Australia are hopeful that key fast bowler Mitchell Starc will be fit for the start of the home summer despite suffering a deep laceration to his left shin during a training mishap on Thursday. Dale Murphy Jersey . Starc collided with some training equipment during Australias practice session at Hurstville Oval in Sydney on Thursday and was taken by ambulance to St George Hospital, where he underwent surgery and received approximately 30 stitches.He will remain in hospital for the next few days and will use an extension brace in the coming weeks until his stitches are removed. However, Cricket Australias chief medical officer, Dr John Orchard, who was at the ground and accompanied Starc to hospital, said that unless Starc suffered any complications he would hopefully remain on track to play Australias first Test of the summer.Australias selectors had already announced that Starc would be rested from the ODI tour of South Africa, which starts later this month, in an effort to ensure he was fresh for the home Tests against South Africa and Pakistan. The first Test, against South Africa at the WACA, is still seven weeks away.Mitchell was taken to St George hospital in an ambulance this afternoon suffering a deep laceration to his left shin after colliding with some training equipment, Dr Orchard said. Fortunately there were no bone fractures or tendon damage to his leg and he underwent surgery this afternoon to clean the wound and received approximately 30 stitches.He will remain in hospital for the next few days to minimise movement to his leg and will use an extension brace for the next two to three weeks until his stitches are removed. At this stage, barring any complications, we are hopeful he is on track to play at the start of the Australian summer. R.A. Dickey Jersey . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. Kurt Suzuki Jersey . The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. http://www.thebravesteamshop.com/Braves-Orlando-Cepeda-Kids-Jersey/ .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky looks to get even on many fronts against Vanderbilt.The Wildcats (2-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) get another crack at reaching .500 and aim to finish the deal on Saturday against the Commodores (2-3, 0-2 SEC) after missing opportunities to do so last November in Nashville. That 21-17 loss -- in which Vanderbilt made two goal-line defensive stands and scored a trick-play touchdown -- was one of six defeats in seven contests down the stretch that cost Kentucky a chance to become bowl eligible.Wildcats coach Mark Stoops acknowledged Monday that the defeat would bother him for the rest of his life but quickly added that this is a new season. Getting halfway toward a postseason berth could help lessen some bad memories.That game last year really hurt the team a lot, Kentucky defensive end/linebacker Denzil Ware said. We really want this win.Meanwhile, Vanderbilt seeks its first SEC win.The Commodores had their chances last week against then-No. 23 Florida, outgaining the Gators 265-236. But two turnovers and two sacks culminated in a 13-6 loss, their latest in a recent string of close defeats against Florida.Narrow losses have been the story for Vandy in SEC play this season, a trend the Commodores hope to end against Kentucky and provide their first league road win since 2013.It just lets us know that were there, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said of his team, which has lost by nine combined points. This team hasnt been jaded at all. ... I believe that this group fully expects to play well this weekend.---Other things to watch as Vanderbilt and Kentucky look to get into the win column:DEFENSIVE PROGRESS: Despite yielding 488 yards in last weeks 34-6 loss at No. 1 Alabama, Kentucky took heart in holding the Crimson Tide to a season-low in points (a fumble was returned for one score) and keeping an opponent below 500 yards for a second straight gamme. Tom Glavine Jersey. . Though the Wildcats still rank last in the SEC at 468 yards allowed per game, defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot saw hope in making the nations top team work harder than expected. The more pressure situations you can put them in, the better theyll perform, he said.RUNNING BACK MATCHUP: The game pits two of the SECs top-five rushers in Vanderbilt junior Ralph Webb -- whose 582 yards lead the conference -- and Kentuckys Stanley Boom Williams (486). Both backs broke 100 yards last year in Nashville and figure to play key roles again on Saturday. Webb rushed for 110 yards against Florida, while Williams seeks to rebound from running nine times for just 22 yards at Alabama.BALL PROTECTION: Kentuckys minus-7 turnover margin ranks last in the SEC and last weeks loss typified the Wildcats struggles. Quarterback Stephen Johnson fumbled three times while being sacked and lost two of them, with Alabama returning one 55 yards for a touchdown. Stoops believes that Johnson will bounce back and put ball-security issues behind him, which is necessary against a Vandy squad thats plus-3 with six fumble recoveries.VISORED UP: Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur will wear a shield on his helmet after being poked in the right eye in last weeks loss to Florida. Shurmur, whose eye remained red Tuesday, tried to argue his way back onto the field against the Gators. Shurmur has thrown for 696 yards with three TDs and three interceptions this season. His sight is good, just for protective purposes were putting a shield on him just so it doesnt happen again, Mason said.---AP College Football: collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Gary B.
