WASHINGTON -- The surprises keep coming from first-year Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Morgan Moses Jersey .First, it was a National League Division Series that included three catchers. Now comes news that rookie Andrew Toles will start in left field in the opening game of the series Friday against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park.Is he starting? Clayton Kershaw asked at his regular pre-start news conference Thursday. Thats awesome.The conversation was brief between Toles and Roberts.Youre in left field tomorrow, like he normally says, Toles said of the interaction when Roberts told him the news.Starts against right-handed pitchers have become commonplace for Toles over the past six weeks, so with Max Scherzer on the mound for the Nationals on Friday, Toles was somewhat expecting the assignment.It felt pretty good [to hear it], Toles said. I just want to stay focused and go out there and do my best really.He was out of baseball last year, when he was released by the Tampa Bay Rays organization, but Toles story has been one of resilience. He was signed by the Dodgers in 2015 after the minor league season had ended and was not invited to big league camp this spring. He started the season at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and was in Los Angeles by the start of July. He played 22 games at Rancho Cucamonga, 43 at Double-A Tulsa and 17 at Triple-A Oklahoma City before the Dodgers called him up to the major leagues.Never fazed by the situation, or so it seemed, Toles gave the Dodgers steady production. He supplied a rare dose of speed on the bases and added a plus-throwing arm into the proceedings. If a deficiency showed, it was with defense, other than throwing the ball.Toles had a pair of three-hit games this season, the first in his 10th career game. He was batting .397 in his first 58 at-bats through the end of August and then cooled a bit in September. He ended August with a pinch-hit grand slam that gave the Dodgers a victory in the second game of a doubleheader at Colorado when it seemed as if the team would be swept in the twinbill.I mean, to be honest, I didnt even know we had a guy named Andrew Toles in the minor leagues, Kershaw said. To meet him and understand where hes been and come from, and the type of guy he is, the type of player he is, its pretty special to see for sure.Toles batted .213 in 47 at-bats in September and dealt with a sore wrist as the regular season came to a close. He had just eight at-bats on the final road trip, after the team had clinched the division.Roberts did not specify any other part of the Game 1 lineup, only saying, Its going to look a lot like weve done it.Considering that the Nationals will have right-hander Scherzer on the mound, the lineup sounds like this:?Yasmani Grandal at catcher, and an infield of Adrian Gonzalez at first base, Chase Utley at second, Corey Seager at shortstop and Justin Turner at third. In addition to Toles in the outfield, Joc Pederson is expected to play center field, with Josh Reddick likely in right field. Kershaw will pitch.Seager and Toles are two of seven rookies on the Dodgers NLDS roster; a number of injuries forced the club to give others a chance this season. Many of those young players made the best of their opportunities, and Toles was one of them.We all feel like were a part of the team, Toles said. We said it in the meeting the other day. Its going to take all 25 of us to win a world championship. I feel personally, me and all the other rookies, we dont feel like rookies. Were just a part of the team. Preston Smith Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. Charley Taylor Jersey . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. http://www.redskinsrookiesproshop.com/ryan-anderson-redskins-jersey/ .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. Complaints about earthworks at Eagle Farm racecourse have come to a head with trainer Robert Heathcote scratching short-priced favourite Oberland to protect punters.Oberland would have been odds-on in a race at the Sunshine Coast on Friday night but Heathcote feared the horse would not perform to his best because of the noise from earthworks next door to his Eagle Farm stables.First starter Takarakka was also withdrawn from a maiden at Heathcotes request.Heathcote took the unusual step when another of his horses Poetic Show, a short-priced favourite, struggled into fourth place at the Ipswich meeting early on Friday.The five-time Brisbane premier trainer started the season in great fashion with 40 winners but since November has had just four winners from his past 50 runners.Heathcote said while all stables went through slumps his had started the day the earthworks began.I was willing to take it on the chin. Butt Poetic Shows run was the last straw. Brandon Scherff Jersey. She did exactly what all my horses have been doing - racing flat, Heathcote said.I have an obligation to the punters to present my horses in the best possible fashion to win. Especially when they are going to be odds-on.The simple fact is there was a din beside my stables all day and the horses were agitated. It takes plenty out of them. You try resting with a huge noise about 15 metres away.Heathcote said the works had stopped for the Christmas break and he hoped would move away in the New Year.The earthworks have nothing to do with the infield stabling which has been idle since the tragic death of two workers in October.Trainers were expecting to be in the new stabling this week but there is no indication when it will be finished.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Steve Yzerman Jersey . -- The Atlanta Falcons have signed cornerback Robert Alford, a second-round pick from Southeastern Louisiana.

