ROME -- It will likely be Silvio Berlusconis final derby as AC Milan owner. And the first for Inters new Chinese proprietors.Plus Silvio Piolis debut as coach of struggling Inter.Combined with the rise of Milans youth-oriented squad after several difficult seasons, Sundays match is being celebrated both as the end of an era and a time of new beginnings.It seems like a different derby compared to the last several, in terms of interest, tickets, standings and the new developments in club ownership, Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said.Berlusconi, who purchased Milan 30 years ago, is expected to close a deal next month selling his majority stake in the club to a Chinese investor group that includes the participation of a Chinese state investment fund.While seven-time European champion Milan has not qualified for continental play for three consecutive seasons, the Rossoneri have seen a turnaround this season under first-year coach Vincenzo Montella.Relying on 17-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, 18-year-old midfielder Manuel Locatelli and forward MBaye Niang, a relative veteran at 21, Montella has guided Milan to third place with a new sense of team unity.After all these difficult years full of problems which Im not going to list now, this might be the first time that were re-establishing a close-knit group, Milan midfielder Andrea Poli said. Were on the right road and weve got to continue along this path.Inter, meanwhile, is languishing in ninth place with just as many losses -- five -- as wins this season.Pioli, the former Chievo Verona and Lazio coach, was hired last week to replace the fired Frank de Boer.De Boer was hired less than two weeks before the season began following the unexpected resignation of Roberto Mancini, who reportedly wanted more control over the transfer market and clashed with Suning, the Chinese retail giant that took control of 70 percent of Inter in June.Usually a coaching change brings good luck and the derby is often won by the underdog, former Inter president Massimo Moratti said. But its not an easy job for Pioli. Hes got a difficult match right away. But hes intelligent and hes been able to get his squads to play well.Inter has a wide array of top-quality players -- such as Mauro Icardi, who tops the Serie A scoring chart alongside Romas Edin Dzeko with 10 goals each, plus Croatia midfielder Ivan Perisic, Montenegro forward Stevan Jovetic and Italy internationals Eder and Antonio Candreva -- but the Nerazzurri were inconsistent and appeared confused under De Boer.When there are changes its never just the failure of a coach who is fired. Its also an alarm bell for the players, said former Milan standout Demetrio Albertini.When you make a change it shakes things up. So Inter will have the advantage of having a new coach and the players will want to prove themselves, Albertini added. Qualitatively, theyre extraordinary players but they havent shown their value yet this season.When Mancini returned to Inter in November 2014, the derby was also his first match back in charge. The game ended in a 1-1 draw.In a move linked to Inters past, the clubs former defender Walter Samuel was hired as one of Piolis assistants.Samuel scored when Inter won the derby 1-0 four years ago.Thats a great and useful move, Moratti said. We needed him.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Air Force 1 Cheap Outlet . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. Wholesale Air Force Ones . The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. http://www.discountairforce1.com/ . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. Discount Air Force 1 . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. Air Force 1 Clearance . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. ATLANTA -- Tim Lincecum isnt lacking confidence even if his statistics are below average. "Every outing I go out there, I know I can take some positives from it and try not to lean on the negatives so much," he said, "because that kind of focus can lead to some compounding issues." Lincecum lost his second straight start, and left fielder Andres Torres cost him an unearned run in the sixth inning of San Franciscos 3-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night. Freddie Freeman singled three times and drove in one run for Atlanta, which got six innings from Julio Teheran to win its second straight and take the three-game series. San Francisco, the defending World Series champion, has lost 14 of its last 20 on the road. Giants manager Bruce Bochy was proud of how Lincecum competed despite falling behind 2-0 after the second and getting no run support. "I think it says a lot about how he gutted it out and found a way to get on track," Bochy said. "He kept us in the game. It was a great job by him. He was having a hard time getting the ball where he wanted at times early in the game, but got better as he went." Braves closer Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 19th save in 22 chances. Kimbrel struck out Torres and Joaquin Arias before retiring Nick Noonan on a flyout. Freeman, who began the night hitless in 11 career appearances against Lincecum, singled in his first three at-bats and improved his average to .456 with runners in scoring position -- third-best in the majors. One night after he drove in the winning run off Giants closer Sergio Romo, Freeman made it 1-0 in the first when his RBI single scored Andrelton Simmons from second. Freemans single in the third moved Justin Upton to second. The next batter, B.J. Upton, drove in his brother Justin from second to put Atlanta up 2-0. Lincecum (4-7) gave up six hits and five walks in six innings. Two of his three runs were earned, and he struck out three. "Some of those pitches I left up that Freeman hit, theyre kind of mistake pitches that just shouldnt happen -- like that 0-2 pitch in the first inning," Lincecum said. "Other than that, I felt good. My rhythm was good, but just a couple of guyss got away from me here and there, especially leadoff batters.dddddddddddd That will hurt you, which they did." Teheran (5-3) allowed seven hits and one walk. The 22-year-old struck out eight and benefited from stellar plays by outfielders Jason Heyward and Justin Upton in the fourth, and by Simmons at shortstop in the sixth that kept a run from scoring with the Braves holding a two-run lead. Torres, San Franciscos left fielder, hurt his team in the bottom of the sixth when Ramiro Penas single appeared to bounce off his right foot and toward the wall. Pena, who reached third on Torres two-base fielding error, scored when pinch-hitter Jordan Schafer drove him in with a sacrifice squeeze bunt to make it 3-0. "I feel terrible," Torres said. "When those kinds of things happen, you dont feel good, you know? You try to help, but at the same time, were human. We make mistakes." Teheran struggled in his previous outing, a 7-6 loss at San Diego last Monday, but he beat the Giants for the second time in two starts against them since May 9. Lincecum, a two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, has lost six of his last nine starts and has a 6.69 ERA in those losses. "You go out there and work on (timing) in between innings with your warm-up pitches," Lincecum said. "Thats the frustrating part when you cant just repeat it. Then you have to grind and make better pitches to the next guy, you know?" Luis Avilan and Jordan Walden pitched scoreless innings for Atlanta in the seventh and eighth. Jose Mijares and rookie Jake Dunning, who made his major league debut, held the Braves to one hit in the seventh and eighth. Notes: Giants CF Angel Pagan said before the game that hes still hoping to avoid surgery on his left hamstring. Pagan took a platelet-rich plasma injection behind his knee last Sunday and is still unable to run the bases. Hes missed 20 straight games with the injury. ... The Giants 6-5 loss Saturday was their first when leading after eight innings since July 4, 2012 at Washington. ... San Francisco 3B Pablo Sandoval, on the disabled list with a strained left foot, holds a narrow lead over Mets 3B David Wright in balloting for the July 16 All-Star Game in New York. ' ' '
