After having played five games and winning four of them in 10 days, No. Cheap Dario Saric Jersey . 23 Rhode Island was anxious to get back to business as usual before hosting Belmont on Friday night.Im proud of the guys and happy, obviously, coach Dan Hurley said after his Rams lost to No. 1 Duke in the final of the Hall of Fame Tip Off Tournament in Connecticut last Sunday.We would have loved to have won today or least have a chance in the last minute or two, but the reality of it is, five games in 10 days, thats like an NBA schedule and then add into that ... we played a war, Cincinnati (in the semifinals) probably took a little bit from us today.Not to make any excuses at all, but that was a taxing war we played with a high-level team and then to turn around and face the No. 1 team in the country; that was a tall task for us but, man, we learned a lot about ourselves this weekend about what we can be and weve got to kind of get cleaned up the next time, hopefully in March that we face somebody like this.The Rams started the season ranked 23rd, moved up to No. 21 and then dropped back to 23 after the loss. They now face a 1-2 Belmont team at home before a tough week next week -- at Valparaiso and at local rival Providence and the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence.Just proud of the way the guys play(ed) the whole weekend, Hurley said Sunday. I think today was a tremendous learning experience for us that we can move on from.Belmont, picked preseason to win the Ohio Valley Conference, has lost to Vanderbilt and Florida and defeated Western Kentucky.At Florida, the Bruins, who are led in scoring (20.7 per game) and rebounding (8.3) by 6-foor-7 forward Evan Bradds, the OVC preseason player of the year, didnt score for the first 5:13 and fell behind 24-4 before making a game of it.A 3-point shooting team, they went 25-for-75 from behind the arc in the first two games but were just 7-for-27 against Florida.Now, theyre on to URI.Rhode Island presents a number of challenges for any opponent it faces, coach Eric Byrd said Wednesday. In watching them on film, their individual talent and versatility jump off the screen. Their players play with great confidence.E.C. Matthews, who was handled by Dukes Grayson Allen and scored just nine points Sunday, leads the Rams in scoring at 17.4 points per game -- with four starter averaging in double figures through the first five games. Hassan Martin, who is scoring at a 13.6 per game clip, leads URI in rebounding with 7.4 boards per contest.We beat an outstanding team, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said Sunday. Danny, he hasnt built a team, hes built a program. They love one another, they play together ... it was such a competitive game.

For that great man, that wonderful human to watch it in person here in his home, in his house, I think its only fitting.Rockies manager Walt Weiss doesnt share in Roberts enthusiasm, but believes playing for an opportunity to prevent such a title celebration can benefit his players.I think it goes without saying that its good for the young players to play down the stretch against some of these teams in (seeking) the playoffs, Weiss said. Its good for your players to see that, the young players especially. Chalk it up to experience and persepective.Brandon McCarthy (2-2 3.63 ERA) gets the start for the Dodgers instead of Rich Hill.

