6 pitchers combine on 5-hitter, Rays beat Yankees 2-1

Posted on by

The high-powered New York Yankees were stymied by Tampa Bay’s relievers.

Six Tampa Bay pitchers combined on a five-hitter, and the Rays beat the New York Yankees 2-1 Friday night.

Utilizing a bullpen day, the Rays improved to 14-31 against teams with a .500 or better record with the victory over the team with the majors’ best record. New York is 40-5 when allowing four or fewer runs.

You just don’t limit that team to one run very often, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. So as far as piecing it together and guys coming in and doing their jobs, that’s probably as good as you can make it.

The Rays wasted a chance to extend the lead in the sixth when Johnny Field struck out on a failed third-strike bunt attempt with two on and Matt Duffy hit a two-out grounder with the bases loaded to complete a 12-pitch at-bat against Adam Warren.

That was on me, poor communication on my part., Cash of the Field strikeout. That’s not how we drew it up. I didn’t take it off. I made the mistake.

I have heard that you did not start as a pitcher. What other positions have you played?
Well, you know, it’s true. I started at 6 years old playing [in my hometown]. I remember watching my brothers growing up playing baseball and I wanted to do the same thing. I started playing the outfield first to get used to it. Then I went to shortstop — and a guy named Andrelton Simmons shows up [and] I moved to third base. We played with each other. He played shortstop, and then I was at third, and then I moved to first. Then, I finally become a catcher.

How tall were you when they switched you to being a catcher?
I was short. I wasn’t the taller guy that I am now in the team. The most that I [grew] is when I signed [at] 16 years old. I was 6-2, I remember, 178 [pounds]. Then, next thing you know, I was 6-5, 220. So, yeah, a lot of growing!

The transition from catcher to pitcher — had to be that arm.
Yes, it would definitely be the arm. I remember in the World Baseball Classic [in 2009], throwing out Willy Taveras at third in Puerto Rico. And then I showed how I could throw from my knees, throwing Ryan Braun out from my knees. And they see that. I had been doing that more in the minor leagues. That made the Dodgers make that decision to, you know, let’s just put him on the mound.

Lou Piniella ’embarrassed’ watching videos of his arguments with umpires

Posted on by

Lou Piniella attended the Yankees’ Old-Timers’ Day Sunday and it didn’t take long before someone asked him about the recently unearthed 2016 video showing http://www.lionsofficialfootballauthentic.com/Akeem_Spence_Jersey former Mets manager Terry Collins’ obscenity-filled rant with an umpire.
Women's Nike Golden State Warriors #23 Draymond Green Authentic White Hardwood Classics NBA Jersey
That’s because Piniella qualifies as something of an expert on manager tirades on the field. In his 23-year managerial career, Piniella was ejected 63 times.

But now, at age 74, Piniella has mellowed. Piniella told the Dennis Schroder Youth Jersey New York Daily News he’s embarrassed seeing images of his arguments with umpires.

The 6-foot-3, 311-pound rookie spent parts of minicamp and OTAs practicing with the first-team unit as he gets his feet wet in the NFL.

Stopping the run, getting to the quarterback, I feel like I can do it all, Hill said Thursday as the Giants wrapped up minicamp. Just out here practicing, you can see me moving around a lot. They got me playing D-end for a reason. They see I can move around and take on double teams.

Defensive coordinator James Bettcher said Wednesday that Hill has the potential to be a three-down back in his 3-4 defense. Hill admitted he has still got a long way to go, but is anxious to get back on the field and continue to compete.

I’m really impressed with how Josh has been able to grasp everything, Fitzgerald said of the former UCLA starter.

Everything Fitzgerald has done in his career has been impressive. He has one thing left to accomplish: Winning a championship.

Given the status of the NFC West, it may take more than a year or two for the Cardinals to get back to where they were a decade ago, when they were on the brink of beating the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII — which would have resulted in Fitzgerald undoubtedly being named the game’s MVP.

Neither Harrison nor Hernandez was made available to the media, but Solder tapped into his veteran http://www.officialhawkstore.com/Dennis_Schroder_Jersey leader role as he tried to put the kerfuffle behind them.

