HOUSTON — All season long, it seemed inevitable.

Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys
-Astros for the American League pennant.

“It’s the matchup that we wanted,” Houston shortstop Carlos Correa said. “It’s the matchup that everybody wants to watch. It’s must-see TV right there. So everybody is going to be tuning in. It’s going to be fun.”

Houston made it happen Thursday night as Gerrit Cole pitched another playoff masterpiece and the Astros jumped to a quick lead, turning back the Tampa Bay Rays 6-1 in the deciding Game 5 of their AL Division Series.

On deck, the heavyweight matchup so many fans were anticipating: Jose Altuve and the 107-win Astros against Aaron Judge and the 103-win Yankees. Game 1 is Saturday night in Houston — the Astros won four of seven meetings this season.

“This is two incredible powerhouse teams,” Houston ace Justin Verlander said. “We’ll find ourselves in the middle of the ring here in a couple of days and we’ll be going at it.”

After fellow aces Zack Greinke and Verlander were unable to close out the scrappy Rays on the road, Cole made sure Houston moved on. Given a 4-0 cushion in the first inning, he dominated through the eighth, striking out 10 and allowing just two hits.

“I’m just going to treat it like it’s the next game, man,” said Cole, who grew up a Yankees fan. “I mean, we know that they’re obviously very talented, and it’s going to be a dogfight.”

Michael Brantley and Altuve put the finishing touches on this victory, hitting back-to-back home runs in the eighth. The Astros advanced to their third straight ALCS, and are aiming for their second World Series crown in that span.

Houston beat the Yankees in a seven-game ALCS on the way to its first championship in 2017. The Astros also won the 2015 AL wild-card game at Yankee Stadium.

The Rays beat Oakland in the AL wild-card game, then won Games 3 and 4 against the Astros to extend their first playoff run since 2013.

But facing Cole, the Rays were in trouble — especially after Altuve, Alex Bregman and the Astros scored four times in the first against Tyler Glasnow, who said afterward it was pretty obvious he was tipping pitches.

“You get a taste of this, you want to keep going,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “Today we kind of got outpowered. Outpowered on the mound and obviously at the plate.”

Cole followed his 15-strikeout gem in a Game 2 win with another overpowering effort. The right-hander, who was drafted by the Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys
out of high school but didn’t sign, improved to 18-0 in his last 24 starts.

“This team is special, and the reason that we’re special is because different guys step up every single night,” Bregman said. “Yeah, if one guy goes off we’re probably going to win. Gerrit went off twice this series.”

Cole topped the majors with 326 strikeouts this season, led the AL with a 2.50 ERA and posted 20 wins, one behind Verlander for most in the big leagues. He tried to stick to what got him this far and not alter his approach on Thursday night even though the stakes were so much higher.
ATLANTA — With a stunning outburst their first time up, the St. Louis Cardinals scored 10 runs for the biggest opening inning in post-season history and dealt the Atlanta Braves another playoff heartbreak with a 13-1 rout in decisive Game 5 of the NL Division Series on Wednesday.

Before many fans had reached their seats, the Cardinals were already booking their plans for the NL Championship Series, where they will face either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Washington Nationals in a best-of-seven set beginning Friday. Those teams were meeting in their own Game 5 at Dodger Stadium. It will be St. Louis’ first NLCS trip since 2014.

For the Braves, it might take a while to get over this debacle.

After pitching seven scoreless innings in a Game 2 win, Mike Foltynewicz retired only one hitter before getting yanked. First baseman Freddie Freeman made a crucial error that might have limited the damage. The Cardinals scored their final run of the inning on a strikeout — a wild pitch in the dirt that skipped away from catcher Brian McCann.

It was Atlanta’s 10th straight post-season round loss since its last victory 18 long years ago, tying the ignominious mark set by the Chicago Cubs between 1908 and 2003.

St. Louis leadoff man Dexter Fowler batted three times before the bottom of Atlanta’s order got its first looks, and the Cardinals made several changes after their 10-spot in what might’ve been the first set of defensive changes ever made by a team before its opponent had batted. There was no need to worry about any more offence with Jack Flaherty on the mound, coming off one of the great second halves by a starting pitcher in baseball history.

The 23-year-old right-hander had not given up more than three runs in 15 starts after the All-Star break, posting a 0.91 ERA. He certainly wasn’t going to let this massive lead get away, though Josh Donaldson — in perhaps his final game with the Braves — gave the fans a brief reason to cheer in a 13-0 game when he homered over the centre-field wall in the fourth.

Manager Mike Shildt let Flaherty throw 104 pitches over six innings, surrendering four hits and that lone run for the first post-season win of his blossoming career. Flaherty loaded the bases in the fifth after drilling Ronald Acuña Jr. with a fastball but induced an inning-ending groundout from Freeman.

This one, though, will long be remembered for what happened before Flaherty even took the mound.

The Cardinals batted around and got more than halfway through their order a second time. Tommy Edman, Fowler and Kolten Wong all had two-run doubles in what looked like a giant pinball game as St. Louis equaled the highest-scoring inning in post-season history, a record initially set by the Philadelphia Athletics against the Chicago Cubs in the 1929 World Series. It was matched by the Cheap Detroit Tigers Jerseys
(1968 World Series vs. St. Louis), the Anaheim Angeles (2002 ALCS vs. Minnesota) and, now, the Cardinals.

No team had ever scored that many runs in the very first inning.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Cardinals: After missing two weeks with a strained left hamstring, 2B Wong has held up well in his post-season return. “He feels great and hasn’t really missed a beat,” Shildt said.

Braves: 2B Ozzie Albies remained in the game after appearing to hurt his right hand while dropping a throw from SS Dansby Swanson attempting to turn a double play in the third inning. A trainer gave Albies’ hand a quick examination on the mound during a pitching change later in the inning, but he stayed in the game.

UP NEXT

The Cardinals lost to San Francisco in five games at the 2014 NLCS, their last of four straight trips to the round. The NL Central champions went 4-3 vs. the Dodgers during the regular season, sweeping a four-game series at Busch Stadium in April but losing three straight at Los Angeles in August. St. Louis posted a 5-2 edge over Washington in their season series.

After a second straight NL East title, the Braves head into the off-season with a solid nucleus of young talent but the burden of another post-season flop. Donaldson is a potential free agent, along with pitcher Dallas Keuchel, who struggled in his two NLDS starts.
“You’re not naive to the situation you’re in, but you can’t afford to treat it any different,” he said.

The 29-year-old struck out the first two batters in the eighth before Willy Adames grounded out to end Cole’s night.

“I don’t know if anybody can get better than that,” Adames said. “He was unbelievable last start, and today was still the same.”

Cole beat his chest once before walking to the dugout to a huge ovation from the rowdy sellout crowd of 43,418 at Minute Maid Park.

“Energy was so great all night,” Cole said. “They deserved a hat tip.”

After winning an MLB-best and franchise-record 107 games in the regular season, the Astros were determined not to suffer the same fate as the Dodgers, winners of 106 games, who were ousted from the playoffs by the wild-card Nationals on Wednesday night.

Houston had been outscored 14-4 in the last two games, but looked sharp at home, where it went 60-21 in the regular season.

A day after the Cardinals scored a post-season-record 10 runs in the first inning of a 13-1 win over the Braves, the Astros scored four runs fast. Now it wasn’t nearly as big as what St. Louis did, but after the Astros were shut down at Tropicana Field, it was just as huge for them.

“It shows a lot of character,” Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said. “Because if we hadn’t gotten up early I think it would have been a different ballgame the way they have their relievers lined up and ready to go. I’m glad it wasn’t a one-run game. Getting four early mattered a lot.”

