Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says Arsenal is playing hardball on
the sale of star striker Robin van Persie, but he remains hopeful of luring the
Dutchman to Old Trafford. Matt Ryan Elite Jersey . Ferguson said
Arsenal is negotiating with other clubs about van Persie, with a perceived
preference of selling to a non-English club, but said “we just have to
persevere, hopefully it will come our way.” He added “were not getting any
breakthrough with Arsenal. Its difficult to say why theyre operating this way.”
United has lost out in its bid to sign Brazilian Lucas Moura, who is bound for
big-spending Paris St. Germain. Ferguson said the reported transfer fee of 45
million euros for a 19-year-old shows “the games gone mad.” Julio Jones Youth Jersey . “(Zobrist)s at
bats have gotten better. Theres more force in his swing,” Rays manager Joe
Maddon said. “Hes done a great job. Hes been valuable for us.” Andy Sonnanstine
(12-6) threw his third consecutive quality start, throwing six innings on just
two runs and six hits. Matt Ryan Pink Jersey . In their first trip
back to the city since the historic Game 5 of the 2008 World Series that was
played over two separate days, the Rays were forced to sit through a 2-hour,
48-minute rain delay before Fridays scheduled game against the Philadelphia
Phillies was postponed. http://www.fansfalconsroom.com/roddy-white-jerseys
. The four top teams from the regular season have advanced through two rounds of
playoffs to square off in this weekends preliminary finals. Tony Gonzalez Authentic Jersey . The Heat had
Bosh on their active roster for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against
the Boston Celtics tonight, after the All-Star forward missed nine games with a
strained lower abdominal muscle. Justin Blalock Jersey . The Minnesota Twins
signed Josh Willingham to be their hammer in situations just like this, and the
struggling slugger delivered in a big way against the Oakland Athletics on
Tuesday night. CHICAGO —White Sox backup catcher Tyler Flowers figured hed
have another night off. And then starter A.J. Pierzynski and manager
Robin Ventura were ejected in the third inning and suddenly he was in the game.
Flowers responded to the quick call Saturday night. He homered to tie the game
in the sixth and later had an eighth-inning, two-strike bunt single to set up an
important insurance run as Chicago beat the Seattle Mariners 5-4 for its fifth
straight win. “Im always ready to come in, but not usually that early. Being
behind him (Pierzynski), theres not too many opportunities to get in the game
when hes starting,” Flowers said. “It was a little different for sure, but it
all worked out and we got the win. Thats the most important thing.” Seattle took
a quick first-inning lead on Kyle Seagers three-run homer before the White Sox
rallied to preserve their 2 1/2-game lead over second-place Detroit in the AL
Central. Seager also connected in the ninth against closer Addison Reed to get
the Mariners to within a run. Pierzynski was ejected for apparently arguing
balls and strikes with one out in the top of the third. When Ventura charged out
of the dugout to protest, he also was ejected and had to be separated from plate
umpire Lance Barrett by third base umpire and crew chief Jim Joyce. “You have
A.J. out there and your guy gets thrown out. Youre out there protecting him,”
Ventura said. “I didnt think I was that mad. Its just part of baseball. Its what
you do.” Pierzynski didnt reveal what he said to Barrett, joking they were
disagreeing on pizza crusts. “Its over with. It was between him and I,”
Pierzynski said, adding that the normally mild-mannered Venturas outburst gave
the team a spark. “Ive never seen Robin get that mad. It was one of those things
that happens during the course of the season and fortunately for us we were able
to win the game.” Nate Jones (6-0) got the final out of the sixth to get the
win. Reed gave up Seagers 15th homer and then a single to Justin Smoak before
getting the final out for his 24th save in 28 chances. Reed blew a save Friday
night when Seattle scored six times in the ninth only to get the win when
Chicago rallied in the bottom half. Flowers off the sixth with his fifth homer
of the season—a drive to centre on the first pitch of the inning by
Blake Beavan. With two down and Alexei Ramirez on third, Dewayne& Wise
singled to centre against off Charlie Furbush to give the White Sox a 4-3 lead.
Tony Gonzalez Limited Jersey. . The Mariners
loaded the bases in the seventh off Matt Thornton on a single, hit batsman and a
walk. Brett Myers relieved and retired pinch-hitter John Jaso on a soft liner to
second baseman Gordon Beckham to end the inning. Chicago added an important run
in the eighth on Alex Rios double, a bunt single by Flowers and Ramirezs
sacrifice fly. Chicago starter Jose Quintana was wild in the first inning,
issuing four walks. Dustin Ackley beat out an infield single to lead off and
Trayvon Robinson walked. One out later, Seager hit a drive to deep right-centre.
“We had them on the ropes there that first inning, maybe just a couple swings
from getting them out of that ballgame early. It completely changes the
complexion of the whole game,” Seager said. After Seagers homer, Quintana walked
the bases loaded before getting Brendan Ryan to fly out to end the inning. The
White Sox got one back in the first on Paul Konerkos RBI single and another in
the third on a run-scoring single by Rios. And Quintana settled in after his
shaky start, retiring 12 straight at one point. He made it through 5 2-3
innings, giving up five hits and three runs with four walks and four strikeouts.
“We missed some opportunities. (Quintana) did settle down,” Seattle manager Eric
Wedge said. “We came out, we were aggressive, we took the lead. It hurt us when
they scored in that first inning, but we still had 3-1 in that situation. Then
it was just a matter of missed opportunities. We had multiple opportunities to
score runs, we had multiple opportunities to execute. It didnt go down.” Beavan
(8-8), who was the losing pitcher in April when Phil Humber pitched a perfect
game in Seattle for the White Sox, went five-plus innings, giving up seven hits
and four runs. NOTES: Mariners OF Michael Saunders, who collided with
Eric Thames on Konerkos winning single Friday night, was out of the lineup with
a sore groin. Thames also was out but not because he was injured. He didnt start
with the lefty Quintana on the mound. He had a pinch-hit single in the eighth.
... White Sox LF Dayan Viciedo was scratched with a sore right shoulder. ...
Venturas ejection was his third in his first season as manager. ... The White
Sox are 23-4 against the Mariners since the start of the 2010 season. ’ ’ ’
