The Los Angeles Angels have reached an agreement with Joe Maddon to make him their next manager, the team announced Wednesday.

Maddon is expected to receive a three-year contract in the $12 million to $15 million range, a source told ESPN. He will be formally introduced by the Angels at a news conference next week.

“We are thrilled that Joe is coming back home and bringing an exciting brand of baseball to our fans,” general manager Billy Eppler said. “Every stop he has made throughout his managerial career, he has built a culture that is focused on winning while also allowing his players to thrive. We believe Joe will be a great asset for our club and look forward to him leading the team to another World Series championship.”

DURHAM, N.C. — Joe Girardi has quit as the manager of the U.S. baseball team trying to qualify for the Olympics before it played a single game.

Girardi said Wednesday that he is leaving to pursue a major league managing job. There are seven current openings.

He will be replaced by Scott Brosius, who had been slated to be Girardi’s bench coach. Brosius, the MVP of the 1998 World Series with the New York Yankees, became the senior director of baseball development for USA Baseball earlier this year.

Willie Randolph will shift from third base coach to bench coach, and Ernie Young from the first base coaching box to third.

The U.S. will train Oct. 21-28 at the Kansas City Royals’ complex in Surprise, Arizona, then start competing Nov. 2-4 at Guadalajara, Mexico, as part of a group that includes the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the Netherlands.

The top two teams advance to a qualifying round in Tokyo from Nov. 11-16. The winner of that group advances to the six-nation Olympic field, which already includes host Japan and Israel, and the second- and third-place teams advance to another qualifying event.

Baseball is returning to the Olympics after being dropped for 2012 and 2016. Cuba won the gold medal in 1992, 1996 and 2004, the United States in 2000 and South Korea in 2008. Next year’s Olympic baseball tournament is to be played from July 29 to Aug. 8 at Fukushima and Yokohama, Japan, as part of the Tokyo Games.

Players on Wholesale MLB Jerseys 40-man rosters are not eligible to play for the U.S. in qualifiers. The 28-man U.S. roster includes several top prospects, including Wholesale Los Angeles Angels Jerseys outfielder Joe Adell, Wholesale Chicago White Sox Jerseys infielder Andrew Vaughn and Wholesale Atlanta Braves Jerseys outfielder Drew Waters.

Vaughn was the third overall pick in this year’s amateur draft.

Maddon, 65, is returning to the Angels organization — with which he spent the first three decades of his career — after managing the Wholesale Chicago Cubs Jerseys for five seasons and leading the franchise to its first World Series title in 108 years in 2016.

“I could not be more excited to come back home and manage this great organization,” Maddon said in a statement. “I’d like to thank Arte Moreno, Billy Eppler and John Carpino for giving me the opportunity to add another chapter to my Angels career. I was lucky enough to be a part of the first Angels team to win a World Series title and I look forward to the opportunity to bring Angel fans their second championship.”

The three-time Manager of the Year had been linked to the Angels job ever since the team fired Brad Ausmus on Sept. 30, a day after Maddon and the Cubs announced they were parting ways.

The Angels finished 72-90 during Ausmus’ only season as manager, and the franchise has made the playoffs just once in the last 10 seasons — getting swept by the Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys in the 2014 American League Division Series.

The Angels also interviewed veteran managers John Farrell and Buck Showalter and Padres hitting coach Johnny Washington for the job, but Maddon, who was expected to be a valued candidate for other managerial openings around the majors, was the choice. He kept a home in Long Beach during his 14 seasons away from Anaheim, and he has fond feelings for the organization that gave him his start.

Maddon signed with the Angels as an undrafted catcher in 1975, and he spent the next 31 years working at almost every level of the organization as a player, coach and manager. He served as a big league coach under five managers, and he had two stints as the Angels’ interim manager.

His last six seasons with the team (2000-05) were spent as Mike Scioscia’s bench coach, a span that included the Angels’ championship season in 2002. Maddon left to manage the Wholesale Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys for nine mostly successful seasons beginning in 2006. He led the team to its only World Series appearance in 2008.

Maddon signed a five-year, $25 million deal with the Cubs prior to the 2015 season, and the team finished above .500 in each of his five seasons. His .582 winning percentage ranks second in franchise history behind Frank Chance’s .664 (768-389 from 1905 to 1912).

In 2016, Maddon guided Chicago to 103 regular-season wins and then a long-awaited World Series title. He was credited with changing the culture and creating a loose atmosphere for his players during a pressure-filled time when they were picked by many to win it all.

Only Bill McKechnie (Reds, Pirates and Cardinals) and Dick Williams (Red Sox, Athletics and Padres) have led three different franchises to World Series appearances.

Maddon inherits a franchise in turmoil following an Outside the Lines report that team employees allegedly were aware of Tyler Skaggs’ opioid use prior to the pitcher’s July 1 death and didn’t inform the commissioner’s office. The Angels could face significant sanctions from Major League Wholesale Baseball Jerseys if it finds that the allegations were true.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan and Jesse Rogers and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Fake MLB Baseball Jerseys For Sale Near Me

NEW YORK — CC Sabathia left it all on the field, but it wasn’t enough for the Wholesale New York Yankees Jerseys, who lost a lot more than the fourth game of the American League Championship Series in an 8-3 defeat at the hands of the Houston Astros on Thursday night.

In what could have been his last appearance in pinstripes, Sabathia’s knee buckled and his shoulder seemed to give out after he hurled his third pitch to George Springer while trying to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning.

Sabathia, who along with outfielder Brett Gardner is one of the two remaining members of the 2009 World Series championship team, limped off the field with tears in his eyes. He exited alongside head trainer Steve Donohue, serenaded by a standing ovation from the Yankees’ faithful.

It might have been the last time the 39-year-old left-hander, who dealt with chronic right knee problems all season and most recently a sore left shoulder that kept him off the AL Division Series roster, would throw a pitch at what has been his home ballpark for over a decade. Sabathia announced in February that 2019 would be his 19th and final season in the majors.

“[CC] leaves it all on the field. I don’t know the severity of what’s going on with him, but you can never say that man never gave his all,” outfielder Aaron Judge said. “Every single time he went out there, you had to rip the ball or rip his jersey off to get that man off the mound. He got everything out of that arm; that’s a warrior right there. That’s why he’s been a leader of this team for so many years, and that’s why he has so much respect around the game, and it was tough to see; he left it all out there.”

NEW YORK — The quiet spaces between actual games in the American League Championship Series have increasingly become filled with topics related to pitch tipping, sign stealing and other aspects of gamesmanship, much of it pointed at the Wholesale Houston Astros Jerseys. Finally, after one accusation too many, Astros manager AJ Hinch’s patience with the subject seems to have worn thin.

“I think it’s kind of funny,” Hinch said during a teleconference Wednesday, when Game 4 between Houston and the New York Yankees was postponed because of rain. He seemed less amused Thursday.

“We talked about this the other day,” Hinch said. “And in reality it’s a joke. But Major League Baseball does a lot to ensure the fairness of the game. There’s people everywhere. If you go through the dugouts and the clubhouses and the hallways, there’s like so many people around that are [responsible for security].

