OAKLAND, Calif. Pat Elflein Vikings Jersey . -- It took about four months, along with injuries to some key starters, for Kendall Graveman to evolve from a pitcher at the back end of the Athletics rotation to the anchor of manager Bob Melvins staff.He certainly looked the part against one of the best-hitting teams in baseball, relying heavily on a nasty sinker and an even more effective cut fastball.Graveman pitched seven strong innings, Billy Butler hit a tiebreaking single in the sixth and Oakland beat Baltimore 3-2 on Monday night despite another home run from Orioles slugger Manny Machado.He was kind of splitting the plate with the sinker and cutter today, Melvin said. When he has both those working, he can use both sides of the plate and it can be effective against any team.Stephen Vogt homered, scored twice and had two RBI for the As. Butler added two hits.Machado, who homered in his first three at-bats Sunday, belted his 26th of the season off As reliever Ryan Dull with two outs in the eighth.It wasnt enough to prevent the Orioles from falling into a first-place tie with Toronto in the AL East. The Blue Jays beat Tampa Bay 7-5 earlier Monday.Vogt homered leading off the fourth against starter Kevin Gausman (3-9), walked and scored the go-ahead run in the sixth and added an RBI single in the seventh.Adam Jones had three hits for the Orioles.We wanted to give Kevin some breathing room, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. We saw a lot of groundballs. We knew (Graveman) was on top of his pitching, and he was.Oakland scored three runs total while getting swept in a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs last weekend and didnt get much going against Baltimore, either.Graveman (8-7) and two relievers made three runs hold up.Oaklands best pitcher over the past two months, Graveman allowed one run and six hits with four strikeouts.The second and third time through we started mixing in some of the breaking balls that I havent thrown in the past four or five weeks, Graveman said. I thought that really got hitters off and it kind of got us some early strikes.Dull retired three batters and Ryan Madson worked the ninth for his 23rd save.Gausman pitched well but is winless in 12 road starts this season. He struck out six and allowed two runs over six innings.THE GOOD AND BADAs center fielder Coco Crisp made a leaping catch at the wall to rob Mike Trout of extra bases in the second. The following inning, Crisp and right fielder Danny Valencia appeared to have trouble communicating on Hyun-Soon Kims one-out fly ball that landed just in front of both of them for a single that loaded the bases, one batter before Machado drove in a run. Dannys just starting to play some right field, Melvin said. It might have had something to do with it there.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: Steve Pearce received a cortisone shot in his right forearm that Showalter hopes will prevent the newly acquired outfielder from having to go on the DL. Pearce has been bothered by a flexor mass strain for the past few days.Athletics: An MRI on RHP Sonny Grays right forearm revealed some inflammation and light fluid buildup but he wont require surgery, Melvin said. ... INF Jed Lowrie (bunion) will see a foot specialist later this week. ... LHP Ross Detwiler will be called up from the minors Wednesday to make his As debut. The left-hander was acquired from Cleveland in a July 17 trade.UP NEXTOrioles: LHP Wade Miley (7-9) makes his second start since getting traded by Seattle. Miley left his Baltimore debut after taking a line drive off his left calf in the fifth inning.Athletics: RHP Zach Neal (1-1) will come out of the bullpen to make his second career start. Neal has not allowed a run in three relief appearances since July 21. Ben Gedeon Youth Jersey . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. Dalvin Cook Vikings Jersey . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. . Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. Ahead of this weekends Survivor Series, were taking a look at five of the most memorable moments in Survivor Series history.Moment 2:? Bret screwed Bret, 1997 Survivor Series (Nov. 9, 1997) Its rare to see scripted WWE television turn into a legitimate nonfictional dramatic affair, but thats what happened on Nov. 9, 1997. The Montreal Screwjob was as real as it gets in the world of professional wrestling.This main event saw WWE champion Bret The Hitman Hart battle The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels, a feud that dated back many years. The match itself is often forgotten as a result of what happened when the final bell tolled, but it was excellent, full of well-timed spots and a great story.However, the real story saw referee Earl Hebner -- instructed by Vince McMahon -- call for an early bell awarding the match and the title to the Heartbreak Kid. Brets unwillingness to drop the title in his home country as his contract expired forced McMahons hand and created one of the most unforgettable moments not just in Survivor Series history, but in the history of the busineess. Dalvin Cook Womens Jersey. Vince McMahon simply could not risk Bret Hart carrying the WWE Championship out of the Survivor Series and potentially to his new home, which was WCW, the then-competition. Instead, the match was rigged without Harts knowledge, ensuring that Michaels walked out of the event with the title and that the symbol of the company remained where it belonged.A fuming Hart expressed his exasperation as he literally spat in McMahons face, leading to a war of words for years until an eventual reconciliation over a decade later. McMahons Bret screwed Bret quote is a line that lives in infamy.The nature of this true story was so gripping that the scenario was worked into future storylines. In fact, we saw the same plot play out following year at the Survivor Series when The Rock aligned himself with the McMahons, meaning no WWE Championship for Mick Foley. As great as that was for The Rocks career, nothing compares to the real thing. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
