  • The Premier League Darts 2016 champion will be crowned on Thursday night - but Wayne Mardle reckons he knows who will win! Road to The O2 How did the four semi-finalists get so far? Michael van Gerwen plays Adrian Lewis before Phil Taylor meets Gary Anderson in the semi-finals - live on Sky Sports 2 HD at 7pm - before the winners will collide in the final. Nick Martin Jersey .Without further ado, heres Sky Sports expert Mardle picking his winner... Michael van Gerwen v Adrian LewisWayne said: I think Adrian will perform, this will not be plain-sailing for Michael. I wont tell lies and say Adrian is playing as well as Michael because clearly, he is not. Relive some classic encounters between MVG and Jackpot The likelihood is that Michael scores more consistently, not better. There will be legs where theyre both sitting on 41 or less after nine darts, and Adrian must put Michael under pressure. He must let Michael know that he cant run away with it.Adrian needs to take out the 104s and the 88s - if those combinations are not at their best hell get beaten. Michael is the one to stop, and thats no shock. Michael van Gerwen hits a bullseye checkout The extra legs benefit Michael. The longer format gives the better player a bigger chance of winning. If its over one leg, I would have a chance against Van Gerwen. Over 21 legs its unlikely, over 101 legs I would have no chance.Prediction: 10-8 to Van Gerwen. It will be close and it wouldnt be a major shock if Adrian won, but I dont think he will.Sky Bet odds: Van Gerwen 10-8 - 9/1 Phil Taylor v Gary AndersonWayne said: Ive been in turmoil over this. This is just whoever plays better on the night - theyve both been there, seen it, done it. Watch the winning leg between Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld Gary is playing better than Phil and will feel better about his game. But Phil can be playing poorly and still pull something out. Lets not think Phil is going to get annihilated.But of the two, Gary is playing better. Phil can produce things that leave you in awe but Gary has more gears. Gary can go from average-to-brilliant in a leg-and-a-bit, whereas Phil gets stuck in a rut. Gary Andersons win over Raymond van Barneveld If Phil starts off in a rich vein of form and has a swagger, he will be hard to stop.Prediction: 10-9 to Gary, on the basis that Phil is not as composed as he once was. At the end of these long matches, you need composure. Gary has shown incredible composure in the latter part of the season.Sky Bet odds: Anderson 10-9 - 9/1Waynes final: Michael van Gerwen v Gary AndersonWayne said: Gary loves playing Michael. It switches him on, it gets him salivating, he relishes it! Could MVG and Gary Anderson meet for a third time in the PL season? Gary is odd because he isnt afraid to lose. A lot of players protect themselves against the very best, so if its 2-2 they think its the most important thing in the world to hold throw.Gary will think if I get broken Ill just try to break back as best I can. Gary oozes the confidence that comes with winning two World Championships and a Premier League - he has grown so much in three years. Michael van Gerwen beat Gary Anderson in a thrilling contest in Newcastle Prediction: Michael wins but Gary will push him the whole way. I expect a last-leg thriller! The worlds best player will beat the worlds second-best player. Michael will take out 116 with Gary sitting on tops!Sky Bet outright odds: Van Gerwen 8/13, Taylor 100/30, Anderson 11/2, Lewis 9/1Watch Premier League Darts on Thursday, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 7pm.  Or watch for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.

The right-hander, who spent the previous five seasons with the Indians, got three outs in the ninth inning to preserve a 6-3 victory for Los Angeles on Monday night for his first save with the Angels. His role changed after a series of poor outings by Ernesto Frieri. "I dont think your attitude changes," Smith said. "I mean, if youre coming on in the seventh or eighth inning, the goal is the same: get out of the inning with a zero and hand the ball off to the next guy. Now, the goal is to get out of the inning with a zero and slap hands. It doesnt matter what inning Im throwing. I pitch people the same." Smith retired Carlos Santana on a foul pop behind the plate, then gave up a single to pinch-hitter David Murphy before retiring Michael Brantley on a fielders choice grounder and Asdrubal Cabrera on a line drove to centre field. "When hes on your team, hes easy to root for," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "Im one of his biggest fans -- and I only had the opportunity to have him for one year. For the guys who were around him longer than that, I can see why they like him so much. Hes a pros pro. I remember a conversation I had with Smitty when he was going through free agency, and I remember telling him flat out: We want you back so bad. But if we dont get you back, I hope you break the bank." Smith, who signed a three-year, $15.75 million contract in November, was the setup man last year for the Tribe and got three saves along the way. "Joe could be successful anywhere they put him," Francona said. Fernando Salas (2-0) pitched a hitless eighth inning and got credit for the victory after the Angels broke a 3-all tie in the bottom half with an RBI single by Mike Trout and a two-run triple by Raul Ibanez against Justin Masterson (0-1). Masterson gave up six runs and seven hits in 7 1-3 innings after getting a no-decision in each of his first five starts. The right-hander hasnt posted a victory since beating the Angells 3-1 last Aug. Andre Hal Jersey. 21 at the "Big A." Nick Swisher misplayed J.B. Shucks leadoff grounder to first base in the eighth for an error, and Erick Aybar bunted Shuck to second before Trout singled to left on a full-count pitch to snap a 3-all tie. Albert Pujols was walked intentionally in front of Ibanez, who capped the scoring with his triple to right-centre on Mastersons 113th and final pitch. Tyler Skaggs allowed three runs and four hits in seven innings and struck out six. The left-hander, staked to a 1-0 lead on Pujols RBI groundout in the first, retired his first 10 batters before giving up a double by Swisher, a walk to Jason Kipnis and Santanas second homer of the season into the left field bullpen. "Tyler hung a curveball to Santana, but other than that, he threw the ball awesome," Smith said. "If our starters go seven and give up three every time, thats great. Keep it rolling. It only makes it easier on us -- especially with this offence." Santana, the Indians switch-hitting third baseman, came in batting .122 over his first 24 games and was 3 for 22 with men in scoring position. But Francona said before the game that he wasnt ready to drop Santana out of the cleanup spot, where he has been in every game hes played. The Angels tied it in the fifth on a two-out, two-run double down the right field line by Aybar after Masterson issued a leadoff walk to Ian Stewart and a single by David Freese. Stewart started at third base while Freese was the designated hitter on his 31st birthday. The Indians, who had just gotten swept in a series at San Francisco, were 2 for 20 with runners in scoring position during that three-game set and totalled just five runs -- while their 4-5-6 hitters were a combined 0 for 29. NOTES: The Angels flight from New York didnt get in until 5:15 a.m. local time after a 3-2 loss at Yankee Stadium on Sunday that ended their 4-5 road trip. "I wish they played 20 innings," Francona said. ... Angels LF Josh Hamilton had his cast taken off Monday and is wearing a splint, the next step toward beginning his strength exercises and resuming baseball activities. Wholesale Jerseys 2018NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
