 OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Kick returner Devin Hester has been cut by the Baltimore Ravens after the four-time Pro Bowl star struggled in his first season with the team.Signed as a free agent following offseason toe surgery, Hester returned only 25 punts and fumbled four times.The 34-year-old Hester often let the ball drop instead of making a fair catch. After he failed to field a punt early in Monday nights game against New England, the ball was downed at the 1-yard line and the Patriots got a safety on the next play.He averaged 7.2 yards per punt return, taking only two more than 20 yards. He averaged 24.5 yards per kickoff return but fumbled once.Ravens coach John Harbaugh attributed Hesters early season struggle to nagging injuries, but the one-time standout kicker returner never showed the form that made him a star with Chicago and Atlanta.Hester was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2014. He has an NFL-record 20 touchdowns on kick returns.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Josh Jones Packers Jersey.

Jamaal Williams Packers Jersey.S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. DENVER -- Chad Bettis held his right fist aloft for a moment as the ovation from the crowd washed over him. He then tapped his chest and pointed toward the sky.Wow, the right-hander said, his immediate reaction after his best-ever performance.Bettis threw a two-hitter for his first career complete game, Carlos Gonzalez hit a grand slam as part of a six-run third and the Colorado Rockies beat the slumping San Francisco Giants 6-0 on Monday.Bettis (12-7) was perfect until Eduardo Nunez singled with two outs in the fifth inning. He struck out seven and walked none.After getting Angel Pagan on a grounder to end the game, he was almost in disbelief. The cheers were great. The hugs from teammates, too. Same with the water over the head.Its something thats once in a lifetime, Bettis said, before adding, hopefully, it occurs a little bit more.San Francisco intentionally walked Nolan Arenado to face Gonzalez in the third. Gonzalez lined a fastball from Matt Moore over the fence in right-center for his second grand slam of the season.Gonzalez understood the move. Arenado is one of the top run-producers in the league and the player nicknamed Cargo is in a funk.They took their chances. Didnt work, Gonzalez said. Good for us, bad for them.An erratic Moore (2-4 with Giants, 9-11 overall) allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings -- his shortest outing of the season. He walked four and threw two wild pitches.I have to be a ton better than that, Moore said.Moore, who was acquired from Tampa Bay on July 31, had trouble with his release point in the third. He walked the first two batters of the inning, including Bettis when the pitcher tried to put down a bunt. That paved the way to the decisive inning.Two batters after Gonzalezs drive, Nick Hundley hit a solo homer to give the Rockies a 6-0 lead.The Giants had the best record in baseball at the All-Star break, but things have unraveled. Theyve gone a major league-worst 16-31 since then, lost their lead in the NL West and are now trying to hang on to a wild-card spot.Its time for us to wake up here, Giaants manager Bruce Bochy said.dddddddddddd We are better than this.Bettis was stellar in the best outing of his career, getting 15 groundball outs. He surrendered a leadoff double to Trevor Brown in the sixth, but worked his way out of the jam.The 27-year-old Bettis called this his best game in terms of feel for his pitches. He fell behind leadoff hitter Denard Span 3-0 to start the game, before getting him to ground, and was in command the rest of the way.He could throw any pitch for a strike at any time, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. That was outstanding by Chad.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: C Buster Posey received a day off after spending 13 innings behind the plate Sunday during a loss in Chicago against the Cubs. Ive got to keep an eye on these guys and keep them fresh, Bochy said.Rockies: OF Charlie Blackmon was out of the lineup for a third straight game with tightness in his lower back. ... Weiss isnt ruling out the return of rookie SS Trevor Story (torn ligament in left thumb) before the end of the season. Story has been on the DL since Aug. 2. If that happens, great, Weiss said. ... OF Ryan Raburn left the game in the sixth with a bruised left foot.A GRAND TIMEIt was Gonzalezs sixth grand slam with the Rockies, tying him with Dante Bichette and Andres Galarraga for second-most in team history, according to the Rockies. Todd Helton leads with seven.POWER STRUGGLEPart of the problem for the Giants has been a lack of power, with just 36 homers in the second half. Some of their better long ball hitters -- Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Posey -- have gone a combined 243 at bats without leaving the yard.I cant explain it for you, Bochy said. Hopefully, that means well hit a few from this point on.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (11-9, 4.06 ERA) is 1-1 with a 2.30 ERA in two starts against Colorado.Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (5-5, 3.43 ERA) has allowed three or less runs in 12 of his 15 starts.

 EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern coach Chris Collins loved the way his team played in the first half Saturday against DePaul.The Wildcats were efficient on offense as they raced out to a big lead.He wasnt so fond of the ending.Northwestern built a 36-point halftime lead before DePaul outscored the Wildcats 46-26 in a foul-ridden second half as reserves took the court.The ball was moving. We were sharing it. With the score, we did not play as well in the second half, Collins said. Give DePaul credit. A lot of it had to do with them. They kept fighting.Scottie Lindsey scored 19 points and Vic Law had 16 as Northwestern beat DePaul 80-64.Gavin Skelly added 15 points and Sanjay Lumpkin had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Wildcats (6-2), who have won three straight.Derrick Wood scored 15 points and Joe Hanel and Billy Garrett Jr. added 11 apiece for DePaul, which saw its three-game winning streak end. The Blue Demons (4-2) shot just 33 percent from the field and went 2 for 20 from beyond the arc.Severe disappointment, DePaul coach Dave Leitao said. Our performance today, I have to go back a long way to be a part of a first half like that.The Wildcats had little trouble despite losing their starting center earlier in the week.

Numbers Game examines the deal that sees Michael Del Zotto and Kevin Klein switch places. The Predators Get: D Michael Del Zotto. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A former Vanderbilt football player who encouraged his teammates to rape an unconscious female student was sentenced Friday to 17 years in prison under a law requiring aggravated rape convicts to serve 100 percent of their time behind bars.After the hearing, prosecutors said they hoped the sentences handed down would send a message that people who commit these types of crimes on campus will be held accountable.Victims should know that there are people on their side -- whether police, prosecutors or judges- Assistant District Attorney Roger Moore said.Thats what I would like to see taken away from this -- that justice is going to be served, Moore said.Surveillance video showed Brandon Vandenburg helping to carry the woman into his dorm room, where testimony showed he handed out condoms to three of his teammates and egged them on. The 23-year-old former player also took cellphone videos of the June 2013 dorm room rape and emailed them to friends in California while the crime was ongoing.He was found guilty in 2015 but that verdict was overturned after lawyers learned that the jury foreman had not revealed that he had been a victim of statutory rape. Vandenburg was convicted again in June, on five counts of aggravated rape, two counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of unlawful photography.He faced a sentence of 15 to 25 years in prison, and his victim had asked for the maximum punishment.The woman, whom Vandenburg had begun dating shortly before the attack, did not appear in court Friday, but a prosecutor read her statement to Davidson County Criminal Courtt Judge Monte Watkins.ddddddddddddPlease do not use my absence as an excuse for leniency, as it in no way diminishes the profound and insidious impact of Mr. Vandenburg on me and my life, she wrote. I still ask that he receive the full sentence allowed under the law for orchestrating a sustained 30-minute gang rape against me, a defenseless woman who trusted him. The minimum sentence is not enough for what this man did to me.Vandenburg, already in jail since his second conviction, was also added to the state sex offender registry.The Associated Press does not normally identify victims of rape or sexual assault. The woman, who has since graduated from Vanderbilt and is pursuing a Ph.D. at another school, has tried to preserve her anonymity despite being forced to testify at multiple trials.Vandenburg apologized to her Friday. He told Judge Watkins that he was ashamed of what he had done and blamed it on alcohol.My judgment was severely impaired, and Im sad for everyone involved, Vandenburg said.The judge reiterated that this has been one of the saddest cases he has ever heard. He said Vandenburg abused the womans trust in the man she was dating. But for him, it would not have happened, Watkins said.Cory Batey, Vandenburgs former teammate, was convicted in a separate retrial and sentenced to 15 years.The cases of two other former teammates facing rape and other charges -- Jaborian Tip McKenzie and Brandon Banks, who remain out on bond -- have yet to be resolved.

 England v Pakistan, 1992Pakistan 2, England 1 Only DRS and Twitter could have made this series any more explosive and entertaining than it was. Pakistan distilled the essence of an entire existence through the five Tests: rowdily led, obscenely gifted, as likely to implode as explode upon the opposition. The headline theme was Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis reverse swing, which perforated an obdurate England side led by the obdurate Graham Gooch. The close finish in the second Test at Lords was the highlight, but there was enough in every other Test to merit a book: umpiring dust-ups, tabloid hounding, player antipathy and revenge (for Englands World Cup final loss earlier that year). It only warrants a footnote that it was thought to be the most lucrative series in England until then.Australia v West Indies, 1992-93West Indies 2, Australia 1 There was one great Test in this series, of course, the fourth, in Adelaide, which West Indies won by one run. But there was so much else besides - primarily that the contest happened at just the right moment, one team on the way down meeting another on the way up. West Indies took it but Australias dominance over the first half was a rehearsal for their wresting of the crown in the Caribbean a couple of years later. The series turned, fittingly, on the arrival of Brian Lara and his resounding 277 in the New Years Test in Sydney. Shane Warne, not as loudly, was also arriving, but looming over a starry cast was the moody brilliance of Curtly Ambrose, the man most responsible for West Indies win. As Tim May put it: He was hunting us down.England v South Africa, 1998 England 2, South Africa 1 A stupendous heist or a long drawn-out choke? Either way, Englands win merely made a great series more dramatic. South Africa were not the best side in the world and were already thought of as rigid automatons. Yet only Australia were definitively better. England? At best they were less bad than they had been for a while. They were made to follow on in two successive Tests and could conceivably have lost every one of the five. For the manner of their triumph, it was apt that Mike Atherton was the leading scorer from either side, dragging England away from lost causes to improbable non-defeats. The leading wicket-taker was Allan Donald, and it was the electric duel between the two at Trent Bridge that formed the centrepiece of a classic. The umpiring, Javed Akhtars, notoriously, was bad enough to spice it further; so bad that the next summer, technology would embed itself in adjudication. England v West Indies, 2000England 3, West Indies 1 Any of three successive West Indian visits to England, in 1991, 1995 and 2000, could be picked. The last wins out for just how cockamamie crazy it was. West Indies were in fatal decline. They had not won a Test outside the Caribbean since February 1997 and had lost ten consecutively away from home. At Edgbaston they won by an innings, inside three days. Once they lost the next, a thrilling match at Lords, they imploded spectacularly. Darren Gough, Andy Caddick, Craig White and Dominic Cork made for an eccentric yet effective attack. Caddick took four wickets in one mental over at Headingley, where West Indies 61 was not even their lowest total of the series. The Test lasted two days. By the time they rocked home at The Oval, England had imbued history to proceedings, securing the Wisden Trophy for the first time in 27 years. It was not the best cricket but it was unmissable.South Africa v England, 2004-05England 2, South Africa 1 The last great non-Ashes five-Test series was the last genuine one (Englands tour to the Caribbean in 2009 only became five Tests after one was abandoned). Michael Vaughans alchemy had forged a formidable England side, now slap-bang in the middle of a golden phase. South Africa were in transition, debuting both Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers. But they were at home, where, since readmission, they had lost only two of 20 series, and those to Australia. It was genuinely impossible to pick a winner. That England eventually scraped through had much to do with Andrew Strauss and the pace attack, which, even with a misfiring Steve Harmison, had developed into a wonderfully varied and incisive one. It was the least celebrated of them, Matthew Hoggard, who played the decisive hand late in the series, in the fourth Test at the Wanderers. His 12 wickets, seven expertly swung out on the final day, saw England home with barely any time to spare. NFL Jerseys Store. It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline.

