NEW YORK -- Atlanta Braves reliever Jose Ramirez has been given a three-game suspension by Major League Baseball for throwing a pitch near the head of Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez.The commissioners office says Ramirez has decided to appeal, so he remains eligible to pitch until the process is complete.The announcement was made Friday by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr.Atlantas Nick Markakis and Miamis Martin Prado were hit by pitches during a testy game between the teams Wednesday night. In the seventh inning, Fernandez was batting when he ducked under a high pitch from Ramirez, who was ejected.Both benches emptied during a brief fracas, but no punches were thrown.

(STATS) -- The Savannah State players congratulated South Carolina States Joe Thomas Sr. afterward and called him Pops.The oldest player in the history of Division I college football felt great about the acknowledgment. He also would have answered to hero.The 55-year-old senior walk-on got into a game for the first time this season, carrying the ball four times for negative-one yard in South Carolina States 32-0 win over Savannah State in Orangeburg, South Carolina.His team presented Thomas with a game ball.I felt like a hero, said the native of Blackville, South Carolina. It was certainly one of the happiest days of my life. I always wanted to play college football and I finally got the chance. And I thank South Carolina State, coach (Buddy) Pough and the entire coaching staff and my teammates for the opportunity. I had been waiting 36 years.I always said, Never give up on your dreams. Keep driving forward and dont listen to other people. Its a great day for me, but I must admit, I didnt think my situation would generate so much attention and so much positive response.Thomas entered the game with just under five minutes remaining in the first quarter and picked up three yards on his first carry. He also carried the ball three times on the final possession of the fourth quarter.His 25-year-old son, Joe Thomas Jr., was a former All-MEAC linebacker at South Carolina State who plays for the Green Bay Packers.South Carolina State (4-6) will conclude its season next Saturday against Bethune-Cookman. http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Will-Compton-Jersey/ . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Trent-Murphy-Jersey/ . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Samaje-Perine-Jersey/ .

Numbers Game looks into the Canadiens securing the services of Thomas Vanek in a trade with the New York Islanders. The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick. Sussex have signed South Africa international Vernon Philander for the first half of the county season, advancing his reputation as one of the overseas nomads of the county circuit.Philander, who remains an integral part of South Africas bowling attack and has played 37 Test matches for his country, will be available for Sussexs first six Specsavers County Championship matches, and the entire group stage of the Royal London One-Day Cup tournament.Philander will use the spell at Sussex as a useful warm-up ahead of South Africas Test series against England next summer. He has not played ODIs for South Africa for more than a year but he has not retired from the format and a call up for South Africa in the Champions Trophy cannot be entirely ruled out, which, if it occurred, would disrupt Sussexs plans.Sussex represent Philanders fifth county after other short-term deals at Middlesex in 2008, Somerset in 2012, Kent in 2013 and Nottinghamshire in 2015. His emphasis has very much been on using the county circuit in short-term bursts to build form and fitness, and earn revenue, without seeking any long-term loyalty.In those four stints, he has taken only 49 first-class wickets at 26.98, his most laasting contribution being the 23 wickets he took for Somerset in 2012 and his most ephemeral appearance a two-game stint at Kent when he failed to take a wicket.ddddddddddddost recently, he helped South Africa to an impressive 2-1 Test series victory in Australia, having decimated the hosts top-order in the second Test with figures of 5 for 21 in the first innings, as Australia were bowled out for 85.Sussexs head coach Mark Davis said, I am thrilled to have Vernon joining us for the first two months of the season. He is one of the leading bowlers in world cricket and to have him bowling in English conditions is a very exciting prospect from the club.Philander said of his upcoming stint at Hove: Im really looking forward to getting to Hove and playing for Sussex for the first couple of months of the English season. Although I havent come up against Sussex much in my time playing in England, Ive always heard good things about the club and set-up.Mark Davis, the coaching team and Luke Wright are building an exciting squad and Im excited to be a part of that in 2017.

St Lucia Zouks 194 for 3 (Fletcher 70, Charles 64, Powell 2-45) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 177 for 6 (Gayle 30, Powell 28, Shillingford 2-30) by 17 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsAndre Fletcher and Johnson Charles struck half-centuries for the second day in a row, and combined for a 104-run opening partnership, to help St Lucia Zouks beat Jamaica Tallawahs by 17 runs. Zouks fifth win in their last six games concluded the Lauderhill leg of CPL 2016Charles kept up his scintillating form with 64 off 35 balls, his third half-century in his last four innings, and took over as the leading run-getter in the tournament with 410 runs at 45.55.Sundays rematch began after a 50-minute delay due to lightning in the area of the Central Broward Regional Park and despite the fact that Zouks posted the highest total of CPL 2016 after being sent in on Saturday, Tallawahs captain Chris Gayle opted to give Zouks first strike 24 hours later. The result was another dominant batting display spearheaded by the openers.Charles brought up his fifty in 25 balls off Timroy Allen in the ninth over, when he hit a six with the wind over midwicket to the northwest side of the ground. Allen nearly had Fletcher caught at long-on off the last ball of the over for 29, but the fielder came in several steps off the rope and with the ball taking off in a stiff breeze, a desperate leap only managed to parry the ball over for six.Tallawahs had added a third spinner to the line-up in Garey Mathurin and the left-armer eventually made the first breakthrough in the 12th over, forcing Charles to hit into the wind towards midwicket on the southeast side of the ground where Chadwick Walton took a good catch. Michael Hussey fell in similar fashion, hitting to Walton stationed at sweeper cover on off Rovman Powell at the start of the 16th over. Walton took his third catch in the same position when he combined with Powell again to nab Fletcher for 70 off 54 balls.The opener couldnt power through the wind in the 18th and fell two overs short of making it through both Zouks innings in Lauderhill unbeaten.Kesrick Williams could have had Shane Watson caught off a paddle sweep at short fine leg on 22 if only he hadnt overstepped. Watson went on to add 20, including two sixes in the final over off Powell to set a target of 195, just out of reach for Tallawahs.Tallawahs got off to a hot start in their chase with Gayle making 30 off 15 balls, in what eventually ended as his sides top score, after being caught on the boundary off Watson. His innings typified the Tallawahs line-up, with everyone in the top seven getting into double-digits but no one able to carry on for a big score. His 43-run stand for the first wicket with Walton was also the best in the innings as wickets fell at regular intervals and stunted their momentum.Shane Shillingford claimed Walton and later Rovman Powell to finish with 2 for 30, his best figures on the season. Tallawahs had an outside chance of pulling off a win when they needed 43 off 18 balls with Alex Ross and Shakib Al Hasan at the crease, but Watson and Jerome Taylor virtually iced the game by conceding seven singles off the next 11 balls.After arriving in Lauderhill on July 21 in first place, Tallawahs leave in second and will face table-toppers Guyana Amazon Warriors in the first play-off match in St Kitts on Wednesday. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Morgan-Burnett-Jersey/ .

