GREEN BAY, Wis. Youth Ducks Jerseys . -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers?spent significantly more time this week making sure his ailing left hamstring was strong than he did running through the plays for Sundays game against the Houston Texans.What Rodgers did in the portion of Thursdays practice that was open to reporters was the extent of his on-the-field work.?He took about half the drills during that 32-minute unit period.Aaron looked good, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. We had a set number of reps for him to take in the unit period. That went well. Then he focused on the rehab part of it. Everything went as expected.The Packers didnt practice Friday but will be on the field Saturday, when McCarthy indicated Rodgers could do a little more work.Were going to do more Saturday, McCarthy said. We basically had taken a period or two out of Thursdays practice and put it in Saturdays.Rodgers was officially listed as questionable for Sundays game.In the half-speed period Thursday, Rodgers threw mostly from the pocket, which is the norm for that drill. Backup Brett Hundley took the rest of the reps in what he called his most extensive in-season practice.Rodgers came up limping in the third quarter of Monday nights win over the Philadelphia Eagles. After trainers taped his left leg, he finished the game but did not scramble.The other area of concern for the Packers (5-6) is at linebacker. Clay Matthews (shoulder), Jake Ryan (ankle) and Blake Martinez (knee) all were limited so far this week. Of the three, Matthews, who separated his left shoulder on what he called a cheap shot block from Eagles lineman Allen Barbre, appeared to do the most during the open portion of practice.Looked good, same thing [as Rodgers], McCarthy said. Just in the portion of practice that you were in there for, the intensity didnt get much higher than that the rest of the way. He did everything. Jake Ryan did what he was supposed to do. Blake did more. So well see how he comes through today. Tomorrow will be key for all those guys. Cheap Ducks Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. Ducks Jerseys From China .

The first time Ian Bell played in a Lords final he had his whole career in front of him. Discount White Sox Jerseys . He was only 20 but he had long been tipped for greatness. And, as he caressed an unbeaten 65 - the only half-century of a match in which the players still wore whites - to win Warwickshire the 2002 Benson and Hedges Cup, it became clear to a wide audience that he was a special talent.He had been to the ground before. As an 11-year-old he ran on to the pitch - you could do that in those more innocent days - to celebrate Warwickshires 1993 NatWest final victory over Sussex. Asif Dins game. It was, Bell says now, the day I knew I wanted to play cricket. Not for England; for Warwickshire.He has been back to the ground many times. He is on the honours board four times (for Test centuries in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2013) and led Warwickshire to another trophy - both as captain and centurion - when he made 107 as his team defeated Somerset in the 2010 Clydesdale Bank 40. Nobody else in the side passed 30.Well leave it for another time to discuss whether he has achieved everything he promised in those early days. But surely all but the most churlish would agree that, after 118 Tests, 22 Test centuries, the Man of the Series award in the 2013 Ashes (as well as playing in four other winning Ashes teams) and 161 ODIs he can look back with pride on an excellent career. And, leaving the stats aside, how many England right-handers have timed the ball as sweetly? Bell has, at times, made batting look beautiful.But while much has changed - Do you remember when he had ginger hair? one of his team-mates jokes - his passion for representing Warwickshire has not. Other players might have fallen out of love with the county that gave them their first opportunity, but not Bell. He might well be the best cricketer this club has produced - he is almost certainly its most successful - but he admits he will take a moment on Saturday to look towards the grandstand where he sat with his family and remember how far he has come. It will not be an insignificant moment for him.He feels he has unfinished business, though. Not only does he hanker after an England recall (he would go to Bangladesh if asked), but he is desperate to revive the fortunes of a Warwickshire team that are, by their standards, enduring a pretty grim season.A grim season? Theyre in a Lords final!True. But they also failed to make the quarter-finals of the NatWest Blast and find themselves neck deep in the Championship relegation battle. For an experienced, well-resourced squad rated the best the club had ever had at the start of the season by their director of cricket, Dougie Brown, that is a bitter disappointment. Bell makes no attempt to hide it.Getting to Lords is a fantastic achievement, he says. But we have to take it on its own. It cant take away the need to improve. We cant paper over cracks. We need to talk very honestly. We need to sort a few things out.There are things that, without a shadow of a doubt, we have to address. There have been things going on that you cant talk about; things that were hopefully going to move forward with. Not getting through the group stages in T20 - especially having won five of our first six games; we then won one from six - was disappointing and it is the same in the Championship. At the halfway point, we were in the mix to win it. But we only have ourselves to blame for being in a relegation scrap now.Such disappointments will bring a review at the end of the season. The mumbles around Edgbaston somewhat harshly blame Brown - it is incredible how a spell as coach can ruin the reputation of a man viewed as a club legend a couple of years ago and it does appear his relationship with some senior players has soured - but Bell is having none of it.The players are the ones responsible, he says. Were a brilliant side on paper. I havent played in a Championship side this year when I would look at the opposition team and think were not a better team than them, but the problem is, you dont play on paper. Weve as good, if not a better, batting line-up than anyone in the country. But its not quite worked. And I count myself in that.You cross the line and you have to front up. The one thing we havent done this year is win key passages of play. I could make excuses about the weather: I could say we were four times in positions to win and the weather stopped us but I think that would be a cop-out. We havent been good enough.Are we doing the right things? Are we playing the right brand of cricket in four-day cricket? Are we talking the right language? Are we training hard enough and trying to get better? Those are the questions we have to ask ourselves and we have to do it straight away at the end of the season.Perhaps the biggest disappointment has been Bells own form. While he started the season with an innings of 174 at Hampshire, no further centuries followed. For one so gifted, his Championship average of 33.88 with only four scores over 50 is modest.There are some mitigating factors. Warwickshire have played on some pretty tricky batting surfaces in recent times - a score of 30 would have been good at times in the match against Yorkshire, Bell says - and there were games, earlier in the season, when rain thwarted them. It also appears that Bell, desperate to revive the fortunes of the team he loves, has been drawn into working on areas of the club - the academy, recruitment, even a membership drive in the early months of the year - that are usually beyond the remit of a captain. He makes no excuses, but you wonder if the demands of leading an increasingly divided dressing room have taken their toll.He has, he says, held meetings with Andrew Strauss