UW splits doubleheader with OSU

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald file photoWisconsin’s softball team began their doubleheader against Ohio State Saturday with a chance to make the Big Ten postseason tournament. But like they have done so many times this season, the Badgers lost it in the seventh inning.UW lost the first game 6-3, but came back to win the second game 4-3. In both games the seventh inning played a critical role.In the second game, the Badgers rebounded from a tough loss to steal a win in the seventh inning.“It was nice to get a win, but it is kind of bittersweet,” freshman Livi Abney said. “As a team, we are glad that we can pull out a win in the seventh inning, but it is hard to enjoy it knowing we can’t go to the Big Ten tournament anymore. I feel really bad for our seniors because all they wanted was to make the tournament.”The Buckeyes scored a run in the first inning, and through the first three frames, it didn’t appear as if the Badgers had recovered mentally from losing the series opener. UW loaded the bases three times in the first three innings, and three times they failed to score a run. For the game, the Badgers left thirteen runners on base.“We had been swinging the bats really well, but when the bases were loaded we failed to execute,” sophomore Letty Olivarez said. “I don’t know if we were still thinking of the other game, but we definitely didn’t do what we were supposed to.”The Badgers managed to score one run in the fifth inning, evening the score at 1-1 heading into the seventh. The Buckeyes then took the lead back, however, with some timely hitting and defensive miscues by the Badgers. Although there were no errors in the inning, there were several plays that UW could have made to keep OSU from scoring, most notably a dropped fly ball from freshman center fielder Jennifer Krueger.“I wouldn’t say it was frustrating that Krueger dropped the ball because she did give it all her effort,” Olivarez said. “It was a bit of a downer, though, to have worked so hard and left the inning two runs down.”Three outs away from losing their second game in the seventh inning, the Badgers responded in a big way. Senior Lynn Anderson led off the inning with a single, and Abney followed with a monstrous two-run home run to tie the game 3-3. After a Krueger walk and a Joey Daniels double, there were runners on second and third with junior Theresa Boruta coming to the plate. Boruta — a left-handed slap hitter — grounded the ball down the third baseline and managed to leg out a single as the OSU third baseman’s throw was late. On the throw to first, Krueger made a break for home, knocking the ball from the catcher’s glove with an aggressive slide and giving the Badgers a come-from-behind win.“I managed to turn around right as the play at the plate was happening,” Boruta said. “Jennifer [Krueger] was late, but she had made up her mind and was aggressive so it worked out. That is the type of play where you can’t think, you just have to react, which she did.”In the first game Saturday, the Badgers were playing for their postseason life. If UW won their next four games they would still be in the running for a berth in the Big Ten postseason tournament.Things started off well for UW as they scored one run in the fourth and two runs in the sixth frame to take a 3-0 lead heading into the seventh inning. Sophomore Katie Soderberg and freshman Livi Abney — the seventh and eighth hitters in the order — each contributed an RBI in the sixth inning.“As a team we have been putting together some really good at-bats lately,” Olivarez said. “Every player on our team has been hitting well, so we don’t have to just depend on the middle of the order to score some runs. We have been more aggressive at the plate, and it has paid off these last few games.”In the seventh inning, however, everything unraveled for the Badgers. Junior pitcher Leah Vanevenhoven pitched six scoreless innings, but appeared to have run out of gas in the seventh. Vanevenhoven hit two batters, walked another and gave up two singles to leave the bases loaded with the Badgers leading 3-2. Wisconsin lost the lead and, consequently, lost a chance to go to the Big Ten tournament when Ohio State first baseman Tory Haddad cleared the bases with a three-run triple.“I felt really bad for Leah [Vanevenhoven],” Olivarez said. “She had pitched really well all game, but maybe she was out there for one inning too many. Her control had been really good all game, but she started to miss her spots in the seventh.”last_img read more