NFL Jerseys Discount. MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. NEW YORK -- Former two-division titleholder Mikey Garcia returned from a two-and-a-half-year layoff looking sharp.Garcia scored four knockdowns en route to a punishing, fifth-round knockout of former featherweight titleholder Elio Rojas, who was coming off a 23-month layoff, in a junior welterweight fight on Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.The fight, which was the co-feature of featherweight titlist Leo Santa Cruzs defense against Carl Frampton, was Garcias first since he outpointed Juan Carlos Burgos in defense of a junior lightweight world title on Jan. 25, 2014.I think it was a very good performance, Garcia said. Even though Ive been out for two-and-a-half years, people havent forgotten about me. I did miss [boxing], but the time off helped me regain that fire.Garcia, a former featherweight titlist, wound up in the long layoff because of a protracted legal battle over his contract with former promoter Top Rank, with whom he was unhappy despite being on the verge of his first seven-figure purse and a strong push from the company. The case was settled a few months ago, and Garcia became a free agent, which enabled him to return to face Rojas on a one-fight deal with promoter Lou DiBella and Showtime.Considering the layoff, Garcia looked dialed in from the outset in an explosive performance. Referee Eddie Claudio appeared to miss a knockdown in the first round, when Garcia landed a right hand to the body and Rojas went down to the mat. Claudio, however, ruled it a slip.In the third round, Garcia scored two big knockdowns that were unmistakable. He drilled Rojas with a chopping right hand that sent him to the canvas midway through the round and landed another right hand on the button moments later. That dropped Rojas again.Garcia (35-0, 29 KOs), 28, of Riverside, California, continued to paste Rojas (24-3, 14 KOs), 33, of the Dominican Republic, with shots in the fourth round, eliciting chats from the crowd of Mikey! Mikey!In the fifth round, Garcia planted Rojas face-first with a left hand, then dropped him with a right uppercut-left hook combination. Rojas, fighting for only the second time in four years, beat the count, but Claudio waved it off at 2 minutes, 2 seconds.One of the reasons Garcia, who might go down to lightweight to pursue a title shot, looked as sharp as he did was probably that he stayed in his brother and trainer Robert Garcias gym throughout the layoff, sparring with many of the talented fighters who work there.I think its too soon to make an assessment [on where Im at], but I do feel just as good [as before the layoff], Garcia said.Harrison KOs Rabchenko in eliminatorDetroit junior middleweight Tony Harrison moved a step closer to a world title shot with a ninth-round knockout of plodding Sergey Rabchenko, who beforehand called the fight the most important of his career but did not fight that way.Harrison (24-1, 20 KOs) dominated the lackluster fight until landing a massive right hand in the ninth round, which sent Rabchenko (27-2, 20 KOs) backward and to a knee. He beat the count, and referee Arthur Mercante gave him a long look but elected to stop the fight at 1 minute, 18 seconds.This is definitely my biggest win ever. Im thankful to my team for getting me ready, Harrison said. I was luring him to sleep. I kept jabbing and ended up in the corner. My trainer told me that I would have the right hand behind the jab, and thats what happened.Im a finisher. I had him hurt, and I said to the ref, You better not let him go. I knew I had him beat.With the win -- in a fight the crowd booed because of the lack of action -- Harrison earned the No. 2 position in a sanctioning bodys rankings to put him in position for an eventual shot against world titleholder Jermall Charlo, whose immediate mandatory fight against Julian J Rock Williams is slated to take place this fall.A focused Tony Harrison can beat anybody at 154 pounds, Harrison said. Now its on to [the winner of] Jermall Charlo and Julian Williams. Im in the catbird seat.Harrison, 25, was sharp with his jab, which he kept in the slower Rabchenkos face as he piled up points throughout the fight. Former two-division titleholder Ricky Hatton, the British star, trains Rabchenko, 30, a former European champion from Belarus, and was animated in his corner. Even so, nothing worked, as Rabchenko generally threw one punch at a time and rarely connected with authority.I didnt throw enough punches, Rabchenko said. I kept relying on my defense and didnt attack enough. I was looking for one shot, and it was difficult to do it against Tony Harrison with one punch. The ref did a great job with the stoppage. My health is first and foremost. The health of any fighter is the most important thing. I knew I couldnt continue.Harrison won his third fight in a row since an upset, ninth-round, knockout loss to Willie Nelson last July.ddddddddddddelterweight Paulie Malignaggi (36-7, 7 KOs) outpointed longtime neighborhood pal Gabriel Tito Bracero (24-3, 5 KOs) in a fight for the symbolic Brooklyn title belt.It was a fight years in the making, and the Brooklyn crowd cheered both in the fight between two 35-year-olds near the end of their careers. The fighters kissed each other on the cheek after the final bell in a show of respect.Malignaggi, a former welterweight and junior welterweight world titleholder, used his superior jab to control the fight. He won 98-92, 98-92 and 96-94. ESPN.com had Malignaggi winning 97-93.I knew Bracero was a counter-puncher like myself?.? I was just trying to be the sharper counter-puncher, Malignaggi said. We both try to set traps, and I just wanted to make him earn any points? that? he got. At the same time, I felt like I had to earn my points. I dictated the fight with pot shots and stepping over.I didnt want to get desperate. I wanted to force him to get desperate from being behind on the scorecards. I think I did a good job of that.Malignaggi won his third fight in a row since a ninth-round, knockout loss to Danny Garcia in August at Barclays Center.After the fight, Malignaggi took his place ringside to call the Showtime-televised bouts in his role as analyst.Im excited to call the fights tonight, he said. Im a fan before Im a fighter. Im excited to go to work right now. Im going to head to Italy on Tuesday, take a vacation and then think about my future.Philadelphia lightweight Tevin Farmer (22-4-1, 5 KOs) put on a clinic against Ivan Redkach (19-2-1, 15 KOs) in a unanimous decision win that extended his win streak to 15. Farmer started fast and never let up in a crowd-pleasing fight. He was quicker and more accurate with his punches, and he fought well on the inside and outside against Redkach, a former amateur standout from Ukraine now based in Los Angeles.The judges scored the fight 99-89, 98-90 and 98-90. ESPN.com also had Farmer winning 97-93.Im proud of my performance tonight. I worked hard in camp, and my team did a great job getting me ready, Farmer said. I was very confident that I would be