Cant believe the editors here at ESPN.com want a Chase for the Sprint Cup outlook. Are they setting me up to fail?Who could predict that the last driver to make it out of the 2015 quarterfinal round -- Kyle Busch -- would win the title? He wouldnt have advanced if his teammate Matt Kenseth had won at Kansas Speedway (and therefore earned an automatic bid into the next round) instead of getting roughed up by Joey Logano.We all know how that ended up.So take these outlooks with a grain of salt. In these three-race rounds where race winners and best in points advance while eliminating four drivers, anything can happen culminating with the best-finisher-at-Homestead among the four finalists being crowned the champion.From fist bumps to fists thrown, the Chase is, by the nature of the rules and for better or for worse, unpredictable.Kyle BuschTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 ToyotaCrew chief: Adam Stevens2016 regular season points finish: 6th2016 wins: 4Previous Chase appearances: 8Championships: 2015Why he will win: He knows he can win a championship by running well enough to get by and capitalizing at the end. Hes the No. 1 seed because he has four wins and his three runner-up finishes are two more than Brad Keselowski has, not because he has been the best car all year. That being said, he has led more laps than any other driver this season.Why he wont: He has little momentum. He was sixth in the regular-season standings and has led more than five laps only once in the last six races and in only four of the last 15 races. And being the No.1 seed isnt good for Busch -- he has finished 10th (2008) and 12th (2011) in the years where he was the No. 1 seed.Brad Keselowski????????Team: Team Penske No. 2 FordCrew chief: Paul Wolfe2016 regular season points finish: 2nd2016 wins: 4Previous Chase appearances: 4Championships: 2012Why he will win: Keselowskis 12 top-5 finishes rank him just behind regular-season champ Kevin Harvick and that type of consistency can get him to Homestead, where anything can happen.Why he wont: The 2012 champion doesnt have the speed of some of his competitors. He will have to make something happen to get the finishes he needs, and at some point be forced to overdrive the car.Denny HamlinTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 11 ToyotaCrew chief: Mike Wheeler2016 regular season points finish: 4th2016 wins: 3Previous Chase appearances: 9Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Hamlin knows how to rise to the occasion. He bookended the regular season with emotional victories -- a Daytona 500 win and then a win at his home track at Richmond. The inconsistency this year can be blamed on that Daytona 500 win and little incentive to race well each week.Why he wont: Because there are pit-road timing lines on pit road, and Hamlin has had a lead foot this season with more pit-road speeding penalties than trophies. The idea that the Daytona 500 win allowed this team to experiment and cruise through the rest of the year could be a smokescreen of bigger issues. His 29 career victories are more than any other active driver without a championship.Kevin HarvickTeam: Stewart-Haas Racing No. 4 ChevroletCrew chief: Rodney Childers2016 regular season points finish: 1st2016 wins: 2ndPrevious Chase appearances: 9Championships: 2014Why he will win: He has finished in the top 10 in 21 of 26 races this year, and top-10 finishes gets a driver at least into the semifinal round. He has owned Phoenix -- the last race of that semifinal round -- in recent years. His five top-5s in past six races shows hes ready for the Chase.Why he wont: His pit crew will crack under the pressure he has put on them. And they will be under pressure because there will be races where the Toyotas will just flat out be better.Carl EdwardsTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 ToyotaCrew chief: Dave Rogers2016 regular season points finish: 7th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 9Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Its his turn. Actually, its their turn. Both Edwards and crew chief Rogers have proved themselves as championship-caliber talents. They have all the tools they need to win one.Why he wont: After leading laps in six of the first nine races, Edwards has led laps in only six of the last 17 races. And maybe a driver who loses the championship on a tiebreaker one year and then fails to advance to the final round because of rain at Phoenix in another is destined to never win a title.Martin Truex Jr.Team: Furniture Row Racing No. 78 ToyotaCrew chief: Cole Pearn2016 regular season points finish: 8th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 3Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Nobody has led more miles this year than Truex, who has paced the field for 1,664 miles (16.7 percent). He advanced to the final round last year, so he knows how to deal with the pressure.Why he wont: He has already won twice this year and Truex isnt known for stockpiling wins in a season -- this is the first time he has won more than one race in a year. His season has been a year of coulda, shoulda, woulda and those types of seasons only get a driver to the final round, they dont win championshipss.ddddddddddddMatt KensethTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 ToyotaCrew chief: Jason Ratcliff2016 regular season points finish: 13th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 11Championships: 2003Why he will win: Hes still ticked off about losing the chance to win the title last year and the suspension for wrecking Joey Logano. Its time for him to show it.Why he wont: He has not performed as well as his Toyota brethren in 2016. He was 13th in points. Yes, he has had four DNFs this year -- and teammates Busch and Edwards have had five and still outpointed him by more than 80 during the regular season.Jimmie JohnsonTeam: Hendrick Motorsports No. 48 ChevroletCrew chief: Chad Knaus2016 regular season points finish: 9th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 12Championships: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013Why he will win: Hes Jimmie Johnson. He knows how to win championships.Why he wont: Because its 2016, and Johnson has finished in the top 10 in just 10 races. He has never had a season where he has had fewer than 20 top-10s. He also has failed to advance to the final round of the elimination-style Chase implemented in 2014.Joey LoganoTeam: Team Penske No. 22 FordCrew