MADRID -- Atletico Madrid reached the knockout stage of the Champions League after Antoine Griezmann pounced in stoppage time to score his second goal of the night and seal a dramatic 2-1 victory over Russian side Rostov on Tuesday. Clyde Drexler USA Jersey .Griezmann grabbed the winner for last seasons runners-up when a hopeful long pass was headed on by a Rostov defender, and the France forward managed to toe the ball into the net off the underside of the crossbar.The referee awarded the goal after speaking to his linesman, apparently to make sure the ball was headed back by a Rostov player, which meant Griezmann was not off-side when he made contact.Atletico now leads Group D with a maximum 12 points from four games.Bayern Munich has nine points after beating PSV Eindhoven 2-1 in the other group match. Rostov and PSV both have one point.Griezmanns opening goal in the 28th-minute was an acrobatic beauty. And it too came from an unintentional assist by a Rostov player.Seeing Yannick Carrascos pass headed back toward the goal by a defender, the striker pivoted in the air and used his left shin to lift the ball over goalkeeper Soslan Dzhanaez.Rostov equalized two minutes later through Sardar Azmoun and the Champions League debutant was clinging on to the point despite being pinned down for the entire second half until Griezmanns late strike.They made it tough for us, but the most important thing is that we got the three points, Griezmann said. We are top of the group and have two games left. We want to finish as group leaders.Griezmann, who was critical to Atleticos run to last seasons final, took his overall goal tally to eight for this campaign. The two goals were his first in this seasons Champions League.The Rostov goal that ruined goalkeeper Jan Oblaks run of three clean sheets in Europe was the result of two errors- first a bad pass, followed by poor marking -- that are uncharacteristic of a team coached by Diego Simeone.But Simeones criticism was only for his own coaching decisions, without specifying his mistakes.As coach, I didnt have a good game, Simeone said. My players did. I made bad decisions, but my players pulled it out the best way possible, with pride.--- This story has been corrected to show the last name of the Rostov scorer is Azmoun, not Armoun. Chris Mullin USA Jersey . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. RIO DE JANEIRO -- In the unpredictable sport of BMX cycling, where races last just about 40 seconds, a strong start means a lot.Get to the front after the first turn, and theres a good chance a rider will be able to avoid the kind of wreck-filled chaos that marked the action in the mens quarterfinal round at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics on a breezy afternoon.Its always the key, Australias Sam Willoughby said, but especially ... when its windy like this and theres carnage out there.An early lead will come in handy for riders in the mens and womens semifinals beginning Friday afternoon, with the medal races later in the day.Willoughby is on a roll headed into the semis after winning all three of his heats in the quarters on Thursday . Australian teammate Anthony Dean also had a strong quarterfinal round, while the United States and the Netherlands each sent all three of their cyclists into the mens semis.We dont have lanes and its a full-contact sport, so the start is very important, Willoughby, the 2012 silver medalist, said this week. To get out front at the first corner, you can run your own race from there and create your own destiny a bit.Its tough enough just to have a chance to lead the pack after the first turn.The action begins with cyclists released from a starting gate at the top of a ramp three stories tall. They pedal furiously down the ramp and pick up speed to jump hills and maneuver through turns on the roughly quarter mile--long course. Russell Westbrook Team USA Jersey. .S. rider Alise Post said she thinks riders reach a speed of 35 to 40 mph just a few seconds into the race. Theres no suspension on the bikes, either.Its very demanding for sure, Post said.The series of jumps after the starting ramp leads into the wide first turn. Inside position is important. Stay out in front and there is a greater likelihood that a rider wont get caught up in the pack of cyclists desperately trying to catch up.And this all might happen in a span of 10 seconds, maybe less.The alternative is to scramble from behind, which isnt uncommon, though less desirable.A contenders day can end in a hurry. In the quarterfinals on Thursday, two-time gold medalist Maris Strombergs barely missed the cut after getting set back from a crash in his first heat that also involved Britains Liam Phillips. Joris Daudet of France, the reigning world champion, also got knocked out after crashing.Theres still 800 feet of track that you cant mess up on ... because seven guys will pass you, no problem, U.S. rider Nic Long said. Its never easy. But yeah, winning to the first jump, the winning to the second jump, then winning the first turn, makes winning to the finish line that much easier.---Online:AP Summer Games: http://summergames.ap.org/---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
