To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. Castleford are preparing to go to the High Court in their row with Sale Sharks over Super Leagues record-breaking winger Denny Solomona.The 23-year-old Auckland-born Samoan international, who scored 40 tries for his club in 2016, has failed to turn up for the start of pre-season training with the Tigers amid growing speculation that he is set to switch codes with the Sharks.Castleford had hoped to hang on to Solomona, having rejected three offers for a player who has two years left on his contract, but decided to put the matter into the hands of their legal team after he allegedly posted a video on Instagram of him socialising with Sale players at their training ground.A statement issued by the Tigers earlier this month said: Given the information which appears to be in the public domain, we confirm that we have now instructed our lawyers.Castleford have enlisted the help of the Rugby Football League, which has confirmed it is investigating the actions of Solomonas agent Andy Clarke and has appointed leading London barrister Nick Randall QC, whose other clients include England captain Wayne Rooney, and Leeds-based sports lawyer Richard Cramer to fight their case.The Press Association understands that Castleford have given Sale an opportunity to resolve the matter before it gooes to the High Court. Youth Marcell Harris Jersey. A Sale spokesman said the club had no comment and Castleford chief executive Steve Gill said: I have been advised by our legal team to say nothing.Solomona is the second overseas player to walk out on a Super League club despite being under contract. However, whereas Warrington have retained the playing registration of Australian scrum-half Chris Sandow and would be entitled to compensation if he joins another rugby league club, either in Super League or the NRL, it is thought Sale are arguing they do not have to pay a transfer fee for a switch of codes.Castleford will point to the £500,000 fee paid by Bath to secure the signature of South Sydneys England forward Sam Burgess in 2014 in their counter argument.Sale have already signed one rugby league international winger in Josh Charnley and have been impressed by the scoring prowess of Solomona, who played for Melbourne Storm before moving to Super League with London Broncos in 2014.Solomona, who made his debut for Samoa in October, was short-listed for the Man of Steel award and named in the 2016 Dream Team after scoring seven hat-tricks for the Tigers this year. NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ChinaJerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
While Wiggle It Jiggleit will be in attendance for Saturdays $225,550 U. Alvaro Odriozola Spain Jersey .S. Pacing Championship, race 11 of 16 on the afternoon program at The Meadowlands, owner George Teague Jr. is here due to a commitment more than anything else.I made a promise to Jeff (Gural) to bring the horse here for Hambletonian Day and Im honoring that promise, said Teague about the 2015 Horse of the Year.Ideally it would have been nice to give him two weeks off, but hell be fine, he continued.Teagues commitment gave Gurals track the Big 3 for the U.S. Championship and though only seven entered, the stars are aligned.I think Always B Miki is the best right now, said Teague with an emphasis on the last two words.As for the 43 career starts over the course of three seasons for Wiggle It Jiggleit, the owner had this to say: I would say he is sounder now than he has ever been.Thats quite incredible, especially since earlier this year there were some times where his soundness appeared to be in question.Teague has never been disappointed in the horse and he continues to marvel as to just how well the gelding comes out of races that would appear to sap the strength from normal horses.Hes incredible. After the race in Saratoga and the long ship back he was up early the next morning cleaning out his feed and looking to get out of his stall, said Teague.There may be no rest for the weary, but dont count this 4-year-old son of Mr Wiggles among that group.As for Saturdays contest, Teague reiterated that he will not talk to his son Montrell about driving instructions while at the same time stressing what he would not like to see happen on Saturday.If Always B Miki wants to break a world record, Im okay with that, just let him do most of the work, said Teague, referring to the fact that in previous races both Freaky Feet Pete (post 4 on Saturday) and Wiggle It Jiggleit (post 6) have expelled a lot of energy in the early stages only to yield to Always B Miki afterwards.Look at how many 25 and change quarters they had to go in a row, Teague said.Though Always B Miki drew inside of his fellow Indiana-bred rivals with post three, the odds are again in his favor to reach the front after the quarter rather than duel before it. Last years Cane Pace upsetter, Dealt A Winner, appears to have arrived on the exact date a year later in peak condition for trainer Mark Silva. The son of Cams Card Shark blew out a 1:48 2/5 mile against cheaper company on July 23 at The Meadowlands preparing for this event. Andy Miller will guide him from the rail.Teague confirmed that if all goes well on Saturday, Wiggle It Jiggleit will ship to Indiana for the Dan Patch on August 12.

