PENA CABARGA, Spain -- Chris Froome won a thrilling uphill duel against climbing rival Nairo Quintana by a bike length to win the 11th stage of the Spanish Vuelta on Wednesday. Rogie Vachon Jersey .Quintana defended his race lead and is now 54 seconds ahead of Froome, who overtook Alejandro Valverde to move second overall.Valverde finished six seconds behind, dropping to third overall and 1:05 behind Quintana.Froome, who clinched his third Tour de France title in July, got his first stage win at a major race on this same Pena Cabarga peak in 2011 -- the year the British rider finished as the Vuelta runner-up.Froome and Quintana, who have had some memorable climbing contests on the Tour, tested one another on the category-one ascent, trading attacks before Froome edged the Colombian at the line.I have some special memories from 2011 here, but today, to add to that, is just an incredible feeling, Froome said.Froome pumped his fist in the air after completing the 168.6-kilometer (104.7-mile) ride starting in Colunga near the Atlantic coast in 3 hours, 44 minutes, 47 seconds.The stages dramatic finish promises another two weeks of Quintana and Froome going head-to-head for the title.Quintana, who has twice finished runner-up at the Tour behind Froome, said he expects to fight a war with the Sky leader until the end.We arrived together, but (Froome) was faster at the end, Quintana said. He is strong and we cant drop our guard. There are many hard stages ahead and they will be a war.Esteban Chaves trails by 2:34 in fourth place after he faded near the end of the stages 5.6-kilometer (3.5.mile) ascent.Alberto Contador, whose Tinkoff team lead the peloton back to catch an early breakaway of 23 riders, could only manage to cross the line just behind Valverde and Leopold Konig at six seconds behind Froome and Quintana. The three-time Vuelta winner remained in fifth place at 3:06 of Quintanas pace.Thursdays 12th stage is a mountainous 193.2-kilometer (120-mile) route from Los Corrales de Buelna to Bilbao in the Basque Country.The race ends in Madrid on Sept. 11. Andy Andreoff Jersey . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Tiger Williams Jersey . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. http://www.losangeleskingsjerseyscheap.com/ . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Bethanie Mattek-Sands figures shell retire the stars and stripes socks and frame them with her gold medal.In an all-American mixed doubles final Sunday, Mattek-Sands and Jack Sock won the title as first-time Olympians. And they did it against an opponent who has won as many medals -- and as many golds -- as any tennis player in history.Mattek-Sands and Sock beat Venus Williams and Rajeev Ram to deny Williams a record fifth gold. With the silver, Williams still tied the Olympic mark with her fifth medal: Kathleen McKane also won five (one gold) in the 1920s.Williams owns one singles gold and three in doubles with sister Serena, but she was upset in the first round in Rio de Janeiro in both tournaments while battling a virus. Her Olympics were seemingly over since she wasnt originally expected to compete in mixed doubles.Ram, meanwhile, wasnt even originally supposed to be in Rio. The 32-year-old was added to his first Olympic roster a few days before the opening ceremony when the 2012 mens doubles gold medalists, Bob and Mike Bryan, withdrew.Sock was also sick before arriving in Rio -- he was diagnosed with walking pneumonia shortly before departing. And he, too, was upset in the first round in singles, sounding afterward more like a tourist than a medal contender.I wanted to enjoy the experience, soak it all up, he recalled Sunday.He wound up soaking up two medal ceremonies, also winning bronze with Steve Johnson in mens doubles.For the 31-year-old Mattek-Sands, who like Sock has won major titles in both doubles and mixed doubles, colorful knee-high socks are a signature fashion statement. The American flag set she wore Sunday was not an Olympic original -- she debuted them at a past U.S. Open.It was kind of a last-minute pack, she said. I was like, `You know what? I think this is the moment. If Im going to go hard-core USA, its going to be at the Olympics. So I pulled them out for the match today.Her playing partner couldnt help but make the obvious pun -- shed be framing some socks alongside a medal she won with a guy named Sock. Buy Cheap Kings Jerseys. hey laughed and high-fived, and Mattek-Sands said, Its too perfect to actually not do that.The two American teams split the finals two sets, then Mattek-Sands and Sock won the match tiebreaker 10-7. It could have been the last Olympic outing of Williams career, though she wouldnt rule out a sixth games as a 40-year-old in 2020.Its totally about whether I want to be there, whether I want to continue to work this hard, she said.The same question was posed to Martina Hingis, who turns 36 next month and also lost in a final Sunday -- in womens doubles with Swiss teammate Timea Bacsinszky to Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina by a score of 6-4, 6-4.Way back in 1997, Williams played in her first major final at the U.S. Open, defeated by Hingis. A year earlier, Hingis took part in the Atlanta Games -- and she hadnt been to another Olympics until now, two decades later.On Sunday, both Williams and Hingis won silver, the first career medal for the Swiss star -- a feat that takes on extra resonance after she repeatedly came out of retirement.When youre winning Grand Slams, No. 1 in the world, at 16, you think you have another 10 years at least at the top of the game, she said. Now I know its coming toward the end.How soon is the end? Hingis didnt want to talk about 2020 -- though Bacsinszky is trying to recruit her for the Tokyo Games.The Olympics were always a goal for Makarova and Vesnina, bigger than their two major titles together, they insisted. They took it so seriously that Makarova was crying when she didnt play well in practice.I just really wanted this medal and I was emotional: `Why am I not playing my best tennis right now? she recalled.They played their best tennis at the right time.

