White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov.PITTSBURGH -- The last time Josh Harrison hit a walk-off homer, he was a high school senior in Cincinnati. The game was played in front of a few dozen people on a spring afternoon. Still the only homer of his prep career remains ingrained in Harrisons memory. Now its got company. The Pittsburgh Pirates utility infielder sent a fastball from Miami reliever Mike Dunn into the first row of seats in right-centre leading off the ninth, the improbable homer lifting the Pirates to a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night. "I knew it had a chance," Harrison said after his second home run of the season. "I knew it wasnt caught off the bat. I was running watching (Giancarlo) Stantons reaction. I knew he wasnt going to catch it. I saw him pull up and it didnt kick back, I knew it was gone." Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle sent Harrison out to leadoff the inning modestly hoping Harrison could find a way to get on base. Instead, Harrison provided another signature moment in a season that is starting to stockpile them for the first-place Pirates. A marvelous diving grab by centerfielder Andrew McCutchen with two on in the seventh saved two runs and reliever Vin Mazzaro narrowly escaped a bases-loaded jam moments when a liner from Jeff Mathis landed inches foul. Mathis eventually flied to left on a night Miami left 11 runners on base. Minutes later Harrison was getting the creampie to the face treatment. "Those are little things that happen that make you go Yeah, somethings going on," Hurdle said. "Theres no doubt the more feel good you get, the more you feel good." The NL Central-leading Pirates have won three straight to move a season-high 24 games over .500 (68-44). Dunn (2-3) bailed Chad Qualls after Qualls loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth. He struck out Pedro Alvarez and got Russell Martin to hit into a double play but couldnt get the best of Harrison, a bench player who has spent most of the season shuttling between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis. "Initially, I didnt think it was high enough to go out but it carried and it was a home run," Dunn said. "It was a good job on his part." Bryan Morris (5-4) pitched a perfect top of the ninth for the victory. Neil Walker had three hits for the Pirates. McCutchen had two hits, including a two-run double, for Pittsburgh. Donovan Solano went 3 for 5 for the Marlins but baseballs lowest scoring team left runners on base in six of the first seven innings. "We couldnt get that hit to give us a little breathing room," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. Pittsburghs Jeff Locke has been one of baseballs bigggest surprises, the 25-year-old soaring from fringe starter to All-Star. Luke Bolton Manchester City Jersey. Hes had trouble working deep into games since returning from his trip to New York for the midsummer classic, and for a while it appeared he was headed for another early exit after lasting just four innings against St. Louis in his last start. Miami turned three singles -- none of them sharply hit -- into a run in the second then added two more in the third behind four straight singles to start the inning. The Marlins, however, couldnt pile on and Locke eventually settled down. The left-hander allowed three runs on nine hits in 5 2-3 innings, walking three and striking out four as his ERA ticked up to 2.47. "There are lessons to be learned for him," Hurdle said of Locke. "Hes always got to be the predator and the aggressor. Were into August. Were into September. Everybody that gets that ball, youve got to be throwing aggressive punches off the mound with intent and conviction." Locke left two runners on in the sixth. He also left with a no decision as Mazzaro retired Ed Lucas with two runners on to end the inning. Henderson Alvarez handcuffed the Pirates in their previous meeting, limiting Pittsburgh to just two hits in six innings of a victory two weeks ago. The Pirates, however, briefly figured him out in the third. McCutchen doubled off the wall to drive in two runs and Pedro Alvarez followed with his first triple of the year to tie it. The Pirates never threatened against the Miami starter again, and Alvarez left after seven innings, giving up three runs on six hits, striking out six while not issuing