happens to be 53-28 at Globe Life Park. from mary123's blog

Since the start of 2014, Australian allrounder Ellyse Perrys ODI scores read as follows: 65*, 0, 90*, 53, 72, 64*, 74*, 78, 48, 67, 90, 31, 50, 51, 64*, 35, 4, 17, 77*, 93*, 95*, 69, 56. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-bruce-bochy-giants-jersey/ . In 23 innings, she averages 89.53, with 17 scores of 50 or more. From these numbers, its clear that she finds scoring fifties three times as easy as not scoring them.These stats are incredible for any player in any format, but even more so for Perry, who has been on a stunning spree in the last three years. Before 2014, in 37 ODI innings, mostly at Nos. 7 and 8, she had scored just 555 runs at 23.12, with a single half-century.Since 2014, though, her game has moved to another level. The average of 89.53 is easily the best for any player with at least 150 runs during this period. With a 750-run cut-off, the next best is Meg Lannings average of 58.20. Perrys average during this period is the highest for any batsman over three calendar years in womens ODIs (with a 1000-run cut-off). The next highest is Karen Roltons 76.64 between 2002 and 2004; Rolton also takes the third and fourth spots in this list, with averages of 73.66 between 2000 and 2002, and 66.43 between 2004 and 2006. Perrys 17 fifty-plus scores is a record too in a three-year period, with two others on 15 coming in next - Debbie Hockley, between 1995 and 1997, and Rolton (2003-05).In terms of runs scored, Perrys 1393 in her last 25 innings is the second-highest in womens ODIs. Belinda Clark had scored 1508 at 75.40 between November 1997 and February 2000. However, Clark was an opener, which gave her more opportunities to play long innings. In terms of averages, Perrys 87.80 is the best for any player over 25 successive ODI innings, marginally ahead of Roltons 87.73 between July 2001 and December 2004. Both batsmen had ten nots in those 25 innings, though, with Perry scoring only one run more than Rolton (1317 to 1316). Clarks average of 75.40 is third in the list. What is more incredible than the average is the number of 50-plus scores Perry has notched up in the last three years - 17 in 23 innings is scarcely believable, and something that has never been achieved in ODIs, by men or women. Even when taking a 25-innings stretch, the next best is 15, by five of the top men in ODI batting - Kane Williamson, Javed Miandad, Hashim Amla, Viv Richards and Dean Jones. Among the women, 13 is the next highest, by four players - Hockley, Rolton, Clark and Mithali Raj. During this amazing run, Perry has two separate streaks of five or more successive fifties: from January 2014 to July 2015 she had six in a row, while she is currently on an streak of five in a row. The only other player to have two separate streaks or five or more 50-plus scores in womens ODIs is the former England captain, Charlotte Edwards. In fact, only three players in this format have six successive scores of 50 or more - Perry, Edwards, and Australias Lindsay Reeler.All these numbers dont even take into account Perry the bowler: in the 24 matches since the start of 2014, she has taken 33 wickets - sixth-highest during this period - at an average of 26.54. Six other women have achieved the double of 25 wickets and 500 runs during this period, but Perrys numbers stand out because the difference between her batting and bowling averages is a whopping 62.98; the next highest difference among this group is 21.32, for Suzie Bates. With an overall ODI career aggregate of 1898 to go with 112 wickets, Perry is within touching distance of becoming only the third woman to achieve the double of 2000 runs and 100 wickets. The two who have achieved this so far are Australias Lisa Sthalekar and West Indies Stafanie Taylor. Perrys numbers arent very different to those of Taylors in terms of the difference between the batting and bowling averages: the difference for Taylor, over her entire career, is 25.65, compared to Perrys 24.51. They are also currently Nos. 1 and 2 in the ICC ratings for ODI allrounders, while Perry is No. 2 in batting and No. 7 in bowling. In 2013, Taylor became the only player in ODI history, men or women, to simultaneously be ranked No. 1 in both batting and bowling. That is probably the gold standard that Perry would be aspiring towards. With inputs from Shiva Jayaraman. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-mark-melancon-giants-jersey/ .