twice in the last three weeks, as well as James Whitaker and Trevor Bayliss. But he has not scored the runs to persuade England to pick him. He will look out for the squad announcement on Friday more in hope than expectation.So, has it been frustrating to see his England hopes slip away? Its more frustrating that weve lost a couple of games that we should have won, he says. Ive tried not to think too much about England. Im averaging mid-30s. Im trying bloody hard to average 50. But its not been the case.Its difficult to know why. Out in the middle it feels pretty good. Its been challenging. Youve got to look inside yourself.My batting actually feels in a pretty good place. But, from an individual point of view - if Im going to play for England again - we havent really played on wickets that allow you to go out and get a big hundred.He has not given up, though. And whatever happens this winter - he is currently scheduled to play for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash - he is not going to give up. It wont dim my desire to play at all, he says. At our medicals the other day [centrally contracted players - Bell still is one - have medicals, performance reviews and fitness tests each September] I said, if they dont take me this winter, I still want to play for England. Whether thats next summer or the following winter, I will keep going. Unless they tell me the door is closed, I will keep trying to do it for as long as I can. I still want to play.But I completely admit that I cant sit here and say Ive bashed the door down enough to say pick me. Id love to have five hundreds and an average of 65 and say pick me, but I cant.My desire, my will, my training, everything is all geared up to playing for England. I have been through the highs and lows of wearing that England shirt and I know how hard you have to work. The rewards are massive, but also you have some really tough days.Theyve been very clear that the door is never shut. If it is not to be this winter, I will be working hard to come back again a better player. If I start the season well again next year I hope to give myself a chance. Theres an Ashes tour in a year and a half. Experience will be valuable there, and if I am playing as well as I can, hopefully I will be on that trip.When I left Sharjah [on Englands tour of the UAE], it didnt feel like it would be my last game of cricket. And I didnt want it to be my last. I didnt feel in a particularly good place. I was pretty fatigued. But once I came out of that environment, I still believed I had the hunger to play some more.I know not everyone gets the opportunity to go out in the best way. So I am not sat here in dream world, thinking about being paraded around the SCG. I know there are massive challenges ahead. So if they dont take me now I am not going to give up. I will keep trying as hard as I can until I get told: Weve moved on.Warwickshire approach the game with some tricky selection decisions to make. William Porterfield, an experienced international opening batsman, is available but may miss out as the club maintain the successful partnership between Jonathan Trott (who has made three centuries and a half-century in the competition this season) and Sam Hain (the highest run-scorer in the competition this season).Equally, while their policy of playing three spinners has served them well on the road to Lords, they may decide to alter it in mind of the 10.30am start and what appears to be a well-grassed pitch. While the Lords square looks unusually dry, it seems the MCC plan to use the pitch from the final in next weeks Championship match between Middlesex and Yorkshire. Keith Barker, the leading wicket-taker among seamers in Division One, could therefore come into the side in place of Josh Poysden or Ateeq Javid.Either way, Bell is determined to savour the day. He wants to inspire a new generation of players and supporters as he was once inspired by his Warwickshire heroes. Now aged 34 he knows he might not pass this way again. These moments are precious. And so are talents like Bells.

It has been rare this WNBA season for anyone to lasso the Los Angeles Sparks and rein them back in after theyve taken off. Jordan 11 Win Like 82 Pre Order . Theyre so talented an offensive team, with multiple weapons -- including league MVP Nneka Ogwumike -- that its difficult to string together just a couple of stops against them, let alone put the clamps on and force the Sparks into a relatively low-scoring game.And it seems rather unlikely that if any team was going to do that, it would be Chicago. If the Sky had outscored the Sparks in their Game 3 do-or-die matchup Sunday, that would have been less surprising. Even without Elena Delle Donne, nobody ever doubts that the Sky can score.But hold the Sparks to 66 points? After Los Angeles had scored 95 and 99 points in the first two games of their semifinal series? Force Tuesdays Game 4 (ESPN2, 8 p.m. ET) back at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois? Yep, the Sky did that.Chicagos season-saving 70-66 victory came largely thanks to its zone defense. Theoretically, it didnt seem as if it should have worked. The Sky had tried it earlier in the series, and it didnt stop the Sparks.But it was also the most strategically sensible thing to try again. Los Angeles post trio of Ogwumike, Candace Parker and Jantel Lavender had decimated the Sky in the first two games. And the Sparks interior strength was dominating early on in the third game, too.In fact, after the first quarter, when Los Angeles led 23-14, it was hard to picture the Sky taking control of the game. But they were physical and aggressive in the zone, and were able to force Los Angeles to do exactly what they wanted: go away from pounding the ball inside and take a ton of 3-pointers.The Sparks were a hideous 6 of 33 from behind the arc (18.2 percent). Had they come closer to their league-best 37.5 percent 3-point shooting in the regular season, then the Sparks would be home in Los Angeles now preparing to face Minnesota in the WNBA Finals.But kudos to the Sky for putting the Sparks in a position where they took more lower-percentage shots than they wanted to. The Sparks knew that was a trap they needed to avoid, but they fell into it anyway.Chicago had great leadership from point guard Courtney Vandersloot (17 points, five assists). Tamera Young and Jessica Breland each scored eight points and were strong defensively. The Sky got a big-time performance from rookie center Imani Boyette (13 points, 11 rebounds). And they had good work off the bench from center Clarissa Dos Santos and guard Jamierra Faulkner, who combined for 16 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.It was a case of a team saying, OK, we know most people expect us to lose, but were just not going down that easily. It wasnt necessarily the style of game you generally expect the Sky to win, yet it was exactly the kind they needed to play at this point in the series.By contrast, this was not at all what the Sparks wanted. Los Angeles Kristi Toliver was 3 of 12 from 3-point range, and Parker was 1 of 6 from behind the arc. Theyd be the first to say they didnt play up to their standards.The Sparks did not take Game 3 for granted. Even after they coasted to victory in Los Angeles on Friday night, the Sparks were aware that Sunday was going to be difficult. They fully expected the Sky to play very hard to stay alive. But the Sparks didnt expect theyd be held to fewer than 70 points.Los Angeles had Chicago pretty much on the ropes, but the Sky still had fight in them. And they will again Tuesday. The Sky should be proud of their resilience this season, no matter how this series ends.But the Sparks know what theyve done to win five of their six meetings with the Sky this season, all those by double digits. Thats what Los Angeles has to focus on Tuesday. Jordan 5 Retro Premium Bordeaux .