Youth Phillies Jerseys .Rosberg was hit with the penalty for forcing Max Verstappen off the track at Turn 6 while battling for second position. Drivers are required to serve in-race time penalties during pit stops -- with the team unable to touch the car until the penalty has elapsed -- and Mercedes served Rosbergs at his final pit stop.However, when the car entered the pit box the stopwatch failed to start and Rosbergs total stationary time -- including the tyre change -- totaled 12 seconds.Even in a Formula One team with all the high tech, if you get to take out the instruments that you usually dont use like a stopwatch, they can fail and the stopwatch didnt start properly, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff explained. Once we realised we had to take it safe and this is why it took longer than normal.We could have also counted, one-thousand-and-one, one-thousand-and-two, one-thousand-and-three ... but we relied on the stopwatch and it let us down.Although Rosberg would have lost track position to the Red Bulls regardless of the time lost due to the stopwatch failure, he would have resumed closer to Verstappen in the final stint.At the time it wasnt frustrating because I didnt know, Rosberg said. It just felt like I was sitting there forever. Now in hindsight, its not that frustrating either.There were so many things that went wrong today that it was just one more small thing that actually didnt make a difference in the end because I wouldnt have been able to get the Red Bulls anyway. They were on the super-softs and they lasted quite well in that last stint, so that didnt make a difference. Steve Carlton Jersey . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. Authentic Phillies Jerseys . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Fifteen days after he played one of the most flawless rounds of golf in his career, Phil Mickelson stood on the first tee Friday afternoon at Baltusrol Golf Club and proceeded to pound his drive onto one of the few New Jersey streets without traffic.Hours later, Robert Streb, who hasnt finished in the top 10 in a year, whose name doesnt exactly evoke fear when it appears on a leaderboard, became the latest player to shoot 63 in a major championship. And in an interesting bit of trivia, Streb became the fourth to do so here.Mickelson barely made the cut; Streb is tied for the lead through two rounds of the PGA Championship.Sometimes, golf is impossible to explain, and two days at Baltusrol shows why it is exceedingly difficult to handicap.Streb joined Jimmy Walker atop the leaderboard at 9 under par, with Argentinas Emiliano Grillo 2 shots back along with defending champion Jason Day, who had a stretch of eight holes with seven birdies.Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy, who has won this tournament twice and was considered a pretournament favorite, butchered the relatively benign 18th hole to miss the cut. This is the second major championship this year in which he has not qualified for the final 36 holes.I think if you had given anyone else in this field my tee shots this week, they would have been up near the top of the leaderboard, McIlroy said. It just shows you how bad I was around the greens. Ive hit the ball really well and Im walking away not playing the weekend.Its really disheartening. I need to go back to the drawing board and see where we go from here.Then theres 29-year-old Streb, a one-time PGA Tour winner who missed the cut in the previous three major championships this year and who hasnt finished better than a tie for 20th in his previous 17 starts.Streb opened the tournament with a 68 on Thursday. Then, beginning on the back nine for the second round, he played nicely, shooting a 33 that included four birdies and a bogey. But he also birdied the second hole, the sixth and the seventh. And all of a sudden, when he knocked in a 20-footer at the ninth, it added up to 63.Happy to join the club that seems to be ever-growing, Streb said.Going into The Open at Royal Troon, the feat of a single-round 63 at a major had been accomplished 27 times by 25 players.Now it has been done 30 times by 28 players, with Open champion Henrik Stenson doing it in the final round at Royal Troon when he outplayed Mickelson in their epic duel.Stenson has maintained his momentum after capturing the Claret Jug, posting consecutive 67s at Baltusrol to be in fifth place, 3 strokes back of the leaders.Of course, confidence level is always going to go up when yyou manage to accomplish what I did at Troon, the Swede said. Pete Rose Jersey. Youre going to feel a bit more confident, and trusting yourself more that you can do it again if youve done it once. I guess thats natural and I do feel that.I cant guarantee that its going to happen again, if Im in a similar situation. But at least youve got the belief that you can do it.None of the 20 PGA of America club professionals in the field made the cut, which came at 146, 2 over par. So if McIlroy needs a putting lesson, there are plenty of club pros around who have the time to offer some help.While McIlroy will have to watch the weekend on television, one who will be spending less time doing commentary is Rich Beem. The 2002 PGA champion has a full-time gig with Sky Sports in the U.K., working some 25 events a year.He had not played a competitive round of golf on a major tour since last years PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, where he missed the cut. And due to tendinitis in his right shoulder, Beem, 46, has not played much golf this year. He started to play and practice again only in the past month.But he shot 69-72 to make it to the weekend. It means a lot to do this at this point, Beem said. But it kind of messes up my job.A lot of things seem messed up at the moment.Three 63s in majors in a matter of 15 days. No. 2 Dustin Johnson, perhaps the hottest player in golf, and McIlroy, missing the cut. No. 1 Day, ill once again on the eve of a big tournament and getting in but one practice round, shooting 68-65 to be in contention. Jordan Spieth with a lengthy rule issue.And then theres Mickelson, who won the PGA here in 2005 and came oh-so-close to a sixth major title two weeks at Royal Troon. Over four days in Scotland, Mickelson made just four bogeys, twice going bogey-free for entire rounds.On Friday, he went 3-over-par on one hole, and it was fortunate it wasnt worse. His first tee shot found the road, his re-tee nearly went just as far off the fairway to the other side and was fortunate to be in play. From there, he knocked another wayward shot, chipped short of the green, then got-up-and-down for a triple-bogey 7.I think in the history of the PGA Championship, thats the worst start of anyones round, Mickelson said. Id have to look that up.Actually, about 30 minutes after Mickelson, Nicolas Colsaerts made an 8 at the first hole. But it wasnt his first hole of the day.It was probably after I did it, Mickelson quipped. So I had it for a while.There is that. Which is strange, yet seemingly normal in the midst of all the other absurdities.