You know, what we gotta focus on is just getting better, said Solder, Akeem Spence Womens Jersey who signed a four-year, $62 million contract in March after seven seasons with the Patriots. We gotta play better football, we gotta be a strong unit on the offensive line, we gotta do what we control. Those things are battle, they happen, emotions rise. You work through it and you move on.

Nationals GM responds strongly to anonymous exec’s criticism of Bryce Harper

Posted on by

Bryce Harper was at the center of comments made by an anonymous National League executive, who called the Nationals slugger a losing player, but general manager Mike Rizzo was quick to come to his defense.
Youth Matt Murray Breakaway Black Fanatics Branded Jersey: NHL Pittsburgh Penguins #30 Home
The unnamed executive told FanRag Sports that Harper was overrated and a selfish, losing player. The exec added, among other comments: He’s simply overrated. The http://www.authenticpredatorstore.com/cody-hodgson-jersey_c-439.html good ain’t worth the bad. He’s a losing player. Cares about himself more than the team. If I was in charge and had money, my team would not pursue him. We would use that money to sign 2-3 winning players.

Rizzo didn’t stop there, though, as he went on to call the report yellow journalism and sensationalism.

It’s something that has to be talked about and exposed because otherwise if nobody says anything about it, it can’t go on, Rizzo said about the anonymous source. For another team’s executive if it happened, if it was said if another team’s executive to lambaste a player and denigrate this player’s ability level, his character, and Cody Hodgson Youth Jersey his integrity, and not have the balls to put his name on it is cowardly and chicken s—. And he should be exposed for it.

Colon can http://www.officialusahockeys.com/Usa_Paul_Martin_Jersey_Shirt.html achieve both on Tuesday night when he pitches for the Rangers against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

I feel very happy because I finally got my 243rd win, Colon told reporters (via MLB.com) after he tied Marichal on June 6. I tied this mark with a Hall of Famer, so I feel very proud and honored to do that. It means a lot because he’s Dominican. He was the first guy from the Dominican to become a Hall of Famer.

Entering Tuesday, Colon has taken a major league mound 550 times (539 starts) and thrown more than 52,000 pitches since his debut in 1997. With so many appearances, he was bound to rack up a number of weird, quirky statistics and records. Here’s a running list of the many interesting ones:

Before the Giants’ Brandon Belt battled the Angels’ Jaime Barria Womens Paul Martin Jersey for a 21-pitch at-bat this season, the record for most pitches in an at-bat was 20 between then-Indians pitcher Colon and the Astros’ Ricky Gutierrez in 1998.

Yankees’ Jonathan Loaisiga shines in win over Rays

Posted on by

The Evil Empire? Or is it the Evil Assembly Line?
Elite Women's Jake Rudock White Road Jersey: NFL Nike Detroit Lions #14 Vapor Untouchable
The Yankees grabbed yet another victory Friday — beating the Rays, 5-0, at Yankee Stadium — in what’s been a remarkable season.

Even more http://www.officialbluejayshop.com/authentic-46-brett-anderson-jersey.html incredible is that http://www.authenticmapleleafsstore.com/michael-grabner-jersey_c-450.html their player development system produced yet another talent that starred for them.

It’s not easy to get a new deal when you’re still on the hook for three more seasons. The solution for the Falcons may be to add a year or two to Jones’ contract that ups his annual average and locks him down for the foreseeable future. But the likelier outcome is that the team just waits for its star receiver to end his holdout without a new deal.

Oakland reshaped its roster in a big way four years ago when Khalil Mack, Derek Carr, and Gabe Jackson were picked by the Raiders in the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft. But for Mack, that meant waiting until the 2018 offseason to get a new contract.

Jackson signed a five-year, $56 million extension in June 2017 less than a week after Carr got a five-year, $125 million extension. That left the Raiders without much room to add money to Mack’s deal.

Behind the scenes, however, could be another matter.

Ravens safety Eric Weddle told reporters Wednesday that Flacco has enjoyed an outstanding offseason with crisp, deep Authentic Michael Grabner Jersey throws before providing perspective as a fellow veteran.

