KANSAS CITY, Mo. Cheap Nike Shoes Store . -- Royals catcher Salvador Perez spent Monday evening celebrating the birth of his baby boy.It beat watching his team getting trounced by Oakland.Khris Davis and Marcus Semien hit three-run homers, the Athletics matched a season high with 17 hits while drawing 10 walks, and Oakland rolled to a 16-3 victory in their series opener.Not even Perez would have made a difference in this one.Kansas City starter Dillon Gee (6-8) was battered for five runs on five hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings, though he wasnt the only pitcher to melt down. He was followed by three relievers in a span of four batters in the fourth inning, when the As marched nine to the plate and scored three times.When youre out there trying to find something in a big league game against big league hitters, it makes it real tough, Gee said. They scored a lot of runs, but its just one game.Daniel Coulombe (3-1) earned the win in relief of Ross Detwiler, though it was the Oakland offense that led the way. The As scored their most runs this season for their largest margin of victory.These games are easy to turn the page, a lot tougher is losing a one-run game, Royals manager Ned Yost said. We just got beat. We didnt play good, we didnt pitch good and we got beat.It was a potentially crippling loss for Kansas City (74-69), which began the day four back of the final wild-card spot with 20 games remaining. The Royals were hoping an eight-game stand against lowly Oakland and the scuffling White Sox would allow them to make up some ground.There are still five teams they must leap in the wild-card race.Theres not much to say, Yost said. Its just one of those nights.By the end, everybody in the As starting lineup had a hit. Stephen Vogt was 3 for 3 with two walks and two RBI, while Joey Wendle, Arismendy Alcantara and Ryon Healy drove also drove in two apiece.We were swinging at a lot of good pitches, said the As Brett Eibner, who began the season with Kansas City. We swung at pitches we want to hit and when you do that, the runs seem to pile up.Davis delivered the first big blow in the third inning when he splashed his 36th homer into the fountains in left field, a shot estimated at 447 feet.When the Royals matched him with three runs in the bottom half, the As bounced right back to score three more: Bruce Maxwell and Eibner opened the fourth with back-to-back singles, Joey Wendle hit a sacrifice fly, and the As churned out four hits and two walks in taking a 6-3 lead.It was 8-3 when Semien went deep in the sixth, and Oakland merely piled on from there.Its great to have a game like that, As manager Bob Melvin said. For a team that struggles to score runs, its nice to have a positive mood in the dugout.BIG LEAGUE DEBUTSRoyals OF Hunter Dozier and As INF Renato Nunez and OF/INF Matt Olson made their major league debuts. Nunez and Olson were brought up from Triple-A Nashville prior to the game, with Olson taking the spot of departed DH Billy Butler on the 40-man roster.In Olsons case his parents were here, Melvin said, so it was nice to get him in the game.SALVYS BABY BOYPerez was scratched from the starting lineup a couple hours before first pitch after his fiance gave birth. His name is Johan Salvador and the Royals said mother and baby are doing well.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals RHP Kris Medlen (right rotator cuff inflammation) will not return this season, manager Ned Yost said. LHP Jason Vargas (Tommy John surgery) is also unlikely to pitch for Kansas City this season after making three rehab outings for Triple-A Omaha.UP NEXTRHP Jharel Cotton makes his second career start for the As after beating the Angels in his debut last week. LHP Danny Duffy goes for his eighth win since the All-Star break for Kansas City. Cheap Nike Shoes Outlet . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. Cheap Nike Shoes Wholesale . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. http://www.cheapnikeshoesonline.us/ . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. NEW YORK -- For the past 13 years, Alex Rodriguezs tenure with the New York Yankees has been the biggest reality show in baseball filled with home runs and numerous controversies.For the last month, speculation about the end of Rodriguezs tenure has been rampant.On Friday, it officially ends when Rodriguez and the Yankees face the Tampa Bay Rays in the opener of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium in front of a crowd that will include his mother and two daughters.Rodriguez will be making his last appearance for the Yankees in something many thought was inevitable once his presence from the regular lineup began getting phased out in late-June. The Yankees made it official Sunday when they announced Rodriguez would be released and join the team as an advisor in the 2017 season.The announcement was kept secret until minutes before Rodriguez began his own press conference where he grew emotional and expressed appreciation for managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner, who came up with the idea last week.Unlike the farewells to Derek Jeter in 2014 and Mariano Rivera the previous year, Rodriguezs career is concluding quietly, though he will be honored with a ceremony before the game.The celebrations of Jeter and Riveras careers are a stark contrast for Rodriguez.While he has 696 home runs, three MVPs and 14 trips to the All-Star game, Rodriguez also involved in two performance-enhancing drug scandals, including a record 162-game suspension in 2014 for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.Since returning from the ban last year, Rodriguez has steered clear of controversy and few teammates had difficulties finding positive things say to about the 41-year-old Sunday.Hopefully Friday will be a great day for Alex, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said. Were going to support him every step of the way and were going to miss him and thats from the bottom of our hearts. Were going to miss Alex in this clubhouse.His IQ is off the charts, his baseball IQ is very high and he knows so much about the game, catcher Brian McCann said. From the pitching side to the hitting side, too. Picking up little things. Its incredible his attention to detail.Despite the praise from teammates Rodriguez is going out quietly because of his struggles at the plate. He is batting .199 after going 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout in Thursdays 4-2 win at Boston, which gave New York a 58-56 record and put the Yankees within 3 1/2 games of the second wild card spot.Rodriguez had a .223 average when the Yankees began phasing him out and has started 13 of New Yorks 41 games since June 25. Since June 25, Rodriguez has seven hits in his last 55 at-bats and when his occasional start resulted in unproductive at-bats it gradually led to rookie Gary Sanchez becoming part of the designated hitter mix. Cheap Nike Shoes China Free Shipping. One thing Rodriguez will not be doing Friday is playing third base. He asked manager Joe Girardi about playing third base but had the request turned down.It was a fun request, and I dont have any problem with Joe saying no on that, Rodriguez said. I wouldnt make a big deal out of it. Thats not fair to anyone. It was just a fun request. Hes probably saving me some embarrassment, so thats not a bad thing.Still Girardi will find a way to give fans time to cheer Rodriguez.Theres a way that youd like to see him go out where the fans can show him the appreciation, Girardi said. And then I will try to accommodate that the best I can.When Rodriguezs time with the Yankees is done, only three members of the 2009 championship team will remain.One of them will be on the mound when CC Sabathia takes the mound. Sabathia has struggled recently by going 1/3 with a 5.40 ERA in his last five starts and also has struggled at home, going 1-6 with a 4.82 ERA in nine starts.Sabathia last pitched Saturday against Cleveland when he allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 5-2 loss.The Rays have been no stranger to notable events in recent Yankees history and are embracing their role in Rodriguezs final game with New York.Hes played for as long as I can remember, Rays first baseman Brad Miller told MLB.com Wednesday. Its history Friday when were there.David Price gave up Jeters 3000th hit in 2011 and Mariano Riveras storied career ended with an appearance against Tampa Bay.Tampa Bay also was the opponent when the Yankees unveiled the plaque to late owner George Steinbrenner in 2010 and when the Yankees played their first home game following the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.Chris Archer was on Tampa Bay when Riveras career ended and the right-hander will be the final starting pitcher Rodriguez faces. Rodriguez is 2-for-15 off Archer and both hits are home runs.Hes already got two off me, Archer told MLB.com. Those are the two I hope he has. Im on his list. Im in his book twice.Tampa Bay has won five of nine meetings with the Yankees, including a three-game sweep at home two weeks ago which. Those wins by Tampa Bay resulted in New York officially becoming sellers at the non-waiver trade deadline.Since sweeping the Yankees, the Rays have dropped six of 10, including a 7-0 loss at Toronto on Wednesday. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
