Bullpen Woes Continues; Indians Fall in Stunning Fashion to Reds 7-4, Three Takeaways

first_imgCLEVELAND – This week, we can all say that this is the biggest test the Indians will go through before the All-Star break hits Monday.Question is, will the Tribe pass? So far, no.The Indians lost to the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 thanks to a seven-run inning from the Reds Tuesday night.Before the game escalated quick, seemingly things were going right for the Tribe, leading 4-0 entering the ninth inning.The last time Indians blew a four-run lead in the ninth was in 2007 against the New York Yankees.The offense got off to a fast start in the first two innings. Also, Trevor Bauer pitched tremendously, going almost the distance.He is the three takeaways from the loss.1. Bauer strong outingAll-Star Trevor Bauer pitched like an All-Star as he should have earned his ninth win of the year. For him, he was able to stay focus and trusting his pitches.The right-hander pitched eight innings, giving up three hits and striking out 12 Reds batters.Bauer made history in the game as well, as he became the third pitcher in franchise history to reach 160 strikeouts before the All-Star break.It was just a shame and all went for nothing.2. Bullpen woesThe 4-0 lead didn’t last long as the Reds rallied  back scoring seven times in the awful 9th inning.First starting with Jose Peraza hitting an RBI pinch-hit single to right to get the Reds on the board.Adam Duvall pitched hit for Billy Hamilton and made it a 4-3 ball game ripping a two-run double to left-center. That was the end of Cody Allen’s night.Then it was Dan Otero turn to try to end the game but it wasn’t the case as Joey Votto launched a three-run double to right field, putting the Reds up for good 6-4.3. Much needed victory in the Finale Let’s be honest, after a rough series against Oakland losing two out of three this past weekend and losing in the series opener against the Reds, Tuesday was a much-needed win but was not case.With tonight’s loss, the Indians dropped to 49-42 and looking for a series win in the finale before a four-game series against the New York Yankees.Carlos Carrasco will take the bump for the Tribe facing Reds starter Tyler Mahle.

AGDC Hires New President, Highest-Paid State Official

first_imgFormer President Dan Fauske resigned late in 2015, but it wasn’t entirely clear if the move was voluntary, or had been requested by the Governor. At the time of Fauske’s resignation, Nikiski’s Speaker of the House Mike Chenault wrote, “It’s a dark day in Alaska history when we replace the president of a corporation and two more board members who were doing critical work to ensure we make the best decisions on a huge cash call, when we are getting closer to a FEED decision. What in the world is going on here? What kind of message does that send to Alaskans, industry and our project partners? The clock is ticking and now we have to bring two more members up to speed without a proven leader. This is a troubling move.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Despite calls from the Governor to cut down on high-paid out-of-state oil executives, the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation has named a new President, a Texas resident who will be the state’s highest-paid executive. Incoming President Keith Meyer of Texas will have a base salary of $550,000, with a potential bonus of $200,000. Fauske earned $366,000.center_img Fauske was widely respected in the State Legislature, as lawmakers and the Governor’s Administration struggled to see eye to eye on gasline issues. The AGDC Board says Meyer has the experience necessary to help develop the state’s interests in building a pipeline from the North Slope to tidewater.last_img read more

Hexed – JFF finds possible World Cup ­Qualifying structure changes ­‘disadvantageous’

first_imgJamaica Football Federation (JFF) general secretary Dalton Wint says that any potential changes to the Concacaf hexagonal round for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers could present challenges to the nation’s aim of qualifying for Qatar 2022. Wint’s comments were in response to Concacaf president Victor Montagliani’s recent remarks indicating changes to the six-team format because of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Leagues around the world have been suspended or forced to end their seasons while FIFA suspended its March and June international friendly windows. He is also doubtful about matches being played in September, including the start of the hexagonal round. In an interview with Canada’s onesoccer.com on Tuesday, Montagliani hinted that the final round could be expanded to have more countries although he gave no indications on how it would work.“Obviously, it would be bigger, but what that number is, I don’t know until we have a calendar. Until we know from FIFA how many windows we have, it’s going to be very hard for me to say it’s going to be this, that, or the other,” Montagliani said. POSSIBLE DRAWBACK Wint says that the prospective changes could be a drawback for the JFF. “It might be disadvantageous to us,” he said. “It depends on how the fixtures are set up because we do have a plan in our heads that we are approaching corporate Jamaica with, and that is to play 10 games. If we are having more games with a shorter time, then you might have some difficulty in acquiring the services of your best players, the facilities that you might need may not be available to you if you have more games, and the timeline in which to complete these things could cause us not to be prepared as properly as we would have wanted.”The hexagonal round, or the “hex” as it is commonly called, is normally used by Concacaf to determine the region’s World Cup qualifying countries. Currently, Jamaica is ranked fourth in the region according to the latest FIFA world rankings, a position that would see them qualify for the final round should the rankings remain unchanged by the cut-off period in June. Mexico, the United States, Costa Rica, and Honduras are the other countries in the top six poised to join the Reggae Boyz.While Wint says that he wants Jamaica to maintain the advantage it has earned, he would not be opposed to a Concacaf proposal that makes sense.“If there is something put on the table that is feasible and reasonable, then we will accept it,” he said. daniel.wheeler@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more