Hopefully I dont get hit by a pitch or anything like that, but I feel fine.Freeman said his mother, Rosemary Freeman, was stricken through a cancerous mole, similar to the one they took off her son. She had red hair, fair skin and freckles, even more so than Freddie.People with those physical traits are often susceptible to abnormal skin growths.We have skin cancer people come (during the season), and doctors come and check it, Freeman said. They said the moles not circular. Thats when you have to go have a look, and mine was jagged.Despite the news, Freeman was in good spirits in the clubhouse. As he shared the information with four reporters, he was upbeat and laughing.Other than that, he said, I had a good All-Star break.

The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots placed starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which theoretically means he could return later in the 2016 season, but it is more likely that Vollmer will miss the entire season, a source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.Including the playoffs, the 6-foot-8, 320-pound Vollmer has played in 98 games (90 starts) since joining the Patriots as a 2009 second-round draft choice. He has been sidelined by a nagging hip injury.Oh man, I love Sebastian, and whatever he needs or whatever it is, Ill always be there for him, starting left tackle Nate Solder said last week when the severity of Vollmers injury was first learned. Sebastian is an awesome guy, one of my best friends. Therres so many things [he brings to the team], but as a group, weve just got to move forward. Authentic Keke Coutee Jersey. The Patriots have turned to six-year veteran Marcus Cannon in Vollmers absence, just as they did in the second half of the 2013 season when Vollmer broke his leg and missed the final eight regular-season games and two playoff games.In addition, the Patriots placed running back Dion Lewis on the reserve/PUP list, which was expected after they revealed two weeks ago that Lewis would undergo a second surgery on his left knee. That means Lewis is out for at least the first six weeks of the regular season and wont count against the teams roster.

India Blue 336 for 4 (Agarwal 161, Gambhir 90, Pujara 63*) v India GreenScorecard and ball-by-ball details Opener Mayank Agarwal smashed 161 off 218 balls to headline a dominating performance from India Blue in the third Duleep Trophy match in Greater Noida. Cheap Presnel Kimpembe Jersey . His captain Gautam Gambhir was run out 10 short of his century, which brought Cheteshwar Pujara to the crease to face the pink ball. Pujara finished the day unbeaten on 63, having spent more than 30 overs at the crease. With those three bossing the game, India Blue racked up 336 runs at 3.73 per over, giving no respite to the Suresh Raina-led India Green.The BCCI had reintroduced the Duleep Trophy this season and chose to play the matches under lights to see if they could host day-night Tests in the near future. To that end, Pujaras innings now and M Vijays later - he is part of the opposition - would be crucial. They are the only representatives from the first-choice Indian Test side who have been involved in the tournament so far.The other players would also want to catch the selectors eyes and Agarwal would feel he has done reasonably well, following up his 92 last week with his second first-class hundred on Sunday. Often seen as a short-format specialist - his four-day debut came three years after he had begun his T20 career - Agarwal struck 21 fours and one six and was a big contributor to India Blues 212-run opening partnership. Considering he was only 21 matches old in long-form cricket, and only recently became a reliable opener for Karnataka, his big break might take a while coming.Gambhir, also looking for a go at international cricket, struck his second successive half-century. He took a particular liking to the spinners, securing 62 of his 90 runs and eight of his 10 fours off Jajaj Saxena, Pragyan Ojha and Shreyas Gopal.Pujaras spread was a bit more even. He struck his sixth ball for four - a pull shot off Ashok Dinda - and continued finding the boundary regularly. Back-to-back hits to the fence with nine overs left to stumps brought him his fifty. Siddhesh Lad, caught for 1, was the only batsman to miss out. Cheap Antoine Griezmann Jersey .

