MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers have two of the best rookie starting pitchers in the National League -- Zach Davies and Junior Guerra.Davies, a 23-year-old prospect acquired from the Orioles last summer, fits the mold. Guerra, however, is hardly what one would consider an up-and-comer.A 31-year-old journeyman who spent four years pitching outside of affiliated baseball, Guerra has not only stabilized the Brewers starting rotation but he also owns some of the best numbers of any pitcher in the leagueGuerra will take the mound on Sunday in the first-half finale against the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park.Called up on May 1 to replace Taylor Jungmann, Guerra has gone 6-1 in 12 starts and after not allowing a run in 15 1/3 innings over his last two starts, his 2.93 ERA would put him 14th in the league if he had enough starts to qualify among league leaders.Hes faced the Cardinals once already this season, allowing four runs -- three earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in a 3-1 loss at Miller Park.That was the last time that Guerra took a loss. Since then, hes 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA.It feels like hes even getting better, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Guerras last outing. In the biggest spots he seems to step up even a little more.Its quite an impressive accomplishment for a player who was almost an afterthought when he was claimed on waivers last fall from the White Sox.You just have to thank God that he gave you this opportunity of having a good first year, Guerra said. You just have to keep working hard because nothing is guaranteed.Guerra will try to prevent another series victory for the Cardinals, who are 12-0-1 in the last 13 with Milwaukee and have taken 26 of 27 since Milwaukees three-game sweep in June of 2011.To keep that streak going, St. Louis will turn to veteran right-hander Mike Leake, who is looking to snap a personal four-game losing streak.Leake allowed five runs over five innings his last time out, but in two meetings with Milwaukee this season has allowed six total runs in 12 innings.Leake has had plenty of experience with the Brewers, playing all but one half-season of his seven-year career in the NL Central. In 12 career starts against Milwaukee, hes 3-4 with a 4.58 ERA and 3-2 with a 4.81 mark in eight starts at Miller Park.The Cardinals have battled a slew of injuries over the last week, losing three players to the disabled list in the three days leading up to the Brewers series.However, St. Louis seemed to have dodged a bullet on Saturday, when tests on right-hander Trevor Rosenthals left hamstring came back negative, averting yet another disabled list entry.St. Louis did play without left fielder Matt Holliday, who battled ankle tightness Friday, but Matheny said Holliday was available to pinch-hit, if needed, and could be back in the lineup on Sunday.We were a little short, Matheny said Saturday after the Cardinals 8-1 victory. But Holliday was available to come and hit late and he could possibly be ready tomorrow. We had good results back from Trevor (Rosenthal). Its going to be day-to-day with no DL, it looks like. http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Charles-Mann-Jersey/ . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Fabian-Moreau-Jersey/ . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. http://www.redskinsrookiestore.com/Redskins-Tress-Way-Jersey/ .

The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition.

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. After he won his first ATP-level tournament, more than a decade ago in San Jose, California, 18-year-old Andy Murray credited his girlfriend, Kim Sears, with keeping him calm and composed. His then-coach Mark Petchey had stayed home in England, and Sears, the daughter of a tennis coach, watched her future husband play a tournament for the first time.Howd that work out?Back in February, the two welcomed Sophia Olivia into the world, and it immediately became a very different place. Murray didnt hit a ball for two weeks, something that hadnt happened since his back surgery two years earlier.Normally after a week or so, I want to hit a few balls, he told Mens Health in June. When I got back to doing stuff, I felt much better for it.After an indifferent return, in which he failed to win a title in four tries, Murray has triumphed in eight of the 11 tournaments hes played. There were back-to-back wins at Wimbledon and the Olympic games -- when he became the first ever to repeat as a singles gold medalist -- and four straight championships to end to the season. The last, in Paris, brought him the No. 1 ranking, a career obsession.Uh, howd that work out?I dont think it affected the tennis so much, but it definitely gave me perspective, Murray explained. I had to think a little bit more about whats important.Whats important at this weeks Barclays ATP World Tour Finals is carrying that No. 1 ranking into the offseason. Toward that end, Murray has made a critical adjustment. For the first time at this tournament hes never won, hes not staying at a local hotel.Rather, hes making the one-hour commute to the O2 Arena from his home in Oxshott, Surrey.On Wednesday night, presumably, he was home in time for a proper dinner and, perhaps, a change of his daughters nappies. And, rest assured, Murray will find himself in an extraordinary frame of mind.Earlier, when Kei Nishikori, hitting out of his shoes, won the first-set tiebreaker (on his fifth set point), Murray did not hurl expletives in the direction of his box. Instead, he muttered a few choice thoughts mostly to himself.ddddddddddddThat Murray ultimately prevailed 6-7 (9), 6-4, 6-4 was a testament to his new-and-improved frame of mind. It required 3 hours, 21 minutes -- the longest three-set match on record at the year-end event -- and he never regressed into Sour, Dour Andy.As a result, hes on a 21-match victory tear and 2-0 in London -- the first time hes started 2-0 in the year-end event since Shanghai in 2008. If Marin Cilic defeats Stan Wawrinka in the evening match, Murray is into Saturdays semifinals no matter what happens in Fridays third round-robin match.Murray was the runner-up in his first four Grand Slam finals, from 2008 to 2012, and one of his consistent features was an insufferable on-court attitude. Negative body language and a tendency to vent at his support crew were some of the reasons his former coach, Amelie Mauresmo, concluded she could no longer help him.He can still be a prickly presence; there were times against Nishikori when you could sense the surly Murray hovering just below the surface. But he kept his rage largely to himself, in a hand-over-the mouth sort of way. Hes learned to care just a little bit less -- and that has freed him in the same way that Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic embraced fatherhood.After Murray beat Cilic in the first round-robin match, he was asked the inevitable question about the correlation between his evolving family life and the No. 1 ranking.Ive been dealing with wins and losses much better than I did in the past I think just because I have something else thats more important, Murray explained. Throughout the year, Im not having so many ups and downs, because Im not sort of getting too high after wins or too down after losses, which was maybe the case in the past.When I won in Paris, it was great. I really enjoyed that. But then you come home and youre back with your family. Youre just back to normal. So I feel just a bit more sort of even-keeled through the year.
