Texas recalled INF Joey Gallo and OF Jared Hoyin from sxx123's blog

RIO DE JANEIRO -- American Jordan Burroughs stunning loss in Fridays Olympic wrestling tournament re-opened the debate over the worlds best pound-for-pound freestyle competitor. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Cody-Whitehair-Jersey/ .The Russian Tank just might be next in line.Abdulrashid Sadulaev is 20 years old and a two-time world champion. He captured his first Olympic title Saturday at the Rio Games.Sadulaev rolled past Turkeys Selim Yasar 5-0 for his third consecutive world title and his third gold at the Rio Games.Sadulaev was as dominant as any wrestler had been in Rio yet, outscoring his opponents 28-1 in clinching his fifth straight world championship dating to his days in junior competitions.Of course (I think) Im the championship favorite, Sadulaev said. But this is the Olympics. Its full of surprises.Not for Sadulaev, who scored on a pair of two-point moves late in the first period in beating Yasar in the world final for the second year in a row.American JDen Cox, beaten by Yasar in a somewhat baffling loss in the semifinals, scored a takedown with six seconds left to win bronze and give the U.S. its first freestyle medal of these games.HEAVYWEIGHT: MEDAL ALERT: Turkish heavyweight Taha Akgul won the gold medal, beating Irans Komeil Ghasemi 3-1 Saturday to become just the third wrestler from Turkey to win Olympic gold in freestyle. Akgul has now won three consecutive world titles after finishing just ninth at the London Games. Akgul was nearly as impressive as Sadulaev was, notching two technical falls and an 8-1 to reach the finals.COX MAKES UP FOR MISCUE: Cox, a two-time NCAA champion at the University of Missouri, made a surprise run to the semifinals -- where confusion contributed to his defeat. Yasar scored first by successfully defending after Cox had been put on the shot clock for passivity. Cox tied the score at 1-all on a push out and didnt wrestle aggressively after that because he thought he held the tiebreaker as the last wrestler to score. But the edge actually went to Yasar because of rules designed to encourage action, and Cox lost a challenge and the match 2-1. I honestly didnt know I was losing, Cox said. Cox redeemed himself in his bronze-medal match, scoring to beat the shot clock against Cubas Reineris Salas Perez -- a move that was ruled scoreless on the mat but overturned on review. Sala Perez refused to return and was disqualified. I dont think it was as much about redemption as much as it was just something I had to do, Cox said.DLAGNEVS DAY: Like Cox, American heavyweight Tervel Dlagnev went further than many thought he would before being stopped a match before the gold-medal bout. Dlagnev is an experienced heavyweight who was fifth at the London Games, but back trouble that nearly ended his career the week of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials figured to limit his chances in Rio. Dlagnev won two matches, Ghasemi got him on four consecutive gut wrenches, all two-pointers, for a 10-0 win. Dlagnev also fell 10-0 in the bronze medal match, likely his last in international competition. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Hroniss-Grasu-Jersey/ . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Bryce-Callahan-Jersey/ . LOUIS -- St. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Pernell-Mcphee-Jersey/ . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. SEATTLE -- Elvis Andrus used his bat to offset a couple of defensive miscues.Andrus had a homer, three doubles and two errors, Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run homer and the Texas Rangers held off the slumping Seattle Mariners 10-7 on Tuesday night.Texas, which leads the AL West by 8 1/2 games, had a season-high seven doubles among its 15 hits and won for the eighth time in 10 games.Other than the first at-bat with the strikeout, a huge night for Elvis coming on a night where defensively, a couple mistakes, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. A really huge night with the homer, the doubles, the hit-and-run double, really he just continues to come up with huge hits for us in different situations.Martin Perez (10-10) allowed four runs -- two earned -- and seven hits in six innings to win for the third time in his last 13 starts. Sam Dyson pitched the ninth for his 32nd save.James Paxton (4-6) allowed six runs -- four earned -- and nine hits, throwing 103 pitches in 4 1/3 innings.The Rangers snapped a 4-4 tie with three runs in the fifth. Lucroy chased Paxton with his ninth homer since joining the Rangers -- he had 13 with Milwaukee prior to the Aug. 1 trade. Drew Storen relieved and gave up doubles to Andrus and pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland.I finally got a pitch up in the zone and barreled it up, Lucroy said. Ive been a little late on some heaters, a little ahead on some offspeed stuff. I finally got a pitch I could handle and didnt miss it.Andrus opened the seventh with his fifth home run off Arquimedes Caminero to make it 8-4. Seattle cut it to 8-6 in the bottom on a bases-loaded walk to Kyle Seager and Leonys Martins sacrifice fly.Andrus added an RBI double in the eighth. Seth Smith answered with a pinch-hit homer in the bottom half, his 12th, to make it 9-7. Lucroy drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth for the final run.I feel way worse for Martin, than actually for me with those two errors, Andrus said. Hes been battling a lot and today was throwing a great game, and it really gets me upset when stuff like that happens. But, I think it helped me, too, with my offense. It already happened, its in the past, so lets try to do somethiing offensively so I can help him. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Richard-Dent-Jersey/. Seattle, which was 10 games above .500 on Aug. 22, fell to 70-68 and 12 1/2 games behind the Rangers. The Mariners have lost 10 of 13.We could never just quite get out in front of it, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. I thought our offense did a really great job, getting after it and trying to create opportunities. We were one hit away a couple times from getting the lead, but we just couldnt do it.Seager pulled the Mariners even in the third with a two-run homer, his 26th, matching his career high set last season.Paxton struck out four in the first inning, with one of them costing him a run. Ian Desmond struck out, but reached on a wild pitch. Carlos Beltran singled him to third and Adrian Beltre punched an opposite-field dribbler into right for an RBI single.BELTRE KEEPS SCORINGAdrian Beltre doubled to open the fifth and scored ahead of Lucroys home run, giving him a Rangers record of 12 consecutive games with a run scored. It was Beltres 585th career double, tying Rafael Palmeiro for 19th on the career list.TRAINING ROOM:Rangers: RHP Tanner Scheppers was activated from the 60-day DL (left knee surgery). ...
