SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres needed every bit of a six-run lead they built against the Atlanta Braves thanks in large part to home runs by Logan Forsythe and Will Venable. NFL Jerseys 2017 . Forsythe homered in his first at-bat of the season, Venable added a three-run homer and Jason Marquis won his seventh straight decision to lead the Padres to a 7-6 victory against the Braves on Monday night. Marquis took a 7-1 lead into the eighth, when he allowed Jason Heywards solo shot to right-centre with one out and then walked Freddie Freeman with two outs before making way for Tommy Layne. "Two runs through eight, Ill take that tomorrow," manager Bud Black said. "The ninth inning got away from us a little bit, but we had a big enough cushion. The end result is what you look for." Braves rookie Evan Gattis had a pinch-hit, three-run homer with one out in the ninth off Tim Stauffer to pull the Braves to 7-5. Dan Uggla and Chris Johnson were aboard on singles for Gattis 14th homer overall and his fourth pinch-hit shot. He leads all major league rookies with 14 homers and 37 RBIs. Heyward homered to straightaway centre field with two outs in the ninth, his second solo shot of the game and fifth of the season. It came off Dale Thayer, who got the final two outs for his first save in three chances. Marquis (8-2) held Atlanta to two runs and five hits, walked five and struck out four. "He pitched well. He weaves his way through a game. Its great," Black said. Marquis has won seven straight decisions over nine starts, the second-longest streak of his career. His last loss was on April 22 to Milwaukee. "I just tried to carry over what I did in L.A. and try to be real consistent in my delivery and focus down in the zone with my sinker," said Marquis, who beat the Dodgers 6-2 while allowing only three hits in 6 1-3 innings in his previous start. "It helped me get deep into the game." Marquis said keeping the ball down "is a key for me against any team. By no means am I overpowering, so I pitch to contact and my contact has to be on the ground. If I keep the ball in the bottom of the zone, Im going to get those consistent ground balls." Heyward homered on a slider from Marquis. "Probably bad pitch selection, but at that point of the game, up 7-1, sometimes I like to try different things to see where it gets me," Marquis said. "I should have attacked him with a sinker like Id been doing all night, but he put a good swing on it. Hell do some damage with mistake pitches." The Braves lost for just the third time in 10 games. "Im really, really proud of this team," Heyward said. "We have a good team. We dont quit. We have a lot of fun and have a lot of pride, and thats an example of it right there." Seeing a four-run ninth inning "is the bright side of the game," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "You start seeing guys like Heyward and B.J. (Upton) and Justin (Upton) swinging the bats. And Gattis with his fourth pinch-hit home run. You just keep running him out when you get the situation. His swing works. Hes got a short swing and hes a big, strong man." Both of San Diegos homers came off rookie Julio Teheran, who had a no-hitter through 7 2-3 innings in his previous start. Forsythe was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list earlier in the day to take the spot of rookie Jedd Gyorko, who was put on the 15-day DL with a strained groin. Forsythe hit a two-out shot to left-centre in the second, estimated at 445 feet. Venable homered into the Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Deck atop the right-field wall with one out in the fourth to give the Padres a 5-0 lead. Carlos Quentin and Kyle Blanks singled ahead of Venables homer, his eighth. Teheran (4-3) went six innings, allowing five runs and six hits with three strikeouts and no walks. The Padres added two runs in the seventh on Yasmani Grandals single and Marquis double-play ball. NOTES: To make room for Forsythe on the 40-man roster, the Padres designated C John Baker for assignment. ... Gyorko is hitting .284 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs. He has made 51 starts at second base and nine at third. He leads all rookies in batting average, hits (66), runs (36) and total bases (107) while ranking tied for the lead in doubles (17) and second in home runs and RBIs. Gyorko was hurt in a loss Sunday at Colorado. ... Forsythe was placed on the 15-day DL before the season with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 24. ... Padres closer Huston Street pitched a simulated game Monday. Street will pitch an inning Wednesday at Single-A Lake Elsinore. Street went on the 15-day DL June 1, retroactive to May 30, with a strained right calf. Manager Bud Black said Street threw well Monday. NFL Jerseys Store . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. NFL Jerseys Shop . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. . -- Derrick Rose shook off poor shooting early to hit clutch shots late and Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 104-95 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. After an intense finish to the regular season, which saw both American League wild-card spots clinched on the seasons final day, the playoffs are finally here, with the Orioles visiting the Blue Jays to open the festivities.?Will Toronto rule at home, or will it be Baltimore marching on to the AL Division Series?Go inside the numbers and matchups that will decide Tuesday nights game, and then vote for which team will win at the bottom of the page.Inside the pitching matchupWhen Tillman is on the mound:?Buck Showalter goes with the steadier hand of Tillman over the hot hand of the unpredictable Ubaldo Jimenez (who pitched 6? one-hit innings against the Blue Jays on Sept. 29). Its not clear Tillman is completely healthy after missing three weeks in late August and early September with shoulder bursitis. His average fastball velocity in his last start was 90.1 mph, well below his season average of 91.7 -- although he limited the Blue Jays to two runs (one earned) in 5? innings in that outing. Perhaps as a result of the decline in velocity, he has been throwing fewer fastballs down the stretch -- his season rate was 56 percent, but he has been below 50 percent his past three starts. He pitches up in the zone with the fastball, which leads to a high fly ball rate, and utilizes a conventional four-pitch repertoire. He didnt show any platoon split this year (.323 wOBA versus lefties, .326 versus righties).Of course, if any team is going to turn a wild-card game into a bullpen game, it should be the Orioles. Showalter may not ask Tillman to go much more than one time through the order, perhaps going to Jimenez or Dylan Bundy for a couple innings, and then hoping to get to his late-game relievers. Brad Brach has pitched two innings five times this year and Zach Britton has gone more than three outs seven times, including two innings against the Blue Jays in a July extra-inning game. At the minimum, Showalter should be asking three innings out of those two. -- David SchoenfieldWhen Stroman is on the mound: Some believed John Gibbons would go with Francisco Liriano?because the Orioles, despite all their right-handed power, have the lowest OPS in the AL against southpaws. Instead, Gibbons goes with the guy who delivered a clutch effort in Game 5 of the Division Series against the Rangers last year. Stroman is fun to watch -- a short righty with a six-pitch repertoire. He has gone to his sinker and cutter more this year, throwing those pitches more than 50 percent of the time, while mixing in his fastball, curve, slider and changeup. His game is all about keeping the ball down and getting grounders; he had the highest ground ball rate of any qualified starter in the majors. He has been very good his final 13 starts, posting a 3.24 ERA and allowing just seven home runs in 83? innings. Facing the team that led the majors in home runs, Stromans ability to limit the big fly will be the key.As for late-game relief, the Jays pen struggled down the stretch, including three late-game meltdowns the final week. Closer Roberto Osuna pitched six times in the seasons final nine days and twice allowed two runs. Setup man Jason Grilli allowed six runs in his final three outings. Thats why you may see Liriano in relieef and possibly even Marco Estrada on three days rest. NFL Jerseys For Sale. -- SchoenfieldPlayer in the spotlightManny Machado: The All-Star third baseman was injured when the Orioles made the playoffs in 2014, so his lone postseason trip came when he was a 20-year-old rookie in 2012. He hit .158 in six postseason games that year, so you know hes chomping to do something big. Machado didnt match his monster first half, sliding from a .944 OPS to .798, in part because he started chasing more pitches out of the zone. Machado feasts on fastballs, hitting .345/.398/.659, and has a much higher slugging percentage on pitches in the upper third of the zone, so look for Stroman to throw him a lot of offspeed stuff and sinkers at the bottom of the zone. -- SchoenfieldWhat will decide tonights gameHow they handle the heat: No two teams hit fastballs for home runs more often than the Orioles and Blue