Mitchell Marsh had a fine day with ball and then bat as Australia beat New Zealand by four wickets in Wellington in the second one-day international to level the series. Wholesale Barcelona Jerseys . The Black Caps posted 281 for nine from their 50 overs, Marsh snaring two of the top four in six-over figures of 2-30, with Kane Williamson (60) top-scoring and Mitchell Santners late unbeaten 45 boosting the hosts total.Australia looked in trouble at 197 for six, despite a superb knock of 98 from 79 balls from David Warner, but Marsh (69 not out) and John Hastings (48no) got the tourists over the line with an unbroken 86-run seventh-wicket stand.Having won the toss and elected to bat, New Zealand would have been hoping for a mammoth score especially after some early fireworks from Brendon McCullum.The right-hander hit three sixes and two fours in his final innings in Wellington before his 12-ball cameo came to an end when Scott Boland clipped his off stump with his score on 28.Martin Guptill was below his usual explosive best and, when he went for 31 and Henry Nicholls followed 11 balls later, the hosts had slipped to 95 for three in the 18th over.Williamson and Grant Elliott steadied the ship, though, the former manoeuvring the ball on both sides of the wicket to bring up his fifty off 71 balls, and they were in good shape as they passed 150 in the 29th over.However, Williamson and Elliott (32) both departed in the space of two overs and their innings looked like being derailed until Santner and Adam Milne (36) came together at 205-7 in the 41st over.The pair began to find the boundary and put on 61 in 44 balls to drag New Zealand towards the 300 mark.Warner and Usman Khawaja (50) gave Australia a solid start to their response with a 122-run partnership.Khawaja brought up his fifty with a single from the first ball of the 17th over before departing from the next delivery when he chipped a return catch back to bowler Santner. David Warner, spearheading the run chase, fell two runs short of his century The middle order failed to deliver - captain Steve Smith (2) and George Bailey (0) departing in successive balls at the hands of Matt Henry, and Glenn Maxwell (6) bowled by Trent Boult - but that only served to speed up Marshs arrival.Warner was sent back two short of his hundred when he was adjudged lbw off the bowling of Santner after a review, leaving Australia 191-5 and the match in the balance. Watch Adam Milne joined the ranks of spectacular boundary catches for New Zealand during their second ODI against Australia. Matthew Wade (2) did not last long - falling to a wonderful left-handed catch on the mid-wicket boundary, which secured Santner his third wicket - but, when Hastings joined Marsh in the middle, the writing was on the wall for the home team.Marsh overpowered New Zealand with nine fours and a six in his 72-ball innings, while Hastings - five fours and one six - produced some neat shots to find the gaps before unleashing a few big hits of his own in the closing stages to guide Australia to victory from 46.3 overs.The teams head into Mondays third and final ODI in Hamilton with the series finely poised at 1-1.Watch the deciding match of the series in Hamilton, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 00.55 on Monday, February 8 Cheap Barcelona Jerseys China . 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. Cheap Barcelona Jerseys . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. http://www.cheapbarcelonajerseys.com/ . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. BENSALEM, Pa. -- The 12-horse field that went postward in the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing on Saturday was comprised of horses at varying stages of their careers.Nyquist and Exaggerator had won on the biggest nationals stages. Gun Runner and Cupid had won important races but not at this level of competition. Others were in search of their first graded scores.Connect fell into the latter group, but when the dust cleared he had not only padded his resume but had done it in a style which suggests we will be seeing him in major races from here on in.Owned by Paul Pompa Jr. and trained by Chad Brown, Connect was making only his sixth career start. He had finished a well-beaten sixth in the Travers, his graded stakes debut, but had come out of that race ill.He had a pretty significant lung infection, Brown said by phone from Belmont Park. We cleaned that up and he came back to form today.Connect was given a ground-saving ride in the 1-1/8-mile Pennsylvania Derby by Javier Castellano, and held off Gun Runner through the final furlong to win by a half-length. It was four lengths back to Wild About Deb in third.Awesome Slew hopped out to a clear early lead in the $1.25 million Derby with Cupid galloping along behind him, several lengths ahead of Nyquist, who was third, and Gun Runner, in fourth.The fractions were a realistic 23.01 seconds, 47.35, and 1:11.81.On the far turn, Cupid began to flatten out while Nyquist made a three-wide move after Awesome Slew. Gun Runner commenced his bid four wide and Connect was making progress along the inside.Entering the stretch, Nyquist challenged for the lead while Connect made a quick move and slipped through inside horses. He had the lead at the furlong pole with Gun Runner challenging from the center of the track. They stayed that way to the wire. Cheap Barcelona Jerseys Authentic. .I was confident in the stretch, Castellano said. I had a lot of horse and didnt think the other horse was going to get by.Connect paid $23.20 as fifth choice in the race. His final time was 1:50.20.Nyquist couldnt sustain his drive in the stretch and came out on the wrong end of a four-horse photo for third, finishing sixth.He was in a perfect spot, trainer Doug ONeill said. Mario [Gutierrez] said he was kind of struggling with the track but he had a good trip and we have no excuses. Well take him home and talk about what we should do next.Exaggerator made a move outside horses nearing the far turn but never reached contention and finished seventh, seven lengths behind Nyquist. Awesome Slew held on for fourth and Cupid dropped back to eighth.Connect, a son of Curlin, is now 4 for 6 in his career. After losing his career debut at Aqueduct last December, he won three races in a row - a Belmont maiden race in May, a Belmont allowance in June, and the restricted Curlin Stakes early in the Saratoga meet.The Travers is the only race where he hasnt fired, Brown said. We have always have had a lot of confidence in this horse. Im proud of him. I mean I wouldnt have gone in predicting that we would win against Gun Runner and Nyquist. Those are very tough horses. But Im not surprised either.Brown said he did not have any immediate plans for Connect, as he had been focusing solely on this race.Id like to give credit to my team and also to Mr. Pompa, who once we got him healthy wanted to run in this race, Brown said. He has always been a horse that catches the eye. Hes a big, well-bred horse. Hes really easy to like. He had his day today. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
