"The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nelson Cruzs case for a spot in the All-Star game just got a little stronger. Cruz hit a grand slam, Nick Tepesch took a shutout into the sixth inning and the Texas Rangers beat the Houston Astros 10-5 on Friday night. With the All-Star rosters set to be announced Saturday, and likely no Texas players among the starters for the first time since 2007, Cruz sent his 21st homer into the bullpen in left-centre field to make it 6-0 in the second. Cruzs fate is in the hands of Detroit manager Jim Leyland, with a combination of player and fan voting making the final choice. He is hitting .268 and leads the team in homers and RBIs (65). "He certainly deserves it," said manager Ron Washington, who had Leylands job the previous two years after the Rangers went to the World Series. "I do believe Jim will make the right decision and the players will make the right decision." David Murphy and Adrian Beltre also homered for the Rangers, who won the first American League game in Arlington between the in-state rivals and beat Houston for the 10th time in 11 games overall. Tepesch (4-6) had five strikeouts the first time through the Astros lineup and had a career high of nine by the fourth inning. The rookie right-handers previous best of eight strikeouts came in his last win -- nine starts ago against the Astros on May 12. Lucas Harrell (5-9) walked four in the first two innings and three of them scored. Cruzs homer came after consecutive walks to Ian Kinsler and Murphy. Elvis Andrus also was aboard on a one-out single. New Astros president Reid Ryan had a front-row view of just how far his last-place team has to go to become a contender. He was sitting next to his dad, Hall of Fame pitcher and Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan. The younger Ryan couldnt have been pleased by what he saw in the fourth inning. With two outs, Brett Wallace barely had to move before dropping a popup by Cruz near first base. Beltre followed with a shot off the foul pole in left for his third homer in six at-bats and No. 17 on the season. "The effort and focus is definitely there," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "That goes without question with these guys. Its one of those things weve played good teams that have played well and we have not played our best baseball. We just need to clean it up, play solid baseball." Tepesch, who had a 12-1 lead before the bullpen struggled in a 122-7 win in Houston in May, was up 10-0 when he once again had trouble getting outs the third time through the order. Morten Andersen Jersey. Four straight Astros reached to start the sixth, capped by a two-run double from Chris Carter that knocked out Tepesch. Carlos Pena and J.D. Martinez singled before Ross Wolf got a flyout and turned a double play on a soft liner back to him from Matt Dominguez. Tepesch was charged with four runs and seven hits in five innings to go along with his nine strikeouts. Opposing batters are hitting .158 the first time they see Tepesch in a game, but .465 the third or fourth time. "All in all, he threw the ball well," Cruz said. The Rangers had scored one run in the first inning over their previous 25 games when Murphy hit a drive into the Texas bullpen in right-centre after Kinslers leadoff walk. It was Murphys 10th homer and sent the Rangers to their highest scoring game since they beat Detroit 11-8 on May 19. "We know what were capable of as an offence," said Murphy, who was moved up to No. 2 in the order despite hitting just .221 because of a recent slump by Andrus. "Its been up and down a little this year. Were trying to finish strong (before the All-Star break) and tonight was a great way to do that." Harrell, who was the losing pitcher when Texas ace Yu Darvish came within an out of a perfect game in the second game of the season, walked six to bring his season total to 53 in 103 2-3 innings. The Rangers had just five hits while scoring nine runs -- seven earned -- against him. "You walk six guys, youre going to give up a lot of runs," said Harrell, who gave up just one run in six innings in the loss to Darvish. "I couldnt throw a breaking ball for a strike." NOTES: Cruzs grand slam was his sixth at Rangers Ballpark, a record, and second this year. He also did it on April 21 against Seattle. ... Astros C Jason Castro had two hits and an RBI. ... Manny Ramirez, the 41-year-old slugger who signed a minor league deal with Texas this week, will serve as the designated hitter when he plays his first game for Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday. ... Rangers RHP Kyle McClellan accepted an outright assignment to Double-A Frisco and is expected to report Sunday. ... RHP Alexi Ogando (right shoulder inflammation) is set for his first rehab start Saturday at Round Rock. Hes on the DL for the second time this season. ' ' ' 
