DETROIT -- Gustav Nyquist made the most of his return from the minors. Niklas Kronwall was credited with the tie-breaking goal in the third period, Nyquist had 2 goals and the Detroit Red Wings broke a seven-game game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night. Nyquist was recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League earlier in the day. He wasnt there because he wasnt good enough to make the team out of training camp, but due to salary cap reasons. He was one of Detroits best forwards in training camp and during the exhibition season after playing a key role for the Red Wings on the third line during last seasons playoffs. Only a shoulder separation to defenceman Danny Dekeyser in Tuesday nights 2-0 loss to Nashville, which put him on the long-term injured list, gave Detroit the cap space to bring Nyquist back. "Well see, well see what happens here," Nyquist said after the game. "Obviously this is where I want to play and I want to be a part of this team and hopefully well be able to work that out." He scored his first goal just 17 seconds into the game by putting in a loose puck from the bottom of the right circle. "It was a lucky bounce there, but it for sure was nice to get a quick one so that felt great," Nyquist said. Henrik Zetterberg assisted on both Nyquists tallies and Darren Helm added a goal for Detroit. Jonas Gustavsson made 24 saves. "We needed to win and it was a good win for us. I thought our team played well. We had lots of opportunities," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "We made it closer than we needed to, for sure. I thought we really carried territorial play. Our specialty teams were outstanding." Andrej Sekera scored twice and Brett Bellemore got his first NHL goal for Carolina. Justin Peters stopped 43 shots. "Theyre a good hockey team and they played well. . They owned the puck," Sekera said. Kronwall was credited with the 5-on-3 power-play goal that broke a 2-2 tie 8:29 into the third period when Hurricanes captain Eric Staal accidentally kicked the puck into his own net. Nyquist scored on a breakaway with 4:02 left. Sekera got his second goal with a short-handed effort in the last minute. Detroit killed off a 1:36 two-man disadvantage late in the second period and early in the third. "We were right there in the third period. We had a 5-on-3 that we had the chance to go up," Sekera said. "We didnt score and they scored on theirs." Sekera tied the game at 2 with 7:09 left in the middle period with his first goal. He made a move past the Red Wings Todd Bertuzzi and then beat Gustavsson with a wrist shot from the slot off the rush. It was Sekeras third goal. Bellemore put Carolina on the board 5:49 into the middle period, making it 2-1 by completing a give-and-go with right wing Radek Dvorak and whipping a one-timer from the bottom of the right circle past Gustavsson. Helm gave Detroit a 2-0 lead 2:37 into the second period. He also beat Peters with a shot from the bottom of the right circle for his third goal.

TORONTO -- Tyler Bozak is anxious to get back into the Toronto Maple Leafs lineup after missing almost a month with a hamstring injury. But that doesnt mean hes making any promises about playing Saturday against the Washington Capitals. Bozak was one of just three players to skate Friday and said he was fine despite leaving the ice earlier than Mark Fraser and Frazer McLaren. "Its all good, just a little bit of a hard skate," Bozak said Friday. "Its needed, and hopefully Ill feel good tomorrow morning and go from there." Bozak has missed 11 straight games dating back to the Leafs game at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 25. He has been nearing a return all week, but theres no guarantee hell play against Washington. He said hes not going to rush back if the hamstring doesnt feel right. "You want to get back out there but at the same time, its a long season," Bozak said. "Theres a ton of hockey still to be played, so you dont want to push yourself and tweak something or get hurt again or even just not be able to play to your ability and hold the team back a little bit." The plan was for Bozak to get treatment Friday night and then again Saturday morning. "Hopefully it all works well," the centre said. Roommate, friend and regular linemate Phil Kessel has been asking Bozak "quite a bit" when hell be back. In Bozaks absence, Kessel has played on a line centred by Nazem Kadri, James van Riemsdyk and, most recently, Peter Holland. Still, Bozak said Kessel doesnt want him to come back too soon. And theres a need for some self-restraint, too, given that hamstring injuries can linger. "The hamstring you use quite a bit in this sport," Bozak said. "Whatever you do, its probably something thats going to nag for a little bit so I want to get most of it healed up before I try to do too much strenuous activity." NOTES -- The Leafs did dry-land workouts Friday, the morning after losing 4-2 to the Nashville Predators. Coach Randy Carlyle wondered after the game if he and the coaching staff pushed players too hard in practices or morning skates and said its their job to monitor fatigue. Carlyle did not address the media Friday. ... Toronto signed forward Connor Brown to a three-year, entry-level contract. The 2012 sixth-round pick leads the OHL in points with 46 while playing for the Erie Otters. <a href="http://www.authenticseahawksshoponline.com/seahawks-doug-baldwin-super-bowl-jersey/">Doug Baldwin Super Bowl Jersey Authentic</a>.ca in a 30 Teams In 30 Days tour of the NHL in preparation for the upcoming season. <a href="http://www.authenticseahawksshoponline.com/seahawks-doug-baldwin-super-bowl-jersey/">Doug Baldwin Super Bowl Jersey White</a>.

