The Dodgers to sed the first combined no-hitter of the season Friday in a 4-0 win over the Padres.Walker Buehler started the game as he combined with Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatoreto to s the Russell Wilson Jersey second overall no-hitter of the season.For the first time in #Dodgers history and 12th time in #MLB History, a combine no-hitter! #MexicoSeries pic.twitter.com/xvPsW3wIDD SportsNet LA (@SportsNetLA) May 5, 2018When Buehler entered the MLB draft out of Vanderbilt, he was consideredone of the best starting pitchers available.But after some arm problems,doubts about his diminuitive size (6-1, 175 pounds), and getting overshadowed by his teammate Carson Fulmer, Buehler fell in the draft and became somewhat of an Nolan Ryan 1989 Practice Royal Jersey afterthought among top prospects.He's far from an afterthought now. Buehler threw six hitle s innings while Men's Texas Rangers Custom Royal Jersey striking out eight. His pitch count had reached 93, and for a pitcher with a Tommy John surgery in his past, manager Dave Roberts made the prudent decision and pulled him from the game. He wasn't thrilled, but he was confident the bullpen could back him up."It's one of those Prince Fielder Jersey where you're pretty angry to come out," Buehler told Sportsnet LA after the game. "But with the bullpen guys that we have, I trusted in their hands too and it worked out."To be part of a no-hitter is an amazing accomplishment in itself. There have been just 298no Jackie Robinson Jersey -hitters in MLB history in more than 130 years. Of those 298, just 12 have been executed by more than one pitcher.Of the Dodgers 23 no-hitters in the team's storied history, just one (Friday's) has been combined.Buehler is now 1-0 on the season with a 1.13 ERA in 16 innings pitched. He has struck out 19.

Its getting serious now: The Braves and Twins are chasing history.Just not the good kind.MORE: 10 worst MLB teams of the past 30 yearsBoth teams enter play Friday at 0-9, almost halfway to the all-time record for the worst start to a season 0-21 held by the 1988 Orioles. That record aside, starting out 0-9 is a certain recipe for a bad year andprobably means 100-plus lo ses by October ...right?Not always. More on that later.Fortunately for both teams, that dubious Orioles mark is still a ways off. But neither the Braves nor the Twins have done anything to quell the growing talk of whether they have a legitimate chance to match thatexercise in futility.But exactly how bad were the 1988 Orioles through nine games Adam Jones Flex Base Black Jersey ? And how do the 2016 Braves and Twins actually compare?Heres a breakdown. Draw your own conclusions.1988 Orioles, though nine gamesRun differential:minus-48Highest batting average: Joe Orsulak (.357)Lowest batting average: Cal Ripken Jr. (.063)Highest OPS: Joe Orsulak (.812)Lowest OPS: Cal Ripken Jr. (.225)Most runs allowed in a game: 12Fewest runs allowed: 3Most runs scored: 3Fewest runs scored: 0Leads held: 2Just for fun: The Orioles were awful despite two first-ballot Hall of Famers in the lineup (Ripken, Eddie Murray).MORE: 21 things that have happened since the Braves and Twins last won2016 BravesRun differential:minus-33Highest batting average: Nick Markakis (.303)Lowest batting average: Freddie Freeman (.080)Highest OPS: Nick Markakis (.910)Lowest OPS: Erick Aybar (.

He was a member of the 1987 Brewers, who started that season 13-0 to tie the all-time record. The team they tied? The 1982 Braves.ParallelsCoincidentally, the 1988 season also featured two teams chasing bad history. The Braves were involved then, too.Atlanta started that season 0-10, something the current vintage would do with a lo s against the Marlins on Friday.MORE: Each MLB franchise's worst team of the past 30 yearsBefore 1988, the all-time record for most lo ses to start a season was 13, so it looked for a while like theBraves and Orioles were racing to see who could get there first. Fortunately for the Braves, their skid ended with the seasons 11th game. For the Orioles, though, the misery was only beginning.Nearly three decades later, two teams again try to avoidthe cold tug of infamy.As the 1988 Anthony Santander Jersey Orioles can attest, once Old Man Infamy grabs hold, it can behard to pull free.A new (old)hopeBut there's still hope for Atlanta and Minnesota, even after dropping nine straight to open the season.Why?We give you the 1983 Astros.The '83 Houston squad also dropped its first nine games that season but then went 85-68 the rest of the way to finish third in the NL West with a run differential of minus-3.MORE: Does Orioles' fast start guarantee succe s?Those Astros were a streaky bunch. The 0-9 start certainly put them in a deep hole, but they countered that with multiple long stretches of hot play later in the season. They also had their share of mini-streaks (good and bad), but in the end the winning streaks outnumbered the losing streaks.It also helped that they had five playerspost a Wins Above Replacement total of 3.1or higher, highlighted by Dickie Thon's 7.4 WAR and Jose Cruz's 6.2.Of course, this doesn't mean that either the Braves Manny Machado Jersey or the Twins will turn things around and end up above .500 by season's end. It's just a sliver of hope, another example of how former Astros pitcher Joaquin Andujar was right when he said baseball couldbe summed up in one word: Youneverknow.

