ESPN looks at the main talking points, the best overtakes and the most shocking moments of the U. Fred VanVleet Raptors Jersey .S. Grand Prix.?Shock: Do not adjust your set -- both, I repeat both, Mercedes drivers had a clean start and led into Turn 1, which hasnt happened much this season. Lewis Hamilton said the team had worked on its starts this weekend and clearly that paid dividends for both drivers when the lights went out.Shocker: This can be shared between Max Verstappen and Ferrari. Verstappen for making his second pit stop when Red Bull was not ready, later saying he thought the team had called him. An car failure shortly afterwards ended his race but perhaps saved his blushes -- though his decision to park the car at Turn 15 triggered the Virtual Safety Car which then ruined teammate Daniel Ricciardos race.?But Ferrari, once again, proved that things can get worse, releasing Kimi Raikkonen from his final stop with a wheel gun still attached to the car. That forced the Finn to retire from a race that once again got away from Ferrari.Fastest Lap: But wait, theres good news for Ferrari! A late switch to super-softs for Sebastian Vettel -- in what was effectively a free pit stop -- allowed him to set a fastest lap in the closing stages on the super-soft tyre. It should be little consolation for a team finding new ways to embarrass themselves every weekend.Overtake of the race: Fernando Alonso bullying his way past Felipe Massa at Turn 15 was a gem, a great show of aggression from a man who deserves a better car next year. The wheel-banging move was just within the limits and proof that the fire is still burning for the two-time world champion.Driver of the day: Lewis Hamilton deserves plaudits for leading away from pole position to win, converting a long overdue victory and keeping his title hopes alive -- though still not in his hands.But it would be unfair to overlook the brilliant Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso. Alonso eventually got past for fifth but Sainz deserves this accolade, coming agonisingly close to a career-best position in a car running a year-old engine. Hes going to give Red Bull an almighty headache next season when other teams come knocking for his services. Vince Carter Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Patrick McCaw Raptors Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. http://www.nbaraptorsonline.com/Authentic-Jodie-Meeks-Jersey/ . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. DETROIT -- Kevin Gausman feels strong physically in the closing weeks of the season. Thats helped him make opposing batters look overmatched in recent starts.The Baltimore Orioles right-hander has won his last four starts and carries a streak of 19 consecutive scoreless innings into his outing at the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. Gausman was floundering with a 3-10 record until his recent turnaround.Ive just been a little bit frustrated, until about a month ago, with how my seasons been going, Gausman told the Baltimore Sun. I felt like I was pitching great and things just didnt go my way. Now its kind of on the other side, the other flip side of it. Like I said, Im just confident, feeling good. I think this is the first time Ive got into August and September and felt this good physically with this amount of innings under my belt.Gausman has walked five and struck out 27 during the winning streak. His scoreless stretch began with a six-inning stint against Washington. He then held down the New York Yankees in back-to-back outings, spanning 13 innings.Gausman is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA in four career starts against the Tigers. The three-game series could impact the pennant race, as both Baltimore and Detroit are in the wild-card hunt while still trying to catch the leaders of their divisions.The Orioles are two games back of American League East Division leader Boston and hold the second wild card spot, one game ahead of the Tigers. Detroit trails Cleveland in the AL Central by six games.Hes had a great look in his eye for about a month, not that he hasnt before, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said to the media recently of Gausman. Marc Gasol Raptors Jersey. Its just theres a real driven look and presence about him. Felt like hes really kind of hit his stride. Hes been solid for us for a while.The Orioles have won four of their last six games but dropped the finale of a three-game series to Tampa Bay 7-6 on Wednesday. They are hopeful that first baseman Chris Davis will return to the lineup on Friday. Davis sat out the last game with soreness in his left palm.Detroit returns home after losing two of three to the Chicago White Sox. The Tigers bullpen gave away a 4-3 lead in the eighth on Wednesday by surrendering four runs.Down the stretch, we need to win every game that we can, catcher James McCann said. So not getting the series win is frustrating, but at the end of the day, weve got to show up to the ballpark on Friday. Weve got a big series with Baltimore.Rookie Michael Fulmer, who has lost his last three starts, will oppose Gausman. Fulmer was encouraged by his most recent outing, when he gave up three runs in six innings to Kansas City in a 5-2 loss on Saturday.Im taking all positives out of this, he told the Detroit News. My fastball command was better. I made a few mechanical tweaks that helped a lot. The change-up was sharp and the slider was sharp. I got a lot of ground balls, kind of like the old me out there -- thats what I want.Fulmer got a no-decision on May 15 in his only career appearance against the Orioles, allowing four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings.
