CHICAGO -- Robin Ventura insists he can work with Chris Sale despite the suspended aces critical comments about the White Sox manager. Nike Air Max 95 Clearance .Sale is serving a five-day, unpaid ban after he destroyed throwback uniforms the team was supposed to wear for his start Saturday. Sale told in a story published Monday that he doesnt regret standing up for what he believed and said Ventura should have stood up for his players.Ventura shook off the comments before Tuesday nights 3-0 win over the Cubs and supported general manager Rick Hahns decision to send the left-hander home after the incident.Everything that happened in (the clubhouse) Im going to keep it in there. But we had to act, Ventura said. It was over the line.White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams expressed support for Ventura and Hahn before Tuesday nights game against the crosstown Cubs. Ventura, in his fifth year as manager, is in the final season of his contract and Chicago is fading from playoff contention after a 23-10 start.The one thing I can say is the way that Rick and Robin I think handled the situation, it was a difficult situation, certainly a unique situation, but one in which I think they handled in an excellent fashion, Williams said.Sale called the 1976 V-neck, collared jerseys uncomfortable and unorthodox in the interview. Sale said he first complained about the uniforms in spring training and then twice revisited the subject before Saturdays scheduled start against Detroit. Sale also criticized Williams during spring training for restricting clubhouse access for Adam LaRoches son, Drake.After seeing the collared jerseys hanging from players lockers when he arrived Saturday, Sale became enraged. When the team didnt agree to change them out, Sale cut up enough jerseys that the White Sox had to switch uniforms.Robin is the one who has to fight for us in that department, Sale told If the players dont feel comfortable 100 percent about what we are doing to win the game, and we have an easy fix -- it was as easy as hanging up another jersey and everyone was fine. For them to put business first over winning, thats when I lost it.Sale, 14-3 with a 3.18 ERA, never wore the replacement 1983 throwback jersey. He was scratched from his start, sent home and the next day suspended for what Hahn described as insubordination and for destroying team equipment.There are a lot of people that work hard on that stuff that are on the other side of the hall, Ventura said. Thats their job, to either create a different uniform, create a promotional night to help get people in the stands and make money.The volatile Sale and Ventura engaged in a heated argument during the 2014 season. In spring training this year, Sale accused Williams of lying to players after Williams banned LaRoches son from the clubhouse. LaRoche later retired, and Sale hung the jerseys of LaRoche and his son in his locker.Sales future in Chicago is uncertain. The White Sox were 50-50 after Tuesdays win and third in the AL Central. Theyre expected to field inquiries for Sale before the Aug. 1 deadline. Sale has a club-friendly contract that runs through 2019, counting two years of team options.Despite all of that, Ventura said he can absolutely still work effectively with Sale. The left-hander worked out on his own at U.S. Cellular Field early Tuesday and is scheduled to start Thursday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.Im more interested in everyone moving on, Williams said when asked about Sales behavior. Any further comment beyond what I just said is counterproductive to all of that. At one point in my career, you probably couldve gotten me to comment in a very different way. Im sure it would be more entertaining for all, except me.