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Three players made the All-Star team. NBA T-shirts From China . A seldom-used player drove in three runs. All in all, a pretty good day for the Reds. Cesar Izturis drove in three runs, matching his season total, and Mat Latos doubled home two more on Saturday, rallying Cincinnati to a 13-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners. It was Cincinnatis second victory over Seattle in interleague play. The Mariners are 9-2 overall in the series. "It was one of those days," Izturis said. The day will be remembered more for what happened just before the game began. The Reds learned that first baseman Joey Votto had been voted by fans as an All-Star starter for the second straight year, the first time thats happened to a Cincinnati player since Barry Larkin in 1999-2000. Joining him in the starting infield is Brandon Phillips, the first time a Reds second baseman has been voted to start since Joe Morgan in the 1970s. They became only the fifth set of teammates to start an All-Star game at first and second base. "Its a real honour," Votto said. "This year it will be special because Im playing beside Brandon. "Everything is finite. There will be an end to my career. I want to enjoy as many of these experiences as I can." Phillips played in the All-Star games in 2010 and 2011 as a reserve. "I want to thank the fans for voting for me," Phillips said. "Its a dream come true. Its something that I can check off my goals." Closer Aroldis Chapman also was chosen for the second straight year. The Reds overcame another early deficit to get their second win over Seattle. Manager Dusty Baker decided to give Izturis his ninth start at shortstop so he could get some at-bats and stay sharp. Izturis singled home a run in the second and doubled home two more in the fifth off Jeremy Bonderman (1-3). Baker had told Izturis on Friday that hed be in the starting lineup for the second game of the series. "Dustys always good about letting you know," Izturis said. "And thats good, especially when you dont play every day. Its definitely all mental. Its not that easy, but we know what were here for." The Reds scored more runs than in any game since a 13-7 win over Milwaukee on May 11. It was the second-most runs allowed by the Mariners, trailing a 16-9 loss to Houston on April 9. Latos (8-2) matched his season high with four walks in six innings, but also doubled his RBI total by driving in a pair of runs with a double. He allowed six hits and fanned 11 while throwing 111 pitches. Kyle Seager drove in three runs off Latos with a homer and a sacrifice fly. Bonderman was coming off his shortest start since 2007, going only 3 1-3 innings during a 7-6 loss to the White Sox on June 30. He lasted longer, but didnt fare much better. The right-hander went five innings, allowing seven hits, five walks and six runs. Five of them scored with two outs. For the second day in a row, the Mariners got a two-run homer in the first inning to jump-start the offence. Nick Franklin had a two-run shot off Mike Leake during a 4-2 win on Friday night. Endy Chavez singled and Seager followed with his 13th homer. Seattle has 21 homers in the first inning this season, most in the majors. Latos helped the Reds pull ahead to stay with two outs in the fourth. He doubled home two runs and scored from second on Shin-Soo Choos single for a 4-3 lead, sprinting around third to beat the throw from centre fielder Dustin Ackley. "That was a good time to get a hit," Latos said. "The offence picked me up. Thirteen runs is always good, especially when I put us in 2-0 hole." Izturis doubled home two more in the fifth, and Jay Bruce added a two-run double during a three-run sixth that put it away.

