Some of the sports stories The Associated Press is covering Wednesday. Steelers Youth Jerseys . A full Sports Digest will be sent by about 3 p.m. All times EDT:- NEW YORK -- Madison Bumgarner brings his outstanding October resume to the mound when he pitches for the San Francisco Giants in the NL wild-card game against Noah Syndergaard and the New York Mets. The winner moves on to face the Chicago Cubs in a best-of-five Division Series. Game starts 8:09 p.m.- ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Rangers and Blue Jays meet in an ALDS rematch beginning Thursday. When they last played May 15 in Texas, there was a bench-clearing brawl after Rougned Odor punched Jose Bautista, whose game-winning homer in the ALDS clincher last October included that emphatic bat flip.- CLEVELAND -- There are connections in both dugouts in the ALDS series between Boston and Cleveland, but none stronger than for Indians manager Terry Francona, who guided the Red Sox to two World Series titles and beginning Thursday will face them for the first time in October.- WASHINGTON -- Max Scherzer remembers the advice he received before his first playoff start nearly a decade ago -- and it turned out to be terrible advice. Coming off a 20-win season that included a 20-strikeout game, Scherzer will start Game 1 of the NLDS for the Nationals on Friday against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.- Big Papi, Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper and Adrian Beltre are just a few of the offensive stars leading their teams into the postseason. Often, its guys like Adam Kennedy, Cody Ross, Craig Counsell and Marco Scutaro who emerge as October heroes. Heres a Pick 6 of lesser-known players who could shine when the bright lights are on this postseason.- FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- He was allowed to work out with his longtime training guru and threw passes with former Patriots receiver Wes Welker. But he had an abbreviated preseason that included few game reps with new additions like Martellus Bennett and Chris Hogan, or favorite target Rob Gronkowski. After not being allowed to have contact with his coaches or teammates for the past month, just how game-ready is Tom Brady? And how does he go about getting himself up to speed in time for Sundays road game at Cleveland?- CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cam Newton has a concussion, putting his availability for Monday nights game against Tampa Bay in doubt.- One of the true negatives of Thursday night games is seeing key players, often stars, unable to participate because of the short turnaround. That looks like the case this week for the Arizona Cardinals, whose quarterback, Carson Palmer, has been in the NFLs concussion protocol. And with the Cardinals at 1-3, just like their opponent, San Francisco, this is no time to be short-handed.- MIAMI -- Teams all over the Eastern seaboard keep an eye on Hurricane Matthew, with the massive storm set to hit Florida on Thursday and then churn up the coast.- AUSTIN, Texas -- Welcome to the Big 12, where the worst job in college football is being a defensive coordinator. Or maybe its just that the coaches doing the worst job are Big 12 defensive coordinators.- LONDON -- Troubled heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury says he has been bingeing on cocaine and alcohol to deal with manic depression.- VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach are set to speak at the first global conference on faith and sport. Wholesale Steelers Jerseys . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. Steelers Official Jerseys . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. http://www.authenticsteelersshopnfl.com/ . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. When Ramnaresh Sarwan scored an unbeaten 84 on Test debut against a Pakistan attack that included Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Mushtaq Ahmed and Saqlain Mushtaq, many experts were moved to suggest that he would be the next big thing in West Indies batting; Ted Dexter predicted a Test average of more than 50. Over a career that lasted over a decade, Sarwan did extremely well for himself, scoring nearly 12,000 international runs with 20 hundreds, but it is impossible to escape the feeling that West Indies didnt get the full value of Sarwans capabilities. Especially as a Test batsman, where he finished with a career average of 40.01, a good 20% short of where Dexter predicted he would end up.As a Test batsman Sarwan clearly had his moments: his fourth-innings 105 in Antigua helped chase down a record target of 418; his 291 against England in 2009 remains the seventh-highest Test score by a West Indian, and equals Viv Richards highest as well; in the same series he also made two other hundreds - 107 in a win in Kingston, and 106 in Antigua - becoming only the fourth West Indies batsman since 1980 to score three hundreds in a Test series.These, and a few other memorable moments, couldnt hide a tendency to be inconsistent and an inability to string together strong performances. Of the 11 years he played Test cricket, only twice did his average in a calendar year go beyond 50 - in 2004 and 2009 - while seven times it stayed below 40. Of the 31 series in which he played more than one Test, only seven times did he average more than 50, while 12 times he averaged less than 30, and 16 times less than 35. His numbers against specific opposition teams were similarly patchy: he averaged 19.12 from 16 innings in Australia and 17.20 in New Zealand, but 49 in South Africa and 53 in Sri Lanka. (Click here for Sarwans career summary in Tests.)For a batsman of such skill, it is surprising that the last time his Test average topped 45 was after his fifth Test, when he averaged 45.66. That was followed the a horror tour of Australia in 2000-01 when he scored 54 runs in six innings, which sent his career average plummeting into the 20s. It improved gradually thereafter, but never touched the heights it was initially expected to. The fact that he played his last Test at the age of 31 - an age when batsmen are usually at their prime - is further evidence of unrealised potential. Among the 15 West Indies batsmen who have scored 4000-plus Test runs, Sarwans average sits second from bottom, with only fellow Guyanese Carl Hooper - another batsman who massively underachieved in Tests - being the only one with a poorer average. Among the 29 batsmen who scored 5000-plus Test runs between 2000 and 2011 - the period of Sarwans Test career - his average is the lowest. Steelers Stitched Jerseys. In ODIs, though, Sarwan finished with highly impressive numbers, averaging a healthy 42.67 from 181 games, at a strike rate of more than 75. While most top-order batsmen tend to have higher averages in Tests than in ODIs, for Sarwan it has worked the other way. For most of the 2000s, he was a mainstay in the West Indian batting line-up, consistently scoring runs from Nos. 3 or 4: between 2001 and 2011, he was West Indies third-highest run-getter in ODIs with 5624, an at average of 43.59; only Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul scored more runs. During that period, he was also joint second for West Indies in terms of Man-of-the-Match awards with 12, next only to Gayles 20. If Sarwans Test numbers are slightly underwhelming, his stats in ODIs compare favourably with West Indies best. Viv Richards is obviously far ahead of anyone else because of the era in which he achieved a strike rate of 90, but among the 15 batsmen with 2500-plus ODI runs Sarwans career average of 42.67 is third highest, next only to Richards and Gordon Greenidge. Unlike in Tests, where Sarwan shone in spurts, in ODIs there were long periods when he performed consistently. Between 2002 and 2008 his numbers compared favourably with the best during that period: among the batsmen with 4000-plus runs during this period, his average of 44.85 was sixth, but it was less than two runs shy of Jacques Kallis top-of-the-table average of 46.60. Ten of his 12 match awards came during this period. Seventy-nine times in his ODI career Sarwan finished on the winning team, and in those games he averaged 62.06, which is marginally higher than Laras 61.82 in 139 wins. Among the 84 batsmen who have scored 2500-plus runs in ODI wins, only five - MS Dhoni, Hashim Amla, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Michael Bevan - have averaged more. Sarwan mostly batted at Nos. 3 and 4 in ODIs, but he achieved far more success at two-down, averaging 54.21 and scoring four of his five ODI hundreds in 55 innings at that slot. He batted 82 times at No. 3 but never scored a century from that position. His numbers at four are terrific. Among the 31 batsmen who have scored 2000-plus runs at that slot, only Bevan (59.60) has a higher average.At his best Sarwan combined efficient technique with elegant strokeplay all round the wicket, but unfortunately for West Indies cricket, he faded away far too early. A few more years of an in-form Sarwan would have been perfect for a line-up that has struggled to find its feet over the last few years.