Antonio Conte has a hard job on his hands at Chelsea next season, and the club will be far less attractive to players without Champions League football, says Graeme Souness. Marco Scandella Jersey . Conte was named as Blues manager from next season on Monday, replacing interim Guus Hiddink was sacked in May.Chelseas form has improved since Jose Mourinhos departure, but the champions still sit 10 points off fourth place with just seven games remaining. Conte must first concentrate on Italy at Euro 2016 this summer Conte is currently building towards Italys Euro 2016 campaign in France, but Souness says the to-do list at Stamford Bridge will not be easy to tick off.Souness told Sky Sports: I think hes got a monster job on now, Chelsea this year have been disappointing to say the least. Will Conte fit Chelsea? With Antonio Conte taking over at Chelsea in the summer, what do we know about the Italy boss? They started as champions and never really got going. When Guus Hiddink come in you thought all their problems would be solved but they werent. Theyve been up and down all season, even with the lift a new manager gives you.I think Jose saw the writing on the wall, he knew he had been lucky to win the league last year, he must have driven them, cajoled them, bullied them, to get to that point to win it, and at the start of the season he wanted more players and better players, and for some reason he didnt get them. Chelsea are 10 points off the top four with seven games remaining That must have been the reason he fell out with whoever he ended up falling out with, and that would include the players. Looking back, Jose was right, because that group were not good enough to go and retain the title this year.Conte coming in, unless he can go out and buy some real quality, it will be another up and down season for Chelsea. Contes Chelsea to-do list Resolve John Terrys future, sort out transfer policy, rejuvenate Eden Hazard... Contes to-do list Chelsea won the league by eight points from Manchester City last season, but spent less in the summer of 2015 than they had the previous five seasons.Souness believes Conte will need substantial backing to improve the Chelsea side, but their potential absence from Europes elite club competition for the first time since 2002 will have a major impact. Jose Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December after a woeful start to the campaign for the champions Thats the dilemma [no Champions League], the attraction of Chelsea in recent years can be put to two main reasons, the wages plus the attraction of the Champions League. So there is no quick fix to Chelsea.Hes a different voice, has different thoughts. Does he have a magic wand? No coach has a magic wand, its all about players. Roman Abramovich (left) must back Conte substantially if Chelsea are to succeed next season, says Souness He has a hard job on his hands, so will need a lot of support from the owner, will have to buy well, and then Chelsea will be challenging again.Theyve still got the nucleus of a really good team, but the fact they really couldnt get going again when they replaced the so-called problem with Jose falling out with people, they didnt really go on from there.

Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Jalen Hurts accounted for four touchdowns and Minkah Fitzpatrick had three interceptions as No. 1 Alabama extended its nation-best winning streak to 18 games with a 49-30 victory over No. 16 Arkansas on Saturday night.The win is the 10th straight for the Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) over the Razorbacks, and Fitzpatricks 100-yard interception return for a touchdown was Alabamas 10th non-offensive score of the season.Hurts finished 13-of-17 passing for 253 yards with two touchdowns. He ran for two more TDs.Damien Harris added 122 yards rushing on 13 carries for the Crimson Tide, which finished with 517 yards of total offense and averaged 10.1 yards per play.Austin Allen completed 25 of 48 passes for 400 yards and three touchdowns for Arkansas (4-2, 0-2), also throwing three interceptions as the Razorbacks finished with five turnovers overall. Arkansas finished with 473 yards of total offense, but it gained only 73 yards on the ground on 36 carries.Alabamas winning streak is now one off coach Nick Sabans best at the school. The Crimson Tide won 19 straight games over the 2009-10 seasons.THE TAKEAWAYAlabama: The three turnovers on offense werent vintage Crimson Tide, but the defensive effort -- five forced turnnovers -- was. Derek Roy Jersey. Alabama has already matched last seasons total of 10 non-offensive touchdowns.Arkansas: The Razorbacks