SEATTLE —The Seattle Mariners restocked their bullpen by recalling
right-hander Stephen Pryor and selecting righty Carter Capps from Triple-A
Tacoma. Alan Page Jersey . The Mariners made the
moves on Tuesday before their game against Toronto. Seattle was down two
pitchers in the bullpen after trades Monday night that sent Steve Delabar to
Toronto and Brandon League to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Additionally, the
Mariners optioned outfielder Carlos Peguero to Tacoma and added Eric Thames to
the roster. Thames was acquired from Toronto for Delabar. Pryor was on a rehab
stint with Tacoma after suffering a groin strain with Seattle in June. Capps had
made just on appearance with Tacoma after spending most of the season at
Double-A Jackson. Capps struck out three of four batters he faced Monday night
for Tacoma. He had 19 saves and a 1.26 ERA with Jackson. Chad Greenway Womens Jersey . Puyol will
undergo surgery on his right knee Saturday and is expected to be sidelined for
six weeks. The 34-year-old centre back will miss Barcelonas Copa del Rey final
against Athletic Bilbao on May 25 and looks set to be left out of Euro 2012,
which starts on June 8. Paul Krause Jersey .Y. —Two-time major
champion Svetlana Kuznetsova and top-20 players Kaia Kanepi and Flavia Pennetta
have pulled out of the U. http://www.nflnikeminnesotavikings.com/jared-allen-jerseys
. On Wednesday, they had four with big games. Daniel Murphy homered twice,
Scott Hairston hit a grand slam and David Wright drove in five runs to lead the
Mets to a 17-1 rout of the Chicago Cubs. Adrian Peterson Jersey . Canucks assistant
general manager Laurence Gilman declined to discuss the veteran goaltenders
situation specifically, but said general manager Mike Gillis has fielded several
calls from other GMs interested in Vancouver players. Chuck Foreman Jersey . On Wednesday, they had
four with big games. Daniel Murphy homered twice, Scott Hairston hit a grand
slam and David Wright drove in five runs to lead the Mets to a 17-1 rout of the
Chicago Cubs. NEW YORK —Once Nick Swisher and the New York Yankees kept
Mark Trumbo in the park—barely, too—they were ready to rally.
Mark Teixeira homered twice and drove in five runs, Canadian Russell Martin hit
a go-ahead single and the Yankees overcame yet another homer by Trumbo to storm
past the Los Angeles Angels 6-5 Friday night. Teixeiras three-run shot and
Martins two-out single in the eighth inning overcame the Angels 5-2 edge. The
Yankees, with the best record in the majors, returned from the all-star break
and won for the fifth time in six games. “Its a new start,” Teixeira said. “The
first half really doesnt mean anything.” Trumbo homered in his fifth straight
game against the Yankees. His three-run shot in the seventh made him the first
Yankees opponent to homer five games in a row since Albert Belle in 1994, STATS
LLC said. Harold Baines in 1984-85 is the only other player to do that against
New York, the Yankees said in citing the Elias Sports Bureau. “Yeah? I guess,
pretty cool,” Trumbo said. “But if it wasnt enough to get a win, its just a
novelty.” Trumbo nearly hit another homer, but his bid for a two-run drive to
right field was caught by a leaping Swisher at the top of the wall in the
eighth. Trumbo is 11 for 22 with five homers and 10 RBIs against New York this
season. “If he doesnt make that catch, we probably dont get back in the game,”
Teixeira said. The Angels had two runners caught stealing, then Howie Kendrick
was thrown out at second base to end the game. He tried to advance when a pitch
from Rafael Soriano bounced away from Martin, but the catcher made a strong peg
for the final out. The Yankees broke loose after C.J. Wilson was pulled
following a sharp seven-inning start. Scott Downs (1-1) relieved to begin the
eighth with an 0.30 ERA this season. Derek Jeter led off with a double,
Curtis Granderson walked and Teixeira hit the first homer off Downs this year.
Teixeiras tying shot was his 17th home run—he has 36 career multihomer games,
three this season. Downs retired the next two batters and left after walking
Swisher. Kevin Jepsen relieved and, after pinch-runner Dewayne Wise stole second
and pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez was intentionally walked, Martin sliced a single to
right. Martin, from Chelsea, Que., ended an 0-for-30 slump last Saturday in his
last game before the all-star break. “I think its immportant for him,” Yankees
manager Joe Girardi said. Kyle Rudolph Jersey. “I always talk about how
players want to feel theyre contributing and he had a great night tonight.
“Threw three guys out, the game-winning hit,” he said. Soriano wound up with his
21st save in 22 chances. Chad Qualls (1-0) got his first win with the Yankees.
Trumbo was picked by Yankees star Robinson Cano for the home run derby in Kansas
City this week and finished among the leaders. The Angels slugger did equally
fine on a humid evening in the Bronx, sending a shot into the left-centre field
bleachers against Hiroki Kuroda for his 23rd homer and a 4-2 lead. Albert Pujols
singled to start the Angels seventh-inning rally, then hit a ground-rule double
in the eighth that made it 5-2. He stumbled coming around first base and hobbled
into second, prompting Angels manager Mike Scioscia and a trainer to check on
him. Pujols stayed in the game. Scioscia said Pujols earlier fouled a ball off
his foot and “felt just a little jolt or something” coming around the bag. “He
should be OK,” Scioscia said. Angels rookie Mike Trout, leading the league in
hitting and steals, doubled and singled, stole two bases and scored a run. A
prep star in New Jersey who worked out for scouts at the old and new Yankee
Stadium, Trouts favourite player growing up was Jeter. They ate lunch together
at the All-Star game, and Jeter made Trouts family and friends feel welcome in
the 20-year-olds first game at the ballpark—the 20-plus members of the Trout
rooting section sat in Jeters suite. Erick Aybar also homered for the Angels.
NOTES: Jeter has scored 1,818 runs, two more than Carl Yastrzemski for 16th
place on the career list. ... Cano extended his hitting streak to a season-high
16 games. ... Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (strained left groin) threw a simulated
game. If hes OK, hell start Tuesday night vs. Toronto. Asked his goal for the
second half, the ace said: “Stay healthy.” ... Yankees LHP Andy Pettitte (broken
left leg) rejoined the team after recuperating at home in Texas. Hes targeting
Sept. 1 to be back in the rotation. ... Yankees OF Brett Gardner (right elbow)
is ready to swing in a simulated game Sunday. ... New Brooklyn Nets star Joe
Johnson, who said he didnt play baseball growing up, threw out the first ball
and tossed a soft strike. Nets coach Avery Johnson led the Bleacher Creatures in
the roll call. ’ ’ ’
