The Brandon Wheat Kings are in the market for a new head coach. Andre Johnson Jersey . The team announced on
Tuesday that Cory Clouston would not be returning to the WHL club for the
2012-12 season. A former coach of the National Hockey Leagues Ottawa Senators,
Clouston signed a two year contract with the Wheat Kings last August. “I have
given a great deal of thought to our coaching situation for the upcoming
season,” Brandon Wheat Kings general manager Kelly McCrimmon said in a
statement. “I do not want uncertainty with this important position and as a
result have decided we will not have Cory return next season.  He will perhaps
have opportunities to coach professionally, failing that, we will honor the
second year of his contract.” The Wheat Kings knocked off the Calgary Hitmen in
the opening round of post season play before losing four straight games to the
Edmonton Oil Kings in the Eastern Semi-Finals. No decision has been made on his
replacement. Lestar Jean Jersey . The Grimsby, Ont.,
native stands alone as Canadas most decorated Olympic womens wrestler after
capturing her first silver at Athens 2004 and a bronze at Beijing 2008. “I
promised going into the Olympics I would give everything and the result would
take care of itself,” Verbeek said. Devier Posey Jersey . Canada remained perfect
in the preliminary round with set scores of 25-23, 19-25, 26-24 and 25-20.

on June 22. Kevin Walter Womens Jersey . Jakub Culek
scored the winning goal in the fifth round of the shootout as Rimouski defeated
the visiting Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 5-4 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior
Hockey League action. Brandon Brooks Jersey . Wayne Rooney scored
twice for the second straight match to guide United to victory at Old Trafford
but all the focus was on the pre-match handshake that never happened, inflaming
tensions between Englands two most successful clubs and reviving a racism row
that refuses to go away. NEW YORK —A day after Johan Santana made Mets
history, R.A. Dickey baffled the St. Louis Cardinals in his own way. The
knuckleballer followed up Santanas no-hitter by shutting out St. Louis,
David Wright homered and the New York Mets beat the Cardinals 5-0 on Saturday.
“Its no easy chore to follow Johan,” Dickey said, “I went to bed reminding
myself to bring what I bring and be myself.” What he brought was a fluttering
knuckler that he could throw at speeds from 59 to 80 mph, causing mostly swings
and misses, or softly hit balls that found gloves. Dickey (8-1) gave up seven
hits, struck out nine and walked none in his third career shutout and first
since 2010. The Mets scored three runs in the second, on a mishandled grounder
and two run-scoring groundouts to win for the sixth time in eight games and tie
Miami for second place in the NL East, a game behind Washington. “I think whats
awesome about it is we dont have to explain it. Its organic,” Dickey said. “We
have sustained a level of competition in the midst of a lot of injuries.” The
Mets had two more players hurt Saturday. Outfielder Mike Baxter and reliever
Ramon Ramirez were going on the 15-day disabled list with injuries they
sustained during—or after—Friday nights game. Baxter displaced his right
collarbone where it meets his sternum and tore cartilage on the right side of
his ribcage after plowing into the wall just after making a catch to sustain
Santanas no-hitter. He hit the wall with his left side, and originally thought
he had hurt his left shoulder. “I knew I got it good,” said Baxter, who is
expected to miss around six weeks. Ramirez strained his right hamstring while
running onto the field with teammates to mob Santana after he finished the first
no-hitter in Mets history. Carlos Beltran got the Cardinals first hit of the
series, a clean double against Dickey in the second inning—a day after he hit
a shot down the line that looked fair but was ruled foul against Santana. The
Cardinals have lost four straight and seven of nine. “Its hard to string them
together when its dancing and he is in the zone,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny
said. “Knuckleball is not an easy pitch to bunt, hit, or hit to the opposite
field. You have to put together a good swing at what you see in the zone.” Citi
Field brimmed with happy energy on a breezy, sunny day the day after Santana
pitched the first no-hitter in more than 50 years of team history. T-shirts with
the phrase “No-Han” commemorating Santanas feat were advertised on sale during
the seventh inning stretch. “Thats how youre going to be successful,” Mets
manager Terry Collins said. “It starts with pitching and it will always be
pitching, and when those two guys go out there, we think weve got a chance to
win. Cardinals starter Lance Lynn allowed five hits and two earned runs in 4 2-3
innings, leaving with the score 3-0 and runners on second and third. Lynn (8-2)
walked four and struck out three, losing for the second time in four decisions
since starting the season with six straight wins. Dickkey gave up a bunt single
to Rafael Furcal and a line-drive to Daniel Descalso to begin the ninth, but
Matt Holliday hit into a 6-4-3 double play and Beltran flied out to right field
to end the game in 2 hours, 34 minutes. Antonio Smith Jersey. “The thing with him is
that he can throw it slow, fast, even medium,” Beltran said. “And he has a
slider and a fastball. With other guys, you can sit on one pitch. He can throw
any pitch at any count.” The reborn knuckleballer who was almost out of baseball
before committing to the pitch and remaking his career, baffled the Cardinals
all day, getting swinging strikes and weakly hit grounders. Dickey ended the
fifth inning by throwing four straight knuckleballs to Adams, then getting him
to swing at a not-so-fast fastball for strike three. Omar Quintanilla put an
even bigger exclamation point on the seventh inning, when he dived to his left
to get a hot grounder from Yadier Molina. The shortstop then popped to his feet,
spun, and fired to first, prompting a big fist pump from Dickey, who was already
striding off the mound. Dickey struck out the side in the eighth to put himself
on the cusp of three straight games with double-digit strikeouts. As it is, he
has 30 in his last three starts—against one walk. He hasnt allowed a run in
17 1-3 innings overall, and he and Santana had back-to-back shutouts for the
first time since Aug. 12-13, 2010. In that one, Dickey followed up Santana with
a 1-0 blanking of Philadelphia. “Itd be tough to find two teams with guys who
are throwing the ball as well as Johan and Dickey,” Wright said. “In either
league.” The Mets got all the scoring they needed in the second, though
Daniel Murphy added a run in the seventh when Eduardo Sanchez threw a wild pitch
while Dickey batted. Ike Davis led off the second with a single and Quintanilla
was hit by a pitch. Josh Thole loaded the bases on an infield single before
Dickey reached out and tapped a ball to second base. Descalso fielded it,
stumbled and dropped it. Once Descalso got the ball back, he rushed his throw to
first, where Matt Adams dropped it for an error that allowed Dickey to reach and
gave the pitcher an RBI. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a grounder to Adams, and
Andres Torres grounded out to shortstop before Wright ended the inning with a
grounder of his own. NOTES: After highlights of his no-hitter from the night
before were played on the scoreboard, Santana stepped out of the Mets dugout and
tipped his cap as fans gave him a warm hand before the game started. ... Collins
said he was conflicted about letting Santana pitch for so long—134 pitches, a
career high. He said the Mets would wait a bit to see whether Santana will be
pushed back a day or two before his next start. ... Cardinals RHP Jake Westbrook
is set to start Sunday nights game against lefty Jonathon Niese. ... Adams was
not close to the first base bag when LF Holliday uncorked a throw that advanced
two runners in the fifth inning, and was removed via double switch when Matheny
pulled Lynn. ... The Mets lead the NL with six shutouts this season. ’ ’ ’
