I opened the batting with Bill Lawry when he scored 282 not out for Northcote against Essendon to win the 1965-66 Victoria Cricket Association Premiership final. Joey Ivie Jersey .I was a 22-year-old in my fourth year of grade cricket. Bill had just come off a hundred at the MCG against England that helped Australia retain the Ashes.He batted for 509 minutes and faced 454 balls. It was a two-innings match, supposed to be played over two weekends. But the rules were that if there was no chance of getting both innings in, the match would be decided on whoever scored the most runs in their first innings. The first innings had to be played to a finish, though.It took three weekends to finish this game. Essendon scored 514 for 9 declared, batting first. Thats a lot of runs, someone said in our dressing room, after wed come off. Bill didnt think it was enough, though. The wicket was good and he couldnt understand why theyd declared. This is a grand final, he told everyone.Earlier in the season, he had made a duck against Essendon. Hes got a memory like an elephant, forgets nothing, and was determined to make up for this rare failure. Straightaway he started accumulating runs. Nothing flash, just like he was playing in a Test match.Thats what stood out about Bill. He played club cricket just as seriously and carefully as if he was playing for Australia.I was dropped at third slip first ball, but was still there at the close of play. We had 98 by then. Bill said that if I didnt get out in the first hour the next day, wed win the game. He also told me not to play back to their legspinner. The next day, just after the hour, I played back to the legspinner and was out lbw.Bill didnt give a single chance in his 282, in almost two and a half days of batting. It was the same whenever he batted. Never looked like getting out. Bill saw the ball much earlier than the rest of us, and at club level didnt appear to have any weaknesses. He judged the ball perfectly outside off stump. Even when the opposition had their state players, Bill dominated, simply by having complete mastery of his game.Playing with someone that good inspired you to play better yourself. Our middle-order batsman Tom Ryan was a bit of a hitter, but for the final, Bill just said to him. Cut that out today. Tom scored 82 and put on nearly 200 with Bill.As a captain, Bill was a hard taskmaster, but people listened to him. He dropped me to No. 11 for one game because I questioned one of his decisions.The final against Essendon was played at the Albert Ground in Melbourne, the Melbourne Cricket Clubs second ground. Id never seen it so full. As Bill closed in on the target, there was a 70-metre queue outside to get in.

Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants first regular-season loss under Ben McAdoo looked like many of the crushing defeats from their last year under Tom Coughlin.In falling 29-27 to the Redskins on Sunday, the Giants (2-1) blew a late lead, turned over the ball three times, had dumb penalties, and sustained a couple of injuries that are going to leave them short-handed heading to Minnesota next Monday night.While Odell Beckham Jr. was OK on the field in his matchup with cornerback Josh Norman, the receiver had meltdowns on the sideline that McAdoo said were a distraction. He said he talked to Beckham twice during the game.No one in the locker room was pleased afterward, McAdoo said Monday in assessing the teams mood. We knew that we were our own worst enemy yesterday.The biggest injury was a season-ending torn triceps sustained by running back Shane Vereen . He started against Washington with Rashad Jennings nursing a thumb injury. Vereen has been their third-down back, with his 59 catches last season second on the team.Shane is a tremendous football player and our thoughts go to him with that tough injury, McAdoo said. I feel for the player. Hes a good football player. We wish him a speedy recovery.McAdoo did not know when Vereen was hurt, but he believes he played with the injury for a significant amount of time.McAdoo said it was too early to say if Jennings can play this week. Orleans Darkwa ran for 53 yards on 10 carries as the backup. Rookie Paul Perkins and Bobby Rainey will have to take on bigger roles if Jennings misses the next game. Charvarius Ward Jersey. ew York also had cornerbacks Eli Apple (hamstring) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie hurt, leaving them uncertain for the Vikings. McAdoo said the Giants will decide whether they need to sign another cornerback.Rookie safety Darian Thompson also had his foot examined Monday and he will not need surgery. He will have to wear a walking boot for now.Beckham finished with seven receptions for 121 yards. He showed some emotion on the field after making two consecutive catches against Norman in the fourth quarter, but he seemed agitated at times on the sideline.He needs to control his emotions better and become less of a distraction to himself and to his teammates, McAdoo said. Its our job to help him with that process and maturing.The Giants cant afford another effort like that this week. Worst was 11 penalties for 128 yards, including five 15-yarders.Defensive end Olivier Vernon was called for a hit to the helmet on the Redskins winning-drive.We were sloppy with our play, McAdoo said. Our discipline and poise wasnt there like it was in the first two weeks. Its something that we addressed in the locker room after. We have to continue to address it and work on it. Get back to the team that we were the first two weeks of the season as far as the penalties go,---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '  
