SAN MARTIN, Calif. Mike Montgomery Jersey . -- When Gerina Piller hit her tee shot into a hazard and double-bogeyed the ninth hole at CordeValle Golf Club on Friday during the second round of the U.S. Womens Open, one interested and knowledgeable member of her gallery wasnt worried.Shell find a way to get it back, said her husband, Martin, who plays on the PGA Tour. I dont really get nervous watching her. Her game is pretty good.Indeed, it is. While Martin looked on in shorts and a T-shirt, protecting his fair complexion with a sun umbrella, Gerina did what she has done often recently: get in contention to win a tournament. Piller rallied quickly after making a 7 on No. 9 with two birdies on the next three holes. Two bogeys on the closing stretch gave her an even-par 72 and 36-hole total of 142.Being 2-under, I dont think Im far off, Piller said. There are some tough holes out there, and the wind can switch at any second. Thats the great thing about the U.S. Open. It keeps a lot of people in it.Piller, 31, is within striking distance of her first LPGA victory and also giving herself a shot at moving into the top 15 of the Rolex Rankings, from her current 16th position, and making the U.S. Olympic womens golf team when qualifying is finalized on Monday. Lexi Thompson (No. 4) and Stacy Lewis (No. 8) have locked up berths on the U.S. team. Jessica Korda (No. 24) is in position to make a big move after shooting 4-under for 36 holes, while Brittany Lincicome (No. 25) hurt her chances for a late surge after a 75-72 start.With a strong finish, Piller can also vault past Bo-Mee Lee of South Korea, who entered the weekend ranked No. 14 in the Rolex Rankings but missed the cut with a 6-over 150I think it would be a really big deal for me, personally, Piller said earlier this week of the Olympics. I love my country. I love America. And nothing gives me more honor than to put on the Stars and Stripes. And to have that honor, to represent your country at an event like that, would be pretty awesome.The highlight of Pillers career came last fall at the Solheim Cup, when, with a dramatic American comeback hanging in the balance, she sank a 10-foot par putt to beat Caroline Masson as the U.S. rallied from far behind to defeat Europe.Thats something shell remember the rest of her life, Martin said. Anytime youre playing for your country, it just means more. It was a time where she clutched it up and did something. Not only was it great for her but it was great for all the other girls. For them to come back from that deficit was pretty remarkable.Buoyed by coming through under extreme pressure, Piller has had three top-three finishes -- and four other top-10s -- this season, but is still looking for her first-career win. Martin, meanwhile, hasnt experienced victory on the PGA Tour yet, but has five career Web.com Tour wins.I wish I knew what that secret sauce was, Martin said. It seems like when you win a tournament, you save shots that you would normally waste. You get a ball up-and-down. Between finishing 10th and finishing first, theres not a ton of difference. Its frustrating when youre close to lead and dont pull it out, but at the same time, youre playing really well. And shes done a really good job of reminding herself that. Youre playing against the best in the world -- its going to be hard.Piller is trying to keep things simple and not let the Olympics situation complicate her mindset.That [the Olympics] is on the line, but thats something I cant control, Piller said. I cant control where I finish. I can control the process. And so thats kind of my main goal this week is just sticking with the process. And even with trying to win this tournament, thats obviously an outcome. And if I come in here giving every shot my all, with my ability I think that Ill be in contention and hopefully get my first win. And if I do, then that will definitely take care of that world ranking.If she does qualify for the Games, will she play given the concerns about health and safety in Brazil? She hasnt made up her mind yet, Martin said. Its kind of been like if she makes the team then shell cross that bridge. I dont know what shell decide. Knowing her, shell probably want to go and represent her country.The Pillers are spending the week at Juli Inksters home in Los Altos, California. Inkster, who captained the 2015 U.S. Solheim Cup team, is more than a Hall of Fame golfer and inspirational leader, according to Gerina.Shes actually a really good cook, believe it or not, Gerina said. I havent had a bad meal over there. Her chicken parm is pretty money.The murder of five Dallas police officers Thursday night was particularly tough on Gerina. The Pillers live near Dallas, where Martin was born. Gerinas step-father, Alan Stevenson, has been on the police force in Roswell, New Mexico, Gerinas hometown, for two decades.Its heart-wrenching, because police officers are humans, Piller said. Theyre not perfect. There are some who may do something wrong. They have less than seconds to make a decision. Im 100 percent with the police. My father retires this year. Im super excited for him. Hes done everything from working on the streets to doing polygraphs. Right now, he works on the task force. Hes a commander.On the weekend, playing a game, Piller will try to be in command of her skills.I think shes already kind of a star now, Martin said.

