    MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- Sebastian Vettel has refused to get excited about Ferraris strong one-lap? pace during Friday practice at the Mexican Grand Prix, but says his team had a positive day at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.Vettel finished the session 0.004s ahead of Lewis Hamilton as the Ferrari appeared to be better suited to the low grip conditions. Mercedes habitually runs lower power settings on Friday, but even with Hamilton ahead of Vettel the pace of the Ferrari still represents a big step forward compared to the last round in Austin.I think Lewis lap didnt look particularly good, so I think he has a little bit more in the pocket, Vettel said. But our pace was already very good last year, so it seems there might be something about Mexico City that suits Ferrari and hopefully we can carry that momentum into tomorrow. Its difficult to say, its Friday after all, so not the time to get excited. If we are in the same position tomorrow afternoon then we can be excited.Overall, we had a very good day, not judging the result but just judging the feeling of overall pace, and not just for one lap but all the laps we did. And we didnt have any problems and we were ahead of schedule leaving the garage, which is a very good sign. So overall a very good day.Vettel complained about traffic over the radio a number of times and afterwards compared the situation to driving on Mexico Citys clogged highways.Maybe it was just me today, but I felt that I was actually in Mexico City and not on the track today because there was so much traffic. I guess everybody was fighting with the same problems of making the tyres last, especially with the super-softs.I dont know entirely because I had so much traffic that I didnt have successive laps. But overall the pace was good, so thats the more important thing. I think we can still improve tomorrow and go from there. Lebron 12 Shoes For Sale .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start.

Cheap Lebron 15 . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Rangers impressive stretch of scoreless innings by the pitching staff ended with an emphatic thud Sunday.More importantly, manager Jeff Banisters ballclub missed a chance to hang onto its lead in the race for home-field advantage in the playoffs.Not that theres much concern in Texas clubhouse.With their final six games at Globe Life Park -- where they own the second-best home record in the AL -- the Rangers are still confident heading into the final stretch of the regular season.Its crucial, Banister said after Oakland rookie Jharel Cotton pitched seven crisp innings to beat Rangers 7-1. We need to go home and play clean baseball. We were able to get some guys rest, get some guys off their legs today, so they should be fresh going into tomorrow.The Rangers, who clinched the AL West on Friday, fell into a tie with the Boston Red Sox for home-field advantage in the playoffs. Texas (92-64) holds a slight tiebreaking advantage based on division record and will close out the regular season with a pair of three-game series against Milwaukee and Tampa Bay.Things might not have been so tight had the Rangers been able to do anything against Cotton.Adrian Beltre drove in the only run for Texas with his team-leading 32nd home run in the seventh. It was the 445th career home run for Beltre. The 37-year-old also singled to move past home run king Barry Bonds on the career hits list with 2,937.Beyond that, the Rangers had just two singles and a double.Thats the first time weve seen (Cotton), Banister said. Hes got a special changeup . something we had not seen. When hes got that working for him it does present a challenge when its the first time these guys have seen him.Ryon Healy had three hits, including a two-run homer, and Stephen Vogt drove in three runs to help the As win after being shut out in back-to-back games.Oakland will be sitting out the postseason and had lost the first five games on this homestand, but ended it on an encouraging note behind Cotton (2-0). The rookie right-hander allowed one run, struck out five and faced two over the minimum while quieting the Rangers potent offennse.ddddddddddddCotton became the first As pitcher since at least 1913 to start his career with four consecutive starts of five innings or longer while allowing one earned run or less.I feel like it was a Sunday game and they wanted to get away, Cotton said of the Rangers hitters. I was on the mound like, `Thank you. Just keep swinging. That was good for me.Sean Doolittle and Ryan Dull pitched one inning apiece to complete the five-hitter.The As did all of their scoring in the second to chase starter Colby Lewis (6-4).Bruce Maxwell blooped an RBI single just past the outstretched glove of shortstop Hanser Alberto. Marcus Semien scored on a groundout and Vogt lined a three-run double to right before Healys 12th home run, a towering shot that put Oakland up 7-0.That ended a streak of 23 consecutive scoreless innings by Texas pitchers.LEWIS BEATEN BUT ENCOURAGEDLewis, who had won four consecutive games at the Coliseum, lasted just 1 1/3 innings and allowed a season-high seven runs and seven hits. The right-hander has lost four consecutive decisions, three since a two-month stint on the disabled list.I felt great, the best Ive felt in a long time, Lewis said. Thats the way it goes. I feel like I made a lot of good pitches. They just were able to drop balls in where our defenders werent. Thats about it.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: Sonny Gray will come off the disabled list to make his first start in nearly two months against the Angels on Wednesday. Gray has not pitched in a game since Aug. 6 because of a forearm strain.UP NEXTRangers: LHP Martin Perez (10-10) faces the Brewers on Monday when Texas begins its final homestand of the regular season. Perez owns a 2.65 ERA at home, tied for the lowest in the AL among qualifying pitchers.Athletics: Sean Manaea (6-9) starts against the Angels in Anaheim on Monday. The left-handed rookie has not allowed a run in 11 consecutive innings since missing more than two weeks with a sore back.---This story corrects the spelling to Banister throughout. ' ' '
