ST. Adidas Ultra Boost Canada . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Baltimore Orioles got on base and Manny Machado drove them in.Machado capped a six-run fourth inning with a grand slam off Jake Odorizzi, leading the Orioles over the Tampa Bay Rays 11-2 on Tuesday night.Guys are getting on base, hitting singles, doubles and doing the little things to give us an opportunity to have that big inning, said Machado, who drove in a fifth run with a single in the eighth. I think people are overlooking how well were executing and hitting in key situations. Things are starting to click for us. Its been fun the last couple of days.Chris Davis and Adam Jones also homered for the Orioles, who entered the day tied for the second wild card and two games behind AL East-leading Toronto, which lost to the New York Yankees.Machados homer was his 34th this season, while Davis got his 35th and Jones got his 26th.When they start talking about MVP, theyve got to start talking about him, too, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of Machado, who has 90 RBI and 48 multihit games.Odorizzi (9-6) lost for the first time in 10 starts since the All-Star break, giving up seven runs, six hits and three walks over four innings. Machados slam was set up by two walks, a hit batter and J.J. Hardys two-run double.I think you could tell fairly early on that Odo didnt quite have all of his weapons tonight, said Rays manager Kevin Cash. Weve seen him so good here as of late. Tonight, he just didnt have the best feel for the changeup.Yovani Gallardo (5-7) pitched five innings for Baltimore, giving up two runs (one earned) and five hits while striking out five.Jones eighth-inning homer was the Orioles major league-leading 218th of the season, moving them ahead of last years team for second-most ever among Baltimore teams. The 1996 Orioles set the club record with 257.Logan Forsythe led off the Rays first with his 18th home run, and Kevin Kiermaier extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single.Other than not going deeper in the ballgame, I feel pretty good about it, said Gallardo, who won for the second time in his last 13 starts. After giving up that home run to start the ballgame, I was able to make pitches whenever I had to.DAVIS LEAVES GAME EARLYDavis left in the fifth inning with what Showalter described as a sore left palm. Its something hes had for a long time, something he doesnt really like talking about, said Showalter, who will re-evaluate the situation before Wednesdays game.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: RHP Chris Tillman, who has missed three starts with right shoulder bursitis, will throw a bullpen session in hopes of starting Sundays game at Detroit. Showalter said he will forego a decision on any rotation changes until he is satisfied the 15-game winner is both healthy and effective.Rays: 3B Evan Longoria, hit on the right hand by a pitched ball Monday, started. Its sore, Longoria said. Its OK.NEW VISIONLongoria was surprised at the timing of hitting coach Derek Sheltons firing on Tuesday.As much as I dont like to see Shelty go, Im on board with them making a change and wanting to go in a different direction, Longoria said.Rays minor league hitting coordinator Chad Mottola replaced Shelton.It gives Chad a few extra weeks to get to know our hitters better, Silverman said.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Dylan Bundy will start Wednesdays series finale. He is 5-3 in eight starts since giving up three home runs in a 5-2 loss at Tropicana Filed on July 17.Rays: LHP Drew Smyly is 4-1 lifetime against the Orioles, but gave up eight runs, including a first-inning grand slam, to Davis in a 12-5 loss at Baltimore on June 26.

To stay in contention in the NFC North -- and?in the Super Bowl race -- the Minnesota Vikings made the bold move of trading for quarterback Sam Bradford. air max 1 kaufen outlet .The price was steep -- a first-round pick next year and a conditional fourth-round pick?in 2018 -- but the move was needed.

Lets break them down:WinnersSam Bradford, QB, Minnesota Vikings: His situation is so much better in Minnesota.