The Astros will make their seventh appearance in an LCS and are the first team to reach the ALCS three seasons in a row since the Cheap Detroit Tigers Jerseys
did it from 2011-13.

Altuve’s shot gave him 11 post-season homers to pass Chase Utley for most all-time by a second baseman.

Cole extended his major league record by striking out at least 10 batters for the 11th straight game, a stretch where he’s fanned 135.

Cole pitched a 1-2-3 third but didn’t strike anyone out in the frame, ending a streak of 73 consecutive innings with at least one strikeout. The streak, which dated back to Aug. 1, was the longest such streak since 1961, besting the second-best stretch by 33 innings.

George Springer and Brantley hit back-to-back singles and Altuve’s single made it 1-0. Bregman’s double, which landed just in front of the bullpen in right-centre, scored two more to push the lead to 3-0.

Yuli Gurriel’s groundball single to left field added another. Houston’s five hits and four runs set franchise playoff records for most hits and runs in the first inning.

Eric Sogard hit a solo homer in the Tampa Bay second in his first start in almost a month while dealing with a foot injury. But Tampa Bay managed only a single by Ji-Man Choi in the fourth and a walk by Travis d’Arnaud to start the seventh against Cole.

Roberto Osuna pitched a hitless ninth to finish off the win.

Cash had said he thought Glasnow could throw about 90 pitches in this one, but he’d seen enough of the big right-hander after 40 pitches and lifted him with two outs in the third for Blake Snell.

Snell, the 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner, got the next four outs in his second career relief appearance after getting the save in Game 4. The Rays wound up using nine pitchers.

BOSTON — Even a walk-off victory on the final day of the season was tinged with disappointment for these Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys
.

Eduardo Rodriguez missed out on a 20-win season when Boston’s bullpen blew a late lead, but the Red Sox overcame a soaring home run robbery by Stevie Wilkerson to beat the Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys
5-4 Sunday in the regular season finale on Mookie Betts’ ninth-inning dash home.

Betts scored from first on a single by Rafael Devers with no outs. Devers’ hit caromed off shortstop Richie Martin’s glove, causing Wilkerson to hesitate in right. Betts beat a late throw by Wilkerson to give his team a celebratory cap to a frustrating season.

“I think everybody was kind of ready to go. So I just decided to go home,” Betts said.

Wilkerson made a late entry for catch of the year in the eighth. He chased Jackie Bradley Jr.’s fly ball to the edge of the visitors’ bullpen, leaped over the short wall and pulled back Bradley’s would-be homer while nearly tumbling into the seats.

“I knew if I had the space to get to it, I’d have a chance to get it,” Wilkerson said. “I had a good bead on it and just jumped up and grabbed.”

Brandon Workman (10-1) pitched one inning and struck out three to pick up the victory. Dillion Tate (0-2) got the loss for Baltimore (54-108), which was denied its first sweep of the season.

Rodriguez pitched seven innings and was pulled with Boston leading 4-3, putting him in line for a career-high 20th win. But then Baltimore’s Hanser Alberto reached on an error by shortstop Xander Bogaerts leading off the eighth and scored the tying run when Jonathan Villar singled off Matt Barnes.

“That’s something I can’t control as a pitcher,” Rodriguez said. “I can just go out there and get three outs every time I go to the mound.”

Boston finished 84-78 a year after winning a franchise-record 108 games during the regular season. The Orioles made a six-game improvement from 2018.

The Red Sox are the 10th team since 2000 to win the World Series and not qualify for the post-season the following year.

“It was rough. A lot of ups and downs. We never really got hot,” Betts said. “When that happens, this happens.”

While this season is something for the Orioles to build on, the Red Sox trudge into an off-season that promises to bring several changes.

There will be a new leader in baseball operations following the firing of Dave Dombrowski. All-Star slugger J.D. Martinez must decide whether to exercise a player option. Starter Rick Porcello is a free agent. The person hired will have to deal with a payroll crunch that includes finding room for raises for Betts from $20 million and Jackie Bradley Jr. from $8.55 million. Both are eligible for free agency after the 2020 World Series.
BOSTON — The Baltimore Orioles are finding reason to celebrate late in a season that’s included little to cheer.

Renato Núñez homered in his second straight game, John Means pitched five solid innings despite a rocky start and the Orioles outslugged Boston in a 9-4 win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

“The whole club, they’re playing hard,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “Game 161, 50 games out or whatever we are, we just continue to compete. I’m really excited with how we played today. I thought we played with a ton of energy.”

Four home runs certainly helped energize the Orioles, who despite a record of 54-107 have a shot at closing the season by sweeping the defending World Series champions at Fenway Park.

It would be the first — and only — series sweep by the Orioles this season.

“I’m just glad we won the series,” said Richie Martin, one of four Baltimore players to go deep Saturday. “It’s really important that we got the first two games and we’ve got a chance for a sweep, which is pretty cool in Boston. That’s not easy to do.”

DJ Stewart and Trey Mancini also homered for Baltimore, which has won 5 of 8.

Means (12-11) recovered after Xander Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez hit back-to-back homers for Boston in the first. The Red Sox didn’t get another hit until the fifth as Means closed the season with victories in his last two starts and finished with a winning record.

“That’s what I was trying to get,” said Means, who allowed three runs on five hits. He walked two and struck out five. “Obviously my stuff wasn’t there, but to get the win is awesome.”

Martin and Stewart drove in two runs apiece and Mancini capped off the day with a solo homer to right in the ninth, his team-high 35th of the season.

Bogaerts hit a two-run homer and Martinez followed with his 36th of the season in the first, when the Red Sox took a 3-2 lead.

Martin’s solo homer in the second tied it and Núñez put Baltimore ahead again in the third with a towering shot over the Green Monster, his second homer of the series and 31st of the season.

Boston loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but Branden Kline got out of the jam when Brock Holt grounded into a double play.

Jhoulys Chacín (3-12) lasted just 2 2/3 innings for Boston. He allowed four runs on five hits, struck out three and walked one.

GOOD COMPANY

Bogaerts’ 33 homers match his total of the previous two seasons combined. He hit 10 in 2017 and homered 23 times last year. His 116 RBIs this year are the most for a Boston shortstop since Nomar Garciaparra drove in 120 in 2002.

“That’s who he is. That’s the kid that everybody has grown to love here,” manager Alex Cora said of Bogaerts. “He’s a force at this level and he’s taking pride in a lot of things. To see that kind of effort in Game 161, when everybody knows that we’re going home after the game tomorrow, is great.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys
: RF Anthony Santander missed his fourth straight game. Manager Brandon Hyde said Santander was banged up heading into the series.

Red Sox: LF Andrew Benintendi was out of the lineup for the second straight game. Benintendi hasn’t played since leaving Thursday’s game at Texas in the fourth inning after fouling a pitch off his right calf.
“I had memories here and good times here,” Martinez said. “But it’s the business side of it and I always let (agent) Scott (Boras) handle that. But obviously it would be nice to be back.”

Controlling owner John Henry has also vowed to cut back after having baseball’s highest payroll for two straight seasons. Boston is on track to pay a $13 million luxury tax this year on a payroll of $243 million.

Manager Alex Cora, who ownership said will return for a third season no matter who replaces Dombrowksi, said identifying what went wrong in 2019 isn’t hard to put his finger on.

Cora said inconsistent pitching and an eight-day stretch from July 28 through Aug. 4 that saw Boston lose eight straight games — five to the Yankees and three to the Rays — will gnaw at him.

Boston was eight games out of first place in the AL East before that stretch and 14 1/2 out by the end of it.

