SAN FRANCISCO -- Whatever the Colorado Rockies needed to get their bats going, they found it for a night. Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys .Against a shaky San Francisco bullpen after ace Madison Bumgarners day was done.All-Star Nolan Arenado hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the seventh inning to give Colorado the big hit it has missed for much of the past week, and the Rockies beat the Giants 7-3 on Tuesday night to end a season-high six-game losing streak.Its a good win, coming from behind like that. Its been a tough three or four games weve had, manager Walt Weiss said. The only thing to do is keep battling your way through it. Thats what we did and broke out tonight.Colorado catcher Nick Hundley and San Franciscos Angel Pagan exchanged words in the seventh during Pagans at-bat, and Hundley said something as Pagan turned to return to the dugout after a swinging strikeout. Pagan then gestured back toward the catcher before plate umpire Carlos Torres and Hundley had a heated chat. Weiss rushed out, then the umpires gathered in the infield and both benches were warned but no ejections made.It was just some good clean fun, thats all, Weiss said.Hundley was booed loudly when he batted in the eighth, then he delivered an RBI single.Its such a cyclical game, Hundley said. Ive been bad at the plate the last week. It was big to get a couple hits in big innings.Colorado capitalized against San Franciscos shaky bullpen once ace Madison Bumgarner left, scoring more than one run for the first time in its last five games.Bumgarner, named to his fourth straight All-Star Game a few hours earlier, struck out six over six scoreless innings, allowed four hits and walked two.Jordan Lyles (2-2) pitched the sixth for the win.After George Kontos allowed a pair of singles to start the seventh, DJ LeMahieu hit an RBI infield single in the seventh against loser Cory Gearrin (3-1). Arenado followed with his 23rd home run.Colorado had failed of late to give its pitchers enough run support. Arenados big swing did it this time, then the Rockies added on late. Since the start of last season, Arenado has 14 homers and 45 RBI in 31 games against the Giants.LeMahieu drew a bases-loaded walk from Hunter Strickland in the eighth and Charlie Blackmon added a run-scoring single.The Giants bullpen blew its 17th save.Consistencys been missing a little bit from what weve seen, lefty reliever Javier Lopez said. Obviously when we click, weve shown that we click really well. Were running through a little rough patch right now, and its the big homer thats been getting us as of late, but youve got to try to focus on the good things. Were having a good first half. You dont want these little things to manifest. Well nip it in the bud.The Giants scored their second run on a passed ball in the fifth, with Pagan coming home after a leadoff triple.With the bases loaded in the third, Giants right fielder Mac Williamson robbed Rockies rookie Trevor Story -- another All-Star final ballot candidate -- of a likely bases-clearing hit for the clutch final out of the inning.Rockies right-hander Tyler Chatwood came off the disabled list from a strained middle back that sidelined him June 19. He allowed three hits, two runs, one earned, struck out four and walked four in five innings.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Colorado activated RHP Adam Ottavino from the 60-day disabled list, and he made his season debut in the eighth. It marked his first time on the active roster since having Tommy John surgery on May 6, 2015. ... RHP Justin Miller went on the 15-day DL retroactive to Sunday with a strained left oblique.Giants: CF Denard Span, who had trigger-point injections Monday in his stiff neck and missed his fifth straight game Tuesday, hit off the tee and is scheduled for baseball activities Wednesday with the hope he will start Friday against Arizona following an off day. ... 3B Matt Duffy hit on the field for the first time since going on the DL on June 20 with a strained left Achilles tendon. ... OF Gregor Blanco was a late lineup scratch with left knee soreness.UP NEXTRockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (5-5, 5.98 ERA) is 1/3 with an 8.22 ERA in five road starts but beat the Giants in one of his two previous 2016 meetings and is coming off a 4-0 June.Giants: All-Star RHP Johnny Cueto (12-1, 2.57) tries to win his 10th straight decision, and the Giants are 15-2 in his starts.

