CLEVELAND -- A rough season for Yan Gomes has taken a cruel twist. Ty Rattie Blues Jersey .Just as Clevelands catcher was about to return to the lineup after missing six weeks with a separated shoulder, Gomes broke his right wrist during a minor league rehab assignment and is likely done for the season.Gomes sustained a non-displaced fracture when he was hit by a pitch Wednesday night for Double-A Akron. The 29-year-old had been expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday and catch Corey Kluber when the AL Central-leading Indians opened a crucial three-game series against Detroit.Instead, hell be seen by a specialist who will determine whether hell play again in 2016.Its an unfortunate blow for Gomes, who was already struggling at the plate when he separated his right shoulder on July 17 when he fell trying to beat out a play at first base in Minnesota.Manager Terry Francona felt badly for Gomes, who was limited to 95 games last season because of a knee injury.I think its the understatement that a few things have gone wrong, Francona said. I think when those types of things happen, and they do happen, I fall back on, I get to see how hard he worked to come back. When guys get challenged, its nice to see that he doesnt tuck his tail and run. If this is something that takes a while to heal, hes going to continue to work.Thats what youre looking for. Things do happen. Things are going to continue to happen, were glad that we have fighters who want to come back and be every bit as good or better than they were.The Indians had hoped to have Gomes back for the stretch run as they try to clinch their first division title since 2007. He would have been another right-handed bat and his familiarity with Clevelands pitching staff cant be underestimated.With Gomes out, the Indians will continue to play Roberto Perez and Chris Gomes behind the plate.Cleveland has withstood other major injuries this season. Left fielder Michael Brantley was limited to only 11 games following shoulder surgery and starter Carlos Carrasco missed six weeks with a hamstring injury.Francona has been impressed with his teams resiliency.Those are guys you want on your side, he said. And were not the only team. Shoot, there are a lot of good players in this game. But these are our guys, and I get proud of them, not just for hitting a home run but Gomer trying to come back through all this. I dont think anybody would have said anything had he not come back from the shoulder.But he worked so damn hard that he kind of willed himself.Francona also revealed that right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall is day-to-day with an abdominal issue. He underwent an MRI, which Francona said came back good.The Indians will be cautious with Chisenhall.When he plays, we dont want him to hurt himself, Francona said. So were trying to balance giving him a day or two and then well keep re-evaluating him. We dont want to pinch-hit him and have him run out of the box and hurt himself. Were trying to balance that now and well continue to do that. Kyle Brodziak Jersey . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans. The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. Alexander Steen Jersey . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. http://www.blueshockeypro.com/authentic-ryan-reaves-blues-jersey/ .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. TORONTO -- Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman followed up one of his best starts of the season with one of his worst.Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki each hit solo home runs off Gausman in the first inning, Marco Estrada snapped a four-start winless streak and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Baltimore 6-5 on Friday night.Encarnacion reached base three times and scored twice as the Blue Jays won the opener of a three-game series between the top two teams in the AL East, cutting Baltimores division lead to half a game. The Orioles have lost four straight.After throwing seven shutout innings to beat Cleveland in his previous outing, Gausman (2-8) allowed six hits and matched a season-worst by giving up six runs. He lasted three innings, matching his shortest start of the season.This is obviously a big series for us, Gausman said. For me to go out there and just not even be competitive was bad.Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Gausman never found his step against the powerful Blue Jays.He made a lot of mistakes with his breaking ball and just elevated a lot of pitches, Showalter said. He made some good pitches but not enough of them against a good hitting team.Mark Trumbos two-out double gave Baltimore a 2-0 lead in the top of the first but the Blue Jays answered with a trio of solo shots in the bottom half. Bautista drilled Gausmans second pitch of the game off the facing of the second deck, Encarnacion hit a one-out blast and Tulowitzki added a two-out homer.Encarnacions homer was his 28th, third-most in majors.I was just all over the place, I had no feel for anything, Gausman said. I felt bad for (catcher Matt) Wieters, I was just kind of beating him up back there.It was the second time this season and 35th time in team history the Blue Jays have hit three home runs in an inning. The last time it happened was July 5, when Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson and Ezequiel Carrera