Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 7, 2015 at 7:18 pm Contact Jon: firstname.lastname@example.org | @jmettus COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Taylor Poplawski cut toward the cage and rifled a shot into the back of the net. The Syracuse bench erupted with cheers and the players on the field rushed together.But as Syracuse celebrated, a referee stood just a few feet away, waving her hands over her head and blowing her whistle.Poplawski thought she had just tied the game at 8-8 with over 20 minutes to play in the second half, but the goal was called off because of an illegal stick.“When they called it off — the whistle — my heart sunk,” Poplawski said. “It just, it sucks.”The Orange had only scored three goals in the first half. But coming out of the break, SU attack Kayla Treanor scored three-straight goals to lead SU on a 4-1 run that brought the team back into the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter Poplawski’s goal was waved off, though, the Orange couldn’t find the back of the net again. No. 1 Maryland (5-0) instead seized the momentum that SU just had and defeated the No. 5 Orange (5-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast), 10-7, in front of 1,506 in College Park, Maryland on Saturday afternoon.“We played young, but we had a lot of heart,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “I like the way Treanor stepped up in the second half to get us back into it.”In the first half, Syracuse’s players were constantly sent sprinting toward the sideline to save bad passes from going out of bounds and retreating back on defense after a turnover in the offensive zone. After the first 30 minutes, the Terrapins led, 7-3.“Inopportune turnovers, chances to take over the game and we turn the ball over,” Gait said. “Chances to make a run and you turn the ball over.”When the team walked back onto the field to start the second half, Gait had shed his blue Syracuse jacket. His squad looked different, too.Just a minute and half in, Treanor scored from about 8 meters away. Less than a minute later, it was Treanor again.She backed down her defender with her right shoulder toward the goal and shot behind her back with her left hand.“We were down so we needed to push the ball and get some goals on the board,” Treanor said. “… I knew my backside was open so I just tried to shoot it.”The players on SU’s sideline bowed in unison. Even Gait cracked a small smile.But when Poplawski’s goal was called off, the momentum that Syracuse was carrying vanished. Maryland’s Taylor Cummings immediately went the other way and scored.On SU’s next possession, Treanor spun and dodged, but couldn’t get an open shot from the right side of the net.She tried to make another move, but a second Maryland defender ran over and collided with Treanor, sending her to the turf and her stick flying.As Treanor slowly got up, her knees bloodied, Cummings scored again.Maryland head coach Cathy Reese ran down the sideline holding two celebratory clenched fists in the air. Gait still stood pointing to where Treanor had been laying on the ground.Syracuse was frustrated. Minutes earlier the Orange thought it tied the game, but now was down, 10-7. With five minutes left, Gait earned a yellow card for arguing with the referee.“I was just asking about the ratio of calls for one team versus the other and that was it,” Gait said.For the rest of the game, Maryland ran out the clock.Syracuse defender Caroline Grosso walked away from the Syracuse bench and, with her hands on her hips, began kicking the snow behind the Syracuse bench. With 21 seconds still on the clock, the rest of the players on SU’s sideline started packing up their gear.“Obviously we don’t feel too good because we lost, but we know what we have to do in order to win,” Poplawski said. “If we see Maryland again, they’ve definitely got one thing coming to them.” Comments
Written By Associated Press Television News LIVE TV The Washington Nationals’ bullpen halted a Miami Marlins rally, retiring all seven batters it faced in a 5-4 victory on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader.Kyle Finnegan (1-0) struck out Jorge Alfaro to escape a two-out, bases-loaded jam he inherited from starter Max Scherzer in the fifth to earn his first major league win. Tanner Rainey pitched a 1-2-3 sixth, and Daniel Hudson earned his sixth save with a perfect seventh.While Scherzer labored for much of his outing, Miami didn’t manage anything until Jonathan Villar’s RBI single in the fifth and Matt Joyce’s homer a batter later. Scherzer allowed the next four hitters to reach and was finally chased when Jesus Sanchez walked with the bases loaded.Scherzer surrendered four runs while throwing 108 pitches in 4 2/3 innings. It was the third time in six starts the three-time Cy Young Award winner allowed at least four runs.