He hasnt earned a win since July 9 when he beat the Padres.McCarthy is 2/3 with a 4.74 ERA in seven starts against the Rockies. He pitched five scoreless innings on two hits in a victory over Colorado on July 2.Weve got McCarthy going (Sunday), Roberts said. The energy was great (Saturday) and obviously a carry-over from the (celebration) we had for Vin (Friday night) and the expectation and anticipation for clinching a fourth division title in a row.Rookie Tyler Anderson (5-5, 3.58) stands between the Dodgers and their bid for history. Anderson is 0-4 with a 5.10 ERA in six road starts and beat Los Angeles twice this season at Coors Field.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays claimed right-hander Thad Weber off waivers on Sunday from the San Diego Padres. Cheap Mets Jerseys Authentic . Toronto optioned the 28-year-old to triple-A Buffalo and made room on the 40-man roster by transferring oft-injured right-hander Sergio Santos to the 60-day disabled list. Weber has made three relief appearances for the Padres this season, posting a 2.00 earned-run average over nine innings pitched. He made six starts last season with triple-A Tucson of the PCL and posted a 4-1 record with a 3.93 ERA. The Nebraska native also appeared in two games for the Detroit Tigers. Santos injured the right triceps in his throwing arm, just above his elbow. He was placed on the 15-day in mid-April and has only appeared in 11 games for Toronto since joining the team prior to the 2012 season. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. Cheap MLB Jerseys ., for the next three years with the signings on Monday of Daryl Townsend and Michael Carter. http://www.cheapmetsjerseys.com/ . PAUL, Minn.CLEVELAND, Ohio - In this day and age, a manager will gladly take the pitching line Josh Johnson served up. Seven innings, two earned runs on three hits, two walks and six strikeouts. Only five base runners against and five three-up, three-down frames. "Thats what we look for out of him," said manager John Gibbons. "If he can do that every time he goes out there, weve got a shot. It was a lot like that game in San Francisco when he came back from his arm injury. He pitched a heck of a ballgame." Just one problem: the Blue Jays didnt score and in the process, wasted one of the best efforts Johnson has given the club in his injury-interrupted, disappointing first season in Toronto. In a 3-0 loss, it was the fourth inning which proved to be the difference. The game was scoreless. The Jays already had stranded four runners, two of them in scoring position, over the first three innings. Colby Rasmus led off with an opposite field double. Maicer Izturis followed with a first pitch single through the right side and suddenly Toronto had runners at the corners with nobody out. But, like with prior opportunities and similar to those that would come, the Jays offence couldnt produce. Rajai Davis hit a comebacker to Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez, who froze Rasmus at third and took the force out of Izturis at second. Davis promptly stole second base with J.P. Arencibia at the plate. Arencibia, however, struck out looking and Emilio Bonifacio flied out. Inning over, more runners stranded, another chance squandered. With one out in their half of the fourth, the Indians drew their first base runner when Johnson walked Asdrubal Cabrera. Jason Kipnis followed with Clevelands first hit of the night, a single up the middle. Two hits later, RBI singles by Nick Swisher and Michael Brantley, the Indians had a 2-0 lead and the momentum in the game. Clevelands only other chance to score came in the eighth when Drew Stubbs doubled off Steve Delabar. A sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly later, it was 3-0 Indians. It was a case of Cleveland doing a lot with a little and the Blue Jays doing nothing with more than enough. "We just couldnt get anything going tonight," said Gibbons. "Even in that last inning we had a couple of guys on but we couldnt string any or hit a ball in a gap or anything like that." There is Johnson, stuck on one win, called upon to pitch inside and to be more aggressive and to trust his stuff, admitting the lack of success is mentally taxing. It must be, considering he was a key piece of oone of general manager Alex Anthopoulos offseason blockbusters and hes an impending free agent whose value is slipping. Cheap Mets Jerseys China. "Youve always got to stay positive," said Johnson. "Youve got to find a way to stay positive. Its tough at times but youve got to find a way. Youve got some good teammates here who definitely help you through it and always be positive and there for you to help you get through it." Johnson also has his manager, Gibbons, who rarely makes mound visits when hes not going to change the pitcher. Gibbons made an exception in that fourth inning, as Johnson was struggling. "Thats between us," said Gibbons, when asked his message for Johnson. "He said youve got this and thats pretty much it," said Johnson. "Maybe a little bit more than that but just believe in yourself, dont worry about it and go get em." Its easier said than done, as Johnson is finding out this season. Hell take his fourth attempt at a second victory in the Blue Jays final game before the All-Star break, on Sunday in Baltimore. The Orioles are the only team Johnsons beaten this season. ROTATING THE ROTATION Thanks to the off day Monday, manager John Gibbons is afforded the opportunity to juggle his starting rotation. R.A. Dickey will now pitch on Thursday afternoon against the Indians. Hell be on regular four days of rest. Mark Buehrle will be pushed back to Friday, the opener of a three-game series in Baltimore. Based on numbers, the move makes sense. In three starts against the Orioles this season, Dickey is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA. Buehrle, strangely, has yet to pitch against Baltimore this season despite the Jays and Orioles having hooked up for 10 games over three series. LAWRIE AT SECOND BASE Brett Lawrie, on the disabled list since May 29th with a left ankle sprain, arrived in Syracuse in time to be in the starting lineup for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night. That Lawrie was promoted as a continuation of his rehab assignment is hardly surprising. That he started at second base caught observers attention and renewed speculation the club may be considering a move. Remember Lawrie, 23, played two rehab games at second base for Single-A Dunedin in April. At the time, Lawrie was recovering from a strained oblique suffered before the World Baseball Classic. The plug quickly was pulled on the experiment, and Lawrie was brought back to the big leagues, when Jose Reyes went down with an ankle injury on April 12. In 37 games this season, Lawrie is hitting .209/.268/.374 with five home runs and 14 RBI.

EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Eskimos lost the game, and possibly a big part of their offence on Friday night. Cheap Lakers Jerseys . Craig Newmans 57-yard interception return for a touchdown with 25 seconds left in the fourth quarter capped a late rally as the Saskatchewan Roughriders scored a 31-24 come-from-behind victory over Edmonton in CFL pre-season play. After Riders quarterback Tino Sunseri hit DeDe Dorsey for a TD on third and goal from the Eskimos one-yard line to tie the game 24-24 with 54 seconds left, Newman picked off a deflected pass by Edmonton pivot Jonathan Crompton on the ensuing drive and raced in for the decisive points. The focus for the Eskimos afterwards wasnt the last-second loss, but rather the status of quarterback Matt Nichols. The 26-year-old, who has been in a dead heat for the starting job with Mike Reilly through training camp, went down in the end zone when he was hit by Riders defensive end Kenny Rowe while trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception late in the first quarter. Nichols, who suffered a gruesome injury to his left ankle in last seasons East Division semifinal loss to the Toronto Argonauts, left the game with a right knee injury and was seen leaving the stadium on crutches. His immediate prognosis was not known and doctors will take a more in-depth look on the weekend. "I just went down and felt a little twist," Nichols said. "The doctors have looked at it and it looks like there are decent signs. We wont know anything until we get a picture of it. All I can do right now is hope for the best. "Im optimistic. My ankle injury last year, that was the first time I have ever been hurt. This is a new feeling for me, so it is hard to have an idea on my own how bad it is. Im just hoping for the best right now." Eskimos head coach Kavis Reed was also hopeful, saying it would be a shame if Nichols was out long term after putting in the hard work to compete for the starting job. "Were going to see how it settles tonight and assess it tomorrow," he said. "Hopefully it is not serious. Sometimes it looks worse than it is. I am very hopeful that it is not something catastrophic and season-ending. Matt has worked exceptionally hard to come back from his injury in the playoffs and I would be very disappointed for that young man if this is a serious injury." Nichols said there is nothing he can do but wait. "Its obviously a tough situation," he said. "It is part of this game, though. Its not something that is going to hold me back. Im going to do whatever I can to get healthy as soon as possible, whatever the situation is." As for the game itself, Saskatchewan head coach Corey Chamblin was pleased with the overall effort in the comeback win. "There was a lot to learn from that game," he said. "We had some penalties and some stuff we need to clean up. But as far as being able to come back and showing some resiliency, I was very pleased that our team was able to fight back. We said we were coming here to win and the guys did that." Drew Willy got the start at quarterback for Saskatchewan and engineered a scoring drive on the Riders first possession as Chris Milo nailed a 40-yard field goal six minutes in. Edmonton went up 7-3 with three minutes to play in the opening quarter when Don Oramasionwu popped a ball loose from Riders receiver Taj Smith. Eskimos defensive back Marcel Young scooped up the loose ball and galloped 58 yards into the end zone. The Saskatchewan defence got those points back just two minutes later on the play that led to Nichols injury as he saw his pass bounce off of a receiver and into the hands of Carlos Thomas, who took it back 30 yards for the touchdown and a 10-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. Reilly came in to take Nichols place and was subsequently picked off by Woodny Turene, but Milo missed his second field goal of the night as the Roughriders settled for a single point. Edmonton went up 14-11 with three minutes to play in the second when Reilly connected on a long pass to Isaiah Sweeney, who turned on the jets and outran a pair of pursuers for a 77-yard touchdown. Saskatchewan, which will host the 2013 Grey Cup, was pressing late in the first half but receiver Scott McHenrys fumble at the Eskimos 21-yard line was recovered by Edmontons Eric Samuels. The Roughriders pulled even with five minutes left in the third quarter as Brody McKnight kicked a 27-yard field goal on the heels of a 50-yard passing play from Sunseri to Greg Carr. The Eskimos went back up 21-14 with a minute to play in the third after Roughriders returner Phillip Livas bobbled a punt and it was recovered on his teams seven-yard line. Edmonton quarterback Jacory Harris, who came in to start the third quarter, took it in himself on the next play. Saskatchewan notched a McKnight field goal five minutes into the fourth quarter to close it to 21-17, but Grant Shaw restored the seven-point edge with his first field goal of the game for Edmonton with three minutes left on the clock before Saskatchewan rallied late.

