PHOENIX -- With their victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, the San Diego Padres are close to pulling out of the cellar in the NL West. Cheap NBA Jerseys .Derek Norris drove in three runs with a home run and a double before leaving with an injury and the Padres handed the Diamondbacks yet another home loss 8-4 on Monday night.The Padres Yangervis Solarte added a two-run homer and Luis Perdomo (3-3) pitched six solid innings to get the victory. The 23-year-old right-hander, in his sixth start, allowed three runs on nine hits, striking out five with no walks. He pitched to one batter in the seventh.Manager Andy Green said the only time Perdomo got into trouble was when he abandoned his sinker.If we can get him to throw a sinker 95 percent of the time, hes not going to get hit, Green said, (but) he starts to believe hes got to pitch like everybody else, that hes got to flip sliders in to punch guys out and doesn.tNorris, the teams catcher, left in the eighth inning when he was struck in the arm by a bat on the follow-through by hitter Brandon Drury.I think hes going to be fine, Green said. Hes going to get an X-ray to check just to make sure that everythings good. It caught him on that nerve, the funnybone. He just couldnt get feeling back.Norris two-run homer off Archie Bradley (3-4) in the sixth put the Padres up for good. Bradley, starting in place of injured Zack Greinke, went six innings, giving up five runs on six hits as Arizona fell to 14-31 at home, second-worst in the National League.We are just not playing winning baseball right now, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. That is what it boils down to. `Solarte homered for the third time at Chase Field this season.The balls go out here, he said. Its not necessarily my focus. Im just trying to make good contact. I know I can hit balls out, but thats not what Im trying to do. Im trying to square balls up and thankfully the balls have been going out.Jake Lamb had an RBI triple and Paul Goldschmidt a run-scoring double for the Diamondbacks, who fell into a virtual tie with the Padres for last place in the NL West.Norris, 1-for-13 in San Diegos just-completed home stand, got the green light on a 3-0 pitch and sent it into the left field seats, a two-run homer with two outs in the sixth that gave the Padres their first lead, 5-3. Norris and Ryan Schimpf, batting .132 entering the game, added RBI doubles off reliever Daniel Hudson in San Diegos three-run eighth.Arizona went ahead 3-2 when Lamb poked the ball down the right field line for an RBI triple.The lead didnt last long. Bradley walked Wil Myers to start the sixth, Matt Kemp doubled to deep left-center and it was 3-3 to set up Norris home run.Arizona took a 2-0 lead in the first. One run scored on Goldschmidts double, the other on a throwing error by the third baseman Solarte.He made up for it in the fourth, following Kemps single with a home run into the right field seats to tie it at 2-2.EXPERIMENT OVERThe Peter OBrien experiment is over, at least for now. The team optioned him back to Triple-A Reno on Monday. The big outfielder was tearing up the Pacific Coast League -- batting .356 with 17 homers and 52 RBI. But major league pitching often baffled him, especially the off-speed stuff.OBrien appeared in 21 games with the Diamondbacks, batting .123 with four homers but 25 strikeouts in 60 plate appearances. OBrien struck out with the tying run on third to end Sundays 5-4, 11-inning loss to San Francisco.Shortstop Nick Ahmed was activated from the paternity list and took OBriens roster spot.UP NEXTPadres: Lefty Christian Friedrich (4-3, 3.96 ERA) makes his 10th start of the season.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (1-0, 4.35) will be called up from Triple-A Reno again to make his second start of the season Wholesale NBA Jerseys China .

Andrew Wiggins wants to play for the Toronto Raptors. Jerseys NFL Cheap . That was what next years top draft prospect said Tuesday after accepting the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year award. Asked if the NBA draft were tomorrow which team he thought would draft him, the Toronto native said his hometown. "I would like to say the Raptors," Wiggins told a reporter. "I want to play for them." Wiggins award has him amongst elite names to be honoured, including LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Kevin Love. The 18-year-old Wiggins is bound for the University of Kansas, where he hopes to deliver the Jayhawks a national championship. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Authentic . Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. Wholesale NBA Jerseys China . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. TAMPA, Fla. -- Nine games into his bid to transform the bumbling Tampa Bay Buccaneers into championship contenders, the normally unflappable Tony Dungy reached a boiling point.A 1-8 record was discouraging, but hardly the only disheartening aspect of yet another slow start for a perennial last-place franchise that suffered through 13 consecutive losing seasons before the young coachs arrival in 1996.The soft-spoken Dungy, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, recalled walking into his office after a third consecutive loss by six or fewer points on the road and learning one player failed to show up for an off-day appearance at an elementary school. Another was 45 minutes late for an autograph session at a car dealership.The Oakland Raiders were headed to town that week, but there was more pressing business at hand.We go into our nine oclock meeting, supposedly to introduce the game plan on the Raiders. I said: `Let me just show you something, and put the two notes on the overhead projector. This is what were dealing with, Dungy said.