SAN DIEGO -- Hoisting the trophy and spraying champagne will be nice, for sure, for the crew that wins the Americas Cup World Series.Even sweeter will be the two bonus points that can help jumpstart that team when the fleet reconvenes in Bermuda next summer for the elimination rounds.The ninth and final stop of the ACWS will be sailed this weekend in Fukuoka, Japan. The winner of the overall series will earn two bonus points to carry into the qualifiers in June, while the second-place team will earn one bonus point.Thats a significant bonus to take forward, said British sailing star Sir Ben Ainslie, whose Land Rover BAR team holds the overall series lead with 437 points, 14 better than two-time defending Americas Cup champion Oracle Team USA.Emirates Team New Zealand, the hard-luck loser to Oracle in the 2013 Americas Cup, is three points back in third, with 420.SoftBank Team Japan is fourth with 399, followed by Artemis Racing of Sweden with 391 and Groupama Team France with 360.Ainslie, who was knighted a few months after winning his fourth straight Olympic gold medal at the 2012 London Games, said Land Rover BAR has been motivated by the bonus points and because its a new team fighting for the oldest trophy in international sports.Its been a huge amount of work, Ainslie said. Ive never worked this hard in my life. Its been massively rewarding for all of us for what weve achieved in a short amount of time. But were just starting. Our goal is to build a sustainable business in the UK with the core goal of winning the Americas Cup. We know it will be a huge battle next summer in Bermuda. If were not able to win the Cup next time, were going to keep going. We set this up to keep going until we get the job done.Ainslie would love to become the first Englishman to hoist the Americas Cup in victory. After losing the trophy to the schooner America in 1851, the Brits have never been able to win it back.Its huge, Ainslie said. For us, we have a very proud sporting heritage. Thats the one sporting trophy weve never won.The two bonus points will essentially represent two wins in the double round-robin qualifiers. In a break with tradition, the defender, Oracle, will sail against the challengers in that series.If a challenger wins the qualifiers and ultimately advances to the Americas Cup match, it will begin with a one-point advantage. Likewise, if Oracle, owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison, wins the qualifiers, it will begin the first-to-seven match with a one-point lead.After the qualifiers, the top four challengers will advance to the playoffs consisting of semifinals and finals to determine which team faces Oracle in the Americas Cup match.Ainslie said that one-point bonus for the Americas Cup match would be a nice helping hand.It certainly is our approach that its definitely worth fighting for, he said.Land Rover BAR has won three of the eight ACWS stops, with one second and two thirds.Oracle has yet to win a stop on the series, although it has four second-place finishes and two thirds.However, Oracle was last in the previous ACWS stop in Toulon, France.Skipper Jimmy Spithill missed that regatta after having elbow surgery. Hes back for this regatta.Obviously this would be a pretty nice one to crack that, Spithill said. But the biggest thing in this series was consistency. Trust me, every single event we come to as a team, the goal is the same, to try to come away with a win. This one is no different. We want to come away with points. Were in not too bad of a position.Ainslie sailed with Oracle in the 2013 Americas Cup, helping the American-backed team rally to beat Team New Zealand in one of the biggest comebacks in sports history.I would say if they went through without winning an event that would be a disappointment in terms of their psyche, although it doesnt really hurt them, Ainslie said. Knowing that team, they expect to be performing better. Theyve been one of the more consistent teams but they havent been able to nail it on the date. Hopefully, from our point of view, this Japan event wont be when they start.---Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/berniewilson Jeff Walker Jersey Retro . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year.

The luck seems to be evening out. Seager and Mike Zunino came up with clutch hits early, and the Mariners used an unlikely ninth inning double play to pull out a 4-3 win over the Indians on Tuesday night and extend their winning streak to eight games. Playing without ailing manager Eric Wedge for a second straight game, the Mariners took advantage of defensive miscues by the Indians, received solid pitching and executed flawlessly in the ninth inning when it appeared Cleveland was set to at least tie the game. The Mariners extended the longest current win streak in baseball and have a chance Wednesday for their first nine-game win streak since 2003. "When we were in Cleveland they were playing really good baseball obviously and they got a few breaks for them and thats what good teams do," Seager said. "This series weve been playing pretty well and weve been able to capitalize when given the opportunities." The ninth started ominously with Mark Reynolds singling on Wilhelmsens first pitch of the inning. Drew Stubbs came on to pinch run and went racing to third on Lonnie Chisenhalls single up the middle to put runners on the corners with no outs. Thats when the craziness began. Yan Gomes hit a chopper to third base. Seager briefly looked at Stubbs and quickly threw to second to get pinch runner Mike Aviles. Stubbs found himself caught between making a sprint for the plate or staying at third. When he started to break for home, Nick Franklin was already throwing to the plate. Stubbs was caught in a rundown and eventually tagged out by shortstop Brad Miller. It was a fundamentally solid play mostly by a group of players that havent been in the big leagues for very long. "Our young guys right there, the way they executed that was quite impressive, starting with Seager and then Franklin and Miller getting over there. Thats not an easy guy to track down either," said Seattle bench coach Robby Thompson, who filled in for Wedge again. "It was great court awareness, if you would, for the young guys." Stubbs said he neverr should have hesitated once Seager threw to second.dddddddddddd "Its a play youve got to run through scenarios in your head and make your mind up and go with it," Stubbs said. "Any slight hesitation is going to cost you like it did." Wilhelmsen then struck out Michael Bourn looking to end it. "Thats what winning is about, is taking advantage of those opportunities and were starting to do that more times than not as of late," Wilhelmsen said. The Mariners believed they would have Wedge back in the dugout a day after he went to a local hospital following dizzy spells during batting practice. But doctors kept Wedge for one more night while more tests were run to try and determine a cause. Thompson improved to 2-0 as the Mariners fill-in manager. Seager had an RBI double in the first, an inning that was kept alive by a Cleveland error. He singled and scored the tying run in the third and Zunino came through with a two-out RBI off Cleveland starter Zach McAllister (4-6) later in the inning to give Seattle the lead. Raul Ibanez, Kendrys Morales and Michael Saunders all had doubles in the third inning. Zuninos two-out single into right field scored Saunders with what proved to be the winning run. Zunino had a solo homer on Monday night that was the winning run in a 2-1 victory. Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez and a pair of relievers made the one-run lead stand up. Ramirez (1-1) pitched 5 2-3 innings, before giving way to Yoervis Medina, who threw 2 1-3 innings allowing just one hit. Wilhelmsens wild ninth was good enough for his 23rd save. Ramirez gave up a two-run homer to Gomes in the second, but allowed only one baserunner past first base the rest of the night. The big inning for Ramirez was the third, when the Indians had runners on the corners and two outs and got Reynolds to weakly ground out. "Sometimes things just kind of snowball and go your way and they seem to be going our way a little bit," Thompson said. NOTES: Clevelands three errors matched its season high, done on two other occasions this season. ... Seattle sent reliever Bobby LaFromboise to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday to clear a roster spot for Ramirez to make the start. ... Three of Gomes seven homers this season have come against Seattle.
