A look at whats happening today at the baseball winter meetings in Oxon Hill, Maryland:---CLOSING TIMEIt was a good week for several top closers, with Aroldis Chapman and Mark Melancon getting rich deals and Wade Davis winding up with the World Series champion Cubs. Nacho Monreal Jersey . As teams pack up and leave the D.C. area, star reliever Kenley Jansen is still on the free agent market. Who knows -- last season, the Yankees employed Chapman, Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances in the same bullpen. Would they ever consider a trio of Chapman, Betances and Jansen?CAPITAL GAINSChris Sale, Matt Holliday and Ian Desmond are among several players who switched clubs, and they could become crowd favorites in their new homes. It might be a tougher road for Adam Eaton. The Nationals paid a steep price to get the high-energy outfielder from the White Sox -- three young and talented pitchers -- and Washington fans are likely to keep grousing this week about whether hes worth it.GETTING DRAFTY IN HEREThe Rule 5 draft finishes baseballs annual gathering as teams see whether they want to pluck mostly anyone left off 40-man rosters. Odubel Herrera of the Phillies and Delino DeShields of the Rangers were recent examples of players picked up that way. Before them, future home run champ Jose Bautista, MVP Josh Hamilton and Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana were Rule 5ers. Teams like the Red Sox that have deep, set rosters often lose a minor leaguer or two in this draft. Ainsley Maitland-Niles Jersey .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J.

The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope. RIO DE JANEIRO - Andrew Bogut, Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic should maybe all take a leaf out of John Millmans book.The 27-year-old, one of only two Australia players left in the mens singles at the Olympics after day one, has a simple approach to these Games that might perhaps benefit some of his nations better-known athletes.I can [only] speak from my experience and its not an event to miss, Millman said after making Games history by becoming the first man to shut out his opponent, his 6-0, 6-0 victory against Lithuanias Ricardas Berankis coming in just 50 minutes on Saturday.With all the rubbish stuff that goes on in the world, the Olympic Games is the world community coming together to celebrate not just athletes but compassion, friendship and respect for one another.Its humbling walking into a stadium among people from all over the planet.That could easily be taken as a swipe at Kyrgios and Tomic, both of whom have had differences of opinion with the Australian Olympic Committee and made themselves unavailable for the Games.It wasnt, but the implication was that Millman found their decisions strange.Nicks got his whole career ahead of him, he added. Nick and Bernie are not the only athletes who have sat out these Olympics and everyone has reasons for doing so.Theyre good enough players and they have both represented their country in Davis Cup, Im sure they will have a chance to play in the Olympics down the track.How about Australia basketball star Boguts less-than-complimentary tweets about the accommodation in the athletes village, then, maybe Millman shared those sentiments?Nope. There was a bit of smoke and mirrors there, the Brisbane player said. We are used to roughing it a little bit. Ive played my fair share on the Futures tour and we roughed it a lot more than in the village. Ive slept on floors and that sort of thing. Were kind of used to it.All the tennis boys are in the same kind of dorm and village life is good. With all these unbelievabble sports people walking around, you dont get that [elsewhere]. Henrikh Mkhitaryan Jersey. It was refreshing to get a positive take from the Australian camp, even if some of the complaints they have made about the facilities have been well founded.It has been unfortunate that theirs have been the loudest voices in the build-up to the Games because it has started to earn them a reputation around Rio for grousing. Even Millman slipped a little when he said having to eat the food in the village was tough.His result was a contrast to those of the other Australian men playing on the first day of the tennis tournament, as Jordan Thompson went down 6-4, 6-2 to Britains Kyle Edmund and Thanasi Kokkinakis lost 7-6 (4), 7-6 (3) to Portugals Gastao Elias.The latter result, which left Millman and Sam Groth in the draw, was tough on 20-year-old Kokkinakis, who hadnt played a match since last October because of a shoulder injury.He may not have enhanced Australian tennis image by getting himself told off by the umpire for quietly saying the F-word, but could probably be forgiven a bit of frustration.I was just hoping to play well and get through the match without an injury on the shoulder, he said after his first-round defeat. It was better than I thought it would beI was limited on some serves, hit a lot of double faults. It was a little bit of a big ask [being thrown back in at the Olympics] but it was my choice. I wanted to be in there and start somewhere. I was going to live with the result whatever happened.Kokkinakis, 20, is talented with a lot of potential but Australia having to rely on him didnt reflect well on the decisions of Kyrgios and Tomic.He was frustrated to go out after raising his game but not being able to sustain it and at least he chimed in with the sentiments of Millman, vowing to get over the defeat and enjoy a bit more of the Games.