Orioles rally past Mariners 8-7 for 7th straight victory

BALTIMORE (AP) — During a seven-game winning streak that's turned around their season, the Baltimore Orioles have found all sorts of ways to come out on top.
Their latest victory featured an impressive <a href="http://www.rcracer.com.au/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=175050">http://www.rcracer.com.au/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=175050 comeback, four home runs and a very timely replay challenge.
Welington Castillo went 4 for 4 with a homer and three RBIs, Jonathan Schoop singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and Baltimore beat the Seattle Mariners 8-7 on Wednesday for a three-game sweep.
Less than 24 hours after subduing the Mariners behind a sensational pitching performance by Dylan Bundy, the Orioles called upon their power-laden <a href="http://www.clubwww1.com/dating/member/blog_post_view.php?postId=3196">http://www.clubwww1.com/dating/member/blog_post_view.php?postId=3196 lineup to offset a poor start by Ubaldo Jimenez.
"At this time we've been able to dial up what was needed on a given day," manager Buck Showalter said. "I think we kind of know it's, 'OK, what do we need to do tonight to win?'"
Schoop, Trey Mancini and Craig Gentry went deep for the Orioles, whose seven-game run is a season high. In this one, Baltimore fell behind 6-2 in the third inning before coming back.
Mitch Haniger homered and hit two doubles for Seattle, which completed an arduous 12-game East Coast trip with five straight defeats. After winning two of three in Tampa Bay and Atlanta, the Mariners went 1-2 at Yankee Stadium and came up empty against the sizzling Orioles.
While Baltimore has been finding ways to win, the Mariners are doing the exact opposite.
"There's been different reasons for the losses," manager Scott Servais said. "Some of it's been lack of offense. Today we had plenty of offense. It's been different areas."
After Baltimore went up 7-6 in the sixth on a bases loaded sacrifice fly by Manny Machado, Seattle pulled even in the eighth when Haniger connected off Brad Brach (4-4).
In the bottom half, Castillo singled off <a href="http://www.tennis-motion-connect.com/forum/topic/151990">http://www.tennis-motion-connect.com/forum/topic/151990 Christian Bergman (4-5) and went to second base on a sacrifice bunt before being replaced by pinch-runner Caleb Joseph. Tim Beckham then hit a liner to short, and Joseph was called out on the relay to second. But a replay overturned the call, and Schoop followed an intentional walk to Machado with a single to center off Marc Rzepczynski.
Zach Britton pitched the ninth for his 13th save.
"Everything is working out now," Castillo said. "The pitchers are pitching better. We're hitting better. We're playing defense better."
Mancini hit his 23rd home run and Castillo added an RBI double in the second for a 2-0 lead, but Seattle answered with a six-run third that included a two-run double by Haniger and two-run singles by Mike Zunino and Nelson Cruz, the latter of which ricocheted off second base.
Jimenez was charged with all six runs, but Baltimore's robust offense eventually took him off the hook.

To them, it was validating, gratifying and inspiring.

In a span of 14 seconds -- the time it took Drake to catch the ball, begin his run, make a hard cut to his left, outrace the coverage to the far <a href="http://www.blutbanner.net/forum/read.php?4,80292">http://www.blutbanner.net/forum/read.php?4,80292 sideline, jet upfield and eventually dive across the goal line -- Alabama team physician Norman Waldrop and his colleagues had witnessed technology's impact on college football's most prominent football program.

As Drake was making his mad dash to the end zone, a small 3.8-inch device housed in the back of the running back's shoulder pads captured him sprinting at a top-end speed of 22.05 miles per hour. Drake had never run that fast, not even before the gruesome left-ankle injury he suffered against Ole Miss in October 2014. In fact, no Tide player had reached that velocity in the previous two years.

Dolphins can ill afford to make Kenyan Drake a mere backup in 2017

As expectations for <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/mens-43-majestic-mlb-chicago-cubs-flexbase-collection-white-adam-warren-authentic-jersey-customized-p-111.html">Adam Warren Jersey</a> Jay Ajayi continue to grow following his <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/addison-russell-jersey-c-1_17.html">Addison Russell Jersey</a> record-breaking 2016 campaign, there <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/andre-dawson-jersey-c-1_21.html">Andre Dawson Jersey</a> appears to be fewer opportunities for <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/anthony-rizzo-jersey-c-1_7.html">Anthony Rizzo Authentic Jersey</a> second year running back Kenyan Drake.


