BOSTON -- Koji Uehara entered Tuesday nights game in a nonsave situation in the ninth inning. Puma Womens Shoes On Sale . Seven pitches later, he exited clutching his right arm and praying he hadnt suffered a serious injury.It was the last thing the Boston Red Sox needed, especially with closer Craig Kimbrel already on the disabled list.Uehara described the injury as muscle soreness after the Red Soxs 4-0 win over the San Francisco Giants. Boston manager John Farrell characterized it as a strained pectoral muscle. Either way, the Red Sox wont be certain how long Uehara will be sidelined until the 41-year-old right-hander is re-evaluated Wednesday.Its just some soreness that I feel, Uehara said through translator C.J. Matsumoto. I thought it was just soreness. Muscle soreness. Im just praying that its not that serious.Uehara said he felt the soreness on his fifth pitch of the inning. He struck out Giants first baseman Brandon Belt on the next pitch, then threw one pitch to Buster Posey before summoning Farrell and an athletic trainer. After a brief mound conference, Uehara left the game and went directly into the clubhouse to be examined.Farrell defended his decision to use Uehara with the Red Sox leading by four runs, even though the team is set to begin a stretch of 20 consecutive games without a day off and Kimbrel is out until at least next month after undergoing surgery on his left knee on July 11.Weve seen Koji Uehara where hes worked best with a clean inning, Farrell said. If [the Giants] have got a guy on, middle of the order, going to go to him. Hes most effective, most efficient with a clean inning. Four-run game at home, thats the reason to go to him in that spot.Indeed, Farrell has been consistent with his usage of Uehara is such situations. Since midway through the 2013 season, when Uehara took over in the closer role, Farrell has brought him in to start the ninth inning with a four-run lead 12 times.Farrell said he cant tell you at this point how much time Koji will miss.In Ueharas absence, recently acquired setup man Brad Ziegler would be the first choice to close games. Ziegler had 18 saves for the Arizona Diamondbacks before being traded to the Red Sox on July 9.The Red Sox also are expecting setup man Junichi Tazawa (right shoulder impingement) to return from the disabled list before Friday nights game against the Minnesota Twins.As weve had to go to other guys to step up, well look to do that, Farrell said. With Brad here, again, not knowing how long Koji will be down, weve got other options to go to to close out ballgames. Puma Womens Shoes Blue .

Here are his mid-season NBA awards.  MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. . Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. NICEVILLE, Fla. -- Stifling defense, as usual, carried the day again for No. 7 Virginia as the Cavaliers cruised to their fifth straight win.Jerred Reuter led a well-balanced scoring attack with 14 points, but it was that trademark defense that set the tone for a 74-41 victory over Iowa on Friday night in the semifinals of the Emerald Coast Classic.Its what we do, said London Perrantes, who added 12 points and led the Cavaliers with four assists. We work on defense every single day in practice. We know what we have to do to win games.The Cavaliers (5-0) will play for the tournament title on Saturday against Providence, which beat Memphis 60-51 in the other semifinal.Isaiah Wilkins had 11 points for Virginia and Darius Thompson had 10.Offense, though, took a back seat as it often does whenever Virginia plays.The Cavaliers began the day leading the nation in scoring defense by holding opponents to 38.8 points per game.Iowa (3-2) barely bested that average, led by Peter Joks 13 points.They really are a great example of five guys playing as one, Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. Theyre in the gaps, theyre fighting the post, they close off penetration.The Hawkeyes shot only 31.3 percent from the field including 26.1 percent from 3-point range.The Cavaliers hit 48.3 percent from the field including 47.1 percent on 3s.You could see they had some inexperience, just like we do, Virginia coach Tony Bennett said of Iowa. Theyre still coming together and finding themselves.Iowa opened the scoring with two free throws by Nicholas Baer, but Virginia went on an 11-0 run that began with a 3-pointer by Thompson and the Hawkeyes never threatened again.The win was the first for Virginia in only the third game between the schools. The previous meetings came in the 1997 NCAA Tournaments first round and the 2013 NIT quarterfinals.Virginia is seeking itts fourth straight regular-season tournament championship. Puma Womens Shoes Green. BIG PICTUREVirginia: The Cavaliers passed their first real test of the season on Black Friday after fattening up with four easy pre-Thanksgiving wins against UNC Greensboro, St. Francis, Brooklyn, Yale and Grambling State. They did it without Memphis transfer Austin Nichols, who was expected to provide low post scoring but was dismissed from the team for rules violations a week earlier. Now the going continues to get tougher with Memphis or Providence on Saturday and then Ohio State in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Wednesday, followed by No. 19 West Virginia and East Carolina.Iowa: The high-flying Hawkeyes, who had been averaging 96.2 points per game before Friday, crash landed against Virginias defensive scheme.The Hawkeyes considered it a learning experience going in and theyll quickly get a chance to see how well they grasped that lesson against Memphis, a proficient defensive team. Then it doesnt get any easier next week when Iowa plays at Notre Dame in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge on Tuesday.POLL IMPLICATIONSDefeating Iowa will strengthen Virginias Top 10 ranking as it marks the Cavaliers first win against a major conference foe. Their No. 7 ranking is based on blowout wins against four much weaker opponents to open the season.FLORIDA HEXVirginia broke a two-game losing streak in Florida, but it was just the third win in the Cavaliers last 23 trips to the Sunshine State including 1-11 at Florida State and 1-6 at Miami.UP NEXTVirginia: The Cavaliers play for the tournament championship Saturday against Providence at Northwest Florida State College.Iowa: The Hawkeyes play in the Emerald Coast consolation game Saturday against Memphis. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