The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. An ALDS rematch between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays promises to provide plenty of drama after the bad blood left over from last Octobers bat flip and this springs brawl, but which club has an edge, starting with a Game 1 showdown between Marco Estrada and Cole Hamels?Go inside the numbers and matchups that will decide Thursday nights game, and then vote for which team will win at the bottom of the page.Inside the pitching matchupWhen Estrada is on the mound: Estrada proved that his 2015 season wasnt a fluke as he made the All-Star team and led the AL in fewest hits allowed per nine innings for a second straight year. He did struggle in August and early September as he has had to pitch through a herniated disk in his back, but he finished strong with only two runs allowed over 19 innings in his final three outings.Estradas four-seam fastball averages 88-89 mph, which tells you a bit about where his changeup, the pitch on which he makes his living, comes in. Thrown 75-78 mph, its a pitch Estrada has the ability to manipulate to both side of the plate, so its moving away from lefties on the outside corner and away from righties on the outside corner to them as well. Batters hit just .159 against with a 32 percent strikeout rate in plate appearances ending with the pitch, an 11 percent increase from last year. Another reason for Estradas improvement from his Milwaukee days is the addition of a cutter that he now throws 12 percent of the time.Estrada is the opposite of teammate Marcus Stroman, who had the highest ground-ball rate among qualified starters. Estrada had the second-highest fly-ball rate, which is a reason why his BABIP is so low. The way to beat him is to hope one or two of those fly balls leave the park. -- David SchoenfieldWhen Hamels is on the mound:?The veteran lefty is making his 16th career postseason start, so he already knows all about the ramped-up intensity of playoff baseball. His changeup, once regarded as the best in the game, wasnt as dominant this year as batters hit .252/.311/.430 against it -- the third season in a row theyve increased their damage against the pitch after Hamels held them to a .154 average and .417 OPS in 2013. He still does a great job locating pitches down and away from right-handed batters, but its not the strikeout pitch it was a few years ago.As a result, he threw the changeup less often than ever, under 20 percent of time, and he now throws his cutter -- a pitch he didnt have when he was a World Series hero for the Phillies in 2008 -- about 21 percent of the time. Its a great pitch to get inside on right-handed batters, who hit only .217 against it, although with some power (six home runs in 129 at-bats).Hamels had a four-start stretch near the end of the season where hee gave up 21 runs in 18 innings before finishing with seven shutout innings against the As and giving up five runs in seven innings against the Brewers.http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-will-clark-giants-jersey/. Hamels did have a notable platoon split this year with righties posting an OPS 117 points higher, so matching up against that right-handed Toronto power will be a fun challenge. -- SchoenfieldPlayer in the spotlightRougned Odor:? Odor led the Rangers with 33 home runs and punches that landed on Jose Bautista. He had one of the most distinctive seasons in major league history, however, as he walked only 19 times against 135 strikeouts. Jeff Banister has been hitting him fifth, behind Adrian Beltre, so given Beltres season-long clutch hitting, look for the Jays to pitch to him carefully and go after Odor and his ultra-aggressive approach. -- SchoenfieldWhat will decide tonights gameAmong players to see at least 100 fastballs with similar vertical movement and spin rate to Marco Estradas, Rougned Odors .462 batting average was highest in MLB (12 hits in 26 at-bats). Odors five homers against such pitches were most among second basemen and tied for fourth-most among all players in MLB. --?ESPN Stats & InfoChoosing sides: Who will win? The Toronto Blue Jays spent the night guzzling champagne and celebrating after their dramatic win over the Baltimore Orioles in the wild-card game before flying to Texas for the ALDS. They expended a lot of emotional energy dispatching the Orioles and used Marcus Stroman in the process. Now, all they have to do is beat Cole Hamels, who has a 3.03 ERA in 15 career postseason starts, and the best team in the AL, which happens to be 53-28 at Globe Life Park. -- Jean-Jacques Taylor I dont expect the bad blood to spill over into a 15-round fight between Jose Bautista and Rougned Odor. One, I think Bautista would win in fewer rounds. Two, the two teams should contain their emotions and focus on the game. It should be a tight series, but I look for Toronto to win Game 1 because they have been playing at an intense level to keep their season alive the past couple of weeks while the Rangers possibly could have lost a little rhythm after clinching so early. They also were 4-3 against Texas this season. -- Jim CapleWhere the series standsThe Rangers have the home-field advantage, which could be vital considering their 53-28 record at home (although the road team won four games when this teams met in last years division series). The Rangers would obviously love to take both games at home, but it might be even more imperative given the Game 3 pitching matchup (Colby Lewis versus Aaron Sanchez) favors the Blue Jays.?--?Schoenfield Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