The Red Sox hit more home runs and scored more runs than in 2018, but poor baserunning and injuries on the pitching staff doomed the club in close games.

On the mound, starters Chris Sale and David Price made only 25 and 22 starts, respectively, as Sale battled elbow issues and Price dealt with elbow and wrist problems.

Firming up the starting rotation and bullpen are areas that ownership has also said will be addressed this off-season.

Cora has been criticized for the message he gave to his team during spring training that this season was about continuing the system that propelled them to win the title.

He disagrees.

“I was wrong saying continuation? Well maybe the other guys that said ‘turn the page’ and ‘this is a new season’ for 20 years have been wrong too,” Cora said.

SOME CATCH

Red Sox analyst Dennis Eckersley told reporters that Boston’s eight-time Gold Glove Award-winning right fielder Dwight Evans texted him during the game to say Wilkerson’s robbery was the best catch ever by a right fielder at Fenway Park.

TALKING ATTENDANCE

An announced crowd of 35,427 was on hand for Sunday’s finale at Fenway Park. The Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys
averaged 35,748 (2,895,575 total) in 2018. It decreased to an average of 35,518 (2,805,919) in 2019, but that was in 79 games because of two games in London against the Yankees.

Just as everybody expected when Andrew Wiggins was drafted with the first-overall pick out of Kansas five years ago and traded to the Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys
, a young Ontario-born player is helping to lead his Western Conference team to relevance and on the road to becoming a true NBA title contender.

Of course, that team isn’t the T-Wolves, and that Ontario-born player isn’t Wiggins. The team is the Denver Nuggets and the player is Kitchener, Ont.’s Jamal Murray, who was drafted two years later. As the Nuggets and Murray hope to compete for a conference crown this season, the Timberwolves enter the year very much an unknown commodity yet again with a ton of high-end talent, but no guarantees the team will be able to harness it into something tangible in a conference filled with strong teams and virtually no margin for error.

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

Only two years ago, the T-Wolves signed Wiggins to a maximum five-year deal worth $147.7 million, coming off a season in which the Vaughan, Ont. native averaged a career-high 23.6 points a game and shot .356 from three. While it undoubtedly carried risk, the commitment was given to a player that then-head coach and team president Tom Thibodeau saw as a franchise cornerstone alongside Karl-Anthony Towns, one of the league’s best young bigs, and the recently acquired Jimmy Butler in what Minnesota belived to be a Big 3 that could rival the Golden State Warriors’ dominance in the West.

Just 24 months later, Thibodeau has been fired, a malcontented Butler was traded and the Timberwolves have a single playoff win to show for what should have been an era with the most promise since a Kevin Garnett-led team reached the Western Conference Finals in 2004.

So just what the hell happened here?

Well, it starts with Wiggins. From both a gameplay standpoint and personal chemistry, Wiggins and Butler never clicked. It was to be expected that Wiggins would cede shot attempts to Butler and he did, going from 19.1 a game in 2016-17 to 15.9 in 2017-18. The bounceback last season wasn’t at the expected level when his FGA rose only to 16.6 a night even with Butler out of the picture for most of the year, but the more galling issue has become Wiggins’ efficiency or lack thereof.

Among qualified players last season, Wiggins’ Player Efficiency Rating (PER) was 217th in the NBA at 12.42. Considering that a replacement-level player’s PER is 15.0, Wiggins is getting max money and playing at level below league average. Just below Wiggins last season at 12.41 was former Toronto Raptors project and now Memphis Grizzlies forward Bruno Caboclo. Among small forwards, the next-worst mark from a player on a max deal was Gordon Hayward of the Boston Celtics, coming off of a horrific leg break, at 15.62.

Looking at win shares, the picture is even bleaker for Wiggins. On the 36-win T-Wolves last season, Towns led the team with 10.4. Wiggins came in at 0.6, 345th in the NBA. Dwight Howard also posted 0.6 last season, but he appeared in nine games. Things aren’t any rosier defensively for Wiggins with his real defensive plus-minus at -1.55, the fourth-worst mark among small forwards in the NBA last season.

Just as Wiggins fell last season, so did the team. A season after their first playoff appearance in 14 years, the Wolves were once again on the outside looking in last April. The team finished dead last in the Northwest for the fourth time in five years and eighth time over the past decade, missing out on the playoffs by 13 games.

“It’s always tough not to be in the playoffs,” Towns told Marc Spears earlier this month. “I live for the playoffs. I have won a lot in my life. And I have expected nothing less in the NBA since day one in training camp as a rookie. … I had a great time in the playoffs, and I learned a lot more things that people don’t get to learn. I learned how to do things to benefit the team as best as possible.”

Now, Wiggins believes he’s done the same after an intense offseason workout regimen and he insists that the best is still yet to come – that his plateauing numbers are a blip and not a trend, something that he will have a chance to prove. With former Houston Rockets executive Gersson Rosas in charge of the front office and Ryan Saunders’ interim label – the son of the late Flip Saunders was elevated from head assistant upon the firing of Thibodeau in January – lifted as head coach, there is the feeling of a tabula rasa in Minneapolis this season where Wiggins will be able to change the narrative around his stagnant career.

“You learn from it,” Wiggins said of last season at team media day in late September, “and it’s nothing but motivation. You go into the summer knowing that you’ve gotta work and people are going to doubt you. People are going to think you lost a step; that you lost all of these things, but all you can focus on is yourself and the fact that I can prove people wrong and get back out there and let people know that I’m still the same player. That’s motivation. It means a lot – it makes me work harder. I want to be great.”

The Timberwolves will settle for good. In Towns, the team has a burgeoning actual, honest-to-goodness superstar who can be mentioned in the same breath as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis and Joel Embiid. The T-Wolves thought they were drafting the second coming of Garnett in Towns and, thus far, he’s mostly lived up to the hype, posting 24.4/12.4 a year ago, both career bests. The potential for Towns to emerge as a top-five player in the NBA is a very real one.

“We can be as good as we want to be, as long as we stay cohesive, we stay unified and continue to play the game we play on a nightly basis,” Towns told Spears. “… It’s easy to win one game. It’s hard to win most of the games in an 82-game season. Obviously, if we are blessed with health and play basketball the way we know we can play basketball, we will be just fine.”

But fine won’t be good enough in a stacked West. On top of more from Wiggins, they’ll need a healthy Jeff Teague, who was limited to only 42 games last season with an ankle injury. When he did play, the team was 23-19 and Teague averaged a career-high 8.2 assists. For the Minnesota offence to click, the team will need Teague as its quarterback.

The team would also like to see a jump in contribution from Josh Okogie in this second year in the league. The 20th overall selection in 2018, Okogie was a revelation for Nigeria during the FIBA World Cup, leading the team in scoring and looking considerably sharper from beyond the arc than he did in his rookie campaign. His jumper needs work, but he’s emerged as a competent wing defender.

Speaking of defending, Robert Covington appeared in only 22 contests for the team last year after coming over from the Philadelphia 76ers as part of the Butler trade, so what he’s capable of offering on the defensive side has yet to truly be seen in the Twin Cities. But a healthy Covington is the best overall defender on the team and capable of going up against virtually any position on the court. With a career three-point shooting percentage of .360, Covington is also one of the few deep-ball threats on the team.

In terms of new additions, the Timberwolves did nothing flashy in the off-season, but added a number of potentially useful role players in former Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys
fan favourite Jake Layman, backup point guard Shabazz Napier, now-journeyman big Noah Vonleh and reserve centre Jordan Bell.