Schwarzer thanks ‘unbelievable’ Mourinho

first_imgMark Schwarzer has thanked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for allowing him to leave and says it was the prospect of playing Premier League football again that lured him away from Stamford Bridge.Schwarzer, 42, was third choice goalkeeper behind both Thibaut Courtois and Petr Cech and his chances of appearing for the first team looked slim.But the move to the Foxes on an 18-month deal is likely to see him go straight into the side, replacing Ben Hamer while the number one keeper Kasper Schmeichel is injured.AdChoices广告Schwarzer said: “Chelsea have been excellent and Jose Mourinho has been unbelievable in allowing me to leave.“It was a really amicable split from the club and I have a lot of time for everyone at Chelsea for allowing me to have this next challenge.“It is a new challenge in my career and one I think will be very exciting“It was the draw of being able to be more involved and hopefully being able to play some football in the Premier League. I have come here with the hope of playing football.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook See also:Keeper Schwarzer signs new Blues dealLeicester announce signing of Schwarzerlast_img read more

Ole Miss and TCU create unlikely but exciting Peach Bowl

first_imgOXFORD — It’s the matchup no one saw coming, but is a potential boon for the Peach Bowl.No. 9 Ole Miss will play No. 6 TCU in the Atlanta-based bowl game on Dec. 31, which seemed unlikely for both schools just 48 hours before.The Horned Frogs (11-1) were No. 3 in last week’s College Football Playoff rankings, and therefore had reason to believe a blowout win of Iowa State on Saturday was enough to seal their stop in the top four. And the Rebels (9-3) were at home, believing they had lost one too many times this season.But Ohio State leap-frogged over TCU into the playoff, and a loss by Kansas State pushed Ole Miss into the New Year’s access bowl games. The College Football Playoff selection committee then put together the matchup: the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense (Ole Miss, 13.8 points per game) against the No. 2 scoring offense (TCU, 46.8).“You can’t write that up to have a better bowl game,” Peach Bowl president Gary Stokan said.Ole Miss headed to the Peach Bowl against TCUHow did coaches vote for Ole Miss in final poll?Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and TCU coach Gary Patterson are friends, and both spoke at length about their respect for the other. Freeze even admitted that when Ole Miss beat then-No. 4 Mississippi State on Nov. 29, he told his assistant coaches that he hoped it would push TCU into the playoff.But he did not have as much confidence about his own team’s bowl chances until the favorites won on the last Saturday of the season; Freeze said he went to bed believing his team would make it into the top-10 and into one of the four bowl games just below the playoff.Perhaps because of that, Freeze said he was not concerned with ending the season, in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, at the same place it started. Ole Miss beat Boise State 35-13 on Aug. 28, the start of a seven-game winning streak that propelled Ole Miss to as high as No. 3 nationally. The Rebels lost three in a row in the SEC, but recovered to beat Mississippi State (its second win against teams in the top 10).“To be one of the first teams chosen in the New Year’s six bowls and to come to a place that is extremely dear to us in Atlanta and particularly the Peach Bowl … we’re honored,” Freeze said.What Ole Miss has accomplished this season will be enough, Patterson insisted, for his team to get over the fact it is not playing in the Sugar or Rose Bowls as part of the playoff.“They wanted to play somebody that was a caliber of a top five team and we feel like Ole Miss is that team,” Patterson said.Ole Miss is going to its third-straight bowl game, but has not been the Peach since 1971. TCU has never been to Atlanta for a bowl game, and is coming off a 4-8 season that was only the second time in 16 years the Horned Frogs missed the postseason.“This senior class was redshirted when we won the Rose Bowl (in 2011),” Patterson said. “It was one of their goals to get back to one of these games.”Ole Miss is 5-1 against TCU alltime, but has not played the school since 1983. The programs previously met in the 1948 Delta Bowl and 1956 Cotton Bowl.last_img read more

Player could travel to London today to sign for Arsenal –…

first_imgDespite late claims of Manchester United interest, which appeared to be to rush people to get the deal done, Lille’s Gabriel narrowed his options down to two choices: Arsenal or Napoli.It became clear that for Napoli he’d have to wait, potentially for over a month, with the club not seeming on the verge of selling Kalidou Koulibaly.Signing Gabriel was dependent on their own defender’s exit, and with Manchester City not rushing to complete a deal, it gave Arsenal a clearer path to securing the Brazilian.L’Equipe report Gabriel will travel to London today or ‘at the latest’ tomorrow. There he will undergo a medical and sign a five year contract with Arsenal.RMC agree, although they believe the player will travel on Tuesday.There’s no explanation over what will happen with regards to quarantine. Should Gabriel be in France still, then he’d be required to self-isolate for two weeks upon his arrival in London, which would clearly make a medical difficult.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayDBSOne-pot wonderDBSUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
