The defending AL champions made only 76 errors all season, the lowest total in the league.

“The whole night, we made it hard on ourselves to win,” manager Terry Francona said.

After preventing a three-game sweep with a 1-0 win Sunday night, the wild-card Yankees will start CC Sabathia against his original team in Game 5 on Wednesday. Indians ace Corey Kluber gets the ball in a rematch from Game 2, when he was hit hard by New York.

“It’s hard to imagine giving it to somebody better,” Francona said. “We’re looking forward to it.”

The winner faces Houston in the AL Championship Series after the Astros finished off Boston in four games Monday to win their ALDS.

Nobody expects you to pick up the phone and survey every member of a team’s fan base in order to figure out which players they’re suddenly sour on, or who has played their way into darling status. But a quick shorthand can indeed be taking a look at jersey sales from the past week, , as reported by Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Certain sudden surges in sales are ones that are expected. For example, Mitchell Trubisky moves into the top five in sales among offensive players this week, which makes a ton of sense since he made his NFL debut — taking over the helm of the Bears offense from Mike Glennon — on Monday night, at home, in Chicago.

“I think [Farrell] has done a great job,” Dombrowski said before Cheap Vintage Jerseys the Cheap UK Basketball Jerseys playoffs began. “He’s a tough guy. He’s a smart baseball man.”

In time, the Red Sox will decide if Farrell is still the right man to lead them onto the field.

Ben Roethlisberger won’t let interceptions change game

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger plans to keep throwing aggressively downfield, despite a career-worst five interceptions Sunday.

Roark called the experience of pitching at Wrigley “surreal” and knows he will have to channel his emotions as much as possible — especially with the Nationals facing elimination.

“(You’ve got to) hold the nerves in, hold the anxiousness and all that stuff in, and just let it come and let it happen,” Roark said on Monday. “And that’s what you’ve got to let it do.”

The Nationals, who have scored seven runs in three games, will have to produce more if they hope to extend their season. Washington’s only run Monday was set up two Chicago errors.

“We know (Game 4 is) right around the corner, and our back’s against the wall,” Nationals manager Dusty Baker said after his team’s Monday loss, “so we’ve got to get them tomorrow. We’ve got to get those hits, and hopefully (the Cubs) don’t.”

Arrieta dropped his only decision against the Nationals this year and is 1-2 with a 5.48 ERA in nine career starts against Washington.

Like Nationals ace Max Scherzer, who no-hit the Cubs for the first 6 1/3 innings on Monday, Arrieta will make his first start of the postseason after using a few extra days to Cheap Baseball Jerseys Kids strengthen his hamstring. Arrieta hasn’t pitched since Sept. 26, and he missed 2 1/2 weeks after straining Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys the hamstring during a start on Sept. 4.

As engaged as Falvey and Levine were, they drew a bold line when it came to on-field decisions, which Molitor appreciated.

“I’ve never felt meddled in, in terms of how I ran a game, my pitching staff, who I decided to play on a given day,” Molitor said. “I was given total freedom to do that. And I think that’s important for a manager and his staff to have those decisions stay within the clubhouse.”

The Twins did part ways with pitching coach Neil Allen, but Molitor said he expected the rest of his coaching staff to return next season. The Twins also announced that Jeremy Zoll, a 27-year-old from the Los Angeles Dodgers, was hired as the new director of minor league operations. He replaces Brad Steil, who is moving to director of professional scouting.

Baker said he didn’t want to put an extra man on base “at that point in the game. … We thought Perez could do the job — and he did the job. It’s just that he found a hole.

“That ball is kind of in never-never land out there,” Baker added, almost wistful, a moment later, “between three merging players on our team.”

That kind of luck is nothing new for Baker, at least not during his three-year managing stint in Chicago. He was at the helm when the Cubs took a three-games-to-two lead against the Marlins in the 2003 NLCS, only to have a fan named Steve Bartman stick out his glove trying to catch a foul ball — and everyone knows how that turned out.

Baker took some heat for not trying to steady his team while there was still time. The Cubs lost that game and the next one and he has been booed on occasion.

“I’ve got a bunch of homies here, so I’ve got some backup,” he Cheap College Jerseys laughed before the game. “I feel very safe wherever I go. I mean it’s always nice to come to Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys Chicago. I’ve enjoyed coming here for years and years.”

