Stepanek gave the Czech Republic its second straight Davis Cup title Sunday, sweeping past Dusan Lajovic in straight sets in the fifth and decisive match to secure a 3-2 win over Serbia in the final. That made Stepanek the first player in the history of the tournament to decide two consecutive finals in the fifth match, having done the same against Spains Nicolas Almagro last year. "This is an amazing moment," said Stepanek, who beat the 117th-ranked Lajovic 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 after Novak Djokovic had levelled the series for Serbia at 2-2 earlier Sunday. The Czech veteran converted his first match point with a smash to send about a thousand visiting Czech fans at Belgrade Arena into wild celebrations as they blew trumpets and beat their drums. Stepanek spread his hands on the court as Tomas Berdych and other Czech teammates jumped on him. "Its difficult to find right words for emotions I am going through now," Stepanek said. "It was a completely different experience than last year. I was very focused, concentrated, I knew what to do on court. We made history for our country today." Last years victory for the first for the Czechs as an independent nation. Serbia won its only crown in 2010, beating France in Belgrade. Lajovic, who has a 5-12 record on the ATP tour and had never played in the Davis Cup before this weekend, replaced Janko Tipsarevic, who missed the final with a heel injury. He also lost his first singles against Berdych on Friday -- his first career best-of-five-sets match -- and found himself thrust into by far the biggest match of his life against Stepanek. The 23-year-old Serb started well, however, breaking Stepanek in the opening game of the match. But the 34-year-old Czech responded swiftly with two consecutive breaks to take a 5-2 lead. Stepanek controlled the match ffrom then on, and broke Lajovic for 3-1 in the final set, and then added another before serving out the match. Authentic Detlef Schrempf Jersey. "I was fighting to my last breath, but obviously this wasnt enough," Lajovic said. "Of course, I am very disappointed. Right now I need to cool off my head and think what to do next." Serbia captain Bogdan Obradovic said his teams chances of winning the title were crippled by Tipsarevics injury and a 12-month doping ban against Viktor Troicki, who helped Serbia win its only title. "We couldnt find the real replacement for the two, it was like playing tennis without one leg," Bogdanovic said. "Dusan is the young gun in our team. Hopefully he is going to use the energy from the team and some experiences from those two matches for his career, even if it wasnt a success." The Czechs got the crucial point in Saturdays doubles to go up 2-1. The second-ranked Djokovic then kept alive Serbias hopes by beating Berdych 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-2 earlier Sunday to improve his career record against the Czech to 15-2. "We both entered this match with a lot of tension," Djokovic said. "I managed to break his resistance in the second set." Berdych was leading 5-4 in the second-set tiebreaker when he sent wide an easy backhand volley at the net. Then he lost a point on his serve, and Djokovic took his first chance to serve out the set. Djokovic, who improved his winning streak to 24 matches since losing the U.S. Open final against Rafael Nadal in September, converted his first match point with an ace, bringing cheers from the 17,000-strong boisterous Serbian crowd at the arena. "Its really hard to find right and correct words to explain at what level hes playing and how strong Novak is," Berdych said. "He is now the best player when hes playing indoors, and thats what he proved today." Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies JerseysCheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
With just two teams left vying for the Stanley Cup, one question remains to be answered; will the experienced Los Angeles Kings win their second championship in three years, or will the underdog New York Rangers end their 20-year Stanley Cup drought? The Kings hold the advantage in experience between the two teams, returning to the Final after winning it all in 2012. Pierre Pilote Jersey . Conversely, the Rangers find themselves in the Cup final for the first time since the team last won the Stanley Cup in 1994, when Mark Messier captained the team. The Rangers understand the Kings enter this series as the favourite, but plan to approach this series the same way the team approached their previous three. "Throughout these playoffs, and its not going to change now, weve been the underdog," Rangers coach Alan Vigneault said on Monday. "But what weve done is focus on how we play and what we need to do on the ice." The Rangers enter the series as the slightly more rested team after defeating the Montreal Canadiens in six games after taking their previous two series to Game 7. The Kings, meanwhile, enter the Final after becoming the first team in NHL history to win three straight Game 7s on the road. For the first time in these playoffs, the Kings go into a series with home-ice advantage. One matchup that could be a determining factor has Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist going up against the explosive offence of the Kings. The Rangers have used strong goaltending from Lundqvist throughout the playoffs to reach the Stanley Cup Final. The 32-year-old posted a 2.03 goals against average and a .928 save percentage through the first three playoff rounds. The Kings offence has benefited from a wealth of players scoring points in order to return to the Final. Six Kings have more points in these playoffs than the Rangers leading scorer, Martin St. Louis. Anze Kopitar leads the playoff in scoring with 24 points, and assists with 19. Linemate Marion Gaborik enters the series having scored more goals (12) than anyone else in the first three rounds. Teammate Jeff Carter is second with nine, while Justin Williams and Tyler Toffoli each have seven goals. For the Rangers, St. Louis has six goals and seven assists in the playoffs. St. Louis has been the emotional leader of the Rangers as the team has rallied around the veteran since the sudden passing of his mother during their second round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Rangers will try to help Lundqvist by finding ways to score on Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, who has posted a 2.86 GAA and a .906 save percentage in 21 playoff games leading to the Final. Quick, however, has experience playing in the Cup final and stopped 125 of the 132 shots he faced against the New Jersey Devils in 2012 en route to winning the Conn Smythe Trophy. Overall, the Kings and Rangers used different strategies to reach the Final. The Kings outscored their opponents 73-60 in the first three rounds, while the Rangers outscored their opponents 54-45. Will the Kings cruise on the strength of their offence and goaltending to win their second Stanley Cup in three years? Or will Lundqvist continue his playoff dominance and lead the Rangers to their first Stanley Cup victory in 20 years? As always, its Your! Call. Nicolas Beaudin Jersey .