As much as the delivery it is the exclamation - a kind of song actually - it prompts from the wicketkeeper that is worth replaying. It is such an unmistakably subcontinental reaction, audible in any number of scenes - among a group of men after a lewd joke, or, more deplorably, when a beautiful woman passes by. At a mushaira [poetry recital] or a mehfil [small gathering], you may have noticed, a clever couplet brings this on: this, Ai hai hai hai. Umer Sharif, the great Pakistani comedian, was a master enabler of such moments. Occasionally if it is just too good, one might feel the urge to punctuate it with a Maar da laa [That killed me].Sarfraz Ahmed did not so append, and why would he? His Ai hai hai hai to that delivery from Yasir Shah was enough. Words might be the worst way to capture the mastery of that delivery over its victim: this explains it sufficiently. Years earlier, Ashraf Ali expressed a popular variant, a softer, more lyrical but abrupt Aa haa to an Abdul Qadir googly that castled Kim Hughes (if youre in a rush, watch from around 4:00 but this is Qadir googly heaven, so youd be a fool not to watch it all). The bonus - and locator of surrounds - in this instance is Richie Benauds excitement on the mic (Beautiful Bosie!) but Ashraf could easily have been an appreciator of some form of subcontinent art: a dance performance, a poetry recital, a music concert, a filmi dialogue.Moin Khan was an occasional champion of it, as he still is in gatherings of adult men, amid childish jokes. But as with Sarfraz and Kamran Akmal, the loud cackle was his go-to reaction to a batsmans misfortune. Moin once started laughing two-thirds of the way through appealing for lbw off a Mushtaq Ahmed googly to HD Ackerman. It helps to have the voice of Moin and Sarfraz, squashed down but trembling forever on the brink of a screech. It isnt necessary, though.Rashid Latif was an oddity among Pakistani wicketkeepers in many ways, one of which was that he possessed a deeper voice. He was not as vocal either, but even he couldnt help pulling out a slightly stretched aah ha, when Mushtaq once bowled Dermot Reeve with a googly, or a droll ai hai when Mushy did likewise to a UAE batsman (in the same video, soon after the Reeve dismissal). The more refined response alerts us not only that the ball is good but that the entire dismissal is to be processed as a piece of high culture.MS Dhoni has the voice and bearing for it, though nobody should be surprised that he has elevated his version to a tool of proactivity. He uses it as a kind of spook tactic, for deliveries that do not take wickets but might do something special. What they do is plant doubt inside a batsman, or at least the hint that a collaborative mischief of personnel and the elements is upon him. In that way, as Dhoni must have worked out years ago, it is as good as a sledge. In the event of a wicket falling, it is a send-off, a withering one without a word even being uttered. Ai hai hai, maar da la - batsman, keeper, everyone, figuratively, literally.****Cricket does not easily forget a big-turning legbreak, such as the one Yasir bowled to Imrul Kayes. Perhaps it is because we understand the impossibilities of what is being done. It is the only occasion in life, for instance, other than when a ring is being put on it (or it is used to pick a guitar string) that our third finger from the thumb comes to some labour. The wrist must unfurl in synchronicity. And already the shoulder is going through a highly unnatural contortion, with incredible strain put upon it. Subsequently there is the pivot on the foot to consider, as well as the driving of the hips through the process of release.These are just the bare biomechanical considerations, but already requiring a rare combination of strength and dexterity. Then come the specific skills. The seam has to be positioned right; there must be enough revs imparted on the ball to first make it drift, then grip and then turn, but not do any of it too much or too little; the release has to come just right, otherwise the ball lands too short or too full, or comes out too flat, or too loopy.We might think then that the chances of a confluence as magnificent as that delivery of Yasirs - a perfect storm of anatomical gifts and acquired craft, of nature and nurture - lie somewhere between Leicester City winning the Premiership and the force of the Big Bang being just right to produce a cosmos. Or something.It is almost irrelevant that he gets the wicket at the end of it, let alone that it is a castling. Would it have been worthier to beat a defensive stroke, such as the one Mike Gatting bemusedly offered Shane Warne, or to bypass an attempt to pad away the ball? Maybe, because to beat a man when he is determined not to be beaten - as opposed to when he is determined to win - appears the harder feat. But to lull a batsman into attacking and then get him is also a triumph in the battle of personality, just in a different way to how Warne conducted it. And just foor fun, try in your head to superimpose the sound of a Moin or Sarfraz to a Warne wicket: ecstasy. Cheap Chiefs Jerseys. Something of the sheer wonder of legspin has necessarily dimmed over time. When Qadir was legspinning, it was the easiest thing in the world to shroud him and his craft in mystery. There was no video or internet, no coaches or analysts or biomechanists breaking his action down. He could bowl one googly six times but Chinese whisper it into meaning he was bowling six different ones, and nobody was in a position to dispute it. Growing a goatee was a legitimate bowling tactic then. By the second half of Warnes career, he would have had to work harder to make the batsmen in his era think something was happening when it wasnt, because batsmen were better equipped to know what was and wasnt happening. It was Warnes genius that he could still do it, even as the game and his own pre-eminence within it made it harder for him to do so. Yasir may as well be bowling naked, there is so little to hide in this age.Maybe not all the wonder has gone, though. It is still the genre of bowling most given to producing oohs and aahs and ai hai hais. Warne probably didnt see the ball Yasir bowled but such is the brotherhood, wherever he was, in his head, maybe in his sleep, he must have felt it and appreciated it: ai hai hai.