New Zealand women 162 for 3 (Bates 66, Devine 54) beat Pakistan women 158 (Zafar 52, Huddleston 4-20) by seven wicketsScorecard New Zealand womens bowling prowess came to the fore with right-arm medium pacer Holly Huddleston taking 4 for 20 before half-centuries from Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine studded their seven-wicket win over Pakistan Women in the fourth ODI in Nelson. Discount Air Jordan 1 Retro .That meant New Zealand extended their dominance in the series to go 4-0 up with one match remaining, and more importantly, become the third team after Australia and England to seal a spot in next years Womens World Cup, leaving just one direct entry to be filled up.Pakistan, asked to make first use of a new surface at the Saxton Oval, stuttered to 158 in 48.1 overs, before New Zealand chased the total down with 165 balls remaining, having struck at well over seven an over.Bates dedicated the performance to victims of the earthquake that shook New Zealand on Monday. The match was preceded by a minutes silence and players of both teams wore black armbands. We wanted to pay our respects after a challenging and tragic week for New Zealand, she said. Its been a tough week for some of the players who are based in Christchurch too, along with everyone else, and we wanted to go out and play some cricket to take our minds off that and honour those people who are really struggling at the moment.Early signs did not point to such a one-sided contest, however, as Pakistan had got themselves into a strong position, scoring 107 in the 28th over for the loss of just Nahida Khan for 16 in the 13th over. But Ayesha Zafars dismissal, caught and bowled off Amy Satterthwaites right-arm medium pace, for 52 - her maiden ODI fifty - triggered a collapse with Pakistan losing their last nine wickets for 51 runs.Satterthwaite dismissed Bismah Maroof for a first-ball duck, but Javeira Khan denied her the hat-trick. Captain Sana Mir tried to keep the fight going with 31, but ran out of partners rapidly, and was the last batsman dismissed. Huddleston finished with 4 for 20 in 7.1 overs. Lea Tahuhu and Satterthwaite took two wickets each and were both economical, while Bates and Ameila Kerr took one each.New Zealand got off to a flier with Bates and Rachel Priest putting on 38 in 3.4 overs. Bates flayed Sadia Yousuf for five consecutive fours in the second over of the chase. Although Mir dismissed Priest with her fourth ball, it hardly slowed New Zealand down. Bates kept the carnage going in the company of Devine, promoted to No. 3, adding 94 in 14 overs.Bates biffed 66 off 52 balls and Devine struck 54 at just over a run a ball. Bates fell in the 18th over and Devine became Javeira Khans only victim less than three overs later, but with New Zealand needing just 17 and almost 30 full overs to play, it was too little too late for Pakistan. Air Jordan 1 Retro 2019 . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Cheap Air Jordan 1 Retro . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. Tuesdays slate is interesting in that a lot of the most usable pitchers are squaring off against one another which could make wrangling the ever-elusive win more difficult. Offensively, we have a game in Coors with two pitchers who arent shy about allowing runs.PitchingEliteThe only pitcher with a better second half ERA than Jon Lester (1.47) is his teammate Kyle Hendricks (1.46). Lesters last six starts are especially impressive: 0.63 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, 40 strikeouts, and a 4.4 K:BB ratio in 42.7 innings (5-0 record, too). He hasnt faced the Reds since June, but they havent been a problem for him this year with Game Scores of 72, 66, and 53. In his two seasons with the Cubs, he has a 3.02 ERA and 0.86 WHIP against Cincy in 47.7 innings.Jose Fernandez facing Tanner Roark is our first head-to-head of guys where you could pick either side, though the strikeout advantage for Fernandez certainly makes him more desirable (further evidenced by his elite Game Score projection). Fernandez has fanned fewer than six batters just four times this year and two of them have come this month, but he tied his season-high of 14 in the other start hes made this month so Im not too worried. Plus, he has 29 strikeouts in 19 innings against the Nats this year in three starts (1.42 ERA, 1.00 WHIP for those curious).Roark has been every bit as good as his 2014 breakout and you could make the case that hes even a little better from a fantasy angle because he has added a full strikeout to his bottom line (7.3 K/9). Both Fernandez and Roark have 16 starts of a 60 or better Game Score this year. Fernandez has at least six strikeouts in each one with seven of at least 11 strikeouts while Roark has gone 6+ just eight times including his only double-digit strikeout outing of the season (15 v. MIN).Rich Hill versus Johnny Cueto is an equally awesome matchup that should be a lot of fun to watch and could be a playoff preview. For the purposes of DFS, Hill is a worse version of Fernandez while Cueto is a better Roark. Hill was great with Oakland, but hes been on another level with LA, albeit for just four starts. He has a 1.48 ERA and 0.53 (!) WHIP in 24.3 innings with 28 strikeouts and just three walks. In fact, he hasnt allowed a run as a Dodger until his most recent outing in Arizona when they put four on him. He still fanned eight despite just 5.3 innings.What Cueto lacks in dominant strikeout ability (7.9 K/9), he makes up for with endurance. He trails only Chris Sale (6) in complete games with five and his two shutouts are tied with Corey Kluber for second-most behind Clayton Kershaw. Cueto is averaging 6.9 innings per start, again trailing only Sale (7.3). Its an interesting contrast with Hill, whose lingering blister issue can end his night preemptively at any point. There are five starts with at least 14 outings of a 65+ Game Score this year and three of them are going on Tuesday: Lester 17, Cueto 15, and Fernandez 14. Max Scherzer is pacing the league with 20. And just as