BALTIMORE -- For six innings, Cole Hamels dominated the Baltimore Orio

BALTIMORE -- For six innings, Cole Hamels dominated the Baltimore Orioles.Unfortunately for the Texas Rangers, his impressive run began after the left-hander got off to an uncharacteristically poor start.Hamels gave up three first-inning runs, and that -- along with a strong outing by Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman -- was enough to provide Baltimore with a 3-2 victory Wednesday night.Matt Wieters had two RBI for the Orioles, whose 39-16 record at home is the best in the majors. Baltimore will seek to complete a three-game sweep on Thursday in a series between first-place teams.Baltimore took control by using three hits and two walks to jump out to a 3-1 lead.You want to be able to go out there and get ahead, Hamels said. Sometimes you are not able to find it in that first inning and that will definitely cost you. More times than not, you can try to scratch out a win, but its definitely my fault, with not being able to establish a strike zone in those key situations.After the shaky first inning, Hamels (12-3) retired 13 of the next 14 batters without allowing a hit. He ended up giving up three runs, four hits and four walks over seven innings.Not bad, but not good enough.Hamels was 7-1 in his previous 11 starts and 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA since the All-Star break.Carlos Beltran homered in his second game with Texas since being obtained in a trade with the Yankees on Monday. New catcher Jonathan Lucroy also picked up his first RBI with the Rangers, and closer Jeremy Jeffress -- obtained in the trade with Milwaukee that landed Lucroy -- spent the night in the Texas bullpen after arriving earlier in the day.After Beltran hit his 23rd homer in the first inning, Baltimore took the lead for good in the bottom half. Mark Trumbo hit an RBI groundout and Wieters added a two-run single for a 3-1 lead.Lucroy delivered an RBI single in the second to get Texas within a run, but neither team scored again.Gausman (3-8) gave up two runs and seven hits in seven innings, striking out seven and walking one. The right-hander had won only two of his 18 starts this season and was coming off a horrid outing in which he allowed three homers and six runs over three innings at Toronto.And still, he was good enough to outpitch Hamels.You can give in to what conventionality says it should be like, or you can compete and look at it as an opportunity to present yourself real well, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.Showalter summed up the victory succinctly: It wasnt like we beat (Hamels) up or anything. We had one shot at it and we took advantage of it. And our pitching made it hold up.Darren ODay worked a perfect eighth and Zach Britton finished for his 33rd save in 33 tries.Gausman -- like the Orioles -- seems to perform better at home. Hes 0-7 on the road but has won his last three starts at Camden Yards.I just feel comfortable pitching here, Gausman said.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: OF Shin-Soo Choo (lower back inflammation) hopes to be activated from the DL on Thursday. Everything feels like normal, he said. I feel like I can help this team.Orioles: Rookie OF Joey Rickard (thumb) wont be available before September. I think well get him back sometime this year, Showalter said. Its just a matter of how quickly.UP NEXTRangers: A.J. Griffin (4-1, 3.99 ERA) faces the Orioles for the first time since 2013 in the series finale Thursday night. Texas is 9-4 in his 13 starts.Orioles: Wade Miley (7-8, 4.98) makes his debut with the Orioles. Obtained on Sunday in a trade with Seattle, the 29-year-old is the lone lefty in the Baltimore rotation. http://www.jordan1uk.com/555112-608-air … -pink.html .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. http://www.jordan1uk.com/air-jordan-3-r … girls.html . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. http://www.jordan1uk.com/men-s-air-retr … 1-405.html http://www.jordan1uk.com/authentic-4145 … girls.html . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. http://www.jordan1uk.com/402297-001-air … 01016.html . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Kerron Clement cleared a space in his trophy case and wrote a little note on what would occupy that spot next: Gold Medal, 2016.The American 400-meter hurdler was that confident.So confident, in fact, that his mom, Claudette, packed the familys own American flag and brought it to Rio de Janeiro. You know, just for this moment when he actually won gold.I knew I was going to win, said Clement, who finished in 47.73 seconds and held off Boniface Mucheru Tumuti of Kenya by 0.05 seconds. I came out here with one mindset: Get a gold medal.When he returns home to Gainesville, Florida, he wont have to worry about finding a spot for Olympic gold medal No. 2 -- he made the room for it in January. This gold will pair nicely with the one he earned at the 2008 Beijing Games as part of the 4x400 relay team. He also earned a silver in Beijing in the 400 hurdles.Some might be superstitious about planning for a win before it happens. Not Clement.Im a Scorpio -- once I set my mind, Im going to get it, regardless, he said. I knew I was going to get that gold medal. I was sticking to that plan. Nothing or no one was going to stop me from achieving that.And to think, he almost stopped himself. Clement was struggling with his passion for the hurdles after the 2013 world championships. He needed a break.Although he trained in 2014, he tried his best to stay away from the hurdles. He went on a vacation to the Dominican Republic with friends while the U.S. held its championships that year. The only caveat on the trip: No track talk.I hit the refocus button, said Clement, who won the 400 hurdles at the worlds championships in 2007 and `09. Honestly, when I came back (in 2015), I found a new love for the hurdles ... having a new mindset, new goals for the second chapter of mmy career, which is now.ddddddddddddThe buzz surrounding Clement in recent days hasnt so much been his performance on the track, but, rather, his cameo a few years ago in a Beyonce video, Run the World (Girls).That was fun. Thursday was a show stopper.He credits his top-notch form to better health -- hes all the way back from hernia surgery in 2012 -- and to turning himself into more of a student of his race.When I was younger, I used to run and make silly mistakes, Clement explained. Now, Im wiser.Wise enough not to panic with the field gaining on him down the backstretch -- a field that was without Javier Culson, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist from Puerto Rico, who was disqualified for a false start.Clements legs were burning with the finish line in sight and he thought about diving toward it.Not necessary. A well-timed lean did the trick.Technically, it was a perfect race, said Clement, who wears a Test me, Im clean bracelet to demonstrate his disdain for doping. I just focused on the 10 hurdles in my lane. I fought the last 100 meters. I knew the guys would be coming. I dug down deeper. I knew the guy from Kenya was coming.Bronze medalist Yasmani Copello saw big things for himself, too -- also thanks to his mom.Last night, she sent me a message, `I dream youre going to be big, explained Copello, who was born in Cuba and now competes for Turkey. I woke with that thought. I carry her in my heart.Clement knows the feeling. Thats why it meant a lot to him when he worked his way toward the stands and his mother handed him the flag.She just smiled, Clement said. I love seeing my mom smile. Shes going to cry when she sees me on the podium. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
