OAKLAND, Calif. - Jordan Lyles was more nervous watching the last two innings than he was pitching the first seven. He finally relaxed after Chia-Jen Lo got the final out. Lyles won for the first time in nearly two months, Brandon Barnes doubled twice and drove in two runs, and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-4 Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak. "It was nerve-racking in here watching the game," Lyles said. "Me and a few other guys were going a little crazy. Its way more nerve-racking to watch a game youve pitched in than to be out there." Lyles had to wait out a possible game-winning home run before he could breathe easy. With a runner on first base in the ninth, Chris Young hit an 0-1 pitch from Lo down the left field line. The ball curved just outside the foul pole and third base umpire Doug Eddings immediately ruled it foul. After As manager Bob Melvin came out to argue the call, the four umpires went underneath the stands to review the play before confirming the original ruling. "I was able to see it a couple times on replay and knew we were OK," Lyles said. Juan Castro singled in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games, scored a run and added a sacrifice fly for Houston. Matt Dominguez added two hits, including one of four doubles off As starter Bartolo Colon, who lost in his second bid to become the first pitcher in major league history to win 15 games with four American League teams. "I knew if the ball goes foul, we had a chance to win," Barnes said. "Any time you put up a good game, beat up the starting pitcher a little bit and get into the bullpen, you have a chance." The Astros had dropped 11 of the first 12 games this season between the division rivals before knocking Colon (14-5) out of the game early and holding off a late rally. "The first couple of times we faced him we were still trying to figure him out," Barnes said. "It definitely helped to have seen him before." Lyles (5-6) sailed through his first career appearance against the As. He gave up five hits, allowed only one runner past second base and got Oakland to ground into two double plays. That ended an eight-start winless skid for the Houston right-hander, who had been 0-5 since his last victory on June 18. "Its been awhile for me personally," Lyles said. "It was nice to get seven innings. I havent done that for a while. Overall I was attacking the zone, keeping the ball down." Houstons bullpen made Lyles sweat it out. Lo recorded the final four outs for his first career save. Barnes got into a lengthy battle with Colon in the second before doubling in Castro and Dominguez to put the Astros up 2-0. After Castro and former As first baseman Chris Carter drove in runs in the third, Barnes doubled again leading off the fourth and scored on a double play to make it 5-0. NOTES: Eight of Houstons nine starters had at least one hit. ... Castro returned to the Astros lineup after sitting out two games with a hip injury. ... The Astros sent RHP Jorge DeLeon to Triple-A Oklahoma City after the game and recalled IF Marwin Gonzalez. ... Barnes was 3 for 27 entering the night. Wil Myers Jersey . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. Johnny Manziel Jersey . LUCIE, Fla. http://www.padressale.com/padres-trevor-hoffman-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. Austin Hedges Jersey . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. Greg Garcia Jersey . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. It was December 19th, 2015, when Deb Schelebo introduced herself to the group. I was born with a heart murmur, she said. It eventually led to a diagnosis of severe aortic stenosis when I passed out after a series of double-under attempts. My big dilemma now is sitting quietly for the mid-January surgery, and what type of valve to use.Schelebo, 56, a member at CrossFit 380 in McKinney, Texas, couldnt believe the responses she got from her post in the I Heart CrossFit Facebook group. After a warm and rousing welcome, the members offered her advice and input on the pros and cons of mechanical, bovine and pig valves, and assured her that whichever she chose, she could and would not only recover, but also return to CrossFit.The group gave me the confidence I needed to go forward with my surgery, Schelebo says. It was extraordinarily helpful to have these people to talk to. They were total strangers, but they had gone through the same thing I was going through and had their chests cracked open. It was amazing to know they were CrossFitters like me and they were all able to go back to it.The CrossFit community is what separates it from other forms of fitness training. Naysayers call it cultish, but those who within it thrive on the support. The I Heart CrossFit group, started by D.J. Forsyth, a CrossFit Games regional competitor and owner of CrossFit PRx in Spring, Texas, is an online extension of a subset of that community.Forsyth had his faulty aortic valve replaced with a mechanical one in December of 2013. Terrified he would never be able to CrossFit again, he Googled CrossFit and OHS. After sifting through hundreds of search results on how to improve his overhead squat, Forsyth came across a 2012 espnW story on Ingrid Kantola, a fellow regional competitor and owner of CrossFit Jaakaru in nearby Austin. Kantola had open-heart surgery in May of 2010 to repair damage done to her heart by endocarditis, an infection that literally shredded her mitral valve. But because Kantolas zipper scar runs horizontally under her sports bra line, as opposed to the more customary -- and more visible -- vertical scar, Forsyth never knew. He reached out on Facebook, and the two became fast friends.With many pep-talks from Kantola, Forsyth made a speedier-than-most recovery and competed in the CrossFit open in March of 2014, when a story about him appeared on CrossFits official website. He began receiving Facebook messages from CrossFitters across the country who were also dealing with heart problems. He started the group, added the eight CrossFitters who had messaged him to it, and described it as a little group of us that have had or might one day need to have heart surgery.The group is no longer so little. There are now 81 members, stretching from Australia to Austin. Each member has had or is waiting to have open-heart surgery. And each one is a CrossFitter.Young, active people like us are not the typical demographic for heart surgery, Forsyth says. Its so cool to watch our group grow and see people communicate on thhere and help each other.ddddddddddddne of those members is Asha Purohit, 27, of CrossFit Soda City in Columbia, South Carolina. Purohit had always known she had a bicuspid aortic valve, but didnt develop symptoms until the age of 25.?During the summer of 2014, Purohit developed pain in her neck and jaw and began to feel out of breath and faint. She was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm (an enlargement of the aorta) and underwent open-heart surgery in August of 2014.Shortly after, she found the I Heart CrossFit group where she, too, told her story. Purohit became so comfortable with the group that when she had a bout with pericarditis (an inflammation of the tissue around her heart) a few months after surgery, she turned immediately to I Heart CrossFit. The first thing I did when I got the diagnosis was get on the Facebook group, she says. I felt defeated and I didnt know what to do, and I knew they would understand in a way no one else would, because theyve all been there in some way or another.Like most of the CrossFitters in the group, Purohit got conflicting information from doctors as to whether she could or should continue her CrossFit training after her surgery. But Dr. John Ikonomidis, her cardiac surgeon at the Medical University of South Carolina, assured her that they did the surgery so she could live without restrictions and gave her the all-clear three months after the operation.The conservative treatment stance with regard to activity thats voiced by some cardiologists is not entirely inappropriate, but having said this, I honestly think its safe for Asha to continue, Ikonomidis said. The heart itself is undamaged from the operation and the heart muscle still responds the same way to exercise.And so does the mind. The confidence that comes from being able to complete workouts that the open-heart surgery survivors did before surgery is energizing and empowering -- and doubly so when they begin making improvements on their pre-surgery benchmarks. Members of the group proudly share their triumphs, and whenever members have setbacks or questions, the group is always there.They discuss how much weight to lift overhead and how to keep power cleans from irritating a still-healing incision. They post photos of their zipper scars and their squat positions. They float questions to the group. Can I get a tattoo while on blood thinners? (Not advisable; infection is a bigger risk than bleeding). How do I monitor the size of a bruise? (Circle it with a Sharpie so you can see if it gets bigger.) Is it OK to hold your breath on heavy lifts? (Yes, but dont go crazy.) They donate to each others fundraisers and created an I Heart CrossFit t-shirt for the group. And they share videos of their check-up echocardiograms, so the other members can see and hear the beating of their hearts.Were all just saying, Hey! Check out my heart, says Schelebo. Because we are all still alive. ' ' '
