MONTREAL -- Rachel Homans Canada team defeated Val Sweetings Alberta rink 8-6 to win a second consecutive Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Sunday night. Bernie Kosar Jersey . The Ottawa team of Homan, lead Lisa Weagle, second Alison Kreviazuk and third Emma Miskew, defended the Canadian womens curling championship they won last year in Kingston, Ont. At 13-0, they are the first since Linda Moores rink in 1985 to go undefeated at the tournament. Homan took early leads all week and did it again by posting three points in the second end, although Sweeting answered with a hit for two in the third. Sweeting was a tad strong on a raise in the fourth and Homan came around the right side to hit for two. Alberta got one back in the fifth. Canada was in trouble in the sixth when a Sweeting draw left Alberta with three stones near the button, but Homan scattered them with a hit to salvage one point. Sweeting drew for two in the seventh to close the gap to one point, only to see Homan pick off two Sweeting draws to score two in the eighth. A Sweeting bid for a double takeout fell short and the Alberta skip was forced to draw for one in the ninth, handing Homan the hammer and a two-point lead going into the final end. Canada ran them out of rocks to clinch the victory. Prime Minister Stephen Harper witnessed the win from the grandstands at the Maurice Richard Arena. He was wearing a Canadian Olympic team jacket and posing for pictures with fans between ends. Harper has been to the mens Brier, but a curling official said it was his first visit to the Scotties Manitobas Chelsea Carey won the bronze medal game 7-3 over Saskatchewans Stefanie Lawton. It offered some consolation for not reaching the final. "The disappointment doesnt go away, but you want to at least salvage what you can out of it," said Carey. "I dont agree with this even being a game. I never have. "The Page (playoff) system builds in a bronze medallist. But, as much as I disagree with the game, its nice to win a game to get there." Carey made two perfect draws to score two in the eighth end for a 4-3 lead. Lawton blanked the ninth and had the hammer going into the final end, but then disaster struck. Second Sherri Singler threw a flash, third Sherry Anderson hit a guard and soon there were five Manitoba stones ringing the button. Lawton tried to sneak in an angled raise with her last shot, but it couldnt get through and Carey got a steal of three. "It was worth a try,"said Lawton. "It was there...I had to stick it right on the nose. I couldnt roll off. But it was a bit too hard. We didnt leave ourselves in a great position to score one that end. "It would have been nice to finish with a medal, but Im proud of our girls. It was a great tournament for us. Its unfortunate how it ended." The winning team splits $25,500 and gets gold rings with a diamond, while the silver medallists get $15,500 plus a gold ring with a ruby. Careys squad gets $12,000 and a gold ring with an emerald. Because of her repeat win, the Homan teams diamonds will be twice the size of last year. Lawtons side gets $7,000. All 12 teams get $4,167 for wearing title sponsor crests. The winner usually gets $40,000 from the Own The Podium program, but in Olympic years that goes to the team that qualifies for the Winter Games. JC Tretter Jersey . Bostons bats exploded in Mondays opener, as David Ortiz belted a pair of two-run homers, Stephen Drew homered and drove in four runs and the Red Sox pummeled the Blue Jays, 14-1. Josh Gordon Jersey .Leicester won 25-21 in a heated European Rugby Champions Cup group match on Sunday.Toulon said on its website on Wednesday that it decided to open an investigation after Leicester complained about the behaviour of prop Martin Castrogiovanni and fullback Delon Armitage. http://www.brownsauthenticproshop.com/Youth-Shon-Coleman-Browns-Jersey/ . They have homered once every 27.3 at bats, which just happens to be the third best mark in the American League, albeit just 10 games into the season.ATLANTA -- Clevelands Danny Salazar was trying to match fellow rookie Alex Wood. The Indians struggled at the plate, however, and Salazars night ended after 77 pitches through four innings. "Were just in a position with him right now where, if he has long innings, we owe it to him and to the organization to keep an eye on him," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "Theres going to be a day when we can turn him loose and let that four turn into six or seven, but not right now." Salazar allowed Elliot Johnsons two-run triple in the second inning as Wood joined four other Atlanta pitchers in beating the Indians 2-0 on Tuesday night. Cleveland, despite holding the Braves to only three hits, was shut out for the eighth time this season. The Indians had won two straight and five of six. Salazar blamed himself for shaking off Carlos Santana in the second and throwing a fastball away to Johnson when the catcher wanted something off-speed. "I was a little bit disappointed in myself because I felt great tonight, but I couldnt find my release point," Salazar said. "Changeup, fastball, slider -- everything was up." The Braves have won two straight, improving the majors best record to 79-52. They have won 14 of 17 at Turner Field and own baseballs home mark at 45-18. Wood (3-2) allowed five hits, a career-high four walks and struck out five in 5 2-3 innings. Hes 3-0 with a 1.46 ERA in his past six starts. Salazar (1-2) gave up three hits, two runs and two walks in four innings. The right-hander struck out three. Closer Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth to earn his 42nd save, most in the majors, in 45 chances. He struck out Drew Stubbs and retired pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Bourn on groundouts. Atlanta went up 2-0 in the second when Brian McCann walked with one out, advanced to third on Joey Terdoslavichs single to right field, and both runners scored when Johnson tripled over Drew Stubbs in fronnt of the wall in right field. Derrick Kindred Jersey. "It hit off the wall, and he still almost caught the thing," Johnson said. "So obviously Im glad it went our way, we got that cushion for Woody and he took it the rest of the way." Wood issued his four walks in the first three innings, but he worked around Asdrubal Cabreras leadoff double in the fourth and Kipnis two-out double in the fifth. A two-out single by Michael Brantley chased Wood in the sixth. The next Atlanta pitcher, Luis Ayala, walked Stubbs, the only batter he faced, but Scott Downs ended the threat by striking out pinch-hitter Jason Giambi. Cabrera went 3 for 4 and was the only batter with more than one hit, but Johnson drove in the games only runs. Bourn, who filled the same roles for 208 games during the previous 1 1/2 seasons with Atlanta, credited Wood with keeping Cleveland batters off balance. "He kept attacking the zone," Bourn said after going 1 for 5 with two strikeouts. "It was our first game against him and he dominated us pretty much. But there aint no pretty much -- he dominated us. We got zero runs off him. Weve got to find a way to put some runs on the board and help our pitchers out." Notes: Clevelands bullpen has a 2.65 ERA over its past 43 games. ... Atlanta had its fewest hits in a victory since getting three on July 19, 2012, against San Francisco. ... Braves RF Jason Heyward rejoined the team for the first time since getting hit by Mets pitcher Jonathon Niese last Wednesday, breaking the right side of his jaw with a 90-mph fastball. Heyward hopes to return for the playoffs. ... Atlanta RHP Brandon Beachy was in the clubhouse one day after learning theres no structural damage in his surgically repaired elbow. Beachy, who has missed 109 games over the past two years, hopes to return by the end of next month. ... The Indians and Braves met for the first time since 2007 and for the first time at Turner Field since 2004.
