Briefs: Horner edges Liepheimer in Wednesday’s Tour stage

By
May 18, 2011 |

SAN JOSE — With a quick uphill burst, Chris Horner of Bend, Ore., rode away from teammate Levi Leipheimer in the final two miles and pedaled into the race lead at the Tour of California on Wednesday.

Horner (RadioShack), who last year finished 10th in the Tour de France as the top American, completed the 81.8-mile Livermore to San Jose road race in 3 hours, 27 minutes and 51 seconds.

Andy Schleck (Leopard-Trek) of Luxembourg, the 2009 and 2010 Tour de France runner-up, finished second, 1 minute and 15 seconds behind.

Rory Sutherland (United Healthcare) of Australia was third, just behind Schleck, and Davis’ Paul Mach (Bissell) was 53rd on Wednesday.

Horner, who finished fourth overall last year in the Tour of California, leads the seven-day race by 1:15 over Leipheimer of Santa Rosa, the three-time race winner.

Tom Danielson (Garmin-Cervelo) of Boulder, Colo., is third overall, trailing by 1:22.

Leipheimer, who has won five stages of the event, all time trials, finished fourth in the stage, also trailing by 1:15.

Ross’ HR in the ninth beats L.A.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cody Ross hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the ninth inning, and the San Francisco Giants rebounded from the Dodgers’ three-run rally in the eighth for an 8-5 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

Juan Uribe hit a two-run double and scored the tying run on James Loney’s single during the Dodgers’ dramatic two-out rally in the eighth against Giants closer Brian Wilson (4-1).

Ross then pulled a pitch by Lance Cormier (0-1) inside the left-field pole for just his third homer of the season for the first-place Giants.

San Francisco has won eight of 11 — losing its previous two in Colorado and briefly falling behind the Rockies in the NL West standings.

Miguel Tejada drove in two runs in the Giants’ highest-scoring performance since April 18. San Francisco scored more than four runs for the first time in two weeks while beating its biggest rivals for the third straight time.

Matt Kemp homered for the Dodgers, who have lost four of five.

The Dodgers’ rally in the eighth against Wilson, who had converted 12 straight save opportunities, erased a stellar start by Matt Cain, who allowed three hits while pitching into the eighth inning.

Barton’s miscue costs A’s against Twins

OAKLAND (AP) — First baseman Daric Barton’s first error in 25 games put Oakland in a bind in the 10th inning. His decision to cut off Conor Jackson’s throw home two batters later hurt the Athletics even more.

Trevor Plouffe hit a sacrifice fly for his season-high third RBI, and Delmon Young scored easily when Jackson’s throw was stopped by Barton near first base, helping the Minnesota Twins beat the A’s 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Young singled to open the inning and advanced to third when Barton threw Alexi Casilla’s bunt into the outfield. After Denard Span grounded out, Plouffe hit a fly ball to right field off Brian Fuentes (1-4).

Barton just missed a chance to redeem himself in the bottom of the inning, but his fly to deep right field was caught on the warning track by Minnesota’s Michael Cuddyer.

Kevin Kouzmanoff drove in two runs and Hideki Matsui added an RBI single for the A’s, who fell a game behind Texas at the top of the AL West.