"It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Joe Maddon says a solid stretch of play -- not a soft spot in the schedule -- has helped the Tampa Bay Rays get back into the AL East race. Chris Archer pitched six strong innings, while Matt Joyce and Kelly Johnson drove in two runs apiece to help the second-place Rays extend their winning streak to six games with a 4-1 victory over the sputtering Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night. The Rays matched their longest winning streak of the year, climbed a season-best 11 games over .500, and improved to 8-1 during a stretch of 14 consecutive games against the struggling Twins, Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros leading to the All-Star break. The Twins have lost nine of their last 10. "Were starting to play up to our capabilities," said Maddon, who shrugged off questions about Tampa Bays surge coming against teams with losing records. "We dont assume anything," the Rays manager said. "We arent looking at records. Were just playing." Archer (3-3) limited the Twins to an unearned run and three hits to outpitch fellow rookie Kyle Gibson (1-2), who was done in by one bad inning in his third career start for Minnesota. Joyce drove in two runs with a two-out, bases-loaded single that snapped a scoreless tie in the fourth, the outfielders first RBIs since June 15. Johnson followed with a two-run double for his first multi-RBI game since May 27 to give Archer all the support he would need. "The teams been playing really well the last couple of weeks and were starting to build a little confidence in each other," Joyce said. "Any big moment that comes up now, we have confidence in any guy in that position. ... I think thats how good teams win, and thats how they get on rolls like were on right now." The Rays starter yielded Joe Mauers first-inning double and singles by Trevor Plouffe and Chris Parmelee in the second. He retired 10 in a row before the Twins scored their only run without getting a hit, thanks to Brian Dozier being hit by a pitch, Archers two-base throwing error and Ryan Doumits sacrifice fly. Alex Torres, Jake McGee and Fernando Rodney each pitched a scoreless inning for the Rays, with Rodney getting the final three outs to finish a combined five-hitter and earn his 21st save. The Twins had two hits after the second inning -- singles by Mauer and Doumit leading off the ninth. Rodney struck out Justin Morneau, Plouffe and Oswaldo Arcia to end the game. "A tough night offensively for us," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Gibson, meanwhile, allowed four runs and four hits over six innings. He walked four and struck out three. It was the second straight loss for the 25-year-old right-hander, who beat Kansas City in his big league debut on June 29 before being roughed up five days later by the New York Yankees. Iago Aspas Spain Jersey. Gibson limited the Rays to one baserunner through three innings, but ran into trouble after walking two batters to begin the fourth. James Loney drew a two-out walk to load the bases, and Joyce and Johnson followed with their big hits to dump the Twins into a 4-0 hole they couldnt escape with a sputtering offence. After going 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position while losing Mondays series opener 7-4, the Twins failed to take advantage a couple of early opportunities against Archer. They were 0 for 3 with runners in scoring position in the first two innings, then didnt have another batter reached base until Dozier was hit by a pitch leading off the sixth. Archers errant pickoff throw -- Tampa Bays first error in 10 games -- allowed Dozier to advance to third before Doumit delivered his sacrifice fly. "I thought Gibby threw the ball well all except one inning where he just lost the strike zone. I thought he settled in after that and went back out there for a couple more good innings. One bad inning un-done us," Gardenhire said. "Offensively early, we were banging some balls pretty hard. I thought we were hitting them on the screws at people, and their kid settled in there pretty decent. Did what he had to do, and got to the bullpen and they threw some really good arms at us there," Gardenhire added. "We all know Rodney, I think, is going to misfire a little bit, but hes got filthy stuff. We got him in a situation, but he made pitches when he had to." NOTES: Tampa Bay rookie OF Wil Myers, in a 5-for-31 slump, was out of the lineup for the first time since making his big league debut on June 18. With the Rays and Twins finishing up this series night game Wednesday followed by a Thursday matinee, Maddon said it was a logical day to give the young slugger a day off. ... Twins LHP Caleb Thielbar, whose grandmother died, will go on the bereavement list Thursday. He will rejoin the team this weekend and be eligible to pitch on Sunday against the New York Yankees. RHP Michael Tonkin will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to fill Thielbars spot on the roster. ... Minnesota OF Josh Willingham (left knee) has started doing light exercises. ... Twins OF Wilkin Ramirez (concussion-like symptoms) is still having headaches. He has missed the past 40 games. ... Despite losing its top two home runs hitters (B.J. Upton and Carlos Pena) from last season to free agency, the Rays are on a pace to hit 182 homers -- seven more than in 2012. NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
Milan Lucic and Kyle Okposo, two of the NHLs top free agents, took full advantage of two of the leagues worst teams eager to pair a veteran with a young star. Air Max 1 Jewel Black.The 28-year-old wingers each got $42 million, seven-year contracts Friday even though neither is a proven or prolific scorer.Okposo, coming off a 22-goal year with the New York Islanders, moved upstate to join the Buffalo Sabres, who havent made the playoffs since 2011 or finished higher than seventh in their division in three years.Lucic, who scored just 20 times last season with the Los Angeles Kings, is following the money to play for the lowly Edmonton Oilers.Its about time this team starts heading in the right direction, he said of the Oilers, who want to surround Connor McDavid with experienced talent.NHL teams didnt waste time making a flurry of deals on the first shift of free agency. None involved a superstar player, not after Steven Stamkos decided to stay in Tampa Bay with an eight-year, $68 million contract agreed to earlier this week.Two days later, Tampa Bay may have made the best series of moves overall in a bid to stay near the top in the Eastern Conference. The Stanley Cup contender signed