MINNEAPOLIS -- Chicago manager Robin Ventura is no longer surprised when Jose Abreu hits a long home run or does something else spectacular. Mallory Pugh Jersey . Abreu hit his major league-leading 30th homer and drove in three runs, leading the White Sox past the Minnesota Twins 9-5 on Friday night. "I think were past the point of unexpected with him," Ventura said. "You just expect him to be in the middle of things when its happening." Abreu had two hits and scored twice. The Cuban rookie has 77 RBIs -- Detroits Miguel Cabrera began the day leading the majors with 80. Fellow slugger and teammate Adam Dunn is even more impressed with Abreu than his manager. "Baseballs been around a long time and theres been a lot of rookies come up but for him to do what hes done, I dont think anybody expected that," Dunn said. "Am I surprised by it? Not really." The White Sox said in research by the Elias Sports Bureau that Abreus 89 games are the third fastest in major league history to reach 30 home runs. He also joined Jose Canseco and Tony Oliva as the only Cuban-born rookies to hit 30 homers. Alexei Ramirez and Tyler Flowers also homered for the White Sox. Dayan Viciedo tied a career high with four of Chicagos 17 hits. John Danks (9-6), the subject of recent trade rumours, gave up four runs over seven innings. Oswaldo Arcia and Josh Willingham homered for Minnesota, which has lost 10 of its last 13 home games. Abreu drove a hanging curveball from Kevin Correia (5-13) into the bullpen in left-centre field to give Chicago a 3-0 lead in the first inning. "The ball was flying everywhere. Bloops, blasts, the whole package," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. The White Sox have won six of their last nine. Danks set down 12 batters in a row before Chris Colabello lined two-run single in the sixth. Heading into the start, Danks was 0-6 with a 6.18 ERA in his last eight games against Minnesota. An early three-run blast from Abreu sure helps in forgetting about some of those trade rumours. "I dont get caught up in any of that, I really dont," Danks said. "Ive heard some things about the rumours and stuff out there. I have no control over that. Im going to be in Chicago hopefully my whole career, but if something happens well cross that bridge when we get there." After Kurt Suzuki had a sacrifice fly in the Twins second, Ramirez opened the third with a home run off the facing of the upper deck in left. Flowers sent a drive off the upper deck to start the seventh, one of his three hits. Correia, also mentioned in trade speculation, lasted just four innings for the second consecutive start. Watching those balls fly over the fence and the bloopers find open space wasnt any fun for him. "Thats two bad starts in a row. I need to get on another good run here," Correia said. NOTES: Twins star Joe Mauer began hitting soft toss in the batting cage as he works his way back from an oblique strain. ... Viciedo has three four-hit games in his career. ... The Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell to make his first big league start on Saturday in place of the injured Kyle Gibson (back). Gibson hopes to start Tuesdays game in Kansas City. Darnell will face All-Star Chris Sale (9-1, 2.03). ... To make room for Darnell, Minnesota optioned SS Jorge Polanco to Double-A New Britain. Megan Rapinoe Jersey . If Vettel wins at Suzuka on Sunday, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles.

TSN platforms will broadcast 75+ live games per season tripling the networks current slate of MLB games. With the new deal TSN retains rights to ESPNs SUNDAY NIGHT BASEBALL and, for the first time, acquires rights to ESPNs MONDAY NIGHT BASEBALL and WEDNESDAY NIGHT BASEBALL.METAIRIE, La. - Mark Ingram sprinted to his left, turned to his right, snagged a short pass and accelerated up field.Practicing without limitations on Wednesday, Ingram looked ready to return to a New Orleans offence that once again ranks among the NFLs best when the Saints play at Detroit on Sunday.However, New Orleans could be without tight end Jimmy Graham, who leads the clubs in receptions, yards receiving and touchdown catches.Graham wore a helmet to practice and participated in stretches, but otherwise stood around and watched the portion of individual drills open to media. The Saints later announced that Graham sat out the team drills, which are closed to reporters, and coach Sean Payton declined to discuss Grahams prospects for playing against the Lions.Payton also stopped short of guaranteeing that Ingram would play in Detroit.Hes doing well and we will kind of see how we handle that on Sunday, Payton said. Obviously we value depth at that position.Ingram said he could play with a little pad on the hand he broke in Week 2 at Cleveland. The running back needed surgery and missed three games before New Orleans had last weekend off.Im ready to go, full-go, 100 per cent full-tilt, Ingram said. They havent babied me or eased me into practice, so Ive been doing everything catching, running blocking.A former Heisman Trophy winner at Alabama and 2011 first-round draft choice, Ingram looked in his first two games like he might have his best season yet.Hes gained 143 yards on 24 carries good for a team-high 6 yards per carry. He also scored three touchdowns.It was disappointing, frustrating to have an injury, Ingram said. There wasnt much I could do about it. I had to get the surgery, just try and be positive and it wasnt a long term injury.The Saints still moved the ball well in his absence, with hard-running second-year pro Khiry Robinson and veteran Pierre Thomas sharing most of the carries.The Saints rank eighth in the NFL in rushing with about 133 yards per game, and theyre averaging 5.2 yards per carry as a team.Meanwhile, New Orleans ranks second in passing with 309.8 yards per game, and quarterback Drew Brees said hes confident thhe Saints offence is dynamic enough to maintain such production if Graham sits out. Kelley OHara Jersey. Different guys will have opportunities, Brees said. If Jimmys not able to go, were going to miss him. But Im really confident those other guys are going to do a great job.Brees stressed that he has plenty of confidence in veteran tight end Ben Watson as well as second-year tight end Josh Hill, whose seven catches include one for 37-yards and a 34-yard touchdown.While the Saints are 2-3, moving the ball has not been one of their problems. Their 442.8 yards per game ranks behind only Indianapolis, which averages 444 yards. However, the Saints are 13th in scoring with 26.4 points per game. Theyve been hurt by 10 turnovers, including Brees six interceptions.I feel like weve run the ball very well. I feel like weve been very balanced. I feel like weve maintained a lot of long drives that ended up in touchdowns, Brees said. Id say weve turned the ball over too much, which is my responsibility, more so than anybody.Brees said the Saints also are not hitting on as many big plays as usual, but added, You can only take what the defence is giving you. You dont want to read into that too much because then all the sudden you feel like we have to manufacture these big plays, we have to force these big plays, and if theyre not there, thats when some of those mistakes come.Since Payton, who designed the offence, and Brees arrived in New Orleans in 2006, the Saints have never ranked worse than sixth in yards gained for a whole season, and have ranked first four times.Right tackle Zach Strief has also been with New Orleans since 2006, and noted, As long as we have Drew and as long as we have coach Payton, I think that well be a consistently good offence.Notes: FB Erik Lorig, who has yet to play this season because of an ankle injury, practiced fully on Wednesday, as did C Jonathan Goodwin, who was knocked out of New Orleans previous game with a knee bruise. ... Those missing practice included LBs Ramon Humber and Kyle Knox, both with ankle injuries, and CB Patrick Robinson (hamstring).___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Stitched Jerseys NFL T-shirts From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 ' ' '
