LONG POND, Pa. Marco Verratti Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. is having a blast again, with a shared bond with his crew, comfort in his own skin as NASCARs most popular driver, even finding fun 140 characters at a time on Twitter. Winning races sure has a way of easing burdens on Junior. Earnhardt turned Brad Keselowskis trash into Victory Lane treasure, pulling away down the stretch Sunday at Pocono Raceway for his second win of the season and a secured spot in the Chase field. He paired his first career win at Pocono with his Daytona 500 championship for his first multi-win season since 2004. "I feel like Im such a lucky guy to have this second opportunity again to be competitive," Earnhardt said. But for as strong as he ran in the No. 88 Chevrolet, Keselowski gift-wrapped this win when he yielded the lead with five laps left in a desperate attempt to clear debris from his grille and cool his overheated engine. Keselowskis gamble backfired -- he couldnt get the draft needed from the lapped traffic to clear his car and make one final pass for the win on Earnhardt. Keselowskis No. 2 Ford still had the oomph in the engine needed to finish the race, and he had his second-straight runner-up finish. "It was definitely a mistake because the engine made it," Keselowski said, rubbing his face. "It probably shouldnt have." Junior shook off the rising red gauges in the No. 88 that could have had his car meet a similar fate as Keselowski. "They were still within good reason to stand on it and give it hell," he said. Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and rookie Kyle Larson completed the top five. Earnhardt gave Hendrick Motorsports three straight wins, following back-to-back victories by Jimmie Johnson. Johnson overcame a pit road accident to finish sixth. Owner Rick Hendrick texted Earnhardt before the race to let him know he would not attend and would see him next week at Michigan. Earnhardt told him, "Ill drink one for you after its over." Earnhardt stuck to his end of the deal, spraying all types of beverages in a jubilant Victory Lane. Johnson was the first driver over to congratulate him. I dont have much to do tomorrow," Earnhardt said, grinning. "Tonights going to be a long one." Earnhardt, long NASCARs most popular driver, gave the Pocono crowd plenty of reason to go wild. He was mobbed by almost 100 fans outside the Pocono media centre, screaming his name and clamouring for a picture with the winner. He waved and ducked into a waiting car, whisked away for another party. Maybe the fans should try tweeting at him to earn his attention. A reluctant participant on Twitter for years, Earnhardt warmed fast to the social media site after winning Daytona. He said he underestimated the amount of fun hed have interacting with fans. He loved the "go get ems" that dot his feed, though its the "haters" that he really feeds off. "The real short ones, like, You suck, those are the best ones," he said, smiling. "I just favourite them and block them. Its so much fun." Earnhardts second win means he is guaranteed to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. He won for the 29th time in 519 career Sprint Cup starts. "When we won at Daytona, man, it made the rest of the year a lot more relaxing, a lot easier," he said. "It makes it fun because you can just go to the track and just race, not worry about points." Juniors breakthrough was more meaningful because has come in crew chief Steve Letartes final season. Letarte, who had a Pocono win with Jeff Gordon, has become one of Earnhardts best friends. That tightness off the track just may have sparked the wins on the track. "Maybe thats why him and I are such good friends, because I might be the only one in the world that doesnt wonder what its like to be Dale Junior," Letarte said. "Hes a normal guy, hes a great guy, hes a great talent. I dont have any idea what its like to be him." Earnhardt led three Hendrick drivers in the top 10; Gordon finished eighth. Johnsons bid for a third straight victory was derailed when he connected on pit road with Marcos Ambrose. Coming off wins in the Coca-Cola 600 and at Dover, Johnson was fifth when he pitted under yellow. Johnson hit Ambrose and spun 180-degrees, which forced him to back into his stall for more repairs. He needed two tires, had right-front damage and dropped to 29th on the restart. Busch posted his first top 10 since his win at Martinsville nine races ago. He salvaged a rough day for his team that saw fellow Stewart-Haas Racing drivers Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick drop from contention with various issues. Stewart held the lead and was in great position late to win until he was busted for speeding on pit road and was dropped to 31st. Harvick was running second when had tire trouble. Stewart finished 13th, Harvick 14th, and SHRs Danica Patrick was 37th after she smacked the wall with 22 laps left. All those mishaps -- and one loose wrapper -- all made it a race to remember for Earnhardt. "A year or two ago, we werent running to seize the opportunity," Earnhardt said, "and now we are." Presnel Kimpembe Paris Saint-Germain Jersey .35 million.

