All’s quiet for Cubs at fan convention

CHICAGO --- There was no surprise return for Jake Arrieta. No dramatic entrance for Yu Darvish, Alex Cobb or Greg Holland, either.Kris Bryant   Not even close. The Chicago Cubs settled five of their six potential arbitration cases before the start of their annual fan convention on Friday, including a record $10.85 million, one-year deal for third baseman Kris Bryant. But they remain at an impasse when it comes to another free-agent addition or a big acquisition via trade --- a common refrain during one of the slowest winters for baseball in a long time. "We're not done. We have confidence in this group if this is the 25 we end up taking to spring training," president of baseba...Keep on reading: All’s quiet for Cubs at fan convention.....»»

PBA: No. 1 Gin Kings out to add on ROS troubles

Two-time defending champion Brgy. Ginebra will be looking to maintain pole position in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Saturday. The Gin Kings lead all teams in the season-ending joust with a 7-1 record. They target an eighth win as they take on Rain or Shine in Lucena, Quezon. A win by Ginebra pretty much locks up a twice-to-beat edge in the playoffs and they keep a safe distance from about four other teams at the top of the standings. Meanwhile, the Elasto Painters are still looking for their first win in the Governors' Cup. ROS has struggled all conference long, stumbling to a 0-4 record. Tip off for Ginebra-ROS will be at 5:00 p.m. live from the Quezon Convention Center.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Drum rolls, fiery exchanges mark Day 2 of COC filing

      The second day of filing of certificates of candidacy (COC) was another proof that elections in Philippines are not just a simple political affair but more of fiesta and circus. Not only did senatorial aspirants and partylist candidates submitted their COCs to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) main office on Friday, but they also brought a mood resembling Philippine festivities. After a quiet filing of COC by Senator Nancy Binay around 9:00 a.m., the fanfare began when former police chief Ronald dela Rosa formalized his senatorial candidacy under the ruling party, PDP-Laban.

Man-eating tiger to be lured with Calvin Klein cologne

Authorities desperate to capture a tiger gone "rogue" in India plan to use Calvin Klein cologne as part of their operations, reports the New York Times. A female tiger named T-1 has been linked to as many as 13 deaths in central India, striking fear in the town of Pandharkawada. T-1 and her cubs have been hunting humans: she grabs them by the neck and they chomp down on their flesh. Tigers don't normally eat human flesh, but the lack of prey such as deer has left her few options, said hunter Nawab Shafat Ali Khan in the report. For six months, forest rangers have been trying to trap her but to no avail, even after enlisting the help of hundreds of foot soldiers, veterinarians on e...Keep on reading: Man-eating tiger to be lured with Calvin Klein cologne.....»»

