Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. Shelby Miller Jersey . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. He was not, perhaps, the swing bowler that many in the Lords crowd had hoped to see, but Chris Woakes continued his breakthrough summer with another performance of skill and maturity.Woakes, with his fourth career-best performance of a Test season that may come to define him, ensured England ended the first day of the series with their noses in front. On a slow, flat wicket, anything less than 350 might well leave Pakistan precariously placed in this match.Not only did Woakes have the quickest average speed of Englands seamers - a familiar statistic since he came back into the side in South Africa - but he conceded the fewest boundaries and offered the most threat. Gaining more life from the surface than any of his colleagues, Woakes also gained more movement and demonstrated the patience required to prosper on a docile surface. Comfortable in the dressing room and growing in confidence by the match, he is now starting to replicate his county form for his country on a consistent basis.Offered another opportunity at this level by injury to Ben Stokes, Woakes has taken his chance admirably. Having twice posted Test-best scores against Sri Lanka, he also recorded his best match analysis in Durham and has followed it with his best innings analysis here. His Test bowling average is now below that of Stokes and he must have given himself an excellent opportunity of retaining his place when Stokes returns.While Woakes has, of late, appeared to be in competition with Stokes, it is James Anderson who he most resembles as a bowler. And, while he is some way short of replicating that armoury of skills, he does offer hope that England have a decent fall back for life after Anderson.If it was his extra pace that accounted for Shan Masood - drawn into an unwise flirt outside off stump - it was his swing that accounted for Asad Shafiq. Shafiq, perhaps the most technically correct of Pakistans batsmen and certainly the one who plays straightest, was unsettled by a delivery that left him sharply and then found himself, unsure whether to play or leave, being drawn into an edge off the next delivery at he tried to withdraw the bat.But Woakes success was a bright spot in a day that, for England, offered as many reasons for concern as celebration. Primarily there must be a real danger that their captain, Alastair Cook, will miss the second Test while two more chances were dropped in the slips and two bowlers, Steven Finn and Moeen Ali, endured the sort of chastening days that will concern the selectors.Englands over-rate slipped way behind the required pace here. There were still 11 overs to bowl when 6pm came and three were lost when play was called-off at 6.30pm. Quite apart from the fact that spectators are being short-changed by Englands slow over-rate - if you paid £90 for a bottle of wine and a waiter took a slug before pouring it, you would be entitled to ask for your money back - Cook is also running the risk of a suspension.The ICCs regulations (Appendix 2, section 4.2 of the ICCs Code of Conduct) state that, for a second offence within 12-months in the same format - England were also penalised after the Ashes Test at The Oval - the captain should be fined 20% of their match fee for each over short and be suspended for the next international match. While the over-rate is only judged after a complete Test - meaning England have time to make amends - there is a real danger that Cook could be suspended for the Old Trafford Test. He has previously been suspended from an ODI in Sri Lanka for the same offence.Cooks problem is, in part, that he can hardly bowl Moeen against Misbah-ul-Haq. So complete is Misbahs maastery against spin in general and Moeen in particular that, after a couple of expensive Moeen overs, England relied upon their four seamers for all but two of the first 68 overs before Cook was obliged to re-introduce Moeen to combat the over-rate issue. Paul Goldschmidt Jersey. .While a first day pitch at Lords in unlikely to flatter many spinners - especially spinners bowling against Misbah - Moeens continuing struggles cannot be ignored. Since the start of 2016, he has played six-and-a-half Tests and taken five wickets at an average of 119. Yes, he has played on some unhelpful surfaces but, by conceding an average of 3.58 runs per over, he has also struggled to provide the holding role required. His place for