NEW YORK -- If the New York Mets are going to make a run toward respectability, they will need a few more performances from Carlos Torres and Ike Davis like the ones they gave Tuesday night. Scott Hartnell Jersey . Torres pitched six impressive innings as a fill-in starter and had an RBI single, Davis turned an angry crowd in his favour with a go-ahead double in a three-run sixth and the Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1. "Its a big boost," manager Terry Collins said of Torres efforts in his second start of the season. John Buck had a run-scoring single and Juan Lagares a sacrifice fly in a sixth inning that helped the Mets beat Atlantas Kris Medlen (6-10) for the first time in eight starts. Torres (1-1) gave up seven hits, including a home run to Andrelton Simmons on the second pitch of the game, and pitched out of trouble in the first four innings of his first outing in 10 days. The one run actually caused his ERA to increase to 0.94 in 28 2-3 innings this season -- 12 appearances. The 30-year-old right-hander made his first start for the Mets on July 13, when Matt Harvey was skipped ahead of the All-Star game. With Jonathon Niese on the disabled list because of a partial tear in his rotator cuff and Shaun Marcum out after having shoulder surgery -- he was placed on waivers earlier Tuesday -- Torres earned another start after working five innings of one-run ball against Pittsburgh. "We needed somebody to step up, and he stepped up for us," Collins said. Torres got his second win as a starter, the first since he was with the Chicago White Sox in September 2009. "Just as long as the team gets the win Im happy," Torres said. Bobby Parnell bounced back from wasting a 1-0, ninth-inning lead in a 2-1 loss Monday night to pitch a perfect ninth for his 19th save. Fourth place in the NL East, the Mets have won seven of 11 and improved to 44-52, only three-games back of second place Philadelphia. The Braves had ample opportunities to pad their lead in the early innings. But they went 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position over the first four innings and were 1 for 8 overall. In the first, Lagares threw out Jason Heyward at home by a large margin to end the first inning when he tried to score on Evan Gattis single to centre field. The NL East leaders fell to 2-3 on their seven-game trip. Medlen, who lost his third straight start, is used to the lack of support. Coming in, Atlanta had averaged 2.3 runs while he is in the game. While the Braves were squandering chances, the Mets took advantage of their first baserunners -- in the third. Lagares, the NL player of the week, doubled just inside the right field line and scored on Torres slapped single through a draw-in infield to tie it at 1. "To tell you the truth I was actually kind of upset," Torres said. "Not because I got the hit, I was happy about that. I jammed myself." New York went ahead for good in the sixth when Medlen appeared to lose his touch. "It was almost two different pitchers going the first five innings and then going out there in the sixth," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I dont know if it was just command or leaving balls out over the plate, but the swings got better in the sixth than in the first five innings." Daniel Murphy and David Wright singled leading off. After Charles Johnson lunged toward third base to snare Marlon Byrds grounder and then throw to second off one knee for the force, Davis lined a double off the base of the wall in right field to give New York the lead. "These are all confidence-building things," Collins said of Davis hit off a two-strike curveball. Relentlessly booed after bunting back to the mound and striking out in his first two at-bats, the slumping Davis was given a huge ovation as he stood on second base. "The crowd gets on me no matter what," Davis said. "Its fun for them." Batting just .176 coming in, Davis drove in a run for a second straight game after not notching an RBI since July 5, his first game back from the minor leagues. Buck followed with a single to centre for a 3-1 lead that chased Medlen. Lagares flyout to right field added another run. Medlen gave up four runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. He dropped to 4-1 in 18 outings against New York. "Ive been making more mistakes than I have been in the past," Medlen said. "Like I say, Im just trying to make the adjustments and fix it while I can." NOTES: The Braves are 25-29 on the road. ... Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia will start the opener of a doubleheader in Washington on Friday. The 23-year-old Mejia had Tommy John surgery in June 2011. He made five September appearances last year, but has been on the DL since the end of spring training with elbow inflammation. Collins said: "We wanted him to understand -- what hes hearing today about (Zack) Wheeler, (Matt) Harvey, was all about Jenrry Mejia three years ago in the same vain." ... Gonzalez was still gushing about Jason Heywards game-ending diving catch Monday night, saying it mightve been the best catch hes seen all season. ... It was "Star Wars" night at Citi Field. ... There was a sunshower before the game. Nashville Predators Jerseys . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said.

