CHICAGO -- Jose Quintana beamed while describing the attention the first all-Colombian pitching matchup in major league history was getting back home. Denis Savard Jersey .I think Colombia won today, he said.Quintana bested countryman Julio Teheran, Todd Frazier hit his 25th homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 5-4 on Saturday.A Colombian flag hung outside a suite down the left field line to celebrate the milestone. The pitchers were born about 25 miles apart in the northern department of Bolivar.Teheran is my friend and we have a good relationship, Quintana said. Facing him at this level, thats good for the country. I enjoyed this game and I took the win. Thats great for me.Frazier, who will go for his second straight Home Run Derby title Monday, hit a two-run shot in the second and an RBI double in Chicagos three-run third. He also connected in Friday nights 11-8 loss in the series opener.I feel stronger, I feel more relaxed, a little quicker swing, Frazier said. For me, its hitting good pitches. I say this all the time, if Im swinging outside the zone Im going to have some trouble. I feel really good at the plate right now.Teheran (3-8) allowed five runs and nine hits over six innings. The All-Star, who missed his last start with an infection in his right thigh, enjoyed facing Quintana.Were pretty close, Teheran said. Sometimes in the offseason we get to work together. It was exciting to be able to pitch against him.Quintana (7-8) won his second straight start despite giving up home runs to Gordon Beckham, Jeff Francoeur and Freddie Freeman in six innings.Chicago had scored 13 runs in Quintanas last 10 starts. With a strong wind aiding fly balls, the left-hander allowed four runs and five hits, but he got the support he needed this time around.Atlanta had chances in the last two innings.Zach Duke replaced Quintana and got four straight outs. Chase dArnaud then doubled off Matt Albers. After a groundout, the White Sox walked Freeman intentionally.Nate Jones then struck out Nick Markakis, who had hit three homers in two games.With closer David Robertson (upper left leg strain) unavailable, Jones came out for the ninth and allowed one-out singles to Adonis Garcia and A.J. Pierzynski.A wild pitch put runners at second and third. Jones struck out Erick Aybar before walking ninth-place hitter Ender Inciarte intentionally.If you have bases loaded, youve got every base to be able to get a force out, manager Robin Ventura said.Jones got his third save by retiring dArnaud on a grounder to third on the first pitch. Fans in yellow Colombia shirts above their flag cheered.I think we have better baseball now, Quintana said. Its good for us and Im proud.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: C Tyler Flowers left with a left hand injury in the second inning and wont play Sunday. I had a checked swing my first at-bat and felt something not good, he said. Pierzynski, a member of Chicagos 2005 World Series-winning team, replaced him and was greeted with a standing ovation.White Sox: Robertson said he wont be able to pitch Sunday, either. Im thinking right after the All-Star break Ill be ready to roll, he said. ... LHP Carlos Rodon wore a brace and was sheepish after spraining his left wrist when he slipped on the dugout steps before Friday nights game. Rodon was put on the disabled list and replaced by RHP Tommy Kahnle from Triple-A Charlotte.ASSORTED HITSWhite Sox rookie shortstop Tim Anderson went 2 for 4, giving him multiple hits in 13 of his 27 major league games.NO HELP NEEDEDFreeman pulled off unassisted double play in the fifth. He fielded Melky Cabreras one-out grounder and stepped on first, then chased down Adam Eaton, who stopped halfway to second to get in a rundown.UP NEXTWhite Sox RHP James Shields (4-9, 5.67 ERA) seeks his third straight victory in the series finale Sunday against Braves RHP and Minooka, Illinois, product Mike Foltynewicz (2-3, 4.29 ERA). Henri Jokiharju Jersey . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. Duncan Keith Jersey . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. http:///...e-blackhawks-jersey/ . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. MANCHESTER, England -- Paul Pogba is close to joining Manchester United for a world-record transfer fee, with manager Jose Mourinho saying Sunday the France midfielder will be at the right club to be the best player in the world.Pogba has been given permission by Juventus to have a medical examination to complete his return to Old Trafford, United said. The English club made the announcement in a one-line statement under the hashtag Pogback.Pogba left United to join Juventus in 2012, reportedly for 800,000 pounds (now $1.05 million) in compensation. He is set to return for a fee of around 105 million euros ($116.4 million), which would eclipse the 101 million euros that Real Madrid spent to sign Gareth Bale from Tottenham in 2013.I dont think Real were upset when they broke the record with Gareth Bale or Cristiano (Ronaldo). I dont think its a reason to be sad -- its a reason to be proud, Mourinho said.Football is crazy and the market has become crazy. What you think this season is crazy, you realize three years later its not crazy anymore.Uniteds statement said the medical would take place at the clubs training complex, but didnt say when.Pogba would be the clubs fourth signing since Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal in May as manager of United, the record 20-time English champion. Defender Eric Bailly, midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic have already moved to Old Trafford this offseason.Finally, Mourinho said, when askeed about Pogbas impending arrival following Uniteds 2-1 win over Leicester in the Community Shield. Anton Forsberg Jersey. Its amazing that such a good player is with us. Finally we have him.United is the perfect club to bring him to the level he wants to be, Mourinho added. The Premier League is the perfect habitat for that, if you want to be the best player in the world. If you go to Barcelona or Real Madrid, you are in trouble because I dont think the other two big guys (Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo) will let you. Here he is in the most-seen, worldwide, championship which is absolutely incredible, with a team which wants to bring Manchester United to the top again. We have everything to give him and we know the reasons why he wants to come to us.Pogbas expensive return to Old Trafford follows a bitter split four years ago. The then-United manager Alex Ferguson accused Pogba of not showing United any respect and insisted he was happy to let Pogba leave.Now the Frenchman is among the brightest young talents in the game after winning four successive Serie A titles with Juventus and becoming a regular for his national team.Money, he would get at any big club, Mourinho said. He comes because he knows the club, knows the city, many of the players and wants to be an important part of the project. Hopefully everything goes well. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