INDIANAPOLIS -- All Antonio Cromartie really wanted was a chance to play football this season.Lining up on a playoff contender that was one win away from the Super Bowl two years ago is an added bonus.Less than 24 hours after the Indianapolis Colts signed the veteran cornerback, Cromartie came back to the Colts complex and got right to work like hed never missed a day.I love the irony of it, Cromartie said Tuesday. Me and (Darren) Sproles, they called us Colts killers when we were in San Diego together. But Im glad Im here now.Indianapolis desperately needed someone like Cromartie to fill the void left by a rash of injuries. How much can Indy really expect from a 32-year-old coming off his worst statistical season since 2006? The Colts believe he can fit right in and be a prominent contributor.Two years ago, Cromartie made the Pro Bowl, then followed Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles to New York. The Jets signed him to a four-year, $32 million contract. While Cromartie cashed in, the Jets wound up getting just 26 tackles and no interceptions out of their investment.Naturally, New York cut Cromartie in April.The former Florida State player spent the next four months getting healthy, working out and waiting for the phone to ring as rumors swirled about a hip injury. When the call finally came last Friday, he flew to Chicago and left a meeting with the Bears without a contract.Two days later, the Colts were on the phone and Cromartie got to Indy as fast as he could.The time off gave me extra time to train and get myself in shape, he said. So when the call came, I said, `Come on, lets go.Now comes the hard part: getting Cromartie up to speed. Indy doesnt have time to waste.Two-time Pro Bowler Vontae Davis sprained his ankle in practice last week and is now listed as week to week -- terminology that normally means he could be out a month. The Colts other starter, Patrick Robinson, left Saturday nights game early with an injured groin and is considered day to day.Robinsons backup, Jalil Brown, also sat out Saturday with an injured ankle, and anotherr backup, DJoun Smith, was limited to 15 snaps last weekend as he continues recovering from knee surgery. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys. eteran Darius Butler would likely move into the starting lineup this weekend against Philadelphia if he can overcome a hamstring injury. If not, the Colts have six more cornerbacks who have appeared in a total of two NFL games.Its not pretty, coach Chuck Pagano said before Cromartie signed. Its a little scary right now.The addition of Cromartie might make the depth chart look more palatable. In 10 seasons, he started 133 games, has 364 career tackles and 31 interceptions -- No. 3 among all active players -- including three when Peyton Manning was playing in Indy.Injuries arent just a secondary problem for the Colts, either.Starting defensive end Kendall Langford has not returned after having arthroscopic surgery on his injured knee earlier this month. Defensive tackle Art Jones cant play until October because of a four-game suspension for violating the leagues performance enhancing substances policy.Inside linebacker Sio Moore is out with a hamstring injury and outside linebacker Robert Mathis has not been on the field for either of the Colts first two games after tweaking a knee during training camp.But with Cromartie signed and on the practice field, Pagano sounded a little more relieved.He (Cromartie) had a great workout, Pagano said. He is familiar with the terminology. Hes been in a similar system playing for Rex (Ryan) in New York, basically the same system. He started cramming last night once he got signed and got in the playbook.Game notes In addition to signing Cromartie, the Colts also signed Justin Berger, an undrafted rookie receiver, and waived receivers Marcus Leak and Andrew Opoku. ... Pagano also said Tuesday that 2013 NFL sacks leader Mathis may not play this weekend or in either of the final two preseason games.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Max Verstappen believes next months Singapore Grand Prix will provide Red Bull with its best opportunity to beat Mercedes in the remaining races of 2016. Cheap Titans Jerseys .Red Bull are the only team other than Mercedes to have recorded a grand prix victory this season after Verstappen claimed a remarkable win on his Red Bull debut at the Spanish Grand Prix. In the seven races since Spain Red Bull has had at least one driver on the podium on five occassions.Back-to-back podiums in Hungary and Germany have seen Red Bull leapfrog Ferrari into second place in the constructors standings heading into the second half of 2016.When asked whether he thinks Red Bull can beat Mercedes in normal racing circumstances, Verstappen said: Not at the moment, I think they are still too strong. In the wet definitely we have a chance, like you could see in Silverstone but normal dry conditions they are unbeatable at the moment.Of course we need a bit of luck, sometimes when they touch each other or when they have a little issue or whatever then we have a chance but on just raw speed its different.While Red Bull could have recorded two consecutive wins had it not been for a pit-stop error that cost Daniel Ricciardo victory in Monaco, Verstappen is confident that Red Bull can compete with Mercedes in Singapore.For the rest of this season, we can be close again in Singapore but all the other tracks it will be hard. In the end, for the whole season I think Monaco is still the best chance.

(Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks will try to clinch their second Stanley Cup since 2010 when they visit the Boston Bruins in tonights Game 6 battle at TD Garden. Cheap Jarvis Landry Jersey . You can listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 and TSN Radio 690 and follow along on TSN.cas GameTracker at 8pm et/5pm pt. Its familiar territory for the Blackhawks and Bruins. When the Blackhawks won the 2010 Stanley Cup, they were up 3-2 on the Philadelphia Flyers before winning Game 6 on the road, while the Bruins were down 3-2 against the Vancouver Canucks in the 2011 Stanley Cup before winning Game 6 and Game 7. Chicago, which ended a 49-year championship drought when it lifted the Cup three years ago, was down 2-1 to Boston in this best-of-seven series before taking Games 4 and 5 to move within one win of another title. After winning a wild 6-5 overtime decision in Game 4 last Wednesday in Boston, the Blackhawks notched a 3-1 decision in Saturdays matchup in the Windy City. Patrick Kane scored a pair of goals in Game 5 and Corey Crawford stopped 23- of-24 shots to earn the pivotal win. Chicago, the top seed in the West, is trying to become the first Presidents Trophy winner to claim the Stanley Cup since Detroit beat Pittsburgh in 2008. The last time a team other than the Red Wings won the Cup after posting the leagues best record in the regular season was when Colorado won it all in 2001. Kane scored a goal in the first and second period of Game 5 and Dave Bolland wrapped up the win with an empty-netter in the final moments. Crawford, meanwhile, bounced back from a rough outing in Game 4, when he surrendered five goals on 33 shots and had to answer questions about a perceived weak glove hand. "I think it was a big effort by everyone to come back, play defensively, block shots, sacrifice our bodies to block those pucks and quickly get on to offense," said Crawford. "Another good game, I think, moving the puck, moving our feet, and getting into the zone." Chicago is 4-5 on the road in this postseason, but has a chance to claim the Cup away from home just like it did when it took Game 6 in Philadelphia on June 9, 2010. The Blackhawks recorded a 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers, with Kane providing the game-winner in the extra session. Outside of Chicago having a chance to clinch the Cup, the biggest storyline heading into Game 6 involves the status of key players from both teams. Chicago captain Jonathan Toews and Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron -- the last two winners of the Selke Trophy -- both were injured in Game 5 and are game- time decisions for tonight. Bergeron did not take part in the morning skate for the Bruins but head coach Claude Julien said afterwards that he will take part in warmup and is confident hell play. Toews meanwhile, took part in the morning skate for the Blackhawks and says he feels 100% and will play. Toews, who won the Selke this season, took a hit high to the back by Johnny Boychuk in the second period. He skated several more shifts in the frame before sitting out the final 20 minutes. After the game, Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville said that Toews had an upper-body injury and was hopeful hed be ready for Game 6. "Well, its been a war, its been a battle," said Quenneville. "Its every game, every shift youre fighting for every kind of shift around the ice. Its a fast paced game. You look at every minute from Game 1 to where were at today, its been an amazing series, and relentless hockey, and commend the guys on both teams for leaving it out on the ice." Zdeno Chara scored the lone goal for the Bruins, who played half of the second period and all of the third without Bergeron. The forward left the game with an undisclosed injury and was taken to a local hospital for observation. He was released from the hospital on Saturday and was able to fly home with the team. The nature of Bergerons injury has not been disclosed, but Bruins head coach Claude Julien said he is "day-to-day." Toews has two goals and 10 assists in these playoffs, while Bergeron has nine goals and six helpers. Tuukka Rask turned away 29-of-31 shots in Saturdays defeat for Boston, which also won the Stanley Cup in 2011. Boston can look to its recent past for inspiration, though, as the team lost Game 5 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals in Vancouver to fall into a 3-2 hole, only to rally with wins in Game 6 and 7 to take home the championship. "Well, its pretty obvious. Its do or die," said Julien. "Weve been there before, and weve done well in that situation. So weve got to, again, win the next game." The Bruins are 8-3 on home ice in the 2013 playoffs. If they pick up a ninth win at TD Garden on Monday, then the teams will meet on Wednesday for a decisive Game 7 in Chicago. This series marks the first time Original Six franchises have met in the Stanley Cup Finals since 1979, when Montreal defeated the New York Rangers in five games. Boston has won five of the six postseason meetings with Chicago. Wholesale Dolphins Jerseys . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks.