As part of a series looking at the mind, body and soul of an athlete, ESPNs Prim Siripipat will speak to various tennis players throughout Wimbledon.LONDON -- It took only 63 minutes for No. 3 seed and former Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska to outduel her first-round opponent, Ukrainian Kateryna Kozlova, 6-2, 6-1 on Wednesday. Although rain caused more than a dozen womens matches to be suspended on the outer courts, play on Wimbledons biggest stage continued thanks to a retractable roof that was installed in 2009.In front of 15,000 fans in a packed Centre Court, Kozlova looked tense in her Wimbledon debut. Radwanska, on the other hand, remained calm and focused as she moved Kozlova to all corners of the court with her usual variety of shots. The 27-year-old Polish star was prepared, despite the rain that pushed their match back a day.You know, I was mentally ready to go, Radwanska said after the match. Then, you know, rain. So its always tough, but its the same for both of us.However, when it comes to the later rounds of a Grand Slam, Radwanskas mental game is still questionable -- or, at least a work in progress. In 2012, she reached her first career Grand Slam finals but failed to walk away with her first Wimbledon title, losing to Serena Williams in three sets. Her success that year propelled her to No. 2 in the world, but since then, she has yet to win a major or reach another major final.Radwanska spoke with espnW.com about her approach to her mental game and how she handles the unrelenting pressure that comes with being a top star.espnW: Aga, this is your 11th Wimbledon appearance. Youve reached the finals here before. Do you get nervous at all for your first-round matches?Radwanska: First match is always tricky, but as you say, its so many years here so Im not really that nervous. I think when you play tournaments, its more emotion and adrenaline, so now Im pretty calm.espnW: Youve been on the tour for 10-plus years now. Is there a moment where you ever get nervous?Radwanska: Well, I remember those matches in the beginning that I was really, really nervous. I just couldnt even eat, because I was that nervous. I think experience makes a huge difference so now, its just a usual day and you just go on the court and play.espnW: Experience definitely helps. It also provides thatt confidence and belief in yourself, but do you have any regimen such as visualization or meditation to help keep you calm?Radwanska: Not really. Yannick Weber Jersey. . Im not really that kind of person to meditate. For me, its just really good to have a good warm-up and just go on court and figure out after a few games what you have to do to win matches. Trying to really stay calm and not really think about what I did wrong. [I just] think, next point.espnW: Youve reached the finals here at Wimbledon, but you have yet to win a major. Do you believe in yourself that you can walk away with a Grand Slam sometime soon?Radwanska: Well, I was close a couple times and even a couple times here [at Wimbledon]. I hope so. Of course, I believe that. I was there and I was playing the last match of the Grand Slam, so why not? I still have a couple more years to try and hopefully it will happen one day.espnW: From a mental perspective, what do you think that next step is in terms of giving you that little push to clinch that major?Radwanska: I think a couple things need to click to win a Grand Slam, to win those seven matches in a row. While every major is different, and every draw is different, you cant really compare one to another. I just focus on this one and well see.espnW: If you had some advice for young athletes out there, what would that be?Radwanska: I get that question so many times. Its never easy to explain what you have to do. ... Its trying to play the same tennis in the tiebreaker as you would in the first game. I think gaining experience and playing a lot of matches [is good] and experiencing a lot of losses. Thats always a good lesson. Even when you dont win the match, its still a good lesson for you so you can figure out what to do next time to win the match. I dont think theres any one tip because its really hard.Prim Siripipat joined ESPN as an anchor in 2011 after spending three years in Miami covering the Dolphins, Heat and Marlins.