connected in the third inning off Kansas Citys Chris Young.The Orioles lead the majors with 152 home runs while Toronto is second with 147. The Bluue Jays have 15 multihomer innings this season. Joe Mullen Jersey. Wieters was one of several Orioles upset at home plate umpire Manny Gonzalez. Adam Jones argued after being called out on strikes in the first, and Showalter came out to break up an argument between Wieters and Gonzalez in the eighth.There were a lot of strikes that werent strikes, Showalter said. Players have tough nights. Obviously (Gonzalez) had a bad one.Making his second start after a stint on the disabled list with a sore back, Estrada (6-4) allowed four runs, three earned, and five hits in six innings.I dont feel one hundred percent, Estrada said. But I still feel I can give the team quality innings.Joaquin Benoit worked the seventh, Jason Grilli gave up Manny Machados solo home run in the eighth and Roberto Osuna finished for his 22nd save.Machado tied it 3-all when he scored from first base on an infield grounder in the third. With third baseman Donaldson shifted to the right side, Machado broke for third base after Donaldson threw Chris Davis out at first. Catcher Russell Martin scrambled to cover third base but couldnt handle Justin Smoaks throw. Machado scored standing up as the ball rolled down the third base line toward home plate.TURNING JAPANESEBaltimore signed former Reds RHP Logan Ondrusek and designated RHP Chaz Roe for assignment. The 31-year-old Ondrusek went 21-11 with a 3.89 ERA and two saves in 281 games with Cincinnati from 2010 to 2014. He spent the past two seasons in Japan with the Tokyo Yakult Swallows, going 8-3 with a 2.17 ERA and 11 saves in 102 games.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: Toronto signed C Erik Kratz to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Yovani Gallardo (3-2, 5.37) is winless in five starts.Blue Jays: LHP J.A.

RALEIGH, N. Jakub Voracek Jersey .C. -- North Carolina State thrived in a battle of long-range shooting.Terry Henderson scored 25 points and made six 3-pointers to help the Wolfpack beat Fairfield 99-78 on Sunday.Dennis Smith Jr. added 17 points and five 3-pointers for the Wolfpack (9-2), who won their fourth game in a row.NC State shot 53 percent from the floor and made 13 of 25 3-point attempts, taking advantage of Fairfields zone defense.If thats how they want to play, thats on them, Henderson said. Teams have got to pick their poison.Abdul-Malik Abu scored 14 points, and Torin Dorn and Omer Yurtseven had 12 points each for the Wolfpack.The Stags (5-4) made just 11 of 42 3-point tries, attempting 17 more 3-pointers than they had in any game this season.Were comfortable with a lot of those shots, Fairfield coach Sydney Johnson said. We want to get up and down and let them fly as long as theyre good looks.Tyler Nelson scored 23 points to lead Fairfield, which dropped its third consecutive game.Jerry Johnson Jr. added 17 points, and Curtis Cobb had 14 for the Stags.NC State led 48-39 at halftime after seizing control with a 19-0 run midway through the first half.Fairfield went scoreless for more than six minutes as NC State built its lead. The Wolfpack made four 3-pointers, including two by Henderson, during the flurry.BIG PICTUREFairfield: The Stags came out hot after a 12-day break from game action, making seven of their first 11 field goal attempts, but they couldnt maintain the pace. They continue a difficult portion of their schedule that includes only one home game in the month of December.NC State: Short-handed for much of the season, the Wolfpack got a chance to flex their muscles at full strength for the second game in a row. NC State once again showcased its ability to score inside and from the perimeter, but defensive improvement remains a necessity as conference play approaches.I think the depth is going to help our defense more than anything, NC State coach Mark Gottfried said. I think they understand it. Theyve got to play hard and play well, especially defensively, no lapses, or somebody else is ready to play. Thats going to help us become a better team.MILESTONE MANNelson, who entered the game averaging a team-best 19.9 points per game, became the 42nd player in Fairfield history to score 1,000 career points. He reached the milestone early in the first half with a pretty left-handed scoop shot.STAR WATCHSmith played another solid floor game with nine assists, five rebounds and two steals. The one knock on him during his impressive freshman season has been his outside shooting. But after making just 27.5 percent from 3-point range in the first 10 games, he hit 5 of 7 3-point tries against Fairfield. To his credit, he made some big shots, Sydney Johnson said. If he does that, the sky is the limit for him.TIP-INSNC State registered a season-high point total and tied its season high for first-half points. . Fairfield made all 17 of its free throws. . The Stags shot 3-pointers on 62 percent of their field-goal attempts. They entered the game with an average of 35 percent of their field goal attempts coming from 3-point range.UP NEXTFairfield: The Stags take on their second consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference opponent when they play Boston College on Wednesday night in Uncasville, Conn.NC State: The Wolfpack take on McNeese State on Thursday night in the fifth-game of a six-game homestand.

