Danny Willett was left encouraged by a strong start to the week on home soil as he made an early move at the BMW PGA Championship. The Masters champion carded a bogey-free 66 to sit one off the pace at Wentworth, trailing Scott Hend, former champion Y.E Yang and Joost Luiten.Willett, who was in contention at last weeks Irish Open before struggling over the weekend, followed three birdies on the front nine with three more after the turn to become the only player to sign a blemish-free card. This week is Willetts first appearance in England since last months victory at Augusta and the world No 9, whose best finish at Wentworth saw him fifth on his debut in 2010, admits enjoying his home return. Stats-wise, we probably didnt hit loads of fairways but were never in too much trouble, Willett added. Hit some great mid to short irons and rolled a few putts in.Its always nice when you come off bogey-free. It means youve played some real good golf and youve not given any stupid shots away to the golf course. Highlights from day one of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth I played the par-fives particularly average in fairness, after relatively good drives on most of them. It could have been a really good day, but its a good, solid start to the week.Playing alongside Victor Dubuisson and Soomin Lee, Willett made a bright start with a birdie-two at the second.Being followed by large crowd, the Englishman added gains at the sixth and eighth and saw another birdie chance at the ninth lip out to reach the turn in 32. Willett is playing the event for the seventh year running The world No 9 picked up a shot at the 10th and rolled in a 10-footer at the 14th to get to five under, before getting up-and-down to leave a close-range gain at the par-five 17th.Needing another birdie at the last to join the leading group, Willett elected to lay up for par to stay one adrift of the early pacesetters. Last week in Ireland was fantastic, but there was a little bit more support out there being a home boy in England, Willett added. They dont have to be here and they dont have to come out supporting, but they do.The greens are in a little better than I think they were last year and the last couple years, and I think everyone would agree with that. Hopefully if it stays like this, so well get a nice, easy full-flowing week.Weve played pretty solid over the last few years and were up there in contention a few years back with Luke Donald in the last round.This is a place I enjoy. I enjoy the golf course and I enjoy the challenge of it. You just hope for four good days of weather and keep the crowds coming in, and then you never know.Watch the BMW PGA Championship throughout the week live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: Willett shines at Wentworth Lowry four off the pace First round leaderboard Donald off to fast start 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. -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football.

SEATTLE -- Canadian welterweight Rory (Ares) MacDonald was greeted by a mixture of boos and cheers as he weighed in Friday in for his UFC bout against Jake (The Juggernaut) Ellenberger. The 24-year-old from Kelowna, B.C., who trains out of Montreal, didnt get much of a reception from Ellenberger either. The 28-year-old American, who had drawn cheers and a few chants of U.S.A., stood with his hands on his hips as MacDonald struck up a fighting pose in front of him on the stage at KeyArena. But UFC president Dana White applauded both men, anticipating what is expected to be a key fight among 170-pound contenders. Ellenberger weighed in at 171 pounds to 170.5 for MacDonald. Flyweight champion Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson and challenger John Moraga both weighed in at 124.5 pounds. They meet in Saturdays televised main event. There were no fireworks at the weigh-in although lightweight Tim (Dirty Bird) Means tipped the scales at 160 pounds, missing by four pounds, for his bout against Danny Castillo. In his defence, the six-foot-two Means only took the fight on July 11 after Castillos original opponent, Bobby Green, wass injured.dddddddddddd Castillo came out in a black-tuxedo-and-lime-green shirt, which he ripped away prior to standing on the scales.

Masvidal made it but Albert didnt, meaning like Means he will forfeit 20 per cent of his purse to his opponent. Albert faces Yaotzin Meza while Masvidal takes on Michael Chiesa. The Masvidal-Chiesa staredown was tense -- doubtless the result of some intemperate words from Masvidal in the run-up to the card. Masvidal had objected to Chiesas bushy beard. Later Friday, Chiesa tweeted that the state athletic commission had approved the beard. Bantamweights Jessica Andrade (134) and Liz Carmouche (136) both made weight for their bout, the first in the UFC between openly lesbian fighters. The card features another womens matchup between bantamweights Germaine de Randamie (135) and Julie Kedzie (135.5).