****The legspinner and his wicketkeeper: this summer in England, Yasir and Sarfraz must forge a partnership. It is not a partnership as we understand others to be, between opening bowlers or batting pairs. These are two lonely occupations, one man often only noticed for his mistakes, the other usually the only representative of his kind in a bowling attack. And legspinners do not breed easily, so each one carries the flame for a species, not just for himself or his side.Unique within team dynamics, the wicketkeeper must treat the leggie as an opponent, to be conquered. He must learn to read him as a batsman does, but from the hand, because unlike the batsman, the wicketkeepers line of sight is directly obstructed. The wicketkeeper strives to understand what the leggie is doing better than anyone on his side, and that, perhaps, is why he responds as Sarfraz did in that dismissal. That exclamation is part of the bond that he knows and appreciates better than anyone just what the leggie has done.It is not an obviously prolific partnership. Unlike the prominence of a fast bowler and his wicketkeeper, or the more celebrated associations of spinners and slip catchers, this relationship demands less exclusivity to each other. Take a sample of modern leggies (Qadir, Mushtaq, Warne, Anil Kumble, Stuart MacGill and Danish Kaneria), and youll find that on average, 15% of their Test wickets were either caught or stumped by a wicketkeeper; for some, like Kaneria, the proportion is nearly a fifth, for others, like Kumble, it is less than a tenth. On average, they do not even combine for one dismissal per Test - from this sample, Kaneria-Kamran Akmal came closest, with 39 dismissals in 43 Tests together.That last stat is a statutory warning to not burden these numbers with excessive meaning. Kaneria-Akmal began well but the dysfunction that grew between them from 2006 was central to dysfunctional sides. Kaneria never said so publicly at the time, but each time he came on to bowl, he did so with zilch faith in Akmals ability. Instead, when they are operating together there must be no misunderstanding, no gripes or masked frustrations. Communication is vital, even if it is just to ask whats for dinner tonight before the last ball of the day. A good, working combination becomes a useful index of the health of a side.Sarfrazs work to spin, and to Yasir, has not always been assertive; that they have combined for just one catch in 12 Tests is not simply the by-product of how these pairings operate but the result of several missed chances. Conditions in England for the uninitiated wicketkeeper, as Akmal discovered a decade ago, can be so unique as to derail a career. Not many chances will come in the first place, so the price of Sarfraz not holding on to the few that do will be steeper.There is some promise, not least among seven stumpings. The one to get rid of Dimuth Karunaratne last year in Galle, off a ball that turned a mile, emerged from within the tangle of an attempted shot and was rising another couple when Sarfraz took it, was a peach. This was not as swift or smooth as Ian Healys celebrated stumping of Graham Thorpe in Perth once - to a Warne delivery that he took shoulder high. That was unreal. But Sarfraz did finish this at least, with function if not form. A couple against England last year similarly offset an inherent clunkiness with the alertness to get the job done.Given how their leggie and wicketkeeper have gone on the last two tours of England, Pakistan wont care much how it is done, as long as it is.

* This post contains spoilers. Ted Lindsay Jersey . The biggest question lingering from the first episode of Pitch, was how sustainable is a television show like this? In fairness, thats a question most television shows face. I doubt people would have bet that Greys Anatomy would get to a 13th season, and by the way, the scripted program is still finding new material for the team at?Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.Pitch invests in its characters backstories and relationships as a means of augmenting the center story of its lead character, Ginny Baker, who is trying to make it in the big leagues. The result is a rich, full series that provides additional options for character development.In other words, Pitch is deep, yall.Plenty happened in the latest episode, which is aptly titled The Interim, but what really takes center stage is Baker struggling with the added media attention from Ginsanity -- the corny cousin of Linsanity from 2012 -- and how to use (or not to use) her elevated platform. No one can stop talking about her. The media wants her to comment on a sexual assault case in Florida; and a video of the Padres manager, Al, making sexist comments about her surfaces.Through it all, she insists that shes one of the guys and tells her agent, Im a ballplayer, like shes Monica from Love & Basketball yelling at Quincy.Ginny Baker, however, is not just one of the guys, no matter how much she wants to be, and thats not really what this is about anyway. Nestled within the conversations between Baker and her agent, teammate Mike Lawsons rousing pregame speech, and the probable firing of Al (Dan Lauria) is some exploration of identity politics.The Interim quietly asks, what does it really mean to be going through this experience as a woman, like Ginny Baker? What are her responsibilities? What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a captain? Are you still a good man if youre politically incorrect? And what matters more ... intent or impact?The answers to those questions are the beating heart of the show Pitch strives to be. During a set visit in August, executive producer and showrunner Kevin Falls said Pitch was about the human condition. Identity politics are absolutely part of what make up the human experience, and the series certainly does not shy away from that.While sitting across from real-life late show host Jimmy Kimmel, fictional character Ginny Baker says, It seems like Im making a statement just by existing lately.Thats a loaded statement, and something that is surely relatable to many people watching the show. Baker is caught between a rock and a hard place. She desperately wants to fit in with her teammates and play baseball, but she also is having