Lewis Hamilton leads the championship heading to the Formula One finale but Nico Rosberg carries the momentum into the decisive race in Abu Dhabi. Mitch Moreland Red Sox Jersey .While Rosberg is coming off a strong victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix, Hamilton is dwelling on a mistake that ended his streak of five consecutive wins and kept him from increasing his advantage.Hamilton missed a chance to win at Interlagos on Sunday after going off the track while in close pursuit of his Mercedes teammate, and saw his points lead cut to 17 ahead of the race in Abu Dhabi, where double points are on offer.Rosberg needs to win the season-ending grand prix on Nov. 23 and hope Hamilton finishes third or worse.We saw he made a mistake, so anything can happen in the last race, says Rosberg, the German trying to win his first F1 title.Its good to see, I hope it has slightly dented his confidence. Mental (strength) is a big part of the sport, thats for sure.Rosberg was the one who buckled under the pressure a week before at the U.S. Grand Prix, where he started from the pole but took too long to find his rhythm, and ultimately was overtaken by Hamilton.I progressed from Austin, managed to understand what I need to do better, and that worked out really well, so onwards and upwards in this direction, Rosberg says.All I can do is relax, just as I have been doing, and go to Abu Dhabi in full attack mode as I have done at the last couple of races. It will be a good fight.Hamilton, seeking his second world title, says he will not drive conservatively in Abu Dhabi despite his advantage in the standings.Ill be pushing just as hard, he says. Its everything to play for in the last race. Im looking forward to it.Needing just a second place, Hamilton is in a good position considering how dominant Mercedes has been this season. The team has finished 1-2 a record 11 times, and Hamilton was out of the top two only four times in 18 races.The odds are in his favour.There is zero comfort going into the next race, Hamilton says. There are 50 points to gain — that has never happened in Formula One before, and it just so happens to be this season. In the last race, you never know what is going to happen, so Im going into it to win.If it werent for the new double-points format, Hamilton would need only a sixth-place finish to clinch the title. The drivers could tie on points but Hamilton would be the champion because the Brit has more victories, 11 against five by Rosberg.Rosberg knows he will need some help, no matter what.I need to win Abu Dhabi and hope for some help from Lewis, he says. Its difficult with the car we have. Maybe Williams can do a lucky strike or something.Williams has been one of the closest teams to Mercedes, and was especially competitive at Interlagos, where Felipe Massa finished third. Another good run by Williams could boost Rosbergs chances.I need some Felipe Massa help, Rosberg says.Rosberg was third in Abu Dhabi last year, four spots ahead of Hamilton. The same scenario next week would be enough to give Rosberg the title. Rosberg must finish fifth or better to keep his chances alive.Its going to be a great battle, he says. Lewis is a great competitor and always on the edge, so it will be an exciting race to watch in Abu Dhabi.___Follow Tales Azzoni at http://twitter.com/tazzoni Ted Williams Red Sox Jersey . -- The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed cornerback Perrish Cox to a one-year contract.

SAN DIEGO -- James Shields was on another road mound and thats a good thing for the Kansas City Royals. Then again, he really was at his home away from home. "It was nice to sleep in my own bed last night," Shields said after pitching Kansas City past the San Diego Padres 8-0 Wednesday. Shields (4-3) won at Petco Park, which isnt far from his residence in Rancho Santa Fe. "I got to play with the dog and see the kids for the first time in about a month," Shields said. "It was really nice to be around the house." Shields wasnt a welcome sight for the San Diego batters, scattering seven hits over seven innings. With Eric Hosmer driving in a season-high four runs and the Royals scoring three times in the first inning, Shields was able to win with less than his best. "I didnt think my stuff way that good today," said Shields, who threw a season-high 118 pitches. "I was all over the place, getting behind in counts a lot. It was a grind day, but sometimes you got to go out there without your good stuff and compete and that is what I did." Padres ace Andrew Cashner (2-5) didnt see the fifth inning. "Were kind of in a team-wide funk," Cashner said. The Royals are headed the opposite direction. They won their second straight game, took their first series at Petco Park and snapped a five-game losing skid since rolling into town. "That was what you call an AAGG -- an all-around good game in all phases," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. "Shields was fantastic, the bullpen was great, our defence was solid and we had very, very good baserunning. And our offence had as good as a day as we have had against a darn good young pitcher in a long time." For a good stretch, Shields, who struck out four and walked two, has been tough on the road. Hes won four straight starts away from Kauffmann Stadium and since the start of last season is 14-4 with a 2.00 ERA. Hosmer got three hits. He finished the series going 7 for 15 with seven RBIs, a homer and a double. "The power numbers will come," Hosmer said. "Im not worried about that. Its early in the season and right now Im just doing anything to help this team win." "The biggest thing today was coming up with runners in scooring position and getting guys in," he said. Babe Ruth Red Sox Jersey. The Padres scuffled, not having any better luck against two relievers after Shields exited. They were shut out for a major league-high sixth time this season. San Diego has lost six of eight overall. Cashner, who lasted a season-low four innings, had trouble from the start. He threw 43 pitches in the first, hurt by a pair of errors from shortstop Everth Cabrera that led to two unearned runs. "I feel bad for my teammate, for Cashner," Cabrera said. Alcides Escobar reached when Cabrera misplayed his ground ball after Nori Aoki opened with a single. Hosmer hit a two-run single, Alex Gordon reached base two batters later when Cabrera mishandled his grounder and Danny Valencia followed with a broken-bat, RBI single. Cashner ended the inning by getting Shields to ground out with the bases loaded in a nine-pitch at-bat. "That was the best AB of the game," Hosmer said. The Padres had a chance to cut into their deficit in the second when they got three hits. But Cameron Maybin was too aggressive rounding second base on an infield single, and Escobar slid in behind from shortstop, took Hosmers throw from first base and made the tag. Padres manager Bud Black requested a review, but the call stood. It marked the first time in five appeals this season that Black had lost. The Padres tied a season high with three errors, and had a passed ball and wild pitch in allowing four unearned runs.