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Zapatillas Yeezy Baratas . -- Tom Brady chatted up one of his old 49ers favorites in Tom Rathman, then pushed aside all that nostalgia for a few hours to earn his 199th career victory.Brady threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns, and the New England Patriots beat San Francisco 30-17 on Sunday. Brady tied Hall of Famer Brett Favre for the second-most wins by a quarterback in NFL history. With his next win, Brady will match Peyton Manning for the top spot.Back home in the Bay Area playing on San Franciscos home field for the first time, facing the team he cheered as a boy, Brady handled the game and took care of the ball on a day it was difficult to do so.When the game ended, a rainbow had emerged over the entire stadium -- a fitting cap to Bradys fine afternoon. No. 12 then threw a football into the stands behind one end zone and hustled off to see all of his supporters.It was very cool. It doesnt get any better than that. To have the first chance to ever do that was very special, Brady said . I felt it in pregame warmup and it carried right to the last play of the game. It was pretty great.They have a great organization, they always have. They inspired a lot of kids here in the Bay Area in my time growing up, and I was one of them.Under pressure on the slick grass, Brady found Danny Amendola for a 5-yard touchdown to start the fourth quarter, then later hit Malcolm Mitchell on a 56-yard score for his fourth TD pass.Brady also threw short touchdown passes to Julian Edelman and James White on his first two possessions and completed 24 of 40 passes. The AFC East-leading Patriots (8-2) bounced back from last weeks loss to the Seahawks on a rainy day at Levis Stadium.Edelman caught a 4-yard TD pass for the first score of the game , breaking away from Keith Reaser to the corner and barely keeping two feet inbounds. Edelman finished with eight receptions for 77 yards, and Mitchell had four catches for 98 yards.Brady hit White for a 9-yard touchdown , then Amendola reached a career high with his fourth TD catch of 2016 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Mitchells athletic, reaching grab between two defenders and straightaway speed after the catch resulted in his first career touchdown to seal it.Brady completed eight of his first nine passes and nine of 11, while New Englands defense flew through a leaky offensive line at Colin Kaepernick for four first-half sacks and five in all.Brady had never played a road game against the 49ers. He injured his knee before the Patriots 2008 visit to Candlestick Park -- the very place the young Brady used to cheer Joe Montana and witnessed The Catch by Dwight Clark.It only took until his 17th NFL season for Brady to finally get this chance. Of course, he shined in the big moment.Hes Tom Brady. Hes going to make the plays hes going to make, and thats what he did today, 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks said.LeGarrette Blount had a season-long 44-yard run and finished with 124 yards rushing.Kaepernick threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Vance McDonald late in the first half to get the 49ers (1-9) within 13-10, but they didnt do enough right after intermission until Shaun Draughns late 13-yard TD catch.Levis Stadium was so packed with Patriots fans it almost sounded like Foxborough.Kaepernick has looked improved each week since regaining the starting job last month, completing 16 of 30 passes for 206 yards. But the 1-and-Niners -- as their nickname quickly became Sunday -- lost a ninth straight game under first-year coach Chip Kelly since opening the season with a shutout of the Rams.SO MANY TARGETS: During the regular season, Brady has thrown touchdown passes to 63 players -- second-most behind Vinny Testaverdes 70.Brady also had four TD passes with no interceptions for the 21st time in his career.PATS PASS RUSH: Five Patriots had sacks on Kaepernick: Patrick Chung, Malcolm Butler, Kyle Van Noy, Donta Hightower and Rob Ninkovich.Hes a tough guy to tackle, coach Bill Belichick said. Our players stayed after him.LEWIS DEBUT: Pats running back Dion Lewis made his season debut after recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. He had a 9-yard reception for a first down during New Englands opening drive.DAWSONS MARK: With a 33-yard field goal in the first quarter, San Franciscos 41-year-old kicker, Phil Dawson, became the 10th kicker in NFL history to reach 400 field goals.SMITHS FIRST MISS: San Francisco wideout Torrey Smith missed his first career game and had his streak of consecutive games snapped at 89 because of a shoulder injury sustained last week at Arizona. This is his sixth NFL season.UP NEXTPatriots: at Jets on Sunday.49ers: at Dolphins on Sunday.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Yeezy 500 Comprar España .

