COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Texas A&M began the second half of its Southeastern Conference schedule with a 25-20, 25-18, 25-19 victory over South Carolina today at the Carolina Volleyball Center.It was the eighth victory over the last nine matches for the Aggies, who improve to 14-7 overall and 8-2 in SEC matches. South Carolina falls to 15-7, including 3-7 in SEC play.Texas A&M All-American and redshirt senior middle blocker Jazzmin Babers tied for match-high honors with 12 kills while hitting .524 as the Aggies outhit the Gamecocks, .317 to .167 for the match. Junior outside hitter Kiara McGee pitched in 11 kills while hitting at a .320 clip, and freshman outside hitter Hollann Hans also reached double-figure kills with 10 while junior setter Stephanie Aiple distributed 34 assists.Sophomore middle blocker Kaitlyn Blake, who leads the SEC in blocks per set, led the Aggies with four blocks, and Babers added three to give her 449 block assists for her career and move her within seven block assists of the school all-time career record of 456 held by Cindy Lothspeich (1994-97).Senior defensive specialist Victoria Arenas took match-high honors in digs with 16, and junior libero Amy Nettles had eight digs, putting her within 18 of the 1,000-career digs milestone.Texas A&M led the first set from start to finish, building its largest advantage at 16-8 following back-to-back errors by the Gamecocks. South Carolina, which was outhit .433 to .297 in the frame, later used a 3-0 run to get within 20-17 before McGee caromed a kill off the block to thwart the Gamecocks rally. The teams began to trade points before McGee put down her fifth kill and Babers and Aiple followed with a block to put the Aggies at set point. South Carolina got a kill to stave off one set point before Babers attack near the right-side pin ricocheted off the Gamecocks block for the set-ending kill.South Carolina took its first lead of the match by scoring the first two points to begin the second set. Aiple later set up McGee and Babers for back-to-back kills that gave A&M the lead, 4-3, and the Aggies would never trail for the remainder of the set. South Carolina tied the score at 4- and 5-all before A&M went on a 6-1 run to go up, 11-6. The Gamecocks then scored three unanswered points to get within 11-9 before Hans ended the rally with a kill, marking the start of a 5-0 spurt by the Aggies. South Carolina never got closer than five points for the reminder of the set and trailed 20-14 when McGee and Hans posted back-to-back kills, and sophomore defensive specialist Amy Houser followed with her second of a career-high three aces in the match to put A&M up, 23-14. The Aggies took their largest lead on the next play as South Carolina had an attack error that put Texas A&M at set point, 24-14. The Gamecocks, who were outhit, .306 to .079 in the stanza, made a late rally, fighting off four set points before Hans closed out the set with a kill.The Aggies held an 11-9 lead in the third set when South Carolina gained the momentum, putting down three consecutive kills, including a kill after a lengthy rally to build a 12-10 lead. The home teams momentum quickly fizzled as the Gamecocks served long, and the Aggies took over with Houser stepping to the service line. A&M ran its scoring streak to eight consecutive points, with Babers contributing three kills during the surge. A service error temporarily ended the run, but Hans got a kill off the block to begin a 3-0 run that put the Aggies up, 22-13.The teams traded points, with A&M senior setter Kaysie Shebeneck entering the match for Aiple aand immediately setting up Blake for a kill that gave the Aggies a 23-14 lead. Jerseys NFL Cheap.

