Australia 106 (Warner 42, D Perera 4-29, Herath 4-35) and 25 for 3 (Warner 22*, Smith 1*) need another 388 runs to beat Sri Lanka 281 and 237 (D Perera 64, Starc 6-50)Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsThe second day in Galle finished as it started: with Steven Smith at the crease facing Dilruwan Perera. Air Max Scontatissime . Australia would take that result if it meant a captains innings, a double-century to drag his side back into the series. The reality was a world away from that, for in between Perera had taken five wickets and scored a half-century, Rangana Herath had claimed a hat-trick, 21 wickets had tumbled, and Australia had collapsed to their lowest ever Test total against Sri Lanka.This was the day on which Sri Lanka made certain that they would lift the Warne-Muralitharan Trophy for the first time. It was not yet struck in 1999, the only other occasion on which they beat Australia in a series. Indeed, that was the only other occasion on which they beat Australia in a Test. In the first 33 years of Test cricket between the two countries, Sri Lanka won just a single game. They will now do so twice in a fortnight.Australia were set 413 for victory, which would be the third-highest successful chase in Test history. Gettable, perhaps, for an in-form batting unit on a pitch to their liking, if everything fell their way. But this Australian outfit was demolished in the first innings for 106, on a turning surface against a quality spin attack. Australia have as much chance of winning this Test as they do of winning Olympic gold in baseball. And no, baseball is no longer on the Olympic roster.By stumps, Australia were already 25 for 3 in their chase. Joe Burns had driven a catch to cover off Herath in the first over. Nightwatchman Nathan Lyon had poked a catch to silly point off Perera. And next ball, Usman Khawaja had watched an arm ball from Perera crash into his stumps. Dazed and confused, Khawaja offered no shot. His dismissal was emblematic of the day: Australia had no clue whether each ball from a Sri Lanka spinner would turn or not.And so at the close of play, Smith walked off on 1, with David Warner on 22, and a Sri Lankan victory inside three days appeared all but certain. The afternoon consisted largely of Sri Lankas batsmen frustrating Australia, growing their lead and humiliating their visitors further. Herath and Perera, who tormented Australia with the ball at either end of the day, scored nearly as many runs between them as Australia did in the first innings.The story of this day was the first session, in which Australia lost eight wickets for 52 runs. The cricket felt like it was played in fast-forward and at times the action was so comical that the Benny Hill theme would have been appropriate. The pitch was turning, but it was far from a poor surface. But it was as if Australias batsmen had never seen spinners before. They simply wondered at this mysterious slow form of bowling.Sri Lankas spinners attacked the stumps and built persistent pressure. Herath turned some and skidded others on. So did Perera. Lakshan Sandakan didnt, but that was only because all the work was done already. Such was the annihilation that he came on only to collect the final wicket, and finished with 1 for 0 from two deliveries.Resuming at 54 for 2, Australia failed to survive even 20 overs of the days play. Australias 106 was their lowest total ever against Sri Lanka, and their lowest total in Asia for nearly 12 years, since they were skittled on a Mumbai dustbowl for 93 back in 2004. Herath finished with 4 for 35 and Perera with 4 for 29.Khawaja fell in the third over of the day when he missed an arm ball from Perera and was bowled for 11 - at least he played at this one - and Smith departed next over when he played back and tried to cut a slider from Herath. He too was bowled. So much for the play straight mantra Australia had tried to instil on this tour.Then came Heraths hat-trick: Adam Voges drove on the up to cover, Peter Nevill was trapped lbw by another slider, and Mitchell Starc completed the trio when he leaned forward and was hit on the pad first ball. Starc was given not out but Angelo Mathews asked for a review, out of nothing but hope. He was as surprised as anyone that the not-out decision was overturned.Only one other Sri Lankan had ever taken a Test hat-trick: Nuwan Zoysa, who achieved the feat against Zimbabwe in Harare in 1999-2000. Heraths wickets left Australia at 80 for 7 and in serious danger of failing to reach triple figures. In fact, they still needed two runs to avoid the follow-on, which appeared by no means a certainty.They did scrape past that mark but soon Lyon was caught in close off Perera and Josh Hazlewood edged to slip off the same bowler. Mitchell Marsh, at the other end while so much carnage was unfolding around him, slammed a couple of sixes to push the score past 100, but was caught at long-off when he tried for another off Sandakans second ball.Sri Lanka lost three wickets of their own before lunch - 11 wickets fell in the session - but already their lead was healthy. Perhaps their only concern at the moment is the consistent failure of their openers, for again Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne failed to reach double figures. Karunaratne was the first of six wickets for Mitchell Starc, who deserves commendation for his hard work, gaining rewards through reverse swing, speed and