He’d started outside the front row and led all 36 laps.Hogge, winner of the Friday feature at Watsonville, Shane DeVolder and 21st starting Ryan McDan­iel completed the top five.Three cautions came out early but a long green flag run preceded the checkers.“Friday I ran the bottom and led most of the way before Hogge passed me on the top,” DeCarlo said. “Saturday we ran the high side, then ran the last eight laps wherever to pass lapped cars.”In addition to the lion’s share of the Saturday purse, DeCarlo took home $700 for his second place showing on Friday, $500 for having the top point total for the two days and the $100 fan favorite award.“This was my highest paying weekend ever and it came against very good competition,” noted DeCarlo. “Now I’ve got money for the Duel In The Desert.”Already on the Fast Shafts ballot, Hogge pocketed $1,000 for the opening night win at Wat­sonville, his Pettit career seventh since 2013.Kevin Johnson, Guy Ahlwardt and K.C.

Tim Duncan’s enduring consistency is hallmark of one of NBA’s great all-time forwards

first_img“Amazing. He’s a Hall of Famer, man,” Jordan said. “And he is somebody that I watched when I was growing up. You can’t take anything away from him, but you can definitely try to learn some things.“I feel like with him, he never gets rattled. The same with their team. He’s so smart and he can beat you in different ways. Outside, inside. But the biggest thing with him, I think, is his mental toughness.”To Clippers coach Doc Rivers, Duncan is the ultimate player in many areas.“I think we have all have finally given him credit that he’s the best power forward to ever play the game,” Rivers said. “Or, in my opinion.”It goes so much deeper than that, though. In a nutshell, Rivers believes Duncan is a dream, for his coach, and his teammates.“I wish we would like notice him, how he carries himself, how he’s the ultimate team player,” Rivers said. “He allows Pop to coach him and coach him hard every night. He’s over himself, he’s selfless. I mean, he has so many great attributes for a winner and I think we get lost in just his play. He’ll never ask for it and that’s just the way he is, but he does so many neat things that you see.”Often times when a coach is discussing an opposing player, there is some diplomacy involved. There was no denying Rivers’ sincerity.“He touches a lot,” said Rivers, who explained. “And we talk about touching a lot. Like, you’ll see it all the time. He pats guys on the head and grab a guy and, you know, he’s not a vocal guy, but he does it in that way. I just think it’s really neat.”Here is a classic example of what Rivers is talking about. Duncan had a poor fourth quarter in Game 2 of San Antonio’s 111-107 victory over the Clippers on Wednesday at Staples Center. He had four rebounds in the quarter, but he shot 1 of 5, missed easy shots and committed a turnover.What does he do? He apologizes to his team in the huddle before the overtime period.“Oh, yeah, yeah,” Duncan said, when asked about his gesture. “I was awful. I missed two or three lay-ups, I made two or three defensive mistakes, got out of position and gave up dunks to DeAndre (Jordan). I was awful in that fourth quarter.”Duncan, out of the U.S. Virgin Islands, was funny after that game when a reporter reminded him that Saturday was going to be his 39th birthday.“Is it really? That sucks,” he said, drawing laughter from reporters.He’s still taking care of business, though. He still has that sweet turn-around jumper that gently kisses off the glass before settling into the net. He scored 22 points on 8 of 13 shooting and pulled down 14 rebounds in the Spurs’ 114-105 Game 4 loss to the Clippers at AT&T Center in San Antonio on Sunday.When asked after Game 2 about the method for his contined success after all this time, his response was not surprising.“I’m just trying to keep pace,” he said. “I don’t have a secret. I’m in a great system, I’m on a great team and I’m not asked to do what I used to do. I’m asked to play a role, and I’m happy to play a role.“I’m just trying to be as consistent as I can for my teammates.”Duncan by the numbers5: NBA Championships14th: In all-time scoring39: Age as of last Saturday Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs doesn’t like to talk about his legacy just yet.“No, I’m living in the moment,” said Duncan, who Tuesday night at Staples Center will lead his team into Game 5 of its Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Clippers. The series is tied 2-2. “I’m enjoying and appreciating how I’m playing now and my ability to play now. I have plenty of time after I’m done to sit back, to go back and look at that.”Others have no problem discussing what the all-time great power forward has meant not only to the Spurs, but the NBA as a whole.“He’s one of those iconic figures that all organizations hope that they can be part of their program for a long time,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “His steadiness, his consistency and the class with which he operates really makes everybody look good and that includes the NBA. They know that. “He affects a lot of lives in our community, in our team, he pays my bills for a long time and so he’s beyond special.”Duncan has averaged 19.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.2 blocks over the course of his illustrious 18-year career. He turned 39 Saturday, yet still averaged 13.9 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.9 blocks during this regular season.Duncan has 25,974 career points, 14th on the all-time list.Most important of all, he has been a part off all five Spurs NBA titles – the first one coming in his second season in 1999, the most recent in 2014. Money player? Including 2015, Duncan has averaged 21.2 points, 11.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.3 blocks in 238 postseason games.Clippers center DeAndre Jordan was reared in Houston, Texas, so he knows all about Duncan.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