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Andy Murray has decided to extend his stay in the Olympic athletes village to the end of the Games despite a growing number of problems emerging about security and facilities.The British Olympic Association (BOA) confirmed Friday that nine of its teams bags had gone missing after they transferred from their Belo Horizonte training camp to the village.Australian athletes have also had problems, with the reported theft of laptops and complaints about toilets and showers not working in their apartments.Murray, Britains flag bearer in Fridays opening ceremony, said earlier this year that he would stay outside the village to improve his chances of retaining his 2012 title.He had been persuaded to spend some time in the village by the BOA but had been thought likely to stay for no more than one or two days. The Scots management company told ESPN only this week that his commitment to living with the other 11,000-plus athletes and delegates in that area while at the Games was not guaranteed at that stage.But Team GB tennis coach Leon Smith, speaking before news of the bags going missing emerged, said: Everyone is in, Andy as well, and we are all soaking up as much of the atmosphere as possible.Team GB have done a lot of work on our block and we have everything we need here. We share living space with the other tennis players and have fun in the evening. Andy is in the village and the plan is for the whole time. Hes looking to stay.Murrays decision -- made before he was appointed team flag bearer -- was confirmed by the BOA, which spent 6 weeks improving facilities and ensuring there were no problems with its athletes quarters before the Games.The governing body, which had plumbers and other tradesmen on hand for work, has even helped out other less organised national associations, and its operation has been deemed a great success.A perimeter fence decorated with pictures of the team mascot, Pride the Lion, in a range of sporting poses, greets the athletes on their way in, and there are Union Flag deckchairs, a giant television screen and a table tennis table outside the block.There are also posters inside advising on which official kit to wear on which days, as well as social mediaa guidelines and, in addition to exercise cycles, red, white and blue Brompton folding bikes for the athletes to get around the large park area. Concord 11 Cheap. Security, however, is largely outside the BOAs control and problems have been reported in the village.A small number of bags -- nine from a total of nearly 3,000 pieces of luggage -- are currently unaccounted for following their transfer from Belo Horizonte to the Olympic Village in Rio, a statement from the BOA said.We are working hard to locate the bags as soon as possible. In the meantime all athletes continue to train as normal and are unaffected when it comes to training and competition wear. The focus of athletes involved is very much on the start of the Games and their own performances.The BOA said it was unclear whether the bags had been stolen or lost but the Games organising body, Rio 2016, has acknowledged there have been issues.A spokesman said: We are taking measures to reinforce security across the venue and will continue to gather feedback from the chef de missions through our daily meetings. We are greatly appreciative of the close cooperation and understanding of the delegations as we work together to resolve issues.Another potential downside for Murray could be the amount of attention he gets going to and from the accommodation, with other athletes wanting selfies and autographs.The Briton found himself delayed on his way to a media conference Thursday by members of the worlds press wanting pictures with him.Smith said: Everybody has been respectful and Andy cares about people. Thats why he is in the village, so he can be around the other athletes and spend time with them.Murray has been drawn to face Serbian Viktor Troicki in the first round and, despite not playing since winning Wimbledon, has impressed in practice.Andy is playing great tennis, is in great form and full of confidence, said Smith. He seems very happy and doesnt look rusty. This is a big focus point for him. Physically he looks in great shape, mentally hes in a really good place and he is hitting the ball well and moving well. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

DENVER -- The St. Yankees Jerseys Outlet . Louis Cardinals picked up a win before a pitch was even thrown when reserve outfielder Jose Martinez captured a playful, pregame staredown with Colorado reliever Carlos Estevez.Too bad for the Cardinals that didnt count in the standings. They sure couldve used it.Nolan Arenado hit a grand slam, German Marquez pitched five solid innings for his first major league win and the Rockies slowed the Cardinals playoff chase with an 11-1 victory on Wednesday.The Cardinals, who had won four straight, entered the day tied with New York and San Francisco atop the NL wild-card standings. The Mets and Giants both played later.Arenado broke open the game in the second with his NL-leading 39th homer of the season. His fourth career slam made it 6-1.Its a pitch that simply caught too much of the plate.Stayed straight, starter Luke Weaver said. For it to flatten out at such a big moment right there is disappointing.Weaver (1-4) was roughed up by the Rockies, surrendering seven hits and six runs in two innings. Before this game, the right-hander had allowed 12 earned runs in his last seven starts combined.The Cardinals had some early momentum when that standoff went their way just after the anthem.Heres how it unfolded: Estevez and Martinez stood near their dugouts -- with their baseball cap over their heart -- and refused to back down until the other moved first.Estevez blinked first and made a winner of Martinez, who celebrated before retreating to the dugout. Estevez said manager Walt Weiss pulled him in out of fear of being ejected.Its not fun to have one less bullpen guy, Estevez explained.Martinez was going to see this thing through to the end -- no matter the consequences.The umpire asked me, `Why you do that? Im like, `When youre a rookie and a big league guy asks you to stand up there, I stand up there, said Martinez, who had a pinch-hit single in the seventh. The most important thing is we have fun and the fans enjoyed it.This was a memorable day for Marquez (1-0), who made his first big league start after three appearances out of the bullpen. He allowed one run and struck out three.At 21 years, 212 days, Marquez was the second-youngest pitcher in Rockies history to earn his first win, the team announced. The youngest was Jamey Wright (21-206).A great pitching performance from the kid today, Weiss said. Its easy -- easy velocity. Very effortless.The hard-throwing Marquez was acquired in January as part of the deal that sent outfielder Corey Dickerson to Tampa Bay. Marquez pitched a majority of the season for Double-A Hartford, where he was chosen as the pitcher of the year in the Eastern League.Marquez worked his way out of several dicey situations against the best road team in baseball. He allowed his only run in the second, when Jeremy Hazelbaker led off with a double and later scored on Kolten Wongs sacrifice fly.The Cardinals took two of three from Colorado during a series in which their starting pitchers were brilliant at the plate. Carlos Martinez, Adam Wainwright and Weaver went a combined 4 for 4 with two doubles and six RBI. Weaver had a single in his only plate appearance.DJ LeMahieu got two hits and drove in two runs to raise his average to .351. He holds a slight lead over Washingtons Daniel Murphy in the NL batting race.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: OF Matt Holliday (broken right thumb) is hoping to take live batting practice Friday at Wrigley Field before the Chicago Cubs series. ...

