    ANAHEIM, Calif. Matthew Adams Jersey . -- Matt Shoemaker once joked about a curse that plagued him every five days. It appears as though the curse has been lifted.Shoemaker scattered six hits and struck out a career-high 13 in his first complete game in the majors, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 1-0 on Saturday night.Matty has talked about trying to get over that hump and trying to get outs late in the game to close out, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Certain times this year he hasnt been able to close the door. Tonight he did.James Shields threw a two-hitter but was outdueled by Shoemaker, who walked none. Shoemaker (5-9) has allowed only four earned runs in his last five home starts.Adam Eaton doubled to lead off the ninth and Melky Cabrera singled with one out to put runners on the corners. Shoemaker hoped for a double-play ball with Todd Frazier at the plate but couldnt get it. Instead, he struck out Frazier and Justin Morneau to end the game.Just trying to execute a really good pitch, Shoemaker said. Strikeouts are good, but in that situation a double play is the best-case scenario.Shields (4-11) allowed a leadoff triple to Yunel Escobar in the first inning but wouldnt allow another hit until the eighth. He walked two, struck out two and threw just 91 pitches.For the most part, I was pounding the strike zone, Shields said. I got behind the count in a few innings and then got myself back into it, got some ground balls. Me and (catcher Dioner Navarro) were on the same page rhythm-wise and it was good.Mike Trout drove in Escobar with a groundout in the first. It was the second straight game and the second time this season the Angels have won without Trout or Albert Pujols hitting safely.Theres not very many times that the leadoff hitter decides the game, Shields said. Its a tough loss right there. We need to win these games, theres no doubt about it, but we need to move on.Chicago has now been held scoreless in its last three games and hasnt scored since July 9 against the Atlanta Braves.White Sox manager Robin Ventura said the frustration is visible and its starting to wear on hitters. However, Ventura isnt worried that it will become a long-term problem.You wear it if its just one game, let alone three, Ventura said. Weve got to figure it out and well get there.The Angels won the three-game series with the victory and the White Sox have won just one series against Los Angeles since 2010.The White Sox optioned infielder Carlos Sanchez to Triple-A Charlotte following the game. A corresponding roster move will be announced Sunday.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon played catch from 60 feet on Saturday. Rodon said hed like to return within the next week but is still unsure of his timeline and Ventura said he would likely need a rehab start. The White Sox placed Rodon on the 15-day disabled list on July 10 with a sprained left wrist.UP NEXTWhite Sox: RHP Jacob Turner will make his first major league start since 2014 on Sunday when hes recalled to take Rodons spot in the rotation. Turner missed most of 2015 with elbow issues and has gone 4-7 with a 4.71 ERA in 18 starts for Triple-A Charlotte.Angels: RHP Jered Weaver looks to continue his career dominance of the White Sox in Sundays series finale. Weaver is 11-2 with 1.94 ERA in 14 career starts against Chicago and 7-0 since 2011 Quincy Wilson Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Grover Stewart Jersey . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. . "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.TEMPE, Ariz. -- First and foremost, Bruce Arians coaches the offence, even though hes got the whole team to worry about as new head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. And that offence was the target of his criticism as the team resumed OTAs on Tuesday. "Were just not picking it up fast enough," he said. "Were still not picking it up the way Id like to -- at all positions." Arians singled out the receivers. "I dont like mistakes. I really dont like mental mistakes," Arians said, "especially if you made the same mistake last week. That should be corrected and in the books by now, and our receivers are not getting that done." Even the supremely consistent Larry Fitzgerald dropped a sidelines catch he makes 99 per cent or more of the time. Arians shouldnt be too surprised about the offences struggles. After all, he inherits a team that ranked dead last in the NFL on offence last season, bringing an end to Ken Whisenhunts days as head coach. Arians and new general manager Steve Keim have overseen a massive roster overhaul, most notably bringing in Carson Palmer as quarterback. He also brought in running back Rashard Mendenhall and drafted North Carolinas Jonathan Cooper with the seventh overall pick, already sliding him in at left guard and moving veteran guard Daryn Colledge to the right side. He also has a beefed up coaching staff, with 21 coaches, up from Whisenhunts 17. Thats allowed Arians to divide the OTAs into two 45-man groups to go through workouts simultaneously. "Ive always thought that small classrooms make for better success in teaching," he said. "The more eyes on the linemen especially, the offensive linemen and outside backers and tight ends, the more hands-on coaches the better improvement of the player, on the field and in the classroom." Running back Ryan Williams, whose two NFL seasons havve been decimated by injuries, offered a candid assessment of Arians approach, particularly when it comes to discipline. Pat McAfee Jersey. "Everybodys accountable, thats the No. 1 thing," he said. "Its a respect thing. We used to have egotistical guys who felt like they couldnt be touched and be able to do whatever they wanted to. So having guys like coach Bruce is able to nip that ASAP and were able to have a good, quality practice and sometimes that wasnt able to happen because some guys were just doing whatever they wanted to do." Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is thrilled with the coaching change and the move to a defensive system that allows him to make more plays rather than simply take on blockers to clear the way for linebackers to get the glory. "This is one of the most energetic head coaches Ive ever been around, and Im not just saying that," Dockett said. "Hes very intense on everything and hes straightforward, too." He talked about liking to heckle Palmer from the other side of the ball, but he called the new quarterback "a great leader for us." "I see him sometimes on the sideline, coaching the receivers and talking to the offensive line," Dockett said. "What a big difference from that position last year. Right now I think hes more respected and a lot of guys are willing to go that extra yard for him. Hes a tough quarterback and hes going to hang in there for us." NOTES: Arians said tight end Jeff King underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and hopes to begin working out in the next set of OTAs in two weeks. ... The OTA sessions Wednesday and Thursday are closed to the media. ... Arizona signed rookie free agent WR Charles Hawkins from Southern and waived-injured WR Javone Lawson (Achilles). Stump Mitchell, Hawkins head coach at Southern, is the Cardinals running backs coach. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