The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. http://www.airmax1outlet.ch/ . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. Mahbub Ali Zaki was filled with pride as he watched Taskin Ahmed bowl in the third ODI against Afghanistan. He was comforted by how the fast bowler, playing his first international series since his bowling action was cleared by the ICC, was ticking through his check-list smoothly, and looked prepared for bigger battles in the coming weeks.I am really proud of him, Zaki says, four days after Taskin finished as the joint highest wicket-taker in the ODI series. I helped a guy who was facing a major threat in his international career come back to where he belongs, after correcting his suspect bowling action. He was delivering the bouncer and yorker at high speed.I think we didnt have to make too many changes to his action but certainly he looked like a refreshed bowler. I didnt see any speedgun in the Afghanistan series but Taskin later told me that he felt that he was bowling at his old speeds.The 50-year old Zaki is a former fast bowler who is now employed by the BCB as a specialist bowling coach. In April this year he was asked by Heath Streak, Bangladeshs bowling coach at the time, to record videos of Taskins action while Streak was away with the IPL side Gujarat Lions. After Streak quit the Bangladesh job, Taskins rehabilitation had to be monitored solely by Zaki.Here was Bangladeshs most promising fast bowler since Mashrafe Mortaza and Talha Jubair, and it was up to little-known Zaki to get him ready for his second independent assessment. Zaki now says he knew that Taskin was a special bowler who needed to be dealt with differently.I quickly understood that I was dealing with a young fast bowler, he says. If I took him as a general example among such bowlers then I would have to make lots of biomechanical changes to his action. Taskin the cricketer isnt the same without his pace and bounce, so we focused on keeping his pace while making those subtle adjustments to his action.To the naked eye, there is hardly any discernible change to how he runs in and bowls.The point where his action differs from most other fast bowlers is when he loads up, when he brings his arm up just as he lands on his back foot prior to his delivery stride. Here, his wrist points towards midwicket (to the right-hand batsman) rather than down the pitch.Now, this unusual positioning of his wrist is possibly even more pronounced, but the rest of his action remains more or less what it was earlier. Footage confirms that Taskins load-up remains consistent with how it was even as far back in 2012, when he bowled in the nets in front of Bangladesh coach Shane Jurgensen and Academy head Richard McInnes, or a few months later when he played his first BPL match, or even when he made his international debut two years later.Coaches love a consistent bowling action, especially if it works for the bowler. Taskin was certainly one of Jurgensens favourites, and he pushed for the fast bowlers debut during the 2014 World T20. After Jurgensen left the Bangladesh job, Taskins ODI debut produced a five-wicket haul and he didnt look back, performing well until the 2016 World T20 when he was reported for a suspect action after Bangladeshs first match.Since being reported in March, Taskin has unddergone two independent bowling-action assessments in Chennai and Brisbane, the latter clearing him to bowl again in international cricket. air max 1 kaufen schweiz. The report obtained by ESPNcricinfo says that Taskin did not go past an average of five degrees, upon ball release, in an over at the Brisbane assessment. Out of the 24 deliveries he bowled, only four went up to seven degrees while some others touched six degrees.Arafat Sunny, who was reported and suspended at the same time as Taskin, also underwent a reassessment in Brisbane. His highest average for ball release in an over was 11 degrees, and the lowest was six degrees.If not among all current bowlers, Taskinss action is being regarded as technically one of the better bowling actions among bowlers who have been reported for suspect actions or suspended for illegal actions.To get to this point, where the straightening of his elbow is well within the prescribed 15-degree limit, Taskin required minor changes to be ironed into his action. Zaki says keeping his pace intact was the major challenge. To record what he was doing, he used eight different camera angles to ensure everything was captured and he had the necessary data.It was certainly one of the most challenging projects of my coaching career, Zaki says. I was trying to help a kid whose career was on the line. My initial target was to take him back to his old rhythm, which was to ensure that he bowls between 138 to 148kph. We couldnt afford to lose his pace.I recorded his action from eight angles in total and only after I was totally convinced from one of the angles did I move to the next one. The angles were the usual four TV camera angles and then I did some from 45 and 35 degrees. I also used a fire-service ladder to get an overhead shot of his action. I recorded him every week from mid-April to the end of August.Next, Zaki installed large mirrors to provide Taskin a personal perspective whenever he had some downtime at the Shere Bangla National Stadium or at home.Inside the dressing room where the coaches often sit, I set up a nine-foot mirror for Taskin, Zaki says. I did a similar thing in his home where I put up a 6x4 foot mirror so that he can try out his action in front of it. We tried the action thousands of times.The work put in by Taskin has certainly been praised by those who saw him from April to August, when he also helped Abahani Limited to their 18th Dhaka Premier League title. But Zakis efforts shouldnt go unnoticed.Zaki replicated what Mohammad Salahuddin did with Abdur Razzak when he was suspended from December 1, 2008 to March 12, 2009. Salahuddin is regarded as one of the most technically sound coaches in Bangladesh. Now, given Zakis success with Taskin, the BCB should use him regularly to spot defects in the actions of a number of bowlers in domestic cricket.My eyes have become experienced now with Taskins action, Zaki says. When he bowled towards the end of the third ODI against Afghanistan, I felt that he was at his best. His action didnt have any chinks whatsoever. It was a very fair action. ' ' '