ROME -- Roma beat Napoli 3-2 in the first leg of their Italian Cup semifinal on Wednesday thanks to a double from Ivory Coast forward Gervinho. Joe Mullen Penguins Jersey . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. But Gervinho scored the winner two minutes from time. "In our league, ninety per cent of the matches are played defensively but its good to play like this against strong players," Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi said. "Its good to see games like this, theyre an advert for football. "It wasnt good for us mentally to concede a minute after the restart. But after they made it 2-2, we responded brilliantly. Another good game like tonights awaits us in Naples." Napoli started the brighter but it was Roma which broke the deadlock in the 13th minute when Gervinho ran onto a delightful through-ball from Francesco Totti and rounded goalkeeper Pepe Reina before firing home from three meters. Strootman doubled Romas lead in the 32nd with a stunning rocket into the top right corner from more than 30 metres. Gonzalo Higuain pulled one back for Napoli a minute into the second half as the ball deflected off Mehdi Benatia and goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis got his hands to it but could not prevent it from going in. It was the former Real Madrid strikers 16th of the season. Substitute Dries Mertens levelled in the 70th, four minutes after coming off the bench, when he burst between two defenders and blasted an effort past De Sanctis. Gervinho secured the match for Roma when he collected Alessandro Florenzis pass and coolly slotted into the near side of goal. Udinese, which has eliminated both Milan teams, beat Fiorentina on Tuesday in a match which saw three wonderful goals. Antonio Di Natale broke the deadlock in the 36th minute with his first goal from open play since September but Juan Manuel Vargas smashed an effort in off the underside of the crossbar a minute from halftime. Substitute Luis Muriel scored a long-range winner for Udinese, which is hoping to reach the final for the first time since 1922. Both sides eliminated illustrious teams in the previous round. Napoli knocked out holder Lazio, while Roma defeated Juventus, which is on course for a third successive league title. Matt Hunwick Penguins Jersey . Joel Embiid was nearly unstoppable in the paint in the second half, and Naadir Tharpe seemingly couldnt miss. Phil Kessel Penguins Jersey . Richard Jefferson scored 17 points and Diante Garrett had a career-high 15 points as the Jazz had seven players with 10 points or more in Utahs largest margin of victory this season.BOSTON -- Jonny Gomes knew hed have another chance at the same pitch after looking bad on a pair of sliders. He didnt miss the next time. Gomes hit a pinch-hit homer leading off the ninth inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 2-1 win over the suddenly offensively challenged San Diego Padres on Wednesday night. Gomes lined a 2-2 pitch off Luke Gregerson (4-4) into the first row of seats above the Green Monster for his second game-ending homer of the season. "That guy throws good sliders like he did the inning before and he did to me," said Gomes, who swung and missed badly on two that sailed away. "The first three pitches no one was going to hit them. I let one go and then kind of set my sights on getting one up, and got good wood on it." Gomes rounded third after his game-ending shot, took his helmet off, held it like a fullback going into the line of scrimmage and was mobbed by his teammates at home plate. "The clubhouse stuff has been talked about more than his play on the field, but hes been great for us," Boston starting pitcher Jon Lester said of the easygoing Gomes. "I just had three swings tonight," Gomes said, standing in the middle of clubhouse wearing red, white and blue shorts. "Those guys did a lot of work. Whether its me or someone else, winnings fun. Its contagious." Mike Carp had two hits and scored a run for Boston, which is 7-1 on its nine-game homestand that concludes Thursday against the Padres. "When we get into some of these National League teams, we dont have a lot of history against their guys coming out of the bullpen," Boston manager John Farrell said of the move. "In this case, Gomes had faced Gregerson twice and also hit a walkoff against him previous." Carlos Quentin went 3 for 4 with a double and two singles for the Padres. San Diego has scored just five runs in its five-game losing streak. "Little bit up in the strike zone. Threw a couple of good ones down that Gomes swung through," Padres manager Bud Black said of the game-winning homer. "Im sure he tried to execute the same one that he did the previous two for strikes, just left it a little bit up. Gomes was probably looking for it. Gomes has some pull-side power, he can elevate the ball and thats what he did." Koji Uehara (2-0) pitched one inning for the win. The Red Sox squandered a good chance in the eighth. Dustin Pedroia led off with a double off the Monster against Nick Vincent. After David Ortiz was intentionallyy walked for the second time, Gregerson relieved and retired the next three batters, striking out Daniel Nava and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys. San Diego starter Edinson Volquez pitched six innings on his 30th birthday, giving up one run on seven hits, striking out six with one intentional walk. "When we lose a game like that, theres nothing we can do," he said. "We battled the whole game. We lost in the ninth. Cant happen. Weve got to come back tomorrow and win the next game." Lester had a similar line over seven, allowing six hits, one run, walking one and striking out five. He entered just 2-4 with a 6.98 ERA in his last eight starts. Lester laboured in the first, throwing 32 pitches and giving up a run. Plate umpire Doug Eddings called time just as Lester was starting to throw a pitch to Chase Headley. It hit him on the foot, but was waved off. Headley then proceeded to have a 10-pitch at-bat, reaching on a single. Kyle Blanks followed with an RBI single to centre. Boston tied it 1-1 when Carp singled leading off the fourth and scored when left fielder Quentin misplayed a carom off the Green Monster on Saltalamacchias double. Lester settled down after the first, retiring the Padres in order on just five pitches in the second. He gave up a hit, but needed only 12 in the third. Volquez struck out the side in the second after allowing Carps leadoff single. Both dugouts were warned by Eddings after Volquez hit Jose Iglesias with the first pitch in the third inning. NOTES: Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz, on the 15-day disabled list since June 9 with a neck strain, threw from flat ground at about 100 feet. Buchholz was 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA before the injury. ... The Padres made a lineup change about three hours before the game, moving Quentin from DH to left field and Blanks from left to DH. ... Farrell gave 1B Mike Napoli the day off and inserted Carp at first, batting him sixth. "Trying to get a few more left-handed bats in the lineup," Farrell said. ... Quentin was 0 for 11 against Lester. ... Boston SS Iglesias was named AL rookie of the month for June, the first Red Sox player to win it since Jacoby Ellsbury did it in September 2007.