SAN DIEGO -- Philadelphia Phillies manager Pete Mackanin saw the hard-hit grounder to Maikel Franco and contemplated a double play. Puma Basket Heart Denim .Franco thought otherwise, aiming for a triple play.Good thing Franco followed his instincts because his decision helped the Phillies to a 6-5 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.Pinch-hitter Tommy Josephs had a tie-breaking RBI single in the seventh inning but it was in the bottom of the inning that the Phillies made history. The triple play was the first at Petco Park.I thought Mikey was going to go from third to first and Im glad he didnt, Mackanin said. Big play to that game was the triple play -- how about that? The ball took him right toward third which allowed him to be able to do it.The Padres were gifted two walks to open the seventh. But then pinch-hitter Jabari Blash smoked a grounder to Franco, who stepped on the bag and fired to second baseman Hernandez to erase Rondon, and Hernandezs relay to first beat Blash by a step.By the time I picked my head up and saw where he fielded it, I knew there was a chance of turning a triple play, Blash said. It wasnt the ideal situation.It was the Phillies first triple play since doing it against the New York Mets on Aug. 23, 2009.Rookie shortstop Jose Rondons throwing error on Cesar Hernandezs grounder leading off the seventh against Brad Hand (3-3) allowed the Phillies hitter to reach second base safely. Hernandez scored the tie breaking run two outs later on Josephs single to left.That was a huge at-bat, Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff said. He put a good swing on it.Eickhoff (7-12) pitched six innings, surrendering five runs and five hits with five strikeouts.If you look at the line, its tough to look at, he said. But I just tried to keep us in the game the best I could. It was a great team win.Jeanmar Gomez worked the ninth for his 29th save.Ryan Schimpf capped the Padres three-run sixth with a game-tying 326-foot, two-run homer that just stayed fair down the right-field line and. Alex Dickerson had a sacrifice fly earlier in the inning.We fought back, Padres manager Andy Green said.Dickersons seventh homer of the year in the fourth pulled the Padres to 5-2.Philadelphia sent nine batters to the plate in the fourth to seize a 5-1 edge as Jarred Cosart got knocked around. Most of the damage came with two outs.After a double play, Carlos Ruiz, who had three hits, drove in Ryan Howard with a single and scored on Freddy Galvis double. Eickhoff helped his cause with a run-scoring single and Odubel Herrera capped the inning with an RBI single.Herrera also had three hits.San Diegos tied the score 1-1 in the third, thanks to some sloppy Philadelphia defense. Derek Norris opened with a single and Franco then flagged down Rondons hot grounder at third. However, Francos errant throw to second went into right field and Norris eventually scored on Jankowskis groundout.The Phillies took the lead in the first inning as Herrera turned on Cosarts 92-mph fastball for a solo homer, his 12th on the season. That snapped a string of 13 consecutive innings that the Phillies had failed to score with Eickhoff pitching.I thought Jarred was better today, Green said. He gave us a chance.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Zach Eflin (3-4, 4.77) gets the nod as the team continues its West Coast swing against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. Eflin has won but once in his last four starts, which includes two no-decisions. It is Eflins first outing against the Dodgers, a team he was traded to by the San Diego Padres before he landed with the Phillies.Padres: RHP Luis Perdomo (5-5,6.67) kicks off the Padres road trip in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Perdomo has given up three runs of less in seven of his last nine starts since June 15. He was tagged for a loss in his last outing, working 6 2/3 innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday.