DETROIT -- With two on and two out in the third inning, Miguel Cabrera struck out swinging at a pitch that was low and inside, and the slugger was so off balance he ended up on one knee. Jordan Shoes Retro .He made up for that missed opportunity his next time up.Cabreras three-run homer highlighted Detroits seven-run fifth inning, and the Tigers beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 on Tuesday night. Jose Iglesias and Nick Castellanos also homered during Detroits big inning, which came after Adam Conley had been dominant through four.Cabreras 17th homer came on a full-count pitch after he struck out twice earlier in the game.He kind of went into battle mode with two strikes, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. And then (Conley) left an off-speed pitch up in the zone, and Miggy can hit those as far as anyone.Mike Pelfrey (2-7) allowed four runs and 12 hits in 5 1/3 innings, and that performance was enough for the win.Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer for Miami.Conley (4-5) struck out six in the first two innings. He caught Cabrera looking in the first and swinging in the third, but when the Detroit slugger came up a third time, he hit a drive well beyond the fence in left-center field to give the Tigers a 5-3 lead.Cabrera was a changeup that I didnt feel committed to throwing, Conley said. We went hard at him in the first at-bat, and that let me get him to chase a slider in the second at-bat, so thats a smart pitch. There wasnt really any rhyme or reason to throwing the changeup, and he was sitting on something soft.Four relievers finished the game for Detroit after Pelfreys departure. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a hitless ninth for his 21st save in 23 chances.The Tigers were in a bit of a funk after being swept in a three-game series by AL Central-leading Cleveland. Detroit made three errors in the first five innings Tuesday.Stanton opened the scoring in the second with his 15th homer of the season, but the Marlins couldnt break the game open when they had the chance.Miami led 3-0 in the fifth when Iglesias connected for a two-run shot. After Cabrera went deep, Conley was taken out, and Nick Wittgren allowed a two-run drive by Castellanos.Conley was coming off a sparkling outing against Atlanta in which he threw eight scoreless innings. He looked terrific against the Tigers before his night unraveled in the fifth. The left-hander ended up allowing five runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out nine.NUMBER 30Cabrera has now homered against all 30 major league teams, and it was fitting that he completed that feat against the Marlins, the team he made his debut for.We got the lead that inning with a home run, and it was more special because of that -- and we win the game, Cabrera said.TRANSACTIONSMiami purchased the contract of left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes from Triple-A New Orleans, and right-hander Paul Clemens was claimed off waivers by San Diego. Clemens went 1-0 with a 6.30 ERA for the Marlins.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: OF Marcell Ozuna (left wrist) returned after missing two games. He singled twice and scored on Stantons homer.Tigers: RHP Warwick Saupold (right groin strain) made an injury rehab start with Triple-A Toledo on Monday night, allowing a run and four hits in 2 2/3 innings. He struck out five.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Tom Koehler (6-6) starts Wednesday against the Tigers in the finale of this two-game series. Miami is adjusting its rotation, starting Koehler in that game and pushing LHP Wei-Yin Chen back to Thursday night at Atlanta. Manager Don Mattingly said he wants to match Chen up against the Braves because of the left-handed hitters in their lineup.Tigers: LHP Daniel Norris (0-0) makes his second start of the season.---This version corrects Wei-Yin Chens first name in the Up Next section.

Adidas Nmd Sale .The Ducati rider timed 1 minute, 23.142 seconds in Saturdays qualifying to lead seven-time world champion Valentino Rossi on a Yamaha by 0.147 and Ducati teammate Andrea Dovizioso by 0.156.We worked very hard. We improved a lot on the setting of the bike. Its very good for us, said Iannone, who also took pole position at last years Italian GP but has yet to win a race.Defending MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo came fourth and championship leader Marc Marquez posted the fifth time, just hours after being airlifted to hospital following a crash in practice.Trying to avoid bumping into Honda teammate Dani Pedroso in turn three, Marquez lost balance and slid off the track. The fall dislocated his left shoulder but he escaped serious injuries.Medical examinations made at Leoben Hospital excluded further problems, Honda said.Marquez tweeted a picture of him making the V-sign with his right hand, and wrote: It has only been the fright! All is ok!The 2013 and 2014 champion Marquez leads two Yamaha riders in the world championship standings. Hes 48 points clear of Lorenzo and 59 ahead of Rossi.Its the first time in 19 years the marquee event in motorcycle racing is taking place in Austria.

