Vapormax Release Australia .Baltimores win over Toronto gave Seattle (85-74) even less room for error as the Mariners prepare to play their third-to-the-last game of the season trailing the Orioles and Blue Jays by two games in the American League wild-card race.We know we have to win, Seattle catcher Mike Zunino said Thursday night. Thats the thing. Theres only three left, and if we dont win our games now, nothing else matters.Seattle did its part Friday night, beating the As 3-2 despite a shaky ninth inning that saw Mariners closer Edwin Diaz give up three hits and a run before striking out the final two batters to wriggle out of it.Its tough, Diaz said of his ninth inning. I need to control my emotions and give the team a chance to make the playoffs. Were so close.The As (67-92) nearly staged a ninth-inning comeback even though theyre not playing for anything other than pride.It came down to situational at-bats, manager Bob Melvin said after the latest loss.Oakland will try to regroup behind Friday starter Raul Alcantara, while the Mariners will turn to 24-year-old Taijuan Walker in what could be their final meaningful game of the season.Seattle needs Toronto and/or Baltimore to lose Friday to still have a chance to win an outright wild-card berth, and the Mariners could be eliminated from playoff contention if they lose and both the Blue Jays and Orioles win. Further complicating things is a Detroit team that had a rainout Thursday and sits between Seattle and the co-leaders in the wild-card standings.The way we look at it, well play tomorrows game, and well try to win it and pray for a little help, Seattle manager Scott Servais said late Thursday night.The Mariners have their rotation lined up so that veterans Hisashi Iwakuma (Saturday) and Felix Hernandez (Sunday) will close out the season and could be on the mound for the biggest games of the season. But those two wont be a factor if Walker cant deliver on Friday night.The 24-year-old right-hander, having opened the season as the No. 2 starter in the rotation before struggling all the way to a stint in Triple-A, has pitched well over his past four starts after changing his mechanics. Hes 3-1 since getting shelled in a Sept. 3 loss to the Angels and will be on the mound for the biggest start of his young career Friday.The Mariners are also looking for more offense, particularly from the middle of their lineup. Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager went a combined 2-for-11 Thursday after carrying the team for most of the season. That group also has a chance to become Seattles first trio since Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez and Edgar Martinez in 1998 to record 30 home runs and 100 RBI in the same season. Cano is three RBI shy of 100, while Seager needs to drive in one more run to hit that mark. Vapormax Utility Moon Particle . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. Air Max 270 Mens Black . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One day after the Chiefs James Winchester attended his fathers funeral, he walked onto the field inside of Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to snap for a 22-yard field-goal attempt.When it went through, Winchester and kicker Cairo Santos stood together for an extra moment.I said, `This ones for daddy, Santos said later. I told James after, `Youre going to go on with your life honoring him with everything that you do.Winchesters father, Michael was shot to death Tuesday by a disgruntled former Southwest Airlines employee outside an Oklahoma City airport. Police believe the shooting may have been in retaliation for the assailant losing his job with the airline, where Winchester worked for 29 years.The Chiefs honored Winchester with a moment of silence before their 19-17 loss to Tampa Bay.I cant speak personally about it, Chiefs offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz said, but theres a sense of normalcy and getting back here kind of breaks up being away from there, and kind of intensifies the feeling. Im sure it was good for him to get back and see everyone and get back to as normal of a situation as can possibly be, given the circumstances.Santos said he could empathize with what Winchester. His father, Cairo Santos Sr., was a Brazilian stunt pilot who was killed while performming during his sons senior season at Tulane. Nike Acronym Vapormax Moc 2. Santos kicked two days after the funeral.Its a family. Were not just teammates, he said, the coaches and the organization included.Chiefs general manager John Dorsey spent Saturday with Winchester in Oklahoma, representing the team at the funeral, and owner Clark Hunt was behind the dedication prior to kickoff Sunday.I cant commend that guy enough, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said. The stuff that hes been dealt this week is, man, its hard. It makes football seem pointless.Winchester was not available after the game, but even those on the opposite sideline had him in their thoughts. Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was teammates with Winchester at Oklahoma, and the two of them shared a moment off to the side of the field.McCoy said the conversation was private, but he said they spent some time in prayer.Your father passed away a week ago, you wouldnt be doing too good. But hes holding up as good as possible, McCoy said. Ive lost a parent before. I know how hard it was to come out here and perform. Im proud of him.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
