CALGARY -- Mikael Kingsbury has won almost everything there is to win in mens moguls. The prize hes missing is the biggest, and the chance to win it is on the near horizon. The 21-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., is the reigning world champion and has won the World Cup overall title in moguls the last two years. Kingsbury is the heavy favourite to win Olympic gold in Sochi, Russia, next month. His chief rival for gold is Canadian teammate Alex Bilodeau, who happens to be the defending Olympic champion. Kingsbury added to his expanding coffers of hardware Saturday by winning a World Cup in Calgary. Kingsbury and Bilodeau were 1-2 in the final ahead of Patrick Deneen of the U.S. in third at Canada Olympic Park. Montreals Justine Dufour-Lapointe edged American Hannah Kearney for gold. Justines sister, Chloe, was third ahead of Andi Naude of Penticton, B.C., who finished fourth. Kingsbury extended his winning streak at the Calgary stop on the World Cup to four straight years. "Calgary is the best World Cup for me all over the world so far," Kingsbury declared. "I feel like home everywhere in Canada. For sure I cant wait to ski in Quebec, but this year the course was awesome. "I felt very confident today. Thats the biggest point. I felt very good and in very good shape. Its looking good for Sochi." The Canadian freestyle team earned seven out of a possible 12 medals in Calgary and placed another four athletes in the top five. The host country swept the mens halfpipe medals Friday with Justin Dorey of Vernon, B.C., Calgarys Noah Bowman and Matt Margetts of Penticton finishing first to third respectively. Freestyle halfpipe will make its Olympic debut in Sochi. The freestyle and short-track speedskating teams are expected to be the drivers of Canadas medal haul in Sochi, where the countrys goal is to win the overall medal count. Bilodeau, Kingsbury and Justine Dufour-Lapointe have already qualified for Canadas Olympic team. Kingsbury leads the World Cup standings again with his second victory this season. In moguls, a skiers results are determined by their time down the course and judges scores on their style and two jumps. Kingsbury scored 86.50 points followed by Bilodeau with 84.76. The Canadians had higher degrees of difficulty on their air elements than Deneen, who posted the fastest run time and scored 78.16. Bilodeau did not speak to reporters in Calgary after his performance, nor did the 26-year-old participate in a conference call scheduled for later in the day. Bilodeau looked unhappy after the race. His coach Michel Hamelin confirmed that Bilodeau felt he deserved better scores from the judges, and also that Bilodeau was undergoing post-race treatment at the time of the conference call. "Right now, hes in treatment for a massage for his legs," Hamelin said. "Today at the course, he was down about the result. "He felt that when he skis right now, even if he does his best, he feels that he skis with a rock in his pocket. "Right now, the gap (between Bilodeau and Kingsbury) is a bit too much from the judges. If were second with a little bit tighter score well be fine with it. He was kind of upset about why am I not closer to him? "Were really above everyone, but those two guys should always be really tight on the score." Dufour-Lapointe won the womens title in Calgary for the second straight year. With a score of 78.53, Dufour-Lapointe edged Kearney, who won Olympic gold in 2010 ahead of silver medallist Jennifer Heil of Canada. "Today, the good thing is I went fast and did clean jumps and thats how I win," Dufour-Lapointe said. "To win a gold medal at home, its incredible." Kearney scored 77.63 points followed by Chloe Dufour-Lapointe with 74.83. A third Dufour-Lapointe sister, Maxime, qualified for the six-skier final and finished fifth. "Im so happy she made this super final for us," Justine said. "I just wish we could be the three of us at the Olympic Games." Dufour-Lapointe and Kearney are tied atop the womens World Cup standings after two events. The moguls team has World Cup events in Deer Valley, Utah, Lake Placid, N.Y., and Val St. Come, Que., this month before heading to Russia. Every Canadian medallist in Calgary receives a $5,000 bonus from WinSport, which operates Canada Olympic Park. WinSport established the Sarah Burke Performance Awards in memory of the freestyle skier who died in a training accident in January, 2012.