Stefan (Skyscraper) Struve showed early on in his UFC career that he should never be counted out. Brandin Cooks Rams Jersey . At UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany, in June 2009, the six-foot-11 Dutch heavyweight was gushing blood out of his forehead after taking a string of hammer blows from Denis Stojnic while on his back in the first round. Stojnics forearm looked as if it had been dipped in blood. But a bloody Struve rallied in the second round to take Stojnics back and choke him out. The German crowd roared as Struve, his face a crimson mask and long torso tinged red from blood, rose in victory. "Thats one hell of a Band-Aid," UFC president Dana White said dryly, referring to a plaster the size of a cigarette package on Struves forehead at the post-fight news conference. Struves size -- he is the tallest fighter in UFC history and is tied for longest reach with light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones -- combined with slick kickboxing and submission skills have helped him rise up the heavyweight ranks while compiling a 9-4 record in the UFC. But his career appeared over last year when he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. Given the OK to resume fighting by his doctors in the Netherlands and the UFCs cardiologist, Struve (29-6) returns to the cage Saturday when he takes on Matt Mitrione at UFC 175 in Las Vegas. "It looks good," Struve, who divides his training between the Netherlands and Los Angeles. "I just need to do checkups two times a year with my doctors in Holland and two times a year with my doctors in LA. "Thats no problem for me. I actually like that I know for sure that my heart is healthy." Mitrione (7-3) is a former NFL defensive lineman who switched to MMA via Season 10 of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality TV show in 2009. Struve, ranked 12th among heavyweight contenders, last fought in March 2013 when he suffered a broken jaw in a knockout loss to hard-hitting Mark Hunt in Japan. Struve says he had been sick for six weeks before the bout and was still under the weather during the fight. "I felt horrible." And he just couldnt recover after. "I just couldnt get over the jet lag. I couldnt sleep at night," he said. "I just didnt feel good and I didnt have any energy." He returned to full training some three months after the loss. Then one day at his parents house, he got dizzy standing up after working at the computer. He sat down and blacked out briefly, "which scared me because I had never had that." He went to the hospital, which couldnt find anything but asked him to come back for a stress ultrasound test which uses high frequency sound waves to examine the hearts anatomy and function. "Thats where they found it," he said. Struve was diagnosed with a leaking aortic valve, as well an enlarged heart. It meant that his heart was only pumping 60 per cent of his blood into the aorta and then the rest of his body. The remaining 40 per cent was ending up back in the heart chamber. Doctors used medication to control his blood pressure and the demands on his heart. Struve says he will probably have to undergo surgery at some point but hopes to do it after his fighting career. "As it is right now, its getting better every day," he said. He kept training throughout, raising his regimen as his health improved. He also taught MMA, which he said he enjoyed immensely. "I just enjoy being healthy and living a good life," he said. "I love this sport." MMA takes a toll, however. While Struve puts on exciting fights, he has endured punishing knockouts losses at the hands of Junior Dos Santos, Roy (Big Country) Nelson, Travis Browne and Hunt. The big Dutchman says he feels a lot more energy these days. "And a lot more joy in life, if you want to say so, because if you feel tied all day long, youre just miserable." But Struve says he may have taken time off from fighting even if it hadnt had the heart scare. He had plenty on his mind. "This was by far the hardest year of my life," he added. "Not only because of this but my father passed away in October after being sick for a year and a half. And then there were some other things that happened close to me that really impacted me." Back training, his performance in the gym gives him confidence that ring rust wont be an issue Saturday night. While Struve says he has got on well with Mitrione in the past, he says its a "little strange" the American asked for the fight before he was cleared to compete again.

"I realize that I behaved bad in Boston," Ramirez said.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma wants his high-powered team to get used to playing tight-checking playoff hockey before the post-season begins next month. St. Louis doesnt need the lure of the playoffs as an excuse to get stingy. The space-eating Blues have been doing it all year, and it showed in a taut 1-0 road win on Sunday. Frustrating the NHLs best power play during a pivotal two-man disadvantage at the start of the second period, the Blues continued their mastery of the Eastern Conference by beating the Penguins the way theyve beaten so many teams this season. The room to manoeuvr that Pittsburgh stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin usually enjoy disappeared as St. Louis clogged passing lanes and dictated play defensively. David Backes deflected a slap shot by Alexander Steen past Marc-Andre Fleury midway through the third period for the games only goal and Brian Elliott stopped 33 shots to pick up his fourth shutout of the season as the Blues moved three points clear of Chicago in the race for the best record in the Western Conference. "When youre in a tight game like that against a good team, the guys kind of rose up to the challenge and I tried to make a couple saves and get the rebounds out of the zone and they did the rest," Elliott said. Fleury made 26 saves for the Penguins but watched Backes deflection carom off his glove and into the net just after a penalty against Malkin expired. "I just saw the guy raise his stick for the shot," Fleury said. "There were a bunch of people in front. I tried to cover some net but I didnt see it go in. St. Louis bounced back from a one-sided loss at Philadelphia on Saturday to improve the leagues best road record to 23-11-3. Pittsburghs top-ranked power play went 0-for-5 a day after scoring three times in a win over Tampa Bay. When Elliott wasnt getting a pad on the puck, his teammates were. The Blues blocked 25 shots, with the Penguins frustration growing at every turn as the Blues improved to 20-5-2 against the Eastern Conference, the best interconference record in the league. Pittsburgh had a 5-on-3 power play at the beginning of the second period for more than 90 seconds without bbeing able to sneak something by Elliott. Cornelius Lucas Rams Jersey. Most of the time the Penguins struggled generating a shot as the Blues effectively