ARLINGTON, Texas -- Toronto manager John Gibbons knew Chien-Ming Wang could help the beaten up Blue Jays pitching staff. Paul Hornung Youth Jersey . He just didnt think it would happen this soon. Wang won for the first time in more than a year, Colby Rasmus homered for a third straight game, and the Blue Jays completed a four-game sweep by beating the Texas Rangers 7-2 on Sunday for their fifth straight victory. The 33-year-old Wang twice won 19 games for the New York Yankees before injuries derailed his career. He hurt his right foot in 2008 and injured his right shoulder in 2009. In his second start with the Blue Jays, Wang (1-0) allowed seven hits in seven shutout innings to win for the first time since last June 12 with Washington. Toronto signed Wang last Tuesday to bolster a rotation with three starters on the disabled list. "We didnt know what to expect, to be honest with you," Gibbons said. "He was one of the best in the game with (the Yankees). We got some good reports on him, otherwise he wouldnt be here. To be honest, hes pitching better than I expected of him." Wang was 4-4 with a 2.33 ERA in nine starts this year for the Yankees Triple-A team at Scranton-Wilkes-Barre. New York released him last week at his request, and Wang signed with the Blue Jays. Wang finished his 99-pitch outing by getting Andrus to ground out to second with runners on first and third in the seventh. He struck out five and walked two. "I waited for a chance to come up to the majors," Wang said. "Toronto picked me and gave me a chance to come here and play." The Rangers lost their sixth in a row and fell to 1-6 on a season-high, 11-game homestand. Texas has dropped six straight for the first time since April 15-21, 2010. Texas manager Ron Washington said he spoke with the team after the game, but didnt divulge his message. "I thought they needed to hear from the manager," Washington said. "Were not the first team to lose six in a row and we probably wont be the last." Adam Lind hit a three-run homer, and J.P. Arencibia added a two-run shot for Toronto. The Blue Jays outscored the Rangers 24-4 to sweep a four-game series at Texas for the first time. "I keep hearing the Rangers are struggling and all that," Gibbons said. "Maybe were pitching good. Maybe were playing good. I get tired of hearing that. I tip my hat to my guys." Derek Holland (5-4) allowed four runs and 10 hits in six innings for the Rangers, who have only scored eight runs in their slide. Elvis Andrus had an RBI single, and Ian Kinsler walked with the bases loaded to break up the shutout in the ninth. Texas has lost six in a row at home for the first time since a seven-game slide from July 20-Aug. 3, 2005. "I didnt sense any frustration," Texas outfielder David Murphy said. "Were past that point. Things didnt happen. With the amount of talent we have here, were very close to turning this thing around." Arencibia, who entered the series in a 3-for-41 rut, hit his second homer in three games. He lined an 0-1 pitch just over the 14-foot fence in left, a two-run shot that gave the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead. It was the first home run Holland has given up since May 19. Rasmus led off the fourth with a drive off the foul pole in right for his 13th homer. The Blue Jays scored four times in the seventh to extend their lead to 7-0. Jose Bautista had an RBI single, and Lind capped it with a three-run homer to right off Kyle McClellan. Lind went 7 for 17 in the series with two home runs and six RBIs. Adrian Beltre and A.J. Pierzynski had consecutive one-out singles in the fourth to put runners on first and third. The Rangers, however, couldnt take advantage of that chance. Third baseman Edwin Encarnacion made a diving catch to his right of Nelson Cruzs liner, and David Murphy popped out to left to end the threat. Texas rookie Jurickson Profar started at third base for the first time in his career. Beltre had a scheduled day off in the field and was the designated hitter. Before the game, Profar spent time on the field working with infield coach Dave Anderson. Kinsler batted third for the first time since May 22, 2011. He batted in that spot 60 times in 2010. NOTES: Texas DH Lance Berkman had a scheduled day off. ... Lind has hit safely in 17 of 19 games. ... Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (right hamstring strain) will start a rehab assignment for Double-A Frisco on Monday night. Reggie White Jersey . White came in fourth place in the event.