The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights announced Wednesday that it had opened an investigation into Baylor Universitys handling of Title IX cases.The investigation was prompted by a complaint filed Sept. 26 by the schools former Title IX coordinator Patty Crawford, who resigned Oct. 3 amid allegations she made that senior leaders at Baylor prevented her from adequately investigating Title IX cases and running the office.Specifically, Crawford alleged in an interview with CBS This Morning earlier this month that a group of Baylor administrators made sure that they were protecting the brand ... instead of our students. She declined to identify the Baylor officials during the interview.The U.S. Department of Education typically does not identify those who file a complaint, but it made a rare move on Wednesday to issue a press release about Baylors investigation and noted that Crawford gave her permission to be identified.?The investigation is one of 281 ongoing sexual violence cases among 215 postsecondary institutions.The department also noted that it is a neutral fact finder that will collect and analyze all relevant evidence to develop its findings, but it does not typically release information to the public until it is done with its investigation, at which point it can release the date the complaint was resolved, dismissed or closed; the basic reasons for the agencys decision; and any suggestions for improvement, if warranted.While the U.S. Department of Education does have the ability to terminate federal funds -- which Baylor, even though it is a private school, receives via student federal financial aid for tuition -- it typically resolves cases by coming up with agreed-upon actions to improve the schools handling of Title IX complaints and enforcement.Crawfords attorney, Rogge Dunn of Dallas, told Outside the Lines that Crawford increased reporting of sexual assaults and sexual violence by 700 percent, and although Dunn did not have specific numbers, he said Crawford handled hundreds of cases. Crawford was hired in 2014 as the schools first full-time dedicated Title IX coordinator. In 2014, as part of Baylors requirement to report crimes to the federal government, the school reported it had a total of four rapes involving students.I continued to work hard, and the harder I worked, the more resistance I received from senior leadership, Crawford told CBS. That became clear that that was not something the university wanted, and in July, I made it clear and ready that I had concerns and that the university was violating Title IX, and my environment got worse.For months, Baylor has been at the center of nationwide attention ovver the handling of sexual assault allegations and investigations, including several that involved athletes. Wholesale Bruins Jerseys. In May, law firm Pepper Hamilton released a scathing report about Baylors handling of sexual assault allegations. That report, which was commissioned by the Baylor Board of Regents, led to the demotion and then resignation of former university president and chancellor Kenneth Starr; the firing of football coach Art Briles; the suspension and then resignation of athletic director Ian McCaw; and the firings of multiple athletic department employees.Dunn said that Crawford believed Pepper Hamilton vindicated some of the things that shed been saying and trying to do but that the universitys actions to implement the law firms recommendations fell short.A statement from Baylor announcing Crawfords resignation stated: Patty was disappointed in her role in implementing the recommendations that resulted from the Pepper Hamilton investigation. At the time, university spokeswoman Tonya Lewis told the Waco (Texas) Tribune that Crawfords demand for $1 million was surprising and her request to retain book and movie rights was troubling, and we cant explain her motivation.Dunn wouldnt confirm details of the mediation because it would be a violation of the law, but he told Outside the Lines that Crawford never had any plans to pursue a book or movie deal.The U.S. Department of Education has received at least two other complaints about Baylor this year. One was from a female Baylor graduate who had not been the victim of an assault but who said she was concerned about the culture at Baylor and wanted more oversight. And another was from Jasmin Hernandez, the woman who had reported being raped in 2012 by former football player Tevin Elliott, who would end up being criminally convicted for sexual assault and sentenced to 20 years in prison.Its unclear what happened with the first complaint. Hernandezs complaint was dismissed in June, because more than 180 days had elapsed since her last reported allegation against Baylor stemming from her April 2012 assault.Four federal Title IX lawsuits have also been filed against Baylor, including one filed by Hernandez in March. Two others involve allegations against football players. Despite being a private school, Baylor is required by the federal Title IX statute to investigate allegations of sexual assault and violence thoroughly and to provide security, counseling services and academic help to those who report assaults. Part of the laws goal is to help keep victims in school. 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 Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
BOSTON -- John Lackey had a simple explanation for his recent resurgence. Cheap Allen Bailey Jersey . "Im healthy," Lackey said after pitching eight strong innings for Boston in a 4-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. "Ive been locating the ball pretty good, but it has happened before, you know." Not this frequently, and not recently. Lackey (6-5) won his fourth straight decision and has a winning record for the first time since late in 2011. He missed all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery and after an early scare in April appears to be throwing the way he did a few years ago when he was one of the top pitchers in the American League. Lackey struck out six and scattered six hits while walking just one. The only run he allowed was a solo homer by Jesus Guzman in the seventh. "Hes been a good pitcher for a long time," Boston catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. "Its just a matter of being healthy, having a feel, having the velocity