ink they will reach those levels. Thunder and Storm is a battle of confidence and belief. I want the Storm to win and all my Thu Antworten

BALTIMORE -- Mookie Betts is at his best when facing the Baltimore Orioles -- especially in cozy Camden Yards.Feasting again on Baltimore pitching, Betts homered twice and drove in five runs to carry the resurgent Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 victory Tuesday night.Betts hit a three-run drive in the fifth inning and added a tiebreaking two-run shot in the seventh. Hes batting .426 with 12 homers and 18 RBI in 11 games against the Orioles this season.Exactly one-quarter of his 28 home runs this season have come in Baltimore, where the left-field foul line is a mere 333 feet from the plate. Yet the right-handed hitting Betts insists theres no plausible explanation for his success in this ballpark.Im going to continue to say I dont know why, he said. Im just trying to put good swings on it and enjoy it.Red Sox manager John Farrell certainly gets a kick out of watching it.He feels comfortable in this ballpark and obviously sees the ball well, Farrell said.Betts had three homers and eight RBI in a 16-2 win over Arizona on Sunday, so its not as if hes only picking on the Orioles.Im sure there are some numbers to dictate that its more us, manager Buck Showalter said, but hes been having that type of year against most everybody.The victory lifted Boston into a tie with Baltimore in the AL East, one game behind division-leading Toronto.We all are well aware of what is at stake, where we are in the standings and who is around us, Farrell said.The Red Sox were in first place on July 21, then lost 13 of 20 before their current streak of five wins in row.Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez had a no-hitter before leaving in the fifth inning with left hamstring tightness. The Red Sox hope they caught it early enough to keep the lefty in the rotation without missing a turn.Matt Barnes kept the Orioles hitless until Steve Pearce reached on a dribbler that got past the mound with one out in the seventh.Baltimore ended up batting around and tying the game at 3. After Matt Wieters hit a two-run single, Brad Ziegler (1-3) walked Adam Jones with the bases loaded before striking out Jonathan Schoop.The deadlock didnt last long. David Ortiz led off the eighth with a single against Brad Brach (7-2) and Betts lined an 0-1 pitch into the front row of seats beyond the left-field wall.Craig Kimbrel, the sixth Boston pitcher, worked a perfect ninth for his 21st save.Rodriguez and Yovani Gallardo were locked in a scoreless duel until the fifth. After Andrew Benintendi hit a leadoff double and Xander Bogaerts drew a one-out walk, Gallardo struck out Ortiz with a 2-2 fastball. Betts hit the next pitch over the left-field wall.PAPELBON RUMORFarrell confirmed that the team has had discussions with reliever Jonathan Papelbon, who was recently released by Washington. Papelbon pitched for Boston from 2005-11, primarily as a closer, but would not hold that same role if he returned, Farrell said.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: 3B Aaron Hill was scratched shortly before game time with right forearm tightness. ... RHP Steven Wright (right shoulder strain) will come off the DL next Tuesday. ... There is no timetable for RHP Koji Uehara (right pectoral strain) to throw off a mound, but he is doing better than anticipated, Farrell said. ... OF/C Blake Swihart underwent successful surgery on his left ankle Monday and is expected to be ready for spring training in 2017.Orioles: Showalter expects reliever Darren ODay (rotator cuff strain) to spend the minimum time on the DL and return on Aug. 27. ... LHP T.J. McFarland (inflamed left knee) gave up four hits and three runs in 1/3 inning for Class A Frederick in his first rehab game.UP NEXTRed Sox: LHP David Price (10-8. 4.29 ERA) starts in the finale of the series Wednesday night. Price has gone at least eight innings in eight of his 25 starts.Orioles: After the game, Showalter announced that RHP Dylan Bundy (6-3, 2.93) would start Wednesday in place of RHP Chris Tillman, whos experiencing shoulder discomfort and was moved back to Saturday vs. Houston.

Reigning champions Surrey Storm will take on Hertfordshire Mavericks in a repeat of last years Grand Final, while Manchester Thunder will face Team Bath, with both matches being shown live on Sky Sports.Loughborough Lightnings Agbeze, who will join our Sky Sports experts, has given her verdict on both matches and makes a prediction about the eventual title winners. Who are the favourites? Manchester Thunder finished top of the Superleague table People are billing Manchester Thunder as their favourites to win, but I dont necessarily think they will. I think the favourite tag is based on their form and the players they have in their squad. They have been building as the season has gone on and they are at the peak of their confidence. Other teams are probably thinking: we have been beaten by them, or we havent had the best games against them. They will go into the finals with a psychological edge and other teams will also have that on their minds, which could have an impact on how they perform.Who is the surprise package? Team Bath ended the season strongly ahead of their semi-final in Manchester Team Bath again have that confidence and belief, irrespective of who is on court. Their coach Anna Stembridge has instilled that in them. I just think they will surprise a few people. On any given day, Team Bath have got the potential to beat any of the teams in the semi-finals.Can Surrey keep their title? Surrey Storm are two wins away from retaining the Superleague trophy They are the team that Im backing more. They have that good ability to analyse the opposition, even before they get to the game. Their analysis is really good and they know exactly what theyre doing. Their game plans change weekly and they know how to play as a team before they step on the court. It will be a case of whether they can perform to that game plan for a whole 60 minutes, or extra-time if it goes that way. Going on their performances this season, their consistency, I think Surrey can retain their title.Players to watchManchester Thunder: Laura Malcolm, who has been named as the vice-captain for England, is a really consistent performer. Shes so good on defence. Shes got even better this season and her driving attack is really good. Sometimes she plays centre and fits well into their system. Laura Malcolm has impressed the England selectors Hertfordshire Mavericks: Sophie Carter. She reads the game really well. Sophie is part of a strong overall team at Hertfordshire. Across the board, they all work so well together as a team, but if I had to pick out someone - it would be Sophie as he she is a key player for Mavericks. Sophie Carter (right) has proved her worth to Hertfordshire Mavericks Surrey Storm: Georgia Lees.dddddddddddd She doesnt usually start every game, but she always makes a big impact when she comes on. She plays similarly to Tamsin Greenway. I dont know if she naturally plays like Tamsin or whether Tamsin as a coach has rubbed off on her. Surrey Storms Georgia Lees is one of the exciting young talents in the Superleague Its just subtle things that she does. She does not do everything at 100 miles per hour. She will be stood next to a defender and then suddenly will appear on the circle edge. Her subtle movement and play is key. Lees was voted Player of the Match as her side defeated Team Northumbria 45-58. Team Bath: They again are a team that have a general collection of good, solid performers. I think Mia Ritchie has had a number of good performances, but Im going for Joanna Vann. She is a good, consistent player, who makes the connection between attack and defence. Ama Agbeze on Joanna Vann She is a good, consistent player, who makes the connection between attack and defence. She is very good defensively. Who will win the Superleague title? Coach Dan Ryan will be hoping to mastermind a title win for Manchester Thunder Im torn between Storm and Thunder. As I said, Bath on the day could be good, but I just dont think they will reach those levels. Thunder and Storm is a battle of confidence and belief. I want the Storm to win and all my Thunder friends are going to hate me, but I do think Thunder are going to pip them to the post. Their attack is really good, Ellie Cardwell is a really strong upcoming shooter, and the shooting is pretty consistent. Generally Manchesters attack is very hard to beat. It will be a competitive game, but Thunder will be the team in front at the end.