Saskatchewan hosts the Calgary Stampeders in the final pre-season game for both clubs on Thursday, while Edmonton visits the B.C. Lions on Friday. ...

LONDON -- Mo Farah cruised to victory in the 5,000 meters and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce fell short in a sluggish sprint on Saturday in contrasting fortunes for the Olympic champions in their final races before heading to Rio de Janeiro.Back on the London track where he became a double Olympic champion four years ago, Farah dominated the field to finish 15 seconds ahead of fellow Briton Andrew Butchart.Farah clocked 12 minutes, 59.29 seconds at the London Diamond League meet, delighting home fans at the Olympic Stadium.Not many people get a chance to compete in their home town and have so many memories of the place, said Farah, who also won gold in the 10,000 at the 2012 Olympics.The 33-year-old Farah has never felt in better shape heading into a major event.Training is going well, he said. Its harder for me to defend (the titles), the reason being the rest of the guys had four years preparation to try and beat me.The other headline attraction on Saturday, Fraser-Pryce, knows what its like to be beaten after running the 100 in 11.06 seconds to finish third.I dont have a lot of fitness because I havent been racing, the Jamaicann said. Cheap Lakers Jerseys China. So it was very important for me to come here to do these runs, just to see where I am and go back to training.The race was won by Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast with a personal best of 10.96, with Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago 0.03 seconds adrift.Fraser-Pryce, a championship specialist who has won three world and two Olympic golds in the 100, is trying to become the first woman to win the same individual event at three successive Olympics next month.Im hoping for the impossible to happen, she said. Psychologically I think am in a better place than I was a couple of weeks ago because I was really struggling.I am really confident. I am comfortable with where I am at. I am not 100 percent where I want to be, but you have to use what you have and get there.There was a more predictable outcome in the 200, with world champion Dafne Schippers winning in 22.13.Im comfortable with being tagged as the favorite, the Dutch sprinter said. Im never nervous which is good for me.

