  • Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall insists they will not attempt to head-hunt Dan Carter in Saturdays European Champions Cup final. Russell Canouse Jersey . New Zealand World Cup-winner Carter has driven Racing 92 to their first European final as the linchpin of the Parisian side.The 34-year-old will aim to dictate proceedings in Lyon on Saturday, but McCall promised his side will not waste energy chasing an elusive target in a game you can watch live on Sky Sports 2. Its a big, big, big mistake to think youre going to go and get Dan Carter, McCall said.Dan has been doing this for a very long time. So weve got to make sure that his influence in the game isnt huge, isnt unbelievably significant.If we can do that, it means our pack have got on top in the scrum, in the lineout. It means well have put a little bit more pressure on him than hes experienced before. Will Greenwood previews the Champions Cup final between Saracens and Racing 92. But if you run down his channel and think youre going to shake him up, youre not going to.Maxime Machenauds roaming threat from scrum-half has allowed Carter to span the full width of Racings inside back cordon, leaving the All Black great always at arms length from opposing forwards. Maxime Machenaud (C) often makes extra space for Carter to work in Leicester were unable to put in any meaningful hits on the playmaker in Racings 19-16 semi-final victory in Nottingham, a situation Saracens have since noted well.Machenauds unbelievably competitive, he gets his attack going, added McCall. He brings their big men into the game and someone were going to have to watch like a hawk.He and Carter work very well together, and Dan Carters an expert at picking his moment at when to involve himself, and usually its a pretty good involvement.Weve just got to make sure were really alive to every time that hes going to get the ball, kick and try to put us under some pressure.

PHOENIX -- Yovani Gallardo has always pitched well against Arizona. Home, away, doesnt matter. He has the Diamondbacks number. Gallardo outpitched Chase Anderson in seven strong innings to remain undefeated against Arizona, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday. "Sometimes you look at it as how this game is," Gallardo said of his track record against Arizona. "There are certain things like that I wish I could explain, but I just cant." A day after losing to Arizona on a walkoff hit, the Brewers beat the Diamondbacks for the third time in four games behind Gallardo (5-4). The right-hander entered the game with a 1.93 ERA against the Diamondbacks and lowered it by holding them to a run over seven innings. He improved to 7-0 in 10 career starts against Arizona and earned his 86th career win, tying Ben Sheets for fifth on Milwaukees all-time list. "Weve had him on the ropes several times, but his somehow wriggles out of it, but today he just kind of dominated us," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said of Gallardo. "There wasnt a lot of opportunities out there for us and when we had the opportunities we didnt do anything with them." Milwaukees Carlos Gomez had a run-scoring single in the eighth inning to extend his career high-hitting streak to 15 games and reached base for the 32nd straight game, the majors longest active streak. Francisco Rodriguez worked around a hit in the ninth inning for his majors-leading 23rd save this season and 327th career, moving past Roberto Hernandez for 14th all-time. Gallardo did most of the heavy lifting. Coming off two solid starts, he retired the first 10 batters he faced until Chris Owings blooped a single to right in the fourth inning. Owings reached third, but Gallardo stranded him there. The Diamondbacks had two hits to start the fifth inning and scored a run on Didi Gregorius grounder, but that was it off Gallardo. He alloweed five hits and struck out four, improving to 5-0 in six career starts at Chase Field. Brenden Aaronson Jersey. . "He gets to where hes throwing a lot of strikes and you know hes going his rhythm going then," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. Anderson (5-2) wasnt bad, either. He had a superb start to his major league career, becoming the first Diamondbacks rookie to win his first five starts. Even though he pitched well, his run came to an end in his last start, when he allowed two runs on four hits in five innings of a 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The right-hander was good again against the Brewers, holding them without a hit until Aramis Ramirez led off the fifth inning with a double. Lyle Overbay followed with a run-scoring double and Elian Herrera added an RBI single to put Milwaukee up 2-0. Ramirez made it 3-1 with a run-scoring single in the sixth after Jean Segura wound up on second with an infield single and a throwing error by Anderson. Anderson allowed two earned runs on five hits and struck out five in six innings. Hes allowed two earned runs or less in six of seven starts. "That was one of the better days Ive felt out there," Anderson said. "A couple of bloop hits, but limited the damage and felt good." Gomez struck out three times before hitting a run-scoring single in the eighth off Matt Stites, who made his major league debut. NOTES: Gregorius, a shortstop throughout his career, made his first career start at third base to give Martin Prado a rest. He was tested right away and made a nice play, snaring leadoff hitter Scooter Gennetts sinking liner. ...
