Dutch, Costa Ricans advance to quarterfinal match

RIO DE JANEIRO — Regulation time doesn’t seem to mean much at this stage, judging by the way Netherlands, Costa Rica and Brazil have advanced through the first of the World Cup knockout rounds.

The Dutch needed a penalty deep in stoppage time to seal a 2-1 comeback win over Mexico and advance to a match against a Costa Rica lineup that beat Greece on penalties later Sunday to reach the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time. The Costa Ricans had to play for almost an hour with 10 men and just had the legs to win 5-3 on penalties after the match finished level at 1-1 after extra time.

That was the second penalty shootout of the weekend, following Brazil’s narrow win over Chile on Saturday.

In oppressive heat at Fortaleza, a Dutch attack that scored five goals against 2010 champion Spain in its opening game was on the verge of a second-round exit until finding a way past Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa in the 88th minute.

Once they did, the turnaround happened quickly. Wesley Sneijder’s bullet-like strike canceled out Giovani Dos Santos’ 48th-minute opener for Mexico. Klaas Jan Huntelaar sealed the win with a calmly-taken penalty late in stoppage time after Mexico captain Rafael Marquez took down Robben in the area.

The veteran Dutch forward had been dangerous in attack but all his efforts had been fruitless, as had his frequent tumbles and appeals for penalties and free kicks.

“Unbelievable,” Robben said. “Five minutes from full time, we were out.”

It was unbelievable for Mexico coach Miguel Herrera, too. The effusive coach was mystified that the penalty was awarded by referee Pedro Proenca, disputing the contact that resulted in Robben sprawling on the pitch.

“Today, it was the man with the whistle who eliminated us from the World Cup,” Herrera said. “We ended up losing because he whistled a penalty that did not exist.

“I repeat this because (Robben) dived three times. The referee should have cautioned him. If that had happened, Robben would have been cautioned or even sent off.”

SEATTLE — Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon has run out of superlatives to describe Felix Hernandez.

The Mariners ace allowed just one hit over eight innings while striking out nine and Robinson Cano backed him with a 2-run homer as Seattle earned a 3-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

"Felix is great. I don't have the adjectives to explain it anymore. It's just unbelievable," McClendon said.

SAN FRANCISCO — Homer Bailey heard frequent reminders that he had a no-hit bid in progress. Not anyone on the Cincinnati bench mentioned it, however.

"I wasn't really thinking about it, other than the fan just above our dugout who kept yelling at me about it," Bailey said. "That was nice of him."

Bailey made a strong bid for yet another no-hitter, shutting down San Francisco until Buster Posey's 2-out single in the seventh inning and pitching the Reds past the Giants 4-0 Sunday.

Keselowski hungry for another NASCAR championship

SPARTA, Ky. — Brad Keselowski will have to fine-tune his victory celebrations after a shattered champagne bottle left him with a bloodied and bandaged right hand.

The upside is he might get more chances to polish his post-race revelry as he pursues his second Sprint Cup Series championship in three years.

Already locked into the Chase with a Las Vegas victory and a solid string of top-5s, Keselowski delivered his most dominant run at Kentucky Speedway. He started from the pole and led 199 of the 267 laps en route to his second win this season.

The Penske Racing driver heads to Daytona International Speedway fourth in points and showing the form that carried him to the 2012 championship. Missing last year's Chase also seems to have made Keselowski wiser — Saturday night notwithstanding.