Still, the reality remains it will take nothing short of excellence from the T-Wolves to gain a foothold in a top-heavy conference that features the Warriors, Rockets, Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz, all of whom harbour realistic title aspirations. The Wolves will need to not only be very good, but also fortunate to reach the postseason for just the second time in over a decade and a half. And what if they come short yet again?

If the T-Wolves could find a trade for Wiggins today, they would try to make it happen. For all of his talk of improvement and the intense training he underwent this summer, the chances of the team having already seen the best of the former Jayhawk are very real, making his contract all the more onerous. Should there be a potential exit ramp, it would be something that Minnesota’s management team would be foolish not to explore.

There is, of course, something considerably less palatable that the team might be forced to also consider, perhaps not today or tomorrow, but not far down the road.

In 2007, Garnett wanted a chance to win and was eventually dealt to the Boston Celtics. The trade to acquire Wiggins in 2014 from the Cleveland Cavaliers was one consummated when Kevin Love – the last man earmarked to take over Garnett’s mantle – also sought greener pastures. Historically for the Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys
, a dearth of winning has soured its franchise player on staying with the team for the long run. So it would be folly to not consider the possibility that at some point, the same will happen with Towns.

To be clear, there is no hint right now of Towns being unhappy and he is only entering the first season of a five-year, $190 million max deal signed last year. But losing weighs on a player – we’ve seen that in the past and we’ll see it again in the future. While the team in this current construction is by no means in win-now mode, the impetus for big strides forward for the T-Wolves is evident and just because you can’t hear it loudly right now doesn’t mean that a clock isn’t ticking when it comes to Towns’s long-term future.

Though expectations for the Wolves are modest in comparison to their rivals in the Western Conference, the stakes for Wiggins, Towns and the rest of the team are just as high. The future might not be now for the Timberwolves, but there needs to be a way to get there sooner than later.

NEW YORK — Vancouver captain Bo Horvat wanted to set the tone early after a tough loss the previous day. He got the Cheap Vancouver Canucks Jerseys
started with a needed power-play goal and they bounced back with a big road win.

Brock Boeser and Jay Beagle scored late in Vancouver’s three-goal first period and the Canucks held on to beat the Cheap New York Rangers Jerseys
3-2 on Sunday.

Elias Pettersson added two assists for Vancouver, which bounced back from a 1-0 loss at New Jersey on Saturday to win for the fifth time in six games.

“I took that onus on myself to be the guy to get the boys going,” Horvat said. “I was really upset about the last game, we should have scored more power-play goals and we should have at least gotten a point out of that. … When we do lose games we’re not ones to want to lose three straight, four straight and get on these losing skids. We want to bounce back and have a great game and continue winning.”

Jacob Markstrom, playing for the first time since Oct. 12, stopped 38 shots to win his third straight start after losing his first two.

“A little bit of redemption, but our team played amazing, we really did,” Beagle said. “Marky stood on his head. It was just a good overall win.”

Jesper Fast had a goal and an assist, and Artemi Panarin also scored for New York, which has lost four straight — including three in four days after playing just three times in the previous 14 days. Henrik Lundqvist finished with 40 saves.

“We should be so eager to get out there,” Lundqvist said. “But sometimes it’s hard to get going. That desperation should always be there. Especially losing three in a row.”

Rangers coach David Quinn shook up his lineup during Friday’s 5-2 loss at Washington, moving Chris Kreider to the top line with Panarin and Mika Zibanejad. Pavel Buchnevich was dropped to the second line, and rookie Kaapo Kakko down to the third. Buchnevich ended up on the fourth line during the second period but was back on the second later in the game.

Down 3-1 after 40 minutes, the Rangers came out aggressive in the third and controlled much of the play while outshooting the Canucks 17-6 in the final period.

“We knew they like to play wide-open,” Beagle said. “They have a lot of guys that run and gun. They love to go east-west and hardly ever dump it. … We got the job done.”

Panarin got the Rangers to 3-2 as he got a pass from Fast from behind the net, and quickly put it past Markstrom for his fourth at 5:31.
NEWARK, N.J. — This time, Jack Hughes got the better of his older brother, Quinn.

He had plenty of witnesses, too.

The 18-year-old Hughes scored his first career goal in his first NHL game against his 20-year-old brother Quinn Hughes, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Vancouver Canucks 1-0 on Saturday.

Mackenzie Blackwood stopped 25 shots in his third career shutout, sending New Jersey to its second straight victory after starting the season with six straight losses.

Jack Hughes played in his eighth NHL game after he was selected by New Jersey with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft.

He became the first player to score his first NHL goal in a 1-0 regular-season game since Andreas Athanasiou for Detroit against Washington on Nov. 10, 2015.

“I’ve felt good in every game,” Hughes said. “Each game has been a building block for me. I think it was a little overdue.”

Quinn Hughes was a first-round selection by Vancouver in 2018. There were approximately 80 Hughes family members and friends on hand for their first NHL matchup.

New Jersey went ahead to stay on Hughes’ power-play goal 14:08 into the first period. Taylor Hall kept the puck on his stick while eluding two defenders and fired cross ice to Hughes, who beat Canucks goalie Thatcher Demko.

“It’s such an awesome feeling,” Jack Hughes said. “To come out here and play in front of my family and friends. It’s nice to be able to beat Quinn. The two games we’ve won, we’ve played much better hockey.”

Demko finished with 23 saves for Vancouver, which had won four in a row.

Blackwood was especially stingy in the second period, when he turned aside 14 shots, including three in a frantic 43-second stretch.

With seven minutes left, Elias Pettersson fired a high shot that Blackwood pushed off the crossbar. Then he stopped Alexander Edler on a breakaway after Edler left the penalty box. The rebound bounced out to Edler, who fired it through the crease.

“Everyone is out there playing for each other,” Blackwood said. “No one is being selfish. Everyone is out there doing their jobs. We feed off each other’s energy. When one guy is going well, then the other goes well and it becomes contagious. That helps the goaltender a lot.”

The Devils’ penalty killers had another solid performance, killing off six power plays two days after killing off seven straight chances against the Cheap New York Rangers Jerseys
. The Devils allowed eight power-play goals over their first six losses of the season.

“The penalty kill is because of an attention to detail,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “We’ve been able to clear pucks from our zone. We’ve been able to maintain pressure up ice. In the games we hadn’t won, it was the little things that we didn’t do. I think we’re more consistent.”

NOTES: Although C Nico Hischier missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury, it was the first appearance at home since he finalized a $50.75 million, seven-year contract extension Friday. “I’m happy it’s a long-term deal,” Hischier said. “I’m happy with the direction the team is going in. I’ve been treated well here. I have felt welcomed here since Day 1. I have no reason not to sign here long term. I don’t have to worry about that now.” The 20-year-old Hischier, the No. 1 pick overall in 2017, could have become a restricted free agent at season’s end. … The Devils activated D Andy Greene off the injured list and put D Will Butcher (upper body) on the injured list. … Hughes scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 19, 2019, and Hischier scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 19, 2017. … Hughes (18 years, 158 days) is the second-youngest player in franchise history to score his first NHL goal. Craig Wolanin (18 years, 135 days) is the youngest. … The Canucks wore their 50th anniversary jerseys with the team’s original colours.
New York had several flurries of chances at the tying goal, pulling Lundqvist for an extra skater with 1:51 to go, but couldn’t get another one past Markstrom.

“We’ve got to play smarter,” Zibanejad said. “And it just shows you can’t just play for 25, 30 minutes. … You’ve got to play all 60 minutes. The whole game is not going to look perfect; it’s not going to be all good stuff, but we’ve got to learn to manage the game a little bit more.”