Watford v Chelsea (Wednesday, 7.45pm) Odion Ighalo holds off Cesc Fabregas in Boxing Day draw at Stamford Bridge Chelsea should win this one. Theyve got the players to do just that and they seem up for it now. The players may be the same but Chelsea are a different team to when Jose Mourinho was there. Since Guus Hiddink has come in the players have really upped their games. Cesc Fabregas looks like the player he used to be, as does Diego Costa. If Chelsea can keep Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo quiet they win this game. Its quite simple. I see a 2-1 Chelsea win with Costa scoring first.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (8/1 with Sky Bet)Everton v Newcastle (Wednesday, 7.45pm) Tom Cleverleys late strike snatched Everton victory at St James Park on Boxing Day You just dont know what you are going to get with Everton. Last week I went with them to beat Swansea 4-0 and look what happened. I really thought Roberto Martinezs side would dominate Swansea, but they just didnt turn up. Theyve got star players but they just dont win football matches. It must be so frustrating to be an Everton fan. You look at the team when it comes out onto the pitch and think its a tremendous side.There are not many of those players that do not get in other teams in the Premier League. On the other hand, Newcastle have bought well this month and have played well in patches. But Everton have got too many good players and sooner or later they have to start winning football matches. Im backing Everton again, this time by a score of 3-1 with Romelu Lukaku scoring first.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (11/1 with Sky Bet)Arsenal v Southampton (Tuesday, 7.45pm) Cuco Martina celebrates stunning opening goal against Arsenal This is a difficult game for Arsenal. Southampton have really turned a corner. They had a bit of a dodgy patch but theyve got a run going. Theyre not letting in too many goals and are very hard to beat making this one a potential banana skin for Arsenal.Having Alexis Sanchez back is a real boost for the Gunners and I also think the fact Per Mertesacker is suspended is a bonus too, because we all saw what Shane Long did to him in the reverse fixture on Boxing Day. Thats the way Southampton would have tried to play again, hitting long balls over the top of Mertesacker for Long to chase.Still, its a difficult game for the Gunners but one they will win because of the return of Sanchez. He will score the first goal for me in what will be a 3-1 home win.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (12/1 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 0-0Leicester v Liverpool (Tuesday, 7.45pm)Kasper Schmeichel was on Soccer AM saying Leicester are not talking about the title. For me, they should be talking about it. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the club, the players and the supporters. They are where they are at the top because they are a good team and they are playing well.These opportunities dont come along that often. I won the league at Arsenal one year, didnt win the next but then won it again the year after. After that we never looked like winning it again. Thats how quickly it changes. Its a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and they are speaking about not talking about it. Its beyond me. Christian Bentekes late strike saw Liverpool inflict Leicesters second PL defeat on the season in December The next three games define them. If they win all three they will be Premier League champions. If they lose all three they will be fightting to stay in the top-four. Adidas Nmd For Sale Cheap. If you are not talking about winning it surely that makes you lackadaisical and it makes you think youve got a free swing at it.Its not a free swing. We are 23 games in, not five. However, I see them winning this game. They can beat Liverpool, who I think are a bit all over the shop at the moment. Im going for a 2-1 home win and Im also backing Jamie Vardy to be first goalscorer. I just cannot see how Liverpool will cope with Vardy.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (9/1 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 2-0Norwich v Tottenham (Tuesday, 7.45pm) Spurs will be looking for a repeat of their 3-0 victory over the Canaries I dont see anything other than a Tottenham win. They are absolutely flying at the moment. If you take a look at Norwich and their result the other week against a Liverpool side, who are not finding it easy to score goals and they let in five against them. Ive watched a lot this season and they create a lot of chances but just cannot put the ball in the net.Thats why the result against Liverpool was a real hammer blow for them. The one day they score four they let in five. Then you dont have a game for a while and thats even worse because you have a long time to stew over it. I just think Tottenham, who will miss Jan Vertonghen, are on fire. They have too much fire power and Im backing Spurs to win 3-1 with Harry Kane to grab the first goal.