MILWAUKEE —Having hit for the cycle less than two weeks ago, Aaron Hill had a
plan for when he came up with a shot at a second one. Reggie Wayne Jersey . Well, as much as one
can plan for the rare batting feat. “You cant think about it,” he said. “You
look for a ball up and hope things work out.” It did. Hill hit for the cycle for
the second time in 12 days and Ian Kennedy pitched seven strong innings, leading
the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 9-3 victory over the Brewers on Friday night. Hill
also singled, doubled, tripled and homered on June 18 against Seattle. Brooklyns
Babe Herman is the only other major leaguer to hit for two cycles in one season
since 1900, according to STATS LLC. He accomplished the feat in 1931. “A cycle
is one of those crazy things and to do it twice in (12) days—thats crazy,”
Brewers starter Randy Wolf said. Hill doubled for his 1,000th hit in the first,
singled in the third and hit his 11th home run of the season, a two-run shot in
the fourth. All those hits came off Wolf (2-6). Hill tripled in the sixth inning
off Livan Hernandez. His headfirst slide into third easily beat the relay throw
from the outfield. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke wasnt surprised by Hills hitting
prowess. “He can really hit,” Roenicke said. “This is a really good hitter. We
made some bad pitches.” Brewers catcher George Kottaras appreciated the pressure
Hill was under. Last season, Kottaras became the seventh player in franchise
history to hit for the cycle, “Hes swinging really well,” Kottaras said. “I know
its tough to do it once.” Hill seemed a bit dumbfounded by, but still happy with
his good fortune. “Its great,” the Diamondbacks second baseman said. “Obviously,
its great to get the win, too. It wouldnt have been as enjoyable if we came away
with a loss. It was just a fun game.” Paul Goldschmidt came close to hitting for
the cycle, too. He doubled, homered, singled and walked before a fan interfered
with his hard grounder down the left field line in the ninth. Goldschmidt most
likely would not have made third even without the spectators glove deflecting
the ball. Kennedy (6-7) allowed a run in the first, but then kept Milwaukee off
the board until the sixth when he created his own jam that led to two unearned
runs. Rickie Weeks tapped back to the mound and Kennedys wide throw pulled the
first baseman off the bag for an error. After he walked Kottaras, Cesar Izturis
doubled off the wall in deep right-centre. Kennedy gave up six hits, walked one
and struck out seven, including five in a row as he rebounded from his previous
start at home against the Chicago Cubs. He went a season low-tying 4 1-3 innings
Saturday, allowing five runs and 10 hits. He was also much better this time
against the Brewers who beat him 7-1 on May 25 when he allowed four runs on
seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. It was his first start at Miller Park since
pitching six innings in the decisive Game 5 of the NL division series on Oct. 7.
Nyjer Morgans RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning off J.J. Putz gave
Milwaukee a 3-2 victory and the Brewers playoff series win in 29 years. Wolf
allowed five runs on five hits in the third. He failed to retire any of the
first five batters and that collapse cost him a chance at his first victory
since April 30, a span of 11 starts. After the first two hitters reached on
hits, Justin Upton and Jason Kubel followed with run-scoring singles.
Goldschmidt then cleared the bases with his 11th homer of the season. Hills
two-run homer in the fourth came after Willie Bloomquist reached on second
baseman Weeks throwing error. Wolf went a season-low tying four innings. He was
charged with seven earned runs on nine hits and struck out six. Aramis Ramirezs
run-scoring groundout gave Wolf a brief 1-0 lead in the first, but after that it
was all Diamondbacks. NOTES: Brewers RHP Shaun Marcum probably wont pitch until
after the All-Star game. During a pre-game throwing session, he continued to
experience right elbow tightness. The right-hander (5-3, 3.39 ERA) last pitched
on June 14 and has missed two starts since. ... Arizona has won two consecutive
games away from home after snapping a season-high four-game road skid with
Thursdays 3-2 victory over Atlanta. ... Hill became the sixth Diamondback to hit
for the cycle. Andrew Luck Shirts . The team was drained
after criss-crossing the country for speaking engagements and events in the year
after winning gold at the Vancouver Games. Donnie Avery Womens Jersey . Lobendahn spent
four seasons with the Blue Bombers but missed the majority of last season with a
torn ACL. Over his four-year stint in Winnipeg, he registered 180 tackles, seven
sacks, and one interception. http://www.coltsteamstore.com/pat-angerer-jerseys
. Ricky Ray threw two touchdowns and Chad Kackert piled up 195 yards of offence
as the Argonauts defeated the Calgary Stampeders 35-22 in front of 53,208 fans
at home in Toronto. Andrew Luck Blue Jersey . But Jay Haas was
brilliant for three rounds instead of one, proving yet again that nobody can
dominate the Glen Oaks Country Club like he can. Coby Fleener Youth Jersey . The
six-foot-three 216-pound Elliott was scheduled to become a free agent Feb. 16.
“Joey is an athletic quarterback with great potential in this league,” Bombers
general manager Joe Mack said in a statement.Melissa Tancredi scored once in
each half to earn Canada a come from behind 2-2 tie with Sweden. The draw is
enough to move Canada into the quarter-finals. Canada fell behind after two
first-half Swedish goals. In the 84th minute, Canadian forward Christine
Sinclair bent a beautiful cross into the box that both Tancredi and substitute
Kaylyn Kyle made runs on towards the Swedish goal. Tancredi ended up getting the
final touch on the ball to pull Canada even in the contest. In the 43rd minute,
as the first half was getting set to expire, Tancredi fired home her first goal
of the game to shave Swedens lead in half. Sinclair and defender Rhian Wilkinson
combined on a nice passing play before the latter shaped a cross that Tancredi
slammed into the net. “It showed the spirit in this team,” said Tancredi after
the draw. “This team just never gives up, its our Olympic spirit. We gave them a
2-0 lead, but we knew we could do it and had the time.” “It was a relief for
sure, but give us another five minutes and we would have got the result,” said
Tancredi about scoring the equalizer. “Im proud of the girls,  I saw Christine
(Sinclair) making me eye contact and I knew she was going to chip it in for me
so I put my body on the line and dived to put my head on it.” Canada opened the
game with an impressive offensive push that resulted in multiple chances at
opening the scoring though they were not able to crack the scoresheet. Pat Angerer Womens Jersey. nbsp; In the sixth
minute, Tancredi was able to break in on Swedish keeper Hedvig Lindahl but was
not able to cash at the end of the play. Five minutes later with the keeper off
her line, Jonelle Foligno chipped the ball towards the empty net but Swedish
defender Lina Nilsson cleared the ball before it crossed the line. In the 12th
minute Lauren Sesselmann, who has been one of Canadas stand out defenders so far
at London 2012, missed converting a set piece into an opening goal. After
turning away all three of those quality Canadian scoring chances, Sweden jumped
into the lead through a 14th minute goal from Marie Hammarstrom. As the Canadian
defence was trying to get set in the box, the Swedish midfielder got on the end
of a cross and fired the ball past keeper Erin McLeod who was helpless on the
play. Just two minutes later Swedish striker Sofia Jakobsson slid the ball home
on the back post to double Swedens advantage.  Canadas defence was able to hold
the attack from that point, not conceeding another goal. “We started well and we
had a 2-0 lead, but they came back,” said Jakobsson.  ”Canada played well to
come back. We kept fighting, so were happy.” By virtue of South Africas draw
with Japan, Sweden will finish first in Group F while Canada will claim the
third spot and one of the final two advancement places into the quarter-finals.
