Leiter Jr., the son of the former Angels pitcher, struck out 20 batters Friday night for New Jersey Institute of Technol

Melbourne, Australia- Stan Wawrinka put an end to Novak Djokovics three-year reign at the Australian Open on Tuesday. Swingman John Havlicek Jersey . There will be no Down Under four-peat for Djokovic, as the eighth-seeded Swiss slugger Wawrinka outlasted the second seed 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7 at Melbourne Parks Rod Laver Arena in yet another five-set thriller in their burgeoning rivalry. The intense affair was tied at 5-5 in the fifth set when a rain shower started to fall, forcing a brief stoppage. When the players returned to the court, with Wawrinka serving at 40-15 in the 11th game of the stanza, the sturdy Swiss swatted his 17th ace to grab a 6-5 edge. Five games later, the former world No. 1 Djokovic was serving to stay in the match, but his Swiss counterpart recorded the biggest break of the fortnight on the mens side when Djokovic misfired wide with one final forehand, sending Wawrinka into his first-ever Aussie Open semi and second career major final four. He also appeared in last years U.S. Open semis, only to lose to Djokovic. Tuesdays big-hitting bout was completed in four hours, including a 79-minute, 16-game final set. Wawrinka broke Djokovic five times, while the Serb settled for four breaks in the tough setback. Djokovic actually won eight more points than Wawrinka (161-153), but one more break of serve was the difference on Day 9. "I tried everything. Hes an amazing champion. He never gives up. Im really, really, really, really, really, really happy," Wawrinka said. The 28-year-old Wawrinka had dropped his last 14 matches against the 26-year- old Djokovic, who is now 15-3 lifetime against the Swiss. Wawrinka hadnt beaten him since 2006. Djokovic outlasted Wawrinka in a five-set epic in the fourth round in Melbourne a year ago and also topped the Swiss in a brilliant five-set U.S. Open semi in September. "He deserved this win today. I congratulate him," Djokovic said. "There is nothing I can say. I gave it my best. I gave it all. I tried to fight until the last point, as I did in a very similar match we did last year in the fourth round, same court, but it wasnt to be this time." The six-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic had won his last 25 matches at the Aussie Open, where hed captured three straight and four of the last six championships. The super Serb had also appeared in 14 straight major semifinals before this week, the second-longest streak in history behind only Roger Federer record mark of 23. Djokovics loss on Tuesday marked his first since falling to Rafael Nadal in Septembers U.S. Open final (28-1). He had also won his last 13 matches overall against fellow top-10 players. Djokovic was trying to become the first man in the Open Era to win four straight Aussie crowns. Wawrinka, who had been 2-28 against top-two players, including 0-6 at Grand Slam events, joins Federer as the only Swiss men to reach multiple Grand Slam semifinals. His semifinal opponent on Thursday will be seventh-seeded former Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych, who upset third seed David Ferrer 6-1, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 on Tuesday. The 28-year-old Berdych, like Wawrinka, will now appear in his first-ever Aussie semi. The "Big Four" of Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and Federer have combined to win 34 of the last 35 Grand Slam events. The 13-time major champion Nadal was the Aussie champ in 2009 and runner-up to Djokovic in 2012; Murray is a three-time runner-up, including last year against Djokovic; and the 17-time Grand Slam king Federer owns four Aussie titles and was the 2009 runner-up here to Nadal. Swingman Dennis Johnson Jersey .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. Bill Russell Celtics Jersey . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. http://www.officialcelticsproauthentic.com/Authentic-Marcus-Smart-Celtics-Jersey/ .