The team arrived in Buenos Aires on a plane painted with images of the players and a large sign reading: "Thank you Argentina." A river of emotional fans wearing the white and sky-blue striped jerseys of the national team, among them a group of Argentine gauchos on horses, flooded the road leading from the airport to the football association complex. "You showed that through courage, passion and bringing everything you have and more to the field you can triumph," President Cristina Fernandez said after greeting all members of the team at the complex with a hug and a pat on the back. "Youve given us values that Argentines, surrounded by so much triumphalism, thought were lost. Not only does the one in first place win; you also win when you show quality and manage to unite with others to go forward," Fernandez said. "Thats why I wanted to greet you today and thank you on behalf of 40 million proud Argentines." The two-time world champion entered the title match as the clear underdog after Germanys 7-1 thrashing of host Brazil. But despite complaints about lacklustre play earlier in the tournament, the team led by captain Lionel Messi showed grit throughout the 1-0 overtime loss to Germany, creating several opportunities to score in the first 90 minutes. "Im thankful to everyone. I would have liked to bring you back the Cup and to be able to enjoy it. We tried, we gave it our all but we couldnt achieve it," said Messi, who won the trophy for the tournaments best player. "Despite that, I think we gave a great joy to the country by reachhing this final and facing our rivals without giving anything away. Nathan Noel Jersey. quot; Argentina last played in a World Cup final in 1990, when it lost to West Germany. Four years earlier, it became world champion for the second time, led by captain Diego Maradona, also in a final against the Germans. After Sundays final, thousands of saddened but proud Argentines gathered peacefully at the iconic Obelisk in downtown Buenos Aires to applaud their teams best World Cup performance in 24 years. Cars honked staccato rhythms, firecrackers were tossed into the air and fans of all ages jumped in place shouting, "Argentina! Argentina! Argentina!" "We have nothing to regret, we played first rate," said 53-year-old Horacio Laseiras, carrying his 6-year-old daughter on his shoulders. Violence broke out later Sunday night, forcing riot police to use tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse vandals who threw rocks, destroyed store fronts, tore down street lights and even broke into a theatre.

The Buenos Aires emergency medical service reported on Monday that 70 people were treated for injuries, including 15 police officers. The shot at the title united Argentines otherwise exasperated by one of the worlds highest inflation rates, an encroaching debt crisis and a corruption scandal that has penetrated deep into the presidents inner circle. Fernandez, whose approval rating has plunged in recent months, kept a low profile during the tournament. She declined an invitation to attend the final, preferring instead to rest ahead of a summit Tuesday, also in Brazil, with leaders from Brazil, Russia, India and China. Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
PHILADELPHIA - When Mark Sanchez left USC for the NFL, Pete Carroll criticized his quarterbacks decision. Air Jordan 1 Shoes From China .Five years later, there are no hard feelings. Sanchez and Carroll will hug it out before the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks meet Sunday in a matchup with strong playoff implications.We just disagreed and it became something that seemed bigger than it really was, Sanchez said. I love Coach Carroll. I always have and I always will. I think hes one of the best, not just coaches, but people Ive been around.Hes more than just a coach, hes a teacher and I took that as a form of respect as him wanting me back on his team and that means the world to me because I had so much fun playing for him.Sanchez was drafted No. 5 overall by the New York Jets in 2009 and led them to consecutive AFC championship games his first two seasons before he was booted out of the Big Apple after things went downhill.He has revived his career in Philadelphia after replacing the injured Nick Foles and is coming off an outstanding performance in helping the Eagles (9-3) rout the Cowboys in Dallas on Thanksgiving.Carroll, who led the Seahawks (8-4) to a Super Bowl victory last year, is proud of Sanchezs success.We just had a difference of opinion at the time, Carroll said. I love Mark and hes always been a great kid and Ill always be close to him, follow him, and cheer for him.The Seahawks also are coming off an impressive road win at San Francisco on Thanksgiving. The teams could end up playing again in Philadelphia in the first round of the playoffs.Some things to watch in the teams first meeting since 2011:TESTING SHERMAN: The Eagles say theyre not afraid to throw Richard Shermans way. Sherman, a two-time All-Pro cornerback, had two interceptions against Colin Kaepernick last week.Were going to run our offence, offensive co-ordinator Pat Shurmur said. We certainly have a healthy respect for the fact that hes one of the finest corners in the league, but I do think weve got some good receivers that can go out and match up. That secondary, that whole secondary, is outstanding.Sherman will mostly line up against Jeremy Maclin, who already has his first 1,000-yard season.Hes explosive, Sherman said. He runs good routes. He plays hard. He has speed. He has deceptive speed some will call it. You always need to be aware of him down the field.TACKLING MARSHAWN: Marshawn Lynch leads the league with 21 rushing TDs in December since 2009. He has 253 yards rushing in two games against the Eagles and needs 44 yards