While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Quinten-Rollins-Jersey/ PITTSBURGH -- Cole Hamels insists that leading the major leagues in losses doesnt bother him and he has been able to keep a positive attitude in the most difficult season of his eight-year career. "Ive played a lot of baseball and Ive pitched in a lot of games, and I know Im going to play a lot more baseball and pitch in a lot more games," Hamels said. "I know that my record is just kind of blip on the radar and you have to be who you are." Hamels looked more like a former World Series MVP on Thursday as he pitched seven strong innings, Carlos Ruiz hit a tiebreaking single and the Phillies beat Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Thursday. Hamels (3-11) gave up one earned run and five hits, striking out eight without a walk. He won for the first time since June 5. "It was being able to get back to what I know, which is establish the strike zone early then throw all my pitches," Hamels said. "Ultimately, it was staying down in the zone. Thats where Ive got hurt in the past, I get guys where I want them and not able to finish them off because Im getting too many balls up in the zone." Cole (4-1) lost for the first time in the majors after becoming the first Pirates pitcher to win his first four career starts since Nick Maddox in 1907. Cole allowed three runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings. "I thought he pitched well," Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. "Hes a 22-year-old young man. Hes still learning, continuing to grow. Hes fun to watch." Hamels received some rare support as the Phillies have scored just 22 runs in his 11 losses. Ben Revere had three of the Phillies 13 hits and two RBIs. Ruiz, Jimmy Rollins and Delmon Young each had two hits. "Its not so much the raw number of hits you have but what you get them," Young said. "We were playing the best team in baseball with the Pirates. Their pitching has been outstanding and their offence has been lagging but theyre winning because they hit in the clutch. Thats what we did today, and what we need to continue to do." Jonathan Papelbon worked a perfect ninth inning for his 17th save in 21 opportunities. Ruizs two-run single came off Vin Mazzaro in the middle of a four-run sixth inning in which Cole was chased. Ruiz, who sat out the first 25 games of the season after being suspended by Major League Baseball for testing positive for a banned stimulant, had driven in just four runs all year prior to Thursday. Cole was removed after Ryan Howard walked with one out and Domonic Brown followed with a single. Mazzaro, who had not allowed any of his 12 inherited runners to score this season, ccame on and gave up three straight singles.dddddddddddd. Youngs hit loaded the bases and Kevin Frandsens single tied it before Ruiz hit a liner to centre to score Brown and Young and put Philadelphia ahead. Revere capped the inning by driving in a run with a grounder. "The Pirates have a really good bullpen but I think it made a difference when we were able to get Cole out of the game," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "Hes a good pitcher now and hes going to be a real good pitcher. He was tough." Both teams complained about home plate umpire Chris Conroys strike zone and Cole seemed particularly upset after the walk to Howard, though he stopped short of being critical when asked about some close calls during that at-bat. "I made a couple of pitches on the black (of the plate) but those pitches can go either way depending on the judgment, Cole said. "I felt I made a couple of quality pitches." Pinch-hitter Michael Youngs sacrifice fly in the eighth extended the Phillies lead to 6-2. The Pirates scored twice in the eighth on a pinch-hit RBI single by Garrett Jones and a double-play grounder by Andrew McCutchen. McCutchens two-run double in the third opened the scoring. The Phillies cut the deficit to 2-1 on Reveres RBI single in the fifth. Starling Marte and Jose Tabata each had two hits for Pittsburgh, which has the best record in the majors, but has lost two of three since a nine-game winning streak. Marte ran his hitting streak to nine games. Philadelphia won for just the 10th time in 25 games as it avoided dropping to a season-worst six games below .500. The Phillies won a series in Pittsburgh for the first time since 2008. NOTES: Pittsburgh RHP A.J. Burnett is likely to come off the disabled list Sunday and start against the Cubs at Chicago, though Pirates manager Clint Hurdle would prefer the veteran make one minor league rehab start. Burnett, who has been out since June 9 with a strained right calf, insists he does not need to go on a rehab assignment. ... Manuel said he will rest Howard against certain left-handed starters but will not use him in a strict platoon with right-handed hitting John Mayberry Jr. ... Pirates SS Jordy Mercer got the day off after going 1 for 9 in the first two games of the series and making an error on Wednesday night that allowed a run to score. ... The Pirates open their three-game series with the Cubs on Friday with LHP Francisco Liriano (7-3, 2.23) pitching against RHP Jeff Samardzija (5-7, 3.34) ... The Phillies open a three-game home series with Atlanta on Friday night as LHP Cliff Lee (9-2, 2.59) faces RHP Tim Hudson (4-7, 4.22).

Jalen Teez Tabor isnt afraid to show his confidence. Some people mistake it for arrogance, but its the bravado needed to do his job: shut people down.Floridas 6-foot, 201-pound powder keg of emotion and talent has All-American tenacity because he can. He uses his witty, mostly NSFW words on the field to find that paralyzing edge, while fueling his own physical yet somewhat beautiful style of play that earned him first-team All-SEC honors as a sophomore last season.Id say he would certainly be in the starting five if we were going to have a basketball team of trash-talkers, said South Carolina coach Will Muschamp, who signed Tabor in his final recruiting class at Florida in 2014.Off the field, his words can pierce just as much. Just ask the Tennessee Vols.Though he has played in only one game against Tennessee, Floridas 11 straight wins over Tennessee since the early 1990s has left Tabor with no choice but to troll Rocky Top.On Twitter, he compared the Cleveland Cavaliers struggles in the first two games of this years NBA Finals against Golden State to Tennessees fourth-quarter collapse to the Gators in last seasons 28-27 thriller in the Swamp. In August, he went on national television with ESPNs Paul Finebaum to proclaim that Florida would extend its winning streak over the Vols to 12 this year. He mocked Tennessee being picked by ESPNs Football Power Index as the favorites to win the SEC East, called out Peyton Manning for never beating Florida and this past Saturday he simply tweeted Yep its a L during halftime of Tennessees 28-19 win over Ohio.Saturdays matchup between No. 14 Tennessee (3-0) and No. 19 Florida (3-0, 1-0 SEC), will bring plenty of SEC East Division talk, and a ton of Tabor talk.Its as simple as this: Tennessee plays Florida every year -- either in Gainesville or in Knoxville -- and at Florida, we win, Tabor told ESPN.com in August. At the end of the day, the University of Florida is going to beat the University of Tennessee. Thats the culture, thats history. Thats whats going to happen.Some things just continue to take place, and one of those things is the University of Florida beats the University of Tennessee in football.The braggadocious junior, who considers Steve Spurrier one of his idols, thrives on mental warfare. With a Deion Sanders-like attitude, Tabor isnt afraid to put himself on an island for criticism.I feel like Im the best player in the country, he said. They give the Jim Thorpe Award to the best DB, and I feel like if I do what I have to do, I dont see anybody else who can [win the award]. It shouldnt be an issue.Merri Tabor attributes her sons fierce confidence to his early days of flag football in the blue-collar town of Bowie, Maryland, when a 4-year-old Tabor constantly yapped at the children across from him. When he wasnt calling out players, he was calling out the other teams plays before they even got set.Before I knew my ABCs, I knew the offense was going to run a screen pass on third-and-9, Tabor said.Tabor taught himself the game by watching the NFL Network. He dissected plays in his mind and eventually predicted plays of NFL teams as soon as the offenses lined up. Madden video games served as electronic practices before he trotted out for the real thing.All hes done is football for the past 18 years, Merri Tabor said.Teez Tabor got his start as a talkative, Little League firecracker, but he cut his teeth during his four years at Friendship Collegiate Academy in southeast Washington, D.C. After spending most of his young academic life in private school, Tabors mom enrolled him in football powerhouse Our Lady of Good Counsel High School.However, when Tabor was in eighth grade, his mom met Aazaar Abdul-Rahim, who was coaching Friendships football team. Abdul-Rahim, now the defensive backs coach at Maryland, founded Friendships football team in 2004 and Merri Tabor wanted her son to work with and learn from him.Merri Tabor pulled her son out and moved into the district that housed Friendship, a charter school barely a decade old in an impoverished part of D.C., to subject him to a more humble lifestyle she hoped would present him with critical life lessons.I pulled him from what would have been a good situation to moving him somewhere where I thought he would fail, Merri Tabor said.To make it at Friendship, Tabor had to survive both the streets and the Beach.Friendship, located in D.C.s Ward 7, exposed Tabor to the toxic environment of a destitute, crime-stricken area. Tabor lost two of his close friends to shootings.He was jumped and robbed twice in high school, prompting his mother to have older students take him to the subway to get to school. She would pick him up after school and made sure he got to and from football practice without issues.So Friendship Beach, the schools dirt practice field, became his warped sanctuary.There was no locker room, so the players changed in nearby shipping containers. There were never enough helmets. There was no weight room, so they worked out in the schools halls. There was no home field, so every game was on the road.Skin and hair caked with dirt that sometimes remained after showers. Cleats cracked broken glass and food wrappers. Rocks scraped knees and there was no give underneath. Sometimes administrators combed the field for needles before practice. A dead body was found there. Practices ran as the sound of gunshots popped within close proximity.The Beach was a getaway for players hoping football would be a lottery ticket out of the horrors of the inner city.We wanted to practice at the Beach. We wanted to get dirty, Tabor said. We felt like that gave us the edge.Friendship humbled Tabor, who became nationally recognized with nearly 30 FBS offers. He didnt allow a pass to be completed on him his junior year, and the two-time Washington Post All-Met honoree broke up 17 passes with five interceptions as a senior on his way to becoming D.C.s Mr. Football and ESPNs No. 4-rated cornerback prospect.The slender five-star corner grabbed current South Carolina defenssive coordinator Travaris Robinsons attention.dddddddddddd Robinson, who was Floridas defensive backs coach at the time, remembers seeing a tenacious, long corner with exceptional ball skills, tremendous instincts and the willingness to tackle of a linebacker.Tabor dazzled live and his ability jumped off tape, but what really drew Robinson to him was his knowledge of the game.That tells me that in his spare time, he isnt playing video games, hes watching football, Robinson said. Thats more than half the battle, and thats not common anymore.Robinson also admired the semi-truck-sized chip on Tabors shoulder that he carried to Florida. With All-American Vernon Hargreaves III still around and leading the secondary, Tabor mostly listened, but he tried to outwork his teammates and take extra reps.Having Hargreaves there was great from a learning standpoint, but it was Tabors time with classmate Quincy Wilson that he said pushed his first-year progress. The two met during The Opening, a football camp at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, the summer before their senior years. They marveled at each other, as they immediately compared their size and skill. Wilson wanted to show the Maryland guy what Florida speed was like, and Tabor wanted to show the Florida kid what D.C. toughness was all about.That was the first time I saw another corner with my build, Wilson said of Tabor.They reunited at the Under Armour All-America Game practices, where again their competitiveness fueled their play. Of course, that bled over into Gainesville. Tabor said the two didnt talk much at first, subbing in and out of games without exchanging words. It wasnt bad blood, just two confident corners competing for a starting spot.But that competition slowly turned into teamwork. The more they worked together, the better they got, but it wasnt until the latter part of the season that the two really started to bond. They shared advice and created an on-field chemistry that made it tough for coaches to keep them on the sideline.The fact that he was balling and I was balling, it made us better, Wilson said. It was like, the coach had to play us.Tabor said he first really came around to Wilsons partnership when Hargreaves tired in Floridas bowl game against ECU, allowing the two to take the field together. The two, sitting at opposite sides of the bench, leaned back, looked at each other and nodded in unison.It was like everything paused, Tabor said. We were like, Lets go. Were in the game now. Standing about five yards off Kentucky receiver Dorian Baker, his back to Floridas sideline, Tabor kept his eyes on Kentucky quarterback Drew Barker. As soon as the ball was snapped, Tabor bounced twice to his left, then bolted toward Baker as Barker released, corralling the pass before tumbling to the ground.Deja vu.If Im going to call it out when Im 4 years old that theyre going to call a screen play, how am I not going to be able to call it out now? Its just a natural instinct, Tabor said. If you know its coming, why not go pick the ball off?Tabor has shown fantastic flashes like that since his freshman year when he started five games, earning All-SEC freshman honors with 31 tackles, including four for loss and two sacks. He broke up eight passes and had a masterful one-handed interception against Vanderbilt. Last year, Tabor started nine games -- sometimes outplaying Thorpe Award finalist Hargreaves -- with an SEC-high 18 passes defended with four interceptions (two went for touchdowns).He currently ranks 14th on Mel Kipers Big Board, and probably will follow Hargreaves as a first-round pick if he leaves after the season.He is one of a kind, Hargreaves said of Tabor last season. Hes natural and can do some things that no one else can do on the field. You cant teach it and you cant coach it.But Tabor doesnt think he has totally arrived, not like Hargreaves -- whom he looks up to like a brother. Tabor was snubbed from All-American consideration last year and didnt make the Thorpe Award watch list this summer. He blames himself. He blames the dropped interceptions and bouts with laziness in games.Tabor thrives on chaos -- a blessing and a curse. His loud play can make for an even louder mouth that has gotten him in trouble, like when he talked so much trash to tight end?Cyontai Lewis?during two-a-days this fall that the two brawled with helmets and were suspended?for the season opener.On Twitter, hes as aggressive as he is on the field, on just about any topic. In a span of six months, he weighed in on the controversial Alton Sterling shooting, called out Lewis after their on-field scuffle and criticized Floridas athletic association after he was suspended for last years Tennessee game, reportedly for refusing to take a drug test.Tabor knows he can be controversial but refuses to censor his honesty. Its remarkably refreshing, even if you disagree with him.Why not speak when somethings wrong? Tabor said. If somethings done the right way, I always compliment it, but when somethings wrong, thats when you have to say something.Tabor does have a softer side. He consumes himself with community service work, including summer football camps with Abdul-Rahim back in Maryland. He wants to open a charter school in D.C., and he has taken the name Teez because his younger cousin gave it to him when he was in high school.Merri Tabor worries her son is trying to do too much. But her brash child has become a face of Floridas football team. He conducted his own media day on Periscope when he didnt go to SEC media days, and head coach Jim McElwain, who is a fan of Tabors self-confidence and aggressive attitude, sent him on a personal publicity tour through New York.Tabor respects the spotlight and loves the pressure. More important, he loves what hes doing.Im just a young kid from [Prince Georges] County Maryland who had a dream and is still chasing a dream, he said.

