CHICAGO — The Royals are complementing their solid defence and pitching with a potent offence. Matt Stajan Jersey . Salvador Perez hit a three-run homer and Kansas City completed a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox with a 6-3 win Sunday. James Shields (8-3) won his fifth straight decision and the Royals extended their season-high win streak to seven games. Shields pitched out of trouble throughout his outing. Shields allowed three runs and 10 hits in six innings. Greg Holland pitched a scoreless ninth for his 20th save in 21 chances. The Royals havent lost with Shields on the mound since May 2, and hes 5-0 in eight starts because of the Royals 42 runs of support. Eric Hosmer also hit a two-run home run for the Royals. „This series we played on all cylinders,“ Shields said. „We pitched, we hit, we played some good defence. We drew our walks, we had good situational hitting and good timely hitting. „I think this is the first series all year that we really hit on all cylinders, so it is nice to see. Alejandro De Aza had a two-run double for the White Sox, who lost their fourth straight game. Starter Andre Rienzo (4-4) allowed six runs and six hits in six innings. The White Sox have lost 10 of their past 11 home games against the Royals been outscored 53-20 in them. „Obviously theyre playing good baseball and were scuffling a little bit,“ Gordon Beckham said. „You know, its part of (the game). Its frustrating, but we played a pretty good game today. Grinding out at-bats, try to do some good things. It just didnt go our way.“ With one out in the first inning, Hosmer connected on a 1-2 pitch for a two-run shot to centre. It was his fourth of the season. „Were getting off to early leads,“ Hosmer said. „Were giving our pitchers breathing room early. The way they have been throwing for us all year they have been lights out. Now to give them nice breathing room early and get some leads and not let them to be fine with their pitches and let them go out there and let the defence work.“ With the Royals up 2-1 in the third inning with two outs, Billy Butler was hit by Rienzos pitch. Alex Gordon drew a walk then Perez followed with a home run to left, giving the Royals a 5-1 lead. It was Perezs seventh of the season. Mike Moustakas scored from second on Jarrod Dysons RBI single in the fourth inning after he was initially ruled out on a force at second base. The call was overturned after a challenge. Adam Eaton led off the first inning with a hard grounder that went underneath Hosmers glove at first. Eaton wound up with a stand-up triple. One pitch later, Shields appeared to have Eaton picked off at third base, but plate umpire Paul Emmel ruled that Shields did not step off the rubber and awarded Eaton home. Royals manager Ned Yost argued the balk and was tossed by Emmel as he was headed back to the dugout. Yost then confronted Emmel for another animated conversation before leaving the game. „I said something when I was walking away that made me sit in this office,“ Yost said. „I dont think I ever got kicked out before the first out in the bottom of the first. I just felt really strongly that was a good play.“ De Aza had a two-run double off Shields in the fourth inning. NOTES: Yost was ejected for the third time this season. … White Sox LHP John Danks is scheduled to start on Tuesday against the Giants. He is 2-1 with a 2.11 ERA in his past three starts. … Eaton finished the game with three hits. … White Sox C Tyler Flowers had the day off. He is in a 0-for-22 slump. After a strong start Flowers average has dropped to .250. Joe Nieuwendyk Jersey . The Detroit Tigers star had microfracture surgery Friday to repair the medial and lateral meniscus in his left knee. „I dont want to say it was a surprise,“ team president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said. Al MacInnis Jersey . Numbers Game looks into the Wild getting Matt Moulson from Buffalo. The Wild Get: LW Matt Moulson and LW Cody McCormick.SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Tiger Woods helped attract a record, raucous crowd to the Phoenix Open on Thursday, the first big event in a week that concludes with the Super Bowl.They didnt see much of a game — at least not from Woods.In his first appearance at the TPC Scottsdale in 14 years — and only his second tournament in six months — Woods couldnt hit the green with three chip shots and was near the bottom of the leaderboard until two key shots on the back nine salvaged a 2-over 73.It was the first time in his career that Woods shot over par in his first round of the year. And he already was nine shots behind Ryan Palmer, who opened with a 7-under 64 to build a one-shot lead when play was suspended by darkness.This is my second tournament in six months, so I just need tournament rounds like this where I can fight through it, turn it around, grind