Manchester Citys new coach Pep Guardiola will be heading back to Barcelona after the Premier League club was pitted against his former team in the Champions League draw on Thursday.Guardiola, who also spent most of his playing career at the Catalan club, steered Barcelona to two Champions League titles as well as a number of other trophies during his time as coach from 2008-12.The two teams play each other on Oct. 19 in Barcelona and Nov. 1 in Manchester.Borussia Moenchengladbach and Celtic complete Group C.Cristiano Ronaldo also returns to his first club as holder Real Madrid has been drawn against Sporting Lisbon. Borussia Dortmund and Legia Warsaw are also in Group F.Surprise Premier League champion Leicester faces Porto, Brugge and FC Copenhagen in its first time in Europes premier competition.The eight four-team groups begin play on Sept. 13-14.---Group A:Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal will be favorites to progress but Basel boasts a fearsome record against English clubs in European competition.Neither team has ever won the European Cup but PSG reached the quarterfinals in the last four seasons. However, it is now without Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who moved to Manchester United in the offseason.Arsenal was eliminated in the round of 16 in the last six seasons.Since 2011, Basel has helped eliminate Manchester United and Liverpool from the Champions League, as well as knocking Tottenham out of the Europa League.Ludogorets is playing in the group stages for only the second time in the Bulgarian clubs history, having reached the same stage two years ago.---Group B:Napoli will be hoping for better luck than the last time they reached the group stages.In 2013/14, Napoli became the first -- and so far only -- team to fail to progress after picking up 12 points, losing out to Dortmund and Arsenal in a three-way head-to-head.It should have an easier time this campaign, as it has been pitted against Benfica, Dynamo Kiev and Besiktas.---Group C:While Guardiola will be highly familiar with Barcelona, many of Citys players will also know the Catalan club well.Barcelona beat City at the last-16 stage in 2014 and 2015, while goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has just completed a move from the Spanish champion to Guardiolas new side.Its good for Pep because he knows Borussia very well from his time at Bayern and Barcelona as well so we will see, Citys Director of Football Txiki Begiristain said.He had been back to Barca before with Bayern Munich so its not the first time hes been returned to the Camp Nou. Barcelona will start as favorites for the group but that is nothing new, they are a fantastic side.City also played Moenchengladbach in the group stage last year en route to the semifinals.Celtic will be hoping for a repeat of the 2012-13 season when it managed a shock 2-1 home win over Barcelona 2-1 in the group stage.---Group D:Bayern Munich will be out for revenge when it faces Atletico Madrid after losing to the Spanish side on away goals in last seasons semifinals.Inn May, Atletico lost the final on penalties to Real Madrid -- finishing runner-up to its bitter rival for the second time in three years.

