    The doors at City Football Academy keep swinging, with Central Coast veteran Josh Rose joining the A-League club as Jacob Melling and Jack Clisby depart. Kris Versteeg Jersey .A day after Socceroo legend Tim Cahill joined Melbourne City, Western Sydney pounced on Melling and Clisby as the A-League transfer window heated up.Both City and the Wanderers can be happy with their business, but the loss of Rose is another blow to the embattled Mariners.The left-back was contracted to Central Coast but was granted a release in the wake of Tony Walmsleys sacking earlier this week as coach.Rose, 34, has a chance at winning a second A-League title after becoming the latest player to join Citys star-studded ranks, signing a one-year deal.He said he had mixed emotions about leaving the Mariners, where he had played since 2010, making 177 A-League appearances.Im sad to be leaving this club that Ive been a part of for six seasons now but really excited for my new adventure, Rose said.Rose said a big part of his decision to leave was to allow more opportunities for young left-back Mickey Neill.But his departure is exactly what Central Coast dont need as they continue a frantic search for a new coach.Wanderers coach Tony Popovic signed Clisby, 24, after the departure of full-back Scott Jamieson to Swedish club IFK Gothenburg.The addition of midfielder Melling, 21, appears a good piece of business.While Clisby was largely unloved by Citys fans, Mellings tenacious play made him a favourite at AAMI Park.In a statement, he took a dig at his former clubs ambitions and match-day atmosphere.It was time to move to a club that always aspires to be the best, Melling said.Playing against the Wanderers is very intimidating - especially in Western Sydney - and to play in that atmosphere, with that fan group behind me, will be an incredible experience.Melling and Clisby have signed two-year deals. Darcy Tucker Jersey . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Tyler Bozak Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break.ARLINGTON, Texas -- When Justin Grimm threw his last pitch, the Texas Rangers were trailing the AL West-leading Oakland Athletics. The rookie right-hander stayed in just long enough to become the first Rangers starter to get a victory in June. David Murphy and Leonys Martin singled and scored in Texas two-run fifth, and the Rangers rallied to beat the As 9-4 on Wednesday night. "For sure, this win goes to our offence, they came back and helped me out, picked me up," said Grimm, who leads American League rookies with six wins. Oakland went ahead 3-2 in the fifth on a three-run homer by Chris Young, which came after Grimm walked two batters. Ian Kinsler hit a sacrifice fly off Tommy Milone (6-7) in the bottom half that scored Murphy. Martin raced home on a grounder for the go-ahead run. "I think we can go out there now and be competitive," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "I think we got the monkey off our back as far as having a total drought offensively. I think some guys are starting do some things all throughout the lineup. ... We start getting more consistent, then well get back to playing our baseball." Nelson Cruz, hitting third for the first time this season in Washingtons 50th different batting order in 72 games, had three hits and drove in two runs. Lance Berkman homered. Rangers starting pitchers had gone 17 consecutive games without a win since Derek Holland beat Kansas City on May 31. The teams previous longest such stretch was 16 in a row in 1975. They scored nine runs for the first time since a 9-5 win over Arizona on May 30. Their 14 hits were the most since the game Holland won. Texas opened the four-game series with an 8-7 win Monday night. That snapped a six-game losing streak when the Rangers scored a combined eight runs. With only their fourth win in 14 games, the Rangers pulled within two games of Oakland. The As will go for a split in the finale of the four-game series Thursday, but will leave Texas still in first place regardless of what happens. In the Oakland fifth, Grimm (6-5) walked Josh Reddick, a .206 hitter, before a wild pitch and then a walk to No. 9 hitter Eric Sogard. Young homered onto the hill in straightaway centre field for a 3-2 lead. Even though he was hitting only .186, Young was in the leadoff spot with Coco Crisp and John Jaso out of the starting lineup. Before that, the As didnt have a runner get past first base. But their lead didnt last long after Grimms last pitch. "Chris hits a big home run and thats a big momentum shift in the game,&quoot; manager Bob Melvin said. Calvin Pickard Jersey. "It didnt look like Tommy had his best stuff, we werent swinging the bats as well, it just seemed like it was their game for a bit, and now all of a sudden were ahead. So it is really important you go out there and shut it down." Murphy and Martin, left-handed hitters at the bottom of the Texas batting order, had consecutive singles off lefty Milone to start the fifth. Murphy scored on Kinslers fly ball and Martin immediately took off from third on Cruzs grounder. Third baseman Josh Donaldsons throw was to the first base-side of the plate, and by time Derek Norris caught it and reached back to try to apply a tag, Martin had slid past him and reached back with his hand to slap the plate. "There was a lot of stuff going on there ... I saw in my peripheral, I saw him running," Donaldson said. "I didnt think he was going to be running because of how hard the ball was hit. ... If I make the throw I normally do, hes out." Murphy had only seven hits in his previous 51 at-bats before hits in three consecutive innings -- two singles before a double in the seventh. Robinson Chirinos and Murphy had consecutive one-singles in the sixth to chase Milone, who allowed six runs and eight hits. Martin and Kinsler greeted Dan Otero with consecutive RBI singles. Jaso, who was getting a break before Thursdays day game, had to come in after Norris was struck by a foul tip off Adrian Beltres bat in the sixth. Norris went down to his knees and stayed in that position for several minutes before being helped off the field. "Any time you get hit in the you-know-what, its not the best feeling in the world," Norris said. "Ive had my share of shots in that area being behind the plate, but that was by far the worse pain Ive ever been in. ... Still feeling it pretty good." When play resumed, Beltre hit an RBI double for an 8-3 lead. Grimm allowed three hits, struck out three and walked three. "He got us five and kept us in the game. Thats all we ask," Washington said. "We were able to do the rest for him." NOTES: Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland completed a three-game rehabilitation assignment going 6 for 9 with three doubles and a homer for Double-A Frisco. He is eligible to be reinstated Friday for the opener of a three-game series at St. Louis. ... Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito threw the ceremonial first pitch. ...
