ST. Air Max Plus Free Shipping . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Enny Romero was watching Tampa Bays 18-inning win Friday night at home in the Dominican Republic and tweeted he was ready to pitch the following afternoon. Given an unexpected chance, the Rays left-hander made the most of the opportunity on Sunday. Romero combined with five relievers on a three-hitter in his major league debut, leading Tampa Bay over the Baltimore Orioles 3-1. Tampa Bay remained a half-game ahead of Cleveland in the AL wild-card race, and Texas dropped 1 1/2 games behind the Indians for the second berth. "Enny just shows up after he tweets that he belongs here ... so we actually read twitter," Rays manager Joe Maddon said with a smile. "For all our minor leaguers out there, get on twitter and you might end up in the big leagues for the playoff run. Its fun to watch that we can bring up somebody from the minor leagues, under these circumstances, against a very good team, and get that kind of result." Tampa Bay beat Baltimore for the third time in the four-game series. The Orioles fell 4 1/2 games behind Cleveland. "Well have to get little co-operation mathematically, but youd be surprised how quickly the outlook on things change in one days time," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. Dating to the final 11 innings of the Rays 5-4 victory on Friday night, Tampa Bay pitchers limited Baltimore to two runs and 10 hits over 29 innings. "The pitching has been outstanding," Maddon said. "Weve gotten enough hitting. The defence has been great." Promoted from Triple-A Durham earlier in the day, Romero gave up Manny Machados leadoff single starting the game. But that was the only hit off Romero, who walked four and struck out none in 4 2-3 innings. "Very happy to stay here with the Rays," Romero said. "I appreciate the Rays called me." Romero was home Saturday when he got a call from his agent saying the Rays wanted him pitch the next day. He played catch before heading to the airport to catch a flight to Florida. Brandon Gomes (3-1) replaced Romero with two on and two outs in the fifth and struck out Machado. "Enny pitched unbelievable, so it would be a waste to have that not come through with a win," Gomes said. Romero went 11-7 with Double-A Montgomery before throwing eight scoreless innings for Durham on Sept. 2. He also pitched out of the bullpen for the Bulls on Sept. 13 in the International League playoffs. Tampa Bays original scheduled Sunday starter, Jeremy Hellickson, came out of the bullpen Friday night and threw 2 1-3 scoreless innings for the win. Fernando Rodney allowed Danny Valencias single and an RBI double off an overhanging catwalk by Matt Wieters with two outs in the ninth en route to his 36th save. Scott Feldman (5-5) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. "Basically were going to have win out and hope for the best on the other side," Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones. "We battle and we grind, and sometimes, as the saying goes, youre the bug and sometimes youre the windshield. The last couple days weve been the bug so we just have to get back to being that windshield." David DeJesus put the Rays up 1-0 on a leadoff homer in the first, a 10-pitch at-bat. It was his first homer since connecting on June 13 for the Chicago Cubs. Matt Joyce had a sacrifice fly and James Loney hit an RBI single during the sixth that made it 3-0. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria, hitting .263 with 29 homers and 77 RBIs, was a late scratch due to flulike symptoms. He entered in the eighth inning as a defensive replacement. Tampa Bay centerfielder Desmond Jennings, who reached on a bunt single in the sixth, left with left hamstring tightness after running toward second on a foul ball. He was scheduled to undergo an MRI NOTES: Maddon would like to see the wild-card playoff expand from one game to best-of-three. For those worried about making the season longer, Maddon thinks playing a doubleheader during the series could be a viable option. ... Orioles RHP Chris Tillman, who hurt an ankle during Thursdays game against Boston, remains scheduled to make his next start Tuesday. ... The Rays are expected to activate RHP Jesse Crain (right shoulder strain) on Monday. ... Tampa Bay selected the contract of RHP J.D. Martin from Durham to provide additional bullpen depth.