Adam Gase has <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/ben-zobrist-jersey-c-1_37.html">Ben Zobrist Youth Jersey</a> expressed his desire to increase Ajayi’s workload to 350 carries in 2017. The additional carries would be a near 35 percent increase from last season’s 260 carries. Ajayi is also a much improved pass catcher which <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/billy-williams-jersey-c-1_27.html">Billy Williams Womens Jersey</a> means he’ll be relied upon on third down as well.


The Dolphins spent a third-round pick on Drake in <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/mens-majestic-mlb-chicago-cubs-2016-mothers-day-flex-base-jersey-white-blank-authentic-jersey-official-p-108.html">Blank Kids Jersey</a> the 2016 NFL draft, but Ajayi is firmly entrenched as the Dolphins’ starting running back.


Gase acknowledges that Drake and Ajayi have different skill <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/carlos-zambrano-jersey-c-1_4.html">Carlos Zambrano Womens Jersey</a> sets. However, getting Drake to be <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/mens-33-majestic-mlb-chicago-cubs-flexbase-collection-white-clayton-richard-authentic-jersey-top-selling-p-30.html">Clayton Richard Authentic Jersey</a> a better overall running back is Gase’s primary objective.


“We got to be ready to go if … Jay [Ajayi], he <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/mens-3-majestic-mlb-chicago-cubs-flexbase-collection-white-david-ross-authentic-jersey-best-cheap-p-242.html">David Ross Youth Jersey</a> takes a lot of hits. He’s basically our workhorse,” Gase said. “The rest of those guys have to be ready to go at the drop of the hat. They have to be able to do everything. For us to have two guys backing Jay up that do have a strength in the passing game for sure.


“But they are good runners. It’s more about <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/ernie-banks-jersey-c-1_10.html">http://www.01streaming.com/ernie-banks-jersey-c-1_10.html getting consistency and understanding the importance of every little detail. Sometimes when you’re a backup, you can lose that, and it takes a professional to do the job right consistently. Really, that’s his [Kenyan Drake’s] biggest challenge is being a consistent guy for <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/greg-maddux-jersey-c-1_19.html">http://www.01streaming.com/greg-maddux-jersey-c-1_19.html us.”


It is evident that the Dolphins view Drake strictly as a backup and return specialist at this juncture, but his talent suggests he should be more involved in the <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/jake-arrieta-jersey-c-1_23.html">http://www.01streaming.com/jake-arrieta-jersey-c-1_23.html offense. If the Dolphins are wise, they’ll find ways to get Ajayi and Drake in the game at the same time this season.


One way to get Drake in the game <a href="http://www.01streaming.com/jason-hammel-jersey-c-1_31.html">http://www.01streaming.com/jason-hammel-jersey-c-1_31.html would be to allow him to be the fourth wide receiver in the offense and place him in the slot in 2×2 alignment. The Dolphins would also be well served placing him in the backfield with Ajayi in a split back formation.


If Gase and offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen would like to get creative, they could also use a three-back formation featuring Drake and MarQueise Gray as the upbacks with Ajayi still in the game as the deep back.

Totti, la Nike convoca i media stranieri ma il capitano rinvia ancora l’annuncio

La Roma lo ha deciso un anno fa, il nuovo <a href="http://www.annoculturacinese.it/">http://www.annoculturacinese.it/ ds Monchi lo ha ribadito: il 28 maggio si chiuderà la carriera da calciatore di Francesco Totti. Non c’è più dubbio, i tifosi hanno già riempito l’Olimpico per la gara col Genoa, eppure continua a mancare qualcosa. La parola di Totti. Il capitano prende tempo, non ce la fa a dirlo. O non vuole perché ha ancora dei dubbi? Il giallo continua e diventa un caso mondiale, scrive “Il Tempo”. La Nike, infatti, aveva organizzato un media-day internazionale per lo scorso 26 aprile, il giorno del lancio degli scarpini «Tiempo Totti X Roma» alla vigilia del derby. Lo <a href="http://www.cerfim.it/">http://www.cerfim.it/ sponsor tecnico ha convocato in Italia una quindicina di testate internazionali, tra cui quattro quotidiani (ad esempio lo spagnolo Marca e l’inglese Guardian), altrettante televisioni (Espn e un’emittente tedesca), siti (Sport Bible) e blog vari, che avrebbero dovuto intervistare Totti insieme ad altri tre media selezionati in Italia. Un piano comunicato alla Roma e ai giornalisti stranieri, con tanto di biglietti aerei prenotati dalla Nike. Il tutto era stato pensato prima dell’inizio della stagione e programmato appositamente per i giorni precedenti al derby di ritorno. Ma Francesco, vista la delicatezza del momento e il fiume di domande sul suo ritiro dal calcio a cui avrebbe dovuto rispondere, ha deciso di <a href="http://www.nuovenike.it/">http://www.nuovenike.it/ annullare le interviste un paio di settimane prima dell’evento. «Non se ne fa più nulla, Totti non vuole parlare» si sono sentiti dire nelle varie redazioni nel mondo. Tra stupore, proteste, delusione e qualche viaggio da rimborsare. Fra i media prescelti da Nike c’era anche la rivista Rolling Stone, che aveva affidato a Sandro Veronesi un’intervista da pubblicare in tutte le sue edizioni mondiali qualche giorno prima di Roma-Genoa.