The Rangers finished 0 for 3 on the power play to fall to 1 for 17 with the man-advantage over the last four games.

With the Rangers trailing 3-0 after a lacklustre first period, Fast got them on the scoreboard late in the second. Standing in front of Markstrom, Fast deflected Jacob Trouba’s hard point shot past the goalie for his second.

The Canucks got off to a fast start with three goals in the first period while outshooting the Rangers 20-13. Vancouver scored on the power play, at even strength and short-handed.

Horvat took a pass from Pettersson and beat Lundqvist on a power play from the inside edge of the left circle for his second of the season and 100th of his career at 6:01. The Cheap Vancouver Canucks Jerseys
came in with the league’s worst man-advantage and were 0 for 12 the previous two games.

Boeser made it 2-0 with 6:26 left in the opening period as he got a pass from Pettersson between the circles and fired a shot that went off Lundqvist’s glove and in for his second.

Then, with Tyler Myers off for hooking, Beagle brought the puck up the right side and beat Lundqvist on the glove side for his first of the season and fourth career short-handed goal.

NOTES: Horvat joined Calgary’s Sean Monahan, Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon and Florida’s Aleksander Barkov as the only players from the 2013 draft to reach the 100-goal mark. … The teams will conclude their season series Jan. 4 at Vancouver. … Lundqvist appeared in his 861st game, moving past Hall of Famer Gump Worsley for sole possession of 11th place on the NHL’s all-time list. He is seven away from tying former goalie Grant Fuhr for 10th place. Lundqvist also tied Jean Ratelle for sixth place on the Rangers’ franchise list. … New York has given up at least one power-play goal in five of its six games.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Cam Talbot and Michael Stone haven’t played much through the first three weeks of the Cheap Calgary Flames Jerseys
‘ season. They made the most of their opportunities Sunday night.

Talbot made 29 saves and Stone scored the Flames’ first goal as they rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Cheap Anaheim Ducks Jerseys
.

Mikael Backlund broke a tie with 11:03 left, and Calgary snapped a three-game road losing streak, bouncing back from a disappointing 4-1 loss at Los Angeles on Saturday which some called “embarrassing” due to their effort.

“I thought everyone took accountability for last night,” Talbot said. “I liked our work ethic and dedication in our zone to get the pucks out.”

It was Talbot’s second start and first win with the Flames. The seven-year veteran, who was with Edmonton and Philadelphia last season, signed with Calgary as a free agent.

He allowed up an early second-period goal to Jakob Silfverberg but stopped Silfverberg on a breakaway midway through the period before making 11 saves in the third, many on one-timers. Nick Ritchie had a point-blank chance in front of the net but could not convert.

“When they pushed, Talbot was there,” Calgary coach Bill Peters said. “The work he has had with us has been good. We have a lot of confidence in him and as we get busier you will see him more.”

Stone — who was playing in only his third game — tied it at 15:32 of the second with a one-timer from near the blueline for his first point. Anaheim goaltender John Gibson didn’t get a clear look as Calgary’s Sean Monahan and Anaheim’s Michael Del Zotto were battling in front of the net when Stone’s slap shot got through.

“It felt good to contribute, it’s been a while since I’ve done that,” Stone said. “To get in there and get rewarded was nice.”
LOS ANGELES — Todd McLellan was beginning to worry about his Los Angeles Kings doing the right things but not getting the desired results for their hard work. The first-year coach can breathe a little easier now.

The Kings played one of their most complete games of the young season with a 4-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

“You eventually get concerned about the guys giving what they have and not getting rewarded. Will they begin to cheat, take shortcuts or wander from the program? They didn’t do that and that’s a good sign,” McLellan said.

Jeff Carter, who was one of seven Kings to get on the scoresheet, led the way with a goal and assist while Jonathan Quick made 23 saves for his first victory in four starts.

Tyler Toffoli, Anze Kopitar and Ilya Kovalchuk also scored for the Kings, who put the game out of reach with a three-goal second period.

Quick was on track to get a shutout until Mikael Backlund scored on a penalty shot with 2:10 remaining.

“We played great. We did a good job taking away their main threats along with winning faceoffs,” Quick said.

David Rittich, who came in with a 2.55 goals-against-average, allowed four goals on 28 shots in two periods. Cam Talbot came in for the final 20 minutes and made eight saves for the Flames, who have dropped three straight road games.

“I think our first period was ok. It is a tough building and we were down one goal,” Calgary defenceman Travis Hamonic said. “It was probably in the first seven or eight minutes of the second period where the game got away from us. We need a better pushback from the group.”

Toffoli scored 75 seconds into the game to end the goal drought at 136 minutes, 51 seconds. The Kings’ centre got the puck on a pass from Blake Lizotte just outside the Calgary zone, made a nice move past two Flames defenders and put a wrist shot past Rittich for his third goal of the season. It was only second time this season the Kings scored first.

“If we’re going to start a game, that’s the best way to do it,” McLellan said. “You could kind of feel a little bit of relief on the bench and then it was time to go back to work and the guys built off of it. We needed it and finally got rewarded.”

Carter got his first goal of the season 15 seconds into the second when his backhand went off the skate of Calgary defenceman Mark Giordano and found its way into the net.

Kopitar scored the Kings first short-handed goal of the season five minutes later when he beat Rittich on his glove side on a breakaway. Los Angeles came into the game with the league’s second-worst penalty-kill unit but was 5 of 5 against the Flames.

Kovalchuk then added a power-play goal at 8:58 with a slap shot from just beyond the left faceoff circle after a cross-ice pass from Michael Amadio. It was the Kings’ first goal with the man-advantage in six games and snapped skid where they were 0 for 19. It is also the third goal of the season for Kopitar and Kovalchuk.

“For us today the scoring was great, but the checking was better and that allowed us to play with a lead,” McLellan said. “I thought for tonight 52 minutes of our play was good. Then with eight minutes we strayed from it. We still have a lot to learn from it. We still see old habits slip in. There are things that need to be addressed and fixed.”

NOTES: Carter also won 12 of 17 faceoffs. … Kopitar is three points shy of 900 for his career. … Calgary is 0-2 in the first game of back-to-backs after going 9-1 last season. … Flames F Elias Lindholm had a three-game goal streak snapped.
Backlund scored when he got a pass from Matthew Tkachuk on a 2-on-1 rush after a neutral zone turnover and beat Gibson with a snap shot from the right faceoff circle.

“I don’t think Gibson expected an early pass. I was going to catch it and just changed my mind,” said Backlund, who has a goal in two straight games.

Gibson made 27 saves for Anaheim, which lost for the first time in five home games.

Silfverberg opened the scoring 12 seconds into the second when he beat Talbot top shelf from the left faceoff circle after taking the pass from Hampus Lindholm. Silfverberg — who has five goals this season — has scored in three straight games.

“I thought we had numerous chances to not only tie it but go ahead by a couple and we just couldn’t get it in the net,” Anaheim coach Dallas Eakins said.

NOTES: The Ducks were 0 for 3 on the power play and have just one goal in 22 chances this season. … Calgary forward Milan Lucic skated in his 900th game. He is in his first season with the Cheap Calgary Flames Jerseys
after previous stints with Boston, Los Angeles and Edmonton. … Anaheim D Josh Manson has three assists in the last three games. … The 16 goals allowed by the Cheap Anaheim Ducks Jerseys
at home are the least they have allowed through five games. The previous mark was 17 in 2006-07.

Wholesale MLB Jerseys Webstie For Sale Online Store

Joe Girardi’s return to the Major League Baseball coaching ranks could be close at hand.

USA Baseball announced on Wednesday that Girardi has stepped down as manager of the United States to pursue a managerial opportunity in the MLB.