“And then when I get contacted about some questions about whistling, it made me laugh because it’s ridiculous. And had I known that it would take something like that to set off the Yankees or any other team, we would have practiced it in Spring Training. It apparently works, even when it doesn’t happen.”

The final straw for Hinch seems to be regarding accusations by the Yankees that the Astros were using whistles to signal pitch calls to their batters in Game 1, a 7-0 New York win. A source told that MLB has looked into the whistling charge and found no evidence of cheating. Hinch says that the scenario that was being looked into was virtually impossible given the security measures that the league has in place for the postseason.

“The game in question, we got three hits and no runs,” Hinch said. “And so nobody heard it. You guys have audio, video, people in places, and nothing — and there’s no evidence of anything.

“So, to the Yankees, there’s nothing bad going on. Pitch tipping is a little bit of a different story. If you don’t want us to know the pitch is coming, don’t do something that demonstrates what pitch you’re going to pitch or what you’re going to throw. But they’re doing the same thing.”

For his part, Yankees manager Aaron Boone addressed the whistling issue by saying, “We’re confident that we’re buttoned up in every possible way and vigilant. I really don’t think it’s an issue.”

However, while not referring to the Astros specifically, Boone did say there are limits to how communication within games should be shared.

“There’s boundaries,” Boone said. “Yeah, we could have a conversation for days on that. So, yeah, there’s boundaries. There’s things you’re not allowed to do and things that are perfectly within the context of the game.”

Astros pitcher Justin Verlander was asked if his club was simply good at getting into opponents’ heads. He chuckled and said, “Maybe.” However, he said that when it comes to deciphering the ocean of data and video captured from the games in baseball these days, everyone has the same tools.

“I think Wholesale MLB Jerseys has done an incredible job this year,” Verlander said. “There’s been someone in the video room every game of the season. Somebody is there full time. You’re not allowed to have a live feed anywhere in the stadium that the players have access to. They check all that. I think that’s been an incredible step forward for MLB to go against the trend of all this technology that’s out there.

“They did what I think was the best thing possible to resolve whatever issue, paranoia teams have. Obviously it didn’t resolve the paranoia — it’s still out there for every team.”

For Hinch, the shame of it is that accusations such as the ones that have surfaced this week detract from a dynamic matchup between 100-win teams with a trip to the World Series on the line. He, for one, is done with the issue.

“There’s nothing going on other than the competition on the field,” Hinch said. “The fact that I had to field the question before a really, really cool game at Yankee Stadium is unfortunate. But we can put it to rest. That will be the last question I answer about pitch tipping or pitch stealing.”

Left-handed reliever Zack Britton, who spent eight seasons with the Wholesale Baltimore Orioles Jerseys before being traded to New York last year, reiterated the reputation Sabathia carries throughout the league.

“I played against CC longer than I’ve played with him so I know the respect that opposing teams have for him,” Britton said. “He’s done it in the game, but obviously off the field, too. He’s really respected throughout the game, and guys know the type of career he’s had.”

Sabathia entered in the eighth inning to face his second batter of the postseason after reliever Adam Ottavino gave up a leadoff double to Alex Bregman, and Yuli Gurriel reached on a fielding error by first baseman DJ LeMahieu. The inning unraveled with a second fielding error by infielder Gleyber Torres, a hit batsman and, just when Sabathia looked to get out of the inning against Springer, the injury happened.

LeMahieu, who had an uncharacteristic two-error game for the first time in his career, had to hold back his emotions in talking about Sabathia coming off the mound.

“Real tough. It was a tough night, then that happened. I feel for C,” he said. “From my perspective, this year in particular he’s given it everything he’s got, and I know he’s pitched through a lot, and it was tough to watch.”

Said outfielder Aaron Hicks: “It’s tough man, he’s a great person, a great player. He’s gonna be a Hall of Famer. To see a guy like that go out like that is, is not the way you want to see it. He means a lot to this team, a lot to his organization, and for him to go out like that, it’s not something you want.”

Of the many things that befell the Yankees on Thursday night, their defensive mistakes proved costly against an Astros team that did everything right.

It was one thing for the Yankees to lose, and another one to lose in such an excruciating manner. The Yankees committed four errors, two of them in that eighth inning, the fourth time in franchise history they’ve had four errors in a postseason game, and the first since Game 2 of the 1976 ALCS (five errors).

And while Yankees’ pitchers did give up two three-run home runs, one by Springer off starter Masahiro Tanaka and one by shortstop Carlos Correa off usually unfailing reliever Chad Green, the offense had another subpar performance.

The Yankees might have opened the ALCS with a bang, but they are close to finishing it with a whimper.

Their offense, which averaged 5.4 runs per game at home during the regular season, fifth best in the AL, combined for four runs over the past two games at Yankee Stadium. When including the two runs in their 3-2 loss at Minute Maid Park in Game 2, the Yankees have scored a total of six runs in the past three games of the series.

The Yankees’ first and only win of this ALCS came in Game 1, when they scored seven runs, which they haven’t been close to since.

“You got to have a short memory in Wholesale Baseball Jerseys , especially after a game like that,” Judge said. “That’s the biggest thing. We can’t sit around here and mope around about this game or the past couple of days, we have to refocus and refuel and get ready for the game tomorrow.”

With their season on the line and Houston holding a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series, the Yankees will have lefty James Paxton versus Astros ace Justin Verlander on the mound for a do-or-die Game 5. Paxton told ESPN that Sabathia would be his inspiration when he takes the mound Friday.

“Every time he’s on the mound, he gives us everything he’s got, and that’s what he did tonight. CC has had an amazing career, and it was too bad to see him get hurt like that,” he said. “But it’s also just a testament to just the heart he has for this team, going out there and giving us everything he’s got until the last pitch.”

“I have to go out there and do my thing,” Paxton added. “I have to attack these guys and go to battle for my team, and give everything out there, just like CC did.”

Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys guard Bogdan Bogdanovic is weighing a maximum contract extension from Sacramento or entering free agency after the season.

Bogdanovic told The Sacramento Bee on Tuesday that he has received a four-year, $51.4 million extension offer but has not decided whether he will sign it.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Kentucky coach John Calipari came out strongly against the idea that the Cheap NBA Jerseys would consider expanding beyond its current draft format of two rounds.

Speaking at the SEC Tipoff event on Wednesday, Calipari argued that additional rounds wouldn’t be for the NBA but rather to stock its developmental arm, the G League.

“If anybody supports more rounds in the draft, those more rounds are to get kids to go to the G League, you do not care about college basketball or you’re trying to ruin college Cheap Basketball Jerseys,” Calipari said.

Calipari’s comments come a day after Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski suggested more rounds in the NBA draft were a potential likelihood with the G League’s increasing impact on the league.

Calipari, who signed a 10-year, $85 million extension with Kentucky this summer, said he supports players’ ability to go directly to the NBA out of high school but is nonetheless wary of the G League. He said the developmental league’s current setup helps those who are playing “their way back into the league” as opposed to those who are trying to enter it for the first time.

“After two years they don’t perform, what? The NBA is going to take care of them and hire them? No. It’s entertainment. You’re done,” Calipari said.