South Carolina led in blocks, 9-7, marking the first time in six matches this season that A&M came out victorious despite trailing in blocks.Texas A&M returns home to Reed Arena on Thursday for a rematch against Alabama, which handed the Aggies a 3-2 loss in the SEC season opener in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The match, which begins at 6 p.m., marks the start of a season-high four-match homestand, which also includes contests against Tennessee (Nov. 6), Mississippi State (Nov. 11) and Georgia (Nov. 13).HEAD COACH LAURIE CORBELLI: On getting the sweep to start the second half of the conference schedule...It was really a fun team win. The focus from the beginning was really good. The big concern in this gym has always been our passing, and the team settled in and did a really nice job of passing. I thought the blocking today was really well formed and well timed, and it made our defense behind the block a lot smoother and a lot better. So overall, both from an offensive and defensive standpoints, it was one of our better performances.On getting out of Columbia in 3 sets instead of going 5 sets like A&M has done in the last two visits... I told the team after the match that this is maybe one of the most stressful places I have ever coached in the SEC. It is such a tough place to play, and they play so great at home. I was so relieved that we were able to close it out in three sets. I sat on the bench in the third set thinking Im probably going to cry at the end of this one because Im so relieved. They are ones of those teams that just plays so beautifully at home, and we were able to just contain what we wanted to contain and really get our side going. And we had much better serving than we have had lately, so I do think our serving is getting better.On hosting Alabama, which upset A&M in five sets in the SEC opener... That opening match against Alabama is a sore spot for us, and it is our chance to take another step towards our goal, and it is our chance to get a little bit of revenge, not that revenge is that huge because we know we just have to perform. It will be tough; there is no question. We match up with them really well, but it is always a battle. I think the team sees the goal is a little closer, and I think that the motivation is coming back around from them to being we made it through the rough stretch of the season and we are on the home stretch. They feel lighter. They feel like there is a really strong purpose; it is not as distant. We survived October for the most part, so now to be home, this early November is going to be really fun and really good for us.On starting a four-match homestand in front of the 12th Man It will be nice to have our home crowd know that we will be back in a few nights. We will be returning soon instead of in two weeks. Hopefully we can get some momentum going there, as well as with our fans. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
South Africas inability to reach the final of the tri-series in the Caribbean has once again reopened old debates over the teams inability to deliver under pressure.Josh Jones Youth Jersey . Both Damien Martyn, the former Australia batsman, and Ian Bishop, the former West Indies fast bowler, who commentated on the tournament, pointed to not getting the mental side of things right, while assessing South Africas performances for the television show Inside Edge.Theres great talent there but when it comes to these tournaments, its just not clicking, Martyn observed. Bishop agreed: I dont think its a skill thing. I just think its a mental thing, where something is blocking them in those pressure situations and that has to take some introspection.South Africa are no strangers to self-examination, but have been reluctant to using outside assistance. HD Ackerman, the former South Africa batsman who has worked with A teams, felt there was perhaps a case of the national team hiring a mental conditioning coach.The one member of coaching staff who fails to appear is a psychologist, he said. Everyone is saying there is something mentally not right. Lets not attribute that to this group of players because this is something South Africa have struggled with for a number of years. Maybe we need to appoint a full time guy who will say there are some issues here that need addressing.Ackerman also hinted that lack of confidence and certainty could be the biggest issue behind South Africas problems. Australias young players believe they belong there. Our young players are very unsure when they get into a national side, Ackerman observed. Do I belong here? Why am I here? Who wants me here? There are a lot of unanswered questions for those players rather than them thinking, I belong here. Thats what Australians believe - that they are good enough.Several board insiders have revealed that there is an underlying feeling of uneasiness as players struggle to understand how they fit into a system that has somewhat been thrown into a state of flux because of the countrys transformation policy.Last year, Cricket South Africa signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the countys sports ministry underlining its commitment to transformation, which meant an increase in the number of coloured players across all levels. In the 2015-16 summer, franchises increased their targets to six players of colour, of which at least three had to be black African. While the same policy wasnt outlined at the national level, at least one black African player has been fielded in most matches.Despite that, CSA along with three other federations were banned from bidding for or hosting major tournaments as sanction for the slow progress of transformation. The ministry explained that it expected 60% of national teams to be of colour, which in cricket translates to seven players in an XI. While CSA has not announced any additional targets at any level, it seems evident that they are applying them anyway.South Africa had eight players of colour in their squad of 15 for the tri-series in West Indies. All the players brought into the squad - Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso and Tabraiz Shamsi - were of colour, while those left out from the previous ODI squad - David Wiese, David Miller and Marchant de Lange - were not.Form and merit aside, those included had decent domestic numbers to justify their places and those excluded had been through unremarkable patches.At the domestic level, there has been major shuffling as franchises have looked to balance their squads. The national team is grappling with exactly the same issue. Its not a case of there not being enough players who are good enough - of colour or not - but it is a matter of making sure there are enough players to fulfill every role the team needs while still meeting targets. Its little wonder that with all that to think about, strategies and game plans appear only half-formed.For that reason under-fire coach Russell Domingo may have earned himself a little more time to manage the expectations put on him in both performance and transformation terms. As things stand, Domingo still has 10 months left on his contract and the backing of captain AB de Villiers, even as the public calls for his head.To a degree I agree with AB. Sometimes players need to take responsibility, it cant always be about coaching, Ackerman said, as he provided his idea of when South Africans will know Domingos time is up. Its so difficult for us to sit on the sidelines and say the head coach is at fault. We dont know the instructions that are being given to players within the dressing room and whether they are being followed.If the players arent doing what the coaches are suggesting it would mean that there is a communication breakdown or a relationship breakdown, then it is time to move on. But if its just about execution, then either improve or youve got to get new guys in. And one of those new guys may need to be a psychologist. Kevin King Jersey .

"Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. He may have been axed by NSW for game three but Greg Bird isnt giving up on his State of Origin career.The 31-year-old was the biggest casualty from NSWs loss in game two last month which condemned them to a 10th series defeat in the past 11 years.And while it would seem his dumping by selectors brings down the curtain on his 18-Origin career, Bird himself is holding out hope of a recall in 2017.Youve just got to go out and earn your position back, thats all there is to do, Bird told NRL.com.They have said that theyre going to make a change for younger players to come in but if youre good enough youre old enough - or young enough - so hopefully I can let my footy do the talking next year and fight my way back.Birrd can see a silver lining in his dumping however, ensuring hes physically fresh to help Gold Coasts tilt at a first NRL finals berth since 2010. Kevin King Packers Jersey. The Titans head into this Fridays clash with St George Illawarra just two points behind the eighth-placed Dragons and very much in finals contention.Bird says delivering for his club team is all hes now focused on after his Origin disappointment.Having three matches in 10 days for the first game does knock the body around but having the week off to freshen up, Im really raring to go for the last eight games that are left, he said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Walking out for NXT Takeover: Toronto on Saturday in front of nearly 20,000 people will undoubtedly be the biggest moment of Bobby Roodes professional wrestling career. Chris Godwin Womens Jersey .Its been a bit of whirlwind, he told ESPN by phone when asked for his thoughts on a memorable 2016. But honestly, I wouldnt have it any other way.An 18-year wrestling veteran, Roode spent the bulk of his career as one of the stars of Total Nonstop Action wrestling, alongside the likes of?A.J. Styles, Samoa Joe, Sting, Kurt Angle and a?number of other names recognizable to WWE fans, past and present. At 39, Roode finally got his chance to sign a WWE contract, and in June, he debuted at the Download Festival on NXTs UK Tour.He has since become one of the developmental brands hottest acts.Starting back with WWE over six months ago, its been an amazing experience, he said. Being part of Takeover: Brooklyn was pretty cool, thinking back to my very first match in England. Here I am now, just days away from another Takeover, [and now] Im gonna perform on probably the biggest night of NXT in my hometown at the Air Canada Centre ... Its been great -- better than I ever expected.One of the biggest reasons Roodes popularity has exploded so quickly in NXT is his theme song, a Queen-inspired operatic, prog-rock epic entitled Glorious Domination. It was so universally popular that it went to No. 1 on the iTunes chart in August, after Roodes equally grandiose entrance at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II, where he defeated Andrade Cien Almas.Its been pretty unbelievable that the song has caught fire across the world, he said. Being as experienced as I am and having been in this business as long as I have, any time you can add a layer to your character that gets a fan reaction like the Glorious song, its a huge plus.Im having fun with it. Brooklyn was huge, the first time when it was played, with 15,000 people singing it. Im really looking forward to being in Toronto, where I grew up a fan in the area, where there are some of [the] greatest wrestling fans anywhere in the world. When that song hits on my entrance, Im looking forward to hearing the people of Toronto and just having fun.The moment when he steps out to face Tye Dillinger on the WWE Network live special -- in front of a hometown crowd for both men -- will be all the more incredible, given where Robert Roode Jr. found himself less than 12 months ago.But hes so much more than a theme song. When I briefly met Roode on Jan. 26 in a pub in North London, he was still contracted to TNA. He was signing autographs and taking pictures at a fan event ahead of TNAs UK tour show that weekend at Wembley Arena.He had just turned 39 on New Years Day, so Roode could be forgiven for perhaps thinking the door to WWE was closed.However, as he told me in our interview this week, The one thing Ive learned in sports entertainment is that nothing is for certain, and you never say never. You have to start somewhere in anything you do.There had been hope almost a decade earlier. Roode had impressed at a series of tryouts for WWE back in the early 2000s, appearing on bygone shows such as