We look at five talking points ahead of Irelands Six Nations clash with Scotland on Saturday. http://www.manchesterunitedukshop.com/18-ashley-young-adidas-man-utd-away-long-sleeve-shirt-authentic-royal-blue-men-s-16-17-premier-league-club-soccer-jersey.html . Who needs it more?Before their win over Italy in round four, Scotland were under enormous pressure. Their Six Nations run of defeats were piling up, dating back to 2014. But the relieving win was joined by another, and Cotter is convinced his side is on the verge of realising their potential. Ireland also started the Six Nations on the back foot. The departure of a legendary captain was just one reason the defence of their title would be a difficult one.Although they started well in the opening 20 minutes against Wales in round one, its been a struggle since then. Will Joe Schmidts job be under threat if Ireland lose to Scotland? A loss for Ireland would leave them in second-last place at the end of the tournament, a sharp slide from the previous year. But even worse, six of Irelands next seven internationals are against the top three sides in the world.A three-test tour against South Africa is followed by a friendly against New Zealand in the US before facing the All Blacks once more in the autumn internationals to go with their showdown with Australia in the same series.Bluntly, fifth place in the northern hemisphere is no way to prepare for that many games against the southern hemisphere.Should Scotland win it would likely leave them in third place unless France dismantle England by a sizeable amount, while Ireland could finish fourth - even with a win.Weir ahead of Horne Weir gets the nod ahead of Horne When Finn Russell left the field early against France, his replacement Peter Horne performed brilliantly to steer Scotland to a 29-18 win.However, with Russell still ruled out this week, its Duncan Weir who has been given the nod ahead of Horne. It is by no means a bizarre call given Weirs experience, but does seem slightly harsh on last weeks capable replacement. In announcing his side, Cotter was keen to point out how much of a collective effort Sundays win was: We were pleased with our sustained effort against France.I was happy with the way we adapted to losing Finn so early in the game. The team came together and was rewarded for their endeavour with the end result.Peter played really well when he came on. It wasnt easy for him.He gets himself back on the bench and were hoping hell bring the same contribution whether its 10, 12 or 13 during the game.Attacking 15s Simon Zebo looking to attack for Ireland Stuart Hogg was in superb attacking form against the French, orchestrating the winning try with a flick to Tim Visser, but his defensive capabilities have been called into question in the past.Despite the perceived frailties, Sky Sports Stuart Barnes backed the full-backs credentials in his column this week.The balance of attacking pluses can outweigh the odd defensive negative as Hogg gloriously emphasised, Barnes wrote on Monday.Hoggs opposite number this weekend is no stranger himself to a microscope hovering over his tackling technique.Simon Zebos ability to unlock opposition defences is well documented, but hes not as effective without the ball, which is partly why Rob Kearney is most often preferred ahead of him.This weekends match could see two of the worlds most exciting full-backs with ball in hand go head-to-head, as they bid to prove that scoring tries is the most important element of rugby.Battle up front WP Nel anchors the Scotland scrum It will be a great scrum battle as two in-form front rows come up against each other.Alasdair Dickinson was superb for Scotland against France and really applied the pressure onto Rabah Slimani. Dickinson will be up against Mike Ross on Saturday who has also impressed this campaign.WP Nel may have been bumped off by France full-back Scott Spedding but he has fast become the anchor for Scotlands scrum.He will be up against Jack McGrath who has held off the experience of Cian Healy for the starting loosehead jersey. Both are excellent scrummagers and have good work rates around the paddock too. Nel will also need to be on his game because Healy - no slouch in the scrummaging department himself - will at some stage be thrown into the fray.Tommy ODonnell v John Hardie munsters Tommy ODonnell will have a fierce battle with Hardie Another player who stood out against France was Scotlands John Hardie who stood out in defence and in the breakdown. His 13 tackles against France were the best of the day for Scotland while he was a key man in the turnovers as well.ODonnell gets his chance after Josh van der Flier was ruled out with an injury and it is a chance for him to really stake his claim on the No 7 jersey.Van der Flier has been excellent for Ireland and has proved his worth as an excellent scavenger. Like van der Flier, ODonnell is very much in the mould of the more traditional No 7 and his battle with Hardie at the break down will play a huge role in who wins this game.Ireland: 15 Simon Zebo, 14 Andrew Trimble 13, Jared Payne, 12 Robbie Henshaw, 11 Keith Earls, 10 Johnny Sexton, 9 Conor Murray, 1 Jack McGrath, 2 Rory Best (capt), 3 Mike Ross, 4 Donnacha Ryan, 5 Devin Toner, 6 CJ Stander, 7 Tommy ODonnell, 8 Jamie Heaslip.Replacements: 16 Richardt Strauss, 17 Cian Healy, 18 Nathan White, 19 Ultan Dillane, 20 Rhys Ruddock, 21 Eoin Reddan, 22 Ian Madigan, 23 Fergus McFadden.Scotland: 15 Stuart Hogg, 14 Tommy Seymour, 13 Duncan Taylor, 12 Alex Dunbar, 11 Tim Visser, 10 Duncan Weir, 9 Greig Laidlaw, 1 Alasdair Dickinson, 2 Ross Ford, 3 Willem Nel, 4 Richie Gray, 5 Tim Swinson, 6 John Barclay, 7 John Hardie, 8 Ryan Wilson.Replacements: 16 Stuart McInally, 17 Rory Sutherland, 18 Moray Low, 19 Rob Harley, 20 Josh Strauss, 21 Henry Pyrgos, 22 Peter Horne, 23 Sean Lamont. Marcus Rashford Kit . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. http://www.manchesterunitedukshop.com/9-zlatan-ibrahimovic-adidas-man-utd-away-long-sleeve-shirt-authentic-royal-blue-men-s-16-17-premier-league-club-soccer-jersey.html . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. http://www.manchesterunitedukshop.com/wayne-rooney-man-utd-jersey.html .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit.Calgary Stampeders slotback Nik Lewis appears to be done for the season after suffering an ankle injury in last Saturdays game against the B.C. Lions. "Looks like my season is over, but I will tell u I serve an awesome God . I will grind thru this and if Im able to play late, Ill play," Lewis tweeted Thursday night. "Just to let everyone know what changed was the fact that I tore all the ligaments in my ankle too," the slotback added on Twitter. Calgary Herald writer Vicki Hall originally reported the news on Thursday, stating the 31-year-old is likely done for the year after undergoing surgery. Staamps Head Coach John Hufnagel did not want to be definitive when asked about the injury on Thursday. Manchester United Shirt. When asked about Lewis possible return in 2013, Hufnagel told the Herald: "From the latest report I got, no, its not likely," However, he deferred to the teams medical staff before committing to Lewis being shut down. "I want to make sure I know exactly what Im talking about when I get back to Calgary and talk to the doctors." Lewis has a team-leading 32 receptions for the Stampeders this season totalling 400 yards. He is currently on the nine-game injured reserve list. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