MILWAUKEE -- For a team that thinks it can and will play a whole lot better, the St. Louis Cardinals are in decent position.Mike Leake struck out a season-high 10 over seven innings, Matt Adams and Randal Grichuk homered, and the Cardinals cooled off Milwaukee rookie Junior Guerra in a 5-1 victory over the Brewers on Sunday.Aledmys Diaz scored from first on a single in the fifth to snap a tie and the Cardinals entered the All-Star break having cut a 12-game deficit to the Cubs to seven in the NL Central.Thats pretty impressive, manager Mike Matheny said, because we havent played well.Adams snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a solo homer estimated at 455 feet to lead off the second. That ended a 16 1/3-inning scoreless streak for Guerra (6-2). The right-hander allowed another solo shot to Grichuk in the sixth and snapped a three-start winning streak.Grichuk and Adams added RBI hits in the ninth.Even though the (hitless skid) I felt that I was squaring up some balls and just hitting them hard right at them, Adams said. But I was swinging at balls I dont normally swing at. The last couple days I felt I was able to manage the strike zone a little bit better.Jonathan Lucroy had two hits, including an RBI single in the first for the Brewers, who are 0-13-1 in their last 14 series with St. Louis.Strikeouts have been a problem Milwaukee season, and Leake (6-7) was an unlikely candidate to keep that going.Leake entered with a rate of 5.7 strikeouts-per-nine-inning, ranking 91st out of 99 qualifying pitchers in the majors. However, he used his slider to keep Milwaukee off balance.I had that to go to because it was working and they were swinging over it, Leake said. So why not use it a little bit more?Leake allowed six hits and no walks in his first win since June 12.Mike was really good today, Matheny said. He got into some bad spots and made better pitchers when that happened.The Brewers wasted Chris Carters leadoff triple in the seventh, his first since 2014, and didnt score after putting runners at first and third with no outs in the third.To sustain a rally, you have to get something going there, Brewers manager Craig Counnsell said.

Diaz reached on his 19th infield single with two out. He then never stopped and scored from first on Stephen Piscottys bloop single off center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis glove.I just ran hard and looked at the third base coach, Diaz said. I ran like it was a double in the gap and he sent me to home plate. I was ready to keep running.The 31-year-old Guerra walked Leake with two out in the sixth to end his day. The former independent league right-hander gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out five.I didnt make quality pitches at times, Guerra said. When I missed my spot, they took advantage and got some big hits.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: LF Matt Holliday (ankle) didnt start for a second straight day, but flied out as a pinch hitter in the eighth. ...

