Antonio Senzatela got a no-decision after pitching seven scoreless innings.Jake Cronenworth hit a two-run double and Wil Myers had an RBI single during San Diego’s three-run eighth that tied it at 3.“They’ve got a good offensive team statistically across the board, so we know what we’re up against with them,” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “We had them shut out through seven. We had two strikes and two outs on them a couple of different times (in the eighth) and we couldn’t put them away.”Senzatela bounced back from his last outing in which he allowed a career-high four home runs in an 11-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He gave up seven hits, walked one and struck out three.Daniel Bard (2-2) worked a scoreless ninth for the victory. Ryan McMahon started the Colorado ninth with a single up the middle off Craig Stammen (3-2). Hampson walked, and Josh Fuentes hit into a fielder’s choice before Murphy lined sharply to left. It was the sixth career game-ending hit for Murphy.center_img August 30, 2020 “I thought we scattered some hits, ran into a couple outs on the bases, the double plays,” San Diego manager Jayce Tingler said, referring to a pair of double plays the Rockies turned, including one by first baseman Ryan McMahon when he snared a line drive by Trent Grisham and quickly stepped on the bag to double off Luis Torrens in the fifth.“If that ball gets down the line maybe we can get something going,” Tingler said.Left-hander Adrian Morejon was a late scratch as San Diego’s starter and he was placed on the 10-day injured list. The team did not specify the reason for the move, and turned to a pitching by committee approach, starting with Michel Baez.Trailing 3-0 going into their half of the eighth after coming up empty against Senzatela, the Padres got to reliever Carlos Estevez to even the score.

Marek Dolezaj’s career outing propels Syracuse past Wake Forest, 73-64

first_imgNEW YORK — Everything was settled, but freshman forward Oshae Brissett understood there was one thing missing in this moment.The orange sea of fans writhed in the Barclays Center lower bowl. The players knew they got to play tomorrow. The team’s unlikely star, though, had a near-perfect night. Near. Brissett walked up to Marek Dolezaj and told him what he needed to do.“You’re not leaving here with 19 points,” Brissett told him. “You need to get 20.”On the next in-bounds, Brissett found Dolezaj, who was fouled and went to the line with 31 seconds left. He followed Brissett’s instructions to post a new career-high, but not before missing the first free-throw and hitting the second. Two games ago, Dolezaj didn’t attempt a shot and Tuesday night his game-high 20 complemented his four rebounds and one assist to lead No. 11-seed Syracuse (20-12, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) to a 73-64 victory over No. 14-seed Wake Forest (11-20, 4-12).This was the first-ever ACC tournament victory for the Orange and snapped a four-game losing streak on this court. The win sent Syracuse into a second-round matchup with No. 6-seeded North Carolina on Wednesday night at 9 p.m. at the Barclay’s Center.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDolezaj was an instrumental part of that, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said, adding, “He was very, very good today.”As Dolezaj spoke at his locker after the game, the Slovakian freshman seemed transported back to Europe. Each time someone asked him, “Have you ever done…” he smiled shyly and said that, yes, he had done something like this before, but not since coming to the United States last fall. Back in Europe, back with the under-18 national team, he said, he once scored 48 points, once dunked three times in one game and once played like the flying, slamming, swatting bulldozer he became Tuesday night.When asked how his performance felt, Dolezaj said seriously, “It was a little fun. I enjoyed this game. I’m going to get some rest for tomorrow’s game.”All of it started with a simple jumper from the high post.It was the shot fans in the Carrier Dome have begged Dolezaj to put up all season. It was the shot Boeheim has frantically motioned him to take. It was one of the Dome’s main frustrations during Syracuse’s Saturday win over Clemson, because when Dolezaj got the ball in the high-post, he refused to shoot. He heard their urging, but he adhered to Boeheim’s instructions.“A lot of people told me shoot the ball,” he said, “but I’m trying to focus on my game and what I can do.”Early in the first half, Dolezaj drilled one from the high-post. Then he fell into a funk. He threw the ball away, missed his follow-up jumper and picked up a foul boxing out. Then Wake Forest big man Doral Moore whacked him in the face with his elbow and Dolezaj transformed.After that play, which had Dolezaj holding his head for several possessions afterward, he finished an and-1 despite getting stonewalled by two larger defenders. He tear-dropped a floater and the bench mob sprang to its feet to emulate his shot. He finished at the rim and, once, when a pass from Chukwu deflected off a defender’s hands, he snared the ball from midair and jammed it home.Courtesy of Shea R. KastrinerWhen asked when he knew Dolezaj was turning a few baskets into a bona fide career night, Brissett grinned.“He caught like three bodies,” Brissett said, referring to the trio of defenders Dolezaj dunked on. “So, probably the first one. I haven’t really seen him dunk on someone like that before.”Late in the first half, Wake Forest switched from a man defense to a zone. Boeheim saw defenders departing Dolezaj in the middle and the short corner to leave him open. Methodically, Syracuse dissected Wake Forest’s zone and bludgeoned the Demon Deacons into submission with passing inside between center Paschal Chukwu, who had three assists, and Dolezaj.Wake Forest started to press late in the game and Dolezaj became the primary breaker. In that scenario, he dunked twice. Boeheim told him since the defender always ran out to stop the ball, Dolezaj would have an open lob to Chukwu. On the last time he carried the ball up, with the game winding down, and with the Orange’s lead stretched to nearly 20, that’s exactly what happened and Chukwu flushed Dolezaj’s alley-oop to essentially bang the gavel on Wake Forest’s fate.On each basket Dolezaj finished or facilitated, Syracuse assistant head coach Adrian Autry reacted with a harder fist pump or clap. By the time Dolezaj sank that last free throw, Autry was on his feet.Of all his plays, though, no moment was more revealing than his and-1 dunk, when he launched himself through contact to jam. His team bounced and hollered in disbelief. “I was pretty impressed to see that,” Tyus Battle said, “because we know he has the one-foot bounce, but I was surprised about the two feet.”As he came down from the rim, Dolezaj himself broke the blank, impassive face he’d worn nearly every minute of this season. He appeared to yell over to the same bench that had egged him on earlier and betray a quick smile, a window that closed as quickly as it opened. On this night, on this stage, the young, lightly recruited, Flat Stanley-thin foreigner played his best game of the season.After it was over, as the quiet settled like a fog and the team hurried off the court and the fans, who had been shrieking for him moments earlier, shuffled back to the exits and real life, the bright light of an ESPN camera found Dolezaj. The reporter put the microphone in Dolezaj’s face. The player disappeared; the person withdrew. Dolezaj didn’t think he spoke English well enough to give a national TV interview. He felt uncomfortable. Autry, standing beside him, waved away the camera. Dolezaj walked to the locker room.He showed everyone everything they needed to see.

