Mitchell Starc was also able to deliver six challenging overs before stumps in the day-night match, as he aims to prove his fitness to selectors ahead of the first Test against South Africa.The squad for the Perth Test is due to be named on Friday and there were a number of fascinating sub-plots on offer at the Gabba. One of the most notable was the desire for runs from Burns and Khawaja, both of whom were dropped after two Tests on Australias recent tour of Sri Lanka, and both of whom are hoping for reinstatement for the home summer.However, they had to wait until late in the day for their chance after Khawaja won the toss and sent New South Wales in to bat. David Warner missed out on the opportunity for a big innings against the pink ball, caught behind off the bowling of former Test fast man Peter George for 12, and his opening partner Ed Cowan also departed cheaply for 10.But Smith and Kurtis Patterson were then able to compile a hefty 228-run third-wicket stand, which ended when Smith was bowled by Luke Feldman for 117. Patterson brought up his fifth first-class hundred before falling for 111, also to Feldman, who troubled several batsmen with the pink ball as the Gabba lights came on in the evening and finished with 5 for 68.Smith declared at 7 for 327, which meant Queenslands top order would face a difficult 13-over period before stumps against the Test teams new-ball combination of Starc and Josh Hazlewood. Opener Charlie Hemphrey was bowled by Hazlewood for a duck in the second over of the innings, which brought Khawaja to the crease to join Burns.The moving ball under lights proved a challenge for Burns and Khawaja, but both men made it safely to stumps, giving themselves a chance of a big innings on day two to impress the selectors. At the WACA Shaun Marsh, who had come in for the third Test in Colombo and scored a century, made 73 for Western Australia in his return from a hamstring injury; at the Gabba Burns finished on 21 not out and Khawaja on 18.It was not only the Queensland batsmen who wanted a strong performance ahead of the Test squad selection: Starc needed to convince the selectors of his fitness in his first match back having last month had 30 stitches in his left shin following a horror training mishap. Starc bowled six of the 13 overs Queensland faced late on day one, and took 0 for 26. Cameron Carter-Vickers Hotspur Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. SEATTLE -- Mike Fiers was coming off perhaps his worst start of the season. He followed it up with one of his best at a crucial time for the Houston Astros.Fiers pitched six scoreless innings Saturday night as the Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1.Houston pulled into a tie with Seattle and Detroit in the AL wild-card race, three games behind Baltimore and Toronto.In his last start, Fiers (11-7) gave up seven runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings in a 9-5 loss to the Cubs. Before Saturdays game, Houston manager A.J. Hinch praised Fiers perseverance, a quality that paid off against Seattle.I do expect him on any given night to come out and give a good performance, Hinch said. This is a good ballpark for him to pitch in. When he throws strikes and mixes his pitches, hes as good as weve got.Fiers gave up singles to the first two batters he faced, but allowed only one more hit. It was the third time Fiers didnt allow a run in 27 starts this season, and the three hits allowed also equaled his season best.Weve got a great starting rotation, Fiers said. Maybe things havent gone the way weve wanted them to be, but were still going out there and trying to do our job and not worry about everybody else. Just go game to game.The Astros needed a strong pitching performance, as Seattle starter James Paxton (4-7) dominated early. Paxton was perfect through five innings before allowing both runs in the sixth.At one point you get a little nervous, when you get to the middle part of the game and we hadnt had a baserunner, Hinch said. We just had to wait him out to get a good pitch.Teoscar Hernandez got the Astros first hit to lead off the sixth, a line drive that had Paxton ducking out of the way. Tyler White followed with a double, putting runners aat second and third. Ben Davies Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. After Jake Marisnick grounded out and Paxton struck out George Springer, Yuli Gurriel drove both runs home with a single to give the Astros a 2-0 lead.Paxton pitched through the seventh, giving up four hits with an intentional walk and seven strikeouts.The Mariners had chances to rally in the late innings but fell short.Chris Devenski relieved Fiers in the seventh inning and gave up singles to Kyle Seager and Leonys Martin, putting runners on first and second with two outs. It was the first time the Mariners had multiple baserunners in the game, but Devenski got out of the jam by striking out Mike Zunino after running the count full.In the eighth, Nori Aoki beat out an infield single for his third hit of the game, and Seth Smith followed with an RBI double off Luke Gregerson to cut the Astros lead to one.Gregerson kept Seattle from adding any more, getting Robinson Cano to strike out on a check swing and Nelson Cruz with a pop out to second to end the inning.Our guys are a little anxious. I think you can see it, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. Theres no doubt that were a better offensive club than weve shown the last few nights.TRAINERS ROOMMariners 1B Adam Lind missed his fifth straight game with a sprained finger on his right hand. Servais said Lind is day to day.UP NEXTAstros: RHP Doug Fister (12-11, 4.17 ERA) will start the series finale. Fister has lost three straight decisions, with his last win coming Aug. 22.Mariners: LHP Ariel Miranda (4-1, 4.10) will make his eighth career start and first against Houston. He has earned the win in each of his last three starts. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