`You want to know why we arent winning. This is why we arent winning. I said, we can give you game plans, we can do tackling drills, we can do all that, its not going to change until you guys get this figured out, and I dont know how to do that because Ive been doing it for three months, the coach added. I left, let the players talk about it. We ended up beating the Raiders in overtime.Dungys even temperament and insistence on players doing things the right way not only helped him survive his only losing season to lead Tampa Bay to four playoff berths in six seasons, but also become the first African-American to win a Super Bowl as a head coach during a stellar seven-year run with the Indianapolis Colts.And while an impressive coaching resume speaks for itself, the 60-year-olds greatest legacy may be the impact hes had on peoples lives through various civic and charitable endeavors.I never felt our only job was to win, said Dungy, 139-69 in 13 seasons, including 85-27 with the Colts from 2002-08.The disciple of Hall of Famer Chuck Noll had a combined 9-10 postseason record, leading the Bucs to the NFC title game in 1999 and winning it all with the 2006 Colts.His place in history is not lost on Dungy, the first black elected to the Hall of Fame on the basis of coaching accomplishments. The time he spent as a player and assistant under Noll shaped his philosophy.Coach Noll was so tremendous in that regard talking about your life, not just football. That yes, we want to accomplish some things, but you had to get ready for life, Dungy said, You had to figure out what you were going to be all about as a person.There were only a handful of black assistants in the NFL when Dungy entered the league as a player in 1977. He spent 15 seasons as part of successful staffs in Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Minnesota before getting to lead his own team.I think, first, of the guys who could only coach in the black schools. You cant tell me that Eddie Robinsson and John Merritt and Jake Gaither wouldnt have won in the National Football League. Supply NFL Jerseys. Then you had guys who were assistants, who were never thought of as coordinators or head coaches. It wasnt in the realm of things, said Dungy, now an analyst for NBCs Football Night in America.Despite leading teams to the playoffs in 11 of 13 seasons as a head coach, Dungy endured plenty of criticism.He was fired by Tampa Bay in 2001, two years after reaching the NFC championship game. Although the Colts made the playoffs in each of his seven seasons, some detractors argue Dungy should have won more Super Bowls with a high-powered offense led by Peyton Manning and receiver Marvin Harrison, whos also part of this years Hall of Fame class.Dungys resume includes an NFL-record 10 consecutive playoff berths with the Bucs and Colts. Still, he believes the contributions he -- and many of his players -- made off the field matter most.In our first meeting, he talked about changing the community, thats how were going to win, said former Bucs linebacker Derrick Brooks, a first-ballot Hall of Famer enshrined two years ago.It wasnt about Xs and Os. I was a little appalled, thinking how can you start out and youre not talking about wins when I lost more games last year than I did in my whole (college) career. But it was intriguing.I talked to him after that, and he told me: `Derrick, this is bigger than football, Brooks added. Were going to change the community, and through that everybody wins.He sought to do the same in Indianapolis.That was what was so enticing to me about the Colts job. When Jim Irsay called me, he said we want to win, obviously, we want to go to Super Bowls, and thats the goal. But were relatively new in Indianapolis, and we dont have the history of 75 years of football, Dungy said.He said: `Weve got to attract the community, got to become a part of it. He mentioned he wanted to do it like the Steelers did.Though Dungy walked away from coaching after the 2008 season, his influence remains.Six of his former assistants -- Mike Tomlin, Herman Edwards, Jim Caldwell, Rod Marinelli, Leslie Frazier and Lovie Smith -have held head coaching positions. Tomlin has won a Super Bowl, while Caldwell and Smith have guided teams to the title game.For guys like me, he was a living breathing role model, Tomlin said. He really provided great clarity in terms of what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it.Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp calls Dungy the greatest man I ever met in my life. He and Brooks were drafted in the first round in 1995, the year before Dungy arrived.Did I ever think in 1996 when he challenged Sapp and I to be the Joe Greene and Jack Ham of his defense, that the three of us would be teammates 20 years later in the Hall of Fame? Brooks asked. Absolutely not. I had no idea.

ESPN is getting a do-over. Cheap Jerseys .Eleven years after the network telecast an NFL game from Mexico City , it will do so again when the Raiders host the Texans on Monday night.Jay Rothman, ESPNs vice president of production and the Monday Night Football producer, wants this broadcast to be a lot different.We were there in 2005 and I wish we could do `05 over again, and we will not make the same omissions, Rothman says. We went in and did the game and got out.Mexico City is such an awesome city and we will make it a weekend-long spectacle.ESPN has lucked out that the game has plenty of significance, with the Raiders tied for the AFC West lead and best record in the conference heading in, and the Texans leading the AFC South. But this is about more than football.It is about the first international series match there since the Cardinals beat the 49ers at Azteca Stadium in 2005. Its about the stadium itself, one of the most famous sports venues in the world. Its about the fans, who might not follow football as closely as they do futbol, but who generally embrace the American game.And it is about Mexico.The Xs and Os we do every week, Rothman says. I think we are silly not to take advantage and sprinkle in the history of Azteca Stadium. Culturally, look at the fans of Mexico, who share the passion they have for the NFL. The food, the flavor, and points of interest. We will do that all within the body of a three-hour show.Actually, ESPN isnt so limited. It will also stage its pregame shows and other studio programming from Mexico City this weekend. Joining the broadcast team of Sean McDonough, Jon Gruden and Lisa Salters will be ESPN Deportes John Sutcliffe, who lives in the city.John is a rock star in Mexico now, he is our breakthrough guy, Rothman says. He will have kind of like a Jim McKay host-type role, though that is challenging within a football game.He will be integrated to share the great moments of Azteca, educate people on the fandom of Mexican fans and as a great people. He is our point person to share those perspectives and stories.Gruden has become something of a rock star in the NFL broadcasting world, and while his main job is to dissect play on the field, it will be intriguing to hear his take on not only the