innings for Baltimore
« : febrero 26, 2019, 10:15:14 pm »
Jiri Sekac was a hot commodity this summer. There were over a dozen NHL and KHL teams interested in signing the 22-year-old free agent from the Czech Republic. His goal was always to play in the NHL, but after having difficulty cracking the line-up in the OHL and USHL, he returned to Europe mainly playing in the KHL. The Canadiens invited Sekac to Montreal last May to show him around and he liked what he saw. "It was just a gut feeling, I wanted to be a part of the Montreal Canadiens" Sekac explained as the reason why he chose Montreal. Tomas Plekanec has taken on a mentorship type of role with Sekac, theyre both from Kladno of the Czech Republic, but only briefly knew each other from playing roller hockey together one summer. The two have gotten to know each other better in the past few months and Sekac has been very grateful for the guidance Plekanec has given him since arriving in Montreal. "Hes been showing me around the city and helping me out in the locker room" Sekac said. So far at training camp Michel Therrien has placed the two Czech players together on a line with Sven Andrighetto. "We want to give him an opportunity to feel comfortable as quick as he can and putting him with Plekanec we think is the best thing for him" the head coach told the media. The Canadiens are hoping that the six-foot-three Sekac can fill the empty right wing spot left behind from Brian Gionta. Plekanec has been impressed with the play of his linemate and feels Sekac could be ready to be a full time NHL player. "Its up to the management and coaches but as a player you can see hes pretty much ready, he knows what he is doing out there" Plekanec told reporters. Deion Sanders Jersey . Top-seeded Djokovic swept to a 6-1, 6-3 win over 51st-ranked Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain in just 57 minutes, but fourth-seeded Federer had to see off a serious challenge from 48th-ranked Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic before coming through 6-2, 6-7 (4), 6-3. Phil Niekro Jersey . -- The Los Angeles Clippers chose not to speak publicly about owner Donald Sterling before they faced the Golden State Warriors for Game 4 of their first-round series Sunday. http://www.thebravesteamshop.com/Braves-Jose-Ramirez-Kids-Jersey/ . The Boston Celtics hadnt played since the All-Star break. So the Suns 100-94 victory over Boston Wednesday night was an uphill affair, with Phoenix relying on balance rather than its trademark high energy. Kurt Suzuki Jersey . The biggest shock of this seasons competition was on when Watford took a 2-0 lead after 30 minutes at Etihad Stadium, only for a remarkable Aguero-led comeback by City in the final half-hour. The Argentina striker produced clinical finishes in the 60th and 79th minutes to level the score before Aleksandar Kolarov put City in front in the 87th. Bobby Cox Jersey . Dalton completed his only pass and led the Bengals to a touchdown in his only drive -- one that took four minutes to finish -- and the Cincinnati Bengals ended the preseason with a 27-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night.BALTIMORE - Steve Lombardozzi tripled and scored on a single by David Lough in the 12th inning, giving the Baltimore Orioles a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night. Toronto trailed 1-0 with two outs in the ninth when Colby Rasmus hit a solo homer off Tommy Hunter on a 1-2 pitch. After nearly going around on a check swing one pitch earlier, Rasmus drove a 98 mph fastball into the right-field seats. In the 12th, Lombardozzi hit a one-out drive to centre off Todd Redmond (0-1) before Lough sliced an opposite-field liner to left. As soon as Lombardozzi crossed the plate, the Orioles sprinted from the dugout to embrace Lough, who scored Baltimores other run five innings earlier. Zach Britton (2-0) got the win with two hitless innings of relief. It was the second straight low-scoring affair between two AL East foes known for their offensive prowess. On Friday night, Toronto scored two unearned runs in a 2-0 victory In this one, neither starter allowed a run and neither got a victory for the effort. Bud Norris gave up five hits and three walks over seven innings for Baltimore and was poised to earn his first win of the season before Rasmus connected in the ninth. Drew Hutchison handcuffed the Orioles on four hits over six innings, walking two and striking out five. After Hutchison left, the Orioles struck in the seventh against right-hander Neil Wagner. Lough singled with two outs before rookie Jonathan Schoop, the No. 9 hitter, lined a 3-2 pitch into the alley in right-centre for an RBI double. Evan Meek protected the lead in the eighth, but Hunter gave it away for his firsst blown save in four tries this season.dddddddddddd The game featured the first replay challenge at Camden Yards. In the fourth inning, Lombardozzi reached on a grounder when umpire Chris Conroy ruled that a throw from Hutchison pulled first baseman Edwin Encarnacion off the bag. Toronto manager John Gibbons challenged the call, and after a delay of 2 minutes, 38 seconds, the decision stood. Lough followed by hitting into an inning-ending double play. Both teams threatened in the third. Toronto put runners at the corners with one out before Maicer Izturis hit a short flyball and Jose Bautista struck out. In the bottom half, Hutchison struck out Chris Davis and Adam Jones after giving up successive one-out singles to Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz.
