ANAHEIM, Calif. Air Jordans For Sale NZ . -- Jered Weaver wasnt sure what to say. These days with the Los Angeles Angels, nobody really is.Weaver had just been pounded, giving up a career-high four home runs to the New York Yankees in a 7-0 loss Friday night. Its something that is becoming all too familiar to the Angels and Weaver.It was his 315th career start for the Angels, second in franchise history to Chuck Finleys 379, but few have gone the way so many are now for the soft-tossing Weaver (8-11). He has failed to win in his last six starts and Friday made the struggle all the more apparent.I couldnt keep the ball in the yard, Weaver said softly. I didnt fool too many people tonight.The Angels fell 20 games under .500 (51-71) with the loss. They have lost 13 of their last 15 games, the season collapsing upon them.Nothing hurts worse than letting your teammates down and Ive been doing that on a pretty consistent basis, Weaver said. Its definitely a tough pill to swallow.The Angels offense offered no support against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, who is very much going in the opposite direction of Weaver.Tanaka (10-4) allowed only five hits in his 7 2/3 innings. He struck out nine and did not walk a batter. He hasnt walked a batter in his last four starts (123 hitters).We faced him before, but tonight he was a little crisper and had his pitches working, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. He pitched ahead in the count and threw a good game for them.The Yankees have won 10 of Tanakas last 12 starts, and his last three straight.New York gave him an immediate lead when Jacoby Ellsbury led off the game with a home run. It was the Yankees first leadoff home run this season.They added solo home runs by Ronald Torreyes, Didi Grregorius and Brian McCann in the fifth inning to chase Weaver.Torreyes, who batted ninth and entered the game hitting .218, had a career-high four hits, including his first career home run.Weaver has had particular trouble with the Yankees. He has a career 6.24 ERA against them -- his highest against any American League team.And little was working for him Friday. He allowed five runs and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings.At times he made some really good pitches, but he was having some trouble getting pitches where he wanted to and those guys didnt miss them, Scioscia said. So well just turn the page on that.ESCOBAR LEAVES GAMEAngels 3B Yunel Escobar was attempting to bunt his way on in the fourth inning when the ball went directly off his bat and hit him in the face. He quickly left the game. Scioscia said Escobar, who is hitting .320, was hit in the nose and cheek.Were going to take it one step at a time, but (the DL) is a possibility, Scioscia said.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: 3B Chase Headley (sore Achilles) was held out, but is expected to return to the lineup Saturday. ... OF Brett Gardner was out with a sore foot. ... The Yankees said RHP Nathan Eovaldi underwent successful Tommy John surgery, in addition to repairing his right flexor tendon.Angels: 1B C.J. Crow (broken bone in left hand) has rejoined the team after his rehab stint at Triple-A Salt Lake City and is expected to be activated Saturday.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Luis Cessa (2-0) is scheduled to make his first major league start. In eight games as a reliever this season, the 24-year-old has a 5.30 ERA.Angels: RHP Ricky Nolasco (4-10) will be looking for his first victory with the Angels in his fourth start. He is 0-2 with a 5.19 ERA in his first three starts. Air Jordan Basketball Shoes NZ . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. Air Jordan Shoes NZ . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday. Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum. No. 1 Duke | No. 3 Kentucky | Full listNo. 2: KANSAS JAYHAWKSLast season: 33-5, 15-3 Big 12The Jayhawks lost a ton of players from last seasons team but should be better this season. It starts with the veteran backcourt of Frank Mason III and Devonte Graham?and continues with tough, physical freshman wing Josh Jackson. Carlton Bragg should slide into Perry Ellis spot, and Landen Lucas is solid up front. Theres also no shortage of quality depth in Lawrence. One concern, though, might be perimeter shooting, where Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk is the teams top perimeter threat. -- Jeff GoodmanBest case: Big 12 Champs, Final Four, National Championship. This will not be a traditional Jayhawks team, one that beats you in the post. Kansas lost quite a bit up front but returns a stellar backcourt -- arguably the best in the country -- and some experience up front. Frank Mason and Devonte Graham are both very good point guards, and freshman Josh Jackson brings a skill set that few have had in Lawrence under Bill Self. Air Jordan Retro NZ. Kansas will win its 13th straight Big 12 title, an unimaginable achievement in todays game, and Kansas has proven to be an Elite Eight regular. This team can bust through.Worst case: Second-weekend casualty. What can hold Kansas back is lack of production and consistency from its big guys. Landen Lucas is really solid but not a scorer. Carlton Bragg is capable but hasnt done it yet. How the Jayhawks big guys play is key, as is the playmaking of Jackson. If Jackson is prepared to take the spotlight, Kansas worst case is better than most teams best case.No. 3 Kentucky | Full list ' ' '