Formula Ones race stewards are considering a system which would allow them to review previous races to improve the consistency of decisions.The 2016 season saw the consistency of penalties called into question by many of the drivers on the grid, with punishments seeming to vary from race to race. At an FIA meeting in Vienna this week the stewards agreed that is a key issue to address going into next season.We went through a lot of rules and looked at how we can work with the FIA to tidy up the wording, enabling us to take quicker decisions, stewards chairman Garry Connelly said. We talked a lot about how we can achieve better consistency.We think that more meetings and more reviews of past decisions are necessary, so that we all understand how each panel of stewards is treating a particular situation, especially where its necessary for the stewards to make a subjective ruling, on a dangerous driving charge for example. That is quite a subjective issue.These are obviously decisions that are made collectively but understanding how those decisions can be made more consistent is valuable.One way of achieving this appears to be regular video conferences to evaluate decisions made at previous races, a system used by Germanys governing body, Deutscher Motor Sport Bund, ?tto ensure greater consistency in future decisions. Wholesale Coyotes Jerseys. The stewards get together by video link to look back at incidents and discuss the decisions made. We thought that might be good thing to do every three or four races.The Mexican Grand Prix was one of the more controversial of the season, with Lewis Hamilton escaping a penalty for going across the first chicane at the start, only for Max Verstappen to get a time penalty for doing the same towards the end of the race. In that instance, Hamilton was judged not to have gained a lasting advantage.Connelly suggests one way around this sort of confusion in future is to ensure circuits modify corners in a way which punishes drivers for making mistakes, taking the decision out of the stewards hands.The point we also made is that the rules say a driver can rejoin the track as long as you do it safely and gain no lasting advantage.The word lasting is again very subjective. Does it mean lasting for 500m, until the next turn, the next few laps or the whole race?That subjectivity is removed if the circuit is modified or designed to immediately disadvantage a driver if he does go off track. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Negotiations have been dragging on for unified middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin to face secondary titlist Daniel Jacobs. Authentic Blue Jays Jerseys . On Tuesday,?the camps pulled the plug on any hope of the fight to take place on the planned date of Dec. 10.While they still hope to make a deal for the bout to be in early 2017, the absence of it on Dec. 10 left a gaping hole in HBOs fourth-quarter schedule, but it is one that unified junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford is all too happy to fill.Once Golovkin-Jacobs was off the networks schedule, HBO was suddenly left with an available date and a seven-figure chunk of money that had been earmarked for the card. Crawford, who had wanted to fight three times this year, was scheduled for?only two bouts because there were no available HBO dates or money left. Now he is likely to get his third bout of 2016.Plans quickly went into motion once GGG-Jacobs was a no-go.?Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told ESPN on Thursday that he and HBO are working to put together a Crawford fight to take place Dec. 10.Were hoping to get it done and hoping to get a good opponent, Arum said. Were working on Dec. 10 for Crawford, but we and HBO only want to do it if its a significant fight.Arum did not want to dive into the?details on the opponent because there is no deal yet. Its typical for promoters to keep their desired opponent under wraps, because?once the details are out, suddenly their price goes up when the opponent hears they are being considered.Crawfords team and HBO would likely accept world titleholder Eduard Troyanovsky (25-0, 22 KOs), 36, of Russia, or Antonio Orozco (25-0, 16 KOs), 28, of San Diego. Orozco is one of Crawfords mandatory challengers and has previously appeared on HBO.We had a date on HBO in January, and they asked us if Crawford could move to December once they lost the Golovkin fight, and Crawford was OK with that, Arum said.Arum said he hopes to put on the fight at the CenturyLink Center in Crawfords hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. The arena is already booked with a Creighton University mens basketball game on Dec. 10, but Arum said he is talking to the school about possibly moving the game to the following day in order to accommodate the fight.Well see what happens. Were talking to them about trying to clear the date, Arum said. If they cant do it, well have to look to see where else we can go, but Terence is a great draw in Omaha.The 29-year-old Crawford (29-0, 20 KOs), who was the 2014 fighter of the year, vacated his lightweight world title in 2015 and moved up to junior welterweight. He knocked out Thomas Dulorme in the sixth round to win a vacant title.Crawford has defended the title three times, including a dominant decision victory against Viktor Postol on July 23 in Las Vegas to unify two belts in fight between the boxers widely considered Nos. 1 and 2 in the weight division.There was disappointment in the Crawford camp when it seemed as though he would not fight again this year, but now there is excitement for the potential Dec. 10 bout, according to Cameron Dunkin, Crawfords co-manager.He wants to fight, Dunkin said. He down (in San Juan, Puerto Rico) for the WBO convention and he ran into (Top Rank vice president) Carl Moretti and said he is ready to go. So he wants to fight. Right now its about getting an opponent and working out the money with everyone. Terence has never been a guy who doesnt want to fight. Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. Womens Blue Jays Jerseys . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. On the first Saturday of November, the College Football Playoff contenders started to separate themselves from everyone else.No. 2 Clemson beat Syracuse by 54 points.No. 3 Michigan throttled Maryland by 56 points.No. 5 Washington routed California by 39 points.No. 6 Ohio State blasted No. 10 Nebraska by 59 points.Perhaps none of those performances were as impressive as No. 1 Alabamas 10-0 victory over No. 13 LSU at Tiger Stadium.Unless you really love defense, Alabamas 21st consecutive victory -- and its 13th straight over a ranked opponent -- hardly resembled a classic. The game remained scoreless through three quarters, and according to ESPN Stats & Info research, the 10 points combined were the fewest in an AP top-15 matchup in the past 30 seasons.You can talk about winning ugly and maybe it wasnt always pretty, because we certainly didnt execute and do things the way wed like, but youve got to give LSU a lot of credit, Alabama coach Nick Saban said. It was a tough atmosphere for us out there. But our defense was outstanding.If you had any doubts about whether this is Sabans best defense, Alabama probably answered those concerns against LSU. The Crimson Tide manhandled the Tigers, allowing six first downs and 125 yards of offense, including only 25 after halftime. Six Alabama players combined for five sacks.LSU star running back?Leonard Fournette, who ran for 284 yards against Ole Miss in his return from an