PITTSBURGH -- Clint Hurdles night ended three batters in on Wednesday, when the Pittsburgh Pirates manager was ejected for arguing a call with home plate umpire Sam Holbrook. Scarpe Tn Uomo .The extra down time gave Hurdle a chance to watch struggling pitcher Jeff Locke from a different perspective. Hurdle wasnt exactly thrilled with what he saw.Locke walked five batters and gave up five runs before getting pulled in the top of the fourth inning of a 9-5 loss to Milwaukee, another shaky performance in a month full of them. Pittsburgh walked nine Brewers in all.I had an excellent opportunity tonight to watch where our targets were setting and where the pitchers were going, Hurdle said. It wasnt anywhere near where we need to be.Jordy Mercer went 2 for 3 with two RBI for the Pirates. David Freese doubled twice and Starling Marte added a pair of hits but Pittsburgh spent most of the game chasing the Brewers after Locke (8-6) had his ERA in July balloon to 8.16.I just had a really hard time getting ahead of people and then putting somebody away, Locke said. It seemed everybody we started with a strike to, we followed up with a ball or two balls or three balls. Just unable to put anybody away.Lockes spot in the rotation appears safe at the moment but perhaps not for much longer. Rookie Tyler Glasnow will return to the majors against Philadelphia this weekend, and with Jon Niese and Juan Nicasio both available in the bullpen and the trade deadline looming, the Pirates have options if Locke continues to have issues with consistency.Were continuing to try and work with it and help him, Hurdle said. I know hes trying to solve it.Hurdle spent most of the 3 hour, 43 minute game watching from the clubhouse after disagreeing with Holbrook, who ruled a chopper by Milwaukees Ryan Braun that bounced up and struck the slugger a foul ball. Hurdle, who believed Braun was out of the batters box and out as a result, was tossed without even exiting the dugout.It was Hurdles 50th career ejection.I just shared my view that I thought it hit him in fair play, Hurdle said. He said `thats enough. I thought it was a little early to say `thats enough. Obviously, that was enough. I exited at that point. Time out. Its the earliest Ive been run.Jonathan Lucroy drove in three runs for the Brewers, including a two-run single in the sixth inning off reliever A.J. Schugel that broke things open for good. Braun, Jonathan Villar and Hernan Perez had two hits each for Milwaukee and Chris Carter and Scooter Gennett drove in two runs apiece.Carlos Torres (2-1) won in relief of Chase Anderson, who struggled once again but was bailed out by an offense that took it to Locke and added on after the Pirates drew within 5-4 in the fifth on Freeses RBI-double to right.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: Rookie RHP Jameson Taillon remained under the MLB concussion protocol on Wednesday but trainer Todd Tomczyk said Taillon is checking out very well and is showing no ill effects of the line drive he took to the back of the head on Tuesday night. Taillon lay on the ground for several minutes after getting hit by a shot off Perezs bat in the second inning but was allowed to remain in the game after getting cleared by Tomczyk and team doctor Edward Snell.I was looking for reasons (to take him out), Tomczyk said. But he continued to show that there was no serious risk there.The 24-year-old will continue to be monitored but barring a setback will make his next scheduled start on Sunday against Philadelphia.UP NEXT:Brewers: Matt Garza will try to snap a three-game losing streak when he makes his seventh start of the season in the series finale. The 32-year-old is 2/3 with a 4.35 ERA in nine career starts against the Pirates.Pirates: Francisco Liriano looks to rediscover his dominance at PNC Park on Thursday in the series finale. Liriano is 0-3 with a 6.08 ERA in his last five home starts following a stretch in which the Pirates won 14 straight starts at PNC with Liriano on the mound. Air Max Plus Rosa . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said.

NEW YORK -- The upcoming Olympic Games are not likely to have a major impact on the spread of Zika virus, although four developing countries could face a substantially higher risk, according to a new government estimate.U.S. researchers tried to calculate whether the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, which is in the midst of a Zika epidemic, will lead to outbreaks that wouldnt have happened otherwise. The danger is that infected travelers might be bitten by mosquitoes after returning to their home nations, which would potentially spread Zika to other people and spark an outbreak.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that 19 countries that currently do not have Zika have the right conditions for outbreaks if it is imported by people returning from the Olympics. But in only four of the 19 countries is the issue considered substantial: Yemen, at the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula, and Chad, Djibouti and Eritrea in Africa.CDC researchers made their predictions based on a range of factors, including air travel patterns between Brazil and other countries and the presence of a tropical mosquito that is the main way Zika spreads to people.The four nations at greatest risk from the Olympics generally have no or very few travelers to Zika outbreak countries. Only a dozen to several dozen people are expected to travel to the Rio Games from each of these countries, but those small numbers represent a notable jump from regular traffic volume to outbreak countries, said the CDCs Dr.?Martin Cetron, one of the authors of the report.That doesnt mean health officials are predicting outbreaks in those four countries, Cetron added.The Olympics are happening at a colder time of year in Rio, when mosquito activity is at a minimum. If people take preccautions against mosquito bites, these four countries could be spared Olympics-related outbreaks, he said. Nike Tn Rosse. The Olympic and Paralympic Games are expected to draw an estimated 350,000 to 500,000 international visitors and athletes from 207 countries. But health officials say that travel this year will account for less than 1 percent of international travel to Zika outbreak countries.Last month, the World Health Organization rejected calls by some to cancel the summer Olympics, saying there is a very low risk the Olympics will accelerate the spread of Zika around the world.The new CDC report seems to confirm that assessment, said Justin Lessler, a Johns Hopkins University epidemiologist who focuses on computational approaches to predict the spread of disease.I think the most important result highlighted in this paper is how insignificant the additional risk of global Zika transmission caused by the Olympics is, Lessler said in an email.Earlier this year, the WHO declared Zika a global emergency after seeing an epidemic spreading through Latin America and the Caribbean.In most cases, Zika infections cause, at worst, mild symptoms that disappear within a week. But the WHO declaration was driven by a link between infections in pregnant women and the development of severe brain-related birth defects in their fetuses.Health officials have advised pregnant women to avoid travel to Zika outbreak countries, including Brazil while the Olympics are taking place.Zika can also be spread through sex, and health officials are advising condom use and other precautions for travelers.---Online:CDC report: NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
