Nova for the third out the right-hander
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Tony Stewart knocked Brad Keselowski from the pole as qualifying ended Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. [url=http://www.footballramsshop.us/authentic-samson-ebukam-rams-jersey/]Samson Ebukam Rams Jersey[/url] . Stewart waited right until the end of the final round to attempt his lap and circled the speedway at 195.454 mph to grab the top starting spot for Sundays race. Its Stewarts 15th career pole and first since Atlanta in 2012. "It was cool. Im not normally a qualifier," Stewart said. Keselowski made his attempt earlier in the session and turned his lap at 195.419. He was out of his car and watching the scoring pylon as Stewart crossed the finish line, and Keselowski dropped his head in disappointment when he saw hed been beaten. "Stewart put down a great lap at the end, didnt see that one coming," Keselowski said. "Thats why they do it this way. Really exciting and a lot of fun to watch, and quite honestly, a lot of fun to participate in this new format of qualifying." Kevin Harvick qualified third as two Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolets were in the top three. The organization is the only one in the Sprint Cup Series with two wins this season -- Harvick won at Phoenix and Kurt Busch won last week at Martinsville -- but the four cars have been all over the map and lacked consistency. "Tony capturing the pole is as good as it gets for the organization," Harvick said. "Thats a huge improvement for where weve been as a company the last few weeks." Busch qualified 11th as three of the four SHR drivers advanced into the third and final round of knockout qualifying. The final session was dominated by Fords as blue oval drivers claimed six of the final 12 spots and were led by Keselowski, who will start on the front row for the fifth time in seven races this season. Ford drivers Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards qualified fourth and fifth for Roush Fenway Racing. Then came Joe Gibbs Racings Denny Hamlin, the only Toyota driver to make it to the top 12. Trevor Bayne was seventh in his first appearance in the final group this season, and he was followed by Ryan Newman, Marcos Ambrose, Joey Logano, Busch and Jeff Gordon. Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson failed to advance to the final round for the first time this season. "Were really surprised not to have pace here in qualifying," Johnson said. "We have a very fast race car, in race trim especially. Our car is blazing fast. Qualifying hasnt always been my strong suit, and today it showed up here for whatever reason. "Well get her cleaned up and get her ready for the race on Sunday." [url=http://www.footballramsshop.us/authentic-cooper-kupp-rams-jersey/]Cooper Kupp Jersey[/url] . Carreno Busta broke his opponent five times in the match, but also lost his serve three times in the second set before prevailing in the tiebreaker. Both players struggled with their first serve, as Carreno Busta landed just 51 per cent of his to 47 per cent for Kukushkin.

Marek Hamsik, who had earlier missed a penalty, headed Napoli in front in the 23rd minute and Pandev added a second goal five minutes from halftime. Alessandro Matri got Juventus back into the game just after the break but Pandev was on hand to score again in the 68th.

Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist as the Kings stretched their streak to seven wins in a row with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.NEW YORK -- Ivan Nova threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout, Robinson Cano had an RBI double in the first and homered in the eighth as the New York Yankees edged Baltimore 2-0 Saturday for their second straight win over the Orioles. Nova (8-4) outworked Scott Feldman in an efficient 104-pitch outing for his second complete game, helping the Yankees move past the their division rival by a half-game in the AL wild-card chase. New York entered the final day of August trailing Oakland by 4 1/2 games. Baltimore trailed by four. The Yankees appeared headed for another big offensive day after beating Baltimore 8-5 Friday night even though Alex Rodriguez was a late scratch with flu-like symptoms but Feldman (4-4) shut them down for seven innings after allowing a leadoff double to Brett Gardner and Canos RBI hit. Cano later drilled a line drive to right field off Troy Patton leading off the eighth for his 25th home run. Acquired from the Chicago Cubs on July 2, Feldman had won his previous three starts, giving up just four runs. After Canos run-scoring double, Feldman did not allow a hit until Ly Overbay led off the fifth with a single. The Yankees had runners on first and second in the fifth, sixth and seventh but Derek Jeter grounded into double plays to end the fifth and seventh, and Ichiro Suzuki hit a flyball to centre to end the sixth. Feldman yielded one run and six hits in seven innings. He struck out five and walked one. After an injury and demotion to the minors, Nova has been one the Yankees most reliable starters. Using a big curveball to complement a fastball that reached 95 mph, he had Baltimore swinging and missing throughout New Yorks eighth win in his last 100 starts (the Yankees were shut out in the two losses). [url=http://www.footballramsshop.us/authentic-gerald-everett-rams-jersey/]Gerald Everett Youth Jersey[/url]. Each of his strikeouts came on looping breaking balls that were either 82 or 83 mph, according to the scoreboard radar. When Chris Davis fanned for the second time -- to end the sixth inning -- he flung his bat all the way to the dugout in frustration at the nasty pitch. Matt Wieters snapped an 0-for-19 skid with a bloop single to right-centre in the second for Baltimores first hit. Manny Machado singled in the sixth and Nate McLouth led off the ninth with a chopper to the mound that Nova leaped to knock down but couldnt find the ball in time to make a good throw. J.J. hardy fought back from an 0-2 count to draw the Orioles first walk leading off the eighth. Nova then got Wilson Betemit to ground into a double play. Jeter made a sliding stop to his right to start it. When Brian Roberts bounced back to Nova for the third out the right-hander pumped his fist and shouted as he bounced off the mound. NOTES: To make room for newcomer Mike Morse, the Orioles placed Steve Pearce on the 15-day DL with a left wrist injury that has been plaguing him for several months. He hopes to be back as soon as he is eligible. ... Starting with Baltimores Wei-Yin Chen (7-7), the Yankees are scheduled to face four straight left-handed starters. New York is 25-18 against lefties this season. Lefty Andy Pettitte (10-9) is set to start for the Yankees. ... Orioles 3B Machado made the teams 40th error of the season. Baltimore is on pace for 48 errors. The fewest errors in a 162-game season by a team in MLB history is Seattle with 65 in 2003. ... Canos 202nd homer tied him with Bill Dickey for 15th place on the teams HR list.
