Derbyshire 199 for 6 (Madsen 76) trail Leicestershire 380 (Eckersley 117*, Parkinson 4-90) by 181 runs Scorecard Many county bowling attacks have suffered at the hands of Wayne Madsen over the years, but none more so than Leicestershires since the likeable South African made his first appearance in the County Championship back in 2009. Cheap Knicks Jerseys Authentic .Madsen was at it again on the second day of this Division Two match. His innings of 76 not only held the Derbyshire first innings together, just about, it saw him pass both 9,000 career first-class runs and 1,000 against Leicestershire. The only surprise, as far as Leicestershire supporters were concerned, was seeing Madsen attempt to pull a Charlie Shreck bouncer and top edge a catch into the leg side.Leicestershires first innings 380 was built on a first century of the season for Ned Eckersley. Resuming on 300 for 7, Eckersley and Ben Raine extended their eighth wicket partnership to 58 before the left-handed Raine was tempted into driving at a wide delivery from Alex Hughes, and was well caught off the outside edge by wicket-keeper Alex Mellor, standing up to Hughes medium-pace.Richard Jones played over a straight ball from very occasional offspinner Neil Broom, at which point Eckersley was in danger of being stranded on 99 - the more so because Leicestershire No. 11 Charlie Shreck came to the wicket having scored no runs at all in any of his previous seven innings.Shreck kept out what remained of Brooms over, however, and in the following over Eckersley steered left-armer Callum Parkinson into the off side for the runs he need to go to his century, which came off 223 balls and included nine fours.Shreck was left not out, again without scoring, when Eckersley, on 117, went down the wicket and tried to loft Callum Parkinson to long-on, but could not clear Derbyshire captain Billy Godleman. The 19-year-old Parkinson, making his first-class debut, finished with 4 for 90 from 33.4 overs.Derbyshire lost their first three batsmen with just 40 on the board, with all three having their off-stump knocked out of the ground. Godleman had only himself to blame, shouldering arms to a Clint McKay inswinger, but Ben Slater and Chesney Hughes both received superb deliveries that straightened off the seam from Ben Raine.Madsen has been consistency personified this season however, coming into the match having scored 860 championship runs at an average of over 60, and the right-hander hit eight fours in going to his 50 off 71 balls.Broom looked less secure, and had already played across the line on a couple of occasions when clipping Shrecks outswingers through the leg side when he got a leading edge attempting the shot again, and was well caught by Raine running back from mid-on for 33.Madsen may have been fortunate to survive a leg before shout to the following ball, but McKay returned to pick up the wicket of Shiv Thakor, pinning the former Leicestershire allrounder leg before to his third delivery.The evening session was a different story. Madsen and Alex Hughes battled away, at least until Madsens rush of blood, and Hughes and Mellor, making his first class debut, saw the visitors to the close without further loss.

The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay mapped out his expectations for the 2016 season Tuesday.He believes the offense will have to hold its own until the defense gets healthy. He expects franchise quarterback Andrew Luck to take fewer hits. And, of course, he thinks Indy should still be playing after Jan. 1.We all sit here wondering what will be the development of this team -- who will the Colts be? Irsay said, explaining a long-term vision just before four Colts players and four pro golfers teed off for a 3-hole golf tournament at the team complex. Im optimistic. I believe we can get to the top of Mount Everest and we can plant that Colts flag.Its a bold mission for a team that stumbled to 8-8 in 2015, missing the playoffs after starting the year as a trendy Super Bowl pick.And Irsay is betting big hes right.In January, he re-signed coach Chuck Pagano and extended general manager Ryan Grigsons contract. Both deals run through 2019.On draft weekend, Irsay stood by Grigsons side and supported the notion of using four of eight draft picks on offensive linemen, including first-round selection Ryan Kelly.In June, Irsay again ponied up, re-signing Luck to a $140 million deal that makes him the highest-paid player in league history.What the Colts must do now is prove they were wise investments.We tried to have a tougher camp so we could have a tougher team, Irsay said. This is the Indianapolis Colts and my expectation is that we will be playing in January in the playoffs.Irsay looked right at home on the golf course designed by his neighbors, Pete and Alice Dye, as he stared across the complexs signature island hole. It was a design Dye borrowed from the TPC coursse at Sawgrass. Wholesale Knicks Jerseys. Both Dyes hung around to watch Kelly, tight end Dwayne Allen, punter Pat McAfee and kicker Adam Vinatieri team up with three players competing in this weekends BMW Championship at nearby Crooked Stick Golf Course.Irsay donated $50,000 to Autism Speaks and $25,000 to The First Tee of Indiana, then kicked in another $25,000 to each group when Vinatieris blind 220-yard shot stayed on the island hole green. Holmes and Vinatieri won in a playoff. Irsay also agreed to donate another $30,000 in Marc Leishmans name.But with Sundays season opener against Detroit nearing, it didnt take long for the conversation to turn to football.We have to go out and reprove ourselves, Irsay said. People are wondering who are they, who are these Colts? Are they a 7-9 team that needs more help or are they a team with a good mix of veterans and young guys who can go out and win the division?Once again, Irsay made it clear that the top priority is taking care of Luck.With the influx of rookie lineman and the hiring of former Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, Irsay is convinced the offensive line will be improved this season though he was concerned after Luck was sacked three times and hit three more times by Philadelphia in a preseason dress rehearsal.The real test comes Sunday.Youve got to take care of business, you just have to, Irsay said.
