n him grow so much over the past five years, offensive lineman Michael Du from LHX1990's blog

WASHINGTON -- Besieged by starting pitching injuries, the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking for solid outings from the starters they have left. Cheap Jordan 12 Gym Red .Bud Norris gave them a maddeningly inconsistent one Wednesday night in an 8-1 loss to the Washington Nationals. Norris (5-8) struck out eight but allowed six earned runs on seven hits, including three home runs, before getting pulled in the sixth inning.Five innings, got some strikeouts, but its tough to win (when) they hit the ball out of the ballpark, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Norris got the start after South Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu was put on the disabled list with elbow tendinitis. The Dodgers are also without three-time NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw because of a herniated disk in his back and wont have lefty Alex Wood for eight weeks after he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his elbow.Unlike many of the Dodgers other pitchers, Norris is healthy, but he was still victimized on home runs by Bryce Harper, Ben Revere and Jayson Werth. Harpers two-run home run was a 451-foot moonshot into the third deck in right field at Nationals Park in the first inning.Harper put a good swing on the ball in the first inning, Norris said as the understatement of the night. Roberts said Norris threw the 3-1 fastball into Harpers nitro zone.With the Dodgers scoring only one run on a single by call-up Charlie Culberson in the second off the Nationals Gio Gonzalez (6-8), Norris didnt have much margin for error. He did strike out Harper and NL batting leader Daniel Murphy before an RBI double by Wilson Ramos ended his night.But it was back-to-back homers by Revere and Werth in the fifth that Roberts said did the Dodgers in.Unfortunately in that fifth inning I thought I made a pitch that could have been really close, Norris said. I guess I had a mental lapse there.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Roberts said surgery was more of a possibility for Kershaw after a setback with the herniated disk in his back. ... Roberts said All-Star SS Corey Seager could be back in the lineup Thursday after missing two games with a stomach virus. ... RHP Chris Hatcher was placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury.KENDRICK KEEPS IT ALIVEWith his double in the eighth, Dodgers LF Howie Kendrick extended his hitting streak to 12 games. A fly out left him stranded.CALL HIM TREY TURNERNationals 2B Trea Turner made it back-to-back games with triples when he hit one into the left-field corner in the sixth inning. He then stole home on a botched pickoff attempt, the Nationals first steal of home since Harper in 2012.UP NEXTLHP Julio Urias (1-2, 4.95 ERA) is the next man up for the Dodgers, and hell face Nationals RHP Stephen Strasburg (13-0, 2.51 ERA). Air Jordan 4 Wholesale . The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. Wholesale Authentic Jordans . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. http://www.wholesalejordan12.com/ . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Perry Hills leads the Big Ten in completion percentage and has proven to be invaluable for Maryland as a passer, rusher and senior leader.All of those positives are wasted on Hills, who cant help lamenting the injuries that prevented him from thoroughly enjoying his final season with the Terrapins.Hills has missed two games and was knocked out of two others. Thats his takeaway from a season in which he has thrown 10 touchdown passes and carried Maryland (5-6, 2-6) to the brink of bowl eligibility.Its been pretty rewarding, Hills said Tuesday, but the frustration sets in because you keep saying, `What if? What if?Coming off a season in which he threw 13 interceptions compared to eight TD passes, Hills won the starting job over the summer for first-year coach DJ Durkin. The Terrapins got off to a 4-0 start before Hills hurt his right shoulder in the first half at Penn State.Maryland lost that game, then fell at home to Minnesota with an injured Hills watching from the sideline.Hills returned to beat Michigan State, but two weeks later was injured at Michigan. He started the following week against Ohio State but left in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury.I went in the locker room and said, `Man, God must not want me to play. Im already going through one bad shoulder and hes going to go out and try and give me another, Hills said. It was definitely heart-wrenching. Its like, anything that can go wrong has gone wrong. What on earth?Hills could not recover to face Nebraska last week , and his status for Saturdays home game against Rutgers (2-9, 0-8) is uncertain.I look for Perry to continue to improve this week, get him back healthy and hopefully go out there and help our senior class go get a win, Durkin said.All five of Marylands victories this season have come with Hills in the starting lineup, whicch says as much about his effectiveness as his 66. Discount Jordan 4 Bred . 7 percent completion percentage.As goes Hills, so go the Terps. Three other quarterbacks have stepped in during his absence, combining for three TD passes, five interceptions and nary a victory.If Hills had stayed healthy, who knows? Maryland probably would have already sewn up a bowl berth and Hills could look back on his final college season with no remorse.Hes certainly fought through a lot of things, Durkin said. You wish he was healthier throughout the whole year. His year would be way more reflective of the type of player and young man he is. In many ways our team and our season would have reflected that, too.Funny thing is, with the exception of a torn ACL as a freshman, Hills has been impervious to injury at Maryland -- until this year.Its definitely been frustrating, he said. Last year I took a lot more hits and didnt really get injured.On a day Maryland bids farewell to its seniors and seeks to earn a bowl berth, his teammates want Hills in the huddle.I came in with Perry and Ive seen him grow so much over the past five years, offensive lineman Michael Dunn said. Hes been through a lot over that time. To have the opportunity to finish his career off with a win over Rutgers and go to a bowl game, that would be a special moment.Hills heads toward the weekend uncertain exactly when his career will end -- or if hes already taken his last snap in a game situation.Nothings given, he said. So you just have to go out and enjoy every second that you get in practice and workouts. Even though it can be really hard sometimes, Im going to really miss it.---More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25. ' ' '
