NEW YORK -- Whatever Jacob deGrom meant, it didnt look good.Pulled after another shaky start, deGrom was headed down the dugout tunnel toward the clubhouse when he signaled for Mets trainer Ray Ramirez to follow him.Everythings fine, the shaggy-haired ace insisted Thursday night following New Yorks 6-4 loss to Miami.I was frustrated with how I pitched. I didnt feel great out there tonight. I just wanted to talk to Ray, he said.The Mets fell two games behind idle St. Louis for the second wild-card spot, with the Marlins another game back.DeGrom (7-8) got seven days between starts because the Mets worried he was fatigued, but he still struggled.DeGrom gave up three runs, six hits and four walks in five innings. He has lost three straight starts, tagged for a total of 16 runs, 31 hits and six walks in just 14 2/3 innings.When I walk four guys, I cant throw the ball where I want right now. I got to figure that out. Ill take this time in between this next one and try to get things right, he said.Just kind of out of sync out there. I waved him in to talk to him but theres nothing wrong, he said.Mets manager Terry Collins said he hadnt noticed deGrom signaling to the trainer, adding, What you guys just informed me about is a little troubling to me.But Collins could tell something was off.Its quite obvious when you walk four guys. He was behind in the count, he had a lot of pitches in five innings. Thats just not Jake. Thats the thing weve been watching is his command is not what it has been. Thats been the big issue, he said.Christian Yelich showed off his bat, legs and glove, capped by hitting a three-run homer that helped the Marlins end their season-worst five-game losing streak.Yelich homered for the third straight game, singled twice, drove in four runs and stole two bases. He made a dashing, diving catch in center field with the bases loaded and two outs -- that made up for him later dropping a rooutine fly for an error. Joe Panik Jersey. Jose Urena (3-5) and the Marlins averted a four-game sweep. Down 6-1, the Mets made it close, boosted by pinch-hitter Asdrubal Cabreras two-run homer in the ninth off Fernando Rodney.Urena allowed four hits, including Jay Bruces 29th homer, and one run in six innings.Bruce hit an RBI single in the eighth and the Mets loaded the bases with no outs. But September call-up Michael Conforto grounded into a double play and pinch-hitter Yoenis Cespedes struck out.It was scoreless in the second when the Mets loaded the bases with two outs. DeGrom hit a liner up the middle that Yelich, playing shallow for the pitch, rushed in to grab off the grass.Yelich hit a three-run drive for his 18th homer in the seventh.WELCOMERHP Fernando Salas pitched a scoreless inning a day after the Mets acquired him from the Angels for a minor leaguer. The 31-year-old reliever was 3-6 with six saves and a 4.47 ERA in 58 games, and had pitched well since the All-Star break. He got to wear his favorite No. 59 and rookie pitcher Josh Smoker switched to 58. Smoker gave up Yelichs home run.TRAINERS ROOMMets: Cespedes and Cabrera didnt start after it rained most of the afternoon.

F1 pundit Johnny Herbert is backing Lewis Hamilton to record a third consecutive Bahrain Grand Prix win this weekend. Barry Larkin Jersey . The Sky Sports F1 analyst successfully tipped 9/4 shot Nico Rosberg to land the season opener in Australia for Mercedes, his fourth successive race win, but believes it is Hamiltons turn to top the podium under the floodlights at Bahrains Sakhir circuit on Sunday.Herbert said: Lewis was the fastest man in every session in Melbourne, except the race. This weekend I expect him to put that right and take what would be a third consecutive Bahrain GP win. Hes still the man to catch, even if his poor start last time out allowed his team mate to take the spoils. Herberts Tips Johnnys backing Nico Hulkenberg to secure a top six finish in Bahrain at odds of 2/1 with Sky Bet Although Nico Hulkenberg narrowly missed out at Albert Park, Herbert still believes the Force India driver can secure a top-six finish this weekend, and is backing the German to do so at odds of 2/1.Herbert added: The red flag in Australia cost Nico a chance to finish in the top six, so fingers crossed that he gets some better luck this weekend. Force India traditionally go well in Bahrain, so its time for the Hulk to let rip in the desert!The F1 pundit also saw enough from rookie Manor driver Pascal Wehrlein to suggest he could finish in the points at odds of 22/1 with Sky Bet. You might think Im crazy but the long straights in Bahrain will suit the Mercedes engine that Manor are using this season, and the young German showed on his debut in Australia that hes good enough to spring a surprise or two this season, said Herbert.With brake wear likely to be an issue for many of the cars, could a few retirements allow Wehrlein to bag his first points in F1?Johnny Herberts Charity tips this season are supporting Sporting Memories.

