(AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)ExpandTHE GAME: The Milwaukee Brewers rallied for four runs in the eighth inning, coming from behind to hand the Dodgers a 9-8 defeat Sunday afternoon at Camelback Ranch.NOTE: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts left after the game started because he was feeling ill with flu-like symptoms. Bench coach Bob Geren managed the team.PITCHING REPORT: Rich Hill pitched into the fifth inning, allowing three runs on eight hits. He didn’t walk anyone in 4 2/3 innings and struck out four. It was the least effective outing of a strong spring by Hill, a notoriously poor spring performer.“I feel like this spring I’ve been throwing the ball well,” Hill said. “Much, much better than spring trainings before.” Hill started his offseason throwing program earlier this year with an eye toward a better spring. “I believe these things matter,” he said. “You find your arm slot. You find your release point and it carries over into the season.” Caleb Ferguson went 2 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks. … Bullpen candidate Jaime Schultz hadn’t given up a run in spring games before Sunday. But he lit the fire for the Brewers’ rally by walking three consecutive batters in the eighth.HITTING REPORT: The Dodgers scored four times in the first inning on a solo home run by Joc Pederson and a three-run homer by Chris Taylor. … Taylor came into the game batting .184 (7 for 38) with a team-high 15 strikeouts this spring. He went 2 for 3 with a home run and a double, three RBI and two runs scored. … A.J. Pollock had a double and a walk. … Justin Turner was 2 for 2 and is batting .423 (11 for 26) this spring. He leads the Dodgers with 12 runs scored.BACK FIELDS: Closer Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless inning in a minor-league game Sunday after pitching an inning in the Dodgers’ game against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. It was the first time throwing on back-to-back days for Jansen this spring. Fellow reliever Joe Kelly also threw on back-to-back days this weekend – in the game against the White Sox on Saturday and in a bullpen session on Sunday. … Corey Seager took at-bats in a minor-league game again. He is scheduled to play seven innings at shortstop in another minor-league game on Monday.UP NEXT: Dodgers (RHP Ross Stripling) at Texas Rangers (LHP Mike Minor), Monday, 7 p.m., Surprise Stadium, SportsNet LARelated Articlescenter_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies last_img read more

2016 Relays Athletes Make Olympic History

first_img Matthew Centrowitz, became the first American gold medalist in the men’s 1,500 meters since 1908. Centrowitz was the 2015 Grand Blue Mile Champion and also competed inside Drake Stadium. Christian Taylor, the reigning Olympic and Worlds triple jump gold medalist and 2013 Drake Relays champion, claimed another gold in the triple jump. Ruth Beitia, a 2013 Relays champion and regular at the Blue Oval won Spain’s first gold medal in the high jump. When Americans Brianna Rollins, Nia Ali and Kristi Castlin swept the medals in the women’s 100-meter hurdles, it marked the first time a nation had accomplished this near impossible feat. All three competed at the 2016 Relays with Castlin finishing second, Rollins third and Ali fourth. Additionally five of the top six finishers in the Olympic final raced on the Blue Oval in 2016. Omar McLeod, the 2016 Relays champion in the 110-meter hurdles and the 2015 Relays Most Outstanding Performer as a collegian, became Jamaica’s first gold medalist in the 110-meter hurdles. Michelle Carter was the first 2016 Relays Olympic medalist of the games and her gold medal in the women’s shot put marked the first American gold medal in the event and the first American medal since 1960.  Going into the final round, Carter was in second and claimed the gold medal with her last throw beating the two-time reigning gold medalist, Valerie Adams of New Zealand. Jenny Simpson, the 2016 Relays 1,500 meter champion and favorite of the Drake Stadium crowd, won the first medal by an American in the women’s 1,500 meters with her bronze medal in the event. Katerina Stefanidi, who has competed in the last two Relays and the Court Avenue and Capital Square Vault competitions, became the first Greek gold medalist in the event. She also won an NCAA Championship in 2012 at Drake Stadium. Relays competitors from previous seasons also made history just a few years after competing on the Blue oval.  The months leading up to the 2016 Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee featured the unveiling of numerous ‘Rio Olympic Games Preview’ events assembled by Brian Brown, the Franklin ‘Pitch’ Johnson Director of the Drake Relays. Designed to capture the excitement of an Olympic year, Brown set out to assemble some of the top fields in the world to compete on the Drake Relays’ iconic Blue Oval.But even Brown, in his final year at the helm of the Relays, could not have predicted the degree to which those events would exceed even his own expectation and hype. The ‘Rio Olympic Games Previews’ truly lived up to their name and provided Drake Relays fans with the first opportunity to witness 20 future Olympic medalists compete up close and personal before showcasing their talent to the world in Rio.All told, 62 athletes that competed at the 2016 Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee would go on to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games with 20 of them earning medals in their respective events, including 10 gold medalists. Both of those impressive totals would rank second on the track and field medal table if those athletes were competing as an independent nation. Only the USA’s impressive medal haul exceeded that of athletes from the 2016 Relays. The 10 gold medals earned by 2016 Relays athletes was only three fewer than the number earned by the entire American team. More than half of the USA’s 13 gold medals came from athletes that were at the 2016 Relays.Many of those athletes are likely to return to Drake Stadium in 2017 for the 108th running of the Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee on April 26-29. As always, Relays fans will have the thrill of cheering on reigning Olympic medalists while watching the next generation of Olympic medalists compete on the Blue Oval.In addition to the prestige of capturing an Olympic medal, many of the athletes from the 2016 Relays also made history with their medal winning performances including these highlights.

