Short named SEC Co-Pitcher of the week after impressive outings vs. MSU

first_imgWyatt ShortWyatt ShortOXFORD – A pair of saves and a win during a sweep of in-state rival Mississippi State over the weekend has earned Wyatt Short SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week honors, the league announced on Monday. The Ole Miss sophomore helped the Rebels secure its first sweep of the Bulldogs since 2010 by pitching one scoreless inning in each game without allowing a hit. He retired nine of the 10 batters he faced throughout the weekend and striking out four of them.Short shares the honor with Vanderbilt’s Carson Fulmer, who pitched a shutout against Florida. “It feels great. I wasn’t expecting that,” Short said. “I’ve never (pitched three days in a row) before. But I was ready.”The left-hander earned the win in Ole Miss’ improbably comeback on Saturday, as the Rebels faced a 7-2 deficit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and rallied to win in extra innings. “Everything was working for me,” Short said. “Which is a first. Normally I don’t have my curveball or changeup or something. I had everything this weekend. It felt good.”Ole Miss baseball sophomore Wyatt Short has been named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week, the conference office announced Monday, May 11. The left-handed reliever earns the accolade for the first time in career after a stellar weekend against rival Mississippi State.This season, Short leads Ole Miss relievers with four wins and nine saves. Seven of his nine saves have been in SEC play, which sits atop the conference ranks.Shorts owns a 1.56 ERA and has struck out 39 hitters over 34.2 innings. He has not allowed a run to score in 17 of his 20 appearances. Short is the third Rebel to earn a weekly award this season. Scott Weathersby was named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week on April 13 and Will Golsan collected SEC Freshman of the Week honors on March 23.last_img read more

Green house to go. Fireworks sales back on the agenda.

first_imgThe Regional Planning Commission meeting started at 3:00PM on Monday in full swing with all in attendance but one.   Chairman Joe Bolinger read the resignation letter of Secretary Sherry Shope towards the beginning of the meeting. The letter was received on July 3rd, and Shope thanked the planning commission for the opportunities she was afforded during her time on the committee.Firework sales within the City of La Follette were discussed again. Codes Officer Daniel Smith stated again that fireworks would bring an increase in tax revenue. Both tent and permanent structure sales were brought up as well as which zones would be allowed to sell. This topic was to be discussed at the workshop for the City Council set Monday evening.Several board members for the Habitat for Humanity attended the meeting in hopes of an approval on a variance request involving property located at the intersection of South Cumberland Avenue and East Fir Street.The “Green” house will go the way of the wrecking ball.With approval of the variance and the purchase of what was referred to as the “Green” house (as pictured), the Habitat for Humanity would be able to build four houses instead of two. These houses would be 25 foot wide and 10 foot apart according to Jerry Herod, a spokesperson from the Habitat for Humanities.This would involve demolition of the “Green” house which Mark Hoskins voiced should be condemned anyway. David Stout of the Habitat for Humanities stated that it could be a win-win situation for the City.The request passed as Mark Hoskins made the motion, and it was seconded by Mayor Mike Stanfield.

Proposed Cristiano Ronaldo to Barcelona?

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Juventus. His agent Jorge Mendes is looking for a new team of the Portuguese star. This is what the authoritative Spanish journalist Guillaume Balage claims. He explained that the Bianconeri are willing to sell Ronaldo to part with his huge salary.“The reason for Cristiano Ronaldo to be associated with PSG is not because the French club is thinking about attracting him, but because Jorge Mendes has been instructed to find a new team for Ronaldo. It is offered everywhere, including Barcelona. I’m not sure they can get rid of him easily because of the money he gets. Who is willing to pay such a sum? Balage told the BBC.Stoichkov: There are much better players than Cristiano Ronaldo“Paulo Dybala, for example!”last_img