chief: Todd Gordon2016 regular season points finish: 3rd2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: 3Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Just when you think Logano wont be a factor or has seemed to have found a rut, he breaks out with strong performances. He has quietly had a quite consistently strong season, finishing third in regular-season points despite having just one win. The elimination-style Chase is all about consistency and being great in the last four races.Why he wont: As much as Keselowski and Logano have tried, they just have not matched the Toyotas and Harvick lap for lap for lap. That doesnt turn around from race No. 26 to No. 27.Kyle LarsonTeam: Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 ChevroletCrew chief: Chad Johnston2016 regular season points finish: 14th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: No driver is as hot as Larson at the moment, as he has had three consecutive top-three finishes. Drivers talk about the pressure in the Chase, and no driver seems to have more ice in his veins than Larson.Why he wont: When it takes a driver 99 races to earn his first win, it will take more than three years to earn his first championship.Tony StewartTeam: Stewart-Haas Racing No. 14 ChevroletCrew chief: Mike Bugarewicz2016 regular season points finish: 27th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: 8Championships: 2002, 2005, 2011Why he will win: The racing gods work in mysterious ways, and Stewart winning a title in his final Sprint Cup season would be the ultimate storyline, thrilling many and angering some.Why he wont: While he turned a mediocre 2011 season into a title, the brain says no way that can happen again. He has finished outside the top 20 in each of the last four races.Kurt BuschTeam: Stewart-Haas Racing No. 41 ChevroletCrew chief: Tony Gibson2016 regular season points finish: 5th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: 9Championships: 2004Why he will win: Much like Logano, Busch has quietly put together a solid year. He had 17 top-10s in the regular season. Who needs top-5s (he has only six this year) in this style of Chase? Just have that great day at Homestead.Why he wont: He has no momentum. Since the win at Pocono, he has had just two finishes better than 10th in the last 12 races.Chris BuescherTeam: Front Row Motorsports No. 34 FordCrew chief: Bob Osborne2016 regular season points finish: 29th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: LOL.Why he wont: Hes already won. Hes in the Chase. When you dont have enough fingers and toes to calculate your average finish, its one of those great-to-be-here kind of things.Chase ElliottTeam: Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 ChevroletCrew chief: Alan Gustafson2016 regular season points finish: 10th2016 wins: 0Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: He has a championship-caliber team, and Elliott finishes races -- he has just one DNF all year.Why he wont: Rookies dont win championships. Elliott is still learning how to go from very good to great.Austin DillonTeam:?Richard Childress Racing No. 3 ChevroletCrew chief: Richard Slugger Labbe2016 regular season points finish: 11th2016 wins: 0Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: He drives the 3, and sometimes things are hard to explain.Why he wont: RCR hasnt won a race in nearly three years.Jamie McMurrayTeam: Chip Ganassi Racing No. 1 ChevroletCrew chief: Matt McCall2016 regular season points finish: 12th2016 wins: 0Previous Chase appearances: 1Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Because nice guys finish first?Why he wont: NASCAR likes to compare this elimination format to the NCAA mens basketball tournament. The No. 16 seed has yet to beat a No. 1. That, and the fact that McMurray has yet to lead a lap. All year.

PROVIDENCE, R. Sale Air Max Outlet .I. -- Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley knew the Rams were in for a tough one against Providence, which had won the matchup of cross-state rivals six straight times.He didnt see this coming, though.Kyron Cartwright, who had made four 3-pointers all season, hit four of five from beyond the arc in the first half. The Providence point guard finished with 19 points and eight assists to lead the Friars to a 63-60 victory over No. 21 Rhode Island on Saturday.Thats sports, and thats the type of thing that makes coaches go gray and lose their hair, Hurley said after his team lost for the third time in four games. Four 3-pointers in seven games and he made four today -- all in the first half.Rodney Bullock scored 17 points for the Friars (6-2). Cartwright had 15 in the first half and Jalen Lindsey scored nine of his 13 points in the second, five during a 7-0 run that erased a seven-point deficit.My teammates were telling me, `You need to take those shots to open up the defense, Cartwright said. (And) we dont shoot the ball to not make it.Hassan Martin had 14 points and 17 rebounds for Rhode Island (5-3), which lost at unranked Valparaiso and Providence a week after falling to No. 1 Duke. E.C. Matthews scored nine points and went 1 for 8 from 3-point range, airballing a 3 with 2 seconds left with a chance for the Rams to tie it.Games like this might help us down the stretch, Martin said. `So you just tell everybody to keep their head up.The Rams led 47-40 with 12:15 left when Cartwrights arm appeared to catch Christion Thompson in the left eye. Thompson went to the court, flailing his arms in the air looking for a call, but the teams played on until Lindsey hit a 3-pointer to make it a four-point game at 11:00.Lindseys free throws brought the Friars within two points, and Ryan Fazekas scored on a fast-break goaltending call to tie it. From there, there were three more ties and kept the game within one possession until Lindsey hit a fallaway jumper with 43 seconds left to give Providence a 59-55 lead.We beat a tournament team today, Providence coach Ed Cooley said.POLL IMPLICATONSIt will be difficult for Rhode Island to stay in The Associated Press Top 25 after its stumbles.Hurley said he isnt concerned.The goal at the beginning of the season was to win the Atlantic 10 and play in the NCAA Tournament.Thats all still in play.We expect to have a long and great season. Nothings changed for us, he said. We lost two tough road games in a long season.BULLOCKS BOUNCE-BACKBullock scored a career-high 36 points against New Hampshire on Wednesday, but he missed all three shots from the field in the first half and had only three points on six free throws at the break.Cooley told him not to worry about the shooting and to try to make something happen with rebounding or defense.Somebody coming of a great scoring game like he did theres going to be a lot of attention on him, Cooley said. I thought he showed some definite grit in the second half.TIP-INSRhode Island: Martin hit all three of his 3-point attempts in the first half. ... Martin surpassed the 1,000-point milestone against Valparaiso on Tuesday. ... The Rams have lost nine straight to Big East teams.Providence: The Friars lead the all-time series 73-56, including a buzzer-beating victory last year in Kingston. ... They are 1-1 against ranked teams this season, having lost to then-No. 7 Virginia on Nov. 26.UP NEXTRhode Island: Hosts Old Dominion on Tuesday.Providence: Hosts Brown on Tuesday.