An MRI on the left knee of Orioles 3B Manny

Six is often the magic number in the Indian Premier League. [url=http://www.sharkssportsshop.com/adidas+marc+edouard+vlasic+sharks+jersey]Adidas Marc-Edouard Vlasic Jersey[/url] . Chris Gayle is the IPLs six machine, bashing 38 maximums last year for Royal Challengers Bangalore as well as holding the records for the most sixes in a single season (59), the most in an innings (17) and the most since the event began in 2008 (230). If youre looking for sixes, Chris Gayle is your man... The IPL has produced plenty more interesting numbers, though. Heres the pick of them, in descending order...1.6million - The amount in pounds Delhi Daredevils paid to acquire Yuvraj Singh in the 2015 IPL auction, making him the most expensive player in the competitions history for the second year running after Royal Challengers Bangalore parted with 1.4million to sign him in 2014.3,699 - The record number of IPL runs scored by Suresh Raina in his 128 innings for Chennai Super Kings. The India batsman, who will play for newly-formed Gujarat Lions in 2016, has also notched the joint-most IPL scores over fifty (26) along with Kolkatas Gautam Gambhir; played in the most games (132); and taken the most catches (75). Suresh Raina has scored more IPL runs than any other player 733 - The highest number of runs amassed in a single IPL season, a feat achieved by Michael Hussey in 2013 for Chennai Super Kings and by Chris Gayle in 2012 for Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 700-run mark has only been surpassed on one other occasion, by Gayle in 2013 (708 runs).263 - The highest team score in IPL history, posted by Royal Challengers Bangalore versus the now-defunct Pune Warriors in March 2013. Gayles 175no was the highlight as the Warriors attack, including Aaron Finch, whose one over of spin went for 29 runs, were treated with disdain. Gayle and De Villiers are team-mates at Royal Challengers Bangalore 175 - Gayles knock, which featured 17 sixes, 13 fours and gave him a strike rate of 265.15, is the best-ever in the IPL, trumping the 158 Brendon McCullum hit for Kolkata Knight Riders against Bangalore during the IPLs debut season and the 133 Gayles Royal Challengers team-mate, AB de Villiers, smote against Mumbai in 2015.143 - The number of wickets taken by Lasith Malinga for Mumbai. Amit Mishra (111), a nomad who has played for Delhi, Deccan and Sunrisers, has also taken over 100 scalps, with Harbhajan Singh (110), Piyush Chawla (109), and Dwayne Bravo (105) completing the feat in 2015. Vinay Kumar (98), Dale Steyn (92) and Ravichandran Ashwin (90) will hope to follow suit in 2016. 66 - The record amount of runs Ishant Sharma conceded in an IPL innings while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad against Chennai in 2013. The seamer was walloped by Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay and Mike Hussey as he recorded an economy rate of 16.50 from four overs.58 - The lowest team score in the IPL, compiled by Rajasthan versus Bangalore in Cape Town in 2009. Tyron Henderson, Ravindra Jadeja and Yusuf Pathan (all 11) top scored, as the Royals eight other batsmen made single figures and Bangalore spinner Anil Kumble took 5-5 in 3.1 overs. Dwayne Bravo loves a wicket in the IPL 35 - The number of hundreds scored in the IPL. Chris Gayle has drilled five of them, while Adam Gilchrist, Virender Sehwag, AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum, Murali Vijay, David Warner and Shane Watson have thumped two apiece. McCullum blasted the first, with four being amassed in 2015, by Gayle, Watson, McCullum and De Villiers.32 - The record number of wickets Dwayne Bravo took in 2013 as Chennai Super Kings made the final. No other bowler has taken more than 30 scalps in a single IPL, though Mumbais Malinga and Rajasthans James Faulkner (both 28) came close in 2011 and 2013 respectively, while Bravo took 26 in 2015. 30 - The number of balls it took Gayle to reach three figures in his 175. Gayles century remains the fastest recorded in all cricket, though De Villiers ran him close in early 2015 when he scored a 31-ball ton for South Africa in an ODI against West Indies in Johannesburg, a game Gayle played in.15 - The number of deliveries it took Yusuf Pathan to score the quickest IPL fifty for Kolkata Knight Riders against Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014. The right-hander, who also has a 37-ball IPL hundred to his name, finished with a staggering 72 from 22 balls - after being dropped on nought! Yusuf Pathan creamed a 15-ball fifty in 2014 13 - The number of IPL hat-tricks. Spinner Amit Mishra has achieved the feat three times, for Delhi Daredevils in 2008, Deccan Chargers in 2011 and Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2013. Yuvraj Singh, meanwhile, took two hat-tricks for Kings XI in 2009, against Bangalore and Deccan.10 - The amount of ducks picked up by Gambhir, Piyush Chawla and Harbhajan Singh, though Gambhir can console himself with the fact he has also scored 26 IPL fifties! Amit Mishra and Manish Pandey - the match-winner for Kolkata in the 2014 final against Kings XI with a 50-ball 94 - have notched 10 noughts. 6 - The record number of wickets taken in an innings, by Sohail Tanvir for Rajasthan Royals in 2008. The Pakistan left-armer tore through Chennais top three, removing Parthiv Patel and Stephen Fleming for ducks, before polishing off the tail to record figures of 6-14 from four overs. Australian James Faulkner, though, is the only bowler with two five-fors.5 - The number of teams to have won the IPL. Rajasthan took the inaugural crown in 2008, with Deccan earning the spoils a year later. Chennai then claimed back-to-back crowns in 2010 and 2011, while Kolkata won in 2012 and 2014 and Mumbai Indians prevailed in 2013 as well as last year, beating Chennai on both occasions.Watch each and every match in the 2016 IPL live on Sky Sports, starting with the opener between reigning champions Mumbai and Indians and the MS Dhoni-captained Rising Pune Supergiants, from 3pm, Saturday, Sky Sports 3.

