NEW YORK -- Getting above .500 has proved to be difficult for the New York Yankees.The degree of difficulty is about become even more challenging.The Yankees will begin a 10-game homestand against three of the best teams in the majors starting Friday night when they face the Boston Red Sox.The Yankees will be taking on an opponent that leads baseball in runs (490), batting average (.292), on-base percentage (.359), slugging percentage (.474), OPS (.833) and doubles (216).And the difficulty doesnt let up after that with seven games against the first-place Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants.Its the kind of homestand that can put you in a good position or it could put way downstairs, right fielder Carlos Beltran told reporters during the All-Star break.Way downstairs would be even worse deficits in the American League East and the wild-card races. The Yankees are 7 1/2 games behind the Orioles in the AL East and 5 1/2 out of the second wild card with six teams (Toronto, Houston, Detroit, Chicago, Kansas City and Seattle) ahead of them.Friday begins a stretch of seven straight games against the top two teams in the AL East.Were not in a great position necessarily, but if youre in this position you want to be playing a lot of games, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. That could be a really good thing.The Yankees have reached .500 eight times since May 24 and the latest instance might have been the least unexpected. New York ended the first half by taking three of four in Cleveland after dropping four of six in San Diego and Chicago, respectively.The Red Sox took a 49-38 record into the break and have seemingly recovered from a June slump that dropped them out of first place. From June 14 to June 29, the Red Sox dropped 10 of 16 to fall 5 1/2 games out, but since then they have won seven of nine and concluded the first half with a 4-0 win over Tampa Bay when David Price threw eight outstanding innings and David Ortiz hit a two-run homer.This homestand is what we needed, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Coming off a tough month of June, we gain a little momentum as we go into the break.Ortiz has 75 regular-season games remaining in his career and enters Friday with a .332 average, 22 home runs and 72 RBI.According the Elias Sports Bureau, he has the most RBI at the break of any player 40 or older and is the second oldest player to hit 20-plus home runs in the first half.Its probably beyond our expectations coming into his final season, Farrell said. Just a powerful and impressive first half.Ortiz is not the only Red Sox player to post impressive numbers in the first half.Mookie Betts is batting .408 (20-for-49) during an 11-game hitting streak, the sixth Red Sox with a hitting streak of at least 10 games this season. Dustin Pedroia is batting .315 (23-for-73) during his current 18-game on-base streak and Hanley Ramirez is hitting .408 (20-for-49) in his last 14 games since June 22.Michael Pineda (3-8, 5.38 ERA) has personified inconsistency at various points this season and will open the second half for New York.Pineda had a 2.75 ERA in six June starts but began July by allowing five runs and five hits in six innings during a 5-0 loss at Chicago on July 6. It marked the sixth time he allowed at least five runs, and it is one less than the amount of starts that Pineda has gotten at least eight strikeouts.Pineda is 4-4 with a 4.50 ERA in nine career starts against the Red Sox. On April 30 in an 8-0 loss at Fenway Park, Pineda allowed two runs and five hits in five innings. On May 6 in New York, he gave up two runs and eight hits in six innings of a 3-2 win.If pitching to Bostons offense isnt challenging enough, hitting against knuckleballer Steven Wright might only add to the difficulty for the Yankees. Wright (10-5, 2.68 ERA) took a shutout into the ninth inning and pitched a three-hitter in two hours and 20 minutes on May 8 in New York.Wright is 3-1 with a 1.33 ERA in four outings (three starts) against the Yankees. He went into the break with straight wins despite allowing a combined nine earned runs and 17 hits in 11 innings against the Angels and Texas Rangers.

A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. Nike Just Do It Schoenen Zwart . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. MONTAUBAN, France -- Mark Cavendish started the Tour de France fearing that his training on the track for the Olympic Games would affect his chances of stage wins at cyclings biggest race.After the sprinter from the Isle of Man posted a third stage win in less than a week, its now obvious that the long hours spent on the boards have helped him improve his speed.The 31-year-old Manx Missile, as he is known in the peloton, used his great tactical sense and impressive burst of speed to win the sixth stage of the three-week race in another mass finish on Thursday. It was Cavendishs 29th Tour stage win overall.Oh my god, that was terrifying, said Cavendish, who also wore the yellow jersey for the first time of his career after winning the first stage of the race last weekend in Normandy. That was like the old days, wheel surfing.Cavendish, who had never been as successful during the first week of the Tour before, beat German ace sprinter Marcel Kittel by half a wheel, with Daniel McLay third.Kittel launched the sprint but Cavendish attached himself patiently to Kittels wheel before overtaking him in the final 200 meters. Cavendish passed five-time Tour winner Bernard Hinault to be alone in second on the all-time list of stage winners. Eddy Merckx holds the record with 34 to Cavendishs 29.We were a little too far back, (teammate Bernhard Eisel) Bernie and I, going into that, Cavendish said, revealing the details of his sprint masterclass. I wanted Kittels wheel and I was fighting for it. I knew it would be the right thing to go early because it was slightly downhill, I put the bigger gear on again but I maxed out and should have put a bigger gear on. I held on and held Kittel off, did to him what hes done to me over the last three years.While Cavendish benefited from the great work of his teammates in his two previous stage wins, he was left by himself in the southwestern town of Montauban after his lead-out riders fell away.He sprinted very well today, Cavendish Dimension Data teammate Mark Renshaw said. Today we have been catastrophic, we were stuck on the left side of the road, it was impossible to get back to the front. I believe the track training he did made the big difference, he prevailed with his speed.Cavendish, who will be seeking the gold medal in the omnium ddiscipline at the Rio Olympics, has been combining training both on the road and track this season.dddddddddddd. It clearly helped him recover the burst of speed that had abandoned him over the past two seasons, defeating Kittel after a final kilometer covered at the average speed of 62.6 kilometers per hour.I knew if I got a good slingshot I could be going 3-4km/h faster than (Kittel) before he had time to react, so thats what I did and I was happy to hang on for the win, Cavendish said.The stage took the peloton from Arpajon-sur-Cere to Montauban in southwestern France on a 190.5-kilometer ride. Greg van Avermaet finished safely in the main pack and kept the yellow jersey going into Fridays first stage in the Pyrenees.On a very hot day, Yukiya Arashiro and Jan Barta attacked from the off. The peloton did not chase and they built a comfortable lead of 4 1/2 minutes.With temperatures as high as 36 degrees (98 F), the breakaway riders lead started to decrease after the first intermediate sprint when Frenchman Bryan Coquard topped rivals Michael Matthews, Peter Sagan and Kittel in their battle for the best sprinters green jersey.They were reined in with 22 kilometers left after Coquards Direct Energie team moved to the front of the pack to organize the chase. Late in the stage, a woman with a French flag tied around her neck rode on a white horse parallel to the peloton before the pace ramped up in the closing stages, with riders jostling frantically for prime position.On the eve of the first big mountain stage in the Pyrenees, Van Avermaet enjoyed a quiet day, well protected by his BMC teammates. Defending Tour champion Chris Froome stayed safely in the pack too.Van Avermaet holds a lead of 5:11 over rising French rider Julian Alaphilippe overall, with Spanish veteran Alejandro Valverde third, 5:13 behind.Froome is fifth, 5:17 behind, with his main rival Nairo Quintana in seventh place with the same time.The 162.5 kilometers in Stage 7 on Friday feature the grueling ascent of the Category 1 Col Aspin, a 12.5-kilometer climb at an average gradient of 6.5 percent, as well as a very technical descent to the finish line at the Lac de Payolle.