the next Test must be in jeopardy.The same is true of Finn. Despite a typically whole-hearted effort, trying to extract bounce from a docile wicket with a prolonged spell of short-pitched bowling, Finn lacked the requisite rhythm or control and conceded more than four-an-over. His pitch map was more mountain range than mountain and, despite an average pace lower than either Woakes or Ball, he bowled almost as many deliveries outside leg stump as off. For much of the day, as he struggled with the slope, he looked like a man who had never previously bowled at Lords; an odd state of affairs for a fellow on his home ground.In an ideal world, England would like to bear with him, providing the support and patience required to help him rediscover his form and confidence. But Anderson is expected to be available for Manchester; Stokes, too. Someone has to make way and it is becoming hard to justify an argument where that man is not Finn.Neither of the two slip chances that went down were simple. But, on a docile surface, they were the sort of moments that can shape games: Hafeez was reprieved on 11 and Misbah on 16. On both occasions, the ball flew low and to the left of the fielders. They were desperately tough chances.But we have seen them taken. And we have, perhaps, seen a couple of the balls that flew wide of third slip taken, too. Remember the Stokes wonder-catch at Trent Bridge?Might it be relevant that James Vince was the guilty man on one occasion here? Vince has now been offered six catching chances - nearly all of them really tricky - in his brief Test career and dropped four of them. Suffice to say, Stokes return to the cordon cannot come soon enough.But what of the pitch? Anyone coming to Lords and expecting a track offering much pace and bounce has not watched much cricket here in recent years and, to be fair to the groundstaff, it cannot have been easy to produce a perfect surface given the sustained wet weather in England in recent weeks. It wasnt great, offering little to batsman, bowler or spectator, but weve seen far worse and this was a largely engrossing day.It is ironic, though, that the MCCs cricket committee continue to pontificate about the global game without tending to the problem in their own yard. The pitch at Lords has been sluggish for years. What might have been fine a generation ago looks arcane in the age of T20. If the MCC are serious about combating the dangers to the future of Test cricket they could do a lot worse than focus their attention into potential technological advancements in pitch preparation: drop-in surfaces, artificial heating all offer more help to Test cricket, at least, than limiting the size of bats. The expression about removing the plank from their own eye before worrying about the sawdust in everyone elses springs to mind.Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
LEXINGTON, Ky. Andy Dalton Jersey . -- Mongolian Saturday is based at Arlington Park in Chicago, and has traveled the globe the last 12 months, but clearly he feels most at home on the Keeneland lawn.He loves Keeneland, trainer Enebish Ganbat said. Lexington is his hometown. He was born here.Mongolian Saturday confirmed his affinity for Keeneland by winning the Grade 3, $150,000 Woodford Stakes on Saturday, his first win since taking the 2015 Breeders Cup Turf Sprint on the same course. This victory propels him back into contention for this years wide-open Turf Sprint at Santa Anita. He has rebounded from four unplaced efforts in Group 1 events overseas, and from physical issues that included a bout of shipping sickness in March and an ulcer in July.Mongolian Saturday ($10.80), sent away as the tepid favorite, broke sharply from post 12 in the field of 13. Carlos Montalvo adroitly angled the gelding over to save ground, sitting in third on the outside of Bucchero and Shogood through a sharp opening quarter of 21.75. The three were on fairly even terms turning for home, with Big Rock revving up just behind them, but Mongolian Saturday quickly struck the lead and scooted clear.He then held off the furiously closing veteran Hogy by a half-length. It was another 1-1/4 lengths back to Front Pocket Money and Almasty in a dead heat for third.The final time for the 5-1/2 furlongs on firm turf was 1:03.46.The millionaire Mongolian Saturday, by Any Given Saturday, has now won 8 of 36 career starts. Ganbat said his stable star will ship to Santa Anita about two weeks in advance of the Nov. 5 Turf Sprint. Pink Bengals Jerseys .

