STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Matteo Manassero birdied his first six holes en route to a 6-under 66 and a share of the lead on the first day of the Nordea Masters on Thursday. Manassero, who won the BMW PGA Championship last week, is tied with Pablo Larrazabal of Spain on the Bro Hof Slott course. "Ive never started that well in my career, that just seemed a little strange," the Italian said. "It was a guess how I would wake up this morning as I had been pretty tired up until last night, but I felt good and I could see that from the first tee when I hit good shots." Manassero is hoping to follow in the footsteps of the late Seve Ballesteros. He wore green pants in honour of the Spanish great for Sundays victory, his fourth on the European Tour at the age of 20 years and 37 days. Ballesteros was 20 years and three months old when he captured a fourth European title in winning the 1977 Swiss Open. "Seve Ballesteros has always been my idol given his personality and what he did for golf and the tournaments that he won, and the way he won them was different to other golfers," Manassero said. If Manassero wins in Sweden he would be more than 13 months younger than when the Spanish star won a fifth Tour title. Two-time Tour winner Larrazabal capped his round with four birdies over his opening nine holes. "I played great to be 5 under par after 10 holes and then 6 under par after 14 and even after a bogey at 16 I managed to birdie the last," Larrazabal said. "So I played steady and I played safe, but then I played aggressive where I could, so seven birdies in a round is good for me." Swedens Fredrik Andersson Hed, Welshman Jamie Donaldson and Englands Chris Lloyd and Simon Wakefield were one shot behind. Donaldson, the reigning Irish Open and Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship title holder, had his five birdies over his outward nine and then had nine pars in succession in his 67. Swedens Peter Hanson, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 23, finished with a 3-under 69. Wholesale Jerseys China .

SAN DIEGO -- Cincinnati Reds right-hander Homer Bailey has waited a long time for Sundays rubber match of a three-game series against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.Rehab is not easy. I wouldnt wish it on anyone, Bailey said recently.Sunday will be Baileys third start since August 2014. During the past 23 months, he has had two rounds of surgery on his right elbow, including Tommy John reconstruction surgery on May 8, 2015. He earlier had surgery on Sept. 15, 2014, to repair a torn flexor tendon.We are certainly happy to see Homer returning, Reds manager Bryan Price said. Hes a quality, veteran presence who is going to add stability to a young rotation.Bailey opened the year on the 60-day disabled list. After two rehab appearances in April, he was again shut down and didnt resume pitching until June 27 when he made the first of six straight rehab starts for Triple-A Louisville (1-2, 5.75 ERA).He was activated from the 60-day disabled list Friday.Bailey will be matched against Paul Clemens on Sunday. Clemens was claimed off waivers by the Padres from the Miami Marlins on June 28.He has since made five appearances for the Padres, including one spot start at St. Louis in the second game of a doubleheader on July 20. He allowed three runs, four hits and two walks with five strikeouts in five innings.Clemens was moved into the rotation Friday when the Padres traded starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea to the Marlins.I like his stuff, Padres manager Andy Green said recently of Clemens, who spent most of this season wwith the Marlins Triple-A New Orleans affiliate.ddddddddddddI like his curve. I think it plays at the major league level. He just needs to find some consistency and gain some confidence. Sometimes, all a player or a pitcher needs is a change of scenery. That might be the case with Paul.Clemens is a 29-year-old right-hander who was originally a seventh-round pick of the Atlanta Braves in the 2008 draft. He is 6 feet 3 and 215 pounds.This is a great opportunity for Paul and other members of the rotation, Green said.Meanwhile, the Padres were flying outfielder Jabari Blash in from Triple-A El Paso (the Chihuahuas were actually in Las Vegas) to take Kemps place on a depleted roster. Even before Kemp was traded to Atlanta during Saturday nights game, the Padres were down two position players.Because of the inexperienced rotation, the Padres are carrying an eight-man bullpen to cover the extra innings created by shorter outing from the starters. And with the loss of Kemp and the unavailability of outfielder Alex Dickerson (right hip contusion) for a few days, the Padres were down to two healthy reserves.They were forced to start first baseman Wil Myers in right and infielder Alexi Amarista in left. Blash is scheduled to start in right field on Sunday afternoon against Bailey.Naturally, Im excited, Bailey said. Its not like another start every fifth day. This is the start of another stage of my career.