Contrasting sides in PSV Eindhoven and Rostov make up the group.PSV has played regularly in European competition since the 1970s, while it is Russian side Rostovs maiden appearance in the European Cup.---Group E:A group where anyone could win it or finish bottom.None of the teams have ever won the competition although Leverkusen and Monaco have both reached the final -- in 2002 and 2004 respectively.Tottenham last played in the Champions League in 2010-11, reaching the quarterfinals, while CSKA Moscow made a group stage exit in 2013-14.---Group F:Matches between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are swift becoming classics.Madrid beat Dortmund in the quarterfinals in 2014, avenging its semifinal defeat the previous campaign.No team has successfully defended the Champions League since its inception in 1992 but Madrid forward Gareth Bale hopes his side can become the first to do so, with the final being staged in his home city of Cardiff.It would be amazing to experience a Champions League final in Cardiff, Bale said. It is obviously a difficult group but it always is in the Champions League. We fancy our chances to get through but we know there are going to be some difficult games.Meanwhile, as well as providing a former player in Ronaldo, Sporting had more players than any other club in Portugals Euro 2016-winning squad -- Rui Patricio, Joao Mario, William Carvalho and Adrien Silva.Legia Warsaw completes the group, becoming Polands first team in the Champions League proper in 20 years.---Group G:Apart from two-time winner Porto, Group G is devoid of Champions League pedigree.Leicester, which was in the third tier of English football in 2009, is making its debut in the competition.Copenhagen reached the last 16 in 2010/11, one of only four previous times it has made it into the Champions League proper, while Brugge has also had only sporadic appearances in the group stages.---Group H:Juventus and Sevilla face each other in the group stages for the second successive season.Juventus beat Sevilla 2-0 at home but lost 1-0 in Spain, which meant it finished second in the group and faced Bayern Munich in the last 16 rather than Dinamo Kiev. The Turin side lost after extra time in the second leg in Germany.We missed an opportunity at Sevilla last year, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri wrote on Twitter. It will be a red-hot atmosphere in Lyon and Zagreb: we need to be focused, we know our aim.Sevilla was eliminated from the Champions League and went on to win the Europa League for the third season in a row.Lyon completes the group along with Dinamo Zagreb, which established one of the worst records in a group stage campaign, having lost all six games with a goal difference of minus 19 in 2011.

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- Kimi Raikkonen put Ferrari at the top of the timesheets during final practice for the Belgian Grand Prix, beating Fridays pace setters Red Bull and Mercedes to the fastest time. Takkarist McKinley Womens Jersey .Raikkonen, a four-time winner at Spa-Francorchamps, hooked up a clean lap to move ahead of Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo, who ended up 0.215s shy of the Ferrari driver. Sebastian Vettel finished third as Ferrari turned the top of the timesheets red, but the notable absence of the two Mercedes drivers and Red Bulls Max Verstappen poses more questions than answers ahead of qualifying.Lewis Hamilton set a hot lap on new super-soft tyres in the closing stages of the session, but with a back-row start hanging over him due to a 55-place grid penalty, his car is set up for race pace and not a qualifying-style lap. He ended up behind Valtteri Bottas, but a telling fastest opening sector hints at the straight-line speed the reigning world champion is hoping to carry into Spas best overtaking opportunity at Les Combes on Sunday.Nico Hulkenberg was sixth fastest ahead of the second Mercedes of Nico Rosberg, who could only manage the seventh fastest time of the session. Rosbergs lap appeared to be ruined by traffic in the first sector and his final time was 0.4s off his best effort in the opening practice session of the session, suggesting his true pace will only become apparent in qualifying.Max Verstappen suffered a gearbox problem during the session, meaning he failed to set a competitive lap time. The gearbox was newly fitted ahead of the session and a change would result in a five-place grid penalty, but team boss Christian Horner said the halt in running was just a precaution.It looks to be an electrical issue or a sensor most likely so it was precautionary, we stopped the car and took the box off just to make sure that we had plenty of time to hopefully address it before qualifying, he told Sky Sports.Asked if a penalty was likely, he added: No certainly not at the moment. At the moment its just an investigation, have a look at the sensor and then form a diagnosis from there.Up until final practice, Verstappens weekend had been looking promising and his fastest time in second practice on Friday afternoon would still have been enough to put him second, and ahead of Ricciardo, in FP3.The two Williams drivers returned to the top ten after a disappointing Friday practice and are likely to be vying for positions with the Force Indias, which finished sixth and ninth. Haas remained competitive, with Romain Grosjean sneaking into the top ten, 0.181s ahead of Fernando Alonso in the fastest McLaren.Pascal Wehrlein again looked quick, hauling his Manor up to 15th place, just behind Kevin Magnussen and ahead of the two Toro Rossos, which are down on power with their year-old Ferrari engines. Both Wehrlein and Magnussen were involved in close shaves with other drivers during the session, which could result in stewards investigations.Wehrlein came across a slow-moving Esteban Gutierrez at the top of Eau Rouge and had to swerve to avoid the Haas, later calling for the Mexican to be penalised over team radio. Magnussen was accused by Sebastian Vettel of blocking the Ferrari heading through the high-speed Blanchimont, with the four-time champion remonstrating over the radiowaves.What an idiot. Did you see that? Its called Free Practice. Free Practice. Who gives a s***?Any grid penalties that are doled out will be added to the ones of Hamilton, Alonso and Saubers Marcus Ericsson for various engine changes this weekend.

