    Clint McKay does not expect Leicestershire to struggle this summer as badly as they have in recent County Championship seasons. Nike Roshe Two Cheap . The Foxes have finished bottom of Division Two the last three seasons, although at least 2015 saw them end a run of more than two years without a four-day win.Despite claiming two victories over the summer, Leicestershire were still 35 points adrift of eighth-placed Derbyshire, but McKay feels their progress can continue this season. Leicestershire have signed a pair of experienced County Championship batsmen in Mark Pettini and Paul Horton, while all-rounder Neil Dexter has arrived from Middlesex.We showed a lot of improvement last year, some good signs, but at the end of the day we only won two first-class games, McKay told Sky Sports News HQ.This year we are not here to make up the numbers, we want to compete and win games of cricket. I think were in for a very successful year in all forms of the game. Its really exciting times for the club. Former Essex batsman Mark Pettini is among the additions to the Leicestershire squad this season McKay is back after a successful season in Australia, where he was part of the Sydney Thunder squad that won the Big Bash League, while his state Victoria won the Sheffield Shield earlier this month - he was not involved in the final.The 33-year-old recently announced his retirement from international cricket in order to concentrate on Leicestershire this summer.I had a great time at home. And obviously a little bit of success to start off with at Sydney Thunder. Also managed to get to the Sheffield Shield final with Victoria this week and that was very exciting, he added. McKay had a successful season in Australia and won the Big Bash League as part of the Sydney Thunder I hope I can bring some experience like last year. Another year older, another year wiser. Changing Big Bash teams at home this year it was good to get some new ideas and play alongside some of the greats in Jacques Kallis, Michael Hussey and Shane Watson.Its upskilling your own skills and also improving your knowledge of the game, especially in T20, and that was fantastic.

Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A month ago, Rays starter Jake Odorizzi was the epitome of frustration, leading the majors in no-decisions with only three wins in 19 starts. He was mentioned as a trade target at the deadline, but stayed as Tampa Bay dealt Matt Moore to the Giants instead.Since the All-Star break, hes been one of the best pitchers in the American League -- 4-0 with a 1.66 ERA that is an American League-best for a pitcher with 25 or more innings. Hes struck out 33 batters while walking seven, part of a resurgent starting rotation thats helped the Rays play .500 baseball since the break.And as much as facing the team with the ALs best record would seem to slow that down, Odorizzi (7-5, 3.72 this season) has fared well against the Rangers prior to Fridays meeting. In three career starts, hes 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA, and that drops to 0.71 in two appearances at Tropicana Field.The Rays hope to regain some momentum after seeing a four-game win streak end with Fridays 6-2 loss.Pretty disappointing game to say the least, Rays manager Kevin Cash said after Fridays game. We got outpitched, outhit, outdefended. They didnt make any mental mistakes; we made a handful. So a pretty disappointing effort.Heading in the opposite direction from Odorizzi is Rangers starter A.J. Griffin, who comes in 5-2 with 4.68 ERA, but has seen his effectiveness dropp consistently as the season progresses. Nike Roshe One Slip On. Griffin had four quality starts in his first five appearances, but none in his last 11. The same pitcher who had a 2.93 ERA at the end of June had a 5.84 ERA in July and has a 7.41 ERA in August.A big part of that struggle has been a consistent inability to avoid the home-run ball -- he gave up just two home runs in his first six starts, but has allowed at least one in 10 straight starts, including seven in his last three outings. His last start saw him give up 11 hits -- including three home runs -- for six runs in a 7-0 loss to the Tigers.The Rangers havent had many weaknesses, but starting off road trips poorly has been one of them. Coming out of the All-Star break, they dropped six of their first seven on the road, and opened their next road trip losing three of four. So to open a five-game road swing with an emphatic victory Friday night was encouraging for manager Jeff Banister.I feel good about how theyre playing in general, but obviously we need to continue to play well on the road, Banister said after their fifth straight road victory. We get an opportunity (next week) to go home and play where we like to play, but we need to play better on the road.
