ights icing up before

    导出博客文章NEW YORK -- A.J. Ellis didnt wait long to endear himself to the Philadelphia
    Phillies. All he needed was three at-bats.Ellis got a big hit in his
    Philadelphia debut, breaking a seventh-inning tie with a two-run double Sunday
    that sent the Phillies to a 5-1 victory over the New York Mets.Philadelphia
    salvaged the series finale after getting outscored 21-5 in the first two
    games.Regardless of whats happened the last four days, it feels good to drive in
    runs, Ellis said. It feels good to help put your team ahead and contribute to a
    team win.Ellis was acquired Thursday from the Los Angeles Dodgers in a trade for
    longtime Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz. The veteran backstop, the longest-tenured
    Dodgers player in the organization at the time of the deal, arrived Saturday and
    started getting to know his new teammates and pitching staff.We heard about his
    disappointment in L.A., but the minute he got here and I talked to him, he put
    it behind him, he was fine, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. It was great to
    see him get that big hit, for himself and for the team. Im sure he feels more
    comfortable now.Ellis didnt just help at the plate. He guided young starter
    Vince Velasquez and four relievers as they quieted a streaking Mets lineup that
    was minus ailing sluggers Yoenis Cespedes (quad) and Neil Walker (back).It was a
    lot more fun catching those guys than hitting against them, Ellis joked.New York
    also lost shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera in the first inning. He exited with
    soreness in his left knee, a problem area that sidelined him twice earlier this
    year.Mets manager Terry Collins indicated that his three injured players might
    require daily checkups for the remainder of the season.Well have to continue to
    monitor how they feel each day, he said. But with the way all of a sudden weve
    played here in the last four or five days, it took a little air out of the
    balloon.The score was 1-all in the seventh when Philadelphia loaded the bases
    with nobody out on singles by Tommy Joseph, Aaron Altherr and Jimmy Paredes off
    Robert Gsellman (1-1), who was very effective to that point in his first major
    league start.Hansel Robles came on in relief and Ellis drove the right-handers
    fourth pitch over Curtis Grandersons head in left field, scoring Joseph and
    Altherr with his first hit for his new team.Ellis struck out and grounded out in
    his first two at-bats.Pinch-hitter Peter Bourjos was hit by a pitch from Robles
    with the bases loaded, forcing in another run.Cesar Hernandez added a sacrifice
    fly to make it 5-1.David Hernandez (3-3) pitched a scoreless inning for the
    win.Philadelphia squandered two chances to score early in the game, when Freddy
    Galvis was thrown out at home on a failed squeeze attempt and Altherr was cut
    down at the plate on Paredes fourth-inning RBI double.Velasquez allowed five
    hits in five innings while striking out seven. The 24-year-old right-hander had
    struggled of late, allowing 19 runs and 25 hits over his previous 16 1/3
    innings. But he improved on his success against the Mets, lowering his ERA
    versus New York to 1.76 (three earned runs in 15 1/3 innings).Talking to A.J.
    when he got here, and just today before the outing, he was like, `Just trust
    your stuff, Velasquez said.Philadelphia had lost the previous seven games
    Velasquez started, dating to July 19.At (24) years old, hes got a lot to learn,
    but hes got the stuff to be really good, Mackanin said.The Mets entered having
    scored 31 runs over their last three games, including three homers by Cabrera
    during that span.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: Bourjos was hit by a 97 mph fastball on
    the left wrist. After crouching down in pain behind home plate, he went to first
    base.Mets: LHP Steven Matz (shoulder) threw a bullpen and is expected to throw
    another one before coming off the disabled list to start Thursday against Miami
    rather than Wednesday, Collins said.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Jake Thompson (1-3,
    9.78 ERA) opens a three-game series against NL East-leading Washington, his
    fifth major league start. Hes failed to reach the sixth inning in any of his
    previous four. Tanner Roark (13-7, 2.99 ERA) pitches for the Nationals.Mets: RHP
    Rafael Montero (0-0, 11.57 ERA) has the difficult task of facing All-Star RHP
    Jose Fernandez (13-7, 2.91) in his first big league start of the season as the
    Mets begin an important four-game series with Miami at Citi Field. Montero will
    be recalled from Double-A Binghamton on Monday and last pitched in the majors on
    April 19. He struggled at Triple-A Las Vegas, but had a 1.70 ERA in eight starts
    at Binghamton.

    . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the
    first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for
    ticket and merchandise purchases. There are a couple of moments in Gary Rohans
    AFL career hell be happy never to re-live.The first, unsurprisingly, is the
    sickening leg injury suffered in 2012 that to this day remains a source of
    on-field anxiety.But equally torturous for the Sydney forward is the Swans 2014
    grand-final loss.That 63-point mauling by Hawthorn was supposed to be his time,
    the chance so cruelly denied two years earlier by the compound fracture that
    forced him to watch from the sidelines as his team won the premiership.I
    remember the first bounce, then Hawthorn came out and hit us hard, Rohan
    recalled.Watching them getting their medals really hurt.Then I was in the rooms
    with the family.It was a very dark time.I dont want this feeling again so Ill be
    making the most of it not have that feeling again.Ten days ago he felt sure that
    dark place would swallow him back up when an injury scare against Adelaide
    threatened to yank another shot at that elusive flag out from under his
    feet.Rohan was stretchered from the SCG with a knee injury to the same leg he
    broke, convinced this season - and probably the next - was over.But the
    25-year-old was cleared of structural damage and made a remarkable recovery to
    play in last weekends preliiminary-final win over Geelong.dddddddddddd thought I
    did something serious, he said.I was devastated and shattered that I might miss
    out for the rest of the season.A lot of it comes from upstairs. Ive got to stop
    thinking the worst straight away, but from that leg in 2012 its pretty hard not
    to.As soon as I got the (scan) result I was happy, then I had a couple of
    sleepless nights icing up before training on Wednesday.Now, four quarters away
    from a premiership, Rohan will line up against the Western Bulldogs at the MCG
    on Saturday.He acknowledges the heartbreak of 2014 was not entirely wasted as he
    took from it valuable lessons about controlling pre-game emotions.And hell do
    whatever it takes to ensure that this time, when he hugs his family afterwards,
    hell have a medal draped around his neck.Personally it would mean a lot, not
    just for me but for my family as well with what Ive been through, he said.Theyve
    been with me from when I got drafted and also the down days of my broken leg and
    all my injuries.So hopefully we come up with a win and pay them back for all the
