ST. Khyri Thomas Jersey . LOUIS -- A controversial 4-3 Cardinals?win could prove critical in the National League postseason race after umpires ruled that the Cincinnati Reds didnt declare their intention to challenge a call quickly enough at the conclusion of Thursday nights game.Yadier Molina doubled to left field with two outs and Matt Carpenter at first base in the bottom of the ninth inning at Busch Stadium. The ball caromed off an advertisement for the Missouri Lottery beyond the wall, and Carpenter raced home with the winning run.?However, the ball should have been ruled dead, forcing Carpenter to return to third. Cincinnati manager Bryan Price followed the umpires off the field and spoke with them in the tunnel, but according to the crew chief, the Reds call to review the play was too late and the winning run stood.?In this situation, Bryan Price did not come up on the top step [of the dugout],?crew chief Bill Miller told a pool reporter. We stayed there. I waited for my partners to come off the field. I looked into the dugout, the Cincinnati dugout, and Bryan Price made no eye contact with me whatsoever and then, after 30 seconds, he finally realized. Somebody must have told him what had happened, and we were walking off the field.Miller said none of the four umpires had an inkling the ball hit the sign, or they would have reviewed it themselves.Teams are supposed to demonstrate their intent to review a play within 10 seconds and make up their mind within 30 seconds, but on plays that end the game, that decision must be immediate, according to Replay Review Rule II D-3.Its a terrible rule, Price said. I mean, thats ridiculous.Price and staff didnt get the message fast enough from their video review crew.?Because of the crowd noise, we couldnt hear the phone ring, Price said. There was no siren or blinking light to let you know.As the Cardinals mobbed Molina between first and second base, several Reds players milled about on the field as if awaiting a replay review.I saw the Reds still on the field, but I didnt know what happened, so I came inside, and they were saying it was a ground-rule double, Molina said. I didnt know what happened at the moment.Reds left fielder Adam Duvall said the ball definitely hit the sign.I saw it. I heard it. Theres a gap in between the sign and the fence. I wasnt sure if it was in play or not, he said.Duvall retrieved the ball and made a relay home.Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, whose team trails the San Francisco Giants by one game for the final wild-card spot, acknowledged that the ground rules at Busch Stadium made that a dead ball.The Cardinals didnt stick around long to see if there would be a review.They celebrated on the field, and theres no reason to hang around, Matheny said.Carpenter was about halfway between second and third base when the ball hit the padded sign, so he would have been ordered back to third had umpires realized it was a dead ball.When the balls hit, Im running as hard as I can. I never looked or saw where it was, Carpenter said. Im picking up the third-base coach and got the wave, and thats a fun way to win a game. Wholesale Pistons Jerseys .

The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. .1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday, giving the beleaguered English Premier League champions a major lift. The summer is winding down, so we are getting closer to the college basketball season. I cannot wait for it to start, baby!One thing that always interests me before the start of a new season is the list of coaching changes. I know there can be a lack of job security in coaching, and at times a veteran coach will go for a change of scenery.This season, there are a number of coaching moves that have piqued my interest.Here are seven coaching changes to keep an eye on this season. Well see if these veterans can continue to have success at their new schools.Jamie Dixon, TCU Horned FrogsAfter serving 13 seasons as head coach at the University of Pittsburgh, Dixon decided to take over at his alma mater. Dixon returns home to TCU where he played for Jim Killingsworth and led the Horned Frogs to Southwest Conference titles as a junior and senior. Dixon is one of only eight coaches nationally to guide their program to 11 NCAA tournament appearances in the last 13 seasons. It will be a challenge to add to that streak in the competitive Big 12. Give him time and he will build a winner.Josh Pastner, Georgia Tech Yellow JacketsHe opted to leave Memphis, where he compiled a 167-73 record over seven seasons. The Tigers earned bids to the NCAA tournament four times during his tenure. Moving to the ACC is tough enough, but the Yellow Jackets lost several key players from last season. Rebuilding will not be easy, and Pastner has added a couple of transfers to help out. Fans must be patient as Pastner really knows and loves the game. He eats, drinks and sleeps basketball.Pastner made a good move bringing in former Portland coach Eric Reveno to join his staff.Jerod Haase, Stanford CardinalA former California Golden Bear as a player, Haase takes over for Johnny Dawkins. He comes to Palo Alto after completing his fourth season as the head coach at UAB, where he led the Blazers to a regular-season Conference USA championship in 2016 and the programs 15th all-time NCAA tournament appearance in 2015. Haase compiled an 80-53 overall record while improving the Blazers win total every year. Haase led the Blazers to a 26-7 overall record and a 16-2 confference mark last season. Cheap Pistons Jerseys Authentic. .Johnny Dawkins, UCF KnightsThe former Duke All-American wasnt out of work for long. Dawkins arrives in Orlando after an eight-year stint at Stanford, where he led the Cardinal to five postseason appearances, including a Sweet Sixteen appearance in 2014. Dawkins also guided the Cardinal to two NIT Championships during his tenure (2012, 2015). Stanford put together four 20-win seasons in Dawkins time as head coach. He is only the second coach in Stanford history with at least four 20-win seasons. Now he should make a difference in the American.Bryce Drew, Vanderbilt CommodoresHe replaces Kevin Stallings. Drew, a three-time Horizon League Coach of the Year, comes to the Commodores after a five-year stint at Valparaiso, where he averaged 25 wins per season. He won four regular season championships ?and made four postseason appearances, two in the NCAA Tournament and two in the NIT. In his five seasons at Valparaiso, Drew compiled a 124-49 overall record and in 2016, led the Crusaders to a 30-7 overall record, the most wins in program history, and a berth in the NIT title game. The cupboard is not bare as the Commodores have?Luke Kornet?among the veterans returning.Kevin Stallings, Pittsburgh PanthersGoing from the SEC to the ACC is not easy. After spending the previous 17 seasons at Vanderbilt. Stallings enters his 24th season as a head coach with an impressive 455-283 (.617) record overall. His passion and energy should help make the transition work at Pittsburgh, but filling Dixons shoes is a challenge too.Herb Sendek, Santa Clara BroncosHe sat out a season after being let go by Arizona State. Sendek has been a winner everywhere he has been, and he knows his Xs and Os. Heading into his 23rd season as a head coach, he has the advantage of getting to work with his team on a trip to Italy during the offseason. Sendek also has a roster with six players at 6-foot-9 or taller, which should help. It is never easy facing the likes of Gonzaga and Saint Marys in the WCC. ' ' '