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free agent forward Mirza Teletovic, adding a four-year veteran coming off his best season in the NBA. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Australia .The 30-year-old Bosnian averaged career highs in points (12.2), field goal percentage (.427), 3-point percentage (.393) and 3-pointers made (2.3) for the Suns last season over a career-best 79 games. The 6-9 Teletovic signed with the Nets in 2012 and helped the team reach the playoffs in each of his three seasons with the team, where he also played under current Bucks coach Jason Kidd in 2013-14.Terms of the deal announced Friday were not disclosed. Yeezy Powerphase Australia . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Yeezy 700 V2 Australia . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.yeezyshoesaustralia.com/ . Dukurs winning time was 1 minute, 45.76 seconds, a quarter-second better than Russias Alexander Tretiakov. Lativas Tomass Dukurs was third, 1.41 seconds off the pace. Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. Sussex 69 for 1 trail Kent 575 (Northeast 190, Dickson 81, Denly 78, Stevens 63, Blake 61, Briggs 5-169) by 506 runs Scorecard Kent skipper Sam Northeast crossed 1000 first-class runs for the summer as Kent continued to dominate neighbours Sussex in Tunbridge Wells.At the mid-point of their County Championship match at Tunbridge Wells, Sussex had reached 69 for 1 in reply to Kents seasons best total of 575 all out. The visitors sole casualty was Harry Finch bowled when playing back in defence to a Mitch Claydon off-cutter that appeared to keep low.Northeast had batted in a short sleeved sweater for well over six hours in the hottest conditions of the year to post the fourth century of a golden summer and the 15th of his career.I was thinking to myself at one point why on earth have I got this jumper on, but its become a superstition, conceded Northeast. Weve a nice total on the board and a lot of runs to play with but its going to be hard work for us tomorrow. That said, there are encouraging signs for the bowlers already. Theres a little bit of slow turn for the spinners, it was reversing a bit at the end there and KG [Kagiso Rabada] was making it talk on a seriously slow deck, so well need to work hard for our wickets.Having bolstered his career-best in recent weeks with scores of 189 (v Glos), 191 (v Derbys) and 166* (v Essex) 26-year-old Northeast looked nailed on for his first double hundred until he slightly mistimed an attempted straight drive and saw bowler Steve Magoffin pull off a return catch diving to his left.He showed his frustration by turning around to flick off the bails with his bat, but his 244-ball stay with 13 fours and a six had secured his side a dominant position in this Division Two clash.Resuming on their overnight score of 310 for 3 and with Northeast unbeaten on 75, Kent suffered only one casualty in the morning session. Yeezy Shoes Australia Release. Darren Stevens, the clubs hugely popular beneficiary for 2016, reached a typically belligerent 63 before his ambition got the better of him. Having just slog swept one from Danny Briggs to the ropes, Stevens aimed to repeat the dose only to sky a catch to Will Beer at midwicket.Northeast joined forces with Alex Blake to add 127 inside 30 overs either side of lunch with Blake reaching his 50 with a six over long-on against the legspin of Will Beer. It was the left-handers second six to go with three fours. His fun ended for 61 with a missed sweep and an lbw appeal against Danny Briggs that made it 457 for 5.Briggs struck again when James Tredwell also skied to square leg and, once Northeast departed, the Kent tail soon rolled over.On his home debut emergency wicketkeeper Callum Jackson scored a creditable 38 before becoming the last of Briggss hard-earned haul of 5 for 169.Sussex head coach Mark Davis paid tribute to Briggs and his sides tenacity with bat and ball. It was a good effort to get through the final session today and only lose one wicket in the face of a good spell from Kagiso Rabada. Its obviously going to be hard work over the next two days as the pitch deteriorates, so we must go out there with a clear game plan and make sure we fight our corner.It was a very good toss for Kent to win and we tried to set some fields that made them think, but generally we stuck to our task and it was really exciting for Briggsy to get his first five-for for the club.