Jays. Baltimore led the majors with a 5.0 HR percentage against fastballs, while Toronto was second at 4.1 percent. Tillman has allowed a 1.9 percent home run rate against his fastball this season, compared to 3.5 percent against his other pitches. --?Ken Woolums, ESPN Stats & InfoChoosing sides: Who will win??The Orioles are a terrific story, but they earned a wild-card berth largely on the strength of a 50-31 record at Camden Yards. They went 39-42 on the road and 4-6 at Rogers Centre this season. If its a tight game, Britton and Showalters bullpen management give Baltimore the edge. But that Toronto lineup is a chore to navigate in the dome, and the Jays have just a little too much for the Os. -- Jerry Crasnick?With their 253 home runs and just 19 stolen bases, a friend compared the Orioles to a slow-pitch softball team. Yet with 89 wins, make that a very, very good slow-pitch softball team, like the one I was on that won my colleges intramural championship more years ago than I want to mention. While Jerry notes that the Orioles have struggled away from Baltimore, they did win four of six on the road last week, including two of three in Toronto. They also have Tillman going against Stroman, who was 9-10 with a 4.37 ERA and an even higher 7.04 ERA against Baltimore in three starts. And the Jays offense has not been that great lately. I look for a close and high-scoring game. I would not be willing to bet against either team, but I wouldnt be shocked to see the Orioles celebrating a victory on their bench with hot dogs and six-packs of beer.?-- Jim Caple?Home-field advantage hasnt meant much in these one-game affairs, with the visiting team winning six of the eight games played so far. Weve seen managers wait too long to go the bullpen in these games -- but I dont think Showalter will make the same mistake. So unless Tillman absolutely blows up in the first inning, I give a slight edge to the Os because of their bullpen depth and the reliability of Britton at the end of the game. -- SchoenfieldWhere the series standsIts all or nothing for these two teams as the winner moves on the face the Rangers on Thursday in Texas, and the loser can start making offseason tee times. --?

LOS ANGELES - In the final match of the USC Radisson Classic, the Kentucky volleyball team could not get things to click, falling in a 3-0 (25-23, 25-21, 25-23) upset to Northern Iowa on Saturday evening.

Godolphin will continue to support jockey James McDonald after it was announced he faces charges over an alleged betting offence. Shawn McLaws Red Bulls Jersey . McDonald, who is Godolphins retained jockey in Australia, has stood himself down from riding after he was charged with either betting on, or being involved with a bet, on one of his mounts at Randwick last year.McDonald is alleged to have had a betting interest in Astern, whom he partnered to victory at the Sydney track on December 5, 2015. A statement issued by Godolphin read: His decision to step down from riding, pending the outcome of the investigation, is the right one.We will continue to support him throughout this process.Prior to the outcome of this inquiry, and in order not to prejudice the findings, we will make no further comment.Racing New South Wales stewards announced the charges on Tuesday, immediately interviewing McDonald after acting on what was described as intelligence received.Following the interview, Racing NSW stewards issued a charge against McDonald, citing a rule concerning penalising any rider if he bets, or has any interest in a bet on any race or contingency relating to thoroughbred racing involving a race in which he is riding.The stewards added that for the purposes of this rule, a bet includes a lay bet.McDonald was not required to enter a plea, and the stewards accepted his request to be permitted to voluntarily stand himself down from riding immediately, pending the hearing of the charge.A date has yet to be fixed for the charge to be heard.Racing NSW chairman of stewards Marc van Gestel told There are a number of forensic materials that we need to go through, including betting information and other records.We intend to interview other people involving the matter and once those interviews and forensic investigations have been completed we will resume.But it might be a matter of weeks until we can revisit the matter.McDonald enjoyed a lucrative spell in Britain over the summer, partnering the likes of Dutch Connection to win the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood, Big Orange to lift the Princess Of Waless Stakes at Newmarket and Antiquarium, who landed the Northumberland Plate.