a fun little sidenote, Cueto is tied with -- yep, you guessed it -- Chris Sale.SolidJ.A. Happ and Hisashi Iwakuma square off in the Solid-if-Unspectacular Bowl. Happ went through a period of dominance earlier this summer when he ripped off eight starts of a 1.78 ERA with 64 strikeouts in 50.7 innings, but his return to earth (4.50 ERA, 19 Ks in last 26 IP) puts him essentially on par with the always-steady Iwakuma. Happ in his last nine starts has a 3.27 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 3.3 K:BB ratio over 52.3 innings while Iwakuma has a 3.07 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a 3.6 K:BB ratio over 55.7 innings.Kevin Gausman is definitely a risk going up against the Red Sox. On the one hand, they pasted him for 11 runs in nine innings over his first two starts against them earlier this year. On the other, he just popped eight shutout innings on em his last time out, pushing his ERA down to 2.06 over his last nine starts with 62 strikeouts in 56.7 innings. Gausman has been a boom or bust pick all year, not just against the Red Sox: he has six starts with a 70+ Game Score, but five others of 40 or lower (including a season-worst 22 against these Red Sox back in June). There are enough viable options to avoid this risk, but if youre a multi-lineup person looking to go against the grain with one of them, Gausmans your huckleberry.Spot StartersJulio Teheran and Robert Gsellman are both viable SP2 options when they go head-to-head in New York. Teheran is coming off a 5 ER dud against Miami, but as I reegularly point out in this space each week, not all bad starts are created equally. Air Jordan 1 Retro 2018. Teheran was cruising through five (1 ER, 3 H, 5 K, 1 BB) when it came unglued in the sixth: 3B, 1B, HBP, deep flyball out, 3-run HR, fin. Just because it came in one awful sequence doesnt mean we dont count it, but its a lot different than allowing runs in three of the five-plus innings while dodging traffic of 10 or so base runners. Teheran has not only done his best work on the road this year, but he has also crushed the Mets with a nearly-invisible 0.78 ERA and 0.52 WHIP in 23 innings (8.5 K:BB).Gsellman has only been in the majors for five minutes, but he has continued the seemingly endless stream of quality starters the Mets have to combat their seemingly endless stream of injuries to the more heralded arms. The Braves have actually handed him his worst start so far (5 IP/4 ER), but he also logged a season-high six strikeouts. The Braves have been markedly better in the second half offensively, but I still dont run from them with starters.Sean Manaea has quietly put up a 2.74 ERA in his last 65.7 innings dating back to July 10 when he put up seven scoreless against the Astros, who he faces on Tuesday. Hes allowed more than 3 ER in just two of the 11 appearances (theres one relief appearance, but he went 5 IP so it was essentially a start).I see the gaudy projected Game Score for Michael Pineda, but I remain entirely suspect. Hes got a sharp 2.84 ERA in three starts this month, but the wet blanket on that is his 12.7 innings as he hasnt finished five in any of the three starts. Me personally, I cant start him.HittingCardinals will be in high demand against Jorge de la Rosa for sure. For his career he has a 146-point platoon split favoring righties, but this year its been just five points thanks to a full season career-worst .842 OPS against lefties. That said, there are enough righties on St. Louis to avoid risking the lefty-lefty matchups. Stephen Piscotty is my top pick here, but Im also looking at Randal Grichuk, Jedd Gyorko, and Aledmys Diaz. If I were to pick a lefty, itd be Matt Carpenter.Adam Wainwright has seen his season ebb and flow. He opened with a 6.80 ERA in his first eight starts, then had a 2.84 in his next 14 as it looked like he was back before suffering through a 5.64 in his last eight. He has a brutal 6.15 ERA on the road and a trip to Coors isnt going to help that. He hasnt had a platoon split this year, making all of the stud Rockies viable for Tuesday: Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon, Nolan Arenado, David Dahl, and DJ LeMahieu top my list.It looks like Josh Smith will start for Cincinnati against the Cubs. He has a sharp 214-point platoon split favoring lefties and his horrific 1.8 HR/9 has been equal opportunity. Anthony Rizzo is obviously the top pick, but Id also consider switch-hitters Dexter Fowler and Ben Zobrist even on their weaker side. Kris Bryant hasnt had any issues with righties this year, posting a .919 OPS with 24 of his 37 homers.The James Shields-Jake Thompson matchup could be a fruitful alternative to a Coors stack while still allowing for some premium pitching as neither team is loaded with costly stars. Shields is making everyone look like an All-Star this year while the rookie Thompson is getting pummeled by lefties. Im looking at Odubel Herrera, Tommy Joseph, Cameron Rupp, Maikel Franco, and even Freddy Galvis on the Phillies. Galvis somehow has 20 homers this year, 17 against righties. Jose Abreu has a 1.038 OPS over the last month and 16 of his 24 homers against righties. Adam Eaton and Todd Frazier are the other big considerations for Chicago.Angels lefties draw the only other 10 rating aside from Cardinals righties, but theres no real way to maximize that as Kole Calhoun is the only usable bat from that side against A.J. Griffin.Most likely to go yard: Gary Sanchez. Im going a little unorthodox here. Hes facing a lefty and he only has a .752 OPS against them this year, but Im calling a homer against a reliever for the rookie backstop.Most likely to swipe a bag: Jean Segura. Arizona is one of four teams with a 10 rating in stolen bases on Tuesday so Ill take their team leader in that category (30) with the added bonus of maybe getting some big offense out of him, too. Segura is having a career year with 17 HRs and an .855 OPS in 642 PA. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey JerseysChina Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
