A Silicon Valley entrepreneur has broken the trans-Atlantic monohull record by more than a day in sailing from New York to England.Jim Clarks 100-foot Comanche covered the 2,880 nautical miles in 5 days, 14 hours, 21 minutes, 25 seconds. Comanche passed Lizard Point just after midnight local time. The old record was 6 days, 17 hours, 52 minutes, 39 seconds by Mari Cha IV in 2003.Comanches mark must be ratified by the World Speed Sailing Council.Comanche was built to break ocean records and the guys have once again powered our fantastic fat-bottomed girl to another title, said Clark, who founded Netscape and Silicon Graphics.Comanche had been on standby for a number of weeks waiting for optimum conditions to slingshot across the Atlantic. The experienced team left New York on Friday evening.With skipper Ken Read committed to TV commentating at the Americas Cup World Series in England, the crew was led by Casey Smith, Tony Mutter, Richard Clarke and navigator Stan Honey.Read said the record was the culmination of six years of work by a huge team of experts offshore and onshore. I never had any doubt this crew would deliver the goods -- the boat was in perfect condition and the only thing that would scupper the record would be Mother Nature, Read said. Luckily she didnt throw a spanner in the works and this team has once again proven why they are some of the best in the business. Jerseys NFL Wholesale . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. NFL Jerseys Cheap . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. http://www.nfljerseyschina.net/ .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Cheap Jerseys . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. ST. LOUIS -- It was strictly business when the St. Louis Cardinals parted ways with Eric Fryer.Their former backup catcher could not deny the extra buzz facing his old team for the first time since resurfacing.Fryer had two hits and three RBIs in his first game with the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 5-2 victory Tuesday night.I mean, I was amped up to play, Fryer said. The familiarity of the team, the atmosphere I was in kind of made it a little easier to kind of harness it back and let the game come to me a little bit.The Cardinals released Fryer when backup catcher Brayan Pena came off the 15-day disabled list and the Pirates, with whom he played in the minors, claimed him off waivers on Sunday. He batted .368 with St. Louis with five RBIs in 38 at-bats behind seven-time All-Star Yadier Molina but Pena has a two-year, $5 million contract.Fryer said Cardinals manager Mike Matheny told him its just one of those things that had to work out this way.It was nice for him to say it like that, but Im on to Pittsburgh, I guess, Fryer said.The Pittsburgh bullpen worked five scoreless innings in support of lefty?Steven Brault, who allowed one earned run in four innings while throwing 82 pitches and adding a single in his debut.Brault learned he would be making the start two days earlier and remembered everything except his glove, which should arrive Wednesday from Indianapolis. He borrowed Jeff Lockes and lived up to expectations.I am forgetful at times and I had a little bit of nerves going, Ill use that as an excuse, Brault said. Overall, I think I reacted well and just tried to keep doing what Ive been doing.The 24-year-old Brault pitched in place of fellow rookie Jameson Taillon, placed on the DL on Sunday with shoulder fatigue. Brault didnt know if he would start Sunday against the Chicago Cubs in the final game before the All-Star break.Juan Nicasio (7-6) worked two scoreless innings and Mark Melancon finisheed for his 21st consecutive save and 25th in 26 chances.ddddddddddddJosh Harrison and David Freese added RBIs for the Pirates, who have taken the first two games of a four-game set and are 7-4 in the season series, closing within one-half game of the second-place Cardinals in the NL Central.Mike Leake (5-7) gave up five runs in six innings for the Cardinals, who got RBIs from Jedd Gyorko and Matt Holliday. Leake has lost his last three outings with a 6.06 ERA.Freese was me missing location but Fryer did a good job of putting the ball in play, Leake said. They werent terribly located balls, but not the best.Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang, under investigation by Chicago police on an allegation of sexual assault, singled pinch-hitting to open the ninth. Manager Clint Hurdle declined comment after the game.HOT BOXHarrison stayed alive in a rundown between third and home long enough for the hitter and runner to take two bases in the fifth. The Cardinals finally got him out on a play scored 3-2-5-3-6-4.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: RHP Ryan Vogelsong (facial fracture) threw 61 pitches in a four-inning simulated game. ... RHP Gerrit Cole (biceps) struck out six and allowed two hits for Triple-A Indianapolis to begin a rehab start.Cardinals: SS Jhonny Peralta was taken out after three innings with discomfort in his left thumb. The team said it was unrelated to the surgery for a torn thumb ligament in March.SLUMPINGMatt Adams, who replaced Peralta in the lineup, is in an 0-for-31 slump.UP NEXTPirates: Locke (8-5, 5.13) has won his last three starts with a 1.93 ERA and bested Oakland ace Sonny Gray his last time out.Cardinals: Jaime Garcia (6-6, 3.84) allowed one run in eight innings against the Brewers his last time out.
