the most for a Dodgers pitcher since Ramon from miao1234's blog

Ndamukong Suh is the main reason why Detroit has the leagues best rushing defense. Iker Casillas Camiseta . Now that hes available for the Lions, NFL rushing champion DeMarco Murrays job got that much tougher heading into his first postseason game. The NFC East-champion Dallas Cowboys rode Murray all season to produce the leagues second-best rushing attack and figure to be severely tested by Suh and Detroits defensive front in Sundays wild-card playoff game in Arlington. You can catch all the action at 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt. on CTV. Suh was initially suspended for stepping on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers left leg twice last Sunday in a 30-20 loss that ended a four-game win streak and gave the Packers the North title. He stepped on Rodgers once with each foot, which violated unnecessary roughness rules, according to the league. However, hearing officer Ted Cottrell handled Suhs expedited appeal Tuesday and ruled that he can play at Dallas (12-4) but must pay an accompanying $70,000 fine. Suh made it clear Wednesday he wasnt going to elaborate on the matter. Im just pleased with the decision and glad I have the opportunity - I can go against Dallas and help my teammates win the game, he said. I think thats most important. Suhs short-lived suspension came after Detroit center Dominic Raiola served a one-game ban against the Packers for stepping on a Chicago player the week before. I know Im chomping at the bit to get back out there, Raiola said. I just think this team is hungry. The more shots that people take at us, the stronger we get, the tougher we get. Detroit (11-5) limited opponents to 69.3 rushing yards per game with 133 tackles for a loss to lead the league in both departments. Now the Lions face their biggest challenge in Murray, whose 1,845 rushing yards broke Emmitt Smiths franchise record and were the third-most in the NFL over the last eight seasons. His 12 100-yard efforts matched the second-highest total in league history. Murray and an offensive line that had three players named to the Pro Bowl are why Dallas (12-4) averaged 147.1 rushing yards to trail only Seattle. If you look at the numbers, theyll tell you that they run the ball obviously as well as anybody in the league and you look at it statistically for us, were right up there at the top in the rankings in terms of stopping the run, Detroit coach Jim Caldwell said. So all in all, I think its going to be a real good battle. The running game has clearly bolstered Tony Romo, who is considered an MVP candidate after he led the NFL in passer rating (career-best 113.2) and yards per attempt (8.52). He finished fourth in the league with 34 touchdown passes. The fact that weve gotten stronger and better on the offensive line has certainly helped, coach Jason Garrett said. The fact that were running the ball well and more certainly has helped him but Tony has played awfully well ... Hes the guy who orchestrates and leads everything we do on offense. Romo looks to improve on a 1-3 playoff record in his first postseason appearance in five seasons. Counterpart Matthew Stafford is in the postseason for the second time after losing to New Orleans to close the 2011 season. The Lions have rallied to win both times when Stafford has faced Romo. Detroit erased a 24-point, second-half deficit in a 34-30 road victory Oct. 2, 2011, in which Romo threw for three scores as well as three interceptions. It was the first game in Dallas for Stafford, who went to high school in the area. Its always fun to go back there and play, Stafford said. Ive done it once in my career so Im (going to) do it again, it should be fun. The Cowboys blew a 10-point lead with less than 4 minutes left when Stafford scored a on a winning one-yard run with 12 seconds to go in a 31-30 win at Detroit on Oct. 27, 2013. He also threw for 488 yards - many to Calvin Johnson. Johnson posted the best effort of his illustrious career as he had career highs of 14 receptions for 329 yards - the second-best total in NFL history. He topped 1,000 yards for the fifth straight year, though his total of 1,077 marked his lowest in that span for Detroit, which averaged 20.1 points to rank 22nd. Dez Bryant set a Cowboys record with an NFL-best 16 TD receptions to go with 1,320 receiving yards for a team averaging of 29.2 points to rank fifth. Dallas won its fourth straight with Sundays 44-17 rout at Washington and was one of five teams that tied for the NFLs best record. We know what we have to do and we did exactly what we wanted to do, Bryant said. We just have to keep fighting, have to keep playing together. The Cowboys did suffer a blow when defensive tackle Henry Melton was lost for the season with a right knee injury against the Redskins. Detroit has dropped 10 of 11 playoff games in the Super Bowl era and its current seven-game losing streak is one shy of the tying the record held by Kansas City, which hasnt won a playoff game since 1993. Dallas has won once in its last eight postseason contests and fifth-year coach Garrett will make his playoff debut against Caldwell, who is 2-2 and guided Indianapolis to the Super Bowl after the 2009 season. Camiseta Seleccion Española 2016 . No matter. The