Porcello (20-3) allowed six hits, one walk and two runs. Tanaka (13-4) won his sixth straight decision and recorded his seventh double-digit strikeout game. Red Sox relievers have not allowed an earned run in September, over 14 2/3 innings. The runner was called safe by the umpire, but the call was reversed after a video replay.
But the joy would be short-lived as Liverpool's unfamiliar centre-half Lucas gifted them a foothold in the game. "[But] what about [Adam] Lallana?" That said, only Schmeichel had prevented Liverpool scoring another goal on 26 minutes after Mane played a brilliant one-two with Lallana and crossed to the near post, where a Sturridge shot was superbly kept out by the Leicester goalkeeper.
It earned Bournemouth their first year in the Premier League, which they consolidated by finishing 16th last term, and won Howe the Football League's Manager of the Decade award. Wenger loaned Jack Wilshere to Howe's Bournemouth but insists he expects the England midfielder to be a Gunner again next season. "I am loyal. I love the town and I want to continue that association for as long as possible", said Howe.
Butler acknowledged frustration with a diminished platoon role in Oakland after playing every day most of his career. Last month, Butler went on the concussion disabled list after a clubhouse altercation with teammate Danny Valencia. The addition of Matt McBride as a third catcher also allowed the A's to play Bruce Maxwell and Stephen Vogt as a DH in recent days. Butler will still be owed $10 million in base salary next season and will recover his $10 million from this season.
Wozniacki broke Sevastova in the opening game of the match to immediately set the tone and in the first point of Wozniacki's ensuing service game, Sevastova rolled her right ankle reaching for a serve out wide and it affected her the rest of the way.
Barrett's seven touchdown performance helped the buckeyes start the season on a winning note. The Buckeyes take on Bowling Green in what should be an easy win for Ohio State . Let's move on to Bowling Green , shall we? Throwing an interception for touchdown we don't like that. "I think he was right there with Mike (Thomas)".
That was the timeframe suggested by the club's chairman Peter Coates last week, ahead of Potters and England goalkeeper Butland having the operation on Monday. "We've tried something a little different with him this week just to push him on but he won't be available for the weekend". "He will add a key element to how we want to play and brings something to the table that we haven't had here for a very long time".
Republic of Ireland are playing in their first competitive fixture since reaching the knockout stages of Euro 2016 but it appeared that they could have made a wasted journey to Belgrade due to the wet conditions on Monday afternoon. "I had a second child, a daughter, just a few days ago and I would like to dedicate this goal to her", he told Sky Sports . Serbia , with stars Aleksandar Kolarov and Nemanja Matic missing through suspension, took time to gel ― understandably given there were ...
Undrafted rookie running back Kenneth Farrow and former CFL safety Dexter McCoil both did enough to impress the coaching staff, making the team's final 53-man roster. Ware has very good potential to be the surprise fantasy performer in Week 1. If Te'o and Perryman fill the running lanes and tackle with force, the Chargers should be able to force the Chiefs into passing the football more than they would like.
Wawrinka outslugged Japanese sixth seed Kei Nishikori 4-6 7-5 6-4 6-2 in energy-sapping humidity at Flushing Meadows on Friday to advance to the final. Wawrinka despite some problems at the start of the tournament has added significantly and now shows a really good quality game. While Djokovic would normally be considered the overwhelming favorite, given his past success against Wawrinka , the conditions could play a major factor in who will be lifting the trophy come Sunday night.
It was certainly the weakest performance from Pogba since returning to Old Trafford for a record transfer fee, although most of the players around him were quite bad as well, especially in the first half. After entering the fray as a second-half substitute on Saturday, Rashford was only denied an equaliser against City when his shot deflected in off the Swede who, unfortunately, was in an offside position.
The Padres meanwhile will look to shake off the rust and get back in the win column but they have their hands full here with one of the best offenses in baseball and one of the bets pitchers in the league all wrapped up into one game. Hanley Ramirez widened the Red Sox lead to 6-2 when he opened the eighth inning by hitting his 21st homer on the first Major League pitch thrown by Padres' right-hander Jake Smith .
The Blues dominated the first half with an impressive attacking display and battled hard in the second to hang on for a 2-1 victory, thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho. The 33-year-old Bravo also courted danger by dribbling round Ibrahimovic in the second half, only to let the ball get away from him. "I didn't want to make three changes at half-time because I was afraid in a long 45 minutes something might happen, but if it was a sport in free number of changes and ...
The Jaguars' defense has a lot of size overall, including most of the guys in their secondary. In the preseason, he produced 114 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Nelson missed just four regular-season games in the five-year stretch from 2010-14, and with the exception of 2012, when he battled hamstring problems, his statistical contributions rose each year.
Arsene Wenger was relieved that his Arsenal side managed to find a late goal against what he describes as a good Sotuhampton side. And the points would be secured by Arsenal as they played on despite Koscielny being down in the box, referee Madley allowing them to do so, and Giroud was pulled down by Fonte with Cazorla keeping his nerve to slot home his second penalty of the season.
Miocic added a couple of exclamation-point punches on his unconscious opponent to bring intervention from referee Marc Goddard. Again Miocic with a big flurry of punches as Overeem tries his best to cover up. Overeem is one of the most decorated MMA fighters of all time, but has yet to get his hands on the UFC title. "He's a great athlete, he's tough".