PITTSBURGH -- Tony Romo will be back in uniform next Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys host the Baltimore Ravens. Shaquille ONeal Lakers Jersey .The leading passer in franchise history however, wont be under center. As much respect as owner Jerry Jones has for Romo, even Jones isnt going to go away from one of the hottest hands in the NFL, one that has the streaking Cowboys atop the NFC East with no signs of slowing.Its your job for now, Dak Prescott.A few more games like the 319-yard, two-touchdown performance in Sundays 35-30 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and it may be yours for good.I think the longer he plays like this, the more we have a chance to have another win, Jones said. Everybody here wants to do one thing and thats win. And theres nobody that would introduce any other issue or any other consideration than doing what it takes to win the game.Romo included, apparently. Though Romo is practicing and fully recovered from the back injury he suffered in August, Jones plans to stick with Prescott with the Cowboys (8-1) riding an eight-game winning streak. While running back Ezekiel Elliott scored twice in the final 2 minutes of a wild fourth quarter to bring Dallas back a pair of one-point deficits, Jones was equally awed by the ease with which Prescott handled the pressure against a team desperate to right itself.Prescott went 9 for 10 over the final two Dallas drives, standing in the face of the Pittsburgh pass rush like a player whos been around for more than just a couple of months.He was outstanding, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. Its contagious throughout our team. Guys believed in him. Everyone believed in each other.Other takeaways as Dallas matched the longest single-season winning streak in team history while the Steelers (4-5) dropped their fourth straight.ZESTY ZEKEElliott, the other Dallas rookie, found the going tough until late in the fourth quarter. Then, the NFLs leading rusher with the relentlessly churning legs buried Pittsburgh. His first touchdown, a 14-yard dash down the right sideline, put the Cowboys up 29-24. His second, a 32-yard sprint right up the middle , came on a simple play when he was just trying get the ball a little closer for kicker Dan Bailey. Instead, Elliott found nothing but a large swath of green in front of him.It parted like the Red Sea, Elliott said. All I had to do was run.FOR YOU, DADDallas wide receiver Dez Bryant caught six passes for 114 yards and a score , his most productive game of the season. Bryants breakout came just a day after the death of his father, MacArthur Hatton. Bryant chose to play and paid tribute by pointing to the sky after his pretty 50-yard touchdown grab.I dont know how you being to understand how someone can perform at that level dealing with such an emotional thing in their life, Garrett said. He was locked in. He was very passionate throughout the ball game.ACCOUNTING ISSUES?Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed for 408 yards and three scores to move into 10th on the NFLs all-time list for career touchdown passes (292), slipping by Hall of Famers Johnny Unitas and Warren Moon. Yet it wasnt enough to lift Pittsburgh to its first victory in more than a month.Roethlisberger said the Steelers were undisciplined and not accountable. When asked what he meant by accountable, Roethlisberger didnt exactly provide specifics on where his team was lacking.Just a feel, he said.MARINO 2.0Roethlisberger channeled Hall of Famer Dan Marino late in the fourth quarter, faking a spike and instead lobbing a 15-yard scoring pass to Brown that put Pittsburgh in front with 42 seconds left. It was reminiscent of Marinos famous play against the New York Jets in 1994 . However, the exception is the Dolphins won and the Steelers didnt.(Offensive coordinator) Todd (Haley) was in my head yelling `Dont waste a down, Roethlisberger said. But I knew what we were doing, so Im glad it worked.UP NEXTCowboys: Will go for their ninth straight victory on Sunday against the Ravens. Dallas has never won nine consecutive games in one season in the franchises 57-year history. There have been a lot of great teams and championship teams that have come through in the last 57 years, Garrett said. Thats certainly something to comment on. Its been a good streak for us.Steelers: On the surface, a trip to 0-10 Cleveland would be the perfect elixir. Yet, Pittsburgh has struggled on the road this season.