Jakked, Metal, Sunday Night Heat and Velocity, as well as dark matches before Raw and SmackDown.Thats the goal, right? You want to get a job, get hired, want to be seen, he said. You go do these dark matches, you network and show your face as much as you can.But a contract offer never came. Roode eventually signed with TNA in May 2004, but he never fully gave up hope.I believe in life that everything happens for a reason, he said. The timing back then with WWE didnt work out. It passed me by the first time. But there was a reason for it. I made a name for myself.Sitting alongside him that cold, January evening at Shillibeers Bar and Grill, around the corner from Caledonian Road underground station, was his longtime tag-team partner, James Storm. Together, the duo were known as Beer Money in TNA, and they had just reunited after five years apart.Storm had reportedly been offered a deal by WWE after appearing on two NXT tapings in the winter of 2015, but somewhat surprisingly, he re-signed with TNA, claiming they offered him more money.Beer Money went on to win their sixth TNA world tag team championship after reuniting, but each was an accomplished singles competitor in his own right. Both men held the TNA world heavyweight championship once, with Roodes reign still standing as the longest in TNA history, at 256 days. All in all, Roode won 11 championships in TNA, and Storm won 16.That weekend at Wembley Arena, Roode wrestled Kurt Angle in one of Angles three final matches for TNA on a farewell UK tour named in his honor. On this night, Roode seemed a bit more pensive than Storm.Given his mindset at the time, that was understandable.I enjoyed 12-plus years in TNA, but in the end, I didnt like being there doing what I was doing. That was my issue, Roode said candidly. I needed to get away.In recent months, TNA has become increasingly dogged by financial issues and embroiled in a bitter legal battle over ownership between Dixie Carter and Billy Corgan. Thats a far cry from when the two appeared together at those Wembley tapings.Roode and other TNA talent such as Austin Aries and Eric Young have all since decided it was time to up sticks. All three have found an unexpected home in one of wrestlings hottest brands.I obviously wanted to keep wrestling and stay in the business, Roode said. The opportunity came up with WWE, and its been an incredible experience.Roode made his NXT debut in June in the UK, and it was only a couple months later that Storm announced he was finished with his commitments to TNA. A reunion with Roode in NXT seemed possible, but Storm has stuck to wrestling on the independent circuit. Perhaps the WWE bridge was burned when he spurned them to return to TNA.I have not spoken a word to James since I left in March, Roode said. Im not sure what his plan is. We havent spoken.Roode has also been keen to detach himself from the political machinations going on at TNA.Honestly, I really havent been paying much attention. I know theyre having some trouble there, he said. The way I look at it, the more companies out there, the more work for the guys, the better. I have a lot of friends there, and I want the best for them.One person Roode spoke to before heading to WWE was Styles. It was just two days prior to my brief encounter with Roode in London that his fellow former top guy in TNA debuted in WWE -- to an incredible response.A.J. and I are friends, Roode told ESPN. I speak to him. We stayed in touch for years. You have a core group of people you keep in touch with throughout the business, guys you work with.Such was the impact of Styles entrance at the Royal Rumble that the emcee for that TNA fan event in London joked with those in attendance that the topic was off-limits.As Kurt Angle told me in an interview later that week: If there are people that didnt think the WWE fans knew who A.J. Styles was, then theyre crazy.Styles turned down a WWE developmental deal in 2002, with his wife in college and TNA offering him more money. He spent more than a decade in TNA, where he won the NWA world heavyweight championship three times and the TNA world heavyweight championship twice.In a measure of his ability and connection with the fans, Styles became the first TNA-contracted wrestler to be ranked No. 1 on Pro Wrestling Illustrateds annual PWI 500 list in 2010. When his contract expired in 2014, Styles signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling, and he won the IWGP heavyweight championship in his first match with the company and soon reached an entirely different echelon of popularity as the leader of The Bullet