standout defenseman Victor Hedman to a $63 million, eight-year extension and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy to a $10.5 million, three-year extension.Its been a good week for us, Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said.It has been a bad decade for the Oilers, who havent made the playoffs since they lost Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals to the Carolina Hurricanes and had the fewest points in the Western Conference last season for the second time in three years.Lucic said two people, Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli and the 19-year-old McDavid, were the reason he joined a franchise that most highly touted free agents have ignored in recent summers.The McDavid factor changes it all, Lucic said.Lucic was also lured to Edmonton in part because of his relationship with Chiarelli, who was his general manager when he played for the Boston Bruins. Chiarelli said 12 teams tried to sign Lucic, indicating one of them was the Kings, the only franchise that couldve offered him an eight-year deal under the NHLs collective bargaining agreement.He was offered a longer term, Chiarelli said. He was offered more money.Like Lucic, Okposo will get a chance to play with one of the leagues most promising players, 19-year-old center Jack Eichel.He knows Jacks a great, young player, Sabres general manager Tim Murray said.Heres a look at some of the other notable moves on the opening day of NHL free agency:- The New York Islanders signed forwards Andrew Ladd (seven years, $38.5 million) and Jason Chimera (two years, $4.5 million) after losing Okposo and Nielsen.- The Vancouver Canucks signed winger Loui Eriksson (six years, $36 million) coming off his 30-goal, 33-assist season in Boston.- The Detroit Red Wings signed center Frans Nielsen (six years, $31.5 million) to address a need with the departure of Pavel Datsyuk and re-signed center Darren Helm (five years, $19.25 million) before he could have been on the market.- After spending his entire, 10-season career in St. Louis, David Backes (five years, $30 million) bolted to play for the Bruins.- The Montreal Canadiens signed forward Alexander Radulov (one year, $5.75 million) to play in the NHL for the first time since he was with the Nashville Predators during the 2011-12 season.- The Calgary Flames signed forward Troy Brouwer (four years, $18 million) hoping he can bring some success he helped St. Louis and Chicago have in the postseason.- The San Jose Sharks added forward Mikkel Boedker (four years, $16 million) and defenseman David Schlemko (four years, $8.4 million) to bolster their chances of getting back to the Stanley Cup Finals.- The Florida Panthers, stockpiling goaltenders, signed James Reimer (five years, $17 million) with Roberto Luongo and Reto Berra on the roster.- The Toronto Maple Leafs, who probably dreamed of bringing Stamkos back home, had to settle for signing winger Matt Martin (four years, $10 million) to perhaps play on their fourth line.- The Philadelphia Flyers signed forward Dale Weise (four years, $9.4 million) to address one of the teams needs.- The Minnesota Wild signed center Eric Staal (three years, $10.5 million) four years after making a splash by giving Zach Parise and Ryan Suter 13-year, $98 million contracts.---AP Hockey Writer John Wawrow and AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this story. Air Max 180 Australia .

After striking Ravindra Jadeja for two sixes, Campbell holed out to mid-on for a 59-ball 31.Five overs later, Hope was caught by Virat Kohli at leg slip and the Presidents XI were 70 for 3. However, Blackwood, who is part of West Indies Test squad for the India series, and Vishaul Singh expelled the Indians hopes of a win with a 62-run fourth-wicket partnership off 31 overs.Im fully confident, Blackwood said after play. The first innings [I] was looking to bat as long as possible, [I] have the feel of the bowlers. Now I know what they have to offer. I tried to pick the gap, not try to be as aggressivve as my normal self and changed my approach. Air Max 180 For Sale. . [Im] always going to be confident, even if I get one ball or make a hundred, Im still going to be the same Jermaine Blackwood.Vishaul was run-out for 39 and Blackwood was bowled by Ashwin for 51 off 143 balls, but Montcin Hodge and Rahkeem Cornwall added 39 for the sixth wicket. Cornwall was caught behind for 21 off Mohammed Shami but with an Indian win seeming unlikely, the game was drawn with 78 overs bowled in the day.Seamers Shami and Shardul Thakur bowled 11 and 12 overs respectively, while spinners Ashwin, Jadeja and Amit Mishra shared 43 overs among them.In both the (warm-up) games, pitches in St Kitts were slow, Thakur said after the game. We are expecting slower wickets in the Test matches. If there is a slow wicket the next time we play, it wont surprise us. We are ready for it. Doesnt matter what the pitch is - slow or fast. Effort matters. To put in that effort is my job.India begin their four-Test series against West Indies in North Sound, Antigua from July 21. NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
Daniil Kvyat feels his drive to 15th was the maximum he could have hoped for in Germany and two steps forward after his devastating end of qualifying a day earlier. Cheap Air Max 97 Sale .Kvyat looked a broken figure on Saturday after qualifying 19th at Hockenheim, saying his current career slump seemed never ending. The Russian driver has scored just two points since being demoted from Red Bull to Toro Rosso ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.On Sunday a solid drive saw him recover to 15th, one place behind teammate Carlos Sainz. That result came after receiving words of encouragement on the grid from both Red Bull consultant Helmut Marko and team boss Christian Horner.Speaking about his race, Kvyat said: I felt that many people who know me saw I was not myself these last few weeks, also Christian. I dont need anyone to be sorry for me or anything but I think everyone has these points in life. For sure, [qualifying] was a low point. But already I felt like I took not one but two steps forward.When asked if he felt he had got the best from the car, he replied: Exactly, I felt I got absolutely the maximum out of it. It was positive on that note. Nothing could have been done better today from outside, so its quite positive.Kvyay says the key to his positive drive was not dwelling too much on what had happened in qualifying and letting his racing instincts take over.