WACO, Texas -- Baylor fans filled the arena with the obligatory chants over Over-rated! in the closing minutes as the ninth-ranked Bears were closing out a convincing victory over No. 7 Xavier.Maybe they should have been chanting Under-rated! for their own team.Manu Lecomte scored 24 points, Johnathan Motley had 17 points with eight rebounds and the Bears took over in the second half for a 76-61 victory Saturday. Less than a month into the season, they already have three wins over Top 10 teams for the first time.We just go out and play hard every day, Motley said, when asked if the Bears were still ranked too low. Whatever rankings say, thats what they say. I guarantee you every day, every game, were going to come out with the same intensity. Play together as a family. Were all in, and it results in Ws.Baylor (8-0) started the season unranked and not even getting any votes. They moved to No. 20 in the second poll of the regular season, after a win over then-No. 4 Oregon, and shot up to No. 9 with a first-place vote in the last poll after winning the Battle 4 Atlantis with wins over then-No. 24 Michigan State and then-No. 10 Louisville.Now they have another impressive victory by beating Xavier (7-1), which led by as many as nine points before halftime. The Bears came from behind in the second half like they did in all three games last week in the Bahamas.Give Baylor a lot of credit. Theyre awfully good. Its nothing we didnt know coming in, Xavier coach Chris Mack said. Theyve been a second-half team seems like all year so far, and today was no different.Xavier led 51-50 when Edmond Sumner, who had 19 points, hit a 3-pointer with 11:15 to play. The Musketeers then went almost 9 minutes before making another field goal.Lecomte, the former Miami transfer, put Baylor ahead to stay with two free throws. By time he made a jumper with 3:36 left, it capped a 21-2 run to put the Bears up 71-53.Trevon Bluiett, who led the Musketeers with 23 points and fouled out, made a 3-pointer with 2:33 for their first basket since their last leead. Kurt Rambis Jersey. BIG PICTUREXavier: The Musketeers had won 21 consecutive non-conference games since a double-overtime loss at Auburn two years ago. They were 3-0 against Top 10 opponents last season, but the Big Easts best team in field goal percentage couldnt hold down Baylor.Baylor: The Bears, who now have 10 days between games because of final exams, have passed their big tests on the court so far. Lecomte has been a spark with returners Motley, Al Freeman and Ishmael Wainright in the starting lineup, along with 7-footer Jo Lual-Acuil. Their next big game is the Dec. 30 Big 12 opener at Oklahoma.A BAYLOR FIRSTIt was Baylors first victory in a matchup of Top 10 teams. The Bears were 0-6 in the previous such games, all of them in Big 12 play -- including five during the 2011-12 season. ... Baylor has won 39 consecutive non-conference home games over the last four years.HE SAID ITWe went a bunch of times into the post. We lost the ball.

Big Blue Nation is going to love this edition of Kentucky basketball. Dikembe Mutombo Nuggets Jersey .The Wildcats are deep, quick, can score in transition, defend well and will get better and better. John Calipari lost so much talent from last season: Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray, Skal Labissiere, Alex Poythress. Calipari is a recruiting machine and he has reloaded.You couldnt tell how his team would respond to playing in Madison Square Garden against a ranked team Tuesday night. Kentucky passed its test against Michigan State, 69-48.Remember, this squad has been together for about a month. It is young, but oh so talented. They play well as a team and Michigan States size advantage was a small factor.This Wildcats club can run, baby, run! They have tremendous athletic ability and go from the defensive end to the offensive end so fast. This has the making of a very special team.Going into the game Tuesday, there were questions about Malik Monks shooting ability. My friends, what I saw on Tuesday was star ability as Monk hit trifecta after trifecta. He had rhythm, touch and range.I was really impressed by the improvement shown by Isaiah Briscoe. He has become a much better shooter from the field and is a different player on the foul line. His hard work in the gym over the summer has paid off. I also love his toughness.Bam Adebayo is tough on the boards. DeAaron Fox runs the offense and is a superb passer. Then there are veterans like Derek Willis and Isaac Humphries who help out up front.Kentucky has the quickness and length to be a very good defensive team. Holding the Spartans below 50 points proved that. A young team has bought into Caliparis defensive philosophy.Michigan State is 0-2, but both losses came against ranked teams (Arizona and Kentucky). Miles Bridges had a rough shooting night, but the high-riser will be a special talent. Cassius Winston has to learn to stay out of foul trouble. The Spartans are undersized with Ben Carter and Gavin Schilling hurt, and it is possible that neither will return this season.Tom Izzo is a teacher and his kids will take these two losses and learn from them. Michigan State is doing a lot of flying during the first month of the season and that will also be a challenge.Kentucky has so much talent across the board and Calipari loves his team. They have all of the ingredients to make it to the Final Four. Custom Denver Nuggets Jerseys . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons.

