Hockey tryout with Carolinas affilia
« เมื่อ: กันยายน 25, 2018, 10:23:58 AM »
TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have come close to falling out of first place in the American League East thanks to a recent slide. An excellent start from Drew Hutchison and the return of Jose Bautista helped provide a little breathing room in the divisional race while ending a three-game losing skid at the same time. Hutchison struck out a season-high 10 batters and Bautista belted one of two Toronto homers as the Blue Jays defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 in front of a sellout crowd on Canada Day at Rogers Centre. The Toronto right-hander was dominant early on, retiring the first 14 batters he faced. Three relievers combined on the four-hitter as the Blue Jays moved 1 1/2 games ahead of second-place Baltimore. "When hes on, hes on," Toronto manager John Gibbons said of his starter. "He can be really, really good." The Orioles were scheduled to play the Texas Rangers later Tuesday. Bautista, meanwhile, gave his team an early lead with a no-doubt blast off Marco Estrada (7-5) that hit the facing of the second deck. It was the first start for the Toronto slugger since he strained his left hamstring on June 22. Colby Rasmus hit a solo shot in the fifth inning for the Blue Jays (46-39), who added some late insurance with a two-run eighth inning. Hutchison improved to 6-6 with his sixth quality start of the season. "A dynamite fastball and a good breaking ball," Gibbons said. "He got lots of strikeouts. Theyre a very aggressive hitting team over there so he got a lot of strikeouts up in the zone. But his fastball had a little extra life." The Toronto skipper showed his faith in Hutchison by leaving him out there after loading the bases in the seventh. He got out of the jam when Jean Segura lined out to right field. "I want to be in there in those situations," Hutchison said. "I believe in myself to make a pitch to get out of that so to have that (confidence) from (Gibbons), it was nice to be able to have that and then get out of it." Aaron Loup, Dustin McGowan and Casey Janssen completed the four-hitter. Janssen worked the ninth inning for his 13th save. "We didnt get a lot of hits," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "A lot of strikeouts, not a lot of hits." Bautista was the designated hitter and he returned to his No. 3 position in the lineup for his first start in nine days. He got the crowd of 45,088 into the game early by turning on a 3-2 pitch for his 16th homer of the year. "Hes a pretty good hitter," Gibbons said. "Were not quite the (same) team without him, thats for sure." Hutchison already had eight strikeouts before Khris Davis reached on an infield single in the fifth to become Baltimores first baserunner. Davis hit a ground ball up the middle that Jose Reyes did well to retrieve. The shortstop was forced to make a hurried off-balance throw that pulled Edwin Encarnacion off the bag at first base. Rasmus made it a two-run game in the bottom of the frame. He turned on an 0-1 pitch for his 12th homer of the year. Milwaukee (51-34) halved the lead in the sixth inning. Leadoff man Scooter Gennett reached on a flare to left field and Ryan Braun drove him in with a double into the right-field corner. Estrada was pulled for southpaw sidearmer Zach Duke after giving up a walk to Encarnacion and a single to Dioner Navarro in the bottom of the seventh. Duke retired the next three Blue Jays in order to keep it a one-run game. Loup hit the lone batter he faced, putting pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks on to open the eighth. McGowan came on and got Braun to hit into a 4-6-3 double play. McGowan walked Jonathan Lucroy and then fanned Carlos Gomez with a 96 mile-per-hour heater. In the eighth, Melky Cabrera drove in a run with a triple and scored on an Encarnacion double. "We played (well) today on an important day for us to win a game -- it seems like its been a while," Gibbons said. "Its Canada Day in front of a nice crowd. You dont want to lay an egg on that day. So it was a good day for us." Hutchison allowed three hits, one earned run and walked a pair. He threw 66 of his 105 pitches for strikes. "He was our win," said Rasmus. "Everything revolves around the starting pitcher. He came in and did a good job, kept them off balance, kept the ball up in the zone and kept them swinging and missing. He did a great job." Estrada gave up six hits, two earned runs and a walk while striking out two. Notes: The game took two hours 56 minutes to play. ... Blue Jays wore their red and white jerseys for Canada Day. ...