back. And thats what hes doing." Boston fans, who repeatedly booed Lackey as he struggled through injuries two years ago, cheered him as he left the mound after the top of the eighth. "Im just having a good time pitching," Lackey said. "Im not really worried about what slack I need to pick up or any of that. I missed a full season. Im enjoying feeling good and enjoying competing." Koji Uehara replaced Lackey in the ninth and struck out two, earning his fifth save for the Red Sox, who improved to 6-1 during a nine-game homestand. The Padres have lost four straight and six of seven. San Diego rookie Robbie Erlin (1-1) threw 93 pitches over 3 2-3 innings before getting pulled after Brandon Snyders bases-clearing double in the third put Boston up 3-0. "He had to work for every out he had. It drove his pitch-count up," manager Bud Black said. "The ball off the wall with the bases loaded was the backbreaker. But Robbie competed. For a young pitcher coming in here, he didnt back down, didnt scare off, went at them." Lackey last had a winning record at 12-11 in late 2011, when he finished the season 12-12 and missed all of last year recovering from surgery. He needed only six pitches to get out of the sixth inning before Guzman spoiled the shutout bid in the seventh with a shot off the top of the Green Monster in left. The umpires held up Guzman at second briefly before conferring and ruling it was a homer without going to video replay. Boston fans booed the call, but replays showed it was correct. David Ortiz hit his 500th career double in the first and Jose Iglesias added an RBI single in the sixth for Boston. Erlin was solid through the first three innings, but could not get himself out of trouble in the fourth. Ortiz led off with a single and Mike Napoli followed with a walk. After striking out Jonny Gomes for the first out, Erlin walked Saltalamacchia to load the bases for Snyder. Snyder forced Erlin to throw nine pitches, fouling off five before hitting a double off the upper right corner of the Green Monster -- just a few feet more to the right and it would have been a grand slam. Snyder was thrown out trying to stretch out a triple, which would have left Erlin liable for another possible run. Erlin was done for the night after Snyder tagged his 93rd pitch. He allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 3 2-3 innings. "I felt like I was one pitch away the entire time until that last pitch," said Erlin, who was making his third career start. "I tried to go inside, left it belt-high over the plate, and he hit it off the wall." Iglesias added an RBI single in the sixth to put Boston up 4-0, then the Padres broke up Lackeys shutout bid on Guzmans homer to left in the seventh. Boston nearly took the lead in the first when Dustin Pedroia walked and tried to score from first base on Ortiz double down the right-field line. But Chris Denorfia hit second baseman Logan Forsythe with the relay and Forsythe threw out Pedroia at the plate. NOTES: The fifth all-time series between the Padres and Red Sox continues Wednesday with RHP Edinson Volquez (6-6) starting for San Diego against Jon Lester (8-4). ... Ortiz became the 58th major leaguer to hit 500 doubles and the fifth active player to do so. ... Snyder was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket the week before and had two RBIs entering the game. ... CF Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 12 games. ... Pedroia has reached base safely in 43 of 45 home games this season. ... San Diego SS Pedro Ciriaco returned to Fenway Park for the first time since being acquired by the Padres on June 14 for cash and got a quiet but warm round of applause in his first at-bat. Cheap Bennie Logan Jersey . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. Cheap Phillip Gaines Jersey . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St.Robert Pires met with Geoff Shreeves for his first full interview in English ahead of Arsenals trip to Old Trafford on Saturday. The Frenchman talks about Arsenals title chances, the magic of Mesut Ozil and what he used to do when things got feisty against Manchester United... When Robert Pires invites me into his home for a chat Im struck as to how similar resident and property are. Tall, elegant and probably older than they look! But then again that is no surprise with Pires. The man is still training, and holding his own with Arsenals first team at the age of 43! He chuckles when I ask him about it, explaining how Arsene Wenger invites him to train occasionally, and on international weeks like this one its useful to have a body to make up the numbers. Pires carefully explains that he does not coach at Arsenal and has not been asked to by Wenger in any capacity. However, his former boss is very happy for him to pass on his experience to the current young Gunners. Pires in action for Arsenal during his playing days That said, Pires feels this season Arsenal have more experience to mount a genuine title challenge. That is one factor, the other is Mesut Ozil. His eyes light up as he speaks of the German genius. Pires desperately tries to avoid comparisons with former players, but when pushed he cant help himself and admits he does see something of former team-mate Dennis Bergkamp in Ozil. Given Bergkamps god-like status within Arsenal folklore there is no higher praise. Pires says Ozil has always had the ability to read and play the game effortlessly at a superior level, but the key ingredient is that the Germany international has now added goals to his game. Pires wants to see him comfortably enter double figures for goals every season. When pushed further, he says Ozil is potentially the key component to Arsenal winning the title. Pires compared Mesut Ozil to Dennis Bergkamp But what about their mental strength? Pires again points to the levels of experience within the squad, which should bring character and resilience with it. Cheap Chiefs Jerseys. . On that note, he says the upcoming game at Old Trafford will be a good test for Arsenals momentum, which they have gathered since losing on the opening day against Liverpool. On the subject of Manchester United, he offers an opinion on two of his fellow countrymen. He believes Paul Pogba is a world-class player and simply needs time to settle into the pace of the Premier League, while Anthony Martials best position is up top.