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Pete Rose is appealing directly to baseballs Hall of Fame to restore his eligibility, arguing the lifetime ban he agreed to in 1989 was never intended to keep him out of Cooperstown.A seven-page letter to Hall president Jeff Idelson on Tuesday makes the case that the settlement agreement reached by Rose and then-Commissioner Bart Giamatti didnt include a provision that he be ineligible for election to the Hall of Fame.At the time Pete agreed to the settlement, the consequences of being placed on the ineligible list were clear and specific -- and did not include a Hall of Fame prohibition, according to the letter, signed by Roses longtime attorney Raymond C. Genco and attorney Mark Rosenbaum.The Hall of Fame changed its bylaws two years after Roses banishment to make permanently banned players ineligible for the Hall, which shut out the career hits leader as long as he remained barred from baseball.Genco is asking the Hall to amend that bylaw specifically to allow Rose to be eligible for baseball writers to elect at their discretion. He makes the point that the banishments of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays for their association with casinos didnt affect their Hall status, and even Shoeless Joe Jackson had remained eligible after he was banned from the game for accepting money to throw the 1919 World Series.We believe that the institution of Baseball will be strengthened by this act of grace -- an act that would give Pete Rose the same treatment that every other Major League Baseball player and manager received throoughout the first 55 years of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the letter said. Cheap Air Jordan Shoes. Hall spokesman Jon Shestakofsky said Wednesday that Idelson had not seen the letter and has not commented. In a previous statement, Idelson said,Pete Rose remains ineligible for Hall of Fame consideration, based on the Hall of Fames bylaws, which preclude any individual on baseballs ineligible list from being considered for election.New baseball commissioner Rob Manfred in December?denied the 75-year-old Roses latest petition for reinstatement, but Genco said Manfred opened the door by also stating that it wasnt Manfreds responsibility to determine whether Rose should be eligible for the Hall. Petitioning the Hall to change the rule, Genco said, was the next logical step.Genco noted that Manfred had allowed Rose to participate recently in some ceremonial activities, including the retirement of his number by the Cincinnati Reds and his induction into the Reds Hall of Fame in June.This play may only bring further scrutiny to Pete, Genco said. He may not get in. It may open a magnifying glass on Pete Roses transgressions, but if you look at it from a fundamental fairness point of view, I think we have good footing. We have a very reasonable argument where the board can take very reasonable action in their power to bring real closure to this.Spokesman Michael Teevan said MLB had no comment on Roses latest appeal.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Austin Dillon is on the pole for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas two weeks after a heartbreaking finish knocked him out of the championship Chase. Cheap Air Max 2015 .We missed the Chase by just 2 feet. We want to prove that we can win a race by the end of this year, Dillon said.Dillon had a fast lap of 192.301 mph in the final round of qualifying Friday to earn his third career pole.Joey Logano qualified second, and he will be the highest starter Sunday in the AAA Texas 500 of the eight drivers still eligible for the season championship. His best lap in the final session was 192.269 mph.The other Chase contenders to qualify in the top 10 were Kevin Harvick (third), Matt Kenseth (seventh), Carl Edwards (ninth) and Kurt Busch (10th). Denny Hamlin will star 17th.Jimmie Johnson is the only driver locked into one of the four spots for the title-deciding race at Homestead in two weeks. He also has won the past four fall races at the 1.5-mile, high-banked Texas track, but he qualified 19th on Friday.Defending Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch had the second-fastest time in the first round of qualifying while in a backup car after wrecking on the first lap of practice earlier in the day. But he will start 24th, the lowest of the Chase contenders, after never taking the lap for the second round of qualifying because of a water leak on pit road.Adam Stevens, crew chief for the No. 18, said the issue was an aftereffect of the earlier wreck, with a radiator hose not getting properly clamped down after an engine switch.When Hamlin had a frantic ending to finish third at Talladega on Oct. 23 to end the second round of the playoffs, he tied Dillon for the eighth in season points. Hamlin had the tiebreaker to get the final spot in the round of eight.Dillon said just being in the Chase this season helped the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing team.I felt like together as a team, our team is very strong. Weve just been missing here and there, he said. It is going to be good to have another year with this group of guys to see what we can do next year.Logano, who is fifth in points, qualified on the front row for the second consecutive weekend. It is also the second race in a row at Texas he will start second -- he finished third in the April race.We are mad about second, and that is when you know your team is in a good spot, Logano said. We are starting close to the front. That is just too many seconds. Second always stings, and we were second here in the spring and here we are again and last week as well. Cheap Air Max 270 .

