    SAN FRANCISCO -- St. Adidas Stan Smith Wit Dames . Louis Cardinals right-hander Mike Leake will duel the guy the San Francisco Giants chose to replace him during the winter when he opposes Jeff Samardzija on Saturday night in a key matchup in the National League wild-card race.Leake was acquired by the Giants from the Cincinnati Reds at the trade deadline.San Francisco paid a hefty price -- outfielder Adam Duvall has turned into a 30-homer player -- but the defending champs were trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers atop the NL West at the time and thought they needed to do something.It didnt work. Leake went just 2-5 with a 4.07 ERA in nine starts and the Giants, who trailed LA by a half-game on the day of the trade, wound up eight back.Leake, a free agent at seasons end, wasnt invited back. He went to the Cardinals on a five-year, $80 million deal.The Giants then turned around and invested $10 million more in Samardzija on a five-year agreement.Neither high-priced acquisition has impressed, and thats one reason both teams find themselves battling for wild-card playoff spots rather than division titles.Samardzija has gone 11-10 with a 4.07 ERA in 29 starts for the Giants (79-68), who trail the Dodgers (83-64) by four game atop the West with 15 to play.Perhaps more important, the Giants have used two series-opening wins to open a three-game lead over the Cardinals (76-71) in the NL wild-card race.Leake, meanwhile, is 9-10 with a 4.60 ERA in 27 starts for the Cardinals, who have fallen two games behind the New York Mets (78-69) in the race for the second wild-card spot.We just have to play better, thats all there is to it, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. The standings are the standings, and we know what they are. You cant run from them. The standings say were right there, so just keep playing the game.The pitching head-to-head is critical to each pitcher because both seem to be getting worse as the games get more important.Samardzija is just 3-6 with a 5.09 ERA in his last 15 starts, with the Giants losing 10 of the 15 games.Leake has gone 2/3 with a 6.15 ERA in his last eight outings, with the Cardinals losing five of the eight.If Leake is out for revenge, he should be comforted in the surroundings. Hes 6-1 with a 3.07 ERA in nine outings (eight starts) at AT&T Park in San Francisco and 5-2 overall against the Giants with a 5.02 ERA in nine games (eight starts).He has not faced the Giants this season.Leake must hope for better support than Fridays Cardinals starter, Luke Weaver, who was pulled before the end of a six-run third inning during which a key error by catcher Yadier Molina made all the runs unearned.Thats what you want to do, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt said after the win, take advantage of mistakes.Samardzija pitched June 4 at St. Louis and was the losing pitcher in a 7-4 defeat. Four Cardinals -- Brandon Moss, Aledmys Diaz, Stephen Piscotty and Matt Adams -- homered off him in his five innings.The ex-Cub is 4-4 with a 4.61 ERA in 20 career games (nine starts) against the Cardinals. Adidas Iniki Runner Nederland . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187. Ultra Boost 4.0 Nederland . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. . Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. The NSW Waratahs prospects of making the Super Rugby finals have suffered a crushing blow, with a 28-17 home loss to the Hurricanes.A magical solo try by outside centre Israel Folau helped the Waratahs overturn an early 11-0 deficit on Saturday night to lead 17-11 early in the second half.However, the Hurricanes produced an unanswered run of similar proportions with 17 unanswered points, which tilted the game irrevocably in their favour and gave New Zealand teams a 4-0 record over Australian teams in the penultimate round.The Waratahs head into next weeks final round level on points with the Brumbies, who are at the top of the Australian conference by virtue of having notched one more win.If the Waratahs lose to the Blues in Auckland next Friday, and go down without getting a bonus point, the Brumbies will wrap up the Australian conference title before their game at home to the Force on Saturday.The Hurricanes produced the more consistent, effective and enterprising play at Allianz Stadium, with classy five-eighth Beauden Barrett finishing with 18 points.Barrett made sure their early dominance was reflected on the scoreboard.He pounced on a chip kick from winger Cory Jane to score a try and slotted two penalties.NSW worked their way back into the game in the second quarter and trailed by just one point at halftime.Giant winger Taqele Naiyaravoro crashed over the line from a pick and drive, with five-eighth Bernard Foley adding a conversion and penalty.The latter kick came from the third penalty awarded to the Tahs after the halftime siren.Foleys penalty came after Hurricanes centre Willis Haalaholo was sin-binned for a high tackle on the Waratahs five-eighth. Adidas Swift Run Heren. olau put the Tahs ahead in the 43rd minute, when he showed dazzling footwork to elude three defenders and run over another, with Foley converting.Jane and fellow All Blacks back Julian Savea scored well-executed tries and the Tahs were unable to reply, with Naiyaravoro sent to the sin bin for a second straight week.Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson conceded his side faced a more difficult final round assignment than the Brumbies.You saw how well the Blues played against the Brumbies (on Friday) and so to go to Eden Park and firstly win, and get a bonus point, is a hugely difficult task, Gibson said.He lamented errors and missed opportunities by his side.At times we built pressure well and then we let the Hurricanes off the hook with some mistakes and I think that was pretty costly.There was also moments in the game that we lost. We had those series of scrums on the `Canes five-metre line and came away with no points and that was pretty crucial.And then the last ten minutes of the game where we were desperately chasing a bonus point, we had three or four lineouts in reasonable position and again couldnt convert any pressure.The win clinched a finals spot for the Hurricanes.We knew what the waratahs would bring, so there was no surprises there, Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd said.We managed to repel that and get a few points our own way, so it was probably one of our better efforts of the year.
