Australian Matt Wilkinsons world surfing title hopes received a boost as he narrowly survived a do-or-die second-round battle at the Tahiti Pro.Championship leader Wilkinson was the first in the water on day two and produced two stellar rides to advance out of his high-quality heat against qualifier Hira Teriinatoofa.In relatively small one-metre waves at the Teahupoo break, Wilkinsons rides of 8.00 and 6.17 were enough to ensure a 0.67-point victory.Going in this morning, I knew it was small and slow, but when they come, there are still some beautiful tubes, Wilkinson said.I wanted to put some pressure on him. I got that one set that sealed the deal, so I am stoked.Hell now attempt to advance out of the third round for just second time in seven visits to Teahupoo when he again takes on 2008 Tahiti winner and qualifier Bruno Santos of Brazil, who beat him in round one.Fellow title contender and defending world champion Adriano de Souza wont advance though, after he was beaten by Brazilian Alex Ribeiro in a low-scoring heat.Brazils Felipe Toledo was another big-name casualty on the second day of competition, beaten by compatriot Jason Andrew, as he struggled to a combined score of just 6.63.The news was good for Australia though, with Julian Wilson and Matt Banting each winning through the sudden-death second round.Wilson survived a late scare from fellow Australian Ryan Callinan, whose last-ditch ride of 5.33 fell just 0.34 points short of forcing an upset.Former world champion Joel Parkinson and Josh Kerr also won through in all-Australian heats against youngster Jack Freestone and Stuart Kennedy respectively.It is hard going against Jack [Freestone] because I watched him grow up and climb through the ranks, Parkinson said.He is someone who I hope to pass the baton to, push and watch him do well.Davey Cathels was the only other Australian not to advance to the third round, narrowly beaten by Nat Young of the USA.Adrian Buchan, Adam Melling and Kai Otton had previously qualified for the third round after winning their first-round heats on the opening day.

Steelers Jerseys Supply .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win.MILWAUKEE -- Ryan Braun is back, and Aramis Ramirez is out again. Its been that kind of season so far for the Milwaukee Brewers. Braun was activated from the disabled list on Monday after he was sidelined for a month with a bruised right thumb. While the 2011 NL MVP returned to the active roster, the Brewers decided to put Ramirez on the DL again with a nagging left knee injury. "Its exciting more than it is a relief," Braun said. "Being on the DL is not something I enjoyed. Definitely made me appreciate the last six years having never spent time on the DL because its just a lot of long, boring days. I excited to be back. I excited to be able to compete again and be able to contribute, hopefully contribute to some better baseball." Milwaukee dropped two of three against the New York Mets over the weekend and is last in the top-heavy NL Central. The parade of injuries for the Brewers started in spring training, and a shaky bullpen and rotation have played a prominent role in their decline. Braun is batting .304 with nine homers and 36 RBIs in 57 games this season. He was not in the lineup for the opener of a three-game series against Cincinnati, but he planned to test his hand again in batting practice and coulld be available to pinch-hit.dddddddddddd "Its not close to 100 per cent, but we dont expect it to be close to 100 per cent all year," Braun said. "So as long as its good enough, Im thrilled about that." Ramirez sprained his left knee on April 5 and was placed on the DL the next day. He was sidelined for a month, but the injury has lingered. He is batting .271 with five homers and 26 RBIs in 54 games. The move for Ramirez is retroactive to Sunday. Putting the third baseman on the DL right now allows the Brewers to use the upcoming All-Star game to minimize the amount of missed games for the slugger. Logan Schafer got the start in left field against Cincinnati, and former Reds prospect Juan Francisco was at third for Milwaukee. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke also said before the game that right-hander Wily Peralta remains in line to start on Tuesday. Peralta was forced to leave his last outing in the sixth inning on Tuesday night at Washington due to a strained left hamstring. "No restrictions," Roenicke said. "Its all going to be dictated on whats happening. If he feels something, then, obviously, well address that. As far as pitches and things, theres no restrictions."
