When the teams say every run matters, it's more than cliché. "It's awesome. I'm glad it's here". It was Toronto's first lead of the series, and it would hold. So after Sanchez, aware of his climbing pitch count, suggested the move, the Jays shut him down for 10 days, optioning him to the minors so they could bring up reliever Aaron Loup rather than playing a man short.
The reasons for such a discrepancy were not immediately clear, and Laerke specified that it would be up to Russian Federation to elaborate its plans. Still, expectations remained modest going into the meeting, with Merkel calling the situation in the most populous city in Syria "disastrous".
I don't want to justify my words and compare them against what has been said. "If I ever called a player playing in any other club it would be in a special situation of not playing, and it would be my right to". I never called Neymar , Luis Suarez, Busquets, Iniesta, I didn't call anybody. "He is the best player in history". It will be a good challenge to demonstrate we are still on top by winning.
When Ronda does return to the octagon to face Amanda , 28, it will be more than a year since Holly , 35, knocked "Rowdy" out to take her UFC Women's bantamweight championship.

But it was Liverpool who were more defensive? "I think you are very unfair with Liverpool, because Liverpool had a fantastic defensive performance", he added. Reflecting on a much-improved second half Karius had some kind words to say for his United counterpart, David De Gea. "If he said we won't win the title this season, but next, which I think is what he said at Chelsea, I think most United fans would accept that.as long as he does win it next season".
It turns out it was Liverpool who were the defensive ones. United had a full complement of first-team players in training on Wednesday morning, aside from the injured Phil Jones and regular absentee Bastian Schweinsteiger.

"The fact that it's the other way around and I'm playing against the Eagles, it's definitely not something I expected".

ESPN first reported the fights late Tuesday night. Johny Hendricks (17-5) is coming into this bout with Magny off of back-to-back losses to top opponents.

Chicago had chased goalie Michal Neuvirth (four goals on 16 shots) early in the second period and seemed in command. It took Hossa 1240 games to notch 500 goals and as it stands now he's racked up 1,093 points. Bellemare missed a great chance to get on the board after intercepting a bad cross-ice pass from Chicago, but couldn't beat Crawford.

Arsenal did not have things all their own way, though, and Ludogorets soon began to create chances of their own, with David Ospina being called into action to keep out Wanderson and Jonathan Cafu midway through the half.

He capped off his - and Arsenal's night - with a left-footed volley four minutes later.