James Allison has left his role as Ferrari technical director with immediate effect, ending weeks of speculation about his future. Dennis Schroder Jersey .Allison re-joined Ferrari mid-way through 2013 and helped contribute to its turnaround last year, which saw it claim three wins and finish second behind Mercedes. However, the team has failed to build on that success this season and is yet to win in 11 races despite high expectations of a title challenge coming into the season.Allisons departure was confirmed on Wednesday morning with a statement saying the two parties jointly decided to part ways.?Team boss Maurizio Arrivabene said: The team would like to thank James for his commitment and sacrifice during the time spent together, and wishes him success and serenity for his future endeavors.Allisons 2016 season has been tinged with tragedy, with his wife dying suddenly after the Australian Grand Prix. He spent several races away from the paddock afterwards and reports in Italy had suggested he wanted to spend more time with his family in Britain.Speaking on his departure, the Briton said: During the years I spent at Ferrari, at two different stages and covering different roles, I could get to know and appreciate the value of the team and of the people, women and men, which are part of it. I want to thank them all for the great professional and human experience we shared. I wish everybody a happy future with lots of success.Mattia Binotto will take on the role of chief technical officer at the team, moving across from the engine department.

DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars are looking for consistency when they host the New York Rangers on Thursday at American Airlines Center.The Stars (12-13-6) play the second contest of a five-game homestand, one which coach Lindy Ruff said could define the struggling teams season. The Stars opened the homestand with a 6-2 victory against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.Its important. We all realize where were at in the standings and how weve been playing to start the year, Stars captain Jamie Benn said. We see this homestand as a big one for us. Like you said, it could be make or break and we want to be making something of this. We got one tonight and well regroup and get ready for the next one.The Stars scored five goals in a span of six minutes, 43 seconds against the Ducks, and goalie Antti Niemi made 34 saves to improve to 6-1-1 at home. The Finnish goalie was playing for the first time in five games, and said getting a quick start was important for his confidence.Against Anaheim, Niemi made several key saves in the first period, including a stop on a 3-on-1 and a stop on a breakaway on the same shift.The Rangers (20-10-1) have been riding Antti Raantas hot hand and the back-up goalie made four consecutive starts. He won three straight games and posted back-to-back shutouts before the Rangers lost to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday 2-1.While Raanta played well in the loss, Henrik Lundqvist will likely start against the Stars and Raanta said hes well aware the Swede is the Rangers starter.Its special when you can steal starts froom Hank, Raanta said on Tuesday. Salomon Speedcross 3 CS. No matter who starts in goal, the Rangers rely on one of the NHLs best offenses this season. New York scored a league-best 106 goals through 31 games, and 14 players have at least 12 points, including leading-scorer J.T. Miller with 22.Miller has been one of the NHLs breakout stars this season. He had 43 points in 82 games last season and is on pace to set a career high in his third professional season.The Stars led the NHL in goals last season, but have yet to find the offensive spark on a consistent basis. Theyve scored 11 goals in their last two home games, but scored only three goals during back-to-back road losses sandwiched in between the victories.Ruff is hopeful his lineup will build off the win against Anaheim, and the Stars should be better as injured players return to form. Jiri Hudler had his first point of the season against the Ducks, while defenseman Johnny Oduya played his second game after returning from injury and had an assist.The Stars will also have Jamie Oleksiak back as a lineup option against the Rangers. The 6-foot-7 defenseman was suspended two games for a hit to the head on Philadelphias Chris VandeVelde on Saturday.Oleksiak had been playing some of his best hockey this season before the suspension. While Oleksiak has only played in 13 of the Stars first 31 games, Ruff said his play recently dictated he should be in the lineup.