According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. SUZUKA, Japan -- McLaren-Hondas lack of competitiveness during qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix is not just down to the power units lack of power, according to team bosses Eric Boullier and Yusuke Hasegawa.Despite talking up its chances in the build-up to the weekend, the McLaren-Hondas qualified 15th and 17th at the Japanese engine manufacturers home race. The result came just one week after Jenson Button qualified ninth at the Malaysian Grand Prix and Fernando Alonso overcame a 45-place grid penalty to finish seventh.McLaren has previously boasted about having one of the best chassis on the grid, but in Japan it qualified behind both Toro Rossos, which use a less powerful, year-old Ferrari power unit. McLaren racing director Boullier admitted the problem in Suzuka was not simply a lack of power, but a lack of performance from the chassis as well.We [McLaren and Honda] both do everything we can, he said. Obviously Honda entered Formula One not a very long time ago, so they are still obviously catching up with the others. We have decided on the McLaren side to reset our car philosophy last year, so we are catching up as well.There are some car attitudes that are conditioned by some kinds of corners where we are not the best. We know we are the best in some other type of corners, because there is some GPS traces available on the market to compare. This track doesnt suit our chassis and obviously oon the engine side we are not on the same performance level of Mercedes, so both combined make it a difficult weekend for us. Cheap Air Max Light. On other track layouts we are surprisingly better just because for the same reasons we can exploit better the PU and we can use the car in some different attitudes where we know we are strong and we can be maybe the best chassis as well in some conditions.Asked where the McLaren would be with a Mercedes power unit, Boullier added: I dont think this weekend it would be at the top of the grid, but it would definitely be in a much better position.Honda F1 boss Hasegawa added: Its very tough [in Suzuka] and its a challenge for everything -- for the power unit, the downforce and the driver as well. Of course we need more power and maybe we can improve substantially [in all areas], apart from driver performance, I think.He joked: The positive side is Im proud we have some very good sake!Alonso took the 45-place grid penalty in Malaysia in order to use Hondas new and updated engine without penalty in Japan.Of course it is very disappointing and we expect more, Hasegawa said. The car characteristics are not suited to this circuit, so it is very unfortunate. But we took a great penalty in Malaysia, which was in preparation for this event of course.

DETROIT -- Tigers centre fielder Austin Jackson has been put on the 15-day disabled list because of a pulled left hamstring. Womens Air Jordan 5 Retro . The team announced the move Monday. It is retroactive to Sunday, when Jackson missed a game against Cleveland following the injury. The Tigers recalled outfielder Avisail Garcia from Triple-A Toledo. Jackson is hitting .272 with a team-high five stolen bases. Detroit must now play on with a new leadoff hitter -- and the Tigers will miss Jacksons defence in the spacious outfield at Comerica Park.

BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Jeff Gordon, who came out of retirement to substitute for Dale Earnhardt Jr.?while Earnhardt recovers from a concussion, wont race next week at Michigan International Speedway.Earnhardt could return next week if cleared by doctors, but if he is out, Gordon said Friday a previous commitment for next Friday and Saturday would keep him from making a fifth consecutive start in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 car.I am not able to be in the car at Michigan, Gordon said after qualifying Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway. I had some other obligations. ... Its just a prior commitment I had already made.I didnt know I was going to be doing all this.Alex Bowman, who substituted for Earnhardt last month at New Hampshire, is set to replace Earnhardt if he isnt cleared for Michigan, where NASCAR will use a potential 2017 rules package that reduces downforce from the regular 2016 package.Gordon said he could race Labor Day weekend at Darlington if asked. Gordon has finishes of 13th, 27th and 14th in his three starts since being out of the car after the 2015 season finale. He had spent the first half of 2016 transitioning to a new phase of his life as a member of the Fox Sports broadcast team.I was enjoying my summer a lot, Gordon said. To go from my experience [vacationing] in France and how relaxing that was to the intensity level at Indy, it was a big wake-up call for me.Every week that Im in the car, I get more comfortable and I get inn a place where I feel I can contribute more and ramp my intensity level up along with the competition. Red Air Jordan 5 Retro. . You cant just be out of it for six months and jump in and expect that to come naturally -- not for me anyway.The four-time Sprint Cup champion will be at the track Aug. 28 at Michigan for sponsor Axalta but said it would be unfair to have someone practice and qualify the car and then him race it if Earnhardt cant compete.It doesnt make sense, Gordon said. Im pretty sure Alex Bowman would be in the car. It wouldnt be fair to him. It wouldnt be fair to this team.I am not sure Im even the best choice for that package at that race.Gordon had his best qualifying effort of his four replacement races Friday, as he will start 11th on Saturday in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race.With five career wins at the track, capping his career with his 801st start at Bristol wouldnt be a bad send-off for Gordon. He hasnt won at the track since 2002, so if he could have a drop-the-mic moment with a win, it would be the perfect scenario.Its one of my favorite tracks, if not my favorite, Gordon said. Its a spectacular place to race, especially at night. Right now, Im just happy to make it [the final qualifying round] and try to find ways to improve on what weve done so far.I dont want to get too far ahead of ourselves.