MONTECOPIOLO, Italy -- A final push from Diego Ulissi saw the Italian win a tough eighth stage as the Giro dItalia took to the mountains on Saturday, while Cadel Evans ended Michael Matthews grip on the overall lead. Ulissi made his move inside the final 300 metres, bursting out of the peloton to edge Robert Kiserlovski for a second stage win in the race. Wilco Kelderman was third on the 179-kilometre (111-mile) leg from Foligno to Montecopiolo, which had two category one climbs, including the final ascent to the finish. "It was a difficult race today, it was really too hard for my characteristics, but of course I am really happy," Ulissi said. Evans finished fifth to take the lead from fellow Australian Matthews, who had worn the pink jersey for six days. Evans has a 57-second advantage over Rigoberto Uran, with Rafal Majka third. "We had hopes of what we could do," Evans said. "Its been a really difficult Giro for all sorts of reasons. We are in a good position at the moment. It was a hard stage with all the contenders there ... We still have huge mountains to go and the gaps there will be even more than today." This years Giro honours the 10th anniversary of Marco Pantanis death, and the eighth stage was one of three dedicated to him. There were many posters of Pantani along the route and a huge cutout of the Italian cyclist on the Carpegna climb, where he used to train. Pantani won the Giro and Tour de France in 1998. He was found dead in a hotel room on Valentines Day in 2004, and a coroner ruled he died from cocaine poisoning. Julian Arredondo led the race for most of the day as part of an early break of 10 riders who managed to build a lead of more than eight minutes. That advantage diminished on the approach to the first climb. With an average gradient of 9.9 per cent, and 14 per cent at its steepest, the Carpegna was the first serious challenge of this years Giro. Arredondo jumped on the ascent with 36.6 kilometres (22.7 miles) remaining and had a 36-second advantage over Stefano Pirazzi at the summit, with a greatly reduced peloton crossing 1 minute, 57 seconds later. Pierre Rolland attacked off the group on the descent but Arredondo still had an advantage of 1:10 over him at the start of the penultimate climb, with the peloton trailing by 2:40. Arredondo faded two kilometres from the finish, and Rolland continued on solo before being swept up by the peloton with 350 metres to go. Daniel Moreno jumped but he was passed by Kiserlovksi, who looked to take victory until Ulissis attack from nowhere. Sundays ninth stage is a 172km leg from Lugo to Sestola, which ends in a category 2 climb to the finish. <a href="http://www.chinajerseys.cc/">jerseys from china</a>. - The Atlanta Falcons have signed former offensive lineman Gabe Carimi. <a href="http://www.chinajerseys.cc/Soccer-club-wt-2_Bayern-munchen-jersey-av-2/">Cheap Bayern Munchen Jerseys</a>.

Nick Bonino and Matt Beleskey also scored in regulation and Frederik Andersen stopped 27 shots for the Ducks, who will face Dallas in the opening round of the post-season. Anze Kopitar had two goals, including the tying one with 3:12 left in the third period, and Dustin Brown also scored for Los Angeles.PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The road to the Masters got off to a bumpy start Sunday for Tiger Woods when he withdrew from the Honda Classic with what he said was a lower back injury. Woods was 5-over par for the final round -- 12 shots behind Rory McIlroy at the time -- when he shook hands with Luke Guthrie on the 13th green and told him he was done. It was the farthest point at PGA National, and the tournament sent a van to collect Woods and his family. Police kept the media from the parking lot. "He just came over and said, I cant go anymore. It was a pleasure playing with you," said Luke Guthrie, paired with Woods the last two days. "I just said, Take it easy. Feel better. Pretty uneventful." But the speculation over his future figures to be a big buzz leading to the Masters next month. Woods said through spokesman Glenn Greenspan it was a lower back problem that had started Sunday morning as he was warming up. He was to defend his title next week in the Cadillac Championship. "Too early to tell," Woods said in a statement about playing next week at Doral. "Ill get treatment every day to try to calm it down. Just dont know yet. Wait until Thursday and see how it feels." Woods already has played a limited schedule this year -- 10 complete rounds. He was to play twice more before the Masters on April 10-13. Woods said the spasms were similar to what he felt last August at The Barclays, where he dropped to his knees after hitting one shot. Woods finished that tournament in a tie for second, one shot behind Adam Scott. It was the second time in two years that Woods has walked off the course in the middle of the final round. He quit after 11 holes at Doral when he was well out of contention -- and then won Bay Hill two weeks later for his first PGA Tour title since his return from the chaos in his personal life. Guthrie said he could tell early on in the round that something was not right with Woods. "He made a couple of uncharacteristic shots -- the first on 3 kind of was the first one," Guthrie said. "I didnt know if he wasnt feeling the greatest, and it kind of seemed like he might have been protecting -- came up and out of it. I didnt think much of it until maybe 11. I noticed he was bending down gingerly. "He didnt mention it to me," Guthrie said. "Obviously, he wasnt playing the ggreatest.dddddddddddd I wasnt playing the greatest. He was battling out there. Its not like he was throwing in the towel. He was still trying." Woods started the final round seven shots out of the lead and was out of the tournament