LAS VEGAS -- Andre Ward, the new No. Adidas Mike Bossy Jersey . 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world?He made a case -- but not a convincing one -- as he won a razor-close but controversial unanimous decision against Sergey Kovalev to claim three light heavyweight world title belts before an adoring crowd of 13,310 on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena.All three judges scored the bout 114-113 for Ward, who survived a second-round knockdown and some shaky moments. ESPN.com scored the fight 115-112 for Kovalev, who appeared to land the much more powerful punches. HBOs unofficial scorer, Hall of Fame judge Harold Lederman, had Kovalev winning 116-111.?Many media members sitting ringside also had Kovalev winning.If judges Glenn Trowbridge and John McKaie had given Kovalev the final round, the fight would have been a split decision win for Kovalev. Judge Burt Clements gave Kovalev the 12th round but had Ward ahead going into the round.This is a beautiful thing. We did it, baby. Its a lot of hardware, Ward said as he was presented with the belts. Surreal. This is what we set out to do. Im a five-[belt] world champion in two different weight classes. Man, its amazing.This sounds good -- the new light heavyweight champ. This was my most important and satisfying win.There were many who believed that the Kovalev-Ward winner would be worthy of replacing junior bantamweight titlist Roman Chocolatito Gonzalez as the new pound-for-pound king. And some might elevate Ward into that lofty perch coming off the best victory of his career, which already includes wins against such top opponents as Carl Froch, Mikkel Kessler and Chad Dawson.Ward said he was not startled that he got the nod.I was not surprised when I heard the decision, he said. I dont know where you got that from. I know it was a close fight. The crowd, you can hear they thought I won.[Kovalev] did everything I expected him to do. He started to show up as I expected. He started to fight like I expected. My coach [Virgil Hunter] did a great job.Kovalev, who was making his ninth title defense, strongly disagreed with the scoring.Its the wrong decision. I dont want to say my opinion, he said. The witnesses are here. They saw it. Its my job. It was a fight of my life. I am disappointed in the judges decision.[Ward] got maybe a few rounds. I agree with that. I kept control. I lost maybe three rounds the whole fight. It is the USA and all the judges were from the USA. Its a sport. Dont make it politics. Its a sport, and I won the fight.Main Events promoter Kathy Duva, Kovalevs promoter, also was not happy with the decision.My impression was that was the wrong decision, she said. We thought he was clearly ahead on points. I think Ward could have a great career in the UFC. I havent seen so much wrestling since Conor McGregor in the UFC card last week.Ward did initiate many clinches, and referee Robert Byrd did little to stop it, allowing the fighters to work their way out of it.I thought for sure it was not going to be a one-way fight, but the wrestling was outrageous, Duva said. The referee didnt do anything about it, and Im really upset. [Kovalev] won the first six rounds, and he had a knockdown. How the hell did he lose a decision??Ward will likely have to face Kovalev in a rematch. Duva said her side would exercise its right to an immediate rematch.Were going to get him back in the ring as soon as we can and right this wrong, Duva said.Kovalev agreed.Of course, I want a rematch, and I will kick his ass, Kovalev said. I want to show good boxing.Michael Yormark of Roc Nation Sports, Wards promoter, said it was too soon to talk about a sequel and declined to acknowledge the rematch clause.Its too early to discuss a rematch at this point, Yormark said. Andre will enjoy the moment, spend time with his family and, obviously, embrace those three belts. Well decide where we go from here over the next weeks.Ward offered his take.Of course, I would do a rematch, Ward said. I am not going to negotiate a fight right now. I will go home and relax and see whats next.Ward, a 2004 U.S. Olympic gold medalist, got off to a very rough start, as Kovalev appeared to hurt him midway through the opening round with a stiff left jab that forced Ward to grab on to him around the waist.Ward (31-0, 15 KOs) had blood coming from his right nostril early in the second round. Then a left hand and a right drove him into the ropes. Moments later, Kovalev connected with a booming right hand to the forehead, and Ward went down to all fours. It was only the second time in Wards career he had been knocked down. Ward made it out of the round but looked a bit shaky and tried to hold Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KOs) in the third round.When Kovalev, who earned $2 million but stands to earn much more because of his percentage of the promotion, got rough in response to Ward holding him, Byrd warned them to knock it off.I knew it was going to be a tough fight, Ward said of the knockdown. I think after the second-round knockdown, he realized I wasnt going anywhere and I was stepping on the gas. Technically, theres always stuff I can pick apart. I wasnt happy about that knockdown, but I didnt panic. I was at peace. Now its time to really get to work. I wasnt hurt by it. As a matter of fact, I wasnt hurt by anything he threw.Byrd was busy throughout the fight, breaking hard clinches -- many of which were initiated by Ward?as he tried to come inside and avoid Kovalevs big punches.The great speed and slickness of Ward was not very evident, as Kovalev popped him with jabs and right hands. Ward got off some good shots, but Kovalev walked right through them. But whatever speed and defense Ward lacked, he showed immense toughness and guile under a constant assault from Krusher Kovalev, known as one of boxings most devastating punchers.Your last fight is always the most important, but I really needed this, said Ward, who has not lost a fight since he was a 13-year-old amateur. It was about those in-the-trenches moments. Sergey has no inside game, so I focused on my midrange and my inside game, and that made all the difference.Ward, who earned a career-high $5 million, had a strong seventh round. He landed a clean stiff jab that got Kovalevs attention and excited the crowd. Moments later, both fighters were warned by Byrd for hitting behind the head while in a clinch. And even though Kovalev landed a hard left hand late in the round, Ward, 32, of Oakland, California, returned fire.There was a lot of back-and-forth action in the ninth round, but Ward had some big moments, lashing Kovalev, 33, a Russia native living in Los Angeles, with shots that sent him ducking under the top ring rope and brought the crowd to its feet.They continued to go at each other in the 10th round. Ward landed a good left hand that backed Kovalev up, and Ward stuffed a left jab down the middle that connected cleanly. It was an exciting round that was hard to score.The 11th round was another close one, with Kovalev landing a hard jab and right hand but Ward coming right back with a solid left hook. Kovalev had Ward on the run in the final seconds of the round.Sensing the decision victory might be up for grabs in the 12th round, the boxers responded with toe-to-toe action and rough stuff on the inside during clinches. They did not let up until the final bell, and then they fell into an embrace when it was over.This is a good feeling, Hunter said. We were a little careless with that knockdown in the second round, but we landed the cleaner punches. Kovalev was aggressive but not effective. Thats why we won. Im happy for Andre.According to CompuBox punch statistics, Kovalev landed 126 of 474 punches (27 percent), and while Ward threw and landed fewer punches (116 of 337) than Kovalev, Ward landed at a higher percentage (34 percent).Ward, who unified super middleweight world titles by rolling through the 2009 to 2011 Super Six World Boxing Classic, was fighting his first top opponent since a dominant 2012 knockout of then-light heavyweight champion Dawson, who dropped down in weight to challenge him. Ward had some long layoffs in the ensuing years because of injuries and a battle over his promotional contract, but he signed with Roc Nation Sports in 2015 and was fighting for the fourth time since then.But Ward, already a probable Hall of Famer even before the win against Kovalev, shied away from lauding himself.Its hard for me to call myself great, he said. At the end of the day, I am a two-weight division champion. Adidas Thomas Greiss Jersey .