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25. Black Air Max 90 .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. Authentic Air Max 2017 Sale . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.airmax2018outlet.us/ . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time. Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Louisville coach Jeff Walz got a victory, and he hopes Middle Tennessee gave his fifth-ranked Cardinals a lesson in listening to the scouting report.Mariya Moore scored 27 points, and Louisville Cardinals never trailed beating Middle Tennessee 91-72 Wednesday night despite giving up a career-high 27 points and 11 assists to Blue Raiders guard Ty Petty.I hope our kids believe now that shes really good, Walz said. We tried to tell them that, but I think there were a few times we decided not to guard her just to see is she really good. After 27 points, Im hoping they realized that, and then Im hoping theyll believe us from now on when we tell them someone is good. She was phenomenal.This was Louisvilles first visit to Middle Tennessee since 2008, and the Cardinals had little trouble improving to 5-1 in this series despite letting Petty knock down 10 of her 17 shots.Ciera Johnson opened with a layup for the Cardinals (3-0), and Alex Johnson hit a short jumper to tie it up at 2. That was as close as Middle Tennessee (0-2) from Conference USA would get as Louisville shot 67 percent taking a 22-9 lead after the first quarter.Asia Durr also had 22 points, and Myisha Hines-Allen added 17 for Louisville.Alex Johnson had 13 for the Blue Raiders.We hope we grow up, Middle Tennessee coach Rick Insell said of his young team with Petty the only senior.Petty pulled the Blue Raiders within 26-21 capping a 12-2 run with a 3 with 4:39 left. That woke the Cardinals up, and they answered with 15 straight points and led 41-24 at halftime.The Cardinals pushed their lead to as much as 24 a couple times in the fourth quarter, the first on a 3 by Hines-Allen.BIG PICTURELouisville: The Cardinals continued their run through an easy opening portion of the schedule before playing fourth-ranked Souuth Carolina on Nov. Wholesale Air Max 95. 27th. This was the Cardinals third straight game against a team from Tennessee but not against the states only ranked team, No. 13 Tennessee.Middle Tennessee: This was the highest-ranked team to visit since No. 4 Tennessee in 2013, helping the Blue Raiders bring in some star power for their home opener. They dropped to 5-1 all-time against Louisville, but its part of Insells toughening up his Blue Raiders during nonconference play for March. Arizona State and Georgia Tech also visit in December.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Cardinals did little to hurt themselves with an easy victory. This is their second road game and second against an NCAA Tournament team last March. It gives us more confidence to know were doing so well against great teams, so just lets us know where we are so far, Moore said. All teams get better throughout the season. Its good to know were starting off pretty well.HEIGHT ADVANTAGEWalz played five Cardinals who are 6-foot-2 or taller against a team with only Rebecca Reuter taller than 6 foot. The Cardinals outrebounded Middle Tennessee 44-30 and had a huge edge at the free throw line (21 of 27) compared to the Blue Raiders (3 of 6). The Cardinals even affected shots they werent around as the Blue Raiders missed some wide-open shots.We probably missed seven chip shots, Insell said. Well thats 14 points thats uncontested shots that we usually knock down that because of their size we were looking for them and we didnt follow through. We hit those seven chip shots, you look at the game its a little bit different.UP NEXTLouisville hosts Bowling Green on Saturday afternoon.Middle Tennessee visits Tennessee Tech on Saturday.

CAMBRIDGE, Ontario -- Chella Choi ended up on top of the LPGA Manulife Classic leaderboard Thursday at windy Whistle Bear when Belen Mozo unraveled with a closing triple bogey. Eagles Hoodies Jerseys Sale .Choi shot a 6-under 66, finishing with a birdie on the par-5 ninth. The South Korean player won the Marathon Classic winner last year for her first LPGA Tour title.Mozo was 7 under before running into trouble on the par-4 18th. The Spaniard finished with a 68.Second-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn was four strokes back after a 70 in her bid to win three straight events for the second time this season. The 20-year-old Thai player began her latest streak at the Womens British Open, and rebounded from a knee injury that forced her to withdraw during the Rio Olympics to win the Canadian Pacific Womens Open on Sunday in Alberta.Using a driver in competition for the first time since May, she dropped two strokes on the back nine after birdieing the first three holes and making the turn in 4 under.U.S. Open champion Brittany Lang, second last year at Whistle Bear after winning the inaugural event in 2012 at Grey Silo, was a stroke back at 67 along with South Koreas In Gee Chun, Spains Azahara Munoz and Swedens Dani Holmqvist. Lang holed a lob wedge for eagle on the par-5 third -- her 12th hole.Top-ranked Lydia Ko and Canadian star Brooke Henderson each shot 70.EUROPEAN MASTERSCRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland -- American left-hander Paul Peterson shot a 6-under 64 for a share of the first-round lead in the European Masters.Englands Daniel Brooks and Frenchmen Gregory Havret and Mike Lorenzo-Vera matched Peterson at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club.