CHASKA, Minn. -- William McGirt took his wife and infant son to Arnold Palmers office at Bay Hill, wanting nothing more than a photo.Palmer, as usual, gave him so much more.Any worries McGirt had about imposing on the King were put to rest as quickly as it took Palmer to reach over and take his son, Mac, out of his arms for the photo.We take the picture and I figure hell hand him back and wait for us to get out of his office, McGirt said Monday. No. We take the picture and he puts Mac on his desk and sits there playing with him. Mac knocked everything off his desk and he was like, `Its OK. He was having fun with him. He was the best at making you feel welcome. He made you feel like youve known him for 30 years.This was the very essence of Palmer, who died Sunday and left a gaping hole in the world of golf.This was the personal touch.Three months before his death, Palmer eased into the chair in his Pennsylvania office and started in on a lifes work that never seemed to end. On the desk next to him was a stack of photos, tournament flags and other memorabilia that fans from across the country had sent him, asking for an autograph.Some days he would sign for 10 minutes, other days an hour, depending on his energy level.But he signed.The walls outside his office are covered with personal letters from presidents dating to Dwight D. Eisenhower and other leaders. Palmer knew them all, and the letters showed how much they cherished their relationship with him.Palmer, however, treated the unknown fans with as much consideration.He made them feel important.Phil Mickelson learned that lesson over the years. The most important Palmer imparted: Never walk past anybody.He always made eye contact. He always acknowledged they were there, Mickelson said. We all try, but we never live up to his standard. He made the difficult look easy.His signature is among the most famous in sport. Everyone can read it, each letter just as legible as the A and the P. One year in his office at Bay Hill, Palmer reached for a black pen and a blank sheet of paper to show how he learned to write. He even remembered the name of his teacher in the first grade, Rita Taylor, and the Palmer Method of Writing that was scrawled on the blackboard.Thats how kids in the 1930s learned to write. The method wasnt named after Palmer. He just perfected it.Moving his large hand in a circular motion until there was a large, black dot on the paper, the King showed that it was about using the arm, not the wrist, as he moved down the line to write his name. NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap. No telling how often that signature has been written. As Rocco Mediate said, Palmer autographs dont sell for much because there are probably 8 billion of them.And nothing is more personal than a letter.Gavin Hall, who plays for the Texas Longhorns, was 14 when a letter arrived in the mail from the Bay Hill Invitational in 2009. It was from Palmer, whom he had never met and never did. Hall had played in the prestigious Monroe Invitational in upstate New York that year. Palmers grandson, Sam Saunders, also was in the field. Maybe thats why he wrote.I was pleased to hear of your recent accomplishments on the golf course, the letter begins. It goes on to encourage Hall to stay devoted to the game without dismissing his education.Hall was in a minor state of shock.There was no way it was Arnold Palmer. How in the heck would he know what I did? Hall said Monday. It was amazing. To this day, its the best letter I ever received. Can you believe the amount of people he has reached? How many lives? I never met him, and he still wrote that.Hall, who qualified for the 2013 U.S. Open as an 18-year-old, was one of the younger recipients. But he wasnt alone.Each week, Palmer wrote letters to every player who won on tours large and small. Russell Knox was one of them. He won his first Web.com Tour event five years ago outside San Francisco, and a few weeks later received a letter from the King.I called my dad and said: `Youre not going to believe this. Arnold Palmer wrote me a letter, Knox said. He didnt believe me.Palmer kept a tight schedule three years ago. He took time for a visitor before two meetings and lunch with supermodel Kate Upton.He paused before signing a letter to David Frost, who had won on the Champions Tour, and said, Hes playing pretty good. The next letter was to Kevin Streelman, who had won at Innisbrook the week before. Palmer watched the back nine on television and liked what he saw.On the way out the door, an assistant told him that Japanese photographers wanted to take his picture. They were outside his door and when Palmer saw them, he rattled off his best Japanese greeting. His voice was animated. His smile put everyone at ease. The words probably didnt come out the right way. It didnt matter.They all laughed together and Palmer wrapped his arms around one of them and gave her a big hug.Just like they were old friends.

TSN. Ray Allen Jersey .cas MMA staff, including John Pollock - TSN Radio 1050 (@iamjohnpollock), James Lynch - TSN.ca (@lynchonsports), and Jordan Cieciwa - TSN Radio 1290 (@FitCityJordan), take a look at some of the hottest issues in the world of mixed martial arts. 1) With Renan Barao injured, are you satisfied with addition of Roy Nelson for UFC 161 in Winnipeg? Lynch: Yes and honestly I dont understand the critics who are complaining about the fight being scrapped altogether. Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson is a very entertaining main event, especially when you consider both fighters are coming off losses and should be extremely motivated to earn a victory. On top of that, Eddie Wineland rightfully earned his title shot against Barao, having him fight someone like Urijah Faber (who was rumored to fight him) is completely unfair. “Big Country” certainly brings some intrigue to the card being quite the character and has exciting style of fighting. His opponent Stipe Miocic is coming off a loss to Stefan Struve while Nelson has won three straight. This is a considerable mismatch in my opinion and fans should be treated to one of Nelsons patented knockouts. Pollock: When the interim bantamweight title was taken off the card I noted that this might be the first time a UFC event has lost their main event and it will have no impact on the business the card will produce. We can all look at the talents of Barao and Wineland but it was a hard sell of a main event with the real main event on the show being Henderson vs. Evans because of their name value and that is the fight selling the card in my opinion. Nelsons addition to the card is a good main card addition, but Nelson has no proven track record of drawing because he has never been put in that role to sell a pay-per-view. The fight with Miocic seems like a high risk, low reward scenario for Nelson as its not a top ten heavyweight that brings him that much closer to a heavyweight title fight and a loss really sets him back. The UFC 161 card isnt blowing me away by way of anticipation but that is not to say it couldnt be an entertaining card. JC: Are you kidding me? Nelson makes a great card better and he is saving UFC 161.  