“We are grateful that Joe was a part of Team USA and we appreciate the time and preparation he dedicated to our endeavor of qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games,” said USA Baseball CEO Paul Seiler in a statement. “On behalf of the organization, we wish him the best of luck as he seeks a manager position in Major League Baseball.

With the hiring of Joe Maddon by the Cheap Los Angeles Angels Jerseys
, there are now seven managerial vacancies in the league.
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Joe Maddon is back under the halo.

Maddon agreed to a three-year deal to become the Los Angeles Angels’ manager on Wednesday, reuniting the World Series-winning former manager of the Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys
with the organization where he spent the first three decades of his baseball career.

“We are thrilled that Joe is coming back home and bringing an exciting brand of baseball to our fans,” general manager Billy Eppler said. “Every stop he has made throughout his managerial career, he has built a culture that is focused on winning while also allowing his players to thrive. We believe Joe will be a great asset for our club and look forward to him leading the team to another World Series championship.”

The Angels will formally introduce the 65-year-old Maddon at a news conference next week, but he already knows his way around Angel Stadium.

Maddon signed with the Angels as an undrafted catcher in 1975, and he spent the next 31 seasons working at almost every level of the organization as a player, coach and manager. He served as a big league assistant coach under five managers, and he had two stints as the Angels’ interim manager.

He was the Angels’ bench coach alongside manager Mike Scioscia during their championship season in 2002. He left to manage Tampa Bay in 2006 for nine mostly successful seasons, followed by a big-money move to Chicago to make history.

The three-time Manager of the Year left the Cubs by mutual consent last month after they missed the playoffs for the first time in his five-year tenure. He’ll still likely never have to buy a drink in Chicago again because of 2016, when he led the Cubs to their first World Series title in 108 years.

Maddon replaces Brad Ausmus, who was fired after one season when the Angels finished 72-90, their worst record since 1999. Ausmus was abruptly dismissed shortly after Maddon became available, and most observers assumed Angels owner Arte Moreno had his eye on a reunion with Maddon, who was the Angels’ bench coach when Moreno bought the club in 2003.

The Angels also interviewed veteran managers John Farrell and Buck Showalter and Padres hitting coach Johnny Washington for the job, but Maddon was the choice. Maddon was expected to be a valued candidate for other managerial openings around the majors, but he was clearly eager for a reunion.

Maddon kept a home in Long Beach during his 14 seasons away from Anaheim, and he has fond feelings for the organization that gave him his start.

That organization is experiencing hard times: The Angels have endured four straight losing seasons for the first time since the 1970s, and they still haven’t won a playoff game with Mike Trout and Albert Pujols on their roster, making just one three-game post-season appearance after winning the AL West in 2014.

The Angels also were rocked this month by revelations about the role of a team employee in procuring opioids for pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who was found dead in his hotel room July 1.

The problems didn’t deter Maddon from reuniting with the Angels, where he inherits a roster with Trout as its centerpiece. The probable three-time AL MVP is signed to a 12-year, $426.5 million contract that should keep him in Anaheim for the bulk of his career.

The Cheap Los Angeles Angels Jerseys
‘ starting pitching was easily their biggest weakness in 2019, but the rotation will benefit next season from the return of Shohei Ohtani, the two-way star who spent this year solely as a designated hitter while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Eppler also will attempt to be active in the free agent market to supplement a roster finally starting to bear fruit from Eppler’s years of rehabilitating a barren farm system.

Maddon’s managerial career away from Anaheim began with two losing seasons in Tampa Bay, but has been impressive ever since. The Rays made a 31-game improvement and won the AL pennant in 2008, leading to the first of Maddon’s three Manager of the Year awards.

He had five 90-win teams in Tampa Bay and four more in Chicago, including the 103-win Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys
who went on to that historic World Series victory. Maddon has received praise for his combination of a charismatic, old-school baseball personality and a willingness to adapt to the new world of analytics and statistical decision-making.
Three-time World Series champion and former Girardi teammate Scott Brosius takes over as Team USA manager for Girardi.

“Scott Brosius is respected across the baseball industry for his time as both a player and a coach,” Seiler said. “He possesses a tremendous resume and we are proud to have him step in and lead us in the Premier12 tournament. From top to bottom, the coaching staff we assembled boasts a wealth of international playing and coaching experience, and we are confident in their ability to help us achieve the goals we have collectively set for this team.”

Retiring after a 15-year playing career in 2003, Girardi became manager of the Florida Marlins in 2006, winning National League Manager of the Year in his first season, but was fired after the season.

He became bench boss of the New York Yankees – the team with whom Girardi won three World Series – in 2008.

Girardi would go on to spend a decade in the Bronx, posting an overall mark of 910-710, reaching the postseason on six occasions and winning the 2009 World Series.

The Yankees chose not to renew Girardi’s contract following the 2017 season.

Among the clubs currently looking for a manager are the Chicago Cubs, a team with whom Girardi spent seven seasons as a player over two stints. Girardi is believed to have spoken to the team about the job and is also expected to interview for the Philadelphia Phillies vacancy.

Wholesale Discount Fake NBA Jerseys From China Online

Officially, it’s an NBA first: Coaches successfully argued referees’ calls Saturday.

Sacramento’s Luke Walton became the first coach to win a challenge — a new option for coaches to use in the NBA this season — when he asked for a review of an out-of-bounds call during the third quarter of the Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys
‘ game against the Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys
in Mumbai, India.

Review showed that Walton was right and the Kings retained possession. About a minute later, Pacers coach Nate McMillan wanted a review of a goaltending call made against Indiana centre Myles Turner — and he, too, was proved correct, resulting in a jump ball at midcourt instead of two points for the Kings.

So Mumbai becomes the answer to a trivia question — the site of the first successful NBA coaches’ challenge. The Pacers and Kings wrapped up a two-games trip to India, the NBA’s first two games played in that country, with Indiana winning 130-106 to complete a sweep of the series.

“Thank you India for allowing us the opportunity to make history…thankful to be a part of this moment,” Sacramento’s Richaun Holmes tweeted postgame.

Coaches may challenge one call per game, provided what they’re challenging meets certain criteria and if they have a timeout remaining. The timeout is charged if the challenge is unsuccessful, and the challenge isn’t retained even if it results in a call being overturned.

PACERS 130, KINGS 102

Alize Johnson scored 17 points to lead eight Pacers in double figures, and Indiana scored 46 points in the second quarter alone on the way to the easy win.
SAN FRANCISCO — New Warriors big man Willie Cauley-Stein will be sidelined for training camp with a left foot injury, while Klay Thompson is making progress from a July 2 surgery for a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee but will be out at least until the All-Star break.

General manager Bob Myers said at Monday’s media day that Cauley-Stein strained his foot last week while scrimmaging. Cauley-Stein is scheduled to be reevaluated in about a month with an update on his status expected at the end of October.

“It’s disappointing for him mostly, I know he was ready to go,” Myers said at the new Chase Center, where the Warriors will begin training camp Tuesday. “You like to have new players get a chance to get acclimated in camp, so for him and obviously the coaches, myself, the whole organization, we want him to get back. The good news is he will be back. But camp is a formative time for him and his teammates. Nothing you can do, injuries are clearly a part of it. We want everybody to be healthy. Hopefully he’ll be able to watch and pick up on some things without participating and stay as in shape as he possibly can.”

Thompson injured his knee in a Game 6 NBA Finals loss June 13 to Toronto that gave the Raptors their first NBA title. Thompson said since surgery, “I’ve made huge strides.”

Thompson said he will stick to the rehab plan and that it’s not worth pushing too hard too soon at this stage.