GOLD COAST, Australia -- Jarryd Hayne made his return from a stint in the NFL and showed flashes of his past exploits in the National Rugby League, but couldnt prevent his new team Gold Coast from losing to the New Zealand Warriors in a key match Sunday. Fred Brown Jersey .The Warriors won 24-14, moving ahead of the Titans into seventh place in the race for a top-eight playoff spot.Hayne, who left the San Francisco 49ers and unsuccessfully tried out for Fijis Olympic rugby sevens squad, signed with the Titans on Wednesday. He came on in the 28th minute to sustained applause from a sellout crowd of 25,000; double the average attendance this season.The TV broadcasters also embraced Haynes return, offering a Hayne Cam in which one half of a split screen featured only Hayne.He made an impact on his first play as a Titan, tackling Warriors backrower Bodene Thompson when Thompson seemed destined to score. Hayne then outjumped two Warriors players to take a high kick at the other end of the field, his efforts nearly ending in a try for his new team.Early in the second half, Hayne drove Warriors star Johnson onto his back in a big one-on-one tackle, the Kiwi international fumbling the ball from the impact.Hayne finished the game with a try assist, his 20-meter grubber kick resulting in the final try of the match to winger Anthony Don.He said match fitness was the biggest issue.Just the minutes in the legs, thats something you really cant get at training because of the contact, and how ferocious it is out there on the field, Hayne said. Ive played in a lot of big games where mentally its got me through it. It wasnt anything I didnt expect or couldnt handle.In mid-May, Hayne announced his retirement from the 49ers in order to push for selection in the Fiji rugby sevens team for Rio.The 28-year-old Hayne surprisingly made the initial 53-man roster out of training camp as a rookie running back last year with San Francisco. Playing eight games with one start, he had 17 carries for 52 yards and six catches for 27 yards while also returning eight punts for 76 yards.His rugby sevens career turned out to be even shorter. Hayne struggled to adapt to the pace and fitness demands of sevens -- a modified version of traditional rugby in which teams play several matches in tournaments that last two to three days.Hayne began his NRL career in 2006, and scored 103 tries in 176 matches for the Parramatta Eels, the only NRL team he had played for before signing with the Titans.In the only other match Sunday, the Wests Tigers beat defending champions North Queensland 26-14.The weekend results left Melbourne in first place with 38 points, one ahead of the Cronulla Sharks. Canberra is in third place with 31 points, followed by the Canterbury Bulldogs with 30.

SEATTLE -- After an inconsistent first two years in and out of Seattles rotation, 24-year-old top prospect Taijuan Walker was finally being relied upon to be a big part of the Mariners success this season. Neiko Thorpe Jersey .Because of a nagging foot injury, Walker has been unable to live up to expectations again.Walker returns from a month-long stint on the disabled list hoping to pitch through the pain and get through another frustrating season. Hes due back on the mound Saturday night, when the Mariners host a Los Angeles Angels team that knows all about injured starting pitchers.Angels starter Tyler Skaggs returned from Tommy John surgery late last month and has already put together two scoreless outings in his first action since July 2014. Skaggs (1-0) brings a scoreless streak of 18 1/3 innings, dating back to the 2014 season, into Saturdays start.The Angels could use his arm in the rotation as they try to bounce back from losing consecutive games for the first time since a three-game sweep in Houston from July 22-24. The Angels have provided plenty of offense in recent games, but havent had the pitching to back it up.Veteran Tim Lincecum was the latest starter to struggle as he gave up six first-inning runs in a 6-4 loss to the Mariners on Friday night.It seemed to happen pretty fast, Lincecum said.Seattle (55-53) has its own set of problems and hopes that some rotation stability will be enough to get the Mariners back into the postseason hunt. Walker (4-7) is the latest pitcher to return to a rotation that has already had 11 different starters this season.Ace Felix Hernandez returned from the disabled list two weeks ago but has struggled to find consistency. He turned in his best outing Friday night, when he bounced back from a rough first inning to pitch eight strong innings.That game saw catcher Mike Zunino hit his sixth home run in only 41 at-bats since being recalled from Triple-A, where hed been working on his swing after two disappointing seasons as the Mariners everyday catcher.

