25-year-old ace Jair Jurrjens aims 
By dengdai on Mar 22, 2014 03:21 AM
Sweden completed a sweep of the Olympic cross-country relays in Sochi, winning gold in the mens event on Sunday to go along with the title won in the womens event on Saturday. The team of Lars Nelson, Daniel Richardsson, Johan Olsson, and anchor Marcus Hellner cruised to victory in the 4x10 km event, winning in a time of one hour, 28 minutes, and 42.0 seconds. Hellner was given a 14-second lead to work with, and stretched it to 27 seconds before crossing the finish line, waving a Swedish flag he grabbed from the crowd. Spurred by the home crowd and an appearance by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia fought off a surprising France team for the silver, crossing the line in 1:29:09.3. France, not even expected to contend in this event, won bronze in 1:29:13.9. The Canadian team of Len Valjas, Jesse Cockney, Graeme Killick and Ivan Babikov finished 12th in 1:33:19.0. Canadas Devon Kershaw and Alex Harvey were left off the relay team, possibly being rested for the team sprint on Wednesday. Coming off a disappointing result in the womens relay, with the heavy favourites finishing fifth, Norway again failed to hit the podium, placing fourth with a time of 1:29:51.7, well off the top-three finishers. http://www.ericdeckerjetsjersey.com/ . But one point very easily could have become three for the hosts. The first half saw Colorado seize the lead in the 32nd minute through Conor Casey as he took down a long ball from Tyrone Marshall and turned with it 20 yards from goal. (Sports Network) - Mired in their worst slump in more than two years, the Florida Marlins turn to right-hander Chris Volstad tonight when they conclude a three-game series with the visiting Atlanta Braves at Sun Life Stadium. The skid reached seven games for the Marlins on Wednesday night, when Freddie Freemans one-out RBI single in the top of the 10th handed the Braves a thrilling 3-2 victory. The loss marked the first time Florida has dropped as many as seven straight since April 2009. Trailing 2-0 and down to their final strike in the ninth, the Marlins brought two across the plate with a Mike Stanton single to right. Florida again threatened in the bottom of the 10th when Scott Proctor allowed runners to reach first and second with one down, but George Sherrill struck out Greg Dobbs and Scott Linebrink erased Gaby Sanchez to end the threat. Michael Dunn (4-4) took the loss after allowing Freemans game-winning RBI. Volstad, a 24-year-old product of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, was 2-1 on the season after a 4-2 defeat of the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 26, but has since dropped four decisions in seven starts. He allowed sixx hits and three runs over seven innings of a 3-2 loss to Milwaukee on June 4, and, one start earlier, was raked for eight hits and five runs in just 3 1/3 innings of a 15-4 defeat in Arizona.dddddddddddd Volstad dropped a 5-0 decision to the Braves on April 12 in Atlanta and is 2-3 against them in seven career starts. For Atlanta, 25-year-old ace Jair Jurrjens aims to rediscover his own winning form. The Curacao native was 5-0 after downing Philadelphia, 5-3, on May 14, but has since dropped two of four starts, including a 5-0 verdict to the Mets in New York on June 4. In that game, Jurrjens allowed six hits and four runs in 6 1/3 innings. He has eight career starts against the Marlins and is 4-1 with a 3.86 earned run average and 35 strikeouts in 49 innings. Atlanta is second in the National League East and trails the front-running Phillies by three games, while the Marlins are third in the five-team loop and sit five games behind the leaders. Florida took two of three meetings with Atlanta from April 12-14 of this season, but the Braves have won nine of the 13 most recent encounters between the NL East foes. ' ' '