[I did] nothing special, just went to the car and did my job, really not thinking about too much or over-analysing. Just did my usual job, just drove on my instincts and it paid off quite well. I think thats how we continue that approach for now, its been working good and it should be much better from the second half of the season. Nike Shox Gravity Uk .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Almaz Ayana of Ethiopia delivered a stunning start to track and field at the Olympics with a world record in the 10,000 meters Friday, wiping away the competition just after the halfway point and striding to victory with effortless grace. Nike Tn Nere .After crossing the finish line, she raised her hands in triumph and came to a stop, fully realizing what she had done: Her time of 29 minutes, 17.45, had shaved 14.33 seconds off the 1993 mark of Chinas Wang Junxia.At age 24, she beat the best from a previous generation. Kenyas Vivian Cheruiyot, 32, a four-time long- distance world champion came in second, a massive 15.18 seconds behind. Ayanas 31-year-old teammate Tirunesh Dibaba took bronze.It was a bittersweet moment for Dibaba, who had been trying to become the first woman to win three individual Olympic track titles in a row. She never stood a chance for victory but fought to get another medal for Ethiopia.Dibaba and Ayana held hands afterward -- a symbolic transition to a new era.If David Rudisha of Kenya provided an iconic moment four years ago in the London Olympics with his world record, it could be tough to find a better race in Rio, with nine more days to go.Fridays conditions were ideal -- cool and overcast with a damp track from a morning rain. But the 60,000- capacity Olympic stadium was only a quarter full to see Ayanas accomplishment.Even though Kenya and Ethiopia are fierce rivals, it was the early strength of Alice Nawuwona that made Ayanas record run easier. The Kenyan delivered her at ideal pace at the halfway point, and Ayana put in a short sprint to sap any confidence from her rivals.Steadily, the world record became a possibility. With each lap, Ayana built a massive cushion.In Rome this spring, Ayana came to within a second of the world mark in the 5,000 meters -- her favorite event -- and she could have a chance to make it a double world record Olympics.---Follow 1Raf Casert on Twitter at Air Max Plus Bianche . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. Scarpe Tn 2018 .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Queensland jockey Ryan Wiggins has been taken to hospital after a fall at the Sunshine Coast races.Wiggins was riding the favourite Puissance Decheval who went through the running rail at the 800m in the seventh race on WednesdayAmbulance officerrs attended to Wiggins on the track and then took him to Nambour Hospital with a suspected broken leg. Air Max Plus NereNFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys ' ' '

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Michael Fulmer watched Matt Boyd throw seven scoreless innings against Texas a night earlier.The Detroit rookie did his fellow starter two innings better, putting himself in the company of 2011 AL Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander.Fulmer pitched a four-hitter in the Tigers second straight shutout of the Rangers, and Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez homered among three hits apiece in a 7-0 victory Sunday.The 23-year-old right-hander became the first Tigers rookie to throw a shutout since Verlander 10 years ago. He retired 16 of the last 17 hitters he faced as Detroit kept the AL West-leading Rangers scoreless over the final 21 innings of the three-game series.The gem from Fulmer (10-3), whose longest previous outing was eight innings in a no-decision against Kansas City, came a day after the lefty Boyd, not far removed from rookie status himself, led a 2-0 victory against Texas ace left-hander Cole Hamels.What I learned was that they were an aggressive team against him, Fulmer, the AL rookie leader in wins, said after striking out nine -- two off his career best -- with no walks. I just looked to make quality pitches on 0-0 counts and early in the count and try to get grounders and weak pop-ups.Ian Kinsler added a solo shot against A.J. Griffin (5-2) after striking out his first three times against the Texas right-hander. Miguel Cabrera hit his team-leading 27th homer in the ninth.Fulmers streak of 13 straight retired ended with Nomar Mazaras single leading off the ninth. But Fulmer finished by getting the top of the Texas order -- Shin-Soo Choo, Ian Desmond and Carlos Beltran -- on his way to a career-high 112 pitches. All four Texas hits were singles.All I know is I feel good right now, said Fulmer, a 2011 first-round pick of the New York Mets who started the season at Triple-A Toledo. I could feel this good at 200 innings. Who knows? All I can do is control the present and keep pitching every fifth day.The best chance for Texas came in the fourth, when Desmond and Adrian Beltre singled around a flyout to the warning track in right by Beltran. Fulmer struck out Rougned Odor to end the threat.What was noticeable was the youung man on the mound, Texas manager Jeff Banister said. Ruben Loftus-Cheek England Jersey. He was able to do pretty much what he wanted to do.Victor Martinez started the scoring with a two-run shot in the fourth, and J.D. Martinez hit his 100th career homer to knock out Griffin and give the Tigers a 6-0 lead in the seventh.Griffin allowed 11 hits and six runs with eight strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings, his second-longest outing of the season. He gave up at least one homer for the 10th straight game, the longest single-season streak for the Rangers since reliever Joaquin Benoit in 2003.FULMER BITSThe righty became the 11th Detroit rookie with 100 strikeouts in a season, finishing the game with 103. The most recent was Armando Galarraga, who had 126 in 2008. ... He joined Philadelphias Zach Eflin (July 22 at Pittsburgh) as the only rookies with shutouts this season. ... Hes the first AL pitcher this season with six outings of at least six scoreless innings.SHORT HOPSOn Saturday, Hamels gave up two runs on 14 hits, which was a career high and tied the Texas record. According to the Rangers, hes the first pitcher to allow 14 or more hits and two or fewer runs since John Dopson for Montreal in July 1988. ... Cabreras home run was the 435th of his career, moving him past Juan Gonzalez and Andruw Jones into 44th on the homer list.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: Manager Brad Ausmus said there is hope that CF Cameron Maybin (sprained left thumb) can start swinging a bat late in the upcoming seven-game homestand.

