Its been 24 seasons since the Kansas City Chiefs found a way to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Custom Dallas Mavericks Jerseys . The season opener of the 1993 season saw Kansas City travel to Tampa in the first Chiefs game for future Hall of Famers, quarterback Joe Montana and running back Marcus Allen. K.C. won easily, 27-3.The Bucs (4-5) have since won four in a row against the Chiefs (7-2) and will try to push that streak to five games with their Sunday visit to Arrowhead Stadium. Its a noon kickoff CST, with weather predicted for sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s. Kansas City is a 7 1/2-point favorite.The Chiefs have a few active streaks on the line as well. Since November 2015, the Chiefs are 17-2 in regular-season games, a won-lost record thats three games better than the next most successful team. Theyve won five straight games this season and theyre on a 10-game winning streak at Arrowhead Stadium.Both teams are coming off victories -- the Buccaneers crushed Chicago 36-10, while the Chiefs fought back from a 17-0 deficit to beat Carolina on the road, 20-17. That victory gave them not only a piece of first place in the AFC West, but a share of first in the AFC with New England and Oakland. It was the second time this season where the Chiefs fought back from a 14-point deficit to start the fourth quarter and ended up winning. They are the only team in the league to do that through last week on the 2016 schedule.The Chiefs results have been pumped up by their edge in the turnover ratio. They are plus-14 on takeaways/giveaways, the No. 1 team in the league. They have forced 22 turnovers and given opponents eight fumbles and interceptions, and have scored 72 points off those takeaways.Its important that you believe you can do that (force turnovers) and you practice it, said Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. It probably goes just the same in reverse. You practice it, you do well in practice and then you go into a game and if you have some success with it you can build on it. The guys practice it. The coaches harp on it and the players take a lot of pride in it.K.C.s ball-hawking skills have certainly drawn the attention of the Buccaneers.When you watch the tape on these guys, especially their red-zone tape, wow, said Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter. Inside the 20, they really close it down on you. Theyre very aggressive with their hands, they get a lot of balls that they get popped up in the air, and somebody else might catch it. These guys are impressive.The most impressive offensive player in the game is Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans, who enters the week ranked No. 6 among NFL receivers with 811 yards and fifth with 59 receptions. No other NFL receiver has been targeted more than Evans this season as his 108 targets have been 31 percent of Tampa Bays attempts.Mike is just a superstar, said Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston. His best traits are his ability to go attack the ball, his very sure hands and his competiveness. He always finds a way to get open. My job is to give him a catchable ball. Anywhere I throw it around him hes going to catch it.In his second season as the leader of the Bucs offense, Winston is coming off one of his best performances, throwing for 312 yards, completing 69.7 percent of his passes, at an average of 9.5 yards an attempt with two touchdown throws.Jameis showed all sides of his game, Koetter said of his quarterbacks play. He showed his mobility, showed his toughness, showed his arm strength, showed his ability to read defenses, showed his ability to see the field. The touchdown to Freddie Martino (43-yard play), he saw Freddie get behind the safety in the corner on the backside there. That was a great, unscripted play by Jameis.Kansas Citys offense will need a similar performance from Smith against Tampa Bay. After missing a game due to two blows to the head he suffered against Indianapolis, Smith returned last Sunday to play against Carolina and struggled throwing the ball. He missed on three throws to the end zone that could have been touchdowns. Smith averaged just 4.7 yards per attempt and only one completion went for more than 20 yards. He did not throw a touchdown pass, but did have an interception.The resiliency the Chiefs have shown going 17-2 was built last season when they started 1-5, but won 10 straight to make the playoffs, the first team in NFL history to accomplish that feat. That allowed them to survive being down 17-0 in the first half against Carolina.The more you play in those types of games, and it gets down to crunch time, theres never a panic, said Smith. We just go about our business. When we get into a fourth quarter, weve been there before so we can rely on fundamentals and what weve been coached to do.Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been declared out for the second consecutive game.

