PHILADELPHIA -- A simple foul ball halted Ben Reveres hot streak. Revere will have surgery Tuesday on his broken right foot and is expected to miss six to eight weeks, leaving the Philadelphia Phillies looking for another centre fielder. "I think its going to be something thats going to take a while," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "If thats the case, well probably be looking for a centre fielder if theres one available." Revere broke his foot on a foul ball before hitting into a double play to end Philadelphias 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday. Before going down, Revere had been one of the top hitters in baseball over the past two months. He was hitting .347 since May 1 to raise his average from .200 to .305. Since June 12, Revere was hitting .407 (48 for 118). "Its one of those deals," Revere said Sunday. "Its part of the game. Ive probably hit a couple balls on the same spot a couple times and really nothing happened, except a bruise. But this was finally the one that cracked it." Acquired from Minnesota last off-season, Revere started slow with his new team. But he had solidified the leadoff role, allowing manager Charlie Manuel to move Jimmy Rollins around and have more lineup flexibility. Revere leads the Phillies with 22 stolen bases and his .338 on-base percentage is second to Michael Youngs .344. "Ben Revere has given us a lift," Amaro said. John Mayberry Jr. started the last two games in Reveres place and hit a game-tying, solo homer in a 2-1 win Saturday night, and had a game-winning RBI single in extra innings Sunday. Still, the Phillies will be looking for an upgrade. "John is a good centre fielder, hes solid," Amaro said. "Hes not a plus defender, so if we can get a better one, that would be good." While theyll be exploring the trade market for proven centre fielders, the Phillies are considering internal options in their minor-league system. Cesar Hernandez, who filled in a few games at second base last month when Chase Utley was injured, recently was moved to centre field at Triple-A Lehigh Valley and will be heading to Double-A Reading to play the position exclusively. The Phillies are back in the playoff race after starting this month 9-4 to reach .500 at the All-Star break. Theyre 6 1/2 games behind NL East-leading Atlanta and 4 1/2 behind Cincinnati for the second wild-card spot. Air Max 1 Herren Schweiz . In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. Air Max 1 Günstig Schweiz . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. http://www.airmax1schweiz.ch/ .

Newcastle Falcons survived a last-minute penalty kick at goal to edge a 19-17 win over Sale Sharks in their opening Aviva Premiership game of the season at Kingston Park.The Falcons led 19-10 deep into the second half but Sale battled back with a cracking try from fullback Byron McGuigan to cut the lead to just two points with Dan Mugfords conversion with just 10 minutes left.It seemed Marcus Watson had scored a crucial try with three minutes left but the TV replay showed a knock-on and despite Newcastle turning the ball over after the scrum, Sale squeezed out a penalty, found touch and won another penalty with 17 seconds left on the clock.Up stepped Mugford but he missed the shot at goal from wide on the right and Newcastle held on for victory.The Falcons led 10-3 at the interval, thanks to some supremely combative defence in five minutes of overtime.It matched a similar period at the start of the match in which Olympic silver medallist Watson made three classic breaks but lacked vital support and Sales defence was of the highest order with Laurence Pearce and Sharks skipper Josh Beaumont engineering turnovers.Scott Lawsons drive for the line from Watsons third foray might have led to a yellow card for hooker Rob Webber when he dived over the ball, but referee Greg Garner decided a penalty was sufficient and Mike Delany gave Newcastle a sixth-minute lead.AJ MacGinty was wide with a 10th-minute penalty as Newcastle pulled down a maul and they were certainly feeling the pressure and conceded a penalty at the scrum. Sale went to the corner where Beaumont and TJ Ioane both were close to crossing aand Newcastle strayed offside for MacGinty to kick the equalising penalty in the 21st minute.ddddddddddddByron Evans high tackle on Simon Hammersley gave Newcastle the chance to go to the corner and after a pulverising drive and another penalty, they lost their own throw only to turn the ball over on the 22. Delany then released Juan Pablo Socino, whose long pass saw Sinoti Sinoti hurtle over in the corner and Delany converted from the touchline.Sale came right back into the game almost immediately after the break with Leota scoring after a long curving run with the Falcons defence on autopilot and Mugfords conversion cut Newcastles lead to just three points before Delany extended it to 16-10 with a 51st-minute penalty when Sale struggled at the scrum.It may simply have been lack of concentration following a long delay for treatment to Falcons prop Taione Vea who was stretchered off with what looks to be a serious neck injury.But two more penalties -- and 10 metres for arguing -- quickly followed and Delany made it 19-10 in the 56th minute.Nev Edwards high tackle on Hammersley brought a warning from referee Garner to skipper Beaumont as the Sale penalty count mounted.Ironically, it was from Newcastle conceding a penalty which saw Sale find the corner and score a great try when it was recycled infield and Mugfords lovely grubber kick split the Newcastle defence for Byron McGuigans 70th-minute try which Mugford converted to make it 19-17 before that last-minute drama.