Fantasy: Premier League TotW

first_imgThe Premier League is back in a big way, but some it’s biggest stars weren’t. In fact, only one of the top 10 most-owned players in the Goal game was even involved in a goal (Salah) – which is is why we advise to find value for your team and not to always rely on your heaviest hitters.Also, following a trend from last season, defenders are offering fantastic value boasting six of the 10 highest scoring players this week. Only one forward made the cut this week and to see who that was, just keep reading.Goal-Fantasy-Football-registertowin Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! GK: Wayne Hennessey – Crystal Palace – 1 Game, 6 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points DF: Jeffrey Schlupp – Crystal Palace – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Clean Sheet = 14 Points Coming in at just 0.68 per cent owned, it was Jeffrey Schlupp who was our Player of the Week in the first round of the Premier League season. He looks a good early out-of-position option as he played this match on the wing despite being listed a defender. That allowed him to be the only “defender” to both score and pick up a clean sheet. Next week’s matchup against Liverpool is a bit scary, but if he can hold onto his spot in the starting XI he may be worth owning in future.DF: Benjamin Mendy – Manchester City – 1 Game, 2 Assists, 1 Clean Sheet = 13 Points HD Benjamin MendyDF: Jose Holebas – Watford – 1 Game, 2 Assists, 1 Clean Sheet = 13 Points DF: Marcos Alonso – Chelsea – 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points DF: Andrew Robertson – Liverpool – 1 Game, 1 Assist, 1 Clean Sheet = 10 Points Robertson had a lot of Fantasy buzz heading into the season, and he backed it up well in MW1. His assist was a fantastic curled low cross to Salah which confirmed that the Scottish left back will continue to get forward and be a creative force this season. With improvements made in front of and behind the defence, Liverpool should concede fewer goals and pick up more clean sheets in 2018-19. As for Robertson, he’s starting to edge into must-own territory.Naby Keita Sadio Mane LiverpoolMF: Sadio Mane – Liverpool – 1 Game, 2 Goals = 14 Points The big question coming into week one was if it was worth paying a premium for Salah, and then Mane pops up and steals his thunder. After the fact, it seems we always should have known that the Senegalese winger would have a big day considering he had scored in Liverpool’s last two opening fixtures as well. Most people already have three of Jurgen Klopp’s men in their team but, if you don’t for some reason, Mane looks a fantastic buy.MF: Roberto Pereyra – Watford – 1 Game, 2 Goals = 14 Points MF: Ruben Neves – Wolves – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points Paul Pogba Man Utd 2018-19MF: Paul Pogba – Manchester United – 1 Game, 1 Goal = 8 Points FWD: Richarlison – Everton – 1 Game, 2 Goals = 12 Points It was very rewarding to see Richarlison put in this kind of performance, having advocated for him for the last month or so. His first goal was a little lucky but the second was an exquisite curling effort that confirmed that he’s found his shooting boots once more. The Brazilian did pick up a calf injury during the match which dims things a little bit for his owners but he delivered in a big way this week so his ownership may still rise before week two. goal-fantasy-football-banner Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

10 months ago​Liverpool boss Klopp reveals Wijnaldum importance

first_img​Liverpool boss Klopp reveals Wijnaldum importanceby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained the importance of Gini Wijnaldum to his team.The Dutch midfielder was in fine form in the 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal at Anfield.With the Reds now seven points clear at the top of the table, Klopp signalled out his central midfielder for praise.”He’s an outstanding player,” said the manager to the club’s official website.”He combines a lot of things that you need. On a one-on-one situation, he can keep the body between the opponent and the ball, then pass the ball.”I don’t know how many positions he’s played. In the double-six he plays really well.”He can play all three positions in midfield and that’s really nice. All the boys are really versatile, to be honest.”Hendo came in on Saturday and played the half-space and helped so much with how we defended. He was really lively. But Gini is in a good moment.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Giggs raps Man Utd defender Rojo for Liverpool goalby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Ryan Giggs has criticised Marcos Rojo for his role in Liverpool’s late equaliser on Sunday.The Englishman was free to tap-in the ball from close range after being allowed space by Rojo.”[Aaron] Wan-Bissaka has not played a lot of games, maybe if he was a little bit fitter and sharper he would have got out quicker,’ Giggs told Optus Sport.”But for Rojo to actually go past [Harry] Maguire is strange. If he holds his position maybe he can clear it. ‘Ash [Young] never really gets goal-side.”But if you watch Rojo he just anticipates where the ball is going to be instead of staying with his man.”I think it’s a poor goal to give away. But Liverpool, for that five and ten minutes, were knocking at the door and there you see Robertson crossing the ball a lot further up the pitch.”Where for the majority of the game, him and Trent Alexander-Arnold were crossing the ball from 40, 45 yards out.” last_img read more
