Team news:Its almost a cliche now but rarely have we seen a closer NRL competition than this year. Nike Shox Shoes Outlet .When Melbourne and Cronulla kick-off on Saturday night to decide the 2016 minor premiership, there will have been 372 NRL games that have come and gone and still it boils down to the final round to decide top spot after the regular season.Cronulla will assume the mental edge after downing the Melbourne 14-6 when the two sides last met in round four and a timely return to the winners list against the Roosters will lift confidence.History weighs heavily in favour of Melbourne, the Storm having won two-thirds of the encounters between the clubs while they havent lost to the Sharks at home since 2008.Melbourne Storm:?1. Cameron Munster, 2. Suliasi Vunivalu, 3. Will Chambers, 4. Ryan Morgan, 5. Marika Koroibete, 6. Blake Green, 7. Cooper Cronk, 8. Jesse Bromwich, 9. Cameron Smith, 10. Tim Glasby, 11. Kenny Bromwich, 12. Tohu Harris, 13. Dale Finucane. Interchange: 14. Felise Kaufusi, 15. Christian Welch, 16. Jordan McLean, 17. Ben Hampton, 21. Matt White.Cronulla Sharks:?1. Ben Barba, 2. Sosaia Feki, 3. Jack Bird, 4. Gerard Beale, 5. Valentine Holmes, 6. James Maloney, 7. Chad Townsend, 8. Andrew Fifita, 9. Michael Ennis, 10. Matt Prior, 11. Luke Lewis, 12. Wade Graham, 13. Paul Gallen. Interchange: 14. Joseph Paulo, 15. Chris Heighington, 16. Jesse Sene-Lefao, 17. Jayson Bukuya.What they said:These guys (Cronulla) are very good at being aggressive and trying to put you off your game, we just cant allow that to happen. - Cameron Smith, Storm captain.Youve just got to prepare for a tough game ... theyre going to come down here and play an aggressive style so weve got to match that. - Jesse Bromwich, Storm prop.It is always good fun coming up against quality opposition so Saturday night should be a good test. - Blake Green, Storm five-eighth.Theyre always hard down there. Their record over the past 10 years shows theyre a tough team and weve got now doubt how hard its going to be for us. - Wade Graham, Sharks forward.Key head-to-head - Cameron Smith vs Michael EnnisTwo of the craftiest players in the NRL and the two players that hold the key to victory for their respective teams.As dummy-halves, they will have their hands on the ball more often than most and that alone makes them a major threat to the opposition.Smith is arguably the smartest brain in the competition; he understands the game better than any other. Hes neither fast, big and is no great stepper, but he has an ability to influence referees as well as mesmerise and manipulate opposing defences with his scheming.Michael Ennis has similar qualities and although not as polished in each area, he is a genuine competitor that will do anything to win for his teammates. He is a world-class niggler and has the ability to unsettle the opposition with some subtle actions or a few well chosen words.Key Stats:The Storm have won 12 of their previous 15 matches against the Sharks.The Sharks have won just four matches against the Storm in Melbourne.The Storm boast a strong head to head record over the Sharks - winning 20 of 30 matches.The Storm are coming off a defeat to Brisbane but are yet to lose consecutive games this season.UBET verdict:Melbourne Storm ($1.45) v Cronulla Sharks ($2.75), AAMI Park, Saturday at 7.30pmThe Sharks got back into the winners list last week but the worry is they did give the Roosters 12 points start.The Storm were beaten last week, but the minor premiership awaits the winner, so there is plenty on the line.Cronulla defeated Melbourne the last time they met but all of the early money is on Melbourne.Weather:Sydney is expecting a chilly temperature of 11 degrees by kick-off with only a 10 percent chance of rain.Prediction:The finals start a week early for these two sides and Melbourne have too much experience in this area for Cronulla.Its no secret that Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk are key for the Storm - both have regularly shown at club, Origin and international level that the bigger the game, the better they play and this is the type of environment they enjoy most.The Sharks have had a fantastic season but I still have my doubts that they can find another gear required for finals football and its a quality theyll need to show against the Storm on Saturday.After a month without a win, Paul Gallens return from injury made a noticeable difference to Cronullas physicality and composure. The Sharks are a huge chance of claiming their first minor premiership since 1999 but I am just leaning towards the Storm on this occasion because of the Smith/Cronk factor, their superior experience and the home ground advantage.Tip: Melbourne by 8 Air Zoom Pegasus 31 . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. Nike Shox Nz .

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- For the second time in the series, Seattle Mariners reliever Nick Vincent couldnt get Albert Pujols in a big situation.Two nights after giving up a homer to the Angels slugger, Vincent intentionally walked Mike Trout in the eighth inning before Pujols hit a two-run double to lead Los Angeles to a 6-4 victory over the Mariners on Thursday night.Pujols hit extended the lead to 5-2, and the Angels scored again later in the inning.We really needed a shutdown inning there to be able to get back in the ninth and it didnt happen, Mariners manager Scott Servais said.

Servais was hoping to see the results of a session with pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre but instead saw Vincent struggle with mechanical issues.Hes not real crisp, theres not a whole lot of life to the ball right now, Servais said. Hes feeling for it a little bit right now. Hes done a good job for us all year and we certainly need him down the stretch.Fernando Salas gave up a two-run homer to Seattles Adam Lind in the ninth, but got Leonys Martin and Shawn OMalley on grounders to end the game.Matt Shoemaker (7-13) limited the Mariners to two earned runs -- on solo homers to Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz -- and five hits. He struck out five and walked two.Its a tough lineup for him with a lot of left-handed hitters who can drive the ball, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. He was pitching with his back against the wall most of the game until we broke it open so thats a good outing for Matt.Hisashi Iwakuma (14-8) allowed three runs and six hits over seven innings, snapping a streak of three straight wins. Seattle remained 2 1/2 games behind Boston for the second AL wild card.Iwakuma was right there, Servais said. He certainly threw the ball well tonight. He gave us every opportunity and kept us in the game. I was really happy with his outing.The Mariners, however, couldnt take advantage of their opportunities at the plate. Seattle left four runners on in scoring position, going 0 for 8 in those situations.Yunel Escobar, who had his second five-hit game of the season on Wednesdday, had three more hits and scored twice for Los Angeles. Nike Shox Clearance.

Pujols then had his big hit to put Los Angeles up by three.Andrelton Simmons made it to second when Pujols was caught in a rundown but Vincent then gave up a single to Nick Buss and was removed for lefty Vidal Nuno.Jefry Martes pinch-hit single scored Simmons to make it 6-2.Cano homered for the 26th time in the first inning. It was his 10th home run on the first pitch, the most in baseball. Cruzs 31st home run in the sixth inning cut Los Angeles lead to 3-2. Hes now tied with Chicagos Todd Frazier for third in the AL.The Angels scored two runs off of Iwakuma in the first inning and Jett Bandy hit his eighth home run in the fifth inning to make it 3-1.It was a first-pitch slider that I threw for a strike, Iwakuma said. It was out over the fat part of the plate and he got to it.TRAINERS ROOMMariners: LHP James Paxton threw a bullpen on Thursday and reported no effects of the forearm tightness that landed him on the 15-day disabled list a day prior.