to navigate a previously unwalked path, all the while attempting to hold on to her precarious situation as a recently called-up pitcher who could be sent down from the majors at any moment.The struggle around identity, however, is not just limited to Baker. Her story is just the most prominent.In an interesting scene, Padres owner Frank Reid (Bob Balaban) discusses manager Als fate with Oscar Arguella (Mark Consuelos), the GM. Reid comments to Arguella that in addition to his getting hired because hes good at his job, he also looks like Spanish Superman.Im Mexican, Arguella responds.A few moments later when Reid tells Arguella he doesnt have him over for dinner because he doesnt get close to his employees, Arguella says, I thought it was because Im Mexican.This is interesting, not only because Reid admits to not being color-blind and implies that he values a perspective of someone who is not a mirror reflection of himself, but also because Arguella has clearly questioned why he hasnt been invited to his boss place for dinner. His own ethnicity is clearly salient to him, and his admission leaves viewers wondering what happened in his life to make him take pause at Reids distance.This is an important and palpable moment at a time when American society struggles with wanting to be color-blind and how to deal with racial and ethnic diversity. This is not unlike the sentiment Ginny is navigating in trying to decide whether her gender matters. Of course it matters, and so does race.What doesnt matter is how much we try to mute pieces of ourselves. They shine through anyway.Its the response that counts. Steve Yzerman Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Anthony Mantha Jersey . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. http://www.redwingscheapjerseys.com/?tag=pavel-datsyuk-jersey . "No difference at all," chirped U.S. roommate and linemate James van Riemsdyk. "Its still the same cranky Phil. Supercoach Wayne Bennett fears the NRL is vulnerable to spot fixing by lone wolf players.Bennett believes the wide array of betting markets now available on every NRL match would make it possible for players to manipulate small factors of a match without their coach or teammates being aware.Its probably more open to manipulation than its ever been because youve got so many options to bet these days, Brisbane coach Bennett said.Thats your challenge as a coach and as a club.You can have maybe one or two lone wolves in your joint that just do things.You dont really notice but because of the multiples that they can bet on then that gives them that opportunity.The seven-time premiership-winning coach admitted he was surprised on Wednesday when NSW Police launched their strike force which is expected to interview dozens of players, officials and others over allegations of match fixing in NRL games.Three Manly games are believed to be at the centre of thee investigations, including losses to Parramatta and South Sydney last year, as well as one against the Eels in 2016. Justin Abdelkader Jersey. ut Bennett said the idea of fixing matches was foreign to him.I cant imagine one of my players throwing a game or wanting to be involved in that, he said.Thats not part of our culture or part of our psyche at this club.Ive been here for 24 years, 30 years in the NRL ... Ive been to two other clubs and I never saw it at those clubs either.Asked if the game should cut its ties with betting agencies, Bennett admitted he had been troubled by frequent in-play advertising of betting odds.Ive seen theyve cutback on the ads in game-time, he said.I was certainly offended by that as a parent and as a grandparent.Outside of that, we live in a free country and we should be allowed to make our own choices.

NEW YORK -- San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey left Friday nights game at Yankee Stadium a couple innings after fouling a ball off his right foot. Replica Argentina Jerseys .X-rays were negative and Posey was listed as day to day.Posey nicked himself in the second inning and exited in the fourth. He had walked and singled before Trevor Brown replaced him against New York.Posey is a four-time All-Star and started the showcase game earlier this month. He is hitting .288 with 12 home runs and 44 RBI this year.The NL West-leading Giants already have outfielder Hunter Pence and infielder Joe Panik on the disabled list, among others. Marcos Rojo Jersey . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. Maximiliano Meza Jerseyhttp://www.cheapargentinajerseysauthentic.com/lionel-messi-jersey/ .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Navys ground attack was relentless, and its defense definitely got the job done when it mattered.And now Navy has something it has never had before -- a division championship.Will Worth rushed for 159 yards and four touchdowns and Shawn White added 150 yards and three scores as Navy walloped East Carolina 66-31 on Saturday.The win gave the Midshipmen (8-2, 6-1 AAC) the American Athletic Conferences West Division title and propelled them into the conference championship game, while the Pirates (3-8, 1-6) lost for the eighth time in their last nine games. Navy, which will be playing in its first conference title game, leads the all-time series 5-1.This feels great, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. Nobody gave us much respect this year, and our kids took that to heart all season. Our kids have kept their mouths quiet, and Im proud of the way theyve played. Were excited about this win.The result spoiled ECUs senior day celebration for Zay Jones, who passed former teammate and current Atlanta Falcon Justin Hardy for the FBS career receptions record.Jones caught 12 passes for 212 and two touchdowns, giving him 392 career catches. Jones broke Hardys old record of 387 catches -- for 4,541 yards and 35 touchdowns -- set two seasons ago.We fought hard, but this is one of those games, especially when you play against a team like Navy, ECUs first-year head coach Scottie Montgomery said. The two three-and-out possessions, scored touchdowns and the muffed kickoff return make it hard to get into the game when youre trying to steal possessions. Im just so happy for Zay. He has just been wonderful -- he had a seamless transition into this new staff and new situation and new