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM ROUND 18 IN THE AFLTHEY SAID IT: It is a devastating night for many reasons ... Its a traumatic night and itll test us, Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge talks about how upset his players are after Mitch Wallis suffered a broken leg during Saturdays loss to St Kilda.STATS THAT MATTER: 66-37. That was the inside-50 count won by Melbourne, who dominated all the key statistics but fell six points short of West Coast in Perth. It is just the fourth time since 1998 that a side has been belted so comprehensively in inside-50s but won.MAN OF THE ROUND: Sam Menegola. Tallied 26 possessions on debut to help Geelong record a 30-point win over Adelaide. The 24-year-old was forced to wait a long time for his chance, having previously been on the rookie list of Hawthorn and Fremantle.KEY MOMENT: Callum Mills claims an intercept mark in the final minute of a tight clash at the SCG.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Nike Air Max 98 Orange . -- Get used to seeing wide receivers in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers, at least while they wait for their injured running backs to return.The Packers already used the look at times as a wrinkle with Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery. They leaned on the scheme heavily in the 26-10 win on Thursday night over the Chicago Bears.It could be an offensive staple when the Packers next play on Oct. 30 against Atlanta.You try to create opportunities and have a vision and build a plan based off of your availability of your players week in and week out, coach Mike McCarthy said Friday.Montgomery and Cobb are versatile pass catchers. They were willing to take on extra responsibilities, with Green Bays offense having a productive night in its first game without injured running back Eddie Lacy. Montgomery took most of the Packers 81 snaps, a season high, at running back.I didnt have that many plays in the backfield since, like, eighth grade, I think, Montgomery said with a laugh after the game. But it was a lot of fun, though.Montgomery had nine carries for a team-high 60 yards, highlighted by a 30-yard run early in the third quarter that started a 13-play, 85-yard touchdown drive to regain the lead at 13-10.Montgomery also tied a career-high with 10 catches for 66 yards, joining Davante Adams and Cobb in double figures for receptions as Aaron Rodgers set a single-game franchise record with 39 completions.As the play-caller, McCarthy took responsibility for not giving Cobb a carry out of the backfield in the loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. McCarthy said the plan was to have Cobb get four or five carries in that game.On Thursday, Cobb ranked second on the team with five carries for 21 yards. He also tied a career high with 11 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown as Rodgers relied on quick, short passing.Guys were really stepping up and filling positions where we just didnt have anybody left, offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga said. They were making big plays.Lacy is on injured reserve and must sit out at least eight weeks because of an ankle injury. James Starks is sidelined indefinitely after knee surgery last weekend.That left the Packers with two newcomers at running back Thursday: undrafted rookie Don Jackson and fourth-year pro Knile Davis, who was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs this week.Jackson had only two carries for 6 yards before leaving with a hand injury in the second quarter. His status for the Falcons game is uncertain. Davis, who had a kickoff return, didnt enter the game on offense until the second half and had only two carries for a yard.If hes needed as a running back again, Montgomery will be ready.Im a football player, and as a football player, I can do anything thats asked of me, he said.---AP NFL website: and Cheap Air Max 98 Mens . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time.

LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Wyoming running back Brian Hill says he and the offensive line feed off of each others hard work during a game.If I can give them what they need, they can give what I need, Hill said after rushing for 207 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-22 win over UC Davis on Saturday.It is the sixth time Hill has rushed for more than 200 yards in a game during his three-year college career. He is now ranked third on Wyomings all-time rushing list.Hill carried the ball 25 times for an average of 8.3 yards per carry as the Cowboys (2-1) gashed the Aggies defense for 274 rushing yards.Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes as Wyoming dominated its FCS opponent on both sides of the ball.I thought the keys to the game were our ability to control and maintain the line of scrimmage and it got a running game going, Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said.Allen completed 11 of 15 passes for 198 yards. He had TD passes of 16, 39 and 37 yards to three different receivers.UC Davis (1-2) was led by Ben Scott, who completed 18 of 31 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with an injury to his left leg. He also had one interception.THE TAKEAWAYAfter throwing five interceptions and fumbling once the previous week at Nebraska, Allen needed to bounce back for his own sake and for the team. On Wyomings first possession against UC Davis, Allen connected for 17 yards to Jacob Hollister and on a 16-yard TD to Tanner Gentry. Allen lost a fumble in the second quarter that safety Keleen Culberson returned 21 yards for a score.Allen said he was upset by the fumble that led to a score by the Aggies.As an offense we were able to get past that, he said.He ended the day with no interceptions and no more fumbles while tossing three TD passes. Air Max 98 White. UC Davis entered the game averaging 504.5 yards of total offense thanks to running back Manusamoa Luuga, who averaged 120.5 yards a game, and Scott, who was averaging 342 yards passing a contest. However, against the Cowboys defense, the yards didnt come so easily as the Aggies managed just 74 yards on the ground and Scott was held to 178 yards total passing.Offensively, we couldnt get the run game going, Aggies coach Ron Gould said. I knew going in they had a really, really good defense. They got us on our heels a little bit.NOTABLESWyoming junior cornerback Rico Gafford had his first interception as a Cowboy and returned it 32 yards to set up Wyomings second touchdown of the game. Defensive end Carl Granderson had a sack and a forced fumble and has now recorded a sack in each of the three games this season. He is the first defensive lineman at Wyoming to record a sack in his first three games since 1986.UP NEXTWyoming: The Cowboys spend the next two weekends on the road, beginning with a non-conference visit to Eastern Michigan. It will be Wyomings second game this season against a member of the Mid-American Conference. In the first game this season, the Cowboys beat Northern Illinois 40-34 in triple overtime.UC Davis: The Aggies open Big Sky Conference play at home next Saturday when they host Weber State.