have a mess on their hands on the offensive line. Theres no other way to put it. Arkansas began the season with three first-year starters up front, and they once again struggled in both pass protection (six sacks, numerous other hits on Allen) and running the ball -- averaging two yards per rush.POLL IMPLICATIONSNot that anyone needed more reasons to keep Alabama at the top of their ballots, but the Crimson Tide arent going anywhere after yet another convincing victory. Arkansas, meanwhile, is at the mercy of the voters after its second loss of the season -- hoping to remain ranked with No. 14 Mississippi coming to Fayetteville next week.UP NEXTAlabama: The Crimson Tide continue their most difficult four-game stretch of the season by traveling to No. 9 Tennessee, which lost to No. 8 Texas A&M on Saturday. Thats followed by a date with the undefeated Aggies and then LSU on Nov. 5.Arkansas: The Razorbacks remain at home to face the Rebels, whom they have defeated in each of the last two seasons. ' ' ' 
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Air Max Rabatt . -- Jack Gibbs scored 28 points and Peyton Aldridge contributed 12 points and 11 rebounds to power Davidson past Arizona State 68-60 during the fifth-place game of the Tire Pros Invitational on Sunday.The Wildcats (3-1) were patient throughout and moved the ball around until they found the open man. Gibbs, who also had four assists and two steals, was often that man as he consistently got past the Sun Devil guards for uncontested layups. But Gibbs greatest contribution came at the free throw line where he converted 16 of 21 attempts, including two key free throws with 28.5 seconds remaining to stretch the lead back out to six points. The Sun Devils attempted just 13 free throws as a team.If we are playing one-on-one they might beat us but if we are playing five-on-five I think that was the team thing where we are trying to get better as a team, said Gibbs, whose team had 15 assists off 19 field goals for the game. We made some steps today.In addition to Gibbs and Aldridge, the Wildcats also got double-digit production from Will Magarity (10).Guard Tra Holder led ASU with 18 points before fouling out with 1:45 remaining and his team trailing 62-52. Shannon Evans II also finished with 13 points and seven assists for ASU (3-2).But the Sun Devils, who shot 29 percent from the field in the first half and 32 percent for the game, were hurt by the missed shots of key players like Torian Graham (1 for 12 from the field) and Obinna Oleka (5 for 16).I thought we played as poor of an offensive half as I think we will maybe play all season, said ASU coach Bobby Hurley, whose team pulled within four points late after trailing by as many as 18 in the second half. We are way more capable and better as an offensive team than we showed in the first half. We didnt make shots.Davidson, an Atlantic 10 school, went 2-1 against Power 5 opponents in this weeks tournament. The Wildcats defeated both Missouri and Arizona State convincingly after losing to Clemson in the opening round.Two very good wins against two very well-coached and very talented teams, said Davidson coach Bob McKillop. To be able to head back to Davidson with two wins against Power 5 teams under our belts is a great statement about us.BIG PICTUREDavidson: The Wildcats proved themselves as a quality team that can play with the big schools. McKillops team beats opponents by being patient, making the extra pass to find the open man. It worked well in wins over Missouri and Arizona State in this tournament. Davidson, however, must take better care of the ball. The Wildcats committed 18 turnovers against ASU.Arizona St: This tournament has to be considered a letdown for the Sun Devils, who suffered double-digit losses to non-Power 5 opponents Northern Iowa and Davidson. Their lone victory in the tournament came against Tulane in a loser bracket game. Holder is the Sun Devils leader but he has to play under control and take better shots.NO CHARITYThere was a huge disparity in free throws for the game with Davidson going 23-30 at from the line, while the Sun Devils had just 13 free throw opportunities and converted seven.The free throw line killed us today, Hurley said. Our inability to get to the free throw line and their ability to get to the line was surprising considering they are a 3-point shooting team.SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHTGibbs, who was on fire for much of the tournament, tied a Tire Pros Invitational record with 71 points over the three days.UP NEXTDavidson: The Wildcats face Charlotte at home on Saturday.Arizona St: The Sun Devils return home to face Citadel on Wednesday. Air Max Schweiz . They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name.

Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. PULLMAN, Wash. -- Eight years ago, Washington walked off the field at Martin Stadium engulfed in a sea of crimson, its football program at the lowest point in its history.When they left that same field on Friday night, the Huskies were passing the Apple Cup trophy like a baton -- from teammate to teammate -- hoping its the first of a few trophies to be celebrated this year.Next up, perhaps a Pac-12 championship trophy. And after that, who knows what kind of hardware will be at stake for No. 6 Washington.I think the really good teams, the special teams can finish, Washington coach Chris Petersen said. The hard part about that is youre playing better teams here as we finish. And so the next team well play will be a really good and elite team. So its hard to finish, and then the one after that will be a really good team. Well figure all this out after were done playing, because we just feel like weve got some good football left.Washingtons dominant 45-17 win over No. 23 Washington State on Friday was complete affirmation of what Petersen has accomplished in three seasons in charge of the Huskies. More than just the Apple Cup and bragging rights within the state were at stake. A loss to the Cougars would have left Washington (11-1, 8-1 Pac-12) out of the Pac-12 title game and out of the College Football Playoff.It was a game of enormous magnitude. And its importance was seemingly met with a collective shrug by the Huskies, who rolled to a 28-3 lead in just 14 minutes, 37 seconds, and simply overwhelmed Washington State.It all comes back to the details that coach (Petersen) preaches. Just comes back to practice and how we study our opponents, all of that, Washington left tackle Trey Adams said.Washingtons first reward is a spot in the Pac-12 championship game on Friday against either Colorado or Southern California. Matchup wise, Colorado is probably the preferred opponent. From a revenge standpoint, the Huskies wouldnt mind another shot at USC, who beat Washington 26-13 in Seattle earlier this month.Its the reward waiting after next Friday that looms as being the ultimate statemment of how far the Huskies have climbed since that 0-12 season in 2008. Air Max Günstig. That lost season was punctuated by a loss to a Washington State team that finished 2-10.A win next Friday should put the Huskies into the CFP final four and a shot at the schools first national title since the Huskies were co-champs with Miami in 1991.I really dont care. Whoever we play, it will be awesome. Itll be a great game and great experience, Washington WR John Ross said.The loss to USC appeared to expose flaws hidden by Washingtons soft schedule through the first three quarters of the season. The pass rush disappeared. Quarterback Jake Browning was flustered and made careless mistakes. The 13 points Washington scored against the Trojans were the fewest in 21 games.This is why the last two games -- a blowout of Arizona State and the romp over Washington State -- eased those concerns and made the slog against USC appear as the outlier.Browning rediscovered the form that had him in the Heisman Trophy conversation earlier this season. He was 13 of 17 for 202 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter alone Friday, and finished 21 of 29 for 292 yards. He has 40 TD passes for the season, joining Jared Goff and Marcus Mariota as the only Pac-12 QBs with 40 or more TD passes in a season.Equally important is a defense that stymied Arizona State, then held Washington State to its lowest output of points and yards since last years Apple Cup when quarterback Luke Falk was injured and didnt play. Washington made a trio of goal line stands and held the Cougars to a season-low 334 yards.It means a lot, but at the end of the day its about us. We didnt listen to the outside noise. We didnt let it leak into our locker room, Washington running back Lavon Coleman said. We were focused on getting ready to play a championship game with championship effort and take care of our business.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Now that his team is guaranteed to have a losing record for the first time in his four seasons in Arizona, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians next chore is to prepare a team headed nowhere for a Christmas Eve encounter with the Seahawks in Seattle.Its the Seahawks, Arians said at his Monday news conference, so we should be ready to play.Arians liked everything but his defense in Sundays 48-41 home loss to the New Orleans Saints. The outcome left Arizona at 5-8-1. The Cardinals finish the season with road games at Seattle and Los Angeles, and the best they could hope for is to wind up 7-8-1.But Arizona is 1-5 on the road with the only victory away from home at San Francisco, a team that stands 1-13.And a strong finish to the season would entail beating a Seahawks team that will have extra rest and something to play for when the teams meet at Century Link Field.Arizona has won in Seattle two out of three times under Arians, including last seasons 39-32 back-and-forth triumph en route to a 13-3 season and an NFC West title for the Cardinals.The way it went, to get way ahead, he said, to lose it, and then come back, it was very special.Now, Seattle (9-4-1) has sewn up the division title and is a half-game ahead of Detroit and Atlanta for the No. 2 seed in the NFC and the first-round bye that goes with it.Arians has a healthy respect for the Seahawks.Every time you play them, he said, you better have your big-boy pants on.That will be a big challenge for an inexperienced, makeshift offensive line that held up well against the Saints. So will the next game, the season finale against the rugged front of the Rams.Theyll have their hands full both times, Arians said. Being on the road with arguably the two best, most disruptive players in (Michael) Bennett and Aaron Donald, we have our hands full when we have a healthy offensive line.Two