PHOENIX - The Miami Marlins managed three hits off the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cheap Nike Air Max Clearance . Two of them were booming home runs off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton. That was the difference in the Marlins 3-2 victory on Monday night, the Diamondbacks fourth loss in a row. Patrick Corbin, trying to become the first left-handed starter in 35 years to go 10-0, allowed two hits through eight innings but gave up a soaring, two-run homer to left by Stanton that tied the game at 2 in the sixth. Stantons line-drive home run to right off ex-Marlin Heath Bell (2-1) in the ninth put Miami ahead for the first time. It was the 100th homer of his career, and sixth in 43 at-bats at Chase Field. "He took that thing over, didnt he?" Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Yeah, that was an impressive, impressive night for him." Stanton, activated June 10 after six weeks on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain, said both were good pitches. "Just help the team win, man," Stanton said. "Thats what I didnt do all April and obviously all May I wasnt playing." Redmond said he expected an adjustment period for Stanton when he came off the DL. "And there really wasnt," the manager said. "He came off the DL swinging the bat great. You could just see he was more confident. His swing was better, everything was better. Hes been lights out ever since." Bell pitched all of last season for Miami, and Stanton was asked if his familiarity with the relievers pattern helped him in the at bat. "Yeah," Stanton said, "for the most part." Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said its time to reassess how to pitch to Stanton. "The guy is swinging the bat good. We have to find a better way to get around him," Gibson said. "You can see how strong he is. He just barrelled it." Mike Dunn (2-1) threw a scoreless eighth inning to get the win. Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save in 12 tries. Willie Bloomquist flied out to deep centre to end the game. Paul Goldschmidt drove in both Arizona runs with a homer and a single. Corbin, with no decisions in his last three starts, was trying to become the first left-handed starter to begin the season 10-0 since Ron Guidry went 13-0 for the New York Yankees in 1978, according to STATS. Corbin struck out seven and walked one but the Diamondbacks lost for the first time in his 14 starts. Gibson said Corbin deserved better. "Patrick was great," Gibson said. "He pitched his heart out, two runs. We scored eight runs in four games. ... We should have had several runs tonight. We are in a bad spot at the plate right now. Guys are trying to do too much. " Arizona was 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position. "More of the same," Gibson said. Goldschmidt, hitless in his previous 12 at-bats and just 3 for 33, lined Jacob Turners 1-0 pitch over the right-field fence to put Arizona up 1-0 in the third, his 16th home run. The Diamondbacks made it 2-0 in the fifth when Gerardo Parra singled, stole second and scored when Goldschmidt singled sharply to centre. Goldschmidt leads the NL with 61 RBIs. Corbin, meanwhile, was cruising through five. Only two Miami batters reached during that span, Stanton on third baseman Martin Prados two-out error in the first and a two-out walk to Marcell Ozuna in the fourth. In the sixth, pinch-hitter Justin Ruggiano grounded out, but Juan Pierres opposite-field single to left ended the no-hit bid. Ed Lucas popped out but Stanton hit a high drive on Corbins 2-0 pitch into the second deck above the Arizona bullpen in left and it was tied at 2. The Diamondbacks, swept in three games at San Diego last weekend, opened a six-game homestand. Turner allowed two runs and six hits in five innings. NOTES: Diamondbacks RHP Ian Kennedy dropped his appeal and began serving a 10-game suspension for his role in last weeks brawl with the Dodgers. ... Arizona RHP Randall Delgado, who came over from Atlanta in the Justin Upton trade, will be recalled from Triple-A Reno to start Tuesday night in the spot normally taken by RHP Brandon McCarthy. Miami RHP Nathan Eovaldi, out all season with right shoulder inflammation, will make his first start of the year. To make room for Eovaldi, the Marlins optioned Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville. ... McCarthy, out with a shoulder injury, threw off a mound and could get a rehab start next. McCarthy says a seizure, related to the head injury he sustained from a line drive last September, will not affect his comeback.

LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns do not believe place-kicker Cody Parkey should take the fall for Sundays overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins.The team also has no plans to change kickers before the Browns play in Washington, coach Hue Jackson said Monday.This latest drama came after Parkey went 3-for-6 in his Browns debut. Parkeys missed 46-yard attempt on the final play of regulation led to a loss and came after Parkey was rushed onto the team over the weekend.I think its unfair just to dump it all on him, Jackson said.Parkey joined the Browns after Patrick Murray hurt his knee in practice on Friday. On the chance someone might call, Parkey kicked on his own Friday afternoon near his home in Jupiter, Florida. He heard from the Browns, then flew to Cleveland on Friday night.He went to the facility Saturday morning and had no time to practice before he got on the plane with his new teammates to play the Dolphins. ?His first warm-ups came before the game. During the game he made field goals of 46, 48 and 38 yards, but he missed kicks of 41, 42 (off the upright) and 46 yards (the potential game-winner).Everybody says Well, thats the kickers job; well, it is his job, Jackson said. But normally a guy has a job, hes been around his employer a little bit. Hes been around his teammates a little bit. So it was tough, it was tough circumstances.It was unfortunate. If he would have made it, wed be celebrating right now. But he didnt.Every one of the misses went left, which might indicate Parkey was anxious and trying too hard. After the game, he merely said, They all missed left, so ... aim right.Parkey kicked in only three games in 2015 before going on injured reserve with a groin injury. In his rookie season in 2014, he went to the Pro Bowl. When Murray was injured, the Browns had a choice of a young player like Parkey or a veteran like Robbie Gould, who was cut by the Bears before the season started.We felt good about watching [Parkey] kick on tape. We felt good about everything that he was doing, Jackson said. We felt he was the best of the group, and we all made that decision together.Jackson said any chatter that the coaching staff preferred Gould should be dismissed. The Miami Herald reported from league sources that special-teams coach Chris Tabor wanted Gould, but the front office took Parkey, in part because he cost less. Tabor was assistant special teams coach in Chicago from 2008-10, when Gould was the Bears kicker. Cheap Wholesale Air Max. Jackson said the Browns picked Parkey because he was the guy that we wanted. The team has somewhere near $50 million in salary-cap room, and it did now know what Gould would cost because it decided on Parkey. But if Gould would have signed for the veterans minimum, which seems likely, the difference between Gould and Parkey would have been less than $500,000.Any decision thats made here by the football team we make together, Jackson said. I felt very comfortable. And if theres anything that comes out of this building it should come from me, not from anybody else. If I didnt say it, I guarantee you nobody else has any right to ever say anything about we should have had this guy or somebody wished they had that guy.We took the guy that we wanted. Thats Cody Parkey. Thats the guy we put on our team and thats the guy who kicked for us.The Browns M.O. through this point of the season has been to favor younger players who can grow together under Jackson. Murray fit that mold before he was injured.Gould is 34, Parkey 24. The past two years when Parkey was in the league in Philadelphia, he made 35-of-40 kicks (87.5 percent), 4-for-4 from 50-yards plus. Gould was 42-for-51 (82.4 percent), 7-for-10 from 50 yards plus.But Gould had a stretch last season when he went 2-for-5. That included misses of 40 and 36 yards in an overtime loss to San Francisco. The 36-yard try could have won the game on the last play of regulation. The next game, against Washington, Gould missed a 50-yard kick with 1:45 left that would have tied the game. At the end of this preseason, Gould also missed two extra points in the finale against the Browns. The Bears decided to part ways with him, and Gould has not been picked up.The Browns stand by the decision to sign and keep Parkey.I challenge any of us to come in here on a flight on late Friday night, wake up and meet the coach for a second and get on another flight and head to Miami and not know really a lot of your teammates, but some, Jackson said. Walk out and kick in pregame, and then kick in a game, where you attempt five of these feel goals. Not two, not one, but five.Thats a lot of pressure. And then heres the game-winner. Hitting you right in the face. Thats a tough situation. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

