made only 56 runs in the three innings against Afghanistan, falling to the slog-sweep twice and before being dropped from the sa Antworten

CHICAGO -- Chris Sale raced out as the majors first 14-game winner and was the AL starter in the All-Star game. Then the White Sox ace hit a rut and drew attention not for his pitching, but his jersey-shredding tirade.After a masterful eight scoreless innings that produced his first victory in 49 days, Sale acknowledged the importance of what he called getting over the hump.Sale allowed three hits and threw a season-high 120 pitches, Jose Abreu homered and Chicago beat the Oakland Athletics 6-2 on Saturday night.My last few times out I havent been as good as Ive wanted to be or as good as Ive needed to be, the lefty said.Sale (15-6) had gone 0-4 in his previous six starts, interrupted by a five-day suspension for slicing up throwback uniforms he didnt want to wear.He looked like his dominant early season self, retiring the last seven batters, five by strikeout, and working in sync with catcher Dioner Navarro.Hes calling two-seams and four-seams on both sides of the plate. Front-door, back-door breaking balls and stuff like that, Sale said.The White Sox scored four runs with two outs, including Abreus solo shot that just cleared the eight-foot wall and Brett Eibners glove in right in the first inning. Melky Cabrera added an RBI double in the second and a run-scoring single in the fourth off Ross Detwiler (1-2).But the White Sox made it interesting late.With baseball, the tying run usually comes on deck. We do it whether its 2-1 or 6-0, manager Robin Ventura said.Oaklands Danny Valencia homered in a two-run ninth off Nate Jones. David Robertson came in with two on and got the final two outs for his 31st save when Chad Pinder, playing in his first major league game, flied deep to center.I thought it was easily getting over (Adam Eatons) head, As manager Bob Melvin said. From the sound of it and I know his power, you felt like it had a chance to be a home run.Detwiler allowed six runs and 10 hits in four innings in his third start for the banged-up As, who have dropped six of seven.Carlos Sanchez and Tim Anderson added two-out RBI singles for the White Sox a night after they were held to two singles. The White Sox snapped a two-game skid and won for the fourth time in 14 games.Abreu, who has hit safely in 15 of 17 games, also doubled and scored in the third and walked in the fourth.Sale got Khris Davis to hit into a double play with two on in the first. Sale walked three but got stronger as the game went on. He retired 15 of the last 16 batters and hit 96 mph while striking out the side in the seventh. He struck out eight and lowered his ERA to 3.15.Theres a lot of movement on the baseball and his breaking ball does two different things depending on which side of the plate he throws it, Melvin said. Even if you guess right, theres so much movement on it, its tough to square up.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: RHP Jesse Hahn (shoulder) was supposed to come off the disabled list and start Sunday, but he suffered what he called minor discomfort in a bullpen session. Hell have at least another rehab game, but Im not sure when, Melvin said. ... DH Billy Butler, a .378 career hitter against Sale, was out with a stomach illness.White Sox: 2B Tyler Saladino (back) sat out a second straight game. He could play. Its just better that he gets a little time off, Ventura said. ... OF Avisail Garcia (knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. ... Ventura is hopeful C Alex Avila (hamstring) will begin another rehab stint within the week. ... RHP Miguel Gonzalez (groin) hopes to throw off the mound Sunday. ... 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quadriceps) returned to Double-A Birminghams lineup after sitting out two days.PINDER DEBUTSPinder, Oaklands second-round pick in 2013, finished 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. The 24-year-old out of Virginia Tech became the 46th player to appear in a game for Oakland this season and the 11th to make his big league debut.UP NEXTAs rookie RHP Zach Neal (2-2, 5.19 ERA) will fill in for Hahn against Chicago LHP Jose Quintana (9-9, 2.85) on Sunday.