Sarah gives men’s golf a new look in Kent

first_img Tags: County Secretary, Kent, Sarah McDonald 14 Dec 2017 Sarah gives men’s golf a new look in Kent It’s all change in Kent where the very traditional men’s County Golf Union is set to give the sport a modernising shake-up in the New Year.They’ve just appointed Sarah McDonald (pictured) as their first female county secretary – and reorganised her job so that the union can be more supportive of the 85 clubs it represents.Kent county chairman Peter Long commented: “It’s going to be quite different. We are trying to get away from the old style approach and the view that golf is just a male led club – it isn’t.”The union has also set out to appoint a golf manager to look after all the county’s tournaments and playing activities and support golf development. This will allow Sarah to spend more time working directly with clubs.It’s all part of sending a message to clubs that the county union is a forward-thinking organisation which is responding to their needs. “We are changing the way we deal with clubs and with our members,” added Peter.Sarah is already a familiar face within the Kent golfing community. She’s a seven-handicap member at Wildernesse and Littlestone golf clubs, plays for the county women’s second team and was the secretary of the County Ladies’ Association for six years.She’s happy to be breaking new ground, commenting: “This job appealed as a way to help move golf forward.”Sarah will be working closely with Charles Molony, England Golf’s Club Support Officer for Kent, and she added: “I want to listen to clubs, find out what they want from the county and work with them to help them achieve their aims.”They’ll find they are dealing with a woman who has a passion for the sport. “I like the fact that golf is for everyone, for people of all abilities and ages,” she said, enthusing about initiatives which encourage more people to play, such as nine-hole golf and gender neutral tees.Sarah starts her new role at the beginning of January.last_img read more