Christian Miller Jersey . The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. http://www.shoppanthersonline.us/panthers-dj-moore-blue-jersey/ .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Up until Saquon Barkley ripped off a game-winning, 25-yard touchdown run through the middle of Minnesotas defense in Penn States 29-26 overtime win over the Golden Gophers, Barkley had been bottled up, driven backward for losses and frustrated.Im really proud of Saquon, Penn State coach James Franklin said. Hes not having the big games and statistics that I think people anticipated or expected, you havent seen him once with bad body language, hang his head, been a great team player. Just kept persevering, waiting for opportunities, and when it came, made a big play for us.Barkleys dazzling run came at a critical time for Penn State (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten). The Nittany Lions, already down seven injured starters, risked a 0-2 conference start amidst growing fan frustration that prompted athletic director Sandy Barbour to declare earlier in the week Franklins job is not in jeopardy.Trace McSorleys 80-yard touchdown pass to Irvin Charles was timely, too. It snapped a 0 for 8 string of third-down attempts for Penn States offense and sparked the teams comeback from a 13-3 deficit. McSorley finished with 408 yards of total offense, the third highest single-game total in school history.McSorley completed 19 of 40 passes and ran for a touchdown. Barkley finished with 63 yards on 20 carries.Mitch Leidner completed 24 of 40 passes for 241 yards with a touchdown, and Rodney Smith and Shannon Brooks added 104 and 100 rushing yards, respectively, for Minnesota (3-1, 0-1 Big Ten). Brooks and Drew Wolitarsky scored touchdowns for the Gophers.Its pretty obvious it hurts, Minnesota coach Tracy Claeys said. Well be up in the morning and well be back and ready to go.Emmit Carpenter kicked four field goals for Minnesota, including a go-ahead 37-yarder with 54 seconds to go. But Tyler Davis third field goal, a 40-yarder with two seconds left, forced overtime. Carpenters 46-yarder put Minnesota up after thee first half of overtime before Barkley ended it on the next play. Jordan Scarlett Womens Jersey. I think it was definitely something our players needed, Franklin said. Everyone needed it, theres no doubt about it.LAST LINE OF DEFENSEMarcus Allen looked no worse for wear after making 22 tackles -- eight solo -- while playing most of his snaps as Penn States eighth defender in the box.It was two shy of Penn States single-game record.Hes grown used to helping support whats been a thin corps of linebackers since his freshman season in 2014 and its as thin as its ever been with starters Nyeem Wartman-White, Jason Cabinda and Brandon Bell out. Penn State lost fill-in Brandon Smith in the second half with an apparent head injury.THE TAKEAWAYMINNESOTA: The Gophers are a scrappy bunch and will have a shot to hang with a lot of Big Ten teams with Leidner and their running backs playing well.Leidner bounced back from a shaky start where he was 0 for 4 against the blitz to complete his next five passes for 35 yards and a touchdown against extra-man pressures. He erred in the fourth quarter, However. Leidner steered his team to Penn States 13-yard-line where he sailed a pass into 8-man coverage to be intercepted by Jordan Smith.PENN STATE: After falling into a 13-3 halftime hole and going 0 for 7 on third downs over the first two quarters, Penn State salvaged some momentum with a win. More importantly, Joe Moorhead and the offense got on track with big plays in the third quarter where Penn State racked up 190 yards of offense with 156 of them coming on deep passes against Minnesotas shorthanded secondary.UP NEXTMINNESOTA: Will try to take the Floyd of Rosedale back from the Iowa Hawkeyes at TCF Bank Stadium on Oct. 8.PENN STATE: Hosts Maryland on Oct. 8 in whats become arguably each teams biggest rivalry.

