R Ashwin had already uprooted New Zealands top order on day four; and on the final day he returned to complete what he had begun, by claiming three-more wickets, that helped India complete a comfortable 197-run win in the first Test in Kanpur on Monday. Nick Boyle Jersey .At the start of the final day, India needed six wickets to complete a historic win in their 500th Test, but Luke Ronchi and Mitchell Santner stubbornly stood in their way. The New Zealand duo refused to hand over the early advantage and extended their overnight partnership to 102.Ronchi successfully negotiated Indias spinners on a slow fifth-day pitch, but he lost his concentration in the first over after the drinks break and fell - to a Ravindra Jadeja delivery - for a 120-ball 80. Santner and BJ Watling cautiously negotiated ten overs before Watling was undone by a Mohammad Shami delivery that reverse swung and trapped him lbw. Shami, an over later, uprooted Mark Craigs middle stump.While wickets fell at one end, Santner stood tall at the other. The left hander hit seven fours and two sixes in his 179-ball 71 before Ashwin squared him up, with a delivery that turned and bounced from outside leg stump, and induced an edge to silly point.Ashwin ran through the tail without much fuss and dismissed Ish Sodhi and Neil Warner in quick succession to end with innings figures of 6 for 132 and match figures of 10 for 225 in 66.2 overs.Its a memorable Test, from the second day onwards when New Zealand were batting really well we and Ashwin were chatting how we had to show good resilience to win it. Credit to them, the reason the match went on to the final day was because of the guts they showed, Virat Kohli, Indias captain, said.Williamson said that, despite the loss, there were a number of positives that his side would take home from the first Test. There were a lot of positives throughout the match, hopefully a few lessons as well. India outplayed us though and if we look back there was a two session period where the game slipped away from us, Williamson said.It would have been nice to get closer to the first innings total, and to start off restricting India to 300 on a good batting wicket was good work, (Ronchi and Santner) were both fantastic, particularly today with the ball spinning sharply. The way Santner applied himself with bat and ball and the way Ronchi played coming back into the team was fantastic. Its about recovery for us [in the break, fitness wise]. Cheap Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. Matt Judon Jersey . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. http:///...anny-woodhead-jersey .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup. Detroit manager Brad Ausmus wondered aloud Friday about Michael Fulmers case for the All-Star game. Fulmer didnt make it, but his 9-2 record and 2.11 ERA certainly deserve mentioning.At that pace, hed be in the Cy Young discussion if he kept it up for a year, Ausmus said.For now, Fulmer will have to settle for being a top candidate for American League Rookie of the Year honors. In a season where not everything has gone as planned for the Tigers, hes been perhaps the biggest reason theyre still very much in the mix for a postseason spot. When Detroit acquired Fulmer last year in the deal that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the Mets, the Tigers were hoping he could make a significant impact, but as with many prospects, there was no way to know it would happen so quickly.We saw him in spring for the first time and we knew he had electric stuff. He just had a little command issue in spring, teammate Jordan Zimmermann said. He came up, hes been throwing strikes and now hes got a changeup to go with his fastball and slider that are both `plus pitches. Hes been dominant the whole time. Hes fun to watch.Detroits rotation has been in a tough spot of late because of Zimmermanns injury problems and Anibal Sanchezs ineffectiveness. Fulmer, however, has been outstanding since making his debut in late April. Since May 27, hes made eight starts and gone 6-1, allowing only three earned runs in 50 1/3 innings.A lot of young guys come up and theyre throwers and not really pitchers. They have the velocity but they dont really know where its going, Zimmermann said. I feel like hes got the velocity and knows where its going. Usually the control comes later in your career. It seems like hes got it.Here are a few other rookies who have impressed during the first half of the season:COREY SEAGER and KENTA MAEDA, DODGERSSeager was impressive in a shorter stint with the Dodgers last year, and the talented shortstop has lived up to expectations in 2016, hitting .299 with 17 home runs and 41 RBI heading into Frridays games. Brandon Williams Jersey. .Maeda turned 28 five days after making his major league debut in April. The Dodgers signed him to an incentive-laden, eight-year contract in the hope that his success in Japan would translate to the Los Angeles rotation. Hes done just fine so far, posting a 7-6 record with a 3.07 ERA.TREVOR STORY, ROCKIESStory was quite the phenomenon when he hit seven home runs in his first six big league games back in April. Needless to say, the Colorado shortstops pace has slowed a bit, but his batting line -- .261 with 21 homers and 55 RBI -- is still pretty remarkable for a 23-year-old. A note of caution: Hes also on pace for about 200 strikeouts.Story, Seager and St. Louis Aledmys Diaz have turned this into quite a season for rookie shortstops in the National League.SEUNG HWAN OH, CARDINALSThe 33-year-old South Korea native came to St. Louis with quite a reputation -- he led the Japanese Central League in saves in 2014 and `15 and had earned the nicknames Final Boss and Stone Buddha. Hes already appeared in 43 games for the Cardinals, posting a 1.64 ERA.JUNIOR GUERRA, BREWERSGuerra bounced all over the minors and even played professionally in Italy before finally making his big league debut for the Chicago White Sox at age 30 last year. He pitched only four innings for the White Sox in 2015, and Milwaukee claimed him off waivers in October.The right-hander has come out of nowhere to go 6-1 with a 2.93 ERA in 12 starts for the Brewers this year.NOMAR MAZARA, RANGERSA 21-year-old outfielder playing regularly for a first-place team, Mazara is hitting .284 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI. Mazara was 16 when the Rangers signed the Dominican prospect and gave him a $5 million bonus.
