Swing and a miss: Yankees in another 0-2 playoff hole

first_imgJudy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Game 3 is Monday night at Yankee Stadium, with CC Sabathia scheduled to pitch for New York against Charlie Morton.The Yankees have lost seven straight ALCS games dating to 2010.Verlander was done by the time hard-throwing Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman entered in the ninth with a scoreless streak of 18 2/3 innings dating to the last time he gave up a run, on Aug. 25 against Seattle. But then Altuve hit a one-out single and scored when Carlos Correa lined a double into the right-center gap.Judge cut off the ball at the edge of the warning track, but his throw went over the head of second baseman Starlin Castro to Gregorius on one hop at second base. Gregorius wheeled and, perhaps impeded a bit by Correa’s popup slide at second, short-hopped his throw to Sanchez.The ball arrived in plenty of time to get Altuve, who raced all the way around from first, but Sanchez couldn’t make a clean pick and the ball squirted away as Altuve slid in safely with the winning run.“If he comes up with it, it’s an out,” said Girardi, who quickly inquired with umpires as the Astros and their fans were starting a frenzied celebration. “I just wanted to make sure there was no interference. I didn’t see any interference at second. … It was a popup slide, that’s legal. You’re kind of hoping.”Correa homered in the fourth for the Astros — a play that evoked memories of Jeffery Maier in the 1996 ALCS at Yankee Stadium — when a 12-year-old Houston fan reached for the liner just over the right-field wall. The ball appeared to already be beyond the reach of Judge, who was still moving toward the fence when the ball ricocheted off the boy’s glove on top of the wall and into the seats.“I got back there a little late. He took a good swing on a ball off the plate,” Judge said. “I just wasn’t able to get back and get a good read to the wall and get up there and make a play.”The 6-foot-7 Judge had a homer-robbing grab in Game 3 of the ALDS, when the Yankees won 1-0 to stay alive in that series.A few pitches after Correa’s homer, Girardi and a trainer went out to check on starter Luis Severino when he uncharacteristically wound his pitching arm a few times. The 23-year-old right-hander stayed in the game then, and got the inning-ending out on a comebacker that appeared to strike the wrist of his non-pitching hand.

So just like in the Division Series, the Yankees are down 0-2 and headed back home.“It’s not like we haven’t been here before,” said manager Joe Girardi, who turned 53 on Saturday. “But these are two tough losses.”In their best-of-five set against the 102-win Cleveland Indians, the Yankees won three straight games when facing elimination to get to their first ALCS since 2012. And that was after winning a win-or-go-home wild-card game against Minnesota.But after striking out 14 times in the ALCS opener, including 10 against Keuchel in his seven innings, the Yankees whiffed another 13 times Saturday against Verlander, who threw 124 pitches in a complete game.ADVERTISEMENT Maybe they just need to get to the potential elimination games — the Yankees don’t seem to lose those.“We’ve been facing some tough pitchers and some tough games,” rookie slugger Aaron Judge said. “We’re just going to keep going out there and keep fighting.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogNew York catcher Gary Sanchez was unable to come up with a short-hop relay throw from shortstop Didi Gregorius with Jose Altuve charging toward the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Astros won 2-1 Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven AL Championship Series.Sanchez said he simply dropped the ball on a play he’s used to making. But Severino didn’t come out for the fifth, after the Yankees tied the game on back-to-back doubles by Aaron Hicks and Todd Frazier in the top of the inning. Severino threw only 62 pitches.“I think it is my responsibility to protect this kid,” Girardi said. “I couldn’t take a chance.”Girardi said Severino checked out fine with team doctors. The pitcher certainly didn’t agree with getting pulled so early.“I told him I was good. They told me they saw something,” Severino said. “I told them that I was good and I wanted to go pitch. … I feel great. My arm feels great. I can go 20 or 30 innings more.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Head of State pledges to recognition, elevation of legal fraternity

first_imgPresident David Granger has pledged continued recognition and elevation of members of the legal fraternity.The Head of State was at the time speaking at a ceremony where five lawyers were presented with their Instruments of Commission, appointing them Senior Counsels.President David Granger with the five new Senior Counsels after presenting them with their Instruments of Commission at State House on Wednesday“The conferral of the honour of Senior Counsel has become balanced. Three women, who are ‘learned in the law’, were conferred with the title in 2017 – the first time in our history that women were so recognised. Another outstanding female attorney-at law was appointed a Senior Counsel last year. This year, we honour two eminent female members of the profession,” the President stated.The two female lawyers, who were elevated to senior counsel were Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Shalimar Ali-Hack and Carole James-Boston. They, along with Stephen Fraser, Rajendra Poonai and Robert Ramcharran, were announced as Senior Counsels on December 31, 2018. Their appointments were made effective from January 1, 2019.Addressing the gathering at Wednesday’s ceremony, President Granger told the new Senior Counsels that the parchment they received may fade with age, but the honour that it represents will fortify their profession.“Your preferment will enrich your practice with the passage of time,” he said.According to the Head of State, the conferral of the Senior Counsel title is not a personal favour or political reward but is done on the basis of merit and is uncontaminated by arbitrariness or capriciousness.“The eminent women and men before you today deserve the designation of Senior Counsel by virtue of their erudition, experience and expertise,” he asserted.President Granger further stated that it is his duty to ensure that the conferment of the title of Senior Counsel would be made annually, with regularity and consistency. Failure to confer these awards, he added, would constitute a dereliction of these duties.This year’s conferral of silk is the third such appointment done by President Granger. In 2017, the Head of State appointed Neil Boston, Charles Fung-A-Fat, Justice Roxane George, Llewelyn John, Rafiq Turhan Khan, Vidyanand Persaud, Rosalie Robertson, Justice Claudette Singh, and Legal Affairs Minister and Attorney General Basil Williams, as Senior Counsel.The following year, Kalam Azad Juman-Yassin, Fitz Le Roy Peters, Andrew Pollard and Josephine Whitehead were conferred with silk.Prior to these appointments, the last conferral of silk was done in 1996.last_img read more

