Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork. Marc Staal Rangers Jersey .com) - Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez will return for a fifth season in 2015. Gonzalezs job status had come into question when general manager Frank Wren was fired in late September after the Braves had been officially eliminated from playoff contention with a late-season swoon. Interim general manager John Hart made the decision to keep Gonzalez on Friday. The Braves were tied for first place at the All-Star break and still in the hunt for a wild-card berth heading into the final month, but a 7-18 mark in September left them with a disappointing record of 79-83. Gonzalez is under contract through the 2015 campaign. He has a record of 358-290 with a pair of playoff appearances in four seasons since replacing Bobby Cox in the Atlanta dugout. The Braves lost in the wild-card game after the 2012 season and last year won the National League East before falling in the Division Series. Gonzalez previously managed the Marlins from 2007-10 and has a career managerial record of 634-569 in eight seasons. The Braves on Friday also named former Astros manager Bo Porter as the teams third base coach. Porter was fired on Sept. 1 in his second season as Houstons skipper. He was the third base coach under Gonzalez with the Marlins. Porter will replace Doug Dascenzo as third base coach. Assistant hitting coach Scott Fletcher will also not return. Hitting coach Greg Walker had previously announced his resignation after the season. The remainder of the Braves staff, including pitching coach Roger McDowell, bench coach Carlos Tosca, first base coach Terry Pendleton and bullpen coach Eddie Perez, will return for 2015. Adam Clendening Rangers Jersey Authentic .

Chris Jones followed Roziers lead by sinking a few more from long range while contributing to the kind of defensive performance coach Rick Pitino wanted. Nothing like a shakeup to make things happen. Jones came off the bench to score 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and the No. 9 Cardinals bounced back from their first loss to roll past Southern Mississippi 69-38 Friday night. Five days after a lacklustre effort in a 93-84 loss to North Carolina, the Cardinals (6-1) were better on both ends with the help of two new starters. Freshman guard Rozier got things going offensively by making his first three from beyond the arc en route to nine points, while 6-foot-10 redshirt freshman centre Mangok Mathiang had seven rebounds and three blocks. "For a freshman to get a start, it builds my confidence up," said Rozier, who added three assists in 19 minutes. Added Jones, "Im happy for him. He deserved it." Jones made 4 of 7 from long range and 5 of 10 overall. Louisville shot 23 of 55 (42 per cent) and matched a season high with 12 3-pointers on 31 attempts. The Cardinals trademark pressure defence forced 22 turnovers and stifled the Golden Eagles (6-1) at the start of both halves, holding them scoreless for more than 12 combined minutes. USMs total points set a season low for a Louisville opponent. "That was a tail whipping," USM coach Donnie Tyndall said. "Their team was obviously better coached and more prepared than our team. I say that sincerely and I mean it." Louisville senior guard Russ Smith scored his 11 points in the second half. Forward Montrezl Harrell also scored 11 with nine rebounds. Louisville outrebounded Southern Mississippi 38-33, scored 21 points off turnovers and made 16 assists. Michael Craigs nine points led the Golden Eagles, who shot 13 of 45 from the field (29 per cent). The Cardinals had nowhere to go but up after losing to the Tar Heels in a game marked by bad shots against the zone and frequent defensiive breakdowns. Chris Kreider Rangers Jersey. . A hard week of practice followed and Pitino changed his starting lineup, inserting Rozier into Jones starting spot with Mathiang supplanting Stephan Van Treese in the middle. "I dont really dont care who starts but I was doing it because I wanted to get Terry some confidence," Pitino said. "He wasnt playing the way the Terry Rozier Ive seen in practice. I just wanted to get him some early minutes and getting him feeling good about himself. It was nothing anybody did wrong." It took just 21 seconds for the moves to start paying off as Rozier buried the first of back-to-back 3-pointers followed by Mathiangs jumper off the glass as Louisville scored the first 13 points over 5:02. Though 5-of-9 shooting helped, improved ball movement against the Golden Eagles zone set up those chances as the patient Cardinals worked it around, inside and out in recording 12 assists, more than they had in both of the past two games. Though the Cardinals good shooting cooled off to 12 of 29 (41 per cent) by halftime as Louisville attempted 17 from beyond the arc, the opportunities were there and Jones came off the bench to sink of 2 of 3. Left out of the early fun were Smith -- who had 36 points in Sundays loss -- and Hancock, whose combined 0-for-8 start from long range left them scoreless at the break. Hancock finished with five points while Smith hit 5 of 8 from the field. "It was one of those games where the defence decides whether or not Im going to score," Smith said. "They didnt want me to score and I wasnt going to take any bad shots." More impressive was Louisvilles defensive energy that Pitino compared to last years championship team. The Cardinals held Southern Mississippi scoreless for the first 5:30 of the game and the initial 6:54 of the second half, paving the way for the kind of performance Pitino hopes will become a habit. "We want to play how we did last season," the coach said. "Last year we played about 70 per cent man(-to-man), and that is what we did tonight. It confuses people and gets them out of rhythm. "I want to continue that." 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 Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