disrupted Pittsburghs rhythm. "We just kind of cleared lanes and I was able to see the ones they took," Elliott said. "Whenever guys are moving big guys out of the way, it just helps and you saw guys get in front of shots, block them and clear them down." Malkin was called for high-sticking 9:17 into the third and he was barely out of the box and back on the ice when Backes gave St. Louis the lead. The puck cycled to the point and Alexander Steen fired a slap shot that Backes found a way to nick as it sailed by. His 24th goal of the year proved more than enough. Elliott wobbled several times — including at least two saves where it appeared the puck was creeping to the goal line when the whistle blew — but didnt collapse. When the clock expired after one last clear up the zone, the game ended with the unusual sight of Malkin trying to mix it up with Alex Pietrangelo. Bylsma said coming into an important weekend he wanted his team to get used to playing tightly contested, low-scoring games. Pittsburgh survived one on Saturday, rallying for a 4-3 overtime win against the streaking Lightning that featured 40 minutes of clamp-down hockey and 22 minutes of frantic play. The Blues, who have positioned themselves into contenders in the West by sealing off the net, would not be lulled into the kind of end-to-end stretches that allow the Penguins to run free. "We still want to do a better job in these games and win them," Crosby said. "We have done a pretty good job of being patient when weve been in these kinds of games." At times, Bylsma wonders if his club was too patient, particularly in the first period. "The first 20 minutes we backed them off with speed," he said. "We had some opportunities and needed to have more of a drive and shoot mentality." NOTES: The Penguins played with seven defencemen instead of six, a move Bylsma said was needed in a game where he knew open ice would be at a premium. ...

MIAMI -- David Beckham will take part in a news conference Wednesday to discuss his progress in trying to bring a Major League Soccer expansion team to Miami. Isaiah Oliver Falcons Jersey . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. Expansion in Miami is contingent on securing a financing plan and location for a new stadium. Beckham has scouted possible sites and is seeking investors to assist with startup costs such as stadium construction and player acquisitions. Among those who might become involved is Beckhams friend LeBron James, who has had recent conversations with the retired soccer star about bringing a team to Miami. "Its looking very promising," James said Monday. "Hopefully they can go in the right direction as we all planned. Its a great place for soccer."

Rooney has endured a difficult start to the new Premier League season and has been left on the substitutes bench for the previous three matches, having failed to score since the opening day success at Bournemouth. As well as his form, the 30-year-olds position in the England team has also been a major taking point following his spell as a midfielder under Roy Hodgson at Euro 2016.  Rooney stressed on Tuesday he would play in any position decided by interim manager Gareth Southgate, even if that meant settling for place on the substitutes bench.  Jamie Vardy, Jordan Henderson, Wayne Rooney, Dele Alli and Theo Walcott in training at St Georges Park ahead of Englands match against Malta But when asked whether he felt Rooney was still a big player for England, Stones said: Definitely.

CURITIBA, Brazil -- A little under a year after the sudden death of star striker Christian Benitez, Ecuador has unearthed a new goal-scoring dynamo. Tim Hardaway Jersey . Enner Valencias two calmly-taken goals that secured a 2-1 comeback win over Honduras on Friday took his tournament tally to three and put the team in second spot in a group that is likely to be won by France. Valencia, who plays for Mexican club Pachuca, only consolidated his position in the Ecuador starting lineup after Benitez died from a heart problem last July. "He hasnt even celebrated a year with us, I think hes grown a lot, improved a lot," Ecuadors coach Reinaldo Rueda said of his new star forward. Valencia, who is no relation to his captain Antonio Valencia, hopes the "joy" that the win has generated will help inspire the team in its crucial final Group E match against France, which has tallied eight goals and conceded two in a pair of dominating wins. Ecuador has three competition points, level with Switzerland but ahead on goal difference after the Swiss lost 5-2 to France earlier Friday. Honduras, which has never won a World Cup match, isnt completely out of contention despite its two losses but it faces an uphill battle ahead of its last group game against Switzerland. "We still have that possibility, though it is remote and we will fight for it," Honduras coach Luis Fernando Suarez said. Rueda praised the Honduras team for its tenacity and expressed the hope that his former charges could do Ecuador a favour by beating the Swiss. Rueda steered Honduras at the last World Cup in South Africa. Should Honduras beat Switzerland, Ecuador would only need a draw against France to progress to the knockout rounds of the World Cup for only the second time. The first time Ecuador qualified for the second round was in 2006 and, coincidentally, the team was then was managed by current Honduras coach Suarez. Rueda conceded it was difficult to meet his former team in such a crucial match. "For me, its a mix of emotions, professional and personal," he said. Honduras took the lead in the 31st minute with its first World Cup goal in 32 years when Carlo Costly latched onto a long ball following a misjudgment from Ecuador defender Jorge Guagua. The goal ended a 511-minute drought that stretched back to the 1982 World Cup. Valencia equalized three minutes later, tapping in with his left foot from close range after sloppy Honduran defending failed to stop a cross in from the right. Honduras applied more of the pressure leading up to halftime and nearly took the lead. A fierce free kick in injury time from Victor Bernardez forced a good save from Ecuador goalkeeper Alexander Dominguez. Honduras got the ball in the Ecuador net seconds before the break when a Costly header rebounded off the post into the path of Jerry Bengtson, but it was disallowed -- apparently for a hand ball. The second half was far less frenzied than the opening 45 minutes and Valencias winner came in the 65th minute when he out-jumped the Honduras defence to head home a left-sided free kick from Walter Ayovi. "These are goals in the World Cup, this is something you dream of when you are a young kid and thank God that this dream is becoming a reality," said Valencia. Hassan Whiteside Jersey.com) - The Utah Jazz look to put an end to their five-game losing streak when the Denver Nuggets visit Salt Lake City Monday night. Josh Richardson Jersey .

