Kent 575 (Northeast 190, Dickson 81, Denly 78, Stevens 63, Blake 61, Briggs 5-169) lead Sussex 333 (Taylor 142*, Wright 60, Nash 55) by 242 runsScorecard New Zealand Test batsman Ross Taylor proved an immovable rock at the Nevill Ground hitting an unbeaten 142 as Sussex were dismissed for 333 on a day of cut and thrust under the sun. Brian Burns Youth Jersey .Kent will go into the final day of this Specsavers County Championship clash holding a 242-run lead and with the option to enforce the follow-on and push for their third win of the Division Two campaign.But it was the former Blackcaps Test skipper, Taylor, who batted a shade under six hours on the hottest day of the year, who made Kent work hardest. In praise of his team-mates work ethic, Sussex opener Chris Nash, said: Ross has been brilliant for us in all formats. Hes won three T20s for us off his own back and in four-day cricket hes shown tremendous application.He leaves us at the end of the week to go off for a Test series with South Africa and its perfect timing for him that he goes with a 140 under his belt. Were chuffed to bits for him and we all hope hell come back to Sussex at some time soon.As for his early morning battle with Kents South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada, who looks set to extend his battle with Taylor in the Test arena later in the month, Nash added: He tested us all with the new ball, hit good areas and extracted everything he could out of the new ball and a pretty dead pitch.When hes been on hes been very threatening. He was fast with the new ball and then, when he came back with the older ball, he got that reversing. It was really good fun to try and get through it. It really gets your beans going, because you realise you are facing one of the top young bowlers in the world. On a quick wicket hed be really hard work.Rabada, who bagged three for 81 on the fairly lifeless Nevill pitch, said: A lot of the guys are exhausted, that was a hot day wherever you might be in the world. We fought very hard and tomorrow well be looking to finish these guys off. Theres a bit of turn for the spinners, and some footmarks, so hopefully they can create problems.This has been a magnificent effort by the team and everyone bowled well today and played their part. Were giving it our best shot and even though some complained about the heat, it was all in good spirits, it was all banter. When we have to do the business and execute our skills we will and hopefully we can come out tomorrow fully rested and blow them away.Taylor teamed up with England T20 star Luke Wright to add 114 in 34 overs either side of lunch before Rabada broke the stand with the second new ball. Swishing outside off stump and on the back-foot, Wright edged to Kents stand-in keeper Callum Jackson to make it 219 for four.Ben Brown sidled out but, with his score on five, proffered no shot to a Rabada length-ball to go leg before and give the 21-year-old his third wicket.Just before a delayed tea, Chris Jordan (7) lent back aiming to force one from Darren Stevens through the covers only to edge to James Tredwell at second slip.Six wickets down at tea, Sussex did their utmost to bat out the session, losing their last man in the final over of the day. Will Beer was run out by a direct hit by Stevens from mid-off and, after taking a fearful blow on the helmet from a Rabada bouncer, Danny Briggs was caught behind off James Tredwell who, together with Imran Qayyum, polished off the innings with lbw decisions.Having resumed on their overnight total of 69 for one - a first innings deficit of 506 - Sussex suffered their first casualty of the day after half-an-hour when Nash fell for 55.Moments after posting a 128-ball 50 with nine fours, the veteran right-hander was pinned on the back foot by a Rabada off-cutter that appeared to keep low. Indian umpire Virendra Sharma, officiating in the game as part of an ECB exchange scheme, duly raised his finger for the first time in the match.Rabada was rested after a morning stint of 5-3-7-1 and replaced at The Pavilion End at The Nevill Ground by Mitch Claydon. He struck in the 51st over to remove Luke Wells for 22. Looking to square drive, the youngster found a thick inside edge to drag the ball onto his own leg stump. Donte Jackson Womens Jersey .

Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers.SAN DIEGO, California - Edwin Encarnacion was at third base on Friday night as the Blue Jays opened a three-game series against the Padres. With the absence of Brett Lawrie, on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle, and with the designated hitter spot out of play under National League rules, Encarnacions move to third opens up first base for Adam Lind. Look for a similar lineup on Sunday against the Padres and on Tuesday in San Francisco, when the Jays are scheduled to face right-handed starters. The Giants have yet to determine who will pitch on Wednesday. "I think its going to be fine," said third base coach Luis Rivera, who doubles as the clubs infield instructor. "He takes ground balls at first base every day. Its a different angle but hes taking ground balls is the thing. He took ground balls (Thursday,) he took about 30 ground balls, maybe a little bit more than that. He threw to first base, he felt comfortable, he was moving his feet well like hes doing at first base and he made all good throws to first. So thats a good thing." Encarnacion was a third baseman when he began his major league career with the Cincinnati Reds. Since his trade to Toronto, for Scott Rolen on July 31, 2009, Encarnacion has been the Jays third baseman in 174 games. It was a struggle, both with the glove and the throw across the diamond. Encarnacions made 34 errors playing third in Toronto. At his low point, in 2010, Encarnacion was designated for assignment with the prevailing belief that his struggles in the field were affecting his hiitting. Brian Burns Panthers Jersey. It was a perfect storm. These are different times. "Hes way more confident now than he used to be," said Rivera. "He doesnt have to worry about being sent down or anything else that was going on at that time. He is very comfortable now, hes doing a great job, hes swinging the bat, hes catching the ball at first base so his confidence is high and he knows hes not going to be staying there. Its just going to be a few days and hes comfortable with that, hes fine with that, whatever the team needs hes going to do it for us." The early returns on Friday night were positive. With one out in the first, Padres right fielder Chris Denorfia laid a down a bunt toward third. Encarnacion charged, barehanded the ball and made the off-balance throw to first. In the fourth, Encarnacion hit his club-leading 15th home run. MORROW UNCERTAIN FOR SUNDAY Brandon Morrows forearm strain is threatening to keep him out of his next scheduled start, Sunday against the Padres. "Morrow is up in the air for Sunday," said manager John Gibbons. "Hes feeling a little bit better but, two days away, I dont know. I havent had a chance to talk to the trainers and the pitching coach just yet but its dicey." Morrow went out to play long toss on Friday afternoon but shut down the session early. The 28-year-old removed himself from Tuesdays game against the Braves after only two innings, complaining of soreness in his forearm. On Wednesday, Morrow told TSN.ca he would argue his case to make Sundays start. ' ' '