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. Six games during Round 6, and surprisingly the two matches decided by single-figure margins having gone the distance involved the New Zealand Breakers.Corey Webster was listed in the piece last week as MIA. Fair to say he showed up in Round 6, scoring 37 points during his two outings and hitting the game-winning shot against Perth Wildcats.Melbourne United, meanwhile, continued their slide with a fifth consecutive loss. They parted ways with former MVP point guard Cedric Jackson through the week, and United fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Chris Goulding and debut of new signing Casper Ware.We have become accustomed to having at least one high-scoring game during each round, but we had a different story in Round 6. The highest score was 87, while each winning team posted between 84 and 87 points.So who and what stood out the most during round six?Dynamic DuosEvery side needs a go-to player they can rely upon, but teams become increasingly easy to defend against if they have only the one option. The presence of a one-two punch can make life miserable for defending teams, and we saw two instances during round six.Brisbanes Torrey Craig and Jermaine Beal took over against Sydney Kings in the round-opening game, compiling 34 points, seven rebounds and four assists. The Kings had no answers as the Bullets waltzed away with the win.Then it was the Kings turn in their second match of the round, against Melbourne United, with backcourt buddies Kevin Lisch and Jason Cadee shooting the lights out to post a combined 56 points on 70 percent shooting that included a remarkable 10 three-pointers.Speaking of lights out ...Black OutBrisbane and Cairns Taipans are locked in a tense battle, both seeking their second win of the round; the Bullets lead by eight points with 1:37 to play in the fourth quarter and, BAM, the lights go out.The Bullets had controlled the tempo of the game, but the Taipans were still in with a shot when the conteest was abandoned because the power could not be restored. Angelo Blackson Jersey. Victory was awarded to the Bullets, but the Taipans have lodged a formal protest and the outcome of the game is yet to be confirmed.Running Out of LegsFour of the six victors also led at halftime and three-quartertime.Adelaide and New Zealand went against that trend, leading at the end of every quarter apart from when it really counted.New Zealand led the Taipans by three at the final change before they surrendered the lead with around nine minutes to play, and they were never able to make it back.Adelaide led Illawarra Hawks by two heading into the fourth, before scoring a measly 11 points down the stretch to lose by double-figures.No I in HawksThe Hawks have one of the top-three scoring averages in the league, and they do so with an incredible balance.The Hawks have only three players averaging double-figure points per game (every other team in the league has four, with Melbourne having five) but theyre currently riding a two-game winning streak.The unselfishness within the group, and the willingness to find the open man, is beginning to pay dividends as they have assisted on 65 percent of made baskets in their past two games.We might be seeing the Hawks finding their wings and getting ready for take off.Gazey CamAndrew Gaze is an iconic figure in the NBL.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- It was one of those sequences where everyone in the building could feel a goal coming. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Hats/ .With the Vancouver Canucks trailing 1-0 late in the third period Saturday night, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, along with new linemate Loui Eriksson, played keepaway in the Calgary zone for the majority of a two-minute shift, searching for the tying goal against the weary Flames.(The Sedins) have that ability. Theyre big-game players, and they sense it, Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins said. Their whole careers been that way.They know they have the other team on the ropes and they go after it.Henrik Sedin finally found an opening when he fed the puck between his legs to Eriksson, whose deflected pass in front was batted home by Daniel Sedin with 3:51 left in regulation. Brandon Sutter then capped the night with the only goal of the shootout as Vancouver beat Calgary 2-1.It felt really good at the time, Daniel Sedin said of the shift that saw the Canucks finally break through. They were tired. They were just standing still. It was nice to see it go in.Sutter beat Calgary goalie Chad Johnson through the five-hole on the winner in the fourth round of the shootout after Ryan Miller, who made 25 saves through overtime, stopped all four attempts by the Flames at the other end.We just stuck with it, Sutter said. We bounced back well and that shift that Danny, Hank and Loui put in for two minutes was pretty impressive.Troy Brouwer was credited with the games first goal in the opening period after Eriksson, who was making his Vancouver debut, put the puck into his own net on a delayed penalty. Johnson made 30 stops in his first start for Calgary which remained winless through three games (0-2-1).Calgary opened the scoring at 9:14 of the first after Miller went to the Vancouver bench for an extra attacker with Brouwer about to be penalized for holding. Eriksson circled away from the Flames blue line before throwing a pass towards his own zone from near centre in hopes of finding a teammate.The only problem was the Canucks were in the middle of a line change, and defenceman Erik Gudbranson couldnt get back in time before the puck slid across the goal line in front of a stunned Rogers Arena crowd.Ive never seen anything like that, Brouwer said. It was a bizarre sequence. I have never scored a goal and gone to the box at the same time.The goal was originally credited to Brett Kulak -- which would have been the first of the rookie defensemans NHL career -- but was later given to Brouwer, who now has two on the year.I dont think Ive ever scored a goal where I didnt touch the puck, Brouwer said.In another twist, the goal also went into the stat line as an empty netter because Miller was already off the ice.Its a weird way to catalog it, said Miller. Didnt let one in and dont get the shutout, but to get a win on opening night and help get us started in the right direction, I would have taken anything.For his part, Eriksson said he didnt even realize Miller had left his crease.As soon as I put it up there I saw it was an empty net and I was like: `What is going on here, Eriksson said. It slowly just glided in there. That was a tough one, but we won the game. Thats the important thing.The Flames and Canucks are both coming off disappointing 2015-16 campaigns that saw them miss the playoffs after making the postseason the previous year.But while Calgary is expected to rebound, Vancouver has been picked by many experts to finish at the bottom of the standings.We stuck with our game plan and didnt panic, Daniel Sedin said. I thought overall we played a decent game.Game notes The Canucks were the last of the NHLs 30 teams to open the regular season, while the Flames opened with losses to Edmonton in a home-and-home set. ...