SPIELBERG, Austria -- Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in the opening practice session for the Austrian Grand Prix, smashing the circuit lap record for the Red Bull Ring in the process.Rosbergs time of 1:07.373 beat Michael Schumachers best time from the first qualifying session in 2003 by over half a second and was more than a second quicker than last years pole position time. The combination of fresh ultra-soft tyres and the Red Bull Rings recently laid surface undoubtedly contributed to the quick time, but the Mercedes once again looks like the package to beat, with Rosberg holding a 0.649s over Sebastian Vettel in the fastest Ferrari.Lewis Hamilton was second fastest, 0.357 off Rosberg, but had his first lap on his set of ultra-soft tyres ruined by traffic. He eventually set his time on 10-lap old tyres, suggesting he still has plenty of margin to improve given a fresh set. Vettel was exactly 0.2s quicker than Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in fourth, with Daniel Ricciardo fifth fastest, 1.155s off the pace of Rosberg.Although the Red Bull Ring only has nine corners, it proved to be a tricky challenge for several drivers during the 90-minute session. Max Verstappen twice damaged his car against the new kerbs at the exit of Turn 5 and exit of Turn 8. The bright yellow kerbs sit beyond the normal red and white kerbs and are there to act as a deterrent for drivers attempting to steal a tenth or two by either running wide at Turn 5 and 8 or cutting the apex at Turn 7.But the 18-year-old Verstappen was unperturbed by the warning and in the first half of the session lost a front wing endplate as he clouted the yellow kerbs on the exit of Turn 8. During a lull in the session he used his team radio to register a very public complaint, saying: I think those yellow kerbs on the high-speed corners are really dangerous.When he rejoined the track for a quick lap on super-soft tyres he hit the kerbs on the exit of Turn 5, agaiin shedding a front wing endplate before damaging his front right suspension as he rejoined at speed over the second section of kerbing on the outside of the corner. Derrick Etienne Jersey. From that point on he was just a passenger and ended up beached in the gravel trap beyond Turn 6. The mistake meant he did not set a quick lap on the ultra-soft tyres, leaving him eighth overall, behind Carlos Sainz and Felipe Massa and ahead of Daniil Kvyat and Valtteri Bottas who rounded out the top ten. Williams opted not to use the ultra-softs during the session, meaning Toro Rossos position in the timesheets may well drop when all the cars are on track on equal rubber.Vertsappen wasnt the only driver to make mistakes. Twenty five minutes into the session Hamilton spun on the exit of Turn 3, briefly entering the gravel before ending up on the edge of the circuit. Romain Grosjean was following him into the corner and had to swerve to miss him, leaving his Haas pointing towards the barrier. He managed to recover to the track without damage and went on to finish the session 11th fastest.Rosberg took a trip through the gravel at Turn 3 with 30 minutes remaining before Daniel Ricciardo crossed the gravel on the exit of Turn 6 towards the end of the session. Both drivers were able to rejoin with no major damage.Two incidents will be investigated by the stewards after the session. Marcus Ericsson strayed over the pit lane entrance line just as Ricciardo passed him around the outside at Turn 8, forcing the Red Bull to run wide. Onboard footage showed Ericsson lost the rear of his Sauber in the corner, pushing him wide just at the wrong moment. Pascal Wehrlein is also under investigation for failing to stay above minimum lap time under a Virtual Safety Car period, which was deployed to clear Verstappens stricken Red Bull.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The AL West-leading Texas Rangers have made their first move to get more pitching, acquiring right-handed starter Lucas Harrell and left-handed reliever Dario Alvarez from the Atlanta Braves for an infield prospect. Haason Reddick Cardinas Jersey .Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Wednesday that Texas may not be done shopping for pitching with the non-waiver trading deadline five days away. He said there are still ongoing conversations with other teams but didnt get into details.Well see where they go. I cant really handicap it at this point, Daniels said. But yes, thats still our focus.Harrell is 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA in five starts for the Braves since they purchased his contract from Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this month. The 31-year-old sinkerballer pitched in Korea last year after appearing in 88 major league games (62 starts) the previous five seasons for the Chicago White Sox (2010-11) and Houston (2011-14), where he worked with current Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail.The Rangers sent 2013 first-round pick Travis Demeritte to Atlanta. They needed a starter for Sundays series finale at home against Kansas City, and Daniels said the plan for now is to start Harrell then.In his last start for the Braves, Harrell threw six scoreless innings Tuesday night in a win at Minnesota.Alvarez was 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA in 16 relief appearances for the Braves, with 28 strikeouts in 15 innings. The left-hander set an Atlanta franchise record by striking out nine consecutive batters over three games earlier this month.Looking at both of the pitchers we got, we feel like they can help our club, Daniels said. They fill roles on the club, they add depth.The deal was announced before Wednesday nights game against Oakland, when right-hander Yu Darvish made only his third start for Texas since coming off the disabled list. It was only Darvishs sixth start this season after missing all of last year following Tommy John surgery.Cole Hamels (11-2), who the Rangers acquired from Philadelphia before the deadline last July, starts Thursday in the series opener against Kansas City.Two other starters, right-hander Colby Lewis (right lat strain) and lefty Derek Holland (shoulder inflammation) are on the 60-day disabled list and could be back by late August.The Rangers had one open spot on their 40-man roster and designated Triple-A Round Rock infielder Matt Duffy for assignment to create another spot. They will have to make moves on their 25-man roster when Harrell and Alvarez join the team, which could be as early as Thursday.Atlanta, with the worst record in the majors, had added Harrell and Alvarez from other organizations within a week of each other in May.Harrell signed a minor league contract with Detroit on March 1 and was released May 16 before signing a minor league deal with the Braves on May 21. Alvarez began this year in the New York Mets organization before he was designated for assignment on May 23 and sent Atlanta on a waiver claim May 25.You look at two guys that werent even with our system in the middle of May, and now they did well enough that a contending team wants them, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. That says a lot for what they accomplished here.The 21-year-old Demeritte was in the All-Star Futures Game in San Diego earlier this month. In 88 games with Class A High Desert, the second baseman batted .272 with 25 home runs, 59 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Dorian Johnson Jersey .