Wholesale Eagles Hoodies .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. http://www.cheapeagleshoodiesjerseys.com/ . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead.MINNEAPOLIS -- Vernon Wells drove in three runs, and the New York Yankees pounded rookie Kyle Gibson and the Minnesota Twins 9-5 on Thursday to finish a four-game sweep. Travis Hafner had three hits and scored twice, and Ichiro Suzuki had a two-run triple among his three hits for the Yankees, who scored 29 runs in the series. The Yankees didnt even need their usual super-sized contribution from Robinson Cano, whose streak of six straight multihit games ended without reaching base. He still batted .500 on this seven-game road trip with 11 RBIs. Justin Morneau homered twice for the Twins, one-third of his season total. But Gibson (1-1) gave up 11 hits, a walk, a hit by pitch and eight runs in 5 1-3 innings with two strikeouts in his second start. David Phelps (6-5) surrendered Morneaus first homer and three more runs in the seventh, when he left with one out. RBI singles by Pedro Florimon and Brian Dozier and a sacrifice fly by Joe Mauer helped the Twins catch up in that inning, and Morneau went deep again in the eighth. Phelps gave up eight hits and four runs, but he struck out five without a walk. Zoilo Almonte and Alberto Gonzalez also drove in runs for the Yankees. Phelps had a decent June until his final start of the month, when Baltimore beat him up for a season-most nine runs in 2 1-3 innings last Saturday. Swept by the Orioles in that series, the banged-up Yankees brought a five-game losing streak to Target Field, where their woes were quickly forgotten against their longtime punching bag. Since the start of 2002, including the post-season, the Yankees are 71-23 against Minnesota. Gibsons debut last weekend matched the anticipation of the 2009 first-round draft pick built up in the fan base, a winning performance with six sharp innings and two runs allowed. This time, he was behind 3-0 after just his 17th pitch. The first five batters produced two singles, two doubles and a soaring sacrifice fly by Cano that Oswaldo Arcia caught at the wall in left field. The next batter, Wells, hit a two-run single. The game, though, was essentially decided in the third inning. Gibson hit Hafner with a pitch and let him move up on a wild pitch. Then Wells sneaked a low-arc pop-up in the space between Arcia and the infield, justt right for Hafner to score, Arcia to miss a sliding catch by a few inches and Wells to get a double. Eagles Hoodies Jerseys Outlet. . Luis Cruz followed with an RBI single, his first hit for the Yankees, to stretch the lead to 5-0. Then in the bottom of the inning, the Twins found more bad breaks indicative of a slumping team. After consecutive singles to start for the Twins, Brian Doziers bunt rolled perfectly down the third-base line where no play was possible. But it strayed a bit too far, across the chalk, and Dozier was summoned back to the box. Then he grounded into a double play, thanks to a slick running pickup and same-motion, sidearm toss by the shortstop Cruz to Cano at second base to start the process. Mauer struck out looking next on a pitch the catcher believed was low, in disagreement with home plate umpire Ed Hickox. Mauer was called out on strikes in his next at-bat, too, and he had more words for Hickox on his way back to the dugout. With Josh Willingham out until August, the Twins are even thinner in the middle of their order. So manager Ron Gardenhire stuck Arcia, an emerging candidate for the Rookie of the Year award, in the third spot and moved Mauer back in the No. 2 slot. "Put him in there and let him hack," Gardenhire said. The Twins have lost 10 of their last 13 games. NOTES: Noted Yankees birthdays on July 4: late owner George Steinbrenner and radio announcer John Sterling. ... Arcia popped out to shortstop in the first inning, breaking his bat so badly that the barrel flew toward first base and landed upright in the grass by the cut-out with the jagged edge working like a tent stake. ... The Yankees have moved SS Eduardo Nunez up to Double-A Trenton in his rehab assignment. Manager Joe Girardi said Nunezs return to the team is possible before the All-Star break. ... The Yankees start a 10-game homestand on Friday, beginning with Baltimore. RHP Ivan Nova (2-2, 4.63 ERA), in place of Hiroki Kuroda, will take the mound. RHP Miguel Gonzalez (6-3, 3.77 ERA) will pitch for the Orioles. ... The Twins begin a 10-game road trip on Friday, continuing their grind through the AL East. RHP Kevin Correia (6-5, 4.08 ERA) will start in Toronto, with LHP Mark Buehrle (4-5, 4.81 ERA) taking the mound for the Blue Jays.

Two clubs currently on the plus side of the red line in the MLS Western Conference square off Saturday with playoff positioning as the central focus. Air Max 98 Gundam Hombre . Sporting Kansas City (10-11-4) faces FC Dallas (13-6-5) at Dallas Toyota Stadium.Sporting will be looking to improve its fifth-place standing and avoid slipping behind Vancouver, which currently sits in the seventh spot. Sporting KC is currently just four points ahead of the Whitecaps. FC Dallas, meanwhile, leads the Supporters Shield race and will try to extend its 3-point conference advantage over second-place Colorado.The biggest hurdle for Sporting KC is to end a 10-game winless streak on the road. SKC has not won on the road since opening the regular season with two straight shutout victories. To make matters worse, SKC will be without midfielders Soni Mustivar (red card suspension) and Roger Espinoza (yellow card accumulation), who will sit out the contest. Defender Matt Besler (MCL strain), defender Chance Myers (hamstring strain), midfielder Justin Mapp (calf strain) and goalkeeper Tim Melia (back spasms) are still doubtful due to injury.FC Dallas will also test its depth as it juggles its MLS schedule with action in the Champions League and the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Dallas earned a spot in the Open Cup final with a 2-1 extra-time victory over the LA Galaxy on the road Wednesday. Dallas has not lost at home, including in the MLS playoffs, since last August. The squad boasts a 19-match home unbeaten streak, going 9-0-3 in MLS regular-season action at Toyota Stadium.Mauro Diaz ranks second in MLS with 10 assists, including five that led to game-winning goals. His Dallas teammates include three players with at least five goals and two assists: Maxu Urruti (6 goals, 3 assists), Michael Barrios (6 goals, 2 assists) and Tesho Akindele (5 goals, 3 assists). Goalkeeper Chris Seitz is tied for the league lead with seven shutouts. Defender Zach Loyd is ruled out with a concussion, but he is the lone injury concern for Dallas.Sporting Kansas City holds a narrow 23-21-10 edge in the all-time regular-season series, but is 9-13-4 on the road. The home team in the series has won six straight and is 7-0-2 in the last nine contests, including two matches this season. Air Max 98 Comprar . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. Air Max 98 Baratas . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. http://www.zapatillasrebajas-es.com/venta-de-air-max-97/air-max-97-ultra-17-baratas.html . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. The NFL and players union are talking again about getting a test in place for human growth hormone as early as the upcoming season. An email obtained by The Associated Press from the NFL Players Association indicates that the league and the NFLPA have jointly hired a doctor to conduct a study on NFL players to determine a good threshold for a positive HGH test. The email was sent by the union to players, in part to explain that the study requires them to have blood drawn during their physical when training camp begins. The email said the blood samples will only be used for the study. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the discussions are focused "on a full resolution of any remaining issues, including the role of a population study." The labour agreement that ended the NFL lockout in 2011 requires the league gain union approval before testing players for HGH. The union says it favours testing, but has reservations about the appeals process. The union also has reservvations about the way discipline will be handed out, and wants to collectively bargain that issue. Air Max 97 Mujer Rebajas. Supplemental HGH is a banned substance that is hard to detect and used by athletes for what are believed to be a variety of benefits, whether real or only perceived -- such as increasing speed and improving vision. Among the health problems connected to HGH are diabetes, cardiac dysfunction and arthritis.