mindset.Worth became the fifth player in Navy history to rush for over 1,000 yards and pass for over 1,000 in the same season. He rushed for over 100 yards in his sixth straight game.This is something were definitely excited about, Worth said. Weve just got to keep this thing rolling and finish it out strong. We just kind of got in a groove and everything was working for us. Just to be able to spread the ball around like thatt, it was all working. Cheap Football Argentina Jerseys. The 100-plus rushing totals from Worth and White marked the third straight game in which a duo of opposing runners broke the century mark against ECU.The O-line played their butts off and made a lot of big holes for me, White said. A-backs and wide receivers were on the outside making great blocks and I was just able to see it and read it. Those holes got really, really wide. Especially for a big guy like me.James Summers rushed for 134 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown, for the Pirates.Navys seniors became the Academys all-time winningest class at 37-13 over its four seasons so far. The 1909 (36-7-5) and 2015 classes (36-16) had jointly held the record.Navy was playing one day after U.S. Marshall Patrick Carothers, a father of five including freshman reserve linebacker Paul Carothers, was shot and killed while serving a warrant in rural southeast Georgia.THE TAKEAWAYNavy: The Mids triple-option offense is a death by a thousand cuts for all but the best opponents, and thats the way they like it. With a double-threat quarterback in Worth and a dominant fullback in White, Navy has scored 42 or more points six times this season.East Carolina: The Pirates put together plenty of offensive fireworks, but were being outrushed for over 100 yards per contest before getting crushed in that part of the game (483-181) on Saturday. Theyll get one more chance to play spoiler, and then run defense must be an off-season project.STAT LINENavys nine rushing touchdowns were the most ever against ECU, surpassing the record of eight set by the Mids in 2010. The Mids finished with 480 rushing yards on 68 carries, while their 113 passing yards were the most they have ever produced against the Pirates.UP NEXTNavy: The Midshipmen will visit SMU on Saturday, and then play in the AAC title game at the home of the higher seed on Dec. 3. The Army-Navy game is Dec. 10 in Baltimore, Maryland.East Carolina: The Pirates will close their season on Saturday at Temple.

CLEMSON, S. Alcides Escobar Jersey .C. -- So far, so good -- and Clemsons young defenders have been better than expected.Thats the word on the Tigers young defenders after one game. They were among the teams major questions marks entering the season, but showed against Auburn they may just turn out as worthy successors to the some of the Tigers recently highly touted defenses.No. 2 Clemson (1-0) held Auburn to 262 yards, including just 87 on the ground with new faces like Clelin Ferrell, Dexter Lawrence and Kendall Joseph in the lineup.As a group, we were definitely nervous, said Ferrell, who made three tackles in his starting debut at defensive end. Hey, weve been working for this moment and now its finally here. So it was like, its time to put on a show.Clemson will try and keep the show going Saturday at home against Troy (1-0).Lawrence, the countrys No. 2 high school prospect last year from Wake Forest, North Carolina, had a sack among his seven tackles in his first college game. Middle linebacker Joseph, who took over for last years leading tackler B.J. Goodson, led Clemson with 10 stops, including three behind the line of scrimmage, at Auburn.It was not supposed to come together so quickly for Clemson. The defense figured to be a work in progress with eight starters (five of them drafted by the NFL after leaving school early) to replace from last years run to the national championship game.Then again, with an offense led by Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Deshaun Watson and featuring an assortment of talented skill players, there was a sense that Clemson didnt need much defense anyway.Against Auburn, it was the new-look, fresh-faced defense that saved the Tigers. Another new starter, safety Jadar Johnson, knocked down two Hail Mary tries into the end zone to preserve the win.Were really just doing our job, holding down our side of the ball, Joseph said. Supporting our offense and getting a win.Lawrence, at 6-foot-5, 340 pounds, is the biggest new piece of the puzzle and picked up Clemsons first sack of the season soon after getting in.I knew I was a big strong guy and I could move, he said. I felt like I could make an impact for the team.Ferrell said they all understand the shoes theyve got to fill.Three of Clemsons last four starting defensive ends in Vic Beasley, Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd are in the NFL. The Tigers were No. 1 in the country in 2014 in fewest yards allowed and were 10th overall in last years run to the national championship game. Lawson and Dodd were 1-2 nationally in tackles for loss.Coming into the season, even before camp started, we had a really big chip on our shoulders, Ferrell said. We know, yeah we lost a lot of guys. But its college football so its next man up.Brent Venables , Clemson defensive coordinator, acknowledged he was hard on the group in camp, prepping them as fast as he could to speed development. And he was happy with the results in game one.Im just really pleased with the effort and the overall execution, Venables said. For a lot of guys, that was their first start. They really played disciplined and thats just not normal.Ferrell is a rangy, 6-5, 255-pounder in the mold past Clemson standouts at the position like the late Gaines Adams and Dodd. He redshirted last season, saying it was difficult at times to be on the sidelines during one of Clemsons most successful seasons.Ferrell said the showing at Auburn is a strong, early statement that there will be no defensive drop off at Clemson.We want to be known as those guys who are not afraid of our chances and make the best of our opportunity, Ferrell said. We want to be known as a great defense this upcoming year.---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org . Alex Gordon Jersey . Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51.