The two main events here in Winnipeg have "the potential" for greatness.  However, all fighters involved have a tendency to not show up.  Nelson always brings a fight.  The only thing about this fight is the potential for Nelson to hinder his climb back to the top.  Miocic isnt a top opponent, but he is dangerous.  If he scores a win it would be devastating to Nelson, and an absolutely huge boost for Miocic.  Yes, this fight announcement made my day. Welcome to Winnipeg UFC, I am excited again for this card.  2) Do Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar deserve their respective spots in the UFC Hall Of Fame? Lynch: Griffin absolutely does and Bonnar doesnt. The Ultimate Fighter winner Griffin racked up a decent 9-5 record in the UFC, with his most impressive win being an upset over Mauricio Shogun Rua at UFC 76. At UFC 86 he earned the UFC light heavyweight title in a closely contested contest against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and for that alone he deserves a spot in the hall. Bonnar meanwhile finished his career with an 8-7 UFC record and never came close to earning light heavyweight gold. What stands out for me though is Bonnar was busted twice for using PEDs, once in his second fight with Griffin at UFC 62, then again in his last fight against Anderson Silva at UFC 153. I understand the Griffin-Bonnar fight at the inaugural Ultimate Fighter finale was a game changer for the sport, which has brought in a whole new audience, but if Bonnar gets in, it sets a bad precedence that there is a steroid user in the Hall of Fame. Pollock: This is all contingent on what you view the UFC Hall of Fame to be and if you are viewing it in the traditional sense of a formal Hall of Fame with various criteria including voting, well thats simply not what the UFC Hall of Fame is. Its an acknowledgement of those that the company have deemed worthy of recognition and helped the company grow. The two will always be tied to their April 2005 TUF Finale bout, which has grown in legend with each passing year to the extremes of people feeling the UFC wouldnt have lasted without that fight. Standing on their own, I dont even feel there is an argument to be made regarding Bonnar as a Hall of Fame candidate, this guy was a marginal fighter at best. Bonnar  had entertaining fights but the credibility of a Hall of Fame is just as much created on who is not in the Hall as much as who is voted in. Griffin gets the nod in a “UFC” Hall of Fame but I feel he would face much more scrutiny in a real MMA Hall of Fame with voting and debate preceding induction. JC: Griffin vs. Bonnar started this whole UFC thing with an all-time top fight, Roots of Fight Clothing even made a clothing line dedicated to the event.  With that said, Bonnar has since tested positive twice for PEDs, and has lost a lot of fights he shouldnt have.  Thats not Hall of Fame material, but it is enough to be remembered by fans as the other guy in the Griffin fight.  Griffin on the other hand has had an excellent career.  His only major embarrassment was being TKOd by Anderson Silva while he was back peddling.  I think by his book alone, Griffin should get a place in the Hall of Fame.  Forrest should be in, Bonnar needs to redeem himself, but at the moment doesnt get the nod. 3) With his win at UFC 160, is Canadian T.J. Grant a legitimate threat to champion Benson Henderson? Lynch: Yes and I wouldnt be surprised if the Canadian was able to finish the current lightweight champion. At UFC 160, I was shocked that Grant dominated Gray Maynard the way he did and even though I did pick him to win, I thought it would be in the form a close decision. Since his drop to lightweight, the Nova Scotia native is currently undefeated (riding a five-fight win streak) and has finished his last three of his last five opponents. With his much improved standup and being a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, the 29-year old is comfortable anywhere the fight goes. Whats also interesting about a matchup with “Smooth” is this will be the first time the current 155-pound torchbearer will be the smaller fighter when he steps inside the cage. Grant has a two-inch height and reach advantage, and that could pose problems for the 29-year old champion. Either way its finally nice to see a new contender established in the lightweight division. Pollock: I dont think anyone looks at a Benson Henderson fight as a slam dunk guarantee and Grants stoppage of Maynard will be played over and over on the countdown special to remind people that Grant is a threat. Both of these fighters represent a key aspect that is presently working as neither is a top practitioner of one discipline, but rather a jack of all trades that can transition when necessary. Grants last three victories over Evan Dunham, Matt Wiman and Maynard represent some very tough lightweights that are battle tested and Grant passed each with flying colours. In a nutshell he is a very legitimate threat and I can very excited to see this fight later in the year. JC: A legitimate shot, absolutely.  All fighters at the UFC level have a shot. Grant proved he has the skill with a dominant victory over Maynard to call for a legitimate shot at the title.  Henderson is very human, and his game has holes.  He finds a way to win when he needs to.  With Grant, he can put the kind of pressure on that may not let Henderson recover in a tight spot.  Next year this time, we will be talking about Grants shot at the title.