Calipari stressed college as a more stable option.

“If they’re not going to the NBA, if we’re really about young people, we should encourage them to go to college,” he said. “And the reason is their way out is through education. Their way to break through to the American dream is education.”

Calipari also addressed the new California law that will allow college athletes in the state to collect money for endorsements beginning in 2023. He challenged a room full of reporters on whether they’d read the law line by line before saying that he hadn’t, either.

“But I do know that now there’s a law in New York, there’s one in Florida. How about this: Kentucky’s going to have a law,” he said. “That tells me there’s going to be 40 laws in 40 different states. Then the tea leaves tell me there’s one place this is going to get solved and it’s Congress. It’s not by the NCAA and it’s not by the states.”

While Calipari has long positioned himself as a supporter of college athletes having ownership of their name and likeness, he said he was worried about the next steps.

“There are all kinds of consequences that have to be addressed, and I’m coaching my team,” he said. “That’s what I’m doing, so I’m not spending much time on it.”

“They did, but we will wait to see,” Bogdanovic told the newspaper of the offer. “Maybe we will sign tomorrow. Maybe we sign in a month. Who knows? We will see.”

Bogdanovic, who averaged 14.1 points, 3.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game for the Kings last season, will play 2019-20 on the final season of a three-year, $27 million contract.

The 27-year-old told the Bee that he wants to stay in Sacramento but would not rush into signing a deal.

Bogdanovic would be a restricted free agent in the 2020 offseason.

LOS ANGELES — Anthony Davis scanned the halftime stats Wednesday night in his debut playing at Staples Center in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform and noticed an uneven equation: He had only six points on 2-for-4 shooting, yet the Lakers were up 26 points on the Golden State Warriors.

He told LeBron James it was the first time in a while that has happened for him.

“It takes a load off me,” Davis said after the Lakers’ 126-93 win — their third in three tries against the Warriors this preseason. “It feels good knowing that you don’t have to do much, everybody has a role, and when you have guys all over the board who can score the basketball, you don’t need to do everything every possession.”

LOS ANGELES — Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys forward Draymond Green believes that poorly run organizations don’t get nearly enough blame when top draft picks don’t pan out.

Green, who has developed into one of the league’s most respected players after being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Warriors, went on a passionate defense Wednesday night of Marquese Chriss when the topic of his Cheap NBA Jerseysviability was brought up. Chriss has bounced around the league since being the eighth pick in the 2016 draft.

“Yeah, I don’t think there was ever a doubt that he was a legitimate NBA player,” Green said after the Warriors’ 126-93 preseason loss to the Cheap Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys. “I think everyone was just kind of waiting on him to turn that corner. He seems like he’s turning the corner. I think he’s been in some pretty tough situations. No one ever blames the situation, though. It’s always the kid. No one ever blames these s—ty franchises.”

Chriss was selected by the Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys before being dealt to the Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys. He spent two seasons with the Suns before short stints with the Cheap Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys and Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys. Chriss signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Warriors just before training camp and has had a strong preseason and opened a lot of eyes within the organization. Although nothing is official yet, Chriss appears to have earned a spot on the Warriors’ 14-man, hard-capped roster as they continue to deal with injuries to their big men.

“[People] always want to blame the kid,” Green continued. “It’s not always the kid’s fault. He’s getting older now, so he’s not a kid anymore. But he came into this league as a kid, but it’s never the organization’s fault. It’s always that guy. So I’m happy he’s gotten the opportunity show what he can really do because it’s a prime example. But no one will still blame any organizations. It’ll always be the kid’s fault, and it will be the next kid that comes in’s fault and the next kid after that. So I’m happy he’s gotten this opportunity.”

The Phoenix Suns have missed the playoffs in each of the past nine seasons. They haven’t had much success in the draft in that time.

“Because you’re friends with them,” Green said. “And you want all the access from them. So the way you guys will come out and bash players, you don’t do that to organizations because it’s all about access and protecting your future. No one really protects these younger guys’ future because it’s all about what can I do for myself. So no one talks about the organizations. It’s always just the player, player, player because they can’t do shit about it but be young and their name carries no weight and then be out of the league and onto the next thing. So that’s what I think it is. No Phoenix writer is going to bash the Phoenix Suns. But let’s be frank about it: When he was there, the organization was terrible. Everything was going wrong, but he get blamed like he’s the problem. When he left, ain’t nothing go right. So that’s my take on it.”

Warriors guard D’Angelo Russell, who was selected with the second pick in the 2015 draft and dealt with his own ups and downs with the Lakers before finding a better rhythm with the Cheap Brooklyn Nets Jerseys the past two seasons, agreed with Green’s assessment.

“It’s the business of the league,” Russell said. “It’s all I got to say.”

The Warriors are hoping that Chriss, at 22 years old, can provide some stability as the rest of their injured big men get healthy. Both Kevon Looney (hamstring) and Willie Cauley-Stein (foot) have been sidelined with injuries throughout camp, giving Chriss more of an opportunity to shine. Warriors coach Steve Kerr is hopeful that Looney will be ready for next week’s season opener against the Cheap Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys, but Cauley-Stein is expected to miss several more weeks. Omari Spellman missed Wednesday’s game after tweaking his back, but that injury isn’t believed to be serious.
He might not have needed to, but Davis did plenty just the same, finishing with 8 points, 8 assists, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks in his first game action since spraining his right thumb in the first quarter of a game against the Brooklyn Nets in China last weekend.

“He has seen multiple defenders for seven straight years in New Orleans. He is able to read the defense. He can create for himself any time,” said James, who led L.A. with 18 points and 11 assists in 25 minutes. “There are not many guys in our league that can affect the game the way AD does. He can score, rebound and pass. He just does it at a high level.”

L.A.’s offense was sharp all night, racking up 33 assists on 49 made field goals as it shot 59.8% from the field, including 50% from 3 (15-for-30).

Four other Lakers scored in double digits, led by Avery Bradley with 18 points on 7-for-9 shooting (4-for-5 from 3). Dwight Howard scored 13, JaVale McGee scored 12 and Quinn Cook scored 16 points in 15 minutes off the bench, playing for the first time this preseason because of a calf strain.

Lakers coach Frank Vogel says he believes that nights like Wednesday will continue for James and Davis during the season, with each of them leaning on the other to reduce their workloads.

“It doesn’t have to always go through LeBron like it has with teams past, and it doesn’t always have to go through AD,” Vogel said. “Quite frankly, even when those guys are out, I love the role players that we have and their ability to carry the load as well. Whether it’s having two lob threats, and playing the spread game. We’ve got a number of shooters out there that can make you pay when we force help, and there’s a lot of experience on our club, so hopefully the usage and workload will be spread out.”

James was asked how he felt about Davis easing his responsibilities as he enters his 17th season months away from his 35th birthday.

“My perspective, personally? It sounds good. It sounds good,” James said. “I saw a stat earlier today where I have 7,000 miles more than Vince Carter or something like that. He’s like seven years older than me.”

Not that James is complaining.

“I’m born to have workload,” he said. “It is who I am, both on and off the floor.”

