I knew if I could just hit it right I could hold the bottom better. I knew where to enter and where to come off.” Braaksma passed veteran Bob Moore on the 18th of 25 laps, then led the defending track champion through lapped traffic and across the finish line. The win paid $1,500 and put Braaksma on the ballot for the upcoming Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.

first_imgWest Ham withstood a barrage of second-half pressure to condemn Manchester City to their first defeat of the Barclays Premier League season. It was another notable away victory for Slaven Bilic’s West Ham after securing wins at Arsenal and Liverpool already this season. City won their first five Premier League games of the season – and a club record 11 in succession – but, coming after a Champions League loss in midweek, they made a sluggish start. Their day started badly as playmaker David Silva was injured in the warm-up and had to be replaced by Jesus Navas. City had an early chance when Adrian punched away a Fernandinho header from a De Bruyne corner but any hopes the hosts had of taking charge were quickly dashed as the defence was caught out. Manuel Pellegrini had been forced to change his back four for the first time this season because of injury to captain Vincent Kompany and the reshaped rearguard afforded Moses too much space. The on-loan Chelsea forward raced towards the area and unleashed a fierce low shot from distance to claim his first goal for the club. City were laboured in response with their only bright sparks coming from De Bruyne, and his pass almost led to an equaliser as an Aaron Cresswell interception fell to Sergio Aguero. Aguero seized possession and jinked around Adrian but the Argentinian screwed his shot wide. Press Association Goals from Victor Moses and Diafra Sakho got the Hammers off to a flying start at the Etihad Stadium and they held on for a 2-1 win after Kevin de Bruyne pulled one back. City dominated after the break and created a series of chances but Hammers goalkeeper Adrian was in outstanding form and refused to be beaten. The Hammers doubled their lead after more poor defending at a corner just after the half hour. City missed opportunities to clear as Winston Reid nodded down and Pedro Obiang tapped the ball back across goal. Sakho reacted the quickest to stab home from close range. Sakho might have had another after racing onto a Dimitri Payet ball but Eliaquim Mangala made a vital tackle. City showed some signs of life with Navas teeing up Aguero but Adrian saved from close range. They replied just before the interval as Aguero laid off for De Bruyne and the £54million man drove the ball low into the bottom corner from the edge of the box. City won a series of corners as they upped the pressure after the break and Yaya Toure had three chances to claim an equaliser in quick succession. The Ivorian was first crowded out after combining well with Raheem Sterling, then forced Adrian to save and then shot across goal. Adrian also denied Aguero and Navas and then did well to cut out a Sterling pass across the box after more good work by De Bruyne. Toure had another effort deflected wide and Aleksandar Kolarov had a penalty appeal turned down after tangling with Sakho. City threw forwards Wilfried Bony and Kelechi Iehanacho on during the second half and continued to press, with Otamendi testing Adrian with a header from a corner. But it proved to no avail as the Hammers held on to blow apart City’s 100 per cent record. TWEET OF THE MATCH: “@JKCorden: Come on West Ham! You’ve got this!!!!!” – Comedian and West Ham fan James Corden nervously watches on during the second half. PLAYER RATINGS Manchester City Joe Hart: 6 (out of 10) Bacary Sagna: 5 Nicolas Otamendi: 6 Eliaquim Mangala: 4 Aleksandar Kolarov: 6 Fernandinho: 6 Yaya Toure: 6 Raheem Sterling: 5 Jesus Navas: 5 Kevin de Bruyne: 8 Sergio Aguero: 6 Substitutes: Martin Demichelis: 6 Wilfried Bony: 5 Kelechi Iheanacho: 5 West Ham: Adrian: 8 Carl Jenkinson: 7 Winston Reid: 7 James Tomkins: 7 Aaron Cresswell: 6 Pedro Obiang: 7 Mark Noble: 7 Dimitri Payet: 8 Victor Moses: 8 Manuel Lanzini: 7 Diafra Sakho: 7 Substitutes: Michail Antonio: 6 Nikica Jelavic: 5 James Collins: 5 STAR MAN: Kevin de Bruyne: City may have lost, but the Belgian was by the best player on the pitch. The £54million signing showed no sign of nerves on his full debut, causing West Ham problems with his vision and trickery on the edge of the box. He took his goal superbly well, too. MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Diafra Sakho’s goal: The Etihad Stadium was stunned into silence as West Ham opened up a two-goal advantage on the hosts. Victor Moses’ goal was a better strike, but City’s failure to clear a routine corner exposed just how disorganised they were without Vincent Kompany. West Ham players were lining up in the box to tap it in. In the end Sakho did the honours. VIEW FROM THE BENCH: Slaven Bilic had already beaten Arsenal and Liverpool on the road by playing a counter-attacking style so it came as no surprise that he did the same at the Etihad Stadium. The Croatian’s decision to play five across the midfield paid off. Yaya Toure’s influence was negated while Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini defended well and had the energy to break