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent.Southampton manager Claude Puel says he will be patient with record signing Sofiane Boufal, despite the forward making an instant impact on his return from injury. Boufal, who joined the Saints from Lille for a club record fee of £16m in August, made his belated full debut for the club in the EFL Cup fourth round tie against Sunderland on Wednesday having missed the opening two-and-a-half months of the season with a knee injury.The 23-year-old stole the show at the St Marys, hitting a stunning winning goal to secure a 1-0 victory for his side and set-up a quarter-final clash away at Arsenal.  Boufal joined the Saints in the summer, but missed the opening months of the season with a knee injury suffered in May But Puel says he will continue to monitor Boufals comeback and insists the Morocco international will not be rushed into regular first-team football after spending such a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Boufal, of course, scored a fantastic goal. It was an important goal because it gave us a good result, its important for the squad, its important for him after five months out, Puel said.  Soton vs Chelsea October 30, 2016, 3:30pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass It was important for his confidence to score this goal and to come back. All is not perfect because its just the start of his comeback, but we must be patient with him because he can come back step by step. For his first possibilities on the team, its very interesting to see him and now all the people can see his qualities.  Southamptons record signing Boufal scores a superb winner to knock Sunderland out of the EFL Cup But its important to keep him at a good level and he can participate with moderation, he cannot play every time.

Saturday, kick-off 14:15 GMTTwickenhamEngland are 12 on the bounce but lying in wait this weekend are the Pumas, a team Eddie Jones feels are the second best playing in the Rugby Championship. Adrian Peterson Saints Jersey . It is lofty praise for a team that finished fourth in the annual southern hemisphere bonanza but the sentiment is there: underestimate Argentina at your peril.Thoughts of the World Cup draw are at the back of Englands mind with the frequent message from their camp of taking each game as it comes. The Jones era is yet to experience defeat but this weekend Argentina, according to the coach, will offer the sternest test of Englands defence -- one which shipped three tries in 10 minutes to Fiji last weekend. The Pumas are an unpredictable beast but one which is intent on playing expansive, exciting rugby though sometimes to the point of defensive negligence.It is this unpredictability which is worrying England with Jones saying that any game against Argentina is a test of his players manhood. And of added significance to this match from an Argentina perspective is the battle to retain a top eight status in the World Rugby rankings to ensure they dont fall into the third seeds grouping ahead of Mays draw for the 2019 World Cup. For England under Jones, this may be their greatest challenge yet.Team NewsEngland change four for Argentina with George Kruis and Tom Wood returning to the pack and Jonny May and Mike Brown starting in the back three. Teimana Harrison shifts to the bench with Nathan Hughes dropping out due to a foot problem.Argentina make three changes from the side that fell to Scotland. Tomas Cubelli starts alongside Juan Martin Hernandez at half-back while Leonardo Senatore replaces Facundo Isa in the Pumas back-row.England: Mike Brown, Jonny May, Jonathan Joseph, Owen Farrell, Elliot Daly, George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Dylan Hartley (captain), Dan Cole, Courtney Lawes, George Kruis, Chris Robshaw, Tom Wood, Billy VunipolaReplacements: Jamie George, Joe Marler, Kyle Sinckler, Charlie Ewels, Teimana Harrison, Danny Care, Ben Teo, Henry SladeArgentina: Joaquin Tuculet, Matias Orlando, Matias Moroni, Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias, Santiago Cordero, Juan Martin Hernandez, Tomas Cubelli; Lucas Noguera, Agustin Creevy (captain), Ramiro Herrara, Guido Petti Pagadizaval, Matias Alemanno, Pablo Matera, Javier Ortega Desio, Leonardo Senatore?Replacements: Julian Montoya, Santiago Garcia Botta, Enrique Pieretto Heilan, Facundo Isa, Tomas Lezana, Martin