He’s obviously been challenged, Weddle said, via the Ravens’ official website. We all are. As older players, every year is a prove-it year, and if you don’t believe that, you’re fooling yourself. I have to prove that I can still start in this league, that I can compete, that I should be a starter, that I should be on this team. If you don’t, then you’re going to be out of here.

Now so with drafting Lamar and bringing Griffin in, it’s lit a fire under him. You can tell and he’s shown. He’s worked extremely hard.

Entering his 11th season, Flacco appears to have extra incentive to prove he is still the top quarterback in Baltimore a season after throwing for 3,141 yards and posting an 80.4 rating, both representing the third-lowest totals in a single season in his career.

With Flacco at the helm, the Ravens ‘ offense Brett Anderson Jersey sputtered in 2017, ranking 27th in the league in total offense.

Hall of Fame covers travel/lodging expenses, but not the inductee’s party

Posted on by

That theory regarding the real reason for the decision of receiver Terrell Owens to not show up for the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony may have some merit.

Zook said the elimination of the running start will be a benefit to returners and make teams more likely to bring the ball out, though it remains to be seen whether the changes solve the injury problem on the play. He also said he didn’t think the end result would be the extinction of the play, as some feel to be inevitable.

I don’t think they are trying to phase it out, Zook said. It’s an exciting play — but it is one that we have to make sure that we’re making it safer. And I think with all the engineering and all the things that they’re doing, they’re going to accomplish that.

Arizona has filled that roster spot and the vacancy in their backfield. Former Tulane running back Sherman Badie announced on Twitter that he’s signed with the team.

Badie ran 296 times for 1,517 yards and nine touchdowns and caught 56 passes for 419 yards and a touchdown over four collegiate seasons. He worked out for the Cowboys last month without landing a job.

David Johnson fronts the Cardinals running back group with T.J. Logan, D.J. Foster, Elijhaa Penny and 2018 fourth-round pick Chase Edmonds also in the mix for roster spots.

It’s official: The Colts announced Thursday that Andrew Luck is headed to injured reserve.

I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that’s not the case, Luck said. I know I’ll be better from this. I know I’ll be a better quarterback, teammate, person and player from this, and I’m excited for the future.

49ers working with NFL on ways to honor Dwight Clark’s memory

Posted on by

The 49ers will honor Dwight Clark’s memory this season.
Authentic Reebok Men's Daniel Sedin White Jersey - NHL #22 Vancouver Canucks 2012 All Star
They are working with the league to figure out exactly how to do that since NFL approval is required for helmet decals or changes to the field at Levi’s Stadium.

The 49ers are considering a marker in the end zone to approximate where Clark landed to complete The Catch, even though the play happened at Candlestick Park, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. They also could erect a memorial dedicated to Clark outside http://www.steelersnflofficialonline.com/Authentic-Mel-Blount-Jersey the stadium.

Jon Lester (L), 95 percent, Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates: If I’ve rostered Lester, I’m still running him out there in most Luis Aparicio Authentic Jersey formats. I’m not feeling great about it, though. Some red flags have popped up in his profile this season.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, Young will be in New York on Tuesday to workout for Knicks brass.

Mock drafts have been connecting Young, a scoring guard from Oklahoma, to the Knicks for months. With the sting of missing out on Steph Curry in 2009 still hurting the franchise, New York could select the shot-making point guard with the hopes of finding Curry 2.0. While the odds of Young turning out to be close to as good as the Warriors star are remote, Young does have the potential to be a big-time scorer on the pro level.

If Young landed in New York, a dynamic scoring one-two punch could form with big man Kristaps Porzingis. In time, the Knicks could have two long-range shooters with the ability to stretch the floor and make athletic wings look even better.

Stephen Curry and coach Steve Kerr’s Golden State Warriors http://www.officialwhitesoxproshop.com/Luis_Aparicio_Jersey have repeatedly said they want to build something special for the long haul, to compete for championships year after year.

Owens played 15 seasons in the NFL with the aforementioned teams, recording Mel Blount Youth Jersey 1,078 catches for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns in 219 games played. Owens spent his final NFL season with the Bengals before exiting the league after the 2010 campaign. He was selected for induction in his third year of eligibility.

