SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants are taking no chances as they chase a playoff spot in the final week of the season.The Giants acquired infielder Gordon Beckham on Tuesday in a trade with the Atlanta Braves to give themselves some help with Eduardo Nunez injured.Manager Bruce Bochy said Beckham was due to arrive shortly before first pitch of Tuesday nights series opener against Colorado. San Francisco is lking to secure one of the NL wild cards and Beckham could make some starts this weekend against the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers. He also provides a veteran right-handed bat off the bench.Nunez had an MRI exam that showed a mild right hamstring pull that is expected to keep him out a few days.With what happened there with Nuney, we just felt like we could use a little help, Bochy said.Beckham is batting .217 with five homers and 30 RBI in 85 games, playing second, third and shortstop. He would not be eligible for the postseason roster, but Bochy credited general manager Bobby Evans for finding a capable fill-in to try to get the Giants into the playoffs. They have won the World Series every even year this decade: 2010, `12 and `14.Nunez could be ready by the weekend series with the Dodgers.Every day well re-evaluate him, Bochy said. Were hoping hell be ready the last series.San Francisco is sending Class-A infielder Rich Rodriguez to Atlanta.Also Tuesday, Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto threw a bullpen session -- Bochy even std in as the hitter for a few minutes -- to test his strained left groin and did fine. He is slated to start Thursday as planned without restrictions. Cueto will go through some fielding work Wednesday to make sure the groin is fine.San Francisco also added catcher Tony Sanchez to the roster for insurance behind Buster Posey and Trevor Brown. Outfielder Mac Williamson was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a quadriceps strain that was unknown to the team until he could barely walk after landing from San Diego on Sunday night. Left-hander Matt Reynolds was designated for assignment. Antonio Valencia Manchester United Jersey .

Marcus Rashford Jersey .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. Three minutes and four seconds. Thats exactly how long it tk Irelands Conor McGregor to make history in the second round at UFC 205 on Saturday.McGregor knocked out lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez to become the first mixed martial arts fighter to simultaneously hold two UFC belts: featherweight and now lightweight.Ireland has produced some incredibly talented athletes over the years, but McGregor, known as Notorious MMA, has defined, owned and ruled on the international stage.This is not forgetting an astonishing year in Irish sport, though. Ireland defeated the All Blacks for the first time in 111 years in Chicago, Dundalk became the first Irish ftball team to win a group-stage game in European competition and cult-hero boxer Katie Taylor turned professional.But McGregor is UFCs Lionel Messi.With 7.8 million followers on Instagram, 4.5 million on Facebk and 2.8 million on Twitter -- he is more than just the UFCs main attraction -- McGregor is the sports icon, mascot and champion.McGregor has made it very clear that he is proud of his rts. Speaking to ESPN in July, he said, I tell you what, them Irish genes are gd. Theyve served me well.We are made tough. We are made of steel. So I have no doubt the bld in my genes, the Irish bld in me has definitely std me. My familys lineage, we are warriors.Of course, Ireland has a rich history of celebrating domestic sports such as Gaelic ftball and hurling, and has excelled in horse racing, but few from the country have become world beaters.Golfs Padraig Harrington comes close. The Dublin man has three major titles to his name, including The Opeen Championship and PGA Championship double in 2008.dddddddddddd He spent over 300 weeks in the top 10 world rankings, but never the top spot.Roy Keane captained Manchester United to the treble in 1999 -- winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League -- while Paul McGrath represented Ireland at the 1990 and 1994 ftball World Cups. McGrath also participated in the teams first international tournament in 1988.Sonia OSullivan is also a national icon. The long-distance runner from County Cork became the 5,000-meter world champion in 1995 and won a silver medal at the 2000 Olympic Games.Brian ODriscoll is arguably the closest to rival Conor McGregor as Irelands greatest champion. ODriscoll is regarded as one of the best rugby union players of all time, and he captained his country from 2003 until 2012.ODriscoll is the second-most-capped player ever in union and the highest try scorer in Irish rugby. He also led Ireland to two Six Nations titles, in 2009 and 2014 respectively.However, none of those athletes had the swagger and cult following of McGregor, who has become such a superstar in America and all across the world over the past few years.It can be argued that the rise of social media and celebrity culture has helped drive his fame -- but you cant say he doesnt have the talent to back this up.His remarkable UFC record includes ground-breaking victories over Nate Diaz, Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo that have helped change the sport. And McGregor isnt even finished yet. ' ' '
