Tenth wicketLarry Gomes and Malcolm Marshall v England, Leeds, 1984 Memorable tail-end partnerships normally occupy a reasonable amount of time. Like Michael Holding and Larry Gomes - 82 for the eighth wicket in this very game - pulling West Indies out from 206 for 7 in reply to Englands 270. But that ones not the vintage tail-end stand from this game. Our pick produced only 12 runs, took 16 minutes, and had Malcolm Marshall in it, skipping out to the ground, tossing back his inner glove, bat in his right hand, left in plaster. He had broken the hand, but Gomes was on 96 and it is what team men did. Marshall faced eight balls, taking his fractured top hand off the blade on impact. There was one swish, one balletic back-foot open-face glide for four. He sprinted a double, Gomes got his century, and at 302, Marshall was out. That should have served warning. He returned to clean up England with 7 for 53, bowling at top pace, action unblemished. Broken hand or not, Maco made it his match.Eighth wicketOmari Banks and Vasbert Drakes v Australia, St Johns, 2003 In the last West Indies-Australia Test played at the Old Rec, the new firm of Banks and Drakes made sure their team had the final word. Australia had cleaned out the previous three Tests, and after a dead-heat first innings in a game gone crazy, set West Indies 418 to win. On day four, fearsome sledging and bitter skirmishes turned the air blue. At close West Indies needed 47 with four in hand. There was the sanity of Shivnarine Chanderpaul, nailed to the crease, finger broken, batting on 103. But when he left early on the final day, Brett Lee and Jason Gillespies rockets could have blown the house down. Banks and Drakes, though, were having none of it. They rode out the storm and preferred counter-attack over hunkering down. Flowing cover drives, slashes, edges, and a six off the spinner. In about 90 minutes, Banks and Drakes combined perfectly to pull off the highest successful chase in Test history.Ninth wicketChaminda Vaas and Nuwan Kulasekara v England, Lords, 2006 In only their second three-Test series in England, Sri Lankas tail was made to bat for their teams life. Following on after Englands 551, their top six were gone by the end of day four, Sri Lanka leading by only 22. By lunch on day five, two more had fallen. England had time to bowl the opposition out, push for a win and beat the rain. At 421 for 8, Vaas, a very capable No. 9, and Kulasekara, a hitter of timing and courage, came together and stayed together for more than 45 overs. Their partnership was stop-start because of the rain - Vaas getting behind the line and Kulasekara wading in at the first sign of spin. It took Vaas more than four hours for his 50 (187 balls, seven fours) and Kulasekaras 64 (189 minutes, 133 balls, seven fours, two sixes) is his only Test fifty to date. The partnership, 105, occupied time, stretched the lead to safety and signalled Sri Lankas fighting intentions for the summer.Tenth wicketHarbhajan Singh and Ashish Nehra v Zimbabwe, Bulawayo, 2001 From a match long forgotten, a partnership of only 38. But like its protagonists, unpredictable and eccentric. India, looking for their first Test win outside the subcontinent in 15 years, needed to stretch the first innings as far away as possible from Zimbabwes 173. Harbhajan, high-risk and creative in his strokeplay, had put up 72 with Sameer Dighe for the eighth. But when Nehra, the most uncoordinated of batsmen, arrived, an early end beckoned. Instead, the pair produced a pantomime of synchronicity - sword-waving Harbhajan, Nehra of Sparta, defending, fending and swaying. As tea approached, Harbhajan could be heard over the stump mike egging on his partner. Bahut achcha, shabaash, thodi der mein andar jaake chai peeyenge. (Well played, keep going, in a little while well go in and have some tea.) The lead was stretched to 145 - 110 coming from the eighth and tenth wickets. Victory in Bulawayo didnt exactly mark the onset of world domination, but it was for India the start of a decade in which the ghosts of travels past could be driven away. Ninth wicketJohn Bracewell and Derek Stirling v England, Nottingham, 1986 It was the summer of the little guys - or at least the little guys of that era. Indias second series win in England in over 50 years of trying was followed by a Kiwi knockout, thanks to the bowler who scored a century. Not Richard Hadlee, who repeatedly eviscerated the English, nor their allrounder captain Jeremy Coney, but offspinner and committed clouter John Bracewell. He came in to bat when New Zealand trailed by 17 and by the time Stirling came in, Bracewell was warmed up. Greater woe was heaped on England as the two men put on 65 for the ninth. Bracewell needed the No. 11, Willie Watson, to see him past his century and New Zealand led by 157 on the first innings. When England batted, Bracewell got Graham Gooch, David Gower and Bill Athey, and Stirling picked up Derek Pringle and Greg Thomas. New Zealand won the Test and their first series in England.

Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. http://www.spainsoccerpro.com/Pepe-Reina-Spain-Jersey/ .

A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center. The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- First-year Syracuse coach Dino Babers got the signature win he was looking for.The biggest thing about this win is that any time you take over a program you trying to get everybody to buy in, youre trying to get everybody to work as one, Babers said after the Orange beat No. 17 Virginia Tech 31-17 on Saturday for their first victory over a ranked opponent since 2012.No matter how hard everybody wants to do that, theres always the naysayers, theres always the ones who say, `Maybe we should be doing it the way the old people, the old team did or the old coaches did it. Its always that way until you get that one win that solidifies you, that brings you together, that hardship that brings the family closer together. Thats what happened today. Were now family.The Orange offense rolled up 561 yards on the nations third-ranked defense, converted four of five fourth-down opportunities, and one that didnt fold when the Hokies came back to tie it.A lot of it comes down to looking at the structure of defenses, were looking at situations. Were not reckless, Babers said. We dont just go out on fourth down and say were gambling. Thats not what we do.Uncharacteristically, Syracuse scored 14 straight points after the Hokies rallied. Under similar scenarios this season, the bottom would have fallen out. Not this timeWe went back to the things that worked, Babers said. We knew they were going to be pressing, were just playing. We wanted to get into the fourth quarter where we had a chance to win the game.The key was quarterback Eric Dungey, who accounted for 417 yards and two touchdowns as Syracuse (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat No. 17 Virginia Tech (4-2, 2-1 ACC) 31-17 on Saturday for its first victory over a ranked opponent since 2012.Dungey was 28 of 53 for 311 yards and ran for a career-high 106 yards. Knocked out of the game for one play, Dungey became the Orange player to throw for 300 yards and run for 100 yards in a single game.He scored on a 1-yard sneak to give the Orange a 24-17 lead with 7:56 to go, and hit Erv Phillips on a 58-yard scoring play in the first quarter.Coach (Sean) Lewis and Coach Babers did a good job all week. They helped to put us in situations to put some points up, Dungey said.The Orange also featured a defense that played its most inspired game of the year, holding the Hokies to its lowest output of the season. Coming into Saturdays game off a 34-3 win over North Carolina, Virginia Tech had averagedd 39.dddddddddddd.4 points per game, third in the ACC and 25th nationally.For the defense, all week coach has been saying, `Why not us? This week he kept drilling in us, `Why cant we be great? I felt the guys really took that to heart and we came out feeling like we had nothing to lose, said defensive lineman Dejon Wilson, who recovered a fumble by Hokies quarterback Jerod Evans.As big a win as it was for the Orange, the game was a huge disappointment to the Hokies, whose head coach blamed himself for the upset.I mean they beat us in all three phases of the game, Justin Fuente said. That falls on me.And now the Hokies have to turn around and play Miami in just five days.With this outcome, the challenges of playing in a short week, youve got to be ready, Fuente said.Syracuse was more than ready Saturday.Before the game we felt like we needed to come out with a chip on our shoulder, said running back Dontae Strickland, who connected with Brisly Estime for an 84-yard touchdown. Even though we were the underdogs, we did that from the jump and you saw what happened.The Hokies tied it at 17 with 13:53 to go in regulation on Evans 10-yard pass to Bucky Hodges and a 2-point conversion catch by Chris Cunningham, but Dungey took over after that.SITTING OUT: Syracuse starting defensive end Kendall Coleman sat out the first half as the result of a targeting penalty against Wake Forest a week ago. Coleman, a true freshman who had started every game, was penalized for targeting quarterback John Wolford in the fourth quarter of a 28-9 loss.POLL IMPLICATIONS: Virginia Tech will plummet after the upset loss, possibly out of the Top 25 .THE TAKEAWAY:Virginia Tech: The Hokies had only allowed 661 yards through the air in their first five games. Syracuse had 405. Virginia Tech had only allowed 20 points combined in its previous three games. The Hokies averaged 39.4 points entering the game.Syracuse: Three Syracuse players completed passes in the first half: Dungey, Strickland and Estime.Dungey was not sacked in the first half but was knocked out of the game for one play on a hit by free safety Mook Reynolds. Zack Mahoney replaced him. Philips had 11 receptions, Estime eight, Steven Ishmael six and Etta-Tawo five.UP NEXT:Virginia Tech: The Hokies host Miami on Thursday night.Syracuse: The Orange travel to Boston College next Saturday.