EDINBURG, Texas -- Antonio Green scored 24 points, all from behind the arc, and Nick Dixon added 22 points with seven assists to lead Texas-Rio Grande Valley to a 98-84 win over North Florida on Monday night. Cheap Aaron Rodgers Jersey .Green missed just four 3-point attempts and it marked the second game this season he finished in double figures all from long range.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- In the long run, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson are going to be the most important players on the Detroit roster.Tuesday, though, they were spectators.Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy went with his bench in the fourth quarter against the Bulls, and they outscored Chicago 31-19 to pull out a 102-91 victory.Its tough for guys like Andre and Reggie to have to watch a close game down the stretch, because they want to be out there, Van Gundy said. Marcus (Morris), too, but the bench guys were doing such a good job that I couldnt take them off the floor.Tobias Harris, who led Detroit with 22 points, was the only Pistons starter to get his usual playing time in the final 12 minutes. He was joined by Ish Smith, Darrun Hilliard, Aron Baynes and Jon Leuer.Tobias was scoring and Ish got us 10 assists, but it was mostly great defense, Van Gundy said. That group took the game away from the Bulls.Drummond added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Pistons, who won for the fourth time in five games.Jimmy Butler scored 32 points and Dwyane Wade added 19 points and seven assists for Chicago, which lost its third straight. The Bulls were playing their fourth game in five nights and struggled in the fourth quarter.We battled back from a 17-point deficit and took the lead into the fourth, Chicago coach Fred Hoiberg said. That just takes so much energy out of you. We have to stop digging holes for ourselves.Drummond dominated early, scoring 10 points on three dunks and two tips. Even when he went to the bench with foul trouble, the Pistons put together an 11-0 run to lead 36-21 early in the second quarter.Rajon Rondo had 10 points in his return to the Chicago lineup.Detroit maintained a double-digit lead for most of the second period, but Chicaago rallied after Jackson picked up his third foul. Cheap Packers Jerseys. The Pistons were ahead 51-44 at the half, thanks to a 16-6 edge on points off turnovers. Drummond had 14 in the half, while Butler had 16 for the Bulls.Chicago was within 51-50 in the first two minutes of the third, and took a 72-71 lead into the fourth. Butler and Taj Gibson both had eight points in the period, while Drummond didnt score for Detroit.Hillards 3-pointer capped Detroits 12-3 run to start the fourth, giving the Pistons an 83-75 lead with 7:28 to play.We had things rolling and Coach let us keep going, Leuer said. You appreciate that as a player, if you get it going and you are allowed to ride it out.The Pistons pulled away down the stretch against the weary Bulls.Weve just got to win a couple games, Butler said. When we do that, everything will be fine and dandy again.TIP-INSBulls: Rondo missed Mondays loss to Portland due to a team suspension.Pistons: Due to his foul problems, Jackson only played 10 minutes in the first half. Hes still on limited minutes after missing the seasons first 21 games with knee tendinitis, and played eight minutes in the second half. Ish Smith played the entire fourth quarter.ROTATION PROBLEMSLeuer, normally Detroits sixth man, only played seven minutes in the first half, and Van Gundy blamed himself. I was trying to keep Tobias away from Jimmy Butler and screwed up my rotation. As it turned out, it didnt matter who guarded Jimmy, but we should never have a half where Jon only plays seven minutes.UP NEXTBulls: Visit the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday.Pistons: Host the San Antonio Spurs and Pau Gasol on Thursday. 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 Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