Club.You can always go to other places and become a star. A.J. is a prime example of that, Roode said. He went to Japan and become enormous over there, a world champion. He already had a huge fan base in America and Canada.As excited as Roode was when Styles signed with WWE, he knew better than to expect Styles signing to mean an open door for every former TNA star looking for a shot.I had that confidence in my own ability, but just because A.J. came here and had success didnt mean I would, he said. I was willing to come here, and I got the opportunity.It would be fair to assume Roode has plans to emulate his buddy Styles on the main WWE main roster, but for now, he is more than happy to carry the torch as one of the veterans among the Performance Center rookies at NXT.When I started here, I didnt really have prior plans. I just wanted to be part of WWE, to get the opportunity to show what I can do, he said. Whether I stay in NXT or go to the main roster, at this point, Im just getting my feet wet still. What happens down the road -- who knows?For now, Roode is incredibly excited to perform at a hometown venue that should be packed with the most die-hard of wrestling fans.Crazy things have happened since day one here, he said. I never wouldve been able to tell you, [but] here I am -- days from walking into the Air Canada Centre and performing where I grew up and watched as a fan.Even if this is as big as it gets and a main roster call-up eludes him, Roodes move to NXT can already be classified as a tremendous success, by any measure.Things are unpredictable in this business, but Im extremely happy to be part of NXT, Roode said. I think its the hottest brand under the WWE umbrella. Every show we do is phenomenal. I just love being a part of the locker room. Its incredible. Kendell Beckwith Youth Jersey . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. O. J.

MILAN -- Roma has transformed itself into a team that can win close games. Air Max Tn Plus Womens . The next step is to win what is certain to be a close race for the Serie A title.Roma moved back within four points of league leader Juventus on Monday, beating AC Milan 1-0. A win over Juve on Saturday and then some luck in the final round before the winter break could put Roma in first place to end the year.That would be a welcome change for a team that finished third last season and runner-up in each of the previous two campaigns.Last year, maybe we didnt win these kinds of games, even if we played better, said Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, who scored the lone goal against Milan. But this year we have more character, we have an aim and we want to believe in ourselves.After the match at Juventus, Roma will host Chievo Verona on Dec. 22. Juventus will play at relegation-threatened Crotone on the same day.To get to the top, Roma will need to take some time to rest after the physical encounter against Milan.First of all, we have to recover our strength and try to be even more balanced, because if you make a mistake they (Juventus) will punish you, Roma coach Luciano Spalletti said. In half a situation they will score two goals. I fear Juventus, as everyone does, because it is a very great team.It is Juventus efficiency in front of goal which is proving to be the difference this year.The teams performances have been somewhat below expectations, but Juventus has kept grinding out results with some clinical finishing from Gonzalo Higuain -- the Argentina forward who joined Juventus for an Italian-record 90 million euros ($100 million) after scoring a league-record 36 goals for Napoli last season.Higuain scored two goals to help Juventus beat Torino 3-1 on Sunday, despite the hosts dominating for large periods of the match and wasting several chances. His second came in the 83rd minute, with former Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic adding another in injury time.Juventus does have depth, and that was again demonstrated after Paulo Dybala changed the match when he was brought on in the 71st minute. He helped set up the third goal for Pjanic, who himself had come on as a substitute in the 81st.When you have players like Dybala and Pjanic on the bench, its easy to get the substitutions right, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said.Although Milan trails Juventus by seven points, the team coached by Vincenzo Montella is far from out of the title race.It started quietly, without star names, Spalletti said of his rivals, but Montellas team has talent. Air Max Tn Sale . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Cheap .