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs reliever Pedro Strop will be sidelined four to six weeks with a torn meniscus in his left knee.The right-hander will undergo arthroscopic surgery Friday after getting hurt fielding a grounder in the eighth inning of Wednesdays victory over the Los Angeles Angels.Its never fun not having him around, but it could have been worse, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Thursday. Were going to get him back and thats a good thing.Strop was placed on the 15-day disabled list and right-hander Justin Grimm was recalled from Triple-A Iowa. With reliever Hector Rondon also sidelined with a triceps injury, the NL Central-leading Cubs will have to shuffle bullpen roles ahead of closer Aroldis Chapman.It will give more opportunity to different guys, particularly Joe Smith is going to be the guy that is utilized more because of it, Maddon said. Grimm has his strongpoints, too, that we can utilize. Were still waiting to hear from Hector to see exactly when hes going to be available.The 31-year-old Strop, who has a 2.89 ERA in 50 appearances this season, bolted off the mound and slid in front of third baseman Javier Baez to field Yunel Escobars slow roller.Adrenaline took over for me to slide and I kind of got stuck in the grass, Strop said, while leaning on crutches in the clubhouse.Baez hugged Strop so he wouldnt throw to first, and Strop said the doctor told him it could have been worse if he did try to wheel and throw.I appreciate Javy holding me, he said.The timetable calls for Strop to return toward the end of the regular season and be ready for the playoffs.It was a horrible feeling. I was almost crying just thinking that I might be out for the season, Strop said. This is a really special group that I want to be part of in the playoffs and World Series if we get there.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles are going down a road the Falcons traveled last year.After Philadelphia started 3-0, rookie quarterback Carson Wentz and first-year coach Doug Pederson were the talk of the town. But the Eagles have lost four of five, Wentz has been up and down and Pederson has made several questionable decisions.In 2015, rookie coach Dan Quinn guided Atlanta to a 5-0 start. But the Falcons went 3-8 the rest of the way and many wondered whether quarterback Matt Ryans time was up.Ryan stuck around and is having his best season, helping the Falcons (6-3) lead the NFC South.Wentz and the Eagles are hoping for a similar and even more immediate turnaround. Theyll kick off the second half of their season at home against the Falcons on Sunday.We fully believe were a good football team, Wentz said. We fully know all four of these losses we had a chance to win, and most of them we kind of hurt ourselves.Ryan grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs and rooted for Donovan McNabb, so he understands what Wentz is going through in a city thats been waiting 56 years for a football championship.There are a lot of good things that come with (playing quarterback) and a lot of things that are tough to deal with, Ryan said. It seems like he has a good head on his shoulders up there. I know its a place that can be tough. Growing up there, they can be tough on their teams for sure. But if youre winning, just like any place, winning is good.Wentz has a big fan in Quinn.The first time I saw him was at the Senior Bowl, Quinn said. He looked like a really good player on the very first day. ... When we went through the cut-ups, he just looked like somebody that was going to be able to handle it early on.Here are some things to watch for when Atlanta visits Philadelphia:GETTING DEFENSIVE: The Eagles have the leagues No. 6 ranked defense, but theyve got a tough task this week. Atlantas offense is No. 2 in yards and first in scoring, averaging 33.9 points per game. Ryan leads the NFL with 2,980 yards passing and 23 touchdowns -- with only four interceptions. Julio Jones leads the league with 970 yards receiving.I think this is the best offense that we will face all year, Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said.CATCHING FLAK: While tthe Falcons have arguably the best receiver in the league and a solid group overall, Philadelphias receivers are mediocre at best.dddddddddddd Jordan Matthews leads the Eagles with 42 receptions for 507 yards. Hes not in the top 20 in either category. Second-year pros Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham struggle to get open and make plays. Rookie Bryce Treggs opened eyes with a 58-yard catch last week, but it was only his first game.SACKS ON THE RISE: After ranking last in the league with only 19 sacks in 2015, the Falcons already have 20 this season. Vic Beasley Jr., last years first-round draft from Clemson, leads the team with 7 1-2 sacks. Adrian Clayborn has 4 1-2. Grady Jarrett initially was credited with two sacks in last weeks win at Tampa Bay, but the leagues review of the film this week took one sack away.HOMECOOKING: The Eagles are 3-0 at home, 1-4 on the road. Theyve dominated opponents in Philadelphia, outscoring them 84-23. Their most impressive win was a convincing 34-3 victory over the Steelers in Week 3. They also handed Minnesota its first loss in Week 7. But the Falcons are better on the road (4-1) than at home (2-2). Something has to give.Weve done a good job of approaching it with the right mindset, Ryan said. It is a business trip. Weve got one objective for when we get up there. From the moment we started preparation earlier in the week until we finish the game, everything needs to be geared toward finding a way to win.TAMME OUT: Falcons TE Jacob Tamme is expected to miss his second straight game with a shoulder injury. Backup tight ends Levine Toilolo and Austin Hooper had TD catches against the Buccaneers. A third tight end, Joshua Perkins, dropped a chance for another scoring catch. Hooper, a third-round pick from Stanford, is expected to start as he tries to make his case as the teams future fixture at the position. Hooper has 14 catches for 241 yards and two touchdowns.---AP Sports Writer Charles Odum contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee was dominant enough for one six-minute stretch to make up for any youthful mistakes it made the rest of the night.Robert Hubbs III scored 16 points to lead six Tennessee players in double figures Tuesday as the Volunteers capitalized on a 21-0 first-half spurt in a 103-94 victory over Appalachian State.Tennessee, which has seven true freshmen and one redshirt freshman on its roster, bounced back from a season-opening 82-69 home loss to Chattanooga and avoided its first 0-2 start since 1965-66.I cant imagine theres a younger team, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. I do think we did some things better from the first game, but we still, at times tonight, acted like the really young basketball team we are.The Vols (1-1) trailed 11-9 early before reeling off 21 straight points by feasting on Appalachian State turnovers. Jordan Bone and Grant Williams each scored five points during that 21-0 run, which culminated with a 3-pointer from Jordan Bowden.Tennessee led by as many as 26 points during a first half in which the Vols forced 15 turnovers.I think we missed some easy ones and I think they ramped up their pressure, Appalachian State coach Jim Fox said. It slowed us down. Our guys were making uncharacteristic mistakes. If we passed the ball up, we caught the ball right by halfcourt so they trapped us. We were really tentative with things that we did. Credit them. They did a great job. Theyre tremendously athletic.The Vols werent quite as effective the rest of the way. Appalachian State (0-2) got the margin all the way down to seven with 58 seconds left but couldnt get any closer.Tennessee won with a balanced scoring attack.Lamonte Turner scored 15 points, Bowden had 14. Kyle Alexander and Williams each had 13 and Shembari Phillips added 11 for Tennessee.I feel like everybody on our team can score the ball, Bowden said. Everybody gives the ball and is not really selfish on offense.Ronshad Shabazz and Patrick Good each scored 21 for Appalachian State. Griffin Kinney had 13 points and Kelvin Robinson added 12.THE TAKEAWAYAppalachian State: The Mountaineers inability to take care of the ball in the first half proved costly. Appalachian State had 15 turnovers in the first half. Tennessee outscored Appalachian State 22-8 in first-half points off turnovers. The Mountaineers deserve some credit for chipping away at the deficit rather hanging their heads once they trailed by 26.Tennessee: The Vols corrected many of the mistakes theyd made in their loss to Chattanooga. Tennessee shot 1 of 16 from 3-point range and had 18 turnovers and four assists against Chattanooga. The Vols were 8-of-19 on 3-pointers and had 26 assists and 12 turnovers Tuesday. Bone, who had just one assist in the Chattanooga game, had eight assists and two turnovers against Appalachian State.LINEUP CHANGEBarnes responded to Tennessees season-opening loss by having Bowden and Phillips replace Admiral Schofield and Detrick Mostella in the starting lineup.Bowden had played just six minutes in the Chattanooga game, but the freshman guard shot 4 of 8 from 3-point range and scored 14 points Tuesday.We started (Bowden) because he earned it, to be quite frank, Barnes said. The other night, the reason we switched the lineup a little bit is some of those guys that started (against Chattanooga) didnt do the things that we wanted them to do defensively.REDSHIRT DUOBarnes said he is planning on redshirting freshman guard Jalen Johnson and freshman walk-on Jacob Fleschman.INJURY UPDATETennessee guard Kwe Parker missed a second straight game while wearing a walking boot on his left foot.NEXT UPAppalachian State hosts Warren Wilson College on Thursday.Tennessee faces Wisconsin on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Maui.---More AP College Basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Adam Duvall Jersey . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week.