L.A. letter?

first_imgI know why Los Angeles did not get the 2016 Olympics. It is because our leadership refuses to deal with the terrible gang problem, which is intensified by the influx of illegal immigrants. The Olympic Committee could not deal with the horrendous freeway traffic, public safety concerns, and a mayor who refuses to do anything about it. With these conditions only getting worse, Los Angeles was a poor choice. – David McCann Agoura Hills DWP drips I have been trying for three weeks with calls to the Department of Water and Power and Councilman Greig Smith’s office to get a water leak on my street repaired. Yet water continues to leak from the DWP water meter. We consumers are asked to conserve water, and soon the well-paid officials will declare drought conditions. What don’t I understand? – Margaret Schneider Granada Hills Fox in the firehouse Re “Costly payout for the LAFD” (April 14): The $1.7 million jury award to the former fire captain is not surprising – the poor management practices under former Los Angeles city Fire Chief Bamattre and his second in command Andy Fox are well documented. What is surprising is that even though Fox was effectively demoted, he has been designated as the LAFD’s “Litigation Risk Manager,” a position mandated by the mayor to reduce risk, lawsuits and large payouts. To place Fox in charge of risk management and lawsuits he is named in, is like placing the fox in charge of the henhouse. Explain that to the taxpayers: They’re footing the bill for the “steady drumbeat of scandals.” – Chris Mattson and Eric Mattson (retired LAFD) Fallbrook Let the cards fall The Democrats are proposing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to bail out homeowners at risk of foreclosure. These homeowners borrowed money they couldn’t afford, at terms they couldn’t sustain, and then used that money to drive housing prices into the stratosphere. They shouldn’t have been in the housing market in the first place. The real victims are the people who were priced out of the market because they refused to accept the lousy terms offered by the lenders. It is time to let this house of cards collapse so that housing prices can adjust to a level supported by the true demand. – Jim Mulvihill Simi Valley Poor, poor CEOs How dare labor ask management to share in providing health care and a livable wage to those who must be healthy enough to do the job just because some executives make more than 500 times as much as the people who actually perform the work? These laborer/producers should be more understanding of the plight of the fat-cat CEOs and managers, after all, to quote the rap song, “It’s hard out there for a pimp.” – Rick Kellis Woodland Hills Smack at Elias Re “Clueless” (Their opinions, April 15): I always eagerly await Mr. Thomas Elias’ columns to see if I can find anything to agree with. No luck so far after years of reading. However, his throwaway retort in the Sunday Viewpoint to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comment that chiropractors can cure earaches caught my eye. Mr. Elias wrote that “there is no evidence to suggest this is true.” Given Mr. Elias’ bleak track record, it follows that chiropractors can cure some earaches, as they certainly cure so many other types of aches. – Tom Reilly Thousand Oaks160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dodgers add to rotation