Gallery: Syracuse upsets No. 17 Duke, 68-65

first_imgSyracuse (19-7, 7-6 Atlantic Coast) shot 11-of-19 from 3 in the first half on Thursday. The second half didn’t come as easily though. The Orange scored just 25 points in the final 20 minutes. But when it mattered, Tiana Mangakahia knocked down her fifth 3 and SU got a key stop. It was enough to upset No. 17 Duke (20-7, 9-5), 68-65, in a crucial win as the regular season winds down. Comments Published on February 15, 2018 at 11:13 pm Facebook Twitter Google+last_img

Phillies’ Jake Arrieta critical of Bryce Harper’s fourth-inning ejection in loss to Mets

first_imgThe loss dropped Philadelphia’s record to 12-10 and in a tie with the Mets for the lead in the National League East. This was an odd game as it didn’t start until 8:45 p.m. ET due to a weather delay, but the Phillies never got going at the plate, scoring just one run on three hits mostly against starter Steven Matz, who had allowed eight runs (six earned) without recording an out in his last time out.Arrieta wasn’t bad as he allowed four runs (three earned) in six innings of work in the loss, but he was also critical of how he and the team came out for a game they really wanted to win, even if it is early in the season.”We were flat from start to finish. Two-hour delay, it doesn’t matter. We have to be ready to play. We weren’t, and it showed,” he said. “The dugout was flat. The defense wasn’t good. Didn’t throw the ball well as a staff overall. We got beat. We started at 8:45. I don’t think our guys were ready to play. We’ve got to come out (Tuesday) ready to play.” Jake Arrieta knows what it takes to win a championship. In 2016, he helped the Cubs win their first World Series since 1908.When a guy experiences something like that, he comes to understand that every game matters — even ones in April — and every player has to be on the field. So when the Phillies lost to the Mets 5-1 on Monday and Bryce Harper was ejected in the fourth inning, he noticed, and he let his right fielder know it. MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZN”Look, I mean, (Harper’s) got to understand we need him in right field,” Arrieta said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I don’t care how bad the umpire is. He wasn’t great for either side. I’m out there trying to make pitches, and he misses some calls. So what? We need him out there. I need him in right field, I need him at the plate, and he wasn’t there. So that hurts.”Harper wasn’t even ejected after arguing his own balls and strikes. He was tossed during a Cesar Hernandez at-bat when he yelled from the dugout and was subsequently run by home plate umpire Mark Carlson.Carlson later told pool reporters he heard comments from the dugout “that were inappropriate” and tossed Harper soon after.There were some on-field fireworks at Citi Field as both Gabe Kapler and Bryce Harper argue with home plate umpire Mark Carlson.Bryce Harper has been ejected from the game. pic.twitter.com/KyM0M8GsMB— NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBCSPhilly) April 23, 2019Harper was honest after the game, saying he has to be more in control even when he gets emotional.“It just can’t happen from my side,” Harper said. “In a game like that against the Mets, division rival, it just can’t happen, for me, myself and this team as well. We’re a better team with me in the lineup, and I’ve got to stay in there.”last_img read more

WWE Super ShowDown 2019 results: Undertaker defeats Goldberg, Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston retain titles

first_img– Braun Strowman defeats Bobby Lashley.- Lars Sullivan mauls The Lucha House Party.- The Usos get the win against The Revival. WWE Super ShowDown was billed as a show that was “equal if not better than WrestleMania.” While it had the pomp and circumstance of the annual extravaganza, that’s where the comparison ended.The show ended with the first-ever meeting between legends with The Undertaker squaring off against Goldberg. Maybe this would have worked 20 years ago when both men were in their prime but on this night in the blistering heat in Saudi Arabia, it turned out to be a sloppy, tedious affair with “The Deadman” scoring the win. One of the themes going into the show – which took place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia – was that Brock Lesnar would finally cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. Instead, that turned out to be just the latest tease of him cashing in. After Seth Rollins defeated Baron Corbin to retain the Universal Championship, Lesnar was ready to take advantage of the moment. However, it was Rollins beating him down with a steel chair and the cash in never happened.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearIt was a rough night in the tough conditions with the temperature more than 100 degrees around the ring with the high moment being a local favorite winning the 50-man battle royal.Check out Sporting News’ complete WWE Super ShowDown 2019 coverage below.(All times Eastern.)WWE Super ShowDown 2019 live updatesThe Undertaker def.