Jo Pavey battled back from the brink in her 10,000 metres final at the European Championships in Amsterdam to put herself firmly in the frame for Olympic selection. Dirk Nowitzki Mavericks Jersey .The 42-year-old mother of two, who was down in 11th at one stage at the Olympic Stadium, dug in over the final two laps to move through the field as her rivals faded and she came home in fifth place in 31 minutes 34.61 seconds.It meant Pavey surrendered the title she memorably won two years ago, with Yasemin Can winning gold, but of greater importance was the fact her time was inside the Olympic qualifying standard.Indeed, it was more than 47 seconds quicker than her gold medal-winning run in Zurich, the fastest time by a Briton this year and, perhaps crucially, more than 37 seconds quicker than her rival for the third and final spot on the team for Rio, Kate Avery, has run in 2016.Pavey would appear to be in the box seat to make history by becoming the first British track athlete to compete in five Olympics, but 24-year-old Averys status as a potential star of the future, even though she opted not to compete in Amsterdam, could count in her favour.Whatever news the selection announcement on July 13 brings, though, the fact that Pavey is right back in contention is a minor miracle.She has been hampered by a chest infection which ruined her chances of gaining automatic selection at Mays trials, while last month she travelled to a 10,000m race in Boston only to have it cancelled, meaning she had to race over 5,000m instead.Paveys roommate in Amsterdam, Jess Andrews, 19 years Paveys junior and whose spot in Rio is already secure, finished seventh in 31mins 38.02secs.Dina Asher-Smith lived up to her billing as favourite for 200m gold by storming into the final in a seasons best 22.57s.The 20-year-old, bidding to land her first major senior title in the Dutch capital, looked to have plenty left in the tank as she cruised through the semifinals as the joint fastest qualifier.The history student, who does not have to contend with Hollands Dafne Schippers after the world champion opted to race only over 100m in front of her home crowd, ran a superb bend and was already well in front heading into the straight as she took 0.15s off her previous best this year.Greg Rutherford was pleased to blow away the cobwebs as he booked his place in the long jump final in his first competition for a month.The defending champion was relieved to discover the severe inner ear condition he sustained as a result of the whiplash injury he suffered last time out at the Birmingham Diamond League, which has caused him to lose hearing in his left ear, did not appear to affect his jumping.The 29-year-olds first-round leap of 7.93m was enough to book his place in Thursdays final. He followed it with two fouls, as swirling winds inside the stadium made controlling the run-up difficult, to qualify in eighth place.Elsewhere, Christine Ohuruogu in the womens 400m, Martyn Rooney in the mens 400m and Richard Kilty in the 100m all breezed through the opening rounds of their respective events. Dwight Powell Mavericks Jersey . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres.

He has victories at Seattle in Funny Car (1999) and Top Fuel (2011).Ive been coming here most of my life, going back to the early-80s, and this track has always been great, Worsham said.

LOS ANGELES -- In a kid they will trust, as the Dodgers announced that 20-year-old rookie Julio Urias will start Wednesday in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the Cubs. Marcus Smart Celtics Jersey .When he throws his first pitch Wednesday, Urias will become the youngest postseason starting pitcher in major league history, surpassing a mark previously held by Bret Saberhagen, who took the mound at 20 years, 175 days old in 1984. Urias will be 20 years, 68 days old when he pitches in Game 4.Julio, I think that we expect him to just go out there and compete, use his pitch mix and go after these guys, manager Dave Roberts said. Give us a chance to win a baseball game. Its what Julios done all year long.The Mexico native made his major league debut at the age of 19, when he took on the Mets in New York on May 27. It was a rough night, as he lasted just 2 2/3 innings, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks.Five days later, he made his first of two appearances against the Cubs and struggled again, giving up six runs (five earned) on eight hits in five innings at Wrigley Field.Urias rebounded to go 5-2 in his rookie season with a 3.39 ERA in 18 appearances, 15 of them starts. Taking out those first two outings, Urias posted a 2.73 ERA. In his second matchup with the Cubs, at home on Aug. 27, he gave up one run on six hits in six innings while matching a season high with eight strikeouts. He earned his fifth victory of the season in that game.He will enter Wednesdays outing, though, having been used sparingly down the stretch. Urias pitched just 14 innings in September as the Dodgers curtailed his innings. They had originally decided to move him to the bullpen in an attempt to limit his innings, but he has been on