That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected.Trainer Michael Bell is confident Big Orange will run a massive race in Tuesdays Melbourne Cup after faring well in the all-important barrier draw. The dual Goodwood Cup hero finished fifth in the Flemington showpiece last year from stall 23 and the Newmarket handler admitted to being thrilled after receiving a far more favourable starting berth this time around in stall seven.He said: Were absolutely delighted. Its obviously a much better position than last year and we think the horse is in better shape than he was 12 months ago.Its got to be a positive weve drawn a low number when you consider how well he ran from a wide draw last year and were very much looking forward to the race.We just need the rain stay away - the track is riding quick today which would have suited him - and Im sure hell run a massive race.There were mixed results for British and Irish challengers overall.Charlie Applebys Oceanographer, who confirmed his place in the 24-strong field with a last-gasp victory in the Lexus Stakes earlier in the day, will break from stall 11, with Geelong Cup-winning stable companion Qewy in sstall 15.

DETROIT -- With their playoff hopes fading fast, the Kansas City Royals showed some fight. Justin Bethel Jersey .Paulo Orlando hit a tying, two-run double and Eric Hosmer followed with a three-run homer against Francisco Rodriguez, capping a ninth-inning comeback that led the Royals over the Detroit Tigers 7-4 Saturday.Kansas City stopped a four-game losing streak, and its tragic number for elimination from postseason contention remained at three. The Royals would be the fourth straight World Series champion failing to reach the playoffs after winning a title the previous season.We want to finish strong, no matter where we are in the standings said Hosmer, who was hitless in four at-bats, including three strikeouts, before the home run. We have to be professional about what were doing and continue to play it through.Given a 4-2 lead, Rodriguez (3-4) allowed singles to Alex Gordon and Hunter Dozier before Orlandos double. Cheslor Cuthbert walked and Hosmer hit his 24th homer.We put together a lot of good at-bats, Hosmer said. I was just trying to get a good pitch to hit and not miss it.Wade Davis (2-1) pitched a one-hit eighth and Kelvin Herrera, Kansas Citys seventh pitcher, got three straight outs for his 12th save in 15 chances, ending a game that took 3 hours, 50 minutes. Rodriguez blew a save for the fifth time in 49 opportunities.Detroits five-game winning streak was stopped, and the Tigers dropped a half-game behind Baltimore for the second AL wild card berth.Its a bad position to fail the way that I failed, Rodriguez said. Just unacceptable. This one hurts, big time. I let my team down.Royals starter Yordano Ventura, 7-0 against Detroit in his career, allowed three runs and 10 hits in four innings, then left with back tightness. Kansas City said he is day to day.Tigers starter Daniel Norris, who was in line for his first career victory over the Royals, gave up two runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.Alcides Escobar hit a sacrifice fly in the second, but the Tigers went ahead 3-1 on third-inning RBI singles by Cameron Maybin and J.D. Martinez, and Maybins RBI single in the fourth.Kendrys Morales homered leading off the sixth, becoming Kansas Citys first player to reach 30 since Jermaine Dye hit 33 in 2000. Martinezs RBI single gave Detroit a 4-2 lead in the sixth.Give them credit for coming back against one of the best closers in the American League, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.FREE PASSTigers slugger Miguel Cabrera drew an intentional walk in the fourth inning, his 14th of the season.

Western Bulldogs forward Clay Smith reckons hes starting to move on from the dark moments that accompanied his wretched injury run.After three knee reconstructions, he still finds it hard to believe hes back on the field at the pointy end of the AFL season.The 23-year-old returned to the Bulldogs side in round 15 and has since played 10 consecutive games, something he last achieved in 2013.And his hard-edged performance in the Dogs thumping elimination final win over West Coast suggests hes as ready as anyone for Fridays semi-final against Hawthorn at the MCG.Smith finished Thursdays game at Domain Stadium with nine tackles and left several Eagles feeling the effect of bruising collisions.Thats just the way Ive grown up playing footy, Smith says of his physical approach.I think youve just got to play to your strengths and bring what you do for the team. Thats one of the areas I think I help the team out.If I can put my body in there and crash around and knock a few blokes over then thats what Im going to do.Smith has forged an imporrtant role as a defensive forward since his return from injury but admits he wasnt initially sure whether his problematic knees would hold up. Stanley Jean-Baptiste Jersey. It was probably that three or four-game mark where I got nervous because thats where the other ones have gone, he said.Once I got through that its just been really good and really enjoyable to be out there every week and feel normal.I suppose its just a learning curve. Its something that you can learn from and become a stronger person from.The Bulldogs trained in wet conditions at Whitten Oval on Tuesday and Smith said spirits were high following the win over the Eagles and the return of Tom Liberatore, Easton Wood, Jack Macrae and Jordan Roughead from injury.Were just really riding on energy and enthusiasm at the moment, he said.Coming off such a good win, were just full of belief and feeling good and I think that sort of just takes away a few niggles.