victorious as long as I executed the game plan, and thats what I did.I want a world title. Im going to go back to 130 pounds, and I feel like Im ready for a title shot. If I have to fight an eliminator I will. I wont back down from any challenge.Farmer was sharp with his right hands to the head and left uppercuts. But he landed a bad low blow that sent Redkach, 30, to the mat in the ninth round and was warned for the infraction. In the ninth round, however, it was Redkach, 1-2-1 in his last four bouts, who lost a point when referee Arthur Mercante docked him for head-butting the 25-year-old Farmer, who has not lost since an eighth-round knockout in 2012 to Jose Pedraza, who went on to win a junior lightweight world title.I beat him down, Farmer said. I was the more experienced fighter, and I came in with more rounds and with better opponents on my resume.Brooklyn featherweight Amanda Serrano (29-1-1, 22 KOs) knocked out Calixta Silgado (14-7-3, 9 KOs), of Colombia, in the first round to retain her womens world title for the first time. Serrano dropped her with a body shot, and referee Benjy Esteves called off the fight at 1 minute, 40 seconds.Middleweight Conrad Cummings (10-0-1, 4 KOs), of Northern Ireland, won a unanimous decision in a hard-fought slugfest with Clevelands Dante Moore (9-2-2, 4 KOs). The judges scored the fight 59-53, 58-54 and 58-54. Moore was docked a point for spitting out his mouthpiece in the sixth round. He lost his mouthpiece several times during the fight.Junior welterweight Josh Taylor (6-0, 6 KOs), of Scotland, knocked out Evincii Dixon (7-15-1, 2 KOs), of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in the second round. He knocked Dixon down with a left hand, and though he finished the round, the fight was called off after the second round.South Korean junior welterweight Min-Wook Kim (16-1, 12 KOs), trained by Jose Santa Cruz, father of Leo Santa Cruz, destroyed Louis Cruz (11-2, 5 KOs), of Bronx, New York, dropping him three times in the opening round for the knockout victory.Cruz was coming off an eight-round decision loss, but Kim took him out viciously by dropping him with clean right hands all three times. After the third knockdown, referee Eddie Claudio waved off the fight at 2 minutes, 33 seconds.Huntington Park, California, featherweight Jose Gomez (8-0, 3 KOs) dropped Josh Crespo (6-4-3, 2 KOs), of New Haven, Connecticut, in the first round. Even though he beat the count, Crespo was in no shape to go on, and referee Arthur Mercante waved off the bout at 2 minutes, 31 seconds.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Brock Turner, the former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexually assaulting a young woman on campus, was handed a package by guards as he exited a California jail on Friday after serving half of his six-month sentence: A big packet of hate mail.Turners early release for good behavior was the latest turn in a case that sparked a widespread outcry by many who believed he was given preferential treatment and too light of a sentence for the January 2015 assault. For hours after his pre-dawn release from the Santa Clara County jail, about 200 people demonstrated outside, calling for the judge in the case to resign.Wearing a wrinkled dress shirt, Turner walked with his head down and didnt say a word as he made his way through a gauntlet of television camera lights and into a waiting SUV. The 21-year-old intends to live with his parents near Dayton, Ohio, where he is required to register for life as a sex offender.There, about a dozen protesters stood outside the Turners home in Sugarcreek Township, as police watched. One mans hand-lettered sign said Let only pain & misery fall upon those who rape their fellow person.Turner was convicted of assaulting the woman near a trash bin after they drank heavily at a fraternity party. The woman had passed out and Turner was on top of her when confronted by two graduate students passing by on bicycles. They chased and tackled him when he tried to flee, holding him on the ground until police arrived.A jury in March found Turner guilty of three felony sexual assault counts. Judge Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky sentenced him to six months in jail, citing the extraordinary circumstances of Turners youth, clean criminal record and other considerations in departing from the minimum sentence of two years in prison. Prosecutors had argued for six years.Turners case exploded on social media and ignited a debate about campus rape and the criminal justice system after the victims 7,200-word letter to Turner that she read in the courtroom during sentencing was published online.I want to show people that one night of drinking can ruin two lives, she wrote. You and me. You are the cause, I am the effect.Following Turners release from jail, Sheriff Laurie Smith said she believed his sentence was too llight.dddddddddddd He should be in prison right now, but hes not in our custody, she told reporters.Smith said jail guards gave Turner a big package of hate mail sent to him over the last three months and that Turner lived in protective custody in jail after receiving threats.She also urged Gov. Jerry Brown to sign a bill passed by California Assembly that would require harsher punishment for the same crime Turner committed. Brown hasnt said whether he will sign it.The law has to be that if you rape someone who is unconscious and intoxicated you go to state prison, she said. And that bill is on the governors desk right now, and were urging the governor to sign it.A well-funded campaign also is underway to recall Persky. The judge voluntarily removed himself from hearing criminal cases, starting next week.But supporters of the recall campaign said that is not enough.We need judges who understand sexual assault and violence against women, Stanford law professor Michele Dauber, a friend of Turners victim and the chair of the recall campaign, said Friday while demonstrating outside the jail. Judge Persky does not.Persky didnt respond to requests for comment Friday and hasnt responded to numerous requests since Turners sentencing. He has launched a campaign website soliciting campaign donations to help retain his seat.California jail inmates with good behavior typically serve half their sentences. Ohio prison officials earlier this month agreed to take over supervision of Turners probation.Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer said Turner has five days to register as a sex offender with his office in Xenia, Ohio, 15 miles east of Dayton. He will have to report to a probation officer for three years and must avoid alcohol and drugs during that time.Fischer said his department will notify Turners neighbors informing them that a convicted sex offender is moving nearby. Turner will be required to register every three months in person at the sheriffs office, reaffirming that he is still living with his parents, the sheriff said.Deputies also will check on Turner without warning to ensure he has not moved without permission from authorities.

