Kevin Belingon gets submitted by Bibiano Fernandes at ONE:CENTURY

TOKYO, JAPAN - Team Lakay's Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon of the Philippines came up short in his attempt to reclaim the ONE Bantamweight World Championship after getting submitted by reigning titleholder Bibiano "Flash Fernandes in the second round of their co-main event bout at ONE: Century Part 2, Sunday evening at the Ryogoku Kokugikan here.  Belingon came out aggressive early, throwing hard kicks to the legs. Fernandes uncorked a few kicks of his own but ultimately decided to bring the fight down to the ground, where he is at his best.  On the mat, Fernandes remained in control as he slowly worked towards an arm-triangle choke, but Belingon was able to escape the submission attempt and survive into the next round.  Fernandes shot in early and scored the takedown once again in the second round, and was able to ultimately latch on to Belingon's back, which spelled the beginning of the end for the Pinoy challenger.  With one of the best grapplers in the world locking him up from behind, Belingon found himself in an undesireable position as Fernandes locked in a deep rear naked choke, forcing the Filipino to tap out within moments.  The stoppage time came in at 2:16 of the second round.  With the win, Fernandes likely closes the book on his storied rivalry with Belingon. .....»»

PBA: Brownlee triple-double overcomes Wells’ 52 as Ginebra beats SMB

Barangay Ginebra just barely avoided another meltdown in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup. The Gin Kings ended San Miguel’s undefeated streak, picking up a huge 129-124 win Sunday at the Big Dome. Ginebra saw its once 18-point lead fade away in the fourth quarter as the Beermen pushed back led by super import Dez Wells. Unlike the NLEX loss in Dubai however, the Gin Kings stood tough in the endgame, relying on their own super import in Justin Brownlee to pull through. Brownlee finished with a second straight triple-double, dropping 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 14 assists. JB had big local help as Stanley Pringle added 27 points, LA Tenorio had 19, and Japeth Aguilar scoring 17. Jeff Chan was also good for 15 points as Ginebra arrested a two-game slide for a 2-2 mark. The Beermen dropped to 4-1 for a share of second place with idle NLEX. In a sensational performance, Dez Wells put up 52 points for San Miguel in a losing effort.   The Scores: Ginebra 129 - Brownlee 28, Pringle 27, Tenorio 19, Aguilar 17, Chan 15, Dela Cruz 11, Slaughter 8, Mariano 4, Thompson 0. San Miguel 124 - Wells 52, Fajardo 16, Lassiter 16, Cabagnot 13, Ross 10, Pessumal 9, Santos 7, Standhardinger 2, Nabong 0. Quarterscores: 35-32, 71-59, 96-85, 129-124.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Brownlee credits team after “tough” triple-double

Ginebra’s Sunday clash against San Miguel Beer in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup sure had shades of Dubai. The Gin Kings got a triple-double from super import Justin Brownlee but they were on the brink of a meltdown after leading by double-digits. Fortunately, Ginebra learned its lessons from a 28-point collapse to NLEX in the Middle East, holding on for a huge 129-124 win against the Beernen, improving to 2-2 in the standings. The Gin Kings built an 18-point lead in the seond half and needed all of it late in the fourth to secure the victory. “We knew if we get up on this team, we’re gonna expect to come back. They got a lot of weapons,” Brownlee said. “But we just knew if we stick to our defense, we can try to do whatever we can to pull it out,” he added. In Dubai, Brownlee had a 40-point triple-double in the loss to the Road Warriors. Against the Beermen, Brownlee finished with 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 14 assists. It may seem like Ginebra’s super import is making it easy out there but he assures it’s anything but. “I hope it could be normal [putting up triple-doubles] but man, it’s very tough,” Brownlee said. “Like I said, just gotta give a lot of credit to the team, they hit some shots. LA hit some big shots, Stanley had a great game, and Japeth,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Scherzer no-hit try into 7th, Nats top Cards, lead NLCS 2-0

