In the short term, this isnt hard to figure out: The World Series advanced to a seventh game, played between the two teams with the longest championship droughts in existence. New Balance Shoes Online Australia . Theres no question how the playoffs will be remembered, for a little while. Some kind of storybook ending was inevitable. That much was clear before the World Series even began. And fans will remember the playoffs in their own way.Yet the baseball industry could also be said to have a memory, one that has a tendency to respond to recent trends. Baseball itself is likely to remember these playoffs for what happened with the relievers -- and the trends we saw are unlikely to reverse in October tournaments down the road.Heres an easy place to start off. Ive selected as my data window the wild-card era, stretching back to 1995. In the playoff years since then, how much have starters and relievers been used? This plot has what you need to know:The lines bounce around, and none of the differences are?huge. But, overall, starters have averaged 63 percent of the innings. This year, they wound up at 57 percent. They were that low before only once, in 2004, a year that playoff starters had an ERA over 5.00. This years playoff starters had an ERA under 4.00. So they pitched less, even though they were reasonably effective.Cheap New Balance Shoes Online Australia . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. New Balance Clearance Australia .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. http://www.cheapaustralianewbalance.com/ .

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico -- Gary Woodland birdied three of the final four holes Friday for a 6-under 65 and a one-stroke lead in the PGA Tours OHL Classic at Mayakoba.Woodland played the first 36 holes without a bogey, following an opening 64 to get to 13-under 129 on Mayakobas Greg Norman-designed El Camaleon course. He won the last of his two tour titles in 2013.I havent been here since my rookie year, so its been since 2009, Woodland said. The golf course is in great shape. It sets up good for me. I can hit a lot of irons off the tees, lay back a little bit. The whole deal is to keep the ball in the fairway and then attack from there.Married last month, Woodland took last week off and worked with instructor Butch Harmon after opening the new season in Malaysia and China.It was nice to have an off week last week, Woodland said. Went out and spent some time with Butch. After the wedding, kind of got a little rusty. Took some time off, but nice to get back in the swing of things. Very comfortable with where Im at right now.Webb Simpson was second after his second straight 65.Today was a lot different from yesterday, Simpson said. Today was a bit of a struggle with some distance control. I had to chip a lot more today, so today was about scoring. I was able to score, made some putts when I needed to for par. Yesterday, I dont remember missing any greens, and today I missed quite a few, so very differentt day, but same score. Cheap New Balance Shoes Australia. Scott Piercy had a 66 to reach 11 under. He tied for third in the season opener at Silverado.Just kind of plodding along and trying to pick up birdies where I can and kind of keep the scorecard pretty clean, Piercy said. Felt pretty good. Just trying to pick up some marbles on the way and count them at the end of the week and see where we fall.First-round leader Chris Kirk followed his opening 63 with a 70 to drop into a tie for fourth at 9 under with local favorite Abraham Ancer (68), Russell Knox (65), Charles Howell III (64), Ben Martin (64), John Huh (66) and Adam Hadwin (66).Marc Leishman eagled the par-5 seventh and followed with a hole-in-one on the 134-yard eighth, hitting a sand wedge for 134 yards. The Australian was 7 under after a 65.One-hopped past it and spun back into the hole, Leishman said. Same thing on 8. High sand wedge and landed about a yard past it and zipped back into the hole. It was first hole-in-one Ive had on tour. Ive had quite a few others just in practice rounds and that, but thats always nice to see it drop in.Defending champion Graeme McDowell rallied to make the cut by a stroke, following an opening 75 with a 65 to get to 2 under.Jim Furyk missed the cut, shooting 74-70 in his first event of the new season.