In less than a week, that workload will intensify, with the start of the regular season against the LA Clippers on Tuesday.

The Lakers are inviting what comes next.

“We are just playing together, playing for each other,” Davis said. “It’s going to be a fun year, the way we are moving the basketball, the way we are playing defensively, helping each other out. It is going to be fun. We know it takes all of us to win. We are trying to set a standard right now.”

NEW YORK — Aaron Hicks returned to the Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys starting lineup Tuesday for the first time since Aug. 3, and Giancarlo Stanton remained out for the second straight game when the AL Championship Series resumed with New York and Cheap Houston Astros Jerseys tied 1-1.

Hicks took over in center field and hit ninth against Houston’s Gerrit Cole in New York’s 4-1 Game 3 loss. Previously sidelined by an injured flexor near his right elbow, Hicks pinch hit for starting left fielder Cameron Maybin in Game 2 and grounded out leading off the 10th inning. He then moved to center.

The Cheap Los Angeles Angels Jerseys could face significant sanctions if Major League Baseball determines that team employees were told of Tyler Skaggs’ opioid use prior to his July 1 death and didn’t inform the commissioner’s office.

Eric Kay, currently on paid leave as the Angels’ communications director, told federal drug enforcement agents last month that two team employees, including his former supervisor, Tim Mead, were informed of Skaggs’ drug use but did not take action. Two sources familiar with the DEA investigation told Outside the Lines about Kay’s statements to federal agents, which Kay’s attorney, Michael Molfetta, then confirmed.

Under MLB policy, any team employee who isn’t a player is obligated to inform the commissioner’s office of “any evidence or reason to believe that a Player … has used, possessed or distributed any substance prohibited” by MLB.

The policy says commissioner Rob Manfred could fine the club up to $2 million, and it gives him discretion to suspend an employee or ban him or her from MLB for life. An MLB source told Outside the Lines that Manfred’s office never received such notification about Skaggs. MLB officials declined to comment.

Despite Kay’s statements to federal agents, an Angels spokesperson said Saturday that the team was never aware of Skaggs’ drug use.

“We have never heard that any employee was providing illegal narcotics to any player, or that any player was seeking narcotics from him,” Angels spokesperson Marie Garvey said in a statement Tuesday. “The current and former employees that are being accused of knowing this behavior have categorically denied that assertion. The Angels maintain a strict, zero tolerance policy regarding the illicit use of drugs for both players and staff. Every one of our players must also abide by the MLB joint drug agreement.”

When asked why the statement doesn’t address that Kay, the team’s communications director, was an employee who knew of Skaggs’ use and didn’t report it to the league, Garvey declined further comment.

In addition to a potential ban from baseball, Kay could face criminal charges after admitting to authorities that he provided Skaggs with oxycodone for years and sometimes snorted crushed pills with the pitcher.

Skaggs was found dead in his Southlake, Texas, hotel room July 1, having asphyxiated on vomit. He was 27. An autopsy found oxycodone, fentanyl and alcohol in his system.

Kay’s addiction is long-standing, his family and attorney have said. His mother, Sandy, told Outside the Lines that her son started abusing opioids a few years after his father died in 1998.

Kay told DEA agents that in 2015, the two men worked out an arrangement in which Skaggs would give Kay money to buy oxycodone for both of them, and Kay would obtain pills from a dealer.

Kay told agents that he told Mead in 2017 that Skaggs used opioids. In addition, Kay told investigators about a second Angels official who knew of Skaggs’ use. Kay’s mother and his wife, Camela, told Outside the Lines that on April 22, while Eric was in the hospital following an overdose, he received a text from Skaggs seeking drugs. Sandy was visiting her son in the hospital at the time, alongside his wife and Mead. Sandy told Outside the Lines she saw the texts and told Mead that the team needed to intervene.

Mead left the team in June to become the president of the National Cheap Baseball Jerseys Hall of Fame and Museum. He told Outside the Lines on Saturday that neither Eric Kay, his family nor anyone else ever told him that Skaggs used opioids.

A source familiar with MLB policy said that Manfred’s office has only media accounts to go on right now and will have to make a judgment as to whether Mead or Kay and his family are telling the truth. The source would not speculate on how much the Angels could be fined, but said it would be “more serious” if someone high up in the organization had been told.

The source said Cheap MLB Jerseys is not currently conducting its own investigation and is instead waiting for the DEA to finish. The source also said Angels officials and attorneys are not sharing information with Manfred’s office because they are concerned that such communications could be subpoenaed by the government.

Limited by injuries to 18 games during the regular season, Stanton homered in the opener and missed Game 2 because of a strained right quadriceps.

“It’s not the best, but I’m able to hit,” Stanton said Tuesday. “We’re at least that far right now. … Time is not on my side right now. Doing what I can.”

Manager Aaron Boone said Stanton probably would be on the injured list if this were the regular season.

“Kind of called G in right when he got here and just said we’re going to stay away today,” Boone said. “He’s going to get outside and move around a little bit more today — feel like he would be a hitter-off-the-bench option today. And then we’ll kind of see where we are again moving forward, kind of day by day here.”

Stanton said he was encouraged by his pregame workout.

“I just moved around for the first time right now; it’s really going to be a game-time decision,” he said.

Rain is forecast for Wednesday in New York, which could push Game 4 to Thursday.

Brett Gardner moved from center and replaced Stanton in left. Asked what he expected from Hicks, Boone said “a couple homers, walk” and smiled.

“The big question mark is, he hasn’t played in a couple of months, so that’s the challenge,” Boone said.

First baseman DJ LeMahieu lead off, followed by right fielder Aaron Judge, Gardner, designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion, second baseman Gleyber Torres, shortstop Didi Gregorius, catcher Gary Sanchez, third baseman Gio Urshela and Hicks in center. Luis Severino was on the mound.

Information from ESPN’s Marly Rivera and The Associated Press was used in this report.

WASHINGTON — The game was essentially over in the first inning. With chants of “Let’s go Nats!” echoing from the first pitch, and then chants of “Let’s go Corbin!” as Nationals starter Patrick Corbin mowed down the Cardinals with three strikeouts to begin the game, and then “M-V-P!” chants as Anthony Rendon stepped up with two runners on, the Nationals never let the Cardinals breathe. They never let them breathe the entire series.

The Nationals ambushed the Cardinals with a seven-run first inning — a ridiculous amount of action packed into 21 pitches that included six hits, a sacrifice fly, a sacrifice bunt and two horrific defensive miscues — and held on for a 7-4 victory to complete a sweep in the National League Championship Series and reach the first World Series in franchise history. The Cardinals got the go-ahead run to the plate in the eighth inning, but never led for a single inning in the four games.

It was complete domination, with the vaunted Nationals rotation leading the way as the Cardinals hit just .130. The four Nationals starters — Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and Corbin — allowed five runs in 26.2 innings, three of those in the fifth inning off Corbin in the clinching game. It means for the first time since 1933, when the Washington Senators played the New York Giants at old Griffith Stadium, the World Series will be played in the nation’s capital. The Nationals, born as the Montreal Expos in 1969 and residents of D.C. since 2005, become the 29th franchise to reach the World Series. Only the Cheap Seattle Mariners Jerseys have never reached one.