CHASKA, Minn. Julian Weigl Jersey . --?Mark James played in the Ryder Cup seven times and captained the European side at Brookline in 1999. Here, the honorary life member of the European Tour gives his views on the 41st edition of the contest in Minnesota.Lee Westwood had a really bad time on Friday morning and there is a fair bit of pressure for him now to play well when he next gets a chance.He didnt just lose in the foursomes with Thomas Pieters, he looked unimpressive and out of sorts. I didnt see any part of his game that looked good.As a pairing it didnt come off and they failed to win a single hole, losing 5 and 4. But Lee was big enough to tell European captain Darren Clarke that his form meant he didnt warrant a place in the team in the afternoon, and that he wanted to hit some more on his own the next morning.He put some work in with his coach, Pete Cowen, on the range on Friday afternoon and he will have been stripping things back to basics with the hope of playing on Saturday afternoon.Lees performance hasnt taken away any of the question marks there were over him before this edition of the competition got underway, thats for certain; the doubts there were about him being in a position to play at his best here.Hes 43 years old and you do very well to play Ryder Cup at that age. If this is to be his last one, he would want so badly to at least go out winning a singles match and finishing with a win. That will be massively important for him.So he will be telling himself its just one session -- anyone can have a bad day and be good the next. Hes experienced enough to shut out all the pressure and the stuff that goes on outside the Ryder Cup and concentrate on playing well next time out.Its fair to say Lee would have had to be really disappointed to drop out of two sessions, but it is a measure of what a team player he is that he volunteered to do that for the good of the European cause.For me, he doesnt need to prove anything as a Ryder Cup player after all that he has done. Hes played in seven winning teams and this is his 10th appearance in the competition.At least he will have taken something from the positive mood there would have been in the European team room at the end of the day.They will have been thinking they did really well to get back to 5-3. After the 4-0 whitewash in the morning, coming back like that was incredible.A bad afternoon would have meant the match was completely over for them. But Darren [Clarke] gave them a good talking-to at lunchtime and they came out with renewed vigour, and played some pretty good golf.There is everything to play for now but Europe really have to keep the hammer down in the foursomes on Saturday.They will have to be at their best against a very good American side because if the U.S. are given an inch, they will take a couple of miles.Mark James was talking to Leo Spall Roman Burki Jersey .ca.

The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1.CHICAGO -- The Cardinals Yadier Molina is regaining his comfort zone after returning from the disabled list -- and showed it by inflicting some pain on the Cubs. Molina hit a two-run homer, Joe Kelly threw six scoreless innings and St. Louis beat Chicago 4-0 Saturday. Molina also had a double in his second game since coming off the disabled list Thursday from a sprained right knee. "Today, I feel comfortable," Molina said. "Everything went well." Molina homered off Travis Wood for a 4-0 lead in the sixth after Matt Holliday was hit by a pitch. Molinas ninth homer was his first hit in eight at-bats since he came off the disabled list. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny also liked how Molina made a strong throw after handling a tough bunt and how he guided Kelly. "Were happy hes here," Matheny said. Kelly (4-3) hasnt lost since joining the Cardinals rotation as the fifth starter on July 6. He allowed four hits, struck out six and walked three. "Hes stepped up and really taken advantage of it," Matheny said "You can tell he cant wait to get the ball. When he goes out there with that kind of confidence it kind of transfers over to everybody else. And hes getting better. "Were still real impressed with how hes using his secondary pitches in tough counts. Hes staying out of the middle of the plate. Hes making good pitches when he has to. Hes working ahead, all the things we hope our starters will do." Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was pulled shortly after making a mental mistake that let the Cardinals score in the fifth. The Cardinals led 1-0 and had the bases loaded with one out when Castro caught a popup by Matt Carpenter in short left field. Castro put his head down and hesitated to throow home. Manuel Akanji Dortmund Jersey. Jon Jay scored from third base and the other runners advanced. "I think good teams constantly find ways to put pressure on the defence, and Jon is such a heads-up player," Matheny said. "He took two hard steps and saw he had an opportunity." Cubs manager Dale Sveum said something to Castro when he reached the dugout. Donnie Murphy switched from third base to shortstop to replace Castro in the sixth, and Cody Ransom came off the bench to play third. Sveum said there is no explanation for Castros mistake. He was unsure if Castro would play Sunday. "I know the outs and everything," Castro said. "I just put my head down, like a mental mistake. I dont want to say any excuse for that. "Its my mistake and thats why I pay for that. Thats why I got taken out of the game. I feel really, really bad that happened." Wood (7-10) retired the first nine St. Louis batters. He gave up four runs and four hits in 5 1-3 innings. Carpenter hit a leadoff double in the fourth and scored on a double by Carlos Beltran for a 1-0 lead. A trio of St. Louis relievers combined to allow one hit. Both teams finished with five hits. The Cubs have lost 14 of their last 19 games. They have been shut out in five of their last seven at Wrigley Field. "Youve got to give credit to Kelly. Thats pretty overpowering stuff," Sveum said. NOTES: The Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis before the game. He is 2-4 with a 5.35 ERA in seven starts. LHP Sam Freeman was optioned to Memphis after pitching four scoreless innings Friday against the Cubs. ...

