    Not on my watch. Scott Kazmir Jersey .Memories of a divided Australias disastrous 1985 tour of New Zealand have inspired Mal Meninga to stop any State of Origin bad blood spilling over to the Kangaroos.National coach Meninga said he was not concerned by Queensland veteran Corey Parkers claim that tensions between the State of Origin teams were at an all-time high ahead of the end-of-year Four Nations campaign in the UK.But Meninga vowed to stamp out any interstate issues in the Kangaroos camp after enduring a fractured Kangaroos trip across the ditch 31 years ago.Back then Terry Fearnley held both the Kangaroos and NSW reins, ensuring plenty of interstate friction - especially after the Blues had won their first Origin series in 1985.Fearnley copped plenty of criticism after appearing to prefer NSW players over Maroons across the ditch, culminating in a humiliating 18-0 third Test loss to the Kiwis in Auckland.The unofficial Terry Fearnley rule has all but ensured coaches have not held both state and national reins since in Australia.Asked if he feared a repeat of the 1985 debacle, Meninga said: That was driven by the leadership group.It wasnt driven by the players.I am the leader of this Test team and it will not happen, simple as that.I can assure you players will want to put their hand up for the Four Nations and who wouldnt want to be involved in the World Cup?Queensland were seething over NSW skipper Paul Gallen turning his back on Maroons skipper Cameron Smith lifting the Origin trophy and leading the Blues away after last weeks game three in Sydney.Meninga not only has to unite his Kangaroos team ahead of the end-of-year Four Nations in the UK but also next years World Cup which was launched in Brisbane on Tuesday.But Meninga - a veteran of 32 games for Queensland before a decade-long stint as Maroons coach - could not see a problem.Origin is about passion, thats what makes it so special, he said.Players will move on. I dont anticipate any problems whatsoever.He refuted Parkers claim that Origin hatred had reached another level this year.I dont think so - its as per normal, he said.Its part of the banter and theatre of Origin - there wont be any issues.Kangaroos captain Smith reckoned anyone who couldnt get over their Origin issues shouldnt be picked for Australia.Anyone that struggles with getting a call up to play for Australia and leaving that stuff at the door shouldnt play, he said. Tyler Flowers Jersey . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. Custom Atlanta Braves Jerseys . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. LOS ANGELES -- David Ortiz made two nice catches in a rare start at first base. Oddly enough, he just couldnt help spark the Boston Red Sox at the plate.Ortiz was hitless in three at-bats, Ross Stripling and three relievers combined on a five-hitter and the Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Saturday.Boston is 5-5 on this road trip.We couldnt get anything going offensively, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. This trip has seen games where weve scuffled to not only get a runner in scoring position and get a base hit in that situation, but to string any kind of base hits together, and that was the story line here today.This was Ortizs first start at first base this season. Asked if this loss might keep him from playing the field in the future, Ortiz laughed.Future? What future? The future is right now, he said. Theres no more future, buddy. Have you read the newspaper. Im not playing no more after this season.Since June 24, 2005, the Red Sox had won 40 of 54 interleague games with Ortiz starting at first. The Red Sox had a 47-23 record at NL parks since 2003 with Ortiz at first, compared to 26-29 without him starting at the position.The first ball hit by the Dodgers was a soft liner by Howie Kendrick that forced Ortiz to move to his right for a lunging catch. Ortiz also made a diving grab of Josh Reddicks liner to end the fifth with runners on first and third.Good hands never leave you. Remember that, he said.Yeah, he made two outstanding plays, said Farrell. Its somewhat ironic that he hasnt been on the field in nearly a year, and the first ball that is put in play is a snare of a line drive on his part.Ortiz was replaced by Aaron Hill in the sixth inning.I just didnt want to go three days without playing, but Im okay, Ortiz said. I just got a little sore.Prior to the game, Farrell said he was considering shuffling the Red Sox batting order, including moving Mookie Betts into the No. 3 spot.I dont know. Never done it. I cant say that Ive ever done it in my life, Betts said when asked about possibly batting third. Im sure its going to be something different, but its still another at-bat.Newly promoted Stripling and the Dodgers bullpen combined on a five-hitter, and Adrian Gonzalez got three hits and drove in a run as Los Angeles reboounded from a 9-0 loss to Boston on Friday night. Danny Santana Jersey. .Stripling (3-3) pitched five innings after being called up from the minors when pitcher Bud Norris was put on the disabled list. Making his first start for the Dodgers since May 19, he gave up hits to the first two Boston batters.He was just mixing his pitches, throwing them all for strikes, said Betts, who had two hits. He has a high arm slot, so its kind of hard to pick up. He has a good fastball. It kind of rides through.Eduardo Rodriguez (2-5) gave up three runs and eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.Corey Seager set the Dodgers rookie record with his 31st double of the season, an RBI hit that made it 2-0 in the fifth. He had been tied with Eric Karros (1992).A.J. Ellis got his first RBI since June 27 with a two-out single in the second.DISH DECISIONThe Red Sox may put newly acquired C Bryan Holaday behind the plate Sunday, Farrell said. Holaday was a teammate of Sunday starter David Price in Detroit in 2014-15.Holaday was claimed off waivers from Texas on Friday.There would be no hesitation for Bryan to handle David tomorrow, Farrell said. David had a lot of history with Bryan back from Detroit. Theres a comfort level there.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia, who left Friday nights game after fouling a pitch off his left ankle, was still sore Saturday and didnt play. Farrell said Pedroia would hopefully be back in the lineup Sunday. ... OF Chris Youngs rehab assignment date will depend upon a baserunning workout Sunday. ... 1B Hanley Ramirez, after sitting out two games with a jammed left wrist, came through Fridays game without incident. He struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning Saturday, and Farrell expected him back in the Red Sox lineup on Sunday.NEXT UPRed Sox: LHP David Price (9-7,4.30) enters Sundays start with a 3.15 ERA over his last five outings. He leads the American League with seven double-digit strikeout games.Dodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy (2-2,2.76) has seen the team lose each of his last four starts, despite him allowing six runs in 17 1/3 innings ( 3.12 ERA). Current Red Sox are batting .328 against McCarthy (64 at-bats). Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys ChinaStitched NFL Jerseys ' ' '
