ng. Seager stole second base to get into scoring positi

RIO DE JANEIRO -- In a timely boost for Los Angeles bid for the 2024 Games, the United States is getting a second member on the International Olympic Committees ruling executive board. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Rosa .Former Olympic ice hockey gold medalist Angela Ruggiero was elected as chair of the IOCs athletes commission on Monday, a position which automatically gives her a seat on the policy-making board.Ruggieros term will begin at the close of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics on Aug. 21. She replaces Claudia Bokel, a former Olympic fencer from Germany whose four-year term is expiring.After years without any voice at the higher echelons of the IOC, the U.S. will now have two delegates on the 15-member executive board. Ruggiero will join former rower Anita DeFrantz, who was elected as a board member in 2013.It is an important time within the Olympic movement and our commission has a great responsibility, Ruggiero said. I will make sure our voices arent just heard, but that they are effective and that we empower athletes around the world to do the same.Ruggiero won a hockey gold medal at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, along with silver medals at the 2002 Salt Lake City and 2010 Vancouver Games, and bronze in Turin in 2006.We will welcome her to the IOC executive board, IOC President Thomas Bach said. I am sure that, with her determination and her great experience, she will make a huge contribution.Ruggieros elevation comes at a crucial time for the U.S., with Los Angeles seeking to bring the Summer Games back to the country for the first time since Atlanta hosted the 1996 Olympics.Los Angeles is competing against Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary. The IOC will select the host city in September 2017. New York and Chicago mounted failed bids for the 2012 and 2016 Games, respectively.All four 2024 bid cities will have representatives in Rio to promote their candidacies, including French President Francois Hollande and Italian Premier Matteo Renzi. Mayor Eric Garcetti heads the 24-member Los Angeles delegation to Rio.Until DeFrantz made it back to the executive board in 2013, the U.S. had been without a member at the top table since 2006. U.S. Olympic Committee chair Larry Probst joined the IOC as a regular member in 2013.The 36-year-old Ruggiero, a graduate of Harvard, joined the IOC in 2010 and has served as vice chair of the athletes commission since 2014. She also sits on the USOCs board of directors, and chaired the IOC coordination commission for the 2016 Winter Youth Games in Lillehammer. Moda Nike Air Max 97 . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Rosa . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. SEATTLE -- For the second time in a week, Cole Hamels got battered by the Seattle Mariners.Fortunately for Hamels, hes not likely to see Seattle again this season.Hamels lasted just 1 2/3 innings on Monday, giving up seven earned runs and homers to Robinson Cano and Franklin Gutierrez in Seattles 14-6 win over the Texas Rangers.The Mariners scored five runs in the first, then pulled away with a six-run sixth inning as Hamels watched from the bench long after he had been lifted. It was just the second time in his career that Hamels failed to pitch at least two innings. He lasted just two outs in a 2010 start with Philadelphia, and gave up six runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings last week against the Mariners in Texas.I understand what were trying to accomplish here and when youre not able to do it, especially twice in a row with the type of situations that Ive come out of the game with, theres probably more disappointment in the fact of not being able to give this team a chance to win, Hamels said.Hamels (14-5) had a similar pair of games earlier this year when he faced Minnesota twice in a week. Both times, Hamels couldnt get through five innings, giving up 15 hits and 10 earned runs combined in consecutive starts against the Twins. Those poor performances could be partly explained by Hamels dealing with a blister on his pitching hand.There is no physical issue with Hamels now, just two subpar performances in a row.He didnt get the quality of strike that he wanted to, Texas manager Jeff Banister said. I dont think it was a rhythm issue today, just more didnt get it on the edges where hed like to.Despite being staked to a 7-0 lead, Seattle starter Felix Hernandez (10-5) nearly gave it all away. Texas scored five times off Hernandez in the third inning, including a three-run homer by Nomar Mazara and RBI singles from Rougned Odor and Jonathan Lucroy. Hernandez threw 49 pitches in the inning, but managed to keep the lead. Hernandez made it through 5 2/3 innings and gave up six runs before being lifted.It was my fault. I got out of my game a little bit there, Hernandez said.Odor addeed a solo home run in the sixth inning -- his 30th of the season -- and has homered in five of the past six games. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Nere. Odor had two career hits off Hernandez entering the day.I talked to (Shin-Soo) Choo, I talked to (Adrian) Beltre and (Carlos) Beltran, and they gave me a couple tips, Odor said. I tried to do that and I hit pretty good today against him.RATTLING THE BATSCanos 32 homers this season are one off his career high set in 2012 while with the New York Yankees. The two-run shot also set the tone for Seattles largest offensive output since scoring 14 in a win over Toronto in late July. Gutierrez drove in four runs and Jesus Sucre tied a career high with three hits, including a two-run single to cap Seattles big first inning.The key at-bat was Kyle Seagers two-out walk in the first inning. Seager stole second base to get into scoring position and scored on Dae-Ho Lees base hit for an early 3-0 lead. Leonys Martin followed with a double, and Sucres soft liner scored a pair for a 5-0 lead.TRAINERS ROOM:Rangers: Banister said high stress innings -- multiple runners on, pitches in an inning -- are factored into pitching decisions. Thats one of the reasons Yu Darvish was pulled after a season-low four innings Sunday. Darvish allowed five runs on seven hits, throwing 80 pitches, but 33 were in a two-run first.Mariners: RHP Tom Wilhelmsen, on the 15-day DL with lower back spasms, is expected to throw a simulated game on Thursday. Thats the plan with him, see how that goes, manager Scott Servais said. Once he faces some hitters, well see where thats at.UP NEXTRangers: LHP Martin Perez (9-10) makes his career-high 29th start. He is 2-6 with a 5.73 ERA in his last 11 starts. Perez, who had Tommy John surgery in May 2014, already has pitched 169 2/3 innings this season. His high was 167 2/3 in 2013.Mariners: LHP James Paxton (4-5) was pushed back one day after tearing a fingernail in his last start, when he came out after five innings against Texas.