By Jay Cohen, Associated Press ST. LOUIS (AP) — Max Scherzer followed Aníbal Sánchez's near no-hitter with a try of his own and the stingy Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 on Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the NL Championship Series. Scherzer didn't allow a hit until Paul Goldschmidt led off the seventh inning with a single that left fielder Juan Soto played conservatively with a one-run lead. A day earlier, Sánchez held the Cardinals hitless until José Martínez had a pinch-single with two down in the eighth. Sánchez and Scherzer also began the 2013 ALCS with consecutive no-hit bids of at least five innings for Detroit against Boston. Scherzer, a St. Louis native who played college ball for the University of Missouri, struck out 11 and walked two in seven innings. It doesn't get any easier for St. Louis, either. Ace Stephen Strasburg gets the ball for the wild-card Nationals when the best-of-seven series moves to Washington for Game 3 on Monday night. Jack Flaherty pitches for the Cards. St. Louis got another solid performance from Adam Wainwright, who struck out 11 in 7 1/3 innings. But after getting only one hit in the opener, the Cardinals' inconsistent lineup managed just three hits against Scherzer and the Washington bullpen. The NL Central champions got their first run of the series when center fielder Michael A. Taylor misplayed Martínez's pinch-hit liner into an RBI double with two out in the eighth. But Dexter Fowler flied out on Sean Doolittle's next pitch. Patrick Corbin got the first out of the ninth before Daniel Hudson closed for his third save of the playoffs. The right-hander was reinstated from the postseason paternity list before the game after he missed the series opener to be with his wife, Sara, for the birth of their third child, a girl named Millie. Corbin is expected to start Game 4 for the Nationals on Tuesday night. Scherzer, who has pitched two no-hitters in the regular season, has a record five career postseason no-hit bids of at least five innings, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The three-time Cy Young Award winner came closest to finishing in Game 3 of the 2017 NL Division Series, getting one out in the seventh inning before allowing a hit. There have only been two postseason no-hitters. Don Larsen threw a perfect game for the New York Yankees against Brooklyn in the 1956 World Series, and Roy Halladay pitched a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2010 NL Division Series. The Cardinals got one baserunner into scoring position while Scherzer was on the mound. Kolten Wong walked with one out in the first and stole second, but Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna struck out. After Goldschmidt's hit, Ozuna struck out again and Yadier Molina bounced into an inning-ending double play on Scherzer's final pitch of the afternoon. Washington went ahead to stay when Taylor homered on Wainwright's first pitch of the third. The Nationals added two more on Adam Eaton's two-run double down the first-base line with one out in the eighth. TRAINER'S ROOM Nationals: C Kurt Suzuki returned to the starting lineup after being sidelined by a head injury. He got hurt by a foul ball that ricocheted during Washington's clinching victory in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Wednesday night. ... OF Victor Robles was out of the lineup again because of a strained right hamstring. He got hurt in Game 2 against Los Angeles. UP NEXT Flaherty struck out eight in six innings in St. Louis' 13-1 victory over Atlanta in Game 5 of the NL Division Series on Wednesday. The right-hander turns 24 on Tuesday. Strasburg made two starts against St. Louis this season, going 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA. He has allowed four runs in 15 innings in the playoffs......»»

Team Lakay s Lito Adiwang victorious at ONE: CENTURY

TOKYO, JAPAN - Team Lakay's newest addition to the ONE Championship roster was impressive in his promotional debut, as Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang began his ONE career with a first-round stoppage victory over Japanese champion Senzo Ikeda at ONE: Century, Sunday morning at the Ryogoku Kokugikan here.  Adiwang, a ONE Warrior Series contract winner, wasted little time in bringing the action to the ground, taking Ikeda down and working towards a modified armbar submission attempt.  Moments later, Ikeda had managed to escape the position, but the action stopped after the Japanese star appeared to have suffered an injury to his arm.  The official stoppage came at 1:57 of Round 1.  Ikeda kicks things off in spectacular fashion for Team Lakay, who hope to have a big night here in Tokyo. .....»»

