Sri Lanka 537 and 5 for 0 (Silva 3*, Karunaratne 1*) lead Zimbabwe 373 (Cremer 102*, Moor 79, Herath 3-97) by 169 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsA fantastic rearguard effort from Zimbabwes middle and lower order, led by Graeme Cremers maiden Test ton, helped the hosts avoid the follow-on and post 373 after they had slumped to 139 for 6 in the morning. Peter Moor put his wicketkeeping woes behind him to contribute with an 84-ball 79 and Donald Tiripano struck a composed 46.Cremer, batting at No. 8, played an attritional Test innings, waiting for anything overpitched. He received plenty such deliveries and drove elegantly to accrue seven of his ten boundaries through mid-off and extra cover. His timing was superlative and placement impeccable, important requisites for boundary scoring.The highlight of Cremers innings was his discipline with straight-bat strokes, even if the ball was short or wide. He milked the spinners, particularly with the spin to long-on or square on the leg side.On 58, Cremer was dropped at backward square leg by Asela Gunaratne. Other than that opportunity, Cremer looked impregnable with a tight defense - bat close to body, head over the ball and a good judgement of which balls to play at and which to leave. Such was his fluency that his hundred never looked in doubt as long as he didnt run out of partners. Suspense arose around the ground when he needed No. 11 Chris Mpofu to block out one delivery from Rangana Herath. Moor was more selective in his choice of shots, opting to loft the spinners straight as opposed to opting for cross-bat strokes. He used his feet effectively and hit the slower bowlers through the line in the arc between long-off and long-on. When the bowlers compensated with a shorter length, the cut shot was productive.He reached his fifty off 49 balls, thereby forcing Herath to dispatch fielders to the boundary. At one point, Herath had five deep fielders off his own bowling.Just when Moor looked set for his maiden Test ton, debutant Lahiru Kumara worked him over with a pair of outstanding bouncers on a slow pitch. The first, directed at the neck, caused Moor to fend awkwardly. The ball lobbed over slip for four. Two balls later, another well-directed bouncer accounted for Moor. The ball ballooned up off the glove and gully raced in to complete a low catch, Kumaras first Test wicket and Sri Lankas only one of the session.Kumara continued to trouble the batsmen with extra oomph in a testing spell. Cremer survived a nasty moment when Kumaras bouncer hit and subsequently detached his helmet, which fell perilously close to the stumps.He added 92 with No. 9 Donald Tiripano, who was equally adept at keeping out the straight deliveries and accumulating runs against Sri Lankas tiring spinners. Against the run of play, Tiripano missed a straight one from part-timer Kusal Mendis - it was Mendis first wicket in first-class cricket.Despite the lower-order fightback, Sri Lanka still retained control of the Test. They would have been pleasantly surprised with the conditions that greeted them on the third morning. After the Harare surface offered nothing to seam or spin on the first two days, it started to behave differently. Variable bounce, pace and enough lateral movement for the seamers helped Sri Lanka run through Zimbabwes middle order in a five-wicket morning session.Overnight batsmen Tino Mawoyo and Hamilton Masakadza began the day with staunch defence, even with low bounce evident from the second ball of the morning. Mawoyo was uncertain against the short ball on the second evening, and Suranga Lakmal exploited that weakness by repeatedly employing the bouncer. Some flew off the surface, some looped to the keeper.In the fifth over of the day, a bouncer hustled Mawoyo for pace and an attempted pull resulted in a top-edge, which was taken by square leg placed halfway to the boundary.Sean Williams and Craig Ervine, Zimbabwes best batsmen, were visibly disconcerted by the bounce and chose to sweep Rangana Herath. Both batsmen struck boundaries but the stroke was always fraught with risk on this pitch. Williams attempted a hard sweep off Herath but the ball bounced extra and took the leading edge, which was snaffled at deep square leg. Zimbabwe had lost their third wicket of the day inside 12 overs, the second off a top edge.Dilruwan Perera capped an excellent morning for Sri Lanka with two lbws, both non-turning offbreaks. Ervine missed a straight delivery, his pad interfering with the bats contact with the ball. Malcolm Waller went back to what he thought was a long-hop, but the ball skidded on and beat his pull.

Cheap Red Sox Jerseys .com) - Manchester City midfielder David Silva is expected to miss the next four weeks because of a calf problem. CHICAGO -- Chris Sale raced out as the majors first 14-game winner and was the AL starter in the All-Star game. Then the White Sox ace hit a rut and drew attention not for his pitching, but his jersey-shredding tirade.After a masterful eight scoreless innings that produced his first victory in 49 days, Sale acknowledged the importance of what he called getting over the hump.Sale allowed three hits and threw a season-high 120 pitches, Jose Abreu homered and Chicago beat the Oakland Athletics 6-2 on Saturday night.My last few times out I havent been as good as Ive wanted to be or as good as Ive needed to be, the lefty said.Sale (15-6) had gone 0-4 in his previous six starts, interrupted by a five-day suspension for slicing up throwback uniforms he didnt want to wear.He looked like his dominant early season self, retiring the last seven batters, five by strikeout, and working in sync with catcher Dioner Navarro.Hes calling two-seams and four-seams on both sides of the plate. Front-door, back-door breaking balls and stuff like that, Sale said.The White Sox scored four runs with two outs, including Abreus solo shot that just cleared the eight-foot wall and Brett Eibners glove in right in the first inning. Melky Cabrera added an RBI double in the second and a run-scoring single in the fourth off Ross Detwiler (1-2).But the White Sox made it interesting late.With baseball, the tying run usually comes on deck. We do it whether its 2-1 or 6-0, manager Robin Ventura said.Oaklands Danny Valencia homered in a two-run ninth off Nate Jones. David Robertson came in with two on and got the final two outs for his 31st save when Chad Pinder, playing in his first major league game, flied deep to center.I thought it was easily getting over (Adam Eatons) head, As manager Bob Melvin said. From the sound of it and I know his power, you felt like it had a chance to be a home run.Detwiler allowed six runs and 10 hits in four innings in his third start for the banged-up As, who have dropped six of seven.Carlos Sanchez and Tim Anderson added two-out RBI singles for the White Soox a night after they were held to two singles.ddddddddddddThe White Sox snapped a two-game skid and won for the fourth time in 14 games.Abreu, who has hit safely in 15 of 17 games, also doubled and scored in the third and walked in the fourth.Sale got Khris Davis to hit into a double play with two on in the first. Sale walked three but got stronger as the game went on. He retired 15 of the last 16 batters and hit 96 mph while striking out the side in the seventh. He struck out eight and lowered his ERA to 3.15.Theres a lot of movement on the baseball and his breaking ball does two different things depending on which side of the plate he throws it, Melvin said. Even if you guess right, theres so much movement on it, its tough to square up.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: RHP Jesse Hahn (shoulder) was supposed to come off the disabled list and start Sunday, but he suffered what he called minor discomfort in a bullpen session. Hell have at least another rehab game, but Im not sure when, Melvin said. ...
