Current, former major leaguers die in Dominican crashes

EZEQUIEL LOPEZ BLANCO, Associated Press br /> SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura and former major leaguer Andy Marte died in separate traffic accidents early Sunday in their native Dominican Republic. Highway patrol spokesman Jacobo Mateo said Ventura died on a highway leading to the town of Juan Adrian, about 40 miles (70 kilometers) northwest of Santo Domingo. He said it was not clear if Ventura was driving. Metropolitan traffic authorities said they had opened an investigation into the crash, as well as that of Marte, who died when the Mercedes Benz he was driving hit a house along a road between San Francisco de Macoris and Pimentel, about 95 miles (150 kilometers) north of the capital. Traffic authority spokesman Diego Pesqueira told The Associated Press there were no rains registered at the time of Ventura's accident but that it is often foggy in the early morning. He added that the vehicle's tires were in good condition and experts think the cause of the accident was an excess of velocity. The official results of the investigation will be released in the coming days. The country, whose roads are among the world's most dangerous, has now lost four current or former major leaguers to traffic accidents in recent years. President Danilo Medina posted tweets saying the nation 'is dressed in mourning with the deaths of Andy Marte and Yordano Ventura, great sportsmen who raised high our national banner.' Ventura, 25, burst onto the baseball scene with a 100 mph fastball and an explosive attitude to match. He was a fierce competitor always willing to challenge hitters inside, then deal with the ramifications when they decided to charge the mound. He went 14-10 with a 3.20 ERA in 2014, his first full season in the big leagues, and the next year he helped the long-downtrodden Royals reach the World Series for the first time since 1985. He proceeded to dominate San Francisco in both of his starts, though the Royals would ultimately lose in seven games. 'Our prayers right now are with Yordano's family as we mourn this young man's passing,' Royals general manager Dayton Moore said in a statement. 'He was so young and so talented, full of youthful exuberance and always brought a smile to everyone he interacted with. We will get through this as an organization, but right now is a time to mourn and celebrate the life of Yordano.' Born June 3, 1991, in Samana, Dominican Republic, Ventura quit school at 14 and was laboring on a construction crew to support his family when he heard about a tryout, which led to a spot in the Royals' academy on the island. The right-handed Ventura went 11-12 with a 4.45 ERA last season, and wound up pitching his entire career for the Royals, going 38-31 with a 3.89 ERA. Fans began arriving at Kauffman Stadium shortly after Ventura's death was announced, leaving flowers, hats and other mementos outside the stadium. Flags outside the ballpark also were lowered to half-staff. Marte, a 33-year-old infielder, played in the Major Leagues from 2005-2010 with Atlanta and Cleveland and returned in 2014 with Arizona. He hit .218 with 21 home runs and 99 RBIs in the big leagues. He spent the last two seasons in South Korea, where he hit 22 homers last year. Both Ventura and Marte were part of the Dominican winter league team Aguilas Cibaenas, though neither was playing this season. 'We have awoken this Sunday with this sad news that we have lost a special being,' club president Winston Llenas said in a statement about Marte that was issued before Ventura's death became known. Ventura is the second young star pitcher to die in past four months. Marlins ace Jose Fernandez, 24, was among three men killed in a boating accident in September. Two other active Dominican baseball players have died on the country's dangerous highways in recent years. St. Louis Cardinal outfielder Oscar Taveras — a close friend of Ventura — died in 2014 when he crashed in his hometown of Puerto Plata. He was 22. Shortstop Andujar Cedeno died at age 31 in a 2000 crash in the city of La Romana. A 2015 study by the World Health Organization found that the Dominican Republic had the highest traffic accident death rate in the Americas, with a rate of 29.3 per 100,000 inhabitants. Marte's family was holding a vigil for him on Sunday and planned to bury him within hours. Ventura's remains were still at a coroner's office in the city of Santiago. ___ Associated Press Sports Writer Dave Skretta contributed to this report from Kansas City. .....»»

Hertha Berlin stumbles in 3-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen

LEVERKUSEN, Germany (AP) — Hertha Berlin missed out on a chance to go third in the Bundesliga as it slipped to a 3-1 loss at Bayer Leverkusen on two goals from Hakan Calhanoglu on Sunday. There was more than a hint of bad luck for Hertha in two of Leverkusen's goals, with Omer Toprak's opener coming after an attempted clearance hit a Hertha player. For the second, a contentious handball decision against Hertha's Marvin Plattenhardt allowed Calhanogulu to score from the penalty spot. Hertha pulled a goal back just before halftime through Valentin Stocker, who scored on the rebound from John Brooks' effort. But Leverkusen held on well through the second half, and scored a third when Calhanoglu volleyed in Kevin Kampl's cross. Hertha's loss in its first game of 2017 sees the team from the German capital stay fifth. Leverkusen, which had won one of its previous six league games, rises two places to eighth. Cologne and Mainz played out a 0-0 draw which sees the teams remain seventh and 11th respectively. Mainz had some chances saved in the early stages of a game often lacking in excitement, while Cologne's Yuya Osako saw a shot saved by Mainz goalkeeper Jonas Loessl late on. .....»»

DALLAS (AP) -- Justin Anderson scored 19 points and Dirk Nowitzki added 13 to help the Dallas Mavericks rout the Los Angeles Lakers 122-73 on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). It was the Mavericks' 13th straight win over the Lakers, who have lost six of their last seven games this season.

It was also the largest margin of defeat in franchise history. All 11 Mavericks who played in the first half scored and had at least one rebound.

Julius Randle scored four of the points, and Luol Deng and Nick Young each hit a three-point shot. The game was tied 20-20 before Devin Harris made a three-point shot with 2:46 remaining for a lead that Dallas never lost. Wesley Matthews and Deron Williams also had 13 points.
