Pachi the Porcupine was unveiled on Wednesday after a nationwide contest was held among school children to design the international sporting events cartoon character. Four Grade 8 students from Buttonville Public School in Markham, Ont., had their design selected among 4,000 entries. "(The name) came to me once when I was reading my manga book, which is a Japanese comic book. There was a Japanese phrase called pachi pachi, and in English it translates to clapping with joy," said 14-year-old Paige Kunihiro shortly after the mascot was revealed in a ceremony in downtown Toronto. "We know that in the Pan Am Games theres going to be a lot of cheering on our favourite athletes and superstars." Kunihiro put together the winning entry with classmates Fiona Hong, Jenny Lee and Michelle Ing -- all of whom are 13 years old -- after physical education teacher Mari Ellery had them enter the contest as part of a school project. Pachi has 41 quills, one for each country participating in the Pan Am Games. The contest required that all entries use the official colours of the Games, so the quills are multicoloured, with each representing the qualities Pachi has: green for youth, fuchsia for passion, blue for collaboration, orange for determination and purple for creativity. "We saw that there were so many colours left, so we wanted to incorporate all of them so we put them on the quills," said Ing. Added Lee: "What better way to take advantage of the quills." The girls chose a porcupine for the anthropomorphic mascot because its indigenous across North and South America. "We were initially doing research about Canadian animals and Michelle came across the porcupine and we looked into that because we were like, well thats unique," said Lee. "She found out that they are found in all of the countries that are participating." Olympic gold medallist Rosie MacLennan, from Toronto, and Paralympic gold medallist Tyler Miller, from Kitchener, Ont., were also on hand to introduce Pachi in front of hundreds of children at Kids CBC Days. "Mascots are the face of the Games and something that I remember fondly from the Games I have competed at," said MacLennan in a statement. "Pachi is definitely lovable and memorable."" target="_blank">Nike Vapormax Flyknit Platino Puro Rosse 849558-060 . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday." target="_blank">Off-White x Nike Vapormax Nere/Totale Cremisi AA3831-002 .

MILWAUKEE -- The starting pitchers in Sundays game between the Milwaukee Brewers are 32 and 31 years old.One is a veteran with a pair of World Series rings on his hand while the other is a rookie phenom who has bounced around in baseballs wilderness.The latter is Brewers starter Junior Guerra, who was plucked off the waiver wire a day after the season ended in 2015. Guerra, originally slated to provide some minor league bullpen depth, has emerged as one of the teams most consistent starters, going 6-2 with a 3.06 ERA while striking out 78 in 88 1/3 innings of work.Milwaukee gave Guerra an extra day of rest coming out of the All-Star break before returning to the mound July 19, when he allowed two runs over six innings but didnt take a decision in Milwaukees 3-2 loss to the Pirates.The extra rest came as Milwaukee tries to keep an eye on Guerras workload. He has pitched one inning more than he worked all of last season while in the White Sox minor league system.We wanted to give Guerra a longer break, pitching coach Derek Johnson said prior to his last start. We think it will help but he wasnt showing any fatigue. He has been very strong.It seems like he gets better as the game goes on, which I think is a good trait. ... This is the first time he has been a starter in the big leagues, and the strain and stresss of that." target="_blank">Nike Air VaporMax Plus Nere-Bleached Aqua-Vivid Sulfur AO4550-002. You hope it doesnt backfire where a guy has too much time off but I dont think it will happen.Guerra allowed three runs over seven innings while striking out a career-high 11 in his only career appearance against the Cubs -- a 3-0 Brewers victory May 19 at Miller Park.Jon Lester (10-4, 2.89 ERA) makes his second start of the second half for the Cubs. He allowed a run over 7 2/3 innings against the Mets last time out but since winning five in a row from May 27-June 18, hes 1-1 with a 5.74 ERA in five starts.After beating the Mets, Lester said hed identified some flaws with his delivery that hes since corrected.You start worrying about that stuff, youre far gone, Lester said. Then youre thinking too deep. Youre worried about things you shouldnt.Lester makes his fifth career start against the Brewers. Hes 2-2 with a 2.22 ERA in his four previous outings against Milwaukee, but hasnt faced the Brewers this season.Among Brewers regulars, only Ryan Braun (5-for-13) has more than five at-bats against Lester.The Brewers looks to take their second consecutive series with the Cubs, who have still won 18 of the last 26 meetings between the National League Central rivals.