“I believe in tough spots in the game, even when the pitch count is above 100, I can excel in those situations,” Scherzer said. “Unfortunately, the past couple games I haven’t done that and I need to get better at that.”Miami starter Daniel Castano (0-2) got only one out against four batters, allowing two runs. The Nationals increased the lead to 3-0 on Howie Kendrick’s sacrifice fly in the third.The Marlins’ defensive sloppiness helped Washington score twice in the fourth. Kurt Suzuki and Josh Harrison opened the inning with consecutive singles, and Sanchez, a rookie, sailed a throw from right field well past third to allow Suzuki to score. Two batters later, Harrison scored when left fielder Corey Dickerson dropped Victor Robles’ fly ball.The Nationals played as the home team in the regularly scheduled opener. The Marlins will serve as the home team in nightcap, which was originally part of a July 31-Aug. 2 series in Miami postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak that led to injured list stints for 17 Marlins players.TRAINER’S ROOMMarlins: LHP Caleb Smith and RHP Jose Urena both had throwing sessions Saturday at Miami’s alternate training site.Nationals: RHP Stephen Strasburg (0-1, 10.80 ERA) was transferred to the 60-day injured list, effectively ending his season. Strasburg, the World Series MVP last year, was limited to two starts and will undergo carpal tunnel surgery next week. … Manager Dave Martinez said LHP Sean Doolittle (right knee) will throw to hitters at the team’s alternate training site Sunday. … INF Howie Kendrick (hamstring) was the DH, his first time in the lineup since Aug. 14.29th MENWashington will add RHP Wil Crowe to start the second game and make his major league debut. Crowe was the Nationals’ second-round pick in the 2017 draft. … Miami brought up RHP Jesus Tinoco as its 29th man. Tinoco threw two scoreless innings in the opener.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Humberto Mejia (0-1, 5.68 ERA) faces a team other than the Mets for the first time in his brief major league career when the series continues Sunday.Nationals: RHP Anibal Sanchez (0-3, 8.50) has allowed 39 baserunners (29 hits, nine walks, one hit batsman) over 18 innings in his first four starts of 2020.Image credits: AP COMMENT FOLLOW US WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 23rd August, 2020 06:44 IST Last Updated: 23rd August, 2020 06:44 IST Nationals Outlast Marlins 5-4 In Opener Of Doubleheader The Washington Nationals’ bullpen halted a Miami Marlins rally, retiring all seven batters it faced in a 5-4 victory on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader
Written By FOLLOW US COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV First Published: 30th August, 2020 07:07 IST Yu Darvish scattered seven hits over six innings, Anthony Rizzo homered twice and the Chicago Cubs snapped a three-game skid with a 3-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday.Darvish (6-1) allowed two runners past second base and won his sixth straight decision. He walked two and struck out eight to outpitch Cincinnati’s ace, Trevor Bauer.“It was big for sure,” Darvish said of beating Bauer. “He’s amazing this year. I was thinking before the game, ‘I can’t give them more than two runs.’”The Reds loaded the bases with two outs in the fifth, but Darvish got Freddy Galvis to ground out weakly to third baseman Nico Hoerner. Cincinnati’s three-game winning streak ended.Rizzo lofted a 1-2 pitch into the first row of seats down the right-field line for his seventh homer of the season and a 2-0 lead. He led off the sixth by clubbing a 1-2 pitch deep to right for his third homer in the last two games, giving him eight on the season.Rizzo’s homers were the first allowed by Bauer to any current Cub. Bauer (3-2) needed a season-high 112 pitches to get through a season-low 5 1/3 innings and lost his second consecutive start, allowing four hits and three runs with two walks and five strikeouts.Bauer missed his spot on Rizzo’s second blast.“I was trying to go down and in with that and it just hung in the zone,” Bauer said. “If you leave it in the zone, that’s one of his power spots, as you saw. The one before that was the third change-up I’ve thrown this year. He couldn’t have been looking for it. I executed it. He was just better than me on that pitch. He floated it out.”Cubs manager David Ross said his team had plenty of quality at-bats.“I think it’s just a product of when you have a plan and looking for your pitch and (when) the pitch is not in that zone, being able to take that and not pull the trigger,” Ross said. “Taking pitches is just a product of your plan. That’s really all it is. It’s not, ‘Oh, we’re going to go up here and see how many pitches we can see.’”Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with a double.
