NEW YORK -- Once Martin Prado caught Curtis Grandersons popup, Arizonas around-the-horn show zipped into fast motion. [url=https://www.cheapoilers.com/]Cheap Oilers Jerseys[/url] . The third baseman whipped the ball across the diamond to second baseman Aaron Hill. He quickly tossed it to shortstop Chris Owings, who flipped over his shoulder to left fielder Cody Ross. One more pass to centre fielder A.J. Pollock, and soon the souvenir got thrown into the stands. Its a fun, unique routine the Diamondbacks often perform after inning-ending pops and flyouts, and they got to practice a few more times Saturday in a 3-2 win over the New York Mets. "No one really talked about it, we just started doing it sometime last year," Ross said. "You throw it to one guy, and then it goes to the next guy and the next," he said. "Just whoever is looking for the ball as we run to the dugout," he said. "Kind of a team-bonding thing, a chemistry thing." As Ross spoke, the postgame music in the Arizona clubhouse was pumping. "Young, Wild & Free" by Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg featuring Bruno Mars was playing, and Ross sang along to the lyrics of "were just having fun." Quite a difference from the start of the season for the Diamondbacks. After opening up at 8-22, theyve gone 11-9. Josh Collmenter provided another solid start, Prado hit a pair of RBI singles and the Diamondbacks won on a wet afternoon to end a three-game skid. A day after Hill had a home run washed out when the game at Citi Field was postponed because of rain, he cracked a key hit that counted. His second-inning double set up run-scoring singles by Prado and Ross that put Arizona ahead to stay. David Wright homered, doubled and singled for the Mets. After he connected in the fifth for his third homer, Granderson popped out and the Diamondbacks began tossing the ball around as they headed toward the bench. "Its like hot potato out there," Collmenter said. "Its fun to watch." Collmenter (3-2) won his third decision in a row over a span of six starts. The righty with the unusual, straight over-the-top delivery allowed two runs in six innings before the Arizona bullpen held on. Collmenter led NL relievers in innings last year, and began this season with four relief appearances. He then moved into the rotation after starters Randall Delgado and Trevor Cahill were demoted. Arizona reliever Evan Marshall got Daniel Murphy to ground into a double play with two on to end the seventh, and Brad Ziegler escaped a two-on, one-out jam in the eighth. Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances. Zack Wheeler (1-5) is now winless in seven starts. His lone victory came in mid-April when he won at Phoenix in Collmenters first start of the year. Wheelers control troubles have hurt him this year. A leadoff walk in the second led to Arizona scoring twice, and Wheeler later hit two batters. "I was a little bit better with my command today. I was not perfect, of course, but it was better," he said. Wheeler was pulled after throwing 118 pitches, matching a career high. "I could have kept going, if it was not for the pitch count or whatever. I felt strong all the way through," he said. Hill doubled off the left-centre wall in the second, near the spot where he cleared the fence Friday night for a two-run homer. The stats from that game were wiped away when it was stopped in the fourth inning because of heavy showers, forcing a doubleheader Sunday. Prados RBI single in the third came after a throwing error by shortstop Wilmer Flores and made it 3-0 as a light rain fell on and off. Granderson hit an RBI double in the Mets third after singles by Murphy and Wright. NOTES: Arizona had lost five in a row to the Mets. ... The Mets are 1-9 in their last 10 games decided by one run. ... Arizona RHP Bronson Arroyo (4-3, 4.45) will start Game 1 Sunday against RHP Rafael Montero (0-2, 6.97). The Diamondbacks will promote RHP Zeke Spruill from Triple-A to make his season debut in the majors in the second game vs. RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka (1-0, 2.14). Matsuzaka hasnt started this year. ... Righty reliever Vic Black will join the Mets as the 26th man for the doubleheader. He throws hard, but can be wild. ... Mets LF Chris Young rammed into the wall padding while catching Hills drive in the fifth. ... Mets RHP Bartolo Colon turned 41, a day after pitching four innings in the rainout. Hes giving up home runs at much higher rate than usual, and manager Terry Collins said pitch location is the problem. ... Wright is 13 for 29 during a seven-game hitting streak.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the deal will pay Schenn $2.25 million in the first year and $2.75 million in the second year. In 82 games with the Flyers in 2013-14, Schenn scored 20 goals and added 21 assists.

[url=https://www.cheapoilers.com/]https://www.cheapoilers.com/[/url] . Pistorius denied the allegation that he said to the close friend of the girlfriend he killed: "How can you sleep at night?" The accusation by Kim Myers provided a bizarre twist during the trial of the world-famous double-amputee Olympian, who is facing 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder for shooting dead Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, at his home last year. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs offensive tackle Donald Stephenson was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season Friday for violating the leagues performance-enhancing substance policy, a massive blow to an already unsteady offensive line. Stephenson remains eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games, including Saturday nights contest against Minnesota. He will miss games against Tennessee, Denver, Miami and New England and be eligible to return to the active roster Sept. 30. The substance was not disclosed. The Chiefs said in a three-sentence statement that they were informed of the positive test on Friday and expressed disappointment in losing Stephenson, but declined further comment. Stephenson said in a statement issued through the NFL Players Association that he took a medication that requires a therapeutic-use exemption and failed to properly investigate it. "The rules are strict, and without a TUE, the consequence is a four-game suspension," Stephenson said in the statement. "It is not a mistake I will ever make again. I will train extremely hard during my time away from the team and I will be ready to contribute to my teams effort to win a Super Bowl as soon as I return." Stephenson was a fill-in starter last season but was expected to anchor the right side this year, taking over for former No. 1 overall draft pick Eric Fisher as he moved back to left tackle. With perilously little depth, Stephensons lost could result in plenty of shuffling. Jeff Allen is expected to move from left guard to right tackle, filling in for Stephenson but creating a new hole. Ricky Henry and Jeff Linkenbach, who were fighting for a backup job, are now in a race to replace at Allen at starting left guard for the first four games of the season. &"Were rotating people around and well keep doing that," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. [url=https://www.cheapoilers.com/]Oilers Jerseys 2021[/url]. "When were satisfied with who the five best are well roll from there. I dont really care about positions right now. I just care about getting the five best out there." The Chiefs have tried several permutations through their first two preseason games, and none of them has engendered a great deal of confidence. If they havent been hit with false start and holding penalties, theyve struggled to open holes and contain the pass rush. "We dont make any excuses for them," offensive co-ordinator Doug Pederson said. "Guys just have to focus in on detail. They get in the heat of the battle and sometimes they get a little fatigued and into the game, but they still have to concentrate and understand how were snapping the ball, when were snapping the ball. We need to eliminate those types of penalties, the holding penalties and obviously the sacks and turnovers." The trickle-down of Stephensons suspension could also impact the number of offensive linemen the Chiefs keep when they go through roster cuts. Teams must trim from 90 players to 75 by Tuesday afternoon, and final cuts to the 53-man roster limit are due Sept. 30. The Chiefs were already without their top wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, for the season opener after he was suspended by the league for an incident involving marijuana last November. Theyve also been dealing with a rash of injuries. Inside linebacker Joe Mays sustained a wrist injury that will require surgery and is likely to keep him out for the first few weeks of the regular season, and running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and wide receiver Junior Hemingway have all been dealing with nagging injuries during training camp.
