SANTA CLARA , Calif. (AP) — San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan knows his team can go in one of two directions with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft.Take the top available pass rusher to help upgrade a defense that struggled to create takeaways last year or move down in the draft and accumulate additional draft picks.Which direction the 49ers go, remains to be seen.“You know you’re going to get a good player with the second pick, and that really helps your organization for a number of years, having that rookie contract,” Shanahan said.“If you can add anything with a trade that you feel can improve your team more, you don’t hesitate to do that. Things come up, and I know they’ll continue to come up all the way until draft day. I know we’re going to get a good player at No. 2, and if not, it’s because we’re getting a very good trade at No. 2. It should be a win-win regardless.”The decision on what to do may not be made until after Arizona decides what to do with the top pick. If the Cardinals go ahead and take quarterback Kyle Murray first overall, it might take a mega offer to persuade the Niners to trade down and pass up the top projected defensive end in Ohio State’s Nick Bosa or defensive tackle in Quinnen Williams.But if Bosa ends up going first, the 49ers might be willing to move down and take one of the several other available edge rushers in a deep draft at the position, especially if another team is willing to trade a premium to move up for Murray.However the draft plays out, the Niners want to get an impact defensive player to team with new pass rusher Dee Ford to improve a defense that set an NFL record for futility with just seven takeaways last season.“The better your pass rush is, that hides a lot of problems Parris Campbell Jersey ,” Shanahan said. “We’ve been pretty stacked with some inside pass rush, adding an outside pass rush has been of huge importance to us, and it started with getting Dee.”Here are some other things to watch in the draft:ADDING PICKSOne reason the Niners might be eager to trade down is the fact they have only six picks coming into the draft. San Francisco has no picks in the fifth or seventh rounds, but does have a compensatory pick in the sixth. Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have shown an affinity for moving around in the draft the past two years, trading down from No. 2 in 2017 and then back into the first round to grab Reuben Foster. San Francisco also moved up in the second round last year to take WR Dante Pettis.CATCH IT WHILE YOU CANFinding a receiver will likely be a priority in the draft with the second or third round a likely spot to go in that direction. Pettis showed some positive signs as a rookie and Marquise Goodwin has proven to be an adequate deep threat when healthy.But San Francisco could use another option in the intermediate game to team with prolific TE George Kittle. Jordan Matthews was signed this offseason, but has had problems with injuries throughout his career and isn’t seen as the long-term answer.SAFETY FIRSTSan Francisco was expected to be in the running for a starting free safety in free agency, but opted not to get into a bidding war for Earl Thomas and brought back oft-injured Jimmie Ward instead. Adrian Colbert, who showed promise as a seventh-round pick in 2017, struggled last year before being sidelined with a season-ending ankle injury and the team could seek an upgrade.AROUND THE CORNERRichard Sherman played well in his first season in San Francisco, but the other cornerback spot was a problem all year as 2017 third-rounder Ahkello Witherspoon struggled. Injury-plagued Jason Verrett was signed in the offseason, but can’t be counted on to stay healthy. Finding a rookie to compete for that spot figures to be a priority and San Francisco also needs to start looking for a replacement down the road for the 31-year-old Sherman.JUST FOR KICKSThe Niners lost punter Bradley Pinion in free agency and could be in the market for a new one despite signing Justin Vogel in the offseason. San Francisco would like a punter who can also handle kickoffs since franchise-tagged kicker Robbie Gould hasn’t done that in recent years. Stanford’s Jake Bailey could be a late-round option, especially if San Francisco is able to add a couple of additional picks to fill other needs.
Erick Fedde will step on the mound Friday night for the eighth time in his major league career still in search of his first win. He might get it if he can replicate his recent success against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fedde will try to help the Washington Nationals stop a three-game losing streak on Friday night in the second of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies will send Nick Pivetta to the mound for his second straight start against Washington.

Facing the Phillies last Saturday, Fedde (0-3, 5.32 ERA) had the best outing of his brief major league career. He went six-plus innings Will Harris Jersey , giving up three runs on eight hits while inducing 13 ground balls. However, the Phillies scored two runs in the eighth inning in a 5-3 win.

“I thought Fedde did a tremendous job,” Nationals catcher Spencer Kieboom told after the game. “I couldn’t be more proud of him. He did, he mixed all five pitches — sliders, curveballs, changeups, cutters in, fastballs. He did a good job. I thought he attacked hitters and at the beginning, we were kind of (nibbling), but after that he really attacked.”

Fedde, 25, has pitched at least five innings in all four of his 2018 starts with the Nationals.

Saturday’s game was his first career appearance against the Phillies.

Pivetta (4-6, 4.06) also had a solid outing without a win last weekend. On Sunday night, Pivetta stayed in the game after a rain delay to complete five innings in Washington. He gave up eight hits but just two runs and notched seven strikeouts before the Nationals rallied against the Philadelphia bullpen.

The right-hander has a 5.81 ERA and opponents are hitting .301 against Pivetta in five June starts , but he has allowed just four runs and recorded 20 strikeouts in his last two appearances (12 1/3 innings).

Pivetta was acquired by the Phillies from Washington in exchange for reliever Jonathan Papelbon during the 2015 season. He is 0-2 with a 9.19 ERA in four career starts against the Nationals. His May 4 start against the Nationals has a lot to do with the high ERA, because he gave up six runs in one inning.

The Phillies opened the series with a 4-3 win on Thursday night. At 43-36, the Phillies are two games ahead of the Nationals (41-38) and just two games behind the Braves for first place in the National League East.

Philadelphia has won its last two games and Rhys Hoskins homered in both. In Thursday night’s series opener, the left fielder went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run homer, his 13th of the season.

“Rhys had another huge (homer) for us,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters after his team improved to 4-3 against the Nationals this season.

Hoskins, 25, is hitting .329 with seven homers and 20 RBIs in 18 games during June, raising his season average to .260 and his OPS to .871. Hoskins has just a .224 average in 14 career games against the Nationals, but eight of his 11 hits have gone for extra bases.

Washington, which managed to score three runs — two in the ninth inning — after being shut out in consecutive games, has lost 10 of 13.

Om oss

Den skyldiga till™ är en biltokig skåning i sina bästa dagar vid namn Anders ”BamZe” Gunnarsson. Det var även BamZe som grundade Volvoforum från första början år 2006. Konceptet var att vi ville ha ett forum där alla som var intresserade av Volvo samlades. Yngre som äldre med nya som gamla bilar men med en och samma sak gemensamt, Volvo!

Målet med Volvoforum är att det ska vara en samlingsplats för alla Volvoentusiaster. Ett forum där man ska kunna finna allt ifrån info om problemlösning till olika träffar och företagserbjudanden. Vi har sett en del danska och norska användare på senare tid, men vi siktar på att hålla det på svensk nivå just nu. Våra idéer och tankar går i att vi ska åka runt i Sverige på både träffar och evenemang och visa upp att vi finns.
