New York, NY (Sports Network) – Allan Houstons second comeback attempt ended on
Thursday, and his career with the New York Knicks may take on a new role in the
near future. Brian Dawkins Jersey . The sweet-shooting but
oft-injured guard signed back with the Knicks for the second straight preseason
to attempt to make the club. Houston, who is fourth on the Knicks career scoring
list, originally retired in October 2005 with chronic knee pain, and a similar
comeback attempt prior to last season ended due to the injury. “First and
foremost, my family and I would like to thank Knicks president Donnie Walsh and
coach Mike DAntoni for their allowing me the opportunity to be a part of the New
York Knicks organization again,” Houston said in a statement. “Although I was
very excited about potentially joining my teammates this year in uniform, I
believe that the circumstances suggest that I am best suited to serve the team
in a different role. I realize that we often make our own plans in our heart,
but God always has the right plan for us. “I am extremely blessed to have
witnessed a special era in New York Knicks history, and I know basketball fans
everywhere, especially Knick fans, are ready for the return of this franchise.
Hopefully, I serve in being a part of that again,” Houston said. Only franchise
legends Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier and Willis Reed have scored more points
during their regular season careers with New York than Houston, a two-time NBA
All-Star and a member of the Gold medal-winning United States team at the 2000
Summer Olympic Games in Sydney. Also on Thursday, the Knicks announced that they
have exercised the fourth- year option on guard Mardy Collins, and the
third-year option on forward Wilson Chandler. Collins averaged 3.2 points and
1.9 assists per game in 46 games for the Knicks last season, his second in the
league out of Temple. Chandler averaged 7.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 35 games
last season, his rookie campaign out of DePaul. The club also waived swingman
Dan Grunfeld on Thursday. An undrafted free agent out of Stanford, Grunfeld is
the son of current Washington Wizards president, Ernie Grunfeld. The elder
Grunfeld was a part of the Knicks organization for over 17 years as a player
(1982-86), broadcaster (1986-1989), assistant coach (1989-1990) and general
manager (1991-1999).   Willis McGahee Jersey . Sale pitched a

Anthony Gose lifted a fly to right-centre with a man on second in the 10th
inning, Jackson realized right away he would need a little extra effort to catch
this one. Robert Ayers Jersey . England coach Roy
Hodgson revealed details of the unspecified injury, which United manager Alex
Ferguson had not disclosed as his side tried—and failed—to stop Manchester
City winning the Premier League last weekend.Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) –
Vladimir Guerreros second solo home run of the night was the 400th of his career
and broke a tie game in the seventh inning, sending the Los Angeles Angels of
Anaheim to an 8-7 victory over Tampa Bay in the opener of a three-game series.
Kendry Morales also went deep twice and knocked in three runs for LA, which was
coming off a series loss to the Rangers over the weekend. Kevin Jepsen (4-3)
pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win, and Brian Fuentes
survived a late scare to pick up his 32nd save of the season. Jason Bartlett
went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI, falling a single short of the
cycle for the Rays, who have dropped three of four. Ben Zobrist knocked in two
runs, while Carlos Pena added a solo homer in defeat. Neither starter made it
out of the fifth. LAs Sean OSullivan yielded six runs on six hits in 4 2/3
frames, while his counterpart, Matt Garza, was hit for six runs—four earned
—on six hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings. “We had a good offensive day but
Garza didnt pitch the way we know he can,” said Rays manager Joe Maddon. “Vlad
is going to hit home runs, we have to do a better job.” LAs Russ Springer (0-2)
started on the rubber in the seventh and fell behind in the count to Guerrero,
who reached out on an outside pitch and muscled it the other way for a patented
bad-ball home run, breaking the 7-7 tie. “I feel good. My mom and I talked
yesterday and she said only two more home runs (to 400),” said Guerrero. “Im
glad it came when the team really needed it, everybodys happy.” Bartlett had a
chance to complete his cycle in the eighth but struck out to end the inning.
Fuentes entered in the ninth and got two quick outs before Zobrist turned on a
2-2 pitch and sent it deep down the left-field line. Von Miller Elite Jersey. Juan Rivera sprinted
over and had just enough room on the warning track to haul it in while leaning
against the fence, preserving the nail-biter. Evan Longoria doubled in
Carl Crawford in the first and came around to score on a base hit from Zobrist.
Guerrero cut the deficit in half with a leadoff blast in the second, and RBI
singles from Erick Aybar and Chone Figgins later in the frame put LA in front.
Bartlett homered to open the third, and Morales countered with a two-run blast
in the bottom half. Garza couldnt find the strike zone in the fourth, hitting a
batter and walking two others to open the frame. Maicer Izturis hit sacrifice
fly, and Garza was pulled after walking Bobby Abreu to load to bases.
Lance Cormier got out of the mess by inducing a double-play ball off the bat of
Guerrero. Tampa Bay countered with three runs in the fifth. Crawford doubled in
Bartlett and scored on a sac fly from Zobrist. Pena followed with a game-tying
homer. Morales second homer of the night came in the fifth, and Tampa Bay again
tied it in the sixth as Bartlett hit a triple over the head of Abreu in right,
plating Gregg Zaun. Game Notes: Tampa Bay is 1-10 in its last 11 games on the
road in this series…It was the 37th multi-home run game of Guerreros career.
It was Morales fourth, three coming in the last 12 games…Crawford scored twice
and recorded his 53rd steal of the season…Guerrero has a 12-game hitting
streak. With his 400th career HR, Guerrero is now one of only six players in MLB
history with at least 400 home runs and a .320 career batting average. He joins
Jimmie Foxx, Lou Gehrig, Stan Musial, Babe Ruth and Ted Williams.   ’ ’ ’
