MINNEAPOLIS - The rain dripped off the brim of his cap as Phil Hughes walked off the mound. Kenneth Faried Jersey .An hour-plus delay meant the last start of his first season for Minnesota was over. That half-million-dollar bonus stayed one out away. He still earned a nice prize: the major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio.Hughes struck out five without a walk over eight innings, and the Twins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Wednesday afternoon.I was very aware of it, yeah, but some things just arent meant to be, said Hughes, who wouldve been paid $500,000 for reaching 210 innings. He finished with 209 2-3, having already triggered a pair of $250,000 bonuses for reaching 180 and 195 innings, on top of his $8 million salary.Manager Ron Gardenhire said Hughes wouldve returned for the ninth on a dry day, but the 66-minute delay ended that. Gardenhire also said he wouldnt try to get Hughes in any of the teams last four games at Detroit. Hughes didnt seem to mind.Finishing that out today is a pretty cool way to do it, he said.Hughes had been aware of his chance at the record, too, for the last few weeks. Every three-ball count created some anxiety.You cant just lay pitches down the middle, he said.Hughes (16-10) finished his first year with the Twins with the same number of wins and walks. With 186 strikeouts, his 11.63 ratio became the best of all time for pitchers with a qualifying amount of innings. Hughes beat Bret Saberhagen, who had 143 strikeouts and 13 walks for the New York Mets in 1994 for an 11.00 ratio.Hughes allowed only a sacrifice fly by David Peralta in the sixth.Everybodys looking from the dugout and trying to keep off that borderline high pitch, but with the way it comes out, hes sneaky, and it makes it hard to do, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said.Jared Burton closed for his third save. Hughes completed at least seven innings over each of his last nine starts, quite the rebound from a rough 2013 season in New York for the Yankees.Hes been our guy all year long that you count on, Gardenhire said.Diamondbacks starter Vidal Nuno escaped with only two runs allowed in five innings despite loading the bases in the first two frames. Nuno finished 0-7 with a 3.76 ERA in 14 turns for the Diamondbacks since he was acquired July 6 from the New York Yankees in the Brandon McCarthy trade. He went 2-5 with a 5.42 ERA in 17 appearances for the Yankees.Paid attendance was 29,445 for the home finale, though the number of people in the park was probably one-third of that and far less once the rain came. That gave the Twins a season total of 2,250,606 tickets sold, the fewest in five years at Target Field and the lowest number since 2004.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: 2B Aaron Hill didnt play after he dislocated the top of his right pinky finger Monday in an eighth-inning headfirst slide into home.Twins: Mauers bruised right elbow was a little sore, Gardenhire said, from a pitch that hit him Tuesday in the first inning. The manager wanted to keep Mauer fresh for the weekend for an optimal lineup against Detroit with the AL Central race ongoing.I want him playing all those games, Gardenhire said.In the sixth inning, 3B Trevor Plouffe left the game with a broken left forearm. He was struck by A.J. Pollocks knee during an attempted tag as Pollock slid into third base.UP NEXTTwins: Minnesota has four games left against the Tigers, who hold a slim lead over Kansas City, with rookie Trevor May (3-5, 8.39) pitching Thursday at Detroit against Tigers ace Max Scherzer (17-5, 3.19). May had a three-start winning streak snapped last Saturday against Cleveland, giving up seven runs in 4 2-3 innings.Diamondbacks: Arizona has Thursday off before returning home to finish the season against St. Louis, the NL Central leader still seeking to clinch a third straight division title. Trevor Cahill (3-12, 5.55), who is winless in his last six starts with 25 earned runs surrendered in 28 1-3 innings, will start for Arizona against Michael Wacha (5-6, 3.18). Paul Millsap Jersey . Manager Ryan Nelsen has confirmed Brazilian No. 1 Julio Cesar will be rested for Wednesdays first leg of the semifinal. That opens the door for Bendik, who started 33 games for Toronto last season. Custom Denver Nuggets Jerseys .com) - John Wall had 15 points, 12 assists and four steals as the Washington Wizards defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 92-85 on Monday night. http://www.authenticnuggetsproshop.com/Gary-Harris-Jersey/ . He liked what he saw on Tuesday night. Not only did his team post a comeback 3-2 victory in a shootout over the Montreal Canadiens, but the rival Washington Capitals were beaten 5-1 in Buffalo.ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons have to recast their coaching search after Arizona defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles called off a scheduled second interview with the team.Bowles agent, Tony Agnone, told The Associated Press on Tuesday night Bowles cancelled the meeting with the Falcons that was set for Wednesday. The change in plans came as Bowles was finalizing an agreement to coach the New York Jets. Bowles met with the Jets on Tuesday.The Falcons are expected to have a second interview with Detroit defensive co-ordinator Teryl Austin later this week.The team is seeking to replace Mike Smith, who was fired following a 6-10 finish in 2014.The talks with Austin could determine if the Falcons wait for a second meeting with Seattle defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn, who is unavailable this week as the Seahawks prepare for Sundays NFC championship game.If the Seahawks beat Green Bay on Sunday, Quinn may not be open for more talks with Atlanta until after the Feb. 1 Super Bowl.Bowles, 51, was Philadelphias defensive co-ordinator in 2012 before building one of the leagues top defences in Arizona. The Cardinals ranked fifth in the league, allowing 18.7 points per game.He previously was a defensive assistant with the Jeets, Cleveland, Dallas and Miami. Wilson Chandler Jersey. He was 2-1 as the Dolphins interim head coach in 2011.Austin, 49, was Baltimores secondary coach for three years before becoming Detroits defensive co-ordinator for the 2014 season.The Falcons search has focused on top defensive co-ordinators after former Jets coach Rex Ryan, also known for defence, was hired as Buffalos new coach. Its not a new strategy. Smith was the defensive co-ordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003-07 before being hired by Atlanta.Atlanta has struggled on defence while finishing a combined 10-22 the past two seasons. The Falcons allowed the most total yards and yards passing in the league this season.The two straight losing seasons followed five winning seasons in a row under Smith.The Falcons also have interviewed New England offensive co-ordinator Josh McDaniels, Broncos offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase, former Bills coach Doug Marrone and Atlanta special teams coach Keith Armstrong.It is unclear if the team will seek to interview former Denver coach John Fox, who suddenly became available on Monday. Fox coached in the NFC South with Carolina from 2002-10.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
