The London 2017 World Athletics Championships organising committee has been rocked by a third resignation in less than a week. Youth Athletics Jerseys . Managing director Sally Bolton is the latest official to leave her post, following last weeks resignations of deputy chair Heather Hancock and audit committee chair Martin Stewart. Bolton, who joined the organisation in 2014, did not give a reason for her decision but there have been widespread reports in the press of differences between the board and London 2017 chairman Ed Warner, who is also chairman of UK Athletics.Im incredibly proud of the work that has been completed in achieving the early milestones that lay the foundations for the events success, said Bolton.I wish the team well in what is going to be an exciting 18 months, and I look forward to seeing some amazing sport take place at next years championships.The World Championships is the flagship event for the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) which is currently battling to restore the sports image following allegations of corruption and systematic drug abuse. Andrew Triggs Jersey . Cote was eligible to become a free agent Feb. 15. Cote helped running back Jon Cornish run for a league-high 1,813 rushing yards en route to being named the leagues most outstanding player. Rollie Fingers Jersey . Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. . Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. What to watch for tonight in Game 2 of the World Series:---TIME CHANGEFans planning to see the first pitch will need to tune in earlier than expected. The start time was moved up an hour to 7:08 p.m. EDT because theres rain in the Cleveland forecast. Major League Baseball announced the shift Tuesday night midway through Game 1.Id rather do that than have the game start at 8, and then get caught in the latter part of the game with some rain. So I think its a good idea, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Indians manager Terry Francona was fine with the change, too.We can handle that, he said. I dont care what time they tell us to play. ... Im going to be here anyway by 10 (a.m.). So it doesnt really matter.PINKIE POWERAll eyes at Progressive Field are bound to be on Trevor Bauers right pinkie when he starts for Cleveland in Game 2 of the World Series. He sliced the finger earlier this month while fixing one of his many drones. Then in Game 3 of the AL Championship Series at Toronto, blood began dripping onto the ball, the mound and his uniform, and he lasted only 21 pitches.Bauer says hes set to face the Cubs. He threw a simulated game this week with gauze over the finger -- a no-no during actual action -- and there was no bleeding.Im going to go out there and execute to the best level of my ability, and its going to be what its going to be, he said.JUST OK JAKEJake Arrieta gets the ball for Chicago in Game 2 with a mostly unimpressive October resume. He dominated in his first postseason start, pitching a shutout against Pittsburgh in last years NL wild-card game. But hes 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA in four playoff starts since, including a 4.91 ERA in two starts this postseason.The 2015 Cy Young Award winner was solid this season but hasnt replicated last years success. Chicago limited Arrietas innings during the regular season hoping to keep him fresh for a late-October run, though, and the World Series would be the perfect time for a resurgence.MANAGING MILLERIndians reliever Andrew Miller threw two scoreless innings in Game 1, but also toossed 46 pitches -- his most since 2011, when he was a starter. Matt Joyce Jersey. So, will the AL Championship Series MVP get the ball in Game 2?You know, I dont know, Cleveland manager Terry Francona said after a 6-0 win over the Cubs in the opener. I just think that theres a lot that can happen tomorrow. One, we might not have the lead. Two, it might rain. Three, we could have a lead and he wont be available for as much.The Cubs got two hits and two walks off Miller.I liked our at-bats overall against Miller, Chicago manager Joe Maddon said. I liked the fact we got him up to 50 pitches, also. So there were a lot of positives with that. We struck out a lot, but Ill defend the fact that we had some good at-bats.DECISIONS, DECISIONSChicago whiffed 15 times in the Series opener and was shut out for the third time in six games. Will manager Joe Maddon juggle his lineup looking for offense?Chris Coghlan started Game 1 in right field over slumping Jason Heyward, who signed a $184 million contract to join the Cubs last offseason. Coghlan struck out in both his at-bats. With another right-hander pitching for Cleveland, will Heyward be on the bench again?STICKING WITH SCHWARBERCubs manager Joe Maddon said Kyle Schwarber will absolutely start at designated hitter again after the young slugger went 1 for 3 with a double off the right-field fence and a walk Tuesday in his first big league game since April 7. Schwarber, who also struck out twice, had been sidelined since having surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee.I thought the bat speed looked good, Maddon said. You could see on the finish sometimes maybe the brace grabs him just a little bit. I kind of noticed that. Otherwise there was no kind of negative atmosphere surrounding his at-bats. I thought they were outstanding, actually.Schwarber is the franchise leader with five career postseason homers. All of them came when he was a rookie last year.