Championship triple-header highlights Pinoy Pride 45 in November

Filipino boxing fans are in for a treat this November as ALA Promotions' Pinoy Pride returns with an exciting championship triple-header on deck for Pinoy Pride 45 in Cebu City.  Headlining the card will be a WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight Championship bout between defending champion Jeo "Santino" Santisima of Masbate and Mexican Victor Uriel “Yuca” Lopez. Regared as one of ALA Promotions’ fastest rising stars, the 22-year old Santisima (16-2, 14 KO) is unbeaten since 2014 and is riding a remarkable 14-fight winning streak. Santisima captured his first championship back in June of 2018 with a third-round TKO victory over Likit Chane to claim the WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight title. Looking to make Santisima’s title reign a short one is Mexico City’s Lopez (13-6-1, 6 KO), who’s won six of his last seven contests. The current reigning WBC Latino Super Bantamweight Interim Champion, Lopez is looking to add the WBO Oriental title to his list of accolades. Also on the card, the blonde-haired bomber himself, “Prince” Albert Pagara of Maasin, Southern Leyte will be making his return to the ring to defend his WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight Championship against Ghanaian George Krampah. The hard-hitting Pagara (30-1, 21 KO) is working his way back up to the top of the super bantamweight ranks, and is currently on a solid four-fight winning streak. In his last outing, the 24-year old reclaimed the WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight crown with a three-round destruction of Laryea Gabriel Odoi in his hometown of Maasin. Looking to avenge his fellow-Ghanaian is Krampah (14-3, 12 KO), who will be making his Philippine boxing debut. A former Ghanaian Featherweight Champion and WBO Africa Featherweight Championship contender, Krampah will try to bring the WBO Inter-Continental title back home to Accra. In a featured super flyweight contest, ALA Promotions star prospect Kevin Jake “KJ” Cataraja gets his first shot at a championship when he meets Mexican Victor Hugo “Scarface” Reyes for the vacant WBO World Youth Super Flyweight Championship. One of the most promising young talents on the ALA Promotions roster of boxers, the 23-year old Cataraja (8-0-0, 7 KO) has the potential to be one of the promotion’s most exciting young fighters. A proven knockout artist with seven of his eight wins coming via KO or TKO, the former Palarong Pambansa and amateur standout gets his first shot at a professional championship. Standing in Cataraja’s way is a fellow young stud in Tijuana’s Reyes (9-1-1, 7 KO). Possessing an almost-equally impressive KO ratio as his Filipino counterpart, Reyes has won his last two contests, and is also looking for his first taste of boxing gold. Pinoy Pride 45 will emanate from the IEC Convention Center in Cebu City on Saturday, November 24th. Catch the telecast on ABS-CBN channel 2 and ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

Kings’ best yet to come

Help is coming for Barangay Ginebra. Greg Slaughter, Sol Mercado and Art dela Cruz may return from injuries this Saturday when the Gin Kings head to Lucena City, Quezon, to face the winless Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. Slaughter has not played since early September due to a sprained ankle while Mercado had surgery on his meniscus. Dela Cruz, on the other hand, has yet to make his Ginebra debut due to an Achilles tendon injury he sustained while training for the National team last year.