It followed his debut practice run at the British Grand Prix and an outing with Ferrari during the two-day in-season test at Silverstone.When asked if he feels he could follow in the footsteps of Valtteri Bottas and Daniil Kvyat in making the jump straight from GP3 to F1, the Monegasque replied: Yeah, I think so. Well see then with the opportunity I get at the end of the year, but obviously if there is an opportunity, I will jump on it.The more laps I do, the more confident I feel in the car -- it was already better than in Silverstone, I felt a lot more confidence. I definitely need to win [GP3], and then we will see.Under the current FIA regulations, drivers must accumulate a total of 40 superlicence points to qualify for an F1 drive. The 18-year-old already has 17 super licence points -- as a result of finishing runner-up in the 2014 Formula Renault 2.0 Alps and fourth in last years Formula 3 European Championship -- but would have to win this years GP3 crown (worth 30 points) in order to qualify for a place on next seasons grid.Leclerc admitted that Haas, which is yet to announce its driver line-up for 2017, would be an option if he can convert a title-winning campaign in GP3.Of course. But well see in September. For now, I dont know anything more. . Miller finished in two minutes, 6.09 seconds, one day before the first medal race on the Alpine schedule.

HOUSTON -- With right-hander Collin McHugh producing six scoreless innings on the heels of the scoreless start delivered by rookie right-hander Joe Musgrove the evening before, the Astros might be on the brink of creating the momentum with their starting pitching that theyll need entering a rigorous stretch of their schedule. .After completing their three-game series with Oakland on Wednesday, the Astros (70-62) will contest a make-or-break run of 13 games against first-place teams in Texas (away and home), Cleveland (away), and the Chicago Cubs (home). And while the Astros will need help from their inconsistent offense and exceptional bullpen, their rotation will set the pace over the next couple of weeks.Were going to need our starting pitching to pitch well to get where we want to get, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Were going to expand rosters in September and bring up a little more velocity and have a couple different options, but the tone has always been set on this team by our starting pitchers. And weve always felt very comfortable with a lead so we all have to work in conjunction. The tone that the starters have been able to set getting into games, we generally win those games.Right-hander Mike Fiers (9-6, 4.40 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Astros in the series finale with Oakland, against whom he has struggled in two starts this season.Fiers, whose last scoreless start came on July 1 against the White Sox, is 0-1 with a 6.74 ERA against the Athletics, having allowed eight runs on 12 hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts over 10 2/3 innings. Fiers is winless in five career starts against Oakland, going 0-2 with a 4.76 ERA.Left-hander Ross Detwiler, selected from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 10, will make his fifth start for Oakland (57-75). Detwiler (1-3, 5.74 ERA) has allowed 14 runs in 14 innings over three starts, all losses, after tossing eight scoreless innings in his first start with the Athletics. He was traded to Oakland from Cleveland on July 17.Detwiler is 1-0 with a 2.38 ERA in five career appearances (three starts) against Houston. While the Astros are seeking to build momentum through their rotation for a postseason berth, the Athletics are looking toward development, with right-hander Kendall Graveman pitching well yet again despite taking a 3-1 loss Tuesday.Graveman is 9-3 with a 3.36 ERA over his last 17 starts. Entering Tuesday, his eight wins since June 23 were tied for third most in the American League, and while the Astros bested him with a pair of home runs from Colby Rasmus and Evan Gattis, Graveman showed again that he just might be turning a developmental corner.This is a guy that we felt like when we made the trade (with the Blue Jays on Nov. 28, 2014) had a high ceiling, Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. Hes shown spurts similar to the ways hes pitching, maybe not this consistent, but hes really taken ownership of the fact that hes the last of the Mohicans here as far as the starters we have and has really pitched like a guy who wants to pitch in the top of the rotation. His numbers would suggest he has here recently. . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. Match factsWednesday, 23 November Start time 0930 local (0730 GMT)Big PictureDespite West Indies big win in Harare, on paper, these are two well-matched teams with plenty to play for: the winner will be guaranteed their place in the tri-series final. The relative inexperience in both squads makes it hard to pick an out-and-out favourite, and conditions in Bulawayo should also be a leveller. West Indies tied game against Zimbabwe will at least have acclimatised them a little more to the pitch and conditions at Queens, as Sri Lankas first match was rained off.Sri Lanka also have some ground to make up against West Indies after their trouncing in Harare. Their middle order remains unproven, and if this series can be viewed as something of an audition for the upcoming tour of South Africa, there will be several young players hungry to state their case - particularly against the greater firepower of West Indies quicks.Youth and international inexperience are also in no short supply for West Indies at the moment. It is obviously very early days yet, but without a head coach, and with virtually all of West Indies established senior batsmen in the wilderness, young captain Jason Holder desperately needs his peers to gel into a new core for the side. Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaites promising form will give him something to build and bank on, while Carlos Brathwaites bowling has been fairly effective in Zimbabwe.Both for this team and for the immediate future of West Indies cricket, every win is an important one in these circumstances. Though still ninth in the ICC ODI rankings, they are just one point behind Pakistan, and a strong show in their remaining games will put them within touching distance of Bangladesh at No. 7. Between now and September 30, 2017, the cut-off date for direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup, West Indies currently have 11 ODIs scheduled (not including the final of this tri-series), but eight of those matches are against a resurgent England ODI side, and five of those are in England. Thats a tough assignment for what could still be a fairly inexperienced squad, and so West Indies have a lot more than a place in Sundays final to play for tomorrow.Form guide(Last five completed matches, most recent first)Sri Lanka: LWLLLWest Indies: TWLLLIn the spotlightShai Hopes good form will buoy West Indies, and make him a target for Sri Lanka, while Suranga Lakmal will have to be at his best behaviour after he was fined 50% of his match fee for aggressively throwing the ball towards Zimbabwe opener Chamu Chibhabha during Mondays wash-out. Yet, the spotlight might be focussed on what is happening above Queens, rather than on the ground.All three teams will have an eye on the weather on Wednesday. If there is another wash-out, Zimbabwe will effectively be out of the running, needing a massive bonus-point win to draw level and increase their net run-rate. The threat of rain also makes the toss important - inclement weather is more likely in the afternoon, meaning there could be Duckworth-Lewis permutations while chasing. Finally, the drainage issues at Queens mean that even relatively modest rain could rule a match out entirely.There are two main areas of concern on the outfield, should it rain again - on the northern side of the ground, and also near the sight screen at the Airport End. Should there be any significant showers during this game, in the absence of a super sopper, drainage will be an issue, especially after the heavy rains of the last few days have saturated the soil.Teams newsSri Lankas XI barely got a look-in on Monday, and given that conditions are likely to be identical, there is no reason for Sri Lanka to fiddle with their line-up. The grip on this slow surface makes Dasun Shanaka a good pick.Sri Lanka (possible): 1 Dhananjaya de Silva, 2 Kusal Perera, 3 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Upul Tharanga (capt), 6 Asela Gunaratne, 7 Dasun Shanaka, 8 Sachith Pathirana, 9 Nuwan Kulasekara, 10 Suranga Lakmal, 11 Jeffrey VandersayWith two wickets in his last five games, and none in this series, the form of Sulieman Benn will be a worry for West Indies. Aside from Ashley Nurse, the other spin option in their squad is Devendra Bishoo, and given his gritty performance in the Tests against Pakistan last month, this change makes sense. Another player they might want to give a game to is Jason Mohammed, the hard-hitting middle-order batsman, though West Indies may want to secure their place in the final before tinkering with their top-six.West Indies (possible): 1 Johnson Charles, 2 Kraigg Brathwaite, 3 Evin Lewis, 4 Shai Hope (wk), 5 Jonathan Carter, 6 Rovman Powell, 7 Jason Holder (c), 8 Carlos Brathwaite, 9 Ashley Nurse, 10 Devendra Bishoo, 11 Shannon Gabriel.Pitch and conditionsThe heavy downpours on Monday morning were followed by sunny and dry weather in the afternoon as well as the following day. Yet, the rainfall patterns at this time of the year are difficult to predict, and though the forecast suggests that Wednesday should be sunny and dry, some sort of precipitation is out of the question. Weather aside, there should be some early movement for the seamers who will be aided by cloud cover, as well as what appears to be a shade more green grass that has been left on the track for Wednesdays match. The track will probably still slow down to help the spinners later in the day.Stats and triviaWith 148 runs from two innings, Shai Hope is the leading run-scorer of the tri-series as well as the only century-maker.Shannon Gabriel, Carlos Brathwaite and Nuwan Kulasekara top the wickets table with five each, although Kulasekara has played one more (albeit truncated) game than the two West Indians.West Indies have played six ODIs at Queens Sports Club, winning three.In eight ODIs against West Indies, Kulasekara has taken 12 wickets at 22.08.QuotesWe know were playing good cricket. We had a good win against Sri Lanka [in Harare]. These lads work very hard on their fitness, and we do a lot of fielding drills in the days leading up to these matches, and the combination of those two things is starting to pay dividends. Were looking like a good fielding side, and at this level of the game, every run you stop is a run you dont have to score. West Indies batting coach Toby Radford has been most pleased with the young batsmen on this tour, but he has also noticed improvements in the field.