HOUSTON -- After a frustrating first half that saw his team stymied by a resilient Denver defense, Wake Forest coach Bobby Muuss message to his team was to keep going. Custom Buffalo Sabres Jerseys .If were enjoying playing, well be victorious tonight, Muuss said.Following a dominant second half and overtime, Ian Harkes broke in the 102nd minute and Wake Forest beat Denver 2-1 in double overtime Friday to advance to the College Cup title game.Wake Forest (19-3-2) will face Stanford in the championship Sunday. Stanford beat North Carolina 10-9 on penalty kicks after the teams failed to score in regulation and two overtime periods.The Demon Deacons reached the championship game for the first time since winning the 2007 title.Harkes calmly slotted his low finish past goalkeeper Nick Gardner into the bottom corner to cap an impressive Demon Deacons counter attack. Wake Forest had plenty of opportunities to seal the victory prior to Harkes goal, outshooting Denver 14-2 in the second half and overtime.I didnt really expect it to be off the counter-attack, Harkes said.Wake Forests Jon Bakero opened the scoring in the seventh minute. Bakero took possession from Denver defender Graham Smith 30 yards from goal in the center of the field, turned to his right and delivered a curling effort past Gardner.Trailing for only the fourth time this season, the Pioneers (20-1-3) responded 10 minutes later. Graham Smith sent a lofted pass over the defense to forward Andre Shinyashiki, who pounced on a rebound to equalize after his first shot was saved by goalkeeper Alec Ferrell. It was Shinyashikis team-high ninth goal of the season.After halftime, Muuss credited his team for settling the game down and taking control.Theyre tight games, Muuss said. No one wants to make mistakes. I thought they did a really great job of staying compact.The Pioneers outshot Wake Forest 5-4 in the first half, 5-4, but the Demon Deacons settled the game down and took control from the start of the second half.I think there was a little bit of frustration today, Harkes said. We need to settle the game down. In the first half, it was a lot of back and forth.The Demon Deacons had the best chances in the second half. Bakero took a cross from the right wing and hit a shot off the crossbar, while Harkes had a shot in the final minute go straight at Gardner.The winner in the second overtime came off the counter-attack following a Denver corner kick. Bakero turned past a defender near midfield and started a 3-on-1 counter with Harkes to his right.There was just one defender there and I took a big touch, Bakero said. I tried to take him to the left to create space for Ian.The loss was Denvers first of the season and first since losing to SMU in the NCAA Tournament last season.Im really proud of my group, senior midfielder Sam Hamilton said. I think we took the program to a place its never been, which is not an easy thing to do. We built a belief for the program to feed off of.Muuss coached and recruited Denvers Jamie Franks to play for the Demon Deacons in 2005 as an assistant. Muuss then took his first head coaching job in Denver in 2007. Franks joined his former coachs staff and became the head coach of the Pioneers when Muuss moved to Wake Forest.We had a moment before the game underneath the tunnel that was special, Franks said.

Atletico eliminated Bayern from last seasons semifinals and again beat the German team at home in the group stage.We didnt give the ball away and we didnt allow them to have their dangerous counterattacks, Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti said.Lewandowski scored in the 28th minute after Yannick Carrrasco had needlessly given away a free kick. Jake McCabe Jersey. . Lewandowski took the shot and curled the ball over the wall and inside the post from 18 meters (yards) out for his fifth goal in this seasons competition.Ive been practicing free kicks consistently this season and I think I can do them pretty well by now, Lewandowski said.Earlier, Carrasco had forced Manuel Neuer into two good saves for Atleticos only real chances of the match.At the other end, Jan Oblak did well to turn away Douglas Costas shot from a tight angle.Arjen Robben had two calls for a penalty denied after the break, while Thiago Alcantara squandered Bayerns best chance of the match by sending the ball sky high from four meters (yards) out from a low cross from Juan Bernat.Ancelotti rested several key players, including Franck Ribery and Philipp Lahm.