Liverpool win Super Cup after penalty shootout

first_imgISTANBUL,  (Reuters) – Champions League winners Liverpool won the Super Cup 5-4 on penalties against Chelsea after the game ended 2-2 following extra-time yesterday. With the first nine penalties all converted, Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham saw his effort blocked by the legs of Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian to hand victory to Juergen Klopp’s side in the annual clash between Champions League and Europa League winners.It was a memorable moment for the Spanish goalkeeper who only joined the club nine days ago and found himself thrust into the side following the injury to first-choice Alisson Becker in the Premier League opener against Norwich City on Friday.“Welcome to Liverpool! It’s been a crazy week,” said the former West Ham `keeper, signed as a free agent. “I’m really happy for the team, I’m happy to play for Liverpool and happy for the fans. It was a long game but in the end a great finish for us,” he said.Liverpool, who beat Tottenham Hotspur in June’s Champions League final, have now won the trophy on four occasions while Chelsea have lost their last three appearances in the match.While the Super Cup does not carry anywhere near the prestige of either of UEFA’s two season-long competitions, the first ever all-English affair was a good quality encounter played in hot, muggy conditions. Chelsea went ahead in the 36th minute when N’Golo Kante drove from midfield and found Christian Pulisic, who turned inside and delivered the perfect through ball for Olivier Giroud to confidently slot home.American Pulisic then beat Adrian with a fine shot after a swift run down the flank but the effort was ruled out for offside.Liverpool manager Klopp introduced Brazilian Roberto Firmino at the break and he had an instant impact, poking the ball past the advancing Kepa Arrizabalaga and Sadio Mane tapped into the unguarded goal to make it 1-1 in the 49th minute. Arrizabalaga then produced a superb double save in the 75th minute to deny Mohamed Salah’s deflected low drive and the Spanish `keeper did superbly to get back up and push Virgil van Dijk’s follow up against the bar.Mason Mount had another Chelsea effort ruled out for offside leaving the teams level after 90 minutes and forcing extra-time, past midnight local time, and Liverpool struck after just five minutes with Mane driving home after an excellent exchange with Firmino.But six minutes later, Chelsea were back on level terms with a Jorginho penalty after Abraham was brought down in the box by Liverpool `keeper Adrian and French referee Stephanie Frappart, the first woman to officiate a major men’s European final, pointed to the spot. Frank Lampard’s side went close to winning the game with Mount forcing a good save out of Adrian and then Pedro driving just wide — but with the scores level after 120 minutes the game went into the shootout.Although Chelsea ended the game in defeat, Lampard, who took over as manager in July following the departure of Maurizio Sarri, will be encouraged by a positive display after his side lost their opening Premier League game 4-0 at Old Trafford.last_img

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Gayle-Storm!