Kershaw allows 2 hits, Dodgers blank Braves 3-0 for 2-0 lead

By Beth Harris, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — With Sandy Koufax sitting in the front row, Clayton Kershaw pitched the best postseason game of his career, motivated partly by being passed over as the Dodgers' Game 1 starter. He responded with a postseason career-high eight innings of two-hit ball in his team's second straight playoff shutout, and Manny Machado slugged a two-run homer as Los Angeles beat the Atlanta Braves 3-0 on Friday night for a 2-0 lead in their NL Division Series. "I think that it was one of the best outings that I've seen," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "He was in complete control." The Dodgers used a nearly identical formula to win 6-0 in Game 1 behind Hyun-Jin Ryu, who allowed only four two-out singles over seven innings, and home runs by Joc Pederson, Max Muncy and Enrique Hernandez. Kershaw was even better. The left-hander struck out three and walked none in the longest scoreless playoff outing for a Dodgers pitcher since Jose Lima tossed a complete-game shutout in Game 3 of the 2004 NLDS against St. Louis. "Maybe a tick, for sure," Kershaw said of earning some extra satisfaction. "But Ryu threw so unbelievable last night that you just want to match him. That's all I was trying to do." Ryu and Kershaw became the second pair of Dodgers starters to have consecutive postseason games with seven-plus scoreless innings. Jerry Reuss and Burt Hooton did it in 1981, against Houston and Montreal. The Dodgers joined the 1921 New York Yankees as the only teams to open a postseason series with back-to-back shutouts, according to STATS. They recorded their first consecutive shutouts since Games 2 and 3 of the 2016 NL Championship Series against the Cubs. Los Angeles can sweep the best-of-five series in Game 3 on Sunday in Atlanta, where the Baby Braves will be looking to score for the first time this postseason. "I see the frustration those guys have against this guy," Braves starter Anibal Sanchez said of his teammates facing Kershaw. Kershaw got bypassed as the Game 1 starter in favor of Ryu after the three-time Cy Young Award winner had started eight of the Dodgers' past 10 postseason openers. Roberts said it was done to give both Ryu and Kershaw five days of rest between starts. "This guy is a potential Hall of Fame player," Roberts said. "So to have the noise around him, but when it comes to his day to start and to help his club win a game, I had no concern that anything was going to affect him." One more victory would put Los Angeles in the NLCS for the third straight year. The Dodgers beat the Cubs last season and lost to them in 2016. Kershaw ran out to the mound as though he was going to pitch the ninth, bringing cheers from the sellout crowd of 54,452. But when Roberts went out to pull his ace after 85 pitches, fans booed. Roberts deked to force the hand of Atlanta manager Brian Snitker, who ended up wasting Tyler Flowers before sending up Lucas Duda as the pinch-hitter. "I felt that that was a way that you can use their two best hitters off the bench and get our guy in there," Roberts said. Kershaw was fine with it, too. "The plan all along was if they burned their bench, which is what we wanted to do and Flowers came out, that Kenley had the ninth," he said. Kenley Jansen gave up a one-out single to Ronald Acuna Jr. before earning the save. Machado hit a two-run shot on a 3-0 pitch from Sanchez with two outs in the first. Joc Pederson doubled leading off. Yasmani Grandal homered on an 0-2 pitch from Sanchez leading off the fifth to make it 3-0. Acuna doubled to deep left-center on Kershaw's first pitch. He became the first Braves runner to reach third base in the series when Johan Camargo grounded out to Kershaw. After Acuna's double, Kershaw retired 14 consecutive batters until Ender Inciarte reached on an infield single with two outs in the fifth. Ex-Dodger Charlie Culberson grounded into a fielder's choice to shortstop, with Inciarte out at second. "He has a feel for everything and when his curveball's on, it's going to be a good night for him," Culberson said. "He's one of the best, and he showed it." Kershaw was sharp on defense, too. He chased around to grab a ball hit by Camargo and fired to first in time for the initial out of the fourth. One inning later, Kershaw did a 180-degree spin after a comebacker by Ozzie Albies struck him in the hamstring, slipped on the grass and made the throw to first for the second out of the fifth. A trainer briefly came out to check on Kershaw, who threw one warmup pitch to prove he was fine. "It just got me in a good spot, kind of in the belly of the leg right there," Kershaw said, "so maybe a little sore tomorrow, but I should be good." The Dodgers backed Kershaw with a double play to end the sixth after he plunked pinch-hitter Lane Adams leading off and Acuna Jr. grounded into a fielder's choice. "A lot of great plays all the way around," Kershaw said. The Braves' offense was anemic again. Other than Acuna's double and his single in the ninth, they were limited to a two-out single by Inciarte in the fifth. Freddie Freeman was hitless with a strikeout in four at-bats. Nick Markakis went 0 for 3 with a strikeout, and Albies was 0 for 3. "You can't blame any one person," Snitker said. "I mean, it's just our whole lineup is having a hard time." KERSH'S KIDS Kershaw juggled daughter Cali and son Charley on his lap in the postgame interview room. With a pacifier in his mouth, Charley bopped the microphone with his hand a couple of times and Cali smiled at the crowd of reporters and cameras. "Y'all are supposed to be in bed," Kershaw said, clearly pleased to have his hands full. UP NEXT With their season on the line, the NL East champion Braves are likely to start RHP Kevin Gausman on Sunday. He came over from Baltimore before the July 31 trade deadline in a six-player deal and was 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA in 10 starts for Atlanta. The Dodgers are going with rookie RHP Walker Buehler, who was 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA this season. Buehler last pitched on Monday, allowing one hit in 6 2/3 innings and striking out three in the NL West tiebreaker victory over the Rockies......»»