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.

Fisher did not provide details about the nature of Quinns medical issue.He is feeling much better, Fisher said. He kept saying to me over and over, `Coach, I just want to get back and get my body right and get on the practice field as fast as I can.The sixth-year pro from North Carolina and 2011 first-round draft pick has two sacks this season along with two forced fumbles, giving him an NFL-best 19 since 2013.He has been with the Rams for his entire NFL career, emerging as a key starter and the top pass-rusher on their vaunted defensive line. He played in the Rams 9-6 road victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.Quinn, 26, underwent back surgery last December and spent much of the offseason recuperating. He has started six of the Rams nine games this season while overcoming a series of minor injuries.Quinn was diagnosed with a tumor below his brain while in high school. The tumor has caused headaches when it isnt properly drained, but Quinn has said the tumor is checked regularly.Along with his standout play, Quinn has made headlines this season for his decision to raise a fist during the national anthem before every game.

Welcome back to the friendly, air-conditioned confines boys. It was hot work out there, hey? Hot enough for extra drinks breaks anyway. The breeze came in to the WACA Ground in the evening session, which offered some kind of respite from the heat and the sun. That should have helped you cool down enough to process a few things.But before you do, I want you to remember how you feel right now. The heavy legs, the dry mouths and the dull headaches from your sweaty baggy green hat-bands. Remember too the sinking feeling you got when you took a final glance at the WACAs old scoreboard before reaching shade, showing South Africas vast lead. A word of warning: it will be a fair bit bigger by the time you get another bat.Inconvenient memories like this can help you in future, when you have the opportunity to make a Test match your own. They can help you to keep your focus clear and your ruthlessness intact as they should have been yesterday, in the hour or so after Dale Steyn dropped out of the match, the tour and possibly even his whole career with a serious shoulder injury. That moment should have been one to steel yourselves, and think coldly about the physical imperative of Test cricket.South Africa had lost a bowler, and a great one at that. Chat to your teams long-time physio Alex Kountouris, now Cricket Australias head of sports science. He will be able to tell you of the pitifully small percentage of Test matches won by teams that lose a frontline bowler so early on. Another medico, doctor John Orchard, is perhaps the worlds biggest advocate for injury substitutes in Tests. His forward thinking cant help this week though.One of Orchards prime case studies comes from the last time South Africa toured Australia, in 2012. He has outlined how a side injury to James Pattinson - remember him? - in Adelaide led to an excessive workload for Peter Siddle in a match South Africa fought back to draw. In Siddles absence the visitors won in Perth, and the extra overs duly bowled by Mitchell Starc flowed into the need to rest him from the Boxing Day Test against Sri Lanka. It all adds up, you see.I dont need to tell you much about the physical drain, because your legs are still heavy even as you cradle some ice water, Gatorade or perhaps a consolation beer. Adam Voges has a tender hamstring. The sight of the fast bowlers icing feet, legs and shoulders - Starc is re-dressing the open wound in his left leg as we speak - should also remind you of the fact that you didnt give them much rest at all after their exertions on day one. Less than 24 hours in fact.Thats a betrayal (a strong word, but aa true one) of the unwritten compact between batsmen and bowlers. Justin Tucker Youth Jersey. They work so hard in the field on days like these, and should have the right to expect a decent total to defend after a reasonable amount of time at rest in the teams viewing area. Pattinson (hes not had much luck, Jimmy) once suffered serious injury in a Lords Test match after being asked to bowl again too soon after the first innings, due to a batting collapse. Slim first innings exacerbate the risk of injury to the very men who can win you the Test match. A confronting thought.Equally, the first Test of a series can influence how the rest play out, particularly back-to-back matches. Starc and Siddle in particular are coming off limited preparation for this series. They are playing in Perth not because they are fully fit, but because they are the best available for a vital contest. Selectors, coaches and medical staff took a calculated gamble that they would not be placed in the position they are now in, with the second Test in Hobart starting as soon as Saturday. South Africa are exacting a physical toll that will help them later.This brings us to the main thing I want you to take out of today. Once your thoughts of frustration subside, you really need to take in the lessons offered up by JP Duminy and Dean Elgar. Much like you on day two, they had a massive opportunity to take control of the Test. Unlike you on day two, they took it.Not through anything flashy or overly ambitious, but simply through relentless and disciplined Test-match batting - the batting you needed to provide on day two of this game. The bowlers bowled well, there were a few plays and misses, but they forged on regardless, frustrating and tiring the fielding side. Thats the way its done. As the day went on, South Africas drinks waiters brought on chairs for them to sit in. Youd have to agree they earned that.Now there may still be hope of escaping Perth without defeat. The pitch is still good, the cracks are far from the most dangerous ones seen in these parts - just ask your fielding coach Greg Blewett - and, as weve said, South Africa are a bowler down. But even if there isnt, you should be using days like these as motivation to bat like Elgar and Duminy in the future. The rewards will be Test match victories, happier bowlers, and fewer days of exhaustion.Anyway, Ive said enough. Go cool off, binge on a season of Sons of Anarchy, and well catch-up tomorrow. Look forward to seeing some resilience. ' ' '

You might fluke a few games and we probably did a couple last year with some of the talent on our list, but you cant constantly rock up every week and think that you can fluke wins.Cameron said ruckman Rory Lobb (knee) and midfielder Dylan Shiel (soreness) were the only fitness concerns for Saturdays away game against Gold Coast.

