top of the ninth to pull his team within one. A from miaowang123's blog

INDIANAPOLIS -- James Hinchcliffes tough IndyCar start is getting more clouded. Ronnie Harrison Jaguars Jersey . E.J. Viso replaced the injured Canadian on Sunday in the opening practice for the Indianapolis 500 and its still unclear when the popular Hinchcliffe will turn his first laps on the famed 2.5-mile oval. Hinchcliffe, from Oakville, Ont., was injured Saturday in the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis when debris from Justin Wilsons car flew into the cockpit, striking Hinchcliffe in the head. He was taken away from the track on a stretcher, transported to a hospital and diagnosed with a concussion. He was hoping to be re-examined Sunday, but that never happened and now hes out until at least Tuesday. "Well have a better feeling then," team owner Michael Andretti said. "They just said rest and they dont want to see him again until Tuesday." Later, the team issued a statement saying that exam date has been scheduled. Traditionally, IndyCar drivers with concussions have missed a minimum of seven days off before being cleared to race. But series officials issued a statement Sunday night, saying concussions are handled on a case-by-case basis and that drivers with head injuries must pass an ImPACT test before theyre cleared to compete by series medical director Dr. Michael Olinger. If Olinger adheres to the strict timeline, though, Hinchcliffe would miss the only full week of Indy practice and might not be back in the No. 27 Honda until next weekend when the only two qualifying sessions will be held. Andretti brought in Viso, who hadnt even been in an IndyCar this season until completing 28 laps Sunday. Even Viso isnt sure what to expect next. He finished sixth on the speed charts with a fast lap of 222.105 mph. Twenty-four cars made it onto the track. Australias Will Power, who drives for Roger Penske, was the fastest of the 24 cars at 223.057 mph. Viso said he is prepared to do whatever Andrettis team needs -- even if that means replacing Hinchcliffe for qualifying or in the May 25 race. "Its too early to know. It just happened yesterday and nobody knows how hes going to recover. It 100 per cent comes down to his recovery," the Venezuelan said. "First of all, I just wish James a quick recovery. If he takes a little bit longer and Im able to drive and do the job for him Im, of course, not disappointed with that. But for me, the most important thing is to understand that hes recovering fast." He has made six straight starts in the 500, including a career best fourth last year. Viso finished 18th in 2013, matching his best career finish at Indy. The team said Hinchcliffe did make a brief appearance at the track to meet with his crew and have lunch with his family. He also spoke briefly with Viso but did not take questions from reporters. For the popular Canadian driver, its already been a challenging season. He started second at Long Beach and Barber but has not finished higher than seventh in any of this seasons four races. He qualified 11th for Saturdays race, then wound up 20th after leaving with the head injury. In Hinchcliffes three previous IndyCar seasons, hes had 14 top-five finishes in 50 starts and won three races -- with all three coming last season. What everyone wants to know now is whether hell get a chance at a third straight top-nine qualifying run at Indianapolis? "He seems in good shape and hes going to recover fast," Viso said. Andretti Autosport has five cars, including NASCARs Kurt Busch, trying to qualify for the May 25 race. Ryan Hunter-Reay had the fastest car of the bunch, turning a lap of 222.134 on Sunday. Busch, who is trying to become the fourth driver to race 1,100 miles in one day, at Indianapolis and Charlotte, was 12th at 220.352. Logan Cooke Jaguars Jersey .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Will Richardson Jaguars Jersey . -- The taxing preseason, which included two games in China, is finally over.The Winnipeg Goldeyes would come up just short on Friday night in a closely fought match with the Kansas City T-Bones. Kansas City (30-30) topped the Goldeyes (37-23) by a score of 5-4 in front of 6,519 fans at CommunityAmerica Ballpark in Kansas City. The T-Bones took an early two run lead in the bottom of the first, as both lead-off batters got on base and would then come around to score. The Goldeyes would respond two innings later as Jordan Guida got on base on a single and was driven in by Casey Haerther. In the bottom of the same inning, Kansas City reestablished their two run lead. Former Goldeyes player Ray Sadler would drive in his second run of the game, after his teammate Danny Richar got on base on a walk. Guida would score another run in the top of the fifth to bring the Goldeyes back within one. He was driven in on an RBI single from Brock Bond. The Goldeyes would then tie the game in the eighth inning. Casey Haerther got on base on a single and after advancing on a hit from Jaake Blackwood and a sac bunt from Donnie Webb, he would be driven in by Josh Mazzola. Jaguars Jerseys. . Answering back in the bottom of the eighth, the T-Bones would load the bases and score two. The Goldeyes wouldnt go quietly, Tyler Kuhn hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to pull his team within one. And after Brock Bond got on base on a single and then advanced to second on a wild pitch, the Goldeyes were a hit away from tying the game back up. T-Bones pitcher Kris Regas would shut the rally down though as he struck out Mazzola and got Blackwood to ground out to end the game. Regas would earn the win for Kansas City, and Kaohi Downing — who came on in relief of Winnipegs starter Chandler Barnard — was charged with the loss. The Goldeyes and T-Bones will meet again on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. The Goldeyes will send Chris Salamida (3-3) to the mound to face Kansas Citys Rick Zagone (6-2). The two teams will then wrap up the weekend series on Sunday at 1 p.m. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Bills JerseysCheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Lions Jerseys Cheap Packers JerseysCheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys ' ' '
