Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. LOS ANGELES -- Fresh from the minors, Juan Nicasio focused on being efficient with his pitches and throwing strikes. It worked, with Nicasio scattering three hits over seven innings to outduel Clayton Kershaw in the Colorado Rockies 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. "Thats as good of a win as weve had if not all year," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Nicasio (5-4) struck out three and walked one after being recalled from the minors. The right-hander was 0-3 with a 6.43 ERA in his last seven outings before being sent down on June 27. He was 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs. "Im working on my command, down in the zone, away, sinking," Nicasio said. "Im not thinking too much. I know they have good hitters. You show the hitter you can throw inside." The Dodgers five-game winning streak ended as they fell back to .500. "That was a clutch performance," Weiss said. "To set down a team like that when theyre rolling like they are is impressive." Nicasio earned his first win since May 19, a span of seven starts. His seven innings were the most since he tossed one-hit ball over seven innings against the Dodgers on May 12, 2012, at Dodger Stadium. "To get through (the seventh) was a huge step for him," Weiss said. "We talked about being really aggressive and attacking the strike zone with his stuff. We told him to keep it simple and attack, attack, attack." DJ LeMahieu went 3 for 4 with an RBI for the Rockies, who were 3-8 in their previous 11 games, including a 6-1 loss in the series opener Thursday. He tied a season high with three hits for the fourth time. "We didnt play very well last night so to come back was big," he said. "Juan was unbelievable. For this to be his first start back says a lot about him." Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth to earn his 14th save in 15 chances. Kershaw (8-6) struck out 10, walked one, and allowed three runs and six hits. "They just put some good at-bats on me, and that just happens sometimes," he said. "You keep battling and try to limit the damage the best you can. Cheap Swingman Nuggets Jerseys. " The left-hander had been 4-0 with a 1.21 ERA in his seven previous home starts against the Rockies, all victories. Kershaw came in with a 3.25 run support average, and didnt get any help. "It feels like we run into a good pitcher every time Kershaw throws," outfielder Skip Schumaker said. "It would be nice to give him a five-spot every now and then, but it just seems like more times than not were not doing that. Its frustrating because we want to give our boy the win." Typical of Kershaws up-and-down night was Charlie Blackmons at-bat in the second. He fouled the ball off eight times before doubling on the 12th pitch. Colorados Carlos Gonzalez struck out all four times up, and Troy Tulowitzki went 0 for 3 with a walk. But the Rockies pieced together enough offence to stop the surging Dodgers, who were 16-3 in their previous 19 games. Colorado took a 2-0 lead in the first on Tulowitzkis sacrifice fly to centre that scored Dexter Fowler, who singled to lead off. Wilin Rosario followed with a two-out single up the middle that brought home LeMahieu, who singled. LeMahieus RBI single scored Nolan Arenado in the fifth for a 3-0 lead. The Rockies loaded the bases in the eighth before Blackmon grounded out to end the threat. In the bottom of the inning, they turned a double play. Dodgers rookie sensation Yasiel Puig wasnt able to finish the game for the second time in two nights. He was removed after four innings for precautionary reasons due to a sore left hip, going 0 for 2. "It feels a lot better today, but there are a lot of games left in the season," Puig said through an interpreter. "Ill rest, get some treatment and see how it feels tomorrow." NOTES: Rockies LHP Drew Pomeranz, who lost Thursdays start, was optioned to Triple A. ... Dodgers CF Matt Kemp is debuting his own line of Big League Chew Bubble Gum called "True Blue Original." It is available for a limited time at select Los Angeles stores, and he is donating a portion of his proceeds to his charity, Kemps Kids. "Ive been chewing that since I was a kid," he said. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

WACO, Texas -- Baylor and Texas Southern dont have much in common in the win-loss column, but dig a little deeper and the Bears and Tigers show some striking resemblances. Authentic Nathan Shepherd Jersey .While fourth-ranked Baylor (11-0) is undefeated and Texas Southern (4-8) is fighting to get out of its current seven-game losing streak, they are similar in their ambitious schedules to this point.Those schedules intersect when the Bears and Tigers meet at 7:30 ET on Wednesday night in Waco.Baylor has won four games this season against top-25 opponents, including three versus top-10 foes. But the Bears 34th-ranked strength-of-schedule is seven notches behind Texas Southern at the moment.The Tigers have already played three games against top-25 competition, losing to No. 16 Arizona, No. 11 Louisville and No. 25 Cincinnati. Texas Southern lost those games by an average margin of more than 30 points, but at least the Tigers shouldnt be intimidated by Baylor.It definitely gets you ready to play a team like that with the style of play that Baylor plays, Texas Southern coach Mike Davis said. Its similar to what Cincinnati plays. In our