as soon as the visitors had the ball. Manuel Pellegrini’s options were hindered by an injury to David Silva in the warm-up. Jesus Navas came into the team and played poorly, but with Samir Nasri injured, Pellegrini had no other option. MOAN OF THE MATCH: West Ham’s time-wasting: Right from the moment the first goal went in, the Hammers tried to force the referee to stop the match on numerous occasions. It is part of the game, but West Ham pushed it to the extreme, which annoyed City and their fans. WHO’S UP NEXT Sunderland v Man City (Capital One Cup, Tuesday September 22) Leicester v West Ham (Capital One Cup, Tuesday September 22) Following the match, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini refused to blame the pre-match loss of David Silva, telling Sky Sports: “No excuse about that. “We have other players. If he cannot play another player must do it. We had lot of chances to score. We played after conceding, so we were playing against goals, against time. That’s why we played too fast (rushed). “We conceded two easy goals. We must be more concentrated because we know that this team is danger in those kinds of balls. After that we tried, second half lots of attempts. But we didn’t score.” Meanwhile, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic said: “This was much, much more harder (than the wins over Arsenal and Liverpool). “In the second half City created… they pressed us, they were the better team to be fair. If they had equalised it would also have been deserved. “At the end of the day, we also created a couple of chances in the second half, a great one from Sakho. “We deserved it because first of all we scored two goals, first half we played really good and second half we were fighting as a unit, from the goalkeeper to striker.” last_img read more

first_img“Many people came to see him,” Paris said after the early victory.12:55 p.m.Tiny dogs are having their day at the Westminster Kennel Club show.Pomeranians, papillons and other toy dogs are in the rings Monday, as are terriers and the diverse category of dogs known as “non-sporting” breeds. They range from Dalmatians, bulldogs and poodles to less familiar breeds such as the löwchen, Norwegian lundehund and Xoloitzcuintli — that’s “shoh-loh-eetz-KWEENT’-lee,” a hairless breed from Mexico. Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditNEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the Westminster Kennel Club dog show (all times local):3:45 p.m.A rock star as usual, Bono is heading back Madison Square Garden. 1:25 p.m.Thor the star bulldog has taken his first winning steps at the Westminster Kennel Club show.Thor has quite a following after more than 25 million viewers saw him win the National Dog Show televised on Thanksgiving Day.With the crowd cheering him around the ring this time, the sturdy 2-year-old born in Peru earned a best of breed ribbon. He advanced to the nonsporting group judging Monday night at Madison Square Garden.Handler Eduardo Paris appreciated the audience support. Associated Press The Latest: Bono the Havanese a rock star once again February 10, 2020center_img Backstretch the bulldog took in the scene as she waited to compete. Just 12 weeks after having a litter of puppies, she was back in competitive shape and ready to show off with owner and handler Valery Scrimo of Saratoga Springs, New York. Backstretch did fine, too, winning a ribbon for excellence. Daytime judging chooses the best dog in each breed. Those winners begin facing off Monday night at Madison Square Garden, where best in show will be named Tuesday night.___12:25 p.m. The Havanese named after U2’s frontman won best in breed at the Westminster Kennel Club show Monday. Immediately after, he was swarmed by dog show judges-in-training eager to inspect the superb example of the national dog of Cuba.“On top of his conformation being so on point with the breed specification, he has the joie de vivre attitude,” handler Taffe McFadden said. “He loves it. He is in it.”Bono was rated the No. 1 show dog in the country last year, but he’s yet to fetch the top prize at the circuit’s two most heralded shows. Bono was runner-up at Westminster last year to King, a wire fox terrier, and also finished second to Thor the bulldog at the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving Day. Thor is among the favorites this year at Westminster, and won his best in breed earlier in the day.Bono’s next step is the best-in-group competition Monday night at Madison Square Garden. If he wins the toy group, another showdown with Thor could be on deck.“Step one,” McFadden said. “Let’s get on that Garden stage again. Let’s see.” What makes a championship obedience dog? The Westminster Kennel Club knows it by Heart. A Labrador retriever named Heart won Westminster’s obedience contest Sunday, extending her sweep of the five-year-old competition.With that, handler Linda Brennan says they don’t plan to enter the contest next year. “I think it’s only fair” to step aside, said Brennan, an obedience trainer from Columbia, New Jersey. The competition requires dogs to sit, stay, retrieve a toy on command and stick by their handlers’ sides while walking around other people, among other skills. Finalists used to do complex six-minute routines of their own devising, but Westminster changed things up this year to align more closely with other obedience trials. Heart, age 7, executed the maneuvers with her tail wagging.