Late, late show: Dodgers beat Red Sox in longest World Series game

The right-hander retired his final 14 batters before leaving after 108 pitches. He allowed two hits, struck out seven and didn’t walk anyone.“He’s got an overt confidence, a quiet confidence, a little combo,” Roberts said. “But he’s got tremendous stuff, and he lives for moments like this.”Boston starter Rick Porcello gave up one run and three hits in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked one.Alex Wood threw a hitless inning for the win.ALL NIGHT LONGPreviously, the longest postseason game by time was San Francisco’s 18-inning win over Washington that took 6 hours, 23 minutes, during the 2014 NL Division Series. The only other playoff game to last 18 innings was Houston’s victory over Atlanta in the 2005 NLDS.STREAK STOPPERSThe Red Sox had won six straight games, starting in the ALCS. They had been 5-0 on the road this postseason.UP NEXTRed Sox: Cora hadn’t decided on a Game 4 starter. MOST READ View comments Cora used starter David Price in relief, rotated his outfielders in the middle of innings and even put catcher Christian Vazquez at first base for the first time in his big league career.Out of position players, Roberts called on ace Clayton Kershaw to pinch-hit in the 17th. He flied out.The stadium organist was busy, too, launching into “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” in the 14th inning — a second version of the seventh-inning stretch. Not many had left by then.The crowd cheered when the stadium clock struck midnight.“What a ballgame. What a marathon,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “Unbelievable fight from our club.”“I think my beard got about 3 inches longer.”The Dodgers snacked on peanut butter and banana sandwiches whipped up by a team employee, and hung a bag of bananas over the dugout railing to change their luck.“We were well-fueled,” Kershaw said.Game 4 is later Saturday at Dodger Stadium. Eovaldi had been scheduled to start for the Red Sox, but he threw 97 pitches over six-plus innings in relief as one of nine pitchers they used. The Dodgers backtracked on Rich Hill and said they would announce a starter later.“I’m a little tired, but we’re ready to come back tomorrow,” Los Angles slugger Yasiel Puig said, looking at his watch and adding, “in a couple of hours.” Los Angeles Dodgers’ Max Muncy celebrates his walk off home run against the Boston Red Sox during the 18th inning in Game 3 of the World Series baseball game on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018, in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)LOS ANGELES — Exhausted yet exhilarated, the Dodgers headed home for a catnap. The Red Sox may well toss and turn thinking about one that got away.Max Muncy’s home run leading off the bottom of the 18th inning finally ended the longest World Series game in history early Saturday and gave Los Angeles a 3-2 victory over Boston that drew the Dodgers to 2-1 in the best-of-seven matchup.ADVERTISEMENT Evoking memories of Kirk Gibson’s winning pinch-hit homer in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, Muncy came within feet of ending it in the bottom of the 15th. But his shot to right sailed just foul and he ended up striking out.“I really thought I had it,” Muncy said. “That was kind of defeating at that point, but I was able to get back and get another shot.”The battle of attrition had a bit of everything: 46 players, including 18 pitchers, and 561 pitches. Never before had a Series game gone more than 14 innings.Two games in one, really. And a fall classic, indeed.“It was a must-win for us. Our guys just persevered,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.How long did they play? Put it this way: The game took 15 minutes more than the entire 1939 World Series when the Yankees swept Cincinnati, STATS said.Long after rookie Walker Buehler dazzled over seven shutout innings for the Dodgers, things got interesting.The Red Sox tied it 1-all in the eighth on a homer by Jackie Bradley Jr. and took a 2-1 lead in the 13th.Los Angeles answered with the tying run in the bottom of the inning.After Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger made the throw of his life in the 10th, both teams scored on bizarre errors in the 13th. Dodgers: After the game, the team said its starter would be announced later. Left-hander Rich Hill had been set to go.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil The Red Sox had a wild 13th with a walk, a steal, an infield hit and an error before taking a 2-1 lead.Brock Holt drew a leadoff walk and stole second. Pinch-hitter Eduardo Nunez got flipped on his back by catcher Austin Barnes as he chased Scott Alexander’s wild pitch.Nunez then reached on a nubber to the right side and Alexander bungled the toss to first, allowing Holt to score. Nunez got knocked on his back again on the play at first, but stayed in the game as Boston had no one left on its bench.The Dodgers tied it 2-all in the bottom of the 13th. Muncy drew a leadoff walk and tagged up when Nunez tumbled into the third base stands after catching Bellinger’s pop foul. Muncy scored when Kinsler botched the throw to first on Puig’s infield single.Bradley Jr. tied it at 1 with a drive off closer Kenley Jansen in the eighth.The Dodgers led 1-0 on Joc Pederson’s two-out homer in the third.Both teams squandered numerous chances. The Red Sox stranded runners in the 10th and 11th. The Dodgers left runners on in every inning from the fifth to the 11th.Boston had runners at the corners in the 10th. Pedro Baez walked J.D. Martinez with one out and took third on Holt’s single to center.Bellinger started a sensational, inning-ending double play from center field, catching Nunez’s pinch-hit fly and then firing to catcher Austin Barnes a few feet up the third-base line. Barnes made the tag as Kinsler came barreling past and both players tumbled to the dirt.The game began in 78-degree heat — 31 degrees warmer than at Fenway Park for the first two games.

