If its possible, Besart Berisha is more motivated than usual.The Melbourne Victory striker is full of fire as he heads back to his first A-League home in Friday nights A-League season opener.The manner of Victorys finals exit last year - which courtesy of two late Roar goals at Suncorp Stadium - still rankles the Albanian.It is hard to get over, he tells AAP.Brisbane had no chance against us. We were the better team.Youre so close to go to the semi finals and you lead by 1-0 with four minutes to go and they get two goals.I was very emotional because we should win the game.Berishas anguished face became the iconic image of the night, showing the pain of a defeat that ended their title defence.The 31-year-old said he was grateful to league chiefs for the chance to vindicate, as he sees it, that loss.Its the best draw, he said.We have a great team this year and my belief its good to have the hardest games in first to get into the league straight away.Then the derby straight after and then the champions Adelaide, thats great.As he begins a third season with Victory, the tempestuous striker said coach Kevin Muscat believed he had the condition to suit his ambitions.Im in the best shape Ive ever been in, this is what Kevin tells me, he said.This is my sixth year after five years of proving I can score goals every year.Now people know me so I have to be quicker, stronger, better.

Dres Danijel Subasic .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. WASHINGTON -- A pair of 22-year-old rookies each making their third start will face off when the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves meet Saturday night in the second of three games.Right hander Rob Whalen (1-0, 5.73 ERA) will try to continue Atlantas impressive stretch while Washington counters with right hander Reynaldo Lopez (0-1, 9.35 ERA). Both will be facing their opponent for the first time.The Braves (44-72) snapped a 14-game losing streak at Nationals Park with an 8-5 win on Friday night, handing Stephen Strasburg just his third loss of the season.Atlanta has won 7 of its last 10 games and improved to 5-3 on their current road trip. Looking at a larger sample, the Braves are 26-26 in their past 52 games.Weve been playing good for I think the last 55, 60 games, first baseman Freddie Freeman said. Obviously we got off to a pretty rough start the first couple of months, but this team has really turned it around the last two months and were trying to end strong.With 12 games left against the Nationals, Freeman might have a lot to say about that.After struggling against them during the first weeks of the season, he resumed his history of success versus the Nationals on Friday, going 2-for-3 with a three-run homer, RBI double, a walk and a hit-by-pitch.It was too much Freddie Freeman, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said.In 92 career games against the Nationals, hes hitting .327 with 26 doubles, 11 homers and 49 RBI.The Atlanta offense as a whole continued its recent surge with Anthony Recker adding a two-run homer and Jace Peterson a solo shot.Our offense is kind of spread out lateely, manager Brian Snitker said.dddddddddddd With Matt (Kemp in the lineup) and Erick (Aybar) hitting up at number 2, it kind of lengthens our offense and gives us a little more sock down at the bottom.Over their last 17 games, the Braves are hitting .286 with 54 extra-base hits (34 doubles, three triples and 17 home runs) and 80 runs scored.First-place Washington (67-47) fell to 1/3 without Bryce Harper, whose neck stiffness continues to keep him out of the lineup.Nationals GM Mike Rizzo told reporters that a story Friday by Sports Illustrateds Tom Verducci reporting that Harper has been playing through a right shoulder injury for the past two months is wrong and that Harper has a stiff neck.Jayson Werths RBI-double extended his on-base streak to 41 games Friday night, while Anthony Rendon (home run) and Trea Turner (three hits) stayed hot.Since July 16, Rendon is hitting .333 (26 for 78) with nine doubles, five homers, 17 RBI and 12 runs scored in 21 games. Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Turner has hit safely in 17 of 22 games since the All-Star break, raising his average to .301.On Friday as Washington was beginning a streak of 20 games in 20 days, Baker used four relievers after Strasburg threw 103 pitches in 5 1/3 innings while allowing six runs.You dont want to start a 20-in-a-row streak getting deep in your bullpen because that could domino effect tomorrow and the next day and the next day, Baker said. Thats why we tried to stick with him as long as we could.
