#1
BRISBANE, Australia - Tim Cahill set the Asian Cup quarterfinals alight with a spectacular overhead scissor kick and clinched a 2-0 win against China with a header, helping tournament host Australia reach the semifinals in the continental championship. New York Giants Jerseys .As he has so often done, the 35-year-old Cahill delivered for his country in its time of need, scoring twice in a 20-minute period after halftime. Australia, the 2011 finalists, will face either defending champion Japan or the United Arab Emirates next week for a spot in the final.With the Socceroos dominating the contest, Cahill produced an effort to rival his stunning goal against the Netherlands at last years World Cup in Brazil.He latched on to an Ivan Franjic header in the 48th-minute and then performed an acrobatic, overhead kick, directing the ball past helpless goalkeeper Wang Lei.Man-of-the-match Cahill soaked up the roar from the 46,067-strong crowd as he ran across the pitch to celebrate yet another goal for Australia.Someone asked me whether Id scored one like that before and I said yes, against Chelsea away (playing for Everton in the English Premier League), Cahill said. Its instinct. The World Cup was probably a fluke, like people are saying, and today was probably a fluke again.But its never been about me, its been about the team and the amount of work and effort we put in months ago. When I said I really believed in this team, I meant it.Cahill was about eight yards out in the 65th minute when he powered a header into the net from a perfect cross by Jason Davidson.Cahill was given a rousing cheer when he finally left the field in the 80th minute, replaced by Mark Milligan.The reason Timmy does so fantastically well for us is that we manage him really well, Australia coach Ange Postecoglou said. We rested him against South Korea (Cahill came off the bench) because we knew this game was going to be important.In the penalty box hes still world-class. Hes still every dangerous. But I dont need to add anything to Tim Cahills career — its spelled out clearly for everybody. As I keep telling him, who knows, the best might be ahead of him still.Postecoglou praised the efforts of Cahill, captain Mile Jedinak in his return from an ankle injury and veteran midfielder Mark Bresciano, who was starting for the first time at the 2015 Asian Cup.Bresciano was excellent in dead-ball situations and the midfielders calmness and composure helped the Socceroos settle in a high-pressure knockout match.The Australia-China match was the second quarterfinal of the night. South Korea had a 2-0 win over Uzbekistan in the earlier quarterfinal, with Son Heung-min scoring twice in extra time at Melbourne.China coach, Frenchman Alain Perrin, said of course my players are very disappointed ... it means our Asian Cup journey is finished.A physical China lineup opened quickly, catching Australia off guard on the counter-attack as forward Wu Lei tore through the defence.Wu could have easily scored in the 14th minute if not for a tackle from Alex Wilkinson, who replaced the suspended Matthew Spiranovic in one of seven changes to the Socceroos starting side which went down 1-0 to South Korea in Brisbane last Saturday.There are two quarterfinals Friday, with Japan against the United Arab Emirates and 2007 champion Iraq against Iran. Saquon Barkley Giants Jersey . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. B.J. Hill Jersey .Y. - Matt Harvey wants to make sure hes on the mound in late October — if the New York Mets get there for the first time since 2006. http://www.nygiantsfanaticshop.com/Black...ml?cat=938 . -- Mike Shanahan gave Robert Griffin III a rest, and may have turned up the pressure on himself, too.DETROIT -- Drew Smyly acknowledged thinking about the possibility of throwing a no-hitter. When Yan Gomes broke up his bid with a two-out double in the fifth, Smyly shifted his focus to simply winning the game to help his team end a skid. Smyly allowed four hits and matched his career high by pitching seven innings, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 Sunday to avoid avoided a four-game sweep. Smyly (6-8) noticed after two innings that he had held the Indians hitless. "If any pitcher says they dont notice it, theyre lying," he said. "You think about it." The left-hander ended up allowing only one run -- on Gomes seventh-inning homer -- walked two and struck out six. "They didnt see a lot of the same pitches back to back," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Joba Chamberlain walked two in the eighth, and Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth in a non-save situation. The AL Central-leading Tigers (54-41) stopped a four-game losing streak and increased their lead over Cleveland to 5 1-2 games. "Its huge to come and get the win to end that little streak," Smyly said. "But thats baseball, youre going to go on a lot of hot streaks, youre going to go on some cold streaks and you just try to weather the storm." Josh Tomlin (5-7) allowed four runs, six hits and a walk over 4 1-3 innings. Cleveland (50-48) had reached a season-high three games over .500 by winning four in a row. "It was a great series for us," Tomlin said. "Took three games from them, but I came up short." Detroit gave Smyly some support offensively, scoring two runs in the first and two more on Torii Hunters drive deep into the left-field seats in fourth. Austin Jackson led off the first with a double and scored on Ian Kinslers single. Kinssler came home on Victor Martinezs sacrifice fly. Lorenzo Carter Giants Jersey. Indians relievers C.C. Lee and Kyle Crockett stranded a total of five runners by combining to strike out the last two batters in the fifth and the sixth. Cleveland manager Terry Francona was pleased with his pitchers performances against Miguel Cabrera, who went 0 for 4, and Victor Martinez, who was 3 of 15 over the four-game series. "Those guys in the middle are pretty special," Francona said. "And, I thought we did a good job against them." Nick Castellanos hit an RBI double for a four-run lead in the eighth inning, taking some pressure off Nathan, who was greeted by the fans with a mix of cheers and boos after giving up a game-losing hit in Saturday nights loss. "I dont think it hurt that he got back out there," Ausmus said. NOTES: Tigers RHP Justin Verlander (8-8, 4.88) is to face Arizona LHP Vidal Nuno (0-1, 3.00) when Detroit begins a seven-game trip that continues against the Los Angeles Angels. ... Martinez played first base, giving Cabrera a day of relative rest as a designated hitter, and may play there while Cabrera moves to third for a game or two against the Diamondbacks. ... The Indians will stay on the road, expecting to put called-up LHP T.J. House (1-2, 4.40) on the mound against LHP Kris Johnson (0-1, 5.40) Monday night and called-up RHP Danny Salazar on Tuesday night at Minnesota. ...
