Western Australia 262 and 5 for 275 (Wells 107*, Whiteman 104) lead Tasmania 402 (Doolan 202*, Behrendorff 5-80) by 135 runsScorecard Centuries to Jonathan Wells and Sam Whiteman gave Western Australia hope on the third day against Tasmania, where they turned a 140-run first-innings deficit into a 135-run lead by the close of play. Wells finished the day unbeaten on 107 and was batting with debutant DArcy Short, who was on 29, and their total had moved along to 5 for 275.The morning had started with Tasmania on 7 for 388, but that was effectively 8 for 388 as Alex Doolan, who had gone to stumps on 202, retired hurt overnight after being diagnosed with delayed effects of concussion from a blow to the helmet during his innings. The Tigers added only 14 to their total before being bowled out for 402, with Jason Behrendorff finishing with 5 for 80.Western Australia opener Cameron Bancroft then missed out on the chance to remind Australias selectors of his potential as a Test batsman when he was bowled by Simon Milenko for 11. Bancroft had managed only 2 in the first innings and has not posted a half-century in any of his six Sheffield Shield innings this summer.Milenko added the wicket of veteran Michael Klinger, who was caught behind for a duck, and Hamish Kingston chipped in with a couple of wickets to leave Western Australia in serious danger at 4 for 44. But then came a rescue mission from Wells and Whiteman, who put on 166 for the fifth wicket to ensure the Warriors stayed in the match.Wells was given an unusual reprieve on 13 when he was given out by umpire John Ward, who determined that the batsman had edged James Faulkner onto his pad and to slip. However, before Wells had left the field, Ward had second thoughts about his decision and reversed his call, deciding that in fact Wells had not edged the ball.Wells made great use of that chance and went on to score a long-awaited maiden first-class century, in his 39th match, and having debuted for Tasmania back in December 2008. An opening batsman who has often frustrated by not capitalising on his talent, Wells has finally broken through to score a Sheffield Shield hundred at the age of 28.At the other end, Whiteman brought up his third first-class century and perhaps gave Australias selectors something else to think about as they ponder wicketkeeping options and whether to persist with Peter Nevill. Whiteman, who played first-class games for Australia A this winter, was eventually lbw to Jackson Bird for 104, having already made 54 in the first innings.

The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. NEW YORK -- Given he never pitched into the ninth inning this year, CC Sabathia is happy the New York Yankees brought back Aroldis Chapman.Its exciting when he comes in. It just lights up the Stadium, Sabathia said Wednesday at the Yankees holiday food drive.New York traded Chapman to the Chicago Cubs in July for prospects, including touted 20-year-old shortstop Gleyber Torres and pitcher Adam Warren.After helping the Cubs win their first World Series title since 1908, Chapman became a free agent and agreed last week to an $86 million, five-year contract with the Yankees, a deal that has not yet been finalized.The Yankees also dealt Andrew Miller to Cleveland, leaving Dellin Betances as the remaining reliever from their late-inning triad.Now Chapman and Betances will form a duo, with Tyler Clippard, Tommy Layne and Chasen Shreve among a large group competing for sixth- and seventh-inning mound time.I think with the guys that we have now, you have that same kind of relief where you can go out and pitch a good game and feel like the games shut down once you get to those guys, Sabathia said.Sabathia took an overnight flight from Portland, Oregon, after attending an NBA game with Derek Jeter. Sabathia has been at Yankee Stadium several times each week following arthroscopic surgery Oct. 11 on his right knee.Im trying to get my mobility back and make sure that Im ready to go come spring training, he said.A 36-year-old left-hander, Sabathia pitched with a brace on the knee this yearr and went 9-12 with a 3.dddddddddddd1 ERA, his lowest ERA since 2012. He will make $25 million next year, the final season of his contract.He figures to slot in second or third in a rotation that includes Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda, who also can become a free agent after next season.Luis Severino, Adam Warren, Bryan Mitchell, Luis Cessa and Chad Green figure to compete for the final two starting berths.Well see how it shakes out and who ends up in the bullpen. But its exciting to have this kind of talent, Sabathia said.Severino was 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 11 starts over the final two months in 2015. The 22-year-old right-hander went 3-8 with a 5.83 ERA this year in 11 starts and 10 relief appearances, making only four big league starts after mid-May.I felt like we kind of put some expectations on him, some heavy ones, and things just kind of snowballed on him, Sabathia said. Obviously, him going back down and coming back up and pitching well out of the bullpen helped him confidence-wise.New York is going with youth, planning to start Gary Sanchez at catcher, either Greg Bird or Tyler Austin at first, and Aaron Judge or Aaron Hicks in right.It is a team in transition, Sabathia said. Watching all the young kids come up and do what they did last year was fun, and hopefully they can keep it going and carry us hopefully to the playoffs this year. ' ' '