"Were still real impressed with how hes using his secondary pitches in tough counts. Hes staying out of the middle of the plate. Hes making good pitches when he has to. Hes working ahead, all the things we hope our starters will do." Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was pulled shortly after making a mental mistake that let the Cardinals score in the fifth. The Cardinals led 1-0 and had the bases loaded with one out when Castro caught a popup by Matt Carpenter in short left field. Castro put his head down and hesitated to throow home. Manuel Akanji Dortmund Jersey. Jon Jay scored from third base and the other runners advanced. "I think good teams constantly find ways to put pressure on the defence, and Jon is such a heads-up player," Matheny said. "He took two hard steps and saw he had an opportunity." Cubs manager Dale Sveum said something to Castro when he reached the dugout. Donnie Murphy switched from third base to shortstop to replace Castro in the sixth, and Cody Ransom came off the bench to play third. Sveum said there is no explanation for Castros mistake. He was unsure if Castro would play Sunday. "I know the outs and everything," Castro said. "I just put my head down, like a mental mistake. I dont want to say any excuse for that. "Its my mistake and thats why I pay for that. Thats why I got taken out of the game. I feel really, really bad that happened." Wood (7-10) retired the first nine St. Louis batters. He gave up four runs and four hits in 5 1-3 innings. Carpenter hit a leadoff double in the fourth and scored on a double by Carlos Beltran for a 1-0 lead. A trio of St. Louis relievers combined to allow one hit. Both teams finished with five hits. The Cubs have lost 14 of their last 19 games. They have been shut out in five of their last seven at Wrigley Field. "Youve got to give credit to Kelly. Thats pretty overpowering stuff," Sveum said. NOTES: The Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis before the game. He is 2-4 with a 5.35 ERA in seven starts. LHP Sam Freeman was optioned to Memphis after pitching four scoreless innings Friday against the Cubs. ...

Henderson walked around the cage shrugging his shoulders at the booing Orange County crowd while Freire sat on a stool and received medical attention on his leg, which apparently was hurt while kicking Henderson.I guess Ill take a W any way I can get it, Henderson said.Although Henderson (24-6) got handed this win, the former UFC lightweight champion rebounded from a loss in his disappointing Bellator debut earlier this year.Immediately afterward, the promotion announced Henderson will face Michael Chandler for the 155-pound title Nov. 19.After losing to welterweight champion Andrey Koreshkov in his first Bellator appearance in April, Henderson is hoping to recharge his career by ending his three-fight stint at 170 pounds and moving back down to a familiar weight.Henderson won the UFC lightweight title in February 2012 by beating Frankie Edgar, and he defended it with narrow decisions over Edgar, Nate Diaz and Gilbert Melendez. After losing the belt to Anthony Pettis in August 2013, he scuffled through a 4-3 stretch of UFC competition before leaving for Bellator early this year.Henderson is Bellators biggest free-agent signing to date as the promotion pursues parity with the industry-leading UFC, but he was officially joined Friday night by Rory MacDonald, a possible future opponent. MacDonald, the former UFC welterweight title contender, announced his decision to sign with Bellator as a free agent during the show, walking into Honda Center in front of a huge Canadian flag.Bellator gave me an offer that nobody in the world can match, MacDonald said. They believe in me, and Im ready to put on a show for you guys. ... Im taking over. Im the king of this division.Henderson joined Bellator six months ago with similar expectations of dominance, but he struggled in his first bout against the larger Koreshkov. He subsequently decided to cut down, and he will be rewarded with a bout in San Jose, California, against Chandler, one of Bellators top talents.Freire, who shares the nickname Pitbull with his older brother, Patricky, has been a Bellator staple since leaving his native Brazil to sign with the promotion in 2010. The former Bellator featherweight champion has lost two of three following a seven-fight winning streak.Southern California-based fighters A.J.
