back for a 1-1 draw with South Africa to mo
#1
MONGOMO, Equatorial Guinea - Senegal came back for a 1-1 draw with South Africa to move top of Group C at the African Cup of Nations on Friday.Defender Serigne Mbodji equalized with a thumping header in the 61st minute after Senegal had fallen behind to Oupa Manyisas goal early in the second half.The Senegalese also had a goal disallowed three minutes before Mbodjis header, when Sadio Manes strike was ruled out for offside. It was a tight call.Group C is wide open, with favourite Algeria and Ghana a point behind on three points after Ghanas 1-0 win earlier on Friday. South Africa is bottom and has the toughest task to make the quarterfinals.Senegal fought back for the second time at the Cup of Nations after the last-minute 2-1 win over Ghana in its opener, and now needs just a draw to emerge from a tough group and make the quarterfinals.Before the tournament everyone said the three other teams were the favourites for the group. Right now, we are in first position, Senegal captain Bouna Coundoul said.Senegal needed to show fight for the second straight game, though, after Manyisa was played in on the left two minutes into the second half and hit his shot across Coundoul for South Africas lead.Recovered from injury and back in the team, midfielder Mane had a goal disallowed, but Senegal kept attacking and Mbodji rose to power home his header in the 61st.Dame NDoye made an immediate impact for Senegal off the bench, driving a rising shot toward goal in the last 10 minutes and forcing keeper Thapelo Mabokgwane to dive to his right and knock it away.And in a frantic finish, South Africas Anele Ngcongca had a glimpse of goal before being denied by a block from defender Lamine Gassama.While Senegal knows what it needs to do, South Africa must beat Ghana to make the last eight and hope Algeria loses to Senegal.Of course we have a chance, South Africa midfielder Dean Furman said. We always have a chance. Thats how weve approached this tournament from the start.

Miller provides the Orioles another solid left-hander among a crop of relievers that has flourished this season, led by Darren ODay (3-1, 1.10 ERA) and lefty Zach Britton (3-2, 1.65 ERA, 21 saves). "With the two really talented left-handed relievers at the end of the game, along with Darren ODay, it gives us a very, very formidable backend of the bullpen," Orioles vice-president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said. The 29-year-old Miller has a 2.34 ERA in 50 appearances with the last-place Red Sox, who unloaded several of their veterans Thursday before the end of the non-waiver trade deadline. Miller has limited left-handed hitters to a .150 batting average and kept righties to a .180 average in 150 plate appearances. He was expected to be in uniform for Baltimore on Friday against Seattle. "Millers emergence this year, being able to get out right-handers along with lefties, made him very attractive," Duquette said. "Not just to us. We ended up getting him, but there were a lot of other clubs that were in the market for left-handed relievers. His capabilities and his performance this year really distinguished himself from any other players in that position in the market." Duquette liked the Orioles starting rotation and didnt want to give up a playyer on the current 25-man roster, so adding Miller appeared to be just the right move.dddddddddddd "This is one area where we could strengthen our club without giving up an asset on the current team," Duquette said. Since becoming a full-time reliever in 2012, Miller has a 2.78 ERA in 140 games while averaging 13.3 strikeouts per nine innings. His contract expires after this season, so theres a chance he wont be with the Orioles beyond this year. "We know Andy Miller is going to be a free agent," Showalter said. "We think he can impact our ability to make the playoffs. Were willing to take that risk." The 21-year-old Rodriguez is 3-7 with a 4.79 ERA in 16 starts with Double-A Bowie this year. "Im not excited about losing Eduardo, but youve got to give up quality to get quality," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Its a tribute to our farm system that we could sign and develop someone that brought Andrew." Duquette said, "We hated to give up a young left-handed pitcher. We tried a lot of other combinations short of Eduardo Rodriguez, but in this case it was required to make the deal. " Although Miller isnt necessarily a huge name, he comes to the Orioles on a day their division opponents lost star pitchers Jon Lester (Boston to Oakland), John Lackey (Boston to St. Louis) and David Price (Tampa Bay to Detroit). "Im hoping we play well enough to see them again," Showalter said. ' ' '