Wawrinka, a former Australian and French Open champion, reached a fourth successive quarter-final in NY with a hard-fought 6-4, 6-1, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3 win over Illya Marchenko , the world number 63 from Ukraine. "It's not that I didn't try", he said. The 25-year-old, once nicknamed "Baby Fed" for his game's resemblance to that of Roger Federer, was in the round of 16 at a major for the first time since the 2015 Australian Open, but was unable to cope with Murray's precision, power and touch.

The 26-year-old is making her own comeback after retiring in 2013 due to injuries. "I know that I can beat everybody, and this is what gives me also a lot of confidence and motivation for going out there and playing with a lot of emotion". Now, I go out there knowing how to win big matches. "Today was a tough match and I was tight in the end and right now I'm in the quarterfinals and previous year the final, so what do I have to say?" I think it helps I played so well here in the past.
Yes, she is. And a two-time Grand Slam champion, too. That also sounds like bad news for the 10th-seeded Monfils, who has lost all 12 career matchups against Djokovic. By the sixth game, the 30-year-old had won just nine points which he managed to nudge into double figures by the end of it. Djokovic has won 19 of 23 previous meetings, but Wawrinka did win their 2015 French Open final for his second Grand Slam title.
The 37-year-old Chicagoan entered the cage vs. 24-year-old Mickey Gall . Punk fell by rear-naked choke to Mickey Gall in his Octagon debut after signing with the UFC in 2014 as he transitioned to mixed martial arts from professional wrestling.
The coaches have raved about Bradford being a quick study, but if they didn't trust Hill to start a game like this there was no point in having him as the backup in the first place. We've got video of them with the designed out-of-the-pocket [plays], but that's not what they're there for. "Just go out there and dominate and ball out".
He added: "We could earlier maybe have had one or two penalties at corners". "It came in the last minute but I think we were aggressive and we were searching for it so in the end we probably deserved a little bit of luck back". The long-serving Wenger, who is under pressure from Arsenal fans to deliver a league title again, was pleased with his side's response to going behind.
Con tutto il rispetto la nostra è superiore a quella del Bologna, ma è sempre il campo il giudice supremo. La squadra, secondo me, ha ampi margini di miglioramento. Nella prima giornata Josef Martínez ha mandato cinque volte un compagno al tiro, più di ogni altro giocatore. Gli ospiti, invece, sono usciti vincitrici dalla sfida contro il Crotone per 1-0, segnando però solo nel finale di gara.
The Serb took a two set lead in less than an hour as Monfils - often one of the games great entertainers - deployed some eccentric tactics, which included bunting the ball back in a listless manor. The Frenchman's odd approach appeared to distract Djokovic , whose own form fluctuated before he completed a 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-2 victory. I stopped moving a little bit.
Marcus Rashford, who broke into the Manchester United first team in February before rising from England Under-20 to senior level under Roy Hodgson and featuring at Euro 2016, was left out of Allardyce's 23-man squad. "All of these factors point towards him being the right choice to lead the team". He told FATV: "The first day [of training] was really good". And the former Everton youngster has said he will be available to Allardyce for the foreseeable future, even if he has set his own ...
Oklahoma State tried to kill the final four seconds by throwing the ball away on fourth down, but the Cowboys were penalized for intentional grounding, which is a loss-of-down penalty. ( 4) OHIO STATE 48, TULSA 3: Malik Hooker and Marshon Lattimore returned interceptions for touchdowns late in the first half, and the Buckeyes (2-0) overcame a sluggish offensive start, a lightning delay and a driving rainstorm to beat visiting Tulsa (1-1).
None were held out. "Games like this, we look forward to". At 6-foot-5 and 245 pounds, Newton absorbs more punishment than the typical QB, in part because he runs the ball a fair amount. "We've just got to treat Cam like a quarterback". "(Newton's) an imposing figure, and sometimes those big hits don't look as bad on a big guy". Neither did the officials on the field or the replay booth.
Stipe Miocic plans on celebrating his first Ultimate Fighting Championship title defence with 20,000 of his closest hometown friends. Overeem connected with a stinging left hand that staggered Miocic before following him to the ground where he applied the choke.
During Liverpool's 4-1 victory over Leicester , you could hear many Liverpool fans chanting "Jurgen Klopp la la la", as a tribute to their boss. "One of our strengths last season was when we lost a match (there was a) very good reaction and I am awaiting a very good reaction in Brugge". Klopp's decision to select a back four featuring two specialist midfield players , Lucas and Milner, had looked a gamble before kick-off and now looked like it might prove disastrous.
Nelson's return will undoubtedly help the entire Packers' offense this season. Second, can receiver Jordy Nelson rebound after missing all of last season? Linebacker Clay Matthews is playing from the edge again, eager to harass opposing quarterbacks.
The Gunners came back from 1-0 down to win 2-1, Santi Cazorla scoring deep into injury-time after substitute Olivier Giroud was brought down in the box by Jose Fonte. "They were a bit surprised by the pace and the commitment of the Premier League [but] they will adapt to that". "We played fantastic. We had the best situations to score and win the game against a very good team", added Puel, who spent several seasons as a player under Wenger when they were at Monaco.
The Mets gave deGrom a week in between starts in hopes the rest would do him good - he was actually slated to get a few more days, but Steven Matz' ailments forced him back into the rotation sooner - so it's unclear when the club may set his next start.
Wawrinka, a former Australian and French Open champion, reached a fourth successive quarter-final in NY with a hard-fought 6-4, 6-1, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3 win over Illya Marchenko , the world No 63 from Ukraine. My level is growing up every day. "I think everything in 2009 is completely the past", Del Potro said. "For sure he has a lot of confidence right now, a lot of matches behind his back.