Benik Afobe was with Arsenal for 15 years before being sold to Wolves last year but his goalscoring feats have got him back to the Premier League in quick time. Renell Wren Jersey . Ahead of the new Bournemouth signings reunion on Sunday, Adam Bate examines the journey so far… Afobe seals win Benik Afobe condemned Crystal Palace to a fifth consecutive league loss Its four-and-a-half years since a young Benik Afobe replaced the injured Jack Wilshere in an Emirates Cup game against New York Red Bulls, impressing the Arsenal crowd with his pace and enthusiasm. With Thierry Henry among the opposition and Robin van Persie alongside him, Afobe might not have been the only one hoping this was Arsenals past, present and future on view.But a hamstring injury of his own soon scuppered that season and despite staying at the club into 2015, the Emirates Cup run-out was as close as Afobe would get to the Arsenal first team. On Sunday, hell take on his old club for the first time as Bournemouths £10m record signing. Most goals in English football since August 2014 Player Club Goals Sergio Aguero Man City 49 Harry Kane Tottenham 49 Benik Afobe Bournemouth 45 Afobe might only be 22 but despite the injury problems hes already packed plenty into his career. Only Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane have scored more goals in English football in the past two years, and his progress could be seen as a fine advert for escaping the cosseted world of London Colney.Coming from Arsenal you got used to having nice things as a kid - going on tour, having sponsorship deals from the age of 16 and playing for the England age group teams, Afobe once said of life as a Premier League academy prospect. Dickie Davies sits down with Afobe to discuss his aims for the season It was easier than other people have had, but growing up and going out on loan, you see players in League One were going home and washing their own boots. You see how grown men live and conduct themselves off the pitch as well.Afobes first foray into senior football came as a 17-year-old with Huddersfield, where he forged a promising partnership with Jordan Rhodes and scored eight goals between November 2010 and May 2011 as the Terriers went all the way to the League One play-off final. Eddie Howe singled out Afobe for praise after the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace Lee Clark was the manager who gave him his debut off the bench in a 2-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday and immediately identified the traits that would get Afobe back to the Premier League.For 17 years of age, it was an absolutely fantastic performance, said Clark of that first appearance. He was outstanding at times, in terms of his runs, beating people, and getting shots on goal. He appreciated his team-mates and he can also look after himself, he can handle the physical side. Afobe put in the work in training for Arsenal but didnt get his chance Further spells at Reading, Bolton and Millwall added to his experience, while Owls boss Stuart Gray appreciated his gifts during a three-month stint at Hillsborough. He wants to run in behind and stretch the game, while being technically very good and a strong centre-forward. Hes a quality player.But it was with MK Dons that Afobe really made the breakthrough, scoring 19 goals before Christmas in the 2014/15 season. This sequence included a memorable brace in a 4-0 Capital One Cup thrashing of Manchester United. Jonny Evans simply had no answer to the questions asked of him. Afobe scored twice in a 4-0 win over Manchester United with MK Dons Wolves swooped soon after to secure a £2m deal and the step up proved no problem. Why would it be? Those qualities of pace, power and precision are assets at any level and - combined with a first-class attitude - helped him to 13 goals in 21 games as Wolves pushed for the play-offs.Unusually for a player so willing to run in behind, Afobe is also happy coming deep. Speaking to former strike-partner Adam Le Fondre, a picture of a complete forward emerges. I wouldnt say hes a No 9 or a No 10, Le Fondre told Sky Sports. Hes more of an all-round frontman. You cant label him. Hes better than just being a No 9. He can drop off and link the play and has great ability. The best of Afobes goals for former club Wolves in the 2015/16 season With Bakary Sako gone and Nouha Dicko injured, this season was more of a struggle and Afobe was dropped by Wolves as recently as December. But its worth noting that head coach Kenny Jackett praised his attitude and he was into double figures by the time Bournemouth stumped up an eight-figure sum.That vast profit for Wolves in just 12 months is a reflection of the spiralling prices paid by Premier League clubs, but also an indication of Afobes potential to step up. After a faltering start on debut against West Ham, hes already given a hint of his talents by netting in the next three games. Fox in the box? All of Afobes Bournemouth goals have come from close range Eddie Howe described him as razor sharp in getting off the mark against Norwich and a neat finish at Sunderland underlined what he can offer in front of goal. Afobes winner against Crystal Palace on Tuesday made it three in three, ending any thoughts that he might not get chances at this level.Indeed, according to Opta, Afobe has also missed three clear chances for his new club. So far, hes averaging a clear chance every 59 minutes - topping a list that includes Sergio Aguero, Odion Ighalo, Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane among the rest of the top 10. Clear chance frequency - PL 2015/16 Forward Club Clear chances (min. 3) Frequency (mins) Benik Afobe Bournemouth 5 59 Sergio Aguero Man City 16 78 Olivier Giroud Arsenal 18 89 Mame Biram Diouf Stoke 8 92 Odion Ighalo Watford 21 93 Jamie Vardy Leicester 22 95 Harry Kane Tottenham 22 96 Theo Walcott Arsenal 12 98 Romelu Lukaku Everton 20 102 Alexis Sanchez Arsenal 12 103 All the signs are that Afobe has the intelligence in his movement to elude defenders even at Premier League level. The next test will be the close attentions of Laurent Koscielny, the defender whom Vardy and Ighalo rate as the countrys best.Its also an opportunity for the boy born in Leyton who attended Arsenals academy from the age of six to remind his former club of his capabilities. The reunion might be seen as a potentially embarrassing one for Arsene Wenger, but the man himself appears happy to see Afobe blossom. Howe explains why new arrival Afobe fits the Bournemouth mould He has the qualities to integrate into a team like Bournemouth, whose game is based on movement, pace and quick football, Wenger said recently. I must say I am very happy for Benik because he had an outstanding attitude here and I am very pleased he has done well.It is a good opportunity for him and I hope he will be successful there. Sometimes you have to let people go who are not completely ready for us, knowing that they could be successful. I am very happy because we have contributed to his success and I hope he will have a long, good career. Afobe netted the winner against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Tuesday Theres no reason to doubt Wengers sincerity, but hell surely hope that Afobes progress is delayed for 90 minutes. After all, a goal on Sunday could be the latest damaging blow to Arsenals title hopes. Afobe might not represent Arsenals future, but its a future that nevertheless looks ever more promising.

Neymar is so happy at Barcelona Neymars father was in court as part as a civil case brought against him, the players former club Santos, and Barcelona, by a Brazilian company - DIS - over the fee paid for the striker in 2013. The company owned 40 per cent of the players sports rights.Neymar - who finished third in the Ballon dOr vote behind team-mate Lionel Messi and Real Madrids Cristiano Ronaldo - and his father deny any wrongdoing.The world record fee is the estimated £85m Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale so Uniteds bid - if true - would have smashed that.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Coach Dave Clawson hopes his Wake Forest players are all grown up now.The Demon Deacons have been among the nations youngest teams during Clawsons first two years at the school. All those freshmen and sophomores on his first depth chart in 2014 are now juniors and seniors, and hes hoping they can take a noticeable step forward after consecutive 3-9 seasons.Its tough to be patient in the ACCs Atlantic Division, where Clemson and Florida State look to reload every year with five-star recruits, but Clawson hopes the growing pains the past two seasons will finally start to pay off.I believe theres a way to win everywhere, he said. I think the process of how you do that isnt the same everywhere. We believe in our process at Wake Forest. I think this year we will take a nice step forward and become a much more competitive team that wins more games.Wake Forest, which has the smallest enrollment of any school in a power conference, ended last season with 27 players on the final depth chart in either their first or second year in the program -- with one at every position on offense -- and had only five players who were in their fifth year at the school.Those numbers are a little better this year -- six sixth-year players, 13 seniors in all and 15 redshirt juniors behind them -- and its a big reason why Clawson says this is his best team there.Wake Forest returns nine starters on offense, including four offensive linemen, and some welcome depth at the skill positions. Clawson says he has at least five running backs and seven receivers who can contribute.Now theyre a year older, a year stronger, understand the system better, he said. Thaats when guys make the big jump, is that second year playing. Robert Nkemdiche Jersey. Were going to have a whole bunch of guys on offense that hopefully collectively make that jump together.QB QUESTIONSClawson wants some clarity at quarterback, where he said it really became a juggling act all year with injuries to both John Wolford and Kendall Hinton. Wolfords more dangerous with his arm, while Hinton has better feet, and Clawson says they will split reps during camp. He said he believes in both, would prefer that one steps up and claims the job but adds that its hard to imagine we go through a year where we dont need both of them.CAM CANWake Forest has one of the ACCs best tight ends in Cam Serigne, a redshirt junior who needed just two years to tie a school record at his position with 100 receptions. Clawson says two years in his strength program has changed Serigne from a receiver who plays tight end into a model tight end, calling him a complete football player. That should help a rushing offense that has ranked last in the ACC in both 2014 and 15.KEY GAMESThe measuring stick comes Sept. 10 when the Demon Deacons visit Duke, an instate rival thats a model for the program Clawson is trying to build. Wins figure to be scarce in a division with Clemson, Florida State and Louisville, so a victory over the Blue Devils might be necessary if Wake Forest is to win six games and reach its first bowl in five years.SEASON OPENERWake Forest has a manageable opener Sept. 1 against a Tulane team breaking in a new coach.PREDICTIONWin 5, Lose 7.

