ANAHEIM, Calif. Gabe Speier Jersey . -- Mike Trout greeted Brad Boxberger with a three-run walkoff homer to cap a four-run ninth inning and give the Los Angeles Angels a 6-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. Rays closer Grant Balfour came on in the ninth to try and protect a 5-2 lead for Erik Bedard, but walked his first two batters before giving up an RBI single by Collin Cowgill. Trout jumped on a 1-1 pitch from Boxberger (0-1) and drove it into the top tier of the double-decker bullpen in left field for his eighth homer. Fernando Salas (3-0) pitched a perfect inning to get the victory. Angels manager Mike Scioscia won two replay challenges with his team at bat. Both were against second base umpire Jim Reynolds on tag plays in the fifth and seventh innings, although the Angels didnt score in either inning. Angels starter Tyler Skaggs gave up five runs and eight hits in six-plus innings, remaining winless in five starts at Angel Stadium this season with a 6.91 ERA. Brandon Guyer hit his first home run of the season and centre fielder Desmond Jennings robbed C.J. Cron of a two-run homer as Bedard took a 4-0 lead into the sixth. The left-hander was charged with two unearned runs and four hits through 5 2-3 innings and struck out five. Rays first baseman James Loney, playing in on the grass, allowed a two-out grounder by Erick Aybar to get under his glove with runners at the corners in the sixth. Howie Kendrick scored on Loneys third error of the season, ending a string of 22 consecutive scoreless innings by Tampa Bay pitchers -- five short of the franchise record set last September. Pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez greeted Brandon Gomes with an RBI single before Jake McGee came in and struck out Grant Green. Guyer chased Skaggs with a leadoff homer in the seventh to give Tampa Bay a three-run lead. In the fourth, Jennings took away Crons bid for his third big league homer and first at Angel Stadium with a leaping grab in left-centre -- two innings after Guyer raced in from left field to make a diving grab of Crons Texas Leaguer. Thanks to Jennings catch, Bedard has thrown 46 1-3 consecutive innings without allowing a home run since last Sept. 16, when he was pitching for Houston and gave up a 2-run shot by Cincinnatis Zack Cozart at Minute Maid Park. Tampa Bay scored three runs in the sixth. Jimenez, making his fifth start at third base while David Freese remains on the disabled list, went into the hole for Wil Myers sixth-inning grounder with Aybar standing right behind Jimenez waiting for the ball. It deflected off Jimenezs glove and into short left field, and Myers was credited with an RBI double. Loney, who leads Tampa Bay with 24 RBIs, doubled inside first base two batters later to drive in another run. NOTES: The Rays put switch-hitting 2B Ben Zobrist on the 15-day DL because of a dislocated left thumb, which he injured on a headfirst slide while trying to steal second base in Wednesdays 2-0 victory at Seattle. The nine-year veteran doesnt intend to abandon the headfirst approach. "Ill keep sliding headfirst -- probably with an oven mitt on my hand, or something to protect it," he joked. ... Angels LF Josh Hamilton, who hasnt played since tearing a ligament in his left thumb on a headfirst slide into first base April 8, took live batting practice for the first time since the injury and is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment late next week. ... Rays RHP Alex Cobb, sidelined since April 13 because of an oblique strain on his left side, is scheduled to make a rehab start on Saturday with Class-A Charlotte and will be limited to five innings or 75 pitches. Royals Jerseys 2020 . Obasi chested the ball past one defender, prodded it past another and then rounded the keeper before scoring from a tight angle in the 16th minute. Seconds after the restart, Obasi set up Klaas Jan Huntelaar for the Dutchmans 11th goal from 13 games this season. Cam Gallagher Jersey . "I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told TSN.ca with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season. https://www.cheaproyals.com/557a-kevin-mccarthy-jersey-royals.html . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and listen on TSN 690. The Canadiens have won three in a row and four of their last five games and recently put the finishing touches on a 3-1-0 road trip. LOS ANGELES -- Despite having the NBAs best record, the Indiana Pacers realize theres always room for improvement. David West scored 14 of his 24 points in the third quarter and grabbed 12 rebounds, Paul George had 27 points, and the Pacers improved their best start in franchise history to 16-1 on Sunday with a 105-100 victory that snapped the Los Angeles Clippers four-game winning streak. "We can become a lot better. Were still nowhere close to where we want to be offensively, and thats the next step for us," George said. "The defence is clicking well, the transition defence is clicking well, and were playing like a team. This was a great win for us. We knew coming in that it was going to be a hard-fought game." Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 20 points -- the 10th time this season that a Pacers opponent didnt have anyone with more than 20. Chris Paul had 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Blake Griffin scored 16 and pulled down 12 rebounds, equaling teammate DeAndre Jordans total. "Were always up for a challenge, and we had a good one today," said centre Roy Hibbert, who helped fuel the Pacers seventh straight win with 19 points. "The Clippers are going to be a contender for the Western Conference finals, so we just had to get in there and grind it out today and finish it off. But we have a lot more work to do. We dont worry about swagger. Were just five individuals out there on the court playing together." The defending Pacific Division champion Clippers played their first game since finding out that J.J. Redick will be sidelined six to eight weeks because of a broken bone in his shooting hand and a ligament tear in his right elbow. Redick will be re-evaluated on Monday by hand specialist Dr. Steve Shin to determine what further course of treatment will be necessary. His injuries, which occurred in Friday nights 104-98 overtime win at Sacramento, complicated things even more for the Clippers with reserve forward Matt Barnes missing his sixth straight game due to an eye injury. "The ligament looks intact, so they shouldnt have to operate on that," Redick said. "Its just the fragments of the bone. Its still swollen and theres some pain there. Its frustrating, because I have enjoyed those 17 gammes immensely. Scott Blewett Jersey. " Los Angeles used the same starting lineup in each of its first 16 games before Paul sat out Fridays game with a right hamstring strain. Rivers opted to continue using Jamal Crawford off the bench despite his 31-point outing at Sacramento, so Willie Green started in Redicks place and scored only two points in 15 minutes. West capped a 13-3 run with an 18-footer and two free throws to give the Pacers their biggest lead, 74-60, with 4:48 left in the third. Los Angeles closed to 93-89 on Jordans dunk off an alley-oop lob from backup point guard Darren Collison with 7:12 to play. Paul set up another one by Jordan with 1:05 to go, pulling the Clippers within 102-100. "Its going to happen. I mean, the way CP can move the ball and throw the ball up, were not going to take that lob away," George said. "But were not going to give up 3s and were not going to let their shooters get hot." The Clippers had a chance to tie it again after a missed 3-point shot by Lance Stephenson at the other end. But Paul missed a 15-footer that rattled around the rim, and the Pacers made three of four free throws in the final 6.9 seconds to put it away. "I had two great looks at the end," Paul said. "If I make one of those shots it ties the game up and puts pressure on them, so I was mad and disgusted in myself because I got the shot that I wanted." George powered the Pacers to a 53-47 halftime lead with 18 points. The Clippers trailed by 11 late in the first quarter before taking their only lead, 41-40, on a dunk by Griffin with 3:05 left in the half. NOTES: The Pacers began a five-game road trip that includes matchups with the top-four teams in the Western Conference -- including Portland, San Antonio and Oklahoma City. ... The Clippers start a seven-game trip on Wednesday night, all against teams that dont have a winning record. ... The Pacers blocked four shots, increasing their NBA-best total to 125. Hibbert leads the league with 61. ... The Pacers, who came in averaging 19.4 points off turnovers, converted 12 Clippers turnovers into 17 points. ... The Clippers shot 43.9 per cent against the Pacers, who came in with the NBAs best defensive field goal percentage (38.7) and the fewest points allowed per game (85.6). ' ' '