Theres a generation of South Africans whose memories of watching their Test team play in Australia are the complete opposite of Faf du Plessis and his teams. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Triple Black . Generation now. Anyone 10 or younger has never known a South African side that has lost a Test series in Australia and to have added a layer to that legacy is this teams greatest joy.We know how hard it is. We watched on TV for so many years how hard it was to was for South Africa to come here and do well, du Plessis said. I suppose the younger guys looking from back home can see that its possible to come here and to an extent and dominate an Australian team. It is extremely special for us. Its something we will remember as a team. Thats exactly what we came here to do, we want to create memories together.Not since the West Indies between 1984 and 1992 has a team won three successive series in Australia but that is not the only thing that stands out about this South African victory. It is that they did it without the two players who have been stalwarts for a decade - AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn who are both injured - and Morne Morkel about whom there are concerns about match fitness. Also Hashim Amla, the leader of the batting line-up, contributed only 48 runs across three innings.It has taken a total team effort, something du Plessis has lauded. This team has been very close to exceptional, he said. There havent been many things weve done wrong. We have been consistent in the way we perform. We are not relying on one or two players. All XI are putting our hands up at different times and thats what you want from your team.Australia were warned of South Africas ability to spread the load last month in the ODI series. Albeit in a different format, in different conditions, South Africas 5-0 victory did provide the springboard for this series. We came across here with a lot of confidence, du Plessis said.Self-belief helped South Africa bounce back from a poor first day in Perth to take 10 for 86 and set themselves up for victory there. It also propelled them to pluck Australia for 85 in the first innings in Hobart. The twin collapses showed South Africa that Australia had weaknesses they could exploit, especially if they targetted their senior players.When you are a team thats under the pump and under pressure and not playing as well as you like, confidence will fade away, du Plessis said. Its hard to fake it. We didnt give them the opportunity to do it [assert themselves over a long period of time]. It was important to keep the important guys in the team quiet - David Warner and Steve Smith. If you can put a lot of pressure on them, the younger guys wont have that same punch. We made sure those guys have been relatively quiet in the series. Even guys like [Mitchell] Starc, he bowled well in that one spell but if you are on top, thats when you get a five-for and you clean the tail up. We were just really good in making sure we stopped that. On the other hand, once South Africa got an opening, they were unstoppable. It took just 95 minutes for them to finish Australia off on the fourth morning. Du Plessis did not expect the series win to come so quickly, although he suspected victory was inevitable after the pressure his bowlers piled on late on the third day. I didnt expect it to happen that quickly, du Plessis said. Yesterday, our bowling was exceptional. The last hour and a half, we were so good in our areas and relentless. We didnt get the results we wanted but we knew today if we came back, it would change for us. This is one of those sessions we will always remember as a team, that won us the series and it was unbelievable.It was unbelievable because it was more dominant than a South African side has ever been in Australia. Four years ago, South Africa battled through the first two drawn Tests and then won the third. Eight years ago, they won the first two Tests and lost the third. This time, du Plessis wants to take everything South Africa can from this trip, which means a win in their first day-night Test in Adelaide.That is the mission for us now, he said. We want to do that very badly. We wont rest on our laurels and be happy with 2-1 or even 2-0. Weve got Australia in a position where they are under pressure and we dont want to let that go. Its hard enough to get them in this position so we will do everything we can to make it 3-0.What memories that will make. Air Max 97 Triple Black Mens .

