KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Raul Mondesi celebrates his 21st birthday Wednesday and almost certainly will be in the Kansas City Royals lineup for the season series finale against the Los Angeles Angels.The 2015 World Series champion Royals should also celebrate that they wont have to play the Angels again this year after Wednesday. They are 0-5 against the Anaheim club. The Royals won five of six last year from the Angels and swept the Angels in the 2014 ALDS, but this is a different club.The Royals want to take an extended look at Mondesi, who was their top prospect in the minors, the rest of the season.Time to bring him up, Royals manager Ned Yost said. Weve been getting spotty offensive production out of that second base spot. You know hes a tremendously rangy kid. He has tremendous range, strong arm, good athletic instincts.Entering the game Tuesday, the Royals had started three different players at second base -- Omar Infante, 38 games, Whit Merrifield, 38, and Christian Colon, 22. They had combined for a .629 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, which ranked last in the majors. They hit .247 with 20 doubles, two triples and two home runs with 29 RBI in the first 98 games. They owned a .298 on-base percentage and a .331 slugging percentage.If the Royals had not acquired Ben Zobrist at the trading deadline last July, they probably would not have won the World Series. Zobrist, however, bolted for the Chicago Cubs after the season.While Mondesi played mostly shortstop in the minors, he will play primarily second base the remainder of the season with Alcides Escobar remaining at shortstop.Hes a guy thats going to be part of our organization for years and years to come, Yost said. Hes just beginning his tenure. We feel like hes ready and we want him to come up and get some valuable experience.The Royals will start left-hander Danny Duffy for the series finale Wednesday. Duffy has been the Royals most dependable starter lately, winning his past five decisions after starting the year in the bullpen.In his past 36 innings, he has struck out 34 and walked only four. His 8.50 strikeouts-to-walks ratio since June 27 ranks the best in the American League.The Angels will counter with right-hander Matt Shoemaker, who is 5-10 with a 3.99 ERA. He has made seven starts this season when he has allowed two runs or less without getting a win. That includes his prior start, yielding two runs on five hits and one walk with five strikeouts in a 6-2 loss at Houston.Left-hander Tyler Skaggs was impressive in his first big league start since July 31, 2014, and undergoing Tommy John surgery. He threw seven scoreless innings and allowed three singles as the Angels routed the Royals 13-0. Skaggs threw only 88 pitches, 63 for strikes.He had seven strong innings and (was) very pitch-efficient, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.The Angels can only imagine what a healthy Skaggs would have meant to their rotation for the past 18 months.It was a long one, to say the least, Skaggs said of the rehabilitation process. There were a lot of trials and tribulations. I think its made me stronger mentally. Im looking forward to the rest of the season. Fake Mets Jerseys . LOUIS -- St. New York Mets Gear . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. https://www.cheapmetsjerseys.us/ . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds."

Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club.ATHENS, Ga. -- Annie Park brought more than great skills to Southern Californias womens golf team. The bubbly freshman from Levittown, N.Y., also showed her new teammates how to enjoy their time on the course and ignore the pressure. "I think she helped loosen up the team in general, which is important," senior Sophia Popov said. "Youve got to have fun out there. You can always rely on her. You can say that." Park shot a 1-under 71 to top the individual standings and help Southern California win its third NCAA tournament title with a record-setting team performance Friday. Southern California finished at 19-under 1,133 -- 15 strokes better than the previous tournament mark set by UCLA in 2004 -- to beat second-place Duke by 21 strokes at the University of Georgia Golf Course. Third-place Purdue was 21 over -- 40 shots behind Southern California. Park finished at 10 under for a six-stroke victory over Dukes Lindy Duncan. Kyung Kim and Popov tied for sixth at 1 over for Southern California, which finished second to Alabama last year by one shot. Park was in high school when Southern California had a five-stroke lead vanish on the back nine last year in Franklin, Tenn. Entering the Pac-12 tournament last month in Los Angeles, Park wasnt sure what to think of her game. She had one victory and three other top-10 finishes in six events, but was 27th the week before at Arizona State. Not only did Park win the Pac-12, she also tied for first two weeks later at the West Regional. Even so, she hardly imagined leaving Athens as the NCAA champion. "It was unexpected," Park said. "I was just trying to play my best in each round and shot. It turned out to be good." Alabama junior Stephanie Meadow endured a different kind of day in the swirling wind.dddddddddddd. Despite leading the nation this season with a 71.1 scoring average and beginning the final round just two strokes off the lead, Meadow fell out contention with a double bogey on the par-4 ninth hole. Meadow, the tournaments top seed, finished with an 80 to tie for sixth at 1 over. "I dont really know what happened today," Meadow said. "I just kind of fell off the map and once it went, it went. Its hard to come back when youre going through that emotionally, but its something Ive got to learn from because theres going to be days in the future when I do this. It wont be the last time I shoot 80." Park became the seventh freshman to win the individual title, joining a group that includes Annika Sorenstam of Arizona in 1991, Vicki Goetze of Georgia in 1992 and Austin Ernst of LSU in 2011. Southern Cal assistant coach Justin Silverstein cited Parks ability to block out distractions as a strength not seen often in freshmen. "Theres no change in emotion if she makes three birdies in a row or a couple bogeys," Silverstein said. "Her ability to miss it in the proper spots is something you rarely see from an 18-year-old and an ability to do that on a golf course this hard is what kind of what separates people like her from the rest of the pack." Under head coach Andrea Gaston, the Trojans also won national titles in 2003 and 2008. "I just saw so much fight in these girls," Gaston said. "We had some tough holes and we fought back and made some birdies to bring our scores back. I think the most impressive thing is it was a team victory. All of them counted at least twice this week."