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-3 (14/1 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 0-3Sunderland v Man City (Tuesday, 7.45pm) Yaya Toure starred in Man Citys victory over Sunderland I remember when Sunderland beat Man City 1-0 back in 2012 when Ji Dong-won went round Joe Hart to score the winner in injury time. However, it could have been 100-0 to City. It was one of the most one-sided games Ive seen but Sunderland popped up with the winner. Sam Allardyce is in a bit of a tricky position at the moment. Hes got four incredibly hard games coming up against some of the top teams in the league.Sunderland have to pick up a couple of points here or there and sweat on a few other teams down there dropping points, otherwise they could be well adrift by the end of this month. Anything is a bonus for Sunderland against City, whose away form has not been great in recent times. However, with Sergio Aguero, who I am backing for the first goal, rested at the weekend I will have to side with City in a 3-1 win.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-3 (10/1 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 0-1West Ham v Aston Villa (Tuesday, 7.45pm) Aston Villas Jordan Ayew scores his sides first goal from the penatly spot against West Ham West Ham are a very good football team. Aston Villa were on a good run but after getting hammered by Man City 4-0, and now theyve got to travel to Upton Park, I think they are in trouble. With the likes of Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia in their ranks West Ham are a top team and Id be shocked if Villa got anything from this game. I cant see anything but a home 3-0 win with Valencia the man to open the scoring.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (14/1 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 2-0Crystal Palace v Bournemouth (Tuesday, 8pm) Adam Smith challenges Pape Souare (R) and Jason Puncheon of Crystal Palace Crystal Palace had an excellent result at the weekend and I can see them going all the way in the FA Cup. If they can have a bit of luck they can have a real good crack at lifting the trophy this year. I think they can beat Bournemouth. Eddie Howes side played well the other week at Sunderland and should have won the game. They didnt and thats a real worry for me.Crystal Palace will be a lot more ruthless and I can see the home side winning 3-2. Emmanuel Adebayor has come in but he hasnt had any football. I would be surprised to see him involved so Im going for Wilfried Zaha to score the first goal.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-2 (40/1 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 1-2Manchester United v Stoke (Tuesday, 8pm) Stoke heaped the pressure on United with a 2-0 Boxing Day win at the Britannia Derby played into Manchester Uniteds hands on Friday. The Championship side sat back and played the name rather than playing against the players at the club currently, who are not doing so well. Derby showed United far too much respect.When you play United you have to have a real go at them but Stoke have hit a brick wall all of a sudden. Going out of the Capital One Cup and then the FA Cup has been a real blow for them. Now they go to Old Trafford thinking their season is virtually over.Stoke have played some great stuff this year and have had a great season but in the blink of an eye they are out of everything. Im really not sure why, but I have a feel United will win this one. Its been a bad week at Stoke and I think it continues for them at Old Trafford. Im going for 2-1 United with Wayne Rooney scoring first.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 3-0West Brom v Swansea (Tuesday, 8pm) Ki Sung-Yueng of Swansea City scores against West Bromwich Albion I always think West Brom will be okay because of Tony Pulis. Hes too good at what he does for them to go down. Im not saying the players are too good, Pulis is too good. West Brom very rarely lose games when they cant afford to lose. Against Aston Villa the other week they were poor, but they did not lose. They got a point and those points add up in terms of a relegation battle.On the other hand, Swansea have turned a corner. They rode their luck against Everton but fair play to them, they got the result. Im backing a 1-1 draw here. I dont see West Brom losing games to the teams in and around them. Salomon Rondon can get the first goal for the hosts.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (9/2 with Sky Bet) - RESULT: 1-1Think you know better than Merse? Take him on at Super 6 for the chance to win £250,000!

FA chairman Greg Dyke says Leicester and Tottenham have proven you can succeed with English players I think you just have to enjoy and embrace the whole situation. You never know. Throughout my career this may not happen again, its such a big achievement.Leicester finish their season at Chelsea, boss Claudio Ranieris former club, on May 15 and Gray wants to prove the he deserves his place in the champions squad.He said: I hope I play at the weekend as well and I want to express myself some more and show everyone what I what I can do.