 BOSTON -- With 2:31 left to play, Brooklyns Trevor Booker made a layup to cut the Celtics lead to 10 points and Boston coach Brad Stevens pointed at his resting starters and told them to get back on the floor.The Nets had erased most of a 23-point deficit against the Boston backups, and they would make it an eight-point game before Stevens got his first team back in.Its a reminder of how quickly things can turn in this league, Stevens said after his starters preserved a 122-117 victory in the season opener on Wednesday night. I probably will be less likely to leave them in that long if were in a similar scenario. Hopefully we learn from it, and were not.Isaiah Thomas had 25 points and nine assists, Jae Crowder added 21 points and Al Horford pitched in 11 in his Boston debut for the Celtics.Bojan Bogdanovic scored 21 for Brooklyn, including a 3-pointer to make it 120-117 with 47 seconds left. But he missed another 3 with a chance to tie it after Joe Harris intercepted Thomas cross-court pass, and the Celtics were able to hold on.Justin Hamilton came off the bench to score a career-high 19 points and grab 10 rebounds for the Nets.Very pleased that we didnt give up and we kept on fighting, coach Kenny Atkinson said after his debut.The Celtics led 112-89 with 8 minutes to play, and they led by 19 with 5:28 left when Avery Bradley went to the bench to join the rest of the first teamers, who started the quarter there. Brooklyn scored 11 straight points before Stevens decided hed seen enough.Thomas, Crowder, Horford, Bradley and Amir Johnson re-entered the game with an eight-point lead and 2:07 left and did just enough to protect it. Bradley had nine rebounds, the biggest after Hamiltons missed 3-point shot with 15 seconds left on another attempt to tie it.Hamilton gave the credit to the Nets bench for closing the gap.They came in with the energy that we needed to have the whole game, he said.MONEY WELL SPENTHorford added five rebounds and six assists for the Celtics, who signed him during the NBAs offseason spending spree to a four-year, $113 million deal.The Celtics are hoping he will help lead them to an Atlantic Division title this season, one year after they finished eight games behind Toronto with the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.Hes the same the same old Al, Atkinson said, doing the stuff and hitting the big shots.NEWCOMERSCeltics No. 3 overall draft pick Jaylen Brown was pleased to hear that he didnt seem to have any nerves in his NBA debut. Brown scored nine points on 3-for-4 shooting, and he added two blocked shots in 19-plus minutes.How nervous was he?On a scale of 1-10, I was a seven or eight, he said with a smile. You want to have a lot of energy, and its hard to suppress your energy.FIRING AWAYThe Nets shot 44 3-point attempts, making 15. Atkinson said he wanted them to shoot more this season, but that number may be a little more than he planned.Yeah, 44 is a lot, but well look at them, he said. We said we want to take them, but they have to be open 3s.TIP-INSNets: Earlier in the day, Jeremy Lin donated $1 million to Harvard, where he graduated in 2010. The money will be used for undergraduate financial aid and to help renovate the schools basketball arena.Celtics: Injured guard Marcus Smart gave the traditional season-opening thanks to the crowd for the Celtics.UP NEXTNets: Thursday host Indiana. The Nets open their fifth season in Brooklyn.Celtics: Thursday visit Chicago. The Bulls will try to hold onto the citys attention on an off-night for the World Series, where the Cubs are trying to win their first championship since 1908.

That allowed Lewis Hamilton to take provisional pole ahead of the final rcRosberg for more laps in case of a mistake but the German only needed one, crossing in a very impressive 1:14.363 in front of his home crowd, two tenths up on Lewis Hamilton.Speaking about that lap, he said: Yeah it was a great feeling. It was a great lap and not only was it just one lap that I had but I also had extra fuel to make sure I had another shot if a mistake or something happpens.ddddddddddddSo I had fuel for three laps so that was some more time in hand there. So that was a really satisfying lap.Rosberg admits he has never experienced anything similar to the issue he experienced in the final session, which saw him loose control of his throttle pedal as he entered Hockenheims stadium section.It was frustrating at the time because it was a quick lap and I managed to lose it just two corners from the end, in a way that Ive never experienced before. It was definitely tough in that moment and I also knew that I had to put extra fuel for the last run to be able to do three laps, just to have a bit of a contingency plan in case it didnt quite work out.