Back in May, the odds of that happening were long. The Nationals stumbled to a 19-31 start through May 23 and owned the second-worst record in the National League.

NEW YORK — Cheap Houston Astros Jerseys ace Gerrit Cole did not have his best stuff against the potent Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys offense in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday. He put up nothing but zeros anyway.

Cole went seven often-laborious innings in Houston’s 4-1 win, striking out seven and walking a career-high-tying five batters. But he held New York to just four hits over his seven scoreless frames, extending his streak of starts without a loss to 25, dating back to May 22. That’s the fifth-longest streak without a loss in big league history. But this one wasn’t easy.

“Intense,” Cole said. “Had to battle tonight. I thought their offense did an excellent job working some counts. Fell behind a few guys in a few of the early innings and put us in a tough position [where] we needed to make some pitches, and fortunately we did. Got away with a few mistakes, obviously.”

The Astros took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and reclaimed the home-field advantage they lost when the Yankees won Game 1 7-0 at Minute Maid Park. Cole improved to 3-0 in the postseason with just one run allowed in 22⅔ innings — a 0.40 ERA. His 32 strikeouts during the playoffs are the third most for a pitcher in his first three outings of a postseason, behind Bob Gibson (35, 1968) and Cliff Lee (34, 2010).

“I think he’s the best pitcher in baseball right now,” Astros manager AJ Hinch said. Then remembering Cole’s co-ace in the Astros rotation — Justin Verlander — Hinch added, “His competition is right next to him in the clubhouse. They’re certainly a good pair.

“Obviously, I’m biased to my guys. But Gerrit is locked in. And to see him do it on the big stage in a playoff game with the magnitude of this game, it was pretty awesome.”

And yet Cole struggled with his command and pitch count for much of the outing. All five of his walks were issued with two outs. The Yankees got multiple runners on base against him in four of his first five innings, stranding nine runners in the process. The five free passes matched the career high he set on June 18, 2018, against the Cheap Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys.

Cole ended up throwing 112 pitches, tied for his third-highest total this season, before turning the ball over to the Houston bullpen.

“I actually think the beginning of the game he had a hard time finding his stuff and finding his tempo, his rhythm,” Hinch said. “He was still getting through his outing, made some really big pitches, had some pressure on him. Then once he found his curveball, it was pretty lights out.”

Cole got Didi Gregorius on a grounder to second with the bases loaded to end the first. He struck out Aaron Judge with two on to end the second. He retired DJ LeMahieu on a fly ball with two on to end the fourth.

But the closest the Yankees game to finally putting up some runs against Cole came in the bottom of the fifth. With two on and two out, Gregorius lifted a high-arching fly ball to right field that backed Astros outfielder Josh Reddick to the fence. But the ball settled into Reddick’s glove, keeping the Yankees scoreless.

“I initially wasn’t that worried, and then I started to get a little worried when Reddick was kind of drifting back,” Cole said. “But he pulled up and the blood flow just kind of relaxed a little bit. Like I said, thank God he didn’t pull it more.”

Cole’s catcher, Martin Maldonado, was asked about the righty’s stuff and command and rated the stuff “a 10″ and said that despite the walks, the Yankees deserve some credit, too.

“That was a pretty good lineup,” Maldonado said. “It’s not like we’re facing a s— lineup. They take some good at-bats, put some at-bats together, foul off a lot of pitches. That’s what they did the whole game, from the first at-bat to LeMahieu to the last at-bat.

Cole, 29, went 20-5 with a 2.50 ERA and 326 strikeouts during the regular season, building a strong case for the AL Cy Young Award, with Verlander likely his main competition for the honor. His record during his loss-free streak improved to 19-0.

For all the gaudy numbers, it’s Cole’s resolve and resourcefulness that most impress his teammates.

“That’s one of his best qualities,” Houston third baseman Alex Bregman said. “When he doesn’t have a pitch or have command or doesn’t have something else, he figures out how to get the job down. We all can learn a lot from that.”

The Yankees led the American League with 943 runs during the regular season and entered the game having scored 30 runs in their five postseason games. And they still didn’t get to a pitcher having an ace’s version of an off night. It’s a harrowing prospect for the Bronx Bombers, knowing that if the series goes to six or seven games, they’ll have to face Cole again, only with the season on the line.

“It goes without saying that anytime you can target another day for him to pitch, it feels pretty good,” Hinch said, before reminding everyone that the series is far from over. “I think there’s a lot of baseball left to play before that factors in.”

“I don’t think we paid too much attention to our record,” Rendon said after the game. “We knew where we were at one point, but we knew where we wanted to go. The season wasn’t over and back then we were upset, but it was still the first half of the season. You don’t win the division or the World Series in the first half of the season.”

There were rumors that manager Dave Martinez could lose his job and even that Scherzer could go on the trade block if the Nationals didn’t turn things around. According to FanGraphs, their playoff odds on that date were 22.2%. Their odds of reaching the World Series: 3.9%.

“It wasn’t by design to get 12 games under .500 and try and battle ourselves back, but we earned 12 games under .500,” president of Cheap Baseball Jerseys operations Mike Rizzo said. “But then we also earned about .720 ball the rest of the way.”

The Nationals didn’t fire Martinez. They kept Scherzer. The rotation got on a roll and the offense started clicking. Trea Turner was out from April 3 to May 17. Rendon had played just one game between April 21 and May 7 (and still ended up leading the majors in RBIs). Juan Soto was hitting .246/.358/.435 on May 20, but the 20-year-old super sophomore hit .295/.414/.587 the rest of the way.

To a man, the players stressed the importance of the veteran leadership on the team.

“We knew we were going to be the oldest team in the league,” Scherzer said. “Everyone said that was a negative. We looked at it as a positive. I’m one of the old guys. Us old guys can still play. I think the older guys bring a lot of value to the clubhouse. The experience we bring, the emotions we bring, all that helps.”

After May 23, the Nationals went 74-38, tied with the Dodgers for the best record in the NL (the Astros went 74-37). That was their first comeback. They won 93 games and hosted the wild-card game against the Brewers. That was the setting for comeback No. 2: Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the eighth, they rallied for three runs against Brewers closer Josh Hader to win 4-3. That led to comeback No. 3: They trailed 2-1 in the division series to the Dodgers before Scherzer won Game 4 and then trailed 3-1 in the eighth inning in Game 5 when Rendon and Soto smacked home runs on consecutive pitches off Clayton Kershaw to tie the game. Howie Kendrick’s grand slam in the 10th would win it.

The Nationals, tough-luck losers in several playoff series in recent years, were finally over that hump of winning a playoff series. Rizzo, the team’s general manager since August 2009, has guided the franchise for more than 10 years and eight consecutive winning seasons.

“I think every year we’re going to the World Series,” he said on the field after the trophy presentation. “We’ve been in the playoffs five times in eight years. We’ve won more games than any team in the majors except the Dodgers in that time. So every year we head to spring training expecting to win the World Series. Get to the playoffs and you’ve got a puncher’s chance.”

