Stitched Orioles Jerseys .Hertha, which was level with Bayern before the defending champions comfortable 2-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach in Saturdays late game, is struggling to keep expectations down after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Cologne.Its a bit much, Hertha striker Vedad Ibisevic said of being called Bayerns challenger. Were playing well but its early. Were not Bayern-chasers, thats other teams.Hertha leads an unlikely chasing pack comprising Hoffenheim, Cologne, and Leipzig, while the traditional heavyweights are all lagging behind after making false starts.Dortmund is six points off the pace but needed Christian Pulisic to rescue a 3-3 draw at lowly Ingolstadt. The second-half substitute scored one and set up another to prevent Dortmund slumping to its third defeat of the season.BAYERN MUNICH 2, BORUSSIA MOENCHENGLADBACH 0Bayern attacked from the off and duly went ahead when Arturo Vidal powered a header under the bar from Rafinhas cross.Fifteen minutes later, Douglas Costa celebrated his first start of the season by taking David Alabas cross on his chest and firing the ball inside the right post. The Brazilian ran over to two fans, posed and took a selfie with them.If he always scores, he can take 100 selfies, Bayern defender Mats Hummels said.It was all Bayern with `Gladbach offering next to nothing in attack. But for an early shot over on a counterattack from Fabian Johnson, every other effort in the first half came from the home side.Bayern was able to conserve energy in the second half, when Andre Hahn struck the post for `Gladbach.INGOLSTADT 3, BORUSSIA DORTMUND 3Dortmunds title chances took another blow after dropping points for the fourth time in eight games.Almog Cohen gave Ingolstadt an early lead after a poorly defended free kick, then Roman Weidenfeller prevented the home side going further ahead when he blocked Lukas Hinterseers overhead kick. Weidenfeller started for the first time since March as Roman Buerki had a cold.Another free kick from a similar position on the right allowed Dario Lezcano to head in Ingolstadts second.Bad at the back, Dortmund also created little up front in the face of Ingolstadts well-organized defense.Thomas Tuchel sent on Pulisic after the break and Mario Goetze shortly afterward. The latter was involved straight away as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back with his seventh of the season.The celebrations lasted less than a minute, however, as Lezcano grabbed his second, minutes before Ingolstadt hit the post.Pulisic set up Adrian Ramos to get within one in the 69th, and he prodded home the equalizer from close range in the last minute after Orjan Nyland saved Lukasz Piszczeks initial effort.Ingolstadt was previously bottom after six straight defeats.HERTHA BERLIN 2, COLOGNE 1Ibisevic fired Hertha into an early lead after a fine run and cross from Mitchell Weiser.Anthony Modeste grabbed the equalizer with his league-leading eighth goal in the 65th, converted from close range after great interplay between Jonas Hector, Konstantin Rausch, and Leonardo Bittencourt.But Niklas Stark grabbed the winner less than 10 minutes later for the high-flying home side.DARMSTADT 3, WOLFSBURG 1Valerien Ismaels tenure at Wolfsburg got off to a rocky start when last defender Jeffrey Bruma was sent off for denying a clear goal chance. Anis Ben-Hatira scored from the resulting free kick in the 25th.Germany striker Mario Gomez equalized on the hour with his first Wolfsburg goal, but Laszlo Kleinheisler restored the home sides advantage eight minutes later, and Sandro Sirigu ensured Wolfsburgs seventh consecutive game without a win.Ismaels predecessor, Dieter Hecking, was sacked on Monday.BAYER LEVERKUSEN 0, HOFFENHEIM 3Leverkusen was dealt a blow when forward Kevin Volland was sent off against his former side in the sixth minute for denying Kerem Demirbay a clear goal chance.Demirbay fired under the bar to open the scoring, Sandro Wagner made it 2-0 early in the second half, and set up Steven Zuber to score on the hour.FREIBURG 2, AUGSBURG 1Second-half goals from Maximilian Philipp and Nils Petersen, both set up by Vincenzo Grifo, gave Freiburg its fourth win of the season.

Hampshire 167 for 6 (Dawson 76, Weatherley 43, Wagg 3-38) beat Glamorgan 142 for 7 (Wallace 45, Dawson 4-23) by 25 runsScorecard Liam Dawson cracked an unbeaten 76 before starring with the ball to hand Hampshire a rare Natwest T20 Blast win as they beat high flying Glamorgan by 25 runs.Dawson hit the first Twenty20 fifty of his career before spinning out Glamorgan with 4 for 23, flanked by fellow twirlers Shahid Afridi and Brad Taylor.The win, just their second in 11 attempts in this seasons competition, brightened a difficult day for Hampshire following the news Michael Carberry has been diagnosed with cancer - after a specialist discovered a tumour during tests this week.We are a little bit numbed by it, which you could see from the crowd which was quite flat, Giles White, the Hampshire director of cricket, said. The players did a good job today to go out there under the circumstances. An hour or so before the start Carbs wanted to tell the players. It was quite an emotional time for everyone.Carbs has been at the club for 10 years or so and is a popular member with all those guys and the response of the players was fantastic. They stuck to their job brilliantly. We have struggled with injuries and other stuff this year and I think the way the players went out there and performed was fantastic.After being stuck in by Jacques Rudolph, a new look opening pair of Tom Alsop and Adam Wheater stuttered with a flurry of wickets. Graham Waggs second over swung the early momentum towards the inform hosts - Alsop nicked to slip while advancing down the pitch before Sean Ervines leading edge looped to cover two balls later.Wheater was the next to offer a simple catch, Wagg failing to stay out of the game in the covers, Michael Hogan grabbing his first scalp.It required an international intervention to stop the slide and Dawson and Afridi provided it with a steadying 46 runs partnership. Afridi fell to a stunning Waggg pounce and the England star was close to following him when he was shelled on 29 by Shaun Tait. Baltimore Orioles Store. But Dawson made up for his good fortune with Hampshires highest individual score of the season - his half century bought in with 42 balls, including just three boundaries.Dawson, along with academy star Joe Weatherley, added another 78 for the fifth wicket to continue the recovery.Weatherley, hitting a personal Blast high of 43, with two six, particularly impressed but played one shot too many to the deep - wicketkeeper Lewis McManus soon following him.But 17 from the final over, Dawson crunching 14 of them to take himself to 76 not out, handed Hampshire a defendable total of 167. The chase had the feel of a glide to victory, with timed cuts and drives from David Lloyd and Mark Wallace the order of the evening.The pair appeared to be in little trouble but that changed when left-armer Dawson stamped his mark on the game for as second time, striking with his first ball to bowl Lloyd for 18.Dawson continued his one-man show against Glamorgan when he had the tournaments master six hitter Colin Ingram caught behind four deliveries later.Glamorgan collapsed, Aneurin Donald bowled for a duck to give legspinner Afridi his moment and he ended up with impressive figures of 1 for 16 before Taylor caught and bowled Rudolph.The visitors, who would have gone top with a victory, had won six of their last seven games on the road - but their record was dented when Wallace picked out cover Ervine - continuing the trend of wickets to slow bowling.Dawson had his second when Craig Meschede picked out a sprawling Weatherley at long-on, and a third as Wagg sliced to Gareth Andrew.From that point the win was secure, with 35 needed from the final over, to lift spirits a little at the Ageas Bowl.