Each member of our NFL Insiders panel offers his pick for the best 25-and-under quarterback in the league. Marcos Rojo Jersey . Plus: Offensive coordinators who have been the most impressive, and grades of?Aaron Rodgers performance so far this season.Which 25-and-under QB would you like for the long term?Matt Bowen, NFL writer:?Oakland Raiders quarterback?Derek Carr?is the pick because of his development this season and the tremendous upside to his game. Carr has top-tier arm strength and the athleticism to make plays off rhythm, and weve seen growth in the pocket. Carr can throw from multiple platforms and anticipate windows with touch passes, and he is using his entire toolbox to attack opposing secondaries. But along with the numbers this year -- 17 touchdowns and just three interceptions -- the tape shows us the quick rise in Carrs learning curve. Hes beating pressure and winning in critical game situations. The young QB has a super-high ceiling and is an ideal fit for todays NFL game, which features a blend of pro-style and spread concepts.John Clayton, senior NFL writer:?Id go with Carr. As one GM put it, Carrs release and the way he pinpoints some throws reminds him of Tom Brady. Carr also has that Brett Favre fearlessness. I like the fact that hes perfecting comeback wins. Plus, he wins games on the road, and thats tough for any 25-and-under quarterback. Theres a good young group of QBs -- but Carr is at the head of that class. You also like the fact that he is a good pocket passer and doesnt have to rely on his legs to make plays; that gives him more longevity in the league. Carr has it all. It will be interesting to see how quickly he starts to move up into the group of elite quarterbacks. That is coming.

Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday.PHOENIX -- Jason Kubels legs are feeling better and the Arizona Diamondbacks are reaping the benefits. Kubel hit a two-run single in the ninth inning to rally the Diamondbacks past Aroldis Chapman and the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Saturday night for their fourth straight victory. "Its just being comfortable," said Kubel, who missed two weeks this season with a strained left quadriceps. "Im not searching or cheating on pitches. I finally feel like I have two legs under me and Im using them now." Kubels big hit came shortly after Jay Bruces second home run of the game gave the Reds a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth. Paul Goldschmidt lined a leadoff single in the bottom half that deflected off the glove of first baseman Joey Votto and into right field. Chapman (3-3) then issued consecutive walks to Miguel Montero and Cody Ross. With the infield drawn in, Kubel singled over second base for his third career game-ending hit and first since May 22, 2010. "You hate to lose it like that," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Of late, weve lost quite a few of them like that. It seemed like Chapman was overthrowing some today." Brad Ziegler (4-1) replaced Heath Bell after Bruces second home run and earned the win. Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer for Arizona. Bell, who had converted nine straight saves, came on in the ninth to protect a 2-1 lead. But he walked Brandon Phillips leading off the inning and Bruce followed with his team-leading 18th homer. Bell, who has served as the Diamondbacks closer since J.J. Putz went on the disabled list May 8 with a strained right elbow, has allowed a home run in each of his last five appearances. Putz could return as early as this week. "We might have to put some thought into that," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "Hes done a pretty good job for us also. Today wasnt his day and I got him out of there pretty quick. I recognized it." Starting pitchers Mike Leake and Patrick Corbin dueled for eight innings before turning the game over to the bullpens. Leake retired the first 17 batters he faced and scattered four hits over eight innings with a walk and a strikeout for the Reds, who have lost three straight. "Its a tough one to swallow but we will be right back there tomorrow," Leake said. Corbin allowed one run and three hits over eight innings andd was handed his fourth straight no-decision in his quest to become the first Diamondbacks pitcher to win his first 10 decisions. Ashley Young Jersey. . "Obviously, Id love to get that 10th one and get it out of the way," Corbin said. "Fortunately, we came back and won the game." Bruce gave the Reds a 1-0 lead when he led off the second inning with a line drive to the balcony overhanging centre field, about 20 feet from where his ninth-inning shot landed. The 472-foot drive was the longest home run at Chase Field this season and the fourth-longest ever by an opponent. Bruce has homered in seven of his last nine games. "The big night offensively didnt really mean a whole lot," Bruce said. Corbin broke up Leakes nascent bid for a perfect game when he looped an opposite-field double into the left-field corner with two outs in the sixth. "It was a terrible swing," Corbin said. Two pitches later, Parra drove a cut fastball just over the fence into the pool area in right-centre for his second home run in two games to give Arizona a 2-1 lead. Corbin allowed Bruces first home run, a single by Devin Mesoraco in the seventh and Derrick Robinsons one-out triple to centre in the eighth. With Robinson representing the potential tying run, the 23-year-old lefty struck out Shin-Soo Choo and Votto to escape the jam and turn the game over to the bullpen. "I was coming inside early and he worked the count full like he always does," Corbin said. "Hes a tough batter to face. If hes going to beat me, I was going to throw it as hard as I could by him and if he got me, he got me." NOTES: Chapmans blown save was his first since May 19 at Philadelphia. ...

