NEW YORK —Ryan Braun had a fresh pink welt on his left triceps, where he was
hit one pitch after Rickie Weeks launched a long home run in the seventh inning.
J.J. Watt Jersey . He barely felt it.
Zack Greinkes seven stellar innings and Travis Ishikawas two homers and five
RBIs in the Milwaukee Brewers 8-0 win over the New York Mets on Tuesday night
were quite the pain reliever for the NL MVP. “Its fine,” Braun said of his arm.
Greinke (4-1) was more than fine for his second straight outing. He allowed five
hits, struck out seven and walked none while extending his scoreless streak to
15 innings. “Controls been good, the last two starts. Thats the main key,”
Greinke said. “Its mainly just being able to throw quality strikes.” Weeks drive
to deep left snapped an 0-for-21 skid and touched off an ugly moment. Mets
reliever D.J. Carrasco then hit Braun with his next pitch and was immediately
ejected by plate umpire Gary Darling. “I didnt like it. I dont understand it,”
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. Mets manager Terry Collins pinch hit for
David Wright leading off the bottom half. Wright had two of the Mets hits off
Greinke, a double and a broken-bat single in the fourth inning—a shard of
wood whirling past Greinke. “It was interesting what that shows,” Roenicke said
of Collins lifting Wright—and also David Murphy two batters later. Collins
and Wright had a discussion in the dugout before he was due up. Wright wanted to
bat but Collins was not going to put his .408-hitting star in a dangerous
position. “He said, If somebody should be hit, I want it to be me,” Collins
said. “I said its not going to be you.” Braun understood both sides of the
argument. “I respect the fact that he wanted to stay in the game,” Braun said.
“I dont fault them for making that decision at all.” Tim Dillard worked the
eighth and John Axford gave up a hit in the ninth while finishing the
six-hitter. It was Axfords first appearance since his string of 49 straight
saves ended Friday night and he left a note of apology to the media in the
clubhouse when he went to be with his wife, who was having contractions.
Ishikawa led off the fifth with his third homer of the year and connected for a
three-run shot in the sixth, both drives coming on the first pitch of the at-bat
against Dillon Gee (2-3). He also had a run-scoring groundout in the second
inning as fog started rolling in, a misty haze that hung over the outfield for
the remainder of the game. “Hes been throwing a lot of strikes,” said Ishikawa,
who has been platooning at first base since Mat Gamel tore a ligament in his
right knee in early May. “I didnt want to get deep into the count.” The Mets had
a chance to move six games over .500 for the first time since July 18, 2010, but
managed little against Greinke. The Mets did not make an out to the outfield
against Greinke. Only Wright and pinch-hitter Mike Baxter, who doubled to left
in the sixth, reached second. Greinke came in 30-46 away from home—he is
80-74 overall. His only poor start this season came at the Chicago Cubs, when he
gave up eight runs. “Im just trying to keep the same mindset,” Greinke said
about pitching on the road as compared to home. “Im trying to make that better.