and one TD to reach 1,000 yards and 10 TDs for the fourth consecutive season. The Eagles held DeMarco Murray to his fewest yards this season, 73, last week. Lynch presents a different challenge.Nobody runs the ball harder, defensive co-ordinator Billy Davis said. He comes downhill every play. He runs angry. Hes a talented back, and he looks for contact. Hes going to get his yardage. He gets the hard yards.SHADYS BACK: LeSean McCoy ran for 159 yards in Philadelphias 33-10 win at Dallas and became the first Eagles player with four 1,000 yard seasons. After a slow start, hes running more like the guy who was an All-Pro last year when he set a single-season franchise rushing record. McCoy has a tough test against the Seahawks, who have the fifth-best rushing defence.WINNING THEIR WAY: Carroll and Chip Kelly have found success in the NFL after leaving their Pac-12 schools, but the two coaches have contrasting styles. Kelly runs an up-tempo, fast-paced offence while Carrolls teams win because of a dominant defence and grind-it-out offence.I think the world of Chip, Carroll said. Hes done an extraordinary job. Hes affected the whole landscape of college football and now hes affecting the NFL ranks in great fashion.Kelly visited the Seahawks to watch them practice on a day off while he was at Oregon and left with a strong impression of Carroll.I was impressed with how organized his practices were, what attention to detail he has and the small minute things that people think may be minute but they can be the difference in winning and losing a game, how he covered situational football all the time, how he puts his teams in competitive situations, Kelly said.WILSONS SCRAMBLING: Russell Wilson has 679 yards rushing and leads the league with an average of 7.5 yards per carry. Hes running the ball far more this year than he did his first two seasons, but insists his first priority is to hand the ball off on those zone-read plays.Im not trying to bang into a whole bunch of guys. Im trying to get down and make the smart play, Wilson said. Im trying to hand the ball 100 per cent of the time to Marshawn Lynch. If for some reason theres nobody out there, I take it. I can run, but Im not a runner.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.organd AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi Cheap Air Jordan 1 China .Y. -- A month ago, Syracuse was unbeaten, ranked No. Cheap Air Jordan 1 Retro . Vonn had another scary moment at Saturdays World Cup downhill in Val dIsere, ending up clutching her knee in pain after losing her balance and missing a gate. But she gave a reassuring answer shortly afterward, saying no new damage had been done to the surgically repaired knee, and that her plans for the Sochi Olympics were still intact.Questions have surrounded Edmonton Oilers winger Nail Yakupov throughout his sophomore season and the young Russian can expect more as the Oilers host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Yakupov was selected first overall at the 2012 NHL Draft, with the Jackets selecting defenceman Ryan Murray second overall. While Yakupov enjoyed an excellent rookie season in 2012-13, scoring 17 goals and totaling 31 points in 48 games, Murray spent an extra year in junior. His was a disappointing season that saw him limited to just 23 games with the Everett Silvertips due to a shoulder injury. That injury would also keep him out of Canadas 2013 World Junior plans. This season, however, both broke camp with their respective NHL clubs, and their respective stocks have trended in opposite directions. Murray, though hes only produced four points through 20 games, has averaged nearly 19 minutes per game on the Blue Jackets blue line, posting a plus-3 rating on a sub-.500 Columbus team. Yakupov, meanwhile, has limped out of the gate. He has scored just three goals and three assists with the lowly Oilers, posting an NHL-worst minus-14 rating. The struggling sniper was even a healthy scratch for back-to-back games in mid-October. Columbus Dispatch reporter Aaron Portzline fanned the flames on the debate early Tuesday morning. "Way, way too early to call who was right. But maybe Edmonton picks differently if they had 2012 draft to do over again," Portzline tweeted in the early morning hours. "Remember, too, Howson was so enamored oof Murray that he turned down a "take all of our picks" offer from NY Islanders to stay at No. Discount Air Jordan 1. 2," Portzline added. So, by Portzlines comments, the Blue Jackets were thrilled to have wound up with Murray at the second pick. But does that mean that they would have grabbed him over Yakupov if given the chance? Portzline thinks so. "If memory serves, Howson and [Columbus] would have drafted Galchenyuk @ No. 2 if Murray was taken No. 1 by Edmonton," Portzline added. Galchenyuk - now in his second year in Montreal – had a rookie season to rival Yakupovs, scoring nine goals and 27 points on the Northeast Division Champion Canadiens. Hes picked up where he left off in his second season, putting up 15 points through 21 games so far in 2013-14. That total is good enough for second on the Habs. So, did the Oilers gaffe in going for Yakupov above the likes of Galchenyuk and Murray? Its also possible that the Oilers could have dangled that first overall draft pick to either the Canadiens or Blue Jackets to get extra picks or prospects while still being able to grab one of the three top players, possibly even still getting Yakupov. Their decision to go after Darnell Nurse seventh overall in the 2013 Draft certainly suggests that they could have used a blue line boost. But - as Portzline said on Twitter – it is also very, very early to be making these kinds of judgments. If you had a chance for a do-over, what would you have done with the No. 1 pick?? As always, its Your!

