ANAHEIM, Calif. Montravius Adams Jersey . -- Say this for Los Angeles Angels rookie Jefry Marte, he understands good timing.Playing before his mother in the United States for the first time, the 25-year-old Marte hit his first career grand slam to spark a seven-run fourth inning and lead the Angels to an 8-1 victory Tuesday over the Oakland Athletics.Im very happy, Marte said through an interpreter. I thank God for the opportunity. I feel even happier because my mom was watching from the stands.Marte said his mother, Louisa, had recently received her visa from his native Dominican Republic. It was his 13th home run of the season.Right-hander Ricky Nolasco, who had struggled in his first five starts for the Angels (0-4, 5.70 ERA), allowed only one unearned in eight innings and is 4-2 with a 1.47 ERA in his last six starts.Nolasco (8-14), who has not allowed an earned run in his last three games, said it was his last scheduled start of the season.Its tough to say it will carry over into next season, but its nice to finish this like that, Nolasco said.You always want to go into the offseason on a good note. Eight innings is nice.As rookie right-hander Daniel Mengden (2-9) gave up all eight runs and nine hits in just over three innings.Oakland manager Bob Melvin was nonetheless encouraged by what hes seen from the 23-year-old this season.I think he learned that he can pitch here, Melvin said. I think he learned when hes aggressive and gets ahead, he can have success. Its a little bit when hes on the run and guys are on base, and maybe he isnt as confident in his fastball or throwing the ball over the plate early in the count.He gets a little defensive with guys on base.The Angels managed 12 hits, none after the fifth inning, and seven were for extra bases. Kole Calhoun added two doubles and a triple, as the Angels won for the sixth time in seven games.Oakland third baseman Ryon Healy had three hits, including a double to drive in the As only run. The rookie had never played third base before this season and is hitting .309.Hes a tough kid, Melvin said. He can hit. Hes confident. He hasnt played the position and now he plays third base pretty well. It hasnt bothered him at all. He works hard every day. The bottom line is -- he can hit.Marte has had almost the opposite experience. He came up in May as a third baseman. Hes started 20 games at third, 28 at first and 22 in left -- a position he had never played before at any level.Hes found his power game wherever he played, with 27 of his 59 hits this season going for extra basesThe As dropped to 67-90 with the defeat, giving them consecutive 90-loss seasons for only the second time in Oakland history (1977-79). The As have lost seven of eight.WALK THIS WAYMike Trouts walk in the fourth inning gave him 113 on the season, tying him for the Angels team record with Tony Phillips (1995) for most in a season. Trout leads the majors in walks and on-base percentage (.441).ESCOBAR LEAVES EARLYAngels 3B Yunel Escobar left the game after three innings, complaining of right shoulder stiffness.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: Originally the team said rookie infielder Renato Nunez would be out for a day or two with a sore back, but by game-time announced he was available.Angels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (strained elbow), who has made only nine starts this season, threw a bullpen session and is expected to make a brief start either Saturday or Sunday. . DH Albert Pujols is out with right Plantar Fasciitis.UP NEXTAthletics: RHP Sonny Gray (5-11) is scheduled to come off the DL (strained right forearm) to make a brief start. Manager Bob Melvin said he would only throw about 30 pitches.Angels: Rookie RHP Alex Meyer (1-3) is scheduled to make his fifth start for the Angels since his Aug. 1 trade from the Twins. He is 1-2 with a 4.58 ERA with the Angels. Montravius Adams Womens Jersey . After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. Josh Jones Packers Jersey . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour. Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. Often reticent about getting involved in divisive politics, the sporting world has been on quite an activist roll when it comes to North Carolina.It started with the NBA stripping away its lucrative All-Star Game from Charlotte because of a state law that limits protections for LGBT people. The NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference followed suit this week, reclaiming a host of major events including the first and seconds rounds of the mens basketball tournament and the ACC football championship.Theres still room to dole out more financial pain, but that would require NASCAR and golf -- two entities with a hefty stake in the Tar Heel state -- to step up.Not going to happen.NASCAR, which has its headquarters, its hall of fame and one of its biggest races in the Charlotte area, is not the least bit inclined to get involved in the fight over HB2, the so-called bathroom law.Already struggling to fill seats and draw television viewers, the organization is undoubtedly mindful that its conservative fan base wouldnt take kindly to anything that sounds the least bit progressive.Ditto for golf, another sport that its fair to say comes down largely on the right side of the political spectrum. Theres zero chance that next years PGA Championship will be held anywhere other than Charlottes Quail Hollow Club or, looking much further down the road, that the 2024 U.S. Open wont be held at Pinehurst.Lets face it: If youre on a quest for social justice, better look elsewhere.Nothing to see here.NASCAR czar Brian France couldve made quite a splash by threatening to move his companys headquarters to a more-inclusive state or pull the two races held each year at Charlotte Motor Speedway -- one on Memorial Day weekend, the other part of the end-of-the-season playoff.Instead, hes continually talked out of both sides of his mouth, expressing opposition to the law but not doing anything to show hes really displeased.We dont agree with the law, he said again this week. Anything that has a discriminating component to it, we are not in favor of it. I have voiced my views directly to the governor. We are working with the governor to express our disappointment in that bill. But we dont write legislation. We are going to continue to work behind the scenes to express our values and the things that we think are important.The PGA of America sounded a similar theme when asked about holding its 2017 championship in a state that not only requires transgender people to use restrooms that match the gender on their birth certificate, but excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from any sort of statewide antidiscrimination protections.We are trying to do eeverything we can, as part of our strategic plan for our organization in golf, to make the game as inclusive as possible, said Pete Bevacqua, the PGAs chief executive officer. Jamaal Williams Jersey. Were not perfect. Were trying.Not trying hard enough.Then again, when has golf -- or NACAR, for that matter -- ever taken a leading role to make society more inclusive?Golf had a Caucasian-only clause in its rulebook until 1961, kept holding tournaments at private clubs that discriminated against African-Americans and other ethnic and religious groups until the early 1990s, and continues to grapple with the issue of male-only memberships. NASCAR has its roots in the segregationist South and only in recent years took a stand against the Confederate flag.Bevacqua has made it clear that next years PGA Championship will be held at Quail Hollow, no matter what happens with HB2 after the November election.North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, a strong supporter of the law, is running for another term, even while facing condemnation from a broad spectrum that also includes musicians and the businesses community.More troubling, Bevacqua wouldnt even commit to the PGA of American barring another major championship from being awarded to North Carolina if the law remains on the books.Well see how it goes next year, he said recently during this years PGA Championship at Baltusrol. We think its going to be and we know its going to be a wonderful championship when you get to the site and when the best players in the world descend on that golf course and play a golf course that they will never have seen in terms of the changes that have been made.See, it doesnt matter whats going on outside the gates as long as the greens are in tip-top condition.Bevacqua went on to parrot the message that France has been regurgitating over and over again: Hey, theres only so much a multibillion-dollar industry can do, despite all evidence to the contrary.We cant control the policies, the rules and the regulations around the country and municipalities and states, Bevacqua said. We can only do what we can do. And well try to make that PGA Championship -- like we do every PGA Championship -- enjoyable, inclusive, and shine a great light on our organization and the game of golf.Too bad hes not willing to shine that bright light on what matters.---Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.
