KANSAS CITY, Mo. http://www.nflbrownsgearofficial.com/briean-boddy-calhoun-jersey/ . -- Chris Sale knew he had to pitch his best Sunday with James Shields starting
for the Kansas City Royals. "Indubitably, yes," Sale said. "You know what youre
getting with a starter like James. You have to bear down and do it." Sale gave
up four singles in eight scoreless innings as the Chicago White Sox defeated the
Royals 5-1 in a pitching duel between top starters. Alexei Ramirez and
Tyler Flowers each drove in a pair of runs as the White Sox won the series
finale after dropping the first two games. Sale (2-0) struck out six and walked
one. In his previous four starts against the Royals, the White Sox had backed
him with one run, enough to beat James Shields 1-0 in the 2012 opener. "There
was an energy to Chris coming off the mound," White Sox manager Robin Ventura
said. "Big pitchers do that when you face up against a guy like Shields. He
knows weve lost three in a row and hes going up against Shields and he wanted to
go out and shut them down." Shields (0-1) took the loss in this one, too, giving
up a run on five hits, striking out six, walking none and hitting two batters in
seven innings. "What we saw out there today was two No. 1 starters that were at
the top of their game," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Both of them had their
A-game on the mound. Thats as good of stuff as Ive seen James Shields have. He
had everything working, his fastball at 94-95, a great cutter, a great change, a
great curveball. "Sale was right there with him. He has everything going. Both
starters just pitched a great game, both of them." Ramirezs drove in the games
first run in the seventh when Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar knocked down his
grounder but had no play for Conor Gillaspie at home. Sale allowed a runner past
second only in the third inning, when Lorenzo Cain and Omar Infante singled and
Ramirez committed a throwing error. Sale wiggled out of trouble by retiring
Danny Valencia on a pop up. Cain had two of the hits off Sale. The White Sox
scored four runs in the ninth off Royals left-handed relievers Tim Collins and
Francisley Bueno. The inning included a Flowers two-run single and an RBI double
by Ramirez. Alex Gordon singled home Eric Hosmer in the ninth off Matt Lindstrom
for the only Kansas City run. The Royals won their first replay challenge of the
season when Marcus Semien was ruled safe at first, but it was overturned on a
review that took 68 seconds. White Sox manager Robin Ventura challenged that
Hosmer was out at first to complete a double play in the sixth, but replays
indicated he was safe. Plate umpire Greg Gibson issued a warning to both benches
in the sixth when Infante had to jump out of the way of Sales pitch way inside
after Shields had hit two batters, including Jose Abreu in the top of the
inning. "Im not trying to hit Abreu right there, theres no doubt it," Shields
said. "Weve got a zero-zero ball game. Im not trying to put a runner on base.
There was definitely no intent. I understand they are trying to protect their
players over there, but in that situation Im not trying to hit him. I dont think
theres any reason for any retaliation at all." Notes: White Sox 2B
Gordon Beckham, who is on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, has been
shut down after one game from a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A
Birmingham, still feeling tenderness when he swings. . The White Sox starting
lineup Saturday included four Cuban-born players: C Adrian Nieto, RF
Dayan Viciedo, SS Alexei Ramirez and Abreu. The last team to start four Cubans
were the Indians on April 8, 1969 -- SS Zolio Versalles, RHP Luis Tiant, CF Jose
Cardenal and C Joe Azcue. .The Royals will start LHP Jason Vargas against Tampa
Bay on Monday, while the Rays probable is LHP Matt Moore. .The White Sox will
start RHP Felipe Paulino for the series opener at Colorado. RHP Jordan Lyles
will be the Rockies starter. http://www.nflbrownsgearofficial.com/cameron-erving-jersey/ .The law passed on Friday, in a 128-62 vote in the lower chamber of parliament,

this season.Its been two years since the BC Lions hoisted the Grey Cup and Wally
Buono handed the head coaching reigns to Mike Benevides. Since then the Lions
have entered each season with one of the most talented rosters in the league
before falling short of expectations. Two years is a short time to be sure, and
its not like the Lions cant supply excuses for their shortcomings since 2011 –
Travis Lulays shoulder injury last year – but in the ultra-competitive and
impatient world of professional sports, the pressure is on. Bad teams feel
pressure to be better; good teams feel pressure to be the best. And dont forget
the added burden of a potential home field for the Grey Cup and the three-year
streak of Grey Cup champs winning at home. The Lions were smart in acquiring
veteran leader and “quarterback 1A” Kevin Glenn from the Ottawa Redblacks during
