NOTRE TAMED: Syracuse offense breaks out late, defense clamps down on Fighting Irish to send Orange to Big East tournament finals

The attack would be checked away, the pass would sail out of bounds and precious chances sailed wide or nestled into a goalie’s stick.The Syracuse and Notre Dame offenses were trapped on either side of the field, bound by their own half-field sets and opposing air-tight defenses – until Steve Ianzito blew past UND’s Conor Doyle to scoop up another stray Irish pass. Ianzito darted 40 yards, dished to Derek Maltz at the point, Maltz rifled to Donahue. Donahue buried his shot to put SU up one.The whole play took eight seconds. It took Notre Dame another 28 minutes and 23 seconds to score.Ianzito’s breakaway keyed a 3-0 SU run to end the first half. It shattered No. 5 UND (10-4) and its defense’s hold on the game. No. 3 Syracuse’s (12-3) stayed as tight as ever and the Orange offense ticked on as SU ran out to a 9-3 win in the Big East semifinals on Thursday in front of 2,517 fans at Villanova Stadium. That run busted open what was once a contained game. Still, the Orange defense kept the Irish under wraps and Notre Dame fell deeper and deeper into a 35-plus-minute scoring drought.“We just got our butts kicked by the same team in the course of five days twice,” Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFifty-five seconds had passed since Donahue’s fast-break finish when Hakeem Lecky shook his man with a faint half-step to his left. Lecky stepped up right and just ripped a shot into the upper-right corner from 12 yards out.With the quick, but often erratic, Lecky firing, it looked as though nothing would stop SU. Then, head coach John Desko called a timeout. Just as the game was breaking open into SU’s style and score, Desko paused it with 1:56 left in the half.And 31 seconds later, JoJo Marasco ran past Jack Near and fed Kevin Rice on the crease – 5-2 Orange.“With Dom seeing the ball and making big saves we knew that all we had to do on offense was put a couple in and we were going to win this game,” Marasco said.SU scored four more. The Orange offense ticked on while Notre Dame spiraled into defeat as Syracuse’s defense clamped down even more tightly.When Quinn Cully was whistled for a hold on Maltz with 13:09 left in the third, the scoreless streak was just 12 minutes old.Notre Dame finally settled into its first composed possession of the second half six minutes into the third quarter. Steve Murphy crept down the left hashes and saw Sean Rogers breaking open off the goal line for a seemingly certain goal. But a harsh body check clattered Murphy just as he flipped the ball toward Rogers. It sailed over Rogers and out of bounds.On Tuesday, SU goalkeeper Dominic Lamolinara and his defense complained of Corrigan not giving them enough credit after the Orange held the Irish to just four goals in the Konica Minolta Classic on Saturday. After Thursday’s game a reporter asked Lamolinara if SU shut UND down, or the Irish were merely sloppy.Lamolinara pursed his lips and shook his head. “No,” he said. “I feel like it’s what we were doing as a defense … They gave up shots that I wanted to have on me.”The Fighting Irish continued to create decent chances. But the game was won. UND continued to spoil its own opportunities on the rare occasions its attackers escaped SU defenders.Rogers showed it as he batted away what would’ve been an easy fast-break opportunity with 12 minutes remaining.“I wouldn’t say it was getting to us, but there is a realization when you’re down and they possess the ball for such long periods that we need a goal, but unfortunately we forced too many things,” Rogers said.And if there was any doubt who would play in Saturday’s tournament final, Marasco vanquished it. With his back turned to the goal, he cradled against his defender, 12 yards from the net on the left wing. Marasco turned to retreat to the point.Instead, with his back turned to the entire game, he flipped a blind over-the-shoulder pass to on-rushing Luke Cometti. Cometti buried his goal, SU’s last. Marasco threw his hands above his head.Said UND goaltender John Kemp: “I just think that they were canning shots. I think they got some good opportunities throughout the game and it’s kind of just they put it in when they needed to … They pretty much just took care of business.” Commentslast_img read more

