#1 five straight NL by jinshuiqian0713 08.11.2019 19:57

Australian freestyle skier Dale Begg-Smith saw his moguls career end with a thud on Monday, failing to advance to the finals in Sochi after a hard crash in the second run. Begg-Smith was born in Canada but has competed for Australia since 2001. He won gold in Turin in 2006 then took the silver medal behind Alex Bilodeau four years ago in Vancouver. He took several years off following the last Olympics, but resumed his career in time for Sochi. His opening run wasnt good enough to crack the Top 10 and advance to the semifinal, but he got another chance in the second qualifier. After a hard crash in that attempt, he failed to qualify. That brings an end to his last stab to return to the sport he once dominated. "It was a desperate move to come back this year," he said in the finish area, a rueful smile on his face. "I was looking for a miraculous performance." Begg-Smith posted a fifth place showing in his first event back this year, but the rest of his results were consistently mediocre. On Monday night, his three years away from competition showed. "I just wasnt feeling it tonight," he said about his run. "The snow was soft and I havent skied on soft snow for four years. I wasnt feeling it, I just got a little bit off." Asked directly if he would ski in the world cup again, he replied simply, "no." As for his future plans, he smiled again: "Im an international man of mystery. Im going to keep you guys guessing."

AMIR JOHNSON: Nice to see him back in the lineup Tuesday night in Washington DC. Played with great energy and purpose.

And on Sunday against the Houston Astros they were pleased to see his work finally pay off with his first win since May 24.PHILADELPHIA -- If this was Roy Halladays last start in red pinstripes, he went out a winner.

Halladay will be a free agent after the season and his last two starts will be on the road, so he may not pitch in Philadelphia for the Phillies again. "Unfortunately, thats out of my control," Halladay said. "I honestly didnt think about it. I dont look that far ahead in the schedule." The top three hitters in Philadelphias lineup -- Cesar Hernandez, Jimmy Rollins and Utley -- were 8 for 12 with four RBIs and six runs. Jonathan Papelbon allowed an RBI single to Giancarlo Stanton before finishing for his 28th save in 35 chances. Marlins starter Brian Flynn (0-2) gave up six runs and 11 hits in six innings. Juan Pierre, pinch-hitting for Flynn in the seventh, hit a double to right for his 2,215th career hit, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio for 175th place on the all-time list, according to STATS. "I never set out to beat any of those guys," Pierre said. "I know all about Joe DiMaggio and what he meant to the game. Just to be mentioned with him is pretty cool." The going-nowhere Phillies improved to 18-13 since interim manager Ryne Sandberg replaced Charlie Manuel on Aug. 16. They have won seven straight over the last-place Marlins. Utley hit an RBI single in the first and Carlos Ruiz followed with a two-run single for a 3-0 lead.

Halladay improved to 114-0 when hes given a four-run lead, the longest streak since Pedro Martinez retired aat 114-0 in similar situations.dddddddddddd. "Doc battled for six innings, he gutted it out," Sandberg said. "He made pitches when he had to and used his defence." Sandberg added that hes optimistic Halladay will improve his velocity after an off-season of rest and workouts. Halladay is finishing his fourth season with the Phillies. He was 40-16 in his first two years, pitched a perfect game in May 2010, threw a no-hitter in his first post-season start later that year and was the NL Cy Young Award winner. He helped the Phillies finish with the best record in the majors both years. "Hopefully Ill have a chance to pitch again," he said. The Marlins got two runs off B.J. Rosenberg in the eighth. Justin Ruggiano doubled one in and scored on Adeiny Hechavarrias single. "I liked the way we battled back," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "We had the guys we wanted up there at the end. We gave ourselves a chance." The Phillies are 71-80 with 11 games remaining in a season that was over a long time ago. Last year, they were 77-74 with 11 games left and only trailed St. Louis for the second wild-card spot by three games.
