    Five years ago, Happ took a line drive directly to his head, hitting him behind his left ear and fracturing his skull. He fell to the ground hard enough that he strained ligaments in his knee, and it would be three months before he returned to the mound.

    Happ will start for Toronto in Thursday’s series finale, and while he’s been back to the Trop nine times since his injury there, he’s won only once, in that same 2013 season, in just his third game back from injury.

    Happ is off to a solid 8-3 start with a 3.71 ERA, and he’s 4-0 in his last five starts, taking a full run off his season ERA along the way. One of his three losses this season came against the Rays Jordan Scarlett Jersey , giving up three runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings in a May 4 loss where he walked more batters (four) than he struck out (three). On Friday against Baltimore, he was especially sharp, throwing seven innings and allowing only two hits and a single unearned run.

    And while he’s struggled at Tropicana Field, his overall career numbers against the Rays are better, with a 3-4 record and 5.05 ERA — he has just one win in 10 appearances against Tampa Bay over the last four seasons.

    Tampa Bay, trying to push through a rash of injuries to its starting pitching, continues to experiment regularly with “openers,” using relievers as part of bullpen days to start about half their games in recent weeks. Nowhere is the Rays’ desperation more glaring than with Thursday’s starter, Wilmer Font, who is already playing for his third team this season.

    Font pitched six games with the Dodgers David Montgomery Jersey , then four with the Athletics, and he’s now made five appearances with the Rays. He’s 0-3 on the season with a 9.59 ERA, but in his five games with Tampa Bay, he’s fared much better, with a 3.24 ERA and 0-1 record. In those five games, he’s thrown 8 1/3 innings, allowing three earned runs on five hits. In his last outing, also a makeshift start, he lasted into the third inning Friday against Seattle, but gave up two runs on two hits http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-riley-ridley-jersey , getting five of his seven outs via strikeout.

    Font has actually faced Toronto already this season while with Oakland — staked with the ninth inning and a 9-0 lead, he gave up a two-run home run to Yangervis Solarte.

    The two American League East rivals went into Wednesday’s game within a half-game of each other in the standings, still well ahead of last-place Baltimore.

    Toronto gets Thursday off before beginning an interleague stretch at home, with three games against the Nationals, then two against the Braves. The Rays, meanwhile, go on the road for the next week, with four games at the Yankees and three at the Astros, then returning home with seven of their next nine again against the Yankees and Astros.

    The Dallas Cowboys are best known as "America's team" because they appear on televisions across the country and their faces are very familiar to the general public, even if the lady or gentleman isn't a diehard NFL fan. However Jonah Williams Jersey , you might disagree with this all-American belief, as there are other teams, like, say, the Green Bay Packers that better fit into the stereotypical ideal due to their plethora of fans who travel well and not just attend home games. But, anyways, the Cowboys continue to be one of the most historic franchises in all of professional sports, so let me dive into a Cowboys-related topic right now.Like many other pro teams, the Cowboys have a rich history, but not all the previous players and coaches will be remembered by the average NFL fan on the street. There have been plenty of folks who went AWOL for whatever reason it may be Elgton Jenkins Jersey , and no one really heard anything about them ever again. But, that's the sporting life, and not everyone will get the good things that they've ask for.With all that said, here's my take on the 20 NFL players that everyone forgets played for the Cowboys. As always, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section. Enjoy my list! Happy reading!