Former Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale isnt sure James Harden can morph into a full-time point guard. Nike Shox NZ Mens Running Shoes White/Black .Harden is moving into the role under new coach Mike DAntoni, and while he did lead shooting guards with a touch rate of 85.1 percent last season, McHale wonders whether Harden can become a facilitator first.You are who you are a lot of times, McHale, who will analyze games for TNT this season, said during a Tuesday conference call with reporters. Can you change and be a facilitator first? I dont know. Kevin Garnett, a guy I go way, way back with -- Kevin Garnett was always a pass-first player. He was a pass-first player his first day of practice when he was with the Minnesota Timberwolves.James is a scorer, and at the end of the day, you do fall back on what you are. James is a scorer at heart. Can you change that? ... Can you be something that youre really not for an entire 82-game season? Hes a great facilitator, great passer, and he has great vision -- he really is a scorer as a basketball player.McHale said Harden dominated the ball when he coached the Rockets, moving traditional point guard Patrick Beverley to shooting guard at times. Beverleys touch rate was 55.8 percent last season, compared to Hardens 85.1.Those numbers are expected to increase under DAntonis up-tempo offense, which calls for spacing for outside shooting, the ability to push the pace and high pick-and-rolls.Grant Hill played one season under DAntoni in Phoenix during the 2007-08 season, when the?Suns?averaged 110.1 points per game -- third best in the league.Hill, along with McHale, doesnt see much difference in what Harden did in the past. However, there are some concerns about whether Harden can operate the offense efficiently.Now you have a guy in Harden, he wants to score and hes great at it, and I know he had seven-plus assists last year, Hill said. But its going to be interesting. The jury is still out. Im not sure how its all going to work. I think he will put up great numbers, and his numbers may even be better ... if thats possible from last year. In terms of how the team plays, how they play together, how they jell, Im not entirely sure the style of play -- the position that Harden is in -- is going to translate to success with the team.In three preseason games, Harden has averaged a league-leading 12 assists per game and is second in scoring at 23.3 points.Houston has won all three of those preseason games, with its fourth contest coming Wednesday against New Orleans. Air Force Ones For Sale . -- Derrick Rose shook off poor shooting early to hit clutch shots late and Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 104-95 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. Nike Air Force Ones High Tops Wholesale . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. http://www.sirimole.com/cheap-nike-air-zoom-structure-18.html . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (7-9)OPEN CAMP: July 25, PhiladelphiaLAST YEAR: Chip Kelly was fired before final game and team missed playoffs for second straight year. Sam Bradford showed enough in second half to get two-year contract extension, but Eagles traded slew of picks to move up to No. 2 overall to select Carson Wentz. Defensive lineman Fletcher Cox developed into top player and received huge contract. New coach Doug Pederson brings familiarity back to organization; he played behind Donovan McNabb for Andy Reid and was assistant under Reid in Philly and Kansas City.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: QBs Wentz and Chase Daniel, CB Leodis McElvin and Ron Brooks, G Brandon Brooks, S Rodney McLeod, WR Rueben Randle, OL Stefan Wisniewski,IMPORTANT LOSSES: RB DeMarco Murray, LB DeMeco Ryans, CB Byron Maxwell, LB Kiko Alonsoo. Air Force 1 Low White And Gold. CAMP NEEDS: Determine starters at wide receiver, left guard, two of three cornerback spots, kicker. Get acclimated to Pedersons offense and new defense under Jim Schwartz. Build chemistry with new faces on both sides of ball. Keep Bradford healthy. Have Wentz adjust to NFL.EXPECTATIONS: Rebuilding is more realistic than playoff push, but theres no dominant team in NFC East, so cant you rule out contention. Giving Bradford $22 million guaranteed on two-year deal means management didnt want to disregard this season.