MPBL: Batino is perfect as Rizal is no match for Bataan

The Bataan Risers continue their revival with a 78-57 home win against the Rizal Xentro Mall Golden Coolers on Saturday night in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. Ryan Batino copped best player of the game honors with 13 points, 5 from 5 from the field in front of the Risers fans in the Bataan People's Center. "Since the last game consistent kami sa pasahan, nagtiwala kami sa isa't isa," said Batino, who co-topscored for Bataan alongside Chito Jaime. Bataan go back above .500 at 9-8 while it's yet another loss for Rizal, taking them to 3-12 in the North Division. The Risers fired in the last seven points of the first half with 5 from Joseph Nalos to take a 37-31 halftime lead. In the third quarter with Bataan up 43-33 Nalos was thrown out of the game for a rash punch at Jack Hoyohoy after the Golden Cooler laid a hard screen on him. Bataan reeled off an 11-0 run late in the period and lead 60-43 going into the fourth. Rizal were unable to mount any challenge in the final period as Bataan cruised to victory. Jordan Rios led the visitors with 12 points. In the opening game of the doubleheader, the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors weathered a furious late fightback to trip the Bicol Volcanoes LCC Stores, 75-73. A trio of Realtors provided the bulk of the scoring for Pasig, with Jeric Teng leading with 20 markers and Robbie Manalang and Leo Najorda compiling 17 and 16 respectively. Pasig led a listless Bicol squad 40-32 at the half and when Fonso Gotladera pocketed a jumper for a 71-54 lead for the Realtors five minutes left in the fourth, the game looked done and dusted. But Bicol's Ronjay Buenafe would have nothing of it. The ex-pro connected on four straight three-pointers as part of a stunning 19-2 run capped by a Hafer Mondragon trey to square the game at 73-73. However, Pasig would have the last laugh, with Leo Najorda knocking in a jumper to complete the scoring with 25 seconds left. Buenafe had one last chance to win the game but his last-second three-pointer fell short. Alwyn Alday led Bicol with 21 points. It's a sixth straight loss for Monel Kallos' Volcanoes who are slipping out of the playoff bunch at 8-11. Pasig on the other hand are now sporting an 11-5 card, good for 4th in the North Division.                .....»»

PBA: Northport hits two birds with one stone vs. Phoenix

Northport hit two birds with one stone Saturday in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup. Phoenix is the only team the Batang Pier have not beaten since last season, being 0-5 against the Fuel Masters. But with an 80-70 win at the Big Dome, Northport finally snapped that losing skid. It’s even better because the Batang Pier likewise ended a four-game slide in the Governors’ Cup, improving to 2-4 in the team standings. “Seriously speaking, law of averages lang. 0-5 kami dyan sa Phoenix, di pa kami nanalo since last season,” head coach Pido Jarencio said. “It’s about time na manalo naman tayo,” he added. With another long losing skid this conference, the Phoenix game was practically a must-win for Northport. They got the job done and now the Batang Pier have life again. “This win is for the management and the players. They deserve this. Medyo bugbog na. Kapag sunod-sunod na talo, minsan kapag practice wala nang pumapasok sa mga utak nila eh,” Jarencio said. “At least nagkaroon ng konting blessing satin. Blessing naman yan lahat. Maganda yung galawan, maganda yung laro, maganda yung depensa. Sana magtuloy-tuloy na lang,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Phoenix thinking big picture with injured Matthew Wright

Phoenix still can’t get anything substansial in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, being stuck with a 2-5 record. Worse, the Fuel Masters’ top local star in Mattthew Wright has been compromised with plantar fasciitis. Wright has been playing sparingly during Phoenix’s last few games and while he told head coach Louie Alas that he can manage, Alas has chosen not to put his franchise player in any more risk. Saturday against Northport, Wright started but only played six minutes. “Nakikita ko he’s one step late sa lahat ng situation,” Alas said of Wright. “Ayoko namang ma-aggravate yung plantar niya so I just gave him the rest. Kapag ganun yun, magpipilit nang magpipilit yun so baka lalong sumakit,” he addded. Phoenix has almost two weeks of break before its next game and with a slim chance of still making the playoffs, having Wright healthy to end the conference is the best play for the Fuel Masters. “Sakin iniisip ko na bigger picture,” Alas said of Wright. “Pahinga ko na lang para sa mga future games namin,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP 82: UP s team effort didn t end even after the final buzzer

