NEW YORK -- Missing key components, the Baltimore Orioles offense is sputtering. Eagles Womens Jerseys .You dont say, well, this is just que sera, something that comes about, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Tuesday nights 7-1 loss to the New York Yankees. You cant live in that world. Were better than that. I know our guys are frustrated.Baltimore has lost three straight and nine of 15, and its AL East lead over second-place Boston was cut to one-half game. The Orioles have scored 10 runs in five games since the All-Star break and batted .150 (9 for 60) with one extra-base hit in the first two games of the series.First baseman Chris Davis (stomach virus) missed his second straight game and catcher Matt Wieters (sore right foot) also was out. Outfielder Hyun Soo Kim (strained right hamstring) went on the disabled list before the game.Weve got to find ways to continue to grind at-bats out and get guys on base, whether its a walk or a two-strike hit or something, said Caleb Joseph, who started in place of Wieters. Thats something that we usually do that prolongs innings that gives us a chance to win the games.Davis might be available for Wednesday.Hes got a little better color, a little better look, Showalter said. Hes had a pretty tough go of it, and I was proud of him that he came in the locker room. ... Hes starting to eat a little bit. I think he tried to have a banana and some other stuff, but hes just now getting to where he can hold something down.Wieters fouled a ball off the foot in the series opener. Showalter said a Wednesday return was possible.Matts pretty sore, he said.Starlin Castro homered in the second off Vance Worley (2-1) and hit a two-run double in the sixth against Odrisamer Despaigne. Chase Headley added a two-run homer off Mychal Givens in the eighth.Wearing glasses with bright orange frames, Worley made his first start since April 15 following 18 consecutive relief appearances. He allowed three runs, three hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings, lasting 88 pitches.Im going to treat it as if Im in the rotation until they tell me Im out, so Ill get my work in and do what I need to do, Worley said. Its up to them to make their decision..Nathan Eovaldi (8-6) retired 11 straight batters before walking Ryan Flaherty in the sixth. He gave up Joey Rickards RBI double and loaded the bases with a walk to Manny Machado.Anthony Swarzak got major league home run leader Mark Trumbo to foul out to Rob Refsnyder down the right-field line, and the rookie first baseman made a two-hop throw home that held Adam Jones at third. Jonathan Schoop then fouled out to shortstop Didi Gregorius. Swarzak retired eighth straight batters, and Nick Goody struck out the side in a perfect ninth.We had some good people up, Showalter said. When you get those opportunities youve got to try to cash them in. Youre not going to get many.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: Kim was put on the 15-day DL retroactive to July 11 and Baltimore selected the contract of OF Julio Borbon from Double-A Bowie. OF Henry Urrutia was designated for assignment. ... RHP Darren ODay (strained right hamstring) threw a 35-pitch simulated game. He could make a minor league appearance Friday for Bowie and be activated Sunday or Monday.UP NEXTRHP Michael Pineda (3-9) is to start for the Yankees on Wednesday and RHP Yovani Gallardo (3-1) for the Orioles. Gallardo hasnt gotten a decision in his last three outings; he is 2-0 with a 5.04 ERA in six starts since he was activated June 18 following a stint on the DL caused by right biceps tendinitis. Wholesale Eagles Jerseys .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. Eagles Stitched Jerseys . Sulaiman, 44, was chosen unanimously Tuesday in a vote by the leadership, the World Boxing Council said. Sulaiman becomes the sixth president of the organization. . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. Fourteen years ago, Robin Uthappa, a teenage batsman who came with the reputation of being Karnatakas batting future, replaced J Arunkumar in the state side before the start of the domestic season. Arunkumar, a senior player and part of Ranji Trophy-winning sides in 1995-96, 1997-98 and 1998-99, was aggrieved and turned professional, playing for Assam and Goa before retiring in 2008. Four years later, when he took on a coaching role with Karnataka, Arunkumar found himself in the same position as the selectors were in 2002-03, having to take the brave call of dropping seniors.This decision, Arunkumar believes, has led to the renaissance of Karnataka cricket, taking them from an almost there side to back-to-back Ranji Trophy titles in 2013-14 and 2014-15. It is a process he is prepared to stick to as Karnataka look to reclaim the title they lost in 2015-16. They have begun promisingly this season, with a win and a draw from two matches.It was tough, but [there were] very conscious decisions to replace senior players like KB Pawan, Ganesh Satish and a few others, Arunkumar, who is now head coach, told ESPNcricinfo. That call was a must then because the team management was mindful of the bigger picture. By that I mean, by 26-27 if a cricketer wasnt playing for India A at least, chances of the national cap were remote. We didnt want a situation where a player is just happy playing state cricket and then going away. It was a bold decision we took when asked to present a roadmap for the state team, one that has worked wonderfully so far.Arunkumar said the decision to part with senior players put tremendous pressure on the youngsters, with some of them scrutinised on a match-by-match basis. When Arunkumar took over as batting coach before the 2012-13 season, KL Rahul was not a regular in the side. Karun Nair, Mayank Agarwal and Shreyas Gopal had not made their first-class debuts. Manish Pandey was far from national reckoning and Uthappa was struggling with form and fitness after being left out of the India team.Rahul, for example, made his first-class debut in 2010, but was dropped after three matches. It took him two more years to re-establish himself. Nair, too, failed in his first two matches. There was pressure not to give more chances, but as coach, you have to go by instinct, and I went with my heart, Arunkumar said. Even someone like Karun Nair did well in only his third game.A lot of times I have seen, and I say it from experience, that some players are slow starterrs. Eagles Youth Jerseys. . As a coach you have to give them the confidence. You need to be transparent and straightforward, you cant be manipulative and get away; you will be sorted otherwise. We were in fact extremely lucky to have a core group in such quick time that the two championship wins brought many of them in national focus. The national focus brought with it new challenges. The price Karnataka have paid for being so successful over the past couple of seasons is that they have lost players to the national or India A teams at various stages. While it is a matter of pride, Arunkumar said the challenge lay in handling fame and remaining grounded.Luckily were in a good position where those who have played for India realise the need to not take things lightly when they return, Arunkumar said. That is the challenge for us as coaches to bring out the best in them. There is an inclination to not give 100% sometimes, but we have given everybody ownership and authority to take their decisions, else coaches will be made to look like prison wardens. Thats what we were taught in 1995-96 when we won the Ranji Trophy.In 2015-16, Karnataka suffered from the after-effects of another aspect of national-team ambitions. Senior players Uthappa and CM Gautam had a small misunderstanding over their roles in the side because of the split wicket-keeping policy that stemmed from Uthappas desire to press his case as a keeper-batsman for India, a role he had fulfilled with Kolkata Knight Riders.CM probably missed out on an IPL contract because of that, but all that is in the past now, Arunkumar insisted. CM lost a bit of credibility because no one saw him as a wicketkeeper, but he did it for the team. Robin himself realised it was affecting team chemistry. So this season we decided to let specialists handle their own jobs.With the team set to remain on the road for the next three months, Arunkumar believes bonding between the players will be vital when wins are elusive. Theyre all mostly friends even outside the cricket ground, he said. They plan bike rides, movies, treks and outings during the off season. We all regularly meet for dinners during the season too. Were even allowed to have a couple of beers from time to time to celebrate victories. As a coach, you cant be imposing and set team rules and curfews. The boys understand where to draw the line, so its fine.
