ARLINGTON, Texas—All by himself, Ian Kinsler showed why the Texas Rangers can
be so dangerous. Dwight Freeney Jersey . Kinsler got four
hits, scored three runs and stole two bases Thursday night, sending the AL West
leaders past the Oakland Athletics 7-6 for their 11th win in 13 games.
Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and David Murphy each drove in two runs for Texas
in a game that lasted 3 hours, 54 minutes, the Rangers longest nine-inning game
of the season. “We can generate runs in a lot of different ways,” Kinsler said.
“Lately weve been hitting the ball into the gap and driving the ball out of the
ballpark. Tonight we really didnt have that but we were able to generate runs in
another way, stealing bases and taking the extra base whenever we could, and we
were able to push a bunch of runs across.” Texas tied a season high with four
steals. The Rangers, who are third in the American League in home runs (98), had
only two extra-base hits and walked six times. Kinsler got things started with a
leadoff double in the first inning. “Some people call it small ball. I call it
winning baseball,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “Thats just doing what
the game asks you to do. Were starting to get back to that. Were starting to get
free on the basepaths, running, and doing some things. Its winning baseball.
Thats what were doing.” Scott Feldman (2-6), who gave up eight earned runs in 1
2-3 innings when he last faced Oakland on June 4, won despite allowing nine hits
in five innings. Feldman had lost four straight decisions against the As. “I was
telling myself bend but dont break,” Feldman said. “I had already given up the
four runs, so I had to try to limit the damage and keep them there and get our
guys back in there swinging the bats.” Joe Nathan earned his 18th save of the
year. Tyson Ross (2-8) was tagged for five runs and eight hits in four innings.
“Their lineup, one through nine, its one of the best in the big leagues, if not
the best. And any time you put guys on base and give them a free pass, youre
just asking for trouble,” Oakland catcher Derek Norris said. “Unfortunately, we
gave up a few too many walks tonight and they capitalized on it.” Josh Reddick
hit his 18th home run for Oakland. Norris and Cliff Pennington, the eighth- and
ninth-place hitters in the As lineup, connected for consecutive homers in the
third. The Rangers drew four walks and hit three singles during a four-run fifth
that put them ahead 6-4. Leonys Martin drew a leadoff walk and scored on a
single by Elvis Andrus. Reliever Jim Miller walked Josh Hamilton to load the
bases, then walked Adrian Beltre to make it 4-all. With two outs, David Murphy
hit a two-run single. In the sixth, Andrus walked, stole second and later scored
on a sacrifice fly by Beltre for a 7-4 lead. Oakland came back in the seventh
with an RBI single by Yoenis Cespedes and a sacrifice fly by Seth Smith.
Cespedes finished with three hits and drove in two runs. Norris homer was his
second in the majors. Pennington was 2 for 28 before he homered. NOTES: Rangers
starter Derek Holland, on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow fatigue, said
he felt good a day after his first rehabilitation start in Triple-A Round Rock.
Holland threw 38 pitches in three innings. The Rangers plan two more rehab
starts for him, Washington said. ... Washington still has not determined whether
his starting pitcher Saturday against Oakland will be rookie Justin Grimm or
Martin Perez, who made his MLB debut with a two-out relief stint Wednesday
against Detroit. ... After Oakland beat Seattle 2-1 Wednesday with two solo home
runs, the As got their first three runs on solo homers. Andrew Luck Jersey . Condoms and other
contraceptives were previously only dispensed for free to locals holding a
hukou, or a permanent residency permit, through outlets in residential
communities and hospitals. Migrant workers had to pay for them either at stores
or from condom vending machines installed on the citys streets. Robert Mathis Jersey . They flew from New
Jersey to New Orleans, where the two 19-year-olds will be expected to ignite the
turnaround of an NBA franchise before theyre even old enough to participate
fully in the Big Easys renowned night life. http://www.nikeindianapoliscoltsproshop.com/reggie-wayne-jersey
. Hudson has bone spurs in his left ankle and said Saturday he had a cortisone
shot Friday after his attempt to throw in the bullpen “wasnt too good. Andrew Luck Womens Jersey . —Lisa Meldrum
is off to a solid start in her bid to earn an LPGA Tour card. Pat Angerer Jersey . After he finally broke
out as a starting point guard in place of the injured Jose Calderon for the
Toronto Raptors, hes now been shut down with a partially torn left oblique
muscle.Giants Standing Tall The New York Giants are playing with a confidence
that only comes from winning a Super Bowl.  Five weeks into the NFL season, the
Giants have to be considered the team to beat.  I was very skeptical heading
into this past weekends  contest, as Plaxico Burress was not playing.  Burress
was suspended by Giants head coach Tom Coughlin for missing a team meeting two
weeks ago.  I was curious to see if his absence would negatively impact the
Giants offense.  As I was watching the Giants dismantle the Seahawks 44-6, I
couldnt believe how many different players were getting involved offensively in
the Giants game plan! Eight different players caught passes for the Giants, and
the biggest surprise may have been 4th year wide receiver Domenik Hixon.  Coming
into Saturdays game, Hixon had only 94 career receiving yards.  Hixon would have
a career day Sunday, totaling 102 yards and a TD on four receptions – and he
played less than a half (Hixon left the game in the second quarter with an
injury). Wide receiver Sinorice Moss would even contribute his first two TD
receptions of his career in Burresss absence.  In fact, the Giants totaled 342
yards of total offense in the first half alone, the most yards totaled by any
team in the first half of any game this year. Give offensive coordinator Kevin
Gilbride a lot of credit, as no matter what he dialed up in the game, it seemed
to work.  Gilbride was my quarterback coach during my fourth year with the
Giants, and he always had such a good feel for what his quarterback was good at
executing.  Gilbride is so good at game planning because he puts his playmakers
in positions to make plays.  Without Plaxico Burress in the game plan, Gilbride
was able to find production from multiple players, maximizing each mans
individual talent.  The Giants, for example, were able to continuously gash the
Seahawks defense on the ground, as Brandon Jacobs rumbled for 136 yards and two
TDs. All this helped Eli Manning had his most efficient performance of the
season, going 19 of 25 for 267 yards and 2 TDs.  Coughlin must feel much better
knowing that if Burress is ever unable to play, there are several other weapons
that the Giants can take advantage of again.  The Redskins are for Real At 4-1
the Washington Redskins look to be a real contender in the NFC East.  I am
simply amazed at how well Jason Campbell has been able to play so far this
season.  Through five games now, Campbell has yet to throw an interception!  In
fact, the Redskins have only turned the football over one time this year, and
that was a fumbled punt return – the offense remains mistake-free. Clinton
Portis has been magnificent running the football, as the Redskins are currently
the fifth best running team in the NFL (146.6 yards/game). Defensively, the
Redskins have been stout, consistently rising to the occasion week in and out. 