Brisbane star Jamie Maclaren has embraced the expectation of re-producing the A-League magic that had thrust him into a Socceroos jumper earlier this year. Nike Air Max Womens White Orange .Maclaren made his national debut in May after an outstanding campaign that netted 18 goals in the regular season for the Roar, second only to Melbourne City striker Bruno Fornarolis 23.But speaking ahead of Fridays season-opener against Melbourne Victory, Maclaren had no hesitation in saying he could repeat his heroics this summer.Ive always believed in myself. Ive got coaches that believe in me, my teammates believe in me and I believe in what were doing, he told reporters on Tuesday.The structures that weve set up is attacking. Thats what I like and what the attackers like.The reason why I scored 20 goals was because of my teammates and all the chances they give me. Its my job to score goals but, if our team plays well, theyll create chances.However, not only is the 23-year-old confident of more individual success, but he predicts his team could progress further than their agonising extra-time exit last season in the semi-finals.In fact, Maclaren said his team could win the whole thing.Why not? Last year, we fell one short. We were 3-0 up in the semi-final and its something that still hurts me and hurts the boys, he said.We started well last year and, if we can start well this year, its all about consistently winning games. If we can do that at home, get our away record better, hopefully we should be right.Maclaren has failed to add to his lone Socceroos appearance against England five months ago, and has been overlooked for upcoming World Cup qualifiers Saudi Arabia and Japan.But he insisted his sole focus was on helping the Roar to a strong start to the season, which was a major factor in his success last year.Ive got to get my form intact. Ive got to start scoring goals during the season, he said.Coming into last year, I didnt have the thought of the Socceroos. This year is going to be the same. If the Socceroos comes, it comes. If it doesnt, Ive got to make sure Im right for the team. Nike Air Max Womens White and Black . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. Nike Air Max Womens White Rose . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. http://www.nikeairmaxwomenswhite.com/ . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. Before they took the field, Pakistan had decided this would be their day of zen.The cricket world has sometimes thought of Pakistan as the team that either thrives or perishes in volatility; they are either inside the flaming helicopter spinning toward the ground, or the hero walking away from the explosion in slow motion. They are a Michael Bay movie or an old-school Rajnikanth flick, no depth, no nuance, no steady substance, just a series of electricifying sessions in succession; some glorious, the rest gory.Perhaps there has never really been this Pakistan, and at least in Tests, they certainly havent looked much like this Pakistan lately. Now they play under a captain who has, over time, moulded them in his own image. When Misbah-ul-Haq slams a 56-ball hundred or crashes spin over the infield perhaps there is a sense of the chaos that roils within him, but no one would say it is chaos that defines him; what defines him is zen.Misbah is the man who will bat ascetically for hours and hours, and charge his partners to do the same. He is the guy who will settle into a meditative pursuit of ones and twos, and when he hits out and breaks the spell, make boundaries feel ritualistic. In the UAE, or in Sri Lanka, where Pakistan have played most under him, Misbah will ask his quicks to bowl so dry that if two spells were rubbed together a roaring fire would start.On day three, against New Zealand, Pakistan played like the team that has been shaped by this man for six years. They played with gritted teeth, were sane, and diligent. It just so happened that on this occasion they failed to make it pay off.Rather than deliver gladiatorial spells or swinging super-deliveries in the morning the three quicks merely set out to stick collectively to a plan. They bowled slightly shorter than they had the previous day, and had batsmen playing at more balls. Sohail Khan beat Henry Nicholls inside edge to hit his front pad, and Jeet Raval, BJ Watling and Todd Astle were all out fending to slip.These are not the kinds of performances that bring to mind soaring Qawwali or a verse from the Rubaiyat, but they do feature heavily in Pakistans Test-match days - they are the grain in the bags of the caravan Misbah has led to no. 2.With the bat, Pakistan were unwaveringly diligent. They knew they had played too many drives the previous day, so sought to cut them out. They hoped to bring Yasir Shah - their most consistent matcch winner - into the fray, and so tried to push the game into the final day. Nike Air Max Womens White Grey. Occasionally, their optimistic application calcified into inertia. Azhar Ali batted like he wanted to be the glue that held Pakistans innings together, but found he had stuck himself to a corner instead. It took him 45 dot balls to move beyond 19. A further 24 balls were spent on 31. Sami Aslam, Babar Azam and Misbah himself all spent considerable time at the crease, but no one mustered a strike rate close to 50. The bad balls they had hoped New Zealand would eventually deliver, never showed up.When we sat down and assessed our batting, we spoke about how we got out and we felt we were too loose yesterday, coach Mickey Arthur said after play. On a wicket like this you need to be hitting the ball straight and you need to make the bowlers come to you, and that opens up the leg side. Hats off to Azhar, he fought extremely hard - he just didnt get anything to score off. Credit goes to New Zealand because they bowled exceptionally well. The plan was to survive, survive, survive and pick up some balls to eventually score off, but New Zealand were relentless. We never ground them down.Ground down instead was Pakistans nerve. Misbah attempted to wrest momentum and was caught, hooking, at fine leg. Azhar lost his long concentration, and was bowled, off his inside edge. Two more batsmen followed soon after, and what could have been a day of steady gains became a sorry one.But even these kinds of days have not been atypical for Pakistan. Unlike some other teams in contention for the top ranking, they arent merely lions at home and losers outside their continent: they can be lions and losers in the same series - whipping Sri Lanka in a Galle Test one week then falling apart against a rookie spinner the next, dispatching West Indies in Abu Dhabi, before being dispatched in return, at Sharjah.This match has almost slipped, but perhaps Pakistan will hit back in Hamilton. Maybe the hunt for the top ranking is still on. What seems clear, though, is that there will be more days like this in their southern summer. There will be more days when the defy stereotype, when they work to plans, embrace caution, and the only inspired bursts have been in backroom meetings. There will be more days of Misbah zen.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Nike Air Max Womens Sale Gold . -- Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan has been ejected in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers for contact with an official.The Titans were lining up for just their second official play with a 7-0 lead when officials threw a handful of flags with Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion going unabated to quarterback Marcus Mariota. Lewan was arguing with Guion with back judge Steve Freeman trying to break up the Titans and Packers.Lewan appeared on replays to push away Freemans hand.Officials talked over the penalties, then announced their decision. An angry Lewan headed to the locker room and was replaced by Dennis Kelly.Running back DeMarco Murray capped the drive by throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker for a 14-0 lead.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max Womens Sale Blue .