The Nationals didn’t give much of a chance to the Cardinals in the NLCS. Sanchez took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in Game 1. Scherzer took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in Game 2. Strasburg struck out 12 with no walks in Game 3. Corbin struck out 12 in just five innings in Game 4. The Cardinals did fight back and loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth, but Daniel Hudson got Matt Carpenter on a hard grounder to second base. Hudson then closed it out with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Only three teams previously had been 12 games under .500 and reached the World Series: the 1914 “Miracle” Boston Braves, the 1973 Mets and the 2005 Astros.

Martinez had a heart procedure in mid-September — a cardiac catheterization — after feeling chest pains. Before the game he mentioned that doctors had told him to sit a little more during games. “It’s tough to do, but I’m doing it, and it’s helped a lot,” he said.

As the National League championship trophy was presented, Martinez looked to his team behind him: “These guys right here cured my heart. The heart feels great.”

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — In the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Cheap Los Angeles Rams Jerseys have suffered a string of injuries that could cause depth concerns at several positions.

On Monday, Rams coach Sean McVay announced veteran cornerback Aqib Talib will be placed on injured reserve because of fractured ribs and left guard Joe Noteboom will undergo season-ending surgery after tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee.

Safety John Johnson III has a right shoulder injury. He will seek further testing and opinions, but it could sideline him indefinitely.

“This is a challenging time,” McVay said. “But it’s not something that you’re going to let be deflating.”

Rams running backs Todd Gurley and Malcolm Brown are considered day-to-day, McVay said, ahead of their Week 7 matchup against the Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys.

Gurley was inactive last Sunday in a 20-7 loss to the 49ers because of a left thigh contusion, and Brown, who started in Gurley’s place, was slowed during the game because of an ankle injury.

Talib will be sidelined for at least eight weeks before he is eligible to return from IR. Each team can activate only two players from IR.

A 12th-year pro in the final season of a two-year, $19 million contract, Talib did not practice last week and was inactive 49ers, after suffering a rib injury in a Week 5 loss to the Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jerseys. Last season, Talib also was placed on injured reserve after he suffered an ankle injury in Week 3 that required surgery. He returned in Week 13.

Cornerback Troy Hill started seven games in Talib’s absence last season and started again last Sunday. A fifth-year pro, Hill finished with four tackles and a pass deflection. He is expected to maintain the starting role with Talib out.

Defensive end Michael Brockers said the defense would “take a big hit in our leadership,” in losing Talib, who plays in a secondary that includes safeties Eric Weddle and Johnson and cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Nickell Robey-Coleman.

Noteboom’s injury leaves the Rams thin on the offensive line.

“That’s a big loss,” McVay said about the first-year starter. “He made a lot of progress in the early stages of this season.”

Offensive guard Jamil Demby replaced Noteboom after he was sidelined against the 49ers, but McVay said the starting position would be evaluated moving forward.

“We’ll look outside and see if there’s maybe some guys available to add some depth, but we’ll fill the starting spot from inside,” said McVay. “Jamil has had a chance to play a lot of snaps, and David Edwards is a guy that we have a lot of confidence in, so those are things that we’re going to work through.”

The Rams selected Demby from Maine with a sixth-round pick in 2018. He played throughout the preseason and started Week 3 when right guard Austin Blythe was out because of an ankle injury.

Edwards is a rookie who was selected in the sixth round from Wisconsin.

Johnson, a third-year pro who has two interceptions this season, appeared to injure his shoulder in the first quarter against the 49ers, but he returned later in the game. He finished with four tackles.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Cheap Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys and linebacker Myles Jack helped keep utilities on for several elderly Jacksonville residents this month.

Per JEA’s official Twitter account, Jack and the Jaguars’ one-time donation was enough to pay electric and water bills for 31 elderly customers who were unable to pay their bills. The amount donated was not released, but JEA also tweeted out a photo of a letter that Jack wrote to those he helped.

“I’m blessed to play the sport I love for a living, but I know that many individuals are less fortunate and may struggle from time to time with their monthly bills,” Jack wrote. “I want to do my part to support other members of the Jacksonville community.

“This week I made a financial contribution to help keep the lights on and the water running for you and others in our city. The Jaguars agreed to match my contribution so we could double the number of homes and families we could help. We hope it gives you temporary relief through whatever struggles you may be facing.”

Thank you to @MylesJack and the @Jaguars for their generous one-time donation to help pay the utility bills of some of our elderly customers who were unable to pay their bills. Through their generosity, they kept the lights on and water running for 31 customers. #DUUUVAL

Jack, the Jaguars’ second-round pick in 2016, signed a four-year, $57 million contract extension in August that includes $33 million guaranteed.

RENTON, Wash. — Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the team expects second-year tight end Will Dissly to miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury “unless something miraculous happens.”

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Sunday that the Seahawks feared a torn Achilles for Dissly, who went down in the second quarter of their 32-28 win over the Cheap Cleveland Browns Jerseys. Carroll did not have any update on Dissly’s test results Monday but continued to assume the worst.

“Really unfortunate that we lose Will Dissly, who has been a fantastic part of our team,” he said. “Just a young guy, but he’s made a big impression early on all of us and we’re going to miss the heck out of him as he recovers from an Achilles injury.”

Losing Dissly put something of a damper on a come-from-behind victory that pushed the Seahawks to 5-1 for only the third time in franchise history. They’ll have defensive tackle Jarran Reed back from his six-game suspension as they try to get to 6-1 at home against the Cheap Baltimore Ravens Jerseys.

‘Turnover Thursday’ carries over for Seahawks, keys 5-1 start
It’s the second serious injury in as many years for Dissly, who tore his patellar tendon in Week 4 of his rookie season. A fourth-round pick out of Washington last year, Dissly caught four touchdowns in Seattle’s first five games this year to lead all Cheap NFL Jerseys tight ends. His six touchdowns in his first eight career games were tied for the most by a tight end since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. He entered Sunday with 23 catches for 262 yards, having emerged as one of Russell Wilson’s go-to options in the passing game in addition to being a strong run-blocker.

“We talked last night in the locker room,” Carroll said. “His attitude was incredible. He’s talking about 2020 already and [saying], ‘You can count on me’ and ‘I can’t wait to get working.’ Just an amazing attitude. It was the attitude that took him thorough the past rehab, and you hate to get good at something like that, but he’s prepared to take this on and he’ll do a fantastic job and will beat all of the time frames that he’s faced with and will do a great job returning.”

With Dissly headed to injured reserve, Luke Willson and Jacob Hollister are the only true tight ends the Seahawks have on their 53-man roster. George Fant serves as a de facto tight end but started Sunday at left tackle while Duane Brown was sidelined because of a biceps injury. Carroll said Brown and right guard D.J. Fluker, who was also out Sunday due to a hamstring injury, are both day to day. He added that if Brown can’t play Sunday against Baltimore, he’d likely be back for the following week at Atlanta.

The Seahawks also have veteran tight end Ed Dickson on IR. He’s not eligible to play until the game against the Falcons in Week 9, by which point he’ll have missed the requisite eight games.