a walk. That left it up to the bullpens and Pittsburghs "Shark Tank" continued its dominance. Mazzaro survived the seventh and the Marlins went meekly in the eighth or ninth before Harrison stepped to the plate. "Ive never been around a group of guys that fights this hard the entire game," Locke said. "We load the bases in the eighth and Pedro comes up and we dont score and you see who comes up with nobody on and walks off. Its funny how the game works like that." NOTES: Hurdle said LHP Francisco Liriano deserves to be in the NL Cy Young conversation. Liriano is 12-4 with a 2.02 ERA in 16 starts and was named the NL Player of the Week after picking up two victories between July 29-Aug. 4 ... The series continues on Wednesday when Pittsburghs Charlie Morton (3-3, 4.07 ERA) faces Tom Koehler (3-6, 4.34). Morton gave up five runs in six innings of a loss to St. Louis in his previous start. Koehler pitched six shutout innings against the Mets in a win last Thursday. ' ' ' 
Max Verstappen thinks it is too early to say Red Bull can win the Singapore Grand Prix until seeing how it performs during Friday practice. Custom Oakland Raiders Jerseys .?Red Bull appears to be the most favoured team coming to Singapore, a track it has excelled at in recent years regardless of its form across the season. By contrast, Mercedes suffered a big loss of form at last years race, while Ferraris performances this season highlight the fact it has lost ground in the development battle with Red Bull.However, Verstappen is refusing to get carried away with expectations ahead of the weekend.I think we know more tomorrow, Verstappen said when asked how Red Bull would fare. At the moment yes we have good hopes that we can be very competitive, but how well I dont know yet. But hopefully we are very competitive like for example in Monaco.We are all very motivated, but we are always motivated. Even in Monza when we knew that we dont have a chance to win, we still want to get the best possible result.The expectations around Red Bull in Singapore are supported by its pace in Monaco, where it was on a par with Mercedes and Verstappens teammate Daniel Ricciardo claimed pole. However Verstappen is refusing to pay attention to the hype coming into the weekend.We just focus on our own thing. People can write what they want. We have a good chance. I think if you look compared to last year the car definitely improved on our side... wait and see. It is difficult for me to say we will be the number one team because I havent driven. We will know how good we are tomorrow.When told Ricciardo has suggested a win was possible in his TV interviews, Verstappen replied: Hopefully a one-two then!

Sourav Ganguly, the chairman of BCCIs technical committee, has said his committee didnt make the decision to reschedule the two postponed Delhi fixtures. Gangulys claims contradict those of the BCCI, which had suggested the technical committee had taken the decision.The Technical Committee of the BCCI recognised the extraordinary circumstances prevailing in Delhi and decided to reschedule the Ranji Trophy 2016-17 fifth round matches between Hyderabad-Tripura and Gujarat-Bengal after the first two days of play were lost due to smog conditions in New Delhi, the BCCI had stated in its press release dated November 6.Ganguly, however, maintained the technical committee had little to do with the decision. This was not decided by technical committee. This was put forward to the technical committee by BCCI, he told ESPNcricinfo. However, when pointed out the BCCI couldnt have made the decision had his committee not agreed to it, Ganguly said: yes, true.While ESPNcricinfos attempts to contact BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke didnt yield a response, a board source said it was a collective decision to reschedule the matches and that due process was followed.The decision to reschedule the fixtures meant the Group A clash between Gujarat and Bengal and the Group C game between Hyderabad and Tripura would now be played four days after the completion of the final round, from December 15 to 18, in Visakhapatnam and Kolkata respectively.

The decision was done then only, at the start of the season, which was two or three matches old, he said. If you look at the start of the Ranji season there are some teams who started early, some teams who started late.