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup.

ESPN looks at the potential strategy options for the Brazilian Grand Prix.Wet weather on race day morning means the teams slick-tyre strategies are likely to go out of the window. After a scorching hot Friday the teams understanding of the tyres at Interlagos is skewed given the 17C air temperature on Sunday morning, but the forecast is likely to mean the intermediate and full wets become the tyres of choice.On the off chance it does dry up ahead of the start of the race, the key to all strategies will be finding the balance between using the soft and medium tyres over a two-stop strategy (the hards are essentially redundant here, unless you are trying a one-stop).Pirelli recommends that the following numbers of laps are not exceeded on each compound:Hard = 38 laps Medium = 35 laps Soft = 18 lapsAnd on this basis, the possible pit-stop strategies predicted by Pirelli are as follows:QUUICKEST Three-stopper: 3 stints on soft of 15 laps + 1 stint on medium of 26 lapsSECOND-QUICKEST Two-stopper: 1 stint on soft of 15 laps + 2 stints on medium of 28 lapsSLOWEST Two-stopper: 1 stint on soft of 15 laps + 1 stint on medium of 26 laps + 1 stint on hard of 30 lapsAlso possible One-stopper: 1 stint on medium of 33 laps+ 1 stint on hard of 38 laps It was telling that none of the teams used intermediate tyres during the damp start to final practice and instead opted for the unfavoured full wets. Nike Air Max Womens Sale Green. This was a strategy to save all four sets as inters for the race in the event that the conditions are mixed, while still having two sets of new full wets available.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The New England Patriots came to Arizona without Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Rob Ninkovich and two starters on the defensive line.And came away 23-21 winners.This is awesome, Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan said after Sunday nights win. I dont even have words to express what this probably means to the whole team. Coming out here, playing on the road in a tough environment against a really good team.Jimmy Garoppolo , a third-year pro in his first start, completed 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. After Arizona had taken a 21-20 lead, he directed a 13-play, 61-yard drive that ended with Stephen Gostkowsks 32-yard field goal, what proved to be the game winner with 3:44 to play.Jimmy Garoppolo played very, very well, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said, knew he would.The Cardinals had a chance to win it but Chandler Catanzaro missed a 47-yard field goal with 41 seconds remaining.It was a tough start to the season for an Arizona team that has made it clear anything short of a Super Bowl would be a disappointment. Quarterback Carson Palmer said his team would bounce back.Any time you lose the opener at home, it hurts, he said. There is too much football ahead of us. There are too many guys that love the game, have the passion for the game and want to win, want to get it right.Here are some things to consider about the Patriots Sunday night victory.LOW SNAP, BIG MISS: The snap on what would have been the game-winning field goal for Arizona was low, the first big moment for the Cardinals rookie long snapper.Kameron Canaday won the job late in the preseason to replace longtime snapper Mike Leach, who retired.It was a little low, he said. I wish I could take it back but I cant.Catanzaro made no excuses.I know in my heart I should have made that kick, he said. So this game falls on me, and I hate it. But I know Im going to step up when the team needs me next.RECEIVING DEPTH: Much is made of the Cardinals depth and talent at receiver, but the Patriots group isnt bad, either.And in Gronkowskis absence, several were on hand to help their young quarterback. None was more important than Julian Edelman. Seven times he was Garoppolos target and he caught all seven.Hogan had three catches, including a 37-yard touchdown reception. Danny Amendola had three catches, including a 32-yarder.Guys stepped up and that is what you have to do in this league, Hogan said. Injuries are part of the game and people have to step up and I think a lot of guys did that.AGELESS FITZGERALD: Larry Fitzgerald caught both of Arizonas touchdown passes, the second a marvelous, over-the-shoulder, sliding grab to put the Cardinals up in the fourth quarter.Entering his 13th NFL season, he finished with eight catches for 81 yards. The last touchdown catch was the 100th of his career, tying him with Hall of Famers Tim Brown and Steve Largent for eighth on the NFLs all-time list.Fitzgerald also moved past Torry Holt into 14th on the NFL career yards receiving list.There was a report that Fitzgerald has told people close to him that this would be his last year as a player.I dont talk about the future, he said. What Im doing next year is of no importance. This is the year and I want to make sure its a great one.ON THE RUN: The Patriots kept Arizona running back David Johnson in check most of the night, except for one big play.On that 45-yard run, Johnson spun away from tacklers at the line of scrimmage, put his hand on the ground to steady himself, then stiff-armed a defender before racing down the field.The guy is unbelievable, Fitzgerald said. He is a guy that can change the complexion of the game in one touch.The run set up the TD that put Arizona ahead in the fourth quarter.BELICHICKS STORY LINE: New England coach Bill Belichick was of no help to the throng of reporters who were looking to build their game stories around Garoppolo.He was asked his thoughts on Garoppolo being the story line for Monday and whether he was minimizing the young quarterbacks play.I mean, Im really, really concerned about the story line, Belichick said with obvious sarcasm. Like, theres really nothing higher on my list than the story line tomorrow.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max 90 . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Air Max 90 Sale .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. http://www.airmax90trainerssale.com/ . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Indias biggest tennis event of the year is a week away. And its free for all - literally. Spain will be fielding a full-strength side for the Davis Cup tie against India from September 16-18, with Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer and Feliciano Lopez all part of the team, but fans wont have to pay to watch - entrance to the tie in New Delhi will be through free passes.Though there was an obvious scope to offer tickets at a price, we didnt want to deprive people of an opportunity to watch some great tennis. Wed rather have spectators at the stands than sell tickets, AITA secretary general Hiranmoy Chatterjee told ESPN.The RK Khanna tennis stadium in New Delhi, the venue for the tie, boasts of a seating capacity of 5015, well above the 4000-seater minimum pre-requisite for hosting a World Group play-off tie. With matches slated to be played under floodlights, it could turn out be a packed affair.Adding that though there have in the past been instances of Davis Cup tickets being offered at a price, Chatterjee said that in recent times it has largely been a free-for-all affair which the national federation did not deem appropriate to change just to make slightly better business sense.ddddddddddddndias lone marquee ATP event, Chennai Open, which staged its 21st edition in January this year, had its tickets pegged at a humble Rs 150- Rs 5000 range. World No 4 Stan Wawrinka, making his seventh appearance in the tournament, was the chief attraction and didnt disappoint. He walked away with the title for the third time in a row.The well-heeled International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) on the other hand, which featured Nadal and Roger Federer among a host of other big-ticket names in its second edition last December, had its cheapest ticket priced at Rs 4000 with the expensive variant hovering around a whopping Rs 48000.

