MIAMI -- Former All-Star closer Brian Wilson acknowledged feeling butterflies in the bullpen as he warmed up Thursday, which was understandable since he hadnt pitched in 16 months. Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential . Once on the mound, he took a deep breath and was ready to go. "I only have a brief moment out there, and I can either crumble or rise to the occasion," he said. "I can tell you crumbling isnt something Id like to do." Instead, Wilson took the biggest step yet in his comeback from Tommy John surgery, pitching a scoreless ninth inning to seal the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-0 victory over the Miami Marlins. Wilson gave up a two-out double, struck out two and looked a lot like the pitcher who saved 171 games for the Dodgers rivals, the San Francisco Giants. "It felt normal," the bearded right-hander said. "It was long overdue, a very arduous process, but Im glad I went through it so I could appreciate baseball even more. I felt comfortable. I felt like I hadnt skipped a beat." Wilson threw 19 pitches, 11 for strikes, and reached 94 mph on the scoreboard radar gun. "Pretty impressive," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "He comes out throwing strikes. His stuff seemed sharp. It was good." The game was Wilsons first since April 12, 2012, with the Giants. He underwent reconstructive elbow surgery later that month, and the Dodgers signed him after he was non-tendered by San Francisco last winter. When Wilson struck out Justin Ruggiano to complete the Dodgers 17th shutout this year, he celebrated with his familiar crossed-arm, finger-pointing gesture. "I was very impressed with his stuff and the way he threw the ball and his confidence," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "Hes going to help us out. The guy has gotten last outs in World Series games, so hes somebody we can count on who wont get rattled in tough situations, which is another great piece to have." Wilson joins a deep bullpen that has the second-best ERA in the NL since the All-Star break. He said his role will be to "get outs," and hes looking forward to pitching in the important games to come for the NL West leaders. "Theres going to be no lack of fun," he said. "This team is playing well and is just a great group of guys having a lot of good laughs. When you feel comfortable in the clubhouse, it only correlates to success out on the field, and thats how everyones playing. Theres energy coming from all sorts of players here right now. Were on a good run." Adidas Neo Trainers Womens . Top-seeded Djokovic, who is making only his second appearance this year after reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, was a 6-3, 6-3 winner over 54th-ranked Istomin of Uzbekistan. "It wasnt as easy as the scoreline indicates," said Djokovic, who has won in Dubai on four occasions. Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Moire Sale . -- Adrian Peterson remained in a walking boot to treat a high ankle sprain on his left leg on Wednesday, and coach Leslie Frazier said he will not play on Sunday against Atlanta if he cant hit the practice field in the next two days. http://www.originalsuktrainers.com/adidas-trainers-uk/adidas-ultra-boost.html . After losing a shutout bid in the dying seconds of Sundays win over the Colorado Avalanche, Luongo would not be denied against the punchless Oilers and is now just one back of Patrick Roy for 14th on the all-time list.Chris Wood and Andy Sullivan agreed that the lure of representing England in this weeks World Cup of Golf was impossible to resist despite both players having to postpone their holidays. The Ryder Cup stars were scheduled to take an extended break from the game following the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, but they have changed their plans to compete at the superb Kingston Heath course in Melbourne.But Danny Willett, who had chosen Lee Westwood as his partner, opted to pull out to protect his suspect back and Wood was the next highest-ranked player to be given the option of teeing it up with Justin Rose unavailable. Chris Wood chose to play with Andy Sullivan in Melbourne Wood decided to bring in Sullivan rather than retain Westwood for the competition, a move that prompted the latter to express his disappointment during the European Tour finale last week.Wood responded on Sunday by hinting that Willett was in the wrong for choosing Westwood in the first place, with four other English players higher up in the world rankings. Lee Westwood was disappointed to be left out having initially been chosen by Danny Willett I went down the rankings and I did it in as fair a way as I could, Wood said after his final round at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. There wasnt this much fuss when Danny jumped myself, Tyrrell Hatton, Fitzy (Matt Fitzpatrick) and Sully to get to Lee.I totally understand Lees frustration, youre ready to go, but myself and Sully are hungry to go and play and surely thats what you want. Willetts withdrawal opened the door for Wood to chose his partner And on their arrival in Australia, Wood and Sullivan insisted they were happy to interrupt their breaks as they bid to become only the third English pair to win the event after David Carter and Nick Faldo in 1998, and Paul Casey with Luke Donald 12 years ago.

But Im not sure how many World Cups Im going to be invited to play, so when you get the opportunity to come and play, the only answer I was going to give was yes.Wood added: I had a holiday planned with my wife, so she went home instead of being on holiday with me in Dubai. I had to deal with that gently! Wood and Sullivan are long-time friends and practised together during the Ryder Cup But the chance to play in a World Cup and the golf courses down here are so good. These sort of sandbelt courses I could play for the rest of my life, so the opportunity to come down here and play, Im always going to take it.Weve got a height difference to overcome for the week, but it will be great. We both play the same ball so it will be pretty easy for us. Weve both had pretty good years, both played Ryder Cup. So this is a great end to the season for both of us.