“He’s working really hard,” Carroll said of Dickson, who injured his knee over the summer. “He’s doing everything. He’s running and lifting and doing all that, all that he’s allowed to do. What will be telling is when he finally can come back on the field, can he do the football moves and the Cheap Football Jerseys regimen and respond and be OK with that. He’s working to get ready right now, so we’re very fortunate to have a chance to have a guy like Ed come back to us with not much of a space in there without Will. In the meantime, we’re going to count on our guys.”

Reed’s six-game suspension officially ended Monday, allowing him to return to team headquarters for the first time since the season began. The Seahawks will get a roster exemption allowing him to practice this week before he’s activated to the 53-man roster, but that will have to happen before Sunday’s game.

Carroll said Reed, who’s coming off a 10.5-sack season, will play against the Ravens, but it’s not clear how much.

“He’s like a kid at Christmas time, he’s so excited to be back with his teammates and be back with us,” Carroll said. “It seemed like it went kind of fast to us. It didn’t for him. I asked him specifically that. It seemed like it took forever. He’s been such an integral part of our club. It’s great to have him back in the locker room. His play is exceptional, too. I don’t know what to tell you about how it’s going to go. I haven’t seen him on the field yet. I know he worked really hard from everything he said to stay abreast of his conditioning and all of that. He looks good and strong and all, and we’ll just have to wait and see how he handles it.”

Carroll expects running back Rashaad Penny to be back to full speed Wednesday after he missed the Browns game with a hamstring injury.

McVay said the second opinion that Johnson will seek will determine if he is available Sunday or if he will miss extended time.

If Johnson is sidelined, backup safety Marqui Christian, a fourth-year pro, will start in his place.

The Rams, coming off an NFC championship and a Super Bowl LIII appearance, are 3-3, and they have lost three straight for the first time since McVay took over as coach in 2017.

The Rams will play their next three games away from home over a month-long period, including matchups against the Atlanta Falcons, the Cheap Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys in London and the Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys.

“I trust that we’re going to be one of those teams that people seem to think that things aren’t going that well, but I think our guys are continuing to believe,” McVay said. “They’re staying the course, and we’re going to see this thing through.”

Cheap Carolina Panthers Jerseys quarterback Cam Newton’s foot injury has healed well, and he is expected to be ready to practice after the team’s bye this week, a league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Kyle Allen, an undrafted free agent, has gone 4-0 as the starting quarterback in Newton’s absence.

PHILADELPHIA — The Cheap Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys released linebacker Zach Brown Monday, just three days after he made unflattering comments about former teammate Kirk Cousins.

Multiple teams are expected to be interested in Brown’s services, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

His level of play is believed to be the primary factor behind the move, though his recent comments didn’t help his cause.

When asked about Cousins on Friday, in advance of the Eagles’ game at the Cheap Minnesota Vikings Jerseys, Brown said: “I think every defense is going to want that guy to throw the ball. For me, that’s probably the weakest part of their offense is him. Everything else is good. They’ve got a good running game, probably one of the best in the league. They have real good receivers. You just want them to pass the ball. You want Kirk Cousins to get it in his hands.”

Eagles’ Pederson: ‘We’re gonna win’ vs. Cowboys
Cousins threw four touchdown passes against the Eagles in a 38-20 Vikings win.

After the game, Brown was asked to comment on Cousins.

“I’m here to talk about the game. Not about that,” he said.

Pressed further, he said: “Any other questions besides about Kirk Cousins?” before finally relenting and saying: “He did a good job. He played good. Hats off to him.”

Brown, who was signed to a one-year deal by the Eagles in May, has played significant snaps in all six of Philadelphia’s games this season, posting 29 tackles, two tackles for loss and a pair of passes defensed.

Brown, 29, has 661 career tackles for Tennessee, Buffalo, Washington and Philadelphia.

His departure likely means increased roles for Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nate Gerry. It is also likely that the Eagles will sign a linebacker, especially with starter Nigel Bradham dealing with an ankle injury.

Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys defensive end Stephon Tuitt tore a pectoral muscle and will need surgery that will put him out for the rest of the season, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Tuitt sustained the injury in Sunday night’s 24-17 victory over the Cheap Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys that improved Pittsburgh to 2-4.

Losing Tuitt is a huge blow to a Steelers defense that’s been dominant in the past couple of weeks. In the midst of his sixth season with the Steelers, Tuitt set the tone for the team’s productive pass rush early. He recorded 3.5 sacks — tied for second on the team — in the first three weeks of the season, including 2.5 against the Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jerseys.

He was on his way to outpacing his mark of 5.0 sacks in 2018.

“I think a lot of times it is him winning his battles,” defensive coordinator Keith Butler said after the Seattle game. “Sometimes he gets around holes and gets upfield and just tears everything up.

“He’s getting better and better every week for us.”

After Tuitt’s monster Week 3 performance, Butler said his defensive end was reaching the prime of his career after a couple of up-and-down seasons with the Steelers during which he sometimes tried to do too much.

“A lot of times it takes them two or three years to learn what’s going on with a defense and where my help is and what I can do to take advantage of things and the more I can anticipate some offenses and what they are doing, the more I can anticipate, the faster I can play and the more plays I will make,” Butler said. “And I think he is getting there.”

In his last healthy game against Baltimore, Tuitt racked up eight tackles. He had 22 on the season.

Tuitt played just five snaps before suffering the injury, opening up more playing time for defensive end Tyson Alualu. The 10-year vet figures to have an even more prominent role with Tuitt out for the season. He has seven tackles this season and a sack, recorded against the Cheap Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys.

Allen has completed 65.6% of his passes for 901 yards with seven touchdowns, no interceptions and a 106.6 quarterback rating, which ranks fifth in the Cheap NFL Jerseys behind those of Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Deshaun Watson.

Newton struggled through the first two weeks of the season before a mild Lisfranc sprain shut him down. He completed just 56.2% of his passes for 572 yards with one interception in losses to the Cheap Los Angeles Rams Jerseys and Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys.

The Panthers have said they will make a quarterback determination when Newton is healthy, a decision that looks like it will be coming soon.

Cheap Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys winger Jordan Martinook will undergo a core muscle surgery for the second time this year, general manager Don Waddell announced Thursday.

The latest procedure is set for Friday. Martinook is expected to miss six to eight weeks to recover.

He also underwent a procedure on a core muscle during the offseason.

Martinook, 26, has one assist this season during the Hurricanes’ 4-0-0 start. He had a career-best 15 goals with five game winners last season but was in and out of the lineup during the playoffs due to injuries.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — On a night the Cheap Buffalo Sabres Jerseys top scorers were held in check, Kyle Okposo and his line of grinders came to the rescue.

Okposo set up both goals in regulation before Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt scored in the shootout to help Buffalo match its best start to a season in 10 years with a 3-2 win over the Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys on Friday night.

“I’ve never seen a bench cheer so much for another line having success,” coach Ralph Krueger said of how his so-called energy line scored goals 2:33 apart spanning the second intermission to stake Buffalo to a 2-0 lead. “To see all that hard work, the grinding they’ve been doing the first five games paying off was so big tonight.”