Jeff Green highlights preseason with huge dunk on Ian Mahinmi

For the briefest of moments Sunday, the Cleveland Cavaliers had 13 players on the court while the ball was in play in their preseason game against the Washington Wizards.

Don’t blame Cavs coach Tyronn Lue for a mass substitution gone awry. Blame Jeff Green.

The backup forward’s left-handed dunk over Washington’s 6-11 center Ian Mahinmi in the second quarter caused Cleveland’s bench to lose its collective mind for a moment and spring forward from their seats in delirious celebration.

And one of the first decisions that must be made is the fate of manager John Farrell.

Farrell has guided the Red Sox to a World Series championship and three AL East titles (and two last-place finishes) in five seasons at the helm, and he is the only manager in franchise history to win back-to-back division crowns. But he’s also entering the final year of his contract, and after the Sox were beaten soundly in consecutive AL Division Series, ownership and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski must decide if a new voice is needed in the manager’s office.

Justin Verlander outpitched Chris Sale in a relief role reversal of aces, and the Houston Astros advanced to their first AL Championship Series, rallying past the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Monday in Game 4 of their playoff matchup.

Both teams are 4-1. The Eagles come flying in with growing confidence Cheap Bike Jerseys after a dominating performance in whipping the Arizona Cardinals 34-7.

“You don’t really have time to dwell on your past success,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. “I look at it as the maturity of the football team, the experience of the football Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys team. They Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys know what it takes to stay focused. They know what it takes to stay grounded. It’s my job to keep Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys them grounded, keep them focused.”

Browns coach Hue Jackson: No sugarcoating ‘horrible’ skid

The Cleveland Browns’ losing ways have reached historic proportions, and coach Hue Jackson wasn’t shying away from it Monday.

“I don’t like my record any more than you do or anybody does,” he said a day after a 31-7 loss to the visiting Cincinnati Bengals dropped Cleveland to 2-29 dating to the 2015 season.

According to Elias Sports Bureau research, that record matches the worst record in NFL history over a 31-game span.

Elias reports that only the Houston Oilers (1972-74 and 1982-84) and the Detroit Lions (several times, most recently 2007-09 and 2008-10) have also had a 2-29 mark over 31 games, a win-loss percentage of .065.

Cleveland was supposed to start its turnaround in 2017, but all it’s done is disappoint its fans — many of whom walked out before Sunday’s game ended.
“It is horrible,” said Jackson, on his overall mark of 1-19 as the Browns’ coach. “And I will be the first to tell you that.”

The Browns started the 2015 season 2-3, the second win in overtime in Baltimore. The team in that game was quarterbacked by Josh McCown, who will play quarterback for the New York Jets on Sunday against the Browns in Cleveland.

They finished that season 1-10, the only win when Johnny Manziel started a 24-10 victory over San Francisco at home. Mike Pettine was fired after that season, and Wholesale Jerseys China the Browns won one game in ’15 under Jackson (over San Diego after 14 losses to start the season), and are 0-4 this season.

According to Elias research, only John McKay had a worse first 20 games in his NFL career. McKay lost his first 26 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976-77, and made famous the line “I’m in favor of it” when asked what he thought of his offense’s execution.

Phil Handler of the Chicago Cardinals also went 1-19 to begin his NFL Jerseys Outlet career (1943-45), and Harvey Johnson of the Bills went 1-18-1 (1968 and ’71) — though both had qualifiers.

Doug Martin activated by Buccaneers as suspension ends

The Buccaneers have activated running back Doug Martin after a four-game suspension and he could play Thursday against the Patriots.

Tampa Bay waived second-year tight end Alan Cross to make room on the 53-man roster for Martin. He’s eligible to begin practice with the team right away and is expected to be at a walk-through practice Monday night.

The change comes after yet another dreadful performance by fifth-year quarterback Mike Glennon in the Bears’ 35-14 loss to the Packers on Thursday. Glennon finished 21 of 33 for 216 yards with a touchdown, two interceptions and two lost fumbles as Bears fans clamored for Trubisky to get his first NFL start.

After signing Glennon to a three-year deal worth $45-million in March, the Bears traded up one spot to select Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft in April. Despite Trubisky’s impressionable execution throughout training camp and the preseason, Chicago opted to begin the season with Glennon leading the offense.