conference, we have a lot of teams that play zone. Thats one of the reasons I like playing Baylor just because of the style of play.Texas Southern and Baylor have a common opponent in Louisville. The Cardinals defeated the Tigers 102-71 on Dec. 10. Baylor trailed Louisville by 22 points before coming back for a 66-63 victory on Nov. 25.Baylor and Texas Southern have one more similarity in that they each packed a bunch of games between final exams and Christmas break. The Bears are playing their fourth game in eight days while the Tigers are playing their fourth in nine days.Baylor is in a stretch of three games versus SWAC opponents, and it has another against an NAIA program in John Brown University. Conversely, Texas Southern battled with Cincinnati, LSU and TCU.Bears coach Scott Drew expects a postseason-like battle on the court.Mike Davis does a great job X-and-O wise, brings in a lot of good talent and theyve had a lot of great wins, especially this time of year, Drew said. The other night its a one-point game with about a minute to go at LSU. Then they played a back-to-back, which is really hard. This is a team that most people think will be in the NCAA Tournament.Texas Southerns two-day gauntlet of playing LSU and TCU was made more difficult by playing both games on the road.I thought we did a great job at LSU, but unfortunately we had to play the next day at TCU, Davis said. We had a bus ride for six hours, getting in a 3:30 in the morning. It was really unfair to TCU because we didnt give them anything from a basketball standpoint.This will also be both teams final tune-up before conference play begins.Baylor opens Big 12 action at Oklahoma on Dec. 30. Texas Southern starts SWAC play at Alcorn State on Jan. 2.Hopefully (the Baylor players) can enjoy family and friends, then on the 26th its on to the grind of the Big 12, Drew said. Its all business from there on out. Authentic Chris Herndon 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. Authentic Folorunso Fatukasi Jersey . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. http://www.cheapnewyorkjetsjerseysauthentic.com/ . Hargreaves began his career in 2008 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and has played with the Edmonton Eskimos and last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Ryan Newmans championship hopes were dealt a blow Wednesday when NASCAR docked him 15 points before the final qualifying race for the playoffs.Newman was already on the outside of the 16-driver field and trailed Jamie McMurray for the final spot by seven points. He is now 22 points behind McMurray after the penalty for failing post-race inspection at Darlington Raceway on Sunday night.The Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field will be set Saturday night after the regular-season finale at Richmond International Raceway. Richard Childress Racing will not appeal the penalty, and blamed failing the laser inspection on the car hitting the wall during the race.There was clear damage to the right rear fender and tire, RCR said. NASCAR has told us that the (laser) standard is clear and the car must pass post-race inspection even if damage has been sustained.There are currently three available spots in the Chase field, assuming Chris Buescher finishes Richmond ranked 30th or higher in the standings. Buescher qualified for the Chase with a win at rain-shortened Pocono, but hes got to remain inside the top 30 to be eligible for the playoffs.Buescher has an 11-point lead over 31st-place. If he drops a position, a fourth spot would become open in the Chase field. The three drivers currently in position to make the Chase are Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon and McMurray. Newman would need to pass one of them in the standings to overcome the penalty.In addition to the points deduction, NASCAR also fined Newman crew chief Luke Lambert $25,000.NASCAR on Wednesday also docked 15 points from Kyle Larson, but hes already qualified for the Chase based on his victory at Michigan. Chad Johnston, his crew chief, was fined $22,500 because the car failed post-race inspection. Authentic Sam Darnold Jersey. Newman has been an interesting participant in the Chase the last two years because hes used consistent finishes to advance through the elimination rounds rather than wins. Newman has not won a race since 2013, but he mathematically figured out a way to advance to the 2014 championship finale and finished second in the standings.It was an improbable showing that defied NASCARs desire to put a greater emphasis on winning.Newman again went winless last year, but again threatened to advance deep into the playoffs. He was ultimately knocked out after the second round of eliminations and he finished 11th in the final standings.Hes been on the Chase bubble before, and in 2013 had to win the race at Richmond to make the Chase. He was leading when Clint Bowyer intentionally spun to set off a chain of events that cost Newman the race and allowed Bowyers teammate at the time, Martin Truex Jr., to win the race and claim the final spot in the Chase.NASCAR was rocked by the manipulation scandal and kicked Truex out of the Chase in favor of Newman. The elimination format did not exist in 2013 and Newman finished 11th that season.Game notes NASCAR did not issue any penalties surrounding the finish in the Truck Series race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. John Hunter Nemechek used an aggressive move on Cole Custer to nudge Custer from the lead, and the two drivers raced door-to-door through the grass to the finish line. As NASCAR tried to sort the finishing order, Nemechek went to the flag stand to take the checkered flag. Custer then ran and tackled Nemechek in the grass. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Cheap Adidas Senators Jerseys . -- Delino DeShields is known for his speed, stealing 101 bases in 2012 in the minors, not for his power.DeShields homered in the seventh inning to break a tie and the Texas Rangers defeated the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Sunday.DeShields, who was recalled Thursday from Triple-A Round Rock, walked and doubled before leading off the seventh with his third home run. DeShields hit a 2-1 pitch from Luke Hochevar out to left.It so happened that today I was the guy that got us the go-ahead run, DeShields said. I was just trying to hit the ball hard. I wasnt looking for anything specific. I wanted to get on base. Before I had gotten on base in every at-bat.With the game tied and if I get myself in scoring position, theres a good chance for me to touch home plate. I got into it pretty good and got it over the fence, but the main focus was just putting the barrel on the ball and try to get on base.The loss dropped the Royals to 48-49, the first time the World Series champions have been below .500 since May 15 when they were 18-19. The Royals have lost 13 of 19 games in July.Left-hander Alex Claudio (2-1) picked up the win, pitching a scoreless sixth.Hochevar (2-3) took the loss and has allowed six runs in 6 1/3 innings in July.It was a four-seam fastball and it just took off and ran back over the plate, Hochevar said of DeShields home run. Trying to go down and away with that and it just ran middle.Rangers relievers Claudio, Keone Kela, Jake Diekman and Sam Dyson held the Royals scoreless the final four innings.Dyson earned his 20th save in 22 opportunities, but not before allowing two singles and taking Paulo Orlandos liner off his right shoulder.After stranding runners at third base in the third, fourth and fifth innings, the Rangers broke through with a clutch hit in the sixth when Mitch Morelands two-out single scored Adrian Beltre, who began the inning with a single.Royals starter Edinson Volquez left after six innings and 91 pitches, allowing one run and seven hits, while walking three and striking out three. It was Volquezs fifth straight start pitching at least six innings and he has a 2.87 ERA in that span.There were scouts watching Volquez, who is eligible for free agency after this season and could be traded at the deadline.He pitched in and out of trouble all day long, a fantastic job, Royals manager Ned Yost said.Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin left after allowing four hits in five innings, including Kendrys Morales home run in the fourth inning. Morales had three of the Royals seven hits.I tried to keep them off balance as well as I could, Griffin said. Its a good team win. Delino had a great day. I think it was good step forward for the whole team and something to build on.The Rangers won back-to-back games for the first time since June 27-28.PEREZ RESTEDC Salvador Perez was not in the Royals lineup for the first time since July 3 with Drew Butera behind the plate with a day game after a night game. Perez was in a 2-for-23 skid with eight strikeouts and no walks over six games before delivering a pinch single in the ninth.RETURNING HOMEThe Rangers wrapped up a nine-game, 10-day trip Sunday and play their next seven at Globe Life Park. They have played only four home games in the past 28 days from June 27 to July 24.RANGERS SIGN BRESLOWLeft-hander Craig Breslow, who was released Monday by the Marlins, has signed a minor league contract with the Rangers and assigned to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gary Cahill is expected to replace Kurt Zouma when Chelsea face Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Saturday Night Football. Egypt World Cup Jerseys . Zouma suffered a serious knee injury in last Sundays draw with Manchester United and will miss the rest of the season, with Cahill set to start for the first time in the league since Boxing Day.The Blues are on their longest unbeaten run of the campaign, but six of the nine games have ended in draws and Newcastle have often proved tricky opponents. Kurt Zouma suffered a serious knee injury against Manchester United The Magpies have taken more points off Chelsea than any other team over the last five seasons (13), and Steve McClarens side were 2-0 up in the reverse fixture in September before two late goals pegged them back.Team newsCahill is set to partner John Terry in defence, but its in attack where Chelsea could be short. Diego Costa broke his nose in a training session but Guus Hiddink confirmed he is still in contention to start.Loic Remy (calf) has been out in recent weeks along with Radamel Falcao (thigh), while Alexandre Pato is short of match fitness and unlikely to be included. Diego Costa will have to play against Newcastle with a broken nose Jack Colback (hamstring) and Emmanuel Riviere (knee) are in contention for Newcastle after both returned to training this week.After Chelsea, they have 18 days between matches, and McClaren hopes the break will allow three or four players to return from his lengthy injury