Nike Air Max 90 Clearance Sale . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. Even in November last year, Mushfiqur Rahim made runs for fun. But within months, the runs dried up and then one mistake on the field, and another off it, turned him into a different Mushfiqur. He is in dire need of a big one against England, which would put his doubters to rest. But the change in his persona has been remarkable, and some believe that his changed attitude is having an effect on his form on the field.The straight-shooter who took on the powerful even two years ago has slowly turned into a man who needs runs and to sharpen his wicketkeeping. There is very little chance of a question being raised about his commitment or place in the team, but Bangladesh rely on him for providing the push from the middle-order, and as a strong character in the middle who can take on the best bowling attacks in the world.Mushfiqur made only 56 runs in the three innings against Afghanistan, falling to the slog-sweep twice and before being dropped from the same shot at deep square-leg in the third game. Only he would know whats best for him, and sticking to ones strength is commendable, but sticking to a shot that is consistently letting him down could also be described as stubbornness.Behind the stumps, Mushfiqur had an even worse time against Afghanistan. He missed three catches in different times and a stumping that probably cost Bangladesh the second ODI. The lapses have led to renewed questions about his dual role in the team, an issue that dogged him throughout 2015.During the Afghanistan series however, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza backed Mushfiqur even after his missed stumping in the second game. He said that as long as Mushfiqur was professional in his on-field duties, there could be no complaints. But there is a growing concern within the Bangladesh dressing-room about the air of distraction that he has produced over the last few months. Some say that Mushfiqurs excessive training is weighing him down, and it is a popular sentiment now that he hasnt scored many runs. He usually arrives hours before his team-mates for training in Mirpur, and bats as long as possible. Even during match days, he has been known to arrive at the ground with an advance party, rather than his team-mates.In the past, Mushfiqur has gone through purple patches while training as much as he does now. But even great batsmen, such as Steve Waugh and Sachin Tendulkar, at different times of their illustrious careers, cut down on their training to sharpen their focus for the actual match. Waugh wrote about this phenomenon in his autobiography while Tendulkar opted out of net sessions for the entire 2003 World Cup.It is unknown whether he has been told to reduce his intensity in training, in keeping with many details of Mushfiqurs life these days. But when Shakib Al Hasan recently said that doing the job in the middle is more important than the hours spent in training, there was naturally some comparison between the two players who went to the same sports institute in their teens and who made their ODI debuts in the same match at Harare in 2006. But Shakib and Mushfiqur are vastly different people, so it is also natural for them to have varied approaches to training.It is not hard to notice how Mushfiqurs persona changed after this years World T20, particularly following the match against India in which he celebrated before the win was sealed. He got out the next ball, and Bangladessh went on to lose by one run.dddddddddddd The public reaction veered from numbness to outrage but there were very few in Bangladeshs mainstream media who blamed him directly. Mushfiqur however made the mistake of tweeting his happiness when India exited the tournament in the semi-final. He quickly deleted the tweets but it was bound to become viral and remain in the search engines as screenshots. The direct abuse he took was brutal, and some weeks later he was reportedly reprimanded by the BCB.For a long time, Mushfiqur had maintained his distance from the media, and more so now. It is natural for him to feel hard done by, although he has had to answer public questions about the India match just the once, and none about the tweets. But Bangladesh cricketers have often mistaken social media reaction with that of the mainstream medias.Recent poor form, off-field distraction and trouble with the media has made life quite complicated for a man who was, for a long time, regarded as a straightforward person who wasnt afraid of consequences, whether it was about a faltering teammate, a disorganized league or the ICC. Mushfiqur remains the only international captain to speak against the Big Three for proposing the two-tier Test system in January 2014. With the BCB eventually siding with the powerful, his message wouldnt have gone down well with his bosses.When Mohammad Ashraful was suspended by the BCB in mid-2013 after admitting involvement with match-fixing in the 2013 BPL, Mushfiqur blasted him, calling it a betrayal of the nation. He was the first Bangladeshi player to talk about non-payments in the first edition of the BPL. He nearly lost his captaincy as the board wasnt happy with his comments.If things arent up to his standards, he will speak out. He can be emotional too, and has quit the captaincy at least three times in the last three years. He first did so minutes after Bangladesh had lost an ODI series against Zimbabwe in 2013, only to be coaxed back a few weeks later. He also gave away the role during the 2015 BPL and in this years Dhaka Premier League. Mushfiqur has every right to take such decisions, but misinterpretation becomes a natural reaction when he doesnt send the message across to the public domain.Even then, it is his choice whether he wants to talk to the media or not. But he should also understand that when there are so many questions about his decisions and actions, some level of culpability falls on him. It clears perceptions and gives him a more objective outlook. When he looked angry at the Big Threes proposal two years ago, journalists asked him how he felt about Bangladesh being threatened with the loss of their Test status. His reply was objective, and he didnt hold back.Theres no doubt that he is the same Mushfiqur but the indignation that began after losing his ODI and T20 captaincy in 2014 was thought to have disappeared through his run-making in 2015. But another spate of incidents, and his distance from the public, culminated in him becoming a batsman seeking runs desperately. Only Mushfiqur himself would know how to get out of this rut - whether that is through a lot more batting in the nets, by creating more distance between himself and the media, or by changing tack completely and starting afresh.
