#1
MILAN, Italy -- Antonio Cassano scored his 100th Serie A goal as Parma salvaged a 1-1 draw against 10-man Bologna on Saturday. Bologna took the lead in the Emilia-Romagna derby in the 10th minute when Panagiotis Kone latched onto Rolando Bianchis ball over the defence and fired it past Antonio Mirante from 25 metres. Cassanos strike was even more spectacular as the forward volleyed an unstoppable effort into the top left corner. Bologna played almost the entire second half with 10 men after Frederik Sorensen was sent off following a second booking in the 52nd. Bologna almost snatched all three points when Kone curled a free kick just wide of the left upright nine minutes from time. Genoa and Torino also played out a 1-1 draw in an entertaining match at Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Torino started the brighter and almost took the lead in the opening minute when Omar El Kaddouris effort crashed off the inside of the post. El Kaddouri did score in the seventh minute, deflecting in Alexander Farneruds fierce 25-meter strike. Genoa also hit the woodwork early in the second half as Sime Vrsaljkos 30-meter thunderbolt thumped off the upright. Torino hadnt won at the Ferraris since 1981 and Genoa levelled in the 69th. Ioannis Fetfatzidis sent in a brilliant through-ball for Davide Biondini to fire across into the bottom right corner. Torino almost restored its lead moments later but Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin pulled off a fantastic save to deny first Alessio Cerci and then former Genoa striker Ciro Immobile from point-blank range. Genoa has gone five matches without defeat, to leave it seventh. Torino is level on points with 10th-placed Atalanta ahead of the rest of the weekends fixtures. Air Max Nz Sale .

The Indians placed Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right knee Tuesday. Masterson, the teams opening day starter, is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA. Manager Terry Francona talked with Masterson on Monday after the right-hander allowed five runs and six hits in two-plus innings against the New York Yankees. "Mastys first inclination was wanting to pitch through it, which we respect," Francona said. "The way it was going, though, we thought wed DL him and get him some treatment." Masterson made the All-Star team last season when he went 14-10 with three shutouts. The Indians considered him to be their staff ace going into the season, but Masterson hasnt won since June 8 and has pitched more than four innings once in his last five starts. Masterson has been dealing with a sore knee most of the season. He was pushed back a couple of days earlier this month, but his results havent improved. "Its hard to imagine it would help," Francona said of the injury. "Im not in his body. When a guys out there competing, I dont think they think about it a lot, but I dont think it helps." Masterson was pulled without retiring a batter in the third against New York. He walked three, hit a batter and rarely topped 90 mph in his 54 pitches, throwing only 24 strikes. He has given up 19 runs, 27 hits and 17 walks in 18 innings over his last five starts. Mastersons short outings have also also put a lot of stress on the bullpen.dddddddddddd Francona used five relievers Monday and six a week ago when Masterson didnt record an out in the fourth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers. "Maybe two weeks would be best for him and us because he was exiting early," Francona said. "Its hard to keep doing that and keep the bullpen not only healthy, but productive." Masterson is a free agent after this season. The two sides talked about a contract extension in spring training, but didnt reach an agreement. Corey Kluber is the only starter whos still in the rotation that opened the season. Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar are pitching at Triple-A Columbus while Carlos Carrasco was moved to the bullpen after four starts. The rotation includes Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin and T.J. House, who all began the season in the minors. The Indians are in third place in the AL Central with a 43-45 record and trail first-place Detroit by 6 1-2 games. "Youre going to need more than five starters," Francona said. "Its a difficult thing to build in depth. You walk a fine line there. I dont think our record is what we want it to be. You can whine about it or you can choose to try to figure out a way to win. McAllister or Salazar will be recalled to start Saturday against the Chicago White Sox. The Indians also recalled left-hander Nick Hagadone and catcher Roberto Perez from Columbus and optioned outfielder Tyler Holt to Triple-A. Right-hander Mark Lowe was designated for assignment.
