Stephen Cook will be in the spotlight in the second Test against Australia in Hobart as the only South African batsman still to prove himself on this tour. Apart from Amla, Cook was the only other member of the line-up who did not get a score over 20 in the first Test in Perth. Fellow opener Dean Elgar believes Cook will be desperate to set that straight.Im sure if I was in that position Id be a bit frustrated because as a player in this environment you want to make a contribution. And I know a guy whos just started his international career wants to make a big play for South Africa, Elgar said. Everybody shares his frustrations. As his opening partner, I share his frustrations with him. I am frustrated on his behalf. Hopefully he can feed off the good form of us winning the first Test and make a big play for us in the second Test.Cooks problem is not so much the lack of runs as it is the method of dismissal. In the first innings, he fronted up to a hostile opening over from Mitchell Starc and was caught in the slips off the fourth ball. In the second, he lasted an hour and 13 minutes before pulling a bouncer to short midwicket.Starc exploited a weakness that has showed in Cooks game throughout this tour. In the two warm-up matches before the series, too, Cook was dismissed caught behind, prompting work on his trigger movement and foot positioning. Neil McKenzie, South Africas batting consultant and a long-time team-mate of Cooks at the Lions domestic franchise, worked with the opener on staying on the ball of his front foot, so that he would splay the foot, open the back hip and not get caught playing down the wrong line. Cook was unable to rectify that in time for Perth but is likely to get another chance in Hobart, despite the presence of Rilee Rossouw in the squad.Rossouws fine form in the one-day series at home against Australia - he scored 311 runs in five matches - earned him a spot in the Test touring party but it is unlikely he will play unless there is an injury. Rilee is a different dynamic player. Hes a bit more of a middle-order player. Hes not really an opening batsman. His role is a lot different to Cookie, Elgar said. He will bring in another dynamic of aggression. Thats the way he approaches his cricket. I dont think Rilee is going to be needed just yet.Another option before South Africa is to push Quinton de Kock up and use Rossouw in the middle order but they may be wary of adding to de Kocks workload or making a rash decision on Cook. The 33-year old waited more than a decade to play international cricket and has only played in four Tests. After a century on debut, he also scored fifty against New Zealand in August and is likely to be given a longer run to show what he can do.It helps that Elgar has cemented himself in the role and has graduated to some level of seniority. No longer seen as the new kid, he has even earned the respect of the Australia side after his Perth hundred. Josh Hazlewood called him a bit of a grinder and very patient and put him in the category of batsmen whose wicket you have to work for. Elgar will take that. Thats just my nature, to try and irritate the opposition. Im not practising it. It just comes naturally, he said. If thats the way they feel about it, its not a bad thing.

DENVER -- Once the stormy weather cleared, Torontos victory drought in Denver finally came to an end.Troy Tulowitzki homered to ignite a go-ahead, six-run fourth inning and the former Rockies star helped the Blue Jays win in Denver for the first time as Toronto beat Colorado 14-9 early Wednesday morning in a game that began with a lengthy delay because of severe weather.That was a long one, Tulowitzki said. Every once in a while, it gets a little crazy out there. Its one of those games Im sure they dont like to see it on their side. It is what it is.Rain and hail came down on Coors Field in a fierce, hour-long downpour, leading to heavy runoff into the Rockies dugout and clubhouse tunnel that caused some flooding. Grounds crew workers were able to clear the water away by sandbagging the tunnel entrance and clearing debris over the drains, allowing the pooled water to dissipate.Shovels, squeegees, brushes and an air blower were used to prepare the field, and the first pitch came at 9:21 p.m., after a delay of 2 hours, 41 minutes.I had some doubts, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. It looked pretty bad out there with all the hail and there was a lot of water. The field drains well, weve seen that in the past and our grounds crew is really good.Both teams came out swinging, combining for 32 hits and 23 runs.Josh Donaldson had a bases-loaded triple in the fourth for Toronto, which had lost all seven of its previous games at Colorado. Kevin Pillar had a two-run double in the Blue Jays three-run sixth.We kept plugging away and had some big innings, Tulowitzki said. It was a good win. Hopefully, it can be a series win, but its nice to celebrate with the guys on the field and give some high-fives.J.A. Happ (10-3) won his fourth straight, allowing five runs in five innings.Carlos Gonzalez had four hits, including a home run, and 5 RBI for the Rockies, who saw their three-game winning streak snapped.Trailing 4-1, Toronto broke through in the fourth, starting with TTulowitzkis drive off Eddie Butler leading off the inning.dddddddddddd Butler (2-5) gave up an RBI single to Ezequiel Carrera and was relieved by Yohan Flande, who surrendered a single to the first batter he faced, Devon Travis, to load the bases ahead of Donaldsons three-run, go-ahead triple. The Blue Jays sixth run of the inning scored on a throwing error by Flande.With Cristhian Adames and Nolan Arenado aboard in the third, Gonzalez fell behind 0-2 in the count before getting hold of Happs pitch and driving it over the right field wall for his 18th home run of the season and second in as many nights.CARGOS HIT PARADEGonzalezs four hits represented his fourth consecutive multihit effort and boosted his total with the Rockies to 1,002. Hes the sixth player in team history to have 1,000 hits for the Rockies.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: An MRI on RHP Gavin Floyd showed he has a tear of his right lat muscle and will be out eight to 12 weeks. Floyd came out of a relief appearance Saturday after facing two batters.Rockies: LF Ryan Raburn was a late scratch from the starting lineup because of illness. ...