CLEVELAND -- Barkevious Mingo never really fit in with the Browns. Cheap Carson Wentz Jersey .The Patriots will try to find an ideal spot for him.A major disappointment in Cleveland, Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 draft was traded to New England on Thursday.The Browns received a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft for the linebacker.Mingo, a former LSU standout, has recorded just seven sacks in three seasons and spent much of last season on special teams.Mingos size -- 6-foot-4, 240 pounds -- and speed have made him intriguing, but Clevelands coaching staff couldnt find the best way to utilize him. The Browns moved the 25-year-old Mingo from outside linebacker to inside earlier this summer.Cleveland declined to exercise the fifth-year option on Mingos rookie contract in May. With the trade of Mingo, left tackle Joe Thomas and cornerbacks Joe Haden and Justin Gilbert are the only first-round selections by Cleveland from 2007 to 2014 that are still with the team.The Browns now own Philadelphias 2017 first-round pick, Tennessees 2017 second-round pick, New Englands 2017 fifth-round pick, Indianapolis 2017 seventh-round pick and Philadelphias 2018 second-round pick. Cleveland has conditionally surrendered its 2017 fourth-round pick to Philadelphia and its 2017 sixth- or seventh-round pick to San Francisco.It is the second move New England has made this week after dealing center Bryan Stork to Washington.While the Browns have had trouble finding somewhere to play Mingo, he has shown a diverse skillset while getting 97 tackles and seven sacks in 46 games.The Patriots dont have a great deal of depth behind veteran linebackers Donta Hightower, Jaime Collins and Jonathan Freeny, so Mingo could possibly make an impact there.Theres also an opportunity for him on the outside, with two of the Patriots pass rushers that were projected to have key roles this season -- Rob Ninkovich and Jabaal Sheard -- working their way back from injuries.---AP Sports Writer Kyle Hightower in Boston, and freelancer Hayden Grove in Cleveland contributed to this report. Cheap Alshon Jeffery Jersey . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. Cheap Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. NEW YORK -- A flock of newcomers quickly swoops into Yankee Stadium and suddenly a team that wobbled all season turns into a playoff contender.So exactly whos gotten the New York Yankees flying so high? A rookie slugger, a fresh set of pitchers?Sure, theyve helped. But maybe its something more.Pigeon power , outfielder Aaron Judge said. Theyre fueling us.OK, go ahead and laugh. Then look at the Yankees record lately -- against the Blue Jays and Orioles, no less -- ever since dozens and dozens of pigeons began descending for picnics at the park.Besides, if the Royals can have a Rally Mantis, the Angels a Rally Monkey and the Cardinals a Rally Squirrel, why not a good-luck pack of pigeons?Sometimes, these birds arrive early, searching for new seeds that keep the grass so green and fresh. More than 85 of them recently roamed the yard before batting practice.Often, they stick around for the game, hardly ruffled by the balls that go whizzing past them.In the sixth inning last weekend against Tampa Bay, six gray pigeons lounged in medium left-center field, a half-dozen hung out in shallow center and seven others strolled in right-center. No surprise, moments later the Yankees hit back-to-back home runs to break open a scoreless game.Theyre fearless, longtime head groundskeeper Dan Cunningham said.Speedy, too.I dont worry about them too much because theyre pretty fast, star center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury said. They can take care of themselves.No birds have been hit yet. Certainly nothing like that spring training episode many years ago when a fastball by Randy Johnson struck a dove in mid-flight. And they arent pesky, like the seagulls that hover around AT&T Park late during San Francisco Giants games.Scorned and shooed away all aaround town, these pigeons relax at The House That Ruth Built. Wholesale Eagles Jerseys. Oh, and they seem to prefer day games.When line drives get too close, they simply flap away and settle somewhere else, perhaps on the warning track in deep center or near the foul lines. Or they take off toward the scoreboard and stay there for a while, with a birds-eye view.Weve been watching them fly overhead, more and more of them, reliever Tommy Layne said. You just hope they dont unload on you.Cunningham said the birds come for the seeds that maintain the combination blue and rye grass. The stadium hosts the Yankees and the New York City FC team in Major League Soccer, making for a lot of reseeding late this summer.Plus, players who spit sunflower seeds provide tasty snacks.Overall, thats brought more and more feathered fans in the last month. Not that Cunningham minds.Im not a pigeon hater, he