game, but the entire scene Monday night.He coached the Raiders in a preseason game against the Cowboys in Mexico City in 2001.The stadium is what I remember the most, he says. The tradition, the monstrosity of it, the excitement of playing in a place you have only seen and heard about. I am anxious to get back there and rekindle the feeling.Azteca has undergone massive renovations, not only to attract the NFLs return, but as home of Club America and of the Mexican national soccer team, and to keep it on the radar for major events in the worlds most popular sport. Yet it has kept much of its uniqueness, Rothman notes.Theres still the moat and the barbed wire, which was there in `05, he says. They built these beautiful locker rooms, but they are outside the stadium (bowl).Players will walk to and from the field through the stands to the stadiums outside, which is where the locker rooms are. It is 7,200 feet (in altitude), and you think especially of the heavy players wearing pads making that walk. Cant imagine doing it with helmets and pads on. They will be sucking air bigtime.It will allow for unique shots and vantage points, not only from the air but the nooks and crannies of the stadium and its features, the march to the field and back up, the pageantry.Rothman promises his network wont avoid covering any non-football news that becomes relevant with the NFL in town. Concern has been voiced in some circles about potential protests in Mexico City over the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.We wear our news hats, too, and we will get together and discuss that, Rothman says. If there are things outside and inside the stadium to cover, we would be criticized for ignoring them and we need to do the right thing.I dont think wed intentionally shoot specific signs (of protest), but if we see what we have seen outside the Trump Tower, we will be obligated to cover it.Gruden says he has no concerns about safety or security.I am excited to go, he says. Ive got my passport and ready to roll. Last time I was there I got to see some really cool places and met some people -- I have no concerns whatsoever.In the end, what usually is most memorable about NFL games on international stages is how entertaining the game is. In that way, the reactions are no different from games held in Miami or the Meadowlands, Seattle or San Diego.I got a feeling there will be a lot of Raiders fans, Gruden says. There were the last time I was there ... and there will be a lot of Texans fans there. It will be loud, like a Raiders home game, I wouldnt be surprised.---For more NFL coverage: and NFL Jerseys From China .

MIAMI -- Adam Morgans epic losing streak is finally over.Morgan snapped his major league-worst streak of nine consecutive losses, Odubel Herrera scored three runs and the Philadelphia Phillies spoiled Miami slugger Giancarlo Stantons return by beating the reeling Marlins 4-3 on Tuesday night.Morgan (2-9) allowed five hits and one run in six innings. He hadnt won since May 10, going 0-9 with a 6.72 ERA in his last 15 appearances, 13 of those starts.Its good to see because he needed to make a change in his approach and pitch differently than he has in the past and hes starting to do that, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. He can get better and better.Morgan was staked to a 2-0 lead before his work even started, and was never in any serious trouble. His command wasnt great -- 85 pitches, 54 strikes -- but he didnt issue a walk and lowered his ERA from 6.21 to 5.90.Feels good. It feels good, Morgan said. Defense made some awesome plays behind me. But you know, its been the same game plan. ... Keep it down, keep it simple and we just went out and executed.Tommy Joseph and Freddy Galvis each drove in two runs for the Phillies.Ichiro Suzuki hit the first pinch-hit home run of his career, a two-run shot in the eighth for Miami. Stanton was activated from the disabled list about an hour before the game and delivered a pinch-hit single in the fifth for Miami, which lost for the 10th time in 11 games.Jose Urena (3-6) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings for Miami, which is 11-23 since Aug. 1.I was trying to stay down in the zone, Urena said. And I did, but they found holes.Jeanmar Gomez pitched the ninth for his 35th save in 39 chances for the Phillies. It was eventful -- Maikel Franco threw a potential game-ending double-play ball into center field to give Miami runners on first and second with one out in the ninth, but Gomez got Ichiro to line out and then struck out Dee Gordon looking to end the game.With Morgans losing streak now over the distincttion of having the longest such active drought in the majors goes to San Diegos Christian Friedrich and the New York Mets Logan Verrett, both losers of eight straight decisions. Wholesale NBA Jerseys. Meanwhile, the jolt the Marlins got from Stantons return wasnt enough.Stanton lined a sharp single off Morgan in his return, jogging to first and being removed for a pinch-runner. The Marlins also activated first baseman Justin Bour from the 60-day DL on Tuesday, after he missed two months with an ankle injury. Bour reached on a walk in the eighth.The Marlins were still firmly in the wild card mix in late August, but time is running out.Obviously, were not in a great spot right now, at this moment, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. But again, I talk about it a lot -- things can change quickly.HERRERA LOVES MIAMIHerrera has three games in which hes scored at least three runs, and two of them have come in Marlins Park -- the other on Aug. 21, 2015. His career best for runs in a game is four, set on April 23 at Milwaukee.FOR STARTERSMorgan giving up one run extended a streak of success for Phillies starters against the Marlins in 2016. In nine of the teams last 11 games, Philadelphias starter has been charged with no more than two earned runs.OLYMPIC VIBEAshleigh Johnson -- a Miami native who was the goalie for the gold medal-winning U.S. womens water polo team at last months Rio de Janeiro Olympics -- threw out the ceremonial first pitch.TRAINERS ROOMThe Marlins had LHP Wei-Yin Chen (elbow) and RHP Bryan Morris (back surgery) throw in the simulated game to Stanton and Bour. Chen could return to the rotation before the season ends.UP NEXTThe series ends Wednesday with Phillies RHP Jeremy Hellickson (10-8, 3.88) going up against Marlins RHP Andrew Cashner (4-11, 5.00).