Harper and the Nationals head to New York on Tuesday for a brief two-game interleague series.

Posted on by

I’m a National now, Harper told reporters May 15 when discussing his future. We’re going into the series trying to win some ballgames. That’s the only thing on my mind. Just trying to beat http://www.officialnflstoreco.com/new-york-jets-c-2375_2397.html a good team over there.
Adidas NHL Youth Derek Stepan Burgundy Red Home Premier Jersey - #21 Arizona Coyotes
Atlanta is 7-3 against New York this season and is off to its surprising start thanks to a 25-14 record against the rest of the NL East.

The Braves have http://www.footballsteelersofficialstore.com/Nike-Cameron-Heyward-Jersey.html played just 28 home games, but they have 12 of their next 14 at SunTrust Park.

Foltynewicz (5-4, 2.31 ERA) had the best game of his career in his Womens Cameron Heyward Jersey most recent start in Atlanta, pitching a two-hit shutout against the Nationals on June 1 while striking out 11 and walking one.

When he is locked in, he can be a top pitcher, catcher Tyler Flowers said afterward. He has electric stuff. Now he has to keep putting it together.

Foltynewicz was 3-1 with a 0.56 ERA in a five-start stretch after blanking Washington, but he struggled with location through five innings in a loss at San Diego on Wednesday to show that his consistency isn’t quite there yet.

Four cheerleaders and their attorney, Gloria Allred, delivered the letter to NFL headquarters in Manhattan. The cheerleaders, who filed suit against the Texans last week alleging unequal pay and unfair working conditions, asked Goodell to force NFL teams to stop exploiting women.

Allred also held up a T-shirt for reporters showing the figure $7.25, the federal minimum wage, alleging the cheerleaders were paid less than that.

For example, knowing that Noah New York Jets Youth Jersey Syndergaard (strained finger) was about to be activated from the 10-day DL to start yesterday’s game, I went ahead and gave him a big boost in my latest rankings. Of course, then the news came down that he was still suffering from a little swelling and discomfort, so he was scratched in favor of Seth Lugo. Still, with reports that he could very well be back this coming weekend, I’m not inclined to move him back down the ladder. With pitchers, once they’re given the ball, comparing their results to that of their peers is a rather simple task.

There is, however, a more interesting variable when it comes to ranking hitters, which tends to come to the fore in particular when I’m asked, for example, Which one of these three catchers do you like best going forward? It’s not as simple an answer as to simply point you to my rankings.

Indianapolis Colts: Peyton Manning has some advice for Andrew Luck

Posted on by

Again. And again. And again. And again. And…聽
Adidas NHL Youth Josh Manson White Away Authentic Jersey - #42 Anaheim Ducks
That’s Peyton Manning’s advice to Andrew Luck: Just keep getting in those repetitions.

The Capitals have made the playoffs in 13 of 19 seasons since their only other trip to the Final in 1998, but hadn’t managed to get their fans back to the final round until this year. Capital One Arena in downtown Washington was packed with red-clad fans watching Game 2 on the videoboards.

The Caps improved to 9-3 on the road in the postseason after two games in this frequently chaotic series. The first two games of the Stanley Cup Final were split for only the third time in the last 13 editions of the NHL’s final round.

After a rough opener in Vegas, Holtby rounded back into something Miles Killebrew Jersey approaching his form in back-to-back shutouts to close the Eastern Conference finals. While his save on Tuch was the most impressive, he kept the Caps in charge with 15 saves in the third period, including a tenacious effort during a 5-on-3 advantage for 1:09 for the Knights.

The response from Manning’s representative came after court documents in Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Howard’s聽defamation suit against Al Jazeera were unsealed, per Gardner.聽

According to the documents, Charles Sly鈥攚ho Al Jazeera said worked at the Guyer Institute in Indianapolis鈥攎ade the following statement:聽

DeAndre’ Bembry Youth Jersey I did part of my training at the Guyer Institute which is like this anti-aging clinic in Indiana. [Peyton Manning] and his wife would come in after hours and get IVs and s–t…. So one thing that Guyer does is he dispenses drugs out of his office, which physicians can do in the United States it’s just not very many of them do it…. And all the time we would be sending [wife] Ashley Manning drugs. Like growth hormone, all the time, everywhere, Florida. And it would never be under Peyton’s name, it would always be under her name…. We were sending it everywhere.