SEATTLE -- Chris Sale will make his first start in six days when the Chicago White Sox face the Seattle Mariners on Monday. This time, Sale will not be representing the White Sox, not the American League.The All-Star Game starter will be back on the mound to open the Seattle series, and the White Sox are going to need his A game if their offense continues to struggle like it did during the weekend sweep in Anaheim. Chicago (45-46) scored just one run in the series.Were not finding ways to manufacture runs or put the ball in play. Thats the frustrating part, White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier told the Chicago Tribune.The White Sox might find company in Seattles misery this week. The Mariners (46-46) scored just two runs over the final two games of the Houston series, and they have pretty much played their way out of contention in the American League West after a promising first two months of the season.Five runs in three games, thats not going to get it done, Mariners manager Scott Servais said after Sundays 8-1 loss to Houston. Weve got to do better than that.Seattles offense is only part of the problem as the Mariners pitching rotation continues to battle injuries. Scheduled Monday starter Wade LeBlanc (1-0, 3.52 ERRA) has done his part to fill in, but he is coming off a rough outing his last time out.dddddddddddd A converted reliever who pitched in Japan last year and was with Torontos Triple-A affiliate before the desperate Mariners acquired him in June, LeBlanc will be making his fourth start with Seattle.The Mariners could help him by playing better defense than they did on Sunday, when Seattle committed a season-high four errors in what Servais called the worst game we played all year.Third baseman Kyle Seager, who had two errors and now has nine since June 2, added, It definitely wasnt a good day.If the Mariners are going to reverse their fortunes and get back into the wild-card race, theyll have to start by scoring some runs on one of the games best pitchers. Sale is having a typical season, but he is coming off his worst start of the season. The Atlanta Braves hit three home runs off Sale in a July 8 win over the White Sox, during which he allowed eight runs off 10 hits.Pretty embarrassing, Sale said after that performance, according to MLB.com. Its about as bad as I possibly think in a while.

Last season was full of unexpected turns at the running back position, with some backs outplaying their perceived fantasy value (DeAngelo Williams and Danny Woodhead) and others falling well short of expectations (Eddie Lacy and C.J. Anderson).Which backs are likely to find their way into those bounce-back and drop-off categories this season?

NEW YORK -- Baseball players and owners had a deal to expand active rosters from 25 to 26 players for most of the season, but the union backed away in the final stages of collective bargaining.As part of the deal, the limit from Sept. 1 on would have been lowered from 40 to 28.We thought we were going to make an agreement, had a tentative agreement, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred told The Associated Press on Friday, but nothings done until its done.Union head Tony Clark characterized the talks differently and said the parties may revisit the topic during the five-year contract they agreed to Wednesday.I dont know that there was an agreement to do it and that it came apart. There was a lot of dialogue over the course of this round where we were moving in a direction that we inevitably werent able to agree to, he said. It simply got to the point with all of the moving pieces that were part of the conversation during the course of the year that we lived to talk about it another day.Rosters have long expanded for the seasons final full month as minor league affiliates end their campaigns. The roster expansion gives managers the ability to make more frequent pitching changes in an attempt to gain favorable matchups.Some managers and general managers have complained it doesnt make sense to play most of the season under one set of rules and then switch as pennant races heat up. While some teams add many players and a few reach the 40-man limit, others make relatively few call-ups.There were very mixed opinions on the club side, as well, Manfred said. Maybe we were going too far, too fast.Many players make their big league debuts in September, and the union has long been concerned about the loss of service time if the limit were to be lowered from 40.To reduce the roster to 28 people would jeopardize the ability for people to get their feet wet in the big leagues, Oakland catcher Stephen Vogt said in a text. September is a great time for teams to teach the young guys how to act and be in the big leagues and get their feet wet in a comfortable environment.Given the increasing importance of bullpens, some believe a 26th player likely would be an additional relief pitcher.I know there have been a lot of concerns from the other side related to just how it would work and how it might affect the games or the length of games, Clark said. Trying to appreciate that extra player and who it may be is hard to predict based on whatever the organization philosophy is of any one team.Management and the union released details of the deal Friday, an agreement that will extend the sports labor peace to 26 years since the 1994-95 strike -- baseballs eighth work stoppage since 1972.We kept the game on the field, Manfred said. We made an agreement within our current structure which I think shows that we have a durable structure. We moved some things our direction, and we moved some other things their direction.The threshold for the luxury tax, known formally as the competitive balance tax, rises from $189 million this year to $195 million in 2017 to $210 million in the deals final season. There are some rate increases and new surtaxes.The premise of the CBT altogether was a drag at the top to keep teams from running away from the group, Clark said.Manfred added: Theres two dynamics around the threshold: stopping people from running away but also having them low enough that people can aspire to spend a little more to be a little more competitive.Among the new details that emerged:- The penalty for a second stimulant violation goes up from 25 to 50 games and for a third rises from 80 to 100. The penalty for a first violation remains follow-up testing.- Random urine tests will increase from 3,200 to 4,800 in season and from 350 to 1,550 in the offseason, ensuring at least one offseason test for all 40-man roster players. Random blood test rise from 260 to 500 in season and from 140 to 400 in the offseason.- The number of teams disqualified from revenue sharing drops from 15 to 13. A person familiar with the details, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made, said Atlanta and Houston were the teams that became eligible.- The new All-Star bonus pool for the winning team is $640,000, which calculates to $20,000 per player.- After fan and player voting, the final roster selections in each league (seven in NL and five in AL) will be made by the commissioners office rather than the All-Star managers.- Major league players may not be traded during the final week of the regular season.- While a team with a payroll $40 million or more above the luxury tax threshold would have its highest draft pick dropped 10 places, the top six selections are protected and those teams, if penalized, would have their second pick dropped 10 slots.- The commissioner may schedule regular-season games at ballparks other than the regular sites, and players would receive additional compensation.- Players would receive $15,000 to $100,000 each for special events such as games in Mexico, Asia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and London.- Signing bonuses of $10,000 or less do not count against a teams international signing bonus pool.- Teams will increase their annual pension and medical benefits contribution to about $200 million.---AP Baseball Writer Janie McCauley contributed to this report.