quickly. He muffed a tough chip in the rough on No. 2, and then took double bogey on the easy par-5 third hole with a drive that found the water hazard left of the sixth green. He bogeyed the fourth from behind the green, and then put his tee shot into the water on No. 6 and had to scramble to save bogey. Woods had said earlier this year in Dubai that he spent the majority of his off-season working on his physical strength, at the expense of neglecting his game. He opened the year by missing the 54-hole cut at Torrey Pines (where he is an eight-time winner), and then tying for 41st in the Dubai Desert Classic. The Honda Classic was his first tournament in a month, and he didnt make it to the finish line. "If youre hurting, youre hurting," Guthrie said. "You dont need to risk injuring yourself even more. Hes had his share of problems with injuries. Theres no reason for him to chance it if hes really hurting." This was the fourth time Woods has withdrawn from a tournament since returning from the chaos in his personal life at the end of 2009. He withdrew from The Players Championship in consecutive years, once in the final round because of a bulging disk, and then after nine holes in 2011 with a leg injury. He left in the final round at Doral in 2012 because of tightness in his Achilles tendon. Two years ago at Doral, Woods was driven in a cart to the parking lot, and NBC Sports showed footage of his Mercedes-Benz driving out of the Miami resort toward his home about an hour north in Jupiter. This time, police blocked the media from entering the players parking lot. Woods was seen getting out of a white passenger van with his mother and other members of his group. It was the second time the No. 1 player in the world walked out in the middle of the Honda Classic. A year ago, McIlroy quit after 26 holes because of what he said was a sore wisdom tooth. He later said the frustration of a poor start to the year got the best of him. By withdrawing in the middle of the round, Woods is ineligible to win the Vardon Trophy for lowest scoring average for having an incomplete round. Woods has won the award a record nine times. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseyschinaplay.com/">wholesale jerseys</a>  <a href="http://www.cheapjerseyschina.cc/">cheap jerseys</a>  ' ' '

Tomas Plekanec will play his 600th NHL game - all with the Canadiens - and celebrating with him is Josh Gorges who will play his 400th game as a Canadien. Plekanec first wore the Habs jersey on New Years Eve 2003, when he was called up from the Hamilton Bulldogs to play his first NHL game against the Dallas Stars. It wasnt until the 2005-06 season that the Habs third round draft pick from 2001 became a permanent fixture with the club. Despite many trade rumours that surrounded him throughout the years, Plekanec has been able to stay put. "The Habs management has changed a few times over the years and Im happy that they all have allowed me to stay with the Canadiens all this time," said Plekanec. He attributes his longevity with the Canadiens to staying healthy, having good teammates and linemates, as well enjoying the support of his parents. It was a difficult way to end the off-season for Plekanec who lost his father at the end of August. Being an only child, he remained in the Czech Republic a little longer than usual to be with his mother, which is why he missed the Habs annual golf tournament. Some may argue that Plekanec is one of the most underrated players in the NHL, but the humble Plekanec doesnt think too much into that. "I will let you guys decide that," he added.dddddddddddd Unlike Plekanec, Gorges time with the Habs didnt get off to the easiest start. "When I first got here I didnt think I would play 50 games with the Canadiens," Gorges said on Saturday morning. In February of 2007 the Habs acquired Gorges and a first-round pick, which they later used to select Max Pacioretty, after trading Craig Rivet to the San Jose Sharks. That trade is considered to be one of the best moves Bob Gainey made during his time as general manager. At first Gorges had a difficult time establishing himself, playing only seven games that season with the Habs. "If you have the drive and motivation to accomplish something, that can propel you further ahead," Gorges said on overcoming the adversity when he first came to Montreal. The Kelowna, B.C. native has been happy with the way he has been able to prove his worth to the organization, but knows theres still a lot of work left to do. "You can never be satisfied, there is always another level that could be reached," he said. Gorges would not comment on which team he thinks benefitted the most from the 2007 trade, but said he is proud to play for the Canadiens. "I always tell people when you play hockey at this level, you have to experience what it is like to play for the Canadiens, there is no better place to be and no better place to play," Gorges said with a proud smile on his face. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseyschinaplay.com/">wholesale jerseys</a>  <a href="http://www.cheapjerseyschina.cc/">cheap jerseys</a>  ' ' '