ROME -- Inter Milan showed signs of improvement in a 1-1 draw with Palermo on Sunday in its home opener at San Siro. Deion Sanders Youth Jersey .The Nerazzurris preparations for Serie A were slowed by the departure of Roberto Mancini less than two weeks before the season started and new manager Frank de Boer had a rough start with a 2-0 loss at Chievo Verona last weekend.While Inter dominated the first half, it was another difficult game as Andrea Rispoli put Palermo ahead three minutes after the break with the visitors first shot on goal.However, Inters prized striker Mauro Icardi equalized in the 72nd after being left alone inside the box to head home a cross from newly-signed Antonio Candreva.Brazilian-born Italy forward Eder nearly won it for Inter with another header from a Candreva cross five minutes later but the ball went wide.Ivan Perisic, Gary Medel and Icardi each produced chances early on for Inter.My goal isnt important, because if you dont win there are no important goals, said Icardi, who was the joint Serie A scoring leader with 22 goals in 2014-15. We played well and we created a lot but the ball didnt go in.Also, Roma wasted a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw at Cagliari that followed a Champions League playoff loss to Porto.Diego Perotti converted an early penalty -- his third spot-kick in two matches -- and Kevin Strootman got Romas second after the break. Marco Borriello pulled one back for the hosts and Marco Sau scored the equalizer three minutes from the end with a header.Genoa, Sassuolo, Juventus and Sampdoria each have a full six points after the opening two rounds, while Napoli is two points behind.Genoa came back from a goal down to defeat Crotone 3-1 while Sassuolo, last seasons revelation with a sixth-place finish, beat promoted Pescara 2-1.Crotone had to play its first ever Serie A home match 600 kilometers (375 miles) away in Pescara with its Ezio Scida stadium undergoing renovation and expansion.After Gregoire Defrel put Sassuolo ahead, Domenico Berardi scored his seventh goal in six matches this season, including the Europa League.Sampdoria beat Atalanta 2-1 with goals from Fabio Quagliarella and Edgar Barreto. Franck Kessie, a 19-year-old Ivory Coast midfielder, had put Atalanta ahead, giving him three goals with his first three shots on target attempted in Serie A.Fiorentina defeated Chievo Verona 1-0 with a goal from Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez, who is on loan from Aston Villa.Also, it was: Torino 5, Bologna 1; and Udinese 2, Empoli 0.A moment of silence was observed before each match to mourn the nearly 300 victims of an earthquake in central Italy on Wednesday.Representatives of Inters new majority owners, the Chinese retail giant Suning, attended the match in Milan, and newly signed Portugal midfielder Joao Mario was presented to fans before kick-off.Inter signed Mario from Sporting Lisbon for 45 million euros ($50 million), making him the clubs second most expensive acquisition after Christian Vieri.Palermo, one of several clubs to have expressed interest in signing former Inter forward Mario Balotelli, also has one point.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Troy Aikman Youth Jersey .

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots released veteran running back Donald Brown on Tuesday. An early-camp injury ultimately doomed his chance of sticking on the roster at a position where the club is thin.Brown, who signed a one-year, $965,000 contract with the Patriots in March, was competing for a backup spot behind LeGarrette Blount and Dion Lewis, the latter of whom will open the season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list as he will undergo a second surgery on his left knee.Brown had pulled up in the fifth practice of training camp -- members of the athletic training staff appeared to be checking his hamstring -- and hadnt been a full participant in practice since. He didnt play in the teams first two preseason games.Brown entered the NFL as a first-round draft choice of the IIndianapolis Colts, playing five years with them before spending the 2014 and 2015 seasons with the San Diego Chargers. Bob Lilly Youth Jersey. By releasing him, the Patriots thin their ranks at a position that was already short on depth. Blount is the top power option, while third-year man James White projects to step in for Lewis as the top passing back until his return. The team also has Brandon Bolden (5th year), Tyler Gaffney (3rd year), Joey Iosefa (2nd year) and undrafted rookie D.J. Foster at running back.In addition to releasing Brown, the Patriots also informed defensive tackle Frank Kearse and cornerback E.J. Biggers of their releases. Both were long shots to make the roster.