TOKYO -- The head of a Tokyo government cost-cutting panel has criticized 2020 Olympic organizers for not cooperating on recommendations designed to reduce spiraling expenses for the games.The panel has said the cost of the Tokyo Olympics could exceed $30 billion -- four times the initial estimate -- unless drastic cuts are made.One suggestion was to move the rowing and canoeing venue to an existing facility in Miyagi prefecture, 400 kilometers (250 miles) north of Tokyo. That came after the projected cost for the original Sea Forest venue on Tokyo Bay soared to nearly 50 billion yen ($480 million), seven times the initial estimate.Tokyo organizers countered by saying moving to Miyagi could actually drive up costs as that venue lacks Olympic-standard infrastructure.They (The organizing committee) have not come to the point where they are cooperating in specific ways to carry out an investigation of the venue together with Miyagi prefecture, panel chairman Shinichi Ueyama said during a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan.Calling Tokyo 2020s rejection of the Miyagi site unfair, Ueyama said its the only realistic out-of-town alternative to the Sea Forest venue, considering the time needed for additional construction and other preparations.The relocated venue would require up to 20 billion yen ($190 million) in construction costs to meet Olympic standardss.dddddddddddd Additional costs related to security, transportation and other infrastructure could add up further. An earlier cost estimate for the Naganuma site was 35 billion yen ($330 million).The city panel also proposed scaling down planned new venues for volleyball and swimming, and ht possibility of moving volleyball to the nearby city of Yokohama and building a smaller venue for swimming.Ueyama also criticized the lack of financial accountability in the way the organizing committee was put together, comparing it to a company with no CEO or CFO.While Ueyama said there are leaders in similar roles within the organizing committee, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Japanese Olympic Committee, there is not one within the coordination committee that brings the various parties together.There is nobody who plays the role of a CEO or a CFO, Ueyama said. If you compare it to a regular company there is nobody serving in that functional role.The panel recommended that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which will contribute the majority of finances, should serve in the role of CFO jointly with the organizing committee.The organizing committee has yet to release a budget for the games, something which Ueyama urged them to do as soon as possible.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Just when it appeared the Arizona Cardinals were turning things around, their season has hit another speed bump.The Cardinals (3-4-1) lost 30-20 to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, one week after missing a golden opportunity against Seattle and settling for a 6-6 tie when a short Chandler Catanzaro field goal attempt hit the upright in overtime.Were getting hit in the mouth, Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter said. We have to stop the bleeding before its too late.Theyll have a bye next week to figure that out.Sundays outing was a mistake-filled affair in which the Cardinals were penalized 10 times for 88 yards, allowed eight sacks, and had one situation when they wound up in a second-and-44 after quarterback Carson Palmer was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct for yelling at an official.We had way, way too many penalties and missed assignments, said Cardinals coach Bruce Arians. The pass protection struggled. Ill have to check the film for all of the holding penalties, but penalties were obviously a huge factor in this game.One plus for the Cardinals is division-leading Seattle lost at New Orleans.We harped on (the Seahawks loss) a bit, said running back David Johnson, who caught nine passes for 84 yards, but could manage just 24 yards on 10 carries against Carolina. Were one game away from tying them, and being in the lead. We just have to get healthy, and come out next week after the bye and come out fast.Two of Arizonas next three opponents are road games against NFC division leaders: Minnesota and Atlanta.Other observations from Sundays game:STEWARTS IMPACT: Carolinas running game seems to be rounding into form with the return of Jonathan Stewart, who has four touchdowns in the last two games.Stewart carried the ball for a season-high 95 yards on 25 carries. It was Stewarts second game back after missing three with a hamstring injury. Carolina is 2-1 in games in which Stewart has played. He scored touchdowns on two of his first five carries Sunday.Its been a long time, and you definitely dont want to take these wins for granted, said Stewart, whose team will play at Los Angeles, and then home against Kansas City and New Orleans next.THE FULL NELSON: The Cardinals got John Brown back on the field and Michael Floyd played through a hamstring injury.But it was wide receiver J.J. Nelson, who started opposite Larry Fitzgerald, who delivered a promising game with eight catches for 79 yards and two touchdowns. Nelson was targeted 12 times, the most among Arizona receivers.I was prepared and just tried come out and make plays, Nelson said. I felt like I was in a groove, but I did make a few mental errors that I need to improve. As a group, weve got to clean up all the mental errors and continue to get better.FINALLY, A PASS RUSH: Carolina entered Sundays game against Arizona 22nd in the league in sacks with 12. The Panthers tallied eight against Palmer , the most hes been sacked in his career.Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott called several blitzes, some utilizing nickel back Leonard Johnson.Its a really good front, Palmer said. Kawann Shorts a great pass rusher. Charles (Johnson) has been a great pass rusher for a long time, and Star Lotulelei is a great pass rusher. You throw in Thomas Davis blitzing and (Luke) Kuechly blitzing, and its a very good group.PANTHERS VS. AFC WEST: Its no fun to play a first-place NFL schedule.It can be extra tough when your inter-conference schedule pits your division against the AFCs best. An angry Cam Newton and the Panthers already lost to Denver this season and must still face Kansas City, San Diego and Oakland.

Willie McCovey Jersey . JOHNS, N. BERKELEY, Calif. -- His injured toe no longer a concern, Californias Ivan Rabb is proving that his decision to put off the NBA for at least one year was a good one.The Golden Bears are certainly glad he stayed.Rabb scored five of his career-high 25 points in overtime and California held on to beat Louisiana Tech 68-59 on Wednesday night.All of Rabbs points in overtime came on free throws after the Golden Bears didnt go to the line at all in the second half. Rabb shot 9 of 12 and added a season-high 13 rebounds for his fourth consecutive double-double after missing two games with a toe injury.Were feeding him, California center Kingsley Okoroh said. Last year we didnt look for him as much. This year we need him to score, we need him to step up. Hes doing well what needs to be done.California made only one basket in overtime -- Grant Mullins 3-pointer -- but went 8 of 12 on free throws while holding Louisiana Tech to two points.Rabb led the way in overtime but also gave the Bears a lift with 16 points in the first half. That was an emphasis after he got off to sluggish starts in the previous three games.My goal today was to put two halves together because every game it seemed like its just been one half, Rabb said. I wasnt thinking too much. I was just letting the game come to me and I think that really benefited us as a whole.Kingsley Okoroh had nine points, 12 rebounds and matched his career-high with five blocks as California (5-1) extended its winning streak at Haas Pavilion to 24 -- two shy off the school record and tied with Virginia for the sixth-longest active streak in the nation. Charlie Moore added 19 points.Erik McCree had 11 points and 11 rebounds for Louisiana Tech (3-3) after going scoreless in the first half. Derric Jean added 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists.We were right up there until the very end, Bulldogs coach Eric Konkol said. We need to build on this so we arent in the same situation again.California fed off Rabbs fast staart and held a nine-point lead with 2:13 left in the first half before Louisiana Tech scored seven straight to pull within 31-29 at halftime.dddddddddddd thought it would be, I didnt think it would be that tough, Bears coach Cuonzo Martin said. They really made us work for shots. (Rabb) did a good job of staying aggressive, staying active, staying locked in.BIG PICTURELouisiana Tech: The Bulldogs showed some grit in taking the game to overtime after it looked like they were on the verge of being blown out early. Shooting 18 of 66 (27.3 percent) wont make it an easy pill to swallow, either. The good news is that the big three -- McCree, Jacobi Boykins and Jean -- continue to get to the basket fairly easily. The bad news is that redshirt senior Qiydar Davis might have suffered a season-ending knee injury.California: This is one that Martin cant be completely pleased with. The offense ran smoothly as long as Rabb was on the court but Cal went stagnant whenever he was on the bench. Rabbs performance is a good sign for the Bears because hell be spending additional time in the post now that backup center Kameron Rooks is out for at least a month following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee earlier Wednesday. Okoroh will get extended minutes, too, until Rooks returns.DAVIS DONE AGAIN?Davis season is in doubt after the redshirt senior appeared to injure his right knee early in the second half. Davis, who is playing on a medical redshirt waiver this season after suffering an MCL injury in 2015, had to be helped off the court in the first half before going down again with just over 15 minutes left to play.UP NEXTLouisiana Tech: The Bulldogs return home to host Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday night.California: Hosts Alcorn State on Saturday before heading to Hawaii to play Princeton and Seton Hall in the Pearl Harbor Invitational.