Pakistan 227 for 1 (Hafeez 137*, Azhar 65*) trail Bangladesh 332 (Mominul 80, Imrul 51, Wahab 3-55, Yasir 3-86) by 105 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsComing into the Test series, Mohammad Hafeez had only scored 34 runs in four innings on the tour. Salvador Perez Jersey . He had only bowled in two of those innings after his action had been cleared by the ICC, but had gone wicketless. On the second day in Khulna, however, Hafeez was at the centerstage of a revival not only his own, but of Pakistan.Hafeez had found drift and good control with his newly-remodelled action to pick up a wicket on the first day. On the second day, however, his dismissal of a fluent Soumya Sarkar triggered a Bangladesh collapse that saw the home side lose their last five wickets for 27 runs to be bowled out 20 minutes into the second session. Hafeez, introduced after 19 overs, induced a false shot in his second, breaking a 62-run partnership between Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim that had helped the home side ease past the 300-run mark. The rest succumbed in no time and Bangladesh were stalled to an underwhelming 332.Hafeezs other telling contribution, however, was to come later. Making most of the excellent batting conditions, Hafeez led Pakistans response with his eighth Test century. He may have had a tough last few months, but Hafeezs Test form picked up from where he had left it. With his third century in three Tests, he joined an illustrious group - Zaheer Abbas, Mudassar Nazar, Shoaib Mohammad, Mohammad Yousuf (twice) and Younis Khan - of Pakistan batsmen.Throughout his innings, Hafeez profited off anything bowled short of length. He greeted Mohammad Shahid, the right-arm seamer, to Test cricket with a back-foot punch through cover in the bowlers first over and picked up boundaries off the spinners in a similar manner. If there was a lesson to be learnt from the initial part of Hafeezs innings, it was to avoid bowling on his pads.Bangladeshs bowlers, however, regularly fed Hafeez with what he wanted. All Hafeez had to do was to sit back in the crease and work it around to the leg side. Nine of Hafeezs 12 fours were hit in the region between midwicket and backward square leg. His two sixes, both of Shakib, were pulled over midwicket as well. Surprisingly, only towards the end did Bangladesh think of providing cover in the deep.The other feature of Hafeezs innings was his rotation of strike. After reaching his fifty with a six, Hafeez only once hit a four before he got into the nineties, and yet maintained a healthy strike rate. However, it took him only two balls to jump from 93 to his century as he whipped consecutive boundaries off Rubel Hossain.Hafeezs effortless innings allowed his partners to bat comfortably around him. The new opening pair - Pakistans sixth in last six Tests - of Hafeez and 19-year-old Sami Aslam made smooth progress to bring up the half-century of the partnership in the 12th over. Aslam was dismissed soon after for a 36-ball 20, a review urged by Bangladesh showing he had gloved a turning delivery from Taijul Islam to be caught by Mushfiqur down the leg side.Azhar survived a couple of scares - he was twice dropped by Mushfiqur, the second chance off Shahid injuring the wicketkeepers right hand and forcing him to leave the field - and was unbeaten on 65 after a 177-run unbeaten association with Hafeez. By the end of the day, Pakistan were trailing by 105 runs with nine wickets in hand. The Bangladesh batsmen were guilty of throwing their wickets away. Sarkar, who had scored 33 off 55 balls, top-edged an intended hit down the ground off Hafeez towards cover. Asad Shafiq ran in from cover and completed a diving catch at wide mid-off. Eight balls later, Mushfiqur lobbed an easy catch to cover on 32 as he pushed at a short and turning delivery from Yasir Shah. Yasir added the wicket of Taijul in his next over to make it four wickets in the first session for Pakistan, before Wahab cleaned up the tail immediately after lunch.Pakistan had made a perfect start to the day. Zulfiqar Babar got rid of Shakib in the fourth over of the morning. The batsman charged down the pitch to a flighted delivery but only managed a fine inside edge which was smartly snapped up by a diving Shafiq at leg-slip. Shakib had added only six runs to his overnight score of 19.The only time Pakistan were made to wait in the day was during the Mushfiqur-Sarkar stand. While Mushfiqur soaked up pressure, Sarkar added urgency. Playing his first Test innings, Sarkar showed over-eagerness at the start; his first shot was an aerial drive that landed short of mid-off and he was lucky that that a mistimed slog off Zulfiqar beat the mid-on fielder. But once his nerves settled, Sarkar had no trouble rotating the strike.Using his reach, Sarkar laced an elegant cover drive off Zulfiqar to hit his first Test boundary off his 34th delivery. He went on to hit three more fours through the same area. Zulfiqar leaked runs towards the end of his spell, with the second boundary in his ninth over bringing the 50 of the partnership between Mushfiqur and Sarkar. However, once Hafeez ended the stand, there was no looking back for Pakistan Ian Kennedy Jersey .

