re prime fodder for Sky Spo

LOS ANGELES -- Even the red-hot Washington Nationals offence proved no match for Clayton Kershaw. Nike Free Clearance . Kershaw pitched eight strong innings for his major league leading 17th win and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 Tuesday night. Kershaw (17-3) gave up three hits and one run, walked two and struck out eight to win his third straight start and lower his ML-leading ERA to 1.70. He also went 1 for 2 with a run scored at the plate. "He spoils us, thats for sure," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Hes just so valuable for us." The Nationals came in with 14 home runs in their previous four games, including four against the Dodgers on Monday. Kershaw quickly quieted their bats, working through six shutout innings before giving up a solo homer to Bryce Harper in the seventh, his only blip of the night. It was the first homer hit by a lefty against Kershaw this season. "He just didnt give us any opportunities," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "Thats why hes doing so well. Hes just not making any mistakes." Kershaw retired 12 straight at one point and, with his eight strikeouts, surpassed the 200-strikeout mark for the fifth consecutive season. He joins Hall of Famers Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and Don Sutton as the only pitchers in franchise history with at least five seasons of 200 strikeouts. "You always want to be consistent," Kershaw said. "You try to give your team a chance. When you only get to contribute once every five days its important for the starting pitcher to get some momentum." Kershaw was also responsible for jump starting the Dodgers offence. He laced a one-out single to centre in the fifth, advanced to third on Dee Gordons single and scored on Adrian Gonzalezs infield single to break a scoreless tie. "He was impressive all the way around tonight," Mattingly said. "Getting our offence going, going hard first to third on the basepaths, it just shows what a competitor he is." Gordon raced home from second on Gonzalezs single when shortstop Ian Desmonds throw to the plate sailed over the head of catcher Wilson Ramos. Juan Uribe added a two-run homer in the sixth to extend the Dodgers lead to 4-0, and that was enough for Kershaw and closer Kenley Jansen. Jansen came on in the ninth and pitched a hitless frame for his 39th save. Doug Fister (12-6) took the loss for the Nationals. He went five-plus innings, gave up 10 hits, four runs, walked two and struck out two. Gonzalez went 2 for 3 with a walk, Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis both went 2 for 4 and Joc Pederson got his first career hit in his first career start, a bloop single to centre in the second inning off Fister. With the win, the Dodgers (78-61) moved behind the Nationals (78-59) for the National Leagues best record. "We needed to get the W tonight," Kershaw said. "It was good to get it." TRAINERS ROOM Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche sat out Tuesdays game due to lower back stiffness. Kevin Frandsen started at first base in his place. LaRoche is day-to-day. UP NEXT Nationals: RHP Jordan Zimmermann (10-5, 2.93) hasnt lost since July 11. He is 1-0 in two career starts at Dodger Stadium. Dodgers: RHP Carlos Frias (0-0, 5.65) will make his first major league start. The 24-year old rookie has allowed 13 hits and nine runs in 14 1/3 innings with the Dodgers this season. He was primarily a starter in Triple-A, going 8-4 with a 5.01 ERA. Clearance Nike Free .Before a raucous sellout crowd, the Hawks won for the 29th time in 31 games to extend their Eastern-best record to 36-8.As usual, pretty much everyone chipped in.Four starters were in double figures and backup point guard Dennis Schroder led a spurt at the start of the fourth quarter that helped the Hawks pull away. Cheap Nike Free Online .cas NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with a man whos spent most of his career on highlight reels and a goalie actually "reaching back" for a save.In part two of our hunt for value for money Sky Sports Fantasy Football players, our scout looks at defenders who could defy their modest price tags. Hector Bellerin was last seasons top scorer with 157 points and the Gunners man is priced at £10.3m for the new season - only just behind the games most expensive defender, Tottenhams Toby Alderweireld (£10.5m).But plenty of defenders who went on to rack up the points were