SAN FRANCISCO -- Having been shut out twice in his bid to make the National League All-Star team, Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb will be seeking some individual glory when he faces Jake Peavy and the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.Lamb was denied a spot among the first 33 players to make the NL squad when the fans voted Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs into a starting role, and Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies was picked as the backup.Lamb, who began play Friday third in the NL among third basemen in home runs (20) and RBI (61), was given a second shot at making his first All-Star appearance in the Final Vote, but once again the fans let him down.Lamb finished fourth out of five in the NL balloting that ended before Fridays games, with Giants first baseman Brandon Belt, who took the field Friday with far fewer home runs (10) and RBI (46) than Lamb, getting the nod.Neither Lamb nor Belt had much of an impact on Fridays 6-2 Giants win, each going hitless and combining for six walks, four drawn by Belt.Lamb thus begins the weekend one double shy of becoming just the fourth Diamondback ever to record 20 doubles and 20 home runs before the All-Star break. First baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who has accomplished the feat twice, was the last to do it in 2015.Lamb already has a double against Peavy this season. It came in Arizonas 9-7 win the last time they saw the Giants veteran in San Francisco on April 18.The double was one of seven Lamb has hit against the Giants this season. Despite going 0-2 Friday, hes still hitting .318 (14-for-44) against San Francisco with one triple, three home runs and seven RBI in 12 games to go along with the seven doubles.Lamb and his teammates were reminded Friday night the rest of the season, not just the first half, has been relegated to individual glory with the trade of one of the clubs key contributors, closer Brad Ziegler.The veteran was dealt to the Boston Red Sox for two prospects.Its just something that has to happen, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said, noting the clubs last-place standing in the NL West. We should have played better and these things wouldnt be happening.Peavy will be seeking to extend a piece of personal history himself Saturday when he goes after an 18th career win against the Diamondbacks. The 152-game winner has beaten Arizona more than any other team.The Diamondbacks will counter with left-hander Robbie Ray.Ray, who has never lost to the San Francisco in three career starts, will be attempting to prevent the Giants from clinching the NLs best record in the first half.The Giants (55-33) enter the weekend two games ahead of the Chicago Cubs (52-34) in the overall NL standings, which at the end of the season determines the seeding in the playoffs. The Washington Nationals (52-36) are another game farther.Every game is so important for us, Giants manager Bruce Bochy insisted after Fridays win, one that included a hit batter, two purpose pitches and a pair of manager ejections. Were in the business to win games here.The Giants will see the Nationals seven times in the first 21 games after the All-Star break. They dont play the Cubs again until September.

BCCI president Anurag Thakur has said his board will oppose the proposed two-tier Test system to protect the interests of smaller member nations. As the head of the powerful BCCI, Thakurs statement lends heft to the criticism of the proposal by Sri Lanka Cricket and the Bangladesh Cricket Board, even as the boards of Australian and New Zealand have welcomed the move.The BCCI is against the two-tier Test system because the smaller countries will lose out and the BCCI wants to take care of them, Thakur told the New Indian Express. It is necessary to protect their interests.The proposal to split Test cricket into two tiers - with seven nations in tier one, and five, including two new Test nations, in the second tier - was mooted at the ICCs annual conference, in Edinburgh, where ICC chief executive David Richardson advocated a proper competition structure, with promotion and relegation, for Test cricket to have greater context. Unless we can give some meaning to these series beyond the rankings and a trophy, then interest in Test cricket will continue to waver, Richardson said. The same applies if we allow uncompetitive Test cricket to take place too offten.ddddddddddddWhile SLC voiced skepticism about the financial model of the two-tier system, the BCB felt Bangladeshs growth would be affected should they be divorced from the top teams. We believe that more we play against competitive sides, the better we will get, BCB vice-president Mahbubul Anam said. If we didnt play against better-standard sides in ODIs, we wouldnt have come this far. We were given a reality check when we were promoted to the highest level. I feel that if we go backwards, our cricket will regress.Thakurs comments seemed to address both concerns as he spelt out the drawbacks of the two-tier system. In the two-tier system, they will lose out on a lot, including revenue and the opportunity to play against top teams, he said. We dont want that to happen. We want to work in the best interests of world cricket and that is why our team plays against all the countries.In Galle, meanwhile, Cricket Australia chairman David Peever urged nations to embrace change and balance notions of tradition with progress.