PITTSBURGH -- Neil Walker eyed Johnny Cuetos fastball and turned on it. Cheap NBA Hoodies . Before the Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman could get the bat out of his hands, the ball was nestled into the glove of Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto. In one motion Walker flipped his bat in faux disgust then turned back toward the dugout. "You hit a ball hard and sometimes you see that its the guys night and it seemed like it was one of those," Walker said. It always seems that way when Cueto faces the Pirates. The Cincinnati ace allowed one hit over eight dominant innings as the Reds pounded Pittsburgh in a 6-0 win on Friday night. Cueto (3-0) struck out six, walked one and allowed just three balls out of the infield. Pittsburghs Brandon Inge provided the lone Pirates hit with a single to left with one out in the fifth. "He looked really good tonight, though, like the Johnny Cueto of old," Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. "He had great stuff, great stamina and he really pitched a heck of a ballgame." Cueto improved to 13-4 all-time against the Pirates while shaving his career ERA against Pittsburgh to 2.33. Not bad for a player who missed more than a month with a back injury. There appeared to be no such issues in his third start since being taking off the disabled list on May 19. Mixing an effective changeup with a fastball that still topped out at 94 mph in the eighth, Cueto kept Pittsburgh off balance all night. "I feel good," Cueto said. "I make the adjustment that I had to make and I feel good so far. It feels good to come back here and pitch well." Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips hit solo home runs off Pittsburghs Wandy Rodriguez (6-3) before piling on late against reliever Mike Zagurski in a rare hiccup by baseballs best bullpen through the first third of the season. Bruce has struggled against Rodriguez throughout his career entering the night just 2 for 32 (.063) against the veteran lefthander. Those numbers inched up when he took a 2-0 fastball and sent it into the first row of seats in right centre for his eighth homer of the year. "You know its there but Im a better hitter than I have shown against him in the past," Bruce said. "Its nice to get one off him and now I have to keep on going when I face him." Phillips followed suit in the sixth, lining a shot that scraped the top of the leftfield wall just over the glove of Pittsburghs Starling Marte. Wandy Rodriguez (6-3) kept Cincinnati in check otherwise on a night he struggled with his command at times. The left-hander surrendered five hits and walked three with five strikeouts in seven innings. While Cuetos had his way with Pittsburgh in his 20 career starts, the Pirates have made inroads recently. They spoiled his chance at winning his 20th game in his final start last season and he left a 3-1 loss to the Pirates on April 13 with a strained back that sidelined him for five weeks. He returned with five effective innings in a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on May 20 then backed it up an even stronger performance six days later against the Chicago Cubs. He exited with a three-run lead the bullpen ultimately gave away in a 5-4 10-inning loss. This time, Cueto hardly needed the bullpen at all. Inges single in the fifth was a harmless one-hopper in front of leftfielder Derrick Robinson. If Inge doesnt get the ball down, theres a chance the Reds no-hit the Pirates for the second time in eight months. Homer Bailey threw a no-no in Pittsburgh last September. "Luckily Brandon saved us all with a half-swing base hit," Walker said. "Maybe we should all have half-swinged tonight. Nothing else really worked for us." The momentum Inge provided lasted all of one pitch. Clint Barmes ended the inning by hitting into a double play and Pittsburgh didnt manage another baserunner the rest of the way. "Johnny was Johnny," Bruce said. "He was brilliant. Obviously, his numbers in the game spoke for themselves. Hes a huge piece of the puzzle to have back." NOTES: Votto went 0 for 3 but walked twice to push his season total to a National League-leading 46 ... The game was the 1000th played at PNC Park, which opened in 2001. The Pirates are 488-512 all-time at PNC, including 49-52 against the Reds ... Pittsburgh finished May 19-9, the franchises best record in a calendar month since September, 1992, the last time the Pirates made the playoffs ... The series continues on Saturday when Pittsburghs Francisco Liriano (3-1, 2.35 ERA) faces Cincinnatis Mike Leake (4-2, 3.02). As part of Heritage Weekend the Pirates will wear replica uniforms of the Homestead Grays while the Reds will wear Cincinnati Tigers jerseys. NBA T-shirts From China .