CINCINNATI -- The Bengals are looking up at the standings, something they havent had to do for two years. Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys .And the defending AFC North champions have some significant issues to fix in order to make up ground.They couldnt run the ball again during a 24-16 defeat in Pittsburgh on Sunday, the Bengals third loss in a row to their Ohio River rival.This one left them playing catch-up, something they havent had to do. Last season, they led the division the whole way after an 8-0 start.Two games in, Cincinnati (1-1) trails both the Steelers (2-0) and the Ravens (2-0) with the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos -- also 2-0 -- coming to town for the Bengals home opener on Sunday.One of their most glaring problems in the first two games was their inability to run. They managed only 57 yards -- a 3.0 average per carry -- during a 22-20 win at the Jets in their season opener.Andy Dalton was able to get them through it, completing all but three of his passes in the last three quarters.They were even worse on Sunday in Pittsburgh in the rain, managing only 46 yards for a 2.6-yard average. Through the first two games, their top running backs havent even combined on 100 yards total.Jeremy Hill has 53 yards on 20 carries. Giovani Bernard has 42 yards on 10 carries. Their longest run of the season is only 12 yards.They get to the line and go nowhere.Ive got to break more tackles, Bernard said on Monday. Ive got to make that guy miss. As a running back, you always try to not let that first one tackle me. I havent done that.Their inability to run was most glaring in the third quarter, when they drove for a first-and-goal at the 1-yard line. Hill lost 2 yards on a run up the middle, and Dalton threw a couple of incompletions, forcing Cincinnati to settle for a field goal.Dalton got sacked a career-high seven times in the opener. He was sacked only once in Pittsburgh, but the running game was no better.One of those things got fixed this week, offensive coordinator Ken Zampese said Monday, referring to the sacks. This coming week, well get the other one handled.Cincinnatis running game ranked second-to-last in the league after two games. Only Minnesota -- which lost Adrian Peterson to a knee injury on Sunday -- was worse.Game notes Coach Marvin Lewis explained his decision not to challenge a call that C.J. Uzomah was out of bounds on a catch at the back of the end zone. The tight ends knee landed right by the back line, and the officials ruled it was an incomplete pass. The replays were inconclusive.First lets clear one thing up: The coaches dont get a view like you guys think they get, Lewis said, referring to the various angles and stop-action views. Thats such a fallacy of TV, of what they get upstairs. They dont get them. Then its immediate, weve got to go to the next play.The Bengals thought that receiver Tyler Boyds fumble that essentially ended the game should have been reversed. After a review, the officials upheld the call. The Bengals thought he fumbled after he was down.Everybody on the field thought the opposite, and it didnt work that way, Lewis said.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Vlade Divac Jersey . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Georgios Papagiannis Jersey . Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. http://www.kingsbasketballpro.com/Chris-Webber-Kings-Jersey/ . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. NEW ORLEANS -- If Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams keep scoring like this, opponents are going to have trouble matching up with Los Angeles second unit this season.Clarkson scored 23 points, Williams added 21, and the Lakers won for the fifth time in six games, beating the New Orleans Pelicans 126-99 on Saturday night.Me and Lou are going to be real aggressive coming in. Were trying to do a good job of leading this second group, bringing the energy, scoring the ball, pushing the pace, Clarkson said. Coach (Luke Walton) gave that to us. Thats our role and thats what were going to do.DAngelo Russell scored 22 and Nick Young added 15 points for the Lakers, who shot 55.3 percent (52 of 94) overall and made 16 of 30 3-pointers.Combined, Lakers guards scored 84 points.It just shows how much firepower weve got and how deep we can go, Clarkson said. Weve got so many options, its crazy.Anthony Davis scored 34 for New Orleans, but left the game for a pivotal stretch with lower back pain after his layup had cut Los Angeles lead to 63-62 in the third quarter. Davis, who crumpled to the court after his shot fell, went to the locker room and was out of the game for four-plus minutes while the Lakers went on a 14-0 run.It just locked up on me, Davis said of his back. I hate being out, so I tried to do whatever I could to come back.Davis added nine more points after he returned, but New Orleans never recovered, losing for the ninth time in its first 10 games and dropping to 0-5 at home.New Orleans has been without three top players -- guards Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, and forward Quincy Pondexter -- so far this season. The lack of depth caused by those absences stuck out against a Lakers second unit that has demonstrated exceptional chemistry lately.Their bench totally dominated the game, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. We couldnt get Lou stopped. I thought Clarkson pretty much scored at will.Rookie Buddy Hield scored 18 points and Langston Galloway added 12 for the Pelicans.Young was 5 for 7 from 3-point range, while Clarkson went 4 of 6 and Russell 4 of 77. Jason Williams Jersey. Rookie Brandon Ingram scored 10 points for the Lakers. He left the game in the second half with what team officials said was a sprained left ankle, but Ingram said he might have returned if his team hadnt built such a comfortable lead in the fourth quarter.TIP-INSLakers: Julius Randle had 11 rebounds to go with eight points. ... Williams entered the game as one of the top scorers in the NBA in a reserve role, averaging 15.9 points. He scored 14 in the first half, hitting six of his first 10 shots, including a 3-pointer. His 21 points tied a season high. ... Young, who entered the game 22 of 22 on free throws this season, did not attempt a foul shot -- nor did any Lakers starter. ... The Lakers 53.3 percent shooting from 3-point range was their best since hitting 14 of 25 (56 percent) in a 111-103 win over Denver on Dec. 30, 2014.Pelicans: Davis reached 30 points for the seventh time in 10 games this season. ... Hield reached double digits in scoring for the fourth time in six games, scoring no fewer than nine points in a game during that span and as many as 18 twice.REMINISCINGWalton and Gentry hugged in the hallway outside the locker rooms before the game. They also reminisced about their time as assistants on the same staff with Golden State during the 2014-15 season, when the Warriors were NBA champions. Gentry said he was not at all surprised to see Waltons early success as a first-year head coach of a young team that won only 17 games last season.Hes got a great feel for the game, but I think more so than that, hes got a great feel for people. He can relate to anyone, Gentry said.Gentry also alluded to a couple of Lakers players whove said they would run through a wall for Walton. In our profession, Gentry began, laughing as he spoke, youve accomplished a lot when an NBA player says something like that about his coach.UP NEXTLakers: Visit Minnesota on Sunday night.Pelicans: Host Boston on Monday night.