injured ankle two weeks ago, ran 17 times for 35 yards against Alabama. During the past two seasons, Fournette has averaged 1.85 yards per carry against the Crimson Tide and 7.45 yards against everyone else.Weve got some pretty hateful guys that play defense around here that are pretty good competitors, Saban said. When they get challenged a little bit, they usually respond, and I think they responded really well tonight.On a day when two of the SECs other playoff contenders lost on the road against unranked teams -- No. 4 Texas A&M fell 35-28 at Mississippi State, and No. 11 Florida lost 31-10 at Arkansas -- the Crimson Tide once again looked head and shoulders above everyone else in their league, if not in the nation.The Tide still have to win home games against Mississippi State next weekend and then No. 9 Auburn in the Nov. 26 Iron Bowl to win the SEC West (theres also a game against FCS foe Chattanooga in between), but theyll be heavy favorites in those games. If Alabama wins out, it will face an even bigger underdog from the SEC East in the conference championship game in Atlanta.With a month left to play, the end of the 2016 season is starting to look a lot like how last season ended: with Alabama on top.What about the Tides top competition?If any team looks capable of contending with Alabama, its No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Michigan.The Tigers shut out Syracuse 54-0 at Death Valley in what was their most efficient performance of the season. Even more impressive: Star quarterback Deshaun Watson missed the second half with a bruised shoulder.Our guys were just locked in, and it was a crisp day all the way for four quarters, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. Weve done that at times, but not consistently for four quarters. This was a great way to start the month of November.How impressive were the Tigers? Ask Syracuse coach Dino Babers, whose Orange lost to Louisville 62-28 on Sept. 9.I think [Cardinals quarterback]?Lamar Jackson is one of the best players Ive ever seen, Babers said, and I think Clemson is one of the best teams Ive ever seen.Meanwhile, Michigan steamrolled Maryland 59-3 at the Big House, scoring touchdowns on each of its five first-half possessions. Wolverines quarterback Wilton Speight threw for 292 yards on 13-for-16 passing in the first half and finished with a career-high 362 yards with three touchdowns (two passing and one rushing).Thats the best half of football Ive ever seen a Michigan quarterback play, said coach Jim Harbaugh, who was a Wolverines quarterback himself.Louisville, Ohio State turn on style points to stay within striking distanceMemo to Louisvilles future opponents: Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino might be looking to hang 100 points on you.The Cardinals dismantled Boston College 52-7 on the road, and Heisman Trophy favorite Jackson stayed in the game until late in the third quarter, long after the outcome was decided.Petrino made no apologies, saying the Cardinals might have to blow out their final three regular-season opponents to impress the committee if theyre going to have a chance of climbing into the top four.I guess we do, Petrino said. Its sad because theres something called sportsmanship, but maybe I made a mistake. Maybe looking back at it, in Florida State, we should have kept all the starters in and scored 80 points and did that.The Cardinals 63-20 win over the Seminoles on Sept. 17 was one of the more impressive victories of the season. While FSU has a winning record, the other seven teams the Cardinals beat are a combined 23-40. Louisvilles last three regular-season opponents (Wake Forest, Houston and Kentucky) currently have winning records.Not to be outdone, No. 6 Ohio State blasted No. 10 Nebraska 62-3 at the Horseshoe, handing the Cornhuskers their most lopsided defeat since 2004. The Buckeyes will have more opportunities to pile up points in consecutive road games at Maryland and reeling Michigan State. On Nov. 26, Ohio State will close the regular season against No. 3 Michigan at home.In a radio interview with College GameDay on ESPN Radio on Saturday, Texas Tech athletic director and CFP selection committee chair Kirby Hocutt said the committee doesnt take margin of victory into consideration when weighing playoff candidates.We look at performance on the field, but we do not incent the margin of victory, Hocutt said. We do not talk about that in our committee room. Louisville is a very strong team, very impressive win against Florida State earlier this season. They continue to win. Their schedule, as we talked about it last week, was just not as strong as others that they were being compared against up to this point of time in the season.Baylor blackout is another black eye for the BearsIt was hard to figure out which was worse: No. 17 Baylors woeful performance in a 62-22 loss to rival TCU, or the disgraceful drama surrounding it.On Friday night, Baylors assistant coaches released a statement on Twitter?in which they defended former coach Art Briles and disputed the schools Board of Regents claims that he didnt do enough when told of an alleged gang rape involving his players in 2011.After Saturdays loss, Baylor acting coach Jim Grobe said he was unaware of his assistants plans until after the statement was tweeted. But Grobe also said he wouldnt step in the way when the coaches wanted their perspective known.A lot of distractions dont help, Grobe said. This is a game you really got to spend all your focus on for 12 games during the season to play well, and if you dont, this is what happens.After winning their first six games under Grobe, the Bears have dropped two straight, and their season suddenly seems to be spinning out of control. Their season has seemed awkward from the start, especially after the university elected to keep Briles staff intact, including his son Kendal Briles and son-in-law Jeff Lebby.The ongoing feud between Baylors regents and Briles defenders, who want specific reasons as to why the popular coach was fired, only seems to be getting worse. Before Saturdays game, vendors were selling black T-shirts that included the hashtag #CAB, which stands for Coach Art Briles. Blue Jays Jerseys Outlet. . A banner with the same hashtag also hung from a luxury suite at McLane Stadium.At this point, Baylor might want to consider self-imposing a postseason ban, which might rob its seniors of one more game but would put an end to what is becoming a very uncomfortable split with the Briles regime.Playoff teams after Week 101. Alabama: The Crimson Tide found just enough offense in a 10-0 win at LSU. It was Alabamas sixth consecutive victory over the Tigers, who were shut out at home for the first time since 2002. Alabamas defense allowed only six first downs and 125 yards of offense, including only 33 rushing on 27 carries.2. Clemson: The Tigers improved to 9-0 for the second straight season with a 54-0 shutout of Syracuse at Death Valley. It was the Tigers first shutout since beating Miami 58-0 last season and the first time Syracuse was held scoreless since a 56-0 loss to Georgia Tech in 2013. The Tigers can clinch the ACC Atlantic with a win over Pitt next week.3. Michigan: The Wolverines remained in cruise control in a 59-3 blowout of Maryland at the Big House. It was Michigans third 50-point win of the season; former UM coaches Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke managed three 50-point wins in seven seasons combined from 2008 to 14.?Michigan plays at Iowa next week in what might be its biggest test before its Nov. 