The scope and reach of NXT has reached dizzying heights the past two years. Mark Duper Womens Jersey . It was a big deal when the WWEs developmental brand ventured out of Florida for the first time, as part of the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, in March 2015. It reached yet another level when the NXT championship received a featured position on the WWE live special The Beast in the East, as Finn Bálor defeated Kevin Owens for the title, and NXT proclaimed its validity as a worthy third WWE brand when one of its TakeOver specials took place outside the confines of Full Sail University for the first time that August in Brooklyn.At this point, touring the United States has become a fairly regular occurrence for NXT superstars, with multiple tours throughout the east coast and midwest in the past 12 months, to say nothing of a TakeOver special in Dallas during WrestleMania weekend and a return to Brooklyn in August. They traveled to London for their first major standalone TakeOver special without WWE support in December and returned to the UK for a second tour the past summer.NXT is set to take yet another step in the final months of 2016. A nine-stop tour of Japan, Australia and New Zealand is set for December, with the roster set to make its longest trip to date. Before that can happen, however, theres the matter of another big announcement made in the past few days -- an NXT TakeOver special in Toronto.The night before Survivor Series emanates from the Air Canada Centre, NXT TakeOver hosts its second international WWE Network special in the very same building on Nov. 19. Its another major milestone for the brand, and it provides another platform for NXT to show that it can still thrive after losing a large chunk of the top of its roster in the WWE brand extension draft.A lot can happen over the next two months, but things have already started to take shape post-TakeOver Brooklyn II. Theres a lot to unpack from that show and a lot of questions to be answered in the coming weeks, but the exercise of trying to predict how the TakeOver: Toronto card will play out provides an opportunity to both highlight the best things going on in NXT and explore some of the greatest challenges they face going forward.The championsNXT champion Shinsuke NakamuraSince he signed with the WWE and subsequently joining the NXT roster, Nakamura hasnt lost a match. He has had numerous high-profile victories, including dispatching Sami Zayn, Austin Aries, Finn Balor and, most recently, Samoa Joe. But theres also Elias Samson, Tye Dillinger, Alex Riley, Blake and Murphy and Steve Cutler, all of whom he defeated one-on-one on an episode of NXT.It doesnt stop there. Nakamura has been a regular presence at NXTs live events, and he hasnt lost a singles match in any of those shows, either. He has wins over the likes of Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Tyler Breeze and Bobby Roode, to name a few. Even in tag matches, he has been on the losing side only twice (and in neither instance did he take a fall).If it isnt obvious from those numbers, Nakamura has been made to look like an utterly unstoppable force on his path to becoming champion. He might continue to look this strong for a while yet, but at some point, a believable challenger to his crown has to surface.The other big question surrounding Nakamura is his long-term health. The prevailing theory is that because of his style in the ring, his clock is ticking at 36 years old. Its clear that Nakamura has met and even exceeded expectations as far as crossover appeal -- his entrance in Brooklyn, with fans singing along to a song with no words, should be a strong indication of his connection to the WWE Universe -- but if the WWE hopes to get a substantial run with Nakamura on either Raw or SmackDown, they might have to accelerate his progress. It isnt just 14 years of wrestling miles on his body that the WWE should be concerned about. Nakamura isnt the only one on the roster dealing with that kind of damage, but his signature strong style and a series of MMA fights add further concern about his long-term durability.Likeliest challenger: Samoa JoeIts pretty clear that this story isnt quite over yet. After Nakamura defeated Samoa Joe in a brutal-looking match in Brooklyn, they slowed things by having Joe sidelined with a jaw injury. It shouldnt take long for this rivalry to reignite, with Joe having to receive his contractually obligated rematch, and with the scale and grandeur surrounding their first showdown, it makes little sense for this to happen anywhere other than a TakeOver main event.A two-month build to a rematch sounds just about right, with the original matchup not requiring a lot of buildup, having relied heavily on the excitement surrounding the novelty and excitement of the match. Its about time for Nakamura to have a more developed and nuanced rivalry, and the next few weeks of NXT should help both Joe and Nakamura as they further progress toward the main roster.Each of these guys could be Raw or SmackDown Live-ready by the time NXT TakeOver: Toronto rolls around, and the way this feud plays out could very well give us a hint as to whats next for each of them.NXT womens champion AsukaAs dominant as Nakamura has been since his April debut, Asuka has been on the same kind of run for twice as long. In addition to her pair of NXT womens championship match wins over Bayley, Asuka has beaten Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Emma, Eva Marie, Billie Kay, Cameron, Deonna Purrazzo, Santana Garrett and