first_img“Omar felt he needed help in the bullpen and I felt we needed help in the rotation,” Colletti said. In Sanchez, the Mets are getting a 26-year-old right-hander who was 4-7 with a 3.73 ERA in 79 games for the Dodgers in 2005. He was tied for second in the National League in appearances and after assuming the closer’s role in August converted all eight of his save opportunities. Sanchez is expected to serve as the Mets’ top setup man behind new closer Billy Wagner. “It was tough giving (them) up,” Colletti said of Sanchez and Schmoll. “I’ve watched both of them from the other side.” Hamulack, 29, spent 10 seasons in the minors before making it to the big leagues last season. The Mets purchased his contract on Sept. 1 and he made his debut the following day against Florida, retiring the only batter he faced, Carlos Delgado. Colletti expects Hamulack to compete for a role in the bullpen as a left-handed specialist. Schmoll, 25, went 2-2 with a 5.01 ERA with three saves in 48 appearances last year. The right-hander also spent time at Triple-A Las Vegas where he compiled a 0-3 record and 4.78 ERA. vincent.bonsignore@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Seo, a 28-year old from South Korea, comes to the Dodgers along with left-handed reliever Tim Hamulack. In exchange, the Dodgers sent relief pitchers Duaner Sanchez and Steve Schmoll to New York. Seo went 8-2 with a 2.59 ERA in 14 starts with the Mets in 2005, including a 4-0 record and a 1.75 ERA in August. Much like recent free-agent signee Bret Tomko, Seo is the type of durable pitcher Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti prefers. Seo threw more than 200 innings last season between the Mets and Triple-A Norfolk. LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers took another step Wednesday toward rounding out their starting rotation by acquiring Jae Seo from the New York Mets in a four-player deal. In the process, they likely closed the book on Jeff Weaver’s career in Los Angeles while also losing one of their top young relief pitchers. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson“This gives us a little more depth in the starting rotation,” Colletti said. “I think we have a rotation now that’s capable of throwing 180 innings, 200, 210 through all five starters. He’s a durable, hard-working, very determined pitcher. He’s not going to overwhelm you, but he knows how to pitch.” Seo joins a rotation that includes Brad Penny, Derek Lowe, Odalis Perez and Tomko. Although Colletti is on the look out for at least one other starting pitcher, he expressed doubts it will be Weaver, who won 14 games for the Dodgers but is an unsigned free agent. Colletti spoke Tuesday with Weaver’s agent, Scott Boras, and reported no progress on contract talks. “We have a difference of opinion and philosophy,” Colletti said. “And unless we find some common ground, that (situation) may pass us by.” The deal for Seo came together after the Mets and Tampa Bay Devil Rays couldn’t agree on a trade that would have sent Seo to Tampa for reliever Danys Baez. Colletti had been in contact with Mets counterpart Omar Minaya almost every day for the past two weeks, and when talks between the Mets and Devil Rays broke off Minaya and Colletti quickly closed their deal. last_img read more

Wing breaking caused Miami seaplane crash

first_imgMIAMI BEACH, Fla. – The deadly crash of a seaplane shortly after takeoff Monday was apparently caused by the right wing breaking off during flight, investigators said Tuesday. It was unclear why the wing detached. Salvage crews raised the wing out of the channel where the 58-year-old turboprop aircraft crashed within sight of horrified beachgoers. All 20 people on the flight headed to the Bahamas were killed. Corrosion and stress are among the reasons a wing might split from the fuselage, but it could take nine months to a year to report on the probable cause of the crash, said Mark Rosenker, acting chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board. “Unfortunately, we still have a great distance to go,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He told reporters late Tuesday about the wing separation in giving details on what the early part of the investigation has found. The plane crashed into the mouth of Government Cut channel off the southern tip of Miami Beach and is in 35 feet of water. The rest of the plane won’t be raised until today, Coast Guard spokesman Dana Warr said. Rosenker called it a delicate operation because moving the plane too quickly could cause it to break under the weight of the water. Investigators were still trying to find the cockpit voice recorder, which might have captured any noises or the last words of the pilots. But the main portion of the recorder was in the tail, which Rosenker said was difficult to reach because the plane was mangled. last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — November 15, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 11-15-17Clouds are on the increase this morning and we still expect to see some rain in here later this afernoon and evening. This system brings a few hundredths to .4” moisture to the state through midnight tonight. It will be somewhat spotty, with coverage at 70%, but many areas will be on the low end of the range. The best rains likely happen earlier in the afternoon back to our west in Indiana. Behind this front, breezy conditions are in tomorrow. Clouds may hold on longer due to strong northwest flow, but we at least get by with no new precipitation tomorrow.Our strong frontal complex is still on the way for the weekend. Clouds increase Friday afternoon and we see rains from Friday night through the day Saturday. They start light, but pick up intensity through Saturday and can lead to some pretty good totals. We are leaving rain totals at .25”-.75” over 90% of the state through sunset Saturday night. We can’t completely rule out some 1” totals on a localized basis.  The map above shows combined rains today through the weekend.Drier for Sunday and Monday, the same outlook we have been promoting for that period for the past few forecasts. However, we are making some changes for next week. We are going drier from Tuesday forward as the next system we had been projecting for arrival next Tuesday has shifted south. Moisture actually looks to get locked up to the south over the Lower Mississippi valley at midweek. So, we stay dry for Tuesday right on through the end of the week. But cold air looks more impressive now for Thanksgiving Day and on through the balance of the holiday weekend. A strong surface high comes out of Canada and parks right on top of the eastern US. This keeps moisture locked up well to the south, but puts temps below normal right on through the holiday weekend.In the extended period, we may see some of that moisture from the Deep South move into the OH valley late next Sunday as the cold core high starts to move off to the north and east. That looks to allow a more active pattern to gain ground again, with rains developing around Thursday the 30th. The rains will be under a half an inch and will favor the southern part of the state if things play out as we see them right now.Overall, the biggest headlines this morning are the potential for heavy rain still this weekend, drier weather next week, and a cold push for the holiday weekend.last_img read more