«Mi hanno chiamato – conferma lo scrittore – e ho dato la mia disponibilità. Poi è <a href="http://www.wsystems.it/">http://www.wsystems.it/ stata annullata, ma non so cosa sia successo». Alla fine il 26 aprile solo Mediaset e Roma Tv hanno potuto partecipare all’evento, che la società avrebbe voluto ospitare al Roma Store di via del Corso mentre Nike ha poi deciso di allestire una boutique in piazza San <a href="http://www.adidasscarpe.it/">adidas scarpe</a> Lorenzo in Lucina. La società si aspettava che comunque quel giorno Francesco avrebbe quantomeno detto: «Giocherò il mio ultimo derby», dando quindi in prima persona l’ufficialità dell’imminente fine della carriera. E invece Totti non solo ha glissato, ma non è uscito allo scoperto neppure dopo le successive parole di Monchi, datate 3 maggio. «Dillo tu», «no ditelo voi», alla fine è toccato al neo dirigente spagnolo prendere in mano una patata bollentissima. Dubbi non ce ne sono più, eppure Totti continua a prendere tempo. «So solo che domenica arriva a Roma la Juve – ha scritto su Twitter tre giorni fa – il resto verrà dopo e ci sarà tempo per parlarne». Ha in mente una conferenza stampa, con inviti estesi a tutti, ma non ha ancora fissato la data, tantomeno deciso cosa dire e in che <a href="http://www.utinam.it">scarpe hogan scontate</a> termini. Il futuro da dirigente lo spaventa e va definito meglio il nuovo ruolo prima di arrendersi a un qualcosa che sperava di rinviare in eterno: l’addio al campo, la sua vita per 25 anni. L’attesa continua, almeno un po’. E il mondo intero deve farsene una ragione.

Cincinnati Bengals 2017: LB Kevin Minter team’s best offseason addition

The free-agency period has been good one way <a href="http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/get-2017-brand-new-evan-mathis-69-jersey-cheap.html">http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/get-2017-brand-new-evan-mathis-69-jersey-cheap.html or another for every NFL team. Hence, it’s time to take a look at the positives in our newest series for End Zone Score. Which newcomer to the club was the franchise’s best offseason move and why? We got things started with the 2016 last-place teams in the eight divisions. You can get caught up on the entire series by clicking right here. We are <a href="http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/purchase-the-lowly-cheap-josh-mauro-97-jersey.html">http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/purchase-the-lowly-cheap-josh-mauro-97-jersey.html currently looking at the clubs that finished third. And that means the Cincinnati Bengals are in the spotlight.

LB Kevin Minter

This offseason, the team watched a number of notable players either leave via free agency or were given their walking papers. Marvin Lewis’ club lost <a href="http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/get-full-colours-troy-niklas-87-jersey-cheap.html">http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/get-full-colours-troy-niklas-87-jersey-cheap.html left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right guard Kevin Zeitler to the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns, respectively. And defensive tackle Domata Peko left for the Denver Broncos. On the other hand, veteran Rey Maualuga was cut loose by the team. It’s also worth noting that Karlos Dansby (Arizona Cardinals) and Trevor Roach (retired) moved on as well. The former led Cincinnati in tackles in 2016.

Hence the addition of Kevin Minter was basically an essential move when it <a href="http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/ask-for-official-quality-tyvon-branch-27-jersey-cheap.html">http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/ask-for-official-quality-tyvon-branch-27-jersey-cheap.html comes to the linebacking corps. Yes, the team still has Vontaze Burfict (when available) and consistent mike man Vincent Rey. And second-year pros Marquis Flowers and Nick Vigil are still in the mix in terms of the outside spots. But Minter brings a lot more experience to this group. He finished third on the Cardinals with 81 tackles this past season. He also added 3.5 sacks and a pair of passes defensed.

Keep in mind that the Cincinnati Bengals slumped to 21st in the league against the run this past season. Minter hopes to help in this regard in a big way.