Aliyah in televised matches.The problem is she has been so good that she has run through all the serious contenders remaining in the NXT womens division. Jax, Bayley, Alexa Bliss and even Eva Marie are gone and off to Raw and SmackDown Live, and if this past weeks episode of NXT is any indication, there will be some growing pains as the next generation of women get themselves to a level where they could be considered serious contenders.Although age and wear-and-tear arent nearly as big of issues with Asuka, SmackDown Live could certainly use one more main event-level woman on its roster to contend for the brands new title. If its going to take a few months for there to be serious challenges to her title reign, Asuka can simply pick off also-rans one by one and bow out gracefully at or immediately following TakeOver: Toronto.Likeliest challenger: unclearIt could be Liv Morgan, who scored the victory on NXT, or it could be one of the longer-tenured women, such as Billie Kay or Peyton Royce. Perhaps it might be a wild card such as Daria Berenato or Mandy Rose.Then theres the possibility that it could be the one and only woman presently on the roster who has been built up as a serious competitor: the recently debuted Ember Moon. We didnt get to see much of her move set in her brief showdown with Billie Kay in Brooklyn, but her movement in the ring and finisher make her far and away the most compelling challenger.Theres only one problem with that: No matter how strong a competitor has been portrayed upon his or her entry into the company, a competitor always has to first fight through the challengers ahead in pursuit of the championship. Paige won a tournament, as did Charlotte, and Sasha Banks, Bayley and Asuka all fought their way up. Im not saying two months isnt enough time to build up Ember Moon, but it would be a dramatic departure from previous history.The solution here appears to be a multi-way match, most likely including some combination of Morgan, Billie Kay and Ember Moon. That would give Asuka a chance to look strong, requiring two or more women to challenge her dominance, and whether she wins or loses, Asuka would come out of the match having gained something, either an extra element of vulnerability and personality or a one-way ticket to the main roster.NXT tag team champions The RevivalYou could have heard a pin drop inside the Barclays Center at the conclusion of the NXT tag team championship match between The Revival and Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano. Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson had been pushed to the brink a great many times in that match, but in using the kind of underhanded tactics that led to their two championship reigns, The Revival was able to take the wind out of the sails of a collective crowd that was convinced the good guys were going to pull it out.Its a testament to just how good a heel tag team Dash and Dawson have been that they can elicit these kinds of reactions. In a world where the best and brightest bad guys are often cheered for how well they work, their move set and their personality, The Revival has been able to get crowds to genuinely dislike them while making all the teams they face look better.Likeliest challengers: DIY (Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano)As mentioned, the Brooklyn crowd was electric for this match, and with each progressive near-fall, the crowd hit a new plateau. It only seems right that they get one more chance on the biggest NXT stage to display how well these two teams can work together. Every indication -- from Garganos continued selling of his bum knee in the Cruiserweight Classic to Ciampas beatdown last week on NXT -- seems to indicate theyll get that shot.Even with both Ciampa and Gargano joining the cruiserweight division on Raw, its likely theyll split time between the two rosters for the foreseeable future. With teams such as the Authors of Pain and TM61 coming up the ranks, there are a few more factors working in their favor when it comes to the possibility of at least a transitional championship reign. It seems unlikely that the heir-apparent Authors of Pain would run through The Revival on their way to the titles, and TM61 has already been dispatched by both the Authors of Pain and The Revival.If DIY gets the victory this time, be ready for the roof to come off in Toronto.The futureThe championship matches arent all we should concern ourselves with. Most of these competitors have at least some grudging argument working in their favor, as far as a title shot in Toronto (or soon thereafter) goes, but each can benefit from the right kind of opponent under the bright lights of a show taking place during Survivor Series weekend.Hideo Itami vs. Austin AriesThe groundwork for this battle has been well-laid, with Itami hitting the Go-2-Sleep on Aries immediately following his victory in Brooklyn. If youre looking for the next contender for the NXT championship, youd do well to pay attention to this showdown, as the winner can seemingly punch his ticket to that match.We have yet to see the full complement of attacks from Itami since his return, and Aries is a wonderful counterpart, as both men look to put on a potential show-stealer in Toronto. Itami was on the verge of the main roster before he went down for more than a year because of injury, and its going to take him some time (and some powerful opponents) to prove that he can get back to where he was, from a physical standpoint.Bobby Roode vs. Tye DillingerThere was no way to know just how