Title: s play involving the head and neck.Engla
Blog Entry: PHILADELPHIA -- Zach Eflin stood on the mound shaking from excitement as the final pitch of the game was squeezed for the third out. Nicolas Meloche Jersey .Philadelphias rookie right-hander had breezed past the Atlanta Braves.I was just out there with loads of confidence, Eflin said.Eflin struck out six and walked none in his first career complete game and first major-league win, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-1 victory over the Braves on Tuesday night.Eflin, a first-round pick in the 2012 draft by the San Diego Padres, needed just 2 hours, 8 minutes to win for the first time this season in five starts.The less pitches the better, he said, smiling.Eflin, acquired in a 2014 trade that sent Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins to the Los Angeles Dodgers, allowed three homers and nine runs in 2 2/3 innings in his June 14 debut against Toronto.He lost his next start, then rebounded with no-decisions in two straight solid six-inning outings.Eflin certainly found his groove against Atlanta. He threw just 92 crisp pitches and breezed against the hapless Braves in his longest outing of the season in any level of baseball. He became the first Phillies pitcher since Mike Williams in July 1992 to toss a complete game for his first win and hes the first Phillies rookie to throw a complete game since Vance Worley in July 2011.Its something you cant really describe, just being around these guys, Eflin said.Eflin went deep in the game and the Phillies went deep at the plate.Maikel Franco homered for the third straight game, and the Phillies hit four overall. Peter Bourjos, Cody Asche and Tommy Joseph all hit solo shots for the Phillies.Eflin had some help from a generally punchless offense that has shown signs of coming around headed into the All-Star break. The Phillies have scored at least seven runs in three straight games and have won seven of eight overall.I think everybody puts together good at-bats and that puts pressure on the pitcher to make his pitches, Bourjos said. He threw some pitches over the plate and we hit some home runs.Simple enough.Bourjos extended his hitting streak to 14 games and opened the home run derby with his fourth of the season in the first inning against Mike Foltynewicz (2-3). Asche hit his fourth in the fourth and Franco (16) and Joseph (9) both went deep in the sixth.Foltynewicz struck out five and gave up eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.When I had two strikes, I got amped up a little and started to overthrow, he said.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Julio Teheran was scratched from Wednesdays start in the three-game series finale for Tyrell Jenkins. Teheran returned to Atlanta to be treated for an infection on his right thigh. The Braves are hopeful Teheran will start this weekend in a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox.Phillies: RHP Andrew Bailey is scheduled to start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. ... LHP Daniel Stumpf has had his rehab assignment transferred to Lehigh Valley.HOT STREAKBoujos is the first Phillie to hit in 14 straight games since Rollins had a 15-game streak in 2014. ... Franco is the first Phillie to homer in three straight games since Darin Ruf in 2013 and the first to have an RBI in five straight games since Ryan Howard in July 2015.ALL-STARSBraves: Teheran is just 3-7 but was named to the NL All-Star team for the second time. He was the lone Brave selected.Phillies: CF Odubel Herrera was the only Phillie named to the NL All-Star team. He entered ranked first in four-hit games with three and had two separate hitting streaks of at least 10 games.Herrera, batting .302, said through an interpreter he was proud to represent the Phillies and burst into laughter when he was good-naturedly asked about participating in the home run derby. He has 10 homers.UP NEXTJenkins (0-1, 5.79 ERA) goes against Phillies RHP Jeremy Hellickson (6-6, 4-06). Tyson Jost Avalanche Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Teemu Selanne Jersey . 1, meaning problems for the doping controls at both major international sports events next year. The World Anti-Doping Agency provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will be imposed. .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. Dylan Hartleys suitability to lead the British and Irish Lions has been questioned by Brian ODriscoll as the England captain waits to discover the damage caused to his career by yet another major disciplinary lapse.Hartley will learn in midweek the repercussions of the red card issued by referee Jerome Garces for a swinging arm on Sean OBrien in Northamptons Champions Cup defeat by Leinster at Franklins Gardens on Friday night.The hooker, a second-half replacement, had only been on the pitch for six minutes when he struck OBriens head from behind with his right arm, ending the concussed Ireland flankers evening.It is the third red card of his career and Garces decision was endorsed by Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder and captain Tom Wood.An appalling disciplinary record comprising of 54 weeks worth of suspensions for offences including biting, gouging and butting guarantees a bleak outcome when a independent hearing is convened next week - most likely on Wednesday - to impose a sanction.His participation in the early stages of the RBS 6 Nations is now in grave doubt and ODriscoll suggests his credentials to lead the Lions in New Zealand next summer - Hartley was a leading contender for the post - are in ruins.Mindlesss from Hartley. Semyon Varlamov Avalanche Jersey . Lions Captain???! tweeted ODriscoll, who skippered the tourists against the All Blacks 11 years ago.Anyone actually questioning the Hartley red card look at his reaction to it. Not a murmur of complaint from him. He knew what was coming.Hartley has led England with distinction this year, presiding over an unblemished run of 13 victories, but a season marred by a lengthy lay-off to heal a back injury now faces another interruption.It is unclear at this stage whether he will be punished for striking or for a dangerous tackle, with the former deemed a less serious offence but still carrying a top end sanction of eight plus weeks.The suspension will surely be extended when his extensive previous misdemeanours are considered and will be delivered against the backdrop of World Rugbys crackdown on dangerous play involving the head and neck.England head coach Eddie Jones, watching from the stands at Franklins Gardens, reacted to the replays by running his left hand down his face and the red card has left him with a headache ahead of the visit of France to Twickenham on February 4.
