Kevin Ferrer sees UST s fabled 3Ps in super rookie CJ Cansino

University of Sto. Tomas’ past and present converged last Sunday. Kevin Ferrer, once a stalwart for the Growling Tigers, was present to witness firsthand the budding stardom of their super rookie in CJ Cansino. And after just one game, the now Ginebra Gin King was left nothing but impressed. “Sobrang aggressive niya. Ang sarap niyang panoorin,” he told reporters while his alma mater was pulling off an upset over Far Eastern University. So impressed was he that, in his eyes, Cansino would have fit in quite nicely with the UST teams of his day. “Sobrang tapang niya. Nandun yung tinatawag namin na ‘3 Ps’ – yung puso, pride, palaban,” he shared. He then continued, “Sana, mahawa niya yung teammates niya sa aggressiveness niya.” When he was still donning the gold and white, Ferrer lived by the three pillars instilled by then head coach Pido Jarencio – puso, pride, and palaban. And according to the two-time PBA champion himself, UST’s new super rookie is more aggressive than he himself. “Mas aggressive siya, ako magulang lang e,” he kidded. For his part, Cansino was modest as always and expressed gratitude for hearing nothing but good words from one of the greats of their school. As he put it, “Sobrang saya ko kasi si Kevin Ferrer, PBA na and naabot na niya yung pangarap ng kahit sinong player. Grateful lang ako na masabihan niya nang ganun.” For the super rookie to continue fulfilling his destiny, the now PBA star had this piece of advice. “Wag siyang mapagod mag-improve. Kung nasaan siya, dapat higitan pa niya kasi kailangang nag-iimprove siya every day dahil future King Tiger siya,” he said. Along with the “3 Ps” and being King Tigers, Ferrer and Cansino also share the similarity of being former MVPs from their school’s Juniors program who then decided to stay. And in that light, both of them wanted nothing more than to give their all for the Growling Tigers. “Ako po, gusto ko lang talaga ibigay yung best ko for UST,” Cansino said. Knowing exactly how that feels, Ferrer is urging the faithful over at Espana to do nothing but support their resurgent squad. “Sobrang saya ko na nag-stay siya at ‘di na nga siya umalis sa tahanan namin. Sana, full support pa ang UST sa kanya para mas ma-boost pa yung game niya,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Pacers keep key piece in place by giving Turner new deal

INDIANAPOLIS --- The Indiana Pacers have signed 22-year-old Myles Turner to a contract extension. Team officials made the announcement Monday but declined to provide details of the deal. It is a four-year deal worth $72 million, espn.com reported. A message was left by The Associated Press with Turner's listed agent. The signing means Indiana will have two key players --- Turner and All-Star guard Victor Oladipo --- under contract for the next three seasons. Turner was taken No. 11 overall in the 2015 NBA draft and finished third in the league with 1.82 blocks last season. He also averaged 12.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Price, Red Sox bounce back, beat Astros 7-5, tie ALCS 1-1