The 1-3 Bears sit in fourth place in the NFC North through the first four weeks as Glennon totaled five interceptions and five fumbles with a lone overtime victory against the Steelers in Week 3.

Thanks everyone for reaching out.Markus is doing well.Not the report we wanted.However he will be back stronger and better then before. #44

Kareem Martin, a third-round pick in 2014, will likely take over Golden’s vacated Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses outside linebacker spot.

“I’m prepared,” Martin said. “It’s a next-man-up business, it’s a next-man-up team. In football, guys get hurt all the time. I’m praying for Markus, but if my Cheap Jerseys Wholesale role expands I’m prepared to take that on. Every week I prepare as if I’m the starter, through film and everything, so it won’t be any different in terms of that.”

Can receiver Davante Adams actually play a little more than a week after he got drilled in the head by Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan?

“I was the last guy at Redskins Park to see him the day he left. I saw him in the parking lot, and he was like, ‘Check this out.’ He was all thrilled because his knee was almost there. We spent a few minutes talking. I did not know he was going to Florida. And then we played, and then I got that phone call. I miss him.”

Things appear to be going in that direction. Adams was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, a sign that he has progressed through most of the concussion protocol. Also, running back Ty Montgomery practiced Wednesday on a limited basis with a large protective covering on his broken ribs, something he would almost certainly have to wear if he were to play Sunday at Dallas. — Rob Demovsky

Rodgers completes to Cobb for 26 yards. The Packers are now on the Bears’ 12.

The Packers take the ball at the Bears’ 42.

Interception. Glennon’s pass is picked off by Kentrell Brice. That’s the second interception tonight for Glennon.

Touchdown, Packers. Another easy pitch-and-catch from Rodgers to Nelson. It’s Cheap Hockey Jerseys 28-7, Packers. The Bears turned a productive red zone stop into an easy Packers touchdown with the penalty.

Marcus Mariota and DeMarco Murray used Seattle’s defense of all things to Cheap Goalie Jerseys Soccer get back on track, complementing each other at a high level. Deshaun Watson has provided more than just a spark for Houston’s offense — he’s downright carrying it by passing the ball around and running for big plays, too. Mariota has a lot more diverse help around him, and Murray and Derrick Henry’s pounding can wear down the Texans’ pass rush.

Linebacker Ryan Shazier was a surprise addition to the injury report with a shoulder issue that limited him on Wednesday.

Redskins secondary coach Steve Jackson, 2004-11: “The whole staff is there and Gregg’s going in on him: ‘We call you, you’re not here! We won’t have that s—!’ Sean didn’t say a word the whole time. He shakes his head, leans back in his chair almost to the point like he wanted to eye roll, but he wouldn’t do it. Gregg’s like, ‘You got anything to say?’ Sean was like, ‘Nah.’ He gets up and is ready to leave and Sean walks past Gregg and says, ‘Nice haircut’ and keeps right on going. After he leaves, Gregg smiles and says, ‘How come none of you m—–f—–s in here knew I had a haircut?’ That was typical Sean. When you think he’s being moody and you’re trying to get something out of him, he’s cool, calm, collected and in his own world. You would think he was an expert negotiator at being able to disarm people the way he handled Gregg.”

Shazier is eager to put together his first full season, and though this injury isn’t believed to be serious, the Steelers will monitor closely. Safety Sean Davis (ankle), guard Ramon Foster (thumb) and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (bicep) all missed practice Wednesday but played last week in Baltimore. The Steelers “did not absorb any major negativity” injury-wise against the Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin said. — Jeremy Fowler

The defending NFC champion Falcons have wobbled more than once in this young season, but they finally fell down Sunday at home against the Bills. They head into their bye at 3-1 — the same record as the Panthers, who just won in Foxborough, and a half-game ahead of the upstart Bucs, who deepened the Giants’ misery in a Sunday home win. Is Cam Newton really fixed? Are the Falcons’ wide receiver injuries serious? Can Tampa Bay get healthy on defense? This looks like it’ll be a fun race, and Cheap Jerseys America one of the most fun parts is that the head-to-head portion of it doesn’t get started until almost Halloween. The NFC South Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys could be a breakneck race to the finish line.
