New York begins its final home series of the regular

Two members of golfs royal house -- Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus -- offered heartfelt condolences on the passing of Arnold Palmer, providing personal reflections on the golfer known as The King. Malik McDowell Womens Jersey .?Tiger Woods, who has won the second-most major championships with 14, said he was deeply saddened by the news on Palmer, who died Sunday at 87.Its hard to believe that Arnold has passed, and Im deeply saddened by his loss. He meant so much to the game and to me personally, Woods said in a statement. I knew that I could always call him for advice, and I looked forward to seeing him at Bay Hill and the Masters.Arnold touched so many people. My kids were born at the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, and his philanthropic work will be remembered along with his accomplishments in golf. It was an honor and privilege to have known Arnold, and Im forever grateful for his friendship.But some of the kindest words released immediately following Palmers death came from the man whose 18 major championships remain unmatched -- Jack Nicklaus.I was shocked to hear that we lost a great friend -- and that golf lost a great friend, Nicklaus said in a statement. At this point I dont know what happened, and I suppose it is not important what happened. What is important is that we just lost one of the incredible people in the game of golf and in all of sports.My friend -- many peoples friend -- just wore out. I know he was in Pittsburgh trying to find out how to make himself better. Thats what Arnold has always tried to do. He has always been a fighter and he never gave up on anything. He didnt give up even now. Maybe his body did, but I know Arnolds will and spirit did not.Nicklaus said he last spoke to Palmer on his birthday, Sept. 10, and that Palmer sounded great.Palmer developed a rivalry and lifelong friendship with Nicklaus and Gary Player, and the trio eventually became known as the Big Three. They won seven straight Masters titles among them from 1960 to 1966 and hit ceremonial tee shots together at Augusta National to signal the start of the years first major. Palmer hit his first ceremonial tee shot at Augusta in 2007; Nicklaus joined him in 2010, and Player was added in 2012.Palmer won the Masters in 1958, 1960, 1962 and 1964 and is one of two champions -- along with Nicklaus -- who are members of Augusta National. Nicklaus (six) and Woods (four) are the only golfers who have won as many or more Masters titles.Said Nicklaus: Arnold transcended the game of golf. He was more than a golfer or even great golfer. He was an icon. He was a legend. Arnold was someone who was a pioneer in his sport. He took the game from one level to a higher level, virtually by himself. Along the way, he had millions of adoring fans ... We were great competitors, who loved competing against each other, but we were always great friends along the way. Arnold always had my back, and I had his. We were always there for each other. That never changed.He was the king of our sport and always will be. Malik McDowell Jersey .

NEW YORK -- Right in the middle of a pennant race, the New York Mets were robbed.In an electrifying finish to a pressure-packed game for the Mets, center fielder Ender Inciarte took away a three-run homer from Yoenis Cespedes for the final out of Atlantas 4-3 victory Wednesday night.Tremendous catch, New York manager Terry Collins said. One of the best youll ever see.With two runners on in the bottom of the ninth inning, Cespedes made a bid for a game-winning homer by launching a drive to deep right-center. Inciarte raced a long way to the wall and timed his jump perfectly, catching the ball just above the orange line atop the fence.Probably the best catch Ive ever made, Inciarte said. I thought that ball was gone right (off) the bat. But it was the last play of the game. I was just giving everything Ive got.And with that, the Mets were handed another damaging defeat by the last-place Braves after squandering a three-run lead.Rather than regaining sole possession of the NL wild-card lead, New York remained tied with San Francisco and St. Louis for the leagues final two playoff spots. The Giants lost to the Dodgers, and the Cardinals were routed in Colorado.At his locker, a disappointed Cespedes would answer only one question from reporters.I knew I hit the ball well, he said through a translator. I knew there was a good chance it was going to make it out, but he made a better play.Once he landed, Inciarte held up his glove in excitement and then kissed the ball as he jogged toward the infield to greet teammates. Cespedes turned and walked slowly off the field.Guys were flying over the railing, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. It just erupted. I dont think you could have won the World Series and had a bigger explosion than that right there.Some fans in the stunned crowd of 32,187 at Citi Field still had their hands on their heads as they filed up the aisles toward the exits.I still cant wrap my mind around that, how he did that. Just incredible, Braves slugger Freddie Freeman said.Bartolo Colon and Jeurys Familia failed to protect a 3-0 lead for the Mets. An error by normally sure-handed first baseman James Loney helped Atlanta tie the game with an unearned run in the eighth.Inciarte had an RBI groundout against Familia (3-4) in the ninth, sending the feisty Braves to their fifth straight victory. They completed their second consecutive three-game sweep at Citi Field, including one in June.Ian Krol (2-0) struck out pinch-hitter Kevin Plawecki with the bases loaded to end the eighth -- moments after Cespedes neaarly put New York ahead. Delano Hill Youth Jersey. His high fly to deep left field was knocked down by a leaping Matt Kemp at the top of the fence, with the ball glancing off Kemps glove and dropping to the ground for a double.Cespedes thought he had a go-ahead homer. He tossed his bat aside and started to trot before digging for second when the ball stayed in play.Jim Johnson got three outs for his 17th save.Asdrubal Cabrera and Rene Rivera homered to help the Mets build their 3-0 lead. Colon carried a three-hit shutout into the seventh before ex-Met Anthony Recker started Atlantas comeback with a two-run homer.Seeking a five-out save from his All-Star closer, Collins turned to Familia with two runners on. But the Braves surprised New York with a double steal on Familias second pitch, and Kemp made it 3-all with a sacrifice fly.FABULOUS FREDDIEFreeman extended his hitting streak to a career-best 25 games and has reached base safely in 41 straight for Atlanta.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Mike Foltynewicz threw about 25 fastballs in a bullpen session and said he felt normal. As long as that continues, he plans to mix in all his pitches during a longer bullpen Friday and hopes to make at least one more start this season. Foltynewicz has been sidelined since getting hit on the left calf by a line drive Sept. 12.Mets: Rookie LHP Steven Matz (shoulder) threw a bullpen and is tentatively scheduled to start Friday night against Philadelphia, assuming he feels fine Thursday.

Hes received two injections, the second one on Monday, but still was unable to swing a bat Wednesday, according to Collins. ...