After giving up nine first downs on the Eagles first two drives, the Redskins D
allowed only five more the rest of the game!  The Redskins have been difficult
to run against this year, giving up only 85.4 yards a game.  They gave up only
44 yards on the ground to Dallas in their 26-24-road victory two weeks ago.  The
bottom line is that the Washington Redskins are a completely different team than
what we saw in Week 1, when they looked dismal in a 16-7 loss in New York
against the Giants.  Head coach Jim Zorn has been able to open up the offensive
playbook, as evidenced by Antwan Randel-Els nifty 18-yard touchdown pass to
Chris Cooley this past weekend against the Eagles.  The Redskins have been
playing with a lot more swagger ever since that huge road win in Dallas two
weeks ago, and appear as though they believe they should win each and every
week.  Weve seen the maturation at quarterback in Jaason Campbell, but we have
also witnessed the early growth of Jim Zorn as a head coach.dddddddddddd. There
is no debate right now that the NFC East is the marquee division in the NFL, and
it appears that the Washington Redskins have as good a chance to win it as
anyone. Razed in Arizona The Buffalo Bills took one on the chin this past
weekend, getting blasted 41-17 by the Arizona Cardinals.  Following the defeat,
a lot of people are going to start wondering whether or not the Bills are for
real.  After starting the season 4-0, the Bills were completely overmatched on
the road, as Kurt Warner dissected the Buffalo defense to the tune of 250 yards
and two TDs.  I still firmly believe that the Bills are a very good football
team; I simply think this was a bad game for them.  This was just one of those
games where nothing went right for the Bills.  For starters, they were playing a
good Arizona team that has won five straight games at home.  To make matters
worse, starting quarterback Trent Edwards suffered a concussion on the third
play of the game, and was forced to leave.  The Cardinals kept the Bills on the
field for almost 35 minutes of game time, as they were able to sustain long
scoring drives of 12, 13 and 14 plays.  A lot of people have come up to me and
asked if the Bills perhaps were exposed in this game.  I dont think they were,
since it will be very difficult for opposing teams to rely on so many long
scoring drives to beat the Bills week in and week out.  Converting third downs
is not an easy thing to do in the NFL, and the Cardinals were unbelievable
Sunday, converting nine out of 15.  The Cardinals were simply clicking on all
cylinders offensively against the Bills, and I really believe that the blue
print will be difficult for other teams to duplicate.  The Bills fortunately
have a bye week now, and it couldnt come at a better time.  The Bills need to go
back to the drawing board and get ready for San Diego at home on October 19. 
This break will also give Trent Edwards an opportunity to recover from the
concussion.  The NFL is a difficult league to go through unscathed, and the best
teams are the ones that can bounce back after suffering bad losses. Dont kick it
to Reggie! Do you think anybody will punt to Reggie Bush anymore this season? 
In Monday nights 30-27 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Reggie Bush was a one-man
show as he tied an NFL record by returning two punts for touchdowns.  Whats even
more amazing is that Bush returned both punts for TDs in the second half!  Bush
was able to demonstrate his game-changing speed on both returns, going 71 yards
in third quarter and then 64 yards in the fourth.  It is amazing what type of
impact Bush has been able to have early in his career in New Orleans.  He gets
lots of criticism because he is not a “pure running back”.  Its true that Bush
has yet to find success as a feature back, like most prototype NFL backs that
carry the football between 20-25 times a game.  Instead, head coach Sean Payton
has been able to develop his game plans around Bush, always finding ways for him
to get touches in other ways.  I believe Reggie Bush is the best running back in
the NFL at catching the football, and you will generally see him lining up all
over the field in the Saints offense in order to get involved in the passing
game.  Bush also makes an impact in games in the return phase as well, as was
evidenced Monday night. He not only gives the Saints an advantage in field
possession because of his return skills, but also serves as an emotional spark
to his team with his electrifying returns.  Opposing coaches now need to make a
big decision heading into games versus the Saints: do we kick to Reggie Bush?  I
think the answer is quite simple: heck no. ’ ’ ’