CINCINNATI -- Manager Joe Maddons move was so wacky that even his own players laughed. Logan Morrison Jersey . And when it worked better than anyone could have imagined, the Cubs were celebrating again.Kris Bryant singled home the tiebreaking run in the 15th inning, and Maddon used three pitchers in left field while Chicago beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 on Tuesday night in the longest game of the season for both teams.With the Cubs out of position players, relievers Travis Wood and Spencer Patton (1-0) alternated between left field and the mound in the 14th inning, which ended with Patton getting the final out. Wood then finished it off with reliever Pedro Strop in left.When I went out there to do it originally, the infielders were kind of giggling, said Maddon, who had never done anything like it as a manager.It worked perfectly as things started falling in place for the Cubs again.Bryants only hit on Tuesday -- a single off J.J. Hoover (1-2) -- snapped the tie. Javier Baez added a grand slam in the 15th, the sixth career allowed by Hoover, which is a Reds record. Then it was just a matter of figuring out how to finish it off.For the left fielder to pitch to one batter and then go back -- yeah, thats crazy, Baez said. But we had fun.The National Leagues top team went 1-6 last week but has pulled out of the downturn by winning the first two games of a series against the Reds. The Cubs hit five homers -- three by Bryant -- while taking the opener 11-8.Eugenio Suarez singled home the tying run with two outs in the ninth off Hector Rondon, his third blown save in 16 chances, setting the game on its meandering course.There were a lot of instances that suggest things were going to go our way, but we werent able to get it done, Reds manager Bryan Price said. Thats a tough one, a really tough one.Maddon had talked to Wood about playing left field in such a circumstance. The reliever hadnt played outfield since high school, but takes fly balls during batting practice to stay ready. None of the Reds hit the ball to left field with a Cubs reliever out there, which was a disappointment for Wood.It was definitely interesting, a lot of fun, Wood said. I would have liked to have recorded an out.Ben Zobrist led off the game with a homer off left-hander John Lamb. Left-hander Jon Lester singled home another run and allowed only one hit until the eighth inning, when Billy Hamilton homered. The Cubs closer couldnt hold on.A lot of the focus Tuesday was on Bryant, who was coming off a historic performance.Bryant became the first major league player to hit three homers and two doubles in a game on Monday night. He set a Cubs record with 16 total bases and became the youngest Cubs player to hit three homers in a game since Ernie Banks did it in 1955, also at the age of 24.Bryant broke his three-homer bat the first time up on Tuesday, cracking it on a groundout. The bat boy retrieved it and took it to the Major League Baseball authenticator, who labeled the bat and safely stored it. Bryant flied out, walked twice, fouled out with two runners aboard for the final out in the 10th, and struck out in the 13th before driving in the go-ahead run.SO UNUSUALThe last time a Cubs pitcher played the outfield was 2009 when Sean Marshall was in left.TRAINERS ROOMReds: RHP Homer Bailey felt fine a day after throwing an inning in his first rehab start.

For a brief stretch of last season, Boise State lost its way.Coach Bryan Harsins usually methodical program suffered a brief lapse and with it went the Broncos spot as the dominant power in the Mountain West Conference.We needed to focus a little bit better than we did last year, Harsin said. Also understand that we werent a surprise to anybody when we played.Losses to New Mexico and Air Force last November served as a turning point. Boise States response to missing out on the Mountain West title -- beating San Jose State and then routing Northern Illinois 55-7 in the Poinsettia Bowl -- gave Harsin the belief that the resolve needed for the Broncos to remain a power in their conference and in the national discussion was still there.What I think you saw the last two games ... was the kind of football team that we want to be, Harsin said. And hopefully that will continue and carry over. Thats who we are.The potential is there for another special season on the blue turf. Offensively, the Broncos have three of the top talents in the Mountain West with sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien, running back Jeremy McNichols and wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck. They also return an experienced offensive line.The question will be its defense. The Broncos are fine at linebacker with Ben Weaver and Tanner Vallejo, but are inexperienced on the defensive line and in the secondary. And that secondary will get tested early, namely Week 2 when the Broncos host Washington State, their most challenging non-conference opponent.ENCORE, ENCORE: Rypien wasnt supposed to play last season. The plan was to redshirt the quarterback. When Ryan Finley went down with an injury, Harsin immediately turned to Rypien. He responded by throwing for 3,353 yards and 20 touchdowns in his college debut.Rypien was helped by McNichols, who ran for 1,337 yards and 20 touchdowns, and Sperbeck was his favorite target. Even though it came in a loss, Sperbeck set a Boise State record with 20 catches against New Mexico. That trio should be able to help carry the Broncos offense early while their defense