CHICAGO -- The pitch was just a tick up, and Starlin Castro was ready. Texans Jerseys Online . When Edwin Jackson was limited to five innings, the bullpen took over. Pedro Alvarezs drive fell short on the warning track. These are fun days for the improving Chicago Cubs. Castro hit a three-run homer and Jackson finally got the better of Charlie Morton, leading the Cubs to a 6-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. "This is the nicest Ive felt about this team since Ive been here," said Anthony Rizzo, who was acquired in a January 2012 trade with San Diego. Chris Coghlan added a solo shot as the Cubs opened a 10-game homestand with their fourth win in five games. Last-place Chicago also improved to 18-13 since May 17 for the best record in the NL in that stretch. "Everything in this game is contagious, whether its positive, negative, hitting, defence, pitching," Coghlan said. "I think were having more team at-bats." Jackson (5-7) was removed after 86 pitches due to cramps in his calves, but it was enough to get his first win in four matchups this year against Morton (4-8). The right-handers have faced off more than any other pair of starting pitchers this season in the majors. Jackson allowed three runs on Jordy Mercers fifth homer and five hits. He struck out eight and walked two in just his second win in his last six starts. Alvarez had a chance to tie the game when he came to the plate with two on and two out in the sixth. He took a frustrated hop between first and second as Ryan Sweeney ran down his long fly ball in the biggest part of the ballpark. Andrew McCutchen struck out with two on in the seventh, wasting another Pittsburgh threat. "Pitchings been pretty great all year. The offence is coming around, and the defence is coming around as well," Jackson said. "So were definitely showing a glimpse of what were able to do. Its just going out and doing it on a consistent basis." Pittsburgh rookie Gregory Polanco opened the game with a single to centre, extending his hitting streak to 10 games. He is the first NL player to begin his career with such a streak since Juan Pierres 16-game run for Colorado in 2000. The Pirates have lost four of five since a four-game winning streak. Morton retired six in a row before Jacksons one-out single in the third started a string of five consecutive batters reaching safely. Rizzo lined a two-run double into the right-field corner before Castro drove an 0-2 curveball over the wall in left for his 11th homer, moving past his total from all of last year. Morton jerked his head down in disgust when Castro connected, and then turned around to see where the ball was going. Castros third homer of the season against Morton gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead. "I could have gotten the ball down a little bit more," Morton said. "I dont think it was a bad pitch. It was a bad pitch to him in that situation." The six runs in six innings were a season high for Morton, who had won each of his last three starts and was 4-1 with a 2.40 ERA in his previous five outings. Mercer went deep after Jackson walked the first two batters in the fifth, but that was it for the Pirates. Four Cubs relievers combined for three innings of two-hit ball before Hector Rondon worked the ninth for his eighth save in 10 chances. Jason Grilli pitched the eighth for the Pirates in his first outing since manager Clint Hurdle removed the right-hander from the closer role. Grilli has blown four save opportunities this season after converting 33 of 35 chances a year ago. "Better rhythm, a better execution of pitches," Hurdle said when asked about Grillis inning.

SEATTLE -- Washington middle linebacker Azeem Victor is expected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery for a broken lower right leg, coach Chris Petersen announced Monday, the second major injury loss for the Huskies defense in recent weeks. cheap jerseys .There is no timeline yet for Victors recovery but the expectation is the junior wont be back this season. Petersen was noncommittal when asked if there was any chance Victor could recover in time for a bowl game.Its OK. Its not going to be a real long-term thing, Petersen said. Its a bone and those things will heal quickly. I dont know exactly what the timeline is but its probably as good as it could be in terms of all those things.Victor was injured in the second quarter of No. 7 Washingtons 26-13 loss to Southern California on Saturday. Victor was in on the tackle of USCs Justin Davis on a running play, but immediately came up hobbling. He was on the field for several minutes getting tended to by medical personnel, who put an air cast on Victors leg on the field before he was taken off on a cart.Victor leads Washington with 68 tackles this season. He was regarded as a potential second-day pick in the NFL draft if he left after his junior season.So really when it was all said and done it was probably more positive than we were first thinking, Petersen said. Sometimes when you go into surgery and all that its all this kind of stuff but it was pretty straightforward from what I understand.Its the second major loss for the Huskies on that side of the ball after sack leader Joe Mathis underwent surgery earlier this month for a foot injury. Mathis is also expected to be out for the season, although The Seattle Times reported last week that Mathis is hopeful of possibly being able to return for a bowl game.Petersen joked Monday that no team other than Alabama could have the depth on the roster to withstand losing two top defensive players and not have any drop off.I dont know if anyone does that. Maybe Alabama. I dont know, he said. I think every coach in America, for the most part, you get a really good player, you lose them, you might have a really good young player but theyre just not there. I dont know if you ever get there.Redshirt freshman D.J. Beavers is listed as the starter with Victor out. Beavers stepped in after Victors injury on Saturday and finished with six tackles. But he also had some of his inexperience exposed by USC.Linebacker is one area where Washington still lacks experienced depth. Along with Beavers, the other options appear to be freshman Brandon Wellington and sophomore Ben Burr-Kirven.I think he filled in pretty well, Petersen said of Beavers. He made some tackles, played aggressive, played tough. Its hard when you lose a player like Azeem for sure but its not like `We have no chance type thing. He was right there playing physical like a linebacker should. Hes had a lot of good reps throughout the season and now hes going to have a lot more.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org nfl jerseys china .

