faceoff dot off the rush Antworten

CLEVELAND -- Corey Kluber began the season as one of the question marks in Clevelands rotation. Dele Alli Jersey . The right-hander ends May as one of the top pitchers in the American League. Kluber struck out 12 in 7 1-3 innings to continue his dominant pitching in May and the Indians beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Friday night. "Its fun to write his name in the lineup every five days," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He continues to get better and better. Hes got power, movement and command. Hes pretty good." Kluber (6-3) has been a lot better than pretty good. Other than giving up a two-run homer in the fourth inning to Carlos Gonzalez, he was in complete control of the highest-scoring offence in the NL. He recorded his third double-figure strikeout game this season and ends the month with a 4-0 record and a 2.09 ERA in six starts. Kluber, who struck out a career-high 13 on May 4 against the Chicago White Sox, finished the month with 60 strikeouts in 43 innings. The right-hander allowed five hits with one walk and was given a standing ovation by the crowd of 25,066 when he was pulled after retiring the first batter in the eighth. "To do it against that lineup tonight -- thats a very difficult lineup to strike out," Francona said. "Thats as much, or more impressive as anything, to do it against that team." Kluber, who rarely shows any emotion when hes on the mound, downplayed his accomplishments and says he wasnt aware that he leads the AL with 95 strikeouts. "I had no idea, honestly," he said. "I keep saying when you guys ask me that strikeouts are a by-product of making good pitches. Im not going out there trying to strike guys out." Kluber was given several ovations as his strikeout totals rose, but he remained focused on the task at hand. "Im kind of locked in when Im out there," he said. "I dont really notice." Asdrubal Cabreras two-run homer broke a fifth-inning tie. The Indians snapped a four-game losing streak while the Rockies fell to 2-5 on their nine-game trip. Colorado didnt have a hit through three innings, but Corey Dickerson led off the fourth with a double and Gonzalez homered to right-centre on an 0-1 pitch with one out. "It was a changeup, belt high down the middle, it wasnt a good pitch," Kluber said. Rockies manager Walt Weiss, who was ejected in the sixth inning, was impressed. "That nasty breaking ball, and we knew he did coming in, but he commanded it and it was a good one," Weiss said. "It was hard and late and hes on a good run. And he threw well again tonight." Cleveland chased Juan Nicasio (5-3) with a four-run fifth. Michael Bourns single tied the game before Cabreras homer put Cleveland ahead. Lonnie Chisenhall, who drove in two runs, added an RBI double. Kluber struck out the side in the third. He took control after Gonzalezs homer in the fourth. Seven of the next nine outs were strikeouts and he got Charlie Culberson to bounce into a double play to end the seventh. Cody Allen pitched a perfect ninth for his second save. Gonzalez returned to the lineup after not starting Wednesday because of a sore right calf. He fouled a pitch off his leg Tuesday and left the game, and was limited to pinch-hitting duties Wednesday. His home run snapped an 0-for-11 slump, but Colorado has 16 runs in the first seven games of the trip and is 5 for 51 with runners in scoring position. The Rockies frustration boiled over in the sixth when Michael Cuddyer was called out on strikes by plate umpire John Tumpane. Cuddyer angrily argued the call before being pulled away. Weiss continued the argument and was ejected for the first time in his managerial career. Michael Brantley extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a fifth-inning double and has hit in 19 consecutive home games, a Progressive Field record. Jason Kipnis second-inning single snapped an 0-for-15 slump. He returned Wednesday after missing 25 games with a strained right oblique. NOTES: Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado (broken finger) visited doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, who confirmed the diagnosis of Colorado team doctors that he wont need surgery. The plan is to let the finger heal on its own and theres no timetable for his return. ... Indians 3B/C Carlos Santana (concussion) said hes feeling better, but doesnt know when hell resume physical activities. He was placed on the 7-day DL Tuesday. ... Cleveland RHP Zach McAllister (sore back) threw a simulated game Friday and is scheduled to throw on the side Sunday. ... Rockies LHP Franklin Morales faces RHP Trevor Bauer on Saturday. Victor Wanyama Jersey . The top-ranked Williams carried her winning momentum from 2013 into the new season, beating No. 2-ranked Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 7-5 on Saturday to defend her title at the Brisbane International and set the tone for the Australian Open. Hugo Lloris Jersey . The defeat leaves the 41-year-old Nestor to concentrate on the mixed-doubles event after winning 12 straight matches and winning Australian titles in Brisbane and Sydney with two different partners. "This was a little bit of a let down, but all credit to them," said Nestor. http://www.footballhotspurstore.com/Women-Harry-Kane-Tottenham-Hotspur-Jersey/ . -- C.J. Wilson parked his car and laughed while signing autographs for faceless fans who handed bats, balls and cards to the pitcher from the other side of a brick wall.VANCOUVER - Last seasons anaemic power play was one of the big reasons why the Vancouver Canucks missed the playoffs for the first time in six years.Its early, but the man-advantage unit is showing signs of life with the 2014-15 campaign just around the corner.Radim Vrbata scored on the Canucks only power-play chance in Mondays 4-2 pre-season loss to the Arizona Coyotes, giving Vancouver a 4 for 8 success rate over its last two exhibition games.The free-agent signing is starting to mesh with Henrik and Daniel Sedin on the top line, and ripped a shot that got through Arizona goalie Mike Smith midway through the third period to briefly give the Canucks life.I think the more we practice together, the more we play together you learn the tendencies and you feel more comfortable, said Vrbata, who also scored with the man advantage against the Calgary Flames on Friday. I think offensively, it can always be better but its going pretty well.(Points) is whats expected from that line. If were doing that were giving our team a chance to win.Vancouvers power play finished 26th last season but has provided some new looks under rookie head coach Willie Dejardins, and new talent in the form of Vrbata and rookie forward Linden Vey.I think its just the options we have. Every time I get the puck it feels like theres two or three guys open and ready to take pucks to the net, said Henrik Sedin. It feels like every time we step on the ice something is going to happen. Its a good feeling.However that feeling didnt last long Monday as Joe Vitale had a goal and an assist and Smith made 23 saves for Arizona.Brandon McMillan, Shane Doan and David Moss also scored for the Coyotes, who improved to 4-0-2 in exhibition play. Oliver Ekman-Larsson added two assists.Derek Dorsett had the other goal for Vancouver (3-2-0), which got 31 saves from Ryan Miller.They outworked us, and thats a concern, said Desjardins. We have to look at that. We need a better effort if were going to win. Thats what training camps for. Weve got to be ready when the season starts.Tied 1-1 after the first period, the Coyotes struck twice in the second to put the game out of reach. MacMillan made it 2-1 at 10:55 when his shot was stopped by Miller and rebounded in off Vancouver defenceman Luca Sbisa.Doan then stretched the lead to two on the power play with 1:15 left, deflecting home Mikkel Boedkers shot from the point.A lot was made before the game about Desjardins putting former first-round picks Bo Horvat, Hunter Shinkaruk and Nicklas Jensen together on a line. The trio made their first real impact with the score still tied 1-1 early in the second, buzzing around the Coyotes zone but failing to find the mark.Daniel Sedin then had a great chance off a feed from brother Henrik that SSmith handled, before Alexandre Burrows ripped another shot wide of the Arizona goal from the slot. Eric Dier Jersey. .Arizonas Martin Erat almost made it 4-1 four minutes into the third period, firing a shot off the post that stayed out.Horvat, Shinkaruk and Jensen then had another energetic shift but again couldnt get anything past Smith before heading off to a big cheer from the crowd at Rogers Arena.We knew that we were the young guys and we looked to create energy, use our feet, finish checks a€” and I thought we did that, said Shinkaruk. Theres things in our game that could have been better, but I thought all in all it wasnt a bad game.Vrbata, who signed with Vancouver in the summer after five years with the Coyotes, gave the Canucks some hope with nine minutes to go, but Moss sealed it off a big rebound in front of Miller with 1:41 remaining.The Sedin line was really good early. I thought they had lots of good plays a€” theyre dangerous on the power play, said Desjardins. Its just a process of Vrbata finding his spot in that line and working in.Both teams dressed lineups similar to the ones they will go with once the regular season gets going. Missing out for the Canucks were defencemen Dan Hamhuis and Kevin Bieksa, and forwards Zack Kassian, Brad Richardson and Jannick Hansen. Notable absences for the Coyotes included forwards Sam Gagner and Lauri Korpikoski.Vancouver opened the scoring at 4:43 of the first period when Chris Higgins one-timed a shot from the faceoff dot off the rush that Smith only got a piece of. The puck dribbled towards the goal-line and the hard-charging Dorsett poked it home.Arizona tied things at 12:02 on a play Miller might want to have back. The Coyotes flipped the puck out of their zone and the Vancouver goalie decided to stay in his net instead of going out to play it, allowing Vitale to move in and beat him through the pads.I just didnt think I could make it there, said Miller. I didnt want to race out in pre-season and extend myself and tried to play the breakaway.It was the first goal allowed by Miller a€” who also signed as free agent a€” in pre-season after he faced a mere seven shots against in just over 30 minutes of action against the Calgary Flames on Friday.I felt pretty good. A couple tough bounces in the second period (or) its a little tighter game, said Miller. Still a few things to chip off and dial in, but I was happy overall with my awareness in the game.Notes: Canucks defenceman Frank Corrado suffered an upper-body injury in the second and did not return. Dejardins said the team will know more on Tuesday. ... The Canucks play their next pre-season game in Edmonton on Thursday before wrapping up the exhibition schedule on Saturday at home, again against the Oilers.