26 finale at Ohio State.4. Washington: The Huskies rolled on the road, beating Cal 66-27 for their 12th straight win, the second-longest active FBS streak behind Alabama. Receivers John Ross III and Dante Pettis combined for 312 receiving yards and six touchdowns, and Washington intercepted Bears QB Davis Webb three times. Will it be enough to move up to No. 4 in the next CFP rankings??Next four in contention1. Ohio State: The Buckeyes rebounded from back-to-back mediocre offensive performances by piling up 590 yards of offense and 34 first downs in a 62-3 rout of No. 10 Nebraska. Quarterback J.T. Barrett completed 26 of 38 passes for 290 yards with four touchdowns. OSUs defense returned an interception for a touchdown for the fifth time this season to set a school record, then added another one in the third quarter.2. Louisville: After closer-than-expected victories over heavy underdogs Duke and Virginia, the Cardinals had no problems jumping on Boston College in a 52-7 victory on the road. Quarterback Lamar Jackson ran for a 69-yard touchdown on the third play of the game and threw a 30-yard touchdown to James Quick on his eighth play. Game over.3. Wisconsin: After beating Nebraska in overtime last week to stay in the Big Ten West race, the Badgers ended a four-game losing streak against Northwestern at Ryan Field with a 21-7 victory. Wisconsin had lost six of 10 games against the Wildcats, but pushed them around this time. Badgers tailback Corey Clement ran for 106 yards with one touchdown.4. Auburn: The Tigers narrowly defeated Vanderbilt 23-16 at home, but Auburn now has a direct path to the SEC championship game following Texas A&Ms loss. If the Tigers win at Georgia next week and beat Alabama on the road in the Nov. 26 Iron Bowl, theyll win the SEC West. The bad news: Star tailback Kamryn Pettway appeared to pull his left hamstring on a late 60-yard run.Heisman candidates1. Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville: Hand him the Heisman? Jackson accounted for seven more touchdowns (four passing, three rushing) in the Cardinals 52-7 win at Boston College, giving him 45 this season, which is only two shy of the ACC record set by Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson?in 2015-16. Jackson completed 12 of 17 passes for 231 yards while running 15 times for 185 yards.2. Jake Browning, QB, Washington: Browning completed 19 of 28 passes for 378 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions. He set a new single-season record for passing touchdowns, breaking Keith Prices record set in 2011.?3. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson: Watson threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, but then injured his right shoulder late in the first half of a 54-0 rout of Syracuse. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said the injury wasnt serious, and the school announced Watson could have played in the second half if needed. Watson completed 13 of 16 passes for 169 yards and ran seven times for 39 yards.4.?DOnta Foreman, RB, Texas: Foreman ran 33 times for 341 yards with three touchdowns in the Longhorns 45-37 victory at Texas Tech, which is the third-highest total in UT history and only 9 yards shy of the single-game record of 350 set by Ricky Williams in 1996. Foreman has run for at least 100 yards in each of his eight games this season, and he has 591 yards with five scores in the past two games.Best momentsTweets of the nightBest playsWorst playsQuotes of the night1. After how hard my team worked for me all day, there was no way I wasnt going to score that for them. The offensive line played fantastic today. I couldnt have asked for anything more from them. Our running backs were running extremely hard, reading the blocks. We knew we could run the ball. -- Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, on his 4-yard touchdown run with 3:08 left, which helped seal the Bulldogs upset of No. 4 Texas A&M.2. It happens organically. Its au naturel. -- Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, when asked if hes forcing star Jabrill Peppers expanded role on offense3. Really disappointed with the way we played. Didnt do a very good job as coaches evidently getting them ready to play. We played about as poorly as you can play on defense, and we werent much better on offense or special teams. -- Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson, after the Yellow Jackets allowed 623 yards of offense in a 48-20 loss at North Carolina.4. I saw my guy go to the flats and I saw [Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur] pat the ball one too many times, and I just felt something was going to be behind me. My instincts took me to the ball. -- Auburn cornerback Josh Holsey, on his game-clinching interception in the Tigers 23-16 win.Stats that matter6: Notre Dame had six offensive possessions -- four in the first half and two in the second -- in its 28-27 loss to Navy. It was the fewest possessions by an FBS team since Northern Illinois had six against the Midshipmen in 2008, according to ESPN Stats & Info research. The Irish are 3-6, their worst start since losing eight of their first nine games en route to a 3-9 finish in 2007.3: Three SEC players have accounted for 200 passing yards and 175 rushing in a game in the past 10 seasons. Heisman Trophy winners Cam Newton of Auburn and Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M did it once and twice, respectively, and Mississippi States Nick Fitzgerald became the third to do it in the Bulldogs 35-28 upset of the No. 4 Aggies. He had 209 passing yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, while running 20 times for 182 yards with two scores.16: Stanfords Christian McCaffrey ran for 199 yards in a 26-15 win over Oregon State, his 16th 100-yard game since the start of the 2015 season. His total is tied with San Diego States Donnel Pumphrey for most in the FBS the past two seasons, and McCaffrey is tied with Darrin Nelson for third most in Stanford history.20: Air Force won the Commander-in-Chiefs Trophy for the second time in three years with a 31-12 victory at Army. The Falcons have now claimed the CIC Trophy a whopping 20 times, which is only one fewer than Army and Navy have combined to win. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Marcus Foster hopped on the fast train to fame, riding it for all it was worth from the first stop of high school obscurity all the way to the best Kansas State freshman since Michael Beasley hyperbolic platform. Discount White Sox Jerseys .Two-plus years and one school change later, Foster doesnt look back and ask, What happened?Theres no need. He knows exactly how his career went off the tracks. He steered it there.I got cocky. I thought I had it, he said.Sadly, his is not an uncommon story. The zero-to-fame acceleration has ruined more than a few people in more than a few walks of life.Foster is just hoping for an uncommon ending.Its not about redeeming himself, or anything so simple or trite. Because Foster doesnt feel compelled to prove hes changed to outsiders.He has a much bigger challenge in mind.He wants to show himself.I want to get better, he said, as a basketball player, but also as a person.Frankly, Foster is right. He did have it as a freshman.And no one saw it coming.When Bruce Weber first spied Foster on the summer league scene, the Kansas State coach saw a blue-collar worker who mixed in on a team full of like-minded players. Foster was relatively unheralded, a top-150 recruit but not even top 10 in his home state of Texas. Weber thought hed be good