RAMA, Ont. Owen Daniels Red Jersey . —Russian
Shahbulat (Sha) Shamhalaev made short work of Mike (The Marine) Richman in their
featherweight tournament semifinal at Bellator 79 on Friday night. Shamhalaev
(10-1) showed quick hands from the start and caught Richman (12-2) with a
counter right that crumpled the American 145-pounder to the canvas. He followed
with a couple of punches before referee Yves Lavigne stepped in at one minute 45
seconds. Richman took his time regaining his feet and was taken to hospital
after the fight. The Russian will meet either Wagnney Fabiano (15-3) or Rad
Martinez (13-2) in the tournament final. They fight Nov. 9 at Bellator 80 in
Hollywood, Fla. Tournament winners in Bellator earn US$100,000 and a title shot.
In a heavyweight semifinal, American Rich (Rare Breed) Hale stopped Thiago (Big
Monster) Santos at 3:31 of the first round. The six-foot-four, 238-pound Hale
was giving up bulk to the six-foot-three, 265-pound Santos and the big Brazilian
charged him with wild throws when the fight started. Hale, moving up from
light-heavyweight, weathered the storm and managed to get the Brazilian to the
ground after the two collided. The fight ended with Santos on his knees, trying
to protect his head as Hale (21-4) punched away from the top. Hale, by virtue of
his fourth straight first-round finish, takes on either Alexander Volkov (17-3)
or Vinicius (Spartan) Queiroz (6-2) next. Santos (11-2) was coming off a painful
victory over Eric Prindle at Bellator 75, a winner by disqualification after
talking an axe kick to the groin. He said he lost a tooth and had several others
loosened by Hale. The mixed martial arts show, Bellators fourth at Casino Rama,
was hit by the earlier withdrawals of Brazilian bantamweight champion Eduardo
(Dudu) Dantas and English welterweight Paul (Semtex) Daley. Dantas was
recovering from an August KO at the hands of Tyson Nam while Daley had visa
issues. The card drew a crowd of 4,200 to the casino north of Toronto but not
everyone was thinking of MMA. “We want hockey,” yelled one fan during a slow
portion of an undercard bout. The ring announcer reminded the crowd several
times that 2,500 gambling machines lay just beyond the doors after the fight
card. Earlier, Douglas (The Phenom) Lima dominated American Jacob (Kobe The
Stunna) Ortiz before stopping him with a vicious attack at the fence with just
10 seconds remaining in a fight contested at a catchweight of 180 pounds. The
American-based Brazilian, who was coming off an April loss to Bellator
welterweight champion Ben Askren, floored the unorthodox Ortiz with a right
early in the fight but couldnt finish him after a length battle on the ground.
Ortiz had little offence and when he attacked, Lima punished him with crisp
strikes. Lima hurt Ortiz with a knee and was pounding away when the second round
ended. Lima (22-5) picked Ortiz apart with his jab in the third, bloodying
Ortizs face under his skunk-like two-tone Mohawk hairdo. The fight eventually
ended after Lima knocked Ortiz (13-4) back into the fence, following up with a
flying knee and a flurry of punches. “The guys got a head made out of bricks,”
said Lima, who outstruck Ortiz 89-19 according to Compustrike. Edmonton
welterweight Ryan (The Real Deal) Ford won a unanimous (29-28, 30-27, 30-37)
decision over iron-chinned American Kyle (Alley Cat) Baker. “In all my 23
fights, hes the toughest guy for sure,” said Ford, who threw everything he could
at Baker but couldnt finish him. Ford (19-4) swarmed Baker from the get-go,
cutting him before the fight was a minute old with some nasty ground-and-pound.
But Baker somehow hung on and survived a pounding at the fence to make it to the
second round after the doctor checked him out. Baker (12-7) took another
pounding to start the second but unbelievably had Ford in trouble on the ground
as the round wore on. The American came out for the third, his face battered and
swollen, and came at Ford, who eventually took him down several times. But Baker
reversed position to mount Ford and then took his back. Ford muscled his way out
to take top position and finished the fight pounding away. According to
Compustrike, Ford had a 48-13 edge in significant strikes over the fight. Baker
was originally scheduled to fight Daley but was switched to face Ford, who has
now won two straight in Bellator. Montreal welterweight Christ (The Beast)
Franck won a split (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) decision over Marcus (Lelo) Aurelio, a
Brazilian fighting out of Vancouver. The bigger Franck (4-0) started the first
two rounds strongly but faded in both as Aurelio (6-2) took control. But Franck
kept pushing in the third, doing enough to stop Aurelios win streak at six.
Montreal lightweight Guillaume (Il Toro) DeLorenzi (10-1) was dominant on the
ground as he choked out American Jonny (The King of Late Night) Carson (10-6) at
4:49 of the first round. Unbeaten Russian heavyweight Vitaly Minakov (9-0)
stopped Vladimir Starcencov (3-1) of Laval., Que., via TKO at 27 seconds of the
second round. Russian lightweight Magomedrasul Khasbulaev (18-5) submitted
American Josh Pulsifier (17-8) via rear naked choke at 3:30 of the first round.
