WIMBLEDON -- It was a squirrely day all the way around at the All England Club. There were five rain delays on this chilly Friday and the favorites struggled to find their rhythms.No. 4 seed Stan Wawrinka was shocked by unseeded Juan Martin del Potro in the first match on Centre Court, while Serena and Venus Williams both were extended to three sets before winning. Venus was fortunate to escape with a 10-8 final frame.Surely, No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic would restore order to the proceedings when he met American Sam Querrey on Court No. 1. The match was lit beautifully, as the sun came out in earnest around dinner time. We should have known it was going to be a movie with an implausible plot.Querrey, who was intent on fashioning the greatest upset of his career, was virtually unconscious for the 73 minutes he battled Djokovic. He was leading 7-6 (6), 6-1 when the rains came again.It was a stroke of luck for Djokovic, who lost the second set in a scant 22 minutes and seemed headed for a swift defeat. Now, he gets a desperately needed reprieve and a fresh start Saturday, weather permitting.Sleep will not likely come easily for the 28-year-old Querrey.Suddenly, at risk were Djokovics:Streak of 30 consecutive Grand Slam match victoriesFifth consecutive Grand Slam titleOpportunity for a calendar-year SlamOn the surface, Querrey seemed an unlikely candidate to create drama. He had lost eight of nine previous matches against Djokovic. And the ATP World Tours No. 41-ranked player had a middling 9-8 record on the grass at the All England Club.Querrey became the first American to take a set from Djokovic at a Grand Slam tournament since Paul Goldstein at the 2006 Australian Open.His statistic line was extraordinarily clean.Querrey hit nine aces against zero double faults and won all 10 of his service games.The first-set tiebreaker captured the wild oddity of this incomplete result.Querrey, energized, moved beautifully, largely dictating the points. Djokovic looked tired and a bit out of sorts, constantly casting his eyes toward his team. An errant backhand gave Querrey a 4-2 lead and, after the two switched sides, another bad backhand gave Querrey a 5-2 margin.Djokovic reeled him in and leveled it at 6-all, but Querrey closed the deal, converting his third set point.The second set saw Djokovic looking completely miserable. Querrey won 25 of the 40 points.He couldnt have been happy when the rain returned. Not long after the players left the court, the match was officially suspended until Saturday.In that span of Djokovics 30 straight Slam wins, there were only two near-misses, one of them his dramatic comeback from two sets down a year ago here to Kevin Anderson in the fourth round.Thats the template that Djokovic and coach Boris Becker will attempt to replicate. Djokovic has come back four times from 0-2 down, most recently against Anderson.Querrey is 20-1 in his career when leading by two frames and needs to win just one of three potential sets.Sweet dreams, Sam.

HOUSTON -- Texas manager Ron Washington wasnt sure what to expect from a couple of reserves he started on Sunday to give his Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler a day off. The veteran manager was pleasantly surprised. Leonys Martin and rookie Leury Garcia combined to get five hits, score six runs and drive in two as the Rangers completed a three-game sweep by romping past the Houston Astros 12-7. Adrian Beltres three-run homer was one of his four hits, and David Murphy and Martin also homered for Texas. "The type of team that I have this year, guys have been getting opportunities to play a little more than I have in the past," Washington said. "So I think theyre more prepared and more ready to go up there when theres opportunity for them to play and do the job." He was particularly impressed with Garcia, who had three hits and scored four runs -- both career highs -- to become the first Texas rookie to record both since Jarrod Saltalamacchia in 2007. "Leury Garcia was the one guy today that I didnt expect to make a whole lot of contact because hes the one guy thats in that lineup who hasnt been doing a whole lot of playing," Washington said. "He had a good game: scored four runs, got three hits, stole a bag, played good defence. Thats what you like to have in extra guys." Garcia was excited to contribute. "It was awesome," he said. "I feel really good. I had a few days that I hadnt played but I was waiting for my time and I took advantage of it." The Rangers set a season high for runs, and did it quickly. Martin led off the fifth with a home run and Beltre connected later in the inning for a 12-1 lead. Beltre doubled twice and drove in four runs. He homered for the second straight day, hitting a drive that was originally called a double and changed to a homer after the umpires went to video review. Beltre connected off Edgar Gonzalez, signed by the Astros earlier in the day. Beltre has heated up lately with 12 of his 23 RBIs coming in the last 10 games. Hes raised his average from .214 to .260 in that span. "Outstanding. Certainly what we needed," Washington said of Beltres day. "Hes been swinging the bat well and that average is climbing and RBIs are starting to pile up. Hes my RBI guy, so Im very happy." Chris Carter hit a three-run homer for Houston, Brandon Barnes added a two-run shot and Jason Castro had a solo homer. The Astros have dropped 10 of 12. At 10-28, the Astros are off to their worst 38-game start, according to STATS, breaking their 12-26 mark from 1967 and 1975. Murphys two-run homer came in a four-run third. Beltre hit an RBI double as the Rangerss added three in the fourth, and Texas broke it open in the fifth.dddddddddddd Nick Tepesch (3-3) rebounded from two rough starts to allow four hits and one run in six innings, striking out a career-high eight. The Rangers jumped on starter Jordan Lyles (1-1) for 11 hits and a career-high eight runs in four innings. He also balked home a run. "I wasnt throwing the ball over the plate," he said. "I was missing by a little bit and missing by a lot, they hit me around pretty good, then I walked some guys, and they hit me around some more. The loss is definitely on my shoulders, and Ive got to do a better job of competing." Lyles was replaced by Gonzalez and he didnt fare much better, allowing six hits and four runs in four innings. Lance Berkman extended his hitting streak at Minute Maid Park to 18 games with an RBI double in the first inning to make it 1-0. Garcia singled to start the third, stole second base and advanced to third on an error by catcher Castro. Garcia scored on a groundout by Berkman. Beltre doubled and scored on a one-out single by Craig Gentry in the third. Murphy then launched a 91 mph fastball into the seats in right field to extend the lead to 5-0. Tepesch had allowed 11 runs and 14 hits in his last two games -- both losses -- but he was in control from the beginning on Sunday. Carlos Pena singled with one out in the first inning, and the Astros didnt get another hit until Castros homer with two outs in the fourth inning made it 8-1. Martin opened the fifth with a towering homer to right field before back-to-back singles by Andrus and Garcia. Beltre connected on his homer and feel to his knee at the end of the swing before hustling to his feet. It was initially ruled a double, but a video review showed the ball hit on the centre field wall above the yellow line and it was changed. Castro had an RBI single in the eighth before Carter hit his team-leading ninth homer to the Crawford Boxes in left field off Derek Lowe to cut the lead to 12-5. Barnes got Houston within 12-7 with a two-run homer in the ninth. NOTES: Bud Norris pitches for Houston when the Astros open a three-game series at Detroit against Anibal Sanchez on Monday. ... The Rangers travel to Oakland where Texas RHP Justin Grimm opposes A.J. Griffin. ... Houston designated RHP Philip Humber for assignment on Sunday and signed Gonzalez. ...