NEW YORK -- Four young pitchers helped the New York Mets reach the World Series last season. Nike Roshe One Blue .Only one has not spent time on the disabled list this season.Noah Syndergaard can be considered the survivor of the young rotation and he will be on the mound Monday night when the Mets open a three-game series with the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field.Syndergaard is 13-8 with a 2.43 ERA to go along with a 1.12 WHIP and 205 strikeouts. Those are similar numbers to what the Mets thought Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Steven Matz might individually provide before injuries derailed the trio.Instead, Harvey was limited to 92 2/3 innings and 17 starts before having thoracic outlet surgery in July.DeGrom was supposed to bookend the top of the rotation with Syndergaard until GM Sandy Alderson announced Saturday he was not pitching the rest of the season because of an ulnar nerve in his elbow, which requires surgery.Matz might return from a strained left shoulder that has kept him sidelined since Aug. 14. Even though he had a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday, its unknown when he will be back.Those three have combined for 373 innings, but none since deGrom pitched five innings on Sept. 1 against Miami. Last year, the quartet combined for 651 1/3 innings during the regular season and postseason.Even without three-fourths of their rotation, the Mets are a game ahead of San Francisco for the first wild-card spot. They have won 20 of 27 after Gabriel Ynoa struck out eight in 4 2/3 innings, Michael Conforto had a two-run single and T.J. Rivera homered in a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.Its a tremendous feeling because Im so proud of the way theyve handled themselves in there because they could have (folded), Collins said. They dont because theyre pros, but at any time when things were really tough, they could have insisted, Oh, Jesus, its not going to happen this year and theyve never done that.I think they realize, theyve played this hard, this long, might as well finish it out. Itd be a tremendous achievement to have that (wild card) game here, but itd be a tremendous achievement to get in.Syndergaard has helped matters by going 3-1 with a 1.06 ERA in his last five starts since a 2-0 win at San Francisco on Aug. 21. He has 34 strikeouts in that span, including 10 on Tuesday at Washington when he pitched seven innings but did not get a decision in a 10-inning win decided by Riveras home run.Atlanta will be second straight last-place team to visit New York after winning a series from a playoff contender. The Twins visited New York after getting two games in Detroit and the Braves are making their trip after taking two of three from Washington.The Braves scored 13 runs in their last two wins after dropping the series opener. In Sundays 6-2 victory, Matt Wisler pitched 5 2/3 innings before the game was called because of rain with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning.We told him, going back isnt a bad thing all the time, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. A lot of guys that have been successful here have had to do it over the years. Its good when they go down, work on things and put it use. We just want him to trust himself, conviction in his pitches. If he can believe in himself the way we believe in him, hes going to be something.The Braves are hoping Snitker might make similar comments about Aaron Blair at some point. Blair takes a 0-6 record and an 8.28 ERA into Monday.He has been on the disabled list since Sept. 3 with a right knee strain and has not pitched since allowing five runs and eight hits in four innings during a 13-4 loss at San Francisco on Aug. 28.Blair made 11 of his 12 starts before the All-Star break. Three of those starts have been against the Mets and the right-hander is 0-2 with an 8.04 ERA in those outings.Besides seeing if Blair can pitch effectively, the Braves will see if Freddie Freeman can keep rolling.Freeman had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 22 games, tying Minnesotas Brian Dozier for the longest active streak in the majors. He is batting .342 (29-for-85) with four homers and 19 RBI since the streak began Aug. 24 and Atlanta is 12-10 in those games, with the last two after his wife gave birth to their first child.Freeman also has reached base in a career-best 38 straight games. It is the longest by an Atlanta player since Chipper Jones had a 41-game streak in 2008.Freeman often hits the Mets well and this year has a .365 average (23-for-63) in 16 games against New York. During Atlantas three-game sweep in New York on June 17-19, he was 7-for-13.The Mets have won seven of nine meetings this season. They won five of the first six, but the Braves completed a three-game sweep on June 17-19 in New York. Nike Roshe One Mens . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. Nike Roshe Flyknit For Sale . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. http://www.rosheone-australia.com/nike-roshe-flyknit-for-sale/nike-roshe-one-flyknit-blue.html . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Indianapolis Colts believe they got the confidence boost so desperately needed after blowing a late lead a week ago.The Tennessee Titans are still searching for answers, angry that they just cant beat their AFC South rival.Andrew Luck threw for 353 yards and three touchdowns, even missing a trio of starters on offense, and the Colts scored the final 14 points Sunday in beating the Titans 34-26.This is big, Colts running back Frank Gore said. Its a division win. I take my hat off to Tennessee. They are a good team, and they play hard. We knew coming in that it was going to be tough, but we had to win. Now we are 3-4, and we are going to move onto Kansas City and try to get a win again next week.Stringing together consecutive wins is something the Colts (3-4) have yet to do this season.The Titans (3-4) thought they had figured out how to do just that themselves with this loss snapping a two-game winning streak.Worse, the Titans now have never beaten Luck in eight games with the Colts winning their 10th straight and 16th in 16 games in this series. Defensive tackle Jurrell Casey was very upset after the latest loss and eager for Thursday nights game with Jacksonville.Me personally, Ive been losing to this guy since college, Casey said of Luck. It hurts me deeply. Ive just got to find a way, and my team just has to find ways to win these close games.Here are some things to know about the Colts latest win over Tennessee:PROTECTING LUCKLuck had been sacked 23 times coming into this game, and the Colts started rookie Joe Haeg at left guard with Jack Mewhort out injured. They allowed only two sacks to a defense that came in fifth in the NFL after piling up six in each of the past two games. That gave Luck time to pick apart the Titans, who had been allowing only 235.5 yards passing per game good for 11th in the league.MARIOTAS BOBBLESMarcus Mariota now is just 2-8 at home with 19 turnovers in those games since being drafted by the Titans. He escaped a pair of would-be turnovers on a game-tying drive. An unnecessary roughness penalty on Josh McNary wiped out an interception by Patrick Robinson late in the third quarter, and then Mariota simply dropped the ball as he turned to hand off before falling on it for a 9-yard loss. Nike Roshe One Hyperfuse. With the Titans trailing 27-23, Mariota was sacked and stripped by T.Y. McGill with Robert Mathis picking the ball up and running 14 yards for the clinching TD. Again, one of those things we have to stop doing, Mularkey said.STREAKING VINATIERIAdam Vinatieri, the 43-year-old kicker, set an NFL record with 43 consecutive made field goals. He came in two shy of the mark of 42 set by former Colts kicker Mike Vanderjagt between 2002 and 2004, and Vinatieri kicked field goals of 28 and 33 yards, the second coming with 3:46 left in the third quarter. Vinatieri said he never concerns himself with personal goals and records, preferring a victory. Im sure Ill sit back some day down the road and enjoy it, Vinatieri said.NEXT MAN UPThe Colts played without starting wide receiver Donte Moncrief, who was replaced by rookie Chester Rogers, and tight end Dwayne Allen. Erik Swoope replaced Allen, but Luck leaned heavily on T.Y. Hilton who caught seven passes for 133 yards, including a 37-yard TD. Tight end Jack Doyle was Lucks second favorite target, catching nine passes and 78 yards and a TD that put the Colts ahead to stay with 1:55 left.SPECIAL TEAM WOESMularkey fired special teams coordinator Bobby April on Oct. 3 after the Titans gave up a punt return for a TD. Special teams cost the Titans four points Sunday with a botched extra point after a kickoff on the opening drive, and Tennessee was beaten in the second quarter when Indianapolis recovered an onside kick. Phillip Supernaw had a chance to recover for Titans and couldnt pull in the ball. The Colts settled for the first of Vinatieris field goals.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-NFLFollow Teresa M.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Kansas City Chiefs were the kings of improv Sunday. Adidas Superstar Nere e bianche .They may have to do it all over again next week after a rugged 30-14 victory at Indianapolis.This weeks biggest concern, of course, will be the status of starting quarterback Alex Smith, who left with a concussion after taking two more hits to the head. He also took several such hits in last weeks victory over New Orleans, and coach Andy Reid felt compelled to explain why Smith returned after he appeared woozy when he left on the games opening possession.If we were at all concerned, we wouldnt have put him back in. Thats the bottom line, Reid said, acknowledging the doctors cleared Smith after determining a cut to the ear left him disoriented.That much was understandable. The second hit might not have been, at least in the eyes of the public.On second-and-2 from their 45-yard line, Smith ran around the left side and slid to the turf as Colts safety Clayton Geathers was closing in. Geathers reached out with both hands and appeared to shove Smiths head into the turf. No penalty was called.The scrutiny that followed came quickly and from all corners of social media.Former Colts linebacker Gary Brackett used his Twitter account to contend the mistake was made by whoever cleared Smith to play. Fans questioned whether Geathers hit was intentionally designed to knock Smith out of the game. Even Smiths wife, Elizabeth, chimed in with her own disgust about the no-calls -- just like last week.These past two weeks have opened my eyes, Elizabeth Smith wrote in the first of a two-part tweet. How many hits does he have to take before a flag is thrown. Funny when some QBs gets tapped flags go flying.After the game , Geathers described the play in detail and insisted the blow was not intentional before going a step further.It was like he wanted to go for a first (down) and then didnt want to go for a first (down). I was just going in for the hit, but then kind of let up and then we went down, Geathers said. I tried just not even touching him. If I did, I apologize.Regardless, the Chiefs dont know the status of three key playmakers: Smith and running backs Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware. Charles stayed home with swelling in his surgically repaired knee and is scheduled to see a doctor Monday. Ware did not play in the second half after being diagnosed with a concussion.That forced Reid to finish the game with his only healthy running back, Charcandrick West, and backup quarterback Nick Foles, who took all but 22 snaps Sunday.Not enough? Kansas City also lost left guard Parker Ehinger in the third quarter with a sprained right knee. Reid did not say how much time Ehinger would miss.So for the time being, the Chiefs will try to survive this injury rash just like they did against the Colts.These things happen, Reid said. It isnt tiddlywinks. Its a pretty violent game, so guys get hurt.(Corrects to Smith taking all but 22 snaps)---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Adidas ZX 700 Uomo .