But veteran second baseman Ian Kinsler’s wide throw on a two-out grounder by Yasiel Puig let Los Angeles score the tying run.“Had the last out in my glove and couldn’t get it over there. It’s tough to swallow,” Kinsler said.“I feel like I let the team down right there,” he said.Said Red Sox manager Alex Cora: “It was just a bad night.”“We had some situations that we could have put them away and then we didn’t. And at the end we paid the price,” he said.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

Mother Gives Birth to Quintuplets, Loses One

first_imgA mother, Mamakor Dessah, has given birth to quintuplets (five babies at one time) without any complications.Said birth is the first such delivery in the nation’s history, according to Nurse Felicia Broh’s report.The mother of the babies said the five children were born normally, without her undergoing any operation as many people have experienced in such deliveries of more than one child.According to Mamakor,  the mother of the five, she delivered them at the Sinji hospital in Grand Cape Mount County on June 14, 2014.  But she was immediately  transferred at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center  in Sinkor, Monrovia, because the children needed to be placed in  incubators due to the  their smallness in size.Mrs. Dessah said that of the four surviving children, three are girls plus one boy. Two of the children are currently on oxygen while all the four remain in the incubator.Mamakor told the Daily Observer she was unable to breast feed the four babies she had given birth to as they need a lot of milk, health facilities and clothes, “which I don’t have the hand to provide them,” she said.“We don’t have the support  for the children, because their needs are many, like milk, clothes and health services. They also need to be on regular medication to keep them healthy, and food.”Mamakor Dessah, who lay very still and could hardly say a word, was assisted by nurses and relatives, including her husband who went to visit her after the safe delivery.Also speaking to the Daily Observer, the quintuplets’ father, Seminah Dessah, said, “I was confused and did know what to do when they called me and told me that my wife had given birth to five children at once. I did not know what to do at the beginning, but I just had to come because I could not escape my responsibility; the news was heavy, but I had to accept it.”He further stated that prior to his wife’s delivery of the quintuplets, they already had four children. During her first delivery, she had one child. The second delivery produced twins but, according to him, the twin children did not live.The third pregnancy produced triplets, making them the parents of four children before the birth of the quintuplets.According to Mr. Dessah, his wife’s recent delivery of five babies, one of whom did not survive, makes eight in all the number of children born unto them.Seminah Dessah is at the moment calling on all people of goodwill, all humanitarian organizations, both Christian and Islamic, and the Government of Liberia to kindly help support the children.“I am a farmer that don’t have any means of support [for] all of these children.  All I have to give them is father’s love and care. We are unable even to provide the milk that is needed for their daily consumption.”  Anyone wishing to reach out to the quintuplets, their parents and family are asked kindly to contact the Daily Observer at the corner of Benson and McDonald Streets.  We may be reached 0886 812-888, 0886 472-772, 077 472-772 and 0886 631-025.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Spain face World Cup date with destiny against Iran

