|Ryan Kalil was convinced he was done with football Cody Ford Jersey , and getting down to 260 pounds made it likely he was.But it only took until March to start having second thoughts about his retirement.as he fills in a huge hole by coming back to play center for them, after signing a one-year, $8.4 million contract to play again after 12 years with the Panthers.“I want to apologize to anybody publicly or behind closed doors that I criticized for retiring and then coming back,” Kalil said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. “I totally understand it now. I totally get it. . . .“I had a hard time moving on, I had a hard time turning the page. I think most players go through this, but especially coming off 2018. [I was] healthy, feeling great, feeling spry. I just felt like I had more football in me.”Kalil started lifting weights and working out in earnest in March Devin Singletary Jersey , and said he was back to 297 pounds.“I feel like I’m in great shape,” Kalil said. “Football shape, I’m going to need a little time for that.”The Jets are willing to give him time to work back into training camp shape, because they know he can be such an important resource for the line in general and quarterback Sam Darnold in particular. Matt Duffy saved his best for last.
Duffy’s ground ball found a hole between third and short with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday and drove in the game’s only run in Tampa Bay’s win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
”After seeing that many zeroes, it’s definitely awesome to come out on top in that game,” Duffy said after a game in which eight pitchers gave up a total of 10 hits.
Duffy drove in Mallex Smith, who doubled with one out and moved to third base on a groundout.
Diego Castillo (1-0) got his first major league win after pitching two innings of relief.
Ryan Tepera (3-2) pitched the final 1 2/3 innings for the Jays, who were swept in the three-game series and have lost five of six to the Rays this season. It was the 12th time the Blue Jays have scored one run or none this season, and the first time since August 2011 they were held without an extra-base hit for a second straight game.
”I have no explanation for it. It’s the way it is,” Toronto manager John Gibbons said.
Curtis Granderson had the first three of Toronto’s five hits Dawson Knox Jersey , leadoff singles in the first, third and fifth innings, and was the only runner to reach third base until Smith in the ninth.
With two outs in the Toronto ninth, Aldemys Diaz hit a line drive off Castillo that was caught by left fielder Johnny Field near the top of the wall, the best-hit ball of the game by far.
”Luckily, I was playing deep and it was high enough that it didn’t seem like one of those no-doubters off the bat,” Field said. ”He got under it just enough to give me a chance to get back there.”
Toronto starter J.A. Happ allowed one hit and three walks in five innings. He was lifted after throwing 98 pitches, 30 in the first inning.
”I try to give credit where credit is due. I thought they did a good job of fouling some good pitches off,” said Happ. ”They made it difficult. Certainly, I’d like to go more than five innings Brian Burns Jersey , but I was happy to keep them off the board.”
Rays starter Wilmer Font gave up two hits in 3 1/3 innings, and Matt Andriese gave up two hits in 3 2/3 innings.
”That’s two days in a row now that the bullpen came in and really picked us up in a big way,” said Rays manager Kevin Cash. ”They pieced it together really well.”
