Faceoff X, new facility, goalie competition consume talk at Saturday exhibition games

first_img Published on January 24, 2015 at 4:28 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse hosted Hofstra and Le Moyne at the Ensley Athletic Center for a series of scrimmages on Saturday morning through the mid-afternoon. The Orange defeated the Pride, 18-8, and took down the Dolphins by a score of 10-9 in game two.Here are several notes on the exhibitions that were open to the media for 90 minutes, but closed off to the general public:X-manWhat started as an open proclamation of competition by SU head coach John Desko at the faceoff X throughout the fall and preseason, has turned more into a one-man show. Ben Williams, a transfer from Holy Cross, has given a sense of clarity at the X. He took the majority of the faceoffs in the first half of the Hofstra scrimmage, Desko said, and hopes that he can stamp Williams as the man to replace Chris Daddio as specialist.“He’s done a terrific job,” Desko said. “He’s done a lot of work on his own. Coach Donahue has spent a bunch of time with him and the other faceoff guys.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDesko said finding a faceoff specialist is a priority for the Orange, and that there are six or seven other guys still in competition for reps. And after Williams got his chances in the first half, the second half was done by committee. It was Williams, though, that set himself apart from the rest.New digsSaturday marked the first organized athletic event in the new indoor athletic center. Last season, the team was not always able to practice on a regulation field, which was to SU’s detriment in the early going, Desko said.“It’s huge, and I think you saw that today,” Desko said, “I think our spacing was pretty good, we moved the ball well. Fewer turnovers than we had this time last year. Clearing the ball is better, riding’s better. Everything is better when you have a game facility.”Defender Brandon Mullins said after the game that it hurt last year to only have a 60-yard facility.“You just look around and you see this amazing facility,” Mullins said. “You’ve got the speakers blasting. The guys just can’t wait to practice here.”Net goalTwo weeks ago, Desko committed to Bobby Wardwell as his starter in goal for the beginning of the season. On Saturday, when asked again, there was no such assurance.Desko said he’d use Wardwell and Onondaga Community College transfer Warren Hill equally on Saturday. Wardwell started with the first-line defense against Hofstra. Hill started with the first-line defense against Le Moyne.“This is a big moment to show who’s going to be playing,” Wardwell said. “… As long as we’re winning games that’s the most important part.” Commentslast_img read more

MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from Rays’ convincing wild-card win over Athletics

first_img MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from an improbable Nationals wild-card win There’s really not much more to say, but we’ll still say some things.MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from Rays’ convincing wild-card win over A’sDon’t get it twisted, Charlie Morton is one of the most clutch pitchers in MLBYes, the A’s missed some opportunities in the wild-card game (more on that later) and no, a lot of people don’t know much about Charlie Morton, but over the last three years, Morton has turned into one of the most clutch pitchers in MLB and one of the best in general. Related News The Rays have earned the right to face off with the Astros in the American League Division Series after a 5-1 win over the A’s in the AL wild-card game.Charlie Morton tossed five innings while allowing one unearned run, Yandy Diaz hit two homers and the Rays combined to hit four in total. Morton didn’t have great control Wednesday, but he fought through five innings and only allowed one run which was unearned after a three-base error on a Marcus Semien ground ball. The 35-year-old righty did enough to earn the win and has now come away with victories in three winner-take-all games in the playoffs since 2017.He was the winning pitcher in Game 7 of the ALCS in 2017 as well as Game 7 of the World Series. Since signing with the Astros in 2017, Morton has revitalized his career, going 45-16 and making back-to-back All-Star games. His first year with Tampa Bay has been a great one and he is showing no signs of slowing down with age.Charlie Morton, 79mph Curveball and 96mph Fastball, Overlay. pic.twitter.com/AZOEoId6BV— Rob Friedman (@PitchingNinja) October 3, 2019Missed opportunitiesThe A’s were one of the best-hitting MLB teams all year long. They were eighth in runs scored, 11th in on-base percentage, 10th in slugging and 10th in OPS. They finished fifth in home runs and also showed the ability to string hits together and beat teams if they couldn’t hit the ball out of the park.But Oakland became plagued by a problem late in the season and that problem reared its ugly head again in the wild-card game. While the A’s were OK with runners in scoring postion on the season (.252 batting average), they were abysmal down the stretch finishing the year on a 2-for-46 slump.They struggled again Wednesday, leaving the bases loaded in the first inning and runners on first and third in the fourth. What’s worse though is they had at least a runner on base in every single inning of the game except the ninth and yet they could not score an earned run.The A’s couldn’t figure out how to plate a runner at the end of the year and it cost them.A historic skidThis isn’t funny anymore. MLB playoffs 2019: One reason Athletics, Rays could win World Series The A’s cannot win a winner-take-all game to save their lives. With their loss to the Rays on Wednesday, Oakland has lost nine straight winner-take-all games. What makes it seem even worse though is when you hear the last time the A’s won one.That was in 1973. And again, to make matters worse, six of those nine games have been at home.Again, this isn’t funny anymore.
