If he comes to the NBA

PHOENIX - Revenge was a fleeting thing for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Aaron Colvin Jersey . The Milwaukee Brewers got their payback the very next pitch. Jonathan Lucroy homered twice, including a grand slam in an eventful seventh inning, and the Brewers made it two in a row over Arizona by beating the Diamondbacks 7-5 on Tuesday night. Lucroys slam to centre came on Brad Zieglers first delivery after Arizona reliever Evan Marshall was ejected for hitting Ryan Braun with a pitch. "They won the tough-guy points, but I dont know what the stats are for those," Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse said. "We won the game because of that." Brewers manager Ron Roenicke called Lucroys at-bat "probably the best Ive ever seen." "After they smoke our guy, they bring in their closer, the first pitch he sees he hits a grand slam. Theres no way an at-bat can get bigger than that," he said. It was the first grand slam and only the 16th home run allowed by Ziegler, who is not usually the Arizona closer. The Brewers couldnt understand why the Diamondbacks picked that moment to hit Braun. "We know the way the game works," Braun said. "I was surprised I got hit in that situation, those circumstances — go-ahead run at second base, tying run at third." Lucroy insisted the Diamondbacks drilling Braun did not provide added motivation. "Im not about revenge or payback," the catcher said. "Im just about winning the game. It worked out for us." Marshall (2-2) took the loss, facing three batters without getting an out after relieving starter Mike Bolsinger, who was called up from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day. Lucroy had a solo homer in the sixth. Aramis Ramirez also hit a solo shot for the Brewers. Lohse (8-2), who had hit three batters all season, plunked two in his six innings. He grazed Didi Gregorius to start the game, then hit Chris Owings just below the back of his head to start the sixth. Lohse also threw one over Bolsingers head, and the Brewers hit a batter in Monday nights win as well. All that apparently led to Marshall retaliating. "I am not going to comment on that," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "You have been around the game long enough." With a slight smile on his face, Marshall said he didnt hit Braun on purpose. Lohse allowed four runs, three earned, and six hits. The Brewers trailed 4-2 when he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in a five-run seventh. Arizonas Roger Kieschnick hit his first career homer, off Francisco Rodriguez to start the ninth. The ball landed in the swimming pool beyond the right-field fence. Singles by pinch-hitter Cody Ross and Gerardo Parra put runners at first and second with one out, but Rodriguez struck out Paul Goldschmidt. Miguel Montero bounced out to first to end it, and Rodriguez earned his major league-leading 22nd save. With the Brewers trailing 4-2, Jean Segura led off the seventh with his second triple of the night, off the wall in centre, and scored on Elian Herreras sacrifice fly. That ended the night for Bolsinger, who had a 4-2 lead when he left. He wound up allowing three runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and no walks in 6 1-3 innings. Marshall came in and gave up a pinch-hit single to Lyle Overbay, then a double by Scooter Gennett to put runners on second and third. That brought up Braun. Marshalls first pitch went behind the batter, leading plate umpire Ted Barrett to walk to the mound for a nose-to-nose conversation with the Arizona pitcher. The very next pitch, Marshall plunked Braun just above the left hip to load the bases. "Thats ridiculous," Lucroy said. "Its overreacting." Barrett immediately tossed Marshall, who got high-fives from his teammates in the Diamondbacks dugout. But with the bases loaded, Lucroy homered to left-centre, above the 413-foot sign, and Milwaukee led 7-4. Gibson has been outspoken since Brauns 65-game suspension last year for violating baseballs drug agreement during the 2011 season, which included the sluggers big series when the Brewers edged the Diamondbacks in the NL playoffs. Asked if he thought that figured in Marshalls pitch, Braun said: "Youd have to ask him (Gibson). I wish him the best, hope he finds peace and happiness in his life." NOTES: It was the second ejection for the Diamondbacks in two nights. Gibson was tossed in the ninth inning Monday. ... A victory would have lifted Arizona out of last place in the NL West. ... To make room for Bolsinger, the Diamondbacks optioned reliever Will Harris to Triple-A Reno. ... Brewers CF Carlos Gomez sat out his second consecutive game with a sore hamstring. ... In the third game of the four-game series Wednesday night, the Brewers send Matt Garza (4-4, 4.17 ERA) to the mound against Wade Miley (3-6, 4.71). Jordan Akins Texans Jersey .com) - Mike Miller scored a season-high 21 points in a rare start and the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back from their worst loss of the season with a 95-91 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Ibraheim Campbell Jersey . The 19-year-old from Westmount, Que., was edged 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-3 by third-seeded Alize Cornet of France. Cornet broke Bouchard twice in the last set and saved six break points in the three-hour match.TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on the agressiveness of Paul George, the struggles of LeBron James in Game 5, the prospects of Billy Donovan as an NBA head coach, the swagger of Cory Joseph and the maturation of Russell Westbrook. 1. Paul George (Pacers): Brilliant fourth quarter Wednesday night as he saved his team from elimination. Unfortunately, we havent see that from him enough in the playoffs and surely in the second half of the regular season. He let it rip in Game 5 and loved his aggressiveness and the attack mode that he took. When he plays like an elite player, it settles the rest of the roster down and guys are able to play their games. Still dont like their chances though; their bench has been a huge bust and though the defence was a bit better Wednesday, it hasnt been up to par in this series. I like Miami to close in Game 6 at home. 2. LeBron James (Heat): Played less than 25 minutes due to foul trouble! How often do you ever hear or see that? An aberration to say the least. Obviously, that helped the Pacers immensely. I tend to doubt youll be hearing that phrase too often the rest of the playoffs for Mr. James. When its time for the spotlight to shine brightest, hell be out there. 3. Billy Donovan (University of Florida): Where there is smoke, there is fire. Keep hearing his name when you talk about NBA jobs. Hes a terrific head coach and has done a wonderful job with the Gators. Already took the Orlando Magic job and then backed out years ago when Stan Van Gundy ended up taking it. Worked out great for both guys. Talking to a number of college coaches of late, many of them are getting tired of the one and done mentality that many players have and the concept of the free agent mentality that many players have today regarding transferring oout each offseason. Custom Texans Jerseys. . I know, I get it, its a two-way street for both sides yet I think when  you coach at the highest level in top-notch leagues and have constant movement each year, you say to yourself, might as well get to where everyones trying to get to and not have to deal with recruiting and academics and the goofy NCAA rules and deal totally with why you do it in the first place: basketball - the game - and not the other nonsense. Like many college coaches, Im sure Donovan has had those thoughts. If he comes to the NBA, I have no doubt hed be good. 4. Cory Joseph (Spurs): Loved the swagger he played with in Game 4. Came in and looked like he belonged. Love the dunk on Serge Ibaka; posterized him! Hes a passionate competitor and you cant discount that playing in San Antonio has greatly helped his development as a young player. Hes had nice stints of play at times this year and with a guy like Patty Mills in front of him behind Tony Parker, minutes are tough to come by. When youre called upon, be ready. He has shown me that when that happens, hes ready to get after it. Good for him. 5. Russell Westbrook (Thunder): What a Game 4 performance with 40 points, 10 assists, five rebounds and five steals. When you look around the NBA right now, there arent many more talented guys than this guy out there. Yes, at times, he can drive you crazy with his self-absorbed play but you cant discount his ability. Hopefully, the consistent maturity and professional/team-oriented approach becomes a part of his daily persona. I see a young guy that is maturing and still figuring it out; a guy you definitely stick with because there is so much there and he really wants to win. Just still learning how to go about it the right way, but its coming.  Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Hoodies Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Throwback Jerseys ' ' '