TORONTO -- Brad Marchand scored a short-handed goal with 43. Brayden McNabb Jersey .1 seconds left and Canada beat Team Europe 2-1 on Thursday night to win the World Cup of Hockey.Its the biggest stage in the world right now and its an incredible honor, Marchand said.The Canadians won the best-of-three finals 2-0.Patrice Bergeron tied it with a power-play goal with 2:53 left in the third, and Marchand won it with a shot from the slot.Europe seemed as if it had a chance to score late when Drew Doughty was called for high-sticking with just under 2 minutes left, but Canada was the team that took advantage when Marchand got the puck into open space and beat Jaroslav Halak with a shot to win the first World Cup since 2004.Its just crazy the way everything worked out, said Sidney Crosby, selected the MVP of the tournament after scoring three goals and finishing with a World Cup-high 10 points. When you get a penalty that late in the game, youre just trying to force overtime.Canada has won 16 straight games, including Olympic gold medals at the Sochi and Vancouver Games, since losing to the U.S. in the 2010 Olympics.Its pretty special, Crosby said. Its not easy to do and for a good chunk of us, a lot of us were there in Russia.Carey Price made 32 saves for the Canadians, who started slow before ending the tournament with a furious rally that fired up a once-quiet crowd.Zdeno Chara scored early for Europe, and Halak made 32 saves for the eight-nation team.After getting that award, he was presented with a silver World Cup of Hockey trophy and he skated with it around the ice just months after hosting the Stanley Cup for the second time in his career.He set up the tying goal, passing the puck off the boards to Brent Burns, whose shot just inside the blue line was redirected by Bergerons raised stick.Crosby was stewing after each of the first two periods.When the game was over, he was sporting an ear-to-ear smile.The Canadians closed the game in impressive fashion after a lackluster start.In front of an unenthusiastic crowd and a lot of empty seats in the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Canadians started flat and the Europeans made them pay for their apparent apathy.Unlike the last two times Canada trailed briefly to the U.S. and Russia, it could not come back against Europe quickly.It looked as if it wasnt going to be Canadas night when John Tavares had a wide-open net to shoot into, but hit the right post from the bottom of the right circle. Earlier in the same shift, the New York Islanders forward missed the net on a one-timer opportunity.Canada averaged 4.4 goals over the first five games of the tournament, giving Price plenty of support. It didnt score as much in the final game of the tournament, but two goals were enough to win thanks to Price.Chara, a Slovak and Boston Bruins defenseman, scored from the left circle with a wrist shot through traffic two teammates created in front of the net off a short, soft pass from Andrej Sekera in the slot.Crosby was part of a scrum at the end of the first period in which his helmet was knocked off near Europes net at the end of the first period. After the horn sounded to end the second, Crosby lingered on the ice to shot at Swiss defenseman Roman Josi.Crosby was clearly frustrated, playing with a pair of Bruins, Marchand and Bergeron, who had combined for 22 points through the first five games.Europe outshot the Canadians 12-8 after the first period and 27-21 after the second.The Canadians had three power plays over the first two periods and failed to take advantage, falling to 2 for 17 with an extra skater. On one of their power plays, they needed Price to make stops on breakaways.Canada had a man advantage again early in the third period, but only got one shot on Halak, a Slovak and Islanders standout, on the possibly pivotal power play.Crosby had a chance to score with 7-plus minutes left, but Halak kicked the shot away with his right skate.In the end, Halak could not keep the puck out of his net twice.The way it turned out at the end is very painful, Europe coach Ralph Krueger said. But you need to open eye to big picture and the journey. How we played was amazing. They played their hearts out. ... We beat the odds and we turned this into a hell of final, which nobody expected.---Follow Larry Lage at and follow his work at James Neal Jersey .