I think its a little more stressful for the coaches, especially the offensive coaches, on how we handle those first two scrimmages. Our identity is being big and physical and we want to run the ball. Well, our two backs that are best at doing that have two question marks by them.Chubb, who ran for 1,547 yards as a freshman in 2014 and had 745 yards in the first five games last season, is still recovering from torn knee ligaments and cartilage damage in his left knee. He underwent surgery on Oct. 23, after injuring his knee on his only carry in a 38-31 loss at Tennessee on Oct. 10.Chubb, a junior from Cedartown, Georgia, was able to participate in spring practice, but was held out of all drills involving full contact.The big thing with Nick is going to be live, full-contact tackling, Smart said. Hell do pretty much everything in the first part of camp. Hell catch the ball and do drills and a llot of the thud work. Custom New York Mets Jerseys. The psychological part of going through the first tackling is going to be a big thing for him. We have people working with him on that aspect of it.Michel, a junior from Plantation, Florida, underwent surgery on July 4 after breaking his left forearm in an ATV accident a day earlier. Smart said Michel suffered an open wound and wasnt released from the hospital until Friday.Michel ran for 1,161 yards with eight touchdowns last season, with much of his production coming after Chubbs injury.Although doctors initially projected Michels recovery would take six to eight weeks, Smart said he isnt sure when hell be back.We dont know, Smart said. Its an injury they dont have a lot of experience with because its a non-football injury.Last season, Smart was Alabamas defensive coordinator when running back Kenyan Drake broke his left arm in a 31-6 win at Mississippi State on Nov. 14. Drake didnt suffer a compound fracture and was able to return to action three weeks later in the Tides 29-15 victory over Alabama in the SEC championship game.People say it [will take Michel] six to eight weeks, Smart said. Kenyans was less than that, but his injury was less than that.Until Chubb and Michel are available, senior Brendan Douglas,?sophomore Shaquery Wilson and freshmen Tae Crowder,?Brian Herrien and Elijah Holyfield?figure to share carries in preseason camp. Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys StoreCheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
OAKLAND, Calif. Wil Lutz Jersey . -- Jharel Cotton is off to a historic start to his career with the Oakland Athletics.Hes still not satisfied.Cotton pitched seven crisp innings and the Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 7-1 on Sunday to avoid a series sweep.He became the first As pitcher since at least 1913 to start his career with four consecutive starts of five innings or longer while allowing one earned run or less.I wish I could give up no runs, he said. I feel like in all my starts I give a home run, but theyre good hitters, big league guys.Ryon Healy had three hits, including a two-run homer, and Stephen Vogt drove in three runs to help the As win after being shut out in back-to-back games.Cotton (2-0) struck out five and allowed three hits and no walks. He faced two over the minimum while quieting the Rangers potent offense, and threw just 70 pitches.I guess I have surpassed my own expectations, but just coming to ballpark in the big leagues and just going out there and seeing who I am, its fun to see for myself, Cotton said.It was no fun for the Rangers.Thats the first time weve seen (Cotton), Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. Hes got a special changeup, something we had not seen. When hes got that working for him it does present a challenge when its the first time these guys have seen him.Oakland had lost the first five games on this homestand. The As avoided their first winless homestand in Oakland history.I was nervous coming into today, As manager Bob Melvin said. That wouldve just been a cherry on top of a bad season. Its nice to be able to go out there and score some runs and have a good-feeling game.(The fans) all stayed for the entire game, theyre all waving and staying afterwards to wish us farewell and so forth. Its a great group of people and Im glad we won today for sure.Sean Doolittle and Ryan Dull pitched one inning apiece to complete the five-hitter.Adrian Beltre hit his 32nd home run for Texas.The Rangers, who clinched the AL West on Friday, fell into a tie with the Boston Red Sox for home-field advantage in the playoffs. Texas (92-64) holds a slight tiebreaking advantage based on division record.Beltre homered off Cotton in the seventh, the 445th of his career. The 37-year-old also singled to move past home run king Barry Bonds on the career hits list with 2,937.Coming off consecutive shutout losses in the first two games of the series, the As did all of their scoring in the second to chase starter Colby Lewis (6-4).Bruce Maxwell blooped an RBI single just past the outstretched glove of shortstop Hanser Alberto. Marcus Semien scored on a groundout and Vogt lined a three-run double to right before Healys 12th home run, a towering shot that put Oakland up 7-0.That ended a streak of 23 consecutive scoreless innings by Texas pitchers.MALRBORO MANRookie Matt Olson collected his first major league hit and impressed with his defense, making a leaping catch against the wall in right field.He never looks like anything really bothers him, Melvin said. The first ball that was hit to him it looked like he was smoking a cigarette out there and then he catches it no problem, which made me feel a little better because Ive never seen him play the outfield. And then the last one, I dont know that we have anyone as tall as he is who couldve jumped up there and got it.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: Sonny Gray will come off the disabled list to make his first start in nearly two months against the Angels on Wednesday.

