ST. Kevin De Bruyne Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Nick Franklin was hit in the head on deck by a teammates bat, but drew a walk and scored in the first inning before leaving the game with a head bruise against the San Diego Padres.Franklin passed a concussion protocol test.I feel great ... really like nothing happened, Franklin said. Right when it first happened, it was shocking and thats what kind of caught me off-guard. I felt a little bit dazed. I just felt tired, woozy. I never really lost concentration, focus, remembering things.Kevin Kiermaier smacked the back of Franklins head with a bat when Franklin bent to grab pine tar in the on-deck circle prior to leading off the first inning in Wednesdays game. Kiermaier was stretching a few feet in front of Franklin, swinging the bat over his head with one arm. Franklin was wearing a helmet.I was just doing a little warm-up routine I always do, weight on my bat, swinging it, Kiermaier said. Nick went to get some pine tar and I was already doing it, and I dont think he saw me. I smoked his helmet. I felt terrible. Kind of a freak accident.Partially it was my fault, Franklin added. I saw him there, and I thought I was out of the way and next thing you know I got whacked.Franklins head and vision were checked by Rays athletic trainer Ron Porterfield. Franklin scored on Brad Millers two-run homer, but was taken out after the inning. Manchester City Jersey 2017/18 . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. Raheem Sterling Jersey . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks. Last weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 my #TeamLynch got the best of #TeamJC by a score of 9-6.

PITTSBURGH -- A year ago, James Conner spent the days before Thanksgiving wondering what was wrong with him. The answer came in the form of a cancer diagnosis that sent the Pittsburgh running back through months of debilitating treatment that threatened his blossoming career.Its all behind him now. All of it. And that -- more than the records hes breaking at an alarming rate -- is what matters. Its why Conner didnt get wrapped up in his own hype after his pair of touchdowns in Pitts easy 56-14 romp over Duke on Saturday made him the leading career touchdown scorer in Atlantic Coast Conference history.When I take the field, I put cancer and everything behind me and just play, said Conner, who left briefly after tweaking his right ankle in the second quarter but returned for the second half. Im getting better every week.So are the Panthers (7-4, 4-3 ACC), who showed no signs of a letdown after stunning Clemson last week. Conner, as is his wont, led the way. He bulled over from 1 yard in the first quarter and again in the third to give him 50 rushing touchdowns for his career, breaking the previous mark set by N.C. States Ted Brown between 1975 and 1978. Conner now has 53 touchdowns in all, eclipsing the old ACC mark of 52 set by Wali Lundy of Virginia from 2002-05.Asked if any of them stand out over the others and Conner pointed to his 20-yard sprint in the fourth quarter against the Tigers, the one that put Pitt in position to pull off one of the biggest upsets in the programs recent history.Everything Ive been through and me working on getting in a rhythm, my endurance playing 60 minutes of football, Conner said, it showed I can play 60 minutes of football at a high level, late in the game, Conner said.For once such theatrics werent necessary for Pitt. Not with Conner running for 101 yards. Not with Quadree Henderson returning a punt 65 yards for a score and adding another on a 52-yard jet sweep. Not with Nate Peterman throwing for three scores in the wind at wintry Heinz Field as the Panthers set a new school record with 432 points on the season.It was a good, comfortable win, Conner said. Weve got to finish out the season strong.A DUD FOR THE BLUE DEVILSDaniel Jones completeed 28 of 46 for 248 yards and a touchdown but Duke (4-7, 1-6) did little downfield against the nations 127th-ranked pass defense. Raheem Sterling Shirt. . The Panthers sacked Jones five times, including two by senior defensive end Ejuan Price. After going over 200 yards on the ground in each of their last three games, the Blue Devils managed just 25 yards rushing against Pitt.They won the execution battle and thats why the score is so lopsided, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. We also lost the kicking game. It wasnt our intention coming in, but we just got whipped.RESPECTHendersons zig-zag punt return in the third quarter put the Panthers up 42-14 and marked his fourth kick return for a score this year, tops in the nation. The Blue Devils found one way to keep it from Henderson, having Jones do a quick kick on a fourth-down later in the third quarter.I was sitting off to the sideline, waiting for (the snap) and he just kicked, Henderson said with a laugh. Definitely a sign of respect. I appreciate it.THE TAKEAWAYDuke: The only chance the Blue Devils have of making a fifth straight bowl game will be with a win at Miami next week and hope there arent enough 6-6 teams to fill the bowl slots.Pitt: While the defense is hardly stout, the Panthers have become opportunistic of late. An early fumble recovery by linebacker Matt Galambos on Dukes first play set up a touchdown and helped the Panthers set the tone. Pitt later turned a fumbled Duke kickoff return into another score.UP NEXTDuke: travels to Miami in the regular season finale. The Hurricanes stunned the Blue Devils 30-27 last season, winning on the final play during a 75-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that featured eight laterals. The ACC ended suspending officials for two games following a series of officiating errors during the return.Pitt: will try to continue its mastery of Syracuse. The Panthers have won 10 of their last 11 against the Orange, including all three meetings since the schools joined the ACC in 2013.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .
