SYDNEY - It didnt take long for Oman coach Paul Le Guen to start touting Australia as the favourite to the win Asian Cup on home soil.Le Guens lineup lost 1-0 to 2002 World Cup semifinalist South Korea in its opening match, but crashed out of contention in the continental championship with a thumping 4-0 defeat to the Socceroos on Tuesday night.It was all but over by half time at Sydneys Olympic stadium. Matt McKay and Robbie Kruse scored in the first half and Mark Milligan made it 3-0 with a penalty just before the break. Tomi Juric added a fourth early in the second half to complete the scoring, although the Australians had a few more chances before full time. The result ensured Australia and South Korea, each with six points from two games, would progress to the quarterfinals from Group A.They were far better than us in each part of the game, Le Guen said of the Australians. They have power, they have impact and thats why they are favourites of the competition. Really they have a good balanced team.Even at the World Cup, although the results were not good, I think they are on the right track.The Australians earned plenty of praise at the World Cup in Brazil last year for their attacking style in narrow group-stage defeats to Chile and Netherlands, and one of Tim Cahills goals was rated among the best of the tournament. Coach Ange Postecoglou is pushing the attacking mentality as the way forward for his team, but it hadnt been getting obvious results until this weeks two big wins — starting with the 4-1 win over Kuwait in the opening game.Postecoglou, now with four victories from 14 matches, played down the suggestion that his Socceroos were the team to beat.Oh please, favourites? said Postecoglou, who for a long time has suggested that his team is vastly under-rated. But from my perspective, nothing changesWhether people think were favourites now or the team ranked 300 in world, doesnt make any difference to me. Black Friday Shoes Sale . The 49ers, 6-2 and riding a five-game winning streak following the bye week, also waived cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and activated cornerback Eric Wright from the reserve/non-football injury list.

Black Friday Shoes Store .com) - Devan Dubnyk stopped all 30 shots fired his way and made several big saves down the stretch for his third shutout of the season as the Minnesota Wild beat the Calgary Flames 1-0 on Tuesday.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Blue Jays opted to give veteran R.A. Dickey some extra rest after a groin injury knocked him out of his last start. The Cincinnati Reds usually cant get Johnny Cueto back out on the mound fast enough. The two six-game winners go head-to-head on Sunday afternoon in the finale of a three-game series at Cincinnatis Great American Ball Park. Dickey was previously in action last Saturday in Baltimore, exiting after 6 2/3 frames due to injury and taking a loss despite giving up just two earned runs. He was in line to start the opener of this set on Friday, but will now go on an extra three days of rest. The 39-year-old righty had a four-start unbeaten streak (2-0) snapped with the loss to the Orioles and is 6-5 on the year with a 4.08 earned run average. Dickey is 1-1 with a 4.82 ERA in three previous meetings with the Reds. Cueto, meanwhile, is 6-5 with a 1.92 ERA on the year and logged six scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 11. He then took on the rival Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday and did not factor into a 6-5 win despite giving up just two runs over six frames. The righty, though, did struggle by allowing seven hits and four walks while notching just two strikeouts. Still, Cueto sits at 6-5 with a 1.92 ERA on the year. Cueto, 28, beat Toronto on June 25, 2009 the only other time he faced the club, but did give up five runs over six frames of work. The Reds blew an early 8-0 lead in losing Friidays opener, but did not make the same mistake last night en route to an 11-1 triumph that evened the series.dddddddddddd Each of the Reds first seven hitters contributed an RBI, with Jay Bruce and Devin Mesoraco homering to help Cincinnati snap a two-game skid and win for the seventh time in 10 games. Mike Leake allowed one run on four hits with six strikeouts over eight solid innings to get the win. "What (Leake) did today by staying in the game for eight innings and giving us a chance to win the game, was save our bullpen," said Reds manager Bryan Price. "It was hopefully something that will pay dividends (Sunday)." J.A. Happ was roughed up for eight runs -- seven earned -- over four innings of work for the Blue Jays, who have lost four of their last five and fell to 3-6 on a 10-game road trip. Like Dickey on Friday, the Blue Jays will give shortstop Jose Reyes some precautionary rest today after he fouled a ball off his leg in the fifth inning of Saturdays loss. Reyes came out of the game and is day-to-day. "I have to ice it like three more times tonight and see how it feels tomorrow," Reyes said on Torontos official website. "Right now its a little bit sore, but its not a big deal. "(Manager John Gibbons) went to my locker and said he was going to give me the day off. Its OK, Ill take that and see what happens." Toronto is 9-5 versus Cincinnati dating back to the 2003 campaign. ' ' '