That comment was relayed to Manning’s representatives who, according to a document, confirmed much of what Sly had said.聽

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said after his team finished up its first organized team activity practice.

Posted on by

The physical challenge is not what threatens to short-circuit Apple’s career. Jerry Reese, the general manager who picked Apple No. 10 overall in 2016, is gone. Ben McAdoo, the novice head coach who ultimately could not get through to Apple, is gone. Apple remains and the Giants need him to evolve into a solid starter, and that can only happen if his head is clear and screwed on straight.

I think I can be a great Pro Bowl player, he said. It’s just about every day going about my business and being a great player every day and being consistent.

It’s impossible to say whether the Browns would have turned elsewhere with their No. 1 pick if the Foles trade had panned out, as they may have still seen Mayfield as their quarterback of the future. But failing to add Foles to the mix makes the Browns’ depth chart of Taylor, Mayfield and Drew Stanton much less intimidating.

Adding insult to injury would be if the Eagles decide to trade the 29-year-old Foles either before the season or at the Oct. 31 trade deadline, especially if Wentz returns to Pro Bowl form.

It wouldn’t be the first time the Browns missed out on trading for a starting quarterback after they infamously failed to land AJ McCarron from the Bengals at last year’s trade deadline because of a paperwork snafu.

The NFL has passed a new rule for this season that says any player who initiates contact with his helmet is subject to ejection after an in-game video review that will be decided in New York.

Al Riveron, the league’s head of officiating, said a foul can be called regardless of where on the body — not just the head or neck area — that one player hits another with his helmet. The rule is not position-specific, so offensive players will be subject to the same criteria as defensive players.

This is about eliminating unnecessary use of the helmet, Riveron said Tuesday at the NFL spring meetings.

If a player is ejected, Riveron and his staff in New York will use network camera angles to determine if the ejection is necessary. He promised that games will not become an ejection fest every week.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix skipping Packers’ OTAs

Posted on by

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is not attending the Packers’ organized team activities, per multiple reports.
Adidas NHL Youth Xavier Ouellet White Away Authentic Jersey - #61 Detroit Red Wings
Elite Mens David Harris Jersey The Kevin Durant Womens Jersey Pro Bowl safety has offered no explanation for his absence, but it’s probably a good guess he wants a long-term extension. Clinton-Dix currently is scheduled to play 2018 under the fifth-year option of $5.96 million.

The Buccaneers have made many regrettable picks on defense over the years. This recent whiff should begin to sting a little bit more. Barron, out of Alabama, was seen as a playmaking thumper with the potential of becoming the next John Lynch. But at the same time, Tampa Bay really needed a stud middle linebacker and was attached to taking Kuechly in several mock drafts. Instead, Barron had one semi-decent season before he become trade bait, while Kuechly dominates for the Bucs’ division rivals in Carolina.

The Patriots are 102-26 in the regular season with four Super Bowl appearances, including two titles, since McCourty joined them as a first-round pick in 2010.

The Patriots reacted to former teammate Cassius Marsh’s comment that playing for the Patriots is neither fun nor happy. Linebacker Dont’a Hightower said the Patriots have fun but admits it’s not for everyone.

McCourty wrote off Marsh’s comments as frustration.

Darqueze Dennard”>Game Kids http://www.officialbengalslockerroom.com/elite-darqueze-dennard-jersey”>Darqueze Dennard Jersey I’m always having fun, but I get it, McCourty said. Cassius had a frustrating time here. I didn’t think he would get released here and say New England was the time of his life. He can’t wait to try to come back some day.

He led cheers at the Pittsburgh Penguins’ NHL playoff game on Wednesday. And on Saturday, Shazier served as an honorary coach at Ohio State’s Scarlet vs. Gray game. Four months after suffering a career-threatening spinal injury on Monday Night Football against the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, the Steelers linebacker stood up, waved his arms and embraced Malcolm Jenkins to a loud ovation.
