ive study on the subject.A study is under way in California

PITTSBURGH -- Tyler Moore knew what Clint Hurdle was thinking. Mens Ugg Boots Australia . With one out and first base open in the eighth inning of a one-run game, Moore fully expected the Pittsburgh Pirates manager to intentionally walk the batter in front of him. Moore was hitting .158 and had struck out six times in the three-game series. "It fires you up," Moore said. "I would have done the same thing." The move backfired, though, as Moore followed the walk to Adam LaRoche by hitting a three-run homer off rookie reliever Bryan Morris to seal the Washington Nationals 6-2 victory over the Pirates on Sunday. LaRoche had been 4 for 7 with four walks in the series to that point. "LaRoche had been on base all weekend and seeing the ball well," Hurdle said. "We decided to go right-on-right there with Morris against Moore and it didnt work out." Danny Espinosa homered and drove in three runs and Gio Gonzalez (3-2) won for just the third time in seven starts after winning 21 games last season. Moore homered for the first time this year after hitting 10 in 75 games last season as a rookie. He also hit the go-ahead sacrifice fly Saturday in the ninth inning as the Nationals edged the Pirates 5-4. "Tyler certainly proved last year that hes a run producer but hes been out of whack this season," Washington manager Davey Johnson said. "Hopefully, this is a good sign that things are starting to turn for him." Nationals star Bryce Harper was ejected in the first inning for disputing a checked-swing third strike. He tried to hold up on a 2-2 pitch from Wandy Rodriguez and home plate umpire Bob Davidson pointed to third base ump John Hirschbeck for help. Hirschbeck ruled that Harper had swung. Harper stood outside the batters box, stared at Hirschbeck for a few moments and dropped his bat. Hirschbeck then tossed last seasons NL Rookie of the Year. It was the first ejection this year for Harper and second of his career. "Im not going to badmouth anybody, Im just happy we got the W," Harper said. Said Johnson: "Johns a good umpire and he made the right call. Its tough losing a player in the first inning, though." Starling Marte hit a leadoff homer in the first, his fourth home run in five games for Pittsburgh. Espinosas two-run homer in the fourth put Washington ahead for good at 3-1. He also hit a sacrifice fly in the second as the Nationals won for the fourth time in five games. "Ive made some adjustments in the last few days to help me get the bat to the ball quicker," said Espinosa, who is hitting just .185. "Im feeling a lot better at the plate." Gonzalez (3-2) allowed two runs and five hits in six innings, walking two and striking out five. He had been tagged for 18 runs and 21 hits in his previous four starts, going 1-2 in that span. "Gio did a great job of keeping us in that game after the tough start," Johnson said. "He pitched well." After Marte homered, the Pirates loaded the bases in the first with none out. Gonzalez escaped the jam by striking out Russell Martin and Michael McKenry and getting Brandon Inge to ground out. "The Pirates came out hacking and the game was speeding up," Gonzalez said. "When the game speeds up, you cant get too aggressive and go head-to-head with their aggressiveness. To his credit, (catcher Wilson) Ramos saw that and had me slow the game down and stay calm." Ramos had three hits for the Nationals. Roger Bernandina, who took over for Harper after the ejection, had two hits after entering the game with only one hit all season in 25 at-bats. Rodriguez (2-2) gave up three runs and six hits, striking out seven and walking one in six innings. The Pirates pulled within 3-2 in the sixth when Martin hit an RBI double.

Moore subbed for Werth in right for all three games of the series. ... Tests conducted on Pittsburgh RHP Charlie Mortons right arm revealed no structural damage. Morton, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery performed last June, left his rehab start with Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday after three innings with discomfort in his shoulder.

The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles.A study in the USA claims there is a link between the use of artificial pitches which contain crumb rubber - made from recycled tyres - and cancer. The study - by the University of Washington - is not new and the results do not mean that 3G pitches in the UK hold a health risk.The complete report cannot be made public as it contains personal information of those surveyed, but its conclusions are worrying, according to one of the authors, former US Womens soccer international Amy Griffin.Griffin found that 200 athletes who use artificial surfaces regularly have developed forms of cancer. Of those 200, 158 were footballers and of those 158, 95 were goalkeepers.The report went onto highlight crumb rubber, which is spread over artificial surfaces to act as a support, to prevent wear and tear and soak up excess water, is made of recycled tyres that can contain hazardous levels of toxic chemicals.Those chemicals, if ingested over a long period of time can cause an increased risk of developing cancer. In the USA, tyres either manufactured domestically or imported can contain chemicals such as lead, cadmium and mercury.In reply to a request from Sky Sports News HQ about any health concerns over the use of artificial pitches, FIFA - who has conducted two studies in the last decade - replied: FIFAs Medical Assessment and Research Center (F-MARC) in cooperation with UEFA conducted an analysis of this matter in 2006.At that time, the conclusion was clear: the available body of scientific research on this issue did not substantiate the assumption that cancer resulting from exposure to SBR granulate infills in artificial turf could potentially occur. Since then, several independent research have been conducted -the latest being from 2015- reachingg similar conclusions. Cheap Ugg Boots Australia. FIFA will continue monitoring and analysing any new evidence produced on this matter. The available body of scientific research... did not substantiate the assumption that cancer resulting from exposure to SBR granulate infills in artificial turf could potentially occur. FIFA Artificial pitches are a common sight in football in the UK and the Football Association are spearheading a campaign for more all-weather facilities.Guidance from football authorities in the UK say they are constantly monitoring the situation and at this time are assured there is no evidence to suggest any danger.Sky Sports News HQ are awaiting information from The British Association of Tyre Manufacuturers as to what materials are legally allowed in the manufacture of tyres within the UK and EU.EU health and safety marks state the presence of mercury and benzene in tyres is not allowed while lead and cadmium are at trace levels of 0.05 per cent and 0.001 per cent - the same restrictions are not in place in the US.While many experts believe there is no hard evidence to suggest a link between cancer and crumb rubber, there is yet to be a comprehensive study on the subject.A study is under way in California which certainly intends to be more scientifically intense, but it is not due for publication until June 2018.