Pittsburgh Penguins star can handle things by himself when he needs to. Malkin scored in his return from a lower-body injury, Sidney Crosby added his 16th goal, and the Penguins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Monday night. Camiseta Iker Casillas España . The midfielder had an operation on Saturday, and is set to miss seven Premier League games, the third round of the FA Cup and the semifinals of the League Cup.LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Clayton Kershaw didnt get what all the fuss was about. After pitching Gerardo Parra away in his first at-bat and giving up a double, Kershaw went inside the next time and it cost him.Kershaw was ejected for hitting Parra on the right elbow, but the left-hander still got his 19th victory and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the NL West-leading Diamondbacks 3-2 Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing skid.The incident was a carryover from Tuesday nights game in which Parra momentarily stood at the plate to admire his solo homer off reliever Hong-Chih Kuo that tied the game in the seventh.Parra was annoyed Kuo had thrown an earlier pitch near his head, although afterward he said he didnt think it was deliberate.Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis yelled at Parra as he crossed the plate, and Kershaw shouted at Parra from the top step of the dugout. The umpires warned both benches against further trouble. The D-backs won 5-4 in 10 innings after scoring on a bases-loaded walk.Asked if he intentionally hit Parra, Kershaw replied, No, I didnt mean to.Kershaw singled out home plate umpire Bill Welke for ejecting him, along with manager Don Mattingly in the sixth inning.Hes too strict, Kershaw said. Bill is back there just trying to make sure that everything is OK. I understand that he has a job to do, but at the same time, just pay attention to the game and understand whats going on a little bit better.Kershaw (19-5) allowed one hit over five-plus innings. After Parras double, he retired the next seven batters in a row and then got ejected.Im not disappointed at all, he said. We got a win, it was awesome.After Kershaw was ejected, Mattingly rushed out of the dugout to argue with Welke.It was leftover from last night, crew chief Tim Tschida told a pool reporter.Tschida said Kershaws pitch was intentional. Told that the Dodgers believed Kershaw was merely pitching inside, Tschida responded, Its always that view.Kershaw left the game with a 2-0 lead. There was prolonged booing as he walked to the dugout and took a seat while Mattingly kept arguing.Mattingly said no official warnings were issued before the game, although Joe Torre, MLBs executive vice-president for baseball operations, called his former team to say he didnt want anything to happen.Asked if he thought Kershaw would be suspended, Mattingly replied, How do you get suspended for pitching inside, hitting a guy in the elbow thats on top of the plate?Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth to earn his fourtth save in five chances, giving up a RBI single to Miguel Montero. Camiseta Seleccion Española Eurocopa 2016. .Arizonas Daniel Hudson (16-10) gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings, struck out four and walked three.I still dont think it was on purpose, he said. A pitch just got away from Clayton and unfortunately, it was to the wrong guy — the guy who was in the middle of everything yesterday — and the umpire did what he had to do.Hudson said the D-backs were contacted by MLB beforehand and given a warning.We were told that if they thought there was any intent, we would be ejected and there would be some suspensions, he said.Parra watched the verbal fray from first base, where he stood with his arms crossed and a smug look on his face.I was ready for that. Im ready for anything. Hes pitching, Im hitting, and thats baseball, man, Parra said. Hes a good pitcher and he has good control, but he threw one pitch inside and then he threw another pitch that hit me. The umpire made the decision, and thats it.He was booed in his subsequent at-bat when he nearly tied the game with a long ball that right-fielder Jerry Sands caught at the wall. Ryan Roberts, who led off the eighth inning with a double, advanced to third after the catch and scored on a broken-bat grounder by pinch-hitter Geoff Blum.Kershaw tied Arizonas Ian Kennedy for the NL lead in victories, the most for a Dodgers pitcher since Ramon Martinez went 20-6 in 1990. The left-hander struck out five, giving him 236 on the season, just two behind Detroits Justin Verlander for the major league lead.The Dodgers took a 2-0 lead in the first on RBI singles by Matt Kemp and Sands. They added a run in the eighth on Aaron Miles RBI single that scored Kemp, who walked and stole second, to help them avoid being mathematically eliminated.NOTES: It was Kershaws second career ejection, and Mattinglys third in his first season as a manager. ... Dodgers RF Andre Ethier underwent arthroscopic surgery in a 35-minute procedure to clean up wear and tear behind his right knee cap. Hes expected to begin rehabilitation in a week in Arizona, where he lives in the off-season. ... Kemp notched his 110th RBI, becoming the first Dodger to reach that mark since Adrian Beltre had 121 in 2004. ...