persistence.Starc finished with match figures of 11 for 94, the finest by any Australian in Sri Lanka, and second only to Mohammad Asif for visiting fast bowlers in the country. Not since Geoff Dymock claimed 12 against India in Kanpur in 1979 had an Australian fast bowler been so successful in a Test match in Asia.But where Sri Lankas spinners were important, Australias were impotent. Out of desperation, Lyon resorted to bowling legbreaks as Sri Lankas innings wore on, and Jon Holland was treated with the disdain Sri Lankas batsmen might dish up to a bowler from Holland. Eventually Australia bowled the Sri Lankans out for 237. The figure was almost irrelevant, though a complete Sri Lankan capitulation might almost have made a game of it.Instead, Kusal Perera contributed 35, Mathews scored a brisk 47, Dilruwan Perera compiled 64, Herath chipped in with 26, and Dhananjaya de Silva managed 34. It was enough to set Australia 400 plus. It was enough, after Australias morning collapse, to decide the series. Scarpe Air Max Scontate . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. Nike Air Max Plus Scontate . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. http://www.airmaxoutletscontate.it/max-tn-scarpe-scontate.html . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. CHICAGO -- Chris Archer prides himself on his durability. Thats why he didnt back out of his last start of the season, despite the prospect of becoming the majors first 20-game loser since 2003.The result was a confidence-boosting performance that got him to his goal of 200 innings.Archer overcame a shaky seventh inning to avoid the dubious 20-loss milestone and lead the Tampa Bay Rays past the Chicago White Sox, 5-3 on Thursday night.Archer (9-19) allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings to help the Rays snap a six-game skid and leave Detroits Mike Maroth as the only pitcher to lose 20 games this century.More than anything else, Im trying to make every start and Im trying to pitch 200 innings. Thats my No. 1 priority, Archer said. The first half of the season was up and down, so to accomplish that feat was really nice for me, personally.Mikie Mahtook hit a solo homer in the fourth off Jose Quintana (13-12) and doubled and scored in a three-run seventh off Chicagos shaky bullpen.Quintana allowed two runs and five hits over six innings for the White Sox, whose five-game winning streak ended despite Carlos Sanchezs two-out, two-run homer in the seventh.Chicago clinched its fourth consecutive losing season under manager Robin Ventura, whose future with the team is uncertain. And Quintana has been mentioned as a candidate to be traded if the White Sox decide to rebuild.I dont have control about that, Quintana said. I want to be here for a long time.Archer got the first two outs of the seventh, but a walk, Sanchezs homer and Leury Garcias double ended his night. With rain starting to fall, Brad Boxberger got Adam Eaton to ground out with the tying run on.Erasmo Ramirez worked the eighth amid a steady rain before the umpires called for the tarp. After a 35-minute delay, Alex Colome got the final three outs for his 36th save.Eatons groundout to lead off the sixth put Archer over 200 innings for the second consecutive season. But its been nothing like 2015, when Archer was an All-Star and fifth in the Cy Young Award voting.While Archer has pitched better in the second half, hes gotten little support. Air Max Saldi Zalando. Tampa Bay scored two or fewer runs in 15 of his 19 losses, leaving him one loss shy of being the second pitcher in 36 years to lose 20.Honestly, I never let those types of things creep into my mind. Its pointless to think about negatives, Archer said. Im just glad I dont have to answer the question.Archers five strikeouts gave him 233, second in the AL behind Detroits Justin Verlander. He finished with eight consecutive quality starts and a 4.02 ERA.Alexei Ramirezs RBI single against his former team in the second ended Tampa Bays 41-inning streak of not holding a lead.Ramirez also singled and scored in the seventh as the Rays got to relievers Juan Minaya and Dan Jennings to build a 5-1 lead and hold on for their 66th win.I learned a lot about myself and I think thats the biggest thing, Archer said. You take this season and you grow from it. I think all of us starters are going to be poised for much more success next year.TRAINERS ROOMRays: In his second game back from a bruised hand, CF Kevin Kiermaier went 3 for 5 and made a running catch of Sanchezs drive with a runner on to end the game.White Sox: 2B Tyler Saladino (back) wont play again this season. Weve got to figure out a way to get him right before he heads home, Ventura said.20-LOSS CLUBMaroth went 9-21 for the 2003 Tigers, who finished 43-119. Before that, Oaklands Brian Kingman in 1980 was the last to lose 20.SUNDAY SALEVentura had hinted that ace Chris Sales season was over after Tuesdays victory. That changed when the left-hander asked to start Sundays season finale against Minnesota.I think thats a good testament to finishing out the year and doing it right, Ventura said.UP NEXTRays: Three games at NL West champion Texas to close the season. RHP Matt Andriese (8-7, 4.34 ERA) faces Rangers RHP Yu Darvish (6-5, 3.53) on Friday night.White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon (8-10, 4.08) starts Friday night against last-place Minnesota and RHP Tyler Duffey (9-11, 6.18).