ght shoulder) made a rehab star

Your early days were spent in Kandy. Carlos Baerga Jersey . I was born in Kandy. My father was a career public servant. Most of them end up in Colombo when they move on in their job. So did he. I moved to Colombo when I was about 12. I had my formative education at Trinity College, Kandy, and then completed my education in Colombo at the Royal College.What brought you to cricket? I grew up in a household where there was always a ball around. So if it was not cricket, it would have been rugby, tennis or table tennis.What was cricket in the 1970s like in Sri Lanka? Cricket in the 1970s was still very amateurish. We always had the advantage of having a very good school system. We didnt have a first-class structure, but things started to change from the late 1970s and early-1980s.What is your memory from your first World Cup, in 1979? We had to qualify as an Associate member to get into the main draw. We were at a distinct disadvantage because we had to give a walkover to Israel. I think one game was also washed off. We had to win every game from that point. It was early May and the conditions were not conducive. For me, as a schoolboy, playing for the national side was a real experience as we were playing on pitches that were so very different to what I was used to. It was very cold too [in England]. It was a sheer team effort that got us through to win the ICC Trophy, which got us into the main draw.What was life like as an international cricketer touring abroad? It was a quantum leap in terms of cricketing experience, but it was also learning about life and people. We were trained to study and work. Suddenly we were thrown in a work environment which was sport. We were up against absolute professionals. So that adjustment was quite tough. We had a balanced life, we didnt have too much pressure. We looked to perform in the best way we could without having great expectations. We always had that bedrock of stability if things didnt fall right.Do you remember the days leading up to Sri Lankas inaugural Test match? It was an absolute blur. We played practice games and three-day games against England, and then the next thing you do is play Test cricket. It may sound hilarious now but the first Test match I ever saw was the first Test match I played in. We didnt have TV or live coverage, so it was all [radio] commentary in the good old days. This was our background - very different from what the modern Sri Lankan cricketer would really see. I remember the board president of that time, Mr Gamini Dissanayake, a man of great vision, told us that our role was to ensure that we set a good foundation for the next generation of cricketers. He put simple objectives in place so that we never got too ahead of ourselves.Is there one thing that you remember about that Test? I will always remember the quality of bowling in that Test match. You had Bob Willis, Ian Botham, Paul Allott, John Emburey and Derek Underwood. It was relentless pressure. You could always get a loose ball every over in club cricket, but at this level you would be lucky to get one in three overs. It is the first memory I have.What is the biggest highlight of your playing career?Our first Test win was the highlight that supersedes everything. I think we took 13 Tests to win our first Test match, which was against IndiaWhat was it like being the captain of Sri Lanka? It is anyones dream to play for the country, let alone captain. I was quite honoured, but I was caught in the transition phase and captained two Tests in two years. I was gainfully employed at that time, so it was easy to switch off from cricket at the age of 29 and focus on a corporate life.You were playing the best fast bowlers in the world and then you moved to a desk job. Was that transition jarring? I had always worked from the age of 20. We were semi-professionals, so you had to have a job. So this was not too much of a challenge, but I missed the intensity of competition the most. I could work till 6pm and still have lots of energy left. I realised that it was the intensity. I used to work on rest days during Test matches in the good old days. It was simply to take my mind off and to look at the game differently.What do you remember about Arjuna Ranatunga and Aravinda de Silva in the early days? I know both of them very well. Arjuna is a good friend. We played the first Test together. He is a great personality and Sri Lanka cricket owes a lot to him for bringing that sense of steeliness and self-belief.I have never met anyone as talented as Aravinda at the age of 15. We played for the same club. He used to make batting so simple. It was a delight to share dressing rooms as team-mates. We still maintain that friendship because I believe it is important to take memories of people as human beings rather than the cut shots or cover drives that they played.In 1993 you became a match referee. What prompted you to take the job? It wasnt anything I wanted to do. I was still working. I got a call from the cricket board about nominations as referees. The ICC used to just pick randomly from the boards nominations. I thought I had the cricketing experience and a corporate background. I found it interesting. I scheduled my annual leave after the ICC found a slot for me in 1993, in Pakistan. It was something that they were trying. I was just in the right place.What were the early days like? We were just pioneering a concept, so people didnt know who a referee was. The idea was to establish the concept. I remember in one Test match they didnt have a room for the referee. When I said we need a room for the referee and the third umpire, they said, For what? In the first days of that Test match, I operated from the stairway of the ground with the third umpire. Life has moved on so much from there.How much has it changed? It is unrecognisable. The referee, along with the four umpires, are called the playing control team. In effect, the third team in any international match. It is an accepted, integral part of any