list. Asprilla to blame? Faustino Asprilla wrongly blamed for Newcastles failed 1996 title bid? Opta statsIn the last 11 meetings between Chelsea and Newcastle, the Blues have failed to win if they didnt keep a clean sheet (D3 L4).Papiss Cisse has scored four goals in five top-flight appearances against Chelsea. Papiss Cisse has a good record against Chelsea, but will miss out through injury Diego Costa has scored six goals in his last seven league appearances, after netting just three in his previous 14.Hiddink has still only lost one of his 21 matches as a Premier League manager (W13 D7 L1) and is unbeaten in his last 16.Chelsea havent won any of the four league games that Zouma hasnt started this season (W0 D2 L2) and have conceded 10 goals in these matches.McClaren has collected just one win and seven points in 11 league games as a manager against Chelsea (W1 D4 L6) - this was a 3-0 home win for Middlesbrough in February 2006. Mersons predictionNewcastle played really last week against West Brom and could have won by four or five. But, in the end, it was only 1-0 and West Brom had a chance to equalise late on, so its worrying they didnt put the game to bed. Chelsea are a different side now the players want to have a go, they have really picked up under Hiddink.Ive got to take Newcastles dismal showing at Everton last week into consideration though, so Im backing Chelsea here. Newcastles away form has a greater influence than their impressive home performances.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (Sky Bet odds 9/1) Costa has been in excellent form under Hiddink BettingChelsea are 4/9 favourites with Sky Bet ahead of their SNF clash with Newcastle 11/2, while the draw is trading at 10/3. This fixture has gone the way of the home side recently. In their last seven meetings there have been one draw, three wins for Newcastle (all at St James Park) and three wins for Chelsea (all at Stamford Bridge). All three of the Blues wins have been to nil and a fourth is available at 13/8. Sky Bet have a series of Price Boosts available, including Costa to score in a Chelsea win at 6/4 (from 10/11) and Andros Townsend 20/1 (from 12/1) to score the opener. Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp is tipping Chelsea to win 2-1 with Eden Hazard scoring the opener at odds of 30/1.  Cheap Football Egypt Jerseys .ca!

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Royals placed right-hander Chien-Ming Wang on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis and made a series of roster moves to shore up their taxed bullpen before Wednesday nights game against the Yankees.Kansas City recalled left-hander Scott Alexander and right-hander Brooks Pounders from Triple-A Omaha and optioned infielder Christian Colon to the same club.Colon is likely to return when rosters are allowed to expand Thursday.The Royals would have preferred to bring All-Star closer Wade Davis back from the disabled list, but he just pitched in a rehab game for Omaha on Tuesday night. He was supposed to pitch Monday night but that game was rained out, forcing him to delay his outing and preventing his return to Kansas City.It would have been perfect if they didnt get a rainout Monday. Wade would have been available today, Royals manager Ned Yost said. We just needed arms. Alexander has been throwing really well. And Pounders weve seen before up here and is fresh. We just made the moves.Davis, who has been out with flexor strain, is expected to join the Royals on Friday, when they open another crucial series against the wild-card chasing Detroit Tigers.TThe Royals churned through five relievers in their rain-delayed, extra-inning loss to New York on Tuesday night. Authentic Soccer Egypt Jerseys. Wang tossed two scoreless innings in the game and did not appear to have any pain.Alexander is joining the Royals for the second time this season and tossed a scoreless inning against the Yankees in his big league debut. Pounders is joining the club for the third time this season.In other news, outfielder Lorenzo Cain got Wednesday night off as he deals with a wrist injury that has plagued him for about two weeks. Cain has been trying to play through the pain.With the off-day tomorrow, we felt lets go ahead and see if we cant give him a day today and a day tomorrow and at least get some of that inflammation out of there, Yost said. Its been pretty sore. Hell take an awkward swing and it takes him a minute or two to recover from that.It just keeps getting sorer and sorer, Yost said. Its not a thing thats going to heal within a week. Its not going to feel better for four weeks after he quits playing. But he can play through it. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirtsWholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

Cue Card has won the Betfair Chase at Haydowck, the first Grade One feature of the British jumps season, to put himself in line for a lucrative bonus. Andrew Ladd Jersey .Saturdays race was billed as a clash between Cue Card (15-8 fav) and Coneygree (2-1) and didnt disappoint with the winner finally drawing away to put 15 lengths on his rival to claim the race for the third time in four years.Winning trainer Colin Tizzard said Cue Card would be put on a path to the King George VI Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup and a BP1 million ($A1.68 million) bonus for the triple crown.Cue Card won the first two legs last year only to fall at Cheltenham.We went for the King George last year and that is the route well take again, Tizzard said.Hes got the adulation from the crowd now. For a few years everyone thought because he was so brilliant as a four-year-old he wouldnt last, but now people have latched on to him.Hes absolutely sluiced up today and hes every bit as good as hes ever been. Cheap Islanders Jerseys China . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. Adidas Garth Snow Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . http://www.cheapislandersjerseys.com/ .

