MONTREAL -- Next week, for the first time in 40 years of ATP rankings, there will be no American men in the top 20. Thats because John Isner, who is 20th this week, is assured of dropping lower after losing Tuesday in the first round of the Rogers Cup to Canadian Vasek Pospisil 5-7, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4). Isner was a semifinalist at the hard-court tournament last year and failed to defend those ranking points. Its the latest indication of the recent decline of mens tennis in the United States, which produced Grand Slam champions such as Bill Tilden and Don Budge, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. At Wimbledon in June, for the first time in 101 years, no men from the United States reached the third round at the All England Club. The last time no American men got that far at Wimbledon was in 1912 when none entered. The U.S. Open, which starts Aug. 26, will mark 10 years since the last time an American man won a Grand Slam tournament -- Andy Roddick at the 2003 U.S. Open. Roddick was a fixture in the top 10 until a series of injuries hampered him shortly before he retired during last years U.S. Open. According to the ATP, at least one American man has appeared in the top 20 every week since the first computer rankings came out on Aug. 23, 1973. The new rankings will come out Monday. Steven Matz Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Wilmer Flores Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. Cheap Baseball Mets Jerseys . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Dwight Gooden Jersey . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. A look at whats happening all around the majors Friday:---OCTOBER AT WRIGLEYThe Cubs can clinch home-field advantage for the postseason with a win over the Cardinals and a loss by the Nationals. The playoffs are just around the corner for the NL Central champs, and it seems as if they are only embracing the escalating pressure of trying to end the teams 108-year title drought. I think pressure is what you make of it, said Jon Lester, one of the front-runners for the NL Cy Young Award. I mean we all know what the deal is around here. You cant run from it. All you can do is show up and play.YNOA IN A PINCH, AGAINGabriel Ynoa is again being asked to fill in for the depleted Mets rotation. The right-hander made a spot start Sunday when Jacob deGrom was scratched, and now hes had his turn moved up from Saturday to replace left-hander Steven Matz , who was scratched from his scheduled turn after experiencing renewed shoulder soreness. Ynoa pitched adeptly in deGroms absence, limiting the Twins to a run and four hits over 4 2/3 innings. Manager Terry Collins said the latest setback could make it difficult for Matz to earn a spot on the postseason roster.KEYSTONE RETURNTigers second baseman Ian Kinsler could be cleared to play against Kansas City after missing three games this week due to a concussion. Kinsler worked out on the field before a doubleheader against Minnesotaa on Thursday, and Detroit was waiting to see how he felt the next day before making a decision.dddddddddddd Kinsler was hit in the head by a pitch from Clevelands Trevor Bauer on Sunday.MISSING OUT ON THE FUNComing off a critical series victory at Baltimore, the Red Sox can move closer to winning the AL East when they open a three-game set against the last-place Rays. Boston has closed strong despite struggles from left-hander Drew Pomeranz (10-12, 3.40), who hopes to get back on track before the end of the regular season. The Sox have lost four of Pomeranzs last five starts, and the lefty has a 6.00 ERA in that time.KAZ COMING BACKScott Kazmir comes off the disabled list and tries to pitch the Dodgers closer to clinching the NL West in a game against the Rockies. The left-hander has been out since Aug. 22 due to neck inflammation. Hes expected to throw about 90 pitches, but Los Angeles said hell be monitored closely.TALL ORDERThe Angels Alex Meyer (6-foot-9) and Astros Doug Fister (6-8) combine for one of the tallest pitching matchups ever in the majors. Its just short of the record set when 6-10 Randy Johnson beat 6-9 Daniel Cabrera in 2009 -- Johnson struck out nine for his 298th career victory as San Francisco beat Washington 11-7.