He knocks him out of the ring after a few minutes and McIntyre gets in a shot behind the ref’s back. 2:58 p.m.: Of course, Drew McIntyre is out there in Shane’s corner. Side note – it’s around 102 degrees in the ring and Shane-o-Mac sweats when he does promos on “Raw” and “SmackDown”. He’s going to be a puddle after this one.Finn Balor def. Andrade to retain the Intercontinental championship2:50 p.m. FINISH: Balor is up on the top rope and Andrade joins him up there.

Corbin corners the referee and yells at him. He grabs a chair and comes back in the ring with it but the ref tells him to get rid of it. He does but again yells at the ref before the ref yells back. All of this allows Rollins to recover and he rolls up Corbin from behind and gets the pin.  After the match, a ticked off Corbin hits the End of Days and here comes Brock Lesnar with a chair in hand. Lesnar gets in the ring and Heyman is about to but trips and he drops the briefcase. Lesnar is distracted and Rollins hits him with a low blow. He picks up the chair and begins bashing “The Beast” over and over with it. Rollins with a Stomp with Lesnar’s head hitting the case and Lesnar is down and out but he did not cash in the briefcase. Yep, another teased cash in that didn’t happen. 2:20 p.m.: Rollins is fighting back with chops and a big elbow. He hits the Slingblade that knocks Corbin out the ring and then hits a dive. Corbin rolls out on the other side and the champ hits another dive. Back in the ring, Rollins with a kick to the face but Corbin kicks out. 2:15 p.m.: As expected, Corbin is focused on Rollins’ taped ribs and suplexes him across the top rope and then a second time.

Yikes.1:25 p.m.: Seth Rollins is backstage with Byron Saxton and says he’s not 100% and his health “is what it is” but he’s ready for Baron Corbin as well as Brock Lesnar if needed.He’s ready for @BaronCorbinWWE.He’s ready for @BrockLesnar.He’s ready to leave #WWESSD STILL your #UniversalChampion! @WWERollins pic.twitter.com/WA7CGyIXsw— WWE (@WWE) June 7, 20191:20 p.m.: Both Alexa Bliss and Natalya traveled to Saudi Arabia with the hope that WWE could convince the government there to let them have a match. Apparently, that’s not going to happen with Dave Meltzer reporting that the Saudi government will not approve the women having a match on this show. The decision comes after it looked like it had been agreed upon but Saudi officials changed their mind. 1:10 p.m.: Paul Heyman explains that Brock Lesnar didn’t cash in on Seth Rollins on Monday after beating him down with a chair because of Rollins hitting him with a low blow at WrestleMania to help him win the Universal championship. Instead, the beatdown he dished out Monday was punishment for the low blow and today, he’ll punish him again by cashing in the briefcase and taking the title back.1:00 p.m.: Welcome to Sporting News’ live coverage of WWE Super ShowDown. Did you know this show is equal to or could be better than WrestleMania? That’s a real tag line for this show.

Chiefs schedule 2020: Dates & times for all 16 games, strength of schedule, final record prediction