Paris Saint-Germain claim defender Serge Aurier has been refused entry into the UK ahead of their Champions League match against Arsenal on Wednesday due to a recent conviction. Asics Womens Shoes Clearance . The French champions say British authorities had originally granted the Ivory Coast international permission to enter the country for the game at the Emirates Stadium, but revoked the 23-year-olds visa on November 16.Aurier was given a two-month suspended prison sentence in May after allegedly assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub in Paris and is currently appealing that ruling. In a statement released on Tuesday, PSG said: After an initial application on October 18, complete with all the necessary documents, the British authorities had originally granted Paris Saint-Germains Ivory Coast international, Serge Aurier, an entry visa to the UK on 21 October. Aurier was given a suspended two month prison sentence in May However, on November 16, his visa was finally revoked by the British Ministry of the Interior, who justified their about-face by citing Auriers conviction on September 30, 2016.Paris Saint-Germain had, in all transparency, informed the British authorities of this conviction, as well as Auriers appeal against this decision (and the legal suspension of the ruling) from the outset.The club has argued several times that since the player has launched a legal appeal against the criminal ruling, he is therefore entitled to the presumption of innocence, as any other person exercising their right to appeal. Sky Sports Black Friday sale Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price! Paris Saint-Germain strongly regrets that the presumption of innocence has not influenced Britains decision. On several occasions, UEFA has also transmitted its total support of Paris Saint-Germain to the British authorities regarding this case, in order to preserve the integrity of its competitions.The club also deplores that the final decision of the British authorities was only communicated at 2pm on Tuesday, despite the club working for the last six days to find a solution to enable our player to travel with his team-mates to London.Paris Saint-Germain considers this extremely tardive response as a flagrant lack of respect for the club, given that its player could have been training with the team just hours later at Emirates Stadium.Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price.

Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). ARLINGTON, Texas -- If New York Giants?receiver Victor Cruz had drawn up a storybook return, it mightve looked something like what unfolded in Sundays opener against the Dallas Cowboys.Cruz scored the winning touchdown for the Giants in a 20-19 victory over their NFC East rivals at AT&T Stadium. He renewed the tradition of dancing the salsa in the end zone after a score, and catching big passes from quarterback Eli Manning when the Giants needed them most.After 700 days, Cruz finally returned to a regular-season game after knee and calf injuries kept him out of the Giants previous 26 games. For it to end the way it did, it was almost surreal. Even Cruz couldnt believe it.No, to be honest with you, he said. But Im excited to have the opportunity, just excited the way my life is unfolding here. I dont even know what kind of ending its going to have.The Giants (1-0) won, Cruz scored in his return and, for one night at least, all was right in the Big Blue universe.Cruz finished with four catches for 34 yards and a touchdown in his return. Finally, the Giants got a real taste of what they may receive on the field from the former Pro Bowl receiver.I was excited for him. Not just for the touchdown, but just being out there today [and] catching some passes and being in the mix, doing his deal, Manning said. So thats good for us that he can come back and make plays. He has so much experience at finding windows, finding lanes and getting back to where hes comfortable catching balls and making guys miss. Thats big for this team. Im excited for him from the standpoint that its been a long time for him, almost 700 days since his last game. Thats pretty special for him to get the game-winning touchdown in this game. ... Hes looking good, looking like his old self, and thats big for us.Its also important for Cruz. Even though he claims to have never doubted the return would happen, he knows the opportunity is special. There arent many skill-position players who have missed almost two full seasons (especially after tearing their patellar tendon) and returned to any significant degree of success.Cruz, 29, not only made it back, but he managed to score a touchdown the Giants desperately needed to give them the lead with 6:13 remaining in the contest.Just to overcome so much, man, just to get to this momennt. Asics Womens Shoes USA. A lot of people go through injuries and dont get this moment. They dont get this opportunity to get back, to