rd at home.Their power-laden lineup leads the big leagues with 89 homers at home, including 31 by Mark Trumbo -- who tallied 22 Antworten

BALTIMORE -- For the Baltimore Orioles, home is where the victories are.Coming off another series win at Camden Yards, this time over the AL West-leading Texas Rangers, the Orioles boast a major-league best 39-17 record at home.Their power-laden lineup leads the big leagues with 89 homers at home, including 31 by Mark Trumbo -- who tallied 22 all last season with Arizona and Seattle.Theyre built to play in this ballpark, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. Youve got some guys who hit fly balls, who hit it out of the ballpark. They dont hit too many ground balls.Most teams play better at home. However, the Orioles have taken it to a higher level. Theyre 13-2-3 in 18 series at Camden Yards compared to 8-10 on the road.They seem like they really enjoy playing in their own ballpark, Banister said.It begins with the pleasure of sleeping in a familiar bed, then driving the usual route before walking into a cozy, spacious clubhouse.Maybe its just a comfort level, shortstop J.J. Hardy said.The Camden Yards experience includes the loud O! (for Orioles) screamed by the crowd when the national anthem reaches the point, OH, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave.Thats when the visitors know theyre in a hostile environment.Think about the unity their fans have when they yell, `O! Its a tradition you learn by coming to the ballpark, Rangers outfielder Ian Desmond said. That comes with time. Its part of home-field advantage.A young rookie thats never been here before playing the Orioles, hes standing out there for the national anthem and hes like, `Whoa, what was that? Its like, theyre ready. Theyre on-point today.They dont sell out the place every night anymore, but Camden Yards remains a mecca for baseball enthusiasts with deep ties to the hometown team.Ill give the fans a lot of the credit, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said.Desmond was far more adamant about the role played by the boisterous backers in orange and black.The Orioles are an old organization that has fans that understand the game. They know when to cheer. They get it. Players feed on that, he said. Home-field advantage is like a bond between the players and the fans.Baltimore stands atop the AL East because of its success at home. But if the Orioles are to remain in the playoff hunt they will likely have to improve on the road, where they were 22-29 through Thursday.The team was to begin a 10-game road swing Friday, facing the White Sox, Oakland and San Francisco.I look at it as, we havent been good on the road so hopefully thats due to turn around on this trip, Wieters said. At the end, if you win 93 games and its 81 at home and 12 on the road, it doesnt matter. Its just about getting to that number you need to make the playoffs, and then getting hot at home or away.The way theyve been playing at Camden Yards, the Orioles would like nothing more than to secure home-field advantage throughout the postseason.Its huge, Wieters said. In the playoffs, its all about momentum, and if you can get the crowd behind you it can influence the game by a couple of runs. China Jerseys Online . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead.

Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. Jerseys Cheap .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. HOUSTON -- When No. 25 LSU and No. 22 Texas A&M meet in the only college football game on Thanksgiving day, both teams will be looking to cap the regular-season on a positive note after disappointing and inconsistent years.With eight wins, a victory by the Aggies could help them nab a prestigious New Years Day bowl game.Our guys are aware of it, coach Kevin Sumlin said. Without a doubt we still have opportunity to win double-digit games. Very few teams have that. Thats what most important. In order to do that cant look past Thursdays and say that. Focus still remains on Thursday and trying to be 1-0 this week.A win by the Tigers (6-4) could help interim coach Ed Orgeron keep the job full time. LSUs players have been clear about their support for Orgeron, who took over when Les Miles was fired in September.This Thursday, obviously there will be a lot of different motivations and I dont think itll be hard to be motivated for this game because you want to get the bitter taste of a loss out of your mouth, fullback J.D. Moore said. You want to play for coach O whos willing to take the whole blame of an entire team on his shoulders even when it may not be entirely his fault. So its easy to play for a guy like that.Texas A&M will look for another big game from defensive end Myles Garrett , who had a career-high 4 1/2 sacks last week against UTSA. It was the first game Garrett has been healthy after struggling with an ankle injury for several weeks.LSU quarterback Danny Etling knows hell have to watch out for Garrett, who is predicted to be one of the top picks in the draft if he declares.Hes one of those players who is a special talent, Etling said. They have a good defense as a whole but hes obviously what stands out on film and has made a lot of plays. They use him to kind of disrupt some plays in the passing game and hes a good pass rusher.But in the running game I think hes shown that he can play on all those different downs ... hes kind of an all-down defensive lineman who can make a lot of plays for them all over the field, he said.Some things to know about the LSU-Texas A&M game:FOURNETTES STATUSLSU star running back Leonard Fournette has an ankle injury that may keep him out of Thursdays game. Fournette hass been slowed by the injury for much of the season and Orgeron said earlier this week that he was day to day and that he was very sore.dddddddddddd Orgeron said it has been tough not being able to have him at full strength for the majority of the season.It was something we had to deal with, Orgeron said. We won three games without him being there. He came in and had a great game against Ole Miss. Wed love for him to be healthy.CLOSING IN ON 1,000Texas A&M RB Trayveon Williams needs 44 yards rushing to become the first true freshman in school history to rush for 1,000 yards. Williams had 80 yards rushing last week and has had three games over 100 yards rushing, including a season-high 217 yards rushing in a win over Tennessee.IN THE MIDDLELSUs defense took a considerable hit when senior starting middle linebacker Kendell Beckwith went out with an apparent left knee injury against Florida. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Beckwith, a clear-cut NFL prospect., has been LSUs leading tackler with 91 tackles, including six tackles for losses, a sack and fumble recovery. He was also the leader of the front seven, if not the whole defense. While Orgeron downplayed the long-term seriousness of Beckwiths injury, he ruled him out against A&M. Donnie Alexander, a junior from New Orleans and former Edna Karr high school teammate of Aggies receiver Speedy Noil, is slated to make his first start for Beckwith.FOCUSED ON FINISHINGAlthough LSU only scored 10 points last weekend against Florida, it wasnt because they couldnt move the ball. The Tigers racked up 423 yards, outgaining the Gators by 153 yards. Etling was 14 of 26 for 204 yards without an interception. If not for their failure to get more than a field goal out of their last four times inside the Florida 10-yard line because of a fumble, botched field goal and gal line stand, the Tigers might have won last weekend.We put up a lot of yards, we executed our game plan and unfortunately we shot ourselves in the foot when we needed some big plays and especially inside the red zone, Etling said.---AP Sports Writer Brett Martel contributed to this report.
