The mascot is named after the North Side Chicago street on which Wrigley Field is located. Team officials say they held focus groups before deciding on Clark, and fans told them they wanted a more family-friendly atmosphere at Wrigley Field. Clark will greet fans at Wrigley before and during games, and the mascot will have a Twitter account and Facebook page.

.S. military base for UFC: Fight for the Troops 3. This fight card, which takes place in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, has had a number of changes, including headliner Lyoto Machida replaced by fellow Brazilian Rafael Natal.PHILADELPHIA -- Roberto Hernandez might want to have his next start switched, as well. Hernandez pitched four-hit ball over 7 1-3 innings, outdueling Gio Gonzalez and leading the Philadelphia Phillies past the Washington Nationals 1-0 Sunday. Chase Utley hit an RBI single in the first inning for the only run. Hernandez (2-1) struck out three and walked three. His start was moved up two days because Cole Hamels had the flu, and he retired 14 of 15 batters in the middle innings. "Not a big deal, whatever I had to do," Hernandez said. "I kept the ball down and tried not to overthrow. Im happy. It was a great game for my team and for me, too." Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg likes what Hernandez has added to the Phillies rotation as the fifth starter. "We like his stuff," Sandberg said. "Hes a ground ball pitcher. He has a durable arm. He likes the ball. Hes reliable and he can throw a lot of pitches in the game. "I like the way hes throwing. He solidifies our rotation and is a good complement. Hes funky out there, hes different and I like what hes doing right now." Mike Adams and Antonio Bastardo each got an out in the eighth. Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances. Gonzalez (3-2) allowed four hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two. "It was just a good pitchers duel," Gonzalez said. "I just tried to keep us in the game as long as possible." Philadelphia scored when Jimmy Rollins hit a one-out triple and Utley followed with a single. "That set the tone for our game," Sandberg said. Ben Revere tripled with one out in the Philadelphia third, and Gonzalez didnt give up another hit until Jayson Nixs leadoff single in the eighth. "Gio pitched well and their guy did too," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "It was a good, old-fashioned pitching duel." GGonzalez got some help from his defence during that stretch, as Nate McLouth robbed Rollins of a hit with a diving catch in left field to open the sixth. Detroit Tigers Hats
. The slumping McLouth didnt have success with the bat, though, going 0 for 3. He has just four hits in his last 44 at-bats, and has been filling in for the injured Bryce Harper. Denard Span opened the eighth with a single off Hernandez and the Philadelphia starter departed after Kevin Frandsens sacrifice bunt. Adams, who gave up the lead and took the loss in Friday nights series-opening loss to the Nationals, got Jayson Werth to ground out. Bastardo then relieved and walked Adam LaRoche before striking out Anthony Rendon. "Weve had some really key hits over the course of the season," Williams said. "It just wasnt our day." Said Gonzalez, "Were still good and the guys are working hard. Im not worried about this team." The Phillies unsuccessfully challenged a safe call by first-base umpire Fieldin Culbreth in the second. Culbreth ruled that Ian Desmond beat Rollins throw from shortstop to first baseman Ryan Howard. The delay lasted 2 minutes, 42 seconds.