Heavyweight champion of the Bodybuilding world is a real gift

first_imgMR. OLYMPIA PHIL ‘THE GIFT’ HEATH (Photo by Rossano P. Stewart) Two-time Mr. Olympia champion Phil “The Gift” Heath and eight of the top ten IFBB Professional bodybuilders in the world was in attendance at the Muscle Tech 2013 NPC Pittsburgh Championships Saturday night at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall.Some were expecting thrown chairs, verbal abuse—a nasty stage brawl of Jerry Springer-like proportions. Instead, Heath, Kai Green, Shawn Rhoden, Dexter Jackson, Branch Warren, Dennis Wolf, Jay Cutler and James Flex Lewis signed autographs, took pictures with the fans and showed respect for one another.This is the only show in the world where the top-six from Mr. Olympia all come together to guest pose,” said Heath, the number one ranked bodybuilder in the world. “We come here every year because of Jim Manion,” Heath said.Yes, we can put a man on the moon, map the human genome and weave a toupee for William Shatner, but nobody can figure out a way to beat “The Gift”.Heath is huge, he’s hungry and his greatest gift of all is remaining the King of the Hill. That’s the only thing on his mind.Heath said that his outstanding conditioning and small waist is the reason he spanked the big boys, some of whom has far more experience. “Winning the Mr. Olympia, the Super Bowl of Bodybuilding and doing it back-to-back years, is like no other experience,” said Heath. “I’m only 33 years old. The best is yet to come.”In recent years, we’ve been amazed when a bodybuilder manages to turn pro in his mid-20s, because for a while it definitely seemed as if guys were getting their pro cards’ later and later – sometimes at nearly 40 years old. But “The Gift” earned IFBB Pro status well before he hit 30.Heath grew up in Seattle, and he tried several sports, but by junior high school it was clear that basketball was where he shined.“I always loved basketball but I didn’t have any brothers or sisters to play with and one day I came home from school and my step dad put up a basketball hoop over the garage,” said Heath. “Basketball is a sport that you don’t need anyone else. All you need is a hoop and a ball. I developed a great 3-point jump shot.”He attended Rainer Beach High School and led them to a state basketball title. One of his former teammates, Jamal Crawford, currently plays for the Los Angeles Clippers. Heath attended the University of Denver on a full athletic scholarship.“My senior year in high school we were ranked No. 21 in the country by USA Today,” said Heath. “I was the first basketball player in my high school to receive a division I scholarship and Jamal Crawford was the second. Nate Robinson and Terrence Williams were after us.”It was not until 2002 that Heath pursued bodybuilding and turned Pro in 2005.“I played college basketball for four years at the University of Denver and began to lift weights with some bodybuilders,” said Heath. “I won every amateur contest that I entered and earned my Pro card after competing for only two years.”Bodybuilding has a strange relationship with the mainstream. Everybody in America know—or thinks they know—what bodybuilding is, but only true fans really understand the sport and know who the top bodybuilders are. As professional athletes, bodybuilders receive very little exposure outside of contests, personal appearances and the magazines that support their sport.“I wasn’t an amateur for very long, but part of the reason for my early success was my balancing act. I have things outside of bodybuilding that make me miss it to various degrees. I will never tire of bodybuilding, because I will never let it consume me. I’m exceptionally cultured in terms of music, stimulating friends and family ties, and I read to get a full assessment of what’s going on in the world. My wife also helps keep me balanced, because she’s in a field outside of bodybuilding.At the same time, I’m a bodybuilding historian. I know who my predecessors were, where they came from, some of what their motivations were. It’s good to see the past, so you can study journey, know where it’s leading and have a firmer hand in directing it destination.Don’t be a one-dimensional bodybuilder. Look beyond the protein bars and the weights, as well as beyond the competition. Make sure you have a life in concert with the physical aspect. Stimulate your mind, so your body can grow. We see so many guys limit themselves. As a result, they wind up bitter about the sport, broke because of the sport, and alone because of relationships they cannot maintain. Bodybuilding is fun, but at the end of the day, it’s a responsibility for leading a journey of exploration that can take you to the lowest lows or the highest highs.  “My basketball coach use to tell us to “cut their head off” and that’s what I plan to do to my opponents everytime I step on the stage. I think I can do this for ten more years. So my gift to all of you will be all of my competitor heads. One-by-one.”last_img read more