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch expects to see his driving under the influence trial in California come to an end on Friday when he pleads guilty a lesser charge of reckless driving. Cheap Jordan 8 Wholesale . Lynchs attorney, Ivan Golde, told The Associated Press on Thursday of the plea deal that was reached with the Alameda County District Attorney Office. The plea will be formally entered in court in Oakland, Calif., on Friday. ESPN first reported the plea agreement. Lynch was arrested in July 2012 on investigation of driving under the influence after he was pulled over on a freeway in Oakland. Golde says he believes that Lynch had a strong enough case to win at trial, but said the Seattle running back did not want a public trial considering his high profile with the Seahawks coming off a Super Bowl victory. Golde said Lynch will plead guilty to a "wet reckless." Lynch will have to take six driving safety classes and pay a $1,080 fine. Jordan 8 Wholesale .Y. - Matt Harvey wants to make sure hes on the mound in late October — if the New York Mets get there for the first time since 2006. Cheap Jordan 8 Shoes Free Shipping . LOUIS -- The St. OAKLAND, Calif. -- After another weird week in a season full of drama, the Golden State Warriors figured winning was the best way to quiet the growing chatter surrounding coach Mark Jacksons job. Klay Thompson scored 33 points, Stephen Curry played through an illness to finish with 31 points and 16 assists, and the Warriors rolled past the Utah Jazz 130-102 Sunday night to keep pace in the Western Conference playoff race. "If you pay attention to the chatter, then you lose sight of whats taking place," Jackson said. "If it was great noise around here, our chatter is irrelevant. The numbers speak for themselves." The Warriors (48-29) eclipsed last seasons win total and moved 19 games over .500 for the first time in 20 years. Golden State remains 1 1/2 games behind fifth-place Portland and 1 1/2 games ahead of seventh-place Dallas in the crammed conference standings. Even in the midst of the franchises best season in two decades, not everything has gone smoothly for the Bay Areas beloved basketball team -- or its coach. The Warriors have parted ways with two of Jacksons assistant coaches in less than two weeks. They fired Darren Erman on Saturday for what the team called "a violation of company policy," and Jackson reassigned Brian Scalabrine to the teams NBA Development League affiliate in Santa Cruz on March 25 because of what Jackson called a "difference in philosophies." For at least one night, though, Jacksons players put the focus back on the court. The Warriors scored more points than they had all season, made a season-high 17 3-pointers on 33 attempts and outshot Utah 57.8 per cent to 45.3 per cent from the floor. Center Andrew Bogut, who had missed the past four games with a bruise in his pelvis and groin area, also returned to finish with six points and 11 rebounds in 23 minutes. "There have been some things that happened off the floor that happen in all professional organizations," Bogut said. "Its obviously none of your business, none of the fans business, no ones business outside of our organization. Its a team thing that stays in house. Were still winning games." Playing against the Western Conferences worst team certainly helped. Trey Burke had 24 points and 15 assists, and Alec&nbssp;Burks added 24 points and five assists in the latest lopsided loss for the Jazz (24-53), who are just trying to finish out the season on a positive note. Wholesale Jordan 8. Instead, they let two of the leagues streakiest shooters get loose. "Curry and Thompson got hot early. They got open looks," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "Curry came out with the intent of getting them up early and he made shots." The shooting display came after Jackson spent about 15 minutes before the game defending the job he has done, saying theres "no friction at all" between him and management. He also said "Im absolutely convinced my future is just fine." The scintillating shooting display by Jacksons guard duo, which he has repeatedly proclaimed the "greatest shooting backcourt in NBA history," quickly put the Warriors on firm footing. Curry, who said he has been battling a cold, made his first four 3-pointers and finished with 16 points and six assists in the first quarter to give Golden State a 35-22 lead. After the Warriors went ahead 40-22 early in the second quarter, Utah took advantage of several misses and mistakes by Golden States second unit to score 13 straight points. Curry and Co. returned and restored order, ending the half with a 66-52 lead. Curry had 20 points and 11 assists at the break; Utah totalled 10 as a team during that span. "Its tough, man," Burks said. "I guarded both of them. Theyre great players and they can really shoot." Thompson and Curry continued their scoring surge in the third quarter to lift the Warriors ahead 101-73 through three quarters. Both sat out the fourth. Thompson finished 11 of 20 from the floor, including 7 of 10 from 3-point range. Curry shot 12 of 18 from the field and 5 of 10 from beyond the arc.

NEW YORK -- The heart of the order was in the middle of everything for Texas on Wednesday night. Stitched UCLA Jerseys . Nelson Cruz homered and the Rangers got consecutive two-run doubles from Adrian Beltre and A.J. Pierzynski in an 8-5 victory over Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees. The 3-4-5-6 hitters in Texas lineup combined to go 7 for 20 with three doubles and seven RBIs. "What was nice was to see the middle of my order come up big," manager Ron Washington said. "We need that. Without those guys doing what they did and what they are capable of doing, it would be a long year. They pulled it out for us tonight." Rangers rookie Justin Grimm pitched just well enough to beat Pettitte, and the AL West leaders won for the seventh time in nine games following a six-game slide -- their longest of the season. Texas improved to 6-12 against the Yankees since the start of 2011, both perennial playoff teams this decade. Lyle Overbay and Ichiro Suzuki homered for New York on a hectic day at Yankee Stadium, where baseballs most famous franchise announced that first baseman Mark Teixeira needs season-ending surgery on his right wrist. Manager Joe Girardi and GM Brian Cashman also discussed the latest Alex Rodriguez drama, and the team said all parties involved are on the same page about posting injury updates on Twitter after A-Rod called Cashman for a clarification