NEW YORK -- Walking out of Madison Square Garden onto the chilly New York streets Saturday morning, the only way I could express the spectacle of the League of Legends World Championships semifinal between defending champion SK Telecom T1 and reigning South Korean champion ROX Tigers was with a simple smile. Connor Carrick Jersey .SKT T1 and its prodigy ringleader, Lee Faker Sang-hyeok, had just overcome an unprecedented Miss Fortune curveball ROX threw at them, advancing to next weeks finals in five games by the skin of their teeth.Later that same day, exiting the Garden following Samsung Galaxys thrashing of H2k in the second semifinal (which went half as long as the first), my thoughts were still swimming of the series I had witnessed less than 24 hours earlier.Out of the two semis in New York this weekend, one delivered while the other was a lopsided snoozefest in which the MSG crowd partook in the wave and endless chanting of T-S-M! -- a team, mind you, that didnt even make it out of the group stages -- to appease its boredom from the expected South Korean dominance.Regardless of how trite the semifinals as a whole might have ended, it didnt matter: SKT T1, the Tigers, and Friday night made it all worth it -- and then some.At that point it was clear: we witnessed the best match well see at the World Championships; not only at the 2016 edition, but in the entire legacy of the tournament. ROX and SKT T1 played a best-of-five series that was worthy of being a final in any league in the world.And it was obvious SKT T1 knew that, too. Usually when SK Telecom wins -- even if its a major championship -- you rarely see much reaction on the players faces. To the contrast of the ROX Tigers fun loving, boisterous personalities, SKT T1 is seen as the cold, business-like surgeons that personify the methodical South Korean League of Legends style. However, this time, after SKT T1 completed their comeback from a 2-1 deficit to finally eliminate their greatest rival from the tournament, even Faker broke into a smile, the team converging into a sequence of hugs and laughter as they realized their defense of the Summoners Cup would move onto the final stage in Los Angeles this Saturday.No disrespect to the two teams that took the stage Saturday night -- South Korean club Samsung Galaxy dispatching Europes fiery H2k, 3-0 -- but the real Summoners Cup Final might have been played the night before.After two years without a playoff series at Worlds going the distance, the fans on Friday night received the best possible match to end the drought.In the first game, SKT T1 and Faker flexed their muscles to put the Tigers, the current domestic champion of South Korea, in their place with a lopsided victory.The next two games, though, it would be the Tigers getting the jump on SKT T1 with a never-before-seen Champion pick that shook SKT T1 to its core. In a move that no one -- and if you say you did, please tell me some lottery numbers pronto -- saw coming, the Tigers chose an unprecedented ultra-aggressive composition with two marksmen in the bottom lane at once, in place of using a traditional support. Kang GorillA Beom-hyeon played the AD carry Miss Fortune in the support role while Kim PraY Jong-in settled on his signature Ashe.Imagine the Houston Texans playing J.J. Watt at tight end or a right-handed pitcher suddenly throwing lefty, or the San Antonio Spurs playing five seven-footers. Faker said after the match he had not seen Miss Fortune used in that fashion in any professional match in his career.The risky decision worked like a charm and ROX easily won both early games in commanding fashion, and SKT T1 were not able to adjust to the double-marksmen bot lane for Games 2 and 3.PraY on Ashe would slice the air with the perfect arrow to freeze a target in place, then GorillA would let loose with Miss Fortunes barrage of bullets from her ultimate. The Tigers didnt miss a beat with this strategy, and they accomplished what they had to do to make it work: never stop moving forward. If the paper-thin composition had stopped rolling at any time during the game, SKT T1 could have caught their bearings, defended a bit, and then held on until the late game where SKT T1 would have won in spades. Instead, the Tigers would jab, move to another part of the map, take another large swing at SKT T1, and then follow that up with another brash play. For every one stop SKT T1 made on the map, the Tigers would make five plays to top the failed attempt.Predictably, SKT T1 banned Miss Fortune from play in Games 4 and 5, opening the door for a comeback. SKT T1s rookie jungler Kang Blank Sun-gu lost both games he played in the middle of the series, and he was rotated out for the actual starter of the night, Bae Bengi Seong-woong, the two-time world champion veteran that started the match with a victory before being subbed out.Faker was his usual godly self, which is great for SKT T1. Generally, when Faker plays at that level, SKT T1 wins. Except, against ROX, a team that is just as good as SKT T1 and even better in some aspects, Faker winning his lane every game wasnt enough to bring them victory. It took Bengi, the maligned, often cast-aside jungler, to come in to be the hero that not only SKT T1 needed on the night, but the one they deserved. Bengi returned from his two-game benching in Game 4 with his teams back firmly against the wall. He picked Nidalee, a strong champion to be fair, but one he had never played in his long history as a jungler.Ice in his veins. Bengi played like a man possessed in the final two games, and the Tigers couldnt contain both Faker and Bengi at their best. At the end of the deciding Game 5, when ROX was on its deathbed, SKT T1 didnt let up. Faker and Bengi, the two coldest gunslingers in the wild west, put down one of their greatest rivals, and they embraced as the packed Madison Square Garden crowd appreciated their greatness.Not Fakers greatness -- their greatness.To the Tigers, who never stopped, be it attacking or singing, this is their end. While it remains to be seen what the future holds in the offseason, Friday night, like all the others, they will leave wondering what they need to do rid themselves of the demon that is SK Telecom T1.The only thing left to be said is from ROXs Song Smeb Kyung-ho, who talked about his teammates -- what his friends meant to him before the tournament began:I dont know how to describe the members of the Tigers, said Smeb. Family, friends, I could describe my teammates that way. The things I dont show my family, the things I dont show my friends -- there are those things -- but I can show those things to them. Its hard to describe, but I dont think Ill ever have a team like this again. The people who let me comfortably show the best that I can play. Im so lucky to have come to where I am. I think Im so lucky to have met these teammates. While they are players with tremendous skill, even without their abilities, they are really good people with whom I am fortunate enough to have shared and pursued a dream.No, Smeb. We were lucky. We were lucky to watch you to fight for that dream. Morgan Rielly Jersey .