reclaim what they once were and what they once had, Cruz said. Just to get this moment again is one of the biggest things for me and one of the biggest obstacles for me to cross, and Im just excited to be here and flourish.The Giants are ecstatic to have him back, and it meant something to see one of their longest-tenured players with that trademark smile on his face.So awesome. He had a rough run the past two years. To see him come through like that at the end, the entire game, its a great feeling, said veteran long-snapper Zak DeOssie, a close friend of Cruzs. Id be happy for anyone, but for him to make that big-time play, its just awesome.Cruz told DeOssie the salsa dance he did in the end zone while wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. pretended to snap a picture was one of the best hell ever do. Cruz told him he put extra pizzazz into it.This came after Cruz found a hole in the Cowboys defense while Manning began to navigate the pocket. Cruz caught the 3-yard touchdown pass and went into full-out dance mode. It appeared so natural it was almost as if hed been practicing.Its in the blood, Cruz said. It doesnt go anywhere. Its like riding a bike.But there were points throughout the past two years (including this summer) when nobody knew if hed ever really have the opportunity to dance in an end zone in a real NFL game. Manning admitted Cruz had a setback in the spring and there was a groin injury that slowed him this summer.The Giants threw Cruz right back into the mix the week of the third preseason game with an eye on this Sept. 11 opener against the Cowboys.We built Victor up to a point where he felt he could play a full game for us, coach Ben McAdoo said. Im sure hes excited. Im excited for him.Cruz played almost every offensive snap for the Giants on Sunday. He caught all four passes thrown in his direction. He scored a touchdown. He danced the salsa. It was a successful return in almost every way imaginable, and it felt great, Cruz said. Even if he had to wait a year longer than he wanted, the return was even better than he imagined.

Sydney FCs A-League winning streak has come to an end but they remain unbeaten this season after a spirited 1-1 draw with Brisbane Roar. White Air VaporMax 2018 .Josh Brillante and Thomas Kristensen scored first-half goals but the two sides couldnt be split after a compelling and controversial clash at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.The crowd of 17,322 was left incensed Sydneys Rhyan Grant wasnt sent off in the 77th minute after he was shown what appeared to be his second yellow card for bringing down striker Jamie Maclaren, who was surging on a counter attack.However, referee Alan Milliner didnt actually book Grant for his first challenge on Thomas Broich in the 59th minute, even though he brought out his card after whistling for the foul.It was the flashpoint of an often niggly encounter between the Sky Blues and the Roar, who played up Queenslands traditional sporting rivalry with NSW by wearing maroon jerseys instead of their usual orange.But they didnt exactly inspire a State of Origin-level performance, as the hosts could have easily been three or four goals down before halftime.Unable to play through Sydneys relentless press, the Roar coughed up the ball repeatedly while trying to play out of defence, with Brillante taking advantage of their sloppiness in the 13th minute with a rocket from 20 metres out.They should have scored again through Bobo and Alex Brosque, who within seconds of each other pounced on stray passes at the back from Brisbane to go one-on-one with goalkeeper Michael Theo.Neither found the target and minutes later, the Roar made them pay by squaring the ledger, completely against the run of play.Tommy Oars 40th minute cross landed perfectly for Kristensen, who used the outside of his foot to curl the ball past the outstretched glove of Danny Vukovic and into the back of the net.Sydney continued to push but couldnt get past Theo, who produced strong saves to deny a Brandon ONeill free kick and a close-range attempt from Ninkovic, before bravely shutting out substitute Bernie Ibini in the dying seconds.Match officials declined the opportunity to clarify the Grant incident after the match.Referees are banned from looking at video replays and Brisbane coach John Aloisi said it would have been poor if Milliner had glanced at the big screen and decided not to award the card.Its worrying if he did do that. Im not saying he did. I will actually go the other way and just think because there was a melee, he forgot to give it, he said.Hes obviously just forgotten. But I dont know how you can forget when its in your hand.Sydney coach Graham Arnold said his side was outstanding and he was only disappointed they didnt take all three points.We had enough chances in the first half to win two or three games, he said.But at the end of the day theyve got a very good goalkeeper who kept them in the game.