The No. 23 seed at the first Grand Slam event of the tennis season has worked out all the details, from his training regime right down to where hes going to eat dinner. Air Max Plus Canada Wholesale .com) - Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard notched a win, while second-seeded two-time champion Ana Ivanovic, third- seeded Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova and fifth seed Sabine Lisicki all exited the draw at the Generali Ladies Linz tennis event. INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Like most kids growing up near Boston, David Blatt lived and breathed the Celtics. They were his team, the only team. Pressing a transistor radio against his ear, Blatt listened as legendary announcer Johnny Most described how Bill Russell grabbed rebounds and when John Havlicek "stole the ball!" At an early age, he was hooked on hoops. "I kind of had that NBA dream in my ear and in my heart," Blatt said. And now, its back in his life. Blatt was introduced Wednesday as the new coach of the Cavaliers, a team in transition as it prepares to select first in the NBA draft and make a strong run at LeBron James, the soon-to-be free agent who has several other teams making moves to try and get him. Blatt spent the past two decades in Israel, where he developed into a top international coach. Now, after winning numerous titles across Europe and guiding Russia to a bronze medal in the 2012 London Olympics, Blatt is ready to take on the challenge of coaching on pro basketballs biggest stage. It was time to make the jump, and the Cavs helped Blatts overseas leap. "Absolutely its a challenge," Blatt said of his upcoming transition. "But Ive got to tell you, the game is not so different as people think it is. Its a little bit longer here. Perhaps the level of athleticism and speed all around the court is different. But its not like playing baseball and soccer. Its still the same game." Blatt isnt hung up on labels or perceptions. He doesnt consider himself an Israeli coach, European coach or any type for that matter. He doesnt favouroffence over defence. "Im a basketball coach," he said, "someone who through teaching and working with people and getting the most out of my players and staff has always seen the success of the team as paramount." The Cavaliers spent nearly six weeks looking for their third coach in three years before hiring Blatt, who recently resigned as coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv, a squad he led to this years Euroleague title. Cavs general manager David Griffin said Blatt was one of "five or six" candidates who had full-blown interviews and the club contacted as many as 11 coaches. "Hes truly the embodiment of every characteristic we most sought in a coach," GGriffin said. Air Max Plus Canada Clearance. . "Hes a guy who has passion, creativity and intelligence. As a coach, hes able to adjust in ways that make him special because of those things. He lives those things as a man as well. Because of all that, the players all feel him in a very powerful way. David is an authentic leader." The team hired finalist Tyronn Lue as an associate head coach under Blatt. Blatt understands theres a responsibility that comes with being the first at anything. He believes other European coaches are as qualified to coach in the NBA, but hes the one getting the chance. "I know Im carrying the torch, and I hope like hell I dont drop it," he said. "I dont plan to. It does mean a great deal." Blatt was charming, convincing and self-effacing during a 30-minute news conference at Cleveland Clinic Courts. Blatt said he had previous chances to come to the NBA, but the timing wasnt right. "Somebody told me the reason I did it is because I missed Boston lobster and macaroni and cheese," he cracked. "Theres something to that, honestly." Blatt is taking over a team that went 33-49 last season and underachieved for Mike Brown, who was fired on May 12, ending his second stint in Cleveland. Blatt believes the Cavs have the pieces to be a contender, and that its up to him to put them together. And that would be the case in any country. "I find a group of guys that want to be coached, that want to learn, that care about winning," he said. "Those are things I have to emphasize with them, that I have to strengthen and help them understand the right way to do it. "Ive coached enough great players in my life to know when guys are happy playing together and are seeing that doing it the right way brings and fosters the spirit you need to win, it doesnt make a difference where you coach." Blatt feels hes finally where he belongs. He had a great run overseas, but it was time to come back to where he started. It was time to come home. "I was happy and fulfilled in what I was doing," he said. "But I never, for a moment, lost the hope that I would come full circle and make my way back to the places where I grew up and to be part of something that was so much a part of me." Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
