WASHINGTON —The Washington Nationals designated struggling reliever Brad Lidge
for assignment Sunday and activated reliever Ryan Mattheus. Torrey Smith Authentic Jersey . Lidge signed
a $1 million, one-year contract as a free agent in the off-season to add veteran
bullpen depth behind closer Drew Storen and All-Star Tyler Clippard, but the
35-year-old right-hander couldnt find the form that made him a two-time All-Star
with Houston and Philadelphia. He went 0-1 with two saves and a 9.64 ERA in 11
appearances with the Nationals, and opponents were batting .308 against him.
Lidge allowed three runs in Washingtons 7-2 loss to the New York Yankees on
Friday and was the losing pitcher against New York on Saturday, giving up two
runs in the 14th inning of a 5-3 defeat. General manager Mike Rizzo said the
marathon game forced the move, with the bullpen in need of a fresh arm for
Sundays series finale. “Brad wasnt performing very well,” Rizzo said, “and
Mattheus was ready to come off the rehab assignment. We thought this was the
right time to make the move.” When Storen went down with an elbow injury during
spring training, Lidge began sharing the closing duties with Henry Rodriguez,
but a sports hernia sent Lidge to the disabled list in late April. He was
reinstated on June 7. “I think he was healthy,” Rizzo said. “He said he was
healthy. He threw like he was healthy. He was in no pain, no after-effects after
he was done rehabbing.” Lidge debuted with the Astros in 2002. He has 225 career
saves, and helped the Phillies win the 2008 World Series by going the entire
regular season and post-season without blowing a save. After Saturdays game,
Lidge said he felt he was making good pitches, but the batters were finding the
holes. “Just keep throwing good pitches, quality pitches, and at some point
those balls will get to people and well make outs,” Lidge said. “But until then,
youve just got to battle and keep throwing strikes.” Mattheus missed the last 24
games with a plantar fascia strain in his left foot. The 28-year-old
right-hander went 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in three rehab appearances with Double-A
Harrisburg and Single-A Potomac. In 19 relief appearances with Washington this
season, Mattheus is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA. Haloti Ngata Limited Jersey . The designated
player was acquired in a trade with the Vancouver Whitecaps on July 20 after
Danny Koevermans was lost for the season with a knee injury. Jameel McClain Jersey . Liverpool hosts Wigan
on Saturday, and although that will be too early for Lucas to play, he could
make his comeback against Swiss side Young Boys in the Europa League on Nov. http://www.shopbaltimoreravensgear.com/womens-arthur-jones-nike-jersey/
. Thats when he got his first lesson. “Its CHOWDA, Shane!” Red Sox centre
fielder Jacoby Ellsbury corrected him. “That was the first real message from
Jacoby for Boston,” Victorino said Thursday at a news conference to announce the
$39 million, three-year deal he agreed to at the winter meetings. Ray Rice Limited Jersey . 1 Rory McIlroy
should represent Britain or Ireland at the 2016 Olympics. McIlroy in particular
has found himself drawn into the controversy as to which nation he should
compete for when golf returns to the Olympic program at Rio de Janeiro for the
first time since 1924. Jacoby Jones Jersey .S. —The St.MONTREAL—
Peter Byers tied the game in the 85th minute for Montreal as the Impact fought
back to draw Minnesota 1-1 in United Soccer Leagues action Sunday. The Thunder
(7-12-10) opened the scoring in the sixth minute thanks to Marco Terminesi shot
that beat Impact goalkeeper Matt Jordan. On the tying goal, Byers took a pass
from Roberto Brown in the 18-yard box, dribbled past two Thunder players, and
buried a left-footed shot that beat Thunder goalkeeper Matt Van Oekel. Montreal
(12-10-7) sits fifth in the USL First Division and are unbeaten in its last
seven game (5-0-2). “We were invisible in the first half and unable to create
something. But thhe message was understood at halftime and we then dominated the
second half,” said Montreal head coach Marc Dos Santos. Torrey Smith Elite Jersey. Byers goal was his
fourth of the season, all of which have come during Montreals unbeaten streak.
“It was a tough match and we had to make an important effort to get the goal,”
commented Byers. “I waited for my chance and I took advantage of it.” Byers was
ejected in second-half stoppage time after receiving his second yellow card of
the game and will serve an automatic one-game suspension. The Impact play their
final regular-season game Friday when they visit the Carolina RailHawks. ’ ’ ’