ENCINITAS, California -- A row of girls in hot-pink helmets huddle around the bowl at Encinitas Community Park. Stephen Curry 2 Blue And Yellow . With skateboards in hand, they know they can do anything. I feel free, 11-year-old competitor Stella Reynolds says before her heat. There are competitors between the ages of 4 and 40, donning turquoise helmets, carrying neon-orange skateboards, wearing shirts that say Boss and Fearless. With the bowl, vert and street courses their canvas and the tricks their paint, these girls and women ripped from morning to sunset.Welcome to Exposure Skate 2016, the premier female skateboarding event in the world, held in Southern California each November since 2012. This years competition featured 171 amateurs and pros from all over the world, competing on three types of courses: vert, bowl and street. Vert, short for vertical ramp, is similar in many ways to a snowboard halfpipe, and the bowl is just what it sounds like -- a giant bowl that skaters stay inside. Street involves tricks in public spaces like down stairs and on railings.At this years event, the parking lot was already jammed by 8 a.m. Girls and women go to compete -- but also hope to get a glimpse of pros like Lizzie Armanto, Brighton Zeuner and Lacey Baker. This is the competition that, if youre a girl, you have to be here. This is it. There is no bigger competition, said Hagan McCreath, 40, of Monster Skatepark in Sydney, Australia, who also served as an emcee at Exposure.Amelia Brodka couldnt have pictured this scene when she co-founded the nonprofit organization Exposure Skate, dedicated to empowering girls and women in skateboarding. The idea came after she directed the documentary Underexposed, which highlighted the lack of opportunities for female skateboarders. Exposure the event was born in 2012, with proceeds going toward helping survivors of domestic violence. It feels like a community, it feels like a family out here, Brodka said. These women want to see the sport grow and they want to support all the other girls.There were winners, like Zeuner, age 12, in pro bowl; Armanto, 23, in pro vert; and Alexis Sablone, 30, in pro street. But skateboarding veteran Dave Duncan, emceeing the event, reminded the crowd of something equally important: It doesnt matter if you win or lose. If youre having a good day, if youre having fun, thats what skateboardings all about.What does this event mean to the girls and women who compete each year? We talked to seven of them to find out.Quinne Daniels, 8, and Julie Daniels, 52; Manhattan Beach, CaliforniaQuinne wouldnt stop smiling, even as her mother, Julie, placed a bandage on her bloody knee from a recent skateboard fall. With a temporary, red star tattoo on her other thigh, rainbow socks, turquoise laces and a Girl is not a 4 letter word shirt, Quinne was ready to ride in the amateur 14-and-under bowl.She has been skating for a year and a half. Her mother suggested she try the sport since she had mastered her scooter. Soon, she attended her first skateboarding camp. I dropped in my first day, Quinne said, beaming. It felt pretty awesome.This was her first time competing at Exposure, though she attended the event last year with her mother. She saw other girls competing and she was just google-eyed, Julie said. We were going to come back again as spectators, but she was asked to compete. She had so much fun!Jordyn Barratt, 17; Encinitas, CaliforniaJordyn Barratt has racked up numerous skateboarding medals, including first place at the 2016 Girls Combi Classic in the 15-and-over amateurs division, and third at this years X Games in Austin, Texas, in womens skateboard park. But Exposure provides something equally special for her: Everyone is empowering each other to land a trick, Barratt said. Its not like, Dang she landed it. Its like, Yeah! She landed it! Thats so rad!Winning is always a fun thing to do and being competitive is super fun, said Barratt, who took second in both the pro bowl and vert competitions, but hanging out with your friends at a skate park and pushing each other to do a trick, finally getting that trick and being so stoked for each other, knowing how hard it is -- no matter if youre an older guy or a young little girl -- were all here supporting each other.Stephanie Allen, 40; Oceanside, CaliforniaStephanie Allen double-checked with Exposure to make sure she was the oldest competitor. By a long shot, Allen said, proudly, as her cheetah elbow and knee pads and her lime-green board glimmered in the sun.Its been a journey, said Allen, who began skating last year. She had been sick for the past nine years, and extremely ill for the past two. Thats when she was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, hypogammaglobulinemia.She was barred from surfing due to monthly blood plasma transfusions, which left her immune system unable to fight off the germs and bacteria in the ocean. I was like, Thats it. Im going to learn how to skate. I dont care that Im 39! Allen said.To me, this is kind of a rebirth. This is showing me that life can really turn around, said Allen, who said she feels healthier than ever. For me to just be here and celebrate being alive and healthy and being able to skate, Im amped. Skateboarding