Cron went 6 for 6 with two homers and five RBI, Carlos Perez had five hits and drove in six and the Los Angeles Angels walloped the Red Sox 21-2 on Saturday night to end a four-game losing streak.Honestly, were embarrassed by tonights ball game, Boston manager John Farrell said.

Its the first time Boston has allowed 20 runs in Fenway Park since a 20-11 drubbing by the rival Yankees in August of 2009.The Red Sox were 10-16 in June. Second baseman Dustin Pedroia said the team needs to get things turned for the better quickly, but also needs to relax.Absolutely we need to get out of it, he said. We need to play better. But I mean going into the year we knew we were going to have a stretch like this. If everyone thought we were going to show up and win 140 games, thats not how baseball works.

In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Since the start of preseason practices, Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton has been selling his teams depth as their biggest advantage. On Tuesday night, the Seminoles put that on full display.Six players scored in double figures as the Seminoles cruised to a 99-78 victory over Iona. It is the first time since the 2014-15 opener against Manhattan that they have had that many players in double figures.Overall I was pleased with the direction, Hamilton said. The biggest challenge for us is to utilize the quality of the depth. Were trying to explain that we have to understand that each night it is going to be different guys that are going to step up. Were a team that is going to win by committee.Freshman Jonathan Isaac led the way with 20 points as the 2-0 Seminoles shot 58 percent from the floor (34 of 59) and were 30 of 42 when not shooting 3-pointers. Phil Cofer had 13 points and six rebounds while Terrance Mann (12), Jarquez Smith (12), Trent Forrest (10) and Dwayne Bacon (10) also scored in double figures.They also had nine players who saw 15 minutes or more of playing time as Hamilton continues to look for the best floor combinations.We just wanted to lock in and show people why we should be in the tournament. You cant decide that off two games but you just have to keep playing the way we were playing tonight, Bacon said.The Gaels led for most of the first five minutes before the Seminoles went on a 14-2 run for a 24-13 lead with 10:36 remaining. They would lead by as many as 18 in the first half and had a 47-32 advantage at halftime.FSU led by as many as 26 points midway in the second half as it extended its win streak in nonconference home games to 12.UConn transfer Sam Cassell Jr., who is the son of former NBA and Florida State standout Sam Cassell Sr., led Iona (0-1) with 28 points. Jordan Washington addded 16 and Jon Severe 12. Wayne Chrebet Jersey. .The Gaels, who scored 37.3 percent of their points on 3-pointers last season, were 9 of 31 from beyond the arc.They have a lot more size than we have and when Jordan got in foul trouble it hurts our team, Iona coach Tim Cluess said. They did a good job of reversing and driving the ball on us along with really challenging us at the rim and getting us into foul trouble.BIG PICTUREIona: The Gaels lost six players from last years team that made the NCAA Tournament. With two sophomores in the starting lineup, they could struggle early in the season as coach Tim Cluess tries to work in six newcomers into the rotation.Florida State: Coach Leonard Hamilton was eager to see how his team would do against a quality mid-major opponent. The Seminoles struggled early, especially in their transition game, but freshmen Isaac and Forrest looked more relaxed in their second game, combining for 30 points.STAT OF THE NIGHTFlorida State is usually a good team from the free-throw line but it started out by missing seven of its first 10. The Seminoles though would end the night by making 24 of their last 30.HE SAID ITIt felt good getting on the court and playing down here. Its my fathers team. I wanted to beat him so I could talk trash to him but it is what it is. Cassell Jr.UP NEXTIona: The Gaels travel out west for a game against Nevada on Sunday. Ionas first six games are on the road and it doesnt have its first home game until Dec. 4 against Niagara.Florida State: The Seminoles host Winthrop on Friday as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joereedy Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '  
RIO DE JANEIRO -- It looks as if the water polo pool is turning green with envy. Curtis Martin Jersey .The mens Olympic tournament resumed Wednesday in green-tinged water after the diving pool at Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre turned a dark green the previous day. There was no sign of any water quality issues with the water polo pool during the first day of the womens competition Tuesday.A decrease in the alkaline level in the diving well Tuesday afternoon led to the green color, organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada said. He added that the pool for water polo and synchronized swimming is being affected in the same way.We have treated both pools during the night and the alkalinity levels have already improved, Andrada said. We expect the color to be back to blue very shortly.Maybe not, according to a U.S. pool expert.Once you get behind, it gets hard to get back in front of it, said Jerry Wallace, chairman of the California Pool & Spa Association, a trade group.According to FINA, the world governing body for aquatic sports, water tanks ran out of some of the chemicals used in the water treatment process, causing the pH level to go outside the usual range, leading to the discoloration. Andrada and