One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Hopping off the arena rock touring Nitro Circus tour for a fortnight, veteran X Games competitor Blake Bilko Williams will apply his FMX skill set this weekend at the Monster Energy FMX High Rollers contest in Las Vegas, Nevada. With 30 of the worlds finest freestyle motocross competitors prepared to face off for a big prize purse and a chance to compete at X Games Minneapolis 2017, its a new event that has the entire sport humming. FMX High Rollers will feature Freestyle Motocross (FMX), Dirt Shark Biggest Whip and FMX Quarterpipe Big Air, Recently, XGames.com caught up with five-time X Games medalist Bilko on what to expect heading into Vegas.XGames.com: Whats this High Rollers thing all about? Williams: Las Vegas, High Rollers. We basically have a freestyle motocross contest thats a roll of the dice, where the best riders in the world are coming out to compete for a larger purse than X Games has had in a long time. Its going to be the best of the best coming out to roll the dice and put it all on the line for not only a lot of prize money, but a spot in next years X Games.So its also a 2017 X Games qualifier? Yes, correct. Our sport is basically defined by the X Games and major contests and its been a while since there has been a qualifier, so now is the chance for everybody to come out and throw it all on the line. This is it: One shot. And what better place to do it than Vegas?So getting one of those X Games invites would be peace of mind for a guy such as yourself? Yeah, definitely. If you get in that top three and get that guarantee, its quite a weight off your shoulders for the next nine months until X Games roll around.Whats your opinion on the state of the freestyle motocross nation right now? For a while there, it went a little bit stale. We used to have huge courses at the L.A. Coliseum and the Home Depot Center and it kind of lost a little bit of spark. I think this High Rollers contest can be the thing that kick starts it all back off again and really makes it what it used to be and gets everybody really amped and excited. With a new venue next year, I think everybody is excited to not have a small course in an indoor arena for the biggest freestyle contest of the year.What did you think of the FMX event that ran last year at X Games Austin 2016? The track appeared to be small and the jumps were kept to 75-foot single ramps. It was great to have freestyle motocross back as a stepping stone to buildiing a future. Adidas ZX 700 Donna. . The fact that the sport actually did make an appearance again at X Games and the contest went pretty damn well kind of just cemented that freestyle motocross is back and will be on the rise.Who will be the contenders come show time on Saturday? You can see the fire in Clinton Moores eyes. Hes already qualified for the X Games, but hes coming for the big prize purse. Hes flying all the way from Australia because he wants that first prize check. Taka [Higashino], I mean that guy rides every day. Adam Jones has been on Nitro Circus for the last few months doing trick after trick and just blowing everybodys minds. Levi Sherwood, hes been in New Zealand this whole time just flying under the radar. Youve got no idea of what hes been practicing and what hes been doing. He always comes out swinging and hes got the best style and execution in the sport. To win, I think its going to be the guy that makes the least mistakes and executes everything perfectly.How about you? Can you win? I dont know if I can win. I definitely want to put on a good show for the fans. It would be awesome to get a top three. Lets just go there and get out of there in one piece. There are a lot of guys out there with a lot of huge tricks and Im playing catch up a little bit. Well have to see how it goes, but Im definitely aiming for that top three so Im in for next years X Games.Youve been all over the world throughout the last year spreading the FMX gospel. Whats your overall take on the sport and where its at? Are there still a lot of fans who really like it? Is there still some energy out there? There is s till a lot of energy and still a lot of fans who support it. Its just been hard because we havent had a real event to showcase what we can do and what our sport is. I think this High Rollers contest at the Monster Energy Cup will be something to give it a little fire and bring it back. And the X Games are looking good, as well, with a new indoor venue and no restrictions on weather and risk. I think theyre going to go all out and do a proper freestyle course like we used to see. I think all of this is just going to ignite the fire. I think this is all just going to start a new chapter.For exclusive updates, visit Monster Energy or follow along on Monsters Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays placed Canadian third baseman Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a left ankle sprain. Cheap Nike Flyknit Air Max 2015 . The move was backdated to Tuesday, a day after he was injured while sliding into second base in Torontos 9-3 win over the Atlanta Braves at Rogers Centre. Lawrie, from Langley, B.C., stayed in the game after the play but was visibly hobbled while advancing to third base later in the inning and had to be replaced by a pinch-runner. Lawrie is batting .209 this season with five home runs and 14 RBIs. The Blue Jays also formally announced that right-hander Thad Weber was optioned to triple-A Buffalo and right-hander Ramon Ortiz was designated for assignment. The team also recalled right-hander Todd Redmond, selected the contracts of right-hander Neil Wagner and left-hander Juan Perez from the Bisons and designated first baseman Clint Robinson for assignment.