Pakistan 337 for 5 (Azam 123, Malik 90, Sarfraz 60*) beat West Indies 278 for 7 (Bravo 61, Samuels 57, Riaz 2-48) by 59 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsPakistan followed up their 3-0 T20I series win by sealing the ODI series with yet another clinical display against West Indies in Sharjah. Francis Coquelin Arsenal Jersey . Pakistans 59-run win was set up by their most and least experienced batsmen - Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam - who combined to display the art of batting through the middle overs on a slow surface to lead them to 337 for 5, the third-highest total in Sharjah.Azam struck a chanceless century, his second successive one, and Malik blitzed 90 as the pair strung together 169, Pakistans highest stand for the third wicket against West Indies. In reply, West Indies found the chase too steep and could only manage 278 for 7.Openers Azhar Ali and Sharjeel Khan put West Indies under pressure from the outset after Pakistan opted to bat. Sharjeel used his bottom hand to clear the infield regularly, collecting three fours and a six in his 12-ball 24 before West Indies hit back, removing both batsmen in the space of three balls.Thereafter, Azam and Malik stalled West Indies with sound technique and calculated risks. Azam pierced the field while Malik went over it, both equally effective in collecting frequent boundaries and keeping the score moving. Sulieman Benns introduction was delayed, but Malik capitalised on the bowlers modus operandi of flight and loop from around the wicket.Malik struck five sixes off Benn - three in succession in the 27th over - by shimmying down, getting underneath the ball and going over the arc between long-on and midwicket. The period between overs 21 and 35 yielded 107 in conditions not suited to effortless run-scoring.In between, Azam unfurled classy drives through cover and found gaps in the outfield to accumulate runs. After Malik carved one to point, Azam utilised Pakistans strong platform. His 126-ball 123 included nine fours and a six, which indicated his ability to maintain a high strike rate through ones and twos. Neither Malik nor Azam offered even a half-chance until their dismissals.Towards the latter stages of the innings, West Indies seemed to stall Pakistans ease at finding the boundary through clever variations in pace until Sarfraz Ahmed plundered four fours in five balls in the 47th over. Sarfraz struck an unbeaten 60, but it went largely unnoticed behind Azam and Maliks pyrotechnics.West Indies needed to pull off the highest successful chase in Sharjah to stay alive in the series, but their innings got the same start as the four previous games on this tour: an early wicket. Johnson Charles, looking to clear the off-side infield, toe-ended a catch to cover off Mohammad Amir to start the slide.Kraigg Brathwaite and Darren Bravo were left with the task of stabilising the innings in the face of some accurate bowling. Their 89-run second-wicket stand was built on the back of some sweetly-timed boundaries and plenty of singles, but it also took up 118 balls - not quick enough for a steep chase in tough run-scoring conditions.However, West Indies remained in the fight as Bravo took the onus of accelerating by attacking left-arm spinners Imad Wasim and Mohammad Nawaz. He struck three sixes over long-on off overpitched deliveries, two of which cleared the ground.Hasan Ali, though, removed Bravo with an athletic piece of fielding off his own bowling. Bravo nudged a yorker towards short leg and Hasan sprang towards the ball in his follow-through, picked up while sliding, turned around and fired an accurate throw at the non-strikers end, all in one swift motion.Marlon Samuels was up against a mounting asking rate and a wily bowling side. He stuck around for 52 balls and struck 57, but the enormity of the task in front of West Indies meant that his effort didnt suffice.Eventually, the asking rate was too steep an ask even for West Indies powerful middle order. That they couldnt capitalise on six dropped chances by Pakistan told the story. Calum Chambers Jersey . "No difference at all," chirped U.S. roommate and linemate James van Riemsdyk.

Steyn and Vernon Philander, abetted by exaggerated variable bounce on a deteriorating SuperSport Park surface, set up South Africas first Test series win since early 2015 by ripping through New Zealands top order in a devastating seven-over period before lunch.Despite an impressive half-century from Henry Nicholls, New Zealand never really recovered from being 18 for 4 at lunch, and they were eventually bowled out half an hour from stumps.Steyn landed the first ball of the fourth innings in the channel outside off stump - it was wide enough for Tom Latham not to play but the extra bounce caught him unawares, and the ball clattered into the stumps off Lathams withdrawing bat. It was the third time in three innings on this tour that Steyn had dismissed Latham.Five balls later, Martin Guptill got an unplayable outswinger: it pitched on off and swerved away to take the outside edge to Hashim Amla at first slip.The variable bounce kept troubling New Zealand. In the second over, Kane Williamson was rapped on the glove by an inswinger from Philander that reared at him from a good length. In the next over, Steyn got one to land on a similar length and scoot along the surface to Ross Taylor, trapping him in front. Could New Zealands situation get worse?It did. Williamson, perhaps still suffering the after-effects of the blow to his left hand, wafted at a wide delivery from Philander. He had avoided playing that line throughout the first innings. The ball swung further away and took his outside edge, and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock completed a stunning one-handed catch low to his right.Nicholls offered New Zealands only real resistance with 76, his highest Test score. He was particularly effective square on either siide of the wicket, picking off straight deliveries and punishing width outside off. Mathieu Debuchy Jersey. When the bowlers overpitched, he collected runs through vacant areas down the ground.After weathering a tough period before lunch, he added 68 with Watling for the fifth wicket. With the ball moving both ways, Nicholls and Watling left well outside off, forcing the seamers towards the stumps. The quicks were continually rotated and batting became gradually easier as the middle session wore on.Just when it looked like New Zealand would get through the session unscathed, the offspinner Dane Piedt got one to spin back viciously. Watling shuffled across, missed his flick, and was struck in front of off stump. Watling reviewed, but umpires call on impact meant South Africa had their only wicket of the session.Kagiso Rabada, hitting the high 130-kph range as opposed to the 150 mark he regularly clocked in the first innings, struggled for fluency, rhythm and accuracy before tea. A number of wayward deliveries on either side of the wicket were easily avoided or dispatched to the boundary. However, he returned late in the day to pick up two-lower order wickets: he had Tim Southee bowled with a spearing yorker on off stump and beat Neil Wagner for pace to pin him in front of middle and leg.Mitchell Santner, Doug Bracewell and Southee all got off to starts, but could not stay long enough at the crease to help Nicholls to a maiden Test ton.