FINA said there is no risk to athletes competing in either pool.Just from TV and pictures on the computer, it looks more like an algae than alkaline problem turning the water green, Wallace said by phone from Sacramento, California.Andrada said algae also is an issue.The algae makes the water look green. We kept the same level of maintenance as we did before, but we had far more athletes, he said. We had more dirt in the water and that generated more algae.Wallace said if theres a reaction with iron in the water, the pool would turn a translucent green. But a murky green color, as seen in the diving pool, would indicate an algae issue. Wallace said some strains of algae will grow even in water that is balanced.If theyre cleaning the diving pool and then using the same tools in water polo, they could contaminate it, he said. Algae spores can be transmitted.The warm and humid climate in Rio de Janeiro could be a factor, too.There are no such problems at the swimming venue, a temporary facility with its own filtration system. The diving and water polo pools are part of a permanent facility opened in 2007.The black lines at the bottom of the water polo pool were clearly visible as play continued throughout the day, and there was no evidence of the color affecting the action. But a couple players said they could tell the chemical mixture is off.They put way too much chlorine, U.S. captain Tony Azevedo said. The last quarter, I can barely open my eyes.Everyones obsessed with the green water. Who cares about the green water? Azevedo continued. Sometimes you can have green water, black water, it doesnt matter as long as its safe for us. You throw in too much chlorine, all of the sudden you cant see. These are things that, its the Olympic Games, you cant have that.Hungarian water polo player Gergo Zalanki got some drops for his eyes after an 8-8 draw against Greece. But he wasnt sure chlorine was the problem.Yes, it feels like that, but I dont know, Zalanki said between sniffles. In Hungary theres lots of water like this. It feels like lots of coloring, but theres something different.The Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre, named after the first Brazilian woman to compete in the Olympics, was renovated before the Rio Games. The major upgrades included new springboards, a refurbished medical center, new hydrotherapy baths and two new warmup pools. There is no mention of any update to the water treatment system in the venue description.Andrada said a test event at the facility did not account for increased use for longer periods during the Olympics.We probably failed to note that with more athletes the water could be affected in a different way, he said.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Wesley Walker Jersey . The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. Wholesale Jets Jerseys .

Padraig Harrington has branded calls from the likes of Rory McIlroy to change the qualification criteria for the European Ryder Cup team are silly.McIlroy, among others, has said the Ryder Cup should be the best 12 players from Europe vs. the best 12 players from the US, regardless of whether or not they are a European Tour member. It meant the likes of Paul Casey missed out on the chance to play at Hazeltine, a decision that saw McIlroy and?Lee Westwood?speak of their?desire to see the rules changed.And though he didnt mention McIlroy or Westwood by name, Harrington defended the European Tours stance on its qualification system.Harrington told the Irish Independent: The Ryder Cup is far too important to the European Tour for the man on the ground to be turning around and saying, Why not just select the top 12 in the world rankings and be done with it?That would be silly, wouldnt it? The reason we have done well in the Ryder Cup is because of our selection criteria and how we have worked it.Just because we lost the last one and the US have changed their criteria doesnt mean we should change ours. Ours was working just fine.The Ryder Cup is all about the European Tour. And the Ryder Cup, to be honest, it represents the non-Europeans who are members of the European Tour too. It is all about the European Tour. That is how I see it.It is absolutely a carrot used by the European Tour. If you want to play in the Ryder Cup and improve yourr career prospects and all that goes with it, you have got to be a member of the tour and play five times. Joe Namath Jersey. It is not much to ask anybody.He added: I like the system in place personally. I fully understand the importance of the Ryder Cup to the European Tour and the rank and file of the European Tour. You would never want to take away. Its like the golden ticket, isnt it?Every rank and file player starting a Ryder Cup year thinks he can make a Ryder Cup team. You dont want to take away that golden ticket. Thats what drives our tour. Youve got to look at the ordinary guy on tour, the rank and file guy and give him an opportunity to make the team.The support of the grassroots guys for the Ryder Cup is very important for the players, not just when they play on Ryder Cup teams but the support of guys who havent played is important for teams.You cant separate the Ryder Cup from the European Tour. It has to be kept relevant to the players in Europe who are playing in Europe.The current selection process sees four Ryder Cup qualifiers from a European points list, five more from a world points list, and three captains picks. But Harrington is in favour of small changes.I would change the [final qualifying cut-off] date and push it back two weeks -- its just a little early, a month before it, he added.
