ST. http://www.eurocopaespanashop.es/camiseta-blank-euro-2016.html . LOUIS - After getting a second opinion, Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright had what the team described as minor elbow surgery on Friday.The operation was an arthroscopic procedure to trim a small piece of cartilage from the right elbow, according to the Cardinals. The 33-year-old Wainwright is expected to begin physical therapy in two weeks and resume his off-season throwing program in eight weeks.General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny faced repeated questions about Wainwrights health when he had two poor post-season starts before finishing strong in the Giants clinching win in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series.Wainwright failed to get out of the fifth inning in the division series opener against the Dodgers and in Game 1 against San Francisco, blaming poor mechanics rather than injury or fatigue after both outings.Mozeliak and Matheny made no mention of the injury at a news conference to review the season earlier this week. Matheny said medical tests all came back negative.Wainwright went 20-9 with a career-low 2.38 ERA in 32 starts this season. The team said an initial MRI came back negative.His elbow garnished a lot of attention, especially in October, Matheny said Monday. His last start, he felt great. The rest should do him wonders.Wainwright, who missed the 2011 season after undergoing reconstructive elbow surgery, requested additional tests. The findings of a second MRI resulted in the decision to operate.The Cardinals have gone to the NLCS for four straight seasons and won the World Series in 2011, putting a heavy load on Wainwright and former ace Chris Carpenter.Including the post-season, Wainwright has pitched a major league-high 512 2-3 innings the last two years. He was 5-0 this September, helping St. Louis wrap up its second straight Central division title.Wainwright also won 20 games in 2009 and has won 19 games twice.http://www.eurocopaespanashop.es/camiseta-espa-a-eurocopa-2016-primera-equipacion-hombre-adidas-7-alvaro-morata-autenticas-rojas-uefa-campeones-futbol-jersey.html . -- Ben Crane has waited so long to contend for another PGA Tour title that being patient through weather delays is no problem at all.Camiseta Cesc Fabregas España . Goran Dragic scored 29 points, Eric Bledsoe had a career-high 28 and the Suns extended their season-high winning streak to four games by beating the Sacramento Kings 116-107 on Friday night. PITTSBURGH -- Edinson Volquez couldnt seem to find the strike zone in the first inning of his start against the Philadelphia Phillies, throwing 11 of his 16 pitches for balls. After escaping the jam unscathed, he got some advice from pitching coach Ray Searage. The rest of the way went smoothly with Volquez allowing a run over seven innings, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Phillies 3-2 Saturday. "He slowed me down," Volquez said. "I was too fast to the plate and everything was late with my hands to get the ball where I wanted." The adjustment worked. "I could see the strike zone a little closer to me and I felt like I could put the ball where I wanted," Volquez said. Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer in the first and Volquez (7-6) had an RBI groundout with the bases loaded in the second inning as the Pirates moved a season-high five games over .500 at 46-41. The Pirates couldve added to the 3-0 lead but Gregory Polanco Starling Marte each flew out with men on second and third. Volquez allowed four hits and walked four. He struck out five in his third straight win. "He battled," manager Clint Hurdle said. "It was a very, I thought, gritty performance by him today because he spent a lot of time out of the stretch again." McCutchen followed up Fridays game, when he was a home run shy of the cycle, with the big hit off David Buchanan. McCutchen connected to right after Polanco led off the home first with a single. McCutchen said it was nice to begin his day with a home run after he ended Friday with a ball that smacked the wall about 10 feet lower than necessary to clear it. "I got a little better swing on it," McCutchen said. "(I) got out in front of it a little more so I was able to get hands through the zone and put a little more backspin on it." Hurdle was pleased his team jumped on top early, similar to the way the Pirates scored four runs in the first inning Friday. "Its always nice to get in front," he said. Camisetas Personalizadas Online. "It does give you a sense of momentum coming out of the chute." Philadelphia dropped a season-high 13 games below .500 at 37-50. "We havent been able to bounce back from being down early in the game," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Its been different when weve scored early. Its something were going to have to try and do, score earlier in games." Buchanan (4-5) found his stride after the second and kept the Pirates at bay until he was lifted in the sixth. Philadelphias starter was charged with three runs and six hits and an intentional walk. "The biggest thing for me today was not walking anybody," Buchanan said. "If you throw strikes and make them put it in play then good things usually happen." Marlon Byrd stranded five men on base in his first two at-bats. He flew out in the first to leave men on the corners, then struck on four pitches to end the third with the bases loaded. Byrd homered off Pirates closer Mark Melancon in the ninth but even an attempt at starting a rally wasnt enough to appease the right fielder after his earlier at-bats. "I have to do a better job producing in the first at-bat, too," Byrd said. "Bases loaded and I struck out. My job is to produce." Melancon retired to next three batters he faced for his 16th save. Tony Watson worked a perfect eighth. Cody Asche homered in the fourth for Philadelphia against Volquez. NOTES Asches home run in the fourth inning snapped a 16-inning scoreless streak for Volquez. .