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Kendrys Morales busted out of his power drought in a big way. Morales homered twice and tied a career high with six RBIs to lead the Seattle Mariners past the Texas Rangers 9-2 on Tuesday night. The switch-hitting Morales, who has been hampered by a sore back, hit .235 with one home run in 25 June games before jumping on the Rangers for the 10th multihomer game of his career. "He lost his stroke there a little bit," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "I think its because he has been trying to do too much. But hes a good hitter who can do a lot of damage." Morales had a solo home run in the first and a three-run shot in the fifth off rookie Justin Grimm. Seattles designated hitter added a two-run single in the sixth to help the Mariners win for the first time at Texas this season. "I worked in the cage the last three or four days to make adjustments to feel more comfortable," Morales said through a translator. "I want to take an aggressive approach every time. Thats what it takes to be a winner." Joe Saunders (6-8) won for the first time in eight regular-season starts at Rangers Ballpark. The left-hander allowed two runs -- one earned -- and struck out five in 6 2-3 innings. Raul Ibanez, who hit 10 homers in June, had a solo shot for his 20th of the season as the Mariners opened a six-game road trip. The Mariners had 13 hits and scored their most runs since beating San Diego 9-0 on May 27. "I think the whole team swung the bats well," Ibanez said. "Even the outs that were made were good swings. It was a good collective effort." Grimm (7-6) gave up six runs and seven hits in four innings. He was chased in favour of Ross Wolf after Morales hit his second homer. The 24-year-old Grimm gave up a career-high three home runs and has a 9.31 ERA over his last six starts. "When talking about youth on the mound, youre going to get inconsistency," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "We have to get past the inconsistency." Grimm retired the first two batters of the game before Ibanez lined a 2-1 pitch over the fence in the right. Three pitches later, Morales followed with a solo drive to make it 2-0. "Their big bats in the order didnt misss," Washington said. Golden Knights Jerseys For Sale. Texas Leonys Martin dropped down a bunt single leading off the third to extend his hitting streak to 15 games, the longest active run in the majors. Martin scored two batters later on Elvis Andrus single. After Dustin Ackley had a run-scoring double in the fourth to push the lead to 3-1, the Mariners scored three runs in the fifth. Nick Franklin led off with a single and Ibanez reached on Ian Kinslers error at second base to set the stage for Morales. He hit the first pitch from Grimm into the seats in right, extending Seattles lead to 6-1. It was Morales first multihomer game since last Aug. 8 against Oakland. Morales, who went 3 for 5, capped his big game with a two-run single in the sixth to make it 8-1. It was the fourth time he had six RBIs in a game. He last drove in six on July 30, 2012, against Texas. Saunders, who won the 2012 AL wild-card game at Rangers Ballpark with Baltimore, came in 0-7 with a 9.91 ERA in the regular season at Texas. The left-hander was coming off his shortest start of the season when he allowed six runs in 1 2-3 innings June 25 against Pittsburgh. "This place has torn me up a few times," Saunders said. "Everybody knows they can hit the ball. I wanted to work down in the zone and try to get ahead, something I havent been doing, and throw strikes." Saunders got double-play grounders to end the fifth and sixth. After he recorded the first two outs of the seventh, Andrus and Nelson Cruz had consecutive singles to chase Saunders.

There will be over 360 hopefuls aiming for the crown and a qualifying spot at the Capcom Cup.The Wests elite ... and underdogsThe largest presence at the tournament will come from the players out of the Western hemisphere. North America will provide plenty of strength in the shape of Evil Geniuses Justin Wong, Kenneth KBrad Bradley, Eduardo PRRog Perez-Frangie and Ricki Ortiz. In addition to arguably the best North American fighting game team, Team Liquids Du NuckleDu Dang, Flipsid3s Antwan Alucard Ortiz, Evil Bizz Chris Tatarian, Echo Fox Julio Fuentes, and Circa eSports Long LPN Nguyen. Each of these players have top eight experience at major tournaments and should be the favorites for long tournament runs.Because the majority of the tournament competitors will be from North America, there will be plenty of dark horses within its ranks. Some of the surprise players that could do very well this weekend will be Jesse CommanderJesse Espinoza, Antonio Kusanagi Medrano, Jason Jaycetheace Nghe, and Kenneth Pope.The dark horses may even do better than the proposed top contenders, since there is a lot of parity within the ranks of the Wests best players. Outside of the likes of NuckleDu and Justin Wong, my picks to shake up the tournament foundation will be Pope, Kusanagi, and Jaycetheace.The international powerhousesIt goes without saying that the front-runners to take down SoCal Regionals are not from Southern California. There will be representation from China, Japan, South Korea and even Taiwan and all the players should be massive favorites regardless of the opposition.From Japan, the leader of the pack is Evil Geniuses Yusuke Momochi Momochi. Hes been the king of the region outside of Hajime Tokido Taniguchi and will come with plenty of momentum. Hes the clear-cut number one player, potentially, in the world for Street Fighter V and will want to wipe away his back-to-back second place finishes from memory with a victory in Southern California. After Momochi, Kenryo Mago Hayashi and Hail Marys finest Hiroyuki Eita Nagata and Goichi Go1 Kishida represent the best of the group.Outside of Japan, the list of killers and challengers does not end. First, the two best players that could contend with Momochi are Zowies Bruce Gamerbee Hsiang of Taiwan and Qanbas Zhuojun Xiao Hai Zeng. Gamerbee was one of the hottest players before taking a small break and could continue his ridiculous roll at the expense of tournament field. As for Xiao Hai, the best player from China, he could shut down all of his critics with a towering victory in SoCal Regionals and truly compete for the title of the worlds best. In addition, there will be strong names such as Li-Wei Oil King Lin and Team Secrets South Korean representative Lee Poongko Chung Gon.Overall, the field of players will be one of the finest representation of the games strongest. My picks to take it all will be chalky -- Momochi, Gamerbee, and Xiao Hai present the best chance to win. On Oct. 16, the winner will make a strong statement to the world of Street Fighter V in the run up to the Capcom Cup, and drum up some powerful momentum for the seasons grand finale. Nike Air Max Flair Ultramarine .