 LOS ANGELES -- The Arizona Diamondbacks biggest offseason acquisition is set to make his first appearance against the team he represented for three seasons and helped win three successive division championships.Right-hander Zack Greinke, who spurned the Los Angeles Dodgers as a free agent to sign a six-year contract worth $206.5 million, will pitch against his former teammates Monday evening when the Diamondbacks begin a three-game series at Dodger Stadium.From 2013 through 2015 with the Dodgers, Greinke won 51 games and compiled a 2.30 ERA. He also finished among the top 10 for the National Leagues Cy Young Award all three seasons, including second last year to the Chicago Cubs Jake Arrieta, while winning two Gold Gloves and a Silver Slugger award.Last year, Greinke led the major leagues with a 1.66 ERA, collected a career-high 19 wins and started for the NL in the All-Star Game. In 222 2/3 innings, the 12-year veteran conceded just 40 walks and 148 hits while amassing 200 strikeouts.The Diamondbacks hoped Greinke and other offseason acquisitions as Shelby Miller and Jean Segura could combine with Paul Goldschmidt, A.J. Pollock, David Peralta and Yasmany Tomas to ignite a surge toward playoff contention. Instead, Arizona is battling the San Diego Padres to stay out of last place in the NL West.Greinke (12-4) leads the Diamondbacks in wins, but his ERA has ballooned to 4.17, his worst since 2010. He has already allowed 140 hits while striking out just 114. Away from Phoenixs Chase Field, Greinke owns seven victories but a 5.50 ERA.Last week, the Dodgers expressed interest in re-acquiring Greinke after he cleared revocable waivers, Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal reported, as the right-handers departure in January further depleted Los Angeles thin rotation. However, Rosenthal reported that discussions did not proceed very far, and USA Todays Bob Nightengale added that the Diamondbacks would not trade Greinke during the offseason.Opposing Greinke on Monday will be the veteran signed to replace him, right-hander Kenta Maeda(13-8, 3.37 ERA). After eight seasons with the Hiroshima Carp in Japans Central League, Maeda signed an eight-year contract worth $25 million in January, one month after Greinke joined the Diamondbacks.In his final season in Japan, Maeda led the Central League with 15 victories, compiled a 2.09 ERA and limited opposing hitters to a .222 average. That performance enabled Maeda to win the Sawamura Award as the best pitcher in Nippon Professional Baseball for the second time.Maeda will pitch with a full week of rest after his last start. The 28-year-old rookie collected six strikeouts in five innings Aug. 29 against the Colorado Rockies, but he allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in an 8-1 loss. Those runs were the result of a Nick Hundley two-run homer.That one pitch, a slider, was definitely a mistake, Maeda told MLB.com through an interpreter regarding Hundleys homer. Overall, I thought I pitched pretty well. I always want to pitch longer, but that one pitch led to the team losing.Before that defeat, Maeda won his previous four starts and earned victories in five successive decisions since July 23. During that stretch, he allowed 28 hits and only seven walks in 33 2/3 innings while getting 30 strikeouts, compiling a 3.74 ERA and allowing permitting hitters to bat just .226. However, Maeda also conceded six home runs in that span. Cheap NHL Jerseys China.

 ARLINGTON, Texas -- Except for one big game in Texas, the Cleveland Indians have struggled to score in the past week since leaving home.I dont group it into weeks because its not productive, manager Terry Francona said. I think every game is totally different.The Indians still have a 4 1/2-game lead in the AL Central after losing three of four at the AL-best Texas Rangers, the latest by a 2-1 score on Sunday.Danny Salazar (11-5) matched his season high with 10 strikeouts and allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings, but the Indians managed only one run in six innings against Derek Holland. The Texas lefty also benefited from two highlight-reel catches by left fielder Carlos Gomez.Clevelands only win at Texas was 12-1 on Friday night. In the Indians other six games the past week, they scored a total of four runs. They had three consecutive games with one run at Oakland -- winning one of them -- before the series at Texas, where they were shut out in the games before and after the 12-run outburst.Every time we go home, its like were a different team. Not to say we cant win on the road, but I wouldnt be surprised to see some high-scoring games from us when we get home, second baseman Jason Kipnis said. Its just the way things are going. Guys are still confident. ... Were still up 4 1/2, and you cant take that lightly, how hard it is to catch us once we start playing our game.The Indians play their next 10 games at home, starting against Minnesota, the ALs worst team. Second-place Detroit has lost its last two games, to the Los Angeles Angels.In 11 games at home before going to Oakland and Texas, the Indians went 8-3 to increase their division lead from 3 1/2 games to seven.Holland (6-6) allowed a run and four hits with five strikeouts in six innings, the same as in his return from the disabled list five days earlier in a loss at Cincinnati after missing two months with shoulder inflammation.Ian Desmond and Jonathan Lucroy each had an RBI single for Texas, which has an 8 1/2-game lead over Houston and Seattle after both those AL West rivals lost Sunday.Cleveland loaded the bases in the ninth against closer Sam Dyson, who allowing a single and then consecutive one-out walks before striking out pinch-hitter Tyler Naquin and retiring Abraham Almonte on a fly ball to end it. It was Dysons 29th save in 33 chances.In the sixth, with two Indians still on base and two outs after Kipnis RBI single cut the margin to 2-1, Mike Napoli hit a hard liner to left. Gomez was sprinting back and reaching over his head when he made the catch.That was an inning after Gomez made a leaping catch with his glove extended as his body crashed into the left-field wall to rob Jose Ramirez of a hit.He was the hero today, Holland said. I may have pitched a fairly good game ... those are two big, huge catches.RUN AFTER REVIEWDesmonds run-scoring single in the second came on the first pitch after Elvis Andrus had been initially called out on a stolen base. The Rangers challenged and Andrus, who went to second while Nomar Mazara struck out, was ruled safe on a replay review that extended the inning.NOTHING EXTRAThe Indians finished with six hits, and the Rangers had five. All of them were singles. It was only the third game in the 22-year history of the Rangers ballpark that didnt include any extra-base hits. The previous one was against the Angels three years ago.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Just before the deep fly Gomez caught, Ramirez fouled a pitch off his right leg, just above his knee. ... LF Brandon Guyer was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning. It was the third time in this series and MLB-high 28th time this season he was plunked.Rangers: There was a short delay in the fourth inning when team photographer Kelly Gavin was struck on the back of the head by a foul ball hit into the photographers well at the far end of the Rangers dugout.