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Takuma Sato won the pole at St. Petersburg for Sundays season-opening IndyCar Series race, where Tony Kanaan will make his debut in his new Target/Chip Ganassi Racing ride starting alongside him on the front row. Sato circled the street course in 1 minute, 0.01 seconds Saturday in the rain-delayed qualifying session to put his A.J. Foyt Racing entry out front. It was a stellar debut for Honda and its new twin turbo engine. "Its a fantastic day. I cant really ask any more for the start of the season," Sato said. "A.J. said Very well done, and he was very happy, and making him happy is a very difficult thing. So Im pleased." Sato also praised Honda Performance Development, which struggled mightily in this race a year ago. He said having the engine ready early in the off-season allowed his team to do needed testing in advance of the opener. "Last year, my first test was the end of February with the team," he said. "Its a very short time to prepare. But this year, really the winter testing started from December, so effectively more than two months ahead of what we were last year." Tony Kanaan qualified second, 0.2951 seconds behind the Japanese driver. Kanaan, the defending Indianapolis 500 winner, replaced Dario Franchitti during the off-season following Franchittis forced retirement from injuries suffered in an October crash. His first qualifying session with his new team led to Kanaans best starting spot at St. Pete since 2010. Its the first time he advanced to the final Fast Six round of qualifying at this course in three years. It could bode well for Kanaan, who improved seven spots to finish fourth a year ago when he drove for KVSH Racing. "Its just qualifying. Youve still got to make it to turn one (Sunday)," Kanaan shrugged. "I think it has been like three years since I have been in the top six. It feels really good, I cant thank the Target Chip Ganassi Racing guys enough. A lot of people made a lot of comments over the years because we struggled so much in qualifying in street and road courses and nobody was counting on that. I like to be the element of surprise." Ryan Hunter-Reay was third and followed by Will Power, who had won the pole the last four years. Defending IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon was fifth and Marco Andretti rounded out the Fast Six. Juan Pablo Montoya failed to advance out of his group in his first qualifying session in IndyCar. He returned to open wheel this year to drive for Roger Penske after seven seasons in NASCAR with Chip Ganassi. Hell start 18th in the 22-car field. "The biggest problem for the (car) was the last corner, for some reason. I just couldnt come off that corner and get the car to turn," Montoya said. "Sato was in front of me and I would lose everything to him right there. It is what it is. I havent driven in wet conditions in a long time and we never had an opportunity to do it in testing. "I dont think were that far off. Im still getting acclimated. My team is still getting acclimated to me. If that process was complete we would be a lot better. We are definitely making progress." The qualifying session was delayed more than three hours because a heavy rainstorm drenched the course and forced the race promoter to clear the grandstands and ask fans to seek shelter in various locations around the temporary street circuit. Fans huddled inside the parking garage that serves as the garage for many teams, and at least 12 drivers passed the time by posing for a "selfie" photo similar to the star-studded one Ellen DeGeneres took at the Oscars. When the qualifying session did begin, the first group was slowed by several red flags. It infuriated Sebestien Bourdais, who replaced Kanaan at KVSH Racing and is hoping for a strong debut in his hometown race. But Bourdais waited late into the session to go out onto the course, and the red flags limited him to just one qualifying lap. Hell start 13th. "This is a joke," he grumbled. "If we are going to qualify, we at least have to have a fair shot, and we didnt. It wasnt much of a qualifying session. Because of the track conditions we waited to go out to make sure that we had room in case something happened, so everyone else got in a lap before the first red flag. "When we went back out I got one lap at speed before the second red flag. We were too conservative and I feel bad for the crew." <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseys2015.us.com/">cheap jerseys</a>.

Lowry joined TSN 1050 on Monday to discuss his personal growth, what was going through his mind on his final second drive and whether his future plans include staying in Toronto. “That last play will be my summertime grind,” Lowry said of his final shot which was blocked by Paul Pierce in the lane as time expired. SOUTHPORT, England -- Mo Martin knew she hit her 3-wood exactly how she wanted on the 18th hole at Royal Birkdale. With the ball slightly below her feet, just under 240 yards away and a strong wind at her back, she let it rip and watched the ball track toward the flag. Martin thought it was short. Then she thought it might be too long. Moments later, she realized just how good it was. "I could hear it hit the pin from the fairway," Martin said. "That was a pretty fun feeling." The ball rolled into the centre of the flagstick and settled 6 feet away for an eagle, and when no one could catch her, the 31-year-old American became a major champion Sunday at the Ricoh Womens British Open. "I think I still need to be pinched," Martin said after closing with an even-par 72 for a one-shot victory over Shanshan Feng of China and Suzann Pettersen of Norway. It was Martins first eagle of the year -- one of the shortest hitters in the game, she doesnt get many opportunities. She had not won on the LPGA Tour in 63 previous tries. And on a wind-swept Sunday when no one broke par, she was never closer than two shots of the leaders the entire final round. The best shot of her life changed everything. "An absolutely perfect 3-wood," she said. "When it was in the air, I said, Sit. And then I said, Stop. And then when it was going toward the hole, I said, OK, I dont have anything more to say to that ball. I actually heard it hit the pin. Its definitely one to remember." She turned and did a little jig in the fairway. An hour later, it turned out to be the winning shot when Feng and Inbee Park