"It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. ELMONT, N.Y. -- Anchor Down does his best work in one-turn-mile races at Belmont Park, something he demonstrated again Saturday with an impressive two-length victory in the Grade 2, $350,000 Kelso Handicap.Taking the lead soon after the start under Javier Castellano, Anchor Down got away with an opening quarter of 23.30 seconds but then picked up the pace, running a half-mile in 45.74, six furlongs in 1:09:05, and a mile in 1:32.90 after turning back an upper-stretch challenge from Tamarkuz.Tamarkuz finshed second by 4-1/2 lengths over Ocean Knight, who was followed by Point Piper and Tommy Macho. Upstart and Baccelo were scratched.Though the Kelso can be used as a prep for the $1 million Breeders Cup Dirt Mile, winning trainer Todd Pletcher indicated that the Grade 1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct on Nov. 26 would be more likely for Anchor Down. The Breeders Cup Dirt Mile is a two-turn race this year at Santa Anita.I tend to think his forte is a one-turn mile, Pletcher said. Well play it by ear, wont rule anything out, but if I had to guess today, wed probably be looking more towards the Cigar Mile.If only the Cigar Mile were at Belmont, where Anchor Down won the WWestchester in May and ran second to the freaky Frosted in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap in the fastest clocking of that races 123-year history. nike roshe one flyknit womens black. The final time of the Kelso was the fastest in seven runnings of that race since it was officially moved to the dirt from the turf. It also was just 0.66 seconds off the track record set by Najran in the 2003 Westchester.Running a mile in 132-and-4 with a son of Tapit with his bottom-side [pedigree] is a big win for him, said Pletcher, who trains Anchor Down for Alto Racing.Anchor Down returned $6 as the 2-1 favorite.Tamarkuz, under Mike Smith, stalked Anchor Down all the way around the track. At the top of the stretch, Smith briefly thought he had a shot to reel in Anchor Down.He just ran a freaky race today, the winner, Smith said. I thought I had a chance to go by him, but I was watching that horses body language and his head, and he still had something left. I said, Im going to have to dig somewhere I didnt have to dig yet to get him, and I couldnt. Not today, anyway. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Bartolo Colon celebrated his 40th birthday a few days early with something hes enjoyed quite a few times over the years: a win over the Texas Rangers. wholesale nfl jerseys . Seth Smith homered and scored three times, Colon pitched seven strong innings for his first victory in nearly a month and the Oakland Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 9-2 on Monday night. Colon, who turns 40 on Friday, gave up two runs on six hits and struck out three. It was the first win for Colon (4-2) since April 23 at Boston, and he joined Bert Blyleven, Dennis Leonard and Jack Morris as the pitchers with the most wins over the Rangers at 19. "I like to pitch here," Colon, who has 175 wins in 16 seasons, said through a translator. "I dont know why." Coco Crisp got three hits, and had the first of three straight Oakland doubles in a four-run fifth inning that broke a 1-1 tie. He scored when Yoenis Cespedes hit a line drive just over Adrian Beltres head with the third baseman playing in, and Cespedes came home on Brandon Moss line drive to the wall in right. Josh Lindblom (0-1) lost in his 2013 debut and first major league start. Lindblom was replaced by left-hander Joseph Ortiz after striking out Josh Donaldson in the fourth. Smith hit an RBI single and went to second when left fielder David Murphy dropped the ball trying to make a throw home. The error allowed Smith to score on a single by Chris Young for a 5-1 Oakland lead. "The first four innings I was able to make pitches and work myself out of jams," Lindblom said. "That fifth inning, I couldnt make the pitch." Smiths opposite-field homer to left for a 1-0 lead in the second was the 13th straight solo homer for the As, tying a franchise record set in 2007. Jed Lowrie had three hits, including one of five doubles for Oakland. The two outs Smith made were with the bases loaded as the As stranded a season-high 15. Texas pitchers walked a season-high eight, although two were intentional. Even Colon had problems with walks -- by his standards. He matched his season total by walking Geovany Soto twice. "Those dont happen too often," As manager Bob Melvin said. Top Texas prospect Jurickson Profar made his first appearance in the majors this year at second base and was immediately put to the test by Crisp, who had infield hits his first two times up despite Profars best efforts. The 20-year-old went far to his left to grab the first one and fielded the next almost behind the bag at second, but Crisp beat the throw both times. Profar drove in both Texas runs without a hit, scoring Soto with a grounder in the third and Mitch Moreland with a sacrifice fly in the fifth. "The first one, we needed a groundball, he got the groundball," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He handled his at-bats well tonight. We scored two runs, he got both of them." With Ian Kinsler on the disabled list because of bruised ribs, Profar is back with the Rangers after homering in his first big league at-bat as a 19-year-old last year. "Im feeling more comfortable in the box and on the field," said Profar, who hit .424 during an eight-game hitting streak that included the first multihomer game of his career before getting called up from Triple-A Round Rock. "It starts from there." Colon was helped by three double plays in the first four innings, including a pair started by Moss at first base when he snagged hard grounders from Lance Berkman and Moreland, stepped on the bag and got the runners trying to go to second. He came out after throwing 95 pitches. "I mean, hes 40 and wed like to try to get him through a season," Melvin said. "So anything over 100 for me is starting to get a little uncomfortable for me. To give us seven, just short of 100, is terrific." Lindblom, who came to Texas as a reliever in the off-season trade that sent franchise hits leader Michael Young to Philadelphia, gave up seven hits and four runs in 4 2-3 innings filling in for Alexi Ogando, whos on the disabled list with right biceps tendinitis. The 25-year-old had 101 relief appearances over two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Phillies but struggled in the Texas bullpen during spring training. The Rangers decided to try him as a starter at Round Rock, where he was 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA. "Fastball command was a little off today," Lindblom said. "I wasnt able to command my heater in and out, which has kind of been my staple all year." NOTES: Rangers C A.J. Pierzynski (strained oblique) was the designated hitter in the final game of a two-game rehabilitation stint at Double-A Frisco on Monday. He went 1 for 3 with a single and is expected back in the Texas lineup Tuesday, when hes eligible to come off the disabled list. ... Athletics RHP Chris Resop cleared waivers and was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. Oakland designated him for assignment Friday. cheap jerseys . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday.

Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. CLEVELAND -- Yan Gomes completed a comeback even he doubted was possible.Given little chance to play in the postseason after breaking his right hand last month, Clevelands catcher made the clubs postseason roster and will play in the American League Division Series against the Boston Red Sox.Its an amazing recovery for Gomes, who was days away from returning to the lineup after missing two months with a separated right shoulder when he was hit was a pitch and broke his hand.Its been a roller coaster of emotions, man, Gomes said Wednesday. I went from sitting in a hospital room with my hand broken, not going to lie, crying my eyes out because Im not going to be part of the team. But then once I got my stuff together, I was like, `Ya know what, I can try to make a comeback, got to play a couple games and to be put on the roster is pretty rewarding for me and Im just going to try to do my best to help our team any way I can.Gomes hand isnt completely healed, but thats not going to stop him now, not with a chance to play in the postseason for the second time in his career.Im just going to tape it as tight as we can and hopefully it stays together, he said. But I can tell you, Im going to give 100 percent every time.When Gomes broke his hand on Sept. 14 while playing for Double-A Akron, it appeared his season was over.Doctors told him it could take up to two months to heal, but after picking up a ball and throwing it, Gomes dedicated himself to doing everything he could to get back on the field.Once I first started throwing the ball around, Im like, if I can flick it without noticing, it doesnt hurt as bad, he said. The oonly thing was starting to hit. wholesale jerseys. The first time I hit, it didnt feel very good. The second time, I saw some progress. This was three days after. The hand is still broken, theres still going to be some pain, but they told me, `Look, if you can tolerate it, its not going to get any worse.He returned to the lineup in the seasons final week, but only played a few innings in the field.But then, with an at-bat that seemed pulled from the script of a feel-good movie, Gomes connected for a home run on the first pitch he faced Sunday in Kansas City. The shot electrified his teammates, who have been pulling hard for him to get back.Im really happy for him as an individual, Game 1 starter Trevor Bauer said. Obviously hes going to help our team. Theres no question about that. But just on a personal side, to have him be able to come back and be a part of something that he was a big part of all year and over the past couple of years that hes been here, its really great to see for him.Indians manager Terry Francona, who is carrying three catchers on his ALDS roster, isnt sure how much Gomes will play.I dont think its probably fair to ask him to be a starting catcher and catch nine innings, he said. I think what wed usually try to do during the season, and try to do now, is take what the players do well, try to maximize that, which is certainly catching and throwing, knowledge of the staff, so we can use that. Hes not limited there. And we can use that.If it grows into more, that would be good. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

TOKYO -- Former champions Kei Nishikori and Tomas Berdych lost at the Japan Open on Wednesday. Nike Air Max 90 Baratas Hombre .Top-seeded Nishikori was forced to retire with a left glute problem in the first set of his second-round match against Joao Sousa.Third-seeded Berdych fell to Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 7-6 (7), 6-1 in the first round.Nishikori was up 3-0 when he received medical treatment on his left glute while lying facedown on the court for several minutes.The 2012 and 2014 champ served two weak double faults in the next game, and appeared in pain when chasing the ball. He held serve, but lost the next three games before calling a halt while leading 4-3 in his first matchup with Sousa.Nishikori, ranked No. 5, saw a doctor after the match, and will have a scan Thursday.Sousa moved on to face fifth-seeded David Goffin. The Belgian beat Jiri Vesely 6-3, 7-5.Also, fourth-seeded Marin Cilic rallied to defeat Spanish baseliner Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 7-5, 7-5.Berdych captured his first ATP title of the season when he retained his Shenzhen Open crown in China on Sunday, but his first-round defeat in Tokyo dented his bid for the ATP Finals. He is ninth in the race for the elite eight-man finals, which hes played for the last six years.A weary Berdych, the 2008 champ, squandered three break points in the sixth game then failed to convert a set-point in the first tiebreaker.After falling 3-0 behind in the second set, the Czech called for a trainer to treat a left glute complaint, and was unable to stop Muller, who fired 12 aces.At the beginning of the second set, my body gave me a bit of a sign Ive been playing a little too much tennis in the last couple of weeks, Berdych said.Muller, a two-time finalist this year, next faces Marcos Baghdatis. nike air veer gs online . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. http://www.airmaxbaratasespana.es/nike-free-5-0.html .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Ravi Shastri, the former India captain who served as the team director between 2014 and 2016, has said that the Lodha Committee should continue having a dialogue with the BCCI. Shastri also suggested that the committee should not push the board into a corner over the implementation of reforms as that could prove to be detrimental to Indian cricket in the long run.If you try and push it immediately it might just be detrimental at this moment of time, Shastri told his former India team-mate and co-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar during an interaction that was part of Indias 500th Test celebrations. There are certain areas where I thought you can still have a dialogue with the Lodha Committee because those are things, if applied, it could take the game back. It could be detrimental.Since the release of the Lodha Committees report in January this year, the BCCI has been stoutly defending its position that some of the recommendations would damage Indian cricket on the field as well as financially. However, the Supreme Court on July 18 upheld the committees report, making it mandatory for the BCCI to implement most of the recommendations. The committee has set two deadlines for BCCI and state associations - September 30 and December 30 - to implement the recommendations, failing which the board and its state units could be held in contempt of court.Shastri said that he did not agree with the recommendations of a three-year cooling-off period for administrators, an age cap of 70 years for officials, and trimming of the national selection panel from five to three members. Incidentally, the BCCI had also declared its reservations on the cooling-off period