However, the spinner had the last laugh as he dismissed the 22-year-old the very next ball, an inside edge onto his pads looping up for Dinesh Karthik to take the catch.Jadeja struck again in his next over, pegging back Vijays leg stump as the batsman backed away trying to give himself room to hit over the offside. Aaron Finch led Gujarat Lions to a straightforward win over Kings XI That brought Kings XIs two most dangerous batsman together - David Miller and Glenn Maxwell - but the partnership was short lived as Bravo bowled both men in the space of three balls in the 12th over.Maxwell was yorked as he looked to make room for himself before a brilliant slower ball deceived Miller, dipping under his bat and clattering into the stumps.Marcus Stoinis (33) and Wriddhiman Saha (20) did their best to move things along but after both hauled out in the final over, to give Bravo his third and fourth wickets, Kings XIs total of 161-6 looked well below par.However, Gurajats reply got off to an inauspicious start with Brendon McCullum gone for a second ball duck in the first over, stumped by Saha off the bowling of Sandeep Sharma. The Lions soon got into their stride though as Finch and Suresh Raina made the most of the powerplay, both players happy to rotate the strike and quick to punish the bad balls.Raina went for 20 in the final over of the powerplay but Finch continued to ease his way through the innings, showing superb touch and timing rather than the brute force he is usually associated with.Alongside Karthik, Finch brought the required rate down to less than a run a ball and by the time he was stumped off Pardeep Sahu in the 12th over, victory for Gujarat was all but secured.There was still time for Mitchell Johnson to show off his foot skills to run out Jadeja (8) and then dismiss youngster Ishan Kishan (11) before Karthik (41 not out) and Bravo got the Lions over the line with more than two overs to spare.Watch continued coverage of the IPL on Sky Sports, with the next live action seeing Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Sunrisers Hyderabad from 3pm on Sky Sports 1 on Tuesday.

Kyrgios matched Isners powerful service game, especially in the tiebreakers, and topped the ace count 17-16.I knew it was going tough from the get go; John just feels so comfortable out on that court, Kyrgios said. I thought in the tiebreaks I didnt really miss a ball . . . I just did all the right things. I stayed calm.He won in Marseille, France, in February for his lone tour title.The match ended on Isners fourth double fault. During Isners 15-match Atlanta winning streak that ended Sunday, the former University of Georgia player was 12-2 in tiebreakersThe 6-foot-4 Kyrgios didnt appear bothered by the conditions in the match that began with temperatures in the mid-90s, thick humidity and sunshine that helped raise the on-court temperature at Atlantic Station to 130 degrees.

I hadnt played under the sun this week at all, so maybe it was a bit of an adjustment for me.Kyrgios fought off three break points in the second game of the match to even the set at 1. Neither player broke the others serve all.I think him holding that first game certainly was important. It definitely settled him down, Isner said. If I go up 2-0, theres a good chance that sets over.Playing in the day after three night matches, Isner faltered in both tiebreakers.I got a second wind in the second set, and I felt like I put myself in position to win, but I just sort of fell apart, he said. (In the second breaker) I doubled, steered a forehand and missed a forehand. Ive just got to fix a few things. It could just be between my ears.Kyrgios will rise to a career-high ranking of No. 16 in the world Monday, while Isner was likely to remain No. 17.This week was so much fun, Kyrgios said. I had my best friend here. I had my mom here, and a couple of the guys Im closest with on the Tour were here early in the week. It was probably the best week Ive had off the court in a long time. Its just rewarding that I played well.