of South Korea couldnt stay under par. Both needed one birdie over the two par-5 closing holes at Royal Birkdale. Feng missed birdie putts of 15 and 10 feet and shot 75. Park missed a 12-foot birdie putt on the 17th, and then put her tee shot in the right rough on the easy 18th hole and wound up with a bogey for a 77. Martin, who finished at 1-under 287, was on the practice range preparing for a playoff that never happened when she hugged her caddie, Kyle Morrison. "Is this real life?" she said. It seemed like a fairy tale for Martin. Growing up with modest means, her father built a cage in theeir driveway for her to practice hitting balls.ddddddddddddShe walked on at UCLA. She needed financial help to keep her dream alive, including the six years it took just to reach the LPGA Tour. Martin said she would keep trying if she woke up happy, felt she was still contributing something to womens golf and could pay her bills. And here she is -- Mighty Mo, never happier. When she returned from the range, players gathered around her cart to celebrate with a champagne shower. "Its still soaking in, along with champagne in my jacket," Martin said. "This is just unbelievable. Its literally a dream come true." It was a disappointment for Park, trying to become the seventh woman to capture four of the LPGAs major. She had a two-shot lead at the turn until the high grass grabbed the bottom of her wedge on the 10th, sending her to a double bogey. She fell out of the lead by going long on the 14th for bogey, and never caught up. "Made a lot of mistakes that I really didnt need to make," Park said. "Obviously the last hole drive was really disappointing." Pettersen finished birdie-birdie that allowed her to share second place, but not enough to atone for a pair of double bogeys earlier in the round. Martin earned $474,575 -- she had $599,760 in career money when she arrived in England. Americans now have won the first three majors of the LPGA Tour season for the first time since 1999, with Martin following Lexi Thompson at the Kraft Nabisco Championship and Michelle Wie at the U.S. Womens Open. A more likely candidate to extend that streak at Royal Birkdale would have been Stacy Lewis, the defending champion, who also started only three shots behind. Lewis didnt make a birdie until the 18th hole and closed with a 78. Wie missed the cut, and Thompson finished 15 shots out of the lead. Martin had a three-shot lead going into the weekend, building her strategy of keeping the ball in the fairway. But she had a 77 in the third round, and that figured to be the end of her chances. After two bogeys in five holes to start the final round, she was solid the rest of the way. And then she was simply spectacular at the end. "Safe to say its the best week of my life," she said. <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseyschinaplay.com/">wholesale jerseys</a>  <a href="http://www.cheapjerseyschina.cc/">cheap jerseys</a>  ' ' '

Cheap Nike New England Patriots Jerseys . Purich, from Sherwood Park, Alta., and Tran, from Regina, rose two spots for their best international result. Its their first season skating together. "Our long program wasnt as good as we would have liked," said Purich. "But we fought to the end and didnt give up. We know we can be better." American teams finished second through fourth overall. Margaret Purdy of Strathroy, Ont., and Michael Marinaro of Sarnia, Ont., were seventh. Takahito Mura led Japan to a 1-2 finish in the mens singles while all three Canadians produced clean free skates. Jeremy Ten of Vancouver was ninth, Nam Nguyen of Burnaby, B.C., was 10th and Elladj Balde of Pierrefonds, Que., was 11th. Competition ends Saturday with the womens free skate. Cheap Nike Seattle Seahawks Jerseys . -- The basic role that Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito shared as offensive linemen for the Miami Dolphins was protecting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Ruolin Chen and Hao Wang of China won gold with 360.66 points and Paola Espinosa and Alejandra Orozco of Mexico were second at 327. NEW YORK -- It took all afternoon before Curtis Granderson finally generated some goodwill at Citi Field. The slumping Mets newcomer hit a sacrifice fly in the 14th inning and New York outlasted the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Sunday to prevent a three-game sweep. "It felt really good," Granderson said. "Any way to help the team win a big game." David Wright had four hits and New York took advantage of three early errors by Atlanta, which had won seven of eight. Granderson went 0 for 6 with an error and was booed all afternoon. But he turned those jeers to cheers at the end of a long day. "Cant help but not hear them. I havent given them anything to cheer about," he said. Kirk Nieuwenhuis drew a leadoff walk from Gus Schlosser (0-1) and advanced on Ruben Tejadas sacrifice bunt. Eric Young Jr. was intentionally walked to bring up Granderson, hitless in his last 16 at-bats and stuck in a 4-for-44 slide thats dropped his average to .127. "Id rather have chose to pitch to myself as well," Granderson said, well aware of his early struggles. "Ive seen it before on the outside looking in, but Ive never had to deal with it myself to start a season." The runners moved up on a wild pitch and Granderson lifted the next delivery into medium left field. Nieuwenhuis slid home ahead of Justin Uptons throw, and the Mets mobbed Granderson near first base. "Terrible pitch. Elevated. Thats what hes trying to do right there and I let him do it," Schlosser said. New York manager Terry Collins moved Granderson from cleanup to the No. 2 spot in the lineup, hoping to get him started. Granderson, who even tried an unsuccessful drag bunt Sunday, signed a $60 million, four-year