OTTAWA —A knee injury has ended Peng Peng Lees London Olympics dream. Justin Tuck Womens Jersey . The gymnast from
Toronto suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee just over a
week ago while training in Regina before the Canadian championships, forcing her
out of the final Olympic selection event later this month. “I have spent a great
deal of time consulting with doctors and did a lot of soul searching to
determine what was best for me,” said Lee, who played a key role in helping
Canada qualify a five-woman team for the Games. “I do not want to rush into
doing gymnastics for the Olympics if my knee could be at a greater risk and
possibly affect me in the future.” Lee plans to attend UCLA on a gymnastics
scholarship in the fall. Lee will still travel to London as the womens teams
honorary captain. “Peng Peng brings to the team much more than her performances
on the floor,” said Lise Simard, program director for the womens team. “She is a
respected leader on our team and our athletes will continue to benefit from her
winning attitude, dynamic personality and crowd appeal.” The final Olympic
selection camp and competition will be held in Gatineau, Que., June 24-28.
Twelve gymnasts are vying for five spots on the Olympic team plus one reserve.
They are: Elisabeth Black of Halifax, Ottawas Talia Chiarelli, Jessica Dowling
and Jessica Savona of Oakville, Ont., Madeline Gardiner, Victoria Moors and
Mikaela Gerber of Cambridge, Ont., Dominique Pegg of Sarnia, Ont., Brittany
Rogers of Coquitlam, B.C., Briannah Tsang of Vancouver, Anysia Unick of Calgary
and Kristina Vaculik of Whitby, Ont. Chase Blackburn Womens Jersey . The future

. “The championship goes through Detroit,” Acta said. “They beat us up pretty
good last year, the whole division, and theyre a very good ballclub. Phil Simms Jersey . The biggest winner of
Super Bowl week so far may be retired NFLer and former Giant David Tyree, whose
against-the-helmet catch during the Giants game-winning drive at Super Bowl XLII
will be on constant loop this week. Eli Manning Youth Jersey . —Two late-season
wins helped take a bit of the sting of the Toronto Argonauts ugly season from
defensive end Ricky Foley.CLEVELAND—Now that the Minnesota Twins are winning,
they hope they havent lost Joe Mauer for long. The former AL MVP and three-time
batting champion sprained his right thumb and left the Twins 5-3 win over the
Cleveland Indians on Sunday, Minnesotas fifth victory in six games following a
five-game losing streak. “Hopefully Ill be back in there soon,” said Mauer, who
singled home Minnesotas first run and later walked and scored. “They (trainers)
assured me Im day-to-day.” The four-time All-Star played only 82 games a year
ago because of a leg injury, but has missed only one game this year. Mauer got
hurt while striking out in the seventh inning and was lifted for a pinch hitter
in the ninth. “I fouled a pitch back and felt it,” said Mauer, hitting .298 in
52 games. “It was barking pretty good, so I got some ice on it.” Scott Diamond
(4-1) cooled off Cleveland bats, allowing three unearned runs and seven hits
without a walk over seven innings. In six starts since being recalled from the
minors May 8, he has walked only four. Matt Capps pitched the ninth for his 12th
save in 13 chances as Minnesota, last in the AL Central, took two of three in
the series. Josh Willingham had two RBIs and Alexi Casilla hit two sacrifice
flies for the Twins, who got five infield hits, including three bunt singles.
Minnesota won despite making three errors. “We manufactured some runs, but
missed the ball a few times and let them back in the game,” Minnesota manager
Ron Gardenhire said. “Every time they got close, we were able to score and get
that lead back.” Cleveland fell to 2-7 since sweeping three straight at home
from Detroit. They dropped to 4-12 overall against lefty starters this year.
“Not a good homestand, especially when you win the first game of both series and
youre not able to win another ballgame,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “We
continue to struggle as a team.” The Indians begin a nine-game trip Tuesday in
Detroit and play 18 of their next 24 games on the road. “June is going to be a
challenge for us,” Acta said. “Were going to have to kick it up a notch.” Thats
particularly true of the starting rotation. Justin Masterson (2-5) gave up three
runs and seven hits over six innings in one of the better outings by a Cleveland
starter of late. In their previous eight games, Indians startters went 2-6 with
a 9. Chase Blackburn Jersey. 52 ERA. That included
a poor outing by Masterson on Tuesday when he gave up nine hits and all the runs
in six innings of an 8-2 loss to Kansas City. Gardenhire said strong starts of
late have helped the Twins. “It all starts with starting pitching,” Gardenhire
said. “Diamond did the job. He threw strikes, got ahead in the count and kept
attacking the hitters.” Diamond said he felt comfortable changing speeds and
tried to throw strikes on either side of the plate. “Id rather attack them and
give up a hit than walk guys,” he said. “I give up a hit, I can get my ground
ball and get out of it.” Diamond struck out two and got 13 outs on grounders.
With the Twins leading 2-0, the teams exchanged sacrifice flies in the fourth.
Casilla gave the Twins a 3-0 lead in the top half, then Jose Lopez countered for
Cleveland. Shelley Duncans RBI single later in the inning got the Indians within
3-2. Twins shortstop Brian Doziers second error of the game fueled the rally.
Willingham and Ryan Doumit singled home runs off reliever Nick Hagadone in the
seventh. Ben Revere reached on a bunt and stole second. After replacing his
belt, broken on the slide into the bag, Revere scored easily on Willinghams
single. “I think we can have three or four guys bunt in a row,” Gardenhire said.
“That makes it entertaining for the manager, who can just sit and watch them run
around for a while.” NOTES: Twins LHP Glen Perkins worked a scoreless eighth.

innings this year. ... Gardenhire is awaiting tests on RHP Carl Pavanos sore
