If we hit the right spot, this should be cleared away for a while. Pretty excited about it. He said, ‘Keep doing your core program, all the stretching you can, and it should help.’ I’ve stayed on it all year. Just sometimes it froze up.”As far as his future, the 35-year-old Estrada said: “Obviously, there’s always a chance of me coming back. I’m not sure in which direction they’re going, (or) if they want to go younger. It seems to be going that way. But I’m never right about these things. So I don’t really know.

And you know what? Kitt, from my understanding, will go through the appeals process and kind of let it be heard, his viewpoint. And then go from there.” SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ivan Nova had little problem extending Pittsburgh’s streak of strong road starts.Three home runs, including a milestone shot by David Freese, gave the right-hander all the cushion he needed.Nova allowed two runs in six innings Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , Freese hit his 100th career home run, and the Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants 10-5 on Thursday night.“Guys got balls over the plate and when we had them we nailed them,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said “And Nova was spot on through four.

Nova yielded three hits and had three strikeouts.Pirates starting pitchers have a 2.20 ERA over their last 10 road starts.“We have good starting pitching,” Nova said. “We have had some guys pitch the way that they’ve been pitching and you just want to follow that.

The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015 and was recalled from the minors on Sunday.“This has got to be a very special evening for him, the fight, the perseverance and the resiliency to stay in the hunt and get back back and contribute in a major league game,” Hurdle said. “His stuff was clean.”BONDS RETIREMENTThe Giants will retire the jersey of home run king Barry Bonds during a pregame ceremony Saturday.