BENSALEM, Pa. NFL Jerseys Outlet . -- The 12-horse field that went postward in the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing on Saturday was comprised of horses at varying stages of their careers.Nyquist and Exaggerator had won on the biggest nationals stages. Gun Runner and Cupid had won important races but not at this level of competition. Others were in search of their first graded scores.Connect fell into the latter group, but when the dust cleared he had not only padded his resume but had done it in a style which suggests we will be seeing him in major races from here on in.Owned by Paul Pompa Jr. and trained by Chad Brown, Connect was making only his sixth career start. He had finished a well-beaten sixth in the Travers, his graded stakes debut, but had come out of that race ill.He had a pretty significant lung infection, Brown said by phone from Belmont Park. We cleaned that up and he came back to form today.Connect was given a ground-saving ride in the 1-1/8-mile Pennsylvania Derby by Javier Castellano, and held off Gun Runner through the final furlong to win by a half-length. It was four lengths back to Wild About Deb in third.Awesome Slew hopped out to a clear early lead in the $1.25 million Derby with Cupid galloping along behind him, several lengths ahead of Nyquist, who was third, and Gun Runner, in fourth.The fractions were a realistic 23.01 seconds, 47.35, and 1:11.81.On the far turn, Cupid began to flatten out while Nyquist made a three-wide move after Awesome Slew. Gun Runner commenced his bid four wide and Connect was making progress along the inside.Entering the stretch, Nyquist challenged for the lead while Connect made a quick move and slipped through inside horses. He had the lead at the furlong pole with Gun Runner challenging from the center of the track. They stayed that way to the wire.I was confident in the stretch, Castellano said. I had a lot of horse and didnt think the other horse was going to get by.Connect paid $23.20 as fifth choice in the race. His final time was 1:50.20.Nyquist couldnt sustain his drive in the stretch and came out on the wrong end of a four-horse photo for third, finishing sixth.He was in a perfect spot, trainer Doug ONeill said. Mario [Gutierrez] said he was kind of struggling with the track but he had a good trip and we have no excuses. Well take him home and talk about what we should do next.Exaggerator made a move outside horses nearing the far turn but never reached contention and finished seventh, seven lengths behind Nyquist. Awesome Slew held on for fourth and Cupid dropped back to eighth.Connect, a son of Curlin, is now 4 for 6 in his career. After losing his career debut at Aqueduct last December, he won three races in a row - a Belmont maiden race in May, a Belmont allowance in June, and the restricted Curlin Stakes early in the Saratoga meet.The Travers is the only race where he hasnt fired, Brown said. We have always have had a lot of confidence in this horse. Im proud of him. I mean I wouldnt have gone in predicting that we would win against Gun Runner and Nyquist. Those are very tough horses. But Im not surprised either.Brown said he did not have any immediate plans for Connect, as he had been focusing solely on this race.Id like to give credit to my team and also to Mr. Pompa, who once we got him healthy wanted to run in this race, Brown said. He has always been a horse that catches the eye. Hes a big, well-bred horse. Hes really easy to like. He had his day today. Wholesale China Jerseys . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Cheap NFL Jerseys .

