CALGARY - Fading light, plummeting temperatures and a treacherous mid-course pitch didnt stop moguls skier Mikael Kingsbury from winning in Calgary yet again.The Olympic silver medallist from Deux-Montagnes, Que., extended his World Cup win streak at Canada Olympic Park to five in a row Saturday.Kingsburys 22nd career victory puts him back in contention to win a fourth overall World Cup title.At just 22 years of age, Kingsbury is the most decorated mens World Cup freestyle skier in Canadian history.Kingsbury passed Canadian aerialists Lloyd Langlois and Alain Laroche with Saturdays victory. He bettered moguls skier Jean-Luc Brassards record of 20 last season.Kingsbury finished ninth in a dual moguls race in Finland last month to start the season. He recovered his form and confidence in Calgary where he first won in 2011.I know when Im on it I can win every day, Kingsbury said. I just need to continue to ski well and continue to have fun. I know Im going to be OK for the season.Im extremely happy to start well again the season of 2015 and prove that Im consistent on that course.His teammate Simon-Pouliot Cavanagh of Quebec City took silver for the best result of his career. Sho Endo of Japan was third and took the overall World Cup leaders yellow bib from Canadian Phil Marquis, who didnt qualify for the final.Kingsbury trails Endo by 11 points in the overall standings.Reigning womens world champion Hannah Kearney of the U.S., claimed gold in womens moguls. Montreal sisters Chloe and Justine Dufour-Lapointe took silver and bronze respectively.The same women finished on the podium at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, this year, but in a different order. Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe claimed gold and silver respectively with Kearney taking bronze in February.The 28-year-old Kearney, who beat Canadas Jennifer Heil for Olympic gold in 2010, is expected to make the 2014-15 season her competitive swan song.I havent made it an official announcement where it turned into some weird farewell tour with the whole emphasis on my past and things Id done before, Kearney explained. Im still here to compete, but theres a 99 per cent chance Ill be retiring at the end of the season.My body felt really good at the end of last year and to be honest, the way the Olympics went it was hard to just hang it up after that. I still felt like I had something to prove. I know I dont, but bottom line is I still enjoy doing it.Kearney and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe were tied atop the womens overall standings 55 points ahead of Justine, whose run of gold in Calgary ended after victories the last two years.My point of view is its my first podium of the year, the 20-year-old said. Its in my hometown, in Canada, so yes, I am happy.After the Olympic Games, you really understand that all of Canada supports you and thats why Im so grateful to compete here and say it feels like my hometown.Fresh snow overnight Friday provided material for well-defined moguls, but thickening cloud reduced visibility for Saturdays afternoons finals. The skiers expended energy keeping their legs warm between runs as the temperature dipped below minus-20.The weather was cold today so this was a big challenge, Chloe Dufour-Lapointe said. We had a lot of runs and a lot of time where we had to stay warm.A steep drop between the first and second jumps toppled a few skiers and caused others to make mistakes. Kingsbury had a small slip in both runs prior to the six-man super-final, but made the correction in his final pass down the mountain.Its pretty cold here and when you wait on top of the course, my legs werent as warm as in training, he said. Its pretty quick between final and super-final and I knew where I made my mistake on an outside mogul.When it arrived, I knew where to put my feet and I didnt make the mistake again.Andi Naude of Penticton, B.C., finished fifth, Audrey Robichaud of Quebec City was seventh and the oldest Dufour-Lapointe sister Maxime placed eighth among the women.Moguls judging and scoring changed this season. Skiers are now scored out of a maximum of 100 instead of 30. Turns make up 60 per cent of the score, 20 is for jumps and another 20 for speed instead of the previous 50-25-25.Kingsbury posted the top super-final score of 85.78 ahead of Pouliot-Cavanaghs 82.92. Kearneys winning total of 83.76 was actually lower than her qualification mark in the morning of 84.73.Im really pleased with my skiing, but its unusual when youre qualifying score is higher than your super-final score, the American said. That means Ive got some good runs in me.The moguls team heads to Deer Valley, Utah, for moguls and dual moguls World Cups on Friday and Saturday respectively. The world freestyle and snowboard championships are Jan. 15-25 in Kreischberg, Austria.

Custom Red Wings Jersey . -- Get a flow chart ready to follow the Packers quarterback situation.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Martin Perez kept his pitches low in the zone and got plenty of help from the Texas defence. Perez threw eight scoreless innings with the benefit of four double-play grounders, plus two runners thrown out trying to steal a base, and the Rangers got a series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday. "That happens when you throw all your pitches down and you get a lot of groundballs," Perez said. "If you can throw strikes with runners on base, you can get a win, you can get the outs. You have to make a pitch and trust your stuff." The lone run came on a sacrifice fly in the sixth by Donnie Murphy, who was in the game only because shortstop Elvis Andrus got ejected at the end of the third after taking a called third strike. Andrus tossed his bat away from the plate and then said something to home plate umpire Alan Porter. "As soon as I saw (the ump) point at him, I automatically threw off the hoodie and got loose, so I didnt really have much time to think about it," said Murphy, who joined the Rangers at the end of spring training. "Its always nice when you dont start the game just to come in and contribute like that." Perez (2-0) struck out two while scattering five hits and three walks. Catcher Robinson Chirinos threw out would-be base stealers in the third and fifth innings. Alexi Ogando worked a perfect ninth to convert his first save chance. Murphys deep flyball to the left-centre gap in the sixth sent home Josh Wilson against Brett Oberholtzer (0-3), who had a career-high seven strikeouts with no walks. "Oberholtzer was outstanding. Our starters did a tremendous job this whole series. The starts put us in a position to win every game," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "Weve got to get (the offence) going. If you dont score, youve got zero chance of winning." The Astros, who have scored only four runs in Oberholtzers three starts, scoreed in only two of their 31 innings against Texas.ddddddddddddThey had a five-run fourth inning Saturday before the game-winning run in the 10th. It was only the 10th 1-0 victory for the Rangers in their 1,601 regular-season home games since moving into their current ballpark 20 years ago. It was their second in three games against the Astros, the first time Texas has ever had multiple 1-0 wins in the same series -- home or away. Texas won the series opener 1-0 in 12 innings Friday night after Yu Darvish was perfect thru five innings. The Astros won 6-5 in 10 innings Saturday to snap their 12-game losing streak to their instate AL West rival. Houston has scored only four runs in the three games started this season by Oberholtzer, who struck out a career-high seven in seven innings against Texas. Texas has won its last 15 series against the Astros since dropping two of three at Houston in June 2008. Andrus struck out in both of his at-bats, ending his season-opening 11-game hitting streak that was second-longest in team history. Al Oliver had hits in the Rangers first 13 games to start the 1979 season. Prince Fielder finished 0 for 3, dropping his average to .149 through his first 12 games with the Rangers. The Astros used a drastic shift against him this weekend that took away several hits, including a sharp liner caught by second baseman Jose Altuve in shallow right to end the sixth Sunday. Altuve fielded a ground near that spot in the fourth. NOTES: It took only 44 seconds in the first inning for replay to overturn first base umpire Joe Wests call that Shin-Soo Choo was safe at first base. West had ruled that Altuves throw had pulled Jesus Guzman off first base. Porter came out, and replay showed that Guzman had stayed on the base and Choo was out. ... Murphy played second base, and Wilson moved from second base to shortstop. ... Rain was falling when the game started, but the sun was out when it ended 2 hours, 15 minutes later.
