PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided arbitration with reliever Joe Thatcher on Friday, agreeing to a one-year contract worth $2,375,000. Vancouver Canucks Shop Free Shipping . The 32-year-old left-hander was 3-2 with a 3.20 ERA in 72 appearances with the Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres last season. Arizona also swapped arbitration figures with outfielders Mark Trumbo and Gerardo Parra. Trumbo asked for $5.85 million, while the Diamondbacks were at $3.4 million. Parra asked for $5.2 million, compared to a $4.3 million proposal by the team. Arizona acquired Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels in a three-team trade in December. The slugger hit .234 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs last year. Thatcher came to Arizona as part of the July 31 trade that sent right-hander Ian Kennedy to the Padres. Since 2007, Thatcher ranks third among major leaguers in the percentage of inherited runners to score at 19 per cent. He has a career record of 8-12 with a 3.34 ERA in 309 games over seven seasons with San Diego and Arizona. Authentic Alexander Mogilny Jersey . The team of Lars Nelson, Daniel Richardsson, Johan Olsson, and anchor Marcus Hellner cruised to victory in the 4x10 km event, winning in a time of one hour, 28 minutes, and 42. Authentic Jacob Markstrom Jersey . Winnipeg trailed by five points in the final minute when quarterback Drew Willy completed a 13-play, 75-yard drive with Feoli-Gudinos 18-yard touchdown catch on third down to lift the Bombers to a 34-33 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Thanks to Sidney Crosby, Christian Ehrhoff had plenty of time and space for his go-ahead goal.They missed the coverage on the weak side, the Penguins defenceman said.(Crosby) made a great pass. I found a seam. I had a lot of time and picked the corner, and it went right where I wanted to put it.Ehrhoffs goal with 1:50 left in the third period lifted Pittsburgh to a 3-2 win over reeling Ottawa, which its fifth consecutive game.The Penguins also got two goals from Evgeni Malkin.David Legwand and Mika Zibanejad scored for the Senators to forge a 2-2 tie after two periods.Pittsburgh, which had dominated the first period, began to carry the play as the third period was winding down. Crosby moved the puck up the left side to start the winning play.I saw (Ehrhoff) there sneaking, said Crosby, who entered Saturday tied for the NHL lead with 33 points but whose assist on Ehrhoffs goal broke a three-game points-less streak.He had a lot of time. Hes got a big shot. He showed it there. You give him time like that and hes got a hard one. He put it in a perfect spot, top shelf.Ehrhoff had a clear look at the net and the luxury of contemplating how he might beat goaltender Craig Anderson.That doesnt happen too often, so it was a bit of a surprise, but definitely nice for us, Ehrhoff said. Usually when you have that much time, you think too much, but I just knew where I wanted to put it, and like I said, this time I put it right where I wanted.The goal put the Senators in a 6-10-4 slide since opening the season 4-1.I thought we created enough opportunities for us to win the game today and we have to continue to do that and we probably could have created more if we would have put the puck to the net in situations when we had people there, Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said.Were angry that we lost the game. It was a game certainly that was winnable.Anderson, who got shaken up on the Penguins first goal but remained in the game and made 30 saves, said losing winnable games has become a theme.Were doing a lot of good things that enable us to win games and were just not getting the results right now, he said. It can be frustrating at times, but if we keep focusing on the process and keep focusing on our game, the results will turnn around for us and thats what the last few games have been about. Authentic Michael Del Zotto Jersey. Weve been there. Weve been close. We just need to get over that hump.The Penguins, who have not lost consecutive regulation games this season, described the game as a bounce-back from a lacklustre performance Thursday in a 3-0 loss to Vancouver.The first period we controlled the puck, Malkin said. We controlled the game, controlled the puck. The last 10 minutes we played great. We shot the puck, spent time in the offensive zone. It was a big two points for us.Malkin, who moved from centre to winger because of injuries, opened the scoring at 4:17 of the first period. Just out of the penalty box after serving a roughing minor, Malkin caught up to the puck in front of the Ottawa bench. He cut in from the left point and tucked the puck behind Andersons right skate for the only goal of the first period.Malkins full-body follow-through took him into Anderson.I tried to stop, but I had too much speed, Malkin said.Later in the first period, Penguins forward Zach Sill was escorted off the ice on a game misconduct after he levelled Ottawas Kyle Turris in the neutral zone, then fought Senators forward Alex Chiasson.There was no immediate word on whether Sill might face a disciplinary hearing with the NHL for the high hit. Turris returned to the game shortly after the hit.Hockey is hockey. Thats not up to me. The referees called it, the league looks at it, MacLean said.At 1:13 of the second period, Legwand tied it for Ottawa 1-1 during a power play when he deflected a shot from the left point by Erik Karlsson past Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.Zibanejad shrugged off close coverage by the Penguins Andrew Ebbett and threw the puck between Fleurys past for a 2-1 lead at 8:44.Malkin tipped a shot by Olli Maatta past Anderson during a Pittsburgh power play to tie it 2-2 at 18:03.NOTES: Winger Patric Hornqvist, who is still being evaluated for a possible concussion, did not play. The Penguins also were without injured defenceman Kris Letang, injured forward Chris Kunitz, Beau Bennett and Pascal Dupuis, and suspended defenceman Robert Bortuzzo. ... Forward Craig Adams established a Penguins record by playing in his 314th consecutive game. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseyscheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