ATLANTA -- Edwin Jackson felt great in the bullpen before making his eighth start for San Diego.It all fell apart in the third inning.I felt pretty good and it didnt transition over into the game, Jackson said. Its just one of those things where it takes one game and you bounce back. You have a streak of good games and you have a streak of bad games.Jackson gave up five runs in the third and the Padres were no match for Atlanta Braves starter Julio Teheran in a 7-3 loss on Tuesday night.Command -- he just didnt have it today, San Diego manager Andy Green said. He started to try to pitch backwards maybe a little bit too late.Jackson (3-5) allowed seven hits, five runs and three walks in 2 2/3 innings. The 14-year veteran, pitching for his 11th team, has a 6.26 ERA with the Padres and has given up 18 earned runs in his last 11 2/3 innings.Coming out of the bullpen, I had no clue the game would be like it was tonight, Jackson said. I felt pretty good and it didnt transition over into the game.Teheran won for the first time in 10 starts and rookie Dansby Swanson drove in three runs for Atlanta.Teheran began the night with the lowest run support in the major leagues, but the two-time All-Star used a rare offensive outburst by Atlanta to earn his first home victory since last Oct. 2, a span of 14 starts.Interim manager Brian Snitker appreciated Teherans steady demeanor during the long drought, particularly in not complaining when his teammates couldnt score runs.The Braves averaged just 2.9 runs of support in Teherans first 23 starts.Its unbelievable, Snitker said. Hes one of those pros. Hes our guy that people look to. I like those guys that pitch every inning as their single, little entity. Hes trying to win that inning.The Braves, who rank last in runs, used six hits to take a 5-0 lead off journeyman Edwin Jackson in a five-ruun third. Cheap Jerseys Online. Adonis Garcia, Freddie Freeman, Jace Peterson and Swanson had RBI singles. Tyler Flowers added a sacrifice fly.Teheran (4-9) allowed six hits and two runs and struck out eight in seven innings. The Braves ace returned from the disabled list two weeks ago after missing 26 games with a right lat strain. He gave up nine runs in 11 innings over his last two starts.Swanson, the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, had a two-run double in the fifth off Carlos Villanueva to put the Braves up 7-2.Teheran was coming off his worst start of the season when he allowed 11 hits and six runs in six innings of a no decision at Arizona last Wednesday.His only mistake was a fastball that Oswaldo Arcia hit for his first homer with San Diego, and seventh overall, to cut the lead to 5-2 in the fourth.A couple of games I didnt have my best stuff, but I battled and Ive been working in the bullpen like I was at the beginning of the year, Teheran said. Im glad I did today what I could.The Braves improved to 20-44 at home, worst in the majors.ON THE RUNTravis Jankowski easily stole his 29th base in the fifth, dropping catcher Flowers to 1 for 41 in caught-stealing attempts.ROSTER MOVESThe Braves recalled RHPs Shae Simmons and John Gant from Triple-A Gwinnett, placing RHP Arodys Vizcaino on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation and optioning RHP Brandon Cunniff to Gwinnett.TRAINERS ROOMPadres C Christian Bethancourt left after the top of the third inning with a left intercostal strain. ...

United of Major League Soccer. United chose the defender in the second round of the 2013 MLS re-entry draft. http://www.cheapairjordan-shoes.com/ . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. The biggest defensive star in the Lone Star state is out. Thats a void for the Houston Texans as big as, well, J.J. Watts persona.In the mediocre AFC South, which Houston (2-1) leads, losing its best player could bring the defending division champion back to the field -- as uninspiring as the Titans, Colts and Jaguars might be.With the Texans coming off a no-show at New England, visiting Tennessee could be feeling pretty frisky about its chances Sunday.Im very disappointed about that, says Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan, who would have matched up a lot with Watt.Ive said before if you want to be the best youve got to go against the best. I want to be the best left tackle in this league. I want the opportunity to go against all the best guys.Houstons best on D for now will have to be Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus.Jadeveon is playing awesome, Whitney, Lewan adds. So a lot of those guys, theyre going to give me all theyve got. Ive got to come with my `A game for sure.The Texans didnt even bring their `D game to Foxborough in prime time . That 27-0 rout was more of an `F.And now, no J.J.When you have that kind of ability and that kind of playmaking its hard to replace with one guy, Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel notes. So were going to ask all the guys on defense to pick it up, to put a little extra in it and see if we can gain some of those plays that J.J. used to make.The action began Thursday night with Cincinnatis 22-7 home victory over Miami. A.J. Green had 10 catches for 173 yards and a touchdown, and the Bengals (3-1) were inspired by linebacker Vontaze Burficts return from a suspension.During the first three quarters, Green had 166 yards on catches while Miami (1-3) had 152 total yards.Burfict was suspended by the NFL for the first three games because of his illegal hits. The linebacker knocked down a pass and had three tackles.Philadelphia (3-0) and Green Bay (2-1) have the first byes of the season.Indianapolis (1-2) vs. Jacksonville (0-3) at LondonThe Jaguars make their annual trip to Wembley, and you have to wonder if Londoners would like to see the agreement with Jacksonville voided.A loss in this early kickoff (9:30 a.m. EDT) could push Jags coach Gus Bradley closer to the edge of unemployment, what with higher expectations the team (and owner Shahid Khan) had entering the schedule.Indianapolis has won six of the past seven in this