CHICAGO -- New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault felt so good about Antti Raantas return to Chicago that he kept Henrik Lundqvist on the bench for the second straight night. cheap jerseys .Turned out quite well for Vigneault and company.Raanta made 26 saves against his former team, Nick Holden scored 55 seconds into overtime and the Rangers blanked the Blackhawks 1-0 on Friday.It was great to come here and play, Raanta said. A little nervous, but it was a good thing it ended like this.Derek Stepan passed from the boards to a streaking Holden in the middle of the ice, and he beat Scott Darling on the stick side for his fourth goal of the season. Darling was going for his second straight shutout while subbing for injured starter Corey Crawford, but he had to settle for a season-high 36 stops in another solid performance.Raantas played great, made some big saves, Darling said. I wish I could redo that one in overtime.Raanta made his NHL debut with Chicago in 2013 and was teammates with Darling for one season before he was traded to New York. He improved to 15-0-3 in 20 career appearances at the United Center.The 27-year-old Raanta had 17 saves in Thursdays 2-1 victory at Winnipeg, and Vigneault opted to give him a second straight start because of his recent play and his success in Chicago.Any team in this league, the way it is now, needs two goaltenders to be able to have success, Vigneault said, and were very fortunate that we have two goaltenders that can do a good job for us.Antti came up real big back to back and its good for our team and very good for him also.Marian Hossa appeared to have the go-ahead goal for the Blackhawks when he shot it between the legs of Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh and Raanta 6 minutes into the third. But Vigneault challenged the play and it was waived off when a replay review showed Hossa was offside.Thats a tough one. I wasnt even noticing it was close to offside, but with todays technology and this new rule, its a game of inches, Hossa said. They created this new rule and we have to deal with it, but its frustrating, because the league wants to increase scoring and now I think more goals are disallowed because of this one.The Blackhawks played without defenseman Brent Seabrook, who was sidelined by an upper-body injury. Captain Jonathan Toews missed his eighth straight game with an upper-body injury, and Crawford missed his fourth in a row after he had an emergency appendectomy last weekend.New York forward Rick Nash was sidelined for the second straight game by an upper-body injury. Nash is tied for second on the Rangers with 11 goals.While each team was missing some star power due to injuries, Raanta and Darling put on quite a show.Raanta made a great glove save on Patrick Kanes one-timer early in the first and had a dazzling stop on Richard Paniks wide-open look in the middle in the second. The 6-foot-6 Darling made a couple terrific saves in rapid succession in the second, denying Stepan on the doorstep before getting over to knock away Jesper Fasts prime opportunity on a 2-on-1.Raanta got some help in the third when Mats Zuccarello swept a loose puck away from the goal line with 2:20 left.Game notes It was Raantas first shutout of the season and No. 5 for his career. ...

