Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork. Phil Housley Jersey .com) - The Oakland Athletics acquired first baseman Ike Davis from the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, three days after he was designated for assignment. The teams swapped international bonus slots as part of the deal, with the Pirates gaining the No. 27 slot and the As landing slot No. 86 from Pittsburgh. Davis finished fifth in the National League with 32 home runs while with the New York Mets in 2012 and spent the majority of last season as Pittsburghs regular first baseman. The 27-year-old hit just .233 with 11 homers and 51 RBI in 143 games between the Pirates and Mets in 2014, however. Over five major league seasons, Davis owns a .240 average with 78 homers and 270 RBI. To create room for Davis on the 40-man roster, Oakland designated outfielder Andrew Brown for assignment. Brown spent most of last season with the Mets Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas (PCL), batting .283 with 21 homers and 69 RBI in 103 games. The 30-year- old was claimed off waivers from New York by the As on Oct. 31. Craig Rivet Jersey . Englands only win in the four most recent trips north had been tight, and Scotland was expected after losing 28-6 to Ireland six days ago to show some venom against its archrival. Henri Jokiharju Jersey . The 20-year-old Inoue landed a series of combinations and the bout was stopped 2 minutes, 54 seconds into the sixth round. Inoue, the first Japanese boxer to claim a world title in just his sixth professional fight, improved to 6-0 with five knockouts. https://www.cheapsabres.com/233v-gilbert-perreault-jersey-jersey-sabres.html . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats are getting used to big nights from Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker. Now, they have Gary Neal to throw into the offensive mix. The newly acquired Neal came off the bench and scored 19 points as the surging Bobcats won their seventh home game in a row, defeating the Denver Nuggets 105-98 on Monday night. Jefferson led all scorers with 26 points and Walker scored 24, but it was Neals work off the bench that may have made the biggest difference with Gerald Henderson out with a strained right calf muscle. "It was a huge to get a win at home and protect our homecourt, especially with the standings the way they are," said Neal, who was playing in his only his seventh game with the team since coming over from Milwaukee in a trade on Feb. 20. "I felt good in the (Monday) morning shootaround and had a good individual workout before the game," Neal added. "Then, the first couple shots fell and I got in a good rhythm." Neal actually made his first six field-goal tries as the Bobcats, currently in position to grab the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference for the playoffs, improved to 30-34. Three of those baskets by Neal were 3-pointers. The Nuggets, who fell to 27-36, were led by Ty Lawsons 24 points -- 15 of which came in the fourth quarter as he tried to rally his team. "They were without Gerald Henderson and Gary Neal stepped in and did what he needed to do," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "We have to learn to respect everyone, whether hes a starter or coming off the bench." Jefferson made 10 of his first 14 field-goal attempts, and also contributed a game-high 13 rebounds. Walker added seven assists for the Bobcats. Jefferson scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the first quarter, after which the Bobcats led 25-22. But they actually extended their lead to 12 in the second quarter, as Neal scored nine points. "That boy can score. He made plays, thats all," Jefferson said of Neal. "If he can play like that, its going to give a big lift to the second unit. With him hitting 3s like that, thatts just going to open up the paint for guys like me who like to attack it. Rasmus Dahlin Jersey. " Josh McRoberts added 15 points for Charlotte, including a key 3-pointer with 6:15 left at the shot-clock buzzer to extend Charlottes lead to 90-82 after Denver had cut it to five. Denver also got 15 points from Kenneth Faried, 16 from Aaron Brooks, and 11 points and a team-high 10 rebounds from J.J. Hickson. After Faried led a brief Denver comeback to cut Charlottes lead to 51-45 at the half, Walker and Jefferson hit the first two baskets of the third quarter to push the Charlotte advantage back to 10 and the home team never trailed in the second half. Denver did pull to within 101-96 in the final minute, but Walker, who made all 12 of his free-throw attempts on the night, hit a pair with 55.6 seconds left and then Jefferson hit a jumper after a defensive stop to seal the Bobcats victory. "We hung in there and fought hard," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "It wasnt our best game. We made a lot of mistakes in the fourth quarter. But its a good win and an important win for our team." Clifford said Neal, who has now scored in double figures in six of the seven games hes played for the Bobcats, is providing the kind of instant offence that he had hoped for when Neal was acquired from the Bucks along with backup point guard Luke Ridnour. "He played great," Clifford said. "Forget the 7-for-9 (field-goal shooting). He made two big plays out of the pick-and-roll when we were struggling. They blitzed Kemba and Gary Neal hit CDR (Chris Douglas-Roberts) for a big 3 and he started the ball movement on another pick-and-roll that led to a Kemba jumper. Hes the one who kind of got our offence back on track." NOTES: Clifford said Henderson, who missed Mondays game and has been out a week with a strained right calf muscle, might attempt running during Tuesdays practice. He hopes Henderson will be available to resume playing in games soon. Clifford said that likely wont occur until next week, however. ... The Bobcats have 18 home wins, three more than all of last year. ' ' '