Youre just a little more comfortable at home.” The Brewers gave Greinke an early
lead on Ishikawas groundout and Cesar Izturis RBI single. Ishikawa homered off
the “Wise Snacks” sign above the New York bullpen in right-centre on the first
pitch of the fifth inning. Braun and Aramis Ramirez singled off Gee to start the
sixth. Jonathan Lucroy had a one-out RBI single before Ishikawa hit another long
ball for the first multihomer game of his career. Ishikawa added a third hit in
the eighth, an infield single. Weeks returned to the Brewers starting lineup
after being limited to one pinch-hit at-bat in three games because of a bruised
hand. He struck out twice and grounded to shortstop before getting his first hit
since May 6. Gee was very upset after giving up 10 hits and four runs in 5 2-3
innings in his previous start. This one was worse. He matched a season high by
allowing seven runs and yielded eight hits in 5 1-3 innings. Gee has not won in
three starts. “Mistakes that he makes are in the middle of the plate,” Collins
said. NOTES: Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (strained left hamstring) is set to begin a
rehab assignment with Class-A Wisconsin on Wednesday. Roenicke said he should be
back Sunday. ... Major League Baseball will officially name the Mets host of the
2013 All-Star game at Citi Field with a ceremony at City Hall on Wednesday
morning. ... Murphy singled in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to a
career-high 11 games. Brice McCain Jersey . Play was halted for
four minutes in the seventh inning while the fan received CPR and was carted off
on a stretcher. Ambulance sirens could be heard outside the stadium as the fan
was carted off, still receiving CPR. Lestar Jean Jersey . “Its in the best
interests of myself and the England team that I dont carry on into next year,”
Johnson said at a news conference at Twickenham. Appointed without any coaching
experience in 2008, he didnt want to renew his contract which expires in
December. http://www.texansteamstore.com/matt-schaub-jersey
. The 42-year-old Jaidee, who was the overnight leader, holed four birdies on
the back nine at Celtic Manor after bogeying the fourth and double-bogeying the
par-five ninth, where he went out of bounds before finding a bunker. Trindon Holliday Jersey . However, those who
follow the game closely will tell you that appearances can be deceiving. The
mens and womens national teams are simply the tip of the iceberg that is
Canadian soccer. Casual observers use the relative success (or failure) of our
mens and womens teams to pass judgment on the state of the game in Canada as a
whole. T.J. Yates Jersey . Little drama, either.
Novak Djokovic simply ground his way to another tournament title match.PANAMA
CITY —Emerson Frostads single to centre with the bases loaded in the top of
the eleventh Saturday gave Canada the lead and Jimmy Henderson closed the door
in the bottom of the inning as Canada went on to defeat Netherlands 5-4 at the
Baseball World Cup. With the win, Canada (5-1) earned a berth in the tournaments
second round. The IBAF tie-breaker rule was used in extra innings, where the
offensive team begins with runners on first and second. After both teams scored
a run in the tenth to keep the game tied, Shawn Bowman led off the eleventh with
a sacrifice bunt that moved Tim Smith to third and Jimmy Van Ostran to second.
Jamie Romak was then intentionally walked, which set the stage for Frostads
clutch hit. “With one out, I was just trying to get a ball to the outfield and
at worse get a sac fly,” Frostad said. “I was able to get a base hit so it was
all the better.” Frostad came off the bench in the ninth after starting catcher
Cole Armstrong had a cramp and was unable to continue. “Cole did a great job and
I was just fortunate enough to come in and get that hit,” Frostad said. “All our
guys are ready to go at any time.” In the bottom of the eleventh, Netherlands
chose to bunt with their lead-off hitter, but he popped the ball into foul
territory where third baseman, Chris Bisson made the catch for the first out.
After another pop-out, Henderson walked a batter to load the bases, but struck
out the nexxt hitter to end the game. Brooks Reed Jersey. “What a battle it was all
day, our pitching was outstanding” said Canadian manager Ernie Whitt. We didnt
swing the bats well, our pitchers kept us in the game and to win the game with
only four hits in eleven innings is pretty amazing.” Andrew Albers did a
masterful job in relief of starter Kyle Lotzkar who got into trouble in the
third inning. Albers threw three innings, allowing only two hits and striking
out one. “Hes been solid (throughout the tournament),” Whitt said. “Im really
impressed with this young man. He started one game for us and has been huge
coming out of the bullpen which we really needed today.” Down 2-0, Canada tied
the game with two runs in the fifth as Armstrong belted a solo homer before
Jonathan Malo scored from third when Smiths hard hit grounder went through the
second basemans legs. Both teams traded runs in the seventh, with Canadas coming
on a wild pitch. Dustin Molleken came in from the Canadian bullpen in the
seventh and provided his team with 3 1-3 innings of solid relief. He worked out
of the ninth inning, when the Netherlands had the winning run in scoring
position. Molleken lasted into the 10th inning before Henderson took over for
the final four outs of the game. Canada plays its final game in Pool A against
the United States on Sunday. The matchup is crucial as Canadas record against
the top four seeds from Pool A carries over to the second round. ’ ’ ’