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have reinstated Kike Hernandez from the 15-day disabled list and started him in center field against the Arizona Diamondbacks.Hernandez hit .189 with five homers and 12 RBI in 65 games before he was placed on the disabled list on June 28 with left ribcage inflammation. He was 3 for 24 (.125) during six games in a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment.Hernandez, who had started at five positions for Los Angeles already in 22016, made his first start in center field on Sunday.

Mike Tirico no longer is behind the microphone doing NFL play by play. France World Cup Jerseys . That hasnt diminished his passion for the sport.Indeed, while many observers were belittling the 6-6 tie between Seattle and Arizona last Sunday night, Tirico, a host of NBCs telecast after making the move from ESPN this summer, was enthralled.I was in the stadium and had to find a place to sit somewhere near the (production) trailer or in the booth. I didnt want to leave the booth, I just sat and watched up there, he says. I thought it was a compelling game.If you are not nuanced in current football, maybe you didnt appreciate the efforts of the defensive ends who ruined the game for Seattle. And every level on defense that ruined everything Arizona wanted to do.Hey, the Browns, the poorest team in the league, score touchdowns. Arizona went nine quarters without giving up a TD. It was two really good defenses, although I dont think the offenses were particularly good. To the naked eye, I found myself watching the defensive ends and linebackers on every snap.Tirico has become more nuanced in the sport thanks to working side by side with Jon Gruden on Monday night telecasts. Hes now getting a similar education from Cris Collinsworth.Jon helped teach me football and I learned so many things about the game and how to watch the game, and we were able to share it with viewers, Tirico says. At end of the day if you as a viewer want to expand your knowledge base, I think we can make a connection. It was one of the fun parts of that experience and I feel some of the same with Cris. They just want to teach people about football. So were learning from them and letting the American public get the knowledge.One of Americas most versatile broadcasters, Tirico headed to NBC in great part because of the networks sports portfolio, particularly the Olympics, which he worked in Rio. He also will get the chance to do golf again, and next weekend he hosts the Breeders Cup races at Santa Anita.Should Tirico be asked to play a role in NBCs hockey or soccer or auto racing coverage, hes ready, calling it a chance to hit the reset button on my career.---HELPING THE KIDS: Jon Gruden is taking the Sports Matter initiative to the kids.The Super Bowl-winning coach and current Monday Night Football analyst is combining with DICKS Sporting Goods and the NFL to support youth and high school sports. They are providing football teams in the cities of Monday games with resources and sports equipment to address barriers to access, and enable more youth to participate.Gruden hosts chalk talk events with youth and high school football players and coaches to provide mentorship and discuss the value of sports participation.Football is a great game and a great teacher, Gruden says. Kids learn lessons on the field -- work ethic, teamwork, sportsmanship and mental toughness -- that will help them off the field for the rest of their lives.But like all youth sports programs, theres not enough funding to go around. ... We invite you to join us and do what you can in your own community to support youth sports and create more opportunities for kids.ESPN has donated $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org and will make additional donations to youth sports teams over the course of the 2016 season. The NFL Foundation, together with USA Football, the sports national governing body, has matched ESPNs $100,000 donation. USA Football will also host Heads Up Football clinics for participating teams in select markets.Through the Sports Matter campaign, DICKS Sporting Goods and its Foundation have made a $50 million multi-year commitment to support youth athletic programs, including donations to community sports leagues.---GOING THE DISTANCE: The Eagles are the only team in the NFL to return a kickoff for a touchdown this season and theyve done it in consecutive games for the first time in franchise history.Josh Huff had a 98-yard TD return in a 21-10 win over Minnesota last week. Wendell Smallwood had an 86-yard TD runback in a 27-20 loss at Washington a week earlier.Theyre really beginning to click, and great blocks, coach Doug Pederson said. (Special teams coordinator) Dave Fipp really has those guys ready every single week. You need those things. You need special teams scores. You need defensive scores. All that helps you, especially late down the stretch. It was just great to see it two weeks in a row.Philadelphia is at Dallas in an NFC East showdown Sunday night.