months ago in Arizona, the Cardinals and Seattle fought to an odd 6-6 tie with both teams missing chip-shot field goals that would have won the game in overtime.This is a much different Arizona squad, though, after a series of injuries.We dont have the ssame team we played them here with, but I like the way we played this past week offensively, Arians said. Wholesale Football Jerseys. Special teams, other than the (missed) extra point, were good. We had a couple of good kickoff returns. Defensively, weve got to show up.The coach described the play of his secondary as very, very below par for us.He said safety Tyrann Mathieu, playing despite a shoulder injury, gave it everything he had.But, he said of Mathieus play, it aint Ty.There were some bright spots.In addition to the overall strength of the inexperienced offensive line, Arians also liked the play of defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, the first-round draft pick who played after being inactive for most games this season.Robert did well, Arians said. The stat sheet didnt look it, but he was explosive. Hes been practicing really well.The coach has criticized Nkemdiche for not working hard enough in practice, but said effort isnt a problem now.The last six weeks he has (worked hard), Arians said. The opportunity presented itself this time. He had a really good week of practice.David Johnson set an NFL record by topping 100 yards from scrimmage in the first 14 games of a season. But Arians doesnt like Johnsons chances for reaching another huge milestone -- 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving.Johnson needs 200 yards receiving to reach the goal.Ill be surprised if he gets it, Arians said. One-hundred yards as a back receiving is very hard to do, two weeks in a row against two really quality defenses, two best in the league.Game notes Quarterback Carson Palmer said after Sundays game that he expects to be back next season. ... Because the Cardinals play on Saturday, the players had Monday off. ... Arizona released cornerback Tharold Simon and promoted cornerback Harlan Miller from the practice squad. Miller was the Cardinals sixth-round draft pick this year out of Southeastern Louisiana.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' ' 
ST. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys . LOUIS -- St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, whose team missed the playoffs in 2016 for the first time in his five-year tenure, has agreed to a three-year contract extension.The Cardinals announced the new contract Thursday, a day after the rival Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Terms were not disclosed. Matheny had one year remaining on his previous contract, and the extension keeps him with the team through 2020.The Cardinals have averaged 92 wins per season since Matheny took over after Tony La Russa retired following the World Series-winning 2011 season. Overall, Matheny is 461-349.Matheny, 46, a former Gold Glove catcher, led the Cardinals to playoff appearances in 2012 through 2015 before falling one game short this season, including NL Central titles in 2013-2015. He also led St. Louis to the 2013 World Series, losing in six games to Boston.Matheny was lauded for leading the Cardinals to baseballs best record in 2015, a 100-win season in which they lost to the Cubs in the first round of the playoffs. But they dropped to 86 wins last season, 17 1/2 games behind the Cubs.The Cardinals, New York Mets and San Francisco Giants were in a three-way race for the final two playoff spots, with the Cardinals falling just short.Mike has continued the Cardinals tradition of winning in his first five years as manager and we are happy to extend his contract leading our club on the field through 2020, Cardinals principal owner and CEO, Bill DeWitt Jr., said in a statement.A message seeking comment from Matheny was not immediately returned.The Cardinals also announced changes in their coaching staff.

What player on each team is most likely to be traded between now and the 2017 trade deadline? Well consider players currently on each teams 40-man roster plus prominent prospects. And, yes, you can pull this out next July and remind me that I was wrong.NL West?San Francisco Giants -- Chris Shaw, 1B.

And we know the Giantts love to trade their prospects. Wholesale China Jerseys. ?Los Angeles Dodgers -- Yasiel Puig, RF.

A broken relationship that probably cant be fixed. ' ' ' 
Prince Ali bin al-Husseins lawyers have moved to have the FIFA presidential election suspended. Tedy Bruschi Jersey . Prince Alis legal representatives have made an official request to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to postpone the event because of fears over voting arrangements.CAS confirmed: We have registered an appeal and request for urgent provisional measures filed by Prince Ali Al Hussein. FIFA has been invited to file written observations in reply to Prince Alis request. The request for provisional measures will be decided by CAS no later than the morning of Thursday 25 February.Al-Husseins chief concern is that middle men are offering money to the 209 member associations to vote for different candidates. Al-Hussein wants transparent voting booths used at the congress, but this request was rejected by FIFA, while there have also been suggestions he has asked voters to take a picture of their voting card for proof.Al-Husseins second concern is that two of the candidates, UEFAs Gianni Infantino and the Asian Football Confederations Sheik Salman, are backed by their own associations.They will therefore have more of their own people accredited and present at the Zurich congress, and Al-Hussein is concerned these people will try to cajole the 209 voters to vote for their men.Al-Husseins third complaint is that Infantino, the second favourite to win behind Sheik Salman, has admitted he has been talking to Michel Platini - the suspended FIFA president - on the phone, and that it is