The action didn't stop for the University of the Philippines even after it jumped on University of the East and got back into the win column, Saturday at MOA Arena. After their post-win interview, reigning and defending MVP Bright Akhuetie suddenly felt all the pain he had been holding back as he fought all game long for the Fighting Maroons. Already on his way back to the locker room, he felt he couldn't walk on his own anymore and had to lean on the wall before having to sit on the floor. Teammate Jun Manzo, who was part of the post-game conference alongside acting coach Ricky Dandan, didn't leave the Nigerian powerhouse behind and sat on the floor as well. Not long after, Akhuetie asked coach Ricky to send for physical therapist Andrew Harris. Harris, indeed, came running, but he wasn't alone. UP Ikot to UP Ambulance real quick After twisting his ankle during the game, Bright Akhuetie needed his rescue team to come through ???? #UAAPSeason82 pic.twitter.com/YehTfv7EV5 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) October 12, 2019 Also there to come to the rescue were Janjan Jaboneta, Jaybie Mantilla, David Murrell, Kobe Paras, Ricci Rivero, and James Spencer. It was then that Murrell and Paras who carried the 6-foot-8 big man all the way back to their locker room. After getting dressed and walking out of the dugout, Akhuetie said he was pleasantly surprised about what State U did for him. "I didn't expect it. I thought it was just gonna be Andrew then I saw everybody," he said. He then continued, "That just shows how much we're together, how much we're a family. I'll do that for my family and they'll do that for me as well." According to the 23-year-old, he will be all good - especially as his teammates were all there for him. "I just sprained my ankle, but I'll be fine. I had to go ice it, but after the ice, I actually feel better," he said. More importantly, Akhuetie said UP will be all good - especially after this much-needed win. As he put it, "I've always been sure of the team. It's just that we need to get it together and play as a team." He then continued, "This game just shows how much we can do. It's just consistency." Without a doubt, the Fighting Maroons' team effort does not end when the final whistle is blown. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Jun Manzo s UAAP 82 breakout all thanks to happy meal from Paul Desiderio

Jun Manzo has not had a great UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament thus far. The University of the Philippines' graduating guard has posted per game counts of 6.1 points in 36.7 shooting, 2.9 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.3 steals and has had quite a few instances of brilliance. On the whole, however, the Fighting Maroons' so-called x-factor was yet to make his presence felt. And he is the very first to acknowledge that. "Nag-struggle kasi talaga ako ngayon," he said. That all came to an end, Saturday at MOA Arena, as Manzo energized State U to a much-needed bounce back win with 17 points, five assists, and three rebounds. Afterward, the first words out of his mouth were of thanks to Paul Desiderio. "Kinausap ako ni Paul kasi nawawala na kumpyansa ko. Siya yung nagbigay ng kumpyansa ulit," he said in their post-win interview. As it turns out, the Diliman legend got in touch with his old pal to remind him to keep his head up. "Last game, ang sama ng laro ko. Talagang nada-down ako, 'di ko alam gagawin," Manzo shared. "Siguro, nabasa niya ako kasi matagal kaing nagkasama." And so, Desiderio refilled the UP playmakers' spirits - and stomach. "Parang nage-gets nga niya ako so pinapunta niya ako sa bahay niya. Nagluto siya ng isda at sabaw," the latter narrated. He then continued, "Pagkatapos kumain, kinausap niya akong heart-to-heart na wag ka mawalan ng pag-asa, matagal pa ang season. Dahil dun, gumaan loob ko." Apparently, that was just the refill Manzo needed as he turned in his best game of the season with the Fighting Maroons nothing but determined to get back on track. "Siyempre, si Paul naman yung kumuha sa akin (galing Cebu) tapos parang kapatid ko na siya rito sa Manila. Malaking bagay na kinausap niya ako kaya naisip kong dapat, 'di talaga ako mawawala sa season na 'to," he said. He then continued, "Lumalakas loob ko lagi pag kinakausap ko siya. Ngayon, nag-click talaga lahat salamat kay Paul." Moving forward, the veteran court general is only hoping to build on his breakthrough in the season - with or without a happy meal from Desiderio. "Sana, matuloy-tuloy ko 'to," he expressed. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: McDaniels scores 51 in TNT comeback win over Bolts