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. . -- After reaching the postseason for the first time since 2009, the Detroit Pistons had a bit more credibility during free agency.Thats Stan Van Gundys view, at least, after his team signed guard Ish Smith and forward Jon Leuer.I think that guys look at us probably a little differently -- you know, young team on the rise, said Van Gundy, Detroits coach and team president. I think both Jon and Ish liked the idea that they were sort of playing with guys in their own age group, and even younger.The Pistons introduced Smith and Leuer on Friday, and theyll be counting on both players to add depth to the roster. Detroits long-awaited return to the playoffs was short-lived when the Pistons were swept in the first round by Cleveland, but last season was still a significant step forward.Detroit came out of the draft last month still needing to acquire a backup to point guard Reggie Jackson. Thats certainly a role Smith can fill after averaging a career-high 12.6 points in 77 games with Philadelphia and New Orleans last season. Leuer gives the Pistons a versatile big man who shot 38 percent from 3-point range a season ago with Phoenix.Smith and Leuer are both 27.Last year, I thought we had a really good year, but we were really fortunate that we didnt have injuries that set us back or anything like that, Van Gundy said. I dont know that we would have had the depth to overcome that. I feel like now, really at every position now, I feel like weve got four guys we can play at each position, because weve also got very versatile guys.The Pistons have built around center Andre Drummond, whom they drafted in 2012. They traded for Jackson in 2015 and also have added starters Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris in trades. Detroit hasnt been much of a destination lately for top free agents, with the team in a rebuilding mode, but now Van Gundy can sell a brighter future.Smith, for example, is looking forward to tossing alley-oop passes in Drummonds direction.Dre better be ready to go get lobs from the first team and the second team, Smith said. Reggie does a great job of throwing them, Im most definitely going to throw them.The move to the Pistons might bring some stability to Smiths career. He has been in the NBA six seasons, and 2013-14 (with Phoenix) is the only one in which he played exclusively with one team. Detroit will be his 10th team. He joins Louis Amundson and Drew Gooden as the only active NBA players to play for 10 teams.The 6-foot-10 Leuer averaged a career-high 8.5 points last season and has the ability to help spread the opposing defense out as a forward or even a center.Thats kind of the way the leagues going, Leuer said. Small ball and versatility is becoming a unique and effective lineup, so thats something I was able to do last year a little bit, was come in at the five. ... Definitely something I feel comfortable doing.---Follow Noah Trister at . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe is confident Adam Taggarts calf issue wont drag on for much longer, but says hell play it safe with the star striker.Taggart hasnt played since scoring two goals in the season-opening draw with Central Coast.What initially was meant to be a one-week stint on the sidelines with calf soreness has now become a five-week layoff.Taggart, who has been dogged by injuries over the past two years, will miss Sundays clash with Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium.But Lowe is hopeful Taggart will be back in action within the next fortnight.I keep saying one week, and you lads look at me cross eyed every time I come in here thinking Im lying, Lowe said on Friday.Hes got a very minor issue with his calf. No tear. Just some fluid around the sheath.But its not responding. Weve stepped back a little bit and were going to strengthen it and step back and work through that.Hopefully hell be back in a week or two.Lowe will be making a return of his own this weekend.The popular coach wass forced to serve a two-week sideline ban for his heated exchange with referee Alan Milliner on October 21. Lowe took full responsibility for his actions, and said it had been hard to watch on from the bleachers.Its probably like you being a journalist and now allowing you to write anything, Lowe said.You want to do your job and you want to do it to the best of your ability, and you cant because youve been stupid. So you get what you deserve.Sydney FC have become this seasons early pacesetters after winning their opening five games.Such has been their dominance, the Sky Blues have only conceded one goal, while scoring 13 themselves.But Lowe is confident his team can cause an upset by snaring all three points, even without star defender Josh Risdon (Socceroos duties).I think its a game we can win, and we go there with a desire to do that, Lowe said.
