NEW YORK —Playing terrific defence and catching lines with his shots all night
long, defending US Open champion Novak Djokovic beat 2009 champion Juan Martin
del Potro 6-2, 7-6 (3), 6-4 on Thursday to reach the semifinals at a 10th
consecutive Grand Slam tournament. Pat Angerer Jersey . The showcase matchup was
compelling throughout, and closer than the scoreline indicated. The thrilling
second set lasted 84 minutes—11 more than Djokovics entire first-round
victory last week. The second-seeded Serb will face fourth-seeded David Ferrer
of Spain on Saturday. Ferrer advanced to his fourth career major semifinal by
using his high-energy brand of leg-churning, ball-chasing tennis to outlast
eighth-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia 6-3, 6-7 (5), 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4) in 4
hours, 31 minutes. Robert Mathis Jersey . Even he hasnt seen
anything like what the Braves did Friday night. Atlanta was down 9-0 after five
innings with Washington Nationals star pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the mound.
Dwight Freeney Jersey . —All-American
cornerback Cliff Harris has been dismissed from the Oregon Ducks for violating
team rules. http://www.nikeindianapoliscoltsproshop.com/andrew-luck-jersey
. —Juvenile champion Hansen will not run in the Preakness on Saturday. Reggie Wayne Jersey . A six-year NFL veteran,
Francisco has played in 75 games with 23 starts. He has 131 tackles and four
interceptions during his career with Arizona (2005-08) and Indianapolis
(2009-10). Andrew Luck Jersey . —The Trail Blazers say
forward LaMarcus Aldridge had surgery on his right hip.BALTIMORE—
Brandon Snyder and the Texas Rangers put on an offensive show against the
Baltimore Orioles, who looked very much like their former selves in this matchup
of first-place teams. Snyder homered and had a career-high six RBIs against his
former team, and the Rangers beat Baltimore 14-3 Monday night to end the Orioles
five-game winning streak. Snyder, the Orioles top draft choice in 2005, hit a
two-run single in the second inning, a three-run drive in the sixth and an RBI
single during a seven-run ninth. He played in only 16 games with Baltimore
before the Rangers got him for cash considerations in January. “Im probably
going to have to wake up tomorrow and read something to make sure it happened,”
Snyder said. “Its a special night, being back in Baltimore, but the biggest
thing is having my family there.” Snyder went to high school in Northern
Virginia and said more than a dozen friends and family were in attendance.
Playing well for his team was his motivation as opposed to gaining a measure of
revenge against the Orioles. “Its something that kind of bugged me in the past,
but they were also the team to give me my opportunity to come here,” Snyder
said. Prior to this start, he had one RBI in 11 games with the Rangers, on a
solo homer against Toronto on Wednesday. “He had a good night tonight and Im
happy for him. Im also happy for my team,” manager Ron Washington said. The
Rangers had lost five of their previous seven games, in part due to a lack of
timely hitting. Snyder got it started with his two-out RBI single, and the rest
of the team followed his lead. “He got us a big two-out RBI hit. We certainly
needed that,” Washington said. “Then he gave us a three-run bomb that gave us a
cushion, and then he drove in another one. He gave us what we needed.” Texas
starter Matt Harrison (4-2) gave up three runs, six hits and a walk in seven
innings. The left-hander yielded 15 runs and 22 hits in his previous two
appearances, so pitching against the Orioles couldnt have come at a better time
—hes now 4-0 lifetime against Baltimore, with all of the wins coming at Camden
Yards. Michael Young homered and drove in three runs and Josh Hamilton hit his
10th home run for the Rangers, who got 19 hits in their sixth straight win over
Baltimore. Following 14 straight losing seassons, the surprising Orioles entered
with the best record in the majors after a 5-1 trip through Yankee Stadium and
Fenway Park, but on this night they were no match for the two-time defending AL
champions.dddddddddddd Starter Brian Matusz (1-4) yielded seven runs and 10 hits
in five-plus innings, leaving Baltimore in a 7-0 hole in the sixth. It was the
most runs allowed by the Orioles since a 17-3 loss to the Yankees last July.
Asked if the defeat could have a long-term effect, manager Buck Showalter said,
“Thats not something our guys or Im going to dwell on. Its part of what we do
for a living. You get thrown some self-inflicted things that you have to deal
with and nobodys going to feel sorry for you. Hopefully get a good nights rest
and turn the page.” Robert Andino and Wilson Betemit homered for Baltimore, and
J.J. Hardy had three hits, giving him eight over two games. But it wasnt nearly
enough to prevent the Orioles from absorbing their most lopsided loss of the
year. “I think we will be able to get past it,” Hardy said. The Rangers went up
2-0 in the second inning when Adrian Beltre walked, Nelson Cruz doubled and
Snyder lined a two-out single to centre. Young hit a sacrifice fly in the third
for a 3-0 lead. In the sixth, Mike Napoli singled in a run before Snyder chased
Matusz with a shot to centre. Matusz broke a 12-game losing streak in his
previous start against the Yankees, but this 103-pitch outing raised his ERA to
an unsightly 5.91. “Any rough outing is disappointing, especially with the
momentum we had,” Matusz said. “I just didnt keep the team in the ballgame
today.” Andino homered in the bottom half to make it 7-1, and Betemit hit a
two-run drive in the seventh. Young and Hamilton both connected with a man on
against Jason Berken in the ninth. NOTES: The Orioles added RHPs Berken and Stu
Pomeranz from Triple-A Norfolk, while demoting Sundays starter, RHP
Tommy Hunter, and C Ronny Paulino. Pomeranz made his major league debut,
allowing three hits in three scoreless innings. ... Beltre, who missed the
previous five games with a left hamstring injury, returned as the Texas DH. He
moved gingerly on the bases. ... On Tuesday, the Rangers will start RHP
Neftali Feliz (1-1, 3.81 ERA) against Baltimores Jake Arrieta (2-2, 3.52). ’ ’ ’
