CROMWELL, Conn. Cheap MLB Jerseys From China . -- If you just quickly glance at?Daniel Bergers recent results table, it might seem like hes carried momentum from his first career victory into a three-stroke lead after?three rounds here at the Travelers Championship.After all, that triumph at the FedEx St. Jude Classic was just three starts ago, so its only natural to infer that this weeks performance is simply a continuation of that success.That presumption couldnt be further from the truth.It was during Bergers win in Memphis that he strained his left shoulder. He doesnt know how, or even when. But he knows it started to hurt him that week. He played through it, claimed the trophy, then played the next weeks U.S. Open, making the cut, though finishing well out of contention.Two weeks later, the shoulder still hurting, he withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, then flew to New York for an MRI.The good news was that it wasnt a serious injury; there was no tear or structural damage. The bad news was that it was in a sensitive spot and didnt seem to be healing quickly.Every single week Im like, all right, Im going to play this week and Im chipping and putting, but I wasnt hitting any balls, he said. [Then] three days before the tournament, Im like, all right, still cant hit balls, probably not a good idea to go play, and had to pull out of the British [Open], which sucked. But I feel like Ive done everything right to this point, so to be here right now has kind of been part of my plan.Where he is right now is leading by three over a trio of contenders -- Russell Knox,?Tyrone van Aswegen?and Russell Henley -- in search of his second victory in four starts, without any palpable momentum in between them.Berger maintained that during competition the shoulder injury isnt still hurting him, though admitted it does afterward.Tonight itll definitely be sore, and Ill ice and get some treatment, he said after his third-round 62.Thats right: 62.Already in contention, Berger stepped on the gas pedal Saturday, dropping nine birdies against just a single bogey.Posting a score just two shy of the course record would be impressive for any player, but its especially impressive for a guy who hasnt played much golf over the past few months and is still dealing with that bothersome shoulder.Ive never played a golf tournament in my life injured, but I talked to some of the other guys, and Jerry Kelly told me in his 600 starts, more than half of them he was feeling bad, said Berger. I guess youve got to learn to play hurt a little bit, obviously, if youre not going to hurt it anymore. But it feels great this week and if I do the right things, then hopefully its gone forever.He has more motivation than just recovering from the injury.A win would likely move Berger from 18th in the United States Ryder Cup standings to 12th, within striking distance of the eight automatic roster spots for this years team. He wants to reach that goal for the obvious reasons, sure, but theres another one that is keeping him inspired, too.His father, Jay, twice represented the U.S. in the Davis Cup -- tennis closest competition to the Ryder Cup. He won a singles match in both 1988 and 1990, helping his country win the title in the second of those years.I think that would be pretty cool to have father and son play Davis Cup and Ryder Cup, said the younger Berger. So thats one of my goals. But if its not this year then Ill look toward the next one, but I know Ill be great in that environment and Ill be tough to beat, whoever Mr. Clarke put up against me.He wont even need any momentum.As Berger is showing this week, even coming off an injury, hes been able to pick up right where he left off beforehand.

LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Oregon opened the Maui Invitational with a disappointing loss, won in overtime and closed with a click-on-all-cylinders win.Winning the tournament was the goal, but getting better with each game wasnt a bad consolation.Chris Boucher scored 21 points, Tyler Dorsey added 19 and No. 13 Oregon beat Connecticut 79-69 on Wednesday in the fifth-place game of the Maui Invitational.Obviously, we still have a lot of stuff we need to work on offensively and defensively, but I think we took a step, said Oregon forward Jordan Bell, who had 12 points. I think every game we got a little better.Oregon (4-2) lost its opener to Georgetown, but bounced back with an overtime victory over Tennessee on Dillon Brooks long 3-pointer. The Ducks wanted to get off to a fast start in their Maui finale and did just that, racing to a 15-point lead in the opening 4 1/2 minutes.UConn (2-4) chipped into the lead by halftime, but the Ducks started flying again, building the lead back up to 17.Dylan Ennis added 15 points for Oregon, which shot 54 percent and made 9 of 21 from 3-point range.Jalen Adams led the Huskies with 27 points and Rodney Purvis added 13.Comes down to fundamentals: play defense and execute on offense, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. I dont know what else to say. Energy and youve got to play defense. They made shots and we didnt make shots. Simple game. Theres no secret to it.The Ducks attacked the Huskies from the opening tip, scoring the games first 10 points, racing out to an 18-point lead.Ollie called a timeout 41 seconds into the game and Adams, the Huskies leading scorer, headed to the bench at 17:03 after picking up his second foul.I dont think we were just playing with the intensity we should have, Adams said. We didnt match their intensity or their energy and I think we have to work on that. Weve got to build on that.Oregon pushed the lead to 21, but the Huskies came roaring back.UConn started hitting shots it was missing earlier, while the Ducks went more than 8 minutes without a field goal, trimming the lead to 339-28 by halftime. NFL Jerseys Wholesale. Oregon revved up again to start the second half, hitting 5 of its first 7 shots to push the lead to 53-34.UConn had one more run. The Huskies whittled away at the lead and got it down to eight with 3 minutes left, but couldnt make up any more ground.I just thought our energy level today was much better because of the ball movement and getting some shots down, Oregon coach Dana Altman said.BIG PICTUREOregon finished the Maui Invitational with a flourish after a dud of a start. The Ducks should get better as Brooks, their leader, builds up stamina in his return from offseason foot surgery.UConns young team is still trying to gel. The Huskies struggled against Oklahoma States pressure in the opener, Chaminades perimeter shooting the next game and the Ducks flock of athletes in the finale.BROOKS PROGRESSIONBrooks was limited to eight points in 13 minutes in Oregons opener against Georgetown, his first game back since offseason foot surgery.The preseason All-America was back to his Duck-leading role against Tennessee in the second round, scoring 17 points and hitting the game-winning 3-pointer with 22 seconds left in overtime.Brooks was limited to nine points in 18 minutes Wednesday, but did all the little things the Ducks need, like playing defense, distributing the ball -- five assists -- and providing leadership.LARRIER OUTUConn announced Wednesday that sophomore forward Terry Larrier will miss the rest of the season with a torn left ACL.Larrier was injured Monday night against Oklahoma State while driving to the basket. Hes expected to be out eight months.UConn was expecting a big contribution from the 6-foot-8 Larrier, who sat out last season after transferring from Virginia Commonwealth.UP NEXTUConn hosts Boston University on Nov. 30.Oregon hosts Boise State on Monday.---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-Top25 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 ' ' '