contract in December after an injury-plagued season across town with the Yankees. "Im really happy for him," Collins said. "Something he can build on, move forward, and get it going." Jose Valverde (1-0) worked a scoreless inning, hours after he was demoted from his closer role in favour of Kyle Farnsworth. As late-afternoon shadows crept toward the mound, neither team could muster much offence in extra innings. Daisuke Matsuzaka struck out five in three hhitless innings for the Mets. Jerseys Cheap NFL. Called up from the minors last week, Matsuzaka was pitching on consecutive days for the first time in the majors. He made his second career relief appearance in his season debut Saturday night. "I told him that I could go. When it went into extra innings, I knew Id have to pitch some," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "This is my role for the time being, so Ill do my best." Scott Rice kept it tied in the seventh by getting New York nemesis Freddie Freeman to ground into an inning-ending double play with runners at the corners. Mets starter Zack Wheeler tossed six innings against his hometown team before he was pulled for a pinch hitter in a game that lasted 4 hours, 37 minutes. "You play that long you want to win, obviously. So yeah, thats rough, but its part of it," Upton said. "Something had to give and it gave their way. Nothing you can do about it." Braves rookie David Hale wriggled out of bases-loaded jams in the second and sixth -- both after errors by second baseman Dan Uggla. Hale was making his second straight start against the Mets and pitching for the first time in 10 days because his scheduled outing Tuesday in Philadelphia was rained out. Wheeler helped himself with an early RBI grounder and took a 2-0 lead into the fifth. Then he issued a leadoff walk and the Braves surged ahead with consecutive one-out doubles by Jason Heyward, B.J. Upton and Freeman. New York tied it on an RBI grounder by Lucas Duda in the sixth, a double-play ball that could have ended the inning if Uggla hadnt botched it. Young scored on Wrights first-inning groundout after Justin Upton muffed his slicing fly for a two-base error. NOTES: Schlosser pitched 3 2-3 innings and singled in his first major league at-bat, moments before the 14th-inning stretch. The souvenir was taken out of play. ...

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. cheapnfljerseyschinastore . -- Rookie centre Stefen Wisniewski is trying to learn the Oakland Raiders offence without a playbook. And if thats not bizarre enough, the second-round draft pick from Penn State spent a couple of hours Thursday working with teammates at an indoor pool in suburban Atlanta. Such is life during the NFL lockout. "Its crazy. I havent even been out (to Oakland) because the lockout ended the day I was drafted," Wisniewski said. "So its a blessing that (quarterback) Jason (Campbell) has been here to go over the blocking schemes and stuff like that. Getting on the field has been great." Defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who lives in the metropolitan area, organized the mini-camp. Wisniewski would likely be working at the Raiders team headquarters in Alameda, Calif. -- alongside his uncle, assistant offensive line coach Steve Wisniewski. Now Stefan Wisniewski isnt even allowed to talk to him. "I havent tried to contact him and he hasnt tried to contact me," Stefen Wisniewski said. "Its weird, but this is a strange time in the NFL." Oakland linebacker Quentin Groves cant imagine what its like to be a rookie under these circumstances. No official mini-camp. No official offseason training activities. "It kind of takes away from the rookie experience with the vets yelling at you. Hey, rook. You got all that money. Now its time to show up," Groves said. "Now youre talking about these rookies just getting thrown into the fire. Mini-camp, OTAs -- those things give you a little bit of a chance to get adjusted to the speed of the game, but if you take that away, all you have is training camp. "And what if we dont have training camp? Theyll just get thrown out there on the field. Thatll be tough." About 25 players participated in the pool session, which was designed as a cross-training recovery workout after two days on the field and in the weight room. "Its just getting them moving, getting their heart rate up and then we finish off with the (heavy resistance rubber) band work," said Competitive Edge Sports founder Chip Smith, whos hosting the camp with Seymour. "Some of these guys cant swim. Thats OK. We put flotation devices on them, but hopefully we teach them a life skill." Wisniewski can swim, so thats no concern. Getting an understanding of the playbook is a different matter. Thats where Campbell comes in. After playing last year under offensive co-ordinator-turned-head coach Hue Jackson, Campbell knows whats expected of Wisniewski on the field. "I tried to go off some of the stuff Hue does in practice and some of the plays Ive run before that I know hes real high on," Campbell said. "Its just a way to introduce it to the young guys for the terminology but also to reintroduce to myself and the other veterans." Linebacker Kamerion Wimbley learned enough from the pool session that he plans to follow the off-season training patterns of Groves and Campbell and make water activities a weekly routine. "Its a total body workout," Wimbley said. "You work every muscle you can possibly think of. Your heart is pounding hard, and its a very strenuous cardiovascular workout. Theres everything tested in this workout." http://www.cheapnfljerseyschinastore.us.com/ . A goal machine for the MLS team when healthy, the former striker is back in his native Netherlands these days. www.cheapnfljerseyschinastore.us.com .

