Posted on 8:04pm Aug 23, 2017
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Oakland Athletics can win a lot of different ways, as evidenced by their two-year hold on the AL West division title. Arron Afflalo Kings Jersey . Yoenis Cespedes proved he can play through a hurting right heel, giving Scott Kazmir and the As a spark with a pair of RBIs that helped spoil the Minnesota Twins home opener with an 8-3 victory on Monday. "When were swinging well, we feel like we have a deep lineup," As manager Bob Melvin said. Cespedes has been hobbling around the last few days with the injury, but the team wasnt worried enough about it to hold him out. The Cuban slugger followed a leadoff walk to Brandon Moss by crushing a double in the second inning for the first run against Kevin Correia (0-1) and hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Moss added a two-run single in the third and Derek Norris homered in the sixth. "Everyone knows their strengths and they dont go outside of their game, and I think thats what makes us a great overall ballclub and very deadly down the stretch of the whole season," Norris said. Jed Lowrie hit what the As believed was a home run down the right-field line in the third inning, but the call on the field was a foul ball and the umpire-initiated review, which lasted more than four minutes, upheld the ruling. Lowrie took a walk instead and later scored. Kazmir (2-0), who stymied with Twins in five starts against them last season for Cleveland, completed six innings with six hits, three runs and four walks allowed. He struck out five, and RBI doubles by Aaron Hicks and Jason Kubel were the only damaging hits against him. This wasnt his best, but Kazmir got enough quick outs to stay in there. "Not very efficient with my pitches, but theres going to be days like that so I need to be able to battle. To get six out of that, thats something you can build on," he said. The 30-year-old Kazmir dazzled in his As debut with 7 1-3 scoreless innings last week against his old team, the Indians. He did the same against the Twins in 2013, going 3-0 with a 1.45 ERA in 31 innings with 36 strikeouts. With Jarrod Parker, a 12-game winner last year, out for the season following elbow ligament replacement surgery and A.J. Griffin not yet ready because of a spring arm injury, the rotation took a hit. Kazmir, then, is that much more valuable. Oh, and so is the lineup. "All the way through, guys are taking quality at-bats and really working the starting pitcher early in the game. That goes a long way as far as getting the win," Kazmir said. Correia came out with two outs in the sixth. He yielded nine hits, six runs and two walks while striking out three. "He started pounding inside a bit better and his last couple innings were better because of that," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "But you cant just stay out and over the plate on these guys." Alberto Callaspo and Josh Reddick also drove in runs for the As, who played without centre fielder Coco Crisp because of a sore left wrist. Norris, Callaspo and Josh Donaldson each had two hits. "I just threw a couple bad pitches in situations where I had a chance to get out of a jam," Correia said. "Thats what Ive been able to do the last couple years." NOTES: Lowrie was hit by a pitch on the lower right leg in the seventh inning and was in too much pain to stay in the game. Nick Punto, who played seven seasons for the Twins, entered as a pinch runner and eventually scored on a balk by Sam Deduno. ... The Athletics made a bullpen shuffle before the game, reinstating RH Ryan Cook from the disabled list and sending RH Evan Scribner to Triple-A Sacramento. Cook, who was out with shoulder tendinitis, struck out two in a hitless ninth. ... Attendance was announced at 35,837, more than 3,000 below official capacity. .... The Twins had left fielder Josh Willingham (left wrist) and right fielder Oswaldo Arcia (right wrist) both out of the lineup. ... The three-game series resumes on Wednesday afternoon, with RH Jesse Chavez (0-0, 1.50 ERA) pitching for the As against Twins RH Phil Hughes (0-0, 7.20 ERA). Mike Bibby Kings Jersey .m.

Fognini won 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 after Argentinas Carlos Berlocq had beaten Andreas Seppi 4-6, 6-0, 6-2, 6-1 on the outdoor clay surface. Doubles are set for Saturday with reverse singles on Sunday to decide which team reaches the quarterfinals.Cheney, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Eastern Washington star quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. will visit the University of Oregon this weekend, according to a media report Wednesday. Oregon is in the market for a new starting quarterback, looking to replace Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota. Adams, a redshirt junior, is on schedule to graduate from EWU this spring and would be eligible immediately as a senior under the NCAAs graduate student transfer-exception rule. Oregonian reporter Jen Beyrle said via Twitter Wednesday that sources indicate Adams will visit Oregon this weekend. The DuckTerritory page of 247sports.com also said sources confirm the visit. Adams, from Pasadena, California, has been named the Big Sky Conferences offensive player of the year and Walter Payton Award runner-up as FCS player of the year in each of the past two seasons. During that time, he has accounted for a combined 9,367 total yards (8,477 passing, 890 rushing) and 100 touchdowns (90 passing, 10 rushing) in 25 games. Malachi Richardson Jersey. Adams has posted huge games against two of Oregons fellow Pac-12 schools, Oregon State and Washington. He accounted for 519 yards of offense and six total touchdowns in a 49-46 win over Oregon State to open the 2013 campaign, and passed for 475 yards and a school-record seven touchdowns in a 59-52 loss to Washington this past September. Since 2012, Eastern Washington has 34 victories, which represent the best three-year stretch of success in program history. Prior to that stretch, however, the Eagles won the 2010 FCS national title. Oregon is expected to have a battle among quarterbacks during spring practice, with Jeff Locke considered the front-runner entering the competition. The dual- threat style of the 6-foot, 190-pound Adams would appear to be a strong fit for the Ducks spread attack. Ironically, Eastern Washington and Oregon are scheduled to open their 2015 seasons against each other on Sept. 5 in Eugene.