TNT may have just truly unleashed KJ McDaniels. The KaTropa overcame a slow start Saturday to turn down Meralco in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, taking a 116-113 win at the Big Dome. McDaniels shot 68 percent and scored 51 points, leading TNT’s comeback from 19 down. He also had 10 rebounds and four blocks in the win. With the victory, the KaTropa are still in solo first place with a 6-0 record and an early playoff berth. After McDaniels, RR Pogoy scored 23 and Jayson Castro had 21 as TNT overcame a 16-point first quarter by dropping 100 the rest of the way. Meralco saw its three-game run snapped with the loss and dropped to 3-2 in the team standings. Two-time Best Import Allen Durham led the Bolts with 43 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists, but his final three to send the game in overtime barely missed the mark.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: “Dentist na lang ulit,” Lee says after losing tooth again

Paul Lee is pretty unlucky with his tooth. Lee chipped his tooth for the second time in four years in the PBA, with the latest one Friday in the Governors’ Cup against San Miguel Beer. With less than three minutes to go, Lee went up for a layup and that challenged by San Miguel import Dez Wells. There was body-to-body contact and Lee went down the floor hard, eventually losing his tooth after landing face first. No foul was called. “Masakit, pero okay naman,” Lee said after. “Part of the game. That’s it,” he added. Lee confirmed that his tooth that got chipped this time is the same one from 2015 in a separate incident that also involved an opposing team's import. Four years ago back when he was still with Rain or Shine, Lee got elbowed by Ivan Johnson, causing him to lose his tooth originally. “Yeah, yung old pa rin pero okay lang,” Lee said. “Okay naman, medyo dizzy lang nung una. Dentist lang ulit, balik na ulit sa dati,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Report: Eric Bledsoe suffers rib injury, will miss 2-3 weeks

NBA.com staff report Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe is expected to miss up to two to three weeks with a rib injury, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Per Charania, Bledsoe has suffered a small fracture of his rib. A two-or three-week absence from Friday would put Bledsoe's return sometime around late October or early November. Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe has suffered a small fracture of his rib and will miss up to two-to-three weeks, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. — Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) October 11, 2019 However, Bucks GM Jon Horst told Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Bledsoe did not fracture his ribs. Instead, Horst says Bledsoe fractured the cartilage between two of his ribs and that Bledsoe may not necessarily be out two-to-three weeks. Velazquez reports that Bledsoe has fractured cartilage in his 9th and 10th rib and there isn't a risk of re-injury or further complications. Whether or not Bledsoe comes back sooner or later than 2-3 weeks depends on his pain tolerance. Bledsoe has fractured cartilage in his 9th & 10th rib. It's a case of pain tolerance; there isn't risk of reinjury or further complications. Timetable could still be 2-3 weeks, but he can play when discomfort goes down to minimal. Timing will become clearer in the next few days. — Matt Velazquez (@Matt_Velazquez) October 11, 2019 The first two weeks of the Bucks' 2019-20 schedule are an even split of road and home games (three apiece) before Week 3 begins. After that, they play seven of their next 10 games on the road, including a stretch that features dates with Western Conference contenders the LA Clippers (Nov. 6), Utah Jazz (Nov. 8) and the Indiana Pacers (Nov. 16). Last season, Bledsoe appeared and started in 78 games, averaging 15.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game on 48.4% shooting (and 32.9% 3-point shooting). He received a four-year extension from the Bucks last season as he played a key role in Milwaukee amassing the Eastern Conference's best record en route to a run to the East finals. Bledsoe's absence means veteran George Hill will get the majority of the minutes while he heals. Last season, Hill averaged 7.6 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.3 apg and shot 45.2% overall and 31.4% on 3-pointers. In addition, two-way player Frank Mason III could see a stint with the Bucks rather than taking his usual spot with the G League's Wisconsin Herd......»»