maatures. Wholesale Jerseys Cheap. YOUTH SERVED: Linebacker is not an issue for the Broncos. Its elsewhere on the defense where Boise State is counting on new faces to get up to speed in a hurry. The defensive line has some experience on the edge but little playing time among the possible interior linemen. In the secondary, cornerback Jonathan Moxey and safety Chanceller James return but the rest are inexperienced. Getting the secondary solidified is a priority.I think they have to mature, Harsin said. I think our entire team does. ... Ive seen an experienced side of the ball be crummy and an inexperienced side be dumb enough to go out there and dominate. I hope we all have this rookie mentality.SEASON OPENER: Youth is the theme of Boise States defense entering the season and it may get tested right away. The Broncos open at Louisiana with former LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings the presumptive starter for the Ragin Cajuns. Boise State understood its new secondary was going to get tested against Washington State in Week 2 but the opener could be a litmus test of where the young Broncos defensive backs are in their development.KEY GAMES: The last time a non-conference team came into Boise and beat the Broncos in a regular-season game was 2001 when Washington State won 41-20. The Cougars provide Boise State its first challenge, but the toughest stretch for the Broncos comes in mid-October. The Broncos travel to New Mexico, host Colorado State and then five days later host BYU. Survive that stretch and the Broncos may not be challenged again until the season finale at Air Force.PREDICTION: The schedule is set up for Boise State to be part of the national conversation. The Broncos two toughest non-conference games -- Washington State and BYU -- are at home. They avoid San Diego State until the Mountain West title game at the earliest. Expect Boise State to find a way into the Mountain West title game but with a stumble somewhere along the way. ' ' '

Numbers Game examines the Stars adding Sergei Gonchar. The Stars Get: D Sergei Gonchar. 39-year-old Sergei Gonchar is, naturally, no longer the player he was at his peak, but has still been a valuable part of the Ottawa Senators blueline for the past three seasons. Over the last two years, Gonchar has 64 points in 119 games (0.54 points per game ranks 18th in the league over that span) while averaging more than 23 minutes of ice time per game. Hes always been an offensive defenceman, his 101 power play goals and 775 career points ranking 10th and 18th all-time, respectively, among blueliners. Even at this stage of his career, Gonchar can get the job done on the power play. In three seasons with the Senators, 46 of his 91 points (50.5%) have come on the power play, so hes likely to have a role in improving the Stars 18th-ranked power play, which means potentially slight production upgrades for the likes of Jamie Benn, Loui Eriksson, Ray Whitney and Alex Goligoski, the four returnees who saw the most power play time for the Stars last season. Gonchars game isnt great at even-strength. Hes susceptible to get beaten by quicker forwards, so managing his match-ups and zone starts is necessary to get the best results. In my Stars Off-Season Game Plan, I had suggested that a top four defenceman was one of their needs, so neww GM Jim Nill was quick about addressing that area. Johnny Manziel Jersey. Dallas made a significant financial commitment, two years and $10-million, to keep Gonchar from hitting the open market and that second season is a sizeable show of faith for a player at this stage of his career. Getting Gonchar also gives the Stars some flexibility on their defence. There is no need to rush any of their prospects but, if some younger players are ready to make the jump, that could open up trade possibilities with one of the Stars other veteran defencemen, particularly if that is whats needed to bolster the Stars forward lines. The Senators Get: A sixth-round pick. Getting anything in return for Gonchar counts as a bonus for the Senators because he would have been an unrestricted free agent on July 5th. A sixth-round pick doesnt offer a lot of value, about a one-in-seven chance of yielding an NHL player, but thats more than they would receive if Gonchar left as a free agent. With Senators D Erik Karlsson missing a good portion of the 2013 season, they needed Gonchars puck-moving ability, but with Karlsson presumably healthy for next season, the Sens can look to a younger, less expensive, alternative in that role. Before any other acquisitions occur, Patrick Wiercioch looks like one who could benefit from an increased role next season.

Total QBR measures nearly every aspect of quarterback play including passing, designed runs, scrambles, turnovers and penalties. Harmon Killebrew Jersey . QBR also strives to separate the performance of the individual quarterback from the rest of his team, in order to rate the overall efficiency of each quarterback in the league, also accounting for opposing defenses; quarterbacks who face tougher defenses will have their ratings adjusted upward in proportion to the difficulty of their opposition, and those who face weaker defenses will have their ratings adjusted downward. The new, adjusted QBR is now the number youll find under the Total QBR column at the QBR page.?For a full explanation of how ESPN determines QBR, click here.With that, a look at ESPNs current QBR rankings through Week 4 of the 2016 season: Eduardo Escobar Jersey .