but not otherworldly good. When Foster arrived at Kansas State, he lived in the gym and in the weight room, working with such a vengeance that Weber started raising his own expectations, envisioning a player who could score upward of 20 points per game.I remember after one of our early games, a coach asked me about him, and then it was just boom! And he kind of burst on the scene, Weber said.Foster scored 25 points in the second game of his college career and continued on a double-figures pace throughout his freshman season. In 33 games, he failed to reach double figures only six times. He scored 34 against Texas, dropped 29 against Baylor, connected on 79 3-pointers for the season and finished the year with 513 points.The following summer, Creighton coach Greg McDermott saw Foster at the LeBron James Skills Academy. McDermott had recruited Foster hard out of high school, ultimately finishing as the runner-up to Kansas State and Weber. He knew Foster well, but the kid he saw working as a counselor that summer wasnt the same one hed recruited. He phoned assistant Steve Lutz, who had developed a great relationship with Foster during this recruitment.I said, Im worried about Marcus, McDermott said. He looks like he thinks hes arrived.Weber had the same fears. The same kid he couldnt get out of the gym as a freshman didnt spend nearly as much time working on his game leading into his sophomore season.The coach and star player butted heads throughout the season, Foster appearing sullen and downright pouty at times. A two-game benching temporarily rejuvenated him into a better version of himself, but by February, things were on the skids again. Weber suspended his best player for three games, and by the end of the season decided to sever ties altogether.Foster was dismissed from the team.He just didnt take care of business, Weber said. Ive been at this a long time ... second chances, third chances, fourth chances, whatever I can do, I do. But he needed to learn how to take care of business.Foster admits at first he was bitter, placing the blame more at Webers feet than at the man in the mirror. With his career and reputation in tatters, Foster reconsidered who really was to blame, recognizing that he had blown his chance at success.You go from high school and nobody is talking about you, to all of a sudden youre on SportsCenter and everybody is talking to you, he said. It went to my head and I didnt handle it right.In desperate need of a second chance, Foster called the coach who recruited him during his sophomore season in high school. At the same time, Fosters mother, Alvita, called McDermott as well.I want my son back, she told him.McDermott continued the phone chain, calling Weber to make sure McDermott understood all that went on at Kansas State, and also as a professional courtesy since he was considering bringing Foster to Creighton.I liked him, Weber told McDermott. I didnt like what he had become.Armed with his own gut feeling for the kid he had known for years, and with as much new information as he could gather on the person Foster had become, McDermott decided to roll the dice.I knew exactly what I was getting myself into, he said. And I decided it was worth the risk.Maurice Watson Jr. knows a thing or two about feeling out of place. After two years at Boston University, the guard transferred to Creighton, bringing his Philadelphia attitude into the Midwestern heart of Omaha, Nebraska. The two didnt necessarily jibe.Watson didnt have basketball to close the gap, either, since he had to sit out a full season under NCAA transfer rules. Then he was sidelined by a broken foot.So when Foster arrived at Creighton, Watson offered two things to his soon-to-be backcourt mate: advice and a clean slate.I didnt want him to think I was going to judge him on what I heard or word of mouth, Watson said. People here will accept you with open arms, but youve got earn it. I also told him that second chances dont come around a whole lot.Foster heeded that advice, using his transfer year on the sideline not just to work on his game but also to readjust his attitude. Determined not to be a burden to either his coaching staff or his teammates, he shut out the other voices who had crammed their way into his head, the ones telling him he was NBA-ready before he had really become college-savvy.He went back to what made him so good as a freshman, chasing basketball with a fervor again. When he arrived on Creightons campus, his body fat had ballooned to 16 percent. Foster had quite literally become fat and happy with his success.Now its down to 8 percent.I realized, just like people can tell you that youre a good player, they very quickly will tell you when youre not good, he said. I had success and then I didnt. You have to work to hold on to it.Weber isnt angry.As his former player continues to rediscover his groove at Creighton, Weber is more philosophical than disappointed.There are a lot of different paths for a lot of kids, he said. If my decision helps him in the long run to get his head right and do what hes supposed to, then I couldnt be happier for Marcus.It certainly looks to be case.The numbers are familiar, to be sure. Foster is averaging 19.4 points per game for 10th-ranked Creighton (8-0), two 15-point nights against Wisconsin and NC State marking his season lows. Hes shooting 51 percent from the floor and 43 percent on 3s, and hes the first player in 30 years to score 15 or more points in each of Creightons first eight games.Yeah, that includes a fella by the name of Doug McDermott.Then theres this:Just the other day, Foster pulled freshman Justin Patton aside. The freshman is averaging 12.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game and twice has earned Big East Rookie of the Week honors. Hes also an Omaha native, and the city loves its Bluejays, so Patton especially is getting a lot of attention.Hes doing even better early on as a freshman than I did, Foster said. I told him, Whatever you do, dont let it go to your head. Youth White Sox Jerseys .

LEXINGTON, S. Pete Maravich Jersey .C. -- A South Carolina high school football player has died after collapsing at practice, Lexington County officials confirmed Thursday.Coroner Helen Fisher said Lewis N. Simpkins, 14, of Lexington, was pronounced dead Wednesday night at Lexington Medical Center.An autopsy was performed Thursday, but Fisher said further studies would have to be conducted to determine the exact cause of Simpkins death.Simpkins was a sophomore defensive tackle at River Bluff High School and fell to the ground near the end of a two-hour practice.Two athletic trainers and an assistant coach began CPR and used a defibrillator while awaiting paramedics, Mary Beth Hill, a spokeswoman for Lexington District One, said in a statement.Players took water breaks every 15 to 20 minutes and water hoses and coolers were available at all times, Hill said.The district is working today to provide services to students and staff, she said.School officials were keeping reporters off campus Thursday.The school was opening its cafe Thursday afternoon to give students a chance to meet with counselors and psychologists.Hill said the team was not practicing Thursday but would gather so players, coaches and trainers would share their feelings and support each other.The team canceled its participation in a pre-season scrimmage Friday night.Other schools in central South Carolina included messages of support on Facebook and Twitter messages.It was a joy to coach Lewis. Such a bright, talented young man. Well all miss his smile.