Brett Kimmorley lavishes praise on two of the NRLs biggest names as he wraps up another busy round of action in the latest edition of Set of Six. Juventus Moise Kean Jersey.Warriors let supporters down...againThere was a couple of sides at the weekend that had everything to play for, but their attitude and mindset were way off. One team, for which that comes as little surprise, was the Warriors. They had so much to play for, were playing at home and had been playing some good footy, yet they went to the break down 31-6.But thats just where the Warriors are at as a football side and why you can never tip them with any great confidence. They proved to us at the weekend that they can still break your heart even when you think they may have just nailed down a winning formula. It must be pure hell for their fans.Dragons, Bunnies finally find some attackSomething that was great to see was a couple of sides playing some football, and by that I mean ad-lib football. St George Illawarra, on the back of having three of their better players return from injury, went out and threw the ball around and came up with 32 points. It was a local derby against the Sharks which sometimes means the form guide goes out the window, but the Dragons actually played a really good style of football that was nice to watch for a change.I think they only scored above 20 points four times last year, so it was good to see them produce some quality attack. Souths, meanwhile, were a different side with Adam Reynolds running game on song. The Bunnies also played a little bit more ad-lib football, and I think Damian Cook changes the side a lot due to the fact hes an active dummy-half and can draw in some defenders. The other big change was Greg Inglis move back to fullback; they just got the balance of their spine correct. So it made for a nice change watching both the Dragons and Bunnies this weekend.Bulldogs are the gurus of Golden PointThe Bulldogs continue to get it done in Golden Point. Again, it looked like they were beaten in the last 10 minutes against Manly on Thursday night; they looked shot. But as soon as it goes to Golden Point, they just seem to have this knack of being able to get away with the win.I think theyve had 12 Golden Point games over the last couple of seasons of which theyve won nine, while another one ended in a draw. Thats a pretty good record. Youve got to give a lot of credit to Des Hasler for that record; theyre such a well-drilled side who can handle the pressure. And they obviously know how to work towards a Golden Point win - thats a good skill to have as we get edge closer to the semi-finals.Just run the ball, AnthonyAfter an extended period of below-par performances, Broncos five-eighth Anthony Milford is well and truly back to form. Brisbane have been a shadow of the side that started the season so well recently, but they finally rediscovered that kind of footy against the Eels.It was pretty simple really; it was Milford running the football. There was no magic switch or piece of rocket science to the Broncos ball-playing, they just backed Milford to run the ball and it paid off big time. They scored some nice tries and it seemed like he had more energy about him and just wanted to get the ball in his hands.So that was a nice sign if youre a Brisbane fan and it looks like they might have got out of their rut at just the right time.Top four looks all but certainWhile we still have Canberras clash with Melbourne to come on Monday night, Im going to say that the top four looks like its settled. If the Raiders win on Monday night there will be a five-point gap between team four and team five, and with the top-four being such an important finish in our game - due to the second chance it gives you - we may well have our genuine premiership hopes before us.It certainly looks like the top four is all but sorted to me, and I guess that just leaves the others to fight it out for positions five through eight to see whos going to finish where.Hayne Plane delivers in Sydneys westTwo sell-out crowds and two amazing atmospheres: how good is it having Jarryd Hayne back in the NRL? That looked like a sensational afternoon in Campbelltown on Saturday. Obviously hes probably not where he needs to be fitness-wise to play fullback just yet, but regardless he is still a very special football player.To see what he did last week after being out of the game for 18 months, and to back it up this weekend, at five-eighth, is just extraordinary. Defensively, his edge looks so controlled and then nailing that field goal with seven seconds left just goes to show the reason why we love having him back in the NRL.He is a very special football player, and on the back of that the Titans are set for some ride - one they hope will end with a trip to the semi-finals. Wholesale Juventus Jerseys . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge. Juventus Blaise Matuidi Jersey .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. http://www.cheapjuventusjersey.com/?tag=juventus-leonardo-bonucci-jersey . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. A month after starting his record-breaking AFL career at Geelong, all Corey Enright wanted to do was end it.The teenager from Kimba, the SA country town halfway between Perth and Sydney, had a bad case of homesickness.So his parents Garry and Maxine flew to Victoria in the summer of 1999-2000 and met Cats officials, including senior coach Mark Thompson.They were very, very concerned that he was homesick and wasnt going to last in Geelong, Thompson told AAP.They were prepared to take him home - and Im so glad they didnt.I was nervous and I just remember begging them to give us a bit more time.I was confident hed be okay and wed be good enough to get him through that period.Thompson credits ex-Cats player Paul Brown, then working at the club in player welfare, for helping Enright settle at Geelong.He (Brown) was the guy who got close to him, made the extra effort ... you involve them, you get him included in things to do outside of football training, Thompson said.The meeting between parents and club proved one of the AFLs great sliding-doors moments.Corey would have miissed out, too. Juventus Fan Gear. It was lucky, Thompson said.After some initial struggles with location, injury and form, Enright quickly found his feet.Thompson was stumped when asked to remember the last time he saw Enright play a bad game.Once he got going after a couple of years, it was almost like you had to teach him how to play, and give him the games to play, and then once he learned the game, you didnt have to coach him any more, Thompson saidHe just turned up.He was just easy to coach and a great bloke.You just sit back and enjoy hes a Geelong player, because he was such a good player.Thompson, who coached the Cats to the 2007 and 09 premierships, rated Enright among the best five players during his time at the club.He adds Enright is also easily among the best five people he has met during his decades in the game.Him and his best mate - (Matthew) Scarlett. Both of them are top blokes, Thompson said.Theyre wired the same way, I think. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

