    a huge incentive for Reds youngsters to impress boss Jurgen Klopp when they
    report back for pre-season training. Liverpool play the Spanish giants in the
    International Champions Cup at Wembley on August 6, after tackling Chelsea and
    AC Milan in the same competition in America.And Randall, who made his first-team
    debut in the Capital One Cup win over Bournemouth last October, is
    understandably excited by the prospect of playing for the Reds in front of a
    sell-out crowd at the home of English football. A few of my mates texted me when
    it was announced and its a big motivation for everyone because its two massive
    clubs playing at Wembley Stadium, he told Sky Sports.Everyone will be coming
    back trying to impress the manager but to be involved would be unbelievable. Its
    going to be a great match and games like that are what you play the game
    for.Randall ended his breakthrough season on a positive note after helping the
    clubs U21 side to a 2-2 against Sacramento Republic in Reno on Wednesday night.
    Liverpool will face Barcelona at Wembley on August 6 Ryan Kent and Cameron
    Brannagan - who also made their first-team debuts last season - were on target
    for the young Reds in the draw, which saw Liverpool become the first Premier
    League club ever to visit the US state of Nevada.We werent aware of it before we
    came out but it was a big moment and its always good to make a bit of history,
    said Randall, who has been at Liverpool since he was six.Were on the other side
    of the world but loads of people have come to watch us train, showing all the
    lads how big this club is and what it means to play for Liverpool.The support is
    massive everywhere and it reminds us how lucky we are to be a part of it. It
    spurs me on and hopefully I can be involved when the first-team return to
    America at the end of July. Jurgen Klopp has given chances to some of Liverpools
    youngsters Versatile youngster Randall was deployed at right-back by Klopp in a
    season where Liverpool played 63 matches, finishing runners-up in the Capital
    One Cup and Europa League finals.The 20-year old was handed a new deal last
    December and ended the 2015/16 season with seven first-team appearances in all
    competitions under his belt.Its been a fantastic season for me and if someone
    had told me it would pan out like this, I probably wouldnt have believed them,
    he added.Its a bit of a blur looking back on my debut now because it was all I
    ever wanted and it was a pretty surreal moment. I was also in the last year of
    my deal and getting a new contract was definitely my goal, so I was very pleased
    with that.Now its about getting my head down and working hard to keep to
    continue to pushing on and improve as a player. Thats my goal ahead of the new
    season. Also See: Reds to play Barca Balotelli to return Liverpool sign Karius

    .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the
    right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental
    upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and
    savvy play.(Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays look to earn a split of
    their two game series against the San Francisco Giants when the two clubs meet
    this afternoon. The Blue Jays wasted a solid effort in the return of starting
    pitcher Josh Johnson, who was in action during yesterdays 2-1 loss, for the
    first time since April 21 because of a biceps injury. Johnson allowed two runs
    -- one earned -- and six hits in seven frames against the Giants, struck out six
    and did not walk a batter. Johnson surrendered a crucial homer to Torres early
    on. "If he hits it out there, you have to tip your cap to him," Johnson said of
    Torres homer that cleared the wall in center field. "Thats a pretty deep part of
    the ballpark." Johnson, though, said he felt good to get back to work despite
    the loss. "It felt good to be out there and to go to battle with these guys," he
    said. "Unfortunately I made a couple of mistakes I cant take back but they were
    huge." Toronto, which has lost four of five games, got on the board first thanks
    to Edwin Encarnacions solo home run in the first inning. Encarnacion has homered
    in back-to-back games and has three in the past four. Former Giants All-Star
    outfielder Melky Cabrera was back in the bay area for the first time and
    finished 2-for-4 at the plate. Cabrera, of course, was suspended last season for
    violating the leagues substance abuse policy and has been recently linked to a
    Florida clinic for performance-enhancing supplements. Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz
    and Alex Rodriguez have also been included in the report on the Biogenesis
    anti-aging clinic. In other Toronto news, shortstop Jose Reyes, who hasnt played
    since April 12, is coming along in his recovery with a left ankle injury.