popular Roode would be upon his NXT debut, but between his swagger and his incredibly catchy entrance theme, the NXT faithful have immediately thrown their support behind Roode, despite his heelish tendencies. On the other end of the spectrum, Dillinger has been picking up some victories and some momentum since embracing the crowd and their enthusiastic 10 chants. Putting two guys as over as Roode and Dillinger into the ring at the same time could prove to be one of the more compelling scenarios for Toronto.Roode getting a victory seems inevitable here, but if Dillinger can put on a 15-plus-minute match and prove he can more than hang with the best NXT has to offer, he might finally gain some momentum toward a move up to the main roster. Its worth mentioning that fans and colleagues believe Dillinger has what it takes; a long list of current and former WWE competitors, including Kevin Owens and Cody Rhodes, have singled out the long-time developmental talent as being the total package.No Way Jose vs. Andrade Cien AlmasThis one takes a little more explaining, but hear me out. Despite being brought in as a good guy, Almas has had the unenviable task of facing off with two of the most beloved bad guys NXT has to offer to begin his career. First it was Dillinger, with fans reactions immediately turning against him. Then Almas took on Roode at TakeOver: Brooklyn II, and despite an impressive performance, he never really had a chance to get the fans behind him.Its time to take that organic reaction and turn it into a positive for Almas by making him the bad guy he is so naturally suited to be. In his previous run as La Sombra in CMLL and New Japan, Almas was able to draw genuine anger and disdain from the crowd, and both his moves and his swagger tend to give him a leg up in that regard.Jose has far exceeded expectations since his over-the-top introduction to NXT, and he put on a great showing in defeat against Aries in Brooklyn. Hed play the perfect foil for either the culmination of a heel turn for Almas or the final exclamation point to such a move. Mark Clayton Womens Jersey . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Minkah Fitzpatrick Womens Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. http://www.authenticdolphinspro.com/ . Its 1987 and a Brazilian playmaker, known as Mirandinha, is being paraded around St James Park to the passionate Newcastle fans. Former NFL player Joe McKnight was shot to death Thursday following an argument at an intersection with another motorist.Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said the incident involving McKnight happened about 2:43 p.m. Thursday in Terrytown, a suburb of New Orleans.The 28-year-old running back was standing outside his car when he was shot by Ronald Gasser, 54, Normand said during a news conference at the scene of the shooting.The only thing we know right now, everything else is conjecture, is that Mr. Gasser did in fact shoot Mr. McKnight, Normand said.McKnight is the second former NFL player this year to die in the New Orleans area as a result of a possible road-rage incident. Former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith was killed in April in a shooting that was sparked over a traffic altercation.Norman said investigators have Gasser in custody and hes being questioned, along with a number of witnesses. Col. John Fortunato, a sheriffs office spokesman, said they anticipate charging Gasser, but with what has not yet been determined.We will release additional details when we get through with the interviews, Normand said.Normand said Gasser, whose hometown was not immediately released, stayed at the scene and relinquished his weapon to responding officers.The sheriff said he did not know where the incident started, but noted that McKnight was standing outside his vehicle when he was shot. He did not release any details on the number of times McKnight was shot, saying the coroners office would do so.Normand said no gun was found outside either vehicle, but they had not searched the cars and wont do so until a search warrant has been obtained.McKnight played three seasons for the New York Jets and one with the Kansas City Chiefs. He spent this season in the Canadian Football League, playing two games for the Edmonton Eskimos and three for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He ran for 150 yards against Toronto on Oct. 15 in his Saskatchewan debut.We send our deepest sympathies to Joes family, friends, and all those impacted by this tragedy, Roughriders general manager and coach Chris Jones said in a statement.McKnight was considered the No. 1 running back recruit in the country when he came out of John Curtis Christian School in Louisiana in 2006 and signed with the University of Southern California, where he played under Pete Carroll. With his running and catching skills, McKnight was often compared to do-it-all running back Reggie Bush, a USC star who was the No. Jason Taylor Dolphins Jersey. 