The Czech Republic swept past Serbia in the doubles for a 2-1 lead in the Davis Cup final on Saturday, leaving them one victory away from retaining the cup. Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. Berdych plays Novak Djokovic, on a 23-match winning run, in the first reverse singles on Sunday, and the final could be decided when Stepanek likely meets cup rookie Dusan Lajovic in the final rubber. "I am in the best possible position after Saturday," said Berdych, who has beaten Djokovic only twice in 16 encounters, and never on a hard court. "I have nothing to lose. I am going to go there and fight for each point." Serbia captain Bogdan Obradovic said Zimonjic and Bozoljac gave their best, but lost against a better pair. "But we were in similar situations before," Obradovic said. Serbia came from 2-1 down in the 2010 cup final against France, and in this years semifinals against Canada. But both heroes of those ties arent playing. Viktor Troicki, who clinched Serbias only cup title in 2010, is serving a doping ban, and Janko Tipsarevic, who secured the win over Canada, is sidelined by a heel injury. Obradovic said he was not sure if Lajovic, who lost against Berdych in straight sets on Friday, would play if theres a fifth rubber. On Saturday, the Czechs broke Zimonjic at the start of the first two sets. Zimonjic netted an easy volley in the second set to give the Czechs a commanding two-set lead. Stepanek played almost faultlessly. He saved the only break point for the Serbs at 2-3 in the third set with a neat drop shot. In the third-set tiebraker, Stepanek first lost his serve, but then Zimonjic and Bozoljac both suffered mini-breaks. Stepanek won the match with an ace. "Today, it worked out really well. We fit perfectly. Honestly," Stepanek said. "It was one of the best matches we played. But, we have to stay humble, focused and concentrated. "If it comes down to the fifth match, I will be ready to fight to the last point." Zimonjic said "they were better in every aspect of the game." "We had a little chance in the third set, but that was the only one. They were controlling the match from the beginning to the end." Calvin Munson Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.

Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey .Y. - Geno Smith still thinks of himself as the New York Jets starting quarterback.CHICAGO -- Jake Arrieta tried to tamper his pregame butterflies. Making his big league season debut following shoulder stiffness, Arrieta struck out seven in 5 1-3 shutout innings Saturday as the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 for their first three-game winning streak this season. Arrieta said pitching at Wrigley Field has become a special experience for him dating to his Cubs debut last season, also was against the Cardinals. Arrieta walked two and threw 82 pitches. The Cardinals put five runners on base through the first three innings. "Command of my sinker down in the zone was working really good, establishing the curveball early in the game," he said. "The more you do that with secondary stuff, the less they can eliminate certain pitches later in the game. Thats kind of what we had going for us." Chicagos bullpen combined for three-hit relief, finishing a seven-hitter. Brian Schlitter (1-0) got two outs for the win, and Hector Rondon worked around a pair of leadoff singles in the ninth for his third save. Junior Lake and Anthony Rizzo homered for the Cubs, who hadnt won three straight a series sweep at San Francisco last July 26-28. A day after the Cubs defeated Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha (2-3) allowed two runs, five hits and three walks in six innings. Lake hit a two-run homer in the sixth for a 2-0 lead. He also doubled on a 3-for-3 afternoon. "Its just frustrating, really," Wacha said. "I served one up there, and they go up two runs. You just cant afford that in that situation." Rizzo led off the eighth with sixth home run, and third in three games.dddddddddddd He connected on the first pitch he saw from Randy Choate. "We know were a good team," Rizzo said. "Its just about getting the wins. Today we got the win. The last few days weve gotten a win. Its just about staying with it, keep battling." Yadier Molina and Jhonny Peralta opened the ninth with singles off Rondon. But he got Jon Jay to hit into a double play and struck out Mark Ellis. St. Louis, which stranded eight runners, has scored two runs or fewer in seven of its last 13 games. Arrieta struck out Molina to strand runners on the corners in first. The Cardinals put two on with no outs in the second before Greg Garcia struck out, Wacha grounded out and shortstop Starlin Castro made an over-the-shoulder catch on Matt Carpenters popup. "Right now, its not looking like what we want it to look like," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. "Whatever were doing is not working, so we have to figure it out and figure it out fast." NOTES: Cardinals LHP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) was scheduled to make a minor league injury rehabilitation start Saturday at Double A-Springfield. ... With the Cardinals struggling offensively, Matheny has tried several lineup combinations. Thats left some players -- especially OF Peter Bourjos and 2B Mark Ellis -- frustrated because of unpredictable playing time. "The message we continue to give them is: keep pushing," Matheny said. "We need each of you guys to be at the top of your game in order to be as good as we can be and youre gonna get your opportunity."