the CFL Draft for the fifth-overall draft pick. The price was a little steep for
a player few figured would actually end up with Ottawa for the upcoming season,
but with Lulays shoulder still a talking point, Glenn provides quality insurance
at the most important position. BC has opted for younger projects at QB behind
Lulay the past couple years but the Glenn acquisition makes sense for a team
that cant get derailed for even a short period of time, should Lulay miss games
– for whatever ailment – this season. Especially with Thomas DeMarcos selection
in the Expansion Draft, Glenn gives the Lions peace of mind at one of their most
worrisome areas for 2014. Another solid move, adding to a position of strength,
was the free agent signing of Jamall Johnson. Johnson returns to BC after five
seasons in Hamilton, his last a down year after being asked to play in the
middle, and joins a frightening linebacking corps that already includes Solomon
Elimimian and Adam Bighill. BCs task in once again entering the year as one of
the most talented teams on paper is replacing receiver Nick Moore and a number
of large bodies on the offensive line. Not to diminish Moores impact, but the
Lions receiving corps still has enough burners, and more importantly, added
Canadian content, that Lulay – or Glenn – shouldnt feel frustrated for lack of
quality targets. The line however, may have to rely on more youngsters than
would be considered ideal. The good news is their young contingent on the
offensive line is talented and the unit is still anchored by perhaps the best
left tackle in the game in Jovan Olafioye. While theyve fallen short of the Grey
Cup the past two years, the Lions still qualified for the postseason those
years, and were just a win away from a return trip in 2012; so it feels strange
to suggest the team enters the season under pressure to do more. That reality is
part testament to how well the Lions organization is run, but as is the case
with all good teams, being good only coounts for so long; greatness sticks. http://www.nflbrownsgearofficial.com/derrick-kindred-jersey/. Like the Argos and Riders before them, look for the Lions to go all out in 2014.
Notes Parting Ways After a long tenure with the Lions as an offensive coach and
coordinator, Jacques Chapdelaine left the Lions early in the off-season, the
coach and team mutually agreeing to part ways. It was certainly a big shakeup on
Benevides staff, getting rid of the offensive mainstay of 10 of the past 11
years. Up and coming offensive mind Khari Jones replaced Chapdelaine as well as
taking on the QB coach role. Expansion Draft The Lions search for a backup
quarterback began anew after the Ottawa Redblacks selected Thomas DeMarco, who
gained solid experience filling in for an injured Travis Lulay In 2013, in the
first round of the Expansion Draft. BC also lost guard Matt Albright and DT
Andrew Marshall to the Redblacks. Free Agency With the least amount of players
to hit the free market, the Lions were one of the least active teams during the
free agency period. They did lose promising receiver Nick Moore to the Winnipeg
Blue Bombers however, but made a splash on the other side of the ball when they
brought back linebacker Jamall Johnson, who last played for the Lions in 2008,
from Hamilton. Retirements The Lions offensive line took a number of big hits
this off-season with the retirements of three big pieces. Veteran centre Angus
Reid was the first to announce his retirement. The 13-year veteran was a
three-time West Division All-Star and one-time league All-Star. Not long after
tackle Ben Archibald retired. The two-time All-Canadian spent the past three
seasons in BC. Then late in the off-season Patrick Kabongo joined the two in
retirement. The nine-year vet was a one-time West Division All-Star. CFL Draft
The Lions traded out of the first round in order to solidify their backup
quarterback situation by grabbing Kevin Glenn from the Redblacks for the
fifth-overall pick. The team had two picks in the second round, grabbing OL
Tchissakid Player from Northwestern State and FB Pascal Lochard from Laval. With
their final five selections the Lions took LB Casey Chin from Simon Fraser in
the third round, DL David Menard from Montreal in the fourth round, WR Alexander
Fox from Bishops in the fifth round, DL Dylan Roper from Simon Fraser in the
sixth round, and RB Guillaume Bourassa from Laval in the seventh round. Khalif
Mitchell Returns One of the most enigmatic players in the league the past few
seasons made his return to BC late in the off-season after a year with the
Toronto Argonauts. Khalif Mitchells talent and impact at his DT position are
unquestionable, but his return to the Lions was surprising after Mitchell
seemingly burned a lot of bridges on his way out of BC a year ago. Lions GM
Wally Buono has said all the right things about Mitchells return so far, noting
the player has matured over the years. Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