2 overall pick by New Orleans in the 2006 draft.Bush took to Twitter to offer his condolences: RIP my brother Joe McKnight, he posted, this one hurts bad.For a life to be lost so senselessly is just beyond description, said JT Curtis, McKnights high school coach, whos been head coach there for nearly five decades. Right now its pretty devastating.He was just a good kid, the coach added.After a sometimes-spectacular college career in which he ran for 2,213 yards and 13 touchdowns and caught 66 passes for 542 yards and two scores in three seasons, McKnight was drafted by the Jets in the fourth round in 2010.His NFL career got off to a shaky start, marked by his first rookie camp practice in which he dropped a few passes, had both calves cramp up and later vomited on the side of the field because of nerves and lack of conditioning. McKnight saw limited action as a rookie, but started the regular-season finale and rushed for 158 yards on 32 carries.McKnight assumed the role as the Jets primary kick returner in 2011, and led the NFL with a 31.6 yard kickoff return average that season. That included a franchise-record 107-yarder in 2011 against Baltimore that also stands as the teams longest play.He was released by the Jets as part of their final cuts after training camp in 2013 and spent that season out of football. McKnight signed with Kansas City in January 2014 and had two touchdown catches in a game for the Chiefs early that season before tearing his Achilles tendon during a practice and missing the rest of the year.Several of McKnights former teammates and friends took to social media to express shock and sadness at the news, and to offer condolences to his family.The Jets posted a photo of McKnight with the words Joe McKnight 1988-2016 on it on their official Twitter account. Rest in peace, Joe McKnight, the team said. Our thoughts and condolences are with his loved ones.Former Jets teammate Antonio Cromartie wrote on Twitter: Just got a message saying my former teammate Joe McKnight was killed today.

He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4.NEW YORK -- In a revolving-door season, Joe Girardi is grateful he has to spend little time worrying about Hiroki Kuroda. There are those moments, though, that the New York Yankees manager has to remind himself the Japanese ace is not one of the many young faces in his clubhouse. Kuroda gave another steady performance Friday night, pitching two-hit ball for eight dominant innings and leading the Yankees to one more victory over Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-0 to end a two-game skid. "One thing we do pay attention to is some of his pitch counts because hes not 25 either, but he goes out there and sometimes he acts like he is," Girardi said. "So we have to make sure we dont get confused and forget how old he is and that we take care of him; were responsible with him and make sure he can bounce back every start because thats what you want." And what they desperately need right now. With lefty Andy Pettitte joining fellow starter Ivan Nova on to the disabled list earlier Friday, two of the 13 pinstriped players sidelined with injuries this season, the Yankees cant take any risks with Kuroda. And that is why Girardi didnt hesitate to lift the 38-year-old after the eighth and 109 pitches. Kuroda (6-2) struck out five and walked one in cooling off a club that had scored 33 runs in its previous three games and had won a season-high four in a row. The Yankees most consistent starter since the start of last season, Kuroda won for the fourth time in five starts. He is 2-0 in three starts against the Blue Jays this year -- matching up each time against Buehrle (1-3) -- allowing four runs in 21 1-3 innings. Preston Claiborne finished the four-hitter. "In the first inning I knew this was going to be a good night for us," rookie catcher Austin Romine said. Romine and Brett Gardner had run-scoring hits, Robinson Cano hit an RBI grounder and Jayson Nix had two sacrifice flies in dropping Buehrle to 1-10 in 15 starts against the Yankees. The left-hander hasnt beaten New York since April 10, 2004, when he was with the Chicago White Sox. The AL East-leading Yankees defeated last-place Toronto for the fifth straight time this season in New York and for the seventh time in eight games overall. Kuroda gave up a leadoff double to Melky Cabrera and didnt allow another hit until Edwin Encarnacions one-out single in the seventh. Between the two hits, Kuroda faced the minimum, picking ooff Munenori Kawasaki after a third-inning walk. Marcus Allen Youth Jersey. . "All my pitches were pretty good," Kuroda said. "Felt good, especially in the first inning when I struck out (Jose) Bautista and Encarnacion." Kuroda helped himself get out of the first inning unscathed by snaring J.P. Arencibias liner. Fans cheered and laughed at the fortunate catch when the replay of Kuroda sticking out his glove for the ball was shown on the video board in centre field. Kuroda also made a nice play for the first out of the second, bounding off the mound to field Adam Linds tapper. Gardner led off the bottom of the first with a triple and scored on Canos grounder to second. Buehrle settled down, allowing only Nixs third-inning walk before rookie David Adams singled leading off the fifth. "When you run into hot pitching like that, you try to shut them down as long as you can," Buehrle said. Romine singled with one out and Gardner walked to load the bases before Nixs fly to left made it 2-0. Aaron Loup relieved Buehrle after the first three batters in the seventh had hits, including an RBI double by Romine. Gardner slapped an opposite-field single past diving third baseman Brett Lawrie with the infield in, and Nix followed with a long fly to centre that upped the lead to five runs. "Buehrle was rolling along, too," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He had only given up two runs and was matching (Kuroda) there and kept us in the game, and then they exploded on us late there. But I thought he did a nice job as well." Buehrle yielded five runs and six hits in six-plus innings. He walked three and struck out four.