Kurtis Patterson, 23 (NSW) It has taken some years for Patterson to build on the potential shown in 2011, when at 18 he became the youngest batsman in Sheffield Shield history to score a century. Air Max 2018 Shoes For Sale . But since the start of last summer, only George Bailey has more Shield runs than Pattersons 959 at 53.27. Ed Cowan calls him the best young top-order batsman in the country by miles. Importantly, Patterson has worked on his patience, learning to bat for long periods: on a very slow and challenging pitch in Mackay last December he hunkered down for 261 balls for 55. And he can bat a side out of a hole: in March, the top order collapsed around him to be 4 for 26, but his 100 led the recovery and New South Wales won the match. He also has recent form, having made three half-centuries from four innings against South Africa A in July-August, and 111 and 60 in the first two Shield rounds of the season. Patterson is certainly one of the leading candidates for a call-up to Adelaide.Peter Handscomb, 25 (Vic) On the list of Shield run scorers since the start of last summer, Patterson is closely followed by Handscomb, who in that time has 932 runs at 44.38. A versatile batsman who has moved up and down the order and now settled at No.4, Handscomb importantly has stepped up when given opportunities for Australia A. This winter he made a first-class 137 against South Africa A and 87 against India A, and on a tour of India last year impressed with 91 in Chennai. In that match he used his feet well against the spinners, and his state captain Matthew Wade this week described him as arguably one of the best players of spin weve got in Australia. Adding to his big-match credentials, he was Man of the Match in last summers Shield final win over South Australia for his 112 and 61*. He has started this Shield season with 78 and 60 in the first two rounds, and with 60 first-class games behind him, should be ready for Test cricket.Cameron Bancroft, 23 (WA) If Australias selectors want a young batsman who can bat long - really long - then Bancroft should be the first name on their list. In March 2015, he batted for 13 hours and 567 balls in compiling 211 against New South Wales, comfortably the longest first-class innings by any Australian in the past decade. In fact, since his first-class debut, three of the 12 longest Shield innings have belonged to Bancroft. He found a way to handle spin against India A, sweeping to great effect on his way to 150 in Chennai last year, and is a likely candidate for next years Test tour of India. All of this makes it incomprehensible that Australias selectors picked him for a T20 earlier this year. Perhaps it was fortunate that he didnt get to face a ball. Test cricket is Bancrofts future. However, it is questionable whether now is the best time to choose him, for he hasnt made a hundred in his past 23 first-class innings.Travis Head, 22 (SA) Highly rated for several years already, Head for a long while had one great failing as a first-class batsman: he couldnt seem to crack triple figures. Early last summer he finally - in his 64th first-class innings - made a century, and went on to score three for the Shield season, including 192 against Tasmania, a remarkable innings in a low-scoring match. It was a fine way to step up in his first full season as South Australias captain. Whether he has a Test-match temperament perhaps remains to be seen - two of his three first-class tons have come at near or better than a run a ball - but equally there have been times when he has played in a more grinding style. Either way, his talent is not in question. At 22, he has already played for Australia in ODIs and T20s and captained his state to a Shield final. If his time is not now, it may not be far away.Nic Maddinson, 24 (NSW) Ever since he scored a century on first-class debut at age 18, Maddinson has been watched closely as a future international prospect. His talent is not in doubt, but it has taken him some time settle into something resembling a Test-match temperament. Take his first-class 181 for Australia A against Gloucestershire in 2013 for example - it was a big innings but one that was smashed off 143 balls and fraught with danger. Although Maddinson had a modest 2015-16 Shield season, with 488 runs at 30.50, he scored 81 against India A in Brisbane this winter and has started this summer well, with 116 against Western Australia in his only game so far. Notably, it was a more patient knock, and one that took New South Wales from 3 for 57 to nearly 300.Jake Lehmann, 24 (SA) On numbers alone, it is hard to argue with Lehmanns credentials: he averages 48.96 in first-class cricket, with five centuries from his 18 appearances. He has also started this summer well, with 129* against Tasmania in the most recent Shield round, and he showed he could adapt to foreign conditions by scoring 116 for Yorkshire against Somerset during one of only two county first-class games that he played this year. Notably, that Yorkshire hundred was a rescue effort - he came in at 37 for 3, though was dropped at slip before he had scored. Lehmann is also well-rounded as a person away from cricket, having studied human movement and health science, and he is completing a masters in primary school teaching.Matt Renshaw, 20 (Qld) Though perhaps not a candidate for right now, Renshaw is undoubtedly a batsman the selectors will watch over the next couple of years. An opener with a good old-fashioned Test match temperament, Renshaw describes his scoring style as nurdling and identifies Alastair Cook as a similar style of batsman. Last summer, in his first full Shield season, he scored 