CHICAGO -- Clayton Kershaws playoff renaissance is over, at least for this year. Harvey Grant Jersey . The ace flopped at a big moment -- again.Kershaws postseason resume took another hit in Game 6 of the NL Championship Series, finishing off the reeling Los Angeles Dodgers. The Chicago Cubs beat up the three-time Cy Young Award winner and took advantage of Los Angeles shaky defense on their way to a 5-0 victory Saturday night, leaving the Dodgers still in search of their first World Series trip since winning the title in 1988.Kershaw could have started Game 5 on three days rest, but manager Dave Roberts decided to save him for Saturday night at Wrigley Field. Roberts was hoping a couple more days would help Kershaw duplicate his performance from Game 2, when he pitched seven innings of two-hit ball in a 1-0 victory.The decision worked out quite well -- for the Cubs. After winning a pair of shutouts in Games 2 and 3, the Dodgers dropped the next two by a combined score of 18-6. Even the great Kershaw was unable to slow Chicagos momentum, and Dave Roberts first season as Dodgers manager ended in disappointment.The left-hander allowed four earned runs and seven hits while dropping to 4-7 with a 4.55 ERA in 18 playoff games.I think that the first thing I saw is the Cubs hitters, they had a great game plan tonight, Roberts said. And there was a couple mistake sliders that they took advantage of. But they were running counts, they used the whole field, and there was traffic all night for Clayton. And he gave it everything he had, but when they did -- when he did make a mistake, they made him pay.Fowler hit a ground-rule double on Kershaws third pitch of the night, and the Cubs were off and running. Kris Bryant followed with an RBI single. Then left fielder Andrew Toles dropped Anthony Rizzos fly ball to the gap in left-center, setting up Ben Zobrists sacrifice fly.It was the first time Kershaw had given up two runs in the first inning all season.Fowler added a two-out RBI single in the second, rookie Willson Contreras hit a leadoff drive in the fourth and Anthony Rizzo connected in the fifth. It was the first time Kershaw had allowed two homers in a game since April 9 at San Francisco.That was it for Roberts, who hit for Kershaw in the sixth.While Kershaw struggled against the Cubs, the Dodgers were shut down by Kyle Hendricks and Aroldis Chapman, who combined on a two-hitter. Los Angeles had four baserunners, no advancing past first as the Cubs turned three double plays and ended an inning with a pickoff.Dave Roberts managed the Dodgers to the NL West title after taking over for Don Mattingly. But injuries to Scott Kazmir, Brandon McCarthy, Brett Anderson and Hyun-Jin Ryu hurt rotation depth.Kenta Maeda, who won 16 games during his rookie season, struggled in the playoffs, and 20-year-old Julio Urias was knocked out in the fourth inning of his first postseason start in Game 4 on Wednesday night.Los Angeles went with three starters in the Division Series against Washington and Kershaw pitched three times, including a two-out save in the clinching Game 5. When he stepped up again in his first start in the NLCS, it looked as if he might be on the verge of a postseason breakthrough.But his turnaround came to a screeching halt on a cool night in the Windy City. He dropped to 1/3 with a 6.28 ERA in five career starts with the Dodgers facing postseason elimination, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.We have asked a lot of Clayton all year long, so, again, its just more of you got to give those hitters credit, Roberts said.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Washington Wizards Shirts . PETERSBURG, Fla. Larry Stewart Jersey . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. https://www.cheapwizardsonline.com/709k-javale-mcgee-jersey-wizards.html . No. 13-seeded John Isner and No. 21 Philipp Kohlschreiber were among six players who dropped out of the tournament on Tuesday, joining No. 12 seed Tommy Haas and two other players who withdrew on Monday. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Ten Brazilians who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group were arrested Thursday, authorities announced, describing them as amateurs who discussed on social media the possibility of staging attacks during next months Olympics.Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes said in the capital, Brasilia, that the 10 were being held on two terrorism-related charges and that two more people were being sought.Authorities said any attack plan would have had little chance of coming to fruition, citing the groups lack of resources and skills.But officials and security experts argued that police were justified in being aggressive in light of lone wolf attacks staged in the U.S. and Europe by men with little or no training.Moraes said police acted because the group discussed using weapons and guerrilla tactics to potentially launch an attack during the Olympics, which begin in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 5. They will remain in police custody for at least 30 days.They were complete amateurs and ill-prepared to actually launch an attack, Moraes said. A few days ago they said they should start practicing martial arts, for example.He said that there were no specific targets for an attack, but that even disorganized groups have to be taken seriously.The possibility of an attack is not so far-fetched even though Brazil has never been a target for terrorism, said Alex Kassirer, a counterterrorism analyst at Flashpoint, a New York-based intelligence group.The Olympics is a really unique opportunity to be able to target a concentration of all of the enemies in one area, she said.Kassirer pointed out the Islamic State group launched a channel in May on the messaging app Telegram to disseminate jihadi propaganda specifically in Portuguese. On Sunday, another channel vowed allegiance to IS, although its authenticity has not been determined, she said.The arrests were made in 10 different states, including Sao Paulo and Parana in the southern part of the country, and it was not clear whether the suspects knew each other beyond their online contacts.Moraes said authorities seized computers, cellphones and other equipment, but no weapons.Authorities said the investigation that begann in April showed the suspects had all been baptized as Islamic State sympathizers online but none had actually traveled to Syria or Iraq, the groups stronghold, or received any training. Rasheed Wallace Jersey. Several were allegedly trying to secure financing from IS.Investigators said none of the suspects was of Arab descent, but released no details on their religion. They were described as being between the ages of 20 and 40, except for one minor.Newton de Oliveira, a professor and security specialist at Mackenzie Presbyterian University in Rio de Janeiro, applauded authorities for detecting the group, saying recent world events raised worries about terrorism during the sporting event.But he cautioned it was hard to say how serious this threat was.Its not clear whether we are talking about young people getting carried away or if they were going to move forward with actions, Oliveira said.The justice minister said one of the suspects communicated with a store in Paraguay via email in an alleged attempt to buy an AK-47 assault rifle, apparently the most concrete action taken toward a possible attack. The email communication was intercepted by police.Brazilians are allowed to possess small firearms but must have a license and training to do so. Only members of the military may possess assault weapons like the AK-47, although those and other firearms are common in the country, especially in slums controlled by drug gangs.Last week the top military aide for Brazils interim government said concerns over terrorism had reached a higher level after the truck attack that killed 84 people in Nice, France.Officials did not raise the countrys terror alert level Thursday following the raids.Security has emerged as the top concern during the Olympics, including violence possibly spilling over from Rios hundreds of slums. Authorities have said 85,000 police officers and soldiers will be patrolling during the competitions.---This story has been corrected to reflect that the store from which one suspect allegedly tried to acquire an assault rifle is in Paraguay, not Brazil.