DETROIT -- Boston Bruins forward Jarome Iginla is sitting out against the Detroit Red Wings because of a lower-body injury. cheap nfl jerseys . Iginla sat out Wednesday night after playing in the Bruins first 75 games this season. He leads the team with 30 goals and is second with 61 points. Boston has already clinched the Atlantic Division title. The Red Wings kept forward Daniel Alfredsson out of the lineup because of a lower-body injury. He has 17 goals and 45 points in 63 games during his first season with Detroit. Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk skated with teammates Wednesday morning, but missed his 16th straight game because of an injured left knee. Datsyuk wouldnt say if he expected to play Friday at home against Buffalo. cheap jerseys .Com Tour. The former Canadian Amateur champion, who made his rookie year as a professional a memorable one, has had a long wait to get back on the course and after last season, hes anxious to play. wholesale nfl jerseys . The Nets continued their winning ways Tuesday by sweeping a back-to-back set for the first time this season, beating the Orlando Magic 101-90 a night after routing the crosstown rival New York Knicks. CHICAGO -- The pitch was just a tick up, and Starlin Castro was ready. When Edwin Jackson was limited to five innings, the bullpen took over. Pedro Alvarezs drive fell short on the warning track. These are fun days for the improving Chicago Cubs. Castro hit a three-run homer and Jackson finally got the better of Charlie Morton, leading the Cubs to a 6-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. "This is the nicest Ive felt about this team since Ive been here," said Anthony Rizzo, who was acquired in a January 2012 trade with San Diego. Chris Coghlan added a solo shot as the Cubs opened a 10-game homestand with their fourth win in five games. Last-place Chicago also improved to 18-13 since May 17 for the best record in the NL in that stretch. "Everything in this game is contagious, whether its positive, negative, hitting, defence, pitching," Coghlan said. "I think were having more team at-bats." Jackson (5-7) was removed after 86 pitches due to cramps in his calves, but it was enough to get his first win in four matchups this year against Morton (4-8). The right-handers have faced off more than any other pair of starting pitchers this season in the majors. Jackson allowed three runs on Jordy Mercers fifth homer and five hits. He struck out eight and walked two in just his second win in his last six starts. Alvarez had a chance to tie the game when he came to the plate with two on and two out in the sixth. He took a frustrated hop between first and second as Ryan Sweeney ran down his long fly ball in the biggest part of the ballpark. Andrew McCutchen struck out with two on in the seventh, wasting another Pittsburgh threat. "Pitchings been pretty great all year. The offence is coming around, and the defence is coming around as well," Jackson said. "So were definitely showing a glimpse of what were able to do. Its just going out and doing it on a consistent basis." Pittsburgh rookie Gregory Polanco opened the game with a single to centre, extending his hitting streak to 10 games. He is the first NL player to begin his career with such a streak since Juan Pierres 16-game run for Colorado in 2000. cheap jerseys from china. The Pirates have lost four of five since a four-game winning streak. Morton retired six in a row before Jacksons one-out single in the third started a string of five consecutive batters reaching safely. Rizzo lined a two-run double into the right-field corner before Castro drove an 0-2 curveball over the wall in left for his 11th homer, moving past his total from all of last year. Morton jerked his head down in disgust when Castro connected, and then turned around to see where the ball was going. Castros third homer of the season against Morton gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead. "I could have gotten the ball down a little bit more," Morton said. "I dont think it was a bad pitch. It was a bad pitch to him in that situation." The six runs in six innings were a season high for Morton, who had won each of his last three starts and was 4-1 with a 2.40 ERA in his previous five outings. Mercer went deep after Jackson walked the first two batters in the fifth, but that was it for the Pirates. Four Cubs relievers combined for three innings of two-hit ball before Hector Rondon worked the ninth for his eighth save in 10 chances. Jason Grilli pitched the eighth for the Pirates in his first outing since manager Clint Hurdle removed the right-hander from the closer role. Grilli has blown four save opportunities this season after converting 33 of 35 chances a year ago. "Better rhythm, a better execution of pitches," Hurdle said when asked about Grillis inning. NOTES: Hurdle said before the game that Mark Melancon will close for now, and he also could use Tony Watson in save opportunities. ... Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said he is pleased with Manny Ramirezs impact on the organization so far, and the former major league star could join Triple-A Iowa next week. When Ramirez reports to Iowa, he will be a player-coach for Chicagos top farm club. ... Epstein also said he doesnt forsee a scenario where prospect Kris Bryant joins the major league club this year. ... Pirates RHP Vance Worley (0-0, 0.00 ERA) and Cubs LHP Travis Wood (7-5, 4.48 ERA) face off on Saturday. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '

LONDON -- Arsene Wenger signed a new three-year deal to manage Arsenal until 2017, renewing his commitment to the club on Friday after ending a nine-year trophy drought. http://www.nflcheapjerseysfromchina.net/nike-nfl-jerseys-china/ . The new deal was announced by Arsenal to the London Stock Exchange and will take Wenger into his 21st year at the club, where he has been in charge since 1996. "I want to stay and to continue to develop the team and the club. We are entering a very exciting period," Wenger said on the Arsenal website. "We have a strong squad, financial stability and huge support around the world. We are all determined to bring more success to this club." The 64-year-old Frenchman won three Premier League titles and four FA Cups in the first half of his Arsenal tenure, but failed to capture a trophy since 2005 until winning this seasons FA Cup. Wenger has guided the London side into the Champions League for 17 consecutive seasons and is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League following the retirement of Alex Ferguson at Manchester United last year. "The club has always shown faith in me and Im very grateful for that," Wenger said. "We have gone through fantastic periods and also periods where we have had to stick together. Every time when that togetherness was tested I got the right response. I think I have shown some loyalty as well towards this club and hopefully we can make some more history. I am sure we can." Wenger is Arsenals most successful manager in its history, helping change the face of English football by bringing in new training methods and dietary plans that were regarded as revolutionary in his first years in the country after joining from Japanese club Grampus Eight. Previously, he was at French side Monaco. On the pitch, his Arsenal team broke Uniteds stranglehold on the Premier League around the turn of the century and then went through a season unbeaten in the 2003-04 campaign, playing an eye-catching brand of football with Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira to the fore to the fore. Fans patience has been tested in recent years during the trophy drought, however, with dissenters frustrated at Wengers refusal to spend money on big-name players and his unshakeable belief in squad members who didnt appear to be at the required standard. Further criticism was targeted at Wenger for selling star players Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Samir Nasri to rivals like Barcelona, United and Manchester City. The club-record signing of Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil for 50 million euros ($66 million) last summer suggested a chance in stance in the transfer market from Wenger. "What I can promise is that we work very hard on a market that is very, very congested with many people who have a lot of money," Wenger said. "But we have a big advantage, players want to join us and if we find the right quality Im sure we can strengthen the team." And winning the FA Cup could be the catalyst for a new successful era under the Frenchman, widely regarded as the Premier Leagues only manager who cant be fired. "Sustained excellence is the hardest thing to achieve in sport and the fact Arsenal has competed at the top of the game in England and Europe throughout the time Arsene has been manager, is the ultimate testimony to his consistency of performance, talent and ambition," Arsenals majority owner Stan Kroenke said. "We are delighted with the FA Cup success which has added to his already outstanding record. Under his guidance we look forward to adding more trophies in future seasons." www.nflcheapjerseysfromchina.net . NHL hockey is returning to the Manitoba capital.

LOUIS - Lance Lynn bounced back from his worst start of the season with 6 2-3 scoreless innings and the St.ATZENBRUGG, Austria -- Mikael Lundberg exploited perfect playing conditions for early starters in the second round of the Lyoness Open on Friday in a bid for his first European Tour title in six years. In sunny and almost windless conditions, the Swede shot four consecutive birdies on the front nine on his way to a 68 and went 9 under for a one-shot lead over Englands Lee Slattery and two over Paraguays Farbrizio Zanotti (68). Slattery carded a 6-under 66, which started with three birdies on the first four holes and was rounded off by an eagle on the par-5 16th. "I hit some really, really good shots today," said Lundberg, who won the Russian Open in 2008. "Starting early means the course was slightly softer. On the back nine it started to dry out and that it made it harder." Lundberg said he had been "working really hard the last couple of months so I am glad it pays off." Englands Adam Gee, who shared the overnight lead with Lundberg, hit a 73 and dropped to 4 under for the tournament, while Sihwan Kim of South Korea improved to 6 under with a 68. Defending championn Joost Luiten and Rhys Davies of Wales followed at 5 under.dddddddddddd Slattery missed the cut in his last four events but has regained his confidence at the event where he finished ninth last year. "We moved house, got married and had a baby so its been a really hectic six to nine months," Slattery said. "Its nice to find a little bit of form." Luiten, who finished the opening day on level par, put himself back in contention with a 5-under 67. Starting on the back nine where he dropped three strokes on Thursday, the Dutchman avoided bogeys this time and hit five birdies in total. "It was a bit easier as there was no wind today. My swing felt a bit better," Luiten said. "You have to be on the fairway, otherwise youre in trouble. Five under is a good score, I am definitely back in there." Home favourite and 2012 champion Bernd Wiesberger improved to 3 under with a 70 but Miguel Angel Jimenez, a two-time winner this season, dropped to 1-over par. The Spaniard carded a disappointing 75 after suffering three double bogeys on Nos. 7, 10 and 11. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