Landajo, Jeronimo De La Fuente, Juan Pablo Estelles.Key head-to-headJuan Martin Hernandez is a joy to watch; nicknamed El Mago, he has been crowned Argentinas rugby version of Diego Maradona. He can cover fullback and the centres but starts at fly-half against England on Saturday. He is the only surviving player from the side that defeated England in 2006 but still has all of his wonderful sleights of hand, an unrivalled vision and ability to thrill.His battle with George Ford will be fascinating. Jones feels Ford can surpass Beauden Barrett as the worlds premier fly-half but seeing how he fares against Hernandez will offer an accurate gauge of his progress. One way or another, this match-up will go some way to deciding the winner of Saturdays match.Weather:Those in the stands and on the field will be hopeful of perfect conditions for rugby at Twickenham with temperatures of nine degrees centigrade and a clear sky.Prediction:It should be a thrilling match up at Twickenham with the Pumas stretching Englands defence but Jones side should have enough nous and experience from the bench to extend their winning run with a win by six points.

Jenson Button says Hondas upgraded engine can take some of the credit for his pace on Friday, which was better than Kimi Raikkonens Ferrari in FP2s long runs.Honda spent seven tokens ahead of this weekends Belgian Grand Prix, a significant upgrade for the race at Spa. Button finished FP2 in ninth, less than 0.2s behind Raikkonens fastest time in seventh and 1.4s off Max Verstappens benchmark.Asked if Hondas new power unit was the reason for his encouraging showing, he replied: Its definitely some of it. Weve made a lot of progress today. We were massively slow in P1, but in P2 we changed a few things.Our long run was reasonable as well... I dont know about Sebastian [Vettel], but compared to Kimi our long run on the same tyre was quicker. Compared to the other cars around us, like the Haas, we seem relatively competitive on the long run. So its going to be an interesting weekend.Though Button does not expect that pace advantage to continue he is encouraged by the early signs.I think [Ferrari] are probabbly running too little downforce, tomorrow youll see them more competitive. Trey Hendrickson Jersey. Ill be surprised if thats the case on Sunday in the race, but I dont think were in a bad position. Theres still a lot of room for improvement.The encouraging day was overshadowed somewhat by problems for Buttons teammate Fernando Alonso, who missed most of FP1 after his new power unit suffered a water leak. However, Button is satisfied Alonsos issues are not related to the upgrade.No, its not a new engine issue -- we had an issue like this in winter testing. Its not just this spec of engine. I think as soon as the engines running fine youre OK, but it happens very early on, that issue, so this engine should be no problem at all.Alonso had a new power unit fitted for FP2 -- one which has landed him a grid penalty for Sundays race -- and recovered from his morning setback to record 30 laps.

Try to get him on a flight tonight or tomorrow first thing in the morning. Hes not pitching here in Milwaukee, so as we looked at his Friday start, to give him a couple days back home makes sense.Kershaw has been on the disabled list only once in his nine-year career, in early 2014 with a shoulder strain.Hes going to consult with the docs when he gets back to LA and well see where we go from there, Roberts said before Tuesday nights game at Miller Park.Roberts said he did not know if any examination would include an MRI or CT scan.I think that its to get him in the doctors hands, then theyll go from there, Roberts said. I think that theyre going to do whatever they can to figure out what the problem is.Its been a few weeks where its been in and out and hes so good, it kind of started barking a little bit, so I think that right now we just want to kind of get some answers, he said.Roberts said it was not a hip problem, which Kershaw dealt with last season.Its no hip. I know its the back, to the extent of that, I know its barking and I just want to see what weve got, he said.Kershaw did not specifically ask to return to Los Angeles, Roberts said.I think it was just more of the training staff and him conferring and having discussions and feeling this was the best thing for Clayton, he said.