first_imgThe Chiefs’ defensive improvements last year paid off, and now there’s more familiarity with Steve Spagnuolo’s scheme. There are a few leftover weaknesses in pass coverage, but there’s no indication of any real drop-off, let alone any kind of Super Bowl hangover.Including playoffs, Kansas City is riding a nine-game winning streak into the 2020 season. There’s no reason to think the Chiefs won’t stay mostly hot to win another division crown.Record prediction: 12-4 The Chiefs just won Super Bowl 54, but the big question is already here: Can Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid lead Kansas City to an encore in Super Bowl 55? For the Chiefs to put themselves in best position to repeat, it all depends how well they can navigate their 2020 schedule.The Chiefs went 12-4 last season, marking the third time in the past four seasons they have ended up with that record as consistent AFC West champions. Kansas City also rides a five-year playoff streak into 2020. NFL OFFSEASON 2020:Draft grades | Power rankings | Best free agents availableOnce again, the Chiefs will face all three returning first-place teams in the AFC in the Ravens, Texans and Patriots. This year, their interdivisional rotation also includes the rest of the AFC East and all of the NFC South on top of their six games against AFC West foes.Putting it all together, how does the Chiefs’ schedule look for this season?Here is a complete breakdown of the Chiefs’ 2020 schedule, including dates, start times and analysis for all 16 games.Kansas City Chiefs schedule 2020WeekDateOpponentKickoff timeTV1Sept. 10 (Thursday)Houston Texans8:20 p.m. ETNBC2Sept. 20at Los Angeles Chargers4:25 p.m. ETCBS3Sept. 28 (Monday)at Baltimore Ravens8:15 p.m. ETESPN4Oct. 4New England Patriots4:25 p.m. ETCBS5Oct. 11Las Vegas Raiders1 p.m. ETCBS6Oct. 15 (Thursday)at Buffalo Bills8:20 p.m. ETFox/NFLN7Oct. 25at Denver Broncos4:25 p.m. ETCBS8Nov. 1New York Jets1 p.m. ETCBS9Nov. 8Carolina Panthers1 p.m. ETFox10-Bye–11Nov. 22at Las Vegas Raiders8:20 p.m. ETNBC12Nov. 29at Tampa Bay Buccaneers4:25 p.m. ETCBS13Dec. 6Denver Broncos8:20 p.m. ETNBC14Dec. 13at Miami Dolphins1 p.m. ETCBS15Dec. 20at New Orleans Saints4:25 p.m. ETCBS16Dec. 27Atlanta Falcons1 p.m. ETFox17Jan. 3Los Angeles Chargers1 p.m. ETCBS(For Canadian viewers, each game can be streamed on DAZN.)The biggest surprise about last year’s Chiefs is that they went only 5-3 at Arrowhead Stadium and 7-1 on the road before winning two playoff games in Kansas City. That set them up to knock off the 49ers in Miami.This year, the Chiefs’ home schedule loses a little luster with Tom Brady no longer with the Patriots. But they still get Brady on the road with the Buccaneers. Mahomes also gets to duel Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson again, along with the addition of Drew Brees.The Chiefs have become a premier prime-time draw because of Mahomes. There’s no lack of marquee here for Kansas City, with the chances for many exciting shootouts along the way.MORE: Strength of schedule for all 32 teams in 2020Chiefs strength of schedule & predictionThe Chiefs are right in the middle with their strength of schedule based on opponents’ combined winning percentage from last year. Kansas City’s 2020 oppoenets went 128-128, exactly .500 and tied for 18th toughest with the Panthers.With some of those opponents weakened or rebuilding, the Chiefs have it considerably easier than it looks on paper. The AFC West might be the most improved division they face, but the AFC East and NFC South might give them more reprieves than expected.Toughest tests: The Chiefs should buckle up for the Bucs, but the Ravens and Bills on the road in hostile environments will be tough, too, given those two teams also might be their closest AFC title competition. The Saints also will be a difficult NFC team to beat in New Orleans.At home, the Patriots will still be a bit tricky, and the Texans will have confidence after grinding out a victory in Kansas City last season (and jumping out to that big lead in the playoffs before the Chiefs’ memorable comeback). The Broncos, Raiders and Chargers have remixed themselves to be better equipped to go after the Chiefs, too, wherever they play.Biggest breaks: The Falcons, Panthers and Jets provide three interdivision opponents the Chiefs should be able to handle at home. There’s only one such gimme on the road, at the Dolphins.The Chargers might not be as worrisome without Philip Rivers, while the Broncos have their share of defensive issues against Mahomes. The Chiefs are positioned to be much stronger at Arrowhead with a good chance to go 8-0 at home.Bottom line: The Chiefs have been among the AFC’s elite for a while, and now they’ve graduated to the top of the entire NFL. Mahomes didn’t lose anything of note around him, and fully healthy, he can have a season that resembles his 2018 MVP campaign more than his still-outstanding abbreviated 2019 version.last_img read more

