WASHINGTON -- Davey Johnson isnt shaving his scruffy beard, even after the Washington Nationals finally put on the offensive show he was longing to see. Nike Free Run Womens Sale . Adam LaRoche homered twice and drove in four runs, and the Nationals barrelled past the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 Tuesday night. LaRoche, Tyler Moore and Roger Bernadina connected off Orioles rookie Kevin Gausman (0-2). LaRoche added a solo shot in the eighth off Troy Patton. It added up to Washingtons highest-scoring performance since a 10-3 win over Miami on April 15. The Nationals hadnt scored more than seven runs in 29 games since April 25. The 70-year-old Johnson began growing the beard last week and said he wouldnt shave until the Nationals broke out of their hitting slump. Now it appears he wont shave for fear of jinxing a team on a roll. "It was great," Johnson said of the hitting attack. "Some guys that usually take two or three strikes went up there and hit line drives." And then, fondling his grey beard, he added, "Maybe this is working." Addressing the suddenly hot topic of Johnsons beard, Moore said, "It looks pretty bad, doesnt it? I hope he looks like Santa at the end of the year if we keep winning." Washington built a 7-3 lead in the fourth inning for right-hander Nathan Karns in his major league debut. But Karns couldnt make it out of the fifth. Karns gave up three runs, five hits and two walks in 4 1-3 innings. He was alternatingly sharp and shaky, but decent enough to earn another chance. "Nathan Karns did good, so hes going to come back and pitch Sunday," Johnson said. "I thought he handled himself well. Good start against a good hitting ball club. I know he was nervous but I like the way he went after the hitters." Selected in the 12th round of the 2009 draft, Karns never before pitched above the Double-A level. The 25-year-old was 4-2 with a 4.60 ERA this season in nine starts for Harrisburg of the Eastern League. The start of the game -- and Karns big league debut -- was delayed by rain for 1 hour, 21 minutes. He didnt care. "The rain delay didnt bother me at all," the rookie said. "Now the first one is out of the way I can just build off of that." Zach Duke (1-1) followed Karns with 1 2-3 innings of perfect relief. Chris Davis hit his major-league leading 17th homer for the Orioles, and J.J. Hardy also went deep. But Baltimores franchise-record run of scoring at least five runs in 10 straight road games ended. After allowing four runs in five innings against Toronto last Thursday in his major league debut, the 22-year-old Gausman digressed in his second appearance. The right-hander gave up seven runs and eight hits in four innings with one walk and no strikeouts. Gausman, the No. 4 pick in the 2012 draft, is toting an unsightly 11.00 ERA and opponents are batting .385 against him. "Pitching in the big leagues is hard. Hes got the talent to do it and eventually he will," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "I look forward to it being next time out. He knows mistakes get magnified here. But its part of the process." Washington pulled away with a four-run fourth. LaRoche drew a leadoff walk, Moore hit his second homer in 81 at-bats this season, and Bernadina followed with his first long ball since Sept. 28. "After Bernadina and Moore went deep you want me to shave? I cant shave right now," Johnson said with a grin. With two outs, Denard Span added an RBI double to make it 7-3. Early on, with his fastball hitting 97 mph, Karns retired the side in order in the first inning on three groundouts. "I just wanted to get out there and throw strikes, work with getting the hitters out, and it worked out to my advantage," Karns said. Gausman, in contrast, struggled at the outset. After Span hit a scorching grounder that was gloved by Davis at first base and turned into an out, Steve Lombardozzi and Ryan Zimmerman both singled before LaRoche drove a 2-0 pitch into the centre-field seats. Baltimore closed to 3-1 in the second on an RBI double by Matt Wieters. But with one out and runners on the corners, Karns struck out Yamaico Navarro and Gausman. In the fourth, Davis lined a 1-2 pitch into the Washington bullpen beyond the right-field wall. Two batters later, Hardy homered to left into the Orioles bullpen to knot the score at 3. NOTES: The Nationals played a second straight game without OF Bryce Harper (knee), and Johnson acknowledged, "I probably was being optimistic thinking he could DH over in Baltimore (on Wednesday and Thursday). Its probably not looking good for that." ... Washington 2B Danny Espinosa, who has been sidelined since May 22 with a fractured bone in his right wrist, hopes to return Wednesday. "The strength is fine. Its just the stiffness," Espinosa said. ... The Nationals have homered in 73 straight series,, the longest active streak in the majors. ... Chris Tillman will take the mound for the Orioles on Wednesday night at Camden Yards against Washingtons Jordan Zimmermann, who is seeking his ninth victory. ... Baltimores Nick Markakis had his 12-game hitting streak snapped. Cheap Nike Free Run . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. Nike Free Run . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. http://www.freerunforsalecheap.com/ .R. Smith realized how easily basketball can be taken from him, and he wasnt going to take his place in the NBA for granted anymore. Sydney Kings 92 - 78 NZ BreakersThe NZ Breakers have brought up skipper Mika Vukonas 300th club appearance in the worst possible way, going down 92-78 to the Sydney Kings.Last years NBL runners-up looked off the mark from the first moment in Auckland, as Kings guns Kevin Lisch and new import Josh Powell ran the show.Former NBA champion Powell brought up an impressive 17 points and three rebounds, while star recruit Lisch nailed 14 points.Power forward Greg Whittington also snared 22 points with 70 per cent shooting accuracy in a dominant display. The Breakers struggled to get within 10 points of the Sydney outfit, who look rejuvenated under the guidance of new boss Andrew Gaze.They lost all four quarters and relinquished the ball 17 times after falling behind the eight-ball with an insipid first-quarter.Despite pushing into an early six-point lead, the Breakers fell behind quickly as Lisch, Jason Cadee and Tom Garlepp drained from behind the three-point line.A 23-18 first-quarter scoreline quickly turned into a 14-point buffer in the second before a late Breakers rally sent the sides into the break at 50-42.The Breakers continued to haemorrhage points in the second half, spared only by the excellence of swingman Tom Abercrombie.Abercrombie threw 17 points, including a pair of three-pointers, as his side tried desperately to get back into the match.A closer third quarter, with just two points separating the sides, set the Breakers up for a potentially barnstorming finish at 72-62.New Zealand field goals to Alex Pledger, gun shooting guard Corey Webster and Akil Mitchell brought the margin to seven, but the lethal Whittington and Powell kicked into gear when their side needed them, restoring a 12-point buffer and killing off the match.New Zealand now head to Brisbane to take on the Bullets this weekend, while the Kings gear up for Illawarra at home on Monday.SYDNEY KINGS 92 (Whittington 22, Powell 17, Cadee 15) NEW ZEALAND BREAKERS 78 (Abercrombie 17, Webster 14, Mitchell 13)Melbourne United 78 - 70 Brisbane BulletsMelbourne United has claimed a third straight win in the National Basketball League with a 78-70 victory over the Brisbane Bullets in Melbourne on Thursday night.But the win may come at a price, with captain Chris Gouldding being carried from the court with an ankle problem in the final term. Nike Free Run Shoes Cheap. The home side outscored the Bullets 29-10 in the pivotal second quarter, Goulding providing the spark with three triples and a key steal and veteran big man David Andersen nailing a three-pointer to give Melbourne a 41-26 advantage at the main break.Returning to the NBL after a distinguished career in Europe and the NBA, Andersen played his best game for United with 15 points, four rebounds, three steals and two blocked shots.Goulding finished with 13 points before going down injured.Behind a standout effort from former United player Daniel Kickert (23 points), Brisbane closed the margin to six points in the fourth quarter but key baskets to Ramone Moore and Cedric Jackson ensured victory for United.Former Chicago Bulls forward Cam Bairstow registered 15 points and 9 rebounds in 18 minutes for the Bullets as he plays his way back from a shoulder injury.Melbourne coach Dean Demopoulos was pleased with the way his side responded after losing their captain with eight minutes left in the match.As a group, our collective energy was really positive, he said.?Its something we work on ... today it happened to work for us and we absorbed the loss of Chris and kept going.Demopoulos was unsure of the severity of Gouldings injury with a home clash against Perth looming on Sunday.We feel real bad about Chris ... hopefully its not too long.Brisbane coach Andrej Lemanis saw plenty of positives in his teams performance apart from a damaging second quarter from United.I think we are still a new team that hasnt played together before, he said.As a result when things get going against us a little bit, we still havent found our identity to stop the momentum before it kind of gets out of control as it did tonight.We lost one quarter in the game, we got smashed in that quarter and thats the one right now that we have got to be able to work our way through.The Bullets will next face the New Zealand Breakers at home on Saturday night.MELBOURNE UNITED 78?(Andersen, Moore 15, Jackson 14) BRISBANE BULLETS 70?(Kickert 23, Bairstow 15, Beal 8) 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 ' ' '