PHILADELPHIA -- Yo, Philly: Book that trip to Houston in February. Mesut Ozil Arsenal Jersey .Carson Wentz is the real deal and hes taking the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl.Wentzs latest impressive performance came in a convincing 34-3 victory over Pittsburgh. Beating the Browns (0-3) and Bears (0-3) got fans excited. But dominating Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers (2-1) has them making reservations for the Big Game.Nevermind its only three games. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania now is Carson City, Wentzylvania.Now, time for a reality check. Its September. Not for nothing, as they say in Philly, but theres a long way to go.Here are other overreactions following Week 3:OVERREACTION: The Browns are going 0-16. They lost in overtime to Miami because Cody Parkey missed three field goals, including a 46-yarder on the final play of regulation.REALISTIC REACTION: Maybe Brian Billick was right. He said Cleveland go winless.---OVERREACTION: The Panthers (1-2) wont make the playoffs. Theyve already lost more games this season than last year.REALISTIC REACTION: They play in the NFC South and they have Cam Newton.---OVERREACTION: Ryan Fitzpatrick will break the NFL record for most passes intercepted in a season. Fitzpatrick had six picks in the Jets loss to Kansas City.REALISTIC REACTION: George Blanda threw 42 interceptions in 1962. Despite the six-pack of picks, Fitzpatrick is on pace for 37.---OVERREACTION: The Rams will give Los Angeles an NFC West title. A win over Tampa Bay has the Rams (2-1) off to their best start in 10 years.REALISTIC REACTION: Seattle (2-1) and Arizona (1-2) still play in the same division.---OVERREACTION: The Broncos are better off with Trevor Siemian this season than they were with Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. Siemian became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 300 yards and four TDs without an interception in his first road start.REALISTIC REACTION: He had one TD and three picks in his first two games at home.---OVERREACTION: The Ravens will win the AFC North. Theyre 3-0 a year after finishing 5-11.REALISTIC REACTION: The teams they beat are 1-8. The Raiders (2-1) present a tougher test this week.---OVERREACTION: Blake Bortles will get benched. The Jaguars are 0-3 and Bortles has seven turnovers in three games.REALISTIC REACTION: Jacksonville has no run game to help Bortles so its not all his fault.---OVERREACTION: Ezekiel Elliott is the next Emmitt Smith. The No. 4 overall pick leads the NFC with 274 yards rushing.REALISTIC REACTION: Hes averaging 3.9 yards per carry. Smith is a Hall of Famer.

The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http://www.footballarsenalstore.com/Women-Carl-Jenkinson-Arsenal-Fc-Jersey/ . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. Jared Goff was handpicked to someday become the face of the Los Angeles Rams, but he wont even be in uniform when the season begins.Goff, who finished his first preseason as the Rams third-string quarterback, will be inactive during their Monday Night Football opener against the division rival San Francisco 49ers, coach Jeff Fisher said during a charity luncheon in Los Angeles on Tuesday.Fisher told NFL Network that punter Johnny Hekker will be the teams emergency backup, with teams rarely keeping three quarterbacks active due to the increased need for special-teams players. Case Keenum has maintained his standing as the Rams starter throughout the preseason, and Fisher said after Thursdays finale in Minnesota that Sean Mannion, a third-round draft pick in 2015, is currently his backup.Goff finished the preseason completing only 22 of 49 passes for 232 yards, with 2 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 2 fumbles and 4 sacks.Jareds had a great camp. So has Sean, Fisher told NFL Network. Case is clearly our starter.Goffs situation stands in contrast to the player taken one spot after him, Carson Wentz, whose potential convinced the Philadelphia Eagles to trade their former starter -- former Rams No. 1 pick Sam Bradford -- to the Minnesota Vikings.Wentz will start his first game this weekend, while Goff will watch his in street clothes.I just want him to feel and sense and absorb the pressures of Week 1, Fisher told NFL Network, regarding Goff. Hes going to be a great player. As weve said from day one, were not rushing him. We dont have to rush it. Im really happy with where he is right nnow. Lucas Torreira Arsenal Jersey. Its unfair to compare him to anybody else. I know Philly has got their situation; its a little different. ... Jared is in a good place right now. Hes done some really good things, so Im really pleased with his progress.Fisher indicated that Goff and Mannion would take turns with scout team reps during practice this week and could potentially switch roles for the home opener against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2, which would make Goff active and Mannion inactive.Back in mid-April, the Rams sent a passel of picks to the Tennessee Titans for the right to select No. 1 in the 2016 draft and potentially land a quarterback to build