As T-shirt flap blows over, Dodgers’ Dave Roberts thinks keeping it loose is right way to go

first_imgThose instances all occurred during Don Mattingly’s time as Dodgers manager. The clubhouse remains loose under Roberts – and he takes that as both a compliment and a necessity of his job.“Baseball – I think the word we hear the most is ‘grind,’” Roberts said. “When you’re playing 7-1/2 months of baseball, it’s a grind. So to be so non-emotional, stoic, quote-unquote professional every single day is unrealistic in this day and age, in my opinion. And I don’t think it’s necessary. You have to have fun. This game is a game. It’s fun. So to hold players to a certain standard that they have to act a certain way to be professional, for me, is absurd.“To say I have a loose clubhouse, yes. But I have players that watch the game, they talk about the game, they talk about the opposition, they run balls out, they go first to third, they go on balls in the dirt. When they get hit by a pitch, they take their base. We don’t throw at hitters intentionally to hurt people. We celebrate small victories within our team. And I think that’s a good thing.”UP NEXTBrewers RHP Freddy Peralta (4-2, 3.74 ERA) at Dodgers RHP Kenta Maeda (7-5, 3.27 ERA), Monday, 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), ESPN (out of market only) “To take a shot at him and our guys, I just thought it was unfair.”The Braves’ front office – most of whom are in Cooperstown this weekend for Chipper Jones’ Hall of Fame induction – sent an apology through intermediaries to Roberts for Simpson’s comments. Roberts, however, said he did not speak with Simpson directly. Utley would not comment about his meeting with the broadcaster.”I don’t know how Major League Baseball allows such attire when the gates are open and fans are watching.”The Dodgers wore t-shirts and shorts to batting practice and Braves’ TV analyst Joe Simpson wasn’t happy about it: https://t.co/SkTrpe4q7t pic.twitter.com/VjAg6DNifZ— Sporting News (@sportingnews) July 29, 2018 Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ ATLANTA – As the Dodgers celebrated another “Shirtless Sunday” in the weight room, Atlanta Braves broadcaster Joe Simpson was in the visitors’ clubhouse at SunTrust Park Sunday morning to talk with Chase Utley about the comments Simpson made during Saturday’s broadcast, calling Utley and the Dodgers “unprofessional” and “an embarrassment” for taking pregame batting practice in T-shirts.The absurdity of that juxtaposition was only slightly higher than this latest clash between the self-appointed keepers of old-school baseball thought and the modern age of social media and individuality itself.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts called Simpson’s comments “a cheap shot” and said he was particularly upset that Utley was singled out while wearing a “K Cancer” T-shirt that represents the Jason Motte Foundation, an organization that supports the fight against cancer.“I did hear those comments and I was very taken aback,” Roberts said before Sunday’s game. “You’re talking about Chase Utley who is a consummate professional not only on the field but off the field, wearing a ‘Strikeout Cancer’ shirt, a cause that is dear to his heart. … Batting practice is to get your work in which Chase does an amazing job of, as do all our players. To see him take ground balls or go through his routine in the cage, that should be the takeaway. When you talk about the fans, that would be my message – to watch him and how he works and prepares for a major-league baseball game. Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day center_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense “It’s past,” Roberts said. “I think, for us, it’s water under the bridge. If he talked to Chase and Chase is good with it, that’s good by me.”The latest flap involves a Dodgers team that once had a bubble machine in the dugout to celebrate home runs and a disco ball (complete with smoke machine) in the clubhouse to celebrate victories. They memorably partied in the pool at Chase Field after clinching a division title and were criticized for “Mickey Mouse stuff” by Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright during a playoff series.That criticism prompted some Dodgers players to flash a mouse ears signal to the dugout after base hits. The Dodgers did not take batting practice on the field before the day game Sunday – sparing everyone from a similar acting out in this case. Some of the Dodgers took to social media Saturday night with ideas for future batting-practice attire, mocking the criticism of Simpson, who came up in the Dodgers’ system and played for them in the mid-1970s.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Walker Buehler returns to form in Dodgers’ power-boosted win over Marlins