“The last thing you want to do is rush back, especially for a player like me who wants to play ’til his late 30s,” Thompson said.

The No. 6 pick in the 2015 draft, Cauley-Stein averaged 10.1 points and 6.4 rebounds with the Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys
last season.

Cauley-Stein was on crutches and in a walking boot. He said it happened playing a pickup game.

“I went for a lob, came down awkward on it, put a lot of pressure on the top of my foot,” he said.

Golden State doesn’t have its usual depth at centre but re-signed Kevon Looney to a three-year contract and he will lead the way.

“Kevon just keeps getting better, whether it’s talked about or not he puts the work in,” Stephen Curry said.

Looney earned the bulk of the minutes at centre during the post-season and even returned from a cartilage fracture in his right collarbone area before re-injuring it.

Other centre options for camp are Omari Spellman and Serbian forward Alen Smailagic, who played for the G-League Warriors last season.

“Looney is the starting centre. Yeah, I’ve got bigger plans for Looney anyway,” coach Steve Kerr said. “I think I’ve told you guys that. He’s one of our best players. He’s moved up the ladder considerably with all of the losses that we’ve had. So not only is he one of our best players but he’s one of the guys who has the most experience and the feel that we need with this group to try to incorporate the young guys.”

When told once again he’s the oldest player on the roster at age 31, Curry said emphatically, “Stop reminding me!”

The two-time MVP is eager for a new challenge, too.

The rebuilt Warriors, with eight new players and minus several key veterans who keyed recent post-season runs, have reached five straight NBA Finals. But two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant departed for the Brooklyn Nets this off-season.

“As a team, for me, I’ve just been thinking about how this building is going to create an opportunity for us to kind of walk into a new era, appreciating the accomplishments we have, the five Finals in a row, chasing more, all the things that we did in Oakland and at Oracle, but for all the new guys, we are going to be a different team and embrace that,” Curry said.

Kerr compared it to going into his first camp as coach in 2014-15.

“So five years ago, when we were really brand new to each other and getting used to one another and getting the system kind of to the point where we felt comfortable with what we were doing,” Kerr said. “We were experimenting with a lot of different things before we kind of settled on a rotation and how we were going to play, what our defence would look like exactly. I think that’ll be a similar feel this year. We have a lot to experiment with, a lot of combination possibilities, so it’s a really, really important camp, and I would say we will have to work much harder than we have had to the last four seasons because of the number of new players. We’ve got a lot of work to do.”
Aaron Holiday scored 16 points and JaKarr Sampson had 15 for the Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys
. They outrebounded Sacramento 51-35 and had 35 assists on 49 field goals.

Buddy Hield scored 17 points and Marvin Bagley III added 15 for Sacramento.

LAKERS 123, WARRIORS 101

At San Francisco, Anthony Davis had 22 points and 10 rebounds in his preseason debut — playing only 18 minutes, all in the first half — for Los Angeles and the Lakers opened Golden State’s new Chase Center with a win.

LeBron James had 15 points and eight assists in 18 minutes for the Lakers. JaVale McGee made all five of his shots for 10 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.

Stephen Curry scored 18 points for the Warriors. Jordan Poole added 17 for Golden State, which was just 11 of 42 from 3-point range.

Davis had the first points — preseason points, anyway — in the arena’s history, putting in the rebound of a miss by James 1:13 into the contest.

MAGIC 125, SPURS 89

At San Antonio, Orlando outscored the Spurs 41-17 in the third quarter to turn a close game into a runaway.

Mo Bamba had 18 points for the Magic, while Aaron Gordon and Terrence Ross each had 14.

Dejounte Murray, playing in an NBA game for the first time in nearly a year after missing all of last season with a knee injury, had 11 points in 14 1/2 minutes for San Antonio. Bryn Forbes led the Spurs with 24 points, going 5 for 6 from 3-point range.

JAZZ 133, ADELAIDE 36ERS 81

At Salt Lake City, Tony Bradley had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Jeff Green scored 16 points to lead seven Utah players scoring in double figures.

Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley — who was acquired via trade from the Memphis Grizzlies in July — did not play (rest) for the Jazz.

Jerome Randall led Adelaide with 18 points and Eric Griffin added 12 points, six rebounds and four blocks.

Cheap Fake Nike NHL Jerseys 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Blue Jackets knew to be successful this season they needed scoring production from their younger players and strong goaltending.

On Wednesday night, they got both.

Sonny Milano and Alexander Wennberg each scored for the first time this season to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Cheap Dallas Stars Jerseys
3-2.

Columbus (3-3-0) won back-to-back games and pulled to .500 with its eighth consecutive victory over the Stars (1-6-1). Joonis Korpisalo turned away 30 shots to net his third win.

Ben Bishop made 32 saves for Dallas, who have lost four straight.

Zach Werenski got the scoring started at 7:42 of the first, while Wennberg made it 2-0 at 15:01.

Miro Heiskanen cut the lead to 2-1, scoring his second goal of the year for the Stars on a delayed penalty.

Milano gave Columbus insurance at 9:07 of the third with a highlight-reel goal, skating between two defenders and shooting from between his legs to go top shelf over Bishop. Jakob Lilja recorded his first NHL point with the primary assist.

“It was the best angle to get on net, and it went in,” Milano said. “I was thinking maybe to backhand it, but it went through the legs.”
The Cheap New Jersey Devils Jerseys
and Minnesota Wild are both off to slow starts this season, but according to TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Pierre LeBrun, neither team is considering a coaching change right now.

New Jersey did. however, make a change to their coaching staff on Wednesday, announcing that assistant general manager Tom Fitzgerald will join head coach John Hynes’ staff and serve as an assistant coach effective immediately.

#NJDevils news:

Assistant General Manager Tom Fitzgerald will join John Hynes’ staff today and serve in an assistant coach capacity.

— New Jersey Devils (@NJDevils) October 16, 2019
The Devils, who added P.K. Subban, Wayne Simmonds and No. 1 overall pick Jack Hughes in the off-season, are winless through six games (0-4-2), but McKenzie noted Tuesday the blame for the slow start lies beyond just Hynes.

“They’ve not been playing well at all,” McKenzie said on Insider Trading. “So much so that today there was fake Twitter news that the New Jersey Devils had actually fired head coach John Hynes and his entire staff and it was not true at all. And it’s not something that general manager Ray Shero is considering at this time.

“So, listen, there have been so many problems with the Devils in the early going. Their goaltending hasn’t been very good. Their D hasn’t been very good. They’ve had injuries up front and, by the way, Nico Hischier is believed to be day-to-day with an injury. So we’ll see how long he’s going to be out, but maybe not that long. At some point maybe Ray Shero is going to have to look to do something to shore up his lineup. But firing the coach, at this moment in time, is not one of those considerations.”

Hynes, 44, is in his fifth season behind the bench with the Devils. He has a 141-150-43 record since joining the team, reaching the playoffs once – a first-round exit in 2017-18. Prior to joining the Cheap New Jersey Devils Jerseys
, he spent six seasons as head coach of the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

The Wild, meanwhile, dropped to 1-5 with their 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night. The team is coming off a tumultuous off-season which saw general manager Paul Fenton fired after just one season on the job and replaced by Bill Guerin.

“It’s pretty high with new GM Bill Guerin,” LeBrun said of the patience level in Minnesota. “It’s already led to some speculation, obviously, [about] Bruce Boudreau’s future and it makes sense. I mean, he’s a coach that’s been inherited by a new GM. He’s been there awhile. His contract as a coach is done at the end of the year. He has a couple of years tacked onto that as a consultant, but the guy wants to coach. So, all of the elements are there where you understand the speculation.