Why is Kroos’s goal known as an Olympic goal?

first_imgSubsequently, they protested the action, understanding that their goalkeeper Mazali had been pushed with the ball in the air. Seeing that the collegiate did not respond to his pleas, they argued that the Italian footballer had no intention of scoring and that the goal had been produced by the wind. Onzari defended that he had it in mind from the first moment and, in addition, he boasted of it: “I could never make another goal the same. It was the best of my goals because of the impact it had and the amazement of the people“.Curiously, the Olympic goal was not included in the regulation until a few months before that appointment. It was in June 1924 when the International Board He picked it up for the first time, allowing, of course, that it could be scored from the corner from that moment. Onzari was the first to achieve it and the fact that it was a Tribute for the Olympic Gold of Uruguay is what caused that almost one hundred years later it is still present in the football slang. Kroos has already inscribed his name on the list of the elect. Toni Kroos was the protagonist in the first semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup between Real Madrid and Valencia. The German midfielder achieved something that is not usual in the world of football: corner kick mark. Thanks to their great beating, headlines from around the world collect a popularized expression, but with an origin by many unknown: Olympic goal. Why is the target noted by ‘8’ well known? When did you adopt this denomination?It was the year 1924 when Uruguay was crowned champion in the Paris Olympics. Surprising as it may seem, in that tournament he did not achieve a goal from the corner, but that would happen a month later. As a reason for celebration, the Uruguayan national team organized two friendly matches against Argentina, one in Montevideo and one in Buenos Aires. The first ended with a draw at one on the scoreboard and in the second, what would have caused today to be known both from the corner as an Olympic goal.The duel ‘back’ had to be suspended for a problem with the influx to the stadium, but shortly after it was rescheduled. Specifically, by October 2, with access control and about 30,000 fans in the stands. The electronic marked the 15th minute of the match when Cesáreo Onzari hit from the left side direct to goal. No one touched the ball and, in fact, the Uruguayan soccer players were perplexed.last_img read more

Pelé does not win for scares: Messi is already 17 goals from his record

first_imgIn fact, this Saturday he signed his sixth goal poker with FC Barcelona and second against Eibar, to which we must add the 41 ‘hat trick’ he has done in his career and the poker that he signed against Bayer Leverkusen (7-1) in the Champions League (2011/12). The teams to which Leo has scored four goals are: Arsenal (4-0) in the Champions League (2009/10), Valencia in the League (5-1) in the League (2011/12), Espanyol (4-0) in the League (2011/12), Osasuna (5-1) in the League (2012/13), Eibar (6-1) in the League (2017/18) and again Eibar (5-0) in the League (2019/20).Further, leads the scorers table in LaLiga, with 18 goals, five more than Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, which adds 13, after staying another day without seeing door. That means that the Argentine goes straight to his seventh ‘pichichi’, thus surpassing the legendary Athletic striker, Telmo Zarra, who reached six.Right now, Messi has at least fifteen games left to finish the season and twenty at best, if the team reaches the Champions League final in Istanbul. That means you will have to clench your teeth if you want to reach this record this season. What seems clear is that, sooner or later, in 2020, Messi will take over from the throne of Pelé. Edson Arantes do Nascimiento, better known as Pelé, will surely know since Leo Messi signed this day a goal poker against Eibar and that ‘therefore’ is only 17 of the record that the legendary Brazilian player still holds, with the 643 goals he scored in official matches with Santos.A record that has been in force for more than five decades, but that is about to fall like a ripe fruit because of an Argentine born in Rosario 32 years ago. And it is that Messi already adds a total of 626 goals in 715 matchs, with an average of 0.87 goals per game, distributed as follows: 436 in the League, 114 in the Champions League, 53 in the Copa del Rey, 14 in the Spanish Super Cup, 5 in the Club World Cup and 3 in the Spanish Super Cup.last_img read more