chat. Grimm (7-5) allowed three runs in five-plus innings for his second straight win over a 2012 division champion. "I guess a wins a win," he said. "Id just love to be able to go deeper in the game, especially when Im cruising like that, going at guys." Pettitte (5-6) settled in after a rocky third but dropped his third start in a row since earning his 250th win. He has struggled since coming off the disabled list June 3 and is 2-6 in his last 10 starts since winning his first three of the season. "My body is feeling good, my velocity is good, my command is good," Pettitte said. "It will turn. Ive been through this before and its worked out all right. I just want my body to keep feeling good." Cruz, with little success against the Yankees in recent years, hit a two-run shot off struggling reliever Joba Chamberlain in the seventh to extend Texas lead to 6-3 and tie a club record with his fifth consecutive 20-homer season. Suzukis two-run drive in the bottom half was a no-doubter into the second deck in right, the first homer all season off left-handed reliever Robbie Ross. Not known for his power, Suzuki also hit a game-ending homer in the series opener Tuesday. Tanner Scheppers worked a perfect eighth, one night after serving up Suzukis clutch home run. Joe Nathan got three quick outs for his 26th save in 27 tries. "Last night was a little tough to swallow," Beltre said. "But today we came back with a better attitude." After an error by centre fielder Brett Gardner, Texas scored two unearned runs in the ninth off Shawn Kelley on Lance Berkmans RBI single and Mitch Morelands sacrifice fly. Beltre finished with three hits. Overbay, the replacement for Teixeira, hit his ninth homer to the back of the Yankees bullpen in right-centre to give Pettitte a 1-0 lead in the second. But the left-hander, making his second start since turning 41, gave it right back. A bunt single by Leonys Martin and a throwing error by third baseman Jayson Nix on Elvis Andrus sacrifice helped Texas load the bases in the third. Beltre doubled off the left-field wall on an 0-2 delivery and Pierzynski hit the next pitch to right-centre, making it 4-1. "Obviously, when Nellie and Adrian are swinging the bat well it makes my job hitting behind them a lot easier," Pierzynski said. "But I think this team has prided itself on one through nine giving you tough at-bats and I think that weve kind of started to get healthy and guys have started to do that." After a visit from pitching coach Larry Rothschild, Pettitte retired his next 10 batters and did not permit another run. He yielded three earned runs and six hits in six innings, striking out six. Robinson Cano and Travis Hafner hit consecutive RBI singles off Ross in the sixth, cutting it to 4-3. The Yankees then loaded the bases but Nix grounded into an inning-ending double play. "We closed their lead a couple of times. Theyve been really good. Tonight we gave them extra opportunities and they really cost us," Girardi said. NOTES: Coming into the game, Ross had held opposing hitters to 3 for 41 (.073) with runners in scoring position -- the best mark in the majors with a minimum of 20 at-bats. ... Rangers RHP Joakim Soria, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, pitched a perfect inning in the rookie level Arizona League. His next scheduled outing is Friday for Triple-A Round Rock. ... Yankees INF Eduardo Nunez (strained left oblique) was set to begin a rehab assignment with Class A Tampa. ... The Yankees fell to 24-1 when scoring at least five runs. ...

Murray took a feed from R.J. Umberger and beat backup goalie Jeff Zatkott. Murray was the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NHL draft but missed the season with a shoulder injury.

CHARLOTTE, N. Billige Air Max .C. -- Coach Ron Rivera expects to have his starting backfield ready to play Sunday night when the Panthers host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Running back DeAngelo Williams and Pro Bowl fullback Mike Tolbert practiced full on Friday and are expected to start. Williams is listed as questionable on the injury report; Tolbert is probable. Quarterback Cam Newton has been battling rib and ankle injuries but isnt listed on the teams injury report. Thats good news for unbeaten Carolina considering the Steelers (1-1) rank 29th in the league against the run after two games and allowed 157 yards rushing in a 26-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens last week. "The formula that we talked is being able to control the ball, control the clock and take the pressure off our quarterback," Rivera said. "Thats what were hoping for. Its great to have Jonathan Stewart back and Tolbert rolling and DeAngelo hopefully back out there." Third-string running back Fozzy Whittaker is doubtful with a quadriceps injury. While the running backs are getting healthy, Carolinas wide receiver position is a little more unsettled heading into Sunday. Rivera said there is some concern over starting wide receiver Jerricho Cotcherys status. Cotchery, who caught 10 TD passes last season for the Steelers, didnt practice Friday and is listed as questionable along with backup wide receiver Jason Avant. Both are struggling with hamstring injuries. Cotchery said Friday he ran in the pool instead going outside to practice and will be cautious with the injury, even though he desperately wants to play against his former team. "Im preparing for a long year," Cotchery said. "I came here to play to play ball in January and February. If I feel good on Sunday then I will go. But if not Im just looking forward to the long season." Rivera is anxious to get Williams back on the field. The 31-year-old running back sat out last weeks game against Detroit with a hamstring injury and the Panthers struggled moving the ball on the ground. Williams had a strong debut in the season opener, rushing for 72 yards on 14 carries against Tampa Bay. Stewart started in place of Williams last Sunday and ran for 37 yards and a touchdown against a Lions defence that repeatedly put eight and nine men in the box, forcing Newton to beat them with his arm. Tolbert missed practice earlier in the week with a bruised sternum after taking what he called the hardest hit of his NFL career last Sunday from Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley. Fairley came through Carolinas offensive line unblocked on a goal line play and levelled Tolbert, who was left gasping for air. The Panthers are looking for their first 3-0 start since 2003, the year they went to the Super Bowl. Billige Air Max Online .

