It is a team effort no doubt but it would be unfair not to give the bowlers that extra bit of appreciation for their stand-out performance.

They've bounced between contenders and disappointments the past few years, as Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano tried to live up to the hype. The Minnesota Twins have signed free agent slugger Nelson Cruz on Thursday morning. While the Mariners were unable to capitalize on it, Cruz, in 41 postseason games, batted.292 with 16 home runs and 34 RBI. It seems the Twins are going all out in finding players that can provide more firepower to the offensive side of the ball which is exactly what ...

Gurley is the NFL's second-leading rusher with 1,251 yards, and he leads the league with 21 touchdowns. "It was a similar situation", McVay said. "It was bad", Gurley told ESPN's Lindsey Thiry . Backup defensive backs Blake Countess and Marqui Christian will play extensively in Joyner's absence, McVay said. And not just because the Rams aren't good at stopping the run either.

India batted for nearly 170 overs in their first innings on a pitch which remained virtually lifeless during the first two days but went on to deteriorate.

The only negative for Juve was the loss of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to an apparent injury in the warm-up. Paulo Dybala leads the top scorers for the Old Lady with 16 goals, but Ronaldo is only one behind him in second place. A little more than a month away from his 34th birthday, he looks as decisive as ever. He should have done better to keep out Ronaldo's opener and went to ground too quickly to do anything about the penalty.

Tim Paine's side need to win in Sydney to avoid becoming the first Australian team to lose a Test series at home to India . Virat Kohli and boys ended a 37-year wait to win a Test match at the historic Melbourne Cricket Ground and while this Indian team has shown the hunger to perform well on foreign shore time and again, this win was more special because India have now taken a 2-1 lead in the four-match series and thereby retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

I'm a confident guy. "I truly think he loves playing football". "I mean, he's that unique".

Celtic also have a game in hand. Firstly, denying Connor Goldson from close range and then another from a Rangers corner. A mix-up between Gordon and Dedryck Boyata gave Rangers a huge chance just after half-time, but both atoned themselves as Kent's effort was saved before the Belgium defender cleared Scott Arfield's follow-up off the line.

Hazard is out of contract in 2020 but the Chelsea attacker is yet to re-sign at Stamford Bridge amid ongoing speculation regarding a move to Madrid. "I think [he will stay], because in this position we have only two players, Jorginho and Fabregas, and so for me, it would be a very big problem to be without Cesc", he continued.

Trent Boult was too hot to handle for Suranga Lakmal as the left-arm pacer knocked off the off pole on the third delivery of the day to give New Zealand a flawless start.

Earlier this month, Herbert declared himself healthy for the bowl game after suffering what was described by coach Mario Cristobal as a "deep bruise" on his shoulder during the Ducks' victory against Oregon State on November 23. In a nutshell, that means if they want the quarterback who most feel is the most likely to be "the guy" in Haskins, they'll now have to hope that Week 17 allows them to move ahead of the quarterback-needy teams in the draft order.

Still, Machado is one of the best at his position, and he can do it with both the bat and the glove. It sounds as if the Chicago White Sox are in play for both players as are the Philadelphia Phillies . Meanwhile, the Dodgers have remained on the periphery with Harper and not been involved for Machado . What the Sox do have is a strong farm system with many players who are close to making their major league debuts.

He sprained his right ring finger in the Lakers' 127-101 win over the Warriors on Christmas Day. The Lakers point guard had surgery on the same hand earlier in the season and had missed 17 games because of it. The Lakers ended up losing the game against the Sacramento Kings by a score of 117-116. He finished with nine. If the Lakers are hoping to tread water until James gets back, Ball will have to continue playing like that for at least a couple games .

No doubt. But bigger-picture, Virginia needs to learn how to finish seasons. Each player and head coach Bronco Mendenhall got to take a few laps around the track with a professional driver, and some of them were shocked with feeling of 200 miles per hour.

It's no surprise to see Harden pulling out these types of moves, as everyone knows by now that he's one of the most versatile players in the entire National Basketball Association. Capela is being paid handsomely by Houston, but when it comes to the best rebounders in the league conversation, he is rarely mentioned. Or those the Thunder win/loss record is 2/4.

After Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat, they were bowled out for 181. He came through unscathed and picked up two wickets in the series South Africa lost 2-0. South Africa needed just 12 runs to win at that point and it meant a pair of ducks for the South Africa skipper in the test. He seized his chance and his match figures of 11-96 were the 11th-best performance by a South African in a test and the second-best ever by a home bowler at SuperSport Park .

The Golden State Warriors will have an opportunity to match the deal and reportedly remain intent on retaining McCaw despite his interest in playing elsewhere.

Having begun 100 runs adrift and with six wickets still in hand, Sri Lanka's day two was disastrous - their lower order clueless against Boult's sublime bowling in the morning, and their seamers toothless in the afternoon and evening sessions.

Stanton said the tradition started when he played for Detroit, and he brought it to Cleveland so Stanton, Tyrod Taylor , Mayfield and Brogan Roback (who was released at the end of camp) could use it during downtime.

Unai Emery is confident Arsenal's youngsters can help them bounce back from their defeat to Southampton when they face north London rivals Tottenham in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Despite those numbers, the Lions unceremoniously dumped him following a 2017 season where the team finished with a 9-7 record. Of course, the fact that Caldwell coached the Lions could also be viewed as an advantage, because it means he's already familiar with the NFC North.

It's that idea that must've been the impetus for what we will dub "The Call", as a reporter in Philly asked Pederson today whether or not he'd called his former colleague to pressure him to play his starters and beat the Vikings (which'd give the Eagles a playoff berth), regardless of the outcome in the Rams game.