LONDON -- Baseball has a rival for inclusion in the Olympics: Jousting. Wholesale Adidas NEO 2018 .Ahead of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, the English Heritage charity launched a campaign Thursday for the ancient equestrian sport to be included on the program at future editions of the games.English Heritages Lucy Hutchings says jousting requires similar levels of athleticism and artistry as other official Olympic sports and has its roots in ancient Greece.Its unlikely to happen anytime soon. Jousting, which sees competitors wearing armor gallop toward opponents thrusting a lance, is not a mass participation sport.The International Olympic Committee already has a shortlist under consideration to be added to the program for the 2020 Tokyo Games. The IOC will select one of baseball-softball, surfing, skateboarding, karate and sports climbing at a meeting next month. Cheap Adidas NEO 2017 .

The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. VILLANOVA, Pa. -- Jay Wright slipped in and out of his competitive consciousness in the national championship game. He cringed as a coach as Villanovas late lead trickled away against North Carolina. He loved the frenzy as a basketball fan watching the Wildcats and Tar Heels go shot-for-shot in one of the NCAA Tournaments classic finals.This is what its like when youre in the final and playing the best team in the country, Wright said. Little times it hits you like, wow, this is a great game.Little times. Like when North Carolinas Marcus Paige hit a double-clutch 3 to tie the game at 74 with 4.7 seconds left.When Paige hit that shot, I had a second or two to think, this game is unbelievable and it could go into overtime and make it even more amazing, Wright said.Oh, the game got more amazing -- no overtime necessary.Kris Jenkins squashed the OT bid with a shot forever engraved as the biggest one in Villanova -- heck, maybe March Madness -- history. Jenkins spotted up behind the right side of the arc and buried a 3 at the buzzer to deliver Villanova to a 77-74 victory.A miracle shot? Not quite. The Wildcats practiced that play for years and used a variation to reach the 2009 Final Four. The Wildcats were squashed by the Tar Heels in `09 and crashed into a March funk that lingered until last season.With a championship banner to match one from 1985 nestled in the Pavilion rafters, the Wildcats must now hope that championship revelry doesnt equate to a follow-up hangover.The Wildcats suffered from a whopper following the 2009 run. The Wildcats dropped from 30 wins in 2009 to 25, 21 and then bottomed out at 13-19 and no postseason in 2011-12. Wright could not say no to friends or speaking engagements in the immediate aftermath of 2009 and the program seemed to waver from its recruiting foundation. He chased McDonalds All-Americans or transfers who didnt necessarily fit the program and it took a few seasons to stabilize.There were definitely times at the end of that, it was spiraling, Wright said. It really didnt affect us until a couple of years later. I knew it then. ... We were really preparing for that this time.As distractions mounted, Wright vowed this summer to stay connected to his family, players, coaches and recruits. Yes, there were stops at the ESPYs and a trip to the White House, but the big picture of staying focused on this season and beyond was not lost on Wright. Wright, 354-157 with two Final Fours in 15 seasons at Villanova, reigned in his commitments even as charities and corporations wanted a piece of the championship `Cat.Wright tightened control this summer and even closed down the basketball office for a week in August for the first time so the entire staff could relax and regroup.Ive had to say no to a lot of people, and Ive probably disappointed a lot of people and I feel bad about that, I really do, he said. But the last time, I felt like it was my responsibility as the Villanova coach to do everything I was asked to do at Villanova. Mens Adidas NEO Shoes. I did it. It got a little out of control. No, it got out of control.The Wildcats had not advanced out of the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament since 2009 and lost two straight seasons in the opening round as a 1 or 2 seed.In March, they were in a pressure spot again: a No. 2 seed about to play pesky Iowa with a Sweet 16 berth at stake and a potential burden lifted. Wright sensed pressure had seeped into the Big East powerhouses environment.Our fans were tense. Our families were tense. The Philadelphia media was tense, Wright said.Wright couldnt even break that tension with his confidants. Wright likes to linger in the locker room during pregame warmups and talk life with Villanovas team chaplain and sports psychologist. All Wright found were a bundle of nerves under the collar of Rev. Rob Hagan.I could even sense he was nervous for me, Wright said, laughing. This is big.The Wildcats instead cruised past Iowa. They followed with wins over Miami and Kansas, crushed Oklahoma by 44 in the Final Four and made first-weekend flops a distant memory.They didnt fear that failure, Wright said. But everyone else did. Id be lying if I said I didnt have a little bit of concern for them. I was not worried about it. But I was worried for them and everyone else.The Wildcats quickly learned being called champs comes with more than a ring and a banner. It means mingling with the president and getting hounded for autographs and photos on social outings.I definitely feel like were treated differently, Wright said. I can see it. I can feel it. All the time. I dont want to be different. I enjoyed the way we were doing it. Even losing in the second round, I was loving those teams.So the question looms, armed with a heap of expectations, can Villanova repeat?We could, Wright said. But we could lose to anybody again. Weve made it true. Weve lost to everybody and weve won it all. But I think were good enough.Jenkins, Jalen Brunson, preseason All-American Josh Hart and the rest of the returning core should keep the Wildcats on track to try and become college basketballs first repeat champions since Florida in 2006 and 2007.Villanova President Rev. Peter Donohue bellowed to fans last week at a kickoff celebration that Villanova is going to do it again!Thats pressure from the boss! Wright said with a smile over the house mic.Again the Big East favorites and ranked fourth in the AP preseason Top 25, the Wildcats wont judge this season on a banner-or-bust scale.The only way we can top that or be better than that is to be the best team we can be by the end of the year, Jenkins said. If that wins us another national championship, then cool.