rs 18 home runs since June 19 are the most in baseball, and the fifth-year player is suddenly on track for career highs in nearl Antworten

MINNEAPOLIS -- For two months, Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier has been among the hottest hitters in baseball.Dozier was at it again on Saturday night, cranking his 25th homer of the season -- and 100th of his major league career -- in a 5-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals.Each team will go for the series win on Sunday, although finding a way to slow down the red-hot Dozier might prove difficult for the defending World Series champions.Doziers 18 home runs since June 19 are the most in baseball, and the fifth-year player is suddenly on track for career highs in nearly every major offensive category.I think everything, for a while now, has just been feeling good and clicking on all cylinders, Dozier said. Everything feels really comfortable. Hitting is never easy, but the more you simplify it, it makes it a lot easier.Besides home runs, Dozier has hit safely in 21 of his last 22 games and has an extra-base hit in five straight.Doziers just been incredible for us, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Its been fun to watch.Minnesota has made a habit of hitting home runs lately. They are among the best in the league during the last month and hit three more off Royals starter Dillon Gee on Saturday.Gee was doing a nice job of navigating through the Twins lineup until back-to-back homers in the sixth inning ended his night and put the game out of reach.He was throwing the ball well, Royals manager Ned Yost said. He was one hitter away from having a really, really good outing.Kansas City will send right-hander Edinson Volquez to the mound in an attempt to get back on track. Volquez has been shelled in each of his last three outings, allowing four or more runs each time out. He has allowed 11 runs and 21 hits in his last 11 innings.Volquez has been solid against Minnesota in two starts this season, however, giving up two earned runs, six hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings and getting the win at Target Field on May 24.The Twins will send left-hander Hector Santiago to the mound in search of his first win since being traded to Minnesota on Aug. 1. Santiago was burned for five runs (four earned), seven hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to Houston on Tuesday. Wholesale China Jerseys . It was Kerbers third final of the year after losing to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in Monterrey in April and to Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in Tokyo two weeks ago. The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. Cheap China Jerseys .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. China Jerseys . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. ORLANDO, Fla. -- After Atlantas offense exploded on them two nights earlier, the Toronto Raptors faced a similar situation in the first quarter Sunday night -- they were leaving Orlando players open, and the inferior Magic were knocking down shots.Only this time, Toronto turned things around. It got back to its defensive principles in the second quarter, and by the second half, Orlando couldnt find an open shot while the Raptors pulled away for a 109-79 victory.Toronto limited the Magic to 28 second-half points and 41 percent shooting, which was in stark contrast to Friday night when Atlanta shot nearly 54 percent from the floor while beating the Raptors 125-121.That was big for us after a lackluster defensive game against Atlanta, said Toronto coach Dwane Casey, whose team has eclipsed 100 points an NBA-best 15 straight times.Thats the way we have to play if we are going to be important, relevant in this league. We have to play with that defensive intensity every night.The Raptors stepped up defensively in the second half, turning a four-point halftime lead into an 84-64 edge by the end of third quarter. Orlando, which has struggled offensively throughout the season, managed just 13 points in the game-changing third quarter.The Magic were 3 for 21 from 3-point range. Evan Fournier led Orlando with 15 points but was plagued by foul trouble and turnovers.We didnt start the game following our game plan very well. We had a good first quarter, said Orlando coach Frank Vogel, whose team dropped to 5-10 at home this season. We didnt play team basketball and it got worse as the game went on. They made their runs and we gave in versus responding.Much of that was because the Magic had few answers for guard DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas. Aaron Gordon and Jeff Green took turns getting beat off the dribblee and on pullup jumpers by DeRozan, who finished with a game-high 31 points for his fourth-straight 30-point effort.ddddddddddddValanciunas dominated his old teammates Bismack Biyombo and Nikola Vucevic in the post, getting 16 points and 13 rebounds.Just trying to bounce back from a loss, it sucks coming off a loss, DeRozan said. You just want to do whatever you can to get a win and that was my whole mindset tonight.TEMPORARY PROMOTIONRookie Fred VanVleet benefited from extra playing time Sunday with Cory Joseph not dressed due to flu-like symptoms.VanVleet, who has been back-and-forth to the D-League this season, had four points, four assists and three steals in 22 minutes.He came in and there was no let up, Casey said with a smile. I told somebody Cory better hurry up and get well. Footsteps are behind him.UNHAPPY REUNIONBiyombo likely saw his first matchup with his former Raptors teammates going differently than it did Sunday night.He had eight points, three blocked shots and 12 rebounds, but the Magic center also had four turnovers and did little to slow Valanciunas.TIP-INSRaptors: Pascal Siakam had four blocked shots in the first half but also had four fouls before halftime.Magic: Guard Jodie Meeks got a flagrant-1 for a hard foul on Lowry with 6:28 play in the second quarter. ... Elfrid Payton scored 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting off the bench in the first half. ... Orlando has not won back-to-back home games since defeating New Orleans and Dallas on Nov. 16 and Nov. 19, respectively. The Magic beat Brooklyn at home on Friday night.UP NEXTRaptors: Toronto returns home to take on Brooklyn on Tuesday night.Magic: Orlando goes on the road to face Miami on Tuesday night.