international match.Ahead of major games, like an Ashes Test or an India-Pakistan game, do you feel the nerves? I have butterflies ahead of any game. I prepare for every match as if it is my first match. Lots of things could go to chance. It may not be the right decision, but it shouldnt be because of lack of preparation. This has really been my work ethic.How did becoming the chief match referee in 2001 change your role? The basic role of the chief match referee is to head the group of match referees. I am also an international umpires selector and a member of the ICCs cricket committee. My core role remains as referee.Does your personality come through when faced with a volatile situation - like the crowd trouble in Karachi in 1997 or the forfeit at The Oval in 2006? This is why I say: preparation is key. You cover all bases. Your job is to ensure that the game goes on, so what measures you take are actually veered towards that end objective. But there are some things management manuals dont tell you how to do, and thats where trust with players and officials comes in. If they feel that you are doing it for the best interests of the game, they are more likely to listen to you. As opposed to you trying to force it down. There are occasions where you need to have a different way of doing it. Your personality does come through then. But I think whats most important is to be flexible but to do what is in the best interest of the game.What is a typical day like for a match referee ahead of and during a game? It starts a couple of days [before the match] - in fact, many more. You get background information and get into the logistics of what we need to do. Brushing up on the laws and the playing conditions and meeting with your group. Also making sure I do my job, which is to run the game according to the laws, the playing conditions and with the spirit it is intended to be played.Do we think we are ready to go back to home umpires? The consensus among international umpires is that they are comfortable as it is now. The primary concept of bias has been taken off.MCG or Lords - your preference? Both are great in their own sense. I think certain grounds have unique values and traditions. Some may appeal to you for history, or they are scenic. Some may be just lucky for you. I like Cape Town, Sydney and Kolkata as well.How about in Sri Lanka? Although it is my rival club, I like the SSC. It was a good ground and the conditions favoured the batsmen. You could always visit, score runs and come back.Is there a law you think many players are not aware of? I dont think the players know much of the 42 laws, which was the case with me when I was a player. Everyone expects people to know Law 43 - which is common sense. Thats also missing sometimes.What do you unwind after a game? Any ice baths for match officials? I think sometimes you need to put your head in an ice bath. It gets cluttered so much. But we tend to unwind differently.Which day would you say was your most challenging as a match referee? To course-correct something that is not right and put it back on the right track. It could be from security to player management to lifting the umpires morale. Even getting your own game in order, thats what is challenging.Any game in particular that tested you a great deal?Karachi [1997] really tested me because I was between the devil and the deep blue sea due to a crowd disturbance. The spectators got really agitated over some issues. I could see myself on a flight to Colombo with the stadium on fire. It was that bad.What did you do to fix the situation? Just the fact that Sachin [Tendulkar] and some of the Indian players trusted my judgement to stay on the field and resolve the issues with the security personnel.Do you know how many matches youve officiated in? An umpire asked me yesterday and I told him that the only number I know is No. 5, which is my cap number for Sri Lanka.I think it is more than 500 internationals, and thats what most people dont realise. It has been a lot.Does the job tire you? Travel is tiring. When I do my job as a referee, I never look at it from the eye of a referee. I watch the match as a player, which is what I am primarily. When you do that, you see the technical side, the plots and the subplots. While doing so, you might see something that you need to do as a referee. But if I look at it the other way, I miss all the great activity that is taking place. This is what I tell young referees to do always. Do you have to be focused on every ball of a match? Most of the time. I can see the replay, but I try to watch every ball.Do you think cricket should have more technology? I dont think we will go backwards from here. Technology is improving by the day. If at all, we will move forward. Lots of other sports have followed cricket. There are so many variables in cricket that there will always be debate. Technology has advanced so much. Decisions that were not out ten years ago are out now.Is there any training that you undergo to spot what could be a corrupt practice on the field? We are trained by the anti-corruption unit about the dos and donts. They are the experts at the ground. If they have anything to do with the technical side, they get in touch with us. So we are trained but we may not have the clinical eye for it. Between them and us and a few others, we can put the jigsaw together.What would you like to your legacy to be? I look at it in the form of having done my job to the best of my ability. In that process if I have left the game better, I will sleep well. I will always look at it as an absolute privilege to be part of a great game, first as a spectator, secondly as a player, for five years as a national selector, then for a short period as a commentator, and quite a bit as a referee. I think I have been lucky to see the game evolve from the 1970s till now. In the process, I have made friends on and off the field, which I value and treasure. Roberto Perez Jersey . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour.