He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. CINCINNATI -- Adrian Gonzalez got the most pleasure out of watching his teammates circle the bases. Nobody made as many trips as he did.Gonzalez hit three of the Dodgers seven homers _ driving in a career-high eight runs _ and rookie Corey Seager had a noteworthy homer as well on Monday, leading Los Angeles to an 18-9 victory and a split of its four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds.The NL West leaders enjoyed their biggest home run splurge in 10 years. Theyve won 10 of their last 12 games against Cincinnati.Four of Gonzalezs teammates also homered in the Dodgers biggest power performance since they hit seven during an 11-10 win over San Diego on Sept. 18, 2006.That was fun, he said.Gonzalez started it with a three-run shot in the first inning off Homer Bailey (2-2), who had his worst showing since returning from Tommy John surgery. Gonzalez also had a solo shot in the fifth, when the Dodgers connected four times overall.His three-run shot in the seventh tied his career high for homers. He drove in another run with a groundout as the Dodgers scored 18 runs for the first time in 10 years.The first baseman attributed it to Great American Ball Parks dimensions.Its tiny and the ball flies, Gonzalez said. Right field is short. I hit two fly balls that went out. I could have been 1 for 6 with a homer.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts played left field for the Padres in that game 10 years ago when Los Angeles also hit seven.It feels much better from this side, Roberts said. Yeah, I saw `em. I remember.The Dodgers needed the big game offensively. Left-hander Scott Kazmir lasted a season-low 2 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and four runs. Joey Votto singled home a run off reliever Jesse Chavez (1-0), one of his four RBIs.Kazmir said hes been bothered lately by a stiff right side of his neck. He doesnt want to go on the disabled list. Hell be examined in Los Angeles.Im pretty stubborn, Kazmir said. I can feel like this and get it done. But when youre putting up numbers like that, its tough to swallow.There were homer notes galore:_ Seagers two-run shot gave him 22 homers, trying Glenn Wrights club record for a shortstop from 1930. He tied his career high with four hits and extended his hitting streeak to 13 games. Nike Air Max Plus For Sale. _ The seven homers allowed by Reds pitchers tied the club record._ Andrew Toles and Rob Segedin hit their first career homers back-to-back in the fifth, becoming the first Dodger duo to accomplish that one._ The last time the Dodgers hit four homers in an inning was Sept. 28, 2006, against San Diego.Bailey gave up a season-high six runs and nine hits, leaving after 59 pitches. Chase Utley singled on Baileys first pitch of the game, and Seager singled on the second pitch. Gonzalez homered on the first pitch, leaving him 11 for 25 career against the right-hander with six homers. The homer extended his hitting streak to a season-high 15 games.Were seeing what we expected to see, Reds manager Bryan Price said of Bailey, who has made five starts. Some days, hes electric and sharp. Some days, theres fatigue and achiness and youre not going to have your grade-A stuff.Bud Norris, who started on Friday and lasted 3 2/3 innings, pitched the eighth to help LAs depleted bullpen. He threw 18 pitches, retired two batters, gave up two hits and a walk, and felt some tightness in his back. Reds outfielder Tyler Holt pitched the ninth and retired the three batters he faced.STATSIt was Gonzalezs 21st career multi-homer game. Hes the third Dodger to hit three in a game this season, joining Yasmani Grandal and Seager. ... It was the Dodgers biggest game offensively since a 19-11 win at Colorado in 2006. ... The Reds also gave up seven homers at Colorado on May 31.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: RF Josh Reddick was scratched from the lineup because of a jammed middle finger on his right hand that bothered his throwing. He pinch hit and flied out.Reds: SS Zack Cozart missed a fifth straight game with a sore left Achilles tendon. Price said hell miss at least one more game.UP NEXTDodgers: Ken Maeda (12-7) opens a home series against the Giants. He has won his last four decisions _ in five starts _ with a 3.45 ERA.Reds: Dan Straily (9-6) starts the opener of a two-game series against Texas at Great American Ball Park.

