Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error MILWAUKEE >> The last two times, Clayton Kershaw did not get enough run support to win a game he pitched well.Monday, Kershaw exited with a lead in the eighth inning, but the Dodgers lost on a disputed call at first base.What does Kershaw have to do to earn his 100th career win?“I don’t want to analyze it so much right now,” the pitcher said of the Dodgers’ 4-3 loss to the Brewers. “Obviously, it was really close,” Mattingly said. “We don’t have the same HD (video review technology) they have in New York to see what touches before what.”It was an uneasy way to lose, against a team that had been relatively easy to beat in 2015. The Brewers had a 7-18 record when manager Ron Roenicke was fired Sunday. Former Dodgers infielder Craig Counsell won his managerial debut.His No. 8 hitter, Hector Gomez (2 for 3, triple, home run), and the three men who batted behind him (3 for 3, double, triple) did most of the Brewers’ damage.Joc Pederson began the game with a home run against right-hander Kyle Lohse, his fourth in five games since being installed as the Dodgers’ leadoff hitter. For five innings, that appeared to be enough run support for Kershaw.The Dodgers tacked on two more runs in the fourth inning to take a 3-0 lead.Lohse had the only hit for five innings against Kershaw, a single. Only one other Brewer got a ball to the outfield before the sixth inning, when back-to-back triples by Hector Gomez and Gerardo Parra made it 3-1.Kershaw was charged with three runs in 7 1/3 innings. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out eight.Since winning his 99th career game on April 17, Kershaw has a 2.95 ERA in three starts, pitching at least six innings in every game. Monday was arguably the best start of the season by the reigning National League MVP.“He was just being Kershaw — pounding guys in, breaking bats, getting ground balls, getting ahead of guys,” said Yasmani Grandal, who caught Kershaw for the second time this season. “He was probably throwing harder (in the eighth inning) than he was in the beginning.”No wonder Kershaw couldn’t find the will to reflect.Hatcher (0-3) retired two of the four batters he faced and took the loss.“A hanging split (to Carlos Gomez) and a broken bat (by Braun) dictated that run,” he said. “It’s pretty frustrating.” A day that began with Milwaukee hiring a new manager ended with a stunning loss — one that Don Mattingly was forced to watch from inside Miller Park. The Dodgers’ manager was ejected in the third inning for arguing a balk call against Kershaw.Bench coach Tim Wallach was acting as the Dodgers’ manager when he pulled Kershaw from a 3-2 game with one out and a runner on second base in the eighth inning.Enter reliever Chris Hatcher, who promptly allowed an RBI double to Carlos Gomez that tied it at 3-3.With Gomez at third base and two outs, the Brewers’ Ryan Braun hit a broken-bat grounder to Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe. Uribe charged and threw on the run — almost in time to get Braun, who was called safe as Gomez scored Milwaukee’s fourth run.Wallach challenged the call by first base umpire Paul Emmel, but it was upheld after a video review.
In the first round of the Italian Serie A, Verona and Roma played 1: 1, and coach of Roma, Rudi Garcia, despite the tie result, praised the performance of B&H national team captain Edin Džeko and Egypt international Mohamed Salah, two players who arrived in the club this summer.Garcia said that he is very satisfied with reinforcements after their first match in the national championship.“Edin played very well in the first half of the match, and he had a good chance at the end as well, but we lacked rhythm, we were not fast enough, nor did we have width of the game. We corrected it by introducing Iago Falquea, who ‘stretched’ defense of Verona. We knew that it will be difficult on Bentegodi, it will be hard for all the other teams that come here as well. We could achieve more points, a collective approach was very good, and we are on the good track, but it was not enough to win against Verona, “said Garcia.He expects better performance and better efficiency of his attackers.“We could have played better in offense, we made some excess moves, however, the condition of this terrain stopped us from playing it at first,” said the coach of Roma.He particularly emphasized that Džeko needs some time to completely fit in the team.“We need to keep in mind that Edin has just recently arrived and he played only one friendly match with us, while Mohamed also had just a little time to adjust. Edin played at first in the first half of the match and that is what we were lacking on the other positions. Salah was close to score and he wanted to stay longer on the field, but the players need to know that I need all of them through the whole season,” concluded Garcia. (Source: klix.ba)
– gun, cutlass found after labourer shot, robbed– salesman arrested for buying stolen propertyThree young men on Monday evening turned themselves over to Police custody in Berbice after being on the run for two days. The men are prime suspects in Saturday night’s robbery at Albion, Corentyne, during which a labourer was shot.Police had been on the hunt for several persons following the robbery which left hospitalised Jagdeo Ganish, 37, of Lot 117 High Reef Albion, Corentyne.The labourer was injured when a bullet pierced his right arm and became lodged in his abdomen. He was also lashed several times with a cutlass during the attack. Both arms were fractured as a result. The cutlass was also reportedly broken.The incident occurred on Saturday evening at about 20:20h.At the time the six masked bandits invaded the building, five persons were at home. They were all watching television, but the door was open to retrieve a cellular phone which was left outside.Injured: Jagdeo GanishWhen the first bandit entered the home, he told everyone not to move. However, the 22-year-old said they all thought the bandits were friends pulling a prank, until the first gunshot was fired at one of them. It shattered a mirror, but no one was injured.The injured man’s father, Gangapersaud Ganish, told Guyana Times that although there were three men in the house at the time, there was not much that could have been done, as the bandits told them to all lie on the floor. He said he was in a bedroom with his wife, and he secured himself.After having his hands fractured, Ganesh rushed into his bedroom for a cutlass to defend the rest of the family, but the cutlass was not in the bedroom because it had been removed by his brother who was weeding the yard earlier in the day. Reports are that as Ganish was going into the bedroom, two shots were fired at him, but they missed.His father related that when Ganish came out of the bedroom, he wrestled with one of the bandits, who was at the time carrying a cutlass. It is then that he was shot.The men escaped with $321,000 along with US$300 and two cellular phones.As they were fleeing the area, the men ran through a yard and stole a bicycle.The Police quickly responded, and based on information gathered, they went to a location at Topoo, Albion, Corentyne and arrested a 22-year-old suspect in whose possession was a black T-shirt which looks similar to the one used to mask one of the suspect’s face during the robbery.The T-shirt was found in his crotch. The suspect has since admitted to the crime; and also, after being interrogated, gave Police the identities of his accomplices and later led them to an area a short distance from where he was apprehended and showed them where the firearm was. The Police found a .32 revolver with two matching rounds, two bicycles and a cutlass.The arrested suspect has also admitted having committed two recent robberies on the Corentyne.Police also received information which led them to a salesman at Ankerville, Port Mourant, where stolen articles from one of the other two robberies were found. The salesman has been arrested.The Police also found the bicycle which was stolen from a yard after the robbery.Meanwhile, the Police are currently making stringent efforts to quickly arrest the other suspects.