hand as a fourth starter since the postseason started.He was not asked to start in the five-game NL Division Series, although he did pitch two scoreless innings in the Dodgers Game 5 victory, earning a spot in the NLCS.Urias has thrown as many as 100 pitches just once this season and reached the 90-pitch mark just four times. Roberts said he is less concerned with pitch count this time around and will primarily monitor effectiveness.I think that weve kind of monitored his usage throughout the regular season, but I think right now for me, its not necessarily the pitch count, Roberts said. A lot of it is the stressful innings, too. Its going to be a big game. So if hes throwing the baseball the way we expect, then Im not afraid to push him to help us win a baseball game. Robert Williams Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. Paul Pierce Celtics Jersey . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. http://www.celticssale.com/kids-kevin-mchale-celtics-jersey/ . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Retaining fifth-year center Hassan Whiteside was a major priority for the Miami Heat last summer.Whiteside, an emerging star, showed why it was so important for the Heat keep him as the cornerstone of their rebuilding during Wednesday nights season opener. The 7-footer dominated the paint in helping deliver a 108-96 win in Miamis first game without perennial All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.He led the Heat with 18 points, 14 rebounds and four blocked shots. It was a statement night even if that wasnt Whitesides intention.Its not about trying to make a statement, Whiteside said. Its just that Im coming out here and playing. My teammates made it easier for me and we just played as a team. Im coming out there with a chip on my shoulder, a lot of guys are counting us out. These guys have an edge to them so Im excited.Whiteside showed some flashes in the first half, but it was in the second that his athleticism and strength became too much for the Magic, who were without center Bismack Biyombo for Wednesday nights game. Whiteside scored 10 points, grabbed six rebounds and blocked two shots in the final two quarters to help the Heat blow open a back-and-forth game.Miami never relinquished the lead again after a 7-0 run midway through the third quarter that was sparked by a big block by Whiteside and one of his several slam dunks.He was enjoying the game and competition, even when he was on the bench and that is important, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. We need him to be great and he was that in the third quarter. He really anchored our defense and ignited everyone else.His prowess on the inside started a dunk-fest as the Heat owned the paint the second half. Goran Dragic scored 16 points and Justise Winslow added 15, while Tyler Johnsons 15 points led three players off the bench in double figures for Miami.Miami scored outscored Orlando 74-36 in the paint.Orlando guard Evan Fournier led all five starters in double figures with 20 points while Nikola Vucevic turned in a double-double with 17 points and 14 rebounds.But none of it was enough to prevent Frank Vogell from suffering a loss in his coaching debut with the Magic. Red Auerbach Jersey. IP INSHeat: Second-year guard Josh Richardson did not play Wednesday night due to a sprained MCL in his right knee. ... Both Tyler Johnson and James Johnson came off the bench to give the Heat a boost, scoring eight points each in the first half. ... The Heat have won six straight openers, the longest such current streak in the NBA.Magic: Point guard Elfrid Payton had an up and down night, scoring 16 points, but he only had four in the second half and committed four costly turnovers. ... Serge Ibaka managed 14 points but shot just 6 of 17 from the field in his debut with the Magic.MILESTONE WINIt was Spoelstras career win No. 400.I was talking to Pat (Riley) about that and he said `Oh, 400. When I was with the Lakers that many years, I had about 700, Spoelstra said. Thats puts it in perspective. Im just glad I had an opportunity to coach this many games. I should have been fired three or four times.HEATED RIVALRYFournier says there is no better opponent for the Magic to start the season with than their in-state rival Miami.Playing Miami the first game is special, Fournier said. We dont like them and they dont like us. Its no secret.MIDDLE MANWith Biyombo serving an NBA-mandated one-game suspension for exceeding the flagrant foul limit in last seasons playoffs, the Magic had to shift some things around. Ibaka had to slide over and play center quite a bit when Orlando went to its smaller lineup and Vucevic went to the bench.UP NEXTHeat: Miami will open its home schedule on Friday against the Charlotte Hornets without Wade on the roster for the first time since the Heat drafted him in in the first round in 2003. Wade is playing for the Chicago Bulls.Magic: On Friday Orlando begins an early season three-game road swing with the first stop at The Palace of Auburn Hills to take on the Detroit Pistons. The Magic will also play NBA champion Cleveland and then Philadelphia on the trip. ' ' '