available for smaller Fantasy Football fees last term, Leicester left-back Christian Fuchs accruing as many as Arsenals Laurent Koscielny - the most expensive option in 2015/16 - at £2.5m less. Sky Sports Fantasy Football Not got a team yet? Pick your XI, create a league and let the mind games begin! After looking at value goalkeepers, we turn our attention to some defensive prospects who could defy their modest valuations and do the business for your Sky Sports Fantasy Football team this coming campaign... Cedric Soares (Southampton - £7m)Experience has taught us the perils of signing players at inflated prices on the back of performances at summer tournaments but heres the chance to land a Euro 2016 winner who has been linked with a move to Barcelona for a modest price. Cedric Soares impressed for Portugal at Euro 2016 Soares helped Portugal keep four clean sheets en route to Euro 2016 glory after establishing himself as part of the Premier Leagues joint fifth-best backline last season. He also operated in a more advanced role down the right at time, notching a couple assists. At 24, and with a season of Premier League action under his belt, expect him to continue to flourish at a lower price than Virgil van Dijk (£8.1m), Jose Fonte (£7.8m) and Ryan Bertrand (£7.7m).Leighton Baines (Everton - £7.3m)The Everton left-back was last seasons second most expensive defender in Sky Sports Fantasy Football but is now a whole £3.2m cheaper than the most expensive pick.  Leighton Baines scored in two of Evertons final four games of the season That valuation drop comes as a consequence of him recording a meagre 46 points last season due to a combination of injury, reduced set-piece duties and the Toffees troubled backline.New boss Ronald Koeman will surely make tightening up that defence a priority and showed hes capable with Southampton last campaign, despite a series of injuries and personnel changes. As a free-kick specialist himself, Koeman will surely appreciate Baines dead-ball threat and those considering selecting the 31-year-old will hope he returns to first-choice penalty taker.Craig Dawson (West Brom - £6.9m)As a general rule of Sky Sports Fantasy Football, when searching for a cheaper defensive option, yooull do far worse than looking towards a Tony Pulis backline. Wholesale Nike Free. Craig Dawson celebrates powering home a header against Tottenham His West Brom side may struggle to challenge the upper echelons again this season but you can guarantee they will be organised, with his system seeing them end last season with the best defensive record outside the top six.While Dawson is marginally their most expensive defender, hes worth the nominal extra cost of £0.2m than Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans, having found the net four times last season. The Baggies man picked up 99 points - more than Branislav Ivanovic (£10m) or Danny Rose (£9.3m).Calum Chambers (Arsenal - £7m)The long-term lay-off of Per Mertesacker (£9.2m) has seen Sky Sports Fantasy Football bosses scrambling to secure the services of Chambers, who is currently Arsenals only available centre-back. With Gabriel (£8.9m) left at home with tonsillitis and Koscielny (£10.3m) given additional leave to recover from Euro 2016, Chambers has the chance to prove he is ready to step up during the Gunners pre-season tour of America. Calum Chambers will be looking to impress Arsene Wenger in pre-season If the 21-year-old can secure a regular place in 2016/17 then his Sky Sports Fantasy Football prospects look bright, with Arsenal recording the most clean sheets in the Premier League last season. However, Gabriel looks the most likely replacement for Mertesacker so it could take another injury for the opportunity to come the versatile defenders way.Patrick van Aanholt (Sunderland - £7m)Attacking full-backs are prime fodder for Sky Sports Fantasy Football bosses and no defender proved more offensively effective last season than Sunderlands Dutchman. Two of his efforts may have been retrospectively credited as own goals but the left-back still retained the points, meaning he was credited with six goals and three assists. Patrick van Aanholt fires home a free-kick against Everton David Moyes will be keen to exploit the threat held by the left-back - who also provided five assists in 2014/15 - as he did successfully with Baines and Seamus Coleman at Everton, while attempting to tighten up the Black Cats with a more settled backline.
