Sussex 227 for 3 (Joyce 106) trail Glamorgan 335 (Rudolph 87, Selman 52, Whittingham 4-58) by 108 runsScorecard Division Twos leading run scorer Ed Joyce scored his third hundred of the season to help put Sussex in a good position against Glamorgan at Hove. Wholesale Shoes .Joyce made 106 to take his aggregate for the season to 838 as his side reached 227 for 3 in response to Glamorgans 335 for 9 at stumps on the second day.A slow pitch was ideal for someone with Joyces phlegmatic temperament. He seldom played a cross-batted shot and it was a surprise when he chopped on to Tim van der Gugten in the 60th over.Joyce survived one moment of alarm on 61 when Will Bragg put down a very difficult chance at slip off the debutant slow left-armer Owen Morgan, but Joyces ability to play straight and late once again paid dividends. He hit 14 fours in 177 balls faced.Joyce had shared an opening stand of 133 with Chris Nash although Nash struggled for timing. Normally a fast scorer, it took him 66 balls to lodge his first boundary but he appeared to be finding some fluency when he shaped to cut Morgan and was caught behind for 37.It was a deserved reward for Morgan, a 22-year-old slow left-armer from Swansea, who bowled with impressive control on his Championship debut. His efforts epitomised a persevering Glamorgan attack without their main strike bowler Michael Hogan who did not return after he ducked into a bouncer from Stuart Whittingham earlier in the day and was hit on the helmet.Hogan spent ten minutes regaining his composure but eventually decided he could no longer continue. His condition will be monitored overnight but he is expected to be able to bowl on Monday.With skipper Jacques Rudolph nursing a hand injury which will require an x-ray Glamorgan employed three substitute fielders including bowling coach David Harrison and Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait who has linked up with the squad as he prepares to play in their T20 side.Sussex were 176 for 2 when Joyce was out and had added just five runs when Ross Taylor was leg before playing across the line to Graham Wagg. But Luke Wells and skipper Luke Wright, who is playing his first Championship innings of the season at Hove, added an unbeaten 46 for the fourth wicket.Hogans retirement came after Glamorgan had added 44 runs to their overnight 291 for 7 during the morning. Both wickets fell to the impressive Whittingham who bowled with good pace in a spell of 8.1 overs which cost just 20 runs as he finished with a Championship best 4 for 58.Thomas was caught behind by a ball which seamed away before Rudolph, struggling after Whittingham struck him on the left hand, was caught at third man for 87 from 197 balls which was compiled in four and a half hours.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Lew Wolff is selling all but a small stake in the Oakland Athletics and giving up his managing partner role, turning over leadership of the franchise to John Fisher as the club seeks a new ballpark location.Wolff will become chairman emeritus and Fisher the managing partner. In addition, team president Michael Crowley is stepping away from day-to-day operations after nearly 20 years in the role but will advise the As ownership group. San Jose Earthquakes president Dave Kaval will fill Crowleys role while also keeping his same position with the MLS team.Baseball owners approved the leadership transition for Oakland during meetings Thursday in Chicago. Wolff and Fisher bought the As on April 1, 2005.I am pleased my dear friend of almost 25 years, John Fisher, will be even more involved, Wolff wrote in an email to The Associated Press. I will miss Mike Crowley, who has contributed so much to the As, and I welcome my somewhat newer friend, Dave Kaval, who will bring lots of talent and energy to the As. And, I will be able to watch games with a slight degree of less stress, not much but a little!Wolff had been committed to keeping the As in Oakland but previously wanted to move the team to San Jose and build an intimate new ballpark.Former commissioner Bud Selig never ruled on whether the As can move into the San Francisco Giants cherished territory in technology-rich Silicon Valley. New commissioner Rob Manfred said last month he would like to see the club stay put.Manfred hinted at change when he spoke during the NLL Division Series between the Cubs and Giants at San Franciscos AT&T Park, saying more would be known about the As situation soon. Shoes China. Manfred noted that Fisher has become more heavily involved in the ballpark planning and has made multiple trips to New York to meet with Manfred and MLB.In addition, Manfred said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf told him the city is committed to keeping the As in town, and she would also like the NFLs Raiders to stay.I want to thank Lew for his leadership over the last 11 years, Fisher said. His initiative and love of the game of baseball brought my family to the As, and we would not be involved without him. Lew has given the organization all of his energy and experience for the last 11 years and I look forward to a new chapter in our working relationship and friendship. It is a privilege for me to steward the As at this important moment for the franchise.The small-budget As won consecutive AL West titles in 2012 and 13, losing in five games of the division series to the Detroit Tigers in both years. But they still consider a new ballpark the top priority to be a regular contender. Oaklands payroll of $87 million, pending award bonuses and adjustments, is above only Tampa Bay and Milwaukees.The run-down Coliseum, shared with the Raiders and the last venue with both Major League Baseball and football, had multiple sewage problems in 2013 that caused damage during games.
