PHILADELPHIA -- Adrian Gonzalez is crushing baseballs again and the Los Angeles Dodgers are riding their veteran slugger up the standings. Nike Roshe Sale Cheap.Gonzalez hit two home runs and had five RBI to help the Dodgers extend their lead in the NL West with a 7-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.Justin Turner also homered and Joc Pederson reached base four times for the first-place Dodgers, who moved 1 1/2 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants, who lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday. On Tuesday, Los Angeles took over sole possession of the division lead for the first time since May 10.I just continue to do the things that are working, said Gonzalez, who had an epidural in early May to deal with back problems. When you feel good physically and you can take the right path, you just keep doing the things that are working -- good base, be on your back side and then let your hands work.With the Dodgers trailing 1-0 in the fourth, Gonzalez lined a 3-1 fastball into the seats in right-center field for a three-run homer. Turner singled and Josh Reddick walked to lead off the inning.Gonzalez followed that with a two-run homer in the seventh after Corey Seager led off the inning with a double.It was the 34-year-old first basemans first multi-homer game of the season and the 20th of his career. Gonzalez, who has 12 homers, extended his hitting streak to 10 games and is 18 for 40 in that span.With Adrian, I know his preparation, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. I know he always has the ability to drive in a run. I think early on, he was a victim of trying to out-think things as far as beating the shift. There was a point about five weeks ago when he decided to get the head to the ball and pull the baseball in the air a little bit more.Turner hit his 22nd home run after Seager singled in the fifth, pushing the Dodgers ahead 5-1.Scott Kazmir (10-6) allowed eight hits and two earned runs in five-plus innings to pick up his first win in four starts and improve his road record to 6-0. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and reliever Grant Dayton got out of another bases-loaded jam in the sixth after Kazmir allowed a leadoff homer to Tommy Joseph followed by three straight singles.Kazmir admitted he didnt feel very good throughout his start but was pleased to see the lineup have his back.Finally I feel like the offense is catching up to the pitching staff, Turner said. It makes it fun to play when everybodys having good at-bats.Making the third start of his career, Jake Thompson (1-2) surrendered just one hit through the first three innings before allowing five runs, four hits and three walks over the next two to get chased after five.I think I was a little too fine, falling behind hitters, Thompson said. When youre facing a lineup like those guys have, thats not a very good place to be.UTLEYS BIG WELCOME (AGAIN)Chase Utley went 0 for 5 with two strikeouts in his second game back in Philadelphia since the Phillies traded him to the Dodgers last August. In his emotional return a night earlier, the Dodgers second baseman homered twice and received two curtain calls from the adoring Philly fans. Utley, a six-time All-Star who helped the Phillies win five straight NL East titles and the 2008 World Series, was greeted to another long standing ovation leading off Wednesdays game.DOING IT WITH HIS GLOVE, TOOGonzalez made a diving catch to snag a line drive by Odubel Herrera in the first, before falling right on first base to complete a double play.LOVING THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVEThe Dodgers are 12-3 in their last 15 games at Citizens Bank Park. They have won five straight series in Philly.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: RHP Aaron Nola was transferred to the 60-day DL, ending his season. Out since Aug. 3 with a right elbow strain, the 23-year-old was 6-9 with a 4.78 ERA in 20 starts.The Phillies announced Wednesday that Nola was replaced on the 40-man roster by RHP Frank Herrmann, while Elvis Araujo was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Herrmann made his first major league appearance since 2012, pitching a scoreless inning Wednesday.Dodgers: The Dodgers plan to activate LHP Adam Liberatore (2-0, 1.62) on Friday. The reliever made his second rehab appearance Tuesday night, striking out two in a scoreless inning for Triple-A Oklahoma City.UP NEXTThe Phillies and Dodgers conclude their three-game series Thursday night with Philadelphia RHP Jerad Eickhoff (8-12, 3.82) opposing RHP Ross Stripling (3-4, 4.07). Cheap Nike Roshe Shoes . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Nike Roshe Clearance Sale . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Ty Lawson is trying to rebuild his image -- along with his NBA career.Following a tumultuous year in which he was arrested twice for DUI and entered alcohol rehab, lost his starting job with the Houston Rockets and spent the final 13 games of the season mostly coming off the bench in Indiana, the veteran point guard is in Sacramento on a one-year prove-it contract.And thats just what the 28-year-old former first-round draft pick intends to do -- on and off the court.Sometimes, an experience, you have to grow from it, Lawson said Monday at the Kings media day. I think Ive grown a lot and Im just ready to move forward. I heard a GM said, `I think he lost a step. He cant shoot anymore. Ive got a lot to prove and I got a chip on my shoulder to prove it.Lawson joins a crowded depth chart at point guard that includes holdover Darren Collison along with newcomers Garrett Temple and Jordan Farmar.With Collison facing a likely NBA suspension following his conviction on a misdemeanor domestic abuse charge stemming from an incident in May, Lawson is projected as the season-opening starter.Coach Dave Joerger, who takes over the Kings after spending the last three seasons in Memphis, made it clear hes got high expectations for Lawson.Im counting on Ty to be a pro, Joerger said. Its an important year for him. I have a lot of confidence in him. Im looking forward to him playing well and being a leader for our team.Lawson actually signed with Sacramento following a pep talk with an unlikely Kings supporter -- former coach George Karl, who had previously coached Lawson when the two were in Denver. Lawson spent his first six seasons with the Nuggets, four of them with Karl as his coach.Karl coached the Kings for the final 30 games in 2014 and all of 2015 before being fired in the offseason. Although the situation in Sacramento ended messy for Karl, he gave the franchise a ringing endorsement to Lawson.I talked to him three or four times before I made the decision to come here, jusst about the organization, how everything is, was it really as bad as what everybody was saying, Lawson said. Nike Roshe Clearance. He had good things to say. Thats what made me ultimately choose Sacramento over New Orleans.While with the Nuggets, Lawson was a budding star while averaging more than 14 points and six assists during his time there. His off-court issues, however, led to a parting he neither wanted nor expected.Lawson was traded to the Rockets following his second DUI arrest in a six-month period. Lawson also had two previous DUI arrests.After initially starting for Houston, Lawson went to the bench after coach Kevin McHale was fired early in the season and eventually had his contract bought out.That led to a short stint in Indiana where Lawson played 13 games with one start, tinkered with his shot and ultimately lost faith in his own abilities.I feel like that whole year I wasnt even really sure who I was, Lawson said. Last year my confidence was gone. I started second-guessing myself. I actually went back to my 2013 playoffs (tapes) when I was playing the Warriors and I was like, `Did I actually do this? I had to get myself back to the right mindset.It wasnt an easy thing to do, not with fans and media scrutinizing his every move following the two DUI arrests.Lawson understands why he got the looks and why people were so quick to offer their opinions on his situations.He also says the public perception of him is wrong.The person that Im portrayed out there, I dont think people know who I really am, Lawson said. Its kind of tough, going through that day by day. In the microscope, anything I do people are like, `Aw man look at him, looking to the side, giving you the side-eye. So Ive definitely changed as a person.Im just a fun-loving guy that loves to play basketball. I just got in trouble a couple times but that doesnt change what Ive done or who I am. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From ChinaCheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