series and has swept the Jaguars six times since becoming division foes in 2002. Frank Gore needs 88 yards rushing to pass Hall of Famer Marcus Allen (12,243), Colts rushing leader Edgerrin James (12,246), Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk (12,279) and Hall of Famer Jim Brown (12,312) to become No. 9 on the NFL career list.Buffalo (1-2) at New England (3-0)While most everyone obsesses over the QB situation in Foxborough, the fact is New Englands defense and running game have turned downright nasty. In their final game before Tom Brady returns, the Patriots get their, uh, patsies: Buffalo has lost eight of the past nine meetings.Bills coach Rex Ryan gets more pleasure out of beating New England than any other opponent. If the Bills dont find a passing game or clamp down on opposing passers, theyre unlikely to find success.Denver (3-0) at Tampa Bay (1-2)Most everyone already believed in the Von Miller-led Denver defense. Now its quarterback Trevor Siemian making folks turn their heads and shout praise. Its a somewhat manufactured statistic, but still, Siemian became the first quarterback to throw for 300 yards and four touchdowns without an interception in his first road start, a win at Cincinnati.Few teams have been as inconsistent as Tampa Bay, and facing that mighty D without your best running back, Doug Martin, is a major obstacle.New York Giants (2-1) at Minnesota (3-0), Monday nightTwo things the Giants swore theyd improved over 2015 was an ability to finish, and their overall defense. In last weeks loss to Washington, they fell short in both areas, and they were wildly undisciplined. Yes, Ben McAdoos Giants looked eerily similar to the final version of Tom Coughlins Giants.Now they visit the Vikings, whose defense could give the Broncos a challenge as best in show. Minnesota doesnt do much with the ball, but can stop just about anyones run or pass game.Oakland (2-1) at Baltimore (3-0)The Ravens are one of the NFLs most pleasant surprises so far, in part because theyre relatively healthy after an epidemic of injuries in 2015. Their defense isnt reminiscent of the Ray Lewis-led units, which doesnt diminish its strong performances one bit.Oaklands work on D, meanwhile, has been as bad as anyones, and now the Raiders make their third long-distance trip in four weeks. Retro Jordan Shoes For Sale. .Kansas City (2-1) at Pittsburgh (2-1)The Chiefs have lost all three visits to Heinz Field, last winning in the Steel City in 1986. If they can force eight turnovers again like they did against the Jets last weekend, that string of failure will end.Coming off their worst loss in 17 years -- that 34-3 phlop in Philly -- at least the Steelers get back star running back LeVeon Bell from a three-game suspension. But the running game was not a problem with DeAngelo Williams in for Bell.The two-back system would work here, but Bell is so dynamic when he plays the game I dont want him to come off the field, Williams says.Carolina (1-2) at Atlanta (2-1)With the other three members of the NFC South owning losing records, the Falcons could put themselves in great shape with a win over the divisions three-time defending champ. Also remember that Atlanta was 6-1 in 2015 and wound up 8-8.Carolina, of course, was 15-1 a year ago and went to the Super Bowl. If the Panthers dont protect Cam Newton better -- hes been sacked 12 times and hit plenty more -- another such trip is unlikely. So is a win in the ATL.Los Angeles (2-1) at Arizona (1-2)Two teams that once represented St. Louis meet in an important early NFC West matchup. The Cardinals are tough at home, but the Rams beat them in Arizona last season, and after struggling for two games, their offense came alive in a win over Tampa Bay.Arizona must beat the habit of starting slowly; the Cardinals havent scored in the first quarter yet. One good idea might be feeding star receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He has more receptions (153) and TDs (16) against the Rams than against any other franchise.Seattle (2-1) at New York Jets (1-2)Pete Carroll has a dilemma. Given the knee injury to Russell Wilson and the prospect of a bye next week, does the Seahawks coach sit his star quarterback and hope the running game and defense can sneak out of the Meadowlands with a win?One of many things that could make Jets fans shudder is having to take on Seattles aggressive, physical defense a week after Ryan Fitzpatrick was intercepted six times by Kansas City.Seattle is still definitely up there when you think or talk about the defense in this league, Fitzpatrick says. Theyve probably been the standard for the longest, its a lot of the same guys, same scheme and its tough.Cleveland (0-3) at Washington (1-2)So the Browns hire a substitute kicker when the regular guy goes down in practice. That replacement, Cody Parkey, misses three field goals, including a potential winner on the final play of regulation.The Giants handed Washington a win last week, and the Redskins could be undermanned. They finished that contest minus two starters in the secondary and two on the offensive line, losing DB DeAngelo Hall and C Kory Lichtensteiger to injured reserve.Dallas (2-1) at San Francisco (1-2)A lot of silly questions arising in Big D about, uh, Big D -- as in Dak. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has impressed while Tony Romo is sidelined, making Cowboys fans surmise the team is better off keeping him in the lineup when Romo is ready. Lets see how Prescott fares against a solid defense, which he has yet to face.And he wont this week, either.Ive been very impressed with him, 49ers coach Chip Kelly says. I think not only his athletic ability, but his poise and kind of sense of calm that he has about him in terms of playing the game. It doesnt seem like its happening too fast for him and hes done a great job in the first three games.New Orleans (0-3) at San Diego (1-2)Despite some key injuries, the Chargers havent looked too bad. Now they get to face their former QB, record-setting Drew Brees.Brees began his career in San Diego in 2001, left for Saints after 2005. This will be Brees first game at Qualcomm Stadium since suffering a right shoulder injury trying to recover his fumble in the 2005 finale. Brees became a free agent, signing with New Orleans, while Philip Rivers became the Chargers starter. Brees has led Saints to victories over San Diego in London in 2008 and New Orleans in 2012.Detroit (1-2) at Chicago (0-3)Once a great rivalry, theres not much to recommend in this one.Detroit has won six straight in the series, but could be short-handed with DL Ezekiel Ansah (left ankle) and LB DeAndre Levy (quadriceps) hobbling. Marvin Jones, the NFLs leading receiver, had a career-high 205 yards and two TDs last week in a loss to Green Bay.Bears QB Jay Cutler (sprained right thumb) sat out last weeks loss to Dallas.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL 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 ' ' '

CHANDIGARH -- Heavy rains on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning have cast a spell of doubt over the India- Korea Group I Davis Cup tie that gets underway in Chandigarh on Friday. With the forecast suggesting thunderstorms over the next couple of days, the teams have only but prayers on their mind.?In the instance of further rains, theres a provision for the tie to be extended by a day, which will see two singles rubbers and a doubles rubber on the same day. India would be hoping to wrap up the tie and march towards the World Group playoff.One of the sub-plots to watch out for in the tie will be the chemistry between Rohan Bopanna and Leander Paes. The duo will be playing for India at the Rio Olympics and this will be their only competitive match together before the Games. Bopanna in fact had asked to be paired with Saketh Myneni for Rio, who is also part of the Davis Cup team, but his request was turned down. The relationship between Bopanna and Paes has been the subject of much speculation but during practice they put up a cordial front.The duo of Paes and Bopanna is scheduled to play Hong Chung and Yun Seong Chan on Saturday with the reverse singles slated on Sunday.On grass the game is always more technical and I think we have an advantage.

Though they arrived more than a week ago to accustom themselves with the conditions, the Koreans concede that grass continues to be a challenging surface.We are not used to playing on grass courts which is why we came early.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Brian Orakpo Jersey . -- Perhaps it simply took a whirlwind trip to the White House for the Kansas City Royals to remember that theyre the reigning World Series champions.Danny Duffy scattered four hits while pitching into the seventh inning, the Royals scratched out three runs off the Rangers Yu Darvish, and Kansas City shrugged off a sluggish start to the second half to beat Texas 3-1 on Friday night in the opener of their three-game series.I think being around the guys on an off day was a positive, said Duffy, who along with the rest of the Royals slipped out of town to see President Barack Obama in the midst of a long homestand. We got to do something not a lot of people get to do.The Royals had dropped four of six since the All-Star break before Friday night, when Duffy (6-1) gave up only Rougned Odors homer in the fourth inning. The left-hander struck out four, walked two and gave his bullpen a breather on a steamy evening that began with a heat index of 108 degrees.Luke Hochevar wiggled out of Duffys jam to end the seventh, Kelvin Herrera pitched a perfect eighth and Wade Davis worked around a two-out single in the ninth for his 21st save.The victory kept the Royals (48-47) from dropping below .500 for the first time since May 17.Duffys got a big fastball with a quality changeup and breaking ball. He was really tough on us, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. A quality start, a quality starter, hes been doing that all year.Darvish (2-2) nearly matched Duffy in his third start off the disabled list. He allowed single runs in each of the first three innings, struck out 11 and made only one big mistake -- Cheslor Cuthberts home run.I feel really good about where Yu is at and what he showed us tonight, Banister said.Still, it wasnt good enough to keep the AL West-leading Rangers from losing for the eighth time in nine games. The slide has been marked by poor pitching, inconsistent hitting and a series of devastating injuries -- sluggers Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo went on the DL earlier this week.Without them, the Rangers certainly struggled to create scoring chances Friday night.Duffy carved through the lineup without allowing a hit the first time through, the only baserunner a walk to Elvis Andrus. He went on to load the bases on a single and hit batter in the third inning, but Duffy calmly struck out Ian Desmond on three pitches to leave them stranded.His only other trouble came when he put runners on the corners with two outs in the seventh, forcing Hochevar in from the bullpen. He got pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland on a liner to preserve a 3-1 lead.They built it in typical Royals fashion: They scored a run in the first on a single, stolen base, error and groundout then scored again in the second on a walk, stolen base and consecutive singles.It wasnt until Cuthbert went deep leading off the third that they made Darvish look fallible.Darvish is a really good pitcher, Royals manager Ned Yost said. To scratch out two runs early is perfect situational baseball, to give us that lead early.ROSTER MOVESThe Rangers reinstated LHP Jake Diekman (cut left index finger) from the DL and designated LHP Cesar Ramos for assignment. Diekman last pitched July 5 at Boston.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: Fielder will see neck specialist Dr. Drew Dossett on Monday. The DH/1B is facing the prospect of season-ending neck surgery after an MRI earlier this week revealed a herniated disk near an area that was repaired two years ago.

