ANAHEIM, Calif. Nike Air Max 97 . -- Despite going in opposite directions this year, the Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels share one thing in common: injuries that wreak havoc with both teams rotations.Four of the Angels projected starters from spring training are out for the season. Two, Andrew Heaney and Nick Tropeano, have undergone Tommy John surgery and will miss all of next year. A third, C.J. Wilson, has not pitched since July 2015 because of elbow and shoulder surgery. As a result, Los Angeles had to fill the rotation with reclamation projects, and is heading for its worst season in Mike Scioscias 17-year tenure as manager.The Mariners face a similar problem as they prepare to meet the Angels on Wednesday night in the third installment of their four-game series.Left-hander James Paxton, scratched from his start Tuesday night, went on the disabled list with a bruised left elbow. Paxton was hit in the elbow by a line drive in his last start Aug. 7. With right-hander Nathan Karns also on the disabled list because of a strained lower back and right-hander Taijuan Walker pitching at Triple-A Tacoma after fighting tendinitis in his right foot all season, manager Scott Servais must scramble for replacements.Its challenging, Servais told the Seattle Times. Teams have done it before. You are trying to plug guys in there to keep you in games and suck up innings. Fortunately for us, our bullpen has been very good lately. So if we can get to those guys in the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth inning, we are in pretty good shape.Right-hander Cody Martin, recalled Tuesday from Tacoma, will start Wednesday night after left-hander Ariel Miranda made his second start of the season Tuesday night as Paxtons replacement. Martin will the 13th starting pitcher that the Mariners have used this year.Meanwhile, left-hander Tyler Skaggs seeks to recover from his worst start in more than two years when he takes the mound for the Angels. Skaggs gave up seven runs and 10 hits in five innings Friday night during the Cleveland Indians 13-3 rout, which included seven stolen bases while Skaggs was on the mound and eight for the game.On May 4, 2014, Skaggs allowed six runs and eight hits in just 2 2/3 innings of a 14-3 loss to the Texas Rangers.After Friday nights game, Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez told reporters through a translator that his teammates could use Skaggs delivery to decipher his pickoff move easily. When a reporter asked outfielder Rajai Davis whether Skaggs was tipping his move, Davis winked. Davis and Ramirez each had three steals.Hopefully, this will be a bump in the road 10 years from now, when hes hopefully still pitching, Angels manager Mike Scioscia told the Los Angeles Times. Tylers stuff is there. Hes competing well and his confidence has grown.That start was Skaggs fourth since returning from Tommy John surgery, which caused him to miss a season and a half. The left-hander had compiled a streak of 18 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings between his final start of 2014 and his Aug. 6 appearance against the Mariners.

Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota has quite the 1-2-3 punch in its running game this season.The Gophers hit Colorado State with two of them all afternoon and completed nonconference play unbeaten.Rodney Smith rushed 17 times for 99 yards and two touchdowns and Shannon Brooks returned from injury to net 85 yards and a score on 13 carries, helping Minnesota wear down the Rams on the way to a 31-24 victory on Saturday.Theyre both awfully good, coach Tracy Claeys said of his sophomore tailback tandem, so it doesnt matter which way it ends up.Brooks, the teams leading rusher last season, missed the first two games because of a broken foot. Kobe McCrary, who piled up 176 yards rushing two weeks ago against Indiana State, rushed for 13 yards on four carries.They had fresh legs coming in all the time, Rams safety Jake Schlager said, adding, They definitely used it to their advantage.Factor in quarterback Mitch Leidner, who took off 10 times for 50 yards and a touchdown, and the Gophers (3-0) have their running game going just the way they want it entering Big Ten play.Leidner is looking as spry as ever after suffering foot injuries in each of the last two Septembers that hampered his sophomore and junior years. He made some cuts and jukes for extra yardage that made Brooks and Smith proud.Ive never been healthy coming out of the nonconference so it feels really good, said Leidner, who completed 16 of 20 passes for 174 yards .Freshman Collin Hill, making his second start at quarterback for the Rams (2-2), cut Colorado States deficit to seven points with a 15-yard toss to Michael Gallup with 6:24 remaining. The Gophers followed with a three-and-out, but Hills fourth-down pass at the Minnesota 45 around the 2-minute mark was broken up by Adekunle Ayinde to quash the comeback.The Rams, who started three different quarterbacks over the first three games, have come a long way since a 44-7 loss to Colorado in their opener.I believe were close to becoming a pretty good football team, coach Mike Bobo said.Leidners underthrow toward the sideline was intercepted nnear midfield by Braylin Scott in the final minute of the first half, but Wyatt Bryan missed a 46-yard field goal as the clock expired to preserve a 17-7 lead for the Gophers. Air Max 97 Silver Bullet For Sale. THE TAKEAWAYMinnesota: The Gophers were far from flawless, particularly on defense while giving up 11 gains of 15-plus yards, but they did precisely what they needed to do by entering conference play unscathed.Colorado State: Hill finished 15 for 30 for 182 yards and one touchdown with an interception and a fumble that led to 14 points for Minnesota, after a sharp debut against FCS foe Northern Colorado. The experience playing at a Big Ten stadium ought to help his development.FINISHING STRONGEmmit Carpenter, who has not missed a kick this season, made a 28-yard field goal in the second quarter. Thats the only time in 14 trips inside the 20-yard line the Gophers havent crossed the goal line.Once you get down there, its tough to stop Rodney, Shannon and Kobe, Leidner said. Thats a lot of horsepower coming at you.FEELING THE PRESSURESteven Richardson, who had four of Minnesotas 14 tackles for loss, sacked Hill on the first play from scrimmage. Hill absorbed several hard hits on the afternoon, none more jarring than the sack by Taiyon Devers that knocked the ball loose and his helmet off to give the Gophers possession at the Colorado State 33.Devers, one of four true freshmen who played on defense, has forced a fumble on all three of his sacks just 2 1/2 games into his college career.Collin hadnt played any speed like that, Bobo said.UP NEXTColorado State: The Rams host Wyoming in their Mountain West opener for the Bronze Boot, the trophy that has gone to CSU for three straight years. This game is the only trip for the Rams outside of Colorado for the first six weeks of the season.Minnesota: The Gophers play their first Big Ten game at Penn State. Minnesota is 2-4 there all time, having last visited in 2009 and last won in 2003.
