the Rays are still holding up rather well in the pitching

LONDON -- For 2 1/2 hours, Venus Williams traded big serves and hard groundstrokes with Petra Kvitova on Centre Court. Williams was playing with some of the power and pace that had brought her five Wimbledon titles. But when it was over, she was left with a sense of disappointment. "The battle is always a little more enjoyable when you win," Williams said Friday after coming within two points of victory but losing 5-7, 7-6 (2), 7-5 to Kvitova, the 2011 champion. All four of their previous meetings went to three sets and this one was no different, with plenty of suspense, intensity, and only a few break points. Williams looked stronger early in the match and was up 5-4, 15-30 on Kvitovas serve, in the second set. But the Czech came up with some big serves, held and won the second set tiebreaker. The players then held serve for the first 11 games of the third set before Kvitova broke No. 30 Williams for the first time in the last game. "Its a shame there had to be a loser in this match and more of a shame that it had to be me," Williams said. Despite the loss, Williams had reasons to feel positive about her week in London. At the age of 34, she has been playing well this season, winning a title in Dubai and reaching the final in Auckland and Miami. This week, she got to the third round at a Grand Slam tournament for only the second time in her past 10 appearances. After her battle with Kvitova, she reiterated that retirement is not in her plans. More than that, Williams still believes in her ability to add to her total of seven Grand Slams. "People have been trying to retire me since I was like 25. For some reason in tennis we always do that to our players. Its weird," said Williams, who disclosed three years ago that she was diagnosed with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease. "We dont encourage them to stick around," she added. "Its like, Get out of here. So Im not getting out of here. I think this year has been a great year for me. Ive had some tough losses, but Ive learned a lot from them. Im finding my way back on my feet. Im proud of myself for what Im achieving on the court." The former No. 1 is next scheduled to play in Cincinnati and Montreal. She said she might add more tournaments to her summer schedule to keep improving her game. "So that way Ill just have a chance, when its really time to play good tennis, I would have had those matches under my belt," she said.

The photos, published on at least one sports website, were taken during batting practice before the Dodgers 2-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. http://www.thelakersteamshop.com/jamaal … s-jersey/. It was the quickest three-goal sequence in Olympic history, with the latter two coming just eight seconds apart. Kessel, Lamoureux and Kendall Coyne all scored twice for the Americans, and Molly Schaus made 10 saves in her Sochi debut. Vlade Divac Jersey .A. Happ and catcher Erik Kratz had a plan. Dwight Buycks Jersey .5 million buyout. The left-hander will be 35 next season and becomes a free agent. The decision Friday completes a $137.5 million, six-year contract that was agreed to before the 2008 season.The Toronto Blue Jays look to get on the right track at home against the Tampa Bay Rays in the second game of a three game set. The Blue Jays will send left-hander Mark Buehrle to the mound. Buehrle, who started off the 2014 campaign a stellar 10-1 mark, has logged just a single win since the first of June, a victory over Boston at the end of last month. Since the Red Sox triumph, Buehrle has dropped one and failed to earn a decision in two straight. The most recent outing for the left-hander came earlier this week against his former Chicago White Sox mates. Buehrle lasted 5 1/3 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits and walking three in what turned into a 6-3 victory for Toronto. Buehrle, a 38th-round draft pick by Chicago in 1998, has a career mark of 10-5 with a 4.18 ERA in 25 appearances versus the Rays. The Blue Jays are 4.5 games back of the second wild card spot in the American Leauge, and nine games back of the Baltimore Orioles for first in the AL East. The Rays have won two straight since losing four in a row, but still sit two games back of Toronto in the American League East and 11 games behind division- leading Baltimore, following an 8-0 shutout in the first game of the series on Friday. Starting pitcher Drew Smyly went the distance for the visitors, allowing just two hits and striking out four as he lowered his ERA to 3.42 and picked up his eighth win of the campaign. "That was, for my money, the best pitching performance Ive seen from a Ray in this ballpark," manager Joe Maddon said of Smylys effort. Evan Longoria delivered his 16th home run of the campaign for the Rays, one of his three hits,, as he knocked in three on the night.dddddddddddd Wil Myers contributed with his sixth home run and scored twice as he also worked a pair of walks. Kevin Kiermaier accounted for three of his teams 14 hits, two of those being doubles. Jose Reyes and Steve Tolleson each notched singles for the Jays, losers of three of the last four and seven of nine. "I figured wed come out there tonight with a little more energy, and we didnt have it," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "We made some mistakes, couldnt turn a big double play, waited back on a couple of balls, things like that." Marcus Stroman started the game on the mound for the hosts, giving up six runs -- five earned -- on 10 hits and three walks through five innings. Stroman also struck out six, but the damage was just too great to overcome. Heading back to the mound this afternoon for the Rays is right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. The Iowa native, who is 5-3 in his career with a 3.08 ERA in 12 appearances versus Toronto, has been active this season for less than two months. The most recent outing for Hellickson took place last weekend against the New York Yankees as he surrendered three runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out five over as many innings. Hellickson was charged with the loss in that meeting, his second in the last four outings. Despite losing David Price to the Detroit Tigers, the Rays are still holding up rather well in the pitching department with a combined 3.44 ERA which is eighth-best in the majors at the moment. Opponents are hitting only .235 against Tampa Bay hurlers as well, the fifth-lowest mark in baseball.