The Orioles dropped out of the post-season race Tuesday night, losing to the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 in 10 innings in a game that had an all too familiar feel for Baltimore. Baltimores sixth straight loss, combined with Clevelands comeback win over the Chicago White Sox, left the Orioles six games behind the Indians for the final wild-card slot with five games left. A year ago, the Orioles made the playoffs because they were outstanding in close games. Baltimore was 29-9 in one-run affairs and 16-2 in games that went extra innings. This year, those numbers are 17-31 and 8-7. What went wrong? "I dont know who youd have to talk to to get the answer to that one," shortstop J.J. Hardy said. "I dont know. Its just the way things worked out. We still believe were a good team, and were going to get better." The Orioles knew it was going to be nearly impossible to reach the post-season after they were swept in a four-game series in Tampa Bay before returning home. This defeat finalized the inevitable. "We play all the way from February 15th or whenever we started to get to the playoffs," Hardy said. "Its hard to think that after how many games weve played since then, were not going, so yeah, its tough." Torontos Mark DeRosa singled in the tying run in the eighth inning and put the Blue Jays ahead in the 10th. Sergio Santos (1-1) worked a perfect ninth and Casey Janssen got three outs for his 34th save. Jose Reyes drew a one-out walk in the Toronto 10th off Francisco Rodriguez (2-1) and Munenori Kawasaki singled. Reyes appeared to be picked off second but was called safe, drawing Orioles manager Buck Showalter out to argue the call. "The throw beat me but he dont touch me," Reyes said. "He dont tag me. It wasnt even close. That was the right call by the umpire." Brett Lawrie then hit into a fielders choice and DeRosa singled to right. Brian Roberts and Nate McLouth homered for the Orioles, whose six-game skid ties their longest of the season. Down the stretch, Baltimore lost its hitting touch and ability to win the tight ones. The scores of those six losses: 3-1, 5-4, 5-1, 3-1, 5-4 and 3-2. "For some reason, our consistency offensively wasnt there, as it should have been at the end," McLouth said Baltimore starter Chris Tillman gave up one run, five hits and a walk in seven innings. [url=http://www.sharkssportsshop.com/adidas+mikkel+boedker+sharks+jersey]Adidas Mikkel Boedker Jersey[/url]. He tied a career high with nine strikeouts and left with a 2-1 lead, but the bullpen immediately gave up the advantage in the eighth. Reyes greeted Kevin Gausman with a single and reached third with one out before Lawrie struck out on a 3-2 pitch. DeRosa pinch hit for Adam Lind and delivered an opposite-field bloop single off Brian Matusz to knot the score at 2. Vying for his fourth straight win for the Blue Jays, starter Todd Redmond had a decent outing -- except for two pitches, the ones Roberts and McLouth sent over the scoreboard in right field in the third inning. Redmond allowed two runs and eight hits over 5 2-3 innings. "I didnt have my best stuff compared to my last couple of outings but I tried to give the guys a chance to win," the right-hander said. "The offence came through and we did." Toronto got a second-inning run when Ryan Goins hit a two-out RBI single. In the bottom half, the Orioles loaded the bases with one out but failed to score. In the third, however, Roberts and McLouth connected within a span of three pitches to put Baltimore up 2-1. It was the fifth time this season the Orioles hit back-to-back homers, the second time against the Blue Jays. But the lead ultimately wouldnt hold up -- as has been the case so often this season. "Its a lot of close games," Showalter said. "Theres some things we did well and some things we didnt. But theres a lot of good baseball ahead for this team and this organization."

Machado was carted off the field after the injury occurred Monday against Tampa Bay. He was in the dugout and received an ovation when shown on the scoreboard. ...
