LOS ANGELES —Johan Santana is amply pleased with how his season is going. Arian Foster Elite Jersey . So are the New
York Mets, who were hoping for the best when their lefty ace returned after
missing all of last year while recovering from shoulder surgery. The two-time AL
Cy Young Award winner didnt need the no-hitter he pitched against St. Louis on
June 1 to demonstrate how close to his old form he is. There have been several
other examples, including Saturday, when Santana scattered three hits over eight
innings and sent the Los Angeles Dodgers to their seventh straight loss, 5-0.
“Coming into spring training, there were a lot of question marks. So Im very
happy to be at this point right now and very happy the way everything has gone,”
Santana said. “There were a couple of tough games, but the good thing is that I
feel good and Im still competing. Thats the key for me. Im just hoping that I
stay consistent the whole year.” In his fifth start since pitching the first
no-hitter in Mets history, Santana (6-4) did not give up a hit between
Dee Gordons leadoff single in the first inning and Scott Van Slykes leadoff
single in the eighth. Tony Gwynn Jr. singled two batters later and both runners
advanced on Adam Kennedys groundout. But Gordon grounded out to third. “After
the second inning he got better and better and better, and he got much better
command of his fastball and his changeup,” manager Terry Collins said. “This is
his best outing since the no-hitter.” Santana struck out three and walked two
while throwing 107 pitches, the sixth time he has reached triple digits—
including the 134 he had in the no-no. The four-time All-Star finished June 4-2
with a 2.77 ERA in six starts. “I had never seen Johan Santana throw a pitch
live until this year, so I had no idea what to expect,” said Collins, who is in
his second season as Mets manager. “When I was sitting in the dugout watching
him today, he was really starting to get his stuff working. (Pitching coach) Dan
Warthen said to me: Can you imagine him when he was 95 and 96 miles an hour? And
I couldnt. I cant even believe how good he was then—because hes real good
right now.” Santana is 5-0 with a 0.50 ERA in five career starts against the
Dodgers, who were again missing Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Mark Ellis. They
havent led at any point of a game since June 24. Ike Davis hit a three-run
homer, helping keep Los Angeles sputtering. The Dodgers are in a 1-11 freefall,
going from five games ahead in the NL West to a game behind the Giants. At one
point, they led by as many as 7 1/2 games on May 27. Nathan Eovaldi (0-5) gave
up five runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. The 22-year-old right-hander has
pitched 41 innings in his seven starts this season, and his teammates have
totalled just three runs while hes been in the game—giving him the lowest run
support in the majors. The Dodgers have been on the losing end in every one of
Eovaldis outings, scoring fewer than three runs in six of them. “I go out there
not thinking about that,” Eovaldi said. “I just try to compete, try not to let
anybody score and give my team the best chance to win. We all know that its
going to be a challenge and a battle. You just try to make the best of it.” The
Dodgers were shut out for the fifth time in six games—including all three at
San Francisco—and have produced only two runs in their last 57 innings. “When
youre not scoring runs, its frustrating,” Van Slyke said. “I mean, when you look
at the Mets today, they got a double, got him over and got him in in like three
pitches. So when youre scoring runs, it looks easier than it actually is. I
think its just going to take one game where everyones swinging the bat well to
just kind of relax everybody and get things going.” David Murphys sacrifice fly
in the second inning drove in Davis with the first run after he led off with a
double. The Mets used the same formula to account for their second run—a
leadoff double by Murphy and a scoring flyball by Josh Thole. Davis made it 5-0
in the sixth, chasing Eovaldi with his 11th homer, a towering drive to centre
field one pitch after an intentional walk to David Wright with Andres Torres at
third base. “Yesterday, Murphy and (Lucas) Duda picked me up, but today I was
able to get the job done,” Davis said. “Just hitting a home run is a great
feeling. Hopefully I can continue to do some damage in situations like that,
especially is other teams are going to walk David. Maybe towards the second half