Hanley Ramirez sent the next pitch out, too, giving the Dodgers a 3-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday and a split the four-game series. "Hanleys home run was the after-party that keeps the celebration going," Gonzalez said. "This win was a big one for us. We needed to split the series and build some positive momentum. Im glad we were able to do that." Gonzalez broke a 1-all tie with a drive to right field off closer Huston Street, and Ramirez hit the next pitch to right-centre. It was the second home run in two days for both players. "Were 2-0 when Hanley and I homer in the same game," Gonzalez said. "We need to keep that trend going. We need to produce in the middle of the lineup." The Dodgers also got solid efforts on the mound. Chris Capuano threw five shutout innings on short rest and a shaky bullpen held up when Padres relievers could not. "A lot of good stuff happened today," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "We got a solid start and clutch hitting from the middle of our lineup. Thats what you want. Thats what you should expect from this club." The Dodgers have been beset by injuries -- Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford and Ted Lilly remain out -- but Mattingly doesnt want to use that as a crutch. He believes the Dodgers are healthy enough now to win consistently. "We are pretty much at full strength," Mattingly said. "There are no excuses at this point. We have the talent in the middle of the order to produce in a big way. Its nice when those thumpers come through for us in the clutch." Street (0-4) has given up 10 home runs in 26 1-3 innings this season. Last year, he allowed two in 39 innings. "Bottom line ... its location," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Huston is a guy who changes speeds. He has impeccable control. This year, at times, its been spotty. We have to get him to the point where hes consistently hitting his spots and making his pitches." Brandon League (3-3) got the last out in the eighth and Kenley Jansen earned his fourth save. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting of late. He is 11 for 22 with six runs, seven RBIs and two homers in his last six games. The Dodgers were in position to win because of Capuano, who volunteered to start on short rest just days after returning from the disabled list. He was healthy, able and up to the task. The left-hander threw five shutout innings, struck out five and walked none. He let only two runners reach scoring position and was pullled before the sixth due to a 75-pitch limit. Willie Henry Jersey. He threw 74. Los Angeles needed someone to start on short rest after playing a doubleheader Wednesday against the New York Yankees. Capuano pitched six shutout innings that day, showing no ill effects from the strained left calf that sidelined him on May 29. "I knew that I had a relatively stress free outing in New York where I threw just 80 pitches," Capuano said. "I knew we were going to need a starter for Sunday and I thought I was the guy to take that responsibility. Given the way my body and my arm felt, the assignment made perfect sense." Capuano has pitched 11 shutout innings since returning from the DL, a run he credits to a mechanical tweak that has improved location and the life on his fastball. Padres starter Andres Cashner had life on most pitches in one of the best starts of his young career. He allowed one run in eight innings. He generated 18 outs on the ground with efficiency uncharacteristic of a strikeout pitcher. He fanned only two, but was rarely challenged by the Dodgers. "The best part about it was the efficiency," Cashner said. "I was able to keep my pitch count down and I threw some good pitches when I was behind in the count." The Dodgers have won two straight, but havent won three in a row since April 7th. Buried in last place, the Dodgers must go on a run to get back in the NL West race. Mattingly knows they need to do it soon. "This is a time where we need to get on a roll and we build some momentum," he said. "Weve seemed to stall in the past. This time, hopefully we wont." NOTES: Kemp went 0 for 5 with four strikeouts Saturday in his first rehab game with Triple-A Albuquerque. He was the DH and will play centre field throughout the rest of his assignment, the final stage of his recovery from a hamstring injury. Its scheduled for three games, but Mattingly said Sunday that the stint could be extended to ensure Kemps timing at the plate is right. OF Scott Van Slyke (shoulder) also is on a rehab assignment with Albuquerque. ... The Padres recalled RHPs Miles Mikolas and Brad Brach from Triple-A Tucson and optioned RHPs Anthony Bass and Brad Boxberger back to their top farm team. The moves were made to add fresh arms to the bullpen, with RHPs Tim Stauffer and Tyson Ross unavailable following extended outings Friday night, when LHP Clayton Richard was removed with an injury in the first inning. ... There is no exact timetable for Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko (groin) to start a minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Lake Elsinore, but manager Bud Black believes it will be sometime next week.

