.All four teams in Group D have two points after 1-1 draws in every match.On Wednesday, Yaya Toure and his Ivorian teammates will face Cameroon at Malabo Stadium, while Guinea takes on Mali in Mongomo.We fight like elephants to try to win this game, said veteran Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure, referencing the national teams nickname. This game is going to be different, and I cant wait. We need to give everything to prove we are a great team.More draws on Wednesday could mean that the quarterfinalists from the group will be drawn by lots. But if both matches produce a winner, then those two teams will go through.The pre-tournament favourites from the group, Ivory Coast and Cameroon, will need a high-scoring draw in Malabo and another draw in Mongomo in order for both to advance.We go for a win, Cameroon coach Volker Finke said on Tuesday. But I know we have to work very hard against the ball. There are excellent individual players in the team of Ivory Coast.Besides Yaya Toure, who recently won his fourth African player of the year award, the Ivorians also have Wilfried Bony and veteran Salomon Kalou. But they will be missing Gervinho, the Roma forward who will be serving the second of his two-match suspension for getting a straight red card in the opening match.In their first two matches in Malabo, the Ivorians had to come back to earn their draws. They got a late equalizer from Seydou Doumbia in the opening group match against Guinea, and Max Gradel scored an even later equalizer against Mali.For Guinea, one of the three worst-affected countries in the Ebola outbreak, the results so far have been welcome good news.Weve played two of the favourites of the competition and not lost, Guinea captain Ibrahima Traore said after the draw against Cameroon. We just have to continue the way were playing. We have what it takes to qualify.Guinea, however, will likely be playing without Florentin Pogba, the older brother of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. Florentin, a defender who plays for Saint-Etienne, injured his right hamstring against Cameroon.But despite injuries and suspensions, Wednesday is the final chance for all four Group D teams to ensure advancement from their play on the field, rather than luck.Its always very important to increase your pace step by step and not to start very quickly, and not be without energy after the second game, Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard said. We are in a good way. Cheap NFL Jerseys China

The Goldeyes (39-23) took the rubber match of their series against the Kansas City T-Bones (30-32) by a score of 9-3 in front of 4,301 at CommunityAmerica Ballpark in Kansas City. Winnipegs starter Nick Hernandez was strong on the mound and earned the win. He worked seven and two-thirds innings and his only real blunder came in the seventh when he gave up three runs on four hits. Hernandez set the T-Bones down in order in five innings, had five strikeouts and gave up no walks. "Nick was throwing all of his pitches for strikes, and he kept the T-Bones batters off balance," said Goldeyes Pitching Coach Jamie Vermilyea on the Jewel 101 Post-Game Show. "He was getting strike one on pretty much everybody, and when you get a head of batters you can dictate how each at bat goes." The Goldeyes bats that were swinging well on Saturday night continued to be lively on Sunday. Six Fish batters had multiple hits, and three had multiple RBI. The Goldeyes scored in five different innings. "We started scoring early and often, and that takes a lot of pressure off your pitchers," said Vermilyea. It would all start in the top of the first, as the Goldeyes would take a three-run early lead on five hits. After being sat down in order in the second the Goldeyes came back looking for more in the third. AAfter Tyler Kuhn got on base on a single, Donnie Webb would step up three batters later and hit a two-run home run to extend the Goldeyes lead to five. Wholesale Jerseys Chinese
. The next inning the Fish would produce two more runs on a home run from Josh Mazzola. In the fifth Webb would come around to score his second run of the game on a RBI single from Reggie Abercrombie. Two innings later the Goldeyes would tack on their ninth run of the game. Jake Blackwood got on base on a single and then was driven in by Abercrombie, giving Abercrombie his third RBI of the game. "Hes an RBI guy for us," said Vermilyea of Abercrombie, "thats why we got him. Today, he put the ball in play and when you do that good things are going to happen." The T-Bones would get too little too late in response. Going into the bottom of the eighth the home team had only two hits, but in the inning they would hit four singles and score three runs. Cephas Howard would come to the mound in relief of Hernandez in the bottom of the eighth, and he did his job, putting out Danny Richar to end the inning. Taylor Sewitt would finish the game for the Goldeyes, as he would pitch a scoreless, 1-2-3 ninth inning to secure the win. The Goldeyes now travel home to take on the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in a three-game series that goes Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with all three games starting at 7 p.m. Wholesale NFL Jerseys
