his agent and runs the Klutch Sports Group, which counts many other NBA players as clients; and Randy Mims is the executive administrator of player programs and logistics for the Cavs.We see the success that we have, but then there is always someone that lets you know still how far we still have to go as African-Americans, James said.But it wont stop us from doing what we need to do as a group, he added. Were not going to let Phil Jacksons comments stop us from doing what we need to do. It just gives us extra motivation. But its still sad.James said he didnt think Jackson would use the term posse to describe a powerful sports figure who isnt African-American.If you go and read the definition of what the word posse is, its not what Ive built over my career, James said. Its not what I stand for, its not what my family stands for. I believe the only reason he used that word is because he sees young African-Americans trying to make a difference.Jackson hasnt responded directly to James or Carters comments, but on Tuesday he did retweet a post from?Knicks Vice President of Player Personnel Clarence Gaines Jr. about the Posse Foundation, a college access and youth leadership development program.In the same interview with MacMullan, Jackson said he regularly meets with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony to strengthen their relationship as executive and player.Anthony, one of James closest friends in the league, also addressed the issue Tuesday.I know [James] and I dont think he would just say something to be saying it, Anthony said. Whatever was said, Im pretty sure it hit home and he responded to it. I dont know exactly what was said.Anthony said he doesnt think Jackson meant to use the word posse in a racial connotation, but he also didnt want to speak on Jacksons behalf.James and the Cavs play the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 7, in what now figures to be an even more highly anticipated matchup.Its not surprising, James said. If [Jackson] says it out to the media, you can only imagine what he says when the camera is not on him or the headset or whatever you guys record on. Just got a lot more work to do.James was asked if there was any correlation between Donald Trump winning the presidential election and Jacksons sentiments.I dont know, James said. It could be a reach. But at the same time ... it could not be a reach. You dont know what the direct correlation is, but I know how hard I work, I know how much I sacrifice, I know I show up to work every single day and I know I put my team and every franchise Ive been on -- from the Heat to here -- before me because Ive only cared about one thing. And thats winning.Ive tried to put my guys in position to where they can walk in a meeting and go places and they dont need me because they got to a point where theyve done their homework, theyve studied on what they want to do and they can hold a meeting without me because of the respect that they have and the knowledge they have. Thats just 12 years of hard work and dedication that we put to each other. I know Phils in a position of power in our sport, but to criticize me and my guys over that is nonsense.James has played in six consecutive NBA Finals and has three championship rings. Jackson won 11 championships as a coach and two as a player. On Tuesday, James sounded hurt to be scrutinized instead of being embraced by another luminary in league history.If anybody needed advice about the game or wanted to talk about the game, Ive been nothing but open, James said. But it seems like when my name is involved with other people thats helped build the game, its like, How can we criticize what he does on and off the floor? instead of trying to help me.James coach in Cleveland, Tyronn Lue, has played under Jackson, but said hes not going to broker any sort of meeting between the two.Its not something I talked about so if they want to meet they can meet or whatever. Im not in that, said Lue, who added that hes focused only on making the Cavs a better team.James was visibly perturbed with the subject matter for the 10-minute media session. He later told a reporter he would have had much more to say on the subject, but he wanted to stay in a positive state of mind.He added that he wanted to be able to still get his nap in before the Cavs game against the Toronto Raptors later that night with first place in the Eastern Conference on the line.My whole goal is while I have this platform and this muscle that I have right now is how can I better the youth that looks at me every single day and sees what I do and sees what I say and sees the way I walk and talk and what I wear and use it as a positive way to get out of the situation theyre in, James said. Im not going to be that guy that ever downplays somebody or tries to knock someone off just [to] feel better about myself.ESPNs Ian Begley contributed to this report.
