ANAHEIM, Calif. Under Armour Basketball Shoes Online . -- Jered Weaver has one more start in the way before the real fun begins, and hes been waiting almost five years to get another chance for a World Series ring. In the meantime, Weaver earned his AL-leading 18th victory when the AL West champion Los Angeles Angels beat the Texas Rangers 8-5 on Saturday night. "Its the time of the year where everybody wants to extend their season, and were lucky enough to be able to be a part of that," Weaver said. "Its exciting for sure, but you try not to look too far ahead because weve still got some games to play. "I know from previous playoffs that its all about the team with the momentum. So we cant take these games for granted right now. Weve still got to go out there and produce and get some momentum going." Weaver is 11-2 in his last 18 starts and will make one more regular-season appearance before starting Game 1 of the AL division series next Thursday in his first post-season start since Game 3 of the 2009 ALCS. "I think that having some post-season experience is a plus," he said. "Its obviously been a long time for me, but Im sure Ill feel like Im 23 because of all the adrenaline and stuff. You just try to stay within yourself as much as possible and try to keep your team in the game -- just like you do during the season -- and hopefully the offence takes care of the rest." Albert Pujols reached the 100-RBI mark with a two-run homer and Mike Trout also hit a two-run shot, helping the Angels maintain their 2 1/2 game lead over Baltimore in the race for the best record in the majors. David Freese added a three-run homer in support of Weaver (18-8), who was charged with three runs and five hits in seven-plus innings. Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth for his career-high 39th save and 15th with the Angels. Colby Lewis (10-14) gave up eight runs -- seven earned -- and nine hits in five innings. The Rangers season-best seven-game winning streak came to a resounding end despite Adrian Beltres three doubles, which equaled a career high. Lewis is 0-4 with a whopping 11.51 ERA in his last four starts against the Angels. "I expected to perform a lot better than I did tonight -- plain and simple," he said. Trout made it 3-0 in the third with his 35th homer, after shortstop Elvis Andrus dropped Kole Calhouns popup in short centre field for his 18th error. The two RBIs increased Trouts career-high total to 109, two behind major league leader Adrian Gonzalez. In a span of just five pitches in the fifth, the Angels plated five more runs. Pujols drove Lewis 1-2 delivery off the rock pile in left-centre for his 519th homer, putting him within two of tying Ted Williams, Willie McCovey and newly inducted Hall of Famer Frank Thomas for 18th place on the career list. "I dont play for numbers, guys," Pujols said. "My goal is to help this organization win. And a lot of guys have been getting on base in front of me and giving me the opportunity to drive them in." Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar followed Pujols homer with singles, and Freese capped the five-run rally with his 10th homer, one more than he had last season in 138 games with St. Louis. The 2011 World Series MVP has 13 RBIs in his last 12 games. HALOS HARDWARE Garrett Richards was named the winner of the Nick Adenhart Award as the Angels top pitcher. He was 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 26 starts before he was shelved by a season-ending knee injury last month. POWER SHORTAGE If Beltre doesnt hit at least two home runs in Texas final eight games, it would be the first time since 1980 that the Rangers went an entire non-strike season without anyone on the roster hitting at least 20. Al Oliver and Richie Zisk led the way that year with 19 each.

Algeria, Russia set sights on knockout round (TSN 1050, TSN 690, TEAM 1410) Curitiba, Brazil - Russia and Algeria will close out the group stage of the World Cup on Thursday with a crucial Group H clash at the Arena da Baixada, with both sides hoping to secure a knockout round berth. Jullian Taylor Jersey . Algeria enters the match riding a wave of unexpected confidence after pummeling South Korea, 4-2, in Porto Alegre on Sunday. The Desert Foxes opened the scoring after 26 minutes as Carl Medjani sent a long ball over the top to the feet of striker Islam Slimani, who did well to split two South Korean defenders and touch it past goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong. Two minutes later the Algerians doubled their advantage when Abdelmoumene Djabou served a perfect corner kick into the penalty area where Halliche got to the ball ahead of an out-of-position Jung and nodded it home with pace. Djabou then made it 3-0 for Algeria seven minutes before the intermission when he found himself alone in the box to accept a square ball from Slimani and slide it home for a three-goal halftime lead. South Korea got back into the match five minutes into the second half when Son Heung-Min collected a long pass from Ki Sung-Yueng, turned and beat Algeria goalkeeper Rais MBolhi through the legs. But Algeria regained the three goal lead in the 62nd minute as Sofiane Feghouli and Yacine Brahimi worked a nice one-two on the edge of the penalty area to send Brahimi through on goal and he finished by ripping a strike under Jung. Again South Korea pulled one back through Koo Ja-Cheol, but it wasnt enough as the Desert Foxes held on for the win. Vahid Halilhodzics side can advance to the round of 16 on Thursday with at least a draw. "I would like to dedicate this victory to the fans who were here and the Algerian people back home who have waited a long time for this victory. It means a lot to us all," Halilhodzic said."Today the team played to its strengths. I told the players to keep it tight for the first 15 minutes and I felt that did extremely well and effectively in the first half - it was almost perfect. We slowed a little during the second half, why Im not sure. Now we have to try to get a good result against Russia and qualify for the round of 16. Anything is possible." Russia, meanwhile, faces an uphill climb to reach the knockout round following their 1-0 loss to Belgium in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday. The first 80 minutes of the match produced little in the way of offensive output for either side, but Divock Origi gave the match its one moment of quality two minutes from time to hand Belgium its second win in as many games. Chelsea star Eden Hazard set the scoring play in motion when he ook possession of the ball on the left wing and dribbled to the end line, where he pulled a pass back to Origi, who struck it first-time into the roof of the net past goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev. Russia needs to win to have any chance of advancing. A one-goal win for Russia means that South Korea would have to beat Belgium by three, while a two-goal margin for Russia makes them a near lock to advance. Anything less than a win, however, and Fabio Capellos team will be eliminated. "I still believe we have a chance, but we now have no choice but to beat Algeria," said Capello. "Today we went out to win the match, but we got caught on the counter-attack - its as simple as that." Jaquiski Tartt Jersey . 1.