MILWAUKEE -- Draymond Green knew what was coming. Yannick Ngakoue Jersey .Golden State was up by two and had to defend an inbounds pass from the Milwaukee Bucks with 10.1 seconds left on the Warriors side of the court. Green had the assignment of guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks athletic 6-foot-11 forward.Green tipped away the pass, Klay Thompson secured the loose ball before hitting two critical foul shots, and the Warriors held on to beat Milwaukee 124-121 on Saturday night for their seventh straight victory.Thats what Draymond does. He sees the game. He knows whats coming, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. All I saw was that he got a hand on it and Klay ended up with it. Ive seen that before. Draymond is unbelivable in those situations.Kevin Durant scored 33 points, while Thompson had 25 of his 29 in the second half.But they had to hold off a late charge by the Bucks after leading by as much as 14 points. Jabari Parker and Antetokounmpo led a 13-4 run in the fourth quarter that cut it to 122-120 with about 2 1/2 minutes left on Parkers three-point play.The guys fought for 48 minutes, coach Jason Kidd said.Rowdy Bucks fans had designs of an upset of Golden State at the Bradley Center, just like last season. The teams exchanged empty possessions before Greens sparkling defensive effort with 10 seconds left.Once Giannis was down on the block, I already knew what they were running. I was just waiting on them to pass the ball in, Green said.Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, while Parker had 28.Theres no satisfaction, weve got to keep getting better, Antetokounmpo said. As a team were not a finished product yet.TIP-INSWarriors: Durant gave the Warriors a brief scare after he got up slowly after bumping into Parker with 9 minutes left in the third quarter. Trainers appeared to be looking at Durants leg during a timeout, and Durant stayed in the game. He looked fine after running down the lane for a dunk that gave the Warriors an 85-78 lead with 5:58 left in the period. Durant had 25 points in the first half on 8-of-10 shooting. ... Golden State won its third straight road game despite a subpar shooting night for Stephen Curry, who was 1 of 11 from behind the arc. Curry finished with 20 points.Bucks: The Bucks trailed 69-66 at halftime in spite of a season-high offensive output in the first half. It was also a season-high points allowed in the first half for Milwaukee. Antetokounmpo had 16 before halftime, when the Bucks shot 59 percent. A 37-point first quarter was also a season-high for that quarter for the Bucks.FRIENDLY CHALLENGEKerr issued a good-natured, last-minute challenge to Bucks fans before the game.Kerr said that if a fan showed up with a 10-3 shirt, he would give that fan two tickets to a Golden State home game, though there were several other stipulations, too. First and foremost, the Bucks had to win.The Warriors were 10-2 entering Saturday nights game. Kerrs dare was in reference to how Bucks fans confidently wore 24-1 shirts ahead of the Warriors visit last season to Milwaukee on Dec. 12.I am not giving them a plane ticket, or a place to stay, but Ill give (them) a couple tickets to a game, Kerr said.He never had to follow through.QUOTABLEYou feed off that energy. You need that as a team ... Whoever believes in us and wants us to be great, hopefully they can come to the arena and watch us play. -- Antetokounmpo about the energetic fans in the fourth quarter.UP NEXTWarriors: Wrap up a four-game road trip with a visit to the Indiana Pacers on Monday.Bucks: Host Orlando on Monday.

NEW YORK -- No matter how good Jose Fernandez is, the Miami Marlins arent going anywhere this season if they dont start scoring.Yoenis Cespedes homered with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the New York Mets a 2-1 victory over Miami in the first game of a pivotal series between National League playoff contenders Monday night.It was the latest offensive flop for the slumping Marlins, who have totaled two runs while losing three straight games. Theyve dropped five of seven overall and mustered only 20 runs in their last nine.Weve got to keep moving. I thought our guys had good energy today. They were in the game. There wasnt a dragging of the heads or anything like that, manager Don Mattingly said. Were going to come out of that and put some runs on the board.Jose Reyes dashed home to score the tying run in the eighth on a dangerous collision at the plate, and the Mets pulled even with Miami for second place in the NL East. Both teams are 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the leagues second wild card.We know how close we are, and we know what we can accomplish, and were giving everything on the field, Fernandez said after his first scoreless outing on the road this year. Its just unfortunate that its not happening for us right now.Chasing their first postseason berth since 2003, the Marlins havent homered in seven games -- their longest drought since April 2013.Injuries to sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Bour havent helped, but thats not all of it, Mattingly explained.Even before those guys got hurt, it wasnt exactly a juggernaut, he said before the game.In the opener of a four-game set, the Mets appeared overmatched on the mound. New York was shut out for six innings by Fernandez, but Rafael Montero also put up zeros in his first major league start since April 2015.Recalled from Double-A Binghamton before the game, Montero gave up two hits in five innings and worked around a career-high six walks -- most by a Mets starter since May 2014. Still, the Marlins failed to capitalize.It was one of those games that you dont expect to go win, Mets manager Terry Collins said.Rookie left-hander Josh Smoker (1-0) struck out two in a perfect inning against the meat of Miamis struggling lineup for his first major league win.Cespedes, who sat out Sundays loss to Philadelphia after his nagging quadriceps flared up, launched a no-doubt drive to left-center on a 1-1 pitch from Nick Wittgren (4-3).They say one bad pitch can change anything, and it happened, Wittgren said. Graham Knott Jersey. I completely messed up on that pitch and put it right down the middle for him.Miami broke a scoreless tie in the eighth when Ichiro Suzuki and Xavier Scruggs hit consecutive two-out doubles off Addison Reed.Reyes opened the bottom half with a double that scooted by a sliding Suzuki in right field as he tried to cut the ball off. Reyes went to third on a long flyout, then raced to the plate after A.J. Ramos wild pitch.With the count 0-2 on Cespedes, Ramos threw a high fastball that glanced off the mitt of catcher J.T. Realmuto and went to the screen. The speedy Reyes scored with a headfirst dive as Ramos crashed into him while going down to his knees and reaching for Realmutos throw.Reyes rolled around in discomfort for several seconds but stayed in the game.KIDS IN THE HALLThe 42-year-old Suzuki had two hits, increasing his career total to 3,011 and passing Hall of Famer Wade Boggs for 27th place in major league history.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: RHP Andrew Cashner (finger blister) is scheduled to start Friday at Cleveland after he was scratched Sunday. If he cant go, Cashner would likely be put on the disabled list and replaced again by LHP Justin Nicolino, Mattingly said. ... 2B Derek Dietrich (bruised right knee), on a rehab assignment at Double-A Jacksonville, is expected to come off the DL in Cleveland on Saturday, the first day hes eligible. ...