Cheap Air Max 97 Mens . -- Justin Verlander took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning and won his fourth straight decision, leading Detroit over the Kansas City Royals 9-4 Sunday and extending the Tigers winning streak to a season-high five games. MIAMI -- Racing to beat a throw from centre field with the game on the line, Giancarlo Stanton slid and reached out with his left hand to tag the plate. Home sweet home. Stanton and the surprising Miami Marlins won another thriller in their ballpark Wednesday. Stanton scored on Marcell Ozunas one-out sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, and Miami beat the New York Mets 1-0. The Marlins completed a three-game sweep, finished 8-1 on their homestand and improved to 17-5 at home, best in the majors. "We have complete confidence," said Casey McGehee, who drew a key walk during the ninth-inning rally. "There was never a doubt in my mind we were going to get that game, no matter how long it took. Thats the way its supposed to be." The Marlins have won three of their past four games with walkoffs. "They put a lot of strain on guys hearts," said Tom Koehler, who pitched eight innings to match a career high. Koehler held the opposition without a run for the second start in a row, lowering his ERA to 1.99. Steve Cishek (3-1) pitched a perfect ninth to complete a two-hitter and the Marlins sixth shutout. "Nice way to finish the homestand," manager Mike Redmond said. While no team has been better at home, the Marlins 2-10 road record is the worst in the majors. They begin an 11-game, 11-day trip Thursday in San Diego. "Weve just got to keep playing," Redmond said. "Everybody has made a huge deal of the home-road split. But this team is starting to come together. I like exactly where were at right now. I like the energy and the chemistry. I cant wait to get out there." The Mets were swept despite allowing only eight runs in the series. They batted .157, scored three runs and were shut out in the final 23 innings. "They have great young pitchers," manager Terry Collins said. "They can really pitch. You just have to really apply yourself at the plate. Were just not swinging the way you hope to." The Mets scoreless streak is their longest since July 2010 Miami couldnt muster much offence either. Stanton singled for their third hit to start the ninth against Carlos Torres (2-1). McGehee walked on a 3-2 pitch, and Stanton took third on a flyout bby Garrett Jones.dddddddddddd Kyle Farnsworth replaced Torres, and Ozuna, who had struck out in his previous three at-bats, hit a fly to centre fielder Juan Lagares. His throw home was wide of the plate, and the ball skipped away from catcher Anthony Recker as Stanton scored. "The throw was a little bit more off line than wed like," Recker said. "It was one of those do-or-die plays, and I wasnt able to come up with it." Stanton quickly rose to join the mob scene gathering around Ozuna, while Redmond remained in the dugout watching the video scoreboard as a movie clip showed Mrs. Doubtfire dancing with a broom. He suggested the clip to celebrate series sweeps. "When I came here last year, I made sure she -- well, he -- whatever -- I made sure when we swept a team, Mrs. Doubtfire was up on the big board," he said. New York wasted a fine effort by Zack Wheeler, who walked five in six innings but allowed only two hits. He also went 0 for 2 with a strikeout at the plate, leaving Mets pitchers at 0 for 58 this season with 31 strikeouts. The Mets lost for the sixth time in their past seven games and went 2-6 on a three-city trip. The walkoff loss was their seventh at Marlins Park, which opened in 2012. "It has been very difficult," Wheeler said. "We havent played well this series. Its a tough road trip, but I think we have a good group of guys, and I think we can turn it around when we get back home." NOTES: Mets LHP Scott Rice was unavailable in relief because of a sore back. ... On an 85-degree afternoon, the retractable roof was closed after being open the previous two games. ... Stantons bat broke when he grounded into a double play in the sixth. The barrel flew into the stands and slammed against an empty seat, and Stanton crossed first base still holding the handle. ... The Mets play 16 of their next 19 games at home, starting Friday when Jenrry Mejia (3-0, 5.23) is scheduled to start for them against Philadelphias Roberto Hernandez (2-1, 4.50). ... The Marlins begin an 11-game trip, their longest of the season, Thursday at San Diego with Jacob Turner (0-0, 9.90) scheduled to start against the Padres Ian Kennedy (2-4, 3.43). ' ' '
