A clinical run-chase from the Trinbago Knight Riders propelled them past Guyana Amazon Warriors and into the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Final at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad last night.. Chasing a competitive score of 159 an 85-run partnership between Colin Munro and Darren Bravo made a difficult chase look easy. The Knight Riders will play St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Final on Saturday.(Scores:Trinbago Knight Riders 160-4 (Munro 57*, Bravo 42, Rashid 1-23) beat Guyana Amazon Warriors 159-6 (Gajanand 39, Walton 37, Narine 2-21) by six wicketsThe Knight Riders innings got off to a terrible start when Sunil Narine was dismissed first ball – his fourth duck of the season – trapped lbw by an in-swinging yorker from Tanvir.The Knight Riders promoted Hamza Tariq to bat at number three, but he could only manage 10 off 13 before being caught behind off Rayad Emrit. Thanks largely to Munro—who was fortunate to be dropped twice—the Knight Riders reached 42 for 2 after six overs.The field dropping back did not dissuade Munro and Bravo’s from being aggressive. In a wonderful display of counter-attacking batting the pair slashed the required run rate from 8.28 to 6.46 by the time Bravo was eventually dismissed, caught on the boundary.Munro had been the aggressor in the Powerplay but with Bravo he played a supporting role as his partner’s muscular power cleared the ropes four times. It was indicative of the nature of the partnership that Bravo dared to take on Rashid Khan and he twice hit leg side sixes, alleviating pressure right at the moment when Amazon Warriors wanted to apply it the most.Darren Bravo being dismissed brought his elder brother to the crease and Dwayne Bravo ate further into the target with a six and a four before also being dismissed.Such was the aggression of their chase that the quick wickets did not build any pressure. Munro finished with a steady 57 not out off 51 balls and the Knight Riders reached the target with an impressive 12 balls to spare.Earlier in the evening, after being put into bat by the Knight Riders, the Amazon Warriors explosive top three of Sohail Tanvir, Chadwick Walton and Luke Ronchi were kept unusually quiet in the Powerplay. The Knight Riders bowled five different bowlers in the first five overs of the innings which didn’t allow the batsmen to settle.At the end of the Powerplay the Amazon Warriors were 33 for 1 with Tanvir the man dismissed, trapped lbw by Narine.It took brilliant two balls to dismiss the two key batsmen Walton and Ronchi. First a wicked in-swinging and dipping yorker from Dwayne Bravo uprooted Ronchi’s leg stump and then a drifting knuckle ball beat Walton’s outside edge and caused him to over-balance with Dinesh Ramdin whipping off the bails. When Jason Mohammad slapped a wide slower ball from Javon Searles to cover the Amazon Warriors were 92 for 4 with just 5.5 overs remaining in the innings.It was then that Gajanand Singh and Roshon Primus combined to transform the momentum of the match. Gajanand got things going by striking consecutive leg side sixes off Bravo in the sixteenth over before Primus took the penultimate over from Dan Christian for 21 – carving three boundaries over cover and heaving a slower ball for six over mid-wicket.Gajanand took 12 from the first three balls of the last over bowled by Ronsford Beaton before two wickets in two balls ended a match-changing partnership of 65 off just 33 balls. The Amazon Warriors scored 65 off their last five overs to move from 94 for 4 to 159 for 6. Despite the late surge their total was not enough for the Knight Riders who batted brilliantly.Upcoming FixtureSaturday: Final, Trinbago Knight Riders v St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Tarouba, 21.00hrs

COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 5th August, 2020 10:03 IST Germán Márquez struck out nine in efficiently throwing into the eighth inning and benefited from an overturned home-run call as the rolling Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 5-2 on Tuesday night.The Rockies moved to 8-2 for the second time in franchise history, joining a 2011 team that finished 73-89.“There’s a good vibe going on with us,” said slugger Nolan Arenado, who homered for a second straight game. “The pitchers are setting the tone.”Trailing 3-0 in the fifth, the Giants thought they tied it on a three-run homer by Steven Duggar that hit off the top of the wall. A crew chief review overturned the call and awarded Duggar a two-run double. Márquez struck out Mike Yastrzemski and got Alex Dickerson to fly out to keep it a 3-2 game.Márquez (2-1) scattered six hits over 7 1/3 innings and threw 101 pitches. This was a vastly improved outing compared to his last start against the Giants on July 15, 2019. In that game, the hard-throwing Márquez surrendered 11 runs over 2 2/3 innings during a 19-2 loss.“I thought he was in control of the game, I really did,” Rockies manager Bud Black said.Yency Almonte got five outs, including two double plays, to pick up his first career save.Arenado connected on a liner in the sixth that just crept over the wall. It was his 30th career homer against the Giants, the most all-time among Rockies hitter. His prodigious numbers led San Francisco manager Gabe Kapler to label Arenado a “Giant killer” before the game.Arenado’s at a loss to explain his success.