The second day of the League of Legends World Championship (Worlds) played out accordingly to the preordained script -- at for the most part. The chalk teams won out and the underdogs were rolled upon.It was business as usual for the defending Worlds Champions, SKT Telecom T1, in the teams first match over the North American squad Cloud 9. The clinic began in the lane phase with star mid laner, Lee Faker Sang-hyeok shutting down Cloud 9s main playmaker, Nicolaj Jensen Jensen. From there, the Korean juggernauts were vultures picking off their prey, and they systematically finished the match with ease.It was another crushing victory for Chinese Royal Never Give Up (RNG) over a very overwhelmed Splyce. The second seed from the Chinese region came out of day two as one of the top contenders for the championship. The new patient and macro-intensive focus in the lane phase combined with the teams superior team fighting prowess is a matchup nightmare for any opponent.Winners of the day: I May and Team SoloMidI May played a complete game against the Flash Wolves. Even when the balance of the match was even, I May made the correct plays to stunt the growth of the major disrupters, Huang Maple Yi-Tang and jungler Hung Karsa Hau-Hsuan. The Chinese squad played great defense around its Varus pick and made crisp decisions for neutral objectives and map control. This is a team to scout out for because of Jinshan Jinjiao Xie and Hawoon Athena Kangs balanced attack.Team SoloMid (TSM) shook off the defeat of yesterday and utterly smashed through Samsung Galaxy. Samsungs mistakes from yesterday (overextension, poor execution in rotations and fights, and weak vision control) were exploited to the maximum degree and suffocated the teams chances for a comeback. The TSM dissection started early with a 4K gold lead at 10 minutes and never relented. This was a necessary bounce-back victory for the best North American team.Losers of the day: Samsung Galaxy and INTZ e-SportsWith so little time for improvement and turnover, Samsung Galaxys shortcomings were fleshed out and exposed by a superior team. Jaroslav Halak Jersey. The South Koreans inconsistencies that reared its ugly head toward the end of the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) split continued on day two. Despite the talent on the roster, it did not factor into the indecision and directionless approach that came after the team lost its lane phase. The resolve must be stronger, the decision-making needs to be direct, and the rotations must be clean for the remainder of the group stage, or its lights out.Just when the INTZ e-Sports hype train was ready to leave the station, reality in the form of H2K delayed the destination. In a matchup of eerily similar styles and objectives, it was the veteran European team that took firm control and dominated the short game. It took only 30 minutes for the clock to strike midnight and slap the sense back into the International Wildcard darlings of day one. That said, the loss in a macro game plan against arguably one of the better macro teams was no insult and the pool play is just in its infancy. INTZ e-Sports can still pull off a miracle tournament run, but it will take more than a dominating top lane snowball to do so.Team that needed improvement: Flash WolvesOn paper, it was tough to pick a winner out of I May and Flash Wolves, but the game was effectively over from the draft phase. This is a team with plenty of talent that should scare off opposition starting with playmaking jungler, Karsa to the damage-dealers, Maple and Wen NL An Hsiung. It was just disappointing to see a draft that did not fit the abilities of these skilled individuals. Instead of consistent and reliable engage or even longer-range poke, it was a low wave-clear and siege lineup that relied on too many variables from the opposing side. If Flash Wolves want to be on winners column, it starts with the draft. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL CheapCheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

Anastasia Hayes is a 5-foot-7 guard and the No. Neymar Jersey . 17 prospect in the espnW HoopGurlz Super 60 for the 2017 class. Blessed with a quick first step, she averaged 19.