CHICAGO -- Arike Ogunbowale came out strong. Once she was contained -- and DePaul tied the game -- Brianna Turner, Lindsay Allen and the rest of the Irish muscled up and took over.Ogunbowale scored 13 of her 17 points in the first quarter to help No. 2 Notre Dame beat No. 16 DePaul 75-61 on Saturday night.The Irish (9-1) were coming off a 72-61 home loss to No. 1 UConn 72-61 on Wednesday night.Turner and Allen each added 14 points to help the Irish overcome 27-of-61 shooting. Notre Dame eventually won its 12th straight on the road by overwhelming a feisty Blue Demons team with tough coverage and beating them to loose balls.It was really important for us to rely on our defense, to come out and play hard, to battle, coach Muffet McGraw said. We did a lot of good things. It was really important as we havent lost back-to-back in seven-eight-nine years. I dont know what it is.No one ever had to remind McGraw that the Irish last lost consecutive games on Nov. 18 and 21, 2010, as Notre Dame improved to 24-19 against DePaul, one of its nearby rivals.Really pleased with the win, McGraw said. Its historically a tough place for us to play.And the perfect place to atone for the loss to UConn.We had a really good practice yesterday, McGraw said. Everyone was really focused.Jessica January and Brooke Schulte each had 19 points for DePaul (6-3). Schulte hit three 3 pointers, but the Blue Demons shot only 36.4 percent.Brooke had a nice long-game tonight and it was nice to get her scoring mojo back, coach Doug Bruno said. But were the kind of team where everybody has got to contribute.Were too small to be good with only one player.January fell to the court after rolling right ankle in the second quarter, but returned after having it taped.Schulte hit two 3-pointers in the opening 51 seconds of the third quarter to tie it 33-all, but Ogunbowale powered in a layup moments later to put the Irish back in front.Notre Dame put the game away with a 14-4 run in the third quarter after DePaul had tied it at 38.Turner, Allen and Mychal Johnson, who finished with 10 points, led the drive. The 6-foot-3 Turner scored 12 points in the second half, often by leveraging her 6-foot-3 frame.Turner is really good, Bruno said. We made her battle most of the game, but there was a stretch where we just let he have way too much. Sam Mills Jersey. The Irish didnt trail after the opening minute and led 33-27 at the half, but Schulte hit two 3 pointers and Kelly Campbell followed up another at 4:25 in to tie it.After Turner and Marina Mabrey each sunk two free throws, Johnson nailed a 3 from the left corner to give the Irish a 45-38 lead with 3:26 to go in the third.Notre Dame took charge in the fourth with Johnson racing in alone on a layup to open the lead to 13 points with 6:49 to go.BIG PICTURE:Notre Dame: The Irish used their size and muscle against the Blue Demon all over the court. They outrebounded DePaul 48-35.DePaul: The Blue Demons finished a tough stretch, facing four Top 25 teams in their last five games. They lost three of four, falling to Baylor, UConn and Notre Dame, while beating Syracuse. But Brunos thinks the experience will pay off.We play this level of competition because we believe he have a way to find our way into the NCAA Tournament, he said. This will prepare us for it. Ive really put my players through a lot in the last 14-15 days.TIP-INS: Ogunbowale on her quick start Saturday. I think I needed to get back into my flow from the UConn game.

Right-hander Andrew Cashner is going home for a spot in the Texas Rangers rotation. Jerseys Wholesale .A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Friday that the free agent pitcher and the team had reached an agreement on a $10 million, one-year deal. That person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical and wasnt finalized, and the AL West champions had not made an official announcement.Cashner, a Texas native who was a first-round draft pick out of TCU in 2008, finished last season with the Miami Marlins after the San Diego Padres traded him July 29. He was 5-11 with a 5.25 ERA in 28 games last season.Texas had inquired about Cashner before the non-waiver trading deadline last summer, and had previously been interested in him.The 30-year-old Cashner will join a Rangers rotation thats led by aces Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish, and includes Martin Perez.After a standout career at TCU, about 20 miles from the Rangers ballpark, Cashner was drafted 19th overall by the Cubs in 2008. He made his major league debut two years later with 53 appearances for Chicago. The Cubs traded him to San Diego after the 2011 season, in the deal that sent first baseman Anthony Rizzo to Chicago, and Cashner eventually became a starter for the Padres.Cashner has a 31-53 record with a 3.89 ERA in 202 career games. He has started 103 of his last 104 games since making five relief appearances for San Diego the first month of the 2013 season.Texas earlier this month declined its $11 million option for left-handed starter Derek Holland, instead electing a $1.5 million buyout and making him a free agent.