---TAKING BLAME: At least one website blamed Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell for getting burned last week on a 67-yard touchdown pass to the Buffalo Bills Marquise Goodwin. Soon after the game, safety Michael Thomas took to Twitter to take the blame.I cant let my boy B Max take that bullet, Thomas tweeted. That bomb was on me.Thomas later said he was trying to disguise the coverage and wound up out of position. He said he fessed up on social media mindful of his defensive coordinator, Vance Joseph.He wants to create a culture about truth, Thomas said. Every man has to be accountable for his actions. He made the perfect call right there, and I let disguise jeopardize my responsibility. It was important to me because as a leader on this team, I want to make sure every player, and especially the DBs, know Ive got their back and Ill never let me hang out to dry.---GETTING THE TIMING DOWN: Kirk Cousins has never played in England, but two offseason visits made him adjust his weekly routine going into the Washington Redskins game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley Stadium.Coach Jay Gruden opted to practice at home and fly the team over on Thursday, but his starting quarterback got a jump start on adjusting to the time difference. Cousins went to bed Tuesday night at 7:15 p.m. and woke up Wednesday morning at 5:15 a.m. with the goal of being ready for a 9:30 a.m. EDT start Sunday.Knowing his own experience from his travels, Cousins talked to sleep professionals to get advice on what to do.When I went over there this offseason, I had a hard time adjusting, Cousins said. I was only there for about three days and it was tough. I was sleeping in until noon or 1 oclock just because of how tired I was, so I want to make sure that doesnt happen.---AP Pro Football Writers Barry Wilner and Rob Maaddi, and Sports Writers Steven Wine and Stephen Whyno contributed.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Blaise Matuidi Jersey .

The BCB has paid the players of Dhaka Premier League clubs Kalabagan Cricket Academy (KCA) and Cricket Coaching School (CCS) their dues on Wednesday, a week after the deadline it had issued for payments to be made had passed. Players from Victoria Sporting Club and Brothers Union, however, remained unpaid and were in the dark leading into the Eid holidays.The board paid the KCA players 30% and the CCS players 52% of their total payment, completing the 60% they were supposed to be paid by June 9, when the leagues first phase ended. The BCB had instructed the clubs to pay the players 30% of their full payment before the start of the league, the next 30% at the end of the first phase, and the remaining 40% six weeks after the end of the Super League on June 22.Players and officials from Abahani Limited, Gazi Group Cricketers, Kalabagan Krira Chakra, Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, Legends of Rupganj, Prime Bank Cricket Club and Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club confirmed they had received 60% of their payment, and were awaiting the rest in the next five weeks. Some of the Mohammedan Sporting Club players were waiting for the second installment but most of the players had been paid the amount due.CCS captain Rajin Saleh said he received a check from an officer of CCDM, the BCB standing committee that runs the capitals leagues. He said he received 52% of his total payment from the board, in addition to the 8% he had received from CCS during the league.The BCB has paid the CCS players today, Rajin said. We are quite relieved because now we have at least the first 60% of the payment. We will tell the club that if they pay us another 10%, we will let go of the remaining money.KCA captain Mahmudul Hasan also confirmed that many of his team-mates had received cheques from the board. BCB director Jalal Yunus said the BCB considered paying players from these twwo clubs first because of their plight during the league. Cheap Lucas Hernandez Jersey. He also said that KCA and CCS would have to reimburse the BCB the full amount it paid on behalf of their clubs.We have paid players from these two clubs as they have suffered the most during the league, Yunus told ESPNcricinfo. We have informed both clubs that they have to reimburse the BCB the exact payment. Otherwise we will have to take action against them.However, the BCB and the players from Victoria and Brothers Union remained unaware about their payment. ESPNcricinfo learned that the clubs had told the board that they would make the payment themselves, but as of June 29 the players had not been given the remaining money.The payment issue with Victoria and Brothers is unlikely to be resolved before Eid. The clubs told the BCB that they would pay the players but so far the players havent been paid, a BCB official said. I think the board will wait until after Eid before paying the players.Brothers Union batsman Shahriar Nafees said they were owed 30% by the club. The Brothers Union club authorities have assured us that they are going to pay us as soon as they have funds, he said. The BCB too have told us that they will do all they can to get the clubs to pay us. We also prefer that the clubs pay us. It has become quite difficult for many of the players, because Eid is coming up.The situation is most difficult for the Victoria players. On June 14, they wanted to meet the BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury but were stopped by their club president Nisar Uddin Ahmed Kazals promise that they would be paid up to 60% by the next day. The payment was not made and it prompted the BCB president Nazmul Hassan to give the clubs the 72-hour deadline on June 19.