 The San Jose Sharks are glad to be back home for an extended period. Perhaps it will get their struggling offense going.San Jose opens a five-game homestand and a stretch of seven of eight at SAP Center on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils, who are dealing with their own problems trying to generate offense.The Sharks are coming off a 3-3-0 road trip -- their longest of the season. Things started well with 10 goals scored in wins over the Washington Capitals, Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning. They followed by tallying only four goals in losses to the Carolina Hurricanes, St. Louis Blues and Arizona Coyotes.Joe Pavelski, who had two goals and two assists on the trip, said playing at home for the first time since Nov. 5 and for a long period will be good for the team.(Well) spend a little bit of time (at home) and try to create that home-ice advantage, he told the CSN Bay Area website. We havent had much time there. Theres a little bit of disconnect from the fans just because weve been gone.We want to get back there, we want to get the crowd going where we score a goal and the place erupts on your side. Those are good feelings.That was certainly the case early in the season when San Jose won four in a row, but open this homestand trying to avoid a third consecutive loss in northern California.San Jose (9-8-1) is near the top of the Pacific Division despite having one of the more lackluster offensive units in the league. San Jose has scored just 41 goals so far, one more than New Jersey.Pavelski is tied with Brent Burns for the team lead with six goals, but Burns has failed to score in four straight. Joe Thornton has only two goals and none in his last five games, and Patrick Marleau has scored four goals with one coming in his past eight games. Thornton and Marleau have combined for 16 goals, including five game-winners, and 18 assists versus the Devils.I think all the guys in here have high expectations as far as how we want to play. I think guys put a lot of pressure on themselves, Sharks defenseman Paul Martin told CSN Bay Area.Another player whos struggled is Tomas Hertl, who set career highs with 21 goals and 25 assists last season, but has only four goals and five assists through 17 games. Hertl suffered an injury against the Blues, and may need knee surgery.The Devils are 1-2-0 on their four-game road trip and will be trying to leave California with a win. After defeating the Dallas Stars in overtime on Tuesday, New Jersey dropped a one-goal decision to the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday before falling 4-2 to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.New Jersey (9-5-3) has failed to score more than 197 goals in each of the last four seasons and is on pace for about 172 this season. The addition of Taylor Hall from the Edmonton Oilers was meant to address the lack of goal scoring, but a knee injury is expected to sideline him until mid-December. Michael Cammalleri (three goals) remains day-to-day for personal reasons.With Hall and Cammalleri out, that leaves journeyman P.A. Parenteau as the teams leading goal scorer with five. Defenseman Damon Severson also leads the Devils with nine assists and 12 points.We need more performances from the players who are here, Devils coach John Hynes said after the loss to the Kings.One player Hynes could be targeting with that statement is Kyle Palmieri. Playing in his first season with the Devils in 2015-16, Palmieri had career bests with 30 goals and 27 assists in 82 games. Hes slumped to three goals and four assists in 17 games, and played just 15 shifts against Los Angeles -- his fewest this season.New Jersey also has failed to score a power-play goal in its last eight games, going 0-for-26 in that stretch.On the bright side, New Jersey has won two straight at SAP Center by a combined 8-2 score. That includes a 30-save shutout by Keith Kinkaid in the Devils 3-0 win on March 10.Kinkaid, who has not played since Nov. 11, is 2-0-1 with a 1.65 goals-against average as Cory Schneiders backup.