Nuclear Affair, Future King fancied for Guineas classics

first_imgA bumper crowd is expected a Caymanas Park today for the season’s first classics, the 42nd running of the Post to Post 1000 and 2000 Guineas for native bred three-year-old fillies and colts, respectively, over a mile.Both races are being sponsored by the betting and gaming entity, Post to Post, for the second consecutive year and will again offer purses of $3.25 million.Of the 13 fillies declared for the 1000 Guineas, there is a definite standout in the form of NUCLEAR AFFAIR, who is unbeaten in two starts this season.Trained by Gary Subratie, who also saddles the recent winners, CLASSY AVIATOR and GOLDEN GLORY, NUCLEAR AFFAIR caught the eye in four races as a two-year-old last season, culminating in her brave effort on Boxing Day when caught on the line by the top colt, FUTURE KING, in the $4.25 million Supreme Ventures two-year-old Stakes over this trip.According to Subratie, the bay filly by Nuclear Wayne out of Commandra Affair has not put a foot wrong since.”She is really a class act and truly impressed with her last performance, three weeks ago, when winning the Thornbird Trial Stakes over seven furlongs from well off the pace.PRINCIPAL DANGER”She has worked well in her preparation for this race and with a mile even more to her liking, I am pretty confident she will deliver with former champion jockey Dane Nelson again in the saddle,” said the second-generation trainer, who previously won the 1000 Guineas with NIPHAL in 2011.To my mind, the principal danger to NUCLEAR AFFAIR is highly regarded SORENTINO’S STAR, to be ridden by leading all-time classic winning jockey, Winston ‘Fanna’ Griffiths, for 14-time champion trainer, Philip Feanny.She beat FUTURE KING in the $3.6 million Pick-3 Super Challenge Trophy over 1400metres last November, and although failing to impress under topweight in the recent Thornbird Stakes, has worked well and should complete the exacta.If NUCLEAR AFFAIR is the one to beat in the fillies Guineas, the same holds true for Wayne DaCosta-trained FUTURE KING (Robert Halledeen up) in the 2000 Guineas, despite a recent setback (hoof injury) which forced him out of a recent overnight allowance race.DaCosta disclosed that although missing from exercise for two weeks, FUTURE KING, who returned to the exercise track late last week, is on the way back and although a bit short of work “his class should see him through” at the expense of recent Prince Consort Stakes winner, CHACE THE GREAT, runner-up ORPHEUS and BIGDADDYKOOL.Other firm fancies on the 11-race programme are BERRANCA to go one better in the first race, CONCLUSION in the fifth, SUPER COP in the sixth and ORIGINAL TRAIN in the 10th for overnight allowance horses.last_img read more

Is Anyone Out There? Support System Obstacles Faced by Single Parents in the Military

first_imgBy: Jason M. Jowers, MS Boy blowing bubbles and holding hands with a parent Return to article. Long DescriptionPexels[Boy Blowing Bubbles by leeroy on April 28, 2015, CC0]Family stress can be at an all-time high within military families during times of deployment. This is even more so true for single-parent military families. The REACH Center at the University of Minnesota conducts research that can help us to better identify and address key issues that impact military service members and their families. A research study they conducted in 2015 found that single parents in the military experienced higher stress levels during times of deployment, had lower levels of social support, and had a harder time reintegrating with their families and children post-deployment [1].So what can single parents in the military do when they are called up for deployment? Who do they reach out to as caregivers for their children while they are gone? Military One Source has a quick read article on ways to plan and organize to prepare before, during, and after deployment [2]. These tips include: choosing caregivers, arranging finances, keeping routines, and talking to kids about the changes. Deployments are tough on single parent households but are doable with a plan and careful consideration.For more info on both the emotional and financial toll that single parenting can have on military families, tune into to this archived webinar, “Separation & Single Parenting in the Military” from our Family Finances Series. This series was a collaboration between the MFLN Personal Finance team and MFLN Family Development and provides CEUs for financial professionals as well as social workers and therapists.To hear personal experiences of single parents who are also active duty military personnel, take a listen to our Anchored podcast episode, “Double Duties: Exploring Single Parenthood in the Military.” CEUs are still available for those who are interested.References[1] Vaughn-Coaxum, R., Smith, B.

HRD panel hears both sides, to visit JNU tomorrow

first_imgOffice-bearers of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) as well as student councillors from various schools at the university met the high-power committee set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development at Shastri Bhawan on Wednesday and aired their concerns regarding hostel fee hike.In a separate meeting, various deans of the university also met the three-member panel and explained to them the rationale behind the revision of hostel charges.The JNUSU in a statement said, “We put across our view that the Inter Hall Administration meeting, which passed the fee hike and other unacceptable provisions in the hostel manual, was illegal as elected students’ representatives were not a part of it.” The union added that it made several attempts and appeals to start a dialogue process with Vice-Chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar and his team, but it was clear that the administration did not want to work towards the resolution of the “crisis”. “We impressed upon the committee that until M. Jagadesh Kumar remains the JNU V-C, normalcy will be a far cry on the campus,” the statement said.The union said that it was willing to arrive at a new hostel manual passed through an acceptable deliberative process.The committee members gave a patient hearing to the students and assured them of another meeting when they visit the campus on Friday. “The students were pent up and they shared their concerns. The main thrust is that they expect more transparency, and a more participatory process,” said former UGC chairman V.S. Chauhan, who is a member of the panel.“We are focused on the core issue of hostel fee hike. We have invited students to come up with suggestions and will meet them again on Friday,” said Dr. Chauhan.“Everyone seems eager to resolve the issues quickly,” said the panel member, adding that a report with recommended actions will be submitted to the HRD Ministry “very soon”.The deans of the schools said in a statement: “We requested the committee to recommend increase in funds for the university so that students from economically poor section are able to afford a JNU education.”last_img read more

Mitrović wanted to sign for Fulham from the beginning