It might have been even more satisfying had the Sabres not squandered a two-goal, third-period lead for a second consecutive game. Buffalo blew a 4-2 lead in an eventual 5-4 overtime win over Montreal on Wednesday.

“We just sat back a little bit,” said Okposo, who had the primary assists on goals scored by Johan Larsson and defenseman Marco Scandella. “We just have to find a way to continue to play our game and continue to stay aggressive.”

Zemgus Girgensons also had two assists on a night Buffalo’s potent power play finished 0 for 4. Linus Ullmark finished with 41 saves, with two more in the shootout.

Buffalo improved to 4-0-1 and opened with three straight home wins for the first time since 2008-09.

Mike Hoffman forced overtime by scoring with 11 seconds left. Left open in the right circle, he waited patiently before snapping a shot over Ullmark’s left shoulder. Evgenii Dadonov had a goal and assist, and Jonathan Huberdeau had two assists for Florida (1-2-1).

Much of the credit goes to goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, who made 30 saves, including several in the final 1:45 of overtime.

First he lunged up to get a piece of Eichel’s shot on a breakaway. Then, Bobrovsky kicked out his left pad to stop Mittelstadt, who was set up at the right post.

“It’s a huge point for us,” Bobrovsky said. “Obviously, we could clean up some things, but I thought the boys stepped up and showed character.”

Bobrovsky was coming off a 6-3 loss to Carolina on Tuesday, when he was yanked after allowing four goals on 14 shots through the first period.

Eichel scored on Buffalo’s first shootout attempt by banking in a shot off the right post. After Florida’s Vincent Trocheck and Aleksander Barkov failed on their attempts, Mittelstadt sealed the victory by backhanding a shot inside the crossbar.

Ullmark was impressed by how the Sabres didn’t let up after surrendering the lead.

“We never hesitated. We stayed calm on the bench. No one got upset or anything like that,” he said.

And he blamed himself for allowing Hoffman’s goal, which came with Bobrovsky pulled for an extra attacker.

“I should’ve had that. He’s known to go top glove,” said Ullmark, who stopped 40 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss at Columbus on Monday night. “It’s my job to stop the puck.”

Larsson opened the scoring with 31 seconds left in the second period just as Hoffman finished serving a cross-checking penalty.

Okposo drove up the right wing and drew two defenders while entering the Panthers’ zone. Okposo then slipped a pass to an open Larsson, who roofed a shot in and then went soaring over Bobrovsky, who was a split-second late in getting across with 31 seconds left in the second period.

Buffalo’s power-play unit entered the game having converted eight of 15 opportunities.

Scandella put Buffalo up 2-0 by jumping into the play and converting Okposo’s pass into the left circle by scoring 2:02 into the third period.

The Sabres had several point streaks come to an end, including defenseman Rasmus Dahlin’s four-gamer, in which he had a goal and six assists, and rookie forward Victor Olofsson, who combined for four goals and an assist in his first four games.

The Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys will be without star center Evgeni Malkin “longer term” because of a lower body injury, coach Mike Sullivan announced on Monday. The coach said that Malkin’s season is not in jeopardy.

The 33-year-old Malkin left the second period of Pittsburgh’s 7-2 win over Columbus on Saturday after taking a hit to the boards while in an awkward position.

Malkin is the third Pittsburgh forward now out indefinitely with a lower body injury. Nick Bjugstad also was injured in Saturday’s game, though Sullivan said Malkin will be sidelined “a little bit longer than Nick.”

The Penguins opened the season without Bryan Rust, who was placed on long-term injury reserve after being hit with a slap shot in the final preseason game.

Malkin scored Pittsburgh’s lone goal in a season-opening loss to the Cheap Buffalo Sabres Jerseys. He tallied 21 goals — his lowest total since 2012-13 — in 68 games last season as the Penguins were a disappointment in the playoffs, swept by the Cheap New York Islanders Jerseys in the first round.

However, a day before Malkin was injured, Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford had praised him and projected a bounce-back season. “Geno worked very hard this summer physically and mentally, and he’s in a good place right now,” Rutherford told ESPN in an interview on Friday.

The Penguins are trying to retool on the fly, seeking to become a younger and faster team and maximize the window they have left with Sidney Crosby, 32, and Malkin. Pittsburgh added five new players this offseason, and six players joined the team last season. One of Pittsburgh’s big summer moves was trading away Phil Kessel, who often played on Malkin’s wing, to the Cheap Arizona Coyotes Jerseys. Kessel scored 174 points over the last two seasons.

After a winless start to the regular season, the Cheap San Jose Sharks Jerseys are hoping an old friend named Patrick Marleau can bring some stability.

The team on Wednesday signed the 40-year-old Marleau, who is the franchise leader in games (1,493), goals (508) and points (1,082). The deal is for one year with a $700,000 cap hit, which is the league minimum.

The signing will necessitate a roster move, as Cap Friendly had the Sharks with just $7,837 in cap space without Marleau on the roster.

Sharks GM Doug Wilson said that Marleau’s agent, Pat Brisson, asked him to keep them in the loop if the Sharks needed to add a veteran player. “We had several conversations where he shared his desire and dream to return to the Sharks,” Wilson said.

The forward last played for the Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys , finishing last season with 37 points in 82 games — the 10th straight season in which he didn’t miss a game.

But his $6.25 million annual average salary was too much for the cap-strapped Leafs, who traded him to Carolina. The Hurricanes made the move in order to buy out the last year of Marleau’s contract, which netted them a first-round pick in 2020 (or 2021, if Toronto is in the lottery this summer).

Marleau had skated with former Sharks teammate Joe Thornton in the run-up to the season, and there was speculation that he could rejoin San Jose. But Wilson dismissed that notion in the offseason, citing a collection of younger players the Sharks wanted to give ice time and saying the franchise was in a different place than it was when Marleau left for Toronto in 2017.

Perhaps the Sharks’ frustrating start prompted an early shakeup. San Jose started the season 0-3-0, mustering only three goals scored to 12 against. The team lost three forwards to free agency in the offseason: wingers Joonas Donskoi and Gustav Nyquist, and center Joe Pavelski, the team’s captain who left a leadership void in the dressing room.

Wilson said that the team’s record wasn’t the motivating factor, but that the team’s injuries and lack of veteran depth were. San Jose was going to be without winger Marcus Sorensen against the Cheap Nashville Predators Jerseys on Tuesday.

“We stay very committed to what we’ve started the year with, which is integrating all the young players into the organization. But there are realities you have to deal with,” Wilson said. “While we have a lot of depth, this is an opportunity to add a veteran into our group to give us some veteran depth that’s versatile, understands how we play, and is very accepting of the role that [coach] Pete DeBoer may need on different nights.”

Marleau captained the Sharks from 2003 to 2009.

Rutherford said he entered this season looking to change the culture of his team and regain some urgency to win.

“Last season, the team never had that total team togetherness,” he said. “I think some of it came from players being content. I don’t blame them for being content — there’s been some good success here over the last four or five years — but you can’t be content to be successful going forward. So that had to change.”

The Penguins (1-1) host the Cheap Winnipeg Jets Jerseys on Tuesday night.