738 runs at 43.41, including two centuries. His patience was on display in Mackay, where on a very slow and challenging pitch he occupied the crease for 395 balls to make 170, which made him Queenslands youngest first-class centurion of all time. This year, he played Matador Cup for the first time, and is yet to make his T20 debut. Id like to expand, he said in July. But Ive got my opportunity with longer form cricket, so I dont want to try and make something in the short form and then lose that longer form. Renshaw made 94 against South Africa A this winter and has missed the first two Shield rounds due to a knee injury but is back this week.Marcus Stoinis, 27 (Vic) He may not grab the headlines like some of the others, but Stoinis just keeps piling up runs. In fact, in the past three years he has made 1772 Shield runs at 43.21, and has more scores of 50-plus than anyone but Adam Voges during that period. Add to that a score of 120 against South Africa A in Brisbane during the winter, and 77 against India A in Chennai last year - having come in at 75 for 4 - and it becomes apparent that Stoinis has plenty of credits in the bank. He also adds an extra bowling option with his medium pace and has already played ODI and T20 cricket for Australia. On the downside, he hasnt had a particularly productive start to the summer, but dont be surprised if Stoinis finds himself in a Test squad at some point down the track.Matthew Wade, 28 (Vic) Now we come to some older options, with Test experience. Wade is a combative type of cricketer and has two Test centuries to his name already - a good tally for a wicketkeeper from only 12 Tests - and both were scored from challenging situations. He has captaincy experience and nous, and could serve as a valuable lieutenant to Steven Smith. Wade started this season with 78 in the pink-ball Shield round and averages 39.40 from nearly 100 first-class games. But as a wicketkeeper, is he good enough to oust Peter Nevill? In any case, Nevill was one of the few Australians who showed patience and resolve in the Perth Test, where he ran out of partners trying to save the match and batted nearly four hours for 60*. It is hard to accept that replacing Nevill is the answer to Australias issues. Glenn Maxwell, 28 (Vic) Nobody doubts Maxwells talent, and it is true that his first-class record - an average of 41.64 and five centuries - is impressive for a man often viewed as a short-form specialist. But is Maxwell the type of batsman Australia want coming in to rebuild after a collapse? With a strike-rate of nearly 80 in first-class cricket, Maxwell might need to show a more measured batting side to convince the selectors that he is the man for a crisis. His three Test appearances so far have not augured particularly well. Still, after being dropped for the first round of the Shield season, he bounced back with 81 from 138 balls against Queensland, and will no doubt be talked about at the selection table.Cameron White, 33 (Vic) Bizarrely picked as a legspinner for four Tests in India in 2008 despite hardly bowling domestically, Whites Test career will probably remain limited to that one tour, especially if the selectors now decide to look long-term and blood young batsmen. However, if they decide they want experience, fight and recent runs, then he might come under consideration. One especially notable innings came in Alice Springs in March, when Victoria collapsed to be 5 for 56 in their second innings. It left White and the lower order needing to bat out 74.2 overs against New South Wales to salvage a draw and a place in the Shield final. It is a scenario that should sound familiar after the Perth Test. Well, Victoria did it, and White remained at the end unbeaten on 97 from 253 balls. He also has a century and a fifty from the first two Shield rounds this season, and was the leading scorer in the Matador Cup.George Bailey, 34 (Tas) As with White, age is the main factor against Bailey, whose only five Test appearances came during Australias Ashes whitewash in 2013-14. But since the start of last summer, nobody has made more Shield runs than Baileys 1020 at 53.68, and he believes he is a much better red-ball cricketer now than during that Ashes campaign, when much of his lead-up focus had been on the short forms. It is possible that Baileys strong one-day record in India could help him gain selection for the Test tour there early next year, although the pitches offered up will likely be far tougher to bat on than those he is used to from his limited-overs tours. He is in form, though, and started this Shield summer with 64 in the first round and 142* in the second.Michael Klinger, 36 (WA) If an uncapped 36-year-old is the answer, then surely Australia have spent too long asking the wrong question. In the later stages of his career, Klinger has made mountains of runs, and his overall first-class average of 40.28 is weighed down by a few leaner seasons early in his career. A journeyman now at his third state, Klinger appears destined to end his career without gaining an international cap, for it is hard to imagine the selectors now wanting to do anything but rebuild for the future. It is a shame for Klinger is clearly the kind of batsman who loves batting time, and puts a high price on his wicket. In the past decade, five of the ten longest Sheffield Shield innings by balls faced have belonged to Klinger. Cheap Air Max Shoes . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. Wholesale Air Max 2018 .875,000, avoiding arbitration. Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday.Nearly nine years ago, a roar erupted inside Osakas Nagai stadium as three exhausted runners stormed into the last 10 metres desperate to be 400m world champion. Nicola Sanders lurched towards the line ahead of Jamaican Novlene Williams, who had led for most of the race, and although GB team-mate Christine Ohuruogu won gold, it was still an incredibly gutsy show from the former Sky Academy Sports Scholar. Injuries were a source of frustration for Sanders for the rest of her career and she reluctantly retired in October 2014.As well as that silver in Japan, the High Wycombe-born athlete, coached by Scholarship boss Tony Lester, can boast a load of other medals including European Indoor 400m gold at Birmingham in 2007, clocking 50.02 seconds which is still a British record.So 16 months after hanging up her spikes and now running around changing nappies, how does Sanders reflect on her career, being a mum and how the Sky Scholarship (2010-2012) boosted her?I was looking at my phone the other day and one of my Facebook Memories popped up. It was a photo of me and my running group on a hill session in the rain. And I thought - do we really miss this?I dont miss athletics when its freezing cold. By the end of my career, I was fed up with being away, but at the same time I miss going to South Africa and being in the sunshine and training with people doing what I love.  Christine Ohuruogu pips Sanders to gold in Japan in 2007 So I have mixed feelings. Overall though, I dont miss it - which is good because it means I retired at the right time. I knew I was ready. I was chosen for the relay in London 2012 but they didnt end up picking me, so I lost all my funding. After the Games, I decided to change event and try the 800m.I did that for a year and competed a few times in 2013 and then I got injured again. I thought Id give it one more year but got so injured, I couldnt even compete. I got more and more frustrated. There are only so many times you can say if I wasnt injured, I could have.... I knew it was time to stop.The good part of my career was a long time ago and it feels like I was a separate person. My peak was in 2007. Thats nine years ago, which is crazy. Even when I was doing my best times with silver in Osaka, I thought I could have won that final. I was disappointed and I couldnt appreciate it then. At the start of my career, to say Id be the British indoor record holder and have all the medals I won, I wouldnt have believed it. It did become frustrating but over time, Ive learned to appreciate it. With all the injuries, I feel I could have got more out of it but over time, I feel Ive had a pretty good career and one that many would kill for - even those that arent injured. It was an amazing one-two for GB in that 400m world final in 2007 At the moment, Im very happy being a mum. I will start some different work and eventually I will get back into coaching. Ive always wanted to go into physio because of my injuries but not at the moment. Im very happy looking after Oliver [6 months old]. It wasnt tthat long ago I was training, but as soon as I started being a mum, it felt like I had been doing it for years. Black Mens Air Max Sale. . The transition from athlete to parent has been pretty comfortable. You do have to be self-centred as an athlete with your body, where everything is geared towards training and competing. But I was ready to change that part of my life so it all happened and my life is now all about Oliver. That all happened quite naturally and it doesnt seem such a change because its so normal now - although I obviously have less sleep than I used to! Looking back, being on the Scholarship scheme was brilliant. Tony was my coach and it really assisted in so many ways.It helped me buy essential equipment and I was given the opportunity to learn from some of the mentors, who were Sky presenters where I worked in the studios.It also enabled me to have warm weather training. It helped so much with the injuries being in the sun and doing quality training.  Sanders (second from right) won gold in the 400m relay in Istanbul at the 2012 World Indoor Championships In the build-up to the 2012 season, we went to Florida for five weeks. The whole of our group went and Tony also managed to get out for most of that time. The training was great and that just wouldnt have happened without the Scholarship. I will always be very grateful for that.In the build-up to London, being a Scholar also helped with our profiles and the sports profile. I remember seeing a poster of me running in the middle alongside Sir Chris Hoy and Andy Murray.It was so weird thinking people were seeing it all around the country. I was in a shopping centre and these guys were trying to sell me Sky TV in front of the poster and I was saying hold on... thats me!For any new Scholar starting the scheme, I would say grab it with both hands. Its such an amazing opportunity. Plus having the chance to see the Sky set-up was amazing. It gave me exposure to some great training with media and it gives you money to do the sport you love. I recommend taking every opportunity it gives you.So whats next for me? Before having Oliver, I did some sports massage and personal training. I might go back to that when my son is old enough and maybe some coaching but I dont have definite plans. Sanders just missed out on a spot in the 400m final at the 2008 Olympics As for Oliver, my partner and I were joking about him becoming an athlete recently! We will definitely encourage him to do sport. When he was born, he was diagnosed with Downs Syndrome so we were chatting about signing him up for the Special Olympics and deciding what events hed do! Hes very active though, so hell be into all of this as it is.