and age-cap recommendations.Shastri termed the three-year cooling-off period harsh and believed it could dissuade players who wanted to move into cricket administration. Instead, he suggested, administrators could be allowed an initial term of six years.Why would I want to join the BCCI? Why would any player want to join the BCCI? If I have an idea that is something constructive that I can do, contribute [and] in three years you are telling me to go. What can anyone achieve in three years? How do I know the guy after [me will be] competent enough? If I have done a competent job, I should be respected for my competency. Six years is no harm. After that, if you have to sit out for three years [and] come back for another six, fair enough.Shastri opposed the age cap for administrators saying theree was no substitute for experience. Nike Free 3.0 v4 Mujer. We have got a couple of guys in the board [who are] 70-plus but then, forget a youngster, theyll give anyone from any field a run for their money. I am not targeting anyone or anything, he said. I have seen them working, people know who I am talking about. They are outstanding.Shastri also supported the BCCIs decision to stick to a five-member national selection panel, instead of the three-member panel suggested by the Lodha Committee. At its annual general meeting earlier this week, the BCCI appointed a new five-member selection panel chaired by former India wicketkeeper MSK Prasad. Shastri stated that applying a model practised by countries like Australia was not suitable for a more densely populated country like India.When I played the game, I thought three selectors was enough. But today the way the game has evolved, with the three formats of the game, the interest that exists in the country, the combined number of people that play the game in India is more than the population of all the countries that play cricket together, he said. So if Australia has three selectors that is fine - they have 17-20 million people. Here you are asking the poor guy too much. He will get serious travel miles. He will go from one end to other end of the country and still not be able to do the job. I think five is still in order.Shastri said there was no need for a boxing bout between the committee and the BCCI. It shouldnt be like a boxing bout. A genuine effort should be made ideally from both parties to have a dialogue on certain things. Most of the recommendations are anyway accepted and the board is trying to do something.Shastri feared that if the Lodha Committee remained adamant, Indian cricket could be set back by five years.If things were that bad, you wouldnt have achieved what you have achieved. We are celebrating the 500th Test match, he said. You won two World Cups. You were the No.1 team in the world. So all cannot be wrong. Yes, there might have been areas where you need a whack on the backside to be corrected.We want Indian cricket to carry on. We dont want it to go back by five years. We dont want this team to suffer after five years. There will be total chaos. Other teams will get the upper hand. And then again you will have to try and climb up the ladder.

In my minds eye I see him. Nike Roshe Run Dames Kopen . Boldly he approaches, arms and legs flailing, his body jerking madly to and fro like a human pinball machine. Then the strength through the crease and his trademark right arm over left ear hole delivery. They called him Tanglefloot, Tangles or Tang. No ordinary bloke commands three nicknames.Time stood still when I heard the sad news of Max Walkers passing. Some people seem bulletproof, invincible.Tangles, who had successful Test cricket and VFL football careers, then a lengthy spell on television, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Richie Benaud, Ian Chappell, Bill Lawry and Tony Grieg, was a man who reinvented himself through his career.He was born in West Hobart, Tasmania on September 12, 1948. At Hobart High School he opened the batting, once hitting a century for Tasmania Colts.I played in Tangles debut big game, the second Test against Pakistan at the MCG in December 1972. Despite his gangly action, he was strong at delivery, and his powerful hand whipped down the right side of the ball to deliver legcutters that tended to move in towards the right-hander and then cut away to telling effect.He had to bowl a good deal on that placid MCG pitch. Pakistan amassed 574 for 8 before mercifully declaring. After 24 overs Tangles had to settle for a modest return of 2 for 112. He bowled beautifully in the second innings, taking 3 for 39 off 14 overs. In the wake of their three run-outs and Walkers haul, Pakistan fell for exactly 200 - a 92-run loss. Next day the local paper ran the banner heading across the top of its back page: PANIKSTAN.In the next match, the third in the series, Pakistan needed 159 for a victory. Max bowled with the hostility of a fast bowler and the guile of a class spinner to destroy the visitors, taking 6 for 15 off 16 overs, and the game went to the Australians.A great tour of West Indies followed, where he took 26 wickets at 20.During the first Test of that series, at Sabina Park in Kingston, Lawrence Rowe was giving the Australians a pasting. At one point he hooked Dennis Lillee high to fine leg, where Max ran in in his ungainly way, arms and legs all over the place, until he got to the stage where he had to dive in the general direction of where he thought the ball might land. Thereupon he brought off a near-impossible catch, rolled over gleefully, jumped to his feet and held the ball aloft to the rum-soaked section of the crowd he had been entertaining all morning. His great moment was shattered when Ian Chappell yelled, Tangles, throw the ball back. Its a no-ball - theyve already run three.I was also in the side the day Tangles took a career-best 8 for 143 for Australia, against England at the MCG in 1974-75. Two incidents stand out. One memory is of how he brilliantly caught and bowled England captain Mike Denness. And the other is of him bursting out laughing when the pop singer Shirley Bassey came into the Australian dressing room, sat down with the players and joyfully announced, Glad to see you chaps are winning. There was silence before the famous singers confidant whispered, Maam, I dont think we are in the England dressing room.We won that Ashes series 4-1. The MCG Test was the one that got away.Tangles played a big part in the next series, against West Indies again, helping Australia beat Clive Lloyds men 5-1, though he only played in three of the five Tests.He turned out for Australia in 34 Tests in all, and perhaps his finest period on the big stage was as back-up to Lillee and Jeff Thomson during the 1974-75 summer.Tangles had a Roman nose, big moustache and infectious smile. He was always telling stories, and was known to embellish them in such a way that the most mundane tale suddenly developed a life of its own. Even the Queen couldnt help but