The crowd helped count down the final seconds and after the game the Serbia team tossed coach Marina Maljkovic into the air a couple of times.The coach tried explain what the victory means for the small country.Its like climbing Mount Everest without oxygen, Maljkovic said.Team sports, especially basketball, are very big in the Balkan nation with plenty of tradition too. Yugoslavia took silver in the 1988 Seoul Games and bronze in the 1980 Moscow Games. But then came the breakup of Yugoslavia and after Serbia became an independent nation in 2006, womens basketball in the country started over.Maljkovic credits the players on this team for doing so much to expand womens basketball in Serbia, winning the 2015 Eurobasket and now a bronze in its first Olympics.And people are going to talk about it, Maljkovic said.The Serbs couldnt wait to get back to the athletes village to continue the party they started on the court.This is the most important thing for us that we are coming back also with a medal, not with nothing, team captain Milica Dabovic said.France leaves its third Olympics without any hardware after taking silver at the 2012 London Games after being outrebounded 18-14 in the second half. Coach Valerie Garnier gave Serbia for executing its game plan exposing some of her teams weaknesses.They kept us far from the basket, and they know that this is our weak point and we havent managed to overcome this and develop our game, so theyre also technical reasons that explain this result, Garnier said.Going home with a medal seemed unlikely after the Serbs appeared devastated after their loss to Spain in the semifinals Thursday. They went back to the athletes village and didnt talk about the loss, simply taking Friday off from basketball and all sports. A needed break after three weeks in Brazil.Losing to Spain the way we did, it was heartbreaking, said Serb forward Danielle Page, who played at Nebraska in college in the U.S. It was heartbreaking. We let an opportunity get away there. Im so proud of the girls to bounce back like this to show the mental toughness that we did. To play that way against an incredible French team, theyre super-talented. Im so proud to be part of this team.Serbia raced out to a 12-3 lead and was up 18-10 after the first quarter. Dabovic had seven points in seven minutes -- more than she had scored in the previous seven games -- and finished with nine. France rallied and the score was tied at 27 at halftime.Maljkovic chose not to talk to her team during the break, hoping to punch the right button to motivate her players for the win.It worked.When France took a 40-37 lead early in the third, Serbia finished the quarter on an 18-2 run and never trailed again.Endy Miyem led France with 18 points.Were in the first four in the world, Milovanovic said. That means a lot to Serbia and to womens basketball especially. I want little girls to come and play basketball because this is a beautiful sport.---Online:AP Summer Games website: http://summergames.ap.org/ Dexter Williams Youth Jersey . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. Aaron Rodgers Packers Jersey . The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Jace-Sternberger-Jersey/ . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. MINNEAPOLIS -- For the first time in his 23-year NFL coaching career, Mike Zimmer wasnt at the stadium with his team.With the Minnesota Vikings hosting Dallas on Thursday night, Zimmer was at home resting after emergency surgery to repair a detached retina.Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer took over as the interim head coach, a decision that Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said would be the least disruptive to the team. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur (Cleveland, 2011-12) and offensive line coach Tony Sparano (Miami, 2008-11) each have prior experience as an NFL head coach, but they remained in their roles. Zimmer is the play-caller for the defense, considered one of the savviest in the league, and that duty fell to defensive coordinator George Edwards.The teams flagship radio station, KFAN-FM, reported on the pregame show that Zimmer visited the team hotel to address the players in the afternoon. The Vikings played a video clip of Zimmer encouraging the team during training camp with a get-well-soon message on the scoreboard prior to kickoff. Spielman declined to speculate on whether Zimmer would have to miss multiple games during the recovery, but with the Dec. 11 game at Jacksonville the coach is unlikely to be cleared in time for air travel with his condition.We have to see how his eye responds to the surgery, Spielman said. I do know how intense coach Zimmer is. Talking with him today and with the doctors, as much as he wants to be out there coaching tonight, its in his best interest that we get this taken care of. Coach Zimmer has never missed a game. I know how hard this is on him. I cant express how hard on him it is that he wont be able to coach. But we have to look after his health.Left untreated, retina damage can lead to permanent vision