Cheap Pirates Jerseys Authentic .Overseas star Bailey was brilliantly partnered by John Simpson in a perfectly paced fourth wicket stand of 114. Ryan Higgins then took 5 for 13 - having only taken his maiden T20 wicket on Thursday evening - to make sure Hampshires chase never got going and give Middlesex back-to-back wins in the competition.Middlesex, after winning the toss and batting, were guided to 182 thanks in the main to a well-paced partnership between Bailey and Simpson.Dawid Malan, on the back of a record, unbeaten 185 for England Lions, was caught and bowled by Ryan McLaren. England one-day skipper Eoin Morgan fell soon after with Liam Dawson taking the catch at mid-on, before Paul Stirling was bowled by Brad Wheal to end the Powerplay 40 for 3.But that kick-started the mammoth stand between Bailey and Simpson, who never looked in trouble, never appeared to need to play the big shots.Former Australia T20 captain Bailey, following a match-winning 55 in the London derby on Thursday night, was the first to reach fifty, from 38 balls. Wicketkeeper Simpson quickly followed to the milestone in a slightly quicker 32 deliveries, helped by a trio of maximums.The partnership stretched from the seventh over to the 19th, when Simpson picked out Joe Weatherley on the midwicket rope. James Franklin and former Hampshire man Bailey, who passed his previous best Twenty20 score of 71, both departed before the close - Middlesex scoring 181 for 6.In a reply which never got going, Adam Wheater struggled to time the ball and his tortured spell was ended when he skied one to Malan, Tom Alsop copied his fellow openers style four balls later.Hampshire captain Sean Ervine and England international Dawson ticked along with a promising 40 stand in five overs. But the hosts were stunted again when Dawson chipped to Lions teammate Malan at short extra cover before Shahid Afridi teed up to James Fuller at deep square leg.Ervine was progressing nicely with a rapid 36 before Higgins slower ball pegged his middle stump back. Morgan managed to keep himself inside the boundary to hold on to Weatherleys slog and the steady flow of wickets continued next ball when McLaren reverse swept to Bailey, off Higgins.Lewis McManus nicked off, Brad Taylor mistimed to short third man and Wheal was castled, with Hampshire losing their final five wickets in just 25 balls.

RALEIGH, N. Sale Air Max Outlet .C. -- Three snaps for Jalan McClendon. Three touchdowns.Just that quickly, North Carolina States already potent offense might have discovered another weapon -- and given other teams something more to worry about.The Wolfpacks backup quarterback rushed for two TDs and threw for a third in a 49-22 rout of Old Dominion on Saturday night.If the plan is to use McClendon as a short-yardage change of pace near the goal line against a tough gauntlet -- one that includes No. 18 Notre Dame, No. 5 Clemson and No. 10 Louisville in consecutive weeks in October -- he wouldnt say so.Thats probably the coachs call right now, McClendon said. Other teams, theyll probably be game-planning (for) that, and well have to call something different. Im not sure what else well see in the future.Starter Ryan Finley was 24 of 28 for 281 yards with three touchdown passes -- two to Jaylen Samuels -- prompting Old Dominion coach Bobby Wilder to call him a star and helping the Wolfpack (2-1) bounce back from a dispiriting loss at East Carolina.It was a tough week, and our guys hung together, coach Dave Doeren said. It wasnt perfect, but it was a lot better. ... We hung together, and were going to stay together.Finley, a graduate transfer from Boise State, beat out McClendon during preseason camp, and in his first two starts, N.C. State averaged 511 total yards and 39 points.The Wolfpack gained 470 yards in this one, with Doeren bringing in McClendon for three goal-line situations.Each of McClendons three snaps in those spots went for TDs: He scored on runs of 1 and 3 yards to help N.C. State take a 14-3 lead, then hit Thaddeus Moss -- the son of former NFL receiver Randy Moss -- with a 3-yard scoring pass.Jalans a great teammate, and he understood why Ryan was in front of him, Doeren said. He was going to have opportunities, and he seized them today, and Im proud of him for that. ... Hes got a great future, he does.David Washington threw two touchdown passes to Zach Pascal and Jeremy Cox had a 65-yard touchdown run for Old Dominion (1-2), which has lost two straight. The