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Sabres fired assistant coaches James Patrick and Kevyn Adams on Thursday in the first moves made by newly promoted head coach Ron Rolston. A person familiar with the decisions confirmed the moves, and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Sabres have not announced the moves.

He closed the season going 15-11-5 as the teams interim coach in replacing Lindy Ruff, who was fired in February. The shuffle does not come as a surprise.

Rolston is a first-time NHL head coach, who spent the previous two years coaching the Sabres AHL affiliate in Rochester, N.Y.

In its drive to fight age-fudging at the junior level the BCCI has asked all state associations to apply regulations more stringently while admitting players at the Under-19 level. Jordan 13 For Sale Cheap . Starting from the 2016-17 season, players who enter competitive cricket at the Under-19 level will need to submit at least three documents to attest their date of birth, while the age-verification programme [AVP] and the Tanner-Whitehouse 3 method [TW3] to test bone maturity will continue to be implemented at the Under-16 level.There are some cricketers who enter at the Under-19 age-group level. Such players should submit at least three documents to support their date of birth if they are to be considered to participate in the Under-19 tournaments directly without having entered the BCCI circuit at the Under-16 level, Ajay Shirke, the BCCI secretary, said in an e-mail to the state associations on July 1.The move came after the BCCI decided last month, during a working committee meeting, that players who have represented India in one Under-19 World Cup cannot take part in another edition of the tournament, even if they meet the age criteria to do so.Age-fudging has always been a controversial topic and was in the headlines last December after former India captain Rahul Dravid, in his MAK Pataudi Memorial lecture, said the scourge of overage players in junior cricket was no different to fixing and corruption.Despite its efforts, the BCCI has been largely unsuccessful in tackling age-fudging and players have faked birth certificates to gain entry into junior cricket. According to Shirke, it was the responsibility of the state associations to put an end to the problem of fake certificates. You are requested to discourage cricketers who submit birth certificates issued just a few years before, his email said. As per the Government of India rules, the birth has to be registered within one year of the birth of the child.In 2012 the BCCI decided to adopt the Tanner-Whitehouse 3 method [TW3], which determines the age of a child based on the growth of bones in the hand, especially the wrist. The margin of error in this method is six months. Prior to that the BCCI had relied on the Greulich & Pyle method [GP method] at a certified hospital, but the margin of error in this method could be up to two years. In 2012, the BCCI also introduced the age-verification programme [AVP], which is overseen by Dr Vece Paes, a former Olympic hockey player and one of the leading sports medicine specialists in the country.Shirke said that both methods will be used to ensure player eligibility at the Under-16 level. Under-16 is the formal entry point for players participating in the BCCI Junior Tournaments and they have to undergo age verification process to be eligible. The age-verification process involves bone rating - TW3 method. Only those who pass the bone rating are eligible to play in the Under-16 tournaments. Wholesale Jordan Retro 13 .