The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. MIAMI -- Chris Johnson took advantage of the Padres outfielders playing shallow.Johnsons run-scoring ground-rule double with two outs in the bottom of the ninth gave the Miami Marlins a 7-6 win over San Diego on Friday night.When I hit it I put my head down, I didnt get it all of it and when I was running I kind of saw where they were playing -- a little bit more shallow, obviously to try to throw somebody out at the plate, Johnson said. I was just hoping it would carry enough to get over his head. (Center fielder Travis Jankowski) almost got there. Im just glad he didnt.Miami scored three runs in the eighth to tie it before Johnson gave the Marlins their third walk-off win of the season.Its huge for us but also for him and his confidence, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. Hes not getting his at-bats and hes been great about it. No pouting or sulking hes just continuing to do the work and I felt good for him and for how hard he works and how hard he wants it.Johnson hit a deep fly ball to right-center field that took one bounce before landing in the Marlins bullpen. Jankowski was playing shallow and converged on the ball, but was unable to make the catch.You kind of pick your poison, you give a guy a double more than you give a guy a single to win the baseball game at that point in time, Padres manager Andy Green said. You can be back on the warning track and try to defend that, but theres not everything you can defend in that outfield -- its a huge outfield. Were playing shallow oppo with two strikes and he put a good swing on it and had a pitch he can handle and drove it to the warning track. It was a long run for Jankowski, but he almost got it.Martin Prado, Christian Yelich, and Marcell Ozuna each drove in two runs for the Marlins.We had been swinging the bats lately, but not a bunch of runs so to come back from a deficit and get a win at home is huge for us, Johnson said.Luis Sardinas homered and drove in four runs and Ryan Schimpf also homered for the Padres.Fernando Rodney (2-3) pitched an inning in relief to pick up the win.Brandon Maurer (0-4) blew the save in the eighth and lost it in the ninth, allowing four hits and one run in one inning.San Diego starter Jarred Cosart allowed two runs and five hits over five innings in his first appearance against his former club where he spent parts of the last three seasons. He was traded to San Diego in a seven-player deall involving pitcher Andrew Cashner on July 29. Corey Kluber Jersey. Cosart exited with a 5-2 lead after a blister on his middle finger on his throwing hand emerged.Its frustrating to get through five with only about 80 pitches and probably have a chance to go two, if not more, and not have to use so much of the bullpen the first game of the series, but its kind of how it worked out, Cosart said.Miami starter David Phelps allowed four runs and two hits with three walks in 3 2/3 inningsSardinas, who was 1 for 8 coming in, had a three-run double and a home run -- his third in 115 career games.Ozunas RBI double and Yelichs RBI groundout gave the Marlins a 2-0 lead.The Padres took the lead with a four-run fourth keyed by Sardinas bases-clearing double as nine men went to the plate.Two outs there I was just trying to be aggressive in the zone I think was the biggest thing, Sardinas said through a translator. Trying to look for a good pitch and make good solid contact. It was a big point in the game at that point.An error by Phelps covering first base on a grounder gave the Padres a 4-2 lead and ended his night.Schimpfs home run, his 15th, into the upper deck in right field pushed the lead to 5-2. His 15 home runs are tied for the fifth-most by a Padres rookie.Sardinas made it 6-2 with a solo homer in the fifth.The Marlins pulled within three on Ozunas RBI single in the seventh.