Blog Entry: LOUDON, N. Urh Nike 2018 .H. -- Rick Hendrick does not believe the concussion symptoms suffered by Dale Earnhardt Jr. will end the career of the sports most popular driver.Earnhardt, who announced Thursday he could not race this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway because of the symptoms, missed two races in 2012 because of concussions.The 41-year-old Earnhardt believes crashes June 12 at Michigan and July 2 at Daytona possibly caused the symptoms, which he initially thought were from severe allergies or a sinus infection.He and I talked about years beyond next year just around Daytona, Hendrick said Sunday afternoon at NHMS, referring to Earnhardts contract, which ends in 2017. If there was something major wrong, I think they would have seen it already.Im very hopeful and hes very hopeful. I think the doctors want to err on the side of being sure. We want him for a long time.Alex Bowman replaced Earnhardt at New Hampshire and had a solid day ruined when he hit the wall late and finished 26th. He was running in the top-10 when he had contact on a restart at lap 269. Four laps later, a fender rubbing a tire as a result of the contact ended up in a flat and a crashed into the wall.Im really disappointed to end our day that way but we showed we were a top-10 car all day long, said Bowman, whose career-best in 72 Sprint Cup starts is 13th. It was the first time Ive really run top-10 in a Cup car. We made a lot of progress this weekend. It is by far my worst race track, so to come here with these guys and run that well just shows what a great piece they bring to the race track.Jeff Gordon will come out of retirement?to replace Earnhardt if he cannot compete July 22-24 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Hendrick said that Gordon, a four-time Cup champion who moved from racing to the Fox Sports booth after last season, could do more races.Hopefully Dale is going to be back next week and its not even something we think is going to happen, Hendrick said. Jeff is a team player and wants to support the organization, and Im sure hell do whatever he has to do.Hendrick said he was busy lining up an ear, nose and throat doctor for Earnhardt last week before Earnhardts visit to the neurologist indicated he should sit out the New Hampshire race.Hes running through a bunch of tests, and hes going to have some more tests the first of the week, Hendrick said. Hes doing good. He wants to be in the car. The doctors are going to tell him when its OK for him to be back.I know hes anxious, and we want him back as soon as the doctors give clearance.Hendrick said he didnt notice anything about Earnhardt that would indicate he was suffering from a concussion after the Michigan race. He said he doesnt know if any of his drivers are hurt unless they tell him, and the first he heard of the symptoms was last week. He said he believes the drivers do the right thing and let the teams know if they are hurting.Ive had enough sinus infections, and when youre taking medication for that, you dont feel 100 percent, Hendrick said. That was it.For Earnhardt to be eligible for a Chase for the Sprint Cup berth, he would need a waiver to have missed a race during the regular season. It is expected he would get one, but Hendrick said he hasnt even applied for one yet, as the focus remains on Earnhardts health.By missing the race, Earnhardt dropped from 14th to 16th in the Chase-qualifying standings, with his cushion on the first driver outside the provisional Chase cutoff,?Trevor Bayne, dropping from 32 points to 14 points.Hes kind of an iron man -- he doesnt want to let the team down, he doesnt want to let his fans down, Hendrick said. We need him for the long pull. He wants to be in the car. But the best thing the doctors can do is go through all the protocol and do all the tests, and theres a bunch of tests.When they say, Youre good to go, hell be back.The team already had Bowman in place as a backup for New Hampshire and stuck with that plan to keep him as the full substitute driver. Gordon, who is still an equity owner in Hendrick Motorsports, was in France last week when Hendrick called him.He thought I was kidding at first, Hendrick said. He was on vacation and I asked him what he was doing and he said, Ill be in Indy. ... I said, Bring your drivers uniform just in case.He said, Are you kidding? I said, No, Im serious.

