NEW YORK - The Blue Jays misery at Yankee Stadium continued with Wednesdays 4-2 loss. Nike Air Max 2017 Black . Toronto is 0-9 in the Bronx this season, with only Thursday afternoons series finale against the Yankees remaining. R.A. Dickey took the loss, tossing eight innings of four-run ball for a complete game. The dagger was a two out, two-run home run by Alfonso Soriano in the eighth, which broke a 2-2 tie. Here are some post-game notes and thoughts: REYES EJECTED Jose Reyes was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday nights game for arguing a called third strike. It marked Reyes first ejection of the season and the 10th time in 2013 a Blue Jays player or coach has been given the heave ho.“For me, to be honest, I looked at it on the video, I thought the three strikes he called on me I thought were balls,” said Reyes. “Hes the umpire. He knows what hes doing back there. Maybe, like I said, I overreacted throwing my helmet down. I never do that but sometimes its just the way stuffs going.”Mark DeRosa replaced Reyes and played second base. Munenori Kawasaki shifted from second to shortstop. ICHIRO GETS 4,000TH PROFESSIONAL HIT Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzukis first inning single on Wednesday was the 4,000th hit of his professional baseball career.“You never want to be the guy that gives up the milestone,” said Dickey. “At least I dont. Maybe some people do. I certainly dont. That being said, what an incredible achievement and the manner in which hes done it is equally as impressive. The longevity, the endurance, the durability.”Dickey was Ichiros teammate in 2008 with the Seattle Mariners. Ichiro had 1,278 hits while playing for Orix in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB – Japan) and has amassed 2,722 hits with Seattle and New York in Major League Baseball. His 2,722 MLB hits are one more than Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig amassed. In 2004, Ichiro set a single season record with 262 hits.“It couldnt happen to a more professional hitter,” said Dickey. IZTURIS HOBBLING Maicer Izturis sprained left ankle swelled as he slept and he was seen limping, unable to place any weight on the heel of his foot, in the clubhouse before Wednesdays game. The injury occurred in the fifth inning of the night cap of Tuesdays double header. Izturis landed awkwardly on first base and he ran out a ground ball. He stayed in the game defensively for one more half-inning but had trouble moving from side to side and was removed in the sixth. The Blue Jays are hoping to avoid putting Izturis on the disabled list but may be left with no choice if there is no appreciable improvement in the near term. SATURDAYS STARTER The Blue Jays still have not named a starter for Saturdays game in Houston. Does the club call up a youngster like Marcus Stroman, who would make his major league debut? How about Sean Nolin, whod be looking to bounce back after his first career major league start on May 24 when he gave up six runs in 1 1/3 innings against Baltimore. Toronto also could turn to a veteran, like Chien-Ming Wang. Manager John Gibbons says he intends to keep Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey on regular rest for the remainder of the season, which means Buehrle will pitch on Sunday and Dickey will open the next home stand, against the Yankees on Monday. TRAVEL TIP If youre a Seinfeld fan and a trip to New York City is in your future, one of the spots you may want to visit is Toms Restaurant. Youll recognize its “RESTAURANT” signage from the shows diner scenes. One thing: If you plan to have lunch at Toms, make sure you have enough cash. The diner doesnt take credit cards. Found that out on Wednesday afternoon. Toms is located on Manhattans Upper West Side at the corner of 112th St. and Broadway.

Ryan Garbutt had a goal and two assists as Dallas snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. http:///...r-max-2017-mens.html . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Anna Korakaki took a deep breath and let it out slowly.She had been one point from an Olympic gold medal, leading 6-0, in the womens 25-meter pistol final on Tuesday but began to choke. She hit a wrong target and missed one completely, allowing Monika Karsch of Germany to draw level at 6-6.Her father and coach, Tasos Korakakis, sitting not far behind, couldnt bear to watch, preferring to look at the floor, his pants, the hands in his lap.Karsch started the seventh five-shot series hitting the wrong target, and Korakaki retook the lead going to the last shot. Korakaki hit, paused, and jumped up and down when she realized she won.Im the happiest person on Earth but I cant find the words in English, in Greek or French to describe my feelings, said the 20-year-old Korakaki, who also won bronze in the 10-meter air pistol.She did admit to becoming a bit stressful after winning the first three series of the final, and knowing gold was virtually in her grasp.And when she teared up on the podium while listening to her national anthem, she said that was about relief and payback.Korakaki said she was close to quitting shooting three years ago, at 17, because she and her father were in an open war with the Hellenic Shooting Federation, particularly in the last two years.She blamed the problem on the behavior and attitudes by people of my federation ever since she made the national team at 14.I cried listening to the national anthem, because at that moment, all the difficulties went through my mind, she said. I really felt like I made it, against everybody, aggainst every hard situation, against everyone trying to bring me down. Nike Air Pegasus Black. Thats why I cried, it was a mental release.That she managed to win a gold and bronze in her first games, Greeces first Olympic medals in shooting in 96 years, she credited to my will, my strength, my motivation from my family, my friends, and hard work.Korakaki was second after qualifying, behind only top-ranked Zhang Jingjing of China. Zhang shot an Olympic qualifying record of 592, beating by one the mark of 2012 champion Kim Jangmi of South Korea.Kim failed by one place to qualify for the eight-women semifinals on a countback. The 2008 champion, Chen Ying of China, also missed out.Nino Salukadze of Georgia, the 1988 Olympic champion in her eighth games, rolled back the years to qualify third, but started badly in the semifinals and couldnt recover.Neither, surprisingly, could Zhang, the world champion. She had to rally late in the semifinals, but managed to make only the bronze-medal match. She hit all five targets in the first series against Heidi Diethelm Gerber, but faded and the Swiss clinched bronze on her second-to-last shot of their sixth series.The semifinals guaranteed a new Olympic champion, and Korakaki, more relaxed after winning the bronze, ultimately earned it. Despite the problems with her federation, shell keep on shooting.Im dreaming of more medals, she said, more European medals, more World Cup medals, and, why not, more Olympic medals.