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: RHP Tyson Ross (right shoulder) made a rehab start with Class-A Lake Elsinore on Thursday allowing four runs in 2/3 of an inning. When we look at Tyson the only thing that really matters is health, manager Andy Green said. I dont really read too much into rehab starts. . I think hes going to throw another start in the minor leagues before he pitches for us. ... LHP Christian Friedrich will be skipped in the rotation to give him rest. ... CF Jon Jay (forearm) took swings inside the batting cage on Friday and is eyeing an early September return.UP NEXTPadres: LHP Clayton Richard (0-3, 4.44) will start Saturdays game. Richard is 0-2 with a 1.64 ERA in two starts this season.Marlins: RHP Jose Urena (2-4, 6.33) will make his sixth start of the season. Urena picked up his first victory as a starter this season in his last start at Pittsburgh allowing two runs in six innings.

TORONTO -- Toronto FC has parted ways with captain Darren ODea in another move to clear space under Major League Soccers salary cap. White Blue Jackets Jerseys . The club was without ODea for Saturdays 3-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City as the team finalized the defenders transfer to a team in Ukraine. After the game, manager Ryan Nelsen explained that shedding ODeas hefty contract -- in the $450,000 range -- would free up TFCs options. "Darren has moved on. He got a contract from Ukraine that he couldnt turn down," Nelsen said in a interview on the teams website. "Darrens the most expensive player in the whole of the league, in terms of salary cap. It frees up some space for us. He wanted to go, it was a good opportunity for him. "Unfortunately for Darren its not his fault. His contract was pretty ridiculous, in terms of MLS contracts." The 26-year-old Ireland international had a lucrative offer from Ukraine prior to joining Toronto last season. The move comes days after Toronto traded midfielder Luis Silva to D.C. United for allocation money that can go toward cap relief. On Friday, defender Danny Califf announced his retirement. The transfer also opens up an international spot, which is the second one acquired this month following a trade with Chivas USA. ODea has one goal and one assist through 17 games with TFC this season. He last played for Toronto on July 3, a 3-3 draw with the Montreal Impact at BMO Field, where he scored his only goal of 2013. ODea began his career with Celtic in the Scottish Premier League in 2006 and has represented Ireland at the under-21 and senior level. Fellow defender Steven Caldwell wore the captains armband for TFC in Saturdays loss in Kansas City. Cam Atkinson Jersey . But what about the officials?

SPIELBERG, Austria -- Sergio Perez escaped unharmed after a brake failure on his Force India caused him to crash heavily on the penultimate lap of the Austrian Grand Prix.Perez suffered the failure on the entrance to Turn 3, skidding across the gravel before he hit the barriers head on. He was running eighth when the accident happened with just one and a half laps until the chequered flag.Its a big shame that we retired on the penultimate lap of the race, Perez said. Im feeling sad for the team because we really deserved some points. Yesterday and today we have been really unlucky, and its frustrating because weve been competitive here with our pace. The race was going reeally well and I thought we had the points in our pocket. Pierre-Luc Dubois Jersey. .Perez was hoping to snatch seventh in the knowledge Romain Grosjean had been caught speeding in the pit lane.I was pushing hard to stay close to Grosjean because I knew he had a five seconds time penalty. Then, on the final lap, going into turn three, I had no brakes and went straight on. I touched the barrier and damaged the front of the car, but Im perfectly OK. Its annoying because the team did everything right today and its just bad luck which stopped our great recovery.