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists as a junior at Riverdale (Murfreesboro, Tennessee). Dozens of schools have offered her scholarships and Hayes has narrowed her list to six.But one number looms larger in her recruiting process than the rest: Four.As in four Hayes sisters. As in four promising basketball prospects in one family who all could wind up at the same school.Anastasia is a senior at Riverdale. Her sister Aislynn is a sophomore at Riverdale; her sister Alasia is a freshman at Riverdale; and her sister Acacia is a 12-year-old. All four players are guards, and everyone connected to the family -- including Anastasia -- has predicted that Acacia will be the best of them all.Its very important to me to play with my sisters, Anastasia said. Were a close family. We have a great bond.Anastasia, who has narrowed her list to Mississippi, Tennessee, South Carolina, Kentucky, Texas A&M and Florida, very well might be choosing for them all.According to the girls parents, Sherry and Arnett, only one school -- South Carolina -- has yet to offer scholarships to Hayes three sisters. The other five universities are all in.So when Anastasia makes a visit to South Carolina this weekend, shell have an important question for coach Dawn Staley.So what are you waiting for?A born fighterHayes parents both played basketball in high school. In fact, they met on a basketball court in an apartment complex in Nashville, shortly after they had graduated high school.Basketball is such a family passion that Sherry said she played her favorite sport goofing around while she was pregnant with Anastasia, something she now feels she shouldnt have done.Anastasia was born via emergency cesarean section with Sherrys umbilical cord wrapped around her neck three times.Anastasia came into this world fighting, Sherry said. It really was dangerous. Her heart rate dropped, and I was in labor for three days.She fought, and she is here today, so blessed and talented.Hayes first showed her talents in softball, which she began playing at age 3. She pitched, played shortstop and hit leadoff. Even though she is right-handed, she would bat left. With her speed, her drag bunts were almost always hits.She didnt start playing basketball until sixth grade. She immediately fell in love with the sport -- and especially the nice shoes she got to wear -- even though she admits to being very bad at the start.It was a struggle at first, but she was hungry to learn the game, said Cliff Coleman, who coached her with Tennessee Team Pride.She could always outrun everybody. But, in the beginning, she would get a steal and couldnt score. She would bang the ball against the backboard.Taking flightWith her passion for the game, Hayes was a quick study. In about a year, she started playing for the Tennessee Flight AAU program, where she remains. She quit softball in eighth grade.Flight coach Tom Insell said Hayes is one of the top five high school players in the country.She has the quickest first step of any player Ive ever coached, and I have more than 20 players in the pros right now, he said. Shes a little undersized, but she makes up for it with quickness and leaping.Insell recalls a game from the Nike Nationals semifinal this summer when he watched Hayes score 27 points against a team led by Megan Walker, a 6-1 wing at Chesterfield (Monacan, Virginia) and the No. 1 prospect in the 2017 class.Anastasia can score 25 points off her defense alone, Insell said. We dont even run many plays for her until late in the game.Shes all business on the court, which is whats going to make her great at the next level. I rarely get on her or even say a word to her, and thats unusual because Im one of the most vocal coaches in the country.That all-business approach has been good to Hayes, who started her varsity career as an eighth-grader, averaging 14 points for Goodpasture Christian (Madison, Tennessee).As a freshman, she averaged 18 points at Hendersonville (Tennessee). She moved to Riverdale as a sophomore, averaging 19.4 points and 4.2 assists.Despite her bright future, Hayes has sometimes been lost in the shadow of former Blackman (Murfreesboro) star guard Crystal Dangerfield, a three-time Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year who is now a freshman at Connecticut. Blackman had beaten Riverdale seven straight times before Riverdale finally got revenge last year.It happened March 1 in the Class 3A regional semifinals. Riverdale eliminated the two-time defending state champions 73-66. Dangerfield was held to 20 points while Hayes had the game of her life: 28 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds.[Dangerfield] came up to me after the game and hugged me, Hayes said. She told me to finish it. Hayes and the Warriors did just that, finishing the season on an eight-game win streak. The Warriors won their state quarterfinal game by 15 points, their semifinal by 22 and the championship by 32.But despite all her success in basketball, Hayes has other talents, too. As a junior track star, she finished third at state in the 400 meters and fifth in the 200 meters.Thats with no personal coach and very little training, her father said. With training, some people say she could go to the Olympics.Hayes also taught herself to do back flips. Those close to Hayes say shes a good singer. She also has a 3.3 GPA and plans on becoming an orthodontist after shes done playing.I want to make people happy, Hayes said. After I took off my braces, I was smiling 24/7 because I felt my teeth were the prettiest things. I want to make people smile like that.Come October, when she decides on a college, there will be one coaching staff that will be smiling for sure. Maybe even for four. Fred Jersey . Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. Casemiro Jersey . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. http://www.cheapbraziljerseysauthentic.com/ . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. COLUMBIA, Mo. -- New athletic director Jim Sterk did not shy away from addressing the social issues that have beset the Missouri campus the past 12 months. On Thursday, he said he wants to foster an inclusive, diverse and successful environment.I have a fresh start, Sterk said. Were not a campus of turmoil. Obviously in every place, theres issues, but I feel very good about this as a place that I can be a part of. I can help, and we can help grow and heal and move forward, and Im excited about that.Interim Chancellor Hank Foley introduced Sterk and his wife, Debra, to a room of Tiger faithful that included former football coach Gary Pinkel and current coach Barry Odom.Sterk replaces Mack Rhoades, whose tenure lasted just 15 months. It was marked by campus upheaval that resulted in the removal of the university system president and chancellor following student protests, including a promise of a boycott from members of the football team, a stance Pinkel supported. Rhoades is taking over at Baylor.In his opening remarks, Sterk called Missouri a destination job, stressing a long-term commitment to the program.Im excited to represent the flagship institution of the great state of Missouri, said Sterk, a 1980 graduate of Western Washington whose wife is a Missouri native. We dont jump around. Thats not us. We made this decision to stay here long-term, and so I have no intention of leaving.Sterk served as athletic director at Portland State from 1995-2000 and at Washington State from 2000-2010 before stepping into the same position at San Diego State. Danilo Jersey. His official start date is Aug. 22.Foley led the search for Rhoades replacement in conjunction with the Collegiate Sports Associates search firm.In thinking about this hire, I looked for people who would tell me that Jims reputation was too good to be true, but to honest I couldnt find them, Foley said. Instead, Ive heard words like highly seasoned, inordinate passion, uniquely gifted. All the attributes of a prudent athletic and academic leader.Sterk is regarded as an exceptional fundraiser, having more than doubled San Diego States athletic scholarship fund during his seven-year tenure with the school.Im so excited about what his plans are leadership-wise, Odom said. The decisions that we make are going to affect this place for a long time, and Im glad to have a partnership with him that will work well, and get started.Sterk was named 2016 AD of the year by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, and he holds a seat on the NCAA Division I Mens Basketball Committee. However, he revealed Thursday he will have to vacate that seat. Kentuckys Mitch Barnhart already holds a seat on the committee, and per NCAA rules, only one representative from each conference might occupy a seat on the committee at a time. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

ST. Wholesale Warriors Jerseys China . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Strangely enough, the last-place Tampa Bay Rays have gone 8-6 this season against the first-place Toronto Blue Jays, and many wins came like Fridays as Tampa Bay did its best to impersonate Torontos prolific lineup at the plate.The Rays had three home runs in Fridays 8-3 win, giving them 179 for the season, keeping them on pace to reset the club record for home runs -- theyre on course for 218 and the current record is 199, set in 2009.Weve been hitting some home runs lately, and its been nice to see that it led us to a win, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. We got down 2-0, but came back to tie it up and then we got some big home runs.The Blue Jays held just a two-game lead on Boston entering the night, and getting wins against a last-place Rays lineup, some 18.5 games out of first, is a must as Toronto treads a close line between winning a division and missing the postseason entirely.We got beat, Jays manager John Gibbons said of a game in which his team was tied 2-2 in the sixth. We got two runs up on the board in the first and then didnt scratch one across until too late. We had some chances.Both lineups face tough pitchers on Saturday as the Rays throw rookie left-hander Blake Snell (4-7, 3.56 ERA) and the Jays answer with righty Marco Estrada (8-6, 3.37 ERA). Opponents are hitting just .200 against Estrada, the lowest average of any Jays starter, though the Rays got to him three weeks ago in a 9-2 win in Toronto.Snell had really hit a rhythm deep in his rookie season, going nine straight starts allowing two earned runs or less, though that streak ended in his last start when he gave up four against Houston on Saturday. He knows the Blue Jays all too well, having lasted only 1 2/3 innings in his only start against them, an Aug. 10 outing in which he gave up five runs with four walks, the biggest damage coming on a three-run home run by Troy Tulowitzki.Tampa Bay is long out of contention for anything other than picking up positive momentum to head into 2017. After Fridays win, they are 15-7 in their last 22 home games, and they continue to be a particular nemesis to the Blue Jays.The Rays get three more games against Toronto on the road on Sept. 12-14, and they continue to play the role of spoiler in the American League East. Chasing Toronto for the division lead are Boston and Baltimore, and the Rays have seven games against the Orioles in the next two weeks, then have their final home series of the season against the Red Sox, giving them a chance to impact an AL East pennant race they arent otherwise a part of. Golden State Warriors Jerseys .ca!