By the Broncos, of all teams. Yes, the very same AFC champions who tore up the league with a record 606 points, 55 touchdowns coming off Peyton Mannings arm, have been touting how strong their defence has become. Measure it against Seattles unit, which allowed a very miserly 231 points and ranked first against the pass and in overall D, and the Broncos would seem to be whistling a hollow tune. But linebacker Danny Trevathan, a breakout player in his second NFL season, sees plenty of greatness in his defence, too. "Oh yeah. You are supposed to have that attitude," Trevathan said. "On defence youre not supposed to let guys push you over. You are supposed to be the aggressor on defence and you are supposed to have that attitude. I think that is what makes playing defence so passionate to me. "I think this game was meant for tough guys. You cant be soft out here." No one is soft on either of these teams, of course. On the contrary, its only the second time in 20 years that the top seed in each conference got this far. Its also that classic matchup that so excites fans, media and, yes, players. The Seahawks cant wait for the chance to test themselves against Manning, seeking his second ring in an almost-certain Hall of Fame career. "Its going to be a great challenge," middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. "Theyre talented all across the board. They protect Peyton well and they run the ball well. Hes definitely passed the ball well. Its up to us to do our jobs and make sure that we come ready to play." Expect both sides to be very ready. Denver (15-3, No. 2 in the AAP Pro32) is a 2 1-2-point favourite over Seattle (also 15-3, but top-ranked in the AP Pro32). Air Max Norge Nettbutikk. The main reason for that spread: In the points-crazed NFL, fans who bet early dive headfirst into the offence. With their wallets open. Plus, the biggest star in this game, and pretty much any time he is in uniform, is Manning. That draws more support for the Broncos. But not here. Pro Picks sees the Seahawks quick, relentless and heady defence putting more pressure on Manning than he has seen all season. Yes, hes been sacked only 20 times, and he might not go down a whole bunch in the Jersey Meadowlands on Sunday. But he will be forced to throw before he wants to or before his four outstanding receivers -- Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker and tight end Julius Thomas -- shake free from the tight coverage of the NFLs best secondary led by All-Pros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas. Seattle also brings the heat with the deepest rotation of linemen in the league, and some savvy, versatile linebackers. The Seahawks dont take their foot off the gas, either. For the Broncos to prosper, theyll need a huge contribution from Knowshon Moreno and the running game. It could happen, particularly if the Seahawks are overly protective of not letting Manning get on track. But hardly anyone dominates on the ground against Seattle. For those who believe the Seahawks will need to light up the scoreboard to beat the Broncos, we think a couple of touchdowns and a few field goals will do the job. Silent man Marshawn Lynch running the ball in Beast Mode, and some improvisation from quarterback Russell Wilson -- along with the best defence since the 2000 Ravens -- will be enough.Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
LONDON - Frank Lampard retired from Englands national team on Tuesday, two weeks before qualifying starts for the 2016 European Championship. Cheap Texas A&M Jerseys Free Shipping . Since making his England debut in 1999, the 36-year-old Lampard has scored 29 goals in 106 matches, with his last appearance coming at the World Cup in June. "It has been a very tough decision for me to make, which is why I have given it so much thought since the World Cup," Lampard said in a statement. "I have always been exceptionally proud and honoured to represent my country and have to say looking back I have enjoyed every minute of wearing the England shirt." Lampard has just embarked on a new phase of his club career after a trophy-laden, 13-year spell at Chelsea was ended by the club in May. The midfielder joined New York City FC, which sent him back to the Premier League on loan to partner club Manchester City to prepare for the Major League Soccer teams debut in 2015. "Due to my club career now going in a different direction it is of utmost importance for me to consider my family first — also, to concentrate on how I can perform consistently to the best of my abilities over my next few years in club football," Lampard said. Lampards international retirement has followed another member of Englands so-called golden generation, Steven Gerrard. At the World Cup, Lampards international career ended with Englands worst World Cup showing, collecting only one point before going home. Lampards only appearance in Brazil came in a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica when England was already out of contention in the group stage. England coach Roy Hodgson is trying to rebuild the team before Euro 2016 qualifying begins against Switzerland next month, with the squad announced on Thursday. Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is expected to assume the England armband from Gerrard. "I feel very confident that, with Roy Hodgson in charge, the young players that we have coming through and the changes that are being made throughout the development of the youth system in this country, we will have success in the future and a team that this country deserves," Lampard said. "I now look forward to continuing to support the team as a fan and wish them every success for the upcoming campaign towards France 2016." Von Miller College Jersey .C. -- After turning Tobacco Road into "Raleigh Top," Tennessee is headed to the round of 16. Ricky Seals-Jones College Jersey . PAUL, Minn.MINSK, Belarus -- Defending champion Sweden made the first step in its title defence with a 3-0 victory over Denmark at the ice hockey world championship on Saturday. Calgary Flames forward Mikael Backlund scored twice in the opening period when the Swedes displayed fast, well organized play that was tough for Denmark to match. "It was nice to have a few goals right away, keep the pressure off and the nerves away," Backlund said. Another Scandinavian superpower, Finland, began its campaign with an upset 3-2 loss to Latvia and Norway blanked Italy 3-0 while Germany prevailed in a shootout to beat Kazakhstan 2-1. Backlund scored his first for Sweden when defenceman Markus Lauridsen deflected his shot to the net with his skate and struck again by precisely directing Joakim Lindstroms slap shot. Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist added the third on a solo effort after intercepting a pass. "Once we got up two to nothing we stopped taking the puck to the net," Nyquist said. "We tried to make too many passes instead of shooting the puck." Latvia failed to capitalize on its second-period power plays when a total of seven Finns were in the penalty box. Finland used its only power play in that period to go 2-1 up with a goal by Petri Kontiola. Kristaps Sotnieks tied the match for Latvia -- the quarterfinalist in the Sochi Winter Olympics -- in the third before Arturs Kulda netted the winner on a power play. It was the first victorry for Latvia over Finland at the worlds. Stitched Texas A&M Jerseys. . Thomas Oppenheimer scored the decisive goal in the shootout to give Germany the win. Germany outshot its opponent 47-20 but Kazakhstan went ahead 1-0 after a goal from Andrei Gavrilin. The Germans answered through Matthias Plachta at the end of the first period. "I have to look at the positive," German coach Pat Cortina said. "We put the puck to the net and that is extremely important for our team." Niklas Roest opened the scoring in the first period for Norway, Morten Ask made it 2-0 midway through the game and captain Anders Bastiansen rounded off the victory on a breakaway in the third. "I tried to shoot early to surprise the goalie and it went in, so I was really happy," Bastiansen said. "We did a good job. We won and thats the most important thing." Goaltender Lars Haugen made 15 saves for the shutout, but needed help from his posts on two shots by defenceman Daniel Sullivan in the second. "We had a little difficulty in the beginning, adjusting to the speed," Italy coach Tom Pokel said. "However, as the game went on we got better and better. So it was a good game for us." Italy and Kazakhstan are both newcomers to the top division this year. Later Saturday, Canada hopes to rebound from Fridays 3-2 loss to France with a win against Slovakia, while the United States faces Switzerland a day after it routed host Belarus 6-1. Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins JerseysCheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
MINNEAPOLIS -- Joe Mauer hit a two-run double that just missed reaching the seats and Kevin Correia pitched a smooth six innings to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox for the third straight game, 4-3 on Saturday. Cheap Air Jordan From China . Glen Perkins pitched another tenuous ninth inning but got his 19th save in 22 tries after giving up two runs to blow one the night before. Adam Eaton led off with a triple and scored on Gordon Beckhams sacrifice fly. Pinch-hitter Paul Konerko then smacked a single up the middle, but Perkins struck out Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn to end it and punctuated the final swing and miss with a big pump of his left arm. With the Twins trailing 2-1, Mauers drive in the fifth inning soared over left fielder Alejandro De Aza and landed about halfway up the wall. Kendrys Morales hit the next pitch for an RBI single against Andre Rienzo (4-5), who lost his fifth straight start. Correia (4-8) gave up five runs or more in five of his first 12 starts, sliding toward replacement in the rotation, but the 33-year-old right-hander has pitched superbly in three turns since. In 18 innings, Correia has allowed a total of two earned runs and walked only four. He surrendered his share of sharp drives on this picture-perfect first-day-of-summer afternoon, but the defence behind him didnt do him any favours. Centre fielder Sam Fuld tried to dive for a two-out sinking liner by Conor Gillaspie in the first inning, but the ball skipped in front of and past him for a triple and Abreu followed with an RBI single. Then third baseman Eduardo Escobar bungled a routine ground ball by letting it slide between his legs to start the second inning. The White Sox only needed a single, a walk and a two-out hit-by-pitch to produce the unearned run. Correias 3-1 bases-loaded fastball bounced off Beckhams elbow and hit catcher Kurt Suzuki in the throat, but he was all right to stay in the game. Escobar committed a second error on a similar play the next inning, but Correia escaped trouble with a double-play groundball by Dayan Viciedo. The Brazilian-born Rienzo, who debuted for the White Sox last summer, was 4-0 after his first six starts following the rotator cuff injury that knocked Felipe Paulino out of action. Rienzo has struggled badly since, though, by finishing the fifth inning in only two of his last five turns. His ERA during the losing streak is 8.87. The Twins hit three straight two-out singles in the second inning to load the bases, and Fuld walked to force in the first run. Then Rienzo hit Brian Dozier with a pitch to put two runners on for Mauer in the fifth inning, setting the struggling six-time All-Star and three-time batting champion up for just his fourth multi-RBI game this season. Two of those have been in this series. The White Sox have hung around the pack in the American League Central all year, never losing or winning more than four games in a row, but this has been a rough start to an 11-game road trip. They fell a season-high five games under .500 and back into last place. The Twins took a five-game losing streak into this series. Their starters have a 2.41 ERA over the last 11 games. NOTES: Mauer has 18 of his 20 RBIs this season at Target Field. ... Gillaspie went 2 for 4 to raise his average to .340, but he doesnt have enough at-bats to qualify yet for the league batting lead. In his last 30 games, Gillaspie is batting .366. ... Twins RF Oswaldo Arcia is hitless in his last 27 at-bats. ... The White Sox will send John Danks (6-5, 3.97) to the mound for the series finale Sunday, and Phil Hughes (7-3, 3.09 ERA) will pitch for the Twins. Danks has a 5.70 ERA in six road starts this season. Hughes gave up three HRs in his last home start, the only time a team has taken him deep in his last eight turns. ... White Sox manager Robin Ventura successfully challenged a call in the third inning, when Brian Dozier originally led off with a double. Replays showed Beckhams tag grazed Doziers foot before it landed on the base. Wholesale Air Jordan China .