Josh (The Juggernaut) Appelt (8-2) won by TKO over Ed Carpenter (5-4) at 3:20 of
the first round in an all-American heavyweight bout. Wade Smith Jersey . Lee pitched six solid
innings only to lose again as the Philadelphia Phillies fell 6-2 to the Colorado
Rockies on Friday night to drop their fifth straight and 11th in the past 12
games. Arian Foster Jersey . The flags stitched onto
the shirts and caps, and the colours on the leaderboards — American red,
European blue — were enough to produce raw emotion, enormous pressure and
compelling theatre. http://www.nfltexansfansstore.com/nike-glover-quin-Texans-jersey/
. I had never seen him play outside of highlight packages of singular plays, but
on Sunday afternoon I tuned into the Redskins/Giants game from Metlife Stadium,
and you cant help but take notice. J.J. Watt Red Jersey .Y. —The New York
Knicks are close to getting back some sorely needed scoring punch. Derek Newton Jersey . He was right. Correia
pitched seven innings of two-hit ball and Starling Marte hit a two-run triple to
lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Chicago Cubs 3-0 Monday night in a game
that was delayed more than 3 1/2 hours by rain.A month into the 2012 season, the
Blue Jays remain amongst the American Leagues top teams. The teams young core
has continued to develop early on in the season. The Jays have gotten stellar
defence out of Colby Rasmus, highlight reel efforts on both sides from
Brett Lawrie and run production out of J.P. Arencibia, despite an uninspiring
batting average. But the biggest story that has emerged to shape the Jays future
thus far in 2012 has been the big-league debut of 21-year-old Drew Hutchison.
While his earned-run average and WHIP leave a lot to be desired, the young
righty is yet to get hung with a loss. The Jays will likely have to keep
trotting him out every fifth day and hope for him to learn as he goes with
Dustin McGowans health remaining a question mark. Heres a look at some of the
top names in the Jays system through April. Adeiny Hechavarria (SS, 22) Signed
as an International free agent from Cuba (04/13/10). 2012 stats: 27 GP / .283 BA
/ 1 HR / 19 RBI / .744 OPS (Las Vegas, AAA) Future Outlook: After turning heads
in Spring Training, Hechavarria has put up respectable numbers in Vegas. His
defence at short remains exemplary and his RBI totals remain above where many
might have expected them to be just one year ago. His grand slam on April 30
helped keep the 51s hot, amidst a streak of six wins in seven games. Aaron
Sanchez (RHP, 19) Selected by Toronto in the first round of the 2010 MLB Draft.
2012 stats: 3-0, 15 IP, 0.00 ERA, 20K, 0.867 WHIP (Lansing, A) Future Outlook:
Theres something very, very special happening in Lansing right now and it
involves a trio of ace-potential pitchers 20 years of age or younger. Sanchez
has been splitting starts with lefty Justin Nicolino, and in five games the pair
have combined for 30 innings without an earned run. Between the pair and fellow
Lugnuts hurler Noah Syndergaard, the future is very bright. However, with the
trio averaging just three innings per outing, Jays fans will need to be patient
as they develop. Still, Sanchezs low-90s fastball and filthy curve have many
scouts drooling. And just look at that stat line. Travis dArnaud (C, 23)
Acquired from Philadelphia in exchange for Roy Halladay (12/16/09). 2012 stats:
24 AB / .283 BA / 2 HHR / 11 RBI / . Duane Brown Jersey. .776 OPS (Las Vegas, AAA)
Future Outlook: While his stat line does not immediately seem impressive,
dArnaud has performed admirably in making the jump from double to triple-A
ball. In fact, hes just starting to heat up, hitting .381 with a .997 OPS in his
last 10 games (as of May 4). Arencibias early-season struggles may have caused
some concern from Jays fans, but his RBI totals keep him a valuable cog in the
Jays offence, so there will be no rush on the teams part to promote dArnaud.
Anthony Gose (CF, 21) Acquired from Houston in exchange for Brett Wallace
(07/29/10). 2012 stats: 27 GP / .223 BA / 0 HR / 12 RBI / .609 OPS / 9-12 SB-A
(Las Vegas, AAA) Future Outlook: Gose has got to get on base more to be an
effective part of the 51s offence and, eventually, the Jays future. Gose has
struck out 36 times in just 27 games this season including recording
multiple-strikeout games in five of his last 10 contests. Gose is always a
threat to steal, but he cant be much of a threat if he keeps his on-base
percentage at a mere .323. Jake Marisnick (OF, 20) Selected by Toronto in the
third round of the 2009 MLB Draft. 2012 stats: 26 GP / .259 BA / 3 HR / 14 RBI /
.824 OPS (Dunedin, A+) Future Outlook: Marisnick continues to be one of the true
prizes of the Jays system for his five-tool potential. Marisnicks sluggish start
to the year took a leap when he torched Lakeland pitching in the teams April
24-27 series, going 8-for-13. Thanks in large part to that outburst, hes hit
.302 with a .952 OPS over his last 10 games. Best of the Rest: Justin Nicolino
(LHP, 20) – Selected by Toronto in the second round of the 2010 MLB Draft. 2012
stats: 0-0 / 15.0 IP / 0.00 ERA / 17 K / 0.933 WHIP (Lansing, A) Noah
Syndergaard (RHP, 19) – Selected by Toronto in the first round of the 2010 MLB
Draft. 2012 stats: 2-0 / 17.2 IP / 1.53 ERA / 25 K / 1.358 WHIP (Lansing, A)
A.J. Jimenez (C, 22) – Selected by Toronto in the ninth round of the 2008 MLB
Draft. 2012 stats: 20 GP / .278 BA / 2 HR / 8 RBI / .731 OPS (New Hampshire, AA)
Asher Wojciechowski (RHP, 23) – Selected by Toronto in the first round of the
2010 MLB Draft. 2012 stats: 1-0 / 23.1 IP / 3.09 ERA / 15 K / 1.157 WHIP