of the season, theyll start having to pitch to him.” NOTES: In each of Santanas
five starts since his no-hitter, he allowed a hit before recording his fourth
out of the game. He gave up a two-run homer to the Yankees Robinson Cano in the
second inning, a two-run double in the second by Tampa Bays Matt Joyce, a
second-inning double by Baltimores Matt Wieters, and a first-inning single by
the Cubs Alfonso Soriano. ... Murphy has 10 RBIs in four games, equaling the
total he had in his previous 25 games and 96 at-bats. ... Saturday was the 50th
anniversary of the first of Sandy Koufaxs four career no-hitters, a 5-0 victory
over the Mets at Dodger Stadium. ... The Dodgers signed 18-year-old SS Corey
Seager, the 18th overall pick in the draft and the brother of Seattle Mariners
3B Kyle Seager. Owen Daniels Jersey . Marks missed the
preseason finale against New Orleans. Reserve offensive tackle Mike Otto is the
only other player who did not practice and has been declared out as he recovers
from hand and knee surgeries. J.J. Watt Jersey . —Alcides Escobar has
been dutifully going to the gym every week, and not just going through the
motions. http://www.houstontexansfansprostore.com/antonio-smith-jersey
. Sixers president Rod Thorn confirmed the move in an email to The Associated
Press on Friday. Brand was entering the final season of an $80 million,
five-year contract. The amnesty clause allows a team to waive one player during
the new labour deal and have 100 per cent of his salary taken off the cap and
the tax. Brian Cushing Jersey . The ordeal has left
her hospitalized for more than three weeks. Janet Richardson spent four minutes
treading water March 29 after Norwegian coast guard officers let her stretcher
slip into the sea as they were evacuating her from a Scandinavian cruise ship,
rescue officials and her husband George told The Associated Press. Andre Johnson Jersey . The ace obliged.
Sabathia steadied New Yorks rocky rotation with eight sharp innings,
Alex Rodriguez passed Willie Mays for eighth on the career RBIs list and the
Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 on Sunday despite leaving an astonishing 14
men on base in the first six innings. BOSTON —The slumping Boston Red Sox will
have a new pitching coach for the remainder of their tumultuous first season
under manager Bobby Valentine. Bob McClure was fired Monday and replaced by
Randy Niemann with the Red Sox on the fringe of the playoff race following
another rough stretch. “We felt like we needed to make a change to put our
pitchers in the best position to do what they needed to do,” general manager Ben
Cherington said. “The next six weeks are important to create a foundation going
into the off-season. We felt like this change was needed to give ourselves the
best chance to do that.” The Red Sox have lost 12 of 18 games this month to fall
off the pace in the competitive AL East. Bostons 4.30 team ERA was 11th in the
American League heading into Mondays games. “This is a performance-based
decision,” Cherington said. “As I said yesterday, theres been a real good effort
on the part of the staff to work together and iron out any communication issues
that may have existed previously. This decision had nothing to do with that.”
Boston has struggled in its first year under Valentine, who took over in
Deecember after agreeing to a two-year deal with club options for 2014 and 2015.
Brooks Reed Jersey. Popular infielder
Kevin Youkilis had a public dustup with Valentine before he was traded to the
White Sox, and Yahoo Sports reported that several players met with owner John
Henry and team president Larry Lucchino in New York last month to complain about
the managers handling of the team. The Red Sox (59-63) were off Monday and host
the Los Angeles Angels in the opener of a three-game series on Tuesday night.
The 60-year-old McClure became the pitching coach in December. He also spent six
seasons in the same position with the Kansas City Royals. The left-hander was
68-57 with 52 saves and a 3.81 ERA in 19 seasons in the majors. Niemann was
elevated from assistant pitching coach. He is in his first year with Boston
after spending 24 seasons in the New York Mets organization. “Randys got a lot
of experience, too,” Cherington said. “He knows our guys well.” The Red Sox also
will be without outfielder Carl Crawford for the remainder of the season. He is
scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on his left elbow Thursday. ’ ’ ’