White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov.PITTSBURGH -- The last time Josh Harrison hit a walk-off homer, he was a high school senior in Cincinnati. The game was played in front of a few dozen people on a spring afternoon. Still the only homer of his prep career remains ingrained in Harrisons memory. Now its got company. The Pittsburgh Pirates utility infielder sent a fastball from Miami reliever Mike Dunn into the first row of seats in right-centre leading off the ninth, the improbable homer lifting the Pirates to a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night. "I knew it had a chance," Harrison said after his second home run of the season. "I knew it wasnt caught off the bat. I was running watching (Giancarlo) Stantons reaction. I knew he wasnt going to catch it. I saw him pull up and it didnt kick back, I knew it was gone." Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle sent Harrison out to leadoff the inning modestly hoping Harrison could find a way to get on base. Instead, Harrison provided another signature moment in a season that is starting to stockpile them for the first-place Pirates. A marvelous diving grab by centerfielder Andrew McCutchen with two on in the seventh saved two runs and reliever Vin Mazzaro narrowly escaped a bases-loaded jam moments when a liner from Jeff Mathis landed inches foul. Mathis eventually flied to left on a night Miami left 11 runners on base. Minutes later Harrison was getting the creampie to the face treatment. "Those are little things that happen that make you go Yeah, somethings going on," Hurdle said. "Theres no doubt the more feel good you get, the more you feel good." The NL Central-leading Pirates have won three straight to move a season-high 24 games over .500 (68-44). Dunn (2-3) bailed Chad Qualls after Qualls loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth. He struck out Pedro Alvarez and got Russell Martin to hit into a double play but couldnt get the best of Harrison, a bench player who has spent most of the season shuttling between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis. "Initially, I didnt think it was high enough to go out but it carried and it was a home run," Dunn said. "It was a good job on his part." Bryan Morris (5-4) pitched a perfect top of the ninth for the victory. Neil Walker had three hits for the Pirates. McCutchen had two hits, including a two-run double, for Pittsburgh. Donovan Solano went 3 for 5 for the Marlins but baseballs lowest scoring team left runners on base in six of the first seven innings. "We couldnt get that hit to give us a little breathing room," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. Pittsburghs Jeff Locke has been one of baseballs bigggest surprises, the 25-year-old soaring from fringe starter to All-Star. Luke Bolton Manchester City Jersey. Hes had trouble working deep into games since returning from his trip to New York for the midsummer classic, and for a while it appeared he was headed for another early exit after lasting just four innings against St. Louis in his last start. Miami turned three singles -- none of them sharply hit -- into a run in the second then added two more in the third behind four straight singles to start the inning. The Marlins, however, couldnt pile on and Locke eventually settled down. The left-hander allowed three runs on nine hits in 5 2-3 innings, walking three and striking out four as his ERA ticked up to 2.47. "There are lessons to be learned for him," Hurdle said of Locke. "Hes always got to be the predator and the aggressor. Were into August. Were into September. Everybody that gets that ball, youve got to be throwing aggressive punches off the mound with intent and conviction." Locke left two runners on in the sixth. He also left with a no decision as Mazzaro retired Ed Lucas with two runners on to end the inning. Henderson Alvarez handcuffed the Pirates in their previous meeting, limiting Pittsburgh to just two hits in six innings of a victory two weeks ago. The Pirates, however, briefly figured him out in the third. McCutchen doubled off the wall to drive in two runs and Pedro Alvarez followed with his first triple of the year to tie it. The Pirates never threatened against the Miami starter again, and Alvarez left after seven innings, giving up three runs on six hits, striking out six while not issuing a walk. That left it up to the bullpens and Pittsburghs "Shark Tank" continued its dominance. Mazzaro survived the seventh and the Marlins went meekly in the eighth or ninth before Harrison stepped to the plate. "Ive never been around a group of guys that fights this hard the entire game," Locke said. "We load the bases in the eighth and Pedro comes up and we dont score and you see who comes up with nobody on and walks off. Its funny how the game works like that." NOTES: Hurdle said LHP Francisco Liriano deserves to be in the NL Cy Young conversation. Liriano is 12-4 with a 2.02 ERA in 16 starts and was named the NL Player of the Week after picking up two victories between July 29-Aug. 4 ... The series continues on Wednesday when Pittsburghs Charlie Morton (3-3, 4.07 ERA) faces Tom Koehler (3-6, 4.34). Morton gave up five runs in six innings of a loss to St. Louis in his previous start.