Hes been on the DL since June 29. He was pushing it too hard two days ago and just kind of fatigued his leg, Yost said.

LOS ANGELES -- With their bats finally catching up to their pitching, the Los Angeles Dodgers are taking a three-game winning streak and a jolt of confidence into the All-Star break.Everybodys swinging the bat really well, said Howie Kendrick, who had three hits in the Dodgers 3-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.It took us a little while to get it going. (Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez) had a little lull there. (Corey) Seagers been hot all year, but its good to see different guys get it going.Rookie Kenta Maeda (8-6) struck out a career-high 13 over seven innings and held San Diego to a run on two hits, including a solo homer to Derek Norris. He retired 14 of the first 15 batters he faced and struck out six straight near the end of his outing.It seemed like everything played off the fastball, catcher Yasmani Grandal said. He was commanding it, and then he was the same ol Kenta, throwing curveballs for strikes, sliders for strikes, good pitches for changeups. But we kept them honest with the fastball.Gonzalez got his first homer in 25 games to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead in the fifth against Christian Friedrich (4-5). Gonzalez has hit safely in five straight games and is batting .455 over his past 12 games.Kendrick extended his hitting streak to seven games. He doubled and scored in the first and drove in the Dodgers second run with line-drive single in the second. He also reached safely on an infield single in the sixth.Corey Seager, voted into the All-Star Game by the players, continued his hot-hitting with an RBI single in the first. The rookie has hit safely in 19 of his last 21 games, batting .366 during the stretch.The Dodgers fought off an anemic offense early in the season to go into the All-Star break a season-high 11 games over .500.For our guys it was just staying focused on winning each game, and not getting focused on what players are hurt, what people are saying about us, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. There were a couple of stretches in there where we could have gone the other way.Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 27th save.For the Padres, the three losses to end the first half left them 18-18 since June 1 and headed into the break needing to regroup.I thought it was just bad baseball, Padres manager Andy Green said. Theres nothing else to say. I thought we weree somewhat listless offensively. Derrick Morgan Jersey. We had opportunities to square up the baseball and didnt.One Padre did, when Norris drove the first pitch he saw from Maeda with one out in the fifth over the left-field wall for his 12th homer.Friedrich lost for the fourth time in five starts, giving up three runs and seven hits over five innings.BULLPEN SESSIONClayton Kershaw threw 25 pitches off a mound before the game and Roberts said there was definitely encouraging progress in the left-handers rehab from a back injury.The Dodgers have not set a timetable for the three-time Cy Young Award winners return.He will not be in the rotation when we come back from the break, Roberts saidFIRST SERVETennis player and Thousand Oaks resident Sam Querrey threw out the games ceremonial first pitch.

Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team. "Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. TAMPA, Fla. -- Doug Martin plowed into the end zone, kissed the ground in celebration and jogged back to the sideline sporting a big smile.The running backs return from a hamstring injury that sidelined him nearly two months meant a lot more to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers than a 16-carry, 33-yard rushing performance against the Chicago Bears suggested.Just happy to be back, Martin said after the Bucs (4-5) stopped a two-game losing streak Sunday with their first home victory in nearly a year. The fifth-year pro missed six games and most of a seventh.It was frustrating, the two-time Pro Bowler added. But I was back and ready to go.With rookie Peyton Barber gaining 38 yards on 12 attempts, Martin wasnt Tampa Bays leading rusher.But just getting him back on the field gave the Bucs an emotional lift and bolstered optimism that the team can turn its season around after a slow start.A healthy Martin rushed for 1,402 yards a year ago, second in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson. He was even more productive as a rookie in 2012, rushing for 1,454 yards and catching 49 passes for 472 to finish with 1,926 yards from scrimmage -- the third-highest total for a first-year player in league history.You just see his presence iin him being out there.

He had not scored since Dec. 27, also against the Bears.There were some points in the game where I felt like I got my old legs back, and theyll come back with more practice, Martin said. I just did a little scout team (last) week and, practicing more, Ill be just fine.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL 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 ' ' '