WASHINGTON -- House Republicans on Thursday called for an independent review of allegations that the National Football League sought to improperly influence a government study into the link between football and brain disease. Clearance Shoes Canada .In a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general, GOP leaders of the Energy and Commerce Committee said that a thorough assessment is needed to ensure the integrity of the process for awarding research grants.The committees top Democrat said in May the NFL tried to strong-arm the National Institutes of Health into taking the project away from a prominent researcher that the league believed was biased.But the committees chairman, Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, and other GOP members of panel said they dont have all the facts needed to reach conclusions. All the attention generated by claims the NFL tried to sway the study have tarnished the reputations of leading researchers into traumatic brain injuries and other medical experts, they said in the 21-page letter to the departments inspector general, Daniel Levinson.The lawmakers also said that based on the information they have, the institutes may have contributed to the breakdown of the structures and processes that exist to preserve the integrity of NIH research.The NFL said in a statement that it looks forward to cooperating with the inspector general. The NFL has never wavered in its commitment to advance the science and understanding of concussions and traumatic brain injuries, the league said.Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., initiated an investigation after ESPN reported in December that the league had agreed to donate $30 million to the NIH to fund brain research. But the league backed out after the institutes went ahead with a $16 million grant to Boston University researcher Robert Stern, according to the sports networks report.Stern is a leading expert on the link between football and brain diseases such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy. He also filed a declaration opposing a settlement between the NFL and former players, fearing that deserving players would not be compensated.The NFLs critics say the league has downplayed the link between football and brain damage, alleging that an NFL committee on brain injury had ignored or minimized the link between repetitive head trauma and brain damage.Pallone said his probe confirmed the NFL inappropriately attempted to use its unrestricted gift as leverage to steer funding away from one of its critics, Pallone said.The NFL denied Pallones findings. The league at the time acknowledged it had raised concerns about the study and a potential conflict of interest involving Stern, but said it had communicated those concerns through appropriate channels.The league said in the statement Thursday that its $30 million commitment was never in doubt and said its unfortunate that the allegations have distracted attention from the broader goal of further traumatic brain injury science.Upton and other Republicans said if the NFL acted inappropriately, then NIH not only failed to identify and address this behavior, but rather encouraged ongoing discussion, thus creating a perception that the league had input on the use of (research) funds.There is little evidence to suggest, Upton and his colleagues wrote, that anyone affiliated with the NFL advocated on behalf of a specific research team or grant proposal.---Follow Richard Lardner on Twitter: http://twitter.com/rplardner Cheap Ecco Shoes Canada .

BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona defeated Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-0 to match the 20-goal scoring record in the group stage of the Champions League, but Lionel Messi fell short of equaling Cristiano Ronaldos 11-goal mark in the first phase of the tournament.Messis 10th goal and Arda Turans hat trick helped Barcelona reach the 20 goals in this seasons group stage, a feat achieved only three other times in the past, including by the Catalan club in 2011-12.Real Madrid did it in 2013-14 and Manchester United in 1998-99. Borussia Dortmund needs one goal in its game against Madrid on Wednesday in Spain to match the record.All Group C positions had already been decided ahead of Tuesdays final round. Barcelona finished with 15 points, six more than Manchester City, which drew 1-1 with Celtic in England. Moenchengladbach ended third with five points, two more than winless Celtic.The team played well the entire match, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. The players were quick and precise. I congratulate them.Messi scored in the 16th minute at Camp Nou after a one-two with Turan inside the Moenchengladbach area. The Argentine slid behind the defenders and fired home a low left-foot shot after receiving Turans return pass.Messi had a great chance to match Ronaldos record in the 73rd, but his close-range header was brilliantly saved on the line by goalkeeper Yann Sommer.Turan scored in the 50th, 53rd and 67th minutes to help the Catalan club endd a three-game winless streak.