Rookie Fleming, Rays hold Marlins to 3 hits, win 4-0

first_img COMMENT Written By First Published: 30th August, 2020 07:51 IST LIVE TV Rookie Josh Fleming and four relievers combined on a three-hitter, and Tampa Bay pitchers extended their streak of success at Marlins Park to 36 consecutive scoreless innings in the Rays’ 4-0 victory over Miami on Saturday.Tampa Bay shut out the Marlins for the second night in a row, and also blanked them in both meetings in Miami last year.Fleming (2-0) won for the second time in as many career starts. He allowed three baserunners and struck out six to help the Rays earn their fourth victory in a row.“He was outstanding for us,” manager Kevin Cash said. “So efficient. He doesn’t pitch like a guy who has two starts under his belt at the big league level.”Joey Wendle doubled twice and drove in two runs for the AL East leaders, who scored all of their runs with two out.Tampa Bay’s latest pitching gem came shortly after left-hander Ryan Yarbrough went on the injured list with groin tightness. Eleven Rays pitchers have been sidelined by injuries since the start of summer camp.“These wins are starting to feel like losses when you have guys going down,” Wendle said. “It’s tough to see. But it speaks to the depth of the organization and the guys we’ve been able to call up.”Despite the depleted staff, the Rays (23-11) climbed a season-high 12 games above .500, and beat Miami for the seventh consecutive time dating to last year. The Rays have won 11 of their past 13 overall, and have won 11 of their past 12 road games after losing their first five in 2020.Pablo Lopez (3-2) allowed two runs in seven innings for the Marlins (14-14). Tampa Bay scored the game’s first run in the sixth on Yandy Diaz’s RBI single, a four-hopper that traveled 75 feet, and Kevin Kiermaier’s run-scoring single in the seventh made it 2-0.“I felt like it was the best Pablo has thrown,” Miami manager Don Mattingly said. “The Diaz chopper — just unfortunate.”Wendle hit a two-run double in the eighth. All six Rays runs in the series have scored with two out.“When our pitchers are throwing up 18 zeros in a row, that makes it a little bit easier,” Wendle said.The Marlins struck out 11 times. In the first two games of the series they’ve fanned 18 times while walking twice and totaling eight hits.“We haven’t really had a lot of action,” Mattingly said. “Is this a short little cycle? Have they pitched good, do we give them credit? Whatever it is, we’ve got to try to get better, and quickly.”ROSTER MOVESMarlins: RHP Robert Dugger, LHP Alex Vesia and C Chad Wallach were reinstated from the injured list. They were sidelined during the team’s coronavirus outbreak last month. RHP Humberto Mejía was optioned to the team’s alternate training site, and RHP Brett Eibner, C Brian Navaretto and LHP Josh D. Smith were designated for assignment. Miami has made 111 roster moves this season.TRAINER’S ROOMMarlins: 1B Jesus Aguilar (back) was out of the starting lineup for the second night in a row.UP NEXTRays: LHP Blake Snell (2-0, 3.04 ERA) starts on Sunday. He had season highs in innings (5 2/3), strikeouts (nine) and pitches (101) in his most recent start Monday against Toronto.Marlins: RHP Sandy Alcantara (1-0, 1.35), sidelined by the team’s coronavirus outbreak, is expected to be activated to start Sunday. His only previous outing this year came on opening day, when he went 6 2/3 innings to beat the Philadelphia Phillies.“I was waiting too long to be back with my teammates,” Alcantara said.Image credits: AP Last Updated: 30th August, 2020 07:51 IST Rookie Fleming, Rays Hold Marlins To 3 Hits, Win 4-0 Rookie Josh Fleming and four relievers combined on a three-hitter, and Tampa Bay pitchers extended their streak of success at Marlins Park to 36 consecutive scoreless innings in the Rays’ 4-0 victory over Miami on Saturdaycenter_img Associated Press Television News SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE FOLLOW USlast_img read more