Monarchs had just 63 total yards in the first half.We needed to play better offensively in the first half than we did, Wilder said.THE TAKEAWAYOld Dominion: Since the program launched in 2009, the Monarchs have yet to beat a power-conference team. This was their third loss to N.C. State in three seasons, their sixth loss to an Atlantic Coast Conference school since 2013, and theyve yet to hold the Wolfpack to fewer than 38 points. Their next crack at the ACC comes next September when North Carolina visits. One problem: They didnt get much from RB Ray Lawry, who carried nine times for just 14 yards -- well shy of what would have been his third straight 100-yard effort.N.C. State: For much of the night, this didnt look a whole lot like the same N.C. State defense that gave up 445 total yards and 33 points to East Carolina. The final numbers might not look that way, but this effort was better. The Wolfpack allowed 321 total yards, but much of that came in three chunks: A 91-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter prolonged by a fake punt in ODU territory, and two other scoring drives in the fourth quarter after the Wolfpack already had the victory well in hand.NUMBER TO KNOW455.2 -- McClendons passing rating immediately after his short touchdown pass to Moss came on his first attempt. He ended the game with a rating of 222.6 after completing 3 of 4 passes for 31 yards.UP NEXTOld Dominion: The Monarchs begin Conference USA play next week with a visit from a Texas-San Antonio team that probably should have held on to beat Arizona State on Friday night.N.C. State: The Wolfpack have a week off before instate rival Wake Forest visits Oct. 1 to wrap up their manageable early season schedule.THE LAST WORDWe had a mission to get a win -- N.C.

Watt reinjured his back and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.The Texans signed veteran defensive end Antonio Smith to fill Watts open roster spot. Smith played for the Texans from 2009 to 2013, registering 27 of his 47 career sacks with the team. He played for the?Denver Broncos?in 2015.It is unclear if Watt will be a candidate to return later this season. He would be eligible to return to practice after six weeks on IR and to game action after eight weeks, meaning he could be back Nov. 27 against the San Diego Chargers. However, a team source told ESPNs Ed Werder that I do believe that he will miss the season, but with the new rule this year, if he were to be ready in December, he could come off IR. Long shot.The source said that the Texans felt Watt was never right after offseason surgery.Watt missed all of training camp and the preseason after he had surgery for a herniated disk in his back in late July. The three-time defensive player of the year and four-time Pro Bowler played part of last season through the injury, before aggravating it late in the offseason. He also had surgery in January to repair five torn core muscles.The 27-year-old has not been as explosive since returning to the field, although he did have 1.5 sacks and a fumble recovery in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.Watt started all three of the Texans regular-seasonn games so far, including Thursdays blowout loss to the New England Patriots in which he had two tackles and no sacks. Cheap Air Max 90. Watt missed practice Monday, although coach Bill OBrien said he was just getting the day off.Watt has never missed a game in his six-year NFL career.However, there was a time after his surgery in January when he wondered about his future in the NFL.After the first surgery, there were some days there where I really questioned whether or not Id ever be able to play again, he said earlier this month. Just some of the stuff we were dealing with from a rehab standpoint, just the way that the recovery was going early on ... there was a very low point there, and it was tough.Houston selected Watt with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 draft. He has played 83 consecutive games for the Texans despite various injuries, including the torn core muscles and a broken hand last season. He has been a force since entering the league not only because of his pass-rushing prowess, but also because of his uncanny ability to swat down passes. He has 45 passes defended in his six-year career. He has forced 15 fumbles and recovered 13.Watt led the NFL with 17.5 sacks last season and has 76 for his career.The Associated Press contributed to this report.
