wanted to rest its most talented player

DETROIT -- Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson isnt playing in the Lions exhibition game against the New England Patriots. Johnson also missed last weeks game in Cleveland, largely as a precaution. The Lions didnt provide details before Thursday nights game at Ford Field about why Johnson was sitting out. The team again most likely wanted to rest its most talented player, who has been bothered by a bruised knee. Johnson, who had a league-leading 122 receptions for an NFL-record 1,964 yards last season, caught three passes in Detroits preseason opener on Aug. 9 against the New York Jets. Patrick Edwards is starting in Johnsons place. Johnson will begin the season needing 1,338 yards to pass Herman Moore (9,174) for the most receiving yards in Lions history. Tracy Mcgrady Jersey .com) - His team lost in the round of 16 of the FCS playoffs, yet Northern Iowa football coach Mark Farley says his team has made a strong case to be voted to the top 5 in the final rankings. Aaron Gordon Jersey . The Raptors (15-15) posted six road victories last month and have won seven of their last nine games overall. Toronto visits the Washington Wizards on Friday night. http://www.magicbasketballprostore.com/kids-jason-williams-magic-jersey/.J. Hardy finally got in on the fun Saturday, against a likely opponent. Orlando Magic Jerseys .? It was his second straight start for the Jets; he suffered a 1-0 loss against Minnesota Monday. So this season Hutchinson has now won games in the ECHL, AHL and NHL. He was perfect three- for-three in the shootout to nail down the win. Terrence Ross Jersey . The Red Wings hadnt played the night before. The Boston Bruins had. A month from now, or two months from now, it doesnt matter. But right now it does matter, when you start and you play back to back, its wear and tear on you for sure, Babcock said.MINNEAPOLIS - The rain dripped off the brim of his cap as Phil Hughes walked off the mound.An hour-plus delay meant the last start of his first season for Minnesota was over. That half-million-dollar bonus stayed one out away. He still earned a nice prize: the major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio.Hughes struck out five without a walk over eight innings, and the Twins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Wednesday afternoon.I was very aware of it, yeah, but some things just arent meant to be, said Hughes, who wouldve been paid $500,000 for reaching 210 innings. He finished with 209 2-3, having already triggered a pair of $250,000 bonuses for reaching 180 and 195 innings, on top of his $8 million salary.Manager Ron Gardenhire said Hughes wouldve returned for the ninth on a dry day, but the 66-minute delay ended that. Gardenhire also said he wouldnt try to get Hughes in any of the teams last four games at Detroit. Hughes didnt seem to mind.Finishing that out today is a pretty cool way to do it, he said.Hughes had been aware of his chance at the record, too, for the last few weeks. Every three-ball count created some anxiety.You cant just lay pitches down the middle, he said.Hughes (16-10) finished his first year with the Twins with the same number of wins and walks. With 186 strikeouts, his 11.63 ratio became the best of all time for pitchers with a qualifying amount of innings. Hughes beat Bret Saberhagen, who had 143 strikeouts and 13 walks for the New York Mets in 1994 for an 11.00 ratio.Hughes allowed only a sacrifice fly by David Peralta in the sixth.Everybodys looking from the dugout and trying to keep off that borderline high pitch, but with the way it comes out, hes sneaky, and it makes it hard to do, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said.Jared Burton closed for his third save. Hughes completed at least seven innings over each of his last nine starts, quite the rebound from a rough 2013 season in New York for the Yankees.Hes been our guy all year long that you count on, Gardenhire said.ddddddddddddDiamondbacks starter Vidal Nuno escaped with only two runs allowed in five innings despite loading the bases in the first two frames. Nuno finished 0-7 with a 3.76 ERA in 14 turns for the Diamondbacks since he was acquired July 6 from the New York Yankees in the Brandon McCarthy trade. He went 2-5 with a 5.42 ERA in 17 appearances for the Yankees.Paid attendance was 29,445 for the home finale, though the number of people in the park was probably one-third of that and far less once the rain came. That gave the Twins a season total of 2,250,606 tickets sold, the fewest in five years at Target Field and the lowest number since 2004.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: 2B Aaron Hill didnt play after he dislocated the top of his right pinky finger Monday in an eighth-inning headfirst slide into home.Twins: Mauers bruised right elbow was a little sore, Gardenhire said, from a pitch that hit him Tuesday in the first inning. The manager wanted to keep Mauer fresh for the weekend for an optimal lineup against Detroit with the AL Central race ongoing.I want him playing all those games, Gardenhire said.In the sixth inning, 3B Trevor Plouffe left the game with a broken left forearm. He was struck by A.J. Pollocks knee during an attempted tag as Pollock slid into third base.UP NEXTTwins: Minnesota has four games left against the Tigers, who hold a slim lead over Kansas City, with rookie Trevor May (3-5, 8.39) pitching Thursday at Detroit against Tigers ace Max Scherzer (17-5, 3.19). May had a three-start winning streak snapped last Saturday against Cleveland, giving up seven runs in 4 2-3 innings.Diamondbacks: Arizona has Thursday off before returning home to finish the season against St. Louis, the NL Central leader still seeking to clinch a third straight division title. Trevor Cahill (3-12, 5.55), who is winless in his last six starts with 25 earned runs surrendered in 28 1-3 innings, will start for Arizona against Michael Wacha (5-6, 3.18).