around.In order to attain the top selection -- along with a fourth- and sixth-round pick in the same draft -- the Rams sent the Titans their No. 15 pick, plus two second-round selections and a third-round pick in 2016 -- and also first- and third-round picks in 2017.After much debate between Goff (out of Cal) and Wentz (North Dakota State), the Rams chose Goff, who was believed to be more polished. Wentz played in only one preseason game before suffering a hairline rib fracture on a violent hit. Goff, meanwhile, struggled to make quick decisions and hold on to the football, never once actually challenging Keenum for the starting job.Were in a good place, Fisher stressed. Regardless of what everybody else is saying out there, [Goff is] our quarterback; hes going to be our franchise player. Its just not right now. ' ' '

DETROIT -- After homering off Justin Verlander for the third time this month, Baltimores J. Sonny Jurgensen Redskins Jersey .J. Hardy was at a loss for words. "Speechless," he said. "I couldnt tell you how it happened or what happened. I feel like I just kind of blacked out -- and Im happy about it." Hardy and Adam Jones went deep against the Detroit ace, and Manny Machado added a double and two sparkling plays at third base to lead the Orioles to a 5-2 victory over the Tigers on Tuesday night. Verlander (8-5) gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings. He walked four and struck out five. Hardy homered twice off Verlander in Baltimores 10-3 loss to the Tigers on June 1, and he opened the scoring Tuesday with two-run shot to left in the fourth. "I always pride myself on going deep into games and I want to," Verlander said. "Its just this year it seems like I havent been executing, or there have been a lot of teams that have battled me really tough. But youve just got to turn the page." Jones added a three-run homer in the fifth. Zach Britton (1-1) pitched well for Baltimore after being called up earlier in the day to make this start, allowing a run and five hits in 5 1-3 innings. "He was crisp. He attacked the zone," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Thats a tough lineup for a left-hander to go through. There are not any breathing spots there at all." Four Baltimore relievers finished it off. Detroit put two on in the ninth for Miguel Cabrera, but the Triple Crown winner bounced into a game-ending double play on the first pitch from Jim Johnson, who got his 26th save in 30 chances. Matt Tuiasosopo homered for the Tigers. Machado hit his major league-leading 33rd double of the year and put on a nifty show with his glove, diving to his left to stop Brayan Penas groundball in the third and diving in the other direction to make a play on Torii Hunters grounder the following inning. Hardy had three hits and his homer put the Orioles ahead 2-0 in the fourth. Machado led off the following inning with a double, and after Nick Markakis walked, Jones hit an opposite-field homer to right off Verlander to make it 5-0. "We battled against him," Jones said. "Sometimes you get beat, and tonight, we beat him." Machado also hit a single in the sixth, and he leads the majors with 101 hits. Cabrera has 98 after hitting two singles, but he was thrown out trying to stretch one of them into a double. Tuiasosopos homer in the fifth made it 5-1, and Cabrera came to bat later that inning with two on and two out, but he grounded out. Verlanders ERA increased to 3.72. He struggled a bit in the middle of May but appeared to be back in form after throwing seven scoreless innings at Kansas City on June 12. He was unable to build on that outing. "Its been a battle so far, obviously. Youve got that stretch of three or four starts where it was pretty frustrating," Verlander said. "I feel like Ive been getting better and better and better. Thats not necessarily going to work toward a perfect game. Youre not going to get better every time. Theres ups and downs and peaks and valleys." Britton gave the Orioles exactly what they needed when he returned from the minors to make his second big league start of the year. Darren ODay got four outs in relief for Baltimore, but he also allowed an RBI single by Austin Jackson in the seventh. The Tigers then caught a break. With runners on first and second and nobody out, Hunter hit a grounder to Machado, who tried to tag Pena between second and third before throwing to second for a force. Pena was not called out, though, giving Detroit a first-and-third situation with one out. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter came out to argue, but the point became moot when Cabrera and Prince Fielder both fouled out to end the inning. NOTES: Michigan basketball coach John Beilein threw out a ceremonial first pitch. ... Machado made an error in the eighth, but it didnt lead to any Detroit runs. ... The Tigers agreed to terms with four draft picks from this year: RHP Corey Knebel, CF Connor Harrell, SS Steven Negron and RHP Chase Edwards. ... Baltimore LHP Brian Matusz retired Fielder to end the seventh with the only pitch he threw. ... Detroits Rick Porcello (4-3) takes the mound against Baltimores Chris Tillman (7-2) on Wednesday.