It conceded a 90th-minute equalizer in a 1-1 home draw against Real Madrid in the Spanish league on Saturday.According to UEFAs statistics, Barcelona made a whopping 1,022 passing attempts on Tuesday, completing 939 of them.Barcelona were very Barcelona-esque, Moenchengladbach coach Andre Schubert said. We had too much respect for them and didnt play with enough courage.Barcelona was without forward Neymar and midfielder Ivan Rakitic because of suspensions.Luis Enrique also rested striker Luis Suarez, giving a chance to recently signed forward Paco Alcacer, who has been criticized by Barcelona fans for his lackluster performances.Ronaldo scored 11 goals last year became the first player to reach double figures in the six games of the group stage. Messi played in only five matches for Barcelona this season, but he twice scored hat tricks -- in the home games against Celtic and Manchester City. He also netted once against City in Manchester and twice against Celtic in Glasgow.Ronaldo on Wednesday will try to become the first player to score 100 goals in European competitions. He is two short of the milestone heading into the game against Borussia Dortmund at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.Messi now has 93 goals overall in the Champions League, two less than Ronaldo. ' ' '

Thats hard, especially in pick and roll coverage. Sometimes hes switching and sometimes hes in normal coverage, His IQ has helped him with the adjustment.Like every front line player for the Thunder, Grant will see time guarding Davis. Because he can score from all over the court, it is going to put tremendous pressure on Oklahoma Citys defense to keep him from putting up big numbers on both ends of the court.Its a little bit of everything, Anthony Morrow said of the Thunder defense. Overall its just guys paying attention to detail and just sticking with the process overall. Every game is different, but we understand that when were on the same page, everybody is working towards that same goal defensively and the defense is on a string, thats when we know were at our best.

USA Today released its annual coach salary database Wednesday, which led off with Michigans Jim Harbaugh earning just north of $9 million. Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China . Its a staggering salary for a college football coach, but another set of numbers might be just as revealing: the buyouts.Some coaches whom fans are grumbling about might be saved by buyouts, since its wont be cheap to part ways after the 2016 season. Its important to note that most buyouts can be mitigated and since most fired coaches get new jobs, the overall amount owed to them gets reduced over time. So the worst situation is paying a big buyout to someone who never lands another seven-figure coaching job.With that in mind, here are 10 potentially tricky buyout situations for schools, based on the data USA Today compiled from publicly available contracts. Authentic Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap . 8 Kansas to a 64-63 win over Texas Tech on Tuesday night.

Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. http://www.jerseysmlbcheap.com/ . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. Nothing but painRohit Sharma had used his backfoot cover drive to bully a reasonably good ball to the boundary. There was barely any swing. There was no reason not to try it again. At the start of the eighth over, he got in position for the shot again, but this time Trent Boult, from around the wicket, got the ball to straighten just enough to snatch the edge through to the wicketkeeper. It was a beautiful ball, but that matters little to the dismissed batsman. Less so when he suddenly cramps up. Rohit was turning back to see if the catch would be taken when he felt something in his left bicep. The arm went completely limp. He was left hunched over for several moments, clutching it, and needed the physio to tend to it before he could walk off.Avoiding painLately, umpire Bruce Oxenford has been turning up for limited-overs matches with a shield on his arm. He crosses his arms in front of his chest as he takes his stance at the bowlers end, the shield in place to deflect the ball away from his face. It turned out that the extra protection would have served his partner well too. In the seventh over, Tom Latham drilled the ball down the ground, and fear of being hit made umpire Anil Chaudhary dash frantically to his right. He was on one foot, the other in the air, looking comically ungainly. Umesh Yadav, the bowler, was able to get a hand on the ball and send it off course. But Chaudhary gestured immediately to his partner, his elbow moving up to his face, as if he were saying, I should get a shield too. Could have avoided pain - and looked cool to boot.Only, when Oxenford had the chance to use the shield, he couldnt act quickly enough. Corey Andersons throw from the deeep at the bowlers end headed straight at him and he was struck on the box. Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Store. .The Superman dive that went in vainManish Pandey seemed to have done enough to secure a couple of runs. Hed played the ball softly, placed the ball to deep midwickets right, and the fielder there was Mitchell Santner, who is left-handed and had to run around the ball. He did so with remarkable swiftness. Then came the throw which was brutally flat. Luke Ronchi had positioned himself between the stumps and the throw, but it came to him on the half-volley, which is hard to collect because you have to keep your eyes on the ball when there is a real chance it might bounce up and hit you. But in one fluid motion, he collected the ball and swung it back to catch Pandey short despite his full-length dive.And the fast bowlers disdainNew Zealand were floundering in the final overs of their innings, and they could have done with some good, old-fashioned Tim Southee slogs. He had, after all, made his maiden fifty in his 100th ODI in Dharamsala. Except, in Delhi, he was bowled second ball by a superb yorker from Jasprit Bumrah. It was quick. It cramped the batsman for room. And it hit the base of off stump.The second innings provided opportunity for round two. And this time, the game was at stake. It was the final over. India needed 10 to win. New Zealand needed a wicket. Bumrah was given the strike in the third ball and Southee revved up. The ball curved into the right-hander at pace, sank below the bat and crashed into middle stump to seal New Zealands victory. ' ' '

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Virginia Thrasher went through a three-week spring whirlwind, winning three NCAA titles and a spot on the U. Sale Air Jordan 1 NZ .S. Olympic Shooting team.The precocious 19-year-old closed out the summer with her biggest surprise yet.Keeping her nerve on sports biggest stage, Thrasher on Saturday earned the first gold medal of the Rio Olympics, outlasting two-time gold medalist Du Li to capture the womens 10-meter air rifle title.This is beyond my wildest dreams, Thrasher said. I knew it was a realistic expectation for me to get into the finals and once you get into the finals, anything can happen. For me, this year has been incredible.Thrasher had a quick rise to the top.A figure skater growing up, she switched sports five years ago after a hunting trip with her family. Thrasher killed a deer with her first shot of her first hunting trip and has continued to hit the mark wherever shes gone.Thrasher was not expected to be among the top five scorers -- all that counts in NCAA competition -- at shooting powerhouse West Virginia, yet got better as the season progressed. She became the first freshman to win both NCAA rifle titles and led the Mountaineers to the team championship.Less than a month later, Thrasher won the U.S. Olympic Trials, earning a spot in Rio.She didnt flinch at the sports brightest spotlight -- or an air horn.Though not expected to be a medal contender, Thrasher finished a spot behind fellow American Sarah Scherer at sixth in qualifying to make the eight-person final.She opened the elimination finals -- a new format in this years Olympics -- with a perfect 10.9 and was in the lead after Scherer became the first shooter knocked out.Thrasher stayed in the top spot as her competitors fell off, consistently hitting 10s despite a fan blowing an air horn at random times.Thrasher entered the final with a 0.7-point lead and opened with a solid 10.5, which Li matched. Thrasher smiled after a 10.4 left a slight opening, but Lis 10.1 on her final shot sent Thrasher on a surprising trip to the podium.In the finals, about halfway through, it kind of became clear to me that I was in contention for a medal, Thrasher said. But I quickly pushed that thought away and focused on breathing, just taking one shot at a time.Thrasher pulled it off against two of the worlds best rifle shooters, Li and Yi Siling.Li won gold medals in air rifle in 2004 at the Athens Games and in 3-position rifle in Beijing four years later. She also competed in the 2012 London Games and pulled off a clutch shot in the Rio final, hitting 10.9 to stay alive in the second round.Yi took a similar path as Thrashers, earning air rifle gold at the 2012 London Games just three years after starting her international shooting career.Thrasher stood her ground against the two Chinese shooters in the medal eliminations, hitting nothing lower than 10.4. Yi went out after a 9.8 on her final shot to earn bronze and Thrasher finished with a cumulative score of 208.0 to beat Li by a point in front of a rowdy crowd.I heard the cheers and the horns and it was very disturbing, Yi said. But I just had to control myself. I also looked up and saw that Virginia and Du Li were doing well themselves.Thrasher ended up on top of the podium and her whirlwind will wind down soon; a biomedical engineering major, she starts classes again at West Virginia on Aug. 17.Im actually looking forward to getting back to school again, Thrasher said.She will have a new title when she returns: Olympic champion. Cheap Air Jordan 1 NZ . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St. Air Jordan 1 NZ Store . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. http://www.airjordan1outletnz.com/ . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. RENO, Nev. -- Greg Chalmers won the Barracuda Championship on Sunday at Montreux for his first PGA Tour title by eagling the final hole for a six-point victory in the modified Stableford scoring event.The 42-year-old Australian won in his 386th start after entering the week as the active player with the most events without a victory.Its hard to win, and Im very thrilled and very pleased to get it done, Chalmers said. It was a tough. I knew today would be difficult. And we had difficult conditions. I was blessed, I think, that guys found it tough just the same as I found it tough.A point ahead of Gary Woodland and needing at least a par on the par-5 18th to wrap up the victory, Chalmers made an 8-foot eagle putt after hitting a 320-yard drive and 230-yard, 7-iron approach. A few minutes earlier, Woodland hit an 8-iron into the right bunker and three-putted for bogey.Quite fortunate that Gary didnt birdie the last, Chalmers said. That would have put a lot of pressure on me.Chalmers had a four-point round to finish with 43 in the system that awards eight points for double-eagle, five for eagle and two for birdie and deducts a point for bogey and three for double-bogey or worse. He had two birdies and five bogeys, the last two on Nos. 15 and 17.The left-hander earned a two-year tour exemption, a spot in the British Open at Royal Troon and other perks. With only conditional status, he had split time between the PGA tour and the Web.com Tour this year. The two-time Australian Open champion missed the cuts in his previous five starts on the big tour.Just to get back on the PGA Tour, I cant tell you how exciting that is, Chalmers said. Forty-two years of age, I turn 43 in October. This is a real fork in the road for my career, and its in the right direction.Because of the West Virginia floods that led to The Greenbrier Classic being canceled, a British Open spot was transferred to the leading player not already eligible at Montreux.Cant wait, Chalmers said. Its such a great thing that the R&A and Barracuda here have done for us, even though the circumstances that came about werent the greatest.Woodland, the 2013 winner, also had a four-point round to finish second.Its frustrating, Woodland said. I didnt make any putts coming down the stretch.In standard scoring, Chalmers finished a stroke ahead of Woodland and third-place finisherr Colt Knost. Wholesale Jordans NZ. He closed?with a 1-over 73 for a 15-under total.Knost had a 10-point round to reach 35. He has three top-four finishes in his past five events.I stole some today, but I threw a lot away, Knost said. Honestly, all week, I just didnt strike it very well. My short game saved me.Tim Herron was another point back after a 13-point round. He was pulling for Chalmers to win.That would be great. That would be awesome, the 46-year-old Herron said while Chalmers was in the middle of the back nine. Hes grinding his butt off. Were kind of in that stage of our career. Should we hang with the family, or should we keep going?Brendan Steele and Steve Wheatcroft tied for fifth with 32 points.Not the Sunday I wanted, Wheatcroft said. They definitely changed the golf course up on us. Took us four or five holes to figure that out. Cant imagine too much water went on the greens last night. They were rock hard.Rhein Gibson had the shot of the week. He holed out from 175 yards for double-eagle on the par-5 18th. He set up the albatross with a 370-yard drive.I hadnt had a birdie all day and just leaking oil, hitting good shots, not doing anything, Gibson said. I hit an unbelievable tee shot there and had a wedge in ... saw it go in. The crowd went pretty bonkers.Barracuda will donate $100,000 to a charity in Gibsons name. The only other albatross in tournament history was by Shiv Kapur in 2010, when the hole played as No. 9.Gibson tied for 25th with 24 points. He and other Australian players showered Chalmers with champagne.I didnt expect that, Chalmers said. And kind of unique because normally a lot of guys will just leave town. So for them to stay and do that was kind of special.Chalmers father, John, was also there to celebrate.My father just comes out to travel with me when my mom and my kids and my family are staying back in Dallas, Chalmers said. He just likes to come out and watch golf. He plays. Its good for us as father and son -- hes 72 now -- for us just to bond and chat and solve the worlds problems every night.Chalmers got the last laugh on a Twitter troll too.Unfortunately, someone on Twitter said, That guy cant close out. ... Ill be tweeting him back later, dont worry about that. ' ' '