DALLAS -- Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Baylor officials are scheduled to meet with the leagues board of directors Tuesday to present their plans to address the sexual assault scandal that rocked the university this summer. Wholesale Belgium Jerseys .Bowlsby, speaking Monday at the opening of Big 12 media days, said Baylor officials have declined to release the full Pepper Hamilton report to the conference. He said Big 12 officials have had access to only a summary of the report and findings of fact that Baylor officials released to media and the public in late May.Our board has asked for a full accounting from Baylor University relative to the sexual assaults and their universitys response to that situation, Bowlsby said. I think its fair to say that theyre deeply concerned about the associational elements of this. ... From a purely athletic standpoint, we also have to be satisfied that there havent been Big 12 rules broken and there havent been NCAA rules violated. That is the essence of our process, and its very early in the process right now.On June 22, the Big 12 issued a public statement demanding specifics of Baylors sexual assault investigations, including the full Pepper Hamilton report, and made a point of noting that this was the second time the conference had to ask. The first request was a letter to then-president Kenneth Starr on May 24, two days before the university publicly released the law firms report summary and announced the fates of Starr, athletic director Ian McCaw and football coach Art Briles.This time, Baylor responded. There was an in-person meeting June 23 between Bowlsby and Baylor officials, including interim president David Garland and board of regents chairman Ronald Murff. They gave Bowlsby no documents, no details of the investigation, none of the names involved in the alleged assaults and none of the material the conference originally requested, but they did give him an explanation.I thought all of them were very forthright, Bowlsby told ESPN last week. They are in the middle of ... a number of potential civil actions, and on the advice of counsel, they are not sharing everything they have. At least not right now.Garland told ESPN last week that Baylor officials met with NCAA enforcement staff earlier this summer to address what was included in the Pepper Hamilton report. He said the university hasnt been contacted by the NCAA since the initial meeting.Garland, Murff and Baylor regent David Harper are scheduled to address the Big 12 board of directors Tuesday, according to Bowlsby.Bowlsby said the Big 12 board of directors executive committee -- Oklahoma president David Boren, Texas president Gregory Fenves and Kansas chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little -- decided to go public with the news that they were demanding information from Baylor and that the school wasnt complying.I think that there are certainly those among our board that have felt that the image of the Big 12 and the other members of the Big 12 have been sullied as a result of this incident, Bowlsby said. Its gotten a lot of publicity, obviously, so thats the reason the board took the steps they took.Bowlsby said the Big 12s goal is to erase sexual assault at its institutions.We are very committed as a group of 10 schools to eradicating sexual assault on our campuses, he said. It almost goes without saying that when you combine alcohol and drugs and raging hormones and the experiences of 18-22 years old, its probably unrealistic to think that these kinds of things are never going to happen. But we certainly want to make sure that from the center we do everything we can to ensure that they are minimized, if not eradicated.Bowlsbys comment, however, has been ridiculed on social media as being too accepting of any sexual assaults taking place on college campuses.Later on Monday, Bowlsby was asked to clarify his comments about sexual assaults on college campuses.Ive only worked on campus for 35 years, Bowlsby said. Thats not blaming anybody. Thats just the reality of it on a college campus. Its not right, but thats what goes on. Thats what every Thursday, Friday, Saturday night is. Im not sure what else to say. I wasnt being flippant about it. I dont think it mitigates it.It should never happen and we should do everything we can to eradicate it. But if you put 25,000 18- to 22-year-olds on a campus together and mix in any of those other things, there are going to be people that make bad decisions. Im not talking about victims or survivors or perpetrators. Thats just what happens. Im really not trying to be crass about it. I just know thats the environment thats on campus.Three federal Title IX lawsuits involving sexual assaults are pending against Baylor, and they represent claims by eight women, including two who said they were assaulted by Bears football players.I came away with enhanced confidence that David Garland was very intent upon doing the right things and leading the university out of a dark chapter and that the board [of regents] was similarly committed, Bowlsby told ESPN. Having said that, this is a very long process and it has many steps to it, not the least of which are all the things that the Pepper Hamilton report details need to be done, and some of them are pretty big projects. But saying it and doing it are two different things.How long the conference waits depends on the patience of the board of directors, which is composed of the presidents of the member schools, including Baylor. Bowlsby said they realize this is a long process, but I dont think theyre going to wait forever, regardless of where Baylor is with its various lawsuits.Bowlsby said Baylor is aware that there could be repercussions for not turning over the information, although he wouldnt say what those might be. The conference, which distributes about $25 million to each of its member institutions, doesnt have specific bylaws that address this, he said, adding that the board has a wide array of options if and when the time comes.Its also unclear what would happen if the conference received the information and then determined that Baylor had violated bylaws regarding compliance with Title IX and unfair competition, because the league doesnt have the power to impose the same sort of punishment as the NCAA. Bowlsby didnt rule it out, though.If its determined they werent in compliance [with Title IX], theres a provision in our bylaws that says they have to be in compliance but it doesnt apply a specific remedy for that, Bowlsby said. So the board would have to get back together once that finding is finalized and determined what, if any, penalty or sanction there might be at the conference level.Belgium Jan Vertonghen World Cup Jersey .