WINNIPEG -- Robert Marve knows that when you give Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans something to cheer about, you feel the love. Authentic Anfernee Simons Jersey . Marve is one of three quarterbacks coach Mike OShea says are in the running to back up starter Drew Willy for the Bombers. He spent a scant few minutes on the field last Thursday at the end of a 24-22 loss to the Toronto Argonauts but didnt waste a second. He rushed for 17 yards and connected with three out of four passes, including one for a touchdown to rookie receiver Donavon Kemp. It game fans a reason to cheer, and they responded in person and on Twitter. "I did get some Bomber love," he said Thursday after practice. "That was nice. The fans are awesome and I appreciate all the support." Marve will get another chance to play Saturday when the Bombers visit the Calgary Stampeders in Calgary, but coach Mike OShea couldnt say how much. "Well see all four," he said. "Now how the times broken down, well see how it all plays out. But the plan right now is, as I said yesterday, to give Drew all the time he needs to feel comfortable and for the offence to get comfortable with him." Willy also didnt sound too concerned Thursday about how much time he will get as the team plays its last pre-season game before their CFL home opener against the Argonauts June 26. He had two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in a backup capacity and at least on Thursday was getting a lot more playing time in practice. OShea insists the role of backup in Winnipeg is still very much up for grabs. In terms of CFL experience, Max Hall would seem to have the inside track. He finished last season as the pivot the Bombers turned too most often as they struggled to find a way to win. But they also brought in Marve and Brian Brohm to audition. At just 25, Marve is the youngest of the three. A high-school star in Florida, his college career was marred by three operations to repair three tears of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Likely as a result, he was undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft but attended the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. He insists his knee feels better after this last operation than it has since it was first injured and he doesnt let the injury in any way dictate how hes going to play. "No, Im a loose cannon. I cant play holding anything back. And as you kind of saw on that one drive Im a pump up guy. I like to run around and make some things happen. "So I felt good in the game. My knee felt fine when I was running so Im ready to go physically." His last operation was about a year ago and he finished his college career at Purdue before having it. Among the cuts the Bombers announced Thursday was their No. 1 draft pick in 2012, offensive lineman Tyson Pencer. Although Pencer, who was taken third overall in that years CFL draft, has spent much of his time with the Bombers on an injured list, OShea said they have seen enough to know he was not going to make the team. They also released import defensive linemen Stafford Gatling and Louis Nzegwu, import offensive lineman Quentin Saulsberry and another draft pick, defensive back Kris Robertson, who they selected in the second round last year. Cheap Blazers Jerseys .

Then he got the best of Peyton Manning.After eight weeks on the bench, the journeyman was ready.Obviously, we were facing one of the best teams in the league, Hill said after the Rams surprised Denver 22-7 on Sunday. Everybody stepped up, for sure.The 34-year-old Hill got a game ball from coach Jeff Fisher after the Rams (4-6) beat an elite team for the third time this season. Hill kept it clean with a turnover-free outing that complemented a defence that had two interceptions and made the stops that counted.Critical mistakes landed Austin Davis a spot on the bench. Hill needed two weeks to recover from a thigh injury that sidelined him in the opener, but after that he needed lots of patience.Its a constant process to stay up, especially as a backup, its tough, Hill said. But its something youve got to do.The Rams had already beaten the past two NFC champs — Seattle and San Francisco. And they had blown big leads at home against the Cowboys and the first time they played the 49ers.This time, they finished the job against the NFLs No. 2 offence, which hadnt scored fewer than 21 points and had scored 30 or more five of the previous six.Its not too bad to beat a guy who can put up 40 points in no time, defensive end Robert Quinn said. Hes a future Hall of Famer.Rookie Tre Mason had 29 carries for 113 yards, the most against the Broncos top-ranked run defence.Kenny Britt had four catches for 128 yards with a 63-yard score and Greg Zuerlein was a career-best 5 for 5 on field goals for the Rams (4-6).Manning was 34 for 54 for 389 yards with two interceptions, but was held to a 42-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, ending a streak of 15 consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes. He refused to lean on injuries that sidelined Julius Thomas, Montee Ball and Sanders.We didnt execute very well and I just think I didnt play very well, Manning said. No excuses. I have to play better and we have to score more points than seven.Demaryius Thomas had seven receptions for 103 yards, his seventh consecutive 100-yard game to match the Cowboys Michael Irvin (1995) for second-longest single-seasonn streak in NFL history. Authentic Gary Trent Jr. Jersey. Calvin Johnson holds the record with eight straight.The Broncos (7-3) failed twice on fourth down deep in St. Louis territory. Manning threw incomplete from the 37 in the first quarter and rookie Aaron Donalds sack helped end a drive in the fourth quarter on fourth-and-4 from the 28.Quinn spun Manning around before Donald took the quarterback down.I got the opportunity to clean him up, Donald said. Youve got to take a big quarterback down when you can.Thomas (ankle) was sidelined in the first with two catches for 3 yards and ruled out in the third, Ball (groin) got limited work before aggravating an injury that kept him out the previous five games. Sanders (concussion) was ruled out after a hit from Rodney McLeod on a deep sideline throw in the third.Hill was 20 for 29 for 220 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in his first start since injuring a thigh in the first half of the opener.The 34-year-old Hill guided a turnover-free offence.I certainly had the butterflies going, Hill said. It was a lot of fun to be back out there.Zuerlein hit three short field goals earlier, then connected from 55 and 53 yards in the fourth quarter. He last kicked five field goals in 2011 for Division II Missouri Western against Missouri Southern.Lots of times, you dont get many opportunities, Zuerlein said. Today, they came in bunches.Notes: LB Alec Ogletree and CB Trumaine Johnson had interceptions for St. Louis. Ogletree has an interception each of the last two games. ...
