. A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain.
. So much so that even a simple foul pop up to the first baseman turned into a run. Houstons four-run rally in the ninth inning to beat the Seattle Mariners 6-4 on Monday night was capped by a bizarre play that started as Crowe fouled out to first baseman Justin Smoak with runners on second and third.

The Rock acquired Merrill in a blockbuster trade in August from the New England Black Wolves (formerly the Philadelphia Wings) for a combination of players and draft picks. The runner-up for NLL Transition Player of the Year in 2014, had one-year remaining on his previous contract. The extension has him under contract through to the 2018 season. The contract gives me a chance to get settled for the long term and hopefully the rest of my career, said an excited Merrill. It is nice to have that commitment and put it behind me and just focus on playing and contributing. Merrill has also chosen to wear the number 37 with the Toronto Rock. He will wear the number in honour of good friend and former teammate Kyle Miller who wore it in Junior Lacrosse while the two played together in OOrangeville.dddddddddddd Kyle passed away in 2013 after a long battle with cancer and is also the brother of Rock goaltender Brandon Miller. The number also pays homage to another close friend of Merrills that lost his battle with cancer in 2012, Chris Sanderson. I have worn 17 my entire career but it is obviously not available here, explained Merrill. I gave it a lot of thought. To me, it is a combination between Chris Sanderson who wore 17 and Kyle Miller who wore both 35 and 37. The number has great meaning to me. Every time I put on that jersey, it will be a reminder of their legacy and what they meant to me. The two-time winner of the NLL Transition Player of the Year Award was one of three major additions to Torontos defensive corps over the off-season. Toronto has increased their depth and size on defence with the additions of Merrill, Jeff Gilbert (free agent) and Brock Sorensen (trade with Minnesota).