“But, in speaking with Bill Guerin on Tuesday, he said, ‘Listen, I respect Bruce Boudreau. I’m going to be patient here.’ When he says patient, he means not just with him but with the entire roster before he starts making big changes. To me, I don’t see anything happening there imminently in terms of the head coach.”

Boudreau is in his fourth season as head coach of the Wild, having joined the team after a five-year stint with the Anaheim Ducks. He has a 132-91-28 record with Minnesota and led the team to a postseason berth in each of his first two seasons before missing the playoffs last spring. The 2007-08 Jack Adams Award winner, Boudreau has a 541-283-108 record in 932 games as a head coach with the Washington Capitals, Ducks and Wild.

Along with the Wild, the Dallas Stars are also off to a rough start (1-5-1) in the Central Division, and also have just one win in seven games this season. According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, however, the Stars are looking to a free agent signee to boost their lineup.

“A tough start for the Dallas Stars out of the gate as well. But the Stars organization believes they are a better team than their record clearly indicates,” Dreger said. “There’s no sense of panic coming from management or the coaching staff. In fact, they’re hoping that veteran Corey Perry can inject some competitiveness into the lineup. He could play as early as Wednesday. If not, then Friday. He’ll help bring some edge to a team that needs to push harder and they’re hoping he can help a sluggish power play as well.”

Stars head coach Jim Montgomery in his second season on the job and led the team to the second round of the playoffs last spring.
Columbus coach John Tortorella called the goal “ridiculous.”

“He made a great move to enter the zone, beats a forward at the blue line and there were still two checkers coming on him,” Tortorella said. “It’s a hell of a goal.”

Joe Pavelski scored with 4.5 seconds remaining, but it was too little too late.

The Cheap Dallas Stars Jerseys
, who have been hindered by poor starts, came out strong, outshooting the Blue Jackets 17-11 in the first. Columbus had a 9-6 shot advantage through a scoreless second period and continued to dominate in the third.

“I thought we had an excellent first period,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said. “I thought we were skating. I didn’t love our puck management in the second. I thought in the third we were working, trying to tie it up. We gave up too many odd-man rushes. We didn’t do it together enough. There were a lot of positives to build off of.”

Bishop agreed.

“As frustrated as we are, there is still 90% of the season left,” Bishop said. “There is still time to fix this ship, but it needs to be more urgency from everybody. We have to find.a way to get the W. No matter what it is.”

Joe Girardi’s return to the Major League Baseball coaching ranks could be close at hand.

USA Baseball announced on Wednesday that Girardi has stepped down as manager of the United States to pursue a managerial opportunity in the MLB.

“We are grateful that Joe was a part of Team USA and we appreciate the time and preparation he dedicated to our endeavor of qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games,” said USA Baseball CEO Paul Seiler in a statement. “On behalf of the organization, we wish him the best of luck as he seeks a manager position in Major League Baseball.

With the hiring of Joe Maddon by the Cheap Los Angeles Angels Jerseys
, there are now seven managerial vacancies in the league.

Three-time World Series champion and former Girardi teammate Scott Brosius takes over as Team USA manager for Girardi.

“Scott Brosius is respected across the baseball industry for his time as both a player and a coach,” Seiler said. “He possesses a tremendous resume and we are proud to have him step in and lead us in the Premier12 tournament. From top to bottom, the coaching staff we assembled boasts a wealth of international playing and coaching experience, and we are confident in their ability to help us achieve the goals we have collectively set for this team.”
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Joe Maddon is back under the halo.

Maddon agreed to a three-year deal to become the Los Angeles Angels’ manager on Wednesday, reuniting the World Series-winning former manager of the Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys
with the organization where he spent the first three decades of his baseball career.

“We are thrilled that Joe is coming back home and bringing an exciting brand of baseball to our fans,” general manager Billy Eppler said. “Every stop he has made throughout his managerial career, he has built a culture that is focused on winning while also allowing his players to thrive. We believe Joe will be a great asset for our club and look forward to him leading the team to another World Series championship.”

The Angels will formally introduce the 65-year-old Maddon at a news conference next week, but he already knows his way around Angel Stadium.

Maddon signed with the Angels as an undrafted catcher in 1975, and he spent the next 31 seasons working at almost every level of the organization as a player, coach and manager. He served as a big league assistant coach under five managers, and he had two stints as the Angels’ interim manager.

He was the Angels’ bench coach alongside manager Mike Scioscia during their championship season in 2002. He left to manage Tampa Bay in 2006 for nine mostly successful seasons, followed by a big-money move to Chicago to make history.

The three-time Manager of the Year left the Cubs by mutual consent last month after they missed the playoffs for the first time in his five-year tenure. He’ll still likely never have to buy a drink in Chicago again because of 2016, when he led the Cubs to their first World Series title in 108 years.

Maddon replaces Brad Ausmus, who was fired after one season when the Angels finished 72-90, their worst record since 1999. Ausmus was abruptly dismissed shortly after Maddon became available, and most observers assumed Angels owner Arte Moreno had his eye on a reunion with Maddon, who was the Angels’ bench coach when Moreno bought the club in 2003.

The Angels also interviewed veteran managers John Farrell and Buck Showalter and Padres hitting coach Johnny Washington for the job, but Maddon was the choice. Maddon was expected to be a valued candidate for other managerial openings around the majors, but he was clearly eager for a reunion.

Maddon kept a home in Long Beach during his 14 seasons away from Anaheim, and he has fond feelings for the organization that gave him his start.

That organization is experiencing hard times: The Angels have endured four straight losing seasons for the first time since the 1970s, and they still haven’t won a playoff game with Mike Trout and Albert Pujols on their roster, making just one three-game post-season appearance after winning the AL West in 2014.

The Angels also were rocked this month by revelations about the role of a team employee in procuring opioids for pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who was found dead in his hotel room July 1.

The problems didn’t deter Maddon from reuniting with the Angels, where he inherits a roster with Trout as its centerpiece. The probable three-time AL MVP is signed to a 12-year, $426.5 million contract that should keep him in Anaheim for the bulk of his career.

‘ starting pitching was easily their biggest weakness in 2019, but the rotation will benefit next season from the return of Shohei Ohtani, the two-way star who spent this year solely as a designated hitter while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Eppler also will attempt to be active in the free agent market to supplement a roster finally starting to bear fruit from Eppler’s years of rehabilitating a barren farm system.

Maddon’s managerial career away from Anaheim began with two losing seasons in Tampa Bay, but has been impressive ever since. The Rays made a 31-game improvement and won the AL pennant in 2008, leading to the first of Maddon’s three Manager of the Year awards.

He had five 90-win teams in Tampa Bay and four more in Chicago, including the 103-win Cubs who went on to that historic World Series victory. Maddon has received praise for his combination of a charismatic, old-school baseball personality and a willingness to adapt to the new world of analytics and statistical decision-making.
Retiring after a 15-year playing career in 2003, Girardi became manager of the Florida Marlins in 2006, winning National League Manager of the Year in his first season, but was fired after the season.

He became bench boss of the New York Yankees – the team with whom Girardi won three World Series – in 2008.

Girardi would go on to spend a decade in the Bronx, posting an overall mark of 910-710, reaching the postseason on six occasions and winning the 2009 World Series.

The Yankees chose not to renew Girardi’s contract following the 2017 season.

Among the clubs currently looking for a manager are the Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys
, a team with whom Girardi spent seven seasons as a player over two stints. Girardi is believed to have spoken to the team about the job and is also expected to interview for the Philadelphia Phillies vacancy.
