Sao Paulo, Brazil (SportsNetwork. Chicago White Sox Jerseys .com) - Nico Rosberg claimed his 10th pole of the 2014 Formula One season after beating his Mercedes teammate and championship rival, Lewis Hamilton, by a slim margin in Saturdays qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix. Rosberg topped Hamilton for the pole with a lap in 1 minute, 10.023 seconds, which was only 0.033 seconds quicker than Hamiltons lap. Rosberg also broke the track qualifying record time of 1:10.646 here at the Interlagos circuit, set by Brazilian Rubens Barrichello in 2004. Heading into Sundays 71-lap Brazilian GP -- the penultimate race of the season -- Rosberg trails Hamilton in the world championship standings by 24 points. Hamilton has won the last five grand prix -- Italy, Singapore, Japan, Russia and the United States. Rosberg has been perfect this weekend in Brazil. He topped the time charts in the first two practice sessions, held on Friday, and again in final practice, which ran prior to qualifying. Rosberg was fastest in all three rounds of qualifying. A total of 75 points are up for grabs in the last two races. The winner of the Brazilian GP will receive 25 points, while the winner of the Nov. 23 season- ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will collect 50. Abu Dhabi will award double the amount of points for drivers and teams. Felipe Massa, a Brazilian, qualified third in front of his home crowd with a lap in 1:10.247. Massas teammate, Valtteri Bottas, took the fourth spot, followed by Jenson Button from McLaren and Red Bulls Sebastian Vettel, the four-time F1 world champion and winner of last years Brazilian GP. McLarens Kevin Magnussen qualified seventh, while Fernando Alonso from Ferrari, Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo and Alonsos teammate, Kim Raikkonen, completed the top-10. For the second grand prix in a row, the field will feature 18 cars instead of 22 since Caterham and Marussia are both missing the race due to their current financial issues. Marussia ceased its operations earlier this week. Harold Baines Jersey . - Maxence Parrot of Bromont, Que. Tim Anderson Jersey .

Once again, the third baseman delivered in a big spot. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting with a two-run homer to help back Wily Peraltas solid start, and the Brewers extended their winning streak to seven with a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. At 8-2, the Brewers are off to their best start since opening with 13 wins in 1987. "Everythings clicking. Well continue to grind this thing out as best as we can, but were doing a lot of good things," manager Ron Roenicke said. Ramirezs clutch hitting is at the top of the list. His 421-foot homer with two outs in the fourth gave the Brewers a 2-0 lead against Francisco Liriano, who had befuddled the Brewers with his slider. Ramirez is hitting .727 (8 for 11) with runners in scoring position through the seasons first 10 games. "I would say thats part of job -- Im a cleanup hitter driving in runs, so I have to concentrate a little harder when I have guys in scoring position," Ramirez said. Milwaukee missed his bat for stretches of the 2013 season, when he was bothered by a left knee injury. Now, the Brewers have their cleanup hitter back, along with No. 3 hitter Ryan Braun, who returned from a 65-game suspension that following baseballs investigation of a Florida anti-aging clinic. The Brewers added two more runs in the fifth on a solo shot by Mark Reynolds and a two-out single from Carlos Gomez. "You cant make too many mistakes in the big leagues. I was trying to go up and in and it went middle-in," Liriano said. "I made two mistakes and you cant make those kinds of mistakes at this level." Liriano (0-2) struck out seven over six innings. Peralta (1-0) allowed four hits in seven innings, but gave up a two-run homer to Neil Walker in the seventh. Francisco Rodriguez struck out the side in the ninth for his third save. Milwaukee has been an earlly-season surprise after sweeping through three-game sets at Boston and Philadelphia with a . Derek Holland Jersey. 320 batting average. The formula of solid hitting and excellent starting pitching carried over into Friday after Peralta struck out four and got help from Reynolds with two nice plays at first on hard-hit shots. Pittsburgh didnt get a runner past second base until Walker homered in the seventh. Andrew McCutchen had reached second twice on two-out steals, but Peralta retired cleanup hitter Pedro Alvarez each time to end the inning, including a strikeout on a slider in the sixth. McCutchen was lifted following his eighth-inning at-bat after telling manager Clint Hurdle he may have hurt an ankle. The 2013 NL MVP appeared to be walking around in the clubhouse afterward without a limp. "I had the trainer look at him and didnt think it was worth having him try to press on from there," Hurdle said. Milwaukee entered with a major league-leading 1.95 ERA, an impressive mark given that the team has played three games each in Fenway Park and Citizens Bank Park. Brewers starters were at 2.44, with the bullpen at a minuscule major league-best 0.98. That mark only improved after relievers Jim Henderson and Rodriguez shut down the Pirates in order during the final two innings. Liriano dominated early, keeping hitters off balance with his slider. He breezed through the first three innings with five strikeouts on 32 pitches. NOTES: The Pirates entered having started the season by winning three straight series for the first time since 1992. ...