The Blue Jays are now 13-23 in Canada Day games. Kenny Golladay Jersey . To be fair, the celebrations are already anything but tame. Nerf ball tricks shots are just the tip of the iceberg for a group that has performed in zero gravity, faced pro-skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and an assembled team on the MTV series "Fantasy Factory", and even hit a basketball trick shot from a passing blimp. Christian Jones Jersey . Kevin Durant certainly played like there was on Sunday night, scoring 36 points and grabbing 10 rebounds as the Thunder made quick work of the visiting Pacers with a 118-94 win. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Calvin-Johnson-Draft-Jersey/. That further limits the options of Australia coach Ewen McKenzie, who on Monday suspended six players who were involved in a night out in Dublin ahead of the Saturdays 32-15 win over the Irish. The Wallabies play Scotland on Saturday before facing Wales on Nov. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Anthony-Zettel-Draft-Jersey/ . As the only competitor to try two quads, much less complete them, Kovtun ended the day nearly nine points ahead of Japans Tatsuki Machida, who opened with a clean quad but then stepped out of the triple toe loop that was the second jump in his combination. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Graham-Glasgow-Draft-Jersey/ . -- When the Los Angeles Kings are on top of their formidable defensive game, they revel in the silence they can create in a frustrated road arena. VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella has a lot of admiration for his backup goalie. Fans at Rogers Arena finally got to see Eddie Lack for themselves. The 25-year-old Swedish rookie didnt disappoint in his first-ever home appearance Monday, backstopping Vancouver with 31 saves for his first NHL shutout as the Canucks downed the Carolina Hurricanes 2-0. With No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo getting the night off, Lack continued his steady play in helping Vancouver to a fifth straight win. "The thing I like most about Eddie is just his presence. I think he settles the team down," said Tortorella. "Theres not a lot of extra movement in his game. "He doesnt get rattled." Lack usually plays the second game of back-to-backs in place of Luongo and got the nod with Mondays contest coming on the heels of Sundays 3-1 home victory over the Colorado Avalanche. He was solid, if not spectacular, on a night where the Canucks kept the Hurricanes to the outside. "The guys did an unbelievable job," said Lack. "I wouldnt say that I was nervous. It was more excitement." And most importantly after his fourth win of the campaign, he has the confidence of his head coach. "I hope it continues. As a coach youre looking at the present but youre also looking at the future, too, as you go through a long year with a condensed schedule that we have with the Olympics," said Tortorella. "Huge game for him tonight. First home game for him -- I thought he handled himself tremendously." Christopher Tanev and Jannik Hansen, into an empty net, scored for Vancouver (18-10-5), while Chris Higgins added two assists. Tanev and Lack were roommates in the American Hockey League before making the jump to the NHL, so it was only fitting the former provided the game winner for the latters first career shutout. "Im happy for him," said Tanev. "Ive known him for four years now. Hes an awesome guy and its an incredible moment for him." Justin Peters made 24 stops for Carolina (13-13-5), which saw its three-game winning streak snapped. "I think as a team we deserved a better fate," said Peters. "We played the right way, we had some chances, just give credit to their team. Lack was playing well." With Vancouver nursing a 1-0 lead after Tanev opened the scoring in the first period, Lack made two glove saves early in the third, including a hot shot off the stick of Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe. Ryan Kesler had a chance to stretch Vancouvers lead a few moments later, but fired wide on a 2-on-1 with Mike Santorelli. Carolina made a push in the dying minutes, with Hurricanes captain Eric Staal comiing the closest, but Lack was there to the shut the door before Hansen scored into an empty net.dddddddddddd "I thought we were coming on," said Carolina head coach Kirk Muller. "You have to fight for your opportunities and in the second we got going and the third we got a lot of juice but they are not giving up a lot of chances." Lacks last start came in the Canucks 3-2 victory over the Hurricanes in Raleigh, N.C., on Dec. 1 and he watched as Vancouver gave him a 1-0 lead early in the first on Monday night. Tanev collected a feed from fellow defenceman Dan Hamhuis and fired a snapshot from the point that found its way through traffic past Peters at 3:35 for his second of the season. Hamhuis then jumped into the rush with Canucks shorthanded, but fired wide of Peters goal. Then with Vancouver still down a man, Peters was forced to make a pad stop on Kesler, two more saves on Hamhuis and then another on Henrik Sedin as the Canucks No. 1-ranked penalty killing unit buzzed around the Hurricanes zone. The visitors started to find their legs in the second period, but found it difficult to get much going against the tight-checking Canucks. In one of the few moments of action, Lack was forced to come up big off the rush, stopping Riley Nash and Patrick Dwyer in quick succession. "I think it was just as boring a game to play as it was to watch," said Kesler. "Those are the games we have to win, though. They didnt give us much and we didnt give them much and Eddie made the saves when he had to." Former Canucks forward Manny Malhotra played in Vancouver for the first time as a the member of the Hurricanes. The Canucks shut Malhotra down after nine games last season, saying they were concerned for the 33-year-olds health following a serious eye injury during the 2010-11 season. Malhotra got an American League Hockey tryout with Carolinas affiliate this season before getting called up to the big club. He made his debut Nov. 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. "Its obviously disappointing we didnt get the result we wanted," said Malhotra, who spent three season with Vancouver. "We felt we carried the play for most of the game, we were effective getting puck in deep, getting sustained pressure on them, but Lack saw a lot of pucks tonight. We need to do a better job being in the goalies eyes and battling in front of their net." Notes: The Canucks dont play again until Friday when they welcome the Edmonton Oilers. Vancouver then hosts Boston on Saturday night. It will mark the Bruins first visit to Rogers Arena since their victory in Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup final. ... Carolina plays at Edmonton on Tuesday.