breaking election rules. Mark Pieth, the former chairman of FIFAs independent governance committee , has backed Prince Alis calls to postpone the presidential election In a statement, Al-Husseins lawyers said: FIFA opposed our request for an accelerated procedure so that these questions could be decided before February 26. It was therefore natural that Prince Ali goes to the CAS (on Monday).Sky Sports News HQs chief news reporter Kaveh Solhekol, reporting from Zurich, said: Prince Ali has become more forthright in the last couple of weeks but, to be honest, there is not much chance of the election being suspended.Prince Ali and his lawyers do not think the election is going to free or fair, but a lot of people feel this is an act of desperation on his part.Al-Hussein, Sheikh Salman and Infantino are joined by Tokyo Sexwale and Jerome Champagne on the ballot.Sheikh Salman of Bahrain is considered the favourite having gained the support of both the Asian Football Confederation, of which he is president, and the Confederation of African Football.Infantino has received the backing of UEFA, including the English FA.Watch full coverage of the FIFA Presidential Election on February 26 on Sky Sports News HQ.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Thunderstorms shut down the PGA Championship on Saturday before 10 players could even hit a shot, setting up what could be a long, wet and wild conclusion to the final major of the year -- whenever it ends.Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb made it as far as the practice range before clouds gathered, the sky rumbled and storms dumped more rain on an already saturated golf course at Baltusrol. Tied for the lead at 9-under par, they faced a 36-hole Sunday, provided the course could be ready by 7 a.m.Otherwise, another Monday finish loomed, and that was only part of the unpredictable nature of this PGA Championship.Kevin Kisner had seven birdies in his round of 5-under 65 and was at 5-under 205. He was one shot ahead of Padraig Harrington, who also had a 65. They were among only 37 players of the 86 who made the cut to complete the third round.The plan was for the third-round pairings to go right back out Sunday morning, meaning they would finish before the last group even began the fourth round.That will be an interesting dynamic, for sure, said Kerry Haigh, the PGA of Americas managing director of championships. Add to the excitement, actually.It was the second time the PGA rolled the dice at Baltusrol and failed. In the 2005 PGA Championship, they chose not to move up the tee times on Sunday with a high possibility of storms in the forecast, and Phil Mickelson had to return to play five holes to secure a one-shot victory.With storms in the forecast for Saturday afternoon, Haigh said the PGA did not significantly consider a two-tee start Saturday morning in threesomes.The forecast is similar to what it has been the previous two days, with a chance of rain in the afternoon, summer showers. And thats exactly what we got, Haigh said. Unfortunately, today they hit us. And yesterday, they missed us.It was the third time in five years that weather messed with the PGA Championship. The final round was played in threesomes off both tees at Kiawah Island in 2012, and Valhalla was a quagmire in 2014, though the last two rounds were played in twosomes and barely finished.Rory McIlroy won both of them.Haigh could not think of the last time the players were not paired according to their 54-hole score for the final round.Russell Knox lagged a 65-foot birdie attempt on the 18th hole, tapped in for a par and a 67 to reach 3-under 207, and then heard the horn as Marc Leishman was gettiing ready for his 12-foot birdie attempt. Kevin Faulk Jersey. . Leishman has to return at 7 a.m. for that putt, and then wait two hours to start his final round.Knox couldnt resist a playful dig on Twitter:They could use plenty of rest, and a break in the weather. Baltusrol already had about 3 inches of rain this week, and Haigh didnt have a report on Saturdays damage because it was still raining.There is no defense for soft greens, however, and it showed.Streb posted the 30th round of 63 in a major on Friday. Kisner and Harrington took aim Saturday before the rain, each with 65s. Harrington didnt even think he played that well and still shot a 65, his lowest ever in a PGA Championship.Hit the right shots at the right time, and any of the shots that I didnt hit well didnt do me any harm, Harrington said. So it was one of those days. Its nice when you score better than you play. It was just an average day, as I said. Thursday was the day I played well. It was amazing, the best I played Thursday, is the worst score I shot. Thats the nature of the game.Kisner was slowed by a pair of bogeys on the front nine, though he bounced back with two straight birdies and finished with three birdies in his last four holes. You keep it in the fairway, you can attack, Kisner said. The course is receptive enough. You can make a lot of birdies.Mickelson made the cut with one shot to spare on Friday, rallying from an opening tee shot that went out of bounds and onto a side street. He shot a 68 on Saturday and was at 1-under 209, and he predicted far lower scores to come.There is a low-60s round, Mickelson said when he finished. I think somebody is going to break that 63 record in these next two days. The greens are pristine. You can make a lot of putts. They are soft, so you can get the ball very close. I think theres that 61 or 62 out there that I was probably trying to chase a little too hard.Haigh was only hopeful for good weather, as soon as possible. He said the course had so much water it was unplayable even if it stopped raining, and more rain overnight would make a 7 a.m. start unlikely. When the course does get back into shape, the greens will be soft. Baltusrols strength is measuring the right bounce on the greens because of the contours. This might be more like lawn darts. ' ' '