“She loves this environment — she really does. She finds it very exciting and very stimulating,” Brennan said. Don’t lose heart, owners of everyday dogs: Even Heart misbehaves from time to time outside the ring.“She has her little naughty habits,” Brennan said with a smile.,Update on the latest sports,Update on the latest sportslast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 6, 2014 at 12:10 am There have been false alarms for Syracuse this season. But none like this. None this loud.In the Orange’s 28-6 loss to Louisville on Friday night, the Carrier Dome touchdown horn sounded off twice in three plays. The Orange didn’t score on either of them.The first was a pass from running back Prince-Tyson Gulley to wide receiver Ben Lewis, which Lewis caught in the end zone and celebrated before right tackle Omari Palmer was flagged as an illegal man downfield. The second was an end-around wide receiver pass from Jarrod West to a wide-open Lewis, which Lewis missed before staring at the ground in disbelief.Each horn added a punctuation mark to an unfinished sentence — two reminders that Syracuse’s offense, at present, can’t even hang in games.“It’s like working all week and not getting your paycheck,” SU offensive coordinator George McDonald said of those missed opportunities. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) didn’t earn a payday, but there were factors aside from miscommunication and lack of execution that led to the 22-point loss.First, H-back Brisly Estime, top target Ashton Broyld and right tackle Ivan Foy all sat with injuries. Louisville’s run defense came in as the best in the country and held the Orange to a season-low 59 yards on the ground. Finally, Terrel Hunt didn’t look 100 percent after being banged up against Notre Dame then having to leave the game after he was injured on a hit in the fourth.But the loss still looked something like this: SU’s offense scored six points on two field goals and gave up four points on two safeties — the first of which came on a shotgun toss to Adonis Ameen-Moore that sent him into the end zone. The Carrier Dome was essentially empty when the game clock finally ran out.The offense didn’t execute, the defense bent then finally broke and nothing in Syracuse’s play or postgame assessment of it showed that the execution problems are going to subside. If anything is certain after five games, it’s that Syracuse isn’t ready to compete for wins in the ACC this year.“I think there’s a huge misconception of what toughness is. Toughness isn’t just the physicality of it,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said after the loss. “Toughness is the ability to get your mind in a very nice place where you can execute better and find that balance. That’s toughness.“Being soft is not having the fortitude to be able to say to yourself, ‘I’ve got to stop thinking about the negatives.’”The injuries and the opponents that Syracuse could hardly control were only compounded by the mistakes it could have.“If they score six points, we have to hold the other team to five,” junior cornerback Julian Whigham said when asked if the lack of finishing frustrated the defense. It’s almost an impossible reality to win in, much like eliminating enough of these errors before No. 1 Florida State visits the Dome on Saturday is a tall, tall order. Some mistakes can be fixed in preparation. Like running on third-and-10 only to lose 2 yards, checking to a toss on your own goal line only to give up a safety and telegraphing an interception a play after the defense got you the ball.Then there’s not knowing how many timeouts are left at the end of the first half, moving backward instead of forward in the red zone and otherwise playing with an offense that nearly outscored itself in 60 minutes of play. No amount of defense, toughness or time in the film room can heal those kinds of wounds.“It’s tough because when you’re not finishing, it’s not necessarily a function of the scheme. We got to continue to look at it,” McDonald said.And while Syracuse looks at that, it’s hard not to look at the coming weeks and see a season that is all too close to being defined. The Seminoles are next, then Wake Forest and Clemson on the road.Add in Hunt’s uncertain status. Add doubts about Broyld, Estime, Foy and third cornerback Wayne Morgan’s health, too. Then add fake touchdown horns and it all really starts to sting. Commentslast_img read more

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — The light banks at Dodger Stadium went dark in the second inning on Monday. The underlying electrical issue was resolved and the field eventually brightened enough for play to resume.For the Dodgers, the power never came back on.The Dodgers were limited to five hits by the Milwaukee Brewers in a 5-2 loss before the announced crowd of 44,933 in attendance for Manny Machado’s home debut.The Dodgers had a runner on base in each of the first seven innings. Other than Machado, who walked and scored on a Max Muncy triple in the third inning, then hit a home run in the ninth, nobody scored. Eleven runners were stranded in all as the Dodgers lost their second consecutive game.