NEW DELHI -- Dutee Chand made the time just in time.Less than six weeks before the Rio de Janeiro Games, Chand became the first female Indian sprinter in 36 years to qualify for the Olympics.She ran the 100 meters at an international meeting in Almaty, Kazakhstan, in 11.24 seconds, well under the Olympic qualifying standard of 11.32.She was the silver medalist in the race, a year after the Court of Arbitration for Sport issued a landmark ruling that challenged her suspension for hyperandrogenism, a condition which produces higher than normal testosterone levels in women.It has been a tough year for me. My hard work and that of my coach has paid off, a relieved Chand said in Almaty after winning her heat.Chand was suspended two years ago by the IAAF because of hyperandrogenism. But with the support of a group of lawyers and sports enthusiasts, Chand appealed to the Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport, saying her suspension was discriminatory and against the spirit of sport.Last year, sports highest court decided in her favor, ordering the IAAF to suspend the regulations for two years to allow athletics global body to gather evidence as to whether hyperandrogenism offers a performance advantage.Chand will be only the second female Indian sprinter to run in the Olympics. P.T. Usha competed in the 100 and 200 at the 1980 Moscow Games, but Chand will be the first since qualification standards were introduced at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.For Chand, it has been a long hard journey to Rio.The daughter of poor weavers in the eastern state of Orissa, she fought poverty before her athletic talent was noticed by state sports authorities.At 18, Chand had just returned from winning two gold medals at the Asian junior championships and was looking forward to representing India at the world junior championships and the Commonwealth Games in Scotland when she was dropped from the team because of the excessive but naturally occurring testosterone.After CAS ruling last July, she and her coach Nagapuri Ramesh moved to the southern city of Hyderabad to begin a punishing regime to qualify for Rio.Dutee has great resilience. For her to continue performing while under so much pressure and so much scrutiny, is remarkable, says Payoshni Mitra, Chands government-appointed adviser, who lobbied for Chands reinstatement to competition.Her case was similar to that of South African 800-meter runner Caster Semenya, who was sidelined from competition for almost a year after winning the 2009 world championship at age 18. Semenya was eventually cleared by the IAAF, and won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics. She will be in Rio, too.At Almaty on Saturday, local Viktoriya Zyabkina won the 100 in 11.15, and Chand trailed in a relieving 11.244.There was pressure to qualify for the Olympics and I was tense but now, as I have qualified, my dream has come true, Chand was quoted as saying in The Indian Express newspaper. I now hope to enter the final at the Olympic Games.---Follow Nirmala George at: twitter.com/NirmalaGeorge1 Stitched Miami Dolphins Jerseys .500 on the season.

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Tiger Woods used to have no trouble returning to golf after a long layoff.That was when he was much younger, before the injuries and surgeries began piling up, before the annual arrival of more young players who made golf stronger than ever.Woods first had to miss tournaments because of injury going into the 2003 season. Woods had surgery on his left knee during the offseason and didnt play for two months until he returned at Torrey Pines.He won by four shots.Woods stayed away from golf for 10 weeks in 2007, the year his first child was born. He returned at his Target World Challenge.He won by seven shots.But this is different.The Hero World Challenge presents the stiffest challenge on so many levels, starting with the fact it was two back surgeries that kept him out for 15 months, an injury that left him so debilitated that at times he wondered if he had played his last tournament.Im going to be focused, Im going to do what I can do and put the ball in the correct spots, give myself looks and try to bury these putts and post scores, and get myself in that mix come Sunday afternoon, Woods said.That mission, though it seems impossible, starts Thursday.A look at some of the other times Woods came back from a long break:June 15, 2006 -- The death of his father, Earl, caused Woods to sit out for two months, including the Masters, until he showed up at Winged Foot for the U.S. Open. He struck the ball beautifully during Wednesdays practice round, but once the tournament started, it took him half of a round to get going, and it cost him. Woods shot 76, followed with another 76 and missed the cut for the first time in a major. He played nine more stroke-play tournaments that year, winning six of them and finishing runner-up in the other three.June 12, 2008 -- Woods had arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee two days after the Masters, and choose not to fix his ACL to avoid a long recovery. Doctors discovered two stress fractures in his left tibia and he was advised to rest for six weeks. Instead, he played the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines and woon in a playoff for his 14th major.dddddddddddd.Feb. 25, 2009 -- After nearly nine months away to recover from reconstructive knee surgery, Woods returned at the Match Play Championship and beat Brendan Jones of Australia in the first round. He lost to Tim Clark in the second round, but won at Bay Hill two tournaments later.April 8, 2010 -- Woods disappeared from public for two months after revelations of multiple extramarital affairs. He chose to end a five-month break at the Masters, under the greatest scrutiny. He broke par in the opening round for the first time at Augusta National and tied for fourth, five shots behind Phil Mickelson.Aug. 4, 2011 -- After withdrawing after nine holes at The Players Championship with leg injuries, Woods returned nearly three months later at the Bridgestone Invitational, which he had won seven times. He opened with a 68 and tied for 37th. The next week, he missed the cut at the PGA Championship.June 26, 2014 -- Woods had his first back surgery in late March that knocked him out of the Masters. He tried to return two months later -- far too soon, he later conceded -- at his Quicken Loans National at Congressional. With rounds of 74-75, he missed the cut.Dec. 4, 2014 -- After pulling out of Firestone in the final round with back pain and missing the cut the following week at Valhalla, Woods took the rest of the year off to properly heal. He returned at the Hero World Challenge at Isleworth , where he played more rounds than any other course. He tied for 17th, which doesnt sound bad except that it was only an 18-man field. And he finished 26 shots behind Jordan Spieth.April 9, 2015 -- Horrific chipping at Phoenix and Torrey Pines led Woods to take two months off to fix it. He returned at the Masters, his chipping was not a major problem, and he tied for 17th. That was his best finish of the year until the Wyndham Championship.And then he didnt play another tournament. That hiatus ends on Thursday in the Bahamas.

My first job after graduating from university was at a news channel where I was assigned to international news stories. Soon after I joined, news broke one day of the Palestinian political/militant group Hamas storming the offices of another Palestinian political/militant entity, Fatah. As someone who had been out of touch with developments in Palestine for a few years, I was shocked at the idea of a Palestinian civil war. Without knowing the context of the developments, the final outcome seemed rather out of the blue.On Tuesday, as cricket fans across the world tuned in to the score England had put up in the third ODI against Pakistan, I sensed a similar feeling of incredulousness amongst some. How had Pakistan just conceded the largest score in the history of the international 50-over game? How had a side famed for its bowling done worse than even any Associate side had managed in ODIs? Seen from afar, it seemed completely out of the blue. Yet the seeds of this destruction were laid several years before.It is generally agreed that it is Pakistans batting that has let them down in recent times. Their bowling has always been seen as being among the better attacks in the world. But the reality is that Pakistans bowling has been in a tailspin for a while now.At the 2015 World Cup, Pakistan exited as one of the worst batting sides on display. But by defending small totals against South Africa and Zimbabwe, and then giving Australia a scare with another one, their bowling seemed to have left its mark on the tournament. In reality, though, its impact was captured symbolically by Wahab Riazs much-celebrated spell against Shane Watson, which had little impact on the match and didnt lead to consistent performances for Wahab.The death knell for Pakistans bowling had been rung a year earlier, when the ICC began its crackdown on chucking. It led to bans on the worlds No. 1- and No. 7-ranked ODI bowlers, Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez.From the 2011 World Cup till the bans, Pakistans bowling had revolved around spin, with Ajmal the main threat and Hafeez and Shahid Afridi playing support. Junaid Khan was the main fast bowler, alongside Umar Gul and Mohammad Irfan. This spin-led attack ensured that Pakistans win-loss record was fourth among the top ten sides for this period, and that their bowling averages and economy rates among the best.Following Ajmals and Hafeezs bans, Pakistan adopted a completely different policy, perhaps with one eye on the impending World Cup. The line-up became pace-heavy, with Afridi thrust in as the main spinner. Zulfiqar Babar was the only specialist spinner tried during this time. The results were disastrous - Pakistan only won three matches in 13, with their attack now boasting the worst average in the world, and among the worst economy rates too.During the World Cup, Pakistan used pace to end up with the best bowling record outside the semi-finalists. But, bizarrely, they persisted with this pace-heavy set-up even after the tournament ended. In the year and a half since then, Anwar Ali, Irfan and Wahab have bowled the most overs for Pakistan among fast bowlers, while the two most frequently used spinners have been Yasir Shah and Shoaib Malik. Yasirs phenomenal Test record has allowed him to play on despite average showings with the white ball, while Malik has been a part-timer. During this time, Pakistan have the second-worst bowling attack in the world in terms of averages - and thats including the Associates.In the immediate aftermath of the bans, it might have made sense to play with an attack keeping the World Cup in mind, although even then the use of just one (woefully out of form) mainline spinner felt odd. Since then, however, the persistence with a pace-heavy attack has been absolutely baffling.Venues in England are not ideal for playing with three spinners, but Pakistan also lack modern white-ball fast bowlers who have an armoury of cutters and slower ones. The one such exponent they tried, Imran Khan Jr, was hastily dropped after only three (unremarkable) T20I outings. Other than him, the young quick bowler Rumman Raees is the only other promising example.All this has meant that Pakistan dont have the resources used by modern bowling attacks, and they have also refused to use the tactics that provided them with their most recent success.In the summer of 2007, it took me a few weeks of research to understand that the conflict between Fatah and Hamas had been brewing for a long time and that the conditions had made it inevitable in many ways. Similarly, the 444 posted by England at Trent Bridge had been coming for a long time. And unless Pakistan start rethinking their tactics, this wont be the only bowling disaster they will have to live through. http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Deshone-Kizer-Jersey/ .