first_imgAfter surging to four consecutive wins this season in the HERO Caribbean Premier League, the Guyana Amazon Warriors will want to extend that dominance to five when they take on Jamaica Tallawahs in their own backyard from 20.00 hours tonight. The Sabina Park affair will mark the 17th time these two sides would have clashed and Warriors hold a small advantage, winning nine times. At the venue, Warriors have won three of the five matches between the two teams but with both teams on a winning course, they are both confident.However in the past, Tallawahs, who have just one win from five matches this season have shown their pedigree to come through in important matches as they defeated the Warriors in the 2013 and 2016 finals.Notwithstanding the absence of Andre Russell, heading into the contest both teams will be brimming with confidence, particularly Tallawahs who secured their first win in their most recent match. It will be interesting to see who leads the side tonight with Gayle, Rovman Powell and Chadwick Walton assuming that responsibility this season.Chris Gayle is the only player with over 13000 runs in the format.Walton, a former Warrior, said that the Tallawahs will not change the way they approach cricket but was critical about the team’s execution as they aim to qualify for the playoffs.When asked at the pre-match conference about the concerns with catches going down under the lights, Walton defended his men by stating, “We had a few chances going down and I don’t think it is a result of the players’ capabilities.” Despite dwelling at the bottom-of-the-table, their batsmen have three of the top five run-scorers this season. Gayle is the only batsman so far to smash a century and leads the chart with 205 runs while Walton (166 runs) and Glen Phillips (162 runs) are not too far behind.Contrastingly, it is their bowling that let them down. Trinbago Knight Riders scored 267-2 against them, the largest total in franchise cricket while St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots completed the second highest successful chase, reaching 242-6 in 18.5 overs.Their seamers have not been effective and quite expensive. Jerome Taylor is yet to pick up a wicket in his 14 overs at an economy rate of 12.29. Oshane Thomas has been costly with an economy rate of 11.31 but has taken the most wickets for his side with seven. Powell, Steven Jacobs, Russell and Derval Green all have economy rates of more than 11.Chandrapaul Hemraj will look to continue his dominant form.Former Warriors captain and now Tallawahs’ Assistant Coach, Ramnaresh Sarwan, admitted at the pre-match conference that the bowling has been an issue and with Russell still going through his concussion tests as well as Shamar Springer going through testing, the final XI isn’t decided.However, Sarwan said that with the inclusion of two overseas bowlers in Jade Dernbach and Zahir Khan, the team is hopeful that they can boost that department. Unlike the Tallawahs, Guyana Amazon Warriors’  Ben Laughlin and Odean Smith, who bowled one over, are the only bowlers with  economy rates higher than nine runs per over. Each bowler has contributed in at least one match with Romario Shepherd leading the way with seven wickets.Leg-spinners, Imran Tahir and Qais Ahmad have already made their  impact in the one match they have each played, taking five wickets collectively and will no doubt provide support to Chris Green, Shoaib Malik, Keemo Paul and Chandrapaul Hemraj.Head Coach of the Warriors, Johan Botha, pointed out that there was no hurt in bringing in two overseas spinners but stated that in Jamaica they will have to assess the conditions first before deciding on which attack to use.Hemraj, though being used as an opening bowler on a few occasions, has consistently given Warriors good starts along with Brandon King. The pair, along with Shimron Hetmyer are the three leading scorers for the four-time runners-up. With the top three pulling their team into decent positions and the anchor role by Malik, their finishers have cashed in with Nicholas Pooran and Sherfane Rutherford striking at 164 and 200 respectively.Botha during the pre-match conference explained: “We respect Jamaica as a team, we know they are a really good team and for us we need to turn up again…our aim is to be a consistent team and we have to be really good again tomorrow night [tonight] if we want to compete with this Jamaica team.”last_img read more

Man Utd equal Prem record for most penalties in a season with dodgy Bruno spot kick which VAR chiefs admit was a mistake

first_img REAL vs FAKE GOLD Funny animals make you happy and laugh funny animal compilation MANCHESTER UNITED equalled a Premier League record following Bruno Fernandes’ controversial penalty against Aston Villa.The Portuguese midfielder swept home a first-half spot-kick after he was deemed to have been brought down by Ezri Konsa.The penalty was United’s 13th of the season – equalling the Premier League record for spot-kicks awarded in a single campaign.The Red Devils have now drawn level with the Crystal Palace team of 2004/05 and Leicester City’s title-winning side from 2015/16.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men still have four matches remaining this season to break the record.Yet controversy reigned around their latest spot-kick after replays appeared to show Fernandes was the one who committed the foul.The 25-year-old then punished the relegation-threatened hosts by scoring from 12 yards at Villa Park, before United ran out 3-0 winners. The Premier League later confirmed that referee Jon Moss was wrong to award the penalty and that VAR Graham Scott should have overruled the decision.The decision compounded Villa’s relegation fears and boss Dean Smith blasted the officials after the match.He said: “It all turned around on the penalty decision.“I can understand Jon Moss getting it wrong but that goes to VAR, I don’t know what they are looking at. It’s a disgraceful decision. I can’t really tell you what I think about it as I’ll get fined. It’s a poor decision. They’ve got a screen they can go to and look at but they don’t seem to be bothered now.“Anybody who has been in football knows Fernandes is trying to do a drag back. His first foot is on the ball and his second is on Konsa’s shin.“I thought he was going to give a foul the other way.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Man United ‘could have scored 3,4,5 more’ vs Aston Villa but heaps praise on goalscorer Mason Greenwood Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 What’s This “Trick” Called?