SS Asdrubal Cabrera (left knee) struck out as a pinch-hitter to end the seventh.ROSTER MOVEMiami added a fresh arm to the bullpen by recalling right-hander Austin Brice from Triple-A New Orleans for his second stint with the big club, both this month. Nicolino, who started Sunday and threw 101 pitches in a 3-1 loss to San Diego, was optioned to the Zephyrs.UP NEXTMarlins RHP Tom Koehler (9-9, 3.85 ERA) pitches Tuesday night against rookie RHP Seth Lugo (1-2, 2.51), set to make his third career start.

SEATTLE -- For much of the season, the Mariners were not quite sure what to expect from Taijuan Walker. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Matt-Moore-Jersey/ .After the hard-throwing right-hander held the Baltimore Orioles to just four hits over his 6 1/3 innings in the Mariners 5-3 victory Thursday night, manager Scott Servais has a better idea.Thats the guy, Servais said. Thats the guy we saw earlier in the year. We just havent seen (him) for a while.Seth Smith had the key hit for the Mariners, a two-run home run in the fifth.Walker (4-6), who was 2-0 in April and 0-5 in May, developed painful tendinitis in his right foot about a month ago. He came out of his June 19 start after five innings and had not started in 10 days.He gave up a solo home run to Hyun Soo Kim in the seventh but that was the only runner to get past first base. He struck out five and walked none.We knew it was going to be a challenge, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said, and he was on top of his game.Walked said he felt the pain in the foot from the opening pitch but sometimes you have to pitch through it. ... I hope it goes away but for now Ill just do my routine in between starts and stay off of it as much as I can.Its a great team win, something we needed.Kims home run allowed the Orioles to set the major league record for most home runs in June with 56. The 1996 Oakland As had the previous record of 55.Chris Tillman (10-2) took the loss, ending his nine-game win streak. He lasted just 4 2/3 innings, his second-shortest outing in 17 starts this season. He gave up four runs and six hits, walking three and striking out three.I never felt like I didnt have it, Tillman said. I mean it was there, it was close. I just wasnt able to make some pitches with the off-speed stuff when I need to.It also was Tillmans first career loss to the Mariners, who traded him to the Orioles in 2006. He is now 7-1 with a 3.55 ERA in 10 career starts against Seattle.Before the game, Servais said he talked to his veteran players about their intensity level and where it needs to go.Nelson Cruz, who had two doubles and scored a run, said, we have to play with a little chip on the shoulder. Its nice see everyone contribute today.Center fielder Leonys Martin displayed his intensity and some leather with a pair of superb defensive plays. In the second, he raced straight back to the warning track, hopped up and stretched over his head to haul in a Mark Trumbo blast.Then in the fourth, Manny Machado lined a shot off the wall in right-center, a yard short from a home run. Martin gathered it quickly and threw to shortstop Ketel Marte, who then fired to first to get Machado rounding the bag too far.Leonys, man, hes bailing me out, Walker said. Couple nice plays.Martin started the Mariners three-run fifth with a one-out single to left. Smith attempted to advance Martin with a bunt but popped it foul. On the next pitch, he roped his seventh home run into the right-field seats.Dae-Ho Lee had two RBIs for the Mariners.The Orioles rallied for two runs in the eighth as Kim and Machado each had RBI singles.Closer Steve Cishek earned a four-out save, his 19th in 23 opportunities.SECOND CHANCECatcher Mike Zunino, the Mariners first-round draft choice in 2012, was called up from Triple-A Tacoma after backup catcher Steve Clevenger broke his hand Wednesday. Zunino struggled in his starting role last season, and the Mariners hope time in the minors helped. From the reports I got, it has been better. Hes a more productive hitter and hes controlling the strike zone better, Servais said. Hell have plenty of opportunities to contribute. Zunino was hitting .282 with 15 home runs and 51 RBIs for Tacoma.NO SECOND LEFTYWith the Orioles placing left-hand reliever T.J. McFarland on the 15-day DL Thursday, that leaves only one lefty on the roster, closer Zach Britton. We havent had a left-hander step forward and seize that (second lefty role), like we hoped, manager Buck Showalter said. We have some guys who could potentially do that, but not a whole lot of experience. Its something everyone is constantly looking for.