loss . The retina is a thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye. When its detached, the cells are separated from the layer of blood vessels that provide oxygen and nourishment. This was the third procedure the 60-year-old Zimmer has had over the past month.As hard-headed as he is and as tough-minded as he is, we had some pretty significant talks one-on-one, heart-to-heart, on what is important in life and what isnt, Spielman said. I think after we met, I expressed to him sspecifically that potentially going blind in one eye is not worth one game in the NFL. Darnell Savage Jr. Packers Jersey. Zimmer, who got his start in the NFL as an assistant with the Cowboys in 1994 and spent 13 years with the organization, has yet to face Dallas in the regular season as a head coach . The Vikings and Cowboys played last year in the preseason.Zimmer first experienced trouble with his right eye a couple of days before the Oct. 31 game at Chicago and scratched the eye inadvertently during that game. That prompted team doctors to send him for further examination, which revealed a torn retina. He had surgery Nov. 1 and another one Nov. 8, which left his eye noticeably red. It had cleared up significantly in recent weeks, though, and Spielman said Zimmer wasnt expected to need further treatment.But the coach suddenly complained of vision problems during a walk-through practice with the team Wednesday afternoon, and head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman drove Zimmer to seek medical attention. Spielman said the latest diagnosis was a detached retina.After first revealing the issue at his Nov. 2 news conference, Zimmer said hed been watching film with his good eye and using reading glasses to write down notes in preparation for that weeks game. With the Vikings mired in a slump with five losses in the last six games, the hard-nosed Zimmer sure hasnt appeared to back off his approach in the desire to help the team get back on track and catch up in the NFC playoff chase. Zimmer mentioned recently hes been arriving at his office even earlier than usual, around 4:15 a.m.Spielman dismissed the theory that Zimmers setback this week was related to pushing too hard after the first two procedures.Whether the situation was the sudden death of his wife, Vikki, when he was the defensive coordinator for Cincinnati in 2009, the kidney stones he had removed in 2014 or the death of his father, Bill, during the 2015 preseason, Zimmer had never missed a game until now.Its not worth the risk, Spielman said. And were looking out for the long-term of his health.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '

There are just 80 days to go until the Games and double Olympic gold medallist Adlington has high hopes for the British swimming squad.The swimming team are looking so good, Adlington told Sportswomen on Sky Sports News HQ. Youve obviously got Adam Peaty, James Guy and Siobhan-Marie OConnor - I really hope she gets a medal - and then Jazz Carlin and youve also got people like Fran Halsall on the team.  We could see four to six medals as we have never really had that depth before. Hopefully if we are all on form, touch wood, we can pick up a lot of medals.World champions Peaty and Guy headline a 26-strong Team GB Olympic squad for Brazil which was selected following last months National Championships in Glasgow. The English pair will make their Olympic debuts in Rio, as will Welsh Commonwealth champion Carlin. Head coach Bill Furniss (left) and some of the GB swimmers (Siobhan-Marie OConnor centre) Sky Academy Sports Scholar OConnor also secured her spot on the team last month, but this will be the second Games for OConnor, who won World Championship bronze in the 200m individual medley in Russia last summer.Adlington has backed 20-year-old OConnor to perform well in Brazil, saying: We are going to see her go in the 200m in the medley and hopefully she can do well. She is in a tough event but she has a shot at a medal here.She has become a smart athlete with the way she races. Shes a gutsy swimmer and thats what I love about her, she just gives it her all. She is such a passionate swimmer so hopefully she can pick up a medal in Rio. OConnor competes in the womens 200m individual medley at the British Swimming Championships in Glasgow Adlington was also full of praise for four-time Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds.She said: With Ellie nothing is impossible, thats what Ive learnt. She is a hard worker who really wants to push herself and she wants to push for world records, not just for medals. I think she is going to be a huge success in the summer. Ellie Simmonds, four-time Paralympic champion Team GB will be looking to improve on a very disappointing Olympics at London in 2012 where the British swimmers failed to achieve their Olympic medal target of five, winning one silver and two bronzes, both of which went to Adlington.However, hopes for the summer will be high after a youthful squad achieved a record-breaking haul of medals at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Things have become so bad for the San