Its definitely something that I pride myself on now - to be a leader at the club and put this club in a position it deserves to be.But while Merrin is confident in the clubs long-term future, he is adamant they could do damage this year, sitting ninth and still in finals contention.After a disappointing golden point loss to the Warriors last week, Merrin labelled Mondays meeting with the Sydney Roosters do-or-die.Its a must-win. Thats what Im preparing for. Every week from here on in is a must-win, he said.

CHASKA, Minn. -- There have been times when Phil Mickelson was accused of not caring about the Ryder Cup. Whether it was the changing of golf equipment on the eve of the 2004 matches, or a horrific singles loss to Wales Phillip Price in 2002 or simply his overall losing record, detractors had plenty of fodder.There is substantial evidence to the contrary, but if you are looking for one perfect example, it was that rather dubious celebratory leap Mickelson took Sunday on the 18th green at Hazeltine National, where he had just holed an 18-foot birdie putt.It was reminiscent of Mickelsons jump on the 18th green at Augusta National in 2004, when his birdie putt on the final green barely squeaked into the cup, assuring him his first major title at the Masters.The Ryder Cup is not a major championship, but it is nonetheless filled with the pressure-packed moments that mark the biggest individual tournaments in the game. Mickelson has seen it all, and he seemed to want that putt Sunday as much as he wanted anything in the game.Its a very emotional deal, and the putt on the last hole, I wasnt sure if it would hang in there, said Mickelson, who mocked his own celebration. I just kind of dropped down to my knees and when it went in, just that excitement propelled me up. Usually, I need a little assistance.It was his 10th birdie of the day, and not even Sergio Garcia matching him with a birdie of his own to assure a tie could take away from the moment. At 46, in what might very well have been Mickelsons last Ryder Cup as a player, he performed at an extraordinary level, delivering a half point at a time Sunday when it seemed it might very well be needed.In the end, the United States cruised to a 17-11 victory over Europe, putting an end to a run of defeats that caused such frustration that Mickelson lashed out at the system, and captain Tom Watson, two years ago in Scotland.All of this has been exhausting, Amy Mickelson, Phils wife, said on the course Sunday while following the match along with their two daughters and son. Im so closer to it and see what has been going on, and I know some tough things had to happen. But Ive seen such a difference for these guys, and all these young guys have been great, theyve been so invested.Mickelson would never say he has been vindicated, but it certainly would not have looked good had the U.S. lost and he played poorly. The U.S. won and Mickelson went 2-1-1, as his halved match against Garcia produced some of the best golf of the week.Four of Leftys 10 birdies came within the last five holes. Not to be outdone, Garcia birdied the last four. Between them they had 19 birdies and just a single bogey. Both players shot 63 on their own ball. It was fitting that their match ended in a tie.With all he had on him coming into the week ... yeah, it was incredible for him to perform like that, said Jim Bones Mackay, Mickelsons longtime caddie.There was Mickelsons takedown of Watson two years ago at Gleneagles, which led to a serious look at the way the Americans had been approaching the Ryder Cup.Mickelson long believed that continuity and putting the players in the best position to win, but eliminating some of the outside factors that go into the Ryder Cup, was the best way forward. A task force was formed, and although the concept has been ridiculed, it produced a new unity.The pressure started when some dumbass opened his mouth two years ago in the media center, said Mickelson, whose move at the time has since been deemed to be calculated as a way to force change.Gone are volunteer presidents of the PGA of America picking U.S. captains. Now, there is a succession plan in place, one that would be easy to predict. Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Mickelson and Tiger Woods can all be penciled in as future captains. All were here at Hazeltine this week.Mickelson was so involved that he was jokingly referred to as the teams de facto captain, even though the official role was held by Davis Love III, who received vindication after the crushing 14? to 13? defeat against Europe four years ago at Medinah, where the Americans blew a 4-point lead on the final day.[Mickelson] put himself out there, no doubt, said Rickie Fowler, one of Loves at-large selections and a player who Mickelson lobbied for extensively behind the scenes. He was under pressure just to make the team on points. And when we played that first match [on Friday], he knew how much pressure was on him, not just the pressure he put on himself but from people on the outside looking in.Mickelson and Fowler earned a victory over Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan in foursomes. They would lose on Saturday morning against McIlroy and Thomas Pieters, but when Mickelson went back out in the afternoon with Matt Kuchar, he helped deliver a four-ball victory over Garcia and Martin Kaymer.That set up the Sunday showdown against Garcia, who has been money in so many Ryder Cups. Garcia was just 1-2-2 this time, but he nonetheless left Minnesota with a 19-11-7 record in eight Ryder Cup appearances.Mickelson fell behind when Garcia birdied the first, but there was never more than a 1-hole difference the rest of the way. At both the 17th and 18th holes, with the match tied, Garcia hit his approach inside of Mickelson, who nonetheless made the putt -- only to see Garcia tie him. It was reminiscent of Mickelsons golf in July at Royal Troon, where he went shot for shot with Henrik Stenson, shooting a final-day 65 without a bogey but finishing runner-up.You kind of get in the moment and get dialed into that one shot and seem to get the best out of it, Mickelson said. It kind of happened for four days at the British [The Open] and it happened today. Itll be great to kind of build on it in the offseason.It is good to hear Mickelson talk that way, as if its no big deal to be thinking about a new year in golf. He has been a pro for more than 24 years, but had his coach, Andrew Getson, here this week to help him work on his game and build to the future.And really, thats what this entire Ryder Cup endeavor has been for Mickelson. Not about winning this year, although that was an added benefit, but building a foundation that will put the Americans in position to do this again.It took guts for Mickelson to say that the system was flawed. That led to change. But ultimately, playing good golf solves a lot of problems, and there was Mickelson on Sunday, playing as well as anyone in an effort to help the Americans win back the Ryder Cup.

EVANSTON, Ill. -- Offenses are granted four downs in college football, so Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck figured he might as well use them all.The Broncos going 4 for 4 on fourth down was a key in their upset of Northwestern on Saturday.We didnt come here to lay up. We came here to win a football game, Fleck said. I believe in this football team and I believe in our short-yardage system. It comes down to attitude, how and will, and I believe thats what we do well.Zach Terrell threw for 218 yards and a touchdown and Jamauri Bogan had a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth down in Western Michigans 22-21 victory.Terrell was 26 of 36 as Western Michigans offense controlled the play throughout and held the ball for 39 minutes.Justin Jackson had 124 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns, including a 46-yarder, for Northwestern.Clayton Thorson completed 15 of 22 passes for 196 yards. His fumble at the goal line in the final minutes thwarted Northwesterns comeback attempt.I saw a lot of space, Thorson said. Could have scored, but even if I didnt, I should have gone down or something. Cant fumble on the 1.The outcome essentially came down to two close plays at each goal line in the final minutes. Bogans touchdown with 5:38 remaining gave the Broncos the lead. The play was reviewed because there was a question whether his knee was down before he crossed over. The call stood.Our fullback, Leo (Ekwoge), went in there and destroyed things, our offensive line played really well and God was with me and he helped me tuck my leg just a little bit more, Bogan said.On the ensuing possession, Northwestern drove down the field before Thorson was hit by linebacker Robert Spillane and fumbled. Davontae Ginwright recovered for the Broncos for the touchback before stepping out of bounds. The play was reviewed because Ginwright threw the ball back on the field -- it was recovered by Northwestern -- but it was ruled he stepped out before getting rid of the ball.Not to discredit Western Michigan, but when you play as poorly as we did, those calls, the football gods, they go against you. Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald said. You get what you earn, and thats what we deserve.Fleck was pumped, but was careful not to make too much of the win.How big is it? Its as big as the outside world makes it, he said. Inside our circle, its 1-0, and thats it.STRONG DEBUTWestern Michigan freshman kicker Butch Hampton converted three of four field goals with a long of 47. He missed his first attempt, hitting the crossbar from 50 yards out.How bout your first kick as a true freshman from 50? Fleck said. I think you saw what he could do.MENTOR-STUDENTAs a 35-year-old coach, its not surprising that Fleck looks up to Fitzgerald, who took over the Wildcats when he was 31.He is what I want to become, and thats a huge compliment to him because he does things the right way, Fleck said. He is one of my all-time mentors.THE TAKEAWAYWestern Michigan: The Broncos were picked as favorites to win the Mid-American Conference this season and they showed why. Terrell ended last season as the seventh-most efficient quarterback in the country and picked up right where he left off. Zach Terrell is the toughest football player Ive ever coached, Fleck said.Northwestern: The Wildcats tied a school record with 10 wins last season, but the opener showed they have a ways to go before they can think of achieving that type of production this season. For now, Jackson will be the workhorse on offense until Thorson and the young receiving corps work out the kinks. Defensively, the Wildcats struggled to get consistent pressure on Terrell and were regularly outmuscled on short-yardage plays.UP NEXTWestern Michigan: The Broncos host North Carolina Central on Saturday night.Northwestern: The Wildcats host Illinois State on Saturday in the second of four straight home games to start the season. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Deion-Sanders-Jersey/ . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Jaylon-Smith-Jersey/ .

