e Boston dugout.SPIRIT OF CESPEDESWhile Yoenis Cespedes wasnt at Comerica Park on Friday night, from jj009's blog

After seeing Moto GP legend Valentino Rossi copy him on the Misano podium last week, Daniel Ricciardo will reserve his shoey celebration for his next Formula One victory -- something he hopes will be in Singapore this weekend. China Jerseys .After securing a podium at Julys German Grand Prix, Ricciardo drank champagne from his shoe, something he made fellow Australian and former Red Bull driver Mark Webber copy after he conducted podium interviews in Belgium. The celebration mimicked Australian rider Jack Miller, who did it after his maiden MotoGP win at Assen earlier this season.Last weekend Rossi did the same celebration after finishing second in Italy, but Ricciardo thinks it is best saved for wins.In Singapores Thursday press conference Ricciardo was asked if we will see the shoey again this weekend in Singapore, where Red Bull is expected to challenge for victory, and replied: If I win, yeah. If its just a second or third, probably not now. If its a victory I expect to see a few people up there doing it with me!Ricciardo also explained the origin of the celebration, which he said came from Australian surfing/fishing group The Mad Hueys.Its just a bit of a laugh. I know Jack Miller knows a few of the guys from The Mad Hueys, so when he got his win in Assen I suspected he was going to do it and he did, so I thought I would keep the Australian tradition going!And now Valentinos got into the mix! I saw he Instagrammed it yesterday, he said everyone loves a shoey and then he said delicious and all that, a few words Ive used for it -- I think its just a bit of fun now, everyones enjoying it.When Valtteri Bottas, who was sat next to him in the press conference, asked him how a shoey tasted, Ricciardo smiled and said: Honestly if the sparkling wine is cold then its good, normally it is on the podium. If its warm then usually you get the sweat and that through it! But the cold taste kills the bad stuff!Laughing again, Ricciardo said: So its delicious, as I said! China NFL Jerseys .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. NFL Jerseys Supply . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. http://www.wholesalenfljerseyssupplycheap.com/ .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers and their fans waited six seasons for Rick Porcello to have the breakout year they believed was his destiny.On Friday night, they finally got to see it.Porcello, pitching for the first time at Comerica Park as a member of the Red Sox, allowed two runs in seven innings as Boston beat Detroit 10-2.It was fun. Honestly, Porcello said in his usual low-key way. I think it helped that I pitched against those guys at Fenway last year and we came here last year, even though I didnt pitch. It was still weird being on the opposite side, though.Porcello is 17-3 with a 3.22 ERA, which no one appreciates more than his teammates.We gave him four runs in the first inning, and then he just did what he has done for us all year, said Hanley Ramirez, who drove in four runs. When we need a win, we know hes going to get us one. We had a tough loss yesterday, and he came out and shut them down.Porcello appreciated the early help, as both David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit two-run homers off Michael Fulmer in the first inning.Thats huge, especially against a guy who has been pitching as well as Michael, Porcello said. Its always easier to pitch with a cushion, especially against that offense.Porcello allowed four hits and two walks while striking out eight. His only major mistake was J.D. Martinezs two-run homer in the second inning.It looked like he had a little extra power on the fastball tonight, and Im sure some of that was being back here, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. You are always going to be pumped up when you go back to a place where you played for a long time.The Tigers have lost nine of 12 after winning 10 of 11.It is a roller coaster, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Ive gone through this every year of my career -- 25 years now. You have ups and downs.Fulmers Rookie of the Year campaign hit a snag, as the Red Sox got a career-high six runs off him in 5 2/3 innings. Fulmer (10-4) allowed 10 hits, including two homers, and walked one while striking out one.They are a fastball-hitting team, and they were ready for my fastball, Fulmer said. It felt like every time I went inside, they were on it.According to Bradley, that was indeed Bostons plan.Hes a very good pitcher who is very aggressive, he said. We wanted to attack him right away.Ortiz gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the first wiith his 22nd career homer at Comerica Park -- a blast deep into the stands in right field. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys. Ortiz has hit more homers in Detroit than in any other ballpark outside the AL East.Bradley gave Boston a four-run lead with the second two-run homer of the first inning, but Martinez pulled the Tigers within 4-2 with his two-run shot.Both pitchers settled down after that, and the score didnt change until the sixth. Fulmer retired the first two hitters, but base hits by Sandy Leon and Brock Holt put runners on first and second. Andrew Benintendi and Dustin Pedroia followed with RBI singles to knock Fulmer out of the game.Ramirezs two-run double off Bruce Rondon made it 8-2 in the seventh, and he added another two-run double in the eighth off Mark Lowe.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) threw in the bullpen Friday and remains on pace to start Sundays series finale. ... RHP Steven Wright (shoulder) is expected to miss at least one more start, but could start throwing off a mound this weekend.Tigers: RHP Mike Pelfrey (back) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session before the game, and is scheduled to throw another on Sunday. He would then progress to a simulated game before reporting to the minors for rehab games.MARTINEZ LOCKED INJ.D. Martinez hit a long home run in his first at-bat, but his second one might have been even more impressive. He hit a line drive to the left side that ripped the webbing out of shortstop Xander Bogaerts glove on its way to the outfield. Bogaerts had to call time to get a new glove from the Boston dugout.SPIRIT OF CESPEDESWhile Yoenis Cespedes wasnt at Comerica Park on Friday night, he certainly had a major impact on the game. Before the 2015 season, the Tigers traded Porcello to the Red Sox for Cespedes, then shipped him to the Mets at the trading deadline for Fulmer.Both trades were made by then-Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski, who was back in town Friday in his new role as Red Sox president.UP NEXTThe teams play the third game in their four-game series Saturday night with Bostons Drew Pomeranz (9-9, 2.99) facing Daniel Norris (1-1, 3.47). Norris is 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA in two career outings against Boston, one of which was a start. ' ' '
