Wade Graham has vowed to continue his super-aggressive approach to shutting down Johnathan Thurston, even if it means risking a grand final suspension.Cronulla backrower Grahams hard at it approach to containing North Queensland playmaker Thurston the last time the NRL sides met cost the Sharks star his NSW State of Origin debut.But Graham said he wont change a thing in Fridays preliminary final between the Sharks and the Cowboys at Allianz Stadium.You cant back down, you have to try to pressure him, Graham told AAP.He is a great player and so that inside pressure is a big part of trying to shut him down.Thurston is such a vital part of their side and he showed that again last week.We will have to be at our best to stop him.Graham caught Thurston with a high tackle in the round 14 clash at Southern Cross Group Stadium, won 13-10 by the Sharks. He was found guilty of a high tackle at the NRL judiciary and rubbed out of Origin II.A similar tackle could see Graham miss the grand final.Im not thinking about that, he saidIt was a rough time around the Origin period, missing my debut.But it (the tackle) was one of those things that happened on the footy field.I came out of the line, Thurston ducked and slipped and I caught him high.I dont really think about it too much, just try to concentrate on what I have to do.Graham said the Sharks had been buoyed by their qualifying final win over Canberra, in which they were missing captain Paul Gallen due to a back injury and Graham himself to concussion after seven minutes.If you just isolate that performance, it just shows the team has a lot of character, Graham said.To lose Gal the day before and me seven minutes in no one really gave us a chance and they got it done.It was a hell of a performance.Graham quashed talk of revenge after the Cowboys humiliated Cronulla 39-0 in last years semi-final as the sides play off for a grand final spot on Friday.I dont think there are any thoughts of revenge, we just want to keep the dream alive, he said.

Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. PHILADELPHIA -- Right-hander Aaron Nola will look to win consecutive starts for the first time this season when he and the Philadelphia Phillies face the San Francisco Giants in the second game of a three-game series Wednesday night in Citizens Bank Park.Nola (6-9, 4.78 ERA) will be opposed by All-Star righty Johnny Cueto (13-3, 2.63).The 23-year-old Nola, in his first full major league season, beat the Atlanta Braves his last time out to snap a personal five-game losing streak, even though he allowed three runs on eight hits in five innings. He has compiled a 9.82 ERA over his past eight starts, his roughest stretch since he arrived in the major leagues last July.He last won back-to-back outings when he beat the Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres last Aug. 23 and Aug. 28, respectively. Manager Pete Mackanin said before the Phillies 13-8 victory over the Giants on Tuesday that this start is critical for Nola, the clubs first-round draft pick (seventh overall) in 2014.Mackanin noted that Nola has struggled in particular with fastball command, something that had not been an issue before his recent struggles.Thats one of the reasons he was drafted -- he had great command, Mackanin said. And weve seen it, last year and this year. Hes faltering a little bit now. I think its a bump in the road for him. Thats the way I choose to look at it. You cant pitch 20 starts as well as hes pitched and all of a sudden just lose it. ... I give him the benefit of the doubt.It remains to be seen how long a leash Nola is given, however.Every starts important, Mackanin said. Hes had enough poor ones to where at some point wee have to decide how were going to handle it.ddddddddddddIn his only career outing against the Giants, Nola allowed five runs on 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings during a no-decision at San Francisco on June 26.Cueto, who signed with San Francisco as a free agent in December, lost to the Washington Nationals his last time out and is 0-2 with a 3.94 ERA over his past three outings.He is 1-4 with a 5.46 ERA in 10 career starts against Philadelphia, the highest ERA he has compiled against any opponent he has faced five times or more.The Phillies battered another All-Star, Madison Bumgarner, in Tuesdays game, chasing him after five innings. The left-hander gave up season highs of eight runs (four earned) and 10 hits. Bumgarner hadnt given up that many runs since May 2013, and he hadnt surrendered that many hits since April 2015.Aaron Altherr, playing just his fifth game (and first at home) since coming off the disabled list after recovering from a spring training wrist injury, went 3-for-5 with a homer and a career-high-tying five RBI. He became the first Phillie to have a homer, five RBI and a stolen base in a game since Chase Utley in 2008.He nonetheless insisted hes not trying to make up for lost time.I wouldnt say Im trying to make up for anything, he said. Im still going to go out there and do what I can do, and not ... try to do too much and be somebody Im not. Im going to go out there and be relaxed and let the game come to me, and whatever I can do to help the team win, Ill do.