As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. MONTREAL -- The World Anti-Doping Agency has detailed serious failings of doping control management at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, saying the system was only saved from collapsing by the enormous resourcefulness and goodwill of some key staff.In a 55-page report from its Independent Observer team led by British lawyer Jonathan Taylor, WADA said the logistical issues which put a strain on the testing process were foreseeable and entirely avoidable during the games in August.The report blamed a lack of coordination, budget cutbacks, tension between the local organizing committee and Brazils anti-doping agency, and inadequate training for the problems that included days at the Athletes Village when only half of the planned out-of-competition samples could be collected.The aggregate effect was to strain the basic sample collection process at competition venues and in the Athletes Village close to breaking point, with many discrepancies observed in the sample collection procedure, the report said. Ultimately, it was only due to the enormous resourcefulness and goodwill of some key doping control personnel working at the Games that the process did not break down entirely.Due to their initiative, tenacity and professionalism in the face of great difficulties, the many problems identified above were patched over and sample collection was conducted in a manner that ensured the identity and integrity of the samples.Doping was heavily in the spotlight in the months leading up to the Rio Games, with allegations of state-sponsored doping in Russia leading to sanctions against some Russian athletes and the retesting of 840 samples from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics barring dozens of other athletes from competing in Brazil.WADA said the role of its Independent Observer Team is to help instill confidence in athletes and the public as to the quality, effectiveness and reliability of the anti-doping program for the Olympics, and to make recommendations for improvements.Many of the recommendations related to training and treatment of volunteers, proper attention to rosters and protocol, more lead-time for doping control officers in the venues and better logistics and equipment to locate athletes for out-of-competition testing.Ultimately, many athletes targeted for testing in the Athletes Village simply could not be found and the mission had to be aborted, the report said. On some days, up to 50 per cent of planned target tests were aborted in this way.Poor planning, transport issues and a lack of catering for chapperones resulted in a higher-than-expected rates of absences, adding to the burden on doping control officers and other delegates. Air Jordan Retro 13 For Sale. A total of 3,237 athletes from 137 countries were tested during the games, representing 28.6 percent of the 11,303 athletes who participated. Of those, 2,611 -- or 23.1 percent -- were tested once, 527 were tested twice, 81 were tested three times and one was tested six times.Some problems outlined by WADAs observers:- There were almost 500 fewer tests conducted than organizers had planned during the games. The samples taken included 4,037 urine tests, 411 blood tests and 434 blood plus ABP or ABP blood tests for a total of 4,882, significantly short of the 5,380 targeted.- Data entry errors led to nearly 100 samples analyzed by the anti-doping laboratory not being matched to an athlete. WADA said about 40 percent of those were because of the recording of an incorrect bottle code in the computer system, but noted that Rio 2016 assisted the IOC in correcting the errors so the samples could be matched to athletes and their testing histories could be updated.- The expected daily maximum of 350 urine samples was never reached during the games. The highest daily total was 307 on Aug. 11, but on the majority of days, fewer than 200 urine samples were received.- There was no out-of-competition testing conducted in soccer, and little or no in-competition blood testing in some high risk-sports, including weightlifting.- Blood testing sections were underutilized, with some shifts at the laboratory having no blood samples to analyze at the beginning of the games.As a result ... full analytical capacity was not exploited, which is disappointing, given that the latest equipment and best experts in the world were available, the report said.On a positive note, WADA commended the International Olympic Committee for embracing new advances in the fight against doping, including the creation of the Pre-Games Intelligence Taskforce, which reported on July 24 that 4,125 of the 11,470 athletes on the entrants list for the Games had no record of any testing in 2016, including 1,913 from sports identified as higher risk.WADA also said the Brazilian anti-doping laboratory was superbly equipped and operated very securely and generally very efficiently, and now represents an outstanding legacy from the Games for the anti-doping movement in South America. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
