INDIANAPOLIS - Oscar and Eden Hazard scored first-half goals, leading Chelsea to a 2-0 victory over Inter Milan on Thursday night in a quarterfinal match at the Guinness International Champions Cup. Custom Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys . Despite not starting four of its stars that played in the Confederations Cup, including Brazils David Luiz and Spains Juan Mata, Chelsea nonetheless at times looked to be in midseason form in the exhibition match before a crowd of 41,983 at Lucas Oil Stadium. Hazards came on a penalty kick in the 29th minute. Although an exhibition, the inaugural eight-team, 12-game International Champions Cup is being staged to promote some of Europes best while offering the teams a chance to prepare for their league seasons that begin at the end of the month. "Oscar has been with us for five days because of the Confederations Cup," Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. "Weve worked a lot on our movement, and it will help us in difficult situations. Its good to see in matches what I see in training. I want him to be a top player, not just a top talent." Chelsea advances to play AC Milan in the semifinals Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Inter Milan will play Valencia, a 2-1 loser to AC Milan in its quarterfinal match last weekend, in the tournaments consolation semifinal earlier Sunday at MetLife. The other clubs in the tournament are Everton, Juventus, Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy - the only MLS team participating. Real Madrid beat the Galaxy 3-1 in their quarterfinal Thursday in Glendale, Ariz. The championship final is Wednesday in Miami Gardens, Fla. As the tournaments only Midwestern venue, the match was considered groundbreaking for a city that has struggled to support professional soccer in the past. It was the first soccer game ever held at Lucas Oil, the 5-year-old home stadium for the NFLs Indianapolis Colts. It was also the first time a natural grass surface was laid inside the stadium, thanks to more than 100,000-square feet of Kentucky Bluegrass that was trucked in last weekend. Indianapolis will give pro soccer another try next year with the Indy Eleven joining the North American Soccer League in 2014. The team will be Indys ninth pro or semi-pro team since 1973. On Thursday night, it proudly hung its banner in the middle of the Colts horseshoe on the north side of the stadium. "Its nice that people can come to downtown Indianapolis to see international quality soccer rather than have to go to New York, Chicago or Los Angeles," said Juergen Sommer, coach of the Indy Eleven. "People really get it. The fan base for soccer is undersold here." The match featured intrigue on the sidelines with Mourinho coaching against his former team for the first time since his two-year stint with Inter Milan from 2008-10. Mourinho, who managed Chelsea from 2004-07, returned to the Blues on June 2 after managing Spains Real Madrid the past three seasons. Soccer supporters in London are fond of the Portuguese coach, who dubbed himself "Special One" on the first day of his first stint with the team. He then led Chelsea to two Premier League titles and one FA Cup. They no doubt hope that Mourinho can bring the magic touch back to Chelsea this time around. Although it captured the Europa League title in May, one London daily newspaper labeled it "small beer" for a club that went into the 2012-13 season as defending Champions League winners. The Blues were eliminated in the tournaments group stage this past season. Mourinho also didnt start Fernando Torres and Cesar Azpilicueta of Spain. All players subbed into play in the second half. For new Inter coach Walter Mazzarri, who is trying to improve the Italian side after it finished ninth in the league last season, the game also gave him a chance to work recent acquisitions Mauro Icardi and Hugo Campagnaro into the team. Campagnaro was issued a red card in the 58th minute. "The first half was very good for both sides," Mourinho said. "The red card changed (the game) completely. Not good for them because they played with 10, and not good for us, because we played against 10." Chelsea dominated nearly from start to finish. Two minutes after Inters Fredy Guarin almost volleyed in a shot past Chelsea keeper Petr Cech, Chelsea went up 1-0 on a goal by Brazilian star Oscar in the 13th minute after he capitalized on teammate Victor Moses powerful run through the midfield. The pro-Chelsea crowd roared as Oscars shot settled into the top right-hand corner of the net after Moses slipped him the ball. Chelsea then went up 2-0 in the 29th minute on a penalty kick by Hazard. Mitchell Marner Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. Toronto Maple Leafs Hats .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. http:///...e-leafs-jersey-c-35/ . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. ANAHEIM -- Right-hander Jered Weaver continues his rugged struggle of a season when his Los Angeles Angels meet the Chicago White Sox in Sundays final game of their weekend series.As recently as 2014, Weaver was one of baseballs best. He shared first place in the American League that year with 18 victories and in the majors overall with 34 starts.Since then, however, assorted physical problems and decreasing velocity dramatically reduced Weavers effectiveness. Last season was the worst of his career; the right-hander compiled a 7-12 record and a 4.64 earned-run average. Until 2015, Weaver never won fewer than 11 games or finished with an ERA higher than 4.33.This season, Weaver matched last years victory total but is allowing opponents to bat .294 and is projected to finish with a career-worst 4.93 ERA. After collecting five quality starts in the first two months, Weaver has had just three since, though he conceded just one run, one walk and four hits in six innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on July 6 while striking out five in a 7-2 victory.I dont know if its ever easy, Weaver told Im just trying to locate pitches and keep those guys off balance.One constant in the midst of fluctuating success is Weavers personal tenacity.Jered competes, manager Mike Scioscia told after Weavers latest victory. Just having that element inside of him lets him go out with whatever his tools are and try to win.For the past two seasons, that tenacity provided the foundation for professional survival.About 80 percent of the league wouldnt have been throwing with what Ive been throwing the last couple of years, Weaver told MLB. Wendel Clark Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic. com.One of Weavers goals will be to extend Chicagos streak of consecutive innings without scoring. The White Sox enter Sundays game having not scored in 32 innings.Opposing Weaver will be right-hander Jacob Turner, who will be making his first major league start in two years. Turner was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte after Saturday nights 1-0 loss and replaces left-hander Carlos Rodon, who is on the disabled list with a sprained left wrist.Turner, who signed as a free agent in December, made 18 starts for Charlotte. Despite pitching a complete-game shutout, the 25-year-old owns a 4-7 record and a 4.71 ERA. In 107 innings, Turner has allowed 29 walks and 125 hits, including 10 home runs, while amassing 85 strikeouts.Before signing with the White Sox, Turner spent four seasons with the Detroit Tigers, Miami Marlins and Chicago Cubs. He won his last major league start Sept. 28, 2014 for the Cubs against the Milwaukee Brewers.Left-hander Chris Sale, who started for the American League in Tuesday nights All-Star Game and pitched one inning, would be pitching on four days rest had he received the start Sunday. But Ventura wanted to give Sale another day off. Sale will pitch Monday night in Seattle.I think they pitch harder in that game than they probably would in a normal game, said Ventura, a two-time All-Star. They definitely throw more fastballs than in a normal game. Thats part of the experience. I know it was only one inning but we wanted to make sure he had extended rest.