GREEN BAY, Wis. Cheap Air Max Australia For Sale . -- A full week of practice could help newly acquired running back Knile Davis get up to speed in the Green Bay Packers injury-depleted backfield.And a swelling-reducing glove may help rookie Don Jackson contribute, too.Davis had a long weekend to study the Packers offensive playbook after arriving in an Oct. 18 trade from Kansas City -- less than 72 hours before the Packers victory over the Chicago Bears last Thursday night. Coach Mike McCarthy was reluctant to play Davis with so little time to learn the schemes, so Davis didnt see action on offense until late in the fourth quarter, carrying twice for 1 yard.Theres definitely some similarities (to Kansas Citys playbook). Ive just got to get the terminology and verbiage together, Davis said. Im definitely excited.McCarthy said Davis spent the weekend working with running backs coach Ben Sirmans to get a better feel for the offense entering Sundays game at Atlanta.Hes part of the game plan, McCarthy said of Davis. I like what he brings to the table. Hes a natural football player, someone thats played a lot of football, was successful obviously in college, and hes been in the league. I think this is just more of a language and communication gap that you have to fill. Hes very bright. Hes making progress.Jackson, meanwhile, took part in Wednesdays practice after X-rays did not show a fracture in his left hand, which he injured against Chicago. In an effort to reduce swelling, Jackson wore a special therapeutic glove throughout practice and was able to carry the ball with both hands -- something he couldnt do after the injury occurred.Its already looking better, Jackson said. The trainers, theyre pretty optimistic about it. Weve still got (four) days, so weve still got some time. And its already taken, I think, a dramatic leap from Sunday till now. I couldnt even like have anybody touch it, and now its to the point where I can move it a little bit, I have a little bit of grip.Still, McCarthy said Jackson must take part in Thursdays contact-filled, in-pads practice to gauge how realistic it is for him to play against the Falcons.Its important for him to go through team work, especially (Thursday). He needs to go through the half-line drill and the full physical team, McCarthy said. That will obviously give us direction on how we proceed Sunday.If the Packers have both Davis and Jackson at their disposal against the Falcons, they wont have to rely as heavily on Aaron Rodgers. He threw 56 passes -- five fewer than his single-game career high -- and finished with a career-best 39 completions against the Bears.It would also allow McCarthy to pick and choose how he uses receiver-turned-halfback Ty Montgomery, who carried nine times for 60 yards and caught 10 passes for another 66 yards against the Bears.The Packers are in such dire straits at running back because they lost starter Eddie Lacy for at least eight weeks (ankle/foot). Green Bay has been without No. 2 running back James Starks because of a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 16. Its unclear how soon hell return.(Montgomery) and Don spent some extra time with me the night before (the Bears game) talking about different things, and Im sure that will happen this week. Maybe well get Knile in on it as well this time to make sure hes ready to go, Rodgers said. Weve got to go with the guys weve got and make sure theyre ready to play.Game notes Despite their mini-bye after their Thursday night victory, the Packers had a whopping nine players on their injury report. In addition to the players not expected to play against Atlanta -- Starks, tight end Jared Cook (ankle) and cornerbacks Damarious Randall (groin) and Quinten Rollins (groin) -- three other players were slight surprises: linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring), wide receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Montgomery (illness). . Matthews did not practice Wednesday and apparently injured his hamstring against the Bears. Montgomery spoke with reporters after practice and is expected to play, while Cobb was a limited participant. . The Packers added rookie center Jacob Flores to the practice squad. He spent the offseason and training camp with the Packers after signing with the team, but was cut at the end of camp.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Clearance Air Max Australia Store . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. Authentic Air Max Australia Shoes .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. http://www.airmaxaustraliacheap.com/ . The recently retired Stern was elected Friday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined with the class of 2014 on Aug. Junior lightweight titleholder Jose Pedraza, who was granted an exception from his mandatory defense, will face flashy Floyd Mayweather protégé Gervonta Davis on Jan. 14, the promoters told ESPN on Monday night.Pedraza-Davis will be part of a Showtime-televised card headlined by the previously announced super middleweight world title unification fight between Badou Jack (20-1-2, 12 KOs) and James DeGale (23-1, 14 KOs) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.The site is locked in only if co-promoters Mayweather Promotions and DiBella Entertainment can secure an insurance policy approved by the New York State Athletic Commission that conforms to the recently implemented law that changed insurance standards for combat sports in the state. So far, there is no policy available to boxing promoters to buy so they can put on a boxing card in New York, which has not hosted a professional boxing event since Aug. 21.Pedraza (22-0, 12 KOs), 27, of Puerto Rico, will be making the third defense of his 130-pound world title since he won the vacant belt by one-sided decision against Andrey Klimov in June 2015.I think its a helluva fight, very dangerous, but its a fight Pedraza wanted, promoter Lou DiBella said. Davis has been screaming and yelling that he wanted a big fight, and he got what he wanted.In order to make the fight, Pedraza had to secure an exception from the IBF allowing him to fight Davis rather than his mandatory challenger, Englands Liam Walsh (21-0, 14 KOs), who became the mandatory by beating Klimov by near-shutout decision on Oct. 8.Davis (16-0, 15 KOs), 22, of Baltimore, is an exceptionally fast and hard-hitting rising prospect who will be taking a huge step up in competition. Nike Air Max Australia Outlet. . Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said he and Mayweather believe he is ready.We feel very, very confident that Gervonta is going to win the fight, and we think that hes going to do it in spectacular fashion, Ellerbe said. Its a tremendous opportunity, and hes ready to step up and seize the moment. This is something me and Floyd have been working on for some time.Ellerbe initially tried to make a deal for Davis to challenge titleholder Jason Sosa for his version of the title, but that deal fell apart, so they pursued Pedraza.We tried to make the Sosa fight, but it didnt happen for a number of reasons, Ellerbe said. Were excited to work with Lou. We have a tremendous card Jan. 14, and this fight is just part of it. Gervonta is a straight killer. Hes a very good boxer, but hes also a tremendous puncher. Hell go into the fight fully prepared, and we expect him to bring that IBF championship home.The card will mark the first time that Mayweather Promotions, which also represents Jack, will be promoting in New York, a place Mayweather never fought as an active boxer.Floyd has been wanting to bring a big event to New York and invade New York, Ellerbe said. Mayweather Promotions invades New York. Its something weve been working on. Were very confident that everything will be worked out [with regard to the insurance issue]. Lou and his team have worked extremely hard, and Floyd has been very adamant that he wants to do anything in his power to make this happen. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