saved my soul.Sari Simpson, 16; Sydney, AustraliaSimpson followed Exposure veterans on Instagram over the past few years. She aspired to come to the United States and compete, practicing daily on a bowl at the end of the block of her Sydney home.Im used to competing against two girls at the most, maybe three, Simpson said. Its so good when you go to a skate park and the guys will be like, What are you doing here? Whats a girl doing here? Then you start skating and they see that girls can skate too.Simpson no longer feels like an outsider. Exposure allowed her to meet new friends and push her skills to a new level, as she took first in the amateur 15-and-over vert and third in the amateur 15-and-over bowl.To compete against this many girls, has been so much fun, Simpson said. Its been a dream seeing all these girls who love skateboarding like I do.Kendra Sebelius, 37; Vista, California and Aubrey Kelsay, 9; Encinitas, CaliforniaThough Sebelius and Kelsay are 28 years apart, the two friends share a love of skateboarding. They also happen to share the same birthday -- on the day of Exposure -- where they both competed in bowl.It was meant to be, said Sebelius, taking off her purple helmet, recalling how the two met at Alga Norte Community Park in nearby Carlsbad.Sebelius originally frequented skate parks to follow her crush, a skater boy. Then, she grew tired of watching. She wanted to drop in, despite her fear of heights. Skateboarding has taught me perspective, patience and persistence, Sebelius said. You have to keep going.Kelsay, who has watermelon grip tape spray-painted on her skateboard, started skating a year ago after it was getting too cold to surf. She loved the challenge. It helps prove that girls can do the same things that boys can do, Kelsay said.The pair often practices together. We just fell in love with each other, Sebelius said. She makes me want to be better and to do it, because if she can do it, why am I letting it stop me? Under Armour Scorpio Chrome . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today.

He improved to 4-1 with a 2.13 ERA against St. Louis.I face them more often, DeSclafani said.

METIAIRE, La. Nike Roshe One Pas Cher . -- The New Orleans Pelicans have waived veteran forward Alonzo Gee, a move that keeps recently acquired guard Lance Stephenson on the opening night roster.I was nervous but confident at the same time, the 6-foot-5 Stephenson said after practice Monday. I try to control what I can control. I can control going hard in practice. I control being with the coaches and learning everything I can possibly learn and being a good teammate.Stephenson has struggled to find a long-term fit since leaving Indiana in 2014, playing with Charlotte, the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis during the past two seasons. Deserved or not, he became saddled with a reputation of being selfish and unreliable. He said he intends to show everyone that he is not the person that you heard about.Stephenson was productive late last season with the Grizzlies, averaging 14.2 points in 26 games. The Pelicans decided to give him a chance with a low-risk, non-guaranteed contract, meaning he had to make the team in preseason.I just had to earn a spot and it shows how confident I am, Stephenson said. I feel like I can do whatever the coach wants me to do. I can rebound or play defense. I can play the point. I can make something happen. Im a great play-maker.The 6-foot-6 Gee, acquired by New Orleans during the 2015 offseason, appeared in 73 games with the Pelicans last season, averaging 4.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22.4 minutes per game.Gee also has played with Washington, San Antonio, Cleveland, Denver and Portland since going undrafted out of Alabama in 2009. He has career averages of 6.8 points and 3.3 rebounds.We probably needed another play-maker, so thats why we went with Lance, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. It helps in that hes a ball-handler and he does have the ability to maybe play in three different positions.Gentry added that Gee did a lot for our team last year and hes a guy tats well-respected on this team. So what happens is you just make a basketball decision and thats basically what it came down to.The Pelicans, who open their season at home against Denver on Wednesday night, have two regular guards and a small forward sidelined for the time being. Starting point guard Jrue Holiday is on indefinite leave to tend to his wife, retired soccer star Lauren Holiday, who is recovering from brain surgery and gave birth last month to their daughter. Guard Tyreke Evans and small forward Quincy Pondexter are rehabilitating from knee surgeries.Gentry said those absences were a factor in keeping Stephenson.Weve still got some guys injury-wise thats going to be out, so we took a chance on bringing him in and taking a look at him, and we just felt like he could do some things that we needed that we didnt have available right now, Gentry said. All I can do is judge him by what hes done here. I havent had any problems at all coaching him. I havent had any problems at all when I corrected him. http://www.superstarrosepascher.fr/ . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year.