After seeing Moto GP legend Valentino Rossi copy him on the Misano podium last week, Daniel Ricciardo will reserve his shoey celebration for his next Formula One victory -- something he hopes will be in Singapore this weekend. China Jerseys .After securing a podium at Julys German Grand Prix, Ricciardo drank champagne from his shoe, something he made fellow Australian and former Red Bull driver Mark Webber copy after he conducted podium interviews in Belgium. The celebration mimicked Australian rider Jack Miller, who did it after his maiden MotoGP win at Assen earlier this season.Last weekend Rossi did the same celebration after finishing second in Italy, but Ricciardo thinks it is best saved for wins.In Singapores Thursday press conference Ricciardo was asked if we will see the shoey again this weekend in Singapore, where Red Bull is expected to challenge for victory, and replied: If I win, yeah. If its just a second or third, probably not now. If its a victory I expect to see a few people up there doing it with me!Ricciardo also explained the origin of the celebration, which he said came from Australian surfing/fishing group The Mad Hueys.Its just a bit of a laugh. I know Jack Miller knows a few of the guys from The Mad Hueys, so when he got his win in Assen I suspected he was going to do it and he did, so I thought I would keep the Australian tradition going!And now Valentinos got into the mix! I saw he Instagrammed it yesterday, he said everyone loves a shoey and then he said delicious and all that, a few words Ive used for it -- I think its just a bit of fun now, everyones enjoying it.When Valtteri Bottas, who was sat next to him in the press conference, asked him how a shoey tasted, Ricciardo smiled and said: Honestly if the sparkling wine is cold then its good, normally it is on the podium. If its warm then usually you get the sweat and that through it! But the cold taste kills the bad stuff!Laughing again, Ricciardo said: So its delicious, as I said! China NFL Jerseys .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. NFL Jerseys Supply . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. http://www.wholesalenfljerseyssupplycheap.com/ .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers and their fans waited six seasons for Rick Porcello to have the breakout year they believed was his destiny.On Friday night, they finally got to see it.Porcello, pitching for the first time at Comerica Park as a member of the Red Sox, allowed two runs in seven innings as Boston beat Detroit 10-2.It was fun. Honestly, Porcello said in his usual low-key way. I think it helped that I pitched against those guys at Fenway last year and we came here last year, even though I didnt pitch. It was still weird being on the opposite side, though.Porcello is 17-3 with a 3.22 ERA, which no one appreciates more than his teammates.We gave him four runs in the first inning, and then he just did what he has done for us all year, said Hanley Ramirez, who drove in four runs. When we need a win, we know hes going to get us one. We had a tough loss yesterday, and he came out and shut them down.Porcello appreciated the early help, as both David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit two-run homers off Michael Fulmer in the first inning.Thats huge, especially against a guy who has been pitching as well as Michael, Porcello said. Its always easier to pitch with a cushion, especially against that offense.Porcello allowed four hits and two walks while striking out eight. His only major mistake was J.D. Martinezs two-run homer in the second inning.It looked like he had a little extra power on the fastball tonight, and Im sure some of that was being back here, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. You are always going to be pumped up when you go back to a place where you played for a long time.The Tigers have lost nine of 12 after winning 10 of 11.It is a roller coaster, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Ive gone through this every year of my career -- 25 years now. You have ups and downs.Fulmers Rookie of the Year campaign hit a snag, as the Red Sox got a career-high six runs off him in 5 2/3 innings. Fulmer (10-4) allowed 10 hits, including two homers, and walked one while striking out one.They are a fastball-hitting team, and they were ready for my fastball, Fulmer said. It felt like every time I went inside, they were on it.According to Bradley, that was indeed Bostons plan.Hes a very good pitcher who is very aggressive, he said. We wanted to attack him right away.Ortiz gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the first wiith his 22nd career homer at Comerica Park -- a blast deep into the stands in right field. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys. Ortiz has hit more homers in Detroit than in any other ballpark outside the AL East.Bradley gave Boston a four-run lead with the second two-run homer of the first inning, but Martinez pulled the Tigers within 4-2 with his two-run shot.Both pitchers settled down after that, and the score didnt change until the sixth. Fulmer retired the first two hitters, but base hits by Sandy Leon and Brock Holt put runners on first and second. Andrew Benintendi and Dustin Pedroia followed with RBI singles to knock Fulmer out of the game.Ramirezs two-run double off Bruce Rondon made it 8-2 in the seventh, and he added another two-run double in the eighth off Mark Lowe.