first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco After Muncy walked on four pitches, Sanchez went to 3-and-0 on A.J. Pollock. Pollock swung at the fourth pitch and bounced it back to Sanchez who threw home for a forceout. Corey Seager was ahead in the count 3-and-1 when he bounced a grounder to first baseman Howie Kendrick to end the inning.That was it until the eighth inning. Sanchez and reliever Javy Guerra retired 22 Dodgers in order into the eighth inning.“That’s what he does. That’s what he always does,” Justin Turner said of Sanchez. “He mixes throwing five pitches if you count the Eephus (a 67-mph curveball that struck out Corey Seager in the fourth). Just moves the ball around, living on the edges, getting some weak contact or some balls that are hit hard but guys are standing there. Next thing you know he’s through seven innings.”The game went into the eighth tied at 1-1 thanks to Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (who lowered his MLB-best ERA to 1.74) and Alex Verdugo. Verdugo made a sliding play at the foul line on Adam Eaton’s fly ball to start the sixth inning then threw out the potential go-ahead run in the seventh when Gerardo Parra tried to score from second on a single.“That’s a leadoff double with (Anthony) Rendon coming up. That could have impacted the game,” Roberts said of the first play. “Then the throw home, that’s a difference in the game.”So was Pederson’s at-bat against a left-hander.With the game tied in the eighth, Nationals manager Davey Martinez brought in lefty reliever Tony Sipp, the obvious move against Pederson with the Dodgers’ bench limited. Kiké Hernandez had an MRI on Friday afternoon after injuring his left hand or wrist in Wednesday’s game and was not available to hit. Roberts did have Will Smith and newly-acquired Tyler White, both right-handed, but he didn’t want to use them in a two-out, none-on situation.“The leverage right there in that spot, to use a guy to score a run – which we ultimately did … typically odds are against that,” Roberts said.Related Articles PreviousWASHINGTON, DC – JULY 26: Kenley Jansen #74 of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates after a 4-2 victory against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on July 26, 2019 in Washington, DC.

(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)ExpandWASHINGTON — When Cody Bellinger drove Joc Pederson in with a one-out RBI single in the first inning off Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez on Friday night, it was greeted with the usual clapping and modest high-fives in the Dodgers dugout.Maybe they should have savored it a little more.The Dodgers didn’t have another hit until the eighth inning when Justin Turner’s three-run home run broke a tie and lifted them to a 4-2 victory over the Washington Nationals.The game wasn’t secured until the Dodgers endured another shaky outing by closer Kenley Jansen who threw 34 pitches to get the final three outs, barely half of them (18) strikes. Handed a three-run lead, Jansen got the first two outs efficiently enough. But then he put the tying runs on base by giving up a single, hitting a batter and walking another – with an intentional balk mixed in. He walked Juan Soto to force in a run before finally striking out Howie Kendrick to end the game.“He was one strike away from having a clean inning,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after the game, clearly bothered by Jansen’s erratic finish. “After the two-strike base hit off the bat of (Trea) Turner, the wheels came off, really, quite frankly. He’s a guy who’s always had command. … He just really couldn’t find it. Tonight wasn’t a good night.”For most of it, Roberts had other reasons to reach for the antacids.Three of the first four Dodgers batters had singles, a run scoring on Bellinger’s third in line, and Max Muncy drew a walk to load the bases with one out against Sanchez.They did more than just let him off the hook at that point. They walked him back to his corner and set him up with a cool drink and some popcorn. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start So Roberts left Pederson in for only his 34th plate appearance against a left-handed pitcher this season. Precious few of those plate appearances had ended with a base hit (six) and none had ended in a walk – until Friday.Pederson swung just once, fouling off a slider to fall behind in the count 1-and-2. But he took the next three, including a full-count slider off the plate for a walk.“It’s a good lefty. I don’t get to face them all the time,” Pederson said. “Just did my best to help the team win.”Verdugo has fared much better against left-handers and stroked a single off Sipp. Martinez again made the right move – theoretically – and went to right-hander Kyle Barraclough to face Turner and defuse the smoldering two-out rally. After a wild pitch advanced the runners, first base was open. But Barraclough continued to pitch to Turner, leaving a 3-and-1 fastball up over the plate and paying for it.“It’s a nice luxury having No. 35 (Bellinger) hitting behind you,” Turner said. “I was looking for a pitch up in the zone and I got just enough of it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

first_imgThe Killybegs School of Tourism is to be relocated to the LYIT campus on a phased basis.The decision was taken after a meeting of the LYIT Governing Body meeting held earlier today.The move will be a huge blow to the local economy in the fishing port. The decision was made in the wake of the LYIT having its core funding cut by 43% in the past 3 years.The Governing Body approved the Institute’s three Year Financial Plan which was requested by the Higher Education Authority (HEA).This plan was requested in the context of the overall financial stability of the Institute.LYIT has had its core funding cut by 43% in the last 5 years with a commensurate reduction of over 70 staff. The Institute has projected an average on-going operating deficit of €1.9 m per annum over the coming years.In the context of the sustainability of the Institute as a whole, the stated objective of the Institute’s Executive is to retain autonomy in decision making and to address the Institute’s financial deficit.Given that 75% of the projected deficit is attributable to the School of Tourism, Killybegs the Financial Plan addresses three options for the future of the School of Tourism.The first option was to continue current operations in Killybegs, the second was to cease School of Tourism activities in LYIT and the third option was to  move School of Tourism to Letterkenny on a phased basis.Option 1, given the current funding model for Institutes of Technology, is not a viable option unless the HEA makes additional funding available. Option 3 is the option on which the Financial Plan is based, subject to capital funding being made available from the HEA.Option 2 will only be considered in the context of neither options 1 nor 3 being available to the Institute.The Governing Body said it is acutely aware of its responsibilities to the Institute and to the wider region and has approved the Executive’s Financial Plan in this context.“The Governing Body also understands and appreciates the difficulties currently being faced in south west Donegal through representations from various community groups and individuals. “In this regard, the Governing Body proposes the establishment of a forum comprising of Institute and Killybegs community representatives to engage with and keep the community appraised of on-going developments with the HEA.“As previously stated, staff, current and prospective students can be assured that there will be no impact on the intake on School of Tourism programmes for the academic year 2013/14,” said a statement.The Financial Plan will be submitted to the HEA tomorrow, 21 June 2013.KILLYBEGS SCHOOL OF TOURISM TO BE RELOCATED TO LYIT was last modified: June 20th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:LYITSchool of Tourismlast_img read more