    According to the clubs website, Reyes has been traveling with the team and
    performing daily strengthening drills. He is expected to begin a rehab
    assignment in a couple of weeks. "Its close, not that far away," Reyes told the
    teams site Tuesday. "The biggest thing is to be able to go out and run the bases
    on back-to-back days and go from there. If Im able to do that, even if Im not
    100 percent I feel like I can help this ballclub. "Even at 85 to 90 percent, Im
    going to be on the field and Ill go to do my assignment and get back here as
    soon as possible." After the Jays wrap up this quick set in San Francisco, they
    will return to Rogers Centre for a three-game weekend set versus the Texas
    Rangers. it has been a rough two starts for Jays starter R.A. Dickey and he will
    take the mound Wednesday afternoon in hopes of turning his season around. Dickey
    has allowed six runs in each of his last two outings, going 0-2 with an 8.53
    earned run average in that time, and is only 2-5 in his past seven decisions.
    Dickey was hammered at Atlanta on Thursday and gave up six runs and 11 hits in
    six innings of an 11-3 setback. "It hurts, because I felt like I was missing
    barrels today," Dickey said. "I mightt have given up four hard-hit balls all
    night.dddddddddddd It was just tough. It seemed like every ball off their bat
    would find a hole somewhere or a little space in the outfield." The
    knuckleballer is 4-7 with a 5.18 ERA in 12 starts and has pitched at least six
    innings in 11 of those. Dickey, who is 1-3 in five road starts, defeated San
    Francisco on May 14, when he struck out a season-high 10 batters over six
    innings of two-run ball in a 10-6 win. The right-hander and reigning NL Cy Young
    Award winner is 1-1 with a 3.81 ERA in four career starts against the Giants.
    Meanwhile, the Giants took the opener of this two-game set as Andres Torres
    two-run homer in the second inning stood as the game-winning hit and Tim
    Lincecum put together seven innings of one-run ball on the mound. He struck out
    six batters and issued just three hits and one walk. "Working my fastball to
    both sides of the plate, that was the biggest thing today," Lincecum said. "It
    opened up my secondary pitches. I expanded the zone and tried to stay
    aggressive." Lincecum had dropped his previous three starts. Jeremy Affeldt
    worked around a hit during a scoreless eighth inning and Sergio Romo did the
    same in the ninth for his 16th save. Gregor Blanco had a team- high two hits for
    the Giants, who were coming off Sundays 4-2 win over St. Louis and have
    prevailed in consecutive games since dropping two in a row and five of six. The
    defending World Series champion Giants are still two games behind Arizona for
    the NL West lead and will start a nine-game road trip Friday against the
    Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Giants catcher Buster Posey finished 1-for-4 on
    Tuesday and is the leading vote-getter in NL All-Star balloting. Third baseman
    Pablo Sandoval also leads the Senior Circuit in votes at his position and was
    back in action Tuesday after missing the weekend series against the Cardinals
    with a strained left foot. Sandoval was 0-for-3 versus the Blue Jays. Giants
    veteran starter Barry Zito was able to halt a personal winless streak his last
    time out and looks to build on a strong performance Wednesday versus the Jays.
    Zito was 0-2 with a 4.64 earned run average in six starts before holding Oakland
    to a run and three hits in six innings of Thursdays 5-2 win. Zito had given up
    14 runs in his previous three starts and managed to defeat the Athletics despite
    having six walks to five strikeouts. The left-hander and 2002 AL Cy Young Award
    winner was rocked at Toronto on May 14 in a 10-6 loss and yielded eight runs --
    five earned -- and 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Zito, who is 4-0 in seven home
    starts this season, has a 5-4 mark to go along with a 3.82 ERA in 12 career
    starts against the Blue Jays. The Giants are 7-0 when Zito toes the rubber at
    AT&T Park this season. San Francisco lost both of its meetings in Toronto
    from May 14-15 and is just 2-5 in the past seven matchups between the teams. The
    Giants were outscored, 21-9, in those two games north of the border. ' ' '