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) threw in the bullpen Friday and remains on pace to start Sundays series finale. ... RHP Steven Wright (shoulder) is expected to miss at least one more start, but could start throwing off a mound this weekend.Tigers: RHP Mike Pelfrey (back) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session before the game, and is scheduled to throw another on Sunday. He would then progress to a simulated game before reporting to the minors for rehab games.MARTINEZ LOCKED INJ.D. Martinez hit a long home run in his first at-bat, but his second one might have been even more impressive. He hit a line drive to the left side that ripped the webbing out of shortstop Xander Bogaerts glove on its way to the outfield. Bogaerts had to call time to get a new glove from the Boston dugout.SPIRIT OF CESPEDESWhile Yoenis Cespedes wasnt at Comerica Park on Friday night, he certainly had a major impact on the game. Before the 2015 season, the Tigers traded Porcello to the Red Sox for Cespedes, then shipped him to the Mets at the trading deadline for Fulmer.Both trades were made by then-Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski, who was back in town Friday in his new role as Red Sox president.UP NEXTThe teams play the third game in their four-game series Saturday night with Bostons Drew Pomeranz (9-9, 2.99) facing Daniel Norris (1-1, 3.47). Norris is 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA in two career outings against Boston, one of which was a start. ' ' '

Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is staying mum when it comes to updating the status of injured Aggies defensive end Myles Garrett, receivers Speedy Noil and Ricky Seals-Jones and offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor.All four missed a win over South Carolina last week that leaves the eighth-ranked Aggies 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference. Texas A&M plays host to ninth-ranked Tennessee (5-0, 2-0) in a nationally telecast (CBS) game at 3:30 p.m. EDT Saturday at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.Sumlin didnt hold back when it came to praising the Vols, who scored on a Hail Mary as time ran out last week to get by Georgia 34-31 just a week after rallying from an 18-point deficit to whip Florida 38-28.The Vols have trailed in four of their first five games and needed overtime to get by Appalachian State in their opener.This is a team that on paper if you dont watch it youll say theyve gotten lucky, Sumlin said of the Vols. They havent gotten lucky. They have a veteran quarterback (senior Joshua Dobbs) that is No. 1 in this league in points responsible for, whether hes throwing it, whether hes running it, whatever hes doing, hes the No. 1 guy creating those points in this league.That No. 1 gives you a chance to win these types of games. Hes been through it before.Dobbs, Sumlin continued, has played in a number of different stadiums and before big crowds, including before a college-football-record crowd of 156,990 for the Battle of Bristol against Virginia Tech at Bristol Motor Speedway.Basically he has been through about all you can expect, plus he has quarterbacked the Vols to 11 consecutive victories, their longest winning streak since Tennessee won 14 in a row by taking the opener in 1999 after a 13-0 season in 1998.Dobbs has rushed for 267 yards and five touchdowns and passed for 13 touchdowns, the last a launch of a 43-yard pass to the end zone to Jauan Jennings as time ran out at Georgia.So hes going to come in here and hes seen all this, Sumlin said. Because of that, that creates confidence in a football team has a really good defense with high-level athletess with a lot of speed. Soccer Jerseys Outlet. Theyre one of the top special teams teams in this league. Great kickoff returns. Great speed across the field.When you have a team like that, youre explosive. When you combine that with a quarterback whos been there and done that and seen that, youre a confident unit.So we have a huge challenge this weekend.Tennessee coach Butch Jones can make the same claim about the challenge of facing Texas A&M.The Aggies survived an overtime scare from UCLA in the season opener but have rolled to double-digit victories since. Even without the four injured starters, they had things under control in beating South Carolina 24-13 last week.Quarterback Trevor Knight, the Oklahoma transfer, hasnt been the most accurate of passers (54.1 percent), but he still has been a catalyst for an offense that is spewing out 521 yards rushing and passing a game.Knight is the second-leading rusher on the team with 392 yards behind the 487 of freshman running back Trayveon Williams. Knight has scored six rushing touchdowns, the most on the team, to go with his seven touchdown passes.I think Trevor Knight has really changed their offense, Jones said. Hes managing their offense. He can hurt you with his arm. He can hurt you with his legs.Theyre just a complete football team.The Aggies will be going for their first 6-0 start since the 1994 team won its first seven games before tying SMU.This is the third consecutive season Texas A&M has started on a five-game winning streak, and the losses in October to end that success has been the subject of some talk in Aggieland. Sumlin dismissed the notion that a similar result would have any particular significance.If we lose this week, its not indicative of anything, Sumlin said. Our seasons not over. Were playing good football. This team has done a great job of focusing on the little things from day to day. Weve gotten great leadership from our coaching staff, assistant coaches, and internally from our team. ' ' '