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Canada 216 (Dutta 43, Jasdeep 4-51, Hutchinson 2-20) beat USA 199 (Dodson 73, Babar 62, Dhindsa 4-37, Pervez 3-42) by 17 runsScorecardAnother superb spell by Cecil Pervez helped Canada stave off USAs lower order and retain the Auty Cup, as they secured a 17-run win in the second match at Woodley Park on Friday. Wholesale Ultra Boost . Pervez followed up his 3 for 38 in the first match on Thursday with 3 for 42, including the key scalp of Akeem Dodson for 73.USA, who had won the toss earlier, got off to a shaky start in their chase of Canadas 216, when they stumbled to 10 for 3 in four overs. Abdullah Syed was bowled for a golden duck by a Pervez inswinger in the first over, before Alex Amsterdam and captain Steven Taylor were both caught driving to Canada captain Nitish Kumar at backward point, off Satsimranjit Dhindsa.Dodson and opener Fahad Babar then put on a USA fourth-wicket record partnership of 127 - also USAs best ever stand against Canada for any wicket - to dig the hosts out of a major hole. Dodson counterattacked early in his innings, exploiting the short straight boundary as he skipped down the track to loft offspinner Nikhil Dutta over long-on for six in the eighth over. He eventually brought up his fifty off 62 balls in the 25th over, while Babar brought up the same landmark off 79 balls in the 30th.Kumar rotated his spinners in an effort to slow down the scoring rate and build pressure. It had its desired effect by the 32nd, when Dodson offered his first chance on 54, drilling a return catch to Varun Sehdev that ricocheted off the bowlers hand and had the crowd gasping as it nearly carried to the fielder charging in from the long-off boundary. Babar eventually cracked at the other end with two balls to go in the 36th, when he tried to guide Junaid Siddiquis legspin behind point but played on to his stumps instead. This opened the door to the rest of USAs fragile middle order.Dodson offered another chance just two balls later, driving Dutta flat to long off, where substitute fielder Shehan Kamileen spilled the chance. Dutta plugged away and eventually got his first wicket later in the over as Nicholas Standford played around his pads to be trapped in front for a third-ball duck.With USA needing 64 off nine overs and Dodson still at the crease on 73, Kumar brought back Pervez for his second spell. The seamer struck with his fifth ball, getting one to jag back from outside off and bowl Dodson. It was the first of four wickets in consecutive overs, as keeper Hamza Tariq caught Timil Patel - down the leg side - off Dhindsa in the 43rd over, and Hammad Shahid off Pervez in the 44th. Dhindsa then induced a leading edge from Jessy Singh for the ninth wicket, to put Canada within one wicket of victory at 163 for 9 in the 45th.Elmore Hutchinson, the only other USA player to reach double figures, gave them hope briefly when he sandwiched a cut through point for four between two monstrous sixes over the sightscreen to take Pervez for 19 in the 46th over. Dhindsa followed that up with a sloppy over that included two wides and another four through point, to bring the equation down to 21 off 18 balls.A long Canadian team discussion ensued before Kumar gave the ball to left-arm spinner Salman Nazar, who had figures of 0 for 25 in four overs at that stage and hadnt bowled since the 17th over. After three singles off the first five balls, Nazar ended the match with an arm ball to No. 11 Prashanth Nair, who tried to dab it past the keeper, expecting turn, but instead chopped it onto his stumps. Hutchinson was left stranded on 37.Earlier in the day, five Canadian batsmen crossed 20 but nobody reached 50. Dutta, promoted to No. 4 after making a second-ball duck on Thursday at No. 8, top-scored with 43. He came in after Hutchinson dismissed both openers inside the Powerplay, having Bhavindu Adhihetty caught slogging to mid-on for 14, and Srimantha Wijeratne edging a flick down the leg side for 18.Nitish Kumar made a brisk 32 at No. 3, before he was caught in the covers off Nairs left-arm spin. Coming together at 74 for 3, Dutta and Sehdev then produced Canadas best partnership of the day, putting on 53 for the fourth wicket, before legspinner Patel had Sehdev caught behind for 26. Nazar then spooned a catch to Taylor at midwicket in Patels next over before Dutta fell in the 37th, chopping onto his stumps off Shahid, who was USAs most troublesome bowler on the day and finished with 1 for 28.Singh came back for a late spell after going wicketless with the new ball and won three lbw appeals to dismiss Hamza Tariq, and then Siddiqui and Dhindsa off consecutive balls. Canada were reduce to 197 for 9, but USAs inability to polish off the tail for the second time cost them. No. 9 Dilon Heyliger crashed Singhs hat-trick ball for six over long-off to start the 49th, and followed it with a four over midwicket and another towering six over long-off. He finished with a vital 31 off 17 balls that helped add 19 runs for the last wicket which eventually accounted for the winning margin. Ultra Boost Discount .