grin when she met Max on the field during the afternoon interval on the penultimate day of the 1977 Centenary Test match at Tangles beloved MCG. As he shook hands with Her Majesty, he replied to her general enquiry as to how he was feeling in the heat and with England piling up the runs: Geez, maam, Im bloody hot! The Queen was introduced to the side in alphabetical order, and she had already faced a delivery from Dennis Lillee further back in the line, who had produced an autograph book when Greg Chappell introduced him. Not now, the Queen smiled graciously.In 1975, Tangles accompanied Ross Edwards and yours truly to a dinner at John Arlotts Southampton home. Arlott battled to get a word in. Max had arrived with an avalanche of stories and he intended to deliver them - all of them. The great English raconteur did manage to wax lyrical about the virtues of SF Barnes, but the only time there was silence was when a small woman tripped into the room, said nothing, sat at the end of the table and lit up a corncob pipe. That was the only occasion I ever saw Tangles lost for words.After cricket, he worked tirelessly on radio and television. He was ever on the lookout to create and earn. Opportunities were there for the taking. Once, he offered advice about getting on the public speaking circuit: Rowd, dont wait for the phone to ring. It never will. Be proactive. Be it bowling, writing or speaking, he made things happen. He had a winning formula. He wrote over a dozen books, including How to Hypnotise Chooks, The Wit of Walker and How to Puzzle a Python. Collectively they sold in excess of a million copies. Tangles self-published and promoted them personally, loading up his car with copies of his latest title and taking off to all parts of Australia, including little country towns, selling his books in the wake of brilliant after-dinner talks.He did a number of memorable ads, including one for Aerogard, an insect repellent. In the ad, his co-star, a little boy, asked: What annoys you most as a bowler?Batsmen… and flies, Max answered.At the end of the ad the little boy uttered a line that pretty much became part of folklore in the 1980s: Aveagoodweekend, Mr Walker.Max made many televisions ads, often in league with the legendary Doug Walters. In one, they sat drinking cans of Tooheys low-strength beer in the middle of a lake. The idea was, the boat would capsize. Doug thought trick photography was the way to go, and when he mentioned that to the film crew, Tangles winked. Next thing, Doug was floundering about in the icy water, with Tangles roaring his delight. After a thorough drenching, Walters was looking for more than a Tooheys or two.Back in 1985 I asked Sir Donald Bradman if he would launch a book for me at the SCG. Sir Donald wasnt available, but he later said: I think you have made a good choice in having Max Walker launch your book on Victor Trumper. He is a real humorist and presents a happy medium between the conservatives and the Chappells.Up on high, Tangles will bowl to Trumper and Bradman, talk architecture with Christopher Wren, and no doubt catch up with fellow TV commentators Benaud and Grieg.God love him. We are going to miss him. Nike Lunarglide 6 Dames . Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. Nike Lunarglide 6 Hardloopschoenen . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. http://www.goedkoopnlairmax.nl/nike-flyknit.html . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen to a six-year contract, taking another key restricted free agent off the market.The 21-year-old gets an annual average salary of $5.4 million.Rasmus has already proven to be a pivotal player on our blue line and we are eager to have him back with the team, Sabres general manager Tim Murray said in a statement. This deal is a reflection of the hard work and improvement Rasmus has shown since being drafted and we hope to see him continue on this trajectory moving forward.After representing Finland in the Woorld Cup of Hockey, Ristolainen reported to the Sabres without a contract in what was regarded as a sign of good faith. Nike Air Max Tn Nederland. In three seasons, Buffalos 2013 first-round draft pick has established himself as the Sabres top defenseman. Last year, Ristolainen led the team with 25 minutes of ice time per game, and led Buffalo defensemen with 41 points (nine goals, 32 assists).Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Sikki Reddy says that her new partnership with Ashwini Ponnappa was formed with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as the ultimate goal and the Asian Games two years hence as the first step. Nike Air Huarache Dames .Sikkis decision to team up with Ashwini came after the latter broke up with Jwala Gutta, three months after they competed at the 2016 Olympics. Jwala has called time on her womens doubles career and Sikki - currently ranked 111 in womens doubles and 23 in mixed doubles - hopes she will be able to take her place in the partnership with Ashwini.One month back, our Malaysian doubles coach Kim Tan Her, Gopi bhaiyya, Ashwini and I had a discussion and we decided to pair up. Of course, 2020 Tokyo was a reason but that is too far away, four long years, and we want to just focus on the smaller events now, Sikki told PTI.We are a scratch pairing so we have no ranking. We have to start with smaller events and make our way up. I hope we can gather some good ranking points and then target the Super Series and big events. 2018 Commonwealth Games and Asian Games will be the immediate targets for us.Sikki and Ashwini will be playing the Scottish Open (Nov 23-27), Welsh International (Nov 30-Dec 3) and Irish Open Dec 7-10) this year before combining again at the Malaysia Masters (Jan 17-22) and Syed Modi International (Jan 24-29) next year.Speaking about the partnership, Ashwini said: When I started with Jwala, I had zero exposure to international badminton but it is not the case with Sikki. She is experienced and has done well in mixed doubles. She has played super series events. So I think we will not take much time to gel well.The 23-year-old Sikki is left-handed like Jwala. Sikki said that being left-handed give her an additional advantage.Being a lefty is a big positive as I have got a lot of variations in my strokes. Of course, she has more experience in womens doubles and needs to guide me and believe in me, said Sikki, who had clinched the 2016 Brazil Grand Prix with Pranaav Jerry Chopra in mixed doubles.Asked how different is their combination from her pairing with Jwala, Ashwini said: There are few things which are quite different; Sikki and me can rotate more than before. If I move towards the net, she can cover the back of the court and vice versa.But we need to work on our strengths and weaknesses and it is going to be a great learning experience for the initial year for us, added Ashwini, who will also be pairing up with K Nanadagopal in mixed doubles in the upcoming three events.
