day a little disappointed but much calmer than he was a day earlier when he stepped into a race car for the first time in eight Antworten

INDIANAPOLIS -- Jeff Gordon typically would leave frustrated after qualifying 21st for a race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.In a substitute role driving for a crew he has never worked with before, he left the track Saturday a little disappointed but much calmer than he was a day earlier when he stepped into a race car for the first time in eight months.Gordon, filling in for Dale Earnhardt Jr.?(concussion-type symptoms) for the next two races, said he got loose going into Turn 1 in the second round of qualifying for the Brickyard 400, resulting in his starting spot in the middle of the 40-car field.Im much calmer than I was [Friday], Gordon said after his lap at 181.851 mph. Usually, my heart is beating more for qualifying than it is for practice. But that wasnt the case [in practice].I feel more relaxed and comfortable in the car.Defending winner Kyle Busch (184.634 mph) will start from the pole Sunday with his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Carl Edwards (184.547 mph) beside him.Tony Stewart (184.328 mph), competing in his final Brickyard 400 as he plans to retire after this season, will start third.Gordon thought his last Brickyard was last year, but now being thrust into the substitute role at Hendrick Motorsports has challenged the four-time Sprint Cup champion.I feel really good about the things we learned [Friday] at the end of practice, Gordon said. I would have liked to have started further forward. Weve got some work to do and I look forward to the challenge.A five-time Brickyard 400 champion, Gordon said he will keep his expectations realistic. He wont talk about potentially winning a record sixth race at Indianapolis.Its a steep learning curve to be off the track this long and jump in here, but luckily I have a great race car and great race team that is going to help me get through it, Gordon said.The car has good speed, Gordon said, and the one thing that doesnt change is his approach to the race.I drive the car into the corner and the car gives me feedback and if it feels good, I drive it harder, Gordon said. If it doesnt feel good, I find a way to manage it until we can make adjustments or I can make an adjustment. ... My goal is to make the car as fast as it can go.That goal is pretty standard. For Busch, he won his first pole at Indianapolis and had one of the cars to beat for the pole.We set the fast time in practice and that gave me a little extra vote of confidence, Busch said. You never know what happens overnight with guys making changes and adjustments. For us, it was really good to back that up.For the fans, it was probably more exciting to see the Indiana native Stewart having a good weekend in his last Brickyard experience. His year started with a broken back, and he missed eight races.The cars are just driving better, said Stewart, who is working with first-year crew chief Mike Bugarewicz. It seems like the communication between us each week is just getting easier and easier. Its hard when you spot these guys eight races at the beginning of the season to get caught up, but were making a good run at that.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins might want to consider starting their games closer to midnight.The Twins waited out a rain delay of more than two hours in the top of the inning in a 5-4 win against the Cleveland Indians at Target Field, wrapping up the victory shortly after 12:30 a.m. local time Sunday morning, when rookie outfielder Max Keplers comebacker to the mound with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 11th inning produced an error and allowed the winning run to score.It was adventurous, said Twins manager Paul Molitor. But he finished it off with a big hit to help us get the win.It was the third time in the last month the Twins have started a game on one day, finished it on the next while also playing a day game the following afternoon.So far, the Twins are 5-0 in those games and will look for their sixth win on Sunday.I told the guys before we went back out there, Weve been good in these situations, said Molitor. They came out with some energy and got it done.The loss dropped the American League Central Division-leading Indians to 3-5 against Minnesota this season; the Twins have the worst record in the American League and are 2-19 against every other team in the Central. Meanwhile, the Indians have posted a 24-7 mark against the rest of the division.Every game with these guys is a tug-of-war, said Indians manager Terry Francona. Some teams just play you tough.Cleveland willl send Josh Tomlin to the mound in search of his 10th victory of the season.dddddddddddd The right-hander will look to bounce back from his worst outing of the season his last time out against the Detroit Tigers on July 6.In a game the Indians lost 12-2, Tomlin was tagged for eight runs -- five of them earned -- on seven hits and a walk in just 4 2/3 innings of work.Tomlin has been good in two outings against the Twins this season, earning the victory each time out. He allowed five runs, four earned in 5 1/3 innings pitched at Target Field on April 27, but got enough offensive support in a 6-5 victory.He was better two weeks later, giving up three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings while striking out four.Cleveland has a 13-3 record in his 16 starts this season.Minnesota will counter with right-hander Kyle Gibson, who has been uneven in 10 starts this season. He didnt pick up his first victory until June 28. Despite the inconsistencies, the Twins have won three of his last four starts and were in line for a victory in the other before a late bullpen meltdown against the Texas Rangers his last time out on July 8, when he surrendered four runs in five innings.Gibsons 5.77 career ERA in seven starts against the Indians is his highest against any American League Central opponent.