said. Its New York, theyre part of the scene here.A month ago, Judge homered in his first major league at-bat. He fits into the Yankees wave of the future, along with Gary Sanchez, Tyler Austin and the fittingly named Greg Bird.Judge has grown accustomed to sharing his surroundings with the other birds in right field.Actually started noticing them maybe about a week ago. Kind of started showing up in little bunches, he said. Started out with five or 10, now its 20, 30, 40. Just a big bunch of them out there now.I go for a ball in the gap, they start flying everywhere. Could cause a little bit of havoc, he said.Then again, pigeons have always had a place in this city.I dont mind them, Judge said. A little company in the outfield. 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 Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Plain and simple, NFL players are unable to sustain high touchdown production. Cheap Spurs Jerseys China . Its not a knock on their talent -- scoring is more about opportunity than it is talent. Wholesale Spurs Jerseys . Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. Cheap Spurs Jerseys Authentic . PAUL, Minn. . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Anthony Joshua will go toe-to-toe with Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF and WBA world heavyweight titles at Wembley Stadium in April. But cutting through the hype, just how big is this fight?Nick Parkinson runs through everything you need to know about the much-anticipated showdown...Wembley sell-out?In terms of attendance, promoter Eddie Hearn hopes to be given permission to set the national stadium out for 90,000.If tickets sell out, as expected, Joshua-Klitschko will match the record of 90,000 set by light-heavyweights Jock McAvoy and Len Harvey at the now demolished White City Stadium, London, in 1939.It also will beat the 80,000 who saw the super-middleweight rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves at Wembley in 2014.Pay-per-view potentialJoshua-Klitschko will not be on free-to-air television in the UK and will be seen by fewer people than Barry McGuigan vs. Eusebio Pedroza (18 million), Nigel Benn vs. Chris Eubank (16m), Benn vs. Gerald McClellan and Eubank vs. Michael Watson (both 13m) in the 1980s and 90s.More recently, British heavyweight David Hayes non-title comeback against little-known Australian Mark De Mori in January attracted 3m viewers on free-to-air channel Dave in the UK.With Joshua-Klitschko set to be shown on pay-per-view television in the UK, it will have to go all out to break the record for a boxing PPV event involving a British boxer (1.2m for Ricky Hatton vs. Floyd Mayweather in 2007).If Joshua-Klitschko does 1.5m buys, as the promoters hope, setting a new British PPV record, it will bring in more than £25m and beat Froch vs. Groves II (900,000 buys), Lennox Lewis vs. Mike Tyson (750,000) and FFrank Bruno vs. Cheap Spurs Jerseys. Tyson (660,000)Floyd Mayweathers long-awaited fight with Manny Pacquiao in May 2015 got 1.15million pay-per-view buys in the UK.Overseas rights for Joshua-Klitschko will be the biggest ever for a fight in Britain. German broadcaster RTL will pay £4m to show the fight, while U.S. broadcasters Showtime and HBO are vying to screen it for more than £1m. And then there is the rest of the world rights.Big-money boutJoshua-Klitschko is expected to make the biggest gross revenue for a fight in the UK, perhaps more than £40m. Froch-Groves II is the biggest grossing fight ever in Britain after bringing in more than £22m. Both Joshua and Klitschko are expected to earn more than Frochs £8m purse.If Joshua-Klitschko makes around £40m in gross revenue, it will still be way behind the big fights in the U.S. such as Mayweather-Pacquiao (£318m), Mayweather vs. Saul Alvarez (£120m) and Lewis-Tyson in 2002 (£89m).London-boundThe appearance of Klitschko on UK soil follows the visit of Gennady Golovkin -- arguably boxings pound-for-pound No. 1 -- to London in September. The Kazakh defended his world middleweight titles against Briton Kell Brook and was the biggest overseas boxer to fight in the UK for at least a decade.Klitschko, 41 in March, will start as a betting underdog against Joshua and may not hold the same star appeal as he did five years ago when he beat Londoner David Haye in Germany. Klitschko and Joshua are both outside the ESPN pound-for-pound rankings; Golovkin is at No. 2. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