Francisco Giants that Bruce Bochy is second-guessing his own managerial decisions. Youri Tielemans Jersey . Madison Bumgarner is lost for any explanation as to why the San Francisco Giants have been so inconsistent in the second half.Everybody knows one thing: There isnt much time left and there must be an immediate turnaround to become a playoff team. When youre losing and trying to hold on, scoreboard watching can be excruciating.Bumgarner (14-9) missed a chance at his milestone 100th career win and the Giants wasted another chance for a potential push in the NL West, losing to the San Diego Padres 3-1 on Wednesday to be swept by the divisions second-to-last-place club.This was a big series. Theyre all big, Bochy said. ...You take responsibility when things arent going well. Its always on your mind ... something you could have done a little bit differently. Its human nature. I think every manager or coach will tell you that. We wear it pretty hard.The division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Yankees later Wednesday, increasing their division lead to five games. On Tuesday night, San Franciscos bullpen blew a three-run lead in the ninth and the Giants failed to gain ground.Now, they must regroup to host St. Louis for an important four-game set starting Thursday night among playoff contenders and wild-card candidates. San Francisco has won the World Series in every even year this decade: 2010, `12 and `14.Theres a lot of pressure this time of year, Bumgarner said. Its more of a mindset this time of year.Luis Perdomo (8-9) allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings of four-hit ball. He struck out five with one walk. The 23-year-old right-hander who the Padres acquired in the Rule 5 draft from the Cardinals has given up three runs or fewer in 11 of his last 15 starts.Brandon Maurer finished for his 10th save.It was the same story for San Francisco of late with missed opportunities and mistakes.Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the eighth, San Franciscos Denard Span was picked off trying to get back to first after drawing a two-out walk.Spans base-running blunder was the Giants second on the day. Brandon Belt was doubled up at second base in the bottom of the second on Conor Gillaspies liner to first.Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, allowed seven hits and three runs, all earned, with five strikeouts and two walks in 6 2/3 innings.When he takes his next turn, the lefty again would try to become the third-youngest Giants pitcher reach 100 victories.Luis Sardinas had an RBI single among his three hits for San Diego, while Wil Myers added a double.The Giants lost their sixth straight to San Diego -- outscored 29-15 -- after winning the initial nine matchups of 2016.San Francisco was swept by the Padres for the second time this season, after dropping three in a row at Petco Park to begin the second half. San Diego earned its first sweep at AT&T Park since May 2010.Its not this big macro statement about where we are in the season and what were trying to accomplish, Padres manager Andy Green said. Its not playing spoiler or anything like that.POSEYS PLEDGEBefore the game, Giants catcher Buster Posey and ESPN basketball analyst Dick Vitale teamed up to discuss their pledge to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research. Posey and wife Kristen were set to host a benefit at the ballpark for The V Foundations Buster and Kristen Posey Pediatric Cancer Research Award.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: RHP Jarred Cosart (hamstring, groin) still is in the plans to start Sundays series finale at Colorado or by Monday at home against Arizona at the latest.Giants: 1B Brandon Belt returned from an illness that kept him out Tuesday night. ... RHP Derek Law was activated from the 15-day disabled list on his 26th birthday after he missed 15 games with a strained right elbow.UP NEXTPadres: LHP Christian Friedrich (5-10, 4.67) will pitch the series opener in Colorado on Friday. Friedrichs most recent start was arguably his best this year. He struck out a season-high 10 batters and allowed one walk in seven shutout innings of two-hit ball against the Rockies.Giants: RHP Johnny Cueto (15-5, 2.90) starts the opener of a four-game series against St. Louis. Cueto is 2-2 with a 2.56 ERA over his last five starts. Hes 6-8 with a 3.88 ERA in 21 career starts against the Cardinals.

"His juice; his aggression all night long. Simone Biles won five Olympic medals in her first Olympic Games and may very well already be the best Olympic gymnast ever. With four golds and one bronze, wearing all five medals at once has to strain her neck, right? Plus how is it possible to make sure each medal shines so brightly?Well, Biles revealed who her mentor was: The GOAT.You know, that Michael Phelps. The one who won 23 ggold medals, 28 total Olympic medals and once wore eight at once. Dedryck Boyata Belgium Jersey. That conversation mustve taken place when Biles and two of the most dominant swimmers were together for a Sports Illustrated cover shoot. Legend to legend, he probably didnt mind. ' ' '