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: McFarland was placed on the 15-day DL before Thursdays game because of a nagging left knee injury. McFarland will fly to Baltimore Friday to have it examined by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Michael Jacobs, then head to Sarasota, Florida, for rehab.Mariners: The Mariners intend to insert RH Felix Hernandez (strained calf) into the rotation after the All-Star break. The lead-up plan is to have him throw a bullpen session Friday followed by a simulated game then two starts in the minors. ... C Clevenger, who broke a bone in his right hand after being hit by a batted ball Wednesday, will have surgery Friday. He is expected back before seasons end.UP NEXTOrioles: It took 13 starts but RH Kevin Gausman (1-5, 3.93) won his first game in his previous start Saturday against Tampa Bay, a 5-0 decision. He gave up four hits, struck out seven and walked no one in 7 2/3 innings. He is 0-1 with a 2.63 ERA in two career starts against Seattle.Mariners: LHP Wade LeBlanc (0-0, 0.00), acquired in a trade with Toronto on June 21, allowed no runs and just three hits in his Mariners debut last Friday against St. Louis. The seven-year veteran has one career start against the Orioles, 0-0 with a 1.35 ERA. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Mike-Hull-Jersey/ .

Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz were sent to Toronto on Saturday as the Maple Leafs traded defenceman Jesse Blacker and draft picks to the Anaheim Ducks.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Brandon Phillips had to move into the cleanup spot because of an injury on opening day. Hes swinging like he belongs there. The All-Star second baseman drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double on Friday night, and Mike Leake got the better of left-hander Francisco Liriano for the third time this season, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates that tightened the NL Central. The third-place Reds moved to within three games of second-place Pittsburgh. The Pirates lead their season series 6-5. The Reds sent nine batters to the plate for four runs in the fifth off Liriano (9-4), who had his shortest outing of the season. Chris Heiseys infield single drove in the first run, and Phillips double off Justin Wilson made it 5-0. It also gave Phillips 77 RBIs this season, among the best in baseball. "Wow," Phillips said. "My teammates put me in a great situation, and I was able to come through. Its my job to try to drive men in. Ive been doing it all year. Thats what its all about." Phillips excellence with runners on base has helped the Reds get through the loss of cleanup hitter Ryan Ludwick, who tore cartilage in his right shoulder while sliding into base on opening day. "Hes been our RBI clutch man all season," manager Dusty Baker said. "You certainly need a guy like that in the middle of your lineup, because hes going to come up with men on base." Heisey also had a solo homer off Liriano, who is 0-3 in three starts against Leake and the Reds this season. Liriano didnt have much control during his first start in nine days. "One of those days I didnt get any rhythm," Liriano said. "I tried to make good pitches and it didnt work out. Everything was up." Leake (9-4) gave up solo homers to Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen and Russell Martin in the sixth inning. Manny Parra fanned Pedro Alvarez with runners on second and third to end the seventh. Aroldis Chapman struck out two in the ninth while getting his 22nd save in 25 chances. The Ohio River rivals have produced the majors most painful pairings this season. Nineteen batters have been hit by pitches -- the Reds 10 times, the Pirrates nine times -- in their 11 games. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Michael-Thomas-Jersey/. Nobody was hit on Friday, a rare game that didnt leave a mark. The Pirates emerged from the All-Star break with their best record in 37 years. Their 56 wins were their most at the break since the World Series champion Pirates of 1971 had 57 wins. Pittsburghs overriding question: Can it avoid another second-half meltdown and break a two-decade streak of losing? The Reds are trying to duplicate what they did last season, when they went on a surge after the break and ran away to the NL Central title. First, they need to get healthy. Top starter Johnny Cueto, set-up men Sean Marshall and Jonathan Broxton, and Ludwick are still on the disabled list. "Thats a great win to start the second half of the season," Phillips said. "Were playing a great team. Its time to have some fun and wipe out the mistakes of the first half." Heisey took over in left field when Ludwick got hurt, then pulled his right hamstring and missed nearly two months. His solo shot on Friday gave him three homers since his return. Shin-Soo Choo singled during Cincinnatis four-run fifth, extending his hitting streak to 13 games, matching his career high. Phillips decisive double came a few hours after a magazine released an interview with the All-Star second baseman in which he said hes still "scarred" by the Reds decision to give Joey Votto a 10-year, $225 million extension in 2012 while he was in tough negotiations for an extension of his own. Votto said he understood Phillips opinion and appreciated his honesty. NOTES: Pirates 2B Neil Walker started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.