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies “It’s huge,” outfielder Joc Pederson said. “He really had his stuff today. Quality pitches, quick outs. Decently hot day and he kept us off our feet and we were able to get him some runs.”Indeed, they did.When Marlins rookie Jordan Yamamoto took the mound for the start, the right hander had not yet surrendered a home run in the first 33 innings of his career. The Dodgers didn’t let this streak stand much longer.First baseman Max Muncy hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Pederson followed with a two-run shot of his own in the third to help the Dodgers take a 4-0 lead.“The two two-run homers obviously stressed [Yamamoto] and got the pitch count up and we were able to get to the bullpen,” Roberts said. “It was good to see for all of us.”Related Articles PreviousMiami Marlins starting pitcher Jordan Yamamoto throws to the plate during the first inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sunday, July 21, 2019, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — His past few starts haven’t been up to Walker Buehler’s standards. The Dodgers right hander had allowed 16 runs (12 earned) in three appearances while trying to find the precision that can make him so effective.Well, Buehler found it again on Sunday.The second-year pitcher struck out 11 and allowed five hits and no walks in seven innings of shutout work while the Dodgers (67-35) hit three home runs to complete a three-game sweep of the Marlins (36-61) with a 9-0 win Sunday.“I figured some stuff out and I liked the way it was coming out of my hand today,” Buehler said softly following the appearance. “I think when you spin the fastball alright, if you can get some angle on it, it’s going to help you out. That’s what I’ve been searching for and I kind of found it today.” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire The righty was crisp and precise from the outset. He struck out six batters in the first two innings, though he allowed a single in each of those frames. Buehler tightened up even more, retiring 13 batters in a row before Garrett Cooper singled in the sixth.Buehler got himself into a bit of trouble in the seventh with two on and two outs, but struck out Yadiel Rivera for his 11th and final punch out of the game. The outing marked the third time this season Buehler has reached double-digit strikeouts.He threw 71 of his 94 pitches for strikes.“Just getting ahead of guys all day, the called strike, the swing and miss,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts gushed. “He could essentially do whatever he wanted to do today.”And for the first time in over a week, a Dodger pitcher had the full support of his defense. After committing 16 errors in the previous eight games and allowing 10 unearned runs in the last five contests, the Dodgers didn’t have a miscue on the diamond on Sunday.Some of the credit for this goes back to Buehler (9-1) and his quick pace on the mound. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season center_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start The performance continued what has been an offensive outpouring for the Dodgers since the All-Star break.A.J. Pollock’s three-run blast in the seventh inning made it 27 home runs for the Dodgers in the 10 games since the Midsummer Classic, the most in the majors. Muncy and Cody Bellinger, who had Sunday’s game off as a rest day, each have four homers in that stretch.The Dodgers have also scored 77 runs in the 10 games since the break, the most in the majors.But they didn’t need too impressive of a game with their bats given the way that Buehler pitched on Sunday.

Could the Fins be the first?If Miami goes to Super Bowl LIV, February 2, 2020 it would be the only time the home team played in the championship game.This will be the 11th time Miami has hosted a Super Bowl which will break a tie with New Orleans (10) for the most Super Bowls played in a city.Who would the Dolphins face if they made the Super Bowl. Vegas oddsmakers say the Kansas City Chiefs were an overtime coin flip away from potentially knocking off the New England Patriots to advance to the Super Bowl last season.The Chiefs’ Super Bowl 54 odds of 6-1 could drastically improve if quarterback Patrick Mahomes gets off to a flying start. The Dolphins have not won a Super Bowl since they moved play from the Orange Bowl to the stadium formerly known as Joe Robbie Stadium.The Dolphins won the 1984 AFC Championship, and appeared in Super Bowl XIX, where they lost to the San Francisco 49ers, 38–16.To date this is the last season the Dolphins appeared in the Super Bowl.Also, for you college football fans, the 150th college football season is upon us.

Everyone loves Riquelme

first_imgRodrigo Riquelme, Roro, is one of the jewels in the crown of the red and white quarry. His name is noted on many club agendas across Europe. Ajax and PSV in the Netherlands. Betis, Valencia and Real Madrid in LaLiga. With just 20 years old his contract with Atlético ends this summer and on the table he has a renewal offer with the Atletico club that has not yet signed. It worries in the offices of the Wanda Metropolitano. For all those siren songs that keep growing around her. The last to join has been Celtic, interested in Riquelme after seeing him live against the Rangers youth team in the Youth League. 2019-20 is his First season with the Athletic B but has been training all the season at the orders of Simeone, with the first team, with whom you have already debuted. It was on the third day of the League this season, he played 12 minutes and touched the goal. In summer was one of the youth squads who more shone in the preseason. With an assist to Llorente, with his impudence against Juventus in the game that closed the summer. Because that, personality, is what defines you. Its fundamental renewal“He always says it, that by playing like this he has come this far and why he will change“confessed his father, José Manuel Riquelme, in Onda Madrid, during the summer. His life is read in rojiblanco, a quarry that he reached when he was ten years old and where he has been climbing up to filter his name into the first team. Hold you back is one of the priorities set in red and bold in the rojiblanco club at this time, it is not going to be that one of the siren songs snatches it. Carries five goals in 21 matches with the B (in addition to 2 in 7 with the youth in the Youth League). ‘Girlfriends’ do not stop dating, every week.last_img read more