ARLINGTON, Texas -- While the Texas Rangers are getting close to clinching another AL West title, their top two pitchers are struggling a bit. Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet .Yu Darvish matched a career high allowing seven runs, a night after All-Star lefty Cole Hamels had another subpar outing, and the AL-best Rangers lost 11-2 to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.We believe in those two guys, in Cole and Darvish, manager Jeff Banister said. Still believe theyre as good as there is out there.Darvish (5-5) struck out eight in his five innings, but walked four batters -- all of those runners scored -- and allowed two homers.Ive been having good command throughout this year. Today I didnt have it, Darvish said through his translator. I think its because I wasnt getting a good feel for it physically, and a feel for the pitches. Im not talking about pain or anything, its just the feel. I just didnt pitch well today.Joey Wendle led off the game with his first major league homer and Marcus Semien also went deep against Darvish.Carlos Gomez homered for the Rangers (88-61), whose magic number to clinch the division title dropped to five after Houston won 2-1 at Seattle later Saturday night. The Astros and Mariners are both 9 1/2 games back in the AL West with two weeks left in the regular season.Hamels has allowed at least six runs in three of his four starts, including the series opener Friday night against the As when he allowed six runs in six innings before the Rangers rallied to win the game with two outs in the ninth.There would be no big comebacks Saturday night, after which both Hamels and Darvish will likely have no more than two more starts before the postseason.Darvish has put together some quality starts in there, Banister said. With Cole, obviously, weve seen some challenges, hes been nicked a little bit, but still, these guys are still throwing quality pitches. ... I feel like that these guys are going to continue to find their rhythm and make good pitches for us.Raul Alcantara (1-1), among five As pitchers to make their MLB debuts this season with a start, had three strikeouts without a walk. He pitched into the sixth, when he allowed a two-run homer to Gomez.Danny Valencia added another three-run homer for the As, his 17th, in the eighth off Dario Alvarez.Wendle, a rookie second baseman in his 15th career game, hit a 1-1 pitch into the left-field seats. His sacrifice fly in the second made it 4-0, after Darvish had walked the bases loaded to start the second and Bruce Maxwell hit a two-run singleSemiens three-run homer in the fifth, his 26th, made it 7-0 against Darvish.I noticed that early the fastball command wasnt there. So you get him looking in one spot, Semien said. Hes going to throw it in there. He throws a lot of offspeed too, so we were able to key in on one pitch and did a good job.NO A FOR YU VS OAKLANDDarvish is now 2-9 in 13 career starts against Oakland. No other team has beaten Darvish more than four times. When Darvish last faced Oakland -- a day after his 30th birthday exactly a month ago Saturday -- he struck out nine and walked one in seven innings in a 6-2 victory. Before that, he had gone 0-8 in 10 starts against the As since winning against them more than four years earlier in only his eighth game after coming from Japan.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: RHP Sonny Gray, out since Aug. 7 with a strained right forearm, threw all of his pitches during a 31-pitch bullpen session. He will get a couple of days off before another bullpen, and could still potentially pitch in another game this season.Rangers: DH/1B Prince Fielder was in the dugout for the first time since announcing last month that he couldnt play again after a second spinal fusion surgery. He got his neck brace off just more than a week ago.UP NEXTAthletics: Since eight scoreless innings in his first start for Oakland, lefty Ross Detwiler is 1/3 with a 5.25 ERA his last seven games (six starts).Rangers: Colby Lewis (6-2, 3.31) makes his only his second start since a two-month stint on the DL with a strained right lat. The right-hander allowed three runs, all on solo homers, in 5 1/3 innings at the Los Angeles Angels last Sunday. Wholesale Jerseys From China . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. Authentic NFL Jerseys Cheap . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. http://www.cheapjerseysnearme.com/ . U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield in Manhattan agreed that lawyers on both sides could make their formal requests by Nov. 8. A hearing is scheduled for a day earlier. Jordan Siev, a lawyer for Rodriguez, wrote in a joint letter to the judge from lawyers on both sides that MLB lawyers planned to ask that the lawsuit be dismissed.