Adrian Wilson Womens Jersey . Victoria piled on 417 and a three-wicket over from spinner Jon Holland shortly before stumps put them well on the way to a possible innings win, with Queensland wobbling at 4 for 50, still 230 shy of making Victoria bat again.Marnus Labuschagne was on 17 and Michael Neser had made 9, but the innings had started disastrously for Queensland after Joe Burns was lbw to Scott Boland for 7. Holland, who had picked up four wickets in the first innings, came on for his first over of the second innings and promptly removed Charlie Hemphrey, Sam Heazlett and Peter Forrest to begin with a triple-wicket maiden.The day could hardly have gone any better for Victoria, who began the morning at 5 for 153 with Maxwell and White at the crease. Their partnership grew to 132 before Maxwell was caught behind off Neser, but he had done more than enough to justify his selection after controversially being left out of Victorias Shield side last week, to the displeasure of the national selectors.White began to run out of partners and brought up his hundred with a six, his third century of the domestic season, following on from two in the Matador Cup.

DENVER -- On any other day, Nolan Arenados grand slam wouldve drawn all the attention.The kid on the mound stole some of his thunder. German Marquezs performance was just that electric.Marquez pitched five solid innings for his first major league win and the Colorado Rockies slowed the St. Louis Cardinals playoff chase with an 11-1 victory on Wednesday.A great pitching performance, manager Walt Weiss said. Its easy -- easy velocity. Very effortless.This was a memorable afternoon for Marquez (1-0), who made his first big league start after three appearances out of the bullpen. The right-hander with the 95 mph fastball allowed one run and struck out three.At 21 years, 212 days, Marquez was the second-youngest pitcher in Rockies history to earn his first win, the team announced. The youngest was Jamey Wright (21-206).He set the tone and pitched a good game, Arenado said.The sweet-swinging third baseman certainly did his part. Arenado broke open the game in the second with his NL-leading 39th homer of the season. His fourth career slam made it 6-1.With a major league-best 128 RBI, Arenado is two away from matching his career high set a season ago.Whatever I do for the rest of the year, Ill be happy with, Arenado said. I definitely want to drive in more runs.St. Louis starter Luke Weaver (1-4) was roughed up by the Rockies, surrendering seven hits and six runs in two innings. Before this game, the right-hander had allowed 12 earned runs in his last seven starts combined.The Cardinals, who had won four in a row, began the day tied with New York and San Francisco atop the NL wild-card standings. The Mets and Giants both played later.The hard-throwing Marquez was acquireed in January as part of the deal that sent outfielder Corey Dickerson to Tampa Bay. Pat Tillman Cardinals Jersey. Marquez pitched a majority of the season for Double-A Hartford, where he was chosen as the pitcher of the year in the Eastern League.A lot of people told me that the ball can fly (at Coors Field), Marquez said. But they have to hit.Marquez worked his way out of several dicey situations against the best road team in baseball. He allowed his only run in the second, when Jeremy Hazelbaker led off with a double and later scored on Kolten Wongs sacrifice fly.The Cardinals took two of three from Colorado during a series in which their starting pitchers were brilliant at the plate.