WASHINGTON -- Injured Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg would not be able to pitch in the NL Championship Series if Washington were to advance. Cameron Sutton Steelers Jersey .We know hes not going to be ready for the next series. You know, hes progressing as well as wed like. Its never as fast as youd like, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Thursday before his club hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers in a win-or-go-home Game 5 of their NL Division Series.But again, he wont be available for the next series, Baker continued. It would be a miracle if he was.That doesnt really come as a surprise, given that Strasburg has been sidelined since hurting his pitching elbow in early September and cut short a bullpen session Tuesday.The Nationals knew the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft would have to miss the NLDS, but they had been hoping he might become available if the NL East champions extended their postseason stay.You look at the calendar and just the math doesnt work out. Hes not stretched out and prepared to take on such an important game, general manager Mike Rizzo said about the possibility of an NLCS appearance for Strasburg. Nothings changed. Hes still on his return-to-throw program. Were trying to build him up to see where hes at. Were certainly not going to rush him into doing something that hes incapable of doing.Strasburg threw his first bullpen session from a mound last week, exactly a month after his last regular-season appearance, then stopped another session a few pitches early because of what Baker said was discomfort in Strasburgs elbow.Strasburg famously missed Washingtons trip to the playoffs in 2012, when the club shut him down that September to protect his surgically repaired right elbow. He had Tommy John surgery in August 2011.This season, he started 13-0 with a 2.51 ERA, and in the midst of that stretch signed a $175 million, seven-year contract that begins in 2017. He went on the DL with elbow soreness in August after allowing 19 earned runs in 11 2/3 innings over three outings, then left his first start back in the third inning and hasnt pitched since. Strasburgs final stats: 15-4 with a 3.60 ERA and 183 strikeouts in only 147 2/3 innings. T. J. Watt Jersey .

Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene has been appointed head coach of the Mumbai Indians franchise. Jayawardene will replace former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, whose two-year contract in the role will expire soon. Jayawardenes contract is reportedly for more than one year, but the franchise did not reveal the details.Mahela Jayawardenes appointment has come in the wake of Ricky Ponting - coach for the previous two years - contract coming to a close, the franchise announced in a media release issued on Friday.Jayawardene has played for three franchises in the IPL since the tournaments inception in 2008. He began with Kings XI Punjab (2008-2010), before switching to Kochi Tuskers for one season (2011), followed by two seasons with Delhi Daredevils.After retiring from international cricket in 2015, Jayawardene has featured in T20 leagues around the world, with teams hiring him as a mentor-cum-player. This will be the former Sri Lanka captains first stint as a coach.I am very excited by the appointment and glad that the Mumbai Indians maanagement appreciated my presentation and ideas, Jayawardene said. James Conner Youth Jersey. In what is a new chapter in my career, I will be striving hard to bring them [Mumbai] more on-field success and joy.The franchise did not explain why Pontings contract was not being renewed, and did not reveal whether this decision was taken by the management or Ponting. Having won their second IPL title in 2015, Mumbai failed to make the knockouts, finishing fifth in IPL 2016.Ponting, who retired from all forms of cricket in 2013, was bought by Mumbai for his base price of $400,000 in the IPL 2013 auction. He was appointed captain for that season but stepped down midway through the tournament due to bad form. Mumbai eventually went on to win their first IPL title that season under Pontings replacement, Rohit Sharma.Ponting was appointed in an advisory capacity for the 2014 season and signed a two-year contract as coach the following year. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