“When I first came up, it was daunting going in there. … There’s always motivation,” Arenado said of facing the Giants. “I’m happy I’m doing it. Hopefully I can continue. I really don’t have answers.”Same goes for the pitching, where the starters now have a combined ERA of 2.44. Marquez was just the latest to shine with his blazing fastball, sharp slider and knuckle-curve.“He’s in a different category when it comes to his stuff,” Arenado said.Marquez and Almonte kept the Giants inside the park — barely — to end San Francisco’s streak of homering in 13 straight games at Coors Field. The string dated back to Sept. 3, 2018.The fielding woes of the Giants continued with three more errors, including one on Tyler Heineman for catcher’s interference. It brings their total to 16 this season. They’ve committed multiple errors in six of their 12 games.San Francisco starter and Denver native Kevin Gausman (0-1) threw 5 1/3 innings and allowed four runs in his first appearance at Coors Field. He struck out seven.“Hard to believe seven years in the majors this is the first time I pitched here,” Gausman said. “I looked up for a second and looked at the seats where I used to sit (high seats above the bullpen). Lots of cool memories.”AROUND THE DIAMONDRockies DH Matt Kemp drove in a run with a fielder’s choice. He has at least one RBI in all five of his starts. … OF David Dahl had a triple to open the game for Colorado. … Giants DH Pablo Sandoval ended an 0-for-14 hitless streak with a second-inning single.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: LHP Drew Smyly (sprained left index finger) will stay in San Francisco for physical therapy. He won’t throw for at least a week. … RHP Trevor Cahill (right index fingernail) is scheduled to throw a simulated game in Sacramento at the end of the week. … The Giants are targeting a simulated game for INF Yolmer Sánchez this weekend. … RHP Sam Coonrod (lat strain) may soon start a throwing program.UP NEXTColorado RHP Jon Gray (0-0, 2.61 ERA) searches for his first win of the season when he takes the mound Wednesday for Game 3 of the four-game series against San Francisco.

Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter As the Angels head toward the first workout of spring training on Feb. 13, we are providing breakdowns of how they stand with their roster by position group. Players acquired this winter include the method of their acquisition in parentheses. This week, the bullpen. (Previously: the rotation.)2018 RECAPThe Angels took a lot of heat last season for the performance of their bullpen, which converted only 57 percent of their save situations. It was one of the worst rates in the majors. That number was misleading, however, because 10 of their 26 blown saves came in the sixth or seventh innings. Also, they still won nine of the 25 games in which they had a blown save. Overall the relievers were about average. Their 3.92 ERA was 13th best in the majors. Their 1.337 WHIP was 15th. The relievers were asked to pitch the fourth-most innings in the majors, which was likely part of the problem. Keynan Middleton had just begun to emerge as a closer before he went down with Tommy John surgery. Otherwise, Blake Parker handled most of the ninth-inning duties, before giving way to midseason acquisitions Hansel Robles and Ty Buttrey down the stretch. Rookie Justin Anderson also showed flashes of late-inning potential. José Álvarez had his best season.HOW IT LOOKS RIGHT NOWThe Angels start the season with an established closer, thanks to the addition of Cody Allen (free agent). Allen had been the Cleveland Indians’ closer for five of his six full seasons, and he’d been outstanding until showing some cracks in 2018. His ERA rose from 2.59 over the previous five years to 4.70 in 2018. General Manager Billy Eppler believes it was something of a small-sample size fluke, combined with a mechanical issue the Angels believe is correctable. With Allen in the ninth, the Angels have a variety of pitchers they can use to get him the ball, starting with Buttrey and Robles. They also have Anderson, and they swapped Álvarez for Luis Garcia (trade with Phillies). Buttrey, Robles, Anderson, Garcia and Middleton, who is expected back around midseason, all can throw in the mid-90s to 100 mph. Cam Bedrosian has lost some velocity in recent years, but he’s also at times looked like a back-end reliever, so he’ll get another chance to see where he fits in the bullpen. The Angels’ only left-handed relief candidate is Williams Jerez, who arrived with Buttrey in last year’s Ian Kinsler trade. They also will have Noé Ramírez back, and he’s out of options. He and Taylor Cole, who has options, could compete for long relief duty.THE NEXT LAYERJohn Curtiss (trade with Twins) fits the mold of the other high-velocity arms in the Angels bullpen, although he may end up spending time in Triple-A and waiting for an opportunity. Jeremy Rhoades enjoyed a breakthrough season in the minors last year, combining for a 2.54 ERA at Double-A and Triple-A. Jake Jewell also figures to be waiting in the wings at Triple-A, after recovering from surgery resulting from a broken leg suffered covering the plate in his brief stint in the majors. MOVES THEY COULD MAKEThe Angels don’t have an established lefty in their bullpen and the Giants have two – Will Smith and Tony Watson – available. Reports of the Angels’ talks with the Giants up until now have been exaggerated, but if the Giants become motivated to move either player as spring training nears, perhaps the price might be right for the Angels.Related Articles Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield
HONOLULU >> Well before anyone else stepped on the court, Kobe Bryant entered the gym and performed something that has defined his 19-year NBA career. He shot the basketball.Bryant performed that routine by himself for an hour before the Lakers began training camp Tuesday afternoon at the Stan Sheriff Center, marking his first practice since needing season-ending surgery on his right shoulder nine months ago.“That’s where the tough shots — the overtime shots and fourth-quarter shots that he makes comes from,” Lakers rookie guard D’Angelo Russell said. “He might be fooling us all with the sling on his shoulder.”Lakers coach Byron Scott maintained Bryant’s pre-practice shooting session “did not bother me one bit” even if the Lakers’ star has nursed season-ending injuries in three consecutive seasons. That’s because Bryant skipped portions of the Lakers’ sprinting and team shooting drills. Then, Bryant sat on a trainer’s table icing his shoulder and receiving massage therapy, a routine he says he will likely follow throughout the 2015-16 season. Scott has not decided whether Bryant will play in the Lakers’ preseason opener against Utah here on Sunday, let alone how many minutes he will play in the 2015-16 season. But Scott sounded more inclined to rest Bryant for discomfort he feels, no matter how small. “It’ll probably make me think about it,” Scott said. “It’s in the back of my mind. If this is indeed his last year, I want him to go out standing and out his way. I don’t want him to be injured.” Neither does Bryant, though he strongly defended Scott’s wrongdoing on handling his body. “When you keep getting the same questions asked over and over, at some point, you start questioning yourself,” Bryant said. “It’s not that big of a deal. Last year with the minutes that I played, I still felt pretty good. None of us knew I was playing with a torn shoulder all season long.”Since then, Bryant maintains he “felt pretty good” all offseason. He did not have any overseas procedures as he has done in past summers “because I didn’t really need to.” Yet, Bryant foreshadowed a conservative workload through the Lakers’ month-long training camp that includes eight exhibitions. “I’ll try to play as many games as possible,” Bryant said. “But I don’t expect to play a whole heck of a lot.”As for the regular season, Bryant suggested he will try to play all 82 games.“It’s my job to approach it with playoff intensity and playoff focus,” he said. “I’m sure it’s limited and things of that nature, but it’s my responsibility to step out and play.”All of which Bryant believes he can accomplish unlike in past seasons after scanning the roster.“We have some guys who can really take a load off me with D’Angelo and (Jordan) Clarkson and their ability to handle and create and make plays and Julius (Randle) making plays,” Bryant said. “The minutes I do play won’t be as heavy as they have been in the past.” “We’re being smart,” Bryant said. “I’m in great condition. I can run all day. It’s just not a matter of doing it in practice. You don’t want to beat yourself up in practice.”The Lakers did not open practice to reporters until Bryant was already receiving treatment, leaving the franchise to offer their own positive assessment. Scott said Bryant “looked great” and admitted he felt “surprised on how great his conditioning was.” Russell reported that Bryant “looked good” and conceded, “I didn’t think he’d go through the whole practice knowing it’s his first one back.”After all, Bryant has played in only 41 games in the past two years amid overlapping injuries to his left Achilles tendon, left knee and right shoulder. Bryant’s latter injury still eats at Scott, who has felt partly responsible for his star player lasting only 35 games in the 2014-15 season. Bryant averaged 34.5 minutes per game and sat in eight of his final 16 games for rest purposes before tearing the labrum in his right shoulder. “It creeps in my mind every now and then,” Scott said. “When it creeps into my mind, I tell myself, ‘You’re not going to make that same mistake this year.’”Hence, Bryant participated in about 10-15 minutes devoted to each 20-minute drill in a practice that lasted just over three hours. Scott also plans to sit Bryant out in one of the Lakers’ two-a-day practice sessions scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Which session Bryant plays in depends which one Scott plans to schedule for a scrimmage. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