Reigning USA Track and Field steeplechase outdoor champion Emma Coburn wants people to know one thing: Runners are strong too. Duane Kuiper Jersey .I think a lot of long distance runners look lean and they look fragile, but I think a lot of runners are much stronger than people give them credit for -- and are much better athletes than they are given credit for, said Coburn. We do functional movement testing -- and thats not strength, but again, how you move. The score is out of 21, and I scored a 20 on it. Thats just all-around movement and all-around strength and flexibility.The two-time NCAA 3,000-meter steeplechase outdoor champion and 2016 Rio Olympian?sat down with ESPN The Magazine for the 2016 Body Issue to talk about how running one of the longest track and field events helps her stay fit and to remember her roots.Lifelong preparationCoburn credits growing up in the mountainous town of Crested Butte, Colorado, for making her into the athlete she is today.I think physically having a diverse athletic background has helped me become a stronger runner, in terms of muscular development and coordination.People write all the time about the physical and mental benefits of not specializing in a sport too young because you dont burn out. I was happy to not really take running too seriously as my No. 1 sport until my junior year of high school -- and even then, I still competed in other sports.An all-around healthy bodyThe steeplechase is a 3,000-meter run that involves four barrier jumps over 4x4 blocks of wood and seven water jumps over a 10-foot water pit.Unlike some sports, where leg or arm strength is necessary for success, total body strength is the key to success in the steeplechase.Im happy that my sport and event encourages a well-rounded, healthy body. We have to be strong to be able to go over the barriers, but we also have to be lean.TrainingCoburns training is filled with variety, but there are a few things she does almost every day.Daily runsNot a day goes by that Coburn is not running.

NEW YORK -- Lengthy medical updates have become a part of Mets manager Terry Collins daily routine. Tim Anderson Jersey .Not exactly what New York needs during its final push for a return to the postseason, but thats the reality facing the reigning NL champions.Collins was at least able to provide a bit of good news after his teams 10-8 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.Although he was unable to making his scheduled start Saturday because of strep throat, ace Noah Syndergaard threw a bullpen, and Collins said his All-Star pitcher would pitch instead Tuesday against Miami.It went great, Collins said. Were going to go with him on Tuesday. He did tell me that even during his workout, he felt just a little fatigued, so I thought one more day trying to get him some nourishment in him would help.The Mets used 16 pitchers during the first two games with the Phillies, including Friday after left-hander Steven Matz was scratched, and then had to exhaust the bullpen again Saturday when Sean Gilmartin allowed five runs before departing with two outs in the first inning.The Mets are tied with San Francisco for the two NL wild-card spots. St. Louis is a half-game back.While Syndergaard is returning on Tuesday, Collins wasnt as optimistic for Matz.Doctors again examined Matz, and Collins said an MRI came back clean on the young left-handers troubled shoulder. However, the manager made no mention of when, or if, Matz would throw again this season. If Matz does return, Collins wasnt sure if hed be able to find a start for him over the seasons final week.Right now, it might be, if hes able to pitch, we put him in the `pen and see if we can get him an inning here and an inning there, he said. But where we are, Im not sure where were going to get him in.Collins also said Wilmer Flores could miss the remainder of the regular season. He injured his wrist in a home-plate collision on Sept. 10 in Atlanta. Hes received two cortisone injections but shown little improvement and has not taken batting practice.Not close to hitting, Collins said.Flores said he visited a doctor Friday and was instructed to give his ailing wrist a little more time.I want to be healthy, Flores said. Im the first guy that wants to be out there helping the team. Its just frustrating. I want to tough it out, but its something that I dont want to hurt the team and hurt myself by doing that.While Flores remains out, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was in Saturdays lineup, one day after fouling a ball off his left knee. Collins said Friday night he might give Cabrera the next day off, but the infielder talked his way into the lineup.He just came in today and said `Im in there, Collins said. Were on a mission and he knows hes playing good and knows hes swinging the bat great and knows he needs to be in there.The good news for Collins and the Mets is Cabrera is just dealing with a bruise, something unrelated to the strained patellar tendon hes battled in his left knee.This is a bruise, not like the other knee issue he has. When that one flares up, were in trouble, Collins said. Bobby Jenks Jersey .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Derek Holland Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. ST. LOUIS -- Jaime Garcias recent woes continued and so did the St. Louis Cardinals season-long struggles at home.Garcia gave up a three-run homer to Stephen Vogt in the third, a two-run shot to Khris Davis in the first and the Cardinals lost 7-4 to the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.St. Louis dropped two of three to the Athletics and the Mets on the homestand and has won only one of its past five series at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals own the majors best road record (38-34) but fell to 30-37 at home.Every game we dont win, there is a level of frustration, doesnt matter home or road, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.Garcia, who worked four scoreless innings after the Athletics took a 5-1 lead, has allowed 16 runs in 16 innings over his past three starts. He has served up seven homers in those outings after giving up six in his first 13. Both homers against the Athletics came with two out.Weve seen it a few times where he gets some quick outs and something happens and it rolls out of control for a little while, Matheny said.You make mistakes and stuff happens fast, Garcia said. I need to do a better job.Rookie Andrew Triggs (1-1) earned his first win in his fifth start, allowing three runs on four hits with no walks and eight strikeouts in six innings. Ryan Madson pitched the ninth for his 27th save in 33 chances.Triggs, who was called up from Triple A Nashville for the eighth time earlier this month, said about 15 family and friends made the trip from his hometown in Nashville to watch the game played with the temperature 92 degrees at first pitch.Once you get through those first couple of innings with that heat, youre maxed out in sweat so theres not much more you can do, Triggs said.Matt Carpenter doubled twice, homered and scored his teams first three runs to help the Cardinals close to 5-4 after seven innings. His homer in the third extended the Cardiinals streak to 17 games with a homer, matching their season best. Gordon Beckham Jersey. The Cardinals were hurt by reliever Zach Dukes error in the eighth. Duke failed to cleanly field Vogts grounder with a runner on third that led to a second run for Oakland in the inning. The typically strong defensive Cardinals rank among the worst fielding teams in the National League.Theres going to be some kind of narrative every year and this year thats the narrative and were going to find a way to prove that wrong, Carpenter said. September is a fun month, especially in St Louis. The weather starts to cool and typically we start to play really well and ride that into October. Hopefully that will be no different this year.Oaklands Ryon Healy doubled in the third to extend his hitting streak to 14 games, the longest active streak in the majors.St. Louis brought the tying run to the plate with one out against Madson but Randall Grichuk lined out to third and Greg Garcia flied to center for the final out.The Cardinals finished interleague play 1-8 at home and 8-12 overall. Oakland finished 7-13.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: INF Billy Butler (concussion) is expected to be cleared to return Monday.Cardinals: SS Aledmys Diaz (right thumb) will see a hand specialist Monday to determine when he could return.
