Angels fill-in pitchers have rough day in loss to Baltimore Orioles

first_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error After Manager Mike Scioscia had used his 28th pitcher of the year — the most in Angels history through 85 games — he said they still expect to win, no matter how deep they go on the depth chart.“They’re here because we have the confidence they can make pitches and get outs,” Scioscia said. “For stretches, Deck did this afternoon. We just couldn’t suppress that rally and they put up a six-spot. And (Kevin) Gausman did the rest. He pitched a good game for them.”After winning the first two games against the lowly Orioles (24-59), owners of baseball’s worst record, the Angels (43-42) had hoped to finish off a sweep to send them into their off day preceding a key series in Seattle.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

He’d been with three just in the past month, having been let go by the Toronto Blue Jays, picked up by the Texas Rangers and then quickly traded to the Angels.

(Catcher José) Briceño did a fantastic job. I just left a couple pitches up and I paid for it.”Next up was Hansel Robles, who had been DFA’d by the New York Mets before the Angels grabbed him a couple weeks ago. He immediately gave up an RBI double. An out later, he gave up a two-run single to Tim Beckham, putting the Angels down 6-1.Eduardo Paredes, who is up for his eighth stint in the majors this season, then gave up homers to Trumbo and Trey Mancini in the fifth.Taylor Cole worked the final three inning for the Angels. He’d been signed as a minor league free agent after the start of spring training, and made his debut with the Angels, as player No. 49 and pitcher No. 28.Cole worked three scoreless innings, facing the minimum nine hitters, so there was that sliver of encouragement to end another disappointing day. The Angels gave McGuire the start because John Lamb — the Angels’ 10th starter — was hurt. McGuire also had a reasonably effective four-inning stint in relief of Lamb on Tuesday in Boston.They hoped he could simply get through four or five innings and keep them in the game long enough for their hitters to do some damage against a Baltimore staff that has also struggled.After the Angels got a run in the first on an Albert Pujols RBI single against Gausman, they didn’t do much else.McGuire shut out the Orioles through three, but the magic ran out quickly in the fourth. Adam Jones hit a popup that Ian Kinsler lost in the sun. Manny Machado then belted a two-run homer to put the Orioles ahead. Mark Trumbo followed with a homer. Chris Davis doubled off the right-field fence. One out later, McGuire walked Chance Sisco, and his day was over.Related Articleslast_img read more

Carnival hits town as Mayweather and McGregor ready to fight

first_imgUPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspension The two got into an unplanned verbal confrontation as they moved between the outdoor stage and the arena, though it was brief. Bodyguards kept them apart and both fighters are smart enough not to do anything to jeopardize their immense paydays from what could be the richest fight ever.“It’s work,” Mayweather said when asked if he was having fun. “My job is to be a fighter.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutMcGregor, meanwhile, reiterated his vow to knock Mayweather out within two rounds, and claimed the boxer was getting desperate in making comments about his weight and stamina.“Let him keep praying about weight and fatigue. All he’s doing is praying,” McGregor said. “But he’s praying to the new god of boxing.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “I believe I’ll knock him out early, one or two rounds,” McGregor said.Both fighters seemed relaxed and confident, just days away from a fight that seemed improbable at times and impossible at other times. Yet they will meet under boxing rules in a scheduled 12-round fight that matches a UFC champion who has never boxed professionally against the master defensive fighter of his time.McGregor said it was just another progression in his fighting career, and chided Mayweather for saying he hopes the referee does his job and doesn’t allow McGregor to try any mixed martial arts moves against him.“I may make him beg me to follow the rules,” McGregor said.Mayweather said he expected McGregor to come out wildly and use roughhouse tactics, something Marcos Maidana did effectively when he fought Mayweather in 2014. But he said the Irish fighter can’t keep that up for 12 rounds and doesn’t understand what it is to get hit by a real boxing champion.“When he gets hit he’ll find out it’s totally different,” Mayweather said.While looking as fit as ever and insisting he is taking the fight seriously, Mayweather said he will be doing meet-and-greet experiences every night living up to the fight at his new strip club just off the Las Vegas Strip.“I’ll be at the Girl Collection every day this week,” he said. “Every day.” SEA Games: PH’s Alisson Perticheto tops ice skating short program LIST: Class, gov’t work suspensions during 30th SEA Games SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief The crowd for one of the final promotional events was small and not terribly vocal, especially after waiting an hour or two in 100-degree heat to see the fighters.

MS Dhoni continues to shatter ODI records

first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni’s record-shattering run continues as he became the second highest run-scorer by a wicketkeeper in One-Day Internationals. Not only that, he is now fifth on the list of the most number of sixes hit by a player in ODIs.Dhoni achieved both the feats during his unbeaten knock of 78 off 79 balls which helped India reach 251/4 from their 50 overs in the third ODI against West Indies at the Sir Vivian Richards stadium in Antigua. (SCORECARD)Dhoni now has 9442 runs from 294 matches at 51.31 with 10 hundreds, he overtook Adam Gilchrist who amassed 9410 runs from 282 matches at 35.64 with 16 centuries.
