A look at whats happening all around the majors Thursday:---STRASBURG VS. Xavier Woods Jersey . URIASOne phenom faces another when Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg (13-0, 2.51) takes on young Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias (1-2, 4.95). Strasburg, the first overall pick in the 2009 draft, has emerged as an NL Cy Young Award candidate, especially with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw battling an injury. Urias is just 19 but could compete for Cy Youngs in the future. For now, hes trying to rebound from a rough start against AL East-leading Baltimore in his last start.FLU BIRDSThe Orioles are limping into getaway day at the end of their four-game series against the Yankees. First baseman Chris Davis missed his third straight game Wednesday because of flu-like symptoms, and manager Buck Showalter and third baseman Manny Machado also missed Wednesday with similar symptoms. The Os could also be without catcher Matt Wieters again -- he was out of the lineup for a second straight game Wednesday after being hit by a pitch in the right foot Monday.HELP WANTED?The Red Sox need to find yet another closer after Koji Uehara went on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a right pectoral strain. Uehara was filling in for injured closer Craig Kimbrel, and now team president Dave Dombrowski may have to plug another hole before the Aug. 1 deadline. Knuckleballer Steven Wright (11-5, 2.78) pitches the opener of a four-game series against Minnesota, which counters with right-hander Tyler Duffey (5-6, 5.23).SONNY SIDE UPAthletics right-hander Sonny Gray (4-8, 5.12) snapped a career-worst seven-game losing streak in his most recent start and will hope to build on that momentum against the Tampa Bay Rays. Gray is 2-1 with a 3.11 ERA in six career starts against the Rays and 2-2 with a 7.01 ERA in five starts against the Eastern Division this year. Tampa Bay counters with Matt Moore (5-7, 4.33), who may be auditioning to be traded to a contender before the Aug. 1 deadline. Xavier Woods Youth Jersey . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. Taco Charlton Jersey .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. Jared Tallent desperately wanted to be an Olympic champion for more than a couple of months.But if he had to come up just short in his 50km walk title defence, this was a much better sort of second.So often in the past, Tallent has been edged out for top spot at major walking races by athletes he knew were cheats.The outspoken Australian anti-doping campaigner only received the 50km gold medal from the 2012 London Olympics in June this year after Russian Sergey Kirdyapkin was finally stripped of the title for a drug offence.Tallent looked set to get his deserved moment in the sun in Rio on Friday when he hit the front at the 40km mark, only for his legs to go with just two of the 25 laps remaining.One lap later and he was mowed down by reigning world champion Matej Toth, who motored away to claim the gold in three hours 40 minutes and 58 seconds.It was Slovakias first summer Olympics gold medal in any sport other than canoe slalom.A flagging Tallent hung tough to grab the silver in 3:41:16.Hirooki Arai from Japan crossed the line in third spot but was later disqualified, handing the bronze medal to Tallents training partner Evan Dunfee from Canada.I really wanted it and I thought I had it, said Tallent.I probablly got a bit too excited. Chidobe Awuzie Womens Jersey. I was feeling really good, I was patient all throughout the race and just when I needed to be a little more patient I went for it at the 40km mark.... I gave it everything.It would have meant so much to have held on and got the gold here.Tallent paid tribute to gold medallist Toth and the other contenders.I didnt have to worry about any cheats in the race who were going to spoil the party for all the clean athletes, he said.It will be great to have a clean podium again and Ill be proud to stand up there with those other blokes.Its very different to London.There are no suspicions this time around.A sore hamstring prompted Tallent to withdraw from the 20km race earlier in the Games.The 32-year-old is the first Australian male track and field athlete to win four Olympic medals.Fellow Australian Chris Erickson set a PB of 3:48:40 to finish ninth and Brendon Reading was 39th on his Olympic debut.World record holder Yohann Diniz set the early pace, only to collapse at the 35km mark.The Frenchman got up to finish seventh, almost six minutes off the pace. 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 ' ' '