first_img0Shares0000Spain celebrate a goal in their opening World Cup match against Portugal © AFP / Nelson AlmeidaKAZAN, Russian Federation, Jun 19 – Spanish playmaker Isco says Wednesday’s match against Iran will determine their World Cup destiny as they seek to register their first win in Russia following a gripping 3-3 draw against Portugal.Champions in 2010 and among the favourites this year, Spain’s World Cup ambitions were kept in check, almost single-handedly, by a stunning Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick. The draw came just two days after Spain’s campaign was thrown into disarray by the shock sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui following an untimely announcement by Real Madrid that he would join the 13-times European champions after the tournament.Fernando Hierro, Spain’s sporting director, is now at the helm but barely a week into the tournament La Roja — expected to join Brazil, Germany and France in the latter stages — have endured more drama than they would have wanted or expected.“It’s a crucial match that will determine our World Cup destiny,” said Isco. “We want to score from the opening minute, even though that won’t be easy.“We will stick to the style that defines us as a team, but we have to pass the ball around a lot more and maintain possession. If we play quickly across the pitch, the chances will come. I hope we score quickly.”Iran kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win against Morocco, thanks to a late own goal by Aziz Bouhaddouz, piling the pressure on Spain at Kazan Arena on Wednesday.Iran sit top of the pile as the only Group B team with a win so far, an achievement that sparked incredible celebrations in the streets of Tehran and elsewhere throughout the Islamic republic.Coach Carlos Queiroz concedes Iran now face one of the biggest challenges in their World Cup history, but maintains they can “make the impossible possible”.– ‘Universe Cup final’ –“If the game against Morocco was the World Cup final for us, the game against Spain will be the Universe Cup final,” said the former Real Madrid coach.“It was not a miracle that we won. What can happen once in a while is a group of people, when they are united, can create super stories and super things.“Our attitude is to try and make the impossible possible.”Yet keeping the Spanish armada at bay to claim the point that would boost hopes of qualifying for the last 16 looks a tall order.Iran have never beaten a European side at a World Cup — their only previous victory was a 2-1 win over the United States in France in 1998.Despite the frustration of conceding an 88th-minute equaliser to Ronaldo following two goals from Diego Costa and a stunning strike from Nacho, Isco believes Spain’s resolve remains intact.“We had a setback but we stuck together and got on with the job,” he said.“We saw that in the first match. We never gave up, even after conceding a goal in the fourth minute. That shows what this team is all about. We’ll never stop fighting.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

REVEALED: INCREDIBLE BOYHOOD PICTURE OF DONEGAL NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING SCIENTIST

Photo Brian McDaidIT’S a picture from a lifetime ago.Donegal’s Nobel Prize-winning scientist William C Campbell – better known as Bill – is pictured with his two older brothers in the summer of 1939.The snap of Bill and his older brothers Lexie and Bert was taken in a studio in Derry. Bert, now 88, still lives in Ramelton where he runs Ardleen Country House with his wife Anne.“It was taken  just before the outbreak of World War Two,” said Bert.It wasn’t long before Bert and Lexie were getting ready to go to Campbell College to boarding school. Their father ran the shop in The Mall where Whoriskeys now is.“But we didn’t go to Belfast,” said Bert. “War broke out and Campbell College was converted into a military hospital so we ended up going to school at the Northern Counties Hotel in Portrush.“By the time Bill was ready to go, the war was over so he was able to go to the school in Belfast.”Professor Bill won his Nobel Prize for his work on medications to fight viruses affecting millions of people particularly in developing countries.“I always think of Ramelton,” said Bill.“I’ll always be from there; I show a picture of The Mall at the start of all my lectures to show students where I’m from. I’m a proud Donegal man and proud to be from Ramelton.” Bert and Anne Cambell in Ramelton Co.

Marikana a lesson for us all: Motlanthe

first_img7 September 2012 The Marikana tragedy should serve as a challenge for South Africans to reassess how the country tackles poverty and inequality, and to find a common vision to ensure more inclusive growth going forward, says Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe. “It also challenges us to recommit ourselves to more effective social dialogue at national and regional level,” Motlanthe said on Friday. He was speaking at the opening of the annual National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) summit in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg. Other speakers at the summit included trade union federation Cosatu’s general secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi, and businessman Raymond Parsons. Forty-four people were killed, including two police officers, during clashes between striking Lonmin platinum mine workers and the police in Marikana, North West province last month. President Jacob Zuma has appointed a judicial commission of inquiry to probe the incident. Motlanthe said while the events would be fully investigated, South Africans needed to learn from the tragedy and find a common vision in order to take the country forward. “Now is the time to begin laying the basis for a social contract for our labour relations and our labour market that will contribute to achieving a more equitable and inclusive form of economic growth,” he said. The government this week stressed the need to maintain stability and confidence in the country’s mining sector, cautioning those who sought to incite violence to refrain from doing so. Motlanthe, in a bid to assure investors, on Friday said the year to date had seen important milestones for South Africa, including a 2.7 percent increase in gross domestic product in the first quarter of 2012 and a further 3.2 percent growth in the 2nd quarter. Although the country had not recovered the jobs it lost during the 2008-09 global financial crisis, more than 320 p000 jobs had been created in the formal sector between mid-2011 and this year. “There are grounds for cautious optimism that the economy may be moving into a more stable phase of growth,” Motlanthe said. However, he cautioned that many risks remained in the international economic environment, saying a lot depended on how the eurozone crisis was resolved. Working for continued positive growth in the economy would be the most important way in which South Africa addressed poverty and unemployment, Motlanthe said. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

This Week in SMB Tech: Bye Bye DimDim, Analytics in 2011 and Google Docs For iOS

first_imgKeeping up with every RSS feed item and tweet is hard enough for anybody, let alone someone trying to run a business. That’s why at the end of every week, ReadWriteBiz rounds up the week’s most important tech news and insights for small and medium-sized businesses.The Web conferencing service DimDim was acquired by Salesforce this week, marking the beginning the end of an affordable service favored by small businesses. DimDim users were notified that their free accounts would be disabled by March 11, 2011, as Salesforce prepares to integrate the technology into Chatter, their real-time collaboration product. Our own Alex Williams used the occasion to discuss the inherent risk in using a free service and outlined some of the logistical details of DimDim’s impending demise. We may be one week into 2011, but the predictions for the upcoming year keep rolling in. This week, Forrester and Gartner both made predictions about the future of analytics in business. Analytics will increasingly be built into business operations, with a focus on mobile, social, cloud-based and real-time analytics. Klint Finley wrote a thorough run-down of the predictions over on ReadWriteEnterprise. Here on ReadWriteBiz, we took a close look at Google Docs for iOS, which we found to be sufficient solution for basic document editing on the go, but the product still has a long way to go. Audrey Watters looked at 10 data security trends for small and medium-sized businesses in 2011 and reported on a study demonstrating that Gmail’s Priority Inbox feature shaves off 6% of time spent managing email. Yelp has been around for awhile, but it can still be a challenge for local businesses who aren’t sure how to make the most of the user-generated review site. We spoke to Luther Lowe, Yelp’s Manager of Local Business Outreach about how small, bricks-and-mortar businesses can do exactly that.