His home run against Corey Knebel in the ninth inning, a moonshot to straight-away center field, was his second in 11 games since joining the Dodgers. A brief chant of “Man-ny, Man-ny” erupted in the crowd, but such moments were rare in the opener of a seven-game homestand.“I should have hit that a couple innings before when I had runners in scoring position to tie the game up,” Machado said of his home run. “A little late for that one.”It wasn’t all Machado’s fault.Chris Taylor struck out with the bases loaded to end the third inning, lined out with a man on base to end the fifth, and popped out with runners on first and second base to end the seventh inning.Chase Utley led off the second inning with a ground-rule double, Yasiel Puig walked and pitcher Kenta Maeda bunted both runners up a base. But Joc Pederson popped out and Machado struck out looking to kill that threat.center_img “They stressed him early,” Roberts said of Maeda. “He really had to make pitches. … In the fourth inning, the velocity started to go down.”Maeda finally reached the end of his rope in the fifth. Dylan Floro, recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City earlier in the day, was summoned from the bullpen to put out a fire with runners on first and third and two outs. He got Piña to ground out, ending the inning.Milwaukee padded its lead in the eighth inning against Dodgers pitcher Pedro Baez. Center fielder Cody Bellinger misplayed a long fly ball off the wall by Piña into a triple. Jesus Aguilar dumped a single into shallow right field, scoring Piña. It was the second run Baez has allowed in three innings since returning from the disabled list.Daniel Hudson (one inning), Scott Alexander (one inning) and Floro (1-1/3 innings) did not allow a run in relief.The stadium was more than half-empty by the time Machado launched his 26th homer of the season into the well-lit stratosphere. Back in a quiet clubhouse, in his first interview at his locker, Machado was in no more a mood to celebrate than the fans making their way out of the parking lot.“We’re here to win games,” he said. “Come out with a loss like that, it’s not fun.” The Dodgers struck out 13 times against Milwaukee starter Freddy Peralta and four relievers.“One piece is getting guys on base,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “I love the at-bats. I really did. Guys taking walks, and we got to Peralta, got his pitch count up. … (The Brewers) went to their ’pen early. We just couldn’t come up with that big hit.”Maeda made his shortest start since June 19 in Chicago. The right-hander allowed seven hits, including five singles, over 4-2/3 innings. He walked three batters and struck out four.“I just felt like I didn’t have my stuff today,” Maeda said through his interpreter.The right-hander painted himself into a dangerous corner in the first inning. The Brewers loaded the bases on a double by Christian Yelich, a walk by Mike Moustakas and a single by Lorenzo Cain.Travis Shaw dumped a single into shallow right field, scoring Yelich with the game’s first run. The Brewers didn’t score again, but they made Maeda work. Ryan Braun struck out at the end of a seven-pitch at-bat. Eric Thames popped out on the sixth pitch he saw. Maeda needed eight pitches to retire Manny Piña on a flyout and threw 34 pitches in the inning.At least Maeda had ample time to recover. As he warmed up to pitch the second inning, a power outage reduced the available lighting to a glimmer of setting sun. Both teams vacated the field for the better part of 23 minutes.According to a statement released by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, one of the two circuits supplying power to Dodger Stadium experienced a disruption at approximately 7:44 p.m. An automated switch automatically re-routed the power, and a crew was dispatched to make repairs as needed after the game.Maeda said he had never waited through a mid-game delay for darkness, but he didn’t feel it affected his pitching for the worse. When play resumed, he was more efficient. He retired the next five batters in a row.But with two outs in the third inning, Maeda walked Shaw. Braun singled. Thames swung and missed at a curveball in the dirt, then launched a fastball 405 feet into left-center field for a three-run home run.