through it and make adjustments on the fly, Woods said.He was 5 over through 11 holes when Woods hit a 5-iron to a foot for a tap-in eagle on the 13th hole. After making it through the par-3 16th hole, where he twice had to back off shots when someone shouted as he stood over the ball, he hit his best drive of the day that bounded onto the green at the par-4 17th and set up a two-putt birdie.The fans didnt seem to mind. They were happy to see golfs biggest star at their outdoor party for the first time since 2001, back when Woods was No. 1 in the world and headed for an unprecedented sweep of the majors.The attendance was 118,461 — more than the Super Bowl will get on Sunday — and broke the Thursday record at the Phoenix Open by just over 30,000.What they saw was a player who suddenly has developed grave issues with his short game — particularly his chipping.Woods is working with a new swing consultant, Chris Como, who is not in Phoenix this week. He still has trouble taking his game from the practice range to the golf course, which is nothing new. But when he last played, at the Hero World Challenge, what stood out was a series of chips that he either stubbed or bladed.Two months later, nothing changed.The focus on Woods quickly shifted from a chipped tooth to simply his chipping.Woods twice chipped with 4-irons, which he called my old-school shots from Augusta. On two other occasions, one after a chip he knocked across and over the green, he opted for a putter. It wasnt a bad play, but it used to be rare to see Woods choose to putt from the fairway instead of chip.He attributed it to the change in his swing.Im just having a hard time finding the bottom, Woods ssaid. Matt Bartkowski Jersey. Because of my old pattern, I was so steep on it that I have a new grind on my wedge and sometimes its hard to trust. Some of my shots were into the green with tight pins and either Ill flop it or bump it, one of the two. I chose to bump it.Palmer was 10-under par through 10 holes last week in the Humana Challenge and settled for a 61. He was 7 under through 12 holes on Thursday and then closed with six straight pars for a 64.That gave him a one-shot lead over Keegan Bradley, who made seven birdies in the morning, and Masters champion Bubba Watson, whose tee shot on the 17th hole rolled a few inches from the cup and settled 4 feet away.Woods was in the group ahead of him, and its customary for players to step aside when theyre on the 17th green to let the others hit their tee shots. Woods smiled when Watson approached and told him, Good shot.Watson also got caught up in the crowd, a benefit of playing so close to Woods.I could feel his crowd was really big, Watson said. You could feel it, the energy, even with the weather the way it was. People still showed up. People still had a blast. And obviously, Tiger created a lot of that.Bradley could sense it, too, even though he played on the opposite side of the draw. Bradley finished his round on No. 9 and hit what he thought was a great approach, except that he wasnt sure because no one was clapping. He turned to his caddie and asked him if it went over the green, or maybe even short of the green. And then he walked up to the green and saw it was 10 feet away. Thats when the light came on.Tiger was on the second green. No one was watching me, Bradley said with a laugh. Its just amazing to see the draw that Tiger has. Wow, there was a lot of people.They saw some good golf — just not very often from Woods.The crowd rose to its feet as Woods walked from the putting green to the first tee, and the anticipation began to build when the starter announced him as the winner of 79 PGA Tour events and 14 majors. He had 24 wins and five majors the last time he played.And then Woods sent his tee shot off the backyard wall of a house and back into the desert. He made the turn in 39 — his age.But he didnt have to chip again on the back nine, played better, hit two great shots (for eagle and birdie) and walked off with reasonable hopes of making it to the weekend. Woods hasnt played much of late from back injuries and recovery time. Even so, he made it clear that it could take time to heal — certainly quicker than getting his teeth fixed. Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys Cheap Real Madrid Jerseys Cheap Barcelona Jerseys Cheap Borussia Dortmund Jerseys Cheap USA Soccer Jerseys Cheap USWNT Jerseys Cheap France Soccer Jerseys Cheap Mexico Jerseys Cheap Portugal Jerseys Cheap Germany Jerseys Cheap Albania Soccer Jerseys Cheap Algeria Soccer Jerseys Cheap Czech Soccer Jerseys Cheap Croatia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Cote dIvoire Soccer Jerseys Cheap Costa Rica Soccer Jerseys Cheap Colombia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Chile Soccer Jerseys Cheap Cameroon Soccer Jerseys Cheap Brazil Soccer Jerseys ‚ ‚ ‚
