PHOENIX -- Paul Goldschmidt seems to do it all for the Arizona Diamondbacks. It had been nearly two years since his last game-ending homer, though.He had the big hit Monday night, connecting to lead off the ninth inning and lift the Diamondbacks over the Atlanta Braves 9-8.He homered off John Gant (1-3), sending an 0-1 pitch deep into seats in left field and helping Arizona overcome a five-run deficit and a two-homer night from Freddie Freeman.Arizona had its largest comeback win since June 3, 2015, when it bested the Braves after being down by six.This was Goldschmidts fourth career walkoff homer and sixth game-ending hit.The tendency in a tie game or extra innings is try to hit home runs. We have played some extra inning games and that has just not worked out for me and Im sure for most guys, Goldschmidt said. Its nice not to have to take home a moral victory, get an actual one.Freeman hit a solo homer off Enrique Burgos (1-1) to tie it in the ninth.Welington Castillo hit a two-out bases-loaded double during a four-run seventh that put Arizona ahead 8-7 after it trailed 5-0 in the second.All four runs came off Arodys Vizcaino. Michael Bourns single drove in Jean Segura to make it 7-5, then Goldschmidt singled and one out later, Yasmany Tomas walked. Castillo then lined a 2-0 pitch into the gap in left-center to clear the bases.Ive said it all year, these guys have battled, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. We have gone through some tough times. We have fallen behind. I have never thought theyve given up. I always tip my hat to them.Tomas hit a two-run homer in the third, giving the slugger homers in four straight games at Chase Field. Hes the fourth player in club history to do that.Freeman and Adonis Garcia each hit two-run homers while the Braves scored the first five runs. Freeman, with three hits on the night, raised his career average to .400 at Chase Field with 50 hits, including 12 home runs.I love this place, Freeman said. I like it more than Colorado. I think its the batters eye. You just get in that box and you just feel good. You see everything.Freeman returned to the lineup after missing Sundays game with a finger injury. He also doubled and scored three times.Fingers good. Felt good. Didnt know what to expect, just seeing what was going to happen, he said. Decided to be aggressive on my first at-bat and got the first one (home run), and that calmed everything down after that.Nick Markakis had three hits and an RBI. Mike Foltynewicz pitched six innings and allowed four runs and nine hits, striking out seven.Atlantas big lead disappeared with Chris Owings RBI single in the bottom of the second, Goldschmidts sacrifice fly in the third and Tomas home run, trimming the Braves lead to 5-4. But Atlanta scored twice in the top of the fifth with Markakis single and Chase dArnauds sacrifice fly to take a three-run lead.Arizona starter Zack Godley allowed seven runs in five innings. He allowed nine hits, walked three and struck out three.WELCOME BACKFormer Diamondback Ender Inciarte, the Braves leadoff man Monday, received a round of applause and a few cheers upon being announced to start the game.

Cheap Nike Shirts China .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. The announcement of BCCIs upcoming season, which includes a record 13 home Tests, with much fanfare in June exuded a sense of optimism in their planning. That the Duleep Trophy, shelved in 2015-16 owing to a busy international calendar, was set to be reintroduced in a new avatar in the pink-ball format, spelt out their intention to adapt to the winds of change. The idea of playing the Ranji Trophy at neutral venues to prevent home teams from tampering with pitches to suit their strengths was seen as a move to negate the unfair advantage.Three months on, the BCCI is yet to make any headway into the domestic schedule. While they have cited the ongoing legal battles with the Lodha Committee for the delay in announcement of the fixtures, it cant be used as an excuse to draw public sympathy. ESPNcricinfo looks at all the talking points yet to be addressed with less than two weeks to go for the domestic season.Unavailability of top players for Duleep TrophyA majority of the 17-man Test squad in the West Indies is likely to be joined by MS Dhoni, the limited-overs captain, and a few others for the two T20Is against West Indies in Florida on August 27 and 28. The next rung of players, many of whom were a part of the national side for the limited-overs series in Zimbabwe in June, will be in Australia with the India A squad for the quadrangular one-day series followed by two four-day matches. That leaves the selectors with a very limited pool to choose from, which means the tournament, originally billed as the curtain raiser for Indias upcoming Test season, will lose its significance even before a ball has been bowled.Duleep Trophy formatThere is no clarity on whether it will be a three or four-team affair. Originally scheduled to involve four sides, the BCCI may have no option but to whittle it down to three teams because of non-availability of big names and the A tour of Australia. There is also confusion over allotment of venues for the tournament. Scheduled to be played across three venues, the BCCI has reportedly zeroed in on Greater Noida, although an official or final decision is yet to be made.Duleep Trophy with pink ball or red ball?During the BCCIs inaugural conclave,, which involved all its stakeholders in June, president Anurag Thakur stated emphatically that the feedback from top players would be considered before continuing their pink-ball trial.dddddddddddd With the top players set to miss the tournament, there is now a question mark over that experiment. Furthermore, India wont be hosting a day-night Test against New Zealand as things stand, with the board announcing all games to be played during the series starting at 9.30am. The board is said to have received mixed responses from players who featured in the league final conducted by the Cricket Association of Bengal.Ranji Trophy scheduleThe proposal of the cricket committee to play all Ranji Trophy matches at neutral venues have been ratified, but everything else surrounding the competition has been left hanging. The schedule, normally announced in June-July, is yet to be unveiled. There is also confusion over how the tournament will be played out.A hectic T20 schedule from January culminating with the World T20 at home in April forced the board to schedule the limited-overs tournaments - the Vijay Hazare Trophy (50-overs) and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20) immediately after the group stages of the Ranji Trophy in 2015-16. It remains to be seen if the BCCI will adopt the conventional method of playing the first-class tournament followed by the limited-overs matches this season, given the Indian team is expected to play just a handful of T20s at home.New teamsThe Chhattisgarh State Cricket Sangh, which was an Associate member of the BCCI, was given Full Member status after a Special General Meeting in February this year, paving the way for their Ranji Trophy debut in the 2016-17 season. As things stand, they are slated for an entry into Group C, which will consist of 10 teams. What of Bihar, which has received full membership following a directive from the Supreme Court? While the Bihar Cricket Association is eligible to vote in the board elections and also feature in the domestic tournament, clarity from the BCCI on the matter is still awaited. ' ' '