The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. LOS ANGELES -- Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., the biggest names in Mexican boxing, are in talks to meet May 6 -- Cinco de Mayo weekend -- on HBO PPV, both camps told ESPN on Thursday.Were in talks, weve been talking for about a month, Eric Gomez, president of Golden Boy Promotions, Alvarezs promoter, said. Theres interest on both sides.The biggest obstacle is the weight. If a deal is hammered out the weight would probably 164 or 165 pounds. Alvarez has never boxed above 155 pounds. Chavez has been 167? or heavier for his past five fights dating to 2013.Alvarez, a reigning junior middleweight titleholder, is the former middleweight champion but fought those bouts at a catchweight of 155 pounds rather than division limit of 160 pounds.Chavez is a former middleweight titleholder but he has been fighting in the 168-pound super middleweight division in recent years, and even slightly heavier.The catchweight is being negotiated, Gomez said. Canelo has a limit he wants, they have a limit Chavez wants, so its being negotiated.Besides the weight there is also the issue of the rancor between Golden Boy and Chavez adviser Al Haymon, whom Golden Boy is suing for $300 million. It filed the federal lawsuit in May 2015 alleging that Haymon and his various business entities have repeatedly violated antitrust laws and the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act.If the fight can be made it figures to be a big one. There was a lot of talk about the showdown a few years ago, before Chavez, one of the fighting sons of Hall of Famer Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., was easily defeated by Sergio Martinez in their 2012 middleweight world championship fight and eventually moved up in weight.It would be a good fight. The Mexican fans would really get behind it, Gomez said. Its two really big names. Were far apart, but were in talks. Hopefully, we can make it.Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KOs), 30, has failed to make weight for several fights, had issues outside the ring and went just 3-2 in a five-fight stretch. AAfter 17 months out of the ring, he returned on Dec.dddddddddddd 10. He made weight (167.9 pounds) and looked good in a one-sided 10-round decision against fringe contender Dominik Britsch.Chavezs camp said it was also hopeful they could make the match.He had some bad people in his life making bad decisions and giving him bad advice, said Sean Gibbons, Chavezs longtime matchmaker. Julio was derailed from the path that he needed to be on. Hes back on the right path. He made weight comfortably for Britsch. He made the weight so easy. The contract was 169 but he said, Im coming in under to show that Im back and serious. He proved to the people hes serious and that hes for real. The time is right and he can make the weight. The fight with Britsch was to prove to the public that he is ready for Canelo or (Gennady) Golovkin.Gibbons, who said he would like to see the fight contracted at 165 pounds, said Chavezs attorney, Guadalupe Valencia, reached out to Golden Boy to gauge the interest in making the fight and there was interest.Alvarez (48-1-1), 26, dropped down to junior middleweight in September and knocked out Liam Smith in the ninth round to win another title. Alvarez suffered an avulsion fracture in his right thumb, forcing him to give up a Dec. 10 date for his next fight. Now he and Golden Boy are talking about a possible February bout, although it is more likely he will just sit out until a May 6 fight, whomever it is against.If he wins that bout Gomez said the hope is that the long-awaited showdown with Golovkin will take place in September. Gomez said Golden Boy and Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions have been talking about a deal, but that the biggest obstacle is Golden Boys insistence on paying Golovkins side a flat fee -- at least $15 million -- while Golovkins side wants to have a stake, as much as 40 percent, in the event.

LOS ANGELES -- The Baltimore Orioles have five All-Stars and each of them contributed against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Manny Machado struck the biggest blow, hitting a three-run homer in the fifth inning to propel the Orioles to a 4-1 victory Tuesday night that ended their five-game skid while stopping the Dodgers five-game winning streak.We needed that, he said. Weve been scuffling a bit and weve been putting ourselves in bad situations.Machado, named an All-Star starter the day before he turns 24, sent a 2-2 pitch from Kenta Maeda (7-6) into the upper corner of the left field pavilion, putting the AL East-leading Orioles ahead 4-1. Machados 19th homer would have registered 453 feet -- his longest shot of the season -- had it landed unimpeded, according to Statcast.Yeah, I got it good, Machado said. Good hitters will hit it hard over the stadium, but I guess I dont have that pop.The Orioles lead the majors with 129 home runs; they had 56 in June.Chris Tillman (11-2) allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, struck out two and walked two while facing the Dodgers for the first time in his career.Its what we needed, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Chris was the difference. Hes been good all year. Hes been pretty consistent.Tillman, a right-hander from Anaheim, California, had his career-high nine-game winning streak snapped last week, and wasnt selected for next weeks All-Star Game in San Diego.He was pretty bummed out about his last two starts, Machado said. I know he puts a lot of emphasis and a lot of pride into it. Knowing him, he wanted to come and prove a point today. He did that and more.Zach Britton pitched the ninth to earn his AL-leading 24th save in as many chances. The Dodgers briefly threatened, with Adrian Gonzalezs leadoff single before Yasiel Puig struck out and pinch-hitter Justin Turners long fly was caught at the wall by right fielder Joey Rickard. Howie Kendrick struck out swinging to end the game.Brach struck out the side swinging in the eighth before turning it over to Britton, who hasnt allowed an earned run in his last 24 games since May 5.Baltimore catcher Matt Wieters, another All-Star, went 2 for 4 with one strikeout.Maeda tied season highs in runs allowed (4) and hits (7) in four-plus innings, which equaled the shortest outing of his career. The right-hander struck out five and walked three while dropping to 3-6 in nine home starts this season.From the first inning on, it seemed like Kenta was laboring, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. He couldnt command the fastball. Youve got to make major league hitters respect your fastball. When they can lock in on a certain pitch it makes it that much tougher.The Orioles tied the game 1-all in the second when Jonathan Schoop flied into a forceout from right fielder to shortstop, scoring All-Star Mark Trumbo, who went 1 for 3 with a walk and two strikeouts.Dodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager doubled in the first inning, extending his hitting streak to 18 games, the NLs longest this season. He scored on Gonzalezs single, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.The loss ended the Dodgers 10-game home winning streak. They didnt muster a hit past the fifth inning.DODGERS ALL-STARSAt 22 years, 69 days, Seager is the youngest position player to be named an All-Star in Dodgers history. Hes the clubs second rookie shortstop to be selected, joining Bill Grabarkewitz in 1970.Closer Kenley Jansen joined Seager as a first-time All-Star in his seventh season and is the teams first reliever to be named since 2010. Jansen ranks second among NL relievers with 25 saves.Left-hander Clayton Kershaw became the first Dodger to make six straight All-Star games since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981-86, but hell miss the game with a herniated disc. He leads the majors with a 1.79 ERA.ORIOLES ALL-STARSShowalter told Brachs wife, singer-songwriter Jenae Cherry, to pass along the news to her husband.I told her -- shes an up-and-coming country music singer -- she should write a song about it, Showalter said. Id buy it.URIAS TO MINORSThe Dodgers sent 19-year-old pitcher Julio Urias to Triple-A Oklahoma City after eight starts in an effort to control his innings. The left-hander was 1-2 with a 4.95 ERA after making his big league debut on May 27 at the New York Mets. The team has Urias on an unspecified innings limit this season. He was scheduled to be sent down earlier, but several injuries to the rotation forced an extended stay.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: RHP Darren ODay, on the DL with a right hamstring strain, could pitch a rehab game over next weeks All-Star break. Its not a good injury, Showalter said. If he pushes it, hes going to miss the whole year.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Kevin Gausman (1-6, 3.97 ERA) has received 3.20 runs of support and the team is 5-9 in his 14 starts.Dodgers: RHP Bud Norris (4-7, 3.89) makes his second start since being acquired from Atlanta last week. He pitched for the Orioles from 2013-15, with a 21-20 record and a 4.65 ERA. His best year for the Os was in 2014, when he posted career highs in wins (15) and ERA (3.65).