The Los Angeles Dodgers are bringing back their reliable closer, agreeing Monday to an $80 million, five-year contract to keep All-Star Kenley Jansen, a person with knowledge of the deal said. Patty Mills Jersey .The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the deal has not been announced. The 29-year-old right-hander had a career-best 47 saves last season for the Dodgers, who won their fourth straight NL West title but lost a six-game NL Championship Series to the eventual World Series champion Chicago Cubs.Jansens contract trails Aroldis Chapmans $86 million, five-year deal with the Yankees last week, while San Francisco added free agent closer Mark Melancon on a $62, four-year contract. Jansen likely ensures the Dodgers payroll will again top $200 million.Los Angeles also was working to re-sign third baseman Justin Turner.At last weeks baseball winter meetings, the Dodgers announced a $48 million, three-year contract with left-hander Rich Hill, acquired from Oakland at the trade deadline Aug. 1. Hill went 12-5 with a 2.12 ERA in 20 starts for the Dodgers and As, including 3-2 with a 1.83 ERA in six starts for Los Angeles.Jansen had a 1.83 ERA with 104 strikeouts over 71 appearances and 68 2/3 innings. He has spent all seven of his big league seasons with Los Angeles, going 19-13 with a 2.20 ERA and 189 saves in 409 appearances. Jimmer Fredette Jersey . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Sean Elliott Spurs Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. http://www.basketballspursshop.com/womens-tiago-splitter-basketball-jersey/ . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies will try to build on their walk-off win Friday night and clinch their series with the San Diego Padres on Saturday.The Rockies scored three runs in the ninth inning against Padres closer Brandon Maurer for an 8-7 victory. The winning hit was a pinch-single off the center-field wall by Daniel Descalso.The veteran infielders playing time has increased dramatically in the wake of shortstop Trevor Storys season-ending thumb injury on July 30. Descalso, who turns 30 next month, is in the final season of a two-year, $3.6 million contract after four full seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals.With St. Louis, Descalso played in 44 postseason games -- 25 more than the Rockies in their history -- including nine World Series games.Hes a winning player, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Thats why we brought him in. One of the few guys in (the clubhouse) thats played in World Series.Descalso hit just .205 with a .607 OPS in 101 games and 185 at-bats last year. But this season, he has made 55 starts and has 206 at-bats in 85 games and is hitting .272 with an .820 OPS. With runners in scoring position this season, Descalso is hitting .415 (22-for-53) with 32 RBI.Descalso said he spent time in the offseason studying the swings of several players, including Josh Donaldson, the reigning Most Valuable Player in the American League, Mookie Betts and former Cardinals teammate Matt Carpenter, and talking with former Cardinals teammate Jon Jay, now a member of the Padres.I just found a swing that I can repeat and that I feel confident in, said Descalso, whose swing is more rhythmic because he begins it after some motion with his hands that he lacked last year. It has just allowed me to simplify my at-bats and just worry about getting good pitches to hit and putting good swings on it instead of worrying about whats wrong with my swing and my timing. Its just put me in a simpler mind set and simpler approach.Jon Gray, who is 9-8 with a 4.69 ERA, will start for the Rockies. He lost his last start on Sept. 10 in San Diego, giving up six runs (five earned) in four innings.Weiss said after that outing, Gray and pitching coach Steve Foster and bullpen coach Darren Holmes worked on some minor mechanical things. Dennis Rodman Jersey. Ots more about timing issues over the rubber, Weiss said. Thats one of the things Jon has to really be in tune with. That affects his slider. When he doesnt have his slider, it makes it tough for him.His sliders a wipeout pitch, but its been inconsistent at times this year. When he has that pitch, everything else kind of falls in place for him and he can be dominant. So, hopefully, we got that rectified.Gray is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA in four starts against the Padres this year, including a June outing at Coors Field where he allowed three runs (one earned) in seven innings. Gray is 6-2 with a 4.82 ERA in 13 starts at Coors Field this season.Edwin Jackson will start for the Padres. Hes 4-5 with a 5.32 ERA in 18 games, including 10 starts.Two starts ago, the well-traveled Jackson, 33, made a mechanical adjustment to the end of his delivery. He then worked seven scoreless innings against Boston on Sept. 5, striking out 11, the most by a Padres pitcher this season, and allowing four hits and two walks while getting the victory in San Diegos 2-1 win.On Sept. 11, Jackson allowed two runs in six innings against the Rockies but wasnt involved in the decision as the Padres lost 3-2 in 10 innings.Padres first baseman Wil Myers hit his 25th homer on Friday, a two-run shot in the first inning. Myers joined Mike Trout as the only major leaguers with at least 25 doubles, 25 homers and 25 stolen bases this year. Myers, who has 26 doubles and 25 stolen bases, is the first Padres first baseman to reach those three milestones.Its something thats definitely pretty cool, Myers said. I definitely didnt have that goal in mind when I started the season. But as I learned more about stealing bases, it kind of became one.Myers also became the third first baseman in major league history to have 25 or more doubles, homers and stolen bases in a season. Jeff Bagwell and Joe Carter are the others. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