Nike Air Presto Solde . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. SEATTLE -- Scooter Gennett kept watching and wondering if the pitch he didnt think he hit that well just might carry far enough. Getting an assist from Seattle right fielder Michael Morse certainly helped. "Us little guys need all the help we can get," Gennett said. Gennett capped Milwaukees six-run seventh inning with a three-run homer off Morses glove, and the Brewers ruined the Mariners night honouring former star Ken Griffey Jr. with a 10-0 win on Saturday night. Griffey was inducted to the team Hall of Fame before the game, then saw his old club give up two big innings to the Brewers. The first three Brewers reached in the seventh without the ball leaving the infield, but Gennetts homer was the big blow. The Brewers added four more in the ninth against Seattles bullpen. "I think when the offence is doing that all the way through, hopefully you have a chance to score in more innings," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "I know we busted out with the one, but then we added on, which I thought was really good." Tom Gorzelanny had his best performance of the season for the Brewers. Making his seventh start after beginning the season in the bullpen, Gorzelanny (3-4) gave up just three hits in seven innings. It was the first time Gorzelanny threw at least seven innings and gave up zero earned runs since July 1, 2011, when he was pitching for the Washington Nationals. He struck out seven and allowed only one batter to reach third base. "Im not calling it a renaissance. Im just trying to do my best out there and have a good effort each time," Gorzelanny said. "Im not really thinking about what could happen or how things will shake out." Gorzelanny also pitched through two unique circumstances. The first came right at the start, as the beginning of the game was delayed by 17 minutes because the ceremony honouring Griffey ran long. Gorzelanny ran up into the batting cage underneath the stadium to make a few extra throws, but wasnt bothered by having to wait. Then he sat through the Brewers big seventh inning, but was able to finish the inning. "Its great just to get through the sixth inning, which Ive had trouble with this year a few times," Gorzelanny said. Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma (10-6) matched Gorzelanny for the first six innings, but quickly fell apart in the seventh. Carlos Gomez started the inning with a bunt single, diving around the tag atttempt of Justin Smoak at first base to reach safely. Huarache Blanche Homme Pas Cher. Iwakuma said he tweaked his back on the play and struggled to get the ball down in the strike zone from then on. Caleb Gindl then chopped a grounder to the left side as Gomez was running on the pitch. Shortstop Brad Miller fielded the ball, but made the mistake of throwing to first when it was clear he wouldnt get Gindl. That allowed Gomez to reach third and put runners on the corners with no outs. Khris Davis then hit a shot down to third base that Kyle Seager backhanded. He tried to get Gomez at the plate but his throw was slightly high and Gomez was safe after crashing into catcher Humberto Quintero and knocking the ball free. Quintero stayed down briefly as the inside of his right knee collided with Gomezs right knee, but he remained in the game. Gomez said Quintero was unhappy being run into and let him know it when he came up for his next at-bat. "I dont mean to hurt any player, but if he is in front of the plate, what am I going to do?" Gomez said. "You dont have a second to think." Juan Francisco then doubled to left-centre on Iwakumas next pitch to score Gindl and give the Brewers a 2-0 advantage. Yuniesky Betancourt added an RBI single before Gennetts second homer of the season. Morse had a shot at pulling back the drive, but it deflected off his glove and over the fence. "I got it a little off the end. I thought it had a chance, but all I was trying to do was get a pitch up and put it in the outfield somewhere," Gennett said. Said Morse: "I felt like I had a good chance on it till I hit the wall and it kind of jarred my wrist back." Griffey became the seventh member of the teams Hall of Fame. It was an emotional ceremony that brought the first sellout crowd of the season for the Mariners. The ceremony was supposed to last about 30 minutes, but Griffeys speech was nearly 25 minutes itself and the entire ceremony went for nearly an hour. Notes: Milwaukee scored 10 or more runs in consecutive games for the second time this season. ... Griffey joined late Hall of Fame broadcaster Dave Niehaus, and former teammates Alvin Davis, Randy Johnson, Dan Wilson, Jay Buhner and Edgar Martinez being honoured by the club. ... Gorzelanny improved to 2-0 all-time against Seattle as a starter. ... Seattle had committed seven errors in its previous three games before staying clean defensively on Saturday.