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jason Vargas and the Los Angeles Angels infield provided a blueprint on how to win a game efficiently. Vargas pitched a three-hitter for his first victory with his new club, Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout homered and the Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-0 Friday night. Vargas (1-3) threw 107 pitches in his sixth start for the Angels, striking out three and walking two while getting 15 groundball outs. The shutout was the fourth by the left-hander in 136 career starts and his ninth complete game. "I guess I take more satisfaction just in the way we played the game and the way we were able to be so efficient out there without really giving them an opportunity to put together a big inning," Vargas said. "The plays that we made out there early and late really just set us up for success. " Vargas did not allow a hit until J.J. Hardy slapped an opposite-field single to right with two out in the fifth. The left-hander walked his next batter, Steve Pearce, on four pitches before Alexi Casilla grounded out. "It was one of those games where the balls they hit hard happened to go at people," said Vargas, who retired his first four batters on flyballs. "But if you can control the count and control the hitter, youre going to have the upper hand." The Orioles got a runner to third base in the seventh when Adam Jones led off with a double and advanced on a groundout by Ryan Flaherty, who had replaced first baseman Chris Davis in the fifth after the Orioles home run and RBI leader injured his right knee. But Jones was tagged out in a rundown by third baseman Alberto Callaspo, who fielded Hardys grounder as Jones went on contact. Vargas lowered his ERA to 1.63 against the Orioles in seven starts against them, his best against any team. "Hes one of those guys that you know what hes going to do coming in," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "I thought when they made that acquisition in the off-season, it was one of the better ones made under the radar. Theyll like him before the seasons over." Baltimores only other hit was a one-out double in the ninth by Nick Markakis. But Vargas ended it by striking out Adam Jones and retiring pinch-hitter Chris Snyder -- fittingly enough -- on a grounder to third base. "Hes a competitor, man," said Angels injured ace Jered Weaver, who has known Vargas since they were teammates at Long Beach State. "He had some good stuff at Long Beach. He was like a 94 guy in college, but we all know that that dooesnt last forever. Avery Bradley Jersey. Hes turned himself into a pitcher now. Hes not a thrower like he was in college." Miguel Gonzalez (2-2) gave up three runs and six hits over six innings and struck out five without walking a batter. The right-handers outing was shortened by a blister on his thumb. "He could have maybe finished the game," Showalter said. "Weve got an off-day next week, so we can give him an extra day. But well see if hell miss that start. Its a pretty deep blister. He ripped the top off of it." Gonzalez retired the side on just five pitches in the first inning, but Trumbo drove his first offering of the second to left-centre for his seventh home run and fourth in five games. "I guess at times I can be kind of streaky," said Trumbo, who had a four-game home run streak last season. "If youre aggressive within an area, then you can check off some of the pitches that you cant handle." The Angels got a runner to third base in the third, when Erick Aybar doubled with two out and advanced on a wild pitch. Gonzalez escaped the jam by striking out Trout, but last seasons AL rookie of the year made up for it his next time up in the fifth with a drive over the left field fence. Trout made it 4-0 in the seventh with an RBI single. Gonzalez was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Angels in December 2004, but never played for the big club. His first big league start came against them on July 6, 2012 at the Big A, allowing a run over seven innings in a 3-2 victory. During that game he wore a glove given to him by minor league teammate Nick Adenhart, who was killed by a convicted drunk driver in 2009. NOTES: Mark Leiter Jr., the son of the former Angels pitcher, struck out 20 batters Friday night for New Jersey Institute of Technology in a 5-3 victory over Chicago State. He was only 3 years old when his infant brother Ryan died of spinal muscular atrophy in April 1994, just as their father was beginning his only season with the Halos. ... Callaspo returned from the disabled list after missing 19 games with a bruised left heel. The Angels optioned INF Andrew Romine to Triple-A Salt Lake. ... RHP Jerome Williams will make his first start of the season on Sunday instead of RHP Garrett Richards, who is back in the Angels bullpen after going 1-2 with a 5.54 ERA in four starts in Weavers place. Williams first eight appearances were in relief, including a six-inning stint at Oakland on Monday night, when he pitched the 10th through 15th innings and gave up an unearned run in a 19-inning loss.