With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Brandon Phillips grabbed the bouncing ball with his bare hand, tagged second base with his left knee as he fell and threw to first to complete a double play that immediately drew raves. Might have saved the game, too. Phillips homered and made the spectacular play to protect the lead in the seventh inning Friday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. He drove in a pair of runs with a single and a homer, but it was that unusual play on Ryan Brauns hard-to-handle grounder up the middle with two runners aboard in the seventh that had everyone talking -- and the Brewers talking to themselves. "Phillips -- weve seen him make some great plays," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "I didnt think Braun was going to hit into a double play, and Phillips makes another highlight play." Phillips had an RBI single off Yovani Gallardo (3-2) and added a solo homer in the seventh after making a saving play in the top of the inning on Brauns grounder. "I made a nice play, I dont know how," Phillips said. "I gambled on it. I took a chance on making it without my glove, and I made the play. "I practice the short hops, but Ive never had a bag to worry about. Ive touched the bag with my knees plenty of times." This time, he may have changed the outcome of a game with one knee. "Thats the best double play Ive seen from a second baseman," manager Dusty Baker said. "That was a game-saver, too. If he doesnt turn it, we could be in trouble. They had some dangerous guys coming up." The Reds won for the fifth time in seven games. Cincinnati is 14-6 at Great American Ball Park, the most home wins in the majors and its best start at home since the Reds went 15-5 in 1994. Milwaukee got solo homers from Jean Segura and Braun, but lost for the seventh time in eight games. Alfredo Simon (3-1) threw two innings in relief of rookie left-hander Tony Cingrani. Aroldis Chapman gave up a run on a wild pitch in the ninth while getting his eighth save in as many chances. Carlos Gomez went 0 for 4 and grounded into a double play, ending his hitting streak at a career-best 14 games. Neither Galllardo nor Cingrani lasted more than four innings on a wet night, testing both bullpens depth. Darrell Green Jersey. . Both were stingy, but Cincinnatis had a one-run lead to hold. Reds relievers allowed three hits and four walks in five innings. The Brewers gave up eight hits and nine walks. The Reds pulled ahead 2-0 in the third on Phillips two-out RBI single and Jay Bruces double off the glove of Norichika Aoki in right field. Bruce improved to .419 against Gallardo. Zack Cozarts RBI single in the fourth put the Reds up 3-2. Gallardo gave up five hits and five walks in his four innings, throwing 100 pitches. "Normally I try to take something positive out of every one I have, but theres nothing to take out of this one," Gallardo said. Cingrani has relied on his fastball to retire batters, getting a lot of strikeouts while piling up high pitch counts. Hes also given up a lot of homers -- six in five starts, tied with Bronson Arroyo for the team lead. Segura led off the fourth with a homer that barely eluded the top of Bruces glove in right field and bounced off the top of the wall before continuing into the stands. Braun also homered to right field on the next pitch, giving him eight overall and a season-high 11-game hitting streak. Cingrani lasted only four innings, giving up five hits and two walks while throwing 85 pitches. It was the third time in the Reds last four games that their starter lasted five innings or less. The Reds activated catcher Ryan Hanigan off the disabled list before the series opener. Hanigan, the Reds best defensive catcher, had been sidelined since April 21 by a strained left oblique. Hanigan had a pair of singles and made a diving catch behind the plate on Seguras sacrifice bunt attempt. NOTES: Steady rain fell through the early innings. .... The Reds designated C Corky Miller for assignment, opening a roster spot. ... OF Chris Heisey is expected to start a rehab assignment soon. Hes been sidelined since April 29 by a pulled right hamstring. ... Cingrani picked Aoki off first base in the third inning. Aoki reached in all five plate appearances. ...

