Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Milwaukee was leading 1-0 in the fourth inning when Logan (“Logie Bear”) Forsythe tied the game with a home run against Chase Anderson. With two outs in the fifth inning, Justin (“Redturn2”) Turner drew a walk, stole second base, and scored on a single by Yasmani Grandal. Yasiel (“Wild Horse”) Puig homered in the sixth inning to complete the scoring.Domingo Santana’s home run in the second inning was the Brewers’ only hit of the night against Kenta (“Maeken”) Maeda and three relievers. With 35 games left in the season, the Dodgers (91-36) have already matched their win total from 2016.The Dodgers left nine men on base and went 2 for 10 with runners in scoring position Friday, but three runs were enough to make a winner of Maeda. The right-hander tossed six innings and faced only three batters above the minimum, allowing two walks and the home run by Santana. “There are times when he starts to be a little too fine, but when he’s on the attack, he’s special,” Manager Dave Roberts said of Maeda. “The two walks he fell behind, but when he goes after guys his stuff and command is so good, when he trusts that, he can get major league hitters out consistently.”Maeda is 5-1 with a 2.52 earned-run average since the All-Star break, turning his short-lived June bullpen stints into a distant memory. The right-hander is 12-5 with a 3.76 ERA this season.“I think I was falling behind a lot in the first half of the season,” Maeda said through his interpreter. “I try to get easy outs and make sure I throw strikes.”Left-hander Tony Cingrani and right-hander Josh Ravin each pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Maeda. Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth inning before the announced crowd of 52,455 – his 35th save coming on the heels of back-to-back days off.The home runs by Forsythe (his fourth this season) and Puig (his 23rd, extending a career high) were the substance of highlights. Turner’s run was not, but it was emblematic of the Dodgers’ multi-faceted offense.Turner benefited from the only two walks issued by Anderson (7-3) – one in the third inning, one in the fifth.“He was going pretty slow – 1.5 (seconds), 1.6 to the plate,” Turner said of Anderson. “I didn’t try to run there (in the third inning). It was early in the game. So when I got back over there in the fifth inning, with two outs I was going to roll the dice that he was going to go slow again, and try to get in scoring position for Yas. I got a pretty good jump. He went over a 1.5 again and threw a first-pitch curveball, which helped, and the next thing you know Yas shoots one over the middle and we get a run out of it.”Grandal’s RBI single came on an 0-and-2 curveball that caught most of the plate – the same pitch Anderson struck him out on in the third inning.Before hitting his home run, Puig made a dazzling catch on the warning track in right-center field, accelerating to full speed to deny a potential extra-base hit by Eric Thames a step in front of the wall.Quietly, the Dodgers’ bullpen might have turned in the game’s biggest performance. With five potential starters on the disabled list – Clayton Kershaw, Alex Wood, Yu Darvish, Brandon McCarthy and Julio Urías – Ross Stripling is making an emergency spot start Saturday and will be limited to approximately four innings or 50 pitches. The more efficiently the bullpen could pitch Friday, the better.Cingrani, Ravin and Jansen faced the minimum nine batters, throwing a total of 33 pitches. The game ended on a reversal of a safe/out call at first base. Even the video review was efficient – 24 seconds – and it went the Dodgers’ way as Ryan Braun was called out.“We expect to win every day,” Jansen said, “even though realistically you’re not going to win every day.” LOS ANGELES >> If there was any question that the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the name on the back, just ask Logie Bear. Or Redturn2. Or Wild Horse.A marketing gimmick known as “Players Weekend” allowed players, coaches and managers to pick a PG-rated, non-trademarked moniker for the back of a remixed technicolor jersey for three days beginning Friday. The jerseys still said “Dodgers” on the front, which meant they won, beating the Milwaukee Brewers, 3-1.
The L.V. Rogers Bombers opened the 2013-14 High School Boy’s Basketball season with a second-place finish at the J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks Invitational Tournament Saturday in Trail.Kalamalka Lakers of Vernon outlasted the Bombers 80-55 in the tourney final.”Kal exposed our man to man defense which needs work,” said Bomber rookie head coach Jeremy Phelan.”Everyone was picking up unnecessary foul calls and had to be sat.””The game was close up to this point where the bench players had to come into the rotation,” Phelan added.Kalamalka held leads of18-10 after first quarter; 35-21 at half and 59-37 after three quarters.”Tobin stepped up his game from the previous day and was more effective against Kal,” Phelan explained. “He scored 14 points but was hampered with foul trouble throughout the game and was player of the game for us.”Bjorn Morris also had 14 points for the Bombers while Ethan Perkins finished with eight points along with a number of steals leading to fast break points.Josh Matosevic again showed he belongs on the senior squad, playing big minutes and scoring seven points.LVR opened the four-team tournament by stopping host Crowe Hawks 53-35.Morris, named player of the game, led the Bombers with 14 points — 12 in the second half.LVR held period leads of 8-7 after one quarter, 23-14 at half and 38-23 after three quarters.Avery Kushner led the Bombers with his strong play.LVR then bounced School District rival Mount Sentinel Wildcats 58-31.Perkins, Morris and Matosevic were tops scorers for LVR witih eight, 15 and 10 points, respectively.”Everyone got on the scoresheet again, but Mount Sentinel zoned us an we had trouble running our offense.”
TRAINER QUOTES PETER EURTON, KOBE’S BACK, WINNER: Did you see how he came out of the gate? He broke too fresh, and that was good. He’s just good right now. He’s the best he’s been in so long. Gary hustled him a little bit and then he kind of let him fall back.”“He’ll probably run next at Churchill Downs on Derby Day (May 7 in the Churchill Downs Stakes at seven furlongs).” TYLER BAZE, COASTLINE, SECOND: “I had a beautiful trip. I didn’t really know how much he would eat the dirt, but I watched the replays from his dirt races and it looked like he had handled dirt in the face just fine. I really kind of let him run his race. I wanted to be patient with him going from six and a half down the hill to seven eighths, I think the distance is never a question with him, but I wanted to make sure I timed it right – especially when I had to thread the needle through a haystack. He ran really good.” JOCKEY QUOTES FLAVIEN PRAT, CALCULATOR, THIRD: “I had a good race, he [Calculator] had his shot and he was a little bit aggressive on the back side. That’s my only regret but overall, we had a good trip. He’s a good horse and he’s going to improve anyway so I’m happy with that race.” GARY STEVENS, KOBE’S BACK, WINNER: “It was the best he’s ever broken. I’ve been aboard him in a couple of workouts in the mornings, before his last race and again last week and there have been a few times that he’s wanted to go after horses in front of him and I’ve let him. What I found out is that he’s not only a great stretch runner but he’s a good turn runner. And that wasn’t the case last year. With a little time off and the addition of blinkers he seems a lot more focused.“He’s running on the turn so he’s gaining ground and doesn’t have to work so hard in the stretch. It gives me a lot of confidence. I knew at the half-mile pole that they were all in deep water and that’s a pretty good feeling.”“Pete’s got him figured out.” NOTES: The winning owners Lee and Susan Searing of Rancho Cucamonga who race as C R K Stable.