Cheap NFL Jerseys Store. Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. Tallahassee, Fla. - Theres a pattern developing within the Florida basketball team that has caught the attention of Coach Mike White.And not in a good way.Florida State may not be a Top 10-ranked team like Gonzaga and Duke were, but the Seminoles are very good and figure to have some highlight moments in the Atlantic Coast Conference on the way to playing in the fun part of March. On Sunday, White watched his 21st-ranked Gators play some terrific first-half defense against an excellent offensive crew, only to watch FSU discover its scoring rhythm - much like Duke and Gonzaga did - in the second half on the way to a 83-78 victory in front of 10,028 at Tucker Center.Seminoles guard Dwayne Bacon did a number on the Gators (7-3) for the second year in a row, scoring 16 of his game-high 24 points in the second half. Forward Terrance Mann had 16 points to go with eight rebounds for the Seminoles (10-1), who shot 55.2 percent after intermission, making nine of their first 12 shots to open up a double-digit cushion that withstood a late Gators rush.UF sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen let fly a 3-point shot with 45 seconds left that could have tied the game, but the ball caromed off the rim and into the hands of Mann, who hit two free throws at the other end. The closest Florida, led by Kasey Hills career-high 21 points and 16 from Allen, got after that was within four.FSU was just too big, too good and leading by too much to finish the job.Its been a common theme for us defensively in all three of our losses. Were just not the same, for whatever reason, White said of UFs second-half generosity on the defensive end. Weve got to maintain that energy level, intensity level and communication level when were [defending] away from our bench.Florida States 55 percent and 47 second-half points fell right in line with Dukes 60.9 percent and 43 points last Tuesday, as well as Gonzagas 60.7 and 45 over Thanksgiving weekend, respectively.Bacon, who scored 24 last year in Gainesville when he gutted the Gators with the game-winning jumper with just over four seasons left, hit seven of his 11 shots after halftime. UF shot the ball well enough to be in the game (46.8 percent), but some much needed possessions went scoreless and the Seminoles - whether it was Mann or 7-foot-1, 305-pound Michael Ojo (8 points, 7 rebounds) or 6-10 freshman and NBA lottery-pick-in-waiting Jonathan Issac (9 points, 6 rebounds) - made it tough to get second-chance opportunities off the offensive glass.Its very hard to go over those guys, Hill said.UF guard Kasey Hill scored a career-high 21 points, including this hard drive and finish at the rim.The Gators stayed in the game mostly by going around those guys. The Seminoles love to press, which makes them beatable off the dribble and in the open floor with quick guards like Hill and Allen. Florida was able to get to the rim and finish some tough, challenged shots, with Hill making 10 of his 15 field-goal tries and Allen going 6-for-13.But eveen 6-11, 250-pound center John Egbunu (8 points, 5 rebounds) was dwarfed by FSUs live athletic bodies, getting just four shots off in the post.dddddddddddd Forward Devin Robinson (8 points, 5 rebounds) and Justin Leon (7 points, 1 rebound) were pretty much neutralized, too. Reserve swingman Canyon Barry went 2-for-10 from the floor before leaving the game with a nasty gash in his head that needed 13 stitches to close. Backup bigs Kevarrius Hayes and Keith Stone had a field goal each.You have to credit their length and discipline on the interior, their physicality, White said. They have the ability to throw different [big] guys at you.It would have been nice to draw the FSU bigs away from the basket with some 3-point shots, but UF went just four of 16 from deep.I thought in the second half we played with a little bit more poise and executed better, FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said after his program registered its first victory over a ranked non-conference opponent since beat UF on Dec. 7, 2008. We had some moments where we were indecisive but had quick recoveries. This is type of game that helped grow up a little bit.Developments in first half had a lot to do with the circumstances of the second. Allen appeared in a groove in the first half, but picked up two fouls barely three minutes into the game. White let Allen, his best offensive player, sit for about three and a half minutes before putting him back in the game. UF led at the time 12-11.I didnt want to go into the half struggling offensively, White said. KeVaughn is a not a big foul-trouble guy. I didnt foresee him picking up that third.Florida led 20-17 when Allen, indeed, got his third foul at the 8:40 mark - and it came when he fouled Braian Angola-Rodas on a made 3-point shot. Allen headed to the bench and Angola-Rodas to the free-throw line, where he converted the four-point play and gave the Seminoles the lead and a huge jolt of momentum.FSU led 36-34 at the break and used a 16-6 run early in the second half, with Bacon scoring seven of those points, to ride out to a 12-point lead with 14 minutes to go, a sequence that included the first technical foul called against White in his two UF seasons.Thirteen minutes later, though, Allen had a shot at his game-tying 3.It looked good, he said.Instead, the Gators have their first two-game losing streak of the season and likely are headed out of the Top 25. The Seminoles, meanwhile, very well could be taking UFs place.So what?Its not what we earned this week or last week. None of that matters, White said. Its about learning from this game, the Duke game, the North Florida game [before that]. Im sure Coach Hamilton is talking about the same thing. Its such a long season. Obviously, we really, really wanted this one, but its a process. A journey. We have to get better tomorrow.Second-half defense figures to come up.

 FC Dallas is not only looking to win for the first time in Avaya Stadium when it visits San Jose on Friday, its also looking to score its initial goal in the facilitys second season as the home pitch of the Earthquakes.FC Dallas and the Earthquakes played to a pair of scoreless draws in first two matches between the two teams in the stadium, once last season and on May 28. Something has to give this time around.San Jose (5-5-7, 22 points) is unbeaten at home this season but is currently enduring a six-match winless streak thats seen them drop to eighth in the 10-team Western Conference.FC Dallas, which sits atop the Western Conference table with 34 points and an overall record of 10-5-4, has won its past two MLS matches. It is 5-1-2 over its past eight matches since losing three straight contests in late April and early May.In FC Dallas 4-0 win against Orlando City on July 4, two of the sides goals were scored by its center backs, Walker Zimmerman and Matt Hedges. The duo has also been stout in its normal defensive role by not allowing a shot on goal for the past two games and is a huge part of FC Dallas shutout streak that extends past 200 minutes.San Jose has allowed just 20 goals this season, four less than FC Dallas, and has been hard to score on. Three of the past four meetings between the Earthquakes and FC Dallas have been scoreless draws.If we can have a solid defensive performance we can beat FC Dallas, Earthquakes forward Quincy Amarikwa said. When you play a group of guys a number of times, you get an idea of want their tendencies are and how they like to play and where they are the most dangerous. I think that plays into our hands as a defense.After missing almost a month on duty for the United States mens national team, forward Chris Wondolowski, the Earthquakes leading scorer, returned to the fold in last weeks loss in Chicago.