TORONTO -- The Blue Jays are running out of time to fix their startling power outage in the AL Championship Series.A trip home to hitter-friendly Rogers Centre for Game 3 was expected to produce a revival against the Indians on Monday night. Instead, it was more of the same for the run-starved Blue Jays, who scratched out seven hits against seven Cleveland pitchers in a 4-2 loss that put Toronto in a 3-0 series hole.Even a starting pitching disaster for Cleveland in front of a raucous Toronto crowd couldnt jump-start the Jays. Trevor Bauer left after four batters and two outs when a stitched-up cut on his right pinkie finger began to bleed, so the Indians bullpen pulled off its most impressive October feat yet -- getting 25 outs against one of the ALs most feared lineups.Today was a bullpen day for them and they came through, said Russell Martin, who went 0 for 4 and struck out three times.The Blue Jays have yet to lead in the series. Game 4 is Tuesday afternoon, and the test only gets tougher with Cy Young Award candidate Corey Kluber scheduled to start for Cleveland.Weve got our work cut out for us, Toronto manager John Gibbons said. Thats an understatement.Martins slump began during the regular season -- the four-time All-Star catcher is 5 for 54 with two RBI dating to Sept. 25.Hes not alone in his struggles this series. Jose Bautista is 1 for 9, Edwin Encarnacion 2 for 11 and Troy Tulowitzki 1 for 11. That trio combined for 88 homers in the regular season but hasnt gotten one yet in the ALCS.The Blue Jays scored 759 runs in the regular season, fifth most in the AL, and were fourth in the majors with 221 home runs. After beating Baltimore in the wild-card game, Toronto pounded out 22 runs and hit eight homers in a three-game sweep of Texas in the Division Series.Those booming bats have gone ice cold since. Michael Saunders ended the teams 28-inning homerless streak with a leadoff shot in the second inning, but Toronto has produced just three runs in three ALCS losses. The Blue Jays have 17 hits inn the series, 13 of them singles. Austin Hedges Jersey. Its obviously tough, outfielder Kevin Pillar said. We got some big hits in the wild-card game and that kind of carried over to the Texas series. Its that simple. We just havent been able to execute when we need it.Seeking a spark, Gibbons shuffled his lineup for Game 3, moving Bautista into the leadoff spot and dropping Ezequiel Carrera to eighth. Bautista went 1 for 3 with a walk and a single, and Carrera had two hits.Saunders homer came off Dan Otero, Torontos first of the ALCS. Carrera tripled and scored in the fifth, giving the Blue Jays multiple extra-base hits in a game for the first time this series.Still, it wasnt enough to keep the Blue Jays from another offensive dud.Toronto struck out 25 times over the first two games and punched out nine times in Game 3. The Blue Jays again faltered when facing the back end of Clevelands bullpen, going 2 for 11 against Cody Allen and Andrew Miller. Toronto is 3 for 29 from the seventh inning on in the series so far.The Blue Jays did put runners at first and second with two outs in the seventh against Allen on Monday, but reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson ended the inning by lining out hard to left field on the first pitch, with Coco Crisp making a sliding catch.Toronto rallied from a 0-2 deficit to beat Texas in last years ALDS, then fell behind 0-2 to Kansas City in the ALCS before losing the series in six games.Weve had our backs up against the wall before, Saunders said. Were going to draw on that experience and come back for Game 4.Despite the slump, Gibbons believes the Blue Jays are due to erupt before the series concludes.It hasnt happened yet, Gibbons said. But Ive seen it too many times. Hopefully tomorrow is that day. Well see.Like his manager, Martin remained optimistic that Torontos drought was due to end.Maybe were just saving it for Games 4, 5, 6 and 7, he said. I hope so. ' ' '
