WINNIPEG -- Jennifer Jones was surprised twice at Wednesdays Canadian Olympic curling trials. First, the veteran Winnipeg skip watched as defending Canadian champion Rachel Homans last rock draw attempt was heavy, giving Jones a steal in the 10th end and 7-6 victory. The win put the four-time Canadian champion in sole possession of first place with a 5-1 record. What Jones didnt know was the win also gave her a bye into Saturday nights final, where the winner will represent Canada at next years Olympics in Sochi, Russia. "Are we? Are we in the final?" Jones asked after a reporter told her she was a game away from the Olympics. When the answer was yes, the usually cool skip was thrilled. "Oh, I had no idea. Yah. Thats awesome," Jones said, clapping her hands. Jones, whos making her third attempt at playing in an Olympics, is supported by third Kaitlyn Lawes, second Jill Officer, lead Dawn McEwen and alternate Kirsten Wall. Fellow Winnipegger Chelsea Carey also had the 7,343 fans at MTS Centre cheering as she grabbed second place (4-2) after defeating Val Sweeting of Edmonton 6-4. Ottawas Homan, Sweeting, Ontarios Sherry Middaugh and Heather Nodohin from Edmonton share third with 3-3 records. Middaugh beat Renee Sonneberg 7-6, dropping the Grande Prairie, Alta., skip to 1-5. The second- and third-place finishers will play the semifinal Friday night for the chance to face Jones. Homan and Jones met in this years Scotties Tournament of Hearts final and it looked like Homan was going to take the Trials re-match. Jones was leading 3-1 after the fourth end, but Homan scored three to go ahead 4-3 at the break and then stole a point in the sixth after Jones missed a double takeout. But Jones, the 2008 world champion, bounced back in the seventh end, drawing right onto the button for two and a 5-5 tie. With Homan leading 6-5 in the ninth and Jones with the hammer, the veteran was forced to draw for one and give Homan the hammer. However, Homan was heavy with her shot and Jones counted the one for the victory. "We did everything we could. We anticipated the fudge (slow ice) and it just wasnt there," Homan said. "Im really proud of my team. We had a heck of a game and we deserved that win, but thats all right, they got away with one and well get them back."

Hardy finally got in on the fun Saturday, against a likely opponent.TORONTO – Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is still waiting for his first win under Major League Baseballs new challenge system; the skipper is 0-3 in the regular season, 0-6 including Grapefruit League play. Still, hes a supporter. "I think in the long run it will be good," said Gibbons. Gibbons didnt challenge a play in Wednesday nights win over the Astros, which, upon further review, may have been overturned. Ryan Goins was picked off first base in the sixth inning but it appeared first baseman Marc Krauss glove swept the dirt and tagged Goins high on the shoulder after the runner had touched the bag. The Blue Jays didnt have access to all replay angles; the angles they had were inconclusive. Gibbons has previously expressed regret that the challenge system has sapped the intensity of manager/umpire arguments. Hes worried about the in-game delays and the effect on pace of play. Rather than just complaining, Gibbons proposes a solution. "Keep it the way it is but dont give the teams the benefit of being able to look at it behind the scenes," he said. "I think if, itd be like the old days, you could go out and argue if you think the guy missed it that bad you go out and argue. Of course theyre not going to look at it. This way, then they can say, Okay, you think I missed it that bad, check it out. I think what happens when you have the ability to look at it behind the scenes, you can go out there on every close play there is. "In a lot of ways youre guessing. I think that slows the game down. If youre that serious about a particular call and you think he missed it, roll the dice without the benefit of looking at it." Gibbons incorrectly challenged a call in the fifth inning of Thursday nights game against Houston when the replay system confirmed Melky Cabrera was out on a bang-bang play at first base. WAGNERS LONG DAY Neil Wagner threw two scoreless innings in Torontos 7-3 win over Houston on Wednesday night. It was the culmmination of a long day of travel for Wagner, who was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.dddddddddddd Wagner was in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where the Bisons were getting ready to play the LeHigh Valley Ironpigs. He took an hour and a half taxi ride to the Philadelphia airport, flew to Toronto and arrived at the stadium 10 minutes before first pitch. "It was actually just kind of easy," said Wagner. "I just woke up, did my normal thing in the morning and then instead of going through the normal pre-game routine I was just travelling, got here and I was able to play a little catch." Wagner got his arm loose playing catch with left fielder Melky Cabrera at the start of each defensive inning. Casey Janssen and J.A. Happ are both expected to come off the disabled list sooner rather than later, which will create a logjam in the bullpen. Wagner is in his final option year, the reason he got sent down last month, and knows he could again fall victim to the business of the game. "Options are the one thing for free in this game that you dont want," said Wagner. "I cant control having them, I cant give them to other people so I have them and if I get optioned against at some point, so be it. Just keep doing what I do and hopefully at some point, be back." DELABAR RESTS Reliever Steve Delabar was in good humour one day after taking a line drive off the outside of his right leg, below the knee. The ball ricocheted to Edwin Encarnacion at first base, who stepped on the bag for the easy out. "That was the plan," said Delabar. "When I came out of the bullpen they said, if you get hit with a line drive make sure your leg is angled." Delabar is using the RICE treatment method with the bruising: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. While Delabar wont pitch on Thursday, he doesnt expect to miss any time. "I could go, yes," said Delabar. "But I think theyre going to be cautious with it." ' ' '