LSGH denies San Beda s entry into NCAA 94 Final Four

STANDINGS LSGH 13-2 (Final Four) MAPUA 11-4 SAN BEDA 10-5 JRU 9-6 LPU 8-7 ARELLANO 6-8 PERPETUAL 6-9 SAN SEBASTIAN 5-10 (eliminated) LETRAN 3-11 (eliminated) EAC 3-12 (eliminated) College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills remains the first and only team assured of a place in the next round of the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. San Beda High School tried its best to get that as well on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, but was instead resoundingly rejected by the Junior Blazers who registered a 91-78 come-from-behind win. Main man Joel Cagulangan topped the scoring column with 24 points to go along with six rebounds and three assists, but only made 9-of-22 shots from the field In the endgame, it was Sydney Mosqueda who came through, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the tight final frame. “We’re happy with the win because our boys showed resiliency,” head coach Marvin Bienvenida said post-game. The defending champions were down by five points inside the last four minutes until Mosqueda went on a 5-0 run to tie the tally. The Red Cubs again took the lead, 75-72, and even had a chance to increase it, but Inand Fornilos stole the ball and the possession from them. At the other end, Mosqueda then set up Fornilos for an easy look inside that proved to be the go-ahead basket. San Beda would keep coming from that point, but Cagulangan had all the answers for CSB-LSGH which strengthened its stranglehold on the top-seed. Now at 13-2, they are one win away from clinching the twice-to-beat advantage. “We are still taking it one game at a time. We are not done proving to ourselves that we are getting better each and every game,” coach Marvin said. For the now 10-5 Red Cubs, Zach Estacio showed the way with 13 points while Joshua Lazaro also had a 10-point, 12-rebound double-double. A win would have assured them of at least a playoff for a Final Four spot. Instead, they now find themselves still behind 11-4 Mapua High School and barely ahead of 9-6 Jose Rizal High School and 8-7 Lyceum of the Philippines University. In the day’s other game, University of Perpetual Help stayed alive after beating down San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 82-67. Emman Galman was on fire all game long and wound up with a career-best 30 points and was backstopped by Tony Ogunsanya who posted a 20-point, 14-rebound double-double. Just at halftime, Galman already had 17 markers to his name, almost matching the output of their opponents at 22. At 6-9, the Junior Altas still have a boxer’s chance at snatching a playoff berth. On the other hand, now at 5-10, the Staglets are no longer in contention for the Final Four. Kean Baclaan fronted their effort in this one with 24 points, six rebounds, five steals, and four assists.

Rockies top Cubs 2-1 in 13 innings in epic wild-card game

By Jay Cohen, Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — Tony Wolters hit a tie-breaking single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Tuesday night in an epic NL wild-card game. In the longest win-or-go-home postseason game in major league history, Wolters entered as part of a double switch in the bottom of the 12th. The reserve catcher came up with runners at the corners and drove in Trevor Story with a liner back up the middle off losing pitcher Kyle Hendricks, quieting the crowd of 40,151 on a crisp fall night. After playing its third big game over three days in three different cities, Colorado now heads to Milwaukee to open a best-of-five Division Series against the NL Central champion Brewers on Thursday at Miller Park. Scott Oberg, the sixth Colorado pitcher, fanned Kris Bryant for the final out of the 12th and then struck out the side in the 13th to end the longest postseason game in Wrigley Field history. Terrance Gore tried to sell that he was hit by a pitch, but was sent back to the plate after a replay review confirmed the initial call. After Albert Almora Jr. struck out swinging for the final out, Wolters ran out and grabbed Oberg. They were soon joined by the rest of the excited Rockies in a rollicking purple mob near the mound. Wolters' clutch swing in his playoff debut and Oberg's relief effort won it for the Rockies. Previously, the longest win-or-go-home games in the postseason were 12-inning affairs in the 2014 AL wild-card round and Game 7 of the 1924 World Series. It had pretty much everything, too. Hendricks was the third starting pitcher used by the Cubs, after Jon Lester worked six solid innings and Cole Hamels was pressed into action after the teams were tied at 1 after nine. Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado exchanged a memorable hug with Javier Baez after he tagged the excitable Cubs star in the 11th. Colorado moved on to the Division Series for the first time since 2009. The Rockies, who lost to Arizona in the wild-card game a year ago, will face NL Central champion Milwaukee in Game 1 on Thursday at Miller Park......»»
