OBERHOF, Germany -- Emil Hegle Svendsen of Norway won the mens pursuit at a biathlon World Cup for his second win in two days, taking advantage of Ole Einar Bjoerndalens mistakes at the final shooting station on Saturday. Svendsen missed only one target and completed the 12.5-kilometre race in 34 minutes 47.7 seconds, beating his compatriot Bjoerndalen by 35.6 seconds. The 39-year-old Bjoerndalen -- a six-time Olympic champion and the sports all-time great -- led going into the final shoot but two missed targets. That allowed Svendsen, who beat his teammate by 0.4 seconds in Fridays sprint, to claim his 33rd career World Cup win. "I did not come here thinking that I could win two times," Svendsen said. Overall World Cup leader Martin Fourcade of France was third, exactly 1 minute behind after missing three targets. "I had to be really perfect to beat Emil today and I was not. I thought I could beat Ole, but had some problems with my skis on the last lap and could not do it," said Fourcade, who maintained a comfortable lead in the standings. Svendsen was 139 points behind after eight events. Calgary native Macx Davies was 54th on Saturday. Also, Darya Domracheva of Belarus won the womens 10K pursuit, finishing in 33 minutes, 35.8 seconds to beat Finlands Kaisa Makarainen for the second time in as many days. Fridays sprint winner, Domracheva, started with a comfortable lead of 29.8 seconds over her rival, though Makarainen fought back to claim first position in the third shoot, only to miss two targets and let Domracheva pull away and claim her second victory of the season, by 34.6 seconds. Both missed three targets altogether. Norways Synnoeve Solemdal was third with two missed targets, 1 minute, 19.1 seconds behind Makarainen, while Tora Berger of Norway was fourth, also with two missed targets. Valj Semerenkos ninth-place finish was enough for the Ukrainian to join Czech skier Gabriela Soukalova atop the standings on 278 points after eight events. Soukalova was 26th after Fridays sprint but managed to claw her way back to 12th. Local favourite Andrea Henkel made up 21 places after a disappointing sprint to finish her last home pursuit in 16th. Henkel, a two-time Olympic gold medallist , is retiring at the end of the season. Claude Godbout of Valcartier, Que., was 55th. Mens and womens mass start races are scheduled for Sunday.

Grilli hasnt pitched since straining his left oblique in late April. Manager Clint Hurdle says the right-hander will make a couple of appearances in middle relief before the team determines whether to return Grilli to the back end of the bullpen. Al-Farouq Aminu Jersey . Jones, from Winnipeg, built a 3-0 advantage after three ends by scoring two in the second and one in the third.

Crawford was the Clippers third-leading scorer and the NBAs top-scoring reserve with 18.CLEVELAND -- The squirrel was fearless. Zach McAllister wasnt nervous, either. Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley hit two-run homers to back McAllister, powering the Cleveland Indians over the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Monday night when a trespassing squirrel ran around Progressive Field and provided some extra entertainment. Kipnis connected in the sixth inning off Jeremy Guthrie (2-1), helping the Indians overcome a 3-2 deficit. Brantley provided Cleveland a 2-0 lead in the fourth. McAllister (3-0) gave up six hits and overcame three errors -- one on his errant throw in the fifth. Marc Rzepczynski and Cody Allen pitched a hitless inning each, and closer John Axford worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his seventh save. After the Royals scored three times, McAllister got out of the fifth with an inning-ending double play and then shook off third baseman Lonnie Chisenhalls error in the sixth and notched his third straight win. "He didnt let anything rattle him," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He worked to execute pitches. He was strong." McAllister also withstood a brief delay in the second when a squirrel ventured onto the field and eluded members of the grounds crew before finally leaving for the night. "He was right in front of me," McAllister said. Indians first baseman Nick Swisher motioned for the critter to run to him, but it darted past and into the outfield grass. "I was like, Cmon over here and sit in my glove," Swisher said. "I thought maybe hed sit on my shoulder like a parrot. I tell you what, that squirrel is eating, bro. That was a big squirrel." The squirrel was directed inside the Royals bullpen by some of the grounds staff, but the slippery rodent escaped and returned for another scamper to the delight of the crowd of 10,789. The pesky intruder hung around for another inning before it was shooed into the Indians centre-field bullpen. The squirrel perched on a ledge for several minutes before jumping the wall into the Heritage Park monument area. "That little joker was frolicking," Royals manager Ned Yost said. &quoot;They could have arrested him for trespassing because he didnt have a ticket.dddddddddddd" Alex Gordon and Omar Infante each had two of the Royals six hits. Indians designated hitter Jason Giambi went hitless in four at-bats in his season debut. He missed Clevelands first 18 games with a broken rib. Swisher led off the sixth with his second double, and Kipnis followed with his third homer, a drive into the seats in right-centre. Kipnis is 8 of 13 (.615) with two homers and six RBIs off Guthrie, who except for the home runs pitched effectively for 6 1-3 innings. Helped by McAllisters throwing error, the Royals scored three runs in the fifth to take a 3-2 lead. Mike Moustakas doubled to open the inning and scored when diving centre fielder Michael Bourn couldnt squeeze a sinking liner by Alcides Escobar. Jarrod Dyson followed with a bunt toward third that McAllister fielded cleanly before throwing wildly past first, allowing Escobar to score. One out later, Infantes RBI single put the Royals in front. Brantley connected in the fourth for his team-leading fourth homer, and second in two days. Kipnis led off with a double, and with one out, Brantley drove a 2-1 pitch from Guthrie over the wall in right. Brantley only hit 10 homers last season, and Francona believes the 26-year-old could develop into a more potent power hitter because "he gives himself a chance every at-bat." NOTES: Royals 1B coach Rusty Kuntz broke his left arm when he struck by a line drive hit by Salvador Perez during batting practice. Kuntz, who will undergo surgery on Wednesday, was replaced by Mike Jirschele. ... The Indians entered the week as one of four teams -- the Reds, Rockies and Padres are the others -- yet to play an extra-inning game. ... With Giambi available, Francona gave struggling DH/3B Carlos Santana the night off. Santana was just 2 for 38 in his past 10 games. ... Royals LHPs Tim Collins (strained hip) and Francisley Bueno (sprained finger) is to throw a simulated game Tuesday. Manager Ned Yost said both will go on a minor league rehab before being activated.