Skaters know theyre not going to be posting the same times early in the ISU World Cup season as they will later on, but theres the hope of getting off to a good start.The United States had three men and three women advance to the elimination rounds of the ISU World Cup short track speed skating session Friday.Last week I really wanted to be top 16 and it went way better than that, two-time Olympic medalist Katherine Reutter said. This week I think I can be a little more hopeful. Id be really happy if I was in the top eight, but I wouldnt be upset if I was in the top 12. ... Anything beyond that is just icing on the cake.The season is long. ... The way you race in November may have almost nothing to do with how you race in March. ... I know things can come and go really quickly.Keith Carroll Jr. moved on to the semifinal in the 1,500 meters (2:13.153) and 1,000 despite being taken out in the 1,000. Carroll Jr., however, fell during the 5,000-meter relay to take the U.S. out of contention. Teammate John-Henry Krueger advanced in both 1,500 divisions.Being here at home, I want to have a good showing, Carroll said. The relay event, I definitely feel like were one of the faster teams. We can keep up with anyone. It was really disappointing to go down in thee first round like that. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey. Individually, my No. 1 goal is always try to get through this first day and qualify for the World Cup round. ... Saturday and Sunday will be ultra-competitive. I just want to have a really good showing.Reutter starred for the women by qualifying in both the 1,000 (1:31.166) and 1,500 (2:25.940).Kristen Santos also qualified in the 1000, and Ryan Pivirotto and Jessica Kooreman both qualified for the 1,500 semifinals.China, South Korea, Russia, Kazakhstan and Canada all had strong days on the mens side as they advanced in the 5,000 relay and had all four members of the team move on in at least one other event.Today went pretty decent, U.S. mens coach Anthony Barthell said. Had a couple guys that I thought would make it through the first round, but didnt make it. But it was a good learning experience.(The goal was) to try to have as many people in the quarterfinals and semis as possible. Right now were on track for four. So thats good.The Chinese and Canadian women both advanced in the 3,000 relay and had each member advance in at least one other event.This event is the second of six ISU World Cups this season. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

CINCINNATI --?Arizona?manager Chip Hale warned other teams on Saturday about plunking Diamondbacks leadoff hitter Jean Segura, who took exception to the latest pitch that hit him. Clark Griswold Jersey .Segura led off Friday nights game with a homer and then got hit in the lower back on the first pitch by Cincinnatis Dan Straily in his next at-bat. Segura motioned toward the mound, but the umpires kept the peace and warned both benches.Hale acknowledged that Segura stands close to the plate, which makes him easier to hit. But the manager said it looked as if Straily hit him on purpose.For the umpire to give a warning takes away your chance to show Jean youre behind him, Hale said. We have to protect our teammates. We talk about it with our pitchers.I hope these [opposing] pitchers understand that if theyre going to continue to hit our players, especially when it looks like -- and it looked like that in San Francisco and it looked like that last night -- that the pitcher hit him because he hit a home run, theres going to be some retribution at some point.Segura has been hit eight times, tied for eighth most in the National League.Miamis Derek Dietrich has been hit 18 times, most in the NL.