NEW YORK -- A simple search on eBay reveals Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is far from the only college football player whose autograph is for sale. Retro Jordan Shoes For Sale . Pick a star and you can find memorabilia with a supposedly verified signature. South Carolinas Jadeveon Clowney. Ohio States Braxton Miller. Oregons DeAnthony Thomas. Louisvilles Teddy Bridgewater. Alabamas AJ McCarron. The list goes on and on. The difference is ESPN has reported the NCAA is investigating whether Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, got paid to sign autographs, which would violate amateurism rules. That has led to other schools being asked questions about whether their players earned money for signatures. If the allegations against Manziel, made by unidentified sources to ESPN, are proved true by the NCAA, his eligibility for the coming season could be in doubt as well as his status as a Heisman winner. ESPN reported that a top autograph authenticator had authenticated nearly 1,000 Manziel autographs. Brandon Steiner of Steiner Sports, which is the official collectible and memorabilia company of the NBA, the New York Yankees and Notre Dame, among others, said his company does not do business with college athletes. He said Manziel would likely be able to sign a contract with a collectibles company of at least $100,000 after he went pro. "I know there is a vibrant Heisman Trophy collectible audience out there," he said. A market flooded with Manziel autographs could cost him money later, Steiner said. "It creates market confusion and takes a lot away from the category," Steiner said Wednesday. Other college athletes might want to take note. Two sports websites -- and -- found what appeared to be dozens of authenticated items signed by Clowney online, and that led to questions for South Carolina officials. Associate athletic director Chris Rogers said Wednesday the schools compliance office has looked into the Clowney autographs on eBay and found no violations had occurred. "The websites that weve looked at and the pictures and autographs and items that weve found over the last academic year, weve not had any issues to suggest that anything impermissible had occurred," Rogers said. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said school officials have determined Miller had not profited from the numerous items found online with his signature. Smith said the quarterback signed many autographs at a Big Ten preseason kickoff luncheon. Presumably fans or memorabilia brokers then went and sold items they got autographed for free. "Weve already looked at it," Smith said. "Theres no issue there." Louisville came to a similar conclusion. "We are aware of many of the items for sale online that have been autographed by several of our student-athletes with remaining eligibility. As we are required to do by NCAA rules, we regularly review these items and send correspondence to the seller(s) requesting they remove the item for sale," the school said in a statement. "We have and continue to educate our student-athletes that it is not permissible to accept any type of compensation for their autograph or the sale of memorabilia. We have spoken with Teddy Bridgewater and we are comfortable that no violation has occurred." Clowney, Bridgewater and Miller enter the season has prime contenders for the Heisman. Manziel became the first freshman to win it last season. Its unclear if an NCAA violation would cause the Heisman trust to reconsider Manziels victory. Heisman Trusts rules state: "The recipient must be in compliance with the bylaws defining an NCAA Student-Athlete." "The Heisman Trust never comments on speculation," Heisman spokesman Tim Henning said Wednesday. Reggie Bushs 2005 Heisman Trophy was later vacated after the NCAA found he had received improper benefits during his winning season. Authentic Jordan Shoes For Sale .

SEATTLE -- After a difficult personal stretch, Marcus Sherels again celebrated an accomplishment on the field.Sherels intercepted Trevone Boykins pass and returned it 53 yards for a touchdown with 1:23 left and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Seattle Seahawks 18-11 on Thursday night.With Boykin trying to lead a late comeback for a second straight week, Sherels stepped in front of his pass intended for E.Z. Nwachukwu and went untouched for the deciding score. Seattle had pulled even at 11-11 when Troymaine Pope scored on a 4-yard touchdown run with 12:49 left and Steven Hauschkas 49-yard field goal later in the fourth quarter.Sherels brother, Mike is a linebackers coach at the University of Minnesota and has been away from the team due to an undisclosed health issue. Marcus Sherels did not play in the preseason opener against Cincinnati.He missed last week because of some personal issues, but came back. ... He does a lot of things for us and does a nice job, Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said. It was nice to see him be rewarded.Boykin got Seattle to the Minnesota 5 in the closing seconds, before taking a sack and was unable to connect with Antwan Goodley in the end zone on the final play.Adrian Peterson was a spectator for Minnesota, as expected. So too, unexpectedly, was quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, given the night off by the choice of Zimmer.

But Walsh missed wide left from 47 yards with 2:09 left that would have given the Vikings the lead.Seattles overhauled offensive line struggled after a decent debut last Saturday against Kansas City. Russell Wilson played the entire first half and was sacked four times, getting pulled down awkwardly on the last sack. Wilson was 5 of 11 for 77 yards.Carroll put the majority of the blame on Seattles quarterbacks for holding the ball too long.We have to get rid of the football so we dont take the negative plays, Carroll said. Russell has to help us there when we dont get the routes cleeared out like we want to and keep the rhythm the way that we want to. Eli Harold Jersey.

We have to catch the ball when we get the opportunity. We all have to be complete backs, Michael said.PRESEASON FOR EVERYONEIts preseason for everyone, including the officials.

Reed had three tackles, but gave Seattle a scare in the third quarter when he stayed down on the field for a few moments getting looked at by trainers. He walked off under his own power. Carroll said Reed aggravated a previous ankle injury but it wasnt serious.POSITION BATTLESVikings: RT Andre Smith played nearly the entire first half with the starting offense in his bid to hold off T.J. Clemmings for the starting job. Smith stayed mostly out of the spotlight with the exception of a holding call that was declined.Seahawks: Mike Morgan started at strongside linebacker. Morgan has appeared to hold the edge in the competition as the most experienced option in Seattles system.INJURY UPDATEVikings: CB Xavier Rhodes left the game in the first quarter with a hamstring injury.Seahawks: RB Thomas Rawls did not play, but he did go through a full pregame warmup, the strongest sign that Rawls may be ready for the regular season. Rawls will get a full week of practice next week, Carroll said.QUOTABLEYou work hard throughout the week, at practice, preparing for games, Bridgewater said. So I wish I could have been out there.

Black Caviars daughter Oscietra has made an immediate impression in her first public appearance, winning a jump-out at Flemington as she builds towards a highly anticipated race debut. Davide Santon Jersey .The two-year-old filly, the first foal out of the champion mare who was undefeated in her 25 starts, flew out of the barriers in Fridays 800m hit-out to lead her trial and was never headed as she won the five-horse heat by about a length.I sort of expected her to do that, trainer David Hayes said.I would have been a bit disappointed if she came out and ran poorly.