Cosa ci possono insegnare le ultime scarpe da corsa della Nike sul futuro dello sport

Le Vaporfly Elite mirano ad abbattere la <a href="http://www.annoculturacinese.it/">air max 95 supreme</a> soglia delle due ore nella maratona — ma fin dove potrà spingersi la tecnica a migliorare le prestazioni atletiche?


La Nike ha da poco annunciato le Vaporfly Elite, il nuovo prototipo di scarpa da corsa per maratoneti. Il modello non sarà messo in vendita o prodotto su larga scala perché progettato esclusivamente per Zersenay Tadese, world record nella mezza maratona, Lelisa Desisa, vincitore di due maratone di Boston e Eliud Kipchoge, medaglia d’oro alle <a href="http://www.annoculturacinese.it/">air max 90 uomo economiche</a> Olimpiadi di Rio. Sebbene ancora lontane dalla vendita al grande pubblico, la tecnologia alla base della progettazione e le aspettative riposte sul miglioramento delle prestazioni degli atleti possono dirci molto sul futuro dell’agonismo.


Le Vaporfly Elite non hanno un bell’aspetto, almeno per tutti coloro che sono abituati alle scarpe più appariscenti della Nike. La loro forma sproporzionata e <a href="http://www.annoculturacinese.it/">scarpe nike air max donna scontate</a> poco lineare salta subito all’occhio, ma la scelta estetica non è altro che il risultato di una calcolata somma di fattori mirata a un unico obiettivo: completare una maratona entro le due ore — poco importa se le scarpe non siano belle in senso classico.


Secondo Tony Bignell – vice presidente del reparto footwear innovation della Nike – le Vaporfly Elite sono la soluzione per abbattere il muro delle due ore, rimasto intatto dal lontano 1906 quando il canadese Billy Sherring scese per la prima volta sotto le tre ore. Le speranze di Bignell ruotano intorno a tre fattori: il peso, in grado di ridurre l’energia nel sollevare il piede dal suolo; l’ammortizzazione, per supportare le ossa e i muscoli; e la propulsione per aumentare la velocità del corridore. Negli anni la ricerca si è interrogata intorno a queste tre semplici variabili, capaci di modificare sensibilmente le prestazioni di un atleta.


I tre corridori testeranno questa primavera i nuovi modelli durante il Breaking2 project, una simulazione di una maratona presso l’autodromo di Monza. Gli organizzatori mettono l’accento sulle capacità della scienza di portare l’uomo ad <a href="http://www.airmaxscarpe.it/">air max 90 donna economiche</a> una condizione che solo 50 anni fa sembrava impossibile. “È una di quelle grandi barriere del potenziale umano” afferma Bignell, “siamo arrivati ad un punto in cui sembra che ci siano le giuste scoperte scientifiche”, continua Matthew Nurse, responsabile di Nike Sports Research Lab.


Ma tutta questa concentrazione sulle innovazioni tecniche spinge a porci una domanda: è sempre l’uomo al centro dell’attività sportiva? O la scienza sta lentamente prendendo il posto della natura?


Sono passati 57 anni dalle Olimpiadi di Roma, la cui maratona fu affrontata e vinta interamente senza scarpe da Abebe Bikila. Il suo gesto, passato alla storia, era allora carico di un senso politico nei confronti dell’oppressione occidentale sull’Africa, ma <a href="http://www.cerfim.it/">nike air max 2017 economiche</a> dimostrò comunque il potere della forza di volontà nel superare i limiti fisici del corpo umano. La fine del flower power però lasciò il posto a figure come Bill Bowerman – fondatore della Nike – sinceramente amante della corsa, ma convinto che la scienza e lo studio delle nuove tecnologie applicate allo sport potessero aiutare l’uomo a spingersi oltre i propri limiti. “Dio determina quanto correrai veloce, io posso aiutare solo con la meccanica” amava ripetere.


A partire dagli anni Settanta, lo sport ha cercato di infondere sempre più spettacolo all’interno delle performance degli atleti. Spesso è l’atleta ha contribuire allo spettacolo agonistico, ma sempre di più ci si confronta anche con la realtà del doping all’interno <a href="http://www.pedemontanalombarda.it/">air max donna</a> degli eventi sportivi — come è accaduto alle ultime Olimpiadi con lo scandalo russo. I margini di miglioramento per l’essere umano si assottigliano, mentre le soluzioni per pompare le prestazioni aumentano esponenzialmente. Rifiutare o abbracciare questo inevitabile cambiamento?


All’inizio del 2016 la Delaware North – concessionaria sportiva americana – ha rilasciato un documento di 50 pagine dal titolo The Future of Sports.