By Jimmy Golen, Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — David Price went home a winner in a postseason start for the first time in his career. That, he insisted, is all he ever cared about. "This is bigger than David Price," he said on Sunday night. "This isn't about me. This is about the Boston Red Sox." Price was good enough, the Red Sox relievers were even better, and Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a go-ahead, three-run double off the Green Monster to lead Boston to a 7-5 victory over the Houston Astros and tie the AL Championship Series at one game apiece. Price fell one out short of qualifying for the win, which would have been his first in 11 postseason starts. But it was the first time his team had won a playoff game he started, snapping a record run of October futility. "It's baby steps," said Price, who entered the night 0-9 in 10 career playoff starts. "I expect myself to be great in big moments, and I haven't done that thus far in my career. But I came here to win, period. I came here to win a World Series, and to do it multiple times. And that's what I'm about." Game 3 is Tuesday in Houston, followed by two more at Minute Maid Park and a chance for the defending World Series champions to clinch a second straight AL pennant at home. Marwin Gonzalez homered for the Astros, who had won five straight postseason games dating to Game 7 of the 2017 Series. "We came here and won a game, and they played well tonight," Houston third baseman Alex Bregman said. "It's going to be a fun series, so we're looking forward to going back home." Price was spotted a two-run lead in the first inning and then fell behind 4-2 before Bradley clanged one off the left-field wall that Gonzalez chased helplessly as it bounced back toward the infield. Price left leading 5-4 with two on with two out in the fifth before Matt Barnes struck out Gonzalez to end the inning and then pitched a perfect sixth to earn the victory. Ryan Brasier pitched a scoreless inning and erstwhile starter Rick Porcello set the Astros down 1-2-3 in the eighth. Closer Craig Kimbrel gave up Jose Altuve's RBI single with two outs in the ninth before Bregman launched a high fly to left that Andrew Benintendi caught a step in front of the Monster. "I knew I missed it," Bregman said. "If I got it, it would have been on the street behind Fenway Park." Gerrit Cole, who was so dominant in his Division Series start against Cleveland, gave up a double to Mookie Betts — the first batter of the game — as Boston sent eight batters to the plate in the first and scored twice. The AL West champs tied it in the second on George Springer's two-run double down the right-field line. And when Gonzalez cleared the Monster — and the seats above them — with a two-run homer in the third, it looked like Price was headed for another loss (he has won two postseason games in relief.) But Boston, which won the AL East and a franchise-record 108 games, came back in the bottom half, starting with Xander Bogaerts' one-out single and then a double by Steve Pearce that sent Gonzalez crashing back-first into the metal scoreboard on the left-field wall. He fell to the warning track, but after the training staff and manger AJ Hinch went out to check on him he stayed in the game. "The ball, the wall, he's back-pedaling. He's got to make a decision on whether or not to concede the wall and try to play it off the wall or try to make a catch," Hinch said. "It's a well-placed hit." Cole walked Devers on four pitches to load the bases and struck out Ian Kinsler on three before Bradley lofted one down the left-field line and off the Monster. As the ball bounced back toward the infield, it hopped on the padding along the side wall, just out of Gonzalez's reach. "Not really catching a break with it rolling on this awkward piece of padding all the way down was unfortunate," Cole said. "But you put yourself in that position." Betts scored an insurance run in the seventh, walking to lead off the inning and coming around to make it 6-4 on a wild pitch and a pair of passed balls. He gave Boston a 7-4 lead with an RBI double in the eighth. PRICE IS RIGHT In all, Price was charged with four runs on five hits and four walks, striking out four in 4 2/3 innings Price's teams had lost all 10 of his previous postseason starts, the longest such losing streak in baseball history. He allowed three runs and got just five outs in Game 2 against the Yankees, the only Red Sox loss in the series. As Price left the field on this night, the crowd rose to applaud the pitcher they booed off the mound in the Division Series, and he tapped the brim of his cap. "It's definitely appreciated," Price said. "It wasn't the line I dreamed up to have tonight. But our offense, our defense, everybody rallied together." SALE OUT The Red Sox said Game 1 starter Chris Sale was hospitalized with a stomach illness but Cora said he was still hoping the he would join the team in Houston. "He was feeling bad and he's at the hospital," Cora said. "From what I know, it's nothing serious. But obviously whenever you have to go to the hospital you've got to be 'worried.'" Cora said it did not affect his performance in the series opener, which Houston won 7-2 . HOMER HAPPY It was Houston's 14th straight postseason game with a homer, breaking the major league record that had been held by the Astros from 2001-04. UP NEXT Dallas Keuchel, who was 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA in the regular season, will start Game 3 for Houston. He allowed two runs in five innings in the Game 3 clincher against Cleveland. With Porcello pitching in relief on Sunday, the Red Sox are expected to start Nathan Eovaldi on Tuesday. He was 6-7 with a 3.81 ERA in the regular season and allowed one run in five innings for the win against the Yankees in Game 3 of the ALDS — his first career postseason appearance......»»

Rajo Laurel’s collection: Why the audience should get his story

  When Rajo Laurel presents his 110-piece collection in the Red Charity Gala Ball on Oct. 27, the audience, unfortunately, may not readily see the big story.   The story in this always much-awaited annual spectacle ---the show is as much off the ramp as on it, because the guests simply "out-ball gown" each other---lies beneath the drama that is a fashion show. Since the show usually starts past 11 p.m., after the auction, you hope the audience will keep their eyes wide open for the craft and design of the collection.   (The Red Charity Gala producers Tessa Prieto-Valdes and Kaye Tiga remain unsurpassed in staging record-breaking benefit auctions.) &nb...Keep on reading: Rajo Laurel’s collection: Why the audience should get his story.....»»

Rico’s Lechon of Cebu opens second Manila branch

  Every time I am in Cebu, I visit chef Raki Orbina's restaurants Caf Laguna, Parilla and Lemon Grass. I also visit Tymad Bistro of chef Philippe Estienne where the food takes me back to my Paris days on the Left Bank. His kouign-amann (Breton cake) is to die for.   Another must-visit is Rico's Lechon owned by Enrico Dionson. I love the lechon so much I was glad to learn it was now available at Bonifacio Global City (BGC).   For one of our "Foodprints" shows, we were given a freshly cooked lechon straight from their pit. I usually try to eat healthy and will only eat a tiny piece of skin and ribs but this was the first time I had eaten so much lechon in ...Keep on reading: Rico’s Lechon of Cebu opens second Manila branch.....»»
